Reception DJ's

I am having a difficult time finding a dj for my wedding. Is it just me or are all DJ's overweight middle-aged men. I have yet to find a young, talented, energetic DJ who can bring some excitement to my wedding reception. Please let me know if you  know of a great DJ!

    Definitely Victor!  He is one of my favorite vendors and I cannot wait for him to DJ at my wedding.

    I used Curtis Knight Entertainment out of Boston.  They paired me up with Greg? Cherone, he was great!  $850 for the whole reception.

    I'll cast another vote for Victor from Partytime. 

    You should also try Bobby from Main Event Weddings: http://www.maineventweddings.  
    Both of these guys have great energy & experience.  And neither of them are overweight or sleezy.  :)

    Well yes, Dan'sBride is right-- the most energetic person I met with of all my vendors was Victor.

    We also met with Bobby at Main Event- also younger and energetic

    If your budget doesnt allow for those DJ's Try
    John Bellagama (hes the DJ at the Landing in Newport)
    Or Music Machine DJs (http://www.musicmachineridj.com/)

    Let me also say this....you've received some great recommendations for DJs and I know what you mean about wanting a certain brand & persona.  I don't want to make you feel bad or start a war, but just think about this for a second: if a really hot, energetic wedding vendor said, "Is it just me or all these brides lately overweight & frumpy?" how would you feel?  There's a lot of fantastic DJs out there that will work hard for you and bring life to your party, even though they may be packing a little extra weight & aren't spring chickens anymore.  :)

    Not intended to start a war, I'm simply stating that a little perspective is good for everyone.  :)

    this may have changed since we booked him and i can't remember exact prices for a saturday (ours in a sunday) but i think his full planning forms option (you fill out a bunch of online forms and he makes a binder that he studies and brings to your wedding for himself) is $2195 and his no forms option is $1695.  again, those may have changed and my price was different bc we changed the package around a little.<div>

    You can also check out Just Juli (www.justjuli.com)!  She's great...super energetic, fun and knows how to keep a party moving!  (She also always sticks to the do-not-play list...a huge plus!)  If you would like any help finding any vendors please don't hesitate to contact me!

    I just met with Jason and Scott from Music Machine.  They were great.  They are younger, very personable, and reasonable.  Give them a call 524-6162 and tell them Kelly referred you from the knot. Good Luck!

    He is really worth it.....I am too a victorfrompartytime bride and he is a great DJ. Yes he is a little pricey, but he is worth every penny. Goodluck.

    I had called Victor to meet with him for ours, but he was booked.  He recommended I call Luke from Luke's DJs (who was also recommended by our venue and our quartet for the ceremony).  Victor said that when his sister got married, he had her hire look (she didn't want her family DJing so that they could enjoy her wedding apparently :).

    We met with Luke and hired him soon after.
