"James...what can I say....THANK YOU a million times over!!!!
I had many good feedback and nice compliments about you. I'm thankful I found you. Ron could not believe how I found you and he couldn't have been more impressed with you. Sometimes he gets a bit skeptical about people advertising on the internet...he wasn't quite sure how you were going to "perform"...but he was definitely PLEASED! I wish we had more parties planned so we can have you again. I will definitely recommend you to anyone Iknow that will need a DJ. When When my daughter gets married...guess who I'll be calling on?????"

WOW! I really lucked out with finding James of Ideal Media DJHD! What a passionate, driven individual! I originally found him through the web when I searched for DJs that were familiar with Kpop which was an important part of our music selections. From our discussions, I knew he was the right DJ for our event. He also stated he did lighting and decor which I decided to utilize. I even agreed to be his guinea pig for pipe and draping. All of his prices were completely reasonable and competitive and also did not include extra fees such as delivery. I felt like I was talking to someone who really cared about my wedding as oppose to some company trying to nickle and dime me. It was also SO convenient to plan with him about all three services (DJ, lighting, and pipe and drape) instead of going through three different vendors. Also, because I booked all of these services through him, he gave me a small discount on the final price which I deeply appreciated. I couldn't be happier with his services. The lighting, pipe and drape looked absolutely amazing (you should see the pictures, ask him!) and it was so fulfilling to see my visions come to life, especially since I plan on going into the wedding planning industry. His DJ skills also blew me away. He mixed songs into the next song seamlessly and is also a MASTER at reading the crows. He would loop songs and choruses that everyone was dancing to. At my wedding, people were doing the dougie for a really long time and he just let it play/loop until everyone had their chance to shine in the circle that was formed on the dance floor. He knew when to slow it down and speed it back up and was very familiar with all of the songs I had on my list. AMAZING! I will always seek him out when my friends/clients are planning their weddings. Make sure you ask him if he does anything before you have to find another vendor and save yourself the hassle. I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Awesome DJ!!!

DJ HD is a totally wonderful DJ. I can't say enough great things about him. He was very responsive to me and our group of worldwide attendees. He had all song selections ready to go at our event and he played everything we wanted. Our attendees were from age 6-20 something. He knew which songs were "hot" which kept everyone on the dance floor from the moment our event started to having them beg for "just one more song" when our event was over!!!!

DJ HD was extremely prompt at our site visit and event. His play list is incredible. DJ HD is also a super nice guy!!! I would highly recommend him and wish he could be at our next event which will be in Florida!!!!

Brown's Anniversary Party

We had our 25th anniversary party on May 12, 2012. We hired DJ HD for the event. DJ HD did a wonderful job. He knew exactly what to say to get the crowd going. The program we discussed worked well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Soul Train line. Everyone enjoyed the music. Some guests enjoyed DJ HD's style so much that they asked who he was and how to contact him for events they may schedule in the future. Thank you DJ HD for a great time.

Thanks again Danielle for choosing me as your Karaoke DJ for your husbands surprise party! I had an awesome time with everyone and you guys really know how to party! I'm glad that your guests participated and helped make it into a great success. That was a fun night!

Fabulous Sweet 13

I was thoroughly pleased with every aspect working with James. He was quick to respond, return messages and provide insightful feedback to our needs -- even dealing with my numerous calls and texts. His ability to work within our budget was also a huge plus++!

The day of the event, I was pleased with James timelines to set-up and even more pleased with his DJ'ing. This event was for my daughter's Sweet 13 and the music was clean, trendy and kept the kids moving. I was also impressed that he kept the kids in line with appropriate dancing. In the end, the adults were even on the floor - even thought the kids hated us dancing, smiles.

I would definitely recommend using James's services for events of all ages! I had several adults ask for his information for their events. 5 Stars!

Woderful DJ, did an excellent job!

I hired James to do my wedding last April, he did a wonderful job! He met with me and listened to all of my needs up front. He even created a great first dance mix for my husband and I! We hired him for his dj services and uplighting, the uplighting looked beautiful and I got tons of compliments on his work! He did the music for both my ceremony and my reception, and even had every ceremonial song right on que. I definitely would recommend him!

It’s ideal for clubs, parties, concerts, and any event where this effect is desired. Fog also makes any lights look better, especially lights that strobe and move. As long as your venue permits fog, it’s definitely a great addition to consider.

Video Display can be used in many ways. Slideshows, video montages, movies, motion graphics, sports games, presentations, commercials, advertising, live video footage, and even remote DJ services (coming soon!) Get it all on the BIG screen!
