Steve was awesome DJ and MC at our wedding!!Sent on 28/10/2013
From the moment we came to meet him at his home-office to the last minutes of the clean up after our wedding night he was very organized, extremely helpful, and so easy to work with. He made us feel at ease and reassured that our wedding day will go without a glitch - which it did! Not even knowing us much he MC’ed our wedding very well, he incorporated very fun games which were entertaining to the guests and both my husband and I – we didn’t know the questions he was going to ask us.
I selected a long list of songs that I wanted Steve to play at our wedding as we had a multicultured guest crowd and he was able to find them all and play them no problem. The setup of music equipment was all done behind the scenes and seemed seamless to us and the guests.
Steve was very professional throughout the entire ceremony and reception. Please note, Steve has his own attire that he wears to the reception (Music Maesto t-shirt), so if you have a formal dress code type of reception and want to ensure that your DJ/MC fits in to the crowd you might want to discuss that with Steve beforehand.
Overall, he was awesome and we would definitely recommend Steve to all of our friends!
Music Maestro DJ Service's reply:Dear N&R, thank-you for your kind words, your reception was definitely a lot of fun! I am delighted to see that you were happy with both my music & emcee services; I aim to please. :-)

It has been two weeks since the wedding and we are finally back in the swing of things. The official thank you cards are a little ways out but I wanted to thank you now. You were amazing to work with and so many friends and family commented on you. It was such an amazing night, bittersweet that everything is over. Thank you for your enthusiasm, skill and professionalism, I would not have wanted to work with anyone else!Sent on 18/06/2012

This company (and owner, Steve) is truly professional and handled the Quist wedding like a real ‘Maestro!’Sent on 23/05/2012
I had a wedding consulting business back in the early 90’s and one of my challenges was finding a decent DJ for my clients. The level of service far surpasses his fee. Wish I knew of this company way back then! I will recommend Music Maestro to anyone from here to tim-buk-too!
All the guests were not only impressed by the varied music selections, but by how friendly and personable Steve was. Someone asked me if he was “related to the bride or the groom?” What a great compliment! You would be surprised by how the majority of DJ’s in the lower mainland of BC, don’t have that social savvy and agreeable disposition!
The subtle backlighting for the head table was also a nice touch. That is such an added bonus to have access to fab lighting systems -- with the DJ company. Trying to bring in yet another business to do that is really costly!
Steve made my job that much easier – and that more enjoyable. He is a gem! I wish his company much success!

Our experience dealing with Steve (Music Maestro) was nothing but a positive experience! We actually interviewed quite a few dj's before we met Steve, and to our surprise in most cases we had to interview a representative of the DJ and never got to meet the actual person who will be at our wedding. With Music Maestro, we met with Steve himself and got to ask all the questions we wanted in person which was a big plus. We opted out getting Steve to act as our MC as we didn't want to put this kind of pressure on one of our guests. This worked out great! He was professional, knew how to get our crowd going and fully played out the evening events with absolutely no hiccups. It gave us a warm feeling that our evening's schedule was in good hands.Sent on 15/04/2012
We gave Steve a list of songs for the ceremony and first dances, but the rest of the dancing was left in Steve's hands to feel out the crowd and pack the dance floor. That worked out great as well. It didn't take long before all of us were dancing the night away! Throughout the night I kept on approaching Steve with any special requests/announcements we wanted and he integrated those seamlessly! Absolutely no complaints apart from our sore feet the following day!
I've put a 4.5 out of 5 for value as there are slightly cheaper DJ's out there, but none of whom gave us the secure and warm feeling we got with Steve. We would highly recommend Music Maestro's services especially for a wedding as you won't be disappointed. You'll be able to relax and enjoy your evening knowing that your wedding is in good hands!

I can't say enough good things about Steve and Music Maestro DJ Service. He did a fantastic job at our wedding! From the moment we started talking to Steve, he went above and beyond to help us out. Even when it looked like we weren't going to hire him (he was a bit above our original DJ budget) he didn't hesitate to help with any wedding questions we had or to give advice. That's good service! And I'm SO happy we ended up deciding to go with Steve after all.... he was MORE than worth it! Always quick to answer my emails (and there were many of them) he not only did a great job with our music-related inquiries, but helped out with a lot of the other wedding details as well. Honestly, you can't go wrong with hiring Steve.Sent on 09/09/2011
Steve.... thank you!!!

Jenny and I would like to thank you for your unbelievably professional and above and beyond DJ services at our wedding at Hycroft last Saturday.
We were both impressed on how efficient, helpful and intuitive you were in ensuring the wedding flowed perfectly. Thank you again for your brilliant, discrete services and for making our wedding so stress free and as fun as it was. Our guests all had a blast! We will certainly recommend you to anyone that will listen!

Steve was very helpful in the planning process and the day of. Thanks to Steve our day went off without a hitch. He was their to keep our MC on track and keep things flowing. He even played a second "last dance" for me when my groom missed from the first one!Sent on 17/08/2011

Music Maestro is the best DJ service in the Lower Mainland. We had so many guests telling us they had never had so much fun. The dance floor was packed from the time the music started to the very last song of the evening. Music for every age. You will not be disappointed if you have Music Maestro to your event.Sent on 16/08/2012
Steve is so great we not only had him for our son's wedding in 2009 but again July of this year for our daughters wedding.

As a fellow vendor in the industry, i have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Music Maestro DJ Service. Steve is fabulous to work with, always arrives at venue well ahead of scheduled and ready to go before any guest arrive. He personal appearance is professional and attractive, but not overdone. One thing i tell all my clients is you know you've hired the right DJ if your dance floor is always hoping with a mix of your wedding guest, not just one group. I can never arrive early for tear down, Steve always has a full dance floor right thru to last call, that's the sign of a great party!Sent on 17/01/2012
