Admittedly, my sister's wedding reception was probably an easy gig for him, but the fact that he went out of his way and downloaded a list of 40 Bollywood songs for the reception was outstanding. He also turned the music off when he saw that people were praying at the event, which I thought was very thoughtful. Would definitely hire again.

The best of the best!!! We went with DJ Repeatable after speaking to him and several other DJs. His professionalism drew me in. He wasn’t aggressive in trying to sell his services but instead asked several questions ahead of time to make some recommendations. Now to his actual performance!! He helped my husband and I to choose the perfect songs for the various parts of our wedding and made sure he was thoroughly prepared. And even though the ceremony, cocktails, and the reception were held in three different areas of the venue, he made the music flawless. All the guests at my wedding commented how good the DJ was. He had people dancing continuously. Hire DJ Repeatable!! You will not be disappointed!!

Our wedding ceremony was outside/reception inside. He came early and stayed late. DJ Tabasko was amazing pure and simple! He knew exactly what to do and when to do it. The best part was he was over prepared. A transformer blew and we lost all power, but DJ Tabasko had brought an extra speaker with his own battery to save the entire wedding. We can not thank him enough for doing this. You will never be disappointed if you chose to have him DJ your wedding or event.

Absolutely amazing DJ and the ultimate professional! We booked DJ Sarg for our wedding reception and he did an incredible job! Nick met with us a couple of times prior to our wedding to help us organize our playlists and set up our schedule, which really helped the night run smoothly. The lighting package was also amazing and Nick handed out sunglasses to our groomsmen and glowsticks during the reception that were a lot of fun! All of our family and friends have told us how much fun they had and we owe that to Nick, who really set the tone for the night and even stayed longer than we booked to keep the party going! Everyone we spoke with since the wedding has said "the DJ was awesome!" We are forever grateful to Nick for making our night so special and would hire him all over again in a heartbeat! We highly recommend him and promise that you will not be disappointed!

Steven was so amazing to work with! I'm not the best with planning and Steven was very patient and asked all the important questions and left nothing out! He was so kind and offered us an amazing deal! When I had a hard couple weeks before the wedding he even helped me to be able to still afford his work while also giving me deals on exactly what I wanted! We got him to play for cocktail hour and I would definitely recommend that! He is an amazing musician and added a really cool environment for our guests while we were taking all our pictures! We didn't have to worry about a thing! During planning he allowed us to give him recommendations (we made a playlist of ideas through spotify) and then he arranged them to work perfectly! He even came to our walk though before the wedding to make sure we were all up to date on information and to make sure he could set up in the best place possible! Its extremely rare to have a DJ care about an event that much, and seeing how much he cared about our wedding was one of the main reasons for our five star review! The even was absolutely amazing! During the ceremony he was perfectly on time with the music. During the cocktail hour he played about live music. For the reception he provided a great atmosphere for dinner and great music for dancing! I would definitely hire him for his professionalism and quality, but also for his kindness! Thank you so much Steven!!

Michael DJ'd our wedding reception - He did a great job! Entertainment with Class offered online planning tools, so I was able to pick out music, plan the schedule, and put in requests on my own schedule (up until 2 days before the wedding). Michael was very responsive to all my questions. Everyone had such a fun time dancing, and we got a ton of compliments. Michael helped to keep me on the schedule I wanted (I wanted to make sure I had enough time to get around to all the tables to thank guests for coming, and also get a chance to dance myself). I know my family kept putting in requests for music, and he did an awesome job of accommodating them while also playing songs I really wanted. I would recommend Entertainment with Class to anyone looking for a DJ!

I would definitely recommend Good Vibrations to anyone looking for a reliable DJ service for a special occasion. Vinny (the owner) was a pleasure to work with and very understanding, even with a short notice booking. We were able to stay within our budget and still receive top notch customer service. Our DJ, Marquez brought our wedding reception to life with the right music and a fun/friendly attitude. They really lived up to their reputation and my bride was more than satisfied. Thanks again Good Vibrations!!! - J. Jackson Germantown, MD

My daughter was getting married this November and I had been researching DJ's for the wedding reception. I found DJ Romes on thumbtack. Although we live a couple of hours away from Mr.Romes he was the most reasonable in price and very knowledgeable. From the first email to the first time we spoke on the phone Mr. Romes was on top of everything. He was very helpful in planning out the timeline and keeping me up to date as to what he was doing and what he needed from me. We met the first time the night of the reception (because of the distance) he was very friendly, very professional and the guests loved him...he even danced with us to the Cupid Shuffle and a few other songs!!!! He's great! One of the guests is getting married next April and is hoping to hire him for his reception. I would highly recommend him! I have one more daughter to get married and I'm hoping to use DJ Romes for her reception. Tonya T.

I was looking for a DJ for my wedding reception last minute. DJ Jigga came through to save the day. The day of my reception I was running late and was in panic mode because I was to be there when he arrived, "but that didn't happen" he got there 1 hour before me and did his thing, I was calling to tell him to start without me because my guest was arriving, He replied "Already on it" Can I say "The Best DJ Ever" he played a variety of great music and worked in the songs I requested. My guest was very pleased & kept asking where did I find this DJ. He lit up my reception with his amazing lights which added beautiful atmosphere to the dance floor. I Highly recommend him, he help make my event run smoothly!

My husband and I hired Floyds DJ Services for our May 13, 2017, ceremony in Woodbridge, Va. Finding a DJ had proven to be my toughest task during the wedding planning phase. . . that is, until Kacey responded to my request for information. She's pleasant, easy to work with and was always responsive. The constant threat of rain for our outdoor ceremony has us wavering on whether we'd be outdoors or move the ceremony inside. Kacey remind flexible as we didn't make the final call until just hours before the ceremony was to start. We were lucky enough to have BOTH Kacey and her husband, DJ Unknown, for our ceremony and reception. He is a GREAT hype man, and together, they read the crowd and played the right mix of old-school jams (as I requested) and current Top 40 Hits (including a ton of songs from my personal playlist suggestion). DJ Kacey even got on the dance floor to lead the crowd into a line dance and help get the party started. Their sound system was super crisp and there wasn't a single glitch! We had selected a final song to be played, and when it came time, DJ Kacey and DJ Unknown surprised us with a PHENOMENAL send off by having our guests line up in a receiving line to end the day. In a word, it was pure magic! Floyds DJ Services is a true example of exceptional quality that doesn't break the bank. I'd recommend them 10 times over! -Kevin G.

Larry Wrinn was absolutely fantastic. My bride to be wanted specific music played at a specific time and Larry hit the nail on the head during the entire wedding and reception. He even attended the wedding rehearsal to reassure my bride. The cocktail hour and reception music was excellent. Several of our guest requested Larry's business cards. We will definitely use Larry for future events.

We had our wedding ceremony on May 28, 2011 at Maggiano's. Ben Howard did an excellent job. He is an outstanding professional. My wife and I are extremelly satisfied with his work and all the people at the reception was very happy with the music played by Ben and with his performance. He is a very kind person and he has a great sense of humor. He spent a lot of time with us planning our party. We thank Ben for his job and we highly recommend him. Do not hesitate to contact him. Your celebration will be a success if Ben takes care of the music and the animation. Thank you very much Ben for making our party an event that we will never forget.

Greg is seriously a miracle worker! With very little direction from me, Greg showed up to our wedding reception early (and was one of the last to leave), set up an amazing production, and managed to draw in every single guest. He was extremely receptive to requests, both from us ahead of time and from our guests at the reception; flexible to spontaneous schedule changes; and overall just so much fun. So many guests - friends, parents, grandparents - commented on what an amazing job Greg did keeping everyone entertained and dancing. Could not have asked for anything more. Thank you again Greg!!

I hired Smashing Entertainment for a photo booth at my daughter's wedding reception. It was great having a little something extra to do. Also, instead of making party favors, the photos serve as party favors. Also, I got the guest book option. Instead of an ordinary guest book, people glue their photos in and write their wishes for the couple under the pictures. There are various funny props for people to pose with. The attendees very friendly and helpful. Recommended!

Strings for Christ played during my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. They were phenomenal! From the very beginning, Wayman was super responsive to our requests. The day of the wedding, people raved about the ceremony and the ambiance. The music was exactly what I imagined it would be! I also love the fact that this is a Christian ensemble :)

We LOVED Karl and Slable Entertainment! Karl is just a great guy with many talents, and he had such a great personality! In addition to being very professional and detail oriented, Karl was very responsive to all communications from us and he took the time to meet with us and to have phone conferences as needed. Slable Entertainment really provided us with an excellent experience at our wedding reception. The quality of their equipment is fantastic, and the music they played was such a perfect balance of classy, fun, sassy, upbeat...it was just a blast! I also really like how structured Slable is as it concerns booking, payment, scheduling, etc. They have a very detailed and useful website that is thoughtfully organized to provide the maximum information. I spent a good amount of time looking through their website before I hired Slable to DJ at our wedding, and it was such a wealth of knowledge. The people at Slable do just about everything, and they do it well! On the day of our wedding reception, Karl was punctual, organized, professional, and upbeat! I loved how he would approach me periodically just to check in and make sure that everything was to my liking. He was so great to work with, and he has such a great attitude about what he's doing. We really appreciated having him there to add to our special day! We highly recommend Karl at Slable Entertainment!!

My wife wanted a wedding singer for our wedding. I said okay, but in the back of my mind I had flashes of Adam Sandler. We contacted David, and the whole process was very smooth...he was flexible and accomodating to what we wanted. We picked out 3 songs we wanted him to sing and he improvised the rest just before the start of the ceremony, which we were fine with. Let me tell you, David hands down exceeded our expectations. It felt as though we were at a concert rather than a wedding...we absolutely loved everything about his voice, his guitar playing, everything! In fact, he had me crying when he started singing the entrance songs for Sheila and I...it was very touching. We were married 4/29/2017, and we are both beyond happy that he was there to sing for us and our guests. Our guests are still raving about what a wonderful job the wedding singer did. Hiring David was the best decision for us and for our wedding, and we are honored by your presence. We cannot thank you enough for making our day even more special. So for anyone and everyone out there that is looking to enhance their day with the addition of a wedding singer, David is the man you need, hands down, no questions asked...he is that awesome!

Mr. Grattan provided videography, a band, and a duo, for my daughter's wedding. It was such a relief having all of that in the hands of one person instead of three different vendors. The band was called the Rockits, and they were fantastic. They played great music and when they went on break, they played new music like a DJ would. It was really perfect. The duo was PG&Robin. They were really good for the beginning when people were heading in and having a champagne before the ceremony. The video Mr. Grattan did was really professional and my daughter got it within a week, which is unheard of. She got a long and short one. I highly recommend Mr. Grattan and PG Productions for video and entertainment.

I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.

Jack Philipoom came to my attention at my nieces wedding reception in Williamsburg , Virginia where he was performing jazz guitar with an ensemble. It was there that I booked him for a garden party at my McLean , Virginia home. The flow and style of this extremely talented musician added an elegant ambiance to our evening. His personality is delightful, and our guests found him to be simply charming. I will definitely rehire him, and have highly recommended him to our friends.

There are not enough kind words for Mark. He came to my house with his harp to play for me and once I booked him he kept everything a surprise. Having a harp at my wedding ceremony and cocktail hour was a surprise for my mom! Mark came to the rehearsal and stayed incognito the whole time. Mark was professional and added such class to the wedding. The music was beautiful and Mark let me customize it to exactly what I wanted. I would recommend Mark a million times over!!! Also my mom cried when she realized there was a harp. Thank you Mark for making my day so special!
