As music lovers, we spent hours painstakingly researching DJs at different price points and setting up calls with multiple DJs to feel out the best match for us. What qualities should we look for? How much should we spend? How do we make a dec...
ision? In short, we are so happy our search led us to Herbert Holler. We had high expectations, from his reputation, and he still exceeded them! You should hire DJ Herbert Holler for his focus on quality, professionalism, positive vibes, and client-first mentality. He was an invaluable addition to our wedding “A-Team” and we’ll take this review to explain why Herbert Holler is a top-shelf choice to enhance your wedding day!
First, we wanted to plan our wedding on relatively short notice, and it was important to feel that our DJ would make the process easy and fun. Herbert is both super professional and also enjoyable to work with. The process wasn’t transactional, but rather, it felt like a collaboration. Your wedding planning process is stressful enough- you should have fun with this. Herbert communicates well. He really takes the time to understand your vision, your tastes, and your family and guests - and will make sure he pronounces every name correctly. He’ll give you honest feedback during the planning on how each choice could impact the vibe. Whether you are a music nerd (like us) or you’re someone who could care less - Herbert will tailor the music experience to you and your wedding, and he will make sure your ceremony and reception go off without a hitch or an awkward glance.
Second, we wanted a DJ who would focus on the music without stealing the show. Any time he interacted with our guests, he brought his personality and humor without showboating or stealing the show. We really enjoyed his presence and his good vibes. ‘Nuff said!
Third - musically, Herbert is at the top of his game. He loves his craft, and it shows! He does a great job reading the room’s energy to make the best music choices to enhance the moment. He knows when to turn up and when to chill out, without any cheesy showboating. We happened to give Herbert a ton of music feedback for our Jewish x Haitian wedding, and he absolutely nailed it. We went on a musical journey from the Horah to hip hop to reggae to Haitian zouk to wedding classics to karaoke. Name your style, and he’ll do his research and deliver. The best outcome is when people gravitate to the dance floor without thinking “Huh? That was a weird transition.” On the contrary, Herbert’s set was smooth, flowed organically, and his transitions between songs were technically on point 100% of the time.
In conclusion, please put your wedding in Herbert’s capable hands! He really took the time to understand what we were going for, and he exceeded our expectations 1000%. Our guests (who are biased) loved what DJ Herbert Holler brought to our wedding day. On a side note, we did our research and other competing DJs even recommended him too :) … thank you DJ Herbert Holler for an unforgettable experience!
