New WeddingWire Review

I was pleasantly surprised to learn of a new rave review on WeddingWire for an Ambient DJ wedding performed this past Fourth of July. I wrote up a gig log from the DJ's perspective earlier in July. Marina and Sabir were an awesome couple to work with, and the dancefloor action that night was more explosive than a fireworks show! Here is what the bride had to say in her review:

Gregg was phenomenal! We knew from the start of our wedding planning that the reception music was going to be the most important and difficult part to pull off. We had a very mixed crowd with the Bride's Puerto Rican family hoping for Salsa and Merengue, the Groom's family mostly African American and fans of Motown oldies, plus younger friends looking for hip-hop and pop dance music.

Gregg totally nailed it, he found a way to make everyone happy creating a magical mix of Celia Cruz, Elvis Crespo, Michael Jackson, Earth Wind and Fire, Pitbull and Baltimore Club hits. People were up and dancing before the salads had been served and the dance floor totally packed before the cake was cut.

Gregg totally listened to what we wanted and met with us twice to make sure he knew what our vision for the night was. He listened to our requests and also made great suggestions when we were out of ideas (ex. he recommended Sean Kingston's 'Fire Burning' to play as the very last song during our sparkler exit, it was a great touch). He wasn't at all cheesy and did a great job as MC. He had just the right energy and kept the night going smoothly announcing group photos and the other key events.

All the guest raved about what a fabulous dance party the reception turned out to be, we couldn't have asked for anything better and would recommend Gregg and Ambient DJ to anyone with out hesitation!

Songs that DJs Probably Shouldn't Play at a Wedding

He possesses an amazing memory for song and artist information that can be recalled at lightning speed.

Songs That DJs Probably Shouldn't Play at a Wedding (but sometimes do)

As you probably know, I DJ a fair amount of weddings and anniversary parties throughout the year. I also attend my share of weddings and formal events. I'm sure if you're a DJ like me, (while at these events) your ears are open at all times. All of a sudden, you become the Roger Ebert of DJing, you say things to yourself like "wow, I can't believe he's playing that", "Bad Call" or occasionally you might "borrow" some ideas. In any case, I've noticed over the years that some DJs disregard lyrical content in dinner music more than they might think. Of course, I'm not talking about playing curse-loaded 2 Live Crew songs during cocktail hour. I'm talking about "love" songs that ain't so lovely. Here's a list of songs I've heard at weddings and anniversary parties that probably shouldn't be played. (Sometimes it's the couples request for some of these tunes, but I believe the DJ should alert these people of the lyrical implications.)

"What's Goin' On"- Marvin Gaye

I've heard this played A LOT of times. The song's a timeless classic, but guess what? It's an anti-war tune. When I think love and marriage, I shouldn't be thinking of thousands of soldiers that lost their lives in 'Nam and getting Platoon visuals. Granted, DJs probably play because it's has a nice vibe to it and it appeals to pretty much everybody. Either that or Rod Tidwell performing it at Jerry Mcguire's wedding comes to mind. Whatever the reason, Marvin intended for this song to be taken as a wake up call to drop the weapons and keep the peace and not knocking back a few shots with Cousin Eddie at the cocktail hour.

What to play instead: Try something like "Come live with me Angel" or play some of his classic Motown duets with Tammi Terrell such as"Your Precious Love" or "You're all I need to get by"; or if your at a less conservative event, Sexual Healing is a good call. It's got a great vibe to it and it's about sex… Not War.

"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)"- Rupert Holmes

My Pop's brought this one to my attention once, "why are they playing this? This guy's cheating on his spouse!" Yup, that's what this fun, island flavored banger is about. In actuality, he's attempting to cheat on his spouse with well, his spouse. Rupert's story has a Usual Suspect like twist at the end of the tune where after writing an ad in the paper in search of a more exotic relationship, the ad is replied to by the woman he's attempting to leave. While the true message of the song is to pay attention to your woman, maybe you have more in common with her than you know, The Lyric "I was tired of my lady, we've been together too long" probably shouldn't be blaring out of a DJ's speakers at a reception. In the end, play it if it's a strong request. Don't bust it out on your own.

What to play instead: This song is a true original, there's really nothing like it. But if you are looking for the white guy island vibe, I say go with one of the many UB40 covers: "Can't Help Falling In Love With You", "Come and Take Me (Here I am Baby)" or "The Way You do the things You do" - they'll all work just fine.

Fleetwood Mac (in General)

Here's a true confession…I like Fleetwood Mac. Go ahead, make fun of me…ok….enough already. I'm not sure why I like them, but those people are just plain talented. In any case, I heard a DJ play "Dreams" at dinner during a wedding reception some time last year. It seemed like a chill, under the radar tune to play, but then the lyrics kicked in… "Thunder only happens when it's raining", "Players only love you when they're playing"… ouch… THUNDER? RAIN? PLAYER? Not really words the bride wants to associate with the wedding. How Bout "Say You Love Me" sounds innocent enough right? WRONG… this joint is really about Christine McVie's love interest in the song using her as a late night last resort. The Same goes for "The Chain"… "If you don't love me now, they you may never love me again" Strong words Mac… You can also add "Go Your Own Way" to the list… The whole band had volatile relationships with each other and their problems bled into their lyrics. It's been said that divorce in America skyrocketed after the release of 1977's Rumors.

What to play instead: "You Make Loving Fun" slips past the sneaky breakup ridden F-Mac lyrics and serves the same purpose as "Dreams". You can also run with Stevie Nick's duet with Don Henley "Leather & Lace"...I'd also refer to some Steve Winwood for that chill rock vibe.

"On Bended Knee" and "End of The Road"- Boyz II Men

WOW!!! These are full fledged, knock down drag out breakup jams! These are the songs you blasted in your head phones on the bus ride home in the 7th grade when you couldn't woo the girl next to you in class. "On Bended Knee" has nothing to do with proposing or the like, It's all about reconciliation. Some years back, I was working for another DJ company and I was told by my boss to play "End of the Road" during dinner. I refused. I was never sure whether he was testing me or he really wanted me to play the 1992-93 breakup anthem. If you are in your mid to late 20's like me, you gotta love some Boyz II Men…but stay away from these joints.

What to Play Instead: Since our friends from The City of Brotherly love only racked up hits about heartache and loss (It's So Hard to Say Goodbye, Water Runs Dry) or Bumping and Grinding (I'll Make Love to You, Uhh Ahh) or Partying (MotownPhilly, Thank You) they never really made time for great love songs. For that early 90's r&b radio sound, I'd go with Shai's "Baby I'm Yours", SWV's "Weak" or Aaliyah's "At Your Best".

This is my first installment of "what to and what not to play". I got Plenty more where these came from. So I hope you enjoyed. Please add some suggestions, there's probably some tunes I shouldn't be playing…so...hook me up with some feedback!!!

Guide for Selecting Wedding DJ Entertainment

With a multitude of disc jockeys to choose from, how do engaged couples select the right DJ for their once-in-a-lifetime celebration? The stakes are high, as guests are less likely to remember a cold fish dinner than a wedding DJ whose performance was ice cold!

Word of Mouth and Referrals - DJ entertainment is very hard to describe via websites, blogs and brochures. If you have attended a wedding where you loved the music and entertainment, this can be a great starting point in your research. Similarly, if a friend or co-worker raved about their DJ, this is valuable information. What in particular did they like about their DJ? Was it their thorough preparation, transparent business practices, musical selections, dance skills, or something else?

Experience Counts - A wedding DJ/Emcee's duty is to keep the reception program moving smoothly. Transitions should be smooth and pacing is important. Experienced wedding DJs understand the flow of a wedding reception and offer seamless transitions. They understand the importance of working with the team of vendors (banquet manager, photographer, videographer). They will better be able to address potential problems that can crop up at receptions. Ask your prospective DJ what percent of their annual events are weddings, and how many weddings they have worked at in the past. You can also read unsolicited reviews of wedding vendors on Wedding Wire (

Styles Vary - Are you looking for an elegant event with music at moderate volumes, or for an extreme party rocking experience? Is a magnificent light show important? Are you seeking a high or low level of guest interaction? Do you enjoy the well-known line dances, or are you seeking a more contemporary entertainment style? There is no right or wrong answer, but it is important to align yourself with a DJ whose style matches the intended style of your event, or else is flexible to incorporate your preferences. You can get a sense of style compatibility in your initial phone or meeting interviews. First impressions are important - do you connect on a personal level and believe that you can work well with this individual?

Professionalism - The term "professional DJ" is hard to verify. However, characteristics of a professional DJ include:

* professional grade equipment (i.e., no dilapidated, carpeted speakers from the 1970s or home stereo equipment);
* a professional website and presence on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter;
* testimonials, preferably built over a period of time, as well as a list of references;
* member in professional organization such as the American Disc Jockey Association (ADJA) or the New Jersey Disc Jockey Network (NJDJN);
* carries liability insurance;
* participates in industry conventions and continuing education, to elevate their craft;
* carries back-up equipment to each event; and
* is responsive to your phone and e-mail communications.

Planning - The level and modes of reception planning vary. Some DJs offer online planning forms that allow brides and grooms to plan their reception casually from the comfort of their own homes. Other DJs rely on in-person planning meetings, while other use a combination of mediums. How important is the planning process to your event? Be sure that you have access to the specific DJ who will be performing at your event. The better that the performing DJ understands your program specifics, the more successful your event will be.

Pricing - Particularly in today's challenging economy, engaged couples may be operating on a tight budget. Our advice is to secure the best wedding DJ entertainment that your budget will allow for!

Contrary to the impression of some, DJs are not a standard, commodity product that should be secured at the lowest cost. In New Jersey, we've seen wedding DJ packages range from $300 to as high as $10,000, with an average of approximately $1,200 for a four hour reception. Along with this wide spectrum of prices, there is a wide range of quality. Wedding DJ entertainment tends to be a small portion of the overall wedding budget, yet it is often the most memorable facet of the reception. According to the American Disc Jockey Association (, “surveys conclude that nearly 100% of brides would have spent more money on their entertainment and made it their #1 priority in hindsight.”

In their research, brides should focus on the value proposition from each prospective DJ. What is the relationship between the price quoted and the benefits being offered? For example, assume that there are two DJs of similar experience/style and both are offering identical packages - if Disc Jockey A is quoting $2,000 while Disc Jockey B is quoting $1,000, then select Disc Jockey B.

Now, imagine that DJ A is an experienced wedding DJ with a professional website and glowing testimonials who is quoting $1,500.  DJ B is a newer company with a less experienced DJ who doesn't carry liability insurance and cannot provide any testimonials - DJ B is quoting $500 for your event.  In this case, if you can afford the $1,500, then hire the highly-rated, experienced DJ to ensure that your event is a success!  We believe that there is generally a correlation between price and quality of service.

One final tip regarding pricing that is particularly in today's competitive economy,  couples should ask their prospective DJ about any special offers. While DJs may not discount their prices, they sometimes will throw in a service for free, or at a reduced rate.  For example, with our company, we typically have special offers listed online, but many brides overlook them.

Wedding Gig Log - 4th of July Edition, Columbia Station

I traveled to Phoenixville, PA beyond King of Prussia for a Sunday wedding at Columbia Station (Robert Ryan Caterering). Columbia Station is a restored train station located on a working railway. Interestingly, this wedding was held on the Fourth of July! Guests were given the opportunity at ~9:30 PM to step outside and view the fireworks.

Sabir and Marina, the groom and bride, met at Ursinus College nearby. 175 guests were in attendance, split evenly between the bride and groom's side. This was a bi-cultural celebration with the groom's side of the family African-American and the Bride's side Latin (Puerto Rico).

Cocktail hour, in an adjacent room, featured a combination of smooth jazz, Latin jazz, and flamenco as per the bride's request. The room was packed, and an interesting mixture of perfumes lingered in the air. Later on, the cocktail room served as headquarters for a Photo Booth.

The parents were announced to the Cosby Show theme song; the bridal party entered in to an instrumental version of Kanye West's Touch the Sky. I was relaxed on the mic, and aced the introductions, including the alliterated flower girl/Jr. Bridesmaid trio of Maia, Milan and Malaysia. Marina and Sabir entered into the chorus of 'Something Special' - Usher, and enjoyed their first dance to Robin Thicke's "2 Luv Birds" off this new album (great song!). English and Spanish blessings followed, and the Best Man delivered a short but heartfelt speech, mentioning how both he and Sabir bonded as kids since they grew up without their mothers who passed away at young ages. The combined parent dance was "If I Could" by Regina Belle (Sabir danced with his Aunt Mauri).

For the salad course, I kept things in the R&B genre, then tested the waters with some salsa. The response was immediate, with numerous couples coming out to dance, and things just built from there, with a packed dancefloor before the main course! This is the type of crowd that we as DJs yearn for - fun party people who love to dance. Even better, both sides of the family stayed out on the floor through the different musical genres. The groom danced well and often!

The dinner, a surf and turf combination, was quite tasty. For dinner music, I played selections by the likes of the Stylistics, Otis Redding, Luther Vandross, Quincy Jones - some of the older couples came out to slow-dance, and the Aunt of the Groom gave me an awesome compliment. Cakecutting was done early, to the song "The Sweetest Love" - Robin Thicke.

After dinner, I got into the hip hop and witnessed the dancefloor move to the next level - hands in the air, dance circles. Things exploded when I played Fatman Scoop's "Be Faithful," and I next slammed in DJ Kool's "Let Me Clear My Throat" to a raucous reaction. From there, I moved into 90s material, and then onto the faster dance club fare, killing things with Major Lazer's Pon di Floor, then doing a long blend of the Perculator, then a long blend into Spinzy's Electro Remix of MJ's "Don't Stop Til You Get Enough" (Ariel Perrazolli RMX). More Latin sets, and I successfully extended a merengue set with a 160 BPM merengue selection "La Abusadora" by Oro Solido. On the line dancing front, the Electric Slide and Cupid Shuffle were fun floor-fillers.

I had heard a guest singing Waka Waka (Hello to Africa), the Shakira World Cup anthem, so on a whim, put it on. To my surprise and delight, 90% of the room got into a long, snaking conga line. Awesome! For the bouquet toss, imagine a packed floor of beautiful ladies shaking their ring fingers to Beyonce's "Single Ladies." Time flew by, and we closed the evening with EWF's "September," and then an encore performance with Sean Kingston's "Fire Burning" as the guests left for the sparkler sendoff outside.

For those of you not familiar with the term "Smauz Standard," Spinzy and Iron Mike DJ'd a reception in Washington Crossing a few years ago where it was non-stop dance floor action. Based on this definition, last night's wedding reception met and exceeded the Smauz standard! This may very well be the party of the year, and will surely make my coveted Top Ten Party list of 2010.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Sabir and Marina Peele!
