Let me take a few moments of your time to tell you about my DJ career & how Danamare Productions Mobile DJ came to be.

I started DJing back during my college years at Penn State in 1982. In the beginning, I was helping a friend of mine who bought a complete DJ setup from a business who was selling one of their systems. We did frat parties, formals & some of the local State College bars.

After college I moved to Binghamton, NY. There I had a six month radio show on a public station. I also worked some of the local bars under the name Sounds Fantastic.

In '89 I got married & moved to Frederick, Maryland. A new wife & a new place to live constituted a need to change the old DJ name & start a new. My father-in-law had come up with the name & it has been with us since. Danamare Productions was formed by using my wife's name Maryjo (aka Mare) & mine, Dan.

After a brief stint in Maryland, we moved back to Binghamton & I put a serious mode on building Danamare Productions Mobile DJ into a successful DJ business that offers high quality entertainment at an affordable price.

In January of 2000 we moved to Raleigh to soak up the sun & bring our musical experience to the south! We intend to bring a little of the upstate NY music style into the parties & events of the South.

DJ Dan was great!!!!! We had him DJ our wedding reception and had a blast. I loved that we could arrange almost everything online and that we could select songs to play. I would highly recommend DJ Dan to anyone getting married who is looking for a DJ.

Danamere Productions provided great service at a great value. I had a less-traditional event, and Dan took the time to meet with me in person to make suggestions and help me figure out exactly what I wanted. I sent lots of questions via email, and I don't think I ever waited more than 15 minutes for an answer! He was flexible in setting up the song list and helped the schedule run smoothly during the reception. Payment options were also very flexible. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Danamare Productions was fantastic and exceeded our expectations!

**Before the Wedding** - Dan was extremely responsive, helpful, and flexible with all of our request (even the super last-minute ones). He worked with us throughout the process to make sure everything was planned. It was really nice to have "wedding DJ" be one less thing we had to worry about because of Dan's involvement and self-sufficiency in the process.

**During the Reception** - Dan did a fantastic job with the music. He played all of our requests at perfect times, and did a superb job of reading the room to keep people on the dance floor. I had several guests tell me after the reception what a wonderful time they had, and what a great job the DJ did with the music. I would absolutely hire Dan again and will recommend him to all my friends.

My husband and I wanted very classic big band style music. He played that but he mixed in the club style music which I had said time and time again that I did not want. I felt like he wanted it his way and that was that. The price was good compared to other vendors. however I do not feel like I was heard and I would not recommend him to anyone, my wedding was perfect except the music. disappointed.

Danamare Productions responded with the following comments:

I take great pride it doing music for weddings. I did both the music for the ceremony & the reception for this event. I was given a list of songs that were to be played by the bride & groom and strictly played what was on the list. I did play some song requested by guests that were not in the genre of the event, but these were late in the event and only after consulting with the groom who OKed playing these songs. I'm disappointed in your review but understand that it's your big day & you want things to be perfect. Best of luck to you & sorry we didn't meet your expectations.

Great DJ, but didn't seem to get what type of people we were, even after meeting with him a couple of times. We expressed our interest in folk, ecclectic, fun music and that most of our guests are in their 20s and 30s. He played every line dance you could possibly imagine..... in a row. He said he would open up the floor for toasts after my brother did one, and he did not. He played the macarena!! ICK! Ladies, he's a good value. But please, please, have a "do not play" list for him.

A little disappointed in your review. We did talk about opening up the floor after the planned toasts, but it was never documented in our planer to do so. We do ask our clients to fill out a music selection list that includes must play, play if you have time & do not play. We did not get a do not play list. We had played most of the songs on the play list during dinner & cocktail where they fit best. Had I know you did not like the Marcarena or other line dances, I would not have played them. Thanks Dan

Dan was fabulous! He was the best DJ I have ever met! EVERYONE commented on how wonderful our wedding music was. We aimed for a very traditional, classy wedding and I was somewhat hesitant about the thoughts of a DJ. However, Dan proved me wrong. The music was perfect and there was nothing cheesy about it! I, personally, found Dan to be very flexible and willing to change things up just to suit me, the bride. We have spread great word about Dan and will continue to do so. THANK YOU, DAN!

I had been to a few weddings prior to getting engaged where no one was dancing, or there would be periods of an empty dance floor. When I got engaged I knew I didnt' want that to happen at my wedding. Dan played a great mix of music that kept the party going from start to finish. He also did a great job of supplying our ceremony music. I highly recommend Danamare Productions.
