My experience with Denny was a lie and ultimately a nightmare.

He was very accommodating and encouraging all the way up until the actual wedding day. He even showed up in person the day before to scope everything out. This at the time was very comforting.
Denny however, did not show up to my wedding. Instead, he sent an incompetent druggy that stole alcohol and left the DJ chair during almost every song…every time he came back he smelled like smoke. There was up to 4 minutes of silence between EVERY song because he was using iTunes and clicking on the next song. He hardly had any of the songs we wanted to hear and even then when we would find one we wanted played, be would forget (2 minutes later) and play another song: drugs do that to you. When we confronted him about his song selection, he would throw his hands in the air and yell, with a slur that “Denny only gave me one week to prepare for this, what do you expect from me? I usually have over 4 months”.

My maid of honor had to stand by his side through a good portion of the wedding telling him what to play and to keep him from talking and mocking my new last name between every song.
My dad finally gave him one of our favorite CDs and said please just play track 13. He couldn’t even figure out how to put the CD in his equipment. He finally got the CD in and then took 10 minutes to make it play (all of this while my guest are standing around waiting for some entertainment). Once he got it to play he could not even figure out how to get it to track 13. When we tried to get the CD back he said it was a software program not a CD… IN 5 MINUTES, THE GUY FORGOT HE WAS PLAYING OUR CD.

We finally asked him to leave, during which he took an hour and a half because he kept stumbling around. The guy was clearly inhibited.

We have been trying to get Denny Alexander to answer/return a phone call for almost three weeks now. We have had no luck.

Denny was AMAZING to work with!! My husband and I did a "rock the reception" dance during our first dance and Denny mixed the track for us perfectly. He was very prompt to get everything to me. He choreographed the timing for my ceremony and reception, and it ran so smooth!!! I highly recommend him for your ceremony and reception!

Denny is very quick to respond and he will give you a lot of resources in order to make your song selections.
My reason for my ratings however has to do with the day of our wedding. Brides, make sure he knows this is your day and that he and all other vendors were hired to make you happy and do as you want done on your day. If you have a wedding planner let him know that they are there to do their job and he doesn't need to do it for them. Also, be sure that he knows what songs are to be played when. My girls were supposed to walk out to the same song as me and my dad and I were going to walk out at a certain point in the song. At the rehearsal I asked several times if he would play the song when the girls walk out (because he kept playing a different song when they went) and I was told 'don't worry, tomorrow it will all be right' but it wasn't. He also told my wedding party they were going to stand during all 3 of the first dances for the night (first dance, m/s dance and f/d dance) without consulting me first. I've been in plenty of weddings and my face and my feet would have been giving the bride dirty looks if she had me do that in 3" heels! When I let him know I didn't want them to do that he said, ok but the more interruptions we have the longer it's going to take for me to get out there and do introductions! So as I said, make sure he is clear on the timeline, songs, and setup that YOU want on YOUR day. If you do that, you should be good to go.

We used Denny for our wedding reception and I would recommend him to anyone! He has a lot of experience with weddings and was able to help us determine a "time line" for the reception as well as providing a list of songs for our approval before the event. He was great to work with and made our reception very enjoyable!

Denny made our reception great! The music was fantastic, and he had all our guests out on the dance floor, busting a move. He also did a fantastic job organizing all the essential reception events, so we had nothing to worry about. We went in without much of an idea what needed to happen in a reception, and what music to use, and Denny was great about helping us figure all that out. He worked in all our most special songs, and gave us a fantastic, worry-free day to celebrate with our family and friends. Denny, thanks for memories that will last a lifetime!
