Dennis Cox with Live Events Missouri was the biggest Godsend any bride could ask for. From the beginning to the end, he was professional, prompt, incredibly easy to access (emails, texts, calls), oh and FUN!! I planned my own wedding, so he helped ask the right trigger... Read More questions, made sure he had all the family names right, and paid great attention to detail. We ended up using him for our ceremony and reception, and the ceremony music was fabulous (and we didn't have to worry about an iPod not playing or not working), and he beat our guests back to the reception and had the whole light show and music playing.. we ordered a gobo light through him as well in a script monogram 'M' and it all looked AMAZING together. Dennis stayed so calm, he kept the party alive and fed the party all the appropriate music. It was just wonderful. Also? He doesn't drink during the party. What a true, fun, easy to work with professional person. If you DON'T hire him, you're crazy!! Clay and I absolutely loved him and what he did for us.. and so did the rest of our guests. Our reception was the best party we've ever been to! THANK YOU DENNIS!

Dennis did an amazing job at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. We had him do the ceremony and and then DJ the reception. He arrived early and was all set up and ready to go. He immediately asked for a timeline so he would know exactly what was happening next. He had... Read More even asked ahead of time what the appropriate attire would be for our venue/weather. The music for the ceremony was timed perfectly! Following the ceremony, Dennis went over to the reception venue and had music ready to go as our guests arrived. We didn't give him exact songs to play for the reception . . . we just gave him an idea of what we were looking for and the songs that he chose were exactly what we wanted! The volume of the music was great. We never felt the need to yell over the music to be heard. He created a nice relaxing atmosphere. We had forgotten to ask him ahead of time to announce a "dinner trivia" game and the "shoe game". He was more than willing to help us with that and did a great job with it. Once the dancing part of the reception started, he played very appropriate songs for our families. We had originally planned on doing all the music ourselves but decided to go with a DJ. Dennis was recommended by a friend and we are more than happy that we did. He was amazing!

We first met Dennis Cox when he was the DJ at one of our relatives weddings and we soon made our first crucial decision in the wedding planning process. It was the easiest, most reasonable, best decision we made. He is a true pro and a great guy, too! Dennis actually suggested... Read More our venue and several other vendors for us...which we also fell in love with! He made the planning process so easy! We simply made suggestions and allowed him the freedom to do what he does best. We were thrilled with the results. On our big day, Dennis' professionalism amazed us. I, the bride, was surprised to see his equipment there before my husband and I arrived for our "first look photos" prior to the ceremony. Speaking of equipment, we were happy to see that it wasn't easily visible. It was unobtrusive. The sound quality was excellent and the microphones weren't visible. Dennis was the utmost professional throughout the evening. He dressed appropriate for the occasion, didn't drink (I've heard horror stories about other DJ's), and was focused on doing the best job possible. During the reception, he was in tune with the crowd and kept them moving. He has a keen sense of what works, and we are extremely grateful. In addition to his skills as a DJ, he cared about making the event shine. He added the perfect uplighing, which set the right mood and looked great in our pictures, as well! We can't say enough great things about Dennis. He is a seasoned professional, so trust him to take care of you and your guests. It'll be the best decision you make for your wedding!
