Testimonials: 2014

One of the most important feautures of a successful Maine Wedding DJ is what past clients have to say. You'll find testimonials about our Wedding Disc Jockey services here. If you'd like to communicate with them directly let us know. Many of them have given us permission to share their email addresses.

"We had Dave as our DJ at our wedding this past December. He did such a good job (and he's a nice guy too)! He played so many of our requests and did a great job intuiting the music we'd like to hear based on our request list. Everyone was dancing and having a great time! Dave was very responsive with email, came (and left) on time, was a great price compared to other DJ's I contacted and was also good about setting up in a short amount of time. I also liked that uplighting was part of the package. It's not something I would've chosen to add on, but it actually added a lot to the party atmosphere. My husband and I highly recommend Dave Dionne as a wedding DJ!"

"Dave, thank you so much for making our wedding the best wedding we've ever been to, that just so happened to be ours! You did exactly what we asked for. We wanted specific songs for our ceremony and you played them all to make our ceremony extra special. We wanted a specific transition from our first dance into the dance party and it could not have worked out more perfectly. Because of you, people had the time of their lives at our wedding. We wanted everyone to be dancing all night and they were because you played such fun music. Thank you for listening to exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much for exceeding our expectations and making it the most amazing wedding we could've asked for! "

"I can't say enough about working with Dave for our wedding - he was a complete pleasure to work with!! Before the ceremony Dave called to speak to us personally to be sure that he had all of the information that he needed, and he offered us advice on how to make sure that things ran smoothly during the reception. Even though we went against a few of Dave's recommendations (which may have made things harder for him!!) he did everything that we asked and the reception was exactly as we hoped it would be! Dave even came up with a game the tables could play to give our centerpieces away, which we loved!! Dave kept the party going the whole night - the dance floor was full the whole time and everyone had a great time! I really feel like we just needed to get out of the way and let Dave work his magic - you could tell he enjoys and is great at his job!! For anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding Dave and Dionne Entertainment are the way to go!!!"

"Dave Dionne was a wonderful DJ. He was always available and he has a great system and questionnaire that you fill out. Once it's complete he does the rest. When the music started to play for the wedding party I almost cried is was so clear and lovely to hear. Every song I wanted for every special moment was played to perfection. very reasonable pricing for the service and quality Dave offers. I would recommend Dave to anyone. One of his best features is his voice, perfect! He was not obnoxious and commanding of attention, but he knows how to get the party going! Thank you"

"Dave - what can I say? Another FABULOUS wedding! We chose you because you did such a great job at my sister's wedding. As usual, you hit the ball out of the park! Jessica and I were very pleased to have you DJ our wedding, and you did a great job. All the guests were happy, and had a super time. You do magic with music, you just seem to know how to cater to the crowd in your own special way! Thanks for taking the extra step and mic'ing the ceremony and saving me from what would have been a disaster when my iPad wouldn't work for our processional/recessional music as well! You're the best! Professional, down to earth, knowledgeable, reliable and affordable. If you need a DJ that you don't have to worry about, pick Dave Dionne!"

"Paul was the DJ at our wedding on Saturday. From first contact, he was amazing to work with- always listening early what I wanted, making arrangements for special requests, and checking in to reassure me. The ceremony set up was amazing. At my outdoor wedding, by crashing waves, everyone was able to hear the service. He transferred seamlessly to our reception and provided fun entertainment, took requests, patiently waited as we changed plans about ten times throughout the night and generally provided excellent customer service. We were highly impressed with Paul and would recommend him! Thank you for making our wedding day go off perfectly. We had a blast!! "

" DJ Marcel Leclair rocked at my daughter Kyley Flynn's wedding yesterday. He was funny, professional, energetic and just plain perfect. I couldn't be happier with his work and would recommend him to anyone looking for high energy fun. He kept the party going and was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you Marcel for being part of Kyley and Shawn's day and giving them happy memories that I am sure will last them a lifetime. Kari Coyne!! "

"I cant begin to say how amazing Dave was. Picking the DJ was probably as stressful as picking the actual venue. The DJ is the heart of a wedding and if they aren't on top of it, your reception will show it. This man was absolutely first class and it was not hard to tell he was a professional as soon as he took the stage and introduced us all. From there you can just sum it up just the same. I highly recommend this group! Thanks again!!! "

" We were married on August 2, 2014, and we had Marcel Leclair as our DJ. He was excellent. We were somewhat demanding in the sense that we had a variety of types of music that we wanted played and we provided a big list (Hip hop, salsa, cumbia, zydeco, pop, etc.). Marcel 1) delivered the music we wanted cohesively and mixed in with other music that fit our taste well, 2) kept our dance floor packed all night and 3) most importantly was always two steps ahead and quietly consulting with us before taking the wedding in the direction it need to go. I can say with hindsight, I only wish all of our vendors could have been this professional and good at what they do. Thanks Marcel!! "

" We booked Marcel Leclair for a wedding on 08/01/2014 and let me come right out and say - He was the best DJ/MC/Wedding coordinator anyone could have ever asked for. Because our wedding was in Maine and we were coming from Massachusetts we were only able to meet with Marcel once before the wedding. But let me be clear - that's all it took to know we would have the perfect day. He was attentive, funny, considerate, and most of all exceptionally knowledgable and experienced. Whenever we were unable to answer what we wanted for "this or that" - Marcel was right there with MULTIPLE suggestions to put us at ease. The day of the wedding, Marcel was there very early coordinating with the JP, the caterers, and even my cousin who wanted to sing a few songs! Marcel made sure my two year old ring bearer got down the aisle! He poured the champagne toast for us! THE GUY IS SIMPLY AMAZING. Oh YEAH and Music? Lets just say from 6p-11p people of all ages CRAMMED the dance floor. He played everything we asked and more, he made every announcement we asked for, and he rolled with the punches whenever things veered off track. You could pay triple for Marcel and you still wouln't be paying enough. You can't possibly expect to be in better hands with than this guy! I could go on and on. THANK YOU MARCEL! ! "

" Dave recently MCed our wedding reception at Ocean Gateway. Dave did a phenomenal job! He played music that pleased all guests. He kept the night moving and kept people dancing. I would recommend Dionne Entertainment to any bride/ groom for their wedding. Dave also up lighted our event and made the room light up as the sun went down. We couldn't have been happier!!! "

I also continue to hear from our guests that when they asked for a specific song to be played, you played it. This wedding has left our guests with a lot of memories of joy and laughter!

" We had Joe Dionne DJ our recent wedding at Sebasco Harbor in Maine and he was awesome! We were planning our wedding from Boston, and we were unable to meet him ahead of time. The Dionne's quick responses via email reassured all our planning and our day went off without a hitch. Joe was totally cool. He was very respective to the demographic of the crowd and played appropriate music, getting the young and old alike up to dance! The music was perfectly blended and we really had a great time. I wouldn't hesitate to hire the Dionne's again!! "

" Hi Joe, sorry this email is coming three months later but we really wanted to reach out to you following our wedding at the Wentworth this July. You were amazing! Our friends said all night long and for months after, how good you were and how your music selection and timing was perfect. That "turn down for what" encore was beyond perfect! It was so wonderful working with you as you were so patient with lining our wedding party up, dealing with the millions of requests from our guests, and for making it look so effortless! And a special thank you for sticking with our "do not" play list as I was told during the reception that people had requested songs from it and you stood by our preferences! I hope we run into you again down the line at one of our friends weddings! Thank you again so much!!!"

Everything I was hoping you would do was incorporated perfectly into the event, and everyone had an AMAZING time dancing thanks to you! Our party would not have been complete with you as our DJ. Thank you also for your patience as I sent some repeat emails. You made us, and our parents and guests very happy, and we especially loved the way you blended right into our first dance without any awkward long instrumentals at the beginning. I will be sure to recommend you hands down to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding-everyone talked about what a wonderful job you did! I hope you have a wonderful summer and on behalf of both of us, once again, thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts!!! "

" I can't even begin to put into words how truly amazing and professional Dave Dionne is to work with. We got married on June 27, and everything went off without a hitch. Dave is available any time you need him, and will respond almost instantly to any questions you may have. We met with Dave before the wedding to go over song choices and name pronunciations. Dave did not miss one thing we asked for and he has a perfect announcing voice and made no mistakes! (We have a lot of difficult names!) The whole night went so smoothly including our ceremony that he hooked microphones up and made sure my "Entrance" was right on time. We are truly appreciative of the wonderful job he did. Do not hire anyone else! Dave is perfect for the job, you won't be disappointed! THANK YOU DAVE!!!! "

"We had Marcel as our DJ and he was great. We had a different genre of music we intended for the pre-processional and processional parts of our wedding that veered from traditional songs and with suggestions from us he was able to find and play them all. He was very good about sticking with a general easy listening vibe for most of the dinner time and incorporated music for everyone, but also strayed away from the songs on our do not play list. When it came time to dance he worked the crowd very easily and was able to get a lot of people up and dancing for most of the night. In addition to the music Marcel was great at hosting roles like the entrance of the bridal party, first dances, cake cutting ceremony, and tossing of the bouquet. He seemed very professional and experienced when organizing the different aspects of the reception but was not overwhelming and also let you enjoy your night. He was great and we'd highly recommend him for your wedding.!! "

"Just wanted to tell you again how MUCH we all loved your music and hosting at my daughter Kelly's and new husband Wayne's wedding in Sargentville on June 20. Though Kelly knew what she wanted, I had my doubts about a DJ party with half the attendees in the "older group." Who knew these guys would go non-stop for two ENTHUSIASTIC hours under your guidance!-and with so much energy, such good moves, and such fervent "YMCAs" and "SHOUTs"? To a person, all said, "Best wedding and party EVER!" Lots of people helped, but you and your professional, but oh-so-easy, manner was the topping on the evening. BIG thanks!!!! "

Dave did a great job at listening to what we wanted and making it fun! We incorporated some traditional aspects of wedding receptions and left out what didn't need to be done again.

"Dave, we cannot express the amount of gratitude we have for the amazing job you did on our wedding day!!! You were reliable and I could trust you would take excellent care and consideration on our big day. You arrived at the church in a timely manner and I loved how you started the music and faded it out as appropriate at the perfect time and used our "special song" for us to walk down to :) I really appreciate the mix you used during the reception! You kept it going strong and there was honestly not one song we didn't like! As we looked around everyone was constantly smiling! Music is so important to us and I think people feel things through music-- you did such an excellent job! Everyone from the kiddos to adults had an amazing time! Your announcements kept it fun and the guests had some good laughs! I had many guests comment on your impeccable job and you were so worth it! I can't imagine anyone else being our DJ on our special day and you really made it personalized and "us." You thought of every little thing and made sure it was exactly as we wanted it. When I thought I may have forgotten something with the craziness of the wedding planning, you were extremely professional and timely in contacting myself, or anyone you could that would know exactly what we wanted. The music you used wasn't the normal, predictable, cheesy wedding songs, they were unique songs everyone enjoyed! I can't say how many times people said, "oh my gosh I love this song!" or "this is my song! This DJ is awesome!" Thank you for your professionalism, amazing sound quality, laughs, lights, dancing, and fun!! Our wedding day wouldn't have been nearly as perfect as it was without you there to help us! Thank you!!

He played everything from the 60s to current - country and rock. When family and friends had a request, Dave was right on top of it and played it as soon as the current song was over. He was sure to have everyone on their feet during the reception and he had great success. We highly nrecommend him for wedding and reception services!
