Ed was great to work with! He was very professional, responsive and flexible to meet with you. He was very helpful in getting our playlist down and our wedding event schedule together. We were very happy with his services at our wedding!Sent on 03/17/2015

Ed and his wife were amazing. They rescued us last minute because our original DJ went bankrupt after we paid in full. Ed let us pay in payments online because we were scared to pay in full again. They gave us a very very good rate to help us out. I am originally from a small town up north and my husband is Hispanic from San Antonio. Ed did a great job of balancing the music for both crowds. He would have the Motown and YMCA for my college friends and the Cumbia for my friends / family here. He made the songs flow together well so that we were even able to get my Up North friends on the dance floor to learn to Cumbia & Salsa! Also he was good with the lights. I wanted only white soft lite to start the night for the main dances, then after all of the serious dances were over he lit op the dance floor with all kinds of lights. It was like a dance club! We loved it. He said he could choose with or without the multi-colored lights, it was so much fun with them. Also he met with us before hand and went through everything in detail so that I wasn't stressed. HE had worked at my venue before so he knew how to set up everything. Him and his wife were so nice.Sent on 11/19/2014

Couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Ed was always quick to respond to any questions that I had and did a great job entertaining all my guests at my wedding. We had a wide variety attendees and needed all types of music and Ed did an excellent job in mixing everything up so that everyone could enjoy the night. Great price and great guy. You will not regret using him.Sent on 08/20/2012

Punalu'u Productions did a fabulous job at our wedding reception! We felt comfortable with him the minute we sat down for our first meeting. He was outgoing without being cheezy like I felt some DJs are. His prices are great and he took the time to get to know us and the type of music we wanted played during the reception. He definitely delivered on what he promised us during the 2 meetings we had with him before the wedding.Sent on 10/08/2010

I have to first say that the wedding entertainment provided by Ed was very good. We liked it so much we asked him to come dj my husbands backyard pool party this summer. The problem with Ed is he is judgmental and in many ways not professional. Because a couple of my groomsmen had a few beers and had a fight, he basically told us he would not dj our party because we were, in not so many words, classless and out of control. Yes, there was a fight at my wedding. Yes, that was terrible, the last thing in the world a bride wants. I'm still upset about it and it has strained the relationships within our friends and family. To have it thrown in our faces when we compliment him by offering him more work is unkind and unprofessional. Apparently he is most upset because someone "cracked someone over the head with a beer bottle" (didn't happen) and his twelve year old sn was shooting pictures near the scuffle and had to bear witness. Then don't bring your kid to my wedding! That was never discussed. He used his kid to relay messages to us throughout the night and take pictures of our private event, none of which was authorized by us and in my opinion, fairly unprofessional. He ruined our first dance by playing the explicit version instead of the clean radio version despite the fact we reminded him several times. We were actually willing to overlook these factors because he did put on such a good show for the price, but Ed Elizondo, the person, is unkind, unprofessional, and inconsiderate. How about just telling us no thank you, I'm booked? No he felt it necessary to make me relive the nights negative points again via email, not just any old night, my damn wedding night which every woman looks forward to and hopes to have wonderful lasting memories of forever. If this is the type of person you'd like to entrust with your special occasion by all means hire him. But beware.Sent on 04/29/2013

At first Punalu'u Productions DJ Service was awesome to work with. We (my husband and I and the bride and groom) met with him on two different occasions. We felt very comfortable with him and thought he would provide an awesome service. I am very organized so I produced an outline/timeline of songs for him to play and was very specific about it. Again we met two times with him.Sent on 10/25/2010
Two days before the wedding I contacted him again wanting to make sure he had everything down pat. We wanted a "Grand March" for the beginning of the dance. I explained in detail that this was to last anywhere from 10-12 minutes long. My cousins were the couple leading the Grand March and before the reception was to begin she went up to the DJ and explained again. Well needless to say it was a disaster. He did not listen to one thing either one of us had said. He also did not follow my outline/timeline (mostly regarding the couples first dance). He started the wrong song twice!!!! It was very embarrassing to me and the bride/groom. The bride was in tears. My cousin went up to talk to him again after he totalling messed up the Grand March and he replied to her OVER THE INTERCOM that he thought there was only one wedding planner, not two! Very embarrassing to say the least!!!
I would not recommend to anyone! He did not even apologize after the wedding was over! You get what you pay for!!! He was professional until the wedding day!
Punalu'u Productions DJ Service's reply:Wow! Do I have enough room to respond and where do I start. Well, let’s just start chronologically.
