DJ Dail Holderness

Playing What You Want to Hear!

Having DJ Dail at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding day. We had a bunch of people excited to dance, and he made sure the event flowed smoothly. I've never seen so many people out on the dance floor.... we even had a spontaneous dance battle break out in the middle of the reception! DJ Dail was absolutely priced fairly for what he provided and we are so thankful we hired him!

Thank you Dail!!!!  We had a truly spectacular evening and you were such a big part of that.  From MCing the night, to playing our requests, to helping my Dad with a little bit of extra light for his toast, to ending the night with Sweet Caroline, it was AMAZING.  Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!  You were great, thank you for ensuring the night went smoothly.  We truly had the night of our lives!!!

We could not have had a better time with Dail DJing our wedding!! We have had nothing but compliments and requests for our playlist from the wedding... it was THAT memorable. We decided to start out our playlist with some of our favorite oldies which would catch the attention of the elders in our crowd and gradually work our way up to the most recent hits! By that time, everyone was ready to get down and dance. Dail listened to every request we made and we could not have been happier with the outcome. Only regret is the fun is now over and back to reality. Thank you Dail, you really and truly made this a very special and fantastic night!

Dail was a great DJ!  He provided the music for my Dad’s 90th birthday party, and he couldn’t have done a better job.  He played the perfect music as background for the cocktail hour and dining, and then got the party going with Motown sounds, line dances and more.  He also played some of the favorites of my Dad that I gave him.  Well rounded, smooth transitions and great instincts.  I got so many comments afterwards about how much fun they had and what a great party it was.  Thank you!

Dail is amazing! He came all the way to Beaufort, NC to be my DJ! He got the crowd dancing and helped me pick out my " walk down the aisle " songs! The kids at the reception had a blast dancing with the multi-colored  lights . Dail is such a nice and personable person and I recommend him to EVERYONE !

Hi, Dail. Thanks again for a wonderful spring formal. Several students said it was the best dance we ever had, and I credit a large part of that to your skills!

             John Utz

Hi Dail!  We had an amazing time at our wedding thanks to you. You kept the party going and your lights and fog machine were amazing. Thank you again and we hope you stay in touch--if we ever throw any parties, we definitely would love to have you there!

Thanks so much for being the DJ for our wedding!  It was great!

             Emily Brigman

Dail did such a great job as a DJ for my daughter's school prom.  We asked him to cover her graduation party.  She recommended him which is no small feat given the music aficionado she is and her 18 year old tastes.   Dail did an awesome job at the party by matching the music selection and appropriateness to the attendees as they evolved over the night (small kids and adults early in the evening to all 6-20 year olds later on).  He had the dance floor full and rockin’ all night until we had to pull the plug.

Dail, I wanted to express how pleased we were with you at the wedding!  We are still getting compliments on the music.

             Derrick and Melissa Mertz

Dail was recommended to us by a family friend. We could not have been happier with the decision. Dail is a true professional who doesn't leave any detail to chance. Only a few days before the wedding, our wedding coordinator informed Dail that he would need to be there early for the ceremony (not just the reception). Dail adjusted his schedule at the last minute and was there early for the ceremony! Afterwards, the reception was a blast... all thanks to Dail!

          Colin and Amanda Miller

Dail was a fantastic DJ for our recent wedding. All of our guests enjoyed the music and he played all of the songs we requested. We would highly recommend Dail Holderness based on his outstanding performance and his professional DJ skills. It would not have been as much fun without his music. Thanks Dail!!

            Rebecca Yeager

  We could not have asked for a better experience with Dail as our DJ.  He had the ability to keep a crowd, of all different ages, on the dance floor having an amazing time all night!  The website he has for picking songs/setting a schedule was great to use and he was extremely accommodating with even very last minute requests.  He was fantastic to work with and made the whole evening awesome.  We can’t thank him enough and would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dail, just wanted to thank you again for doing such a fabulous job as DJ for Catherine & Steve's reception!! The music was great, and your announcements were right on the mark. Many of our friends told me how much they enjoyed the music. You helped make our party a huge success!

            Margaret Nicholson

Dail was amazing! He contacted me in advance in the months prior to the wedding to help plan things out, which was wonderful! He took all of my ideas and made them happen. We didn't really have that many songs that we added to the playlist for him, but he took those songs and played things that were spot-on for our music taste! All of my friends said the music was AWESOME and there were so many people dancing the whole night! I was very impressed by Dail and would highly recommend using him!!

            Jessica Cornwell


Dail was fantastic about responding rapidly to any contacts and was key in keeping our wedding cocktail hour and reception going smoothly. Our first dance song was not a common song, but when I contacted him to ask about finding it he searched it out and got right back to us with it. Part of my family is deaf and he was on the ball when I asked for visual cues and specific announcements for their benefit. He was also open to extending the dance time if we needed to, and kept the party moving well. Being a high-strung person, I had numerous vendor problems during our wedding planning, but not with Dail. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

            Sabrina Wood Owens

DJ Dail did an outstanding job of keeping our wedding guests on the dance floor!  He is also incredibly easy to work with and has a huge collection of songs to choose from.  He gets our highest recommendation to anyone looking for a DJ!

             Katie Masel

Dail was professional, organized, friendly, and a lot of fun to work with. We loved using his website to plan details before the big day and it was really great to be so relaxed and know Dail was taking care of the music, following a schedule for the night, and making sure everything ran smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect DJ!             

            
Hannah Lindsey

It was great working with you.  You did a great job!

          Amy Pavuk


Dail did a fantastic job. He kept our guests interested and fulfilled all of our requests seamlessly.   

            Brandi Law


We chose DJ Dail to assist us with our wedding reception and it was definitely the right choice.  He was very professional and worked closely with us throughout the entire process.  We had special requests for family traditions and the first dance to surprise our family and friends and he was more than accommodating with them. He keeps you organized and makes sure that you feel well prepared for your event.          

               Kyla & Ben Moehring

He was a great dj for my wedding! All the songs I requested were used and he knew exactly what songs to get everyone out on the dance floor. He worked very well with us and made my wedding reception go smooth! Would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a dj!

                  
      Ashley Pericho Nutt

10,000 thank-you’s Dail!  You rocked the party!  Totally will be a reference for you Dail!          

               Holley Broughton

DJ Dail was a blast to have at our wedding reception. He was on top of all the music we wanted to hear and more than willing to play any requests we had.  He was very friendly and professional, everyone enjoyed him being there. He would be a great addition to any party or event!

                Christy and Travis Flinchum

Thank you DJ Dail for making my nephew’s pre wedding party so much fun! You were a delight to work with and made the planning so easy.  All the guests enjoyed a fun night of dancing. It is with pleasure I recommend Dail. 
        
               Laura Hall

DJ Dail is the perfect DJ for a wedding (or any other event). I only wish we
were as organized and prepared as he was. A great time! 

             Jeff Nieman 

DJ Dail is wonderful! He's an awesome MC and the music selections were perfect for our wedding reception! He is very professional, friendly, courteous and accommodated all of our music requests. Our wedding guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would highly recommend using DJ Dail for any event. 

              Korey & RJ Shields

Dail DJ’d our wedding reception (Oct 2011) and did a fabulous job. He took the time to help us plan and coordinate all the music & MC details in advance, including coordination w/ some live music. His years of experience showed and professional approach amidst the chaotic rush of finalizing all the wedding details helped ensure our reception ran smoothly. We didn’t have to worry about anything. Our families had a blast and Dail’s music played a key part. Thanks Dail!

        
      Mark Korey

Thank you for doing such a great job with the music for Kelly's birthday.  The friendliness and professionalism were a great combination.  The music was perfect, and we had a wonderful time dancing.  You picked great music to complement all the ones we requested.  Thanks again for a job well done.

Dail did an amazing job DJing at our wedding reception!  He's friendly, professional, and had a perfect sense of what type of music to play during each phase of the evening, from dinner to the very last dance. So many of our friends and family have mentioned how much they loved the music. He incorporated our song requests and picked tons of great music himself. People were dancing like crazy until the very end of the reception. I can't recommend Dail enough. 

          Cathy Schetzina


Thank you again for helping to make our wedding spectacular!  We hope we can help to steer a little business your way since you were so good to us and did such an awesome job!

   Nikki Carter

Dail did an unbelievable job- we are still talking about all the great music he played. We gave him little to no instructions, just let him do his thing and we were so happy with his service! If you ever need a recommendation, please let us know!

         Lauren Sigmon

My reception on October 18 went really well! Dail did a good job and people were on the dance floor all night. Thanks to you for doing a nice job.

         Jill Barham

Without a doubt, Dail is the only DJ we would ever consider using for our gatherings! The last time he played for us, the only thing that could have been better would be to have a bigger dance floor.

         Bo Thompson

Dail did a tremendous job at our wedding reception. He played the songs we liked and gave good suggestions for songs throughout the reception. We would completely recommend him to others.

        Jill & Greg Molek

He did an excellent job of feeling out the crowd and incorporating requests.  Everyone really enjoyed themselves

        Janelle Gamez Tornwall

Dail did a wonderful job at our wedding and helped with planning my music prior to the wedding.  He provided great suggestions around typical music that is played and was also quite flexible with some of my “funky” requests for music.  He was very professional, has a great DJ voice, and was well organized.  I had peace of mind that Dail had “all things music” completely handled.
