DJ Russ was fantastic! The music was exactly the kind of music that our guests liked to keep them dancing for 4 hours. There was always someone on the dance floor. Russ also emceed our wedding. He was the main reason that it flowed as well as is did, even when we were surprised with a Chinese tea ceremony that the grooms parents planed. I highly recommend Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment services. The level of professionalism is exceptional from first contact to the date of your event. Thank you Russ, Scott and all the staff at the office!!!

everyone that i talked to made me feel very comfortable at gary robertson. they treated me like a person instead of just another client. the website let me know what happens at weddings and in what order. things that i just wouldnt have known where to even start with. i guess thats what happens when you have been in the wedding business for so long. either way, my dj was great. i dont think i ever saw the dance floor empty which i was afraid of at first.

Cory and I couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment for our wedding!! We had Barry as our DJ and had an awesome time! He was great at reading the audience and playing the perfect songs to keep the party mood going! His attempts to get the whole audience involved was great too! At one point he started a train to go through the tables and draw more people up to the dance floor! Later in the evening, he even dressed up as the lead singer of AC/DC and rocked out with us while the song played! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

The specific DJ that did play our wedding was lovely and seemed to actually understand what we wanted. However, ALL of my interactions with the owner of the company were negative. Our venue only allows one DJ company to be used and Garry Robertson only has one package for that venue, a package which is considerably more expensive than other packages offered. The online music library is TERRIBLE, the only kind of music these people have is cheesy rock, and club crap. We ended up having to spend HOURS making our own cd's in order to have any of our preferred music at our wedding. Seriously who has over 100 Lil' Wayne songs and virtually nothing by Curtis Mayfield or The Roots?? I also found the owner extremely rude in his emails. We were very lucky that the individual DJ that showed up seemed to actually have a brain and actually thanked us for helping to give him some new and interesting music to add to his repertoire. All in all, you'd have to pay ME to deal with the owner again!!

Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

It's unfortunate that other DJs in our city feel the need to try to discredit our reputation as one of the top wedding DJ services in the Vancouver market. This posting does not mention any wedding date, or name and so I have no way of researching this event to validate their concerns. Anyone can easily research our online music catalogue and confirm that we do in fact have the music this posting claims that we do not have. We currently have over 110,200 songs in our library, covering every genre. Additionally each event we do has a planning guide to assist them with pre selecting the music that they would like played at their unique event. If our clients would like music for their event that is more of the Indy, or underground genre, and not something that is mostly recognizable by the mainstream public, we will ask for them to provide it for us on CD to be played at their event.
We treat each Bride and Groom with the most respect, and after reading all of the other comments here on wedding wire, it’s hard to argue that point. I would welcome whoever wrote this to contact me here or in person at our office to validate their concerns. I would like to review their event planning forms to see if they had in fact requested any of the music they said that we had none of. Additionally, I would please ask for an example of how we were rude in our email correspondence. If I cannot properly handle a client’s needs, please let me know so that in the future no one experiences anything like this posting is claiming. If there is no reply, I will assume that this was posted in an attempt to discredit us.

I dealt mostly with Scott by email, he was great, always polite and quick to answer my questions. He made up a special mix for my first dance right on the phone with me and emailed it right after, it was perfect. Our DJ was Adam, he so great! During dinner the music wasn't too loud and he quickly dimmed it when someone went to speak on the microphone. He played a fantastic variety of music after dinner, everyone was on the dance floor at some point, young and old. Adam stayed an extra hour for us because we were having so much fun. My mother couldn't stop gushing about how good Adam was the next day, we would highly recommend Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment and Adam to any of our friends needing a DJ for their wedding, or anything else! Thanks so much for helping make our day perfect!

Horrible experience - I had an amazing wedding and the DJ had a minor mishap in coordinating with one of my other performers. I wasn't too upset about it but the owner sent me a survey. In this survey I expressed my concerns. Later on that day, the owner calls me basically to tell me off, blame my other performers and take no responsibility for anything at all. He was sarcastic, rude, talked over me, raised his voice at me, then used inappropriate language with me. I asked him what the point of the conversation was. I didn't get much of an answer except that it wasn't his company's fault for anything at all. So really, what was the point of that? I really wasn't too disappointed with anything until I had this phone call which made things worse. I wrote in the survey that I wouldn't have chosen this DJ company if Brock House didn't make me, that still stands - and I will definitely express my concerns to Brock House as well. The website and all my dealings with the owner prior the wedding was very professional and I thought they had a very good way of planning the vent. I had high expectations for them, especially for the price I paid. The DJ was a very polite well mannered man, the boss, not so much.

Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

I’m still puzzled at why you are upset with everything we did to make your wedding the day that you had asked us for. I do understand that you are upset that the dancers music did not sound very good, however as I had mentioned to you on the 2 follow-up phone calls to our post wedding survey, we were given this music by your entertainers to play for their performances.

Our DJ, Pierre, pre listened to the music that was provided to him on an iPhone, and immediately told your entertainer that the music was not good quality, and that he could just play the song from our high quality music library. Your entertainer told Pierre that that would not work, because this was a special edit of the song that needed.

You confirmed with me on the phone that everything else sounded great all night, including your other performers music. When I called you, I was not just blaming someone else for something that we could have controlled, I was simply letting you know, that because this was not our music, and we were not provided with the proper music there was nothing that we could have done differently. Pierre did his best to boost the sound levels as loud as possible (much louder than would have been created by your entertainers boombox). There is nothing that could have been done. I would be upset at your entertainers for running that part of your night.

When I called you the first time to ask you about the night you were set on blaming us for the poor music quality. You said “All the DJ had to do was one thing and he screwed it up”. This could not have been further from the truth, and I called to give you the proper information, so that you could at least talk to the right person about the music quality. Yes. I did try to uphold our DJ, and everything that he did for you on your night – Pierre is an outstanding employ with over 15 years of impeccable service, and I was not going to let you blame him for this problem. Yes, it could have sounded as if I was upset, you had no right to blame Pierre or us for this unfortunate situation. Had your performer provided music properly recorded on a CD, like your firewalker did, it would have been great. This was also the format that you said that the music would be provided in your planning forms.

I recently used Garry Robertson for our wedding at the Brock House and I was extremely pleased. They arrived on time, looked professional, had a great set up and kept our guests happy and entertained. The sound was exceptional too. I am very picky about sound quality and don't like to hear any feedback and GR did an excellent job of this too given there was a bit of wind that day. If you are looking for an experienced wedding DJ, not a bar/nightclub DJ then Garry Robertson is the DJ for you! We couldn't be more pleased and would recommend him to anyone!

Garry Robertson DJ was recommended by my wedding planner, Lisa Gregory Special Events, and there was no hesitation in hiring them. From the first phone call discussion with Scott Christie I knew they were very professional and experienced. They accommodated me by adding on the ceremony event and when I met with Scott he helped me plan all the music for the ceremony and reception by giving me ideas and letting know if songs I had in mind would work. He was very honest and helped to relieve the stress of picking the right songs. Our DJ was awesome! All the songs were on cue and he played great music at the reception. I highly recommend Garry Robertson DJ.

The music was so good everyone was dancing all night and having a great time! Even people in the restaurant next door were staying late to hear our music they said it was so good they couldn't leave! A few of them even came and danced with us! All in all everything turned out perfect!!!

My profession is in computer industry. I always like to organize and plan in great detail. I am thrilled with Garry Robertson's event planning website and automatic email reminder system. Right after signing the contract and when showed with the software system, I am immediately knew that DJ will do an excellent job. They have a mature system supporting the whole process. It turns out to be a perfect wedding. A lot of our friends commented that our wedding is the best wedding they have ever attended.

Using Garry Robertson DJ was so easy during this stressful time!
From using the on-line firm to talking things over with the actual DJ at the event, everything was done easily and professionally.
Our DJ was excellent - he got the party started and kept it going.
We were very happy with the service we received.

Seriously the best Wedding DJ I have ever seen, and I was so happy that this was my wedding! You and your team there at Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment really delivered what you said you would - and MORE! From the first time we called into the office, Scott was helpful, informative and really put our stress to ease. The online planning forms made outlining our entire reception easy, and left absolutely nothing to chance. We were happy that we did not have to pick all of the music for the reception, but did get to select all of the music that we wanted to ensure was played. The PhotoBooth was so much fun, and everyone had a great time with your fun props - I love all of the pictures - THNAK YOU!
I can tell that you have been working with weddings for a long time - your professionalism really shows! I have many friends that are getting married soon, and they all want to have you working with them!

The Emcee from Gary Robertson DJ Entertainment, provided the Emcee and D/J function. The D/J function was good, but the Emcee function was a disaster.
First of all he showed up 30 minutes late to do a proper set up. The Emcee refused to leave his Emcee area to stand at the podium while making the Emcee announcements. Because of this you could not hear the Emcee, someone other than the Emcee co-ordinated the tables going up to the buffet, while the Emcee stayed at the DJ station.
Only during the speaches did the Emcee go to the podium and then you could hear him. I would never use the Emcee function from Gary Robertson DJ Entertainment.

Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Thank you for the opportunity to clarify the events of this wedding reception. We work very hard to ensure that our Weddings are an amazing event for all of our clients. Unfortunately we are asked to do things that we are not comfortable doing. This was the case here, and the results were less than amazing. I warned our father of the bride that I did not think this was a wise idea; however he insisted that we use equipment that was not ours to save him a few dollars.
At the request of the Bride’s Father, we were required to set up in a room adjacent to the reception room in order to patch our wireless mic into the house system. He did not want to pay the house a small fee to use their house microphone, and instead wanted to use our wireless microphone. The sound quality of the house system was not very good, and the guests had a hard time hearing anything that was being pushed over the house speakers. I explained weeks before this wedding that I do not want to patch into a house system, as I have no idea how this would sound, I also told him that I gave no guarantees as to the outcome of trying this. I know our sound system sounds amazing and wanted to use ours. Again, to save a few dollars, he required us to patch our sound board into this house sound system.
In order to meet this request our DJ/Emcee had to set up in a completely different room, it was impossible for him to run the music, and microphone controls and stand at the podium at the same time. This also was a very poor choice for our setup location; however this is where we had to be to plug into the house sound system.
I completely understand why he is disappointed with the outcome, so was our very experienced DJ/Emcee. Unfortunately to save a couple of dollars, he chose to do this. I wish he would have listened to me in our pre wedding meetings, when I urged him to consider using the house microphone, or allowing us to set up in a manner that our speakers could have been brought into the main reception room.

Garry Robertson DJs were very easy to work with and have a reasonable price for what they offer. When I told them I had no idea what song to play as we were walking in to the reception, our DJ chose a great one to start out the night! He played all kinds of music that people of ALL ages could dance to and totally honoured my guests requests. The songs he played where I knew the originals had harsh language in them had the questionable parts so well hidden I knew grandmas wouldn’t be offended. He did a great job of keeping the dance floor the funnest place to be!
My fiancée talked with at least 5 other DJs before deciding on who we wanted to work with. I think part of the reason we went with Garry Robertson was that they were polite on the phone, reasonable, good to get along with and our venue had great things to say about their services.

I was impressed by how organized and detailed they were from the very beginning.. From filling out their detailed wedding planning forms made me consider parts of the planning I didn't realize I had to. They definitely know how to do weddings. Our DJ was a good fit for us, and played great music throughout the night. There were a few very minor hiccups but nothing too big. The DJ was accommodating and checked with us through the night to see if we had any opinions or ideas for him.

Gary Robertson DJ services really made my wedding come alive! My wedding was set in Vancouver on a boat ( not the easiest venue) but Gary Roberstson brought all the supplies and set everything up. It was all organized and ran picture perfect. From the back ground music to walking down the isle to the dancing party. They even accommodated moving the equipment to the top deck of the boat so we could have our first dance in the sunset! Later in the night the fun props and hats came out!

They impressed us in our initial meeting and since they play at our venue all the time, we thought they were a perfect fit. However, as the wedding approached, they were less and less helpful. The DJ they picked for us was supposed to contact us and never did; eventually after repeated emailing (in which I was being made to feel more and more like a hysterical bridezilla) the owner had the DJ get in touch to "go over things", which essentially meant that he asked if I had anything specific I wanted to talk about. How am I supposed to know what they didn't understand? They apparently didn't understand things like what my name was (DJ was announcing us leaving the venue and he forgot my name), and most importantly, he screwed up my processional. I had stated in my online forms that I wanted the processional song to be played as the bridesmaids walked out and continue for me, but what happened was that 3 of my 5 bridesmaids walked out to complete awkward silence before I managed to get their attention and signal that the music was supposed to be going.
I'll never get that moment back, and Garry Robertson is a company that doesn't seem to understand that while they do this all the time, this is MY only wedding. I'd never recommend them.

Edit: As I expected, GR music denies doing anything wrong. Their online planning forms have sections for additional notes underneath the processional music section; I specified there that the processional song was long enough to be played for both the bridesmaids and bride's processional. Perhaps they need to make it a policy to actually read their forms, and if anything is unclear, to clarify it with the bride. Oh, and FYI, contrary to what he said below, Scott specifically told us at our initial meeting that it was their policy to have the DJ contact the couple before the wedding to go over things. He guaranteed that while the DJ would not meet us in person, he would call us so we could "get to know each other." Why lie about that?

Garry Robertson DJ Entertainment responded with the following comments:

It is always our pleasure to create the night of your dreams; however we can only work with the information that is provided to us. When our DJ contacted you and asked if there was anything specific you wanted to go over, he wanted to know what you wanted to chat with. You wanted our DJ to call you, this is something that we normally do not do, all planning is normally put together through our experienced wedding coronations here at the office, and however you did not want to go that route. As noted in the attached image: http://www.grmusic.com/ceremonymusic.JPG you did not list any music to be played for your bridesmaid’s processional. You listed your bridal processional only. Many brides will do this to highlight their entrance. This is what our DJ did, and unfortunately your written wishes were not what you really wanted to happen.

Scott from Garry Robertson was our dj for our wedding. I was a little concerned at first because I needed both Arabic and English music to please all of our guests. Scott was an excellent dj, felt the crowd and mixed the music perfectly. He was friendly, outgoing yet professional and everyone was dancing the night away! We even extended our wedding by 1 hour because everyone wanted to keep dancing! Having the right DJ who will know how to keep a crowd dancing is crucial and I would definitely book with Garry Robertson again.

Overall I was pretty happy with their services. The music selection was pretty good and for the most part they kept everyone up and dancing. Towards the end of the night however it was only the "young" people on the dance floor and I really wish the DJ would have switched the music to get some of the other guest up and dancing. The DJ also looked extremely bored. I know that weddings are exactly the most fun for them but it would have been nice if he atleast smiled a little!
