These reviews are from so long ago that I just wanted to make sure people know that Alan is still excellent! We hired Alan for our Nestldown wedding in 2014. He did a really fantastic job. I've seen some wedding DJs who make too many announcements or play too loud or don't know how to read a crowd. Alan really makes the day about you. We gave him a list of example songs we liked for different parts of the night and the music was absolutely perfect in volume and style. Excellent song changes (our guests did not leave the dance floor until our exit). He's a great emcee and he's got all the lights and equipment needed for a fun party. I hear he recently got a photo booth also, but we didn't use it. I highly recommend him!

I can't think of anything that would have made the night better. Everything about Reggie and Alan was professional from the pre-event meetings that we requested to the night of the reception.
The event went as great as I could have ever hoped for. The music and the flow the entire night was unforgettable. I appreciate Reggie going over the allotted time a little to satisfy the party hungry crowd. I'm sure that is a fine line to straddle to please the crowd an

Holy cow - Alan is amazing. He was our wedding DJ this weekend and boy did we have fun. One of the biggest compliments my husband and I got about our wedding was the music. Our guests wouldn't leave the dance floor! Alan is incredibly professional, fun, and skilled. The communication was fantastic, and he returned my emails and phone calls quickly. He even called the day before the wedding just to see how I was feeling and to reassure me about everything. Highly recommend.

Alan was the perfect DJ and emcee for our wedding reception at Hiller Aviation museum. Meeting with him, I felt like he knew exactly what to do so we didn't have to come up with plans or micromanage our reception. Alan is a licensed pilot, and came to our gig in costume and in character, and made announcements throughout the event like an airline pilot. Awesome! The music was spot- on, we told him what artists we liked and who not to play, and he knew exactly what to do. The final song was phenomenal, and we couldn't have asked for a better send off to the start of our Journey.

Everything overall was great. We felt that Alan understood perfectly the atmosphere we were aiming for based upon our requested song list, which was our main concern overall. He seemed to work well with our wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful in planning, and was on time with everything we asked him to do.

Alan was an amazing DJ. Right from the start he was excited about doing our Halloween Themed wedding. He had great communication and was always available during phone/email if we needed him. He was also able to help bounce ideas around that enhanced our event.

On the day of the event, he showed up and was able to help out however we needed him to. His upbeat personality was just what we needed to get the party started, and keep it going.

I would defiantly recommend his services to anyone!

Alan did a fantastic job as the DJ/MC for our wedding ceremony and reception. We spoke on the phone early on while my wife and I were deciding on our DJ and Alan gave us advice on things to consider in the selection process that we weren't thinking about. We had a couple meetings at the event venue to discuss logistics and our requests for the reception, and Alan made suggestions about our timeline for the day which we found very helpful. Alan was even able to attend our rehearsal to meet everyone and do the walk through. The ceremony went exactly as planned, as did the reception. We discussed our music preferences with Alan and he was able to feel out the crowd and made great music selections for the dance party at the reception. Everything was fantastic and sounded great, and Alan knew how to get the energy going. On top of that, everything was absolutely worry free and we always felt like we were on the same page as Alan."
