Doug of DoubleTake Productions was OUTSTANDING!! We created our entire playlist from the announcement of the bride/groom to the last dance and he was perfect in carrying our requests out! He was also very flexible and replayed songs at our request, and had a large selection of additional songs if we needed to play a request from the crowd. The DJ and set-up was very professional and was definitely enjoyed by our family/friends. We had so many compliments on our DJ and we are so happy we chose DoubleTake Productions for our wedding reception! Thanks again Doug!!!!! -- Zachry E, Dallas, TX, 3/14/2009
Doug, and the entire Double Take Team, are wonderful! They are flexible, easy to contact and very affordable. Doug was professional, on-time and willing to work with all our special requests. We provided a list of specific songs that we wanted played for introductions, special dances and throughout the evening. He played all of them! Doug was also sure not to play any songs on our do not play list. Not all of our guests were dancers, but Doug kept the room moving and folks mingling until midnight with excellent music selections! We would definitely recommend Double Take to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding reception or any other type of special event! -- Stacy E, Mckinney, TX, 2/20/2010
I'm sorry, I can't remember our disc jockey's name, but she was absolutely wonderful! She was very professional, easy to work with and I would highly recommend her and Doubletake to friends. Susan Clark -- Susan C, Arlington, TX, 3/14/2009
We had a hellova time with her! She was everything we were looking for in a DJ and I am so thrilled I found y'all. Several people so far have asked where we found her and I was happy to pass along the referal! -- Stephanie P, Hurst, TX, 11/7/2009
Doug was absolutely fantastic. He was there for us 100%. He helped with announcements, and really made our reception a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Doubletake Productions. It was worth it and I feel blessed to have found them. Thanks Doug!!! Jessica and Steve Denton, Texas -- Jessica B, Lewisville, TX, 8/8/2008
Doug was the perfect DJ. He understood that I didn't want a typical dance setlist for my wedding, and even knew most of the music I wanted instead. Nothing top-40, mostly underground stuff. He knew how to feel the crowd, and played songs off the list that got people dancing and having a good time. DoubleTake is fairly priced, and I'd recommend to anyone. Thanks Doug! You helped make our wedding day awesome! :) -- Aaron H, Dallas, TX, 9/13/2009
Doug was awesome. He kept the crowd energized. HE was very professional and a delite to work with. I look forward to working with him again. -- Curtis O, Grapevine, TX, 3/5/2009
Mackenzie was great! She introduced herself and was just awesome at playing the music and seeing that everyone got a chance to dance to music they liked. The Twist was so much fun. Great music. I would certainly recommend your DJ service and will if anyone asks about DJ service. Thank you so much for making this such a special affair. debra gardner -- Debra G, Fort Worth, TX, 11/7/2009
This was the second year that we used Doug for my husbands birthday bash... and just like last year it was AWESOME. I apreciate Doug for his talent and professionalism, but most of all Doug is a great guy who is a lot of fun and knows how to work a great party. This year our guests even asked me if he was going to DJ again! You know someone is talented when people are asking if the same person was coming back...We had a blast, Thank you again... -- Tricia W, Mckinney, TX, 8/2/2008
This was a great event. Our high school students loved the dance and had a really great time thanks to you guys! -- Sari M, Garland, TX, 2/27/2009
Mike was great! We had a great party, and we will call again next year! Thanks so much! Kathy and Ryan -- Kathy L, Bartonville, TX, 10/24/2009
We had Doug Biter of DoubleTake Productions as DJ for our wedding reception. He was WONDERFUL. Professional, classy, a great emcee...I could go on and on. You would be lucky to have him at your event!! -- Rochelle G, Richardson, TX, 6/7/2008
My husband and I were extremely pleased with our decision to have Doubletake productions DJ our wedding reception. Doug did a wonderful job. He was so organized, professional, and he played fantastic music. He kept the dancefloor packed the whole night! I will highly recommend to anyone I know that is getting married! -- Ashley B, Addison, TX, 5/31/2008
Doug was FABULOUS!!!!! He really put us all at ease and helped to make our wedding a great experience. I would highly recommend Double Take Productions to anyone who needs DJ services. -- Brandy C, Richardson, TX, 4/13/2008
I got married on March 30th 2008. I think they did a very good job on everything. I own my own DJ business but my wife wanted me to hire outside of my business. I guess you can say that I'm VERY VERY picky when it comes to other dj's. Doubletake Production did a fantastic job. My whole wedding party had a great time!! The music sounded very good with his state of the art audio and very nice light show. If I ever had to hire outside my business again, I would not hesitate to hire them again..***I wanted to thank DoubleTake Productions for the hard work they did to show my family and friends a great time. God Bless and good luck to you!!! -- Cliff B, Arlington, TX, 3/30/2008
Doug was great. He was very accomidating of us and had no problems doing what we asked of him. He was on time and ready to go when we needed him. He was very professional and played everything we wanted to hear. I would definately recommend him to friends/family and I would call him again if I had any other events I may need him for. -- Latoya T, Plano, TX, 4/12/2008
When my daughter said the party was the very best she had ever had as well as ever been too, that pretty much summed up the evening. -- Sherri Y, Plano, TX, 2/9/2008
Doug did an amazing job and was even able to accommodate our guitarist with equipment at the last minute. Our families commented on how smooth everything went and what a great job DoubleTake Productions did. It was the best night of our lives and Doug helped make it special! -- Amanda W, , TX, 1/27/2008
Our DJ was absolutely wonderful... he did a great job of keeping us on our schedule, and announcing everything for the wedding/reception so that nobody missed anything that was going on. We have received numerous calls since we returned stating what a great event it was... I will definitely use them for any event that I may have in the future, as well as recommend them to all of our friends. -- Delinda H, Highland Village, TX, 4/12/2008
Doug was very professional. He met with us prior to the reception and we gave him our preferences on times and songs. He took notes and made sure everything went as planned. He really knows his stuff. We had music and then karaoke - it was perfect! Everyone loved it. We were very happy with our choice. Guests are saying it's the most fun they've ever had at a wedding! -- Betsy R, Dallas, TX, 7/14/2007
Doug & the DoubleTake crew were fantasic. They had all my special songs request and were a joy to work with. McKenzie was my DJ and she did a fantasic job getting eveyone to party. She kept the dance floor busy all night. Thanks DoubleTake! -- Anna P, Irving, TX, 3/15/2008
The company's owner and people were very easy and accommodating to work with. -- Connie M, Kingston, OK, 12/31/2007
McKenzie was absolutely terrific. It was mentioned by my stylist that she had the best personality. She was very sweet and very entertaining. Both adults and kids loved her. We couldn't of been happier with her. Thank you Jennifer Tribolet JenniFurries Pet Spa 972-542-7373 -- Jennifer T, Mckinney, TX, 3/15/2008
I had a very good experience with Doubletake Productions. I got many compliments from everyone at my event and it seemed that everyone was very involved. They arrived early to set up and were very professional and fun throughout. Thanks! -- Andrew H, Richardson, TX, 2/8/2008
It's difficult to say what I could have found wrong with Doubletake Productions. Doubletake Production's set up and music selection gave us plenty of options. It was a blast. -- Victor B, Dallas, TX, 12/15/2007
The party was great and all went as expected it was awesome. -- Nesa G, Flower Mound, TX, 12/31/2007
The set up crew was there before the party started, they were professional and curteous... The Music & karaokee was so much fun and enertaining for our guest. No one just sat we are all up dancing and mingling... Whats amazing about this company is that they have over 40,000 songs.... Our guests are still raving about the party and looking forward to it again next year. Thanks Double Take. -- Lisa S, Corinth, TX, 12/22/2007

Top Five Qualities to Look For in a Wedding DJ
Your wedding DJ is responsible for most, if not all of the entertainment at your wedding reception, so itís important you hire no one but the best. No matter where you live, there are talented DJs available when you need them at a price point you can afford. On top of recommendations from your peers, an online search of reputable agencies will provide you with a host of terrific DJs to consider.
Your wedding DJ is responsible for most, if not all of the entertainment at your wedding reception, so it’s important you hire no one but the best. No matter where you live, there are talented DJs available when you need them at a price point you can afford. On top of recommendations from your peers, an online search of reputable agencies will provide you with a host of terrific DJs to consider. Pick at least two of them to interview and carefully consider each of these five qualities to help you find the best fit for your wedding:
1. Personality – Within a few short minutes, you should be able to gage whether or not the DJ has a personality you can work well with. Are they affable? Upbeat? Witty? Humorous? Do they sustain good eye contact and speak clearly? Do they make you feel at ease? Do they seem genuinely interested in your wedding reception and eager to learn as much about you and your guests as possible? If they make you uncomfortable in any way during the interview, chances are they will do the same for your guests, so don’t be afraid to follow your instincts on this one.
2. Knowledge – You’ll know right away that a DJ is knowledgeable when they can quickly name the title and artist of that hit song that you only know a few words to. In addition, they should be able to tell you in depth about all of their equipment from the wattage of their speakers to why they chose to work with one brand of mp3 player over another, or how a certain program on their laptop is perfect for beat matching and syncing, etc.
3. Reliability – All good DJs will provide you with a list of past clients upon your request. After you’ve obtained a list, call a few of them and ask about the DJs reliability. Were they punctual? Did they come prepared with all the right equipment and back up equipment in case of emergencies? Did they follow through on all of their promises and play all of their client’s requests?
4. Adaptability – You want a DJ that will listen to your needs, make note of all of your requests, and offer up ideas of their own that they feel will enhance the overall entertainment value. Contacting past clients and asking them if the DJ was able to adapt quickly to the crowd and the energy in the room will help you analyze this quality further.
5. Special Skills – Do a large number of your guests speak a language other than English? If so, hiring a bilingual DJ might be a wise decision. Will you want a colorful light show to heighten the overall visual experience? There are DJs available who can provide LED lighting systems, mirror balls, etc., upon request. Are there any ‘out of the ordinary’ activities you require your DJ to emcee?
Keeping these qualities in mind during the wedding coordinating process will ensure you hire the best wedding disc jockey available!
Hiring a professional DJ can make all the difference when it comes to the success of your event. Whether youíre planning your wedding, coordinating a school or corporate event, or just throwing a good old-fashioned party, you want to hire a DJ that will provide you with the best entertainment value to fit your needs.
Wedding DJ pricing. So, how much does a wedding DJ cost? This depends on how comfortable you are with the lighting, experience, equipment, music, and fun options. You should try unique things because your wedding is far from ordinary. This does not mean you need to break the bank with wedding DJ prices, but see what options are really worth the cost.
