PAST CLIENT REVIEWS:
Hi Rick! What an awesome evening! You did a fantastic job! I sure sensed the crowd was quite pleased and I received wonderful feedback! Your services are certainly recommendable! Such great energy from the crowd that you created from playing such great music, creating great party atmosphere and being the Emcee . I was away alot visiting with relatives and friends that I never get to see anymore since our move to Tennessee----- my only regret is that i didn't dance MORE! I think I only got one dance with my hubby! --My OWN fault! Too busy being social .....so many folks from out of town, that i never see....so hard to get around to everyone.... We all had such a fabulous time!! and folks told us we sure knew how to throw a party! Well---we had GREAT entertainment! (o;
What a great team in place with you and Kara and my friend martha at the decorating and our family band (sorry THAT was so much hassle though!) but anyway----it all worked out and I was thrilled and now I'm sad it's all over already...i want to relive it that day all again to just soak it in even more! ha! .........
Pics are Awesome! I've already sent them around to many relatives and friends... Good time had by all and THANK YOU SO MUCH again!

Rick was great. He played songs that got the crowd dancing. He is very tech savvy and his screen with the pictures and text messages were a hit. The speakers were at the perfect sound level and very clear. He was very responsive to requests. Overall, he made the wedding a very enjoyable experience for all and we give him our highest recommendation.

Rick Ryan made our daughter's reception a hit! Everyone had a great time dancing to the music and karaoke. He did everything we asked and even more. I wasn't sure what to expect but he provided it all including pictures and lighting. I would definitely recommend him to anyone and we will use him again.
Nikki (mother of the bride) - Athens, AL
Because of my schedule and where I live, Rick and I corresponded and planned my wedding reception entirely through e-mail. Even though I never met him or spoke to him in person before the actual wedding day, his services met our high expectations for a long night of fun and great music! Rick played every song that I or my guests requested, including my long list of songs that I had given him beforehand and songs requested by everyone the night-of. This was what my guests and I enjoyed most--hearing every single song that we wanted to hear! The music had EVERYONE up dancing, singing along, singing karaoke, and just having a great time!
I told Rick beforehand that we wanted more of a party atmosphere, not formal, for our wedding reception, and that's exactly what we got. Our reception was outdoors on the bank of the Tennessee River, and the music sounded great from anywhere that we went in the area--even all the way out on the boat patio.
So to sum it up, everyone really enjoyed having Rick DJ at our reception! (That includes guests my age-early 20s- to my grandparents, and every age inbetween!) People were asking how I found him, and many said that it was one of the most fun wedding receptions that they had ever been to! My husband and I had so much fun at the reception, and we would definitely hire Rick for another event!

I just wanted to thank you for a great job you did Saturday night! I bet I was the most anxious mother ever, but within an hour you had me forgetting all about my worries about this or that and just having fun. Your experience in dealing with different people and personalities shows and that's why every gig you do is so memorable. Everyone talked about it afterwards how you knew just how to read the crowd and give them what they wanted to get them up and dancing and enjoying the evening—so much so that even when you left for the night, I had to kick out the excess partiers because the room was shutting down! We have memories we will never forget and you made it possible. Thank you again—you are the GREATEST!!

"Rick Ryan was great at my wedding! The music was on point during the ceremony and he kept family and friends on the dance floor all night! I had an outside wedding and was worried about sound and lights, but the sound was fantastic and the lighting was perfect. It got alittle chilly at the end of the night and Rick stay professional and kept on going. I will definetly book Rick again for any events where I need a professional and cool DJ again! Thanks Rick for a great time and helping my wedding be a success!"

"Rick Ryan went above and beyond all my expectations! The lights, candid photos, texting & great music line-up made my reception a blast and me worry free."
Ashley Schuelke, Memphis, TN
"It was a pleasure having Rick as our DJ. He provides the whole package: all the music we could ever want including our special requests; great lighting to set the mood; and all the pictures taken and displayed on the big screen throughout the night made it a an evening to remember! Very professional, arriving on time and setting everything up left no hassles for the Bride and Groom. We couldn't ask for anything more. Thank You Rick Ryan, your services will be recommended to all our friends."

Birthday Party (Adults) in Hendersonville, TN on 01/24/2009
"Rick was Great! He was very friendly and easy to work with. I even threw in a last minute song request that wasn't on his playlist and he got it for me. The lighting and bubbles were a big hit. The kids loved him. I would highly recommend him especially for a family friendly party. There were no surprises. Rick Ryan was exactly what you expect him to be. Down to earth, professional and a talented musician. With his reasonable rates and talent I can't imagine finding a better deal anywhere. I would definitely hire him again.
Thanks Rick for making my husbands 40th birthday a big hit."

"Rick played for my husband's 60th Birthday party last weekend. We all had a great time and Rick was a big part of it!
He worked with me weeks before the party making a Memory Video to share with our family and friends.
I have had many, many compliments on the party and Rick.
Thanks again for making my husband's night extra special!

Private Party in Montgomery, AL on 08/18/2007
"Rick Ryan played at our engagement party and we had a wonderful time with him. Lots of our guests enjoyed singing on his karaoke machine. Rick was more than accommodating and went to great lengths to handle special requests. I highly recommend Rick for any event. "

Birthday Party (Adults) in Chattanooga, TN on 05/05/2007
"I cannot speak highly enough of Rick Ryan. He recently performed at my dad's surprise 60th bday party and was an absolute blast. He is a fantastic performer, has tons of energy, and is just a genuinely great guy to deal with. He also made my dad's day by learning one of his favorite songs, with just a couple of days notice, and performing it at the party. And in addition to himself performing, he also has a great karaoke system that allows for people to come up onstage and perform with him. Tons of fun!!!!!"

Wedding in Gallatin, TN on 02/10/2007
"Rick was great to deal with for my wedding. We exchanged a few emails ahead of time telling him what type of music I would like and a general idea of the ceremony. Rick and his wife on piano did and EXCELLENT job with the ceremony music as well as the reception. He even played the song that we requested as our first dance live which was a great surprise for my husband and I. We couldn't have been happier with how the music turned out. Rick took a great deal of stress of my plate during the wedding planning. I would recommend him and his wife. A+++++++ Thank you again!"
