We used Howie from Colonial DJs for our ceremony, cocktail reception, and main reception. I could not have been happier with his service. He communicated well with us prior to our day to ensure he knew what our needs were. He was at the venue early and had everything set up and ready.

Howie does a great job of reading the crowd and kept the dance floor packed all night. We had several compliments that it was the best/ most fun wedding any of them had attended.

I would highly recommend Howie.

A.C. Walker was the very best DJ we could have hoped for. He was very professional, fun, friendly, and engaging with our guests. He actually got out on the dance floor to teach the line dances to those who didn't know them. They LOVED that! He made our day so special and a lot of fun. He incorporated everything we asked for into the music list and had some great suggestions also. I highly recommend him for your next wedding or party. Thank you, A.C.Walker!

Chris did an amazing job at our wedding at Kingsmill Resort! We had a client survey and son selection sent to us months before the wedding and my husband really liked picking out songs and I enjoyed giving details of our day on the survey. When it came reception time, Chris played an amazing variety of music that appealed to all age groups and kept the dance floor packed which was our main request!

Working with Colonial DJs was such a wonderful experience! We worked with Howard to create a memorable reception, and that is exactly what he delivered. Everything about working with Colonial DJ was simple and professional -- requests were promptly answered and the service was absolutely top-notch. My husband was away in training during the majority of our engagement, and Howard made sure that I had nothing to worry about in his absence! When the big day arrived, we simply let him run the show. We would recommend Colonial DJ to any bride and groom in the Hampton Roads area. They are pros and truly care about making each event special.

He was professional and friendly, and he made everyone feel very comfortable. It was clear that his top priority was to make the evening everything we wanted. We would highly recommend him to others!

We hired these guys and were extremely pleased with their service. They adhered to our wishes and have a pretty slick web interface that allows you to request songs and also place songs on a do not play list. The guests commented that the DJ was awesome and he served as an excellent Emcee. Colonial Djs was also very reasonable for their rates for what they provided and we plan on recommending them in the future.

Colonial DJ Jeff Bristow was our entertainer for my daughters Wedding & reception 5 days ago. He was professional from the first meeting to the last. He was accommodating in every way! He came at 1:30 to set up for a 3:00 Wedding since there were several areas at CherryGrove Plantation Suffolk, Va. that music had to be set up to air to! He was the one who directed and responded to all aspects of the day into night. He packed up well after 11:00 and was there while I was cleaning up! He was awesome! He showed no sign of exhaustion regardless of the hours and gave it all over 125%. Thanks so much Jeff!

DJ Howie was absolutely outstanding! He met with us multiple times leading up to our wedding day to ensure our ceremony and reception fit our musical tastes and was planned down to the minute. He was great about listening to our requests (and actually playing them!), timing the music for the ceremony, creating a timeline for the reception, and kept everyone dancing the whole reception. They were an affordable group with great packages and added lighting. I recommend Colonial DJs to any bride working within a set budget. They were amazing!

I can't not say enough about DJ Howie and Colonial DJs. My now husband and I met with Howie before the wedding and made a complete timeline for the wedding day. He had so many great ideas and they are true professionals. He was very outgoing and knew the exact songs to play to keep the energy up. I think that a DJ can make or break your event and Howie completely MADE my day better.

Howard was by far one of the best vendors I worked with throughout planning the wedding and on our wedding day. I planned our wedding living out of town from Virginia Beach but after speaking with him through email and finally meeting with him he was the best choice. He was very patient, understanding and flexible. Not only did he dj our reception but played all of our ceremony music. He participated along with everyone throughout the event. I have recommended to him to any and everyone I know in the Hampton Roads area and will keep him in mind whenever we have any events in the future. Phenomenal DJ and person to work with. He was the least stressful part about planning my wedding and I would not change a thing.

He met with us several times and really got to know what we were looking for. He was prompt, professional, and had a positive attitude. I heard the company was breaking up, so if you can't work with Howard Alexander through Tidewater DJs, go find him!

Working with Howie was amazing! We received SO many compliments on our DJ and his music selection was perfect. The pricing was also very reasonable. He met with us several times and really got to know what we were looking for. He was prompt, professional, and had a positive attitude. I heard the company was breaking up, so if you can't work with Howard Alexander through Tidewater DJs, go find him! Read less

We had DJ Howie. He was very professional and very easy to work with. He definitely wanted to make sure we were happy with what we got. He even set up early and didn't charge us for his extra time. He really tried to keep the party the going.

Chris was great! He played all of the songs we requested, and was able to read the crowd very well. We wanted a DJ who was not very vocal and let the party flow without too much narration. It took a bit of reminding at the beginning of the night, as I think most couples want a more interactive experience, but Chris responded to our requests.

Howard at Colonial DJ's was absolutely great. He answered my questions, presented pricing and options clearly, and could not have been any better as my Colonial DJ's contact. The DJ Terry, however, was less than stellar. My reception was the simplest it could possibly be...no interactive games or songs, no bride/groom intro, no bouquet toss, etc. I also provided him with an extensive list of songs I would like played to relieve him of almost all "guessing." There were many, many times throughout the reception when people were on the dance floor and there was an awkward pause between songs as he figured out the next song to play (from a list I provided). There were times he would leave his DJ booth for longer than 5-10 minutes, times when I needed him to stop the music because a relative wanted to give a speech. He seemed to think that because my reception was so 'easy,' he didn't need to put in much effort. I would recommend this vendor as a whole, but unfortunately not the DJ. They do have others to choose from. The other huge perk is the pricing, which was highly competitive. So this may be a 'you get what you pay for' situation. Again...vendor, YES, my DJ, no.

Colonial DJs responded with the following comments:

I reached out to our client to get a better understanding of her concerns before I spoke with our DJ, Terry. Yes, Terry did confirm that he went to his vehicle during dinner to get fresh batteries for the wireless mic knowing that toasts and speeches were upcoming. And, yes, 1 song ended while he was cueing another request. The client did tell me that both she and her guests had a great time dancing but the pause between the 2 songs was noticed. We sincerely apologize for that mistake. We truly appreciate your business, as well as the gratuity given to Terry.
