Vendor Review – The DJ

9 Jun

Review grade: A

Our DJ, John from Soundquest Entertainment was SO great to work with. He provided me with several forms, such as a timeline of the evening, favorite songs/types of songs, songs or artists to avoid.

He kept the music at a volume that was great for dancing, but not forcing the older relatives to leave. Their selection of music was pretty spectacular, I had a hard time coming up with something that they didn’t have.

The DJs with Soundquest work in pairs, so if one is on break, you’ve still got someone manning the “station.”

The best part was: John was totally willing to stand up to guests for our desires. We’d requested no chicken dance and no dollar dance. I had a family member begging him to do one, and he refused – until he had the okay from us that we’d be willing to do it.

I’ve been to too many weddings where the bride and grooms wishes aren’t met, and ours was the complete opposite.

I’d honestly, heartily recommend him to any friend or acquaintance looking for a great, energetic (but not annoying) DJ for their wedding or party, and I hope we can find a reason to hire John again.

Oh, and we heard from several relatives that the music was good — and the volume was great.

The price is fair too — 4 hours of entertainment and an hour of dinner music would be only $500.

    Hey, I was recommended to your blog by a girl on the boards of WeddingBee.com – I am living in NC but getting married in MN in June of next year…. I have a lot of the details planned (site, officiant, caterer, photographer, florist, dress, etc.) but I was needing some suggestions for DJ, and your post was JUST what I needed! Can I say I read an excellent review of them? Also – I am looking for hair, and maybe makeup (which I kindof think is a sham), If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get yours?

    Thanks so much for your help!

      Sure, just tell them that you heard about them from Kenzie 🙂

      My makeup came from a girl named Elida — here’s her e-mail address. I highly recommend her — she’s a MAC-trained pro with a ridiculous amount of makeup — and she did airbrush. I loved her work! elidalindsay@yahoo.com

      My stylist flew in from Portland, so I could give you her information, but if you wanted her to be here for your wedding, I’m afraid you’d have to pay for her airfare and hotel. If you’re still interested, I’d be happy to share her info.
