        Hi Ladies,

         

        There are only a few threads that I've found about the DJ I hired, here they are:

        Its a tricky decision choosing any vendor from afar! I personally havent found many reviews on any Jamaican DJs so I kinda went with my gut here - Sure the above are good reviews of Kevan (but mostly by noobs and lurkers) and on his facebook page (which he of course has control over) but I chose him because he just seemed very professional. He always responds to my emails in a timely matter and has helped me out finding things in Jamaica that were not really related to his job. His website is also very professional and he is a BDW vendor as well :)

         

        This is what he quoted me for my wedding:

         

        WEDDING DJ SILVER PACKAGE $550.00

        • (this package is for  up to 4 hrs of music)
        • Free meet and greet consultation with your DJ
        • professional digital sound system
        • cordless microphone for speeches and introductions
        • wide variety of music

         

        I didnt bother to negotiate the price with him because it fit my budget and he really put a lot of time and effort in with me before I even hired him. Having a good DJ is SUPER important to me. Not only to have good music (my family LOVES to dance) but to have the option to request songs throughout the night, and have someone MC the event. You dont get that from your Ipod.

         

        That's about all the info I can give you ladies atm! I'm 3+ months from my big day so on my return you can expect a thorough review of all my vendors, if you can wait till then :)

          Hi breeze I'm so grateful I read this thread.  I started to read your review and others for the DJ.  Once I visited his facebook and he highly referred by Sungold I think it sealed the deal for me in my mind.  I love Paula from Sungold and she seems to think highly of him.  God I surely hope my gut instincts with the both of them are worth it and that I'm not just being sold on their great selling style lol.

            Really? I didn't see their refferal on there! That's fabulous, I'm so glad I chose him. I've seen a lot of good reviews about sungold and their work really speaks for itself. I'm sure you have no worries there! And you're right, that they recommend Kevan says a lot.

              If you check his face-book it seems like they did a wedding together recently and Paula also sent another bride his way recently.  You have no idea how happy I am that I read this, I'm so excited .  Breeze are you having a beach party?  Sorry if I've already asked you.  

               

               

              I want to have a beach party and fire dancers.  I also want to have a welcome party and possibly a bonfire after the rehearsal dinner.  Not sure if I'm going overboard

                Hey Ladies,

                 

                Thank you for the info this DJ sounds like good stuff, i think after my ceremony i will be looking forward to unwinding and a good DJ will seal the deal. Sungold is great and Michael Chen i will be choosing one of the two, florist i will not be using flower studio not sure who yet. Being on this forum is great. I saw this photo and really liked the workgaz 2.JPG

                  wow I really like this set up asheeki.  Are you getting married at the gazebo?  I think I've heard a lot of good things about Tai florist.  One of the brides used Godfrey and his work looked fantastic and was about a quarter of the price. Just wish we had more recommendations.  You may want to ask Nicole if he's worked with her again.

                    Tina and Breeze,

                     

                    Hello my ladies!  I wanted to ask you guys why you decided against the resort DJ?  I thought I was done with everything until you guys hired outside DJs.  Now I am super concerned because I really want to have a great reception so of course music is super important! Let me know what's going on!

                     

                     

                    Thanks,

                     

                    Nikki

                      Hello Asheeki

                       

                      If you dont mind how much did Micheal Chen charge you? Are you doing a TTD? Just trying to get an idea of pricing.

                       

                      Mischka
