DJ Experience:A week prior to the wedding I gave him a list of MUST play and DO NOT play songs as well as our entrance songs. I was a little taken aback when he asked me if I could upload all the music files and send them to him. First, a week before the wedding I was really stressed and didn’t have time to be uploading music and second isn’t that why I am paying to have a DJ. During dinner the music was so loud my wedding planner had to ask him to turn it down, and in response he was quite rude to her. After dinner, he sat the entire evening in a chair and didn't get up to energize the crowd or get people on the dance floor, and he actually talked on his cell phone several times. The energetic, fun, interactive, entertainment part of DJ services was not there, and he was obviously just there to get an easy paycheck. He also played numerous songs off of our DO NOT PLAY list including the hokey pokey, electric slide, Celebrate and others. Videography was about the same.The video is pixelated, blurry, not sharp at all had poor and sloppy editing and looked like an amateur made it. During the recording of our ceremony using his IPhone a black border appears in the video, he is walking around and the picture is shaky, he tripped and stumbled a few times and captured the ground, and he also started talking on the video, so instead of our vows you can hear him talking to someone. Video recording was also suppose to go for a certain amount of time per our contract, but the recording kept going past the cut off point. Larry comes up to me in the middle of dancing and says he needs a check right then and there for the additional video time. I had to leave my wedding to go locate my purse in a locked room somewhere in the country club and bring my check book up and sit and write him a check in front of all my guests. Unprofessional and tacky! I would not recommend him to anyone.

We actually had a Sweet 16 birthday party for my daughter! The work done before hand really made for a seamless event! What a professional we had with Larry covering all the bases and bringing things up we never would have thought of. All of those things made for a very special and memorable event for my daughter! I would recommend Larry to anyone who wants someone easy to work with, reliable, and most of all skilled in his profession! You rock Larry.
