Sadly, we had a horrible experience with Johnny and his company. We hired one of his partners 9 months before our wedding after meeting him at an open house for our venue because he seemed like he would be a great MC/DJ and had experience at our venue even though he was pretty expensive. A couple months before the wedding we tried to get in touch with him via phone and email with no luck. It took going through our Day of Coordinator to get in touch with him. When we talked with him he informed us that he would no longer be doing our wedding and that his partner, Johnny, would be taking care of it. When we complained about the lack of communication and lack of professionalism with this we were met with a lot of attitude but chose to ignore it since we were so close to the wedding. However, it just got worse. During our ceremony, Johnny was outside on his phone so several of the music queues were not done. He brought along his girlfriend and tried to pretend as though she was his assistant without prior consent. He mispronounced my husband’s name several times. All of his announcements were inaudible and our Day of Coordinator ended up having to repeat all of them. We gave him a list of requested songs and he played just a few of them. Since the wedding I have tried getting in touch with Brad and Johnny about all of the issues and have not received any responses.

We had Johnny as our DJ. He didn't have his equipment put together right at all. No one, and I mean no one could hear our vows. Second, he played good music, but wasn't interactive. Our crowd needed lots of motivation, and he didn't provide it. Third, he took his shirt off in our reception hall!?! Seriously. I don't pay you to strip. We know it was hot. I was hot, everyone was hot. Remember I was in an Italian satin ball gown. Super hot! For paying as much as we did I wouldn't hire them for another event, or even give referrals. Our wedding was August 13th, 2016 in Yelm.

The "owners" response to my review.
Actually I did not take my shirt off in the reception hall. The music for the ceremony was perfect nothing wrong with the gear. And your guest really weren't in to dancing much. You had a family beef, and the DJ is not a counselor. Sorry.

I would not recommend this vendor due to their lack of professionalism and shady business practices. I found out by chance from my caterer a few weeks ago that my DJ (Becka) was no longer with the company and even though I had paid an extra premium to have her specifically as my DJ, I was not notified or contacted at all. This was at the end of March, my wedding is in July, and I found out that the DJ has not been with the company since the beginning of January. When I reached out to the owner (Johnny) to clarify what was going on, he offered me $100 off my total. When I declined and said I'd prefer a refund of my deposit, he responded with an incredibly rude and unprofessional email that sealed the deal. So now this company will end up keeping my $300 deposit despite the fact that I repeatedly and politely explained my situation to them. I will not be using this vendor for my wedding.

Pros: easy to book, online contract and bill pay, had the music i wanted, no odd gaps in music, no equipment issues. Ceremony and reception were at different parts of the venue and he offered to move his equipment across the venue and not charge me a 'second location' fee, which I greatly appreciated. His "what i want" forms were very simple and easy to work with, plus we reviewed them over the phone (which was awesome).

Cons: Johnny is a bit pushy to get you booked. I sent him the "what i want" forms and we reviewed over the phone, and he still did some things that I requested he not do (such as open mic for toasts and having disco lights). Was a little pushy with my speakers making toasts, hovering behind them. Would start and then stop music only partially through to switch to another song- so some songs I loved got only a minute of play. He plaid "Love and Marriage" for the cutting of the cake, which felt really inappropriate.

If you know exactly what you want played for exactly everything, and don't want to spend a ton of money on music, he's a great vendor.

A wedding is a once in a lifetime even... The good things is everything else was perfect... Other than the DJ. We would not recommend viva productions. Myself including our some of our guest were very disappointed on the music. I had to ask Jonny about 4 times then I gave up to play our list of music. Very few if any Spanish songs were played(actually) it was just 2. I informed from the beginning and even when I emailed and talked to him that this was a multi cultural wedding. My family was disappointed that only English or was played besides during the reception and the dance with my father and one reggaton song. Also, the mother of the groom was very sad and upset that the step mother was called to dance before her with the groom which on the email I sent and new timeline I even specified the order. She thinks he did it on purpose because as she was recording our first dance he kept interrupting her asking who the father of the bride was and she kept trying to hand jester to him that she was recording and he didn't get the hint. He not once tried to get the guest dancing or pumped up as a dj especially with experience should do. The good part is the kids all had fun but it would have been nice for my aunts and uncles to enjoy Mexican music I listed and was requested.

Where to begin? When we first contacted them, we worked with Becka. Then when we were all ready to sign a contract, they went radio silent. Come to find out that Becka was no longer with them. They offered us a discount for the trouble, but it wasn't anything extraordinary. We were assigned a DJ about 6 days before our wedding. We confirmed all of our music selections with him and everything looked good! Then on the day of, the individual we were supposedly assigned did show up, but he brought another DJ with him(who seemed to be in training), and then he left our venue immediately after the ceremony. The trainee he left with us was incapable of making even simple announcements and after he butchered our introduction we requested that our day of coordinator handle the remainder of the evening.

All in all, this company didn't have a major negative impact on our event, but unfortunately that is about the nicest thing I can say about them.

Viva Productions (Becka) was absolutely amazing! My husband and I knew from the start that we wanted her as our DJ for our special day. She kept the crowd alive and kept the flow going great, never a dull moment. I had multiple people come to me later saying how great our DJ was and wanted her information for their events.

Becka- Thank you so much for being a part of our special day!! We will be recommending you to everyone we know who is having a wedding coming up

Becka was AWESOME and did an amazing job as both the DJ and MC at our wedding. She was very professional and was fantastic at helping coordinate the flow of the day with our day-of coordinator. Everything was timed perfectly, all of the equipment worked really well, she had all the songs we wanted, and was even willing to customize our first dance song. Every time we met with Becka we were impressed and even more sure that she was the perfect choice. She was very classy as an MC, going table to table to dismiss our guests for dinner instead of adding extra noise by announcing over the mic. She even surprised us with explaining the story behind the tradition of cake cutting before we cut our cake--something we never really knew and was really cool to learn, as well as a special treat for our guests! We got everything we wanted in a DJ and it was a great value for our budget. We cant recommend this company enough, they were great and helped make our day even better.
