  • We had Steve from Absolute Music at a semi-formal work event and he did a fantastic job! He was very professional and timely with his communication. He also played music that our attendees enjoyed and helped bring more life to our event. He did a great job at reading our crowd and playing music accordingly, which is huge! I would recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ.

  • We loved working with Steve for our wedding. If you are looking for a night where your guests of all ages can be entertained, Steve is your guy! He had music for every age, played the requested songs we had given him on our list, and took charge of the whole night, so all we needed to do was show up! It was great, and probably the least stressful thing we arranged our entire planning process. Steve was prompt in contacting us, he arranged a meeting with us 1 month prior to the wedding to talk about details of the night, and gave us time to get back to him on things we weren't quite sure of yet. Steve was professional and thought of many things we hadn't. He also gave great suggestions of things that we didn't have an opinion on, or didn't know about! The day of the wedding the bridal party put together a surprise dance, and Steve was able to play it and announce it with ease- like it had been planned all along! :-) Great DJ- highly recommended!

  • I highly recommend Absolute Music DJ services. He knows music genres and what it takes to support the wedding from beginning to end. We meet with him twice plus utilized planning via emails and attached document. He listens and offers great suggestions due to his experience. I highly recommend Steve from Absolute Music DJ Services.

  • Steve did an amazing job at our wedding. He met with us before the big day and walked through the whole timeline and each specific dance song that we wanted. At the reception he did a great job announcing all of our party members. He had all of our guests out on the dance floor the entire night. It was a great time and everyone really enjoyed it. I would recommend him to anyone getting married.

  • I would highly reccommend using Steve from Absolute Music for your wedding. I met him at the Bridal Forum in Des Moines and decided to go with him after learning that he DJs a lot at Jester Park Lodge where I was getting married at. It was a great decision. He promptly mailed me a music planning sheet to start filling out for songs we wanted for our reception. I also had him play the music for the ceremony as well, as we got married and had the whole event right there at the lodge. He was very prompt in replying to any emails I sent him asking any questions. I contacted him a couple of weeks before the wedding as suggested to make an appointment for my fiance and I to meet with him to go over the music selections, and he arrived on time for our meeting with him at Panera Bread. He made sure to ask during our meeting how we wanted things worded, how to pronounce certain names so they wouldn't be misprounounced, and offered suggestions on the order of what dances to have when. Even after... Read more

  • My husband and I knew we wanted Steve to be the DJ at our daughter's wedding after attending a friend's wedding where he was the DJ there. Steve makes the reception so much fun, and I received many compliments about him. I would highly recommend Absolute Music DJ Service.

  • Steve was really easy to work with. We met twice before the wedding day. The first meeting was to talk and get to know the basics of the wedding, ceremony, times, places etc. Between the first and second meetings he e-mailed us a form of the music that we wanted to be played for each dance, the bride and bride, the parents' names and the bridal parties names for the grand entrance. The second meeting was a week before the wedding where we went over the form that we filled out together, we taught him how to pronounce everyone's names, and gave him the "play and do not play" list for the reception. Everything went smoothly! The grand entrance was perfect, all of our "must play" songs were played and vice versa, and the best part was once the dance floor opened up to everyone people were instantly on the dance floor and never left. We had at least 30-40 people on the dance floor at any given time. Everyone enjoyed the music and we danced all night! I would recommend Steve again.

  • It was a pleasure to have Steve DJ my wedding ceremony and reception. My husband and I met with his wife Marcia for our prewedding meeting and she was very friendly and helpful- she knew exactly what questions to ask and was able to answer our questions easily. On the day of Steve played for our ceremony, which was wonderfully done, and then he played for our reception. My husband and I were grateful that he went through the list of names with us before announcing us to the guests, we did not have any issues with mispronounced names. Steve also did a fantastic job reading our guests, when things slowed down he managed to get more people on the dance floor and he played slow songs throughout the night, which caused a nice flow. The one negative thing that happened that night was that he played our grand exit some too soon and then had to come up with a different song, but the song he picked was the PERFECT ending to the night and even I was not upset about the mix up. I would wholeheart... Read more

  • This DJ service is terrible. When we initially met with the owner Steve, he forgot about the meeting and finally showed up over an hour after we called to find out if he was planning on coming. The night of our reception, he showed up an hour late and blamed his computer. During the reception, he refused to take requests from the brides mother, the one paying for the service. The DJ during the reception didn't play slow songs like requested by the bride and groom and made a few very disrespectful comments that was out of line and rude. Very unprofessional. I would never go with this DJ service again. It's not worth the hassle.

    responded with the following comments.

    This is totally unexpected and not an accurate description of what took place. While I was later than I expected to arrive at this reception due to my home computer crashing and taking most of the day to get fixed, I was set up with music playing by the scheduled time. I did play many slow songs as previously requested and pointed out that to continue the slow songs after the dollar dance was not necessarily a good idea. Especially as no one was dancing. I got people on the dance floor all night and they had a great time. Yes, sometimes we are late for a meeting, but we give a discount because of this. I played for two other daughters weddings and this client was grateful that I would personally do her 3rd daughter's wedding.

  • The owner who had originally met with us, did all the communication, and said he would be the one at our wedding ended up sending a sick DJ (whom we had never met) so he could stay home to watch a football game. Half of the wedding party's names were pronounced incorrectly- after having had practiced them several times. Even the bride's name was mispronounced. The DJ also announced to the reception that he had a headache and wasn't feeling well. The DJ didn't read the crowd well and didn't play music that would have made it a party. After some of the guests complained about the borish music ( a couple of times) it livened up a bit. But it shouldn't be necessary to have to complain for things to liven up- it's a wedding reception! We had people on the dance floor ready to have fun- we just were missing the DJ who wanted to have fun. This DJ service is a bit more pricey than some others- which is fine- if they are good. We aren't even overly picky- we just wanted fun music played. We wis... Read more

  • DJ asked my guests to help tear down the head table! He played all of the songs that I specifically listed as "do not play." The owner of the company called my cell phone when I was about to walk down the aisle and asked what we wanted for our first dance song? I was about to scream! I specifically gave them a worksheet of step by step instructions for the night and they lost them. They then call me the day of my wedding to get the info. Would highly urge anyone to look elsewhere for a DJ.
