Bob was fantastic, not only organized himself, but managed to organize us as well! I've never been to a wedding where the dance floor was so well-utilized. But if I had to pick a single adjective, it would be "professional" by a landslide.

Bob is a great DJ. From the initial outreach though the day of our wedding, he was very easy to get in touch with and very responsive. He took the time to help us pick out the perfect music for our ceremony and incorporated some special requests from us for our cocktail hour and... Read More dinner music. In addition, Bob was a great emcee - he helped us transition from one event to the next in such a way that we never felt rushed or worried about keeping to a schedule. Best of all, he kept our dance floor packed all night! He played the right music at the right time to keep our guests dancing. We got nothing but rave reviews from all of our guests about how much fun the dancing was. We got exactly what we hoped for in a DJ, and are really happy we chose Bob Raina.

My husband and I were skeptical about whether we even wanted a DJ at our wedding: we were all but set on renting some powerful speakers and setting up our own playlists. However, we are so glad that we went with Bob. He made the evening run more smoothly, facilitated toasts, and... Read More reacted to the crowd in a way that kept the energy high on the dance floor.

Bob was Absolutely Great! After witnessing some lack luster DJ's and convinced that we would never use a DJ at our own wedding, we meet Bob while taking part in a close friends wedding and were really impressed. Upon doing our own wedding planning we immediately booked Bob, and... Read More could not be happier that we did! Throughout the whole process Bob kept in constant contact making sure that all the details were in place. We meet with Bob a month before our wedding to go over specifics, from that meeting we came up with a songs list based on our personal style and reviewed the pronunciation of everyone's name so there would be no mistakes. On the wedding day Bob got to the site early and got set up for both our ceremony and reception. He coordinated great wit the other vendors and the whole event went off without a hitch. Our ceremony was perfectly timed and the music was excellent. Bob really took charge of reception, he meet with the wedding party to go over the order of the evening and kept the whole night flowing. Our music was the very best, our guests all commented on how great Bob was and we could not have been happier with the whole experience. Four months later we are still getting comments on how great the music was at our wedding. We have and will continue to recommend Bob to all of our friends, families, and strangers.Bottom Line If you are looking for a great professional DJ Bob is your guy!

Bob Raina is an incredible disc jockey. He took the time to meet us and get to know us, which helped him understand our vision for our special day. We met several times as we planned our event, and he was able to meet our every need. He offered his suggestions and made valuable... Read More contributions to the social hour, dinner and reception that we would not have considered otherwise. He worked in a new venue and took the time to arrive extra early to insure that all was set up properly and without complications. Our guests have continued to comment on how great the music was – and how they have never danced so much at a wedding before. He is able to read the crowd and play music to keep them on the dance floor. He also was able to take our special requests and even change things up at the last minute. He is professional, dedicated and far exceeded our expectations. I wish we had more parties that we could utilize his services for! We recommend Bob without reservations and insure that any event, any crowd – he will get them out there dancing.

My Husband Eric and I booked Bob Raina to DJ our wedding this past June and we are extremely happy with our decision! From our fist meeting with Bob to the end of our reception he proved to be very professional, knowledgeable, fun and pleasant. Bob did a fantastic job making... Read More sure our entire event went as planned which allowed for a very smooth flowing, stress free evening. Bob made sure he included all of our requested songs and was also very creative and able to "read the crowd" so there was never a dull moment! Everyone at our wedding was out on the dance floor having a great time, thanks to Bob! He was very articulate, pronounced all of our wedding party's names right, and played all the music at an appropriate volume so that you could still dance and have fun, but also be able to talk to and hear the person next to you. Bob was very flexible and always available to meet in person, via email, or over the phone. I would most definitely recommend Bob Raina to future bride and grooms and I would absolutely book him again in a heart beat!

I can't say enough good or awesome things about Bob Raina, and it seems as though everyone else is in the same boat:) Your DJ is so much more than your Dance Floor Director. Your DJ is the master of ceremonies-- he/she should be trusted to control the flow of your wedding... Read More reception. We rested easier knowing that Bob was our guy behind the curtain. We found Bob Raina after almost every vendor we had met with recommended him--his professional yet fun nature and his uncanny ability to keep people on the dance floor have earned him a shining reputation in the wedding business. He put us right at ease--no gimmicks, no pressure; and it was ultimately Bob who put my busy mind to rest after walking me through the structure of the reception on our last meeting. He took a genuine interest in our journey, and he was available whenever we needed him--even to make some last minute changes to our intro song:) As for the wedding reception, it was amazing--and largely due to Bob's fantastic work. A reception truly has a busy schedule--Bob made it feel easy, transitioning with grace and great energy from one thing to the next. We never felt a moment of confusion or hesitation. After dinner, and when most of the other 'deeds' were done, the dance floor was open for business--and believe me, Bob can read a crowd like no other. It was the best dance party ever! Thank you so much, Bob, for your time and attention, for your amazing talent, and for making our wedding reception so very memorable!
