The DJ Crew
We used the dj crew for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception . I recommend the dj crew for all you dj needs! Well done boys!
DJ CREW was GREAT!!!! They did a great job with what we wanted!
I would highly recommend the DJ crew. They were not only entertaining but kind and considerate and went above and beyond the call of duty. We had a crowd that ranged from ages 18-73. They managed to entertain and involve all of our guests. I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation enough for the two class acts from the DJ crew that handled our reception. Family, relatives, and friends are still expressing what a wonderful time they had. You gave all of us memories for a lifetime and for that I cannot thank you enough. Sincerely. Mr. and Mrs. Kevin James Mincks
The DJ crew really worked with me to figure out exactly how I wanted my night to go. They helped me pick out a color of upllighting that would complement my venue/theme/entire wedding and it looked amazing! That night at the reception, I didn't have to wonder what to do next or where to go - they kept me informed and gave great direction without being pushy or trying to take attention away from us. They have the perfect balance of fading into the background and being in the spotlight when we needed them to be! The DJs themselves were super friendly and knowledgeable and kept the mood up the entire night! I can't tell you how many people came up to me commenting on how awesome they were! The DJ Crew really has their act together and knows what they're doing, and they're affordable too! We were suprised how inexpensive they were, we would've paid twice their price for the great job they did! If you need a DJ, you will not go wrong hiring them. I would definitely use them again and reccommend them to anyone who needs a DJ!
The DJ Crew was AMAZING! From the very beginning of planning, John Kerata was super helpful! He was available when questions arose and was always quick to respond. My husband and I had the honor of having Andrew DJ our entire wedding--ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He was fabulous! The reception was a blast! From the first dance, the dance floor was packed all night! In fact, we ended up keeping them for an extra hour and would have kept them all night had the venue allowed us! It was the best night of our lives and we owe The DJ Crew for help making it all possible! I highly recommend The DJ Crew to anyone and everyone for any event!
If you’re looking for a DJ look no more! The DJ Crew is totally awesome, my experience from day one has been incredible! John is phenomenal to work with and guided me through the process and made booking the DJ Crew a joy! Like most brides, this was my first go around getting married and I was clueless about vendors, planning etc. John did not only help with the DJ part, he also helped me book my wonderful photographer. It is totally obvious he loves to assist brides and help them in any way he can to make their day go easier. If I ever had any problems, DJ Crew had a solution. They also have an online event planner where you can add must play, do not play songs, which was great for me to get a head start on some music my husband and I wanted played.
A week or so before my wedding, Jeff (our DJ) contacted us and went over the whole reception plan with us to make sure everything ran smoothly. He was also very interested in making sure our day was perfect. I gave him a few key songs to play at certain parts of the reception and besides that I just told him to popular upbeat music and he ROCKED IT! My guests were on the dance floor the entire night, everyone loved the music!!! Jeff was totally awesome, he made our night so much fun!
Thanks to John, Jeff and everyone at the DJ Crew for being such great people to work with!
Kevin and Ryan were our Djs and I must say they were amazing. Kevin was so fun and funny and really made the night memorable. He was so willing to do everything in his power to make us happy, and he did! It was a fantastic night, in large part thanks to the DJ crew.
The DJ Crew is amazing!!! They work with you every step of the way and makes sure your wedding night is flawless . We danced the night away and loved every minute of it!! Thanks for making our night a great one !!!
Andrew and Jon were awesome! They did the ceremony as well as the reception, and it was great. They really help you through the process - they asked me what I wanted played for every event (like the cake cutting and the unity ceremony, which I didn't even think of picking songs for!). They kept the reception moving along, so we had maximum open dance floor time! They kept everyone up and dancing - I kept thinking that I would sit down after the next song, but then they'd play another song that I wanted to dance to - I never sat down, and neither did most of my friends! They did the little extra things, too, like holding the door for the wedding party and me during the wedding processional. The owner, John Kerata, was fantastic from the beginning, and always responded quickly to my questions and concerns. I can't recommend them enough!!!
Kevin and Ryan from the DJ were amazing! They gave us exactly what we wanted...a dance party! The dance floor was packed the entire night and our guests had such a wonderful time! Many of them said it was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding. Thank you DJ Crew!
The DJ Crew was awesome! They went above and beyond what I expected from a DJ. I was surprised how great they were outlining the night perfectly. From fine details of dinner to dancing the night away. They made sure everyone had a great time; it was their top priority! It was nice to feel taken care of. They treated my wedding as an honor, not a duty. I would recommend the DJ Crew to everyone!
DJ Crew was great. The communication was great and their website was easy to navigate. Mike Dixon did a wonderful job as our DJ and John Kerata helped us feel comfortable during the planning process. Mike played everything that we asked (more importantly, stuck to the "do not play list") and commanded the reception well. I cannot thank them enough for their service.
They did fantastic. Very fun and personable to everyone at the reception. So many guests came up to us and said good things about them! Such a good choice and they played excellent music. They always kept the dance floor full!
The DJ Crew surpassed all our expectations - my husband and I have a unique musical taste and Kevin (our lead DJ) made sure he researched and included music we would like. We had several special, out of the ordinary requests that he happily fulfilled. From beginning to end, our experience with The DJ Crew was phenomenal. Any questions or concerns we had were promptly answered, and at 11:00 pm we still had 20 people on the dance floor. The bartender said he'd never seen so many people dancing at a reception. Kevin and Kyle responded wonderfully to our crowd and many are still talking about how great the music was. SOOOO very pleased :-)
The best part of our wedding was the DJ Crew.... we are still hearing compliments from our guests.
Dj crew did an AWESOME job at my wedding this past May. I wouldn't have changed a thing. They kept
The mood going all night... Dance floor was never empty !! They were funny yet professional. They also kept the wedding so organized so I, as the bride, was worry free :)
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!! None of our guest had anything bad to say about the music! We left it up to them to decide what the crowd was responding to, and they ROCKED it!!! We had guests up and on the dance floor all night. We cannot say enough wonderful things about these guys!!
The DJ Crew played my cousin's wedding last September and did an amazing job, so I knew (even before we got engaged) that they would be DJing our wedding. They are FAR from your typical wedding DJs - they really work to keep the crowd on the dance floor and keep everyone in party mode. Jeff & Kevin did a fantastic job of making sure that we were taken care of, that our requests were being met, and that we knew what was going on for every moment of our reception. Our guests raved about how great the DJs were, and I have recommended them to numerous people.
Fantastic DJ! They did a great job overall. We highly recommend!
The dj crew dj'd my oct 2nd wedding at Gervasi Vineyard @ north canton
The weather was crapy but Phil & Zack helped the guests and my wedding party forget about the cold!
Before the wedding John was great about helping me with questions through email or phone (even if it was 11pm and my original dj backed out!!!!)
Any time or place I had a question or concern or just being a bridzilla..lol...The DJ CREW was always there for me!
These guys were great. Set up all the paperwork online which is nice and convenient for us people that work crazy schedules. They called us a few days before the wedding and went over everything with us in person which was nice and made it easier to go over the flow of the night. It was nice to see 2 guys show up in tuxedos to a wedding!!
Our wedding was a huge success, thanks in large part to the awesome DJ service provided by DJ Crew. Kevin was the DJ for our wedding and kept the crowd engaged throughout the night. They talked with our daughter and her fiance a few days ahead of time to understand the types of music they wanted. Kevin talked the wedding party through the schedule for the evening and gave us pointers on how to set the tone for a fun evening. Then they provided relaxing music during dinner followed by one song after the next that got the majority of our guests out on the dance floor for a good part of the night. Everyone had a wonderful time.
I chose The DJ Crew after speaking with and meeting with several local Cleveland/Akron DJs. By far, The DJ Crew was the most professional, knowledgeable and reliable. They promptly returned all of my calls and answered my questions, and even when the lead DJ had some personal issues, he was transparent about what was going on but never let it affect the quality of services he provided.
We worked with John and Andrew, and they took care of everything before and at the wedding. John made sure everyone's names were pronounced correctly - and that I always had a drink in my hand! I would recommend The DJ Crew to anyone, especially for a mid to large sized wedding.
Our reception was perfect!!!! Jeff and Jeff did an AWESOME job!!! Very professional and kept the reception moving, exactly like we asked them to! We wouldn't have changed a thing!!! Worth every penny!!
The Dj Crew, dj'd by wedding sept 16, 2011. They deserve more than 5 stars...The day started off behind and as a bride i was stressed out but Phil and Zack were great!!! Phil, played everything that i can remember wanting as well as some requests. They both were awesome, providing constent entertainment as well as the perfect transition between dinner to dance music. AFter some of my older crowd the party kicked up a notch and they were amazing. One thing my mom loved was the fact she could actually here people at her table, since my mother isn't a dancer lol. They cordinated everything and I didn't have to worry about a thing!!! They gave me everything i could hope for in my special day. Thanks to The Dj CREW and to especially Phil and Zack!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They also provided my ceremony music..so thanks bunches!!!!!!
DJ Crew was great. Just before our wedding they changed the way they do the pre-wedding meeting from a face to face meeting to a survey type thing online. Although the online survey was convenient I believe things might have been just a bit better if we still did the face to face.
I would recommend them to any friend who was looking for a DJ. We had a blast and they played a great variety based off our survey.
John K. and his DJ partner were amazing for our wedding! They went way above and beyond what I thought was required of a DJ, all very gladly. John was professional, entertaining (not cheesy), and classy. I was very picky about a DJ, because I've been to weddings where the DJ can make or break the mood. I've seen some very cheesy DJs or just bad service, forgetting to introduce bridal party members, introducing the groom by the wrong name, etc., so I wanted to be sure to get a good, reputable DJ for our wedding. We saw John K. and the DJ Crew at another wedding the year before ours, and liked them so much, we booked them right away! They played great music all night long, and kept the dance floor packed. They even helped to hold my train as I prepared to walk down the aisle, and carried it over a puddle for me, so it wouldn't get wet! They coordinated with our ceremony musician (even though they were only hired for our reception, not the ceremony), giving cues to him when my dad and I were about to walk. As an added bonus, they were a ton of fun and very personable! Highly recommended!
A-MA-ZING. We wanted a party and the DJ Crew gave it to us. When we told John we wanted the biggest and best entrance ever - he dove right in. He coordinated with our lighting team, mixed a special version of the song we came out to, helped my bridal party set off sparklers and even sent us youtube videos to help us choreograph our dance moves. It set the mood for a good time - and that we did. The moment I knew they were genius - the dancing crowd was at a lull and the DJ Crew knew exactly what to do. They put on "Hang on Sloopy", the crowd immediately picked back up for an endless night of dancing.
Dedicated? Yes. Fun? You betcha. These guys get 5 all around.
The DJ CREW deserves more than a 5! They said they would keep the guests dancing and they did! My husband and I did not have to worry about what event was coming up next; It was coordinated for us! They even helped us out with getting the jello shots from the kitchen when the hall wouldnt give them to my maid of honor! They were great and fun! Many thanks to The DJ CREW!
I really lucked out by finding this company. I couldn't have asked for anything better! John is a fantastic dj. He listened to all of my suggestions, and offered his own when mine were a bit off. (and by the way, he was spot on!) He was also very good about taking requests, and ignoring the really bad ones- lilke Highway to Hell that was suggested by a recently divorced friend. ;) Everyone, including my mother, complimented me on my choice. They all found him to be a good leader, and very interactive, without stealing the show. We were very pleased, and would readily recommend The DJ Crew to anyone.
Phil and Jake were great- professional and perfect with every detail and request. They got the party going and kept it going! John was patient getting my must-plays organized, considering I gave him the wrong song titles! They even found an amazing live version of our last dance song "If I should Fall Behind."
These guys are awesome, and extremely flexible! John is fantastic, and really knows how to treat his clients. They have a fantastic online system, so you can make sure you enter all of your important information (song ideas, how often to play certain types of music, etc.) so your DJ is prepared for your meeting the week of the wedding. My guests didn't stop dancing all night -- and the guys did a great job of running the show! Great pricing for what they offer. Definitely check them out.
I had the DJ's Kevin and Aaron and they were absolutely amazing. I thought that they did a wonderful job, they not only had all my guest up dancing and having a blast but they checked in with me all night to make sure everything was going according to the way I had always dreamed it would since I was a little girl. I would recommend these two men to anyone they did a fantastic job. So well in fact the wedding party in the hall joined to our had there guest coming over to dance. at the end of the night I just didn't want it to end.
The DJ Crew was awesome!! I was a little bit nervous leading up to the wedding because the DJs are somewhat hands-off (you basically fill out a questionnaire of the songs you would like to be played, and then your lead DJ calls you the week of the wedding to confirm). But, everything went off PERFECTLY at our reception. The DJ repeatedly checked in with my husband & I to see how our night was going, if we needed anything, etc. The song choices were spot-on too. There was actually a time early in the reception when the DJs started a song and guests left the dance floor, so they actually stopped the song and put something else on that guests came back out and danced for. My husband & I were extremely impressed - as were our guests who stayed and danced until after midnight.
The DJ crew have been my friends for several years. I knew they were great providers, but was blown away by the great job they did at my wedding reception. Not only were the constant professionals, but they also knew exactly what to do and when, and made the night an enjoyable and unforgettable time for not only my husband and I but also for all my family and guests.
I can't say enough great things about John and the DJ Crew!! Every time I talked to John on the phone, it was like I had known him for years, he just makes you that comfortable. At the wedding, I was feeling pretty ill and he was fantastic in handling me. He went WAY above and beyond the call of a DJ, including bringing me ginger ale when he saw my glass was empty.
They kept the party going by playing awesome music all night long! I would definitely recommend John and the rest of the DJ Crew to anyone who asked (or didn't ask).
I’m writing to let you know how unbelievably, completely, utterly, totally, 100% HAPPY we were with our experience with The DJ Crew!!. Kevin and Aaron worked our wedding on Saturday April 30th and words cannot even describe how great of a job they did!!!
I spoke with Kevin on the phone the Wednesday before our wedding for an hour and a half. He was so thorough, helpful and open with his opinions and ideas - he really set my mind at ease and gave me one less thing to worry about as far as the reception was concerned.
The day of the wedding, I knew we were in for one heck of a party the second we arrived at the reception site! They helped get things started with a crowd pleasing grand entrance and after dinner kept the dance floor packed ALL NIGHT!! By the end of the night, I had seriously lost count of the number of people who told me our DJ was AWESOME!!!! Our goal for our reception was not only to make it a night that WE would always remember, but also a night that our GUESTS would always remember and compare all other weddings to in the past and future. I know that Travis and I will never forget it, and judging from the comments of our friends, I’m pretty sure they won’t either. So....mission accomplished!
To illustrate, here are just a few of the comments from our friends on Facebook – these were things they either posted on my or Travis’s walls, posted on their own walls, or sent via private message:
- “Its going to be a tough wedding to top!” (said by friend who is getting married in September)
- “Hands down the best weekend of 2011 thus far!”
- “Ur wedding was the funnest I've been to yet. When u get a chance will you send me ur d.j.'s info?”
- “Angie told me that you had a really good DJ. Can you get me their info?”
- “Awesome wedding Travis and Somer! I had so much fun, thank you for letting me be a part of it”
- “The best party I’ve ever been to!”
So from the bottom of our hearts - thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Please make sure Kevin and Aaron know that we are so grateful to them for helping make our dream come true and that they did an excellent job! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone and everyone!!!
Travis and Somer Johnson :-)
We had Kevin and Aaron as our DJ's for our wedding, and they were absolutely awesome. Kevin was extremely thorough before the wedding and made it so much easier on us. They listened to our requests and truly made our reception the best it could be. All of our guests keep asking about our DJ and keep talking about how great they were. Kevin had the dance floor packed the entire night and almost all the guests were still there at the end of the night! I highly recommend this company and Kevin as the DJ.
The DJ Crew is a awesome company for wedding music or wedding reception. They made everyone want to get up and dance. They made the garter, flower toss and dollar dance very fun and interesting. People still talk about our wedding and one reason is because of The DJ Crew. I recommend them to everyone!
We have nothing but praises for John and Jeff of the DJ Crew! John was extremely thorough and easy to talk to! He was enthusiastic and helped pump up the parents and bridal party for our entrance into the reception! He even helped us orchestrate and pull off a prank on the father of the bride! Both DJs were great at working the crowd, made good music choices, and communicated well with us throughout the evening. They played everything we requested and even created the perfect ending for our reception! We would absolutely recommend the DJ Crew to all our family and friends... we really enjoyed working with them!
I could not of asked for a better company to work with!! They gave us great information and helped with all the details we didn't have done. The intros and music were topnotch! We got married new years eve and still have people complimenting how great Kevin and his partner were! Thanks again guys ur the best! We already have been recommending them to everyone we know!!!!
These guys were great! We couldn't have picked a better DJ for our wedding. I had many of our wedding guests comment on how awesome the DJ was. Overall I was very satisfied and would recommend them to anyone I talked to.
Great service! The DJ's were wonderful and people were dancing all night. They added so much to the "regular" wedding routines. Everyone commented on how good they were and how much fun the wedding was. These guys are great!!
Our experience with The DJ Crew was EPIC... guests are still talking about how fun and entertaining our wedding reception was! We highly recommend having DJ Crew for any event :) Our DJ John was completely professional and had everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor. Not only did they rock all the music we loved- they ran the show making our day even better! From the planning stages to the end results- DJ Crew paid attention to detail along the way make suggestions and planning a reception specific to our venue and tastes. It says a lot about a company when 3 of our engaged couples sent in date requests to The DJ Crew for their weddings next year!!
We were pretty disappointed with the DJ Crew, had heard great things about them but I guess it all depends on which DJs you get. We had Jeff and Tim J. We spoke to them the week of about what music we wanted played and one thing was requesting more Jack Johnson/Jason Mraz type during dinner, instead they chose to play slow music from the 80s/90s. The DJ changed the music halfway through when I asked but we noticed the music was bad so we would have enjoyed it if it was good. He also didn't play songs we had requested during the dancing, and we didn't request a lot so it shouldn't have been so hard. When I realized we were close to the end of the night and they still weren't playing songs we had requested I went up and asked him, played the first (Journey) with no question and everyone loved it. When I asked him to play Sweet Caroline (which is actually our song, which I had told him earlier in the week) he said they were planning to have 'Shout' as the last song. Um, what? Seems like a weird choice, and I told him to play Sweet Caroline instead. Everyone seemed to have the most fun dancing to the songs I had to insist on that night, wish they had played the other two songs we had requested!
The DJs were personable and did a good job making the change from the dinner to the dancing, but we paid them to play music at our wedding so they should have played what we asked for. The owner, John, does a great job explaining and selling the DJ Crew but he's not there for the wedding so it's all which DJs you end up with.
My husband and I loved our DJs. We got a good deal because we got married on a Friday, but their normal fee is very reasonable. They also have a strong referral program that will give you further discounts, if you use it. As far as their services go, I thought they were wonderful. They did everything I wanted and took care of tons of stuff I hadn't thought of. And they were extra-creative for me, too. I didn't have any good ideas for a song for the cake-cutting, but since my husband is Swedish, I thought they could just play a clip of the Swedish Chef from the Muppets, or something like that. So, they mixed a special song just for us using music and clips from the Swedish Chef. I thought that was great. And they were willing to play lots of Swedish music that we had burned onto a CD and brought with us. Somehow, they just worked it all into the mix and kept a great tempo to the evening. Kevin was the lead DJ, but he also had a second DJ there to assist. We were so satisfied with how Kevin guided the evening and he made sure that we were comfortable and calm at every point. That was worth quite a bit, itself. And all of our guests thought it was a really fun time! In the end, we were very happy to have chosen The DJ Crew.
John and his assistant for the evening Aron, were amazing! John was the only DJ we met with and we knew they were going to be great by our first impression. We talked a couple days beforehand and went over all the important songs and timing for everything. John also used his creativity to help us with our introduction and our awesome garter/bouquet toss, people keep talking about it! John really knew how to get the crowd going. The dance floor was never empty and everyone kept saying to us "your DJ's are awesome". I will continue to recommend the DJ Crew for years to come.
we had john and andrew as our two DJs and they had the party going all night!!! guests kept telling us how awesome they were and how much fun they were having dancing to all the songs! not only are these guys AMAZING DJs, but they will help you with other things you need too! they got me drinks, they made sure everything was coordinated with our other vendors, and they really just wanted to make sure our special day was as special as it could be! they were just completely awesome, and so great to have be there on our wedding day! highly recommended :)
Kevin from the DJ Crew, along with Aaron his assistant, were amazing!!!! They really took interest in what kind of "mood" we wanted to create for our reception. They played what we wanted them to play and didn't play what we didn't want played. They also really got the guests involved so that the dancefloor was packed during the entire reception. The DJ Crew was terrific to work with from the time we interviewed them to the day of our wedding!
The DJ Crew made my wedding reception go smoothly.. They asked us when we were ready for each event, gave us time if needed, and coordinated with the caterer and photographer to let them know what was coming up.. It made me able to relax and go with the flow because I knew they could handle everything.
Jeff and Jeff from the Dj Crew dj'd our ceremony and reception. They did a great job at the ceremony helping our coordinator Heidi and of course playing the music we wanted. At our reception, they kept people on the dancefloor all night with great music! Great Job! Highly recommended!
The DJ Crew was incrediable. They were very polite and professional, yet fun and energetic! They kept everything in order and made sure things happened on time. The music kept going all night and they even stayed later than planned!! They kept the dance floor full and everyone had a great time! Thanks DJ Crew!! We couldnt have asked for more!! Recommendation.... to everyone!!! for weddings or just parties! They are the best!!!
My daughter was married Saturday April 24,2010. Kevin was our DJ. I cannot express how impressed I was with his performance. We danced all night. All of our guests were saying how this was the best wedding and reception they had ever attended. I want to thank you such a wonderful evening. Heather and Ryan Bachus would also like to thank you for making their day so memorable. I will most definitely refer your services to others. Kevin made sure everyone was having a good time. He mixed the music up perfect. I know there was another gentleman helping him that night and I apologize for not knowing your name (my bad) but you were great. Thank You again, Rhonda Pascu Mother-of-the-Bride
They were great! They kept the guests dancing the whole night. They were so organized by contacting me before the wedding and finalizing the events of the wedding. Anything I asked for, they did without question. I loved them!
I have to say I was a bit disappointed... I actually acquired The DJ Crew because I was a part of the bridal party at a wedding that they DJ'd the year before. I was very excited at first because I thought, "Yes, I'm going to get what I want!!" They are very detail oriented with the "events" of the night. But I was very clear from the beginning that I wanted country music and no rap... when my guests requested country they were very disappointed to find out that they didn't have particular songs (alot of them!)... but plenty of rap-like music! All this after being told that they were sending this particular DJ because he was their "country" DJ. Other then that I would recommend them for your event... just make sure to clarify what you want and what you will not tolerate.
Wonderful, fun, & professional DJ service!!
I wanted a DJ that would "run the show" and that is exactly what our DJ did. My husband and I did not have to worry about a thing. It was wonderful.
Our DJs were Phil and Tyrone. They did a great job with all announcements and the Grand Entrance. The only reason I gave them a slightly lower score is due to the fact that I asked for rap/r&b/hip hop to be very limited and it was played INSTEAD of a song my husband requested (Tyrone forgot apparently). Additionally, two of the songs we asked for (out of maybe 5) were played before the bridal party ever got inside and another was started as everyone left the room for an outside fireworks show. A couple of guests commented about the DJs drinking some wine, but I didn't notice nor was I bothered either way simply because they weren't acting under the influence at all. We felt that their prices were a smidge high for what we got, but I can't hold them entirely accountable because our guests had such varied tastes that making everyone happy would have been impossible.
The DJ Crew is awesome! I am so happy that I had them for my wedding! They really REALLY "made" the whole evening.
They kept people of ALL ages on the dance floor for the entire night, which really came as a surprise to me, because I didn't really have a crowd that I thought was going to be really into dancing.
Frankly, I thought that people probably wouldn't actually stay for my whole reception, because many were from out of town and/or older and/or (so I thought) non-dancers, but people didn't want to leave, including my husband's 92 year old great grandmother (!!!). Also, keep in mind that the majority of the out-of-towners are from 9 hours away in East Tennessee, so I'm talking about a serious long drive.
Everyone had a great time, and people are still raving to me about how good the DJs were the day of the wedding, but what really impressed me was their very thorough work with my husband and I in the time before the wedding. They were always professional, listened carefully to our likes and dislikes and helped us plan an evening that really suited our sense of style. Plus, I felt a lot better going with them than with some other local companies, because 1. they actually put their DJs through a training program, and 2. you get 2 DJs so there's always someone "on the mic" so to speak even if one DJ is coordinating stuff with the caterer/photographer, or in the bathroom, or whatever.
So far I have been very pleased with my experience with my DJ. I went to a preview at another person's wedding and they did a great job. I personally do not like doing previews, it makes me very uncomfortable, but I think the DJ is really what created the good mood atmosphere at a wedding so it was my top priority. I had worked as a caterer before and I could always tell when the DJ sucked, and when they were a home run. Mine is going to be a home run, these guys are so on the ball.
We had a great experience with the DJ Crew. They were very professional and were careful play exactly what we wanted. They did a wonderful job keeping everyone on the dance floor as well. All our guests said they had a great time and that the music was great. I would recommend the DJ Crew to anyone I know getting married.
DJ Crew did a great job with our wedding and it was everything that we had asked and more. They got our guests excited and the dance floor was packed the entire night. John did a great job finding out what we wanted for pre-ceremony, ceremony, and reception. He was very organized and being the bride, I had no worries or concerns the day of with everything running smoothly. John made it a night to remember.
The DJ Crew did an amazing job at our wedding! They were prfessional and well prepared. The dace floor was packed until the last song of the night! Thank you DJ Crew for making our wedding such a special day!
used them for my sister's wedding, then used them for my wedding. Totally willing to listen and work with the bridal party and the other vendors without being intrusive. Friendly, energetic, fun, professional-highly recommended.
John and The DJ Crew were a fabulous pick for our wedding! From our first introduction at the 2007 bridal show, to our last dance, everything was perfect! The DJ Crew handled every meeting and situation with a sort of professionalism that is rare in this day and age..keeping in touch with us through the whole process, from questions in our contract, to our play (and do-not play) list, to handling special songs that I recorded for my husband, and some unruley reception guests. The customer service and character of The DJ Crew is in our opinions unmatched by any other company. No question about it, The DJ Crew is the BEST DJ service around!!!! Definately a class act!!
The DJ Crew did a great job with our wedding. They had people dancing all night. I would have liked a little more input on the timeline and flow of the evening, but they did a nice job improvising. The evening flew by!
John and Tyrone were amazing! Even with a tough crowd they kept our reception going all night!
From the first phone call to the last dance everything went perfect!!!! The Dj's were dressed very professional, had nice equipment and did everything to make sure it all went perfect. The listened to what I wanted played, and helped to set the exact atmosphere I was looking for. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. According to my husband I am "very hard to please", and I am extatic with the service I recieved. The Dj was the smoothest part of the wedding, which is exactly what every bride needs. They weren't pushy or rude most of the other companies I spoke with. You will not be disappointed with them!!
They really catered to our needs. They were great entertainment for everyone from adults to children.
The DJ Crew was absolutely the best! They were one of the best parts of our wedding and made us feel so special!
I've photographed 91 weddings, several of them have been with the DJ Crew. They've always been full of energy and have succeeded in getting the room on the dance floor. I'd recommend their services to any couple looking for an energetic and fun DJ!
NEW AGE FOTO and the Dj Crew have worked together on many weddings over the years and one thing you can always expect from them is a good time. They know how to read the dance floor and play the right combination of songs to keep it full.
One of the Best DJ's I work with. These guys are fun as all get out and know how to get a party started. I love working with them.
The DJ Crew is tops! They know the numbers for a great event!
Great DJ's + Great Music + Perfect Timing = The best reception party ever!

The DJ Crew is among, if not the best at what they do. They are capable, entertaining, read and control the mood of the evening with skill. They are true professionals that work with ALL the vendors needed to make a wedding a success.
These guys are great and we love working with them.

The DJ Crew provides service to all of Northeast Ohio using a two-DJ concept of a lead DJ
and an assistant DJ at every event, specializing in wedding receptions. Our clients not
only enjoy having their events coordinated and ran smoothly, but also appreciate an atmosphere and
dance floor that is tailored and constantly adapted to them and their guests.
Most brides and grooms wish they had one person to handle the bridal party entrance, toasts, cake cutting, dances, bouquet/garter, other special events, and bring a synergy between your caterer, photographer, videographer, music, and announcements.
But with The DJ Crew, you have two trained DJs watching over your reception.
We enjoy working with your other vendors. The goal is to give you more time to do what you want to do and this represents 1/3 of our training.
Whether you choose do all, a few, or create some of your own reception events, we are there to make sure they happen smoothly.
Think of your reception this way: It is the biggest party you are ever going to have thrown in your life, in your honor. The atmosphere, energy, and attitude should reflect what you two want and the experience you want your guests to have.
We do detailed and extensive prep work to make sure your entrance, dinner, dances, and general feel are about you, your family, and friends. We listen, give advice when asked, and help you put it all together.
Then on that day, it’s showtime. Your show, not ours.
Your events went smoothly. Atmosphere is incredible. Now the apex of your reception, your dance floor, can either dwindle to people leaving or can make a mark in your guests’ memories as being one of the most phenomenal parties they have ever been to.
We know that you are not going to have the same dance floor at the beginning of the night as you do at the end. That’s why we DJ moment-to-moment, constantly reading and adapting to your crowd. We train our DJs in not only music knowledge, but intelligent flow and transition.
Your reception is a unique blend of both your families and friends. Your music should match.
A: First, please contact us and verify that we are still available. We have the capacity to provide service for up to 7 events per day in 2009 and dates with up to 3 spots available have booked out in a day. Please DO NOT just send in your deposit in. Once you have confirmed we are still available, a $100 minimum deposit will secure service. We ask that you include both your and your fiancé’s last name, along with the date, in the memo portion of your check (or in the notes section if your deposit is made online).
Q: Why do we need 2 DJ’s at our reception?
A: When we say we take care of everything for you on your wedding day, we really mean it. A great example of this is the grand entrance (when you make your entrance at the beginning of your reception). While one DJ is lining up you and your bridal party in the lobby, reconfirming the pronunciation of names and making sure all are present and accounted for, the other DJ is preparing the music for the grand entrance, notifying the photographer you will be entering momentarily, notifying the hall the best man’s toast is right after the entrance so it can be poured, as well as getting all of your guests seated. A lot is happening in a short amount of time. Coordination between the two DJs is a necessity. For more see Why The Crew.
Q: How much are The DJ Crew services?
A: Pricing is based on when the event takes place (time of year/day of week), geographic location (if the event is within our normal area of coverage), and the type of event.
We do offer reduced rates for non-Saturday events as well as off-season dates.
Our base contracts are based on 5 hours of service for a wedding reception.
This is the recommended minimum number of hours.

Q: How early do you set up, and is that included in your playing time?
A: We usually arrive about an hour before our playing time. This allows us to coordinate and confirm events and times with the hall, photographer, etc. If necessary we will make arrangements to set up earlier if it conflicts with the arrival of your guests. Set up and break down time do not infringe on your contracted play time.
Q: What if you don’t have a song that we want?
A: This is one of the main reasons we discuss your event in advance. If we do not have a song in our current music catalog, we have multiple resources available to us to ensure we can acquire it. Brides and grooms sometimes wish to bring a few CDs for us to mix into flow of the evening, which is fine with us too. It’s your day!
Q: Can you provide ceremony music?
A: Yes. We approach ceremony music with the same detail and exactness we would your first dance.
Q: Are you insured?
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: We have been in business since 1998, incorporated in 2000.
Q: What is your normal length of playing time?
A: All of our packages are based on five hours of playing time.
Q: How loud do you play your music?
A: Background and dinner music are played just below talking level. We ensure this
by checking with the tables closest to the speakers. Event and dance music is played
just above talking level, so you can feel the beat on the dance floor, and still have
great conversation off the floor. We do a number of sound checks throughout the night.
Q: What kind of music do you play?
A: We go over music extensively prior to your event, finding out what types of music you
love, as well as your "must-play" and "do-not-play" lists. But it does not stop there. Our
teams are trained to observe, talk with, and adapt to you, your bridal party, and guests to
ensure a packed dance floor.
Q: What if we do not want certain songs played at our reception?
A: In the "crew pack" that all our brides receive, you can write down both specific song
requests as well as songs that you do not want played. When you speak with your lead DJ
the week prior to your wedding, he will confirm your selections. Once that is done,
the only people that can get a song played off that list is you or your new spouse.
Q: Can we extend the playing time?
A: Absolutely, you can decide to do this prior to your wedding or the night of.
Just let your DJs know that you want to have them stay longer. We will stay as late as
you want in ½ hour increments. Extended playing time is $50/half hour and is paid directly to the DJs.
Q: Should we include the DJs for dinner?
A: Including the DJs for dinner is a common courtesy, however not a necessity. We use this
time to get to know your guests and to go over the events with the other wedding professionals
Q: Do you have backup equipment?
A: Yes. All of our systems include back-up equipment built into the system. In the unlikely
event that we have a problem, we can make the nearly seamless switch to the back-up in seconds.
Q: What do you wear?
A: We dress professionally in tuxedos provided by American Commodore. We always keep up on the current styles, as our specific tuxedo style changes about every 18 months. If your event calls for dress other than tuxedos, we adapt and accommodate.
The main thing to look for in any wedding vendor is a comfortable working knowledge of what they do, how they do it, and how it can be adapted to your needs and wants.
WIth DJs, we feel that a skilled professional is personable and has a vested interest in how the night will feel to the client and their guests. If you find that in your potential vendor, then look for how they will manage the night for you, present to your crowd, and adapt musically. You are hiring someone to direct the entire night, and create what your guests are going to be watching and experiencing. They should be flexible and learn your crowd as the night goes on.
If there are multiple DJs in the company, see what kind of training they go through and what the owners expect of them.
If there is consistency in the company, then the assigned DJ(s) will know how to take care of a client, and have the skills to do so.
