Jonathan did an AMAZING job djing and mcing my wedding. He's a quiet and friendly guy when you meet him, but he has a great DJ personality that isn't understated or over the top at the event. As far as the wedding day is concerned, he was very professional and he followed all of my requests. He was flexible in changing the order of his songs on the spot and took my guests' requests to heart. I had a Persian-American wedding with both Persian and American dance music and he intertwined the two very well. When I asked him if I could send him Persian music (during the planning process), he was more than happy to add my music to his library, which shows me he is passionate about being the best at what he does. I don't generally go out of my way to recommend vendors or services, but I'll definitely be singing his praises to all of my friends for the next few years!
Working with Terry Stewart was truly a blessing! He was by far the best--most helpful and responsive vendor I worked without throughout my wedding planning process. He was the one that I knew I did not have to worry about.
Terry is very quick about responding to any calls or emails that you send his way and is excellent at listening and understanding what you want. He gives suggestions if you need them, and ultimately is just totally concerned with making sure he understands how you want YOUR wedding to go. He has a lot of experience and is very likeable to any crowd or age group (there was a big range of people at my wedding, so that was great). He also has other things like dance lights that really contribute a lot to dance time--those were awesome--a must!
His best quality is being able to read the mood of the event. He absolutely incorporated anything I ever told him--in terms of musical preferences (and the fact that I have a big Italian family) into our wedding and made everybody happy. The music was so classy throughout dinner, and when it became clear that everybody wanted to dance, he did not disappoint! He incorporated songs that we had asked for in advance with other selections that really fit the mood, and it was simply brilliant! He was great at mixing it up at appropriate times too. It all flowed together well but still had breaks from the major dance music to include some slow songs or some other music that both the older and younger crowd would like. It was just perfect.
Another critical point was value. I met with a handful of DJ's, and Terry was by far the most reasonable and his contract was very succinct and clear (and didn't require a massive upfront deposit or try to confuse you with a dozen different "packages").
Weeks later, people are still telling me how great the music was--I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank...
The best decision I made regarding my wedding (besides the decision to say "I Do") was having Stewart's DJ as my disc jockey! Terry was our DJ for the evening and we dealt with him throughout the entire process leading up to our Big Day. The process was seamless thanks to Terry and his many years of experience. He was very professional but still very fun and accomodationg to our personalities. He was easy to discuss things with and he made everything happen that we had discussed in our planning sessions. Even when I went through my crazy OCD bride moments the few days before the wedding, Terry always answered his phone and made any last minute changes I had.
My guests raved about him and about how well he helped orchestrate the evening but he was never too agressive. I love how he took control of the timing plan I had for the evening. Everything was on schedule and guests knew exactly what was going in order to pay attention at the right times because Terry was very good at announcing the important moments throughout the evening.
One of our groomsmen wanted to dance to a specific song with his wife and requested it to Terry. Terry told him to basically just point at him when he wanted the song to come on and he'll make it happen. Our groomsmen got his wife on the dancefloor, pointed at Terry and he seamlessly went from the current song to the requested song and our friend and his wife got to have their dance.
Thank you Terry and everyone at Stewart's DJ for making our wedding more than amazing...it was perfect...I wanna do it again!!! But I will settle for reffering Terry to my friends (my future sister-in-law wants to book him).
The best decision, seriously! (and very affordable!)
Terry was fantastic! He truly is a great MC. Our wedding went off perfectly and a lot of the perfectly had to do with Terry being the Master of ceremony. When you have a blast at your own wedding with your guests calling for an encore song at the end of the night, you too will know that you made the best choice.
Terry was great, he provided us with everything we needed for a fun reception and a smooth ceremony. We had a family emergency the week of the wedding and were unable to return any emails
or song choices, and Terry simply rolled with the punches and put on a great party. Great value as well!
Terry, we enjoyed your service, we appreciate all that you did to help make our wedding run much smoother. You were great at annoucing and everything, it made me feel at ease knowing you were going to take care of whatever needed & partnering with Michele in all that was needed.
Ohhhh man what can I say. Terry was AMAZING at our wedding! We got so many compliments from guests, but we really didn't need to hear them-- it was evident that EVERYONE was having a great time. I seriously wish I could post photos on here, just to give you a visual of how amazing it was. We had about 200 people at our wedding and I would say that at any given time, you couldn't see more than a handful of people sitting down. We literally had about a half sheet of leftover cake because everyone was on the dance floor instead of eating dessert!!! (Win-win situation for us!) ;) Everyone from our ringbearer to my 82 year old grandma was getting down. It was remarkable and SO fun.
Terry was also super easy and fun to talk to, he read our crowd VERY well, and he was able to craft a fabulous playlist based on a handful of songs we told him we liked. He accommodated all of our obscure requests for the special dance songs and kept the event running like clockwork. Absolutely fabulous work and SO reasonably priced! I would hire him again in a flash. We could not have asked for a better DJ. :)
Jonathan Warren was the emcee at our wedding. We had a short deadline and Jonathan went out of his way to accommodate our schedule. He was so professional and a ton of fun to work with. He was very helpful, gave us advise but allowed us to make the music our own. He went out of his way to find music I wanted that he didn't have. I can't say enough about how professional Jonathan is or about how much we loved working with him. Thanks Jonathan! You made our day a huge success! Karen & Dave
Terry Stewart (of Stewart's DJ) was our wedding DJ. Terry is truly a people person, and that quality came shining through at our wedding, where we received numerous compliments about the music selection. He did an excellent job of reading the crowd, so that the older guests were just as happy with the music as the younger ones.
Terry did a great job of throwing in some special surprises throughout the evening, and helping everyone to feel very connected to the party. He is great at that! And he kept the party moving. He is very experienced in the business, and has great intuition about how to keep the flow of the evening comfortable.
Terry is also very reasonably priced, in comparison with other DJ services. He does not nickel and dime you for every little upgrade.
In addition to everything else, he has a British accent that is very charming. :-)
Terry is awesome!!! My husband and I felt like we hit it off with him the first time we met. At the wedding, he had EVERYONE on the dance floor the entire time!! From the first song he played, everyone got up and didn't sit back down. He played perfect music. Not only were our friends dancing, but our parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins of all ages were too. He is a very professional DJ who really knows what he is doing. He also worked with my other vendors to make sure things ran smoothly. He was a great MC as well. LOVE his accent!! A true pleasure to work with. GREAT prices!! Couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Thank you Terry!!!
Terry and Jonathan are nothing but amazing with the service that they provide. Terry is such a professional and knows how to make everything run smoothly. He worked very closely with my other vendors to ensure everything went as planned. The music selection was second to none and he had everyone dancing the night away. I highly recommend Stewart's DJ to any bride out there.
Terry is great to work with. He doesn't just sit back as a DJ, he makes sure your entire event runs smoothly and he serves as an MC as well. He improvises when needed to make sure that each guest as well as the bride and groom, have a fantastic time. I have worked with Terry on multiple occasions and I would recommend him to anyone. He is by far one of the best!!!!
Terry is great! He did my sister's wedding and there was no other choice for us. A DJ can make or break a party and we had complete faith in Terry.
Terry is a very professional and accomodating DJ. He was able to find all of our songs that we requested (even the obscure ones) and played them at the wedding. He accomodated our guests' requests for songs at the event easily. I was also impressed with Terry's M.C. skills. He did a great job announcing the events and special guests. He was extremely professional and always returned my phone calls promptly. All music planning was stress-free, thanks to him. He definitely played a big part in making our reception a fun party! I would recommend him highly to anybody needing professional DJ services!!!
We selected Terry Stewart DJ.s on recommendation and personal interviews. Their obvious experience, professionalism and cooperation were delightful. Terry and Jonathan definitely helped the evening to run smoothly. The rain made a last minute change for the ceremony location but they handled that too. Terry selected a good variety of music - the fact that EVERYONE was dancing and having a good time is a testament to how cool our family and friends are and how well Terry and Jonathan choose music. From the bride, "Terry was also very patient with me during some last minute changes and when we were a bit late getting info to him".
Terry did everything that we asked for, and played music that really had the crowd dancing. He was always very professional and the wedding guests loved his accent.
Everyone raved about how great our DJ was. Kept a very diverse group of guests dancing into the wee hours of the night. AMAZING!
Terry was absolutely awesome!
We had one guest come up to us during the middle of our day and say "He's playing nothing but the good stuff!" People danced late into the night, and all of the credit for that goes to Terry and his assistant Jonathan.
During the planning process, Terry really took the time to understand what we wanted in each of the stages of the wedding (i.e. ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, reception), and he really created the perfect vibe for each with spot on music choices. He was also an absolutely great emcee--not an ounce of sleeze or cheese to be found. The perfect balance of professionalism and just plain old rockin' fun, we would recommend Stewart's DJ in a heartbeat.
What a selection of music of all different types that is what we got from Stewart’s Disc Jockey. The Disc Jockey service was really good to us as they played all different types of music that all of my wedding guests really enjoyed and they also told me about how much they liked the service that Stewart’s Disc Jockey provided to us. I have to say they were not hard to do business with they told us what they could do for us and then we went from there. I was satisfied with my choice of having them be the Disc Jockey for our wedding.
This DJ is awesome! He is very professional and will do whatever you want. He is not one of those cheesy DJ's that is annoying and tries to be the center of attention. Terry is a great MC that works with your vendors to keep the event running soothly. I highly recommend Stewart's DJ.
Terry Stewart is a class act and a true professional! We love working with him and have done so many times over the years. He has a great attention to detail and makes the day go off without a hitch. He's one of the few DJs that we recommend to clients.
Stewarts DJ is a fabulous business to work with. They are professional, always on time, play great music and know that it's your day to shine, not theirs. You don't have to worry about the DJ getting "carried away" when you use Stewarts DJ. I highly recommend them!
Stewarts DJs do so much more than play music. We focus on making sure all of our events are a smashing success. Our years of experience are an invaluable asset to assure you a memorable occasion.
AProven Track Record:
We've done thousands of parties from Weddings, Class Reunions, Birthdays, Anniversary Parties and Corporate Events.
We're people people, but we're not clowns:
A "Wacky" DJ maybe great for Children's parties, but adults quickly grow tired of a DJ who demands all of their attention. Most parties call for a DJ with a strong master of ceremonies skills and the wisdom to use his own words sparingly. You are the star of your party, not your DJ.
Master of Ceremonies:
Keeps things moving smoothly. We make all the necessary announcements clearly so that all your guests will know what's going on. You may have seen the DJ's that just won't keep quiet and talk on the microphone all night. We are NOT that way! Also, you may have seen the opposite of the spectrum where the DJ says nothing at all. We are also NOT that way!
Reading your crowd and playing the right music. There is an art to playing the right song at the right time. Every crowd is different from the next so being able to read the crowd is an essential skill that an experienced Disc Jockey will provide.
Musical Knowledge & Variety:
Appealing to many ages and tastes. It is absolutely worthless to hire a DJ that only knows one or two genres of music well. Your guests will have many musical tastes, and there is simply no room for a DJ who sits there and imposes his/her musical tastes on you and your guests. An experienced and skilled DJ will take requests and have knowledge about the types of music being requested, from 40s to 60s Rock, 70s Rock & Disco, 80s Retro, 90s Dance, Classic Vocalists, top 40 and more.
Handling the details before and during your reception. An experienced DJ spends a good deal of time coordinating the details and working with your other vendors during the wedding to ensure a smooth flow to your event. The DJ is often the "Go-To" person for your other vendors, catering staff, and guests.
