Personal Testimonials

"A Ran is awesome. Not just in their professional performance but in the highly personalized touches and care to detail that make your event into "The Event". We recently contracted them for our wedding and were pretty nervous about our big day. Each of them were so helpful and accommodating from the beginning consultation thru the reception finale. They do not take their jobs lightly and are always willing to jump in and help in any capacity to make certain everything is flawless. You cannot provide customer service of this caliber without truly loving what you do and caring about each individual client's needs. Large event or small, do not make a mistake and book anyone else. A Ran Music will exceed all of your expectations."

"We had the crew at A Ran DJ our wedding this past July at Summit Manor Reception House in St. Paul. The DJ was actually one of the vendors we were most nervous about because, from what we could tell, they all seemed the same (and mediocre). When we received the recommendation to try A Ran, we met with them and were immediately impressed. Beyond just knowing their stuff, they seemed to have a passion for music, a love of their job, and seemed really keen on personalizing the experience. As a plus, they have a personal relationship with Summit Manor, so they knew the rather unique venue space very well. After the first meeting, we continued to be impressed with the company (especially Niki who is the main contact). She is very responsive to emails, cares a lot about making the experience unique to you, is highly professional, and is generally just great to work with. Because the music was so important to us, we still were not 100% sure how it would go on the big day. Well, it couldn't have gone better! A Ran did both the ceremony and reception seamlessly. On top of this, they were just really on-top of making sure everything went smoothly (at one point I saw one of them cleaning up spilled drinks on the dance floor). We were incredibly impressed at how well they were able to make our wedding music fun for both of us as well as our guests when our music tastes are so different from each other and most of the guests. We highly recommend A Ran!!  Here are some benefits of going with them: 

Very professional, Eager to give assistance and recommendations, Easy to work with, Unique company (They aren't some large company that will give you some random DJ. They have been doing this a long time, and you can meet with them before your wedding.), Customized to you (You won't have to hear the same songs that are at every wedding ever if you don't want to.), 3 Djs (for the price of one) will work your event, reasonably priced and affordable, Will go above and beyond the day of your wedding."

"We recently got married and we cannot say enough good things about A Ran Music Service. They did an amazing job! The dinner music was just right and it was at the perfect volume the whole night, they played great songs and had great sound quality. They were able to "read" the crowd and see that there were a lot of swing dancers, and immediately played songs to fit that style. My brother, who was the MC for the reception (not affiliated with A Ran) said they were super easy to work with and coordinate the evening. We greatly appreciated all their work and Niki does an excellent job with all the details prior to the reception. My wife and I planned our own wedding, and with Niki taking such good care at her end, we didn't have to worry about anything. I would definitely use them again in an event. Thank you for making our day special!"

"They did a FANTASTIC job at my reception. They kept things moving and got people out on the floor. One of the guests are even issuing them at an upcoming event!"

~Ashley J.

"We are so beyond thankful to A Ran music service. They were wonderful and made our wedding perfect. They provided the best service to us and even helped out throughout the night. They played a great variety of music to keep our dance floor PACKED! They also were flexible and took song requests throughout the night. Niki was great to work with and responded right away to any questions I had. They were beyond professional and helpful. We would HIGHLY recommend them! We are so glad they were a part of our big day!"

~Taylor G.

"We are so happy that we picked A Ran for our wedding, from the moment that we met them we knew they were the right choice. Niki was so very helpful and accommodating. Our friends and family are still talking about how unique and personalized we made our wedding day. From the music that was played during the ceremony, our first dance, the last dance of the night and everything in between. We cannot thank you enough for helping us make our day amazing." 

~Travis and Jeanne Maahs

"We were so happy with A Ran!!!! From the first moment we called, to the last dance all was perfect. They made our dream wedding at Summit Manor all we hoped it would be. They are so nice and seem so willing to do anything to make the reception better. We did have them play the music for our ceremony as well as dance and everything was flawless and fun. Fun is the word... wow did they get everyone out on the dance floor. Highly recommend!!!"

"They were so wonderful and so easy to work with! We (the wedding party) were running a bit late and they were all so patient and let us do our thing and just started everything when we were ready! Niki was really great with communicating before and during the wedding! They played awesome music and came up with alternative things because we didn't do the dollar dance so we did dollar kisses instead of glass clinging! It was very creative and a wonderful alternative!"

" I have experienced many evenings including wedding parties with the Ran Music Service. They are very engaging and exciting too listen to because they play upbeat fun music, enjoy what they do, and enjoy the people. Knowing them for a lengthy time, I can confirm their love for music as family and friends. It is what they do for enjoyment and livelihood. They are very good at it. Thank you for the opportunity to give them my thumbs up."

~Jamie McCarthy

"You made our 50th wedding anniversary very special. Would not have been the same without you! The music was exactly what I wanted. Could not have been any better. Thank you so much!"

~Keith S.

"I recently got married and we cannot say enough good things about A Ran Music Service. We knew at our wedding not a lot of people were going to be dancing and that we didn't want the music so loud that we weren't able to hear when we were talking to our guests. They did an amazing job! The music was the perfect volume the whole night, they played great songs and had great sound quality. They engaged the kids that were dancing, which everyone thought was adorable. Also, my husband and I don't like speaking in front of people, they did all the announcing for the dinner and dances, which we greatly appreciated and Niki did a great job speaking. I would definitely use them again in an event. Thank you for making our day special!"

"Niki is a wonderful Event Planner and Host! Along with Faylon, Ran and Lori you will receive the utmost attention to details. They are Professional, Caring and Great at what they do. We were so pleased to have them manage all the music for our daughter’s Wedding. Sincerest Thanks."

"I cannot say enough great things about A Ran Music Service! They were so professional and entertaining when they provided music services for my wedding in September. Niki was SO helpful (and patient) helping me with my song selections for my special day. Ran clearly loves what he does and is very passionate about the music and making sure everyone is enjoying themselves. Since they have so much experience within the music and entertainment industry, they were so helpful in keeping us on schedule and making things run seamlessly. I would highly recommend A Ran Music Service for your next event."

~Heather M. 

"I've been to many events with A Ran Music Service and they're always amazing. Great people, and great music! They always make sure the music is perfect for the event, and are a complete joy to work with. I would highly recommend them for any event!"

"We hired A Ran Music for our wedding and they were fantastic! Niki was so easy to work with. We had a chance of rain so they were prepared to do music both inside and out! The whole family is VERY easygoing and ready to "go with the flow". I am very appreciative of everything they did! Thank you!" 

"We loved working with Niki and Ran! Very fun, professional, attentive, accommodating, and a real joy to work with!! Would highly recommend to anyone! Five-star service, quality, and value."

"I first met A Ran Music Service when they were working as DJs at our venue and was impressed from the very beginning with their attention to detail, positive attitude, and genuine concern for the best possible outcome for the client. They were on time, organized, and worked very well with our staff. When a last minute change occurred regarding the sound for the client's wedding ceremony, their response was, "Not a problem. We have it covered." Once the dance started, it was clear that they knew how to work a crowd and get everyone on the floor in a fun, but professional manner. They truly made the night. We are proud to have them on our preferred vendor list and I even hired them for my wedding!" -David M., Owner of Summit Manor

"Thank you for your DJ services.  It has been a pleasure to work with you
guys!  You will be remembered and recommended." -Gwen and Todd B.

"You guys rock!  Thank you so much for putting on a great show and for
teaching us how to dance- we clearly (me) needed help. Also, thank
you, Niki, for being so helpful throughout the entire process.  You are
all great people and it was so nice working with you!" - Bre and Andrew

“If you're looking for a professional DJ and music service company that provides exceptional customer service and a hands-on experience, than look no further than A Ran Music Service!  I couldn't have been happier with my experience using this company.  I went with A Ran Music Service for my wedding reception in July of 2012.  It was held at the Afton House Inn in Afton, MN.  Niki was a blessing to work with and took on all of the correspondences directly with Afton.  I didn't have to worry about a thing!  She called them directly to verify when they could arrive to prepare the dance floor, lighting, and equipment- which was set up and ready to go before any of my guests arrived.  The entire staff was great and so professional.  They respected my music wish list, threw in some fun songs for the hubby and me, as well as kept everyone having a good time and on the dance floor.  I would be happy to attest to their professionalism and look forward to using their services again in the future.”
-Tabitha W.

"We hired A Ran Music Service as DJs for my daughter's wedding and could not have been more satisfied.  They consistently performed services that were above and beyond what we contracted them for.  When it started to rain they allowed us to move the outdoor wedding inside and use their sound equipment for perform the ceremony.  They really saved the day! They provided us with excellent sound and lighting equipment that helped contribute to a memorable evening."
-Grant N.

"Thank you so very much for the incredible work you all did for the Sounds of Mid-America (SOMA) event. We truly would not have been able to provide the level of professionalism and the special touches that made the event unique without the entire A Ran Music Service Crew pitching in on everything from sound/lights to prepping food and helping put the VIP packets together. The other performers during the day; Surf Dawgs, Canoise, Lady Franklin and Crow, raved about the stage and sound...as did our guests. You did a fabulous job, Ran. And your set was exceptional, too. Thank you again!!!" -Di and Shar

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your production company for the wonderful job that you did at this year's Graco picnic. It is clear that A Ran Music Service has become an entertainment tradition for the annual Graco picnic. The music selections, interactive games, and involvement by Ran and company are just a few of the events that Graco employees and their families look forward to each year. We look forward to seeing you again next year." -Kellie M.
