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?

Do you have any extra space requirements?
Our set up takes only about as much room as a 6 ft. table. Speakers can be spread out from our DJ station as needed to maximize coverage.

Jason and DJ Ben of Absolute Best DJ Service was a pleasure to work with! They were prompt in responding to my emails. And when I just couldn't make any more decisions, DJ Ben took the rest of the feel of the night and ran with it to fill to gaps and make it perfect! Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had been too and I know that it was because of the talent that was behind keeping the crowd going. Definitely ask for DJ Ben to work your event!

Such a huge thank you to Jason at Absolute Best DJ for making the music perfect at our Ceremony and Reception! Jason is very helpful and easy to work with. He kept people dancing until the very end of the night and I have to say the way he put our ceremony music together as we requested was beautiful!

I highly recommend Absolute Best DJ. Planning I wedding in Wilmington, NC from Washington, DC had its challenges and we talked with many DJs. Absolute Best DJ was the best value we found and we cannot imagine the reception without Jason!

Thank you!

Ben from Absolute Best was the DJ for my wedding. He was absolutely perfect for my event. We met two days before the wedding and simply talked for about 45 minutes about music and our interests. He was so easy to talk to and seemed to get a great feel for what I enjoyed music wise. Music was very important to me as I wanted to dance with my groom and friends all night. He did such a great job of reading the crowd and keeping the party going. I can't say enough about him he was so great to us!!!!

Thank you to Jason and Absolute Best DJ! We recently had our wedding at Pine Lakes Country Club in Myrtle Beach and had Jason DJ our wedding. Overall from the months leading up to the wedding to the Day itself He was nothing but very professional and top notch. Jason took all our songs requests to heart and even built off that to play some great music and keep the guests engaged till the end of the night. For the value, professionalism, and overall experience he is your go to guy for weddings and events. If we have another event in the South, he will be the first person that we call. Additionally he brought all his own equipment, and photo booth (with props) and was so much fun. Thank you again Jason for being such an integral part of our big day and knocking it out of the park!

Jason was great to work with. Very easy to set up a couple meetings before the wedding, and in those meetings we went over everything he needed to know. At the actual wedding reception, he introduced everyone, introduced the various dances, cake cutting, plus a couple Polish traditions as well. He was professional, he had good equipment that sounded great, and played very good music for our reception. We couldn't have asked for anything more/different.
