Jay is happy to meet with any potential client before booking, and the client gets to meet with their actual DJ weeks prior to the event.

Yes.

Several different "add-ons" are available to enhance your event.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?

We only require a small six foot by five foot work area.

Each client wants something different in terms of how we motivate their crowd, so we discuss this during the consultation.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?

It was a pleasure to work with Jay Maxwell and his team for our wedding. We booked them after reading the amazing reviews here, and they did not disappoint! They were easy to book and sat down with us to answer questions. They were professional and easy to get a hold of during the entire wedding planning process, and you could tell that we were working with people with plenty of experience. Our DJ, Mike Bender, went above and beyond what we wanted and kept the party going all night long! Our families, who usually don't dance very much at weddings, stayed on the dance floor all night! The price was great for the services we received. We would choose them again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!

Yes, DJ Mike Bender delivered the WOW factor! My vibe of my ceremony elegant. The vibe of my reception was jumping. I met with DJ Mike about a few weeks before my big "10 Year Vow Renewal" celebration to discuss my vision and how I wanted my experience to be. I basically told him I wanted this to feel like an up scale party. I said I want people to party all night long, until it was time for the lights to go out. He did that and more. I had a couple of set backs during my reception, nothing that had to do with DJ Bender, but he took the initiative to move things along. If he noticed something off outside his duty he did whatever he could do to smooth things out. He was definitely the hit of the night. All my guest was so impressed with my DJ. They even raved about him days after. He is so professional, attentive, funny, entertaining, and the man got soul. He delivered the WOW and he was exceptional!!!!!!!!!!!

We hired Mike from Jay Maxwell's Music by Request to be our wedding DJ, and he did an amazing job! One of the great things about this vendor is that as soon as you book with them, Jay Maxwell sends you a packet full of popular songs that are categorized by genre and/or time period, so that you can be begin to look through them and choose what you think you may want to be played during your ceremony. They also provide you with a time line that is very simple and easy to fill out, so that you and your DJ know exactly when everything is taking place, which makes the flow of your ceremony go very smooth. All the DJs that work for this company are supposed to be very well trained & are very experienced and good at what they do. They certainly aim to please, all our guests said they had a fantastic time!

My husband and I can not say enough good things about DJ Mike Bender. He is such a sweet guy and he is very easy to work with. He went above and beyond to answer our questions to help us with our music selections. We sent him a list of 80's 90's and 2000's and asked him to do a mash up of these songs. It was a huge hut and our guest stayed on the floor all night long. He also did an amazing job announcing as well. Mike we can not thank you enough, having you as our DJ was a great decision.

Jay Maxwell's Music by Request did a fantastic job at my wedding! Jay and Donna were a pleasure to work with, both are very personable and professional. Rhett was our DJ and he was awesome! From the first meeting with him, my husband and I knew he was going to deliver the type of music and dancing atmosphere we wanted! Rhett is very experienced and knows just what to play to keep your guests on the dancefloor. Come to think of it, my guests barely left the dancefloor at all! He knows his music, especially rock and roll :) He also has one of the best DJ voices I've ever heard! He was so fun to work with and he definitely made our night perfect, thank you Rhett!

I wasn't going to hire a DJ, I was just going to make our own playlists. We were really trying to keep a casual, intimate vibe and didn't want a "DJ personality" getting in the way of that. But, it turns out, it's pretty expensive to rent speakers for your own playlists and we found Jay Maxwell and I figured what the hell.

Jason Brewer DJed our event, he called me ahead of time and walked through the reception with me. He listened to what we wanted and gave useful suggestions and really came through during the event. He was super easy to work with and I really never had to worry about the music (which is what we all want right?). He played exactly the style we wanted (which was quite eclectic I might add - some Leon Russell, some 90s country, with a little daft punk and bluegrass on the side) - somehow Jason made it all work and flow together.

He made some announcements for me, but stayed true to his promise to let the music do most of the talking. The volume was perfect through the whole event (for the toasts and the music). I really didn't think we had many dancers in the family - but people danced all night, including some people that I had never seen dance before. I told him the most important thing for me was that it be "cross-generational" so everyone could have fun and he could not have pulled that off better. When the planner started pressuring him to break down, he checked with me and was able to play a few extra songs to finish the night off right.

I highly recommend this business and Jason himself, they were responsive and thoughtful and came at a great value. With all the crazy costs of a wedding, I really felt like I got my money's worth on this one.

I wasn't going to hire a DJ, I was just going to make our own playlists. We were really trying to keep a casual, intimate vibe and didn't want a "DJ personality" getting in the way of that. But, it turns out, it's pretty expensive to rent speakers for your own playlists and we found Jay Maxwell and I figured what the hell.

Mike Bender DJ\'ed our wedding on Kiawah Island. He was absolutely fantastic. People kept telling us that they have never danced so much at a wedding. Mike did a great job running the entire show and Jay Maxwell\'s group was so organized that there was never cause for concern. I would definitely recommend Jay Maxwell to anyone looking for a DJ in the Charleston area, and if you can get Mike Bender, consider yourself very lucky!!

Mike Bender with Jay Maxwell's Music by Request was absolutely AMAZING! I could not have asked for a more perfect DJ for my big day! He was very flexible when scheduling our initial meeting, and was very fun, upbeat, and enthusiastic about my big day and music selections! He was a blast to have around, played all of our requests (even the odd ball ones we were worried no one could find), as well as our guests requests during the reception. He played the right music at the perfect time (slower music during dinner, and upbeat, faster music later in the night). He kept the crowd engaged and kept the party going all night. There was never a dull moment! He was very kind, professional, and fun. I chose the basic package, but felt like I was given the works! I recommend this company and Mike Bender to all brides!

Yay for Jay! Jay is fantastic and I would highly recommend him and his services. We were suprised at how difficult music selection felt like until we met with Jay and he just made it so easy.
He was great about playing a variety of music that appealed to the different people at the reception; I think I saw almost everyone hit the dance floor at some point and we had a range of generations present.

I know you will be very pleased with his services, too!

My daughter had a question, left a message and promptly received a phone call from the owner who was on vacation with his family at Disney World! That's customer service!

Our DJ was vibrant, funny and kept the music playing! I heard comments all night about what a great time everyone was having and witnessed, first hand, the packed dance floor! All of my daughter's guests had an absolute ball dancing to their muscial selections the enitre night!

Jay Maxwell really does deliver WOW! Jay came highly recommended by my wedding coordinator, and I can see why. From the moment I met with Jay, we connected over music immediately. Unfortunately Jay himself could not DJ our wedding, but Rhett was amazing. Rhett had his work cut out for him...a bride who likes dance/hip hop and a groom who likes country. Somehow he was able to put a smile on both of our faces! Rhett truly gave our big day a soundtrack, keeping up the energy and getting people on the dance floor. And his voice is low and smooth with a little grit - just the type of personality we wanted. And the music catalog he provided was a huge help in discovering our music tastes, so instead of creating a playlist, he followed the wedding's vibe and really played into our upbeat mood. We are thrilled with Rhett and Jay's professionalism, quick responses in the weeks leading up to the big day, and talent to bring both a little bit of country & dance to our wedding!

We were very skeptical about having a DJ for our wedding, after many of our friends having bad experiences. There were so many good reviews about Jay Maxwell's that we finally caved.

We met with Brian the week before, and walked him through what we liked and didn't, and our requests. The day of our wedding was chaotic (the time flies!), but Brian kept us on track with a very steady pace, and really helped increase our enjoyment of the day.

Our DJ was wonderful- he did great job as our MC as well, and provided sound for the outdoor ceremony. He was friendly, polite, and very talented. We were able to select songs we wanted played, but he always matched the music to the "mood" of the party. Made our guests want to join in the dancing without making them feel uncomfortable or forced. Highly recommend. Very reasonable pricing for the value.

Made our guests want to join in the dancing without making them feel uncomfortable or forced. Highly recommend. Very reasonable pricing for the value. Read less

I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about Jay Maxwell's Music by Request. They were extremely easy to work with and I feel the planning was very smooth and organized. I loved the planning worksheets and suggestions they sent over, it made it much easy to plan how our ceremony and reception would flow. Brian was our DJ and did an absolute fantastic job. He kept everyone on the dance floor! The price was even more reasonable for the services offered. If I would have to do it all over again, I would come back to them in a heartbeat. I have already given my two recently engaged friends their information!

Jay Maxwell was pretty awesome to work with. Jay himself is a charismatic sales person! Their packages are incredibly reasonably priced. I believe we ended up going with the second cheapest level and got DJ Mike, and I must say he was pretty awesome. We had a lot of specific ideas and music requests and he matched them easily - and even in a short time frame (our fault)! People stayed out on the dance floor ALL NIGHT! Great bang for your buck!

We hired Darius Samii with Jay Maxwell's Music by Request to DJ our wedding a couple weekends ago - he was hands down THE BEST DJ I have ever heard. Our dance floor was packed all night and he made the perfect song selections for the age group/audience. He was so flexible about meeting to us and listened to exactly what we wanted. Even better, he kept our entire evening on track and did an awesome job providing sound/mics/announcements when and were needed. Words cannot do him justice, I am forever grateful to Jay Maxwell and Darius for making our wedding PERFECT!!!!

Thank you Darius, you're the best!!!

His assistant was a joyl as well. The assistant helped my family pack up and even took my mom home because her car was so full!! I highly recommend Jay Maxwell to anyone who wants a professional DJ. Thank you so much Jay!

It was suppose to be outside but it stormed,so we ended up starting late & he never complained, he adapted to the change without missing a step. We had to have the ceremony inside. He helped us pick music that seemed custom made just for us.He thought of things I didnt. We didnt have a planner but jay helped me thru the ceremony & he didnt make me feel like an idiot because i didnt know certain things. It was like he knew what to do before I did. Everyone loved the music & everyone danced for hours, the bride & the bridesmaids kept on dancing even after we had cleaned the venue. It was like Titanic, he played til the very end. I didnt realize that he made a cd of all of the music he played that night. I think EVERY bride needs to book Music by request, but HURRY

Nick from Jay Maxwell's Music by Request was our DJ and he was AWESOME! When we decided to go with Music by Request for our DJ, we were sent a small workbook to complete. The workbook asked us all sorts of questions about our ceremony and reception and how we wanted things to go. It was a HUGE help in planning our wedding even beyond just the DJ aspect of it. About 2 weeks before the wedding we met with Nick and went over the workbook. He took lots of notes, asked lots of questions and we knew that everything was organized and under control. On the day of the wedding he showed up plenty early to setup and meet with our musicians for the ceremony. He was very flexible during our reception when we decided to change things up a bit. One of my bridesmaids requested a song that he didn't have, but she had on her iPod. He quickly figured out how to hook up her iPod to his system and was able to play the song she had requested which was really special to me. I would highly recommend Nick at Jay Maxwell's Music by Request!

He has a booklet which has pages and pages of music that he has. He separates out the music by genre and also updates it each year to include the new music. He also has a great selection of new music performed in a classical musical style. He did an excellent job keeping our crowd dancing and having fun.

Our DJ Jason did a great job! Initially we had asked him just to play some American Standards like Sinatra, and he had a great selection available. Guests had several requests that weren't on our playlist, and he checked with us first to make sure it was ok with us that he play them. Guests were dancing all night long and had a blast. He had a really good selection, and was able to get all the obscure songs we asked for. He even handed us 2 copies of a CD that contained about 20 songs we had asked to be played. He was very professional and we were very happy with him.

We were referred to Jay by our wedding planner, & boy were we NOT disappointed! We purchased the package that included Mr. Jay himself as our DJ. He was worth every penny!!!! Our wedding occurred almost 2 months ago & people are still commenting on the DJ. The music was fabulous and continued this beautiful pace throughout the wedding. He is totally awesome & the radio/TV voice that he has is an awesome bonus. Thank you for filling our day with fun-filled and romantic much. You won over everyone that was there!

Kalib Moyer of Jay Maxwell's Music By Request did an amazing job DJing our wedding! We indicated songs that we liked on the very diverse list provided to us & Kalib was able to pick the perfect songs on our wedding night without having to explicitly tell him, song by song. He kept the party going until the very end, which was important to us, as the party ended on a high note rather than fizzling out. He was also great in managing the flow of the event together with the caterers, so that everything ran smoothly. The music was great to dance to and just right in terms of volume. Kalib was very helpful over the phone for a consultation. He was also very prompt in replying to all emails and phone calls.

The overall service we received was phenomenal. We wouldn't change a thing about having chosen Kalib and would gladly have him DJ another event for us.

How blessed we were to have Rhett from Jay Maxwell's Music By Request! Let me first start by saying that we were on such a tight budget but music was such an important part of our big day. Rhett was so prompt in always calling back and even made time to meet with me only days after a death in his own family. The level of professionalism from Rhett was unparalleled. He had everything set up for our outdoor wedding, and it was an amazing uninterrupted transition to our indoor reception. I assumed that all a DJ did for a wedding was play music and hopefully people would dance. Not so with this company. They go over EVERY detail from your ceremony until you leave. We were introduced with our bridal party and everyone's names were correctly pronounced. We went right into the first dance, etc. and the night was flowing really smoothly. Rhett even planned with us in advance to stand near the cake during the toast so that we could transition right into cutting the cake. I have received so many praises from the wedding guests about Rhett and the great music he played. The bottom line is that I would recommend Rhett and Jay Maxwell's Music By Request to anyone looking for a quality DJ who truly goes above and beyond.

He had everything set up for our outdoor wedding, and it was an amazing uninterrupted transition to our indoor reception. I assumed that all a DJ did for a wedding was play music and hopefully people would dance. Not so with this company. They go over EVERY detail from your ceremony until you leave. We were introduced with our bridal party and everyone's names were correctly pronounced. We went right into the first dance, etc. and the night was flowing really smoothly. Rhett even planned with us in advance to stand near the cake during the toast so that we could transition right into cutting the cake. I have received so many praises from the wedding guests about Rhett and the great music he played. The bottom line is that I would recommend Rhett and Jay Maxwell's Music By Request to anyone looking for a quality DJ who truly goes above and beyond. Read less

The DJ (Andy) from Jay Maxwell's service was outstanding. Not only very friendly and professional, but also played a good selection of music basic on our requests. He also was wonderful about feeding off the crowd, choosing music that not only got the party involved, but kept them there. Andy from Jay Maxwell's Music by Request was outstanding. I would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ.

Jay Maxwell's Music by Request was the perfect choice for our wedding music. They provided music for our outdoor ceremony with a very seamless system - I never saw any wires and only heard the beautiful music as I walked down the aisle. He also did my reception music. It was a great blend of both requests (pre determined/approved) and space fillers (between the toasts, prescribed dances, etc.). They followed up with us prior to the ceremony to be sure that all names of the wedding party were pronounced correctly, the order of events was understood and the song versions were correct. They even made suggestions for our exit and "best ways" to do things that we didnt think of! They are definitely the professional who knows how to do it right! We were more than pleased! We definitely chose the right DJ!

It felt as if we were family! They were very professional and made sure everything was perfect. The wedding would not have been as special if we had used anyone else. I will always recommend their services and will always use them for all of my future events. To me there is NO other dj in town. Once you've had the best...why go anywhere else... Thank you Thank you Jay Maxwell!! We listen to the wedding cd of our music we had played constantly...let's us relive the best day of our lives. Shelly

I requested Mike for my DJ. He was AMAZING!!! He sat down with my husband and I and went through the entire ceremony. He kept everything moving ontime, kept everyone dancing, so I could keep my peace of mind! I can't say enough great things about him. He was perfect from start to finish! He gave me a copy of all music played at my reception, he told me where to be and when to be there. I had people coming up to me weeks after the wedding complimenting him. He has a great announcing voice, great personality, and isn't the schmoozy DJ that some can be. Email or call Jay Maxwell and ask for him!!! You won't find a better DJ.

Jay, his wife Donna, and our DJ Rhett, were beyond fantastic! They were accommodating in every way and made our wedding everything we dreamed it could be. They went above and beyond in many ways. They made it possible to have my friend play the cello during our outdoor ceremony, they cut several tracks for me to be able to sing to my husband during our reception, and Rhett even introduced me in a very meaningful way. The best compliment that I can give them is that we had wedding guest, after wedding guest say the were "upset" with Rhett because he was playing such great music, that we hardly ever left the dance floor, and by the end of the night, we were all exhausted! They played a huge role in making our wedding day unforgettable!!

Jay and his team are simply some of the highest-quality party stokers that I have ever encountered. He personally met with us and reviewed all aspects of our ceremony and reception to ensure that neither my bride and me--and our guests, for that matter--forgot the single most important reason for our wedding: that it was a day to celebrate.

He was faithful to our specific musical tastes whilst also using his vast musical knowledge and gift for reading a crowd to play the perfect song at the perfect time. If Jay and his team are still around in twenty-odd years, I know exactly who I will trust to keep the party going at the weddings of my children.

I can say it was the best dancing ever! Thanks guys!

Jay Maxwell was one of the most professional and helpful vendors we had at our wedding. His DJ services were outstanding. Anything we asked, he went above and beyond to do. If he did not have a song or the version that you wanted he would look until he found it for you, he made our ceremony and reception flow so perfectly and every single guest of ours talked about how fun and perfect our wedding was, which could not have been accomplished with out him. He was so committed to our wedding that he even stayed after to help my family clean the reception hall. My husband and i give our highest recommendations to him and his DJ Services.

The DJ was very helpful when we first met to go over music selections and offered his suggestions. He showed up an hour before the guests were expected to arrive to set up and make sure the reception site had everything he would need. He stayed true to our music selection and would tell our guests that the bride and groom requested not to play a song if they attempted to request it.

We feel like we hit the DJ jackpot with Nick! I have had countless people comment on how awesome our reception music was and how perfectly things seemed to flow. Nick was spot on with his music playlist- and kept the dance floor packed ALL night. I loved how we had a brief meeting with Nick before our wedding day and we gave him a few suggestions about the genres of music that we liked- and he took the ball and ran with it.

I think we have all been to a wedding reception and the DJ was a bit cheesy- Nick could not have been any different than that- he was fun, engaging, and energetic.

I also wanted to comment on how wonderful it was to work with Donna while booking through Jay Maxwell's Music by Request... she was prompt, professional, and very organized.

We could not be happier with our choice and had a GREAT time!

He went above and beyond by giving us CDs of all the songs that were played at our wedding so that we can go back and reminisce on our anniversary.

Mike Bender from Jay Maxwell's Music by Request was our DJ. He was punctual, friendly and very professional. He helped tremendously with the flow of the evening. He was quick to play any special requests. He also met with us before the wedding and took an hour to go over the plans for the wedding and all the little details. He had a great music selection. We were very happy with Mike and would recommend him and Music by Request to anyone looking for a DJ.

My husband even set up a special performance on his guitar, and Kevin was there beside him to hold the mic while he sang. Donna was also a pleasure to work with concerning scheduling and their pricing packages fit right into our budget.

We had Rhett as our DJ. He is, as Jay described him, his top DJ, would be second in comand if he had a partner. He was great and did a great job of following the song list we provided and the order in which we wanted the reception to flow. He was very nice and I would use him again. He didn't have a big sign up on his table trying to promote the company like I have seen other DJ's do which I think is very tacky and he wore a tux rather than khakis and a polo. It was a very polish look and demeanor. Hats off to him!

Our DJ was supposed to be Rhett. We had trouble communicating with him because he only wanted to use the phone (no email or Skype), and he wasn't a great listener. We were unsure how he'd do. To our pleasant surprise, on our wedding day it was Jay Maxwell who showed up instead (we never heard why), and we had a great experience with him. We didn't have a coordinator or MC, so we were nervous about having to keep everything running ourselves. We needn't have worried: Jay managed the schedule for us, introducing toasts, dinner, dances, and the other things that happen during weddings. When he wasn't making those announcements, he stayed out of the spotlight and played music that kept our small crowd dancing until the end of the night. Jay was professional, courteous, and a skilled DJ and MC. We'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ.

Kalib with Jay Maxwell was amazing. We had our consultation and we went through everything on the music and timeline. We made a few changes afterwards, but Kalib was totally with it and accommodating. He helped keep the time line during the night along with the reception location and the photographer. The only thing that slightly annoyed me is they got some new equipment after we booked it and a few weeks before the wedding during our consultation they were telling us about the great new equipment, that included an extra $100. We paid it because it was what was best for our venue, but I did feel like it was another one of those "add on" situations, but since it has been added to the contract. They were very great and called us multiple times to make sure that everything would be perfect.

We had DJ Rhett, booked through Jay Maxwell Music and he was great. We had several guests compliment us about our choice in DJ after the reception. He kept the crowd moving without using the cheesey DJ moves like playing the electric slide or having theme dances. We didn't have to be really specific about what we wanted either, because he already knew what would work and what wouldn't. My husband and I knew nothing about what good songs or dance music would be good, so we left it up to him and it worked out well. The money for the value is great too. Jay Maxwell offers different prices for different budgets and gave us a good deal due to having an off-season wedding.

I had a mixed experience with our DJ. Overall, Donna and Jay (the owners) were great to work with. They were flexible, responsive, and understanding that we had a budget within which we needed to work. They have a tiered service offereing with a network of DJs. The less experienced DJs are cheaper. We went with mid-lower range. Our DJ, Ron, was very professional and very nice. The music selections during dinner were great, during dancing, however, it was not so good. We identified all the songs we liked fron Jay's extensive library, but it felt like the selections that were made out of that during dancing were poorly paired. There were very odd transitions between songs (it sounded very awkward from one song to the next). A few times, we went up and asked for different music (i.e., play things that are a bit slower, since none of the older people would dance to some songs). When Ron did play those songs, many more people would get up to dance. Overall, it just felt like the choices of what to play within our list was not well judged. It was very hard to hear the DJ, so announcements were either ignored or not understood. I also made a note of mentioning I really like Bruno Marz, Jason Mraz, and Ketty Perry when I spoke with Jay, yet there was not one song from these artists played. Also, the song before our last song was not on our list at all...why not take that opportunity to play something else romantic from our list? What made it worse, though, is that because it was hard to hear, we thought Ron said that WAS our last song, so we were a bit thrown. Overall, I would work with Jay again, but would make a different choice in the DJs (or be more specific about the play list...as opposed to just list all the songs we like).

We had Rhett from Jay Maxwell's DJ business. Rhett was very funny and a great DJ to all, but there were some things that I wish he could have done better. For example, we went through all of the wedding party's pronunciation of names before the wedding, but he still pronounced them wrong. He also introduced my sister as the best man and my brother as the maid of honor, even though I had everything written down for him on a worksheet he gave me to fill out. Also, we planned on having a moment after cutting the cake when I would dedicate my bouquet to my mom, but he forgot to do this and I ended up giving her my bouquet at the end of the night, when no one was around. Rhett's choice of music was okay: he played a lot of songs that my husband and I just simply didn't like. Although our guests were dancing all night long, I wished that the music selection was better. However, I highly recommend choosing Jay Maxwell as your DJ service because Jay Maxwell himself is an awesome DJ. Go for this company, just don't pick Rhett as your DJ if you're worried about things not going perfect.

My parents hired this company to DJ my wedding after wonderful reviews by my wedding planner who had previously used this company with many events. The DJ was helpful to my wedding planner with setting up our "plan B" because of the rain and we were all appreciative of that. The power did go out at the venue but came back on roughly an hour before "go time." When it came to show time, the DJ did not come though which made myself and my wedding planner VERY upset. He had a detailed production schedule from my wedding planner and my husband and I had given him a typed up sheet with all the songs and even added links to the songs with where exactly we wanted the songs to start and how long we wanted our first dance songs to last. To list the problems that both myself and my wedding planner clearly noticed.
- The DJ had the list of all the songs that were to be played when the wedding party and my husband and I were announced and he completely dropped the ball on the song for my husband and I - we were introduced during the tail end of the wedding party's song. When we went to the dance floor for our first slow dance as husband and wife he played our intro song - James Brown "I feel good" then came on the mic and announced… "oops that is not the song they are supposed to dance to" which I am sure everyone had figured out by then but thank you for making it even more obvious and awkward for us!
- Our first dance was only supposed to be 2 min and he again dropped the ball on that one and played the entire song… my wedding planner had to tell the DJ to "get it together"
To make up for major mistakes that can't be fixed on a day that will never be done over…. we got an apology note in the mail-- unacceptable.
My wedding planner has informed this company that she will never be using their services again… I think that speaks volume for the disappointment we all felt.

Extremely Disappointed.
I was really excited to through DJ Jay Maxwell by request by reading all of the great reviews on the Knot.com and Wedding Wire. However, DJ Neil did not even come close to meeting our expectations. He botched majority of our bridal party’s names, even though I sent him the names prior to the wedding and the bridal party even told him how to pronounce their names right be they walked out.
Communication with him through e-mail was very poor compared to other vendors that I worked with. Sometimes it would take him a week to respond back to me.
I sent him through e-mail the wedding reception guide plan and all of the songs that I wanted played during cocktail hour, dinner and the reception. He never announced when my father was going to say a prayer during dinner, when the bestman was going to give a speech, and when my husband and I was about to cut the cake. We did not even have music during the dinner and when we cut the cake.
On the wedding guide plan I wrote him songs to play during dinner and the song I wanted while we cut the cake. I had asked for a snowball dance for the bridal party to have a song to dance to and an anniversary dance. Neither of those happened.
The father-daughter dance and mother – son dance did not even take place until the middle of the reception after everyone was already dancing. Along with that I gave Neil a list of songs that I wanted played during the reception and half of those were not even played. He played music that I did not even request.
We had a lot of military Col. And high ranked servicemen at our wedding and reception and my husband and I were embarrassed by the comments we got about the DJ.
I highly recommended that you meet your DJ meet before he/she plays at your wedding. I hired DJ Maxwell by request from California to play for our Charleston, SC wedding and did not get to meet our DJ face to face.

There was one major item that this client failed to mention which is that the wedding coordinator placed the DJ outside and the dinner, cake, and toasts were all held inside the building. This is why the DJ did not announce the events that were taking place inside the building and why there was no music during dinner. If we had been allowed to set up inside the building where the majority of the event was taking place the DJ would have been able to announce all the events as well as have music for dinner and the cake cutting as requested. However, when we are told where to set up by a coordinator, we suggest to them where we would prefer to set up, but ultimately must set up where told. I highly recommend, as this client does as well, that you meet face-to-face with your DJ in order to explain to him exactlly what your expectations are for your event. If you want your DJ to be active at your event, it is always best that he be placed WITH the party and not outside the event.
