Station Identification Entertainment
Robert and his team were fantastic!! They have a system that really allows the couple to customize your own wedding. They also act the the coordinator during the reception which saved us a ton too! The Newlywed Game was fun as was the centerpiece giveaway! We did pay a bit more for them, as opposed to some other DJs were spoke with, but I believe the added value was well worth the price!! I highly recommend them for ANY event!
Excellent! Wonderful to work with! Went above and beyond!
Station Identification is very expensive but after meeting with Robert we decided to go with them. Their fun games and ideas really caught our attention and we felt our guests would have a great time at the reception.
Unfortunately things did not go as well as we had hoped...As my daughter walked down the isle to a song that she had very carefully chosen the song ended half way down...she was left to walk the other half in silence. A little embarrassing.
Then immediately after the ceremony Robert's assistant Ryan followed the photographers around tapping his foot and telling them that we were out of time and needed to get to the grand entrances.
The games were fun and our guests did have fun but unfortunately my daughter did not get some of the pictures that she wanted from her special day.
When I spoke with Robert after we got the pictures back he was rude and tried to pass the blame to everyone else from the day never taking any responsibility for his actions.
There are other entertainment DJ's that do the same games that Station Identification does. I would recommend finding them and using them. I would not recommend Robert.
My husband and I knew Robert because he did two of our family wedding and he delivered each time. Although I believe he and I utilized Robert with most everything that he had to offer so I believe was even more awesome for our wedding.
Robert is such a fantastic emcee and DJ, along with his assistant Ryan. Ryan too, was wonderful to have on board. Robert carries great charisma, interacts with the crowd very well, and he and his crew do certain things that are unique that definitely set him apart from the other DJs I've seen at other weddings. He does these ice breakers that are unique to his weddings and they're a crowd pleaser. The guests at mine and my husband's wedding were very big fans of the centerpiece give-away game and game show musical chairs game. But as a fair warning, if you decide to use the musical chair game, people get pretty competitive. But most importantly, the guests still talk about how he is one of the best DJs they've seen at a wedding.
What made things even more awesome than he already was, since he previously did two family member weddings, was that we utilized his photo booth and party props package. The photo booth was such a big hit at the wedding and the props that he provided, and they really do make for some memorable photos. AND for those that took pictures, people signed greetings next to their picture strip and Robert and his wife Stephanie then complied in into a scrapbook! And lastly with the party props, that happens during the open dancing portion where they go around and hand these things while people are on the dance floor. Its just something about Hawaiian hats, and maracas, and tambourines that people to go nuts for.
There are certain things that people who are planning a big wedding just should not skimp out on, and the DJ and entertainment is definitely one of them. Guaranteed, you will not be disappointed!
Vendor response to review
Aw shucks Christine! We are so very happy that you all had a blast. Your glowing review is music to our ears. Thanks for allowing us to be part of your big day. You have a great family and we are so happy for you guys. Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
Robert at Station Identification was amazing! As a DJ he was great, but what really makes him and the company stand out it their team the day of the wedding and making sure the groom and bride are having a great time and everything is organized and taken care of (without you having to worry about it!).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and worth every penny!
Station Identification was one of my favorite wedding vendors to work with. They really are concerned about making your special day run smoothly. They are in contact months before to make sure the timeline is perfect. Robert and Stephanie are the nicest people and they respond to your calls or emails right away!!! Most other vendors I've noticed take your deposit and you don't hear much from them. Station Id are great at entertaining your guests with games and guests never get bored. They are not cheesy like other dj/mcee companies. They were a great investment and they took a lot of stress off me and my fiance at the time. They also have photobooth packages. We went with them also because they had a really big booth and tons of props. They also have really high quality equiptment and are extremely professional.
Thank you again for making our day run so smoothly!!!

Wedding September 23, 2012 Diamond...
We just got married 5 days ago and ever since we have been getting so many compliments on how fun and entertaining our wedding was. It was all due to Station Identification. We had our first meeting with Stephanie and she was so helpful and informative. We then used all their online planning tools to customize our music selections, which was great, because we were able to give it our personal touch. We then met with Robert and he went over everything including each event in our timeline. This eased my mind know how things will go in order.
On the day of our wedding, I arrived at the venue and SI was all set up and ready to go. Robert and Ryan made everything so easy. We didn't have to worry about a thing. They told us where we needed to be and if we needed to speed things up a bit. Robert did a great job entertaining the guests with the ice breakers. Ryan was so helpful in making sure we were on track and that we knew what was going on, so we were never confused about what the next event would be. The music was great and they kept a crowd on the dance floor all night!
I highly recommend that you choose SI for you wedding or next event!!!
Thank so much to Stephanie, Robert, and Ryan for making our wedding unforgettable!!!

Robert, Stephanie, and their staff are rock stars. After a few months of searching for a DJ, we’re more than glad to have hired them.
From the get-go, my husband and I were impressed with the amount of preparation and detail Robert had put into our consultation meeting—and that was before we hired them! So immediately we knew we’d be in great hands.
During our reception, we were able to relax and not feel as if we were running around crazy like chickens without heads trying to get things done ourselves. When Robert assured us that part what they do is to “put out fires,” we didn’t think we’d have “fires,” but if there were any—thank goodness SIE did their job because for us, it was all smooth sailing.
We still get praises from guests about how smooth and well-organized our reception was. We have relatives telling us about how when they got home, they stayed up all night and into the morning talking about how much fun they had that evening.
We appreciated not only SIE’s perfectionism, but also how accommodating they were. My husband and I accidentally dropped off the DVDs for our photo montage into the wrong house’s mailbox, but Stephanie was so helpful, she was able to retrieve them without a problem.
We’re so happy with our decision to hire SIE. Definitely check out their...
A bit on the quirky side, but VERY detail-oriented. A couple of my friends have already booked them for their weddings next summer!
Wonderful DJ services! We had Blake and he was GREAT. They had great games and really kept the guests active and having fun throughout the ENTIRE wedding. The photo booth attendant was so friendly and so funny. Station Identification has already done FOUR (including our own) of our family's weddings and they never disappoint.
I can't even begin to express how perfect Station Identification made my wedding day. From day 1, they provided me with all the online tools I needed to pick the songs I wanted played as well as upload any wedding party bios and other information they needed. They were quick to respond to emails and phone calls and were very involved with every detail. They also provided me with a timeline from the ceremony through the reception, (minute by minute!) with what was happening, who was involved, and what song was being played. THEN, they had me review and approve the schedule, then they sent this to all my other vendors (photographer, wedding coordinator, etc.) that way everyone was on the same page. I truly believe this is singlehandedly the reason why not a SINGLE thing went wrong on my wedding day. Also, they provided ice breakers during the cocktail hour and reception that got the entire crowd involved and people loved it! They were coming up to me saying how this was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, and I know it was all because of the DJ and MC! The assistant kept my husband and I informed of what event was coming up next and totally kept us worry free! We did not think about a THING and just enjoyed and soaked up every single moment of that day. They stayed completely on schedule and were truly the life of the party. I would highly HIGHLY recommend Station Identification for any couple. They are SO organized, SO nice, and SOO fun!.
Was late to first meeting and was sick for the second meeting.
Good deal on the photo booth.
Overall, did a good job
Stress free...just enjoy your wedding, they will take care of the entertaiment. Your guesses will enjoy every moment while they are there.
BEST DJ EVER!!!! I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a great DJ at your wedding. Please check out Robert from Station Identification for your wedding DJ if you want to have the most incredible time at your wedding. He made my wedding so fun and the guests keep raving about him and his games! He truly made my wedding day. Without him, your wedding may be very dull and forgetable. Good thing mine won't be!
Hiring a DJ was not something we put on high priority because of our budget, but we're so glad that we chose Station Identification for our wedding!
From the beginning, Robert was very careful in the entire planning and preparation process. I met with him for hours each time because he made sure that we had gone through everything for our wedding. He was always pleasant and willing to have a laugh, which shows that he really enjoys helping people celebrate special days. Up until the few days before our wedding, Robert and Stephanie were quick in responses and beyond flexible to meet our ever changing requests and needs. They also had no problem in getting the songs that we requested which weren't very popular.
Because of his meticulous planning, Robert really helped to save the day on our wedding day. We had over 400 guests and a LOT to do on the day of, so people were running everywhere trying to get things done. I had failed to communicate the entire schedule due to a very busy week, and we were running very behind on schedule. However, Robert and his assistant maintained their professional and pleasant manner throughout the night of confusion and did their best to entertain our guests. They kept the night flowing, always letting us know in good time what was supposed to happen next. Although it was hard for my husband and me to pay attention to a lot that was happening, we keep hearing from our guests how much fun they had and how smoothly everything went.
Thanks, Station Identification, for making our reception so great!
I had my wedding 6/18/11 at the grand with Robert as our DJ. Choosing Station Idetification was THE BEST decision I could have made for my wedding. But let me start from the beginning...
I am pretty price sensitive and i thought (and thought wrong) that the cost of this dj was a little on the high end, and even after we decided to book them, I was wondering if I was going to regret spending the money i did on them by choosing them for my wedding because of the other things I had to forgo because of it.
BUT... after all was said and done, I realize now that what I paid for was not just WORTH it.. i think that for the job they did, and for the value of their services, dollar for dollar it was ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VALUE out of EVERYTHING that i paid for at my wedding hands down.
They were polished professionals, on point, and kept everything on schedule. They even provided us with a minute by minute schedule that they made sure went off smoothly and seamlessly - which it did...
they also had these ice breakers and games to keep our guests entertained, and they had the dance floor packed all night!! our reception started at 7:30 p.m. and from past weddings i had seen, people would start looking for ways to slip out and leave the wedding as soon as polite to do so -- but not ours! Our wedding was packed until closing (which was midnight)!
i could not be more happy with these guys... i had SO MANY people tell me that my wedding was the best and most fun wedding they have ever been to and that right there is priceless.
you will not go wrong with Station Identification -- highly recommended!
My husband and I got married in June. We had DJ Blake at our wedding along with a photo booth. We were extremely impressed with Station Identification from the beginning. They have a very thorough system for preparing for a wedding. I keep hearing from all of our guests how much fun our wedding was. Many people said that it felt like a party at the reception. The ice breakers and newlywed game was a huge hit as well! The guests had a lot of fun watching us answer questions and we had fun sitting back (one of the few chances we had to relax) and watching our guests play musical chairs. Also, we LOVED looking through the photo album that they made for us of our guests photo booth photos. We would highly recommend Station identification! You will not regret it.
They really made our wedding!!!
Station Identification MORE than exceeded our expectations for our wedding. Robert and his wife Stephanie were super helpful during the planning stages and were incredibly thorough and detailed. They made sure they knew exactly what we wanted and went above and beyond to make sure that they provided that service! The music was fantastic, they kept the dance floor packed the whole night. We also had a photobooth through Station Identification and it was AWESOME! Our guests loved it. We were able to customize the look of the printed picture to match our wedding suite. Overall we were thrilled with their professionalism and quality and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a phenomenal DJ! :)
SI did a great job. They are very attentive and professional. I recommend reviewing the music playlist and introductions (thoroughly) with the DJ before the event as our DJ barely stuck to the list (we took hours preparing) and stammered during the introductions.
Otherwise they are efficient and did their job well.
The owner and his wife are professional, detailed, and organized. They have an excellent online system where your music selections get uploaded into a timeline/itinerary.
The only bump in the road I experienced was that they would not release me from my photo booth reservation. They did not have everything I wanted because I had a different vendor that already had all of my requirements. In the end, I had to spend extra time doing things myself like picking graphics (they didn’t send recommendations), buying the album, paper, and stickers. The end product was beautiful, but it took awhile to get to that point.
The ceremony and reception went well, except that later in the night we heard some music selections that we didn’t like. However, the games were fantastic and overall I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Great DJ, but be careful about booking the photo booth.
All I can say is wow when it comes to Station Identification!! From start to finish they were by far the best choice we could have ever made for a dj. From the 1st meeting we had I couldn't believe all the good reviews that were written about them. One after the other stating it was the best dj they have ever experienced. Very professional and polished. At the reception everything flowed perfectly. They had everything mapped out on the timetable and there wasn't one mistake,problem,or hiccup. They made us feel very relaxed the entire night. They even made us sit down to eat our food when we wanted to talk to all the tables. It worked out though because we still had plenty of time to thank each table and guest. The music selection was perfect and the games the games the games were the biggest hit. All of our guests told us what a fun dj and it was by far the best experience they have ever had at a wedding reception. It was overwhelming the response. We loved it, our guests loved it. The icebreakers were awesome and people are still talking about the newlywed game. They knew how to keep the dancing going and didnt play any lame songs. They were very classly and I knew that they had things under control the entire night. This dj is worth every penny! I have been to too many receptions with horrible dj's that are cheesy and play bad music that clears out the dancefloor. Not to mention no other dj has icebreakers or games to keep your guests entertained. I feel I should be a spokesperson for this company.haha. If I find anyone that was disappointed in them that would be the shock of the century. Safe bet for your wedding ;)
I can't say enough good things about Robert, Stephanie, and his staff! We had them at our 12-3-10 wedding & they went above and beyond like I knew they would. This was the one vendor I wasn't worried about, as soon as we meg Robert we knew he had to be the dj. He's not just a great dj but a great guy! Genuinely nice and so helpful. He acted basically as a backup wedding planner which came in handy! My husband actually wants to throw another party just to hire him again! Him and his team are so professional and awesome. We had a small wedding but with the fun games Robert played everyone had so much fun even if they weren't dancing. It's really fun for all the guests no matter their age, personality, or likes. Everyone told me how much fun it was and that it was the best and most fun wedding ever! Robert was so attentive and thorough, yet so fun and easy going. A million stars to Robert and his team!!
Amazing and incredible service. From the planning stages til the big day. We had fun, and so did our guests. It's nice to see everyone on the dancefloor from age 2 to 70. Thank you guys, your service is truly exceptional.
This DJ is awesome! I loved that before the wedding, he had a complete itinerary typed up for us to look at and see what time everything was going to take place during the ceremony and reception. He also provided a photo booth for us which was great because there was someone there at all times to help with it and help my guests put their pictures into a scrapbook and sign it. The assistant he had with him was great in telling us when we should get up and greet our guests, let us know when our dinner was served so we could sit down for a bit and eat, and then reapproached us to get back up and greet some more. The icebreakers were so great and our bridal party had a great time playing musical chairs. All my guests said they had such a great time and never felt like there was down time during the reception. I loved that I got to choose the music I wanted played and the music I would rather not hear. If you want a personalized experience with a DJ I highly suggest hiring Robert and his crew. He will make your day so special and stress free.
We could not be happier about the service that we received from Station Identification. From the first call to set up a consultation to the last song played at our wedding was exactly what we wanted. They pay attention to every little detail and really get to know the couple well, after that they incorporate fun mixers to get the guests going and there is never a dull moment! Our favorite memory from our wedding has everything to do with Robert and his crew. They really captured the real "us" and it was worth every penny spent!
I have been meaning to review Robert and Stephanie for literally a year now, and having just seen their work again this past month at another wedding, I decided that it's about time I give them the credit that's due. I just celebrated my one year anniversary this month and guests are STILL talking about how our wedding was the best wedding they've ever been to. I know I owe 99% of that to Robert's expertise. He was the perfect DJ and coordinator. Everyone loved the games he planned for us and people danced ALL NIGHT, including the relatives I would have never expected to dance. He was professional, fun, and great for the wide range of ages and personalities at my wedding.
I met with a lot of horribly corny DJ's before I met Robert and thought I was doomed. I got so lucky with a last shot in the dark that led me to Station Identification. Robert and Stephanie were on top of everything. They not only provided the entertainment, they had an online system to choose my music and organized my whole day for me so I could have fun without the stress of directing and entertaining my guests every step of the way. Robert and his assistant took care of everything and even came over to free me up from talking to friends so that I had time to eat and made sure things ran like clockwork. I can't imagine how my wedding would have gone without them.
Station Identification was worth every penny. You won't be sorry if you go with these guys.
Robert and the team gave us space to enjoy our wedding and to focus on our family and friends. Our guests continue to rave about their time with us.
The reception happened around us, involving everybody in a great experience. People of all ages and from many diffent cultures and background ds had a wow of a time. SI ensured that the focus was on the bride and groom and the guests and not on their program. Great planning, wonderful facilitation, and smooth execution. Many, many thanks to SI.
Robert did a great job as our DJ for our wedding. He had so many fun ideas that helped to get our guests involved during the wedding. All of our guests raved about the newly wed game Robert had us play. Robert played the right music at the right time. He was able to get everyone up to the dance floor. I loved how organized Robert was. He was not only our DJ but he helped to coordinate the flow of the entire wedding so we had nothing to worry about on our actual wedding day. I highly recommend hiring Station Identification Entertainment for your wedding or special event.
Our wedding by almost all guests opinion's, was the best wedding they had ever
been to, and a few of our guests had been to some very upscale weddings. The
night was flawless, which I understand is a rare occurance.
Much of our success was first due to the most beautiful bride any of them had
ever seen, but Robert at Stations Identification made each transition during the
wedding effortless and such a pleasant experience for all of our guests. He
controlled the evening and kept the excitement in the room, such that there were
no holes that the guests could wonder what went wrong or what are we supposed to
Robert suggested a few games that were fun and entertaining for not only the
guests but myself and my, as previously described, beautiful bride. Although
being the center of a few of the games and greeting guests and doing what the
wedding party must do during the wedding I did not get to participate in all the
activities but I could tell by the volume of laughs and all round enjoyment of
the room that it was clear, even before the reviews started coming in a few
weeks later, that all of the guests had almost as great a time as this first
I cannot thank Robert and the staff at Station Identification enough for all
their help and support for giving me such a great experience. I highly
reccomend Robert and the entire Stations Identification crew to anyone planning
their wedding or any occasion as I understand. They are all amazing!
Robert is an awesome DJ! He helped us plan out all the details of our wedding (music selection, order of events, etc). He's easygoing, flexible, and very experienced. He kept the party going and transitioned smoothly between activities. All the guests loved him. Thanks for making our wedding so much fun!
They made my wedding day perfect. I had no idea what I was doing or what I was supposed to do (I have never been married before, and I've only been to one wedding) but Station Identification was there for me every minute of the entire day instructing me, helping me, and giving me suggestions to make the day run perfectly smooth. They are extremely talented entertainers and I am still getting compliments from guests on how well everything went and how fun and exciting the whole event was. As promised by Stations Identification, every guest agreed it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I could not have asked for anything to go better than it did.
Our DJ, Blake, was awesome. Our guests all commented on how great he was at adapting to the crowd and most importantly, he kept the majority of our guests on the dance floor.
The company structure, however, bothers us a bit. We did not like the fact that everything had to go through the owner, Robert. Robert was very meticulous and we really appreciated the details. But that being said, when you have to go through several people in trying to convey a single request, somehow that message gets lost or mis-interpreted. On several occassions, we had to needlessly clarify to Robert of our requests, and even so, not everything was accounted for.
We had spent two nights prior, finalizing our song selections for the ceremony and on the day of our wedding, Blake told us that he never got the final change. Fortunately, this mistake worked out for the better. However, when my groomsman spoke to Robert the day of the wedding, he immediately shifted the blame onto the groom. FYI, the groomsman was there when the groom informed Robert of these changes. This was rather unprofessional. The correct business motto is, "The client is always right."
The most troublesome aspect of dealing with Station Identification is that we never really got a chance to get to know our DJ more. When asked if we could contact our DJ directly so we can make sure he knows exactly what's going on instead of relying on someone else telling him what we wanted, Robert simply told us, "No we don't do that....no other DJ businesses do this." Honestly, had we been given Blake's contact info directly, we wouldn't have had this "fortunate" mix-up during our ceremony.
Station Identification has many different services to offer, and certainly do deliver on their promises. But that came at somewhat of a price as well. Robert is rather inflexible as to specific changes to their reception games and was occassionally offended when we made some suggestions. All weddings have themes, we found it rather irritating that we couldn't tailor some of the games to our wedding theme. However, in the end, the games were very professionally moderated. Thanks again to Blake.
Finally, we were happy with the price for commissioning Station Identification. They were very quick to reply to us with a quote and our first introductory meeting was certainly a memorable one.
I would like to take this time to clarify that we (Robert and I) had been on the phone two nights prior finalizing. Using the lack of email is only an excuse to be honest. We both know that we had communication problems with email especially since our email address had been overlooked by yourself quite a few times, requiring me to call in many times to follow up. I would expect a bit more professionalism from your end instead of shifting the blame onto us for not sending you another email TWO DAYS prior to our wedding. Whether or not the song turned out to be perfect is besides the point. We would have been happy with our changes either way.
As to the ice breakers, it really doesn't matter what YOUR opinions are. In the end, I strongly believe it is your job to ensure that the needs/requests of the bride and groom are met and to perform to the best of your ability. Even if doesn't end up well, at least this was a personal request of the bride and groom and would, by all means, be unreasonable to place the blame on Station Identification. In all honesty, how do you know our guests would or would not have appreciated the modifications to the ice breakers with anime/superhero/etc songs? That is your opinion, one which I respected, but am pointing out here that this was a point of inflexibility on your part. You yourself stated that the wedding is about the bride and groom, so wouldn't it make sense to tailor to the needs of your clients? It is not like the requests we made were unreasonably outrageous.
We thank you for your services and certainly rated you according to our experiences. We were merely making some suggestions that would have made our experiences with Station Identification much more memorable.
I find it funny that throughout all of your responses, you have continued to shift the blame back onto your clients. You say, you felt "playing 20 Anime cartoon themes would not appeal to many of their guests." I ask you this, "Who are you to make this call?" Never once did you inquire about the make up of our guests. It could've all been friends our age with the exception of our parents. The fact of the matter is, this is your opinion, which you lent no flexibility nor room for discussion. You simply overruled us. Did Blake ever mention Station Identification during our wedding? No, in fact, none of our guests knew who our DJ was even by the end of the wedding. You were even proud at the fact that you were one of the few DJ companies out there that do not advertise your own company during the wedding reception. And yet, everything you've written so far is about yourself. So how can our guests possibly blame our DJ? And the most ridiculous part of your argument is that you think our guests would even fault the DJ for something THIS SPECIFIC as playing anime songs. Last time I checked, no other DJ business would even entertain such genre, let alone Station Identification. Any rational human being would know this was the idea of the bride and groom. AND our theme was anime/cartoon/superheroes for crying out loud.
Bottom line is, you are too over-protective of your business and hence you are rather inflexible to new ideas. On top of that, as I have mentioned before, you often took our "reasonable" suggestions as threatening.
The irony of all this is, the more you respond with your current point of view, the worse of a name you are making for Station Identification. Everyone can clearly see that you have no respect for the opinions or suggestions of your clients, before AND after the wedding. I really don't know how you expect any of us to continue recommending you.
You're right, you can ask everyone else to read other opinions, but my experience is, people will always take the most critical reviews most seriously when considering vendors. And you certainly helped me confirm everything I've mentioned with your replies.
FYI, thank you for that ridiculous statement "we wouldn't allow his reception to fail by honoring a wacky request." I felt that I needed to highlight this for everyone to see how much respect you have for your clients and the degree of your maturity as a business owner.
Vendor response to review
We are certainly glad our clients had a great time on their wedding day. Our motto is to promise less and deliver more as well as to provide a "Fun, Unique and Memorable experience.. "Without the Cheese!". As to the communications we always ask our clients to email or call us directly with any updates and changes. Our client tried to make a change to their Wedding Ceremony Music 2 days before their wedding day, which would have been absolutely fine however we never received any email regarding the change. I researched the email that he was in reference to and confirmed that the requested song change was not included in the email. With the request being made so close to the wedding day it would have been a good idea to call inthe request. They never followed up to make sure we received the song change and because we never received the email the song change was never made. I was told that the original song was perfect anyway and it actually worked out well for their ceremony. As for the request to make changes to their chosen Ice Breaker: Our very popular TV Theme Song Trivia has been a success for many years. We've honored many requests over the years to personalize the Ice Breaker by switching out some of the TV Theme Songs for client reqeuested TV Theme Songs. It is very easy and nice way to personalize one of our Dinner Ice Breakers. What they originally requested was to have all of the TV Theme Songs represent Anime (Japanese Animation) and secondly to be displayed on their video screen (The screen wasn't ours). I suggested to them that many if not most of their guests wouldn't not be familiar with the Anime Theme Songs and in addition we were not sure how we would be able to manage the songs via their projection and screen since it was not our equipement. We were more than happy to personalize our other Ice Breakers and I made a point to let them know that it would have a positive impact on their wedding day. Bottom line is we aim to please and our record speaks for itself. Although we have many reviews here on Weddding Wire we have hundreds more on our website that you can review. In closing your Wedding should be all about the Bride and Groom and their guests. We constantly remind ourselves this is the only weddding they will have and it is a Once In A Lifetime experience for them. I however am not sure I subscribe to the motto "The client is always right". I believe as a Wedding DJ, Host Entertainer and with our 25 years of experience we must sometimes make sure the client has ALL the information so they can make a more informed decision. It was because we informed our client some things they may not have considered that they changed their minds and agreed with our suggestion that playing all Anime Theme Songs probably wouldn't go over very well. We are grateful for their business and appreciate their feedback and wish them a lifetime of marital happiness.
2nd response: Our "opinions" [see the confusion explination below] DO matter and we take into consideration both what our Bride and Grooms ask for but what is best for the greater entertainment experience of the the event and the guests. We simply felt that playing 20 Anime cartoon themes would not appeal to many of their guests. Simply put if an Ice Breaker flops it will ONLY be the Bride and Groom who know it was actually their doing. All of the guests in attendance will blame the Entertainment. We are a 100% referral business and we strive for the guests at our events to be blown away by our services and the experience. Bottom line is that this particular client simply second guessed many things including our Ice Breakers and instead of slightly personalizing our Dinner Ice Breakers they wanted to completely change it. I being the only Wedding Enterainment Expert needed to make the decision to not completely alter one of our time tested Ice Breakers into something that would not have succeded and the disastorous results would have been attached to our company and not simply just to their event. We were very open to slight personalizations but not complete overhauls which is what they requested. Ninety nine times out of 100 we are able to honor requests like this. Bottom line is that they took our advice, suggestions, expertise, knowledge and experience and confused that as being our "opinion". In reality they did not trust us and second guessed most of what we do. What do you think they would have posted had we honored all of their requests and the Reception turned out differently [worse]. Please notice that he is NOT complaining about the results rather only that he feels we were not very flexible when it came to our Signature Ice Breakers.
I guess that is better than having him complain that the wedding didn't wasn't a success and that guests left early and also that because no one was having much fun that very few people ended up dancing...but hey at least we were extremely accomodating and flexible!

Please read every single other review on Weddingwire and compare it to this one and you can then decide for yourself. We thank our clients again for using our services and we hope he can have peace knowing that their guests had a fantastic time rather than focus on the fact that we wouldn't allow his reception to fail by honoring a wacky request. Some past clients have referred to us as the glue that holds everything on the wedding day together while still others look at us as the insurance policy that it was all worth the other money they spent on everything else because we guaranteed their event would be a success. Congratulations to you and we look forward to serving you on your special day!
What a fantastic experience it was working with Station Identification! Robert Poff and his crew are professionals to the extreem. My husband and I were not only pleased but surprised how much fun our guests had. We did not stop dancing all night long. The games kept the reception moving, no "dead time" during the event at all. Everyone was laughing and dancing throughout the reception. My guests are still calling and sending us emails raving about how much fun they had. My husband and I danced all night long. I even forgot I was wearing high heels I was having so much fun. Robert handled what could have been a disaster with the sound system for our outdoor ceremony like a champ and our guests never knew there was a problem. I can't say enough about Station Identification and their ability to turn my wedding reception into an occasion to remember for life! Thanks Robert! Ellen and Joe Lopez
Selecting Station Identification as our DJ was the best decision we made. Prior to the event, they were very exceptional. During a time of extreme stress for our families in the weeks before the wedding, they were organized, helpful, easy to work with, friendly and a blessing. The day of the wedding, it seemed that every time I looked around either Robert, Lauren or someone from their team was right there to help out. In addition to providing the music and entertainment for the evening, they provided an overall experience that was above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. Peace of mind, comfort and a personal touch made Station Identification an exceptional company to do business with, especially on the most important day of our life. We loved loved loved them!
Perfect! Perfect! Perfect! Robert and his team can make your wedding/reception a dream come true! They aren't just DJs but a full entertainment company who provided us with not only a DJ but an MC, lighting, games etc. Fantastic!
Loved the online song selection. We were able to select all the music played during every aspect of the wedding. Robert was extremely personable and we loved the unique "Bios" for introducing the wedding party.
We couldn't have been any happier with using Station Identification to DJ our wedding. We had an amazing time and so did our guests. Our dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The icebreakers and little touches were also so unique and made our wedding so special. My parents just used Station Identification for a second time to DJ their Super Bowl party and we had a blast then too. They are the best out there!
Vendor response to review
Thanks Jennifer, it was my best Superbowl Party ever! Oh and it was my first one too! LOL. You and Sean and all of your family were an absolute pleasure to have as clients.
P.S - I ran into your Mom and Dad last night at Ruby's in Fullerton. Small world huh?
Station Identification really made my wedding special. They were so professional and organized. I am so glad that we chose them to work with. No detail is overlooked. I loved having a timeline to know what was going on. Also, some of the highlights were the couple pink/blue flag dating game and the family participation on the family feud style game. They also helped us with a screen to show a video about our lives. It was great quality! I would highly recommend Station Identification!
Over the planning year of my Wedding, Robert became my favorite DJ and a my new BFF. He knows more about wedding receptions then anyone I know, and helped me devise a game plan to keep my reception rolling even though I refused to do some traditional wedding things (no boquet toss, no "name that song" table game, No money dance). He knows how to make a wedding fun and exciting without being overbearing or cheesy.
I also got to put my controlling nature to work by handpicking my songs along with a "do not play" list that is all done on his website.
The best part of their services is the way he does the Grand Entrance. He personalizes them in a way I have never seen at any wedding before. My guest were on there feet laughing and cheering.
He helped make this a great night.
ABSOLUTELY, HANDS DOWN, THE BEST DJ EVER. That's not only coming from the bride and groom, but from all of our guests that we've spoken to. Robert was worth every penny. He set the mood for the whole event and kept it going for 6 hours. He is easy to work with and is a genius at what he does. Seriously. Robert was exactly what we were looking for in a DJ. Trust this guy. The other vendors were quite impress with him. He is professional and organized. Of all of the vendors, he was the only one I trusted to take control of how he wanted to do things. I'm a control freak and I was ok letting Robert do what he does best. Even though I hate having people hire the same people as I did (because I like feeling special and having the best of everything), I just can't help but gush about Robert. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STATION IDENTIFICATION. I GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL LOVE HIS SERVICE.
Very professional, did everything we could of ask for. I want to get married all over again just to use Station Identification. They are the best.
Station Identification was awesome kept our eventful wedding flowing!
Choosing Station Identification was one of the best decisions I made when choosing vendors. I saw them at another wedding and knew that I wanted them to do my wedding because I left thinking, "that was the funnest wedding I have ever been to." They were slightly more expensive than other DJ's we met with but they were worth every penny. People left our wedding raving about the DJ and how much fun they had. They made our entire wedding run smoothly. They even provided a money bag for the money dance, because I forgot to get one! My wedding and all of my wonderful memories would not have been the same without them!
Station Identification was awesome. They worked with me and were very help though out the music selection process. My DJ definitely contributed to my reception going smoothly and everyone have a great time. I highly reccomend them!
Yes, this is a little pricey for a DJ, but you get so much more than a DJ, and you have Robert and his many years of experience in this business. He knows what he is talking about. The music was great, and the ice breaker games were a huge hit. We were not "young" marrieds by age, but by heart, and having a DJ willing to play some old stuff without making us feel old was great. All of our guests had a fabulous time and are still talking about this being the party of the year.
Station Identification was great from start to finish!!! Robert, the owner, was so nice, accommodating and helpful from the first time we spoke. The online tools are so convenient, easy to use, and allow you to customize your event over time, instead of having to make all of the decisions at once. The meetings (both consult and planning) were great. Professional, yet relaxed, and always had us leaving feeling happy that we'd chosen Station Identification. I want to emphasize that they were always quick to respond to any questions or requests I had from the time I contacted them throughout the entire six months leading up to my wedding, and were SO accommodating. Their advice was good and clearly full of experience, helping us to create exactly the kind of reception we wanted. They had worked at my venue many times before and thus knew exactly how to set up. Additionally, they worked with my coordinator at the venue and the officiant before hand on the time line and details. They were there the day of the wedding setting up on time, if not early, with no disruption or stress to me whatsoever. The wedding itself was then amazing!! Blake and Courtney were awesome! Always relaxed, Courtney made sure we were where we needed to be when we needed to be there. Blake played the music we requested, in an order that flowed and kept the party going all night. His personality as m.c. was a great addition, fun, entertaining and engaging without being at all corny or annoying. In conclusion, I couldn't have imagined a better dj experience and performance for our wedding. I would definitely use Station Identification again, and recommend it to any bride that wants a stress-free, always pleasant and accommodating, knowledgeable, professional and fun dj with great equipment!
Robert and the whole Station Identification team were incredible to work with - so professional yet fun. All the guests loved the ice breaker games and that they could make music requests online before the wedding. That really helped to populate the music list ahead of time. All the planning for the ceremony and reception music was done online with an easy interface that made everything at our wedding run super smooth. Robert was always thinking one step ahead of the next item that needed to be done at the reception to keep the perfect flow. I've never seen a full dance floor at any of my other friends weddings. But everyone loved the music. Robert is not just a DJ he is definitely a professional MC that my parents really enjoyed.
SIE was awesome, and well worth what my husband and I paid for their services. We literally did nothing during the reception except enjoy ourselves and go with the flow. SIE kept the flow going, got all of our guests involved and stuck to the music choices we had discussed beforehand.
They are very detail oriented, and provide a ceremony/reception schedule down to five minute increments. We had numerous guests complimenting the dj all night, and everyone had a great time.
We had the perfect ceremony and reception music. Robert and his crew were very professional and very helpful with suggestions. His team is great with following up and items and getting back to you in a timely manner. I even got my best friend to use him at her wedding because he was so entertaining. His "games" made the crowd very upbeat !
Robert went above and beyond what we ever imagined. He was very thorough, had great tools and tips to help us find a variety of music for all of our guests, as well as, providing us with a FUN cermony that family and friends still talk about today. He knows what he's doing and he's great at what he does! Our pictures and video reflect the fun we had and we thank Robert and Station Identification for making that happen!
Robert & Station Identification saved my wedding! We had a semi-formal outdoor wedding with a cocktail-style reception. Our families and friends are all very energetic and outgoing, so we wanted a DJ that would really make it a party! We looked at several different DJs and absolutely fell in love with Robert. He was professional and fun, offered many different options, and actually seemed like he cared. He didn't try to force our reception to fit his own pre-scheduled outline (like many other DJs did) and really went out of his way to make it personal and memorable. Even though he was a little out of our budget at the time, we made it work because he offered so much more than any other DJ we saw. And I will tell anyone who asks, that he is worth EVERY PENNY! My wedding coordinator went on "vacation" the day before the wedding without telling me, and left us with a coordinator who was new to the job and not very nice. She pretty much came in, lined us up, and left. Robert became our wedding coordinator for the entire wedding! He handled all announcements, helped organize our guests for photos and various events throughout the night, and even had an emergency kit for when my train ripped! His ice breakers were the highlight of the reception and my friends and family STILL tell me it was the best reception they have ever been to. After going to several other weddings where the bride and groom didn't think the DJ would make as big an impact as they do, I can safely say I DID have the best DJ ever! Thank you Robert and to your wonderful assistant Kourtney! I can never tell you how much I appreciated you on my wedding day!
What an awesome experience it was working with Station Identification! Their response time, attention to detail and ability to create an evening we will never forget was exactly what we were looking for... and received! Most importantly through the whole process though, we felt as if we were the only client Robert had. We would use Station Identification again and will tell all our friends and family about them. Thanks so much guys!
Robert and his team did an excellent job at our wedding!! I feel they really made the whole event flow perfectly and our guests had a great time! We have had complements from many of our guests on how great the DJ was! THank you Station Identification!!
We booked Station Identification Entertainment for all our Music and Entertainment for the evening. This was the best move we could have possibly made. Robert Poff and his team of professionals were fabulous!! They did a great job of keeping our Ceremony and Reception flowing smoothly, keeping things fun and upbeat, and getting everyone involved. My husband and I received many compliments from our guests including things like, "We've never attended a wedding as fun as this one!", "Your wedding was a blast, all weddings should be that much fun!!!" Honestly, it was the best money we spent, wouldn't have been the same party without them!!!
Station Identification was so great and made our wedding a true success. They were very professional and organized. My emails and phone calls were returned within a couple hours and they were on top of everything. Station Identification can give you what no other dj can - a fun, energetic, unique experience. Everyone at our wedding loved Robert and the staff and all the neat things they incorporate into their work. Station Identification was excellent and I would recommend anyone to use them! They truly are like no other dj we have seen!
Thanks Station Identification for making our wedding the best wedding ever!
Ever since I met my husband, he has always said he wanted to have a “fun” wedding and so, when it came to wedding planning, he couldn’t wait to choose the DJ. Robert at Station Identification met and exceeded all of my husband’s needs for a DJ. I refused to hire a day-of coordinator because I simply didn't think it was worth the money, so we created our own detailed day-of timeline with SI. Robert not only emailed the timeline to all of our vendors, but he also took that document and ran the entire reception right on schedule for us. He (or his assistant) came up to us often to let us know that we should be moving on to the next item on the agenda, and he kept the dance floor hopping all night. We actually had our wedding guests trying to come up with extra money at the end of the night just to keep the reception going for another hour because they were having such a great time! Prior to the wedding, we used his web-based system to determine our “must plays,” “do not plays,” and specific songs for the cake cutting, first dance, wedding party dance, etc. This was extremely helpful in determining which songs we wanted and at our last meeting with Robert before the wedding, he was able to print this out and make sure we were all on the same page. He's also great with managing a crowd and has some great games (that our guests, 8 months later, are still raving about) to keep your guests entertained during dinner or when the bride and groom are taking pictures. I highly recommend Robert at Station Identification. He will make sure you have an amazing time at your wedding and it’s a day you’ll never forget!

My wedding was two months ago and I am still getting so many compliments on our dj. Robert and his staff were always available for my husband and I. We were able to relax and enjoy our day without having to worry about anything. Everything from the ceremony to the ice breakers to our last dance went off perfectly. Our dance floor was completely packed and everyone had the best time. I would highly recommend Station Identification to anyone.
They were very professional in attitude and appearance. I loved the games and how they really got the guests involved, people had so much fun! Francisco, my DJ, was awesome, I couldn't have asked for anyone better. He was fun, energetic, professional and very easy going. I am so glad to have booked Station Identification, I really think it made my wedding reception a success.
station identification made our wedding! many, mnay of our guests commented on
what a great job the dj had done and that they have never had so much fun at a wedding. my husband and i knew we made the right choice from day one.
Robert was awesome....we had nothing but compliments and everyone had a great time at our wedding. People loved the games and are still talking about how funny the Newlywed Game was. We would highly recommend Robert to anyone who was planning a wedding...he was very organized, easy to work with and helped to make our wedding day special.
Station Identification was amazing. They were super professional and very organized. They did everything they said they were going to do and more. It was very important to us that our family and friends had a good time at our reception and enjoyed the celebration. We wanted them to feel a part of all the events. However, we were paying for the wedding ourselves and were trying to put together a great event, and be conscious of the cost at the same time. We struggled with the extra cost of Station Identification over the cost of some of the other DJ's. But, in the end, we decided to go for it because we were so impressed with the services offered and the extras. In the end, it was a great decision. Our family and friends had a great time and said that the entertainment provided by Station Identification was a big part of that. We are so glad we trusted our gut instincts and went with Station Identification. We would recommend them to anyone!!!
Robert and Station Identification worked tirelessly for us to give us a memorable and unique wedding that we will cherish forever. The games and extras made everyone feel so comfortable and have so much fun. The dance floor was rockin' all night long. In summary, the perfect complement for our reception.
The service provided by Station Identification was great. They were very entertaining and professional.
I saw Robert and his crew (Station Identification) while I was a groomsman for a friend's wedding. I was very impressed with how well he got the crowd engaged and made the entire wedding reception so much more fun. I've been to weddings where the DJ is horrible and lack of coordination/planning during the reception really brings down the fun level and can even detract from what was an altogether great ceremony. I knew I wanted Station Identification (specifically Robert) to be the host/DJ during our reception as well.
Throughout the planning process, all the staff at Station Identification were not only the most helpful with planning our reception (which I feel should be a given), but went above and beyond to ensure that the night would truly be a memorable one. From the very beginning, Station Identification setup a personalized program that would appeal to our audience and cater to what we wanted for our reception. The fact that they had a systematic approach to the entire planning process was such a sigh of relief as it was one less area that we had to worry about and plan.
Another unique feature about Station Identification is their great technology setup that allows you to browse songs/ideas/themes online at your own leisure and schedule. Since my wife and were in NYC and couldn't meet Robert directly before the wedding, we coordinated all the planning online (through their website), on the phone and through email. Everything worked out great and we saved a lot of time and energy with this aspect of the wedding.
Needless to say, I continue to recommend Station Identification to friends and family today. If you're planning a reception, I suggest that, at the very least, you look them up and speak with them. You and your spouse will not be disappointed.
This is certainly not just a "DJ" and I can't imagine what my wedding would have been like without Robert and the Station Identification team! Station Identification provided more service and assistance to me and my family than they even let on in our previous meetings. The team was observant and respectful to me and my guests. With their help, the night flowed with continuity and ease. We had such a fun time thanks to S.I.'s creativity and professionalism. Most importantly they created priceless memories no one at the wedding will ever forget! They are worth every penny and more!
Loved them! People still talk about how good our reception was. They kept the guests entertained with games and fun music. We had a blast with them and they totally helped make our wedding a memorable one.
Station Identification/Robert Poff's service was exceptional. I could not have imagined our wedding turning out any better and that was largely due to his involvement. Book him, you will be so glad that you did.
Robert and his staff were the most organized and professional vendor that we worked with throughout the entire wedding planning process. Robert received raving reviews from all of our guests and we have refered him to numerous couples. I would recommend him to anyone. Young, old... he is very interested in specifically getting to know what will best be suited for your particular audience and he definately acheives that. Believe it or not, the DJ will MAKE or BREAK your wedding!!! Station Identification receives most of their business from referals which says a lot. In fact, I heard about Robert by attending a wedding that he was the DJ. I still have never seen any better. Your guests will not be bored and everyone will participate in your event, which means your guests will stay longer, and you will have a great time. Best of all, the bride and groom do not have to worry the whole night because he takes care of everything and makes the night run very smoothly!
Station identification was amazing!!! They worked with us on every aspect of music from the ceremony to our cocktail hour to the reception. They did an amazing job of keeping our guests entertained and engaged in the reception. It was worth every penny that we paid
Over the planning year of my Wedding, Robert became my favorite DJ and a my new BFF. He knows more about wedding receptions then anyone I know, and helped me devise a game plan to keep my reception rolling even though I refused to do some traditional wedding things (no bouquet toss, no "name that song" table game, No money dance). He knows how to make a wedding fun and exciting without being overbearing or cheesy.

He helped make this a great night.
Two days before our wedding day, my husband's father passed away and of course we had to dramatically change some of the things we had planned for our reception. Robert was on top of it and we were able to alter some things with no problem.
After our wedding ceremony, we had photos taken outside and Robert and his crew were able to keep our guests entertained while they waited in the reception hall.
When our wedding reception was over, we were already receiving feedback not only from our guests but also from the venue owners about how fun and entertaining our reception was.
It was truly a pleasure working with Station Identification because they listen to your needs, ensure it'll be the best day and everything will run smoothly.
Even one year after our wedding, we are STILL getting compliments about how our wedding was one of the most fun people had ever had during a reception.
Very professional...had a wonderful time and everything went off without a hitch!
Robert has been extremely helpful during the planning of my wedding. He welcomes questions and is very easy to get in contact with. His website also has a planning section for clients which includes ideas, online event planning forms, and has an interactive music database.
I will give a full review after the wedding.
Fantastic service. I couldnt be happier with the job done!
Station Identification is a wonderful entertainment company! We have yet to be disappointed in anyway. Their staff are always professional, helpful and easy to work with. I would recommend their services for any bride or client looking for entertainment.
Robert Poff is a great DJ, lots of fun and always professional. He will put a timeline together for you and keep your event running all night. Robert is on our required DJ list here at the Estate and it is always a pleasure to work with him.
I've worked with many DJ's over the years and Robert and his staff are spot on! As a wedding cinematographer they keep us in the loop and run a tight ship at the reception to ensure a great party flow.
We have used and referred to family and friends, Station Identification. We originally met Robert while planning the wedding for one of the partners here. He is awesome and we knew we had found a great wedding D.J. He kept the crowd entertained, gave the bride and groom a detailed timeline and was extremely efficient and organized. He was personable and really knew how to get the crowd involved. We trusted him enough for our wedding, and we would certainly recommend him to others. Station Identification is Awesome.
I have photographed 200+ weddings and have seen my share of good and bad wedding DJs. So far, I have only had the pleasure of working the same wedding with Station Identification once. They left a great impression and we have recommended them to many people since then -- trying selfishly to get to work with them again! :) What I liked about their style is that they made it a fun event without BEING the event, as I have seen some other DJs do. They perfectly kept the party going, as a good DJ should.
Professional, personable, and tons of fun! You won't be disappointed if Station Identification is getting your party started!
Always fun to work with the crew over at Station Identification! Their attention to detail is what makes them stand out. Providing itineraries well in advance to all the vendors, us included, ensures the Newlyweds don't have to worry about a thing on their wedding day. Can't wait to work with Station Identification Entertainment again!
Station identification keeps the party rocken! What a great bunch of professional guys, and gals!
We always know it's going to be a great wedding when they show up!!!
Station Identification is one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with in my 14 years of owning my own video production business. Robert, the owner, is always on top of all the details associated with someones wedding day. From the planning stages all the way through the big day, Robert makes sure the bride and groom get the best service available. As a videographer he helps to make my job so much easier by always keeping me up to date on all the days events. The bride and groom get a better video because of this.
I am proud to endorse such a great business!
As wedding officiators for 20 years, Dr. Brian Trott and Dr. Linda Wainwright Trott of The Clergy Network, have worked with few wedding professionals who continue in the event profession for an extended length of time. There is good reason for this as many attributes are required to make a successful career in the wedding and event services industry. Hard work, perserverence, compentency, attention to detail, client satisfaction, along with people skills which include a pleasant and conscientious demeanor are only a few such winning qualities. Robert of Station Identification is one of these few who have maintained a consistently good repution with The Clergy Network. Please feel free to contact Dr. Brian Trott or Dr. Linda Trott at The Clergy Network to discuss our experiences with Station Identification.
I have worked with many DJ's and Station Identification Entertainment always delivers a fantastic show. Brides and Grooms as well as guests always comment how entertained they were and how professional they were. You will not be disappointed.
