    DJ Ben did an amazing job with all of the music for our very small, intimate wedding. Despite the small number of guests, the dance floor was busy the entire night! He played to the crowd as well as honoured our requests that we had made going into the evening. I really liked his online platform for requesting music and setting up a timeline of events. The service was professional but personal!

    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.

    DJ Ben was a true professional from our first contact with him months before the wedding. His communication with us throughout the process was amazing and we never had a doubt that it wouldn't turn out great! Ben had an answer for every question we had, and was able to help us out with many little additional favours as well. On the day of our wedding, Ben's music selection throughout dinner and into the late hours was spot on. He was extremely flexible with requests which is something we had not seen at previous weddings. Our guests were thrilled by this, as we heard countless compliments echoing Ben's professionalism. We have absolutely nothing but good things to say about our experience with Ben!

    Hi Leo, thanks for making time to share your experience with a review, greatly appreciated.
    It was a wonderful and one-of-a-kind evening. It was clear to me from the get-go that your many friends and family were very excited (stoked) to be a part of your celebrations in a big tent, in the heart of the Rockies.

    All the very best and thanks again,

    DJ Ben

    DJ Ben was amazing! We used him for our wedding in Banff. He was very responsive to our emails and even offered a consult in person, however we chose to do a phone consult as it was just easier, but it was great just to go over the final details before the big day! When we first chose DJ Ben he sent me a link for an account so that way we could create the timeline, choose songs for part of the evening playlist as well as all the songs for the big events (bouquet toss, garter toss, etc). He also took requests from our guests though out the evening and played a varied of music genres to get everyone dancing. The dinner music was very relaxing and he also played a very cute song to go along with our shoe game. DJ Ben worked in sync with my day of coordinator to make sure that the evening ran smoothly and kept everything on schedule without feeling pushed.
    DJ Ben is very fun, reassuring and great to work with. His professionalism and ability to engage a diverse crowd of people at our venue was commendable and much appreciated. I would recommend DJ Ben to anyone!

    Hi Amanda, thank you for your kind and generous review. I do believe there's more to a great DJ service then simply showing up and providing music for a dance party. Your comments and those of others clearly demonstrate my goals as a service provider to bring more then just music to ones special celebrations.

    All the very best,

    DJ Ben

    DJ Ben was everything we hoped for in our DJ for the wedding. He was very accommodating for what we wanted. The music flowed seamlessly during the ceremony and He made our reception personal and read the crowd for well. The atmosphere was always appropriate for the time of the wedding and he kept the party going after all of the speeches. I would highly recommend him for any wedding !!

    DJ Ben was great. He was well prepared and had a wonderful attitude. I would recommend him to anyone getting married. On the day of, he handled all the set-up and take down and added to our wedding day. Ben messaged me back quickly whenever I had a request leading up to the wedding.

    DJ Ben was amazing all day and was so easy to work with and was very affordable as far as DJs go. The whole process was so simple and he did our ceremony and reception beautifully! We had so many people comment that they had never been to a wedding where the dance floor was that consistently full all night. 10/10 Would recommend to anyone!

    DJ Ben did a wonderful job for our wedding, he was very organised and made sure he had all the info needed to make the day go smoothly. He was very responsive to our requests, helping us with 2 mash up songs, going so far as to clean up a recording we had done to improve the sound quality. He went above and beyond and did wonderful introductions as our MC. He speaks eloquently and from the heart. During the night he took requests for songs and was able to play them while keeping the party going. He was great at reading the room and had a great mix of fast, slow, and party favourites that kept the party going. I would highly recommend DJ Ben! He was a big part of what made our day go so smoothly!

    Thank you Ben for an amazing evening. Ben was extremely accommodating and helped us out last minute with our wedding booking. He was able to include all of our suggested songs, worked seamlessly with our MC, took requests and had all of our guests on the dance floor.
