Do you have liability insurance?
No
Describe your DJ style:
The music we play at your event is customized to your crowd. We love getting requests from guests, so the experience you get with us will be totally driven by the people that matter to you the most...and even more importantly YOU!
 
 We won't talk too much and the music won't be so loud that you can't hear yourself think.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Not at all. We're DJs...why would we limit the potential for a good time?
What is your usual attire?
Our appearance is tailored to your event's style. We prefer to blend in just like your guests. For formal events, we wear a suit and tie (with the tie matching your event's color scheme.) For parties and casual events, we will dress accordingly.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We're the DJs. It is our job to provide music for your event. We have an extensive music library. But, for the obscure requests, we have the ability to purchase and download any song from iTunes ON SITE at no additional charge to you or your guests.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Motor City HDJ is 2 guys. The good news is the person that books the event with you is the person to play your event. No surprises.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We'd love to play for at least 3 hours but if we have to go shorter than that, that's okay, too.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We require it...and in fact we ask that we meet a minimum of two times: once to meet and solidify the initial details and the second time to hammer out the finer details that you think of along the way.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We love Arabic events a ton!
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We have our own professional, digital mobile DJ equipment. It's owned by us and is not leased or rented.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Every DJ show comes with a complete lighting package.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
We will arrive to your event no less than 2 hours before hand to set up, sound check the room, and make any last minute changes if necessary.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
NEVER. Unless you ask us to promote our company, we will never invade your event by plastering our name all over the place.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We are fully capable and ready to handle announcements that you would like me to make.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Different crowds react to different music at different times.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No breaks here...well, except to use the restroom. A meal is definitely appreciated but absolutely not required.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Just know that we would never commit to doing your event if we knew we couldn't be there. That doesn't even make sense. It would take an act of God to prevent us from DJing your event.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Never. We will only book 1 event in a day. This usually equates to a maximum of 12 events in a month (once on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.)
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require that 50% of the performance fee be submitted as a deposit to secure your event date.

One word sums up Brett from Motorcity HDJ; Perfect. Let me start from the beginning… I heard about Brett through a co-worker and gave him a call. He was easy to talk to and got me and my, then fiancé, to really dive into what WE wanted from him, not what he WANTED from us. There are five categories to rate MHDJ and Brett on this site, so i'll explain why he got a 5 in each.

Brett made 3 separate trips, each 45 minute one way trip for him, to our home to meet with us. He did it around our schedule, never having a complaint about it. He got to know us personally and it showed each visit as he remembered every detail about our wedding. Now here were two things that set him apart from other DJ's I have seen at weddings; He got out on the dance floor, pulled people from the tables to get them dancing and even lead the group a few times. Our guests raved about how much fun he was and about how energetic and lively the dance floor was because of his moves, setup and demeanor. Brett was faced with unplanned surprises, last second, and I mean literally last second, changes to the announcements, play order, music and introductions we had planned out together. He handled them seamlessly. My father in-law planned a surprise for us that Brett didn't know about. He hired our football mascot, Roary, to show up and crash our wedding. He informed Brett literally 2 minutes before the entrance. In that time Brett queued up the correct theme for Roary, corralled up 150 guests, and announced the entrance without missing a beat. Phenomenal! He was like having a fun wedding planner involved, helping us plan everything, including the ceremony in which he had no involvement lol. I will use him for any event I ever need a DJ for, and am honored to say that we gained a friend out of hiring a DJ! Thanks again Brett!

Brett was the DJ for our wedding and we could not be more pleased! Like most other brides & groom's, it was so important that we had an awesome DJ, and Brett did not disappoint. He kept the party going all night and even hopped on the dance floor a time or two. Everything went so smoothly and he always kept us on schedule, even when we weren't on schedule. Did I mention that he kept the party going all night long??

Throughout the entire planning process, Brett was always available for anything that we needed and his responses were always prompt; all the while preparing for and having his first baby! His services were extremely affordable and he was flexible-- he was always willing to do whatever we wanted and we never felt pressured about anything. Brett was extremely personable and we always felt like we were his only client; what more can you ask for out of a wedding vendor?!

Tom was very professional and responsive. We knew after meeting with him that he was our GUY!! (after 3 other companies). He had a very honest approach about expectations and music flow. He answered all questions before I could ask. I really like that he called and followed up with me after I canceled for a business trip and had him on my list of things to do. Tom really showed his strengths in follow up and that was the # 1 selling feature. He also had a great company website and make things so easy on the average couple getting married for the 1st time. Easy contract, easy forms for details and information from Bridal Party to ceremony & reception music. Was on top of handling people who wanted music played that we said no to prior. He did great with handling ll the people who said "the bride wants to hear it". If I wanted to hear anything I would have gone up to him and asked. He was no armature. lol!

We decided on a favorite R&B, soft rock, and pop-mix for dinner music and it was fun, different and guests really enjoyed it.

Tom decided to eat at DJ table but wanted to ask and not assume. "Always feed your dj and vendors :-) - ". I learned that from another review and thought I would share here too.

I would highly recommend to anyone that needs a DJ service for any occasion. Thanks TOM!!

Brett Cummins was the DJ for our wedding and we could not be happier with our decision in choosing him! One of our top priorities for our wedding was making sure dancing at the reception was fun all night long. Brett kept the energy high and happy and kept the dance floor packed the entire night! We received countless compliments that the music and the dancing at our wedding was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding.

Not only was Brett wonderful for the reception, communication with him was so easy. The Motor City HDJ website was so organized and the forms to fill out were super easy to navigate. Any time we needed to contact Brett, he responded within minutes. Brett understood that exact vision that my husband and I were going for and he delivered far past our expectations!

Brett was not only a great DJ for my wedding, but also so much fun to work with. He kept the whole reception on schedule with each event that happened over the night (first dance, speeches, bouquet toss, garter toss, ect...) and even got out on the dance floor to do the Cupid Shuffle with all of us. Hands down, Brett was great and I would definetly book him again if I ever need a DJ. Thank you so much Brett!

I cannot say enough good things about Brett and Motor City HDJ. Motor City HDJ is reasonably priced and provides a high quality service. My guests continue to talk about how great they felt the DJ was. Brett was interactive with guests and checked in with us a few times during the reception to make sure everything went as we wished. It is very easy to communicate with Motor City HDJ as they have a great interactive website for clients and are available to text message, call, or email. Their website makes planning simple with the ability to browse through music and listen to clips through iTunes (top songs for first dance, daddy/ daughter dance, mother/son dance, garter toss, etc). Motor City HDJ was the easiest vendor to work with and we would definitely recommend them to anyone having an event in the Metro Detroit Area.

Brett was absolutely amazing! He is a very high energy DJ, and our guests had a blast! He kept everything running smoothly, and adapted to our needs on the fly. We loved that he interacted with the guests and helped to start off the line dance songs. The planning website was so incredibly helpful, and choosing the songs on our 'must play' list was very easy. Brett did a great job filling in the rest of the songs. People loved the song selections so well that we actually had guest requesting the playlist! We would definitely choose Brett again if we ever needed a DJ!

Brett did a phenomenal job with our wedding. We couldn't have asked for better service right from the start. He came highly recommended from a friend, and in my husband's and my opinion, he surpassed all our expectations.

We greatly appreciate all the effort he put into the wedding - down to dancing Gangnam Style with my 9 year old nephew and making sure to fulfill our wishes of no Justin Beiber music what-so-ever. He had a great sense of humor and a lot of energy. Thanks, Brett!

Brett got our reluctant crowd out on the dance floor, and kept my husband and I updated and checked in with us to make sure everything was going well and we were happy. We had complete confidence long before our wedding day that everything would be handled and go smoothly and that's exactly how our day went off. Brett was the perfect DJ for us!

I am so happy to be able to say that I had Bret as my DJ!

He did such an amazing job. During the planning process, Bret was flexible and fast to respond to my emails. He always made time for me. We met before the wedding to talk about what kind of music we wanted at our wedding. Bret was able to give us suggestions and guide us based on his experience.

We were able to keep him updated on the timeline of the reception/music choices through the Motor City HDJ website. It has a great planning page and also you can pick "must play" and "do NOT play" songs so that he knows what your style is.

Once we got to our reception, the lights and sounds were absolutely amazing!! We did the standard first dance and father-daughter dance, but after that Bret transformed our reception into CLUB SZABO!!! The dance floor was occupied at all times. We had the perfect mix of old and new. We did have a lot of younger (20-30yrs) guests, so Bret pumped up the jams and kept us all dancing!

Everyone I talked to complimented us on the music and told us how FUN our wedding was. I totally contribute this to the DJ and his stellar performance! You can't go wrong with Motor City HDJ!

He played every single song we requested and avoided our only "do not play" with no issues! He was so attentive and active with every aspect of our wedding night that I knew we were in great hands. He made sure to keep my guests on the dance floor by reading the vibe they were giving off. I have had SO many guests from our wedding ask me for his contact info because they enjoyed themselves so much. All in all, he was OUR FAVORITE VENDOR!!! Book with Brett or miss out on the greatest DJ you could have! We love you Brett!!!!

Brett is so much fun. He kept the dance floor busy all night and even came out to dance with us a few times. When a huge storm came rolling in an hour before our ceremony was suppose to start we decided to start it 30 minutes early throwing everyone off schedule, Brett got the speaker and microphone set up within 5 minutes so we could have our perfect ceremony outside. If I ever need a dj again I will be calling Brett.

My fiance and I were at my cousins' wedding in the Detroit area when we came across Motor City HDJ. We liked what we heard and the way Brett presented himself, so we talked to him a little bit at the wedding. And then a little bit more via e-mail and phone calls.

One of the big things that we liked about Motor City HDJ was that they would not charge us for travel to our wedding in West Branch, 2.5 hours from where he was located. Even after I moved to West Branch and Brett wanted to sit down and meet with me, he was willing to meet me in Frankenmuth, half way from my house to where he was located.

Another big thing we liked was that the music was not too loud that you had to yell at someone sitting next to you to have a conversation. We have been to many weddings since we heard Motor City HDJ and the music was too loud.

When my fiance and I met with him, it was at our convenience, in a place that we had chosen. When we got to the coffee shop he explained everything that was in the contract so we understood everything.

The website that they use is great! You are able to set up a timeline for your event, tell who is involved in the event, and also make a must play and do not play list. I was also able to tell him everything we wanted and didn't want and he did everything we wanted. We allowed people to make requests at our wedding, but Brett told us that if we didn't want people requesting song he would have not taken any requests.

Brett was very good with contacting us about the music and everything else that was going on with the wedding, not just the music aspect. We had a lot of bumps along the way while planning our wedding but NONE of the problems we had were form Motor City HDJ.

We really liked his personality and the way he related to my fiance though the whole process. He was just a fun person to be around and work with. We would totally recommend Motor City HDJ to anyone who is planning an event where they are looking for a DJ.

Brett was an EXCELLENT choice for our wedding. From the get-go he was enthusiastic, excited, and determined that we would have a great time at our wedding... and we did!

There were two things about working with Brett that really made an impression on me; his communication and willingness to do whatever we needed of him. I always knew that if I needed anything I could just text him and it would be taken care of. Brett wanted to ensure that we worried about NOTHING the day of our wedding and he did a fantastic job at that. He was always checking in with us throughout the night, but not so much that it was annoying. He energized the dance floor when it was starting to get slow and he kept the night running smoothly!

If I were to plan a wedding all over again I would most definitely book Brett... he was outstanding!

It was an absolute pleasure to work with you on your big day! And I have to say how happy I was that we were able to coordinate and plan with you being miles away. Skype took the hassle out of everything and I'm thankful for that. Your wedding was gorgeous and classy! Your guests were full of energy and that's what we thrive on! Thanks for giving us the opportunity and I wish you and Steven the very best!

Well where do we start...Our experience with Brett from Motor City HDJ was beyone amazing!! Brett is a professional, friendly, entertaining, energetic, MOST AMAZING DJ any bride and groom could ever ask for. Our reception went smooth as it possibly could and we thank Brett for this. He made sure we were on time with eveyrthing we had planned for our reception and we got it all in, thanks Brett for making sure we didn't miss anything. I tell everyone about Motor City HDJ and hope other brides read this and choose the best!! I have been to many wedding this year, and no DJ compared to Brett.

It has been fun and enjoyable working with someone like Brett. Hope others read this and give him a call. They will be SO happy they did. You want a memorable reception that people will remember for year....pick the only DJ in town that is worth booking....MOTOR CITY HDJ--BRETT CUMMINS....SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!

I came across MotorCityHDJ on Yelp, where I opened a thread looking for an affordable DJ in the Detroit area. Their services came highly recommended, stating they had a ton of experience and were all-around nice guys.

I was already on the fence about having a DJ as it was. We were having an afternoon wedding and were trying to keep costs low. The reception was only 3.5 hours long... I needed a good price in order to actually book someone.

I already had a few quotes and wasn't impressed with any of the prices, so what did I have to lose? I went to their website to do some research and gave them a call.

I got Brett, who was incredibly friendly over the phone. He totally understood our situation about having a DJ but gave us hope that there's good DJs out there willing to give a good price on a Sunday wedding.

We met him at a local Starbucks to sign the agreement. He went over every section of the contract in detail so we completely understood what he was responsible for and what we were responsible for. And he was incredibly friendly. His personality type gets along with everyone. I love people like that.

He accepted payment through Paypal, which was incredibly convenient for us. His website was really intuitive, with detailed forms for us to fill out with details about the ceremony, the timeline of the reception and even a music form so we could choose what songs we wanted him to play. On one of the forms, I made it clear what music I didn't want to hear and he totally stuck with that at the reception.

One thing I totally appreciated was how Brett was willing to do the outdoor music preceding the ceremony for no extra charge. We were having an extremely short ceremony, so I just wanted music to lead us down the aisle. We offered to pay extra but he said it wasn't a big deal. How sweet is that?

Up until the day of the wedding, Brett stayed in perfect contact with me. He even called me the day of the wedding to make sure I was staying calm (rain on my wedding day when the ceremony was supposed to be outside... of course I wasn't calm.) But it was a nice gesture. The ceremony was moved inside and Brett was awesome with the change of plans. He still played our processional music, jazzy music during dinner and finally dance music after dinner was served.

One detail we totally loved was that Brett wore a pink and purple tie so he matched our wedding colors! Small detail that made a big difference.

Everyone told me they loved our DJ. Some people even thought he was a personal friend of ours because he was so friendly and personable while on the mic. He played the exact music that I wanted to hear at my reception... classic rock with current dance hits mixed in. It's like he knew me my whole life with the way he nailed my musical preferences. He did perfect.

I couldn't say enough nice things about MotorCityHDJ. They turned us from an "on the fence" couple to "we totally needed a DJ" couple.

I also had some special requests that were different than a normal DJ event and he met the requests beautifully. I would highly recommend his services and would definitely use him for another event in the future.

db productions was very friendly and helpful in making a stress free wedding day. i was impressed with all the things that were done to go the extra mile and add peronal touches for us as a couple. The price was unbeatable. I was shocked at how much was done for the money we spent. It could not have been more perfect. Professionalism was perfect and nothing was overlooked. Everything was mapped out perfectly prior to that day and everything went smoothly without a problem. Several emails and meetings took place prior to the wedding to ensure there would be no mistakes and all the music and expectations were met. I would recommend from a brides perspective to use bd productions for your wedding day or any event requiring a dj. I had a blast and a perfect wedding day!!

Friday started off as a HORRIBLE day. Although it was the day of my wedding, there was tons to do and not enough time left. As the day wore on things got worse!! Anything that could go wrong went wrong. I was running late, the food still needed to be picked up and it looked like the day was gonna be ugly and dreary for an outdoor ceremony! I swear I was about to forget the whole thing since Ruell and I had already signed the paperwork and were already technically married.....and then Brett my DJ called. I guess he could tell that I wasn't doing well because he cracked a few jokes and told me not to worry, that he'd take care of everything. He let me know that he had gotten to the site earlier than anticipated and that everything there was running smoothly and that I should just take my time and not worry since they couldn't start without me.

He was calm and amazing and when I finally got there and I walked down the aisle everything went off without a hitch just like Brett said it would. Even though I told him at the last minute that I needed him to have music outside as well as inside (when originally I'd only told him inside), he totally switched everything around to accomodate me and did it so seamlessly I didn't even realize that he was setting things up and breaking things down!! I wouldn't expect that sort of accomodating spirit from anyone, especially someone who charged so little!

The msuic he played was awesome and even though people were tired since it was an evening/night ceremony at the end of a work day, he kept spirits up, played great music and made Friday the best day of my life!!

Ladies, as the brides this is supposed to be our day, yet everyone is asking us questions and we are being pulled here and there. We have tons of stuff on our minds and we have more things to think about than God ever intended one person to think about! By hiring Brett, you have one less thing to worry about. I mean not only did he make the DJ portion of my wedding run smoothly but he even calmed me down when I thought I'd go crazy. We can add counseling brides to his list of accolades! (And his going rate is much better than most shrinks!)

The DJ portion has by far been the EASIEST and certainly the least expensive part of my wedding. Brett takes all the guess work out of everything. From day one you will find that in Brett you not only have a great DJ but you also have a potential life long friend. He keeps up with and in touch with you, he does all the work and responds almost immediately to emails and phone calls. He's hilarious, he's accomodating, he's flexible, he's calm, he's patient with the crazy whims of a neurotic bride and he goes with the flow. All in all, Brett Cummins is hands down the best part of any brides' wedding preparations.

I love you Brett and we will be hiring you for EVERY event we have that requires a DJ, believe that!!

Brett has all the right music and the perfect personality to keep your party hoppin.

The night was fantastic. The process from start to finish was absolutely perfect. He was inexpensive, flexible and really kept on top of the game. He was able to find all our music even though some of our requests were absolutely off the wall. He arrived early, he set up quickly and stayed even longer than he was requested. And he even packed up quickly.

Absolutely no complaints, nothing but cheers and accolades. He's A-1, top notch, all that and a bag of chips, he's just that deal. I would recommend him to my best friend, my brother and anyone else.

I've put off writing this review for a long time because I couldn't figure out what to say. There were a lot of great things about working with Brett, including his flexibility in providing sound in multiple spaces, his interactive website, and his price point. However, there were some things that I wish were a little different. For example, he definitely had a bigger personality and more of an entertainer feel than was presented in our initial conversations. Not necessarily a bad thing, just not quite what I wanted. I also spent a lot of time choosing music for our reception without going over board (meaning I didn't pick out music to fill the entire event); however, not all of the songs I picked out were played. This was kind of a bummer for me, but honestly, I think everyone at the wedding/reception still had a blast.

So, in the end, I would recommend Brett but I would just suggest you make sure that you're on the same page re: personality and music. Since I was planning my wedding from across the country, Brett and I unfortunately didn't have a lot of chances to sync up.

I will honestly tell you I wasn't very pleased with the sound. It had WAY too much base and we couldn't actually hear what music was really even being played because of the overpowering of base. Several people including my Husband (groom) requested music that was never played. We could barely hear Tom's voice when he spoke over the microphone. I will tell you the service I had leading up to my event was great. I also feel that hardly any of the songs we put on our play lists were played.... Many guests comment on this too...
