DJ for 02/22/20 Gilbert Wedding
Jeff was amazing for our wedding. We found him off of Val Vista Lake's preferred vendor list. He came off as very professional and experienced on our first skype interview and we knew immediately that we'd be comfortable hiring him for our wedding.Sent on 03/08/2020
We were so impressed by how prepared he was which made us feel prepared with him. He gave us a worksheet with preparation questions before our first consultation which gave us a list of songs to pick and recommendations for events for the day. During the consultation we went over our song choice and vision for the set list for our cocktail hour and reception. The best part was going over our timeline for the day and listening to his recommendations for when to have our entrance, parent's dance, cake cutting, etc. to keep our guests engaged all night.
On our wedding day, Jeff showed up early and had everything setup before our cocktail hour and even kept us informed on the weather on if we could do the cocktail hour inside our outside. He was a great help on informing our guests of events and where to go throughout the evening. He was absolutely killer when the father of the bride went missing before the father/daughter dance. He kept up with entertaining all of us with jokes and improvising the timing to have the mother/son dance first while we looked for the father of the bride.
The best part was that Jeff knows how to read the room and keep people on the dance floor. Once the dancing started people were on the dance floor all night long. He absolutely knows how to choose a banger to keep people dancing.
Our wedding was perfect and Jeff was a huge reason we enjoyed our day so much.

So fun and friendly
I have been to a few weddings with Jeff Marcus from Rock Around the Clock and have been impressed with him every time, which is why I chose him for my own. He really does a good job at keeping the flow going so it doesn't lag and get boring, while also not being cheesy or corny. He had everyone on their feet dancing and it was a blast. He sat down with us and went over every song we requested and what kind of genres we wanted. He does a great job at keeping everything running smoothly and is very professional!Sent on 07/15/2019
Rock Around The Clock Wedding and Event Entertainment's reply:Hi Grace and Elliott: Thanks for having me back for your wedding! Just like your sister's wedding, we all had blast at yours last weekend. It was great seeing everyone and catching up beyond Facebook. Yes, we've been down the wedding road together with a few of your friends who's weddings that I've done and it's always great to see you both! I'll look forward to seeing you at the next one :)

Best DJ in Arizona!
Jeff is truly the best DJ in Arizona! His attention to detail and efficient planning process it made it easy for us during the sometimes stressful period of planning for our wedding. He is so in tuned with the music landscape that he knew exactly what style of music we wanted and the right balance to get everyone at our wedding up on the dance floor the entire night! I don’t think the reception and ceremony would have gone as smooth as it did without Jeff. We are so appreciative and thankful that he was our DJ!Sent on 03/04/2019

Kelsey Chapman · Married on 02/23/2019
Don't hesitate... book Jeff!
Music was one of the most important parts of our wedding day - and WOW did Jeff do INCREDIBLE! Hiring a DJ had me anxious - I'm quite picky when it comes to my music choices, and I wanted to make sure our guests were on the dance floor all.night.long. Jeff did just that! Everyone was dancing the night away, and Jeff did such a good job of mixing our 'must play' songs with songs he knew would get people dancing (without being cliche). I'm SO HAPPY we booked Jeff! If you're deciding on a DJ... don't look any further. He knows what he's doing!! I was worried I would have to control the music selection all night, and I didn't have to think about it once. He played the perfect mix of 80s, 90s and today that got our friends in our 20s and parents in the 50s dancing to every song! AND all of his announcements were spot on! He followed our timeline perfectly and checked in with us throughout the night. We truly couldn't have asked for a better DJ and Master of Ceremonies!Sent on 03/25/2019
Rock Around The Clock Wedding and Event Entertainment's reply:Hi Kelsey and Andy...what a night! It truly was a party and full of great memories for you and your family and friends! Lots of happy times and we all had a blast celebrating with you on your once in a lifetime day. All the best and welcome to married life!

Awesome Wedding DJ
Jeff was great!My husband and I were really happy that we hired him to DJ our wedding. He sent us really helpful planning docs in advance. Then our pre-wedding meeting really helped to solidify things. His experience and knowledge was obvious as he talked us through the details and options of how to run everything smoothly to make sure our guests had a great time. I appreciated how he took the time to get to know our music styles and favorite songs. Our reception was a great time. Jeff did a superb job of keeping things moving at a good pace, energizing the crowd out on the dance floor, playing a great mix of upbeat and slow songs. Plus his updated idea of how to run the anniversary dance and keep people out on the dance floor was great. My family members came up to me afterwards to say how much they enjoyed how the DJ ran the reception. I would definitely recommend Jeff again!Sent on 01/26/2019
Rock Around The Clock Wedding and Event Entertainment's reply:Hi Bethany and Jake: Thanks so much for your very nice review. I loved getting a personal thank you email from your parents as well telling me how much my role in your wedding day meant to everyone. As you know, that is my mantra...to make sure EVERYONE has a great time and that your wedding stands out from all of the others regarding, service, communication, pacing, formatting and music mix. It was a memorable night and I'm so happy that I exceeded your expectations!

Perfect for all types of weddings!
Jeff did a wonderful job at our outdoor afternoon wedding reception. His music was upbeat and well known by all generations. He also did a great job motivating people to dance; we had a full dance floor most of the afternoon! Jeff utilized the specific song requests we made and did a great job developing a larger playlist based on our styles. We are grateful and very happy with the job he did.Sent on 01/17/2019
Rock Around The Clock Wedding and Event Entertainment's reply:Hi Whitney and Joshua...congratulations once again, newlyweds! I'm so glad I was available for your wedding date. I know you both got to see the magic I created at several other weddings that I performed at when you were guests and I'm thrilled that I was able to do the same for your wedding day!
Ashley · Married on 10/27/2018
For anyone who is looking to hire a DJ, my husband and I highly recommend Jeff! He was our DJ for our wedding and he rocked it! EVERYONE had a blast because of him! He read the crowd so wonderfully and played a variety of music to get everyone out on the dance floor:). He was also so entertaining, played a few games to get the crowd to laugh and had a great energetic personality on top of it😊 He was great at checking in with us on our timeline to make sure we were on track and also communicated very well with the photographer to make sure she didn’t miss a thing. To say the least, We loved him!!! So pick Jeff, you will not be disappointed 😃👌🏼Sent on 10/23/2018

Jeff was so great to work with from our very first meeting scouting potential DJ's, to the day of our wedding! He has so many great ideas which differentiates him from other DJ's, you definitely won't have a boring/typical event with Jeff on your team. He was very attentive to all of our questions and ideas, and genuinely wanted to make our day special. He has a great setup and extras that can help boost any event. I would highly recommend using Jeff for any and all of your DJ needs!Sent on 08/16/2018

Daina · Married on 05/27/2018
Jeff is simply terrific! He is very professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about his work. My husband and I hired him for our wedding and from the way he set up his equipment, the songs he selected, to how he played and transitioned from each song was excellent. We also added his lighting service for our reception which looked beautiful. We wanted a romantic, storybook ambiance to our wedding and that’s exactly what we received from Jeff. My favorite thing aside from his DJ and lighting: he took video snippets throughout our ceremony and reception and sent them to me so that we didn’t miss out on special moments.Sent on 06/16/2018

Chandra · Married on 04/07/2018
Jeff Marcus is brilliant at what he does. I did not give him a simple task, yet he flourished. My husband and I come from a background filled with music. We love all sorts of genres and artists, most are fairly underground. However Jeff incorporated many of them into our big day. He offered advice that helped us determine what type of music to play, and when. My husband and I have an intercultural relationship, and many of his family members speak mostly Spanish, and Jeff was able to put together a playlist that catered to ALL of our guests. He knew how to keep the party going throughout the whole night! He was great about ensuring we followed the timeline so vendors could get out on time, but was not pushy with it- he knew sometimes things run behind. One of the best things about Jeff was all of the videos he took of the dance floor. He was able to get things the photographer could not, and captured them in a way that was so candid. I would very, very highly recommend Rock Around the Clock! Thanks Jeff!!!!Sent on 05/23/2018
Rock Around The Clock Wedding and Event Entertainment's reply:Thank you very much Chandra and Andres for the heartfelt review. It really means so much to me when couples like you take the time to write a detailed review of everything I did so I know that I knocked it out of the park for you. Most couples never have any idea how much time I put into their wedding day that takes place behind the scenes to make sure everything runs as it should to allow you maximum time to celebrate. It was such a fun night and I'm glad you loved the special touch of surprising you with the video highlights of your ceremony and reception.
Alex · Married on 02/23/2018
Our wedding went more wonderfully than we could have EVER expected, and we are completely sure that this is entirely thanks to Jeff at Rock Around the Clock.Sent on 03/29/2018
The ceremony was beautiful, his music timing was faded in and out to perfection and the music as people were coming in gave the feeling we were going for. Once it was time for the reception, the uplighting we wanted was a difficult color to get out of normal lights, we had a very specific blue that lights often don't hit, but Jeff had the exact color we needed that really brought the room all together. Our guests danced all night long, ALL OF THEM.
During the planning process, Jeff made sure he understood what our tastes in music were and what our guests may enjoy. He puts a lot of time and thought into how to give you every activity you want without it feeling overbearing to the guests.
Jeff is so much more than just a DJ, he is a wonderful person to talk to, he communicates with your other vendors to make everything run smoothly, he gets candid video of your guests having fun, and most importantly he is an artist of your wedding ambiance.
If we ever need another DJ for ANYTHING, we will always ask Jeff first. Thank you for making our day come out of our dreams and into reality.

Lily · Married on 01/20/2018
My husband and I interviewed a few potential DJs for our wedding this last January before unanimously agreeing on DJ Jeff. And boy, we couldn't be happier with our decision! We came away from our meetings with him with the confidence that our Big Day was in good hands. DJ Jeff clearly knows his craft! To make his life a bit harder (wink, wink),we had a multicultural wedding featuring a playlist comprised of traditional music and our sample 70s, 80s, 90s and current Top 40 selections. He did an amazing job keeping our guests entertained and the dance floor packed during our reception. It was truly a blast! There is a fine line between MC'ing and just plain ol' interrupting the festivities with too many announcements. DJ Jeff more than achieved that balance. He knew just when to interject to keep the crowd going and let the music speak for itself the rest of the time. He was great at gauging the multicultural crowd, knew just what to play to keep the momentum going and greatly contributed to the atmosphere of our special night. Way to go DJ Jeff! We wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend him for your Big Day.Sent on 03/19/2018
