Butch is amazing!! From the first time we facetimed him about our music desires for the wedding, he has been nothing but helpful. Due to Covid-19 we had to change our wedding date twice and he was nothing but attentive to the situation. He didn...
't ask questions, he simply responded promptly to me and said we will make this work. He didn't ask for more money, or to pay my balance in full. He switched everything over without hesitation.
My fiancé and I can't wait until next year to have him DJ our event. We are BIG music people and know he is going to kill the music game. If you are looking for a DJ, he is your man!

Butch was an amazing DJ and made our wedding completely unforgettable. He made sure to stick with not only what I wanted, but also made sure that nobody gave speeches that I didn’t want to give speeches. He made sure the night was all about us,...
and our guests raved for weeks about how much fun they had because of him. Our guests were dancing the entire night, all the way up until we had to kick them out. I truly would recommend him to everyone.

We attended to a wedding that Butch DJed and immediately knew we had to have him do our own wedding! Not only was the music great but he did an excellent job of keeping things on schedule. This is such an important, but overlooked element of a...
wedding. Without an experienced and well organized DJ, the entire flow of the wedding can be ruined.
Prior to the wedding, Butch took the time to speak with us about our music styles, wedding format and what our ideal wedding day looked like. He lets you add songs of your choosing to an online portal so that you can ensure certain songs are definitely played/definitely NOT played.
Our wedding was absolutely amazing and I cannot tell you how many people came up to us after complimenting our DJ choice. I’ve never seen a dance floor so packed.
One of the best things about Butch is that he mixes up the playlist to appeal to all age groups. Our grandparents spent as much time on the dance floor as our 25 year old friends did!
All I can say is look no further. DJ Butch Gray is the best around - he will ensure both you and your guests enjoy the wedding.

Butch came highly recommended by family, and after our first planning session we knew he would be an excellent fit. We worked with him on our order of events, and picking the perfect soundtrack to key moments was a breeze. He also had a simple ...

During our big day, Butch was the epitome of a friendly, energetic, and conscientious MC. He kept things moving at just the right pace.
The sound quality was top notch and glitch-free during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. For the ceremony and cocktail hour Butch worked with the musician we hired to ensure the sound was perfect.
One last thing - we highly recommend having Butch record your ceremony and toasts. Your wedding day will be a blur and you will want those memories to keep forever!

d so many people dancing and was so fun, that we elected to SKIP the cake cutting because we didn't want to take away from the party. We also had an early bus returning to the hotel, but no one took it. They were having too much fun. Butch arrived well before our event and was ready to go when guests arrived. He played exactly the types of music we were looking for at all points in the evening- cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. He also adjusted the volume of the music to ensure a great atmosphere for all guests. Butch didn't skip a single song we requested, and we requested tons of songs. He also recorded all the speeches (something we forgot to do on our own) and shared some great videos he took from behind the DJ booth. It is impossible to overstate the value of Butch. He was a game changer. He was attentive throughout the entire planning process and responded promptly to our calls and questions (something that was lacking in other wedding vendors) He's polite, professional and attentive to details. You only get one shot at a wedding. If you want a phenomenal DJ and dance floor, choose Butch. You won't regret it.

here couples can plan the itinerary for the reception and create their must play and do not play list. It was great to be able to login to Butch's site and plan all the music and speeches for our wedding. Butch was also great about doing video calls with us during the planning process as we live out of state. He was very helpful and responsive during planning. At the reception Butch was fantastic. The dance floor was PACKED the entire night. He respected our music preferences and did a great job using them to get everyone on the dance floor and keep the party going all night. He has a great announcing voice and all of his announcements were very professional and never an annoying interruption. He kept the music at a great volume for cocktail hour and dinner so that our guests could have conversations and during the dancing he turned it up but not too loud so people could still hear each other. He also did a great lighting package for us that took the reception space to the next level. Overall I would highly recommend hiring DJ Butch for your wedding!

nxious about finding a DJ who would fit with the elegant theme of our wedding, while also creating a fun and energetic environment. DJ Butch is the perfect combination of everything we were looking for. Leading up to the wedding, he was very easy to communicate with, and his system for selecting music ahead of time was straightforward. We happened to have quite a few songs on our “must play list,” but DJ Butch did a perfect job of recommending additional songs that went along well with our style, and, most importantly, read our crowd flawlessly on the day of the wedding. Our dance floor was full with happy guests from the moment dinner was over, and we have already had several friends ask for his information for their own weddings (who aren’t even yet engaged!). Additionally, he was very receptive and responsive to us all during the wedding, both to my husband and I in terms of volume or timing, and to guests in playing their song requests or answering questions. DJ Butch was also a wonderfully friendly and considerate vendor and advocate for us as bride and groom – he made us feel comfortable and excited for our wedding, and he also worked very well with our other wedding vendors. We had a string quartet for our ceremony, and DJ Butch was happy to help by providing sound equipment for the ceremony space, and the transition from live instruments to his music was smooth. We are so very pleased with DJ Butch, and personally recommend him without any hesitation!

Butch was attentive to our needs leading up to our reception, and even offered to help us with items not related to his role, without being over bearing. He could have easily been the life of the party, but knew how to truly influence the environment of the party by his song selection. His interactive software platform also made it very easy for us to compose our Do Not Play and Must Play lists.
Another great thing about Butch in comparison to other DJ's that we really appreciated was his approach with regard to the total package; where other vendors tacked on extra charges for things like up-lighting, Butch just offered to include it at no additional cost.
He took direction spectacularly. We didn't want an interactive DJ and he did a great job. People are still commenting on how great a job he did and we love the fact that we couldn't agree more.

My mom was happy because the music wasn't "so loud you can't hear yourself think," and I was happy because he made sure we kept to the schedule. People seriously danced the entire night. I've never seen so many people on the dance floor! He even recorded all of the wedding speeches and toasts, which was great considering we didn't have videographer.
The final thing I have to say about Butch is he's just a really nice guy. He's the type of person you'd invite to your wedding if you hadn't already hired him ;)

As soon as we got engaged, my fiance and I knew we would hire Butch as our DJ for our reception. We have gotten to know Butch over the last 6 years when he has been the DJ for a non-profit Christmas party we attend each year.
st talent is his ability to read a crowd and provide them with the song they need to keep the party going (or take it down a notch with a slow song). Our dance floor was packed for the entire reception thanks to Butch!
Leading up to our wedding, we were able to use Butch's online database to select songs for introductions and special dances, submit special instructions, and provide a timeline for the reception.
Butch also went above and beyond to download special music that we wanted played. He also worked with me the week before our wedding to mix two songs together for my father-daughter dance.
If you want a DJ with a friendly personality and individualized service for an affordable price, Butch is your guy!

He also deftly handled a flare-up with my wife's cousins during the reception, and didn't let it escalate. The one thing we found disappointing was that things could have been troubleshot better: Butch offered to provide mics and amplification for our outdoor ceremony, but when we walked down the aisle and arrived in front of our officiant, we were surprised to find there were no mics or amplification at all. We don't know why, since we had discussed this, and the location of the nearest outlet at the adjacent reception venue, and he had said he would bring sufficient extension cords. He had given us a great deal to work within our budget, so we didn't feel we could complain too much.
