We had Fred helping us for our wedding and he was great. He responded to all emails very promptly. We wanted some pretty specific Italian songs and he found what we were looking for. But he really proved his attentiveness during the reception itself. He saw that myself and my wedding party were caught up in conversations when our main course was served, so he called for us to come sit so we could still enjoy our food hot. People who never dance at weddings were on the dance floor. I would recommend him to anyone!

DJ Clark Sillery did an excellent job at our wedding. We sent him a pretty detailed list of songs that we wanted played at different points during our cocktail hour and reception and he worked them all in perfectly. Clark also did a good job of organizing the wedding party for their introduction at the ceremony. He was also willing to stay and play some more mellow music as our guests ate cake and filed out. The dance floor was always busy and I was very happy with Clark's ability to work in the songs we requested. I would fully recommend him for your wedding!

James McNally is FANTASTIC! He is a professional who truly loves his job and takes great pride in his work. He ensured everything went smoothly - above and beyond the music. Prior to my Dad walking me down the aisle, James made sure that I was comfortable and ready to go. He also ensured that we had some much needed food during the reception. Everyone danced the entire reception and had a great time, thanks in large part to James! I would HIGHLY recommend James for any wedding or other event!

DJ: James McNally
Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys

DJ James McNally is AMAZING. We had James as a DJ for our wedding this summer and he did an incredible job. We initially met James a few months prior to the wedding to review need to know information. He was informative and professional, we liked him from the start. During the wedding he played all songs requested, and the other music played was fantastic. He really did an amazing job. He is enthusiastic and definitely knows how to get a party started. It is apparent James loves his job.

Aside from playing great music, James orchestrated the entire event from start to finish. We had forgotten to unload the appetizers, he took initiative and unloaded them. Words cannot express how grateful we are at the amazing job James did.

Thank you so much James you are great!

We had Clark as our DJ for our 8/9 wedding, and he was GREAT! We had about 100 guests, and they were all the dancin' type... Clark played great choices of songs and kept everyone going the entire night (until 11pm!). I would HIGHLY recommend Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys and Clark Sillery for your wedding (or any other event that includes dancing!)

We had James McNally as our DJ and he couldn't have been more helpful! James went through our full list of music that we specifically did want, or didn't want and was incredibly accommodating. He was able to do a 2nd set up for our ceremony which was outside and then his main set up in the barn for our reception.

There was even a few points when we found him sweeping the floor! Above and beyond the call of duty in my eyes! James was professional from the start, and during the wedding he approached me (the groom) to check whether a guest's request was appropriate as we had set some guidelines for what we wanted during our wedding. Couldn't recommend James enough!

Fred was the DJ for our wedding in Kennebunk, ME, and we could not have been happier with him. The ceremony was outdoors and Fred mic-ed the event perfectly. It was a windy afternoon, but there was absolutely no interference--everyone said they could hear us loud and clear. At the reception, Fred played exactly the right music. We had met with him and talked several times before the event, so he had a good sense of our style. By the second song of the night, everyone was up and dancing. It was a great party and Fred deserves a lot of the credit for that. I'd highly recommend using Fred for any event. He's a true professional who does his job well.

James was our DJ and he was absolutely fantastic! He was responsive to emails during the planning and delivered on the the wedding day. James listened to our ideas for play lists, found two songs unfamiliar to him for us and made helpful suggestions for the anniversary song and for how to handle guest requests. Additionally, he was able to tap into the venues sound system (which we were told might not be a possibility) so that his music was played in every room, including in the bridal suite before the ceremony. After dinner, he helped us get things moving so that the dancing could begin as soon as possible. Once on the dance floor, my husband and I never left! All of our guests loved the music and it was evident by the packed dance floor. We cannot thank James enough for adding to our perfect day.

I can't say enough good things about Fred. He's extremely responsive, he provides an amazing service and is very very affordable. He was the DJ at a few weddings that we had attended before, including my sisters wedding, so we already knew that he was talented, and that he could provide different genres of music depending on each couples' style.

Our wedding was a bit unique, we are a same-sex couple who had a non-christian ceremony, in addition to that my husband is from another country, Fred listened to us, and was able to add music from my husband's country to make my in-laws happy, and he had a lot of experience with our type of ceremony as well.

I definitely recommend him for anyone who wants a wedding with great music!

Fred was our DJ for our York, Maine wedding. We cannot say enough good things about him and the quality of his service. He was so responsive and easy to communicate with that planning the wedding from far away was so easy. We are pretty picky about music and the one thing we asked was to mix it up and get everyone dancing. He did a great job with our music and had everyone at our wedding dancing! I would recommend using him if your having a wedding in the area.

DJ Fred was our DJ at our wedding this past weekend. We are both from York, Maine so we wanted to find a DJ who was local as well. We contacted Fred through email and got talking. We met up a few times to go over details, which Fred was very helpful with. Once our wedding got closer, he contacted us and we met up one last time before the big day to go over little details. The day of the wedding he went to the reception early to set up, then worked all day and night long playing all of the music we spoke about, plus many more songs he felt would keep the crowd dancing. He had some excellent song selections! After the wedding I have had several family and friends mention to me how awesome our DJ was and that they had so much fun dancing the night away. Thank you Fred!

DJ Fred is so much more than a 'DJ', he is a musical wedding consultant. After meeting with Fred for an hour and receiving an education on what works and what does not, we decided to leave our music selection in his hands. We were not disappointed. Fred created a musical backdrop the framed the day and had every guest dancing from the beginning to the end and beyond. I would not hesitate to use Fred again and would highly recommend Fred for your wedding or party needs.

DJ Clark Sillery has years of experience. He is at the top of his game. Calm, flexible, and a wonderful, Clark is the kind of DJ who makes weddings, special days already, unforgettable. We highly recommend him.

With just over a month to go before our wedding, we discussed with Clark all of the details that go into making a wedding happen. This is when Clark's skill really started to show. His insights and suggestions helped us organize the reception, from the bridal party entrance to the final dance. After picking all of the songs we wanted Clark to play, we asked him to take care of the rest - play whatever music he thought the crowd would respond to.

When we arrived at the Ocean Gateway, there was no great place to wait (and eat and drink) before the bridal entrance, so we just walked inside and waited towards the back (if you've been there, or are planning to have your reception there, we were just inside the main doors). Clark came up to us, said hello and told us he was ready whenever we were. Ten minutes later, he played our entrance song and the reception kicked off spectacularly. Amazingly, none of this was planned, but Clark orchestrated it perfectly. I don't remember exactly how we signaled to him that we were ready, and yet however we did it, he picked up on it and took it from there. That's what is great about having someone with Clark's experience - he can make anything work. After the formal dances, Clark invited everyone onto the dance floor, with the sun setting in the background. And we danced. And danced. And danced. I recall no less than three spontaneous "DJ Clark! DJ Clark!" cheers because Clark was so in-tune with our group (a mostly 25-35 crowd, I should note) that they couldn't help but applaud him. He kept the dance floor packed all night, playing a great mix of old school classics and new songs. Clark gave us the perfect reception. We loved working with him, and we know you will too. Thank you DJ Clark!

DJ Clark Sillery has years of experience. He is at the top of his game. Calm, flexible, and a wonderful, Clark is the kind of DJ who makes weddings, special days already, unforgettable. We highly recommend him.

With just over a month to go before our wedding, we discussed with Clark all of the details that go into making a wedding happen. This is when Clark's skill really started to show. His insights and suggestions helped us organize the reception, from the bridal party entrance to the final dance. After picking all of the songs we wanted Clark to play, we asked him to take care of the rest - play whatever music he thought the crowd would respond to.

When we arrived at the Ocean Gateway, there was no great place to wait (and eat and drink) before the bridal entrance, so we just walked inside and waited towards the back (if you've been there, or are planning to have your reception there, we were just inside the main doors). Clark came up to us, said hello and told us he was ready whenever we were. Ten minutes later, he played our entrance song and the reception kicked off spectacularly. Amazingly, none of this was planned, but Clark orchestrated it perfectly. I don't remember exactly how we signaled to him that we were ready, and yet however we did it, he picked up on it and took it from there. That's what is great about having someone with Clark's experience - he can make anything work. After the formal dances, Clark invited everyone onto the dance floor, with the sun setting in the background. And we danced. And danced. And danced. I recall no less than three spontaneous "DJ Clark!

I just got married over the weekend and I could not be happier with our DJ --- JAMES MCNALLY!!! He was awesome. We were able to meet him with him a few months prior to the wedding to let him know the types of music that we did and did not want. The night of the wedding he played all the music we had requested and then lots more! He kept everyone on the dance floor ALL night long! I had so many people (including our photographer) tell us they had never seen a dance floor stay packed ALL night at a wedding reception. I think a huge part of that is thanks to James for playing such awesome music and playing what the crowd loved! Not only was James amazing, he also had some sweet dance moves!!! You can tell that James really loves his job! Not only is he making sure everyone else is having fun but you could also tell he was having a really good time! I had several people from our wedding rave about James and what a great DJ he was. Both my husband and I agree! He was perfect!!! I would highly recommend him if you want to ensure a fun night of dancing!! Thanks for providing such wonderful services, James!

DJ Fred was awesome! He was so friendly and great to work with leading up to the wedding. At the wedding he kept the dance floor packed and played all kinds of fun music. We are a younger couple and had a lot of our friends at the wedding and they loved it, but he also mixed in some older music to appeal to relatives. Everyone had a great time.
He kept the fun mood flowing all night. We were sad when the night was over. We could have stayed all night!

Picking DJ Fred was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding, hands down. He is so much fun to work with and was very accommodating with our schedules since we were from out of town. DJ Fred knows exactly what he is doing and is able to read the crowd so well in order to create the perfect party for you and your guests. I can't remember a time during our reception where the dance floor wasn't packed, and our guests still rave about him and what a great job he did. We can't thank DJ Fred enough for giving us the best dance party and memories that will last a lifetime.

My husband and I really cannot say enough about our experience with James McNally of Frank Pappalardo DJs! From the beginning James was always willing to accomodate to our needs and he was very flexible with meeting with us! I booked James from the first meeting and knew he would be a great fit for our barn wedding that we had on October 12, 2013 of this year! He quickly responded to all of my emails and answered all of my annoying little questions being a bride. He was always open to what I was looking for and was willing to meet whenever needed!! We booked James about a year and 1/2 in advance for our wedding and i am SO glad that we did! He met with us and planned all of our ceremony music and reception music- from all the specific songs we wanted to just telling him he could do whatever he wanted! He was on time- accurate and worked with our venue. Our wedding day was exceptional with the help of James from Frank Pappalardo DJs. Our ceremony was outside and he set up a small set there for ceremony and cocktail hour and then inside he was very organized and even had a tide to go pen when i got BBq sauce on my dress! (these are the little things that i will always remember) THANK YOU JAMES for making our wedding day so amazing! i highly highly recommend him to any brides out there!!! - Joellen and Michael Gallant

We had our wedding at Union Bluff meeting house on 10/5/13. Where do I begin.....DJ Fred was absolutely amazing!!! From the second he began playing the dance floor was packed. He knew exactly what to play and when in order to keep the dance floor crowded! Everything from oldies to goodies! We have a lot of family from Ireland so we gave him a list of Irish songs to dance to and he was able to play all requested songs! He even played a few songs after the night was over to accommodate one last request. The amount of compliments we have received over the past few days on how fun our wedding was is overwhelming! I would highly recommend DJ Fred to anyone who wants a fun, lively dance party at their wedding!

He contacted us well before the wedding and went over every last detail. He even gave us lists of the top songs for each dance to helps us along. I updated him a day before the wedding with last minute changes, and without a problem he executed if flawlessly.
During the reception, he went above and beyond to make sure we were on cue for everything! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Everyone at the wedding commented about how great the DJ was!!!

Clark Sillery provided the music for both our ceremony and wedding reception. He was wonderful to work with. We are from Boston but got married in Maine. Clark was willing to meet us half way on week nights and weekends. He worked with a family member who wanted to perform during the ceremony and we didn't even have to be involved. Clark took all of our requests (some were obscure) and mixed in his own taste, keeping the dance floor packed all night. Would definitely recommend him.

We met Fred at an expo in Kennebunkport early in our wedding planning process. We wanted an DJ who was fun but professional, not someone who was too crazy and involved in the actual party. Fred was clearly experienced and a great guy who knew how to get the party started without interfering with our guests. He put me at ease when it came to timing and details, and I never had to wonder when anything (first dance, cake cutting, etc) was going to happen. He played all of the songs we requested, and was flexible with changes in events during the reception. I would recommend Fred to anyone!

I have nothing but positive things to say about DJ Fred!! We got married on Sept. 14th at The Meeting House in York and he had people on the dance floor even before we served our first course!! There wasn't one song he played that wasn't a hit. He did a great job at reading our crowd (who was ready to party) and he also made sure to coordinate the whole night with our photographer and the onsite wedding planner to ensure that every special moment was captured and that things ran smoothly. Fred is very professional and fun to work with - we really felt like we got to know him over the course of our wedding planning, which put us at ease the night of our wedding. He was patient with us (even when we were scheduling late night calls with him during the week) and really took the time to understand how we wanted the night to go - and it was perfect!! We really found a friend in DJ Fred and would recommend him to anyone.

My musician husband instantly liked clark knowing he wasn't just a DJ. He is a musician and respects many genres of music. Clark leads the wedding events with such ease. He helps transition moments and create or keep moments lively ! Overall. Super happy with Clark. He came highly recommended and we are so glad he was apart of our wedding dream team. :)

James DJ'd our wedding at Stage Neck Inn and he was awesome - everyone had a great time. From the beginning of the ceremony with the music to kick off my junior bridesmaid walking down the aisle to the last dance of the evening, James was fun, extremely professional, and really made the entire wedding flow. A few of our guests plain won't dance, but James kept them entertained and having a fun time like the rest of us. James knows how to read the crowd and play the right mix of music for young and more mature guests. One gentleman said he hadn't danced like that since 1968, and my 83 year old Mom was dancing with her walker and beaming with happiness. Our photographer Ernie (Acclaim) managed to capture the fabulous time we had, including a great shot of James - master DJ in action :). Many thanks for the time of our lives, it was unforgettable.

Fred was the DJ at my daughter's wedding at Stage Neck. He spent so much time with me on the phone initially helping me out with the wedding by making helpful suggestions etc. He was also quick to respond to her questions over the course of the year. I have had numerous compliments on the wedding, and my daughter and I think he did a wonderful job! He continually kept her posted with the night's schedule. Everybody was dancing all night long, the dance floor was packed and I get a kick out of the pictures. Everyone is laughing, acting crazy and having a ball!! Very upbeat! I will hire him for my younger daughter's wedding as well.

Fred Pappalardo provided the ceremony and reception music for our wedding. Since my now husband and I are from two different cultures, we demanded a diverse music array from Fred. We provided Fred with a few CDs he wouldn't have been able to obtain through his media outlets. Fred was, however, able to obtain the musical my husband requested that I was unable to find anywhere. Fred broke up the music selection and all of my guests were on the dance floor throughout the night. As I glanced across the ballroom periodically throughout the night, even the wait staff was dancing. Fred managed to mix in all the genres of music we asked him to play seamlessly. Fred took great pride and care to make our wedding special and as unique as we wanted it to be. He seemed genuinely happy to be there DJing for our special day.

A few days after the wedding, we had 4 guests of the hotel come up to us and ask if we had the wedding the other night. They continued on by complimenting us on how great the DJ was and that they were n the dining room next door enjoying dinner and were dancing in their seats listening to it. I knew they weren't just saying it because I saw them when I peered through the doors from the ballroom into the dining room.

Clark DJ'ed our wedding and was great. He met with us weeks beforehand to go over our very specific playlist and was able to obtain any songs he didn't already have. The night of the wedding he did exactly what we asked and was very communicative when we had to alter the playlist due to time constraints. We would recommend him to anyone getting married in the area. He really helped keep the party going and was a pleasure to work with.

Clark was the DJ at our wedding in Southern Maine this summer. He was a pleasure to work with. He had every song we asked for and did not seem to find it odd that I wanted to walk down the aisle to TOOL. He even made some great last minute adjustments when it turned our we had less dancing time than anticipated. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding or party DJ!

We feel so incredibly lucky to have had Clark Sillery as our DJ!! He truly went far beyond our expectations for a good DJ. Throughout the planning process, Clark was a pleasure to work with. He is very laid back and flexible, but also able to provide great suggestions and take the lead when asked. On the day of, our reception (at the Dockside Restaurant) was flawless, with Clark smoothly and pleasantly guiding everyone along the way. And the most telling sign of a great DJ... He had our guests dancing from before dinner, all the way through the night, and there wasn't a person there who didn't at least make an appearance on the dance floor (and most never left)! We have received nothing but enthusiastic praise for Clark from all of our family and friends. Clark, we really cannot thank you enough for everything!! We would (and have been) recommending you to anyone and everyone:)

We had James McNally as our DJ for our ceremony and reception and he was absolutely terrific. Everyone has pretty much said it all about him already in these reviews and they are telling the truth. He was very responsive from the first contact with him and continued right up until the wedding day which, as you know, is very important as the day gets closer and things get more frantic. He played everything right on time and at perfect volumes for both ceremony and reception. I think one of the biggest benefits is that James was more than the DJ, he ran the reception perfectly. He made sure we got our food and had a chance to eat and then made sure as we were walking around the tables that we didn't spend too much time at any table so we could see all the guests and still have time for dancing. These seem like small things but on your wedding day your mind is all over and it is priceless having someone who does this all the time there helping you along with time management. We were told by guest for weeks after how much they enjoyed his music and personality as well which I think says something. I truly can not give James enough praise for what a great job he did at our wedding and I HIGHLY suggest anyone looking for a GREAT DJ in Southern Maine to give James McNally a call first!

Even with little direction from our part, his music choices were great and our guests were dancing ALL NIGHT LONG!!!! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our most special day!

What a fabulous choice Fred was for our wedding DJ! He came highly recommended by so many people: the York Harbor Inn staff where we held our wedding, our photographer, the makeup person, the florist, the woman who made our cake, to name just a few. As one of them said after we told him we booked with Fred: "You've already hit a home run choosing him." And we could not agree more. He was so wonderful and so much fun to work with - he even enjoyed my whole family coming to his home to meet him! He surprised us by helping with the maid of honor's toast by putting together and playing audio clips from her answering machine messages! That was a big hit! The music was even better than we imagined and captured the whole happy, upbeat mood of the day. We would highly, highly recommend Fred for any event!

We had James McNally DJ our wedding reception on May 4, 2013 at the Regatta Room in Eliot, ME. Right from the first phone call made to him, James was always prompt, professional, easy going, and flexible with all requests made. James took his time to sit with us before the wedding and layout all the details of how the night went, which was extremely helpful in making sure other vendors (photographer, photo booth, cake) were right on schedule with the layout. James introduced the bridal party with a loud and enthusiastic voice and ensured that the whole night went smoothly. James checked in with us several times to ensure that not only did we stay on track, but to see if there were any last minute requests or changes needed. When it was time to dance, the dance floor stayed packed for the entire night which is exactly what we wanted. We didn't want the night to end! Thank you James for helping us make our wedding day an absolute blast!

Fred was excellent - and he made my wedding awesome! I actually had planned an 80's casino ballroom wedding. I made a list of all the 80's songs I liked to hear and then Fred came up with others also. He was very responsive to planning the list. His equipment was awesome and he let us use the microphone and amp system for the ceremony so we did not have to bring in other equipment. He had a great time playing everything we asked and I would highly recommend him.

We used DJ Fred for our October 27th wedding at the Union Bluff Meeting House. Booking the DJ was probably the vendor that we both stressed out about the most when planning our wedding. The DJ can make or break a wedding, especially when you hope to have a fun, dance-the-night-away type of wedding. I was hesitant to book DJ Fred because he is on the preferred vendor list for the Meeting House. Call me crazy, but while planning the wedding I was hesitant to use any vendors off of the preferred vendor list because you never know what prearranged deal the venue and vendor have with one another. So, we searched and searched, 56 cheesy websites later, a couple lame phone interviews and 45 unanswered emails to other DJ companies I decided to give DJ Fred a call. After one short phone call I knew he was our guy. He has been in the industry for years and that showed while working with us. He was professional, friendly, reasonably priced and kept the everyone at the wedding reception dancing. He played a wide variety of music, (we told him to play what he wanted, just judge the crowd) and he kept everyone off their feet. Side note, he also did our uplighting which came out amazing. Would I recommend DJ Fred to someones else? YES, YES, YES!!! Thank you DJ Fred.

I called three of his references and they prepared me for what I was about to find out.... he was outstanding! Very professional, very cool. He obviously loves what he does. He was singing and dancing along to every song he played! He was fantastic at introducing the wedding party and keeping the party going. He met with us a month before the big day and the three of us came up with a game plan, which James stuck to perfectly. He is a great guy and the perfect DJ for any occasion.

DJ Fred was offered as part of the package from our wedding venue. I did a lot a research to decide whether to go with him or not, and all the reviews that I read were right - he's the best! We worked with Fred for both our ceremony and our reception; he was extremely patient and helpful in choosing the music for the ceremony and we left the reception up to him. EVERYBODY danced ALL night, and couldn't stop talking about what a great job he did. I'd highly recommend him to anyone planning an event in the area.

DJ Fred was amazing! He did the music for our ceremony and reception and everything was perfect! He is truly wonderful at what he does. He really listened to everything we wanted (and didn't want) and our dance floor was packed the entire night. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Working with him was such a joy. Thank You DJ Fred!

James McNally was the DJ for our wedding and we cannot say enough about how amazing he was throughout the entire process. He was incredibly accommodating as we selected our music and planned out the day, while also providing many useful tips and music ideas when we were unsure of certain aspects of the event. He was professional, thoughtful and wonderfully entertaining from the start of the wedding right up until the last song was played. We loved his flexibility and engaging nature, and were equally impressed by his killer dance moves and that he seemed to know the words to EVERY single song:) Wow!! So many of our friends and family commented that he was THE BEST dj they have ever seen at a wedding...and we agree!! Thank you James!!!

James McNally was the DJ for our wedding at the York Golf and Tennis Club this past June. His services were tremendously professional, and he made sure our wedding reception was a blast! He brought a lot of energy and played great music all night. About a month before the wedding, my wife and I were able to meet with James to go over the entire ceremony and reception. This was a tremendous help. It got us a chance to get to know James a little bit, as well as let him know what kind of things we were looking for. Again, his professionalism and energy were top notch and much appreciated. I would highly recommend his services. Thanks James!!!

My husband and I LOVE DJ Fred!! He came highly recommended from our wedding venue's list of preferred vendors and now we too can attest to his amazing service as a DJ. We'd contracted with him long before our wedding and that process was very simple. We deposited a portion at the time on contract and paid the rest a few weeks before the wedding. We met with him a few weeks before the wedding at his home in York, and he was so pleasant and fun to talk to. And he also is very experienced with weddings and understands the flow of receptions, no matter the venue or amount of people. He is also familiar with many venues in his area and knew the ins and outs of our venue (Union Bluff & Meeting House) better than us - that was comforting to know going into it. He was accommodating with all of our requests for ceremony music and reception songs, and gave us some advice as to how to choose what to play and what not to play. The sound quality during our ceremony sounded great, and I would say that the reception music and mood throughout could not have been better. Fred played a great mix of our requests, other requests and all-around great dance music. Oldies but goodies, as well as contemporary pop hits. My aunt had also given him a detailed list of songs my family wanted to request and he even checked in with me to make sure they were okay with us. And he also moved things along perfectly with our toasts, our first dance and my dance with my dad. (Oh - one piece of advice...if you have a choreographed first dance, make sure you tell Fred when to start your song. We forgot to tell him to wait for our cue, and he started our song before we got out to the floor...and we had to cut it and start over. Wasn't an issue...we just totally forgot to mention it!) He also offers really cool lighting options and a monogram option. We opted for blue uplighting that looked amazing with our blue colors. And other dance floor lights and discoball effects are already included. Fred is an amazing DJ to do business with and he'll be sure to make your reception fun and entertaining!

I was married on June 23 at the Dockside Inn and Guest Quarters--it was a day wedding. Clark did an amazing job. We met with him before hand and had a lot of opinions on the music. However the day of we were really running behind schedule so quick adaptations needed to be made! Clark made them easily, seamlessly, and he made a lot of them on his own. I may or may not have had a mini meltdown after which he promised me that my guests would have an amazing time and he would make sure every one danced. We actually danced way more than I ever thought and he made sure to play all of the songs I really wanted to hear. He also took a firm stand against a family member who was adament that her song should be played instead of the few last songs. Clark did an absolutely amazing job and everyone is still talking about how much dancing we did. I would recommend him to everyone!!!!!!

Aaron and I were lucky enough to have Clark provide our music for our wedding reception on June 16, 2012 at The Red Barn in South Berwick Maine. Our music was absolutely perfect throughout the entire night. Clark was so flexible about our changes in music for our bridal party entrances and was great about playing the songs that we had requested. The best part was that Clark was so professional and flexible throughout the entire night. He was awesome making sure that specific songs were played throughout the night. There wasnt a song that we didnt want to dance to! My husband and I would definitely recommend Clark to anyone who is getting married. He was a huge part of our day and we cannot thank him enough!

Fred Pappalardo was the DJ for our wedding and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Going into our first meeting with hardly any ideas for music, Fred had many ideas on what kind of music would work for us. He had great suggestions from ceremony music, cake cutting songs and of course songs that were must plays at the reception. We put a lot of our reception in Fred's hands and couldn't have been happier. We would recommend DJ Fred to anyone looking for great DJ to keep the guests dancing all night long! Fred is a great guy and hard worker, he was wonderful to work with and anyone that uses him for their wedding will have a memorable night!

James McNally was the DJ for our wedding and he was fantastic. We would recommend him to anyone, he was extremely helpful well always remaining professional. When we sat down to plan out the music for the night we laid a lot of the set list in his hands and when we where stuck on a particular song to play during certain parts of the reception he was able to help us find the perfect song, he even suggested different games to help us get our guests more involved. Through out the night he played the perfect selection of music at the right times and he did not disappoint us with the selection. The music he chose was a hit with all the different age groups that attended, we couldn't have asked for anything more... Definitely 5 stars!

I HIGHLY recommend DJ Fred to anyone and everyone! I truly believe that the DJ is one of the most important vendors for a wedding, since the DJ who is going to set the tone for the wedding! We wanted our wedding to be a party, and for people to be up dancing the whole time, and DJ Fred really did that. The venue even said that they had never seen a wedding where people were dancing that early in the night! Fred also knew how to read the crowd, and put in some slow songs here and there. He also blended older generation music with newer songs so that all generations were out on the dance floor!

We had DJ Fred at our wedding. He was AMAZING! He played the perfect mix of songs. Because of the weather we had some logistically challenges in that we had to take photos during our reception - despite us pulling out large numbers of people at a time, he kept the dance floor going and everyone has raved about the music selections. Fred did a great job of mixing in some of our obscure requests with songs that everyone knows and loves. What I really appreciated was that while Fred was more than willing to meet with us in person, we lived far from the venue and opted to talk over the phone. After filling out his checklist and having a conversation on the phone, Fred really understand the vibe we were going for. I was more than confident that he would make our reception an absolute blast and I was not disappointed. The dancing was the highlight of the wedding for me and I keep thinking back to those moments and smiling. He truly made our wedding a night we will never forget and we could not be happier with him as our DJ. I should also point out that both Mike and I are not typically dancers and he had us out there all night. THANK YOU FRED - YOU ARE THE BEST!

James McNally, was the DJ for our wedding and I couldn't be happier! He provided the music for the ceremony as well as our reception. We didn't want to use traditional wedding theme songs for our ceremony and had found a couple obscure songs on YouTube that James was able to extract and use. He was very patient with us in our meeting with him and had some really great ideas. He worked with us to make our day a fun and memorable one. He adjusted seemlessly to requests and really kept the party going and dancing. He looked like he was having fun too, dancing it up while he played songs! Honestly, I could not be happier with his performance and professionalism. I could sit here and write another paragraph about how I would highly recommend him, but that probably wouldn't do him justice. So if you are stuck deciding between James and someone else, GO WITH JAMES! You will be glad you did.

James McNally was the DJ for our wedding on September 10, 2011 in Alton, NH. He provided the music for both the ceremony and reception. James was open to our creativity in playing Star Wars theme songs recorded by the Boston Pops during our ceremony. He adjusted easily to last minute changes made on the day of the wedding. We also gave James a list of over 50 songs we wanted played over the course of our wedding day. He was very thorough and reviewed each song with us thus making suggestions about what would be appropriate music for cocktail hour, dinner music, and dance music. The catering staff even commented to us about how fantastic our DJ was compared to other wedding venues. Our guests were excited to see James having a good time as he mouthed the lyrics to songs and showed that he loved his job!

We booked Doug Bounds through Fred Pappalardo DJs. Doug was great! We met with him the week before the wedding and went over what our general likes and dislikes were. On the day of the wedding he did an absolutely great job reading the crowd and keeping everyone on the dance floor all night long! He has a great personality and does a great job getting the party going while not being obtrusive at all (I don’t like DJs that talk a lot). He worked seamlessly with the coordinator at our venue to make sure the first dances, cake cutting, etc all flowed well. And he had a smile on his face the whole time. I’d recommend Doug to any couple!

Our DJ, James McNally, was so fantastic. I would very highly recommend him!! He was great to work with, flexible, fun and gave very good suggestions when we were stuck on some of our wedding song choices. The wedding was so much fun, he did a great job MCing and keeping us informed of things like when to cut our cake, do special dances, etc. So many wedding guests commented on how great the DJ was doing and the good variety of music he played. He's got a great sense of humor, and I just cannot say enough about how comfortable we felt with him on the mic! Thank you so much James!! I would absolutely hire you again if and when we ever throw a big event.

Fred was great for us. The price that he quoted to us was all inclusive and straightforward along with being very reasonable for a 5 hour reception. He kept the crowd dancing and entertained and throughout the process was very professional, thorough and made sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it. He even accommodated a last minute flash mob that my friends had decided to put together switching in their CD with ease and with no suspicion to anyone else whatsoever. We were very happy with his services and now no why he is known generally as the best DJ in Maine!

James McNally, one of the DJs with Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys, did our wedding on 8/13/2011 and we can't speak more highly of him. He was fun and personable, and always professional. He made himself completely available to us, responded very quickly to emails and communication, and his rate was extremely reasonable. As far as the music goes, he gave us as much control as we wanted and was there with plenty of song ideas when we had none! He paid attention to every detail, he even spoke with everyone in the wedding party personally to make sure he had the right pronunciation of their names. Our ceremony/reception went SO smoothly, and we do owe a lot of that to James.

If you're getting married, or need a DJ, Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys are a favorite for New Englanders, but ask for James McNally, he knows what's up!

We had our wedding at the Union Bluff Meeting House in York beach, Maine on 8/12/11 and Fred Pappalardo was included in our package, which I was excited about because I had contacted Fred a few months prior to get information since I had heard great reviews! Fred was so helpful and flexible during our music list meeting, because I am so not educated when it comes to music! He helped my sister coordinate our "Entrance Dance" with our wedding party which was a big hit! I have nothing but great reviews he kept our reception so fun, everyone was dancing all night, and the range of music was perfect to suit all of our guests! I would highly recommend Fred Pappalardo's DJ services for any wedding. Thank you so much for making our reception so fun! ~Christina and Patrick Giguere

As we planned our wedding we put the music as one of our top priorities. We wanted our reception to turn into a dance party and knew that if that was to happen we would need a DJ with the right vision and personality to execute it. Fred Pappalardo was that person. We knew right from the start he was the man for the job, and his professionalism, input, and flexibility only served to reassure us in our choice. He took our ideas and music selections and wove them into a fantastic playlist that evolved with the energy and requests of our guests. There was not one song that did not have at least a crowd (more often a mass) of people out on the dance floor having an awesome time. He was thorough in noting and following through with all the details we laid down for him and we could tell he sincerely wanted to give us a party to remember. Fred definitely has a talent for what he does, and we can’t thank him enough for helping to figuratively and literally deliver “the time of our lives” (Yes, that was the last song of evening, and it was perfect). Thanks Fred!

We hired the one and only DJ Fred for our wedding, and I am so glad we did! Before the wedding Fred had us fill out a comprehensive worksheet about our musical tastes and preferences. From there, Fred had a pretty good idea about my fiance (now husband) and myself. At the reception, Fred indulged us by playing retro lounge music during the cocktail hour - we had a 1960s Mad Men inspired wedding. At dinner he played vintage music from the 50s and 60s - early rock and roll, rat pack, etc. - absolutely perfect - people wanted to get up and dance during dinner - high praise indeed, because my family is all about food! After dinner, Fred lit up the floor - it was terrific - everyone was out there. We asked Fred not to play any of the cheesy wedding numbers (Chicken Dance, Electric Slide, etc.). To Fred's great credit, he played one song we had asked him not the play: "Shout" (c'mon - it's a wedding, not Animal House). Actually, it was brilliant - Fred took the pulse of the crowd, and played it. The dance floor was PACKED. Arms were thrown up in the air - knocking our paper lanterns everywhere - but it was AWESOME! That's what's so great about Fred - he makes sure everyone is having fun - he has an uncanny knack for keeping the mood just right. He is wonderful!

Not only did Clark make our wedding day special but he also made the planning a smooth free journey. Planning a wedding is so stressful and time consuming. Having to worry about music selection and coordinating with the DJ was something overwhelming for me. Clark made this process so easy for me and it made the world of a difference. I am a "do it yourself bride". I made all the decorations and took care of all the details. Having to choose the music was something I wasnt looking forward to it because it just seemed like ANOTHER task on my LONG list of things I needed to do. My husband and I live in New York. Our wedding was in Maine. I thought it would be so difficult to work with the DJ so that he had a good idea of the music we wanted etc. Music is everything for your wedding day. Sure, you can work hard at all the details for your wedding day, but if the music isnt what you want, your day can easily not turn out the way ou wanted to. Clark and I communicated via email. Anytime I send him an email he would respond right away. He took care of everything for me. He provided me with an outline which consisted of what music to choose during the introduction to the last dance; all I had to do was fill in the blanks. He gave me great advise on what to do, when to have our special dances and he paid attention to everything I wanted. I am so grateful that we choose him to be the DJ. His price we beyond reasonable and the quality of work was superb. I will always be forever grateful for him and his dedication to music/ wedding and building relationships with his couples. We had a double wedding which wasnt an easy task. There were double the amount of special dances and both couples had music requests. It seemed effortless for Clark to be able to make this happen. We are so happy with the results and to our surprise he made us CDs with all the music we choose for our special dances. He paid attention to ALL the details. Thank you Clark for your hard work and for the wonderful friend we found in you.

Dave Smith, one of Fred Pappalardo's disc jockeys, provided the music for our outdoor wedding ceremony, indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, and indoor dinner and dancing reception at Clay Hill Farm, in York, Maine. Dave was wonderful to work with; we had very specific ideas about the music we wanted for all aspects of the wedding, and he was very accommodating. He used music from some CD's we provided, but also obtained many specific pieces that we were not able to send him. He was professional, friendly, and laid-back. His timing during the ceremony was perfect, as he faded long pieces during entrances and exits, etc. He played the mix of jazz we had asked for during the cocktail hour, which was not his usual jazz set, and he tailored an hour of classical music for our dinner hour, again, not his usual dinner set. We are not a big party crowd, but he did manage to keep the dance floor fairly busy for most of the afternoon. It was a pleasure working with Dave, he is friendly, open, and professional, and very responsive to our requests. We would highly recommend him to anyone needing a DJ in the York, Maine area!

Fred is very organized and professional. Both my husband and I met with him prior to hiring him and found him to be the most professional of the DJ's we spoke with. I also felt as though he was easily accessible if I had questions or concerns and we had many opportunities to review the wedding plan with Fred prior to the event. We received many compliments through the course of the evening from our guests saying that he was a great DJ and the dance floor was never empty, which speaks of his talents. He did a great job reading the crowd and I would highly recommend DJ Fred to anyone looking for a DJ for their big event.

I worked with James McNally and he was an absolute joy to work with. I had done a lot of research online and made calls but I made my choice when I actually got to see his work at my soon to be (and now are) in laws anniversary party. He did an amazing job there and everyone had a LOT of fun. He was very clear when speaking and always had a smile on his face. He treated everyone with the utmost respect and the energy he offered to the room was exactly what I was looking for.

We did a formal-semi formal winter wedding with a modernized traditional theme. We had a few personalized odd requests and he was very open and had a lot of fun with. When I approached him at the end of the anniversary party he was very nice and patient while I told him our thoughts on dates and times and gave us his card and a quote on the spot. When we followed up a few months later after a bit more scouting he honored his quote as we knew he would and was very easy to talk with. We had a sit down meeting where he worked with us to form a plan for everything that would happen that day. He was very patient and played a LOT of music for us and had suggestions that he'd come up with based on talking with us. He was willing to totally personalize any and everything. He was very professional and easy to get a hold of. On the day of he was right on task even more so then myself lol! He did a great job of keeping the music soothing and soft during our formal sit down dinner but was great with getting everyone pumped when it came to dance time! He was very witty and even helped us to put together a game to play that got everyone laughing and having a blast. He took a lot of requests (including a lot from myself lol) and did a great job of keeping a nice wide variety of music as our families are rather eclectic in tastes. Everyone was able to have a lot of fun together. Which was exactly what we wanted :)

Over all I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! I'm really glad I got the chance to see him in action and picked him!

He was very patient and played a LOT of music for us and had suggestions that he'd come up with based on talking with us. He was willing to totally personalize any and everything. He was very professional and easy to get a hold of. On the day of he was right on task even more so then myself lol! He did a great job of keeping the music soothing and soft during our formal sit down dinner but was great with getting everyone pumped when it came to dance time! He was very witty and even helped us to put together a game to play that got everyone laughing and having a blast. He took a lot of requests (including a lot from myself lol) and did a great job of keeping a nice wide variety of music as our families are rather eclectic in tastes. Everyone was able to have a lot of fun together. Which was exactly what we wanted :)

Over all I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! I'm really glad I got the chance to see him in action and picked him! Read less

From the first meeting with Clark to the last song of the night we were so impressed with everything he did. Our first meeting was right at his home, the fact that he let us into his personal home to discuss our personal day was amazing. The music selections and the overall knowledge of the music made us feel so at ease. At our wedding Clark felt more like a friend then the DJ and we seriously can not wait for our next party (maybe my 30th?!) to meet up with him again. We can not thank Clark enough for everything and the CD with our wedding playlist on it was a surprising plus, absolutely amazing!!

After booking our wedding package, we met with our DJ, Fred P. Music selection was one of the most important things in the wedding planning process to me. I had a lot of requests and many genres of music that I wanted to incorporate(and not incorporate). Fred listened carefully to every single request I had made including researching and finding more obscure songs that were not easy to get copies of. He was enthusiatic about my music choices and made me feel confident he knew exactly the type of music I wanted. On the night of the wedding everything came together perfectly. Fred played the music for our ceremony as well as reception. He worked so well with our wedding coordinator, Justice of the Peace, and photographer to make sure everything was timed perfectly. At the reception, Fred played exactly the music I had requested and made sure to play my most important requests at the perfect time when I would be able to enjoy them. He incorporated classics, country, dance, a little reggae, and rock songs, and they all flowed together seamlessly. The dance floor was going all night with people of all ages. Everyone said our wedding was so much fun and they have never danced so much, and Fred deserves a lot of the credit! Great DJ and great service!!

OK, the ceremony is complete, and now it's time for the real test....how to keep a crowd participating in the festivities. We all know that the music sets the tone for the evening. These are the occasions that require a professional like Fred Pappalardo to read the dynamics of the crowd. A fantastic playlist, request willingness, proper volume control management, fun crowd interaction and top notch equipment separates Fred from the rest.I don't know what else to say other than Fred exceeded all our expectations. Great Job!!

The one thing my husband and I were most concerned about for our wedding - was the dancing! We found a BIG dance floor and then needed a DJ to keep the floor full all night!! Fred P came highly recommended from a friend who said he played great music and had affordable prices!! After our first meeting w/ him - I knew that we had made the right choice. He knows what he is doing! He is fun, personable, professional - he has great suggestions and absolutely read our crowd and kept everyone on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. He even played a few extra songs for us at the end AFTER our contracted time was up. It was above and beyond our expectations. We strongly believe that the music can make or break the night - and he shook us ALL NIGHT LONG!! THANKS FRED!!

Fred was terrific! He was very professional and helped guide the night along perfectly! He wasn't obtrusive, he made the event about us and entertained when necessary. We had a great time and so did all of our guests! We did not sit down once after dinner, everyone danced until the night was over. He played everything we wanted to hear and music genres we told him we liked (he knows all the best songs to get people moving!) It was a great night and we were so happy we went with Fred Pappalardo! Thanks Fred!

Our wedding was SO much fun! We would totally do it all over again! We worked with DJ Fred. When we were looking for DJs, we did not want any props and there were songs that we did not want to be played (and then a ton that we did)! DJ Fred was amazing at listening to all our requests and assuring us that it would be a blast. He was so great at editing our music to just how we wanted (we had a live version for our first dance song). Since our reception ended at 8PM, we were even able to book DJ Fred to play at our after-party! Our guests are still talking about what a great time they had and asking when we can do it again! The dance floor was always packed. DJ Fred did a great job of reading the crowd and making sure everyone was having fun. Thank you so much for everything! We would highly recommend working with DJ Fred!

I am delighted to have a place to write a review for James McNally who was the DJ for my partner and I's wedding on 9/12/10. Prior to the wedding, James spent time on a Sunday with us to help us pick out music for our wedding. When we met with him he was open to whatever music we wanted to play and had great ideas and suggestions for what we might like that we hadn't thought about or didn't even know about. He has an amazing amount of music to choose from. When it came time for planning how music would help our service flow, James was great at helping us pick music that was just perfect for the different parts of the wedding and reception. He was great at guiding the two of us through the wedding, moving the order of ceremony along smoothly from the beginnig of us walking down the isle, through making announcements, our first dance, etc. Neither of us ever being married before, he even helped teach us how to cut our wedding cake. Our guests found him to be friendly and helpful and thoroughly enjoyed watching him play music as they would find him quietly moving and singing to whatever he was playing at the time. We can honestly say that our wedding was truly a great time for us and our guests, in part, by having James be our DJ. He is a wonderful guy, knows his craft, is professional, respectful and is really responsive. When we have our 25th anniversary party... James, if you ever read these reviews... we're only calling you, because in our book... you're the best.

All everyone wanted to do was dance, dance during dinner, dance before, after, and during. I gave him so many obscure songs to play and he put together the most beautiful array of music i have ever heard. He knew exactly what we wanted and what we liked. It was such a fun wedding! and i have Fred to thank for all the booties shaking! He was great, im so glad we picked right.

James McNally came to us by recommendation, which can always be a chance, I am so glad we took that chance!!!! We could not have asked for a better DJ!
We had a large range of music we were looking for and a few odd requests and he managed them all! The specific music we were looking for that he didn't have when we met with him prior to the wedding, he had at the wedding, which we most appreciated!
He stayed late at a moments notice, since our guests stayed long past midnight and he never faltered, just kept on playing! I am so glad we took the advice of a stranger and plan on using James in the future!

Fred could not have come more highly recommended and he did not disappoint. He was friendly and professional throughout the process. He responded quickly, provided useful feedback, and could not have been more accommodating on the day of the wedding.

I took a chance and gave him very little instruction for "must plays" at the reception. I assumed that he knew better than I how to keep my guests on the dance floor and I was right. The only time we saw space at all on the dance floor were when he played a guest request!

At our wedding, we had the best time of our entire lives, and Doug Bounds from Fred Pappalardo DJs was a huge part of making that happen. Leading up to the wedding, we gave him an extensive list of what we wanted played (and what we didn't want played), and he figured out exactly what we were looking for. He was flexible, friendly, and was able to help us every step of the way. For us, the sign of a good DJ is when he fades into the background and everyone just enjoys the music. Doug did exactly that. He brought a top of the line sound system, played everything we wanted to hear and more, and he was subtle and understated. His prices are also more than reasonable - we got a great DJ without blowing our budget. Many guests approached us and told us how wonderful he was. We would highly recommend Doug to anyone looking for a DJ. Thanks, Doug!

I was very pleased to have James McNalley as a part of my wedding experience!!!!! Being an event coordinator, I was pleasantly surprised how organized James was compared to some of my other vendors. He was very on top of the details, and patient with my delayed responses during a very busy time in my life! My husband and I felt that he listened to all our concerns, and he provided excellent suggestions!!!

I was very specific about what I wanted, and I was very nervous that ANY person would be able to deliver.... considering all the details and playlists, and musicians performing and our large wedding party - he made it look easy!

THEN, our wedding ended around 10:15, and we told him that he was all set to leave for the night, and he insisted that he stayed until 11 because that's what he was paid for... even though we told him that he could go! So, he continued to dj while everyone cleaned up, and while family mingled.

Overall, he was very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very respectful, and you can tell that he loves what he does. All of our guests had an amazingggg time - I've heard from a number of people that it was the funnest wedding that they had ever been to, and I know that we would not have been able to achieve that without James.

We used Clark Sillery from Fred Pappalardo DJ's and couldn't have made a better choice. We liked Clark from the start! While we contracted with Clark long before the wedding, it was one of the last things that we got around to, meeting with Clark only days before our event (we live in VA)... Clark couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful. He worked with us on everything, including purchasing some out of the way songs that we requested.

Our wedding music was complimented by everyone, including the wedding coordinator at our reception location! We only had a small list of songs that we wanted to hear, and in addition to those Clark couldn't have picked a better line up!

We are so happy we selected Fred for our DJ. We originally had thought about another DJ, until we spoke to Fred. We were so happy with his rate and his professionalism. His experience shone through while he was explaining his services. He invested a lot of time for preparation with our music selections, making sure things went smoothly. We had a vocalist, and Fred worked with her for the ceremony. Everything went just as planned. He was awesome. He was so nice and very accomodating. He had the top of the line equipment!! The sound was incredible and clear but not too loud for our guests. He helped to make our day so special. Music was a big part of our day, and Fred understood that and really cared. Thank you so much Fred!!!

Fred was great. He kept our guests, young and old(er) out on the dance floor all night by mixing in music that he found the guests really dancing to. He listened to our must-plays and made the night very memorable for us and for our guests. Our guests loved the unique touches we put in by selecting different meaningful songs for entrance, dances, cake cutting, etc., and Fred played all of them for us. Music makes or breaks a party - Fred made ours. Thank you, Fred!

We used this DJ service and had a fantastic experience. James McNally was our DJ and he did an excellent job. He was very professional, but personable. He offered suggestions when we didn't know "which way to go" on entertainment matters, but he also really went the extra mile making us feel that it was OUR day. He worked with other vendors great, and just through an awesome party!! People had a lot of fun, and danced well into the night. I highly recommend Fred Pappalardo DJs and James McNally specifically.

We used DJ Clark Sillery from Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys service. He was amazing to work with! Very fun, easygoing, kept the dance floor packed with great music. We gave him quite a selection of songs that we wanted him to play,and he was totally fine with that. The music made our wedding perfect! We did not stop dancing at all! Everyone could ask requests and he played them within minutes! We would highly recommend this service, very affordable, good, reliable vendor.

James McNally was the DJ at my wedding, and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ.

We had a Halloween wedding and we wanted to have a wedding that was definitely reflective of the holiday, without crossing the line of cheesy and kitchy, so we also wanted the sophisticated feel of a high end wedding mixed in.

Not an easy feat for most, but James mastered it! we gave him examples of songs we wanted, and he played every single one of them.

It was far from a traditional wedding reception, but he helped make it one of the best weddings any of my guests had ever been to. He even was able to help improvise on the spot changes when I couldn't coordinate some of the things I had originally planned to do.

I did most everything myself, including making my own wedding cake, because I had a hard time getting people to understand my vision. The few things I left to the professionals were the catering, the flowers and the dj'ing.

The florist did exactly the opposite that I wanted, they thought I should have a traditional bouquet, because all brides want that.....

The event hall and the DJ were completely understandable of my vision and were excited to be involved in such a "different" day. Because of that I had absolutely NO worries about the reception, James was beyond anything I could have imagined.

I even had given him the option to dress up in a costume if he wanted, but he insisted on keeping it professional and wear a tux. I would recommend James to anyone anytime, he is amazing!!!!

I am coming up on my 5th year anniversary this year and people still talk about that day and say it was the best wedding they had ever been to, I couldn't have done it without James!

I can't thank him enough!!!

Okay, Fred was amazing! Fred is five stars all the way. He listened to my husband and I with what we would want to hear on our wedding day, he made sure no corny wedding music was played, and by the end of the night he even mixed it up a bit with the music I enjoy dancing too. I absolutely recommend Fred to anyone getting married in the area.

Thank you Fred for a wonderful wedding! Rich and I celebrated our five year anniversary in August and I remember the day like it was yesterday. You made it a memorable experience.

I'm not sure how anybody could not get along with James Mcnally. Despite your claims otherwise, fl9wr, you apparently are bridezilla or the victim of poor planning. I am the head of event planning for one of the largest insuarance companies in the country, and have 20 years of experience in dealing with vendors of all types. I do have some clue what I'm talking about here. James travelled across 2 states to DJ our wedding, and did a spectacular job. Every detail was carried out exactly as we requested, every song played at the right time. In fact, towards the end of the night, at our request, he was playing songs that he did not have in his library off of our guests Ipods. It wasn't until later that we found out he was rather ill and barely made it through the reception. We could not have asked for more professionalism, caring and apt handling of our most special day. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends, family and everyone else.

We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. James kept the party going! He was good fun, played great music and was so helpful. Though the word helpful doesn’t seem to convey how James really came through for us. We put the wedding together fast… literally thrown together within 30 days, this wedding could have been a disaster. The wedding itself was outside and the reception was inside. James was all setup inside and ready go once the wedding ceremony was complete. But right before the ceremony we realized we hadn’t even thought of the bridal march song at all. James quickly jumped into action. He managed to get a portable player, speakers and of course the bridal march song all setup before the guests were fully seated. After the ceremony he helped us to corral the guest into the building where he proceeded to control the flow and altogether entertain the guests. James really helped to make our wedding day special and most of all carefree!

James got many compliments from my friends and family in the following days for his subtle yet entertaining presence. I highly recommend him.

James is a must for anyone who wants the dance floor packed at their wedding!! I cannot even count the number of people who came up to me saying he was the best DJ they ever heard at a wedding. When no one wanted the party to end, James stayed an extra hour- a decision he didn't need from us until the end time!! He spent several hours meeting with us to ensure everything was exactly the way we wanted it. And when we weren't sure of what we wanted, James had great ideas since he has done his fair share of weddings. He played everything we discussed and most importantly, exactly at the right time. He was also very conscientious of who he gave the microphone too, checking with us when people wanted to toast. I HIGHLY recommend DJ James McNally!!

We actually only met once in person before the event, and felt completely comfortable with that. Fred played music that appealed to all our guests, and even had people dancing most of the day, despite our reception being in the afternoon on a beautiful day in an indoor/outdoor setting. Fred is a great DJ and I would highly recommend him for your wedding.

Clark was a great DJ- he got to know who we were as a couple, what our style is, and exactly what type of ambiance we wanted to obtain on our wedding day. He took detailed notes and followed through to perfection. He wasn't a DJ who was interruptive with ad lib. We were married on a sunny day at a venue that overlooked the ocean. And even with a gorgeous day and venue, Clark still got everyone to dance- even those folks who don't typically like to! He's a professional for sure. We highly recommend!

We nded up with James McNally (none of the other DJ's were available for our date)- he was horrible - where do I start?!. I gave him a list of songs I wanted played and when, and he skipped over half of them. I told him I wanted to allow for guests to request songs, and he was rude to more than one of my guests saying he wasnt going to play them - he was so rude that my guests actually had to come up to me and say something....so once I went over to him to tell him to let my guests give requests, he actually fought me! I also requested to skip ahead to certain songs, and he once again fought me when I asked him to skip ahead

He brought up at the end of the wedding night that we owed him the rest of his money for that day - in which we had already paid, and he had ALREADY CASHED! He looked into it, and realized he was wrong.
I was in no way a bridezilla, actually I am an extremely nice and friendly person who really gets along with everyone, but he was just horrible and was so hard to get along with and have him understand what I really wanted at my wedding.

On the other hand, Fred was very apologetic to me about James when he called to follow up with me and I told him our experience, and I know a friend of mine had Fred DJ and was very pleased. I just wish that after knowing the horrible way James handled our wedding he would have fired him - unfortuntely he didnt and other couples will have to blindly endure his terrible Dj'ing. The only reason I am even giving this 1-1/2 stars is because Fred really was a wonderful person to meet and he really was unhappy that we were treated so poorly.
