Marlin Disc Jockeys
PERFECT.. Dave had everyone up and Dancing from the moment the dancing started. He did a great job introducing everyone.. Even getting their names correct.. and there were some hard ones. He was very interacive. I had a lot of people ask me who he was, and telling me how great he was. Loved that he taught a line dance. and the enitre reception was out on the floor learing what to do. I would reccomend Dave and his team to anyone! He kept the flow going and a good mix of oldies and new hits. He totally played to the crowd!
Dave Kim with Marlin DJ was so easy to work with! He was very interactive with the guests and many guests had positive feedback. We had a list of requested music that he graciously played, including a song that was not in his portfolio. Overall, I would recommend Dave to everyone! I have been to about a dozen weddings over the past year and he is by far one of the most entertaining people out there!
Marlin DJs were great. They contact you early and give you plenty of time to think about what you want to hear on your special day. They give you suggestions when you are stuck. They will play whatever type of music you want. They are flexible and caring and they want to make your day the best that they can. We really enjoyed our music and would highly recommend them to anyone.
It has been almost two years since my wedding. My wedding was perfect with one exception... the DJ. He was horrible. I paid a premium for amateur work. He started the entrance late-- almost played the wrong song upon our entrance... did not even announce the best mans name... had a cheesey top 40 voice... It was so bad, that at one point I told him to stop talking and just play music. He barely even played my list AND did not play guests requests. I am sorry but he was an idiot. I look back upon that day and only feel regret for a poor choice of DJ. Save your money and time-- go somewhere else.
Getting ready for my wedding from another country was a difficult task which at first Marlin DJ was wonderful and understanding. I met with the owner at which time told me that he personally would not be working my wedding but assured me the highest professionalism of the DJ that would be there. Upon my arrival to the reception the DJ was completely confused and not taking direction from my sister who was in charge of coordinating our entrance to the reception. She by the way is a professional event planner and has had to work with multiple vendors at one time. Due to his lack of organization he ended up not getting us started on time but did not start the "party" until much later then what the agreement was. We ended up having less than an hour of dancing for our wedding! When calling the owner to discuss possible reimbursement after extending our party and paying extra for an additional hour (obviously not getting it), the owner would not budge. I would strongly advise looking for someone else to DJ your wedding!
**note there are great DJs out there for far less money and less headaches!
Vendor response to review
Thanks for the feedback but only half the picture was painted here. She neglected to mention that the rings were forgotten before the ceremony and coupled with the fact that they were brought to the reception on horseback carriage also put them 45 minutes late. When Joe the DJ wanted to get things rolling for dancing he was instructed by the bride and groom to wait till they finished greeting their tables which put their event even farther behind Joe the DJ had two people trying to tell him what to do (mother of the bride and the so-called event planner - Sister) which contradicted what Joe got from the bride and groom. (Old adage everyone wants to be a chief) Joe tried to accomadate all three but he has been doing it long enough to know what the Bride and Groom says goes.
My company Marlin Disc Jockeys did not charge them for traveling on this event (the event was 2+ hours away) and we went out of our way to make sure the Groom was hooked up to our system so he could sing his bride a song. Organization fault was not ours we know what to do at an event to keep things rolling but in this case there were individuals that obviously don't do weddings trying to call the shots. Joe the DJ has been with my company for 8 years and I have a stack of customer feedback and survey sheets that giving him exceptional praise of his energetic and enthusiastic performances at all types of events including weddings
We did not refund money because it was not our fault that the event lagged. If we would have been at fault i would have been more than happy to.
If they didn't like our services why did they even extend their event and hour? Joe said once the dancing got underway it was great.
I would be more than happy to discuss this furthur and they can contact me anytime at my office line (215) 855-7688.
We have had many wedding's in our family and our wedding still holds the record for most fun! People still talk about our wedding almost 2 years later. Dave Kim does an amazing job, keeping the music going, the props never end and everyone has a blast! On our wedding video, there is a clip where we can't even see the dance floor, it's covered with all of our family and friends dancing and no one is sitting down!!! How often does that happen at a wedding? I am sure only with Dave does that happen!!!
Thank you to whole gang at Marlin Dj's. They always do a great job when they are here (which is often) The attention to detail to the event is amazing. We really enjoy having you here.
