My then-fiancée put me in charge of getting a DJ, something I was not looking forward to. I contacted 9 DJs in the Charleston area for our wedding. AJ, and Ascend Entertainment, was the last person I called on the list. Immediately, I just had a good feeling about Ascend. As... Read More someone who contacted many different companies, I can say that Ascend will always have a competitive price compared to the others but they also have that extra something special about them (if you’ve talked with them on the phone, you may already know). AJ and the team are extremely responsive with every email or text message being responded to within 10-20 minutes (even passed midnight). Although it is not necessary to pick songs, as they already have great playlists, if there are any must-have songs at the wedding, their library is easy to navigate. In the off chance they don’t have a specific song in their library, they can get it! The weeks before the wedding, we spoke with Ascend about the order of our events for our reception and they offered great advice from all of their experience. We specifically had AJ at our wedding. He has a great personality and got the party going in no time. He kept to the schedule and knew exactly how to transition from one part to the next. It truly was a fantastic day and we definitely attribute a lot of it to AJ and the Ascend Team. We would highly recommend Ascend Entertainment, without reservation.

I've not met any other DJ's in the Charleston area but I'm confident that if you choose anyone else for your wedding, then you will be accepting 2nd best. When we first read these reviews, we thought they were fake because we doubted that anyone could be that good.....and now we are writing one of these 'fake' reviews! We can't thank you enough AJ.
