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!

Awarded Best of Zola
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!

Moline, IL
  • DJ
  • Starts at $3,500
  • Serves Johnston, 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 Obie was so fun and easy to work with. Right away it felt like we had known each other for ages. He knew how to match the vibe we wanted and how to get the party started. He keeps it going all night long and gets everyone on the dance floor. He was one of the highlights of our wedding that our guests kept talking about.

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!

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.

DJ did an awesome job! The client portal was super easy to use and he found all of the weird songs I requested during the ceremony! He also did great during the dancing part of the reception with little direction that I gave him!

Awarded Best of Zola
Andrew interacted great with the crowd and kept the energy going until the night was done! Played all of our requests, no matter how ridiculous they were even if he had to track down the song. Would highly recommend him to make your wedding as special as ours! Played great music for all decades as desired for our range of guests.

Omaha, NE
  • DJ
  • Starts at $800
  • Serves Johnston, IA for additional fees

Really when it comes down to it the reason Ackerman Weddings & Events was started is to help couples create their dream weddings and help relieve the stress that can come with weddings and making sure everything is perfect and goes off without a hitch.

I'm a wedding planner here in Omaha and I have met a lot of different vendors. I've worked with Zach and I think he is an exceptional DJ. It's a nice range of music he's easy to work with and he's very very goal oriented. As far as making sure that the couple that hires him has the best possible event. I would recommend him for your next event!!
