We would like to thank you for all your work at our wedding. We have received nothing but compliments about the day and reception, you played a huge part in that. We loved that you were able to source all the songs we wanted for the ceremony and cocktail hour and later on in the night were able to read the crowd and adapt the music to who was out there dancing. We had a perfect day and would like to formally thank you for you contribution to that. We will definitely be recommending you to others.

Jono was amazing! Very professional and great to deal with. During the wedding process it can be easy to feel stressed but Jono would always answer my emails in a timely and lovely manner, always putting my mind to ease and helping with suggestions and guidance along the way. He made things stress free.

On the night he was great. He set up so quietly that I did not even notice. I gave him a few song suggestions and told him a rough idea of what I wanted – a mix of old school and also new stuff. He played great music and a perfect mix of these. Heaps of people were up and dancing – all ages! it was so much fun!

Great value for money and I will not hesitate to recommend Jono to anyone looking for a top class DJ. Thanks again for everything!

We hired Jono to be the DJ for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier. Not being too musically versed ourselves, we didn’t have much to give Jono in guiding the set list for the night. Jono did an outstanding job at selecting a good variety of music to suit the guests and was very accommodating to any requests. He arrived and set up at the venue with plenty of time and was on the ball throughout the night. Highly recommended to all.

Just a quick note to let you know how appreciative we were of your DJ (Dan) at our wedding last Sat Feb 7 at Mantells on the Water – and how impressed we have been with your whole outfit, right throughout the booking process.

You have been easy to communicate throughout, consistently efficient at replying to emails, and made the entire process a pleasure. Dan chose a perfect mix of music, featured all our top picks, and accommodated guest requests with ease and aplomb. The lighting and sound was top-quality and multiple guests remarked that it was the best wedding dance-floor atmosphere they’d come across.

Enormously appreciative of your professionalism and execution, and thank you very much on behalf of both of us

Kate Duggan

Fiona Pettigrew

Thank you so much for everything that you did for us last Saturday on our big day. Elizabeth and I massively appreciated how organised things were, and how professionally everything was carried out, and would have absolutely no hesitation in using your services again, and recommending you to friends for future events.

Simon & Elizabeth Lewis

I have to write and thank you so much for making this Wedding such a superb party. Your expertise at getting the music just right was amazing – the dance floor was always full. This was just the finale to your job – you have been a pleasure to deal with, very professional and always available to answer our calls and emails. Thank you Jono, we will certainly recommend you to others and happy to reassure any of your future clients of your ability.

Hi Jono, Thank you for the lovely card we received today. Thanks so much for the awesome DJing at our wedding reception, we had an amazing night and you kept the tunes coming.

Laura Baddeley

Thank you for being apart of our special day and for making everything run so smoothly. You were very easy to deal with and we felt comfortable leaving everything up to you on the night. Music makes such a difference to an experience and I am 100% certain everyone had a great night and spent most of their time on the dance floor! Thanks again for everything and we will get through some photos as soon as we can!

Derek & Kim MacQuarrie

The Ridler is a fantastic DJ, we have used him on several occasions as well as our Wedding day. He interacted well with the guests and accommodated their song requests. We have only received compliments on the entire event and I felt that Jono was a very large part of that success. The Ridler always has everyone up dancing all night and changes the music to suit the crowd.

Kylie Raffaelli

Thank you so much Jono, you were absolutely fantastic as the DJ and MC at our wedding! We’ve had so many guests commenting on the awesome music and how funny you were as MC. You took care of the whole wedding for us, from the ceremony through the reception and played the perfect music to keep everyone up and dancing all night long!

Jenna & Liam Newey

We would like to thank you for your contribution in making our wedding a huge success. You did a wonderful job of selecting the right music for the occasion and read our guests like a pro. Everyone had a ball! We would especially like to thank you for going the extra mile in obtaining a copy of our first dance song. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends! Thanks again from a very happy Cheri and Daniel Main

Cheri & Daniel Main

Big thank you to Jono for being our DJ last weekend at our Wedding. He did a fantastic job. Music was a good mixture and he also did our lighting which included a custom light effect that projected our names on to the wall (which was better than what we imagined). We’ll definitely recommend!

Your Wedding Day

Ridler DJ can provide your special music on a compact and portable sound set up for your Wedding Ceremony as you walk down the aisle and for during the register signing. We can follow that up with a perfect mixture of background and cocktail music for post-Ceremony, as well as canapes and during dinner. Then we’ve got your First Dance and the party with a professional and tidy set up which requires minimal space and all the music taken care of so you can relax and celebrate with your friends and family. We can work with you on the best option to suit your needs and suit the venue. Bookings can be made for the Whole Day or just the Reception.

We’ll play music that you and your guests know and we’ll cater for everyone at the party…from the parents to your grandparents and friends by playing a mix of songs to suit all tastes. We’re also happy to take requests on the day too!

You’ll also receive a web link to submit any songs you’d like played on the night, any you don’t wish to be played and a chance to specify any particular songs.
Before the day, we’ll get together to go over the music, the plan for the day, the timeline, specific needs etc.
