I am getting married this summer and am looking for a DJ. I met Mark Ricahrds at a recent bridal expo...His price is reasonable, but I don't know anyone that has used him before. I can't find any reviews for him online and was wondering if anyone has any thoughts...

He wouldn't be my first choice or second. Black Tie Entertainment out of Syracuse, Big Beat DJ or Bill T would be a place to start. He was at a wedding we went to this summer and it was all about him. Arrogance was everywhere.

Black Tie Entertainment was recommended by some friends as well...will have to give them a try. I had the same feeling about Mark when I met him...

I heard he also has a propensity toward stealing shiny copper scrap metal and that he also borrows the personal vehicle of a light-in-the-loafers, pillar-of-strength type from the Town of Trenton......

I have had Mark Dj several parties and functinos and have always been happy with him. He is professional and entertaining. I plan on using him for my wedding and would reccommend him to anyone.

at least with his countdowns you will always know how long it is until the next formal event at your reception.

I've heard nothing but great things about Mark Richards. He takes time to meet with the bride and groom, his equipment sounds and looks better that most anyone else in CNY and he charges hundreds less. I was at two weddings he hosted and everyone danced to a wide variety of music with just the right amount of talk.

I work at many weddings (30 + per year). All the above are very good. DJ network has many different dj's not sure if you can choose. My faves are Majestic & Sound Investment. Highly professional and the owners are the DJ's. Not sub-contracted college students. They will meet with you several times before your day and accomodate all your wishes. Mark Richards is also very good, nice personality, willing to accomodate. Best of luck!!

Dj network doesn't exist anymore. The owner past away. They did have really good djs. The only one that still djs is the girl serena that worked with the owner. She is good also. Mark Richards and mark Montgomery are also good. Sound investment not really sure about them.

Screw all the DJ's. Hire a live band. Dj's blow. Bands rock.

Dj's over bands they can play more then just the songs they know like bands. Vast entertainment would be the best bet. I have seen the weddings and been to the one they have done. Not only is it the best lighting company in the area but the dj can spin everything like no other. Look up their website

I would never recommended Mark Richards as a DJ. He is very arrogant and I can't say anything good. I hired him for a DJ and when someone at the event lost a valuable piece of jewelry someone found it and gave it to him to announce. He made the announcement once but I never heard it. The next day it was brought to my attention that this piece of jewelry was lost so I called mark (as he was the last person to have it) and he said he left it on the DJ table when he left. This was an expensive piece of jewelry (Gold and diamond tennis bracelet) and you could tell by looking at it. He even made the comment "it did have weight to it I hope it wasn't that expensive" Why would he leave it there and not give it to me or bring it to my attention that someone lost it when I paid him at the end of the night? Why wouldn't he have given it to the head of staff at the venue? And as I recall there was nothing on that table when he left. Very unprofessional how the situation was handled and i was very disappointed I could not find this bracelet to return it to its owner (my grandmother). Once again I would NEVER reccomend hiring Mark Richards as your DJ.

Let me get this straight. You lost a bracelet. The DJ tried to help. Someone must of stolen it and you blame the DJ...silly!
