People...these guys are the best. Dave at Neon Express was extremely accommodating, responsive, and professional. I'll admit I was a little worried about hiring these guys for my wedding because they're so cheap, and the DJ can make or break a wedding, but it's honestly just a great deal! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Dave was a vendor from Heaven. Where do I even start? He was so prompt at communicating with me and answering all my questions and dealing with my crazy wedding brain. The week of the wedding he set up some time for us to chat on the phone, just to make sure he knew how I would like things to go. Then, here's the craziest part: Dave gets into a CAR ACCIDENT, ON THE WAY TO MY WEDDING! Not only was he still at my venue ON TIME, even though the other people in the car accident were taken away in ambulances; he stayed the entire night, played fantastic music that had everyone dancing, and made sure that entertainment wise things went off without a hitch. Dave was incredibly flexible, bringing mics and stands for my bridesmaids to use so they could sing before the ceremony. He was also very professional, thorough, and a joy to work with. Thank you again, Dave! Everyone had a great time!!

We had Mike as our DJ and our entire wedding reception was an absolute blast! Mike picked great songs during the dinner portion of our reception and kept the dance floor occupied afterwards. He worked with us before the wedding over the phone when we discussed games and program specifics. He made sure to get lots of details and encouraged us with our choices. The night went perfectly and he was a pleasure to work with. We could not have asked for a better DJ!

We had Dave as our DJ. He was the DJ for two weddings in my husband’s family. Their price is great, but unfortunately the DJ was the only thing I have to complain about my wedding day. It started on our planning meeting. I am from Brazil and the tradition there is having the wedding march as the song the bride walks down the aisle. When I told him he was kinda sarcastic saying that is a recessional song in US. I understand he was only telling me what he thinks but I thought It was kinda rude. During our ceremony everything worked “fine”. It was an outdoor wedding. During my vows my microphone run out in battery (seriously??) but luckily he suggested us to have 2 mics and I ended up grabbing the other one to finish my talk. The problem started in the reception. My husband and I made a video about us to be played in the screen (rented from the DJ as well). I told him to play it during dinner time. I was having dinner and heard the song we had in the video and looked the video was on … NO ANNOUNCEMENT that the video would be played … no one watching. I called him and told him I was disappointed. I just asked if there was a way to keep the video in the screen without the music just so we would not have the same songs playing over again. Suddenly heard the song from the video starting again. The video was on AGAIN WITHOUT ANNOUNCEMENT. I was very upset at this point. Called him again to tell him to NOT PLAY again! For my surprise I heard him announcing the video and playing it AGAIN!! In less than 30 minutes the same songs playing over and over 3 times. I tried to forget about it and we started the speeches. When the speeches were done I said thank you the guests and said now it is time to party and an awkward silence took the room. No music… nothing. He was not paying attention. I yelled without microphone “Hey DJ” and after few seconds he brought the music on. He did kept people in the dance floor. He also played all the songs I requested and even downloaded them.

Neon Express Entertainment responded with the following comments:

It is worth noting here that I was the ONLY vendor chosen by the groom’s family, not the bride. As Cilene mentions, this was my third wedding for the Feuerhake family, and up to now everyone was happy. I have provided her with a FULL REFUND for the cost of the slide show, and while she has cashed the check, she hasn’t responded in any other way. *
Cilene emailed me saying she wanted to walk down the aisle to “The Wedding March” and provided a link to the Mendelssohn March. The two most common wedding marches are the Lohengrin March, (Here Comes the Bride) and the Mendelssohn March, (Midsummer nights Dream). Because the Mendelssohn March is faster and usually a recessional song, I wanted to be sure I wasn't confused. I said nothing about how we do things in the US. I just asked if that was the right song. *
All of the wireless microphones had NEW batteries in them. Often guests arrive with electronic devices that interfere with a wireless mic. That is why I had an extra there. *
Generally we don’t announce slideshows because when you put up a 6 foot screen next to the head table, you assume everyone will notice! After the slideshow she told me that no one paid attention, and that I should play it again, but with different music. I told her I couldn’t do that, because the music was built into the show, and if I muted it I would mute the computer and couldn’t play any music. I played it again and now the bride is FURIOUS! She feels the show wasn’t getting the proper attention because I didn’t announce it. So I announced it and played it again. *
As she admits at the end, I did keep the people on the dance floor all night. I did play every song she and her friends requested, and I did download songs for her. Specifically, I let her and her friends go on my Amazon account and buy as many Brazilian songs as they wanted, all on my credit card. I’m sorry she was dissatisfied, and I wish her and her husband the best of luck!

We had david wallace as our DJ and he was awesome. He called and set up everything with us, he was very professional and funny and got a crowd that was hard to get to dance, dance and everyone had a very good time. He was also extremely flexible as he was suppose to start at eight and ended up starting at five for us!

Marc from Neon Express did an amazing job at our wedding. He went above and beyond by dismissing our tables and making sure the sound was set up for speeches. We had kind of a different venue where set up wasn't totally clear, but Marc had no issue and got everything set up perfectly. The price was amazing, less than half of what we were quoted at other places. They let you have a lot of say in the type of music you want to have as well. Neon Express was wonderful to work with!

We had a great experience with Neon Express. Our DJ was Brenda was very friendly and accommodating to all our needs. She played all the songs we requested and even got on the dance floor a few times with us. The level of service we received for the price we paid far exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend them for your special event.
