Testimonials


We worked primarily with Karl to coordinate everything prior to the wedding – he was organized, responsible, easy to get a hold of, and very flexible with us in designing a sound/approach that fit us. Romin DJ’d our affair and did a great job, showing lots of flexibility when there were some last minute changes due to other vendor slip-ups. Couldn’t have been happier with the services, and all at a very reasonable price. I have been to weddings where I know they paid 4x more and had fewer people dancing! I’d trust them to DJ any party or special event!

—Sara G.


Karl and his assistant were terrific! They provided lighting as well as music and microphones for speeches and toasts. Everything went off without a hitch. They kept the flow going and the music running to the point where I had guests wanting to stay past our cut-off time. In the end, I would gladly recommend and/or hire Slable for future events. Thanks Slable!!!

We used Slable to DJ/emcee our wedding on 10/19/14. They were extremely helpful. From the first meeting when they detailed their very low rates and what they offer, to keeping us on track for what was due to them when so that they could be sure they had every song we wanted, to emcee’ing our games and dances, they did a fantastic job. They had suggestions for games we wanted, and ways to get the guests to participate. They were on time, set up and ready to go, with all the songs we had requested. They had the wedding reception timeline and did a great job of keeping everything on track so that we had time to enjoy what was going on. They were always very responsive, within 24 hours, for any questions or concerns I had. I highly recommend Slable for your entertaining/DJ needs.

Our company had booked Slable to DJ our Holiday Party this year. Karl was helpful and accommodating from day one. He was very quick to responding to any question and concern I had, 24/7. The process to book was timely and professional, which is very reassuring when it comes to a corporate business event. He arrived early with his staff to set up prior and went with anything we had requested throughout the entire night. Karl did a great job of keeping everything on track in between our scheduled events as well. We all had a wonderful evening, and will definitely hope he is available to assist us again next year. I highly recommend Slable for any event you may need a DJ for.

Slable did an outstanding job for my daughters 16th birthday. They were on time and very efficient. I had originally only requested up lighting but my daughter decided she wanted to change the lighting and Slable had no problem with this last minute change. Slable played all the music my daughter had requested. They packed up quickly and were very courteous to my husband and I. I would not hesitate to recommend them. I plan on using them in the future!

—Lisa B.


Slable recently provided outstanding DJ service for my daughter’s Sweet 16 party. All event details were handled in a timely and professional manner. Their services were thoroughly explained and I appreciated having various levels of service available from which to choose. We decided to get the uplighting and the dance floor lights. For our venue and the type of party my daughter wanted, this was perfect. My daughter did not provide a song list prior to the party. I was a bit apprehensive about this, but the DJs that played her party did a great job selecting just the right mix of songs for the crowd. The teens began dancing right away and danced non-stop–Everyone had a fantastic time! I will definitely use Slable again if I need a DJ.

—Elizabeth B.


We used Slable for DJ and up-lighting services and they were one of our most responsive and responsible vendors for our wedding. Our wedding was in DC at the Carnegie Institution for Science. Slable took the time to meet us before making a decision and during a venue walk-through (we wanted to be sure they were comfortable with the acoustics and high ceilings). The team was very professional and the value/cost relative to local DC DJ & lighting providers was much better with Slable. The team really worked with us regarding the lighting and DJ setup and were able to accommodate on-the-spot lighting color changes during setup in the dining room from our original choice. Throughout the night many of our guest were commenting how much they loved the music and Slable kept the party going until the very end. I strongly recommend the Slable team for your wedding.

—Patrick M.


Slable was fantastic! I had many questions and clarifications along the way, but they were more than happy to answer them all and work closely with us for our wedding.

They made 100% sure that everything was correct (song choices, how to pronounce the entire bridal party’s names) and checked in with us during the reception to make sure everything was going well. Many of our guests complimented them very highly to us as well.

I couldn’t be happier with how wonderful of a job they did and would highly recommend them!

—Corrina L.


They were great and very very professional. We had never hired a DJ before and Slable took our wishes seriously and asked us all the right questions. It was great.

—Joyce T.


Slable provided DJ, MC, and uplighting services for our May 2015 wedding. Just as a reference point we are a mid-twenties couple and they did a fantastic job of sticking to our playlists and taking on guest requests. They were professional and easy to work with; they went the extra mile to ensure that all names were prounounced correctly and they made a valiant attempt at keeping the reception timeline on track. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for for DJ services!

—Kelly L.


Great service for a great value. These guys bend over backwards to make your event as perfect as you could ever expect. We definitely recommend them for any occasion after their amazing job on our wedding!

—Brett W.


My husband and I booked Slable for our wedding this past May and could not have been more pleased with their service! We only had three months to plan the wedding so everything was a bit hectic. However, Slable went out of their way to aid the planning process and ease our stress. In particular, Karl Stallknect was extremely helpful throughout the process. He was readily available (via emailing, texting, and calling), very professional, and very patient with all of our questions/last minute changes. He is meticulous and very organized, which is exactly what you want for your big day! We did not have a very complicated schedule for our wedding, but I am confident, that if we had, he would of negotiated it without issues (by that I mean, cake cutting, etc). Furthermore, we had specific guidelines in reference to the music and he met all of those. Both him and his assistant were able to read the crowd and get everyone up and dancing while remaining within those parameters. It takes a great DJ to have an 88 year old, 25 year old, and an 8 year old dancing side by side. Overall, my husband and I would highly recommend Slable and Karl for any large event. You will not be disappointed with their service! Thanks Slable!

—Brie M.


Everything went so well for our wedding. Karl was very responsive and directed us clearly regarding the needs of the DJ. DJ Romin was our DJ and did a great job fulfilling our music tastes, playing our special songs, and announcing and directing the night in a way that was subtle but organized. Thanks Slable!

—Bob V.


Slable was amazing to work with. They were professional, courteous, and actually fun to plan with. They asked for my input every step of the way, to how I wanted everything set up, to the playlist, to even helping me set up a timeline for the reception (something I was absolutely dreading.) On the day of, they were right on time, were nice to the guests, and checked in with me to make sure it was okay to move on to the next event (cake cutting, etc.) so that we weren’t cut short on anything we were doing. I HIGHLY recommend them!

—Kristine B.


I used Slable for my wedding and I could not have enough great things to say about the experience and level of customer service their team provided me and my wife with. There were a few emergency situations during the reception and my Slable rep took immediate action and took any worry off of my wife and I. I cannot thank you guys enough!!!

—Stephen S.


Karl and his assistant did a great job at my wedding: they were very professional. Their attire was neat, they were very organized in their online communication as well as in person. I received email responses nearly immediately, and the timeline was agreed upon in advance, so there were no surprises. I’m glad that in the end I decided to only included a few of pre-selected songs and let them fill in the rest. They did a great job, and most of the time, the guests were all dancing.

—Ana S.


We couldn’t be happier with our experience with Slable Entertainment. Karl (Slable CEO) was fantastic from the start. The crew at Slable were very thorough and meticulous about every detail. We had Romin DJ our wedding and my wife and I couldn’t say enough good things about his positive attitude and professionalism. I was told by my father-in-law that he even stayed and helped pick up after the reception. Thank you Karl and Romin for providing such great service and helping make our wedding such a special day!

—Jon S.


I am the activities director for a local middle/high school, and Karl and the entire team at Slable did a better job than any DJ we have ever hired before for our middle school formal, and our high school homecoming!

Don’t let the cheap $100 DJs fool you; you will regret hiring them like we did! Unlike the DJs that we have hired in the past, Slable is an actual TEAM of people, not just a one man operation.

For our high school’s homecoming back in October, their van got a flat tire on the way to setup that Saturday afternoon. They called us to let us know what was going on, and one of their secondary vehicles showed up instead, only 25 minutes after they were originally suppose to arrive and they still were set up in time for homecoming! We couldn’t believe it! They explained it was because they had a backup vehicle ready to go at their office for emergencies like this.

Slable had NO problem whatsoever keeping the music clean, and was kind to the students if they asked for a song that was too inappropriate to play. The DJs that we have hired in the past have either just played the inappropriate song anyways, or were rude to the students when they requested songs.

I know Slable is not as cheap as the alternatives, but if you look at what you are getting, it is well worth the cost…like I said earlier don’t make the mistake of hiring the cheap fly-by-night one-man-operation DJs!

—Lisa S.


Karl was our DJ at my high school 60th birthday party. This was an off year reunion for us, and was a special event since we had it at J Paul’s in Georgetown rather than at a class mate’s house. Karl and the person working with him did an excellent job! We wanted very specific music played from our generation, now called “classic rock!” I also worked with Karl on some special songs for him to have ready to play. He did an excellent job at all of this. I highly recommend him.

—Palmer F.


Sweet 16 Party 1/19/13. My experience with Karl from the first correspondence to the event were outstanding. No question was left unanswered. We loved the uplighting and our photo show as well. I highly recommend him to give you the most pleasant, smooth experience you will ever have dealing with a dj. I cannot say enough how pleased we were!

—Jennifer T.


DJ Slable did a good job; through inclement weather, and other circumstances they provided great service, and kept the crowd happy.

—Shannon D.


Slable was quite professional and acommodating throughout the whole process of preparing for the celebration of the ordination. The music was eclectic and all who gathered enjoyed the variety and the willingness of the DJ’s for requests. Will certainly book this company again for future celebrations.

—Fr. Frank C.


They did an awesome job at my wedding. The dance floor stayed packed all night and he accommodated any last minute schedule changes like a champ. Karl was great to work with, I would definitely hire them again!!

—Jessy H.


Slable was VERY responsive to a variety of sometimes challenging requirements. I would strongly recommend Slable to anyone requiring DJ work.

—Ed W.


We were fortunate enough to employ Slable to manage the entertainment for our wedding in July 2015. From the very first conversation, we knew were in very capable hands. Slable gave us very good recommendations, but in the end, they allowed us to personalize this experience in every aspect. We wanted all of our guests to feel a part of the wedding, so we requested they submit songs to be played at the reception and Slable took the music and created a playlist. They took our ideas and their knowledge and the end product was spectacular. From the very first conversation to the last contact before the wedding, they were available to us by phone; when we got nervous and had questions, they were extremely patient with us and never made us feel as though we were a bother. This was the most important day in our collective lives and they honored that and added to the joy we experienced. Even when at the last minute I decided to sing to the love of my life, Slable did not miss a step in helping me to choose the music and orchestrate the timing; it was amazing!!!! Everyone spoke of how seamless the process was. I’ve never worked with anyone as committed to the success of an event as Slable. Thank you guys for a job well done!

—Wayne H.


Slable was a real pleasure to work with and I would definitely hire them again. They did a fantastic job DJing my daughter’s Sweet 16 party and everyone loved them. They were very professional and went the extra mile in making sure everything was exactly like we wanted. If you hire them you WON’T be disappointed because they are great.

—Cathy M.


Our parish has had the great good fortune to obtain a DJ from Slable for our annual Fall Festival for the past five years. The selection of music perfectly meets the tastes of a widely diverse community. The DJ manages to blend professionalism with fun, as he successfully infuses the festival with a spirit of lively camaraderie. The sound system rises effortlessly above the game generators and other crowd noises. We look forward to our Slable DJ headlining our festival again next year, and would recommend them highly for any function requiring the services of an excellent DJ.

—Maureen D.


Slable did such a wonderful job at our August wedding. They put so much detail into every part of the day, from the ceremony to the reception! For an outdoor ceremony, they managed the sound perfectly and the music selections were a great match for our theme of country chic. The timeline of the wedding moved the night through seamlessly and they put careful thought into which songs were played through out the evening. We felt so lucky that we chose them.

—Mary K.


We were married at Black Walnut Point Inn in Oct 2015. It was an outdoor ceremony and reception. The whole team was great. They played all the songs we requested, and everything went smoothly. The DJ really acted as an MC for the wedding, so I didn’t have to think about anything. Great experience!

—Alex Z.


Slable was hired for DJ service for our wedding. From the start, they were all very helpful and nothing needed improvement from our point of view. Our contact was available to us at all hours of the day…I mean all! We were emailing back forth at 6-7 am and even as late as 11 pm. For the date of the wedding, they were there, set up, and ready to go, even when we were running 30 minutes early! This was an absolute great experience from planning to wedding day. I would highly recommend them for anyone who is looking for DJ services.

—Brandon B.


We are so pleased with Slable for DJ and uplighting services. They went out of their way to make sure our guests were entertained, and to make sure that all of our requests were honored. We would definitely recommend Slable for all entertainment needs!

—Ginnie Q.


We used Slable DJ services for our wedding in Woodbridge, VA. They were the easiest of all our vendors to get in touch with and did a great job of tailoring their services to fit our needs. We had beautiful uplighting that was provided by Slable for our reception. We also were mic’d for our ceremony so that all of the guests could hear everyone.

They also provided us with a really good reception outline and gave us some tips for pacing the reception. The DJ played pretty much every song that we listed during our reception and was responsive to guest requests. Our guests were dancing the entire night.

For the service provided and the cost I really don’t think that Slable can be beat in this area. We were very happy.

—Jason H.


Very reliable, professional and easy to work with. They walked us through the process and paid careful attention to timing issues that we could have had, but they prevented. The style/choice of music was perfectly matched to the events and timing of the reception. The pace of the music was done well too. I am very critical of music at receptions. It can make or break a wedding memory. I had nothing but a positive experience at my daughters reception and would highly recommend Slable for any event.

—Nancy R.


Slable is a great DJ company! They were prepared for anything by sending two DJs to our wedding reception. They contacted us with a timeline one month before the wedding. It helped me as the bride to organize the reception. They are very professional and had great suggestions for us! They asked us for the genres of music we wanted to have played and what level of censorship was needed for the songs. They kept our guests dancing all night. They played all of the right songs for each of our special dances and events during the night. They answered all of my questions and got back to me quickly during each phase of the planning process. They were affordable and I wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

—Sarah L.


DJ at our daughters wedding reception: Outstanding job from start to finish. They are very professional and personable; they kept the reception moving. We were contacted several times to assure the details were correct. They were fantastic with the announcements and music selection. Setup and delivery was perfect. I would highly recommend Slable.

—Diane W.


I can’t say enough on how good a job Karl and his team did for our wedding. They made the whole process so easy and were real quick to reply if I had any questions. The services offered and rendered for the price was phenomenal! Would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

—Dan K.


I am so glad that we had Slable as our wedding DJ! So reliable and responsive – they typically responded within the hour! They kept everyone out on the dance floor and made sure everything was flawless. Our guests kept telling us how much fun they were having. We had the best time at our wedding and we owe so much of it to Slable! Thank you so much!!

—Erika W.


They were very efficient. They did a wonderful job keeping in touch with us and they were always very quick to respond to any questions we had. They were very patient with us while we compiled our Ceremony song list, our Cocktail Hour Playlist, and our “Must Have” song list (it took us a little while to come up with the *perfect* songs). Once we sent it to them, they made sure to contact us to clarify all of the details. I also LOVED the uplights that were provided for our reception – they really helped set the mood for the entire night! All of our guests seemed to have an awesome time on the dance floor and they played all of the songs that we requested. We would absolutely recommend Slable to anyone requiring entertainment services!

—Courtney C.


Slable did a wonderful job as our wedding DJ. They were professional and easy to work with before and during our big day. They provided us with exactly what we asked for, and seemed excited to do it. Would highly recommend!

—Rebecca B.


Karl and his team did a wonderful job with our wedding! They ran sound for our ceremony and kept the party hopping at the reception. Great experience!

—Bill B.


We hired Slable to DJ our organization’s awards banquet dinner & dance, and couldn’t be happier. They arrived early, set up quickly, and were very friendly and professional. Great selection of music for both the dinner and dance portions of the evening. I would definitely recommend them to others, and would hire them again

—Leslie P.


Karl and his staff were very professional and prompt while working with me for my wedding. Guests loved the music that was played and had a great time! Thanks Slable for your outstanding work our day will always be remembered and you played a large role in that! Thank you!

—Megan K.


We hired Slable for our DJ/MC needs at our reception and could not be happier with everything they did! Communication was quick and friendly with responses that came back well within 24 hours. During the day of the wedding, Slable was extremely flexible with our last minute asks and made sure the night went smoothly. We also requested uplights and a spotlight; both of which elevated the venue and made things look great. Most importantly, they got people on the dance floor! We received many compliments on the music and guests of all ages were dancing throughout the night! Overall, we could not be happier with the value and excellence of service provided by Slable!

—Albert L.


We booked Slable for our ceremony sound and DJ w/ emcee services during our wedding reception. They were prompt with answering questions before our big day. On the wedding day, everything was set up on time and all of the equipment worked properly. Our ceremony service and our vows were heard clearly by all of our 150 guests. Our guests enjoyed dancing all night long during our reception and the emceeing was great. These guys are dependable and they did a good job on our wedding.

—Jay F.


Karl was great, he was courteous, professional, and organized, and his experience really helped us in the process of planning our ceremony and reception.

—Jack K.


Unbelievable!!! Karl was truly amazing and listened to and attended to ourevey need and requests!! The dance floor was popping all night long and people commented on the selection of music as well as his energy and involvement in the ceremony!!! We couldn’t have asked for anymore!! Thank you Karl, I we give you ten thumbs up- a strong recommendation for anyone else in the future!! You’re a rockstar, your organization, communication and delivery through the whole process was smooth and worry free!! You are a true professional!!

—Nicole B.


We really enjoyed working with Slable for our wedding, and the value of the services that were provided were fantastic. The up lighting that is included in the price of DJ services was phenomenal and really made the room look special. In addition the staff at Slable is very responsive to emails and would always reply back within an hour.

—Kayla V.


Amazing DJ !!! Slable was wonderful to work with and while many parts of planning a wedding are stressful, Karl from Slable made finding a DJ one of the easiest decision we made. Slable were responsive, very fairly priced, professional and customer-focused (which was very much appreciated!). Definitely consider them for your wedding, you will not be sorry and you will find that they are one of the most responsive and easy to work with vendors out there!

—Caitlin G.


We are so happy we went with Slable for our recent wedding at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to even contact them when I was searching for a DJ because their prices were SO much lower than other local options. I am very happy I went with them, because while they’re prices are low, they deliver high quality DJ/MC services! During the weeks leading up to the wedding, the staff was so attentive, responsive, and helpful. They were truly my most pleasant vendor to work with. My husband and I were thrilled with them at our wedding, as were our guests. They used the playlist and notes I gave them to perfectly tailor the entertainment for the night. There were oldies for everyone to enjoy, and plenty of new music/90s throwbacks for those that stuck around for the dancing long after dinner. We have already recommended Slable to engaged friends and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone in the area looking for a great DJ at a great value! Thanks for helping make our wedding wonderful!

—Allie S.


Working with Slable entertainment was great. We booked DJ Romin and paid a little extra for uplighting in our reception tent to make it look more festive. Karl was very prompt in answering emails and questions before our big day and helped us plan our event so that it all ran smoothly. The uplighting was definitely worth it — made the venue look so dreamy and it was fun during the dancing too to have different lighting effects. We were on a tight time line up until our photographers left so it was essential to have an emcee who knows how to run a show and control the crowd. With the help of DJ Romin, we were on time and feeling relaxed and happy. Slable / Romin found all the songs we wanted (and we asked for some pretty obscure ones) and ensured that everyone danced the night away! We had a great experience with this vendor!

—Marieke K.


We LOVED Karl and Slable Entertainment! Karl is just a great guy with many talents, and he had such a great personality! In addition to being very professional and detail oriented, Karl was very responsive to all communications from us and he took the time to meet with us and to have phone conferences as needed.

Slable Entertainment really provided us with an excellent experience at our wedding reception. The quality of their equipment is fantastic, and the music they played was such a perfect balance of classy, fun, sassy, upbeat…it was just a blast!

I also really like how structured Slable is as it concerns booking, payment, scheduling, etc. They have a very detailed and useful website that is thoughtfully organized to provide the maximum information. I spent a good amount of time looking through their website before I hired Slable to DJ at our wedding, and it was such a wealth of knowledge. The people at Slable do just about everything, and they do it well!

On the day of our wedding reception, Karl was punctual, organized, professional, and upbeat! I loved how he would approach me periodically just to check in and make sure that everything was to my liking. He was so great to work with, and he has such a great attitude about what he’s doing. We really appreciated having him there to add to our special day! We highly recommend Karl at Slable Entertainment!!

—Larisa A.


I thought Karl and his partner did a very good job. Their music selection was broad and they were very amenable to receiving requests. Just make sure you talk very early with them about your music selections and be very clear about what you want for a play list. I would hire them again.

—Joe S.


Very professional. On time. Music equipment sounded great.

—Michelle H.


Karl and his team at Slable did a great job at my wedding reception! They listed to all of my requests and everything ran smoothly. My friends and family especially had a great time dancing to all the great song choices and Slable’s behalf. Thanks Karl!!

—Lacy J.


Slable is by far the best DJ/entertainment company in this area. I have hired other DJs in the past and have never been as impressed as I was with all of the staff at Slable. I hired them for a fundraising dinner on June 15, 2013. They truly love what they are doing and make everything perfect (they are all perfectionists). Every little detail is paid attention to.

Just as an example they had to tape down a few cables that were going across a doorway. They made sure that every piece of tape was the exact same size and was parallel to the tape next to it.

I also hired a photo booth company to bring in two photo booths, and they left their extension cords messy and tangled up. One of the employees from Slable asked me if we wanted them to help them clean it up and I said sure! They made it look much cleaner and it was a big help to me since I was planning to fix it anyways.

These people really are top notch. They all get along really weel and they love their boss (I think his name is Carl). I only spoke to Carl once during the sales process since he was not at my event and was out of town at the time, but he really knows his stuff and had me sold almost instantly!

They are also very honest. I had forgotten that I paid the remaining amount two weeks prior, and gave them a check for the remaining amount at the end of the evening. They said that they thought I had already paid and promptly checked their computer and confirmed that I had already paid. They then brought the check back to me. This really made me feel comfortable trusting them.

I will definitely hire Slable again in the future and am going to be recommending them to all of my friends.

—Hollie P.


Hired them for my wedding on July 4 weekend. Karl and his team did an amazing job. Worth every penny.

—Liam H.


Karl and his team were very professional, on time and outstanding at their trade. I would highly recommend their DJ service.

—George P.


Real pros…I would definitely recommend Slable. Karl was very helpful throughout the the entire process. Props out to Slable, Karl, and their staff. Awesome job!

—Mark H.


Really decent job. They did well working off my specific song list. Lighting provided was amazing and really set off my outdoor wedding!

—Didier R.


Slable did a great job at our wedding! They followed my guidelines and played the kind of music we wanted. I had a few guests request songs from our black list, and Slable made sure to get permission before playing any of them. Our guests had a great time at the wedding and are still mentioning how much fun they had!

—Laura B.


Slable DJ’d for our wedding at the Baltimore Zoo in July and did an excellent job. Karl, the owner, is extremely professional. He put our minds at ease. We interviewed a total of 6 DJs (most from Thumtack) and Karl was by far the most professional. He really has his act together and made the entire experience (from finding a DJ, interviewing the DJ, picking out the music, reminding us of when we needed to submit our selection list, etc.) easy. As you might recall, doing with the travel agency on our honeymoon was an incredible pain, the excellent job you did sure did help. Thanks, Karl. You did a great job, and I would recommend you to anyone, anytime.

—Joseph K.


Karl was very helpful. He was running a little late because of an accident on the interstate. He called me to keep me informed and made it still on time. He did a great job! Played all of our requests on the lists and many more.. I would use him again!!

—Michelle M.


The Slable DJ service was excellent. Great price for the amount of work. Karl and his team were able to setup all the equipment, including up-lighting without any input from us on our wedding day and we couldn’t have asked for a better job. Very detailed oriented. Would definitely recommend Slable’s DJ service to everyone in search of a good DJ.

—Michael Z.


Slable was a joy to work with. They were the single easiest vendor I worked with for my wedding and they did a fantastic job. They called me far enough in advance to really get a sense of my itinerary and my taste. I had a long wedding reception and they kept people dancing. The uplighting and dance floor lighting also made my inexpensive fire house banquet hall look beautiful and festive. I would recommend Slable to anyone, and I hope to have occasion to use them again in the future.

—Melissa B.


I was hesitant to sign up for Thumbtack and even more hesitant to actually hire someone that I found on the internet, BUT, how glad I am that I did.

This past weekend I celebrated a milestone in my life (turning 60) and I had a rather large party (about 130 in attendance). I hired Slable as my DJ and I don’t have one second of regret. I photographed weddings for 30 years so I have been around the “good, the bad and the ugly” of DJ’s throughout those 3 decades and I will say that Slable would surpass the good category and head straight to the “GREAT” category.

I never met any of their employees face to face until the night of my party and normally I would never consider not meeting a vendor face-to-face beforehand. In fact, Slable was actually the only one of my vendors that I didn’t meet before my party. The only reason I was ok with it was because Karl (their president) was readily available by phone/email when I needed to ask something. And the one time a call went to voicemail they were very quick to call me back. I was really impressed with their work ethic before I even met them.

My party started at 5:00 PM and I had decided that I was not going to get to the venue myself until 3:30. Karl on the other hand, told me he and another employee would be there by 2:00 to start the setup of his sound equipment and the up-lighting I requested. Sure enough, when I got there at 3:30, Karl and Brian were there busily working and things were well on their way to being set up and ready to go. Impressive. My party was on the second floor of the venue and there was no elevator which meant Karl and Brian had to carry all their heavy equipment and lighting up those two flights of stairs. Neither Karl nor Brian complained or fussed at all, not even a “humorous” complaint. Very impressive!

Slable was so easy to work with, before and during my event. They played songs from the playlist I gave them and filled the rest in with other songs that went along with the type of music I had requested. I was on the fence as to whether or not I wanted to add the up-lighting but I’m SO glad I decided to add it. It added so much to the room to make it look festive and fun.

Karl and his team left no stone unturned in the type of service they gave me and there isn’t a single thing, not even a minor thing that I could say I wish they had done differently or better. They worked with me and for me in the most perfect way that any vendor could. I can’t imagine that ANYONE would be displeased with their service.

I really want to thank you Karl and your team as well, for helping to make my 60th birthday celebration a wonderful event not only for me but for all of my guests that attended.

Truly, you’re the BEST and I wish you great success as you continue to grow your business. What a complete joy to meet a vendor today with the work ethic that you and your staff have. As my former students would, on occasion, say to me…YOU ROCK!

—Pam M.


Karl and Slable were absolutely wonderful. From the preparation to the actual event, they were responsive and attentive. They really took into account what we were looking for at our wedding. They arrived promptly and seamlessly blended into our venue. They moved things along at a perfect pace. THANK YOU!!!

We booked Slable for my daughter’s sweet 16 and I couldn’t be more pleased. From the moment I sent an inquiry for information, to the actual event, this company went beyond what I had expected. Complete customer service, prompt responses, and excellent DJ service! My daughter had a wonderful time and this was due in no small part to Slable!

Karl did a great job DJing our wedding! He was great communicating with my bride and I from the start until the finish! He was on point and met all of our needs! Definately worth the money! We highly recommend SLABLE!

Slable was absolutely fabulous! Karl (their owner) was SO courteous, so professional, so on time, and their quality was tip-top as well, plus their prices were much more reasonable than other DJs we looked into; we were so glad we hired Slable and would recommend them (and actually already have!) to anyone desiring a top-notch DJ with a great price to-boot! I will add they also did a wonderful job orchestrating and serving as MC for the reception, they really made the whole process easy, well done Slable!

Slable was one of our favorite vendors! The DJ service they provided was a great value, but we received spectacular service. Karl (their owner) was on top of every detail for the wedding. They were always prompt in their responses (I think the slowest response was 17 minutes after our inquiry), and detail oriented. Karl’s team was professional on they day of the wedding, and several guests commented on how good the DJ was!

—Todd G.


This was an above and beyond wonderful DJ experience. They did EVERYTHING I wanted and met my wishes perfectly. Truly made the whole reception magical. They even came out to show me some uplighting options the day before… above and beyond the call of duty!

Slable was AWESOME! They were so helpful and incredibly professional right from the start. My husband and I had originally booked with a different DJ company, but had a bad experience with communication, so we dropped them and, luckily, ended up finding Slable. Not only did their owner spend time with me on the phone the day we booked with them, he also helped put together a schedule for us to use for our wedding day. They acted as the master of ceremonies and as a day-of coordinator to help ensure the events went smoothly. They set-up at multiple locations with ease – and all of the guests said they were definitely a main part of what made the wedding so great! I’d recommend them for any event! I don’t think you’ll find more personable DJs in this area.

Slable was one of the first to contact me on my search for a DJ. They were enthusiastic, professional and very deliberate when it came to ensuring I felt confident with their team. I needed them for a Naval Academy graduation party (not in my home town) which demanded a lower key approach (vs. a wedding). Karl and his team were a hit with all the grads and families that attended. Karl knew intuitively what songs to play and when. Initially when I suggested a DJ to my son (who was graduating) he was not a huge fan of the idea. At the end of the evening, he and all his buddies let me know what a hit Slable was. Karl and his choice of music were the highlight of the evening. Everyone was on the dance floor, including my 90 year old mother (go figure). In closing, Slable stayed in contact consistently with me up until “grad day”. Their professionalism and delivery on grad night were above bar. I highly recommend Slable for their professionalism, depth of music knowledge, ability to gauge the audience and his overall rapport. GREAT EVENING, GREAT DJ!

Karl and his staff were very professional. They did a great job at our reception and everyone had a great time! I would recommend Slable for your wedding reception or any event for that matter! Thanks again!

The DJ experience with Slable was great! The lighting and music created a party atmosphere, where my daughter and her friends were compelled to get on the dance floor. Karl’s attention to detail was excellent and overall, it was well worth the cost.

—Natalie L.


Slable is awesome! Very professional and understanding. They met all of our needs and made everything go by smoothly. I highly recommend them to any occasion.

Karl Stallknecht and his team at Slable were amazing. They were so professional and their attention to detail was superb. Karl was so responsive to our every request and working with his team was so enjoyable. We are so happy we chose Slable for our DJ and videography for our wedding day. They were top notch and we couldn’t be more pleased!

—Lisa F.


Karl and Josh the djs at my wedding did an outstanding job! They engaged my guests with dancing they were very accommodating and they kept the party moving and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend them.

DJ Karl and team deliver! Karl is organized, thorough, and responsive. He has state of the art equipment and knows how to use it. Our wedding and reception were simple and focused on celebrating our love – we didn’t want to get caught up in the details. We told Karl what we wanted, and he ran with it delivering far more than we had hoped. The package was very straight forward and inclusive – Karl included amplification of the ceremony, lovely up-lighting in the reception hall, master of ceremony, and of course, great music. Our guests wore out the dance floor! 

Our city venue shared a street with a concert the day of our wedding creating parking challenges and other logistical obstacles. Karl stayed in communication, had a plan, and arrived early to avoid any issues – all while maintaining the utmost professionalism. 

Finally, Slable’s prices cannot be beat, especially for the quality of service! Fair warning, I doubt their prices will stay low for long – Slable is a great company and worth the investment!

We highly recommend Karl/Slable without any reservation!

—Jennifer E.


Karl and the team at Slable was VERY detail oriented both during the planning phases and during the event as well. Their team was prompt and courteous.

Most importantly, our guests thoroughly enjoyed the music that they played. We all danced (even those that typically don’t) and had a fabulous time!

Thanks Slable!
