    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.

    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

    We had Ben DJ our June 5th wedding, and he did an excellent job! Ben provided the music and sound for both the ceremony and reception, as well as lighting for the reception. I loved the idea of the up-lights and they looked even better then I imagined! It was hard to describe our broad musical taste but Ben did a great job of playing what we wanted and what the guests loved. To be honest I was a little nervous as I had found Ben on a list of vendors from our hall, and I'm big on reviews and couldn't find many. Please take the time to leave a review for him! The dance floor was never empty the entire night, it was amazing and went even better then I could've imagined. Thank you Ben! I would absolutely recommend you to anyone!

    DJ Ben for Weddings

    DJ Ben was very professional, organized, and skillful as a DJ for our wedding at the Kananaskis Lodge in August. Throughout the planning and day-of process we were comfortable with our choice and Ben was very flexible with our requests. Would highly recommend!

    DJ Ben made our wedding!!! He is the best!!!

    We had the BEST experience with DJ Ben. We still have people telling us that we had the most fun wedding dance floor they've ever seen!!! I loved that we were able to go through his extensive library online and see all his top requested songs and submit song requests ahead of time. He takes the time to get to know your own taste in music as a couple, but also knows how to read a crowd and get everyone going on the dance floor. He is so awesome, he helped make everything run smoothly and was so professional, always quick to respond and on top of everything! We cannot say enough great things!!!!!

    Phenomenal DJ for Weddings

    Working with DJ Ben was a great experience for both of us! He skillfully guided us through the prep process leading to our wedding, and he made us feel comfortable, understood and respected throughout. He made everything seem easy. When the big day came, he demonstrated his knowledge and professionalism - being extremely prepared and appreciated by the entire crowd. He was able to adapt the music to a diverse audience from around the world, and found something for everyone - entertaining all of us until the wee hours of the morning. DJ Ben helped us have a fantastic party and we'll forever be grateful to him. We whole-heartedly recommend working with DJ Ben to those looking to have a blast, no matter what occasion they're celebrating.

    Perfect DJ for our Perfect day

    Aside from food the music and dancing was the next big deal at your wedding at the Rimrock Resort in Banff. We are so pleased with our choice of DJ Ben. We had so many younger (12 yrs and under) that stayed all night and danced up a storm and the fact that he played the songs they wanted to hear and met their needs was fantastic. They danced their feet off. He also made sure that the songs my husband and I wanted to hear at our wedding were all played. He didn't miss a single request. Right down to my traditional italian requests. He was amazing and so accommodating. If you are looking for someone that is a crowd pleaser, ensure all your requests are met and that is fantastic with all details and right on point, you need DJ Ben to work his music magic. I promise you will not be disappointed. He was everything and then some of what we had hoped for our special day.
    Thanks so much Ben for being a part of our day.

    Hi Gina, thanks so much for taking time to share your experience and observations. I certainly make every effort to play requests, even the bad ones, although one might need to wait to hear such - don't like clearing the dance floor due to a bad request.

    Live, laugh and love for a lifetime,

    Warmest,

    DJ Ben
