Bobby Leach from Steve Bender
Bobby was professional and flexible while being mindful of the schedule of events. He played the music we requested and added just the right songs in order to maintain the energy of our crowd!Sent on 10/28/2019

Best in the business!
From the second we met Steve we knew we were going to book, he was funny, kind, and knowledgeable. We had our wedding on a Sunday morning, not exactly the most popular time, but Steve never complained, he came to the event and rocked the house! I listen to everything under the sun so my song selections were a bit different, he found every song I wanted and played my favorites but also included songs people could get up and dance to! He helped the event sail smoothly and was a joy to work with! We could not have asked for a better DJ!Sent on 01/14/2020

Steve is the BEST DJ!!!
I highly recommend hiring Steve Bender for these reasons: ( booked early so I had a locked in rate) but so reasonably priced, when you book, you create an online form where you can make requests, look up songs, and plan your day using this! So handy! You can access it any time you want, I was on probably twice a day for months... Everything is so easy and you can make payments whenever you want for whatever amount you want. Super easy. The actual wedding was perfect! Music was one of my biggest (if not biggest) things that had to be perfect as I've been to many weddings where it was subpar and boring for lack of another word. Everything was as I envisioned, no technical issues, sounded great, every song I requested was played, people got to make requests. It was perfect! HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Steve Bender!!Sent on 10/28/2019

Exceptional DJ Experience!
Casey and I have the best experience with Steve Bender! Steve made us feel at home from our very first meeting. We originally were going to go with a different DJ, which works for Steve, who we have seen at my roommate's wedding in 2015, but after meeting with Steve, we felt so comfortable and had such good conversation with him and felt he would meet our every need at our wedding. Steve made sure to give us all the details and gave us a good deal. He was extremely tentative and professional. He also was able to adjust to our timeline and add on last minute ceremony music days before our wedding which eased our stress. Steve made the lighting in our tent at Pinecroft look beautiful and passed out glow sticks for us during the reception as he played music which kept the energy going the entire night. He was fun, entertaining and played a variety of music which made the guests want to keep dancing and the dance floor full the whole night. Casey and I also used Steve for the photo booth and upgraded to the premium booth for video. We LOVED watching the videos and pictures days after our wedding and will cherish these memories forever. We would highly recommend Steve Bender to anyone and are sad we can't hit replay on our wedding night!Sent on 10/16/2019

best dj ever
Bender was our DJ and was hands down the best DJ we have ever experienced. First off, when we called him and left a message, within 5 minutes he would call us back. He is super friendly and easy to talk to. At our wedding, he made the party happen. He kept everyone on the dance floor with good flow of music and could really vibe what the people wanted to hear. He stayed an extra hour just for us. Steve Bender is hands down the best dj we have ever experienced, he felt the crowd and kept the vibes up. I would have gladly paid twice as much. He went above and beyond and just blew us away!! Thank you Steve for making our special day so amazing!!Sent on 08/20/2019

Amazing! Would 100% recommend!
Amazing and would 100% recommend. Steve was our DJ for my husband and I’s wedding last weekend. The entire process with Steve was streamlined and amazing. Their website is super easy to use and makes wedding planning do able at your own time. He stayed in touch with us and was great with communication. He played everything we loved and everything to keep the hype up at the reception.Sent on 08/22/2019

Awesome DJ and person
We told Steve at our final meeting that we are so happy we picked him, and a week after our wedding- I stand behind this saying. Choosing Steve as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we have made when booking our wedding vendors. He was wonderful, attentive, focused on our vision and very very responsive. During the planning process, I contacted the company at least 3 times, and was shocked to get a returned phone call from Steve himself, within a few hours EVERY TIME. He really does care about making the clients happy and playing wedding music perfect for the couple. I have no words to thank him enough. Best wedding DJ EVER!!Sent on 07/23/2019

Professional and made the night so fun!
Steve Bender himself joined us for a vendor meeting a couple of days before and was extremely kind/flexible when deciding on the DJ set up for our reception. Shaun (our DJ) gave me a cal the week of to talk through details and make sure we were getting everything we wanted from our music. The night of, Shaun played all of our favorite songs and kept the dance floor lively. We loved getting to know him and appreciate the part he played in our perfect day. Would definitely recommend this team!Sent on 10/17/2019

DJ Bobby was Great!
Overall DJ Bobby was great! He coordinated with our officiant with ceremony music and played music during our cocktail hour from a different floor as well. Only bummer was we felt he wasn't loud enough at times (which definitely could have been a venue problem). Many people at the wedding had no idea we cut our cake or our dessert was put out! Bobby was great with the kids and passed out glow necklaces to guests. One guest asked if he could sing a song and our DJ came up to my husband and I and asked our permission first which was great because we did NOT want anyone doing karaoke! Overall, would recommend Steve Bender and Bobby - I would just double check the sound in the venue first!Sent on 02/09/2019

Steve was great! The planning process was easy and stress free.
Steve is a great DJ! The online planning tool is easy to use and makes the process smooth and stress free. The planning tool is detailed which enables you to think through all aspects of your reception in advance. The online library is large and gives you great song ideas. Steve is a pro and very creative with song selection. He did a great job executing the music style we wanted at our reception. The monogram and accent lighting added a special touch to our venue. We highly recommend!Sent on 10/26/2018
A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:Thank you Lorin! What a great night it was and you're right, the Grand is a fabulous venue. Your Monogram and Lighting looked great and we are glad we were able to provide the look you were wanting. Congratulation to the two of you!

Joe Griffin was our premier DJ for our wedding and he was incredible! He was friendly, accommodating, and professional throughout the entire process. We didn't have to worry about a single thing as he clearly knew what he was doing and we felt so confident having him MC and DJ the night's festivities. He did exactly as we asked and kept the party flowing with minimal interruptions. Steve was wonderful to work with as well - organized, responsive, and so helpful. We would definitely recommend Joe and Steve Bender for any event.Sent on 10/12/2017
A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:Thank you so much for the kind words! Joe is one of the reasons we're one of the top rated DJ services in the Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky area. He wanted to let you know he really enjoyed your event at the Cincinnati Art Museum and I want to thank you for being a wonderful client and for the kind words.
