Dow Oak Events

Best Wedding DJs in North Carolina

THE REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

An NC Events DJ That Gets It.

Experience is important. Which is why experience is something we pride ourselves in. Our DJs aren’t just thoroughly trained, they’re well-traveled.

For a professional wedding DJ, experience is key. And that doesn’t mean having dozens of weddings under their belt. It’s the experience of knowing a certain city, working a particular venue, and working with local vendors. It’s being comfortable in their surroundings no matter where those surroundings are. We believe these factors are invaluable in creating a well-rounded wedding DJ.

We get that there’s no substitute for experience. We get it because we’ve been there.

The DJ we had, Kameron did her job perfectly! She even went above and beyond to go around and let tables know when they could go up to the buffet. At one point there was a change of schedule and she just smoothly went a long with it! Thank you Kameron for helping us make our big day awesome!

Best dj ever! If you are looking for a DJ to keep the party going, choose Dow Oaks Events. They are awesome! We had Freddie Swinney and he helped keep our wedding reception moving smoothly and we did not have to worry about anything! Also, the music selection kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. Thank you guy so much, we had a blast!

GET THE PHOTO BOOTH!!! It was wonderful, a huge hit with our guests and we got the photo book with it and have copies of all of our guests photos now. I can not recommend Dow Oaks more!!!

Awesome DJ! Dow Oak Events is the way to go! Out of all the vendors that I worked with for my wedding, they were the most responsive and flexible. Graham was so great, he kept the party going all night long! What a great group of people! Graham drove all the way to Raleigh and was set up earlier than expected and even started the music early. We were so thrilled!

I am very glad we went with Dow Oak Events. We had Graham as our DJ and he is all 5s in my book. He really knocked it out of the park and took the challenge of mixing music of three different cultures (Latin, Indian, and American) and killed it. No one ever left the dance floor and on top of that he was especially friendly and easy to work with.

Dow Oak and especially Henry were phenomenal! He was so helpful and friendly. And when we talked before the big day he really helped quell the anxiety!! And everything ended up going soo smoothly which was AWESOME. The dance floor was crowded all night and everyone was singing along and dancing and it was really just so great. Everyone should go with Dow Oak Events for their wedding, and Henry! (If he’s available!!)

Kameron was our DJ and she kept our guests on the dance floor all night! At our initial meeting she asked what we wanted from our reception and we said “A PARTY!” She certainly delivered. Music was super important to us so we made finding a DJ service a priority. But we found out Dow Oak are more than just a DJ service. They provided everything from MC to lighting. We were a DIY wedding so their online forms helped us tremendously. Throughout the night Kameron lead dances, made all announcements, and brought an extra mic so my husband could sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” which brought the entire room to the dance floor. My wedding coordinator, mom, and I were all blown away by how hands-on and helpful Kameron was. She also fit in to our friend group perfectly and helped to bring the party!

If you’re looking for a great DJ at a great price, choose Dow Oak! There are quite a few forms to complete as you are planning, but they really do help guide the process of choosing the right music for the right moment. Graham was the DJ for our wedding and he was amazing! He made sure all of our pre-planned and unexpected song requests were met as the night went along. He helped to keep the evening flowing and the dance floor busy. Thanks to Graham’s talent, we have memories we won’t soon forget!

I could not have been more pleased with our experience with Erik @ Dow Oak Events. He made the whole music process FUN during a time when stress-levels are at an all time high. Their website portal makes logging your selections super easy and you can write down exactly what you’re looking for in the vibe for your wedding. When I met with Erik before the big day and we went over every line. He made me feel confident it was going to go great. Erik is a great guy and an excellent DJ, read the room perfectly and I still have people telling me how they can’t believe they danced for 2.5 hours straight! My biggest fear was nobody dancing and boy did he calm that fear! I would recommend ANYONE in the NC area to book with Dow Oak! 13/10 would book again for any event

He was very accommodating to our specific K-pop music taste and truly listened to our need to create the best celebration we could ask for. We found Freddie to be attentive, energetic, friendly, and extremely talented DJ and MC. He worked well with our other wedding vendors to ensure a smooth progression of the day. His invaluable skills ignited the dance floor and kept it entertaining from the beginning to the end. The dance floor lighting definitely took our dance floor to the next level!

If you are looking for a DJ that will not break the bank or take up the majority of your wedding budget AND keep everyone on the dance floor …. Dow Oak Events is the perfect fit! We have gotten tons of compliments from our guests that our DJ was awesome! Freddie Sweeney was professional, easy to work with, super friendly and creative in the right ways. He allowed us to feel that our input was important, but also allowed us to trust him to take the reins. A great DJ was important to us, but also one of the areas of our wedding planning that we felt we didn’t have enough recommendations that fell into our price range, but were also great DJs. Freddie and Dow Oak exceeded our expectations and put our fears of a bad DJ that couldn’t keep people dancing to rest!

Dow Oaks definitely didn’t disappoint with DJ Graham! He told us that he was the “best of the best” and I agree 100%! From the first time I talked to him he made me feel at ease instantly and truly made me feel like we could go to him if we needed anything. The day of our wedding he was awesome! He kept the crowd going and the experience with him overall felt like he was more of a guest than a DJ! He joked around and had conversation with us rather than just being strictly about business! Graham was very accommodating when my husband notified him moments before the wedding that he wanted someone else to do a toast and you could tell that he truly enjoyed what he does! Our night wouldn’t have been the same without Graham! We will definitely refer Graham.

We had the pleasure of having Kameron as our wedding DJ and she provided such a fantastic experience. Communication was great leading up to the wedding and she gave all sorts of helpful suggestions in our final meeting before the wedding. The day of the wedding she was all smiles and so attentive. We had some last minute changes in the bridal party and she STILL didn’t get a thing wrong. She even jumped on the dance floor with us a few times when we fumbled over some of the line dances. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thank you Kameron and Dow Oak Events!!!

DJ Bradley Rocks! We had DJ Bradley from Dow Oak Events for our wedding, and he was AMAZING! The whole process was so easy and enjoyable for us. Bradley was so fun and has an amazing personality. The dance floor packed the whole night, and our guests had an amazing time!

Would highly recommend! We had DJ Ryan for our wedding and he did a phenomenal job leading up to our wedding and on the actual wedding day. He answered all of our questions during the two pre-wedding calls that we had with him and knew all of the key moments in our schedule for the day. Ryan arrived on time to the venue and was able to transition quickly from our ceremony site to our reception location. He also wonderfully balanced confirming scheduled moments with us while also giving us space to enjoy the event and not feel like we were rushed or had to be on point throughout the day.

Kameron was amazing! She worked so hard to make out wedding night absolutely perfect. We had no idea what we were doing and she just gave us tips and changed the schedule as needed and helped direct people where they needed to be. If she wasn’t there it would have been a disaster! She deserved every penny spent to have her there!

Freddie, our DJ was awesome, can’t say enough nice things about him. Very professional and patient with us as we tend to procrastinate at times. From first contact through the day of the wedding., they were very responsive and on top of things. Listening to what we wanted and making suggestions we hadn’t even thought about, making my daughters wedding even more special. I even had several wedding guests saying it was the best and most fun wedding they had ever been to. Great value too!!!

Kameron was the best DJ we could have asked for! Kameron was awesome! She played great music and kept everyone dancing all night long. Since our ceremony and reception were held in the same location, we had to work around a tight turn around and she was more than willing to setup a little early before the ceremony and then come back after to finish. If we ever need another DJ, she will definitely be our first call.

Dow Oak Events was amazing for our wedding. Our DJ Ryan read the crowd, was professional, on-time and courteous. Honestly without Ryan and Dow Oak Events the night wouldn’t have been the same. Their photo booth was actually one of the nicest I’ve ever seen and they put together a scrap book for us from all our guests. I can’t say enough about how impressed I was with this group.

If you are looking for a DJ that will not break the bank or take up the majority of your wedding budget AND keep everyone on the dance floor …. Dow Oak Events is the perfect fit! We have gotten tons of compliments from our guests that our DJ was awesome! Freddie Sweeney was professional, easy to work with, super friendly and creative in the right ways. He allowed us to feel that our input was important, but also allowed us to trust him to take the reins. A great DJ was important to us, but also one of the areas of our wedding planning that we felt we didn’t have enough recommendations that fell into our price range, but were also great DJs. Freddie and Dow Oak exceeded our expectations and put our fears of a bad DJ that couldn’t keep people dancing to rest!

After the wedding, everyone was telling us how much fun they had and Freddie was a big part of that.

We had DJ Freddie for our wedding and had such a great experience! We gave him some vague information on what we liked and what we didn’t and told him we trusted him to roll with it and did a great job! I walked down the isle to a song that had just instrumental music in the beginning (first 30 seconds) but wanted that to be a little longer so I only had to use one song for everyone in my party to walk to. He was able edit it for me to double the time of the instrumental music part which was an odd request I thought but it was wonderful! During the reception we had multiple people say they loved the song choices and multiple people ask for his information after the wedding as well!

Courteous, highly responsive, and super friendly! Henry was a true professional for our wedding. The ceremony had to get underway ahead of the planned time due to rain, but the playlist was executed perfectly. Everything from the requested announcements to the microphones went flawless. Henry also orchestrated our introductions and wedding game with enthusiasm and skill. During the course of the event Henry would communicate with us to make sure everything was on track. Additionally, during the 8 months or so that we had DJ Henry booked, he was super responsive and would meet with us whenever we asked. When we needed to tweak the timeline to work with our photographer’s timeline better, he unlocked our wedding planning documents so we could go ahead and change everything 2 nights before the actual wedding day!! We will recommend your service to anyone who would ask without hesitation.

Hiring Dow Oaks for our reception was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Working with DJ Graham was an absolute pleasure.

If you want a killer DJ and someone who will make your reception the best it can be, hire Dow Oaks!

Awesome DJ. We hired through Dow Oak Events for our DJ for our wedding reception and were lucky enough to have Mason. Mason was GREAT! Not only did he set up phone calls with us to get a clue on what we were looking for and to get a feel on our personalities, he really did an outstanding job during the reception. I was super impressed by how early he was there to set up! He moved the evening along, just as we discussed before hand. He played a healthy mix of what everyone wanted to hear that accommodated both us and our wedding guests. He was super flexible and was able to make changes on the fly, which was super impressive! I’m super sad the night is over, because I would definitely hire him again!

Loved Dow Oak! My sister was very worried about picking the perfect DJ for her wedding. I found Dow Oak online and was initially impressed by their website and reviews. Once we hired them and specifically Kameron, I continued to be impressed. We were all SO HAPPY with Kameron, through the planning process but mostly the day of! She was everything I needed in a DJ! We also got the Dow Oak photo booth and had so much fun! We couldn’t be happier with their energy and flow and the pictures came out great! Please consider Kameron and Dow Oak, they are highly recommended!!!

So easy and so great! Dow Oak was so easy to work with and made my life easier because it was one less thing I had to worry about. DJ Graham was awesome and listened to everything we told him we wanted. He was also ready with suggestions if there was something I wasn’t sure about. We had the best time at our reception and would 100% choose them again if we had to do it over.

DJ Bradley from Dow Oak events was an amazing DJ, not to mention his accent that drew the crowds attention quickly. Everything went as smooth as possible, he was more than willing to adapt to song changes/games we played and seemed like he was having an awesome time! We live up in MA and wish we could refer him to our friends to use up here. Absolute pleasure having DJ Bradley at our wedding, highly recommended!!!

Wow, Freddie was awesome! Before our big day he contacted us and walked step by step through the entire day and got our input. He even made sure we sent him links to the songs we wanted to make sure that he had the correct version! He was so adapted and flexible even with our wedding running behind schedule! Our guests had an awesome time and were all out on the dance floor!

We hired Dow Oak Events for our wedding and could not have been happier with our choice. Mason was amazing. He always answered our questions, was there for last minute changes we had with no complaints and most of all was so personable with us and our guests. Not to mention it was pouring for our reception outside and he was there with bells and whistles playing some jams for everyone to dance in the rain to.

He kept the party alive and everyone was dancing until the minute we were leaving the venue. He played all of our requests and read the room perfectly. Thank you Ryan!

Outer Banks Reviews

If you are looking for a DJ that will not break the bank or take up the majority of your wedding budget AND keep everyone on the dance floor …. Dow Oak Events is the perfect fit! We have gotten tons of compliments from our guests that our DJ was awesome! Freddie Sweeney was professional, easy to work with, super friendly and creative in the right ways. He allowed us to feel that our input was important, but also allowed us to trust him to take the reins. A great DJ was important to us, but also one of the areas of our wedding planning that we felt we didn’t have enough recommendations that fell into our price range, but were also great DJs. Freddie and Dow Oak exceeded our expectations and put our fears of a bad DJ that couldn’t keep people dancing to rest!

Our experience with Henry was great! He gauged the crowd very well and kept our preferences in mind, even with the hounding of some of my guests. The music was so on par, in fact, that the announcements of the bridal part had an impromptu “Rocketman” breakout before they started! It was one of the best parts of the night and I really enjoyed having him as my DJ.

Wilmington

We’ll travel anywhere. But we can frequently be found at the beach, the Port City of North Carolina. Be it The Riverwalk Landing, The River Room, or The Atrium by Ligon Flynn, we’ve loved every Wilmington celebration we’ve hosted.
