My wife and I reviewed a number of different DJs prior to finding out& deciding to use Nate Clancy, and Nate turned out to be phenomenal addition to our wedding. Nate made us feel comfortable, was extremely helpful with the pre-wedding planning, and helped us navigate a ton of different music genres the keep the party going all night. Nate transitioned seamlessly from the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and then into the reception. Since our wedding, we have gotten a ton of compliments on how talented Nate was with mixing and transitioning music during the reception. Elizabeth and I would highly recommend Nates services to anyone looking for a talented, down to earth DJ for their special day!
Nate Clancy is the best DJ out there! When I found my venue, the owners said they only recommend one DJ, and lo and behold it was DJ Nate and NOW I KNOW WHY HE'S THE ONLY ONE THEY RECOMMEND! He was accommodating, patient, and professional. His playlist was dope, his MC skills were top notch, and his attitude is out of this world amazing. The lights, the music, everything he did secured the big bad dance party I wanted for my wedding! Nate was patient w/ my lack of communication halfway thru wedding planning and was still able to put together the best playlist and reception experience one month out. He also let me get behind the DJ booth and hit the 1's and 2's, so yeah, DJ Nate is the best. :) He'll make your wedding day fun and lively. You won't regret hiring him!
My wife and I had a very quick engagement, which didn't leave a lot of planning time. I talked to DJ Nate on the phone and immediately knew that is who I wanted to book. He immediately put my mind at ease and was great to work with. I gave him a few songs that we wanted played and let him go from there. I didn't have a wedding planner, but Nate took control at the reception and ensured that everything went off without a hitch. DJ Nate and DJ Craig Jones (his right hand man) were exceptional and I highly recommend them! He is also a Veteran, which is an added bonus in my book.
My wife and myself were very impressed with our overall experience with DJ Nate. From his prompt response to any questions, to his friendly attitude. He was very professional, and a true pleasure to work with. He was able to get the whole crowd dancing, and numerous guests commented it was the best wedding they have ever experienced. His up-lighting was great and he kept the music bumping. He picked the perfect songs for during dinner, and mixed it up during the three hours of dancing. Any request we may have had he was able to play them without hesitation. I would recommend him to anyone if you want the best DJ around. I saw family members dance that I would never have thought would be on the dance floor. Thanks again Nate.
Nate is awesome! He takes the time to meet with you and get a true feel for the atmosphere of your wedding. He does a great job keeping the wedding moving and making transitions from ceremony to reception, to dinner smooth and not awkward at all. We had 200 guests and every song he played had our guests up on the dance floor. He had every song we wanted and the sound of music was perfect! He was polite, attentive, and made it so easy for us as a couple! I highly recommend Nate for your special day or event.
Nate did a great job at our wedding! He was very organized and helpful and everyone had a great time dancing the night away! We highly recommend him!!
Nate is AMAZING!! We have been lucky enough to work alongside him on wedding days (we are wedding photographers) and the first time we met him, we knew that he was going to be our DJ! Not only is he a fantastic DJ and full of talent, but he is also an amazing MC! He does an amazing job helping create an awesome reception timeline and keeping everything running smoothly! We only gave him a song list of about 10 songs, because we know that he is such an expert DJ and he did not disappoint with his song choices! All of our guests continually raved about him throughout the night! He is my number one recommendation for all of our couples to contact because we LOVE Nate!
We decided to book Nate based off of our photographer's recommendation. She said that she had worked with him before and that he is absolutely phenomenal and truly cares about the couples he works with. She wasn't kidding, we couldn't have been happier with our experience with Nate and we got several compliments from guests about how great he was!! Working with Nate leading up to the wedding was a breeze and he went above and beyond on the day of to make sure the night was wonderful for us and our guests. He kept the party going, as promised, and we danced all night long! Book Nate, you will be so happy you did!!
My (now) husband and I loved working with Nate from start to finish. This guy is a pro. He was great at listening to our song preferences and making helpful suggestions for wedding party entry, bouquet toss, mother-son dance, etc. He helped us think through the timeline and followed it to the letter. I had absolute confidence that that he had our reception well in hand. And when pictures took a little longer than expected and the cake started to tip with the heat, he did the trouble-shooting. And what a great personality! My guests loved chatting with him. Nate had everyone there on the dance floor. My husband and I had a wonderful time dancing the evening away to our favorite songs and leaving the details in Nate's capable hands.
DJ Nate deejayed our wedding this past August and we do not have enough good things to say about him! He was professional, friendly, and easy to work with from start to finish. He took our list of "must plays" and "do not plays" and made an incredible set list of music that had the crowd pumping from start to finish. Our guests raved about all of the great songs he played. One guest even said, "Every time we start to leave he plays another great hit and we have to stay for just one more song!" Nate was extremely flexible and coordinated with our ceremony musician the day of the wedding leaving the bride to feel relaxed. Knowing I could count on Nate to do an amazing job helped ease any day-of jitters! My husband would proudly add that this was the ONE decision I allowed him to make and he knocked it out of the park by choosing DJ Nate!! Highly recommend!!
From the first time we met with Nate as a potential DJ for our wedding, he instantly put our minds at ease about the whole event! We knew that one thing we definitely did not have to worry about was our guests had a great time with Nate as our DJ. Nate was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process of planning the wedding as well as working closely with our coordinator on the day of the wedding to make sure things went smoothly. He made sure the dance floor was NEVER empty and countless people told us aftwards how fantastic he was. We would recommend him a thousand times over!
Nate was incredibly professional and had some of the highest quality equipment I have seen. He was available to answer questions leading up to our wedding and made sure he knew exactly what we were looking for. He went above and beyond to create a fun atmosphere for our reception. I saw people dancing that I normally wouldn't. He definitely read the crowd and played to that. I felt so relaxed knowing he was running "the show". You will not be disappointed if you choose Nate!
After meeting Nate the first time, both my husband and I really got excited for how much fun the wedding could actually be! Nate was professional and personable, we felt comfortable that he'd make our wedding fun for our guests. We weren't familiar with popular Indian music that friends and family would like, so Nate gave us some suggestions so we could listen at home. Nate also outlined which songs we'd need to pick, and if we didn't have preference, he filled in the gaps with great music. Neither my husband or I are very outgoing, so it was great to know that Nate could help get the guests into dancing, but more importantly, us! In all of the years I've known my husband, I've never seen him dance as much as he did that night. It was the most fun party I've been to, which is the best feeling after your wedding day :)
I don't live in Virginia, so I had to talk to most of my potential vendors on the phone. I actually didn't even meet Nate until after my wedding ceremony (that he did the music for!) From our first phone conversation, I knew Nate was the right fit for our wedding. He seemed fun, helpful, and caring. He was all that and more! He gave me tons of music suggestions, he set up a mini DJ booth in the middle of the woods to play music for the ceremony, and he even recorded a video of the entire wedding ceremony for us! Nate went above and beyond what I expected. He had no problem setting up and operating in our non-traditional "venue" - a tent in the woods on my parents' property. The best part about having Nate as our wedding DJ was definitely the reception. His music choices were awesome, and he played the songs our guests requested. The dance floor was packed the entire night! I know the reception would not have been as fun without Nate as our DJ. Thanks to him I will always have wonderful memories of dancing with our friends and family all night at our wedding!
Nate was an amazing wedding DJ at our wedding at the Winery at Bull Run! He got in all of our requests and also played his own music which got everyone up dancing the whole night! He really went above and beyond for us and I would highly recommend him!
Nate was fantastic on our special day! He kept everything moving and on time and had the reception area turn into a real party with the lights and music that he played! He was awesome with all the requests that I know my friends kept asking for and I couldn't have asked for the evening to go any better!!! Thank you so much for making our evening spectacular!!
Nate is professional, flexible, has excellent customer service, and he really experiences your wedding as if it were his. From the first day my husband and I met him, Nate was extremely welcoming and down to earth. Most importantly, he goes out of his way to make sure the bride and groom and everyone at the wedding is happy, including the crowd that he is entertaining! He hooked my mom (our officiant) up to a lapel microphone which was super awesome and easy for my mom, who is not exactly technologically savvy. He also provided signs for our initials for the Shoely Wed Game (make sure you ask him about that), he pleased my super critical sisters-in-law with his on-point music selections, and he MCed our whole wedding reception, making all the announcements for the shuttle arrivals and departures. My husband and I were also pleasantly surprised to find that night that he had taped our wedding ceremony, and the lion dance at our reception and posted it on his Facebook page. It was so nice to be able to watch the ceremony from the audience's point of view, and it was a great way for my husband and me to relive that amazing day! You will not go wrong with Nate.
By far best Wedding DJ available! Great and easy to work with. Was very accommodating during our day. Also offers military discounts so a plus for us GI / Veterans! Thank you so much Nate!
Nate was extremely professional and helpful during the whole process! He kept the wedding running smoothly by queuing big moments so the guests didn't miss anything. He also was extremely flexible when we had to move the wedding indoors last minute. He got chairs and equipment moving quickly so I didn't have to worry! He was very accommodating to all our requests. He also sent us timelines and other helpful information ahead of time. Nate is the best!
Nate was NOT intrusive, he was great with the kids that kept bombarding him while he was working and moved the crowd like a real DJ is supposed to. His setup and teardown was awesome and he got along with all of the other vendor. If you're looking for someone who take care of you special one-of-a-kind day- this is your many and he is worth every penny.
I knew we picked the right DJ for our wedding when every single other vendor we booked raved about how much they love Nate. I now see why. I told Nate when we first contacted him he had his work cut out for him because one of our main goals was to get people out on the dance floor... With families that aren't big dancers and very diverse music interests we knew it might be a challenge. Up front Nate provided example timelines and checklists to help plan the day which was extremely beneficial to me being that we did not have a wedding planner or day-of wedding coordinator. From an MC perspective Nate kept everything flowing seamlessly. His setup was timely and on point, especially since we were having our outdoor ceremony and indoor reception at two different locations. Guests continue to tell me how awesome our DJ was, playing exactly what they wanted to here and keeping the dance floor crowded all night long. I highly recommend Nate; you'll be in good hands if you do.
Nate was totally awesome. We were incredibly lucky to have picked him as our DJ - probably the best vendor choice we made. He was a total team player with the whole vendor team during set-up. He had solutions to challenges that didn't have anything to do with DJing. For example, he put his lights in our tent to create a really nice mood. He also appeared out of nowhere during photos to give me a hand warmer (it was a freezing November evening and we were doing pics outside). When it came to the actual music, I stopped counting how many people came up to me and said he was the best DJ they ever heard and that they didn't know how he had stolen their ipods. ;) - in other words they loved the music. He was fun, friendly and easy-going. I would choose him a hundred times over and recommend you do the same.
Nate the DJ is amazing! He asked for a list of songs I wanted to hear at my wedding. He played all the right songs at the right times and included even more! He's nice, professional, affordable, and great to work with! Highly recommend :)
Nate was great to work with! Not only did he keep the dance party hopping all night (which was a major feat as the temperature was in the 90s) and listen to our requests and ideas for music, but he did so much more. Nate advertised himself as "more than just a DJ" and that was very true. When we met with him ahead of time he offered suggestions for the schedule of our reception and gave us tips I never would have thought of. He offered to take control of the schedule for the night (like calling the table numbers for our buffet and the timing of the cake cutting, etc.) which was a great relief since we didn't have a wedding planner and I knew that I could trust him. I would highly recommend hiring Nate!
Nate is the absolute best DJ ever! He knows how to get the party started but also caters to the crowd and feels out the vibe of the party. He's the type of DJ that when left to do his thing can make even the anti dancers get up and have a good time. He took complete care of my husband and I and when it came to the lights and set up and even music choices he had us covered. Best decision ever going with Nate!
