Dan the Man!

Reviewed on 10/22/2011 Christene B

Dan Lamaestra was a great DJ and a pleasure to work with! He was very professional and went above and beyond as our DJ. The planning tools and other resources available on his website were very helpful in the planning process. We also worked through Dan for our wedding... Read More music. He was able to coordinate a violin and cello player for our ceremony and they did a beautiful job. I worked with MaryAnn (the cello player) to coordinate the wedding music and she offered us great advice to enhance the ceremony overall. The violin and cello duo were the perfect balance of sound for our location. Regarding the reception, Dan did an excellent job as the Master of Ceremonies and acted as our wedding coordinator to ensure everything flowed nicely. I really liked his DJ style, he isn't one of those cheesy DJs that drive guests crazy. He was very pleasant and had a great personality. We had one small snag with starting late but overall I would highly recommend Dan's services.

We used Musical DJs for our live musicians at the ceremony, sounds services, DJ services, and uplighting. They were FANTASTIC! Dan is very professional to work with, and reasonably priced, especially for the level of service he provides. We had two phone calls during the... Read More planning process, and they have a website where I was able to log in and put in ceremony information, select must play songs, and provide the bridal party information. It was convenient and put my mind at ease for the day of the wedding. The live musicians were wonderful – Dan even scored a specific song at my request. Dan was also our DJ that evening and I could not have been happier – the dance floor was always packed, and I liked every song that he played. And the uplighting – if you’re on the fence about getting it, do it! We had uplights that changed colors throughout the evening, and it made the ballroom look so much nicer than had they not been there. I was a little worried about the changing colors at first, but it worked so well! Dan also served as Emcee – he paced the events well, and kept everyone informed. I was worried about the reception because we didn’t have wedding planner, but Dan filled this role easily, and well. I can’t say enough about Musical DJs…they did a great job, and we received so many compliments about them from our guests. I will also say that getting live musicians, a DJ, and uplighting from one vendor was a big bonus!

His prep was easy: A phone call to discuss what we were looking for and any special requests (We wanted to do the Chicken Dance and have grandma and her 6 year old grandson lead it.

As MC he kept the pace of the event right on time (and hit every cue, including the Chicken Dance, right on the money!). As DJ he kept the dance floor full the ENTIRE night... right until the end! I could go on and on, but in summary: Musical DJs did us right, and Freddie really helped to make our special (Wedding) night! I would not hesitate one moment of booking Freddie for any future event.

DJ Jeremy was terrific at our wedding in May 2017.

We danced our faces off for hours, and we've heard from lots of people since that our DJ was great. Thanks Jeremy!
