Dennis Payne is super-professional and always available to give advice and work with whatever you envision for your wedding music. He provided our ceremony music in Trump Winery Chapel, and then provided MC and DJ services during our reception in the Pavilion. He brings his own lighting, and is happy to bring you one to test out the colors to decide what would look best (we chose blue!). He has a website that you can choose what you want played and what you want on the DO NOT PLAY list. The site is very easy to use, and it creates a timeline for you, too. He was very helpful and flexible with finding music that I wanted played during the ceremony, and came to our rehearsal to make sure everything would play seamlessly--and it did on our wedding day. He is very nice, kind and helpful. Many guests told me they thought he was fabulous and really enjoyed the music and dancing. He was always highly professional and did a truly fabulous job. Thank you so much, Dennis! You helped make our wedding a truly perfect day!

Dennis was one of our favorite vendors! He coordinated both our ceremony, cocktail, and reception music. He exceeded our expectations and delivered the fun, and easy experience we were hoping for. On our initial meeting, Dennis really took the time to listen, get to know our story, and what we were looking for on our wedding day. The online tool was easy to navigate and we were able to choose the majority our own music while still trusting his expertise and ability to guide the crowd when needed. He was a natural part of the ensemble and enabled a perfect flow to our day!

Dennis did a great job at our outdoor wedding, seamlessly providing introductory, pre/post-ceremony, cocktail, and reception music. He was incredibly easy to work with (as is his website that will get all the info he needs), very thorough in preparation (even going so far as to obtain several songs for us upon request), and played a great mix of the songs we selected. When a momentary power outage occurred (I believe due to someone tripping over a power cord), Dennis was quick to remedy the situation. During the outage, several guest began singing a particular song, and once the power came back, Dennis had that song playing on the speakers. Overall, we are completely satisfied with his services, and he would be a great addition to your wedding.

Dennis provided DJ services for my husband & I for our May 7th wedding for both ceremony and reception. We could not have been happier with how everything went. One big reason we chose him was that he was willing to come out for our ceremony rehearsal which was really important for our peace of mind and helped everything go smoothly. I could tell he really paid a lot of attention to the notes we provided him on our timeline, as well as do-not-play songs and must-play songs. I really appreciated his attention to these details and would highly recommend Dennis as your guy!

To say that we were happy with Dennis as our wedding DJ would be a serious understatement. As the groom, I was in charge of a few smaller tasks for the wedding as well as finding the DJ. I googled DJs in the Charlottesville area and Dennis' name kept popping up. Moving forward I emailed several DJs about their availability for my wedding date - several emails went unanswered - but not from Dennis. Dennis was the first email and you could feel his excitement in wanting to help make our big day special. Dennis wanted to know our story and hear from us and really took our suggestions to heart but also informed us about specifics that he felt would add to the day. The two weeks leading up to the wedding Dennis is excellent with phone calls to wrap up an loose ends and to go over final playlist ideas and "do and do not" play songs. Being big sports fan my wife and I entered to the Boston Bruins goal theme song and Dennis helped us record introductions (his idea) for the wedding party. He was right on cue with introductions, first dance, cake cutting, and all other day or specifics that are time sensitive. We had a short amount of time to dance after dinner and Dennis did a great job of jumping right into the uptempo music and getting people on the dance floor. In all everyone had an amazing night and Dennis helped play a huge role in that - we are so happy to have made the decision to have him be a part of our big day.

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!
