This DJ is very affordable! Craig is a part-time DJ, and because of the cheap price, our expectations were low, and he turned out to be very decent!

First of all, we needed wireless and portable speakers for our lakeside ceremony inside the National Park. Before we hired a DJ, we checked that rental for portable speakers alone cost about $300. So it made sense to hire a DJ for the whole evening for just a little higher price than that.

The process of signing the contract was easy and casual. Craig and I communicated through emails, and he usually gets back to me the next day. His list of songs available is ok but not the greatest, so I would recommend asking to see that list before signing the contract. Our wedding involved a lot of songs in a foreign language, so of course we expected to provide those ourselves, and Craig has no problem playing them. We just gave him the songs on a iPod (or flash drive will work too) on the day of.

I was very specific in my wedding planning. I sent all my vendors detailed schedule of the wedding day, and a list of songs that I'd like to be played during when. That really helped, and I noticed that all my requested songs for the reception were played.

Craig showed up on time and had his setup ready. He also has some light effects for the dance floor. He was willing to be MC and introduces the bridal party and facilitates the evening, but I already had it planned out to have my friends be MC just to have things exactly the way I wanted. The dancing was awesome, good music great energy!

One thing that I felt like Craig avoided to tell me was the lack of a clip-on microphone. I had specifically asked about a clip-on in email (for a special performance during the reception), but he sort of avoided answering that question. Turned out that he has a wireless microphone, but not a clip-on mini-microphone.

Overall, the service is very basic and decent, and the price was good.

We were very excited when we hired this DJ. He seemed very professional. Had a huge selection of music and responded to our needs. One of his main draws that he sold us on, was that he was a one man company, so no one else would be doing our wedding. Well that was a flat out lie. The day of our wedding without any notice we had a new DJ whom I had never met and didnt play any of our music selections besides the aisle song and our first dance. Granted those are the most important but everything else was horrible. Genessee DJ was hired to run the music as well as help run the evenings events. The replacement never uttered a word, we had to tell prompt him for all the dances, cake cutting....etc. Then when he wasnt playing the music we asked for he didnt have anything to replace it. No Bob Marley, Jack Johnson, Jason Marz. Horrible. Afterwards I sent the DJ an email asking for a refund and he totally ignored us. DO NOT HIRE THIS GUY, he doesnt follow his word.

It was a little difficult to get a hold of them via email, but I had much better luck when I called. As far as the day of our wedding the DJ followed most of what we asked for though he didn't play a song when we were introduced as I had requested. He also lost the list of names in the bridal party so didn't introduce my bridal party as I had requested. I was upset, but its over now. I think he is great for the money and would just recommend you are VERY SPECIFIC with what you want if you book him.
