THE BRIDE'S PERSPECTIVE
"We have nothing but love for Alex for making our wedding so incredible! We honestly didn't have a good idea on how to pick music that everyone of all ages would like since so many of our guests love all varieties of music. We decided to put our trust in Alex playing what he thought felt right and it was seriously AMAZING. Alex used his knowledge of music and lyrics to feel the crowd, and had everyone (Even the old folks!) on the dance floor until we (literally) had to shut the wedding down! Our whole experience from the get go with Alex was so personal-we never felt like we were dealing with a "vendor" or a "commercialized business";it was friendly, kind-hearted, and he was genuinely interested into making one of the most memorable nights of our lives just that much more special for our friends and family. Alex also played acoustic during our cocktail hour-he has an amazing voice and is so musically talented (I highly recommend him playing for you as well-seriously awesome!) It was a great mixture of a live performance blended with everyone's favorites of the night. You wouldn't believe how many people came up to us that night & said "This is the best wedding we have ever been to, the music is awesome!" and it TRULY was. If there is any question as to who is to give you music on your wedding night like ours or for any special event, I wouldn't recommend anyone but Alex Balingit. He's a great guy, and an amazing DJ and artist! Alex, good luck! Glad to call you a friend, and wish you nothing but the best-we are your forever clients. Love, Ashlin & Tyler Stiscak"
"Five Reasons for a Five Star Rating.
If you are planning a wedding and want to have:
1. awesome music
2. a really awesome, talented person
3. a professional mixing the music to keep EVERYONE on the dance floor ALL night (despite your introverted family)
4. requested songs played readily which pleases your guests
5. someone who will work with your time schedule and be very prompt at responding (what a stress relief!!!)
THEN HIRE ALEX BALINGIT!!
I can't say enough good things about Alex, our DJ. I loved working with him, and found it so helpful to have someone so prepared to help us (in all aspects, not just music) make our big day perfect!"
"Alex is a very knowledgeable, awesome, and fantastic wedding artist! My husband and I hired him in September of 2013 and do not regret it whatsoever (and is actually one the few vendors that we loved and made our day that much more fantastic)! We received SO many compliments about how interactive he was with the dance floor and guests, the music played, and another perk--even the elderly guests enjoyed the music and were up dancing (which can be hard to please them sometimes!)! Other friends that were at our wedding actually decided to hire him for their July wedding as well and now my sister is this fall. I think that speaks volumes about him! He is very professional, fun to work with, organized, easy going, and certainly someone you do not have to worry about when you have a million other things to do right before the big day. He worked with my husband and I on every last detail, and even helped us by giving recommendations for vendors and helping us with our timeline. You won't regret hiring Alex for any event that you may have!!"
"Alex was our DJ at our wedding in Culver, Indiana. I cannot say enough about him, he was so great! Our venue was non traditional and a bit of a drive from his location. He made a separate trip out to our location just to look it over and decide how much and what type of equipment he would need to bring to service the venue. We really appreciated this, as our venue was not your typical banquet hall or golf club. The day of he was on time, setup early and prepared. He sang live music during our cocktail hour which everyone loved! Our wedding guests constantly commented about how great our DJ was. Literally this past weekend (over a year later) I saw an out of town friend and she mentioned how she has yet to be at a wedding with a better DJ! At the end of the night we even paid him to stay later! ;) So many DJ companies are cheesy and annoying. Alex was the furthest from that, he was professional and most importantly took charge of the night. The DJ should be the one that keeps the flow of the night going and he did that! He was so flexible and worked with all of our requests! You will be glad you asked him to be a part of your wedding day!"
"We hired Alex as our wedding DJ and he did an amazing job. I had comments from many guests that it was the best mix of music they have ever heard at a wedding. Throughout the night he always kept the dance floor packed, and included everything we wanted such as the cake cutting, bouquet toss, and garter toss. He is very personable and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!! Thanks again Alex!!!"
"Alex provided DJ services for our wedding on June 8th 2013. He was always available to answer questions and advise us during the wedding planning process. The music at our wedding was awesome, and all of our guests loved it! We totally trusted his judgement and we're so glad we did. Everyone had an amazing time dancing. We would absolutely recommend Alex to anyone planning an event or wedding."
"Alex performed and DJ-ed at our wedding. He was incredibly professional and very skilled. He got everyone out on the dance floor and kept them dancing all night! I would recommend his services to anyone!"
"With full enthusiasm, we would recommend Alex Balingit for his DJ services. Alex was referred to us by another one of our vendors, and fun to work with and very professional from our first contact with him.
Alex played the guitar and sang during our cocktail hour. A lot of our guests complimented on how good he was, and a few people that didn't see him thought we were playing recorded music. He handled all of the speeches, first dances, etc very smoothly. Most importantly, he was awesome during the post-dinner dancing. He gave us the option beforehand to play or exclude certain songs, artists, or genres, but we decided to let him do his thing. The dance floor was packed and full of energy until the end of our reception time, at which point the lights came on and the full dance floor chanted "one more song" (he obliged).
Thanks again Alex!"
"Alex is the best! Totally professional and listened to what we wanted. Such great enthusiasm throughout the night and super attentive. If he saw a song wasn't working he'd move on to another quick and seamlessly. He kept the dance floor packed all night....they kind of had to kick us out. Thanks Alex.
(Side note: He is also amazing dealing with drunk guests who try to request songs the bride had veto'd. He's awesome)"
THE GROOM'S PERSPECTIVE
"If you looked up entertainment in the dictionary, I wouldn't be surprised to see a picture of Alex. My wife and I hired Alex's entertainment company for our wedding in November 2012. I have never seen so many people consistently on the dance floor and having such a good time at any wedding I've ever been to. He treats his customers like his teammates and does a great job of planning and making sure you get what you pay for. We not only received the service we paid for but we also received all of the intangibles that Alex brings to the table that you can't put a price on. I highly recommend the work that Alex provides."
"A DJ is one of the most critical details for a successful memorable wedding reception. My wife and I booked Alex for our wedding and it was hands down one of the best decisions we made for our very important day. Alex did an amazing job with every little detail from the initial planning through the end of the reception tear down of equipment. We had a very diverse crowd at our wedding and the attention Alex paid to the crowd was great. The dance floor never went empty. He showed a very high level of professionalism while still having that balance of fun. I have already recommended Alex too many friends and will continue to as there is no doubt his talent is top notch and far superior to any other DJs that I've seen."
"Best DJ Ever. Alex killed it! He came highly recommended from a close friend of ours who recently used him at their wedding and we were not disappointed! Music was the only thing that I was in charge of for the wedding and Alex made me look like a superstar. He kept the dance floor packed and dancing the entire night. The best memories of our wedding are from dancing with my wife, friends, and family and that is all thanks to Alex. He knew exactly what to play and when, thanks to him we still get compliments on how much fun everyone had during our reception. If you love to dance and want to guarantee that you and your guests will have an amazing wedding night, do yourself a favor and book with Alex."
"Alex was the deejay at my wedding and we couldn't have been happier with the job he did. He kept the dance floor alive, was a great announcer, and played good music the entire time. He was willing to work with any special requests we had and was great to work with. I highly recommend using him for your events."
"When we were getting ready to have our wedding we knew that great food, family, and music would make a memorable event! We could not have asked for a better DJ than Alex! He is out of this world!! We were amazed at how many people came up to us to tell us, ours was the best wedding they had ever been to (and we think Alex's services had a lot to do with that!). I couldn't believe how many people were on the dance floor the entire night! He knew exactly how to keep people on their feet. Alex was extremely flexible in meeting with us via email and person to go over everything we wanted to ensure a perfect reception. Just in the short time of meeting Alex, he was able to identify mine and my wife's taste in music and knew exactly what we liked. There was never a dull moment from the time he got the party started. Alex was a great coach throughout the entire process to make sure we got the exact experience we were looking for. What an amazing day, made even better thanks to Alex!!! The best DJ with a great personality and love for entertainment."
"The night of our wedding we received very many comments regarding the music - all excellent! My favorite was a close family member that said the reason the wedding was SO much fun was because of the excellent music that Alex provided. His service on our special day is something we will never forget. If you want fun and people to dance at your wedding please choose Alex and don't think twice. Alex worked directly with us fave to face on multiple occasions to determine our personal style and how we wanted to celebrate our wedding. We now consider Alex a personal friend."
"Alex was a pleasure to work with. Alex did not require a lot of time and energy from my wife and I to prepare for the wedding, which was a huge plus! It was the same way on the day of the wedding. He did his job seamlessly and professionally. I gave Alex very little guidance on song choices for the reception and he did a great job keeping guests engaged from start to finish. Also, Alex is a very talented musician. He did an amazing job during our ceremony."
"Hiring Alex Balingit was the perfect decision for our Wedding! He's everything you could hope for in a DJ - Highly professional, great communication, generous with his time, quickly available for any questions we had and MOST OF ALL - our dance floor was FULL and BUMPIN' all night!
We wholehearted recommend Alex!"
THE GUEST'S PERSPECTIVE
"Alex provides over the top customer service to guests at his events. He doesn't wait for the music to energize a crowd, HE energizes the crowd. He does so just enough to make one think "wow, this guy is good" without stepping in and taking the spotlight away from the focus of the event. I have received numerous compliments from attendees on how amazing the DJ was. You can count on Alex to help make your event a memorable one. I highly recommend him."
"We've all been to weddings where the awkward moments were exacerbated by a deejay that spun some records but thats about it. Not so with Alex Balingit. He promises there won't be awkward moments on his part and he fulfills that promise. At my daughters wedding Alex did spin the records but it was so much more. He's great on the mic and had an incredible perceptivity for what our guests were inclined to dance to and dance we did! Great mix of songs, great beats...literally, the dance floor was filled from the first song to the last song. Our guests had a fantastic time and if I had another daughter, Alex would be my first call."
