DJ Seth Isaacs of Beat Train Productions is incredible. Based on prior experience at other wedding who used DJs I was a little apprehensive about having one for our wedding. However, once we realized how incredibly expensive a good band is we decided to go this route - and were ecstatic we did. Seth was great to work with - we went over a game plan for opening dances, slow dances, must-play and "don't play" songs well in advance of the wedding. We gave him the general instruction that we like music that we would recognize - not neccessarily all new or top-40 tracks just nothing too under-the-radar. From the beginning he was always very professional and patient with us. He was always on top of the schedule, even when we weren't, which was really helpful when you are planning your own wedding.
From the second the music started at our reception, I knew we were in good hands - he had such a great feel on the pulse of the room and where to go with the music it was really impressive. I remember the first song we had chosen beforehand was a great starter for a wedding, but unlike a lot of weddings, the dance floor was packed right away (making it unnecessary to draw the crowd out). That first song was not overly up-beat but the crowd was certainly ready for a party. DJ Seth clearly felt that, and quickly moved to a perfect song for the mood and just took off from there. The rest of the night the music was perfect, exactly what we were looking for and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. I cannot remember what the song was but I remember that he played something immediately after the cake-cutting that brought everybody right back into party mode. I distinctly remember thinking at that moment that we had hired the best wedding DJ. I would certainly recommend him for any event.
Also - I should note that we got in touch with DJ Seth based on a recommendation for the entire company, Beat Train, from our photographer, who has done events with several of the DJs and liked all of them. We listened to some sample playlists from several DJs and thought Seth sounded like a great match for us.
