I have to start by saying that I’m not comfortable writing this sort of review, but I can't recommend this DJ at all and other people need to be warned. If you’re considering hiring this company, just read the review and then make your own decision. We met with him initially and must say that he seemed to talk a good game. He talked about how all he cared about was our experience and that he knows exactly how to get the party going with just a song or two. Exactly the sort of reassurance you want to hear. He seems like a nice guy and his rate was much more reasonable than anyone else we talked to. My now wife and I coordinated with him to DJ a wedding in Roche Harbor - certainly not a long way from Seattle, but with the ferries/etc it isn't exactly simple to get to/from. He was very good about working with us on that. That is where the positive part of this ends. At the wedding he was playing 90's R&B grind music when we walked in. The first song we heard after walking down the aisle was 'Stroke you up' by R Kelly. No joke. Thankfully, no one else was in the rehearsal area at that point. It's as if he looked up that song on Pandora and hit play … it was bad. When the majority of the guests started to pile in he had on some decent muzac style stuff - almost like Jazz or something. It was totally fine. My wife asked for something similar, but better - how about some Michael Buble or Frank Sinatra. He changed things up and played a few songs of each. If this was the end of it I would haven't of had any issues, but this was only the beginning. Then it came time to announce things … give the guests directions, announce the couple, tell people it's time for dinner, speeches, etc. All things a DJ should be more than comfortable with doing. I personally gave him a full itinerary that was so specific it had times on it - yet - he seemed baffled every time we needed to make an announcement … when do we do it? What do I announce? He was reluctant about everything… as if we were interrupting him. Seriously, it’s on an itinerary and you’re a DJ, if anything he should be prompting us not the other way around. He couldn't handle the announcements/itinerary without people prodding him and didn't seem to like people telling him what to do - as if doing nothing was an option. In a truly unforgivable blunder he screwed up the father/daughter dance. You know, the moment that every father/daughter dream of - yeah that moment. Ruined. So, my wife told him she has a special mix of songs that she wanted him to play for the father daughter dance - like a mashup of 5 songs where the first song was 'butterfly kisses' as a joke (b/c it's so played out) and then bits of like 4 other songs would be randomly play and they could dance goofy and everyone could have a good laugh. Think Timberlake & Fallon in 'the history of rap' skit they do where they play 20-30 seconds of a song and then play the next song. Anyway, she talked with him about it, emailed him (in fact the conversation is in the email string that he replied to asking for a review) and asked how best to get him the music. He said to give him cd's, which my wife did. Guess what .. he did nothing. He played the first song and that was it … the 'joke' song, the played out song, THE ENTIRE SONG and none of the other songs. Yeah WTF. Want your wife to be practically in tears? This is a good way to do it. Think we're done? No. We, bride and groom, go off to take pictures on the water at sunset … everyone else starts dancing. When we came back we were literally each approached by friends the moment we walking in pleading with us that 'we had to do something about the music because he's played 5 Michael Jackson songs in a row.' What? Why 5 in a row? Eventually I think things settled in for about an hour of pop music which went fine. Then someone requested Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke, he started playing it and then it stopped playing. It was then that I realized he was trying to stream the song on a web music service with an internet connection in the San Juans. Fail. The song stopped, then played for a millisecond, stopped, played, stopped, played, stopped, played, stopped … I walked over and told him MOVE ON. It was totally embarrassing and killed the dance floor. Cause that's what a DJ does right? They make people NOT want to dance right? For the finale, I went back to my room with my now new wife and as we unwound for the night our phones start going off with texts. Yep, it was the DJ. He said he was going to sleep in his van b/c the last ferry was gone, but he'd like to get paid tonight. Granted, we forgot to bring cash for him, but I don't think that's the level of tact one should exercise when it's your client's wedding night and they have retired to the room for the night. I'm betting that could have waited until the morning. It just felt like poor judgement. I know this review got long, but we were seriously unhappy.

Do not hire this so called DJ. He is not professional by any means. He wrecked my wedding!! He was 45 minutes late so yes we started 45 minutes late. He totally hosed the first song. He plays cassette tapes. Run I'm telling you! This is a 0 star! DK
