DJ Jim's Work


Thank you for checking out my page and demo video. I would like to congratulate you on your event and I look forward to working with you. I started DJ’ing weddings and parties in 1995 after realizing the music business was not for me. I grew up on the same street as Dan Dettloff and watched from afar as he created his DJ Business. He invited me to train with him and to become his second lead DJ to book. After Dan merged his business with George Munger’s, we went from 2 DJ Systems to 4 instantly. Those days were exciting and we were all working our best to create fun events from weddings, birthday parties, anniversary parties, to The St. Clair Shores Fireworks.

As the company grew, along with Dan and George, I took more of a mentoring role with the rotating DJ assistants and some of our best DJ’s came out of those events. I saw Dan and George’s vision and knew I had a big part in training the future of this company. I am often asked at events if I do this “full time”, back in the day it truly was a second full time job. I worked event sales in the office at night after working my day job, and also meeting with my own clients 30 days before their event (just like you will), followed by DJ’ing on Friday and Saturday nights. From 1995 through the year 2006 or 2007, I worked as a lead DJ for 35-50 events a year. It’s all a blur, not sure of the exact date, but as Bon Jovi says, “I’ve seen a million faces and rocked them all”.

Here I am doing what I do best, working for the best DJ company in Metro Detroit. Year after Year, consistently providing the best services, options, customization, event coordination, and most importantly, FUN!!!! If I am lucky enough to be chosen by you for your event, I can promise you will receive the positive non-ego driven communication necessary for planning a successful event, the years of experience to keep your crowd engaged & dancing.  There is nothing I love to do more than taking a crowd on a musical journey and, especially with weddings, be a part of someone’s best day of their life.

At your service,

Jim Coffman

  • Jim was AMAZING!!! He did a great job and made everyone feel apart of the day! We loved having him as our DJ! He listened to our requests and needs and made sure everything was perfect! He was very timely with responding to our emails and had genuine suggestions. We really felt that he knew us and made everything exactly how was wanted! We could not be happier with our experience!

  • Jim was awesome. He knew exactly how to get everyone to have a good time. During our initial meeting we were open to suggestions, and Jim was able to point us in the right direction and suggest additional music based on what we said we liked. The day of the event went off flawlessly from start to finish.

  • Our DJ Jim was amazing! When we booked our DJ with Elite we were assigned Jim but not knowing any of the DJs we didn’t have a preference. He was FANTASTIC! From our initial meeting with Dan through all the emails, phone calls and planning process up to the meeting before the event and throughout our wedding Jim and his assistant Brandon were on point the whole time! We have gotten so many compliments that our wedding was one of the best they’v been to in awhile 🙂 I can’t thank your staff enough for making our day so wonderful! 🙂
