He’s A Great Listener John will be the glue that holds everything together in your wedding. Unlike all those DJs who see weddings as nothing but commercial events and are least interested in you, John is the exact opposite of that. He is a great listener because he is genuinely interested to know your needs and expectations of him. He will make sure to spend time with you to know more about you and understand your taste in music. His strong listening skills will also make sure that names are flawlessly pronounced as if he has been a part of your family for years. Strong Communication Skills Are his Game The last thing you’d want in a DJ is that when you hire them, all they ask of you is to send them a playlist only to talk to you again on the day of the wedding. Weddings are full of hustle and bustle, and if your DJ doesn’t communicate with you, you might end up not finalizing any music for your wedding. Moreover, they may not know about the timeline of your wedding and may come unprepared. The result will be a chaotic yet awkward wedding. Rest assured John will keep in contact with you from the day you start planning your wedding to the end of your reception. He is punctual, organized, and will always be there for you. Be it emails, calls, or text he knows how important the event is for you and he will make sure that it is as stress-free as possible for you. He’s A Master of Coordination Too The mark of a great DJ is that they will make your wedding smooth and effortless. It’s not just the music that they are responsible for but also the way they manage the flow of your reception. John will check on you, time and again, to make sure if you need anything at all. From coordinating with your photographer, videographer, and floor staff, about timing and order of your wedding before and not during the event he will also ensure that your messages are communicated to them without you stressing about them. He will get to know all the parties involved in your wedding even your family and guests so that he can accommodate their and your requests, requirements or enquires comfortably so that everything goes according to the plan. Also, he’ll keep an eye on all the events taking place in your wedding, to perfectly time the announcements and music from your arrival, toasts, dinner serving, and cake cutting to the dance party so that nothing is out of place or mismanaged. It’s the little things John does that makes every event he goes to a great one. He Knows How to Get Everyone on the Floor From catering to Pop, RnB, Hip Hop, 30s to 90s hits, to Arabic, Italian and way more suffice to say John is a walking music library. Weddings are obviously a culmination of a heterogeneous crowd with different tastes in music. Grandparents or children, John knows how to play just the right music at the right time, set the tempo, and make the guests have a time of their lives. At the end of the day, it’s the smiles that people will take home with them and the refreshing energy from dancing that let them have fun and be joyous at your wedding. DJ John is the ideal man to make that happen. His passion, dedication, and polite and inviting manner to each and every guest to celebrate is sure to make your wedding a memorable one. Professional Yet Caring From your very first interaction with him, John will, for sure, manage to impress you with his polite, and humbling attitude, efficient manner and energy for your event. He always comes prepared and organized so that if anything goes awry, you have his shoulder to rely on. You can trust him to pour magic into any cultural tradition or special announcements you have. Wedding day is the pinnacle of beauty in our lives, and John will make sure that you are your impeccable self by offering to help you with wedding running sheet, content, and order of speeches and so much more. With a friendly and gentle manner, he can even give a warm welcome to the guests on your behalf. Classy, humorous, and charismatic DJ BIG JOHN is the man your wedding needs. Conclusion Know that with DJ John’s polite, professional, and accommodating manner, there’s no way your wedding would not become the most magical and memorable events of your life. His vast experience has made him adaptable to handle any last minute changes you want like a pro. Going with him will be the best decision you’ll ever make, after, saying “yes” to your fiancé, of course!

  • John is more than a great DJ, he is a gentleman. He is as professional and astute as they come. From day one, John listened to what my wife and I envisaged and delivered on the big day. Our family and friends were up on the dance floor the entire night thanks to the music played. Never did we have a problem, John made us certain that all we had to do was enjoy our night and he would do what we asked of him. Truly a magical night and John was a big part of that. There's not many people out there like John, you get more than just the music, you get someone that cares about you and wants to make your special night exactly that. John, we can't thank you enough, what a levendi!

  • My 50th fancy dress birthday party in Melbourne would not have been a great success without Dj Matty by Pro DJ Aust. From the moment I contacted both John and Matty we clicked and they supported me right through all the organisation for the lighting and music I had chosen for the night. Everything was timed perfect for the main dance music to the cutting of the cake and the background music I chose during dinner. The lighting was brilliant it really set the perfect atmosphere for my party. I highly recommend Pro DJ and I look forward to another event with them..Extremely professional, I had one less stress for my night because they knew exactly what to do, they knew exactly what I wanted and it was carried through with no hassles at all. Thank you to John and Matty for making my night a spectacular event ????????????????????????????????????

  • John is truly fantastic at what he does. Not only does he deliver amazing work, but is a pleasure to deal with. He listened to our needs and expectations, and was always prompt to respond to any queries we had throughout the whole process. On the night he was in regular communication with us, letting us know what would be up next, but at the same time giving us space. He gaged the crowd wonderfully and had everyone up and enjoying themselves with the choices of music. Could not recommend him enough.

  • From our first meeting with John, we knew we had chosen the right DJ for our wedding. John immediately understood our music tastes, that we didn't want the stereotypical wedding music, and ensured that each song we did want was included, which is extremely important to music fanatics, like us. Songs were timed perfectly and we had many comments from our guests about the amazing music selection. Thank you, John, for your integral part in our ceremony and reception. It's a night that we and our guests won't forget.

John was absolutely amazing on our Wedding day, He honestly made our wedding reception so easy and relaxed for my husband and i, He was such a professional yet down to earth, genuine and so easy to work with.

  • John was our DJ and MC on our wedding night and he was absolutely fantastic! We had a Halloween wedding and from the moment we first met him, we knew he was the right choice! He took the time to listen to our requests and concerns and was there for us every step of the way! He helped us to create such a magical night and atmosphere and he really went the extra mile! He consistently checked in with us throughout the planning process and offered feedback and ideas on multiple areas of the wedding that were extremely helpful! John was worth every penny, and we wouldn't change choosing him for the world!
