Dennis was professional and certainly sold us on his experience and knowledge. His organization of his client website, which allowed us to coordinate schedules with other vendors, timings, and preferred music, was far better than other vendors we interviewed.

Dennis created such a fun, warm atmosphere at our wedding. From the perfectly timed processional and recessional music at our ceremony, to the dinner music to the music that made people dance the night away, Dennis provided such professionalism and talent to our wedding. As a massive fan of organisation, I loved Dennis' client website - which allowed us to coordinate schedules, timings, and preferred music despite being separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Dennis was so friendly and kind, and made us feel comfortable from our first skype meeting. I would recommend him highly to anyone!

Dennis Payne of Playback DJ was exceptional from the start. At our first meeting, he arrived early to our decided meeting location and was set up with numerous visuals and examples to aid with our discussion and wedding planning. His manner was polite and kind, and he was accomodating to any idea presented. He reassured us that the day of our event he would be readily prepared for any unforeseen issue by having a back-up for every peice of equipment involved in our ceremony and reception. He walked us through the user friendly format he provides for making personalized song lists for our events, and the day of our wedding, all our favorites and special requests were played on point! He made announements exactly as requested with wonderful enunciation and enthusiasm, and remained quietly attentive to the music otherwise. His ability to alternate fast and slow dance music kept dancers of all kinds on the dance floor, and he was able to start each next song perfectly just as the previous was ending, so no awkward silences. He gave perfect instructions to guests when directing attention to events such as cutting our wedding cake, or the bouqet and garter toss. His equipment was classy and covered with special drapes in the color of our choosing so as to blend in with our wedding decor.
His service and equipment are of the highest quality and very fairly priced, and considering his expertise in his profession he is bargain. I would reccomend him 1000%.

When it comes to a wedding ceremony, my wife and I found the importance of having the right DJ which we learned through the amazing work of Dennis Payne of Playback DJ. Dennis was easy to work with throughout the planning process and special day. He kept us on schedule by being a time keeper, making announcements, and playing music he knows from experience are appropriate for each part.

My wife and I only chose a few songs we wanted to hear and let Dennis do the rest. I am a big music fanatic and it was hard for me to give up control of what was played. Dennis had a great read on everyone, my wife and I, our families, and all the guests, which had him playing all the right songs at the right times.

Thank you Dennis for all of your hard work and the service you provided!

DJ Dennis was a fantastic part of our wedding reception! First of all, his music library is outstanding so he had nearly every song we wanted; the few songs he didn't (like our first dance and last dance of the evening), he was able to get them for us. Secondly, he worked with us on the planning of our evening, but he was incredibly flexible with the evening itself. Because our dinner service took longer than we expected, we had to readjust parts of the night by cutting some things or moving things up. DJ Dennis took our changes with stride. Lastly, his professionalism was perfect for our night; his MCing was on point. Overall, I highly recommend DJ Dennis to all brides!!

Dennis is amazing, professional, provides over the top customer service... I could go on and on! I was in the unique position as the MOG, hosting and planning my youngest son's wedding at the beautiful Boar's Head Inn. Dennis made my job so easy and recommended options that neither me nor my daughter-in-law (who lives in Dallas) would of. Dennis provided both ceremony music and reception music for the Wedding. You know you have made the right choice when the last song is announced and everyone responds with - awwww already! We requested risers at the Boar's Head Inn so that Dennis was somewhat elevated above the dance floor for an amazing look. Our wedding was a black-tie event, and Dennis is elegant in appearance, and his equipment/set-up is extremely attractive and modern. We also used up-lighting from Dennis, and again he brought several options for us to choose from. We received numerous compliments from our guests, Dennis exceeded our expectations!

Dennis was truly a professional. He did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He had the songs we wanted, and even let us use extra lighting features at no additional cost. His response to all requests was timely. He was prompt to the rehearsal and on our wedding day. And the added bonus is he got everyone on the dance floor!

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!
