We used Media Jockeys or our wedding on 7/26. Stephen was our DJ for the evening. We got lots of compliments on him and were really pleased that he stuck to our preferences as well as played everything we asked him to play during the ceremony at the right moment! The price was very reasonable and we feel Media Jockeys was an excellent value! The only thing that was difficult was trying to set up a time to meet shortly before the wedding to go over everything. We had a hard time getting in touch with him and that made me a little nervous. However, it all worked out and Stephen was flawless as our DJ. Highly recommended!

My husband chose Media Jockeys to be the DJ’s at our wedding on October 5th 2013. Media jockeys online system was very easy to use to create our “must play” list and to incorporate any and all special requests that we had. We worked with Lynn and found her very personable and easy to work with. Their prices were very reasonable! We also received a dance lesson from Lynn before our wedding and she helped give us confidence on the dance floor. Lynn kept the music going for the whole reception and kept mixing it up to encourage people to keep dancing. I would recommend Media Jockeys.

Media Jockeys was recommended to us from a friend that had recently gotten married and I am so glad that we went with their recommendation. We worked with Stephen to plan out the music for our ceremony and reception. They were very accommodating to our requests and worked with us on getting special pieces of music for our ceremony. They have a amazing music library that is available to look at on their website. You can select specific songs, by specific artists and even list songs that you don't want played. Stephen was the DJ on site and he was excellent at making introductions, keeping the day flowing and reading the crowd. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Media Jockeys, and specifically Stephen, to any couple.

Lynn with Media Jockeys DJ our wedding. She is very professional and will work with exactly what you want played and not played. She played most of the songs on our playlist. The one tiny part that was a mistake (not even a big one) was she announced that my husband and I were going to do our first dance when it was my Dad and I that were going to dance first. She really did a good job at mixing the music up for the younger and older crowd to get people dancing. Really recommend her.

We were very happy with Stephen from Media Jockeys. We planned our wedding from out-of-town and Stephen was always flexible in meeting with us when we were in town. He listened to what we wanted and offered suggestions for how to improve the flow and make things run smoothly without ever being overbearing. Their website contains planning forms and a huge music library that you can use to flag songs you do and don’t want to hear at the wedding, and give any feedback you want. The mix of music at our wedding was just what we’d wanted and Stephen did a great job MCing and helping direct the evening along. We were on a budget (who isn't?) and found Media Jockeys to be very reasonable and a good value for our money.

Lynn and Mark were awesome! They took care of everything and we never had to ask, they were on top of everything from emcee duties to helping get broken wine glasses cleaned up. They helped make the entire event go off without a hitch. They acted as a liaison with our venue's staff which allowed the wife and I to mingle with our guests with ease and without worry. They did a great job emceeing, stayed in contact with us to keep things moving along, were very respectful and absolute professionals. They showed up dressed to kill, played great music (which we had a hand in selecting), and kept the dance floor jumping all night. It was an awesome party! I would highly recommend media jockey's! There is no better, affordable, service in town. Thank you Lynn and Mark!

We were lucky enough to get Lynn winkle to dj our reception and we were more than satisfied! We had a fairly large list of songs we wanted played and I think most all of them were at some point during the night! Lynn also didn't play anything from our "do not play list" as well as not playing any genres we didn't want! She kept the evening flowing well and read the group well when it came to keeping people on the dance floor! We had her booked for 4.5 hrs but she was willing to stay longer if we wanted (with additional pay of course). She was very professional and very respectful of what we envisioned! I would recommend her to anyone getting married!!!

The Goods: Great sound, good lights, didn't play any of my "do not plays", arrived on time and dressed appropriately, communication was fine, and was fun and friendly at the wedding.

Some additional details: At the start when I began contact with Media Jockey, they were friendly and eager to gain my business. I decided to book a dj early (10 months) so that I was not left with bad pickings since I had a summer Saturday wedding planned. We made the trip from Hillsboro to east Portland on a weeknight (which was a nightmare) in order to sign our contract and meet Lynn and Mark. It was a great meeting and all our questions were answered. I had requested Mark as our DJ and selected an amount of time we expected to need. We paid 50% of a deposit which is quite a bit for 10 months ahead of time, but graciously did so since they'd been so accommodating.

About 1 month before the wedding, I contacted Lynn to see if we can have our 5 hours divided between 1 hour on the patio and 4 hours inside the reception. It was an extra $150 to add on the audio on the patio with no addition of time. Whoa! So, I then decided to scrap the patio music since there will be lots of chatter anyway. Just to let you know, the amount of time you think you need when you sign your contract 10 months prior, is the amount you're bound to. It's hard to know when people will want to stop dancing when your venue allows you to go until midnight.

I submitted a shortish list (15-20 songs) of must-play songs at the wedding. Only about a third were played. I also requested in our first meeting that requests from guests should not to be taken since we wanted the songs we chose to be played. I mean, it is OUR wedding, right? And how many times do you hire a DJ to play what you want?! Well, the first thing announced when dancing started was "come put in your request". And that only led to people complaining that their song wasn't being played soon enough. That is another reason to not have requests - then people can't get disappointed. Also, why did we do all that work of putting a list together if only 1/3 get played?

PS - turns out our friends like to dance - we went all the way to midnight or so!

Overall, this was a good choice for my budget. I would rehire Mark/Media Jockey if I had the chance, but would surely have a second meeting closer to the wedding. Probably would have solved the issues.
