Not your average DJ...

Get the Party Started is not your average DJ service. We believe that great weddings/events do not happen by accident - it takes planning and preparation so your event as a whole is off tha hook. Our goal is make your event as fun and as stress free as possible so you can focus on your guests.

Why should you choose us to be your DJ? Give us 5 mins of your time and we'll tell you why (403) 463-7154. Better yet - why not show you what our previous clients have said about us...

Kristen and Jocelyn – May 2016

Conor was very reliable and very easy to work with. I knew from the start that he was the one I wanted as our DJ for our wedding. He played good music and he kept our guests dancing. Our guests have nothing but good things to say about him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Sara and Peter – May 2016

If you're looking for a DJ stop here. They DJ'd a Christmas party for my company and they were so good that we booked them for our wedding. Start to finish they were professional and the night of they kept our guests cutting a rug until the hotel closed us down. So much fun! We're still laughing about our Bridal Entrance - lol, you made our wedding!

Amanda – November 2015

Get the party started is a perfect name for the company because that is exactly what Conor did and more! Conor came out for our Fall Gathering and really made the night. From the very beginning he responded quickly and was very pleasant to work with. He played a great mix of music which got everyone from the young to more mature crowd dancing together all night. Start to finish there was people having a blast on the dance floor. He was extremely accommodating to all of our needs and couldn’t be happier with the services he provided for the night. Thank you Conor for making our Fall Gathering a successful evening and look forward to potentially seeing you again in the future!

Kellie and Ian – October 2015

We hired Get the Party Started to be our DJ for our wedding out in Banff. Conor was easy to work with from the start, he replied quickly to all our questions and had no problem adding on extra services for us when we requested a mic for our ceremony, etc. My parents had attended a wedding prior to ours and commented on how the DJ only played "rap/young people" music and they didn't find the reception much fun. Conor played an awesome selection of music and had everyone dancing the whole night from kids, young adults to the older crowd. We got lots of compliments on how much fun our reception was and on the awesome selection of music played. Huge thanks to Conor for helping make our day awesome!

Shelby and Sean – October 2015

Shelby and I chose Get The Party Started DJ services for a couple reason. He was the DJ for my sisters wedding and Shelby’s cousins wedding as well. He has been proven to be an excellent DJ at both events and proved it once again at our wedding. Contacting and exchange of information with Conor was very easy , he was prompt to reply with any questions we had. The day of the wedding he showed up well in advance and was very professional and courteous. Conor during the night was on the ball taking in requests from guests and seemed to choose the perfect songs to get people back out on the dance floor. Thanks again Conor you are awesome and I am certain we will be seeing you again.

Becca and Ryan – September 2015

Get the Party Started saved our Wedding!! Our DJ cancelled at the last minute and you guys came in and saved the day! Our guests didn't even know because it was totally seemless. The music was great, our guests were dancing and we are super grateful that you could be a part of our special day! We will reccommend you to all of our friends!!!

Stephanie and Jason – August 2015

Stop your DJ search, these are your guys. We e-mailed tons of DJ's and only a few even got back to us??? After meeting with the ones that responded we were hardly willing to trust any of them with our reception until we met Conor from Get the Party Started. He was normal (LOL), personable and went over everything including songs that we didn't even think we had to plan for. We booked him immediately and the wedding was a hit! It's been two months since our wedding and we still have family and friends commenting on how amazeballs our reception was from start to finish. Book them now, you won't be sorry!

Amanda and Ben – October 2014

From the very first sit down with Conor I knew he was the DJ for us. A professional from the very start. Helped us with great ideas and asked all the right questions to give us the wedding we wanted. All his hard work is very appreciated, not at any point were we worried about the DJ in the planning process of our wedding. You can count on Conor, from meeting our MC's and coordinating with them, helping set up the slide show, rocking great tunes that fit us and our family and friends. If you want a a professional, worry free process, along with a fun loving attitude the day or night of your event Conor is the guy!

Jyllean – December 2014

We hired them for our corporate Xmas party to be our DJ & host a game of Name That Tune. Wow! Conor was awesome, organized, professional and the game was all kinds of fun! Very interactive and got everyone up and involved. Even when it was another tables turn to do something silly for extra points, a whole bunch of people got up to participate just for fun. I don't think we stopped laughing the whole time! And as a DJ he was great, the dance floor was never empty and he played all the requests. You will not be sorry for hiring these guys!!!!

Erin – December 2014

We had Conor come out and DJ our Company Christmas Party this past weekend. It’s 2 days later and people can’t stop talking about how awesome he was. The dance floor was packed from the first song until the end of the night. Conor helped us with some of MC duties and did a fantastic job.  We will definitely be booking him for all our future parties

Melissa and Shane – September 2014

Conor was amazing! He was our wedding DJ and he took the party to a whole new level. Everyone was up dancing and we had a blast all night long. Not only did he play during the reception, he worked with us to create our exact vision for the music we wanted for our ceremony and he executed it perfectly. On top of all that we threw another challenge Conor's way as we needed to vacate our reception location by 11:30 and move to a pub across the way. Conor had his stuff packed up and ready to move to the next location and set-up within 15 mins to get the party going again at the pub. He met all of our requests and was wonderful to work with. We hope to work with him again at future events! We could not have asked for a better DJ!

 

Michelle and Derek – August 2014

I hired Get the Party Started to DJ our wedding on August 9, 2014 at the Calgary Zoo. I knew I had made the right decision from the first time I met with Conor to discuss the event. We met in person for close to an hour and went through all of the details of the wedding. Conor was prepared with lots of questions and it was clear that it was very important to him that he create exactly the experience that I was looking for. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch. Conor arrived on time and, despite a power issue with the zoo, he was able to get all set up for the ceremony and followed my instructions and special requests to a tee. The reception was even better, he did a great job of reading the crowd and playing a combination of music that had everyone dancing until well past last call. I received nothing but positive comments from the guests about the quality of the music and I would recommend Conor and Get the Party Started to anyone looking for a great DJ for their special event. Thanks Conor!

Kayla and Brad – June 2014

One word for this service.... AMAZING! Besides the booze, photographer and marriage commissioner this service was the best purchases my husband and I made for our wedding! All of our guests had an amazing time and Conor played a great variety of music. He had EVERYONE dancing.. and when I say everyone, I mean everyone! After the wedding I had many people comment how great the wedding was and how amazing the party was... and all I can say is it wouldn't have been the same without this service! I have already recommended "Get the Party Started" to all of my friends that have weddings coming up in the near future!

Jade and Sam – April 2014

My husband and I found Get the Party Started on the internet and after reading the reviews of the company we decided they would be a good fit for us. Afterwards we set up a call with Conor and at the end of the call, we knew we had made an excellent decision. Conor was able to answer all of our questions with exceedingly well timing and even gave some suggestions from what he has found in his years of being a DJ. When the wedding day came around, we were thrilled to finally meet Conor and have him play at our wedding. He played all the music we asked for and had the entire crowd dancing till 3 am. Not only did Get the Party Started DJ Services provide us with a DJ, they also provided us with an extra screen to put our slideshow on. To Conor and Get the Party Started DJ Services, Sam and I would like to thank you again for the excellent service you provided us with and we would highly recommend you to anyone. We have even had guests from our wedding comment on how exceptional your services were.

Lauren and Keith – June 2014

Keith and I want to thank Conor for all of the help and leading up to the wedding and Jason for the execution of the ceremony & reception. The dance floor was packed all night long and it was great song after great song! We had so much fun with the bridal party entrances as it started the night off with a bang. After talking to Conor on the phone I knew that we were going to have a great party as they help with song choices and make it really easy to plan. I would recommend Get the Party Started to anyone! Thanks again. We had so much fun!

Jenn and Stephen – April 2014

Conor was great. We had a fabulous time at our wedding. He continuously read the crowd and tailored the music to our guests. Even the little ones were out there dancing until late! The lights and set up looked great. We are both really happy with Conor's services!

Cassandra and Sean – September 2013

Thank you so much for being part of our special day! Every time we talk with people about our wedding they all say how much fun the dance was. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty. You did a great job in making everyone happy with all the different music genres. Also, we truly appreciated how flexible you were with coming in early for set up and staying till the last few people were leaving. Again thank you for being such an awesome DJ. You made the party!

Lori and Mike – May 2013

When we were told about a month before our wedding that the DJ service we had picked was no longer going to be working for us, we were very worried because dancing was a big part of our night. When we were introduced to Conor immediately all of our concerns went away, he listened to our requests, he worked professionally with our planner and he made the night run very smoothly. All of the feedback we have received about our wedding includes wonderful comments on how interactive and entertaining Conor was. Thank you Conor for making our night one to remember!!! Mike and Lori :)

Shou and Ray – October 2013

During the wedding planning, I wasn't sure a DJ was even necessary, but as soon as the dancing started I was so glad to have Conor present. He did a great job of selecting music and when the rare song didn't work, he cut it quickly so that the dancing continued. He really got the crowd into it and we all had a great time. I definitely recommend getting a DJ and using Get the Party Started!

Elaine – November 2013

Hire this DJ! I have planned corporate events for more than 10 years which required a DJ and I have never been as happy with a DJ provider as I was with Conor. He was organized, up-to-date with the current music trends and even fulfilled some weird song requests by some of our staff. We have a very diverse employee base and everyone in the company loved the music and Name that Tune which he organized and ran himself. Huge hit! The only complaint we got was that the hotel told us to shut down the music at 12:30. Conor is now on speed dial at my office for all our corporate events. :)

Catie and Matt – August 2013

Thank you so much for all your help with the wedding day. You did a wonderful job providing the music and sound for our outdoor ceremony that ensured everyone could hear everything in the outdoor setting. The music and lighting added a great atmosphere to our reception that kept people up on the dance floor! Thanks again, our day would not have been the same without your help!

Shawna - October 2013

Our company had a team build with Conor being the entertainment with Name That Tune and Family Feud. Conor was able to bring out people’s secret talents to all their co-workers amusement. We had a great afternoon and a big thanks to Get the Party Started for hosting an energetic/interactive show.

Laura and Steven - May 2013

Conor and his team were phenomenal to work with from start to finish. He was incredibly organized, and the helpful "wedding planning" spreadsheet made our job so easy. He was professional and courteous and kept the party going all night. They also provided lighting for our venue, and my wildest dreams were exceeded when he asked what shade of pink I'd like him to match the lights to. We'd recommend Get the Party Started to anyone.

Teresa and Adam - June 2012

Conor was ABSOLUTELY phenomenal.  From day one he was so easy to talk to and had a complete understanding of what we wanted our wedding to sound like. He took charge right away and every time I needed something he treated me like I was number one, even during serious fits of bridal psychosis. He planned the entire grand entrance for our bridal party and it was SO tremendous and full of energy, I still get goosebumps! People that weren't even at our wedding have heard how awesome it was!! He totally understood exactly what we wanted and I can honestly say that My wedding is the BEST wedding I've ever been to and the dance floor was packed the entire night. It was 110 percent because of Conor's outstanding skill and priceless personality. There was not one person that did not leave the Banff Springs thrilled and exhausted, young or old. I start dancing just thinking about it! If you are reading this, DO NOT leave this website without booking him!!! You will absolutely Not find a better DJ anywhere. I will never forget how amazing he made our big day and you definitely won't either!!

Raelyn and Chris - September 2012

Phenomenal, outstanding, & blew away our expectations; We were introduced to Conor at a friend’s wedding in 2011 and knew right away he was the DJ for our wedding in September 2012.  From the moment we met with Conor we were at ease with the reception and knew our needs were in good hands.  With the exception of the important songs like first dances, and entrance song, we gave Conor the freedom to choose what he thought was best for garter toss, and bouquet toss.  His picks were great!  The guests loved him, and all the songs he played. He played everything from oldies to hard rock to please our guests.  He is very personable and easy going; he took requests, and even gave one of my bridesmaids the chance to sing Karaoke to us all.  Memories we’ll always have with us.  He was with us to the very end even when it was just a handful of us left at the reception.  Do NOT look at booking another DJ for your event’s as you will find no better than Get The Party Started.  My husband and I look forward to seeing Conor DJ at my friend’s wedding this coming summer 2013.

Sabrina and Mark - September 2012

From the day we met Conor, was the day we knew we had the perfect DJ for our event.  Conor was helpful in our selections, patient with our questions and knew exactly how to help us think of all the different songs we wanted and needed for our event.  Conor provided us with tools to plan our wedding and any appointments that we made with him, was incredibly diligent in providing excellent service.  All the suggestions and tips that we were provided ended up helping us greatly in having the best wedding day one could possibly ask for. We can’t thank Conor enough for the service he provided, from our elegant ceremony to keeping our dance floor hopping all night with great song selections and knowing our crowd (and us!).

Lindsay and Lance - October 2012

From the moment we met with Conor we couldn’t wait for our wedding reception.  He had some great ideas about creating surprises to keep the guest both on their toes and feet the whole evening.  Accommodating and willing to go the distance (literally), Conor helped us create both the intimate and romantic atmosphere that we were looking for during our wedding ceremony through to the upbeat, dance til you drop reception.  We’ve had so many compliments about DJ selection and were thrilled with the experience Conor delivered from start to finish.  Thank you Conor for doing what you do.

Christine and Michael - February 2012

Conor was more then just a DJ, he was full of talent, great ideas and he was able to fulfill each one of our requests. From our very first meeting we had high expectations and he blew us away, he even created our own version of "Decade of Dance" with complete perfection and our guests loved it. He completely made me feel confident that he could handle the job in the top of his class and as a bride that is the best feeling in the world, he came through with his word over and above. I would definitely hire Conor again for corporate events and would recommend to any of my friends in the future that he is the guy for your wedding. PS. The dance floor moved a foot at the end of the night!!! Good job Conor.

Glori and Curtis - August 2012

Thank-you so, so much for being the DJ at our wedding.  From day one you have been so helpful and we couldn't have picked a better person to do the job.  Everyone loved the music and as you could tell by the crowded dance floor you did an excellent job.  Thanks again for making our day most memorable and I hope you continue to have success in your company.

Huong and Chris - August 2012

We could not have asked for a better DJ. Conor is very professional and he helped out a lot when it came down to music selection. He keeps in constant communication and is easy to work with. He timed the music perfectly and knew exactly what to play and when to play. I would definitely recommend Get The Party Started to all my friends and family..Book with them, you will not be disappointed.

Elaine and Mike - September 2012

Conor was the DJ for my husband's 80's themed birthday party. We had several conversations before the day of the event so he could get to know what kind of music I wanted him to play and what kind of people would be attending. This planning paid off because the dance was truly the best dance I've ever been to at a party or wedding. Conor did a great job of reading the crowd and changing up the music (even mid-song sometimes) to make sure people stayed on the dance floor. There was not 1 second during the dance where the dance floor wasn't full of people having the time of their lives. Conor made the party a huge success and I'm very grateful to him for that. I would highly recommend him for any wedding/event.

Sonja and Braden - July 2012

Thank you for DJing at our wedding. Vishal was on the ball! He paid close attention to the crowd and played songs which suited their moods. He knew exactly how to keep our guests out on the dance floor. He seemed to genuinely enjoy his time with us, which just made for an amazing experience. Thanks again from Braden and Sonja.

Tiara and Clarence - February 2012

A big thank you Conor, you are truly an excellent DJ. All of our guest were raving about how much fun they had and how it was one of the best weddings and dances they had ever been too. The whole night was stress free and everyone was happy and having a great time. Thank you for playing all our requested songs and having such a great song selection. In the future I will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family. Once again, thank you for everything.

Erin and Michael - June 2011

Sh*! Conor, it was f*****g sweet, the beats were awesome and people loved it! You definitely know how to make it happen and keeping things on track in the wedding flow of events. There were quite a few people who never dance, but the event AND your music/entertainment REALLY motivated them to get out and live it up. We really appreciated you sticking around longer to keep the dance floor bouncing, I hope that you too enjoyed the reception! You'll definitely be recommend to our friends.

Melanie and Sandrine - October 2011

Yes, everything was perfect! We had a great time and everyone commented on how good the music was! Many say it was once of the best weddings they’ve been to. It was exactly what we were hoping for! Dallas was great and seemed to have played almost all of our guests’ requests! The service we got from Conor from the start was wonderful and then Dallas just kept it going! Thank you for everything! You’ll definitely be on the top of our minds if we ever need another DJ! Thanks again!!!

Heather and David - October 2011

Conor was the first and only DJ that we talked to about our wedding. As soon as we sat down with him we knew he was the guy, mainly because of his laid back personality! We liked how friendly and personable he was. He gave great suggestions on how to make our wedding reception fun for all our guests. During the reception our MC said he was easy to talk to and was very flexible in a time crunch. The music was great and all our guest had such a fun time dancing, I don't think there was a time when the dance floor was not packed! Thank you for making our special day that much more fun! We will definitely recommend you to our friends in the future!

Mandi and Jo - August 2011

We just wanted to thank you for your help in making our night the best it could be.  You kept everyone on the dance floor and everyone had an awesome time. You truly went above and beyond our expectations and worked with our MC and gave him lots of good advice. We appreciate what you did for us on our day. Our reception was truly awesome and we feel that could not have been done without you. You truly are good at what you do, and I would recommend your services to anyone who is getting married or for any DJ needs in the future. Thanks once again Conor!

Corrina and Matt - October 2011

We want to give you a huge thank you for making our wedding reception absolutely outstanding Conor.  You went above and beyond to make sure that we had a unique and entertaining entrance to our reception that would set the stage for the entire night. You did a great job of keeping people up on the dance floor the entire night and you were willing to keep playing as long as people were dancing. You were very personable and easy to talk to about what we wanted. Throughout the planning process you were always quick to reply and offer advice/suggestions for what would help make our reception special and interactive for guests to ensure that they were having a good time. Thanks so much for making our wedding reception memorable and fun. We had tons of people complaining about "sore feet" the next day...which is a great thing because it shows that there was lots of dancing. You played a great mix of music for all the different people at the wedding. Thanks so much for making sure that the party was enjoyed by all...young and old!!! You did an outstanding job and I would recommend your company to anyone for dj services.  :)

Kirsty and Dave - October 2011

Finding a DJ is never an easy task but after our first meeting with Conor I knew we had found the right one! He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Any questions or concerns I had emailed Conor about were replied to almost instantly. He accommodated any last minute changes I had without question. Conor had great suggestions and ideas for our day. I would highly recommend Conor and Get the Party Started DJ Services to anyone looking for a DJ. A big thanks from Kirsty & Dave!  :)  

Kelsey and Chris - July 2011

Conor was an absolute pleasure to work with! I planned my wedding for over a year and was able to email Conor every step of the way with any questions or requests I had and he always e-mailed back right away! Our reception was absolutely perfect and we have received countless compliments from people telling us that it was definitely one of the most fun wedding receptions they have ever attended! Conor kept everyone dancing all night long, everyone from young to old danced the night away! Thank you Conor, I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for DJ service in the future!

Randi and Aaron - August 2011

Conor, thank you for an amazing night! Your outstanding ability to match the feel of the crowd with the music that was played was very apparent and reiterated by a multitude of our guests. The dance floor was full all night, like we had never seen at any other wedding that we had attended. We have already and will continue to pass along your information to those needing your services. Our decision to go with Get the Party Started has been a positive one from start to finish and we certainly appreciated your input and advice based upon previous experience. Thanks for a job well done!

Nina and Jared - September 2011

Conor was a great person to work with and really knew his stuff! Because we lived about an hour away from Calgary it was really nice and easy to be able to e-mail him anytime and know that he would get back to me right away. We have received countless compliments from people and it was nice to see people on the dance floor, young and old.  The best part was seeing all of my little cousins (ages 3 to 12) on the dance floor all equipped with glow sticks provided by Conor; which gave them countless hours of entertainment amongst themselves. Thank you Conor, I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for DJ services in the future!

Terri - September 2010

I hired Conor as a DJ for my sisters wedding.  He was FANTASTIC.  I didn't have a clue as to where to start with music selection, wedding party introduction, etc.  He was full of awesome ideas that were geared to all ages of the wedding.  He was very energetic, super friendly and kept the dance floor full all night!!  The only complaint I have is that he changed into a Flames Jersey (ew) at the end of the night when it was time to clean up.  Don't let his poor choice of hockey team fool you.  He is an awesome DJ!!  Conor will definitely be our first choice for entertainment at all events to come!

Dara and Lee - January 2011

My husband recently hired Conor to DJ our wedding reception, and it was exactly the experience we were hoping for. He worked with us and expressed his interest to create exactly what we wanted for the night. Conor was nothing but professional from the time that we first met him, to the end of our crazy reception! Our guests were very impressed with him also, so much so that a girl friend of mine getting married this year would like him to make the trip out to Kananaskis to DJ for her wedding! I would not think twice about hiring Conor again for any event again in the future & would recommend him to anyone!! Thanks again for everything!

Christina and Paul - July 2011

We were so happy to have Conor come to DJ our wedding.  From the first time I contacted him for information to book him, he was nothing but professional.  He got back to me almost instantly each time I had a question.  On the actual day of the event, he was there and set up without me even noticing.  He knew the right type of music to play throughout our dinner and when it was time to party...WE DID. He kept everyone dancing all night.  It was a great time and we would definitely recommend him for any occasion.

Tessa and Corey - June 2011

We hired Conor to do the music for our wedding and I mean the whole wedding, and he was amazing! He was very flexible with what we wanted and played music not just for the younger crowd but older stuff for the old geezers to dance to as well! He was even great as making sure that things were happening when we wanted them or needed them to happen, such as the bouquet and garter toss. He was also very patient with us as we took till the weekend before the wedding to pick out songs that we needed to be played. Thanks Conor, you made the day that much more special!

Kristine - October 2010 and December 2010

Get The Party Started has quickly become a part of our corporate family…we think music, dance, good times and great memories we think "Get The Party Started". These guys have a knack for staying within the parameters we set for them, and leaving us wanting more. The ease of creating a trust and solid working relationship with this company and the Peace of Mind that came with working with Conor is what caused us to sign them on for 2 functions before ever hearing or seeing what they could do. After they got our party started, the first time there was no doubt we would be seeing and hearing a lot more from them in the future. And we look forward to every opportunity!!! Get The Party Started doesn’t just show up….they bring it! Our 2010 Christmas Party saw many people from other parties in the same hotel coming to our Ballroom because the music drew them in, and once they arrived they could not believe the amount of people on the dance floor…I told them "You need ….Get The Party Started." We almost felt cruel sending them back to their party! I recommend Get The Party Started to anyone and everyone who may looking for a DJ or require one in the future.

Melissa and Adam - September 2011

Thank you so much for your services. All of our guests had a great time, people were dancing until the last minute. I appreciated how complete you were in planning the music for the reception and how you worked with our emcee. I will definitely recommend you to any family or friends looking for a DJ!

Ashley and Keith - July 2011

WOW! Two thumbs up! This is one sweet DJ service! Everything from start to finish was taken care of, great music selection, and they kept the dance floor pumping ALL night long. Any requests we made were taken care of to a tee! Awesome work guys!

SWC 85 Committee - June 2010

Get the Party Started DJ services was fantastic! From the initial consultation, up until the very end of our party, we felt attended too. Conor was incredibly professional, outgoing, thoughtful and considerate, handling our party with some uber cool effects and great tunes. Our committee members were really thankful that Conor kept checking to take the 'temperature' of the room and not only played music according to the mood, but really did a great job boosting the tempo of the party creating a crazy memorable event. IT ROCKED! The planning committee of Sir Winston Churchill's Class of 1985 Reunion would hire Get the Party Started DJ Service again in a heart beat! Thank you Conor for all your hard work!

Sunday and Paul - October 2010

We were incredibly happy to have found "Get the Party Started", as Conor was perfect for our annual staff party. For the first time ever, it was a Halloween party (instead of a Christmas party), and a few of the older staff were not pleased. In the spirit of things, Conor wore a Santa suit, which was sweet. The music was awesome, the fog machine added to the atmosphere, and Conor was very professional, not to mention super cute! Can't wait for him to DJ our 2011 party. 10/10.

Kristie ER Nurses Night - October 2010 and October 2011

Every year we celebrate “Emergency Nurses”. This past year we used Get the Party Started to help us celebrate our night. I met with Conor prior to the event to organize and discuss the type of music and expectations we had for the night. They were fantastic in providing up-to-date music, classics and theme music that specific to the night. The sound and lights were amazing quality and it made our night a great success. The flow of the night went off with a flaw. Everyone of our guest had a fantastic night and had only good comments towards the music. I would totally recommend them for any event.
