“Robert did an absolutely amazing job as DJ for our wedding reception/dance! He was a great help during the planning phase and kept it very stress-free for us. He was open to hearing our ideas and he also presented us with some other great ideas for games etc. that we hadn’t thought of to keep guests entertained throughout the reception and dance. Robert interacted very well with our wedding party and guests and helped make our evening fun and carefree! We had MANY compliments from our guests throughout the evening on the phenomenal job he did as DJ!”

“RNB Weddings was FANTASTIC! They did both my videography as well as DJ. The videos were so perfect and exceeded any expectations I had for a wedding video. He made the videos personal with family stories, messages from the bride and grooms, etc. Our videos were delivered to us in a special customized wood box with 3 copies and a flash drive, great for sharing with friends and family! His DJ services were also outstanding, he had flat screen TV’s to show our videos as well as kept the night on time and moving well. He was well prepared and knew exactly what he was doing! Our dance floor was NEVER empty! I HIGHLY recommend RNB Weddings by Robert Benda!” – Morgan

“Robert was an amazing DJ! He was very receptive to our likes and dislikes. It was as if once we told him our music preferences he could read our minds to what our favorite songs were. He was easy going at the reception and wanted to make it all about us and what we wanted. Even coming down to the last second to change the next song to match the grooms preference!! I may be a bit biased but I think I had the best wedding dance I have ever been to however when all of my guests also told me this I think it must be true. I accredit it to the amazing DJ services he provided as he played ALL of my favorite songs! I recommend him to anyone and everyone that asks!!” from Julie, via Weddingwire

Danielle Anderst & Lee Kiedrowski“If you are looking for an award-winning, high quality DJ, with plenty of experience, who will go the extra mile, smooth out the bumps every bride and groom experiences at their reception, and comes at a very reasonable price… Look no further. Robert was up-to-date with novel wedding reception entertainment and possessed the talent and equipment to make these fresh ideas a reality. Together, we created a “Welcome video” for our guests that played prior to the wedding party’s entrance into the reception. It was a simple 5-minute video with some facts about my groom and me, predictions of family members’ known dance moves, and warnings for unexpected singing from some family members. Also, I hired Robert in secret to record a song I sang to my husband-to-be at the groom’s dinner. He captured the audio and video but most importantly, the look on my future-husband’s face when I completely surprised him with the song ☺ The accommodations Robert provided were not limited to the guests who made the trip. The family members and friends who could not attend the wedding were able to watch the ceremony and reception speeches online because Robert was able to Live-Stream from our location. Of all the unique ideas Robert provided and “extra miles” he traveled, the biggest reward from hiring Robert was his welcoming and calming personality. Robert made us feel in control of every aspect of our reception, while also feeling confident in his skill-set to guide us with the short-notice changes that happen with every wedding. We could not have been happier with any other DJ. Thank you Robert!! Danielle & Lee Kiedrowski”

“I just had to write you a quick email telling you how much your awesome djing and your professional service meant to us! You kept us on track and we got to do all the things we had hoped for, for our wedding dance! I’ve been to a few weddings this year and I have to say nothing compared to you. From not being able to understand what the wedding party was saying during speeches cause of poor sound, to slideshow mishaps that made me sad for the couple. You made sure all that and the music was perfect. I know we made the right choice and just wanted to say thanks again!!!

“The DJ made the reception a great party! The service is worth the price, especially if your family doesn’t want to speak. Great music mixes and worry free for the couple.” from Jeannie, posted on TheKnot.com

“Hands down — best investment for our reception! Here’s what we started asking when we shopped for our DJ:

  • Will we know in advance who will be working our wedding? (Many places take your reservation and you get the DJ that’s available that night.)
  • How much experience does your DJ have working weddings?How long will they play?
  • Will they be setup before your guests arrive?
  • Will they serve as a master of ceremonies or simply play music?
Robert Benda is the most professional DJ I have ever seen work a wedding — and he LITERALLY took care of everything at the reception, leaving my wife and I at ease the entire night.  If you book Robert Benda, you hire him for the entire event. When he’s there, he’s working. And he’s quick to tell you that.  Robert met with us at length before the event and went through the entire reception. Songs that are must plays. Songs you do not want played, no matter how many times they are requested. And so on…

He was there early and recommended that he be able to dismiss tables to get food. This gave him a chance to meet the guests and get to know their tastes in music and entertainment.   He was the M.C. for the entire evening and prevented any awkward “dead spots” during the meal, when the room was flipped, or during the dance. He was even there to help anyone in the wedding party if they needed help with hair, dress, shoes, etc.

My favorite part: he gave us an exit plan so my wife and I could escape during a send off song and then played one more song for our guests while we were driving away. Sure, you can spend less money on a DJ. But you will get what you pay for, and in our experience, this was the best investment we could have made for our reception. Our night couldn’t have gone smoother!  (Note: our maid of honor lives 300 miles away and asked if he would travel that far to DJ her wedding. That spoke volumes to Robert’s commitment to his clients. Thanks for your work, Robert!)” – From Corey, posted on TheKnot.com

“We worked with Robert for our reception, and he is an AMAZING DJ!! He collaborated with us for quite some time before the wedding, and we were able to build a great relationship with him.

Robert is extremely professional and detail oriented. He was able to make adjustments to his plans, and think on his feet to make changes on the fly in order to make the reception go incredibly smoothly and always kept our guests entertained. He was an excellent MC for the reception, and we received multiple compliments on the event, and the quality of the entertainment. Robert never let the music stop during the dance, and took requests from guests all night long. The dance floor was packed the entire night, and it was hands down the best reception we have ever seen.

Throughout the process Robert was helpful, and offered suggestions and direction to our planning process. He really felt like a part of the wedding party by the end of it all and we would highly recommend him to anyone planning a reception or event!” – Jenna & Zac, via Weddingwire.com

The dance was an absolute BLAST and many guests have said it was their favorite they’ve been to! There was a great variety of songs and Robert is great at knowing what will keep people coming to the dance floor.

From WeddingWire: “I hired RNB for my wedding 12/29/12. Robert also DJ’d for my sisters wedding a few years ago, and I liked the way he worked and his services so I decided to hire him. He was great to work with and gave insight and ideas that I would have never came up with on my own. I had my wedding and reception in the same venue, and he assisted in both! They now have many more services then they did a few years ago, everyone loved the photo booth, especially the video they create from the photos. The photobooth pictures also had a very quick turnaround in me getting the photos. I used their uplighting and it made a beautiful accent to my simple decor, very elegant, and very affordable! They offer many other services such as video, photography, kind of a one stop shop for many different details that really makes things simple. Even with a few of the “extras” I paid less then a friend did for her reception on another local DJ. Robert knows how to keep things rolling, without rushing or pushing. RNB really helped make my wedding/reception go smoothly, and super fun! I would recommend RNB to anyone looking to hire a DJ for any event!” -Emily Kliniske

“Robert Benda did an amazing job at my husband and I’s wedding reception in Grand Forks North Dakota at the Woodland Lodge in Turtle River State park. He played a variety of music from many different eras and keep the mood, lighting, and party running smoothly. He incorporated 2 songs for the father daughter dance which was important to me! I loved the question games he played on how well the bride and groom know each other and the competition he made for giving the garder away. He is definitly worth the price and I would recomend him to anyone in his traveling area. Thanks Again Robert!”
