I just got married a couple weeks ago at the end of July 2014. And we hired Marc because of the great reviews he already had. One thing's for sure...he deserves all the good things you can read about him. He is very organized, friendly, and extremely accommodating and helpful.

We met with him in the beginning of our planning process, and he was very helpful from the get go. While my wife and I were still trying to figure out how a wedding is supposed to happen in the first place, he helped through even while we had no idea what we would need from him yet.

Then throughout the whole planning process he was always just one email or phone call away if we had questions. I tried to set a couple meetings with him as we were getting closer to the wedding date and had to cancel them because of family matters, both times he was totally understanding and helped me reschedule; never sounding condescending or annoyed.

He was able to make our wedding reception lots of fun. All my guests will remember that night for a very long time. I am from West Africa and had some family flying in and I asked Marc if we could incorporate some of our African music for them to enjoy and feel at home during the wedding. He never heard these songs before, but he was able to mix them along with all the good old school, hot40 hits, and the lovely traditional tunes. He mixed traditional and modern like it was meant to be together and kept the dance floor filled!

Marc was also a great MC, and worked with the vendors to start the different elements of the reception (dinner, cake etc.) when they were ready. He spoke clearly and audibly and came to us to find out when we were ready for our parts (first dance, garter and bouquet toss etc). He was cool but still professional throughout the night.

I had to write a great review to thank Marc for his work. He deserves your business and he has the knowledge, the experience, and the skills to make your wedding reception an unforgettable one.

Marc came highly recommended to us, but was already booked for our wedding day. In his place he put us in contact with one of his top rated colleagues Rob Hanna. Rob was the perfect match for our needs. The bride and groom as well as the majority of their guests were in their upper 30s to 60s and we wanted to set a tone that was reflective of this. Rob was perfect at keeping the flow of events while not being too prominent. Additionally, he was extremely timely, coming early to set up and loading out prior to our turning the venue back over. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

Marc was absolutely incredible at our wedding. He always returned my calls and emails promptly and took the time to meet with us before the wedding to get the final details together. He played all of the music on our request list and kept it to the (narrow) list of genres that we told him we wanted. He expertly saved us from a potentially very embarrassing situation by not allowing a drunk guest of ours to make a toast by politely explaining that there wasn't enough time for another toast. Many guests mentioned how great the music was and how much fun they had, and a lot of the credit goes to Marc. Definitely recommend if your goal is some good old fashioned, classy fun.

Marc is a very engaging DJ who listens and who quickly understood the wedding atmosphere we desired. He met with us in person and he was very attentive as well as punctual. Communication between us was timely and responsive. He worked well with our wedding coordinator and was able to provide last minute sound services during the ceremony (outdoors). His online music planning questionnaire was extremely helpful as it allowed us the time to think and discuss our music selection and "do not play list". During the wedding he was attentive to the guests and the mood of the wedding where he played the most appropriate songs to get people to dance. He knew when to slow it down or pick it up. Overall our expectations were met and we really enjoyed working with Marc. We would highly recommend him to any future couple looking for an experienced and reliable DJ.

In the planning phase, Marc was extremely helpful and responsive to my emails. On the day of, I could not have been more happy with his professionalism and skill. My wedding was very formal and Marc was able to keep the formality while also creating a fun party atmosphere. I was most impressed with his ability to read the crowd and what songs were and weren't popular. I would absolutely recommend to friends.

I have worked with numerous DJ's in the industry from California to the east coast, but have never been as impressed as I was with Marc. He is very professional, flexible, responsive and reliable! I was impressed by his willingness to go above an beyond as well as his positive, can-do attitude. I would highly recommend and use Marc for any event!

Marc was great to work with from start to finish. He really listened and understood the mood we were going for. He was on time, professional, and really got the guests dancing. He has an online portal that was helpful in getting us to think about specific things - e.g. introductions, when the cake cutting would happen, etc. He's got great experience to help brides think through all those details.

I have already recommended him to friends and family. Truly top notch. I can't say enough nice things!

It’s extremely rare for me to write a review, whether I’ve had good service or bad service, but when it comes to Marc, I felt compelled to write something…he was just that great. Getting married at the Willard, my wife and I wanted to find a DJ that would play songs the crowd could certainly enjoy, yet matching the environment of the hotel. From the initial interview, Marc was our guy…we read many positive reviews on him and agree with all of his highlights. Most importantly, at least for us, he knows how to read a crowd, while keeping in line with your music tastes. Throughout the night we were told how great the music was…and it’s really all because of Marc. He was very easy to work with; he has high quality sound equipment; a strong voice to introduce the wedding party and move things along; he played the music we wanted; and of course, catered to the crowd (we had a full spectrum of ages, so, it was not an easy task). For me, one of the most memorable moments of the night was the string of songs he played at the tail end of dinner leading into and finishing off the toasts – I couldn’t have picked any better myself…they really fit the mood. And so it goes back to playing the songs you like, while fitting the situation at hand, which I can’t stress how important that is in a wedding DJ. Marc worked with us to find our musical tastes and he took off with it on the day…not one song was played that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. No question about it, he made the reception memorable…couldn’t be happier!

Marc Augenbraum is an extremely skilled and professional DJ who helped our wedding ceremony and reception go off exactly the way we’d hoped. He listens and really tries to put the couple’s plan into action. He quickly responded to questions via phone and email and took the time to come meet us in person. He helped us fill in the blanks -- from how much music we'd need for the wedding party processional to providing sample playlists of prelude music. Marc’s great at bringing and moving his own equipment and making it work with the space provided. The sound quality was solid and the wireless mics (which we used for toasts and such) were also high quality. He also easily accommodated some quirks of the venue (second floor, and the speakers needed to face a particular direction). Marc worked according to the timeline we gave him, worked well with our DOC and other vendors, and pulled it off in a way that made it seem natural. He easily handled our special requests, like time to sing happy birthday to two of our guests. He directed the attention of our guests to special moments (like the cutting of the cake) but remained unobtrusive. Perhaps most importantly, Marc read the crowd and kept everyone on the dance floor. We opted for an all-passed tapas reception instead of a seated dinner, and Marc was able to judge which music to play when folks were eating that was fun and allowed for dancing, but didn't drown out conversation. Later, when it was all about the dance floor, Marc made sure that all generations were having a great time. We gave Marc a “must play” list of songs, all of which he played, but he did an amazing job of reading the crowd and playing whatever got people dancing (a priority for us). We would highly recommend Marc. His fees are more than reasonable for the high quality of his services, and he was able to work with us regarding our budget to eliminate extras like uplighting that we didn't really need.

Marc was referred to me by another DJ I had randomly contacted after a quick search on google. I reached out to Marc and he was quick to respond to my email. Within days, Marc drove out to my neighborhood for a pre-hire meet and greet. Marc was flexible on meeting location, date, and time, which made my job that much easier. Marc gave off a good first impression: he was clean cut, well-dressed, and carried a professional demeanor.

After I hired Marc, we met to go over my and my bride's expectations for our wedding day. Marc took careful notes, provided a very helpful schedule-of-events template for us to work off of, and was amenable to our requests. Throughout the time leading up to our wedding, Marc was always responsive to emails and calls, which gave us peace of mind that we had chosen the right person.

As for his work at our wedding: it was absolutely amazing. He honored our playlist and do-not-play list, and--as we requested--played a number of songs that were on neither, but matched the style suggested by our requests. He made sure the music was appropriate for each part of the reception. During dinner, there were quieter tunes that didn't drown out conversation; during the balance of the reception, he made sure the dance floor was always full. People loved the music. My wife and I could not have picked a better set of songs to play at our reception. It is also worth noting that Marc was a great MC: he coordinated with our other vendors to ensure that each event of the day was announced and announced on time.

I would highly, highly recommend Marc to anyone looking for a wedding DJ. I thought he was a good value, professional, responsive, and was an important lynchpin for the success of our wedding reception. I have zero regrets hiring him--and have nothing but praise for his fine work at our wedding.

Marc was amazing! From our first meeting where he gave us his background and a song list, to the subsequent emails, phone calls and meetings to put together the song list and the entire evening's schedule he was extremely helpful. When we tried to steer from some of the more traditional things such as the bouquet/garter toss, he gave us some modern ideas of replacements. He was perfect on timing and song choice! We had guests ranging in age from 3 into their 70's and no one had 1 bad thing to say about the music!! He kept them on their feet and having a great time!!

Marc is a true professional. His style is sophisticated and refined. He worked patiently with the bride and groom to assure that the style and music for the ceremony and party was exactly what they wanted. Marc truly "felt the pulse" of the crowd at the party and had everyone on the dance floor throughout the evening. Our guests raved about the music and how beautifully the evening flowed.

Marc was an absolutely wonderful DJ! He was incredibly accommodating by phone and email, and ensured that everything ran smoothly on our big day. We are appreciative of the variety of music he played, and the effort he went to in order to find many of the foreign songs that we requested. We would highly recommend him to future couples!

Marc was the DJ for our wedding in May 2013. He was a pleasure to work with. He was very professional, had lots of ideas and suggestions, and our other vendors loved coordinating with him. The music selections and execution were great and made our special day flow seamlessly.

Leading up to the wedding, Marc was very responsive. We held our reception at a small venue, and we hosted cocktails, dinner, and dancing in different rooms, on the main floor, second floor, and cellar. Regarding the different set-ups required and moving about, Marc was flexible and accommodating. Marc worked well with the venue's director of catering. Regarding the music and dancing, the dance floor was packed all evening! All of our guests, from our friends to my ninety year-old grandmother, danced as Marc varied the music and everyone heard a favorite song of theirs played throughout the night. Further, Marc's prices are really quite reasonable.

We were impressed with Marc from the moment we first met him. He had been recommended to us by a coworker who has similar music tastes to us. After our first meeting with March we knew he was the ideal DJ for us. Marc was very professional and personable. Throughout the weeks leading up to the wedding Marc was very responsive and helpful as we finalized our music. He listened to all of our requests regarding the type of music we wanted played and the vibe we wanted for the night. Marc even surprised us by playing our alma mater's fight song while we gathered for a group picture. I would highly recommend hiring Marc!

For our wedding, we didn't want a "party DJ." We wanted someone who could play fun music and get people dancing, but could still be relatively unobtrusive and blend into the background. Marc understood this and gave us just what we wanted! He was comfortable and classy in his delivery and he played a good mix of music (some more contemporary and some older stuff). And he really listened to us on the short list of songs that we did not want played. He also provided a really useful list of song options for all the typical parts of the wedding. He was responsive and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Marc Augenbraum to DJ any event!

Marc was great to work with throughout the wedding planning process, and he did a perfect job at our reception. Marc’s unparalleled professionalism and experience was apparent from our first meeting. Marc was thorough with making sure that we were on the same page regarding what music we wanted to hear, and what music we wanted to skip. We also appreciated that he took extra time to figure out which Italian songs to play to get some of our older relatives on the dance floor. On our wedding night, Marc met the perfect balance of being non-intrusive as a DJ while making sure we kept on schedule during the reception as the MC. His music selection was perfect, and it was great to see our older relatives get up and dance while our younger relatives and friends had a blast all night. We could not have asked for a better experience; we had fun all night, and our family/guests were still raving about the music even after we got back from our honeymoon. We definitely plan to recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

We were recommended to Marc by the St. Regis hotel, where we were having our wedding. He was on their preferred vendor list for entertainment. Marc was such a pleasure to work with from our initial emails, meeting, phone calls, and the actual event. Marc got to know us as a couple and understood the kind of party we wanted to have at our wedding. He did a great job keeping the party going all night and everyone on the dance floor. His attention to detail was on point with the announcements, song selection and timing. If that isn’t enough, his prices are also VERY reasonable. We would hire Marc again for a future event and certainly highly recommend him!

He is personable and a seasoned professional. Not one false note! My wedding party enjoyed the music and everyone had a blast.

We interviewed a number of DJs for our wedding and discovered that it is standard that most are well versed in all music genres, have glowing reviews about how they got the party rockin', and offer ceremony and reception services, but not all DJs are equal. We chose Marc because it is personal to him, he is the DJ and owner of the company. There was no 3rd party booking agent, we worked directly with Marc and could see that he is vested in the quality of service provided. Marc is well experienced in the industry and thus was able to customize the program with us. He has a solid music knowledge as he even recognized the Hawaiian artist/song (Iz Kamakawiwoole) we selected for the mother-son dance! Additionally, if you're mostly a do it yourself-er, his network within the industry can be useful to help you along. He was always willing to do a face-to-face meet in the Northern Virginia area and was responsive (usually less than 12 hours) to us even after we had finalized key points. The best compliments come when least expected, so when my great uncle commented how impressed he was with the DJ's command of the room during the reception, I knew he nailed it! There was not a dry eye in the room during the mother-son dance and he followed that up by getting everyone on the dance floor, even the elderly folks (even those from outside the country)! Sure, on your biggest day, you want a rockin' party, but you are also showcasing yourself, your family and most importantly your relationship so we chose Marc for his professionalism, class, and to keep the party rockin'! Thanks Marc!

This is the testimonial that my husband wrote for Marc (I helped of course!):

My wife and I recently got married and had Marc Augenbraum as our DJ. All we can say is that Mark Augenbaum is THE man! He went out of his way for us throughout the planning process and actually came to our home to meet with us before we even contracted with him. Some of the things we loved about Mark: he is super nice and easy going, he is extremely reliable and honest, he has an excellent assortment of music (and what he didn't have, he made sure he got), and he was an excellent master of the reception and kept the whole wedding flowing smoothly.

He was flexible and was able to make adjustments on the fly during the course of the wedding reception when they were needed. His setup of the sound acoustics was fantastic and we had an amazing sound quality, which was really important to us after seeing how these things have gone wrong at other people’s weddings.

We’ve witnessed this stellar performance not once, but twice, as Marc was a DJ at my wife’s brother’s wedding. The results were perfect each time! If you want to have someone who can work with you on your special event who is talented, professional, caring and an all-around great person, look no further than to Mark and he'll take care of you. You'll be in good hands!

Thanks Mark for everything!
Sincerely,
Byron and Beth Aquilino

In a word, Marc's services and skills at each juncture of our wedding, from the planning process to closeout, were phenomenal. Having been to a number of weddings with a bad DJ, my wife and I were extremely conscious of how important it would be to pick the right one for our wedding. Marc came highly recommended and I knew after our first phone discussion that he was the right DJ for us. His approach was thorough and well thought out - demonstrating the skill to foresee things that my wife and I (definitely novices to planning a wedding) wouldn't even think to consider. At each step of the process, it was clear Marc wanted to make sure the music - and consequently the mood of the event - accounted for what we wanted to hear (and explicitly didn't want to hear). While he made every effort to gather our thoughts, it was so comforting to also be able to rely on his expertise and approach to help guide the event's development. When we had questions, Marc was patient. When we had specific wishes, Marc was accommodating. As we got closer to the event, when other vendors were having issues or hiccups, Marc was supremely prepared - invaluable to our peace of mind. On the day of the event, Marc was definitely on his A-game. I can't tell you how many people came up to us even before dinner was being served and said the music he had selected was absolutely perfect. During the reception, Marc knew exactly how to pace songs, when to ramp up the crowd and when to move into slower songs to give people a breather. He executed transitions between different reception milestones brilliantly (dinner, first dance, cake cutting, father-daughter, etc.) People had such an absolute blast because of the music he selected with only minimal guidance from us prior to the event. I couldn't be happier with Marc's services and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone planning their own wedding.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding DJ experience than Marc. He was immediately responsive to all questions, flexible in working with our difficult schedules when setting up meetings, sensitive to our concerns, and all-around phenomenal to work with. He was classy and non-intrusive, and he completely respected our wishes in keeping all announcements low-key and not calling too much attention to our first dance, about which we were nervous. He played the perfect mix of music to keep our family and friends on the dance floor all night long. He was an incredible value for his price, and he helped to make our celebration more fun than we could have ever imagined. We'd recommend him to anyone!

Note: Marc never batted an eye at the fact that we were two women getting married to each other--after dealing with plenty of vendors who reacted poorly, we were relieved to find someone for whom the fact were we gay was a complete non-issue!

He was an incredible value for his price, and he helped to make our celebration more fun than we could have ever imagined. We'd recommend him to anyone!

Note: Marc never batted an eye at the fact that we were two women getting married to each other--after dealing with plenty of vendors who reacted poorly, we were relieved to find someone for whom the fact were we gay was a complete non-issue! Read less

Marc was just wonderful! He was unfailingly professional and friendly throughout the planning process and on the day itself. He even took time out of his workday to meet me at the reception site and go over how he would set up the sound system in the room, which was a gesture I really appreciated. Marc was well organized and very self-sufficient -- he clearly has been in the business for a long time and could easily navigate his way through the myriad of demands on wedding vendors. In terms of the music he played, I gave Marc a list before the wedding of about a dozen songs I particularly liked, and he extrapolated from that list to form a playlist that, if I didn't know better, I'd think he'd lifted directly from my i-pod. It was a wonderful blend of different types of music that everyone (especially me!) enjoyed. He even incorporated some songs from my husband's home country. (And he willingly played "Hail to the Redskins," even though he is a Giants fan. :) We got compliments all evening on how wonderful Marc was!

When planning our wedding, we were debating on hiring a DJ or band. We decided on a DJ in order to hear the music that we really loved growing up and still do. We wanted someone who was going to play what we wanted to hear on our wedding day, someone professional, friendly, organized, and NOT obnoxious. Marc was very professional, played all the music that we wanted to hear on that day, was very organized and friendly. He even looked up music that he did not have just to play it that day. I could not have asked for a better DJ for the best day of my life!!!

We could honestly not be happier and more pleased with Marc. He was incredibly responsive throughout our entire wedding planning process and was very attentive to making sure that our wishes were heard and brought to fruition. He is extremely professional and highly competent, and also has a wonderful attitude - he is always smiling and positive. We live out of state and he was very flexible and easy going with arranging phone meetings with us and opening his schedule on the weekend we were able to make it to DC, even taking the time to travel to our hotel to see us on a weekend. From the planning process through to our wedding day itself, Marc was always a pleasure to work with and orchestrated for us the most perfect and fun reception, acting as both our DJ and MC. He has our highest recommendation.

He was very easy to work with, responsive to all of our questions leading up to the wedding, and the night of, he did a great job announcing/ m.c.ing the events. I don't have a single complaint with Marc and I would definitely recommend him in the future.

My husband and I were very impressed with Marc! We were worried that some songs that we really wanted to be played would not get played, so we gave him a long list prior to the wedding and kept adding to it, he was very responsive and played almost every song (tth list was too long to play every song)! Our biggest goal was to keep the energy level up.... even through dinner, and Marc really listened, he played up beat music through dinner, along with feeling out the crowd to play music that we requested and would keep everyone dancing! We had a blast up until the end.

My husband and I picked Marc from a list of recommended DJs created by Washingtonian magazine and we couldn't have been happier with his services. He was so easy to work with and really made the process stress free. Although we only met in person twice, he was always responsive to email and on the actual day of the wedding everything turned out exactly as we envisioned. All of the songs we requested were played and he did a fantastic job of directing the various parts of the ceremony and reception - we never had to worry about it once. During the actual night of the wedding and in the following days we got so many compliments from the guests on how much they enjoyed the music and that there was something for everyone - no one felt singled out. We didn't want to have any of the gimmicky wedding songs that are sometimes played and Marc did a fantastic job of keeping to songs that we liked, was unobtrusive, and completely professional throughout the evening. His price was also extremely competitive in comparison to others we looked at. We couldn't have been happier with our choice and would definitely recommend Marc Augenbraum to anyone getting married!

Marc played all the songs we wanted as well as many similar songs that we also loved. He was able to fill the dance floor the whole night! We would highly recommend Marc Augenbraum.

Aside from the caterer and the venue for the reception, I think a DJ is one of the biggest things people remember about your wedding.

He played all of the songs off the list we gave him and did a great job of figuring out what other songs we might like based upon our musical interests. His attention to detail and professionalism were second to none. He made sure that he could pronounce everyone's name correctly and he double checked the times that we were doing the cake cutting, father daughter dance, etc.

I think the biggest testament to him was that all throughout the night we kept getting people coming up to us asking for his name and number. I think he got like 3 requests for other weddings just during the 4 hours he was working ours!

There are a lot of people out there who are much more expensive than Marc, but unless they are serving food in between songs, I don't know how they could justify those prices. We highly recommend him for your next party or your wedding.

Marc was the perfect DJ for our wedding day and I highly recommend him! He provided music for our ceremony, our cocktail hour, and our reception, and he made organizing all three incredibly easy and smooth. Marc was very responsive and professional, and even chatted with me on the phone numerous times to get clarification for specific play lists and timing of certain songs. My husband and I wanted to have a classy event and a not so traditional event, and wanted to have fun with our friends and family. Our families are not really dancers and tend to be more reserved, but with Marc as our DJ, our family and friends were on the dance floor constantly, achieving that classy and very fun feel that we wanted. Our dance floor was filled up until the very last song of the evening, at 11pm. Our family and friends were impressed with how fun our reception was and have still made comments about how we, with our DJ, know how to throw a party. So many other guests have said that our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever been to.

Marc is very respectful and responsible to play what you do and do not want him to play, yet you can also trust him with learning your crowd. He reassured me that he would be able to read the crowd and make some song choices and he was absolutely right!

I would hire Marc again in a second! As soon as we decide when to throw another party, we will be calling Marc. If you want a DJ that is easy to work with, responsive, responsible, will listen to what you want, and help you achieve your perfect wedding, Marc is your DJ.

Marc and his DJ services were a perfect match for our wedding. We met months prior to the wedding and discussed the overall goal for the type of event we were planning to help give him an idea for type of music to accompany the day. We also provided some "must play" songs, and we couldn't have made a better choice! From the dinner music, through the party, and to the end of the night....friends, parents, grandparents...everyone danced and had a wonderful night. If it's cheesey commentary you're looking for, Marc isn't your guy. If it's a first class party with a full dance floor, this is it! The best compliment of the night came from my dad, who was dead-against a DJ and insisted all classy weddings deserve a band. Bon Jovi's hit the airwaves, everyone was on the dancefloor, and I was loving the moment. My dad smiled, then turned to me and said, "NOW I know why you went with a DJ." Marc is a first class professional and I would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding, reunion, or party. Thanks to Marc for helping to make our wedding day one that we will all remember.

I would 110% recommend Mr. Augenbraum for your wedding DJ services. Seriously he saved my wedding day when the DJ I had originally booked (an independent guy) totally flaked out on me 24 hours before the big day. Talk about freaking out, I frantically called around and was thankfully put in touch with Marc. He was super efficent from that point on and was in constant touch with me over the next few hours until my soul was at ease. He was on time, dressed to the 9's, and had no problem with all my last minute (literally) song requests. My husband and I and our 16 person wedding party were all announced in by Marc and were so thrilled to have our first dance be exactly the song we had requested to Marc only the night before. My reception was a total success and it is in large part to Marc and his DJ Services. Anyone would be so lucky to work with him. One of bridesmaids has already booked him for her June wedding! Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions regarding Marc or my experience with him as my wedding DJ. Cheers!

We were fortunate enough to meet Marc back in 2000 in our search for a DJ for our wedding reception. He is professional, punctual and very accommodating. Little did we know then that Marc would eventually become part of our family...he has since been retained for and wound up working all three of Tracey's sisters' weddings! Marc's style is easygoing, not at all in-your-face or "over the top" like many other DJs. He knows when to speak and when to let the music do the talking. He's someone we trust and would be a quality selection for anyone's DJ needs!

Marc was wonderful. He was by far my most responsive vendor, and he had a great and very complete questionnaire. Marc met with us in person once and called multiple times before the wedding. The music the night of was a total hit! He had everyone, young and old, on the dance floor. It was the perfect mix of classic songs and top 40 hits. His price could also not be beat- Marc even charged us less than he could have for setting up early, before the ceremony.

We received a recommendation for Marc from another DJ in the DC area. Since we were planning our Virginia wedding from Los Angeles, our mutual availability was limited, but Marc was great about communicating with us over email, phone, and even Skype late at night. After interviewing Marc and getting a feel for his low-key and straightforward style, we knew almost immediately that we wanted him to work our reception. He was accommodating when we asked him later to provide a second system for amplification and music playback at our outdoor ceremony, and he even set up a personal Dropbox folder for us to exchange music and timeline information with him.

Fully invested in our event, Marc joined us on our venue walk-through about a month before the wedding. On the Big Day, he arrived three hours before he was slated to go "live" so he had plenty of time to set up his ceremony rig, do a proper sound check, and coordinate remaining details with us.

During the ceremony, Marc did a great job of riding the mic levels for our readers, the officiant, and us as bride and groom so that we could all be heard equally well. For our reception, the reviews from our guests were unanimously positive, focusing on his great music choices and his perfect sound levels. Dinner music consisted of jazz and big band at a comfortable low volume, and his dance music managed to walk that fine line of being louder and livelier without being overbearing. Instead of being on the mic all night trying to ramp up the crowd, Marc let the music speak for him, for which we were very grateful.

Our crowd consisted largely of baby boomers and folks in their 20s and 30s. Though their collective taste in music proved to be somewhat enigmatic, Marc fine-tuned his playlist all night long, and managed to keep the majority of our guests at the party until the very end at 11pm. We would love to work with him again.

Marc is an all around wonderful vendor! We couldn't have asked for a more professional, personable, punctual DJ. He listened to our suggestions while offering his own expertise on topics such as the timeline of events, length of songs, types of songs. One thing that impressed us about Marc was how, at our first meeting, he asked about us: how we met, what kind of music we liked, what type of reception we envisioned, and THEN he told us how he saw our wants playing out through his DJ services. It really was a collaborative process. He is accommodating, easy to work with, and very responsive to both email and phone.

Mark was great! He was very professional and pleasant at our wedding. We were afraid of getting a DJ who would be obnoxious. Mark was just the opposite. He was composed and smooth as an MC and played the essential songs that we asked him to play. He also read the crowd well and played things that he thought would go over well and they did - the majority of our guests were out on the dance floor throughout our reception.

Marc was great! All the wedding guests raved about him, and he was very open to playing the songs we picked out. We asked he play about 60% our songs and to play the rest depending on the mood, and it worked out perfectly! Great DJ!

Marc was extremely professional throughout the entire process. He had a great selection of music and a lot of suggestions for songs for each occasion (e.g. first dance, announcement of the couple, etc). He walked through the whole event with us about a week before to make sure he had his cues right and to answer any last minute questions. In the end, we had a fantastic night - a full dance floor and happy guests!

Marc was a great DJ. He is clearly very experienced, and he offered helpful suggestions and asked great questions leading up to the wedding. We had a lot of "indie" songs, and he did a great job incorporating them into various parts of the reception with his more standard wedding songs. We had our ceremony outside despite some rain, and our officiant worked with Marc to rearrange things so his equipment wouldn't get wet. I was a little taken aback when, after our last song, Marc asked me to review him when he was saying goodnight - I know persistence pays off, but I felt it was an inappropriate moment. Other than that, I'd recommend him!

Marc seemed great at first, but we were disappointed he didn't play much from our playlist. I think he has so much experience that he has a pretty good idea of what will get the crowd on the floor, but may not trust his clients' tastes in music. Our guests were definitely dancing, but we still wish he had stuck a bit more to script.

You might need to just be more expressly clear about what you want than we were. But if you're not sure what you want, he definitely knows what he's doing.
