We came across Bailey Entertainment by chance after we discovered a couple months from our wedding that our original DJ would be unable to work our July wedding – crisis! Nonetheless we were strongly referred over to Bailey Entertainment, had the pleasure of working with Neal Kramer, and we were anything but disappointed. While Neal is relatively new to the Central Coast area, he is no stranger to acting as a DJ and we HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or other event.

First, about working with Bailey Entertainment (i.e. Chris Bailey): Chris was incredibly accommodative and helpful when we got in touch with him after suddenly realizing we were without a DJ. He answered several questions and got us in touch with Neal, the DJ available. I am someone who likes to read reviews, and unfortunately Neal did not have any at the time since he is new to working as a DJ in the Central Coast. Chris Bailey however has an incredible reputation and did not hesitate to recommend Neal. When Chris said he would ask Neal to reach out to us so we could talk to him and ask questions, Neal called promptly when indicated he would. Taking a leap of faith after speaking to Neal (we were unable to meet in person as we were planning our wedding from out of town) and hearing Chris’ recommendation, we booked Neal for our wedding. Using the Bailey Entertainment online planning form was helpful, but we did not take much advantage of making specific music requests. Rather, I chatted with Neal over the phone about styles of music and the couple songs we didn’t want played, and then let Neal take control of most of the song selections for the dancing portion of the night. With ample years of DJing experience behind him, Neal had plenty of solid recommendations where needed.

Now about Neal: conversations with Neal left us feeling great in advance – he comes across as personable, confident, and flexible (i.e. he’ll play a list of songs you want or was happy to take more control over music selection as was the case for us). On the day of the wedding Neal was fantastic. He worked very well with our coordinators and other venue staff and made adjustments seamlessly as was needed. As soon as we were seated for dinner he came up to me and my husband to tell us congrats and to let us know he’d be happy to help get us anything we needed (an offer he repeated throughout the night). When key events were taking place his undivided attention was on us and all it took was a slight nod of our head to prompt the start or end to something such as the toasts (which was handy when one of the best men was not immediately present at toast time). Having been to a handful of weddings we’ve seen a variety of DJ personalities – everything from the DJ that never forgets to call attention to himself/herself to the shy DJ to the perfect one. Neal for us was perfect – never calling attention to himself but still able to direct the flow of events with our coordinators in a confident manner. He took requests from guests once the dancing got kicked off and managed the playlist/request list as needed to keep people moving on the dance floor. By the end of the night we still had a crowd on the dance floor!

Other notes: we also took advantage of Bailey Entertainment’s lighting services to have some up-lighting around our reception all that added a nice touch, especially once the main lights were turned down for dancing. Chris Bailey was helpful and flexible with us on the lighting end, especially considering we decided on this rather last-minute. From a cost perspective Bailey Entertainment is competitive with other DJ services, and the service level from Chris and Neal was top-notch. Can’t recommend these guys highly enough!

In a desperate attempt to cut costs, my fiancee and I seriously considered replacing a DJ with an iPod...that is until we met Chris Bailey. We are EXTREMELY glad we scrapped the iPod idea and hired a professional. Chris Bailey is just that -- a professional. He is organized, friendly, fun, accommodating and knows how to read a crowd. He has all the equipment you could ever need and an extensive music library. From the moment we met Chris we knew our wedding would turn out great. Our wedding was last Saturday and I can now definitively say that he did an outstanding job! Not only was our wedding beautiful, Chris made it fun and memorable! We are so glad that we made the choice to hire Chris.
