Simply put, Damon was phenomenal. He is a breath of fresh air in an indstury that reeks of cheese. I planned my wedding from across the country, and it just so happened that he was free to meet one afternoon while I was in town. He invited me to his home for our first consultation, which was really accommodating, since my schedule was tightly packed. His manner put me completely at ease, and it was clear that we felt the same way about the DJ's role at a wedding - he's there to keep the music playing and help move things along, but in a backstage, behind-the-scenes kind of way. So many DJs use a wedding as a platform for their own posturing and goofy gimmicks - I'm not the type of person to say the wedding is all about the bride, but it's definitely not all about the DJ! Damon made me feel 100% confident that with him as our DJ, it would be all about class. He was extremely flexible and accessible, which is crucial for someone planning long-distance, and whatever questions I had or ideas I gave him, he followed up and knew just what to do. His announcements were crisp and clear, and he worked well with the waitstaff and other vendors to coordinate the first dances, meal service, etc. He played music that was right in line with our tastes, and the dance floor was almost never empty. I surprised my husband with a serenade at the reception, and Damon had the accompaniment CD ready to go. He even had me listen ahead to make sure it was the right track. That kind of attention to detail and readiness made everything go smoothly the whole night. The DJ can either make or break a wedding, and Damon's ego-free style definitely "made it." A month later, our guests are still talking about how classy the wedding was, and I attribute a great deal of that to him.
