DJ Mannia - First Review!
Posted 30 July 2009 - 12:17 PM
So anyway I sat down with Carlos and he had my playlist printed and he had highlighted things and made notes all over it. He told me there was one song on there (I had like, 200 on the list) that he was not able to find. Turns out I had the wrong artist on there and he had another version that was almost the same. Then, at his suggestion, he played the father/daughter dance on the computer (Tori Amos - Winter) so that I could make sure it was the right version.
The day of the wedding he came with his associate, Alex. Alex came up to very subtely me a few times during the wedding to ask how I wanted certain things sequenced, when I wanted the dinner music to end and start dancing, etc.
In the end, Carlos went mostly off my playlist but did add a few songs that were big hits. I gave him a "do not play list" that included pretty much any cheesy wedding songs, group dances, etc. Funny enough he had asked me at the meeting what to do if someone asked him to play a song that was too wedding-ish, and I said "tell him the bride said no" and started laughing. Well sure enough during the party, my friend Danny came up to me and said "I need your permission to play my song! The DJ won't play it!" and started laughing.
I have to say I was totally impressed with DJ Mannia. I expected some problems with food, setup, timing, etc, but in my opinion, bad music can totally ruin a party. I can sometimes be a bit of a New York snob (ok, I totally am), and coupled with being totally anal, I find fault in pretty much anything. Yes, not good qualities, but its important to know that, because I could find no fault in DJ Mannia - he completely lived up to my expectations. I got so many compliments on how great he was. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!

Does he play at other resorts? How did you find him? Do you have his contact info / prices?? This is my one fear for our wedding (Jan 2010) that there isn't a decent DJ we can use. Did he introduce all your dances etc for you?
