Hard-working posted 5/25/2013

My DJ would call/email me to see what he could do to help with the wedding and offered several suggestions. He put in extra work to piece individual songs to our entire bridal party as we requested. Very satisfied with this company.

Easy to work with posted 10/8/2012

Direct Entertainment was great with helping us with our DJ and videography. We filled out the required forms with all the info they needed, and they were in contact with me in the couple weeks prior to the wedding to make sure all was good. Since I review music, I wanted to do the playlists for the wedding all myself. There was no problem with this, and I mailed the discs to the DJ and he happily obliged. The only thing was that the last song for our ceremony was wrong. Also, we had a few moments of confusion during the reception (beginning) because of the speeches, etc. and felt we needed to be guided a little bit more as to what was going on and what needed to be done, etc. Other than that, everything was great and both the DJ and videographer were very nice, accomodating, and professional.

AWESOME posted 10/7/2012

We are so, so happy with Direct Entertainment. We located them on The Knot originally, and were so easy to get into contact with. The lady we spoke with via email was great at emailing back usually within 24 hours. They offered discounts, as well, which was enticing. Their DJ service is one like I have never seen or heard of before. We were able to create our own custom playlist for the wedding, so nothing was played that we didn't want played! Our DJ, John, was awesome and stuck to that playlist. We were able to tell him to not accept requests, and he did just that. He was flexible and wasn't afraid to approach us throughout the evening. The crowd involvement/interaction was perfect as well, just the amount we wanted. He was fun and had good ideas. He was on time and set up well before the reception started...none of that nonsense like other DJ's setting up as guests are coming in. They were totally awesome, their website is amazing, and I would recommend Direct Entertainment to everyone!

Great DJ posted 9/18/2012

We used direct entertainment for our wedding and our DJ Charles did an amazing job!! After announcing the wedding party he got drinks for me and my groom. He played all the songs on our playlist and added some other good ones along with it. He even had us start a Congo line around our whole reception venue!

Amazing Videographer! posted 8/7/2012

My husband and I used Direct Entertainment for our videography services for our wedding. They made everything so easy from paying online, to quick response e-mail communication. This was essential to my wedding planning as I was planning an out-of-state wedding. Richard was an amazing person and videographer on our wedding day! He was so professional and personable. We also forgot at times he was even there, but know he captured every moment of our special day. We received so many complements from our guests about how nice Richard was. This bride highly recommends Direct Entertainment for Videography! :)

Amazing! posted 3/22/2012

Everything was perfect. We hired Direct Entertainment for our Photo, Video and DJ. Everything was perfect. The Photographer and Video guy were great staying out of the way. We thought this would affect our pictures, but when we received them back, we had no idea he was even taking pictures, so alot of candids as we requested. The video was top notch as well. Great quality and everything we requested and more was included. The DJ was amazing. He was professional and classy as Direct Ent. indicated. He listened to us and made some suggestions as well, which we liked as it was our first wedding. The end result was a packed dance floor and us and my guests having the time of our lives! We owe it to Direct Entertainment and would highly recommend to anyone! ...

If I could give less than one star I would. Not only did the DJ disregard my "please play list" until I yelled at him (the groom), but he played pretty much everything from my do-not-play list as well. To cap the beginning of our entertainment, we were able to fast dance (?) to 'Proud to be an American' (we're anti war) without any regard to common social, appropriate behaviors; this actually offended approximately 60% of my attendance.

When I asked him to skip the songs on his playlist, he told me that "you can't mess with a dj's playlist", but finally played 10 of the 40 songs that we had requested. Upon receiving a survey, I replied honestly with my concerns; Direct Entertainment's response was to forward us a nasty email from "ddj chuck". I wouldn't recommend this service to ANYBODY, even someone I don't like.

Pretty good posted 10/25/2011

We had both DJ and videographer services from here. The videographer was amazing and did an excellent job! The DJ did well for the most part, though he did mess up the bridal party introductions. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Good Deal posted 10/12/2011

I found them on the internet and they were offering and early bird special in Feburary. Save a hundred dollars. I met with the Ron the DJ, about 3 weeks before the wedding and meant to follow up days before the wedding, but it was Ron calling me to make sure everthing was still on. He played a wide selection of R&B and current pop songs, and took requests. Ron also coordinated with the Wait staff and photographer, to see what the timeline was and important moments were photgraphed. Went up and beyond what I image his job responsibilties were.

Not what I expected posted 9/18/2011 (modified 11/2/2011)

What I had found in planning my wedding was that the DJ was the most difficult thing to book because I had little history with booking any. Direct entertainment provided the DJ for my wedding and I was disappointed. The price that I was quoted at was resonable but the DJ's equipment was very poor. At one point during the wedding the music cut off for about 5-10 seconds and it kept doing this through out the night. The DJ was great at picking songs to get the crowd going but only played about 3 of the songs that I requested. At the end of the night the DJ never apologized for his equipment failure or offered me any type of discount. Needless to say I was disappointed.

Vendor Comments

There was One song that cut out and was restored within 10 seconds. The microphone gave feedback due to the facility, nothing that we did. We put fresh batteries in for every wedding. The bride initially did not have a song request list other than ...
