Wonderful service! Everyone had a great time thanks to Willie. He was able to get everyone to participate in the activities and dancing. Before the wedding he was very professional and helped to keep us track of deadlines. Willie provided a good mix of music so there was something for everyone. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend using Drop the Mic Entertainment. More...

Will was amazing! People were dancing all night long! Drop The Mic’s website is so easy to use. The online forms makes planning out the reception and music choices so organized and hassle-free. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. I’m so happy we went with Drop The Mic and Will for our wedding!! More...

Willie was recommended to us by our engagement photographer! He was 100% the right choice for us! Prior to the wedding, we had many unexpected last minute changes (weather issues caused foundations damageto our original venue and we needed to scramble to find a new venue/ catering/ update guests etc just 4 weeks before our big day! ) My husband and I were both graduate student with a lot on our plates at the time. Willie was very flexible, professional, reachable and genuinely invested in making sure our big day was as stress free as possible! During the reception he used our "timeline" as a guide, he did not rush us, he did a wonderful job keeping us updated and on track! Our photographer even commented on how good he was to work with! I would recommend Willie from Drop the Mic Entertainment to anyone looking to add personalized touches (we loved our personalized monogrammed name light) a stress free evening, and a full dance floor! We can not thank him enough!! More...

Did a great job MCing our wedding. Crowd-pleasers kept people on the dance floor while avoiding cheesiness. Like many weddings, ours had a big range of ages and backgrounds, but there was something for everybody. Even got my parents on the dance floor--quite an achievement. Offered a webpage that allowed us to easily create "must-play," "play, time-permitting," and "do not play" lists. Honored our wishes of no Celine Dion and no country, probably against the pressure of many of our guests. More...

Drop the Mic was absolutely phenomenal. We booked Willie as soon as we met him because he was such a great person! His personality is perfect for a DJ! He played every single thing we asked and handled all of our "weird" situations so professionally. He really got our crowd involved when we came in the room and made us feel so special! Highly recommended! More...

Due to planning from out of town, we did not meet with anyone in person. However, when I spoke to Willie over the phone, he was extremely helpful and attentive. Their planning tool was very straight forward and easy to use. Come wedding day, I had no concerns. DJ Karlzel was great! He was very friendly and handled our guests requests very well. More...

We had DJ Allan at our wedding on Saturday. I loved the music he was playing and he kept people on the dance floor all night long! ! Very impressed with the music. I was a little disappointed in the way he announced events. The mics just weren’t loud enough people couldn’t hear. It took awhile for people to realize the anniversary dance was happening because of this. I also asked for the DJ to make a few announcements about my caramel apple bar so the guest knew to make an apple and take it home as a favor. He never announced anything about it & by the time I realized it was too late. I just wish he had been more on top of our announcements! More...

Could not have asked for a better DJ for my wedding! Will was always super quick to respond to my emails and assist with any questions I had. I went into my wedding with a timeline that I really wanted to stick to. I learned that being the bride, it's hard to keep track of time but thankfully I had Will there to make sure we stuck to the schedule! I didn't have to worry about missing anything. I had many guests tell me how great the music was - Will kept the party going. 10/10 recommend. Thank you Will! More...

When you book a service as important as the music at a wedding reception you often have to wait until the day of the even to find out if you make a good choice. Well...from start to finish our DJ Carlzel was absolutely amazing -- always totally professional, fantastic sound system, accommodating when someone asked about a song...just absolutely made the evening wonderful. We would definitely recommend this company and him in particular for your event any time. I have another daughter with a wedding in her future and Drop The Mic is already on our list of who we'll be using. Thank you, Carlzel! More...

Willie was the perfect DJ for our wedding. He was very responsive from the beginning, was able to accommodate all of our music requests and special requests for mixing/transitions. His MC work was equally impressive and helped us stick to our wedding timeline with a natural flow, no awkward pauses or interruptions with transitions. Perfect ability to read the room and give the party what it needed music wise. Very accommodating to moves and last minute changes in plan.

From day one, Will was beyond professional and extremely flexible when it came to meeting with us and what we could do with the wedding. He was very easy going and never asked us to change our ideas or told us no. Any idea that we had, he was willing to work with. The day of the wedding, not only did he do his job, but he also worked with the staff who was serving our food in order to fix a time issue. I am so glad that we went with Drop the Mic Entertainment, it was money well spent. He made our wedding day one that everyone will remember. More...

Furthermore, we have had many compliments from guests on the music selection and the amazingly fun atmosphere. I would recommend Drop the Mic over and over again. More...

Exceptional value (5 star) for a great cost ($)!

The DJ companies you pay for generic, they've done this for the 150th time, wash and repeat type of DJ. Not the case with Will. He was part of the family and truly treated our wedding as if it were your own. By not going through a DJ company you do run the risk of no back-up DJ, however, Will smashed that concern right off the bat.

It was a true pleasure working with him. He was responsive and accommodated our requests without hesitation, dressed professionally, arrived promptly and handled the flow of the night perfectly! He didn't emcee too much either and read the room and the audience to make sure he set the perfect vibe.

You would be foolish not to use Will !

Willie did a fantastic job! He was so easy to communicate with and made the entire process go smoothly. He really did a great job keeping the guests involved and always made sure that there were guests on the dance floor by playing songs that everyone liked. I've been to weddings where the DJ didn't stand out or wasn't in tune with the feel of the wedding but I have to say that wasn't the case at all. They were very affordable as well which was definitely another plus! I would definitely use Drop the Mic Entertainment again! More...

Willie was an excellent DJ and MC. He was eager to work with us and listened to what we wanted before our wedding. He gave us a very competitive rate because our wedding was on a Friday, and was not pushy at all in the time between our initial inquiry with him and our decision to hire him (I had another DJ email me every day even after I said we weren't interested).

On the actual day of the wedding, Willie worked hard to keep our schedule of events moving. He made a few recommendations to get us back on track when we arrived to the reception late, and made sure to check in and remind us of the time throughout the reception so that we could make sure we got to the events on time.

Willie also has a very easy-to-use website where most of your planning for the reception and music can be done. He worked in our music requests and had people dancing all night, even though our reception was held outside on one of the hottest days of the month.

I found Drop the Mic on weddingwire and based on their amazing reviews decided I would contact them. Within the same day Willie contacted us. He was so helpful and worked with our schedule since we were planning our Ohio wedding from Chicago. He was so organized and listened to everything we wanted. On the day of the wedding he was so flexible and accommodating. I have heard horror stories of DJs mixing up songs and missing key elements but not him he nailed everything perfectly. Our dance floor was never empty, he kept the energy going! My favorite part though was the fact that before he would announce anything he made sure we were ready! Willie thank you for making our wedding so amazing. More...
