Working with Choice City DJs was difficult and disappointing.

Choice City DJs were included with my *incredible venue* because I was planning on renting sound equipment and hooking up my iPod with my brother as emcee (I wish I would have done that....). The DJ -- Damian -- was unable to attend our meeting, so he sent his associate. The associate was apathetic and unenthusiastic toward my fiance, mother, and me. She acted like we were a thorn in her side and couldn't wait to shove us out the door.

I felt unsettled, so I emailed Damian, requesting a phone meeting so we'd be on the same page. He agreed, then blew off our meeting. When we finally talked, it was GREAT! He asked me to send all the music specifics over, so I did. Then, TWO DAYS before my wedding, his assistant (not his associate) called at said they never received my playlists. I told them to check their inbox, and they found my email. After everything was sorted out, I called back and said I felt as if they had forgotten about me at almost every step of our interactions. They apologized numerous times and reassured me they'd be at the wedding playing the music that we wanted.

They arrived at the wedding on time. Damian and his associate were aloof. The ceremony music went great -- except for the fact that Damian missed the timing on our procession song. The music didn't begin playing until we were half-way down the aisle. Huge mess up.

The cocktail music went well (we worked off my iPod's playlists), but instead of being a DJ and playing other music during dinner, he just kept the cocktail music on repeat. After our first dance, things went stale. He didn't play our playlist. Instead he played five slow songs in a row. Huge buzz kill and people were not interested in dancing right away. Plus, we could barely hear the music.

I do not recommend Choice City DJ to anyone. They were unprofessional, difficult to communicate with, and their service was disappointing.

I was really particular about the songs I wanted, and he played every song from my list! It was great! My parents were thrilled that the music was loud enough to dance to, but not so loud you couldn't have a conversation.The only complaint I have is it was hard to set up a meeting time with the DJ. Other than that, he was great.

Damian and his wife did great! I was probably a really hard bride to work with:) I am soo indecisive! And our wedding party was really hard to please. Damian got lots of complaints with the music he was playing, but it was what we had wanted, and he was very professional about it, and just let them know, that was what the bride and groom wanted. When it came to the toasting, My sister took it upon her self to start pouring the champagne. Well she used the wrong champagne on the head table, and i got upset. With that being said, Damian came over and Helped get everything straightened out and even helped pour champagne! They were wonderful, would definitely recommend them!

They were very professional, very responsive and very flexible on the kind of music to be played. With that being said, we weren't very happy with the day of services. They weren't very upbeat and they called last call for alchohol WAYYY before they should have. When I went over to the bar tender who was the owner of the venue we used and asked why it was last call, she said we had plenty of time and not to worry about that he was just calling last call because the first shuttle was there, but it pretty much made the reception over and people left after that which I wasn't very happy about that. All in all, I had a great wedding and a great time, but that is def one thing I would have changed and my husband would have also.

Choice City DJ's did an amazing job at our wedding. We just got married on July 2 at the Omni Interlocken in Broomfield. Damian did EVERYTHING to make sure I was stress free and ran everything by me rather then listening to guests. One example is that my dad wanted to do a welcome speech but knowing my dad... would have taken up a half hour!!! So Damian came by to tell me what my dad had requested.

This DJ service is professional and played the best type of music for my crowd. I would highly recommend them to every bride I know. Can't wait to use Choice City's services again. Thanks Damian!!!

Damen and Choice City were great and would reccomend them to everyone. Met with him about a month prior to our wedding and went over everything weith him. He was great and answered all of my questions and had everything that we wanted. He was the DJ that also did our event and he was a great help all night long. Our reception ran really smoothly and I credit that all to him.

They tried to screw me over by charging more than was agreed upon and then tried to make up some reason why we were being charged more. They did our ceremony and reception and I could hardly hear the music during the ceremony. He was unpreparred when he was supposed to start songs and my husband and his mom stood in the middle of the dance floor for a while while he frantically looked for the music that he was supposed to play for their song.

Damian was great to work with but we didn't meet our DJ, Geoff, until the night of our wedding. He called a couple days before the wedding and asked us questions about things we had gone over in detail with Damian, which was discouraging. He had not seen our playlist, timeline or requests yet and it was frustrating since we had done everything in advance with Damian. The night of the wedding he was a bit late and chose to play songs not on our playlist (including boy bands) instead of completing our entire playlist first and asking for more requests. Other than that, I would highly recommend them. Our night was amazing and it would have been helpful to meet with our actual DJ prior to the event to make sure our requests were clear.

We would rate this DJ a 2 out of 5. Given, we only had one of their 5 DJ's, but we never got to meet our DJ before the event, only with the owner, at the event, the DJ showed up with chew in his lip, didn't play the music we asked for, and rushed us through everything. He started the toasts without the maid of honor in the room even though she specifically asked him to wait until she got back from outside. It wasn't a pleasant experience, and it's the only thing about our wedding that we would rate under a 4.8 - and so would our guests. Sorry Choice City, I can NOT recommend your services.

We hired Choice City DJs for our wedding at Snow Mountain Ranch near Winter Park, CO. I specifically hired them after seeing Chris as a DJ at my friend's wedding in September 2008. I thought he was great, and as I said, specifically requested him and was assured that he would be our DJ. We prepaid in full about a year in advance, we got what I think is a pretty reasonable deal for them to drive up to the mountains for us, considering they bring their own equipment and I didn't have to pay for lodging or anything for them. After booking them, we didn't give it another thought until a couple of days before the wedding when we were having problems with other vendors. We called to confirm with them, and were told that Chris would not be our DJ, but someone else would! What could we do at that point - we just went with it. Anyway I thought the young DJ they sent was just okay. They request that you send them a list of songs you would like to hear by about 2 weeks before the event, which we did. I didn't want to be too controlling about the songs so I pared down our list to about.. maybe 50. And they definitely had every song I had requested. However I was very surprised to learn that beyond our requests, the selection was incredibly small, without very many current songs. And when I say current, I don't mean the ones that came out last month - I mean the past couple of years. I should have micromanaged a little bit more and created an EXHAUSTIVE list for them to potentially play. As I said, I was not all that impressed with the DJ, however, he did have most of the guests, young and old, on the dance floor a lot. But I had two major problems with him that come to mind right now. First of all, when he announced my husband and I, he sort of stopped in the middle of saying our names - obviously checking his paper again to get them right! It was so obvious that the pictures of our entrance include my husband looking at him in disbelief. We have short, common, easy to pronounce names. The second frustration was that he would not play the songs I requested. White dress = bride = play her song requests, stat! Early in the reception, I asked him to play a current dance song. A couple of songs went by, and it didn't come up. Okay, I asked him again. A couple more songs went by, and it didn't come up again! Are you serious? So I asked a third time, and stood there until he started it, and finally got my dance song. Later I made another request that hadn't been played yet, and when I went back a few songs later to ask again, he said in disbelief "Did you REALLY want me to play that song?" Anyway these things are not huge issues, and like I said, we got a good deal, but I wouldn't hire this company again.
