I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the excellent job you did for the Eric Hamber Grad last Saturday evening. We have used your services for three occasions now and have found you to be excellent and consistent in all aspects. You have always been punctual with your setup time, played great music, and for what we have received are very reasonably priced. Student Services Network plans to use your services for all our future music needs. Thanks again for your excellent service.

I wanted to let you know that your contribution to our Graduation celebration on March 23rd at the Hyatt Regency made our evening so enjoyable. People raved about everything you did! Everyone enjoyed the whole event from start to finish. We will be in touch for next year. Thanks again.

If anyone wants to know.
David is quite simply the perfect wedding MC and an incredible DJ. He's extremely comfortable in front of a crowd (a nod to his background in theatre and education) and has an incredible knack for balancing heartfelt moments with humour. His energy and enthusiasm are truly contagious. Many of our guests commented that he was the best master of ceremonies they had ever seen! Our wedding was filled with the unexpected (a windstorm knocked the power out!) but David kept the day on schedule. We can't recommend his services enough to those seeking a warm and personalized service!
Thanks again for your service!
