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.

In the rare event that our music selections are not motivating your guests to dance, we have a few DJ entertainer "tricks" to motivate the crowd to the dancefloor which result in good times had by all.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?

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!

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.

We had a dj lined up and just 2 weeks before the wedding thry cancelled. I called and these guys had a quote to me within 24 hours. The price was great, less than most others and included a military discount! The dj was very personable and knew just what types of music to play. Although i met him just minutes before the reception, it was like we had talked many times before. Very memorable!

Jason was great to work with and provided great DJ services for our ceremony and reception! We used his sound system to mic our ceremony and then rocked out on the dance floor all night with his great wedding mix during the reception.

He has a great website where you can add music that you want and don't want played at the wedding. It was really easy to use and helped us figure out our wedding playlist. He was also very accommodating because there were several songs that I wanted that he didn't have in his database and he got them all before the wedding (and I only gave him a couple days!!!)

There was not a single dull moment on the dance floor the entire night. They had to kick us out of the venue because we all just wanted Jason to keep playing music. We had a great time and thought Jason and Absolute Best DJ would be great for any wedding or other occasion!!

Thanks Jason!! We had such a great time :)

Jason was great to work with. I love the interactive site he uses and the top hits list. It makes it so much easier to choose great songs from over the decades. He got the entire wedding party out on the dance floor.
We got married on the beach and he was also able to setup out there for us which made the day even better. I highly recommend him (and have already to a few friend)

Jason was great to work with, we gave him our timeline along with our music choices and everything went great. The ceremony was also done by Jason and was great. Music was loud enough for everyone to hear, but not over powering, and everything flowed smoothly. During the reception, with our timeline he helped to keep us on schedule so that nothing was left out that we wanted to do. He was flexible with us also, if we were running a little behind he would check to see if we needed a little while longer. Jason also did the lighting in the reception area with uplighting, cake, and dance floor. With the monogram, we were able to design it ourselves, and Jason tweeked it just a little to make sure that everything was visible when projected. The dance floor stayed full throughout the night all the way till the end. We had a great time, and our guest did also. I have and will continue to suggest Absolute Best DJ to others. Excellent value for everything together, and very professional.

Absolute Best DJ stands up to their name! Jason did an awesome job at our wedding reception. He has state of the art equipment, along with special lighting, dance floor lighting and an excellent website where you can add to your requested playlist. He also took requests and knew when to change a song if the party was dying down or wasn't feeling the song that was playing. During the special dances at the beginning of the reception he used eye contact with me to know when to fade out the song, which was great. He also worked hand in hand with my wedding planner and also made sure I was happy at all times with the volume, mic volume, etc.

We wanted to take a second and thank Jason at Absolute Best so much for his special part of our wedding! We were both so happy with the wedding and you were a HUGE part of that! We have had a TON of people compliment the music and the flow of the evening. We can't thank you enough, you played our requests, you filled in the gaps with great music and you were so organized! Thank you for being so easy to work with. I never had any hesitation to call or email with a question. What a comfort as a bride who has obviously never done this before. We will recommend you to everyone we know!

There wasn't a single glitch throughout the entire evening and no awkward pauses between songs or special moments. He judged our guests perfectly by playing different types of music at just the right time. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional but fun dj for their event!

After attending several bridal/wedding shows I had sticker shock for particular wedding vendors...DJ's were a big one. After meeting Jason with Absolute Best DJ I felt so much better. His prices are unbeatable. They are very professional and easy to talk to. Very quick to respond to any emails, website messages and phone calls. His website is awesome and made planning details of the music easy!! I asked to meet with him a week or two before the wedding and he had no problem accommodating me! I felt completely confident in his work which put me at ease as the big day approached! The rehearsal/wedding went perfectly and our day was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better vendor!!

Jason and Ben were amazing. We had our original DJ (family friend) get into a car accident exactly a month before the wedding. I contacted Absolute-Best (along with dozens of other DJ services) and Jason was the first to respond (being one of my last emails sent, I was quite impressed). Me and Jason spoke for about a week and a half and hammered out 70% of the details. Jason was quick and willing to help us get everything setup. Ben was our actual DJ. Ben showed up on time and setup very quickly. Because of short timing of getting things done, Ben and I ran through some things fairly quickly before the wedding started. Ben played all the songs we requested and kept the mood of the wedding/reception great. We had a few mic troubles during our vows, but that wasn't that big of a deal to us, as long as we could hear each other we were satisfied. We had asked Ben if he would stay 30min to an hour later than planned depending on how things went, he agreed to stay if we needed. We ended up not needing the extra hour as things died down pretty quickly. But, Ben was happy if he was needed and was in no way offended when we told him that we wouldn't need the extra hour. We were very happy with how things turned out. Though we spend more than we had planned (not too much, just more than we had budgeted because we were using a family friend at a discount) we are very satisfied on how things went. Thank you Ben and Jason, you two helped make our wedding as amazing as it was!!

Absolute Best DJ is the way to go! We received free uplighting with the basic package due to a promotion over the holidays but in general the price was comparable to other quotes. DJ Ben was extremely helpful with organizing our thoughts and flexible with the many questions we asked. I heard all the songs requested, none of the ones on the do-not-play list, and really appreciated his ability to corral the crowd when it was cake cutting time. He even played longer at the request of a guest! Many thanks to making our day so special!

Jason at Absolute Best DJ did a good job with our wedding. He was easy to work with, and his lighting that came with our basic package was really nice. I liked that we had wireless mics for our toasts. I tried using the online song request tool, and I am not sure it fully worked, or maybe I was just out of the room for some of the requested songs. I didn't hear all of them (and I only requested a handful). I think it took a little bit for him to figure out the types of music my guests would dance to, as it was a little slow at first on the dance floor. But, it picked up! Jason did a nice job.

I was late to book the DJ service for my vendors, and the Absolute DJ Service was not my first choice, but it was who my first choice recommended to me. I turned out to be very pleased with the service. I especially liked how much information I could communicate with the dj by filling out forms and requests online. More specifically, I could fill out a list of up to 90 song request, some of which could be marked as a "must play song". Also, it had categories to choose from, such as "Top Wedding Songs" and Top songs from a certain decade. This made it easy for me to make sure that all generations would be kicking it on the dance floor. There was an area online to fill out a timeline, but me being very anal, had already made a very detailed timeline of my own. The dj was fine with me sending it to him, so very flexible. He was very flexible and seemed to read the crowd and played appropriate music throughout the reception. He even stayed an hour and a half late because we wanted to keep the party going!

Absolute Best DJ Service responded with the following comments:

Thank you for your review! I felt the cons portion did need a response though.

- Your husband did request at the wedding that I move to more modern music early on once the dance floor was opened. As I discuss with all of our clients we progress our music from older to newer as the night goes. This is because earlier on in the evening there are more older guests still around and we try to appeal to the guests as a whole. Its fair to mention that I was running from a sizable playlist requested by the bride and groom of 68 songs. The issue was not that guests were unhappy but the couple and wedding party were ready for the more modern selections very early on. Unfortunately this review does not mention the dance floor was full the entire night and the guests had a blast.

- It is correct that a lot of your requested songs were not played. The reason is that its hard to fit over 5 hours or music, 68 song to be exact, into a 2 hour period. A DJ is hired to be selective, read the crowd and play music accordingly. Without this experience and knowledge one might as well use an iPod. With such an extensive list I first removed selections that do not do well in a wedding setting. Next I trimmed those selections down to the best from eras old to new and to fit within the timeline. Not everything requested is dance floor friendly. Specific selections that are not great for the dance floor are played at other times during the reception. "Mamma's Song" was in fact played after the cake cutting a song or two before the dance floor was officially opened. The dancing portion of the wedding was run mostly from your requests with guests requests added in when possible.

Altogether, our DJ did a pretty good job. For what we paid, we got a big hunk of time, and he kept playing music up until the time our contract specified, even though almost everyone was gone by then. I didn\'t hear some of the songs I requested beforehand, but to be fair, I told him I wouldn\'t really mind or notice if he didn\'t play everything we asked for, so oh, well! At times the music was quite loud for our noon reception, but the DJ was friendly and entertaining and we were pleased overall.

He was very accommodating with song requests and downloading 2 in particular that we wanted but that he didn't have. The only issue (minor one) that I had was that he took a little bit of time to respond to emails.

I'm sorry you felt the night was disorganized. Your DJ runs off of the itinerary provided by yourself which also includes event and music specifics. Often our DJs do "play it by ear" as order of events at the appropriate pace is often more important than sticking to a timeline. A meeting is always possible and encouraged for clients that wish to arrange one with us. A great number of our clients come from out of state so very often we are unable to meet beforehand which is why it is important for out of town clients such as yourself to provide their info as accurately as possible to ensure a flawless event.

2.0/5.0
If I had Jason, I am sure my reviews would be 5.0. Unfortunately Jason had family matters he had to tend to, so I found out the Wednesday (three days) before my Saturday wedding that he was unable to do it. He had a great replacement for me though so I was not stressed and I trusted him. I had no time to meet with this new guy do to all my last minute details. DJ Ben was a let down. I could type a list of what went wrong but basically it comes down to everything not being communicated to Ben from Jason when it came to my timeline and requests that were asked through email. Also, Ben spent a lot of time on his phone and didn't have a good flow of slow and fast songs. I had to ask for slow and for requests because he wasn't playing them like he told my guests he would. I understand that life happens and I was sorry to hear Jason had family issues but I was given a terrible replacement. I specifically told him in the beginning that I wanted to use his business as long as I got him and not an assistant. He did try to make it better by giving me a free monogram but it just didn't make up for the poor job Ben did. I can't say whether I would recommend him because I didn't get to use him. At the end of the day, I married my husband and that's what really matters.

I do apologize for the sudden need of a replacement DJ. Luckily I have a very skilled team to back each other up in situations like this. The timeline for this wedding was executed exactly how it was planned with the info provided. Ben, your DJ, followed the info just as I myself would have. Our DJs do not talk on their phones during wedding but we do keep in close contact through txt messaging to see how things are going and to pass ideas back and forth. As a DJ it is our job to play songs at the appropriate time to keep the energy up on the dance floor. Not all requests will be played immediately nor would there typically be regular slow song intervals. This review comes at a surprise following your direct email stating you and your guest had a great time. I do recognize that this review does stem from your disappointment of the unexpected DJ change which I greatly apologize for.
