  • I emphatically recommend Barb Fox. She cared about quality and detail as if it was her own family's wedding. She was so much more than a wedding DJ for us. Of course the music was fantastic. She has experience, knowledge, intuition, and surely ESP because she created the perfect wedding reception playlist for a a couple who gave only a very vague description of what we wanted, relegated so many popular go-to wedding songs to our "do not play" list, and asked for "Do You Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart (challenge accepted!). It was just perfect music from start to end. But there's more! Barb helped us plan our wedding schedule of events, fielded many emails with last minute requests/changes, and helped us keep things moving along on the wedding day. If I had another event to book a DJ for, I would call Barb first and book it around her availability.

    Dayle, thank you so much for the kind words. :) Your wedding and reception were fantastic -- and it was my pleasure to do it! Everyone was great, and I am so happy to have met you! Thanks again for having me! My best to you -- Barb

  • Barb Fox is an amazing DJ! She did our wedding and she was so professional, so personable and a pleasure to work with! We also selected to do the purple up-lights she has and they really made the reception look AMAZING! Totally worth it and we’re so glad we did the lights! Barb played all the songs we requested and she was on top of everything! The DJ is the one who hosts the wedding and makes sure we stay on a schedule of what to do next! Barb nailed it! We’re so pleased with her services. And HIGHLY recommend Barb Fox!

  • Barb Fox is absolutely incredible and was a HUGE part of making my wedding the best day ever!! She did our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music. Each event was better than the last! She was immensely helpful with planning the wedding, especially our reception timeline. She answers emails extremely quickly and was very accommodating with meeting in person or over the phone, which I always appreciated as a detail oriented bride! She plays the perfect balance of dancey music, slow songs and group dances. I may be biased because it was my own wedding, but I have never been to a better dance party at a reception. She even checked in with me throughout the night to make sure I was happy! When my husband's grandma requested that she play the hokey pokey, she got everyone at the wedding on the dance floor to participate and it was HILARIOUS - most definitely a highlight of the night!! I can't imagine that the wedding would have been as perfect without Barb guiding it. All of our guests ... Read more

  • We picked Barb after talking to quite a few DJs. We were having a barn wedding and I wanted someone who would not become overbearing when the dance floor was empty because guests were at a bonfire outside or playing a lawn game. She totally got it and we had such a great conversation on the phone I booked her right away. She also helped me design the flow of the ceremony. It was a week before and I was freaking out a bit and we got it done together on the phone. She’s laid back enough to roll with it but she was on it to keep us on time (at one point she even helped me bustle my dress!). Her cocktail hour playlist was amazing having some of our favorite bands. Her dinner set also was amazing everything we talked about was covered. She read the crowd so well and the dance floor was full. We had the best time and people keep talking about how wonderful she was. Her personality is key. You feel comfortable in her hands and don’t have to worry about anything.

  • Barb was the DJ at my daughter’s wedding on 8-18-18. I have had the opportunity to work with Barb at a couple weddings and when my daughter announced she was getting married, I knew right away that Barb was the best DJ for her wedding. Barb is professional, fun and knows how to get the guests dancing. Her experience allows her to be prepared for anything. It had rained for days prior to my daughters outside wedding and the ground was a saturated and a muddy mess. Barb not only made sure the music was perfect, she also made sure my daughter and son-in-law were having a good time and taken care of. As the Mother of the Bride one thing that I appreciate is that Barb is genuine and caring. Once the wedding was done and over she still continued to care about how the couple was. I would highly recommend Barb. You will not be disappointed.

  • I would not have wanted any other DJ to work with other than Barb! She is so up beat and friendly. She knows how to keep a party going and keep everyone entertained! I have seen her work other weddings and she never gets boring. I would highly recommend looking into her services!!

  • Barb was recommended to us by our reception location and I am so glad she is who we chose. Barb is an exceptional DJ and kept people on the dance floor all night. Barb provided the music at our ceremony as well as a microphone for our minister. I have Barb an idea of what time of music we liked and she was able to pick out songs for our introductions and at the end of the ceremony that matched our style. I had provided a list of requests from our guests and she was able to fit in many of those songs. Barb does an excellent job of keeping the talking to a minimum and just letting the music play through out the night.

    Lindsey, thanks so much -- it was great meeting you and your husband, plus all your fun friends! Thanks again for having me -- it really was my pleasure! :)

  • Barb was incredible! I was maid of honor for my friend's Nicole and Andy's wedding. For the speeches we (Bride tribe) did a SURPRISE karaoke concert medley. Barb went above and beyond for my friend Jeff and I to be successful. We chatted with her a few days before, she checked in with us prior to the day and during the big day! She was great! When it came to dancing she played awesome tunes all night long! It was an incredible party, a perfect day for our friends and Barb was a huge part of making the day fun, stress free and memorable! I really enjoyed working with her and partying with her. I highly recommend her!

  • Barb DJ’d our wedding on 6/30/18 and we can’t recommend her highly enough! We gave Barb a list of songs for pre-ceremony, processional and recessional that she was able to accommodate easily. We gave her general genres for cocktail hour and dinner music that she picked great selections for. We threw a wrench at her by having our reception outdoors for a typically indoor venue and she pulled it off without a hitch! She also worked with our bridal party to put a collaboration of songs together as part of their karaoke tribute to us that was the hit of dinner and kicked our night off properly. We left control of the music selection for the reception completely to Barb for her to change up based on the crowd and their reactions. Our dance floor was PACKED from the first song to the last. By song 2 I knew we were in great hands and had to make eye contact and give her a silent “thank you, you’re the best!!!!” She also served as time keeper when we got caught up following pictures ...

    Nicole - you and Andy were the best! It was such a pleasure to meet you both and to DJ the day for you. And wow -- possibly the best ceremony I have ever EVER seen! (Stevie may want to hire himself out!) Everyone was just great -- I loved helping Melissa and Jeff with their performance, they were incredible! (I think I should hire THEM to come with me to every wedding to perform!) Thanks so much for the kind words -- it really was my pleasure. My very best wishes to both of you...... Barb

  • Barb was so great to work with. Wedding planning was really not my thing, but she helped me through the process and really understood what I was looking for. She knew the kind of music my guests wanted to hear and people were dancing all night! I can't say enough great things. I had always wanted a band for my wedding, but decided to go with a DJ and choosing Barb I had absolutely no regrets. The music and her MC skills were spot on!

    Thanks so much, Megan! It was so much fun -- your guests were great -- I wasn't sure if everyone would dance, because it was so hot, but that definitely didn't stop anyone! Best of luck to you guys -- it was wonderful meeting you! Thanks for letting me be a part of such a special day. :)

  • Barb Fox saved our wedding! We were planning to do our music ourselves, but the owners of our venue turned out to be a complete nightmare, and we decided we needed some professional assistance with the music and the general flow of our wedding. We found Barb through a referral and - lucky for us - she'd just had a cancellation for the date of our wedding. Barb offered to deal directly with the very difficult venue owner, who was insisting that we pay a friend of the venue to set up sound equipment, even though we'd hired a DJ (Barb) who had her own equipment. Barb was able to convince the venue owner to let her use her own equipment, which cleared up a major headache for us. Barb also helped advise us on the timing of songs, dances, speeches, etc. (which our venue was supposed to help with but didn't). She took all of our song suggestions and also did a wonderful job filling out our list. She made announcements but was never cheesy. The music ran flawlessly for both the ceremony and th...

  • Barb is THE BEST! My husband and I could not be happier with the service she provided for us. Barb is professional, experienced, personable and funny! I never met with Barb before our wedding because we were planning from out of state but hiring her was one of the easiest decisions I made. From the moment I spoke with her on the phone her personality came through and I knew she was our DJ. My guests and I couldn’t stop dancing the night away.... it was hit after hit! Barb was an absolute pleasure to work with and we will forever be greatful for the amazing job she did!

    Amanda, Thanks so much! Of course, you guys made my job pretty easy by being so easy to work with, and having such fun-loving guests! It was SO much fun! Thanks for letting me be a part of it. :) Barb

  • Barb DJ'ed my best friend's wedding for which I was maid of honor. I've been to A LOT of weddings - this year in particular - and Barb was my favorite DJ by far. She has the excellent ability to read a crowd, a plethora of diverse yet perfect songs for events, and an excellent personality with which to host events like these. More than this, she was exceptionally pleasant to work with. I will absolutely be hiring her for my wedding (should I ever actually get married).

    responded with the following comments.

    Brittany, (or should I say "Brittelle?) -- Thank you so much for such kind words! I thought you all were fabulous -- holy cats! Such dancers! :) And I hope that you DO "ever actually" get married, so I can do your wedding -- you are so much fun!!!! :) Take good care..... Barb

  • Barb was amazing! She is truly a good project manager. She made sure she had every detail right for the wedding day. During the dancing, she also made sure that she had all of our genre choices. She played pop music in 40s theme for dinner, and early 200s R&B and motown, as well as current songs for the dancing (just as we requested). She made suggestions about changes to our wedding schedule, but she was never imposing. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to have a fun wedding.

    Thanks, Jonathan -- I have to admit, you guys made my job easy! You were so nice to work with, and your guests were a lot of fun -- omg, they were dancing up a storm! Thank you so much for having me, and best of luck to you both! :) ~~~ Barb

  • Barb Fox was the DJ and MC for our wedding and reception in June 2017. She also provided ceremony music, and uplighting for the reception venue. She worked with us to select music, and to figure out the timeline for the reception, including helping us figure out when toasts should be given, cake cut, and special dances happen. She incorporated some of our less danceable music preferences into music over dinner, and played fun, recognizable, danceable, and wedding-appropriate music based on our preferences during the reception. The uplighting added a nice touch to the venue, and the ceremony music was exactly what we requested. She had one equipment failure, but had spare equipment ready and quickly swapped in the spare for minimal disruption. We were impressed with her professionalism, her ability to MC and run the show and work through small changes to the timeline, and her depth of knowledge and passion for music. Overall we were very pleased with her services.

    Jesse, thanks so much -- it was my pleasure to DJ your wedding! Your friends and family were so nice and easy to work with -- I loved their requests! :) Thanks for having me, and best of luck to you both in your futures!
