We were incredibly fortunate to have everything go just as we imagined. Adagio went above and beyond in finding the music we wanted, which truly set the mood and tone of our ceremony and reception. We had people on the dance floor until the very end thanks to Krista's experience... Read More and knowledge of how to keep the flow going. A "must do" for us was trusting in Krista to handle everything related to music, sound and announcements the day of; it made the day worry-free so we could do what we were supposed to be doing - enjoying the night. We had one small hiccup that was our fault, not Adagio’s, at the last hour due to our requested songs being somewhat of a challenge to find. Thankfully, Krista was calm and cool-headed the entire time and, with Jay, found a way to make everything happen. We are grateful for this because, as mentioned above, it set the mood and feel for the night. Thank you Krista, Jay and all those who we weren't aware of that helped make our night perfect.

Love, love, love Adagio Djays! The online tools we received when we booked were very helpful to help us plan what type of music we wanted and was extremely organized. They have a large library of music, and even allow you to ask for additional music not in their library! The... Read More prices for Adagio were very competitive and we felt that we got a lot for what we paid for. We were assigned Hannah and we cannot speak highly enough of her! Even a month later, our guests are still telling us what a great Djay she was and how much they loved her music selections. She was very friendly and called us about 2 weeks prior to our event to make sure she had the feel of our event down and to clarify what type of music we like. Thank you, Hannah, for being so great!!

If could rate Adagio and our DJ Kelsey higher than a 5 - I would. Your company is amazing and Kelsey was phenomenal. From when she got there to when she was packing up - she was always VERY attentive to our needs. I mean - she offered to go in the rain for me NUMEROUS times... Read More in the event I needed anything. She coordinated timelines with my other vendors so my family and I didn't even need to worry. She even cleared plates off our head table before speeches so that pictures would look better. She was better than my best expectation. I've been to numerous weddings and have heard many horror stories of DJ's gone wrong. They can really make or break a wedding. I am so happy with my choice of using Adagio! It wasn't the cheapest option, but it also wasn't the most expensive. As far as I'm concerned, I got more than what I paid for - Kelsey truly made my experience amazing.

We had an expectation mismatch with Adagio, we were told in our consultation that we would have a DJ assigned to us about a month before and it ended up being about a week before. If I had it to do again I would have gotten all the timelines in writing so we were on the same... Read More page. The catalog of songs was somewhat generic but we were able to get all of our special requests for songs taken care of without issue. DJ Micheal was excellent! 5 stars for him.

I am glad we went with Dan. He was great. Jordan and I spent a lot of time with our music selection and planning so we filled out all of the documents provided in the planner and were very detailed. Dan followed it to a T. The only thing both Dan and I forgot that I had wanted... Read More was to play a song of my sister's and recognize her.

He was very responsive throughout the night to my needs, the groom's needs, and my parent's needs. We have gotten a lot of great feedback about how great of a party we had.
