We were very happy with Music by Bonnie. Bonnie was very helpful along the way helping us choose music for the different parts of our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception) - which was harder than I thought! She was always available and willing to chat via email or phone. Overall, we were very happy with their DJ services.

Bonnie is a total pro. We had heard her DJ and several events before hiring her and her music was always a good fit for the crowd. For my job, I've hired other DJs and I think she is above and beyond.

We hired her for our recent wedding at Dos Pueblos Ranch in Santa Barbara. She met with us in advance and walked us through all the decisions for the MC and moments during the wedding celebration that needed music. She is easy going, friendly, funny and incredibly skilled at her job. She reads the the crowd and adjusts as needed.

I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

Bonnie--I want to thank you for such great service and music at our wedding. Devon was spectacular! He played exactly what was needed but also pulled from our requested playlist, and the jazz music during dinner was perfect. He was incredibly helpful keeping us on track with all of the planned activities (first dances, cutting cake, etc.) and did so in a really calm and flexible way. All in all, he was AWESOME!!

He no doubt has a great boss who showed him how to be relaxed and fun but also professional. You rock Bonnie!!! Thanks again.

Music by Bonnie was recommended to us by our venue wedding planner and we are so happy that we went with her! Planning the wedding from out of town was a little nerve wrecking, but Bonnie was able to help us via email and phone calls and was able to set my mind at ease. She was able to incorporate all of our song requests and communicate all of our discussions, wants, and needs to her Associates who were our DJ's for the big day. Jill & Melissa did a beautiful job. They kept the music in perfect harmony with our "wedding vision" the Ceremony and reception ran smoothly with their song transitions and the dance floor was packed for the PARTY! I only wish we could have had a longer wedding to dance and party it up with our guests! Everyone wants us to have another wedding so we can keep the party going! How soon is too soon for a vow renewal party?! Thanks Bonnie & Company!

Bonnie did a great job getting us ready and preparing everything for the day of the wedding. Her DJ, Larry did an amazing job the day of. He played a great mix of music and people were on the dance floor the entire time and had a fabulous time. We could not have asked for anything more. The sound for the ceremony was perfect and the music all around was awesome! Thanks for making it a day to remember.

I couldn't imagine a better DJ for our wedding. Bonnie was the DJ and MC for our wedding reception at the Arts and Letters Café in Santa Barbara. When choosing a DJ for our reception we were very particular and wanted someone who could help us throw a great party but do it with style and grace. We needed someone who understood our vision and when we met Bonnie we knew that she was exactly that person. She made us feel at ease about everything and we were so thrilled when she told us she would be able to perform our reception herself. Our reception went absolutely amazing thanks to Bonnie as she performed her duties with every bit of professionalism and elegance that we could have possibly hoped for. Our vision was realized and our reception was the greatest party that we could have ever imagined! Bonnie is extremely talented and her reputation is unmatched. I would highly recommend that you contact her early and book her services for your event before someone else does. Thanks Bonnie!

Bonnie was a joy to work with leading up to our wedding at Rincon Beach Club, and she was an awesome DJ who kept people on the dance floor all night long.

For leading up to the wedding, we had specific requests when it came to the music that played at our ceremony and wedding. Bonnie always ensured that the requests would be executed accurately, which they were. Additionally, we leaned on her to make recommendations for music like our recessional song. She pulled together info from us like music we grew up listening to, what we liked listening to together, concerts we had recently gone to, etc. and hit it out of the park with our recessional song. We also had a unique request with certain cultural songs being played that my dad sent as a shared file. She incorporated them in a non-disruptive way to the flow of the reception. She met with us multiple times leading up to the wedding and was really responsive in between meetings by email and phone.

At our wedding, she was the epitome of professionalism. She accommodated a last-minute change to the speech intros, adjusted the type of music as we got later into the evening to please the younger crowd, and dealt with multiple guests who had tons of requests.

We had the best experience with Bonnie and have already recommended friends use her - one already has :). I'd recommend Bonnie and her team to anyone looking for a professional, experienced DJ to create a wonderful experience for them and their guests.

The easiest and most stress-free part of my wedding planning and the wedding day was working with Bonnie. Bonnie brings expertise, professionalism, and fun! She not only managed to provide music for my wedding in three different locations, but did so flawlessly. She is so experienced on knowing how to read a crowd, handle issues that arise, and making sure things run smoothly that I never worried about logistics. The music was perfect too! I am so happy Music By Bonnie and Company- DJs for Special Events was part of my special day.

Bonnie did an amazing job as the DJ for our wedding. We found ourselves looking for a DJ fairly late in the game, and we were so fortunate to be recommended to Bonnie. She was friendly, helpful, and informative from the very beginning, answering all of our questions, providing lots of details, and generally just being lovely to talk to.

She did an absolutely fabulous job at the event - working both our ceremony and reception. Everything was flawless. Our videographer, officiant, and others performing in the ceremony commented on how professional and helpful Bonnie was for the ceremony, and pretty much everyone talked to us about how amazing the music was at the reception. Bonnie had great selections for the cocktail hour, and she kept the dance floor packed all night. She was so attentive to our wishes, playing all the songs we requested and having a good feel of what else to play based on that list. She was non-intrusive, professional, and really a true joy to work with. Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!

I cannot even begin to express how happy we were with Music by Bonnie! Bonnie was the DJ for our wedding and she handled both the reception and the ceremony. The planning process was painless and she was so receptive to all of our questions (not to mention all the times we changed our minds on our music selections). When the big day came, I didn't spend one moment stressing about the music. Bonnie was set up, ready to go, and even came over to calm us down before the big moment. She played an excellent variety of music that catered to all in attendance, and the dance floor was packed all night. I would recommend Music by Bonnie to ANYONE who is looking for a DJ for an event. Personally, they are the only company I will ever use again!!!

Music was important to us when planning our wedding - and we were planning it far away from the Ventura/Santa Barbara area, so we weren't able to meet with any DJs. After researching some options, we began communicating with Bonnie and after one phone call with her, we never looked back. Bonnie was marvelous to work with! She's honest, professional and has a passion for music. Even though we loved working with Bonnie, we didn't personally get to have her as our wedding DJ; but she booked us with Larry... and Larry was just as wonderful! He was the perfect balance of mellow and enthusiastic. We highly recommend the Music by Bonnie team!

We loved having Julia (one of Bonnie's DJs) work our wedding, her professionalism and demeanor were just what we were looking for. She was able to keep everything moving and make sure things happened at the appropriate times without taking over the wedding or putting the emphasis of the evening on herself at all. She kept on top of the timeline and kept it running smoothly, but frequently would check in with us before switching to the next thing to make sure we were ready, as it was our wedding and she respected that. She also did a good job sticking to our music suggestions but honoring requests made by guests as well (which we indicated we wanted her to do). She balanced out the styles of music well to make sure all guests had something they enjoyed. There were people on the dance floor the whole night.

We had them contracted for 5-6 hours, but how it ended working was great, she would just check in with us as the night wound down asking whether we wanted her to start wrapping it up or keep it going, so that she was sure not to end the night before we were ready. It was just what we were looking for. Working with Bonnie and Julia was a pleasure and helped make our wedding a success.

I had the pleasure of working with Bonnie for my wedding on Sept. 21, 2012 and I can't believe I've waited even this long to post a review! The ceremony was perfectly executed and once the dancing started at the reception, it didn't stop until the speakers were unplugged! I know that there were a number of requests, both from us and the guests, and Bonnie found just the right way to fit everything in and keep the party going- which was our top priority! From the moment we were introduced to Music by Bonnie back in January, we knew that we were sold. We can't stop talking about how perfect our wedding was... and it couldn't have been possible with out them. We'll be sure to make it known wherever we can that couples in and around the SB area should look no further when it comes to a DJ. THANK YOU!!!

From the moment we were introduced to Music by Bonnie back in January, we knew that we were sold. We can't stop talking about how perfect our wedding was... and it couldn't have been possible with out them. We'll be sure to make it known wherever we can that couples in and around the SB area should look no further when it comes to a DJ. THANK YOU!!! Read less

Outstanding service. Bonnie worked with us closely throughout the entire preparation process and assigned a DJ who was professional and FUN! We were searching for a DJ who knew not only the right music to play, but also how and when to talk with the crowd without going too far, and she nailed it. I highly recommend Bonnie to anybody looking for a DJ service.

Bonnie was an incredible vendor to work with from start to finish! At our first meeting, we immediately knew we wanted her for our DJ. Bonnie is very professional as well as friendly and personable. She gave us a thorough description of what to expect the day of our wedding. We communicated through email and she always responded promptly. We emailed a last-minute question to Bonnie and she called me within 15 minutes to discuss it. She was absolutely amazing during our reception. She kept everything moving seamlessly. Bonnie had all ages (from 15 to 99) out on the dance floor! Our guests are still calling us to say how much they enjoyed our celebration. If you're looking for a DJ in the Santa Barbara area, choose Music by Bonnie. Your guests will be entertained and you won't have to worry about anything on your special day!

We used Bonnie for our ceremony music at our wedding at Alice Keck Park and reception across the street at USSB. Her services were wonderful, the music at the ceremony went on without a hitch and the music at the reception had the dance floor full all night. She had a great mix of music that appealed to both my friends (20s-30s) and immediate and extended family (40s-60s).

She was incredibly easy and pleasant to work with and worked well and communicated effectively with all the other vendors I used.

I initially was hoping to spend a little less on the DJ, but as I started to look around at my options I realized that all the services that Music by Bonnie included (ceremony music, microphone, etc) really made her prices affordable. She did such an excellent job at the reception that I really feel like her services were worth much more than I had paid!

Awesome DJ. Played all the right music and kept all our guests dancing all night long!!! We had a list of songs and she incorporated them really well with some smash hits that got everyone dancing at one time - from us to our parents and our grandparents. It was a blast! The dinner music was romantic but not cheesy. She knows how to read a crowd and has a great selection of music. She also made me feel super comfortable with everyone and let me know she had everyone under control every step of the way. I'm so happy we went with her. Great choice!!!

On the wedding day itself she was on time, very professional, and made the reception a lot of fun. Bonnie will always have a special place in our hearts for what she did for us on such an important day.

Bonnie was a dream to work with!
We had worked together a few times before so she had an idea what I was looking for and actually recommended the caterer that we chose (who we loved!).
She made planning the songs and time-line really easy and had great input where we needed it.
During the wedding she made toasts really simple and naturally integrated into the party, she made announcements at just the right times and other than that she kept it about the wedding (hard to find in a DJ).
Most importantly she kept everyone out on the dance floor through the very last song! We have amazing pictures of everyone dancing and having a great time (from the kids to the grandparents and everyone in-between).

She matched the mood of the room perfectly, picked it up at the right points and kept everything right on schedule. Even my grandmother was "cuttin a rug" :) I had the best evening of my life and Music By Bonnie was a huge part of that. She is the best choice, don't bother with anyone else.

She really knew what we wanted and listened to our musical requests etc. More importantly, she really kept the vibe going and knew how to read the guests and what they wanted to hear. I loved her. My husband and I had so much fun listening to music. She also helped us coordinate a classical guitarist for our ceremony and he rocked! The music was beautiful and I'll always remember it as I walked down the aisle. This is an exceptional business that really cares about their clients...book them!!

We were really fortunate to have chosen Music by Bonnie to help us make the most of our special day. She was very professional but still had a personality and was amazing to work with. She answered all of our questions promptly and even offered to help us contact some of our other venders that were not being responsive. On our wedding day we had to change our cocktail hour music due to the venues rules but she handled it in stride and never missed a beat. Our entire event went off without any sound disturbances; which was great because I have been to a lot of weddings that experienced technical difficulties and it tends to disrupt the vibe of the wedding. Bonnie was also really great about reading the crowd and playing the perfect music for every moment and our guests have complemented us on how much they loved and enjoyed our music. We would definitely recommend Bonnie to not only was she a joy to work with but she was also very price competitive which is always important because it is really hard to stick to your budget.

We didn't give her too much direction with the music and everything she chose was just perfect. She did the amplification for our ceremony, music for our cocktail hour and our reception. I had trouble picking out a song to dance with my Dad too, so she picked one out for us and it couldn't of been better! I even got a little teary dancing with my Dad! Bonnie really is good at what she does and is just a wonderful person to work with! I highly recommend Bonnie as a wedding DJ! :)

During the day of the wedding she showed up on time, set up quickly did an excellent job of making announcements, creating a great song mix, keeping the energy high, insulating the bride and groom of any potential issues, and was just generally a pleasure to work with. We'd hire her again in an instant. Thanks Bonnie!

My wife and I chose Music by Bonnie (Bonnie Hope, http://musicbybonnie.com/) as the DJ service for our wedding in May 2011. Bonnie not only helped us with the standard DJ fare for our reception, she also put together a special amplification package for our ceremony, which included live singing by two choirs in a challenging outdoor acoustic near the beach at Chase Palm Park. My wife and I are both musicians and knew exactly what we wanted for the ceremony and reception, and Bonnie helped us actualize our vision with all the necessary attention to detail. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Bonnie was easy to work with at every step of planning and execution. She was more a friend than a vendor by the end of the reception.

This is exactly what we wanted, but if you want someone who's going to be telling jokes and stuff, that's not her. She is flexible and happy to play whatever you want.

We supplied her with our own cd's with music and the DJ played everything just as planned. He was the best. Right now i can't remember his name....normally i can...right now it escapes me. They were so professional. Also i liked that they LISTENED to what we wanted. We didn't want the chicken dance and we wanted some very obscure music. They helped out so much and didn't once complain that what we wanted was beyond what they could provide. Music is very important to us and our wedding music turned out PERFECT. Just PERFECT!! We made a cd copy of all the music and still listen to it. Tell them exactly what you want and you won't be dissapointed. ROCK ON!

Bonnie MADE our wedding! We were really nervous about having a DJ instead of a band and Bonnie ended up being MUCH BETTER than any band we could have hired. I went to 7 weddings this year that all had bands, but none of the bands rivaled the energy that Bonnie brought to the dance floor.

Our dance floor was packed the entire night (with both young people and my parents friends). People had to peel themselves off the dance floor to cool off for a few minutes. She ready the crowd perfectly and kept the energy high (which was exactly what we wanted). She understood exactly what type of music we liked and played all of our requested songs - but also added others that perfectly complimented our list. I would actually trust her without a list to just read the crowd and play at her discretion.

I've had so many people tell me that they loved the BAND that played at our wedding - her sound system is so great and the energy was so high, people remembered it as live music.

We would definitely recommend her to anyone getting married in the area.

Bonnie was great and kept the party going! Her cues were on time, she played the music we gave her and when we wanted it played, during the dancing she also added her own variety to keep the party going. Absolutely everyone was on the floor dancing the entire evening. Extremely professional and easy to reach. I would highly recommend Bonnie.

At our initial meeting with Bonnie, my husband and I appreciated her enthusiastic, warm and authentic desire to contribute to, and make a difference with, us on our special day. Bonnie learned our “story” and wanted to be a part of it. There was no hard sell. Instead, we felt special, unique and safe with Bonnie; we felt we could trust her and came away excited about her as much as she was excited about (and for) us. This was not just another DJ gig for her….

I had such a good time collaborating with Bonnie to create the song/music list. Once she heard my general ideas for different types of music during the day, she suggested other artists and songs that were similar. We did this over the phone using YouTube and I again felt a connection with Bonnie that was so satisfying and fun. I totally trusted her experience, expertise and intuition to build a great body of music for us, including a few I had chosen from an artist she didn’t know.

The result was perfect. She was unobtrusive (she told us the focus of the day was not about her—it was us!), and extremely flexible when we had to cut out 2/3 of our dance time. Bonnie is the consummate professional: she delivers just the right music in a way that is totally satisfying. We highly recommend her.

Bonnie provided DJ services for our wedding in the Santa Ynez Valley. She was amazing and a true pleasure to work with! We provided her a list of several songs that we loved for various reasons, some relatively obscure or not typical wedding songs, such as Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown," and she was more than accommodating and played at the perfect time during the reception -- a total hit!! She also played the genre of music, with some complementary variation, at other parts of the wedding, e.g., cocktail and dinner music. We highly recommend Bonnie for your event -- she listens and executes like a true professional, gave us suggestions and feedback on our other vendors based upon her professional interaction with them, leaving us nothing to worry about music-wise on our wedding day. Thanks a million, Bonnie!!

Bonnie was a delight! We provided her some songs that we absolutely wanted to play that day and she did a good job adding to that list. We're from Texas and had some Texas country on our original play list and she did get a little friendly with cheesy country music, but we mentioned it to her and she immediately changed it up. Our party was on the dance floor the whole time to music we all loved!!

Bonnie was amazing!!

From our very first meeting with her we knew that we had to have Bonnie DJ our wedding!! My husband was very skeptical about having a DJ that would be too vocal at the wedding, if you know what I mean. Bonnie was perfect, she spoke at the perfect times and helped with the flow of the party. The whole process with Bonnie was very seamless. We made a list of the songs that we would like to hear and the songs that we must hear and she executed to a T. She was very helpful in coordinating with the best man who played the guitar for the processional and it turned out fantastic. Each part of our event had a different musical theme and Bonnie handled it perfectly.

We would highly recommend Bonnie and her crew for anyone looking to have blast at their wedding and have no worries about the music. There are so many things that go into planning a wedding and if there is one thing that you can be comfortable with handing off you want to do it. Bonnie took all of our worries away!! If we have a party again that needs a DJ Bonnie is first on our list!!

Thank You again Bonnie for making our day so much fun!!

I liked Bonnie Hope herself but we had someone else from her staff as our DJ. We gave a set list of music for the processional for the ceremony but each song ended and started abruptly and did not flow so that kind of killed the mood. The DJ also made a slightly offensive joke during the cake cutting.
