We had such a great experience working with Dan and Crestline. All we wanted was to have our guests dancing all night at the reception, and Dan kept the dance floor packed! He also did a great job of introducing our bridal party and running the bouquet and garter toss. I'd recommend Crestline to any couples who want to have a fun reception.

Crestline, specifically Jay, has provided DJing service for my sister, a family friend, and now me and hasn't let us down yet. The dance floor for my 8/1/14 wedding was filled all night. Jay had just the right involvement during the reception, kept things moving, followed through with everything we asked, and could not have had better communication with us throughout the whole process. He showed flexibility with a last minute change and showed that he was a true professional who has definitely done this before. I am grateful to have had him DJ for us and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants someone who will listen to them and keep the dance floor full all night :)

DJ Jay was perfect for our wedding. He gives you complete freedom over the music you want to hear for your special day and even lets you decide how much mc-ing you would like him to do. Not only did he actively seek out music that was not in his collection for us but he seamlessly streamed it together with more "classic" wedding music to keep our dance floor active the entire night, despite our having a rather small group. My wife and I highly recommend him for his cooperation as well as obvious experience when it comes to providing music for weddings.

The music was perfect at the wedding! Both Jay and his assistant were very attentive to the bride and groom's wishes throughout the night and made sure to check in several times. They were easy to communicate with and kept people on the dance floor all night! Several people commented on how good the music was and requested the playlist (which Crestline provided!). We were very happy with our DJ and we had a great time dancing the night away!

SImply put, Jay is awesome.

We started wedding planning far before our date. We contacted Jay about DJ services after meeting him at our venue's open house. He offered to meet us at a coffee shop near our apartment in the city to talk about Crestline's services. His presentation impressed us: He showed videos of how he and his other DJs handle a reception, he showed us how he DJs receptions based on how much DJ involvement is necessary to get the party going, he walked us through the song request system, and he discussed how the flow of the day would go based on the venue (with which he was familiar) and our needs for the night.

His contact throughout the process was always prompt, cordial, and helpful, leading right up to the day before the wedding.

The day of the wedding, he was set up even before the wedding party arrived at the venue, and the sound equipment was dead on for the trio we had playing during the ceremony. During the cocktail hour he was able to transfer his setup to the reception area on time and without intrusion, but was always nonetheless available if we had a question the night of.

The thing that impressed us the most was how he made the reception personalized as he went. Our wedding guests came from the South, the Northeast, and Chicago, a fact that Jay wouldn't have known until the groom's godfather's speech at the end of the cocktail hour. Despite being busy in finishing his setup, Jay was attentive enough to hear this and later in the night addressed everyone's home with different songs for them. This was a little touch that the guests loved and really, really, impressed us as clients.

In short, Jay is the consummate professional, and Crestline is the first thing we will recommend whenever friends say they are getting married.

Jay was our DJ and his assistant was Jeff. I can say with all honesty we had a great time with them. They were funny and helped really keep the night flowing. Not only did they make our day special and easy, but they also made the time leading up to the event easy. Jay called me immediately after I put in an information request. He worked with me on the price since we are just starting out and paid for our wedding ourselves. I can say I would be happy to recommend them to anyone.

I am very happy with Jay and his performance. I had a short reception as it was Sunday night but my party turned out pretty good, the morning after I got compliments from friends and family that I did a good job on picking out the DJ for my wedding. Jay is real nice and very flexible, a good problem solver and helper with a nice and kind personality, even my husband said that he seems to love and is very good with what's he doing. If you're looking for a DJ for your wedding, you wouldn't go wrong with Jay, Crestline!

Jay did a great Job at my sisters wedding last weekend. He played all the songs we requested, and did a great job adding in his own choices to the mix to keep the party (and the dancing) going. We liked him so much we are planning on using him for our next upcoming family wedding. Thank you so much!

We met with a few other DJs before we chose Jay to DJ our wedding. During our first meeting he awed us with his portfolio because it showed us that he cares about his customers. He is very open and versatile to his customer's requests. He also has state of the art audio and lighting equipment. Jay has a vast selection of songs, and we were able to choose the ones we liked the most for our wedding.

The most memorable thing Jay did was for my husband. My husband chose a song to dedicate to me after our first dance. The two met and worked in secrecy and surprised me during our reception.
I remember it vividly to this day.

Jay did a great job MC'ing too. Jay introduced our parents, wedding party, bouquet and garter tosses, and all the dances we selected. We received a lot of positive compliments from our guests about Jay's etiquette and style. We recommend Jay of Crestline Entertainment to anyone wishing to have a memorable wedding reception.

Jay is very accommodating and flexible with your requests. He's also very professional. I didn't want a DJ who made the show all about himself... he didn't try to take on the spot light but instead made sure the night was about us!

My fiancé and I chose Crestline Entertainment after Jay performed at my sister's wedding last October. We chose Jay because he was a fantastic DJ. He really loves music and knows how to play songs that keep guests entertained and on their feet. Jay provided the music for our ceremony and reception. Every song flowed seamlessly. He was even great at introducing the bridal party and transitioning to speeches. I've already received so many compliments from his performance at our wedding and know he handed our quite a few cards to our guests. He's very professional and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Thanks for a wonderful experience Jay!

Jay was extremely flexible and accommodating in our planning process. During the wedding he kept everyone engaged and the dance floor was never empty.

I just cannot say enough good things about Jay and Crestline Entertainment. When I was initially searching for DJs for our wedding, I found Crestline from the vendor tool. I called and talked to Jay, the owner, who answered any question I could think of, plus some, without trying to oversell me. A few days later, I received information about the company I requested in the mail along with a short hand-written post-it that basically said, "thanks for calling". It wasn't a huge deal, but those little personal details really speak to me and I made a decision then to hire them on the spot.

Shortly after, we had our meeting with Jay where we discussed our vision for the wedding and talked about what Crestline did as a wedding DJ more in depth. The meeting was extremely helpful, and Jay comes with plenty of good references.

Jay had everyone dancing all night at the wedding and he kept things running smoothly. I think my best choice as far as vendors went was Jay from Crestline and I would absolutely hire him again and recommend him and Crestline to anyone I know.

I, the bride, thought things were a little rushed. But, my husband thought it was just to stay on track and schedule. We highly recommend Crestline!

Jay was amazing. He kept the dance floor packed the entire night and even got people to dance that normally don't dance at weddings. He really knew what he was doing. Getting the playlist and order of the songs after the fact was a really nice touch. Jay was very easy to work with and i would reccomend this vendor to anyone.

We used Crestline for our DJ as well as our photobooth and it was awesome! Dan the DJ was so nice, he helped me with song decisions and he consulted me when he thought I might want to know what was going on with requests. he kept the party going all night long - played all the songs were requested and even found a few obscure songs we wanted. Can't recommend enough.

The photo booth was awesome and the guys running it was awesome!!! Get a photo booth! Do it!

This is a company that knows what they're doing. I was skeptical about DJs... They are all really expensive and what's the real difference anyways? I am so glad we decided to go with Crestline. We consulted with Jay but decided to hire Dan (The cost difference was the determining factor - Jay was more expensive). I don't regret that decision at all. Dan was extremely professional and friendly. He understood our requests perfectly (I hate rap/techno music and love oldies). We also knew that by the end of the night our guests would want more dance music so Dan changed it up. He played a few songs that I don't know all that well but that my guests who were dancing absolutely LOVED. I really appreciate all they did for making our reception fun and keeping the guests entertained. Fabulous job!

Jay at Crestline was our DJ at my daughter's wedding New Year's Eve, 2012. I chose him from his reviews online and could not have been happier. We had a small wedding with 115 people. The dance floor was full the entire evening until 1:00 am. I would use him again if I had another wedding to plan. His prices are reasonable and he is very nice to work with.

Jay was the DJ at our New Years Eve wedding so the pressure was on for a fun night. He arrived with plenty of time to get set up in the banquet room. We actually met with Jay a few days before the wedding to go over introductions, sequence of events and music selections. We were pretty clueless on just about everything so we relied on Jay to bring his expertise to the table. He helped me make sense of the sequence of events so that the evening flowed perfectly. We didn't have to worry about anything from the moment our reception begun. He included all of our must play songs and really felt out the room to see what else would work. If a song didn't work he recognized that and changed it and instantly our guests were back out there having a great time. I have never seen a wedding where people danced more than at our wedding. Once dinner was over the party didn't stop till 01:00. People came up to my husband and I as they were leaving and said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to and we definitely have to credit Jay for a part of that. We highly recommend Crestline Entertainment and Jay for any event! He was a big part of making our wedding the best night of our lives!

But from start to finish Jay blew us away with his knowledge of music, great energy, and professionalism. We received so many compliments from our friends and guests, and would recommend him to anybody looking for a DJ.

My (now) husband and I were very fortunate to have excellent wedding vendors however our DJ Jay Frank was by far our best and favorite vendor! Jay is an amazing professional who truly takes the stress off you on your wedding day (and I’m sure for any other large event). All of his advice was EXCELLENT! At one point my husband and I were eager to do our first dance however the sweet table had just opened so he advised against it. He did an amazing job of keeping people on the dance floor and playing AMAZING music. All of our guests complemented the music selection which Jay was responsible for selecting 99% of since we didn’t spend a lot of time providing suggestions. If someone requested a song that Jay wasn’t sure we would like he would even check with us. He was also great about giving us notice before a big event or special song came on. Jay also had a great online portal to provide information he would need for the event as well as listen to song samples. There was a selection of songs provided for each component of the wedding ceremony, father/daughter dances, etc. Although this was meant for the DJ it was also helpful for us in terms of getting things in order. Jay was extremely flexible and helpful-even during the most stressful moments of wedding planning. He had the perfect level of involvement during our special night and he is a very skilled dancer and will help guests with dance instruction if you want him to! You definitely get what you pay for and more-he is extremely experienced and brings a lot of wisdom in terms of helping you make the best decisions for your event. My mom has used Crestline for many years and has worked with multiple of the DJS from there. Jay is her favorite but she said she has never had a bad experience with any of the DJS!

Crestline provided our wedding with music for an outdoor ceremony, remote speakers for cocktails in a seperate room, mic'd the officiant and reader, and provided on the spot attention to guest requests and awesome lighting. Thanks you so much! We hands down recommend Crestline.

My wife and I had an idea of what all makes up a successful wedding, but when it came to what songs we should use for which actiities, we just didn't know where to begin. We knew a couple of songs and genres that we were interested in, but for the most part we were pretty open to what was played.
From the beginning Jay was extremely helpful. He was patient with our lack of knowledge of the whole wedding process and professional in his dealings with us and our selected venue. He made suggestions and helped us make our way through planning out the ins and outs of the ceremony and reception and style it to our personal likings.
When the wedding finally came, I felt as if we had provided Jay with sufficient information to successfully dj the wedding, but I also felt like we left him with a very small picture of what music worked for us and our family. Later on I realized it didn't matter, because Jay had successfully read our family and was playing the best songs! Ones that we hadn't even mentioned to him that we liked. Jay is a mind reader whos only desire is to make your wedding memorable.
He was also amazingly flexible as he was prepared to make changes and accept requests seamlessly.
I thanked Jay profusely for helping create a memorable moment for my new wife and myself and still feel that I owe him greatly for such a job well done. Crestline was one of the best decisions my wife and I had made in relation to our wedding and there are not enough stars available to rate them properly.

Jay, hands down, helped provide an awesome wedding for my husband and I. We received compliments all night and for days to come how good our DJ was at Crestline. The party just kept going with his help! Worth every penny that we spent. We had met with Jay summer of 2011 when we were visiting Chicago from New York instantly knew we wanted to work with him.

He had such great music selection, and what he didn't have, he went out and got for us. He hosted the event and played a vast selection of music for all age groups for the entirety of the night. He was able to tie in songs that were must plays and was respectful of songs that we absolutely did not want to have played at the wedding.

It was a pleasure to work with him and I would recommend him to anyone. He made the whole process stress-free. He called at the beginning of the week to go over all the specific details of important dances so that we wouldn't have to worry about it the day of. And everything was online, which was incredibly convenient being out of town. We can't wait to go back and listen to selection of songs that were played at the wedding to re-live the special time.

Thanks Jay! You're awesome!

He kept the party going all night long, and even when things lulled down he was able to bring us all back on the dance floor and was just wonderful.

Jay was an incredible DJ to work with and gave us the most spectacular wedding. He went above and beyond his role of DJ to ensure that we had everything we wanted and that everything was exactly what we had expected. Jay even came to our house during the week before our wedding to pick up our iPod so that he could play the playlist we had created for the cocktail hour and dinner. Jay did an incredible job playing music for the ceremony and did an even more incredible job during the reception. Our guests all commented that they had more fun at our wedding than they did at any other wedding they had attended and this is mostly due to Jay and his work. He was incredibly kind and welcoming to all of our guests. He created a wonderful atmosphere full of joy and celebration. What Jay did was worth so very much and yet he charged a VERY reasonable price compared to other DJs that we looked into. We felt very fortunate to have found him and are so thankful for what he did for us at our wedding. He is a true gift.

From our first meeting with Jay my new wife and I were blown away by his professionalism, attention to detail, and general commitment to what we were looking for. Jay did our wedding on October 1st and we can simply tell you that you should save yourself some time and headaches and just call him. Jay always responded to our emails promptly and even called my then fiancee to ask her how we were doing as our wedding approached. We were absolutely pleased with the awesome choices in the playlist that we provided to him. The dance floor was packed all night and Jay helped make our wedding a night to remember. The DJ you pick will make or break the most important day/night of your life. He is a phenomenal DJ and a great guy.

Jay DJ'ed our wedding on 9/4/11, and I don't think I could have asked for a better DJ. From the very start we were incredibly impressed. We met with 3 DJ services, and he was the most personable, most knowledgable, and seemed to REALLY enjoy what he does and seemed to really love music. He had his own opinions on things...which was great for pointing us in the right direction in some areas, but he was also very open to any opinions and ideas we had. He showed us everything he had to offer, and spent a great deal of time working with us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. We weren't totally on top of deadlines when it came to music selection and getting Jay the info we needed, so his call to us a few nights before the wedding was great! He thought of questions regarding topics we hadn't even considered, and he seemed genuinely excited to be DJ'ing our event! Jay was very professional, but also very fun. He advertised that he could keep the floor packed throughout our reception, and he DEFINITELY did! We received so many compliments after the wedding, and we still are! I truly hope we get the chance to work with him again, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding, or any other party. Thanks Jay!!!!!!

Jay's presentation at our first meeting made it easy for us to make our decision. He kept in touch during our entire wedding planning process to see if there was anything he could help us out with.
On wedding day, he kept the party going. He played all of our requests and added his own touches to keep the dance floor going. He was so helpful. I was truly impressed and would highly recommend him for any function!

Although he was already highly recommended by the Beau Jolie by Victoria (our reception venue) and had some great reviews, I still shopped around extensively before hiring Jay at Crestline. His sales presentation was by far the most professional (including showing me videos of him at work, a complete set-up of his machines at his office so he can show me exactly how he does what he does, and a huge stack of hand written comment cards about him). I was most impressed with the comment cards since it was clear that none of them were written by the same person so they were truly legitamite compliments. He also had a very professional, easy to use, and helpful website that we coud use to organize our playlists and event.
As we approached the wedding I had to make so many changes (mother of the groom kept changing what song she wanted for mother/son dance, introductions for the reception kept changing, and the whole order of the reception kept changing) but he remained kind, patient, and very understanding.
In the end, everyone loved the reception in large part to his a lot of the songs he added himself. He included all of the parts I wanted flawlessly and left out all of the songs I requested be avoided.
Everyone loved him so much, one of our guests even asked for his contact information so that she might be able to hire him for their wedding at the end of the month.

The dance floor was full all night long, and everyone was commenting how great the DJ was, and how they danced more than they usually do. A great DJ is key to a great reception, and Jay definitely delivered the goods. I highly recommend him to anyone that's looking to have an awesome reception.

Jay is the exception to that and was very quick to get back to us either via email or phone. He was a pleasure to work with and we were very satisfied with his services!

We worked with Crestline and had the pleasure of having Jay Frank as our DJ for our reception. Their online database allows you to enter in all the necessary information for the day including entrance songs, dialogue, dos and don’ts, and anything else you could imagine you would need to take care of. They are extremely quick to respond to emails or concerns that you may have leading up to your event. Their professionalism is superb and the company made the process a enjoyable one instead of it being stressful and unsure of what we were getting in the end.

Jay was great to work with. He always responded to my e-mails quickly and I was able to do most of the planning online through his online tool, which was nice because if I thought of a song I wanted, I could add it whenever I wanted to without bothering him. My husband's family is Slovenian, and while Jay did not have any Slovenian-specific music (who would?) he picked the tapes up that my in-laws provided (we are local). Jay also provided an LCD projector (additional cost) when we decided two weeks before the wedding that we wanted to do a slideshow. He called about a week or two before the wedding to check up on everything-- even to see how I as the bride was managing my stress! He really helped manage the entire reception so I did not have to worry about when to do anything. He suggested ahead of time when we should do everything and always came to find us and give us some time before we had to cut the cake, toss to bouquet, etc. He stuck to the timeline and knew exactly when everything needed to happen, and when we were running 5 minutes late to take a few pictures outside, he came to check in with us and adjusted accordingly. I would recommend Jay to anyone and would certainly use his services again!

He did a beautiful job with the ceremony, and we received so many compliments on all of the selections, from the reception, to dinner, and throughout the whole evening. He was so thoughtful to include some fun Polish songs and polkas, and he fulfilled all of our requests without a hitch.

Jay did an all-around outstanding job! In the months leading up to the wedding, he promptly answered all of our questions via email, and was the only vendor who always answered his phone - we never even had to leave a voicemail. At the reception, he played all of our favorites, blended the songs together perfectly, and was involved a bit when needed, but otherwise stayed in the background as he kept the dance floor packed the entire evening! Jay is professional and experienced, and his flexibility, attention to detail, and organization ensured that our event would go smoothly. Our guests keep telling us how much they enjoyed dancing at our reception, and everyone agreed that Jay was truly the best DJ they had seen in the Chicago area. Highly recommended!!

Jay played all the music that we suggested and made the selections blend nicely into each other. The guests enjoyed the mix and had a terrific time. Of all the DJs we had interviewed, Jay was very professional and his price was very affordable. We highly recommend Crestline for any size wedding party!

Jay at Crestline was great!!! I am still getting comments from guests on how great the music was. He was just as professional as you would want your DJ to be; not completely removed, but not too involved to the point where you wanted him to stop. He really made the guests feel comfortable, and it wasn't as though he had to do anything crazy to get our guests to get up and dance. I would definitely recommend Crestline Entertainment to anyone in the Chicagoland area. They are extremely flexible and very pleasant to work with. I was in contact with them consistantly, and Jay answered EVERY question I had immediately. The DJ is a huge portion of your wedding, and can make or break the entire reception. I was VERY pleased with my choice, and would suggest checking them out if you're looking for a DJ; you will not go wrong with this choice!

Everyone had such a wonderful time dancing at the reception, and I know that was all thanks to Jay! He read the crowd amazingly and the dance floor was packed all night! I could not be more impressed with Crestline and I highly recommend this company, and Jay Frank the DJ to anyone who wants a fun wedding and a professional and trustworthy vendor! Thank you Crestline for helping make my wedding day so special and fun! Read less

We went with lights and DJ services from Crestline and we loved the service we received. There were a few hiccups with the music, but nothing that ruined the evening. Dan was our DJ and he was very attentive and helpful. We made a few last minute changes to our wedding ceremony music and he was able to accommodate us, which was just amazing!

Jay Frank was our DJ & he was fantastic! We were impressed right from the start- after filling out an online questionnaire to get pricing, Jay personally emailed us to let us know that due to the type of wedding we were having, he thought perhaps the pricing that resulted was too high & wanted to discuss things further. From our 1st conversation Jay's professionalism & dedication to his craft were evident. Jay was open to our ideas about our non-traditional wedding, while offering guidance & suggestions from his many years of experience. That took so much stress off of us! The night of the wedding, he was at the venue early & did alot to coordinate with our other vendors, & communicating with us, ensuring an evening that flowed seamlessly. The songs he played were awesome- honoring both our 'listed' songs & guest requests, & people were dancing all night! Sooo many of our guests said ours was the best wedding they'd ever been to!! Thank you, thank you, Jay!!!

Would recommend. Lighting system was awesome; so many folks were taking pics of how the lights shown across my dress. DJ was able to obtain all of the songs picked for the ceremony and reception (some not so traditional too). Small issue with the mic during the toast that the DJ apologized for. Rated a 4 on quality of service because I would have preferred more attention be given to the length of song intro during the processional--the bride's sone barely made it to the words by the time I made it to my groom. Very pleased that DJ had a lapel mic for the offician and readers during the ceremony.

Jay from Crestline was very good. We chose him for our wedding after 2 different recommendations from friends. Jay was nice and very reliable. My only problem was that I had to coordinate between Jay and the ceremony musicians (Which is a hard task when you are coordinating 1000 other things at the same time for an outdoor ceremony by yourself) And we ended up doubling up on some equipment that both Crestline and the ceremony musicians were bringing. But since we were already under contract Crestline wouldn't let us back out of that equipment. I was disappointed because I ended up paying a few extra hundred dollars on equipment I didn't even need. It added quite a bit of extra stress the last few weeks before our big day as I know nothing about audio equipment. Overall, I was happy and received lots of compliments about how great the music was, but I wish Crestline could have been more understanding with our situation.

Crestline Entertainment, Inc. responded with the following comments:

At Crestline, we understand the pressures brides an grooms must deal with on a daily basis. Putting together a wedding reception is hard work. We respect that & have always been sympathetic to our client's evolving situations, but sometimes we are "damned if we do" or "damned if we don't". As a business, we hold equipment and services for clients who contract for these services. In April, the client asked if we could provide a sound system and mic some musicians they had hired for their ceremony. After presenting them with a couple options on how this could be done, the client decided on 6/3 to add one of the 'live sound' packages (3 1/2 months prior to their special day). The client was informed by e-mail on 6/3, that "these additional services are non-cancellable" and that a $100 deposit was required to hold these services. On 6/9 an agreement was sent, signed and returned with a deposit. On 9/12 (2 weeks before the wedding) I received an e-mail from the groom saying that the musicians had their own sound gear. While I totally sympathize with the bride and grooms predicament, unfortunately I am unable to re-rent any gear with only 2 weeks notice. Why wasn't the potential need for sound gear and microphones discussed with the musicians before they were hired??? If the bride and groom were not informed by the musicians that they had their own sound gear (or were mis-led by them), then they should have been given a refund by the musicians and rated them a 3.6, not us. We reserved the gear and delivered the services as contracted for. Our client stated they "were happy and received lots of compliments about how great the (reception) music was". I am happy the bride and groom loved my DJ services, but if mis-communication between themselves and the musicians is why my DJ services are being rated so low then I ask you, how is that fair?

Our wedding day was not DJed by DJ Jay, but sub-contracted out to DJ Shad. We tried scheduling to meet with Shad two weeks before the wedding, but there was little response from Crestline. After several days, we were told that Shad would be contacting us the next day, but he did not. Jay sent a back-up DJ (just incase Shad did not work out) to meet with us and we went over our wedding ceremony and desired dances/music. The next day, Shad contacted us looking to meet. We met with Shad over the weekend (one week before the wedding) even though we met with the backup previously in the week. Jay told us Shad was one of his best performers, but we were not impressed by him during our meeting. We seriously did not know who would be showing up at the wedding, which made us very nervous.

On the wedding day, Shad and emergency back up DJ showed up. Shad was not initially wearing a tux. The wedding ceremony was very disappointing. DJ was supposed to play Pachelbel’s Canon in D, however music cut in and out with static. I guess they forgot to perform a sound check. We never received an apology.

Reception was smoother. However, Shad forgot to do Anniversary dance and Hokey Pokey which were both dances we specifically requested.

In summary, we would not recommend Crestline. We could have done a better job with the ceremony music using a boom-box and saved $1,000.

Crestline Entertainment, Inc. responded with the following comments:

Dear Janet & Sean: All of us at Crestline are sorry that we did not live up to your level of satisfaction. We really do try to run the best DJ company that we know how. On 3/4/13 Janet (the Bride) spoke with me about booking our DJ services for her (& Sean’s) wedding 8/17/13. This was a morning/afternoon event & while she had requested my personal services it was explained to her that I already had an early evening event which made it impossible for me to be personally contracted as their DJ. After listening to her concerns & considering who was available for the date, Shad seemed to be the best fit.

Why we Contract: The wedding business is no different than any other business. We issue 'performance contracts' to our DJ's provide the necessary time & materials needed for each event. A Contract is a "legal obligation" for services to be rendered versus an employee relationship where employees can quit (without penalty) at anytime. We believe this best protects the interest of all parties.

We are always happy to meet clients when possible. However, due to prior obligations, Shad (or I) could not meet with them when they wanted. Sean was not specific with who he met from our company, so Jeff was sent out. Even though Jeff had all the details & was assigned to run the LCD photo montage, Sean & Janet still met with Shad anyways on 8/10 when there was no need to do so. Maybe Sean felt confused, but Shad was listed on their signed agreement as being their DJ.

Hello Jay,
I am the groom for the Chu/Werner wedding scheduled August 17th at xxxxxxxxxxxx. Janet & I submitted the music choices for the event on your website. We would like to meet with you or one of your associates to discuss the details of the event. Please let us know when you would be avialable to discuss.
Thank you,
Sean Werner (Cell xxx-xxx-xxxx)
Janet Chu (Cell xxx-xxx-xxxx)

Attire: When temperatures are 85 degrees (hot! - as it was on 8/17) we would hope everyone might understand not wearing a tux for the equipment set-up would be ok. I am sorry that the attire Shad chose to wear was not acceptable in your opinion. I have expressed your concerns about this with Shad & he sends his apology.

The Anniversary Dance & Hokey Pokey: Yes, the Anniversary Dance & the Hokey Pokey were not played. Being an morning/afternoon event dance time is always less than evening events. Shad felt that time was better served by sticking to the play list provided. Shad played 18 out of the 20 songs that were listed. Afternoon events present a special challenge. Having only an 1 hour & 15 minutes to work with can make it impossible for us to get to everything on an agenda. Shad maybe did not do exactly what was ideally hoped for, but I believe he did what was best for the party. Again, all apologies.

Sound problem: All gear leaves in good working order, but unfortunately electronics can act up at any time. The equipment was checked prior to the ceremony & played fine on the bridal party processional. Sound checking would not have prevented the speaker from failing; unfortunately it just did it at a most inopportune time. A short-term work-around was taken to counter the problem. We are sorry for the inconvenience & the speaker has been sent out for repair.

Amount Charged: Actually, the reception package included the ceremony music & speaker at no extra charge (not $1,000 for the ceremony as he states) plus an LCD Projector package. Our goal was to try & save Sean & Janet some money by not having to provide a second sound system, but never at the expense of compromising our service. (Sean also mentions nothing in his post about their final payment to us being short.)

In closing, we offer online "Satisfaction Surveys", analog "DJ Rating Cards" or the trusty telephone for feedback. We always want to know our clients thoughts, even if it's not what we want to hear. We are sorry that Sean felt it necessary to bring his dissatisfaction of our services to the "court of public opinion", rather than to see if we could help him first. Maybe he felt nothing could be changed to right what was done or that we are not interested. That's hardly the case, after serving brides and grooms for 23 years there is no one who cares MORE. We sincerely hope Sean & Janet can reflect on all the good things that happened on their special day. We wish them the best for love, laughter & "happily-ever-after".
