Queen City DJ was simply amazing! Our day went picture perfect. This was not because we got lucky. Brad our DJ did a great job of planning and preparation leading up to the big day. We met with him multiple times to discuss everything from the music to the flow of the day. We... Read More were very confident going into the wedding day that things would go smoothly and Queen City DJs delivered. Their online portal made selecting the music playlist both easy and fun. Brad was great at giving advice on the reception but at the same time he understood it was our day. He was so helpful in suggesting things we might want to do or stay away from. He brought up adding the lighting and showed us multiple examples. We made the last minute decision to add it and we instantly knew we made a great choice. I highly recommend the lighting as it made the pictures and our room really awesome. And once the dance floor got going, the lighting really added to the fun. When it came to the day Brad was in contact with all of vendors taking care of things we probably didn't even know about. The actual reception was a big hit, he kept the dance floor full and kept to our music style the whole night. But, at the same time he was able to read the crowd to keep the party going all night. Brad even came up multiple times during the reception to my wife and I to check on us and even offered to grab us drinks from the bar! I mean how can you beat that??? Queen City DJs truly made our night one to remember. Weddings are extremely stressful to plan and get together. Getting good vendors can really make or break your day. I highly recommend Queen City DJs and would be happy to talk to anyone who is interested in booking them.

Queen City DJs and MC and Lighting are simply the best! I couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to have Brad be our wedding DJ and MC for the night. He far exceeded any expectations we could have had – from making sure the music and events went off without a hitch, to... Read More checking on us at dinner to see if we needed anything, including making sure our drinks were never empty! Brad is a great guy and a pleasure to work with. He was extremely professional and always willing to answer a question, offer advice and help out wherever necessary. He took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions before the wedding to make sure we had covered all our bases. The organization and effort this team puts into making sure your wedding day is the best it can be is simply amazing. Brad was very flexible with our budget and wanted to make sure we got the best bang for our buck – he didn’t try to oversell us and was committed to making sure we received exceptional service. We hired Brad not only to be our DJ, but also our lighting vendor. He met with us at the venue to try out different lighting looks and he also installed bistro lighting upon our request at the venue. The venue liked the bistro lighting so much it is now a semi-permanent fixture for their outdoor patio and it looks amazing! The uplighting that we used can change to any color you’d like throughout the evening, which was especially cool for transitioning from the ceremony to reception! I can’t say enough good things about the customer service and personal attention that Brad offered us throughout our whole wedding experience. He is truly remarkable at what he does and knows how to read a crowd and keep good vibes rolling throughout the night! A BIG thank you to Brad for being simply the best!

Brad and Brian are two of the coolest guys in the wedding business! I did most of my pre-wedding communication with Brad and then had Brian as our DJ on the day. Brian. Is. THE MAN! He read the crowd perfectly and kept almost all of our guest dancing until our very last song.... Read More Full disclosure - we are very picky when it comes to music. We're the type of people that skip 2/3 of the songs on every Spotify playlist. Even in my Jameson fueled haze, I found myself pointing at Brian and screaming "yaaaaasss" every time a new song started! Ok, the details: 1. Brad, who does most of the communication is prompt and personable. 2. Their equipment was state of the art and sounded amazing both during our ceremony and reception. 3. They were able to advise me on my timeline and structure (i.e. speeches before special dances...) 4. They are 100% Cool and 0% Cheese We are so so happy with our choice to book Queen City djs for our wedding!

I simply cannot express in words how great Brad was on our special day and throughout this entire process. Where do I begin? From the start, Brad was always quick to respond to the many emails a nervous bride sent. He was always very courteous and accommodating as we were... Read More planning a wedding that was to take place two hours across the state. Whether that availability was by phone or email or even allowing us to call him during the late evenings, Brad was always there. He walked us through every step and provided his expertise through suggestions that made the wedding process that much easier. When it came down to meeting in person, Brad even accommodated by meeting us in our hometown (2hours away) before a wedding that he was to DJ. He was extremely thorough and calmed by biggest fear of getting both of our families on the dance floor during the reception. From past attendances at weddings on either sides, this was anticipated to be an extremely difficult task. During the actual day, Brad created an absolutely beautiful touch to our venue through his uplighting and monogram. Not only did he send us pictures of different lighting hues, but he created a custom designed monogram based on one that was on our table cards! Pictures do not do it justice :) Brad took control of the night- everything flowed perfectly and naturally as he went with last minute changes to bridal party entrances. Brad and his company, Queen City DJ’s , was one of the best choices I made. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night.... something I have never seen at any wedding I have been too and completely shocked me given how our extended families are with dancing at weddings. Brad's talent as a DJ is next to none. We even had other couples from the wedding next door join us for dancing as they stated, "you guys have the best music." Let Brad do his thing and you will not regret it- we are still getting compliments. Thank you Brad from the bottom of our hearts!

We hired Brad Berry to DJ our wedding.

We felt the DJ was a very important decision because they really help create the flow of the ceremony and reception.

Our reception followed and Brad did an outstanding job making sure he played the appropriate songs for what we were doing at the time; toasts, cake cutting, first dance, etc… After all those details were out of the way we had a blast out dancing with all our wedding guests. Brad played such great music and also was gracious enough to take several requests from our guests. The dance floor was packed from the beginning of the night until the end of the event. I can honestly say, we could not have chosen a better DJ. We both had so many people tell us how great the music was and how much fun everyone had dancing.
