More like "DOUBLE WOW" Factor DJs
Let me start this review off with a little backstory. My, now, husband and I live in Columbus, OH. My family has had a home in northern MI for three+ generations. When we got engaged, it took us less than 24 hours to decide we would get married "up north". That being said, we knew it would make planning more difficult as we live 7 hours away and had no extra time to come north before the wedding. So basically, we were flying blind. ALL of our vendors did an exceptional job but Chuck... he was off.the.charts. I mean it is un-freaking-real how many of our guests complimented his work. I'll be honest.... when we were researching DJ's I found it a little sketchy that Chuck had a perfect rating. I thought FOR SURE, "he paid for these reviews, there's no way any vendor gets this many perfect ratings." If you're reading this, let me tell you, I WAS WRONG! Every single review is legit. Chuck is LEGIT. I was more nervous and stressed about the music at our reception than ANY other detail of our wedding day. We had a large and diverse crowd and my husband and I love a healthy mix of the old, oldies (Bille Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong), classic rock (the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen) and of course, graduating in 2012, we love a good hip-hop, rap song. I struggled to articulate to Chuck the importance of playing a healthy blend of all genres while completely avoiding the "traditional" wedding reception songs. But here's the thing, I didn't need to. Chuck just got it. I don't know how but this guy just gets it. Put your faith in him and he will not do you wrong. And here's my favorite part of this review- the above mentioned is only a tribute to his talent as a DJ. There is so much more to be said about Chuck. From our very first phone conversation to the moment my husband and I left our reception, Chuck was both professional and personable. He is the kind of person you meet and you feel like you have known him forever. Every interaction was professional but more importantly, he was FUN! I genuinely think he had fun at our wedding, WITH us, and that is a very underrated trait you should be looking for when hiring a DJ. Also, as the bride, you might find yourself asking for the mic during dinner because you've "got something to say!" and Chuck will be your hype man. Listen, if you're on the fence, take it from this type-A, call Chuck and get him booked. He will be your favorite wedding vendor- hands down! Oh and ps, this is also a guy that drove four hours round-trip for our reception. If that's not service, I don't know what is! Thank you, Chuck! We look forward to booking you again for a much anticipated anniversary party!Sent on 08/26/2019

Amazing wedding DJ!
Chuck was the most amazing DJ! From start to finish, he was very professional, knowledgable, enthusiastic, communicative, creative, and just simply amazing. We feel so incredibly lucky to have found him and booked him as our DJ for our wedding day! He did a fantastic job at our ceremony and reading our crowd at our reception. We had tons of guests on the dance floor the entire night! I think I even spent most of the night on the dance floor because the music fit our tastes exactly!!! I can't stress enough how special Chuck made our day. I would HIGHLY recommend him to any couple for their wedding day. Book Chuck!!!!! :)Sent on 09/07/2019

Wow is an understatement!
WOW is right!!! Chuck sure did bring the WOW factor. We interviewed many DJ's as this is a VERY IMPORTANT DETAIL! Picking the right DJ is crucial in pleasing your guests, and let me tell you BOOK CHUCK!! Every bride has their worries pre-wedding, and mine were that the dance floor would not be busy. Not once did I have that worry the day of!!! Chuck did an AMAZING job of keeping the dance floor busy and keeping our FLOW of events going- which is SO important. Our wedding guests still talk about how much of a blast they had 2 months post-wedding!! Chuck was personal and professional. He checked in with us and accommodated to our needs in the best way. I have been to a few weddings and there were times where they were just BORING because no one wanted to get out and dance or the flow of events was just not working. Weddings that are boring is strictly because of a poor DJ. We had Chuck this was not the case AT ALL! Not only did he do a fantastic job as a DJ, his MC skills are above and BEYOND! He was the perfect balance of everything you could want. Guests of all ages were out on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!!! I also laughed more than I ever had during the shoe game that Chuck so seamlessly put together. He was so patient with my sound-geek father and worked very well with him. His sound quality was amazing as the music was never blaring, but provided QUALITY sound. On top of all of it, his pricing was reasonable. You will not regret booking Chuck, he brings the WOW factor!! He truly made our reception the BEST EVER!Sent on 09/17/2019

Couldn’t have asked for better!
We had a great experience with Chuck! He was easy to communicate with, thoroughbin his planning and paid attention to details - down to confirming how to pronounce names! He had everyone up dancing, including members of my family I had NEVER seen on the dance floor before. I can’t remcommend him enough.Sent on 01/23/2019

We love Chuck!
Chuck with WOW factor DJ was amazing! He was so prompt with communication and responding to any questions we had. We were pretty specific with what we wanted our wedding music to sound like and he nailed it! He’s super easy going and easy to talk to. He definitely made me feel confident that we were choosing the right DJ for our big day! I would recommend him to any bride :) Thanks, Chuck!Sent on 01/10/2019

Chuck was excellent. We wanted a DJ that we could "turn loose" and trust to keep the party moving and Chuck did that and then some. He was flexible with his set-up time and always very professional. He made sure he coordinated not only with us but with our other vendors as well. Excellent experience with Wow Factor DJs! Highly recommended!Sent on 11/12/2018

Professional and fun!
We got married at a summer camp. Our ceremony was on one side of the camp, with electrical hook ups and everything but the reception was in a field on the other side of the camp. Chuck made it happen! He was very clear with what he needed and he was flexible when the dj area had to be moved. We had an outdoor party in September and he kept people moving and groovin under the stars!Sent on 11/26/2018
He came recommended to us by a few people and we can totally see why! He was wonderful.
A lot of our songs were not chart toppers but he made sure to have all the music we requested no questions asked.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for someone who is a professional and expert at their craft.
Thanks for making our wedding an event to remember!

Excellent value, good communication and great music selections
We were so impressed! Chuck, of Wow Factor DJ's, absolutely made our reception! We had a small wedding and the following day we held a larger, but more relaxed, reception and Chuck absolutely KILLED IT with his music choices! I was surprised to see he had some of his own lighting (which really set the party mood)! We absolutely had a blast and he made our reception so easy and stress free. I absolutely recommend using his services.Sent on 12/01/2018

One of the best in Michigan!
We had some different song choices than most couples, but he had them all! He helped us with our schedule and kept people on the dance floor all night. Very responsive and accommodating!Sent on 11/26/2018

Above and beyond experience!
We loved having Chuck as our DJ. Has a great planning guide, very experienced, called us the week of to make sure he pronounced everything correctly and was on the same page with the plan for the big day. Very flexible. The music was GREAT. Perfect mix of what we requested be played at the reception and reading the room. SO many people danced at our wedding it was awesome. And he was spot on with all the songs we picked out at the ceremony and key reception songs (cake cutting, etc). It was great, very happy we went with him.Sent on 11/16/2018

Chuck made sure that our daughter's wedding reception was so fun! To be honest, we really didn't know much about hiring a DJ. Our wedding coordinator said that having a good DJ really makes (or breaks) the night, and she recommended that we consider Chuck. We are so glad we did. He worked well with our daughter and son-in-law, understood what they wanted--and didn't want--and then read the crowd and delivered. We still have guests telling us how fun the reception was, and that was thanks in huge part to Chuck.Sent on 08/08/2018

Really enjoyed Chuck and all that he did for us! Loved the music- he really catered to exactly what we wanted. The guests really enjoyed him, as well! He met with us before the wedding to ensure he was meeting our needs! Highly recommend!Sent on 08/08/2018

Chuck was a great DJ for our wedding! His planning guides made organizing our event and song requests a breeze, and he was very easy to work with. Our guests had a great time dancing, and he played a wide variety of music to accommodate our crowd. He was also awesome about taking requests and judging the best time to play them, as well as making announcements to keep the event flowing without being cheesy. We would highly recommend Chuck and Wow Factor DJ for your events!Sent on 07/30/2018

Chuck sets the tone for an A+ night
I booked Chuck for our wedding after hearing him at another wedding because I thought he was THAT good. My husband is a big music guy and we both love to dance, so our DJ was an important decision for us. Chuck was phenomenal to work with. He was so easy going and really set the tone for our entire night. He was able to read our crowd and keep the party alive. We would book him again in a heart beat if we were throwing a party.Sent on 12/07/2018

We're very happy we had Chuck as our wedding DJ. He was very easy to work with and kept the party going throughout the night. The dance floor was always full of people of all ages because of the music he played. Chuck is very friendly and personable as well. He made us very comfortable and did a great job keeping our guests up to date on what was happening throughout the night. We highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a DJ.Sent on 08/02/2018

Chuck is AMAZING. We had a guest list of about 190 people, most of which were 21-26 years old, so it was a huge party. Chuck did such a good job of playing music that kept everyone on the dance floor for the whole night. He was easy to work with leading up to the wedding, and even helped us with recommendations for the reception and the timeline for the evening. His knowledge in music is astounding and he has a great sense of what songs people will and won't like to hear. I'll wholeheartedly recommend him to everyone I know that needs a DJ. Do yourself a favor and hire Chuck! You won't regret it!Sent on 07/16/2018

could not have asked for a better dj
Chuck was great to work with. He kept the dance floor packed all night. Our wedding was 6 months ago and people are still telling us that they loved our dj.Sent on 12/20/2018

Chuck was a blast to work with and did a fantastic job at our wedding reception! He picked up on our musical tastes right away, seamlessly incorporated our song suggestions throughout the evening, and was able to offer us really helpful advice based on his extensive prior experience which was really helpful in determining the order of events during the reception (something we wouldn't have thought of without his expertise). He maintained the party energy at just the right level through happy hour, toasts, dinner, and dancing and kept people dancing until the very end of our reception. We'd hire him again in a heartbeat!Sent on 08/23/2018

Best dj ever!
I wish there were more stars to express how AWESOME Chuck was on our wedding day! from curating the most perfect soundtrack to our day, to making sure we stayed on time and keeping all of our guests partying on the dance floor all night long! From our first phone call with Chuck I knew we would be in good hands, he offers great suggestions for certain aspects of our evening, and put our minds at ease the week before when we had our final phone call! This company is absolutely fantastic and I will recommend them every single time someone asks for a DJ!Sent on 09/15/2019

Can’t go wrong with Wow Factor
Chuck was the BOMB! We had a last minute change of venue and he rolled with the punches. He kept everything organized and checked in with us but was not bothersome. He knows how to do his job and he does it well! Plus, you could tell he was having fun too! Dance floor was packed all night long and he was very receptive to requests. So many compliments on how fun the night was. THANK YOU CHUCK!!Sent on 11/27/2018
Allison · Married on 01/06/2018
Chuck was hands down the best DJ we could've had at our wedding! He was able to read the crowd and knew exactly what music to play to keep the dance floor going. On the day of we had a few last minute changes and Chuck was super accommodating and rolled with everything perfectly! What really made Chuck stand out to us a DJ was that when I reached out he made it a priority for us to meet with him in person and go everything we would need to know. It completely eased our minds and we left with full confidence that Chuck was the best person for the job. Would highly recommend him to anyone!! Thanks Chuck! :)Sent on 01/25/2018

Working with Chuck was easy, fun, and very reasonably priced. Reserving our services was very low maintenance, and he was very flexible with our song requests! He even accommodated our concern about line-dance style songs (think Cupid Shuffle, the Wobble, YMCA, etc) being too long and boring by mixing out of the tracks early into other songs. Our only slight issue was that it was sometimes difficult to hear his announcements, but that's to be expected in a large room of over 200 people mingling and talking. Overall, we had a great experience and would definitely recommend Wow Factor DJ to any brides in the Grand Rapids area.Sent on 02/11/2018

Chuck is an awesome DJ! We used him at our annual Christmas party this year. He did a great job with the music during the different stages of the party, and everyone had a blast once the dancing started. He knew how to read the group and played hit after hit. Our friends and family loved it – best party yet!Sent on 12/22/2017
