This is our third wedding that Steve Bender Entertainment has been DJ for and, obviously, they have done an amazing job each time or we wouldn't have considered them after the first wedding. Steve has been the DJ two out of the three; he is very professional and easy to work with and does an Awesome job. There is an online planner where you can pick all your songs. The list has everything, but if not seeing something I am sure Steve will find it for you. The planner also helps you to plan the evening with a timeline, event highlights and any other requests you may have. Steve provided a microphone for the ceremony and music for the cocktail hour and reception. If you need something, Steve can provide it. If you are looking for a reception with a full dance floor from the first to the last dance, you will not be disappointed with Steve Bender Entertainment. We Highly Recommend!!
Great DJ ServiceReviewed on 3/05/2014
We hired Steve Bender Djs because all of our vendors recommended them. We had a great time and all the guests danced all night. They stayed on top of everything and we learned so much actually from their tips they sent us. We have recommended them to several of our friends so we expect to see them again.
Absolutely perfect day! Thanks to our DJ! Everyone of our guests had a complete blast, and raved about how great the music was! We were so happy we went with Steve Bender Entertainment! And we were so lucky to have Steve be our DJ for the night! Thanks again for everything!
Very entertaining! Steve Bender is worth the money, very personable and able to keep the crowd going all night. We got many compliments from our guests.
Our DJ, Bobby, did a fantastic job! He was very professional and did a great job of emceeing our reception. He played all of the songs we requested. He even gave me a couple of suggestions to adjust my timeline during our planning, which worked out great. All of our guests had a lot of fun. We will highly recommend Steven Bender Entertainment!
We had the opportunity to work with RJ, he did a fabulous job! I couldn't ask for anything better, RJ and I spoke on the phone for a good 3o minutes a few days prior to the wedding and he made sure he did everything I asked him to do. I had a special version of the father/daughter dance that he made sure he used. I would recommend RJ!
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 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.
Steve did a fantastic job with my sister’s wedding! He was very easy to work with, wanted to make sure all of the bride’s request were met and played great music all night. We highly recommend him for any event you have where you need a DJ that has great music selection, is easy to interact with, and sure to make your event a success!
We had an amazing night with Matt Fry from Steve Bender Entertainment. He was extremely organized, helped assist with timelines, very professional and easy to work with. Could not have had a better night!!
We had the pleasure of working with RJ on the day of our wedding. He was SPECTACULAR! He listened to our requests and made sure that everyone on the dance floor was having a great time, which they did. Highly recommend this company.
Bobby, our DJ from Steve Bender, was flexible to our busy schedule and was fantastic the night of the wedding! We got a lot of compliments on the great music and how smoothly the night ran, largely in part to his talent. I would recommend them to everyone.
Amazing experience! Went above and beyond our expectations!
Joe Griffin was our premier DJ for our wedding and he was incredible! He was friendly, accommodating, and professional throughout the entire process. We didn't have to worry about a single thing as he clearly knew what he was doing and we felt so confident having him MC and DJ the night's festivities. He did exactly as we asked and kept the party flowing with minimal interruptions. Steve was wonderful to work with as well - organized, responsive, and so helpful. We would definitely recommend Joe and Steve Bender for any event.
My husband and I were beyond satisfied with the quality of service by Steve at our wedding reception. We booked Steve after attending several weddings he was working at as well as several recommendations by these same people. We decided to use Steve because we knew not only would he play great music but he would be a great MC for the event. We had only 4 hours for our event and we were slightly worried about making sure everything would happen in a timely manner but with Steve there helping to control this, we had nothing to worry about! We have had several compliments so far on the quality of the music at the event and we ourselves are also very happy with the selections of music. I have never seen so many people still on the dance floor at the end of a wedding reception!! No one wanted the music to end, it was that good! If I had to do it over again I would book Steve, no questions asked.
Steve is very accommodating and puts you at ease. Michael our DJ did everything we asked and it went off without a hitch
It was an easy decision choosing Steve Bender Entertainment for DJ services for our ceremony and reception due to the great reviews. We were worried about our outdoor venue that had no electricity but Steve knew exactly what we needed and the ceremony was flawless! We had Matt as our DJ and we spoke over the phone the week of the wedding to go over the online planner and he understood exactly what we were going for. We did not want any of the cheesy or standard wedding songs. We listen to mostly alternative music and Matt did a good job of incorporating that into the night while still keeping it fun. The only reason I am removing a star is because towards the end of the night the music stopped and Matt was not around. We think maybe he had songs set to play but the equipment just didn't play? This was just one small glitch at the end of a perfect night. Other than that, he did an amazing job and we received tons of compliments on the music and the dance floor stayed pretty packed all night! We would very much recommend choosing Steve Bender for your wedding DJ needs!
Steve Bender entertainment was awesome! Mike was our DJ, and he kept everybody dancing and was great! We also got a Photo Booth through them and everybody loved it. I would recommend Steve Bender entertainment to any bride looking for a DJ that she can count on.
Steve was very professional and knew how to get the party going. Whenever the dance floor as starting to thin out, he knew exactly which song to play next to get everyone to rush out again. He was able to get every song we wanted and even worked in a personal recording. I would highly recommended Steve Bender to anyone looking for a DJ.
Matt was our DJ and definitely kept the party going all night! He made sure everything was on time and I was happy all night. He really helped get the party started and was overall incredible... thanks Matt!
Thank you so much!! You did an amazing job doing the music for my wedding on 9 September at Newport Aquarium and my reception! And you were able to work around my crazy schedule to get last minute song choices fit it!! Couldn't have asked for a better experience!!
We could not have been happier with Steve Bender Entertainment. Bobby Leach was our DJ for the evening and he was amazing. Our dance floor was not empty at any point in the night, and he kept the crowd engaged the whole time. Our wedding was so much fun and so perfect, and our DJ was absolutely perfect.
Bobby was our dj for our ceremony and reception. Everything went flawlessly. The online planner they have is very easy to use and has any and every song to choose to put on your list of do or do not play. I had no idea how the reception was supposed to run and I let Bobby do his thing and he was very organized and professional. The dance floor was full the entire night because of all the great music played! Highly recommend and would use again! Thank you!
We had Steve Bender himself and he was amazing!!!!! He helped me out a lot with ideas for my ceremony music. It's was a great time that is to him!
Bobby Leach from Steve Bender Entertainment was amazing! The website is really user friendly and helped me map out my timeline and roles for the Bridal party. I can choose songs for the "must play list" and the "do not play list" as well as songs for each event. The suggested songs were a huge help in our planning! Bobby constantly stayed in contact to see if I needed anything or wanted anything changed throughout the night. The lighting package was spectacular and affordable. They worked with me on my budget and I'm ecstatic with how it turned out!
