Although the company was very helpful and attentive in the days leading up to the wedding, the ACTUAL day was not good! The owner had his assitant fill in for him during our grand entrance (we had no idea he was going to be absent during this part) and he did not play any of our songs we asked him to. In fact there was no music at this part AT ALL. It only started playing after we sat down. Also, throughout the night the dj played only 3-4 songs we asked for even though we requested at least 10. The real killer was at the end of the night he did not play our requested last song. Instead he bailed out quickly to play a gig at a bar downtown.
Dancehall DJ's was our choice to provide music for our post Rehearsal Dinner cruise the night before our wedding. Seeing as our guests needed to have a two night minimum we chartered a ferry and off we went for a music filled cruise. Our DJ was wonderful (thanks James!) and a lot of fun wrapped up in a professional package. He played a perfect mix of music and provided the Karaoke that we requested and even busted out a tune with us! This was the perfect choice for the fun 'before wedding' celebration with our guests who came from far and near to celebrate our big day. Highly recommended and right on the island, too!!
Dancehall DJ's was very easy to work with from the beginning. However, they were somewhat of a disappointment when it came to my wedding. I sent them an excel spreadsheet of all my music requests for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception 2 months prior to my wedding. At that time they said everything would be taken care of. 3 days before my wedding (when I was already on Mackinac Island and unable to access a computer) they called to tell me they couldn't open my spreadsheet! (yes, the one I sent 2 months ago!) I had to find a hotel with internet access to get the spreadsheet and resend it to them. Not the kind of stress I needed 3 days before my wedding. The day of the wedding he showed up on time with all necessary equipment and even re-set up at the ceremony site when we had a rain delay. However, during the ceremony he played the wrong song for the bridal party processional and had to be instructed by one of the groomsmen to change to the correct one. Then the version of the song I had requested that he downloaded had clapping and cheering at the end of it, not the version I wanted. It made for an interesting walk for the bridal party. Other than that, he played the correct songs the rest of the night. I had heard such great reviews about this DJ before I booked him and was very excited to have him as my DJ, but for my wedding I was somewhat disappointed in the mishaps that should not have occured.
