"I MC Events" is Owner Operated
With "I MC Events" there is no bait and switch. I am the only person who will Dj & MC your wedding or event. I will never sub-contract your event out to a less qualified DJ or MC.

I Am a Full Time DJ & MC
From your initial inquiry until the moment your event concludes I will be there to offer you the highest level of customer service and a truly specialized DJ & MC experience.

How Much Should Your Wedding DJ Cost?
I was honored to be a contributor to the article "How Much Should Your Wedding DJ Cost?" by Wedding Blogger Stacie Tamaki. It explains why some DJ's charge as much as they do and why others charge so little. Reading it will better prepare you to qualify any DJ company you consider hiring.

Matching Neckwear:
There is no additional charge for me to wear a color coordinated neck or bow tie even if I have to go out and purchase one to complement your wedding colors. Read more. . .

Payment Methods:
Cash, check, Visa, MC, Am Express, Discover - Credit cards accepted through Square

Recent Testimonials
Community Service • October 2011

We are so appreciative of your service to the Spirit of Japantown Festival. You did work beyond what was asked - meeting all those special requests, working in changes in the schedule, emceeing a large portion of the festival and bringing in a professional feel and performance all day.

I loved your instincts regarding pacing and working in the introductions of VIPs (even when they arrived late). You handled the audio needs of the Maids and made then very happy as well as the split second timing of the ScoJourners set.

All in all, we could not have had the smooth operation without you. Wesley Jazz members know the difference and commented to me how it was superb working with you.

Thank you very much from a most grateful committee. Pam and I know what a sacrifice of time this takes and how much your talent and experience are valuable.

We are really grateful for your agreement to work with the Spirit Festival and thank you for all that you do.

Thank you so much from all of us!

Reiko and Pam
