Ronnie stepped in at the last minute (a month beforehand) to DJ at our wedding in Cayucos. He was very kind and professional in the days leading up to the wedding and was very interested in talking and gathering information for the ceremony and reception. However, I think that something was off the day of the wedding. Ronnie became stressed because one of the groomsman asked him to try to take up a little less room on the dance floor with his equipment. Instead of trying to work with the wedding coordinator to find a compromise, Ronnie not only came to the bridal suite and exchanged some words with my maid of honor, but after she told him repeatedly I was unavailable because I was getting my makeup done, he insisted on talking to me and marched right up to me in the makeup chair and said "I am stressed." It was my wedding day, I should know about being stressed. I don't know what he expected me to do in that moment - go downstairs and rearrange the chairs and speakers myself? I told him that he needed to talk to the wedding coordinator because that is why I had hired a coordinator (so I could focus on getting ready). He then went downstairs and told my brother that I was "high strung." I did not appreciate that, on my wedding day of all days. The music during the reception was good though. I just feel the communication could have been better. Because he started off the day on the wrong foot with me and my coordinator, the reception timing didn't go as smoothly as it should have (i.e., he announced my husband and I to walk into the reception when I was still changing my shoes and our coordinator had told him it would be a few minutes). I think Ronnie is good at playing the music, but he didn't do so well handling the communication things on the day of the wedding. It caused some unnecessary stress, and I really didn't appreciate that. Maybe it was just an off day for him. It really didn't seem in character with our interactions prior to the wedding.

Ronnie did an awesome job as both the DJ and master of ceremonies at our wedding.

From the start, we knew Ronnie would be great to work with. He was very responsive by phone/email, provided an online database with thousands of songs to choose from, and if we wanted songs that weren't on the database, he downloaded them for us!

My hubby and I had our wedding in Cayucos, with a beach ceremony on the sand, an outdoor dinner on the venue's patio, and an indoor dance floor. This presented some technical challenges, considering we needed music/microphones in each of these 3 places. I was nervous about how the transitions would work out, but it went perfectly smooth thanks to Ronnie's expertise and preparation (he showed up to the venue hours before the ceremony to set everything up!) In addition, we had a friend perform a song live for our first dance, and Ronnie made sure everything was set up to make that happen.

At the end of the night I was thrilled when Ronnie surprised us with several CDs of all the songs he played, a soundtrack of our wedding to remember forever :) We are so grateful to Ronnie for all of his hard work, and whole-heartedly recommend him.

Ronnie was amazing! We hired him to provide music for my daughter and now son-in-law's wedding June 14, 2014. Ronnie not only provided the music for the ceremony and reception, he was the master of ceremony for the entire event--keeping the ceremony and reception flowing. Ronnie was so professional not only with his performance as MC and DJ but also his attire--dressed in a beautiful black suit. He felt the crowd and picked all the right songs, even an irish jig at the end. On one particular song all of our guests were singing along, so he turned down the song as guests kept singing and then turned it up again--we had our 3 seconds of fame..lol he was perfect! We've been to a lot of dances/parties with DJ's and Ronnie has exceeded all of them. We couldn't be happier with him.

Ronnie was the DJ for our wedding about a month ago and he did a great job! He read the crowd well and kept the party going. He had some fun lighting that he brought with him for our event too! It was awesome! I would definitely recommend him to others. He was a pleasure to work with. He was professional, always punctual, and brought some fun ideas to the table!

Ronnie was a great choice for our wedding. We picked him based on other people's reviews, and were not disappointed. He was an absolute class act, nothing cheesy about him, complete professional, which is what we were looking for. Our wedding needed an outdoor and an indoor setup, and he was able to transition between the two with ease. He gets to the location several hours before the event, free of charge, just to make sure there are no last-minute problems. Those types of little things can make a big difference in your vendor, and helped us feel like we had a real personal relationship with him, rather than someone simply hired for a day.

I have been to weddings before with this DJ preforming. I was completely Let down. He did not meet my expectations whatsoever. We should have met up before the wedding day in person and gone over how the day was going to flow. I was disappointed
