    Highly Recommended

    Hiring a DJ for our wedding was one thing we knew we knew we had to do, but had no idea where to start. DJ Ben was one of the first DJ's in the Canmore area that we reached out to and his willingness and patience to answer all of our questions and concerns made it an easy choice. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that DJ Ben was one of the best parts of our wedding day - he did our ceremony, our cocktail hour and our reception and the transitions throughout the day were seamless. DJ Ben had every single song we requested (even a rare piano version of a top 40 song that can't even be found on Spotify). He showed his experience in the industry with how smooth everything went and how well he worked with our MC, leaving nothing for us to worry about - in fact, we realized during dinner that we hadn't even introduced ourselves to DJ Ben yet, which we believe shows our complete trust and confidence in him. As far as the reception went, DJ Ben was very receptive to the crowd and had the dance floor full the entire night (and we mean the ENTIRE night - the bar was already shut down and more than half our guests were still dancing the night away. The biggest and best compliment we received from our wedding was how fun it was, and we believe that is a big testament to DJ Ben - Thank you!

    Ceremony and Reception Music—Wonderful Experience

    DJ Ben was responsive, personable and created a wonderful atmosphere . He coordinated the ceremony music perfectly and produced a fun dance setting for our reception. Able to accommodate the young, the old and the Brazilians in the crowd! Would absolutely recommend him to my friends. Thanks Ben!

    the dj service was good, it was about what we would imagine from any dj service. we are a bit picky about music and had some specific requests including cultural music and what not to play. it took some back and forth and we sent over many of our songs so that he would play them, in the end it was fine, but a bit stressful for us in particular given our specific music tastes. he did a great job mc'ing and handling the crowd all night and was accomodating to our requirements.

    Hello Silvia, thank you for taking the time in providing your review. Your observations are important and appreciated in helping me meet the needs of future clients similar to yourselves. Apologies for any pre event stress, but it was important that I fully understood your expectations. Your patience and understanding were greatly appreciated and gave me the confidence to do my best.

    Thank you also for having invited me to be an important part of your wedding day celebrations, an invitation I never take lightly.

    All the best in the years ahead,

    Sincerely,

    DJ Ben

    Sidebar: Music Programming in 2017 and Beyond
    One of the great challenges today for event disc jockeys, with so much great music out there, is working to meet an array of musical tastes/expectations that a client and their many guests might have.

    As a professional wedding event DJ, one of my primary goals is finding a balance between a client’s playlist requests/expectations, and what their many guests will be responsive to during the dance portion of an evening.
    To simply play a client’s dance playlist without discussion or regard for the outcome would be a disservice to them and their many guests.

    5 stars across the board! Ben was not only the awesome DJ, but also our AMAZING MC for our wedding reception! I reached out to him not fully knowing what services I needed for our wedding at Buffalo Mtn. Lodge. He responded quickly and explained what was best for us!! The day of the wedding Ben was prompt and had all our ceremony music ready! At the reception he was the PERFECT MC!!!!! There was never a quiet or dull moment! After dinner and all the fun activities, Ben had everyone on the dance floor the rest of the night!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Hi Erin, a belated thank you for having invited me to be a part of your wedding day celebrations, something I never take for granted, especially when asked to be Master of Ceremonies. The prize give-away was a hoot and I can't say I saw the "iced" coming, lots of fun.

    All the very best to you and Kevin

    DJ Ben was very professional and helpful in the couple weeks lead up to the wedding (even though it was over Christmas!). He helped my mom and I choose the ceremony music and go through the sequencing of it all. He also was very helpful with general sound/audio and our slideshow on the night of.
