Music was very important to myself and my husband at our wedding. We both love to dance and wanted to work with someone who could keep the party mood while still making sure all of our guests were comfortable and having fun. On a recommendation from our caterer, we got in contact with Quantum Music Event Planners and specifically Jason Shires. Jason definitely delivered! Our dance floor was packed from the first song until the last and we received so many compliments on the music! Jason was really able to understand the vibe we were going for and incorporate a variety of songs for a variety of generations. He was also very accommodating. When I asked for a very specific YouTube cover song for my walk down the aisle he didn’t bat an eye and made it happen. We had so much fun at our wedding and I can honestly say much of that was due to the tone Jason set. We are so happy with our choice to work with QMEP and Jason and would recommend them for any party, wedding, or event!
Once we spoke with Jason there was huge sense of relief. We used QPP for Day-of wedding coordination, our DJ and Lighting. When we first met with Jason we realized he was perfect for us. He helped us figure out the flow of our day and got us to think about details we wouldn't have on our own. Our wedding day was executed perfectly, and if there were any snags, we did not know about them! Perfect. If you're DIY'ing your own wedding planning I highly recommend using QPP for day-of... hand the execution over to the professionals and you'll enjoy your day so much more.
Quantum is the BEST!Reviewed on 7/29/2015 Casie M
Quantum is the best! A pleasure to work with from the very first inquiry to the last song of the night at our wedding! Jason was committed from the very beginning to help us create the wedding of my dreams. Jason kept the party moving from start to finish. In addition to his Dj expertise, he was also able to help me with decor and lighting and a great photographer. We could not be more pleased with our experience and would definitely use Quantum again and/or recommend to anyone! So much fun to work with :) Thanks for making our wedding a party to remember!
We had an excellent experience working with Jason at Quantum Party Productions! We were referred to Jason's company and reached out to him, to which he promptly responded back. Jason provided us with a personal touch, taking the time to get to know us in person and handling all of our questions and requests himself. We went thoroughly over the logistics of our wedding, and walked us through what types of services his company offered, and even giving us a demonstration of the dj equipment. By the end of the meeting, we were very comfortable and so decided to go with his company. We cannot say enough of how Jason was so personable, professional and accommodating. He even provided us with samples of musics, along with a list of different songs and artists across various genres of music to help us choose the right songs for each event. We greatly appreciated him providing his recommendations as well and his validation of our song choices in that they would work within each of our events. With 3 days to the wedding, we ended up having to change the ceremony from outdoors to indoors, and Jason was once again very flexible and accommodating and very promptly responded back to us which is exactly what you want when you're trying to deal with big last minute changes 3 days before the wedding. It's not just dj service that his company provides; they are like a one-stop shop, and were able to provide us with lighting, dance floor and chair rentals. It made it super convenient to get all this through one company versus working with multiple vendors. Jason went above and beyond by drawing up diagrams on how to our outdoor reception lighting would look like over the guest tables, etc. On top of all that, Jason coordinated with the our venue himself, relieving us of the stresses of being the middleman. He confidently assured us that he could handle it and ended up being true to his word. He was there personally to make sure his crew set up to our vision and checked in on us towards the end of the night to make sure all was going well. We cannot thank him enough and highly recommend him for your big day.
We used Quantum Party Productions (Jason) for our wedding at the SF Ritz Carlton and were SO HAPPY with the result. They crushed it. The executive summary is: super easy to work with, great ideas for the flow of the wedding, amazing photobooth, and did an amazing job keeping the trains running on time through the reception. First, we met Jason at his office in Fidi, which was very convenient. He had a binder that made many of our reception choices easy. Being certified wedding planners, he also had many ideas for how to sequence out the reception, suggestions for the various dances, etc. He made us feel very confident that the reception would go off without a hitch. Our photobooth vendor completely flaked a week before the wedding (something that is a serious problem with small vendors of weddings). Luckily, Jason was right there. The photobooth props were the best I've ever seen at a wedding and the photobooth attendant was simply incredible. He was so helpful in suggesting props, getting people fired up, and keeping everything moving. I don’t think I've ever been to a wedding where the photobooth guy didn't mail it in, but the attendant Jason had was amazing. Finally, Jason on the wedding day was awesome. Without giving him individual song recommendations, he played music that had all our guests (including the older people) up and dancing literally all night. He was also amazing at keeping our timeline moving, reminding us to cut the cake, coordinating the light levels in the room. He truly owned his responsibility of making sure the reception was a success.
We received so many compliments from our guests about our photo booth and DJ!! Absolutely a fun program to add on for our wedding! The printing quality of the photos is the best we've ever seen. Plus there were all kinds of fun props! We really had a lot of fun. Jason was really fun to work with. He was able to customize the time as we were having string quartet for the first half of our wedding. We really had the best time!
Best DJ ever!Jason and Quantum Party Productions is the way to go! We had DJ Jason at our wedding last week and we had so many compliments on the great music and even requests for the playlist. He has a really great sound set up and offers several other services including lighting and photo booths for a great deal when booking together. Working with him was effortless because he knows his music, can read the crowd, and his event experience was evident on how professional and knowledgeable he was in knowing how to throw an amazing event. One of the best vendors I've worked with. It really made it easier to enjoy our special day.
Thanks to Jenna and team for a great event. Overall, the music was exactly what we wanted and kept people dancing all night long! I did receive comments that it was difficult to hear or understand announcements. Also, the lighting I had requested in the proposal/quote was not executed at the event. All in all, the music was great and Jenna was just what we wanted!
I highly recommend Jason to DJ your wedding. Jason was a joy to work with esp as our daughter lives on the east coast and we had a budget, given a wedding in CT with the reception in CA the week after. Jason made lots of suggestions that all made sense, and saved us money. He was very friendly and approachable. The music was great at the reception.
Music was very important to us and a DJ is one of the vendors we were very picky on. I am SO happy we picked Jason because we couldn't have found a better DJ for our wedding. He played exactly the vibe we were looking for and our guests loved it! You know it's a great party when the guests keep asking for "just one more song" after he already played 4 "last songs" and the lights are already on. Not only that but you can't beat the price! Book him now before he realizes he's undercharging for how great he is ;) Also, he is extremely easy to work with which is important to all brides planning a wedding. Seriously...you need to book him!!
We used QMEP for lighting and for the Photo Booth service. Jason was very prompt and detailed in his responses. Their Photo Booth service was WONDERFUL. I liked the vintage style that allowed us to fit a lot of people but still allowed for couples to take photos. Their unique props were a HUGE hit and some even found their way to the dance floor. The man running the booth was SUPER helpful and friendly. They even compiled a scrapbook with all of the photos in it and mailed it to me. They exceeded my expectations from start to finish! Would highly recommend QMEP!
We hired them to DJ, light our venue, heat our venue, and do our photobooth. The photobooth was a smash hit, everyone loved it. The lighting was gorgeous, the heat was appreciate. The DJ was awesome. Listened to our needs and kept the party going.
We discovered Quantum through a bridal show in the SF Presidio. The owner, Jason, was very friendly and approachable from the start, and it was great working with him. The company overall was very accommodating, friendly, and they really listened to what we wanted and how we wanted music and lighting to enhance our day. The cost was very reasonable and the quality was great. The only issue we had was during the ceremony. We were supposed to have mics for both the bride and groom and we did not receive them. The situation was handled very well and we still ended up very satisfied with the services we received. Recommend to everyone. :)
I cannot begin to thank Jason and his team at QMEP enough for the terrific event that they put on for our wedding. Not only was Jason impeccable in terms of following through on all the big and smalls details of our wedding, but he always did everything with a certain calmness and grace, which goes a long ways given the natural stresses that come with organizing a wedding. He was very easy to work with and flexible in terms of supporting our music choices and then filling in the gaps with music that matched our requested genres, styles, and personalities. Jason also introduced the entire wedding party into the reception exactly the way we had asked him to do so. I highly recommend Jason and his team to anyone, including friends who may be getting married in the coming years. Thanks again, Jason! From Jesse and Meghan
Excellent!Reviewed on 10/24/2015 Sarah H
Jason was an excellent DJ who read the crowd and kept everyone dancing. He facilitated the evening and MC'd the whole event. He was timely and kept everyone on schedule by giving relevant people a heads up as we moved through the wedding day schedule. He also provided the up lighting and market lights for the dance floor which looked AMAZING as well as the photo booth. The whole evening was perfect!
Incredible DJ and Photo BoothReviewed on 10/09/2015 Jess M
QMEP was our DJ and also provided a photo booth for the total cost. Both were a complete hit! We worked with Jason, who was friendly, and easy to work with. He was also the best DJ ever -- great music selection and our dance floor was packed the whole night! The photo booth was also such a fun addition to the reception and we have loved looking at people's hilarious pictures. I highly recommend that you use QMEP as your DJ and do the photo booth add on. They are amazing and also affordable!
An amazing day!Reviewed on 2/03/2015
QMEP surpassed any of our expectations! Jason asked us all the right questions to get the perfect mood of the day. The music was perfect, the ambiance hit the mark and the dancing was amazing! The lighting gave the venue the touch it needed and everyone loved it. Our guests have continuously commented on how great the music and dancing was and how wonderful Jason was as our DJ. They loved his involvement in the celebration and how he engaged our guests. It honestly couldn't have been more perfect! If you're looking for a DJ, music, lighting, anything for your day, QMEP is the vendor to go with. January 17th was truly one of the best days of our lives.
A little spotty on communication but otherwise FANTASTIC!Reviewed on 1/22/2015
Jason and his team gave us exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Michael, our actual DJ on the day of, was Johnny on the spot with announcements and played just what we wanted to hear (and nothing we didn't). Dustin and Reed were great on the photobooth, and since we had so many people wanting to take photos we ran out of paper, so they offered to take everything back to their office, finish the scrapbook, and send it to us. We did have one glitch two weeks before the wedding where we couldn't seem to get a hold of Jason, which was disconcerting, but other than that one occurrence Jason was great to work with. These guys really know what they're doing. And the value is unbeatable!
Excellent valueReviewed on 10/28/2014 kate f

Great Experience with QMEP (DJ & Lighting)Reviewed on 10/08/2014 Barbara G
We used QMEP for DJ/MC and lighting. We found them on The Knot and contacted them via email. They responded immediately and were very helpful with our questions/concerns. We met with Jason at his showroom and he gave us a demonstration of his DJ skills and went over the ceremony with us. He was very friendly and enthusiastic and we felt comfortable right away. After we initially signed him as the DJ, we added string lighting to our package. It was a great value compared to other DJ and lighting services that we had seen. Jason and his staff arrived early to set up the DJ booth and lighting. Everything looked great. Jason was a fantastic MC, and helped keep everything on track and moving smoothly. He helped us by giving us some direction and encouragement, which we needed since this was our first wedding! All of the cues for the ceremony and the reception were on point. It was beautiful. During the dancing portion, he had everyone on their feet. He read the crowd perfectly and kept everything upbeat and exciting. Overall, we were so happy with everything. Jason and his staff are very professional and clearly know what they are doing. We will definitely recommend QMEP to anyone looking for wedding event planning services/DJ.
Great DJReviewed on 8/03/2014 Jasmine J
I worked with Quantum Music Events to DJ my wedding in May 2014 at the Crooked Vine Winery in Livermore, Ca. I didn’t get a chance to see their showroom because I live out of state, but I was able to contact Jason Shires easily through email whenever I had a question. Our DJ was John Harris and he was spot on. The dance floor was never empty. He even managed to find a version of my parents song “Sea of Love” performed by Robert Plant, which can’t be downloaded—you have to have the album. The actual ceremony was also flawless with the music seamlessly changing from the wedding party’s song to my song for walking down the aisle. Jason Shires was also present to set up the projector equipment for the slideshow, which was a hit! Everyone loved it and it was worth the money/time to put it together. QME is a very professional team, they are quick to respond and perform admirably. Everything was perfect!
Amazing DJ!!Reviewed on 5/13/2014 Laura Y
Our wedding reception had the perfect soundtrack thanks to Jason and QMEP. From day one, even without ever meeting with him in person, we were able to scan through a very organized booklet of songs in their catalog, as well as request songs he may not have had available. We got a lot of comments from our guests about how much they loved the music. He was very respectful of our wishes not to make our reception turn into a "club" and every song that was chosen was well-received. He also provided some can lights for our photo booth. We couldn't be happier with Jason's services that day and would highly recommend him to anyone else looking for the perfect DJ!!
MusicReviewed on 1/28/2014 Sherie K
Jason got the party started and personalized it for me! We had a great time dancing it up...old and young.
Great Music Perfect DJReviewed on 10/24/2013 Teresa
We worked with Jason specifically and he was very reasonable and helpful. He was really friendly and it helped we had similar music interests. He played all our songs we really wanted and in the order or specific time we wanted them to play. He is reliable and was fun to work with. The only change would have been to reduce the volume during the dance portion of the wedding since we were a very small wedding and at times difficult to chat with guests but the music was pumping and everyone was having a great time! Thank you!
No One Is Better than QMEPReviewed on 10/10/2013
I cannot recommend Jason Shires and QMEP highly enough. He did an absolutely stupendous job at our wedding reception. He nailed the musical vibe that we were looking for throughout the various parts of the reception: cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. And he did so with minimal instruction; he just knew exactly what to do! He also was perfect as the emcee and knew exactly how to speak and when to speak. He read the crowd like an expert, graciously took requests from our guests, and even adjusted on the fly to unscheduled toasts and impromptu singing from some of the guests in attendance. Jason was a breeze to work with before, during, and after the reception. I offer him and QMEP my highest recommendation.
Meet The Owner
I started Quantum in 2001 with an idea to change the wedding industry by raising the bar of what a wedding dj does and getting people to realize how important a dj really is to a wedding. My goal was to help the profession evolve into something much more than just a guy with some sound equipment. A professional service. Customer oriented and tailored. We did just that and I love it!
