Johnny and his co worker were awesome!!! We took advantage of both his DJing services and photo booth rental for our wedding. The photo booth was a huge hit, we used the photo strip print outs for our "guestbook" and everyone had so much fun with it. Johnny was right on schedule... Read More with the music and was super flexible. We ended up having pretty cold weather so i mentioned we may need to move things inside for the reception. I was obviously super busy but when he saw people migrating inside because of the weather he moved his station inside too. It was really nice to not have to worry about reminding him of the schedule or ask him to do anything. Would book again x 100. Thanks again!!!


Great wedding DJ!

I planned my CO wedding from out of state and spent a lot of time looking for a quality DJ at an affordable price. Rock Candy DJs was definitely one of the most affordable options, which made me a bit hesitant about how good they would be, but they had some good reviews online... Read More so we decided to go for it. I assure you, we were not disappointed. Rock Candy DJs is an exceptional value for the quality of DJs you receive. Our wedding DJ was Donnie, and he was awesome! He worked with us using their very easy online form ahead of time to make sure we had everything squared away. He was able to find us any songs that weren't in their database and got everything right on our wedding day. As for dance music, we put in a few requests but mostly asked him to play whatever the guests would dance to, and that he did! Our guests were dancing from the minute the music started until the very last song. He took requests, played music from across genres, and showed everyone a great time. We got so many compliments about how great our DJ was, and our parents even decided to tip Donnie extra at the end of the night because he'd done such a great job. Our wedding ceremony got moved up 45 minutes due to weather, and Donnie was on it! He was ready well ahead of time with the ceremony music and even made it up to the reception site to get the music started early. I highly recommend Rock Candy DJs if you are looking for an affordable DJ who will do an outstanding job!

We met with Johnny at Rock Candy over Skype several months prior to our wedding. Since we were planning from across the country, we didn’t meet him in person until we got to our reception site after our ceremony. His planning website was very user-friendly, and every song that... Read More my bride and I thought to play at our reception was listed on the site, with links to hear each song. The site had lists for songs we definitely wanted played, songs we definitely DIDN’T want played and songs that we would like played if time permitted. We were also able to choose songs for our first dance, cake cutting, wedding party intro, father/daughter dances etc, right on the site. Though we didn’t need him to DJ the ceremony, there were options for choosing all the songs for the important moments in the ceremony as well. We even emailed him a last-minute request for the wedding party intro a few days prior to the wedding, and he found the song we wanted and had it cued up and ready. I was somewhat worried that a very outgoing DJ would make my introverted family uncomfortable. I needn’t have been concerned. When it was time to get our guests up and moving, Johnny managed to do it in a way that was fun and energetic, without being pushy or inappropriate. Once he opened the dance floor, it was never empty. He was the perfect MC; when he needed to get peoples’ attention, he did, when he needed to be invisible, he was. Though we didn’t get a chance to rehearse any of the songs, a quick nod from me during the intro and first dance was enough to tell him that it was time to cut a song short, and it felt seamless. The music was just as we hoped it would be. He managed to play about 90% of our “must play” playlist, and even refused to play a children’s song my brother-in-law requested for my nephew until he knew we were okay with it. There was only one song my bride was adamant that he not play. As a prank, I asked him to play it near the end of the night. I discreetly told all the guests to surround her and sing along loudly when the song came on. Her face when he told her it was a special request by the groom, and all our family and friends gathered around to sing, “Just a small town girl…” Priceless. Bottom line, if I had to choose a DJ for our wedding again, I wouldn’t consider anyone but Johnny. When we started looking for a DJ, I told my bride that the only thing I really wanted was someone who would make our reception a fun party. Johnny understood exactly what we needed, and delivered. He even laughed at our lame jokes. He was fun, but professional.


Affordable DJ Service

I had to plan all of my wedding on my own from San Diego while my fiancé was deployed. Rockcandy was affordable and their online planning service worked great for us since we couldn't meet with the DJ face to face. There was one instance where I couldn't get in touch with the... Read More DJ, but they contacted me as soon as they got my messages and everything else went off without a hitch. The DJ was even the first vendor at the venue when I did a walkthrough with all the vendors. They adjusted things for us when we decided about a month or so out that we wanted to use them for the ceremony too. The DJ even accepted the dance song for me and my father the day of the wedding as he was setting up from my flash drive. We had a very small wedding and all the guys left to smoke cigars at one point which I'm sure was hard for the DJ to get the few remaining people out on the dance floor. But he managed to keep the music and the energy up. He even was able to work in the song I wanted to dance with my mother on the fly. In the end, I would recommend them to anyone looking for DJ service. If you are in the Denver, CO area, it will be much easier for you to work with them too.

Jeff and Johnny were phenomenal to work with the entire wedding planning process. We first met with Jeff, who was fun, upbeat and you knew right away he KNEW what needed to happen to make our wedding a success. They truly love what they do! We booked with RockCandy right away.... Read More Closer to the event we met our actual DJ, Johnny and I couldn't have been happier. The week prior he made sure we had everything we needed (photobooth, slideshow, grand entrance music which we made ourselves,etc) and I knew our event was going to go off without any problems. The music during the ceremony was perfectly played even when we had 5-6 different songs we wanted played at very specific times, the grand entrance was awesome and he made sure the entire night ran smooth. Everyone danced the night away! The dance floor was never empty once which is exactly what we hoped for. He went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and I would recommend them to any bride to be who wants to know they dont have to worry about this part of their wedding !


Jeff was fantastic!

Reviewed on 2/08/2014 Meghan H

My husband and I met up with Jeff a couple months before our wedding. He sat us down and went through everything about the day of our wedding. RockCandy has a website that you can sign into and put in what songs you want for your first dance, the bouquet toss, cake, etc. Plus... Read More you can list what types of music you want for the cocktail hour, dinner, and the dancing, along with being able to request specific songs be played or not be played. Because my husband and I were not living in Colorado in the months leading up to our wedding, it was really helpful to be able to list all that stuff from our home in Virginia. We really enjoyed working with Jeff! He was friendly, helpful, and all of our decisions were noted down and carried out. Our reception music was awesome! Our guests danced the whole night and really enjoyed themselves. I highly recommend Jeff as a DJ- he reads the crowds really well and played a wide variety of different music. Plus he has done tons of weddings, so he was really helpful in deciding what things worked at a wedding and what didn't. RockCandy uses a number of different DJs, especially in the summertime, so be sure you find out which specific DJ will be playing your wedding. Try to get Jeff if you can, because he is wonderful!

Amazing wedding DJ!

Reviewed on 9/23/2013

Rockcandy DJs (Jeff in particular) are amazing. My new husband and I had very complicated music requests, as we had many friends of ours (who are musical performers) sing with karaoke tracks throughout the night. We also had 3 different music locations for Jeff to set speakers... Read More and his equipment (outside, in the dining room, and in a downstairs ballroom), not to mention, a demanding mother of the bride and a perfectionist groom! We could not have been happier with Jeff's service. He was kind, patient, responsive, informative, and talented. There were no pauses between songs, and no point in which we had to remind Jeff of our elaborate musical plans. Going into our wedding day, Rockcandy was the one vendor whom we knew we could count on to deliver (based on the amazing customer service and helpful communications) and they surpassed our expectations. They also provided us with a great photo booth… complete with fun props and a friendly booth attendant. Not only was their service amazing, but their prices were very reasonable. We discussed prices with Jeff several months prior to our wedding and the price we discussed was the price we paid in the end. They never tried to nickel and dime us for the couple small things we added as we planned (a small guitar amp, for instance). Rockcandy has my very highest recommendation - and everyone who attended my wedding would agree!

I met with the staff of RockCandy DJ in January. The staff said the DJ's had several hours of training.

Read More weekend to ensure the best DJ's and availability and provide clients with a big play list. The Modern Package is to include a light façade and additional lighting. The up lighting, would include two colors and be placed around the room to enhance it. January 22, 2011, I called RockCandy and to lock in my wedding date of October 1, 2011. Rock Candy informed me the DJ would contact me three weeks prior to my event. September 12, 2011 (3 weeks prior to event), I e-mailed RockCandy asking when the DJ would contact me and what information to provide for up-lighting. I didn't get a response. September 14, 2011, I sent a follow-up e-mail. Still no response. September 22, 2011, I received a system-generated e-mail stating the DJ would get a hold of me three weeks prior to my event and my invoice was due 7 days prior to the event. I called RockCandy since we were within the three weeks and I had not heard from the DJ. They informed my DJ had not been decided on yet and would have him contact me as soon as he was. September 25, 2011, after several of hours of looking through the play list, I submitted my requests. The owner e-mailed me back he received it and he would pass it to the DJ. September 26, 2011, the DJ called. I asked him to arrive around 2:30 because of time restraints. He informed me he couldn't do that and would be there around 4:00. I asked about the schedule and he did not have one available. I asked what he needed for up lighting and he had no idea what I was talking about and said he would call his "boss". Later, the DJ called with the schedule, changed his arrival time to 2:30, and there was a plan in place for up lighting. Day of my wedding! We arrived at the reception to no announcement. I were looking forward to being announced. The DJ only had a table, and minimum lighting. None of the items promised with the Modern package (extra lights, and light façade) were present. The up lighting was very minimal, one only in one color, and put in random places. Now, its announcements time and he announces our best man and maid of honor incorrectly and forgets to announce the correct ones all together. These two were very important and they did not get the credit they deserved. The DJ didn't have any of the music I requested available. He was downloading the music at the reception. He did not motivate any one to dance. He said very little and what he did say was initiated by me. People told me this was the worse DJ they have seen. Toast time arrives and there are no wireless mics and he is not prepared to provide mics for the toast. The photographer had to get the mics and set them up. The maid of honor had to lean over the table because the mic did not reach. Finally, there was suppose to be a money dance for my husband and me. He never did this. This is tradition with my family and I know several people were waiting for this. Missing the money dance cost my husband and I an unknown amount of money. I have called and contacted the BBB and the company has yet to respond months later.
