DJ Robert was amazing. Very professional and did a great job with the flow of the wedding. He kept us on the schedule we had outlined and did a wonderful job with the music. The dance floor was never empty and the bride and groom said that was the most fun they ever had in their whole life.

Working with DJ Robert Eidson was a pleasure. He was friendly, provided great suggestions, and was easy to get in touch with. I would definitely use him again for an event in the future. The only thing I noticed was that he did not play all the songs I requested; however, the music that he played instead was still fun and relevant to a wedding.

DJ Rob did a fantastic job at our wedding! You really do not realize exactly how important this person is to your wedding. I could not have been any more fortunate to have Robert as my DJ/MC on the day of our wedding.

Honestly Robert was a great DJ. Before even officially asking him to do our wedding, he talked to me on the phone on a Saturday for an hour. I told him what I was looking for and not only listened, but gave me feedback on how my choices of music could affect the mood at my reception. I should also mention that while I'm not a bridezilla by any means, I am a picky person in general and really care about the music! I didn't want any wedding cheesy music. (ex. "Shout", "YMCA", "Baby Got Back", "Electric Slide", etc.) He helped guide me to make a playlist that still focused on the hits for all age groups, so that everyone still had the type of fun you look for at a wedding!

He also allows you to pick a "Do Not Play" list and sticks to his guns when any songs on the list are requested - unless you give it the go ahead, as per his words.... "It won't get played." Aside from the music we requested on our "Play List" that we gave him, he picked songs that were very similar in taste and really added to our songlist that night. We gave him a few ideas of what we wanted to be played at dinner (Michael Buble, Ray LaMontagne, etc.) and he ran with it playing all the right songs we were looking for to set the tone.

Robert was extremely professional and has ALOT of know how when it comes to creating a fun wedding for your guests. He will listen to your needs and give you very insightful feedback, so that you can make the right music choices to please a crowd. I heard from many guests of ours during our reception that they thought he was so great! Everyone was commenting on how much they liked his playlist! Thank you Robert! If I ever get married again (JK), I will call you to DJ!

I cannot say enough great things about Robert! He did such an incredible job at our wedding! Throughout the entire process he was helpful, professional, and prompt with responses. He was flexible with our timeline and easily adapted when we were running late. We had several specific requests that I thought would be hard to pull off and totally depended on his timing with songs-they were executed perfectly!! He was incredibly professional and knew how to keep the party going! He is definitely the dj you want!!

Robert was a great DJ! Incredibly professional, personable and fun to work with. He offered valuable suggestions and helped us plan our reception timeline with ease. He made it an easy process and he was always willing to meet, whether it be over the phone or in-person. On the day of the wedding, he helped us keep the evening perfectly organized. He worked in tandem with our caterer and our evening went off without a hitch. For his professionalism, fun demeanor and great music selection - we would HIGHLY recommend!!

Robert was an amazing and integral part of our wedding reception. He did a great job of keeping the flow of the reception moving and was polite and awesome getting the guests involved and dancing without making himself the center of attention. We had made a playlist in advance to give Robert some ideas on our music and personality style and tastes, and he stuck with the playlist, as well as providing additional music that we had not thought of, which was perfect in getting our guests dancing and having a great time!

It was a pleasure and very easy to work with Robert, even though my fiance and I were in Atlanta planning a wedding 8 hours away in Sarasota, FL. He had a flexible schedule, was easy to contact and speak to both in person when I was in town, as well as over the phone and via email if I had any questions or concerns regarding the event. Robert was also extremely professional, arrived on time, played music the entire evening and did exactly what he said he would do and guaranteed in our contract. It was refreshing meeting and working with a D.J. that supported our eclectic style and array of music, and found a way to include our indie rock, hip hop, old school favorites and current hits into one of the most memorable nights of our lives. Even our guests were impressed, saying he was one of the best D.J.'s they had heard at an event. I would highly recommend Robert for any event needing a D.J. and was extremely impressed with his D.J. skills:)
