We hired "No Macarena" DJ & Custom Music Service for our recent wedding, and we could not have had a better experience. Our wedding planner (an alum from the live music production industry) recommended Kim at "No Macarena" to us, and we were so happy with her services. After all the more traditional wedding elements, we wanted a great dance party where all of our guests would have a great time, and that's exactly what we got. All communication with Kim was punctual, friendly and professional, and she was able to adeptly incorporate all (seriously, all) of our song requests, even the ones that were somewhat obscure or unusual. She took the time to have a detailed conversation with us ahead of time to clarify the genres of music we were going for, and she made sure to discuss any specific song requests that needed a place in the flow of the dancing. We landed on a mix of '70s disco and '80s-'90s hip hop, with some current dance hits mixed in, based on the age ranges of our guests and our preferences. She nailed this mixture perfectly and every song had a combination of the younger and older guests all dancing and singing along. She avoided all the stereotypical wedding songs we thought were overplayed, and of course avoided all the line dancing songs we didn't want, too. Even though I was the bride and probably should have been visiting with guests more throughout the night, I was on the dance floor all night instead. I couldn't get over the song selection and how she knew to play certain songs that we hadn't even necessarily discussed in our phone conversation, especially those that had personal meaning to us even if they weren't necessarily crowd favorites. "No Macarena" truly made our wedding special to us and a ton of fun for our guests - we highly recommend Kim and her team to anyone in the Philly area looking for a DJ. We can't thank you enough, Kim!Sent on 10/22/2017

Everyone was dancing!
No Macarena did a great job at keeping our guests on the dance floor! The night was slow at first, with only a few people on the floor, but he switched up the music and soon everyone was out there dancing. The music was great, up until the very end of the night. We would recommend going with No Macarena if you want good, dancing music without the hokey, old fashioned, "no macarena" type songs!

Perfect match for a music nut!
We absolutely loved working with Kim at No Macarena. I am a music nut and I have pretty particular music tastes that I really wanted that reflected in our wedding. On the flip side, we also wanted the music at the reception to be fun and accessible for everyone. After speaking with Kim on the phone just once, we knew she'd be the one who'd be able to do this! She took on all my specifics and requests (admittedly there were a lot!) and asked a lot of great questions to get an understanding of what the guests at our wedding would enjoy hearing. She was organized, easy to get in touch with, and provided a perfect musical backdrop for our day.
"No Macarena" DJ & Custom Music Service is the best in the business. While other DJs play a canned playlist that's the same at every wedding (I should know, since I shoot one nearly every weekend,) No Macarena's set list is completely custom, and completely planned by you. This gives every party that No Macarena hosts it's own uniquely crafted identity, which is a great thing to say about a DJ. Not only that, their hosts are unobtrusive yet remain "in charge" during those key moments when the party needs some structure. Highly recommended!!!
Kim Alexander's DJ Music Service "No Macarena" is simply the best!
We have worked with Kim at No Macarena for years and she is the best! She has great insight and knowledge of music and knows just what songs to play to make an event perfect. Kim is not only a true professional, but she's really cool, too!
