We picked Brandon from Hey Mr DJ because we had been to so many weddings where he had "performed". Trust me, if you've ever been to a Brandon wedding you'll know what I mean. When we got engaged it was the very FIRST phone call we made. My husband and I were so excited that he... Read More was available for our date. From the very begining, it was a breeze to work with him. Our first meeting he was in depth and asked a bazillion questions. He really got to know us and our wedding style. He had such great ideas, like roasting our wedding party as a surprise for their entrance. To this day, it is still one of my favorite parts of the wedding!!! His suggestions really helped make our night so much fun. I mentioned that my brother was away serving in the marines and would be unable to attend. I was so upset. He then asked me is there were any ideas I had. My husbands friend is a singer and I had gotten him to agree to sing our wedding song first dance. Brandon got his info and told me he would take care of everything. He would get the info, practice with him, etc. I didn't have to do a thing. It was awesome!!!! The day of our wedding came and it went off without a hitch. Brandon emceed the entire event...like a BOSS!!! I could not believe how much he did. He single handedly ran that event. Seriously, without him our wedding would not have been the same. After the toasts, he came up behind us at the head table and said he has a surprise toast. Two seconds later my brothers voice came over the speakers to give a surprise toast. I completely lost it. It was the most special moment. Brandon single handedly tracked down my sister who got a hold of my mom who go him in touch with my brother to get this toast. A total surprise. He didn't have to do that but he knew it would mean the world. I own a salon and do a LOT of weddings. I ALWAYS refer Brandon and Hey Mr.DJ now!!!!!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them!!

Brandon from Hey! Mr. DJ made our wedding everything we wanted it to be! As we've never had a wedding before, we really didn't know what we were getting into or even what all we needed. Brandon took care of everything! All we told him when we met with him was that we wanted it... Read More to be FUN and that's exactly what we got. Every person who I talked to at the wedding commented on what a FUN time they were having. The dance floor didn't empty until the night was over and they turned the lights on. Guests also commented on several of the more original games/ideas that Brandon had suggested and how great they thought they were. For us, the DJ was in our top three list of most important things for the wedding and Hey! Mr. DJ knocked it out of the park! My favorite part of my wedding day!

We used Patrick for our wedding and he definitely exceeded our expectations! From emails, to phone calls and meeting in person, he was very accommodating and easy to work with. He made the reception unique and special to my husband and I. Everyone had a blast!!

My family is still talking about how great Kyle was and how much fun they had at the reception! There was always people on the dance floor- even my husbands grandpa was dancing! Part of the success was the excellent variety in music Kyle played, he worked in some of our... Read More favorites and immediately played any requests our friends and family had. Primarily, I was impressed with how much dedication Kyle showed to making sure everything ran seamlessly. 20 minutes before the ceremony began, we had to make the decision to move the outdoor ceremony to our "plan B" location and Kyle was able to get all of his equipment moved within minutes. He even coordinated music to be played for the guests that were taking shelter from the storm in the reception hall. After the ceremony, he hunted my husband and me down to make sure we had food and drinks which was definitely appreciated! Kyle went above and beyond our expectations and we would definitely recommend hiring him!

We chose Brandon after meeting him randomly while touring our venue. It was such fate. He was great to work with from start to finish!

We met several DJs at Bridal Shows and we just weren't loving our options. Then we met Brandon--- and everything he said just seemed to resonate with us. He was very professional and really emphasized how much more the DJ/MC role is than just playing music. He discussed creative... Read More touches that we'd never even heard of and reiterated that Hey Mr. DJ would help our day flow seamlessly. We worked with Kyle, who was a perfect match for us. We met with him about a month before and he didn't look the least bit concerned that I love Taylor Swift and my husband loves... the exact opposite. We picked a few special songs out, gave him a list of suggestions and free reign otherwise. Our goal was to put in minimal input and leave the rest to the pro! We didn't even pick our ceremony music- we just gave him our rough ceremony outline/timeline and he did the rest. We could not have been happier! Our bridal party walked down the aisle to the prettiest version of "Can't Help Falling in Love" that I've ever heard. My mom (who walked me down the aisle) commented, "That is BEAUTIFUL" when she heard it playing. Our reception music was really great too. He worked in some of my husband's faves during cocktails/dinner and then got the crowd dancing for the rest of the evening. It was a superb blend of bride & groom tastes and a perfect start to our adventure together. Thanks so much, Kyle & Brandon! We loved working with you!

We hired Patrick Ray with Hey Mr. Dj and we could not be more satisfied and overjoyed with the outcome and performance of the company's services. Patrick was the MC at my brother's wedding 8 months ago. As soon as I got engaged, Hey Mr. Dj was the first vendor I called and I... Read More wanted to book them right away! We were blown away with Patrick's enthusiasm and professionalism at my brother's wedding. We met with Patrick a couple months before our wedding and we were so impressed with the organization of questions he had prepared for us. He really got to know us and we told him all about our family members and wedding party. He took detailed notes and was able to speak all about them on our wedding day. Patrick fulfilled every request we asked of him. One of our bridal party members was celebrating his birthday on our wedding day and Patrick got the entire crowd to wish him a happy birthday. That meant a lot to us. As any bride knows, you put so much planning into your wedding day and when the day finally comes, you deserve to enjoy it and not worry if things are happening the way you had hoped. Patrick was AMAZING. He remembered everything we asked of him. (Certain songs and when to play them, funny stories about our bridal party members, our family members' names) My mom and dad both told me that during the wedding, Patrick would go over and check on them periodically to see if they were okay or needed anything. That is HUGE and meant a lot to me! Patrick pretty much ran our reception and made sure everyone was dancing and having a great time! Because Patrick was so involved, it felt like he was a friend/guest at our wedding and not just someone we hired to be there. That is a really cool feeling in my opinion and made my day extra special. I am absolutely thrilled with Patrick and Hey Mr. Dj. I 100% recommend them for your wedding!!

Brandon was everything we wanted out if a dj and more. It's definitely worth the investment. He kept the guests entertained all night as there wasn't any dead time where we weren't doing anything. We have been to over 30 weddings in the past 5 years he is by far the best we have... Read More seen.

My wife and I were incredibly pleased with the performance by Hey! Mr DJ at our wedding. Brandon was very amicable and was able to involve all of our guests in just the way we had hoped. The wedding and reception was flawless in our eyes, and we want to recognize the amount of... Read More hard work and preparation Brandon and his crew put in for our special day. There were several special dedications that he made throughout the night that served as a nice touch; our parents were in tears by the voice-overs he played during the father/bride & mother/groom dance. We also really liked how he brought the reception to a close by playing a sentimental song that everyone could dance and relate to. I would highly recommend Hey Mr DJ and can say that we will use him again for future occasions!

Stop everything right now and hire Brandon Lindsey for your wedding. Let me tell you why — At first, my now-husband and I planned on hiring the cheapest dj we could find. We figured we needed to save somewhere and thought the dj was a good place for that. After going to a... Read More wedding that was several months before ours, we quickly changed our minds. No one was dancing, and I think I heard the dj speak once. Unfortunately, the lack of dj presence actually kind of killed the buzz of a joyous occassion. After that wedding, my mom convinced us to spend the extra money for a phenomenal experience and a great value. Brandon had so many unique and creative ideas to make our reception special. I can't count how many guests came up to me saying things like "whose idea was the _______, it was awesome!!" Brandon worked with us every step of the way to add personal touches and helped us bring our own ideas to light as well. Even when we were running an hour behind schedule, Brandon continued to guide the reception timeline and stayed an hour later than planned. (He charges one amount for an unlimited amount of time which is really great!) Brandon is very quick at communicating and always willing to video chat or meet in person to go over details. His online planning tools for music selection are very helpful as well.

After a couple months of fruitlessly searching for a DJ service that we liked, my husband and I were directed to Hey Mr. DJ by our venue’s event coordinator. Our first meeting with Patrick Ray was all it took to convince us that we were making the right choice. We had a few very... Read More specific ideas in mind that we weren’t sure we’d be able to pull off, but Patrick embraced them right away and helped us to figure out how we could make them happen. From the ceremony music to dinner to the reception, the song selections were absolutely perfect: the dance floor was never empty from the moment we finished serving the cake. He even bought us some extra time to go around thanking guests, which was much appreciated. One of my favorite things, though, was the entertainment during dinner. We had worked it out with Patrick that our guests would play Cards Against Humanity while they were waiting to be called to dinner, with each person writing down their own answer to a question provided on the table. Patrick then went around and read the winners before sending everyone up to get their food. We couldn’t have pulled it off without him, and everyone was talking about how much fun it was instead of complaining about waiting. If you’re looking for a DJ service that will effortlessly keep your guests entertained for hours, I would highly recommend Hey Mr. DJ!
