    Amazing Experience Working with DJ KC!

    We loved working DJ KC! I'd recommend him to everyone. He was a pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding. Our friends and family have continued to rave about him after the wedding. Our dance floor never had a dull moment! Also, he did a spectacular for all of our audio needs during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner. He's flexible, easy to work with, and very responsive. Highly recommend!

    Amazing experience with DJ Stylus

    A coworker recommended DJ D-Mac after using his team for her wedding and we are so happy she did! We worked with DJ Stylus who was amazing from beginning to end. Any tasks or song lists we needed to submit he had scheduled with reminders and he had great recommendations for songs we weren't sure on like entrance songs and cake cutting etc which made the whole process much less stressful. DJ Stylus handled all of our special requests, and put them on without a hitch (including playing a mash up "Baby Shark" and "We Are the Champions" when The National's Running President arrived :)). The best by far was the dance party we had all night, everyone from our parents to our college friends were on the dance floor the whole night and it was exactly what we wanted. To make it even better DJ Stylus sent our full song list to us after the wedding, a little touch you may not think of but we're so glad he did and that we now have that to dance party every anniversary :). Thank you again!!

    Everyone was impressed

    DJ Stylus could not have been a better DJ for our wedding. The whole operation was smooth, professional, and discrete when appropriate. From start to finish he managed the wedding ceremony, dinner, and dance party perfectly. Once the dancing got started, he read the room well and kept things going at just the right level all night. Everyone at the wedding recommends DJ Stylus. We can only assume that the rest of the crew at DJ D-Mac & Associates are equally impressive.

    Amazing - DJ D-MAC and DJ Stereo Faith

    DJ D-MAC and his crew were amazing!! Super responsive, highest quality service, etc.

    We used DJ Stereo Faith for our wedding in September 2019, and can’t say enough good things. He perfectly read the room, moved the evening along flawlessly, and played great tunes. We’ve had many guests tell us how fantastic he was and how he helped create an atmosphere where everyone had a great time (some even said “the most fun wedding ever”!).

    A million thank yous to both DJ D-MAC and DJ Stereo Faith - we’ll be recommending you to everyone!

    Rhome (DJ Stylus) brought down the house

    Rhome (DJ Stylus) was amazing, and exactly what we were looking for. He was thoughtful and helped us pick great music to keep people dancing all night. Daryle set up everything in basecamp which made planning all the easier. Would HIGHLY recommend!

    Perfect Soundtrack

    The dance floor at our wedding was packed the entire night thanks to Daryle. We had two last songs but our guests were still chanting for more at the end of the night. He truly made it a celebration and knew the perfect songs to play for our crowd. We wish we could do it all again!

    Dc wedding

    The only thing I wanted was for guests to dance at my wedding. I was so nervous that the dance floor would be empty. I relaxed as soon as the tunes began because DJ KC killed it from start to finish! He plated the perfect dinner music, my parents loved it and guests kept coming up to our table and telling us how great the music was. After dinner it was party time! KC didn’t miss a beat and everyone was already up and moving before I was! I was so happy to see my guests dancing and singing along to all the songs KC was playing! He really felt the crowd and kept the vibe upbeat and fun all night!

    DJ Stylus brought the party!

    We wanted our wedding to feel like a party, and DJ Stylus (Rhome) delivered 100%. Super easy to work with from the start. Everything is in a project management platform so nothing gets missed. It showed. We had entrances, dances, and speeches and not a hiccup. Everything was super smooth. And everyone was on the dance floor. We asked for a mix of South Asian (my wife's family is Punjabi so bhangra was a must), Latin, and hip-hop/dance including some throw-backs (we're 40ish). DJ Stylus chose and mixed songs SO well. Rihanna to DJ Sanj to Marc Anthony? Yes! Wish we could relive it. Next best, he sent us a recording and it's on our list to see him when he plays in DC sometime in 2020. Strongly recommend.

    Dance Party of Our Dreams!

    We hired DJ KC on recommendation of our friends, and he was fantastic! We hired him through the manager, Daryle, who was responsive and easy to work with. He set up a BaseCamp for us to communicate with the whole team, which made the process easy. DJ KC gave us lots of helpful tools to create a playlist and a timeline. Most importantly, he absolutely crushed the playlist! He played the obscure songs we wanted to hear, mixed in seamlessly with crowd favorites. He took requests, but was judicious in playing them, and kept everyone dancing the whole night away! He was very nice and professional, and a calming presence during the wedding. He kept us on the timeline but was also flexible. Could not recommend highly enough!

    DJ Stylus was fantastic! We absolutely loved him. He had the dance floor packed all evening, and was extremely polished and professional. He spent a lot of time with us before the wedding to ensure he understood our wishes, and then he executed them perfectly! Daryle was also fantastic -- responsive and helpful! I would recommend the team to anyone who asks. We couldn't have had a better DJ.

    Absolutely amazing!

    When we contacted DJ-DMac, Steven (DJ Stereo Faith) from their team was recommended to us based on our taste in music. He was amazing and our guests keep talking about the dancing! He kept all of our guests- friends and family of all ages- dancing all night and we never had to worry about a thing. DJ Stereo Faith was professional, experienced, on top of everything, listened to our suggestions, followed our requests, and also used his expertise and experience to keep everyone dancing and having a great time.

    What a pleasure!

    It was a pleasure to work with Ty Hussell! There are very few people I've worked with in any field who conduct themselves with Ty's level of thoughtfulness and professionalism. He listened carefully to the mood we were trying to express during cocktail hour and wedding reception and nailed it. Of the genres and artists we discussed, he was also excellent at reading the dance floor and choosing the best song for the moment. I had a few specific wedding ceremony audio processing requests for Ty, and he was patient and very easy to work with. Due to a family emergency, we had some last-minute modifications to our event and he was incredibly supportive and helpful there too. Ty is one of those rare people that you just know after talking to him that you can trust 100% to do a great job, and we would recommend him without reservation to anyone. He was a valued member of our team, and a gracious and kind human to boot! We really loved working with him.

    We're so glad we hired Daryl and his team at DJ D-Mac & Associates, who came highly recommended by our wedding coordinator. Daryl's a total pro, who made the planning process easy, with step-by-step instructions for identifying exactly what we wanted for sound and music on our wedding day (and also lighting and photo booth services). On the day of, Daryl made sure the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception speeches ran smoothly and just the way we had planned, without any glitches or delays. And as for the dancing, which was particularly important to us, Daryl did a spectacular job -- weaving together perfectly chosen hits, ensuring that each song flowed smoothly into the next, and wowing everyone with a light show coordinated to the music. We got a ton of compliments from our guests, many of whom said it was the best DJ'd wedding they'd been to.

    We had DJ Stylus for our wedding and he was perfect! For our ceremony, he was organized and efficient, made sure the audio was set up with microphones and speakers. For the reception, we had an absolute blast. We had SO many people on the dance floor, including people I would have never expected to be out there - he did a great job arranging songs and including the ones that we requested to be played. We had so many guests tell us how great the DJ was and how much fun they had at our wedding, we definitely recommend DJ Stylus for events!!

    You want Rhome for your wedding!

    Working with DJ D-Mac and Associates was a great experience. They have a project management platform for keeping organized and communicating. Although DJ Stylus had DJ'd at my venue before, I appreciate that he still visited the venue in advance and was communicating with their staff on logistics.

    DJ Stylus as great DJ. He DJ'd our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The nice touch after the wedding is he provided us a list of all the songs that he played during the wedding.

    We had a great experience with Daryle (DJ DMAC) & Steven (DJ Stereo Faith)! When we first began searching for a DJ, we were turned off by many vendors who seemed like cheesy wedding DJs. When we found Daryle & Steven, we realized they were totally different, and more in line with what we were looking for. Steven was willing to share some venues he was playing in DC, so we actually got to scope him out at a club beforehand. I think it was definitely to our advantage to have a DJ who is current and still active in many venues in the area, and isn't just limited to weddings. We had multiple phone calls with Steven before the wedding, which really allowed us to fine-tune exactly what we were looking for from our DJ. When we asked for advice, Steven had really helpful suggestions as far as the flow of the night. The only thing that was less than ideal during the event planning was being made to use Basecamp for communication - you get a lot of redundant emails from this system, and it was annoying to search through every individual thread on the platform to find part of a previous conversation. However, I do understand why they use this system - so all of the information is in one place if a backup DJ needs to step in.

    Steven was very aware of our schedule throughout the wedding reception - we appreciated him prompting us when things were coming up (such as cake cutting and parent dances), and checking in to offer us more time when we fell slightly behind schedule. On top of all of that, Steven absolutely crushed the music for the night! It was a perfect mix of classic songs that get everyone on the dance floor, in addition to some more modern music that we wanted. In addition, Daryle & Steven were flexible and helpful when we wanted to add ceremony sound services just a couple of weeks before the event. Also, their pricing was completely reasonable. We truly had a great time dancing with all of our family and friends, & are so happy we went with DJ Stereo Faith!

    * Daryl was really flexible and easy to work with and in the end helped us out with some tough choices

    * Ty (our DJ) was extremely flexible and put us at ease

    * Our intro meeting with Ty left us feeling extremely confident

    * He had great suggestions about flow & timing

    * He worked with the photographer to coordinate send-off

    * He took whatever blueprint we could come up with for him and filled in all the gaps

    * We got a ton of compliments on the music -- the mix & fun of it, and the fact that the volume was never so loud that people needed to yell over it. The leveling was perfect.

    * He did great editing of our (non-traditional) ceremony music and timed them perfectly

    * If DJ D-Mac has people like Ty, I can't recommend them highly enough

    * He was incredibly warm and personable each time we got to interact with him. He's a genuinely nice person.

    * He was the opposite of a cheesy wedding DJ

    * We could choose which DJ was right for us -- the bios, etc.

    * The lighting was also great. We said we didn't want too much and I think they delivered fun but more subtle lighting.

    * D-Mac uses Basecamp for all communication, which was a bit of overkill.

    We originally spoke to Daryle when booking with DJ D-Mac & Associates and he asked us some great questions to narrow down exactly what we needed even though we’d never hired a DJ before. We decide to book a lighting package too and I can’t imagine our reception without Daryle and Neal there to keep the party going. They kept the dance floor packed all night long and it was awesome to have the LED uplights pulsing to the music while the records were spinning. Our guests had so much fun and were talking for weeks about how great the DJ and lighting was.

    Daryle was great to work with and is highly recommended. In our first conversation he quickly grasped what we wanted at our wedding and also recommended some new bands to me. He kept in touch via an online scheduling system which helpfully reminded me what I needed to do before the big day, was flexible enough to add ceremony DJ services with less than 24 hours' notice, and helped to live-stream a speech from a family member who was unable to make it.
    The music that Daryle played was spot on and he had everyone up and dancing for the whole reception. I would definitely recommend DJ Mac for any event.

    We can't recommend DJ D-Mac and Associates highly enough!! We specifically requested DJ Stylus because we'd heard his global sets around town and knew that he would be able to cover the range of genres we wanted at our wedding. And, DJ Stylus knocked it out the park!! From beginning to end, he had the ENTIRE wedding reception packed on the dance floor the entire evening--even our friends who never dance! Our reception was far and away the best dance party, ever! DJ Stylus created a fun vibe with incredible mashups of oldies with pop hits, to classic sing-a-longs and romantic slow dance songs, from 90s and 00s jams to new grass to dancehall; he even inspired a lively conga line and later a soul train line to Jackson 5! His range and ability to read a crowd is phenonmenal.

    DJ Stylus was responsive and easy to work with throughout the process. He was familiar with our venue and coordinated directly with the event planner for audio set up such that the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were seamless. He was open to our ideas and respectful our of do-not-play list. Without a doubt, we'd hire DJ Stylus again and add an extra hour!

    We are so happy that we booked Daryle of DJ DMac and Associates for our wedding! (He is the owner of the company/ head DJ). He was referred to me by my sister, who happened to attend the wedding of a friend who had hired him as their DJ. My sister raved about how much fun they had and how she loved his music choices, so I was sold. From the beginning Daryle was professional and responsive. We met him once before the wedding, and then had various conversations via Basecamp and email. Basecamp is a really easy to use project management tool that allows you to store all conversations, wedding playlists, samples of songs, etc in one place.

    We gave some direction as far as the "do not play" songs and also the "must play" but other than that we left it up to him. He did a great job at reading the crowd and changing the music based on the vibe of the room. As the bride, I remember looking around and seeing so many people on the dance floor toward the end of the night and it was so exciting!! I had a few comments from friends/family that it was the best wedding dj they had heard.

    Thank you again to Daryle!! I would highly recommend!

    If there is one thing about wedding planning you need to remember, it's to pick really great vendors. Our wedding was such a hit because of the fantastic work of our DJ, Steven. The timeline of our night got a little off but Steven was flexible and when we sped things up a bit, he got the dance floor going SO quickly. Our guests kept talking about how funny it was that as soon as the dance floor opened up, everyone descended immediately. He had the perfect songs for dinner and we loved all the dance music he played. The owner of the company, Daryle, was also a pleasure to work with. He answered all of our questions very quickly and we genuinely enjoyed talking to him on the phone. Thanks for a great wedding!

    We had a great experience with DJ D-Mac and Associates, who we found through a recommendation by a friend. Daryle was extremely responsive and friendly while we inquiring about DJ options, songs/music, costs, etc., and Neal (aka DJ Neville C) did a fantastic job at our wedding, which took place in a big courtyard at a historic home in downtown DC.

    In particular, we'd loved how flexible everyone was up until the day of the wedding, which was a little hectic because there was a 60% chance of thunderstorms and we didn't know until a few hours beforehand whether it was going to happen outside in the courtyard or inside the home (which would have required multiple DJ setups and different equipment).
    Neal rocked the wedding, with multiple guests coming up to us during and afterwards to say how much they liked the music. I love the fact that Neal uses vinyl, though he was also able to find a couple of special requests though he played through an iPod (I think). Neal also seemed to be having a genuinely good time himself, which was nice to see.

    Overall, I'd definitely recommend these guys as they know how to throw a good party and make sure everyone's having a good time. They're also very reasonably priced!

    Working with DJ STYLUS was great from the initial interview down to the wedding day. All it took was one interview to know that he was going to be a great fit. He was very professional and knowledgeable and always answered our questions in a timely manner. During the event, there was not one moment where he was not full of energy. Everyone had a blast on the dance floor and commented on how much they loved the music selection, which was very important given the diverse group. We would not hesitate to recommend DJ STYLUS for your event!

    DJ D-Mac & Associates's reply:

    I took the Metro way out to VA to meet with you all. I knew that first consult was going to lead to a great wedding day. Will remember this one as an end to end pleasure, from first handshake to last song of the night. Thanks, Brittany!
