I am a little confused on how to rate Let The Music Play. They came highly recommended to me from my aunt who used them for a party in which I attended. I really enjoyed the DJ so I called and requested the same DJ for my wedding. We dealt with Alan the whole time as far as booking and music and timeline and stuff however Donald was supposed to be our DJ. So you can imagine my surprise when I finish my ceremony and some other guy in jeans with ripped hems and converse chuck Taylors that look about 20 years old comes up to me confirming my playlist and names 5 mins before we are to do our grand entrance! He also said he never got our playlist which I don't know why I was just now hearing about that 5 mins before the reception.

My husband then told him that I like Beyonce and that he likes 80s RnB, Mint Condition, New Edition etc. These people did not play any Beyonce until just before we were to walk out because someone requested it and I did not hear not one Mint Condition or New Edition song played either.

All of our guests enjoyed themselves and danced the whole night-which is why I am confused on how to rate these people-however my husband and I were quite disappointed that music we wanted to hear was not played. We have tried to call them several times since the wedding to at least get an explanation of what happened to the DJ I originally requested and to maybe settle things but Alan has refused to return our calls. I find it a very unfortunate thing considering he came highly recommended to me you would think he would try and make things right-just a simple phone call with apology would of been nice.

I have worked with Alan twice now at weddings where I was the wedding officiant. He is prompt, friendly, helpful and very professional. Thank you Alan for all of your hard work and help with getting me mic'd for the ceremonies. You are the expert and I always feel comfortable knowing you have the controls with sound and timing of the music. Great job!

It's hard to write this review because as a company, I know, Let The Music Play, is great. Unfortunately, the DJ they sent for our Wedding was not great. Since our wedding was out of the L.A. area, they decided to send a DJ from Orange County that has worked for them a few times, Larry. In a nutshell, Larry the DJ, was unorganized and inconsistent. Although he was nice and had good energy, he just didn't seem to have it together and the music was a disaster. He didn't stick to the order of events as we had asked, he played a version of a song we specifically put on our DO NOT PLAY list, and he got people's names mixed up, and several other things that I won't bore you with. We had given him a list of the dance songs we wanted played, but out of the list of 50 songs on our list, he only played 4-5. The rest were random songs at different tempos and people kept dancing, then sitting down, then dancing for one song, then sitting down. We ended up telling him he could leave early and he knew he didn't do a great job because he apologized to me without me even saying anything to him. He said he could see the disappointment on my face. Even though we said he could go, he kept trying to play songs to make us happy, but it was too late. Our best man had already given him the envelope with the tip I had prepared earlier, but we didn't even want to tip him. After the wedding, I sent an email to the owner of Let the Music Play, to provide feedback and let him know of our dissatisfaction, but what I got back was an email from Larry defending himself and his work. I also got a phone call from another member of Let the Music play to discuss the issues, but we've been playing phone tag so far. All in all, I would not recommend Larry the DJ.

Let the Music Play responded with the following comments:

Allison this was booked last minute and all the booking was done through me (Darrell) and you were told we had a guy available but he wasn't one of our main guys but we could get it covered for you and since it was a very scaled down wedding you were fine with that and were told that he wasn't one of our regular performers and you could pay him directly. We were just trying to get it covered for you and it really wasn't even a Let The Music Play event, so I'm a little surprised by the review.

The person i picked to MC was awesome (Darrel), the owner was very wishy washy, i think he wanted me to use him, but he's older and I wanted someone younger. The price was good, but i had a hard time getting communication from them.

Let the Music Play was the only DJ company we looked at since they came so highly recommended to us. We met with Alan, who explained that the company always sends a 2 person team consisting of a DJ and MC to each event. Alan told us to watch their promotional video that includes clips of each of their MC performers so that we could choose the MC that we felt would best fit our crowd. Ultimately, we chose Alan! He was fantastic. He made sure everything flowed smoothly, stopped by each table during dinner to meet our guests and get a feel for the crowd, and throughout the night knew exactly what to play to keep people on the dance floor. At the end of the night, Alan called all of our guests onto the dance floor for an incredible send off for my husband and me. Most of our guests danced for the entire evening and guests from all age ranges complimented us on the DJs after the wedding. LTMP was very professional, lots of fun and we highly recommend them!
