Working with 2bays DJs was such a blast! They’re such a fun group and worked with us to make all of our music so personal. They made sure we kept to our timeline and truly helped the overall flow of our wedding. Their online platform is so easy to use and they were in constant...

We had Travis as our DJ for our August wedding reception at a private country club. He was AWESOME and totally kept the energy positive the whole time! He checked with the bridal party to line us up for the introductions and even let us hang out a couple extra minutes to catch... Read More out breath and let the photographer take some candid shots during the cocktail hour. We walked into 'You Sexy Thing' by Hot Chocolate. It was GREAT. He even set up an extra speaker and mics so we could do toasts on the lawn outside. Travis called me a couple days before the wedding to check in and make sure everything was going smoothly and he'd have a place to set up. He was super nice and even let us do odd things like share out father-daughter mother-son dance and halfway through we invited all the other mother-son and father-daughters in the audience to join us! He also encouraged everyone to go see the sunset over Lake Michigan - the out of town guests loved it. The best thing of all, was that nothing really stood out to me that night in terms of the whole DJ process and I think thats the way it should be! It should be so smooth and natural that the Bride & Groom can have a ball and not worry about whats going wrong or right! I would definitely recommend these guys!!! The site they provide to pick out songs takes a hot second to get used to, but if you save often, you can literally pick out all the songs you want in their "love it", "Like it", and "DO NOT PLAY" list. It was very easy to use and I found every song I wanted. They also have a timeline tab that you fill everything in on and can leave notes. Travis knew everything to a 'T'. A++++!!!

We were married back in August on a private property and 2Bays DJ's handled everything without a hitch. The ceremony, the speeches, and of course the dancing.

Me: "Hi, I'm insane and cannot pick a DJ because I'm too scared to commit and I want the best party/wedding of all time and I like to control every song played every second." 2Bays: "We got you!"

When it got down to it, I didn't have the time to make my music list and told Dan to just keep people moving (and don't play disco haha).... and that he did!

People are still calling me saying how amazing the DJ was and how amazing the songs were and the sound and everything! Don't look any further for the perfect DJ... this is it. TRUST ME!!!! It was the best party! Just how my husband and I wanted! :) Thank you Dan and 2Bays!

I knew hiring 2Bays was a good move based on the reviews I read, but I didn't realize just HOW amazing they were until our wedding day. Scott was our DJ, and due to some scheduling conflicts on our end, we didn't get much of a chance to talk before our wedding day. I sent him an...

Everything was professional, on-schedule, and so, SO fun! I can't wait to find a reason to hire them again. Highly recommended!!

Don't even think twice about booking them, just DO IT! you will not regret it!

Dan Kenny and 2Bays DJs completely exceeded our expectations for our September wedding in Leland. For starters, Dan was incredibly nice and generous with his time any time we had random questions about reception or wedding ceremony details. We got married at a vineyard that... Read More wasn't equipped for sound during the outdoor ceremony. We hadn't known this until the week of, but Dan came to the rescue last minute by setting up speakers and microphones for the ceremony itself. As for the reception, 2Bays had an incredibly comprehensive website that allowed us to (a) plan the entire timeline for the reception (detailed enough that we were able to schedule specific songs for different times, and allowed us to roughly track where we were in the night), (b) give proper pronunciations & intro music for the wedding party, and (c) create a very thorough "love" and "hate" list of songs. Dan knocked it out of the park, and had everyone on the dance floor all night. I can't recommend these guys enough, and would be happy to give a personal recommendation should anyone have any further questions on which DJ to go with.

These guys are the best in the business. Not just the best DJs but also topped the list of the best wedding vendors we worked with.

Well I have officially been married to my best friend for a month now and have had time to fully reflect on the experiance and all of the components that made my wedding weekend the best of my life. Something that I keep coming back to was the amount of unbridled energy we had... Read More from start to finish. This was not just because all of my friends are awesome. This was in large part due to the amazing job Scott and Dan (co-owners of 2baysdjs) did. These guys are not only professional they are just down right great humans.

They handled stressful situations from other vendors with skill and never let my wife or me see them sweat. I only plan on getting married once but I absolutely plan on hiring these guys again for a future event. I live in NYC and got married on Nantucket island.

2Bays DJ provided the music for our wedding at the Inn at Bay Harbor. Luke was our DJ for the night and did a fantastic job.

Read More necessary details for how you want your wedding to go in terms of music. Luke did a fantastic job of not only taking our song requests that we submitted, but really using it as a guide for the type of music and tone we were looking to set for our wedding. We had 140 guests at our wedding, from ages 18-80. I have had so many guests say they have never had more fun dancing at a wedding and the dance floor was packed the entire evening. I think a lot of the credit for this goes to Luke and 2Bays, as they really made sure to put together a great mix of music that everyone at the wedding could enjoy and dance to. Our photographer told us she had never seen a party so crazy at the Inn as our dance floor was. When we were looking for our DJ, we noted that a lot of the DJ companies in the Petoskey area seemed to be a little older and didn't really vibe with the type of reception party we were looking to have. 2Bays seemed like they were a little more in touch with modern music trends and that definitely turned out to be the case. If you are looking for a DJ company that has a great appreciation for music and knows how to put on a great party, you should definitely book 2Bays for your Northern Michigan wedding. I cannot recommend them enough. And if you are looking for a great DJ, make sure to ask for Luke.
