    Robert and his wife worked at our wedding and we had a wonderful time. Robert is accommodating to any situation you throw at him and he always reminds you that he will do whatever you need to make your day perfect. He has some fun ideas of his own to add to the day to make it extra special but if any of them don't sound like your cup of tea, he respects that too. They kept the party going all day long and us and our guests had the time of our lives dancing to some classics they played once we started dancing. The system to input songs that Robert uses online is very user friendly and such a neat way to customize the music for your special day, even up to a couple days before the event! I would definitely reccomend Music By Robert to anyone who wants an amazing experience and would be more than willing to personally talk to anyone who is tentative about picking the perfect DJ for their special day.

    A big thumbs up to Robert as our DJ!
    Robert was our DJ for my husbands 60th birthday party. He was prompt on arrival and set-up. Robert provided the perfect mix of music for our party that spanned in ages from teens to 70's. Everyone enjoyed the mix and variety Robert offered. I was given many compliments on my DJ choice. Robert really helped to get the party started and kept it moving. You can tell he has many years of experience in getting people to interact at events. I will look to Robert again for any future DJ needs that I may have. I give him a big thumbs up and recommend selecting Robert for your event! You can book him with confidence that he will represent you and your event with class and professionalism. Thank you Robert for helping to make our evening a huge success!

    Robert and his wife are awesome!
    Robert and his wife were great. They got our wedding going and made it fun. Everyone loved the music. His wife helped keep things organized even after having to deal with my rude wedding coordinator... something I feel horrible about! Robert also has state of the art equipment and microphones that worked perfectly during our ceremony. I would highly recommend hiring them for you wedding or event. Thank you so much for making our day special!

    Robert & Jessica, you two are both such sweethearts. Jared & I are so happy that we picked you. Everyone said that you were the best DJ. So we gave them your info :) thanks for coming in so early and playing music before the ceremony for us. Your promises you made weren't broken, so we'd recommend you & Jessica to everyone.

    I was a Marriage Officiant at a Wedding that Robert and his wife DJ'd yesterday, here in Reno, Nevada. They did a fantastic job for this beautiful couple. His interaction with the couple was so sweet. The music was awesome when doing the ceremony he hooked me up to an amazing microphone, so that when I spoke and had no feedback. He and his wife Jessica were dressed appropriately for the occasion. They use top end equipment and were very social with everybody the interfaced with. I would definitely recommend him for your upcoming wedding. Lola Spencer-Marriage Officiant 775-470-0930 Email. Idonevadaweddings@yahoo.com

    DJ Robert and his lovely wife did an amazing job at our wedding. The transitions from song to song were seamless. They also gave great direction on when to do each each event and in telling guests what was happening. Robert also surprised the groom and I with a special moment where he had us speak in front of everyone how we were feeling at that moment. I could not think of a better DJ for a wedding!

    My son's wedding coordinator dropped the ball in so many places. Robert and his wife Jessica's quick thinking and expertise in weddings really saved the whole event. They both went above and beyond and I will always be grateful.
  • Paul G. May 30, 2016
    Robert was amazing. He was polite, friendly and professional. He made our wedding go so smoothly and added some special touches that really touched us, our family and all the guests. He was just the right amount D.J. and master of ceremonies without being intrusive or too much. I can't say enough good things about him and his lovely wife, Jessica (who assisted him with details and to help everything go perfectly). The wedding party, family and friends were all impressed. I highly recommend him to anyone.

    Robert was there early to set up and was very professional through out the whole wedding. We had trouble during the wedding with some equipment and Robert was happy to help us out, he did the wedding also, even though he was there for just the reception. We were very pleased with him and his wife. Robert we really appreciate all your help during the wedding and reception even with the slow start. I think everyone really enjoyed the music. Again thanks so much for all you help...great DJ

    Robert and his lovely wife Jessica DJ'd our wedding vow renewal/anniversary party last weekend. We could not have been happier with the experience. He was very easy to reach during the weeks and days before the party, but even better, his performance at the party was fantastic! He had a huge variety of music and was very good about remembering my likes and dislikes. I had so many of our guests telling me how great the music was! He was also really good about announcements, his equipment (portable microphone, etc) was top notch. Would recommend him without reservation!!! Thank you Robert and Jessica for helping create a once in a lifetime memory :)

    Robert delivered another delightful evening as the DJ at The White House last week. I am always pleased when I see that he has been hired by one of our couples - his work is wonderful and he is thoroughly professional in every aspect. Everyone had a delightful time and were dancing right up to the end of the evening. Highly recommended!

    Let me start with by every sense of the word, Robert did the job asked, He showed up on time with the right stuff. He did however have a few different things happen that changed our outlook. First, his system was put in direct sunlight and he didn't initially have a cooling system set up, so it did overheat and there was a long break, but this long break was welcome after hearing the same songs looped multiple times (at a truck show, when asked to play a mix of rap, country, classic rock, we got at least "lips taste like sangria" played 4 times). Lastly, he made one of our female customer service reps uncomfortable as he tried to sell his services for a future "wedding" by selling her on his "speciality, for the garter dance, he makes them dance for it, and its something really good to see". Robert shows up, does the job, and spectators had a good time...but after a few simple requests were not met, such as "don't play techno stuff", and after making a employee feel uncomfortable, We will no longer be using his services in the area.
    Robert D. May 29, 2015

    I am sorry and very surprised you gave me such a low rating. Especially after stating "Let me start with by every sense of the word, Robert did the job asked, He showed up on time with the right stuff" and "Robert shows up, does the job and spectators had a good time" On the so called issues my equipment was not setup in direct sunlight. I was under one of canopies of the Dynaflex Products that Andrew works for. The issue didn't happen till the second day and very late in the afternoon when the sun shifted. The system was down less that five minutes. I started it back up and Andrew told me to take a break that I had been working very hard. I thank him and kept the music going. I played a huge mix of over twenty hours of music of county, classic rock, top 40 and what clean rap I could find. I do not do dirty explicit music especially where there is very young children walking around and never played any techno stuff and was never asked not to. For claiming I played the song Sangria fours times, that is just wrong. I played it twice once on Friday and once on Saturday. I use it when I first setup before my scheduled time starts to test my equipment. As for making his lady friend uncomfortable by suggesting that a groom dance at his wedding and having that effect on her is unheard of to me. I have done over 1,000 weddings and never had a response like that. In fact one of the Vendors came up to me to inquire about having me do their wedding and stated they were very impressed with the sound and music choices. Having the groom dance at his wedding impressed them and did not make them uncomfortable at all. I played several requests from spectators, vendors and exhibitors and received many compliments on the music. Now for issues I had with Andrew. First he was very hard to get hold of and get answers to important questions. If fact I hadn't heard from him or Dynaflex Products for a few weeks until he called me two days before the event telling me I would be working from 2:00 P.M to 9:00 P.M on Friday and 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M on Saturday which was a total of at least nine hours more than what I originally bid on and agreed to. Here is what was on the Thumbtack request "Message Friday night has a small event for 2-3 hours, and saturday will be an all day event. When Date: Sat May 23 2015 Time: 10:30am Length: 8-10 hours" I showed up early both days and gave them over 20 hours of non stop music without a break on both days. On Friday when I showed up and according to the contract I was to be paid. I had to chase Andrew down and ask him about payment. To which I got the old tired "We forgot to bring the checkbook and will try and bring it tomorrow." I find it very hard to believe a company as large as Dynaplex Products would allow an employee run around with the "Checkbook" Corporate work that I have done have always had a professional company check for me and always send to me ahead of the event. Saturday came and I got the same answer and was told by Andrew that Dynaplex Products was a big company and that they would next day it to me on the first work day of the week and they wouldn't stiff me. He also told me to call him the morning of that day and remind him and give him the address again which was on the contract. I called and got a very rude response and said he had some comments he was going to put on Thumbtack. As of today May 29 I have not heard from him or Dynaflex Products nor have I gotten paid for my services. I find this an extremely un-business like practice as well as morally wrong. It is I who will not be doing business with Dynaflex Products in the future and I belong to several DJ associations and I will be sure to pass my experience and non payment along to them. I hope I don't have to take this further and Dynaflex Products will honor the contract and pay the $1,500.00 fee they owe.

    While I enjoyed meeting Robert and his wife, I was not entirely pleased with how he did my wedding. First and foremost, he cut both the first dance, father-daughter dance, and mother-son dance short after I specifically asked him not too. We were not pleased with his music selection during the dining hour, and we also thought he spoke on the mike too much. He and his wife, while very nice people, were very pushy about getting things done. He also did a generation dance (good thought) after I asked him not too, as my husband hates dancing. Nice people, but I would not book him again.
    Robert D. Jan 16, 2015

    I am sorry about the misunderstandings. I thought everything went real well as I got compliments from the parents would were very impressed with the generation dance as being a very good classy touch. The groom and I talked for quite a bit after the wedding and he said he was very happy. I kept the first dance, father daughter dance, and mother son dance to around 2 1/2 to three minutes because the groom did not like to dance. As for the music during the dining I placed music mostly consisting of songs that they requested on their page on my site. I always try to keep my use on the mic only what is required such announcing when I next event and a few time throughout for people to be sure and sign the guest book. This review I am thinking is from the maid of honor who booked me. Both the bride and groom at the end of the evening both came up and thanked myself and my wife for a wonderful evening. I also got several compliments from the parents as well as other guests. I am a bit confused as we try to make the evening as wonderful and memorable as possible. In over 1,000 wedding this is the first time I have gotten any comments like this. As you can tell from my other reviews. If these were the case I truly was never informed and I am sorry they felt this way.

    Robert was great, he was definitely what we needed to have a successful Sadie Hawkins dance! If you ever need a great dj with a great system that knows what he is doing choose him. Very personable

    He arrived plenty early for us to let him know where to set up and he had music going when guests arrived. He followed all our wishes and did an amazing job. Robert and his wife were amazing!! Well worth every penny. The music was cut to fit every situation perfectly. We had our wedding in southern Oregon and I have to say they were more than willing to travel. I would use them again for any party! Our wedding was complete with them as a part of it.

    Robert was our D.J. for our wedding on June 12, 2001. We met Robert at a Bridal Event at the Expo in Sacramento. We chose him out of all the others and even some that were referred, because of his personality, professionalism and friendliness. We made the right choice. He was not only all those things, but more. He personally went around and introduced himself to all the guests at each table and spoke with them personally. He had a few surprises for us, which gave us all a laugh and more great memories. He not only kept the music going with many requests, but played songs we had personally requested. He looked great and I received many compliments from my guests on how they really enjoyed him. In fact, someone watched from outside of the ballroom doors and called me later and asked about him as she was having a wedding too. I would and have highly recommended Robert. His wife attended and assisted with the music. She is not only very attractive, professional, but very friendly too. I also want to mention his website that he has for picking out music. It's fabulious and easy to go through. Really helped us in picking out music as we listened to the songs. Everything from the beginning to the end was perfect and he and his wife was a big part of making our wedding go smoothly.
