  • We are so incredibly thankful for Adolphus! Our wedding was successful thanks to him and his understanding for music! We wanted to make sure we hired someone who would play a variety of Latin, Hip Hop, Pop and Peruvian folk music. During our meetings, we explained how important this was to us and our families, and he absolutely nailed it the day of the wedding! He was really accomidating to our needs and had great song recommendations that helped get the crowd get pumped! I 100% recommend going with the Masters of the Ceremony for your wedding! You won’t be disappointed! Also, get their photobooth! My husband and I were looking around for an affordable, yet great quality photobooth vendor - we’re so glad we went with them! All of our guests raved about how great the photobooth assistant was and how helpful she was in making sure the pictures came out great! Thank you again, Adolphus and team. You guys are the best!

  • We used the Masters of Ceremony for dj services and Adolphus was our dj. The service we received was amazing from start to finish. It was because of Adolphus' professionalism that we also chose to hire his photobooth company (MMG photobooth). Each interaction that we had was professional and friendly so I had no doubt that he was going to make our wedding memorable. Like a typical bride I was making requests and changes just days before the wedding and his flexibility was remarkable. I know for a fact that if we need to hire a dj or rent a photobooth again I will definitely be going back to the Masters of Ceremony.

  • To say this is the best Wedding DJ service is an understatement. Adolphus or, DJ Danja Mowf, the owner, came to our home and met with us. We were so impressed with his ideas and company mission and we knew it was a perfect match. He had so much energy and spontaneity we were instantly excited to see him in action. He didn't fail to impress us. We met about a week before the wedding and finalized all the details. We answered questions and Adolphus really got to know us. The day of the wedding was more than we could have imagined. He was the best MC/DJ I have ever personally seen! The way he engaged our guests was far beyond our expectations. He truly has an amazing talent and I can't thank him enough for making our day the best! If you are considering The Masters of Ceremonies, you will not be let down!

  • Adolphus was the best DJ! We have been to so many weddings in the last two years and knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We listen to a wide range of music and wanted to incorporate so 90s hip hop, rap and popular pop songs plus oldies on our wedding day. What was most important is that we wanted to have a big dance party and with Adolphus we definitely had that. There was not one song that we didn't enjoy dancing to and his flow of music was perfect. After the wedding we had our bridal party and tons of guests comment on not the food, flowers or the dress but how great the DJ was at reading the crowd and keeping the party going. After the details we put into it our guests remembered the dance party. He was worth every cent and kept our day smooth and wild. I hope you're still DJing in 30 years so we can host our wedding anniversary!

  • We had a multicultural wedding and I was concerned about making sure all of the different cultures of family and friends would be covered. The masters of the ceremony came highly rated... and we quickly found out why! The response times to our messages was always quick, and the help with music and ensuring that my bride felt totally at ease before the wedding was all covered. Adolphus stayed in complete contact and Juan was an awesome Dj the night of. We even booked his wife for the photo booth which was an epic experience as well! The week of the wedding we added on up lights and monogram which were both perfect. We had a mixed crowd but they kept everyone on the floor partying all night. It was everything that we envisioned and more, thank you Masters of the Ceremony!

  • When we were looking for a DJ, I specifically told my husband that all I wanted was to dance. When I came across Adolphus, I began to realize that he would make that dream come true. He is such a kind individual and was more than accommodating. He checked in with us several times throughout the year leading up to our wedding. He also spent over an hour the week of our wedding going through every detail and name he would be introducing through the ceremony/reception. I have spoken to many of our wedding guests since our wedding in October and they all collectively have said, "Best Wedding Ever." I think Adolphus and his flexibility, energy, and ability to read the crowd had a major effect on our guests experience. I cannot express how much we enjoyed having him DJ our wedding and are already thinking of excuses to have him DJ another event.

  • Do yourself a favor and just hire the man. I interviewed 3 DJs and within 5 min of talking to him i said put me on the books! He is legit, entertaining, experienced, energetic. I was supposed to have line dancing taught at my cocktail hour, but since it didn’t happen, Adolphus got out on the dance floor and led the Cupid Shuffle and the Wobble! He had lapel mircrophones and audio recording equipment for my ceremony. He has other packages for lighting and photo booths; a real techie guy with all the good equipment that he knows how to use well. Also, he lets you text him. I found that form of communication to be helpful as we got closer to our date. He was so professional. I had a lot of trust in him which put my mind at ease. I didnt worry about that part of my wedding because i knew he had it covered. So again, i say it will be the best money you spend. Totally worth it!

  • Words can not express how happy we are that we chose Adolphus, Aka, DJ Danja Mowf as our Wedding DJ. Our wedding theme was the Caribbean and we wanted to showcase my Jamaican culture as well as my husband's Latin culture and he did an excellent job of mixing the two cultures while seamlessly taking our guests on a Caribbean adventure. From Salsa, to Merengue, to Reggae to Calypso, etc. From beginning to end he was responsive and attentive to our needs and offered suggestions along the way. We got married three months ago and our guests are still talking about what a wonderful job Adolphus did with keeping everyone on the dancefloor all night long. Thank you again for a being apart of our special day. Melanie and Alvaro Munoz

  • Out of all of the vendors we picked for our wedding, The Masters of the Ceremony were probably one of the best. Music is such a big part of your wedding and having someone who genuinely cares about providing a great experience for you on such a monumental day is so rare and special. Danja, provides that and more. Our music was on point for both the ceremony and the reception. We had so many guests, including my mother (yes, my mother!), comment on how great the music was and how it kept everyone on the dance floor all night. People really didn't want to leave. In addition to providing a great sound track for the evening, Danja also was our MC and having one person manage both roles was extremely helpful. Overall, we truly enjoyed having The Masters of the Ceremony for our wedding! From the planning stage to execution to follow-up, everything was PERFECT!

    Hey Shannon! Thanks so much! I’ve already told you that your wedding was “how it should be done” and that you designed it was amazing! Best of LOVE to you both! Make it BASS forever!

  • I recently got married on August 26,2017 and I couldn't ask for a better Dj. MR. Adolphus was very helpful in planning out our music and knowing when it is the proper time to play certain songs. The Dj was amazing at working the crowd and keeping people constantly on the dance floor from beginning to end, Mr. Adolphus provided A+ service from beginning to end. My number one reason for choosing Mr. Adolphus is because he took his time to explain the different types of Dj thats out there and the type of services he provides. I would truly recommend him to all my friends and would definitely use him again for any future special events.- K. ATKINSON

    Hey! Thanks Karim for taking time out to review us. It was a pleasure selecting your African playlist and servicing your photo booth as well. Your whole ceremony was a cultural experience we won’t forget!

  • I referred Mr. Maples to my bride and what can I say about Mr. Maples; nothing short of amazing! He was very prompt, courteous and his appearance was very professional . He did the wedding ceremony in addition to providing the reception music. He cued the music in a timely fashion always an extraordinarily important component of the wedding ceremony. In addition to the questionnaire provided on his website, Mr. Maples was quickly able to get a feel of the guests music preference and had them on the dance floor enjoying themselves! If you are need a wedding DJ a highly recommend The Masters of the Ceremony!

  • If you want the best DJ and nothing less, go with TheMastersofCeremony. Hands down, they are the definition of professional, fun, and entertaining. The customer service is top notch and you will not be disappointed in the overall delivery of your product. My wife and I got married 15 July 2017, and our guests are still raving about the music and how great of a time they had. Our DJ, Aldolphus, was a true master of ceremony and you will not be be disappointed with his command of the dance floor!

    Thank you Kevin for the awesome review! Your family was wonderful and I enjoyed learning more about the Latin wedding culture!

  • DJ Adolphus elevated all phases of my daughter's wedding and reception. We had 170+ people in attendance and most of our family raved about the DJ. Several points resonated for us. First, his attire and setup blended well into the elegance of the event. Then, the background music during the cocktail hour and dinner created a relaxing and fun ambiance. Very important, because there were so many people that we had not seen in a while. We wanted to enjoy our family, laugh, and have great conversation, and we just appreciated the oft heard refrain, "oh, I love that song." I also appreciated the fact that he understood phases. Start with some line dances to get individual's out of their chairs, some R&B / top 40 hits to allow the mature couples to dance, followed by "active" music for all of the more recent college graduates to bounce around to. All of which, by the way, appropriate to the reality that there were both grandparents and grandchildren in the room. Clearly, he was focu... Read more

    Wow Mr. Williams! This has to be the best review I've ever recieved to date. #mistyeyed. I think there is always the point that I come to do a good job first and foremost. Secondly I'm always aware that we have been entrusted to handle one of the most memorable events in someone's life. It's humbling to hear that someone recognizes and appreciates the subtle nuances, just as one might appreciate and recognize the subtle hints of a chef's ingredients in a signature dish! It was a pleasure to "prepare and serve" your entertainment that evening sir and my gratitude extends to your wonderful family. May God continue to bless you all! - Adolphus

  • These guys are awesome. We wanted to book Adolphus but he was booked. Juan came through and made our night. They both met with my wife and myself. They stayed in contact with us learning the music we like and learning the flow of events for the day of our wedding. At the reception Juan was an awesome host. When it was party time he kept the party moving and dance floor packed. He noticed the family in a huddle and played Prince Purple Rain at the perfect moment. The song is now a part of our family!!! Of course I would recommend Juan and The Masters Of The Ceremony for your event!!!!
