Tammy was great to work with! We had a “Through the Decades” dance and it was a hit! We’re at a 55 and over park in Bradenton and it was like she knew exactly what we wanted! Highly recommend DJ Littlebit! We look forward to working with her again next year!Feb 9, 2018Verified
MC, coordinator, Dj! What a fantastic job! Only downside was the wedding ceremony went by so fast! Very professional! Great music!Dec 2, 2015Verified
Tammy was very organized and fun to work with! The highlights of the evening was the newlywed game. Everyone said it was a fun and entertaining twist for a wedding. At the end of the night she had everyone come to the dance floor for the final song which was great! Thank you DJ Littlebit for an awesome evening!Oct 13, 2014Verified
My husband and I hired DJ Littlebit for our wedding and she was absolutely wonderful. She is professional, well organized and extremely helpful, I loved her and would highly recommend her for any special occasion.May 14, 2014Verified
Tammy Wallingsford (aka "DJ Littlebit") did our April 25th, 2015 wedding and we were disappointed with her and her services. Rather than go into a long narrative, we have included some bullet points as follows: 1.) She indicated, at our initial meeting, that she would handle everything in terms of coordinating events (i.e. father-daughter dance, cake cutting etc.) and even rejected our printed timeline, yet we had to continually prompt her to keep things moving. 2.) She asked us to compile a list of special songs that we wanted played at our reception-which we spent a lot of time on-and then only played a few of them despite having ample time to do so. 3.) She indicated that she didn't take breaks, which we wouldn't have minded if she was truthful about it, yet she stepped outside a lot to smoke and came back in reeking of cigarettes. 4.) She hounded us for her final payment at the craziest time of the day-just before the ceremony when all vendors (caterers, florist etc.) needed a few minutes of our time. We understand wanting to get paid, but she literally asked us and less than five minutes later asked again. Not sure if she thought we were going to run away or what? 5.) We served a buffet style dinner and asked if she would announce table numbers with her microphone to avoid a dinner line back up, but instead she went around to each table and quickly lost control of it. Again, at our initial meeting she said that this was something she would handle and not to worry about. 6.) She set up her equipment in a spot where she could not see the head table after we had gone to great lengths to find her the perfect spot and one that we even took pictures of beforehand so she could plan accordingly. To make matters worse, at one point she announced over the microphone "I can't see the bride and groom from where I am." No kidding. BOTTOM LINE: We made it very easy for DJ Littlebit by being very organized, but rather than listen to us, she sat back and told us to leave everything to her. Well, she promised one thing and delivered another and unless she takes this feedback and uses it to improve her services, we could not in good faith recommend her to future brides and grooms.May 17, 2015VerifiedDJ Littlebit's reply
Michele...thank you for your comments...please consider the following: I have to admit that I was a little taken aback by your email since, when I left, I asked if it was all that you wanted it to be and you told me yes, you had a great time and that you even wanted me to DJ your daughter's Sweet 16...so upon seeing this email, I was speechless at first. I would like to address a few points, if I may. I played all but 3 of your favorite requests...some were played during dinner and others were played during dancing and I even played the requests your guests asked for. Indeed, Scott did come to me to ask me to do the others events but he said it was because your guests were beginning to leave and that was at about 7:30 when we were scheduled for another hour which is why I had not pushed the other events...your guests were having a good time dancing and had sat for quite a while while waiting for your pictures to be done and the greeting of the tables...I think you may remember me coming to you and asking how much longer it would be for you and Scott to finish the greetings at the tables and commented that the reception was lagging. The last time I came to Scott...he asked for 15 more minutes so of course, I do as the bride and groom ask me. Your guests were leaving and unfortunately, I guess I made the mis-call of not doing the honeymoon dance. I just felt as if there were not many guests remaining and the honeymoon dance would not have been as you hoped and did not want to disappoint you with no one coming to dance for the honeymoon dance. I did, of course, call the tables individually...not on the microphone but I went to each table personally to invite them to go through the buffet line. Some tables may not have gone as soon as I asked them to which is probably why the buffet line became so long...that is not an uncommon thing to happen as I can invite them but can't make them go as soon as I invite them. When it comes to breaks, I did not take any breaks as a band would...there was not a lack of music...music was playing at all times...that is what is meant by no breaks. I did not even eat any dinner from the buffet line...you may have noticed me eating peanuts to sustain my appetite as to not be a bother to anyone. Had a mention of the request for no smoking had been made, I would certainly have followed your wishes and not smoked during your event. My agreement does say that final payment is due upon setup, not at the end of the event. Over the years, this has become a necessity as there have been events where clients have gotten intoxicated and been difficult to get paid, did not bring the final payment, etc. which left me with having to go through the unfortunate situation of trying to get paid for the work that I performed. As you saw from your event, a 4-hour event is really almost an 8 hour day for me so I really work hard for what I give and try to give 110%....at reasonable rates. Please remember, the outline I prepared was provided to all of your vendors...photographer and banquet staff so that we were all on the same page throughout the night. I was in constant communication with the banquet staff to be sure that the champagne was poured before the toasts were done, that the buffet was ready before I announced it and invited you and Scott to go through and then walked to each table to individually invite your guests to go through, to be sure the photographer knew when we were getting ready to do events so that he was prepared, etc. I am disheartened that after the event, you felt as though you needed to take the time to write the email to me that you did...I left that night with a feeling that you and Scott were very happy with the event and the good comments you gave to me made me feel as though I had made your day special.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are inline with most DJs in the area. With 110% service, you get above and beyond your expectations for your wedding, party or corporate event...you deserve it!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?An initial conversation by phone is best so that I can learn how I can help to make your wedding/event a success for you and how we can make that that day stand out as a special memory for you. I know that text is way of communicating in this day and age (and you are welcome to text anytime) but the personal touch is always best when first beginning our conversation.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a professional DJ who belongs to a professional DJ service where I obtain my music...all genres from oldies to Top 40, Latin, Country, etc. Having the experience of being a part of many weddings and parties throughout the years allows me to be able to have the skills to run your wedding/event, play the party music (and slow) and MC to let your guests know what is going to be happening and all of this makes your wedding/event a special memory and ensures that it will run smoothly so that you can relax and enjoy along with your guests.
