Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I am an Elegant & Upscale DJ with vast Wedding Experience which allows me to offer a unique, and flexible approach for couples to custom design their wedding day event in a truly Professional manner.
What is your usual attire?
A Formal Tuxedo is my default attire unless otherwise instructed by the customer.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I'll make all possible attempts to secure pre-requested music. Occasionally, when time is of the essence, some music is provided by the customer.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I am the Owner/Operator. I DO Not Use SUB CONTRACTORS or SUBSTITUTES.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
4 hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely.....And Highly Recommended. I Offer Unlimited Consultations and I'll help you select music choices that will let you custom design your wedding soundtrack.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
In my career I've had the pleasure of performing at many different ethnic weddings with a very highly regarded success rate.I am a very well versed Latin/Bilingual DJ with an extensive knowledge in over 35 music genres.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes, Highly Recommended, The Last Thing I Want To Do Is Play A Song Or Songs That My Bride or Groom Dislike.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, and I also always carry a second pre-cautionary back up sound system.

Yes, I have several Light Packages available.
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?
The set-up time is determined by the location, and services being provided ( i.e. lights, 2nd sound system for the ceremony, etc. ) Most often 30-45 minutes is the average. Most Banquet Halls do provide a table, but I can bring one if necessary & pre-arranged.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No...Again another benefit of hiring DJ AL Garcia is that my high end state of the art sound systems are extremely compact. So 6 to 8 feet of space is what will be used for my DJ equipment.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I am a Eloquent Master Of Ceremonies, and I will gladly do any Necessary announcements throughout the event, as pre-determined by the customer. I will not be talking over or in between the music unnecessarily.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I prefer not to eat during an event, so I can fully concentrate on my performance. I do appreciate drinking ice water throughout the event.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Once the date has been reserved with a deposit, I Will Be There. In 30 years I have never "become unavailable on the wedding day"
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
NO
What is your overtime rate?
Overtime Rates Varies Per Contract & Event. All Rates Will Be Clearly Written On The Contract & Verbally Stated During The Initial Interview & Consultation.

Al was awesome! We could not have had a better DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception. I asked Al to play some music from Newfoundland, Canada (my hometown) and he had played every song I asked for. He started the dance party with a family favourite - it got the party going and my guests were dancing all night thereafter. I was so nervous that having a destination wedding in Florida (coming from Canada) that my guests would rather be outside then inside. Boy was I wrong - Al kept them on their feet. It was so much fun! The reception was over at midnight and my guests wanted to get keep partying and dancing so much that I had to ask Al to stay for an extra 30 minutes and he said yes without hesitation. We hired Al through Jay Goodley services and they were also great to deal with. Thank you Al for your great services - I would recommend you to any bride and groom having their wedding in South Florida.

We were disappointed with Al on our wedding day. For positives, Al communicated with us at every step of the reception. He asked and suggested times for the special dances and cake cutting and such which was great because our wedding planner skipped out early. Now for the negatives. First, let me say that we didn't get our song selections to Al until the morning of our wedding, which was the important songs plus a list of special requests, so I understand maybe a little hardship, but he is a professional and he told us he had thousands of songs on hand. At the end of our ceremony, he played the wrong song for me and my husband to walk up the aisle to. During dinner, he started playing songs from our special requests list, so my husband had to go ask him to save that for dancing, and then we never heard songs from the list again. He never interacted with the crowd or got out from behind his setup. Definitely not worth the price. After our wedding was over, we heard numerous complains from guests that he refused to play their requests and when the grooms mother tried to make a request he told her he was told he could only play songs from a list the bride and mother of the bride provided...very wrong!! My mother didn't even talk to the DJ and the request list he had (a compilation from family and my husband and I) was never played, plus it was too short to cover a whole wedding. He didn't play any good dancing music except for the very beginning and the very end. A huge sore spot when we look back at our wedding.

AL GARCIA DJ responded with the following comments:

I would like to respond and shed some light on this event and review.

Over the course of the 2 weeks prior & leading up to the date of this event I tried to acquire the details and information for this event by writing several emails & making various phone calls to the bride. Although, we did speak, and I did urge the importance of allowing me ample time to prepare and the necessary time I needed to verify & cross check their choices I did not receive any details or information till finally the day of the event. I received an email 2 HOURS prior to the time I was scheduled to leave for the event.

For the record, in over 30 years & more than 1200 weddings I have NEVER received the details and necessary information to perform a wedding 2 HOURS before..!!!! I tried to do the best I could with the little time I was given at the choosing of the bride & groom.

How could I know if it was the wrong song or not when I was not given the proper time to double check with the bride & groom? How could I know which songs were to be played during dinner & which songs were to be saved for the dancing portion of the event without any instructions or communication from the bride or groom? Yes I am A Professional DJ but unfortunately I am not a Professional Mind Reader.

I regret that this bride & groom didn't perhaps exactly understand when we met and I clearly explained in detail my style of Djing, as well as perhaps the same way they didn't hear me play their entire playlist throughout the evening in addition to several requests made by their guests. Now, what I don't understand is, if I didn't play any good dancing music why was I asked to stay an hour overtime?

I am sorry that this bride & groom do not feel satisfied with my services, and I wish them the best in their future together.

I highly recommend Al.

DJ Al was amazing! Everyone from my 24 year old sister to my 80 year old great aunt had rave reviews for him. He kept the party going on the dance floor the whole time. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable, and seamlessly incorporated different cultural traditions (my family is Jewish and my wife's family is Hispanic), such as the Horah and La Hora Loca (crazy hour). Him being bilingual was a huge plus, as some members of my wife's family didn't speak English.

DJ Al did music for both our ceremony and reception, and we couldn't have been happier.

DJ Al was super easy to work with, professional, knowledgable and brought a lot of energy to my reception. We met before my wedding to discuss my taste in music, what songs I absolutely wanted and didn't want to hear, etc. He coordinated with my decorator/day of planner and made my life easier in the days leading up to my wedding. He did an awesome job and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reception DJ.

We hired Al as the DJ for our wedding reception at the St. Peterbsurg, FL Museum of Fine Arts in April 2013. Working with Al was a true pleasure. From the very first time we met right up until our wedding day he was courteous, professional and responsive. Unlike a lot of DJs, Al does not force his own style, taste, or agenda into your party. He listens to your ideas and selections, and then does a tremendous job reading the room to determine where the playlist should or should not go as the night goes on. I have now been to three weddings since mine and can honestly say none of the DJs even compared to Al. Highly recommended!

If you're looking for someone who knows what he's doing, then Al is the man to call. Thank Al!

DJ Al was a dream come true! He was the very first vendor I contacted when we got engaged! Another DJ company referred him because I was looking for a great Latino DJ! He has so much experience, and it shows!! His professionalism and knowledge of the business just blew us away! Anytime we had questions or just wanted to chat about music, timeline, etc. we could call or email him and he would meet us at a local Starbucks or Panera at any time that worked for us! We had 3 or 4 meetings, and just knowing he would be there on our big day set my mind SO at ease! He let us give him a list of "must plays" and "do not plays," and that made us really excited to go through all our favorites and make a play list. Wedding Day: From the moment we were announced in, I felt the energy in the room, and Al never missed a beat. He had our dance floor full from the moment he let me grab the microphone to get my guests on their feet till the "Last Dance!" Over a month has passed since our wedding and we STILL have friends and family members talking and raving about how amazing our music was! Al, we can't thank you enough for providing truly professional service, and amazing music that had us dancing all night - which is EXACTLY what we wanted!! We adore you!!! <3

He let us give him a list of "must plays" and "do not plays," and that made us really excited to go through all our favorites and make a play list. Wedding Day: From the moment we were announced in, I felt the energy in the room, and Al never missed a beat. He had our dance floor full from the moment he let me grab the microphone to get my guests on their feet till the "Last Dance!" Over a month has passed since our wedding and we STILL have friends and family members talking and raving about how amazing our music was! Al, we can't thank you enough for providing truly professional service, and amazing music that had us dancing all night - which is EXACTLY what we wanted!! We adore you!!! <3 Read less

LOVED working with DJ Al Garcia! He played exactly what we wanted and had the party going all night long. He gets back to you ASAP when ever you email or need to meet up with him. He is alway professional and on time, no actually he is always early! He was a pleasure. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is in need of an amazing DJ!

Having gone to many weddings in the last year it is safe to say that I am glad to have picked DJ Al Garcia for our wedding. From beginning to end his performance was flawless as he was able to know the perfect timing through out our entire event. Being that we have a half latin half American family his choice of songs hit the spot at all times. He's presentation, announcements were executed to perfection and all of our guests came to us telling how great of a DJ he was. Top notch, highly professional and world class. I highly recommend this master of music.

DJ Garcia was fantastic! I was worried for nothing! I told him the types of music my fiance and I's family were interested in (which were two completely different types) Hispanic and country. He couldnt have done better and everyone was on there feet all night! Everyone from both families complimented the music played all night and still to this day. He came to check in with us every so often to make sure the music was good and to let us know before any announcments. He even told us to let him know to turn up or down the music.

All I can say is wow! Al Garcia will definitely be getting a call back from me for another event. He went above and beyond with our wedding music. I'm very finicky about music and only like to listen to certain kinds. I'm not really much of a mainstream music type of person and neither is my husband. I sent him a list of mine and my husbands favorite songs. He didn't play a couple, he played almost all of them! He kept everyone up and dancing. He even had my grandma on the floor for a while. He really created a special atmosphere for us and we had so much fun! I HIGHLY recommend Al Garcia for your wedding.

Once we met Al we knew we had made the right choice not only is he an awesome and professional DJ but he is a genuine good person too. If they had more stars to give him we would have given him 10 stars!

Al was amazing. He played at our wedding in May and really put on a show. My wife put me incharge of booking a DJ, and boy did I look good after! During the planning process, he was always responsive and really put us at ease about the music. He played the right song at the right time, all night. Aside from handling the DJ portion, he gave us tips on the actual planning of the reception. He was in contact with us the entire time. Friends and family haven't stopped talking about his music and about how much fun they had dancing. Al Garica is a professional DJ who truly loves what he does...and it shows. I would recommend him for anyone who wants people up and dancing at their event.

Al did a great job for us. We only had a rough outline of what we wanted in terms of music and presentation, and Al gave us a number of options. He was very good about giving us his opinion, while making sure we knew the final decision was ours to make. I could tell from our very first discussion that Al was a professional and I wouldn't have to worry about anything (which was very important). Al is clearly comfortable on the microphone, but never over the top. He made sure the reception was about us. We gave him the names of a few artists we wanted to hear (Frank Sinatra, Van Morrison, Jack Johnson), and he used those selections to create the atmosphere we were looking for. Later in the evening, he also got people out on the dance floor, which was great. We'd recommend Al to anyone getting married in the Sarasota area.

I hired Al through Jay Goodley Productions. Jay acts as a liason between the musicians and you. Jay coordinated with Al to make sure he was available, gave me Al's e-mail, and sent me a sheet to fill in with the details of what type of music I wanted, the details of my reception, our first dance song, timing, and any other special music we wanted (or didn't want) at the reception. We could even request a specific attire (I.e., formal, tie, informal, etc). I e-mailed my info sheet to Al so there was no confusion on what music we wanted played and what we expected from Al. Al showed up on time, had all of the equipment (including multicolor dance lighting) and played all of the songs that I requested. I gave Al specific songs to play and types of music and artists we like and Al filled in the gap. He was very professional and did a great job. Thanks Al!

Al did a great job at our wedding reception! He had a challenge ahead of him with us because we threw a surprise wedding on our friends and family. We did nearly nothing traditional so we needed someone to be creative along with us. Al was that guy! He did a great job getting people up dancing and having a good time. He really kept the party going until the very end. When we first hired Al, he asked us for a brief song list to tell him the type of music we liked (and the music we hoped we'd never hear again!). With that information he mixed a great song list throughout the night. (He was like the "genius" button on my iPod!) We could not have asked for a better DJ. Thank you so much, Al, for making our reception SO much fun for everyone!!!
Love,
Tom and Lori

Thank you so much, Al, for making our reception SO much fun for everyone!!!
Love,
Tom and Lori Read less

DJ Al drove all the way from Bradenton to the Brandon area to meet with me to discuss my wedding music. He was very nice and answered all my questions. We communicated via e-mail several times and he always responded very promptly. He even provided me with a list of music and made suggestions. On the wedding day, he dressed appropriately and played the music we wanted. The only problem was that at the end of the night, Dj Al surprised us with an overtime charge and told my groomsman that he started early, which was a complete surprise to all of us since we started everything on time. At first I refused to pay, but DJ Al insisted and because it was my wedding day and we had to leave our venue, we decided to just pay it. I really don't feel like this charge should have applied to us since we started on time and if that didn't happen, I would have given Dj Al 4.5 stars.

Thank You Tiffany, and I'm sorry you perhaps didn't understand that we began a half hour earlier than the contracted time, and due to the extra time your balance was slightly higher.

Al Garcia and his lovely wife were wonderful to work with. If you are seeking a professional yet fun DJ that will keep your wedding guests dancing and celebrating all through the night, look no further! He did a fantastic job! Prior to our ceremony he made it possible for my wife to make a wonderful reading for me before she walked the aisle, it was truly something I will never forget. The ceremony was great and our guests were able to hear everyone involved in the ceremony. After the most amazing sunset ever, all the guests poured into a beautiful reception hall that was perfectly lit with mood lighting that Al provided to accent the flowers and décor and make the room the most beautiful it ever looked. The music was more than music throughout the night; it was more like a soundtrack that beautifully represented the evening. He was great behind the microphone but maintained us as the center of attention. Al Garcia is simply the best DJ in the area and we are very grateful for what he did to make our wedding day a truly special one. Thank you Al!!!

If dancing is a priority for your wedding reception - book DJ Al. He kept all of our guests on the dance floor, playing the perfect mix of Cuban and American music, as we'd requested. He knows how to keep a party going! In addition to that he's a consummate professional and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with the father-of-the-bride dance song. It turns out the song I had my heart set on exists only on a cassette tape from the early 1980s... DJ Al made a special trip to meet us for a cassette exchange so that he could make a digital copy of it, and even gave us a cd of it so we'd have it. We can't say enough good things about him. He did such an amazing job and we were thrilled with the result. He gave us great advice on timing and logistics as well. We're based in DC and planned our wedding from afar, but had no worries about DC Al coming through. He knows his stuff and is a really, really nice guy to boot. Book him for your party, you won't be disappointed!

Al Garcia was the epitome of a professional from the planning stages to the day of our wedding. He always had prompt responses to any questions my wife and I had (really helped alleviate a lot of stress). As for the wedding day itself, he always seemed to have a spare microphone ready, and the kept the dance floor packed! I would recommend Al Garcia to anyone who is looking for a DJ, especially if you are looking for a DJ for a wedding service.

DJ Al was really a great vendor at our June 2011 wedding. Al was very flexible with me during our meetings and emails, and he really "got" the feel of the music perfectly at all parts of the reception. The dance floor was packed the whole evening even though we only had 100 guests at the reception. Al also had a neat uplighting package that really transformed the outdoor courtyard to an upscale and modern reception. He also showed up to the event looking professional and kept in contact with me (the bride) and the day-of coordinator to make sure the timeline was perfect and each event was happening with the proper people at the ideal moment. Furthermore, AL made a huge effort to pronounce all of the names correctly. I couldn't imagine a better wedding DJ. Pick AL!

We had a small beach wedding and we decided to hire DJ Al so he could kind of play some background type music. Our thinking was that because it was such a small group of friends and family there probably wouldn't be much dancing.

We were wrong, not only did he get Everybody up & dancing, but nobody wanted it to end, it was fantastic. Al played some really good oldies along with some of the more current songs, and everyone was on the dance floor.

All of our guests kept saying how wonderful the music at our wedding was and how nice it all turned out. We were very pleased with his services and we would recommend him to our friends and family.

Thanks Again AL,

Absolutely Excellent..!!! A Great DJ, very professional & polite. We first heard him at a friend's wedding, and he was great. But, I believe he was even better at my wedding :-)

Al took the time to track down and find all the music we requested and he played it all at the perfect time throughout the evening. We had some pretty difficult names in our bridal party and he got them all right. Thank You for that, Al :-)

His sound & light package was a good option for us. We feel we got a great deal compared to what some of my other friends have paid for other dj's. My sister has already reserved her date for next year with him.

My wedding was great and everybody had a blast, and I know AL was a big part of the reason. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You Al You Were Awesome..!! Betty & David Jothe

We were very impressed with DJ Al when we met and had several meetings with him to plan exactly what we wanted regarding music at our reception. We planned specific songs for special events and then were shocked when the wrong songs were played and we were given no notice of events happening. Our photographers and videographer had a difficult time due to his lack of communication during the reception. The groom was not even in the room when a planned event was begun by DJ Al. We were so confident going into the night about his services and then very surprised and disappointed by what occurred. It felt as if he brought a different bride's file for the reception. Wish we could be leaving a better comment, but would have a very hard time recommending him to future bride and groom.

AL GARCIA DJ responded with the following comments:

I'm very sadden to hear that you weren't completely satisfied with my performance. I take great strides and effort to make every single event I perform at a grand success. But with that said I am human I do make mistakes. I apologize for any mistakes I may have made that evening.

Now let me try to explain the "wrong songs" comment. There was a DVD produced and provided to the banquet facility to be aired on the in house 8 TV monitors. When it was played it had music embedded into it which was heard throughout the in house pa system at full volume giving the impression that it was being played thru the DJ system at the exact same time specific events were taking place. As soon as I figured that out I immediately alerted the staff so they could lower the volume of the in house pa system.

Okay now for the "lack of communication" comment. I was informed by the Bride that there would be a day of wedding planner there to act as a liaison between the Bride & Groom & all the vendors. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of trusting that the communications I was giving and receiving from the wedding planner were accurate and being relayed to all the other vendors as well as the Bride & Groom. I should've double checked that everyone was informed and that we were all on the same page. But again I made the mistake of assuming that the day of wedding planner was on the case.

Going forward I will always check that my messages are being properly received by all the parties involved. Again I apologize for my mistakes.

He was open to our suggestions and originality when it came to the music for our ceremony, introduction and reception. He knew exactly what equipment to use for a beach wedding and his timing was perfect. They say that the music makes the reception and our dance floor was packed all night long.

DJ Al was truly amazing! Extremely helpful prior to the wedding. He responded to all of our inquiries and had tons of music knowledge. Upon meeting with him he was extremely professional and really listened to our needs/likes/dislikes.

During the wedding everything was on time and perfect! DJ Al made sure that we were aware of what was taking place well before it was going to happen to ensure that we know he was ready when we were (as in dances etc). Also, one of my biggest and greatest appreciations was that DJ Al only took song requests from the bridal party.

DJ Al was truly amazing! Extremely helpful prior to the wedding. He responded to all of our inquiries and had tons of music knowledge. Upon meeting with him he was extremely professional and really listened to our needs/likes/dislikes.

During the wedding everything was on time and perfect! DJ Al made sure that we were aware of what was taking place well before it was going to happen to ensure that we know he was ready when we were (as in dances etc). Also, one of my biggest and greatest appreciations was that DJ Al only took song requests from the bridal party.

Al Garcia was an amazing DJ. I had a destination wedding in FL. He was always very responsive to any questions or concerns that I had. He was a great help in helping me plan my destination wedding. I don't think I would have been as happy going with any other vendor. I think all Brides would be very happy and comfortable using Al as there DJ.

He was great! He really catered to the crowd. I like the current music but most people did not dance to it. Al seemed to catch that quickly and play more oldies, which was fine because more people danced and enjoyed themselves. On your wedding day that is all you want, is for people to enjoy themselves to the fullest.

Having DJ Al Garcia at my event truly makes me wish I could just come up excuses to have event after event. He was tuly the life of the party and kept the dance floor over flowing all night at our reception. What truly stands out is his ability to read to the crowd and feel the party, when you put together with his "I love you guys" personality a better DJ can not be found. Not only did I find a DJ that met the needs of my wife, but hopfully a friend for life.

Aldo really gets the party going- from the latest trendy dance music to retro, disco & favorite oldies. I've been fortunate enough to have him play at my own wedding, my sisters wedding and I hope many more celebrations to come. If you love what you do, you do it right- enough said with DJ AL loves what he does! Thank you for all the amazing memories you've made even better :)

We had wonderful repsonses from our guests and were very impressed with the wide range of songs. They said it was the best reception they had been to. I was also very surprised, but pleased, at the number of people that continuously stayed on the dance floor. It was a wonderful night to remember and I have DJ Al to thank for helping make my wedding day so special and memorable!

He made me feel comfortable and assured in his services. I would reccommend him to any bride! He played a great progression of music and had everyone dancing all night!!!

Al Garcia was the perfect choice for our daughter's wedding. We had a mixed crowd with ages ranging from 3 years old to 88 years old. Al kept the dance floor packed with an excellent selection of music pleasing the entire group. He also did a find job of announcing all the important events such as the introductions, cake cutting, boquet toss etc. The most important part however is after the reception I asked my daughter (the bride) if she was satisfied. She said he was excellent, just what she wanted! She also stated that the other vendors (banquet, florists, photographers, etc) were asking about the DJ to get his card. They wanted to recommend him and commented they needed a DJ like him for their wedding refferals. Five stars for Al Garcia!

My daughter's wedding situation was very unusual. We had to plan a wedding in 4 wks to to a military move to Germany. We found Al Garcia through a wedding planner and he agreed to do the wedding at the last minute. The reception was super fun and he kept everyone movin' & groovin'!! He worked with the bride & groom to choose the type of music they liked and did a great job. He also helped us with the music for the outdoor ceremony which we sprung on him at the last minute. He didn't even hesitate and really helped us out. I would recommend him for any occasion!

3 words: AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!! We had a huge range of music genres throughout our wedding (everything from hip-hop & reggae to soca to Indian Bhangra!!) and Al managed to mix the music together and seamlessly flow from song to song. Even with huge "must-play list" we gave him, he managed to play pretty much everything we wanted to hear in the time he was given and totally played to the crowd with each set. I cant tell you the number of people who came up to me throughout the night and even after the wedding, and commented about how GREAT the music was. He just kept the party going throughout the night. His MC skills were excellent as well (even with some of the more difficult names to pronounce!). All in all we would highly HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced and fun to work with DJ. He is amazing about responding to emails and staying on top of even the smallest details (ie - special announcements, ect). Thank you Al!! You helped make our wedding a HUGE success and the best day of our lives!

3 words: AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING!! We had a huge range of music genres throughout our wedding (everything from hip-hop & reggae to soca to Indian Bhangra!!) and Al managed to mix the music together and seamlessly flow from song to song. Even with huge "must-play list" we gave him, he managed to play pretty much everything we wanted to hear in the time he was given and totally played to the crowd with each set.

Very professional, extremely cooperative and easy to deal with. I was very picky with regards to the music I want played and Al was able to track down and incorporate every song we wanted played, including several songs that have not been released on CD or MP3. He set the tone for the whole wedding and by the end of the night had everyone dancing. Many guests commented on how great the playlist was and asked for a list of songs played. Al also did a phenomenal job of managing guest requests without offending anyone to make sure none of our extensive "do not play" list got played.

It had been a battle between me and my wife over a DJ vs band, I won the argument for a DJ and after all was said and done my wife couldn't have been happier with how things turned out.

I can't say enough about how great a job Al did. The only potential downside was that everybody's face was gleaming with sweat in the photos because they were working so hard on the dance floor, which is not a bad thing in my book.

Al Garcia performed admirably at our wedding on Memorial Day Weekend 2009. When my fiancée and I first met with Al to coordinate the entertainment portion of wedding, we were highly stressed from planning the entire wedding ourselves. From the onset, Al with his calm and organized disposition, greatly reduced our anxiety as he recommended ways to arrange the entertainment portion of our wedding reception. Our wedding had it challenges since it was not the usual wedding with simply a DJ spinning music. It required significantly more coordination and transitions since our wedding besides having Al spinning tunes, had the groom’s sister’s band performing, the groom singing a love song to his bride, the groom’s daughter performing a Broadway love song, and the couple dancing. Al provided great suggestions on how to organize and sequence the band’s play list. He gave recommendations for the types of music to perform during the various reception activities from cocktail/hors d’oeuvres to dinner to dancing.

Al was a huge HIT at our wedding ceremony & reception. He helped us come up with a plan, and delivered exactly what he promised. He read the crowd perfectly and was a true delight to work with. We recommend him without reservation, and would be happy to work with him again!

Al was great. We met with him and he made us feel extremely comfortable with his professionalism, music selection, personality, way he would perform at our wedding. He walked us through how to go about getting the music right for our wedding and the "don't play list" was a great idea that made it so easy to get the music right. We heard on numerous times throughout the night from every age group at the wedding that the music was great. He picked on the spot the perfect song for an impromptu dance with my grandmother and had it ready in seconds. He also moved us nicely through the reception with plenty of freedom to make changes as needed. Basically he can be anything you need him to be and will do it right - he gets it and makes it happen.
