Thomas was our DJ and he was perfect. My husband and I are rather introverted, so we were a little worried about the reception being a little awkward since this guy is a complete stranger. He was excellent. Awesome MC and played everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. He...

Bob Bridges was our DJ, and he was amazing. Greatime had great prices, awesome tools that made it easy to submit do not play lists, must play lists, schedules, etc. Day-of, Bob was great.

He really kept the flow of the night going as well, playing more classics earlier on and more up tempo hits as the night went on, really reading the crowd well. We loved him!

I hate to say it, but I was disappointed with Erik for our wedding. As a person, he was super nice, but there were a few issues. 1) He cut off all of the first dances (bride/groom, father/bride, groom/mother). I don't know if he was bored or what, but my husband only danced... Read More with his mom for under half of their song. 2) He played music that we asked him not to, including "Get Low" by Lil Jon, "sweat drop down my balls" is not something we wanted to my Grandma, parents, or any respectable guests to hear. Even after I asked him to turn off this song, he played others like it including Snoop Dogg and other rap. I left the dancefloor a lot because I really didn't like the music 3) He disregarded many of our requests because he was excited to have people on the dance floor. What he didn't notice is that it was only the younger people on the dance floor, something we specifically wanted to avoid. 4) I had a list of firm do not plays and a few got played. I just felt like he didn't listen to us, which was a big bummer. Everything leading up to the event was super easy and Erik and his staff were always very friendly.

My husband and I hired Fred from Greatime DJ for our June 2017 wedding in Colorado. We actually hired Fred based on a friend’s recommendation and were not disappointed. About a month before the wedding, we were asked detailed questions about the reception, expectations for the... Read More DJ, and music selection. We wanted Fred to have a more muted presence but still get guests up and dancing. The music selection was amazing. Numerous guests commented on the quality of the music and we had guests dancing until the very end.

We cannot recommend Fred and Greatime DJ highly enough.

Erik at A Great Time DJ was absolutely incredible. Our experience with Great Time DJ, and specifically, Erik, exceeded even our greatest expectations. When I first connected with Erik about our wedding reception, I said that our number one goal was to have as many people out on... Read More the dance floor as possible at all times. Erik delivered exactly that. He was able to flawlessly cater to our diverse guest list and build a playlist that incorporated a wide range of song requests without things ever feeling disjointed or slow moving. It was seriously perfect. We had at least a dozen different wedding guests tell us that our wedding reception was the funnest wedding party they had ever been to, and their experience was in large part due to Erik's excellent DJ'ing. He delivered the perfect balance of interactivity with the crowd along with stretches of awesome music that appealed to our varied guest ages of 30-60 somethings. Many thanks for helping make our wedding day so memorable!

He was able to figure out what songs were crowd pleasers and just kept surprising the guests in the best way. Our dance floor was packed the whole night. Much like the wedding I attended in 2012.

A Great Time DJ as a whole was great to work with, especially Erik who I believe is the owner, but our specific DJ was terrible and pretty much ruined the dance portion of our reception. Our initially conversation went well and he seemed like a very nice and accommodating person... Read More which he was throughout the entire time but I was deeply disappointed with this DJing skills and his lack of reading a crowd and dance floor. There were also a few glitches during our communication up to the wedding which made me nervous and I should've listened to my instincts. Erik was the primary person who was helping us and managing our song requests but I think somehow it got lost in translation to our DJ. We had asked for our DJ to cut down the time to our first dance song but he didn't do it and we were left dancing for a full 4 minutes for our first dance and it felt like forever!!! We also gave him a list of songs to play and while he did play them, he didn't do a good job segueuing to the next song so the beat would be super fast and then suddenly jump to a slower song. There were times when the crowd was really into a song and he just cut the song off early and went to the next one. People started to get frustrated and stopped dancing and I think this led to an early wedding night for our guests. I was pretty disappointed overall and wish we had chosen a different DJ - but how do you gauge that this is going to happen?

We apologize and take full responsibility for this dj's unimpressive performance. Although he was an incredibly sweet person with experience he just wasn't up to our standards and we've parted ways.
