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
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
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!
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
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!
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No we do not

$200 For DJ/MC Services and $200 for PHOTO/VIDEO Booth Services

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 incredible. He did a great job of reading the flow of the room, he kept the dance floor full and was very easy to get a hold of when needed. Do yourself a favor and pay the extra money to make sure you get Steve!

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!!
