    We did some research on DJ services in our area when we first started planning our wedding in late 2015. We came across Future Vibes and after reading some reviews reached out for further info. We found Carlos and Brandi to be quick to respond, providing us with all the info we needed and coordinating a face-to-face to go over our needs for the day. This was a huge plus and gave us ideas we hadn't even considered during our initial planning.

    From there any of our requests were met, through a venue change and change of scope of service Carlos and Brandi were nothing but completely accommodating. We booked them to cover our ceremony/pre-dinner/dinner/reception. In addition Carlos handled the on site MC duties personally....This was a big weight off of our shoulders.

    As for the music, Carlos did a good job blending our wishes with his knowledge and people seemed please. He got up and got us moving on more than one occasion and participated in some hilarious dance sequences later in the night once we had perhaps had one too many :)

    Don't hesitate to reach out to these guys and have them take care of your event. If we needed another DJ we would know who to call!

    Future Vibes Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you again for having us be apart of your day. Carlos had a blast with you and your guests. We appreciate the detailed review that outlines our commitment to our clients. If you ever need any other services from us don't hesitate to contact us. we look forward to working with you again.

    Brandi and Carlos are amazing. Super accommodating and really relaxed and easy to get along with. We gave Carlos full range to do what he wanted to with music and it was the cherry on the top for a perfect wedding.

    Thank you Ryan and Rebecca - the feeling is mutual! You both made the experience just as enjoyable for us. Thank you for choosing us, Carlos had a blast playing for you! Wishing you lots of happiness as you start this next chapter of life together!

    Carlos is incredible!

    We had our wedding this past Saturday and I wanted to leave Carlos and Future Vibes a review right away! They were amazing to work with. The simple online sheet to let them know your must plays and timings of everything made it seem less. They got everything right and even handled the changes we made on the fly extremely well. The night would not have been the same without Carlos. He kept everyone there and not wanting to leave the floor, he even joined the dance floor and partied with us which really got things going! Thank you guys so much and honestly everyone is still raving about the smoked chicken and the DJ at our wedding haha.

    Thank you for choosing Future Vibes Entertainment. We had a blast working with you from start to execution.

    Carlos and Brandi were great! They were very responsive to our emails and accommodating of our requests. Carlos was a blast on the wedding day! He got the crowd moving and threw in all the songs I had asked him to play. Our ceremony music was perfect! He had the tough job of trying to make me happy with the music I liked and getting the crowd dancing with the songs they were requesting and he managed to do both so well. It was the best time ever and I was dancing right until the very end! When he got to do his own stuff at the end, it was the best- he is a very talented DJ!

    Carlos was amazing during my reception! He played a variety of songs that got all different age groups on the dance floor, was involved with the crowd, dancing with us and having us sing into the microphone. Brandi and Carlos answered all our questions and our meetings before the big day were always relaxed and professional. I would recommend these two to anyone!!

    Future Vibes Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you very much Brookelyn; it really was a pleasure to work alongside you and Jesse on this special day. The two of you and your guests made it a breeze, what a fun evening! Wishing you both all the happiness in your life together. Thank you for choosing us! Brandi & Carlos

    From my first conversation with Brandy, I knew I made the right choice to use futurevibes for our wedding.
    My husband and I have crazy unpredictable work schedules, Brandy made it super easy for us. She was always willing to adjust timings or meetings, or even just through email when we were out of country; and not once did I wait longer then a few hours for a response.
    We meet with Carlos about a month prior to the wedding day, he listened to us and added touches where he had the experiance, suggested ideas we never would of thought about!
    On the day of the wedding, he had everything needed outside for the ceramony and inside for the reception. He had people up on the dance floor doing the cha cha slide! He kept the party going welcoming requests from the guests and even let my step sons DJ!!!! He was so up beat and eager to help make our day special.
    All around amazing people to work with. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again.

    Thank you Carlos and Brandy !

    Future Vibes Entertainment's reply:

    Nicole, THANK YOU! Carlos had an awesome time DJing for your special day, and the weather couldn't have been more amazing, right!? It was beautiful. We truly enjoyed working with you, and are so honoured to have been part of this day. Who knows maybe the boys will end up DJing in the future too!! :) Take good care, and wishing you all the very best. Brandi & Carlos

    We used Future Vibes for our outdoor wedding on August 27th 2016. Carlos and Brandi were a pleasure to work with. They were quick to answer all of our questions and adjust changes that arose. We were very picky about the music we wanted and we were able to custom make our playlists for guest arriving, cocktail hour, and the reception dance, which we were thrilled about plus Carlos added some of his own picks in which was fantastic. Brandi was very detailed when it came to the run sheet, emailing with questions, big or small, to ensure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it. Carlos and Brandi made our day go flawlessly, they were professional, and so helpful in the months and days leading up to our wedding, and the day of the wedding. Future Vibes is hands down the best DJing service in Kingston and the surrounding area and would not recommend anyone else.

    Carlos was FANTASTIC! He was our DJ as well as MC. He engaged our guests, was flexible with requests and last minute changes and kept me (one of the brides) on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG! I would highly recommend Carlos for any event! Thank you Carlos and Brandi! The music was one of the highlights of the evening!

    Future Vibes Entertainment's reply:

    Ladies - thank you so much! I have to say, Carlos had a truly awesome time! I also LOVED your playlist so much I wanted to come and dance too because I knew it was going to be such a fun night. Thanks for choosing us to be part of your wedding day! We are wishing you the very best!

    While our families had no requirements for our wedding ceremony, we knew they required one thing for the evening – a top-notch DJ and dance party. We had high standards to live up to! We feel that we struck gold with Future Vibes in Brandi and Carlos.

    Reasons that Future Vibes sets the bar high above the rest: organization, availability, and energy.

    Before we booked, Carlos and Brandi arranged for a Skype call with us (we live in Vancouver) to go over what we had in mind for the big day. They went over all of their capabilities from equipment, lighting, ceremony services, emcee duties, and also key details like the ‘run sheet’ that would be used on the day of and to keep everyone in order. They kept us organized with important deadlines and asked all the right questions so that Carlos could pull off the best party possible and keep us worry-free. Carlos coordinated with all of the key people (cellist, vocalist, venue tech guy, dinner emcees etc) and kept everyone on time and on the same page. 100% flawless and that organization allowed us to enjoy our day and night fully.

    No matter how many revisions to the run-sheet we made, or distance between Ontario and BC, they were always available to adjust plans leading up to the wedding day.

    Carlos joked that we had the longest ‘do-not-play’ list that he had ever seen, but he managed to spin the most dance-worthy tunes to keep everyone, aged of 4 to 74, on the dancefloor the entire night (literally). Carlos was a natural and comfortable with the mic after the emcees signed off after dinner. All of his energy was incredibly contagious and went straight to the dancefloor. He danced with us, head-banged and moshed with us, and even organized a square-dance at the request of the father of the bride. Choosing Future Vibes was the best decision we made when planning our wedding.

    Future Vibes Entertainment's reply:

    Carlos and I enjoyed every part of planning with you, even though it was from a distance - we felt like friends from the get go! Thank you for the wonderful words and making us such a big part of your big day! Our best wishes on your future together!
    Brandi & Carlos
