WHY CHOOSE US

Top Notch DJs

Since 2009, Modern Event Solutions, founded by DJ Zimmie, has strived to offer premier-quality DJing, sound, lighting and event consultation from only the best veteran DJs. We bring the skillset, professionalism and excitement of the hottest nightclubs in town to your event to make it unforgettable.

For 12 years, DJ Zimmie has held residencies and headlined some of the biggest nightclubs domestically and internationally. His vast musical knowledge, crowd-pleasing song selection and creativity keep his schedule filled with gigs both at home and around the globe. Skill and professionalism have made him the top DJ choice of companies such as Scion, Red Bull, Adidas, Scratch Academy, Cartoon Network and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Zimmie has also shared the stage with legends such as DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ AM, DJ Premier, Z-Trip, LMFAO and more in cities from New York to Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

When you book a DJ through Modern Event Solutions, you’re getting someone with thousands of gigs under their belt, not someone who DJs a handful of events a year as a side job. We hand select only the best DJs that we personally know, trust and have worked with. Other companies book so many weddings that their options become whoever is available for your date. We’d rather tell you we don’t have anyone available for your event than send you the wrong fit. Your event may be the most important day of your life and we treat it with the respect it deserves!

Appropriate Pricing

You wouldn’t use a florist that quoted you a price without asking how many flowers you needed, so why use an entertainment company with the same type of pricing? Every event is unique and special so we treat each event that way. We’ll discuss the details of your event with you to make sure we understand exactly what you need and quote you a price tailored to your event. We won’t try to sell you anything you don’t want or need and we’ll make sure you understand exactly what you’re getting.

We’re owned and operated by DJs so there’s no middleman to add additional costs. Some wedding companies charge you a huge fee and only pay a small percentage to their DJs. You end up paying $1000 for a $350 DJ while someone you never meet is laughing all the way to the bank.

Premium Equipment

A long history in the nightclub industry has given us the understanding that using higher quality sound and lighting gear really makes a huge difference. Not only does it sound better and create a better visual atmosphere, nobody wants to see old, beat-up gear in the background of their gorgeous photos. We’re constantly re-investing money into our gear to make sure that nothing will malfunction during your special event and everything looks and sounds the best that it can. Most of our DJs even travel with backup laptops to safeguard against computer failure.

VIEW ACTUAL CRAIGSLIST AD FROM EVENT COMPANY

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.

-Lindsey Farrell & Ashwin Bhatawdekar // 10.23.2011

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.
