Searching for a GREAT DJ

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any success in finding a good DJ? I'm in the process right now of searching for a DJ and having limited success in reaching one. Realistically, I'm looking for someone who can cover 80s, 90s, today, and Jazz and be able to transition seamlessly throughout all of them. For me, I've been to tons of weddings and find that the music can sometimes make or break a wedding reception, especially when the majority of attendees are your friends.

 

Given that we are having our wedding in Honolulu, I have extended the time we have at our venue to 11:30PM (as opposed to 10:30PM). I did that because I want as much time as possible with all of our guests and hoping that we can dance the night away. With that being said, music and a great DJ is very important to me.

 

Has anyone had success in this area? What have you allotted with regards to budget for a DJ? Would it be out of line to call the local radio station and ask the DJ to perform at our wedding (not looking for the morning voice, but just someone who can play the music and play it well). I have a friend who will serve as my MC, so I don't really need the DJ to speak a word at all.

 

Thank you for any responses/suggestions!

We booked Music Express Productions after reading several great reviews on this husband and wife team. They are very reasonable and seem on top of their game. There is also DJ Troy Michael who gets a ton of recommendations but he was out of our price range

we used music express productions! rick peralta and his wife are a great team plus they have a very user friendly website where you can pick songs that you want played. there are a lot of clips too so you can even use it to sample music.

Tony So from The DJ Hawaii

 

DJ's are very important and sometimes over looked. I've been to a lot of weddings, and great DJ's can rock a crowd from 10 people to 500 people. I think it really comes down to knowing your clients and playing the right music to get everyone up and dancing. Tony is great at this and is also highly recommended by most resorts and hotels here.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
