My finance and I used John from Pro DJ KC in Sep 3, 2016. He was very non responsive leading up to the wedding. He would not return our calls nor the calls of our wedding planner. We ordered lights and few other items from, which he did not provide and he billed us for them. I would 100% NOT recommend him and would be glad to save others from this experience.

The experience with Pro DJ and John our assigned DJ was terrible. We requested and our wedding coordinator requested on multiple occasions for the DJ to call us before the wedding or meet with us. He said a few times we could call for instance at a certain time on a Friday a few weeks before the wedding. When we called he didn't answer. We requested up lights and other items such as a monogram W for our last name which NEVER happened. I think we might have talked to him live once when he was driving in his car.

His performance the night of the reception was terrible. Of note, he did not read the notes enough to know the Groom/Mom dance was between me and my wife's Mom. So he announced my Mom and I....my Mom died last year....nice touch for sure. He did a terrible job with music and few people got on the dance floor despite our repeated requests. Lastly, I requested from John a receipt via voicemail and text of what I was charged. I requested it several times, but he didn't respond once.

Thanks for the opportunity to write up this feedback. Stay away from this company.

We actually heard great things about this DJ service so that is why we went with them. The initial meeting was great but the week before the wedding is when things started to seem concerning. We actually did not get assigned a DJ for our wedding until two days before. This I assume gave the DJ very little time to prepare and look over our suggestion sheet. The day of the wedding we had a few issues with mics during the ceremony but that was easy to brush off. After the ceremony as the bride I wanted to enjoy the wedding, but most of the time I had to hold my DJ's hand to make the wedding go smoothly, even though we had a detailed conversation and go-over of the plan and details before! He forgot to announce half of my wedding party (I talked with him on how to announce names 5 minutes before he did it). He did not initiate toasts and I had to personally grab the mic to hand to my family. He did not honor any of my song requests on my sheet. He was completely out of sorts and un-aware of how to use his own company’s equipment...... and about half of the songs during the dancing portion of the night for some reason just stopped playing in the middle of the song. He did however come over and apologize many times for not being a good DJ, which was nice but not something I wanted to really focus on during my own wedding!!!!! Long story short the DJ was extremely un-professional, and unaware of how to run a wedding. I would not recommend this specific DJ, (maybe we just got the bad luck of the draw) too bad we had to pay the same price. Fortunately my photographer was amazing and actually helped make the night run smooth, which is supposed to be the DJ’s job.

Jennifer was everything we could have wanted in a DJ. She is highly professional, easy to work with, very organized, inexpensive and a great DJ! She had a good feel for what would keep people on the dancefloor and made sure to mix in our must-plays in a way that felt completely natural. We were dancing our butts off for hours! She also has experience in wedding coordination and was great at making sure things stayed on time and that we had everything we needed for each segment (e.g. making sure our champagne was there for our toasts, etc.). We had to change things around quite a bit due to a sudden downpour and she knew exactly how to rearrange the schedule to keep things flowing. I don't think the guests even realized the new order wasn't planned. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone getting married in KC!

Unfortunately we had a very unpleasant experience with this DJ company. We had follow up questions to our DJ who was assigned to our wedding and after our initial conversation we tried to reach out to her again and she never responded. The night of our reception we had a number of 5-7 minute gaps where no music was being played at all because there was a malfunction with the equipment and we had to use the venue's speakers and music for a portion of the night. Our speeches were interrupted twice with sound from the DJ stand as she was trying to troubleshoot the equipment issues. The music did not transition smoothly during the first dances with long pauses in between the songs and overall it really was disappointing.

My last straw occurred this weekend when a bridesmaid told me that the DJ admitted she doesn't normally do this work and this was one of her first jobs.

The process leading up to being assigned our DJ was wonderful and went smoothly. Their questionnaire they provide you up front was extremely helpful to my husband and I when picking out what type of music and songs we wanted to play, and when laying out the timeline of events during the reception. I honestly expected a follow up call or email from Jennifer after the night went so poorly given the professionalism displayed leading up to the event.

So many things about this company were very promising until the night of.. my caution would be to speak to and be comfortable with the DJ specifically assigned to your event. Otherwise you run the risk of being extremely disappointed like we were.

I chose Pro DJ upon a great review from my brother, but I their service did not meet my expectations.

First, I was very pleased with the responsiveness of Jen, the owner/manager (?) during our meeting to find out what we needed for our reception. She seemed to understand us and was very professional and gave us good feedback.

Our DJ, Heather, who was chosen for our event, was very dissappointing though.

First, we had been talked into adding a second speaker and music during our cocktail hour so that our guests could hear the announcement to be seated for dinner. This was never done. Our coordinator had to go around and usher people into the dining room.

We were told to directly communicate things to Heather at her personal email, and I was upset to learn, upon getting to the reception, that she had never even seen my email. This led to some problems like:

-each of our "special" dances were WAY too long because she didn't "abbreviate" the songs in any way (even with our coordinator signalling "CUT!") from across the room
-skipping some of our "must play" songs
-I asked for an announcement to take a photo with my college friends. Instead of "everyone please gather for a photo", all I heard was "let's have a shout out". A lot of people ended up missing the shot, no surprise.

Additionally, I felt like she was unprofessional and was not paying attention to our guests at all. Rap song after rap song blasted with no one dancing, with the exception of her, the DJ, who was out on the dance floor in her stocking-feet!!!. Meanwhile, I waited (ignored by her) at her booth to request a song

I wouldn't say our night was ruined, but I felt like we were not given the individual attention we were promised for our event, and that our chosen DJ was both inexperienced and unprofressional. I imagine that there are other DJs with this company who provide a very different experience, just not ours.

I got what I paid for. My wedding was earlier in the day so I got a discounted rate. I asked for a DJ that didn't have a cheesy DJ personality and what I got was a DJ with no personality & really didn't talk at all. The song I walked down the aisle to was not the correct version. I had to wait until he queued up the correct song for the wedding party dance. I wanted to have a dance with the couple who had been married the longest, but he waited until almost everyone was gone & didn't turn out as I had hoped. I was really disappointed...I wish I could have had the same experience as the other reviewers who gave good reviews.
