Booking with Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment was the easiest part of our wedding planning process. Our DJ, Andrew Round, was easy to reach, flexible about meeting times, laid back, yet professional. After our initial meeting, I had total confidence that he would do an amazing job. My husband, Nick, and I decided to go with the Jazz Trio for cocktail hour and dinner, then DJ after dinner.
The day of our wedding, Andrew was amazing. He had a presence that could only be described as classy. He looked as good as the wedding party in his tux! He had every detail taken care of; it was clear he knew what he was doing and he was so familiar with the venue and staff that everything was coordinated seamlessly. Every once in a while, he would check in with us to let us know what was coming up next and gave us time to finish up our mingling before we were needed to cut the cake or come up for our first dance, etc. He did so in a relaxed and well-paced manner. Never did it feel like things were dragging along or rushed.
The trio was WONDERFUL. I could have listened to them all night! Everyone commented on what a nice touch it brought to the after-ceremony ambiance. They played beautifully and it was perfect for cocktails and dinner. Not too soft, not too harsh. Got people's attention but didn't overpower conversations at the tables.
Andrew did a FABULOUS job playing fun music, appealing to different ages and genres. He really kept things lively. Nick and I had established a "No Play" list. No chicken dance, no Macarena, no Grease, etc. We also had a couple artists that we asked not be played. He respected our wishes and did so respectfully! Weeks after our weeding, we were out with friends. When a friend told us that he kept asking our DJ to play (banned artist), Andrew respectfully declined and explained our preferences in a way that was polite but firm, and with a smile. Rather than getting annoyed by his declined request, our friend was impressed with the way Andrew handled the situation. Enough so, that he wanted to make sure that he mentioned it to us!
DO NOT GAMBLE WITH ANYONE ELSE in GR; Rick Reuther's does a great job and you will not be disappointed. Ask for Andrew - he's the consummate professional!

Can not say enough good things about this DJ company. Great to work with and went above and beyond a normal DJ's job. Made the whole night run smoothly. You WILL NOT REGRET booking them!

I used Music Host Entertainment at my wedding and could not be happier with my decision. I found the company through a recommendation and am so glad I did. Jeff was my DJ and he did a fabulous job! We met together several weeks before the wedding for well over an hour to plan out every tiny detail. Jeff did the music for my ceremony and reception. Everything from the songs switching depending who was walking down the aisle to announcing introducing the bridal party and speeches went off without a hitch! They really do run all the major events so you can enjoy your night and not have to worry about timing. I prepared a song list and Jeff stuck to it super well, some guests requested songs, but he made sure he had a "do not play list" from me to make sure the few requests he did allow were okay. My friends who are engaged asked who our DJ was at the wedding because they liked him so much. We also had people comment that the music wasn't too loud, apparently at other wedding they had been to the music was so loud that you couldn't talk and it really turned people off. The music was the perfect volume, he stuck to our song list, and he ran the whole event from start to finish. If you book music host entertainment you won't regret it!!!

Music Host Entertainment was recommended to me by event manager at my venue. She had told me there was no other DJ company that she referred clients to. After experiencing the service firsthand, I totally understand why. Andrew was the DJ at my wedding. He contacted me several weeks before the wedding day with a detailed and comprehensive list of the information he needed from us, then arranged a meeting at a time/location that was convenient for us to discuss our ideas. He was organized and the meeting went quickly. He was in touch again the week before the wedding to make sure our plans were still the same and to see if we had any questions. From that point, he coordinated with the venue and needed no further assistance from me. Andrew was dressed in a black tux and looked very polished. He was in communication with us throughout the night with updates on timing so we were never caught off guard. We were most impressed by his ability to read the crowd and play music that best suited those on the dance floor. Our friends LOVED the music he played and the dance floor was packed the whole night. I don't know what the going rate for DJs is, but in retrospect I would have paid twice as music for this company's professionalism and experience.

We hired Music Host Entertainment for our recent wedding and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made! The company and staff are exceptional.
Our DJ was professional, friendly and fantastic at what he does. He ensured our evening ran smoothly and most importantly, our guest were on the dance floor the entire night! We "upgraded" and had the Jazz Trio play at our cocktail hour and during dinner. The trio sounded amazing and it was a perfect addition to our evening. I kept looking back at the trio in awe and we had multiple guests say how impressive they were.
Everyone is still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding and it is due in large part to Music Host Entertainment!

Our DJ, Andrew Rounds, did an amazing job! He was flexible with our busy schedules, he was timely and professional, and he kept us in mind as he made sure to play all of our requested songs throughout the night (trust me it was a long list).
In addition to all those wonderful things listed above, Andrew from Music Host Entertainment also played music that was enjoyed by a wide range of ages. This made our wedding fun for not only us but all of our guests too! I was continually being told after our wedding that it was the most fun they have had at wedding in a long time. I feel a big part of that compliment was due to the music played by our talented DJ.
I am not one to write reviews, but I was happy with the great service and felt compelled to share.

From our first phone conversations, to our face to face meeting, to the wedding day, it was clear Music Host Entertainment was THE BEST! Rick was great to work with, and made the process fun, simple, and stress-free. He had an extensive knowledge of all musical genres, an extremely charming and classy demeanor, and got our guests up on the dance floor and partying all night. We had a blast - I 100% recommend!!

We really can't say enough about how Rick runs his business and what a great job our DJ Andrew did! Rick was so professional initially and always got back to us in a timely manner. Andrew was amazing. He met with us personally to get to know our taste in music, set expectations for the evening, and learn everyone's name. When we ran into a conflict with the venue's event coordinator, Andrew used his lunch break to meet with us and get everyone on the same page. There were also a few hiccups on the venue's side during the reception, but Andrew handled them so well that were less noticeable. He kept the night moving and the dance floor packed. I would recommend Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment to anyone, especially if you can get Andrew!

We decided to go with Music Host Entertainment for our wedding and could not have been happier with our choice. Andrew was our DJ and his service was excellent. Not only were his music choices great (our dance floor was full all night), but he did a great job as the master of ceremonies. He kept events flowing smoothly throughout the reception, made sure everyone knew where they needed to be and made it so that we could enjoy ourselves all night without worrying about logistics. He really listened to what we wanted and made it happen, including a few special requests. We would definitely recommend this company.

Jeff was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and was very professional. He did an amazing job editing songs in the correct places for the cake cutting, wedding party entrance, etc., and had great ideas to make the evening complete without missing a beat. We had people out on the dance floor the whole night! My husband and I are very particular, and we felt completely comfortable putting the control of the evening in his hands.

We had Joel from Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment as the DJ at our 8/10/2013 wedding reception, and he did an excellent job. He really exceeded my expectations!
Joel arranged to call us before the wedding to learn about us, our guests, and the type of atmosphere we wanted to set for the evening. Based on the information that we gave (we wanted a simple, elegant reception, nothing to flashy or gimmicky), he performed flawlessly.
I really didn't expect a lot of people to dance, but Joel somehow kept the dance floor packed for the entire night! He worked all of the "favorite songs" that we'd given him, and he selected music consistent with our tastes to fill in the blanks.
Joel was also able to work in a few last minute requests, which was very much appreciated.
Everyone from Rick Reuther's Music Host Entertainment was polite and professional from initial contact, to event execution. As an out of town bride, the professionalism and flexibility were very much appreciated, as well as the flawless event execution!

We chose Music Host Entertainment for our wedding reception because we had heard DJ Joel play at a friends wedding. We really liked his laid back style and selection of music. It was very easy to communicate with Joel, he was available via phone and email, and responded promptly. We had compliments during and after our reception from family and friends on how awesome and great our DJ was. We would recommend Music Host Entertainment and especially Disc Jockey Joel to our anyone planning a wedding reception in West Michigan.

We had Kurt DJ our June wedding and would recommend him and Music Host to anyone looking for a fun and reliable DJ! Kurt really went the extra mile; editing our first dance/father-daughter songs ahead of time to fade out perfectly, coordinating with the reception venue and photographer to keep things flowing seamlessly and even giving us CDs of our dinner music to have as keepsakes.
Kurt's experience and preparation allowed us to relax and have a great night with our guests!

Joel was our DJ and he was awesome! From the very first meeting he was professional and great to work with. He handled the music for our ceremony (which was outdoor), as well as the reception. We had an unusual reception venue in that our dinner was served in a different area than the dancing, but he was able to set up in all locations and kept the music going all night. He was an excellent master of ceremonies - I especially loved our introduction. Most importantly he kept our guests dancing all night, which is exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend him.

We used Music Host for our July 6 wedding reception, and had a wonderful experience! Rick took the time to meet with us to really get know our personalities before picking a DJ for our event. When our DJ, Jim, was selected, he was very helpful in the months leading up to the wedding, and answered any questions we had. Meeting with him to go over final selections was also very helpful, and he helped us pick out the perfect music for our reception. On our big day he was ready, on time, and kept the evening flowing perfectly. I had many guests tell me how wonderful the music was, and that our DJ did a great job of keeping everyone on the dance floor. I would highly recommend Music Host Entertainment and Jim to anyone looking for a professional, high-quality DJ for their event!

We had Rick Reuther from Music Host Entertainment DJ for our July 20th wedding this past summer. We have nothing but good things to say about him. We had a meeting a couple months out to go over what we wanted the reception to be like. Rick made sure to play from a list of songs we had requested prior to the wedding and made sure the feel of the reception fit what we wanted. I would totally recommend Music Host Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ who makes the night feel special and completely your own.

I wanted a different wedding experience, something that was comfortable, relaxed and fun! I needed a DJ that "got it" and was willing to find a formula that fit us and what we envisioned. We wanted a party; NOT A WEDDING RECEPTION FOR BARBIE AND KEN. We didn't want wedding announcements and all the time honored but tireless wedding routines (first dance, garter & bouquet toss and so on). We got what we asked for and then some. Joel was dead on perfect. He handled the party beautifully, the right mix of music so that the party just grew and grew and once you joined the dance floor you never wanted to leave. It was more like a sophisticated Club experience and we had a blast. Talk with your DJ and not your parents, get the wedding you want and not some boring country club buffet dinner send off that falls flat. Dance your a-- off and remember your wedding as the Best Day Ever! I DID!

From the moment I spoke to Rick about Music Host services, I knew we would book our reception with them. Rick knows exactly how to provide and create the perfect environment for your event. He is very professional and extremely committed to elegance, class, and style so that as the bride and groom, you can enjoy the evening and leave all the details comfortably in their hands.
Our DJ was Andrew - he was very responsive and careful to play only the music we desired. He coordinated all the details and timing with our wedding reception coordinator. Andrew kept the crowd engaged with the music and dancing - he deserves a big tip! :) We were completely satisfied and enjoyed our perfect evening!!
We checked with other DJ services that cost less but nobody provided the professionalism and commitment that Rick could promise. We would book Music Host over and over again!

We used Rick for our August 17 wedding, I have nothing but great things to say. We had the band trio play during our cocktail hour which was perfect for background music and entertainment. Later we switched to using a DJ and the dance floor was packed all night long! Our guests had so much fun and I received many compliments about our music. Would definitely recommend!
