Dancing in the rain!

Ryan performed at two of my family member’s weddings and after dancing at a wedding of his I knew I wanted him for ours! But I didn’t know that even working with him behind the scenes was care free as well. What really stood out to me about Ryan was that he made everything so easy for me while planning. All I had to do was proved songs and schedule, things we did or did not want and he literally took care of the rest. He worked with us on an out door venue and set up multiple speaker locations. Not to mention it POURED DOWN RAIN but he kept the party going and alive all night long. It didn’t stop us. Ryan has been a part of my families special day’s and now is a part of mine and I wouldn’t think twice about another DJ.

My husband and I had our Wedding in Fairfax, VA and our experience with RUP was amazing!!! Our DJ Ryan was SO awesome and kept everyone on the dance floor all night long! At the end, our guests were chanting for more songs!! His service was professional and stress free! He was so easy to work with and made sure having fun was the top priority for everyone! I highly recommend RUP Production for any wedding or event! We can't thank him enough for an amazing night!!

Ryan far exceeded our expectations and they were very high. We didn't want to provide the whole playlist, we had some must plays and do not plays but everything else, we wanted a DJ who could feel out the crowd and pick the music accordingly. Ryan was phenomenal at doing this. He hit all the songs we asked for and was on point with filling in the rest. Probably 10-20 people pulled me aside during and after the wedding to tell me how much they were loving the music. I should also mention that while Ryan can't possibly get much sleep, he's very responsive and always has a positive attitude. You really can't ask for a better DJ or a better guy to work with on one of the craziest days of your life!

DJ Ryan, What can I say. I recently had the absolute pleasure of meeting him only to be out done by having the honor of working with him. He is extremely a gentleman and a master of his craft. He takes the time to know his audience and then adjust to what the crowd is needing. He had everyone out of the seats dancing. They even did a tango line throughout the building. It was great to see all ages having fun. I can't wait to work with him again. I would highly recommend using him.
