We had Les as our DJ for our wedding in Summerland, everything was perfect, he was very responsive and managed to find even the most obscure latin songs we had requested. He did a fantastic job at mixing all the types of music we had requested and even did a little dance to Michael Jackson. Everyone raved about how incredible our DJ was as a professional and how nice he was as a person, we couldn't have chosen anyone better. Thank you so much Les and Airwaves for making our night a success!!! - R&A 16.08.2014

Darcy and I are so grateful for your services at our Kelowna beach wedding ceremony in July.
We live in Calgary and did the majority of our planning over the phone and via email.
Even though we ran into a few glitches with our wedding day - circumstances beyond our control - Airwaves was one thing that was amazing! Anira's customer service was top notch.
DJ Les was a gem! And wow, what a smile! Also, our choice for the processional was a mantra rather than a traditional wedding march, and Airwaves assured us it would not be a problem even if they didn't have it in their collection at that time.
We're sharing a link to a wedding video that was put together by my daughter's best friend (very talented 15 year old), so you can see how DJ Les enhanced our beautiful ceremony.
Forever grateful,
Traci and Darcy

We hired John, our DJ, for our reception as well as Lance, our guitarist, for our wedding ceremony music & cocktail hour prior to the reception. Even though we didn't get to fully experience Lance because of photos, our guests raved about his talents and ability to bring people together to sing and dance during the cocktail hour! John was very involved during the reception and our guests loved him! So glad we chose Airwaves as the day went of without a hitch and everyone was impressed! Thanks guys! Jess & Scott

I heard about Airwaves Music through the Wedding Cafe in Kelowna and I am extremely happy that we ended up hiring them. We originally spoke with a representative of theirs on the phone who was great and then were introduced to our music planner, Anira. Anira was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process and always got back to us quickly. Our DJ was fantastic and played exactly the songs we had listed on our online music request form. The entire process was organized and easy to follow and the music was exactly what we wanted!

Our friend recommended Airwaves and I'm so glad she did. Anira was great to work with- she responded quickly to emails, answered all of our questions, and was friendly and professional. We had DJ Liam, who was awesome. We met up before the wedding to discuss how we wanted the night to go. He was friendly, on time, professional and was able to read the crowd. He was great to work with. We would definitely recommend using Airwaves to future brides and grooms.

I recently got married about an hour outside of Kelowna and hired Airwaves to provide the music for our ceremony and reception. Airwaves provided DJ John Bird - who was just awesome. We had hired them probably 6 months before our wedding, but being from out of town we were not able to meet John prior to hiring them. Anira (from Airwaves) was able to coordinate us with John to take time out of his weekend and meet up with us over the Easter weekend when we were able to come into town and discuss our wedding. After this meeting we provided him with a copy of how the ceremony was to be and on the day of he had all the songs for our ceremony perfectly lined up and all played perfect according to our instructions. During the reception/dance he played the styles of music we had asked for, entertained requests, and kept the dance floor full the whole night. Nothing I would of changed - nothing but great reviews for him and Airwaves and would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends.

Im happy to say, our DJ was awesome! He made announcements, kept everyone dancing and played all of my songs. I highly recommend this company.

Airwaves Music did an excellent job DJing our wedding. The DJ was friendly, played lots of requests and seemed like he really enjoyed himself too. We didn't want any crazy games or too many announcements or anything and wanted a DJ who would just be good at keeping people engaged and dancing. They did a really good job overall from start to finish.

Thanks guys!

Airwaves was a very professional company and kept in touch with us regularly leading up to our wedding. All of our song requests were played right when we wanted them. The speakers and lights looked great and the DJ equipment was low-key and in the background, just like we wanted. You can barely notice it in the photos. We also got the DJ to do some light MCing. We kind of put him on the spot and he did just great!

We ended up hiring Rodrigo as a guitar player for our ceremony- he was very professional and flexible and everyone loved him:) he played beautifully. We then had John Bird as our DJ and he was absolutely outstanding. He kept the party going, played all the right songs at the right time and truly seemed to enjoy his job! I would definitely recommend both to anyone planning their wedding. We can't thank you enough airwaves for all your help!

Bob did a great job helping me find the musicians for our wedding day. I wanted live music at the reception, and something a little quirky during the ceremony. Bob found us a French horn quartet that was willing to play the Indiana Jones theme song for our walk back up the aisle, and they were fantastic... not to mention ideal as the horns carried much better at an open-plan outdoor venue than strings!

Bob also helped us find the right jazz group for our reception, getting us samples of their work and even going so far as to go watch a few people I had found online and giving his feedback on whether they were right for our wedding vibe. He was thorough in following up and checking details before the day, and we couldn't have been happier with the musicians he lined up. As non-locals we relied on his connections and advice, and he didn't disappoint.

Cheers,

Lauren Guilfoyle

A great company that provided an excellent DJ for our wedding!! Bob, the owner of Airwaves was excellent to deal with and very professional. He matched us with a DJ, Les, that kept the dance floor packed all night long - guests are still raving about the party. They had a great online system to upload timelines, songs, etc. Even though it can be a bit confusing, everyone at Airwaves is very helpful and kind. I would definitely recommend future brides to hire this company!

Bruce Spencer was an absolute delight at our ceremony. His
music created the perfect ambiance and I was completely breathtaken not just by
his talents but by his beautiful spirit. Not only did Bruce play
fantastic renditions of the songs we requested, he also did his own research in
order to play the ceremonial Ukrainian song I was seeking and understand its important meaning in our celebration, which of course, brought us to tears! I feel so privileged for having had Bruce be a part of our ceremony.

Bob Graham was an absolute pleasure to work with - he made finding and booking such a fabulous musician a piece of cake and, at a time when there is so much to do and things are getting stressful, Bob took care of everything and did it in a timely, professional, personal, and friendly manner. I highly recommend Airwaves and I highly recommend Bruce if you need a magical sound and a wonderfully sensitive and talented musician for your event.

We are sorry to hear from the couple about the poor review for the JR DJ in training performing at their wedding. We wanted to respond directly to this complaint.

The DJ hired for their wedding was one of the best on our team.

Unfortunately, the night of the wedding, his wife went into early labour and was rushed off to the hospital. The JR DJ was there, playing music and we had auditioned him multiple times. He wasn't up to their standards but a refund was issued.

Although this wasn't an ideal situation by any means, this was one situation where having a backup JR DJ there, on standby saved the day. It was an emergency.

We are sorry the couple went through this, but feel strongly that any new-parent would have done the same if there was a backup there to take their place. We had tested this JR DJ extensively however he did not deliver that night up to their standards, so we did deliver a refund. This was truly a one-in-a-million kind of incident.

Since then, we've tightened up our training for JR DJs, and given them song lists and procedures for these types of incidents.

After reading the customers continual dissatisfaction after the fact, we will issue a complete and full refund.

From the very beginning, Airwaves provided quick responses, professionalism and were budget conscious/friendly. I originally wasn't going to hire a DJ as our wedding budget was extremely tight, but I am SO glad I did, and they worked with me to make sure it was something I could afford. I absolutely recommend Airwaves! DJ Quinn did an outstanding job at our reception, was extremely flexible with our requests and after getting to know my dad a bit, took a sweet photo of my parents dancing to Remember When - my dad was so happy!! I could go on and on, but let me just say that you will NOT be disappointed with this business, they are amazing and worth every penny!! Thanks Airwaves!

We are very happy to have had Dj Quinn for our wedding! After cancelling with our first pick for our day ( different company ) we had our standards set pretty high. Airwaves was able to ease our concerns we previously had and give us 100% confidence in their team. After my first conversation with our event coordinator, we felt assured that we would be getting the best! Dj Quinn took our online information and put everything into play ... Literally ! He was punctual and worked very well with our wedding planner. He was very nicely dressed and genuinely happy to be apart of our special day! Through out the planning process, I was constantly told, that a dj can make or brake the whole vibe of the ceremony and or reception. And this was right! He made it! We have had lots of positive feedback already from our guests saying he played all the favourites and also a great mix if today's music ! We also had Quinn do partial mc duties ... He read from our scrip and kept things moving along promptly. We feel lucky to have had someone like him as our dj... He even joined us on the dance floor for a song !! We had a blast !
Thanks Quinn

I'll start by saying the music provided by DJ John Bird was amazing! He really did a great job getting everyone on the dance floor. Exactly what we were wanting!
I can't give this company a 5 out of 5 rating however. We originally hired Airwaves with the promise of having a certain DJ for our wedding. A few months before the wedding, we were informed that he was no longer available and they would supply a different DJ. I don't think the way it was dealt with was very professional, and I was extremely disappointed. Yes, it did all work out in the end, but it was the biggest cause of stress that I had in my planning process.

We went through Airwaves to find a musician for our wedding ceremony. Lance Carr, the guitarist was a great musician and very responsive to our requests. However, getting to that point was a bit of a headache.

We had originally secured a musician through them in October of 2013 (our wedding was in May 2014). In January or so they sent me an email saying that musician was no longer with them. The girl who was taking care of our account had also changed. It took a lot of emails back and forth, mostly me emailing them to check on what was going on to find a replacement. It may have been because there were some turnovers in the company but we did not secure a musician until about a month before the ceremony. A day before the wedding Lance had given me a call to introduce himself and check in. To our frustration, some notes I had given to Airwaves back in September about bringing two wireless microphones were not passed on to him. Lance was kind enough to scramble and go rent a battery operated microphone on his own. I will note that Anira, the girl who was now taking care of our account was lovely and friendly but she wasn't able to respond readily to our questions because she was waiting to hear from the musicians about their availabilities. Also, her superior called me to apologize for the delay in finding a musician which I appreciated.

In the end, I was happy with the guitarist that Airwaves provided but for a company whose mission is to make it easy for clients to find quality musicians, I feel they left me hanging and caused more stress than I would have felt if I went to find a musician on my own.

Airwaves Music responded with the following comments:

This is a legitimate complaint, and we did experience an issue finding a guitarist. The reason was, Airwaves made the extremely difficult decision to terminate our contract with the original guitarist who had been booked, just weeks before the wedding.

We did this because we felt the original guitarist had chosen to act in an unprofessional manner and we did not trust that we could rely on him for the wedding. Despite working with him for years, he seemed to completely lose interested in performing at weddings all of the sudden-just weeks before this wedding.

So, we scrambled, on behalf of the client to find a replacement guitarist on short notice. We were able to secure Lance Carr, a previous world champion guitarist at no extra charge to the client and he learned all of the clients requests within days of the wedding.

This was certainly not our ideal situation but the reason Airwaves exists is to provide reliable, professional entertainment for our clients. If we feel the client will be anything but exceptional, we will do everything in our power to find a better alternative.

In this situation, we had to do that and it appears the client felt this created extra stress for her. After years in this business, I can guarantee that her original guitarist wouldn't have been reliable or pleasant so I stand behind our difficult decision to find a new guitarist on short notice.

We are in the business of managing people. I can not always guarantee we will not have to switch performers, but I can guarantee on the day of your wedding you will have an excellent, skilled, professional and pleasant performer whom is there because they want to be, who can add magic to your special day.

I stand behind our decision. We have over 100 musicians in the Okanagan and only had 2 guitarists that day. We chose to lose money on the event and offer the world champion guitarist at the same price as the original guitarist to make it happen.

Airwaves Music responded with the following comments:

It is very hard for us to look into this review since the client did not mention anything to us via email and did not leave their name, wedding date or DJ on this review.

However, we work very hard at Airwaves to ensure we play music that you and your guests are going to love! To guarantee great music, we put the control in your hands by providing you with an online music checklist where you can request special songs, genres, etc. You can also request NOT to hear genres and songs you do not like.

As well, our system allows your guests to make requests ahead of time. All of our DJs have experience at weddings so this is a surprising comment. We recommend thinking about music thoroughly before your music and discussing themes, styles and the general vibe of the music you'd like with your Airwaves Wedding Music Planner in the months prior to your wedding.

Another tip is to think about what types of music your guests are interested in. Trying to profile your guests in advance (IE half love country and half love dance music) is a great way to ensure the music sounds great.

We are very sorry to read this complaint and it is unfortunate, however with proper planning from the client and communication to the DJ and your wedding planner, this complaint is always avoidable.

After all, music is what we do best! All you have to do is tell us what you love to hear and we are happy to play it.

The company asked us a few weeks before our wedding if we would mind having a DJ in training shadow the DJ at our wedding. We of course said that was fine. ON the night of our wedding, the DJ we hired left after setting up, leaving the DJ in training in charge. He screwed up the slideshow our friend had spent hours putting together to the point that it was not viewable. (We sent the slideshow to them 2 weeks prior to the wedding to ensure there would be no problems). The DJ did not play the type of music we requested and was completely incapable of reading the crowd. He also did not do any transitions between the songs. It was as if he was just playing music off an ipod.

Initially we were told that we would receive a full refund because of all the problems and the fact that we got a DJ in training when we paid for a pro DJ. They then backtracked and would only give us half our money back, saying that they couldn't refund the whole amount because someone was there playing music.

This was the only vendor for our wedding that I was disappointed in. We had been looking forward to a good party and friends of ours who are in the DJ business told us it was way below industry standard. The DJ was awful and the response following our complaint was also lacking. Would not recommend this company to anyone.

Airwaves Music responded with the following comments:

We can't apologize enough. This couple has been issued a full refund. The DJ we had at the event's wife was pregnant and had to be rushed to the hospital. The backup DJ in training had to fill in due to the emergency and he wasn't up to their standard.

This was truly a one in a million occurrence and we have since taken steps to ensure there are no upcoming pregnancies for DJs with booked gigs on the way.

We have also have made sure that our backup DJs, who attend weddings as shadow DJs during part of our 15 step audition process have all the necessary music as well so that if a worst case scenario does occur, we are well equipped to deal with it.

I am very sorry that this happened. We have since added additional levels of support and planning to prevent this situation from happening in the future.
