myself can't say enough complimentary words to express how impressed and happy
we were with your involvement in our Walk last Sunday. We all feel that you did
a fantastic job, and the energy level in the caf was something we've rarely seen
(and most of us have been doing this for over 10 years).
with Cynthia to produce those slides was flawless and you made it look easy--the
walkers loved it.
Again Jim, job well
done (and thanks for playing my two favourites: Rock Lobster and Old Time Rock
& Roll-- the best one ever!)

Many thanks to you and Larry for making our event such a success. We have received rave reviews. We had one event in the past, combining our Christmas party and retirement party in one. Employees told us last year there were too many speeches as we were honouring five retirees so we decided to split the event into two this year, making the Christmas event more fun. Thank you for making that happen!
We are looking into dates for next year. Will be in touch!

Hi James and Michael,
Thank you so much for an amazing performance on Thursday night! We had outstanding feedback from both our guests and staff. I’m sure you could tell by the extended performance that everyone had a blast. We heard many comments that we were the best suite at convention and for us, one of the best suites we’ve ever had!
It was a pleasure working with both of you and I look forward to many more events with you.
Thanks again. Have a great week.

I would like to thank you again for the wonderful job you did at my daughters 18th birthday. You really went above and beyond what I was expecting. Arielle and everyone else had a GREAT time at the party. They were so impressed on how you made everyone ( I mean everyone...even my 75 and 82 year old parents ) go to the dance floor. The light effect and sounds were amazing. My most favorite is MTV you played. Guests who decided to stay on their sits later in the party were just entertained by it.
My daughter kept bugging me to ask you for the title and version of the music you played during the Special Prayer, blessings and laying of hands on Arielle. Guests said it was a very emotional moment and they were all touched. Unfortunately, we forgot to assign someone to take videos, so there is nothing to go back to to watch, so I will appreciate it if you can email it to me.
Again, thank you for making me very comfortable. As I have told you before, The first time I spoke with you on the phone, I already felt that you are a person who have a good heart possibly a Christian...and I was right. It is really emanating from your words and actions, and Art and myself are really very thankful for you were the answer to our prayer.
Three years from now, my youngest daughter will be celebrating her debut as well. We will be looking forward to seeing you again.
Thank you for everything.

Hi James, We just wanted to thank you and Greg for the awesome party. Many times throughout the night and after the wedding too, people were asking who you were. I know the MC is recommending you for any future functions that Bell hosts. Our photographer stayed until the end of the night because you kept giving her great photo opps. We all had a wonderful night. Do you have something we could fill out as a recommendation? We can't say enough great things about you!! Thanks again, Amy and Terry Martin (December 29, 2007)

I'm sure you hear this quite often, but YOU ROCK!

Everyone had a fantastic time and my dad is still talking about his special night. Over the past several days I have had endless compliments on your services. The dance floor was full all night long and it was a pleasure to see how you were able to read the diverse crowd and play something for everyone! Your attention to detail and your warm and professional manner set the tone for what ended up being a fantastic night for everyone! My goal was to host a party that would reflect the unique and special man that my father is and with your help that goal was accomplished.
Thanks for helping to create memories that will be treasured by my family for many years to come. You can be assured that I will refer your name onto my family, friends and business colleagues if they are in need of DJ services. Thanks again. Warm Regards,

Re: DJ KEM & Trial By Dinner Show
I would personally like to extend my thanks and that of the entire VOLVO Trucks Canada and Mack Canada Staff, for the outstanding evening you helped us accomplished for our Christmas Party, November 30th. The event was a phenomenal success - an evening where all agreed that no Christmas Party prior to this could even compare! The atmosphere one of true "Holiday Spirit and Celebration", Thanks to your wonderful DJ. Your personal assistance and the polite, patient and friendly attitude of your staff that evening helped to make our Christmas Party one to remember for an extremely long time to come! All commented on how good the DJ (Kem) was at keeping with what everyone wanted to hear - the dance floor didn't clear all night! And still, I am receiving compliments on having had your "Trial By Dinner Show" during dinner - it couldn't have gone any better! A great time was had by all.
You will be the first choice for next year's event - and I promise to call you this time with more than 6 weeks notice!
I have been meaning to email you since June but "better late than never". My daughters were singing the "coconut song" so I was inspired. If you have no idea of which song I am talking about please forgive me. I was an MC at the wedding of Marianne and Pete Lupiano in June at Tapatoo resort. my daughters were flowergirls in the wedding as well. I wanted to extend my thanks for an absolutely fabulous time which was enjoyed by my 4 and 6 year old, my husband and myself as well as our 60 year old parents. We all commented to Marianne and Pete that is the ONLY WEDDING IN MY ENTIRE LIFE where there was ALWAYS someone on the dance floor! You had the audience so involved never mind commanding the room through your aerobic workout of a song about "coconuts in a tree." I remember the moment in time like it was playing in slow motion as I looked around and EVERYONE was singing and doing the actions along with you- the power! :o) As an MC, it was wonderful to have you explain things, calm me down and make everything roll so smoothly. I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts, professionalism and heart in making the speeches, MC experience and wedding so memorable. We had to leave at 11 that night to get the girls to bed but heard amazing feedback from other guests about you having people get involved and having a lot of fun. I have been meaning to email you to thank you and to comment that I truly believe that you are following your passion and gift. Your enthusiasm and professionalism is amazing and I can't even guess how many times you have done events/weddings and you still had such high energy and enthusiasm for your work. Take care and thanks so much for everything. My daughters are still talking about the limbo and singing that "coconut" song- thanks for that. (except when they are screaming it and doing the actions when I am driving on the highway!) You made our family's experience very memorable and I know all of other guests, family and Bride and Groom feel the same way. Any chance I can get the name and artist of that song? Thanks again Candace Vilhan (Monday October 16, 2006)
Thanks a bunch Jim!You were completely terrific.The kids had a blast! You never see them that sweaty after gym class - hey there's an idea!! Thanks again, you are an absolute pleasure to work with. I hope you'll do it again next year ??!! Lianne, Cameron Public School 2006

I just wanted to personally thank you for the wonderful and professional job that you did at Brian and Jenny's wedding, this past weekend at White Oaks. Not only were you excellent in carrying out Brian and Jenny's wishes for the music for the evening, but also your help with the other parts of the evening - the Great Canadian Kissing Game and the Newlywed Game, that you helped revise. The Newlywed Game turned out a lot better than any of us could have hoped. Feel free to let other couples know about it for their own weddings because it turned out to be a lot of fun, even if we almost lost the bride there for a bit! I know that you had to deal with a tough crowd, but I thought the music selection was very good and put together extremely well. It definitely enhanced the experience for myself, as well as for Brian and Jenny. If and when I do get married, which won't be for a long time (if I can help it!), I will definitely be giving you a call as well as recommending other friends of mine to look into your services. Good luck for the remainder of the wedding season, and possibly our paths will cross again. Great job again, Waseem (Wedding of Brian & Jenny Sept 4 2004)
Hi James, Well, we returned home, and to reality on September 20th. Hawaii was simply amazing! We ended up buying that cd that you recommended (Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - I think that's how you spell it) and just can't stop listening to it. We just wanted to express our sincere appreciation for all that you did on our Big Day to make it entertaining, fun, and memorable. You are certainly the cream of the crop and we would recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ. You're already set to do Waz's wedding, whenever that may be (hahah). Not only do you know how to have a good time, but you are professional, a pleasure to work with, and simply a nice, approachable guy. Thanks again, and all the best! Jenny and Brian.

The music was great and you were really great. It wasn't just the music it was your personality that made-it that night. I wanna thank you again, and so does Sandro. Halia
Thank You!!!! Our wedding was a great success! Everyone complemented your talents! They say it was the best wedding they had ever been too. What a party!

Greg was very professional and a pleasure to deal with and the type of music was exactly what we were hoping for. Many thanks, and I look forward to recommending Black Tie to others. Have a great day.
James, thanks for being an awesome DJ at our wedding on August 17 2002 at Niagara-on-the-Lake. I called a few people who provided DJ services and found they couldn't provide me with the comfort level I needed to trust them that all things would go well. That is until I called you. I got your info from Queen's Landing and decided that you were worth a try. I'm glad I did, because after talking with you for the first time, you made me feel as though I was having a conversation with a professional that could provide the service I needed. You were more than able to accommodate the kinds of requests I made, working with my MC's and simply taking care of the entire audio aspect of our entertainment. In addition to that, the party was amazing and I know that everyone had a blast...and I only ordered your entry level DJ package! I can't imagine how much better it would be if I had ordered your Interactive or Mr. Saturday Night show. Well, I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your level of service and professional presentation.
