AMAZING DJ

My husband and I are sooo happy that we chose to go with Red Letter DJ's. Our DJ, Dan V. was an absolute delight to work with. He was amazing and had a hard crowd to work with but everyone at the wedding was very pleased with his work. I thank you Jeremy for putting Dan V. to... Read More work with us. We were very pleased with his work. I highly recommend him for anybody's wedding...


Amazing DJ service! We loved Sam!

We met Red Letter DJ's at a wedding expo last winter. Most DJ's I had looked into seemed very expensive, and even when I picked a large package, it did not include everything we wanted. However, Red Letter had a great all-inclusive package! Email communication was quick and easy... Read More the whole time and the online planner was easy to use! We had not even met our DJ Sam, but as soon as we got to the reception we knew he had everything covered for us! He was so professional, yet still fun, energetic, and an all around nice person. At every point during the night, he seemed to be doing anything possible to make sure things were going smoothly and running the way we wanted. He was interactive and kept people dancing the entire night!! I HIGHLY recommend Red Letter DJ's, specifically Sam for all your wedding needs!

We had a wonderful experience with red letter djs as our wedding music provider. To start, their website was so easy to use and everything that we requested that was not already in their data base, they were able to add in our play list. Ben was our dj for the night and he was... Read More fantastic to work with. He was on top of our schedule, played everything perfectly on cue and was very personable. Red letter djs made our day that much more special and our guests after getting on the dance floor rarely left it. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks again guys!!!

I can't say enough great things about Jeremy and Red Letter DJs as a whole. Not only did they make picking songs/other decisions for the big day super easy, I really got a sense that they were excited about being part of my event. Multiple guests told me how great they thought... Read More the music was and I had to agree -- we never had a time when there wasn't almost every guest out on the dance floor. We also had about 10 songs that we had requested to be played and Jeremy played all of them and made sure to fit them in where they sounded right. Jeremy was AMAZING at keeping the flow of the wedding going and even implemented a number of special activities we'd asked him to include in the evening. He was the perfect MC, DJ, and host! The lighting was even better than we could have imagined, the photobooth we'd booked through them was a BLAST, and we'd recommend anyone that wants to start their wedding right to go with Red Letter DJs!

I am so disappointed in this company. I really wanted to be able to give Ben and Jeremy 5 stars. We used their flipbook booth at our wedding in August of 2015, and it was absolutely great during the reception. The guests as well as my husband and I were thrilled with having... Read More them as part of our celebration. After the wedding, we were supposed to receive a DVD of the video footage from the flipbook booth (this was in our contract). My mom said that they had not been returning her calls, so I called Ben right before Christmas. He actually called me back within minutes (surprisingly), and he said that he had sent a copy of the DVD already (which was to my parents house, and they never received it). We were understanding, and he said that he would send the DVD to my address within a few days. Apparently, something had happened with the footage, and they had to send it to a company to be recovered, and that was the cause of the delay. But that in itself is no problem. The problem is that it has been nearly 6 months since the wedding. Not only have we not received the DVD, but Ben has repeatedly ignored my calls, texts, and emails. I felt like I was extrememly polite and understanding, but never have I felt so disrespected and blatantly ignored, especially by someone who is supposed to be running a business! Perhaps these guys are great DJs, as they were great during the wedding with their flipbook booth, but I would highly advise against hiring them due to their extreme lack of professional standards. I am considering filing with small claims court, as we have the contract still which explicitly states that we would receive a DVD. And honestly...if something happened and they lost the footage or something, we would have been understanding of that; I understand that mistakes and accidents happen in life. But completely ignoring someone's calls, texts, and emails without a single hint of an explanation? Not okay. I have never been more disappointed in a company before. Be advised: take your money elsewhere and hire someone who will follow-through with their contract.

We had Jeremy dj our wedding and he was fantastic. I knew I was taking a risk because I've never heard him dj before, but I really have nothing but great things to say. Jeremy was very upbeat and played great music. So great a second dance floor was started in another room bc... Read More the main dance floor was packed. He took into account his audience and played both old a new music and even some Italian music which was fun. He played songs from my request list and played guest requests too.

I would not give them one star but 0 is not an option. I was recommended to Red Letter DJs by the bridal salon where i got my dress. I was in desperate need of a videographer and Jeremy at Red Letter DJs was one of the few remaining with availability for my wedding date on... Read More August 8, 2015. We negotiated a price for just videography and i signed a contract and paid half of the amount and the other half was due closer to the wedding. As soon as i paid and signed the contract its like Jeremy went MIA. He wouldnt return any of my emails, never reached out to lock down details. Within a couple weeks of my wedding i started freaking out because he was not replying, i hadnt heard from him in months and i had no idea if he would show up the day of my wedding. 3 days before my wedding he finally replied. He always had an excuse as to why he didnt reply. We locked down details for my wedding and he referred me to one of his employees who would be shooting my wedding/reception. The videographer, CJ, showed up and everything seemed to go as planned. However, once at the reception, after our special dances with our parents and each other, CJ approached my new husband and me and asked if my husband could 'redo your dance with your mom because my camera malfunctioned and I didnt record it'. To which we said no because thats a once in a lifetime thing that you dont just stop a reception to redo. The videographer approached me again towards the end of the night as I was dancing asking for the final payment...which i was annoyed by because i wouldve preferred to pay him prior but his employer was MIA and refused to reply to set anything up. I paid him in full that night and the video was supposed to be done 4-6 weeks later. At the 6 week mark i emailed Jeremy asking on the videos whereabouts...to which he replied that he mailed it 'a couple weeks ago'. I replied saying i never received it and he replied that he had not put our apartment number on it but would resend, 'no problem'. This was back on September 14, 2015. Today is October 26, 2015 and i have still not received it and Jeremy refuses to email me back or return my calls. I have filed a report with the Better Business Bureau as well in regards to paying him for a service i did not receive. BEWARE. Definitely do NOT recommend this company. Very unprofessional.

Worst Part of Our Wedding

Reviewed on 10/08/2015 Laura N

We hired Red Letter DJs as a rec from our friends who had been married the year before. The DJ at their wedding played the best songs and kept the audience dancing. We got a $500 discount which allowed us to have 6 hours of music and uplighting. They even had this cool online... Read More tool which allowed you to request music. Our DJ was horrible from the moment he walked into the room. The uplighting looked cheesy and the "love songs" we requested consisted entirely of Kenny G, which we never asked for. He would STOP the music completely to switch songs and did not MC at all. For our regular music he did not play any requested songs. The only thing he got right was our first dance song. My husband and his mother's song had no words and the DJ fled out as soon as his time was up. This was a terrible choice and unless you know who your DJ is in advance, I WOULD NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY.

We had a Flip Book Booth at our wedding and the booth itself was fun and everyone enjoyed it.

I'm picky when it comes to music. Picky may be the wrong word…difficult. Yeah that's it. I'm difficult. I hate going to weddings and hearing the same 20 songs over and over over. It makes me angry, and then I want to leave. Seriously there are millions of songs and it's always... Read More the same freaking 20. So when it came time to select the dj for our wedding my bride to be let me make the selection (probably to save herself a headache I would create and who can blame her). We went to an expo and met Jeremy with Red Letter. He owns the company and you can tell by how much pride he puts into it and his work. We spoke at the expo and it was the next day when he gave me a phone call to see if we were interested in meeting. We set up a date and spent an hour with him going over music taste, what we wanted and just chatting. He's extremely nice and friendly while still being very professional. The value you will get is incredible. For the price of what most will charge you just for the music we got uplighting, ceremony set up, dance floor lighting and could have gotten more if we'd so desired. When we asked him why he offers SO MUCH at such a reasonable price his response was "Hey I've got all this stuff why wouldn't I want to use it?". Between that and the fact that he's not just a guy who's using this as a way to make extra cash we were sold. I didn't make it easy on him. Our song selections were stuff he had to pull off of the internet, we had to send a cut of our first dance to him since we personally cut it and I created a "Do Not Play" list that could have seriously hamstrung someone who was going through the motions. Even with all that Jeremy's response was always without fail "That's not a problem at all!", and it never was. The reception went without a hitch on his end, we got what we paid for and more, and were very very happy with everything. I'd highly suggest (and may myself again) use Red Letter for any and all dj needs.
