    Best part of my wedding

    I was having a lot of trouble finding a DJ for my wedding in Banff. One of my bridesmaids suggested asking her wedding DJ, Michael, for a recommendation. He said he couldn’t confidentiality recommend anyone but had done his sisters wedding at the same venue a couple years prior. I am sooooooo happy I went with about town. My wedding was a mix of 60 year old family friends and 20/30 year olds and I don’t think the music choices could have been better. Everyone danced all night and the ceremony went off without a hitch. Gosh I just cannot recommend them more. What a perfect day with a perfect DJ

    About Town Entertainment's reply:

    Tessa thank you SO much for your wonderful review, and for having Michael be a part of your big day! It was a beautiful day for two beautiful souls.

    We wish you a lifetime of health and happiness!

    The party didn’t stop!

    I would absolutely recommend About Town Entertainment. Shane was our DJ for our big, formal, Croatian wedding at the Terminal City Club. We had a huge variety of requests - from jazz swing, to Croatian music, to oldies, to 2000s hits - and they managed to capture everything we wanted on our day. The dancing was non-stop all night, and Shane was kind enough to play us a few extra songs after our time was up.

    About Town Entertainment's reply:

    Aw thank you SO much for your wonderful review Nicole, it was our absolute pleasure being part of your big day, and we thank you again for considering About Town Entertainment!

    Professional and Brought the Party to Life!

    Man About Town was a really great company to work with! Shane was our DJ, and he did an excellent job at following our queues, and keeping the night flowing smoothly. The dance floor was bumping until the very end of the night!

    Great DJ services!

    Big “thank you” to Christian for the amazing DJing at our wedding this past April 2018, and to Michael for organizing everything up until our wedding day! Michael was so personable and easy to deal with in the planning process. Christian was an excellent DJ, and we still have friends and family raving about the music, and how much fun they had dancing at our wedding. I can’t say enough good things, so I will be sure to recommend this company to anyone and everyone. Thanks again!

    Hello Sarah! Thank you for BOTH your reviews, you're making us blush over here! Congratulations again to you and Derek, and thank you for letting us be a part of your big day!

    We booked Michael to DJ at our wedding and we couldn't have been happier! The music was really good and he knew exactly when to quieten it, make it louder, the type of music, etc. We didn't give a lot of information music wise to go off of before, as I am bad when thinking of song names, etc. So we practically gave him free reigns and it was perfect! He also would ask for permission before playing songs with lots of swear words, etc., if they were requested by guests, which I was thankful for. Thank you Mike for doing such a great job! Our guests had an amazing time dancing all night!

    Johnny far exceed ANY expectations I had for our DJ. He was intuitive, quick on his feet, and played just the right mix of music for our party. We really couldn't be happier! I will definitely be recommending him for future celebrations for our family and friends.

    Thank you SO much for your review Tina! We are so happy we could be a part of your celebration! Have a fantastic new year!

    We used Man About Town for our DJ services and got an amazing deal. I did a lot of research when looking for a DJ and they were very reasonable in pricing and were a great asset to our wedding! They were prompt at returning emails, very thorough and no hidden fees everything was all up front and no suprises! Everything went smooth right until the wedding and the day of the DJ came up to me at the wedding and asked I needed anything or if there was anything specific id like him to play to let him know. He was quiet but very professional. He played a great selection of music based on the information I gave him!

    Hello Codie!

    Thank you SO much for the kind review!!! We had a blast with you, your friends, and family! Congratulations again!!!

    Great DJ/MC Service!

    I liked that Man About Town was a hands-off option for us and super easy to work with. They didn't nitpick details, their forms were straight forward to fill out, and everyone found that DJ/MC Johnny Awesome was professional, punctual, and great at playing our guests' music selections and staying within those genres to keep the flow going.
    Johnny Awesome had his work cut out for him, though, since the main two groups of music which were requested weren't very similar (Abba, Beatles, Madonna vs Drake and Kanye). He totally made it work!
    Man About Town came highly recommend by my cousin (married last year) and my sister (married two years ago). The company did right by those recommendations.

    About Town Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you Karen!!!

    Johnny had a blast, we can't wait to see you again at the next family celebration!

    Amazing DJ!

    Shane from About Town was absolutely perfect! They were incredibly accommodating when we had something go wrong and had many last-minute changes, getting us a second microphone and changing the whole structure of the ceremony. Shane rolled with the punches and did not miss a beat. We gave him a pretty general idea of what our taste in music is and he absolutely nailed the playlist. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

    About Town Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you for your review Ben! Rolling with the punches is almost as important as a job as nailing every mix, and Shane was absolutely happy to do both of those things!

    We hope to be celebrating with you again soon!
