FOREWORD: If you are looking for YMCA, Celebration, We Are Family and the Electric Slide type of party there are 100 other tuxedo sporting mobile services that you can hire and I'm sure they are eager for your business.

Still with me? GREAT!

FUN WARNING: You must be at least (point to yourself) this awesome to ride this ride.

NOW if you want a totally fun party that your friends and family will be talking about for years then look no further. I thrive on making every event I DJ memorable and most importantly as fun as possible. Nothing makes me happier than to see you dancing all night long -- it's a part of who I am.

And what kind of DJ am I? Well let me tell you: I am the "dance until your feet are tired and your face hurts from the good time you are having" type of DJ. In my "professional" party opinion, guests are there to do three things: mingle, drink and dance. Your guests are NOT there to see a laser light show and listen to a MC on a microphone. My parties are dance floor FULL, and crazy lights and cheesy MC free.

A sampling of my most recent playlist includes: Prince, James Brown, Joan Jett, Montell Jordan, Calvin Harris, The Steve Miller Band, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, The Beatles, and Usher. As an added bonus, playlist customization is also available. Afterall, I want to DJ the party you want to be at.

Remember that besides the beautiful and poignant ceremony you are planning, the DJ (that's me) makes or breaks the rest of your special event. I've seen the very good, the vanilla, the bad and the wish-I-could-forget DJs. It is so cliche but also so very VERY accurate: with DJs you really do get what you pay when it comes to professionalism, talent and fun, and I am well worth every dollar you'll invest.

Make sure to check out my reviews and lets chat about your event very soon.

Warmest regards with a side of radical,

Extensive experience, high quality hardware and can feel a room out. I would recommend Benny to anyone...even though he didn't play my favorite song "Shout!" He also takes incredible photos when he can during the whole event

Benny did an outstanding job. He was a huge part of our special day. We had him set up two different locations, one for the ceremony and a different area for the reception, which was not a problem for him. He also provided a lapel mic and a handheld mic for our ceremony, which was great. We had a family member do a reading and the handheld mic worked great for that. It also was a good back up since my experience with lapel mics, haven't always been the best. His setup worked amazing.

He came highly recommended from our friends so we didn't give him a ton of direction for the reception. We gave him a list of artists that we liked and let him mix the songs to go with the flow of the reception. This was great for us, because after meeting with him initially we felt that we could trust his knowledge and skill as a professional to provide a good atmosphere for our party. It also took a lot of stress off of us in picking every single song we wanted (but if you want to do that, I am sure he can accommodate).

He is very laid back and easy to work with. Our main goal from all of our wedding vendors were to limit the amount on our plate and let them do what they do best. This is exactly how our experience was with Benny. He exceeded our expectations and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great wedding DJ.

DJ Royale did an amazing job at my recent wedding. I did not know a lot of stuff while planning my wedding and did not have a coordinator and Ben was able to make suggestions for me and help me through the process. For my ceremony i had found music online and Ben was able to get those specific tracks for me and use them which i thought was amazing because i did not know that was possible. I did not pick out specific songs for my reception, all i could do was just tell Ben my style and some specific type of music to play and he was able to hand pick all the great songs from each genre. He knows his music and he knows people. He was able to get the crowd to dance and move the whole night. Not only did he provide me with great music and entertainment, he did a great job at maintaining the timeline and making announcements when needed. DJ Royale is good at his job and knows his music but also has a great personality and is easy to talk to which i think is a must when hiring a great DJ. I highly recommend DJ Royale to anyone who is looking to book a DJ for their event, he is sure to provide you with a great time. Thank you for making my wedding amazing DJ Royale!!

Ben was absolutely amazing! He made our day so special and soooo much fun. I was having such a hard time finding and choosing songs for our wedding day but Ben knew exactly what I was looking for before I did. He was such a great help. Ben is worth every penny. He was prompt, on time, respectful and very professional and always comes with a smile!! Seriously no need to look any further if you are looking for a DJ for your next event. I would recommend Ben to all my friends and family over and over again. Thank you so much Benny for all you did and making our wedding an epic party!

Ben Christiansen was fantastic! Great communication from the beginning. We had a lot of requested music we wanted played during our dinner/ cocktail hour and then gave him an idea of what kind of dance music we liked. Not our first marriage so we had some older music and classics we love. He was so accommodating and put together an evening of music that was exactly what we were looking for and that kept our guests dancing all night! He is a pleasure to work with and his attention to what we were looking for was very much appreciated.

DJ Royale was incredible. We knew going into the whole planning process that a DJ can make or break the party. From the get go, Ben was responsive, thoughtful and totally in touch with our wants and needs for the big day. He came well in advance to make sure everything was setup and ready to go. He was incredibly warm and friendly to all of our family and friends. We had people go out of their way to contact us and tell us how fantastic he was. I've been a bridesmaid 15 times and been to or coordinated numerous weddings and I have never seen that many people on the dance floor - and for 3 hours no less!!!! Highly professional and highly, highly recommended!

Looking for a DJ for your upcoming event? Quit reading this review and call DJ Royale right now! Benny was energetic and provided a great atmosphere for our group to have an awesome night on the dance floor. He was a great emcee for our reception as well, keeping things moving and hitting all the high notes. Our night ended with our entire group of friends dancing in a circle around us, and we have never felt so happy. Great music choices by Benny were instrumental in this, and our guests were impressed that he was able to provide transitions between songs, as well as mix music from many decades to keep everyone happy. He was on point with our requests and overall provided the best DJ experience we could have asked for. Seriously, quit reading this and call him!
