Our experience with Fingersnappin was distinctly average given some of the reviews I read. Burt was indeed excellent throughout the set-up and planning for our event, but he was not our actual DJ. My husband and I had spent a lot of time putting together some specific instructions for our DJ, who we needed to help facilitate the move downstairs to dinner, all of the specialty dances, etc. At the reception, it seemed she had not read any of our instructions beforehand as I needed to point them out to her on the form and explain what we needed done. She did a great job playing music, the dance floor was packed, but if you have any special instructions and Burt is not your DJ, know your instructions might not really be followed.
If you're looking for a fantastic DJ, look no further than Fingersnappin Entertainment!! Burt was like working with a family member! We immediately felt comfortable with him, and knew we were in excellent hands. We also had a photo booth through them, and everyone absolutely loved it. You just can't go wrong with Burt and Fingersnappin! We would use them again in a heart beat!!
I could not imagine having anyone but Burt be apart of our wedding day! He was so helpful during the planning process and eager to make sure everything was just the way we wanted. Our guests absolutely loved him and had a blast. The photobooth was a huge hit and we love looking back at all of the pictures our guest left us! Finger Snappin' Entertainment was one of our best decisions!!!
They managed my trolley and photo booth. Both were perfect and seamlessly executed. Probably some of the biggest highlights for me, my husband and our guests.
If you are considering FingerSnappin' Entertainment for your wedding or next shindig, go ahead and book them! Burt is awesome! He made everything so easy, had some great ideas to keep the dance party rocking and made sure to play our favorite tunes. Go with these guys - you won't regret it!
Thank you to the amazingly friendly Ms.Cooper at Finger Snappin Ent! She was so friendly and awesome! We appreciate her sweet attitude and hard work on Saturday!
Hiring Burt was one of the BEST decisions we made for our wedding. I was an out-of-town bride and he was the first vendor I hired. Later, when I was back in town, I met with him a week before the wedding and we went through everything from start to finish--it was such a thorough meeting, I felt totally alleviated of any stress I might have had before. We all know, a DJ can make or break your wedding. I felt so confident in Burt after our meeting and just couldn't wait for our wedding day. We also had his photo booth services for our wedding, which our guests loved! On top of that, we got uplighting and a personalized light display with our names, and light show for when the crowd started dancing. The uplights were a LIFESAVER, since our main lighting vendor was a no show. Yes, it was hard for me to believe, too, since lighting was one of the most important things to me in creating the ambiance I envisioned. Without Burt, I would have been completely letdown, but because of him, I could relax on the day of our wedding. He was just so professional and he got the crowd to laugh, dance, and he did an amazing job of introducing our wedding party and ourselves. Also, my husband and I were on the fence of whether or not to do a bouquet and garter toss and after meeting with Burt, there was a genius idea that got EVERYONE on the floor to try to catch those things! It was a big hit and one of the most memorable aspects of the evening. I highly recommend Burt to those looking for a fun, professional Master of Ceremonies/DJ, that knows how to read a crowd, make sure guests are having fun, and lead the evening without being overbearing. Absolutely wonderful and so fun to work with! He is worth every penny--and it's true, your guests won't remember a lot of details of your wedding after, but they WILL remember the entertainment, so it's worth it to get the best!
Phil was our DJ at our wedding and he did a great job. We have received many compliments about the play list we had for the reception. My bride and I provided a very detailed list of what was to be played and Phil stuck to it, which was exactly what we wanted.
I gave this company a 0. Burt, the dj we booked and payed for over a year before our wedding never showed. He just never showed. Burt instead did not send some one else from his company he sent some cut rate teenager to dj our very expensive wedding. The person he sent didn't even work for his company. The dj he sent was the worst dj I have ever seen and had the same 30 songs on loop. I have not to this day received an explanation,apology, or money compensation. This company ruined my wedding that I planned and saved for for two years. I have emailed and called and so has my wedding planner with no communication from him yet. I can not believe some one would do this to someone on their wedding day. And yes, we did pay in full and even had a meeting with him in person 5 days before our wedding. I would never recommend him to anyone. Thank God for my wedding planner!
We do apologize on your recent wedding. You sent us a email on Sept 30th, 2014 and today is Oct 1st, 2014. So, you haven't even given us a 24 hours to respond to your email. Also, you were never promised that Burt would be your DJ and Burt does charge extra for his services. You got 6 hours of DJing (including ceremony) for $950. If Burt was your DJ, it would be around the $1,200 mark. When you met with Burt, you showed up with the meeting with a sheet of paper that majority of the paper was your Dad's requests. When Burt ask you where the 13 page questionnaire was, you response to him was "didn't know I was suppose to fill this out". We sent you the questionnaire twice over the course of a year to make sure that you have this filled out for the DJ. So, yes the DJ was a little unprepared, because he didn't know what you guys like and he was playing that was working for the crowd. Once again, we do apologize for the miscommunication.
Trolley service was great, DJ listened to our requests and worked with us when we constantly changed our mind regarding music preferences.
Our package included the DJ, photobooth, and officiant, along with lighting etc. I have broken out my review based on those categories:
DJ - Nick was amazing! He did such a great job and we got a lot of compliments on our music choices. He kept it upbeat and was very professional.
Photobooth - The photobooth was a huge hit and also doubled as our guestbook. At the end, you also get a USB drive of everyone's photos. Highly recommend!
Officiant - This brought the score down for Responsiveness and Value. Our officiant Christy Loftin - who is contracted out - was a no-show for both the rehearsal and reception without any communication involving why and to give us a heads up that someone else would be officiating. We did not find out until another officiant showed up at the rehearsal and informed us. While the new officiant was nice, it was clear during the ceremony that he absolutely did zero homework as he said the EXACT same thing as the reader. When you get married, part of what you pay is for a higher level of service. This unfortunately did not happen and I would recommend that FingerSnappin go with another officiant.
Burt did a wonderful job at my niece's wedding at the beach clubhouse at Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort last August. It poured down but it really didn't matter because Burt took charge and created a whole lot of fun for the the newlyweds and their guests. He is a consummate entertainer and really knows how to get the party started and keep it going until the very end. Full of innovative suggestions, he added so much to the festivities. The photo booth was a Huge hit and the ready to go photo album was great. Burt's assistant was very efficient and kept those pictures coming. Old and young alike were on the dance floor all evening and a highlight was the closing song, when everyone formed a circle and sang "Take Me Home Country Roads". All in all, a very heartfelt and joyous celebration of family and friends coming together to see the start of a brand new family. I recommend this company highly.
If you think you need the most expensive DJ to have a great party, you couldn't be more wrong. They have incredible prices and did an amazing job for our wedding. The music was great and even had the groom's grandfather up and dancing. We opted for the DJ and the photobooth, and you absolutely will not find another company offering these services for a better price. The photobooth came with a ton of extras-- double prints, unlimited prints, magnetic holders for the guests, a photo guest book, and digital copies of all the pictures. Burt and Charlie were the best!
We had Nick as our wedding DJ and had an absolute blast at our reception. Nick was very professional and kept the crowd (young and old) dancing all night long! Nick took the time to incorporate all of our music selections that we requested and really made did an amazing job announcing our wedding party and kept the night moving smoothly! We really appreciated Nick's positive energy and taste for music, and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Thanks again Nick for am AMAZING and unforgettable evening on the dance floor!
Burt was fantastic with making sure all the music was planned and what we wanted. He was very professional. The photo booth was well organized and everyone loved it. They brought in great props and the photo booth prop table was always perfectly organized. We live out of state and planned the wedding by phone and email. Everything went as planned and hiring them was one the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process. My husband and I both highly recommend FingerSnappin' Entertainment.
We used Burt for my wedding as the DJ and rented their photo booth. Burt and the photobooth attendant were very professional. Our guests LOVED the photo booth and Burt was the best DJ and even danced with us! He also did the music for the outdoor ceremony which flowed beautifully. The only complaint I had was it took them a while to e-mail or call back. Other than that, we didn't have any issues. You can't go wrong with Fingersnappin.
