There are both good and bad points with this company. I guess I will start with the bad. The communication is HORRIBLE! Now I did book about a year out but If your client has a question they should not have to email 4 or 5 times and leave multiple voicemail's to get a call... Read More back. At one point I gave up and just submitted all of the paper work to see if that's why I had not heard back and still nothing. I literally had to call 10 days before the wedding to see what was going on. Now at this point they had hired a receptionist which was great and she sent over an urgent message for a call back and that's when I spoke to Steve directly. Steve himself was not working our wedding so we had to wait for our DJ to reach out. The actual DJ did reach out about week before the wedding and He was AWESOME! ( Sutle Productions - Check him out). The lack of communication was the really the only bad thing. Now we paid over $700 for 5hrs honestly I feel that was over priced but it is what it is. Now I can say when we met with Steve he was super nice and explained everything very well. My husband really clicked with him that the main reason we booked him. Over all we are happy we picked Steve and his crew and would recommend him to others.
