Great people to work with ..made me feel at ease and kept the reception going!
Our power was actually out at the reception hall due to the storm and they kept everything moving and in order even without lights! Very helpful and in control so the bride doesn't have to stress!
Had a great experience. They were professional did all we asked, and the ease of picking up lighting and songs for was great. I would recommend him to anyone.
I provided him with over 8 hours of songs to play for my wedding (asked him to stick to these songs & don't play anything else). I also mailed him a USB with the songs he said he didn't have (which I paid for). Then, during my reception he came up to me & said he ran out of songs from my playlist (which he couldn't have, because by that time, it was only about 4 hours into my wedding). I told him to replay some songs & he started to play songs not on my playlist-the electric slide of all things (this was very upsetting because he agreed to stick to my playlist). I advised him if anyone wanted to request a song to run it by me-he didn't do that & just told them no requests (one of the people requesting a song was my mother-the mother of the bride)! The only good thing was the price he charged me, which was $600 for my wedding, cocktail hour & reception. I was not going to leave any feedback, but because he emailed me 3 times to leave feedback, unfortunately-this is what he is getting.
Vendor response to review
I am a little stunned since this is the first that I have heard of anything about this. As far as the reviews the system automatically sends reminder emails, I did not send them. If there was a problem I would have expected to hear about it that night or shortly after the wedding. I agreed to play off the specific playlist that you wanted against my better judgement because we are paid to entertain the guest so everyone has a good time. When you pick every song for an entire night and not let us have any input or the guest have input then that can ruin a wedding. If you recall the dance floor was only packed when a few of the new songs off the play list were playing. I had guest after guest after guest asking me to change the music from the 80's ballads you gave me to music they could dance too and my reply was "These are the songs the B&G picked for the evening". I was not going to come up to you every 5 minutes to ask you about a song. You also failed to mention that the music you provided was broken into groups such as ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, dance etc. When I said I was out of music yes I was out of Dance music. You may have provided a ton of songs but not all of it was for dance and I ran out of any and all fast songs on the list. I informed the MOH when she came up to me about the music to speed it up that I was out of fast songs. I asked her to check with you to see if I could play some songs similar to the ones on the list and she came back and said yes. As soon as I played the first song everyone started dancing again. A song later she came back up and said you were upset that I went off the list and I was puzzled since she was the one who told me you said it was ok 2 songs prior. So I went back to the list with "Total eclipse of the heart" as a dance song for a dancing crowd, which cleared the dance floor. Unfortunately you should have left the music to the professionals to please your guest and not micro-manage us. You also forgot to mention that you went as far as to provide us with a "Script" for every single word we were to speak over the entire night which I did but that was ridiculous. I am easy going and accommodate every request possible even the ones that make you shake your head. Unfortunately the 80's ballads are not what the guest come to hear at a wedding. They desperately wanted to dance but my hands were tied with your specific to the second list. I am sorry that you feel that we did not meet your standards but we did what we were asked with the list and with the MOH, who said she was acting on your behalf. Lessons learned, I no longer listen to anyone other than the B&G and I will no longer do an event with every song or word pre-picked for us. Again, sorry you feel we did not meet your standards. We hope all goes well for you and your husband.
