"Not only did I feel like we had the best DJ with Brett, but he was one of the greatest helps on the day of our wedding. We were let down by our caterer and so many things were rushed or off schedule before the event, but Brett helped take control and ran the ceremony and reception perfectly. He also did a perfect job of music selection and kept everyone dancing an hour after we had planned."

"Brett is the absolute best. I am so particular and he was completely cool with my very specific list of dinner reception songs to be played and in what order, including even foreign songs in French and Chinese! He has a great voice for introductions and rallying the crowd. Very easy and a pleasure to work with!"
- 2016 Bride from Wedding Wire

"Thank you so much Kara. We had a wonderful wedding. Thank you so much for helping making our day so special. You were so wonderful to work with--thorough, kind, and so knowledgeable. You went out of your way to ensure that you knew the setup of the venue and guides us through the information we needed to provide you. Mike did such a great job! He was so easy to work with day of. The evening flowed perfectly. Our guests really enjoyed the music during dinner and cocktail hour, and they had a blast on the dance floor. Mike even managed to play Bohemian Rhapsody at the perfect moment to align with the fireworks. It was perfect! Thank you for all you did. You guys were wonderful. We are happy to be a reference, and have already been singing your praises to our friends. Good luck with the rest of wedding season!"

"I believe the name has changed to I Do Crew DJs and they are under new ownership by a wonderful young lady name Kara. She is a ball of energy and has an amazing personality. She is super easy to work with, crazy patient, and more then accommodating to any request. We did all the wedding work ourselves. For the reception, we were just flying by the seat of our pants and just going with it. What we didn't know was that we had a pilot. From the time our party bus dropped us off at the reception, till the time the last beer and wine slushy was gone Kara had our back and set the course. She made everything run seamlessly. DJed her a** off and made things fun. They say a great DJ makes the event and there right. We had nothing but complements about how awesome she was. Some people thought we had a really cool friend that was nice enough to DJ our event. Her communication threw out all the planning was impeccable and flexible. The pricing was on point and a great value for all that she offered. If you choose her to DJ your event you will not be disappointed. Thank you, Kara, for making our special day rock! Good luck with your new business and we wish you much success."

- Kristen McKinley - June 24th 2017 McKinley Wedding
“When looking for someone to DJ your wedding or event there’s no one better company than I Do Crew DJs. My husband and I have nothing but amazing things to say regarding this DJ company! We had Brett as our DJ on our wedding this past August! He truly helped coordinate our whole wedding and helped make things run smoothly when the wedding party wasn’t the easiest to deal with! He was great with accepting requests from guests yet sticking to what we wanted played ourselves. If we could do it all over again we would choose I Do Crew DJs over anyone! We couldn’t have asked for anyone better!”
- Cassie Harman – August 26th 2017 Harman Wedding

"If you need a DJ for reception and/or even ceremony this is the place to go. Kara our DJ was amazing with everything. From the first meeting all the way through the actual big day. She was so helpful not only with the music selection but also with setting up timelines that made it easier for all vendors to be on the same page. Her kindness & helpfulness made it easier through the very stressful planning process. On the actual day she was on top of her game with adjusting things due to other vendors messing up she kept me calm and made things run smooth. By far Kara was one of the best vendors we used and anyone would be lucky to have her. Thank you so much Kara for making my special day even more!!"

"We had an awesome night, and Mike was really amazing, including when he broke the "last song" rule to play ONE MORE. "Amanda" is a special song to me--I was named after it (it's the only way my parents could agree on a name) and the only time I've wanted to hear it was at my wedding. I can't say enough good things about you guys, and will make sure to refer you to anyone who comes along--you're incredibly easy to work with and did a great job. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I Do Crew did an awesome job with our wedding ceremony and reception! When meeting prior to the wedding day to pick out songs, Brett had great suggestions and was able to find every song we wanted to play. During the reception he took song suggestions in stride, but also stuck to the plan we had created prior to the wedding day! Brett went above and beyond our expectations. He truly looked after the wedding party and guest to make sure everything was going as planned! Guest were dancing all night and were very complimentary! Thank you to the I Do Crew for help making our wedding day a success!!!"
