    3 pages of a response w all facts would not fit in this review box. For anyone other than Monique, that would like these 3 pages and Auto Accident reports as to why and how our last photo booth was damaged and unable to make it to their event. Proof of us assisting them with locating another operator, Any screenshots, recordings, photos, videos of amazing event. Modus Operandi has most certainly been to achieve EVERYTHING FOR NOTHING. WE TRAVELED FROM JACKSON CA TO LAKE TAHOE TO Accommodate. DJ RECEIVED A $200 TIP. TO LATER GET A 1 STAR REVIEW. AS PRESIDENT AND SOLE OWNER OF THIS CORPORATION, WE HAVE GONE 5,000% OUT OF OUR WAY TO Accommodate AS TO ME THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS RIGHT. YOU CAN SEE SEVERAL REVIEWS SHE HAS LEFT WITH OTHER COMPANIES SAYING THE SAME. DJ COOPER IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE MOST KIND, HONEST, SWEET, RESPECTFUL, HELPFUL, EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE person that we have ever had the honor to know. When we ask him to run an event, he does just that. HE RUNS AND PERFECTS THAT EVENT, EVERY TIME! We have always had nothing but amazing compliments made about Corey from a business standpoint or personal. (INCLUDING MANY 5 STAR REVIEWS, by the way.) List of issues: 1. Actually, DJ COOPER always dresses very professionally and we were all told “his uniform colors and outfit would be perfect as we always ask” 2. Corey explained that the decision was up to them but based on the weather they may not want to hear continual wind and were all in agreement of the other opt. You chose to have your event on a very windy beach and even the highest quality mic will pick up every noise. 3. Event Advantage Corporation is not responsible for the QUALITY of the extension cords THAT THE VENUE OR COUPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO PROVIDE. None of our MICS had issues before or after this event. Losing power to the SPEAKER is an issue, esp. If the cord that you chose to use is not functioning properly. 4. We create timelines for our clients based on information given in our packet or lack there of. If you do not fill in all of your paperwork, you may get questions during your event. IT takes 2 positive parties to create a great event. DJ COOPER does 3 events a week minimum and has for over a decade…..he always knows how to conduct himself at an event or personally for that matter. 5. Walked in off que and before song was ready. 6. ACTUALLY, DJ’S USE PROGRAMS THAT NEED WIFI AS THEY HOLD MILLIONS OF SONGS ONLINE. When you are actually a DJ you know such things. Our DJ asked for the wifi 6 times and could not locate anyone who knew the wifi password. We had asked a day prior for this information and was never given this. 7. UNTRUE. 8. He took at least a dozen smoke breaks in a 4 hour period. Our DJ WAS TOO busy to actually take this many breaks and this is beyond entertaining. DJ Cooper a;so does not smoke, Where is #9...???? 10. WIFI password was needed… 11. DJ COOPER LOL IS ACTUALLY extremely versed in all GENRES as he is actually traveling on TOUR as a DJ and PRODUCER to JAPAN as we write this. I can show you his tickets, beats that he created and give you countless Artists that he promotes, encourages, helps, mentors, and works with. Now that I am done explaining our side of things, I will conclude that I have contacted our Corporate Attorney. Our next step is a Harassment Suit as we cannot handle anymore phone calls, emails, texts, reviews and would kindly ask for the 17th time for this to stop. HOWEVER, AS THE PRESIDENT AND OWNER OF THIS AMAZING LIFELONG DREAM EVENT CORPORATION….I REFUSE TO TOLERATE YOUR NEGATIVE CHILDISH BEHAVIOR AND AGAIN AM SO SORRY THAT YOU PERSONALLY HAVE CHOSEN TO BE SO UNHAPPY, FORCEFUL, RUDE, AND VOLATILE. THE SADDEST PART OUT OF THIS, IS THAT THIS WILL BE YOUR MEMORY FOREVER...YOUR FOUL BEHAVIOR WHILE I CHOOSE TO PREVAIL IN LOVE, LIGHT, HONESTY AND TRUST. Lou is a CR minister and I am a Minister...we are not liars. God Bless You.
