Richard was incredibly professional and played all of the songs that we requested. He made sure that he was clear on our expectations and he definitely exceeded them! He was fun and lively without being overbearing. He knew when to keep it quiet and when to bring the excitement. He also made us a cd with all of our songs and stayed later than planned at no extra cost. We highly recommend him!!

We booked DJ Terry for our wedding and I am so happy that we did! He really listened to what we wanted and had every song that we requested. He did a great job of feeling out the crowd and keeping everyone dancing and having fun the whole time! On top of that, Bulles DJ's was the best price that we found anywhere (and I'm definitely one to hunt for a bargain!) I would reccomend them to a friend anytime. Thanks DJ terry!

DJ Ricky was fantastic at our outdoor wedding! We gave him a huge playlist due to requests on our rsvp cards and he was able to get about 80% them mixed into the reception. He was very professional and had extremely quick response times to all the emails I sent him asking questions/concerns. He even had great recommendations for our ceremony music and upgraded the sound system for us!! We are not from Maryland and it is vendors like Bulles Deejays, that had our destination wedding go off with out a hitch!!!

DJ Ricky was the saving grace at a wedding reception that did go as planned for my daughter. Without Ricky's outgoing personality, the reception would have been a total disaster. He kept things moving and helped us in getting through the event. I will recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ.

We had DJ Ricky and he was great! Even though we had snow in October he allowed everyone to have a great time! He played everything that we asked for and nothing we didn't and followed my instructions to a tee! He also did the ceremony music which was also amazing seeing as how I had very non-traditional song choices! There are so many amazing pictures of the packed dance floor! Thanks so much DJ Ricky!

It was such a pleasure working with Ricky in the time leading up to and on our wedding day. We are more than pleased on how the night went and couldn't have asked for better service and professionalism. My husband and I are super particular about things, especially many of the details of our wedding, and we are so appreciative Ricky was able to work with us and our specific music demands. He had ALL our music we requested ready to go. He planned ahead for the treacherous trip over the Bay bridge and was ready to go when our event started. We highly recommend Ricky (and Bulles DeeJays) and would definitely hire them again!

Bulles Deejays was a pleasure to work with. He met with us beforehand, had a comprehensible planning sheet and answered any question we had. All of the guests at our wedding danced from the time he started to the time he stopped. He not only Deejay ed but he helped with the flow of events throughout the night as well.

DJ Ricky did a great job. He promptly returned phone calls, listened to what we asked for and did it on the wedding day, arrived in plenty of time for setup, and was a pleasure to work with. We had some unique requests for our wedding, including having our own MCs (who he worked with very well) and a specific playlist, and he was successful with each. Definitely recommended!

We worked with Ricky from Bulles DJ's. Ultimately, we were EXTREMELY satisfied with the service he provided. He met with us several months before the event and we were happy to find he's a very down-to-earth guy with a quiet demeanor. Leading up to the event he admittedly he didn't respond right away to our emails but when he did he was very responsive to our requests/concerns and his recommendations were outstanding. We feel his perspective and tastes were very in line with ours and he ultimately delivered an outstanding performance - he helped us arrange our event-space for a perfectly sized dance floor (something we hadn't considered before the event) and it was packed the whole time! His cost was very fair (much less than other performers on the Knot or Wedding wire) and we highly recommend him. He will definitely be my DJ of choice for future events in the DC/Baltimore area!

I being a music snob knew what i wanted my playlist to be. Ricky did a great job of protecting my guests from me. Metal at a wedding never goes well. I got enough of what i wanted and Ricky kept the floor packed. Had a blast. Wouldn't have happened without his help.

It's hard to explain the experience we had with Bulles DJ, specifically DJ Ricky Rick. His music was excellent, however, when he used the microphone it was terrible. He made snide comments into the microphone, specifically when we were about to say our prayer before our dinner. Additionally, he seemed disorganized. While I (the bride) was enjoying cocktail hour, he was asking me questions about what he should be doing for the rest of the reception. I felt that those questions should have already been handled either before the wedding, or they should have been directed to the wedding coordinator for the hotel. It was almost as if he was immature for his age. However, his music was very good. I asked him to keep the dance floor packed, and he did a good job at that. I would recommend meeting with him before hand to decide for yourself if you can handle someone like that at your wedding. Overall, he did well, however, we could have done without the snide comments, and disorganization.

Bulles Deejays responded with the following comments:

Nicole: The DJ that you are referring to is DJ "Original Rick Roberts". That is the DJ that performed your wedding reception. He was willing to perform your wedding reception at a heavily discounted rate since you were a Military Couple, AND he offered to not charge you for the additional sound systems. Rick Roberts has A LOT of respect for Military employees, and that is why he asked me to keep the price down low for you. You noted that you required 3 DJ systems. One for cocktail hour, one for dinner, and one for dancing which typically costs extra. DJ Rick Roberts provided all of this without any help, and showed up at the venue over a full 2 hours prior to the reception start time to do so. Even the coordinator at the hotel mentioned that "He was very brave to handle running 3 DJ systems on his own as most DJs are not willing to do so". You seemed most concerned about the price, and in the end Rick went above and beyond in providing what was needed for the price point you wanted. I apologize that DJ Rick Roberts was not a good fit for you on a personal level. As for the "Snide" Remarks, this is an unusual comment as I have never had that comment about Rick Roberts or any of our other DJs ever! I'm not sure of the "snide" remarks that you speak of, but if they were that bad to the point that you were not happy with our service as a company then why did you not contact me to discuss your displeasure after the wedding reception? Rick Roberts does have an up-beat personality, but he has not been known to make bad or ridiculous comments on the microphone. Also, the reason that the DJ approached you a few times is because the venue's coordinator was no where to be found when he needed to know something important with the timeline. We always want to make sure that things run smoothly, and our clients have a great time at their wedding reception so if we have a question or two we ask the Bride/Groom if something is OK to do or not, or if they are ready to proceed with the timeline. You commented that the music was great, and your guests danced the night away. My report was exactly that from the hotel as well. Rick Roberts also showed up on time(early as a matter of fact) and performed as contracted graciously for you and your guests as he has much respect for military employees. In the end, I'm really baffled by the low review that you left for us seeing that our DJ performed as contracted, and everyone had a great time, and he provided much more than typical DJ services would be willing to provide at a venue which has 3 levels and stairs included. As always, we welcome the chance for all of our couples to meet with me, or any other one of our DJs beforehand so that they can make an informed decision for their Wedding DJ.

To all future clients: We do our best to provide a satisfaction guaranteed customer service experience when you book one of our DJs. We consider all reviews under a 4.0 absolutely unacceptable by our service standards, and we ask that you contact us directly to discuss any dis-pleasure that you may have had with our DJ service. - DJ Ricky Bulles
