DJ Obie

Moline, IL
  • DJ
  • Starts at $3,500
  • Serves Fort Dodge, IA

I got into DJing by accident. After learning that working as an Industrial Engineer in a fortune 500 company didn't bring me much fulfillment, a friend suggested I join his DJ company. His company supplied DJ services for over 200 weddings a year! After my first wedding gig I was hooked. It gave me purpose, and an outlet I never knew was possible. I quickly became the most requested DJ in the company and within my market. Now I DJ on my own, and I'm so blessed to be able to curate an atmosphere of joy where families can connect.

DJ DAS is one of our very favorite DJS. As a Venue Owner it is very important that the DJ our Booked Couples hire make their guests enjoy the evening. After 50 wedding+ we know that all DJS are not created equal. When we view our Booked Couples Wedding Planner they submit to us a few weeks before the wedding there are 2 places we quickly glance at to determine it is going to be a good event. The first is the caterer and the second is the DJ. If their DJ spot says "DJ DAS" then we know its going to be a good wedding reception. Because when DJ DAS is in the house everyone is happy!

Born from a long time love of music, an entrepreneurial spirt, and an eye for design and organization ASE DJ was started 18 years ago.

A true "American Dream” story; their once “side hustle” has blossomed into a full time growing business that also employs their children and is still sparking their creativity to this day.

ASEDJ was a great part of our wedding day! The booking process was thorough and our venue preview with them was smooth and our questions were answered. The provided website with a timeline helped us truly navigate the smaller details of the day. The uplighting they provided set the mode perfectly. It was our DJ’s first Hindu Wedding and he tackled that challenge head on and did great. He was flexible getting our wedding back on schedule and adjusted to changes with ease.

I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Jessie of Vows & Vibes on a project where they set up an event to do what they do best: throw a great party. Not only is Chris an incredibly talented performer, but a very thoughtful person—even though I was just the photographer, he was sure to ask my what my favorite song was so he could play it during the festivities! And Jessie is such a bright, bubbly person, it was such a joy to watch her whisk around the dance floor getting to know people and hyping everyone up. They were both so easy to talk to and I enjoyed spending time with them throughout the evening. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for a different, fun reception experience!

Felix & Fingers was the best addition to my wedding! We had a BLAST. It’s the best mix between a live band and sing along karaoke (but you don’t want your uncle to get the mic, you know?). They did beautiful ceremony music, incredible sax jazz during cocktail hour to keep it classy. Then, they kept everyone engaged and entertained for the reception, from my aunt in a walker to my college friends twerking. We danced the night away but lost our voices from screaming along with the songs too. 10/10 you can’t go wrong with dueling pianos - DJs and wedding bands are out, Felix & Fingers is IN!

I’m thrilled that hiring them as a DJ gets me a day-of coordinator included, because that’s something I planned on getting for my wedding anyways!

  • Serves Fort Dodge, IA

With more than 25 years of actual DJ experience, you won’t find a more accomplished, skilled and entertaining person to help you with your wedding. Music has been in my life from an early age. At 8 years old, I would pretend to DJ on the radio using my parents’ Beach Boys records and a wooden spoon for a mic. At 17, I started DJing on the radio and I was hooked! In college I majored in communication and performing arts, where I honed my improvisation and listening skills to better connect with people and smoothly adjust to every situation.

John was amazing. From our first meeting to our private final dance, John made our wedding day so special. He read the crowd during the dance and kept it packed all night. We had so many people and even other vendors, tell us that he was one of the best DJs they have seen! We danced the night away with all of our friends on the dance floor just like we wanted. You will not regret hiring John to be a part of your big day. I truly believe that the DJ sets the tone for the whole wedding and John does an amazing job.

Would HIGHLY recommend PrayzHim Entertainment. Professional, prepared, detail-oriented, genuine, and hilarious are just a few words I would use to describe Andrew Spence and his team. Andrew flawlessly set up for an outdoor venue he had never been too, and everyone could hear our ceremony even with some sprinkles of rain and 15 mph winds! He worked together with our videographer to capture the audio for our video at both the ceremony and reception locations. At our reception, everyone had fun with the photo booth, dismissing of tables, and musical chairs scavenger hunt. My family normally does not dance at weddings, but he kept everyone out there the entire night. 10/10 would recommend PrayzHim Entertainment!!
