My husband contacted DJ Kevin for our recent wedding in Boothbay Harbor, ME. Kevin was very helpful and responsive throughout the process. He also gave us a great rate because we had a Sunday wedding, plus included lighting in the package.

We also appreciate his willingness to accommodate us so last minute with our song requests! We were pretty behind in a lot of our wedding details, and we literally emailed Kevin with a list of song suggestions 2 nights before our wedding. He still was able to get us special versions of first dance songs, honor song requests, and follow our suggested event flow.

Obviously, our night did not go exactly according to schedule, and I thought Kevin did a nice job of making suggestions and adjusting to how things were naturally unfolding. He also read the crowd and played songs based on age, mood, etc.

Overall, great experience & recommended!

I will start by saying that the up lighting looked great and that I really appreciate their "all-inclusive" approach for pricing - a breath of fresh air compared to traditional wedding vendor pricing.

Working with the owner, Bill, was great. He was extremely friendly, professional, and responded to all correspondence quickly. I honestly wish he could have just been our DJ and probably would have been willing to pay more to have that (knowing what we know now).

It was not that our DJ did a bad job -- he played the songs we requested, he made the announcements we asked....it was just not 5 stars worthy. We requested the medium range of outgoing-ness, but do not feel our DJ was outgoing at all.

All of the songs on our "must play" list were played, but some were not the original versions of the song or they were just played at off times (we are all about a good flow). We put one polka on the list that was a family song (in memory of my grandma who passed away earlier this year) and he played a version that sounded nothing like the original version...it was a complete miss and the excitement of the song was completely ruined. We did not ask that he say "in memory", but if you are going to play non-original versions of a song on a must play list, you should talk to the bride and groom about it.

Our expectations were extremely high given our exceptional experience with our other vendors and the time/effort we put in to making our day extra special. Our day was amazing and our guests had a great time, it would have just been great to feel like ALL of our vendors gave us exceptional service.

Overall, I would recommend this vendor, but only if the below changes are made:
1. Spending more time considering what DJ be placed on an event
2. Having a system where the DJ and couple meet and talk multiple times vs. just a quick call 3 days before the event. Also making sure DJs are extremely detailed oriented and ask questions/review the booklet in advance

Double Platinum was great from beginning to end. We met with Bill initially and he answered all of our questions and was so responsive to all the emails we sent him after as well. Allen our dj was amazing! He knew what to play to get the crowd up and dancing and accommodated a lot of our song requests. We were dancing all night! We'd recommend them to anyone!

David was our DJ upon request and he was wonderful. Double Platinum was helpful and informative during my planning and answered questions well. I requested a DJ that was familiar with and enjoyed funk music, as we wanted to feature that at our wedding. David was originally suggested and they followed through with that. He definitely was able to gather our vision for or wedding (which was not the usual dance hits) and followed through very effectively. I had unique song choices for several dances and they went off without a hitch. I enjoyed that he asked about how strict our do not play list was, and if it would be ok for him to play some things not on our list if he felt the direction of the crowd's choices varied from our own. He definitely came from a perspective that wanted to create a fun environment for all, and not one that just wanted to challenge our choices. I liked that he planned ahead for the guests wanting something else and got our opinion ahead of time. We didn't have much variation from our requests as the crowd did love the music. I got many kudo's on the playlist throughout the night. He also did an amazing job at playing big band/50's music during dinner without only playing Frank Sinatra as requested. He was effective at keeping me informed at the chain of events, reminding me of activities coming up (dances, bouquet toss, etc) and was present but not overwhelming. He was polite, friendly and fun to talk to. I had my wedding in the off season and I was so pleased that we received a lower pricing tier because of this. They also went above and beyond on lighting and uplighting and the effect was much bigger than I originally anticipated. It really created a beautiful atmosphere in the venue. As musicians and coming from a family of musicians, music was extremely important to us and we would say they definitely met and even exceeded many of our expectations.

We could not have asked for a better dj for our wedding! We couldn't believe how many people were on the dance floor. My 80 year old grandpa was even out there! I would definitely recommend them to everyone that I know! Our venue even asked for information because they thought it was that great.

Overall Double Platinum DJ provided great service for our wedding. The setup and uplighting were absolutely beautiful, and he did a great job introducing the wedding party. He also communicated with us regularly and went above and beyond to help us set up and start our slideshow. He had a great personality and interacted well with the crowd.

The DJ was very flexible in making some last minute changes and in responding to texts and emails. However, my husband and I had painstakingly made a list of songs we wanted to hear, but the DJ only played about half of them. He played some country and boy band songs instead, which the crown didn't respond to, since our list was mainly 80's and 90's songs. I recommend making a "must play" list if you definitely want to hear songs, because there were some very special songs we didn't get to hear and I assumed he would play more from our list.

Our guests keep raving about how amazing our DJ was along with our light up dance floor. We got the 20x20 which was soooo worth it. We also had our ceremony outdoors and they also did that for us, loved it. Our uplighting, lighted "S" and crystal backdrop was out of this world beautiful. My pictures are amazing and people just can't get enough of how amazing it was, which was with the help of Double Platinum DJ. Thank you Bill and your team!

We had Double Platinum do our wedding reception at Cuvee in Milwaukee. Our DJ was Tyler. They do a great job of catering everything to your specific needs, and desires. Tyler asked questions, and made sure to get everything 100 % perfect. He had the dance floor packed from start to finish. We are overall extremely happy with the service provided by Double Platinum.
