The DJ Guy
Ed was great to work with, he kept Tim's and my wedding dancing all night! He showed up on time, was extremely professional, and guest after the party were telling us that we had an excellent DJ. Thank you so much, Ed kept the energy of the party going all night!
It was a pleasure to have Ed working for us. He dressed well and presented himself as a true professional. He was very down to earth and didn't act arrogant like we've seen at some of our friend's weddings.
The slideshow he put together with the pictures we gave him was perfect! He even added a nice message at the end.
My husband Dan and I were amazed at how he kept most of our guests dancing well beyond the set end time for the night. We asked him if we could extend our contract an extra hour and he did. He even went a few minutes over that extra hour as an encore was requested by our guests!
I would highly recommend The DJ Guy (Ed) to anyone in the Brighton area. His prices are incredible and the service is far better than others we've seen.
Al was very professional in our initial meeting and on the phone during the few follow up calls that were needed. He indicated up front that although his brother is his partner, and even though someone else was thinking about booking him that night, that we paid first and that he personally would be doing our wedding. I confirmed this with him when I signed the contract and followed up with an email. It was important to me to book with someone I had actually met. So you can imagine my surprise when Al was not the person that showed up to DJ our wedding. His brother showed up. I was led to beleive all along the way that Al was going to be our DJ. Al had many opportunities to correct this. His brother was not apprised of our song list. The second song of the night was one that was on the "do not play" list. He did not really have a good grasp of our style or songs we liked. I was also told that it would be 'no problem at all' to extend the DJ for an hour or two at the end of the night. When 10:30 arrived and our initial time block was up, I approached the DJ to extend the wedding and he told me that was not possible, and that he 'had another gig' at 11:30. I find that very hard to beleive. I was also told by friends after the wedding that the DJ spent a lot of time standing around the appetizer table getting his share of the appetizers. This DJ required all payment up front in advance of the wedding. Very disappointing wedding entertainment.
Vendor response to review
There is no one named "Al" that works for this company. If a person can't remember who they met and spoke with, what else do you suppose is incorrect? The bride was told that there may be a chance that another DJ would be booked due to a prior booking and was never told otherwise. The couple was also made aware that being an outdoor wedding at their home, that they would need to provide adequate power. During the very first song the power went out and the DJ was left without power for 10-15 minutes while they went to get an additional cord ran from their garage. This can easily start things off badly. The DJ was simply concerned about getting the music going again as quickly as possible. People are looking at him as if this is HIS fault, when it's obviously NOT. It's very easy to accidentally play a track (One that was on a do not play list) that is requested at 99% off all weddings after dealing with other major issues. I don't know whether this was played or not, there were only 3 songs on the do not play list, one of which was Billy Idol - Mony Mony (I'm guessing this was the track). The DJ DID have a copy of the songs they requested and crossed them out when played. At any point during the reception, they could have made additional
This wedding was priced very low because of the location. Ceremony equipment was provided at no cost ($100 savings). The wedding took place on a VERY cold day in October and my DJ told me that everyone had left the tent an HOUR before the contract ended. As far as food goes, ALL clients are told in advance that if food is not provided, the DJ will put on a mix and leave for a dinner break. We sometimes put in up to 10 hours between setup and teardown. Michigan law states rules about breaks and time to eat. While we don't always take breaks we do need to eat so that we don't pass out, we aren't
The bride never bothered to call or email me about any of this and had she done so in a reasonable time, I may have offered a partial refund. At the very least, I could have gotten a better understanding of the situation than what was posted here.
You can't please everyone all the time, and no matter what, whether it's a photographer, DJ or wedding planner... we all get bridezillas from time to time.
Ed the DJ Guy was great! He did a fantastic job of playing a variety of music so that guests of all ages could enjoy the party, at the end of the night there were still a ton of people on the dance floor. The only drawback was that he mispronounced my father's first name (it's Spanish). His price is very reasonable, and I would highly recommend him!
Ed from the DJ Guy did such a great job at our wedding! He played music for our ceremony, followed by 5 hours of music at our reception. He was extremely professional, upbeat, and polished. He did a great job responding to the crowd's taste in music while being sure to include my (the bride's!) requests. For the quality of service provided, he was very affordable. Highly recommended.

There are a lot of amateurs charging "too good to be true" prices. There is a reason they charge less, you get what you pay for. According to the Knot; after the wedding, most brides say the one thing they wish they had spent more on is their entertainment. I promise you this: YOU'LL NEVER SAY THAT IF YOU HIRE The DJ Guy!
