Some written testimonials from past clients:
Thank you very much for extending the non-profit organization price to us. Thank you, too, for waiving the 4 hour minimum.
Our students are working on their song list, and I will get it to you as soon as possible. I don't think anything on the list will surprise you!
Thank you again. I am looking forward to having you here.

Thank you so much...you did a fantastic job!! We are so pleased with the reception!! Laurie
Dave was not only our DJ, but assisted Mike and I to shape our wedding day into what we had envisioned. We met with Dave very early in our planning. At that point, we had thought very little about the logistics of our wedding day, being overwhelmed with other check list items, one of those being to pick songs for our wedding. We were both excited to begin choosing what we would play during dances, grand march and throughout the rest of the night. We met with Dave at a local restaurant in St. Paul. We expected him to take down playlists, songs and wedding party names but we did not expect the level of attentiveness and assistance he would provide us to outline our entire day. He continuously asked us if this was the direction we were thinking, which in the large scheme of things is not a common question you get from working with vendors for your wedding; having someone focus on the greater vision outside of what they were providing. Dave focused on the larger picture, the atmosphere for the night, the specifics down to pronunciations and awareness of the crowd. For some, a DJ will play music at a wedding, but for us, Dave not only played the songs, but orchestrated the event and executed our vision.
Picking a DJ is kind of like online dating. You get to read a little about them and then hope they aren't crazy. We got lucky, David did an incredible job with the music for entire wedding day. He helped with selection of music for our ceremony and we only gave him a few hints for the dance and he took care of the rest from there. David was a great MC, VERY professional all night, and easy to work with.
Highly recommend you!!! You were AMAZING and the wedding game was super funny!!! Thank you AGAIN!! Louise J.
Hey thanks again!! You made our reception memberable!! Pretty much been barefoot and pregnant then and ever since lol - Louise
I’ll always recommend you to my peeps. You’ve been great to work with and we trust that your going to deliver. Your energy and focus in out conversations have made us feel comfortable handing our day to you. Thank you so much Dave for the great experiences and for taking on another event. Your passion truly shows and makes all the difference. Your energy, thought, care and character have made this all the better. In our shopping before finding you, the clowns wet met have 25% of the 200% you offer. Your the bees knees. Again we truly appreciate your help and thoughts leading into our event. Thank you from both of us.

Dave did a great job and made sure to find a long list of specially requested songs for our event. One guest at our table commented how the dinner music was at a perfect level, not too loud but still audible. Fabulous touch to the event.

Do not underestimate this company! Every Single Person involved with our wedding really went out of their way to make us feel special. We were taken seriously with every step and not one person let us down. They are true professionals and never once made our wedding feel less important than a more "traditional" wedding. They took the time to get to know us both, encouraged us to make the ceremony, dinner and dance all our own. There are so many details that need your undivided attention and if you can take only one off your plate it truly feels like the world lifted. Jennifer
YOU DID AN AMAZING JOB FOR US! I really cannot thank you enough. Beautiful touch with the dinner music. I am a huge fan. I would like to ask for your home address so that we can get you a Thank You card. I hope you don't mind but I will be recommending you for others.

Way to go David Kempkes at onlytoonsdj. Thanks for doing such a great job for our class reunion reunion. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the music. The music for class reunions is a big part of the celebration. Thanks again. Will book definitely for our NEXT reunion.

5 STARS! Only Toons DJ was so wonderful for my husband and I to work with as we made our trip to the alter! He assisted with creating the perfect atmosphere for us and our guests to dance the night away! Dave was flexible and was always available to answer questions and extend suggestions! He was prompt to returning calls and provided excellent customer service! Very professional and great experience. I have offered his name to many brides to be that I know and will continue to do so! Thank you Dave for a wonderful evening smile emoticon Greatly appreciate all of your hard work and support in making our night a night to remember!
Ashley (brides husband is a member of the Johnny Holm Band, Imagine a review from a professional musician)
I guess the secret to getting the kids to sleep in on the weekend is take them to a rockin', kick-ass wedding with amazing people and let them dance all night long until their feet are ready to fall off. Great DJ! Great music selection for ANY age, and YES we danced ALL NIGHT.
Had a GREAT night! Onlytoonsdj Kempkes was awesome and music was amazing!!!!! Very thankful for the people that came and made our day GREAT. For those of you that could not make it, your loss!
Thanks to Dave and his crew for another awesome time at this year's Dew Days Cruise Night! Music was great and the cars were shiny and bright. Every year you do an outstanding job with picking the right music for the event and adding in the period correct commercials that makes everyone remember times gone by. If you are looking for a DJ for any event you will be extremely happy with Dave at Only Toons .Dave , send me the paperwork so I can get you locked in for next year !
Thank you Dave! You made our 4th of July celebration a HUGE hit. Your music was awesome and you rocked the crowd. We'll see you next year if not before! 2015 was GREAT, looking forward to having you once again in 2016 for the 4th year. 14 consecutive years!
Only Toons DJ is by FAR the most personal, respectful, honest, honorable, and ON-TIME all-around awesome DJ service in the area, and probably better than most nationwide. They not only were available to assist me (the bride) and the groom through our music decisions... but they helped us choose a memorial dance for the longest married couple instead of the bouquet toss (which was terrific and even got my great aunt-in-law who has significant troubles standing to dance) and also came up with a game for the bride and groom to play which EVERYONE loved and has said was extremely unique and fun! We could NOT have asked for a better DJ service... David and Shawn, we thank you for making our special day just THAT much more perfect! Thanks to you, our wedding will be most memorable and ran smoothly! Everyone loved it, and we loved it! THANK YOU SO MUCH! Love, Jillian & Dylan R.

Thanks Dave. You did a great job. Everyone loved the music and the job you guys did. I appreciated the opportunity and ease of working with you. GREAT Pictures!!!!!

Please tell David again how appreciative we are for the DJ appearance yesterday! Everyone truly loved them and thought they did an amazing job! I am so grateful that they were able to work for us on Saturday, but I am also sorry that I couldn't spend more time with you. I am so sore today I can hardly move, but it was worth it since I think everyone had a really great time. I hope you guys had a great time too. Thank you for being the wonderful person you are and I feel incredibly blessed that you are my friend. Enjoy your Sunday!

The DJ planning forms made it so easy to choose the music that we had to have at our reception, and allowed us to choose the music that we did not want. to hear. They give suggestions for songs to use which was extremely helpful as well. Throughout, he was incredibly responsive, understanding, patient, and flexible. he put up with many e-mails and changes to the schedule of our reception with grace. At the reception, he did a wonderful job. Although we chose the music, it was really David who did an amazing job choosing songs to play to get the party started. We love to dance. David & Shawn made that possible. People we have never seen dance were having a blast on the dance floor. A huge thank you to the great DJs for an unforgettable wedding reception!!

Wow! What a great night it turned out to be. After suffering through a torrential rain & wind storm, these guys pulled off a great event for my husbands 60th birthday. Dave & Shawn were such troopers battling the wind and rain for over an hour. Their clothes and equipment were soaking wet as they scrambled to deliver what they do best. Despite having to move inside to a garage that wasn't set up for a party they were still able to get the party crowd going. They acted professional, courteous and were very accommodating. The mix of music and games were great fun for all ages. If you are looking for the best bang for your buck, these guys are definitely it. Everyone had a great time, including my husband who didn't want a party to begin with. I would recommend these guys to anyone looking to hire a DJ service. Thanks again Dave for making our party one to remember in more ways than one. Dave & Jean
Thanks to Dave and everyone at Only Toons DJ for another great Dew Days cruise night ! 3rd year in a row! These guys really make an event fun and entertaining with their trivia, time period commercials and old school radio snips from the likes of Wolfman Jack and Casey Kasem! If you need a DJ for any reason I highly recommend OnlyToons DJ !
HI DAVE! THANKS FOR SATURDAY! I APOLOGIZE FOR THE LATE EMAIL! I HAVE BEEN RECOVERING... LOL! YOU GUYS WERE GREAT AND I AM TRULY THANKFUL. THE SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY FOR MY HUSBAND WAS FANTASTIC. EXCELLENT CHOICE OF GAMES AND FUN EVENTS TO KEEP THE GUESTS ENGAGED IN THE PARTY, I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. SINCERELY, DIANA
Only Toons DJ (Dave) has been at the Cancer Cruise for the past 5 years. He is very professional, and plays a great variety of the music people like at a reasonable price. Thanks again!
Our DJ (Dave), was a friend of two wonderful people from our church. He has been hired to do several events for church, at a reasonable cost. However, he is fantastic! He plays a wonderful variety of music, has albums after albums of music, and if you have a request for a song he doesn't currently have, he punches it up and downloads it! His personality is energetic and fun, and he really keeps the floor hopping. Communication is the key, so if a DJ or band wants to "go with the flow", either try to negotiate with him/her, or find someone else. You don't want your special day marred by an unprofessional vendor.
David, Thank you for the time that you gave to the Fire Muster in 2013. You were a great addition. I would like to invite you back to this year's Fire Muster. Are you willing to donate your time and equipment again?? What do you think!! Today is the perfect day to start living your dreams!
We had literally last minute changes to the venue of the ceremony due to the weather and he was able to get everything moved. Throughout the whole day and night, David was flexible with our large families and bridal party, but was able to keep us on track. Our older relatives and friends were pleased with the dinner music selections and the early dancing with lighter beats of music choices. And our younger friends were very happy with the later in the night music. The beat increased, as well as the dance lights. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. I highly recommend Only Toons DJ for any event. You were right, You and Sean do pair up great dj'ing a event!

Hi, I've lost your card and I can place your face but not your name...sorry! You sent me a letter a while ago in regards to performing at our 4th of July celebration this year. You offered your services from 11a-3p and we would like to hire you if you are still available. Everyone thought you were great and would like to have you back this year. Please let me know asap as I am booking services now. Thank you. (I did this event EVERY year since that day, for 14 years straight!)
Lights, Lights and MORE Lights! Besides the great bass thump in their system ( 2 -1,000 watt subs & 2 -800 watt subs, need I say more?), the lights kept the dance party FUN! Last time we hired a DJ, he came with a set of blue, green, yellow & red "can" type lights. Dave came with 12 - 15 different types of lights, and LASERS to boot!!! no extra charge for a professional laser unit...unheard of. This dance floor needs to be seen and experienced. Add a small touch of "fog" to haze the air, and the lights "take off" even more. We were worried about the smoke alarms, but Dave never hazed the air enough to set them off, just SET US OFF! Will book again in the future.
The DJ's kept the dance floor full ALL night. The guests complimented on how much fun they were having, and I found it hard to leave the dance floor. I have to say that the fact that they do not ask for tips was awesome!!! I find it SO tacky when vendors show up with a "tip jar" or pitcher with the words "DJ tips" written all over it.....Yuk! But we didn't have to worry about that, as we were able to tip our DJ privately after the party. I would recommend this DJ to any bride on a budget who is looking for fun, but not looking to break their "budget."

Thanks for a great job DJ'ing the cruise last night. Weather looked bad all night but held off and didn't rain a drop. Thanks Dave!!!!
Crazy fun! I just wish I would have taken more photos and videos of these CRAZY dancing kids! Thank you, thank you to our friends and family for celebrating Abby's 5th birthday with us! And shout out to our Onlytoonsdj Kempkes for the awesome music and lights .
So do you only do military weddings? Or they just get a cheaper rate(which is great)? Onlytoonsdj Kempkes I do weddings, parties, events, class reunions. I do the yellow ribbon as a discounted promotion. I am booked with 9 weddings, 4 military discounted so far in 2016. Awesome! I'll be keeping you in mind when i get a date set for sure. I love the fact you offer military discounts! I'm in the military just think its a great thing you're doing. Thank you for your service!

I just wanted to let you know that you did a killer great job of being the DJ for our wedding.
By the time I even thought to check on you, you was already set up and ready to go. There were two songs that we wanted for the Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances, I wasn't sure if he had these and I provided via a CD and it all worked out perfectly. During our first dance, we had suggested that he could end the song (lengthy song) at around the 4 min mark, and he did perfectly as such. He was great on the microphone, wasn't over the top, wasn't underwhelming, he had JUST the spot on demeanor and attitude for our wedding.
When we first started working with Only Toons DJ, a friend that Jenna knew had told her "I have the perfect guy for you" and she was totally right, Dave was great. It turned out Dave had DJ'd her reception as well, and her review was 5 stars!
Mark & Jenna
Dave did a phenomenal job accommodating the Bride's requests, along with guest requests. He helped organize and round up the bridal party for Grand March. Dave did a great job being interactive, and not over bearing.Also, the up-lighting behind the head table, we had looked great.
I got so many compliments on our DJ. Quote from a guest, "DJ nailed it." Everybody danced, and we all had a great time. I would definitely recommend Dave.
We had Dave DJ our wedding and he was amazing. He did everything we asked - ranging from playing specific songs with specific cut offs during the ceremony, to us telling him to do whatever he thought would work best during dinner and during dancing at the reception (the songs he played outside of our requests were all great).
The day of, he took care of everything he needed directly with the venue - the only time we had to talk to him is when we had questions or requests for him, which is much appreciated.
Overall, he is an extremely nice, likable guy, and we would recommend him for any event.
