I just got married a couple weeks ago at the end of July 2014. And we hired Marc because of the great reviews he already had. One thing's for sure...he deserves all the good things you can read about him. He is very organized, friendly, and extremely accommodating and helpful. We met with him in the beginning of our planning process, and he was very helpful from the get go. While my wife and I were still trying to figure out how a wedding is supposed to happen in the first place, he helped through even while we had no idea what we would need from him yet. Then throughout the whole planning process he was always just one email or phone call away if we had questions. I tried to set a couple meetings with him as we were getting closer to the wedding date and had to cancel them because of family matters, both times he was totally understanding and helped me reschedule; never sounding condescending or annoyed. He was able to make our wedding reception lots of fun. All my guests will remember that night for a very long time. I am from West Africa and had some family flying in and I asked Marc if we could incorporate some of our African music for them to enjoy and feel at home during the wedding. He never heard these songs before, but he was able to mix them along with all the good old school, hot40 hits, and the lovely traditional tunes. He mixed traditional and modern like it was meant to be together and kept the dance floor filled! Marc was also a great MC, and worked with the vendors to start the different elements of the reception (dinner, cake etc.) when they were ready. He spoke clearly and audibly and came to us to find out when we were ready for our parts (first dance, garter and bouquet toss etc). He was cool but still professional throughout the night. I had to write a great review to thank Marc for his work. He deserves your business and he has the knowledge, the experience, and the skills to make your wedding reception an unforgettable one.

Marc came highly recommended to us, but was already booked for our wedding day. In his place he put us in contact with one of his top rated colleagues Rob Hanna. Rob was the perfect match for our needs. The bride and groom as well as the majority of their guests were in their upper 30s to 60s and we wanted to set a tone that was reflective of this. Rob was perfect at keeping the flow of events while not being too prominent. Additionally, he was extremely timely, coming early to set up and loading out prior to our turning the venue back over. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

You did an awesome job at our wedding and kept your promise of having everyone dancing! I wouldn't have changed a thing. I plan on recommending you to anyone I know getting married etc. in need of a DJ.

Marc was absolutely incredible at our wedding. He always returned my calls and emails promptly and took the time to meet with us before the wedding to get the final details together. He played all of the music on our request list and kept it to the (narrow) list of genres that we told him we wanted. He expertly saved us from a potentially very embarrassing situation by not allowing a drunk guest of ours to make a toast by politely explaining that there wasn't enough time for another toast. Many guests mentioned how great the music was and how much fun they had, and a lot of the credit goes to Marc. Definitely recommend if your goal is some good old fashioned, classy fun.

Marc was great! He kept our guests dancing all night long! Our guests raved about our cocktail hour in which we had a separate set up in a garden area. The music was Louis Armstrong and like classics. It set the tone for our classic and traditional wedding. For agree dinner dancing the party truly began. Marc was also a great MC! Thanks for making our wedding so memorable!

Marc is a very engaging DJ who listens and who quickly understood the wedding atmosphere we desired. He met with us in person and he was very attentive as well as punctual. Communication between us was timely and responsive. He worked well with our wedding coordinator and was able to provide last minute sound services during the ceremony (outdoors). His online music planning questionnaire was extremely helpful as it allowed us the time to think and discuss our music selection and "do not play list". During the wedding he was attentive to the guests and the mood of the wedding where he played the most appropriate songs to get people to dance. He knew when to slow it down or pick it up. Overall our expectations were met and we really enjoyed working with Marc. We would highly recommend him to any future couple looking for an experienced and reliable DJ.

Marc was wonderful. He was by far my most responsive vendor, and he had a great and very complete questionnaire. Marc met with us in person once and called multiple times before the wedding. The music the night of was a total hit! He had everyone, young and old, on the dance floor. It was the perfect mix of classic songs and top 40 hits. His price could also not be beat- Marc even charged us less than he could have for setting up early, before the ceremony.

In the planning phase, Marc was extremely helpful and responsive to my emails. On the day of, I could not have been more happy with his professionalism and skill. My wedding was very formal and Marc was able to keep the formality while also creating a fun party atmosphere. I was most impressed with his ability to read the crowd and what songs were and weren't popular. I would absolutely recommend to friends.

I am an event coordinator in Denver, Colorado and did the event coordinating for my cousin's wedding in December 2013. I have worked with numerous DJ's in the industry from California to the east coast, but have never been as impressed as I was with Marc. He is very professional, flexible, responsive and reliable! I was impressed by his willingness to go above an beyond as well as his positive, can-do attitude. I would highly recommend and use Marc for any event!

Marc was great to work with from start to finish. He really listened and understood the mood we were going for. He was on time, professional, and really got the guests dancing. He has an online portal that was helpful in getting us to think about specific things - e.g. introductions, when the cake cutting would happen, etc. He's got great experience to help brides think through all those details. I have already recommended him to friends and family. Truly top notch. I can't say enough nice things!

It’s extremely rare for me to write a review, whether I’ve had good service or bad service, but when it comes to Marc, I felt compelled to write something…he was just that great. Getting married at the Willard, my wife and I wanted to find a DJ that would play songs the crowd could certainly enjoy, yet matching the environment of the hotel. From the initial interview, Marc was our guy…we read many positive reviews on him and agree with all of his highlights. Most importantly, at least for us, he knows how to read a crowd, while keeping in line with your music tastes. Throughout the night we were told how great the music was…and it’s really all because of Marc. He was very easy to work with; he has high quality sound equipment; a strong voice to introduce the wedding party and move things along; he played the music we wanted; and of course, catered to the crowd (we had a full spectrum of ages, so, it was not an easy task). For me, one of the most memorable moments of the night was the string of songs he played at the tail end of dinner leading into and finishing off the toasts – I couldn’t have picked any better myself…they really fit the mood. And so it goes back to playing the songs you like, while fitting the situation at hand, which I can’t stress how important that is in a wedding DJ. Marc worked with us to find our musical tastes and he took off with it on the day…not one song was played that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. No question about it, he made the reception memorable…couldn’t be happier!

Marc Augenbraum is an extremely skilled and professional DJ who helped our wedding ceremony and reception go off exactly the way we’d hoped. He listens and really tries to put the couple’s plan into action. He quickly responded to questions via phone and email and took the time to come meet us in person. He helped us fill in the blanks -- from how much music we'd need for the wedding party processional to providing sample playlists of prelude music. Marc’s great at bringing and moving his own equipment and making it work with the space provided. The sound quality was solid and the wireless mics (which we used for toasts and such) were also high quality. He also easily accommodated some quirks of the venue (second floor, and the speakers needed to face a particular direction). Marc worked according to the timeline we gave him, worked well with our DOC and other vendors, and pulled it off in a way that made it seem natural. He easily handled our special requests, like time to sing happy birthday to two of our guests. He directed the attention of our guests to special moments (like the cutting of the cake) but remained unobtrusive. Perhaps most importantly, Marc read the crowd and kept everyone on the dance floor. We opted for an all-passed tapas reception instead of a seated dinner, and Marc was able to judge which music to play when folks were eating that was fun and allowed for dancing, but didn't drown out conversation. Later, when it was all about the dance floor, Marc made sure that all generations were having a great time. We gave Marc a “must play” list of songs, all of which he played, but he did an amazing job of reading the crowd and playing whatever got people dancing (a priority for us). We would highly recommend Marc. His fees are more than reasonable for the high quality of his services, and he was able to work with us regarding our budget to eliminate extras like uplighting that we didn't really need.
