My sister just had a wedding and she said dealing with his company was a nightmare and it was low quality. Avoid.
INSANELY INCREDIBLE SERVICE
Kevin is a GENUINE CARING person who is the BEST at what he does - ignore the moaning people here
Do not use him for anything. Very rude when trying to deal with him. Had a misprint on our photobooth printouts and he said it wasn't his problem and we should have noticed it during our wedding. Do not recommend using him for anything. Extremely shady.
My husband & I were very lucky to find Kevin! He was a great help not only with music selection but also wedding reception etiquette. He had many well thought suggestions which we followed and the results were wonderful. He was fun and professional!The only issue was he does not charge enough. Based on his expertise, equipment, lights, time setting up and breaking down in addition to coming to the venue a week prior to make sure the table layout & dance floor layout were appropriate; he should have charge us 3 times what he did bill us. I would also recommend getting the photo lounge! Our families had a great time and his staff were excellent. The photo book was much better than the standard sign-in book. It is full of fun photos and well wishes, it is a wonderful keepsake. I wish I could do it all over again, Kevin made the reception more fun than I could have hoped for!
I could not be more satisfied with Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disk Jockeys! Right from the beginning Kevin proved to me they are not just DJ’s, but wedding professionals. I was really impressed with all the great advice he gave me, like how to set up the seating to better entertain our guest, and the right kind of lighting to use in our ballroom. I was even more impressed when I got the opportunity to use their online database to choose and browse songs! When I met with Tony, my DJ, he helped us set up a timeline of events to make the most of our reception time. At a lot of wedding I’ve been too, I find that the bride and groom are too busy to have fun at their reception. This was not the case for us. Tony took charge and kept everything running smoothly and on time. We did not have to worry about a thing! The dance floor was packed all night! I really loved his ability to read the crowd and play what pleased our guests, as well as accommodate or musical tastes and song requests. I would highly recommend Kevin Colangelo Premiere DJ’s for your special event!
We signed a contract with Kevin Colangelo Premiere DJ's to perform the DJ services at our daughter's wedding one year in advance of her wedding date. We paid him $1500 ($400 upfront and the remainder one month before the wedding) --- far the most charged by anyone we interviewed. We were willing to pay that price because of his claims of being an expert...., a 37-year-veteran in the business, DJing events with super stars, accuspot lighting, uplighting, 8 array sound system. We selected the 'Kevin Colangelo' package because it guaranteed that he, himself, would perform at our wedding.
His name was even typed into the contract!. We paid for 6 hours of play time.
3 weeks before the wedding, (one week after our final payment was made) when my daughter submitted her wedding planner to him, the hours he was asked to play became an issue with him!. We already paid him to play for 6 hours,. We changed that to 4-1/2 hours play time, with 1-1/2 hours 'wait' time|. Even though the math equals 6 hours either way, he told my daughter we would have to pay him $450 more:. When she complained because she couldn't understand why she owed him more money, he told her she could avoid the $450 extra fee by having a different DJ perform at her wedding. Our only other choice would have been to cancel the contract and lose our $400 deposit-- and then try to find another DJ 3 weeks before the wedding.
Under duress, we agreed to the alternate DJ. Kevin said we would specifically get a DJ named Ben. Kevin assured us that Ben had worked for him for many years and would have all of the same equipment. After we agreed to the change, Kevin admitted that he would not have been able to make our wedding anyway because he had booked another event the day before and would not have had the time to travel to our site for our wedding.
Subsequently, we tried to contact Kevin to arrange the lighting, names, etc, but he failed to respond.
Two days before the wedding, Showcase Sound called us (Showcase Sound is a DJ service from Rochester. We subsequently found out that Ben-- the alternate DJ -- is the CEO and owner of Showcase Sound.). They tell us that we would not be getting Ben, instead we would be getting two different DJ's -- neither of which are even old enough to claim to be veterans of the trade. With no time left, we run through the specifics with Showcase Sound.
At the wedding we found that we did not receive the accuspot lighting, nor the 8 array sound system clearly spelled out in the package information on his website.
After the wedding, we sent him a 'demand' letter asking for 1/2 of our money back for Breach of Contract.
After a series of e-mails back and forth, Kevin Colangelo admitted that he was not aware that Ben did not DJ our wedding. He also tried to tell us that he had the right to change DJ's because of the clause in his contract that states that he can change staff if circumstances arose that were beyond his control. We argued that he was the one that created the 'circumstances', so they were not beyond his control. Then he said we agreed to the changes so that altered the contract. We reminded him that we did NOT get the specific DJ we agreed to under duress.
We ended up taking him to court. We submitted documentation supporting every single one of our claims. This included the contract, his web page, all of our e-mail correspondence, pictures from the wedding, the demand letter, and quotes from two other DJ services that were comparable to what we ultimately received. The judge ruled in our favor. He awarded us $650. Kevin was given 30 days to pay or appeal. He did neither. It has now been over 5 months since the court ordered him to pay us. We still have not been paid. We now have to get the sheriff's department involved.
