Jeremy, the owner of Red Letter DJ's, has refused to pay me for work that I have completed. On top of that, I have had to fight every step of the way to receive payment for previous completed work. Working with Jeremy is a miserable experience. I know of multiple occasions where... Read More he has lied to his customers and his employees (sorry, I mean contractors). He also owes multiple of his employees/contractors money and yet is refusing to pay them. I guarantee he will respond to this review saying I was consistently late on deadlines but these issues lay on his end as he was horrible at responding to any of my attempts of communication. For one of the weddings I had contacted him dozens of times in order to get music for the video. At this point the video was completed. I only needed the music from him. It took him over two months to respond to any of my text messages, phone calls, and emails. A couple of his clients never even received their videos. The only reason I know this is that I contacted them after searching their names on Facebook. After speaking with both clients, I found out that they only received partial or none of what they had paid for and that Jeremy had been ignoring their efforts to contact him. Luckily, I still had their videos and was able to give it to them. I highly advise anyone from working for or hiring Jeremy for any work. He is great at twisting words and giving you a false sense of security, but do not believe him. All lies.

Thank you Jeremy for making our day so special!!

After years of attending weddings I know how important a DJ's roll can be . So when it came time to plan my own wedding I searched for endless hours online , asked all my friends and family and made a lot of phone calls. Within the first few minutes of talking to Jeremy Mancini... Read More owner of Red Letter DJs I knew I found the one I was looking for. As all couples planning their weddings can understand the stress levels involved in the planning process is very intense . Jeremy instantly put all my nerves at ease. I had literally no idea what I was doing and he took the time to help me plan a time line that worked for me. He also told me once he got to the wedding he would make sure that it all happens as planned. And to help keep everything as close to the time line as possible. When it came to song selection his website could not have been any easier to use . I was able to choose the songs I wanted for all the dances, flower/garter toss and the introduction . Red Letter DJs also provided all the music for my ceremony and my appetizer hour . You can also fill out all forms to provide all the wedding party information and manage payments on the website as well. There is even a countdown clock that lets you know how long you have until you need to have everything finalized. I was contacted again a few days before this date to see if I had any last minute questions. During the wedding I had several guest ask me how I found such a great DJ . I even had one of the other vendors comment on how easy he was to work with . He communicated well with the the other vendors and let us know when it was time for the introductions to the reception took a few minutes behind the scenes to explain to us how he was going to do it and to make sure he had all our names pronounced correctly. He even did a last minute song change that one of the groomsmen asked if he could play (Jeremy checked with me first) . So if you are looking for a great sounding and professional DJ that will give you exactly what your looking for. I can not recommend Jeremy Mancini of Red Letter DJs enough. From my first phone conversation to the last dance of my wedding night he helped make our wedding day perfect. Brett & Kathy Maxwell 09/18/16

Read More music at the reception. I heard about Red Letter DJs through friends, and now I agree - having a good DJ really did make our whole wedding effortless and fun! We worked with Jeremy, and he helped provide the music for both our ceremony and reception. He had not worked with our venue before – which had a reputation for a bad sound system – but he brought his own equipment and the ceremony music was perfect and exactly what we wanted. As a bonus, the songs transitioned flawlessly between songs (fading in/out). Also, I’m not sure how he handled this by himself, but he was set up for our reception immediately after our ceremony. (We didn’t have the traditional break between our ceremony and reception, which were in two different buildings.) Now the reception - this is where the real miracle happened and why I wholeheartedly recommend Red Letter DJs. I know I’m a little biased since it was my own wedding, but the reception was a blast. I’ve been to several weddings where maybe only 1/3 of the attendees dance. My husband and I have a lot of introverted friends that we have NEVER seen dance, but Jeremy was able to get everyone on the dance floor. Literally, EVERYONE - whether it was 5 year olds or 50 year olds, everyone was dancing. Jeremy was able to judge the mood and how everyone responded to the song, picked upcoming songs that transitioned well and kept everyone dancing, and it never once reached a plateau where people got bored of the music. The fact that he was able to pick songs to fit different generations and musical tastes while still keeping everyone moving is mind-blowing to me. Everyone I talked to at the wedding was impressed with Jeremy as a DJ and emcee (and they were also impressed he was so energetic and dancing as well!). You won’t regret having Red Letter DJs at your wedding!
