A Dream to Work With
DJ Majd was amazing from start to finish.Sent on 10/08/2021
Before we booked him, when he knew that we were still interviewing other DJs, he was contacting our venue to find out their set-up and rules about additional speakers. He followed up promptly and left us confident that he would be available for anything we needed.
Leading up to the wedding, he was extremely helpful. We had no idea what we were doing, and he helped us build a schedule and understand the etiquette and expectations around speeches as well as the timing of the whole day, from ceremony to reception. We had a huge range of music styles we wanted and were very picky about go-to party songs we DID NOT want, and he accommodated everything.
Majd's energy and presence was positive, enthusiastic, and confident - he always made us feel certain that he would take care of anything we needed and was so kind at every moment. We decided to have a friend sing us down the aisle, and he worked directly with her to ensure he had the proper set-up and planning to support her needs.
The day of the wedding, every single person who worked with him was so impressed that they told us how great he was. The manager at the venue told us he hoped to work with him again, and my friend who sang for us told us about the pep talk he gave her while they were setting up, saying "I didn't realize I needed it, but he made me feel so good about performing in front of everyone!".
Throughout the night he was attentive and checked in with us about last-minute adjustments we needed, and he made every single speaker feel good before passing them the mic. The photobooth we rented with him was also easy to use and people had immense fun with it!
Majd knew we were disappointed by the restrictions to dancing at our wedding due to COVID, and he managed to make sure everyone was still bopping at their seats the whole night. When we did sneak in some distanced dancing, everyone had a blast down to the last stragglers of the night!
I can't emphasize enough how lovely Majd was to work with and how much of a weight off our shoulders it was to have him there through the lead-up and day of our wedding. Not only is he immensely professional and generous, but he is a true gentleman and a kind soul. I feel like we made a friend when we hired Majd, and his assistant for the night, Bruno, was also very friendly and a pleasure to work with.
Thank you for helping our COVID wedding become one that our guests called the best they had ever attended!!
Back to Basics Entertainment - DJ MAJD's reply:This is by far one of the best compliments and testament to our work that I've ever received. Hardial, thank you so very much for trusting me and my team with your beautiful celebration and taking the time to highlight our work with such well-put words.

Fun and engaging
DJ Majd and MC Mike were a please to work with. Majd was professional and responsive the months beforehand. He answered all of our questions and make the process so easy.
On the day of our small cottage wedding, we knew we had nothing to worry about! They took care of everything and set themselves up with ease. They really made our reception inviting, fun and special. They knew how to read the crowd and kept everyone dancing all night. My friends and family have been raving about their performance ever since. They truly went above and beyond for us.
Thank you so much for the amazing time we had!

Un service personnalisé exceptionnel!
Le service proposé est complet et tellement simple! Des rencontres avec le DJ sont organisés ce qui permet de clairement nommer les attentes. Le document numérique permet facilement d'ajouter des détails, et ce, même à la dernière minute!!! Durant la soirée, les imprévus étaient bien gérés et j'ai vraiment eu l'impression d'être écouté pour que ma soirée correspondent à mes besoins! Je recommande sans hésiter!!!!Sent on 20/09/2021

Large Gala - Amazing Service! Will Hire Again
Majd DJed & MCed our biggest event of the year (a large sit down gala for hundreds of people). He was so easy to work with and took the stress out of it for us. Majd also took into consideration the different portions of our event (sit down dinner music) vs dancing post-speeches, and chose the perfect music for each section. The dance music got people moving & made the event so fun for everyone! Overall, we are thrilled with our choice and will certainly hire him again moving forwards.Sent on 23/07/2020
Back to Basics Entertainment - DJ MAJD's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words and lovely review Claire! It was an absolute pleasure and am more than excited for next year’s event.

Friends and family exploded out of their seats to dance
Dj Madj and his team were awesome! Leading up to the event, Madj scheduled regular check-ins to cover logistics and make sure everything was handled ahead of our wedding. At the event, Madj and Michael were attentive, professional and fun. For days following the event our friends and family talked about how great our DJ was.Sent on 15/09/2020
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to anyone!
Back to Basics Entertainment - DJ MAJD's reply:Sarah thank you very much for the sweet and kind words! I truly mean it when I say IT WAS OUR PLEASURE! You and Ryan were awesome to work with from the beginning till the day of the big party :)
