“…having a professional to get honest advice from was priceless!”
First and foremost, I noticed that Alan really LISTENED to what we wanted in a DJ, our tastes in music, the style of reception, etc. We met him at a wedding show, and he stood out immediately from the other DJs we had spoken with who only seemed interested in talking about themselves! He clearly genuinely cared about making our day the best it could be!
We were very impressed with how he went out of his way to contact our other vendors and collaborate with them so that everyone was on the same page. Our reception went so smoothly – we didn’t feel the need to be managing the evening because Alan was doing much of it for us! Above and beyond what we expected from a DJ.
Definitely not just another gig for Alan, seeing as he took the time to visit our venue beforehand with us and do a full walk-around to plan everything. We never once felt like we were just another event for him. He was very thorough in asking us anything and everything about ourselves and what we wanted so that he could truly personalize his services.
We feel that our wedding went more smoothly having Alan involved. He gave some great advice (without being pushy) about what types of songs to play and when, and we especially appreciated hearing his thoughts on the order of events during the reception, which we really had no clue about. You can read all the wedding planning books, but having a professional to get honest advice from was priceless!
We appreciated that he did everything possible so that his setup and equipment blended in to the decor of the reception. He clearly wasn’t in it for the “exposure”, which we appreciated. Our families commented later on his professionalism and very pleasant demeanor. The sound quality was wonderful, despite our location being a challenge to equip.
We were very pleased with his music choices, as well as how he incorporated the songs we wanted. We were most concerned with the ceremony music, since it seemed to us to be pretty complicated (with all the pre-ceremony music, different selections for entrances, plus exit and post-ceremony), but it went flawlessly! Also, he noticed that toward the end of the evening, the songs getting everyone riled up were rock classics, so he just kept playing them till everyone dropped! Perfect!
We’d absolutely recommend him! If you’re looking for a DJ/MC who will make your event classy, fun, and tailored to YOU, meet with Alan and you won’t be disappointed!
