    I used DJ Bijan for my wedding at the Marriott Casa Magna June 25th for the reception.

     

    Overall Rating:  ----F----

     

    I corresponded with DJ Bijan through email for my upcoming wedding, he like a list of your favorite songs and then he likes to fill in the rest. We gave him a list that included our first dance, and some must plays during dinner and during dancing. I also included the absolute "Please do not Play". Our First dance was Frankie Valli " Can't take my eyes off you" which is a very special song to us. As the music started up we quickly realized that it was some modern remake of the song and wasn't even the original singer, which immediately upset me but I set my emotion aside and tried to enjoy my wedding. As soon as we finished our first dance, he for some reason announced that we were going to cut the cake over the mike ( We had not even eaten dinner???) I looked across the way completely confused and starting to get pissed off, but I was still trying to go with the flow and not let it ruin my wedding. Finally we set down to dinner and started to realize he was playing our dancing songs while we were all sitting eating, It took be about 5 minutes to realize he was playing the list we gave him in order from top to bottom, not paying attention to what was dinner and dancing music. The whole time he just sat there like a zombie letting the whole playlist go not paying attention. You could tell everyone of our guests were confused when all the fun dancing songs were being played while we were eating?? I sent over my step dad to ask DJ Bijan what was going on? He apologized and said he was sorry and would try to fix it, Finally I'm starting to loose my temper when after my step dad spoke to him, he played 2 songs back to back that were on my "Absolutely Please Don't Play" List. This was the final straw, I felt like I should have just brought my ipod, at least then I would have been able to dance to the right songs. The music was so bad, we ended the reception 1 hour early and told DJ Bijan we didn't need him anymore for the night. It was devastating, I wanted to be able to enjoy the reception and have some fun at my wedding instead we ended it, only got to dance to maybe 3 songs including our first dance and sat with our guests the rest of the night by the pool. I would caution future brides when booking DJ Bijan, his prices were good but I would have rather payed more money and have been able to enjoy my reception

      We used DJ Bijan of Mayan Vibes for our July 2012 wedding, both the ceremony and reception

       

      We were scared that we would not be able to achieve the vibe that we wanted for our day since my experience with music at Mexican bars has typically included Pop and House/Dance. We wanted oldies/Motown and neo-soul (think Otis Redding and Maxwell) playing during our dinner and hip hop/Top 40 and some 90's favorites (pretty standard) during our dance party. He asked us for a list to represent dinner music and one to represent the party music and took it from there. He completely got our vibe and every age group at our wedding enjoyed the music. Everyone and I mean everyone (only 36 guests but still) was on the dance floor for the entire night. He did not play any cheesy Chicken Songs, etc. and I did not have the foresight to tell him not too. 

       

      We did not have him make any announcements so I can't speak to that but I can say that he followed instruction pretty well. He played our ceremony music and did that flawlessly in response to my wedding planners instructions (which were not flawless, unfortunately).

       

      Of course, everyone being on the dance floor is the most important part but I should add that he was also great in terms of pricing and incredibly flexible. I got married in a Hacienda (Hacienda del Mar) and he stopped by the hacienda before I signed his contract to make sure that he could satisfy my wedding needs of having a courtyard dinner and a poolside dance party. Definitely recommended. I feel bad for not writing this recommendation much sooner.

        I do not recommend him as a DJ. We had our wedding last week and he played 50% of the kind of music we asked for.  I asked for a variety of music (spanish and english) and he played 90% english. He is also not good as an MC, he had no enthusiasm during the introductions and he actually didn't say the some names because "he couldn't pronounce them"!!!!!.  He is one of those DJ's that plays the entire songs and doesn't really mix them in, more like playing one song after the other.
