A fantastic, professional DJ and MC! We 100% recommend Family DJ for your wedding or event. We were very fortunate to have Carl as the DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception at the Lightfoot Restaurant in Leesburg, Va on Sept. 28th,2012. Carl is a GREAT DJ and MC. He was very well prepared and had the instrumental versions of songs we needed to support several soloist singers. His timing was absolutely flawless and queued the music precisely. My sister who has worked as a wedding planner in the past commented on the high quality of Carl’s equipment, how good the sound was, and how professional he was as an MC. He was absolutely perfect. During the reception, Carl was the perfect MC as he worked through the program we gave to him with great timing and delivery. Leading up to the wedding Carl was so easy to work with. He is very personable and will accommodate whatever specific demands you have. For us, we had very specific requests for the ceremony and reception (e.g. soloist singers, microphones, etc). Carl played great music that fit each part of the wedding including mellow background music before the ceremony, good background music during dinner, and fun dance music that put everyone on the floor after dinner. Carl knew exactly what to do and when to do it. My sister is getting married next year and everyone has already requested for her to select Family DJ ! Family DJ is a top of the line DJ and MC talent, his equipment is top of the line, he is a pleasure to work with, and his prices are very reasonable. Outside of the amazing quality and incredible value, I think the best thing I can say is that every single person said they had such a great time at our wedding and there is no doubt that Carl played a very integral part in setting the atmosphere for an amazing wedding. thanks for everything! :)--Sam and Grace

Carl was great! He came early to set up, had a set up outside for our ceremony and got set up quickly in the reception hall. He played all the songs I requested and all the ones my friends and family requested. He was friendly and polite. Overall he was a great DJ. Definitely worth the money! :)

All of my guests, from my friends in their twenties to my parents and grandparents, loved Carl Bohman of Family DJ! Friends said they liked him because he kept the party alive and kept people dancing throughout the reception, without making tacky or cheesy announcements or comments. He kept it professional and just played good music!

He was sometimes difficult to reach via email, but the communication problem was made up for by his doing a great job and being a great value. He had all his own equipment and required nothing from my venue, dressed professionally and had good intuition of what to play to make people happy. He knew just what to play, which took lots of pressure off of me!

Karl was great. He was prompt in contacting us when we were looking for quotes, his rates are very reasonable and his music selection was fantastic. Everyone that was there said they had a great time. He knew when to change up the tempo and was very much in the flow of the reception, all without feeling intrusive. When he noticed me and my wife wearing Mickey ears as we made our entrance, he came over immediately afterwards and asked if it was okay if he played Disney songs during the dinner (a big yes from both of us). That little touch impressed me a lot. He was very accommodating to our requests, and made sure to play everything we wanted. I would definitely recommend Family DJ for any ocassion

Carl did a great job DJ'ing our wedding reception. Many of the guests commented on his professionalism, and he kept folks dancing the entire evening. He was flexible and laid-back in helping with the selection of music for a some aspects of the reception when my husband and I did not have specific ideas/requests. He was helpful and friendly during the set-up and worked well with our day-of-coordinator to make sure the evening went smoothly. Thanks, Carl!
