Kim did an absolutely wonderful job at our wedding. Our guests had a blast dancing, and many of them complimented us on the playlist. Kim was also super professional and prompt, which made planning a breeze. Thanks so much!

DJ Evan Hoffman was amazing! We met with him before booking and we knew he was a perfect fit for our wedding. Evan was enthusiastic, attentive, and was genuinely happy to be part of our special day. We gave him a long list of songs we wanted to play during cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing

No Macarena providing excellent service for our wedding day! Kim, the owner, was responsive, organized, and pleasant to work with. Dave Beck, our DJ, was energetic and lively, but still paid attention to the details. On the day of the wedding, Dave kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. He played a great

Kim was great to work with and a wonderful DJ for our wedding day. We had a lot of songs we wanted but not a lot of ideas about the flow of the wedding, so she helped with that and it seemed like everyone had a great time!

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 selection

Kim was great! Had used her company previously for a company party, and she did not disappoint day of. Easy to work with, we didn’t want any line dances, etc and she had no problem being the bad guy and declining the music we didn’t want. Great mixes for cocktail and wedding. We gave her

We were so excited to have Kim as our DJ. She was incredibly on ball with the type of music we wanted to play and we had a lot more people out on the dance floor than we had originally thought. Looking back at our wedding video, seeing everyone dancing and having fun was definitely

Evan and Kim were very helpful throughout the planning process, and managed to play everything we asked them to (no small feat!). And, most importantly, they *didn’t* play the things that we explicitly asked them not to. There was an issue during our reception with one of the speakers, that kept cutting out, but Kim

Kim was our wedding DJ and she did an incredible job! I loved working with her. She was so helpful in coming up with the perfect playlist and even developing the timeline for the wedding. She worked with me to make sure my cousin and uncle (the family musicians) could play while I walked down

Ken Buono was our dj, and did an excellent job executing our “must play” list, and then forming a pretty good feel of other songs we’d want played. He definitely had people on the dance floor throughout the entire reception!

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. She had my guests dancing all night and even me! Every one danced the night away. Even friends of

Hiring No Macarena was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They were easy to work with and easily accommodated our requests. Darrel was so wonderful on the day of the wedding – professional, helpful, and he curated an awesome playlist that moved with the night and kept the dance floor packed

Kim was super easy to work with and we handled everything that she needed pre-wedding from us in just a few emails and one phone call. Kim did the music for both our ceremony and reception and it all was great, including a last-minute switch indoors due to rain. She executed just what we had

No Macarena was hands down the BEST choice we made for our entire wedding! From our first correspondence they were very responsive and easy to work with. Our DJ Evan absolutely nailed it! We were worried people wouldn’t dance at our reception but we didn’t need to be, Evan kept everyone on the dance floor

Kelly

We went with No Macarena because they were a recommended vendor from our venue, and I’m so glad we did! Kim was really down to earth and easy to work with. We wanted to go with a mix of mostly 60-70-80’s pop and rock music, and Kim definitely got our vibe and kept the dance

We had planned on having laid back wedding and the music was something that was very important to us. We strongly believe that music is a very big part of what makes a wedding great. But we both didn’t like the idea of a “Wedding DJ”. Someone who yells in that radio jockey voice trying

Fantastic professional experience from start to finish. Kept us involved throughout and invited us to contribute as much as we felt necessary.

No Macarena, and Danny, were amazing! Numerous guests told us it was the best DJ they have heard at a wedding. Danny was super helpful with recommending music, and was able to read the crowd.

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.

I can not say enough great things about No Macarena and our DJ Dave. We spoke to him once or twice on the phone before the event (he was easy to get in touch with) and met in person at the Wedding. He played everything for the ceremony that we asked and exactly on cue.

No Macarena ended up being our favorite wedding Vendor. We worked with DJ Dave, and HIGHLY recommend him!! (As well as working with Kim leading up to the night). Love that they have no restrictions on your music, and truly work to make eclectic music blend. Would echo all reviews that guests did not leave

We loved working with Josh on the music for our wedding. He was professional and really thoughtful about the music selection. He also managed to help us narrow down our music vision and select songs that would get people dancing without compromising our tastes.

Perfect! Kim was great from beginning to end and always took the time to answer all my questions even if they were repeats. Jonas was our DJ and he was exceptional! Whatever we asked of him he was able to take care of. HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this DJ company

We had Jon Gill as our DJ from No Macarena. He was very responsive to our suggestions & limitations of music. My husband, being a musician, is very picky about his music & Jon did exactly as we requested.

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

Our wedding was one giant dance party and we have Darrel to thank for it! He was super responsive to emails (like when I kept one-off remembering little things to ask him and he was so cool about it). He totally got the music vibe we were going for and everyone filled up the dance

Rebecca

Kristin

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

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

Daniel Henner

Jacqui

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. No Macarena comes highly recommended not only by our venue/caterer, but also from other vendors within the Philadelphia area. From

Alison & Greg

No Macarena was a great choice for our wedding. They helped us personalize the ceremony to match a variety of musical tastes. Josh was a great DJ and helped us plan the timing of the event. We highly recommend them for any couple looking for a personal and fun musical atmosphere.

We had a great experience with No Macarena! Kim was very easy to work with as was our DJ Darrel. We gave relatively loose instructions, but our DJ Darrel did an awesome job and had the whole room dancing. Thanks again!

Kim from No Macarena DJed at our wedding last June and did a fantastic job! The playlist run down for the ceremony and reception really went off without a hitch. She played every song we had requested and then some. It was so nice not having to worry about this aspect of the wedding on

Dave Beck with No Macarena did our wedding this Saturday and his attention to detail and style helped make our event the wedding we wanted for ourselves and our guests. Dave made sure to come early to work through the ceremony music with our soloist and our outdoor ceremony went off without a hitch… thanks

Kim was great – the dance floor was packed all night long. She is by far the best DJ I have ever seen for a wedding.

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

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

Christine

We chose No Macarena because we wanted to hand pick our songs and Kim made that possible. Kim was great and played all the songs we asked for and a few surprises we enjoyed. Kim listened to our dislikes and did not play anything we would not want to hear. All of our guests enjoyed

Jill

Melanie

Great! Kim was flexible, full of knowledge, & current. Price was great! If you do not want a cheesy MC shoving a mic into someones face or heading a conga line, this is the DJ for you. She will be as present or in the background as you want.  

Melanie

Anthony and Nicki

DJ Dave and No Macarena had a pretty simple but demanding task… turn our wedding into a 90s/00s dance party. And he/they delivered in a big way – just about ever wedding guest was on the dance floor at some point and DJ Dave nailed the request perfectly. We are so happy with our DJ

Anthony and Nicki

Jordana

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

Jordana

Jessica

Kim was great! We didn’t give Kim a lot of direction, just a short list of songs, but she managed to infer our musical tastes for that small selection and put together a great playlist. We had a wide range of ages, but Kim kept everyone happy and dancing!  

Jessica

Christina

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.

Alexandra

We really loved working with Kim Alexander of No Macarena. She really broke the down the process for us, was very organized and detail oriented and played great music that had us dancing all night! Would highly recommend!

My husband and I very much enjoyed having Darrel Asbury of No Macarena DJ our wedding in Princeton October 9, 2010. He was a pleasure to work with; he adapted to our somewhat challenging venue seamlessly, and he was helpful with questions we had leading up to the event. He was careful to avoid songs

Kim was great! Had used her company previously for a company party, and she did not disappoint day of. Easy to work with, we didn’t want any line dances, etc and she had no problem being the bad guy and declining the music we didn’t want. Great mixes for cocktail and wedding. We gave her

Fantastic professional experience from start to finish. Kept us involved throughout and invited us to contribute as much as we felt necessary. At the beginning of the reception my mom gave Josh a list of traditional Greek wedding song requests (which were NOT on the playlist we submitted) and Josh, hero that he is, found

We had Kim from No Macarena at our wedding and she was great! She came early and help set up the acoustics for our ceremony (we had an acoustic guitarist.) We got married at a non-traditional venue, and I appreciated that Kim was flexible with this. There were a few moments in the evening when

Kim at No Macarena is awesome. It was important to us to find a DJ who just wanted to play music and not constantly attempt to engage the audience and/or talk incessantly on the mic. Kim did just that–she was cool, sat back and played amazing music! People are still telling us how awesome the

We are so glad we found Kim and No Macarena! Kim was responsive, easy to work with, and helped customize our day based on our musical interests.

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

Kim was AMAZING! She was so supportive of our music vision and was willing to work with our “no-play” list which was fairly extensive and got our music taste immediately. She was very well organized, took multiple calls with me when I needed to confirm details, and put together a killer setlist. I got so

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

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

No Macarena was recommended to me by a friend of a friend who had them at her wedding. From my first interaction with Kim she was upbeat, helpful and professional. Darrell was our DJ and when we met with him to discuss our plan, he was knowledgeable about the playlist and agenda we sent over

My Fiancé and I were supposed to be married on 4.10.20, but unfortunately due to Covid-19 we are choosing to postpone. I can not say greater things about Dave and No Macarena DJ for being so patient, flexible, and kind helping us reschedule our special day. This vendor really has their brides and grooms best

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.

No Macarena was wonderful! Our DJ was Kim, and she was terrific. She was responsive and easy to work with, and she was very flexible and tuned into what my husband and I wanted. The day before the wedding, we realized it might be hard for guests to hear if we didn’t have a microphone

Josh was great! We had a fairly simple reception planned, and he was easy to work with and suggested some things that we hadn’t thought of. We also had a massive playlist for the reception that he was able to pull from and put together into a cohesive dance party! Great value for the service!

Awesome, finally a D.J. that caters to the tastes of the people. No cheesy songs or rude interruptions. Hire them for your wedding and it will only make your day better. She drove all the way to Eatontown NJ from Philly for us. The music was perfect and everyone loved her selection of songs, plus

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…

In 2003 I was at a wedding and heard a Bjork song during the cocktail hour and thought, “Wow, who is this DJ!?” I went to the DJ table and took the business card. It was No Macarena and I was 19 years old. Ten years later, my best friend got married and the DJ

We had Kim for our wedding, and she was absolutely fantastic. We gave her pretty much free reign (aside from a “no play” list) to play whatever she thought would work, and she did a great job keeping everyone dancing. I know No Macarena sells itself on being out-of-the-way DJs, but I asked Kim to
