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-travelled.
 
For a professional wedding DJ, experience is key. And that doesn’t just mean having dozens of weddings under their belt. It’s the experience of knowing a certain city, of working a particular venue, and of 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.

Dow Oak Events is professional, affordable and perfect for your event. We hired Mason as our DJ for our beach wedding. He was so attentive, took requests, listened and executed our wishes perfectly. We expressed to him that we wanted our group on the dance all night and he delivered!! I would absolutely recommend this company and if at all possible, Mason is your guy!

Graham was the BEST DJ we could’ve asked for! Extremely friendly and great at what he does. Everything was perfectly on schedule, great music was played, and he went out of his way to talk to all our guests. Highly recommend!!!

Mason was the best DJ we could’ve asked for at our wedding. He arrived early and was very prepared. We were beyond thrilled to have such a good DJ that also fit into our wedding budget! We would definitely recommend Mason for future events.

To say that Ryan did a great job is an understatement. Ryan literally saved our wedding day! We hired a violinist to cover the ceremony and cocktail hour. Well 5 minutes before we are about to head out we got the worst news anybody could get on there wedding day. The violinist never showed up and when we call her she says "OMG its Saturday?". Just as the panic started to set in Ryan shows up early! We told him our situation and he takes down our songs for the ceremony and says "give me 15 minutes". 15 minutes later we head out and it was the perfect ceremony! He did a great playlist for cocktail hour as well. We were all so impressed by how smoothly everything went given the amount of pressure and that Ryan had no time to prepare for this. The reception was amazing and Ryan played the perfect song at the perfect times. There is no way we could thank Dow Oak Events more for what they did. They saved our wedding day from being a catastrophic mess!

Freddie was our DJ with dow oak events - and let me just tell you, I don't think we could have picked a better person to handle our music. He really got our vibe. Also, he was very amenable to last minute requests for songs, announcements, etc. Dow Oaks has an amazing website with a client portal for organizing your event, and they're really helpful when it comes to walking you through it step by step. Great experience with this company as a whole, but I can't reccomend Freddie enough! Definitely one our favorite vendors!

So we were scrambling for a DJ last minute. Thank goodness Dow Oak Events had an opening! They did a great job of communicating and making the planning of our night easy and simple. Words can not describe how amazing DJ Kameron Utterback was for our wedding. She was so friendly and accommodating for us. She kept everyone at our wedding dancing the entire time and did an outstanding job being our MC. I would highly recommend her for you next wedding DJ

I used Dow Oak as my DJ and for my photo booth and I would do it all again 1,000%. They were awesome! Freddie met with me in advance to get a feel for the vibe of the wedding, and then showed up at the ceremony and NAILED IT! The music was exactly what I love to listen to and we had folks getting down! They were there hours in advance and set-up and ready to go. Everyone loved the photo booth, and I loved that they brought all their stuff (table included) and that I got copies of everything in a photo book. They also emailed me electronic versions of the photos within days. Use them! The value, the experience, the fun, it was all there!

We had an amazing experience using Dow Oak. Freddie was so friendly and personable, and just an awesome DJ - sound was great, and he played the songs we asked for, didn't play the songs we didn't want to hear, and threw in an awesome mix of his own choices that went right along with our style. Nice flow from song to song - I just kept dancing the whole night! Highly highly recommend Freddie, and really the whole Dow Oak experience was so easy. They have a great website to help plan song selection and flow of the whole day - really easy to use. We didn't opt for lighting or any of the other extras (our ceremony/reception was pretty simple), but music location change from ceremony site to reception site was flawless. Seriously great team, great value, amazing experience!

We had an amazing experience with our DJ Erik! He made the whole process seamless, and made me feel confident that we had made the right decision from the very beginning! We had a few last minute additions and changes - he rolled with the punches, read the vibe of our crowd and kept the music on point!! We would recommend Dow Oak to anyone - not only we’re they super fun to work with, they’re also really reasonably priced!!!!

We love weddings in the mountains. From the Biltmore to the Century Room, Asheville is one of our favorite places to set up shop. Experiencing the Land of the Sky is always a pleasure.

Reviews From Asheville

"WOW! We didn't realize how much went into what DJs do! Not only did Henry throw THE BEST dance party but he also coordinated the evening so that the entire wedding was absolutely seamless. I have been to other weddings where there were parts of the night that had an awkward silence, there was a single second that was awkward the entire evening, it was PERFECT. He was such a quick responder (which to a bride is everythinggg) and very professional!! Dow Oaks planning site made it all so simple and our DJ made sure he played all the music we love. 10 out of 10 would recommend, can't thank you enough Henry!!"

DJ Freddie with Dow Oak did an awesome job DJ'ing our wedding reception and we can't recommend him enough! He was very responsive leading up to our wedding day and truly understood our vision for music during our cocktail hour and reception. He didn't just play songs as some DJs do - he read the crowd all night, making sure everyone was having a great time and also added awesome mixes/transitions into the songs. Overall, Freddie was a great DJ and MC for our wedding reception and we are so glad we went with Dow Oak.

Mason at Dow Oak was such an advocate for us during our reception. Unfortunately, so many of our guests stayed on the outskirts of the dance floor but he called them out and kept the party going! Dow Oak is such an incredible value and I love their mission and how they operate their business model. User friendly and so comfortable!

I was SO insanely impressed with DJ Erik and the whole Dow Oak Events team. From the get go, their prices were reasonable and they were incredibly responsive (it took less than five minutes to hear back from them, I kid you not). Their website is easy to use and they were kind enough to send email follow-ups for playlist and payment deadlines. DJ Erik (or more apt DJ Erok) is very talented and kept almost my entire guest list on the dance floor for close to three hours. He is adept at reading the crowd and blending genres- many times my guests would scream with excitement at a song they hadn't heard since middle school. I can't say enough great things. I highly recommend Dow Oak Events and DJ Erik in particular! We received so many compliments on how great our DJ was!

Erik was great. He was very flexible in accommodating our event. Furthermore, he did a perfect job in keeping the party going. Sound system was nice and his extra lights were awesome. The lights added a different environment/vibe to the party that people really appreciated. He was very professional. He showed up on time, dressed presentable, and meet all of our deadlines. Perfect DJ for the job! We got many compliments from attendees who raved at his mixing skills.

Erik was awesome! We met Erik in the very early stages of Dow Oak starting and it's no wonder it has taken off! Erik was with us every step of the way and made it all about us. He was truly flexible especially when mother nature decided to drop a few inches of snow at the end of March. You would have thought we planned our day that way. From the ceremony to reception, everything was seamless. Once the party got going, it was like he knew what we were thinking. We left a lot of the music up to him and he did not disappoint. We would throw another wedding just for the music. Step 1 of your vendor search is to hire these guys!

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 to any of our friends and we will use him in the future if ever needed! Thank you Graham for being so AWESOME at what you do! Thanks, Kendra and Jordan Matthews

DJ Freddie Fred recently lit up our dance floor at our wedding. I mean, everyone was on the dance floor. The variety of music appealed to everyone and he was very good about reading the audience. Everyone kept coming to us and telling us that our DJ was “fire” and to us, that was very important. Our guests had a fabulous time and so did we. Memorable, for sure. Would highly recommend him, he did a phenomenal job. Thank you Freddie!

We really appreciated knowing that all bases had been covered well before the wedding day. DJ Erik was fantastic at reading the crowd and responding with the music he played. There were times where most of our guests were outside playing lawn games rather than inside on the dance floor, but DJ Erik was never overbearing in trying to get people back to the dance floor. But he also never stopped playing awesome music! We couldn't be happier with our choice to book Dow Oak Events for our wedding.

The day was AWESOME! Josh and I both agree that you were one of our favorite vendor experiences throughout that day and Freddie in particular completely surpassed our expectations. He was able to not only roll with our (slightly abnormal) musical tastes, but he rolled with all the punches and surprises (enter the bagpiper that was unbeknownst to me) we threw at him.

He did not just agree to do what we said, but he became an autonomous actor in the whole process, understanding what we wanted to hear based on our reactions, the little surprises we had for each other and for our guests, and on our previous discussions. At no point did we feel we needed to address preferences with him or ask for changes. He had seamless music transitions, a great presence at the reception, and was both professional and friendly.

We would highly recommend him and your company to anyone in the future!

Any time spent in the Triangle is a good time. And the Bull City is no exception to that. From The Cotton Room to the Tobacco District, we’ve had nothing but good times at every Durham event we’ve hosted.

Reviews From Durham

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!!)

Cameron was our DJ and she kept our guests on the dance floor all night! At our initial meeting with her she asked what we wanted from our reception and we both said “A PARTY!” She certainly delivered. Dow Oak was one of the top choices we made for our wedding. Music was super important to us so made finding a DJ service a priority. From the very first meeting at a wedding show, to the initial on-site meeting with Cameron, the final walk-through with her the day before the wedding, to the actual ceremony and reception itself everyone we came in contact with at this vendor was amazing. They are more than just a DJ service. They provided music and Emcee services for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception even though all three events were in separate spaces of our venue. They also provided uplighting for our reception which transformed the space completely and an awesome DJ table to hide all their equipment and add to the elegant reception look. Another wonderful feature Dow Oak offers is an online planning tool and profile where Kyle and I were able to fill out the timeline of events, list all announcements that needed to be made, and plan music for each part of the day. We were a DIY wedding so this helped us tremendously in knowing what we needed to think about. Throughout the night Cameron joined us on the dance floor to lead line dances, made any announcements we needed, and brought an extra mic so my husband could sing “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at the reception 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 Cameron was throughout the entire day. 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!

Ryan was great and flexible with us and my venue. When he noticed it was hard to hear in the dining room- he walked to each table instead of calling out table numbers for dinner. Thank you Ryan!

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. Then, I met with Erik before the big day and we went over every line, making me feel confident it was going to go great. Erik is a great guy and an excellent DJ. He 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

Kameron was super helpful with planning out a timeline and choosing our music and she was super flexible when some things didn’t quite go as planned! She was super friendly as well. Thank you guys so much for giving us a wonderful experience before, during, and after our event.

You MUST book DowOak for your Photobooth! The communication was wonderful leading up to the wedding, our attendant (May) was so kind and sweet and the Photobooth was the HIT of the night. The open air concept is actually the coolest! I would peek over at the Photobooth from time to time throughout the night and May had the biggest smile on her face and you could tell she was having fun. She gave us an album of all pictures at the end of the night and I received the digital files in less than a week after. Super impressed. This was very affordable and the service was worth it all. Thank you so much. I would definitely recommend 1000 times

Oh my goodness. I can't tell you how AMAZING my DJ, Ryan Green and Kameron Utterback of Dow Oak Events were at my wedding. Seriously, they kept the party alive the WHOLE NIGHT. They played EXACTLY what I wanted without me having to ask twice. I asked for the artist James Arthur to play for my cocktail hour (Not many people know who he is outside of his one song). The very first song played was by him and I look over and both of them and they were both vibing out just as much as I was. The music was the most important part of my night considering I was a dance major in college and about 1/3 of the guests there were also dance/cheer/theater majors so we were looking to have a good time and dance the night away. Ryan did not disappoint. He was also very good about making sure things happened as smoothly as possible and how my husband and I wanted. I would recommend them 10/10 times!!!

Their website also made it VERY easy for me to make sure the timeline and order of events were perfect. It is very user friendly. The price was exactly right. I honestly got so lucky with them! Thank you Ryan and Kameron!!

Erik was awesome! His planning sheet he sent out beforehand helped with my planning and made sure everything was covered (even things I hadn't thought about). He was also very flexible, we were originally not doing toasts during the reception, but due to some things happening we had to squeeze them in. He was happy to help and went with the flow of things and guests weren't even aware of our error/last minute changes.
During our meeting we talked about music that we liked and that I knew my friends enjoyed and he did a great job feeding off of the crowd to know which song would be a hit next! The lighting and setup worked and looked great with our venue.
Thanks Erik for helping make our special day so fun!

We hired Dow Oak Events based on all the wonderful reviews they have online. Those reviews were absolutely correct! The planning process was super easy and helped me feel confident that our wedding would feel like us. With DJ's you never really know what to expect but Mason did a wonderful job of listening to what we like and making sure that our day represented us. He was very professional and fun and did a great job of keeping the party going.

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!

Seriously, Dow Oak and specifically Freddie were INCREDIBLE. One month before the big day and our previously booked DJ BAILED! Dow Oak emailed back almost immediately after the inquiry and within two days we had banged out a contract and gotten the ball rolling- crisis adverted! I cannot say enough about the outstanding communication of the company!

The week before the wedding Freddie reached out to firm up our plans and meet for a face to face, normal run of the mill stuff. NOTHING could have prepared us for what a rockstar he would be the day of. Not only was he a GREAT DJ and a super sweet human, he was valuable (and willing!) set of hands when it started pouring rain five minutes before the outdoor ceremony. He was flexible and extremely accommodating, he truly went above and beyond and we could not have done it without him.

HIRE THESE PEOPLE, for real!

Working with Dow Oak Events was a breeze! They were super communicative and use a planning platform that gave me peace of mind. I spoke with Freddie a couple times before the wedding and had no doubt that he would keep things running smoothly. On the day of, he arrived early to set up, made sure he knew how to pronounce everyone's names, and kept the party going all night! I had a blast singing and dancing the night away 🙂

And we were right, our wedding day went off without a hitch. All the music for the ceremony was perfect, and people danced the whole reception! Would ABSOLUTELY tell anyone to go with Dow Oak Events (and especially Henry)!!!

I can’t recommend Dow & Oak Events them enough! Freddie was our DJ and he was very polite and helped us through the planning process by setting up an apt with us to meet him. He was so kind to meet us half way since we live in Durham and he in Greensboro. I felt very unorganized when it came to songs, dances and my timeline in general but Freddie was very professional and helped us all the way through the night. 10/10!

I had such a great experience with Dow Oaks from the moment I booked them. I was seriously impressed with the speediness of their responses to every question I had. They have you fill out a form so that they know your music taste and requests for the wedding. Music was one of the more important details of the wedding for my husband, and he was very pleased. They even call before the wedding to make sure they have the details and name pronunciations correct. DJ Erok was awesome! Our timeline ran behind but he still made sure that we got some good dancing in, which was important to me! The dance floor lighting really set the mood too. Everyone had a blast at our wedding! Thanks Dow Oak Events and DJ Erok!

We met Erick about one month before our wedding, he only thought we were a little crazy for hiring a DJ that close to our wedding day, he introduced us to Mason that week. We really aren’t planners but that’s OK, Dow Oak Events made up for that. They have thought of everything; they provided a wedding planner which lists every part of the ceremony and reception. If you have specific music you would like, they will find it, if you don't, they will provide what you need. Mason was very attentive during the reception to make sure the music changed from "cocktail hour" to "dinner music" when we were ready and then to dance music. We had a small wedding group and Mason still managed to play music to get our friends on the dance floor. Mason was organized before and during our wedding, friendly, professional, and easy to work with throughout.

Erik Massengale was the DJ at our recent wedding. We had known him a few years prior as a friend, but never really experienced his work. I, myself, am a high school teacher and have used different DJ's from around the area (within our vendor list, of course). Erik was, by far, one of the easiest and greatest people to work with. Early on, he was prepared with a layout/tentative timeline for us to look at. He was quick to respond and very personable. He has everything you could need for a wedding! He was flexible when things didn't go as planned and perfect at introductions and feeling out the crowd. He was able to work with all of our songs and did an amazing job! Definitely made our wedding night very special!!
