Just a sample of what some of my customers have posted on my Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/dj-kenfused-san-francisco. I always greatly appreciate anyone taking the time out to do this for me, and I would be eternally grateful if any satisfied clients and guests would please do the same. If you're not a Yelper, you can just send a short blurb via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Basically, Ken is awesome. Really awesome. So awesome that I'm trying to figure out events where I can hire him again to DJ. Is it too much to DJ at a baby shower? hm.
Anyways, now. I'm. gonna. blow. you. away.
First of all, a friend of mine got married on June 21st, 2008. It was about one year before my wedding and I was overwhelmed with who to choose as a DJ. When I asked her for any recommendations, she immediately said "You HAVE to hire DJ Ken Anolin. He is SO FUNNY. He is SO GOOD". I'll never forget that she had these huge eyes and big smile when she said this to me. I was sold right there.
See, the thing is. I'm a picky person. Like, very picky perfectionist failure-is-not-an-option kind of person. And being that, it was going to be my wedding. Oh man. Had to be perfect.
My wedding was Oct. 3, 2009. Anyways, from beginning to end, Ken is professional, responsible, hilarious and SO creative (with song choice). I mean, this is the kind of person you want in every type of business. My husband was instantly sold when Ken suggested to play a particular sports "theme song" for the garter toss. Its a very manly melody, but I don't want to say (because of Ken's competitors might be reading this). After Ken's suggestion, my husband calls me later and says "we HAVE to book him. He made such a great suggestion for the garter toss song". Ken answered all my emails so quickly. He answered all my neurotic questions. He reassured me that everything was going to be fine. He was so patient in waiting for my exceptionally long list of songs (hey man, my husband is even pickier with songs than I am!). He also arrived 2+ hours before the dinner reception time and finished set up quickly. I was so happy to see him planning everything ahead. He already had music playing while guests started to arrive. He followed my dinner reception itinerary, which gave the estimated time of when to announce which event. Of course, he has the laptop-to-system hookup for the slideshow music. If you need a host/emcee, look no further. Ken is a very funny and engaging emcee. You can tell that he enjoys being a DJ. Everyone had such a great time. Lets just say that the music got our guests pumped up SO much that my photographer was able to catch many upon many amusing photos of our wedding guests tearing up the dance floor. Thats how good Ken is. Where your photographer can get those "blackmail" hilarious photos because that one usually quiet groomsmen decides to freak all the ladies on the dance floor. Thanks Ken. Thats all you, man. Well, maybe a little champagne was involved too. lol.
Can you believe it? A wedding vendor completely free of any stress! Believe me, during the wedding planning, Ken made things so much easier for me because he is SO responsible and professional.
And you know what. I'm not even finished!
Guess what? I referred him to my other friend for her wedding and she booked him too! Her wedding (June 2009) was a complicated one because it was at Villa Montalvo. If you've ever been to a wedding there, you'll soon find out the complicated nature of multiple rooms that all need music. Somehow, Ken was able to organize a network of linked multiple speakers in multiple rooms, all playing music simultaneously. And these multiple rooms have tons of stairs and other obstacles in between the ceremony's garden area, the appetizer fountain area and the dinner reception patio area. Thats really going above and beyond. Ken is a genius and it still amazes me how he was able to handle that wedding. And this friend is the type of friend who would complain if she was unhappy. She didn't complain. She was very pleased.
So there you go. 3 weddings done by Ken. All well done. 3 happy brides. Thanks Ken! You're a lifesaver.

Kenfused is the best. He was able to get all the songs we requested from him and was not offended when we asked him to be our human jukebox for the cocktail hour and dinner part of our wedding. When it came to the dancing portion we trusted him to do his thing and told him to keep the dance floor packed, and he came through huge. We can't thank him enough for his services.
Our site was a very demanding outdoor venue and Ken made sure everything went off without a hitch. He is the man and very professional, would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thanks so much Ken for helping make our wedding day the one we imagined.

DJ Kenfused did our wedding ceremony and reception. He was a great dj, played everything we wanted, our guests enjoyed him, and best of all, he did it with a great smile and kept the crowd involved. Prior to, he was very professional and did his best to contact us and see what we wanted, the options of events, he had it all. I'd recommend him for any kind of event, he will make yours a special day to remember. Thank you for making ours special!

For our wedding reception DJ KenFused kept our guests into it! The crowd loved him! He played everything from salsa to oldies. During the business aspect DJ Ken is very professional and reliable. Definitely one of the best in the business.

We're so fortunate to have found Ken. We ended up booking in him about two weeks prior to our wedding and it was perhaps the best decision we could have made. In hindsight, I couldn't imagine not having him there. He ended up providing music and sound at both the ceremony and the reception, which were at 2 separate locations in Sonoma. Both young and old alike loved him, as he played both hits and classics in that perfect intertwined way that only a seasoned DJ can do. He's the consummate professional and artist.

DJ KenFused recently did our son's Bar Mitzvah and he was amazing!!!!
He got ALL the young people dancing and a lot of the adults.
Everybody had a fantastic time and is still talking about it.
He was super friendly and professional throughout the whole process.
I would recommend him without hesitation, with DJ KenFused you will not have to worry about getting the party started and keep it going.

DJ KenFused made the night unforgettable.
We held a private party at our University in Oakland, and this DJ really did a great job. From Hip-Hop to Electronica, the music was fantastic, the sound loud and clear, and the people was dancing until the end the event.
Good thing about DJ KenFused is that he is really easy to work with, always available, and he just is a very nice guy.
I recommend his services from all types of events!

Not only did he add life to the party with his diverse mix of dance music, but he also gave special meaning to my Dad's retirement party, with his thoughtful quotes and engaging personality as an Emcee.

...His entertaining and likeable personality was very fitting as our MC. As our DJ, he knew how to please the various age groups and brought us all back to our favorite era...for the moment."
