@ginnyc, we’re going with Juke Box Bandstand for our DJ. They did a friends wedding last year and it was a good time. We went to another wedding this past weekend that used Prime Time DJ – I personally wasn’t a fan, but it could have been the requirements placed on the DJ for entertainment. Too much talking and “group” dances for my taste.

We are using Double Platnium DJ. Bill (the owener) is super cool. Totally not your cheesy DJ. The owner always takes the first booking for any date, so you’ll most likely get him to DJ your reception. He has a flat fee no matter how long he is there. He’s just a cooolll guy.

As a wedding planner, I have dealt with many djs ๐Ÿ™‚

So far I really like Madison Mobile DJ and Midwest Sound DJ!

Good Luck!

@ginnyc: Madison Mobile DJ, Double Platinum and Jukebox are fantastic. If you are still looking, Celebrations is another good DJ in the Madison area. Sound by Design is out of Milwaukee but will travel to Madison and they are definitely great at keeping and maintaining that party atmosphere. They also offer combo packages on lighting and/or photo booth if interested in any of those services.

We used Magnum entertainment out of Milwaukee. We got 6 hours for $450. They were great. The dance floor was packed all night. They probably one of the best wedding DJ’s I have seen. They didn’t chagre us for travel either.

Met with Bill, from Double Platinum today, we’re going to book with him.  He did tell us though, that he doesn’t really do much of the DJing himself anymore, as he can better concentrate on problem solving for any of the other DJs that have gigs that weekend, or whatever.  Just thought I’d share what he said, since  @corrc7131 said he always takes first booking.  He said he matches couples up with the DJ that would best fit their needs/personalities, which is really nice.

@greeneyes_320:  How did you end up liking High Energy DJs at your wedding?

@DomesticDiva:  They were ‘OK’. I think the DJ they sent me was not a good fit/match for me like I’d hoped they were going to be. We bascially had to tell him every single song to play (which he did, for the most part) and then he’d disappear and go smoke… I’d maybe consider going with some one else had I known. Sorry for the delayed response.

@greeneyes_320:  Oh crap.  ๐Ÿ™  That’s not good.  We really don’t want to pay 1K for a DJ, so we had decided to go with High Energy, but we haven’t booked them yet.  Do you remember what the guy’s name was?  That way we can…unrequest him…haha.

@DomesticDiva:  yea, his name was Aaron— he might even be there anymore, but def I don’t recommend that guy! We wanted to keep our wedding on a budget– so for those reasons you should be fine. Good luck!
