  • 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!

  • 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).

    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!

  • Barb is AMAZING!!! We were so thrilled to have her on our special day! She knows exactly what she's doing so you don't need to sweat a thing! Gets everyone involved, keeps the crowd entertained and moves smoothly throughout the night! She even has a few ideas to mix up those old traditions!

    Thanks so much, Hannah, for the kind words, and for having me DJ your wedding -- it was such a nice party -- your friends and family are all fantastic! Best of luck to you and Derek! :) Barb

  • I wholeheartedly recommend Barb Fox to anyone looking for a DJ for their event. We booked her for our wedding in December and I could not be more happy with the experience. She was pleasant and extremely helpful, from our initial contact right until the end of the night. Barb was invaluable when it came to scheduling and keeping the event functioning smoothly. In addition she provided some lovely uplighting that really added some nice ambiance to our event. In terms of music, I could not have asked for a more professional or skilled DJ. She was able to accommodate every song request that came her way. Furthermore she was attentive in working with my fiance and I prior to the event to determine what we wanted to hear and what we wanted to avoid. Barb was truly vital in making our reception memorable. She engaged the audience throughout the evening, even friends and family who don't typically dance! It was a great night. In summation, if you are seeking a DJ for your event, you reall... Read more

  • 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 did a fantastic job in our wedding day! Before hiring her, I was a little worried that she couldn't handle "young people" in our wedding because I had bias for wedding DJ :p BUT I was absolutely 1000% wrong. Barb is the BEST! We had a mixed age of guests in our wedding but most of them are under 30. EVERYONE LOVED THE MUSIC! I had a group of girls who even took off their high heels to dance the whole night, and the next day they felt so exhausted and they complained that the music was too good to stop dancing. Not only did Barb do an excellent job in our wedding party, but also she nailed the whole wedding ceremony & dinner. My husband wanted to play something classy during our wedding dinner, and she did a great job! Our guests told us that the music was the best music selections they had heard in the wedding dinner: classy and simply awesome! Barb was pretty sick prior to our wedding day, and we were worried that she couldn't make it. However, in our wedding day, she was sup... Read more

  • Barb Fox was the DJ for my daughter's wedding in July; she was great to work with and very professional. She has a vast knowledge of this business and will cater to your taste in music while making sure all of your guests are enjoying themselves. So many of our friends and family complimented us on the music and remarked on what a great time they had. We wanted the reception to be fun, and Barb played great songs and made it a party!

  • I am so glad we hired Barb for our wedding reception. She was a great DJ, she was able to get people to dance that I did not expect to dance at our wedding. She came up with some creative ideas that made the reception exciting and unique. But beyond being the DJ, Barb helped our reception run as a whole. She went above and beyond what I would expect a DJ to do. When unexpected issues arose, Barb was right next to my friends and family to help make things run smoothly. At one point she was even clearing plates for the caterers. I am so grateful for her and all she did for us that day. I would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a DJ.

  • Barb did an amazing job as a DJ for our wedding. My husband is Puerto Rican and we wanted a mix of contemporary and Latin music, and she did an excellent job playing each genera. She kept the dance floor moving all night long and played all of our "must play" favorites. She also played the music for our ceremony, which was a mix of live piano and violin and pre-recorded music, and that was great! She was very organized and kept the flow of the day and evening without us having to worry about a thing, which was very important to me. I highly recommend her!

  • My wife and I couldn't be much happier for the service we received from Barb. Barb wasn't our first choice , our first dj back out three weeks before the wedding and never told us . Told my sister in law. So my sister in law referred us to Barb... We couldn't have been more happier that our first dj did that to us. Because we would have never met Barb. She is so amazing played what we asked and used her own judgement on this ,as in if people were not dancing to certain music changed it so that our dance floor was never empty. Barb also gave us ideas on others wedding to make it more fun and exciting .Barb got the crowd going , threw out light sticks which the kids loved. We can not say enough about Barb . We truly have nothing negative to say. What an amazing lady, dj. If you are looking for a dj for wedding call Barb. We will certainly use Barb for our next party!!!!!!!!!
