I had the pleasure of working with Suzanne from Moondance - one of the owners. From start to finish, it was really a great experience. We had a great meeting in person to start, and I could tell right off the bat that she was going to be a great DJ! She covered all the bases, and brought up things to consider that I hadn't thought of yet - which was really helpful! On the wedding day, she did the music and microphones for the ceremony as well as the rehearsal - she was VERY quick on her feet when a couple things popped up due to some little details that I had forgotten to take care of (whoops!) - she covered everything seamlessly and everything was exactly as I had hoped it would be. She was wonderful during the reception and I couldn't believe how FAST my guests were filling up the dance floor, and they stayed there the whole night! She was great at reading the crowd and knowing what to play when, and everybody had a blast!!

I had been told several times by recent brides during the planning process: A good DJ can make or break your reception! I think it's true, and I think Suzanne did a tremendous job in making our event into a great party! I would DEFINITELY recommend her!

My wife and I recently hired Alan from Moondance for our wedding at Quidnessett Country Club in North Kingstown, RI. He did a tremendous job and we can't thank him enough! He not only played great music to get the partying going and make sure all our guests had a great time, but he also was very professional in making sure our day stayed on schedule and went off without any issues. We are very thankful to Alan and would highly recommend him to anyone and we will be sure to recommend him to all our family and friends in the future! Thanks Alan!

This company (Alan) did a great job for our wedding and we got him through another friend that had him as their DJ. We were married at Hotel Viking in Newport, RI and it involved moving from the chapel to the reception area and there were no complaints. The music was spot on all night and he did a great job of mixing in classic songs for the older guests and newer songs that we wanted for the younger crowd. The dance floor was packed all night and he ended the night exactly the way we wanted. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for a professional and quality of service.

If I had to give one word for Suzanne Hughes and Moondance Productions it would be professional. Everything about the music was perfect. She asked for a list of music and stuck to it. The mood jazz music before the reception was great. She worked with the best man who had a professional video to present. Everybody was more than happy with Moondance's professionalism and going above and beyond.

We had Moondance Productions DJ our event and Suzanne was excellent! We opted for a DJ over a band because it allowed us to play a greater variety of music, and we wanted to hear the original versions of songs instead of covers. We had jazz, big band and Motown playing for the cocktail hour and dinner and we wanted a variety of songs from different genres to dance to and Suzanne really respected our playlist – she played almost all, if not every, song we asked for and everyone was dancing all night! We even had some rather obscure songs (indie bands and europop - not just typical top 40) and she played it all.

Suzanne was so easy to work with too and she and the company are extremely professional. The best man had a very high quality production made for the event and he and Suzanne worked together with the venue to put it on and it went off perfectly.

Suzanne was definitely MC extraordinaire. I felt like I did not have to worry about a thing all night - it all went off without a hitch and she controlled the flow and tempo of the events and the announcements perfectly. She worked with the venue too, so I didn't have to get involved - she really did a great job.

If you are looking to hire a DJ for your event, I cannot recommend Moondance highly enough. We were out of the area planning our wedding and went with Moondance based purely on a recommendation, which could have been a huge gamble, but we really had nothing to worry about in working with them: they were stellar and I think all of our guests would agree!

I could not say a bad thing about Moondance. Alan was our DJ, and he was amazing. He was completely comfortable with tailoring everything to our fairly unique reception (reception a week after the ceremony/strange orientation of the building/buffet tables set up on dance floor for first couple of hours). He completely rolled with the punches and delivered amazing music perfectly tailored to our interests/requests. We are not the type to want the zany/wacky DJs, and Alan was perfect. Highly outgoing when making announcements, but not taking over the night. All-around, I felt that Moondance was the best value I got out of all of my wedding vendors.

Mike was our DJ and we LOVED him. Our friends still talk about how awesome our DJ was! He was extremely personable and blended in very easily - no cheesy gimmicks or voices, just an awesome straightforward DJ and MC -- and he managed to pronounce every name correctly (not easy with two very difficult family names marrying each other!).

The night flew by and we were worried we would only have an hour left for dancing (a major priority of ours!) - and Mike generously offered to stay late/play music until the venue kicked him out! The extra half-hour of music made all the difference for us and was SO much fun. He played ALL of the songs we requested, NONE of the songs we put on our "do not play" list, and a bunch of GREAT songs in between.

The quality we got was beyond what we expected, given this was one of the best prices we found! We were thrilled and our night was perfect. Thank you Mike!!

Sue and Alan did an amazing job with our wedding. They were very professional, and did a great job controlling the flow. We were able to have a successful cocktail hour, and then everyone (including our grandparents) were on the dance floor.

Getting ready for the wedding was a breeze. We met with them a few times, and they did the rest. We would recommend them for any wedding.

Pauline from Moondance really made our Wedding day come together flawless! Our guests of all age groups couldn't rave enough about what an awesome job she did with the arrangements from our onsite ceremony to our cocktail hour/dinner music and then dance party music throughout the evening. She made it a blast for all!! Pauline was attentive with every detail helping us through. Pauline let us pick our music and she arranged it perfectly. Can't say enough on what a wonderful job she did, after all music really makes the night. Pauline was incredible, she even made CD's of all the music played so we would have a copy which is an awesome gift to have :) Great experience, we certainly will use Moondance!! :)

I had a terrific experience with DJ Pauline Pinto of Moondance Productions. What I loved the most about Pauline was her immediate and personal responsiveness to my every request/inquiry - from our first contact all the way through our actual event. Pauline was our DJ for our engagement party and I didn't want a loud or "strobe light" kind of feeling for our event which was held on a farm. I wanted ambient music, and that is exactly what Pauline provided. I wanted music that had personal meaning, but that would also get my crowd going when it was time to dance - Pauline worked with us to achieve both of those goals. She was on time, dressed professionally, worked alone and required no help on our parts. I would recommend her to anyone, time and time again.

I recently held my wedding at Ocean Cliff in Newport, RI and selected Alan as my DJ from Moondance. Prior to choosing Alan, I had spoken to a million different DJ companies. They were all extremely expensive and didnt seem to give you that warm positive feeling you look for when hiring someone for such an important day. Then I came across Moondance on a list of recommended OC vendors. He was quick to respond, very professional, and reasonably priced. From beginning to end he made the process so easy. He is a great DJ and an even better person! I would definately recommend Alan and Moondance. They had us all dancing at the wedding and were a pleasure to deal with.. And, even better yet.. he gave me the name of a photographer that was great too!! A+

Alan at Moondance was great. He respected our must-play and do-not-play lists and most every song had a full dance floor. He is not the MC/entertainer type of DJ and that's exactly what I wanted. No dumb props or crazy disco lights (though he would probably set that up if you wanted). He also provided uplighting service for us, which enhanced our room without being tacky. A great DJ that was recommended to us, that we will recommend again.

Alan at Moondace was fantastic. The DJ was the only area of our wedding that we didn’t have any personal recommendations for so we turned to Wedding Wire, which is where we found Moondance. From the beginning Alan was quick to respond, always very professional and knowledgeable. We weren’t looking for all the gadgets and props that come with some wedding DJs, we simply wanted great music and someone talented to create the party atmosphere, which is exactly what we got with Alan. The dance floor was literally packed all night, relatives we never thought would leave their tables were dancing the night away. He met with us leading up the wedding to go over how we wanted the night to flow, he was very attentive to our requests and our do not play list. We would confidently recommend Alan to any future brides. Thank you Moondance! Wedding: Newport, RI / 10-20-12

Alan at Moondance was phenomenal to work with. Planning a wedding out of state and not being able to meet many of the vendors was difficult. Alan was professional, responsive, and the value for their services can't be beat. He was flexible with last minute changes and he asked questions about things we hadn't even thought about. He was very reassuring about the flow of reception activities and everything did work out perfectly! He played most everything on our playlist, and adhered to the 'do not play' list despite a bridesmaid asking a few times for a certain song to be played. :) Everyone danced the entire reception and continue to comment about how much fun the dancing was! Thank you Alan- we are so glad we chose Moondance.

We had Alan as our DJ. First, he was awesome at meeting up to talk about specifics and I could call him whenever I wanted and he would always get back to me promptly. We had an acoustic guitar player come for cocktail hour, but I wanted Alan to play the ceremony then start off again at introductions. It went off without a hitch!

Second, he was an AWESOME DJ! The dance floor was packed all night- we had such an eclectic group of people (a lot of bikers, older relatives and family friends) and he knew exactly what to play all night! At the end of the night he even gave us a CD of all the songs we requested for the prelude, introductions and special requests!

I know you usually don't hire someone because of how you get along with them, but Alan is such a nice person! You don't feel like a number, but a client that he actually cares about doing a good job for. Their prices are very misleading, I would check them out we did have a Friday wedding to keep costs down, but their prices for Saturday are nothing compared to other places- they will be highly recommended from me.

Pauline from Moondance was fantastic as my wedding DJ!

My fiance (now husband) and I like all sorts of different music (country, alt rock, pop, 90's rock/grunge, olldies) and Pauline was able to incorperate everything into different parts of the reception. She made a timeline for the evening and was very attentive with sticking to the schedule. She made sure to coach each person giving a speech so they were prepared at the correct time. The dance music was a fantastic mix of old and new and was great for all ages.

Pauline also made mixed cds with the music she played throughout the night. I've been listening these cd's non-stop since the wedding. There's one of just dance music, another was cocktail hour music with a mix of pop and alt rock, and a dinner CD featuring lots of Frank Sinatra and the like.

She made a timeline for the evening and was very attentive with sticking to the schedule. She made sure to coach each person giving a speech so they were prepared at the correct time. The dance music was a fantastic mix of old and new and was great for all ages.

Pauline also made mixed cds with the music she played throughout the night. I've been listening these cd's non-stop since the wedding. There's one of just dance music, another was cocktail hour music with a mix of pop and alt rock, and a dinner CD featuring lots of Frank Sinatra and the like. Read less

We had Suzanne from Moondance. She was great and had people on the dance floor all night long. Suzanne was so easy to work with, very laid back and played all the music we wanted. People are still raving about the fun they had at the wedding and on the dance floor. Excellent price with value.

DJ Pauline and Moondance were just amazing all-around. The price was well below anything else we had quoted to us, and Pauline and the people at Moondance really listened to our preferences and accommodated accordingly (I am half-French and Pauline found songs in French which I LOVED). Pauline also provided us with CDs of all the music played at our wedding, something we didn't expect but really appreciated. We also were really impressed with how professional her whole demeanor was and how "not in your face" she was as a DJ. My guests could actually hear themselves during dinner and enjoyed the light jazz, but then really rocked out during the dancing part. It was fantastic and my wedding was so so fun in large part because of Pauline. It was a stress-free experience as well... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company and this particular DJ. -Claudia

We were lucky enough to get the owner Alan as our DJ. He went beyond our expectations, playing our many requests, even those we gave him at the last minute! He was quick to respond to our numerous e-mails and made us feel very at ease with his knowledge of music. The dance floor was never empty! A true professional, I cannot say enough about Alan and Moondance!

Alan from Moondance Productions did an amazing job at our wedding. He played all the songs I requested for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. EVERYONE was dancing the entire night because he played a great mix of current music and old time favorites. He was also very reasonably priced compared to other DJ's in RI. During cocktail hour, he set up some speakers in the outside garden area so people were able to enjoy the music throughout Linden Place.

I would highly recommend his services.

Alan was so great to work with! He totally coordinated the flow of the night, which we needed someone to do. He was set up outside on the deck, but also had music inside. Once our guests started dancing, he kept them out there all night!! We didn't give him much direction, but he was able to read the crowd and played great music! Thanks Alan for all your help!

Pauline was our DJ and I wanted to pass along some feedback about our experiences. Pauline was AMAZING. She went above and beyond and we could not have asked for a better DJ experience. She was very detail oriented, which helped me feel reassured that all our requests were documented and would be planned for. On the actual day, she was very flexible to flow with the events of the night, making last-minute announcements to the gorup, and did a fantastic job gauging the crowd and pleasing everyone with the music selections. I have received many compliments from my guests about the experience, and all the credit is due to Pauline. I was on the dance floor all night long, and could not have asked for a better wedding reception.

Thank you, Moondance Productions - and especially Pauline - for making my wedding day perfect!!

We LOVED working with Suzanne from Moondance! It was one of our best first-meetings with any vendor. Suzanne was so calm, friendly and down to earth. She was the only vendor my fiancé was willing to talk to without me badgering (he won't even call for take-out). She was just a real, nice person.
She worked with our budget and was always responded quickly to all emails. She was great to bounce music, and even non-music, ideas off of and was very knowledgeable when I needed advice about what to play and when.
Suzanne also did our pre-ceremony and ceremony music as well as uplighting (very affordable). I have no idea how he found all of the obscure songs my husband and I chose - even one where I could only find the version on YouTube and not an actually music site. Her song change timing was fabulous as well. The lighting looked beautiful. I was wishy-washy on the color I wanted and overwhelmed with how to describe how bright/dim the lighting should be (isn't it crazy what us brides stress about). Suzanne did her thing and the museum looked phenomenal.
She respected all of our requests, played a great mix of music, had people dancing all night long, was a joy to work with, oh, and no obnoxious WWF announcing! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Thanks Suzanne!!!!!

We meet Pauline at my best friends wedding, we were very impressed. As we started to plan for our own wedding we definitly wanted to give Moondance Productions a call and request for Pauline. After shopping around just to compare prices of other DJ's, Moondance was by far the best price, very affordable. We met up with Pauline one Saturday morning to go over our ceremony, she gave us tips and some good ideas that we haven't thought of. Pauline was very prompt on returning any emails that we sent her. The night of our reception she was fantastic, did everything to a T that we asked for and more. Even gave us a bunch of cds with all our special songs, dinner songs, and dance songs from our reception. Pauline was was very instrumental in making our wedding reception a night we will never forget.

Thank you so much

As soon as we met with Alan, we both knew he would be a great DJ for us! Alan was our favorite vendor! He is very personable and really knows his stuff! We had guests from all over, who liked many different genres of music from Country to Rock. Alan was comfortable with it all and was able to blend all the different types of music we wanted together so that it worked!






Alan DJ'ed our ceremony and reception music. He was great with suggestions for the ceremony music and even gave us a CD of classical music to choose from while we were planning because we were lost when it comes to classical music! I was very nervous about the ceremony, but Alan's calm demeanor really put me at ease. He has DJ'ed many wedding ceremonies and you can tell he has the experience to make it run smoothly. I put myself into his hands and he was perfect with the cueing and switching of the music. It was beautiful!






We didn't really have a playlist for cocktail hour or dinner, but told Alan the type of mood we wanted...lively, but not too much! He totally understood and played a mix of music that was great.






He was great when it came to being the MC. His voice and presence on the microphone were superb. The announcements were flawless...we had some difficult names and he pronounced them perfectly. He announced all the special dedications I had requested as well as cake cutting, parent dances, etc..






Alan checked with us once during dinner to make sure we were happy and to see if we had any last minute requests. I found this to be very considerate and knew his mind was on us and making sure we had everything we needed.





The reception dancing was great, with a lot more people dancing than I ever expected since it was a daytime wedding and my family does not really dance! I was on the dance floor from cake cutting till the last dance. He even let one of our guests use his microphone to sing a special song for us (after getting our permission, of course). It was very touching and one of the highlights of the day.







Moondance was very reasonably priced compared to many other DJ's we looked into. Alan was a great resource when we needed recommendations for other vendors, and would not have found the great vendors that we did without his help. Definitely book Alan from Moondance if you want a great wedding!

I don’t even know where to begin. This is going to be long so if you’re not the patient type and don’t feel like reading…in a nutshell Moondance Productions is great and definitely the way to go!




Now for the long story! Suzanne was beyond AMAZING and I thank God we found her. Out of all of my vendors picking a DJ was the most stressful for me. I’d set up appointments with a few and most of them were flakes or were overcharging for what they offered. Literally less than 4 months away from my wedding we didn’t have anyone booked. I looked at the list of DJ’s that were recommended by our venue and I thought I would check out the Moondance Productions website. I contacted them and was promptly e-mailed by Suzanne. She wanted to mail us some information and set up a meeting with my fiancé and I to go over what we wanted and to tell us a little more about her offerings. My now husband and I have very demanding schedules and 2 kids and were just a few months away from our wedding day so we needed to do it but flexibility was going to be key. Suzanne agreed to meet us on a SUNDAY morning, which was literally the only time we had available together.




She was very straight forward from the beginning. She offered a flat rate for service…no tricks…no gimmicks…no nothing. Just straight out pay this and you get this! Love that. She also has a huge library of music and thorough knowledge of each genre. It’s one thing to be able to stock an iTunes library and touch play but it’s quite another to be able to gage flow of songs and read an audience. If you have something special you’d like she can easily get it for you if she doesn’t already have it.




Suzanne is much more than a DJ…she is a fantastic MC and overall event planner. She gave us some really great suggestions on how to make our evening flow better, which was key since our venue did not have a coordinator. Our ceremony was on the deck and she was perfect at cueing us to walk out. She was extremely detailed…and she honestly cared more about my ceremony and reception more than I did! She took time to really get to know us and get to know the type of guests we would have at the event. She has a great deal of experience and it shows.




Our ceremony and reception turned out like a dream. She kept everything moving on schedule…was very attentive to our needs and the needs of our guests. Communicated with our other vendors to help make sure everything was perfect. All night everyone was asking where did we get the DJ?! She even made sure to have speakers outside on the deck for the ceremony and in case people wanted to dance out there. She also provided up-lights, which we ordered for inside, but then she brought extra for outside and didn’t charge us for the extra!



The evening was better than we could have ever imagined. We had a perfect ceremony, wonderful mellow cocktail hour…fun introductions…emotional speeches and music…relaxing dinner…then we partied down the rest of the night!! It was AWESOME!!




Most of all beyond being an amazing professional, Suzanne is just a genuinely really nice and very cool person. It was so cool to have a female DJ! None of my friends and family had ever been to a wedding with a female DJ. It was so natural and easy to work with her! She was also very patient with my daughter (who is only 3 and can be a handful.) It was such a pleasure to work with her and we will definitely be hiring her again for special events. She has already been hired by a friend at my wedding, for her up-coming wedding!





If you want a perfect reception/party or any event…with a DJ who cares…then Suzanne from Moondance Productions should be your choice for sure!

Along with a great price was an awesome DJ...Pauline!!!!We were able to meet before the wedding and plan out how the night should flow and I was able to give her a list of songs my finance and I had picked. She was able to build a playlist from that. She was wonderful the night of the wedding...she kept the flow of the night, played the songs on the playlist along with ones that fit in perrfect, and had the best speaking voice (I knew I didn't want some obnoxious guy in a tux!). Everyone was on the dance floor all night....and so many of the guests complimented on how great the music was!!! I recommended her for my friends wedding which was a week after mine and she was great there too!!! Overall a great experience with Moondance!!!

We rented a sound system and mics from this company, so we could play our own music from an mp3 player. They were very accommodating and flexible. They set up, broke down, and even sent along a staff person named Aimee to watch over the equipment and help out a bit. She was not a wedding dj, but I knew her as a local club dj.

We rented a sound system and mics from this company, so we could play our own music from an mp3 player. They were very accommodating and flexible. They set up, broke down, and even sent along a staff person named Aimee to watch over the equipment and help out a bit. She was not a wedding dj, but I knew her as a local club dj. Thank goodness Aimee was there to help us with the mics! She stepped in when we needed help with the equipment. She even helped our friends set up the decorations!

Alan was a fantastic DJ. He provided us with lighting & DJ services. I didn't hire an event planner and he was very helpful in organizing the schedule of events before & acting as master of ceremonies on the day. I hate to think how hectic things would have been without his help. Beforehand he met with me to go over details & help me make decisions I was unsure about.

The lighting in the room also looked great. It really set the atmosphere in the reception room and has made the pictures look awesome. I didn't think we could afford lighting, but Alan provided us with a DJ/lighting package that was very reasonable.

Everyone I have spoken to said it was the best dancing they've ever been to because the DJ was so amazing. We had a few songs we wanted played and a few we didn't, but for the most part left it to the DJ. (He didn't play any of the songs we didn't want played & all of the ones we did want played.) Alan did a great job of reading the audience and playing songs that kept everyone dancing all night.

I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional DJ who really provides an all around music and lighting package.

We hired Moondance to be the DJ/sound technician for our ceremony and pre-ceremony. We had a very unique situation... We had an i-pod and my husband’s band playing for our reception, but realized that we were going to need someone to provide mics for our ceremony, to play our music cues for the ceremony and to DJ pre-ceremony at Beavertail in Jamestown where there was no power available!!

A close friend recommended Moondance for this job and we couldn't have been more pleased. We contacted Alan, who was already booked, but he recommended renting the sound equipment and battery power through him and he would send along an intern/club DJ who was not an actual “Wedding DJ” but could set up the equipment and work through the music cues. Aimee was WONDERFUL! She met with us out at Beavertail, to find out exactly where we would have the ceremony and where she would set up. Throughout the time leading up to the wedding, she was great with communication, open to our suggestions and as nice as she could be. I was a little nervous since Aimee had never DJ’ed a ceremony, but throughout the time leading up to the wedding, she was great with communication (she even gave me her personal cell number), open to our suggestions and knowledgeable about the equipment. At the wedding, she was flawless. Everything was mic'ed perfectly, the cues in the ceremony were timed just right and the sound levels were great.

My guests commented on how she was so helpful when they arrived and did not know where to go…they thought she was the wedding coordinator, not just a DJ! She even played music AFTER the ceremony until we all left, something I had not even thought of. And the choice of music (which supplemented our list) fit exactly. She was extremely gracious as well, making sure to thank US for having her before we left.

We got amazing valuefor our money by renting from Moondance and to have Aimee work the equipment for us!

I'd highly recommend DJ Pauline Pinto. Admittedly, we were a little nervous about deejays because we'd heard about our friends' general experiences with the dj not listening to them; this was not our experience at all! Honestly, we really couldn't have asked for anyone better or more professional than Pauline from Moondance.

Pauline is in tune with people's needs and up-to-date on music. Before the wedding, she was on top of things, making sure she had all of the files prompting me for things if she hadn't gotten them and helping me think through various aspects of the wedding. She was also super organized and very responsive. Plus, we kept adding services we needed (e.g., cocktail hour music, ceremony speakers for our musicians / officiant, etc.) and she was accommodating throughout the process, even days before the wedding... I'm not sure how she does it!

On the day of, Pauline was very professional, following detailed instructions carefully (including setting off our streamers for a storybook ending and setting up the uplighting that people commented on as being beautiful and posted on the FB pages!!), and really kept the crowd on the dancefloor throughout the night. And there were no overplayed songs, cheesy music, etc. -- people of all ages were on the dance floor. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us! Over a month after the wedding, my mother still tells us how much she and her friends thought our DJ was good; many of our friends also thought our wedding was one of the best they'd been to.

Admittedly, we were a bit last minute with getting our dj at 6 months to go. But Moondance Productions was THE most affordable deejay I found after doing a lot of price checking and they were just as good as anyone else, so I feel lucky. My tips generally speaking -- ask your friends what songs they like. We generated a comprehensive list and everyone loved the songs!

The only cons -- at the beginning, I felt that the general owner was slow to respond after my inquiry (but it is irrelevant to overall services). Also, decide your last songs (e.g., do you want slow songs at all) -- I hadn't thought about it much. Check about wireless mics if you need them set up. And go with your gut -- your friends know what music they like!

This was a very positive experience and went off without a hitch! Pauline is a great communicator and pretty cool, so you can't go wrong.

We were lucky enough to have Suzanne as our DJ- and I can't say enough positive things about her. She played exactly what we asked, and didn't play anything we asked her not to. She timed music to keep people on the dance floor all night, and didn't bat an eyelash at some of our requests. (We had a friend announce us; I danced with my dad to the Twist; etc.) Incredibly easy to work with; prompt responses to my many e-mails; relaxed and relaxing to talk to the day of. She's a gem, and I would HIGHLY recommend her.

I went with Moondance based on reviews from other brides, and I was not disappointed. Alan provided our ceremony and reception music as well as uplighting for a great price. I dragged my feet in getting him the music list because we couldn't decide some songs, and he was professional and patient the whole way. I didn't give him a play/do not play list but had mentioned that I didn't like "group dances," so when my uncle requested the Electric Slide be played, Alan asked my permission. I really appreciated that.

We didn't have much of a dancing crowd but the dance floor was packed all night; he really read the room well. Alan also read my and my husband's taste well - he could tell what we liked from the Special Songs list we filled out. One of my favorite memories from the wedding is dancing to Uptown Girl with my new brother-in-law, which wouldn't have happened if Alan didn't catch on that it's my favorite.

I'd recommend Moondance to anyone! The room looked lovely drenched in pink uplights and the music was just perfect. The sweetest bonus was the CD of the processional, resessional, and special dance songs Alan handed my husband at the end of the night... such a special touch!

I worked with Suzanne from Moondance. When we met her I felt very confident that she would do a great job and would not be my biggest fear with djs: cheezy! She seemed very professional and that she really knew how to keep people dancing. Classy and fun. We had several e-mails and a conversation to go over all of the details and I felt confident that we had covered all of the details (she had several that I had not even thought of). At the reception, she did an excellent job of checking in with us, but not too much and was so flexible! My father brought a cd of different salsa songs he loves and she very nicely added them in throughout. She did make one error in the schedule of events, but it was immediately remedied, and she was very apologetic. Very minor. I had a wonderful time dancing the whole night and people could not stop coming up to Suzanne and complimenting her on what a wonderful job she was doing!

I was thrilled with Moondance Productions. We asked very specifically for no "60s, 70s, 80s, hip hop, or rap music" and our dj took such a request very much in stride. He told us, "you realize, that's most wedding music" and still found a play list that kept people dancing all night and made us incredibly happy. He also had the perfect volume of music during dinner so that people could still talk and enjoy themselves while having a bit of dinner music. At the end of the night, he gave us a cd mix with many of the songs from the night which was a lovely, very personal touch. Very happy!

We actually didn't even meet Suzanne until we were getting ready to line up for our reception intro! But no matter, everything went off without a hitch. She called us a few nights before the wedding to go over the details of our song selections. We had a couple tricks up our sleeves, my husband had a secret for me, and I had a plot for my stepdad dance. Suzanne executed both perfectly! Family came up and told me what a great person we got to DJ and she was good at deciding when to play requests, if they weren't specifically on our list. We also got CDs of our songs at the end of the night.

When we began our search for a DJ, we were intially dismayed by what seemed to be sea of vendors specializing in over-the-top princess weddings with loud music, neon and flashing lights, and services that seemed more suited for one of those Girls Gone Wild videos. Not to mention astronomical fees for an experience we could get at just about any college-town bar on a Friday night. But then we came across Moondance Productions, and breathed a sigh of relief when we saw that they could provide exactly what we wanted (classy, low-key, fun DJ services without a ton of hoopla), and do so at an affordable price. Pauline was the first DJ on staff available for our date, and we had a very pleasurable experience with her. Pauline was quite flexible and helpful in the planning of our music lineup, and she took the time to help ensure that we were getting all that we wanted in a DJ service. Pauline is experienced and personable, which I found to be especially comforting when the stress of planning and coordinating was reaching its peak! Although most of our guests were not the dancing type (ourselves included), Pauline took it in stride and did an excellent job of providing the service we had been hoping for. We recommend her and Moondance wholeheartedly!

My now husband and I were looking for a DJ who wouldn't "over the top" and "showy" at our elegant, vintage-style wedding in Narragansett. After meeting with several other DJs from the Newport area it was clear that we were barking up the wrong tree. That's when we found Alan. He was originally recommended to us through the staff at the Narragansett Towers, and we can see why. Alan knows the place inside and out. Volume control is a little tricky in the unique space and he knew exactly how to handle it so the music wasn't overbearing to the guests during dinner but got people up on the dance floor afterwards. Alan was a pleasure to work with. He was easy to reach and answered all our questions quickly. He played mostly music we had requested in advance and nothing that we didn't want played. His introductions were perfect and he kept the evening moving at a nice pace. We had our cocktail hour outside and he had a nice portable set up that was perfect for the space. Highly recommended!

We had Alan from Moondance Productions and we were very pleased with his work. I wanted to edit our first dance song and he happily did it for me. I was very strict with the timing of the music at our ceremony, but he did great even though processional took a lot longer than expected. He stuck with our do and do-not play list at the reception. What I loved about him was that he knew the type of music we liked just by our do play list. And when a guest requested a song out of our genre, he told the guest that he would need our permission first. So he asked and I appreciated that. And one more thing, Moondance prices were very affordable.

Suzanna was an excellent DJ- she kept everyone on the dancefloor all night! She was easy to work with, took our play and do not play lists seriously, and had a knowledgeable and fun demeanor that helped me to relax and not worry about the flow of the reception.

We were thrilled to work with Moondance for our wedding. Pauline was wonderful. She answered all of our questions and was very knowledgable. She had a great enthusiasm and made our wedding amazing. She also was flexible and able to set up in two different tents, plus our after party venue, all in one evening. We were very impressed with this service.

They have a few DJ's, but we had Suzanne for our day. She did a great job with our requests for songs and also for our first dance. We planned to trick everyone with our first dance, that it was a normal sleepy one and then she would stop the music when we looked at her and then put on a Salsa song. Well she played it off awesome and everyone was surprised :)

We were thrilled with Moondance Productions. We had a specific list of songs that we wanted to hear during cocktail hour and the receptions (some of them a bit off the beaten path), and our DJ found them all for us, making a very "us" cocktail hour.
He also did a great job editing our first dance song -- and even at the last minute! He set the perfect mood for dancing, and managed to get people of all ages on the dance floor just by playing good music - no gimmicks or party games or chatting with the crowd. It was just what we wanted!
My only complaint is that they were often quite slow to respond via email; as we were planning this wedding from abroad, that was a bit of a bother.
Every other detail was fantastic!

Moondance was great!! The price is fantastic for what you receive. We worked with Pauline and she was very easy to get ahold of with questions and suggestions for the evening. I did hear other brides received a CD with all the music played at their wedding, but I did not. This doesn't really affect me one way or another. I would highly recommend Moondance!

The music at our wedding was great. We requested a number of songs and all of them were played. He also took requests which our guests liked. However, he was "not good at public speaking" a quote he said at the beginning of the bridal party announcements onto the dance floor. We thought it was odd, he was a professional DJ right? But he was very nice, communicative before and during the wedding, as well as easy-going with changes and special requests.

Moondance Productions responded with the following comments:

Hmmm. I think I said something like "Welcome and Good Evening" not what they think I said. The bride and groom were lined up in another room, so they probably did not accurately hear.
It was a great wedding, though! A wonderful couple and very nice guests. The bride and groom chose some great songs to incorporate in the mix and their guests danced all night long!
Best wishes on your marriage! It was definitely a fun way to start it!

Suzanne was great. She was good about not playing music I thought was annoying and played everything I wanted. Even if she didn't have the music she found it for me. Plus, she was really good about telling people where they needed to be since the Coast Guard House wasn't really on top of their game.

Very professional, and friendly. Mike from Moondance productions set up on time and was ready for our reception. Didn't stay to our list and began adding music before exhausting our choices, and some were not similar styles for the dancing portion of the evening. Overall good service, but somewhat disapointing given such high recommendations. In a space that was long and narrow, he worked to keep the sound level good for everyone (not too loud, not too soft). Kept the energy up during the later portion of the reception and kept people on the floor.

I'd like to begin my review with the caveat that I never had any personal interaction with this vendor - everything went through with my wedding planner. With that said, even though all transactions went through my wedding planner, my husband and I expected a bit more intuition from this vendor since they've been doing weddings for a long time and should know what to do in certain circumstances.

Our venue was the Aldrich Mansion, where we were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather during the wedding. Our guests (the younger set) opted to hang out on the beautiful patio for the reception...There were speakers set up outside already because that's where we did our first dance. You would think that an experienced DJ would play music where there were people, but that was not the case. Until my husband specifically asked the DJ to play music outside, all the music being played was in the dining rooms where no one really was hanging out. For the most part, it's a wedding DJ that plays music from an iPod...You pay for the equipment and generic service. For $875 for 5-6 hours, I really did not think it was worth it at all.

I heard a lot of great things about Moondance which is why I booked them, however I was very disappointed at their service during my wedding. The DJ questioned my maid of honor as to why she was not giving a speech, which in my opinion is none of their business and had no place to question anything since her timeline clearly stated that only specific people would be giving speeches so it wasnt like this was a last minute change or anything. Also, a few songs were played that has explict language which I didnt appreciate hearing with the older crowd there, when we had asked in our "must play" list that songs with vulgar language be left out or the cleaner version played.

Also, the DJ asked everyone to stand for the speeches, from the welcome toast given by my father, grooms father speech, best man speech when finally my uncle asked everyone to sit for the blessing - when at this point we were all standing for 15mins or so - it was awkward that everyone was standing especially for the older guests. This was all a major lack of professionalism on their part and they should have known better.

What mostly bothered me was the song selections to get my guests up and dancing - there was no good balance of music for the young and older crowd that was being played, so for the most part, dancing was minimal and given the amount of songs we had for the DJ to choose from on the "must play" list, we were disappointed that a good amount of them were not getting played.

Yes, they are inexpensive, but sometimes you get what you pay for, and unfortunately that rang true for my wedding experience with them.

Moondance Productions responded with the following comments:

This was a beautiful wedding for a nice young couple!

For the introductions, the bride and groom chose a different song for each member of the bridal party! This was great fun and well received! The guests stood upon entrance of the bride and groom, who went directly to their seats for toasts and dinner. The father of the bride was already equipped with a wireless mic and began his welcome speech immediately and did not ask the guests to sit.

The DJ was approached by the Maid of Honor (sister of the bride) with her speech in hand, regarding when she would be giving her toast. The DJ politely responded that she was not on the list, but would check with the bride, to which the Maid of Honor (who was visibly upset) said to forget about it.

The music list provided by the bride and groom was compiled of mostly new hip hop, dance and top 40 songs. Moondance Productions subscribes to a professional music distribution company that provides the "Radio" versions of popular songs. These versions that are played on the radio "Bleep" out or "Cut out" inappropriate words, therefore, nothing was played that could not be played on the radio.

The bride and groom asked that the DJ play only from the list they provided or requests from guests, which the DJ did. There were many requests from the guests, and the dance floor was never empty. The Groom was quite a good dancer and really tore it up the last hour of the reception!

At the end of the evening, the Groom expressed his overwhelming gratitude and thanks to the DJ with a very generous cash tip.
Moondance Productions was recommended to and subsequently booked by an engaged couple whose friends were at this wedding and loved the DJ!

Well our DJ wasn't the worst but she certainly wasn't the best. We used Pauline from Moondance Productions. She was very friendly and professional. She had a great speaking voice for the announcements. Our friends like to dance so the dance floor was full most of the night but it did take a while to get things going. She didn't have the music turned up loud enough during and right after dinner. The one big mistake was that she pulled the power cord out during our wedding party dance and it took a few minutes to get the music playing again. One of our groomsmen just picked up singing Love Shack where she left off and she apologized. Overall she did a decent job.

Moondance Productions responded with the following comments:

This was a great and fun wedding! The dance floor was packed all night!
Just 2 quick points:
1. The DJ was hired by the father of the groom, who saw her at another wedding and liked the fact that the music wasn't too loud during dinner!
2. The power chord was actually pulled out accidentally by a guest's foot, who was behind the DJ table speaking with the DJ. The DJ took the blame, so as not to embarrass the guest.
