BEST DJ EXPERIENCE EVER!! My now husband and I met Marcel from Nightshift Sounds at a bridal expo in Biloxi Mississippi. We were immediately drawn to his booth because of his professionalism and overall warm demeanor, he made us feel relaxed, not pressured. After a brief... Read More conversation, we were ready to work with him, SOOOO glad that we did. After meeting with Marcel and going over our likes and dislikes we felt he had a better understanding of who we were as a couple and what we wanted our wedding to be. He was patient and understanding and made us feel 100% comfortable. On our wedding day, he was early, set up everything he needed to on time and was ready for the beginning of the ceremony, exactly as we had discussed. People are still talking about our reception the great variety of music that was played and the overall feeling in the air of Celebration!! Definitely one of the best moments of our lives and we will never forget Marcel and Nightshift Sound, thank you for making our wedding unbelievable.

Marcel did a good job of facilitating our rehearsal and wedding. We felt a little rushed during the rehearsal as he had to make another event, but it went smoothly. As far as the ceremony he helped out with as much as possible. Even in bad weather when we almost made a... Read More transition to another site he was open to change. We requested music with Marcel and he did not play all the specific songs that were requested, but a good soundtrack was provided. My biggest regret would be that at our meeting with Marcel we asked him to call and ask if additional people wanted to make toasts because we had a feeling more than the usual guests would want to make toasts. He only left room for two people and quite a few people were slighted (the brides family) because they were under the impression they could make toasts. I suppose they could have gone and asked him, but some people do not feel comfortable cutting into the wedding schedule. Other than that we had a great weekend and we would definitely consider hiring Marcel for any future events.
