    Great DJ that knows how to read a crowd

    Terry and Michelle were responsive, professional and quick to answer my many questions. Terry knows music and even though we didn’t provide too much info on what we wanted played (although we had a big list of “do not play” songs!), Terry was good at making suggestions and keeping the flow of the night going well. He read our crowd very well and kept people dancing all night long. A great choice for your wedding DJ!

    AMAZING!! We had Terry Holdershaw as our DJ for the night and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. He played all the right music to suit everyone's tastes. Super friendly and very easy going - I basically planned our night based on his suggestions and everything went perfectly. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a DJ for an event!

    I have known Terry for a while and knew he has always been professional in his work so it was easy to hire him. On the wedding day he was there early and got everything set up with little to no help from the rest of the people rushing around trying to make sure everything looked great. He played most of the songs requested and was a great judge as to what music got the guests on the dance floor.
