7 Reviews for Academy DJs
Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
DJ was very flexible and all of my guests said they were pleased with his selections. Their website lets you pick songs you definitely want, would like to hear and definitely don't want to hear but we lweft most of that to his discretion. They are based out of florida but have djs in Ohio which is where my wedding was. Overall it was a success.
Richard Barker of Academy DJs was the DJ at our reception. He was awesome! When he didn't have the father-daughter dance song I had picked, he simply said "I just have to purchase it. No problem!" Every other song we requested was available. He was very professional and made sure that all of our guests had fun. He kept the party going even when most of our guests had left.
We also paid for LED uplighting and a name-in-lights display. He set up the gorgeous uplighting behind the cake, head table, bars, and along the walls. It was prefect! The name-in-lights was on the floor during dinner and our first dances. Later, he displayed it on the wall behind the head table. We loved it! The design plate for the name-in-lights is now ours to keep.
We also got a photo booth w/ scrapbook (rented out by Academy DJs through Photo Booth Florida). It was so much fun! And it was all for a great price!
We read some amazing reviews on Richard, then read over his website adn loved how he expressed that even though your wedding is all about the bride adn groom you want to make sure the part is dancing all night. Which it was, his music selection was perfect, we did put a few songs on our must play list adn belive it or not those were the songs less people danced to but with everything else everyone was up and out of their seats having a good time. Its obvious he loves what he does adn really understands how to get the party going, he as great to work with and super fun! Highly recommended.
