  • Adolphus did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding! He was in contact with us and our planner leading up to the wedding to make sure we had sent along all details related to music. He had great recommendations when we were unsure of songs for entrance music, bouquet toss, etc. On the wedding day, he nailed everything! He helped with ensuring our officiant was mic'd and had a separate mic for our readers. We missed the cocktail hour but heard great things from guest about the music. Once the dancing started at the reception, he played the perfect music that made it feel more like a dance party than a wedding. He hit every song we wanted and ran any "non-normal" song requests past us to make sure he didn't play music we didn't want. Our guest are still talking about how much fun the wedding was and how the music was perfect. I strongly recommend Adolphus to anyone that's getting married and is looking for a DJ. He made our night absolutely amazing! Thanks so much Adolphus! ... Read more

  • The Masters of the Ceremony was recommended to me by my wedding planner Kerri with Blush Events, and I cannot express enough how glad I am that I chose to go with them!! I used this company for my ceremony music as well as reception music for introductions and to play while the band we hired was on break. Honestly, my guests loved the DJ so much I think he played much longer then the band did! Adolphus (DJ) was fun, professional, accommodating and beyond helpful with all of my song choices. He kept the crowd happy and dancing though out my reception. My husband and I didn't hire a videographer for our wedding, which is why I was speechless when Adolphus surprised me after my wedding with two custom videos he made of my reception! I would 100% recommend that any bride or persons looking for a DJ for an event choose The Masters of the Ceremony! They were better then any other DJ I have experienced of the years at other events and their customer service is unbeatable!!

  • I had my March 2017 wedding in Durham, NC. I hired Adolphus because my cousin went to a wedding in Richmond where he was the DJ and she said people couldn’t wait to get on the dance floor. She was not lying. Adolphus had my guests on the dance floor all night long. Nobody wanted to leave because the music was so good. A DJ is such an important part of the reception and Adolphus did not disappoint. In addition, he was so easy to work with throughout the planning process, always responsive, always willing to customize, and just an overall nice person.

    Thank you! It was truly a pleasure working with you and your wonderful family! Lot of luck in the future!

  • Masters of Ceremony was amazing. We just got married yesterday but felt like we had to write this review immediately to show Masters of Ceremony the love that we felt last night. The most frequent compliment we received from our guests was how great the music was. Every song was a great song and was based on a few suggested songs from us. Adolphus is a great DJ who really understood what we wanted in terms of the vibe and music. Our guests were constantly dancing all night. Even the way he dealt with some of our more crazy guests was above and beyond what we would have expected. He was constantly professional. Pricing was very reasonable. Honestly, he is worth much more than his asking price. He is a true artist. The transitions between songs were perfect and the flow of music was amazing. There is nothing more we could have wanted from a DJ.

    Thanks guys!! I had a ball this weekend. Best of luck to you two!

  • As we all know planning a wedding can be costly and a bit of a headache. You want everything to be perfect from the begining to the end. I had my ceremony all in tact but what about my reception? I wanted my reception to be like a giant "PARTY"!! I had an idea of what type of songs I wanted played and what type of DJ I needed and how much I wanted to spend. I really thought it was going to be difficult to find all that in one.?? Well I was wrong!! My friend told me about a DJ named Danja Mowf. She said anything you want he can do and then some. Well I'm here to tell you it was the best money I have ever spent?? Adolphus Maples also known as DJ "DANJA MOWF" hosted our wedding reception on 12/10/2016. Our vision of everybody kick off your shoes and have a GOOD time came to life. Adolphus was very prompt and professional and resonable. He was so nice to us all and I must say easy on the eyes?? lol!! I had to keep my aunts focused lol!! He played every type of music and had eve... Read more

  • We booked The Masters of Ceremony for our wedding in Nov. 2016 and Adolphus was the BEST DJ EVER! He was able to make our reception a hit that our guests are still talking about it to this day! I would totally recommend him and The Masters of Ceremony!

  • Short story- Hire Masters of The Ceremony! Adolphus and team are absolutely outstanding at their craft and you(and your guests) can tell with how they create an amazing atmosphere! They meet with you and get to know your personalities so they can make the day custom to who you are as a couple and provide a music selection that is second to none. Hiring Adolphus is one of best decisions you can make of you want to give your guests the best night!

  • We got married on October 22nd of last year and I cannot express enough what an amazing day it was all around. The Master of Ceremonies beyond words! He was sincere and professional yet appropriately funny when those little unexpected things come up during the ceremony itself. Besides being extremely professional, he was on top of everything. Kept the timeline for the evening to a perfect T ensuring the night went smoothly and without a hitch. He has an amazing voice and energy that just kept the night going. The dance floor was NEVER empty, not for one song and the venue basically had to kick us out as none of my guests (nor my new husband and I) wanted to leave. As they say, the food and music (ok, sometimes the bar as well) makes or breaks a wedding. Adolphus aka "Danja" knocked it out of the park!. Again, I still am receiving comments about how "off the chain the wedding was and that our DJ was the best they have seen". Even weeks after our wedding, I have been in touch with ... Read more

  • Working with Adolphus and Masters of the Ceremony for our wedding reception was by far one of the best decisions we made in planning our Maymont, Richmond, VA Wedding! From the start, Adolphus was professional and very responsive. Our biggest criteria for finding a DJ was having someone with a great personality, who could hang with our crowd and keep the party going. From the moment we met Adolphus, we knew he was the one! We are beyond happy with the music at the reception and had many of our guests come up to us and say it was the best wedding DJ they had ever experienced. You can't go wrong with booking this team for your special day!!

    I would type here that Cait & Jake were my favorite couple ever... but someone else may get offended! Thanks guys!

  • We knew from the day we met him that Adolphus was the one to MC our wedding and reception. I can't express how grateful we were to have him. We didn't provide much of a list and I practically piece mailed things to him as they came up (being the frantic bride I was) yet he was flexible and in the end knew exactly what we were going for and set the party on FIRE! Even my grams couldn't stop moving! Amazing, amazing, AMAZING! Thank you for helping to make our special day the biggest party of our lives! CHEEHOOO!!!

  • I would recommend Masters of Ceremonies to ANYBODY. Dj Danja Mowf was our MC/DJ at our 9/15/99 wedding... THAT'S HOW LONG HE'S BEEN ROCKING! I cannot express enough what an amazing day it was all around. He was sincere and professional yet appropriately funny when those little unexpected things come up during the ceremony itself. Besides being extremely professional, he was on top of everything. Kept the timeline for the evening to a perfect T ensuring the night went smoothly and without a hitch.

The dance floor was NEVER empty, not for one song and the venue basically had to kick us out as none of my guests (nor my husband and I) wanted to leave. As they say, the food and music (ok, sometimes the bar as well) makes or breaks a wedding. Danja knocked it out of the park!. Again, I still hear about how "off the chain" the wedding was and that was over 15 years ago! Book THE MASTERS! You can't go wrong.

  • I am the owner of A TOUCH OF CLASS EVENT HALL and I have had the pleasure to witness this DJ several times at many wedding events.  His attention to details goes above and beyond even down to his apparel.  I noticed that his wardrobe colors always match the wedding party.  He has always been very professional in appearance and when working with the customer.  His choice of music flows nicely with the audience and everyone has a great time dancing and enjoying the sounds.   I would recommend Danja to anyone who's looking for a professional DJ.

  • Post-wedding, our guests could not stop raving about two things: the venue, and the MUSIC! With very little direction (we sent off a list of roughly ten songs we wanted to hear), Adolphus was able to read the crowd and set the exact tone we envisioned. He knows his craft very well, and I would highly recommend him to anyone! Hands down, I would book him again in a heartbeat. He kept the party going, kept the dance floor populated, and had everyone from teen to grandparents entertained. I owe the success of my wedding to my parents, my planner, and my DJ!!

  • The Masters of Ceremony are AMAZING! I got married a couple of weeks ago, and used them for both my wedding and ceremony music. I have nothing but good things to say about this vendor. From first contact, Adolphus was very warm, communicative and professional. He has extremely reasonable rates, and quite frankly, the value far exceeds the cost. I was a ( very) disorganized bride, but he worked around the craziness to make my day a dream come true. EVERYONE keeps complimenting on how great the DJ was and how it was one of the most fun weddings they've been to. And trust me, we needed all the help we could get because the barn we were married in was pretty hot. I was super worried that people wouldn't dance because of the heat, but Masters of Ceremony just kept the beats coming and people couldn't help but get on their feet and DANCE like crazy!! He consistently checked in with me or the wedding planner just to make sure we liked the music and the "vibe" of the reception music, ... Read more

  • We liked that Adolphus wore a suit and looked good. He used the bride's suggested music and expertly used complimentary music to get and keep our party rocking. Also the selection of the many requests was done with courtesy and mixed well. Responded to requests for lower volume and directed speakers as appropriate for best crowd interaction. Adolphus was obviously technically and musically very knowledgeable and talented. Best of all when Dad wanted to sing he booted up a karaoke version of the song and even put it on the best "style" it was available in. Of course Dad knocked it out of the park. Great Time! Thanks so much!!
