    Amazing DJ!

    We are so happy we hired DJ Ben for our wedding. Everything was just the way we had imagined. DJ Ben was very friendly, professional, and very accommodating. He met with us several times before the wedding to make sure he knew what we wanted. Everyone was able to hear our ceremony clearly and the timing of the music was perfect! He had us fill out some forms prior to the wedding to help create a playlist and he chose songs that fit our style perfectly. He had everyone of all ages dancing all night. He was also able to set up equipment for a slideshow which was great, because we didn't have to worry about equipment not working. We would highly recommend DJ Ben! Thank you so much :)

    Reliable and professional

    DJ Ben was easy to work with and professional yet personable and reliable! His online forms were user friendly and helpful. The pink uplighting made the room very very pink but it was my mistake to inform my co-ordinator and DJ Ben to limit uplighting to just a couple lights rather than all that are included in the package. I dont recall the dance floor being packed at all times but to be honest the entire day was a blur.

    Hi Sh, thanks for making time to share your experience. As weddings are a reunion as much a dance party after dinner, it's rare to have a packed dance floor throughout a 4 hour period. Many reasons for this with some of these being a broad mix of guests with different music tastes and preferences. Maybe some folks not in a real dance frame of mind but happy to watch others while enjoying conversation with friends and family not seen for quite sometime.

    The important thing for me is to be ready and flexible when a dance party moment starts to materialize on the floor. At that point I work to keep it going until folks decide it's time to visit the bar or move on.

    All the best,

    DJ Ben

    DJ Ben is amazing!!

    DJ Ben did an amazing job for our wedding. He kept everyone up dancing all night. We didnt know how to pick all of our songs so we left it up to Ben, he selected the perfect music to reflect us. My husband and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

    Oh What A Night

    Definitely would recommend DJ Ben! Our friends are still raving about the music we had for our wedding - people were on the floor the whole time! The energy that Ben created was outstanding and as a result, our wedding was a complete celebration! I can't speak highly enough about it! He was responsive to our questions/requests in the months/weeks leading up to our wedding, and equally responsive on the night! A joy to work with, who understood the "mood" of the room and reacted with an awesome set of music! We wish we could've kept dancin' all night long!

    Thanks Ben for inviting me to be an important part of your wedding day celebrations. Knowing that you and your many friends travelled a great distance to celebrate in the Rockies, leads me to feel fortunate in having been a part of it.

    All the very 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!

    We were incredibly happy with DJ Ben and the service he provided. Leading up to the wedding he was very helpful, responsive and quick to offer suggestions. He picked beautiful music for our ceremony and did an amazing job MCing for us. His music selections had everyone dancing literally up to the last second. Our guests are still raving about the wonderful MCing he provided and his dance selections. He was great at getting suggestions played and even humoured this bride for a couple of repeat songs, when I was too busy chatting to dance the first time around.
    Seriously, one of the best things about our wedding! We highly recommend DJ Ben and Livin & Dancin DJ Services. We will most definitely use him again should we require DJ Services again.

    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,

    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
