Marc Augenbraum DJ Services Reviews

DJ Matthew Luck was our DJ for our wedding. We highly recommend him. He helped us plan our key songs such as the first dance and cake cutting songs all while we were living in a different state. He provided us with a list of popular songs which...
was very helpful when it all seemed overwhelming. He was punctual to the wedding and easily reachable for anything we needed prior to the day of the wedding. We gave him a few songs we wanted played, and he was able to play music to the crowd to keep everyone engaged and having a good time. He is definitely experienced. He noticed that our food services were running behind and approached us to initiate the cake cutting and toasts to keep things on schedule. We really appreciated that because we wanted enough time at the end to dance which we were able to get because of him. Highly recommend booking DJ Matthew Luck for your wedding or any other event.

I was originally referred to Marc Augenbraum through a mutual connection. After checking out his website and speaking with him, I knew that his services would be perfect for our big day. Seriously, go to his website and look at all the "Best Of...
" and "Couple's Choice" and other various awards and accolades he has. If that isn’t enough, just keep reading here. Before we signed a contract, we had a long conversation about my wants and expectations, as well as about Marc's experience and services. He made me feel very confident in my choice by clearly outlining pricing as well as a general plan for the day. Our wedding ceremony was outside with a reception inside, so we needed sound support in several locations to varying degrees.
Marc then set me up with Matthew Luck, who would be the actual DJ on site. Our experience with him was just as phenomenal. My now-wife and I talked with him on the phone, again going over expectations and our joint plan for the day. Matt provided us with a wedding planning worksheet where we were able to outline all of our song choices, special requests, "do-not-plays", and anything you can think of. When the day came, Matt arrived early and was all set up outside before I even knew what was going on. Sound delivery during the ceremony was incredible, including using multiple microphones to capture our officiant, my wife and I, and other speakers.
Once we moved inside, Matt provided light, easy musical accompaniments for cocktail hour. As we were planning the night with Matt, he said he takes pride in being able to read a room and tailor the music to keep the party going. He started the party and blew it out for hours on end, delivering the perfect playlist for guests of all ages and musical tastes to find something to enjoy. Matt also served as a great emcee for the night, not only introducing the bridal party, parent dances, and events such as the cake cutting, but he also kept things moving when we transitioned to another room for dinner and toasts. He made sure that sound was sufficient in there and kept everyone moving from place to place to keep the event on track.
If you've read this far, congratulations because I can only assume that you've now made the easy decision to go with Marc Augenbraum DJ Services. And as his name would imply, I hope you have the "Luck" to have Matt on-site with you. All of Marc's prestigious awards and recognitions are extremely well-earned, and I can't imagine our wedding without the top-shelf service he and Matt provided.

Our family poured over numerous different websites and companies looking for the perfect DJ for our party and finally settled on working with Marc. To say the least, we have no regrets! Marc worked for quite some time with my mom to help her ...
pick perfect and meaningful songs to play throughout their 40th wedding anniversary party. She had a vision of the vibe/theme of the party and Marc really worked with us to try and make that a reality. Leading up to the party, the music was at the top of her list of things she was really excited about (which is impressive given the planning part of an event isn't often all that fun). Long story short, Marc was amazing at every step of the process. He is accommodating and flexible and his communication style and personal attention really made us feel like he cared as much about our event as we did. We couldn’t be more grateful for his time and expertise. You won’t regret adding Marc to part of your event team!

He even played the Pennsylvania Polka at my mother-in-law’s request, and got all of the Polish pronunciations in the wedding party correct!

Marc did play the requested song list scattered throughout the night of about 15 songs that both my husband and I chose beforehand and was professional throughout the entire process.
One thing I will mention is that my guests were really not on the dancefloor for most of the time – people got up and danced sporadically but it was by no means a 3.5 hour block of straight dancing. I did forewarn him in our initial meeting that I wasn’t sure how much people would dance but he assured me that he would be able to get everyone on their feet/dancing because he was great at reading the crowd and determining music based off their reactions to the music that was being played. However, people stayed at their tables or minged for the majority of the reception and I did have a couple guests tell me afterwards that some of the music played wasn’t music that would get them out of their chairs and to the dancefloor because it was too slow/old. Overall though, I would say that Marc did a nice job and the wedding/reception did turn out wonderfully. He also provided me with a great video showing highlights of the evening that I plan to share with my family and friends.

Planning for the Wedding Reception:
We met with him in the beginning of our planning process, and he was very helpful from the get go. While my wife and I were still trying to figure out how a wedding is supposed to happen in the first place, he was prepared to help us make it through even if we had no idea what we would need from him yet:
- He provided us with a huge list of songs from all genres and eras so we could start to get an idea of what we wanted the reception to sound like. (A list that I am actually still enjoying since it has a ton of classics I had forgotten about.)
- He helped us figure out how a reception generally runs. He obviously has a lot of experience with weddings and therefore could guide us on what would work verses what would likely be better staying a fantasy. :) And all while absolutely not imposing anything on us. He offered advice but insisted that it was our wedding and he would work with whatever we wanted to do.
- He provided us with a sample timeline that we were able to use to determine our desired reception plans.
- All this in the first meeting before we even booked him!
Then throughout the whole planning process he was always just one email or phone call away if we had questions. I tried to set a couple meetings with him as we were getting closer to the wedding date and had to cancel them because of family matters, both times he was totally understanding and helped me reschedule; never sounding condescending or somewhat annoyed.
We ended up having an hour long meeting over skype to go over the details. He also had previously provided us with an online form that had questions to help us make sure we had all the details worked out for our reception.
All in all he was very organized and a pleasure to work with, but
this was all during the planning period.
On the Wedding Day:
During the actual reception, he was able to make our wedding reception lots of fun. All my guests will remember that night for a very long time. I am from West Africa and had some family flying in and I asked Marc if we could incorporate some of our African music for them to enjoy and feel at home during the wedding. He never heard these songs before, but as a great DJ is supposed to, he was able to mix them along with all the good old school, hot40 hits, and the lovely traditional tunes. The whole musical environment of that party was fun. He mixed traditional and modern like it was meant to be together and this kept the dance floor filled! It was an amazing night.
Marc was also a great MC, and worked with the vendors to start the different elements of the reception (dinner, cake etc.) when they were ready. He spoke clearly and audibly, did no awkward jokes and came to us to see us and find out when we were ready for our parts (first dance, garter and bouquet toss etc). He was cool but still professional throughout the night.
I had to write a great review to thank Marc for his work. He deserves your business and he has the knowledge, the experience, and the skills to make your wedding reception an unforgettable one.

He expertly saved us from a potentially very embarrassing situation by not allowing a drunk guest of ours to make a toast by politely explaining that there wasn't enough time for another toast.

that would play songs the crowd could certainly enjoy, yet matching the environment of the hotel. From the initial interview, Marc was our guy…we read many positive reviews on him and agree with all of his highlights. Most importantly, at least for us, he knows how to read a crowd, while keeping in line with your music tastes. Throughout the night we were told how great the music was…and it’s really all because of Marc. He was very easy to work with; he has high quality sound equipment; a strong voice to introduce the wedding party and move things along; he played the music we wanted; and of course, catered to the crowd (we had a full spectrum of ages, so, it was not an easy task). For me, one of the most memorable moments of the night was the string of songs he played at the tail end of dinner leading into and finishing off the toasts – I couldn’t have picked any better myself…they really fit the mood. And so it goes back to playing the songs you like, while fitting the situation at hand, which I can’t stress how important that is in a wedding DJ. Marc worked with us to find our musical tastes and he took off with it on the day…not one song was played that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. No question about it, he made the reception memorable…couldn’t be happier!

After I hired Marc, we met to go over my and my bride's expectations for our wedding day. Marc took careful notes, provided a very helpful schedule-of-events template for us to work off of, and was amenable to our requests. Throughout the time leading up to our wedding, Marc was always responsive to emails and calls, which gave us peace of mind that we had chosen the right person.
As for his work at our wedding: it was absolutely amazing. He honored our playlist and do-not-play list, and--as we requested--played a number of songs that were on neither, but matched the style suggested by our requests. He made sure the music was appropriate for each part of the reception. During dinner, there were quieter tunes that didn't drown out conversation; during the balance of the reception, he made sure the dance floor was always full. People loved the music. My wife and I could not have picked a better set of songs to play at our reception. It is also worth noting that Marc was a great MC: he coordinated with our other vendors to ensure that each event of the day was announced and announced on time.
I would highly, highly recommend Marc to anyone looking for a wedding DJ. I thought he was a good value, professional, responsive, and was an important lynchpin for the success of our wedding reception. I have zero regrets hiring him--and have nothing but praise for his fine work at our wedding.

ating with us over email, phone, and even Skype late at night. After interviewing Marc and getting a feel for his low-key and straightforward style, we knew almost immediately that we wanted him to work our reception. He was accommodating when we asked him later to provide a second system for amplification and music playback at our outdoor ceremony, and he even set up a personal Dropbox folder for us to exchange music and timeline information with him.
Fully invested in our event, Marc joined us on our venue walk-through about a month before the wedding. On the Big Day, he arrived three hours before he was slated to go "live" so he had plenty of time to set up his ceremony rig, do a proper sound check, and coordinate remaining details with us. Our event featured cocktail attire, and even Marc's setup clothes were nice enough to blend in with the crowd!
During the ceremony, Marc did a great job of riding the mic levels for our readers, the officiant, and us as bride and groom so that we could all be heard equally well. For our reception, the reviews from our guests were unanimously positive, focusing on his great music choices and his perfect sound levels. Dinner music consisted of jazz and big band at a comfortable low volume, and his dance music managed to walk that fine line of being louder and livelier without being overbearing. Instead of being on the mic all night trying to ramp up the crowd, Marc let the music speak for him, for which we were very grateful.
Our crowd consisted largely of baby boomers and folks in their 20s and 30s. Though their collective taste in music proved to be somewhat enigmatic, Marc fine-tuned his playlist all night long, and managed to keep the majority of our guests at the party until the very end at 11pm. Throughout the evening, Marc was respectful not only of of the timeline we gave him, but also of our last-minute changes as we reorganized toasts or had to slip the schedule a bit. We highly recommend him and would love to work with him again.

There was no 3rd party booking agent, we worked directly with Marc and could see that he is vested in the quality of service provided. Marc is well experienced in the industry and thus was able to customize the program with us. He has a solid music knowledge as he even recognized the Hawaiian artist/song (Iz Kamakawiwoole) we selected for the mother-son dance! Additionally, if you're mostly a do it yourself-er, his network within the industry can be useful to help you along. He was always willing to do a face-to-face meet in the Northern Virginia area and was responsive (usually less than 12 hours) to us even after we had finalized key points. The best compliments come when least expected, so when my great uncle commented how impressed he was with the DJ's command of the room during the reception, I knew he nailed it! There was not a dry eye in the room during the mother-son dance and he followed that up by getting everyone on the dance floor, even the elderly folks (even those from outside the country)! Sure, on your biggest day, you want a rockin' party, but you are also showcasing yourself, your family and most importantly your relationship so we chose Marc for his professionalism, class, and to keep the party rockin'!

At each step of the process, it was clear Marc wanted to make sure the music - and consequently the mood of the event - accounted for what we wanted to hear (and explicitly didn't want to hear). While he made every effort to gather our thoughts, it was so comforting to also be able to rely on his expertise and approach to help guide the event's development.

As we got closer to the event, when other vendors were having issues or hiccups, Marc was supremely prepared - invaluable to our peace of mind. On the day of the event, Marc was definitely on his A-game. I can't tell you how many people came up to us even before dinner was being served and said the music he had selected was absolutely perfect. During the reception, Marc knew exactly how to pace songs, when to ramp up the crowd and when to move into slower songs to give people a breather. He executed transitions between different reception milestones brilliantly (dinner, first dance, cake cutting, father-daughter, etc.) People had such an absolute blast because of the music he selected with only minimal guidance from us prior to the event.
