DJ Donte is freaking incredible, we got soooo many compliments on the music all night. Love how his sense of humor comes through his music and we appreciate his attention to detail and overall talent so much. He took what we gave him and completely elevated it to another level beyond what we could have imagined. He is so skillful and knew how to work the crowd/sense the vibe/keep people dancing. Thank you for being the best DJ ever!

The DJ Nixx team is amazing! We had initially booked Nikki for our 2020 wedding, but due to Covid, we had to postpone, and then postpone again. She was incredibly understanding and accommodating and always responded to my frantic emails. Due to scheduling issues, she wasn't available for our 2021 rescheduled wedding date, but was able to set us up with another DJ on her team--DJ Donte. Donte was amazing for the wedding! We had a few recommendations for songs, but we really wanted a DJ that could sense the vibe of the moment and spin accordingly, and WOW did Donte deliver! The cocktail hour and dinner had the perfect ambience, and the dance floor was packed almost all night long! So many of my friends and family came up to me during the wedding to say our DJ was amazing. I honestly want to have another party just so Donte can DJ for it. I can't recommend him enough!

DJ Nixx Entertainment came highly recommended from both our wedding planner and our photographer, and I am so glad we were able to hire Donte as our wedding DJ. Our initial phone call was so easy and I knew he would understand the vibe I was going for. I really did not want a whole lot of cheesy wedding music you hear at every wedding you go to, and Donte totally understood that. I gave him a few songs that I loved as an example of the vibe I was going for and he truly hit the mark with every song he played! We had an absolute blast and he was a huge part in making our wedding so much fun!

Where is the 6th star to rate this guy!!! Donte recently was the DJ at my wedding and he absolutely killed it. He was super easy to talk with in the months leading up to the wedding and actually help remind us of a few items in which we hadn't thought of. He has a very simple and clean setup but don't let it size full you as it packs the punch!! He also helped out as being the MC at the wedding and kept our timeline on track and rolled with the on the spot schedule changes I threw at him. I was truly amazed by was his ability to keep everyone involved from all ages. The young ones to the old classics, he had everyone up on the dance floor at one time or another! Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how fun it was and just the overall experience was an unforgettable. Thanks again Donte for helping make one hell of a wedding for me and my wife!
