We were really looking forward to our special day because of the great vibes we have been getting from Tom. Well day of... Tom showed up and Ray (our MC ) almost missed our reception. Okay.. I get it things happen.
Now let's get to the music selection. We asked for 90's (r&b, hip hop, pop), some newer hits, and some cultural music as my family is Italian and my husband was looking for a few Jewish dances. Well aside from the cultural music.. the rest was a mess.
Tom was playin 70's hits.. which is exactly what we didn't want. We had to go over to them and ask them to change the music selection multiple times. Additionally, we had some family from our of town (Texas) and they just kept referencing them and saying "Here's one of our Texas folks" it just got old real fast. I also wanted to recognize my grandparents for being the oldest couple in the room. I gave him their names in advance.. and then during the announcement he called my grandma Vivian. Her name is Mickey? I was mortified. As much as I really felt connected in the beginning of this process with Variety, I have to say they were one of our most disappointing vendors. We believe great music makes or breaks the event, so this was especially heartbreaking for us.
The one thing I will praise them on, is the musicians for the ceremony and cocktail hour were wonderful.

in person as to what they had to offer. Tom was our DJ and Ray was our MC and it was great to get to meet with your actual DJ and MC each time you met with them. My husband was adamant about only booking a duo that we had met with so we knew their personalities before hand. Booking Variety Music DJ was one of our best decisions as our dance floor was packed all night. Tom was able to keep every body dancing to the music while Ray interacted with my guests on the dance floor. The music was perfect, and we got quite a few compliments on how good it was and that the volume of music just right. Not too loud that you can't hear yourself think yet just loud enough to keep people partying.
We hired a saxophonist for during our cocktail hour, and he played beautiful, soft music. Mixing in some current tunes with the usual jazz songs.
Lastly, we had a Photo Booth at our wedding that our guests absolutely loved. There was a constant stream of guests enjoying themselves in front of the camera and utilizing all the props. It was great that the attendant made us a little guestbook with the photos taken and had our guests write us a little note. That was a great personal touch that left an impression on us.

Variety's Sinatra singer, we used him for the cocktail hour, was amazing--he was a great entertainer and my crowd (young and old loved him).
We used Variety's keyboard player for the pre-ceremony and ceremony music and he was great too....
He performed on the venue's piano pre-ceremony and brought his keyboard to play outside during the ceremony.
Variety did a great job lighting up the three room that we used. I was very happy with the way everything looked.
My only disappointment was with the MC/Dj combo. We did request that they be low key but it was almost too low key. My fiance and I agree that the party never really got revved up. Other than announcing us as we walked in, announcing the cutting of the cake and the toasts, the MC was silent. While we loved our wedding Variety Music was the only slight disappointment.

My passion for music started many years ago when I was 4, with my father playing his records in the living room every day after dinner . I would help him change the record and pick out the songs coming up next. I loved it. When I was 7 they bought a Piano, and I started playing. I played that Piano every day, and learned many songs right from the record player. So began my love of Music.
Variety Music was formed with a group of guys that share this love of music, and share that energy and excitement that it brings to every affair.....
Let us bring our enthusiasm for music to your affair.
