Jeremy was awesome! He created a mashup song for my dad and I to dance to and it was perfect.

Firstly, my husband and I are not your run of the mill music lovers. We were not looking for a pop-infused top 40's, typical wedding music DJ as we and most of our guests are more inclined toward the punk music scene. That being said, we were looking for a DJ who could fuse that... Read More with some of our other tastes and avoid the overplayed, usual wedding nonsense. We had Jeremy from Ray the DJ. Upon meeting him, my husband and I were a tad skeptical. He made suggestions we vetoed right out of the gate and we were not sure he was 'getting' what we were looking for. After taking a step back though, we now realize he was just feeling out exactly what we did and DID NOT want. Jeremy was very responsive via email and in person. We told him what kind of atmosphere we wanted to create and also gave him two lists prior to the wedding: Must plays and Do not plays. We talked about artists we liked and did not like and what we could tolerate if guests requested. It worked out. He was able to do everything we asked, including changing the first dance song minutes before the first dance. Jeremy did a great job playing what made everyone happy, avoiding all the things we hate, while infusing things to make all of the age groups having fun. We received many compliments on the DJ and music chosen/played and would definitely work with him again. Jeremy blew our initial impression of him out of the water. Also, very reasonably priced.

My husband and I had a tough time deciding between a band or DJ for a wedding, but we went with Ray and we’re SO glad we did! He was the perfect DJ for the kind of party we wanted.

My husband and I had Ray dj our recent wedding at Troon North Golf Club. He was amazing! Ray and I had an initial call when I first got engaged. He was fun, personable, and clearly had a lot of experience making weddings memorable. I met with him again before the wedding and... Read More he made me feel like I was in good hands - he also made himself available for a last minute phone call when I decided, two days before, that I wanted to add an additional dance with my mom. He has an online portals that allows the one to clearly outline the songs they'd like played as well as what are the special songs (i.e - first dance, parent/child dance, grand entrance). It made the process so easy and organized. In addition, he and his team are SOOO responsive. I was always blown away by their response time and ability to quickly make themselves available for a phone call/question. Ray orchestrated the entire night and did a great job! He kept people on the dance floor with his great song choice and clearly ensured that all speeches/dances were done in a timely and seamless manner. I would highly, highly recommend him and his team!

Marcus was our DJ and he did our ceremony and reception music, as well as our lighting and everything was fantastic!!! We would recommend him to any couple looking for a fun, memorable night! He met with us initially in person to go over what the process would be and was... Read More receptive to my fiance's request to put together the playlist for cocktail hour, as he has more specific, non- traditional music tastes. We talked to Marcus several times prior to the wedding, and he always seemed to understand what we were looking for. We loved the online system that Ray the DJ uses to keep everything organized, which allows you to put in all the details, special dance songs, special requests and do not play lists. Marcus played a variety of songs that allowed all age ranges to dance, and then as the night went on, adjusted for the people that were there and focused on what was getting them dancing, which happened to be 90's and 00's hip hop. He checked in with us several times during the event to make sure that we were happy and he never took a break. We got a ton of compliments throughout the night. The lighting that Marcus set up was also AMAZING, and set the mood for the night. We are so happy we hired Marcus as our DJ!

You can choose the girl's dresses, the guy's suits and the flowers, but that does not complete a wonderful wedding. You need great music and someone who can orchestrate the evening.

He showed up early the afternoon of our wedding to ensure everything was set up and ready to go on time. He did a phenomenal job during the ceremony and reception.

The DJ for my wedding was Mike, and I can't say enough good things about him. He was beyond helpful at our planning meeting and made sure to answer any and all questions we had.

He then mixed it all together and sent it to us so we could practice. It came out better then I had hoped. On the actual wedding day everything went off without a hitch. He kept the whole night moving and did everything we wanted. The majority of our guests love to dance, and Mike made sure we could dance the whole night.

When we started the planning process, Breanna, the office manager, was very prompt at responding to emails and was so helpful! We liked the portal that we were able to request songs, make payments, and keep everything organized. However, on the wedding day DJ Jeremy was a... Read More little more hands on than we hoped for. He did a decent job at playing our requested songs, but he did play the incorrect 'last song'. He also kept talking with my husband and I at the sweetheart table. This was a time for us to relax and take it all in, and spend extra time together. Jeremy stopped by the sweetheart table while we were eating and interrupted and wanted to discuss our honeymoon? I had assumed that he would do his own thing and only talk to us when necessary. He was very nice, but it just didn't seem appropriate. He did however provide us with some extra uplighting that we appreciated. I would recommend Ray the DJ as a company, the portal and online billing was nice and they were very responsive to emails, but perhaps not Jeremy as a DJ!
