About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I am personally involved in the planning process with the bride and groom or with the person planning the party. I make sure to guide them through all the details of planning the event and the event flows as planned. Then, I energize the party with a highly participative style where I get out on the floor and do the line dances and singalongs with the guests. I am told repeatedly that "we never see DJs get so involved..you are amazing"

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love leaving behind wonderful memories. People put all kinds of time and energy into ensuring a wedding or a special event comes off perfectly. I want to be the guy that takes all those plans and then gets people dancing all night so that they leave saying "that was awesome".

    I wish I could relive my day. Dj dr dance made our wedding day amazing. He was on point with absolutely everything. I had specific songs picked out for specific time frames and he didn't miss a beat. We seriously could not have picked a better DJ.

    Greg was a truly wonderful DJ for our wedding. He was laid back about all of our requests, yet very professional. I received several compliments from guests about the way he lead group dances (Cupid Shuffle, Cha Cha Slide, etc), and he was essential to the smooth flow of our reception. I highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for a quality DJ!

    Professional and Fun Wedding DJ!!
    My husband and I loved working with Greg as we planned our wedding and reception. Greg was always very professional and flexible meeting with us, even if it was via Skype or FaceTime which really meant a lot to us since we were doing all of our planning from out of state. Greg, was extremely patient with us as most of our song and music selection was not made until the week of the wedding. I did not have my father/daughter dance song decided until after the ceremony and before the reception, but Greg had everything cued for the dance. We loved that Greg was not a "pushy" DJ calling people out at their tables but rather, he simply encouraged the fun. One the most memorable things Greg did was play line dance songs, like Cupid Shuffle, and came out on the dance floor to lead everyone in the steps. Even more fun, my husband in Indian and while Greg played some of our requested Indian music, he even joined in, learning the basic dance steps. If you're looking for a fun, professional and reasonably priced DJ, Greg is your man! We couldn't have been happier in our choice!

    Great DJ for our gala!
    We are so glad we hired Dr. Dance for our Gala event! He did a great job of promoting our silent auction and raffle items and kept the crowd on the dance floor all night! He was professional and experienced and we got so many compliments from guests about him. We were also grateful for his generous charity discount. We would highly recommend him!

    DJ Dr. Dance doesn't disappoint!
    If you are looking for a fun, charismatic, supportive, encouraging, and friendly DJ then Dr. Dance is your guy! My husband and I left our meeting, prior to the wedding with him, feeling encouraged and supported rather than stressed. This was refreshing to us as planning a wedding can not be easy. He is accommodating and wants to make your dreams happen!! DJ Dr. Dance is incredible and you won't be disappointed.

    DJ Dr. Dance--book him now!
    Dr. Dance, Greg, was a fantastic addition to our wedding reception. He was responsive in our planning process, helpful with the timeline of the evening, open to our suggestions--and the night of the party: AWESOME! My friends are still talking about it--and not just about the party--but about Dr. Dance in particular. That's the sign of a great DJ--I'd recommend him for any event where you want to be sure people have a good time!

    Excellent Wedding DJ
    He did a great job helping us choose songs for the wedding- I wasn't sure exactly what would work. He was also flexible about set up location and has a portable little station that he could move if we needed him to. He did an all around fantastic job.

    Great, Fun, Family Friendly!
    I hired DJ Dr. Dance to DJ my teen zombie prom, a Halloween event at a public library. He was awesome! From playing all of the Halloween classics to getting a group of middle schoolers out on the floor and leading all of the trendy line dances to keeping the event flowing smoothly, he was great. I also appreciated him playing top hits that were appropriate given that we were partying in our library's community room. He kept it fun and family friendly! We'll be having him back next year for our community wide library Halloween fest for sure! He even wore a costume. I'd recommend him to anyone!

    Dr. Dance - Fantastic Wedding DJ
    Our wedding reception could not have gone better, and Greg AKA Dr. Dance deserves all of the credit. He excelled in every possible area. He was a fantastic MC that kept the night flowing smoothly without us having to worry about anything. The dance floor was packed the entire night with people of all ages. He played the perfect mix of current hits and classics that appealed to both the younger crowd (we and our friends are all mid-20's) and our older relatives/friends. He also did a great job mixing in our pre-determined list of songs with requests from other guests. Finally, he was extremely enjoyable and easy to work with throughout the preparation process. We met in person multiple times over the months leading up to our wedding, and he was always very responsive when we sent questions or changes leading up to our big day. Greg was all about tailoring the night to fit our preferences and personalities and then executed it to a T. Given all of this, plus the fact that his prices were extremely reasonable compared to other services we looked at, I plan to recommend him to all of our friends for years to come.

    Best DJ!
    Greg Binder is a phenomenal DJ. He has so much energy, plays all of the right music for a wedding crowd, and he will keep the entire dance floor full for you the entire night. If you are worried that something may not go right, or there might be a last minute glitch that no one even thought about in the middle of our reception, Greg will take care of it. He made our entire evening flow with so much energy and fun. If we did miss something throughout the night, no one would have even known. Greg spent a lot of time with me and my wife on prepping, and it did not even take long because of the timeline of events that he provides for you. He was a wonderful DJ, and he even gets out there and dances with your crowd! He made our guests laugh and dance the entire night without any issues. I would highly recommend Greg for weddings, and even other events. I never imagined our wedding to be as fun as it truly was that night. Thank you GREG! -Ashli and Alexandria Saba

    Greg was very easy to work with and helped keep the energy of our university event very high. Greg was on time for the event and brought everything he needed, including a table and cords for his DJ table. He also took recommendations for music all night, our students really enjoyed that! I had an outstanding experience!

    With Dr. Dance as DJ for our wedding reception, we had an amazing experience. He was so easy to work with from the very beginning. I came into our first meeting with an idea of how I wanted the reception to look... with introductions of the bridal party, instructions for the meal, and of course the dinner and dancing music. He affirmed all of my ideas and even helped me think of new things that could be fun. His attention to detail impressed me by the way he practiced the bridal party names so he pronounced them correctly and making sure everything was done right. He was such a natural during the whole reception and helped everything run smoothly. He was fun and energetic and really got the crowd involved throughout the entire night! I was especially impressed with his ability to get people out on the dance floor. I would highly recommend Dr. Dance for any party!

    Greg was incredible. His music selection seriously keeps everyone on the dance floor. My guests had so much fun that 2 of them hired him on the spot. There was no down time at all and 2 months after my wedding I still have wedding guests commenting on how much fun they had. Greg really watched the crowd to get a feel for what they wanted while still throwing in songs we wanted to hear. I could not be happier with his service.

    We have worked with Greg Binder (DJ Dr. Dance) for a variety of events, including fundraiser galas, 5K walk/runs, and even Daddy-Daughter Dances. We have always found him to be prompt, professional, and flexible. He considers it his personal responsibility to make sure our guests are having a great time. Thank you so much for the care, kindness, and enthusiasm you bring to our events!

    Our company hired Greg to DJ our show-floor booth reception, and he did a great job! He was professional, fun, and created a great playlist that worked perfectly for our event. He was easily reachable before the event, and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. We would definitely hire him again a recommend him for any event.

    He really pulled through for us. Our pianist was having amp problems and he mic'd her for us. He was an absolute blast to work with and we will absolutely use him for any other events we might need a dj for. Complete professional and very communicative. Worth every last penny. Will recommend to all our friends in the future.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
It takes lots of experience to become a skilled DJ. Dealing with different types of crowds, different styles of music, and becoming comfortable with leading people to party and have a good time. It takes an energetic personality. The wide variety of events that I do also keeps me "fresh." I keep up with all new music and dance trends by doing events for all age groups.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
If you are getting married or hosting a party or any other event, you want to have the best DJ available. Look for someone with a string of excellent reviews from clients and then have a meeting with the service provider to see if there is a good personality fit with yours. I am very easygoing and fun to work with. By combining personalized attention to detail, a professional approach and a highly interactive/energetic party style, I have an outstanding reputation for maximizing the fun and leaving wonderful party memories. Why are you hiring a DJ?...To have a great time. That's what I specialize in ...look at my reviews on my website. Now more than ever, the DJ business is ripe with a lot of people trying to make some "easy money" so a "proven veteran" is extremely valuable, especially at weddings and corporate parties where every detail matters. I have been a mobile Disc Jockey since 1982 and have experienced, venues, music, and people of all kinds and I continue to learn all the time. Most of my business is generated by referrals. I am constantly hired or rehired by people who have seen me DJ at an event around the Indianapolis area.
