These guys are the biggest scum in the industry. SOOOO RUDE and UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!! They will rip you off and only provide the fattest, most disgusting looking pigs on the universe to be a part of your special day--- don't let it happen to you! Stay away from the Weddingsetgo DJs!!!!! Take it from me!!
Bill is scum, worst DJ company I've ever had an experience with.
So unprofessional. Do not use them.
One person you should never piss off is the bride to be. If you are looking to be more stressed and miserable with your wedding, call weddingsetgo. That's one thing these guys are good for.
Do not use them! You will regret it!
Terrible service. Horrible communication. They put on a great act at the bridal shows, be careful what you get yourself into.
The DJ really made the whole reception. Billy was the perfect mix of involved and laid back. Everyone had a great time!
As my husband stated, of all the dj's he has seen, he has been far the best. Tom had great suggestions for entrance songs and was quite flexible - including being patient with getting last minute (day before the wedding) song requests and changing the order of the songs to coincide with an impromtu speech. Tom was not intrusive at all and new how to select songs that kept people on the dance floor. Several people commented on how professional he was and how much they enjoyed him. I was also impressed with his ability to include a diverse range of music - swing, country, alternative, classic rock, and contemporary christian music.
My one pet peeve is that we had requested that all of the slow songs come from a list we provided (they were all the wedding songs of friends and family members). There were far more on the list than could be played in one night. Some slow songs that were not on the list were played while two key ones were left out.
Outside of this one pet peeve, I have no complaints and would highly recommend him.
The only thing positive in our experience with Be Our Guest was the manager Danny. Friendly, personable, and accomodating, I thought working with one of his DJ's would be a pleasure. Then we got assigned to work with ERIC MILLER. WHAT A NIGHTMARE. Getting him to call us when he was supposed to was like pulling teeth. We finally had one conversation with him, where he wasn't at all accomodating to my husbands requests, and he then said he'd call the week of the wedding to go over details, pronunciations, etc. GUESS WHO NEVER CALLED US? When we called the company THE DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING saying he never called, they said he was very busy. He was very busy? HE WAS VERY BUSY??? I'm sorry, but if you are so busy that you can't provide minimal standards of service, you shouldn't be being booked for jobs. I then told management that he should call me before 3pm if at all possible, but we never heard from him, either before or after 3 o'clock.
Had he actually bothered to call us (or call us back),as it was noted in the contract that he would, maybe he would have bothered to ask what we wanted played when our bridal party came out, or when the bouquet was thrown, or even when we,THE BRIDE AND GROOM ourselves, entered our own reception! But he didn't. Eric just played what suited his own personal tastes. After all, who cares what we wanted for our wedding? We're just the bride and groom; it's not like we're as important as the DJ or his own personal agenda.
And had he called as he was supposed to, maybe he would also have known that we didn't want cheesy, and irritating table games to be played UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, let alone while people were in the middle of eating their salads, that we didn't want the party songs played right at the beginning of the night when everyone is first coming in and no one has any intention (or nearly enough alcohol in them) to dance to the high-energy party songs that should be played only in the last two to three hours of a wedding, that when we said we didn't want a wedding arch upon our entrance, for him to completely ignore us and start instructing our bridal party on how to make an arch so that we and the wedding coordinator literally had to yell at him "We JUST said NO ARCH!" He also would have known that the last thing we wanted was cheesy "Fight Bells" ringing when we entered the reception. And maybe, just maybe, I wouldn't have be on the verge of tears at how obnoxious our DJ was before we even began our wedding reception.
But I would have to say that the worst move of all was him starting a table game, which I had told management upfront upon booking that I DID NOT WANT under ANY circumstances, I went up to him and asked what he was doing, saying that we SPECIFICALLY said we wanted MINIMAL MC-ING and NO games. He said he was doing a "That's Amore" game, because I noted that I liked the song. Just because I wanted a song played at my wedding does not mean I want the company we've contracted with to ignore our "NO GAMES" request because he happens to know and like a game that goes to that song. The concept of playing a song without making everyone play a stupid game while hearing it is to me, not rocket science. But since he had already interupted everyone's meal and all of our guests were now standing up as instructed and just looking at each other with expressions of "Why on earth is this guy making us stand up just as we sat down to eat", I told him to just finish whatever he had started as fast as possible and not to do anything like it again. In response, not only did he not shorten the game, he actually extended it into a CONGA LINE!!! I was so infuriated that I had to LEAVE MY OWN WEDDING RECEPTION, and within 10 minutes of it's start to boot. I was upset, my bridesmaids had to come comfort me, the coordinator had to convince my husband not to deck this man in the middle of our wedding, and my guests felt akward and confused as to why the bride, groom, and bridal party had all suddenly disappeared, which only added feelings of guilt for having had to leave my guests right at the start of my reception. This DJ was continuously ruining all of those perfect wedding reception moments that I had dreamed of since I was a little girl. I was heartbroken.
Throughout the night, my husband, bridesmaids, and the wedding coordinator all had to talk to him at different times to instruct him on what he was not to do, a constant source of frustration and annoyance that would have been completely unnecessary had Eric just (1) COMMUNICATED EFFECTIVELY WITH WITH MANAGEMENT ON WHAT I SPECIFICALLY ASKED FOR UPON BOOKING, and (2) CALLED US THE WEEK BEFORE THE WEDDING TO HAVE THE ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT WE DID AND DID NOT WANT for the one and only wedding we will ever get to experience. On top of all of this, he even unbelievably played a song that was on the "DO NOT PLAY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES" list that we faxed over weeks before. There are important reasons that people put certain songs on DO NOT PLAY lists. So glad he ignored this and brought up painful memories right in the middle of my weddingf receprion. Additionally, he either didn't play or must have only played all six or seven songs we specifically requested to hear (because they were incredibly meaningful to us) while we were out taking pictures, because both the groom and I missed all but two of them.
Finally, at the end of the entire fiasco, since we were advised by Danny in management that we were not supposed to pay until after services were rendered because Be Our Guest Entertainment guarantees our complete satisfaction (ha!), I told Eric we weren't paying him until we heard back from the message we had to leave Danny mid-wedding about the attrocious experience we had had. Upon hearing this, Eric actually had the GAUL to ask me what it was we weren't satisfied with because, get this, "you didn't mention anything during the wedding." WHAT? WHAT?!?! We didn't MENTION ANYTHING? Is this guy KIDDING with this?!? I was absolutely DISGUSTED with him at this point and for fear of being so angry I would cry or punch him in the face, I told him he was to deal directly with my husband and that was no longer to address men at all.
I know it must seem like I am a bridezilla for how angry I am, but I promise you, I am so laid-back, friends, family, and even OTHER VENDORS actually poked fun at me for being so mellow and relaxed. So believe me when I say that I am telling you this with all sincerity and reasonableness: ERIC MILLER RUINED THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR WEDDING. And although we are trying to be as all-around positive as possible about our wedding (because who wants to let go of their dream of having a wonderful wedding?), both my husband and I are furious and heartbroken that we used Be Our Guest Entertainment. We will NEVER get back the moments that Eric Miller took from us, and no bride and groom should ever have to feel like that about the day that they have planned for a year and dreamed about for a lifetime.
THEY SAY THAT FOOD AND MUSIC MAKE A WEDDING. WELL, LET ME TELL YOU................ I COULDNT HAVE ASKED FOR A MORE PERFECT DJ THEN BILL. MY HUSBAND AND I ARE KIND "STUCK IN THE 80'S" WITH THE FREESTYLE MUSIC. WE BOTH HAVE OUR DIFFERENT LIKES AND DISLIKES WITH MUSIC ALSO. WHEN IT CAME TIME TO SIT DOWN AND HAVE OUR MEETING TO PICK OUT OUR IMPORTANT SONGS HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT WE WANTED WHEN SOME OF MY HUSBANDS "CRAZY" REQUEST ALLL WE KNEW WERE SOME OF THE LYRICS. HE FOUND THEM 1,2,3 !!! IT WAS AMAZING. FROM THE TIME THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF MR AND MRS ALL THE WAY TO THE END TO FLOOR WAS PACKED!!! HE PLAYED THE OLDIES, 70'S,80'S,TODAYS, AND EVEN ALITTLE COUNTRY. HE EVEN ACCOMIDATED MY HUSBANDS STRANGE REQUEST LIKE....TOBY KEITH AS GOOD AS I ONCE WAS FOR MY FATHER AND DAUGHTER 2 ND DANCE. (AS A RUNNING JOKE) THIS WAS HELD AT THE END OF THE NITE SO THAT TELLS YOU HOW INTERESTING AND FUN THE PARTY WAS. FOR THE PRICE A IT WAS MORE THEN I COULD EVER ASK FOR.
BILL, THANK YOU FOR YOUR HIGH ENERGY AND UP BEAT PERSONANILTY! YOU MADE OUR HALLOWEEN WEDDING THE BEST!!! BY BAR NONE YOU ARE THE BEST ENTERTAINMENT!!!!!!! "BE OUR GUEST" IS SO YOU!!
BILLY & GERRIE
We used Mel. He had everyone (including my husband...who never dances) up and moving the whole night! EVERYONE had a blast!
Not the cheapest DJ and we never would have hired DJ/MC combo except Mel was the DJ at my brother's wedding and we knew how amazing he was and decided he was worth it. And it totally was. Stress free, perfect show. Played the songs I wanted and none of my "do not plays" (but I didn't have a lot of either). It was such a great party our dance floor was packed the whole time. Awesome.
I knew exactly what I wanted for music and that was exactly what I got!!! I would highly recommend Be Our Guest DJ for any occasion!!!!
Eric was an excellent DJ! He really played a variety of music and was a great entertainer. He really kept everyone moving and having a great time!
Great DJ Company. We had Paul DJ our wedding. He kept the party going and made sure to play all the music that we specifically requested. We have all great memories of their service.
