First dance song?

John made an evolution dance for us and it was awesome. We practiced for weeks.

How did your wedding musicians keep the party going?

DJ John knew exactly how to read the dance floor. His motto" I promise to keep you dancing all night long" is the truth. Awesom job DJ John.

DJ or Band interaction with the wedding guests? Numbers exchanged?

DJ John asked everyone for requests but played the ones he knew would work. We put our faith in him 100% and every one loved him.

Lost in this moment

How did your wedding musicians keep the party going?

My husband and I had the pleasure of having John as our DJ and Master of Ceremonies during our wedding last Saturday, June 5th, 2010. He was PHENOMENAL. We cannot express enough how great of a job he did with our wedding. Honestly, we had no doubts about him after only two face-to-face meetings, but he still managed to surprise us by exceeding our expectations.

We experienced a torrential downpour right as our outside ceremony was scheduled to begin, and John immediately stepped up and handled the rearranging of our ceremony to have our ceremony in the same location as our reception site. He eased my mind as I prepared to walk down the isle into a completely different situation than what was originally planned. He collaborated with all of our vendors, pastor, wedding coordinator, and those in charge of our reception hall to transform a potential disaster into a breath-taking ceremony that was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. John provided the music for our ceremony and timed each song exactly how I wanted, which made our entire event absolutely perfect.

We also had a bit of a fiasco with our cake and those responsible for providing it, and John handled it flawlessly. He's providing pictures of our cake so that we can address our cake situation accordingly, and he kept us up-to-date on their late arrival and poor product without making us panic about the outcome. Even in a situation where he wasn't required to get involved, John still took it upon himself to help us out in any way possible. What a guy :)

As far as his DJ services, John is in a category far above all others. He honored every single song request that I provided beforehand, which says a lot considering how many songs I requested. He is not bluffing when he advertises that he will keep you "dancing all night long"! Most of our wedding guests NEVER left the dance floor. Every single song he chose was a hit, and we had countless compliments from our guests on what an amazing entertainer he was. I already have a handful of people that want to use him at their next big event. WAY TO GO JOHN!

Furthermore, John has a flawless personality that shines just as bright as his fantastic MC talents. He says the right thing at the right time to make everyone laugh, and can make light of any situation he encounters. He was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we can honestly say that he is not only a great DJ, but also a great friend that we will continue to keep in touch with :)

To all the brides-to-be: You WILL NOT be disappointed with John Padula as your MC for your special day. His prices are extremely reasonable and his services are fantastic and completely surpass the competition. It will be the best decision you will have made for your wedding, besides deciding to marry your soul mate of course!

To John: YOU ARE THE BEST! Thanks again for making our wedding so incredible from the very start to the absolute end. Our day wouldn't have been as enjoyable as it was without you there, and we appreciate everything you did more than you will ever know.

Our sincerest thanks,
Steven and Ashley Fulem

Butterfly Kisses

How did your wedding musicians keep the party going?

DJ John started played all the 80's classic rock and disco that made the whole group come to the dance floor. He incorporated some newer songs in for the younger guests and had every song that was requested. His style and personality really spilled over to all my guests

DJ John made it a point to meet evey guest that came in the door. He personally introdeced himself and made everyone feel comfortable

Favorite wedding reception song & dance?

All of them. It was Fun
Dear John,

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You did an amazing job at our wedding reception and we are blown away at how fun and smooth you made everything. From keeping us on schedule, getting us drinks, keeping the dance floor packed, and playing so many of the songs we were hoping to hear you really did it all. Everyone has told us what a fun wedding it was and we couldn't agree more. We had the time of our lives singing at the top of our lungs to some pretty amazing early 90'r rap songs and have no one but you to thank for that! You were so professional throughout the entire planning process and that evening. You are a very approachable person which made planning so easy. We couldn't be happier with or decision to use you for our DJ. We already have and will continue to refer business your way. Thanks again!

disappointment

DJ or Band interaction with the wedding guests? Numbers exchanged?

This is one wedding vendor I would never recommend to any of my friends. I got a great price on DJ John’s services, I was lucky enough to sign a contract before prices went up. I think that my wedding was completely neglected because he was not making as much money off of me. He did not seem to want to take into consideration any of my ideas for the reception. A month before my wedding some unforeseen circumstances came about for DJ John and he was not able to DJ my wedding. I was understanding of the situation and let him provide a replacement. From the beginning of our meetings I had a feeling that DJ John did not want to do my wedding and would have a fill in… but I had no idea he would have me pay someone so awful. DJ John seemed to have all the confidence in the world for his replacement. This guy was a complete failure and put no work into my wedding. Everything was printed out on a piece of paper and he still couldn’t get it right (i.e.; songs, names, announcements). The worst part of this experience was re-planning the whole “DJ” process a month before my wedding with the “new” guy. I had no time for this, but I did it. And thank god I was able to because I don’t think DJ John did anything to get the new DJ up to speed for my wedding. This company was a complete disappointment.

"Thanks for the great job at our wedding. Everyone, young and old, couldn't say enough about you.. We were so happy to see so many people dancing and staying longer just to hear the music. We've always felt that the music is the most important part of a wedding, and you filled the role perfectly."

If I ain't got you by Alicia Keys

How did your wedding musicians keep the party going?

DJ John was very organized from step one. He met us and put together the reception planner and made sure we all followed his lead on the day of the reception. Everything went so smooth and unrehearsed and his choice of music to keep people dancing was awesome. He also has a great personality and is very accomodating.

DJ John was right out there with us when he wasn't doing something behind his booth. He even danced with my mother who usually sits all night. He is Fantastic
