Just by playing songs they know and love. Most people know why they are there and will dance without much motivation.

Rob was wonderful! Professional, courteous, punctual, and willing to listen to our thoughts and wishes. He selected music that was appropriate to the age ranges and interests of all of our wedding luncheon guests, and it was never too loud or distracting. I would definitely recommend him!

Dj Rob was great, he played all songs we wanted to hear, he kept the party moving. Rob did not play anything we didn't want to hear, the volume was at a perfect level. My one legged grandmother was even on the dance floor sporting the biggest smile I have ever seen on her face, for that alone I can not thank him enough. Great Work

Robby was all we could have asked for and more from as a DJ for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party. He was flexible as to setup and playlist, knew what made 13 yr olds tick and did everything with a sensitivity to the event and make it exactly what my daughter wanted. I would hire him in a heartbeat and recommended him to many already. He is a nice person with no pomp and circumstances and a real love to deal with.

Thank you Naomi! It was a pleasure working with you. I know the 4.5 on professionalism was meant in a different manner, unfortunately it cannot be changed once submitted i believe.

DJ Rob was an excellent dj. We found him off of Craigslist and thoroughly enjoys what he's doing. He took our interests into consideration when putting the music selections together. He was prompt, professional and really entertained the crowd. For the majority of the evening, he played continuous music, not much talking. Only to introduce the bridal party and announce the cake cutting. He was very inexpensive for the great work we conducted on our wedding day. He will be djing at our friends' wedding in the fall and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

DJ Rob was a great DJ. He knew exactly how to get our party going. He played great songs that had everyone up and dancing. I still have people asking for his contact information, so they can use him for their events. He was dressed appropriately, and handled himself professionally.
