We absolutely LOVED having Genefrom Cypher's Rhythms Mobile Entertainment as our DJ. He was super nice, very professional, flexible about our reception hours, and our dance floor was packed the entire evening. We just about had to kick people out at the end of the night! Gene was never cheesy or annoying like so many DJs we've seen. He had just the right amount of interaction with our wedding guests. We were thrilled with Gene's work and would absolutely recommend him to anyone who's looking for a great DJ!
Music was the most important thing to me, and I wanted everyone on the dance floor the entire time. Gene was awesome. He had everyone on the dance floor the entire time and catered to all ages. One moment that stands out, is he knew that I did not have my father attending the wedding and therefore there was no father daughter dance. My brother asked him to play a song for us, and he immediately knew from talking to me, that I would be uncomfortable if I was caught off guard. So he and my wedding planner were able to come together and with me, have the dance played but with Gene inviting all guests on the dance floor at the same time. HIGHLY recommend him.
Cyphers Rhythms Personal Biography And Customer Reviews
I wanted to thank you for working at my daughter’s 14th birthday/8th grade graduation/my hubby’s sendoff party. I have had several parties with DJ’s and it seems that most DJ’s these days are way to high tech and overpriced. I have used DJ’s that just press play on their play list and consider themselves a DJ. I love the fact that you are “old school”, know the true art of spinning, and brought the reals skills of being a DJ to the party.
I am really grateful that you started the party off with music for the adults, songs we know and remember. The adults really loved the music that you played. It entertained us while all the teens were swimming. My husband used to be a DJ years ago and he truly loved your skills. He said once he returns back from Afghanistan we will be having another party for his return. He hopes that you will be available to DJ his welcome home party.
The teens were very pleased that you had today’s music and a variety of music styles that they all could dance too. I really appreciate that that you could handle all the song requests and keep up with them all. At times I felt bad about the swarm of teenagers around you, but you were so awesome, kind, and friendly to handle them all. It was great to see all the teenagers dance the night away. My daughter said, “That this was the best birthday party yet and she definitely wants you back next year.”
I am truly thankful & honored that you came. I hope to see you soon.
DJ'd our wedding and they did an amazing job!! They were very flexible with our schedule as far as meeting with us and for our actual wedding. They were very detail oriented and made sure to note everything we wanted and the type of music we wanted played at the wedding. During the reception the with all the craziness going on the DJ kept everything going smoothly and kept things on schedule for us. They made sure everyone was up dancing and having a good time. They did an amazing job and we couldn't have asked for anyone better to be there with us THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! We would recommend them to anyone and everyone we know.
