Best DJ on the Gulf Coast
Steven was absolutely an amazing DJ and made our wedding reception so much fun! Our dance floor was packed the entire night, and we actually had our guests begging for “just one more song” at the end of the evening. Steven was very flexible in terms of our music choices and was able to find some pretty unique songs that we requested. His online planning system was incredibly helpful, and made planning the music for our reception much easier. He was excellent to work with and extremely professional. I could not recommend him more highly!
Simply Phenomenal. Highly Recommend
Melodies with Memories was phenomenal. The owner & DJ, Steven Mathews, was the best DJ we have ever experienced. My husband and I wanted a no-fuss but extremely fun reception. Steven helped us deliver that. Every single person I have spoken to, has told us that we had the most fun wedding ever. Steven spent as much time with we wanted, planning our big day. With just one meeting, we were able to plan out the entire reception timeline and Greg gave us great advice every time. As we wanted everything from Weird Al Yankovich’s “Yoda” for my 7 year old nephew to specific songs from the 80’s, 90’s and current for our friends and of course Frank Sinatra for the older crowd—we wanted quite a wide variety of songs. Not only did Steven have all of the songs, but the way he sequenced them was genius. He literally kept the dance floor full the entire time.
One last thing. Steven is pretty low key. He does a great job announcing what you want him to announce (the entrance, the cake cutting, etc) but he isn’t out there clowning around. We didn’t want that. He is 100% focused on keeping the party going, which is exactly what we did want. The music spoke for itself and didn’t need anything extra.
Hiring Melodies with Memories was the best decision we made for the entire wedding. We highly recommend him!
What a Memorable Evening
We interviewed multiple DJs and were immediately struck by Steven’s experience and professionalism. We made it clear that our No. 1 priority from the DJ was having a packed dance floor, and that we would be relying on him to accomplish that. My wife and I have divergent musical tastes, and neither of us would be very good at creating a playlist that would keep a mixed group at a wedding on the dance floor. We gave Stevern a handful of “must plays” but then said the rest was up to him, and he came through. By the end of the night, when the lights came on, the floor was still packed, as it had been all night.
A Joy to work with….
DJ Steven was an absolute joy to work with. His sound system is amazing. Any song you want he will make sure he has it and you can pre-plan as much of your event as you like. We got many compliments from guests on the quality of his work. People were interested in getting his info from us to book him for their own events. We are so happy we chose Steven and so were all of our guests!! Our wedding was a blast and we owe that to Melodies with Memories and Steven.
Can I also just add, that my wedding happened to fall on a weekend that we got 11 inches of rain. (If you knew me and my luck that would not surprise you!!)There were many obstacles that presented at the last minute due to the weather and Steven was so flexible and you’d never know how much commotion was going on behind the scenes (trolley broke down, guests were late, issues with the tent, etc). Steven was so professional and we felt totally comfortable knowing that Steven was taking care of our guests in the function room while we were dealing with the many other issues. He is worth every penny. You will be glad that you chose Steven for your event. I would not normally take time out of my schedule to write a review but I honestly would like other couples to know what a gem Steven is and hope he is available for their wedding date. We really lucked out. Book him early if you can……….
Can’t Thank Enough
We cannot express enough what a wonderful job Steven did as the DJ at our wedding! From the very start of the planning process, he was responsive and helpful in insuring that our wedding went exactly as we wanted. He made sure to play exactly the types of music that we desired and to avoid the things we asked him not to play. Our dance floor was full all night thanks to Steven’s perceptive DJ skills. He also provided the uplighting for our reception and did a great job transitioning from dinner to dancing. He was always professional and made sure that the night was all about us – not him. He did an excellent job MC-ing and stuck to the plan we came up with together prior to the event. The price was very reasonable and definitely worth every penny!!
