We rented a Mandap structure for our wedding this past weekend. It was exactly what we were looking for and looked gorgeous with the flower arrangements! We got ivory draping since it provided a nice contrast to the redwood trees and the flowers. The only thing is that we didn't realize it didn't have a fire structure. Fortunately, our priest was creative with a makeshift structure. Overall we had a good experience and Jason is very nice. More...

Had the pleasure of working with Jason and DJ John for our wedding.  John did a great a job of keeping the wedding events going in order and his music selection was great for our wedding.  There were no hiccups and everything went smoothly. More...

Jason and his team did a great job at our wedding at the Brazilian Room in September 2019. We used them for our DJ, photo booth, market lights, and a few other small rentals. It was great they had so many things to offer. Jason was very helpful as we went back and forth thru several options leading up to the wedding. The DJ was great and very friendly. He did a great job mixing things up to get folks of all ages on the dance floor. The photo booth was a big hit, with a very friendly attendant and plenty of fun props. Many compliments have come since from family and friends. We would highly recommend Quantum in the future! More...

Jason and his team were amazing for our wedding at the Brazil Room this July. We hired Quantum for lighting inside and out, DJ, photobooth, lawn games, and an arbor for the ceremony. Everything was a competitive price with other vendors and Jason was very responsive via email. For other reviewers stating that he is hard to get a hold of, there was definitely a difference in communication once we got into the busy wedding season or on weekends, but I don't blame him given that the times most convenient for most working people to talk (nights and weekends) is when Jason is working. However, like I said, he was usually most responsive via email and throughout the 9 months or so between hiring him and our actual wedding, we had several phone calls and I don't even know how many emails I asked him with questions (to which he never seemed annoyed!). The photobooth was great and our guests loved it, the arbor and lighting created the perfect ambiance for our wedding, and I had numerous guests rave about the music and DJ. The dance floor was full almost all night long! They sent a DropBox with all photobooth pictures and even mailed us the physical photobooth album. I would highly recommend Jason and Quantum for any events, especially at the Brazil Room because he obviously knows the venue extremely well. Thanks for making our wedding even more memorable!

Highly recommend. Used for string lights for our wedding. Jason was super responsive, timely and staff was friendly. Everything went super smooth and looked amazing. He even helped me with some extra things with ladders. Thank you so much for helping me on my big day! Can't wait to work with him again. More...

We went with Quantum Party Productions based off a recommendation from our caterer, and we're very glad we did! After emailing back and forth with Jason, we were told that we'd received a complimentary upgrade to a more experienced DJ. We worked with John Harris, who was a consummate professional. He played all of our special (nerdy) songs, was on the mic exactly the amount we wanted him to be, and mixed the music perfectly. More...

This review has been long over do. I hired Quantum Prod for my wedding back in November 2017 for a DJ and photobooth service. They were amazing! Tons of amazing props for the photobooth, and the attendants were so nice with the kids. I also hired them for a company holiday party in January 2019. Again they did not disappoint. They brought lights with the DJ and photobooth was larger and had a second table of more props. Highly recommend - Jason able accommodated with my last minute booking. More...

We hired Jason for our corporate holiday party and his services were awesome! He provided our DJ & photo booth, along with life-size jenga and connect 4. Guests had a great time, and the photo booth was a huge hit. I'd definitely recommend his services for your next event! More...

Quantum Party Productions did the lighting and drapes for my wedding this past September 2018. Jason and his team did an amazing job! He was probably the most responsive vendor out of all my wedding vendors. I reached out to him about a year before my wedding and he was very friendly and helpful with every detail along the way. Any changes or things I wanted added on, he replied and updated everything quickly! I had a vision and he made it happen. My wedding was held at the Bently Reserve in SF. I wanted my ceremony and reception to look like two completely different rooms and they made it happen! My drapes and all the lighting were set up beautifully! I had everything from uplights, pinspots, customized gobos, the ceiling gobos, and spotlights. He even changed the colors of my lighting when it was time for my guests to dance. So awesome! It still amazes me at how much lighting can drastically change the look of a venue. I loved it all and highly recommend Quantum!! Thank you again Jason and to your team for helping make my dream wedding come true!Photos: Coco Tran Photography More...

I recently used Quantom for a corporate holiday party, Jason was amazing in helping coordinate and was very patient with all the emails and questions. The day of, his team showed up on time and did exactly what was discussed. I will definitely be using them for all future events. More...

Quantum was great to work with! We hired them on our wedding day for market lights and an arbor. They were prompt, professional and attentive. We only used some of their services, and they were still willing to work with us  and we never felt pressured to order more. Their prices were the best on the market when we did our research, and our lights looked beautiful! More...

I recently got married at the Brazilian Room and hired QPP for market lighting and a few rentals, including a sound system, chiavari chairs for our ceremony, and corn hole. Working with QPP and Jason was so easy. Jason was always quick to email me back whenever I had questions, needed to rent additional items, or wanted to confirm timing. On the day of our wedding, the team showed up right on time to set everything up and were on time at the end of the night to take everything down--totally professional. The market lighting was absolutely beautiful both inside and outside, and the outside lighting allowed our guests to enjoy their drinks on the patio late into the evening. I seriously would not have wanted to have a wedding at the Brazilian Room without that lighting! Honestly, I have only one regret, which is that we didn't work with one of the caterers that Jason recommended when we first met him at the BR wedding fair--I should have listened to him! All in all, QPP was one of the best vendors we hired for our wedding day, and I would highly recommend working with them. More...

I had the opportunity to work with Jason as the DJ for my wedding. His DJ skills were exceptional. There were no awkward silence in between songs as he transitioned them ever so smoothly. He worked so well with my coordinator and made sure the songs I requested were played at the exact times I needed them. It was just so perfect! He was very professional. Prior to the wedding day I exchanged multiple emails concerning the DJ service as well as rentals (Yes, he offers equipment rentals, drapery, photobooth, etc) yet he was so patient with all the questions I had. His prices are so reasonable too! I highly recommend Jason and his team for any DJ services!! More...

Jason Shires is the man! Seriously, in 2006 my best friend hired him as a DJ for her wedding. In 2011 I hired him as a DJ in my wedding and just a couple weeks ago in 2018 my sister hired him as a DJ in her wedding. I will recommend him to anyone! He keeps the crowd moving! He really sets the tone for the wedding! His timelines run smoothly. He is just an all around amazing DJ! (Or is it MC-emcee?) lol whatever- he's really good! Every time someone asks me if I know a good DJ I recommend him! He also does lighting, draping, etc. His pricing is also phenomenal. I mean look at how many reviews he has! 99% are 5 stars! Hire him for your wedding. You won't be sorry! More...

Quantum Party Productions was sub-contracted by Carrie Dove Catering to do all the lighting and various rentals for our recent wedding at the Brazilian Room. We were blown away by how Quantum Party was able to transform the Brazilian room into the perfect romantic vision we had! The Brazilian Room is a great venue, but can feel a bit dated, especially with some of the wood paneling. We were going for a very romantic, twinkling-light feel and Quantum Party really delivered. From the moment I walked into the building I was surprised by how beautiful everything looked. We had string-lights along the path up to the building. Through the main door was a beautiful standing curtain with dangling lights behind, which had a truly romantic feel and made a perfect back-drop for our photo-booth later that night. On the patio we had market lights and lounge furniture rentals that perfectly matched our theme. Inside, the main room was transformed with draping from the beams along with strung lights. Surrounding the room were up-lights that sealed the whole look. I just can't express how happy I was with how it all turned out. Really beautiful.As for the service, everything was great. Quantum Party worked with us to make our vision happen. Some of our lighting requests were uncommon and not typical for the venue, but this didn't stop Quantum Party. They worked seamlessly with our caterer to figure out the details. On the day-of, I don't know how they did it, but everything was setup within 2 hours without a hitch. Thank you Quantum Party for making our wedding the perfect day and one we will never forget; it was beautiful. More...

Quantum Party Productions was responsible for the beautiful lighting and drapery at our wedding. They were sub-contracted by Carrie Dove and they pulled the entire wedding's vision together. I did not have the pleasure of speaking with them, but they proved themselves with their final product. If you look at the images, you can see the way they did our wedding lighting at the Brazilian Room. As the bride, my vision was to make the Brazilian Room as romantic as possible. Quantum was instrumental in making my vision become a reality. The whole wedding was dream-like. Even my parents, who have impossible standards, only had positive things to say. I really appreciate their work and I would use their services again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend this vendor for lighting and drapery needs. More...

Quantum Party Pro helped complete the day-of look I had been dreaming of with the simple addition of the right chair. Quantum provided the gold chiavari chairs with white cushions for our wedding ceremony and reception. The representative, Jason responded quickly to my request for quote and was able to accommodate my request for additional chairs.Would definitely use them again for any future events! More...

Recommended by a good friend of mine. This company did an amazing job in our wedding day! Jason was our DJ that day. Punctual, easy to communicate with and was open to any song request. We also rented their photo booth station, everyone loved it! Great picture quality, provided a variety of props AND they gave us an album of the copies of the guest's pictures w/ their own personalmessage. Definitely recommend this company!! More...

We hired Jason and Payton as DJ's for our wedding recently, and were extremely impressed. If these two individuals represent all of Quantum, you can be sure that you get more than you pay for. Sound was done beautifully, but even more impressive was how accommodating they were. Although it wasn't their job, they offered to grab me drinks and ensured that I was taken care of comprehensively.I would highly recommend their services if want a successful celebration of any kind!

My wife and I recently got married at The Brazilian Room in Berkeley, CA. We asked Quantum to both DJ (which was done by Jason Shires) as well as bring a day of coordinator (which was done by Jason's wife, Kit). They both performed amazingly well. I will say that communication early on was a bit dodgy, but I imagine they are so busy. We did end up coordinating well enough through email and phone calls. Jason was very receptive and calming. He was open to many music suggestions and was really easy to work with. Kit was the same. We set up a detailed schedule of what was going to happen on the big day and as a result, everything went off without incident. Kit was super easy to work with. We did not have to worry about anything. She pretty much told everyone what to do and where to stand/go/say etc. Both of them were awesome to work with. Jason played some excellent tunes and MCed real well. He encouraged lots of folks to come dance and his cues were on point. Highly recommend Quantum! More...

We were referred to QPP by a friend and are so glad we were! We worked with Jason and had a great experience. He was extremely easy to talk to and very responsive at all hours. We got a great deal for photobooth and DJ and probably would have gone with him for lighting as well, but our venue (Palm Event Center) only allowed preferred vendors. Hoping to see QPP on that list!

Jason and his wife ended up being our photobooth attendants and they were such a blast to work with! They really know how to go with the flow and get people excited. We got so many compliments on how great the photobooth props were and how fun they made taking pictures (especially from all the older guests that were harder to entertain). They even came with their own materials to make a photo album for us that everyone signed! Jason even came out and rapped to a song on the dance floor and just got everyone hyped up. It was well timed, natural, and such a fun and memorable moment!

Im so glad we picked Quantum for our wedding last summer. Jason was the easiest vendor to work with. He was very accommodating and prices were very competitive (I did a lot of research). John, our DJ, was also great. He was such a good MC and kept the party moving. We gave him a detailed schedule and he followed it perfectly: he stuck to the schedule, had the music choices down, and made the announcements better than I could have asked for. Finally, the photo booth folks were super friendly, had a great booth and props, and even gave us a photo album to take home with copies of the photos the same night. Electronic versions were emailed soon after.  Awesome job!! More...

LOOK NO FURTHER. Quantum Party Productions is a fantastic company to work with if you're looking for DJ or lighting services for a wedding. My husband and I hired QPP to DJ/MC and provide lighting for our wedding at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley this past May and they did an excellent job. The owner of the company, Jason, ended up DJ-ing our wedding himself and he was so well organized leading up to and during the event, kept us on time, worked with our officiant to determine the best approach/use of mics and made sure our parents, best man, and M.O.H. knew exactly when to give their speeches and helped with transition. A couple weeks before the wedding, Jason scheduled a call with me to run through our playlists (shared via Spotify) and make sure he knew every special song we wanted played (ceremony / first dance / parents dance / etc.) I would HIGHLY recommend QPP for any wedding - they rock!

I used Quantum Party Productions for my wedding at the Brazil Room this past March 2018. We went with Jason as our DJ, and it was very worth it. Going to other weddings, I didn't think I'd notice when a DJ was bad (e.g. poor transitions, etc), but I did at a previous wedding I attended, so we wanted a quality DJ. It was great, I never once had to think about music as Jason reads the crowd, and everyone said they had a great time. Jason was great about providing information beforehand and giving us background into his services, he assisted with getting people to where they had to be, speeches, and introductions. He gives you a list of songs to pick out and recommendations, which was very helpful for me. I was overall very pleased and happy with Quantum and would very much recommend them to those looking for a DJ in the bay area. More...

My experience with Jason was absolutely AMAZING. He came early to set up, and even had someone double check to make sure I was still wanted the same songs to walk down the isle. Which I REALLY appreciated. I personally did not give Jason any songs outside of my first dance songs to play. Just letting Jason read the crowd and play music to the type of people on the dance floor, made the night. He DJ’d for almost 6 hours and everyone was on the dance floor the WHOLE time (so sweaty and way too much fun). I would definitely refer him to any friends family, or strangers. He was professional, kind, fun, and great to have at your party. A DJ that can read a crowd like that, is so so so important. I had MANY referrals to Jason and his crew and so glad they pointed me his way. More...

We were referred to QPP by a friend who used them at her wedding and got an amazing and affordable deal for the Photo Booth for our June 7th 2018 wedding that came with an album and art supplies for our pix. Jason was always very attentive in answering all my questions and emails and was able to let me pay it off on a payment plan up until a month before the wedding. They knew the location of the venue, were on time, and set up nicely! Staff was great! They had a huge variety of props and I loved the gold sequin for the backdrop (which you can choose form the colors they have). I even loved the follow up email post wedding! Thanks for making this Photo Booth experience a great one! I would use them again for sure!!

Jason was so professional throughout the planning and day of. He made the day go off flawlessly. He made sure to ask the important questions that I may have forgotten about. He also had great tips for me that only people who have been at this venue before would know. He showed up early, and came prepared. He played all the songs I asked him to play, and had great taste in music.  We also rented chairs from him, which were exactly what I was asking for. He also did all of our lighting including our custom gobo lighting. I have nothing but great things to say about Quantum Party Productions. You also can't beat his pricing! More...

Jason was quick and responsive when I looked on the internet for a sturdy stand for a Step&Repeat backdrop that I needed last minute.

Very long overdue review... Jason was the DJ for our wedding reception at the Brazil Room in Tilden Park. He played every single song we requested and was a great MC for the event. Bonus points... he was able take control of the room and keep everyone calm when an elderly relative suffered a stroke towards the end of the evening (ambulance, paramedics, etc thank goodness everything turned out ok!).  And Jason was willing to extend the event at no charge so that we could have our last dance and end the evening on a positive note.

We had an excellent experience working with Jason at Quantum Party Productions! We were referred to Jason's company and reached out to him, to which he promptly responded back. Jason provided us with a personal touch, taking the time to get to know us in person and handling all of our questions and requests himself. We went thoroughly over the logistics of our wedding, and walked us through what types of services his company offered, and even giving us a demonstration of the dj equipment. By the end of the meeting, we were very comfortable and so decided to go with his company.We cannot say enough of how Jason was so personable, professional and accommodating. He even provided us with samples of musics, along with a list of different songs and artists across various genres of music to help us choose the right songs for each event. We greatly appreciated him providing his recommendations as well and his validation of our song choices in that they would work within each of our events. With 3 days to the wedding, we ended up having to change the ceremony from outdoors to indoors, and Jason was once again very flexible and accommodating and very promptly responded back to us which is exactly what you want when you're trying to deal with big last minute changes 3 days before the wedding. It's not just dj service that his company provides; they are like a one-stop shop, and were able to provide us with lighting, dance floor and chair rentals. It made it super convenient to get all this through one company versus working with multiple vendors. Jason went above and beyond by drawing up diagrams on how to our outdoor reception lighting would look like over the guest tables, etc. On top of all that, Jason coordinated with the our venue himself, relieving us of the stresses of being the middleman. He confidently assured us that he could handle it and ended up being true to his word. He was there personally to make sure his crew set up to our vision and checked in on us towards the end of the night to make sure all was going well. We cannot thank him enough and highly recommend him for your big day. More...

Jason was awesome to work with! He was professional, quick to respond and friendly throughout the whole process. He sent us a comprehensive questionnaire to fill out prior to the wedding, which was nice because my husband and I really got to take the time to think about what music/song we wanted where. At the reception, he did a great job of keeping the flow and being present with the crowd, all while playing a solid mix of our music style, popular songs of today and wedding favorites. I highly recommend! More...

We used Quantum Party Productions (Jason) for our wedding at the SF Ritz Carlton and were SO HAPPY with the result. They crushed it. The executive summary is: super easy to work with, great ideas for the flow of the wedding, amazing photobooth, and did an amazing job keeping the trains running on time through the reception.

First, we met Jason at his office in Fidi, which was very convenient. He had a binder that made many of our reception choices easy. Being certified wedding planners, he also had many ideas for how to sequence out the reception, suggestions for the various dances, etc. He made us feel very confident that the reception would go off without a hitch.

Our photobooth vendor completely flaked a week before the wedding (something that is a serious problem with small vendors of weddings). Luckily, Jason was right there. The photobooth props were the best I've ever seen at a wedding and the photobooth attendant was simply incredible. He was so helpful in suggesting props, getting people fired up, and keeping everything moving. I don’t think I've ever been to a wedding where the photobooth guy didn't mail it in, but the attendant Jason had was amazing.

Finally, Jason on the wedding day was awesome. Without giving him individual song recommendations, he played music that had all our guests (including the older people) up and dancing literally all night. He was also amazing at keeping our timeline moving, reminding us to cut the cake, coordinating the light levels in the room. He truly owned his responsibility of making sure the reception was a success.

He has a really great sound set up and offers several other services including lighting and photo booths for a great deal when booking together. Working with him was effortless because he knows his music, can read the crowd, and his event experience was evident on how professional and knowledgeable he was in knowing how to throw an amazing event.

Jason was the DJ at my wedding last month, and he was fantastic! He was also so easy to work with in the months leading up to the wedding. The music at the wedding was among the top considerations in planning, and I truly couldn't be more grateful for Jason. He asks all the right questions about how we wanted the reception to go, and he was able to mix in both bhangra music with top 40/pop music so well. We also had a dholak player come to the reception for a bit, and Jason was an amazing complement there! I couldn't recommend him more. More...

Jason is the best DJ! He did an amazing job with the music and creating a positive and fun vibe at our wedding at the Brazilian Room. We received multiple compliments on "our DJ." Jason is extremely professional. We bought him a meal from our caterer, but he did not want to eat on the job so he made sure to eat afterwards (something we never even thought twice about). He was also extremely helpful with music and decor/set-up suggestions. He is very charismatic and is an excellent DJ and MC! More...

From the first time we met with Jason until he served as the DJ of our daughter's wedding reception at the Brazilian Room in early July, Jason was a joy to work with.  He was always friendly and responsive to our needs, and patient on the day of the celebration when a variety of family members had lots of ideas for him.He also set up and ran the video of our daughter's wedding that took place on the east coast a week before.I highly recommend Jason and Quantum Party Productions for anyone seeking a DJ who also can act smoothly as an MC.

We booked Quantum for our wedding at the Brazilian Room earlier in June and were very happy with their services. Jason was our DJ and we did a few phone consultations leading up to the big day, which was helpful so we knew what to anticipate throughout the wedding day itself. He was an absolute pro and set the right tone throughout the night. We wanted to make sure that our guests would be on the dance floor all night and they were! He was great at reading the crowd and was also kind enough to accommodate some obscure requests from our guests. He's done tons of wedding at the Brazilian Room which is another reason we hired him. His pricing was also affordable and he offered us a discount given that our wedding was on a Friday night. We highly recommend him! More...

Jason and Kit were excellent. For our wedding, we hired Jason as our DJ and Kit as our day-of coordinator. They are very experienced especially at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley. Jason had great recommendations for how to make the event flow. While we had a few songs requests, we trusted Jason to make selections. He was able to read the crowd and played great music. Everyone on the dance floor had a great time. Kit took care of all the details so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. She ensured setup/clean up and the wedding timeline ran smoothly so that we could enjoy the whole day! I would strongly recommend both of them. More...

My husband and I were recently married at the Brazilian Room in Tilden Park, and Jason did an amazing job DJing the event! From the planning stage to the day of the event, he was professional, responsive and all-around outstanding.

We were planning our wedding remotely, and he was able to work with us through Skype. He provided us with an extensive catalogue and useful suggestions for our wedding music. He was also able to obtain our requested songs for our First/Last Dances, as well as all of our other specifically requested music. We loved that we were able to tell him genres of music that we and our guests would probably like (there was quite a range of ages at our wedding), and he skillfully felt out the crowd to play great background music during lunch and dancing music once lunch was over. The music he played had the dance floor full with guests of every age dancing all at once – it was quite a hit!

One of the areas in which he shined was how he was able to adapt to the pace of the event while making sure we kept on schedule. His familiarity with the venue was also invaluable as the Brazilian Room has many very strict rules about music. We tremendously appreciated his all-around experience and skill, and we thought he did an amazing job with everything (our guests told us they thought he did fantastically too)! We wholeheartedly endorse Quantum Productions and especially Jason. If you’re looking for a wedding DJ, you will be thrilled with them.

To be honest, if I had to pick a 'favorite' interaction with a vendor from our wedding last month it was Quantum Party Productions.  Jason and his staff were extremely professional, responsive, and easy to work with.  They did not try to upsell me unnecessarily (one competitor sent a long essay about how we needed to hire a DJ or everyone would hate our wedding!) In contrast to that, Jason provided helpful advice specific to our venue and our vision (intimate wedding at lake temescal beach house) and delivered!  Highly recommend. More...

Quantum was recommended to us by our caterer, and we are beyond thrilled with how everything for our wedding turned out. We had Jason as our DJ and also took advantage of their lighting and heat lamp services. He was patient with us, answered all of our many questions, and was super helpful throughout the whole planning process. Our wedding was at the Brazilian Room and it made all the difference to work with someone who knew the space so well. He was an integral part of the evening and helped to keep the schedule on track. Jason was absolutely spot on with the music selection. He read the room the entire night, played all of our "must have" songs, and kept people up and dancing the entire night! Many of our wedding guests still talk about how great the music was.  Definitely would recommend Jason at Quantum Party Productions! More...

Jason is an amazing DJ who did an awesome job with both our lights and our music! We got married almost 8 months ago and we still get compliments on the music at our wedding. He was responsive to our tastes and preferences and kept our wedding well timed and fun! I can't say enough good things about him, we have a few friends getting married this year and we recommend him to everyone we know. But true testament is that a few of our guests are also getting married and we have been asked several times who our share was! You can't go wrong with Jason and QMEP he is amazing!! More...

We discovered Quantum through a bridal show in the SF Presidio. The owner, Jason, was very friendly and approachable from the start, and it was great working with him. The company overall was very accommodating, friendly, and they really listened to what we wanted and how we wanted music and lighting to enhance our day. The cost was very reasonable and the quality was great. The only issue we had was during the ceremony. We were supposed to have mics for both the bride and groom and we did not receive them. The situation was handled very well and we still ended up very satisfied with the services we received. Recommend to everyone. :) More...

Jason was awesome! He brought the party to the wedding and really helped to make our wedding memorable. My husband and I enjoyed working with him beforehand and appreciated his professionalism. The amount of different light options and ideas he had really helped us to create the special environment we dreamed of for our wedding. The Photo Booth and props were the best I have ever seen. Our friends and family were so excited and coundn't stay away from it the entire night. At the end of the wedding, they had put together a photo album with a copy of every photo that was taken that night. It is definitely something we will cherish forever. Jason thank you for making our day special and we have/will recommend him and his company for years to come. More...

We were so happy we discovered party productions and loved Jason as our DJ at the Brazilian room in September. Couldn't recommend him more. Jason was great to work with, finding time to talk with our busy schedule, was always friendly and responsive to our needs. He also gave us great advice on flow of the evening, since he's obviously done a lot of weddings! He was able to coordinate having our first dance outside on the patio, which is what I really wanted. We sent him a list of song suggestions, and he played so many of our suggestions! Our guest were so excited about the dance floor, saying it was one of the best ones they've seen. I had a blast and couldn't have had more fun at my own wedding. He was very responsive to the fact when I told him my Dad was sensitive to very loud music, keeping the volume at the perfect level. My dad kept saying how great Jason was, and he danced more then I had ever seen him.He was great during our ceremony--he provided the sound which worked out perfectly. He also graciously helped out the guitarist we hired. He was always on point with names and very classy with his announcements. He kept checking in with us during the evening to make sure our plans weren't changing, which was very kind and helpful. Thanks again for making our wedding amazing! More...

When we started wedding planning we had intended on playing all of our music by hooking up an iPod, but in efforts to ease some of the stress, we decided to hire a DJ instead. We are SO happy that we did. Jason at QMEP was amazing! We gave him a list of music that we wanted and from there he incorporated similar tunes to fill in the time. He did a great job of reading the crowd and keeping the day flowing. He even helped edit a song I love to walk down the aisle to!What Jason added to the wedding went above and beyond just having a DJ... He helped organize the timing of the ceremony, he kept the day running smoothly by announcing the first dance, bouquet toss, food, etc... he even brought us drinks. There is no way the wedding would have gone as well without him. Anyone who is questioning whether or not to have a DJ for their wedding (maybe to save some money), take it from me - QMEP is worth it! (And totally affordable) More...

I am so glad we chose Quantum to help us with our DJ, lighting, photobooth and day of coordinator for our wedding.  We picked them initially for their DJs and their great selection of photobooths and eventually added on the day of coordinator, I am SO glad we did.  Kit was an amazing coordinator and so helpful when I felt stressed out.  The whole team was very responsive to emails and helping ease our stress.  On the actual day of the wedding every one of their workers was so sweet and helpful.  The DJ read the room wonderfully and had us dancing all night.  The photobooth attendant was so nice, she helped make sure that my husband and I were able to take lots of fun pictures but still get out to the dance floor.  I highly recommend Quantum and any of the services they provide.

Once we spoke with Jason there was huge sense of relief. We used QPP for Day-of wedding coordination, our DJ and Lighting. When we first met with Jason we realized he was perfect for us. He helped us figure out the flow of our day and got us to think about details we wouldn't have on our own. Our wedding day was executed perfectly, and if there were any snags, we did not know about them! Perfect. If you're DIY'ing your own wedding planning I highly recommend using QPP for day-of... hand the execution over to the professionals and you'll enjoy your day so much more. More...

I rarely write reviews, but I know how helpful others' reviews were during my wedding planning experience so I wanted to help out as well. We hired Jason for DJing and lighting at our Brazilian Room wedding and he did a superb job. The whole process from getting initial quotes through planning out details and then the actual wedding went very smoothly. He was very responsive and helpful every step of the way.We used DJed music for the outdoor patio ceremony, then held the reception and dancing indoors. He and Kit, who was our Carrie Dove coordinator, helped cue the wedding party for the processional and it all went perfectly. We kept our wedding fairly simple and told Jason to just do basic MCing and to feel out the crowd in terms of music to play (we gave no guidance except no TSwift). All of his selections were well received and he even got the dancers back onto the dance floor near the end of the night by choosing the right song. All our guests had a blast and we were able to enjoy the night without any worries thanks to Jason and all our other vendors.I highly recommend Jason and his team for your DJ/lighting needs. Thank you so much, Jason, for helping to make our wedding perfect! More...

Not only was Jason impeccable in terms of following through on all the big and smalls details of our wedding, but he always did everything with a certain calmness and grace, which goes a long ways given the natural stresses that come with organizing a wedding. He was very easy to work with and flexible in terms of supporting our music choices and then filling in the gaps with music that matched our requested genres, styles, and personalities. Jason also introduced the entire wedding party into the reception exactly the way we had asked him to do so.

Kit was, once again, an incredible wedding planner!  She did an amazing job for my brother's wedding several years ago and she did a repeat-amazing job with our wedding recently.  We had a bit of a "fixer-upper" wedding venue where we wanted to put up a lot of our own decorations.  She went above and beyond to work with us and fulfill our more unique requests.  She was there helping us set up decorations the day before and she was the last to leave, cleaning up after the party after the event at midnight.  The thing that really set her apart for us was when we found out, just 2 days before our wedding, that it would rain on our wedding day.  We didn't have any tent at the time and she worked tirelessly to find a tent that would fit our reception dinner for a cheap price too!Thank you Kit!  We hope you the best as you continue to kick butt planning other people's weddings!

John and Jason were great to work with for our wedding as our music and lights. Carrie Dove Catering connected us with them, and the experience was awesome. Their wedding packet is straightforward, they answered all our questions and listened closely to our likes, dislikes, and general music style. John was the DJ day of and did a great job! He kept the energy up throughout and made changes right away when things came up. The music during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner was fantastic, and the pace of everything was well done. And the lighting both in the Brazilian Room and outside (twinkly lights) added to the space without detracting from it. A wonderful experience overall! More...

Not only did he help us keep our timeline when the officiant was a no-show, but he coordinated us getting down the isle, announced us, and was so professional throughout the entire night, working with all of the other vendors. He has the best photo booth available and the attendants were amazing as well and really helped our friends and family have a blast. The photo album at the end for us was such a nice touch.And of course... the music!! Jason was so on point! I don't think the dance-floor ever cleared out the whole night! Awesome job!

The music selection was perfect and Jason's mixing between songs was seamless. I don't think we've ever seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding! Many of our friends and family that we spoke with afterwards paid compliments to QMEP and said that the music was fantastic. We know this made the day even more fun for everyone; Jason nailed it!

Also, the photo booth was awesome and our guests had a great time with the props. The attendant was really nice and did a great job as well. QMEP even provided us copies of all the photos from the booth via Dropbox for us to enjoy after the wedding.

We highly recommend QMEP for their professionalism, experience in day of planning, and lighting techniques!

Our wedding was extremely fast-paced, and of course, everything didn't go according to the plan... our ceremony went longer than expected, guests lingered by the bar during transitions, speeches went long, you know, the usual. Jason didn't blink... he kept calm and stayed in contact with me and our coordinators and kept the whole show moving right along.

Jason, thanks for helping making our big day a very special one.

I found QME through my venue (Brazilian Room-the most amazing venue for 1/5 of the price of other venues in the area with less of an atmosphere).

I was very nervous planning everything from Chicago. I have been to weddings where the DJs were bad and it definitely affected the wedding reception negatively , but I pretty much had to put my trust in the Yelp reviews because I wasn't planning on making it out in time to test everything.

I cant begin to explain how fantastic Jason was! I realize this sounds cheesy but he knows how to read a room and play the perfect music. People keep commenting on how great the music was. We had a pretty shy group of people and I don't think that dance floor was empty once the entire night.

He played the perfect mix of today's hits (I keep having images of my elderly aunts and uncles dancing to Watch Me by Silento) and classic favorites (Shout and the Twist). We heard just about every type of music that night but the song choices were perfect for our group!

I highly recommend QME for DJ. We used them for up lighting as well-they were cheaper than the other rental company and Jason set it all up. He also played our ceremony music so I wouldn't have to pay $600 for a violinist. Everything was perfect and I couldn't recommend a more perfect DJ.

But the fact that everything was solved and I never had to worry about a single thing really shows they know how to do their jobs well. Jason was great and checked on me throughout the night to make sure everything was going smoothly for me, which I really appreciated. He also made sure all of our things like favors and centerpieces got wherever they needed to be and when people cleaned up at the end of the night it just magically disappeared, lol. I literally didn't have to worry about anything. I got a million compliments on how pretty everything looked and the awesome DJ and music and multiple people told me they had never had so much fun at a wedding. Definitely hire this company! :) More...

Jason was easy to work with even from out of town and always responded to my questions. It was clear that Jason knew what he was doing and provided very detailed information about how the venue worked, what to order, and day of details. We also hired a QMEP DJ (Michael Peterson) for the wedding. Our only complaint was that Michael played the wrong version of our first dance song, and forgot to switch the music for when the wedding party walked down the aisle. Michael kept the event running smoothly and definitely had everyone out dancing all night! The QMEP staff was INCREDIBLE!! They set up all the tables, chair, and decorations. I had crafted a lot and the staff worked hard to make sure my vision was well executed. The staff was attentive and very sweet! We loved working with QMEP and would highly recommend them for your next event! More...

Jason was fantastic. He was the DJ at our wedding this past weekend at the Marin Art and Garden Center and it was perfect. He was timely, he set up at the ceremony site and the reception site, the lights for the dance floor were gorgeous, he gave us a heads up as different parts of the timeline were coming up, and we got compliments on how good our music was. He also provided the photo booth and the guy running that, Dustin, was fabulous too. We completely filled the provided scrap book and Dustin generously offered to take home the extra pictures and add it to the scrap book- I can't wait to see the results. Jason was always very nice and professional and did exactly as we requested. Seriously, use Quantum Music Event Planners and you won't be disappointed. Highly, highly recommend. More...

I first used this company for my wedding in 2010, I found the staff to be  friendly, supportive, and exceptional in providing all my needs. I used them again for a party and I was not disappointed they did exceptionally well. People are still talking about my wedding and party and asking the referral information. If you need to throw a stellar event , then look no further this company can do the job. More...

Let me start off by saying I went to a wedding that was DJ'ed by Jason and he was amazing. Great at reading the crowd and thoroughly enjoyed his music. Working and planning with Jason was incredibly easy....very easy to get along with and very helpful with choices on music and lightening. The plan was for Jason to be the DJ for our wedding. Unfortunately, Jason was unable to make our wedding and had to have another DJ fill in...as expected I was disappointed in this decision as we were not made aware of the change. The fill in DJ did a great job and played great music and the night was awesome. When I emailed Jason a few days after the wedding regarding the disappointment that he was not the DJ. Jason was so professional and very apologetic; he was very informative on the issue that arised that day. Overall, I would definitely work with Jason again. More...

We hired Jason to DJ our wedding at the Brazil Room, and he was absolutely fantastic! He did a great job reading the crowd, keeping the flow moving and folks on the dance floor. Jason is always cheerful and calm, and you can tell he really enjoys what he does. He had people boogying down that are normally too shy to dance. Everyone had a blast, and we're still receiving tons of compliments on it. It was also a huge relief to just let Jason do his thing so that I could worry about other things. More...

I cannot recommend Jason as a DJ enough. I planned most of my wedding on my own, so my vendors were pretty important.


Things I loved about Jason:

1. He was very relaxed and totally knew what he was doing, esp at the Brazilian Room, the venue where the wedding was. He gave my officiant a lapel mic and set up a mic for readers. He had a wireless mic for speeches.
2. Meeting with him before the wedding was really helpful because he gave me piece of mind about the order of events.
3. He played music that I liked (hip hop) and music that older guests liked too. He did it in a way that everyone felt like they got what they wanted.
4. On the day of, we were sort of a little stressed about the procession, so he helped organize that.
5. He helped with the flow of events by making quick announcements: cake cutting, dancing, dinner, last song, etc. This made guests feel at ease.
6. The market lights looked great.

I got a ton of compliments on Jason's work and I'd definitely recommend him for Bay Area weddings or other events.

Musical Heart Strings has had the pleasure to work with Jason of QMEP on two occasions. Each time he was professional, courteous, and attentive. He was right on que for the music, and his sound system is wonderful. He was also very vigilant checking the sound system to make sure the speakers were working properly throughout the course of the evening. We have worked with DJ's where there were complications with the mics during the ceremony. That is not the case with Jason at the helm. He is a true professional. More...

My husband and I got married last November at the Brazil Room in Tilden Park and we hired Jason Shires to DJ our wedding.  QMEP has special rates with the Brazil room, so we got an amazing deal for uplighting, dance/party lighting, ceremony mics and speakers, inside speakers, etc. (way less expensive than other DJs).  We met Jason twice in person before the wedding - once as part of our interview process and the second time to finalize music, flow of the event, play and no-plays lists, and so on.  Jason had great advice and was able to help us create the perfect wedding.  On the day of the event, Jason was fully set up, dressed up, and prepared for the evening to start.  Jason went out of his way to be helpful - he caught me transferring items from an outdoor table to an inside table and he rushed over to help.  We even threw a hardball at Jason when I was surprised with a bonus speech and toast video from my sister who was pregnant and put on bed rest 2 days before my wedding.  Jason helped my best friend connect to the shoddy wifi, transfer the video file onto his computer, and magically get it to play on the projector during dinner (this was all a complete surprise for me).  According to my best friend, this was a disaster in the making, but somehow she and Jason pulled it off flawlessly.We gave Jason a pretty detailed play and no play list, and he totally rocked it.  We literally danced non-stop for 4 solid hours - all of our guests had a blast as did we.  When the night was over, Jason helped corral our champagne-spraying guests out of the door in a semi-orderly fashion and couldn't have been more great.I would recommend Jason to any and everyone looking for a DJ for their wedding!  He truly made our wedding the best night of our lives and we couldn't be happier. Thank you, Jason! More...

QMEP was wonderful. I ended up doing a package with the photobooth (which was a hit in its own right. EVERYONE loved it and the people that hosted the booth were so friendly and fun. You ABSOLUTELY need to get the photo booth through QMEP. Such a great addition that really broke the ice for everyone) and the column lighting which added beautiful dramatic flair. The DJ was a great emcee and friendly. My only... concern, was that as the bride, I was quite anxious with the inability to get a hold of Jason (owner) on the phone or via email. He has one of those voicemails that always answers and an email that sends an auto reply, however about a week out from our wedding I had called/emailed 3-5 times with no reply for days! Quite unnerving. I really wanted price quotes on the lighting to make a decision, to be sure he got my processional/first dance songs, and make the final payment so that I did not have to worry about it on the day of. It eventually all worked out and he was wonderfully friendly, I just wish replies would have been more prompt. More...

We booked Jason for our Aug. 2nd wedding after meeting with him and then realizing that he had also DJed for our friends' wedding in Berkeley. We really appreciated the detailed packet he had us fill out before the wedding, it was nice to know that he had all of the music details we wanted figured out beforehand. He handled the ceremony music perfectly, and did a great job at the reception picking songs and taking requests (including the surprise hit Getting Jiggy with It). He also helped keep us on our timeline throughout the day, which was a huge help. More...

Jason DJ'ed my wedding at the Brazilian Room, and did a fantastic job. We actually weren't sure if we wanted a DJ at all, but after talking to Jason we realized what a DJ really could bring to our wedding. We were a little concerned about our wedding party because we had quite a few guests come in from China, but Jason had an excellent selection of music that they were happy with too! We changed our schedule about 100 times before the wedding, and Jason was flexible with it as the day went on.All in all it was great, I feel like the music always matched what we wanted and he did an excellent job of coordinating everyone. Our dance floor music went great, I was actually surprised that we had so many people dancing! More...

We saw Jason at two different weddings. My husband and I were not engaged yet but we knew when it was time we would want Jason as our DJ. Finally the time came and the first vendor we called was him! We were so happy he was available. Jason provided our ceremony and reception music, our lights, and the photobooth! Jason was very easy to get a hold of by email.He is very laidback and was helpful when I had no idea how many lights we would need. Jason and his attendee were very professional and helpful on the night of our wedding. We loved dancing with all our guests on the dance floor! We also found out that night that my cousin used him in his wedding 5 years ago! Everything ran smoothly and now my brother is interested in using him for his wedding next year! More...

QMEP was AMAZING. I got married at Ardenwood Historic Farm in late April. From the get go, customer service was above par. The only downside was they took a little while to take my deposit (as a bride, I'm closely watching every available dollar). But other than that I have no complaints.When I first met Jason, (he wasn't the first rep I had dealt with there), he was so friendly, and so happy and willing to make our day wonderful. He automatically made me feel at ease. I had a whole list of questions I had ready to ask him, (I'm a bit of a control freak), but he asked me and got my input before I even got a chance. Some people fake wanting to be helpful, but he honestly made me feel like, he would not want anything else but to make sure this day went without a hitch.He and his staff were super friendly, engaging, and very patient with us (Even when a few of my friends showed up the rehearsal a bit tipsy). He made notes on EVERYTHING and was well organized. I am so very happy I chose Ardenwood, and that Ardenwood came with QMEP and Jason. I would recommend their services to any brides out there!

Absolutely beautiful place for our wedding ceremony among trees and a Gazebo with a historic house back drop. Jason deals with all weddings at the Patterson House Lawn in Ardenwood Park (officially under the business Quality Event Planners jason@qmeplanners.com). Hard to get a hold of him on the phone many times but always willing to answer questions and help, really kind and quite flexible. We loved our wedding there! More...

Jason DJ'd our wedding and did such a great job! Our ceremony was wonderfully mic'd, followed by some fantastic music throughout our reception. We'd forgotten to give him a collection of songs to be played during dinner but he managed to queue them up, seamlessly, without anyone but my wife and I noticing!After dinner the dance floor was packed with so many of our guests having a fantastic time! Jason's tunes were a fun mix of new and old with some special requests mixed in. It was so much fun seeing the dance floor suddenly shift into the fandango!I would highly recommend QMEP and working with Jason agan. More...

We had Jason DJ and MC our wedding. He was fantastic. He was organized, efficient and he had all the equipment on hand.

As an MC, he was fantastic. His tact and control of the crowd was amazing, knowing how to tactfully encourage people to move on when they dragged yet encouraging people to speak when need be.

As a DJ, he knew what music to play at just the right time. I had more than a few people ask if we picked the music for them.

At the end of the day, I would hire him again, without hesitation. I would recommend him to any friend, without hesitation. Best yet, I know it would work out perfectly.

Many thanks to Jason for coordinating the lighting, sound and DJ for our wedding. It was very clear from the first time we met Jason that he wants you to be happy and will give you his honest recommendations, many of which ended up saving us money when he could have easily been upselling us. Very much appreciated when you're dropping money left and right on the big day. The lighting was subtle and elegant, exactly what we wanted and the DJ followed our specific song list and was very patient and tolerant of our flower girls who wanted desperately to take over spinning duties. He was gracious enough to give them headphones and the mic (volume turned down) so they felt like they were DJs for the night for a little while. Thank you again! More...

I recently hired QMEP for a wedding in San Francisco and was very pleased with how everything turned out. We used Kit Shires as a day of coordinator and Jason Shires as the DJ.Kit Shires:Kit is amazing! Keep in mind that Jason and Kit are extremely busy, so if you need a lot of attention, they may not be for you.Kit is outstanding. She managed to pull everything together day of. During the planning phase, we chatted over the phone a handful of times and we even met in person.Kit was very accommodating. She really made me feel like it was my special day and that if i asked, she could help me out with anything. If you are a bride that knows what you want, Kit is great at execution. She stays calm and friendly with everyone. She will make great suggestions but will not tell you how to do things.Kit organized the wedding party, gave everyone their que's for announcements, helped organize the speeches, etc. She went above and beyond what I expected and was even helping serve champagne to our guests. She is very attentive via phone and in person really helped day of. She puts out fires and makes it look easy.Jason Shires:Jason is a very busy DJ. Jason is good if you want to hire someone with wedding experience. Again, if you are high maintenance Jason may not be the DJ for you as he is very busy.Jason managed to play all the requested songs at the right times and kept everyone dancing. He also was good with figuring out pronunciation of everyone's name and did announcements without a flaw. We did have a video to be played and there were a couple hiccups. The video began playing at a really low volume so not everyone could hear and it was not played in full screen, but those are minor complaints and did not affect the night in a huge way. More...

QMEP is the on-site vendor for Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont and booking this venue gets you a wedding planner--Natalie! She is AMAZING and so thoughtful, kind, thorough and on-top-of-it! She was absolutely wonderful and our day would not have been so wonderful without her. We also used Jason W. from QMEP as our DJ. He was also wonderful--played everything we wanted, listened to and read the crowd and made the reception SO FUN!!! Everyone told me how great he was. The owner, Jason, is also so wonderful to work with. I really only have fantastic things to say about everything at QMEP!!! They really, really, really made our day special and helped it to run so smoothly. I don't know what we would have done without them!! Thank you QMEP!!! More...

I cannot recommend Jason Shires and QMEP highly enough. He did an absolutely stupendous job at our wedding reception. He nailed the musical vibe that we were looking for throughout the various parts of the reception: cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. And he did so with minimal instruction; he just knew exactly what to do!

He also was perfect as the emcee and knew exactly how to speak and when to speak. He read the crowd like an expert, graciously took requests from our guests, and even adjusted on the fly to unscheduled toasts and impromptu singing from some of the guests in attendance.

Jason was a breeze to work with before, during, and after the reception. I offer him and QMEP my highest recommendation.

Found QMEP through searches for a DJ that can play English, Chinese and Indian music. We did experience some confusion with Jason when scheduling our first meeting. We did not receive a re-confirmation of the meeting and I did call/email him a few times the day before and day of and didn't hear back.Decided to give it another go because his email apology was sincere and subsequent email responses were quick. After meeting Jason, my fiance and I liked his vibe, music selection (in all 3 languages) and that he was able to show us lighting and equipment samples all set up at their Martinez office. Jason came out to San Francisco for a venue walk through, offered suggestions on how to make the multi-room space work within how much equipment we wanted.Day of the wedding, Jason and his assistant showed up on time and well dressed =) We had abit of mic issue during the ceremony but figured it out, not a big issue. Jason played the music we wanted and got people dancing as much as they would (it was a Sunday wedding with people having to work the next day!). All in all, a great experience. More...

We hired Jason from Quantum after several vendors recommended him and after we learned that he did a special pricing for the Brazilian room in Tilden Park. He has loads of experience, was easy to talk to, flexible with any changes, and very pleasant to work with. He seemed to have a lot of experience and the entire day went off well, DJ wise.

Unfortunately, I have to say that though he was pretty responsive to my husband and I, he wasn't as responsive to my day of coordinator and this made me nervous. Thankfully, towards the end, he seemed to communicate with her more, but learning that "every vendor but your DJ has gotten back to me" kind of stressed me out. I figure it was wedding season and I know he was busy, but I was very nervous about that.

Great pricing for the Brazilian Room though!

Quantum was our DJ and also gave us wedding coordinator services for our recent wedding at the Brazilian Room. They were great! Jason is a super friendly, charming DJ who can hold down the dance floor for all ages - proven by me dancing with my 70 year old Uncle to "It Takes Two To Make A Thing Go Right." Kit and Alecia were our wedding coordinators and they were uber-helpful and nice, able to answer all questions and put out any fires at a rapid rate!Quantum also provided the lighting, which matched our colors and really made the venue that much more beautiful.I would highly recommend them to anyone!

This review is a few months over due but not forgotten. We hired Kit to DJ our wedding after being recommended to us by two of our friends. She was amazing! I cannot say enough about how much she added to our special day. We did all of the planning of our wedding ourselves and Kit gave us a ton of pointers as well as organized and flowed the entire night flawlessly. Her suggestions were exactly what we needed and made the night perfect. She reorganized our speeches (we had 9 of them) as to not bore the crowd and knew how to highlight the most important speeches.We got several compliments on her selection of music, she knew how to feel out the crowd and the dance floor was never empty. She even suggested we ended the night on a different song due to the energy of the crowd. She was responsive and easy to get ahold of the weeks before the wedding and was super easy to talk to on the phone. We chatted for an hour on our initial call! I cannot thank Kit enough for making our Santa Cruz wedding so special, it truly would not have been the same with out her. And having a chick DJ was super cool too :) Worth EVERY penny we spent!

Jason Shires is the man when it comes to DJ'ing and making sure the wedding is flowing smoothly.  He has a great selection of music; every time I asked him to play a song, he he had it ready and mixed it will.  He was able to cover requests from sinatra, beatles, carpenters, to current music, top 40, and Gunham Style (korean Pop).  I've seen Dj's that just play one type of music and they do not know how to read the crowd.  Jason ensures the crowd is having fun and keeps a great steady stream of good party music for all ages.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this great service of music for weddings and other parties.

I can't even begin to explain how awesome Jason is. He did magic at our wedding. We met once and then discussed the rest over email. We gave him a few important songs (first dance, wedding march) and he literally did the rest. He had people crying at the ceremony, laughing at silly games, and dancing all night at the reception!  The wedding was a little confusing with indoor and outdoor locations, rain, and a bartender running late but he kept the crowd happy and flowing. We couldn't have asked for more. I have NEVER been at an event with a dj as awesome as Jason. He was outstanding!!! More...

Quantum music did an outstanding job at our wedding reception. We chose Jason as our DJ. The thing about Jason is that, not only is he a great DJ; he is also a great MC. A lot of the time, that is hard to find. Jason was very professional, and took time to ask us exactly what we wanted and what our music vision was for our reception. We also purchased up lighting from Quantum and he was very patient in finding the color of lighting I want for our reception. He does not try to sell you extra stuff. He is very honest and recommends services appropriately. We were not sure we needed an extra hour of music because we didn’t know how long the crowd will dance. Jason recommended that we don’t sign up for an extra hour based on the experience he had at receptions. He was also good at recommending what are appropriate times for events such as toasting, cake cutting, bouquet and grater toss, etc. . . . He also did some wedding games such as the signing game and game for winning the center piece. He even did the shoe game to stall for us when I forgot that I didn’t wear the garter and someone had to run to my hotel room to get it. Our guest loved the games and they had fun with it. Jason played all the music we wanted and some from the online request from guests based on our preferences. Jason adapted really well to the crowd. My husband is really into different kind of music and Jason was able to play the songs he wanted at the right moments. I was teasing and told my husband that he was bromancing with Jason, because he loved all the songs Jason played. More...

Jason was the DJ at our wedding at the Brazil Room and he is great! He saved the day twice by setting up two microphones for the ceremony and finding an impromptu scrapbook (which I forgot) to use for the photo strips from the photobooth. Music for the ceremony and reception were exactly what we asked for. His emceeing skills are awesome and he was a big help when trying to figure out the finicky projector and computer setup for our slideshow.

We used the open air photobooth and set it up outside on the Brazil Room patio. This was the first time it was setup outside and it turned out great. They also provided hats and other props which the guests loved.

We were on a budget and found the price very reasonable for the DJ services and the photobooth. Jason is great to work with and is very responsive with emails. We only met the day of the wedding and there were no problems at all!

Jason DJ'ed our July 2012 wedding at the Brazilian Room in Berkeley, CA!Right from the start, Jason was incredibly responsive to emails and made our phone consultations totally stress-free.Our ceremony had number of songs for Jason to juggle, he executed the whole thing flawlessly!Jason was a fantastic MC and read the crowd very well! He did a fantastic job getting all the guests to move from one event to another based on our timeline. He introduced each toast-giver and generally just had perfect rapport with the crowd!Our reception was full of dancing, laughter, and was very high energy! Much of that we owe to Jason!At one point our caterer called a meeting with her staff and I turned around to see Jason filling guests drinks! It's just a testament to how wonderful he was with our guests!Overall, we would absolutely recommend and rehire Jason!Thank you! More...

This is hands down the best DJ and event planning service in the Bay Area!  I have had more than one experience with Quantum and they've all been nothing short of amazing.I have worked mostly with events DJ'd by Jason and there was never a dull moment. Jason really knows how to get the party started and get people moving and he does this without being a crazy obnoxious DJ.  The transitions from song to song are flawless.  Last summer I went to a wedding that Kit from Quantum was the DJ and she was great with the wedding.  She was doing far more than you would expect from the DJ to do.  She also had music going during the ceremony and at one point was helping get the wedding started.  They always provide quality service during the event, and before during the planning process also. Jason's work ethic was really phenomenal. Jason goes above and beyond to ensure that all people in attendance would have a wonderful time!!  5 stars for this wonderful company hands down. More...

Jason did a great job as our DJ. Many guests came up to tell us it was the best wedding music they had ever heard! The lighting made the room, the photobooth was fun for all and Jason kept the pace of the evening moving for us by coordinating with the caterer and us. I'd highly recommend QMEP to any bride to be!

Quantum Music Event Planners is simply a cut above the rest! Jason, Kit and their staff are absolutley amazing! From planning the event through the day of our event, QMEP were there for us every step of the way. If I had a concern or a special need, they were on top of it and very responsive. This company is very well managed and they care. You can tell that they love what they do and it shows in every way. I am so glad that QMEP were a big part of our event. The party-goers loved the fabulous mucic, the lighting and the PowerPoint presentation! QMEV made all this happen with ease and were just great work with. Many thanks and kudos to Jason, Kit, your DJ and other Jason, and all your staff for making magic happen at our event!

Its been 3 months since our wedding and we are still receiving feedback from our friends and family that it was one of the best weddings they have been too. I have to credit much of the success to Kit. Kit made the night flow so that we could just enjoy ourselves. She met with us ahead of time and talked to us about how we wanted the evening to flow and then on the night of she made sure we transitioned to dinner, cutting the cake and throwing the bouquet, etc so we didn't have to worry about it. Kit is a true professional and she far exceeded my expectations of a DJ. She also did an amazing job of choosing the music to keep everyone on the dance floor. We even extended the music because so many people were still dancing. We also loved the lighting that they provided. We had an outdoor reception in an olive grove so we had twinkle lights and uplighting in the trees and market lights on the dance floor. Kit and Jason helped us determine what lighting would be best and it was beautiful. The photo booth they provided was a huge hit with our guests. They also provided funny hats, sunglasses and other props so our friends and family had a great time taking pictures. We provided a scrapbook for them to leave a copy of the photos and a message. I think this was our best splurge because the scrapbook is my favorite keepsake from the wedding. More...

Professionalism and service were high on our priority list when searching for vendors for our wedding.  Quantum was the most professional DJ Company that we met with.  We were referred to Quantum by our caterer Matt at Serves You Right Catering when we were at our tasting at The Brazilian Room.  SYR said Quantum was a great company that offered high-quality and still high-value services.  And they were right!Jason the owner came to play our wedding, and working with Serves You Rights event coordinator Marcie and they both did an awesome job working together! It was nice to see the 2 of them interacting about the event.  You could really tell they both enjoy and love what they do.  And when your 2 key vendors are having a good time it is very important as they set the tone for the whole event.  Friends kept telling us that not only was the food the best at any wedding they had been to but we also had the best DJ.  Luckily Jason was in our age bracket so he definitely seemed to know the music we liked.  I do believe that Jason is knowledgeable enough that he would be able to play for any age group.  One of my big worries was not having anyone out on the dance floor, but with the music selection that we made, combined with Jason's selections, the dance floor was the place to be.

Kit and Jason at QMEP are positively wonderful! My husband and I had been referred to them by a family member, and I'm thrilled we were, because I wouldn't have wanted another DJ. Jason was our DJ at our wedding, and he was extremely professional. He made sure his two set-ups were ready to go ahead of schedule, he dressed according to our expectations of what guests would wear, he worked wonderfully with our caterer on timing throughout the evening, and maintained an awesome selection of songs by reading the crowd! I suggest going to their office in Martinez if you can, as they have lighting and other options available to make your day perfect. More...

Jason is awesome. Hire him as your DJ immediately.For our recent wedding, we first considered using the iPod DJ system, until I realized that without a day-of planner, we needed someone with a microphone to keep things moving. Therefore, one more annoying wedding chore- finding another vendor. I interviewed a few very cheesy DJs in the Bay Area and elsewhere, ones who suggested All the Single Ladies for the bouquet toss and The Way You Look Tonight for the first dance. Old men who would "show" me how they would announce me and my new husband- as "Mr. and Mrs. His First Name and you have no part in this."Not my style. Then I interviewed Jason. He is young enough to get music but still manages to give off the immediate impression that he has his stuff together. He is organized, runs his business and I would have trusted this guy with organizing our entire wedding.He gave us a great price, played the right music, and kept our running-behind wedding on track to get us out the door at the end of the night. He even managed to get most people on the dance floor at one time or another- not an easy project when your guest age spread is 4 months- 85 years. Now I'm sure if you want the aforementioned cheesy music selections, Jason will agree without making you feel stupid. Either way, he did a perfect job, and for any bride out there- you know how difficult it is to plan a wedding, look for vendors, compare prices. I'll save you the work- hire Jason as your DJ and move on. There are plenty of decisions to second guess with a wedding- this is not one of them. Thanks Jason!Ashley More...

I don't know what I would have done without Kit.  I probably would have pulled all my hair out trying to plan so many different aspects of my wedding.  I love a one stop shop, and when it comes to event planning these guys are some of the best.  Kit was very detail oriented and patient with me.  I had sooo many ideas, samples, pictures, diy projects i was working on, and all kinds of stuff.  She would make visual and graphic examples of things for me to see how things would come together because she obviously saw that I was a very visual learner.  We exchanged hundreds of emails, she met me at my house a few times, i went to the Quantum offices a few times, and in the end things turned out fabulous!  The event planning prices were MORE than affordable compared to some of the other companies I had priced out, plus Quantum had a great reputation and examples of the quality services they were offering (not just another weekend side project for someone).  Kit had access to numerous linen companies for rentals, also she gave me great references and ideas on affordable decorations like bright paper lanterns and ideas for favors.  I honestly don't think I wanted to stop working with them, but then the big day came and I ran out of $$$  :)  They did pipe and draping behind my bridal table at the Brazillian Room in Tilden park, lovely fuchsia uplighting all around the room, iridescent crushed taffeta table cloths, satin chair covers, and put together all the other components of the room in a spectacular way.  Everything went seamless the day of the wedding!  The music and decorations kept me in a whimsical state for the day, and my guests must have felt the same way because I only saw smiles on everyones faces.  Jason is a great DJ!  Anyone can just play music, but only a true professional and talented DJ can keep a party going like Jason can.  He would chime in at all the right times to sing a line of a song, or deliver a message to someone, or cut off someones drunken wedding rant  :/  lol. This team together Kit and Jason, are unstoppable, I wish them the best of success forever.   I'm so glad I found these guys.  I actually can't wait until I can have another celebration to hire them again to make my vision a reality.Kit and Jason also did me a huge favor that I was unaware of.  I had bought over $500 worth of beautiful Manzanita trees with orchids tucked in them and my bridal party along with myself sufficiently intoxicated by the end of the night and left them along with my metal arbor all in the parking lot of the Brazillian Room.  When Jason saw them, he loaded them in his van for me and stored them in their warehouse.  I didn't have a chance to pick them up until after my honeymoon.  Yet again, they happily accommodated my forgetfulness.

Long story short, QMEP was put in charge of coordinating weddings at Ardenwood where my husband and I got married this June so we didn't technically hire them.  Upon meeting Jason and Kit we really liked them.  They were organized, friendly, and professional.  We had fairly limited contact with them until a couple of weeks before the wedding when we started getting all of the details set in place.  As great as Kit and Jason are, I was a little upset and frustrated at how the week before my wedding was handled.  I'll Explain:Ardenwood is a completely outdoor venue.  Being that our wedding was in June, my husband, our families, and I did not think we would be dealing with weather issues.  We were wrong.  The Monday before the wedding (which happened to be Memorial Day) rain was in the forecast and it wasn't going away.  My biggest frustration was that Kit and Jason didn't contact us before the holiday weekend to try and get a Plan B in place.  We could all see it might rain and, considering they were the event planners, I considered it their job to contact me about the back up plan.  Come Tuesday, panic was setting in and my mom and dad started making phone calls trying to figure out where we could get a tent on such short notice.  We called both Kit and Jason and did not hear from them until my caterer of all people called them and got a hold of them, telling them how freaked out we were about the weather.  I then received a phone call from Jason saying they had it all under control and were currently with the Ardenwood people trying to figure out the Plan B and to let my mom and dad know to stop calling around.  It was after 12p and we had been calling around since 8am.  I understand that they may have been busy trying to get some stuff settled for me but after receiving a phone call from a panicing mother of the bride AND a stressed bride you would think someone would call to calm them down and let them know it was being handled.There were plenty of other glitches that happened along the way that I feel could have been handled a little differently but I also feel it necessary to give them some slack considering this was their first ever wedding at Ardenwood.  They were new to the venue, the weather was not cooporating, and they did their best trying to help us figure it out.  They were even up in to the wee hours of the morning trying to help us figure out how our large wedding would fit in to a not so large tent (it worked...luckily).The wedding day ran absolutely smoothly.  Both Jason and Kit were around to do everything that was needed and it, with the cards we were all delt, could not have gone better!Overall, Kit and Jason are great people who got the job done I just felt the communication could have been a little better.I would recommend them considering I think had they known the venue and what they were working with a little better (which only experience can give them) they would have done everything perfectly and received all of my praise.

My wedding was back in August of 2009 but I felt compelled to write a review almost two years later.  I vividly recall Jason showing up at our house for a presentation dressed very professionally.  His mannerism is calming and you feel like he's knowledgeable and in control of the situation.  Since I'm writing this review two years later I don't recall all the details, however, I know that Jason brought his own equipment for both the ceremony and reception.  His price was more than reasonable given I was just laid off from my job two months prior and had no income but that's another story.Jason announced us and our bridal party in a professional way and he was always on top of things.  He remembered my special song requests and when we said we wanted a certain genre during dinner and a different genre during dancing Jason understood and did a great job.I'm the first of thirteen cousins to be married and would recommend Jason to each and every one of them.

What can we say, we LOVE Jason! He did an amazing job for our April 2010 wedding at the Brazilian Room and kept up with our crowd all night. He has extensive experience with the Brazilian Room and does a ton of weddings there, so is also invaluable for wedding planning advice. Jason is also amazingly passionate about what he does and very committed to great service. The first time we got in contact with Jason, he offered to drive to us from Eastbay to where we live at downtown SF for a meeting. When is the last time you've heard of a prospective DJ going out of his way to come to you?! :) Unfortunately that day, Jason got stuck traffic the day that the truck flipped over on the S-curve, and had to wade through that traffic to get to us. When he arrived, despite his crazy evening -- he rolled with it, and gave us a very professional presentation with a great attitude, and in that meeting was one of the most well organized and helpful people we met with during our wedding planning process. This was really a testament to his professionalism and ability to perform even in difficult situations, and it was a no-brainer to hire him after our meeting. Throughout the process he was really helpful with advice on how to structure our wedding day and sent us custom wedding sampler CDs to help us choose our music.He was fantastic at our wedding and reception. Many of our guests commented that the music selections were great. We asked him to read the crowd and play what he thought they'd like, and he had people dancing all night! We had a Chinese and Indian wedding and he was familiar with and did a great job with playing ethnic music. The other thing which he made pain-free and easy was coordinating the Western wedding ceremony. After we got our processional lined up, he was extremely helpful by signaling when each person should walk down the aisle and telling everyone what to do. He was practically our behind the scenes coordinator at the wedding, and was always checking in to see where he could help and making sure everything stayed on schedule. You can tell from working with Jason that he takes his work seriously and loves doing it, and was happy to go above and beyond to make sure it's a wonderful day for us. More...

Jason and Kit are seriously the dream team. We got married on July 2nd, 2011 at the Berkeley City Club, with Jason as our DJ and Kit as our day-of-coordinator. They were absolutely instrumental in making the event a tremendous success.As a DJ, Jason is just terrific. He was able to read the crowd perfectly, he incorporated our requests (ranging from Hindi film and bhangra to Motown to pop to the Hava Nagila), and he also knew when to diverge from our requests in the BEST ways. Jason was also terrific on the microphone. He pronounced all our complicated Indian names perfectly, said just the right amount during the dancing, kept the evening flowing smoothly, and just looked so awesome up there, too! He has a great voice, personality, and attitude. We are so very grateful to him for giving us a rocking party--from the first song to the last, the floor was full. I just wish we could have given Jason another hour to work it.And I cannot begin to say enough about Kit. She came in as our day-of-coordinator in the last few weeks of planning, and she developed our floor plan and detailed timeline for the day of the wedding/reception. Kit is warm and kind and fun to work with--and then on the day of, she was just so TOTALLY on top of everything. Many of our vendors thanked us specifically for bringing Kit on board--they all enjoyed working with her. We could not have done the wedding without Kit. She is organized, efficient, and so smart, and somehow manages to seem totally relaxed at the same time!Thanks to both of you for all your support leading up to the event, thanks for rolling with the punches on the day of, and thanks for giving us a day to remember.

We had Jason as our wedding DJ this last weekend (July 4th weekend).  We ultimately chose him because he was responsive (he actually replied to emails and answered his phone, unlike some DJs we contacted), seemed to "get" the type and style of DJ services we wanted (in other words, we didn't get the impression that we was just like, "Yeah yeah yeah, I'm just going to play my music and do my thing and get paid and ignore the fact that you don't want me on the mic a whole bunch or don't want "Shout" played, etc"), and he had a good deal going through Yelp (so his pricing was definitely quite competitive).The evening of the wedding, he showed up when he said he was, got the mic and auxiliary speakers set up for the best man/maid of honor toasts without a hitch, and did an excellent job of incorporating many of our music requests into his usual mix.  He did everything we wanted him to and nothing that we asked him not to do.  Everyone had a great time dancing.  Enough said.Would definitely recommend taking a close look at Jason and QMEP if you're in need of a DJ.

We are very happy that Kit was our wedding DJ. We met before the wedding to work out the musical logistics. Since she is also a coordinator, she is exceptionally thorough and on top of her stuff. The day of the wedding, Kit and her assistant(s?) set up in the amphitheater behind the community hall for the ceremony as well as in the hall/courtyard for cocktail hour and dinner/dancing. My one complaint about the amphitheater is that I could hardly hear the music--I do wonder, however, if this is because Kit put the speakers in places where they wouldn't be heavily photographed (if so, good thinking!). Music for the cocktail hour and dinner was very appropriate and fun. We had an upbeat group and Kit kept everyone on the dance floor though the last dance! She did a great job honoring our "must plays," reading the crowd, and helping us throw a great party. More...

We had Quantum Music Event Planners do the lighting for our wedding reception. (I wish I also used their DJ services, sigh, that's another story)I have given Jason and his staff at Quantum Music Even Planner five stars for the following: 1. They rocked out the lights! The lighting at our wedding looked AWESOME! It enhanced the venue and set a perfect romantic ambiance. 2. Customer Service: Jason was great at returning phone calls, emails and assisting in technical difficulties. When we arrived at our venue a string of lights went out. Instead of troubleshooting the problem, I called Jason, and he came by our event and instantly fixed the problem. Turns out another vendor had disconnected the plug. 3. PRICE! His prices were unbeatable. And he also offered a military discount, which makes me happy. ---- I had called several other vendors over the phone. The first vendor claimed that in order for him to come out to our site to simply string lights he had to charge us over a $1,100 dollars. He further claimed that no one could beat the price. haha, liar! Other vendors were falling in that price range. I called Jason, and his cost less than half of that --- all of his lighting was relatively cheaper compared to other vendors. (It's really upsetting when vendors really try to capitalize on your wedding day). 4. Jason is awesome. More...

Really, no words can describe how much we love Kit and Jason at Quantum Music. My fiance first met with Kit when we were looking at DJs for our April 30th wedding. We loved how down to earth and normal they were compared to the other HUGE DJ showcase we had just gone to, and got a great vibe. We booked them as our DJ, and ended up booking Kit as our day of coordinator, as well as having Jason and Kit add lighting for our reception as well. Every single part of it was perfect, and our wedding truly wouldnt have been the same without them.

Jason ended up being our DJ, and provided music for both the ceremony and reception. It was all flawless, and we got so many compliments on the music choices. They listened to what we said, and his choices were perfect. Jason is SO friendly, and after the first meeting we felt like talking to him was talking to an old friend.

Kit was out of control amazing as our day of coordinator. She provided some much needed support and assistance with all the small details of the day. We cant imagine what we would have done with out her. She truly went above and beyond on her duties, and put in so much time and energy. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her prices are so reasonable, and she helped greatly diminish the stress of the day. We had so many small details of the wedding, and she did them flawlessly.

Jason also helped us with lighting design for our reception venue. It was a fairly normal room, and we really wanted it to feel rustic, almost barn like. Jason and Kit knew we were working on a fairly tight budget, and they did so much for us. It looked better than we could have imagined. Jason worked closely with our reception site, and strung up gorgeous market lights and up lights to really give a great vibe to the reception.

Everything about Quantum is great- you will not regret it if you go with them! They provide outstanding customer service and really seem to care about you as a person!

What?! I haven't written a review about these guys yet? Back in November, I got to work with QMEP for the Yelp Helps event.These folks came through big time. They took so much of the stress off my shoulders and helped me find the best deals for tables, linens, disposables and even a red carpet. Kit and Jason rolled up their sleeves at the event too. While I was busy running around, directing vendors to their tables, Jason and Kit took it upon themselves to get lighting, sound and tables set up. To work with direction is one thing, but to instinctively know what goes where and how to piece the puzzle together is another.Before the event, Jason and Kit replied to emails in rapid speed and nearly every phone call had them on the other line. I've worked with a number of event companies and what I appreciate most about Jason and Kit is their easy breezy nature. Always cool and calm, these two make event planning look like a breeze. Jason and Kit seamlessly shifted between working with a high sense of urgency to making it completely stress and hassle free for me. It ain't a Yelp party unless, QMEP is in the mix. Even if they're not DJing, they're always helpful with lighting, sound, photo and even event rentals. They're downright indispensable at this point. More...

I hired QMEP for lighting at my wedding in April of 2011.  I hired them last minute, with three weeks before the wedding.  They were not annoyed at me for this at all. They were calm and helped me narrow down lighting choices that would be useful and  fell within my budget.  For less than $400, my venue was bathed in the warm tropical light i wanted for my reception.  The lights were set up early, neatly and elegantly, without a chord to trip over in sight.  They followed my specific instructions to light my cake table, and uplight a stone wall and palm plants.  My wedding photos have added depth to them as a result and I have received nothing but compliments about how elegant the venue looked.  Thanks Kit and Jason!!  :)  I can only imagine how good their dj's must be, if they all work with this level of understanding and passion.  They got my vision!!

We hired Jason as a DJ for our wedding, and I don't think we could have found anyone better. He's not just a DJ extraordinaire, but a mind reader and total crowd pleaser as well. He was consistently enthusiastic about working with us, and even though we really only met with him a handful of times, we felt like he was a part of the family! Jason is professional, courteous, fun, and easy-going and I would recommend him to anyone. My husband is from West Africa and wanted to hear some of his favorite African tunes at the reception. Jason helped him to transfer his music and then he listened to all of it and skillfully wove the African songs into the rest of his playlist. On top of that, he managed to play all of my favorite songs, emcee the event, set up equipment for our friends who played music, and set up the equipment for my husband to play his traditional African xylophone. He truly went above and beyond to make our big night perfect. More...

I hired Quantum Music to DJ my son's 18th Birthday Party in November 2010.  I could not have been more pleased with the services or customer service I received from both Jason and Kit.  The DJ, Jason, was on time, so professional and played appropriate music for our group.  He connected well with this young crowd and a few of us "older" folks too!  I also want to add that when my vendor for a dance floor fell through at the last minute, Kit jumped in and made phone calls for me to help me out.  If I am ever in need of a DJ or planner for any kind of event - I will be trusting my event to Quantum Music Event Planners!  Thank you so much Quantum for the outstanding service you provided to me!  I look forward to working with you both in the future.

Because of how pricey everything is in wedding land, it took me and (especially) my hubby a long time to hire a planner. I knew I needed help, but the cost of it all kept spurring me to try to do it all alone.
Well, several anxiety attacks later, I finally met Kit. She proposed an extremely reasonable package that included Jason as the DJ. After reading their many great Yelp reviews I took the plunge!
My only regret was not hiring them sooner. We signed on for the month-of package, but Kit was available to help out as soon as we signed. There were occasional delays in communication but nothing major.
Meeting both Kit and Jason (and their sweet daughters) at our location was so reassuring. They energy they put out is: We will make it work, however you want to do it. They were very patient with all our agonized decision-making.
And they delivered!
Kit coordinated with all my vendors. On the day of, they set up tablescapes and lights. They executed our vision so beautifully, I cannot get over the image of how everything glowed to perfection. Kit helped me with a wardrobe malfunction and was always looking out for me.
Jason was great as a DJ and emcee. At first I was leery of having an emcee, due to my experiences at other weddings with obnoxious or just plain corny emcees. But Jason was professional, checked in with us beforehand as to how much we wanted him to be involved, and was a calm and assured presence throughout.
The music was great -- he built up the energy end people were already starting to dance before dinner was over! A few jumpy transitions here and there, but overall super fun tunes that kept people dancing all night!
The best part was at the end of it all, my husband, who'd had his doubts, said to me: They have exceeded all expectations. He was really impressed.
Now, when he talks to his buddies who are newly engaged, he tells them that getting a wedding coordinator is the best investment we could have made.
Thank you Kit and Jason!

I get a warm and fuzzy feeling just thinking of how incredibly crucial Kit and Jason were to our peaceof mind, and to our absolute enjoyment of our wedding.Because of how pricey everything is in wedding land, it took me and (especially) my hubby a long time to hire a planner.  I knew I needed help, but the cost of it all kept spurring me to try to do it all alone.Well, several anxiety attacks later, I finally met Kit. She proposed an extremely reasonable package that included Jason as the DJ.  After reading their many great Yelp reviews I took the plunge!My only regret was not hiring them sooner.  We signed on for the month-of package, but Kit was available to help out as soon as we signed. There were occasional minor delays in communication, but overall no complaints.Meeting both Kit and Jason (and their sweet daughters) at our location was so reassuring. They energy they put out is: We will make it work, however you want to do it.  They were very patient with all our agonized decision-making.And they delivered!Kit coordinated with all my vendors.  On the day of, they set up tablescapes and lights.  They executed our vision so beautifully, I cannot get over the image of how everything glowed to perfection. Kit helped me with a wardrobe malfunction and was always looking out for me.Jason was great as a DJ and emcee. At first I was leery of having an emcee, due to my experiences at other weddings with obnoxious or just plain corny emcees.  But Jason is a total professional, and checked in with us beforehand as to how much we wanted him to be involved. He  was a calm and assured presence all throughout. The music was great -- he built up the energy end people were already starting to dance before dinner was over! A few jumpy transitions here and there, but overall super fun tunes that kept us dancing all night! The best part was at the end of it all, my husband, who'd had his doubts, said to me: They have exceeded all expectations. He was really impressed.Now, when he talks to his buddies who are newly engaged, he tells them that getting a wedding coordinator is the best investment we could have made.Thank you Kit and Jason!

Love these 2. Kit and Jason are fun, very nice, and get it done. I was clueless, and Kit walked me through, and Jason got everyone motivated on the dance floor, even tho they were pretty motivated on their own! I highly reccomend this company for any party. Orei More...

I love these people! I am a first time bride at 46 years old, and Kit walked me through how to structure the reception, as I had no idea!!! Super nice person. She also set up the reception hall with just a few hints but she got it right!!!Jason was a great dj! My husband and I were at a New Year's Eve party, and the dj there was a guest at our wedding, and he said Jason was really good! That from a fellow professional.Their prices are reasonable, from what I gathered doing research before the wedding. They didn't break the bank.Thanks so much Kit and Jason, for all you did, and playing the music I picked. Orei Parker Morrison. More...

My wife and I hired Jason and Kit at QMEP to handle both our DJ and lightnight needs for our June, 2010 wedding. The service and value were outstanding!We found QMEP after a LOT of searching. We had a unique situation: my wife is Indian (first generation American), grew up in California, and I'm just a white guy from New England. We were looking for a DJ that could mix the cultures and music without any awkwardness. Oh yeah and we needed to do that on a budget. We quickly found that the Indian DJs in the area, in our budget, were not the answer. They were more suited for an all-Indian wedding reception, whereas we wanted a perfect fusion. I found QMEP listed on a few sites and eventually decided they were right for us. Here's my pro list (that I used to convince my wife!):- Jason (lead DJ?) had recent experience with Indian weddings and seemed to know both Bollywood and Bhangra music- Jason was very personable, immediately likeable, and sounded genuinely excited to work our wedding- QMEP was able to also do the lighting for our wedding*- Jason was willing to meet us at the wedding site - a long drive for him - beforehand and discuss all the particulars - The price was right*A little aside on the lighting thing: our venue (The Oceano in Half Moon Bay - another 5-star experience) offered us a tent out on the lawn for the reception. However, it was obvious that we were going to need to bring in an outside company to do the lighting for it. Lighting-specific companies were quoting me $1500 MINIMUM, and most would be $2000-$2500 to do it up right. With QMEP, we were able to just add it on top of our DJ package and pay on a per-light basis. Plus QMEP rents the lights themselves so the options are limitless. This probably saved us hundreds, perhaps $1000+, in the long run. Even if you don't choose QMEP, I highly recommend finding a single vendor who can handle these things if you are worried about budget.Up until the wedding, all of the interaction was as smooth as possible. Jason talked us through what we wanted, and made us feel as comfortable as possible. He offered options in terms of his role there - everything from "I'll just stand there and play the music you ask" to "I'll MC the night, run the course of events, crack jokes, and pick out all the music." (we obviously chose something in the middle). Kit his wife kind of served as a silent partner. I never met her, but emailed with her regarding all the logistics and financials. She was nothing but friendly and professional, and always prompt in replying to me. We organized this all from the East Coast and they were fine with phone and email for most of the arrangements. Jason helped us develop some recommended song lists, including taking some Indian music the mom-in-law had picked out. Jason talked us through lighting options - something we knew nothing about - after first consulting with the hotel about the specifics of the tent.At the wedding the experience was PERFECT. The lighting looked great, and gave the place a very intimate feel. Jason was totally at ease, finding the right balance of professionalism and joking and casual. Our wedding party LOVED him - I can't tell you how many compliments we got. He mixed the Indian music and the 80s/Top 40/Dance/R&B perfectly, doing like 3-song blocks of genres with thoughtful transitions. Our wedding was about 120 people (albeit with a good fraction of young people) and the dance floor was PACKED from start to finish. Not even exaggerating. And that includes all the Indian aunties and uncles, little kids, 20/30-somethings. It was an absolute blast. Jason had brought a sort of sidekick with him (the sort of thing other DJs wanted more $$ for; Jason hadn't even mentioned this beforehand), and the two of them even got into the dancing with a little - obviously enjoying themselves.  Over summer/fall, we went to 3 more (Indian) weddings and numerous guest who had also been at our wedding said they liked our music better!While I don't really have a basis for comparison, I can't image our wedding DJ experience being any better.   I will caveat this by saying my wife and I were incredibly low-stress and chill throughout the process (my opinion). Bridezilla my wife ain't. I think to some extent Jason fed off of that and we all felt relaxed and comfortable. More...

Kit and Jason are awesome. Not only did they keep the party rocking all night at our 10/23/10 wedding but they transformed our venue into an elegant and beautiful space. They implemented our vision perfectly and it was all that we hoped for. They went above and beyond being our DJ, serving as decorator, wedding adviser and therapist when things were chaotic. I cannot tell you how patient and accommodating Kit was when I needed to look at linens 100 times. The service that they provide was wonderful and I would highly recommend them. Thank you both for making our day so amazing and memorable. More...

Jason is a fantastic wedding DJ and emcee! He kept my wife and I and our wedding guests on the dance floor all night. He was also incredibly professional throughout the process, made great suggestions on the lighting and set-up of the reception room, and also provided the perfect amount of emceeing during the reception. Also, for those of you who care about the personalities of your vendors, he is a cool, down-to-earth guy. Not pretentious, obnoxious, or affected in the least. He was a class act throughout! More...

My wife and I hired QMEP for our wedding and it was such a smooth operation. Jason Shires can tailor his service (music and hosting personality) to an array of event styles from a relaxed jazzy cocktail party to an energetic dance party. He draws from his vast and diverse music library to deliver you exactly what you have in mind. Money very well spent! More...

Jason Shires from QMEP was amazing! He had all our guests dancing on the dance floor until the very end which is exactly what we wanted. He was incredibly easy to work with, taking time out of his busy schedule to drive all the way to the wedding venue once just to discuss the room layout. We also met with him another time before the wedding to discuss lighting options and set up. During the wedding, Jason did a fantastic job with MCing as well as DJing. We've heard a lot of great feedback from our guests about Jason and will enthusiastically refer him to anyone. Please book him for your wedding, you will be 100% satisfied, if not more! More...

My wedding was 1 month ago today (10/10) and guests are still telling me how much fun my reception was. Kit and Jason were fantastic from the first moment I inquired about their services. It was very personalized and I didn't feel like 'just another bride' as some other DJ's had made me feel.
As many brides know, things change a lot during the planning of your big day. Kit was so responsive every single time I sent an email, to make even the smallest change. When I did want to add a few things, Kit helped me keep it within my budget!

We provided a list of songs to play during the ceremony, bridal party entrance & songs we'd like to hear during the night. Every song was played at the right moment, exactly how we requested. No awkward silences or mistakes. The reception was a great party thanks to Jason's knowledge of how to gauge the vibe of the crowd.

I really can't say enough about how professional, prompt and nice Kit & Jason are. If anyone needs a reference, I will be more than happy to talk to you! ~Ahva

Jason was the DJ for our wedding on 10/23/10, and he did a fantastic job.  He read the crowd perfectly, playing some oldies and feel-good songs at first to warm up the crowd.  By the end of the night, the dance floor was packed, and everyone was sad when it was time to go home.  Thanks for making our wedding reception such a fun party, Jason!

Met with Kit and Jason and they are a lovely.  They know the business and are very accommodating.  Their prices are very reasonable and can adjust anything to fit what you need.  I ended up going with someone else for a wedding DJ because our personalities clicked better.  However, if they weren't available, I definitely would have choses Jason to DJ.  I highly recommend people searching for wedding DJ's to look into them, especially if you are on a budget.

We were very happy with our choice of DJ. We talked to several DJs and bands and couldn't have gone with a better company.
Kit and Jason were very professional, they knew what to do every step of the way, suggested some good ceremony details and found all the music we had on our list. They were very flexible on price and just so so nice to have business with. We also have met and discussed all the last minute details before the wedding and again couldn't be happier with their services and client handling.
Kit was our DJ on the day of the wedding and we were very happy that she was there to take care off all the announcements, crowd redirecting and played all the music we gave almost a day prior to our event.

Jason and Kit are the best.

The thing that I love about them is that they cover all aspects when it comes to putting a wedding together. They are very professional, detailed, organized and on time. They offered many different scenarios to meet some minor challenges we were facing to make sure things ran smoothly. They even came up with some new ideas to make our wedding and ceremony totally unique and fit our style to a “T”.

Jason and Kit both went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was perfect. They never missed a beat. I never had a problem reaching then they ALWAYS return my calls/emails.

With me being such a control freak, I had no worries of letting Kit work her magic decorating my wedding. She knew exactly what I was envisioning and brought it all to life.
Jason did our wedding pictures and I couldn’t have been more pleased . He captured all the moments that we wanted, he did an excellent job, not one bad shot. Kit was also the DJ playing all the latest hits and classic R & B we wanted to keep the party going!

We were both so pleased Quantum Music Event Planners, I wish I could get married all over again just to be able to work with them again. I so wish I would have found them when I first started planning my wedding…it would have saved me a lot of sleepless nights.

All in all Jason and Kit are the most kindest, funniest, nicest couple you could ever work with. They are hard workers and experts at what they do.

I thank them for make my wedding day – MAY 30th 2010 the best day of my life!!

Getting married on a budget sucks because you have to pick and choose the areas on which you want to splurge.  Initially for us a DJ was not going to be one of those areas.  We considered getting a family member to  do it via iTunes just to save.But after reading Jason's Yelp reviews I had to have him for our event and he did not disappoint.  Jason DJ'd our May 2010 wedding @ The Brazilian Room in Berkeley.  When you hire Jason you get so much more than just a DJ.  You get peace of mind.Thanks to him I was able to relax and enjoy my wedding.He was an excellent MC he had us and our guests laughing from beginning to end. He worked well with our other vendors and kept us on schedule.  Which is amazing given the fact we were thrown a curve ball morning of the wedding.  We had several surprise live  performances by our family members and friends.  Jason graciously and seamlessly fit these into our reception.Though everything didn't go perfectly.  There was a problem with one of the speakers during a song my friend was singing during the wedding proecessional.  I was more than happy with the service he provided and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or hire him again in the future.

This was our first time using Quantum Music for our wedding and Jason was wonderful. Jason and Kit worked with us prior to our wedding to customize a package for our ceremony that included our favorite songs, wireless and wired microphones that worked perfectly and didn't have any squelch/feedback. The price was very reasonable, and everything was set up right on time, and according to the schedule we provided him with. They provided a list of top songs, so we could choose what we wanted played for sure and not played at all.  Jason was very friendly, professional, and made sure everyone had a good time. He was a great announcer and had create alternatives to the traditional bouquet toss and garter activity. Jason was great about moving the wedding along time wise, and he worked well with our wedding coordinator to keep everything on track. Jason was super and we highly recommend him. More...

I am sooo happy we found Jason!!!! We orinignally had another DJ who flaked on us last minute and it turns out that it was a blessing in disguise. Jason was the perfect DJ/MC. We couldn't ask for anything more.

He was really good at staying on scheudle and directing everyone with what to do and when. He and Kit set the perfect ambience with the uplights and drapery. Our guests were dancing all night and even made comments about what a great DJ we had. At one point, he even started singing with the music and totally surprised everyone! It was a nice little bonus and our guests loved it. Jason is very, very good at reading the audience and reading people in general. He could tell that although we were a formal bunch, we could all be pretty goofy too, and he played into it. He was on time to everything, very responsive, super fun, and we are so pleased. Next time we need a DJ, we know exactly were to go. We would recommend him to anyone. Jason- YOU ROCK!

My wife and I met with Jason about eight months before we were to be married in September 2009 and after the consultation we were impressed.  We immediately knew that Quantum was going to be our choice because Jason had a wonderful balance of professionalism and making this a fun experience.  So we felt that we would be in good hands.  We had met a few weeks before the wedding date to verify details and I provided Jason with list of songs broken down by mood music for the dinner and dance music.  I asked him to play the majority of music from my list and also to get a feel for the crowd and play some stuff he thought would work.  Come the wedding day we got exactly what we expected music wise.  Our songs were played and he added in some fresh and familiar music.  He ha a great feel for the crowd.  Not only were we happy with the music but Jason also has a great personality which came out as he announced speakers and the bridal party.He had a an idea that we thought was creative called sing for your meal or something like that.  Basically we had 120 people broken up in 12 tables where each table had to get together and sing their favorite song about love then they could be off for some delicious grub.  It turned out to be a huge hit.  For one because the bridal party went first and didn't have to come up with a song so we could get our food come back and sit back and enjoy our family and friends coming up with Bon Jovi - Shot through the heart, The Beatles - All you need is love and much more.  It was entertaining and hysterical.  Also we heard from other married couples that they barely got to eat the day of their wedding.  We had some amazing food so we were not about to miss out so we thought that being able to sit back, enjoy our food, and take in the show was the way it should be.All in all I would highly recommend Jason and Quantum! It was an amazing day! More...

Jason & Kit are fabulous!  We hired them to DJ & day-of-coordinate our wedding this past October at the Brazilian Room. From our very first meeting, they were professional, accommodating & organized not to mention extremely kind.  No wonder they are preferred vendors for our venue!  Their knowledge of the Brazilian Room and its layout & rules was priceless.Jason arrived right on time to set up.  He had the requested music queued for the right moments.  He organized the people giving speeches.  He made sure mics were in the right place or given to the right people.  Most importantly, he kept everyone on the dance floor all night!  It was very important to me to have music that all of our guests felt comfortable dancing to - what I called "multi-generational music".  He did a fabulous job of this.  He read the crowd & kept everyone (seriously, everyone) on the dance floor all night!  The next morning I received multiple compliments about how great the music was from people of all ages!Kit did our day-of-coordinating.  She is dependable & so knowledgeable.  I had LOTS of details for her to take care of & she did everything PERFECTLY!  It was so wonderful to have someone there that I trusted & felt comfortable leaving in charge.  She allowed me to feel worry-free all day.  For a bride, this was invaluable.   Thanks so much Kit & Jason!

Jason was recommended to us by our venue, Jefferson Street Mansion, where he has been a preferred DJ for years. I'm so glad we went with him for our wedding this past October, he was great! He managed to get a huge crowd on the dance floor before dinner was even over, and kept the crowd dancing for the entire night. He was great about playing requests, as well as playing all the songs that we asked for beforehand. Kit, the business manager and Jason's wife, was great too. She always responded to my emails quickly and answered my million or so questions. I also had Jason provide ambient lighting for behind the head table. It came out looking fantastic, and translated really well in the photos, making everything look so warm and autumn-y.All in all, I would highly recommend Jason. I've been to weddings where no one danced all night, and they really just aren't as much fun as the ones where people are dancing. Jason kept the party going, and people didn't want to leave, even after the last song ended! Thank you Jason and Kit for making our wedding such a BLAST! More...

Kit is the epitome of professionalism and was just an absolute pleasure to work with from the moment we met. She is extremely well organized, creative, and responsive to her clients needs. If you need a wedding or event coordinator, I highly recommend you have Kit add this service onto the DJing. She's fantastic at it -- she made sure everything ran like clockwork. I interviewed a ton of planners and DJs in the bay area and couldn't have been happier with my decision and how things went. Everyone had a wonderful time and I owe so much of that to Kit!

My now husband gave me the task of conducting phone interviews with the DJs that responded to his inquiry for our July wedding.What steered me to contact QMEP was 1. They were on our venue's list of vendors & we selected our minister & caterer from this same list (see other reviews) Because QMEP has worked at this venue The Gardens at Heather Farm, they offer a great discount.2. They have great Yelp reviews. Who better to get feedback from than actual consumers, right?First DJ interview was QMEP with Kit. I immediately liked her just based on the initial call. Felt like I was talking to a longtime friend. Very personable & answered all my ques. U know how some vendors are pushy? Kit was sooo not like that. We set up a face to face mtng. My instincts were right about Kit. We signed the contract that same day, never even called other DJs to "shop around".Kit knows her stuff. Because we were on a tight budget, we didn't opt for the coord svcs but that did not deter her from offering suggestions based on her experiences. In other words, she wasn't "stingy" offering advice & guidance from scheduling to how things are typically done, etc. We met again two wks prior to finalize, go over playlist & agenda.Day of, everything went smooth.... When our emcee would go MIA, Kit stepped in. She played all our music & kept us on track. Kit is wonderful to work with. It's always a plus when u have good ppl in your corner. Glad she was in ours that day! More...

The music selection was fabulous- taking into account our requests yet utilizing Kit's great sense of timing and a few choices that did not occur to us but were perfect- the music flowed incredibly from pre-ceremony to post-reception. Jason was fabulous- the pictures were gorgeous, he was accomodating to requests, and extremely perceptive of our priorities and people that we might have wanted photographed more...
Their prices are excellent, and the quality represents a MUCH higher price range. Definitely consider them for your wedding or event- separately or together, you can't go wrong!

Being a DIY wedding, I did a bit too much planning on my own. That being said, our reception ran a little later on schedule than expected. Jason was exceptional on keeping our wedding on pace and making sure everyone had fun. We loved the music selection as well and we can not wait to see the photographs he took of the wedding.

I would like to thank him for the exceptional job he did and I highly referr his company.

Jason is the first DJ I've ever hired for an event. We hired him because he was extremely affordable and we didn't want anyone fussing over an iPod during the evening. Him and his wife are extremely responsive and accessible via email. He is really professional and really gave us what we asked for. He was on top of everything during the event - pronounced names correctly, didn't make any annoying / off comments, or dominated the event. He provided background / ambiance music and helped keep the evening moving along smoothly. One little issue that many of us noticed - he played a few of the songs on our song list more than once even though we provided enough music for the entire evening. More...

I had my wedding last month at the Piedmont Community center and used Quantum DJs.  Boy am I glad they di as DJ Jason made the party with his choice of music.  I was never able to sit for longer than 2 minutes as  the music was too good to waste time sitting down.  Old school, new hip hop, dancehall, r & b, reggae, pop everything we requested.  They were also very easy to work with and affordable in these hard times.  If you are looking for a fantastic dj for your next event I suggest you give them a call.

We just had our wedding on Valentine's Day. Quantum Music was superb!! Jason was super easy going and very good at reading the crowd. I did not even have to pick any songs and just trusted him with the song list for the night. All the guests enjoyed the music.
Since we did not hire an MC, he also played the part very well. He is very responsible. During the equipment setup, he even ran out of the hotel looking for us because my projector was not setup even though it was not even his responsibility to set it up for us. The evening went very smoothly and according to schedule even without an MC nor a wedding planner because Jason followed a schedule that I had given him. If you need someone to take a big chunk of 'chaos' out of your mind on your special day, Jason is definitely the one to hire!! QMEP is also very reasonably priced!! Thank You to Jason and the staff at Quantum Music & Event Planners.

Quantum Music was a great! Jason was the DJ for our wedding on March 7. He was a consummate professional. He dressed in the wedding colors, played the music I requested and riffed on the music selections to put together a great atmosphere and dance party. He worked well with our caterer and photographer and had just the right level of enthusiasm on the microphone for the dance songs and announcements.

He was great. He helped us rock out. I highly recommend Quantum Music.

QMEP was GREAT!!! Jason kept me together and rolled with any last minute changes I had. He was professional and listened to my guests whenever they wanted to hear something he played it and kept people out on the dance floor.

In the pre-planning phase Jason met with me near my work 2 times and on my shcedule. I had no idea what I was doing and he made sure I knew exactly what was going to happen that day and had really great suggestions, things I would never have thought of myslef. I also think it is important to get a DJ who is familiar with your venue, which Jason has been working at the JSM for years and the staff and owner know him and work well with him.

Thanks Jason

We were completely happy with the services Jason at Quantum Music provided to us. He was always extremely professional, but fun to work with at the same time. He is very good at what he does and everyone enjoyed his music. He not only kept the party going with his music, but directed our reception perfectly. Thank you very much! More...

We met with Jason for consultation; he provided excellent suggestions and creative ways to orchestrate our reception. During our wedding Jason was very professional and took charge leaving us with nothing to worry about. He had a soft, polished manner and kept the flow going throughout the day. His intuition regarding song choices and mixing music was right on the money. He even got out on the floor to demonstrate the slide. Our guests had a great time and we were so grateful to have the wedding of our dreams. Thanks Jason! More...

Jason and Kit are fantastic. The entire process was incredibly professional from the beginning. They have been doing this for awhile, so that they have the process down to a science which makes it incredibly easy to do. You can tell that they care about you and making the day go well. One of our big things was that things kept moving and being on time. Jason was phenomenal at making sure that happened and checking with us to make sure we were on track. We were totally pleased and highly recommend them. More...

Jason was the DJ at our wedding 10 days ago, and I can't say enough about him and his work.  We heard of Jason through two friends who RAVED about him.  Now I see why.  Both Jason and his wife Kit who run Quantum Music are kind, caring, and hard working.  They are very detail-oriented and very friendly (not at all like dealing with a big DJ company).  Jason came to our house twice to go over music lists.  He also sent me two CD's of customized sample music to help me pick my processional songs and did not stop until I had picked the perfect ones.  It was also great working with Kit who had lots of creative ideas for how to keep the crowd on the dance floor.  Clearly they both have a lot of experience.  The music was off the hook and Jason somehow knew what to play to keep everyone happy.  He reads crowds incredibly well, which is not a skill all DJs have but seems to me to be one of the most important.   Above all of this, Jason and Kit are honest, kind people who love what they do.  You spend a lot of time working with your DJ in the days leading up to the wedding, so it's very important that you trust (and like!) them.  These two were a dynamic duo to work with.

I am suprised to hear Jenn H complain about Jason. What Jenn H does not know is that Jason is not in charge of making sure people have champagne, if the bride did not pay for the waiters to come out and make sure everyone had champagne befor the toast that was her perogative. People ususally have drinks and can toast with whatever beverage they have at the time. I just got married 10 days ago and Jason was GREAT!!! he kept me together and rolled with any last minute changes I had. He was professional and listened to my guests whenever they wanted to hear something he played it and kept people out on the dance floor.

My husband Mike and I had an excellent experience with Jason as our DJ at our wedding in August.  He came highly recommended and totally lived up to our expectations.  In the crazy chaos of our wedding day, Jason arrived and went about his work perfectly and efficiently.  He provided all the sound equipment for our ceremony (the mics worked perfectly), toasts and of course did the music for the dancing.  We gave him an idea of the music we liked beforehand, had one meeting to discuss our preferences and he put it all together in a great combination that had everyone dancing the entire night.If you live in the Bay Area and are looking for a DJ that will truly listen to what you want and deliver, Jason is the man for the job.Thanks Jason!

Jason and Kit Shires (the couple that runs Quantum Music) came through for my wife and I in a big way. Jason was incredibly calm and professional, on the phone, during our pre-wedding meeting, and during the event itself. He had excellent suggestions for music and activities that kept our guests happy and on their feet. They were very considerate when working out a price (which is incredible for what you get) and remembered every request that we had made. It was a little difficult to coordinate with them at first when we were still shopping around but I have to assume that's because I was a crazy ball of stress (we booked them with only one month to go!).

Jason did something amazing during our wedding that really made me appreciate the thought they put into every event they host. At one point during the reception, a big dog ran into the building (our wedding was at a park, no dogs allowed off leash) and was jumping around the room. Thankfully, the wait staff was able to shoo the dog out before it could do any real damage, but I was furious. There were signs all over the place saying "Private Event", why would those people let their dog run around?! I got up from my seat next to my bride to give the oblivious owner a peace of my mind, but Jason was already up.

He took me by the shoulders and said, "I've got this. This is not your job. Your job is to go be with your new wife. Now I'm gonna go do my job, and you go do your job." And just like that, I knew he was right. He went outside and politely got the dog owner to leave, while I sat down with my bride and was completely happy all over again. He knew just when to step up and just what to say to fix the situation and make me feel better, and I can't thank them enough for it.

I highly recommend you contact QMEP for any of your music needs, you'll never meet a nicer, more capable team!

I got married last May 2008 and I used Quantum Music to do the Photography and music/DJ services and the did such and get job and went above and beyond what I expected. My wife and I and everyone who was at my wedding and who has seen the pictures loved everything. I would recommand Quantum Music hands down and if anyone is getting married  or need a great photograher or a wonderful DJ than you can't go wrong with using Quantum Music & Event Planmers. Just give Jason a call @ 925-586-8316 and use him at your next event. You won't be sorry. I wasn't and will use them and only them for any up and coming event that I have.  Jason and Kit  are great!                                                                               Mathew B.

We had a wonderful experience with both Jason as well as Kit, (She was the DJ at our wedding). I dealt with Jason for the planning part but met with Kit twice, and she performed at our reception. Both of them were great throughout. Kit was so sweet and very helpful with the planning. She did an excellent job with mixing music. My family is Persian and my husband's family is American so we had to play both kinds of music at our reception. She had everyone dancing the whole time. She was very calm and very professional.
We also had a special monogram light made for our reception to be projected onto the dance floor, and it turned out beautifully.
They were flexible with the price as well and when you are on a tight budget like we are, Jason worked with us alot. We will definitely be using them for our next event and have already recommended them to our friends!

They were pretty much the only ones they recomended us to use and they let us know how difficult it is for them to let any outside vendors come in. We just thought since they only prefer to use this DJ why not just go with them it would just go smoothly that way since they are used to JSM. Thank god we were pleased.  The company did exactly what we hired them to do and did it perfectly. Kit thanks for everything. You made us feel like there were no limits to what we could request and you would come through with. OUr wedding was amazing and the music and how the DJ had the events flow from one to another throughout hte night is what makes the day Perfect. I wrote a list with my husband and wedding party of songs about us and our times. Take a look if you need some ideas. Go crazy be creative and play really what is about the two of you and your lives.

We hired Jason for our December 2007 wedding at the Brazil Room. Through the process we worked directly with him, and he was the DJ at the wedding. We both thought he did a fabulous job! We met with him twice in person before the wedding (basically whenever we asked him to meet with us). He was great because we lived in Berkeley, and both times he met us at a local Starbucks that was convenient to us. He brought up a lot of questions for us and comments that we hadn't thought of before.  We were both distracted with other elements of the wedding, and Jason made sure that he had all the information he needed and helped us out (ie, we did less work). At the wedding, he played all the music we requested and none that was on the banned-list plus was super good at reading the crowd. Our wedding was just about perfect, and it was all because we had great vendors that knew what they were doing even if we didn't! We would definitely recommend Jason. He was professional, informative, and helpful. Thanks Jason!K & M More...

Jason recently did our second compay party for about 15- people.  He does an excellent job in feeling the crowd and making sure that everyone is having a good time.  We had a diverse crowd and he was able to play something for everyone.  He is very professional and knows what he is doing.  His pricing is excellent for the service he delivers.  He is an excellent disc jockey and I would ecommend him to anyone.

Jason DJ'd our wedding in 2005 and was absolutely great!  He is a total class act and lots of  fun to work with.  Everyone had a blast at our wedding!  He played all our requests and chose other great songs as well.   He even helped MC the reception speeches and artfully kept the microphone moving so that a few folks who might have gone on too long didn't (this at our request).For what it's worth, I totally agree that the poor review comes from either a competitor, or someone who bashes businesses for fun.  If you look at her profile, you'll see that she doesn't have  anything  nice to say about anyone.  Her review of the caterer we used is so off-base as to be comical (which is how I ended up here, so many years after the fact of doing business with Jason).

We had Quantum Music DJ our wedding and everything was perfect.  The music was spot on with our taste and Jason was very accommodating  with all of our special requests, even those we threw at him the day of!  We received many compliments from our guests saying how much fun they had dancing.  Our wedding flowed incredibly smoothly because our DJ coordinated with everyone from the caterers to the photographers making sure everyone knew what was going on.  I would highly recommend Quantum Music for any occasion.

Jason Shires of Quantum Music was an absolute Godsend!He is extremely professional, accommodating, and serious about his work being of high quality. We loved that he came to our home prepared and willing to answer our many questions. He was also able to recommend a fantastic catering service called Culinary Excellence, with whom he has a great rapport, and lemme' tell ya, works so well with, that our event appeared seamless. His understanding of what your event means to you, goes beyond just playing songs. He gets a feel for relationships, and what's important to you. He uses that to suggest songs, or run with, in order to create that special mood that you want to have captured at your event.Quick story: I am the bride, and I was nervous as all get out, not to mention stressed over a few things that were happening outside anyone's control. During the second visit to our home, I had mentioned to Jason, a special song that I used to sing to my son every night for the first 2 1/2 years, and how soothing it was. I don't know if he knew how stressed I was or what, but he played the song while our guests were being seated, and I instantly relaxed when I heard it. Of course I almost started crying,...... but the effect was a wonderful feeling and heartfelt thanks, no matter how it came about. The point is, he listens, hears you, and caters to your taste. Not only that, if you give him creative license, he'll use your preferred type of music as a platform, and build on it.We also found him to be adaptable to any situation; always maintaining professionalism, as well as being friendly and helpful in a way that made us aware that he understands the importance of your special day.My husband and I intend to use his company for upcoming events at the firm, as well as any personal events, that need that extra special and personal touch.I would highly recommend Quantum Music for any event, big or small, where quality and fun times are important to you.

Quantum Music was our DJ for our wedding on July 28, 2007. They were so AWESOME!! Really, everyone commented to me about how fun our party was because the music was so good. Our DJ was ontime, professional, right on schedule with all of the plans for the night and totally looked like he was enjoying himself too. If I ever need a DJ again, I will call them. Plus, after a lot of researching, they came in as being really affordable. Having a good DJ is really important and I was really happy with Quantum Music. If you are looking for a DJ, ask them for a proposal. You won't be sorry! More...

Quantum Music was our DJ in July 2007 and I couldn't be happier with the service. Jason Shires was our DJ and we met with him about eight months prior to the wedding and then again a few weeks beforehand. He was very attentive and professional.The wedding itself was a huge success and I have to credit Jason with a lot of this. He played great songs, and a great selection too.  I would highly recommend Quantum Music to anyone who is getting married in the Bay Area. More...

We used Quantum Music DJ & Event Planners for our wedding last April (2007) and they were awesome!Jason personally met us for lunch weeks before hand and helped us with the musical details of setting up our event. He was very professional and fun to work with. We even chose him over a DJ (company) who had previously worked the reception venue.Jason personally DJ'd our wedding reception and was fantastic. He stuck to our play list as well which was really important to us. The price was very affordable and well worth it.Thanks Jason!Best regards,Brandon and Veronica More...
