I thoroughly recommend using Darrell Ripley with DJU Productions. I enjoyed the proactive planning experience, where i was able to provide a full list of genres and songs ahead of time. He took care of everything and the day-of execution was so perfect from 7p-11p.

Darrell was such a fun and a true professional. Our wedding was small (75 guests inclusive of children) and my husband and I both have families that are not big into dancing. Darrell did his magic and at one point had EVERYONE on the dance floor. Watching my dad dancing the night away was a rare but exciting siting!

Also, in lieu of a Best Man or Maid of Honor speech, my sister decided to sing a song to us instead. This was not previously communicated to Darrell before the wedding, but he was so incredibly understanding and flexible and was able to find the kareoke version of the song in time for the toasts. That moment proved to be the most emotional for me, so I am so grateful he helped make it work flawlessly.

I can't stop thinking of future events within my family or friends that I can highly recommend Darrell to them. It was a whole lot of fun and very little work on my end.

Darrell was awesome!!!! We had a very specific list of songs for each aspect of our ceremony and reception and he nailed it effortlessly. Very responsive to emails and kept in touch until the big day. At the venue we met Darrell and he took the time to ask us if there was anything else we could think of that we wanted to include. He introduced himself to the bridal party and explained what was going on which was a big help. The Best Man's birthday was actually on our wedding day and so we wanted to sing him happy birthday after the speeches. Darrell made sure to incorporate this into the wedding as requested. He stuck to the song sheet extremely well and chose a few songs we hadn't just to get people onto the dance floor. Priced well, responsive, really nice, and made our day awesome. We would recommend Darrell and DJU Productions to anyone looking for a great DJ for their wedding!!!

We got married at The Bell Tower on 34th and used DJU Productions to DJ our ceremony and reception. The form they sent us ahead of time was very easy to understand and helped us plan every little detail. They gave us a “popular requests” music list, but were able to get all of the music we requested as well. We had face-to-face meeting ahead of time that really wasn’t even necessary because we had all the forms filled out ahead of time. We even had specially recorded music that we just had to email to them. Everyone was very friendly, helpful, and professional in the planning process.
The DJ at our wedding was Darrell. He was amazing! We were concerned that a morning wedding and noon reception would be boring, but Darrell had everyone on their feet and the dancing never stopped. He was incredibly energetic and made us feel like rock stars. He was very professional and understood my concerns and addressed each one. We are grateful that we chose DJU and had Darrell! He really made the whole event memorable and a total blast!

Our experience with DJU was fabulous. The guidance and service Darrell Ripley provided was exceptional. We got nothing but positive comments regarding the music played at our wedding and several guests personally came up to me to tell me how wonderful our DJ was. I couldn't recommend Darrell and DJU enough!!!!!

Darrell Ripley from DJU provided us with a very special experience from start to finish at our wedding reception at The Wynden. We finalized the order of events (reception format) and music about a week before the wedding, and Darrell came prepared and didn't miss a beat! He was an excellent DJ, and also an amazing emcee! The music and party never stopped once the dancing opened up to all of our guests, and he did a great job of playing older songs (but still incredibly fun) earlier in the night, while switching to more modern pop/dance songs towards the end. I'm sure any DJ from DJU would do a great job, but we highly recommend selecting Darrell if he is available.

Darrell kept our guest on their feet and involved in the reception. His enthusiasm was so energizing! DJU was easy to work with and get all our details ironed out and they were able to make a few last minute changes! Our photo booth was a big hit, our attendant was super nice and helped fill up our memory book.

We hired DJU Productions for lighting for our wedding ceremony this September. Our ceremony was at night outdoors and we needed professional lighting so that we could see and be seen by our guests and photographer. We got the quote from Bill for over $600. Week before the wedding we checked in with the company only to find the man we were working with had left the company and had not handed off our event to any of his coworkers. After some scrambling they were able to pull something together.
The lighting they provided for the wedding was pathetic. 10 orange colored uplights (we requested and our invoice said WHITE) that not only blinded us, but made us shadowy. My minister could not see her sermon because of the angle of the lighting (from below). There was no spotlighting or general lighting as was requested. We were extremely disappointed.
