- Each wedding or event is unique, and is a collection of people from a variety of age groups and cultural backgrounds, so we have learned to be flexible enough to meet the needs of any group. For DJ Sota Entertainment, each event is about the clients celebrating with their family and friends, NOT about the DJ/Emcee. We are not the style of DJ/MC that likes the sound of their own voice and plays their own personal favorite music selections, instead we custom tailor each event based on the request of our clients. we do our best to make sure our clients are happy and that their guest are having a GREAT time. We love seeing people celebrate to the music we spin.
- We know the DJ/Emcee is an essential part of your special event so we make it our goal to ensure each wedding or event flows smoothly and successfully and that everyone is having a great time. Our style is always professional and friendly because we know how important it is that you feel comfortable and confident with the DJ/Emcee you choose.
