Feedback from a M(o)by D1sc wedding
Posted 30 March 2006 - 10:21 AM
I WAS VERY WRONG!
The DJ had 'been with them for a long time' turns out this was 6 mths or maybe even a year - that doesn't qualify as a long time to me! Played music that wasn't on the 8 CD's I gave them or on the additional 60 song's from their own song list after promising me that that would never happen. Did not follow written instructons though they were clearly in front of him the whole time which resulted in our parent dance being stuffed up at the end. There was no gap in between any of the 3 formal dances for the MC to announce the song and to get the relevant people on the dance floor. He played a type of music again even though I told him not to and he had to constantly be told to turn up the music.
He had no concept of what tracks should follow each other, so it got to the point where I had to physically stop dancing and go over to tell him to play this then this then this. I was told that the songs would be mixed not a single song was.
We were so upset and disgusted as we were told that he was prefect for us etc etc etc that we didn't pay him. He went up to my mother, refused to give back our CDs and told her to tell us not to call his supervisor. I spoke to him the day after we got back from our honeymoon and was told that I expected too much - I'm sorry but I apparantly booked a 'professional' DJ that's not what I received. So after him yelling at me then being as quiet as a mouse when my husband got on the phone I cop a call from the manager who I had spoken to previously and was basically told that the DJ we had had never received bad feedback before (maybe because he tells people not to call the manager???!) so she believes him that he did a good job and is threatening to sue if we don't pay. Charming! I said that why should we pay when we paid for a professional DJ and we got a novice to which she laughed and said well you have not paid. So basically they want to see a copy of our wedding DVD to back up our claims even though we got told by all our guests the whole night, fantastic wedding, food, pity about the sh!t DJ.
So to all you B2b's I trusted them and got shafted and now I can never get that night back. If I had my time over I would never have booked them and I also would have heard how they actually DJ.

So what are you going to do? I wouldn't pay them either to be honest!

You shouldn't have to worry about music! You should just enjoy the night!
Our DJ did our engagement party, he's doing mine and all of my friends (4) 21st's, and he's doing my wedding. If any Melb. brides want his details, PM me.
I hope you resolve it soon!

Try the line of "i am doing you a favour you need to see how your staff perform on the night" and what would happen if you didn't have a wedding video

Why the hell are they in the SA locality guides under DJ's on wedding websites when they aren't even located in Adelaide???
In the end I ended up having a Jazz trio because I didn't want to risk it.
If anyone requires a great DJ in Queensland I can highly recommend one located in between Brisbane and the Gold Coast so they could do both areas

I guess with companies that hire out DJs, you get what they line up for you, and there isn't much you can do to suss them out really, unless if you can get a rec for one of their great ones and insist on booking them.

Maybe i should look into some others just in case

Maybe you should ask to see them DJ before hand so you know what you are getting because on the night it's too late.
I know how it felt to have all my guests come up to me and say he's crap all night and then have to run up to him all night telling him what to do when it was supposed to be my night to enjoy all the hard work!
My only hope now is that the videographer can dub over the parent dance song so on the video it just fades out and not just stops - I paid a lot of money for the DVD and don't want to sit there for the next however many years cringing when seeing and hearing that.
