"I've never seen so many people dance at a wedding" "Thank you, you made it stress free" "I remember why we chose you to be our DJ, you have such a nice voice!" "Great music, you were great on the mic, really got them going" "You played what I asked for, if you didn't have it you found it" "Great Job Tom, Thanks" "We had a wonderful time and were we to do it over again we'd choose you. Peter said he'd tell someone to do a wine country wedding just so you could work it. Thank you!" Many of these quotes come from my post event survey. It asks how much did the DJ's performance effect your overall experience at this or any other event you have attended. So far nearly every single one has come back stating 80, 90, or 100 percent! That tells me that at five to ten percent of the budget of most weddings a DJ is a bargain, at least a great one is! Every single one them says they would absolutely feel good about recommending me and many have! If you would like to see some or all of these just ask at our introductory meeting. "I just wanted to take a moment to write and thank you for the work you've done with me over these past years. I couldn't begin to count the number of times I've sent you to perform at weddings, corporate events, fraternity parties...you name it, I've probably had you DJ one. Amidst all that variety, the one thing that has remained consistent has been the positive feedback I've received from all the clients. I appreciate your willingness to accommodate the often unusual and trying conditions I routinely heap upon you. I may not express it, but your early arrivals, pressed tuxedoes, and general diligence in satisfying my clients has always impressed me. There's a reason you're the first DJ I call when I'm hired on a night that I'm already personally engaged. What else can I say but keep up the good work? It's DJ's like you that have helped me create the successful company I have today, and I want to make sure you are aware of that. I know that you often work independently, so please feel free to use this letter in any way you see fit in promoting yourself. I'm always available as a reference to any of your prospective clients. P. S. I would not have trusted my sisters wedding to any other DJ. I knew you would do a good job and you did!" "Earlier this year, I was fortunte to have the disc jockey services of Tom Appel for my brothers wedding reception. It was held in a lovely room at the Officer's Club in San Francisco's Presidio. The Presideo Army Base is notorious for it's "maze-like" quality, therefore I was particularly impressed by his promptness. When considering a music source for this occasion, my family and I were looking for versatility. Ambience as well as a wide selection of musical genres were important as the attendees were to be diverse in age and background. Furthermore, we wanted a group that was accomodating and attentive to our needs so that when certain traditional parts of the reception occured, there would be appropriate accompaniment. Needless to say, Tom and his group were all of the above and more. Following this event, I continued to recieve compliments on their services and have since recommended them for other important happenings. In closing, the level of professionalism displayed by Tom and his group are hard to come by in age where everyone with two turntables seems to be in the disc jockey business. If quality musical entertainment is what you're after, I highly recommend Music By Tom Appel." These are actual quotes taken from thank you notes and letters. Some of the quotes both here and on the feedback page are verbal quotes so you'll just have to take my word for them, but they were stated exaclty as they appear. Some of the numerous places I have entertained people include Oakhurst Country Club in Clayton, San Francisco City Club, Heather Farms in Walnut Creek, Rincon Center in downtown San Francisco, Hong Kong East Ocean in Emeryville, Yank Sing (inside Rincon Center) in San Francisco, Empress of China Restaurant in San Francisco's China Town, The Cliff House where San Francisco meets the Pacific Ocean, The Brazillian Room in Tileden Park located in the Berkeley Hills, The Carneliean Room in downtown San Francisco, Stanford Park Hotel in Palo Alto, La Playa in Carmel by the sea, Monterey Plaza Hotel in downtown Monterey, The Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, The Saint Francis Hotel at Top of the Mark in San Francisco, Palo Alto Hyatt Regency, The Radison in Sacramento, The Four Points Sheraton in Livermore, The Sterling Hotel in Sacramento, Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, Cline Cellers in Sonoma, Wente Winery in Livermore, Zandanella's in Pittsburg, Sinbad's where San Francisco meets the Bay, Crystal Cruises, Signature Yachts on the SF Bay, Hornblower Yachts at the Berkeley Marina, Commodore Yachts on the SF Bay, Blue and Gold Fleet at Pier 39 on Fisherman's Wharf, Red and White at Pier 39 on Fisherman's Wharf, Chardonnay Country Club in Napa, Contra Costa Country Club in Pleasant Hill, Old Marsh Creek Lodge in Clayton. Selecting a the right DJ for your event is one of the most important decisions you will make. If it's for a wedding it may be one of the most important decisions you will ever make! It's much more than just finding someone who is competent and professional. It's important to find a good match.
