We worked with Clark for our wedding and he was great. He worked with all of our suggestions, including some very specific ones that he nailed! Our dance floor was full the entire night!

We used Clark Sillery from Fred Pappalardo DJ's and couldn't have made a better choice. We liked Clark from the start! While we contracted with Clark long before the wedding, it was one of the last things that we got around to, meeting with Clark only days before our event (we live in VA)... Clark couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful. He worked with us on everything, including purchasing some out of the way songs that we requested.

Our wedding music was complimented by everyone, including the wedding coordinator at our reception location! We only had a small list of songs that we wanted to hear, and in addition to those Clark couldn't have picked a better line up!

We are so happy we selected Fred for our DJ. We originally had thought about another DJ, until we spoke to Fred. We were so happy with his rate and his professionalism. His experience shone through while he was explaining his services. He invested a lot of time for preparation with our music selections, making sure things went smoothly. We had a vocalist, and Fred worked with her for the ceremony. Everything went just as planned. He was awesome. He was so nice and very accomodating. He had the top of the line equipment!! The sound was incredible and clear but not too loud for our guests. He helped to make our day so special. Music was a big part of our day, and Fred understood that and really cared. Thank you so much Fred!!!

We nded up with James McNally (none of the other DJ's were available for our date)- he was horrible - where do I start?!. I gave him a list of songs I wanted played and when, and he skipped over half of them. I told him I wanted to allow for guests to request songs, and he was rude to more than one of my guests saying he wasnt going to play them - he was so rude that my guests actually had to come up to me and say something....so once I went over to him to tell him to let my guests give requests, he actually fought me! I also requested to skip ahead to certain songs, and he once again fought me when I asked him to skip ahead

He brought up at the end of the wedding night that we owed him the rest of his money for that day - in which we had already paid, and he had ALREADY CASHED! He looked into it, and realized he was wrong.
I was in no way a bridezilla, actually I am an extremely nice and friendly person who really gets along with everyone, but he was just horrible and was so hard to get along with and have him understand what I really wanted at my wedding.

On the other hand, Fred was very apologetic to me about James when he called to follow up with me and I told him our experience, and I know a friend of mine had Fred DJ and was very pleased. I just wish that after knowing the horrible way James handled our wedding he would have fired him - unfortuntely he didnt and other couples will have to blindly endure his terrible Dj'ing. The only reason I am even giving this 1-1/2 stars is because Fred really was a wonderful person to meet and he really was unhappy that we were treated so poorly.
