My DJ didn't quite listen to our requests which was disappointing since we spent so much time talking about what we really wanted. However, for the price it was okay and people were dancing. I just wish my requests were taken more seriously and that there was a little more attention paid to announcing.

Unfortunately, this DJ service did not turn out well for us. The DJ made many errors in announcing names, failing to play the recessional song, and other such things. We were very disappointed.

A friend recommended Al with Ameritune as she had used him for their wedding about 12 years ago, but has also been to several weddings he DJ'd at since their own. She told me that each wedding's music was completely different and matched the couple's party. She was totally right! Al gave us fantastic advice in planning the musical parts of our reception. He themed music well for dinner as well as a surprise gift that some friends planned for us. He broke up our "must plays" and traditional first dances perfectly so that our dance floor was packed all night. Al did a wonderful job in accommodating musical requests and implementing everything that we discussed prior to our wedding. One of our friends who is engaged even asked Al for his card for their wedding next year. Throughout the entire planning process and day of, Al was prompt, professional and competitively priced. I highly recommend Al with Ameritune and thank him for helping make our celebration one to remember!

Our DJ was amazing! We used Jim. I have to say he exceeded my expectations. All I wanted was for people to dance, I wanted to accommodate all music and I don't think Jim could have done a better job at that. The dance floor was seriously packed until the last song, and I think the party could have kept going. He did an amazing job. I also have to say, I know Jim has done a million weddings but he still made us feel special about ours, and he looked like he still loves his job which means a lot. I would recommend them, Jim was very professional and did an awesome job! We also got a lot of compliments :)

When looking at the videos of the different Djs we felt a connection with Jim S. However, from the first discussion when I explained what I wanted the first dance to be, he argued and explained what he usually does. I tried to explain that we didnt have the normal guest list and it wouldnt go very well. He told me that he had been doing this for years and can read a crowd. I allowed him to use his skills, after all I did hire him for his exepertise. He mixed up one of the ceremony songs with a brides from the next day. At the reception my sister, MOH, had to ask him twice to do the garter and bouquet toss because people were leaving. He hardly played any of the genre that we requested, did not start playing dance music until 45 minutes to an hour before the reception ended. By then most of the guests had left. My mom had requested a song early on, and it wasnt played for 3 hours. She was gone by then. The guests commented that the DJ appeared to be in his own world and not really paying attention to the surroundings. I feel if he was, he may have been able to change up the songs a bit. I was very dissapointed with the overall service. I would recommend a bride using their services to make up a song list. Not for the entire night, but maybe for 30 out of the 45 songs they can play for a 3 hour reception. The rare good things were the introductions, the price, and the dinner music. I would recommend them however, if you take the recommendations above.

Our DJ was Al Mitchell and he was fantastic. I was the groom, so I'm slightly biased, but I have never been to a wedding where the dance floor was filled from literally start to finish. And then we extended another 30 minutes because everyone was having such a great time! A perfect mix of music for all crowds and fulfilled every obscure dance/ hip hop/ techno song we requested. I don't normally post reviews unless its dreadfully awful or completely amazing and this is on the amazing side of things. Highly recommend. You won't be disappointed. Get him a song list in advance to give him time to prepare though. I think that helped. For what it's worth, my wife and I walked in to an instrumental version of a song by Bone Thugs N Harmony. I'm pretty sure that took some digging...

While planning our wedding, my maid of honor suggested that her cousin has a DJ business why dont you give Ameritunes a call, so I did. When i called the first time it was like a pary on the phone. The lady I talked to was wonderful, she got all the paperwork in order and I asked for Beth to be our DJ. Beth was so great on the phone when she called, she is truly a professional. I had know idea what i was doing but she guided me thru one step at a time. My only perameters where that we like country music and the dont play list consisted of no rap and no Taylor Swift. Sitting at the head table I could see my mother sitting at her seat swaying to the music and smiling, my husband at the same time pointed to his older aunt also swaying and smiling. What a beautiful event! She played everything from Neal Diamond to hip hop. Beth Rocks! I cant say enough, Love you Ameritunes! XOXOXO
