I would not recommend hiring Enchanting Entertainment and Josh Fain. Josh offered a great value deal, but now I wish I had sprung for the pricier DJ. Josh was not responsive to emails, but did confirm receipt of emails when I called him. On our...
wedding day, a different man, Joe, was the DJ, which was a surprise, although Josh was supervising.
Joe mostly did a fine job, running choices by us, but there were a few important mistakes. When we were introduced for our first dance, Joe started playing a different song. He brought a printout of our request over, I pointed out the correct title and he went to find it, in the meantime switching the song over to “All of Me”. Joe found our song eventually, but my husband and I felt super awkward instead of romantic. My father-daughter dance song was played without announcement while people were already on the floor.
When it was time to cut the cake, Joe asked us if we were smashing it in each others faces. We said no way. Despite knowing we did NOT want to smash, Joe riled up our guests! Since the crowd was all excited for smashing, naturally a drunk uncle ran up and shoved cupcakes in our faces.
Joe started out playing great dancing songs, but made several strange choices like playing “Hit the Road, Jack,” which seems like we were trying to encourage our guests to leave! Joe shouldn’t have been out of ideas for songs - we had given Josh a list of several.
Another incident that bothered me was the conga line. When Josh mentioned that he likes to have a conga line to get people out on the dance floor, I said that was not something I would like, plus Josh had to CLEAR the dance floor to begin the line anyway, so that wasn’t the reason for it. We were not happy to be surprised by something we requested not to do.
