DJ by the C
DJ by the C was a good no-fuss choice for a wedding DJ. It is run by Carl, a really easygoing, friendly guy. The only problem was that Carl was not available to do our wedding (we didn't know this until a few weeks prior to the wedding), so we got passed on to one of the other guys. The other DJ was competent and professional but he also played a few songs on our "don't play list" and lots of people couldn't hear our wedding vows because the speakers were sitting on the ground in the front (they probably should have been raised). Despite all that, we were still happy with them and I would still recommend booking DJ by the C.
AMAZING! Great at reading the crowd and mood of the wedding. He kept the wedding moving at a great pace, in relation to when people finished dinner, when we started toasts, all the dances. He was flawless. (except for calling my sister Melina instead of Melinda)
Not over the top very relaxed, fun and professional. It felt like he was holding the party together, but WE were the stars. He didnt talk unnecessarily and everything he said purposefully made our event better.
Played not only music we loved (sent him types of music we liked), but worked in ALL the guests requests seamlessly. Never a gap in the music, faded it in/out appropriately for events. Ex: instead of starting its raining men from the beginning, faded it in to the chorus so it worked better.
ALWAYS responded ASAP to e-mails. Once I sent him an e-mail at 10:00pm, he responded at 12:00 saying he received my e-mail and hoped everything was well, he just got back from a wedding, but would respond in the morning. And he DID respond in the morning. This was GREAT after playing the e-mail game with other vendors, where you wait a day or two and arent sure if they received it.
Got us our drinks at dinner, making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
Met with us twice before the wedding to make SURE he had everything right.
None./ price? He was over our price, but worth it!
** This was one of the best weddings a lot of people have been to, almost everyone stayed to the end, the dance floor was always packed and I credit a lot of this to Carl.
