Jay (and his team of wife and son) were great. They made sure to play all of the songs we wanted to hear on our special day. We loved that he wanted us to give him a "Do not play" list. Although it was pretty hot on our wedding day, he made sure to stay outside for the sake of the party. We would definitely recommend him.

We contracted Gordon to do the DJing for our wedding. We gave him a list of exactly what we wanted played and he didn't follow it at all. We had mostly up-beat music on our playlist for the dancing portion of our reception. He ended up playing what we assume was his own selection which involved over 50% of music we didn't request. Not awful but we don't recommend him.

Upon discussion with the venue, DJ & several other vendors at the wedding I found this version of events almost completely unfounded. Gordon has several other excellent reviews on this page.

I used 20 South Productions to find my ceremony musicians. I also contacted them to find a DJ, but ended up not going with any of their suggestions. The booking manager Chris seemed a little brusque and almost put out to help me or answer questions, but the ceremony musicians were wonderful. I booked The Bluebird Group in Charlottesville, VA, which consisted of a trio of a classical guitar, violin and flute. Maxx, the flutist and leader, was wonderful in helping me choose my music for the processional and recessional and she was able to make beautiful arrangements for the hymns I wanted during the ceremony. Overall I was happy that I booked the trio, but I would contact groups individually if possible.

I am honestly very surprised by this. We went through over 15 emails finding the right group for her. I responded quickly & politely to every one and even helped her with insurance for the event. I can only think that she mistook concise with “brusque” I enjoy helping people with their weddings!

We used 20 South Productions to hire our DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception. DJ Pauly Madison had great prices and a great personality. We were very happy with his services leading up to the wedding. We had several Skype chats and phone calls with him to plan our event and we appreciated his responsiveness. He is a professional DJ with experience and it showed on our wedding day. He played the songs that we asked for, the way that we asked for them and we were pleased with his DJ skills. He also has a nice online planner that is helpful when choosing your song list. We were very happy we chose Pauly and our guests had a lot of fun on the dance floor!

My wife and I were most impressed with the quality of 20 South in providing the DJ and MC duties at our daughter's wedding at Keswick Vineyards. From his handling of MC duties to his impeccable timing of the playlist, Pauly Madison was the consumate professional. Even when he had a problem with a microphone, he had it fixed in a jiffy and never missed a beat. He seamlessly integrated some additional toasts from my long winded family, which was much appreciated. If you're looking for a professional outfit to handle your wedding, 20 South is the way to go!

We contracted with Gordon Hahn through 20 South Productions to be a DJ for our reception. We wanted a DJ who would stay more in the background while helping keep the evening flowing. Gordon did an excellent job at picking music selections. Our guests were on the dance floor the entire evening. We loved his song selections and danced the night away! (and our families usually aren't big dancers so we were very impressed!) The only thing we wished might have been different is that he played music during my dad's toast (father of the bride) and we had to send a groomsman to tell him to turn it off because it was too distracting. Other than that, it was a fabulous evening! We were very glad that we paid money for an extra hour of music on top of the normal 4 hours. It was totally worth it!

We worked with Chris at 20 South to book Adam Carter, an outstanding local cellist, to play at our ceremony. Chris was extremely helpful, responsive, and professional, and he worked with us to find a cello soloist, something they don't usually offer. Adam did a terrific job, arranged to rehearse beforehand with our church organist, and the two played a beautiful duet together.

We hired Mike Offner, one of the DJs that Chris from 20 South suggested. He gave us an extensive list to choose from, but I feel we made the right choice with Mike. He was very polite and professional, and played the "right" songs from our suggestion list (filled with tunes from the 70s contributed by our parents). Furthermore, he kept the party going, and everyone had a great time. The booking process was hassle-free (and eco-friendly). I would definitely recommend this vendor!
