DJ Buddy Holly was amazing again. We asked him to focus on the 80's era and he did just that. He spun great and memorable tunes, he rocked out on his guitar for several songs, and he allowed us to do Karaoke throughout the evening as well. Everyone had a wonderful time. We love DJ Buddy Holly and we will use him again. KB

We hired David Kramer to dj my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. David was professional and talented in everything he did. His classical guitar playing was awesome. His music selection was perfect. His ability to adjust the music for the various generations present was skillful. I highly recommend dj Buddy Holly!!

DJ Buddy Holly was simply pleasure to work with! Prior to the wedding, he made me feel comfortable about his services by communicating clearly and letting me know how he could cater his services to fit my event's specific needs. On the day of the wedding, he showed up before the agreed time, set up, and was ready to go on when needed. During the wedding, he saved the day multiple times by providing his wireless mic for speeches when the venue's mic (which we were originally going to use) didn't work. He was also very flexible in taking requests and kept everyone dancing the whole night. Overall a really nice and professional guy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - Thanks David!

Buddy (Dave) arrived early. welcoming personality the entire time. Every request I wanted was played. The room stayed full o. great music until the end. Never lull. My feet are still sore after all the dancing and face still smiling thinking about it. I would recommend everyone using Dave, and I will again when the opportunity comes. I have never used a total online reservation/gig masters prior, and was so happy with the outcome. EXCELLENT. score 10! Thanks Elaine Hancock

DJ Buddy Holly was a wonderful DJ. He played all my song requests and was open to anything I wanted. If I had to provide some critique I would tell him to be more interactive with the crowd by getting them more involved and keeping the party going. However, it doesnt take away his overall talent. I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thank you DJ Buddy Holly...keep on rockin'!!!!!

Did not come to venue on time (but did get setup on time). Communication was not ideal regarding arrival times and setup. Most of all, music selection was not fitting for the type of event. Hip Hop selections are not sutible during a corporate business dinner and were totally off in tone. Would not recommend going forward - but overall price was not terrible. Would have invested in a more expensive DJ if were to do it again.
