Save yourself a hassle and just book Steve Bender Productions to be your wedding DJ. They are extremely easy to work with and a great value! I live out-of-town, so I loved that they have an online planner to not only pick your songs, but communicate with your DJ. It is easy to complete your timeline, event highlights, and any other details that you want. You don't have to think of any of this. You simply use the drop down and/or enter your info. The DJ we picked was Bobby Leach. I loved that he would "tease" the night's highlights, like "Get your cameras ready. The couple will cut the cake after this song. " Our guests liked that, too! My dad and brother played guitar and sang our first dance, and Bobby had all the equipment they needed and he did a sound check with them before the reception. He said we provided him one of the most unique song requests lists he had ever seen. It included a song from our friends' band, The Sewing Circle. Not only did he buy their song and play it, he gave a shout out to them and plugged their album! He played every song we requested, and some were rare finds. The sound volume was just right, so that our guests didn't have to scream to converse. I think he had an amazing lighting package and he even brought along glow necklaces/bracelets for the kids and young at heart! Also, my mom asked if we could have a discount for paying early, and they said yes! They are the best!

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

Wow! Thank you soooo much for your review. We are so happy we were able to provide the entertainment for your celebration. You're right, Bobby is top notch and one of the most requested DJ's in not just our company, bu the entire area! Over 35 years of experience doing what he does really shows. Luckily, all of our DJ's are highly trained an experienced with a minimum of 10 years DJ experience! I'll make sure Bobby knows how highly you think of him, and as the owner I want to thank you for the wonderful experience we had working with you and your family.

DJ Bobby was Great!

Overall DJ Bobby was great! He coordinated with our officiant with ceremony music and played music during our cocktail hour from a different floor as well. Only bummer was we felt he wasn't loud enough at times (which definitely could have been a venue problem). Many people at the wedding had no idea we cut our cake or our dessert was put out! Bobby was great with the kids and passed out glow necklaces to guests. One guest asked if he could sing a song and our DJ came up to my husband and I and asked our permission first which was great because we did NOT want anyone doing karaoke! Overall, would recommend Steve Bender and Bobby - I would just double check the sound in the venue first!

Steve was great! The planning process was easy and stress free.

Steve is a great DJ! The online planning tool is easy to use and makes the process smooth and stress free. The planning tool is detailed which enables you to think through all aspects of your reception in advance. The online library is large and gives you great song ideas. Steve is a pro and very creative with song selection. He did a great job executing the music style we wanted at our reception. The monogram and accent lighting added a special touch to our venue. We highly recommend!

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

Thank you Lorin! What a great night it was and you're right, the Grand is a fabulous venue. Your Monogram and Lighting looked great and we are glad we were able to provide the look you were wanting. Congratulation to the two of you!

Thank You,
Steve Bender

One of the best DJs I've experienced at a wedding. He got the whole crowd on the dance floor right when the music came on and almost every song was well-targeted to the audience.

Joe Griffin was our premier DJ for our wedding and he was incredible! He was friendly, accommodating, and professional throughout the entire process. We didn't have to worry about a single thing as he clearly knew what he was doing and we felt so confident having him MC and DJ the night's festivities. He did exactly as we asked and kept the party flowing with minimal interruptions. Steve was wonderful to work with as well - organized, responsive, and so helpful. We would definitely recommend Joe and Steve Bender for any event.

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

Thank you so much for the kind words! Joe is one of the reasons we're one of the top rated DJ services in the Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky area. He wanted to let you know he really enjoyed your event at the Cincinnati Art Museum and I want to thank you for being a wonderful client and for the kind words.

Steve Bender and DJ Bobby Leach provided the entertainment for our daughter's wedding on 10/21/17. I have two words to describe Bobby and that is TRUE PROFESSIONAL. From the bridal party entrance to the last dance he kept the evening flowing and the dance floor hopping. We also had a photo booth which our guest enjoyed. Joe H.

We had the opportunity to work with RJ, he did a fabulous job! I couldn't ask for anything better, RJ and I spoke on the phone for a good 3o minutes a few days prior to the wedding and he made sure he did everything I asked him to do. I had a special version of the father/daughter dance that he made sure he used. I would recommend RJ!

RJ was absoltely amazing and made our day so wonderful! Not only did he keep the party going with his amazing selection of music but he also took charge of dismissing tables for dinner and always made time to ask if me or the groom needed anything to drink. He was on top of his game and gave me the peace of mind to not have to worry about anything! I would go with Steve Bender Entertainment over and over again, they were absolutely amazing!

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

RJ is a keeper! He wanted to make sure you knew how much he enjoyed playing for you and your guests. I'm proud to have him as a part of our team and we want to thank you once again for allowing us to be a part of your dream day!

We are very happy we went with Steve Bender Entertainment. We were very pleased with our dj Matt Fry. He did an excellent job running our reception. Always asking questions and making sure it was ran how I wanted it. Very reasonable price. And kept the dance floor full even with the kids. If you want to ease your mind and relax and have a great time at your reception, then Steve Bender entertainment is the way to go. I would definitely recommend them to any bride. Thank you Steve Bender and Matt Fry for making our reception super relaxing and fun.

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

Thanks Jaime! Matt is a pro and he's been tearing up the DJ world here in Cincinnati with us for over 17 years! We're proud to have him as part of our team. Thank you so much for the kind words and we wish the two of you continued happiness!

We are SO glad that we booked with Steve Bender! They are a great value, very professional & were extremely flexible with us when we had to quickly move our outdoor ceremony inside due to inclement weather. We met with RJ to discuss the type of music we wanted played at different times through the night & he hit the nail on the head. Also - our dance floor was packed all night!

We had Bobby for our ceremony and he was absolutely great to work with. He made the night an absolute blast by selecting such great songs the entire night and made sure to play many of our favorite songs that were important to us. He also put together a compilation of songs for the father-daughter dance which turned out to be so fun!

So many of our vendors have told us they have never seen a wedding dance floor stay so full for so long, especially at Drees pavilion where it sounds like many times, people spend a lot of time enjoying the beautiful view. At our wedding, I think he had most of the room on the dance floor the entire night. It really was a testament to what a great job he did. We can’t recommend him enough because he made our reception so memorable.

Steve Bender was AMAZING! We could not have hired a better DJ for our special day. Steve was extremely helpful and professional from the initial meeting all the way through the wedding and was a blast to work with. Steve did an excellent job of keeping everyone on the dance floor throughout the entire reception. We highly recommend!

Steve Bender is so wonderful to work with and he did not disappoint!. He was the DJ at my sister's wedding 2 years ago and my dad has utilized his services for another event as well! So we were thrilled to find out he was available for our wedding! He is so professional, personable and accommodating. Steve took our music styles and selections and really stuck to those choices, while also adding his expertise on what keeps the party flowing. He is a fabulous MC and does a great job moving the night along. He has an online event planner that is so easy to use and was so helpful in giving us ideas of the best songs for each part of the night. We could select specific songs, as well as select our Do Not Play list. And he we send emails with the top Mother/Son Dance songs, First Dance songs, etc that were fun to read and gave us song ideas we hadn't considered before. The whole process from beginning to end was easy and enjoyable with Steve. We couldn't have been happier and our family and friends had a wonderful time dancing the night away

Steve was perfect. He did our ceremony & our reception and we couldn't be happier. He was extremely accommodating. Very intuitive with the music and we had a hiccup during the reception & he quickly turned on some music while my officiate went searching for my vows :) He kept checking in with me throughout the evening to make sure I was happy with how things were going. We had a bit of an older crowd so dancing wasn't as happening as it probably is at other weddings but for me it was perfectly fine - nothing at all because of him. HIGHLY recommend Steve.

A Steve Bender Entertainment, INC.'s reply:

You had a great crowd! We had them on the floor, and the older couples were smiling and dancing in their seats so I'm very excited to see this review. Thank you so much for choosing us.
