"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 video 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, Febraury 2013
"We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Zhem was really fun and was invested in making our reception a success from the moment we contacted him all the way until the end of our wedding. Thank you so much for making our wedding so fun! :)"
-Rachel & Adam, December 2012
"We had so much fun at our wedding reception and received a lot of compliments about how fun Zhem made the dancing. The music choices were perfect and couldn't have been better!"
-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 were 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."
-Calvin College Dorm Leadership, Spring 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."
"Highly recommended!" "Fantasic!" "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
"Fit exactly what I wanted. Zhem was amazing and everyone said so. 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."
-Effie, married to her husband Ryan 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!"
-John Witte, Dean of Residence Life at Calvin College
"Michael was a wonderful DJ and we were very pleased with both his professionalism and his friendly service. He met with us several times before the wedding to ensure that he knew exactly what we were looking for in a DJ and was successful at creating a relaxed, yet very fun and energized environment for the reception. I would and already have recommended him as a DJ because he is incredibly personable, genuine, and talented DJ."
-Chelsea & Jeremy, June 2009
"Michael was funny and polite and engaging and did a great job. Most appealing to me was the fact that he was very, very low maintenence. He competently and quickly found music we liked, he found some obscure requests that I had, and he did his set-up and take down of his equipment very quickly, and did not need somebody holding his hand. This was a HUGE help on a busy wedding day."
-Matt, married to his beautiful bride Kendra on July 2009
