Amazing!! I was so happy with our DJ and I got so many compliments. He really read the mood of the group and kept great music coming. He hit every cue perfectly and our music was seamless. I had a couple guests ask for his contact information after the event and even had a party planner tell me he was the best she's seen. He is polite, helpful, and great at what he does. The photobooth and props were a big hit too, and wonderful keepsakes for both us and our guests. Thank you Jason!!

I cannot recommend Jason Shires and QMEP highly enough. He did an absolutely stupendous job at our wedding reception. He nailed the musical vibe that we were looking for throughout the various parts of the reception: cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. And he did so with minimal instruction; he just knew exactly what to do!
He also was perfect as the emcee and knew exactly how to speak and when to speak. He read the crowd like an expert, graciously took requests from our guests, and even adjusted on the fly to unscheduled toasts and impromptu singing from some of the guests in attendance.
Jason was a breeze to work with before, during, and after the reception. I offer him and QMEP my highest recommendation.

I've been to weddings where the DJ was just awful - you couldn't have paid the guests to dance the music selection was so bad. QUANTUM was the complete opposite. Jason was great to work with, within our budget, and really followed our music requests. He provided us with a very thorough packet to complete where we listed music we did and did not want to hear, and we also provided him with a list of songs that we thought would be good for every part of the reception. He really understood our music taste, and the dance floor was going nuts. We had a lot of our guests comment on how great the DJ was after the wedding.
We also opted to use the DJ for some uplighting in the reception room.

Jason was the DJ at our wedding at the Brazil Room and he is great! He saved the day twice by setting up two microphones for the ceremony and finding an impromptu scrapbook (which I forgot) to use for the photo strips from the photobooth. Music for the ceremony and reception were exactly what we asked for. His emceeing skills are awesome and he was a big help when trying to figure out the finicky projector and computer setup for our slideshow.
We used the open air photobooth and set it up outside on the Brazil Room patio. This was the first time it was setup outside and it turned out great. They also provided hats and other props which the guests loved.
We were on a budget and found the price very reasonable for the DJ services and the photobooth. Jason is great to work with and is very responsive with emails. We only met the day of the wedding and there were no problems at all!

So you get engaged... Then comes the wave of questions regarding the timeline, cost, color schemes and details to pull together your special day. All you need to know during this time is to pick up the phone and call Quantum Music! Once you have a meeting face to face with Kit, your nerves will be calmed as she will spell out all that needs to be done to get you and your partner discussing what needs to be handled and how to handle it most efficiently. They were able to handle any size of request as they are very resourceful and helped us come up with ideas we didn't even think of. From the moment we met with Kit and Jason, they helped us finalize important decisions, organize and most importantly were able to keep us calm. They gave us great ideas for personalized touches and details, set up all of our lighting and decor and helped plan and coordinate the ceremony. They also provided us with the best DJ in the area. Kit was our coordinator and Jason was our DJ and we loved them! Our wedding went off without a hitch and our guests LOVED the music. Jason really knows how to pick the perfect songs for each moment and could really engage the crowd. I highly recommend using Quantum music for your wedding in Northern California as these two were incredibly easy to work with, creative and very organized.

Our DJ Kit made the night flow so that we could just enjoy ourselves. She met with us ahead of time and talked to us about how we wanted the evening to flow and then on the night of she made sure we transitioned to dinner, cutting the cake and throwing the bouquet, etc so we didn't have to worry about it. Kit is a true professional and she far exceeded my expectations of a DJ.
She also did an amazing job of choosing the music to keep everyone on the dance floor. We even extended the music because so many people were still dancing.
We also loved the lighting that they provided. We had an outdoor reception in an olive grove so we had twinkle lights and uplighting in the trees and market lights on the dance floor. Kit and Jason helped us determine what lighting would be best and it was beautiful.
The photo booth they provided was a huge hit with our guests. They also provided funny hats, sunglasses and other props so our friends and family had a great time taking pictures. We provided a scrapbook for them to leave a copy of the photos and a message. I think this was our best splurge because the scrapbook is my favorite keepsake from the wedding.

We hired QMEP to provide dj services and lighting for our wedding, and I don't think we could have found anyone better. The lighting was great and added the perfect accent to our party. Jason is not just a DJ extraordinaire, but a mind reader and total crowd pleaser as well. He was consistently enthusiastic about working with us, and even though we really only met with him a handful of times, we felt like he was a part of the family!
Jason is professional, courteous, fun, and easy-going and I would recommend him to anyone. My husband is from West Africa and wanted to hear some of his favorite African tunes at the reception. Jason helped him to transfer his music and then he listened to all of it and skillfully wove the African songs into the rest of his playlist. On top of that, he managed to play all of my favorite songs, emcee the event, set up equipment for our friends who played music, and set up the equipment for my husband to play his traditional African xylophone.
He truly went above and beyond to make our big night perfect.

Jason got the party started and personalized it for me! We had a great time dancing it up...old and young.

We worked with Jason specifically and he was very reasonable and helpful. He was really friendly and it helped we had similar music interests. He played all our songs we really wanted and in the order or specific time we wanted them to play. He is reliable and was fun to work with. The only change would have been to reduce the volume during the dance portion of the wedding since we were a very small wedding and at times difficult to chat with guests but the music was pumping and everyone was having a great time! Thank you!

Worked with Jason from QMEP for our wedding. Jason was very professional and knowledgable about everything. I loved his music selection at our wedding and was very happy with the service provided.

We recently got married and used QMEP as our DJ. We worked with Jason S to coordinate and plan for the day of and used Jason W as the actual DJ. They were both amazing! Jason S is organized and very experienced in this area. He gave us great ideas and recommendations. On the day of, Jason W threw a huge dance party, which is what we wanted. Everyone had a blast and we got numerous compliments about the music. I would definitely recommend QMEP.

We chose Quantum because they were the coordinators for my wedding at Ardenwood. When looking at their website, it appeared that there were several DJ's in their company, however the person that was our DJ, was not on their website, but the wife of our photography and the owner of Quantum. Sadly, her song choices were not great and the mixing was awkward. Once Jason took over, things got a lot better. I would recommend them, but only if you get a professional DJ the entire time. Their prices were comparable.
Kit is definitely featured on our website, has been a dj for over 10 years and if you check the other reviews, you will notice her stellar reviews. The music played was from the list and she took requests.

After reading other bride reviews I was a little shocked at what happened at our wedding. We had to ask him to turn down the music several times during dinner because our guest complained they could not hear each other talk without yelling. He definitely did not read the crowd very well and after clearing the dance floor several times with music our guest did not like we had to ask him to change the music and once he did the dance floor filled up again. He did follow the timeline great and took a lot of direction well I just wished I did not have to spend my wedding day running back and forth to the DJ.
This review is about a DJ that no longer works for us. We ask the reviewer to clarify the name of the this dj so there is no confusion. Thank you.

After meeting with Jason I knew he was the DJ for my wedding. He was a pleasure right from the start. He pretty much had to lead me through the process. Helped me choose songs that would work for our wedding. He went above and beyond in every way!!

Jason was very nice and for the most part did a great job. He kept the timing of the weddign moving well and he was a good announcer.
My only issues were 1)I sent him a CD with all my music a week before the wedding and on the mornign of the wedding he tried it for the first time and said it didn't work (which added a little bit of anxiety but he said he was able to download the songs before the wedding). 2) I didn't really hear any of our selected dance songs but the songs he did play were good and everybody danced all night long.

This was the biggest let-down of all of my vendors. He didn't play the songs that we specifically asked for during cocktail hour or dinner. He said he could edit/cut some songs for us but, when asked how it was coming 5 days before the wedding, he said that he couldn't do it so we were on our own (we spent the 5 days before our wedding learning how to use Garage Band so we could prep all of our own wedding music). He played the wrong song for our first dance (ruined the moment quite a bit) and played the cake cutting song while we were still outside with guests (when we finally did the cake cutting he let the song continue until the end instead of jumping back to dance music, made for a Very awkward 2 minutes of our guests watching my husband and I, wondering if the cake cutting wasn't actually over yet). His selection of dance music was good but he did not mix or fade the music, just let totally different beats overlap for 10 seconds between songs (which was awkward to listen to and meant the dance floor stopped moving between every song). He is the owner of the company so presumably the best that Quantum has to offer as he has trained the other DJs, if you're desperate for a cheap DJ for prom this could be a good fit but it would definitely have been worth more money for my wedding to have a real DJ who can handle a complex event and knows what he is doing.

Jason did a great job as our DJ. Many guests came up to tell us it was the best wedding music they had ever heard! The lghtng made the room, the photobooth was fun for all and Jason kept the pace of the evening moing for us by coordinating with the caterer and us. I'd highly recommend QMEP to any bride to be!

Kit Shires was our DJ/MC for our wedding and she was wonderful. She was fun and kept everyone on the dancefloor. But she was also very professional and kept our wedding feeling classy and nice too. She had a lot of helpful suggestions for us when we were planning the schedule for the day and everything went just as planned the day of. We were very happy with QMEP and would definitely recommend them!
Member Since: 7/13/2010
First of all let me tell you that Jason and Kit are wonderful. Kit got back to me everytime I emailed her within 24 hours and the one time they didn't and I called them, they already had the information I needed and were going to call me within minutes anyway.
Jason helped me through the entire timeline process and gave me ideas on when to do what. He was also very honest and really helped me out by fixing my already contracted time and shifting some things around, so that it would accomodate my ceremony microphones which at first I told him I woudn't need. He saved me a lot of money by doing this, and he's already reasonably priced. Most people would have taken advantage of getting the extra money, but i'm telling you he's so honest. He really saved the day because I was already completely over budget.
I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. He DJ'd my best friend's wedding before mine and I hope he will DJ many other weddings I attend. he kept the crowd moving and totally kept the party going. GREAT JOB QMEP!!!
Thank you Jason!!

Honestly, we went with Quantum because they were available and they were in our price range. We had Dakota DJ the event and he was a nice guy. There were a few mess ups when it came to playing certain songs at certain times, but for the most part it was just fine.
Would recommend based on the price.
