    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.

            Tony did a wedding I was at a couple of months ago and he was realllllllllly good at getting everyone on the dance floor. He managed to get all age groups dancing which is pretty impressive!
