    The best wedding DJ!

    Our DJ Joey was amazing! He literally bent over backwards to accommodate our last-minute change in wedding date. He paid particular attention to the details of our wedding program and custom song requests to make our day extra special. Additionally, he accommodated last-minute requests to livestream parts of our reception dinner so that some long-distance guests attending virtually could participate in the speeches. We can't recommend his services enough!

    Dear Nic
    Thank you for the kind words and review. It was an honor working with you both and we wish you the very best in your future together

    Best DJ in Vancouver

    Joey was amazing. We were a COVID wedding, so we had to change our plans a few times. Joey went with the flow with no questions asked. He transferred our date, and modified our booking to ceremony-music only when we had to reduce to an elopement. Beyond that, I had a personalized recording of a poem I wanted to play during our ceremony, and after putting the audio file together myself, Joey re-mastered the sound on it and made it perfect for our day. He was on time and professional, and did everything he could to be there for us. Additionally, when we booked him for our full wedding, he had so many options for bonus stuff. This guy has spark canons, a smoke machine. You name it. He's got you.

    Thank you kindly Sarina for your amazing review. It was an honor to be part of your very special day. Even with covid restrictions, it was simply beautiful and well planned. So grateful to to share it with you

    Fantastic ! Professional ! Great Value

    Our experience with West Coast DJ was a perfect pick. We were last minute scrambling to find a DJ for both ceremony and reception. We were contacted within minutes of our enquiry and were very impressed with the professionalism. We were guided every step of the way with our package selection and so glad we chose the best they had to offer. Emails and phone calls were always answered and when it cam time to suit up and show up, that is exactly what they did. All our guests danced the night away to awesome tunes. We will always recommend West Coast DJ and thank them for a day to always remember

    West Coast DJ Services's reply:

    10/10 Superb Service

    We were searching desperately last minute for a DJ service for our special day and we came across West Coast DJ services. Joey contacted us with one hour of a request and spoke to us on the phone. We could tell immediately he really knew his stuff and helped us fit into the exact right package. He arrived on time and had everything setup and ready to go when our guests began to arrive. We were so impressed by the sound and lighting that we chose. Joey's music selection during the entire evening was fantastic. Even the older folks had a blast dancing. Joey offered us personalized gobos as a gift for us. I can't say enough good things about these guys and will continue to rave about them as will our guests. Thank West Coast DJ Services.

    West Coast DJ Services's reply:

    Dear James & Cindy,

    Excellent Experience Overall

    Joey was a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire process. There was slight confusion on the wedding day, however, he quickly corrected the issue prior to the reception start. Joey was receptive to comments and concerns, and adapted to an ever-changing schedule without issue. Overall, I would recommend Joey for a wedding as he served his purpose, the value was great, and he brought a great experience for all during the wedding.

    Dear Denis & Amy,

    Outstanding Professionals

    Right from the very start of our first phone call y husband and I felt very comfortable with Joey who was very detailed in what they could offer us in the way of packages, pricing and custom add ons. We were very specific in what we wanted and Joey assured us we were in very capable hands. We had Russell as our DJ and he was very punctual and professional. He played fantastic music throughout our evening and had all of our guests up dancing all night long. We wanted lots of latin music played and Russell placed his selections very well into his sets.We got precisely what we asked for and much more. All our expectations were met and we could not have happier with the service. Thank you so much Joey & Russell for a day and evening our guests and us will never forget. We highly recommend them.

    Disappointed

    I have to say I was disappointed with the DJ service we received from
    Russell and the response when I brought up my concerns with Joey. Firstly, we scheduled a FaceTime with Joey and Russel to go over expectations prior to the wedding. Russel was not there, unfortunately, and he was to be our DJ. We discussed the distance of our wedding tent from the DJ booth during that FaceTime and were told the sound system would have no problems reaching. When we arrive onsite for dinner, my family members had set up their own speaker and therefore none of the music we suggested was played and basically we paid for our DJ to sit around and do nothing until we got to the dance floor at 10pm. He was only scheduled to play until 12am so we paid him extra to stay until 1am. During this time we ended up with quite a few country songs which I had explicitly said we’re not fans of. Friends of ours made requests to which they were treated very rudely and told “if you think you can do better you do it”. My friend took this literally and went to put a song on, after which, Russel returned and freaked out on her. Ive heard really good things about Joey but I would avoid using Russel. When I brought my concerns up to Joey he quoted me on an email, that was prior to our FaceTime talk, that states we would use our speaker for dinner if he felt the music couldn’t reach. I feel like a lot got lost in translation with Russell not being present at that meeting and that a professional would assert himself to have the bride and groom’s choice of music played throughout the event, while being paid.

    Keep the Dance Floor Going!

    Joey was great to work with. Things didn't go as planned (our fault, not his), but he rolled with the punches and kept the dance floor rocking. He took requests and played a great mix of music. Great energy!

    West Coast DJ Services's reply:

    Dear Sarah,

    Thank you for your kind words and it was a pleasure being a part of your special day. It was very unique in every way and will definitely go down in the history books with us. Thank you for making our job easier with fantastic communication. Best of luck in your future together.

Music has always been a part of my life. For over 10 years, i found Heavy record crates and bulging CD collections were not portable enough for my nomadic lifestyle, so when music moved to mp3s, i realized could mix tunes from all over the world, in any corner of the globe. I bought a DJ controller...and the rest is history. These days you’ll find me behind the decks at weddings, birthdays and corporate functions. I pride myself on being a professional not only in my music selections, but in customer satisfaction. West Coast DJ Services demands professionalism and excellence from thier employees and i am excited to be part of a company that not only treats thier customers with diginty and respect, but their employees as well. I look forward to serving you
