Because your day is special and unique, you'll want a DJ service that understands that, and listens to you to give you a reception that is fun, memorable and stress-free.

Accent Events owner, Alan Robb - the Scottish DJ (!) - strives to be not only the best DJ company for you on the night, but also a partner with you throughout the process. You may be getting married for the first, or maybe second, time, but Alan has been an important part of over 900 weddings going back to 1991. That experience, coupled with a passion for helping people to enjoy themselves, ensures that you need only show up and have fun on your wedding day, safe in the knowledge that all the details have been covered.

The initial free consultation over coffee usually lasts about an hour or so and really reveals if there's that connection between your DJ and you that is so vital to ensure your night is everything you dreamed it would be. There's no greater thrill than being told that your guests are STILL raving about your wedding months, and even years, later. That doesn't happen by accident, and it has a value that guarantees that Accent Events will never be the cheapest DJs in town, but will be memorable for all the right reasons!

Don't worry, though - Alan takes your wedding seriously, but he's certainly laid back enough not to take HIMSELF too seriously! Read less

We hired Alan because the reviews all agreed he would ensure the flow of the night and make sure we had a lively party. I learned that doesn't even begin to cover what he does. He handled our ceremony music, provided music for cocktails, and made sure we never had to worry about what came next. His mantra for us was just 'to be'...'if I haven't come to get you, it isn't time'. It was a huge relief. And, true to the reviews, the party was non-stop!! I'm only disappointed that we can give him no more than '5' on this rating scale. Thank you Alan, we hope to share a beer again soon.

During our first meeting with Alan we knew he was the right fit for us. Not only did Alan spend over an hour getting to know us at our first meeting, and he also meet with us at the venue a month prior to ensure everything was set up the way we wanted it, and he also came to our rehearsal to make sure the flow of the ceremony was correct! Our guests were extremely impressed that Alan walked around during dinner and asked them what they would like to hear. Many people commented that they had never seen that before, and to be honest neither had we! Alan and Danny made sure to keep the dance floor full the entire night and they did right to the very last song! Our wedding would not have been half as fun without them and we highly recommend Accent Events for lighting and dj services!

After reading about Alan's philosophy on his website and blog, I already knew he would be the perfect DJ. Once we met in Milwaukee, he sealed the deal! Alan is an extremely fun and pleasant person to work with. He alleviated so much stress by helping take care of little day-of tasks, and to top it off, he had everyone out on the dance floor! He tailored the music perfectly to our tastes while still throwing in songs that everyone could dance to. He also did an amazing job with the lighting and grabbing everyone's attention for specific events (speeches, cake cutting, etc). I would definitely recommend him for any special occasion. Alan is a talented professional, and he made our wedding very memorable!

We are so happy that Alan from Accent Events was our DJ for our wedding on August 30, 2013! He heard our preferences and wove them in at appropriate times to set a wonderful atmosphere for the entire reception. He was ready to provide outdoor music for our cocktail hour (that ended up getting moved inside due to the weather) and rolled with the punches. He asked for requests from our guests, and keeping our preferences in mind, created an amazing dance mix that kept the dance floor full the entire night! Everyone had a great time!

Alan also provided the uplighting for our tent. It looked beautiful.

Thank you, Alan! We cannot recommend you enough!

I would highly recommend Alan for their DJ. I had so many people comment on how awesome a wedding it was and that it was "quite the party". Alan is really good at reading the crowd and not once during the entire night did the dance floor clear. It was always packed and it made the night really fun. My only complaint is that he did play one song on our "do not play list" but we did have a lot of songs on that list and frankly it really wasn't a big deal to me at all. Also there was a bit of a miscommunication regarding our processional song. But honestly despite those 2 very small hiccups, I would definitely hire him again and recommend him to others. If you want a really good party and a DJ that doesn't talk all night, hire Alan! But be smart and book early, he does book up fast for the summer months.

We can not recommend Alan more highly. He was professional at all times, responded to what our wishes were in regards to music, sequence of events, and with the guests. Alan's selection of music and the choices he made and the way he included the guests made for a wonderful night of dancing. Many people commented on how great our dj was! We were also impressed at how well Alan balanced his involvement, he was not overbearing or had a lack of presence. He is worth every penny!

Alan was an awesome DJ for our wedding! He got to know us so he could play music that reflected who we are. The music was perfect and everyone had a blast! The only reason we give him a 4/5 for responsiveness is because we had a little trouble getting in contact with him in a timely fashion. He always did eventually get back to us, but not as quickly as one would expect. However, we still highly recommend him!

Alan did a great job with our wedding!!! We threw lots of curve balls at him at the last minute and he did great. During the wedding I didn't realize all the little things he did to make everything flow but watching the video I noticed how he stepped in at the right time to keep the speeches flowing and have awesome lights going for our custom grand march. My husband and I aren't the biggest dancers but he kept the floor going and was able to read the crowd and knew when it was time to wrap it up.

Thank you so much. It's always very pleasing when my couples work with me to make their day special, and your curveballs weren't really that bad! Let's face it, planning a wedding can be tricky and you gave me what I needed to make it happen. ;)
