    Bill did an awesome job keeping the night on track and the dance floor going. Very professional and fun. We kind of didn't know what we were supposed to be doing next and changing our minds on things during the night. Bill was very flexible and help us out and made everything flow perfectly.

    We highly recommend Bill's service! Thanks Bill!

    Bill was a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting to all the way to the day of wedding, he was accommodating. The client tools on his website was very easy to use too. I definitely recommend Bill for your wedding or any other occasion!

    Bill Cooke did an amazing job in setting the tone for our magical Princess Ball in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
    He was punctual, flexible and very engaging. He created an atmosphere that was conducive to little guests. We would highly recommend his services to family and friends and he has already requested to assist us again next year.

    Friendly, Professional, Talented & Reliable DJ Service!

    I can't say enough good things about Bill and his DJ service for my wedding! From the very beginning Bill was always prompt with his responses, approachable, professional and accommodating. I was willing to book his services just based on our positive email communication, however Bill recommended that we meet in person first, just to make sure that I felt comfortable with his services and that it was a good fit. I really felt this showed Bill's professionalism and confidence in his services which was very comforting and reassuring to me as I selected him to be our DJ. I felt he was going to be great and reliable from day one. Bill regularly checked in with us in the months, weeks and days leading up to the wedding day and he was always making sure he knew every detail, schedule change or request. He also went above and beyond by contacting my MC, Videographer, and Wedding Coordinator before the wedding to make sure they were all on the same page and were prepared so that the day would go smoothly. The music Bill played was great and it got everyone excited and up and dancing! He had a great ability to feel how the room was responding to certain songs and he kept up the momentum. Beyond that, in my sister's speech she mentioned that I liked Michael Jackson and Bill played some special Michael Jackson songs for me throughout the evening, beyond what I had requested. Bill was absolutely great and all my wedding guests commented on how great the music was! I would recommend Bill to everyone I know! Amazing DJ Service! A dream for your wedding day!

    Thanks Sarah. I had an absolute blast performing at the wedding. Everyone was so friendly and the atmosphere was amazing! Was wonderful to be a part of your special day!

    Every step from the planning process up to and including the actual wedding, Bill was very professional, engaging, and responsive. I had a very specific vision of the music I wanted at my wedding and Bill nailed it. His music planning web tool is very easy to use and actually helped us remember songs that we love but had forgotten about. I would highly recommend the services of Bill for your wedding or any other event that requires an excellent DJ.

    This definitely was the best DJ I could ask for. The price was amazing, he was flexible, personable and super friendly. He took requests and was interactive. He knew what to do because I sure didn't!

    Bill DJ'd our Arabic and English style wedding without a hitch. He was always in touch when we needed to ask him questions. He was very good at working with our hall to provide the best sound quality.

    He went beyond our expectations by giving us fun games for our guests and he quickly learned our unique taste in music. He had a great mix of cultural songs and our favourite English songs.

    His easy-to--use online planner also allowed our wedding to be perfectly planned by the minute.

    We highly recommend Bill as a DJ and entertainer!!
