Excellent! We had a british guy- I think his name was John and he did an amazing job!! Very good with the crowd and kept the wedding rolling along!
You will not meet or know your DJ until the wedding day. Luckily, he was a very nice person and did well for us. When you meet with the owner or manager, don't let him talk you into a slide show if you do not want it. He makes it sound like this is what is supposed to happen at all weddings. We did not choose to have a slide show and he tried to make us feel guilty because THEY chose to do business with us in Riverside and had a long distance to drive.
This DJ promised a lot, spent a lot of time (and made us do a lot of work) building a music library exactly to our taste. Only a few of those songs actually showed up on the wedding day. He arrived sweaty and disheveled, but cleaned up and did a good job with the ceremony music. Then he played our cocktail music at a faster than recorded speed. When he was approached about this, he initially refused to change it until my matron of honor became forceful. The rest of the night I heard about three songs that we'd requested, broken up by cheesy DJ standards and ending with the very rude "Hit the road jack." He also completely bungled our slideshow, playing the wrong music, and insisting that everyone pay attention while he fumbled with the projection screen. Because of the guests we had, the details we added to the night, and our ceremony and love for each other, a lot of people had a great time.
