YOU SAID IT!

Adam H Said:

We went country dancing on a Friday night. We walked in and I was blown away by the vibe (music) of the place. Because of the music it was lively and upbeat. It was a great mixture of basically everything I love in country music. Let's just say I was digging the music Big Time!

Alycia S Said!

Gordie Z was the DJ at my wedding reception. It was awesome! Couldn't ask for anyone better.

Lauren H Said!

I wanted to thank you for being our DJ for my wedding reception. My family and I enjoyed the fun commentary and the music. People loved the idea about the bouquet giving it to the couple that was married the longest. Thanks for making that happen (Great Idea).

Michael L Said!

I was at your Yesterday Once More Oldies Show and had the best time of my life. We tried to stump you by requesting hard to find oldies and you had every darn one. Fun Time with great oldies

Derrick W Said!

I've been to alot of country dances. But this was the first time with Gone Country. I was very disappointed the country music and  DJ's in the Omaha area What a difference! the music selection was fantastic. And it  was a whole lot more than just line dancing. You are a Cowboy's DJ.

Sally F Said!

Two times a month I get to dance to the  music of the best DJ in the Midwest. PLEASE never stop playing music.
