Testimonials & Results
Don't believe us.. Believe the people who have had the EventSource NW Experience!!
Well, we just finished our 8th Annual Jamie’s Heart Gala Dinner and fundraiser! We hired Troy and Scott four years ago. Our foundation was doing a lot of good but we were running out of funds to assist children with heart defects. Our major fundraiser has always been our dinner, which we hold once a year. We first met Troy and Scott at my daughter’s wedding; it was a beautiful wedding, but Troy and Scott made the reception and dance something amazing and we still talk about how much fun it was! I told our foundation president about Event NW, and we decided to hire them for our auction. Well it was the single best thing we have ever done to raise money; the first year we used Event NW we doubled what we had received from the year before! The cost was a true investment in being able to have more funds to help even more children. So now four years later, Troy and Scott are an integral part of our dinner/auction/dance, we could not do it without them! They bring energy and fun into the room! Troy and Scott always make us feel special; they know us and remember us from year to year. I observed something very, very special this year that again makes me stand back in awe of what they do. They don’t just come and setup and do their program, they become part of the evening; they mingle through the crowd, they talk to everyone- and how many DJ’s do you know who get out on the dance floor and have a blast? Troy was making sure everyone had a great time, young and old. One final note that was very moving to me, we were all cleaning up and putting stuff away at the end of our amazing evening and I noticed Scott talking with a young lady, and he truly spent time talking to her about music and what they did, and didn’t just brush her off and try and get back to putting his equipment away; he stopped and talked with this young lady for at least 20 minutes, showing her he cared. That’s true dedication, and caring about people. In a single word Troy and Scott were there to serve, not their business but all of us, and make us successful. Their true servant spirits made us all better people at the end of the evening. Thank you Troy and Scott from the bottom of our hearts, I consider you a part of our foundation family.

"We've used Troy and Scotty at our last 10 Thrive annual franchisee conferences and they have never disappointed in fact, the contrary. They are always raising the bar and energizing our event and its attendees. I highly recommend any franchise group looking to improve their event and take it to a new level use them... you won't regret it."

I can't thank you enough for Friday night. Wow! You brought your serious A game and I've had tons of great feedback about you this weekend. As of tonight we're netting $63,000! It's a 70% increase over last year. Crazy! I attached our income/expense summary so you see numbers between 2012 and 2013. Things I'm blown away by are
- live auction (doesn't include fund a need) went up $13,000
- We got 66% of FMV out of our silent items (this is up from last year too)
- Fund a Need was off the charts! I can't believe we had raised $7,000 before you ever got to the $500 bids

I just want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Troy & Scotty @ Event Source NW. They recently were the DJ's @ our wedding. They did a fabulous job keeping everyone entertained & enjoying them selves. I've known these guys for over 10 years. They have done many of our family & friends events & there's never a dull moment. AMAZING JOB! Thank you so much for being a part of our Special Day! Love you guys! Terra Maesta
Thank you just doesn't seem adequate to relay my appreciation for all your efforts. There were so many compliments and good reviews of you and Scott last Saturday...thank you for making the evening not only profitable but a heck of a great time. Lisa Akin | Canine Companions Auction

“Troy and Scotty take our charity golf tournament to another level. They are masters at keeping the environment fun and spirited, and they simultaneously find ways to invoke compassion and sympathy in our guests. With their help, our clients have a blast, but the overall focus still remains on the charity and those who benefit most from our support.”
Amy McClarren Pugh | Director of Marketing – DCI Engineers, Seattle
Matt & I (and all my family and guests) cannot begin to thank you enough for your AMAZING job/performance at our wedding on 9/15/12. I have heard nothing but compliments and utter excitement when people tell me how the wedding went and most of it (if not all) is due to your team. You absolutely MADE the wedding the success it was for everyone involved. Emily Hauser
I wanted to drop by to thank you very much for the amazing energy you and Scotty brought to Get Your Rear in Gear this weekend. As you know, I love to keep the atmosphere light and fun and I can’t imagine a better team to help us with this. Everything was well thought out and flowed smoothly. In emotional times given the colon cancer themed event it was a relief to hand the mic to you to help me recover with some positive energy and humor.
Again, thank you so much for all you do and I highly recommend you for any company or event looking for an MC.

'We love the auctioneers!' is overwhelmingly the first response we get when ask attendees how they liked our auction. People come to an auction to support a good cause, but they also want to have fun. Troy and Scotty bring the fun!

"Troy and Scotty of Events Northwest make a fantastic team. Troy was a very witty and funny M.C. for our annual auction. Scotty cues music to coincide with Troy's presentation resulting in an energized and engaged audience. We will continue to use Event's Northwest in many future Kirkland Chamber of Commerce events."
Bruce Wynn | Executive Director | Kirkland Chamber of Commerce
You and your crew were SPECTACULAR. Our employees have been raving about the holiday party, which I believe is due, in most part, to my awesomeness and yours. Absolutely LOVED working with you this year. Like I said on Friday, you are hosting each and every one of our events from now until eternity.
Thank you for everything!
Grace Ryu | Executive Asst | Clarisonic
You made our wedding at the Marriott at the RTC so fun and exactly what I had envisioned. You went so over the top to support the sound at our ceremony and you gave me the wedding of my dreams. I will recommend you to all my friends and I can't say enough about how much I appreciate you both. Lissa Dunbar

Seattle bride best of 2011; Winners of Funniest and most Professional DJ’s“Humor-plus-weddings (too often) equals awful. But in hands of Troy McVicker and Scott Branston, partners in Event Source Northwest, the combination is pure gold. The seasoned pair simply get it, blending the right balance of comedy with music while making room for love and sentiment. These are seriously professional funnymen with a whole lot of heart.”
