We have been to many weddings and so have our friends. There was a comment that was commonly said about our wedding; “I have never been to a wedding where everyone was enjoying themselves on the dance floor throughout the whole night!
DJ Sota was able to make our wedding upbeat when it needed energy to get both our older and younger crowd on the dance floor. I highly recommend DJ Sota to all of our friends and family, especially anyone looking to have a professional, fun, and experienced DJ.
Thank you SO much DJ Sota Entertainment. You really did a fantastic job. Justin was once married before and he hated how loud the DJ was at his wedding. That was his big request, to have good music/DJ this time…and he was so happy! I’m very happy with your choices, I know I requested many songs and I was amazed how well you knew what music I wanted! I only talked to a few guests after the wedding, but we already got comments on how good you were. I’m so happy you were my DJ! Thank you so much! I will recommend you to all my friends!
DJ Sota was awesome. We loved him! All of our guests were commenting on how great the music was. We couldnt have asked for a better DJ!! He helped to make our wedding perfect. Would recommend him to anyone having a wedding. Thanks.
Dakota was the most professional and experienced DJ that we could have had. He was on early, set up on time, took care of EVERY detail and was in touch with me and my coordinator all through our event. I would highly recommend him for any event, he is the BEST! We loved his personality and his attention to every thing we went over before the wedding. He made it a wonderful day for my family and friends.
