After contacting DJ Donnie he sounded very professional stating that he has done a ton of weddings and asked us for our playlist, song we wanted played and when announcements needed to be made. We emailed him all the information about 4 days prior to the wedding. Day of wedding Dj Donnie showed up on time to set up.... He played music while our guest were eating there was a slight hiccup with the speaker but didnt pay it no mind.... we were supposed to have our first dance outside in the gazeebo... this is were it all went downhill really fast. He never made the announcement for our first dance, the music was playing so low you couldnt even hear it. The speakers were continuously popping and he couldnt get it corrected at all. We asked him to announce our mimosa bar and dessert bar were open... he says "the bar is open" i repeat the bar is open" still mind you music was not playing we had guest offering to try n help him and offered thier phones with playlist and he declined. By this time the guest were leaving early. My wife was crying and completely upset and all he could do is say he is sorry. I payed him $310 and 150 deposit and 160 day of event... before it started. All he kept saying is this has never happened before and if we ever had another event it was on him... problem is you only get married one time, have 1 first dance. We didnt even get to have our groom and mother dance or bride mother dance. I requested a refund and he only gave me 75 back stating that i played some music towards the end of the reception... 35 minutes out of 3 hours. Wow! Since then i have been trying to contact him back to get my money back and he is not responding to my text or calls so we sre filing a small claims court case to recoup our funds. Every guest at the wedding even said dj Donnie was terrible and that we shouldnt of payed him. So glad he didnt do our ceremony as that was well done by our venue. Im sure im leaving out more awful things that took place but i was too busy trying to keep my wife calm and make her feel better.Nov 7, 2016VerifiedLewis D.'s reply
Actually, I have never meet you, My grandmother passed 2 days before your wedding and I hired a DJ from Thumbtack because i didn't want to cancel on you. It was not me and i since refunded you every dime for their mistake.. I have 24 great reviews...
DJ Donnie was Very Professional, he had a nice set up I will definitely be recommending this DJ to everyone I know. Thank again DJ Donnie for doing our parents 50th Anniversary. Sharon JSep 25, 2016Verified
