Zhem

A Party DJ with more than a decade of experience, DJ Zhem (pronounced jĕm) will work with you personally to ensure your event is exactly what you want and your guests leave entertained.


I am a party DJ first and foremost - I love to share music and keep the crowd moving. Being a DJ isn't just about playing music off a pre-defined playlist, it's about providing an experience from initial contact to the end of the event for you and your guests.

My passion is to bring an awesome experience to every event I have the pleasure of being a part of. The most important relationship on the dance floor is the one between the DJ and the people on the floor, and you will often find me behind my table dancing along with the crowd.

Located in Grand Rapids, MI - I will personally sit down and consuilt with you about your event. My experience in both large and small event production and planning allows me to bring a fresh perspective to many events, and I can offer advice and expertise along with my DJ services as much or as little as you prefer for your event. It's my goal to ensure that you are getting exactly what you want and more from your event and that I am here every step of the way to assist you.

DJ Zhem is the premier DJ choice for weddings, high school and college dances and parties, and all your Event DJ needs - email zhem@zhemproductions.com for more information

Feedback

"Best DJ we have ever had for an event. Our expectations were far below what Zhem provided, and for that we are certainly grateful. The event would be much different without Zhem's expertise as a DJ.
"The lights setup was absolutely perfect... music flowed very well from the start to the end. We certainly were never bored, and have heard nothing less than positive feedback from others. When Zhem spoke during the night it was perfect - never took away from the flow of the music, and it made sense."

-Noodewier-VanderWerp Dorm Leadership, Calvin College, April 2013

"Highly recommended! Professional, responded to requests, added own insight, and created a great atmosphere. Prompt, prepared, and ready to party. Communication before the event was excellent!"

-Schultze-Eldersveld Dorm Leadership, Calvin College, April 2013

"Zhem was AWESOME! Everyone agreed, the best DJ we've ever had! Everyone had a great time ...Zhem played great songs that were fun to dance to. Everyone loved the lights and music videos that played along with the music. Music was constant and fun! Zhem was involved with the music and got into it himself which made it that much more fun for the students. Zhem was relational with students and chaperones and had very open communication with music choices."

-Western Michigan Christian High School, February 2013

-Kyle & Holli, June 2012

"Everything was great from initial communication to set up, pricing, music - it was all perfect! ...recommended based on organization, communication skills, talent for understanding music to play and when to play certain songs, professionalism, pricing, equipment, and lights."

-Mona Shores Class of 2002 Reunion, 2012

"Did a wonderful job providing appropriate background music throughout dinner, and very fun dancing music! We definitely appreciate the flexibility and quality of music! Zhem was very professional and had lots of excitement! One of the best moments of the night was seeing the whole dorm get up on the dance floor. I was amazed how quickly people felt comfortable enough to dance and enjoy each others' company."

-Rooks-VanDellen Dorm Leadership, Calvin College, April 2012

"...worked to understand the type of environment we were trying to foster and did everything in an extremely professional manner. We appreciate Zhem's willingness to work with us and his knowledge of song's content - what's appropriate and what's not."

-Weekend Programming Coordinator at Calvin College, 2012

"Always the professional. Read the crowd very well and kept the party moving forward, exactly what we needed! Presence and appearance were high above the norm and far exceeded expectations."
"Very understanding of our event... genuinely cared about the success of the evening." "Learned about the audience and catered to them. It was excellent!" "Fun, yet professional ...on time, played the best music, and quite interactive as a DJ. Flexible with things and had a lot of fun doing it."

-Calvin College Dorm Leadership, Spring 2011

"I have never heard a DJ being complimented so much as I did at our wedding. He was the one thing I didn't have to worry about the whole day."

-Ryan & Effie, July 2010

"DJ Zhem did a great job DJing our campus event. The amount of interjection mixed in with songs was perfect. He made everyone feel welcome and spent time with students who were interested in how the equipment worked... Sound quality was great all night. I especially liked when he pointed out students who were having fun. That made them feel comfortable."

-Jay Wise, Assistant Dean of Residence Life at Calvin College

"Michael (DJ Zhem) has provided the music at our annual Chaos Day and Mud Bowl events for the residence halls and apartments at Calvin College for the last 6 years.  These outdoor events draw hundreds of students and are comprised of various crazy games and relay races, where the musical soundtrack contributes as much to the fun and excitement as the games themselves.  Michael is always prepared, has a great feel for what the crowd will respond to, and has been great to work with. I'd recommend him highly for his DJ work in any venue!"
