Jeremy CullenReviewed on 11/08/2015 Danielle V
Jeremy was awesome! He created a mashup song for my dad and I to dance to and it was perfect. He help make the transitions smoother from ceremony to dinner to dancing, because the venue did not really do anything regarding transitions. Jeremy didn't miss a beat. Always kept me informed and was great with communication. I give Jeremy from Ray the DJ my highest recommendation!!!
Jeremy was amazing!Reviewed on 3/31/2014 Chelsey S
When we first met Jeremy we had already met with several other DJ companies and weren't able to find the right one for us. The second we started talking to Jeremy we knew he was the one for us! He was knowledgeable, funny, and an all around great guy! He made our night everything we imagined and so much more. Our guest could not say enough great things about him!
Listens to what you wantReviewed on 2/08/2014 bridget y
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 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.
We had a great experience with DJ Marcus for our February 2017 wedding. He was very attentive and organized and checked in every few months starting early on. He was willing to work with me to create a unique first dance song and was willing to play our less traditional wedding playlist. He followed our script and was professional, and sent us a congratulations email immediately after the wedding. I'd definitely recommend Marcus!
This review is specifically for Marcus the DJ, not the rest of the company. For our wedding, unfortunately Marcus really messed up. I thought I would be able to drop it, but I still think about it and it makes me sad. To start out with, the week of the wedding Marcus went over all the details with me. At the time of the phone call, the entire thing was correct (including names, etc). The night of the wedding, I don't know if he downloaded a previously revised version of my information, but he read the entire bridal party out of order, and forgot 4 people from our line. Everyone that walked out got called the wrong names. Not a big deal to the bridal party, but looked bad for the people that knew what was happening. 2nd issue I had that night, was he switched the first dance with my husband with the anniversary song, and played a horribly skewed version of it. The song sounded like it was being played through a trombone. We didn't get to dance to our favorite song, which really upset me. 3rd thing that happened, we were extremely specific about the dinner music. We stated we wanted rat-pack themed music (Buble, Sinatra, etc) and he played everything BUT Rat Pack themed music. 4th thing that happened, I appreciated that he tried to make up for the fact that he didn't read the bridal party incorrectly, but he then interrupted the music scene and only re-announced two of the people. It was embarrassing, especially after he asked if he could and we simply stated it wasn't a big deal and to not do it. At that point, it was kinda hard to mess up anything else, as he only had to play music off of our playlist, which he did fine. I was extremely disappointed in the service we received, especially since I haven't been able to drop the fact that we weren't able to dance to our favorite song together. This may not be a big deal for some, but it was for me. The horror stories you hear about terrible DJ's, I didn't think would happen to me due to the amazing reviews with this DJ group, but I was sorely mistaken. One of my bridal party members uses Ray the DJ through their company, and now dropped their services due to these incidents. She didn't know half of the issues that happened, but saw the unprofessionalism in DJ Marcus. He was looking down and not very active with the crowd. I would recommend Ray himself, or any of the other DJ's. I still see good reviews for them, just not DJ Marcus.
We used Ray the DJ for our ceremony music, and cocktail hour and reception music. Marcus was our DJ and he made sure that everyone was entertained. I've honestly never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding before! Marcus was very professional and we very much enjoyed working with him.
Our venue required us to pick one of two DJs, one of them being Ray the DJ. After emailing with an employee about cost and what style of music we were looking for, we were paired with Parker. We met with him and instantly had a great feeling about him. He responded to my emails with any questions and showed up early to set up. The portal was easy to use for selecting what music we wanted/didn't want played. He was energetic but not cheesy since we did not want any activities, instead we (ourselves and guests) wanted to dance and sing more than anything. Our guests are still talking about the music and how much fun our wedding was. I would use Ray the DJ and hire Parker again in a heart beat!!!
We had Teffanie and she was fantastic. She entertained everyone, had amazing games, wonderful timing, and I had so many people compliment me on her alone! She was the life of the party!
Fun! Fun! Fun! Very helpful, kept everything moving, had a great personality and set the tone for the evening.
Marcus was absoloutely amazing! He DJ'd our wedding on May 13th 2017 and we were so, so impressed with his professionalism and he did such an awesome job helping us MC our wedding! He played great music and played every single one of our requested songs!!! My husband and I were so pleased with Marcus and the way that he kept our wedding guests entertained with all levels of music! Our wedding was at Ocotillo Golf Resort and we even had staff comment at how "great" our DJ was and that they would recommend him to others as well! Great job Ray the DJ! You guys exceeded our expectations!
My wife and I got married last August and I've been meaning to rave about this and company and especially our DJ, Marcus. I can not tell you how many people came up to us to comment on how good he was. He mixed in the music wonderfully, which kept the party going all night. It must say something that not writing a review had been weighing on me that I felt compelled to do it 8 months later. A side note, the website was easy to navigate through all of the planning steps and our experience was that they are nothing but professionals. Top Notch!
We had Gustavo at our wedding and he was perfect! We needed someone that could blend a variety of music especially with Mexican music and he did an incredible job. He was great at keeping the party going without interrupting with too much talking. Breanna was always prompt with a response and made everything so easy! Would definitely recommend them :)
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. We had our guests make song requests when they sent in their RSVPs and Ray helped us turn that into a playlist to get everyone on the dance floor. We had people dancing from the very start of the night to the end. It was perfect and Ray was great!
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 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 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!
Working with Marcus has been great. My husband and I were so pleased with Marcus. He did and amazing job. Once we met him, we knew he was the one we wanted to use. He was so professional and knew exactly what we wanted. His attention to detail was second to none. We would highly recommend Marcus to everyone. Thank you Marcus. You were exceptional and loved the "Italian" reference to our reception. Superb. :)
Marcus worked our wedding and was great! He called us twice before our wedding, to discuss song choices, timing specifics, and names. He was there very early to set up and make sure he was comfortable with our venue. His songs choices were excellent, he was on the microphone just enough to introduce those giving toasts, and that was it. He also gave us the courtesy of letting us know where we were in our schedule for the night, and if, for example, the time to cut cake had passed, he asked us when we would like to do it. He was great, and absolutely added to the fun atmosphere of our wedding.
Teffanie was UNREAL. I had requests from my guests after the wedding for her playlist because she did such a good job keeping everyone on the dance floor. She is professional and keeps the night rolling with cues on the microphone. I would recommend her to anyone!
Marcus was absolutely wonderful! He was so great to work with from the very first meeting - he called to check in a couple times and assisted us with any questions we had. He was patient and let us make our wedding and playlist our own while using his DJ expertise to play the perfect mix and make our party super fun!! He had an awesome attitude and accepted requests with a smile and even extended our time on the night of! Thanks so much Marcus!!!!
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. We had that with Ray the DJ. We were lucky enough to have Ray personally, but I'm sure his other DJ's are as good too! He organized a fun entrance for the bridal party, he played beautiful music in the background during dinner and he had everyone dancing later. The dance floor was packed all night long! We had friends say it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to. Thank you to Ray for making this day so memorable!
Great DJ, have been to three weddings where he DJd and can't wait to work with him for our wedding
Tony from Ray the DJ was the DJ selected for our wedding. We had quite a bit going on before the wedding including selling our house and moving, changing jobs, gone the week prior for a business, therefore, had waited until the last minute to upload our songs to your website. Literally, we were at the cutoff time uploading our requests. I spoke with Tony the week of the wedding. I apologized for the lateness on our side getting song choices to him. He was nothing but kind and considerate. He answered all my questions and even provided additional song choices to complete our list. 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. He went with the flow when we had additional changes to the wedding party and was very accommodating. Everything was perfect! Choose Tony to be your DJ. We couldn't have asked for anyone or anything better!! I would definitely recommend him or request him if the need arises to have DJ services at a future event. Leah S., 09/03/16 wedding
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. We wanted to do a bridal party dance that was to cut into our first dance and was a mix of 4 songs. We only had to tell him the names of the songs and how long we wanted each one played. 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. At the end I had numerous friends and family members tell me that he was the best wedding DJ they had ever seen. You can't go wrong with him as your DJ.
We HIGHLY recommend Ray the DJ! Robert was the DJ who worked with us, and he kept us all dancing! He was patient with us and went above and beyond to play the songs we requested. Ray the DJ is a great choice and we would recommend them for any wedding!
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 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!
