January 2020

We traveled from CA to SC to get married, we couldn’t be happier we did. EVERYONE danced all night long! It was exactly what we pictured and wanted, and wouldn’t have been that way without him. He also did such a great job with transitions between songs, introductions and announcements. Everyone we talk to about the wedding says we had the best DJ ever.


May 2018

DJ Natty Heavy was absolutely amazing!! He kept the party going from start to finish. All of our guests raved about his perfect song selection and infectious personality; he was dancing and singing along with the crowd.
