For 25 years Choice Entertainment has been growing strong with thousands of happy brides and clients! Because DJ/MCs are the 'brand ambassador' for your big day, we train all of our DJ/MCs to be professional, thorough, and creative guides for your event. According to Choice owner, Bill Gilliam, “We work hard to raise our client's expectations about what a DJ/MC should be. Then on wedding day, we go above and beyond to ensure flawless, fun, and stress-free events time and time again.”

Professional Disc Jockeys Choice DJ’s have been recognized as the best by customers, wedding professionals,the readers of Richmond Magazine and WeddingWire.com users year after year!! So what makes Choice DJ’s so different?

Experience – 10 to 20 years and the savvy gained from hundreds of receptions is typical.

Training -- Learning from the best in the business ensures a flow of new ideas for personalizing receptions and consistently flawless performances.

Preparation – Key to success! Choice DJ’s meet with clients IN PERSON to offer ideas for a smooth event schedule and music playlist (and DO NOT playlist too)!

Professionalism – There will be no surprises, unprofessional behavior or embarrassing moments.

Great Bands Live musicians can add romance and excitement to a reception. Choice represents dozens of the best acts, from elegant classical and jazz combos, to exciting dance bands. Choice consultants are there (in-person, by phone and on-line) to help narrow the huge number of options to one that fits perfectly…

Our advice is always FREE... call us and pick our brains for ideas!!!

Our service goes well beyond just helping you find a band. Once you have secured a contract with the band for your reception, we will send you an event planning tool exclusive to Choice Entertainment. The Choice Planning Guide is a comprehensive guide to communicating the vision of your reception to the band leader. In it you will find options and ideas for just about every aspect of your reception you can think of and some you could never imagine. We will be with you right up to the wedding date to offer advice, answer questions, and make sure your big day is anxiety free.

Entertainment Insurance Unfortunately, there is no such thing! Choice offers peace of mind that is almost as good. Deposits paid stay safely in an escrow account – a solid contract with reputable artists means the entertainers will be there – the 24 hour, Choice Emergency Line has helped to maintain a 100% performance record on all Choice weddings...100% after 25 years totally ROCKS!!

The Value Sometimes it costs a little more to hire true professionals. DJs charge what they are worth. The extra expense might make the difference between a party and the celebration of a lifetime. Finding the best value all starts with a call to Choice Entertainment. Read less

While Choice Entertainment is a great group to work with, I would like to give a special shoutout to Alan Boyle. He is a top notch DJ that works with Choice. He was the music from start to finish for us on the big day and I was blow away by his performance. Everything was perfect! When booking your next DJ, I HIGHLY recommend Alan Boyle! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

It can't get better than this, one company that can meet so many of your wedding day must haves and provide the best of the best of services.... That was Choice Entertainment for us! They helped us with getting our amazing DJ (Eric Cunningham), Photo Booth and lighting for our wedding at The Boathouse at Sunday Park. Bill Gilliam was amazing to work with, super friendly and willing to work with you to provide the best and make sure your vision comes alive. Super responsive to my every email, worked with us to provide our desired template for photo booth pics .... You want it, he will work to make it happen.

The Photo Booth service was great! The quality of the pictures, fun props and nice looking (elegant) booth.

Our DJ, Eric Cunningham was more than just a DJ. Met with us twice before the wedding and worked with us to provide the different types of music we asked for. He also moved the wedding timeline along smoothly as MC. We are really lucky to have found him for our wedding!

The lighting is a must have. Choice Entertainment was able to provide top quality wireless lighting for a great price... Really set the mood!

I highly recommend them.... Our wedding was spectacular and Choice Entertainment was part of making that happen. Thank you so much for your services!

Choice Entertainment was a preferred vendor of The Mill at Fine Creek and we were directed to try and get Eric Cunningham if at all possible. My mother did most of the initial contact with Eric and I met him in person at The Mill's tasting night to get a feel for who he was and if he was ready for a Star Wars wedding - turns out he's a big Star Wars fan himself and was pretty excited to be a part of my day. The forms Choice Entertainment uses to get an idea of what you would like played for certain points of your reception (and ceremony if you use them too) was very helpful in making sure all the bases were covered. We spoke on the phone closer to the date to hash out some more details and make sure he had all the information we needed. Good thing he was a fan of Star Wars, since we had a lot of songs and he was able to have them played. He even got "Everything is Awesome" from The LEGO Movie for us as well as our entrance music to the reception! We had a lot of fun with Eric and he definitely lived up to the high recommendations.

Eric Cunningham did an AMAZING job at my wedding! Everyone danced ALL NIGHT LONG - even my husband! We wanted to extend the event because we were all having so much fun! My sister had Eric as her DJ at her wedding - so I knew I wanted him from the very beginning of our wedding planning. Eric was already booked on one of the dates we were considering, so we went with the date that Eric was available on - so glad we did this! He is the best!

Eric Cunningham provided DJ services for my (2nd) daughter's wedding, so I've been down this road before. Eric is the "best of the best." 11 on a scale of 1-10. Eric greatly exceeded all of my expectations. He is extremely professional, personable, and very easy to work with. His flexibility and exemplary responsiveness really saved the day, when a last minute cancellation by a "friend of the family" musician left us with no music for the wedding ceremony. Eric was already scheduled to provide DJ services for the reception, at a separate location, but in the 11th hour, he gladly agreed to set up additional sound equipment at the wedding ceremony site. Eric has over 30 years in the business. All we had to do was provide some song selections to give him a sense of our favorite genres and he did the rest to ensure all genres were covered, but also providing an exceptional balance and transition to the music. He's a pro!

We attended a "Meet The DJ" night and immediately hired Hunter Omohundro through Choice Entertainment. Hunter was everything we wanted in a DJ and more! He was easy to work with beforehand and was flexible with requests during the reception. His music selections were a perfect blend of what the young people wanted, and what the older folks could relate to. Everyone was happy! His Master of Ceremonies presentation was flawless. He was never "in our faces," but was enough of a presence to get the guests' attention for announcements and encouragement to participate. Hunter presents himself professionally, is well dressed, and his demeanor is never condescending. He is a true professional and was a pleasure to have at the wedding. I would be more than happy to give a personal reference (through Choice Entertainment) to anyone considering Hunter's services.

We were recommended to get Choice Entertainment by our wedding vendor at The Homestead (awesome venue!) and were really pleased with the service. Our DJ, Wayne Smith, played a nice mix of Country for Emily and her friends, as well as rock, and pop and other fun stuff to make sure people stayed on the floor. He was also our master of ceremonies, and was able to get people to where they needed to be.

The other major value for us was that Wayne was also our lighting tech, supplying cordless LED lights to all of our locations in the Homestead, the wedding, the ceremony and the reception. Getting all of those services combined is what really sold us on Choice Entertainment.

I'd definitely recommend them to friends who are getting married in the area

We had an absolute blast at our reception and Choice Entertainment and DJ Rick are a big reason why!

We did not have to worry about a thing - just enjoyed ourselves and had a ball. Our DJ, Rick Pfamatter, was a huge help and a lot of fun. He really got to know us as a couple and tailored the event to reflect our personalities and vision. He even helped us come up with a timeline for the evening and special events to include (anniversary dance, garter/bouquet toss with a funny twist, newlywed game, telling our engagement story, etc) to make sure the event ran smoothly and our guests had a great time. It was a huge weight off our shoulders to not have to worry about a thing! Not to mention - we gave Choice and Rick a tight timeline. We booked only about 4 weeks or so before our event. Despite the limited time we gave them, Choice still delivered exceptionally well!

Our guests all had a great time and several even commented what a great DJ we chose because of his charisma, energy, and fun attitude!

Our reception was just what we wanted and we owe a huge thanks to Choice Entertainment!
Highly recommend!!

She kept the event on schedule and the games she led kept the teens engaged and entertained. We received so many complements from our guests from teens to grandparents. It can be hard to keep teens engaged and off their phones. Christy and Rick did just that! Christy was a delight to work with from the first contact and provided many great suggestions. She and Rick were very interested in understanding what we wanted and they delivered. We would definitely recommend the two of them for a special event.

Christy and Rick were a fantastic team! Christy spent a lot of time emailing, talking on the phone, and skyping with us to determine exactly what we wanted for our wedding. She went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied and made the evening extremely special. The evening went so smoothly because of Christy and Rick. Everybody from 7 to 70 years old enjoyed dancing to the music, and we even had wedding crashers come join the party! The uplighting was pricey, but definitely worth it! We highly recommend choosing Christy and Rick for your DJs!

Christy DJ'd our wedding in the Spring and she was a pleasure to work with in so many ways. We had not set our date until about a month before the wedding and she was so great about keeping us on track and making sure we got everything we wanted. She set up an excellent timeline for the night and let us know things that work and don’t work so well. Christy even recommended games and even did a song montage for us. We truly had a wonderful wedding in big party thanks to Christy. She worked with us on our must haves and helped fill in the parts we were unsure of.

Would 100% recommend for wedding or special events.

Thank you,

We chose Eric Cunningham from Choice Entertainment for our wedding and couldn't have done better. What really struck us was how stressed we were during the weeks before our wedding and how Eric made the song choices and the timeline effortless. He gave us ideas and proposed songs for the different events during the wedding. The whole process was very smooth and then the actual reception was stress free and amazing. He blended the music to get everyone dancing and having a fun time. He even helped with a song dedication to the bride to make the evening more special. I would definitely recommend him or Choice Entertainment to anyone looking for a great DJ!

Rick Ripley DJ’ed my daughter’s wedding in January of 2013. I could not have chosen anyone better to host this special event. Rick was very organized, and the entire event went off without a hitch! Prior to the event, my daughter and I met with him and went over the details of how the evening would progress, and he made a number of excellent suggestions which we adapted along with our own requests. Rick had the whole evening scheduled, from the background music as the first guests trickled in, to the last dance and closure of the event. He incorporated all of our requested favorite songs. He has at his disposal many useful handouts and music choice lists as well. The entire evening was fun and enjoyable, and I have to attribute this to Rick. He had everything under control, and because of that, we were able to enjoy ourselves at the reception. I received many compliments and inquiries about him from many guests afterwards. Rick is a asset to Choice Entertainment. I will definately use him in the future!

DJ Hunter was the best!!!!! I highly recommend this company and suggest that you go to one of their "Meet the DJ Nights". It's totally free! There are vendors there displaying cakes, food, and flowers and you get the chance to see all the DJ's they have to offer in action so that you can see whom you connect with and whom has your style. It was really great and I am glad we went. Hunter was a fantastic DJ, he made the reception flow with ease, knew all the questions to ask, knew our style and played the best music. He was such a good DJ, my dad paid him to stay longer because no one was done dancing!!!! Choose Choice Entertainment and DJ Hunter Omohundro!!!!!

The DJ was one of the harder vendors for us. We were recommended to a few that more so told us what we wanted than tried to figure out what we wanted. Choice Entertainment, won us over because the first question he asked was not about the wedding it was about us, the bride and groom, they made a point to get to know us. That makes a world of difference in a stressed out brides life! Our DJ was Mike Dickey and he did an amazing job! He really got to know us and what we liked what we didn't like in regards to the music. Also they had a night called meet the DJ night which was awesome too! It really gives you a good outlook on what the wedding line up will look like & gives you a chance to figure out what DJ and personality you like!

Eric Cunningham was our DJ. He was very easy to work with - flexible in the planning process and with our meetings. Our guests commented how much they enjoyed the music - especially the variety. As my husband and I are very in to music, we were very specific about the music we wanted to play. I think this helps manages expectations. I would suggest coordinating with your DJ early. I waited until the last minute and some songs I would have included on the "do not play list" were played at the reception.

We couldn't be more thrilled about our choice of DJ - Bill Gilliam is the BEST! We initially decided on DJ vs. band because our families are very international and we wanted to have a good mix of music to appeal to all cultures. When we met with Bill initially, he was so excited to hear about the international factor and even said he loves to learn some new words in different languages to use at weddings. Bill was so professional and one of the nicest people I have ever worked with. He really understood what we wanted to achieve with the music and knew how important the music and his MC'ing would be to our wedding. We worked very well together throughout the planning process and Bill always made sure that I was happy with whatever direction we were going with. He was extremely responsive, always answering emails quickly or returning phone calls. Bill made our evening unforgettable. The music was great, but more importantly, he really brought our reception to life. We had a fantastic intro of the bridal party where Bill said little tid-bits about each person and then he created a "love story" before introducing us, the newly weds! It was just such a nice touch! Bill really made our wedding unforgettable and everyone we talk to is telling us how much they loved our DJ! Also - Bill had awesome lights that he brought and placed all over the room that made it so fun and lively! Bill and Choice Entertainment are phenomenal!

He met with my fiancee and I privately and in person, discussed every step of the reception, and was open to different ideas that my fiancee and I had. He was a very professional yet down to earth person and most of all he was an absolutely fantastic DJ at our wedding. The dance floor was packed during the entire reception and we have heard nothing but great things from our guests about the party that Bill put on. I will use Bill and Choice Entertainment in the future and I would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to have a great time at their reception!!

After our original wedding in North Carolina was cancelled by Hurricane Irene, Choice Entertainment and DJ Eric Cunningham was willing and ready to help us out and DJ our replacement wedding at the Westin Richmond on incredibly short notice (24 hours!). Eric Cunningham was wonderful; the reception was a ton of fun and he accommodated all our music requests! The reception was a party like we had hoped and we were so glad people were dancing and having a great time the whole time!

After our original wedding in North Carolina was cancelled by Hurricane Irene, Choice Entertainment and DJ Eric Cunningham was willing and ready to help us out and DJ our replacement wedding at the Westin Richmond on incredibly short notice (24 hours!). Eric Cunningham was wonderful; the reception was a ton of fun and he accommodated all our music requests! The reception was a party like we had hoped and we were so glad people were dancing and having a great time the whole time! Choice Entertainment couldn't have been nicer in helping us out and Eric was wonderful! Thank you Choice Entertainment! Read less

Dwayne at Choice did such a fantastic job. He was completely professional and never pushy throughout the reception. He was polite and had great manners. Choice entertainment is an extremely organized company and I felt good knowing I was going through such a professional organization. THey gave us a planning sheet that we filled out to lay out the evening schedule with the associated music. It was incredibly helpful.

We had DJ Mike Beene for our wedding reception through Choice Entertainment and he was absolutely AMAZING!! He helped us come up with ideas to make our reception fun and unique. Because of Mike, everything ran so smoothly from beginning to end. Everyone had so much fun that we had him stay for an extra hour! We got many compliments from the guests about Mike and will definitely be using him for all of our future DJ’ing needs :)

Bill Gilliam provided our wedding ceremony music and DJ services at the reception. He is a big part of why our wedding was PERFECT. I chose Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" to walk down the aisle to, and the timing for when the bridesmaids enter, then when I, the bride, would walk down the aisle, was very tricky. Bill made it work perfectly, ready to make any adjustments at a moment's notice. Bill had great input and ideas for making our day personal and intimate for all guests, not just another cookie-cutter wedding. He is so easy to work with, and got EVERYONE on the dance floor.

Bill Gilliam with Choice Entertainment made our wedding day fantastic! We met him at a Meet the DJ Night sponsored by Choice Entertainment, and we got to hear samples of about 8 or 9 DJs from Choice Entertainment. We knew that Bill would be the best fit for our wedding because of his ability to be fun yet professional. Bill ended up providing the music for our ceremony and reception. We knew that he did a fantastic job with receptions because we had seen him in action at another wedding. But when we met with him 2 weeks before the wedding, he was able to recommend the most perfect music for our ceremony. We wanted something different, yet classic. He made the perfect suggestions. We would recommend Bill and Choice Entertainment for any event, especially weddings!

I can't say enough good things about Choice Entertainment and their owner, Bill Gilliam. My husband and I went to a "Meet the DJ Night" at the Marriott on West Broad Street that was hosted by Choice Entertainment. Choice Entertainment probably has about 15-20 DJs and they put on a "mock wedding" and showcased how their DJs presented themselves in a real wedding setting. Bill stood out to us right away as one of the best – little did we know he was actually the owner! Bill met with us for over 2 hours a few weeks before the wedding to get everything straight in terms of his emcee-ing responsibilities and what kind of music we wanted played. On our wedding day, he couldn't have done a better job! Everyone was commenting on how great the music was and some people even asked if they could get the playlist he played! He was a great emcee as well and very professional. I would recommend him and Choice Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ!

We had a large group going through a buffet line, and he did a SUPER job of entertaining those at the table until it was their turn! He also was great with working with us to layout the flow of the evening just like we wanted - and ensure the music was our choice as well. I would highly recommend Steve, and Choice Entertainment!

As the wedding came closer, things came up and the schedule needed to be adjusted. But instead of being frazzled by the changes, it was like he knew they were coming and seamlessly adjusted.

In addition he was so funny and helpful with all of our song choices. Choice Entertainment is worth every penny!

He played music during the cocktail hour and also DJ'd our wedding. During our initial meeting he offered his professional opinion regarding what would work best regarding our order of events- and wedding entrance. He worked well with the vendors (ex- photographer, wedding coordinator). He played a variety of music and the music wasn't too loud.

We booked Alan Boyle for our reception, and he was the professional that we knew he would be. He played all of the songs that we requested. He managed to incorporate our favorite artists. He played songs that we loved but would never have thought to select. Throughout the evening, guests -- younger ones and not-as-young ones -- remarked, "This music is great!" He kept everyone dancing -- we had a blast and so did our guests. I think that he truly distinguished himself from other DJs in that his presence went largely unnoticed throughout the evening, and we mean that in the best possible way: he did not have to speak very often, because his preparation and musical selections spoke for him. We are so happy that we chose him.

We recently booked Lew Wright as our DJ for our wedding reception and he was a hit! Many people asked what company he was representing and also went as far to say that he was the best DJ they had ever heard! Lew was very professional, flexible, and relaxed. He made good suggestions for special dance songs, and announced all the events (cake cutting, toasts, garder toss, first dance, etc) for us. He also made sure that everyone was aware of our send-off. He personally got everyone outside to get the bubble blowing started and then had us come out! Lew made our night special and we would recommend him, and Choice Entertainment, to our family and friends hands down!

Choice is amazing. I had a DJ booked up until three days before the wedding, when he canceled on me. I called Bill at 9:00 the next morning, and he had me set up with DJ Jimmy Steele by noon.

Jimmy did a fantastic job with the frantic and last minute requests of my wife and I. He made what ended up being an off the cuff order of events look like it was something we had been planning for months. Jimmy's experience allowed us to make one suggestion (let's do the toast now) and he had the music, announcement, etc. ready to go. No one had any idea we had to switch DJ's at the last minute.

In summary, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Choice, and Jimmy Steele to anyone planning a wedding or any sort of event. Their quick response and ability to anticipate our needs turned a potential negative into a huge positive for our event.

My wife and I were a little concerned about the guests that we would have at our wedding (slightly older, conservative crowd mixed with wild college buddies - potential nightmare) Bill did a fantastic job of setting our minds at ease when he took the time to sit down with us and in great detail plan out the evening music. He did an amazing job of getting everyone out on the dance floor - from Grandpa to little nieces and nephews (the college buddies needed little encouragement :-)
The night went wonderfully because of Bill's expertise and eye for detail. We highly reccommend him with absolutely no reservations. Thanks again Bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!

While we were a huge part of the decesion/planning process, Bill had the professional experience to offer and guided us through the entire process. We couldn't be happier w/ the job he did. What a dance party--old & young, all night long. Great value & an amazing time.

We were highly satisfied and impressed with DJ Jimmy Steele from Choice Entertainment. Jimmy was very friendly and professional when we met with him to discuss the reception; he was prompt in all of his communications, and I knew that he would help make our special day an event we'll always remember. Jimmy made sure to play our top songs at the wedding reception, as well as special music for an "anniversary dance," the cake cutting, the bouquet and garter toss, etc. So many of our friends and family commented on the great music selection we had, and Jimmy deserves all the praise! He even burned us a cd with some songs from the reception, which I thought was very touching. We would definitely recommend Jimmy, along with Choice Entertainment, to anyone looking for music for a special occasion!

Jimmy made sure to play our top songs at the wedding reception, as well as special music for an "anniversary dance," the cake cutting, the bouquet and garter toss, etc. So many of our friends and family commented on the great music selection we had, and Jimmy deserves all the praise! He even burned us a cd with some songs from the reception, which I thought was very touching. We would definitely recommend Jimmy, along with Choice Entertainment, to anyone looking for music for a special occasion! Read less

The most raved about thing from my wedding has been the DJ. Bill did an amazing job making the reception fun for everyone, from young to old. The dance floor was always hopping and Bill kept thing moving and was the perfect master of ceremonies.

We chose Choice Entertainment for our after wedding party here in Richmond. We got married in Nov. in PA and we wanted to have a party for our friends/family down here in VA. Bill Gilliam was amazing!! He met with us prior to the event and he was able to completely turn our night into a fabulous party. He played different types of music to meet all ages at the party. People throughout the night and even afterwards have come to me stating he was the best DJ they have ever seen. I would recommend Choice Entertainment to anyone!!!!

I have nothing but positive feedback for Choice Entertainment. We were fortunate enough to be referred to them earlier on in the process. Bill Gillam provided the DJ services for our reception and it was nothing less than outstanding. Since the wedding, our guests have commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how much fun they had at the reception. We are in our 30s so many of our friends have been to several weddings. One guest commented specifically on the DJ and how the music selection and the timing of everything kept the party going. Bill did an excellent job in playing the right things at the right time. He obviously fed off of the crowd very well and made sure that the party was a great one! We also contacted Bill to locate string musicians for our ceremony. When we met with Loretta Carreras, she was professional, she listened to what we wanted, and she and her partner's music was beautiful. Looking back, I believe we only had to meet with Bill two times and once was our initial meeting to determine whether we wanted to go with Choice Entertainment for our wedding. We only met with Loretta once and followed up with her on our music selections. The bottom line is that Choice Entertainment listened to us and understood what we wanted and even made excellent recommendations for some special touches! They worked with our wedding coordinator to make sure everything went off without a hitch and it absolutely did! I highly recommend Bill Gillam of Choice Entertainment. He is professional, responsive, and did more than his part to make our day perfect!

My best friend's wedding was the most fun we had had at a wedding before. This was largely due to the fact that their DJ was Howard Harper from Choice Entertainment. I knew he was who I wanted for my own wedding. Right when we got engaged the first vendor we checked off our list was Choice Entertainment. We knew they provided excellent services. To us our guests having fun was the most important aspect of our wedding. Our photographs are definite proof that everyone had a blast. I had several people comment on how fun it was and how good the music was. Howard was extremely warm and friendly; he met with us for a few hours to get to know us better so he could prepare the songs we wanted so our reception would reflect us. He was very knowledgeable in any field of music. He did not have our last dance song so he even purchased that especially for us. Then he made us a CD after the wedding of the songs he played. It is such a special keepsake.

Eric Cunningham at Choice Entertainment was so amazing to work with! He was so flexible with song selection and easy to get a hold of! I was hoping a friend of mine could do my ceremony music, but we weren't going to know his schedule until a couple weeks before, and Eric was on standby and when we found out my friend couldn't make it Eric jumped in and came up with a list of ceremony songs a week before! It was flawless, everything was wonderful and he is so sweet! Choice is the best in the area and I would recommend it to anyone!

Alan Boyle was our DJ from Choice Entertainment. I would recommend him over and over to anyone. He was truly fantastic by making everything so easy. He was able to give great suggestions. He did the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We came up with our plan and he followed it perfect! I heard every song that we gave him! I didn't leave the dance floor! He even went as far as calling me a few times prior to the wedding to make sure I was ok, since it was supposed to be a hurricane the day of our wedding! I can not say enough good things about how Alan made our day! The cost was worth every dollar :)

We used DJ Alan Boyle with Choice Entertainment. We found the company through an internet search and called Alan first because his name was first on the list. After one conversation with him, I just felt he would be perfect. Alan is from England (as is a lot of my family), so his accent definitely helped. :) He is wonderfully helpful. He gathers a list of your "must play" and "must not play" songs at least one month before the event and anything he does not have, he will happily download prior to the event. My husband and I wanted to feature our own mix of music during the dinner hour, so Alan played a CD that we mixed on our own. When the dinner hour ran over, he smoothly transitioned to music that was of a similar style so as not to take away from our own choice of music. We asked him not to be one of those "MC" types that yells at and interacts with the crowd, and he completely followed our request. I was very particular about my "must not play" list, and Alan even went so far as to deny a request my friend made at the wedding because he thought my husband and I might not approve! He was dressed professionally in a tuxedo and did a wonderful job. So wonderful, in fact, that our friends have booked him already for their wedding in July. :)

We went through Choice Entertainment and found Lew Wright, our wedding DJ. My husband and I were very specific on our wedding songs. We had a list of what we wanted palyed when the guest were being seated, then one song for when the parents were being seated, another for when our little girls walked/danced down the aisle (Accidentally in Love "Shrek Song"), one for when I walked down the aisle (Dont Want to Miss a Thing, Aerosmith) and STAYING ALIVE to STRUT back down the aisle as a family when we were pronouced man and wife! Lew never missed a beat! During dinner he replayed the slower songs I had missed when the guest were being seated for the wedding. Then when it was time to "party" we all had a BLAST! From Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Prince, Def Leppard to Tim McGraw....he knew what we liked and made sure there was not a dull moment. We even had a small list of do not play songs! I had many people say after the wedding it was the most fun they have had at a wedding!

They sent their best DJ (would ask for Eric Cunningham), who did our ceremony, cocktail, and reception. He was not too overbearing or cheesy, as some DJ's can be. He's got a great personality and very easy to work with. He even got my conservative 85-year-old grandmother on the dance floor! He was excellent!

He was wonderful and pleasant to work with and he spent extra time preparing since we were at a new venue, to make sure the ceremony and reception went off without any problems. It was a perfect evening! Bill Gilliam was wonderful to work with in arranging having a DJ and photo booth at our wedding and everyone was professional and fun to work with. Highly recommend!

Rick Ripley was our DJ from Choice Entertainment, and he did a fabulous job at our wedding! He was a great communicator before the wedding, making sure he had all the details covered before the big day. He was a great announcer--upbeat without being annoying and never mispronouncing our difficult names. We wanted a set list of Motown/'60s music, and while Rick was initially hesitant to only play one type of music, he followed our wishes at our reception. He played some amazing songs that had everyone dancing, from our 3-year-old nephew to our 25-year-old friends to our 55-year-old aunties! The last two weddings I attended had horrible DJs that left the dance floor empty. Thanks to Choice Entertainment and Rick Ripley, that wasn't the case at our wedding!

I planned my wedding long distance, and so the majority of my communication with my DJ happened over the phone or by email. Sometimes it was a little difficult to get our schedules in sync for a phone meeting, but once we got on the phone and started hammering out the details, the process was great! We had already chosen the majority of the songs we wanted, and so when we started talking with Eric Jaundoo, I told him the basic feel we were going for and sent him our tentative playlist and he took it from there! Eric payed special attention to working in our family traditions and I really appreciated the effort. He played everything that was important to us and took the "silly" things that we wanted and worked them into the mix seamlessly! He didn't rush us throughout the night, but definitely kept the party going and I would recommend him!

Bill Gilliam was awesome and he kept the energy of the crowd up and eager from the first dance to the last. We actually even got a lot of comments from the good choices of dinner music. At one point there was 75% of the people on the dance floor, and there was always a crowd having fun.

Choice Entertainment provided our photobooth. It was a huge hit. They had a bunch of great props that everyone enjoyed. We were able to customize our photos. (whether it be a strip of pictures or a collage of sorts on a 4X6) Our guests were able to take the pictures home as well as put one in a scrapbook for us. We were also given a flash drive with all the pictures at the end of the night.

Eric did a fantastic job for our September 7th wedding. He was easy to work with which meant a lot, especially in the few weeks leading up to the wedding. We appreciated his creative ideas about how to make our reception special and unique. It was really nice the day of the wedding to not have to worry about any of the music, toasts, etc. He was great about keeping the evening flowing the right way and definitely didn't give our event a cheesy feel. If you are going to go the DJ route Eric is your man!!

We loved working with Howard Harper! He had almost everyone at our wedding dancing the entire night. We were all so sad when the last song of the night came on. He was a little bit hard to get in touch with but I think it was because we got married during peak season. He made sure everything went very smoothly and we were so happy to have him!

We absolutley loved DJ Hunter of Choice Entertainment. He did a fantastic job and met all of our needs. Many of our guests raved about how wonderful he was and how he kept the party going! I spent a little more than I wanted to, but I would say that it was worth it. DJ Hunter was easier to reach via cell phone than email, but still pretty responsive. If you are looking for a laid back DJ, with a wonderful personality, who loves his job... this is the DJ for you!!

We booked Bill Gilliam through Choice Entertainment for our March wedding. He was very thoughtful to include my then-fiance - who lives in TN - in the planning. We held a conference call with Bill, so he could be sure to have input. Bill also went so far as to contact our venue, caterer, and photographer to make sure that everyone was on the same page (timing-wise). As our DJ, Bill did a fantastic job reading the crowd during our wedding reception, which made for a very fun time for all! Most of our guests wanted to keep the party going after our contract was up! The only glitch came with the timing of our first dance. There was a little confusion after our introduction, but Bill quickly corrected his mistake and apologized several times. Overall, my husband and I would highly recommend working with Choice and Bill Gilliam specifically.

We used Eric C.- he was wonderful to work with and provided a mic for our officiant and worked the soundboard during the ceremony without any additional fee. We met beforehand and went over the reception in detail. I felt like 75% of his choices were dead on and perfect for us, but the other 25% were total misses. Everyone danced and it was a great party, so a success in my mind.

We had Jimmy Steele who was great. He uses email, phone, and texts even to communicate. He visited with us 3 times before the wedding to get to know us, our music preferences, etc.. He visited the venue early to look at what equipment he would need, etc.. The only problem I had is that he did not always play the songs people requested even though we had talked to him before about letting guests request songs. Also, he kind of stumbled over his words when introducing us...but I guess everyone makes mistakes :-)

Really enjoyed meeting all the DJs. Choice Entertainment has very qualified DJs. I would rank our DJ, Hunter Omohundro an absolute 5+ He was great to work with and very professional.

I ranked Choice Entertainment lower on responsiveness and professionalism because I also tried to get a harpist through them and they kept saying they would get back with me and never did.

We used Choice Entertainment and chose Rick Ripley to be our DJ. He was a nice man who listened to everything we had to say about what we expected on our wedding day. He kind of took control at the wedding, which was a little more than I was looking for. I wanted more of a fun atmosphere, very relaxed. He did play everything we asked for, which was a healthy mix for all the ages that came to the wedding. Overall, a nice addition to our vendors.
