DJ John was prompt and professional. He was friendly and accommodating. He has incredible style and knows what the crowd wants. Our wedding was fabulous and he was the man for the job!! He was detailed and worked months again to get things perfect!! He worked really hard, and was so patient. His work is professional, elite and divine! He was perfect for our wedding. We would refer him over and over again! THANK YOU DJ JOHN.

I had a sweet sixteen birthday party at my house for my daughter on June 14, 2014. And hired John The Great Pretender as a DJ. I can not express how much everyone at the party enjoyed him and the music that he played. He played music that fit everyone. And played the music that my daughter wanted at her party. The people could not stop talking about how professional and good he was He also had karaoke that everyone had fun with. At my next barbeque or party that I have I will definitely have John as a DJ again. He was Great and would highly recommend him to anyone who is having any kind of celebration.

John is by far the best karaoke MC I have ever used in my many years of throwing client parties. He has a great set up, is very self-reliant and is fantastic with all of our guests. John accommodates us time and time again. I recommend his services to anyone who wants to spice up an event no matter what size the party is.

Hey John,
Thank you for everything, you really went above and beyond for us! Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ ! We will definitely be using you for future functions and will be recommending you to everyone!! Everyone loved you! Thanks again!

CONSUMATE PROFESSIONAL….is the best way to describe the GREAT PRETENDER. He doesn’t have to pretend to be good at his job because he just is! My company events couldn’t make it without his expertise. Various types and many decades of all kinds of music- you can’t go wrong with choosing him. He is prompt, flexible, and has a courteous demeanor, while consistently providing the best atmosphere for a great time! Never disappointed!

John – Thank you for making my 40th birthday party such a fun time last night. We all just had a blast, your music selection was spot on all night and you were so accommodating to all of our requests. Can’t wait to do it again!

John Raftery was everything we wanted when it came time to booking a DJ for our wedding. He was very responsive in the months leading up to the wedding, which was an incredible help when it came to keeping the stress level low during what is typically a stressful time. When the big day arrived, John was able to keep the flow of the wedding ceremony and reception going at a nice pace. When it was time to get the party started, he was able to get bodies out on the dance floor and keep them there until it was time to leave. John’s years of experience definitely showed. We had the best day of our life and a lot that is because of how much fun the reception was thanks to John Raftery’s expertise as a DJ. We can’t thank the man enough and would happily recommend him for any and all occasions.

We want to thank you for helping to make our wedding so special. All your emails beforehand, and changing the format several times was greatly appreciated. Your song suggestions were also a big help. We especially loved the CD you made of our song choices to be played at the wedding. The other CD of our wedding song and the song that I danced to with my son was also a special touch. You did a great job! I would be glad to recommend you to anyone for any occasion. Thanks again. If we ever have another celebration that we feel requires music, we definitely will be calling you

I just had to drop you a few lines to thank-you for doing a wonderful job at our wedding party. Everyone loved your large selection of music and people never stopped dancing all night. My favorite was your karaoke segments and by the end of the night I think everyone had sung at least one song or duet. The love song I sang to my wife went over real big and my friends are still talking about it. You were very professional and all the announcements you made during the evening kept all informed as to what was happening. Thanks again,
