October 2018

“DJ Forrest is the Best DJ! went above and beyond for our wedding. Our initial phone call with Forrest went very well and he was very receptive to our requests. He played almost every song we submitted to him during our pre-wedding consultation, including some untypical songs. He was very detailed oriented and made no missteps with our procession songs. The dance floor was packed the whole night! We even saw some of our guests that never dance out on the dance floor. We also liked the fact that he did not talk excessively on the microphone. We did hear from some guests that they had trouble hearing us during the ceremony and the toasts during reception, but most had no trouble, so it wasn’t a big problem. From attending past weddings, the two things people remember the most is the music and the food. With DJ Forrest you can at least cross music off the list.”

The best day of my life

October 2014

I had the pleasure of having the owner DJ Forest do our wedding! My expectations were beyond exceeded. From the music, Photo booth,wedding video highlights to all of the coordination that he did with the wedding coordinator. We had so many last minute changes and ideas and no one ever noticed he did everything flawlessly. I couldn’t have ask for a better DJ! The video was AMAZING! Along with the photo booth pictures and Music was Beyond awesome! I will use him again for any event! I especially highly recommend him and his company for a wedding so you don’t have to have any stress or worries about anything!

October 2014 (via email)

I just wanted to thank you for another fun evening last night. You are truly not only awesome at what you do, but with the kids. Takes a special person!! -Melanie

Julissa: So we hired DJ Forrest for my 18th birthday bash! It was the best party of the year even for my friends from the church, like they talked about it for weeks and now we are sooo excited to also hire him for my sisters sweet 16 <3 I’m very happy with the choice my parents made and it was the quality,the sound & the way he does business which was the seal of the deal! Thank you Forrest, I will forever be grateful with you and your work, it was the best party EVER!!!!

Nancy: 10/10/2014 I had the pleasure of working with Forrest last weekend as he provided the DJ service for a wedding at the venue where I work. He contacted the bride promptly to discuss the details of her reception and then communicated those details with us at the venue.  Since the DJ runs the reception this is key to ensuring that all goes as the bride and groom wish for their celebration.  He did an excellent job and had everyone on the dance floor. Forrest is very professional, was prompt for set up and was easy to communicate with prior to and during the event.  Excellent service!

Blanca: 10/8/2014 This was my daughters 18th year old birthday bash at our home in Clear Lake, Forrest got there early and did an outstanding job, I knew him  from like 4 years ago but didn’t know the quality of his business which left everyone impressed at the party, and these people were Christians who loved his music and the excellence in how he performed his task. We are very pleased with him and will never hire anyone else, the quality was the best in the market! Hire him, you wont regret it! Hands down!  B.H.

Rhonda: 10/7/2014 I had an exceptional experience with this company.  Very well prepared and effortless for me.  I used the photo booth and it was wonderful.  I’ve also attended several events they DJed.  They have a wonderful selection of music for any occasion and do a great job at weddings.  Will defiantly use this company again and would certainly recommend them to friends.

Jonathan: 10/7/2014 Xceptional Dj’s did an awesome job providing entertainment and coordinating the reception portion of my wedding. They were very attentive to our wants and needs. I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and my wedding was the best party I’ve ever been to!
Chris: 10/6/2014 I had the best experience with Xceptional DJ’s and photo booths!  I am a repeat customer. Not only did these guys do a phenomenal job at my sisters wedding, but they helped boost my business when I had them bring out the photo booth to an event. Forrest and all of his staff are the most courteous, and professional people I’ve ever met in this business.  I would pay way more than what they charge for their services.

DJ Review

February 2014


January 2014… from our Facebook page@

“Forrest, we cannot thank you enough! Ryley and I were so nervous since our DJ that we had been working with backed out a few months before the event without the slightest notice. I immediately took to the internet and found Forrest from Xceptional DJ’s, who I called based on the highly praised reviews. Thankfully, he had a spot open and we booked him right away. He was the most professional vendor we worked with, and I could not be any happier with my choice. The package we got came with a photobooth, and that was the icing on top of the cake. It was a hit! Forrest, you are the best DJ I have ever seen. You had some of my family members busting a move that I’ve never even seen dance at any other event. If I could give 100 stars to DJ Forest, I would! Thank you so much for making our night unforgettable! Everyone loved the music and enjoyed themselves because of you!! If anyone in Houston needs a DJ, it’s gotta be Forrest!”
