Hawaii DJ Professor Bob, Da Spin Doctor
We wanted something different for our reception but didn't know what or how to start. Bob answered his phone himself...no "please leave a message" phone tag delays. We took Bob's advice and met with him in person. He asked lots of questions which made us feel that he was interested in US and what we wanted. After FREE consultation with Prof. Bob when he came up with dozens of creative suggestions, we decided to have a TV game show reception theme. It was so much fun! Our whole family loves Jepoardy so Bob created questions about us, how we met, stuff from little kid time. He had a large TV screen just like the real show game board so everyone could see and play. IT WAS JUST LIKE A REAL TV SHOW! Everyone was jazzed and then while the energy was high, we went into dancing which lasted all night long. I think he had every song everyone requested but ran out of time to play them all. The hi tech sound and the lights were like a concert or a SHOW, not anything like what we have seen or heard at other weddings. If you want a real PRO entertainer and not a wedding like just like everyone else's, and not just someone to play music, don't miss out. He has many repeat customers and is sometimes playing in Las Vegas, so call well in advance if you want Bob specifically. It was the best most fun reception we have ever been to ever AND IT WAS OURS! - not just a reception but a major PARTY!
I am an American professional DJ working in England, where the art of the DJ is held in highest esteem and the numerous club and mobile DJs are highly competitive. My wife, who is a dancer from Hawaii, and I wanted to get married in Waikiki, so we wanted to hire a Hawaii DJ. Needless to say, our standards and expectations were the very highest for my own wedding and reception.
We knew we had but one chance to get this right, so a year in advance we conducted venue inspections and interviewed seven DJs in Hawaii over four days while visiting family and friends. Knowing what experienced pro DJs charge, we budgeted $800 to $1600 for MC, lights, sound system, and musical entertainment.
Bob stood out right from first contact. His web site is a virtual encyclopedia of useful information. We felt at ease with his personality at the first meeting, and booked him a year in advance. His inventory of equipment for both lighting and sound was state of the art and more up to date than my own. Working within our budget, he supplied us with far more we were expecting to receive.
The wedding and reception could not have been better, despite our highest standards and demands. Our guests are still chattering about it. He created a custom playlist based on our broad, eclectic music specifications. He arrived two hours ahead of schedule. His setup and backup systems were clean, unobtrusive, and professional, using the latest editions of pro DJ hardware and software.
But, most impressive was that Bob knew how to entertain - when to talk and when to shut up, keeping our guests (mostly musicians and entertainers) thoroughly entertained while keeping the focus on the Bride and Groom.
If you demand the best and want an experienced pro entertainer, hire Bob, "the DJ’s DJ." We are happy we did. Nothing more needs to be said.
I want to share our experience with Professor Bob. He is also a trained musician and he was a real radio DJ for Dick Clark, so he KNOWS music and how to entertain! But, all DJs play the same tunes. So here is why we are happy we hired him.
Our MC (a family member) got sick (too much beer) and freaked out with stage fright so Bob stepped in at the last second and announced the whole reception. Bob was already in a tux, so almost everyone except the wedding party thought we had planned it that way. WOW! He has a great clear pro voice but it sounded totally natural and friendly.
Bob has an unbelievable menu of modern lighting. We used his up lights, lasers, and dance floor lighting and that totally changed the whole mood and look of our reception from an ordinary bare ballroom to a HOT club-like environment, like on his video. We also wanted a monogram light so he sent us over a 100 designs to pick from. I think the killer lighting helped get everyone dancing and our dance floor was full almost the whole time. The sound system he used sounded just like a live concert, not just some crappy loud speakers. Some of our guests commented on the great sound. Just right on the volume and he continuously adjusted it all night.
Professor Bob is not the cheapest DJ around. But we saw a cheaper DJ at another party and didn’t want crappy sound and somebody obnoxious. The DJ kid we saw had an inflated ego and wanted all the attention and dressed like a bum in a tee shirt and shorts. Bad jokes, bad sound, a big banner advertising himself, two cheap lights, and other cheezy crap. We knew we only had one chance to get our wedding right. We felt we got double or triple more than our moneys worth from Bob and we have already booked him for our first anniversary.
One bad thing…book him early because he was booked months in advance. We just got lucky.
DON'T MISS OUT!
We intend to get married once, so I can't compare Professor Bob to other wedding DJs. All I can say is he did one hell of a job for us! The right music just at the right moment, fantastic lights, and the best sound I have ever heard. He used to be on TV, so he knew how to entertain all our guests without hogging all the attention away from us. I would hire him again without hesitation.
But don't miss out! Asking around before our wedding, we found out that he is very popular for weddings and private parties, and he only does one show per day. Book him early or he might not be available.
Perhaps you noticed that we don't insult your intellegence by publishing reviews. Almost all reviews are five stars, so how does that help you make a decision? As said in the movie, "When everyone is super, then no one is."
If reviews are anonymous, they have no credibility because you can't confirm who wrote them or if they are legitimate. If they have contact info, that exposes our clients to all kinds of phone harassment, sales calls, or Internet phishing schemes. We respect our client's privacy, so we don't exploit them for our advertising by pestering or paying them for reviews.
We don't sell our client list or email list. If you want your wedding plans to remain private and unique, then give us a call and meet us in person, which is the BEST way to evaluate a DJ. At our meeting, we can show you lots of emailed reviews and fan letters. When you do schedule a meeting, you will receive a 20% immediate discount - Click on "Deals" above.
Fortunately, most of our new clients are "word-of-mouth" from folks have seen us perform or have heard about us.
