Hayward >Sound Wave Mobile Dj Service
AWESOME!!!!. David was the only DJ we met with when we were looking for a DJ/MC for our wedding. We had a good instinct about him and we thought his prices were reasonable. His website allows you to choose the songs you want to be played in your wedding and it is not limited to the songs in his database (you can add songs that are not found). Throughout our preparations, we were in constant contact with David to ask him questions, and he was very responsive. Two days before our wedding, he realized that our First Dance song was a live version (it has clapping in the background). He suggested another version of the song, which was not to our liking. We asked if there is any way the clapping can be removed. We started to panic a little because we had already practiced our first dance to that version of the song. But David pulled off a miracle and made the clapping disappear! I don't know how he did it but it came out perfect! We appreciate the work he did for this, as our first dance is very important to us. David also provided MC services. He called us a few days before the wedding to confirm pronunciation of the names of our bridal party. He also contacted us to confirm the timing of the different songs we wanted to be played during the ceremony. David understands music and reads the crowed very well. He played all the right songs that everybody loves and kept the party flowing! All of our guests loved all the music he played and had a great time! We will never forget the great quality of service he provided in our wedding day and we appreciate all the hard work and effort he put in to make it a perfect day for us.
professional and produced a memorable, FUN reception.
David is very professional and flexible, and he delivered a great slideshow of our childhood photos and a FUN reception. Everyone told us they had a blast, we had a blast, and the dance floor was completely packed from the minute it opened to everyone until the end. David was extremely patient and accommodating when we kept changing plans, and he really carried the reception, as I didn't have anyone else in charge of moving through the schedule. I loved his online wedding planning tools, including a searchable database of all his music. Hiring David made the reception much more enjoyable and much less stressful than trying to arrange everything myself with "DJ iPod." I read that 80% of what guests remember from your wedding is the entertainment, and I think that's true. Hiring David was the single best "investment" in producing what some of the older guests said was the most fun wedding they had ever been to (and the music we chose wasn't even catering to them either!). And at a small fraction of our total wedding budget, the investment was an excellent value.
In response to the negative review's warning: I would not write a positive review for David or anyone unless I think they deserved it. If they didn't, any pushyness would only make me think more negatively of them. I'm not in a position to judge if it's David or that reviewer who is the one being dishonest, but she is also not in a position to discredit other people's reviews simply because of her individual experience. All I can say is that based on my experience, I would highly recommend hiring David as your DJ.
significant lack of communication skills, dishonest.
Communication is key to any successful event and David repeatedly lacked this. Honesty was also an issue that we found out at the end..
Reviews by other people - be aware!!!! I should note that David is very pushy in asking people he thinks liked his work to write reviews everywhere for him. He will bring it up over the phone and email...an annoying number of times. If he was this eager when his clients tried to communicate with him may be there would not be an issue. This is just something to keep in mind when looking at other great reviews for David.
Upon meeting David several times at the beginning, my finance and I couldn't be more thrilled. David appeared to be highly professional and very promising. As we got closer to the wedding day, we had to email/call Dave many time to get him to send us a list of songs he mentioned he would send that he thought would fit our music style. This took 4 weeks of just trying to get a response (not mentioning that when we did get this, a song list was no where to be found and the only thing David did was point to a general song list on his website; btw, he never did provide us with a customized list).
Then we had to make sure David had the music for our first dance. This communication went on for over two weeks and ended one day before the wedding. Imagine the stress...enough said.
David did show up at the wedding, did a good job because we gave him all songs he had to play. He completely messed up on the contests..who won what, how it was supposed to be explained and done..Naturally we went over this with him prior to the wedding and he was supposed to be the EMCC. so much for that..On top of this, our friends spend days thinking of fun questions for a shoe game where the bride/groom answer something about each other without knowing each others responses. Five of these questions were read by David, leaving the other 25 completely out!!
One of the reasons we initially went with David for our DJ was that he could provide us with a song list so we could buy songs played at the wedding later. While we gave him the dance music to play, he chose most of the cocktail hour songs and now, 5 months later, over 15 emails and a dozen voice messages, we still do not have it.
He lied about why he could not give us the song list, saying it was ready and in a email draft from day 1. Every email/phone call, he came up with excuses, which seemed highly unreasonable most of the time given that he had everything ready. If he said no to us at the beginning, it would have been a better way of handling the situation.
Find another DJ, there are plenty of people you can give your money to who will not give you this much stress.
My Unforgettable Wedding Day!. David was always on top of everything. He is one vendor you will not have to stress over. He did my wedding in October of 2007 and helped make it as unforgettable as it was. He pays very close attention to detail and insures that everything you want, happens without a doubt. He works around your schedule and communicates with you throughout the entire planning process. Don't hesitate to hire him, you won't regret it! He has a huge variety of songs to pick from and whatever he doesn't have, don't worry, he'll find it and get it! Everyone enjoyed the music, no one stopped dancing, he knew what song to play when, it was just perfect!! He creates slideshows that will bring out every emotion in everyone. He's spent a great deal getting to know us and creating a story on a slideshow for everyone to see on our wedding. It was amazing!
