Jeremy was wonderful-even though we sort of scared him when we submitted our, "Do Not Play List." After 18 years together b4 marrying and 2 kids who love to dance to pop- my man and I didn't want your typical wedding dance playlist. Jeremy played nearly all the 2012+ requests we made for dinner and dance and was awesome!!! We still had "Sweet Caroline" in honor of my Grandma who died a couple of years before and that brought the house down. Midway through the dancing my brother approached me with, "You've apparently got the DJ on lockdown and dad won't dance unless it's Sinatra!" Jeremy's gaze followed my brother to me and as I gave him the thumbs up his "New York, New York" was the talk of the next day. We really appreciated that he honored our wishes and left the crowd wanting more. He also helped a best friend sing our 1st dance song, "Here's to Us." Thanks, Jeremy...

I used Last Resort DJ for my wedding in South Lake Tahoe and they did a fantastic job! They were able to provide music for our ceremony at Lakeside Beach and they were all set-up and playing music at the reception venue when the guests started arriving right after the ceremony. They were also able to provide background music for my sister to sing a couple songs (they even provided her w/ the music file ahead of time so she could practice with it).

I loved their casual sort of style and their great sense of humor. Most importantly, they kept the dancefloor full all night long by playing great dance music. Jeremy and Jason did a great job of reading the crowd and playing what kept people dancing.

Last Resort DJ's were fabulous! They did our daughter's wedding last weekend at the top of Heavenly Valley Ski Resort. They were already set up when we arrived at 3:00 for a 5:00 wedding start time. They were responsive to requests and timed everything very well. We would hire them again in a heartbeat!!!!!! A pleasure to work with!

You get what you pay for. My wedding was an evening wedding and dressy. The guys showed up wearing beach shirts and slacks. I never got a schedule of how things were going to be done, and in which order. They pushed everything together, so that the cake cutting and garter/bouquet tossing was done right at the beginning of the reception. It made everything very rushed and let people leave early! I was very upset about how everything turned out once I got home and had time to think about everything. I would not recommend Last resort D.J.'s. They trully were my Last resort!

Last Resort DJ & Photo Booth Service responded with the following comments:

At Last Resort we work with all brides to follow their time lines on their special day. However should the bride be 45 minutes to an hour and a half late to her wedding we do the best we can to accommodate the other vendors as well as the bride and groom to ensure the meal is not cold and there is time for all the events of the evening. If we are given a timeline we have no problem following it. Everyone had to wait for over an hour for the ceremony. Then after dinner there was another hour of photo's being taken. If things seemed rush it was because of the poor planning of the wedding party and photographer. Not the DJ. We had to fit all of the special events into the small time allowed to us. After dinner and during the other hour of photos, the guests were ready to party, from what we were told they were not from Nevada and wanted to go gamble. While we waited for the bride and groom to finish their meals and take photo's people did leave, because they had been there for 2-3 hours waiting for something to happen. As you all know the bride and groom's first dance and is very important. We as DJ's cannot start open dancing till after this event has happened. Because of the 3 hour delay from the bride and photographer our hands were tied. As in life, life happens. We can't plan for everything but we are experts at accommodating!

The DJs were very professional and flexible. The music was excellent, made sure to ask us if a request came in that was questionable. The price was very affordable and within our budget. We would highly recommend them to friends and family.
