Hey Joe,

I just wanted to reach out and thank you again so much for such a fun evening on Friday night! Everyone had an amazing time and talked about how much fun they had especially on the dance floor! Thank you for really working with us over these past few months into making our night so special and beautiful! It flowed wonderfully and thank you for that!

You were an absolute joy to work with and we can't thank you enough! Thank you Nils for setting everything up along the way, we really appreciate how accommodating you all have been with us!
Please let me know if you need anything in the future!

Thank you again!

Best,

Michelle

Peter Shields Inn: Valerie and Will Roohan – November 23, 2019

Amazing, professional and helpful...guides me through the DJ experience wonderfully and easily!
Joe and his partner were amazing.
They helped guide me through a lot of issues I wasn’t really sure about. That made working with them a breeze.
They read and worked the crowd great!
The wedding was a hit and everyone danced throughout the reception.
Highly recommend *****

Hotel DuPont: Abby and Timothy Baron – October 11, 2019

Praying they're available for the remaining 4 kids' weddings!!! Unquestionably, THE BEST MUSIC EXPERIENCE from ceremony to send-off Double Down provided for my daughter's wedding and reception at the Hotel DuPont in Wilmington Delaware. Professional from the outset, emceed as needed, and then played music endlessly without breaks, awkward pauses, etc.. Our age range was 2 months to 92 and EVERYONE danced. So much fun, they catered to a family surprise request we had for the bride. They totally "read" the audience and kept the music coming uninterrupted. The drummer, Aaron, was superb and added to the livelihood of the event. Joe on the "whatever it is" ran the music like it was a Mormon Tabernacle Organ with all the gadgets! These men were so professional!! Dressed appropriately, as I greatly feared this event would translate into more a "club experience", and they didn't even go near there! Kept it in line to match the dignity of the event and venue, while providing music ALL just loved, or remembered, extracting the fun, love, laughter, and great times a wedding reception should evoke amongst generations and long-time friends. I cannot heartily endorse this duo enough, and know it may be at my own peril of being able to book them again because.....EVERYONE....wanted to know....who, where, how....to contact them. My brother wants them in Denver for HIS DAUGHTER'S wedding!!! You will not regret this booking---and we THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for getting up early and doing THIS morning/afternoon wedding and reception. You guys delivered!!

Hilton Wilmington/Christiana: Morgan and Brian Sagers – September 28, 2019

Joe and Double Down made my wedding day amazing!! First we started with a FaceTime meeting to get to know each other and he got a feel for what me and my husbands vibe was. I then filled out a very detailed questionnaire which makes your wedding day totally tailored to what you and your future hubby want!! After another quick meeting the music for my day was perfected. The day of the wedding Joe was super ready and upbeat. The entire experience was amazing!
