Testimonials 2013

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.

"Dave was the DJ at my New Years Eve wedding last week, and I couldn't have asked for better! We weren't very picky in our music selection other than the ceremony music, and really gave him just some suggestions for kinds of music we would like played, then let him roll with it. It was great! The dinner music was loud enough to be heard, but didn't overwhelm, then during the dancing he did a great job playing mostly fun, upbeat dance songs, but incorporated a few slow songs as well. It was exactly what we were looking for. If you want more input into what is played, he's more than willing to listen and play exactly what you want as well. I would definitely recommend his services! Thanks Dave! "

Kara & John Mercier
"My fiancee and I did not intend on having a DJ at our 40 guest wedding reception until 4 months prior to our day. We were nervous about selecting vendors as this was a destination wedding for us, and didn't have the ability to rely on friends/family recommendations, nor would we be able to meet with them ahead of time. Upon our first inquiry to Dionne Entertainment, Dave was so responsive, reaching out immediately with a variety of resources to help us make our decisions that much easier! He was incredible on our wedding day! He managed the timing and flow of our reception, got every guests from 1 to 90 out of their seats, played EVERY request we had, and even danced along behind the booth himself! Dave came completely prepared - including providing additional lighting that came in handy at the last minute. We also had a few timing adjustments and Dave managed them professionally on our behalf to ensure a smooth event. We have nothing but good things to say and are so thrilled that Dave was our DJ - thanks Dave!! "

"Dave Dionne was the DJ at our wedding in York, Maine. Being out-of-towners hosting a destination wedding in Maine, it was so easy to work w/ Dave. He was extremely responsiveness, and invited us into his house for our first sit down to review wedding details, and because of his good relationship with all of the local vendors, we hardly had to do anything other than show up! He played all of our specified songs exactly as requested and played a great selection of music throughout the evening that had the guests dancing. He also chose some fun songs which yielded great photo opportunities! "

"Our first experience with Dave was several years ago at a friends wedding. We both had sore feet the next day from dancing all night! When we decided to get married up in Maine, we knew that Dave Dionne would help us throw the party of our lives, and he certainly didn't let us down. He was extremely easy to work with, flexible, and knew all the right moments when words were necessary and when to just let the music play. Our guests raved about him after the reception, and were actually mad when the party was over. We can't thank Dave enough for making our wedding so incredibly fun and memorable! ! "

Thanks again Joe for doing a bang-up job!! ! "
