We had Dann Smith​ as our DJ on June 16th, 2018 and he was AMAZING! He was responsive and very helpful leading up to the wedding and let me make a list of “must play”, “like to hear” and “don’t play” songs and helped me come up with different games and songs for everything. At the wedding, he took complete control and told me not to worry about anything which was very nice because it’s a stressful day! He came and got me when it was time for the special dances, the bouquet toss, and the garter toss so that I didn’t have to think about anything and could just have fun! He was the right amount of serious/professional/funny/goofy and my guests loved him as well! Dann also DJs for my Childhood Cancer Camp every year so you know he has a heart of gold as well : – Amanda

Amazing talent and professionalism! Fantastic performances by Livin The Dream during pre-ceremony, ceremony, post ceremony and post dinner party. Dance floor was packed the entire evening. Every band member is to be commended for their top notch skills. Thank you! – Richard and Nan, Lake Park Bistro July 2018

“I have only positive things to say about our experience with Platinum. Matt was extremely helpful in the weeks leading up to the wedding. He was responsive and incredibly accommodating with our song requests. And the night of the wedding Platinum was a HUGE hit. We had a jazz trio for our cocktail hour and dinner, which was wonderful. And then the full band set up for dancing after dinner. We had three straight hours of dancing—the floor was packed for the entire time! Our guests are still talking about how great the music was at our wedding. And the energy Platinum brought was amazing. They helped make our wedding the most memorable weekend! 10/10 recommend to anyone. ” – Patsy and Charlie – Horseshoe Bay Golf Club June 2018

Platinum was a HUGE hit!

I received so much positive feedback from the guests at the wedding re: the band (Livin The Dream) for the dancing portion of the evening.
Nan was so happy with Barbara and what she did with the two songs that she wrote for Richard/the kids.
Chris was a delight to work with and it was great to get to know Anthony a little better, as well. The whole group did a great job reading the crowd and making the ceremony and reception sound beautiful.
Thanks for all of your hard work. We appreciate it and I know Nan & Richard do, as well.
We’ll look forward to working with you again soon!

“Wanted to thank you for everything Saturday night. You guys (Platinum) killed it!! It was like a real life concert. Everybody during the evening and through texts messages on Sunday was raving about the band. Thank you guys for truly putting on a show. You made our night memorable for everyone! Thank you!” – Megan and Scott Tolzien (NFL Quarterback)

Thank You Platinum for Truly Putting On A Show

Bobby (Bobby Way and The Fabulous Wayouts). I wanted to Thank you and the band for the great performance you
gave at Lauren’s wedding Saturday. The number of people that stayed and
danced all night was amazing. They were having so much fun, mainly due to a
great band playing great music! You and I talked about how bands may
becoming a lost art form. Saturday night showed what a mistake that would
be. Your lucky you have such an experienced group that have stayed with you
a long time. We have seen you play at least a half dozen times and your
consistently very good. And you were great at both our kids weddings. Please
tell the other members of the group how much Char and I appreciate all their
efforts. You help’d make it a great wedding. I will always recommend your
group to anyone I talk to thinking of live music. See you at Summerfest or
one of festivals you play at this summer.

Thanks again for everything. Ken H. 6.2.18 Concourse Hotel Madison, WI

Great Band Playing Great Music

Thank you for everything.  We heard very good comments from our friends and we were very happy with your orchestra.  I appreciate you all coming so far for our anniversary.  If you ever need a “reference” I would be happy to talk to them.  You all did an outstanding job!

“On Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 I saw some of the biggest smiles from our residents that I have ever seen in my almost 7 years as the Service Coordinator at Hadley Terrace Apartments.  Those big smiles and true joy are all due to Community Projects for Seniors.  Jeffery, his amazing staff, and volunteers have constantly supported our residents with everything from a hot meal on the holidays to special outings.  On Tuesday, February 6th, Jeffery onnected our residents with attentive staff who aided in a snack, goodie bags, and a fantastic musical performance by “Special K”.  This was one event that none of my residents will stop talking about.

The ability to make a mostly forgotten population feel complete and special is something that Jeffery Hansen and his loyal staff continue to do within the older adult population in Milwaukee.   This organization is truly a blessing and I personally feel so honored that Community Projects and Hadley Terrace have maintained such a great relationship.”

I want to thank you so very much for getting this event together!  It could NOT have been a bigger hit with all the residents that attended!  They will NOT stop talking about Kevin K, the awesome music, and the wonderful staff that came!   Thank you again!!” -Colleen, Community Projects for Seniors

They will NOT stop talking about Special K!

We had Dann as our DJ for our wedding on December 30th. I met him at a bridal show and really liked his sense of humor, but also appreciated how much he put me at ease. He really made me feel like his sole purpose the day of the wedding was taking care of things for us and making sure we were relaxed. It was the same way the day of our wedding. He called me a few days before to run through all of the information that we gave him and confirm any final questions (and relax me a bit!), and then he checked in with us before the reception as well to put our minds at ease and let us know how the night would go. He was so helpful, kind, and professional throughout our whole wedding. I trusted him completely to do his job and he made sure not only that we were happy, but that all of our guests had a great time. I would HIGHLY recommend him! We also booked our photo booth through ACA, and our guests had a great time with that as well. There was a green screen backdrop and tons of props, and now we have a photo book of memories from the best night of our lives. Thank you Al, Dann, and everyone else at ACA!
