You are the real deal! Thank you for your message and for producing the results you promised. The Post Prom Party was success in every way and you were key to that success. I do not know what next year’s chairs have in mind for a DJ- but I can say for sure that Nancy and I highly recommend booking you for 2019.”

With thanks – you guys are great!

Marlinda Fulton, annual meeting Ritz Carlton Reynolds Lake Oconee, June 16, 2018

“We enjoyed DJ Ricky very much! He was approachable, courteous and an absolute delight. His skills and talents made this event a memorable pleasure. He really turned it into a party! People were engaged and still making music requests up until the very end. He was awesome, in fact it was the best holiday party we’ve had. Thanks so much, we can’t wait to do it again.”

Dee Douglas, Holiday Party, Ritz Carlton Reynolds Lake Oconee, December 14, 2017

To top the night off, he perfectly timed patriotic music to our fireworks display. All in all, a really great event!”

I have nothing but great things to say about Ricky. He was honestly the best guy for our wedding – you couldn’t have recommended a better DJ. My mom and dad both said they loved him, and I received numerous other comments (good ones) from guests and relatives stating he was a big hit. He was great with the kids, and played just the right variety of music to get the older couples dancing on the floor as well as the younger ones. He even got my former scoutmaster to break out into a dance with his wife! 🙂 I remember him filling up the dance floor completely (with our guests) and then got out there with us to lead everyone with the dance moves. That was definitely a lot of fun – I’m glad he got interactive. Overall, he showed up on time, introduced himself to me, and made sure he was on top of any last minute requests / changes that came our way. Real professional, personable and flexible. The ceremony went off exactly as planned too. He played all our requested tracks, and set the mood perfectly. I didn’t have to think about any of the details. He took care of everything and with a top notch work ethic. Oh, and the guy gave me a hug at the end of the reception (as I was thanking him) just before we we made our exit! I know some people might find that a little odd, but he really came off as a solid family guy and made our wedding a very special day. I appreciate him being down to earth and non-corporate with us. I would definitely use him again if the need arose, and I have no problem recommending him to anyone else I know who may need a DJ in the future. Thanks again for all your time and effort in helping us!

He DJ’d at both our ceremony and the reception. It’s important, very important to me, that you know some of the reasons that Tony and I were so pleased that we had Ricky as a major part of our wedding day. Ricky listened to and understood the kind of people we are. He understood what kind of music/artists we liked and which ones we didn’t. I know that you know, that in your industry that kind of talent is crucial to ensuring a happy and successful event. We grew up (teen years) in the 70’s and he played quite a bit of that music and then the party really got going with so many fun songs – She’s A Very Kinky Girl/Rick James (wait, I’m not sure that Ricky even knows this – myself and another girl at our wedding partied with Rick James in the early 80’s at The Palladium in NYC!), Bilie Jean, Run Around Sue and on and on – everyone was having so much fun – it was wonderful! Once people got on the dance floor he kept them out there. He even humored some of our guests who wanted us, folks that I worked with in the past, to dance to We Are Family one more time.

The staff on Club Level told us all the next morning that our wedding was the best and most fun they’ve ever seen – a large part of that was the music – they were still talking about the music when we left 7 days later.
