Our wedding was October 10th of this year and Matt was a fantastic DJ to work with. He really takes the time to get to know the bride and groom which meant a lot to us. My fiance met with him the first time because I was out of town and he wanted to get a feel for how Matt was. The two of them really hit it off. Then I met with Matt a few weeks later to book his service for our wedding. Before our meeting, he emailed me his contract so that I could review it and ask any questions if I had concerns. At our meeting we went over the contract, which was very detailed, and then we started to go over the possible timeline for our reception. Matt was always very easy to contact. Any time I emailed with questions, he responded very quickly. He worked with us on song ideas and gave us lots of tips and feedback from his experience. He was also open to the ideas we had. At the reception, he was such a stress reliever. As soon as we arrived to our reception, he met us outside to discuss how the night would start off. He had taken the time to snap pictures of the rooms set up so that he could show them to the wedding party to better help them understand where we would be sitting and how we would enter the room. We really appreciated this extra step. Before the speeches/toasts started, Matt took the time to come speak with our best man and maid of honor to show them how the mic worked and how to hold it to get the best volume and quality. I know our best man and maid of honor felt a lot more comfortable when it came time to give their speeches because of this. Throughout the night, Matt would seek us out to let us know what things were coming up next, ie: cake cutting, first dances, bouquet toss & garter toss, and the dollar dance. He did a fantastic job playing guest requests as well as songs to get people out on the dance floor. He even took the time to get out and teach group dances such as The Wobble and several of our guests commented about how they loved that he did that. Matt played a great mix of music, and our dance floor was never empty. Many times it seemed like we needed a bigger dance floor because everyone was on it! I strongly recommend Noji's Wedding Entertainment Services to everyone. Matt made the night so stress free. He went above and beyond for our reception.
Oh my GOODNESS! Working with Matt as our dj has been one of the biggest highlights of our wedding. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone planning a wedding or any event for that matter. I'm going to admit, we had a tough crowd at our wedding (mostly older people) but we have gotten such wonderful compliments about him and several of our engaged friends have already asked us for his information. He kept the party going, he was energetic, and my husband and I had a total blast. And not only that, but through this whole experience, Matt went above and beyond for us. He kept in touch through the whole process, always asking if there was anything he could do for us, and was always very easy to get in contact with. At our wedding reception, our event manager had forgotten to order our champagne and Matt went out of his way during dinner to run over to the store and grab the champagne for us. Seriously! This is how phenomenal he is! On top of being a wonderful dj, we feel like we have also come out of our wedding experience with a great friend. We will be recommending him to all of our friends and family, and using him again for all of our future events! Thank you for helping make our wedding so perfect, Matt!
I worked with Matt on my friend's wedding. She was very busy planning the wedding, trying to finish school, and running a sorority, so I helped her out by finding the dj. Initially I liked the basic $400 wedding package because it covered everything the bride needed and didn't have a ton of money to spend on the wedding. It was by far the cheapest out there. However, once I started corresponding with Matt, I realized why he has so many amazing reviews. He's kind, personable, and willing to do whatever to make sure you have an amazing wedding. I liked that he was ok with me communicating with him, and not the bride the majority of the time. A lot of other places only wanted to communicate with the bride, but Matt understood why I was the correspondent and was more than happy to oblige. He is very professional and a great dj. He had everyone on the dance floor and made sure we all had a good time. I definitely recommend him!
Over 100% recommend DJ Noji for your next event. DJ Noji kindly listens to everyone, makes them feel important, and then asks you (the bride and groom) what you want. A few weeks before the wedding DJ Noji conference called my husband and I to go over our wedding details, order of events, and song selections. You never know what you're missing until you talk with a professional, who knew you had to think of a cake cutting song?! We were so blessed by the energy and excitement Matt brought to our wedding. Our friends never left the dance floor, we laughed as we sang along to our favorite backstreet boys songs, and everyone cried as we took the floor for our first dance. Matt made the day magical as we danced until our feel were sore. Hire him and you won't be sorry, I can promise you that. Thank you Matt for being the best!
Matt is AWESOME and worth every penny! I told him he should charge more. Of all of my wedding vendors, Matt was the most organized and prepared. He met with us ahead of time multiple times, he was always available, he came through with everything we requested of him, and on top of all that, he's a very honest and down to earth guy. He's not trying to scam you or maximize profits. He enjoys what he does and he does it very well. Honestly he is more than a DJ, he's used to helping coordinate the entire wedding reception also. We used him primarily as a DJ since we had a wedding coordinator, but I have no doubt he does great coordinating also, as he came up with most of our reception timeline, which I gave to our coordinator. I'm extremely happy with our choice to use Matt, it was so affordable and profesional, thank you!
Unfortunately, I had a very similar experience to Jessica C below. My parents chose Gateway DJs for my wedding. Rich had promised them that he would be the DJ for the wedding. My husband and I met with Rich several months before our wedding and discussed song preferences, specific things we wanted ("Anniversary" dance, beatmixing of songs) and things we didn't want ( a DJ that talked more than played music). However, 2 days before the wedding we get a call from "DJ Ron" that he would be our DJ instead. Ron said that he had talked to Rich, but when we arrived he didn't have our entrance song! There was no beatmixing, there was no "Anniversary dance" and he spent the evening hitting on my bridesmaids. Many of my friends are getting married this year and they know from my experience not to choose Gateway.
I cannot recommend Gateway more highly! Rich personally was the DJ at my wedding and it was so much fun! The crowd really got into it and had almost as much fun as my husband and I!! I asked Gateway to do my wedding on short notice, and also gave them several requests and what not to play and so on..I felt pretty bad with as many emails as I was sending. But everything turned out perfectly and all my requests fulfilled! My friends were still talking about my DJ after I came back from my honeymoon! Rich got to know my husband and I only in a few short months, but with the way he personalized our wedding, he felt like an old friend! I definitely recommend this company and will use them in the future for any occasion where i need their services!
Matt AKA DJ Noji was incredible! Very organized and focused on us and what we wanted for our wedding, he took the time to meet with us several times to make sure we felt comfortable along the way and kept us updated via email and text. He did a great job of laying out how the reception would flow and helped to select the right music and offered a lot of great advice based on his experience. Great on the mic as well! Two thumbs up! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I couldn't be happier about our decision to have Matt be the DJ for our wedding!! He is a great person, VERY organized, and made the day perfect! He went out of his way to make our day amazing! All of the guests were asking if he was our good family friend and how we found him, which goes to show how personable he is. Again, you will not go wrong picking him to be your DJ for any occasion!
DJ Noji was first class! We hired him for our event and will definitely be using him again! He showed up plenty early, was set up in plenty of time and did an amazing job. He was great with the guests and was very sensitive to the needs we had with the event. He was very energetic, yet not too 'cheesy', which is always a concern with DJs. Highly, highly recommended!
