When looking for a DJ for your wedding, one can receive many suggestions but please after reading this, book Dj Abster!
I started looking at Djs for our upcoming wedding. I had contacted a few and hit a wall-very poor response time UNTIL I emailed Abby. She got back to me immediately & sent me a contract. Along the planning process she was very responsive-answered a lot of our questions and even combined two songs to make my Father/Daughter dance extra special. DJ Abster is FUN & EXTREMELY professional. My dance floor was packed the entire night! Book her and you will not sorry!
Thank you again, Abby!

We had the pleasure of having Abby as our DJ on our wedding day for both our ceremony and our reception. Our experience with Abby was great from the start! She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and was so helpful! She was also more than willing to travel to Appleton, WI for our wedding day. When it came to the ceremony, our music ran exactly how we hoped it would. And let me tell you, Abby definitely knows how to keep people (of all ages) on the dance floor all night long! We had so many compliments from our guests!
Abby was able to take our vision for our musical selections of our day and help make it a reality! Abby is a wonderful, professional DJ that I would recommend!

My husband Kyle and I have nothing but good things to say about Abby from Abster’s DJ Service. I was put in contact with Abby through a mutual friend that I went to grade school with. I contacted Abby about what kind of DJ packages she offered and the prices. She contacted me in a timely manner and was cheaper than every other place that I had contacted. So, my husband and booked her on the spot. She also let us put a down payment on our package even though we did not have to pay until the night of the wedding.
One thing I remember that really stuck out in my mind about Abby is that she is very organized with her business. My Bridesmaids and I choreographed a dance to perform at the wedding. My Maid of Honor had her brother do up some special effects and to shorten the song for us. I forgot to mention this to Abby until about a week before the wedding that we were doing a choreographed song and she had no problem receiving the track the night before the wedding and adding it to our list of dance songs.
We had only planned on having Abby for our reception, but due to us not getting married in a Church we needed music for the ceremony. Abby was happy to help us on that end of the line by adding it to our package and giving us websites on where to find good songs for our ceremony. She also dealt with our last minute decision on having our wedding inside if it rained or outside if it was nice weather. She is very flexible in helping make your day what you want it to be.
All of our wedding party was on the dance floor all night long and they said, “It was the Best Wedding Dance they had ever been to.” They had never danced so much at another wedding because all the songs were great songs to dance to and Abby played their requests in a timely manner. We would highly recommend Abby to anyone looking for a helpful, inexpensive, and fun DJ.
Word of warning, book her IMMEDIATELY, she books up fast!

“Abster's DJ service was amazing for My wedding this past October! Abby made it super easy and stress free by meeting with me early, having me fill me out a simple sheet of time, place, and special songs to play. I loved how she told me to just make a list of what songs Travis and I wanted to hear, and she played whatever was on there! We had a lot of compliments on our wedding and I have her to thank for a big part of that! She had everyone on the dance floor till the last song, plus an encore. Thanks Abby for making my day special and I would/will recommend you to anyone that needs a DJ!

We had an awesome experience with Abby as our DJ! She answered all of our questions and left us worry free for our big day! My maid of honor sang her speech and needed extra microphones. Abby quickly got everything set up for her and ready to go without any issues. Abby was also extremely accommodating in helping her set up to play and sing our first dance song as well. As the dance started, she had people on the floor all through the night with upbeat popular songs. As we were leaving, we were told that our venue had a few “snoozers” the last few weeks and that it was great to see so many on the dance floor having fun. We would highly recommend Abby for any of your DJ needs. She is extremely accommodating, friendly, and FUN!

What a night!!! I met Abby in college marching band about 7 years ago and we were recently reunited at the nuptials of another former band member. I was extremely impressed by the business that Abby has built for herself. She definitely made the wedding one to remember! Abby was very accommodating to guests’ song requests, as well as the wishes of the bride and groom. She kept the dance floor full all night long by playing a great variety of music for everyone to enjoy! I would highly recommend Abster’s DJ Service to anyone looking for a fun, professional, and personable DJ! Thanks for again for an awesome night, Abby!
-Tricia Yearous/Noel Wedding Guest August 2nd 2013
Abby is an exceptional DJ! I'm so glad I recommended her to my brother and his new bride! Their dance floor was packed and literally hopping all night long! We had such a great time with Abster's DJ Service and I would never recommend anyone, but her! Can't wait until I get the opportunity to snatch her up someday as I'm sure that will be the easiest decision I make! Thanks for the great memories, Abby!

With only 6 months to plan a wedding, it was just crazy to find a DJ who was reasonably priced and fit our needs! Abby's DJ Service was just the thing! She answered all my questions in a very timely matter! I didn't have to worry about when I was going to get a response because she was right on top of things! Before she even DJ'd for us, she let us pick out our songs we wanted and a list of requests that us a a bride and groom would want to hear that night. She made a playlist ahead of time and was very prepared!She did our reception background music and it was great! Not too loud but just enough to hear it! She has a great selection of music! She was great on making sure we had the microphone when we needed it! Abby kept everyone on the dance floor all night long, and never down! She even made it out to the dance floor herself to have a good time! It was awesome! She was very patient with us, as my dad had to leave to feed our horses and came back fashionably late, to make sure we had a wonderful father/daughter dance! She worked hard on fitting what we wanted and was very flexible the night of our wedding with all the craziness! Thank you again for making our day special! I would recommend her for any event, not just weddings!

My husband and I were looking for a fun, entertaining and reasonably priced DJ for our wedding…and we found just that! WE had such a great time… she definitely made the wedding so much more fun than what it could have been! I would recommend her to EVERYONE! Not only that; but she was so helpful with any questions I had and helped me pick out the PERFECT music for all the 1st dances.Definitely, if anyone is contemplating who to use as a DJ: definitely book Abster’s DJ Service!! :)
-Damian & Amie ChristieDecember 22, 2012
We were looking for a DJ that was reasonably priced, but also one that knew what they were doing. Abby did a wonderful job from the very beginning. We were referred to her and are so happy that we chose her. She was very accommodating to us and met with us when needed. She answered any questions we had throughout the whole process and actually was able to play at our wedding also. When we arrived at our reception hall she was all set up and ready to play music throughout supper time.She was able to get everyone on the dance floor and keep everyone entertained throughout the whole night. We had people begging for more songs at the end of the night. Everyone commented on what a wonderful job she did and my brother has actually decided to use her for his upcoming wedding as well! VERY IMPRESSED and would recommend her to anyone that may need a DJ for their wedding. Thanks, Abby

Four scrapes. Three blisters. Two pulled calf muscles. And, One heck of a good time! The last of which is guaranteed if you choose Abby Brueggen of Absters DJ Service to DJ your wedding or next event! Abby is a professional from the start and has perfected her skill to its finest. Let me just tell you how amazing she did—from start to finish.
First of all, Abby is always prepared. She makes things easy from the get-go. As a bride, you already have enough stress to try to balance in your life (at least I did ). At our initial consultation, Abby reiterated and emphasized over and over, “I’m here to make you less stressed, this will be the easiest part of your wedding!” And, let me tell you, it was. She prepared all of our music and had recommendations for us whenever we needed an extra hand. When my husband and I decided to do a non-traditional first dance, Abby was there right with us, helping us every inch of the way. Not to mention, Abby shined even when it came to the small stuff. Like always being on time and sending out messages to keep me updated. Towards the end, I couldn’t keep anything straight and Abby always had me on my toes.
She took care of “running the show” at the reception and made sure guests knew what was going on and what to expect next. Whether it was big or small, she always came through for us.Another important factor, a wedding is expensive. But, Abby is affordable and you get every bang for your buck! Some of the DJ services in the Coulee Region start their prices several hundred dollars higher then Abby’s most expensive package. But don’t be fooled, she ranks just as high in quality as they do. I think all brides and grooms can appreciate an honest, outstanding, and affordable DJ!
In addition, Abby had top-of-the-line “DJ-ing” equipment. She provided us with lights to shine up the reception space—which really do add a great touch. The quality of her music and audio is unsurpassed. And, an additional feature that was very appreciated was that she provided our wedding party with a cordless microphone for all speeches (a touch my husband and I had not thought of). She truly does an exceptional job!Lastly, and to me, most importantly, Abby personalized her services for us. I am a 90’s child at heart and she went out of her way to play songs my wedding party and myself really enjoyed. With these tactics, she kept the dance floor packed all night long!
People continually commented, “Krista, it’s like she knows every single one of your favorite songs!” It was truly exceptional. She also went above and beyond for our grand march. Our wedding had a Chicago Cubs theme and she was able to find and play the song the team plays when they win called “Go Cubs Go.” It was a hit and perfect for the overall feel of our entire day!
I would gladly take the scrapes, blisters, and pulled muscles all over again to experience the joy and happiness my husband and I had on the dance floor that night! Abby didn’t miss a beat the whole evening (Pun intended!) and we are SO thankful she was a special and key part of our wedding! Take it from this bride, booking her will be the easiest and likely the most memorable decision you will make for your big day! Thanks Abby!
-Krista & Jeremy Kirchner (Wyss)August 11, 2012
Abby Brueggen with Absters DJ Service kept all of our guests on the floor and danced the night away, thank you for letting the Air-Band make an appearance during the dance and using your sound equipment. ONCE AGAIN, I HIGHLY RECOMENDER HER FOR ANY ENTERTAINMENT YOU NEED! You are a delightful and personable lady and we can’t thank you enough.
-Reagan & Travis Lee (Peterson)August 25th, 2012
Abby was so wonderful to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional and was more than helpful from start to finish. She was able to answer all of my questions with ease and was willing to help in every way possible! Not only did Abby DJ our reception, but she also provided the sound equipment for our ceremony. She coordinated everything with the guitarist and it all sounded beautiful! Additionally, she worked behind the scenes with my parents to provide a special gift of music during the ceremony. Abby's music kept our dance party going all night long! There wasn't one time during the night that the dance floor wasn't full. She had an immediate read on our group and played music that kept people smiling, laughing, and dancing throughout the entire reception. We are so thankful that we chose Abby as our DJ- we couldn't have been happier!
-Paula Blattner (Bride)July 21st 2012
Abby was awesome from the minute she entered my sisters wedding venue! She got everyones attention and entertained from the minute the wedding party arrived all the way until the last dance at the end of the day! an awesome variety of music and a wonderful person to work with for any event!
-Nick Quamme, Brother of the BrideMay 12, 2012
Abby was a great addition to my sister's wedding day. She entertained the crowd, made sure everyone was happy, and really kept the whole night running smoothly. Awesome selection of music and a very kind, entertaining person to have around!
-Mark Quamme, Brother of the Bride May 12, 2012
Abby Brueggen of Abster's DJ Service is professional, courteous, and fun! I first learned about Abby at an event for school at UW- La Crosse. Abby catered to the college age crowd at the event playing the music you would often here at clubs, bars, or on the radio. My husband and I decided to book Abby not only because of her professionalism but for her price as well. Abby showed her professionalism to us by sending us a contract immediately to show her products and services. She was also easy to get a hold of whether it was by phone, e-mail, or social network. She answered all my questions about the contract and explained things in detail if it wasd needed. On the wedding day, Abby was incredibly courteous and fun. A few people requested minor tweaks to her services during the dinner and she willingly obliged. Once the traditional "first dance" songs were over, she kept the dance floor PACKED with people exhibiting high energy, and lots of fun. I had so many people coming up to me asking who our DJ was and where she was from. I was happy to share the information with them as they said she was one of the best DJ's they had heard in a long time. My favorite part of Abby's services was how personal she made things for us. She asked for a song list including songs to play and songs NOT to play. She also asked us (the bride and groom) what our likes and dislikes were and did her best to cater to those. My absolute favorite part of the night was when Abby incoporated something into our playlist that not only reflected who we are as a couple but who we are amongst friends. Abby played a rendition of "Hey Baby" as performed by the Screaming Eagles Marching Band from UW-La Crosse. The tradition of this song in the band was transferred into the reception where marching band members in attendance, along with others serenaded the bride. I was just so amazed how personal she made the moment, especially as she could have chosen the original version of "Hey Baby" but instead chose a song that we had a real connection to. Overall, I can't say enough things about Abby Brueggen of Abster's DJ Service. She is an outstanding human being and one incredible DJ. For the price and the experience, I would BOOK HER immediately. You seriously WON'T regret it.

Everything was great! Good selection! I got a lot of comments from people about how much fun they had at our reception!
-Bobbi & Paul Medinger (Bride and Groom)
Great DJ service! Fun, energetic and great sounding. What you need to kick your party off right! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quality DJ service!
- David Sonnenburg (Great River Photography)
We chose Abby for our wedding and let me say that she was phenomenal!! We had problems with an earlier dj who dropped out and Abby was able to provide for us within a very short time period. Her selection was perfect, and she was completely open to suggestions for music types and working within our plans. I'm truly glad that she ended up being our dj instead of our previous. I received so many compliments on how great the music was and was told time and again that ours was the most fun wedding dance that many people had ever attended. Abby's price is perfect, her song selection is top notch, and she will make your event a perfect night to remember!
-Zach and Emily Kuschel (Bride and Groom)
AWESOME DJ service! Fun and upbeat. Professional and organized. Our wedding dance was so much fun and a lot of that had to do with who we hired for our DJ. We live in Milwaukee and easily could have hired someone from here to DJ our wedding, but Abby was willing to come to Milwaukee to make our night unforgettable. Would totally recommend Abby! Great DJ!!!!!
-Melanie and Tony Krueger (Bride and Groom)March 2011
Abster's DJ Service, was terrific! She has the best music and she knows how to get your wedding or event started & continue to keep going! I honestly could say that there was not a moment there was people off the dance floor. In fact we kept the dancing up until the very end. She did a fantastic job & if I ever have a party again I know who to call for being my dj. Great Job Abby! Thank you so much!
- Rob & Jen AllenJune 19, 2010
Everything was excellent! The variety of music was great and Abby took requests all night long! Our dance was a great time as our friends and family still talk about the excellent DJ we had! Would defnitely recommend Abster's DJ Service! Thanks for the memories Abby!
-Matt and Alicia Phillips (Bride and Groom)
All I can say is AMAZING. Abby is a true entertainer and really knows how to work the crowd! I highly recommend this DJ service : ).
-Matthew & Maria Johnson May 7th, 2011 Wedding
Abby was great to work with right from the start. Her rates were exceptional and she worked with what we wanted to hear. At the reception she kept the party going by playing both what people were requesting and also feeding off what was keeping people going. The tables were empty as the entire group was dancing the night away instead of sitting around. Thanks for making our night awesome and worry-free!
-Kevin and Sasha Schnell (Bride and Groom)
