Justin was a true pleasure to work with. We hired him to DJ our wedding after seeing him in action at a friend's wedding where we danced the night away. Throughout the entire process, Justin was responsive and helpful, and available to take calls and meet in person when possible ... View more (we were planning our wedding at a distance). He listened to all our requests, and was able to craft playlists for pre-ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and (of course) a rocking dance floor set. Our wedding music felt very much like us (as eclectic as we are), and everyone had a great time dancing - on more than one occasion someone told me they wanted/needed to go use the restroom, but couldn't leave because he just kept the hits coming one after another. He was also very flexible on the day of and added new songs (obscure tracks, I might add) right before the event started, with no issues or complaints. In terms of pure logistics, Justin was on top of setting up the sound for our wedding so that we could move seamlessly between two different back yards, and he dealt with an unexpected downpour just before the ceremony like a true pro - he was able to hustle to keep everything dry (with some help from our guests), and while I'm sure it must have been stressful for him to deal with the deluge, he didn't let it show, and was very calm and professional. I would recommend Justin highly to anyone who wants a unique musical feel to their wedding, a packed dance floor, and a professional vendor they feel they can trust.

Indie Wedding DJ was amazing to work with! Justin was very professional and responded very quickly to all of our needs. He was an amazing DJ and kept our guests dancing for hours. My friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had.
Justin lived up to every hope and expectation I had for him. As a bride planning my own wedding, I was nervous about every vendor I hired. He was very professional and organized, providing a day of timeline and communicating with my m.c. And day of coordinator the week leading up ... View more to the wedding. Justin was enthusiastic about our song selections and making sure the evening ran exactly as we wished. Our guests LOVED the music. Even people who "don't dance at weddings" were up there next to us loving what was happening. Great vibe, great dj and great business person. I would most definitely recommend Justin to a couple that wants a full on amazing atmosphere and creative music selection!

My fiancée and I had no preferences for DJs when we began our search for one for our wedding. When we read the glowing reviews and saw the video prepared on his website we decided to go ahead and hire Indie Music DJ. It was one of the best decisions we made with respect to our ... View more wedding – Justin was very easy to work with and he exceeded all of our expectations. We didn’t have a set playlist for the wedding; however after pinpointing the genres we enjoyed Justin was able to find the right songs to keep our guests dancing throughout the entire night. Some of our friends that typically don’t dance at weddings even made their way to the dance floor and enjoyed themselves. Justin also acted as the MC for our wedding and he ensured that everything was on track for the night. We would recommend Justin to anyone who is looking for a wedding DJ.

He made sure that everyone had an awesome time and my guests are still commenting on what a fantastic experience they had at ... View more our wedding - and Justin helped make it happen. I would definitely recommend Justin if you want a responsive DJ that will work with you to help you create an unforgettable party for yourself and your guests on your wedding day! Christine & Bryan
