Joel Nelson Productions
Awesome band! Not the usual cover band by any means, but if you like samba and a lot of high energy dancable music, book them! They are a great value and very impressive for guests. I was nervous about going with a non-cover band but I'm so glad we did! It really gave the wedding a special flavor and it was so much fun. The band are great people too!
We hired Joel Nelson for our ceremony and cocktail music, and they were extremely responsive and helpful in creating a perfect blend of music to reflect our style. We received several comments after the wedding about how amazing the music was, especially the ceremony music which blended our Jewish and Indian heritages. I would definitely recommend them to future brides.
The DJ that we worked with through Joel Nelson Productions was Rick McMahon. He was great. He was very flexible and easygoing, and very easy to talk to. He gave us lots of support during the event to keep things running smoothly. He coordinated announcements (such as the first dance, the father/daughter dance, etc) with the day-of planner, the videographer, the photographer and the wait staff. Also very importantly as the DJ, he kept the party exciting! He got people on to the dance floor and having fun. Thank you Rick and Joel Nelson Productions!
Rick from Joel Nelson productions was the DJ for my daughter's wedding in June and he did a fantastic job! Rick was there on time to set up and kept the dance floor hopping all night. Very classy--nothing cheesy about Rick. Many of our guests have commented that our DJ was the best they've seen anywhere. He did a great job sticking to our detailed timeline and added just the right direction to make the event flow flawlessly.
Overall we were happy with the service that Joel Nelson Productions provided. Rick was our DJ for the night and he did a good job of making sure that people were on the dance floor and that there were no awkward song changes that made people leave the dance floor. The SF Giants were also playing the Phillies to clinch the playoff spot and with the help of Rick, our guests were happy to hear him give updates on the game throughout the night so they could enjoy the night without needing to check their mobile devices. We would definitely recommend their services for anyone looking for a wedding DJ.
They did exactly what I asked. All the songs on my list were played, announcements and crowd motivation were great. The price was the lowest from what I saw. Would definitely use again.
Overall, ok. but a lot of things I asked that he didn't do or follow through with such as cutting off our first dance song halfway though and not playing all ten songs I pre-requested and gave him on a CD. Nice enough guy, but I don't think I'd ever use him again. Maybe, if I was extremely clear on what exactly I wanted, when and how... but I doubt it...
Rick is super high energy and very experienced. He did a terrific job of keeping the dance floor moving -- this was truly a feat, since my reception had 5 hours of dancing and a very mixed crowd -- and there were several times when I think EVERYONE was dancing. He did a couple of other things that I really appreciated: 1. He checked with my husband and I several times to get feedback and make sure we were happy, 2. He checked with me before playing song requests that were "odd" (instead of ignoring the request or playing something that would have turned heads). I would definitely request him again.
I love working with you guys!
