Everyone loved the DJ!

We have been to several weddings where there would be points no one would be dancing. That was not the case at all with Crescendo. The dance floor was packed all night. They knew what to play and when, and the drums added so much more to the experience. The were very professional from the beginning to the end, and everyone kept saying how awesome they were. If you're having a wedding in the Delaware, Maryland, or southern PA area you need to seriously consider making Crescendo your DJ. I couldn't recommend them enough.

First and Best Choice We Made for Our Wedding

Even before my wife and I got married, I told her I wanted a DJ and a drummer at the wedding. We'd been to one before and it blew my mind, and fortunately she too was a convert! Once we locked in the venue in Delaware and began searching for vendors, I soon found Douglass and Jason at Crescendo DJ and Drums, a Delaware-based DJ/drummer combo.

Douglass was extremely responsive, and after an initial call to discuss the usual stuff (dates, location, etc.), I knew we had found our team. Douglass works closely with you to figure out the vibe of your wedding and what kind of songs you're hoping to hear on your big day. Being from South Texas, for our wedding it was critical that we play at least a couple of tracks by Selena and UGK, and Douglass and Jason made sure that happened!

For those of you who've never had the opportunity to experience this in person, I can totally understand your hesitancy. The first thing people would ask us when we told them we'd have a DJ and a drummer was, "...interesting! I can't really picture it." I played drums in high school and college, so I appreciate seeing a drummer like Jason killing it to my favorite songs. But during and after the wedding, these same people were coming up to us saying, "I know I said I wasn't sure about the DJ and drummer before, but this is amazing!" Crescendo DJ and Drums combines the best of both worlds: the intensity that comes with live bands performing in front of an audience with the freedom and flexibility to play a variety of music that only a DJ can really bring to the table.

Our wedding went off without a hitch, and Douglass and Jason played a HUGE part in making our night one for us, but more importantly our guests, to remember. Choosing Crescendo DJ and Drums as our music vendor was, hands down, one of the BEST wedding decisions we made this past year. 11/10, 5 stars, no notes, can't recommend enough!

They were amazing!

Crescendo did an amazing job at our reception and were amazing to work with through the stressful COVID times! All of our guests loved their music and raved about having the dj/drummer combination! Would definitely hire again!
