your kc dj
Your KC DJ is owned and operated by husband and wife, Johnny & Safiyyah Mills. We are a boutique brand amongst Kansas City based DJ companies, as we do not book multiple DJs. To compensate for double inquires and emergencies (none so far), we have built close relationships with some local DJs who have a similar performance style. Johnny is a turntablist, which means that he mixes live music on turntables when performing, think "club style." The majority of our clients book us because they are looking for a DJ who can play to a diverse crowd (ages and cultures) & will customize service. Per a majority of client reviews, Johnny's musical knowledge, Emcee skills and creativity of performance rank high. Clients also speak to our organizational skills, helpfulness during the planning process and most importantly the fact that their guests always have a great time. We understand that our approach may not be for everyone and we are okay with this. In fact, we will refer a different DJ company at the potential client's request if we are not a good fit. Your KC DJ primarily markets within the wedding industry, but we also book corporate, non-profit and other private events.
Johnny the DJ Quest, affectionately known as Johnny, DJ Johnny Quest or DJ Quest, is Your KC DJ's premier DJ & Emcee. Johnny is an Army veteran who fell in love with the concept of the disc jockey while stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. Captured by the way good DJs have the ability to create phenomenal events, Johnny knew that he was born to spin on the "ones and twos."
After leaving the Army in 2003, Johnny set out to become a DJ and has been performing ever since. Johnny's resume includes various Kansas City venues (both clubs and private). Johnny has always had a passion for good music and has never limited his musical selections to one genre. He has carried this eclectic style into his career and has a reputation for being one of the most diverse DJ's and energetic Emcees in the Kansas City area. If you are at a Johnny the DJ Quest set, you will be taken on a journey through various genres and decades of music. Johnny's musical taste is a direct result of the places he has lived: England, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Carolina, Washington D.C., South Carolina and Kansas City, MO.
Johnny is the official DJ for H3TV (www.H3TV.com) and has performed for the area Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, MO throughout the years. He had the opportunity to travel to a Boys & Girls Club in St Louis, MO, and performed at the Kansas City Chiefs while performing with H3TV. Johnny has performed for the University of Missouri Kansas City for various events. The most notable includes: The School of Medicine’s Snow Ball and the Women of Color Conference.
