The first time we met R.J., I was blown away by how in tune and informative he is on all different styles of music. Being that My now Husband and I are hispanic we needed someone who knows a great deal about Mexican music... R.J. did not let us down. He dropped artists and songs that I had LONG GONE FORGOTTEN. After our meeting, I knew R.J. was our man. This man earned his Mexican "card"...

After crowning R.J. our wedding D.J... We were happy to find out that we had access to R.J.'s user friendly website to help us pick our scheduled songs, our must plays and our Never.. ever play playlists.

Up till the day of our wedding, R.J. would check up on our needs and ensured that our play lists were in order and/or if we had any questions or concerns... He is such a sweet heart.

On our big day R.J. had the music bumpin' from Selena, Celia Cruz, Banda de la arrolladora to Shakira, Pitbull and America's top 100. R.J. was able to satisfy all of our guests and they were able to dance the night away. Through out the night I received several commitments on R.J.'s choice of music such as:

"Wow, he really knows his stuff"
&
"He's pretty CHINGON for a white guy"

R.J. is fun loving and easy going Music Lover.. we consider him our friend.

I can not say enough great things about RJ. From the very beginning, RJ was professional and hilarious. He would contact us throughout the process just to see how we were and see if there was anything he could do to help. When the day finally came, he performed our ceremony and reception and it was flawless. We did not know whether we would hire him for our ceremony because our venue already had our audio needs built into the contract. However, we did not want to leave our ceremony sound to chance as it was way more important than anything else. In the end, booking him for both was the best way to go. Our guests ended up having a great time and my co-workers mentioned how amazing the music was before they spoke about the décor. RJ is also a musician in his own right and that made all the difference because he understood music in a way that a regular DJ could not/would not understand.

He was able to do a mash-up of multiple songs for my bouquet toss that my friends are begging me for a copy of. It was flawlessly executed and we owe him everything for how fun our wedding was. I wish we could have stayed and danced for longer and I don't even like dancing...lol. That's just how much fun we had. He was able to marry Reggae, Hip-Hop, R&B, Motown Music, Jazz, Blues, Old School, 80's Mc's, Gospel, and the list goes on...IN THE SAME EVENT without it coming off crazy.

I just got a call about receiving the audio from our event and we are super excited to listen to it and relive it. We honestly forgot that it was a part of our package and I am happy that RJ had the integrity to wait to give it to us until it was the caliber that was reflective of his brand.

We will probably listen to it for the first time next Friday night on our two month anniversary..lol.

Music4Life Dj's are definitely worth their weight in Gold!!

We booked DJ R.J. for our wedding this past January early on in the planning process. We first sat down with R.J. in May to discuss his services and from the get go he was extremely professional,organized and helpful. We quickly decided to book R.J. as his passion for what he does is evident and he was willing to work with us to give us the party we wanted! His follow up and follow through were incredible. He even reached out to our parents for song requests and was very courteous with guest requests at the wedding. R.J. goes above and beyond! The software he uses to capture your song timeline is straightforward and user friendly. Since I planned my wedding without a planner and on a budget R.J.'s timeline was incredibly helpful to me/us in executing our plans. R.J. works very hard and is detail oriented. He truly goes above and beyond for his customers. If you have any DJ needs I highly recommend R.J. He is not only thorough and professional he is also fun!

RJ was a pleasure to work with - he made everything so easy for us! I was impressed by his website to organize all of our ceremony/reception songs and timeline of how the night would flow! We had an incredible night with our family and friends, and he had everyone on the dance floor the ENTIRE time! We appreciated the live recordings he sent of our ceremony (it included all of our songs with our vows!) and also of my performances that I did that night (one of the songs was a song that I sang and wrote for my husband)! Thank you again, RJ, for all your help with our music to make our wedding so amazing for not just us, but for all of our guests too!

My husband and I met DJ RJ and his wife, Maria, at a wedding expo in North Austin, and we knew immediately that they were the way to go. They are incredibly warm, friendly people who spent a lot of time asking questions about Hunter and my relationship, so that they could get a feel of who we are as a couple and translate that into our music. The website I used to work on the song list (both with RJ and on my own at home) was user friendly, and I felt like I had as much or as little control over the music as I deemed fit. When it came time to choose special songs, I met with RJ and with his guidance, we created a song list that literally kept the entire party on their feet during the reception. He also contacted my mom and Hunter's moms to get a list of songs they would like to hear. This, to me, is "above and beyond" work ethic. All of the moms were so excited to have a hand in the playlist, and it made the night even more sentimental for them, which was very important to us. He also set up a separate music station so that my brother and his fiance could play the processional music they wrote for the wedding, which was not something required of him. He's just a nice guy and did it! I could not have made a better choice in a DJ, as several guests were quick to point out to me. He's friendly, keeps the crowd moving and shaking, and very flexible. Thank you RJ for filling such a big role on the best day of my life! :D

I was beyond impressed with DJ RJ Johnson with Music4Life! I had high expectations because I had read amazing reviews about him on yelp. Sure enough, he was just as wonderful as I had hoped. His online event planner was amazing and fun and definitely helped me stay organized with my entire reception planning. I was even able to use it with my wedding coordinator and other vendors to keep everyone on the same page. RJ went above and beyond with his phone calls to parents, check-in calls and texts to me, and additional meetings to ensure my wedding reception was perfect. He even helped with some creative planning to make my wedding reception unique and special. The flow of my reception was perfect and it went exactly how I wanted it to, only because of RJ's attention to detail, professionalism, and commitment to giving the bride and groom what they want. I highly recommend RJ Johnson with Music4Life to anyone and everyone looking for an exceptional DJ!

RJ Johnson was an amazing DJ! His experience and music selection was fantastic. If he doesn't have the requested music, he will do research and get the music for you. RJ is laid back in his personality, which definitely helped during the wedding planning. I didn't have to worry about anything music wise on the day of my wedding. In fact, planning the music was a fun experience, not something I felt added to my chore list of responsibilities. His website and consultations has a very structured format that makes the planning process so easy. RJ is very proactive and will get to know you as a person. He was available by phone when I needed help navigating his website to add music. He had great ideas and was able to expand upon on the ideas that my husband and I offerred. RJ is able to work with wedding coordinators, photographers, and the multiple requests he received from family members. I gave him 5 stars on value, because even though he might seem pricey on a tight budget, it was well worth the money we spent! The family reviews and memories he helped to create are invaluable. As my friends and family put it, "He is a GOOD DJ." No worries or complaints, especially since he adhered to a schedule. Service was very professional and the delivery of his service was priceless.
