When we first started planning our wedding reception, we knew we definitely wanted a DJ. Bill Cody and his team came highly recommended from a couple of different sources. It was more comforting to know that he was a preferred vendor at our ceremony/reception site in Plano. We absolutely loved Bill and his services as a DJ. He was wonderful at keeping everything on pace and making sure we were happy with what was going on. He had our list of the songs we wanted played, important dances, and he kept everyone energized. At one point he even mentioned to us that if we didn't like the direction he was going with the music to let him know. We never had to though because everything he played was spot on for our personalities along with our guests. He had a great mix of music and was awesome at interacting with the guests. He had provided us his reception planning worksheet and was great at answering any of our questions. We were worried about how his equipment was going to fit because the dance floor was a bit small, but everything fit perfectly with nothing in the way or sticking out. He had his equipment set up for the reception right after the ceremony and we never skipped a beat. We also used his team to record our ceremony on video. This was again a wonderful service. The videographer was amazing and definitely reassured us that everything was going to be great. We were able to tape a brief message for our video after the ceremony, and he was very accommodating. We never had to worry about anything and we are most grateful for that.

Well I used Bill Cody's Party Time Productions for a couple of things. First let me say that Renee Hart who helped me out with it all was AMAZING! She is so responsive, attentive to details and knows her stuff! If you can request her - I certainly would! She was able to secure our Photobooth (green screen) for us. I had told her that I was interested in having a photobooth but wanted something to up that as many weddings include a photobooth nowadays. I am an actress and her idea of the Green Screen was perfect! You can pick 4 backdrops for the event. Then each group taking a picture can choose out of the 4. They were on time and had great communication with us. All of our family was very pleased and seemed to have a blast with it. The only thing I would have asked for was maybe laying out the 4 options somewhere visable so that the guests already knew what they wanted when it was their turn. They got very busy at the end! Ms. Renee also helped me with securing a gobo with our initials for the dance floor. It was easy to order and a great price! The company actually sent me the wrong size (i had no clue about this until after the wedding) but not to worry because Renee immediatly took care of the situation and the company quickly replaced it. Again Renee=Awesome! Our DJ was Stephen Kurtz - He was Fantastic! Request him!! We met several times and he always made me feel at ease and waited patiently for some last minute selections. I had no idea that there were so many choices and ladies and gents - A DJ can make or break your reception. I had attended several in the last year and Stephen was the absolute best! What I didnt realize is that the music guides a lot of the activities during the reception and it can make people be bored, go home OR never want to leave. My wedding was a little diverse as I am hispanic and Brady my hubby is caucasian. Well stephen catered everything from Country, pop, jazz, hip hop, cumbias and salsa! i specifically asked that it all be a equal not too much of any culture and he was spot on. Both of our families kept raving about him afterwards! He is well worth it! It was great to have Bill Cody's as a vendor - they are wonderful. If Renee had not been there to help me - not sure our wedding would have been as beautiful or as fun as it was. She was not our wedding planner but she certainly acted like it - Ask for her if you can - sorry Renee this means more work for you but that's what you get when you are awesome! - Rosaura C-W

WOW! He was awesome! Great dj, VERY professional, played the songs in the genre that we had described that fit us. Had people wanting to stay on the dance floor, involved the guests. Bill Cody's Party Time people were super friendly and very easy to work with. Very willing to answer any and as many questions as we had. If we ever need a DJ again or have friends needing one, they would Definitely be on the top of my list to recommend! Thank you Steven for a wonderful time! You helped make the night very memorable!

We can't thank DJ / MC James Corona enough for making our wedding reception a huge success! He and his assistant read our diverse crowd like a book and kept everyone dancing and entertained all night long. We even did they conga with glow sticks and baloons! The lighting they provided was perfect, the sound was even and the MCing provided by Mark, Corona's assistant, was top notch!
These guys are the best and worth every single penny. Plus, the price is downright cheap for the services they provide. No hidden charges, very up front and helpful and fun during planning. We lucked out with these guys!

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Bill Cody. He was extremly professional and totally dedicated to making our wedding reception the type of party we wanted. Bill did an excellent job of keeping the dance floor full and MC'ing our reception as well. He was a great resource for song suggestions and scheduling how we wanted our reception to flow. He works at our wedding reception venue and knew exactly where to place uplights so they looked best and where we should display our Gobo light. We pretty much used all options he had avaliable and it was still within our budget. You can't go wrong by using him.

I met with a couple of DJ's but stopped searching when I met Bill Cody. I really liked his charisma and he kept it going the entire night of my wedding.

Renee was my contact through Party Time Texas. She was very on top of everything. She would respond to me at all hours of the day and night and always very quick to respond. She had an answer to every question. She provided me with song recommendations and I found this very helpful. I used Stephen Kurtz as my D.J. He was great as well. He worked with the coordinator at the venue and everything went very smoothly. He played every song I requested and there was never an issue through the whole night. I highly recommend this company and Stephen.

This is an email my husband and I sent to Bill Cody and his wonderful assistant Renee after our wedding this past Friday:
Bill and Renee,
I cannot thank the two of you enough for everything you did to make our wedding such a huge party!! Everyone has commented on how we had the perfect balance that night. Our ceremony music was exactly what we wanted (and timed exactly right), our reception was a blast and our sendoff was absolutely perfect.
While a wedding day is one of the happiest days in a couples lives for so many reasons, the loss of my Dad obviously left a huge gap in the festivities. Bill, you helped keep the beat lively and everyone's spirits high. It is a gift so much greater than just an amazing DJ and we just cannot thank you enough.
With care and thanks,
Jess and Travis

Todd Payne did an AMAZING job! Due to my husband's busy schedule, we didn't have time to meet with Todd before the wedding. He was so kind to stop by our rehersal dinner just to say hello and meet us.
He was upbeat and fun. I was terrified of getting a 'cheesy' DJ, and I was so happy that Todd was far from that.
My wedding coordinator said Todd was one of the most professional DJs she has ever worked with...she told me not to worry b/c he knew exactly what he was doing.

After searching throughout the Dallas are, Party Time Productions was recommended to me by a friend who had used them for her wedding a year earlier. He meet with us beforehand so he had a good feel for what we wanted at our reception, on top of making sure my fiance and i could ask him anything at any time. He did a wonderful job at playing music we liked. He was also really good at watching the crowd and knowing what to play to keep the party going. Would highly recommend Bill Cody to friends for their weddings.

When we approached Bill Cody and told him we wanted a DJ that would keep people on the dance floor, he told us that's what he was all about. Bill did a PHENOMENAL job! He played interactive games with our guests, and even got my 83 year old grandma on the dance floor for "Shout". We had many many guests tell us how much fun they had at the reception and that Bill was the best DJ that they had ever seen at a wedding. He was a joy to work with, and completely exceeded our expectations. We can't wait to find a reason for a DJ so we can use him again :)

Bill does a great job...he's top notch! My family has been using him for years and we love him! He played everything we asked and nothing that we put on our do not play list. We danced more than we thought was possible!

I was referred directly to Ed Petty. He's absolutely the best! Everyone has complimented my DJ, and I firmly believe that he MADE my reception awesome!

The music was great, the lights were great, and it really felt like a party thanks to our DJ. The only complaint I have is that they didn't play every song we requested, and we didn't request enough songs to fill up the entire night. I also had a hard time getting in contact with the DJ as it got closer to the wedding, but when they did contact me, everything came together and it was great!

Our dj was Todd Payne. He was awesome! My husband and I love to dance as well as a lot of our friends! We told him that and that we wanted a great dancing energy and he ran with it! We had so much fun that we barely even left the dance floor! He is a great Dj with great people skills!!

The videographer had great ideas for special things to include in the video like messages to each other filmed right before the ceremony.
