- Wedding: August 2010
So I am now realizing that it doesn’t matter how you review someone on wedding wire or similar sites. The vendor has the final say. I just wanted to give an honest review of my DJ and rant off some little bits of information I am just now finding out.
For my wedding I used Easy DJ Productions, DJ Garry to be exact. It started off good his emails were promising and he had a pretty decent website set up for song selections. A couple days before the wedding he had given me a call to confirm name pronunciations and song choices. I hadn’t been able to take the time to make a “must play list” so I told him a mix of old and new for the beginning and when the party got started play the new stuff. The conversation ended at that. He was a great announcer, however he played the oldest song of new artists. Also, he gets up and dancing around with tamborines and maracas. Not really my thing, but my guests didn’t seem to mind it. So the overall experience was ok and I had wrote an honest review which he then emailed me and made me make edits to. I now wish I could take it all back after getting feedback from my photographer, who is a friend of mine.
I guess he was asking my photographers how much tail they get at weddings and giving them tips on how to pick up woman at weddings. TOOOOTALLY not appropriate. They were mortified and ran away whenever the DJ was helping himself heavily at our open bar. The drinking thing I was made aware about by my friend who works at a catering company, she said she just saw him at another wedding and he got completely wasted.
So fellow Pittsburgh bees, don’t trust the 5 star reviews you see and do more research then I did. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good time, but with a few negative extras that would have been a deal breaker for me had I know. If you do use it, I HIGHLY recommend putting in the extra effort to make the must play list, because I didn’t hear a thing that I thought I would.
