    It was absolutely great working with Ben. He was flexible, even played a bunch of polish songs we asked for. All of our guests were up and dancing all night. Would recommend!

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Joanna, thank you for dropping in and putting a few kind words of support in. Had a gas playing to you and your guests what with a great collection of Polish songs you had suggested would be enjoyed by many in attendance.

    All the best ahead and thank you again,

    DJ Ben

    Amazing DJ and MC

    DJ Ben was an amazing DJ and MC. Tons of our friends and family members commented that the music mix at our wedding was perfect. He kept the party going all night long and played the exact right mixture of music for our crowd. He also was more than happy to work with me to fade out our first dance song so it wasn’t painfully long and helped me figure out when to fade it out. I was also really impressed at the end of the night, when the kids were starting to get bored one of them walked up to him and asked him coordinate a game of musical chairs, and he was totally down to do it. The kids had a lot of fun and the wedding party also joined in. It made for some really great photos! Throughout the whole planning process DJ Ben was easy to communicate with and on the day of he made sure that everything went smoothly. His website is easy to use and he was constantly giving me tips during the whole process. DJ Ben was a pleasure to work with on the actual wedding day as well, and helped make the day extra nice. All of the people at our wedding who made a speech or toast also commented to me on how organized the whole thing ran. Having him was a huge burden off our shoulders the day of, and we would highly recommend him!

    Dj for wedding ceremony and reception

    DJ Ben was amazing.!! We were married at tunnel Mountain. Reservoir then had our reception at The Moose Hotel and Suites in Beautiful Banff on May 14th 2022. DJ Ben did the music for both the ceremony and reception and did an exceptional job. Right from when my wedding planner booked him to when he sent us the info on how to go through the songs and make must play list to do not play list. Very professional and he makes it very easy to ensure that we had the songs we wanted to hear at the reception as well as the songs we needed for the ceremony. He kept the dance floor full the whole night.
    We would recommend him all day long.
    Tamara and Jaro.

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Tamara, a genuine thanks for putting a good word in on my behalf, and for putting your trust in your planner who invited me to be an important part of your day. Had a great day with you and your many guests.
    And your venue of choice, The Moose Hotel & Suites (Banff) , a first for me. Great spot, with a more contemporary vibe.

    Best wishes for a life of happiness and many adventures,

    DJ Ben

    Best Wedding DJ!!

    Ben was simply amazing - he read the crowd and knew what to play to keep people on their feet. Moreover, I appreciated that he made sure to include some of our requests. Would recommend to any friends and family who are looking to have their wedding in the Canmore or Banff area. Dancing is one of the best - if not the best - part of the reception, and you want the best in the DJ booth. Don't look any further - book him!

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Lindsay, thanks so much for taking time to show your support and appreciation. Couldn't agree more, it's all about family, friends and a great dance party with something for everyone.

    All the best to you and Travis,

    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.

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Thanks Adam, you're the best Greatly appreciate you making time to share your appreciation of my services.

    All the best,

    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
