Roger was the second DJ we met with and we explained to him our concerns when it came to the only other "highly recommended" DJ we met with. We wanted the wedding to be about us and our friends and family and to just let the night happen whether it be everyone on the dance floor or noone and the other DJ we met with made it clear that they would MAKE SURE everyone got on the dance floor and my fiance and I didn't love the idea or having a DJ force others to dance - Roger did not have to force anyone his great selection in music along with our requests made everyone dance all on there own! Roger was so amazing and worked with us every step of the way when it came to what we wanted to hear and what we did not want to hear. He was professional yet fun. All night he always made sure we were ok and it meant the world to have another person looking out for us. He literally was amazing and all of the guests said it was the best wedding they had ever gone to and literally everyone danced and trust me neither of our families are the dancing type so it shows how great Roger was and how special he made our day. THANKS ROG WE LOVE YOU!! Could not have even imagined a more perfect DJ for our wedding.

Thank you soooo much for an absolutely wonderful experience. I loved the variety of music played and the way everything flowed together. Roger was so professional and kept the pace of the event flowing. When we wanted to start dancing sooner then was planned he helped to get that started and get things moving along, and boy was everyone happy about that! I loved how he helped to tell our guests what was happening and what they should be doing so that we could just enjoy ourselves. He did a great job organizing the bridal party at the beginning informing us how we would be announced, and even brought the groom and I a drink when we first sat down to eat dinner. Paying attention to details is what makes him so good! Roger has a great selection of music, and can read the guests well to know what will get them moving! We especially loved the God Bless the USA moment and how meaningful it was to us! Thank you so much for the wonderful surprise CD at the end. Roger you seriously made the night for us, thank you so much!

When Rog showed up to our venue, he got right to work. He made sure the last minute change for different microphones was not a problem and the ceremony went smoothly! He played the music right on cue and it went off without a hitch!! The reception went just as smoothly. What I liked the most was that Rog (and his son) went with the flow. The introductions were fantastic and fun, the formal dances were amazing, and we even did dancing through the years. The one thing that sticks out in my mind was that in the middle of the reception, everyone was on the floor dancing (I'm the bride and I didn't leave the dance floor) and there was a point where Rog said, do you want to do the garter toss? At our meeting I thought it would be nice to do one, however in the midst of the dancing I thought it would be such a shame to have everyone sit down, so I asked him to skip it. There was no question, he just made sure that's what I wanted. The rest of the reception continued and we danced the entire night. There was such a great variety of music that all ages of our guests were on the floor! At the end of the night, Rog handed me a CD of all the songs played during the big moments of our wedding. That was such a thoughtful thing to do and I appreciated that very much. Everyone who attended our wedding said it went perfectly and they had a great time. I can honestly say it was because of Rog. There not a single bad thing you could say about him. He was professional, prompt and fun to work with! I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to have an amazing day!
Thanks so much Rog for making this the best day of our lives!

My husband and I got married 6/10/12 and Rog was just fantastic. We just moved to the area and read reviews to try to find a great DJ- the other reviews were so right because Rog and Tophat were AWESOME! Rog was extremely diligent about responding to any possible questions almost immediately. He was so helpful and always offered any advice or assistance. Throughout the whole experience, from booking, leading up to the wedding, and through the whole wedding day, he was so incredibly professional and pleasant. Rog did both our ceremony and reception and everything was seamless. He was so personable and easy to get along with. Our dance floor was packed the whole night (and we had many different types of guests- young to old, traditional to hip, etc). Everyone raved about how awesome the music/DJ was and couldn't stop complimenting what a great job he did. He kept the night flowing smoothly and took initiative to make sure things went as planned. Also, people made comments about how the volume of the music/etc was perfect... I had never even considered this, but people had said at other weddings the DJ was too loud or too difficult to hear in all areas- Rog was fantastic and people specifically said that he had the perfect volume. And the prices were very very reasonable, especially for the value that you get!
Overall, Rog and Tophat were just fantastic and you can't go wrong with them!! We were so lucky to have found him!

Roger made our wedding beyond our wildest dreams spectacular. From our first meeting to the first song he played during our cocktail hour to the AMAZING hora remix he found to the last surprise song of the night, he was an all-star. Best of all, our dancefloor was LITERALLY packed all night long!
The DJ at a wedding really sets the tone for the whole night, and he didn't miss a BEAT in making sure our wedding was everything we wanted and more. We spent a lot of time researching DJs, and we heard so many rave reviews about Roger and his ability to not only play fantastic music, but to emcee and run the whole night with ease. We are so SO SO SO happy we went with Top Hat DJs!
Roger is truly incredible at what he does! I can't praise him highly enough for making our evening unforgettable. Thanks, Roger, for filling our dancefloor all night long, for playing a FANTASTIC mix of music, for giving us much-needed extra A/V help with our slideshow, for playing TWO songs when we couldn't find my mom during the cake-cutting, and for playing all of the songs that we love! Thanks to Roger, our night was seamless, from our first dance to our very last dance. We can't recommend him highly enough!
