    We were thrilled with our experience with No Macarena. They DJ'd our wedding at Bok in South Philly in September 2018. Our initial communication was with Kim Alexander (owner), who took the time to understand our needs and work out our contract. A few weeks before our wedding, we had a great phone call with our DJ (Joe Pizzio) who was outstanding to work with. We had been considering doing the DIY/Spotify route and Joe was great about taking the playlists we had compiled and putting his own spin on them. He largely stuck with the songs we'd been considering (without making us feel weird about it) but had some great additions and really made the evening flow -- lots of thoughtful transitions (Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop" into Drake's "Nice For What", which features a Lauryn Hill sample in the hook, wasn't lost on us), wasn't afraid to transition out of a song that the room wasn't not feeling, etc. Can't speak highly enough about how pleased we were with Joe and No Macarena in general. Highly recommended!

    Our wedding went fantastic and was in great part due to Joe Pizzio of No Macarena. He was incredibly flexible and has an in-depth, varied music knowledge base. We had asked for a more pop-punk inspired music list and with only a handful of examples he was able to fill out the music list in way that EVERYONE was up and dancing, having a fantastic time. We also had a close to last minute game we wanted to do that required multiple songs to keep the energy going and Joe was all over it. He was an absolute delight to work with and we had that many more memorable moments because of the energy he brought to the party.

    No Macarena was great! Joe Pizzio was the DJ for our wedding, including ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Both he and Kim (the owner of the company) were easy to work with and professional. Joe did a great job listening to our music preferences and our vision for the different parts of the event, from 60’s pop during cocktail hour to soft indie during dinner. His playlists perfectly matched our musical taste. Joe did a great job during the dance party at the reception. He kept our crowd dancing and having fun! He mixed well-known songs and our more idiosyncratic requests in a way that kept the dance party going while still giving us the chance to dance to some of our more offbeat favorites. We highly recommend No Macarena and Joe for anyone who wants music choices that are a little unconventional.

    We got married on 6/30/18 and Kim provided the perfect soundtrack for our wedding! She was accommodating and easy to work with. We had one coordination meeting by phone and a few follow up emails to provide her with a list of song/artist requests beforehand. We also sent her a Spotify playlist songs people like to dance to (we are not pop music people). Kim did a great job sequencing songs through cocktail hour and dinner and then transitioning into dance music. She incorporated most of our specific requests while filling in the blanks with complementary material. Everyone was dancing by the end of the night!

    We had an excellent experience with No Maracena and DJ Josh Landow for our wedding. My wife and I used to live in Latin America and had a lot of Latin music that you wouldn't find on most playlists - Josh took the time to find all the songs we requested, helping to make it a memorable night. Josh also offered to record the ceremony and the toasts after dinner for a small extra charge. It's not something that we would have thought to do, but we're very glad now to have this as an extra memento.

    My wife and I attended our friends' wedding a few years ago which Kim DJ'ed. We agreed at that wedding that we would use her for ours when the day came. She was the first vendor we hired after booking our venue and we couldn't be more pleased. She was amazing throughout the entire process and really went out of her way to make the day perfect. My wife and I have very different tastes in music but Kim was able to fuse the two and provide an amazing soundtrack which everyone is still complimenting us on. We have already recommended her to our friends and family.

    Truly phenomenal! We debated hiring a DJ for months as we were adamant about having a playlist unique to us and our guests. Then we came across No Macarena and Dave Beck made our late 90s/early 2000s hit list dreams come true. The dance floor was packed until the end of the night and our guests asked about our DJ multiple times. We can't express our gratitude enough!

    No Macarena provided us with a sound system for our ceremony and then supplied great music
    during our reception! The dance floor was packed, and we all had an absolute blast! DJ Danny Madonna was the best. Thank you!

    Kim and the No Macarena team were phenomenal. She had every song I requested (even super obscure ones) and she managed my expectations super well. She kept everyone dancing and responded to the mood of the guests. We were so pleased with her professionalism, music knowledge, and how she kept the flow going just right all evening. 100% recommend for the person who wants something different and totally custom.

    We had such a good feeling about Kim from our first meeting, and she did not disappoint. She took our playlist and ran with it. No flash, just good music, and that's exactly what we wanted. We kept saying, Kim just "gets it"! Our dance floor was packed all night!

    Leading up to the wedding, Kim and Darrel were responsive and helpful. On the night of the wedding itself, Darrel was amazing. He had everyone dancing the whole time. It could not have been a better experience!

    Amazing!!! Dave was our DJ and he was fantastic. So easy to work with and he really understood the vibe we were going for at the wedding. We had a blast and danced all night! Use them- don't bother looking around. They are the best, hands down.

    My husband and I worked with No Macarena for our wedding and could not have been happier. We connected with Kim immediately during our first call and knew she would be the ideal fit for our wedding.

    Kim was very responsive and gave us great direction in planning the music for our wedding reception. As part of the planning processing, Kim had us complete an information sheet on our musical likes and dislikes. Initially, we went way over board, proposing at least 100 songs we thought should be played at our wedding reception at different times. Kim leveled with us (gently), and recommended that she work with the themes and play our top songs (thank you Kim!). Kim was 100% right. She responded to the feelings of the crowd and kept the party going all night. Kim made sure to save our favorite songs for when we were on the dance floor.

    No Macarena was a top vendor for our wedding. Kim was so professional, responsive, and easy to work with. We received countless compliments on our DJ from our guests and even other vendors. We found No Macrena's pricing to be very reasonable, especially given the quality and overall experience.

    I would 100% book with No Macarena again and have since recommended No Macarena to other brides.

    We recently had Dave dj our wedding. He was fantastic and we'd absolutely use No Macarena again for another event. Dave was on time, he introduced himself, was very friendly and easy to work with. We discussed requests prior to the wedding, we shared some styles of music we liked and Dave did the rest. We asked for a subtle Philly theme and he provided that by playing some hits without us having to give him exact details. The whole crowd was up and dancing for the entirety of the night. Thank you again so much, everything was fantastic.

    In 2003 I was at a wedding and heard a Bjork song during the cocktail hour and thought, "Wow, who is this DJ!?" I went to the DJ table and took the business card. It was No Macarena and I was 19 years old. Ten years later, my best friend got married and the DJ was really on the mark, so I asked my friend who the DJ was and she said No Macarena! So I didn't really shop around for a wedding DJ. My husband and I had had fun making a playlist of music we thought would be fun to hear at a wedding. I shared it with Kim so that she could get a read on us, and she wound up playing a lot of it, which was great. We had entertained the idea of just using that playlist on an iPod and foregoing having a DJ, but we're so glad we had Kim there to keep the party going. The price was very reasonable, and we were so happy with the whole event.

    My wife and I have some interesting musical tastes. Think: Michael McDonald, ABBA and the Spice Girls. Kim found a way to blend together our 'must-haves' with similar songs in the genre and when we gave her our "no play" list, we could feel the high-five through the phone as we could tell she was tired of playing them too. So many guests remarked how our set list was incredible. At a typical wedding, the music hits and misses with a few solid dance songs that get people out there, a few groaners that people begrudgingly dance to and some "huh?" songs that people use as an excuse to nibble their dessert or grab another drink. At our wedding, it was non-stop dancing and fun and our guests let us know how awesome it was. Thank you Kim!

    We were incredibly happy with "No Macarena" for our wedding. The owner Kim was very friendly and professional. She listened to what we wanted and gave us exactly that. She got people on the dance floor. We got compliments all day about the great music selection. I would definitely hire them again for another event!

    We could not have been happier with No Macarena on our wedding day! Kim was so easy to get along with, at one point, she even helped calm me down when another vendor had upset me. Leading up to the wedding, she was great to communicate with - answered emails promptly and entertained all of my silly questions. The music was incredible, she knew exactly what to play to make everyone dance - old and young alike! We got compliments on the music all night, and for months after the wedding. Multiple people have even asked me for her contact info! They say that good music makes a wedding, and we couldn't agree more. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
