Absolute DJs was wonderful to work with from beginning to end! We planned our wedding in Springfield, OH from Columbus which was challenging. Tom, our DJ, drove 30 miles out of his way to meet us in person at our venue on a Sunday, and worked around our crazy schedule to have a... Read More late night FaceTime meeting a few weeks before the wedding. Our wedding day was crazy, as to be expected, and we were pulled in all directions, unable to keep control of all the things that needed to happen on my very strictly planned schedule. Tom kept us on pace through all of the formalities without pushing us to rush. The flow of the night felt perfect and it was very much due to his ability to control the evening from the DJ booth. My big request was to set off paper lanterns at dusk. Tom worked appearing seamlessly with our photographers and videographer to get the entire wedding (a big one!) outside the pavilion to participate and make a vision come to life! Can't thank Tom and Absolute DJ's enough for making our night incredible! I highly recommend the company!

Doug was absolutely amazing! He walked us through every step of the night both before (in our planning meetings) and during the reception itself. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing during the whole reception because Doug had absolutely everything handled. He and...

He was open and honest with us and talked through all the charges. He helped us pick out music and played what was appropriate for the audience.

We were extremely pleased with the full experience we had with Absolute-DJ. They were very helpful in getting the music and lighting prepared for the wedding. Both Doug and Tom were very professional, energetic, and passionate about their work which put us in ease...we were in... Read More good hands. The site experience they provide is fantastic. It really helped us plan the music and schedule for key parts of our reception. And lets just say without Tom DJing our wedding, we would have been cutting the cake at 10. He was awesome in keeping us on track and making sure the night progressed as we planned. And most importantly, he kept the guests dancing all night long. They also have other services like lighting. Heck yes! It was easy to have them provide the Uplighting instead of pulling in another vendor. They were able to have the Uplighting on the dance floor flash to the music once the party started. We had a blast working with Absolute-DJs!

I cannot say enough about Doug Haney and Absolute DJs. My husband and I were very impressed from the first meeting with his online tools for selecting music. Absolute DJs had tons of great music to select and even got some custom songs for us for special dances. Doug was a... Read More tremendous Emcee - he really kept the flow going and was super organized! Doug has a great style and personality that really made the reception fun. Doug helped us pick great music for dinner and was on-point for all of our unique aspects of the reception. Doug took requests but still played the music we really wanted. And, Doug asked us before playing a song with foul language, which helped us get the song played later in the night when most of the people who might have been upset were gone, which made everyone happy! If you want a great reception, just call Doug at Absolute DJs. You will be very happy you did.

Doug was the most amazing DJ I could have asked for to help us celebrate our wedding. I literally cannot say enough great things about his business and him personally. When I spoke to him on the phone while talking with DJs for the wedding, he was extremely professional; I also... Read More enjoyed how he was able to make a few jokes and made it seem like I was talking to a friend. I knew as soon as I spoke to him that's who I wanted as my DJ.

During the wedding, he and April went above and beyond by helping out in every aspect, which I am extremely grateful for. The fact he exceeded my biggest request (having people dancing all night, from my 2 year old cousin to my 84 year old Grandfather and Great Uncle) is what created the best night ever.

Doug Haney

I have been in the business since 1992 and truly enjoy and take a personal pride in conducting weddings. I handle every one as if it was my own son or daughters which I as a parent have been through both. I have had a full time job since 1995 with a large communication company and am a real estate investor as well. The point I am making is this is not something I have to do it is something I love doing and I think you will agree that when hiring someone under these terms that enjoys what they do it will show in their performance rather then someone that just does it for the money alone.
