Grant Hemond & Associates exceeded our expectations for our destination wedding in Clearwater Beach, FL. Right from the beginning, the staff was very reliable and easy to work with. Our wedding was last week and we had the pleasure of working with James. He was absolutely... Read More amazing! He knew what theme I was going for, and nailed it. Our guests had an amazing time and complimented how awesome the D.J. and uplighting was! I highly recommend Grant Hemond if you are looking for excellent quality, and great value for the price.

When your wedding coordinator and your photographers are super excited to hear that you have gotten Ben Daniele from Grant Hemond as your DJ, you know you are doing something right! Ben called us the week of the wedding to talk about music and introductions and as soon as we got... Read More off the phone, we knew everything was going to be perfect and it was! Ben told us to text or call him if we needed any help with anything or had any questions. He even offered to show us around town since we are out of state! Ben had no trouble getting our guests excited and on the dance floor. He incorporated our song choices and worked the rest of the music around our tastes. In fact, I had guests asking me if I had given him an entire list of songs, in the order to be played; that’s how perfect and tailor made for us it was. Before speaking with Ben, I had been emailing back and forth with Michelle at Grant Hemond and she was so sweet, incredibly helpful, and even answered a couple of non-music/DJ related questions without batting an eye. Grant Hemond, Michelle and Ben, were great and a great value and I absolutely recommend them!

"Best wedding I've ever been to!", "Your DJ was awesome!", "Everything was perfect!", "The food was wonderful, the place is beautiful, the music was great! We had so much fun!"

I highly recommend Grant Hemond and Associates and I highly recommend DJ Eric Harding! Here's how our experience with DJ Eric Harding at Grant Hemond and Associates went: 1) Read great reviews of Grant Hemond and their DJs. I picked three names of DJs that seemed to fit what we needed. 2) Went to the Grant Hemond website and filled out their online form. Got an immediate response from Michelle Norman that same day. She was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was very quick to respond to all of my emails and was very nice and professional. I requested our choices in DJs and Michelle informed me that Eric was available on our wedding date. 3) Eric contacted me within the next couple days and I immediately felt comfortable having him work for us. He is very cordial, well-spoken, knowledgable, and professional. 4) My bride and I knew exactly what we wanted in our music. Eric was more than happy to accommodate our music preferences and made great recommendations as well. 5) On our wedding day, Eric showed up on time and got set up. He played the music for our ceremony flawlessly. He switched over to the ballroom and got the the crowd going with our introductions. The lighting he set up was beautiful. Eric did a great job helping us stay on track with our timeline. He was able to smoothly work in our special requests throughout the evening. He had everyone on the dance floor having a great time! Get DJ Eric Harding at your wedding! The guy is very good at what he does! Sincerely, Eddy and Lindsey

Grant Hemond & Associates Inc was a great DJ company to work with! Our DJ - Anthony Mac - was phenomenal! We are from NYC and got married on the rooftop of the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach, FL.

Everyone raved on the song selection and his ability to mix songs together for a fun night! He did an excellent job keeping the reception dinner/toasts/ special dances/ etc on time with the sunset. He also made sure to ask us permission before any additional toasts were made on the mic. ;) Thank you Anthony Mac for being a part of our special day and making our day full of fun memories!

If I were to choose one thing about my wedding that was worth every penny... it was hiring Cory at Grant Hemond to be my DJ. I wasn't the only one who thought that though. My groom (you know that guy that you marry that shows up to the wedding on the wedding day?) was floored... Read More with how on pace he had my reception. He is a professional host/entertainer, time manager and best friend when you need him. These guys know what they're doing and they'll do whatever it takes to make the bride and groom happy on their wedding day.

So many of my guests had made comments about how great of a DJ I had and it made me so proud to know that I made the right choice. If you're shopping around... stop here. Re-prioritize the budget if you have to because these guys will make your wedding reception the show-stopping event you're looking for!

We signed with Grant Hemmond 12 months before our wedding date. We were told we could not pick a DJ until a few weeks before our wedding, which by that time we were told they were all assigned. I was a little confused and a little upset the ones we were suggested numerous times... Read More by numerous people were already assigned when we were told we had to wait. I think that is a clerical error that needs to be looked into. At any rate, we were assigned Jeff, so all was forgiven in the end. He worked with our insanely busy schedule, kept us informed, emailed, called, and texted us to just check in, and even stayed late for a wedding after party. He made all our songs ready to go and even had a surprise for us at the end of the night. We had a Gasparilla themed wedding and played a lot of Disney music at our reception. When it was time to do the sparkler exit and get people outside, he made an announcement to the guests and played the music to the Main Street Electrical Parade! It was so awesome numerous people came up to me to say how great of a touch it was! Jeff T. is awesome and I couldn’t imagine my wedding day without him.

Wonderful experience! Michelle worked on our contract and setting up a DJ for our wedding. She was extremely responsive, and was very clear on what we would expect. The DJ who was assigned to us was Ward Hemond, who was excellent! He played all of the songs we asked, including... Read More the Superman Love song and The Office theme song during our ceremony. It was excellent. After the ceremony, Ward was excellent moving the pace of our cocktail hour and reception. We had a reception of a little under 50 people -- mostly introverts, and we had people on the dance floor the whole night! He got everyone's name right (we had a lot of complicated ones!), played all of our songs, and made sure all of the traditions we wanted were included. When we consulted with him before the wedding, he had wonderful suggestions for music and logistics. Oh, and his equipment is great. We had three outdoor locations, so he set up a "main hub" at our reception, and networked two amps (one for the ceremony and one for cocktail hour). Incredible experience, don't hesitate to book him.
