Marlayna was fantastic. From the first phone call, to the meeting in person, to finally seeing the whole DJ set up on our wedding day - this company was fantastic. Marlayna was interacting with the crowd from the get go and was coordinating with my brothers (the emcee's for wedding) to make sure the flow of the evening was on pace! We even sent in a special first dance song where the music switches part way through. Marlayna went along with the "surprise" and acted like it was a DJ mix-up!! We loved it! Great company! Great DJ! We had people on the dance floor the whole evening and had everything from country to swing to top 40 playing.

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!
