Vern was the DJ for our wedding in Alexandria in April, which was a small event with about 50 guests. Vern did a wonderful job. We were very pleased with his work. We felt that everything went smoothly, and all the transitions (intro of bride & groom, first dance, etc.) were done just as we asked. Vern asked us for a list of "do not play" songs in advance, and when one guest requested a similar song to one on our list he asked our permission before playing it. And, of note, Vern's price was considerably lower than several other DJs we contacted. Overall, he was very professional, did a wonderful job on our special day, and provided a great value. We would gladly recommend Vern to anyone looking for a DJ in the future.
DJ Greyhound contributed an essential part to our reception. Everyone had a great time. I gave him little direction and still all my guests had a great time. He is good at reading a crowd and follows your directions and manages them according to exactly what you request - either on the big day or during the planning stage.
Friends and family commented to us that it was the best wedding they had been to in a while, partly due to the amazing DJ Greyhound.
Vern was awesome. He's very professional and easy to deal with. He's not into high pressure sales tactics or telling you how your reception should be. He listened to exactly what we wanted and absolutely nailed it. We talked through exactly the type of music and style of DJ that we wanted and we confirmed everything the week before. He showed up on time and kept the party moving just like we asked. At the end of the night, we got a ton of compliments on the DJ. We could not have been happier. We highly recommend DJ Greyhound.
We used DJGreyhound (Vern) at my daughter's wedding at Woodend in Chevy Chase, MD. Vern was great! He really knows the venue and came early and was all set up and ready to go during cocktail hour after the ceremony. We got tons of compliments on the music and dancing - his choices were great. He also worked with my daughter and her fiance throughout the process to play everything they wanted to hear and also gave them a custom CD he made at the end of the reception. I worked directly with him by email prior to the wedding in secret from my daughter, because we had made a Father/Daughter dance slideshow that she did not know about. Vern took the CD from us when we first arrived, and took over from there getting the TV/DVD player set up and ready, and playing the slideshow at just the right time. He couldn't have been more helpful. He is very reasonably priced as well and gives you 5 hours for his price - many only give 4. I would highly recommend him!
Vern did a fantastic job DJ-ing our wedding! He played all our many requests as well as requests from the crowd, was very familiar with our venue, and kept everyone dancing!! He was very organized in planning with us ahead of time and offered a package to us that was a fantastic value. He really did a great job understanding the type of music we were going for and everyone had a fantastic time. Very highly recommended.
DJ Greyhound is a consummate professional and was one of the easiest vendors to work with. We carefully vetted our other vendors and compared other options once we met Vern in person we knew right away that he was the one for us. We were happy to avoid having to meet other DJs and were confident that he would get the job done. He is priced competitively and provides 2 musical setups so that you can have music in 2 areas of the venue (e.g., ceremony and reception). He has a great selection of music, solid equipment, and is responsive and punctual. Other DJs seemed more expensive, pushy, and difficult to work with which was not our experience with DJ Greyhound at all. He provides documentation to ensure that all your questions are answered and makes you think about timelines and the music well ahead of time in the planning process before you are overwhelmed by other details. It was important to us to keep our wedding focused on family and have the DJ be low-key rather than the over-the-top DJs you often get at hotel receptions. Vern was happy to go with the flow and always had a wireless microphone available for all the speeches and announcements by the groom, best man, father of bride, etc. Most importantly, if you want a crowded dance floor at the end of the night, DJ Greyhound delivers. Are you still reading this? Seriously, just book him already!
Vern was great and everything you would hope your wedding DJ would be: very responsive, completely professional, punctual, and friendly. Most of all, he really listened to us and played the music that our friends and family love! He definitely kept us on track and on time throughout the night, but was not an obtrusive presence. Highly recommend!
I highly recommend DJ Greyhound. Vern miked our ceremony, announced the wedding party, and provided music for cocktails, dinner, and dancing. He is very professional and easy to work with. The planning sheet he provided made it very easy for us to pick songs/genres. Vern helped keep the event on schedule and kept people on the dance floor.
DJ Greyhound was an amazing DJ who helped guide us through the process. He is incredibly organized, responsive, and helpful. His planning sheet was my guide for the whole wedding. You can tell that with him you aren't just another gig on his calendar, but people whose wedding day he wants to make incredible. At the end of the reception people were coming up and telling us that they loved the music! I would recommend his services to anyone!
DJ Greyhound was awesome!! He is very friendly, hard working and gave quality service! He got all the songs we requested for our wedding ceremony and reception. He played songs requested by our guests. Continuous fun party!! Make no mistake he is the best DJ!! Hire him for your event and you will be very pleased!
DJGreyhound was wonderful to work with - very friendly, well organized, responsive to all communication via email/phone chats, insightful to providing program layout advice. A big thanks to his terrific services overall for our wedding reception (6/29/13)!!
Hire this DJ!! To be honest, I did not spend a lot of time looking for or interviewing DJs as I was working full time and going to law school part time while trying to plan the wedding. I hired DJ Greyhound after only a phone interview without even meeting him because (1) his rates were really reasonable; (2) he already had good reviews; and (3) I liked that he donated some of his proceeds to a good cause. He was also incredibly flexible with the set-up at my reception. My venue had 3 floors - cocktails on the first floor, dinner on the second floor, and dancing on the third floor. He used his main system on the first floor and his second system on the second floor. During dinner he moved his main system up to the third floor to be ready for dancing. And he didn't charge extra for bringing the second system! His music selections all night were spot on. He had my guests dancing the ENTIRE night - seriously the dance floor was never empty. And our venue let us stay later than planned, so he stayed later as well with no complaints. At the end of the night, he gave us a CD with all of our wedding songs on it.
Vern was such a great choice for our wedding. We met up with him months befor our wedding to discuss what we wanted and more importantly what we didn't want based on our friends and family attending. Vern understood where we were coming from. He had the foresight to mention that the song we selected for our first dance was long and if we wanted to cut it short all he needed was a look for a nice tasteful fade. The day of the wedding Vern was not over the top except where it was needed (our introduction), kept the volume to where everyone had no need to shout to talk to one another, orchestrated all the toasts...and some extra toasts, and kept the music pumping to entertain both dancers and non dancers alike. We would love to hire Vern again but we both agree that our wedding was perfect and could ever be duplicated. We can't thank him enough! He is the best! PS- We were especially touched by the custom CD he made for us.
DJ Greyhound emceed our wedding in May and we were so happy with his services. He is such a cool, classy guy and always has such a reassuring demeanor. His price point was even a little less than some other DJs we interviewed, and his contract terms were incredibly fair and generous compared to others. On the day of, we had to move our ceremony inside at the last minute, and he didn't skip a beat rearranging things and accommodating the new set up. So many guests complemented us on our music and his announcing style, and he did a great job keeping the dance floor packed. He also made us a CD of some of our wedding music to take home at the end of the night. We would most definitely recommend DJ Greyhound to others.
Vern did a great job with our ceremony and reception, and we really had the dance floor jumping at the end of the night! He was extremely responsive and professional in all the lead-up to the event and played all the music that we requested- he also took requests from the floor (which we had previously indicated was fine) and the guests loved it!
We contacted Vern about setting up a meeting for our wedding and had time set up later that week. He immediately impressed us with his laid-back style and enthusiasm for what he does. He walked us through the contract and answered all of our questions. Prior to the wedding, Vern helped us to organize our timeline for our reception. Vern had the best contract of any of our vendors, including moneyback clauses in the event of a no-show to keep us at ease. We are glad that Vern showed, though, because he kept our guests on the dance floor all night long. We requested party music, with very few specific requests, and Vern made all the right choices. We got so many compliments on our DJ and we would hire or refer him in an instant. If you want your guests dancing all night long, DJ Greyhound is the way to go.
