    We used Troy Entertainment and they were fantastic!  Lee was our DJ and he did a great job.  I never left the dance floor!  Troy is similar to TKO (they have lighting and props if you want them.... we let them bring out a few simple things like streamers and such towards the end of the night but weren't big on a ton of props), but Troy is significantly less expensive.  I think we paid just under $1000 if that helps.  There was a DJ and an assistant and they have a great online planning tool that lets you search their data base for songs to add to your must play/do not play list.  TKO actually recommends Troy if price is your issue with them. HTH!

    We are using the Dj Crew as well. We met with Kevin from Midnight Music and I REALLY liked him and the price was a bit lower than DJ Crew, but DJ Crew seemed to fit with us better. But I was at a wedding where Midnight Music was the DJ and they played GREAT music. Plus, DJ crew does have the referral program so you have the potential to save some money.

    We used Geoff from Hats Off Entertainment and he was fantastic. Had the dance floor packed all night and he was just named #1 DJ on the Fox 8 Hotlist for the Akron/Canton area.

    I've never heard of Midnight Music, but I've heard good things about Big Ear.  I was actually considering them for my own wedding, but went in another direction simply for convenience.

    I used Midnight Music they did fine. The dance floor was busy throughout the night, and if a song didn't work well with the crowd he changed to the next. We sometimes found the DJ missing and he stayed into dinner music a bit to long.... Also on my itinerary that i signed with them, we wanted an anniversary dance, which was never done, No one noticed but my husband and I.

    We are using the Marino Brothers--they have been in business forever, and I haven't heard a single bad thing about them! Our reception place mentioned them saying that they bring the same sort of energy to the reception as a band would. Good luck!

    We are going with Beach Boyz in Cuyahoga Falls.  They were actually expensive but I found out that they were offering a deal at a hall and asked if they would honor it at our hall.  They agreed and then took off another 100 for our wedding being a Friday.  It'll be around 700 in the end.  I've been to a lot of weddings that they did and they are amazing.
