    We looked at several DJs and went with Liam mostly because he sounded like a fun, genuinely friendly, helpful guy. He proved to be that and so much more. His attitude about everything from the planning through getting the party started was an absolutely essential part of our happiness on our wedding day. Everything was so smooth and we really appreciated how relaxed and comfortable he made us and our guests feel. He was easy and professional. The music was a perfect selection of our choices and his fill-ins. He made our reception entrance fun and swiftly handled the rest. We barely left the dance floor and our guests are still talking about how good the music/dancing was. He even wore the tie and all I wanted! We love having the music from our wedding to listen to on a CD he mailed to us. 100% recommended to any couple as he seemed so able to listen to our ideas and make it all work in a easy and fun way. From the bottom of our hearts thank you Liam!!!

    Liam was excellent. Not only was he a fantastic DJ, but he was there to help me out and answer any other questions I had. I was a DIY, plan by yourself bride and his suggestions really helped the wedding come together. He played all my favorite music and the dance floor literally was filled to capacity from start to finish. Thank you Liam!!

    DJ Liam was great. Responded to all my inquiries in a timely manner. My wife and I had a short phone conference with him in order for him to get to know us a little. He's overall a very personable guy. It was very last minute, but he was able to take over right away when the musician's time was up. It was ahead of the time that was agreed upon, but he agreed to doing it without any problems. If I have the opportunity, I would definitely use him again!!

    Planning a destination wedding in Hawaii from Japan was no easy feat. If you are tied between DJ services or not sure who to book, I will say over and over again, Liam Grist is your guy!!! I initially chose him because his website was super user friendly (I'm not exactly technologically savvy!), he was really organized & informative and he totally worked with my budget. Our first encounter was over facetime and I was so impressed by him! He is fun, yet professional, definitely knows his trade and he has the skills to make your wedding truly unforgettable. We held a small renewal at the Olowalu Plantation House with some very special personal touches and Liam was able to execute & deliver every special detail. One of my bridesmaids could not make it due to having a baby so she wrote and sang a very special song for us. Liam and my maid of honor worked together in secret and played this during our ceremony-- it was a total surprise and blew me out the water!! We also performed a flashmob to Thriller in the middle of our couple's dance, without Liam we could not have pulled this one off. We don't listen to a lot of mainstream music, don't enjoy hiphop or country, we're very picky, island/reggae/mellow music lovers and he was able to gather all this info and create the perfect playlist completely personalized to us. Our guests were raving about our wedding playlist. Just a few email interactions with Liam and he was able to reflect us and portray our love through music. Everyone was commenting about it. Liam has been doing this for many years and it shows. He will go above and beyond to make your day truly special-- I know this, because he did it for me. There should be an option for another star because he deserves 6.0/5.0. After the event, he was even kind enough to thank us for choosing him and provided us with our music playlist, ceremony audio and a video of our flashmob-- just because! I was really impressed!! He even cut us a military discount to say “thanks”!

    Liam Grist was great! He was so easy to work with. My husband and I tend to be "too laid back" and had a hard time making a decision about a specific playlist. We told Liam genres we liked and what kind of atmosphere we wanted for our reception and he truly delivered! Our wedding had friends and family of all ages and everyone enjoyed the music! Liam did a great job of reading the energy in the room and making sure everyone had a fun time.

    Liam did a fantastic job at our wedding reception. It was more amazing than we had imagined and his music absolutely made the party!

    We couldn't have been more pleased with his work and all of our friends can't stop talking about how much fun they had dancing.

    So, cheers to the best DJ in Maui… And quite possibly in the world!

    Thank you for making our reception so special and taking the time to create the perfect vibe for our celebration.

    We first saw videos of Liam's work, after our wedding planners told us he was the best, and Liam's parties were flawlessly executed, beautifully mc'd, and everyone looked like they were having a great time on their dance floors. So we were very comfortable going with Liam. We had a video conference with him (since we live in LA) and had something different, than the traditional wedding, in mind for our wedding. We wanted it upbeat and mellow during dinner and then very up-to-date, current dance music in a "club"-like fashion for dancing. No slow songs, just good songs to make it feel like an LA nightclub. Well I had no idea how well he was going to execute it. Not only is he EXTREMELY TALENTED at mixing, he played every song on our request list, keep the floor dancing all night, and even took requests from our drunken friends. All-in-all he was truly and honestly the best DJ I have ever had and I feel blessed to have had him grace our party with his presence and talent.

    Although we were Miles away, our DJ made us feel very comfortable with our decision for choosing him. The fact that he uses FaceTime makes everything feel like we are in the same city

    Liam is an AWESOME DJ! He makes everything available for you online, so it is super easy to stay in contact and update song list requests, ask questions, etc. He worked very well with the musicians and other vendors I had hired and he is very easy to get along with and talk to. I really didn't know what music I wanted, but I described it well enough for him to take my ideas and run with it. Great guy!

    If you are looking for a DJ look no further. Liam is the best wedding DJ I have ever seen. He made our Jan. 2 2014 wedding in Oahu, a night none of our guests will ever forget. He went above and beyond to make it the perfect night. When rain threatened to derail our dancing, Liam's attitude and fabulous music kept everyone on the dance floor in the rain, for the entire night. Many of my guests commented that he was the best wedding DJ that had heard and the music he played was perfect. Liam also helped us during the ceremony by providing microphones and sound systems for our ukelele player.

    Liam was also incredibly easy to work with prior to the wedding. All his payments and contracts were digital, which made it easier for us. He has an extensive website where you can fill in all you musical preferences, info for his MC services and (fun) dress my DJ to make sure he is wearing the right clothing. We could not have been happier with out choice. He was so professional, fun and reasonably priced. You will have a perfect night if you hire Liam Grist.

    OMG! Liam was fun and very responsive throughout our planning. We did a video chat that was helpful and he just brought energy to the wedding. He also gives us recordings of the songs, toasts, and ceremony which was a nice plus.

    We short listed two island Dj's and while the other one could mix and scratch live (which we enjoy on a regular basis) we completely preffered Liam's style. Coming from Canada it was a little stressful trying to organize a destination wedding, but Liam smoothed that right out. From the initial contact he was fantastic! Skype calls, song lists, and amazing communication with plenty of emails. Liam put together a timeline for the wedding which really helped out knowing when speeches would happen, or what to do for the cake cut and such. The services provided by Liam were top notch and I would recommend him to anyone coming to the island. We were running short on our time, and Liam was flexible to stay if necessary, so we paid for an extra hour of music. Everyone was having too much fun. Two things I want to point out:
    1. He kept the dance floor full!!! We had a big mix of age, and music selection. Liam knew how to keep the vibe going.
    2. He did an incredible job getting all the songs we wanted played.
    Overall A++

    Hands down the BEST DJ in town! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. His set up is beautiful and his energy is great! From the ceremony to the reception the music was perfect. DJ Liam really listened to my needs and wants and made my dream wedding come together with great music. He rocked my grand entrance and kept the dance floor filled all night long! I know that all my guest had a wonderful time and we are so glad that DJ Liam was part of our special day.

    Liam did an amazing job DJ-ing our wedding!! He kept our guests dancing all night, and played a great variety of music - oldies, current hits, Latin music - everything we wanted. I really was impressed with the way he was able to work with both the songs on our list and his own songs to make it a great dance party!

    Review from the Groom

    Tanto la organización previa al evento como la puesta en escena, el desarrollo y la post producción fueron desarrolladas impecablemente. Liam es un tipo tremendamente profesional y agradable que sin lugar a dudas contribuyó a que nuestra experiencia fuese de primer nivel, completamente recomendable!

    "Mil Gratis" is 1) Latin for "extra mile" and 2) an anagram for the one and only Liam Grist. This is no coincidence - MC LG will go that extra mile for you. How so? The proof is in the pudding:

    1. He was the most responsive of all our vendors, which helped reduce the stress of a destination wedding. We knew from the start that the DJ/MC was something we wouldn't have to worry about.
    2. He set up phone interviews so we could talk in person and helped us plan the entertainment element of our wedding.
    3. His website has cloud-based forms for entering in music and wedding info, which was helpful (and pretty slick). Through this website we could also choose his attire - nice touch.
    4. He took the short song list we provided and filled in the rest of the set seamlessly.
    5. He set the perfect mood for the reception. Many of our guests said it was the most fun they ever had at a wedding, and Liam was a big part of that.
    6. He follows the 3 sacred D's of the DJ - do your job, dial your knobs and don't play prog. OK I made that up.
    7. He was professional and friendly to our guests and is generally an all-around great guy.

    We highly recommend Liam to you and yours!

    Planning a Maui destination wedding from Canada was made easier by professionals like Liam. Out of our 8 core vendors, Liam definitely ranks in the top 2. From my initial email, Liam was a consistently reliable communicator via email and/ or phone- he never missed an email or a phone call. He is professional, fun, pleasant and he truly puts 110% into making your wedding special and memorable. Liam is very willing to work with you to personalize your wedding: He was instrumental in creating our personalized "brother & sister remix dance mix".

    Liam truly takes advantage of today's modern communication platforms: His website is very informative with many options for lighting, video, projection, etc. We really liked the option of loading our favorite reception and cocktail music selections into our account- it was so easy!

    As a DJ and MC, Liam was pleasant, friendly and was able to read the crowd so well- I think being able to read a crowd of guests is really essential at a wedding esp. to keep people dancing, engaged and interested without being overbearing. Liam is very personable, friendly and brings the right amount of energy to your wedding reception.

    We are beyond pleased with his wedding ceremony & reception services.
