This review is for Kara Stokowki who was our amazing DJ for my wife and I’s wedding at Briar Barn Inn. Kara was an absolutely incredible DJ. She was extremely communicative and from day 1 wanted to get to know us, our music style, and what we were hoping for. She was very detailed oriented, and walked through the ceremony and reception with us to make sure all of our details were ironed out. She had wonderful suggestions for songs for certain parts of our ceremony and party. She thought of details and music we had not thought of, and so we felt in very good hands with Kara’s experience! Our biggest goal was to have a fun atmosphere and keep people dancing all night, and Kara did just that! So many family members and friends came up to us and told us that our DJ was “amazing” and “the best they had ever seen at a wedding!” The best tangible compliment I can possibly give is that most people never left the dance floor until after the very last song of the night, which speaks to Kara’s skill, experience, and overall wonderful energy. She even came out and danced with us for some of the last few songs, which absolutely made our night. Any future party I want to have Kara as our DJ. You would be lucky to have her helping to make your event special and fun!
DJ Kara was just absolutely phenomenal to work with from start to finish! We had a couple of check-ins with her before the wedding week, but then week-of she was so involved and detailed in ways that helped us walk through the day with details we hadn’t thought of. The reception flowed so smoothly and the dance music was PERFECT. It was nothing like a stereotypical wedding dance floor – all the music we loved and knew all the words to from The Proclaimers to the Talking Heads, with a multi generation dance floor rocking for three hours. Kara made our reception really sparkle and we couldn’t be more grateful. Rave reviews from everyone we talked to.
Beat Train was exactly what I was hoping to find when looking for a wedding DJ service. They provide non-corny DJs who “get it” and were very responsive and professional. We went with Kara as our DJ and she was excellent. She was extremely sweet and did such a great job on our wedding day. She’s clearly a talented DJ and kept people dancing all night. I’d recommend Beat Train and Kara to anyone.
Kara was EXCELLENT. Supremely easy to work with before the wedding and well organized, making life a lot easier on us and giving us one fewer thing to have to worry about. She really shined during the the event itself. Throughout the night, and the next morning, guests came up to us to tell us how good our DJ was. It is hard to put into words why she is so good at what she does – my spouse and I tried to break it down in the days after our wedding and really she just seems to have a great “feel” for what to play when and how to move from one thing to another (not to mention that she made life easy for us and was willing to accommodate some additional requests). I’ll try to explain. Kara played all of our “must” plays but more impressively managed to play most of our “recommended” songs as well. I don’t really understand how – our list was pretty long – I think it might be because she has a way of knowing exactly when to transition to a new song to keep the energy going without short-changing any songs. She also had a keen knack for knowing when to play what songs. For example, we had a wide range of age groups at our wedding. Kara opened the night with a block of mo-town and other classics that transcended generations. It was brilliant: from the jump we had old and young sharing the dancefloor. As the night went on and the older crowd needed a rest, she transitioned to newer hits. In short: we are super thankful we had Kara DJ our wedding and we cannot recommend her highly enough.
We know we are in good hands when we have DJ Dayglow lined up for an event. She consistently brings incredibly positive energy that translates seamlessly into her sets. She blends obscure, yet extremely accessible, finds with a few lesser-spun crowd-pleasers to bring smiles to our visitors, regardless of age or background, and get them on the dance floor.
