  • To put this simply, James was absolutely amazing and well worth the cost to book him for our wedding. Do you need someone flexible? James. Do you need someone who can entertain your guests with humor, games, kickass playlists, and have that "Hollywood" smile? James. Do you want someone who will go above and beyond to help create an atmosphere that exudes fun? James. I have no doubt that there are great DJ's across KC with varying costs for booking, but if I held another event that needed a DJ I would book James without hesitation.

  • At first we planned to have a friend be our DJ for the wedding. Well that fell through and we decided to find a professional who could ensure our guests were well cared for. We needed not just a DJ but a Master of Ceremonies and James delivered beyond our expectations! James was a pleasure to work with. At our pre-meeting I couldn't believe how we'd say something vague like "I kind of want some 'happy' music" and then he could turn that into specific song suggestions! That helped a ton. Also, on the day of the wedding he wasn't just there to play music - he kept us on schedule, kept everyone engaged and even pulled off a game we requested and our guests loved it! He did all this professionally and enthusiastically. Fantastic energy and I'd definitely recommend him to others.

  • James absolutely KILLED it this past weekend at my wedding! He is so organized, knows exactly the right flow of things, and got the dance party going the entire night. If you want someone who you can rely on, James is your guy! He even asked our opinion on things throughout the night which I really appreciated. thanks for being SO awesome!

  • James was INCREDIBLE! From the very first meeting to the day of the event. He was very attentive to everything we wanted. Our first time meeting him we instantly felt at ease, like he had everything under control and would help our wedding be a fun success. It was very important to us that the reception was filled with music we loved, moved along at a good pace, and had an easy going fun vibe. James absolutely helped to create this at our wedding. He was able to “guide the show” so to speak, without being overly “showy” like I have experience at other weddings. Everyone commented on how wonderful he was, how great the music was, and how he was probably one of the best DJ’s they had seen at a wedding. He really matched the vibe of my Husband and I, our wedding vision, and then delivered. What I appreciated most about him was that he was so attentive to details, and so incredibly respectful. Both of my parents had passed away and I wanted to do dances to honor each of them.... Read more

  • James is seriously wonderful! He kept our party going and was so accommodating to all of our needs including going back and forth between two huge barns! He MCd the whole time and kept us and our guests informed and on schedule. He even came out to the limo to check on me right before the ceremony started. On top of being so amazing he is very affordable! I don’t have one negative thing to say about him and we are so happy we found him!

    Thank you for mentioning specific things you liked, like coming out to the limo. I am especially humbled by your comment about not having one negative thing to say. And of course I love being called amazing. Haha. Many blessings on you both and thanks again.

  • James was absolutely amazing to work with. From the first meeting when we met he was on top of all wedding details from songs, to how to pronounce us as a married couple, to what he should wear to not clash with the wedding party. He was fun to work with, very outgoing and made our wedding day run smoothly. Any time I had a question or song change, James responded to my email within an hour of it being sent. The day of the wedding, James came up with our timeline and made sure everything was on time and that the other vendors were doing what they needed to at the correct times. We did not have a wedding planner so having James guide the night and other vendors was extremely helpful. At the end of the night, our wedding venue informed us that James was the best DJ they had had in a very long time. He played a wide variety of music and even took song suggestions. We had guests of all ages dancing the night away. I have gone to many weddings where guests quit dancing around 30/45 minutes ... Read more

    Thanks Kelsey. You know how much you both mean to me. Always a blessing to DJ for loved ones and to know they felt taken care of. This was one of my all time favorite weddings. It didn't hurt that we got to dance outdoors in beautiful Telluride, CO all night long!

    Thanks Cindy! You’re a true planner. One of the few I’ve worked with that handles all the details well and respects the DJ also. Thank you! I had a blast!

  • James was AWESOME to work with!! We were really worried about not having a wedding planner or coordinator, so we really needed guidance when we were planning out the timeline for the night. James spent hours on the phone with us planning for every single detail. We told him the types of music our crowd would enjoy and he kept people on the floor all night. We have a very specific tradition (the Wedding March) and not only did he execute it perfectly, but he got videos of the event! If you need someone to act as an MC to direct your guests, James is your guy. All in all, if you are picky about your DJ, go with Raise the Barr!!

    responded with the following comments.

    I really value when my clients mention specific things they appreciated. It really helps new clients get a feel for how I work. I am especially thankful you pointed out how I can step in as a coordinator. And of course I love when people add that I kept the guests dancing "all night". Thanks again and many blessings on you both.
