I was married on November 3rd. DJ Ron Furr was a tremendous asset. He was great throughout the ceremony. We had a diverse group of attendees...ages 2-88 from 3 different countries. He adapted to last minute requests, played a great mix of music, and made everybody feel comfortable. I had no idea how our unique mix of people would do in a reception...they loved it! More importantly, Ron was easy to get a hold of, generous with his time, and walked us through exactly how the ceremony and reception would flow. We were having trouble picturing how everything would work. After a few conversations with Ron, we knew that we would be fine. It is hard to put a price on feeling some control as you try to coordinate a huge event. I can't recommend him enough. 6 stars!
