    Outstanding Services
    While being an resident of New York I decided to plan a surprise birthday party for my grandmother whom lives in another state. The process of planning a party from another state proved to be a very diffcult task. From finding the venue , caterer and entertainment I knew I had my hands full. After finding the venue next was the entertainment , I was referred to Bennjamin and this was the best thing that could of happened. I explained to him how I was out of town and he made sure to always keep in contact along the process. Since the party was for my 70 year old grandmother he was very understanding on the genres of music that should be played. When it came to the day of the party Bennjamin was very prompt and professional, the party was to start at 12:00pm he arrived at 10 to set up and get the flow of everything ready. Throughout the entire party he kept the guest dancing and entertainined. He kept the flow of the party going and was very friendly to the guest. Leaving the entertainment in his hands was a breath of freah air. I was very sasified with his work and will be using his services again for future events.

    EXCEPTIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE
    Benjamin was outstanding and exceeded my expectation! He traveled all the way from Durham to Thomasville for our day! He was willing to accommodate me with some last minute changes and basically wrote my ceremony and reception reception timeline. Everything was perfect and I have Benjamin to thanks for making our wedding day exceptional!!!!

    "Excellent DJ"
    This guy was on point! I am a believer that if the DJ is not good for a wedding then it isn't going to be right but I had not one concern or issue with Mr. Benjamin. He had the music flowing all night after I took pictures with my guest all thru the night they kept asking me and saying (Who is the DJ) (He is great). Even the owner of the Venue came to me and requested the DJ information that's how great of a job he had did for us. He was very respectful thru out the process and also very understanding we was in communication with each other for 5 months. It was not one time that I had to wonder if he would text back call or email, he was there every step of the way. I was very pleased with Mr. Benjamin's dedication and hard work. I went over there to give him a hand shake to tell how good of a job he was doing during the reception (he was sweating). I really appreciated all that he did.

    Thank you, Benjamin! Benjamin was very professional, super organized, and was a fun DJ. Very easy to work with. We received many compliments on Benjamin's performance. He took care of everything with very little input from us, making our night that much easier.

    Amazing & intuitive; really knows how to read people and keep the party moving. Professional and fun. Excellent communication. Hands down, B Jam will be our 'go-to' DJ should the need arise again. We highly recommend him.
  • Felicia L. Apr 13, 2016
    Outstanding is an understatement for this DJ. My brother used to DJ so I knew what I wanted. Ben was not only super punctual, professional, organized, and personable but he knew what to play and when to play it. Ben exceeded our expectations and we have very high ones coming from Chicago. Plus we spent $10k on just the reception so we were a bit nervous at first. He did more than we expected from our ceremony to the very last dance. All night we kept hearing "where did you find that DJ?" He ended the night with Bootsie Collins (nothing else to say after that). He had my entire reception on their feet dancing for hours. Just an incredibly detailed and experienced DJ. Nice job!

    Excellent job! He listened to what we wanted for our wedding and executed it perfectly. He has great software to work with where you can establish a timeline/ideas/songs you want him to perform at your event. He's very organized and polite in person. He's also on time---which for any bride is important.

    Absolutely incredible. Easily my best vendor from my wedding. Ben was professional, yet down to earth, extremely flexible, but also ready and willing to take the reins and perform his art as a DJ. I am so impressed with his skills and talent, the way he was able to understand and realize my vision for the music throughout my ceremony and reception. The music was such an important and emotional part of my wedding and now that I look back on the day I can truly say that Ben played a huge role in making my dream of a wedding come true. And what an incredible value. I just can't say enough good things about him!

    Benjamin was the Man! He was awesome for our wedding and if we never need a dj again, I will be calling him back without hesitation. All the Guests loved him and asked for is information for their upcoming events. He kept it clean, family friendly, and the party still hopped!

    My experiences with Ben have been all good. He is punctual, efficient and professional. Ben pays attention to details and is gentleman. He takes direction well and remembers instruction. I can highly recommend Benjamin for whatever he may be needed for.

    Working with Ben was GREAT! He listened to what we wanted and provided us with an amazing reception! Even after we have him a list of songs he used his skills to play what would get the party up and dancing! I would recommend DJ DarkMatter to everyone!

    As an entertainer, it seems my plate becomes full easily. When I consulted with Mr. Mittman I was instantly impressed with his ability to organize my musical entertainment needs. Each time I've used his services he was punctual, polite, organized and willing to stay longer when I needed him to. This type of service is priceless.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Since I was a teenager I have known that I have a great appreciation for all types music. I enjoy being able to share that appreciation with others and to put a smile on others face. I decided to turn this into an official business when I realized that my love for music and ability to pick songs that keep people dancing was much more mature than most people.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
It is very important to make sure that the DJ that you are interested in hiring provides a quality services in all aspects of their business. Although providing quality music and sound for the event is the main objective, it is also important that the DJ maintains a professional persona, is concerned with playing music that represents the clients personality, and has a very clean presentation when it comes to their DJ setup.
