Dennis was wonderful to work with for our wedding at King Family Vineyard! He was open to using a play list we created for the cocktail hour (even if some of the music was obscure he managed to track it down!) in addition to running with suggested artists we gave him for dinner. His musical choices kept young and old alike on the dance floor as the night progressed. He was very invested in helping us have the wedding we envisioned. He even came to meet with us during the rehearsal and got there so early he helped my father unload his car with wedding decor! He was truly professional and we would recommend him to any couple without reservation!

Our wedding day was MAGICAL and even better than my best case scenario. DJ Payne was an integral part of making that happen for us. He took control where needed: guiding the entrances, pacing the reception, announcing things like the first toast, cake cutting, and the after-party. This was huge since we did not have a day-of coordinator. He also let the crowd set the tone and did not speak up much outside of the formal announcements (he did not play the annoying “tour guide” role). He also provided great up-lighting!

In advance of the wedding, he was very professional on calls and has a very organized system for submitting your reception timeline and music choices. I highly recommend DJ Dennis Payne.

My wife and I were delighted to have Dennis Payne play a key role on our wedding day. We knew that we wanted to be very hands-on with selection of dinner and dancing music, and Dennis accommodated our desire to plan our own bossa nova dinner mix and name a long list of must-play dance tunes, which he supplemented with some very good selections of his own. We also appreciated his amplifying the officiant, readers, and musicians for the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour.

Dennis made time to communicate with us in detail prior to the big day, so that he was more than ready to do his work and help us stay on schedule as we moved from each phase of the reception to the next.

We would definitely recommend Dennis to anyone looking for a professional and tasteful wedding DJ, regardless of whether you have a strong "vision" about how you would like the musical elements of your reception to go.

Dennis Payne is a pro. He conducted our wedding ceremony and reception exactly the way we requested and made sure everything was done in the best way possible. When our wedding planner suggested setting up his speakers in a different location, Dennis made clear that he didn't want to do it because sound quality would suffer and stood his ground. I'm glad we followed Dennis' advice because the sound quality of the music and voices of the officiant and other speakers were top notch.

He also looks like a pro. He was dressed well at the event and his table and equipment looked clean, modern, and appropriate for the occasion.

Throughout the process, he was prompt and responsive. We requested a pretty large number of songs that weren't in his library but he tracked them down and played them.

He's not going to do a lot of club DJ tricks or introduce the audience to new, obscure songs. But that's not what we were looking for. We wanted somebody to play our list of songs and so that we didn't have to worry about music or sound on our wedding day. We wanted a pro and we got one with DJ Dennis Payne.

Great DJ, great vendor!

Dennis did a wonderful job with the music for our reception. People were up dancing and enjoying the music, as much as our feet would allow. He read the crowd well, played the right mix of songs to keep the party going, and did all of our requests.

For our reception, we wanted to leave almost all of the music selection in the hands of the professional, and he did a great job. For the ceremony music, we had very specific requests, which he followed well and adapted easily to a few issues that came up.

As a vendor, he was exceptionally easy to work with, and fun too. Very flexible, very straightforward, very responsive.

To do their job well, DJs have to be professional and fun at the same time. From the phone interview to the end of the reception, Dennis was always both. Call him before he's booked.
