My wedding reception. They flat out ruined it! His sister was my dj and she refused to play requested music bc it went against her religious beliefs. She announced my wedding party all wrong. She would start playing my songs without announcing it so we all had a chance to get the dance floor. Example:: my wedding party song just started playing while we were outside smoking and we all had to run in like idiots and my maid of honor had left to get her kids so she want even there. My cake cutting song: we were still eatin dinner and it started playing so we dropped everything and took off running before the song ended. My father daughter dance I wanted to make a speech before it played just thanking my dad and that didn't happen. Spend your hard earned money someplace else! These guys are a joke seriously!!!Feb 10, 2016Mark S.'s reply
I have a business policy of not playing explicit music at weddings and school functions because there are children present. After talking to my sister about this reception, it was a difficult job because she could never get people gathered to get any of the wedding formalities done because everyone was a smoker so various people would be outside smoking instead of sticking around inside so all of the normal wedding formalities like tossing of the bouquet, garter toss, bride and groom dance and such could take place. The final contract for this reception was not even received by the clients until 2am.....yes that's 2am on the day of the event when it was hand delivered at my home by the groom.
Mark was very professional and the whole process went smoothly. We would definitely use his services again.Aug 11, 2015VerifiedMark S.'s reply
Thanks so much for the 5 star rating. I hope I can be of service in the future for other events your family will have.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't think my pricing system is to complicated. There are a few variables such as travel distance, inside or outside show, and if there are stair steps involved that requires carrying of the equipment which can add to the price of the service.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I belong to many D.J. chat boards across the internet as well as subscribe to monthly D.J. magazines and newspapers to keep up on the latest equipment and trends.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been a musician since the age of 9 and it gave me the experience of a lifetime to travel the world playing with a band. I"ve always loved music as well as sound equipment and lighting so I gradually got into D.J.'n where I can have more control over all aspects of the show to give guests a fun time they'll never forget.
