Need Dj Recs

Looking for someone easy to work with and relatively inexpensive.  Looking for $1-2K depending on if we do uplighting or not.  Thanks

    If I give you recs are you going to hide who you finally chose?

    oh and I am not sure it this is possible, but I prefer to work with the DJ, not with some company that has multiple DJ's and you dont know which one you are going to get, but I dont know if any exist.

    Certain companies allow for you to request a particular DJ. I know that Elite does that. They also have showcases that you can attend so that you can see the different DJs and their style, which allows you to choose which one you want.

    I am using Jerry from Latinbrothers.com.  I think they are pretty small.  They did a friends wedding and he was fabulous.  And he was affordable.  He is doing english only for my wedding and will only be playing spanish songs that you would hear on Z100 if he plays any spanish songs.

    magic moment is too far away, we are very busy this semester and can only see a DJ either late at night, or on weekends.

    I second Jay Thomson! He did such a wonderful job for my wedding. He was so outgoing and great to work with.

    I booked Touch of Class out of Kearny. Mario is the owner and the one who will be doing my wedding. There is only 1 other guy he works with, kind of as a back up. Mario said he always books himself first. Price is within your budget too!

    And if Adam's either booked or can't meet you for whatever reason, Anthony is at www.goodtimesdjnyc.com. He met us after work one night at a bar to talk.

    Wayde from your wedding entertainment- sounds like he has what you want. Hes in your price range, he offers uplighting for a good price and when you book him, you get HIM. He doesn't employ a lost of other DJ's to do his job. I liked him because hes veryorganized and has a sincere personality.

    We're using Chuck Russo.  We were looking for someone to play music and do the minimum.  He's in your range but he doesn't do uplighting.

    I'm late to this post, but I would highly recommend Electrifying Productions. www.electrifyingprods.com The owner and DJ, Brian, it fantastic, very laid back, and negotiable with price. We're getting the reception, cocktail hour, ceremony, and uplighting for $1700.
