I was curious about what some of the bad reviews were about, and they just didn't seem to match our experience. Maybe they had a contracted out DJ (?). Kris (main DJ) played a lot of the songs we requested during the dancing portion of the reception. Note: if you have specific music you want played during cocktail hour and dinner before the dancing start, just make a playlist on an ipod and ask the DJ to press play. Can’t go wrong with that. I never trust reviews with 1 or 5 stars, which is the only reason I didn't give 5 here.
I spent hours researching DJs online. Positive Energy was on my shortlist of DJs to set-up conversations with, and was the 1st we interviewed which was in-person. I did not bother following up with others because it was clear he would work. In the end, I chose Positive Energy because he seemed professional, didn't seem too proud to play the songs we requested and click play from playlists provided for chunks of the reception. He also provided a drape, uplighting inside and outside, as well as market lighting outside. It was nice to consolidate as much as possible into 1 vendor. For DJ prices, he wasn't the cheapest (good, those guys scare me) but was far from the more expensive. Probably below the avg pricing models, and more than reasonable meeting other vendor pricing on lighting and the drape, given that I was acquiring more than just DJ services.
THE EVENT. Punchline: no problems, everything turned out as expected. Set-up looked great and was done well in advance of the wedding which was a relief. Speakers for the outside ceremony and speeches worked fine. He had backups ready (from what we were told), so not sure what happened to that bad review wedding. He played enough requested music during the dancing to satisfy us, and music he selected seemed to mesh well with our requests. He ended it well by "giving the people what they want" by accepting a one-more-song chant from the crowd.

Being out-of-towners having a wedding in San Diego, Kris made everything seemless and was very responsive to our questions and requests. He provided music during dinner and MC'd the reception. Kris had the excellent idea of projecting our names on to the dance floor (which several of the wedding guests absolutely loved and we were really pleased with, as well).
Our music selection requests were quite long and extensive and if yours are the same, I would definately encourage you to work very closely with him to prioritize/underline/highlight the songs which are most important. There were several songs that didn't get played that we would have liked that may have encouraged more of the older folks in attendance to get up and dance.
Overall, he was a great guy to work with and would definately recommend him to friends getting married in the San Diego area.

We hired positive energy productions for wedding! Kris was our DJ and he was amazing. Our wedding was on the beach and during the day so we had little hope that people would get up and dance, but his choice music made it so that almost every single guest was up and dancing! Even my 94 year old great grandmother! He made our day very special and very fun!

We worked with Greg on our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased. He was very professional and energetic. We didn't give him much to go with in regards to music requests, but he went to every table to introduce himself and to get a feel for the kind of music our guests would enjoy! He went above and beyond to make our day perfect.

We hired Kris as our DJ for our wedding. Having the right music was so important for me. I felt nervous to trust someone I didn't know to control the mood and ambiance for the wedding. But once I heard the music as I was getting ready to walk down the aisle I WAS SOOOOO HAPPY!!!! ALL the music was wonderful, the music for the ceremony, the dinner music (LOVED IT!!!!), and for the reception. He played a perfect mix for everyone and it was mixed flawlessly. This review is coming from someone who has DJ'd for years for fun so I'm very picky and have a critical ear. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM 100%
THANKS KRIS!!!!!

Kris was recommended by a friend and we were so happy with his work. He played all the music we hoped for, kept the mood light and played great music for everyone. He kept us on schedule, working with the wedding coordinator to make sure everything was on track. I didn't have to worry about a thing! It really was the best thing I could ask for! A great DJ is crucial to an awesome wedding. A bad one can really put people off and ruin your night. Kris is amazing at what he does!!!!!

Kris was so great and I would highly recommend him to anyone! It started with his being helpful and patient while we were determining our needs and providing a helpful planning sheet, but since we first were in contact he was always completely professional!

Then for our reception, we gave little guidance (short do not play list, though originally I had wanted to select EVERY song that was played) - but it was all fabulous. Our dance floor was completely packed all night and everyone commented that they'd never seen so much dancing at a wedding! The playlist was great, and he helped coordinate all the music and the few requests we did have. He even helped keep things in order during the speeches!

I am certain you will be extremely pleased if you pick them - and I encourage you to do so.
