Our DJ was by far the best vendor we dealt with during the wedding. He had so many good ideas for not only the music but for many of the other aspects of our wedding. If I were to ever get married again, God forbid, I would book again.

I believe that if our wedding was amazing, it is all thanks to KC Mobile DJ. Fernando was fantastic, managing songs perfectly so that the dance floor was never empty! We also really loved the games, they are so great to set the mood. All of our interactions with KC Mobile DJ...

Nick, our DJ did a really good job. We had somewhat different requests as we needed international music including bollywood, and Nick was able to do it very well. People had a great time. Derek and Nick were very accommodating in the lead up to our event and easy to work with.

These guys deserve nothing less than 5 stars! We took advantage of their DJ service and it did not disappoint. The entire process was seamless from our first meeting, to wedding day. You can easily create your playlists (pre-ceremony, ceremony and reception) on their website,... Read More which was great. They even have a suggested playlists for specific activities (i.e. first dance, intro, cake cutting, etc.)- definitely a helpful time saver. We personally worked with Nick and he awesome- relatable, personable, upbeat, fun to work with and professional. He went out of his way to make sure they had every song we wanted (even if it wasn't a part of their playlist selection). And he handled day-of schedule changes flawlessly, which made the night easy and enjoyable for us and the staff in charge. To anyone reading this review, I highly recommend KC Mobile DJ with full confidence they will do a spectacular job!

Derek Hoffman

I come from a musically inclined family. Although. I'm the black sheep. The best I can do is push buttons. Growing up, our friends, knew our house is where the sound was, so naturally, when they started getting married, they me asked to DJ their wedding. The first one was a travesty... but I learned from it. And oddly enough, we had 2 referrals from that wedding. The next year we had 5 weddings, then 10... Now we're celebrating with 70+ couples per year. We love the joy in celebrating weddings and build unique relationships with our clients before, during and after their big day.
