Mark came recommended to us by a very close friend and from the very first phone call, we knew he would be the DJ for us! He was friendly, professional and thorough with all the planning details. Mark made us feel very special and showed a lot of excitement in wanting to be a... Read More part of our special day. He accommodated all of our crazy requests from the non-traditional ceremony, crazy songs, extra equipment and even made it possible for me to serenade my husband during the reception. He hit every mark and thought of every small detail. The music we chose for the dinner music was in the era of 1920s Jazz, guitar jazz etc and he really captured our personalities. He far exceeded our expectations. Dancing was epic! He had all the right moves, songs and even danced right along with us. Mark looked like he was having fun and it reflected in his work. Our guests felt like we had a celebrity in house. We danced until the very end! If you're looking for a talented, professional DJ with fresh beats, personal feel, and great spirit, Mark is your guy! We highly recommend him! Thank you, Mark for being a huge part of our wedding. We couldn't be happier!

What a Party!

Mark provided the entertainment for our wedding reception at the Columbus Athenaeum as well as our ceremony music. Everything went off without a hitch, our guests were on their feet dancing before dinner was even over (mostly the under 5 year old guests who couldn't wait to get... Read More the party started! So cute!). Mark made everything run smoothly, the music kept a good flow from cocktail hour into dinner and into the party through the night. The dance floor was never empty at any time and I know I personally spent the entire night dancing with my family, friends, and new husband. I was a fan back in his WNCI days and so many guests recognized him as well and were so excited he was there. If you want a professional who will keep the dance floor full - go with Mark!

One word...EPIC!

We loved Mark! As an event and theatre producer, I knew I needed a DJ that I could trust to keep the entire evening on track so that I had nothing to worry about. I needed to be sure to have the right vendors so I could enjoy my wedding and not be tempted to work it myself. Mark... Read More gave us exactly that. He made me trust him from the beginning. That trust was more than well deserved, and he really delivered. Our guests were on the dance floor from the first song to the last with no exceptions. It was packed! Mark also worked with us to accommodate our special requests. He went and found/purchased music for us, he allowed us to use his equipment mixed with some of our own so we could have live music intertwined with the recorded music. He was so easy to work with. A bad DJ can ruin the flow of your wedding. Invest in your DJ. Go with Mark!

I'd known Mark's name, having listened to him on the radio when I was younger, and was excited to hear he was doing weddings. He came highly recommended from my aunt who said he was the only person we should consider for our wedding since he'd done so well at her own daughter's... Read More wedding. We loved that he invited us to his home to meet and discuss our wedding.

We loved his musical set and had the best night celebrating with our friends and family.

Mark was the DJ for our wedding, and I can't imagine having anybody else there for us. He was super flexible with all our requests, yet also very organized as far as keeping us on track with the itinerary of items we wanted to make sure we got through at our wedding. When it...

Mark is a true professional and was so easy to work with from the start! We were recommended by a friend and by our venue so we knew we wouldn't be disappointed.

Mark knows exactly the music to play

Give Mark a few suggestions of what you do and don't want to hear and he'll magically create an entire playlist of the most perfect songs for your wedding. I was blown away that he grasped the vibe we wanted for our wedding so well (funky dance party) and was able to match the...

Mark is also extremely professional, cheerful and pleasant to work with. My husband and I enjoyed his energy at our wedding and felt he went above and beyond to keep the party going all night long.

I recently got married in July, and was lucky enough to have Mark Dantzer DJ our wedding. During the wedding planning process I came across lots of tricky decisions to make, but hiring Mark as our wedding DJ was not one of them. We knew we wanted Mark to DJ our wedding so we...

His years of experience make him the absolute best in Columbus. He knows how to get a crowd on the dance floor and keep them there for hours on end. He DJ'd our ceremony and reception (both at Dock580) and we couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. During our meeting prior to the wedding he listened to all of my requests and made extremely helpful recommendations. He made sure he had the timing of the music exactly perfect for our ceremony and it meant a lot to me. Throughout the night his music selections and enthusiastic MC'ing kept the crowd upbeat and dancing all night long. It was truly a wonderful experience to work with Mark Dantzer. One of the most important things to me in planning our wedding was that every element of it reflected my husband and I, and with Mark's help the music definitely did just that. He is definitely the best in the biz.
