the Lowest Price for your DJ?
WHY THE LOWEST PRICE IS NOT
ALWAYS YOUR BEST OPTION!
Choosing a Dj without first
interviewing one based on price alone could be a HUGE
mistake. Beware of low price and sales gimmicks such as 55%
off if you book by a certain date. I guarantee you there
will be another special next week and the week after. Very large companies
have a hard time getting to know their customers and
maintaining quality control with their employees thus
high level of customer service.
consider when hiring a dj:
Wire: Make sure you hire a company with a 4.6 rating
or higher that has at least 25 reviews.
careful of company profiles with just 1 Wedding Wire
review on most of their testimonials. Remember
anyone can make up an email address and post a
review. This should raise a red flag why a bride
reviews just the dj company and the bulk of their
testimonials are 1 single review.
or at least talk to your dj THAT WILL BE AT YOUR
EVENT before hiring them so you can
get a feel for that person's demeanor and experience level.
Insist your assigned Dj's name is listed on your
great but is that the dj that will be at your event?
As I have said before, get the djs name written on the
contract. Some companies will show you a great demo
and then send someone else that is not nearly as
talented to your event.
hire a company that is not insured, does not purchase legal
music or is not registered as a legitimate business.
company's website is homemade, has misspellings,
cheesy or simplistic then most likely so is their
service. Is there a section on their website that profiles their disc
jockeys? If not, then they are either embarrassed
about their staff or there is some other reason why
they do not want to divulge who works for them. It
could possibly be that their employee turnover ratio
is very high or they do not have a staff at all.
Their mission is to sell the job, look for the
lowest paid person to do the job and make as much
profit as they can.
These articles are from actual
brides and grooms who booked the lowest price! The company's name
were in these articles but out of fairness we will just
call them Company X. This is probably the most important
event you will ever host. Don't ruin it and be
embarrassed on your wedding day in front of your family
This company ruined so many moments of my wedding! They
were horrible! The DJ wouldn't call me back, then
canceled the day before my wedding. They waited to tell
me so I was just calling everyone i could trying to get
a hold of anyone. Finally I did and they said they had
another DJ lined up. He showed up looking like a
homeless man in a suit with boxes of CDs. I spent all
this money on a wedding for him to put card board boxes
of CDs at the front of the reception. He took forever to
get our first dance song on after we were announced. He
stopped me and my husbands first dance mid way through
and turned it off. Me and my father were going to start
a song and then stop it mid way through and go into a
song that we use to dance to all the time when I was
little. He didn't have the right song and in front of
all the guests just kept saying "That's what they told
me!!!" He didn't play any of the songs i requested on
their check list of songs you'd like to hear, he played
inappropriate songs for kids being in the room, my guest
spent all night trying to get me and my dads dance back
with no help from the DJ. He was a nightmare!!! The
company did reimburse part of my money for the DJ but
they were still snippy and acted like they didn't
believe me. Overall there are moments from my wedding
that I never get back because of this company. Do not
use them!!!! They are lazy, your rep will change
constantly throughout the time you book and they won't
ever call you back if you need something, they are slow
at letting you know if anything has happened and their
staff are filled with people who no one wants to work
with in the first place which is why their with them.
It's the only way they'll be able to get a job. Watch
out with this one! It's not worth it!!!! Spend the extra
money! It's a whole bunch of planning rejects trying to
run a business they have no business being in.

Two days before my
wedding, I finally received a call from my DJ. Five
minutes into the phone call I was in tears. My DJ was a
brand new amateur who basically did this part time. He
spoke very little English and had an extremely thick
accent that was very hard to understand. He had not
heard of most of the music I was requesting. He even
asked me if I could provide my own CD's for him to use.
I called my coordinator who miraculously was
unavailable. I finally got all the way to the manager of
the company who basically said oh well, you should have
requested a specific DJ, and you've already paid so not
our problem. I was heartbroken.
The day of my wedding was beautiful. My pictures turned
out okay but completely unoriginal, staged and very
boring. My photographer didn't take any candid shots of
anyone at the wedding so basically my whole album is
just generic staged shots from after the service. Thank
god we are in the age of digital cameras and most of my
wedding pictures came from friends and other guest. My
DJ was a nightmare. He was unable to speak into the
microphone; he struggled to use his equipment. He forgot
the music list I had provided him, he played the song my
husband I was to dance to three times before we got up
to dance and then when we finally did dance he didn't
play the right song. Out of desperation my sister went
and got a bunch of CD's from her car so he would have
something to play and then the jerk never gave them back
to her. At most wedding the DJ is responsible for all
the announcements and moving things along. Since my DJ
felt uncomfortable talking into the microphone one of my
guest had to make all the announcements and it was a
total mess. There was no flow, no one new when we were
cutting cake, having our first dance, or tossing the
bouquet. I was embarrassed and unbelievably
The manager of the company again took no responsibility.
Please don't make the same mistake I did. Don't use this
company. After much research after my wedding I found a
number of women with the same story. It's your basic
bait and switch operation. You meet amazing people and
then they switch them out with inexperienced employees.
If you know anyone who is getting married, please
forward them this blog. I would hate for any bride to go
through what I went through.

My husband and I
got married in the Kansas City area and hired Company X
to do our pictures, video, and DJ because the samples on
their website made them look fantastic. Unfortunately,
it turned out terrible. The DJ was awful--he didn't do
anything. My brother--who was part of the wedding
party--announced us when we got to the reception and
MC'd pretty much everything else (instructions for the
reception line, getting food, starting the toasts, doing
our first dance, father-daughter dance, cutting the
cake, etc). He didn't have a clue how to do the bouquet
toss or the garter toss. We didn't get to do the dollar
dance as we had requested and he didn't play several
songs we requested. The few (meaning maybe 2)
announcements he did, no one could understand what he
said because he mumbled. My husband and I were so
embarrassed by the poor service.

Not happy at all with the DJ we had from the
Company X. First of all I was given a different DJ 1 week
before my wedding and was not even told, no phone call,
email, nothing. Second, we could barely understand our DJ,
definitely a language barrier. Third, he announce all of the
wedding party wrong even AFTER giving him a detailed list of
the entire time line of the night and list of wedding party
in order as they would come in. Fourth, I kept having to
tell him to turn the music up because you could barely here
anything. Very disappointed, the entire process with Company
X was horrible. My entire wedding planning process went
smoothly except for this. I do not recommend Company X,
please stay away and avoid A LOT of stress.

We booked our
DJ service for our July 2008
wedding with Company X in the fall of 2007. We were
told 3 months prior to the event someone would call us and
match us up with 'The Perfect' DJ for us. One month prior to
the wedding date I found myself calling them to verify our
DJ and getting told they were so busy and would get back to
us. Three days prior to my wedding a DJ called and asked me
if I just booked my wedding DJ. He proceeded to tell me he
did not have any of our requests regarding music we wanted
played. I found myself in a panic because we sent our
requests to this company months prior to our event. I gave
him specific songs I wanted played for us and a particular
type of hispanic music I wanted played to pay tribute to my
hispanic culture at the wedding over the phone. He agreed
After I got off the phone with the DJ my fiancee
called Company X and that's when the run around began. My
wedding reception would have been perfect had I not hired a
DJ from Company X.
the DJ during the reception to try to help him pick music
for us and none of our music requests were met. I did not
get to hear the hispanic music artist I requested from
Company X and the DJ. The DJ just did not care and it was
very clear. At my reception when I complained to the DJ he
told me that is what I get for booking an online DJ service
and to call and complain to them. He also said 'I don't play
that kind of music on purpose' referring to the Kinito
Mendez (merengue) music I requested. I was embarrassed in
front of my guests by the music he was playing. When we
called to complain and resolve this issue with John the
supervisor of Company X this is what we got....
He is in a job interview he will call you back...and he
John himself has told me call back tomorrow I don't have
time to talk now,
When I call back the next day he repeats the process stating
the phones are ringing off the hook. This went on for
weeks..daily. We have given John our phone numbers and
followed their complaint procedure of sending them an e-mail
complaint and are still waiting for their call back. I have
been doing this run around with John from Company X since
July..it's almost September now. Please do not book any
service with this company. You will regret it if you do!
This company made it sound
like they were giving the best deal to use for a DJ and
videographer for our wedding. In the package we were
supposed to receive all these free extras such as glow
sticks and a light up ball for the dance floor. They
promised that we would have a huge part in selecting our DJ
and if we did not like him or her we would get to choose
another one from their large variety of venders.
A few months before our wedding we found out that they don't
assign DJs until a month before the wedding and we do not
get to choose or meet them. Then three weeks before we did
not hear from anyone and when we called they said it has not
been assigned yet. Two weeks before it was not assigned and
I was told they never assign it that earlier!?!? Two days
before the event after calling the company five times I
finally got a call first from the DJ who just received our
song list that day and our phone number. The next day our
At our event not only did our DJ not even know he was
supposed to bring glow sticks and a dance globe, but he had
a HORRIBLE sound system and was rude to my guests. He told
me my sister was a b****. He took shots at the bar after the
event and turned the music off five minutes too early so the
facility had to turn on their stereo. He didn't play all
songs from my list - he played out dated songs that we
didn't want. He forgot to play the song I requested during
my bouquet toss.
The worst part about it is that Company X doesn't care. I
tried to call and tell somebody but they just brushed me
off. They just want money. They don't care how their results
are. This DJ was horrible and the scary thing is that he
will probably be at many other weddings doing the same
This letter is to file a
complaint for the DJ service my wife and I recently received
at our wedding from your 'DJ Brian' in Portland Oregon. Our
wedding was on Saturday, June 7th, 2008 at the Columbia
County Fairgrounds. I have enclosed/attached a picture of
Brian since I don't have his last name.
I called Company X based on
your marketing on the internet and received good service
from Jesse when booking our event over the phone. We
received your packet in the mail with the song list, and a
wonderful DVD showing what looked like a great DJ/Video
company. We were so excited, but what a complete let down
and wedding nightmare! In the booking process we asked for
an 'Interactive' DJ and 'Brian' was so far from that. He
cued up 4 or 5 songs in the laptop and then sat on his phone
texting a good majority of the time. He was also supposed to
go around to the tables while our guests ate for song
requests and that didn't happen either.
I got a call from Brian the week before our wedding to go
over a few things -- everything sounded great. Then he said
he needed a table to set his equipment on. OK, I'm a DJ as
well and I guess my expectations were a little high but I
bring in all equipment needed to get the job done. The
client has paid and you are supposed to provide the service
agreed upon. My mother has already paid you guys $585.00 in
full for your services. I expect you to bring all the
equipment including tables to the event.
We agreed to provide the table because we had so many other
things to worry about and that's the last thing we needed to
worry about¦ When Brian arrived he set up his laptop,
and tiny little light bar that looked nothing like what was
in the DVD. With the equipment used anybody could be a DJ.
The microphone and speakers were horrible -- we could not
understand at all what he was saying to the crowd when he
talked, which was very little, and I had to tell him when to
do so. The schedule was set on paper before the wedding
began and that's what we thought would happen -- the DJ
would be the 'interactive' MC of our wedding. Well there was
no inter-action with the crowd, he got nobody on the dance
floor, and when we did the toast nobody could hear what we
Lots of our
guests left early because your 'interactive DJ' was doing
nothing to get the crowd excited about our special day¦ So I
had Brian leave early as well so we wouldn't have to pay any
more money for such a horrible service. I usually am a
pretty quiet person when it comes to complaining, but you
ruined the most memorable day of our lives!
I expected a much higher level of service from your company.
You have a great marketing department but that's about it,
I'm sorry to say. I do have a lawyer and will utilize him if
need be. I hope this can be resolved in a civil manner. Even
then, it will not change the memories of our special day.
I hope in the future you go to an event or two to see how
things go with a new or seasoned DJ before you let him/her
represent your company the way 'Brian' did yours.
Ty & kelly
Company X to provide DJ service for my wedding ceremony and
reception. I paid for extra's including extra set up fee's,
cordless mic fee, karaoke, travel. I was promised a
profession DJ in formal tuxedo.
My DJ assured me on several occasions a few days prior to
the wedding he had a tux, he had all the music I wanted, he
had my line up in order. NO WORRIES, he had it all in
The day of the event he was late. My ceremony, which was
outside, started late because of him. Because we started
late we were forced to have the processional in torrential
rain. The line up was screwed up because I (the bride)
arrived in the gazebo, before the rest of my wedding party,
in silence. Apparently the DJ didn't think music was
necessary? I don't know. I had to TELL him to play
something, and he played the processional music as an
interlude. My processional was screwed up. OH, yeah, he was
wearing shorts and a tee shirt, not the promised Tux.
The ceremony was a disaster, and the reception was almost as
bad. He announced all the wrong names, didn't have the right
music, and went around asking my guests if they would mind
going to the store for him to get batteries. I paid extra
for the Karaoke... I never got the karaoke, he broke the
machine and then tried to blame it on my son. Thank God
another guest witnessed it, and told him my son didn't have
anything to do with his machine being broken.
All of you who have been to a polish wedding know what the
'chicken Dance' is. He didn't even have that song. My best
man had to leave the reception and get me the sound track.
The DJ company has a 100% money back guarantee. I cant even
get money back for the actual services not rendered. I spoke
with the company several times and have gotten absolutely NO
WHERE. I have filed a complaint with the Better Business
Bureau and currently am looking to file in small claims.
East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania
Company X on a web search where an ad came up for $495 disc
jockey any event. So I called and they took my information
and sent me a very impressive package in the mail.
As I talked with them I was impressed by their 'experience'
and how many events they had done. They led me to believe
that they were located in Las Vegas (I found out later that
they are not). I ended up booking them based on price and
what turned out to be lies about their reputation. A week
before my wedding I called them and wanted to talk to my dj
and the person stammered and I felt like maybe they didn't
have a dj for me or something. They assured me I had a DJ
and he would call me by Thursday (2 days before).
Thursday came and no call so i started looking on the
internet and saw all the complaints here and got scared. I
called a couple other djs and found one that was available
and who agreed to match their price in order to help/save
me. One of these djs had worked with Company X before and
explained to me how they work. Pretty much, Company X is a
booking company and has no control over the djs. They have
several people in each city and put out a 'bid' for each
event - the cheapest bid gets the job. Turns out Company X
pays as little as $100 to local 'djs' to do their events for
them, now what kind of quality dj would you get for
that!?!??!? Company X says their djs have lots of experience
but I have to think that for $100 they can't have that much
experience! He also sent me a copy of the email that Company
X sends out to the djs in each town, this is a direct
quote:' Please indicate your top picks for this weekend and
the price you are willing to do the event for, we will
respond back with a confirmation email and t he price for
the show. (NOTE: there will be multiple bids for each show
and we will choose the one with the best cost)' So I ended
up booking this new local dj and cancelling Company X, I
lost my deposit but i think that was better than not having
Company X does hard-sell tactics, they called me every day,
they have pretty mailers but they use cheap local djs who
are the cheapest price for them. you never know how much
experience they have and you are lucky if they even show up.
Las Vegas, Nevada
We used Company X for our
wedding ceremony and reception in September 2007. I was very
pleased with how nice they all were up until about 2 weeks
before the wedding.
About a month before the wedding I had sent a list of songs
I wanted played during the ceremony and reception as well as
a list of 'must play' songs that I wanted played during the
reception. I included names of every one in the bridal party
for the announcements. I had also requested that no songs
with profanity played since we would have a lot of children
in attendance. I had also asked that the DJ not take any
requests from children b/c I did not want the entire
reception to be filled with high school music or Hannah
Montana songs !!!
About a week before the wedding a man who said was our DJ
called to go over my requests. He was very rude. He said he
had not heard of half of the songs I had listed for the
ceremony and reception. But he would look them up and if he
had trouble finding them he would call me back. I never
heard from him again.
The day of the wedding my family was setting up while I was
at the hair salon. My brother called me and asked for the
DJ's phone# so that he could call him and see if they were
able to hook up a laptop to his sound system so we could
show a picture slideshow that my mom had made. The DJ tells
him that he is not doing our wedding b/c she cancelled!!!
I called the office in a panic and was told my Dustin that
he was in fact not my DJ anymore b/c he had a 'family
emergency' and a new DJ was assigned to my wedding. I asked
if he was given all of the info for the wedding that
included the songs for the ceremony, bridal party
announcement, cake cutting and first dance. As well as the
songs that I wanted played at the reception. He assured me
that the new DJ was given all of that a few days ago and I
had nothing to worry about.
My wedding was to start at 5:30pm and I was told the DJ
would be there to set up at 4:30. We were having our
pictures taken at a different location so 2 of my moms
friends stayed at the venue to finish setting up and to be
there to let the DJ in. We arrived back at the venue at
5:00pm and the DJ was just setting up as guests were
My mom went to the DJ and asked if he was given the list of
the songs and his reply was 'NO, I was just assigned this
wedding this morning' !!
Luckily my mom had a CD with the songs for the ceremony in
her car so she had to go out in the rain to get them from
her car for him !! The mother of the bride out in the rain
When it came time for the ceremony to start and the mothers
were seated my mom had to get up and tell the DJ when to
start and stop the songs b/c he had no idea what he was
doing. My flowergirl was very shy and was told what to do
and had practiced and knew her cue by what song was playing.
When it came her turn to go out he stopped the song she knew
to walk to and started playing 'here comes the bride' My mom
had to get out of her seat and walk her by the hand down the
aisle. She was embarrassed b/c she thought she had done
something wrong. By the time I came out the song was over
and I walked down the aisle to nothing !!
After the ceremony we were waiting for the guests to be
seated so the bridal party could be announced my mom again
went to him told him he could start the announcements in
about 5 minutes. He told her he did not know any of our
names. Not even the bride and groom !! She had to write down
everyone's names and give it to him. He again played the
wrong song for the announcement and the cake cutting.
Before I even sat down to eat I went and talked to him to
find out what was going on. He said he was never given the
list of songs that I had sent in and he was just called this
morning !! The last thing he had to do was the first dance
and the dollar dance. It was supposed to be 'Me and You' by
Kenny Chesney. He said he had that song and he would take
care of it.
When it came time for the first dance he played 'You and Me'
by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band !!! I looked at him while my
husband were standing in the middle of the dance floor and
said 'that's not it' He said 'I don't have it !!'
So he found another Kenny Chesney song !! Another moment
ruined that we will never get back.
We also wanted to do the dollar dance and everything was
explained in the list that I had sent prior to the wedding.
My bridesmaid had to go and get the microphone from him and
announce the dollar dance and get people up to do it !!
I had asked prior to the wedding to not have any songs with
profanity played and several times myself or my mom had to
tell him to stop playing a song b/c of profanity.
I called 'Company X' the Monday after the wedding and spoke
to Rob. He apologized for everything said that it was
definitely their fault and he would take care of everything.
He asked me to send an email to him detailing everything
that happened so that he could forward it to his boss 'Jim'.
He said it would take about a week to go through the proper
people and he would call me back.
I have yet to receive a phone call from anyone at that
company. The only time they called me was when the were
requesting payment. I called every day for months. I was
told that I would be getting a full refund by Rob the week
before Christmas. Nothing ever came. I called back and was
told by Rob that he thought someone else had taken care of
it and apologized again he said he was going to send me a
check for $200. I asked what happened to the 'full refund' I
was promised. He said that he did not have the authority to
do that and 'Jim' would call me the following day to discuss
refunding me the remaining balance of $405. I have yet to
receive a phone call and do still call about every other
week but I am always told that they are in a meeting, out of
the office etc. etc. etc.
I was appalled to see all of the 'bad reports' on this
company and wished I had found this out before the wedding.
I can not believe that this company is still in business!!!
I feel that my entire wedding was ruined because we lost out
on all of those memorable moments and all I remember is how
it was not what I wanted !!
The company by
the name of 'Company X' not only produces terrible wedding
videos, they also have DJ's that don't show up at your
My wife and I hired 'Company X'. We hired this company to DJ
our wedding reception but no one ever showed up.
Imagine that...your wedding day with no DJ. We called the
company, but no one answered, we left an urgent message, but
no one called. After the reception, I called them, and
called, and called, and called.
After many, many calls, I finally received a return call
from the owner who said that the dj'got sick' that day and
forgot to call in for a replacement. After I called the BBB,
I was made aware that many other people had experienced the
same problems that we did.
It is appalling to know that this company is still in
The owner and his 'sham' companies (he owns another company
by the name of 'Company Y) should not be allowed to be in
business, they take people's money, promise them the best
service, and not only don't deliver on their promises...they
under-deliver and leave a bad lasting impression on a day
that means so much to so many people.
DO NOT HIRE COMPANY X
I booked Company X for my
wedding over 6 months in advance. They used high pressure
sales tactics to get me to secure them as the DJ service. As
my date came closer I became very worried because I had not
heard anything from them. I had paid in full 3 months prior
to the event, filled out their 'song book' and done
everything I could in advance.
2 months prior to the event I began calling their 1-800
number every week to try and get some answers because they
will not respond to any emails. Every time I got someone on
the phone that gave me the run around. They only had excuses
about how 'it was not their department' or 'they would have
some one call back'. Nobody ever called and nobody could
tell me who my DJ was for the event.
I paid over 500 hundred dollars and they could not tell me
who the DJ was for my wedding reception. One month prior I
began calling a few times a week and still nobody could tell
me who my DJ was for the event. They claimed that I would
hear from the DJ 2 weeks prior to the event.
Two weeks prior to the event nobody called. I had to keep
calling them over and over. They got an attitude and told me
that I would not get a call from the DJ until 1 week prior
to the event. I had put in over 50 calls to these people
with no response for 6 months. 5 days before my wedding I
got a call from somebody from CompanyX who gave me a first
name only of the DJ who was going to be at my wedding
The wedding day came and the DJ actually showed up. However,
this guy never got a copy of the 'song book' with all of our
information and songs we wanted. He barely spoke 2 words in
5 hours. He played crap for songs and had a very poor
2 hours after my reception began I felt my guests were so
bored with the music they decided to leave. This was a very
expensive reception and I had a POS for a DJ. This company
is absolutely useless! Do not waste your time or money with
these people! I learned my lesson the hard way with these
Virginia Beach, Virginia
My Husband and I were
searching for a local dj in the Pittsburgh area for our May
26 wedding After passing up many reputable agencies due to
price, I came across the website for 'CompanyX' Their prices
were AMAZING. Now I know why. When I first called to book
their services, they were very nice and helpful. I spoke to
'Jeremy'. He sent me all the necessary paperwork to fill out
very quickly. He also made sure I gave him a deposit that
day. He told me at that time, (June 2006) that we were all
booked and ready to go for our May 2007 wedding, all they
needed was the paperwork and the FINAL PAYMENT by February
2007. Once received, they would call me. Well, we made sure
all the paperwork was filled out and payment was sent
I did not receive any calls from them until the beginning of
April. I had already attempted to call them 3 times prior
myself, to request a copy of my signed contract and a
receipt for my final payment. I did not receive those
either. My mother had to send an email from work threatening
to sue before they agreed to fax the information I had
In addition, my mom called on almost a weekly basis to talk
to the DJ. No answer! When they finally did call back, the
second week of April, 'Carrie' spoke to my mom and advised
her that the DJ would be calling me by no later than 6pm
that very evening. He never called. So we called again the
next day. 'Carrie' told us the same thing again. He never
called. This went on and on for a month. Finally, after
daily calls to the company being either unanswered or not
returned, my mom called and spoke with 'Jim' who was said to
be the 'Operations' Manager' who stated that the DJ would
not call us until 2 weeks prior.
Finally, the DJ, 'Mark' called me on the Wednesday before my
wedding to tell me that he was out of town and never
received any of our messages. How convenient. We went over
the contract and music list, of which I had considerable
changes in music selections, announcements and start times.
He agreed on all changes. To be safe, I also gave a copy of
all updates to our wedding coordinator at the reception hall
to give 'Mark' to make sure he had all the updated
information. He received the updates from the coordinator
because he had them in his hand when he came to meet me at
the reception. So my mother and I had the pleasure of
stressing all day long as to weather or not the DJ was even
going to show up!!
First off, according to our contract, he was supposed to be
dressed in a tuxedo. That was a must, since our reception
was formal. He came in a pair of black 'Dockers' and a white
polo type shirt.
Further, he stated his partner could not make it so he
brought his wife who dressed in blue jeans and a dirty tank
Second, he and I went over the formalities and the
introductions on the phone a few days prior and also in the
hospitality room at the reception hall as well. His start
time was 5pm. He came to me at 540 pm to ask what time he
was supposed to start. Therefore, the first 40 mins of
cocktail hour had NO music.
Third, when he was announcing our bridal party in, he
introduced the wrong people. That was very embarrassing for
myself and for the people who were introduced.
Fourth, When we began dinner, he was supposed to play a Jazz
Selection, by selection, meaning multiple different artists.
He played an entire Kenny G. cd, just so he could eat
uninterrupted. I don't even like Kenny G!
Further, when the time came to do the special dances, we had
2 first dance songs, and 2 bridal party songs. He skipped
the bridal party songs and went straight to the
Father/Daughter Dance! I was horrified!
He was very lax, unprofessional, slovenly and most of all
uninterested in what he was being PAID to do. We requested
an 'enthusiastic' DJ, he was lazy and and rude. I think he
confused 'funny' with 'sarcastic smart ass'.
He acted as though he did not want to be there and he read
the introductions and such verbatim from the paper I had
Lastly, I was promised a mirror ball with my package, I did
not receive it and he had a TIPS jar out on his table. How
Besides having a good sound system, he was a joke. The whole
company was a joke. I could have made a few 'mix-cd's' to
play and that would have been a better choice.
I recently got married and I
am VERY DISAPPOINTED with the DJ services I received from a
company named Company X
I found my DJ over the internet. The package they sent to my
home was impressive, blew all others out of the water. So, I
decided to go with 'Company X'. I paid them in full for my
DJ service-- 13 months before my wedding.
I periodically called Company X to inquire about my services
and asked when I should start making arrangements with my
DJ. I was told it was not necessary to speak with these
persons until one month before the wedding. I began calling
one month before the wedding and continued to hear the same
story---everything is in order, we will have the DJ get a
hold of you tomorrow. Tomorrow would come and no call. The
week of the wedding I was being told I will get a call in 15
minutes from the DJ and still no calls.
THE DAY OF MY WEDDING:
I had no idea if I would have a DJ at my wedding!!!! I got a
call from my fiance' at 11:00am (my wedding was at 3pm)
explaining that the DJ just called him. The DJ explained
that he did not have three very important songs, one of
which was the music for the father of the bride dance. All
three songs were requested, in writing, to Company X 13
months prior to the wedding date.
The DJ refused to attempt to get these songs, stating he had
more important things to get done before my 5pm reception.
To top this, he informed me that his services were requested
the night before at 10PM by Scott at Company X. (did I
mention that I Booked this DJ 13 months in advance??!!)
It has been 80 days since my wedding and I have not received
compensation for the LACK of quality services from Company
X. I have been in contact with the owner since September 25
and he continues to promise me compensation. Each time I
call he informs me of the incompetent staff he had working
for him, which he had to fire because they did this very
same thing to other customers. I can only feel grief for the
other customers that were wronged,
