Where do I even begin with this wonderful duo? When we were looking for a Dj service for our wedding we knew that this was a perfect match from day 1. We had our first dance choreographed by Sue and were a little worried that the song was going to be to fast. She planned the most amazing dance and our families thought it should be entered into dancing with the stars they were so impressed! Don did an amazing job with our music and helping us plan even right up to the minute I was about to walk down the aisle and we changed music quickly. We also had the photo booth at our wedding and our guests were very impressed with the service of that as well. If you are looking for a caring, kind, compassionate, persistent, hard working vendor, Don and Sue are your duo!
There's a reason Dance Masters are in The Knot Best of Hall of Fame. Don and Sue are the life and soul of the party. I have heard nothing but the best things about the music played and our MC! Don made sure that there was something for everyone when it came to the music and it was clear that he completely understood the sound we were going for by listening and reviewing our selected songs list. And Sue really made sure our guests had the best time. If I could do it all again, I would choose the two of them every time!
Would highly, highly recommend using Dance Masters as your wedding DJ! From the start, both owners were very responsive and personable. They will schedule a time to talk over expectations and costs early on. Communication was thorough and on time. Our DJ Derek was also incredible! He went above and beyond to create a very personal wedding party entrance for us. We had a very large bridal party and wanted to customize songs, which not only was he able to do, but did incredibly well. We received many compliments not only on his execution of the entrance, but of his skills overall. If you are looking for a personable DJ (and company) at an affordable cost, I would highly recommend Dance Masters.
I want to start by saying that Don and Sue are the most kind, fun, AMAZING people we have ever met. Music and food were our most important things when planning and let me tell you..Don and Sue paid attention to EVERY DETAIL and like magic..made our wedding so personalized to us it was unbelievable! We only met with them in person one time but they really make you feel like you have known them for years and somehow (years of experience and thousands of events together most likely haha!) they made our day so tailored to us.. I could cry just thinking about it. Sue bustled my dress (my bustle was broken and she somehow fixed it because she is amazing), Don played every song we could possibly have wanted and kept our guests on the dance floor and entertained for the entire 5 hour reception. I can't even put into words how above and beyond they go..every detail.. they are amazing. Something that seems so small like playing "Someday my prince will come" right before our ceremony started (We are Disney fans and when I heard it I cried when waiting to go down the aisle) or Sue fixing the rose petals lining the aisle because the wind blew them.. small details that are SO IMPORTANT and made our day perfect..they were behind it all and we cannot be more grateful. Everyone at our wedding was complimenting how wonderful and kind they are and we really feel like they were an extension of the love we felt that day and cannot thank them enough for all that they did for us. If you are looking for the best people to DJ and coordinate your day and to truly make it the most amazing and magical day of your life.. BOOK DON AND SUE! You will not be disappointed and will remember them and their kindness for the rest of your lives!!! <3
Cannot express how great Dance Masters is!!! Don and Sue are absolutely amazing and made sure our day was everything we wanted. From the very first time we met them it was apparent how much they love what they do and care so much about the couple they're working with. They went above and beyond in getting the party going-- even bringing props for the kids which they loved! The flow of the music was perfect, and Don and Sue read the crowd flawlessly and kept everyone dancing! We couldn't have had a better time.
We honestly could not have been happier with DJ Derek, who kept our wedding guests dancing all night long! From the in-depth meeting a few weeks before our wedding, DJ Derek was 100% on point in helping us plan our music for our day. He was very helpful in pulling unique songs that I was looking for, as well as providing great song suggestions! He was also able to help us mic-up our officiant during our ceremony, since it was outside and we wanted to make sure everyone would hear the ceremony. During the night DJ Derek would stop by to make sure we were having a good time, as well as ask if there were any other songs we wanted him to play. He was very accommodating and even let me take the mic to sing for one of our last songs. I was told after the wedding that he even fluffed my dress for me before I made my way down the aisle - how thoughtful!! Couldn't be happier - thank you!!
Don and Sue are the best. They are more than the DJ and Emcee. They give so much attention to everyone at the wedding. Sue was more helpful than the people at our venue "WOW". I've been to many weddings and have and have not seen DJ's taking so much interest in everyone. They will make your Wedding Day a day you will never forget. They are very easy to work with and make you feel very comfortable when you meet with them, like you've known them forever.
I cannot thank Don & Sue enough! Sue's charisma and attentiveness were highly appreciated and Don's DJ skills are top notch! Sue was prepared for anything, including a button on a dress falling off, there she was with safety pins for me! I had my guests coming up to me saying that the MC was exceptional and the DJ really read the energy of the room well. ATTENTION ALL BRIDES: The best part of the night was when I gave up all control (including my highly detailed song list) and asked Don to just do his thing and get those people dancing! You can place your trust, your event, and happiness in their capable hands. Don and Sue spent time on the phone speaking with me weeks before the event to make sure they knew what I wanted, and the night of it was clear that they not only remembered my every request but that they really had gotten to know me as an individual and knew what I wanted and the type of night I wanted to have. They made our reception very special and we could not have done it without them. Sue had gifts for my young flower girls, an energy drink for me when I got tired, and was even bringing me my favorite cocktails throughout the night! I highly recommend Dance Masters Entertainment and Don & Sue for any event! They far exceeded my expectations and made me such a happy bride. Absolutely an amazing duo! Thank you Don & Sue!!!!!!!!!
Sue and Don are an excellent team! They were fabulous to coordinate with and made sure to accommodate some very special requests we had. I loved their online planning form – it really helped with our ability to plan and be on the same page with the schedule! Their prices were reasonable. Everyone had a wonderful time and said they enjoyed the flow of the evening and mix of older and newer music.
These guys are amazing!!!! I can not begin to describe how thankful I am for all they did for our wedding! As a gay couple we never know how people are going to react or treat us and from day one they made us feel excepted and like anyone else who is getting married. They made the process easy and fun, even when I was a total wreck with nerves. Don was a great DJ and helped get everyone on the dance floor!! Sue was an amazing MC, took care of anything that came her way and dealt well with my small panic attacks lol. They made our day perfect!! I will be telling anyone getting married to use them. Their prices were great and their online system made it so easy to organize. Thank you Don and Sue from the bottom of our hearts!! Buddy and Johnny Stonesifer 09/14/2017
We hired DJ Derek to provide music during the ceremony, reception and cocktail hour. Communication wasn't very good leading up to the wedding, we mainly emailed (we live too far away for face-to-face) and we worried that he didn't understand what we wanted for our wedding. But the day of the wedding he did a great job! Super friendly, played exactly the kind of music we liked, and worked with the venue and photographer to provide the perfect MC and music for every moment!
DJ Derek was our DJ/Emcee for our wedding on August 5, 2017 and he did a wonderful job! He went above and beyond our expectations. He made sure we stuck to our timeline that we gave him. He even got out on the dance floor with his mic and told us the dance steps to the Wobble and the Cupid Shuffle in case you weren't sure of the moves. I got "best wedding ever!!!" from every guest that attended so far! You will be happy you hired Dance Masters Entertainment and it will be one area of your wedding planning that you will not have to worry about. They will definitely take care of you! Thank you so much!!!! Kyle & Shannon Watson
Sue and Don made my reception the reception of my dreams. Don played music that constantly kept people on the dance floor, and Sue made sure that the reception flowed smoothly. Sue made sure that I got all of the pictures I wanted, that my hair and makeup always looked good, that everyone signed our guest book, and that everyone knew how to dance to popular line dances played at the wedding. I don't want to imagine how stressful the reception would have been without Sue! We also got a photo booth for our wedding from Sue and Don, and all of our guests loved it! It's so nice to have an album with everyone's photo booth pictures and notes as well. I would recommend Dance Masters Entertainment to anyone in a heartbeat!
Had a great time at a wedding with DJ Tim.
Sue and don absolutely made our wedding the most amazing experience. We wanted a party nonstop and that's what they gave us. They not only took care of the music and lighting but they brought the party. They are an amazing team that balances doing music and MCing. Sue also took care of any thing we needed. She got us drinks and fixed my dress for me. They are the nicest couple and I'm so glad we had them. Everyone should go with them because of how incredibly awesome they are!
Don and Sue were our dj/emcee for our wedding on may 6, 2017. I could sit and write so many amazing things! They went above and beyond their duties! Our guests raved about the music selections by don, and he kept them on the dance floor all night! Not to mention the amazing lighting! Sue was so wonderful! She helped with keeping everyone organized and even helped bustle my gown and brought us drinks all night! She was energetic and welcoming! Don't hesitate to contact them and hire them for your event!!! Heather & Lee
We can not say enough great things about Don and Sue! Just meeting them right before the reception I felt so comfortable with them! They did a fantastic job and went above and beyond! Everything was absolutely fantastic!! I would highly highly highly recommended dance entertainment! Also their photo booth is so cool and fun for all ages! Thanks again for making our wedding a fantastic event!!!
We recently had wedding in Taneytown MD on 04/08/2017. Sue was our MC and Don was our DJ. I can't emphasize enough how much we appreciated their service. They went extra miles to help us out on our crazy day!! We also had photobooth and our guests loved it!! With party items they brought along with them, we had really really great times. We had few of our friends who are getting married in future asking for their contact information. Thank you Sue and Don!!
Sue and Don are amazing... I could go on forever. We sprung for the MC package with Sue. She helped me lace my corset dress and kept time for the entire event. She was awesome on the microphone and kept the dance floor filled. They show up early and are very professional. She kept checking with me all night to see how I was doing and offered to constantly get me and my husband drinks or whatever else we needed. She really made me feel like I was her number 1 priority. Don knew how to keep the floor pumping too. He is so full of energy...he's exhausts me! They are both full of energy. Love love love Sue and Don and will definately recommend to everyone we know. :)
We had DJ Tim he was Absolutely AMAZING. Everyone loved him and he is a good dancer. We got the light package which was super affordable. He set everything up, even know where to move his stuff when it started raining. I will be useing them for every event that I have. Thanks
My husband, Dan and I had Sue and Don from Dance Masters Entertainment host our wedding reception and they made our night! Don and Sue were very easy to work with. They were able to guide us through suggestions for the reception, organized the evening’s events, and even allowed me to use some of their sound equipment to perform a musical piece of my own with a friend on Irish drum and guitar. Additionally they are very friendly to same-sex marriages, and treated our special day with attention, enthusiasm, and boundless support! I have been to many weddings where the DJ stays behind his or her station and runs the show from there, which is pretty typical and expected: Sue came out and worked the crowd. She chatted, she joked, she coordinated, and she made people laugh. Knowing that our three young nephews would be there, she brought along foam ‘lightsabers’ for them to run around with (which they did with gusto). She acted far more like a hostess who wanted to see everyone have a good time, than a DJ. Don worked behind the station, while Sue worked the floor, but he still had his work cut out for him. For our entrance, we needed him to loop and edit a track of music from a video game, and time it specifically to us. This he did masterfully, as well as deal with a rather eclectic selection of music that we wanted. I can’t say that we made it easy for him in that regard, and Don responded like a champ. A wedding has so many moving parts. Unlike so many others that I have seen at other weddings, Sue and Don aren’t just another part: they have the gift of coordinating the other parts of the reception to make it all run smoothly as a whole. Because of their efforts, Dan and I were able to enjoy our party instead of feeling like we had to run it. I would recommend Dance Masters to anyone who wants a reasonably priced, yet highly professional entertainment service. I know that should we host another event requiring and entertainment service, we will surely come to Sue and Don again without hesitation.
Wow! We can't say enough of how easy Don and Sue made our music/DJ process and how much fun DJ Mike made our wedding! Thank you Dance Masters for alleviating so much stress for us and making our night fun and unforgettable! ♡
Let me start by saying that I've never written a review about anything, ever but I feel so strongly about this that I'm actually doing it this one time. Stop looking around! This is it! We hired Tim Hamel as our DJ for our wedding on New Year's Eve, he was fantastic! He contacted us prior to the wedding to see our likes/dislikes and what was most important to us. I didn't even have a song picked out for our dance with the mothers and he helped me pick one out. We really didn't give him much direction other than make sure no one stays in their seats and they didn't. He reads the room, plays awesome music and even joins in on the fun! He really knows what he's doing! Sue and Don (owners) are also the nicest people ever! We met at their house for a quick consultation and left feeling like family. We owe all of you the biggest thank you! I will recommend Dance Masters to everyone and especially DJ Tim!
Searching for vendors can be so overwhelming, but after doing a little research, I knew we had to have Dance Masters as part of our wedding! We first met with Don who went above and beyond answering all of my tedious questions and walking us through the entire process. We met with Don and Sue about a month out from our wedding. They went over the timeline including the introductions with us which was not an easy task! Don and Sue know how to make you feel at ease with everything! The music was definitely something that we did not stress about! My dad had wanted to do a mash up of songs for the father/daughter dance, and Don had no problem putting them together for us and making sure that our DJ received the track. We also received it ahead of time so that we could practice. We were paired with DJ Chris, and we can't speak anything but highly of him! We didn't meet Chris until we arrived at our reception, but he kept us calm and on track the entire night! The week before the wedding, we talked with Chris on the phone for over an hour going through all the details of the wedding reception. I knew then that Chris was a great fit for us! We were having a cocktail hour on the first floor and the reception was on the second floor. He had no issues with the transitions. Once the dance floor opened up after dinner, it stayed full the entire night! Chris knew exactly what to play to keep everyone out there, and we really didn't give him much to go off of besides genres that we liked, but he totally got our personalities. I am the type of person who doesn't love to be the center of attention, but Chris made sure to check in before the special dances to add suggestions like speeding up the song just slightly and making sure I felt comfortable. During the reception, there was a mishap where I believe a power cord got unplugged, but Chris had the music back up so quick - so it didn't bother anyone! Our experience with Dance Masters and Chris was beyond amazing! You hear all of these horror stories some brides have about their vendors, but you won't find that with Dance Masters. They were professional, caring, and so good at what they do! People are still commenting on how great DJ Chris was, and we can't thank him enough for being such a big part of our wedding day!
Don and Sue are the two for you! Our wedding coordinator introduced us to Don and Sue and we specifically requested them to DJ our wedding -- this trio works together seamlessly and talk about a total care package on your wedding day! You'll never be short of having someone to fix your bustle, hand you your bouquet, get you a refreshment, and genuinely check in on how you're doing emotionally and physically. When we met with Sue and Don we didn't just decide to hire DJs...we decided to hire them to help us build an entertainment package for our reception. We worked with them to build our music list using their fun, easy, and beyond comprehensive music planner online. While we picked our own music, Don was great at live mixing and moving to the beat with pure enjoyment and style, and he catered to a wide range of interests and ages through music. All throughout the reception and after the wedding people commented to Don and Sue and us that the music was amazing. We also had a monogram light feature and lights to accompany our music. This was a total package of ambiance that made for a fantastic celebration. Of course this could not be accomplished without his stellar wife and Master of Ceremonies -- Sue! This woman is compassionate, fearless, and extremely FUN! She is great at gauging the guests interests and mood, getting people to engage with her and others, and she just naturally fills the room with a warm spirit and energy. She kept everyone pumped all evening long. While building our reception play list, we worked with Sue to choreograph our first dance as husband and wife. Together with Don, they put together a mash-up of two songs ("I Won't Give Up" by Peter Hollens and "Love Never Felt So Good" by Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake). Sue brought the music alive with the moves she put together, helping us to convey meaning through motion, while adding fun and tasteful flare, that we thoroughly enjoyed sharing with our family and friends! Neither of us had much dance experience before, and truly, in 3 lessons (with a little homework on the side) we had it down solid. This is now something we not only have to cherish as a memory we can look back on and watch, but we can actually repeat the dance whenever we want! She helped give us something that is truly unique and ours. Sound like a lot? It is! Let us tell you though, Dance Masters Entertainment is affordable, flexible, communicates extremely well and thoroughly, is amazingly skilled, and helps you leave the stress at the door and keep your dancing shoes on all night! We highly recommend you choose Dance Masters Entertainment and take advantage of the continuity provided in packaging everything together that makes for an unforgettable wedding reception. Sue and Don: We are so blessed to have worked very closely with you and know you more personally. You both are a treasure!
