My sister got married a few weeks ago and I am still hearing about how amazing the reception was. Many have said the best they have ever been to! One of the biggest factors in making that night amazing was DJ Ryan Rousseau! It seemed like he effortlessly read the crowd to keep... Read More people dancing all night long...literally to the VERY end of the night. There was a song for every age and taste in music, but it was the personal touch in how he put it all together that had the 'kids' swinging to oldies and the grandparents busting a move to hip hop. Not to mention the time he must have taken getting to know the bride, groom, and families. His MC skills sounded like he was talking about old friends. As part of the bridal party I only got to witness the final results, and not the amount of work he must have put in to make this once in a lifetime event come together so seamlessly and so perfectly suited to the crowd. It is rare to find a professional who truly enjoys something they must have done many, many times before. Thank you Ryan for making my sister's day so much fun!!

As many brides know, picking the right vendor can be difficult and stressful. Whether it be your photographer, florist, or your DJ, you want to pick a person that not only caters to you and your husband, but also to everyone attending the wedding. Ryan went beyond that. Within... Read More thirty seconds of our initial phone call, I knew without a doubt that he would exceed my greatest expectations. From the flawless sound during the ceremony to keeping the dance floor absolutely packed up until the last song, Ryan made sure our night was the best one yet. You can read amazing review after amazing review for him, but to experience it in person is something else. I promise, other than saying 'I do' to the love of your life, this will be the best decision you make for your wedding.

Ryan did such an amazing job at mine & my wife's wedding. He not only delivered exactly what we requested but he made it special for us considering we had MTV cameras following us the whole night.

I would recommend Ryan a Rousseau to absolutely anyone, without hesitation. The minute we started working with Ryan, it seemed like every piece of the wedding just started falling into place. From our initial phone conversation you could really tell how much he cared about... Read More making our day the best it could be, which made this process so much easier than we anticipated, and it actually made it fun. He was not only concerned about his services, but he asked questions about everything else to make sure it all flowed perfectly together. The day of the wedding, Ryan helped us with so many other things that don't fall into a "DJs roles and responsibilities" such as helping me bustle my dress, switch my shoes, making sure we had drinks and water in between pictures and our grand entrance and he even zip tied my dress when my bustle broke! To our surprise, he also recorded all of the toasts on a USB for us to keep!! We are still getting messages from people about how much fun they had, how bad their feet hurt from dancing the night away and how it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding.... all ages filled the dance floor from start to finish! Before the wedding, Ryan helped my maid of honor coordinate her speech using a modified version of a song so she would sing her own lyrics! Ryan also did our uplighting which looked STUNNING. We wanted something natural looking but elegant and he nailed it. We are so grateful everything that Ryan did for us! My husband and I are still talking about how impressed and happy we are with the service he provided from start to finish. We switched up a few things very last minute and Ryan handled it like a champ and everything was flawless. If you’re looking for a DJ to handle the entertainment at any event, do yourself a favor, hire Ryan, you won’t regret it!!!

I contacted Ryan Rousseau regarding DJing our wedding at Castle Farms, however he was over our budget, therefore he recommended DJ Scott for us, and I am so glad he did! I talked to almost 10 DJs and Scott was the one that finally fit the bill. He is professional, easy to talk... Read More to, SO helpful, and has a great personality. He had several phone calls with me leading up to the wedding to make sure we were on the same page, and on the day of the wedding, he came early to set up, and did a great job playing our ceremony music exactly as instructed, and at the reception, he was a great MC and directed our evening events flawlessly. He was great at reading the crowd on what kind of music they were into, and kept the dance floor full all night long! I had so much fun at our reception, and it’s all thanks to Scott! You SHOULD book DJ Scott for your wedding, he is awesome!!

From the moment we got engaged, I knew I wanted Ryan for our wedding. He was one of the first vendors I contacted in the beginning of the planning process and we couldn't be happier with our decision! Ryan is charming, professional, and makes sure every detail is taken care of.... Read More He worked so well with my wedding coordinator and always checked up on me to see how I was doing throughout the day. The music selection he played was perfect and was so accomidating when we ran into some last minute changes about our ceremony.

DJ Ryan Rousseau made our wedding a night to remember! From start to finish, Ryan was professional, easy to work with, and extremely helpful during the entire planning process. He provided anything and everything the bride, groom, or guests wanted to hear and played music for... Read More all ages! Ryan provided extra touches through lighting that completely enhanced our reception venue and paid attention to every little detail. He took pictures and videos throughout the night, including my grandma busting a move on the dance floor, that I will now have forever.

"I've attended a lot of weddings and I don't think I have ever seen one where the dance floor was as flooded with people and full the whole time." That's what one of my guests told me the day after our wedding. I selected Ryan after reading all of his previous positive reviews,... Read More and my husband and I could NOT have been happier with our choice. Folks, this is not Ryan's first rodeo. He knows what is doing. And he's not the cheesy, Casey Kasem type of DJ. He LISTENS to your needs, your vision, your suggestions, and weighs in with his expertise when need be. For our first dance we wanted to do a mash up of a couple of songs, and he created the mashup for us! After the wedding, my husband and I kept remarking on all the things we FORGOT to do, or just didn't have time to do...the reason: we were on the dance floor, with practically all of our 150 guests, THE WHOLE NIGHT. Ryan has a sense of humor, so when my Maid of Honor had a funny interlude in her speech, he chimed in with some music to add to the moment. He's also on time, prepared, brings ALL of his own equipment and lighting, and never once needed our assistance to get things done. I literally spoke to him maybe three times from the time I booked him to the day of the wedding: the consultation, the wedding walkthrough/decisions call, and one more follow up. That was all it took and he NAILED it. If you are looking to basically have an iPod DJ where you dictate all of the song selections, don't go with Ryan because you would be wasting his potential. We gave him a list of 10 songs we definitely wanted to hear, and he filled in the rest with his ideas and guest requests. Everything was perfect, the music was bumping, and every single one of our guests were energized and on the dance floor; even my grandma who was in a wheelchair! We got so many texts the next morning about how "epic" of a wedding ours was, and in large part we owe it to DJ Ryan for his efforts to get the party started, and keep it going. Thank you Ryan! -Meghan and Nate

From start to finish, Scott Arnett (who works for/with Ryan Rousseau) was an absolutely fantastic vendor to work with. We originally booked our event with Ryan and worked with him through the contract business, but then Scott in all the planning. Months before the wedding, he... Read More requested we fill out an informational sheet about the wedding party, music preference, the event's run-of-show, among other meticulous details. He walked through everything line-by-line not to miss a detail, and promised us he'd "read the room" for what the guests were feeling. And looking back at the evening: not a song went by that didn't pack the dance floor. He made sure to get all the hits our parents' age group wanted to hear, but as not to make our friends bored or want to take a break. We got our pictures back yesterday and it's clear: everyone was dancing and had a great time! Just as important: he was so friendly and engaging, and never made us feel like we were asking too many questions or being needy. Wish there was a way to give more stars! Thanks Scott and Ryan!

He used clear zip ties which held it up and prevented me from tripping, or ripping my wedding dress! Never in a million years would I have expected my DJ to have helped us out so much on our wedding day.

Ryan was great, I would recommend him in a heart beat. Dance floor was full the entire night (which is the goal!) so we were very happy.

Ryan made me feel so comfortable and really got to know who I was and what we were looking for before we actually booked him. A few days before the wedding, Ryan called me and we went over any last minute details and he constantly reassured me that everything was going to be perfect. Because I hadn't had a song picked out for our introduction, I asked Ryan to pick something he thought would be fun and upbeat. Not only did he pick a song, he actually created a song for us, which goes to show how much of an amazing person and entertainer he is. The dance floor was packed all night even with an age range from 21-85 and we received so many compliments about how awesome DJ Ryan was.

Beyond that, he was very attentive to everything we wanted and needed and was able to anticipate things better than any wedding vendor I've met. Leading up to the wedding, he was one of the only vendors that called me beforehand and made me feel 100% comfortable. Ryan talked us through what was going to happen and why it was going to occur, and it took all the anxiety out of the night!
