We used Doc Henley Smythe to DJ our wedding at Ingleside Vineyards. Overall, I think Doc did a great job with our wedding and would recommend using him to others.

Pros: He was fairly reasonably priced and was willing to work with our musical styles and requests. I wanted to put my deposit on my credit card (in order to get points) so he even set up his services on ebay for me to �purchase� using my credit card and pay via pay-pal. We did a lot of the work for him by providing a MUST PLAY and DO NOT PLAY list as well as a very detailed itinerary of the music selections that were to be played and when. He followed our MUST PLAY and DO NOT PLAY lists perfectly and would not budge no matter how many people requested the Chicken Dance. As long as we gave him enough notice, he could find any song for us. He even found some pretty obscure polka music for my mom! The song selections he chose were appropriate for the different events throughout the evening (music for cocktail hour, dinner music, etc). He�s a British guy, so his voice is really cool and could stand out when he was making announcements. He did a lot to keep the dance floor going but with little interruptions.

Cons: He was a little bit disorganized. We had to remind him that we paid our deposit via ebay. We had an odd set up such that we had �stations� at our wedding (i.e. the cocktail hour was in one place, the reception in another, the dance floor somewhere else, etc). So during the cocktail hour, the speakers wouldn�t stretch far enough out for everyone to hear and a lot of people missed our first dance since they couldn�t hear the song playing. The only glitch was that he was supposed to fade out from our intro song directly into our first dance song but that didn�t happen and we ended up standing there until the intro song was done playing.
