Flounder was AMAZING! He was very professional, easy to work with, and our wedding party was just the way we wanted it! He was very communicative leading up to our wedding and took the time to understand what we wanted. He did a great job getting our guests up a dancing, young and old, and played a great mix of music that made our wedding party vision come to life! Perhaps the best compliment is that I would hire him again in a heartbeat!!

DJ Flounder was a breeze to work with, he came in with great ideas and was ready to listen to any of mine. His website allowed me access to my music library for the wedding and also had an easy to use format that made planning out the reception/ceremony music stress-free. DJ Flounder kept the party moving transitioning from song to song seamlessly, all my friends loved him. I would recommend him and his team to anyone looking to keep the dance floor packed.

I cannot say enough good things about DJ Flounder. He was fun, professional, and easy to talk to during the planning process (my now-husband talked to him for 10 minutes and wanted to buy him a beer) and he absolutely blew me away during our wedding. Because of DJ Flounder, we had DOZENS of guests say it was the most fun wedding they'd ever attended. The dance floor was packed the entire time, and none of us had ever seen so many people dancing at a wedding. My mom loves to dance and was worried that our DJ wouldn't play music that she liked, but he managed to satisfy everyone's taste without playing a single song that we disliked. Before the wedding, he created a planning website for us so we could add must play and do not play songs and invite guests to submit requests, which was awesome- and he honored those requests on our big day. He also brought beautiful lighting and a photo booth that was a huge hit. I felt like he truly went above and beyond for our wedding to make it the best night of my life. I wish I could give him ALL the stars. HIRE DJ FLOUNDER!
Kim & Richard
Flounder DJ'ed my wedding over the weekend and I couldn't have been happier. He and his team showed up to set up their equipment, photobooth, and uplighting in no time. Their professionalism and confidence was immense and put everyone around them at ease. He and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with all the way around. Thanks for everything Flounder :)
Natalie & Devin
We hired Flounder based on his amazing mixing skills. We did give him a list of songs that we wanted played, but explained to him that we wanted him to take charge and do exactly what he loves- DJ! Flounder was the absolute highlight of our wedding day! The dance floor was on fire the entire night and was never empty! I have already had two good friends ask me for his information so that they can book him! I cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so fantastic. It was everything we ever dreamed of- thanks to you! :)
Rachel & Jeff
Flounder was AMAZING!!! He was so easy to work with, so easy going, helped us through every step along the way and made it the most fun wedding we (and any of our guests) had ever been to! He was so receptive to our "wish list" of songs and playlists, provided suggestions where we needed help, and even offered up alternatives based on all the details we went through. He was super flexible, willing to work with us, and made us feel totally comfortable and at ease. By far the best investment and we are SO SO SO thrilled with how everything turned out. People are STILL talking about his mix and our wedding was weeks ago!!
Alli & Mike
Bryan (Flounder) helped us throw the greatest party ever that reflected our tastes! After a few conversations about what we like, Bryan nailed the right mix of songs for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our guests filled the dance floor and consistently complimented the music and lighting. Flounder also was quick to make us custom tracks for our special dances. I would book him again if I had a big party and recommend him to anyone who wants to please a crowd of all ages.
Priscilla & Owen
We knew since we didn't have much in terms of entertainment lined up for our wedding that the DJ had to be stellar. We found that in DJ Flounder and his team. We love listening to his Throw Back Thursday sessions on 107.3 and were ecstatic to find out he was available to DJ our wedding! He was very personable and super easy to work with. He was able to tailor the music to the eclectic mix we like and kept our dance floor packed and had our guest still wanting more by the end. His set up, equipment and staff were very professional. Flounder also doubled great as the MC. We can't thank him enough and wish we could have him at all our parties!
Regina & Brittany
DJ Flounder is AMAZING! He DJ'd our wedding at Lansdowne Resort on 5/9/15 and we can't stop talking about it, he kept everyone, of all ages on the dance floor until the party ended. He was extremely responsive and gave us great input and recommendations on songs for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. I would highly recommend him for any occasion, you won't be disappointed!
Jennifer & Dave
DJ Flounder was an amazing wedding dj! I picked Flounder in particular because he was able to make the type of music I like (non dance-able music) into music people could dance to - and he really did deliver! He is incredibly responsive to email queries, and was very helpful in guiding my husband and I are towards what type of music we would like during the different stages of the wedding. His website was easy to use and helped my husband and I figure out what we needed to plan for. If we were impressed before the wedding with Flounder's professionalism and expertise, the actual day of blew us away. His set-up looks amazing (no folding table for him) and he kept the floor packed! Numerous people told us during/after the wedding how awesome the DJ was and how big of a difference it makes for the party. I would 100% recommend getting Flounder - you won't regret it!
Melissa & Jeff
DJ Flounder was amazing. He provided us with easy instructions to follow for giving him our basic music selections (Ceremony Entrances, First Dance, Father/Daughter, etc). He then built a song lineup based on those selections that was a perfect match. I was very impressed with his work given our significant changes in the lineup as the night went on. We had strings/modern classical to start, Sinatra type during dinner, and more club/dance to finish off the night strong. His team was professional, on time, and his equipment was top notch. I would recommend his additional LED light bars, we had a party hour at the end of the reception and they really made a great atmosphere on the dance floor. I would also recommend if you are doing a Party hour to let DJ Flounder pick the songs. He did an amazing job mixing and as we are from Vegas, he really made it feel like the most exciting club on the strip. I have been to a ton of weddings where the DJ and or Band lost the vibe and did not keep the night going. With DJ Founder this was not the case, we had 123 guests at our wedding and 6 hours later at the end of the reception around 90 were still on the dance floor going thanks to the great energy he created. I strongly recommend him for your next event.
Megan & Peter
If you ever have a question about your reception and cant decide on what you want Flounder will not only answer the question but make it 10 times better. We couldn't be more pleased with the music, lighting, and overall professionalism from Flouner and his team. I would recommend him to everyone!
Harry (Father Of The Groom)
If you're searching for a DJ that blends the right mix of music, hosting, atmosphere, and sound for your wedding, DJ Flounder is your man! From listening to our preferences during the planning stages to providing the right mix of songs for the different stages of the evening (cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing), Flounder created the perfect evening. In addition to providing DJ services, Flounder and his professional staff, setup the sound system for the ceremony and provided up-lighting for our reception hall. Flounder made the party come alive. We highly recommend DJ Flounder and his team.
Ashley & Jason
Flounder was the DJ at our wedding on October 5th, 2013. We asked a lot from Flounder and his crew, and they delivered flawlessly. Ashley and I had a lot of requests and questions leading up to the wedding, and Flounder knew all the right questions to ask and suggestions to make. Using the tools on the website Flounder provided was easy and put all the items that needed to be covered in one place. Flounder reviewed all of our song requests and provided expert guidance on items that Ashley and I were unsure of. We had a lot of requirements on the day of the wedding. At the outdoor ceremony, there were two officiants, an instrumental trio, a guitar, and a singer that all needed microphones. Flounder took care of all the details and the audio went off without a hitch. The cocktail hour was in a separate building that Flounder provided background music for, and to top it all off, the reception was in a third building. Flounder was the perfect emcee and DJ. Flounder kept us on schedule, and the songs he played kept the dance floor jumping all night long. The LED uplighting provided a classy ambiance to the room and it was a nice bonus that the lights were wireless so there weren't cables in the way. Ashley and I are extremely grateful to DJ Flounder for being an integral part in making our wedding day truly amazing. We highly recommend his services for any event.
Nina (Mother Of The Bride)
You guys were awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough for putting up with our crazy family. Your music selection was spot on target. I danced so much I didn't even get a chance to take my shoes off. Thanks again. mother of the bride, Nina
Emily & Harrison
We can't thank DJ Flounder enough for helping us throw the most fun wedding ever! Everything with the music was perfect and DJ Flounder was really helpful when planning everything beforehand. I couldn't have wished for a better wedding. I wish we could party like that every Friday.
Cathy & Chris
We highly recommend DJ Flounder for any event! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without him. Two weeks later guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how great the DJ was. He met with us a month before the wedding and thoroughly reviewed everything we wanted to have happen and all the music we wanted played at the wedding and met all of our requests and then some. We also used his lighting services which completely changed the look of the venue from dinner to dancing to cake cutting. His up lighting and modern DJ set up is part of the reason why the venue is now using our wedding pictures for their marketing pieces! DJ Flounder is also very flexible and took many song requests and quickly fulfilled them during the reception making for a fun, energetic party. We can't thank Flounder enough for making our wedding so memorable!!
Lauren & Matthew
I'm still in complete awe of how far DJ Flounder exceeded my expectations. First, my wife and I had a very limited budget which Flounder was more than willing to accommodate for. Second, He put my wife at complete ease at a time when she needed it most Third, all anyone could talk about after the ceremony was how incredible DJ Flounder was. His music selection was top notch and kept a steady flow throughout the whole ceremony. All in all, I highly recommend DJ Flounder for your special day or any special event.
Lauren & Lou
As a bride, one of the most important aspects of my wedding was for there to be awesome music and a fun dance party. DJ Flounder was the most amazing wedding DJ we could have ever asked for. He was organized, detail oriented, and did everything we asked with a smile. He met with us in person and went over all of our wishes, and he even has an online form you can fill out that outlines everything from transition songs, to dinner music, to party music. My wedding was out of town, and he flew 500+ miles down to Charleston SC to dj our wedding. I was beyond happy with him and would seriously recommend him to ANYONE looking for an amazing DJ! Best investment of the entire wedding by far! :o) THANK YOU DJ FLOUNDER!!
Jesse & Justin
Flounder was a wonderful DJ. He played all the songs I was hoping to hear and kept everyone dancing all night! People were ready to keep dancing when the party was over.
Mandie & Jim
I've put off writing a testimonial about Flounder because I wasn't sure how I was supposed to put into words how awesome he was (and how many people keep telling me that!). I knew I wanted to hire Flounder to DJ our wedding as soon as we started planning since we worked together many, many years ago and I knew we had similar taste in music. We knew he would do a great job, but we were blown away. He totally rocked it from start to finish. I literally couldn't sit down because he never played a song I didn't like! He even managed to make Oasis danceable for my husband, who challenged him to do so, of course, thinking he wouldn't be able to. He was able to get the exact vibe and mood we wanted for each portion-ceremony, cocktail & dinner and then of course, the three hours of nonstop dancing to everything from Biggie to Zac Brown Band to Miley Cyrus. We just wish we could hire him to do it all again!
Amber & Jeff
On my wedding day, so many things went wrong (mostly little things that only a bride would notice) but when people ask me, "What was the best part of your wedding day?" I can say without a doubt in my mind -- the music. DJ Flounder MADE my wedding. As I showed up right before the ceremony, the exact type of music I had requested to be playing before the ceremony was playing. The procession music started right on cue. The ceremony was short and sweet, and as we sealed our marriage with a kiss, he had the recessional music start up at the perfect time. As the introduction of the wedding party started, DJ Flounder had the music perfectly in tune with the bridesmaid/groomsmen combos that entered into our reception space. My sister, who was my maid of honor, wanted to be the first person to officially introduce my husband and me as "Mr. and Mrs." and Flounder handed her the mic and the guests applauded loudly as he cued up the song that I had requested for our intro at the perfect time. Every single detail I had requested was met. There's no way I could have been more satisfied with my music that day. Like I stated before, it was the most perfect, not to mention, flawless part of my wedding day. DJ Flounder was an absolute pleasure to work with. I will be sure to hire him for our vow renewals.
Joanna & George
DJ Flounder was the DJ at our wedding and we could not have been happier. He catered to the crowd and made sure we played music that guests of all ages enjoyed. We also had a Greek band and he was very flexible in working with them. He played several of his trademark mashups which the crowd loved. You will not be disappointed if you use him!!!!!! A PLUS!
Amy & Ian
We could not have asked for a better DJ! We had asked for a specific genre of music during the dinner reception by giving him a few sample songs. He was able to expand on our selections and did so beautifully. After dinner, he really got the crowd on the dance floor! For our first dance, the original song was a bit too long (as we didn't want to embarrass ourselves too much) so he was able to shorten the song for us. We'd definitely recommend him to any other couple looking for the perfect DJ!
Katie & Phil
Flounder is awesome! He and his team did a fantastic job at our wedding. He is talented and professional, and everyone enjoyed all the music, mash-ups, and dancing. He had to set up his equipment twice (outside for the ceremony and inside again for the reception) and he did it all seamlessly. Everything was perfect and we all had a blast! I would definitely recommend Flounder for all brides who want nothing but the best!
Danielle & Chad
Flounder did an incredible job of performing at our wedding. From the very start he was professional, and accommodating! He totally understood the feel i was looking for, to be the soundtrack to our special day. He came to scope out the venue on time, and ready to take notes about the location. The day of, equipment was set up perfectly, indoors, and out, and not conspicuous. I wanted a hip, casual, and carefree sound. I wanted cool, nontraditional aisle music - he got it. Modern remakes of old classics were a must - he got it. He placed my ideas for songs at the perfect time over the course of the night. Flounder even helped my family with a special surprise performer that I had no idea was going to be there! And when it came time to dance - the crowd loved every minute! I got SO many compliments from guests saying it was the best wedding they'd been to!
Josh & Libby
People always tell us they remember our wedding as one of the most fun weddings they ever attended. We credit DJ Flounder as the main reason. He had a great personality as the MC, and kept the party going until the last minute. He did a great job of taking songs we'd selected, and making them "Danceable." He also did a great job picking some music of his own that he knew would keep the room dancing. We was easy to work with, accommodating and I have recommended him to every friend who has subsequently gotten married. I assure you, choosing any other DJ would be a mistake.
