Dennis brings a truly professional manner in hins consultative skills, appearance, timeliness, preparedness, and execution.

Needless to say, we plan to use Dennis for future events and strongly recommend him to everyone seeking to add muscial presence to heir business and/or social event.

This letter is to recommend Mr. Dennis Simms of "Designated Dee-jay Ent" for any position which requires the ultimate in executive Dee-jay services.

Tha date for my daughter's wedding at the CLUBHOUSE AT ANAHEIM HILLS was quickly approaching. A full year of tedious planning went into this event. I went into a panic mode when our contracted Dee-jay cancelled due to an emergency. My older daughter quickly contacted Dennis. She had witnessed his performance first hand at a previous party and had urged me from the beginning stages of the planning to hire Dennis. From the moment he agreed to work with us, I could immediately see why my daughter had given such rave reviews on him.

Dennis demonstrated all the qualities of an experience DJ. His attributes include:

  • Extensive knowledge of his field
  • Informative
  • Adaptability to facility limitations
  • Charming personality
  • Intelligence
  • Team player
  • Excellent rapport with client, guests and venue personnel
  • Mr. Entertainment!

Throughout our event, many guests and staff applauded his work and asked for his business card.

Mr. Dennis "DJ" Simms is one of those rare individuals who can be counted upon to achieve resounding success. I highly recommend him. He is the total package!

Very truly yours,

U DA MAN!!! U R DA MAN!!! Can I put that in the letter? No problem with doing a letter for you. That is the least that we can do. You will be hearing from us again my brother. For sure, for sure. Your performance was priceless. My daughter warned me, but to see it was to believe it!

I wanted to thank you for making my daughters “Sweet 16” Birthday Party a HUGE hit. Playing four hours straight and keeping 90 sixteen-year-olds entertained is a testament to how you do it. Three days after the party, her friends were commenting about how much fun you made it and how good the music was for the entire night. Even the parents at the party had a great time watching you bring your energy. I would recommend you to anyone wanting to have a good time and looking to hire a true professional.

Hi Dennis,

Just wanted you to know that you were the star of the party. Everyone loved you and I thank you for an awesome job. One of my granddaughters wants you to do her 16th birthday party and the other one wants to have an 18th birthday party, just because she wants you to be the DJ!

We are working on our 50th anniversary party!! We will let you know the date so that we will be sure you are available. Our family is so happy that we found you and you are definitely our DJ of choice.

My son Jim loves his new name and Gary had a wonderful time exploring the Blues tracks with you.

My husband, Jim, says he had the best time in 20 years at this party. He survived and is looking forward to the next time.

Thanks again for helping make my party a success.

Have a wonderful day!!

~ Janet ~
p.s. Would you like me to do a separate letter?

Hey Dennis,

Thank you so much for the wonderful entertainment you provide for my mother's 70th birthday celebration. You had us grooving to the music while we enjoyed brunch. We laughed and were moved to (happy) tears during the picture presentation. It was so much fun watching mom's face during the Jeopardy to see how much everyone was so into it. Mom still talks about her party. You made sure that we had a keepsake of her special day with the DVD. You did a FANTASTIC job with the little time I gave you to put it together. I really appreciate everything you did to make her day extra special.

To Whom It Concern:

I wanted to use a DJ for my 40th birthday party, and after hearing about Dennis' experience with parties, I decided to use Designated Dee-jay Entertainment.

Now keep in mind that my party was held in Las Vegas, yet Dennis agreed to travel from California for my event bringing all of his audio/visual equipment with him, setting up the equipment, playing & breaking down the equipment after the party ended.

My attendees covered a range from high school teens through grandparents. However, Dennis played a variety of music which entertained every age group in attendance.

The one thing that truly stands out was the video tribute Dennis put together to showcase my last 40 years. Everybody there enjoyed the walk down memory lane, and of course, the teens really enjoyed the fashion statements from my earlier years.

Dennis was interactive, professional & pleasant to work with. Since my party, several of my friends who attended my party have asked for Dennis' contact information to book him for their events.

I highly recommend Designated Dee-jay Entertainment & plan to book this company for my future parties.

RE: Dennis Simms

It is an immense pleasure to recommend this industrious, multi-talented, creative and ingenious entrepreneur.

Dennis Simms is highly regarded in the business industry; he is very professional and has definitely contributed to numerous successful events.

His music, video and photography skills have been requested repeatedly for business festivities, weddings, birthday parties for all ages, proms, graduations, retirement parties, baby showers, picnics and other celebratory activities.

The music variations cover an expansive population and often include Spanish, French, Italian and most of the popular current American selections as well as popular oldies from years past if desired.

Over the years it has been a joyful experience to participate as an invitee or inviter in many of the above mentioned activities and I look forward to attending other celebratory festivities in the future.

Be prepared to enjoy a fun filled and memorable occasion because Dennis' music, video and photography skills are exceptional.

To Future Designated DeeJay Clients:

Dennis is truly a professional...he was consultative and gave me ideas for my graduation celebration, followed up as necessary. The success of a party is all about the music and Dennis made sure that happened. Not only did he ask for song requests a week before the party but was flexible enough to change it up to meet the needs of the guests. He was on time, kept the party going and was a lot of fun. I would definitely hire DJ Dennis again for my next event!

Dear Dennis,

We cannot thank you enough for the fantastic and incredible job you did for Janet's Retirement and 70th Birthday party. We received many compliments on what an exceptional job you did. Needless to say, Jim is still talking about it and says it was the greatest time he has at a party in a long time. He is still dancing!! Your entire system was a "WOW," and we appreciated the mixture of music you played, along with your ingenuity in keeping the party moving!! Thanks again for a great evening and for helping us create some astonishing memories.

We will get back to you with the date for our 50th Wedding Anniversary in April. We want to be sure that you will be available.

Thanks again for a magnificent evening, an awesome party, and for being so adaptable!

You are the BEST!!!

Designated DeeJay Testimonial

Dennis brings so much more to the game than you can even hope for!

I run our school's annual variety show which is one of our biggest fundraisers.

Every year I have had to find a new DJ/sound engineer.

This year Dennis stepped up to the plate and it's his own fault he was so good because he's coming back every year now.

Dennis had thought of everything way before I did. He solved technical difficulties with stealth and ease.

Being my new DJ I felt I'd have go through it slowly with to get him up to speed. Ha! What a joke. He was off and running within the first 5 minutes and I never had to look back.

It is SO comforting to know that your event is in such capable hands. And if that wasn't enough, Dennis brought such fun suggestions and life to the event. Things I never would have thought of.

Dennis is worth his weight in gold, someone who truly loves what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious!

To Whom It May Concern:

Dennis was a guest at my garden wedding in 2011. I had purchased some microphones and a small amp for the ceremony and speeches. However this equipment that I had purchased turned out to be not up to the task of handling an outside function and the majority of the guests could not hear much.

Dennis came up to me and offered his help. In the trunk of his car he had tons of equipment and in about half an hour had set up a powerhouse audio setup. A bunch of powerful speakers, cordless mikes, the works. The speeches as well as the songs that my sister and wife sang were loud and clear.

Dennis certainly saved THE day. I do not hesitate to recommend Dennis for any DJ / audio needs you may have on your special day.

Dennis Simms is a true DJ professional. He is my one stop entertainment concierge for music entertainment, lighting, and ambience. He single handedly made my 31st birthday bash one of the highlights of my life. My guests are still raving about how much fun they had. I recommend Dennis for any occasion. He is punctual, communicates well, and simply delivers results!

Re: Shining Lights Sound & MC Support


I just had to take a second to thank you for everything today. It was sincerely a pleasure working with you today, not only on point with sound, but such a great experience all around working with you. It took so much pressure off this year just knowing you had everything under control. Let me know if anyone asks you in the future (and you accept) to give your time at these events so that I can sign up and be there to lend my help.

Hi Dennis,

We can't thank you enough for all of your hard work, dedication and professionalism with our event. I am quite sure everyone had a great time, we were given many compliments that evening about how much fun the event was. I ran into a few moms this AM who reiterated the same thing!!

Your music was great and definitely kept the party going, I loved how you sprinkled in Hamilton, The Weekend, etc it was a great variety. I don't think any of us on that dance floor were really ready to leave, myself included!!! Thank you for keeping the pace of the event moving and keeping everyone informed with your announcements. You were amazing!

As you mentioned to me at the event, I think another speaker would have been beneficial at the back of the room (by the food buffet) to help with the audio, but we will be on it for next time! Also, I know the set-up time was a little tight, so I know that was not ideal...and didn't make things easy for you. Thank you for getting it done and working with us to make the best of that situation!

Overall I am thrilled at the response we have had so far and just wanted to thank you again. You are a total pro and I hope we get to work together on this event again next year!

With Gratitude,

~ Victoria M ~

To Whom It Concern:

We hired Designated DJ for our daughter's 14th birthday party and were so impressed with the experience. His communication was excellent, reaching out to us a couple of weeks before the party to inquire as to the type of music my daughter listened to; showed up with plenty of time to set up his equipment and when the 14-year old guests were shy about dancing, he did his best to motivate them and get them out on the dance floor.

DJ Dennis was great to deal with from start to finish and we couldn't have asked for more! We will definitely use him again and would recommend Designated DJ to our friends. Thank you so much!

~M & J Shaw~


Wanted to write you a quick letter to let you know how much we appreciate the job you did for us last Saturday at our party. Prior to the party my wife and I both spoke with you over the phone to go over the details of what we were looking for regarding a DJ. You then came to our house and took pictures, measured and went over the type of music we wanted played. You then sent us a map of our living room and how all your equipment would be set-up. You took meticulous care of every little detail, I only wish that our other vendors we used for our party had the same high attention to detail.

I can't imagine using a different DJ for our future party's.

Thanks again!
Jim & Celina Elizarraz
