Jarrod was perfect! He met with us and made sure we were all on the same page. Throughout the night he made sure we knew when things were taking place and what our guests were requesting. He definitely provided some sanity to me, the bride which was much appreciated. We loved the interaction with our guests as well, just as we asked!
Alicia, it was a pleasure DJing for you and your now bigger family. They had great taste in music and that helped to keep the energy up all night. Your infectious smiles brought sunshine on a little bit of a cloudy day and your guests were glued to the dance floor. Best of luck to you two and please don't hesitate to call us again.
We hired Metro DC DJs & Entertainment to DJ and Emcee our wedding. We worked specifically with Jarrod, and he was simply phenomenal. He was always easy to get in contact with, and receptive to our needs. We have very eclectic and widespread tastes in music, and he was able to find uncommon songs on very short notice. He was super flexible with our busy schedules and never said no.
Metro DC DJs has an online portal for clients to create playlists and do-not-play lists, which is followed very closely. Jarrod, being extensively experienced in the wedding business, was even kind enough to aid us in planning out the schedule and order of events for our reception, since we were planning it ourselves.
We opted to have him Emcee the event as well, and he did an absolutely wonderful job of engaging the crowd and inspiring dancing and even some impromptu events.
Jarrod is an incredibly dedicated and hardworking guy, and you can tell he just loves what he does. He loves weddings, sports events, and other functions. He loves meeting people and socializing. He's a fun guy. Truth be told, I'm honestly amazed by his work-ethic. He DJed and Emceed our wedding, on his feet the whole time, with medical walking boots on BOTH FEET! He had a broken ankle and a broken foot, but still made the time to meet with us several times leading up to the event, and never once made any complaints or excuses. He's extremely professional, but very laid-back and just fun to deal with.
Pricing was very reasonable for the quality of his work. We opted for the full package, minus the gobo, which included uplighting and night-club atmosphere type lighting as well. Are there less expensive options available? Yes. Are there more expensive options available? Yes. Do you get the absolute best value for your money with Metro DC DJs? ABSOLUTELY! They will absolutely be my first line for any future events that I need DJ/Entertainment. I would absolutely recommend that you give them a shot!
Thank you for the kind words. You wedding was a unique and fun wedding where you put so many personal touches on everything, you truly made it your own. The playlists made it easy to create the atmosphere you wanted and your choice of the venue made it fun to create the nightclub theme. Even getting to choose a couple of songs for you, the smiles still come back when I hear those songs. We need to plan a 5-year anniversary and have an even bigger party!
My daughter's wedding was perfect! In large part due to Jarod's organization, hard work and attention to detail. We were all thrilled with the outcome!
Karen, it was a pleasure getting to work with you and your family and look forward to doing it again in the future. Your guests were terrific and Sweet Yonder did a fantastic job, even with the shift indoors! Thank you again for choosing us and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you in the future!
Jarrod was an AMAZING dj. There was a power outage for a few seconds because of the storm, but he kept the audience engaged and humored when the power came back on by playing hilarious songs.. "When the lights go out." I am so happy Jarrod was able to play for our wedding and make it such a memorable day! He came early and also played at the ceremony and he coordinated with our wedding singer. It was such a fantastic day and I can't say enough great things about Jarrod's expertise, professionalism and eagerness to please the bride :)
If there was ever a time for me to be able to use some of the situational music I'm know for, it was for your wedding!! The rain, the lights going out, just allowed for too many situational songs. And your guests were the perfect crowd to get the little touches. Loved the standing ovation for playing Journey's "Lights" when the lights came back on. So many highlights from this wedding, it's hard to find a dozen!!! Congratulations and thank you for asking me to DJ your wedding.
Jarrod did a great job! He is affordable, listens to your needs for the event, and is very reliable. We trusted him with our big day and he was there on time. He did a very good job of reading the atmosphere to juggle all the songs we love and wanted to hear.
This was a fun wedding reception held in a unique atmosphere. Everything about the facility screamed elegance, but the brick walls and columns and high ceilings had us worried about echo. There wasn't any. The guests were dancing to everything and had a great time. It was an honor to be the DJ for this wonderful wedding reception.
My sister just got married, about six months after our wedding. While attending her wedding, I couldn't count the number of guests who came up to us and complemented us on our DJ, Jarrod from Metro DC DJs. We hired Jarred after reading reviews for Metro DC online, and we could not have been happier. By far, the most compliments we got from our wedding guests were for our DJ. He handled the music during the ceremony, the dinner, and the reception, as well as all of the lighting (which is a HUGE convenience and money saver).
Months before the wedding began, Jarrod met with us in order to get an idea of the kind of reception we were planning and what kind of wedding we wanted. He took note of the kind of music we wanted (and didn't want), how we wanted the wedding to be structured, and just about every other detail you could think of. A couple weeks before the wedding, you meet again to go over the more minute details of the wedding. Jarrod took careful note of exactly how we wanted everything to play out, and he even had great suggestions about topics other than DJing and music that we would not have thought of without him. For example, he suggested that my wife do a fake bouquet toss right before the real one so that the photographer could both get a picture of her throwing the flower and also get a picture of the ladies receiving the flowers.
Jarrod also did an incredible job introducing the wedding party, pre-luding the speeches, and explaining the Tea Ceremony (a Chinese wedding tradition) to our guests. He was witty and engaging, and many of our guests commented on his sense of humor.
Ultimately, I didn't know what to expect when I was interviewing DJs for our wedding, but I feel that we could not have made a better selection. We have a few friends who are in the process of planning their own DC weddings, and we have convinced them all to go with DC DJs.
Jarrod and Metro DC DJs was by far one of the best vendor choices we made for our wedding. Jarrod took the time to get to know us and what our musical styles were and custom fit those to our wedding. He even went above and beyond with a custom baseball themed bridal party intro. We couldn't have asked for better services throughout the entire evening! All of our guests raved about the reception and the music.
Greg, thank you for choosing us to DJ your wedding. Your guests had some great requests and kept the dance floor packed all night. The eclectic mix of your musical choices was fun to work with, and getting to "announce" baseball-style again was fun.
Jarrod was the DJ at our daughter's wedding and did a fantastic job! He kept the dance floor packed all night playing all the songs that my daughter and her husband had planned with him. His sound system and lights are top quality. I would highly recommend him for any event that you may need a DJ or Emcee.
DJ Jarrod was nothing short of fantastic while working with us! He drove out of his way to meet us and was very flexible given his already busy schedule. He was very thorough and detailed in explaining how things would go and the site he provided us to help him out better was very useful and made things much easier on both of us as far as picking music/songs for different points of the evening. Our guests had a great time, loved the music, and we all greatly appreciated his enthusiasm and entertainment throughout our reception. We could not have been happier with the experience and working with Jarrod and would most definitely recommend him for any event!
Ross, thank you for having me DJ your wedding. It's was a pleasure getting to know you and your now wife and hope to see you two again in the future. We seem to travel in the same packs so I have the feeling you'll be enjoying us again. Your wedding night was awesome, and you couldn't have asked for a better setting, weather or ending to the night.
Jarrod was amazing! He really kept our wedding guests moving on the dance floor! We had a smaller wedding and were concerned that the dance floor would be empty and we would have trouble getting our older crowd up and moving; we had no such problem! Everyone danced the night away and had such a great time. Jarrod really rocked our wedding!!!!
Kristen, your wedding will always stand out because of the special choreographed first dance you shared, and the fireworks at the end of the night. You couldn't have planned a better ending and it was a great pleasure to be the DJ for your wedding and reception.
Our DJ was great! He was open and willing to hear our ideas and personalize the ceremony and reception to us! Everyone was up and dancing and never a lull in entertainment! He kept everything going nicely.
I would recommend him to all of my friends!
Metro DC DJs & Entertainment is is a outstanding DJ company under Jarrod. Jarrod not only played current music, but also gauged the crowed quite well to play an eclectic mix of music that kept up the energy of the reception. He has a great personality and keeps the party going, he puts the cares and concerns of the customer as priority #1.
Jarrod worked our wedding and we still have people talking about his work two weeks after the fact. He is very outgoing, flexible and respectful to the wants and needs of the customer. Look nowhere else, he's the best!
Ashley, your family and friends were having such a great time, they even continued dancing to the "calm down" music at the end of the night. They didn't want to leave and it was an honor to say that I was there for your wedding. Having seen you and your brothers grow over the years, I was so proud to see you and Ryan get married, and to entertain at your reception. He got his big "introduction" and you had the party of the year!
Great DJ for a wedding!! Jarrod had everyone on the dance floor! Played a variety of music and listened to what you wanted and didn't want to be played. Everyone had a great time!
Jenelle, you and Brian were awesome to work with. You knew exactly what you wanted and that made it easy to provide you a great experience. The gobo and uplighting you asked us to provide gave guests that "wow" factor as soon as the doors opened. Thank you for allowing us to entertain your guests on your big day!
Jarrod was great! He played every song we had on our list and even played a song that my husband had recorded for our first dance!
Robin, it was a pleasure working with you and your family. You were right about the site being a little different, though it worked really well and was really unique. To find out that Jackson Browne performed at the church you were married in was interesting. This was a truly memorable reception in that you could not tell where one family ended and the other began, everyone seemed like one big family the entire day. Thank you for allowing me to entertain you, your new husband, and your guests!
We were very pleased with Jarrod's services! He provided everything from DJ services, emceeing, lighting and sound for our wedding. Since Jarrod had not been in our venue before he asked for a walk-through which made us very comfortable with his professionalism and willingness to be thorough and prepared.
Jarrod was great about remembering the little details of what point to start a song on, when to hit play, and how we wanted our emcee services. We requested he not be "in your face" and speaking often which he did a great job of doing. We also needed him to ask questions for our newlywed game which went great. Jarrod has a strong, booming voice which is perfect for his profession and services--the intros were fabulous. Our siblings are so impressed they are looking into hiring him as well. I was also very pleased that Jarrod honored our play/do not play lists. When guests requested something from the "do not play" list (repeatedly) he honored our wishes and only played it when I caved to my guests and gave the ok--he definitely puts the bride and groom fist.
The lighting that came with our package makes Jarrod a wonderful value. We are very happy with the price we paid and what we got for it. The uplighting was beautiful, professional, and discreet. There were no cords around the guest areas and the lights were bright and went up high (our venue had really tall ceilings). We also purchased a gobo which guests loved and was a beautiful final touch to the space.
I only took off a slight bit from the overall score based on some emails that never reached Jarrod due to email errors on his end. However, he came to our home to go over everything and ensure we were comfortable with all final details for the wedding once the error of the missed emails was caught.
Thank you for being a great DJ, Jarrod. We will be sure to recommend you!
Tina, working with you on creating your wedding and wedding day was pure joy right from the start. I look forward to working with your family in the future and getting to see you as a guest!
I could not have imagined having a better DJ at my wedding. From the time we decided to pick Jarrod as the DJ I was completely at ease. He kept in contact with us during the whole planning process, and the website was so easy to use to help with planning the event. You can tell he loves what he does because he is so amazing at it. I was so comfortable on my wedding day because I knew Jarrod had everything under control. Everything was timed perfectly and everyone had so much fun. All of my guests commented on what a great job he did!
Thank you again for everything. You truly are the best DJ around town :)
I can not say enough great things about Jarrod!! He is absolutely amazing!!
Gina, having a bride and groom who love to have a great time is always great. Getting to watch your husband be the dance starter, well that's a rarity! Your descriptions about the facility really made it easy since we had to use two complete set-ups for cocktail hour and the ballroom. The one thing that I'll always remember, was watching you two take the plunge...literally...at the end of the night into the hotel pool!
