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.

I got married to my best friend in September 2017 and we hired DJ Freddie B as our wedding DJ. Both my wife and I feel that the DJ for a wedding really sets the tone and can easily “make or break” the wedding experience. Well, DJ Freddie B definitely delivered exceptional...

We both feel that the wedding would have not been as fun and joyous as it was without DJ Freddie B’s services and commitment to making sure we had the best experience! We are forever grateful to Freddie for providing such excellent service for our big day and making it a night to remember. Would we hire him again or recommend him? Absolutely, without hesitation!!! If you are looking for a DJ who is passionate about his art and delivers exceptional service, Freddie is your guy!

I can’t say enough about Freddie Borras. We hired him because he was well recommended by a friend and everyone else on the wedding websites apparently. From the beginning, he made me feel more at ease because he was super positive, supportive and sooo excited about our wedding.... Read More He is professional, energetic, and really helpful with planning out the timeline of the reception and brought up logistical wedding things that I didn’t think about. He was an amazing DJ and a really hyped and pumped up MC. With that alone, I would recommend hiring him. What stood out for me though was his warm personality. Sure we paid him to be our DJ/MC but it felt like he was also part of the family celebrating with us. My aunts and moms loved dancing with him and told me what a nice guy he was. During our Hora Loca another DJ hopped on and Freddie didn’t just stand around. He helped pass out the party items and showed people how to do the line dances. This guy does not stop moving. We were told several times what a great DJ we had and were asked if he was a friend of ours before the wedding. Freddie won’t just DJ/MC your wedding; he will be an essential component to a successful and fun night. Thanks Freddie!

I'm pretty much a train wreck of a bride, I put together the entire wedding in less than two months. I contacted DJ Freddie B on referral only 2 weeks out!

He was flexible to my many last minute changes and was able to put me at ease and offer advice based upon his extensive experience.

DJ Freddie B also had the most reasonable price. I can't thank him enough for how much help he was and couldn't have pulled this off without him. He helped make my day perfect as far as coordinating details and making it the most memorable night celebrating with all my favorite people.

DJ Jeremy was amazing for our wedding reception in August.

From Musical DJ's, Jeremy was recommended to me by a friend who had Jeremy at her wedding, and I learned he is also DJ-ing another wedding in her family. To be honest it was a bit difficult to get a hold of Jeremy at first because I think we had initially contacted him during a... Read More popular vacation time, but once we established contact he was easy to correspond with throughout the process. Musical DJ's also had great packages that kept us in our budget. From our first meeting, I immediately felt like I could trust him and he completely exceeded our expectations! I had certain songs and events in my timeline that I felt were unique to my wedding, and Jeremy accommodated and MC'd all of it seamlessly. He was an amazing MC, was super energetic and professional (not pushy like some DJs), and my family almost never left the dance floor! I hope we can work with Jeremy again in the future!

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!

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 would not hesitate one moment of booking Freddie for any future event.
