The dance floor was packed non-stop from the end of dinner/toasts to the end of the last dance. I've never been to a wedding where everyone from 10 year old nieces and nephews to 75 year old grandparents had so much fun dancing the entire night, and I was so excited that it happened at my wedding! My friends and family have been so complimentary of DJ Earl and the Photo Booth crew from My DJs, and I have been and will continue to recommend them to everyone I know!

We hired Deondre Essex with My DJ's for our October 2016 wedding and WOW! Deondre is AMAZING! It's almost impossible to put into words how fantastic he was.

The day of the wedding Deondre did all our music (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) and it all went absolutely perfect. He incorporated all the line dancing songs perfectly and even came out on the floor to teach a couple he knew for all the guests. He kept the dance floor packed until 11PM and I'm sure he could have kept the party going all night! I was so blown away with the care and attention he showed for our big day. He is an extremely talented DJ and just so nice and funny and just a joy to be around. I can't wait for some of my friends get married soon so I can tell them to choose Deondre!

His office is very simple when you first walk in but then in the back he has an entire studio set up so you get the exact feel of what his services would look and feel like.

We were thankful that he had gone to our venue multiple times so he knew that it is on top of submarine base and that using bluetooth microphones were probably not going to work due to the signal being cut out. He was right and the day of our wedding when he went to test the signal and when he saw it was poor he switched to wired microphones so the sound would be clear and perfect.
