I used Aiko Aiko Sound for all of the music for my Telluride, CO wedding. In addition to being a great value (especially compared to other bids I received), Dale was incredibly responsive for the planning portion and Ben was a stellar DJ. I had one conference call with Ben prior to my wedding. He was the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, drinks/dancing for the night, which was in three different locations (at the same resort). He did a great job of moving between spaces seemlessly. On our call prior to the wedding, I gave some rough guidelines on what I wanted to hear/not hear for each segment of the night. Ben did a great job interpreting and had one of the best cross sections of music for the 'drinks/dancing' portion of the night that I've ever heard at a wedding. I wanted to make sure that the music was upbeat but my parents/aunts/uncles/guests of all ages would still want to dance. He hit the nail on the head! The only advice I'd give another bride is to skip the uplighting...it's just colored, strobe-like lighting that I actually did not care for. Definitely not worth the expensive, but such a small piece of the total package.

Dean from Aiko Aiko sound was the DJ at our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner reception, and dance lounge. He knew just what to play to get the crowd on the dance floor and keep them there. He also stayed an hour and a half later than planned because everyone was having such a good time. I couldn't have asked for a better, more friendly DJ!

We were planning a long-distance wedding so it was tough trying to decide on vendors. All we had to go on were from online reviews and websites.

Our initial phone call with the owner went really well and he sounded reassuring and seemed to understand our needs. We sent him a deposit via PayPal within the week, which included a travel charge. However, it was really difficult getting ahold of him for the next several months. It took numerous tries of pestering via e-mail and phone to get him to send us a signed contract back, give us ideas, status, etc. We were finally able to meet him a couple weeks before the event, even though he wasn't certain who on his staff would be our DJ, but thankfully he came exuded as much reassurance as in our initial conversation.

On the wedding day, Aiko Aiko Sound definitely delivered. We found out only a couple days beforehand that our DJ would be John, and I was relieved that he was very good at returning my phone calls and following up with me to discuss the event. When I finally met him at the reception, I knew we were in EXCELLENT hands. He was very professional and played the songs we had on our list plus several others that were in the same vein. He timed everything well and knew how to read the crowd. Whenever he had a question, he sought me out in the most unintrusive manner (we didn't have a wedding coordinator).

The only minor nitpick of the day was that the microphone kept cutting in and out, and it was most noticeable during the toasts. However, John was the consummate announcer and had the type of voice you'd want for a fun wedding reception - he got my PARENTS dancing, and they NEVER dance!

No issues with the final payment, which was due within 30 days after the event (again, Paypal).

Aiko Aiko Sound was great to work with. Dale responded to my emails very quickly and answered my many questions. Ben was the DJ at our wedding and he got everyone dancing and enjoying themselves. He even got myself and my groom dancing, and WE DON'T DANCE! Ben took requests from guests and really kept the party going. One of our best decisions was our DJ selection.

Our DJ was Michael Jordan - he did a great job, and it was outstanding value for the money.
