Dave is such an amazing DJ! With the wide variety of music we like, I was worried that it would be hard to find a DJ that was able to have the perfect playlist. Dave exceeded our expectations and was able to keep the dance floor going all night! Our night didn’t go seamlessly, we originally had the DJ equipment set up outside on the deck but it got cold and windy quickly! Dave pulled me aside and asked how I felt about moving the dance floor inside to make sure everyone was able to continue to dance and have a good time but ultimately he was willing to do whatever I wanted. I agreed that it would be best to move everything and Dave made it happen! You will definitely not have any regrets if you hire Dave as your DJ!

Dave handles pressure well. There were many challenges in 2020 and he delivered with ease, humor and great composure. Both at the welcome party and wedding, Dave entertained our guests with creative, memorable and engaging music.
Dave also produced a treasured musical montage of photos of the bride and groom, set up microphones for toasts and designed an outdoor dance floor. His proficient knowledge of audio/video technology made all the difference. And we are grateful. There were many pivots while planning this year.
In addition to being highly skilled with computer systems used in multimedia productions, Dave collaborated with the staff at both venues in a professional and caring manner.
NOVA Productions level of service and commitment made for a stellar wedding weekend.
Dave is the best DJ you can have! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night and exceeded my expectations! Everyone said they had the best time, and loved the music selection!!
Dave & Felix were an amazing duo! During my wedding and even after I had tons of my guests complimenting the both of them! We also purchased the lighting package and it truly completed everything. I highly recommend booking them as your wedding DJ.
We had the pleasure of Dave and Jose being a part of our wedding on September 5th and to say our night wouldn’t be the same without them is an understatement. These guys are professionals in every sense of the term. They read the crowd and kept the party going! Not to mention they are so nice and caring. Thank you again, Dave! You absolutely killed it and we are still getting so many compliments on how amazing you guys were!
Dave brought such a great energy to our wedding and kept the party going until the very end! To this day we still get compliments on how fun our reception was. 10/10 highly recommend! Thank you so much Dave for helping make our big day perfect!
I would recommend Dave to anyone looking for a DJ. He was absolutely amazing, easy to work with, and kept the party going. He had everyone on the dance floor the entire night. I have had so many people comment about my DJ and how he has been the best DJ they’ve ever heard! We had 200 people at our wedding and at the end of it, our dance floor was completely full and he had to turn on the lights to get people to head home. Talk about an absolute party. I will recommend Dave to anyone and everyone. He is AMAZING!
By far best wedding experience I’ve witnessed as a photographer! Dave kept the party going and was so much fun!
Dave and Felix did such a great job making our wedding reception fun, engaging, and organized! Dave was quick with answering questions I had prior to the day and took our song recommendations and ran with them. I couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and MC for our wedding and we received so many compliments from others on how great they were!
Tricia and Cesar SalgadoWedding Client I have been to several weddings in the past few years where nobody is on the dance floor, and the party ends pretty early. Not with DJ Shif-D! He traveled a long way to be at my wedding (Omaha to Las Vegas), but he had energy to spare and kept me and my guests dancing all night. In fact, the guests even yelled for an encore at the end of the night, and he played three more songs for them. My wedding was almost a week ago, and people are still talking about how much fun they had. DJ Shif-D kept the night flowing, the music playing, and the guests dancing. Thank you, for helping to make my wedding and reception such a magical evening.
Ashley K.Wedding Client When I began my search for DJ’s I started at the regular bridal fairs where places like Complete Music were offering their services. I knew that I had been to weddings they did before and I just felt that there was something majorly missing. The crowd would come on and off the floor just as quick as the music was played and for me, that was not how I envisioned my wedding night. My goals were for my dance floor to be packed at almost every point of the night and that’s exactly what I got when I hired Dave! I was lucky enough to come across Dave as he did my company’s holiday party and was I BLOWN away by how awesome the music, sound and lighting were. Based on that experience alone, I knew I wanted him to do my wedding when the time came. One of things I enjoyed most was that he actually mixed music and gauged the crowds energy instead of just queing up song after song hitting play and waiting for requests. Dave is fantastic and super easy to work with. Want to provide him a playlist of music? Do it, but I highly recommend letting him do his magic. If you are looking to have a blast of wedding, stop wasting your time and hire Dave! Looking to bump up the wow factor in your wedding? Opt for the additional lighting. Dave came to my venue to hook up the lighting and WOW, it made the ambiance 10 times better than I ever could have imagined. If you are looking for a unique DJ with an awesome personality hire Dave!
Nana & AndyWedding Client We hired Dave as our wedding DJ on the recommendation of a mutual friend. After attending numerous weddings the previous year with DJs that weren’t prepared, were super awkward emcees, and couldn’t mix music worth a damn, we saw the value in hiring a quality DJ. Dave did not disappoint. He was professional from the start; his setup was flawless; he hired a legit emcee; and he mixed music that keep people dancing until we walked out the door. Seriously, if you’re going to hire a wedding DJ, don’t go get the local company that everybody uses to play tracks off their iPod. Hire Dave, to actually mix some beats and give your special day the party it deserves.
Taylor & Jeff HankinsWedding Client My husband and I couldn’t have picked a better DJ for our wedding reception! Dave had our guests dancing the whole night and the dance floor was NEVER empty. Him and the MC were constantly interacting with our guests and even played some games! We also took advantage of the photobooth, which was a great addition to our celebration. Don’t hesitate, book now!
Hillary & Matt KringsWedding Client We were extremely pleased with Dave’s DJing and his wife’s photobooth services!! They were both very easy to work with and always quick to get back with answers to our questions from the time we booked them to the night of the wedding! Would definitely recommend to others!! Dave did not disappoint. He was professional from the start; his setup was flawless; he hired a legit emcee; and he mixed music that keep people dancing until we walked out the door. Seriously, if you’re going to hire a wedding DJ, don’t go get the local company that everybody uses to play tracks off their iPod. Hire Dave, to actually mix some beats and give your special day the party it deserves.

Carlee & ColinWedding Client As I was planning my wedding, I knew that a DJ could make or break the night. I was referred to Dave, and it was the greatest choice! Dave was always professional and responded promptly to all of my questions. Most importantly, he kept the party going all night long! Not once was our dance floor empty! Highly recommended for any event.
Molly & MasonWedding Client Omaha couldn’t be more fortunate and lucky to have Dave around! He is, HANDS DOWN, the most entertaining DJ in the Midwest! He not only gets the party started off right, but he keeps it going!! He made sure that he played songs that we specifically wanted, then he did his thing based off of my crowd, and the floor was never empty! I had so many compliments (and still do 2 years later) that my reception was “the best party [people] have ever been to” and that it “looked like a club from the back of the room”. And it was all thanks to Dave and his MC! Dave did not disappoint. He was professional from the start; his setup was flawless; he hired a legit emcee; and he mixed music that keep people dancing until we walked out the door. Seriously, if you’re going to hire a wedding DJ, don’t go get the local company that everybody uses to play tracks off their iPod. Hire Dave, to actually mix some beats and give your special day the party it deserves.
Alex & Burke ClausenWedding Client Dave and his company were amazing at our wedding! Completely exceeded any expectations we had. My husband and I would recommend Dave a million times over to anyone! Thanks again!
Mary UrtelWedding Client – 4/12/14 DJ Shif-D went above and beyond for our wedding April 12, 2014! We could not be happier with the service he provided! The lighting was spectacular and his music selection was spot on! We are still receiving compliments from our guests on how amazing he was! We have referred him (and Nova Productions) to a couple people already and we’ll continue to refer him. Thank you so much Dave for all that you did to make our special day that much better!
Sondra & Stewart AkrinWedding Client – 6/1/2013 Dave and Richie are the best in the business as far as we are concerned and did a fabulous job of getting the crowd going at our wedding. Richie did a great job of keeping things moving along and even joined in with the dancing (which the guests loved!). Dave incorporated a great mixture of music (R&B, Hip Hop, Oldies, & even Country!) to satisfy our mixed music palette. He had everyone on the dance floor and some never left until last call! Our guests are still commenting about how fun our reception was. We couldn’t have done it without these guys! Even our wedding photographer commented how amazing they were and he has seen/heard everything in this business. We are so grateful to them for helping us to create an unforgettable celebration of our wedding day!”
Jacob FrancesWedding Client I had selected Dave to DJ my wedding knowing Dave’s history as a DJ. What I didn’t know was how absolutely phenomenal him and his MC were at doing what they do! My entire wedding party and many guests made comments following the wedding how great the music and energy was that Dave and his MC added to the wedding. I have already and will continue to recommend this amazing combo to anyone getting married or needing a DJ.
Douglas GilbertWedding Client Our wedding was a great time and we definitely have you guys to thank! I have heard nothing but compliments (even from my own mother;) on the music that night. I would recommend you guys to everyone.
Amanda NovacekWedding Client Thanks again so much for doing our wedding! It was awesome and you kept the party going all night and that’s exactly what we wanted! Would totally recommend you guys to anyone and everyone! Thanks again!
Jay LaMontagneWedding Client – 7/20/14 DJ Shif-D provided us with a lot of great ideas and we came up with the perfect timeline for a great reception. We had people dancing until 11:30pm and it was a great party!
Shannon BinghamWedding Client These guys did an amazing job. We had a Sunday wedding and it had the same energy as a Saturday night wedding. They also had really cool music during dinner. Great attention to detail and really held the Crowd. Taking all of our prior wedding requests and making sure everyone was engaged. Great Dj.! I am a wedding photographable and salon owner and I will only recommend them! I have seen a lot more self and they know what they are doing. Excellent work Guys!
Lisa Schiefen HansenWedding Client I can’t say enough great things about Dave. From the our first meeting we knew we would be happy with him. We were so torn between getting a DJ or doing a band and I know that we made the right decision. Dave was super easy to work with and we were able to give him a list of do play and don’t play and he did everything we asked and more! I was a typical bride and got stressed a few days before and he was so patient and easy to work with all the last minute changes I made. My dance floor was never empty and he kept it all moving. His lighting, his MC and everything was just perfect and helped make our day what we wanted. I highly recommend DJ Shif-D if you want a wonderful DJ who will keep your guests on the dance floor all night long!
Debbie & LeeWedding Client I was referred to this DJ service via a friend, who used them for their wedding. To be honest, the music at my reception wasn’t that big of a deal to me from the get-go…until I realized just how awesome DJ Shif-D was! Not only did he encourage us to customize our event playlist, but he also was doubly sure to make sure that all parts of the evening were covered, from ceremony through shut-down. He got my entire family up onto the dance floor (without being obnoxious, because we all know sometimes MC’s can be obnoxious), and helped us deliver a fun, but classy evening for our family and friends. Pricing was reasonable, communication was A+, and he followed up in the days after our wedding to make sure we were satisfied and happy with how everything went. We customized our playlist, as well as had a cooky schedule (we cut our cake as soon as we were announced, my sisters sang our first dance song, etc.) without blinking an eye. Best decision!
Miranda IwenWedding Client Dave was amazing! He kept the party going and people really enjoyed themselves. He switched up the music so it wasn’t the same genre constantly playing which was wonderful. We received so many compliments from our guests about how much they liked our DJ. He is definitely your go to guy! Plus, book his wife as well with the photo booth. Such an amazing team.
Dasha & Nele SudarWedding Client We used DJ-Shif-D for our wedding. He played music for our cocktail hour, dinner , and reception. He made sure everything that we wanted him to play was played and also kept the wedding crowd happy. His services were above and beyond what we expected and I would definitely recommend him.
Nikki & Mike FuquaWedding Client Dave and his MC were excellent. Kept us moving as we had planned, and was able to adjust to the changes and adjustments that happened (and are bound to happen in just about any wedding I suppose). And he was more than willing to listen and consider the various songs we wanted played. I’d have no problem recommending him to others.
Tracy & Jay HynekWedding Client Dave was absolutely OUTSTANDING! He kept the party going all night, and there were constant people having the time of their life on the dance floor! There was never a dull moment, he was completely flawless with moving from song to song, and he nailed our personal music style. I can’t say enough good things about his abilities. Your wedding DJ can make or break the whole event, and Dave definitely made ours one to remember.
Jim & Jen MayotteWedding Client Dave (DJ Shif-D) & Mike Kendall did an amazing job ensureing our day went off with out any issues. We were given and example itinerary and filled in the blanks. This helped us to know what types of songs to select and when. We didnt follow the format exactly but they followed ours! They kept the night moving in a fluid motion from beginning to end. Played all the songs we asked for and didn’t play ones we asked them not to. The lights and sound quality were top notch. We have absolutely no complaints. Our guests had a blast and we are both very happy with our DJ choice. Worth every penny! Thanks Shif-D!
Jana KennedyWedding Client DJ Shif-D was incredible. He played the music for our ceremony and then took us into the reception. The music was exactly what we wanted. We danced and sang the night away with our loved ones. The planning process was smooth and easy. He handled all our formalities with ease. Music sets the tone of everything and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. The entire process went off without a hitch! Highly recommend DJ Shif-D.
Heather Plott & Ryan PlottWedding Client I just got married to the man of my dreams this past Saturday (June 11th, 2016). I wanted to take a moment and speak of the spectacular vendors we had to make our day absolutely breath taking! Our DJ and Lights was none other than Dave “DJ Shif-D” Stutsman with Nova Productions and his beautiful wife Chelsea Dixon Stutsman handles the photo booth at Pixel Box Photo Booth! These two are an awesome team! We didn’t have to worry about a thing – it was the whole package! Lights, music, the energy, the flow, the fun with the photo booth was unspeakable! Look no further – this beautiful team is your one stop shop!!
Ally & Michael HotzeWedding Client I asked everyone on Facebook who they recommended as a DJ because the one I wanted was already booked. I had a couple people recommend DJ Shif-D and I am so thankful I took their advice. He did everything I did and didn’t want him to do. I asked for certain songs to be played very loud, he did that. I had a “look” I gave him if I hated a song, he changed it. I asked him to create a personalized entrance for my entire wedding party (20 people total) and he came up with something fabulous. I have already had 2 people ask me for his info for parties because they liked him so much! TOTALLY recommend DJ Shif-D. He was so worth every penny!
Julie Berger VanRoyWedding Client DJ SHIF-D did a great job of keeping our dance interesting and it was great that he mixed one song into the next so there were no awkward transitions or excess announcements by him. He also had a separate MC for our reception dinner who did a great job of calling tables and keeping things moving. Both were very professional and I would highly recommend him.
Megan & Gabe ConradWedding Client I’m so happy with our DJ! I’ve been to wedding were the DJ literally ruins the reception and doesn’t pay attention to the guest to keep them on the dance floor. The MC kept our guests attention as they waited for our arrival and the party going and the DJ listened to what we wanted and the dance floor was packed all night long! Everyone had so much fun and I will give a lot of credit to our DJ!!
Rachelle HanischWedding Client DJ Shif-D is hands down the BEST DJ in Omaha! Our wedding was so much fun and we danced the entire evening! I was a little worried about my lack of song choices, but Dave saved the day. He took my small list of songs and was able to match our preferences perfectly! AND to top it off we have some awesome selfies taken by the man himself! Nova Productions and DJ Shif-D went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend to anyone who is in need of a DJ.
Kristina Postlewait-BoehmerWedding Client Saved our night by booking last min. The main thing, our dance floor was full the entire night up to the last song!! If you are looking for an amazing DJ he is your guy!! The music was on point and the MC he had kept the night moving. They made sure everyone was happy & dancing!
Apple & Shawn MontgomeryWedding Client Prior to hiring Dave, I’ve heard nothing but great things about him from well known djs, my friends and previous brides. We hired Dave as our dj and used his photo booth service. The whole night was perfect, beautiful and amazing! After the wedding, I had so many compliments from our guest! Dave followed exactly what we wanted and his MC knew how to get everyone dancing! My husband and I were so happy we chose Dave!!! Thank you for an unforgettable night!
I’ve known Dave for over a decade and have worked alongside him on several events (I’m a videographer). His clients were my clients.
I’ve always recommended DJ Shif-D because he’s not just a skilled professional, but attentive, caring, polite, intuitive, and helpful. He goes beyond being a DJ. He pays attention to details. He makes sure the sound is booming and the lights are pleasing.
I’ve filmed some really great shots thanks to Dave. He had the crowd going wild, hands up, dancing the night away.
Booking DJ Shif-D is a no brainer.
Shannon SorensenWedding Client If you’re getting married; Dave and one of his MC’s are exactly what you want/need for your big day. My husband and I have nothing but good things to say about them. Thanks, guys!!!!
Brad & AdrianaWedding Client If you’re looking for a DJ, look no further! Dave was our wedding DJ and he did an amazing job. He arrived early and made sure everything was setup and running well. He put lights up around Bella Terre which added to the ambiance of the venue. The MC talked with me to make sure he had all the pronunciations of the names correct and kept everything on track. Our first dance was absolutely perfect with Dave’s fog machine and gave us some of the best pictures of the wedding. The way the fog hung around the floor and the way my wife’s dress kicked it up was amazing. After dinner we played a dollar game to see who at the table had to go get everyone drinks. Then the dance floor came alive. The music, lights and fog machine were perfect. It was easy for anyone to make requests for specific songs. He had a nice mix of slow and fast songs and kept the dance floor going all the way until the end of our reception.
Kaitlyn & StephenWedding Client I cannot thank Dave and Felix enough for making our wedding reception so great! We had so many compliments about how fun of a wedding we had and I have never been to a wedding where so many guests were on the dance floor. They checked in with us often throughout the night and let us know exactly what was going on. If there is one thing I would do again for our wedding it would 100% be to have these guys! If you want to make sure all your guests have an amazing night, these are your guys!
Cassandra & BrendenWedding Client Thanks to Dave and Felix everyone had a great time at our wedding reception and still talk about it to this day!! He played all the songs I had requested and threw in his own that kept everyone on the dance floor. I hope they are both at every wedding reception that I go to in the future! He checked in with us throughout the night to make sure everything was going how we wanted and knew when to slow things down for a minute and play a game. Thank you both so much for making our celebration even better!
Susan & Josh
Dave DJ’ed our wedding and was FANTASTIC. He had the dance floor packed all night long. Several people commented it was the best party they had been to! We got the Ultimate Package that came with lights which really make the dance floor awesome! HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend! Seriously, book him!
Lauren & Lukas
First we booked the Church. Then we booked Dave. Everything else was planned around these two most important factors! Dave and MC Kendell made our reception what it was and we could not have asked for more! People who do not dance, danced at our reception. Everyone just loved you Dave! I knew you had to be my wedding DJ when I met you over a decade ago, thank you so much for everything!
I booked Dave sight unseen based on other reviews for my daughter’s wedding reception in Lincoln and was amazed at the way they engaged our guests and made sure everyone was having fun the entire evening. Way way above normal DJ service.
Megan & Michael
Dave and Keenan were with us Friday night for our reception. The dance floor was never empty!!! We received so many compliments on the music played. I would highly recommend DJ Shif-D! They also provided the photo booth for our reception which was a hit!
Erin & Cameron
Dave did an amazing job with our wedding this past weekend! We got so many compliments on our DJ & so many people asking for his card. He really knows how to read a crowd & keep the dance floor full all night long! He’s not your average cookie-cutter Dj that just pushes play on his laptop. He’s definitely a professional & a master of his craft. I would highly recommend him!
Elena Andreea Jordache- ShnayderClient Dave AKA Shif-D is an excellent and talented artist professional, caring, and well organized individual. I highly recommend Dave at NOVA Productions for any event and production! Thank you Dave for all you do for our family and the community! 5 STARS all day, everyday
Jay & MelissaWedding Client Excellent DJ and lighting service. Dave traveled to Lincoln for our May 20th wedding. Also provided amazing venue lighting. This wasn’t just the ‘standard’ wedding lighting, where they have cheap lights on a truss above the dj booth, Dave had ambient lighting throughout the entire venue, up-lighting that moved across the ceiling, other various lights around the dance floor, haze and fog machines – it was way beyond any wedding lighting setup I’ve ever seen. Dave also communicated extremely well with us throughout our entire wedding planning process and never had any problems with our dozens of music changes leading up to our big day. My wife and I had met through music, so the music was extremely important to us. And, it’s hard picking that 1 perfect song, so we changed our minds over and over again and that was never an issue with Dave. Also, if you’re wedding planning; request to have Felix MC your wedding. That guy is amazing, gets the crowd involved, gets people hyped up, has fun games for everyone (not just the kids) at your wedding reception. A huge thank you to Dave Stutsman and Felix, we wouldn’t have had it any different!
Brooke & JonWedding Client Dave and his MC were so easy and great to work with and helped make our wedding day even better than what we could have hoped for! From the buffet line, to speeches, and the transition to the dance – perfect! We had guests on the dance floor until the last song was over, so fun! I would recommend Dave and his team to anyone.
Natalie & BrianWedding Client Thanks to Dave Stutsman for the great DJ service at our wedding reception! Music was very important to us and Dave delivered great music that flowed throughout the evening from cocktail, dinner, to the fun dancing! The emcee had a great voice and did a great job announcing us when the bride/groom arrived. We had happy guests and dancing so we are happy customers.
David & Rachel
We hired Dave for our Wedding in Nebraska City and he was absolutely amazing. His communication from start to finish was always clear and prompt. Dave took care of the sound and music at the ceremony as well as the DJing at the reception. The music was great, the lights were beautiful, and we received amazing feedback from our guests. Dave went above and beyond to make our night special. While many things stood out that night, the one that makes me smile the most was Dave helping my wife get her food and deliver it to our table for her. It’s the simple things that make businesses like this stand out. We highly recommend Nova Productions for any and all event needs. Can’t thank you enough, Dave!
Jake & Cassidy
Dave was seriously AMAZING on our big day. He arrived early and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. He even carried my food to the head table and constantly asked if he could get me anything – which is super helpful especially during the reception when everyone wants to talk to you. He made sure that people were having fun and the music was exactly what we wanted. Good DJ’s make a huge difference during weddings and he was THE BEST that I have ever seen. The lights were amazing and our first dance felt like we were in the clouds with the dry ice. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dave. Thank you for making our day the best day of my life!
Adam & Kaylee
Dave and his MC were 10 out of 10. Lots of compliments on there service and they keep the energy and vibes going through the entire process. He did our ceremony as well and was right on cue for the whole thing. Can’t recommend him enough.
