    Great combo package

    Great service by each vendor on the team, everyone was on time, everyone reached out to me individually and responded quickly, everyone was super friendly to talk to on the phone, and everyone answered all of my questions, which reduced the stress of wedding planning. 100% recommend! Julie was an amazing and super sweet photographer, Chris was fantastic DJ b/c he nailed "the blessing", and Erias was a great videographer. I can't wait to get the pics and video back!

    Efficient! Great experience!

    Love the whole team! We booked our photographers, videographer, and DJ all through Blackwell Soundz! Everyone kept talking about how good DJ Chris was! We haven't gotten our pictures yet, but Eric and Julie were fantastic to work with!

    Our requests were atypical, and it worked out!

    We needed a sound system, reliable music, and microphones at two locations.

    Our dj was Matt. He was great about responding quickly and keeping appointments on time. He was very good about finding the music we requested. When our requests were very different from the standard wedding, instead of trying to guide us to fit a mold, Matt smiled and said he could see what image we were going for, then he recommended more pieces of music that kept our theme going.

    Qunitessential Professional

    I sought Blackwell Soundz because I had great experiences at events that other people hired them to do. After working with the proprietor to plan my own event my admiration heightened. Blackwell Soundz was a major reason that my event was a roaring success!

    We couldn't have asked for a better experience with Blackwell Soundz and Entertainment. Not only were they extremely professional they also made the entire process fun and personable. Both Eric and Randy were thorough in making sure every detail was covered from the engagement photoshoot to the day of timeline. They both interacted with our bridal party and guests (which we loved) and almost every guest (even Grammy) was on the dance floor. As the bride, the music was really important to me and I can tell you that I did not leave the dance floor for two straight hours. We had the best time at our wedding, much in part to Blackwell Soundz & Entertainment.

    This couple and their family were simply awesome. We provided services from the engagement photos all the way thru to the ceremony and reception photos and video. DJ Randy put the icing on the cake! They partied and celebrated the entire day and night. These two were made for each other.

    Committed to your wedding vision

    Eric was wonderful. He was so responsive from the minute we interviewed him to book through the end of the wedding. We really wanted a DJ with moderate involvement to keep things fun but not to overdo it and he definitely delivered. System for picking songs, do not play list, and announcements was very easy. Not to mention, he was very affordable and super nice. I highly recommend him!

    DJ Randy was wonderful!

    My wife and I hired Blackwell to cover photography, videography, and DJ'ing. This review will solely cover the DJ aspect.

    My wife and I stumbled upon Blackwell on Wedding Wire as a top choice for wedding photography. After looking into them more, we decided to get the whole sha'bang from them. The DJ part was actually an extra for us for getting a package deal with photography and videography. (though we were looking to have them as a DJ before we figured that out. So...BONUS!)

    DJ Randy was excellent. We were sent a standard form to fill out for him asking such things as pre-ceremony music, what music for the bride walking down the aisle, and what songs we would like, and not like, to hear. It was very thorough! The week of the wedding, we had 2 phone calls with him where we worked out all the details. He double checked that we had filled the form out correctly, went through it with us line by line, and even made sure he was pronouncing certain names right.

    When we met DJ Randy the day of, we could tell he was a great guy from the get-go. Very personable and very friendly. He ran the whole wedding, from walking down the aisle to last dance, extremely smoothly. He was able to make on-the-fly adjustments when we realized we were a little behind from taking pictures and mingling. He played all the right music, based on our list we gave him, and he even noticed that the dance floor was being more receptive to some of the older dance music on our list and continued playing that. There were people dancing non-stop and that is just what we wanted. As an added bonus, he was able to accommodate a request from me wanting to perform a song on guitar to my wife. He had all the necessary gear to make that work as well/

    If we ever have the need for a DJ again, we will not hesitate to request DJ Randy again. He was amazing and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for a wedding!

    (Once we get our photos/video back, we will write more reviews on Blackwell!)

    Photoshoot

    The experience was absoutely AMAZING. Mr. Blackwell displayed a high level of professionalism as well as creativity. Prior to the photoshoot, Mr. Blackwell spent time learning more about my daughter's interest, friends and family member. I would highly recommend him to family and friends!

    Absolutely amazing to work with.

    We had DJ Randy for our vow renewal and he was amazing! He played exactly what we asked and helped keep things going smoothly and kept us informed when the venue was running late or early on things that messed up our timeline. The up lighting was beautiful as was the dance floor lighting. I would absolutely recommend him!

    We had to plan the wedding from across the country so we only met the DJ via Skype. DJ Randy was very accommodating and helpful. I would recommend him for any event, especially weddings. He was professional, personable, helpful, and just plain fun. If I could give 6 stars I absolutely would.

    Eric did such an awesome job at our wedding last night! We had so many good compliments. The dance floor was packed all night and he even came out to dance with us! No one wanted the night to end! Everything went smooth and I didn’t have to worry about a thing! He even did something a little extra for my ceremony when I had an issue a few days before the wedding. Thanks Eric!!

    DJ Randy was amazing to work with! He was always professional and very responsive to my emails and phone calls. I was nervous choosing a DJ because I hate loud music, and he assured me that he'd keep the volume down while still playing upbeat dance music. It was perfect!!! I am a musical theater lover and he incorporated a bunch of Broadway showtunes into our night. I couldn't have been happier! Our dance floor was packed the entire night. It was a perfect night and I can't thank DJ Randy enough.

    DJ Randy did an awesome job at our wedding! He was very professional and covered all of the bases to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted on the big day. He worked with us on a few special requests for songs/dances and helped the entire reception run smoothly and on time. His song selection and mixing was also on point and he kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT...he even joined in for a couple of the dances which was so much fun! He was a huge hit with our guests and we would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Randy!
