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

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

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

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.
