Fred and his wife, Nancy, were very accommodating and helpful in guiding me toward the final selection and format of these songs. Fred is very knowledgeable regarding the history of rock & roll, and can share many interesting facts of hit tunes and lessen known oldies. I would not hesitate to recommend Fred and would love to work with him again.

Finally a full-worded Thank You! Guess I was waiting 'till Christmas this year, but I hadn't forgotten! My Christmas newsletter this year stated that " Jane worked on party preparations for her birthday celebration of a 50's DJ Dance party" I Worded it in my paragraph : "A highlight was Jane's 50th Birthday party: wearing saddle shoes & dancing to 50's music by a DJ, joyfully shared with friends & family!!!" I really did appreciate your patience in my date selection and working with me. I also enjoyed you relating to my guests by asking trivia questions and making the 50's theme fun in "word" and "deed"= dancing. It was nice for your wife, Nancy, to be involved and for her help. Thanks again for all do and I'm so pleased that I had you DJ for my "Oldies but Goodies" Birthday party celebration! I give you permission to use my comments of appreciation for your web site.
God Bless you & Merry Christmas, Mrs. Jane Jassmond

I loved the trivia!” “The music was perfect for dinner and dancing.” “Our class is celebrating our 50th next year, and we want you for our reunion too.” “How did you get all that information about the top records and what was going on in the world when we were still in school? It really brought back a lot of fond memories.” “We appreciated your assistance in planning the evening’s events and being flexible as the night progressed.” “We had a terrific time. Thank you so very much!”
Thank you so much, EVERYBODY had a great time! You are so accommodating and had some great ideas about planning the party, thank you!
Fred did a wonderful job doing the MC/Music/Trivia at our home. All of our guests enjoyed the show. He was professional , fun and entertaining. Having him at our party made it easy for us to enjoy time with our guests. We happily recommend Fred and Those Oldies but Goodies to anyone considering hiring him. Thank you Fred! Lisa and George Tuccelli
“Fred creates such a fun and lively event. All my friends had a great time listening to the Oldies, dancing to the slow and romantic songs, and twisting and strolling. It brought back lots of great memories. As one of my friends said, ‘Just listening to this music puts me in a good mood.’ I received a lot of compliments, and we had a special time too. Once the party started, it was all in Fred’s hands. We had very little to do except dance, eat, and socialize with our guests."

What to Watch Out for When Hiring a Wedding Disc Jockey
Hiring a DJ is safe and easy with these tips from 800DJ!
It’s the hope of every couple getting married that their guests feel welcome, relaxed and entertained throughout their big day, which is why great entertainment is crucial to the success of any wedding reception. One of the best and most financially responsible decisions a wedding coordinator can make is to hire a professional wedding DJ who can do so much more than simply provide musical entertainment during the reception. But how can a coordinator be sure they’ve found the very best? Here are a few things to watch out for when hiring a wedding disc jockey.
The first thing to watch out for is the source from which the DJ was found. For example, be wary of any DJ whom you found on Craigslist or a similar classified advertisement site. Anyone can advertise on these sites without having their skills and work experience verified and accredited. It’s much wiser to seek out talent from a reputable agency with many years of experience promoting wedding DJs because they are held accountable for the skills and reliability of every DJ they promote. With their reputation on the line, they will do everything they can to ensure they are only working with the highest quality and most professional disc jockeys around.
After you’ve consulted a reputable agency and found a few DJs in your area that seem promising, the second thing to watch out for is the DJ’s history. You’re looking for a DJ with the happiest clients and longest history of performing at weddings like yours, so it’s in your best interest to book a face-to-face meeting with a few prospects as soon as possible. During those meetings, you can ask for a list of past clients’ contact information. Be wary of any DJ who hesitates to provide you with a list upon request. Call a few past clients and conduct further research of the DJ’s website, Facebook or other online profile pages. If it’s difficult to find positive reviews or if multiple previous clients provide you with negative feedback – it’s time to look elsewhere.
The third major thing to watch out for are hidden fees for services you did not agree to. When you’ve found a great DJ who can provide all of the services you are looking for, it’s important to get a quote from the DJ that itemizes each and every one of those services, taking into account the total size of your event space. These services can range from adding uplighting, to narrating a photo or video presentation, to providing a photo booth, etc. Once the final contract has been drawn up and is ready to sign by both parties, read through it carefully and be certain everything you need is listed and you are not being charged for anything you did not request.
Watch out for these simple things and you’re sure to hire no one but the very best wedding disc jockey available.
