Found DJ Fanch for my wedding through thumbtack, he didn't live in my city, and I paid him in full, so it could have ended poorly. The opposite was true. He FaceTimed us multiple times to make sure he knew what we wanted. His selection of songs was huge, but he also downloaded anything we wanted that he didn't have, and he made sure to have internet access to take any and all requests that night. He played my Spotify playlist at dinner that I wanted, even though he usually plays his own music, and he stuck to the giant list of songs that I wanted him to play that night. Our dance floor was packed with people the entire night from ages 3-90, which is exactly what we wanted. We've gotten multiple compliments about our music and dance since the wedding, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. I could go on for days with good things to say, but the biggest pro to hiring him was how accommodating he was to make sure our day was exactly how we wanted it to be. There were many vendors we went through that I cannot say the same for. Hire him! You won't regret it.

Lisa was great. She played a great selection of music for the crowd that was there. She was willing to participate in announcing winners in our raffle and interacted well with others. We will be using her services in the future.

Chris was willing to take songs that we offered and work them into what he was going to play. Sometimes DJs aren't willing to do that

DnA Music Entertainment provided music for our wedding reception. They were great at announcing what was going on but letting people enjoy the music the rest of the time. The dance floor was full almost the whole night! When dinner ran long, they suggested some changes to the schedule to get the party going quickly. They followed our 'play' and 'no play' lists well and all had a great time! Thanks!

I would highly recommend Isaac! He DJ'd my wedding at the beginning of June and did an amazing job, kept the music going, played the songs we asked for , kept out the songs we didn't want. Great people skills! Easy to work with! We got lots of complements from guest on how fun and easy going he is and what a great entertainer he is. If we ever have an event where we need a DJ again we wont hesitate to call him again. Thank you so much!!

They did a great job! Everyone was pleased with the music that was played. Even my 70 year old grandma loved the DJ! Worth every penny! We also paid a little extra for glow stick necklaces and bracelets and all of the kids there loved those too!

I photographed a wedding 7/17/2015 where Michael Scott of Puttin' on the Hitz was the DJ. Audio was excellent, mics were all clear and audible, music played with no interruptions, and the dance floor was packed all night. Even more importantly, Michael was charismatic and genuine in his interactions. His lighting was tasteful and unobtrusive, but still added to the ambiance of the the party. I see lots of DJs and he is among the best.

Andy was a little late getting to the wedding and that cut into share time with what we wanted. But other than that he did a wonderful job!
