Thank you for your Comments!

DJ I AM, is by far the BEST in the business!! Kyle and Lisa are a force to be reckoned with!! Prompt, Courteous, and Professional!! Our Favorite DJ!! Love, The Drayton's

Myron & Theresa Drayton - Tampa, FL

When I booked DJ I AM I knew he would be good for my son's 16th Swag party, but he passed my expectations by 1000%. He was GREAT and EXCELLENT. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night long without missing a beat. Even tho we provided him a list of songs that we wanted to hear, he threw some songs that we may have forgot about that added that much more flavor to the party. EVERYONE talked about how great the DJ and the Music was. I would DEF book him again without a doubt. Thank you again!

You DJ’d the USF OBGYN resident graduation at the Rusty Pelican last year for us and it was a huge hit! Everyone absolutely loved your services and we are hoping to book again for this year.

We booked Kyle & Lisa for our daughter's Sweet 16 celebration after seeing them in action for our friend's daughter's party. Our experience was everything we could've asked for and more! Professional and Energetic from the reservation process to the last song of the night! They were patient with our various requests (A/V requirements, music specific to the program, etc.) and helped to serve as an extension of the hosting.  

My wife and I have both coordinated events professionally for years, so we know the importance of good, competent vendors you can trust. We had high expectations for Party 101 Productions and they met and exceeded them in grand fashion.  

If you're looking for a great DJ service that is committed to working with you to help make your event an EXPERIENCE...then look no further than Party 101 Productions! 

Walter & Charmaine Jennings - Tampa, FL

If you would like a stress free experience then I highly recommend Kyle for your wedding or special event. Kyle brought lighting to help with the ambiance, the music was catered to our crowd, and he was very helpful with the coordination of our wedding by helping with the timeline. Our wedding night carried a nice flow and my wife and I did not have to worry about a thing. Kyle is very professional and easy to communicate with. It was a pleasure to work with Kyle and his assistant, they are very detailed oriented as well. If you want a successful event I Highly recommended Kyle. 

Warmest Regards, 

Brandon & Andrea Hargrove - Plant City, FL

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the wonderful job you did for our Halloween / Wedding event. You guys were awesome!!! Thank you for just rolling with the evening as it unfolded lol.

We weren't sure how the evening would unfold since no one has ever done something like that before Haha. It was an amazing night, and we thank you for making it all the more entertaining.

Kyle & Lisa, I sincerely would like thank you for DJing The Gray 2016 Family Reunion. You had the toddlers to the 80-something year-olds on the floor enjoying themselves. We look forward to 2017. Thanks again.

"Kyle and Lisa were essential to making the event successful and memorable. They were able to bring the event to the next level with the high energy atmosphere."

"Kyle and Lisa were an amazing team! Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary and they did an amazing job! Music was great! Thank you for the memories!!"

Kirsten & Bill Antala - Tampa, FL 

"Dear Kyle, Thank you for DJing for us this Summer! We had a lot of great feedback, and I want to thank you for that!"

Blair Hartley, Marketing Manager Topgolf Tampa - Tampa, FL 

"We hired Kyle based completely on a YouTube video from a Gasparilla event for a local Krewe. Because we are in Texas planning to host an event at a Conference in Tampa FL, that could be a bad thing. But here is the deal, Kyle and Party 101 was professional from start to finish. He kept us informed, did follow up via emails and the inter-active website. It kept us on task, as well. Oh JOY!!! They really helped us pull off a great NFBPA All Chapters Gasparilla Extravaganza at Forum 2015 in Tampa FL. I wish he could bottle his process and sell it! He and his wife (Lisa) have an awesome attitude that comes across in their product, and did I say professional. Great job guys, many blessings and great favor. Thank you so much!!" 

"Kyle is energetic, professional and keeps the party going. Kyle has been our DJ for school events and dances. He and his lovely wife are a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them." 

Kristine Bennett, Proud Principal, Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate High School, Tampa

"Kyle Jackson: The talent, spirit, and music came together in perfect pitch and harmony, striking just the right note. Thank you so very much! As you know, my electric slide still needs a lot of work!" 

Jeffrey Walsh - Saint Leo University - Tampa, FL

"There are not enough words that I can use to describe how thankful I am that Kyle and Lisa were there..... Not only was I able to book his services 4 days before the event this man was able to get all my requests (I had an 80's themed party), get to the venue (in Orlando) and really HOOK IT UP!!!!! The professionalism they displayed and the way he moved the crowd was definetely a hit... Now to book him again for July 2016.......Thanks Kyle!!!"

Amy Calderon - Tampa, FL

"Kyle (accompanied with his lovely wife) have once again met and surpassed my expectations as they DJ'd my daughter's 18th birthday party. I first used Production 101 for my daughter's 16th birthday party which was held in a large place and was fancy. Move forward 2 yrs later and her 18th was held at home in a more casual environment and Kyle and his team adjusted not only to the venue but the environment and they rocked the crowd of teenagers. Even the adults had fun. They came into my home and treated the environment with respect, adapted to the location and made the party fun for 4 straight hours. The music was continous and he knew how to get the crowd always on the dance floor. I highly recommend Productions 101 if you're having a BBQ, elaborate, work-related or any type of party as they are the utmost professionals. I was so impressed that I am available if you'd like to speak with me personally as I know with testimonials one is never sure if it's relatives or friends leaving glowing comments. Nope, I'm not a relative or friend - I am a consumer who is more than happy to honestly rave about the service I received." 

Dana Stannard - Tampa, FL

"No BS. No Hype. The team of Kyle & Lisa, aka Party 101 Productions are the 'TRUTH'! They did our extravaganza how it was supposed to be done. DJ I AM did that 'damn thang'. Lets take it back: Brass Monkey...WHAT!!!!!"

 Ross G - Dover, FL

"Kyle & Lisa are the BEST!!! Everyone at my "50th" birthday party felt that the DJ did everything to keep the crowd moving!!!! I have been to many of Party 101 Productions events and they are always top notch, they are professional and I have recommended Kyle & Lisa to my friends because I only deal with the BEST!!! "You ROCK the party...DJ IAM" 

Kim Agee-Gresham - Dover, FL

"Kyle and his wife rocked the house all night long at our wedding! I been to a lot of weddings and Party 101 is by far the best Dj ever to do a wedding! The energy they brought all night had people dancing all the way to the end of the night! If you want the best in the land please book Party 101! I promise you won't regret it!"

Karingus & Holli Belton - Sarasota, FL

"Kyle and his wife did an amazing job 2 yrs ago for my daughter (Nicole Stannard) 16th birthday party. She's turning 18 and she requested the same DJ."

Dana Stannard - Tampa, FL 

"A shout to Kyle and his wife who DJ'd my companies Annual Halloween event! The crowd loved you! The mix of music played was enjoyed by all generations and personalities at the party. Who doesn't love both James Brown and Pitbull! I have to say the guests truly loved the mix of "Halloween" type songs that were played intermittently as well! Who you gonna call? Typically I would say Ghostbusters, but if you are planning an event it's a MUST to hire Party 101 Productions for your DJ. Not only do the have a great library, but they bring everything required for their set up and their interaction with the crowd is unbeatable! Thanks so much for making our event truly memorable!" 

Melissa Butt for Everest National Insurance Co. - Brandon, FL

"As the Activities Director for a residential community we have huge events constantly. Anytime we need to hire a DJ we always call Kyle because he is always professional, has quality equipment, and can keep our guests going all night long. He always picks the perfect music for each of our parties and our guests always tell us afterwards how amazing the night was because of how much fun the DJ is. I would recommend Party 101 to anyone looking for professional DJ services -- you will not be disappointed!"

Shannon DeMoss for Valencia Lakes - Wimauma, FL

"Special Ed and his accompanying DJ, DJed our wedding. We had a mix of both young and old and wanted gospel music for cocktail hour, R&B/Jazz for dinner, and new and old school urban music to close out the night. They both transitioned from each song seamlessly and kept everyone dancing on the floor. Even the older crowd commented on how amazing the music was. Our reception was also initially behind schedule by 30-40 min. Our DJ's moved things along and allowed us to be back on schedule by mid dinner! Party101 is top notch in professionalism! Kyle is personable and extremely helpful in every step of the process which gave this bride and groom one less thing to worry about. We would definitely recommend Party101 for an affordable, professonal, and amazingly fun experience! Erica and Ne'Andre' Broussard"

Erica and Ne'Andre' Broussard - Brandon, FL

"Kyle and his son, DJed our daughter's 17th birthday and was absolutely phenomenal from months prior to the event up to the very last moment after the event! I will continue to have party 101 DJ any and all future events. I would also tell anyone celebrating an upcoming event to higher party 101, you will be pleased with their outstanding equipment, professionalism, and ready to party attitude. :) thank you so much party 101 for an event never to be forgotten!"

Rebecca Kohler - Plant City, FL

""Truly a night to remember"...Our Wedding reception is one for the books. Our friends and family are still talking about DJ I AM!! DJ I AM, kept the party moving. No one was sitting down. Lots of energy, great music and most importantly very professional!...Thank you for a night to remember."

"I have been the Recreation Specialist for a group home of disabled adults for the last seven years. Since I have been working there I have employed a number of local bands and DJ's for a number of different events. Party 101 Productions is the only one I have hired twice, and I am done shopping around. They have my business. Simply put, they are fantastic!!!"

Joel Yoder, St. Petersburg, FL

"Well done Party 101 Productions! I always like to have GOOD music when holding networking events as it sets the vibe for conversation and the occasional 2-step when your jam comes on. Looking forward to having you in the spot once again." 

Sean Dickerson, President, 100 Black Men of Tampa Bay, Inc.

"Party 101 Productions has played at Valencia Lakes multiple times. The reason being ...DJ I AM knows how to move the crowd. My residents love when Party 101 comes to Valencia Lakes. Pleasing a crowd 55 and over isn't easy but when you're gifted, talented & a Professional like DJ I AM, keeping the crowd on their feet comes natural. Kyle knows how to feel out the crowd. Most importantly he makes my residents feel young again. If you're looking for a DJ you can trust to make your next event a success, Party 101 Productions is definitely for you! Thank you KYLE, See you on Saturday, October 27th for our Monster Mash Bash Halloween Party"

Ava Sullivan (Activities Director Valencia Lakes) -Wimauma, FL

"Party 101 Productions, DJ I AM did a wonderful job at the Annual 2012 King-Parker Family Reunion in Winter Haven, Florida. It was unbelieveable how Kyle got the young children (ages 5-10) involved in the Soul Train Line. The scheduled Talent Show was delayed because no one wanted to leave the dance floor or stop the music. However, Kyle was instrumental in smoothly transitioning to the talent show and then back to the music. My mom and I got so many compliments about the wonderful time the family had that night. We took a little bit of the credit, but made sure the family knew Party 101 Productions was the reason the evening was a blast. This is the third time, Party 101 Productions has made my event an all night party zone and extremely fun. I recommend them to anyone anywhere, they'll come to you. Kyle and Lisa Jackson are wonderful, professional, they're in tune with the industry, know the business and are very personable. See You Soon Party 101 Productions this time in Richmond, Virginia (June 2013)." 

Tracy King, Richmond, Virginia (Florida)

"Party 101 Productions, are definitely the best DJs in the Tampa, St Pete area!!! Everyone had an awesome time at my wedding! Every aspect of their business is very professional. The website, the music quality, Kyle's voice and their knowledge of weddings made my event rock!!! Young, old and even the children where having an awesome time. Being from the NY/NJ area we had very high standards, and the Party 101 Productions team surely did not disappoint us. They assured us that everything would run smoothly and it did. Lisa and Kyle, thanks a million!! Your team made my wedding a hit! All of my guests are saying they had so much fun dancing the night away. We were sad when it all came to an end. I highly recommend this dynamic, versatile and professional DJ. My husband and I wish you both much success."

Allison & Corey Thomas, Matawan NJ

"All I can say is WOW! Party 101 Productions is by far, one of the most professional organizations I have EVER had the pleasure of doing business with. As the wedding planner for my best friend's wedding, I was charged with, and gladly accepted the responsibility of ensuring that her day was flawless. I did not book the original DJ (Who came on a personal reference from a member of the wedding party) but after having the opportunity to speak with him personally, I was not left with a sense of confidence. Not being a resident of the Tampa/St Pete area (I reside in Atlanta, GA), I was at a distinct dis-advantage because I could not go to hear the DJ's that were available. But just like Superman and Wonder woman (Cape's flying in the wind behind them!) Kyle and Lisa came to my rescue SEVEN (count them, seven) days before the wedding. From the initial contact, Kyle calmed my nerves and gave me that sense of confidence that I was looking for. All of the contact prior to the event was made in a professional format, and they even reminded me of a few of those "little things" that we tend to forget. Finally, the day arrived and they did not disappoint me at all. The music was very appropriate, the presentation was awesome, and Kyle has an amazing voice. Kudo's to Lisa as well, as she is right by his side contributing to the success. The Bride and Groom were extremely pleased, and you made the wedding Planner (ME) look good. I adore the Party 101 Productions team, and would recommend them to anyone for any type of event. Their versatility is unimaginable. Thank you guys so much for making the wedding reception memorable for all, but especially the bride and groom." 

Christian Houston, Atlanta, GA

"My daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday party was being planned for 2 years and the evening had to be fun and go off without a hitch or I would have been disappointed. I was hesitant about hiring a DJ without having heard them play first and it was with a tinge of nervousness that I contracted with Party 101 Productions. My decision while based on the positive reviews posted, truth be told I was a little sceptical that the reviews may have been biased. How wrong I was, and how glad I am that I went with my gut !!! Kyle and his team were consummate professionals from the first contact, never deviating until the end of the party. Every one of my numerous questions were answered during the planning stages in a timely and "no problem" manner. During the event Kyle, being the professional that he is adapted and had available "caribbean" songs that were requested and not on the playlist. That was amazing and showed me and our guests that he is prepared for the unexpected. The event was semi-formal/formal and Kyle and his team came dressed for the occasion. He included every child in the fun and got the shy ones on the floor with ease and without drawing undue attention to them. He demonstrated a knack for dealing with teenagers and adults alike in making sure the party mood was in sync with the planned events throughout the evening. When dinner was served, he modified the music, made sure the kids were hydrated by reminding them to pick up their glasses when he noticed some stayed for hours on the floor. He was intuned with the shifting energy of the guests and seamlessly and with success kept the music aligned so that there was never a gap in dancing, singing along or pumping up those kids. When you book Party 101 Productions you get a professional team who manages the music well, create the environment you requested and does it seamlessly and with professional flair. Once Party 101 Productions were on board, I was able to enjoy my daughter's special day watching the smile on her face and hearing her friends tell her that "this was the best party ever". Thank you Kyle and the team from Party 101 Productions!!! P.S. Being a one-stop party supply destination was also a hit and convenient. Please browse their party supplies - I can attest that their prices and quality are the best you'll find on the internet."

Dana Stannard, Tampa, FL

"Party 101 Productions did an amazing job at Brooks DeBartolo's prom. The students said they were the best DJ that the school has ever had. They made the event a wonderful time for all. Thanks!!!" 

Cheryl Fernandez, Tampa, FL

"We hired Party 101 Productions for our daughter's 80's themed birthday party and boy did those girls have a fabulous time!!! They dressed in their best 80's fashion (think big hair, leg warmers and neon colors!), talked in their best 80's valley girl talk, had a limbo contest, a hula-hoop contest and danced the whole time! Kyle and Lisa were so great with the kids! There was no inappropriate music but still enough good music to keep everyone excited! The parents even got included in some dancing fun! Overall, it was an awesome party that will be hard to top next year! Thank you Kyle and Lisa for putting on such a fun filled party for our daughter!"

Darren & Jenni Bridges, Brooksville, FL

"Kyle & Lisa did an awesome job at our wedding. They had everyone up and dancing and were very accommodating to all guest requests. They had lots of energy and were loved by everyone at the party. My husband and I would highly recommend them to anyone!!! Thanks guys!!!"

Rich & Marianna Skepkowski, St. Pete Beach, FL

"Kyle and Lisa did an AMAZING job at my company’s first offsite holiday party. Our employees and especially our C-level executives were impressed with Kyle’s talent of keeping the crowd going as well as helping us out with the holiday games and prizes. Party 101 Productions will be my first choice for both company and personal parties going forward. The feedback following the holiday party was overwhelming! The employees raved about how smooth Kyle handled some awkward situations such as the company’s favorite holiday game…BINGO. Because of his experience and talent, he was able to transition the game from dud to party-mode. Kyle promised that Party 101 Productions would not disappoint…and he was right! If you’re looking for a party to remember - - Party 101 Productions is your answer!"

Sara Sayasane - Aspire Financial Services, Tampa FL

"Kyle came highly recommended and WOW we cannot wait to have him back again. He really blew my residents away! Kyle and Lisa really know how to play to the crowd (and this crowd isn't easy to please). They made my Halloween Party a complete success. I have NEVER seen my residents jump around the way they did at this years "Valencia Lakes Haunted Mansion Halloween Party". Kyle had my dance floor packed ALL night long! It truly felt like a "club atmosphere" and the special lighting he provided was spectacular. Kyle & Lisa, thank you so much, I look forward to having you guys back at Valencia Lakes very soon. My residents talked about it for weeks, they loved it! Party 101 Productions Rocks!"

Ava Sullivan, Activities Director, Valencia Lakes, Wimauma FL

"Dear Lisa and Kyle,

WOOOOW! As you both probably know by now, I am NEVER at a loss for words. . .but, you two have managed to do the impossible -- I am left blown away and speechless by Party101 Productions and DJ I AM!!

From the moment I contacted Party101, I had an instant connection and sense that DJ I AM knew in a few brief seconds exactly what we were looking for in a wedding DJ. Altough my venue had a number of qualified DJs on their frequent vendor list, I decided to hire Party 101 and I, and my guests, are so glad we did!!

DJ I AM is that "very rare" find - a "wedding DJ" that is also a masterful "party DJ"!! Believe me, I put a lot of time and energy into researching and interviewing DJs. Some party DJs can provide the right party/club vibe, but can't do the formal announcing and specific wedding activities. Many wedding DJs can do the formal announcing and wedding specifics, but can't seem to actually get a "party vibe" for the reception. Party101 is the complete and total package on this front!! DJ I AM voice was "rich, sexy and booming" without being canned or cheesy and his switch into that party/club DJ vibe was awesome.

I appreciate that Party101 is a full service DJ company. For brides who need a lot of extra guidance during the planning process, I love that each client gets their own personal planning pages, which include things many don't think about -- like play and don't play lists, specialty songs for cake cutting, toasts, etc. However, having said that the best part for me is that Party 101 NEVER felt like a one-size fit all DJ. I felt like you all really took the time to understand what it was we were trying to achieve -- even when we weren't clear what we wanted!! (LOL!)

I am further blown away by DJ I AM and Lisa's ability to "read" the guests and the wedding situation in general. I don't have to remind you, but the day of the wedding did not get off to the best start! Because of the 65 mph winds off the bay and the pouring rain, the entire ceremony and reception had to be moved at the "7th hour" underneath a tent. It is my understanding that by the time you all arrived, the tent had just recently been resecured. Nevertheless, you all rolled with the tide and set up accordingly, and was in no way rattled by the last minute changes. I sincerely appreciate the fact that DJ I AM is so talented a DJ as to be able to think on his feet!! We all know that weddings are rarely without their glitches and hiccups; unfortunately, most DJs go with script and are never able to adjust. However, between the two of you, you were able to follow and read the situation(s) perfectly and adjust accordingly. So, if the timeline called for "a toast" but we were actually "cutting cake" -- you were able to follow the flow and adapt accordingly -- and that is truly rare!!

EVERY guest . . . and I know sometime thank you letters over-embellish, but "every" guest RAVED about the DJ!! There were actually "live tweets" that night tweeting about the "cold ass party; DJ of the chain"! (lol) Although I would never recommend your other clients wait to the last minute to finalize their music, I am still impressed that you were able to customize and put together such a FANTASTIC reception and party/club play list since we did in fact not firm up everything until the night before! Also, it was not lost on me that once again, in your professional expertise, you were able to even add songs that were not on the play list or even discussed, but you did so because you were able to "read the crowd" and knew instinctly what to play and when. The "James Brown" stuff was classic and appreciated by all -- young and old.

We had what I consider to be a pretty wide range of ages in our guest attendance -- several 25 & under, lots of 30-36s; 40-50 and quite a few 55 & up . . . Yet, everybody was on the dance floor. I cannot tell you how many guests have commented on how this was the first wedding they have been to in a long time where "people actually danced"! I haven't been to a lot of weddings recently, so I was not aware that people simply do not dance a lot at weddings. Well, this was not the case!! Everyone talked about the dancing even the photographer commented on how many people were dancing and how great the DJ was. (by the way the photographer, Limelight, is a HUGE Sarasota vendor favorite and I can tell you. . . she was SO feeling yall - so I suspect she won't hesitate to pass your name along -- cuz she went on and on about how this was one of her favorite weddings she has shot and attended in a long time! As a matter of fact she stayed an hour over -- at no charge, since she was having such a good time)!

We wanted a "party", club vibe for our reception and you achieved that and more!! The DJ light show was right on the money and could not have been better. People would have sworn they were in NY and not in Sarasota on the Bay!! Also, the fact that you never had the opportunity to meet or talk to the Bride or Groom before the wedding or reception, but yet was able to "capture" their personalities and incorporate that into how you related to their guests is beyond amazing. Ozzie is by nature a "performer" (having been a "drum major" at an HBCU) and a cut up -- an you had him pegged on that Garter Toss!! Everyone is talking about that and wanted to know "when you all had time to practice it"! (I kid you not). That was a classic and I wish someone had taped it -- it would have made an awesome P101 clip on Gigmasters!! When you told him to "go in smooth" that was TREMENDOUSLY righteous!!

Clearly, I cannot say enough about Party101 featuring DJ I AM! And, I would be totally remiss if I did not specifically mention his equally beautiful and talented wife and assistant. How special it was to watch this lovely couple work a wedding together as a team! It is so funny, all our guests keep telling us what a geat wedding and "party" it was!! Very few people leave a wedding and categorize it as a "party". Also, as you may have gathered from things, the majority of the guests were family and friends of Ozzie who traveled from Chicago and Memphis and they loved every aspect of the wedding and have been blowing my phone and email up with compliment after compliment. Whenever, they speak of you two and the wonderful DJ, I am like some proud aunt or cousin. . . like, "yea -- that's my peeps! They did they thang!!"

If I can ever, ever do anything for Party101 or the two of you, please do not hesitate to contact me. My husband is a man of few words (the opposite of me) and he cannot say enough about the two of you. He insisted on tipping you and would love to have you all over some time. I am sure you don't normally hang out with clients afterwards, but my husband insists that he and Kyle need to share a couple of scotches together some time!! I am an excellent cook and would love to have you two over!!

I am so sorry for such a long letter, but my heart is truly full and overwhelmed right now. Needless to say, things did not go exactly how I planned, but you TWO were the glue that held everything together!! From the love songs at Cocktail Hour to everything right up to the last second, you were SPOT on!! A true class act. I think you all may very well be Tampa's and the surrounding area's, best kept entertainment secret!! If you look back at my past emails, I kept saying how proud I was to present your talents to our guests. . . and it's true -- I could not have been more proud.

From the bottom of my heart . . . THANK YOU, Kyle and Lisa!


Bernadette Walker-Upton, Wesley Chapel FL

"Charlie Chase was an excellent DJ!! Everyone at the party loved him! We will likely be using him again!!"

Taylor Alberdi, Clearwater FL

"Party 101 Productions were our last minute miracle! After a previously contracted DJ company failed to keep its commitment, Kyle stepped in. Our guests were very impressed with their professionalism, great personailites and ability to guage the mood of the crowd and adjust accordingly! Great job guys-look forward to working together again!"

Roxanne Bartley, Tampa FL

"Without your music, I don't think my party (Quinceanara) would have been fun! That was by far the best party I have ever planned and it would not have been a success without the help of Party 101 Productions. Thank you again for Everything!! 

Florence Olavarria, Tampa FL

"My husband and I were really nervous about selecting a DJ. I researched many and still felt unsure because I had always heard the scary stories about horrible DJ's. Then, we actually attended a wedding in which Kyle Jackson, DJ and owner of Party 101 Productions, was preforming. I loved him and his wife Lisa! They were wonderful! The next Monday I booked with them and it was one of the best choices I made while planning the wedding. All night friends and family were asking where I found them. Another bonus to working with them is that Lisa is so helpful. The professionalism was outstanding. From Bride to Bride, go with them! They are truly amazing."

"Thank You Party 101 Productions!! Crystal and I had a great time as we renewed our wedding vows for our 15th year anniversary. You and your wife were very professional and accommodating to our guests. The guests gave us so many compliments on the DJ and his Wife. Crystal and I felt at ease as Kyle and Lisa made our evening relaxing and stress free. The music selection was great and Kyle played to the crowd. Booking Party 101 Productions was money well spent, I would recommend your service over and over again. Thanks Kyle and Lisa for making our day special, we couldn't have done it without you."

"Thank you Party 101 Productions for your great music, excellent service and for weathering the cold to make our recent bar party a hit! Lisa did an excellent job in coordinating Party 101 Productions' appearance at our event; her attention to detail was top-notch! Kyle kept the tunes playing and was right on point with song selections that catered to our crowd! Party 101 Productions definitely knows how to add a touch of class to an event with an awesome setup (not your ordinary turntable and speakers arrangement), lighting ambiance and much more! Thank you again Kyle and Lisa! I look forward to using you again in the future!"

LaKisha M. Kinsey-Sallis, Florida Bar Association, Tampa, FL

"I met with our PTA & school admin. yesterday & we all agreed that we were VERY pleased with your services at our Snowball Dance. Lisa did a great job coordinating services for the event. Kyle is a great DJ, he did a great job with the music selection and variety, he also did a great job controling the atmosphere & engaging the kids. This had to be one of our best evening dances! Thanks again & we are looking forward to having you perform at our next dance."

Christi Tillman, Mulberry Middle PTSA President, Mulberry,FL

"We used Kyle and Lisa for a bar association holiday party, and the service was excellent! The music was great and appropriate for all in attendance, and somehow Kyle knew exactly what to play and when to play it to keep the party going! I will absolutely use Party 101 Productions again and would refer them to any organization in need of a good DJ who understands his crowd. Thanks Kyle!"

Kamilah Perry, George Edgecomb Bar Association, Tampa, FL

"Kyle and Lisa were instrumental in making our son's Bar Mitzvah party a smashing success! Their Party Planning Page made it very easy to submit a timeline and song selections, but they also personally walked me through the process as it was my first time ever hosting an event like this, and I wasn't quite sure about how to proceed. Kyle and Lisa managed to play the right music to entertain the adults and the kids of all ages. They kept the kids occupied with lots of games and activities, facilitated by Charlie, the Bar Mitzvah MC. Charlie was phenomenal. Many people have been remarking to me since the event how wonderful the DJ's were and how much fun they had. Thank you Party 101!!"

Monica and John Caldwell, Bradenton, FL

"My overall experience was wonderful! My 50th birthay was beautiful and the music was perfect. DJ I AM and his beautiful wife were not only very professional, but funny and entertaining. Everyone was truly pleased with the selections of songs. When ever another party comes up we will definitely call them! Thank you again."

Sharon & Danny Evans, Tampa, FL

"THANK YOU Party 101 Productions for a GREAT event!!! The level of professionalism was off the charts! I can't thank DJ I AM & DJ Lady J enough for making the entertainment at our Wedding amazing. The music was excellent and Party 101 kept the crowd moving all night. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that they did a fantastic job. We appreciate their services and we recommend them to anyone wanting great entertainment for an event. Once again THANKS Party 101 Productions!!"

Bobbie & Kayla Faust, Tampa, FL

"To be honest, we were a little skeptical about booking a DJ for our wedding after being a part of some horror stories. Initially, we were going to rely on an iPod, but we became a little worried about what would happen if the equipment failed us. You can't have a party without music, right? We decided to book DJ Charlie Chase, and he absolutely delivered a phenomenal party for us. He was professional and fun. Many of our friends said it was the best wedding they ever attended. DJ Charlie Chase listened to us and delivered as promised. He even included some pretty obscure songs we requested for the dinner music. I would recommend him to anyone I know."

Kristy & Fredrik Tucker, Dunedin, FL

"Lisa & Kyle, WOW! What an outstanding, professional, fun time you created for our kids' wedding reception October 3rd, 2010. The event started with a little chaos (our issues) but the two of you rose to the occasion and professionally kept things moving. Thank you so much for that. You both are adorable and I can't wait for our next fun event so we can ask you to be a part of it, too! Thanks again! (mother of the bride) Suzan Johnston."

Suzan & Damon Johnston, Land o' Lakes, FL

"Kyle & Lisa did an absolutely WONDERFUL job at our wedding reception on July 17, 2010. 5 STARS without a doubt!!! They kept us on track, and kept the party going non-stop. We greatly appreciate their professionalism. They took the time to e-mail and call in advance to make sure they had the correct pronunciations for our bridal party names, they clarified the timing of events, and they even helped us with song selections. Kyle made sure that our wedding was exactly what we wanted. Party 101 Productions helped make our wedding day so wonderful and unforgettable! I would recommend this company to anyone, and for any occasion!! If you want to have a great party BOOK Kyle & Lisa with Party 101 Productions without a doubt!!! Thanks again, you guys are the best!!!!!!!"

Lisa & Jason Rodriguez, Tampa, FL

"My wedding was on June 26, 2010. Unfortunately my husband’s aunt passed away and due to the funeral we had to adjust our wedding plans and all of our wedding vendors. Our previous DJ could not accommodate us and let me tell you that Party 101 Productions & DJ I AM within 24 hours stepped up and saved the day!!! We REALLY do appreciate what you and your company did to assist our family in our time of need!! You had all the songs that I requested and our wedding was WONDERFUL. My family and I enjoyed every moment of it. WAY TO GO!! Thank you and may God continue to bless you and all your future endeavors!" 

Ronnie & Katrina Washington, Valrico, FL

"What a wonderful surprise to have found Party 101 Productions through an online search. It was immediately evident that Kyle and Lisa were wonderful people, but their level of professionalism and ability to cater to the crowd was very impressive. Although my daughter's sweet sixteen was not a large party it sure was a blast largely due to the music! It was truly a pleasure to work with you and I look forward to passing your name along!"

Ronni Ulrich, Wesley Chapel, FL

"This is the second time I have used Party101Productions featuring DJ I AM for an event. As usual, the performance by DJ I AM was amazing!! He had everyone on the dance floor, young and old. I had a few special requests during the party; and Kyle turned into the greatest MC ever. I even told him don't ask me what I want, I trust you!!!! Not very often can you hire a dj and know that he can read the audience, but he did. All my guest were impressed with the music, his professionalism and of course his willingness to oblige all request. There is no doubt that my next party and every other party will include Party101Productions and DJ I AM!!!"

Rita & John Small, Valrico, FL

"Kyle and Lisa Jackson did a fantastic job at our wedding and reception. They took the time to meet with us in person several times prior to our wedding and go over song requests, genres of music we liked, the names of the bridal party, and they even went to the venue to run a sound check a month prior!! Honestly every single one of our guests were on the dance floor, and they are still talking about it two weeks later. Party 101 Productions was very professional, courteous and kept the party going from start to finish. Thank you Kyle and Lisa for making our day awesome."

Justin & Katherine Hook, Bradenton, FL

"Party 101 Productions/DJ I AM presented in the most professional, respectful and caring manner to the guests of our wedding.

DJ I AM really kept the party alive and fun. I would definitely recommend Party 101 Productions/ DJ I AM to others in need of this service. There is no doubt that I would request their service in the furture. DJ I AM did a job well done. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Tracey King, Richmond, VA

"We hired a Party 101 Productions DJ for a Sweet 16 B-Day Party and they did a great job of keeping everyone involved. They were very friendly and helpful, that was a plus because it was the first event we hosted with a DJ. Next time we need a DJ or know someone who does we would recommend them in a heartbeat. Our daughter and her friends have on numerous occasions expressed how much fun they had and we attribute a large part of that to the DJ. We are very grateful."

Lisa & Ernie Christman, Hernando, FL

Julia Barnes, Clearwater, FL

"We had a vision of how we hoped the evening would be for our son's Mitzvah. You brought our vision to life and then some. You exceeded our expectations... Our night was perfect and all who were there are still raving (adults & children alike). Thanks!"

Joshua & Ida Roth, New York, NY

"Having the Party 101 crew at my New Year's Eve Party was the best decision I could have made for a DJ. Not only were they truly professional, every song that my guests and I asked to be played at the party was played, and they had us dancing all night long. I was very pleased at how easy it was to find such a great DJ, and I hope to have DJ I AM at my next party. They absolutely made this a very enjoyable experience and helped to make the party a huge success! Thank you for a great time!!!!"

Miriam Rodriguez, Miami, FL

"I chose Party 101 because of the testimonials and the variety of gigs they performed at. I am happy to report that I agree with the wonderful things that other happy partygoers said about them. Kyle was very communicative from the very beginning by telephone and email. I emailed him a list of music and he really accomodated me and my guests. He is really observant and knew what music would get the crowd to their feet and encouraged the guests without taking over the party. I danced all night and had a terrific time. He helped to make turning 50 easy!! My guests and I will have him play at future events and will highly recommend him for every type of party."

Tracey Moore, Orlando, FL

"The Party 101 crew did such a great job that people are still talking about how good the music was at the after-party and how much they danced. One of my guests said that the music was phenomenal and I agree. I would definately hire them again."

Sheila K., Bronx, NY

"We are so glad that we went online and found Party 101 Productions. They were outstanding with their professionalism and accommodations for our wedding ceremony.

If you need a deejay with an MC, we would definitely recommend their services to anyone who needs them. We definitely would use them again in the future."

"We planned a Christmas party for the office I work at. We were not sure if we would have enough funds to hire a DJ. Well, we waited until the last minute and found that there were no DJ’s available. I was online and came across party101 productions. We spoke to DJ I AM and explained our delimma. He was very and professional. He didn’t have a dj available for that night so he said he would be happy to be our dj for the evening. Wow, what a life saver!!!! He was fantastic and had the party going the entire time. Everyone was still talking about the dj days after the event. Thank you party101 productions and DJ I AM for the best party we have had in a long time!"
