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!"

DJ Eric Harding was very easy to work with and we couldn't be more pleased with the work that he did at our wedding. 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

For a bilingual DJ (Spanish and English) Michael was great. He was also great at improvising when the plans changed throughout the night. He listened to what we wanted and played a great set along with our top choice songs.

When we began wedding planning, Grant Hemond was the ONLY DJ recommended to us in the area and once we spoke with them and heard about their services and reasonable prices, we instantly hired them. After that, we learned we had already gone to a wedding where Ben from Grant... Read More Hemond was the DJ and we had a blast at that wedding. I called them up and requested Ben for our wedding immediately. Ben was awesome! The week of our wedding, we worked with him to send him song choices and preferences. He was all set up at the venue early when we arrived and heard nothing but positive reviews from our guests, and how much fun they had at our wedding. He played the perfect mix of music that we requested, kept everything moving seamlessly throughout the evening, and interacted with our guests so well. We recommended him without hesitation! Thanks, Ben and Grant Hemond!!

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.

GHA was amazing! We had Jeff as our DJ and he accomodated all of our requests and even prevented a potentially painful karaoke rendition.

I would highly recommend GHA for your wedding or upcoming event

I honestly could not have asked for a better DJ. We had Jeff and he went above and beyond all expectations. He accommodated all of our pre-planned song requests and spent an hour on the phone with us ahead of time going over the time line as well as giving us ideas for songs to... Read More play during events such as the cake cutting and bridal party introductions. He ended up executing the time line perfectly without any hiccups and did it with effortless professionalism. Hiring him really played a major role in making my wedding a success and fun for everyone. He played the right songs at the right time and it was clear he cared about the success of our reception. He played all the songs my husband and I asked him ahead of time to play and made the wedding so much fun. My friends and family from ages 9 to over 80 were dancing for hours. I would recommend him and this company to any bride. Save yourself some time looking for a DJ -- The search should seriously stop here, and this is coming from someone who is fairly high maintenance!

THE BEST!!! Grant Hemond and Associates are the most fun, professional DJ's around. With 12+ years experience as an event planner, I have worked with many vendors and GH DJ's ALWAYS exceed expectations. Cory was our wedding DJ at Powel Crosley Estate in Sarasota, FL and he was... Read More our perfect match... he is AMAZING! Cory met with us prior to the wedding to review all of the wedding details and to make sure that the music, itinerary and uplighting were PERFECT! The various genres of music that he played at our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing locations (all on-site at Powel Crosley) created the perfect ambiance for each part of our special day. Cory is very professional and caring--you will see that he goes above and beyond to make sure that the bride/groom feel pampered and relaxed and he ensures that guests have a fun, memorable day. Beyond the excellent customer service, their DJ equipment/microphone/uplighting and other options are top notch—all microphone and music were smooth, clear and perfect volume. Thank you, GH and CORY, for all of the special touches and thought you put in to our wedding day. It was the best day of our lives and you will always have a special place in our hearts!

Our DJ (Doug Decker) was great to work with and we had a lot of fun at the reception!
