2018 MES / DJ Zimmie Infomercial

20th February, 2018

It’s 2018 and there are a lot of DJs out there who are much better at marketing than they are at DJing.  Give us a call when you’re putting that party together and we’ll come knock it out of the park.

Sarah & Kris

21st November, 2017
Check out this great video Playfish Media made from Kris & Sarah’s wedding earlier this year in Seattle. I gave Sarah a mix CD at a gig I was doing in a mall in Seattle 8 years ago and when it came time for her big day, she gave me a call. The wedding was a blast and I’m happy we got to reconnect.  Congratulations and all the best, guys!

2017 Promo Video

11th August, 2017

2017 has been flying by and the amazing events have been non-stop.  I took a quick break recently to cut a fresh promo video and while it’s hard to capture the electricity of a frenzied dance party, I hope this video will give you a glimpse of what Modern Event Solutions does. The next time you need a DJ, we’d love to help. Let’s talk!

If you’re sharing the video with friends and colleagues, don’t forget our recently redesigned Press Kit!

Coming up in 2017

26th January, 2017

In an industry as competitive and cutthroat as entertainment, authenticity is hard to come by. Longevity is even harder.

When I first started Modern Events Solutions in 2009, my vision was simple: to bring my experience DJing for some of the hottest nightclubs around the world and diverse musical knowledge to creating and enhancing the ambience at corporate and private events. Over the years MES has delivered on this vision to a variety of clients, from large brands like Red Bull and Adidas to families and newlyweds. Throughout this journey our “secret sauce” for success has had two essential ingredients: professionalism and experience.

In addition to an updated Press Kit, we’ll be releasing a fresh promotional video to showcase our unique strengths that can’t be bought or faked, and that set MES apart. Going onto our eighth year the future is looking promising as we strengthen our existing relationships and make new friends.

Scott & Daniel

20th July, 2016

On September 6th, 2015, shortly after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage, Scott & Daniel tied the knot.  I was thrilled to be the DJ for this, one of the most memorable weddings of my career.  Scott and Daniel are an extremely fun couple and their friends and family, a group filled with people who entertain for a living, were just as fun.

A year after the Supreme Court’s decision, the New York Times checked in on couples around the country who were married shortly after the ruling and Scott & Daniel were included.
