The DJ (Todd) from Power Station was awful. We had originally engaged Power Station for a Photographer and DJ for our daughter's wedding and reception on 7/3/20 for 150 people. Then COVID caused a change of plans and the wedding was reduced t...
o 10 people. We really did not need a DJ for 10 people but we went ahead with the DJ and photographer. The photographer was very good and I will review her separately. The DJ was awful:
1. He texted the bride the week of the wedding and asked if his wife could attend, because she had never seen a “Covid wedding”. My daughter said no, that we were limiting guests due to Covid and the wife could not attend. I might add that my daughter’s wedding was not a freak show, to be gawked at by a stranger. The DJ responded that that’s ok, I told her it wouldn’t be anything special. Really? Why would he say that to the bride, a few days before the wedding? Trust me, changing the wedding from 150 people to 10 people was stressful enough. We did not need the “it won’t be anything special” comment.
2. He talked to the officiant’s husband through the entire ceremony (which was only 10 minutes long). I am hoping the conversation will not come through on the videographer’s recording or that, if it does, it can be deleted or muted.
3. He missed the cue for the recessional and started the music when they were almost at the end of the aisle. (Probably distracted by his conversation). He should have been paying attention.
4. He was asked to play the “first dance” music for an abbreviated time, as the couple only wanted to dance for about 30 seconds. He let the song play to the end and they eventually just stopped dancing mid-song.
5. While we were having our toasts, he was again talking loudly, about 10 feet away from me, with the officiant and her husband. I had to leave the toasts, walk over to them, and ask them to please be quiet.
He had very few duties for this very small wedding and he didn't do them well. When I complained to Power Station after the wedding, they had the DJ apologize to me. I don't want or need an apology. I needed an excellent DJ for my daughter's wedding and, for $2,000, I did not get one. Failing that, I would expect some sort of refund, but I did not get that either. As my husband commented, it seemed like the DJ just "phoned it in".
