Describe your DJ style:
We "customize" each and every event especially for you!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No, you can request any song you would like. Keep in mind however that during a typical 4 to 5 hour event you can only play approximately 60 to 70 songs.
What is your usual attire?
We always dress professionally in either Tuxedo or Shirt and Tie, YOU decide!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, we can typically find any song you request prior to the event. We have millions of songs available and our rule of thumb is if you hear it on the radio on ANY radio station, we typically already have it! Plus we only carry the "Clean Radio Safe" Versions!
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have a total of 14 Professionally Trained DJ/MC's
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Packages available for all time limits
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! In fact, we Encourage It!
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Yes, we are specialists!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! And if it's on the Do Not Play List, It WILL NOT be Played, Guaranteed! On the other end of the spectrum, if you list a song on the Must Play list, it WILL BE PLAYED, Guaranteed!
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes

Yes! We offer a full line of options available including PHOTO/VIDEO Booths, Dance Floor Lighting, Monograms, Up Lighting, Additional Sound, Ceremony Music, and much more!

A Standard Package Set Up Time is only 20 Minutes. We do ask for either a Four or Six Foot Skirted table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No, for a typical set up no additional space is required.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
NEVER! We believe if a guest is interested in our services (which there typically are several at each event) they will approach us and request a card. We do display cards on our table, lying flat so people may pick them up while passing our table or dancing.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, we are Professional DJ/MC's. We will be as intereactive as you would like. It's Your Reception...Your Way!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
During a fast set if you lose a crowd the best bet is to simply play a slow song. You will generally fill the floor and then come out with a Party Favorite which will energize the floor.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take a break (unless you have an event where you request us to for a presentation etc.). We do not require a meal.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
If you need music during a break that you request it can be arranged.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We ALWAYS have a backup DJ for EVERY event so this has never been a problem It's part of our EXCLUSIVE GUARANTEE! Ask us about it!

Absolutely amazing! Bobby was our DJ and I can't say enough great things about him. He even stayed 30 minutes later because our guests were having such a blast; such a fun mix of dance songs from throw backs to top 100.

Additionally the planning process could not have been better- they had an online form to request songs, set an agenda and alleviate any questions. Both Steve and Bobby were also more than responsive in edits to songs and went above and beyond in creating a few introduction mixes for us.

I can't tell you how many of our guests have told us what amazing music we had. With Bobby there I didn't have to worry about a thing- he kept everything going so smoothly! I will only use Steve Bender productions again for any event moving forward.

We knew we wanted Bobby to be our DJ after he worked our friend's wedding. When we looked into the price and met with Steve Bender, we were sold that Bobby was the guy for us. Our high expectations were met every step of the way. He even met with our venue to be sure everything was just right. I highly recommend Steve Bender Productions, particularly Bobby. He called tables as needed at dinner without too much talking or silly games. He moved throughout the venue as needed due to dinner on one floor and dancing on the other with no additional fees and got right down to the business of playing great music that we loved. Highly recommend!

Steve was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very very affordable and the package included the uplighting which with other companies would've been an additional charge. I did all my research before meeting with him and couldn't have been happier with my decision. I actually had Steve himself DJ my wedding! It was easy to add songs to the list thru his online site and making payments were easy as well.

We worked with Steve Bender Productions for our wedding on August 31st, 2014 in Cincinnati, OH.

DJ Bobby Leach was the DJ/MC for our reception and we could not be more thrilled with the incredible job he did! Before the wedding he was always willing to speak or meet with us and walk us through the next steps we would need to take. He was really helpful with last-minute questions and was always calm and proactive in his approach.

The wedding itself was truly amazing. From beginning to end Bobby had a great feel for the audience and always kept the crowd dancing and having fun with his great music choices and personal DJ style. He kept the party going right up to the end! A great DJ was really important to us for our wedding, and with Bobby we are so thrilled and couldn't have asked for a better experience. We would recommend him to anyone!

We also worked with this company to hire a photobooth, uplighting, and a projector. We worked with Steve and Bobby together on many of these things and again were thrilled with the result - all three items were run professionally and seamlessly! To say we are happy customers would be an understatement.

We used Steve Bender Productions for our wedding on August 30, 2014 at The Phoenix in Cincinnati. We had the privilege of working with Bobby; he was amazing!

My dad and I had one of those "special dances" planned and I needed to get the play list to Bobby before the wedding; without my fiancé knowing about it---since it was a surprise! There ended up being a glitch with the mix we created and Bobby bent over backwards to make sure everything was working as it should---did I mention this was the day before the wedding?!

On the wedding day, Bobby kept everyone on the dance floor and provided the perfect mix of music! We could not have been more pleased with our experience! Thanks, Bobby!

When we set off planning our wedding, one of the most important aspects to us was to make it a fun party with good music. Steve Bender made it easy for us as we planned our wedding out-of-state, having a video conference with us to discuss our style and also making the client website available for us to refer to during the year leading up to the wedding. I always had a quick response when sending a message through the client portal. Steve set us up with his DJ, Bobby, who we couldn't have been happier with! We knew our reception was in good hands. Bobby was there plenty early to set up, everything the entire night went smoothly with the toasts, introductions, and first dances. During dinner, we'd asked him to play classic jazz music and he made a perfect playlist, and most importantly, the music was at the perfect level so guests could still chat with one another. As for the reception -- we had so many guests tell us it was the most fun they'd had at a wedding reception. The music and ambiance was perfect and we are so thankful and happy with Steve Bender's DJ services!!

We contracted Steve Bender Productions DJ services for our daughter's wedding reception which was held at the Art of Entertaining in Cincinnati. During my initial contact with Steve, he explained how our daughter could create a template for the reception events as well as customize the playlist from thousands of song titles available on his website. She thoroughly enjoyed the easy process of planning her dream reception using this template. And, what a PERFECT evening it was thanks to the professional expertise of DJ Bobby Leach, who seamlessly and masterfully directed the reception events and music. The bride and groom, my husband and I, along with our guests, had the best time ever!!! It was a beautiful wedding day made even more memorable by the DJ services provided by Steve Bender Productions. They are absolutely the best!!!!

We had Steve Bender DJ our 11/9/13 wedding and couldn't be happier with the service that we were provided. Filling out his online form for what music we wanted was very easy (you could even listen to samples of songs on his huge online database), and Steve was able to find and play all of our songs (even songs that didn't appear on the database!). My husband and I didn't put a lot of effort into the planning of our music, so we were so thankful when Steve came in and really "read the crowd" and had a fantastic music selection that kept our guests on the dance floor all night. There were guests that "never dance at weddings" that were up on the dance floor within 30 mins of the music playing! During the whole wedding Steve had a great attitude. His positive, non-stressful manner allowed for us to really enjoy ourselves with our guests while Steve handled the timeline of our night. He even coordinated with our caterer and other vendors which took a load off our plate. I'd highly recommend Steve to any couple looking for a DJ in the Cincinnati area!

Steve was great. He was the one who actually DJ'ed our wedding, and he completely put my mind at ease regarding everything. I filled out my online planner, and provided him with all of the information he needed, and he took it from there. He did a great job of directing both the ceremony and the reception. I didn't have to worry about corralling people, or making sure the night flowed the way I wanted to...because Steve took care of it all. He communicated with my photographer and my caterer so that they would know and be ready for the cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc. Choose Steve Bender, and you'll be glad you did!!!

We went through Steve Bender Productions and found DJ Bobby Leach for our son's wedding reception. To call him a DJ is an understatement - he not only did an excellent job with the music (seamless!), he was able to make the job of getting all the wedding stuff - intros to the speeches, Mom/Son, Father/Daughter dance, cake, etc - done with ease! His music system sounds wonderful, too. EVERYONE was dancing - even my 82 year old Mother!

If you are wondering if Steve Bender Productions is the right DJ for you- your search is over. My husband and I could have not been more thrilled with Steve's services the day of our wedding. We had our wedding outside, and wanted each sets of our bridal party to walk down to a different song and Steve made this happen, no questions asked. That may not seem like a difficult request but when you think about the skills required to wire an outdoor event without any issues was amazing. From the first time we met Steve he never once pressured us or made us feel like we had to choose him. You don't realize how vital the DJ is to making your day perfect and if you choose Steve Bender, you and your guests will have the most amazing experience.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Steve Bender for our wedding about a month ago. We couldn't have been happier with the services he provided for us. Even at our very first meeting Steve was extremely professional, easy-going, not pushy, and very honest with us. Steve's credentials alone speak for themselves. He has been a local DJ for years and knows the business inside and out. Steve was extremely prompt with our calls and emails and we never had to worry if he had the order of the music correct or not. Even a month later and our guests are still commenting on how much fun they had at the wedding and how the music that was played was perfect for everyone's taste. If you are looking for a DJ who will help make your day absolutely perfect, Steve Bender is the man for the job.

We booked Steve Bender for our Wedding 12/30/12. It was a Sunday wedding that was originally supposed to be on Saturday. Steve had no problem changing the date, which was great. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls which is a +. I loved the fact that we could do all of our planning on his website. It made things so much easier, as I live & work in Columbus, the wedding was in Dayton and Steve lives in Cincinnati. Steve helped the entire reception flow. He kept the dance floor packed. I had so much fun. He played everything we wanted to hear & honored guests requests for songs. There was a specific song we ABSOLUTELY DID NOT WANT played and he did a great job avoiding any drama when it was requested. Overall great experience and great value!

Steve kept the dance floor full all night long. We loved his planning form which allowed us to input our first dance song and all the other formal occasions which required music. We met with him via phone a week before the wedding and he double checked that he had received the timeline and our event song choices. We left the other choices up to him and he did a great job selecting the right music for the crowd at the right time.

My daughter's wedding reception went perfectly and Bobby from Steve Bender Productions played a big part in the success of the evening. There is a lot going on at a wedding reception - welcomes, toasts, cake cutting, first dances, bouquet throwing, etc. - and it is very easy for the bridal party to lose track of those things. Bobby went out of his way to make sure that EVERYTHING took place the way we planned it.

Bobby reminded us when it was time to have the toasts, cut the cake, throw the bouquet, etc. Bobby did more than just take requests and play music; he was truly a master of ceremonies who made sure that nothing fell through the cracks and that my daughter's reception went as smoothly as possible.

In additon to all that Bobby was smooth and professional behind the microphone, which added to the reception's success. The Steve Bender web site allowed us to create a song request list before the event and Steve and Bobby were even able to track down a couple of obscure songs that we wanted played at the reception.

Planning and successfully pulling off a wedding reception is a huge undertaking. You will save yourself a lot of grief if you work with vendors who are not only professional, but who also go out of their way to make sure your event goes smoothly. Bobby and Steve did that for us and I strongly recommend that you use Steve Bender Productions for your reception, too.

I really liked the fact that we could choose the songs we wanted played online, it was very easy to plan our event. Everything went very smooth and very professional. Everything we wanted played or done was done and nothing from our do not play list was played which was great. Terry and I recommened them to his boss for the company Christmas party and they will be there. The price was really reasonable compared to other companies and the service was top notch so I'd have to give them five stars all around. Steve and gang if you ever read these, Great Job!

We were lucky enough to have Steve Bender himself DJ our wedding (I think he has a few guys that he sometimes sends out, whom I'm sure are also great!). He was so professional and everyone loved his emcee skills - no wonder, he used to be a DJ on the radio. He made our reception feel very classy and had several creative ideas for us. His prices were excellent, and he was more than happy to work with the musicians that we had for cocktail hour & dinner, even offering for them to use his speakers, etc. Highly, highly recommended!!!

He kept the party going right up until the end and had all of our songs even though some weren't listed on the website. He also played music for all ages getting the adults involved as well, then transitioned to the "younger" music towards the end of the night! He also did a great job coordinating with our photographers so they were prepared for introductions, and all the big events of the night! Definitely hire Steve for all of your wedding needs!!!!

He also played music for all ages getting the adults involved as well, then transitioned to the "younger" music towards the end of the night! He also did a great job coordinating with our photographers so they were prepared for introductions, and all the big events of the night! Definitely hire Steve for all of your wedding needs!!!!

I would HIGHLY recommend Steve Bender Productions for a DJ service for a wedding reception! Specifically, I would recommend Bobby as he was the DJ for our wedding. He was AMAZING and played songs that kept everyone dancing! We didn't even speak with Bobby until the week of the wedding, but he was very prepared and did a great job as the DJ and MC for the evening. We received so many compliments on how fun the dancing was at the reception! You will not be disappointed!

Steve did a great job for our wedding, we wanted something low key that did a professional job without games, etc and he provided just that. The music was great, just what we wanted and the dance floor was busy all night. He went with the flow & was easy to work with, we highly recommend him.

My DJ was Bobby Leach, one of the DJ's working for Steve Bender Productions. I used him based on a recommendation from a work friend, and I am so grateful that I did! He is extremely knowledgeable about music (during one meeting with him we started humming a song we couldn't name and he knew it right away), very laid back and very service oriented. At the wedding he checked in with me, my husband and my parents multiple times to make sure we were happy with everything and to ask if certain songs were okay to play or not. It was fantastic. The crowd was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. He knew just what to play to keep everyone moving!

Steve Bender Productions provided the DJ service at my daughter's wedding this past weekend. Steve himself was not the DJ rather, one of his associates. The DJ was terrific. He played all the music my daughter and her fiancé requested as well as requests from our guests, made announcements when requested and kept the dance floor hopping! The dance floor was full the entire evening. The only slight negative was that the office was slow responding to emails and/or phone calls. Other than that, our experience was perfect!

Steve Bender did an excellent job at our wedding reception! Everyone was up dancing the entire night ! And, he definitely created a fun environment for everyone & catered to all ages! He was able to keep all the events of our Reception running smoothly & efficiently (i.e. cake cutting, garter toss, bouquet toss, first dances). I would highly recommend him to everyone! The only trouble we had was getting a hold of him (via email, phone, voicemails) the 2 weeks before our wedding. It was somewhat stressful not knowing what was going on a week before the wedding & we had some questions about payment, but we ended up talking a few days before & everything went as planned & he did great on the night of our Reception!! Overall, we were extremely happy we chose him as our DJ! We received a lot of compliments from our reception guests & most importantly, we were extremely happy! He played songs that we requested and also chose some of his own, which we were very happy about ! We enjoyed everything that he played and we had such a fun night! Everyone at our Reception really enjoyed the music and had a blast !

Wonderful DJ - I couldn't ask for anything more. We used "Sensational Sound" for a cheaper deal but ended up getting Steve Bender himself! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night; he played all of our long list of songs I wanted played; didn't play anything I asked him not too; played a special track we had to have cut down for a special dance - which was very nice and he was very accommodating; and lastly was perfect when it was time for a surprise flash mob in which he played an important role! Communication prior to the wedding had me a little nervous, but he ended up killing it at the wedding and did exactly what I wanted from a DJ. He also set up earlier than we originally thought and didn't charge extra. Great customer service throughout and I really felt like I won the lottery with the amount I paid. Great entertainment - so much fun!!!

The music was loud enough (a problem at a wedding we recently attended), the night went smoothly, and he made sure we were happy. I would reccommend them for sure.

The DJ sent from Steve Bender Productions was fabulous. He played many of the songs that my husband and I had picked from the online webpage. Having an online site that you can make payments, changes, add/delete songs was great and they allowed us plenty of time to make our selections.

I would recommend using Steve Bender in the future but make sure you book early!!

Bobby was our DJ. He was fantastic!!!! He was punctual and prepared for anything! He met with us ahead of time to plan things out and even spoke with me Saturday morning to make small adjustments that I thought of the night before. He did a great job at mixing up the styles of music to keep everyone on the dance floor. I did not make a large do not play list and should have thought a bit more about that since the chicken dance was requested and played and that is a song I hate! Other than that he was fantastic!!

Our DJ called us 2 nights before the wedding to go over our planner and music requests. He then gave us his contact info and let us know that the night before he would be up and available for call up to midnight working on our wedding. Everything worked perfectly. There were no issue the whole night!

We met with our DJ a few weeks before the wedding. My only complaint was that they were a little "old". I don't mean to sound prejudice at all but the djs at Party Pleasers were more of what we wanted but couldnt afford.

Steve was very friendly when we met to talk about the services he offers. However, once we put our payment down (we paid in full from the beginning), we did not hear from him until the week before the wedding. I was starting to get worried and tried contacting him, but he was not responsive to e-mail nor to voicemails. For future brides, I think that, in order to get Steve or your assigned DJ to respond to you, you need to fill out all the online planning forms first and submit them before they will contact you, because my assigned DJ contacted me the day after I submitted all the forms. In the end, the reception turned out great, and our DJ, Joe Griffin, did a wonderful job keeping the crowd going on the dance floor and facilitating the flow of the reception.

He did a great job. A little disapointed because I spent hours picking out the music and felt like it was a waste of my time because he played about half of my song picks. He did play all of my must plays though. We had some trouble getting ahold of him to schedule our final meeting, but once we did the final meeting went very well and so did the reception. He is more reasonable than quite a few in the Cinci area.

In the end, my DJ was great, and everyone had a good time. However, I had a horrible time trying to get a hold of Steve Bender. We spoke on the phone, then were supposed to get together to sign a contract, but never did. I had to mail a check to reserve my date, and he was supposed to send the contract, but didn't. I filled out my online planning form, which at one time, was taken down. I finally had to get my DOC to intervene and formulate a possible back-up plan. 2 days before the wedding, I finally heard from someone, not Steve, but the DJ who would be at the reception (which Steve had said would be him and wasn't). Overall, the reception went great, but I would recommend using someone else.

Most of our guests missed the bouquet toss and garter toss cause he didn't make an announcement. And the general dance music he played was horrible. And the club lighting effect I was supposed to have was a joke. Biggest waste of money ever. I would have been better off with a mixed cd.

At the end of the day, our dance floor stayed full and people had a great time out there. But it was one of those things, that the guests didn't know the difference I did! My husband and I spent hours making our playlists, the musts, the maybes, and the do nots. He might (and I am being generous) have played half of our musts and he actually played a do not! One of the songs he played, kept skipping and he never changed it. To top it off, he never made announcements like we were cutting the cake, so half of the people didn't know. We did not have Steve, we had one of his workers and I would not recommend this company. Although we still all danced and had a great time, the dj left a sour taste in my mouth.

Lets begin by saying that all the pre-work up until the wedding was just great. I loved using his website to track all our favorite songs and the flow of the wedding. We even had 2 phone calls to discuss everything before the big day. Then the big day came and the reception started out great with the introductions and then our DJ completely fell apart in front of our eyes. His music was stopping during important dances and he kept restarting them to everyone's confusion. He then wanted to start the bestman/maid of honor speaches before we even sat down, in which we had to stop him ourselves. He must of said several times that his system crashed and was very short and snappy with everyone. I had to remind him a half hour before the reception ended that he didn't even play half of our required songs. It looked like he was looking for them on YouTube??

Needless to say, it turned into a mess. I see on his website he has a 24 hour backup DJ guarantee, don't believe a second of that! Also we called Steve personally and talked to him a bit about what happened but he said he was too busy to talk and would call us back. That never happened.

I really hate to give bad reviews about anything, but in this case, the lack of communication from Steve shows he really doesn't care.

My wife and I were so incredibly disappointed with Steve Bender Productions. First and foremost he NEVER EVER gets back to you. He ignored us profusely the entire planning time before our wedding. He messed up our lighting package because he never responded to any of our e-mails and what was provided for lighting the bulb burned out. We were told we would receive a refund for the package and it took numerous phones calls and emails to actually get a hold of him and then we waited almost another month to receive our refund. Stay away from Steve Bender Productions, he screwed up our wedding and he'll probably do the same to you.

He messed up our lighting package because he never responded to any of our e-mails and what was provided for lighting the bulb burned out. We were told we would receive a refund for the package and it took numerous phones calls and emails to actually get a hold of him and then we waited almost another month to receive our refund.
