About
"Best DJ in 10 years!", "A dream to work with!", "Exceptional job and had no problem entertaining a crowd of 8,000+ people."

Welcome! I'm DJ James and I own RTB Entertainment and Simply Serendipity Coordinating. I've been DJing, Hosting, MCing, Planning, and Coordinating for almost a dozen years. I do a lot of weddings, but I love a good 80's night, anniversary, or birthday party! Prices vary depending on type of event, time of year, and day of the week. I am always looking for fun events and great business relationships. I am currently trying to add a couple regular gigs as well, which would mean better deals for you! This is why my prices vary so much. I have awesome package deals on my site for weddings, including up-lighting, karaoke, a monogram light, and a top notch photo booth! As a mobile DJ I have great equipment, lights, and speakers... also pictured on the site. RTBDJ.com and SDipKC.com

While I'm still collecting reviews here, you can find a ton on The Knot and Wedding Wire. (Links on my website).

Please visit the website for tons of helpful info. When you're ready, let me buy you a cup of coffee and hear your vision for the big day!

A little more about how I work:

I started DJing when I realized how difficult it was to find a good one and I believed I could succeed where they often fail. Namely, integrity or professionalism. I actually hired a DJ for my own wedding who did a decent show, but man was he a jerk. A DJ should relieve stress, not add to it.

Check out the testimonial page on my site and see things like, "Best DJ in 10 years!" and "A Dream to Work With!" People want someone nice, fun, professional, good with details and planning, but also a great DJ. Peace of mind is paramount with me. Therefore, I specialize in ease as well as fun. Professionalism is so important...especially at a wedding. Your guests will remember your DJ. Make sure they add to the wonderful memory of this unforgettable day.

I can't wait to hear from you and answer all your questions. (***)***-****

I was supremely pleased with the accesibility and professionalism of this DJ. When I needed him he was there, and so accomodating. We had a corporate event that required certain paperwork, and he worked SO hard to get exactly what I needed to submit in a timely fashion. I will definitely bring this guy back to our next event and after that too! Hopefully this time we can buy the photo booth package to amp up the festivities. He has so much to offer and is truly a dream to work with. He pleased the crowd and played everything they wanted while maintaining my requests. Stellar performance- couldn't be happier.
