Our dream for our reception when we were planning was that our two families and friends would mesh together in one environment. Fortunately, that dream became a reality because from the start of the reception to the end Dj Nemar orchestrated a ...
true masterpiece of entertainment keeping everyone on the dance floor having the best time as one.
Dj Nemar truly knows how to go from song to song as his mixology background shines. He got along with everyone at the reception and took our interests and requests to heart when we met with him in advance to prepare. My wife and I still to this day get many compliments on how great the DJ was and how great the reception was thanks to the music and atmosphere he created.
Highly recommend Dj Nemar to anyone in the Cincinnati area looking for a great Dj for their upcoming wedding!

Between emails and calls, it took a couple of days to reach him. Our venue actually wasn't able to get ahold of him until the day before our event to coordinate timing which was kind of scary. The other thing is that you take a big risk with him in that I think he is a one man shop.

Nemar was the DJ at our wedding this past summer. He met with us a couple times before the wedding and even visited our venue with us. We used a new venue that had never hosted a wedding before and Nemar gave great insight about the floor plan...
to the event coordinator. He provided the uplighting which made our open-air patio have some character and look very different than it usually does during the day.
He took time to listen to my husband and I about our music tastes and was very patient when noting our extensive "do not play' list. True to his word, none of those songs played at our reception. He mixed songs on the spot and many of our guests were impressed that a DJ was actually being a DJ. He took time to learn the pronunciations of our wedding party, including a last minute sub. Everyone was up dancing and really knew how to read the dance floor.

We originally chose Maize Music because it was a preferred vendor at our reception venue and also because of the great prices and we ultimately were SO impressed with the service we received.
We were planning our wedding from another state,...
so we had our first meeting with Nemar via phone. He was great about answering all of our questions and following up with emails, etc. Plus, you do all of your payments online and there is also an online planning tool, which really just made things a breeze.
Nemar matches you with a DJ based on your taste in music. We were paired with DJ Mark and couldn't have been happier! We met with Nemar and Mark the week of our wedding to go over a final plan, such as intros, special songs, do not play lists, etc. The meeting was a great opportunity for Mark to get to know us better, and he was so accommodating of all of my requests. My husband and I chose some less common songs, which Mark had no problem finding. A lot of our formal dance (father/daughter, mother/son, etc) were also really long, so Mark was able to cut them down perfectly so our guests wouldn't get bored watching the dances. We were also able to send him a live-recording of a song for our first dance and he cut that so it sounded perfect!
I've been to lots of weddings where the DJ will play songs the bride and groom have requested him/her not to play or where the DJ hasn't played songs the couple really wanted to hear. We did not have this problem with Mark at all! Every song he played was excellent, and he even went back to a song he had started to transition out of when I asked him to. He also did a great job at keeping the dance floor full. Things got off to a slow start, but he figured out exactly how to get our friends up and dancing and keep them there! He was even good about making sure all of our guests - no matter their age - got up at some point to dance!
Another thing that was great about Mark were some of the suggestions he gave us for introductions and getting the party started. He offered to give brief introductions of each member of our bridal party, which was a fun way for our guests to get to know our wedding party a little better...and a fun way for us to embarrass a few of them!
We couldn't have been happier with Maize Music, and specifically DJ Mark!

Maize made my reception. Enrique was amazing and really knew our tastes. Their equipment was top notch and sounded superb. He even had a custom mix for our last name. We couldn't have asked for better.

I was honestly nervous about choosing the timelines of the songs that I want played. Maize gives you access to an online music board, I was still nervous :). Once I met David and saw his level of energy, I knew that I had nothing to worry about...
. David played every song that I asked for, he played every special request. The reception for our Wedding was so much fun, mostly because of Maize Music. I could not be more pleased with how much fun our reception was.

At the time of booking, it was a little bit difficult to get a hold of someone to ask questions, and I felt there were a few times that some of the interaction was a litte "sketchy." However, I knew the Madison would not recommend someone that ...
wasn't worth your time and money.
When all is said and done, I was beyond pleased with the job the Maize Music did. Their online planning tool and music selection list are great! We had a few issues selecting some of the details (specific songs with events, wedding party final order, etc.) and we actually did not have it all finished at the time our planning tool was cut off. Once we finally did decide on those details, I emailed Nemar and he actually called me back and re-opened our planning tool so that I could enter all of the information!
When we made it to the reception, Nemar was there, along with a second DJ, David. Both came out and explained to me exactly how things were going to run and got everyone in order. They were great dealing with a few of the guys in our wedding party that got a little rowdy before the enterance. After we entered, David was great about coming up to my husband and I letting us know what he was going to do next and what people needed to be doing. While keeping us up to speed with what was going on, he was also not overly in our face about "it's time for this, its time for that." He would simply say "this is next, let me know when you are set." Then all I would have to do is look at him and he was on the microphone getting the ball rolling.
Both Nemar and David had great personalities and worked really well with our group!

After our wedding we had so many people compliment on our D.J. We actually have 2 people that we know who booked Maize Music for their receptions as well. Very professional, played the music we wanted and didn't play the songs we did not. They ...
are REAL DJ's, the mix up your music with seamless transitions between songs that keep your guests entertained. Most "DJ's" just play your music and put it on cross-fade, anyone can do that (and for the price you pay for that you might as well get your money's worth). Impress your guests with something different and fun.
