We are so glad we booked SpotlightLA for our daughter’s bat mitzvah!! MC Kelly and DJ Jon were fantastic and knew how to get our guests on the dance floor…kept the party moving with great variety of dance songs and fun activities for the kids. Before finding SpotlightLA, we were really turned off meeting with other DJ’s/MC’s that can be over the top and cheesy…MC Kelly had exactly the right amount of energy…she was so much fun and very professional!! The entire SpotlightLA company was so hands-on with the planning, and keeping me organized leading up to the big day! Very attentive and helpful!! Without a doubt we will be using SpotlightLA again…highly, highly recommend them!! – Joanna Cooper

Kelly and Joel, Boy does everything happen for a reason! I cannot tell you how grateful my whole family was to have Kelly at Ashley’s Bat Mitzvah. Kelly, my girls want you as a friend for life! Kelly made the party the MOST fantastic party ever. We practically had to kick everyone off the dance floor. Kelly, thank you for rolling with the punches, and my panic when I got to the club. You made everything ok and just perfect. Even the security guard came up to me to tell me it was a great party!! Kelly, you’re a rare find. You’re so talented and have a great way with people. Also a big thanks to the dancers. They were so nice and so fun. Looking forward to having you at Ava’s party!! xo Stacy

“We’ve been to a lot of Bar Mitzvahs and I can honestly say, clearly, that with Joel as our MC this was the best party that we’ve ever been to. We love SpotlightLA. They made our party phenomenal. We put our trust in him and he came through completely. We’ll definitely use him again for our next mitzvah in 2015.”

“We had the best B’nai Mitzvah ever! There were always surprises… All of our friends came up and said it was an awesome party. This was the first bar mitzvah that I heard from all the kids that nobody left the room, not for once. A lot had to do with the communication with the DJ. We interviewed 6 DJ’s and went with Joel and Spotlight!”

Dear Mike and Joel, I want you both to know how much we enjoyed working with you on the Litvack event.  Michael, you were such a great MC, held it all together, and with wonderful style too!  It was a bit of a tricky event, but you pulled it off seamlessly.  Everyone had such a wonderful time—especially our client!  Thank you so much.

Thank you for a great weekend. Appreciate all your help. It was a wonderful success. Mostly to do with your high energy, professionalism, your positiveness and overall faith. You’re the greatest. I will definitely keep you on the top of our list for anyone looking for an “A” #1 MC. You’re the best.

Spotlight LA brought Hollywood to San Diego – and did so seamlessly! It was easy and fun talking and planning our party with Joel on FaceTime, and no detail was missed leading up to or at the party. I knew from attending parties in Los Angeles that Joel and his team would bring unmatched enthusiasm and ideas to our event in San Diego – what I didn’t know, but was glad to find out, was how simple Spotlight LA makes it for their out of town clients. Joel – You are the best! Thanks for making Megan’s special night even more special.

The most amazing Bat Mitzvah party with Joel and SpotlightLA. We had the best time. Everybody from the 1 year old to the 75 year old. He rocked it out! We are thrilled and so are our guests. Thank you!

“It met more than my expectations. Spotlight delivered everything and MORE. It was a very special night. The experience you had of when to do things and how to wing it when necessary was very important in addition to the planning itself. April 2014, we want you back!”

Wow. We interviewed many DJ’s for Jesse’s Bar Mitzvah, but we were blown away by SpotlightLA.  They listened to us and accommodated us.  The event was more than perfect. We are now booking them for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. GO SPOTLIGHTLA!!!

From the time I contacted Joel I knew I had chosen the right company to DJ my son’s Bar Mitzvah Party.  They checked in with us regularly to see how the party planning was going and if we needed any help.  At the party, our team was wonderful.  Everyone had a fun time.

Joel and his SpotlightLA crew were awesome!  Joel got the party started and kept it going for hours!  My son and all of his friends loved the music and activities – it was really perfect.  Also, before the event, he took the time to meet with my son and our family to get to know us and was sensitive to my son’s personality since it was his Bar Mitzvah party.  I will totally use Joel for my twins’ B’Nai Mitzvah in a couple of years and I highly recommend him for any event.  Thanks, Joel, for a day we’ll remember forever!

Wow, what can I say…you and your team were amazing…it was such a great party and everyone had a terrific time!  Can’t say enough great things…maybe only that I wish I hadn’t danced so much and maybe TALKED to some of my guests!  But I couldn’t help it…it was so fun!  Jordan also had a terrific time and just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all your effort and hard work…Take care and we will see you at the next one!

Joel and Mike did a great job at our wedding.  They were very well organized, and everything went perfectly.  Our guests are still raving about how much fun they had.  We highly recommend SpotlightLA, if you want to have the best time at your event.

SpotlightLA was the HIGHLIGHT of our party.  Joel was a doll & a pleasure to work with.  Very organized & experienced and that’s what I liked the most.  Everybody called us the next day to complement us about the wonderful party & the fantastic music.  For us the music & the food are the two most important keys for the best party & I know we accomplished our goal.  Everybody was dancing, even the ones that said they do not dance.  Next year is my other daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and we are signing another contract with SpotlightLA.  I will never have another party without them!

Joel did a fabulous job.  Guests are still complimenting his performance.  The next time I need a DJ, whenever it is, I hope he is still in business.  I’m going to recommend him to Brentwood Country Club.

Dear Joel, Thanks for taking the time to get me the link.  I love it!  What a neat way to both remember the day, and have some fun photos of family and friends.  Your guys were wonderful the day of the event, patient and fun.  Thanks for providing such a unique service!

Hi Joel, I wanted to thank you for coming to our house last week. Jonah LOVES you and he’s pretty picky. I feel very secure in knowing that Spotlight is handling our affair. I also wanted to tell you to not to listen to my input. You obviously know what you are doing and I don’t want to mess with the magic, if you know what I mean. Thanks again!

I just want to tell you that I am so pleased that we picked SpotlightLA as our DJ company. It was a great night and I had so much fun. I even liked the dancers! The lights were amazing as well. I am glad that I was so picky and interviewed 6 other DJ companies before finding you 🙂 I look forward to working with you again. If you ever need me as a referral source please don’t hesitate to let me know. Hava Alloun

Naturally being that my first born son was Bar Mitzvah we wanted everything to be perfect.  I had hired a DJ 2 1/2 years in advance and fired him 7 months before our event. Luck and faith was on our side.  I had heard SpotlightLA was fantastic and I should of called them first!  We struck gold.  They had just received a date change and they had an opening.  We know there are 3 things that make a party.  The most important being the entertainment.  Not one person sat down the entire night. The MC, Mike was fantastic as well as his amazing crew.  We knew from the first phone call with Joel that we had made the right decision.  Spotlight is not just a entertainment company they are a family.  They understand our needs and concerns.  I will never do another party without them.  Trust me, you will not be sorry.  Thanks everyone, it was a great success because of you!

“Dear Joel, I can’t express how incredibly terrific you and your spotlight crew were! You outdid yourself and exceeded any and all expectations! The party atmosphere that you helped create will remain an everlasting memory for my family and me, especially Jared. Other guests have not stopped talking about how much fun they had that evening. Thank you for all of your work, enthusiasm, and most of all your friendship. Please tell Andrew that his graphics were awesome! Many thanks again for making Jared feel like a rockstar! All my best to Andrew, and the rest of the crew. My best wishes, Marjie “

I have just returned to London, England after visiting my family and attending to our Niece’s Bat Mitzvah and I felt compelled to write this message.  I firstly want to say a big thank you to everyone at SpotlightLA for making this event the best Bat Mitzvah our family has attended.  In London the entertainment is not generally a big part of the function and I have never experienced anything like you guys have done.  The whole night was fantastic, and I have never heard so many people comment how amazing a party you guys have given us.  The staff were all very friendly and it will take a lot to beat this sort of service.  Once again thank you so much, and we wish you every success to your company in the future.

Thank you so much SpotlightLA.  Michael was the BEST!  He really understood what I was looking for.  We love him and so did all my guests.  I got so many compliments on the DJ and the music.  The party would not have been a party without him.  We also lost electricity to the house at 1:30 PM on the day of my party.  We thankfully got it back at 4:30 PM!  Michael was a very calming presence during the uncertain period. He responded in the most professional manner earlier in the day to our panic and offered up many solutions.  We’re glad we got the electricity back and running so he was able to show off his DJ talent.  What a find.  I know that many guests at the party will use your guys for future events (and of course me too).  Best wishes

Just wanted to let you know that Mike, Kelly and Paul were outstanding!  I would absolutely recommend each one of them again.  Great team work!  Mike was charming, Paul played great music and Kelly is adorable.  I am a big fan!  They kept the party hopping and there were NO glitches.  Karaoke also was a BIG HIT. It was the right call ……The night was a Big Hit!

I just wanted to write to you to let you know what a FANTASTIC job Mike and Andrew did on Sunday.  We got super lucky and it turned out to be a beautiful warm day. Attendance ended up being pretty good and those that came had a great time. Our principal LOVED it!!  We will be doing this again for sure and I cannot thank you enough.  I will talk to you about Spring events soon!!!
