Elite DJ
(303) 422-3218
When Matt Kenfield started his business four years ago, he built it on the foundation of having “young guys who are really great at what they do.” As Matt puts it “we’re that perfect mix of being fun and professional – we want to assist the fun, but we’re not trying to be the entertainment. The bride and groom should still me the center of attention.” Great at encouraging participation, and experienced at emceeing and coordinating the events, his DJs are reliable, professional, and will customize their services to fit your needs. Emphasizing their focus on customer service, they have a strict 24-hour response policy, and Matt ensures that couples can meet the DJ who will be at their event ahead of time. Elite DJ offers an online planning system where couples can create playlists and requests for the DJ – and can go in and change it as many times as they like, which is easier and more convenient than writing it down on paper months in advance. They also provide uplighting through wireless LED setups, which can transform the way a room looks without wires running all over the place. For the best service, support, and most professional DJs in town, look no further than Elite DJ.
