  • Willis was our star vendor! I cared more about music than any other details at our wedding and he absolutely nailed it. His method and platform for planning music ahead of your big day was perfect and allowed me to get as specific as I wanted. Then, on wedding day, he executed all of the elements we wanted perfectly. I was worried about having a DJ that talked too much (you know the ones...) but Willis said everything he needed to to keep the party going without trying to take the spotlight. I would hire him again for any event! (Photos by MKM Photography)

  • Willis made our wedding party better than I could have ever expected. From the minute we contacted him to DJ our party, he was responsive, active in working to make our wedding party as personal as possible, and was interested in every detail of our night. He was prompt, engaged, and played anything we requested. We danced with our guests until the last minute of our party. I would recommend Willis J to anyone looking for a great DJ for a wedding or any other party. He's the best!

  • Willis is the greatest DJ (and probably one of the best people) I've ever met. We can't stop talking about how great our experience with him at our wedding was! He did an incredible job of balancing songs we requested with the crazy demands our guests were making at his table, while also keeping everyone on their feet for hours! The music was so good the bartender even made an appearance on the dance floor. He made everything so personal, so much so that many of my friends thought we had known him for years. He so was so kind and funny in every interaction we had. Hire Willis!

  • Hard to summarize such a legend of a person and DJ in one review! Willis is without a doubt your guy if you’re looking for a fun wedding! His years of experience really shine with being able to read the crowd and know what music to play. He instantly made me and my husband feel like family and even our craziest requests he always figured out telling us it was an easy fix and not to worry. He is a genuine person, incredible DJ, and very reasonably priced and well worth every cent. We cannot say enough great things about Willis!

  • We were looking for a DJ and Willis was the first one that I had a phone conversation with. Immediately I knew I wanted to hire him. From the very beginning he was fun to work with and listened to what we wanted. He met with us once about a month out from the wedding and it was great to get to meet him in person. He also checked in with us two more times as we got closer to the wedding and walked through all of the details of the reception with me. I really appreciated that! The online planner was easy to use and very helpful as well. On the night of the wedding, everyone loved the music and it was a wonderful night! Definitely go with DJ Willis if you are looking for someone to help make your event great and create the vibe you are looking for.

    I LOVED DJing your wedding! From the time we all had breakfast together at the almighty Cracker Barrel till the end of the night of the reception, you two have been amazing to work with. What a great way to bring in 2020! Thank you so much!

  • Oh my goodness, I can't say enough good thing about Wills. There's a good reason he has such great reviews - he was fantastic! From our very first phone call I knew he was the right person for us. He was super friendly but very professional, never over the top but always fun, and the best part is that he really seemed to "get me" and understand my music tastes. I was excited to have him at the wedding because he instantly felt like a friend, and one that I know had my back. And the one thing guest consistently said after the wedding was "Your DJ was the BEST!". Yep, he sure is!

  • Willis was amazing! He put us at ease with his confidence in his talent and punctuality. Emails were responded to very quickly, regardless of the time of day they were sent. He checked in periodically to keep us up to date on his timeline and what he needed from us. He always made sure to see how we were feeling and that we didn't have any questions. We didn't have very much must play songs and mostly let him do his thing. The wedding was awesome. The dance floor was packed the whole night! I don't think we sat... except for toasts. There was a small hiccup with one of the songs, but he covered it so seamlessly that everyone thought it was planned. He lived up to his promise of "Don't worry about it! I got this!" If you want a packed dance floor and a personable, upbeat, happy DJ, Willis is your guy!

  • Willis was an invaluable asset to our wedding! He was extremely easy to work with and talk to. My wife and I love seeing people who are passionate about their work, and to say Willis is passionate is a vast understatement. He knows about every genre of music. He knows what songs sound good together, and is very good at reading the room and playing for the moment. Multiple people after our wedding came up to us and told us how awesome he was, and all we could say was "we know." My parents loved Willis, my groomsmen loved Willis, my mother in law loved Willis. He was very good about listening to us and being open to any new songs or ideas we had. Our dance floor was never empty, but the music wasn't so overwhelming that people felt like they couldn't talk to one another. My wife and I truly believe the biggest mistake you can make as far as hiring a DJ for your wedding is not hiring Willis. You will not find a better one in the Triangle!

    How much more awesome can you be Patrick?! Thank you repeatedly for this review. To be honest, your crew of family and friends were so entertaining, it made it easy to join in on the fun and keep the great vibes going!

  • We were in a pinch 3 weeks before our wedding when our dj and photobooth went m.i.a. on us. Willis was recommended to me by another vendor and he saved our wedding from being dj-less! He and Chance, one of his djs met us for drinks to go over what we wanted and it was no problem! Chance killed it on our wedding day and kept everyone dancing all night! Their process is all online so it made it super easy to pick songs ahead of time you wanted played and when and the songs you didn't want. They were so funny and easy going that it took all the stress out of scrambling to find a new dj! Willis and his team will not disappoint!

  • Working with Willis J Entertainment was a phenomenal experience from start to finish. He made our wedding so fun, and by the end almost every guest was on the dance floor. I could not recommend him more.

  • Our #1 reception priority was a full dance floor, but we were worried that our extremely diverse guest list would make it hard to keep everyone happy. My in-laws requested half Indian music, but couldn't give any specific song suggestions and we were at a loss. My family was coming from urban Chicagoland and rural Tennessee and also had differing expectations. Willis told us not to worry, and he somehow managed to make a combination of Indian music, hip-hop, r&b, pop, and even some danceable rock that kept everyone from the littlest kids to the aging uncles on the dance floor. We gave him mostly free rein on all the music selections, with the most minimal of direction ("Can you play songs that are fun but not danceable for the cocktail hour? Like The Lumineers?") and he figured out what we meant and nailed it every time. He even showed my nephews how his equipment worked and let them play a song. They were thrilled. We got compliments from both sides of the families on our DJ and I def... Read more

    This review was so DOPE and so nice! You and Kush's wedding was so much fun that us vendors still talk about how much we loved it to this day! Thank you both so much for this. :-)

  • DJ Willis ROCKS! Once you meet him you will know that he knows how to run a party! He’s funny, outgoing, and all the things you want your DJ to be, while at the same time being professional and supportive. He doesn’t try to steal the show like I’ve seen some crazy DJs do, but he says just enough at just the right times to keep the crowd happy, dancing and laughing! He is a professional DJ that can play any part to any song at any time you want! He made my crazy dream of a complicated bridal party entrance run like it had been rehearsed for months! He keeps in touch with you through the time before you wedding, and has a great online system where you can put your requests, your “do not plays”(my fav!) and timeline! Go with DJ Willis and you will not be disappointed!

    Thank you so much for this Sarah! You, Patrick and the whole fam were so much fun to DJ for. Now every time I hear E-40, you two will forever pop up in my mind haha! :-)

  • DJ Willis did a phenomenal job at our reception. The music was absolutely perfect. He did a wonderful job involving everybody on our special day. He is quick to reply, reach out, and meet with you. His website is amazing and easy to use. We hardly put any music on ours, yet he still make for an unforgettable night. We will definitely be having him for any of our future events.

  • My wedding was in the afternoon, which had me worried it wouldn't have a party, dancing atmosphere. From our first meeting with DJ Willis all of that worry went away. He totally nailed our vibe, the dance floor wasn't empty for a minute! He did an amazing job as MC, played all of our favorite songs, and everybody was raving about the music. I would highly recommend Willis to anyone!
