The Mattress Factory

19th December, 2014

Last week we opened the mailbox and were pleasantly surprised to find the new brochure for the Mattress Factory Museum in Pittsburgh.  We opened it up and look who got featured!  The Mattress Factory is one of the few installation art museums in the world and an amazing venue for a party.  If you want a memorable wedding at a truly unique space, we highly recommend it.

“I can’t stress enough how much different and dull my wedding would have been without DJ Zimmie. He so incredibly understood and delivered exactly what we asked for and what we didn’t ask for. We knew we didn’t want the typical wedding music with the Sinatra, Martin, etc. My husband and I love 90′s hip-hop, we both have been working in bars/clubs since that era so we wanted music to reflect one of the things that we bonded over. He played non-explicit samples from explicit songs that we all know and love. He read the crowd and gave them what they wanted and always kept us surprised with what came next. It was the best music I’ve heard at a wedding and so many of my guests agreed, one of which is a wedding DJ herself.

Zimmie is a great person, a talented DJ, and he should probably just have a PhD in music. We are already talking about sending him a deposit for our kids’ graduation parties.”

Katy and Gautam’s Surprise Tango

14th October, 2014

At a wedding we recently DJ’d, the bride and groom unleashed an amazing rehearsed Tango as their first dance.  We see a lot of cool first dance ideas but this might be the most impressive thus far.  Shout out to Syncopated Pictures for the video.

By the time we got around to selecting the music, I could not manage to make another wedding decision.  I wrote Zimmie with some basic preferences, a timeline of the event, and the instructions to “Do what you do.”.  Needless to say DJ Zimmie had the smooth tunes flowing through cocktail hour and all generations breaking it down on the dance floor after dinner.  His sense of humor and attention to detail made him a great emcee, as he helped us get through the evening without a hitch.  As if this isn’t enough of a ringing endorsement my Mom is now a fan of DJ Zimmie on Facebook.

When handling an event of magnitude such as a wedding or an event of personal significance, it is important to trust and know the people you work with and rely on.  We at Yes We Cater Inc. can say that whenever we see that Zimmie is on the itinerary for any given event we can rest assured that the details for the announcements & formalities will be timely and accurate, and more importantly, the overall feeling of the event is a high energy, celebratory and joyous feeling.  Focusing more on the overall happiness of the guests and the guests of honor than on the ego of the entertainer himself (i.e. self-promotion, over announcing, etc.), we highly recommend Zimmie to all of our clients when asked for a recommendation.  He is one of the best we know for Pittsburgh & beyond.

We owe you a huge THANK YOU for making our wedding an awesome dance party! So many of our friends commented that you were fabulous and that our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever been to! You really understood our style and were so amazingly helpful along the way. Best DJ of all time! Thanks again.

DJ Zimmie was not only amazing at what he does, but he really understood our taste in music and what we wanted from the beginning to the end of the evening. He was very professional and so easy to work with. We couldn’t have been happier with DJ Zimmie and his stylings! We had the time of our lives and even had countless guests telling us that they had never had so much fun at a wedding!

My wife and I didn’t want your typical corny, joke telling wedding DJ. Fortunately for us, we found DJ Zimmie. We were running late after the ceremony, but Zimmie smoothly extended cocktail hour into cocktail hour and a half for us while we got situated. But after dinner, he got everyone up and on the dance floor including family members I’ve never seen dance before. While at the bar, receiving rave reviews on the DJ choice from both the bartenders and guests, I turned and was able to count all 5 people still sitting down. The hardest part of dealing with Zimmie was spelling his last name on the check. Thanks DJ Zimmie for being so easy to deal with and making an awesome night for my wife and I.

Some of our guests talked about the venue or the food after the wedding, but absolutely everyone went on and on about the music.  DJ Zimmie outshone several rooms of botanical gardens and the filet topped with lump crab… not to mention my wedding dress!  His mix set the right mood at every turn and the transitions were great. And specific songs that we just had to have blended perfectly.  Thank you for a wonderful party with our friends and family!

After my fiancé and I snuck out of the country to get married, we threw a big bash back home to celebrate. We wanted our party to be an event that all of our friends and family could truly enjoy, and one that we would all remember. What we didn’t want was a cheesy, boring wedding reception with a cheesy, boring DJ.

During our search for a DJ that would suit our style, DJ Zimmie came highly recommended to us. I’d known of him and watched him work his magic before, so right away I knew he’d be the perfect one to set the vibe for our party. Zimmie was a complete professional and fun to work with during the entire process. He took all of our requests into account and met them with ease. But most importantly, he did exactly what we hoped for—he gave us, and our friends and family (even the break-dancing ones) a party to truly enjoy. Thanks to DJ Zimmie and his music for such a memorable night!

As an event concierge, I use only the best ingredients to make a party great.  When my clients need a DJ, Zimmie is always my first recommendation.  One call to Modern Event Solutions gets me the music, lighting and sound I need for any gig, no matter the size, the age group or the demographic.  It’s an easy way to make me look good by making any party I’m involved with a success.
