As a musician myself, CJ was the best choice!
He mixes songs incredibly well so that there's no mismatch in beats/rhythms - this was the biggest deal for me. There's been a lot of DJs I've encountered where they'll have clunky transitions, or they'll play the beginning parts of songs where there's no beat, which makes people leave the dance floor because of the 'downtime.' CJ made sure that did not happen!
In the early stages of planning, he will send you a spreadsheet template that has everything he needs from you. I gave him Spotify playlists that I had compiled myself for cocktail hour, for dinner, and for the reception dancing. (Note: he does use non-explicit versions of songs, so if you happen to have explicit versions, he'll find the clean version for you, or do the mixing well enough that expletives are not heard!).
I did not hire a wedding planner and did all the planning myself, and CJ was actually instrumental in helping me with the event flow. He made the effort to track me down to make sure my husband and I were ready for the next thing in the event before he announced them, from party entrances to special dances (e.g. father/daughter or mother/son dances) to speeches.
Our wedding was 5:30pm-10pm, and though we only booked him for cocktail hour (6-7pm) and reception (7-10:30pm), he let us use his mics for the ceremony beforehand. His mics were high quality - NO feedback, static, or poor volume balance, which was critical during our vows and the speeches. Our cocktail hour was outdoors on a rooftop, and the reception was indoors, and he was able to set up for both areas for a seamless transition.
The two vendors we could not stop raving about were our photographer/videographer and our DJ. They will make or break your wedding experience, in my opinion. Hire CJ & Entertainment Excellence for your DJ/emcee services! Everyone was impressed with how smoothly our wedding went, and although I'd like to take credit for having planned the wedding myself, I know that a lot of it had to do with CJ and his event pacing. I'm extremely happy with Entertainment Excellence and CJ's services.
