DJ D-Mac was AWESOME. Good music was a top priority for us, and he far exceeded our expectations. It's really hard to evaluate a DJ based on a conversation, but Daryle (DJ D-Mac himself) took time to meet with us in person, before we had a contract, to get a sense of our personalities and what we were looking for, and seemed to immediately grasp what we hoped to achieve for our multicultural wedding. He provided music for the baraat, Indian ceremony, snack break, American ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and uplighting for the reception -- all at a very reasonable price point.
The sound quality/volume was excellent -- it was never too loud anywhere, no yelling over music to talk to guests. He also timed all of the music perfectly, especially for the two ceremonies. Most importantly, the reception music kept our dance floor packed all night long, with guests of all ages (even on a Sunday)! The songs flowed perfectly from one to the next (Daryle clearly put a lot of thought into prepping our playlist for this), and were a perfect balance of classic and current Indian/Bollywood and American songs. There was also no cheesy "wedding DJ" stuff -- he was the consummate professional, and let his music do all the talking. The uplighting was also exactly what we envisioned, making the room warm and welcoming.
Quite a few guests complimented us on our DJ, telling us he was the best they'd ever heard. We couldn't agree more, and would strongly recommend him to others.
We used DJ D Mac and Associated for our wedding and Marc in particular was amazing. He took everything we said into consideration and kept the dance floor packed all night. We chose them because we did not want the typical "wedding DJ" and don't particularly like pop music so they seemed to fit the bill. Marc was prompt, professional and such a breeze to work with. He even got all our last minute requests in that we sent him the night before which really was great. And he was very gracious and professional when my Dad tried to trick him into playing a rock song for our Father-Daughter dance. He handled everything flawlessly and we had many comments from guests that our wedding was the best and most fun wedding that they had been to!
What is there to say about DJ-Mac? He and his staff were flawless. The music was amazing, the sound for the ceremony was on point, and the lighting was perfect. He was extremely helpful in the lead-up to the wedding and took all of our requests graciously, as well as provided some advice on what he thought would work and what wouldn't.
I would recommend our DJ, KC, in a heartbeat. He was fantastic. We received tons of complements from our guests about how he was the best DJ they had heard. In addition, KC was an absolute pleasure to work with. He played everything we requested, including finding the perfect 1 minute clip of the Ohio State marching band fight song that we used to introduce my parents at the reception. KC has such a positive attitude and it reflected in his work. We also used the sound system for our outdoor ceremony. The sound was perfect.
DJ D Mac made our reception spectacular. We knew from the beginning that we didn't want a typical DJ but someone who could read the crowd's subconscious--know what song to play and when to play it. We didn't want line dancing songs, we wanted a variety of music but that flowed and transitioned seamlessly. We wanted our guests to feel that they were at a club, not at a cheesy sweet 16 party with a overly talkative DJ narrating the entire event. We wanted something epic... and DJ D Mac made our wedding something that continues to be described as "epic" even days later. The best advice he gave us was that if we wanted to create a buzz on the dance floor was that my husband and I would need to be dancing---he was right and wasn't hard advice to follow. He was open to all songs we suggested, entertained song requests from a few drunken individuals without rudeness, and blended everything together perfectly. He got guests of ours on the dance floor that I didn't think I would ever catch dancing and made it difficult for anyone to want to leave. Every song he played was spot on and he always played the best part of each song, never letting anything get stale. He read our crowd incredibly accurately and even his narration during our reception in getting people in their seats, reminding them what the next thing was to take place... was conveyed in a classy way with a touch of humor. People who didn't really dance that much to those who danced all night have continued to rave about DJ D Mac. Honestly, I loved everything about our wedding but I doubt it ever would have been as incredible if DJ D Mac had not made our dance floor such an electric centerpiece of our event. Thank you so incredibly much!
DJ D-Mac and Associates provided both the sound system for our outdoor wedding ceremony and DJing for our reception. Both turned out perfectly! Despite having to pay for two separate sound systems, since one was outdoor and the other indoor, their overall price remained competitive.
Our consultation was held with owner Daryle/DJ D-Mac, who told me about his company and their services, and then asked about us and our wedding. After learning about our musical tastes and what we were looking for in a wedding DJ, he recommended his associate Les Talusan/The Pinstriped Rebel to DJ our reception. We arranged a follow-up call with Les and immediately felt really comfortable with her. We were looking for a real DJ, not a "wedding DJ" that makes cheesy announcements and awkward commentary, and plays predictable music, and Les seemed like exactly the DJ we were looking for.
The company uses Basecamp to manage their events, so we uploaded our lists of "must plays" and "do not plays" and the songs for our special dances to the system. The only thing I didn't like was having to communicate with Daryle and Les through Basecamp - it added a few extra steps to the process instead of quickly sending an email. However, communicating through Basecamp keeps all communication and wedding information in one place and I get why they use it.
Les was absolutely amazing on our wedding day - we can't say enough great things about her. She arrived early to set up, captured an audio recording of our ceremony, and was relaxed, laid-back, and fun. Every song she played was perfect and it was obvious she understood our musical tastes. She brought turntables with her, which our friends thought was awesome (we did too!), and we received so many compliments on both Les and the music. A friend that lives 1,500 miles away even asked Les for her card, in case he ever needs a DJ. We are so glad we found her!!
The music was by far the most important aspect of our wedding and DJ Rusty B from DJ D-Mac and Associates blew it away. We couldn't be happier. Our goal for the wedding was to have everyone on the dance floor, tearing it up, for the entire night and that's exactly what Rusty helped us do. From the beginning of the ceremony to the last song - he knew exactly what we wanted to hear and exactly what to play to keep everyone happy and dancing. He was fun and helpful on the mic during introductions and transitions while still letting the music do the talking for the evening. My husband and I had a very specific list of songs we wanted played throughout the ceremony and reception and Rusty delivered beautifully while also adding his own flow to the mix that we loved!! Communication with DJ D-Mac and Rusty was always clear and efficient and their prices are extremely affordable. We wanted the music to be the highlight of our wedding and Rusty made that happen! We can't recommend Rusty and DJ D-Mac & Associates highly enough.
We hired DJ D-Mac & Associates for our wedding in June and they were absolutely awesome! My husband has specific music tastes and DJ Jayclue was able to perfectly balance our preferences with classic dance tunes. The cocktail hour and reception were in the same location and he kept the party going throughout! He was incredibly professional ensuring everything from all possible equipment needs to the correct pronunciation of names. The dance floor was full all night long! Highly recommended!
Associate DJ Neville C was the absolute perfect fit for our wedding. He did an incredible job choosing songs based on our broad guidelines, and kept the dancefloor going strong under a tent in the middle of an actual HAILSTORM, no joke. When we had a request for a family member to sing along to a Sinatra song, he accommodated our guest without any problems. DJ Neville C and DJ D-Mac as a company were also very easy to work with in terms of communication, payment, and planning and the sound quality was excellent. I cannot recommend DJ D-Mac and Associates, and in particular DJ Neville C highly enough!
Our friends and family love to dance, so finding a great DJ was a really important part of our wedding planning. We couldn't have made a better choice with Marc of DJ D-Mac. During the planning, he was extremely helpful and prompt, and on the day of, he made the sound work perfectly in a venue that was less than ideal for a DJ setup.
But, most importantly: the dance. party. was. AMAZING. My husband and I didn't leave the dance floor all night, and so many of our friends and family told us how amazing the dance party was, and that ours was the best wedding they'd ever been to. I didn't necessarily go into the wedding expecting to feel this way, but that night was legitimately the best of my life because dancing with all of my friends and family was just absolutely the best. Writing this makes me wish I could go back to that night right now!
In other words, get Marc as your wedding DJ and it will be the best decision you make about your entire wedding.
We had Les "The Pinstriped Rebel" DJ our wedding. We were SO lucky to have found DJ D-Mac and Les!! The music was an absolute highlight of our entire day. From our first meeting with Les, we were convinced we were in good hands. My husband and I both have pretty different tastes in music, so I'm sure we sounded like crazy people going over what we wanted our wedding to sound and feel like, but Les kept us calm and made us feel confident she could pull off a seamless dance party. We wanted our wedding to feel like an awesome fun night for all generations there, and with all the praise we've gotten since, I am so happy we found Les.
Her style felt classic and retro, and we really loved her vinyl. The microphone we used at the reception was the Elvis Mike and it added a special feeling to the whole evening.
Important note: I felt really strongly I did NOT want a cheesy wedding DJ announcing each portion of the evening. Les was happy to sit back and focus on doing what she does best; music (although she would NOT have been cheesy!) Instead, my dad's best friend MC'ed the evening for us, and it ended up being a heartfelt and marvelous way to host the evening. THANK YOU LES and DARYLE for everything!!!
We loved working with Rhome aka DJ Stylus! From start to finish he demonstrated professionalism, and always worked towards giving us the wedding we imagined. We appreciated the amount of time he spent with us before the ceremony to listen to our hopes for the wedding and to learn our music preferences. He understood the vibe we wanted to convey and delivered that, from the beginning of the reception, to our first dance, through dinner, and onto partying! He kept us and our guests on the dance floor all night... we didn't want the night to end! We would absolutely recommend DJ Stylus, and DJ D-Mac and Associates to anyone looking for a DJ!!
DJ Jayclue was masterful. He read the crowd well and played the songs we wanted played at our wedding. We were also impressed with his attention to details (speakers needed, venue restrictions, etc...). Best of all, he stayed in constant contact with us!
He's awesome., not your nightmare disk jockey. He helped us plan through our wedding and the music we wanted played at each point. And he was able to get everyone up and dancing (which I thought for sure would never happen)! He's professional and prepared. No way you could go wrong!
Daryle of DJ DMac associates was absolutely incredible. He provided dj and lighting for my wedding, and what he created for my event was pure genius. He mixed the most amazing play set for the whole reception and no one sat down ever! We had so many desserts left over! He asked me for a list of absolute most plays and he was able to play then with other hits to cater to all ears. He also worked the lights during the dancing for added effect, and used my wedding color on the walls in the reception. I have never had so much fun at a wedding ever, and I am so happy that it was my own! If you want an event that everyone will be talking about way after your wedding day, trust me, this guy is it!! Daryle you are the best!
DJ Neville-C made our NYE wedding an absolute blast. We decided early on that music would be the most crucial aspect of our reception because it would be New Year's Eve and dancing would dominate our reception given that we did not have a seated dinner. Right off the bat we had great communication with DJ D-Mac. We told him that Neville C had come highly recommended by a friend and he hooked us up right away. We met with Neville-C at his very cool record store in DC, and right away knew he'd be a good choice. Throughout the planning process D-Mac and Neville-C were very responsive to our questions and ideas, and gave us the opportunity to provide a must play and don't play list of songs. Neville-C took all of that to heart and really killed it DJing our wedding. Everyone had a blast, the dance floor was always packed, and he played all the right songs for every moment. He really felt the vibe throughout the night and played to it. The only glitch throughout the entire process was that we were not informed until rather late the night before the wedding of equipment needs, which did not match up with equipment needs in the contract we signed. It turned out not to be a problem though because our amazing coordinator, Tyler Fitzhugh of Voila Events managed some last minute magic. I don't even know how, but Neville-C ended up with the tables he needed and even if he did not, I never knew it! Everything turned out more perfect than I could have imagined. Thank you!!
