Slack Wedding

From start to finish Dalen was a dream! He gave us a great website where we could go in and request songs that were ‘must play’, ‘try to play’ and ‘don’t play’ for our reception, songs to walk down the aisle to, songs to play during the dinner and cocktail hour basically we could request the music for our entire event – but we left a lot of space for him to feel the crowd and have fun with it, but its good to have the option for couples to have a list of required songs. We had some funny little things too – like my walk out song for the ceremony was the Jurassic Park theme and Dalen helped me pick the right version, I sent him music for my father daughter dance (a Ukrainian dance piece).
I wasn’t around to be there when he was setting up, but as the ceremony started everything went off without a hitch! I was able to talk with him and Tara – they were so fun and so approachable! They read the crowd perfectly – the dance floor was packed the entire time.
Him and Tara were a dream to work with! I got so many complements from my guests about the music – thank you Dalen and Tara for taking a lot of the stress out of the madness a wedding can cause! I’m so happy I got to spend time talking with you 🙂

Boon Wedding

Dalen Quigley and Torrie from Wailin Dalen Entertainment were amazing! Torrie was the DJ for the night and he accommodated to EVERY little detail I gave (I gave alot of details) – he also looked like he was loving it, and the crowd only had praises. If you’re looking for a 90s music type of wedding, Torrie will deliver!

Mckenzie Wedding

Can’t say enough how amazing Wailin Dalen Entertainment was at our wedding!! Do to a venue cancellation we had to change plans, more than once and Dalen was so easy going and accommodating. He is easy to communicate with and quick to respond to emails. Our DJ was Ashlyn and she was amazing!! Quick to respond to emails, showed up/set up early so she was ready to go on time. She was professional, had everyone on the dance floor, and is just a really kind person! I had some not so great vendors at my wedding but would recommend this company 100 times over!!

Bui Wedding

Dan was a great addition to our reception. He made sure to arrive early to set up and kept the dance floor going until the very end. Everything related to dancing went off without a hitch and it was one of the highlights of our day. We loved that he was interacting with the guests and he seemed like an all-around great guy. We also loved working with Dalen, whose prompt responses and friendly demeanor made it easy for us to go with Wailin’ Dalen out of all the other companies we’ve contacted for quotes.

Ward Wedding

I contacted Wailin Dalen Entertainment over the Facebook wedding swap and they were so easy going and professional. They were able to work with my budget and book me 3 weeks before my wedding because I was about to pull my hair out trying to do a Playlist. The stress was taken away and Dan our DJ did an amazing job and even went off the clock to keep the party going! Not only that but they were able to travel to Galiano island where I got married and brought all the equipment and worked in sync with my venue. Excellent service!

Potter Wedding

Hey Dalen just wanted to reach out and thank you again for the amazing job you did with our wedding. The dance floor was busy from the first song to the last and you managed to work in all the bizarre requests made by guests with interesting music tastes. I loved the ‘do not play’ list! Also, thank you for being more than just the DJ at the wedding. You seemed to be everywhere we needed you, even helping guests with drinks on occasion. You put a lot of work into the big day and it was very much appreciated. The equipment was high quality, the sound was loud and clear and your professionalism was evident. We are very glad we chose you for our DJ. We would recommend you to anyone who wanted a top notch, highly personable and committed DJ at their event.
All the best,

What a great guy. Thank you both so much. If I ever need a d.j. in the future you guys will be it! Please thank him again for me!

Ledcor Christmas Party

To whomever may be so lucky to work with Dalen Entertainment,

Ledcor had to book a DJ the week after New Years on short notice. It was very difficult to find someone who was available, or available to travel to Kelowna ski resort for an event. Dalen was incredibly at providing his service within our budget at the drop of a hat. Is DJ not only picked music suitable to the audience in the room (a blend of classics and new, and remixed together), he brought his own wireless mic equipment and really made the night shine!My staff commented on how it was one of the best events they’d attended.Will we use them again… in a word – Absolutely! Pleasure to do business with.

Atkinson Wedding

Everyone was loving the music. Dj was awesome and was totally into it. Everyone was loving it! Great music selection and timing. The music was mixed super well. Never a dull or awkward moment on the dance floor. I’ve never seen so many people on a dance floor at a wedding!

Gant Wedding

Dalen was amazing to work with! He did such a great job throughout
our whole day – from the ceremony to the reception dinner to the dancing smile emoticon
His timing was perfect and he kept the dance floor going right until the very end
of the night! The Bose speaker system may look smaller than some of the
more traditional equipment you see at weddings, but it’s really all you need!
He was also so great throughout the whole planning process and always had my messages answered the same day (typically within the hour), which did wonders for a busy bride. I would hire Dalen again in a heartbeat, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ!”

Heal Wedding

My husband and I had Dalen Quigley DJ our wedding ceremony. From our first time that we contacted, to our first meeting, right to the day of our wedding, he has been a pleasure to work with. He is very quick to respond, professional, organized and his pricing is very reasonable. We told him exactly what we were looking for and he delivered just that and much more. Our guests were so impressed with the music that he played. Even the grandparents couldn’t wait to get on the dance floor. Their feet were tapping while having dinner. We are very happy with our decision to have Dalen Quigley being our DJ. We highly recommend Dalen Quigley and we know that you wont be disappointed! Thanks for making our Wedding day a day that we will never forget!

Brooke was such a pleasure to work with at our wedding Aug 15, 2015….she is completely professional but with her fabulous attitude she made the wedding a blast. Had all the right songs at the right times and if she thought it needed tweeking made sure she touched base with me. She went above and beyond my expectations and I would recommend her in a second. Thank you, thank you, thank you sooo much for everything Brooke and Dalen.

Lidster Wedding

“Looking back on our big day, one of the highlights was our music! Trevor was beyond awesome throughout the entire evening! He played everything we wanted him to and kept the dance floor busy all night! He read the crowd incredibly well and played music that kept everyone happy! I was amazed at how many people were still up dancing at the end of the night asking if it was really time to pack up (we had to be out of the venue at a certain time)!! He also found me at the end of the night to congratulate us on our wedding- very sweet!
We want to thank Wailin Dalen (both Dalen and Trevor) for being so kind and patient with us during our planning process! We truly appreciate everything you did and will certainly recommend you to everyone we know!
Thank you.

Rose Wedding

I highly recommend Wailin’ Dalen Entertainment! Dalen was a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to the wedding and the online event planning tool was so helpful — especially the lists of most popular requested songs, etc. At our wedding, DJ was beyond fantastic — he was punctual, completely organized and rolled with it when we changed our timing slightly. He played all our requests, and kept the dance floor going all night!

Martin Wedding

Dear Dalen (Wailin Dalen DJ)

On March 21, 2015 I married my best friend. Though I am sure you know that for the months prior there can be A LOT of stress planning a wedding. When we first asked you to be our DJ we as most people expected someone to show up, play some music and leave. You were absolutely amazing!!! Not only in the months before my wedding were you so helpful, finding me wedding items, always there if needed…you not only played INCREDIBLE music (the guests reviews are fantastic!!) you went beyond that and stayed to help clean up to make sure the venue was left in one piece. I don’t even know where to begin to thank you, all I can say is you will always be remembered by Dale and I for making our day a dream come true.

Anyone who needs a DJ, look no further, Wailin Dalen exceeded our expectations by 500% and you will not be disappointed.

Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts

Perry Wedding

Dalen was our DJ for our wedding in June at the Kirkland House and honestly it was the most amazing night! Dalen was very professional and handled any requests we had. We had the option to send in our full line up of music right from the ceremony to the last song of the night. He had the dance floor packed all night long and our guests had the most amazing time. He truly did an incredible job! I wish I had another wedding to hire him for.

Davis Wedding

We couldn’t have been happier with the professionalism and quality of Dalen Quigley. We hired him for our wedding and the quality of sound and mixing of music genres was top-notch. He supplied every song we requested and used his creativity to add more songs that we hadn’t even thought of. He was easily accessable, even on the day of our wedding when timing chaged. Dalen was a great spirit to work with and his set up and take down time was fast and flawless. Most of our guests had rave reviews of Dalen’s services and many have decided to use him in the future. Not once have I gone the evening without saying “skip this song” until we hired him. You can’t go wrong and I would recommend him to everyone I know.

La Vista Events and Wedding Planner

I attended a wedding as a guest where Dalen was the DJ, and I distinctly remember his passion shining through. As a wedding planner, this is a trait I value very much in the vendors I work with. It was refreshing to see Dalen’s genuine excitement for the couple, as well as his professionalism and of course his DJ abilities! He had a modern twist on the ceremony songs which was memorable, and he kept the dance floor packed all night long. Most important, Dalen’s contagious smile never left his face and it was obvious that he loved his job. I look forward to working with Dalen and would recommend him to my futureclients!
