YES!!!! Rob Alberti was a great choice for us from the beginning. We used him and his team for our DJ, uplighting, and photobooth. From the beginning, Rob emails you back quickly and is willing to work with you on exactly what you envision for your perfect day. He has an... Read More online database of music where you can come up with your music selections. I had so much fun working on that leading up to the wedding. We had a big wedding party (10 bridesmaids, 10 groomsmen), each with their own entrance song and Rob nailed it perfectly! Each pair got to enter and have a “spotlight” moment. We even had custom songs for our bride/groom and mother/son dance and he was great playing those. Our uplighting was beautiful at the wedding! The photobooth was a huge hit! The props were great and the guest book is amazing! Our family and friends all got to write fun notes to us next to their picture. On top of all of the ease of planning with Rob and the day of events, he is kind enough to mail you a USB with recordings of your ceremony and toasts after the big day. My husband and I loved listening and reliving the special moments. I highly recommend Rob Alberti!!!!

We had Tony Simmons DJ our wedding and he was absolutely fantastic!! We didn't meet him in person before booking him, but he did arrange a phone call where he discussed all the relevant information- what we should look for in a DJ, what his style is as a DJ, what we can expect... Read More from Rob Alberti as a company, etc. He was extremely thorough and helpful in answering all our questions, and gave great advise throughout the process. Rob Alberti was very flexible with our requests and responded quickly to any emails. I highly highly recommend them! On our wedding day, Tony could not have been more amazing! He let us pick specific songs we wanted but was also able to basically do the cocktail hour and reception music with little to no guidance from us (we just gave vague genres we wanted). His DJing was so great that people were actually dancing even before the salad was plated and the dancing didn't end until the very last song. And actually, our guests were having such a great time they begged for another last song (after our official last one) which Tony very kindly obliged them in, much to their delight! His assistant was also fantastic- asked questions when needed and helped the day go smoothly. Tony was extremely flexible before and during the day, and I really can't emphasize this enough. For example, he spent a lot of time creating a father/daughter dance mashup with several songs we picked, and then my father and I decided not to do it because our guests were having such a great time dancing already. I had even offered to pay for his additional work of making the mix but Tony declined, showing again how accommodating and kind he was. Also- at the very last second our wedding party decided to change the song playing during their introduction to the reception! Tony happily did so, but only after checking with me that it was ok, and seeing their surprise dance was a highlight of our wedding. Again- highly recommend this company and Tony in particular!!

If my wedding guests were the ones to review this DJ company, they would have given them 5 stars, I would give them 3. The guests loved DJ Jim and were dancing for a good part of the night. He kept them engaged and kept the party going. The company was also easy to work with... Read More from a long-distance (we were planning from California), and we were able to keep all conversations to email and phone conversations. DJ Jim seemed very knowledgable and experienced and helped us put together a great experience. Our only complaint is that we feel like some of our requests were not honored. We had to remind Jim to do the anniversary dance that he knew we wanted to do (I was supposed to give my bouquet to the couple who was married the longest, but by the time we reminded him about the dance, all of the older couples had left, so it was a little more pointless. We also spent a lot of time creating a playlist of must-play songs (we kept it to the minimum that he suggested), but many of them were not played, while he played some that we didn't have on our list at all, nor did we like. Jim came up to me at one point and told me that there were only 20 minutes left and to let him know if there were any songs that he hadn't played yet that we wanted played. At that point, there were a number of songs I could think of that he hadn't played yet, and 20 minutes was not enough time to play them all (I had no idea there were only 20 minutes left in the night), so I just told him to make sure he played songs from our list for the rest of the night. We were disappointed that we didn't have a lot of the songs we spent time picking did not get played. Additionally, the mike that the dj provided for the ceremony did not work when my mother in law was giving her speech. I'm not sure what happened, but they fixed it after and it worked for my mother. The last minor issue was that we spent a long time practicing our first dance and told the DJ that we had practiced our first dance, so we figured he would get that we had an entrance planned. He didn't tell us that he was planning on starting our first dance music right after our party and we entered the reception hall. We had to have him stop the music so that we could enter from where we were supposed to and be prepared to start our dance. I wish he told us that he was going to start the song without any warning, and then we would have told him that we needed to be in a certain spot. For how prepared and knowledgeable Jim seemed, we figured we wouldn't have the problems we had with forgetting a part of our reception and not playing the songs that were important to us. As I said earlier though, the guests had an amazing time and we mostly did too, these were our only complaints about the whole wedding and the issues were only related to the DJ.

We planned to do a 10:30 glow stick send off, instead we had to do a staged send off and my photographer took care of it with him, he told me not to worry about a thing.

A lot of people don't realize it, but your DJ is one of the most important vendors. They act as your MC, and you trust them to provide the soundtrack to the most important day of your life. We were so fortunate to have gone through Rob Alberti's DJ service. The DJ assigned to... Read More our wedding was Jim Aldrige and he was amazing. He contacted us several months in advance to just do an initial meeting with us via skype so we could put a face to the name. Because it was a same-sex wedding, and due to our very unique family arrangement, our service was a bit more complicated and very "non-traditional." Jim helped us work through those very complex arrangements, was extremely gracious with his time and made sure everyone felt ownership over the event in appropriate levels. He actually helped us set up the order of ceremony and pointed out things that we hadn't even thought of in our planning process. As a young couple, we love a lot of more modern music but we didn't want any of our guests to feel left out: Jim had the perfect solution. If you've never heard of the Vitamin String Quartet, make sure to ask your DJ! They play popular music in a traditional sound. So young people get to hear songs they hear on the radio, and older relatives get the ambiance of a live orchestra and don't know the difference. All of our friends immediately recognized Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" even though it sounded like a piece written by a classic composer. My aunt said she was thrilled we "went with tradition" - she'll never know :) Since our ceremony was outdoors, we were provided with wireless microphones on both my husband and I's tuxedo's so everyone could hear us on the outdoor sound system Jim brought with him. It was CRYSTAL CLEAR. No audio pops or hissing or anything like that. We did have one hiccup during our first dance, but even that was so minor. Our friend was was our officiant is also a recording artist and he performed a live version of a song he wrote for us as the first dance song. Unfortunately the CD he provided the DJ for background music started to glitch, but Jim realized how beautiful his voice was and quickly just cut the music completely and it turned into an amazing acapella performance. He even started the slow clap to keep the beat! Once the reception got going, Jim acted as MC and he did a great job. The event went by with great pacing and there were no dull moments or prolonged silences. We also contracted with Rob Alberti for a photo booth - 1000000% glad we did this, as it was the highlight of the night. They brought three chests full of amazing props. Each person in the photo got a personal copy of the photo strip., we got a copy for our memory book (which ended up becoming a second guest book), and we got an electronic copy on a flash drive. There was a dedicated staff member at the photo booth all night to ensure everything worked the way it was supposed to. We even got a copy of the audio from the key moments of the wedding reception (First dance, cake cutting, toasts etc) that we will cherish forever. The music was exactly what we wanted and we had a great time.

In all honesty, Rob was the best wedding DJ I've ever seen or had. From the wedding ceremony (which was outside in a park), to the intros at the reception, to nailing the music at the reception it was non-stop dancing. He played a perfect mix of hip-hop, country, classic rock... Read More and little bit of everything else we had discussed with him prior. It was so good, we actually had people dancing even before we finished the "ceremonial" parts of the reception (our friends are 20-30s). He worked quickly on the fly, helping us have a hilarious dance off, playing a fitting song after a requested song got thrown in, etc. While Rob is affordable overall, we also know he is on the higher end of the spectrum. With that said, a DJ is not the place to skimp out on. He made our wedding a huge hit and if you can have people dancing from 8:30-11:30 non-stop, it's a no brainer! P.S. His equipment all works perfectly, including his wireless mics and speakers, which seems small but if you've been to weddings where they crackle and hiss or come in and out, you'll know important it is, especially outdoors.
