    In tune the whole day

    What can I say, but he was fantastic. DJ Ben did our ceremony mic and our reception and was fantastic the whole way. Communication was fantastic, an online song request list was convenient and ensured no mistakes were made with our selections. We have an ethnic family and DJ Ben was able to ensure songs we wanted were played and the entire family enjoyed every moment. Highly recommend! A++ service!

    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!

    Livin & Dancin DJ Services's reply:

    Hi Laura, a sincere thanks for dropping in to show your support, and apologies for this late reply as it has been a busy summer. It sas a treat to have a game of musical chairs, maybe I should be pitching this to others with kids in attendance (and not just the little ones). And thank you for having put your trust in me as I know there are many of us all making the same promises.

    Musically yours and all the best,

    DJ Ben

    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.

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

    All the best,

    DJ Ben
