Testimonials for DJ Max

This is a mix of Emails and Testimonials. I’ve included the bodies of the Emails the Testimonials came with, to give somewhat more of a personal context to them. 

Dear Max

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know once more how grateful we are to you for being such an integral part of a fantastic wedding celebration. The sound set up for the outdoor ceremony was fantastic with the processional, signing, and recessional pieces sounding beautiful and clear. So many people commented on how great the music was throughout the night. This was also evident by the dance floor never being empty once the party got going.

We also appreciated your friendly and easy approach. Thank you Max. Please continue to spread the joy of music.

Best regards and best wishes for 2017.

Hi Max

Just wanted to thank you again for last Saturday, you did an amazing job – everything was spot on and I think you know from how many people were dancing that it was a huge success.

As an aside, thanks also for turning up beautifully dressed, I have been to weddings before when the DJ and photographers are a little on the scruffy side and it doesn’t look good – you looked the business!

Thank you again, you certainly helped to make the wedding and the night such a success.  Very sad it’s all over now!

Thank you, Max for a wonderful evening. You made the place rock! The guests were commenting on the wide range of music you had chosen. All the best for your future plans

Hey Max

I know Andrew has already text you on behalf of us both but I just wanted to individually thank you so much for your part in our wedding day, particularly during our father daughter dance. You nailed that and we are so happy with how it went, I’ve never seen the dance floor so pumping.

Thanks again 🙂

Hi Max

Cool thanks for that. I’ll pass it on. Should have warned you dad would take a special interest in what you do! (Me telling Bride what an awesome night I’d had DJ’ing and meeting her very cool Dad)

We had a great night too. Loved that we had the dance floor rocking for like a solid three hours! It was awesome! 

And you kept your promise about no Wagon Wheel! 

Let me know where I can post a testimonial for you (or just email?). And I’ll be sure to send you any good pics the photographer has when that comes through 😊

Have a good week! 


Sarah, Wedding, Zealandia (Email)


Hey Max,

Just wanted to say you totally rocked our wedding – thanks for being so damn good at what you do…the music carried us all seamlessly through everything & heaps of people have commented on how rad the tunes were! 

What an epic party! Just wished we could have stayed LONGER!! 

There was a track you played which I would love to know who it was….it was as Haydn and I were leaving & it was proper London style…can’t for the life of me remember it but had female vocals & it brought me back to the dance floor as Haydn was trying to pull me away haha! (Was Wile Out: DJ Zinc feat Ms Dynamite)

Anyway, thanks again for totally acing it for us!!!!!!!!!! 

Have a great weekend & catch you soon.

Hi Max,

I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for all your efforts on our wedding day! I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to come and speak to you – but do know I think you did an amazing job. All the best, Kim and Jonny

Hi Max,

We can’t thank you enough for Saturday night. We have had so many compliments about the music and we loved that you nailed the music for the walk down the aisle.

We are so grateful to have had someone so professional! A few of our friends are getting married in the Hawke’s bay and Wellington in the next year or so and they have already asked for your details.

If you ever need a reference for an event, please let us know we are happy to assist.

Thank you so much and we hope you got home safely!

“If you want a real good time and music that will rock the floor all night long, well do not look any further than DJ Max!!

He has a good broad knowledge of classic & new music, state of the art equipment and is a great all-types-of-events DJ.

He is passionate and a true professional giving full attention to his guests

From all ages, right to the end, everyone was dancing and I struggle to get our guests to vacate our venue, as they just wanted to carry on through the night!

I cannot fault him and I look forward to DJ Max next Gig at Black Barn”

Stephane Tran Trung, (Ex) Bistro Manager Black Barn

Hi Max,

I am so sorry we didn’t get a chance to thank you on Saturday.  But thank you so very much! You were feckin amazing and all of our guests (and us) Loved what you did! Do you have anywhere to review?  Otherwise let me know and we’d be more than happy to write you any recommendations!

Stephane was impressed too so hopefully he’ll flick you some more business!

You made the wedding day amazing and for that we cannot thank you enough!

I’ve seen DJ Max in various clubs around Wellington and was ecstatic when he was available for our wedding in March 2014 at The Old Church Hawkes Bay.

Amongst the chaos of planning a wedding Max was incredible. He met up with me straight away and quickly understood exactly what we wanted. He made it so easy, organising all the details around music, sound and lighting from start to finish for our whole day.

Max is courteous, reliable and professional, I couldn’t recommend him more.

Hi Max

Just a brief note to say thanks for doing such a fantastic job of DJ’ing at our Wedding, so many people have commented on how much they enjoyed the music, and this bride barely left the dance floor all night.

As soon as you started up the music at the ceremony, I knew I could just relax and enjoy the day. Our MC has also commented on what a professional and friendly DJ you were.

I’ll definitely recommend you to any friends in the Wellington region who are planning their weddings. One friend has recently got engaged, so watch this space 🙂

Thanks again.

Hi Max,

Thanks again for your help and expertise at our wedding, we were very impressed and you made it easy for us.

We are happy to provide the following testimonial for your website;

“Right from initially contacting Max, he was friendly, easy to deal with, kept in regular contact and listened to what we wanted for our wedding.   His wedding expertise was greatly appreciated, as we had never planned a wedding before.  Max did a fantastic job in creating a varied playlist, ensuring there was music for young and old, and at the right volume.  The day was seamless, and there is nothing we would change about Max’s service at our wedding.  Highly recommend to anyone”.

S & S Bolton, The Pines, Wellington (Email + Testimonial)

Hi Max,

We hope you had a good restful time up in the bay and that the great weather continued.  Thank you so much for the incredible job you did for our wedding.  It was spot on – and was so great having you there to take care of the sound from the ceremony through to the last dance.  We’ve put together a bit of a testimonial, which we hope will be helpful.  The only thing we are missing from the night is a photo of Bryan crowd surfing – in regards to a testimonial would a picture be worth a thousand words in this case?!

Thanks again so very much Max.  And pass on our thanks to Tracey too – as it was through the Craggy Range wedding info that we found your details – and we are so glad we did.  It was lovely to meet you and if we are in the market for another event we will certainly be in contact.

We got married at Craggy Range in Feb 2013 and hired Max as our DJ, he did such a fantastic job, we couldn’t be happier. As we live overseas, Max was able to accommodate us by arranging details over skype and email beforehand. He knew the questions to ask in order to understand the music we would enjoy. When it came to the day, Max knew exactly what he was doing and needed absolutely no prompting. He setup all the equipment for both the ceremony and the reception and went about the task effortlessly. The music on the day was spot on, from start to end. The main dance set was brilliant. It started off with a few old classics that everyone could dance to, and then seamlessly progressed onto the more recent tunes. Max was happy to take requests on the night and knew how to work the crowd. We haven’t had such fun dancing the night away since our university days! We would highly recommend DJ Max for any event.

Thanks again.

Nadine and Bryan, Wedding, Craggy Range, Havelock North (Email + Testimonial)

Hi Max,

Thanks again for the amazing job you did at our wedding!! It was so brilliant. Here are a few words from me..

Max DJ’d our March wedding and played a huge part in making it an incredibly special occasion. He was the ultimate professional and thought of everything. The sound and lighting was fantastic. But what impressed me the most was the way he created the perfect mood and ambience throughout the evening. From just a quick conversation before the event he was able to deliver exactly what we wanted. He started out with a great soulful funky sound in the early evening before launching into just the right music to get everyone up dancing as night fell. It was an absolute joy to see all our guests enjoying themselves so much on the dance floor.  Max was brilliant at reading the crowd and everyone had just the best time. He really exceeded our expectations and I can’t recommend him highly enough!

Let me know if you need anything more : )

Catch you later.

Hi Max,

Christian and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so wonderful with your music, especially on the dance floor!

We appreciated your patience in dealing with our late requests! We have had so many comments from our guests on just how good the music was, and we were absolutely stoked when the dance floor stayed full right until the end of night!

We are off on our honeymoon until late Jan when we head back to Perth – we’ll flick you through a few photos once we get them from our photographer, apparently there are some hilarious D floor shots!

Have a lovely Christmas,

When my husband and I got married, at The Royal Wellington Golf Club, DJ Max was our DJ.  I have also worked alongside Max whilst he has performed at other weddings in Wellington.  On all occasions, he’s been an amazing DJ, offering a professional service and he gives 100% effort in meeting the requirements of his clients.

The level of service and professionalism we received more than satisfied us.  Max went to great effort to arrange the music requirements for the ceremony and during the evening (a daunting task considering the differing music tastes of myself and hubby!) and on the night he played a fantastic selection of music that had everyone up and dancing and thoroughly enjoying themselves.  Not only did he arrive at the venue early, he arrived with an amazing selection of top class DJ gear, lights and superb sounds and was willing to accommodate indoor and outdoor music requirements.

We would recommend him for any function.

Kind regards

Dear Max,

Thank you for your contribution to what was a magical event at Royal Wellington Golf Club last Thursday. The crossover from Paris to Wellington went seamlessly and the entry music was truly dramatic.

You have a rare talent; we were able to share it last Thursday. On behalf of all the guests thank you for your efforts. Two daughters down – one to go – keep the date free!

Kind Regards
Roger&Adrienne Girdlestone, Royal Wellington Golf Club, Heretaunga (Email)

DJ Max,

Thanks so much for being such huge help for our wedding. You went above and beyond what we expected and were a pleasure to deal with. The music was fantastic. You listened to our tastes and came up with a play list that kept everyone up and dancing for the whole night. We have had so many comments about how great the music was.

Your help getting the sound just right in the Erskine Chapel was awesome. It was so important to us that everyone could hear us and our soloist during the ceremony and you worked very hard to make sure that happened – so thank you.

Re: Wellington DJ’S???
Reply #2 – Nov 9th, 2007, 9:54amHey there,We just had our wedding and we used a Wellington guy called Max Kelly. He was totally awesome! we paid him $1300 for the whole day but this also included accommodation because he came to Masterton for the wedding. Honestly I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be dealing with. PM me if you would like his details.Forum conversation between Brides, on www.weddings.co.nz/
