Best DJ Service!!!!
Hiring Ray the DJ for our wedding was the best decision we have ever made. Marcus was our DJ and he wasn’t just the best DJ we could’ve ever had, he has now become a friend to my husband and I. We got engaged in April 2019, with a set plan of having our wedding at Villa Siena on October 3, 2020. When we signed our contract at the venue they told us, trust us, you want Marcus to DJ your event and we will do everything we can to make that happen. We get the email shortly after that Marcus is our DJ and we have our first meeting with him. I knew right from the beginning that it was going to be a fun event. He brought energy to the table and had some amazing ideas about song selection. He also has a business called Phoenix Uplighting and he can provide you with personalized monograms, beautiful up lights and sparklers to take your event to the next level. We were so excited to have our wedding on October 3, 2020, but then Covid had other plans. We were devastated and didn’t know if we should postpone or not. We made the difficult decision to hold off hosting our wedding celebration until April 16, 2021. There was one problem though, I wasn’t sure if Marcus was going to be available for the new date. So I called him, pretty sure I was crying and he told me don’t worry, I’m available, we will make all the changes we need to make and he helped put our minds at ease. My husband and I ended up getting married on our original date and planned on doing everything again, ceremony through reception on April 16th with all of our family and friends. Marcus communicated with us every step of the way. Marcus made our event what is was. He was professional, up beat, and had the best song selection. Marcus also helped mix two songs together for the father/daughter dance! Our guests keep asking about him. He did a beautiful monogram for us that included our original date with gorgeous up lights and surprised us with sparklers during our grand entrance into the ballroom. We danced the night away and having Marcus there made the night truly unforgettable. He also speaks four different languages including Italian which I am. He introduced us in Italian as well as English and my Nonna was so excited about it. It was the personal touches that made it so very special. We are blessed to know Marcus. If you guys are looking for a DJ service in the Phoenix area, look no further, Ray the DJ is where it’s at. And trust us, you want Marcus!Sent on 04/19/2021

James @ Ray the DJ was GREAT!!!
We would like to say a special thank you to our wedding DJ, James Mennes! James was extremely professional, and after our first zoom chat, I knew we were in the best hands. He not only was a pro at formatting and itinerary, James was familiar with all of our music and made it a point to customize the playlist to Merril and I, from start to finish. You went above and beyond for us James, not only the icing on the cake, but the cherry on top! If you are looking for a DJ, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND James to make your big day truly amazing!Sent on 01/11/2021
Ray the DJ's reply:James said that you and Merril were easy to work with, very relaxed and fun! He especially enjoyed the wide range of music that you and your guests liked and had fun reading the crowd to keep everyone happy. Your guests were very kind and hospitable and wanted to dance! It was nice to have such an enthusiastic and loving group that wanted to have fun in the face of the Covid situation.
This is an excellent wedding vendor. We highly recommend!
Ray the DJ has come through with stellar service and execution time and time again. Their DJ's are fun, personable, and knowledgable! Whether you want a party atmosphere, or something more laid back, Ray the DJ can cater to your every whim for any event. I highly recommend them for your next special occasion!
Each wedding I have planned; that had Ray the DJ, as their dj of choice; was perfect! Every dj I have worked with has been so very helpful in the planning process, and so wonderful and professional on the day-of. Have known Ray and Barbara, for a few years; as we are both members of the Association of Bridal Consultant's. Their desire to grow, and be the best; shows through the business they have built. They are awesome people, and I am looking forward to the up-coming weddings I have this year, with Ray the DJ!
