Charlie was amazing! He did a fantastic job. He was more than accommodating every step of the way. He anticipated what we needed and what the guests wanted to hear. He kept the event flowing smoothly. I could not have hoped for more. I highly recommend Charlie for any event!

Thank you for the great review, Leigh. This was a live guitar wedding ceremony at the Jacksonville Treaty Oak downtown followed by a Dj reception at the RiverFront Café in the Haskell Building, an under-rated venue with a great view of the St. Johns River.

I highly recommend hiring Charlie as your wedding DJ. He maintained the highest level of professionalism from the moment we contacted him, during the months of planning, throughout our wedding ceremony, to the end of our reception. He told me from the start, "your wedding is... Read More your vision and should be done exactly as you wish." He came fully prepared the day of the wedding, did everything exactly as I had requested during our ceremony and reception and even informed me if we were under, or ahead of schedule based on the event timeline we completed online. He definitely kept things running smoothly. The music was very important to me and Charlie understood that from the very beginning. He has an online portal that makes it so easy (and fun!) to select the songs you want to hear, or absolutely don't want to hear. I even picked the order I wanted each song played and was able to tell him precisely when to start and stop a song, if we didn't desire the entire song be played. I loved it! He said all the things I had asked him to say to each of my guests at exactly the right moments and even threw in a few of his own interesting statements (after running it by us first, of course). Charlie is a class act and I would definitely hire him again for any of my future events. He deserves 10 stars! Thank you for making our wedding day extra special for us, Charlie!

better than we could have ever wanted

Reviewed on 4/14/2015 Emily S

Charlie was so experienced and knowledgeable right from the start I never had to stress out or worry about the entertainment part of our celebration. We had him play the acoustic guitar for our ceremony which I was told was really beautiful (I was so nervous I don't remember... Read More much sadly) and he timed everything perfectly during the reception. He knew when to play a slow song and when to play a fast one and there were people on the floor all night! He also had the task of melding country music (50 Texans present) with dance and classic music and did it wonderfully. He even made sure I got some time to dance it out and have fun with my guests. I could not recommend him more highly. Book quickly, he gets booked up about 10 months in advance, I lucked into him being my DJ and boy was it worth it!
