Dan gave me a fantastic deal, and was super understanding about my husband and I being on a strict budget which I totally appreciated. That being said, I was a little put off by the professionalism. There was a last minute debacle about who was actually coming to Dj my wedding and it changed once again the morning of and was causing much unneeded stress. Also, I had agreed to my entrance song being played a certain way and that didn't happen, so I will forever remember walking down the aisle to the wrong music and being mad about it. Of course that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but it upset me. Dan, the owner, played great music the rest of the reception and did a good job keeping the crowd up and entertained, so on the whole he was good and I'm glad I didn't pay more for the service.

DRM Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Hello Suzanne,
Thank you for the review. Upon reading it I apologize that we played the wrong song while you were walking down the Isle. In 13 years of having DRM Entertainment and doing 100's of weddings I have never done that. So it was just an honest mistake. We take our Wedding's seriously. As for all the changes of the Wedding DJ the Scheduled DJ called me just a few hours before and said he had car problems and could not go. So I had to leave a family party, go load my stuff and travel over 1 hour in the Big snow storm we were having. We did make it though and overall thought it was a success. Sorry again.

Dan did the DJ entertainment for our back yard wedding. He did an awesome job keeping people entertained and dancing. He played everything we asked him to. He coordinated with photographer and caterer to make sure everyone was on the same page. We really felt like we got a good deal having Dan DJ our wedding. Even leading up to the wedding he stayed in touch with us to make sure if we had questions we had them answered. I would recommend Dan for any event. My brother and his fiance liked his services so much they are thinking about using him for their February wedding.

Dan is the consummate professional DJ. When we shopped around for a DJ for our wedding, we were referred to DRM Entertainment by several friends and acquaintances. Dan was very friendly, responsive and accommodating to our requests, which really put us at ease. He played great music and there was no hint of 'cheesiness'. We recommend most highly DRM Entertainment for weddings or any occasion.

Bryan was our DJ and he was fantastic! He read the crowd and kept the party going, took requests, played as many of our "must have" songs as possible (unfortunately our dinner ran super long so we had 45 minutes less of dancing time, not the DJs fault), AND played the Hawks theme song after they won (our family is full of Hawks fans so we all loved it). Professional, friendly, great price (we negotiated and paid early which saved us some money), good sense of humor and definitely understanding of the stresses that come with planning a wedding. Would definitely recommend to future wedding planners.

Dan was very responsive and listened to exactly what we wanted for our small wedding. He asked a lot of questions to make sure he understood and continuously reassured us he would make our reception fun. His event planning form online was very easy to use. His equipment and lighting was top notch and everyone danced the night away and had sooo much fun! He was on time and did a great job! Would recommend him for any event!

We heard multiple guests say: "We've never seen so many people dance at a wedding!" and this was not coincidence. Dan provided awesome music and set the tone for a perfect night. He was also ultra responsive when my Wife and I would ask question prior to the wedding. What a great experience we had with DRM and Dan is truly a great guy!

Just a really great experience. The owner Dan was sincere and helpful. I had never hired a DJ before and knowing that this was for my wedding made it exceptionally important. Luckily, their experience made things a breeze. Our DJ even blocked a weird guest from making a long speech, so that was the icing on the cake.

Strongly recommend DRM for your events!

Dan was awesome! He was very well organized, prompt, professional and really reasonably priced. He did a great job, and we would 100% recommend him to anyone. He played all of our song requests, and kept people on the dance floor. He will work to accommodate any of your requests, and he worked very well with all of our other vendors.
