Music is an integral part of your wedding reception. Choosing the right DJ can make or break the party vibe at your event. If you want your guests dancing the night away, consider selecting a DJ with years of experience and numerous wedding receptions under his or her belt. Benjamin Doll, owner and resident DJ of Image Entertainment, founded his company in 2008 and has been spinning tunes for over 11 years.
What made you want to become a DJ?
BD: I was a broke college student and a friend suggested it to me.
What are some of the worst wedding reception songs?
BD: Even though I do like some Metal music…. it just doesn’t work at weddings.
What songs do you absolutely refuse to play?
BD: I try my hardest to stay away from the Macarena!
What’s the hottest trend for 2015?
BD: Custom wedding party intros are trending this year. As far as music, EDM and hip hop are now merging more than ever. I think we will continue to see that. I also am hopeful that funk is coming back.
What’s the craziest first dance that you’ve witnessed at a wedding?
BD: I have seen countless choreographed dances, but the most memorable is a groom that had to run off halfway through the song to the bathroom because he had too many post ceremony spirits.
If you could give people one word of advice for their upcoming event, what would it be?
BD: Don’t lose sight of the reason for the day. Remember that as long as two people say “I Do,” the day is a success. Everything on top of that is just icing on the cake.
Favorite song: “Toes” Zac Brown Band
Favorite singer/band: Prince
