Booking with Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment was the easiest part of our wedding planning process. Our DJ, Andrew Round, was easy to reach, flexible about meeting times, laid back, yet professional. After our initial meeting, I had total confidence that he would do an... Read More amazing job. My husband, Nick, and I decided to go with the Jazz Trio for cocktail hour and dinner, then DJ after dinner. The day of our wedding, Andrew was amazing. He had a presence that could only be described as classy. He looked as good as the wedding party in his tux! He had every detail taken care of; it was clear he knew what he was doing and he was so familiar with the venue and staff that everything was coordinated seamlessly. Every once in a while, he would check in with us to let us know what was coming up next and gave us time to finish up our mingling before we were needed to cut the cake or come up for our first dance, etc. He did so in a relaxed and well-paced manner. Never did it feel like things were dragging along or rushed. The trio was WONDERFUL. I could have listened to them all night! Everyone commented on what a nice touch it brought to the after-ceremony ambiance. They played beautifully and it was perfect for cocktails and dinner. Not too soft, not too harsh. Got people's attention but didn't overpower conversations at the tables. Andrew did a FABULOUS job playing fun music, appealing to different ages and genres. He really kept things lively. Nick and I had established a "No Play" list. No chicken dance, no Macarena, no Grease, etc. We also had a couple artists that we asked not be played. He respected our wishes and did so respectfully! Weeks after our weeding, we were out with friends. When a friend told us that he kept asking our DJ to play (banned artist), Andrew respectfully declined and explained our preferences in a way that was polite but firm, and with a smile. Rather than getting annoyed by his declined request, our friend was impressed with the way Andrew handled the situation. Enough so, that he wanted to make sure that he mentioned it to us! DO NOT GAMBLE WITH ANYONE ELSE in GR; Rick Reuther's does a great job and you will not be disappointed. Ask for Andrew - he's the consummate professional!

AMAZING! Stop looking and book them now!

We were so happy we chose Music Host Entertainment for our wedding!! We worked with Andrew Rounds for our wedding a few weeks ago and had nothing but a positive experience from start to finish. I initially set things up through Rick Reuther and he was so helpful and... Read More accommodating linking us up with our DJ. Several weeks before our wedding, my husband and I met with Andrew and he was very professional and organized asking us about song requests, do not play requests, and pronunciation of our parents and bridal party. He had a whole list of questions that we hadn't even thought about and it was nice talking through them together ahead of time. We had a great time and felt very comfortable with one another at the end of this meeting. He told us we could message him at any point before the wedding to add requests or if we had any questions/concerns. The day of our wedding, Andrew showed up early to set up and was dressed professionally in a tuxedo. He did an amazing job acting as both MC and DJ! He kept things running on time and did a great job announcing cake cuttings, speeches, first dances, guest book etc. I had a special dance planned for the groom and he kept this quiet until it was time to perform. He moved from one song to the next seamlessly. From the moment the dance floor opened, it was packed. His music selection was absolutely perfect and he managed to get our requests (and our guests) in throughout the night! I have been to a lot of weddings (and also been in a lot), and I have never seen a packed dance floor at the end of the night until our own. Andrew announced and played the last song and afterwards everyone started chanting for multiple encores because he did such an amazing job! I truly cannot say enough about Andrew and Rick Reuther's. They were so professional and fun to work with. They were very reasonably priced as well. I would 100% work with them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for professional DJ or music services.

We had the trio and the DJ Kurt for our wedding. Both were very professional and they made the day so easy and stress free. Was one less detail to worry about! The DJ had people out on the dance floor the entire night and the dance floor was never empty!!! They also gave us a...

Loved booking with them and would highly recommend to anyone!

We highly recommend David White. David set a great atmosphere for our event and kept folks on the dance floor all night. He was excellent at reading the crowd and keeping the party going. He did not make it about himself and was a dignified and engaging host. He contributed... Read More so much to the overall enjoyment of our night, and was amazing to work with leading up to the event. He takes a very thoughtful approach to his job, and made a bunch of really helpful suggestions for which songs we might want to use for different portions of the evening.

2 words: Book them! David White was our dj and he did a fantastic job helping us plan and playing our playlist that we had delivered to him. While he was great, the truly magical part was booking the jazz band trio! Wow, they were great and everyone was raving about them! Very... Read More reasonably priced as well. Tom played the piano for the ceremony as well - and it couldn't have been more perfect. You won't have any regrets booking with these folks.

So I'm creating an account here just to say that you must, must, choose MusicHost for your wedding and ask for David White. David was beyond amazing. We were having and Iranian/American wedding, with the iranian guests (half of the attendees) traveling in from VA, and my... Read More biggest concern was creating a fun, lively environment for everyone. Some people suggested that I bring in an Iranian DJ from DC, but I thought I'd check out Rick's team. I think I spent more in-person and phone time with David than anyone else associated with the wedding, and his professionalism and excitement turned the evening into a memorable event for everyone. He seemlessly transitioned between the genres that several of the Iranian guests told me (and him) that he mixed the Iranian music better than at any wedding they'd been to. So you're probably not throwing an Iranian/American wedding. But the professionalism and dedication to pull that off first time shows that David can handle anything. People loved him so much they invited him back to an out-of-town reception in VA! Book MusicHost. Ask for David. Have fun.

I could not have asked for a better DJ! Andrew was wonderful, not only for the reception but his constant communication the months/weeks leading up to the big day. I also appreciated how quickly Rick called me after I initially inquired on their services. He is very detail... Read More oriented and a pleasure to work with. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat!!!


Slow start but got better

Reviewed on 12/04/2015 Leslie P

I was a little disappointed at the beginning of our reception (after the first dance/ daddy daughter and mother son dances). Our DJ started to play another slow song... To me it got the night off to a slow start. No one wanted to dance after watching the traditional dances and... Read More another slow song starts. Then the music picked up and it was ok. Our DJ then proceeded to play all the group dances (the wobble, cha cha slide, cupid shuffle) all in a row. By the 3rd one people were leaving the dance floor. We did hear all the songs we wanted to hear and he kept to our "do not play list". I just think the flow of the night could have been a little better. Overall it turned out well.

ICING ON THE CAKE Rick Reuther was recommended to me by my photographer. Rick returned my call the same day. We meet later that week and I booked him (the Trio and DJ) right then and there. One of the best decisions I made! Rick/Joel (the DJ) not only helped with putting... Read More the evening together but with the layout of the venue; since we used a private venue. The day of our wedding was perfect and it would not have been the same without the trio & Joel. The guests LOVED the live music and Joel made every transition (ceremony to cocktail hour to reception) seamless. In fact, our caterer was an HOUR late with the food and thanks to The Trio and Joel our guests never knew! I cannot thank Rick and Joel enough for making our special day so amazing. I recommend them to everyone I know. One of the best decisions I made! VanDrie/Cidanli

We wanted a classic, vintage theme for our wedding, and Rick for the bill wonderfully. We had the live jazz trio during our cocktail hour which went very well to have that special touch of entertainment while the guests waited for us to return from pictures. He serenaded during... Read More the dinner and was wonderful. They also were able to play the ceremony music and were very easy to work with and super accommodating. The DJ was fun and played a great mix the entire night and honored all our wishes! They are higher end, but they wear tuxes and coordinate with the venue throughout the wedding planning, I think they are worth the price tag.

Simply Elegant! Rick as part of the Tom Hagen Trio was the highlight of our reception. Rick was responsive and easy to work with. He was able to put together a lovely quartet that played Sinatra style music for our outdoor wedding. They sounded amazing! Our guests are still...

Music Host Entertainment knows what they're doing! Rick handled all the booking and payments and was quick to reply to all my emails and phone calls. He was very professional and checked in a few times to make sure I was happy with the assigned DJ and the professionalism he... Read More had. DJ Joel was our hired DJ and I would highly recommend requesting him. I live in Chicago and he was very flexible in times available to meet while I was visiting the SW Michigan area. He made it very well known that he was there for me. We hired him so he was working for us and he told us that many times over. He genuinely wanted to get to know me and my fiancé personally so he could get a good feel for the type of people we were and the type of feel we wanted at our wedding reception.

We would not hesitate to recommend Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment to anyone and everyone! Rick was very helpful in answering all our initial questions and organizing the perfect music plans for our wedding. He set up a live jazz trio to play during our cocktail hour... Read More and dinner, who were wonderful and even surprised us by playing a song with vocals by my cousin! We had a piano but no pianist for our ceremony, so Rick arranged for the pianist from the trio, Tom Hagan, played for our ceremony. Tom was great and did not hesitate to take a few hours out of his Friday to join us for the rehearsal. He helped pick out the perfect music for our ceremony and was familiar with all of the songs I requested. He accompanied my cousin for a song during the ceremony and she said he was wonderful to work with on that also! Our DJ for the night and the after-dinner dancing music was Andrew. Andrew was fantastic and such a pleasure to work with! He had us fill out a questionnaire and met with us in person a couple weeks before the wedding to make sure that he had a clear understanding of everything we wanted from the reception. The day of the wedding, he did an amazing job of making everything so easy for us - he made everything run so smoothly, ensured that everything ran on schedule, and reminded our guests of all of the happenings during the night - guest book, photo booth, late-night snack. When one of the guests asked if he could make an un-scheduled toast, Andrew checked with us first to make sure that there were no unwelcome surprises! I can't say enough good things about Music Host Entertainment. On a day when things need to run smoothly and you need help to make that happen, this company really rose to the occasion and beyond! Thanks Rick!!
