They have been great with us so far aswell, answering emails promptly and answering all our questions efficiantly. One of my bridesmaids used them for her wedding and they were great, thats why we decided to go with them....

what kind of requests did you girls make? Did you submit songlists for the whole night? or just for the specifics ie entrance, dance etc?

we are planning just soft romantic music played during dinner etc

and then full on party music from 8.30 onwards.

we are only requesting 3 songs for entering reception, cake cutting, and first dance. And there is nothing we DON'T want played.

I was considering making songlists for the first and second half of the reception, but wasn't sure if i would bother as we like just about everything on the list they provide.

The problem at both wedding s that I have been to where they were was just that occasionally there would be no music whatso ever playing..You would be up dancing then all of a sudden nothing..Just long lanky man standing there trying to get himself organised ohmy.gif
I cant comment whether they played the right music or not as I dont know what was chosen but there were too many gaps of nothing at all playing..

I gave him a songlist chosen from their list then an additional CD for our entrance, another for the 3 formal dances (one was cut exactly where I wanted it cut and also wrote down very clearly he would need to fade out at this time due to the song being cut) I also gave him 2 CD's of arabic music, 1 each of RnB, house, and Retro and he still played his own music after being told not too. We had in excess of 130 songs choosen yet he still played his own stuff.

They were exactly the same with me before hand, if you have seen one DJ in the past then I would ask to be allocated that one or else risk getting someone like me.

thanx girls.

I was just wondering if it was special requests that were the issues, as we don't have any. We're not providing any other music or anything so we shouldn't encounter the problem of our own music not being played.

HOWEVER the gaps may be an issue, and it sux that when special music was supplied it was left out! dry.gif

I just don't know what to do! One of my friends used to DJ with Moby DIsc and he said they were great and he recommends them. No, he can't do it for me as he doesn;t have the equipment etc. sad.gif
I guess I will just contact them again and tell them my suspicions, and what I have heard here. I guess with any company you run the risk of this happening.

If anyone else has heard of anything good OR bad regarding M/D can you pls post it here wink.gif

QUOTE (agirl @ Mar 31 2006, 08:05 AM)
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.

That is the key to having a good experience with a Moby Disc DJ.

Basically they are a booking company for self employed DJs; ie the DJs have their own music, etc.

I had a friend who worked for them and he was fantastic, had repeat bookings via word of mouth, was paid to travel up to four hours each way for a gig, etc. Thing is, no matter how good Kane was, there's no accounting for the next DJ! wink.gif

I went to my BIL's wedding last night, and when i got to the reception i saw the DJ and remembered this thread! I had a few bad thoughts running through my head, desperately hoping that the DJ didn't stuff up!

But he didn't smile.gif

During the intro's he managed to get all the right music for each person and blended them nicely and there was never any point where there was no music playing. The only problem i think there was was a few "volume" issues - where he didn't turn the music down low enough when meals came out, but it was fixed up pretty quickly.

I couldn't see a problem with them at all, so perhaps my BIL go lucky? (I still preferred the DJ that we had though, they were WAYYY helpful prior to the day, and did EVERYTHING we asked for on the night, and then gave us a CD with all of our music on it, such as the entrance music, first dance, etc. They were super - feel free to PM me if you want details smile.gif )

I am so sorry to hear that you had a bad experience but hopefully you havve helped stop it from happening to someone else.

We are having karaoke so I am expecting the entertainment to be bad!

Sorry, we had them too and ours was really bad. It was one of the only things I didn't like about the night.

They'd sent us a songlist and we were to go through and pick ones we wanted to be played. He kept playing really random things that weren't on the list and that were really different to the style we wanted.

The special songs were fine though (ie first dance etc).

I was so annoyed at my DH, since it was the ONE THING he was meant to organise and he left it till the last minute so we had no choice but M/D. To be honest I think I'm still carrying some resentment from it and the wedding was 4 years ago!! Hmm, maybe I better address this with DH!

Very strange I just read all this feedback on them last night and tonight out of the blue they followed up on a quote they gave me a couple of months ago. I have booked another dj in the meantime as he was a really good price and he was dj at a wedding expo I went to and enjoyed his style. The lady on the phone was very professional and lovely to be honest.. and they sent me vouchers in case i have another event i might want to book them for...but everyones feedback here cant be wrong...

I would agree that if you book them, get the DJ's professional bio and ask him to call you direct. I was very upfront with them after reading all the valuable feedback in this section, and told them that unless the DJ calls me for a personal chat I am not going to go ahead with them.

We must have been the lucky ones, the whole dealings with M@byDisc was professional, the DJ called me prior to the wedding as agreed, he was attentive the whole reception and I thought that he did an excellent job. He was with M@bydisc for 9 years I think.

We didn't have that many special requests, only our own bridal waltz which he managed well, in fact he played some of our other songs which we had on that CD - but mixed in a very good selection of other songs.

I decided not to give him a specific list of songs we wanted, basically I told him that he was hired to be the DJ and to provide the most suitable music depending on the mood of the crowd, worrying about music was really the last thing on my mind on the day.

I will stop here ladies, but I must say that we had guests of all ages on the dance floor, and everyone was having great fun.

I really wish they were more consitent in their performance. If you want the name of our DJ (we were in Sydney), PM me.

We also spoke to the DJ a few days before the reception and I specified exactly what we wanted from the DJ and he was all yeah no problem I know exactly what you want etc etc.

I also wrote down exactly what songs to play and anything 'special' like fading the parent dance song at the end and none of it was adhered to.

I also said to him directly do not play anything not on our list or CD's to which he said ofcourse not but did and he is now saying that he didnt have enough songs that we had chosen but I can name at least 5 R n B songs from their song list that were not played.

I to thought he is a DJ and that he would know what songs to play back to back - but he didn't - he had no clue. I was told to that that we didn't choose enough 'latin' songs so he had to skip from one type to another to another - yet I know I chose at least 4 latin songs.

I would also recommend that if you do go with them to find out the name of a DJ someone was happy with and only accept it if they do your wedding.

I contacted my videographer about trying to fix up the abrupt end to our parent dance and his comment was no problem and 'I hear that the music on the night was pretty bad'.
