Cindy Sandman (DJ Sandman Music) was the Music Coordinator for my wedding and the DJ for the reception afterward. She stayed in contact with us for the year prior to the wedding, had no problem with obtaining and utilizing the specialized music we requested, and was an extremely pleasant vendor. When we weren't sure which music piece to use, she was ready with appropriate recommendations. She kept the reception party moving along and kept us on track for each 'event' (entrance, first dance, cake cutting, etc.), plus quickly made announcements when needed or requested. She arrived early before the ceremony, and stayed through the entire reception to the end. ~JESSICA ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...

Have to add my two cents... Really appreciated Cindy's music and DJ work for my daughter's wedding, especially her cheerful disposition and willingness to provide the specific Celtic/Irish songs from our playlist. Thanks Cindy! ~Lee Ann, MOB (mother of the bride!)

Cindy played almost everything we asked for, we did not have time for eveything. She was great about keeping the schedule and announcements running smoothly the day of the wedding. She was very proactive about asking if we needed anything announced or when the best times to announce things such as toasts, cake cutting, first dance, and etc were with the flow of the wedding and making sure everyone was where they needed to be when the announcements were made. We forgot to have a song set for our entrance as husband and wife and she set it up perfectly on the day of with very little notice. She didn't have any equipement problems or lack of music. She worked great with our wedding planner to keep the timeline of the wedding running smoothly without a hitch. She was great to work with!

I don't really have anything bad to say about Sandy because she is a sweet woman. My only complaint is she didn't interact with the crowd. We had a small wedding of about 40 or 50 guests, and when she noticed guests were leaving she should have suggested moving up the timeline (which she provided as a guide) so that I could have done the bouquet toss, and the garter toss. She stated she isn't a wedding planner (which I understand) but when you see people are leaving maybe you should livin things up a little bit. (again just my opinion) but the blessing was on the timeline and it was never mentioned. When I asked her she stated "she didn't know what happened there" I know the crowd wasn't very lively but I feel if there would have been some interaction with everyone things would have livened up. Again nothing bad about her she is great, I just wouldn't recommend her for a wedding less then 100 people. For the price we paid I sure didn't feel like we got our money's worth...

I tried my very best to do everything I could we started at 2pm for the ceremony and by 4pm we had done everything such as dinner, toasts, cake, first dance etc... and almost everyone was gone down to approx. 20 people that were sitting at one table talking and not wanting to dance. My talking over the microphone over and over again wouldve been annoying. I went above and beyond even pouring ALL the champagne to get toasts moving along. It was a cold windy day and the reception was outside. I do approx. 60 weddings a year and 90% of them people dance and the floor is full. There was more to this wedding then just a lack of talking. I wish that people would've stuck around and had fun and enjoyed the music.

We hired DJ Sandman for our daughters wedding reception and it was an awesome experience. From the first meeting with Cindy we could tell that she really knew her stuff. She did much more than just DJ for us, she also took charge of the whole evening and made sure that everything went as planned and on schedule. It was truly a stress free event. I wouldn't hesitate to use her services again and highly recommend DJ Sandman to anyone looking for a top notch and affordable DJ.

Cindy was amazing. The venue was being very difficult and was causing a lot of stress. It seemed every vendor for the wedding wasn't coming thru. On short notice we finally were able to get a DJ and she sure was a saviour. When it came to the music it was smooth sailing. She accomodated all of our requests and keep the party going. Thank you for being perfectly amazing!!!!

Cindy has exceptional talent as a DJ! She rose to the occasion, arrived early, and did everything we asked for (and didn't ask for) throughout the event including turning down request on our "no-play" list, keeping the dance floor energetic and full, and managing the flow of the night impeccably. She is very friendly, dresses for the occasion, and her confidence as an emcee and DJ put us at ease on our big day. We are grateful and would highly recommend her for anyone planning a wedding!

Just a note, her pre-ceremony communication had us initially a little concerned as we thought we needed to set up a pre-wedding meeting, however she was much more chill than us! Our recommendation is to have confidence in her abilities and she will absolutely exceed your expectations for whatever type of function you put on.

Cindy was so great at our wedding she made sure everything ran smoothly and kept the music going! She also is great at responding back to any questions and helping you get that special day in order! She was also nice enough to go on to YouTube and get a song to play so that my husband could dance to it (Which he thought about it at the last minute) Thanks again!

Cindy is very unprofessional and puts her business last on your list of things to do everyday. She is very uncommunicative and very unprofessional about anything business related. I hired her to DJ at my wedding, 5 hour package added on 1/2 hour and the lights. She barely ever responded to my texts/emails, when she did, very uninformative. I was worried up to the big day that she would just not show up. She informed me on our last meeting day, Monday before our wedding, that it would be HER & a guy to DJ. She also assured me setup would be 3-3:30pm. Our wedding day 4pm. According to all of my paperwork the wedding would take place at 4pm and we would be in the reception hall at 4:15pm. 4pm put the backup plan in full force. Cindy is nowhere to be found, nor does she answer the phone call placed at 4pm. Come 4:05pm guy DJ, no Cindy, is just now getting here and setting up. We ended up stalling a little bit just to make sure they had enough time. I got MANY complaints from my guests about how bad of a DJ I had and how he isn't doing anything but playing songs, no fading in and out of songs at end/beginning, just basically acting like a jukebox. He doesn't announce many things or get our guests involved at all. He sat on his cell phone the whole night and there were MANY moments of no music. Skipped the important parts of songs. We all ended up leaving 2 hours early, horrible job! He also didn't bring the light package with him, which we paid for. I let her know about our missing lights and that he was late. She emailed me later saying she would send me a refund minus the discount, also that the dj had plenty of time and it only takes 15 mins to set up. I emailed, if we hadn't stalled and all went to plan he would be setting up as our guests were entering. I don't expect to ever see my refund. Cindy is unprofessional and rude. How can you be a good business woman if you can't own up to your own mistakes, quit making excuses. Check her out on other sites, all bad!!

I have tried to email, call and text to work things out with Cari and she will not respond to anything. You can ask anyone that I am not rude and completely opposite of that as I would bend over backwards for someone.
Our contract states we will arrive 30 minutes prior to start time and our start time was 4:30/4:45 for music , we were not part of the ceremony , which was not in the same location as the reception.
We actually got compliments that night and a request for information . The wedding party was only about 50 people , we played all the same music that gets most receptions having fun though its hard with such a small group not wanting to dance. I would be happy to do whatever it takes to make Cari happy and to fix the situation. Please call or email me.

Cindy is a fantastic DJ who is adept at managing a crowd and maintaining a celebratory mood throughout an event. She is the house DJ for the venue I selected, so while I did not have the opportunity to interview other DJs, we were overall happy with our choice.

Cindy arrived at our venue on time, played the correct music, and kept the party going during the reception. She was wonderful at handling requests from guests while keeping to the atmosphere we had requested. For instance, she turned down an awkward karaoke request by a well-meaning but inebriated friend, but allowed a request from my brother-in-law, father-in-law and groom to do an impromptu rendition of one of my favorite songs – which became a highlight of the night. That kind of good judgment allowed me to relax and have fun with my guests during my reception knowing that she would keep things running smoothly.

As is often the case with small business owners, Cindy’s pre-event communication was not quite on par with her exceptional talent as a DJ. She was very friendly in person, but extremely difficult to get a hold of by phone or email and did not always seem familiar with the terms of our contract (For instance, our contract stipulated she would provide lighting, which was never delivered). I would recommend ensuring all details are fully ironed out upon signing the contract to avoid communication issues in the weeks leading up to your event, particularly if that event is during the busy wedding season.
