Choosing to work with Kim Alexander, founder of No Macarena DJ & Custom Music Service, was one of the best decisions we made. I first reached out to Kim in December of 2013 for our October 2014 wedding — she was recommended by one of my coworkers, by one of the caterers we were considering,

Kim was absolutely wonderful. The lead up to the wedding was great and she chose an amazing playlist. She was helpful with changes and patient during the many speeches we had during the wedding. With all the delays she packed a punch on the dance floor and it was packed for the remainder of the

No Macarena was amazing! Our DJ was Joe Pizzio and he was incredible from beginning to end. Me and my husband started making couple of long playlists months before the wedding. we gather all the songs that we really loved and the ones we had good memories with growing up: for dancing, slow dancing, reception,

Kim the owner is lovely and easy to work with! The prices are very reasonable she is willing to work with you on prices. Another DJ did our wedding since the owner had surgery. They really listen to what you want and do not want in terms of music

Great experience. We didn’t want some 80s style cheesy DJ, so we booked No Macarena after a friend used them for their wedding and we all had a great time. My dad did bring a CD to have a song played and they didn’t have a CD player like we were told he would, but

David

Awesome to work with, great music, flexible, reasonably priced. Everybody at our wedding had a blast and commented on our music selections! As advertised, there was no hokey music or lame group activities. Other than the bridal party intro and toast intros, the DJ stayed silent and just kept the dance floor active. Bonus points

My wife and I attended our friends’ wedding a few years ago which Kim DJ’ed. We agreed at that wedding that we would use her for ours when the day came. She was the first vendor we hired after booking our venue and we couldn’t be more pleased. She was amazing throughout the entire process

Our wedding went fantastic and was in great part due to Joe Pizzio of No Macarena. He was incredibly flexible and has an in-depth, varied music knowledge base. We had asked for a more pop-punk inspired music list and with only a handful of examples he was able to fill out the music list in

Kim from No Macarena was fantastic! She provided me with additional setup up for the ceremony and was able to fill in appropriate music/song choices on certain things I didn’t feel like picking ie. cake cutting.

My wife and I have some interesting musical tastes. Think: Michael McDonald, ABBA and the Spice Girls. Kim found a way to blend together our ‘must-haves’ with similar songs in the genre and when we gave her our “no play” list, we could feel the high-five through the phone as we could tell she was

My partner and I were married in early September, and we had an amazing experience with Rod Pluviose through No Macarena!

Dave Beck was the DJ for our wedding. What a great experience we had! We wanted music that would appeal to a very wide range of people (we had kids and grandparents at the event). The dance floor was occupied all night long! We also wanted Indian music as well and Dave was very accommodating.

We were thrilled with our experience with No Macarena. They DJ’d our wedding at Bok in South Philly in September 2018. Our initial communication was with Kim Alexander (owner), who took the time to understand our needs and work out our contract. A few weeks before our wedding, we had a great phone call with

We enjoyed working with Kim, and our DJ (Dave) was great! He was flexible about a few last-minute changes to introductions, and about working with the house sound system. He played appropriate dinner music so that the meal was served and eaten smoothly (we even got to eat!). Some folks commented that they were concerned

No Macarena was great! Joe Pizzio was the DJ for our wedding, including ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Both he and Kim (the owner of the company) were easy to work with and professional.

My now-husband and I were initially against the idea of a DJ, until we saw what the cost would be for a live band. As we started looking for alternatives, we quickly realized that not all DJs are made the same. No Macarena was EXACTLY the type of DJ company that we never knew we

No Macarena provided such value for their price that I almost feel like we robbed them! They came highly recommended from a co-worker as a DJ that wouldn’t take over the wedding and play cheesy line dances, (unless you really want them to! ). I communicated with Kim leading up to the event, and she

No Macarena was FANTASTIC. Our DJ was Evan, who was incredibly sweet and seemed to really be excited to be a part of our day. The music was perfect. There was never a lull throughout the night and, when it was time to go, people we left wanting more. We received nothing but accolades for

We are super big music people and knew that our classic rock/80s disco style playlist would require the right type of music vendor—that’s where No Macarena came in.

I’m the first to admit I’m a bit of a music snob/geek and I’d have to say one of our top priorities for our wedding was to make sure we had good music and no cheesy DJ taking the focus away from the MUSIC! When I found No Macarena I knew they were right up

If you are looking for a GREAT company that really cares about what you want, hire No Macarena! They are incredibly reasonable and worth every penny.

We used No Macarena for our wedding on 6/7/19. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Right from the start Kim was very responsive and professional.

This company came highly recommended to us by both our venue and our caterer and we couldn’t have been happier! I’ve been to a bunch of weddings where there was a DJ but no one was dancing. That’s not what we got- everyone was on their feet from the minute the dance floor opened up.

We hired No Macarena primarily because it was one of the preferred vendors of our venue. Being that we live 3,000 miles from our venue, we really relied on word of mouth from trusted sources.

If you don’t like the loud, cheesy DJ, this is definitely the way to go. Grace, our DJ, played the music we asked her to, mixed in other music to our taste, and didn’t play anything we didn’t want to hear. She kept the vibe that we wanted our wedding to have, and we were

No Macarena first appealed to my fiancé and I due to their vision of providing quality DJ experience without falling for traditional wedding DJ shticks. It is clear that this is group of people who are passionate about music. Both Kim and her staff are responsive, enthusiastic and professional. Our original DJ fell ill and

Fantastic DJ! I was contact with the owner and the DJ that worked my wedding reception. I had a long conversation with the DJ before the event in order for him to understand what music my groom and I wanted to be played. He was very easy to talk to and understood exactly what we

Jonas and No Macarena DJ were terrific! Jonas was professional, played all the music we asked him to play, and expertly dealt with guests who requested songs we did not want played. After providing him with some music suggestions, he understood what we wanted immediately, and completely nailed it. We received complements on all aspects

Our DJ MADE our wedding. We had, literally, the best day of our lives. We were referred to No Macarena by another couple. Kim, the owner, answered all of our questions/emails in a very timely/friendly manner. A customized sheet asking for requests/do not plays and information was given out specific for our event.

We had a great experience working with our DJ Alex and the team at No Macarena! As advertised, there were no cheesy gimmicks or cringe-worthy MC’ing — just good music and people!

Sarah and Chris were INCREDIBLE. They had an easy but detailed form to fill out to make planning super simple and straightforward.

Kim was a fantastic wedding DJ. We knew that we didn’t want the typical loud and annoying wedding DJ and I am so glad that we found Kim. Our guests loved her so much they even pulled her out on the dance floor for a song! She did a great job at reading the crowd

Our DJ Joe was so easy to work with before the wedding. I gave him the most absurd and random list of songs that my now-husband and I might like to hear, and somehow he was able to figure out our taste from that. He really seemed to get us and what kind of songs

What first appealed to my wife and I about No Macarena was their commitment to not falling for hackneyed wedding DJ shticks.

Kim was great to work with!! She listened to what we wanted- which was a very specific list of plays/do-NOT-plays and kept the party going all night!! She was exactly what we wanted in a DJ– someone who would simply give us the best party of our lives. No line dances, no choreography, and she

We came across No Macarena online because we were drawn to the name! My husband and I had recently been to a couple weddings where the music was a little cheesy and the DJ hogged the mic all night. We were looking for something that didn’t remind us of a Bar Mitzvah from the 1990s…

We absolutely loved No Macarena! Working with Chris & Sarah to setup all our details was so easy- they sent us a form to fill out all of our information, to answer questions about ourselves and our timeline, specific songs we wanted for specific parts of the wedding, and our overall play/do not play list.

Kim of No Macarena is a breath of fresh air after attending so many weddings with sub-par DJs. So many guests complimented our music selection and even the volume (which allowed some guests to chat while others danced). I’d highly recommend Kim and No Macarena.

Everyone we worked with at No Macarena was helpful, responsive, and eager to do the best they could to help our big day be stress-free. I couldn’t be more grateful to Kim for helping us set it up for for our DJ Josh for making sure everything ran smoothly. I provided Josh with a long

We love music, No Macarena loves music…GOOD music. We and our guests had the best time at our wedding…our dance floor was packed with all ages of guests the whole night.
