    Excellent DJ Choice

    DJ Ben was excellent at our Banff wedding. He was professional throughout the whole process, and was great at our reception! All his music choices were perfect. He really got the vibe we were going for and everyone had a great time. Our guests have all raved about the music. Thanks Ben!!

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Warmest regards,

    DJ Ben

    Highly Recommend!

    You can't go wrong with DJ Ben. At the last minute we decided to change to an outdoor pavilion at the same site. Emailed Ben and he responded with additional equipment to handle the music for our outdoor ceremony and for a very reasonable cost.

    His experience, easy going nature and his pre-planning forms really made things go off without a hitch and the music was one of the most stress free parts of our ceremony.

    He happily played all the songs I setup (I think probably more than most people ask for) and threw in many good DJ picks. He responded to all requests promptly from line dancing to maritime music. The dance floor was going with people of all ages right after dinner. The wedding party closed down the dance floor at 1 am.

    I spent a lot of time doing research on the DJ before the wedding and briefly though about cutting costs on this part of the wedding but decided to go with Ben as his reviews were all amazing. I've attended more than my fair share of weddings and the music is a huge factor in the quality of the party.

    I highly recommend DJ Ben. Thanks for helping to make it such a great night.

    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!

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Kelsey, thanks so much for your generous show of appreciation. Yes it was a great evening and I thank you and your many guests for making my job all the more easier.

    All the very best,

    DJ Ben

    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!

    Kept everyone on the dancefloor all night

    DJ Ben was right there with us on our postponed journey through the pandemic and was very flexible with our plan B, and C. Always getting back to us quickly when we would reach out.
    The day of our wedding he kept our guests dancing all night long which was my big wish for our reception. He was very professional and easy to work with. If I ever need a DJ for another big event I know who I will be contacting.
    Thanks again DJ Ben, you really made our night awesome!
    Christine & Jason

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Thanks Christine for dropping in to show your appreciation. Wow what a lively group you had in helping you and Jason to celebrate. I knew from the get go I'd be busy workin' it from start to finish while entertaining your guests with lots of dance floor favorites and much more. Also a sincere thanks for pushing through with Covid - it's been a long, long wait since you had to first cancel.

    All the best,

    DJ Ben

    Outstanding DJ!

    There is one word to sum up DJ Ben and that word is AMAZING.

    I had DJ Ben play at my wedding on August 14,2021 and throughout the whole process he was incredible! He is professional, has excellent communication skills and is so organized (on top of being a wonderful DJ!) I was particularly impressed with the online form system he created that allows you to input must play songs and so much more! I have received countless messages from guests saying how much fun they had. DJ Ben is an outstanding DJ, he knows how to read the crowd in order to keep everyone engaged, he is friendly and knows how to have a great time! It was a pleasure to have DJ Ben play at my wedding, he exceeded all my expectations!



    I highly recommend DJ Ben and I will be using him for any future events where DJ services are required!

    Thank you DJ Ben!

    All the best,

    Great Party and Atmosphere!

    We had DJ Ben for our reception at our wedding on October 10th and he sure knows how to get the party started, and keep it going! We are fun group who love to get up and dance, and DJ Ben was amazing at reading the room and knowing when to play the right songs at the right times. He was easy to work with and really easy going. He was patient and understanding as we worked our way through planning a wedding in a pandemic, and delivered more than we expected. It turned out to be a great evening, largely because of his services. If you are looking for DJ services at an event we would strongly recommend you reach out Ben and see how he can elevate the room’s mood.

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Kate, thanks so much for your show of appreciation, and for making the most of the times by continuing with your wedding day. It was a wonderful evening with everyone being respectful of maintaining a safe and healthy environment.

    Best wishes for a life of happiness and prosperity.
