When planning any function, especially a wedding, few couples truly understand the enormous impact that choosing a wedding DJ will have on their wedding night.
Underestimating the significance of the DJ at your wedding reception is like underestimating the importance of the pilot on a trip across the ocean. The DJ you choose for your wedding reception will, absolutely, make or break your wedding night. The problem, though, is that most couples have no experience whatsoever in hiring a professional DJ. They don’t have the experience to know what questions to ask or even what responsibilities a professional DJ should have. Without this knowledge, it’s hard to know what the differences are between a good wedding DJ and a bad one.
For this reason, see many of the several dozen Testimonials here below to help you do your very important due diligence.

Grant helped us make our special day extra special. He was very flexible and open to our suggestions and music choices. He played music fitting for each part of the day and made sure the dance floor was full throughout the reception. If you want a great professional, Grant won’t disappoint!

We can’t thank Grant enough for helping make our dream wedding even more magical than we expected! His professionalism was commendable. He is a great guy to work with and he carried the day’s tunes on point. Job well done!
on December 2, 2017
Not only is Grant an excellent DJ, he takes organising seriously. His admin, MC and organisation skills are excellent. The service is professional and he really makes you feel important. He just thinks of things that you don’t. He is also very social, so he fits in really well with the crowd and plays music to suit everyone’s need. Grant also does most of our corporate functions and I’ve never been let down!
on October 21, 2017
Reading all the reviews about Grant before typing my/our own and wow, more true words could not be said about this guy. Thank you for making our day (music wise) so awesome, from beginning to end. We gave Grant a few ideas of the music we liked and he simply built on that and took it to the next level. We rocked that dance floor so hard I thought the concrete foundations were going to give! Thanks again Grant, you are a legend!

Thank you so much! We had such a wonderful day and of course the music made it memorable. So many people said it was a great mix and that they all enjoyed it.
Thank so much for indulging various friend’s requests for Linkin Park, not the normal wedding music but people seemed to love it. You handled the various changes in venue and a few changes in the the program so well and made sure things ran smoothly. It was great!
Thanks again for all your help and for making our day so special.

I just want to thank you most whole heartedly for doing such a fantastic job of beautiful music at my 60th birthday party on 24 June. As you saw, I literally did not stop dancing the whole night and was stiff for three days thereafter! I have had so many positive comments about the music: you really made the party the success that it was! I could not believe how the music just kept on coming and I do not remember any song being played more than once! We had such good music in those days!
Thank you once again for your contribution to my evening which made it such a success!
on April 8, 2017
Drew and I cannot thank you enough for being literally the best value add ever to a dream come a true day for us. I don’t think that dance floor was empty once. People loved your music and thank you so much for working closely with Andrew to keep the crowd under control and keep the evening running to schedule (this particularly spoke to my heart). The feedback from our mates has Been in summery: ‘who is this DJ, he’s the best’. So thank you so so so much!!
Will definitely do a formal review for you on google. I saw you filming the end sit down. Please feel free to use it or any other photos or footage you took and would like to use to promote your business.
Can’t thank you enough!

This review is long overdue. It’s been 7 weeks since our wedding and it brings the biggest smile to my face just thinking about it – Grant you played such a major role in making our day so memorable not only for us but for all of our guests. I’ve never seen all the family members and friends dance the night away like that before and they’re still talking about it. Your timing and song choice is brilliant and your personality truly completes the package. We can honestly say that any couple, event or function would be lucky to have you.
Thank you so much again:)

Dean & I just wanted to thank you again for being just plain fabulous!! We gave you minimal to no direction and you just whipped it out the bag to make it all we ever dreamed it would be…..a night to remember. Our guests all had a ball and we have been inundated with compliments.

Greetings after the BEST wedding ever and most relaxed honeymoon!!
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything, we still have people ranting and raving about the DJ, everyone saying how you kept the party going. I can bearly remember a time when I wasn’t on the dance floor and singing songs at the top of my lungs hahaha!! My voice was a little husky for a few days after, actually thought it was the start of losing my voice but luckily not.
It was awesome! So thank you so much!!! I would get married all over again just for the party!!
Good luck in the future, although I’m sure you don’t need it.
Keep well and keep the music going!
Much love from

An amazingly talented professional! The sound and mix by Grant Boonzaier for my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding at the ICC in Durban was superb. I (and many others) were so impressed with how he managed to bring the different age groups and cultures together with his wonderful music. THANK YOU so much Grant Boonzaier!

Camen and I would really like to say thank you for the work you did at our wedding by being our DJ. We were both very happy with everything you did on the day! I know I left you in the dark with the opening song which was my own fault, but at the end everything worked out great!
I will definitely recommend you to any of our friends. Camen’s sister Angelique said you were the best DJ she has ever seen “heard” and she has attended nearly 50 weddings :).
All the best.

Before we leave on honeymoon we just would like to send you our heartfelt thanks! When we met you over a year ago we knew instantly that you were the only choice as our wedding DJ – and on Saturday you proved to us that we couldn’t have made a better decision!
You were an absolute rockstar! So professional, perfectly timed tunes and such an AWESOME music selection on the dance floor!
In short, you rock!
Thank you for being part of the team that made our wedding day extra special – we had the perfect day!
Shaun & Mia
on August 8, 2015
A once in a lifetime experience
We knew that getting married was going to be one of the most important days of our life’s and that it was critical for us to surround ourselves with the correct people.
We were fortunate enough to be able to partner with the Wedding DJ’s as they made life so much simpler with regards to all our wedding planning as well as the actual event.
Grant was a great help and became like a friend to us even though we had only met a few times and known each other for a short while. We had an incredible wedding and a lot of this was due to the music, sound system, arrangements and professionalism of the Wedding DJ’s.
Grant, to you and your team – we cannot thank you enough and would recommend you to any couple looking to have a “lekker” party on their wedding day.

You’ll definitely be the first person we call when we’re organising my 40th in a few years!! You were the best part of the whole party!
Have a super afternoon

Dear DJ Grant,
What a fantastic selection of tunes on Saturday!
Excellent sound quality, appropriate lights, prompt arrival, accommodating with requests. Felt just like Take 5 and the Da Vinci’s of our youth. A tick in every box! Very many thanks for the masterful execution.

Thank you so much for being a part of our day, and putting on an amazing gig.
Everyone had a massive jol…
We have seen the pics uploaded to FB, amazing… thanks for those too.
The Wedding DJ, specifically Grant, made our day most memorable. From beginning to end, nothing but professionalism and a vast knowledge of songs to play at the right time. I would, and already have, recommended The Wedding DJ for any wedding.

Thanks so much for everything Grant, we were so incredibly happy with how everything went on the day. I was nervous that I hadn’t met you beforehand to run through everything with you but I needn’t have worried at all, you were so professional and organised! Everything was absolutely seamless.
The music was perfect, it really set the tone and everyone truly had such a blast, ourselves included. Not only did you interact with the crowd and make the throwing of the bouquet and garter such fun, you downloaded a specially requested song last minute and even took amazing photos for us too!
You really made our dream wedding that much more special, we couldn’t have been happier.

Apologies this has taken so long to get to you, work has been so manic!
I just wanted the opportunity to give you some feedback on the awesome job you did at our wedding.
It was so wonderful to just arrive and know everything would be taken care of, the music was playing, your set up was so neat and the everyone already seemed to be having a great time. You thought of everything, even the microphones for the speeches.
I know that we gave you so little in terms of preparation for the music we may have needed. Yet you were able to pull anything we wanted and needed out of a hat! Including the most perfect father daughter song, first dance song for Nish and I, as well as a song for my step dad and I!
I know you had to deal with some difficult guests, I just wanted to thank you for taking their poor attitude in your stride and for giving the incredible service I knew you would!
We were so relaxed the whole evening and it was so wonderful to have a DJ like yourself that just took care of all our entertainment needs J thank you for the incredible service, the great music and your wonderful friendly attitude, it really made the night. I’m so grateful we managed to have you as our DJ for the night, but you ended up being so much more than that for us.
So very big thank you!
Cindy & Nish

I just want to say a huge thank you for all your efforts to meet all our requests for the day.

Justin and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being an incredibly awesome DJ for our wedding on 23 December 2014! You kept the dance floor full all of the time, which was amazing!
People commented throughout the night and even days after the wedding on the music and the vibe and how much fun they had!
Even the pictures you took were great, it was so nice to be able to see some of the moments captured that you end up missing on the day.
We will certainly recommend to you to anyone getting married, we are absolutely thrilled! Everything ran so smoothly, even though I didn’t have time to meet you before the wedding and forgot to give you the booking form (oops!) you read the crowd well and didn’t miss a beat!

I was so worried prior to the event that not many people would dance, but thanks to your awesome choice of music, the dance floor was packed from start to finish! Thanks for reading the crowd so well – you anticipated exactly what music people would like, across all cultures. So many people from our company have requested that you Dj for our year end function again next year!

Hi there Grant,
Thanks for making our day so special!! It was an epic evening and the music was perfect from start to finish.

After all the anxiety I had with being tasked to arrange the gala dinner, I am really glad it has gone off so well !
We have had excellent compliments from our national and international delegates, who all agreed that Saturday night was a really great party!
Everyone enjoyed the music, hence we had to negotiate for more time on the dance floor!

Dustin and I would just like to thank you for doing such an amazing job at our wedding! You managed to get people on the dance that would normally not dance which just added to the special day. Thank you for your awesome special touches to the night which made guests laugh. You were definitely the best choice for our wedding. Grant you absolutely rocked it!!!
I have attached some photo’s as well for you to choose from, and again thank you. We had so many guests complimenting our choice of DJ

Sarah and I just wanted to thank you for absolutely killing it on Saturday night. You were phenomenal. Most guests that we have spoken to have told us that they thoroughly enjoyed the music and how you kept the party pumping. Most of all, by the looks of it any way, the fun you had rubbed off on the guests.
Callum & Sarah
on June 7, 2014
We really danced up a storm on our wedding night. Grant was there to see us through the entire day, providing the music for the ceremony and right to when all the guests left or went to bed. He was exceptional at delivering exactly what our wants were, from all our music choices, which were quite particular and varied from the norm. Even at the wedding we had additional recommendations coming through from guests that were quite out of the ordinary, and still Grant managed to deliver. Thank you for being a part of and making our day special.

Choose Sounds Unique!! Grant was recommend to us by friends and we are so happy we went with him.

Coming out from the UK,
we had so much to sort out for our big day!
At the VERY last minute we gave our music list to Grant,
he played every song! Never a mention of – Can’t!
Having a daytime wedding, all light and bright,
we were worried people wouldn’t dance like they would do at night!
But Grant got the guests quickly on their feet,
nobody had any desire to sit down on their seat!
Sounds Unique we do commend,
and Grant we definitely do recommend!
A friendly and professional DJ,
whom we glad we had for our wedding day!

on January 25, 2014
Thank you really for the absolutely amazing job you did at our wedding. We really could not have asked for a better DJ than Grant and our guests absolutely loved the vibe he created! Haha we got told to get divorced and remarried just to party again! My husband and I live in Cape Town, so even though I only got to meet up with Grant once before the wedding (as the wedding was in Amanzimtoti), and my husband only met him at the wedding, he instinctively knew exactly what we wanted for the ceremony and reception. The music was truly a good combination that suited the needs of everyone, and most importantly, added to the ambiance that we desired.
Grant, thank you for helping create our perfect wedding!
Simonique and Cheyne
Mother of the Bride:
I just wanted to say thank you very much for your services on that very special day (25 Jan 2014) for the bridal couple, family, friends and guests.
Everybody thoroughly enjoyed your music!
I will, most certainly, recommend you for any function!
on December 31, 2013
I just want to thank Grant for being such a great Dj! We hired Grant for our New Years bash and a bash it was! He is really good at getting everyone on the dance floor and any requests that guests made he played them! We will definitely be using Grant again for our next party! Thanx again

I would like to formally thank you for being a wonderful DJ at my party in December.
For anyone who is interested I can be contacted and confirm that Grant was fantastic. He managed to read the crowd so well and kept the party going with his fantastic choice of songs to play. Grant himself was at all times professional but fun and even got into the theme of the party. Thanks Grant for helping to make the party the success it was.
on December 7, 2013
Thank you Grant for doing such a brilliant job at our wedding, your professionalism throughout the day was fantastic – I just left you too it and never had to worry. The quality and quantity of the music you played couldn’t have been better and getting everyone in the spirit of things for the garter and bouquet throwing was classic!
Myself and Craigh are incredibly grateful and have the most amazing memories of our special day. We would definitely recommend you.
Sarah & Craigh
on August 31, 2013
Thank you Grant for making sure there was always a crowd on the dance floor on our special day! From the outset you were really professional and we never had a doubt in our minds that everything would be timed to perfection. You managed to incorporate a wide mix of music genres to suit the many requests from our guests as well as ourselves which we were really impressed with. Not only that but you managed to bring together the multi-cultural group of people from the UK, South Africa and Portugal.
We would definitely recommend you to our friends and family.
Thanks for helping to create such special memories.

Grant did an AMAZING job at our wedding at The Windmills on the 27th July 2013. One of my fears for the big day was that no one would get up and dance during the reception but with Grant’s crowd pleasing variety of music fitting all ages and styles EVERYONE was on the dance floor. He also helped me the nervous Bride in making sure that everything went according to plan with the MC and even gave me GREAT advise! Everything was done so well and professional. From me walking down the isle to partying the night away Grant ensured that it was perfect even when he got silly requests from me.
Thank you SO much you help create the perfect day for us!
Matt & Kristi

Just a short note to say a very BIG thank you for being the most fantastic (and professional) DJ we could have asked for. Good friends of ours highly recommended you for the job and we were so grateful to have you play such an important role at our wedding. When we were planning our wedding, several people told us that the DJ is the most important part of a wedding in that the music can ‘make or break’ a wedding. We are very pleased to report that you definitely made our wedding day. This was evident from the fact that our guests who remained on the dance floor until the venue closed.
We were also very impressed that you constantly interacted with our MC which ensured that the proceedings flowed throughout the evening. Thank you again.
Patrick & Siobhan Leyden
on May 4, 2013
Just a quick note to say thanks, Where do we start? You went so far beyond our expectations of ‘a wedding DJ’, I’d say you became an honorary member of the bridal party!
Your professionalism and honesty were truly valued from when we first started emailing through to closing the reception doors in the wee hours of the morning! You kept that dance floor on fire the whole night, with a superb selection of music and the ability to fulfil any request thrown at you.
We were especially grateful that you handled the garter and bouquet throw planning from start to finish (something we were originally going to exclude). The words ‘just leave it to me, all you need to do is pitch up, it will be fun’ were exactly what we needed to hear.
Thanks again for everything, there is no DJ around that can match the service we received from Sounds Unique.

Ramola and I got married at Greensleeves on the 11 August 2012. Grant is a cool bloke who assisted us in getting the DJ plan together at the last minute as, naturally, we were completely pre-occupied with other aspects for our wedding day.
We gave Grant specific requirements, and Grant was more than willing to work within those limits; even though it meant that he could not play some of the most popular songs at that time.
Grant also had the challenge of entertaining guests of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. He entertained the whole crowd… from Hindi, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Zulu, Xhosa, English, and a few other examples…
With him keeping within our requirements, and Grant’s enthusiasm to please the crowd, we got the party we wanted: a good, clean, wedding reception to celebrate the dignified manner we planned our wedding day.
Thanks Grant for doing a fantastic job and keeping your client’s need in mind.
Justin & Ramola

Grant from Sounds Unique DJ’d for us at our awesome wedding at Zimbali Fairmont in July. Apart from being a fantastic guy and friend, he was an excellent DJ. He played music to suit all ages and music styles ? although he did stick mostly with our style, which is exactly how we wanted it! He also kept the volume at a reasonable level ? we didn’t have to shout to each other above the music, which is again, exactly how we wanted it. Thanks Grant!

Our wedding was the most amazing day and everything fell into place so perfectly! It just wouldn’t have been the same without you as our DJ, you made everything effortless and amazing and all our guests also commented on what an excellent DJ you are. You took care of everything on your side and made our day extra special, thank you so much!

I would like to thank Grant so much for being so patient and understanding with our wedding. We gave him our list of songs that we needed played, which he delivered exceptionally. Great choice of music was played throughout the evening for all ages.
We would recommend Grant any day, very reliable, funny, and thank you for meeting us before hand to go through everything. Much Appreciated.

Just want to send a big thank you for DJ’ing at our wedding, the dance floor was packed for most of the evening which is always a good sign of a great DJ! Thank you for meeting up with us beforehand and putting my stressed out mind at easeJ It’s been great getting to know you, and thanks again for all you did to make our day so special.
All the best,

Grant DJ’d at our wedding 31st March 2012, at Palm Dune Lodge in Blythedale Beach. He did an absolutely fantastic job, he even helped choose songs for us at the last minute which we hadn’t thought of earlier (during the signing & walking back down the isle) and due to his obvious experience everything went so smoothly. The real party started straight after the first dance and continued right through to the very end, all thanks to Grant with his great range of music – even some for the oldies. I was impressed with his range of the latest stuff too, he was able to play any request.
A very genuine guy who was involved from start to finish, he could have easily been one of our guests, he seemed to get on with everyone. I can honestly say he is the best DJ I have ever come across, and that is not just because I was having the best night of my life.
Thanks Grant, it was an absolute pleasure having you DJ at our wedding!
I will definitely be recommending you to everyone I can.

We would like to give a big shout out to Grant from Sounds Unique who totally made it happen for our beach wedding on the 3rd of March 2012. He mixed in our various requests throughout the day and night and kept a great flow of music coming which suited each part of the event. He was a great MC adapting easily to impromptu turns of events (limbo competitions for example) and made sure everyone was having a good time until the bitter end. Grant really did a fantastic job and it just would not have been the same without him!

Just want to say thank you so so much for the excellent job you did. We loved our chilled beach wedding music (sorry about the rain on your equipment) and our relaxed reception vibe. We had both old and young family and friends comment on the good range of music you played. Thank you also for being so helpful. Coming from the UK there were many last minute things to sort and you didn’t stress when we didn’t have an entrance or first dance song sorted. Thankyou for your suggestions and last minute intervention with these. We are hugely greatful.
Grant’s professionalism, helpfulness and ability to read a crowd make him a top class choice for any wedding.
Thank you again

I just want to say a huge thank you for the awesome job you did at our wedding on the 28th January at Salt Rock. From meeting with you, you gave us many options but at the end of the day we gave you the songs for the 1st dance etc & the rest we left in your hands. And I am glad we did, from after the 1st dance it was a party of note. Not once was the dance floor empty & most of the time it was packed to capacity. We had old and young dancing to the likes of AC/DC , The Clash, Guns And Rose’s , Black Eyed Peas, you name it you played it & every single person had a great party. When you rapped that MC Hammer song, that was just top class as well. Then joining us on the dance floor for some good air guitar. You know the DJ is good when he is on the dance floor !!!!
Seriously though I have never been to a wedding where there was that much dancing & I will totally recommend Sounds Unique for any function.

A wedding day…Something that no-one can really prepare you for. It’s the most amazing day of your life but there is a lot to do.
Having suppliers and service providers that relieve the stress of this volume in any way is an amazing thing. Grant was incredible.H e was punctual, efficient and he willingly agreed to relocate his entire setup due to weather change and from then on in. The party went on until 2 am in the morning. He played whatever music myself or the guests requested and was very polite and accommodating to any extra needs we had!
Thanks, Grant !

Thanks so much for all you did at Yolande and Willem’s wedding. It was a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed by all! The music was great – well done! I chatted to Marinda (Bride’s mum) and she said that they loved the dancing and vibe of the evening. I really enjoyed working with you.
It would certainly not have been what it was without you. Have a great day and I hope to work with you again soon 🙂

Grant is a Great DJ that knows what songs to play to keep the party going, and really finished off our wonderful wedding. Thanks to him for getting the job done flawlessly and effortlessly.

What an awesome wedding in the KZN Midlands, at The Bend Hotel. Thanks so much for making the day so awesome. You were professional and made sure all the sound, lighting and music flowed effortlessly. You created a wonderful party vibe which fitted our requirements perfectly. If we ever need a DJ and we are in KZN we will definitely give you a shout. If anyone out there is planning a wedding…make sure you give Grant a call…you won’t be sorry…I promise. Thanks again and keep well. See you in the future.

Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and it was made even better by the great music, the lighting and atmosphere you brought to it. The guests were commenting throughout the evening about your awesome choice in music and you definitely got everyone dancing ? young and old – and in the party spirit!! We were very impressed by your professionalism as well!
We definitely will, and have been, recommending you to our friends!
Thank you for being part of our fairy tale!

Just wanted to thank you so so much for doing such a fantastic job at our Wedding – the music was fantastic and you had such a good variety for all ages, the folks loved having such good music to dance to and all our guests commented on the music. You really made the evening and we all had a wonderful time. Thank you so much you did a great job – especially as we came from the UK a few days before our Wedding and didn’t have time to meet up and arrange our songs in person – so thank you for that.

So many people came up to us and said how great the music was at our wedding! Marc even limped the first three days of our honeymoon after a good stomping to ‘Impi’! One of my personal best memories is standing on the dance floor in a circle with my entire extended family and all singing along to an old family favourite. What fun! It’s so relaxing on your Big Day to know your music is taken care of and that your guests are entertained- you did this to the max and we thank you so very much for that.

Hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend in Himeville last weekend? Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for your brilliance at our wedding, our guests and ourselves had such a great party and so many people commented at how this was the first wedding they’ve been to where the dancefloor was busy ALL night….brilliant!!
Hope the B&B was nice and you got back safely?

Thanks again for doing such a great job at our wedding – we both had a great time and so did all the guests. Your music selection certainly hit just the right spot and got everyone up and about – no worries about not enough people getting on the dance floor at our wedding! I’m sure the evening would not have been such a fantastic party without your contribution – will certainly be recommending you to many others.

Andrew and I would just like to thank you for the brilliant job you did as DJ at our wedding. You played all our requests and kept the party going – we certainly didnt want to leave!!
Please can you remind me of the song you played when we walked back down the aisle – would like to keep every detail 🙂
We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and everything of the best for 2011.

RE: DATA PRO – STAR WARS FUNCTION – DEC 2010
As an Events Company we work with lots of operators in a Corporate market. Our events depends as much on our operators as our own inputs and without your outstanding efforts and quality of work, the success of this function would not be possible!!
Myself and the crowd really enjoyed your energetic approach not to talk about the variety of music that addressed everyone’s expectations.
Thank you for all your effort and we are looking forward to work with you again in the future.
on November 6, 2010
Just a quick thank you from Mich and I for doing an excellent job at our wedding. I know for events such as weddings music can often set the tone for the night. We had a blend of young and old folk, which – music wise I was concerned about, however, you nailed the balance and variety perfectly to set a great vibe. Will most defiantly be recommending you to mates!

I would just like to thank you for making Marilise and Fancois wedding day such a wonderful memory on the 9th of October 2010. Living in the country makes things difficult but you came to the party and my word was it a party.
As a mother you always want your daughter’s big day to be one that you will never forget, and I promise you I will never forget it. And if it was not for you that provided us with such stunning music no one would have been able to enjoy the night. I think if it was depending on the guests you will still be playing.
I would recommend Grant to anyone who needs a party that you will never forget old or young. I wish you all the best for the future and maybe in a few years time we will meet again because there is one more bride to be I have to do.
Thank you once again.

We got married on the 25 September 2010 at Lythwood Lodge in the Natal Midlands. Grant Boonzaier from Sounds Unique was our DJ. Grant was absolutely fantastic – he assisted right the very start at our ceremony right up until the last guests were all partied out! Our guests (and over selves) did not want to leave the dance floor. Everyone had such a great time. Grant managed to keep all the guests happy ranging from our younger guests to my Dad and his friends. Grant – thank you for helping in making our special day even more special. To this day our guests are still speaking about our wedding and what a party they had.
Thank you very very much for making our day so awesome and for being so accommodating with everyone!

Finally, I have pictures! Thank you for the wonderful evening of music at our wedding. Attached is a pdf I put together of images of our guests enjoying themselves on the dance floor to your tunes. I went to a wedding this last weekend with friends who attended mine and they were still saying what a wonderful time they had at our wedding and what a fantastic DJ we hired. Even our bar tenders and drivers of our Jags were dancing (and my mother singing)!
on September 11, 2010
Sorry this has taken so long to get to! We just want to say thanks for the awesome entertainment that you provided for our wedding reception. It went a long way to ensuring that we all had a great party and your experience with hosting wedding functions definitely helped keep everything on track! thanks so much.

Shaun and I have seriously had some questionable ‘referred’ dj’s and sadly they have been for our most memorable occasions. Namely our engagement and then our wedding!!! Even after giving song choices ? their flow did not work at all! Since then I do all my own music for our parties, which has worked out perfectly but it literally takes me weeks to do. So this time I had to think of something else for Shaun’s 40th and thanks to Damon Beard’s referral we had the most awesome DJ that evening EVER! YOU!
After speaking to you Grant, I was not in the least bit concerned ? I knew I had found the best of the best! Your selection of music was perfect and we had not even discussed this. You just felt the crowd and the vibe and went with it. There were always people on the dance floor & you even had a few of our lady guests on our bar! You really managed to entertain a group of 70+ people. Well Done!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you ? this will never be forgotten!

Thank you so much for making Helen and Erik’s wedding into such a great party on the 29th May!! Our guests came from all over the world, including Santiago,San Fransisco, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Harare and locally, and everyone LOVED your selection of music. Because everyone had been partying hard for the week prior to the wedding, I was a bit anxious that the actual wedding would be an anticlimax, but in fact, you made it into the pinnacle event it was supposed to be! Our guests kept telling me that they were having an AWESOME party, so thanks for the big part you played in it. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone looking for an exceptional DJ!

Sam and I were very impressed with Grant and his friendliness and can do attitude. Our reception was a blast and everyone had a great time, especially when Grant busted out the Impi and Ice Ice Baby tunes! The father daughter dance with the voice over was also a great success and helped ease a lot of future father in law nerves. All in all 10 out of 10. Thanks Grant. Great party and send off!

Your music was absolutely wonderful – everyone commented the next morning when we were packing up on how good the DJ was. Thank you for being such a pleasure to deal with, and for being a big part in making the wedding such a success. I will definitely refer you as a preferred supplier to my future brides.

Thanks, Grant for making our wedding night the most enjoyable and pleasurable time ever. You were professional, accommodating, talented in song choice and really easy going. There was not one song that sent people off the dance floor. If ever we need a DJ again, it will most certainly be you. Thanks for a great and stress-free service – my husband being a professional photographer & therefore meeting loads of DJs in his career was hugely impressed by you. Thanks and well-done.

Where does one start!!! Planning a wedding in a different country is one scary task however what an amazing day! All our fears and worries were for nothing! Having not even met you before the wedding proved to be something that was not a problem at all! You professionalism made it so easy to work with you and my goodness was it a night to remember! You had every one on the dance floor literally till early hours – we couldn’t have wished for anything more!
Our wedding was truly a dream come true and you played a big part in that! I can’t thank you enough and truly would recommend you to anyone getting married. I have even recommended that Tala put you down as their preferred DJ!!!
Thanks so much Grant ? we hope to bump into you again at another wedding for another great party!

Thanks for all your hard work, we loved all the music, and you did an awesome job. Everyone said they loved the music, and you judged the crowd all the time, making sure the dance floor was never empty. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks for a DJ.

Claire and I were married in the Midlands on 31 Dec 2009 at St Ives. Grant was the DJ and was absolutely great. We had paid till 3 in the morning and he carried on till the venue closed without even saying that he wanted more cash (like some DJ’s do). Anyways, he played all the requests that people asked for and the dance floor was packed the whole night! Great choice of songs at the right time and very professional. All and all we are 100% happy with the service and highly recommend him for any function. Grant has our details should you wish to get more information.

I’m so sorry for the very late BIG THANK YOU!!!!! Life seems to have run away with us a bit, new home, baby on the way… big changes.
Anyway, Ryan and I had the most awesome night of our lives at our wedding… it was just perfect but the best part (besides the Hot bride of course LOL only playing… the FOOD) was the music. Geez you get the people moving… Even my Aunty Barbara who has not seen a dance floor in years was ‘grinding it up’ ha ha ha TILL THE END!!!!!! Really you made the night. Thank you sooooooooooooooo much for staying till 1:30am.
The music was perfect and I loved that you allowed guests to ask for requests… that makes all the difference. The dance floor never got a break.. it was full all the time and that makes you an AWESOME DJ… thank-you thank-you thank-you
Friends are still talking about our wedding and how good the venue and the music was.

A belated but very sincere thank you for rocking our wedding on October 3rd 2009! My 6 year old niece just wants to get a DJ at home, like the man at the wedding, and move all the furniture and dance all day! You left this impression on a 6 year old, as well as the rest of our guests and we are so relieved to have had you recommended to us…we were not disappointed! Thanks for all the communication up to the big day, for making it all happen so flawlessly, you just did your thing and made that important aspect of our wedding one less thing to stress about because you just had things under control! Thanks again, you will be highly recommended and I hope we have reason one day to use your services again!

Grant Boonzaier carried out his duties as DJ at our wedding on 5th September at Jex Estate excellently. His service has been efficient and professional from start to finish. Grant arrived promptly at the venue, had state of the art equipment and played the music that we had discussed interpretting the mood brilliantly. We had many compliments from our friends regarding the great music that was played. Grant definitely played to our taste! We do not hesitate in recommending Grant to DJ at your function or wedding.

I just want to thank you for making our ‘Night at the Oscars’ function on Friday night such a success. My work colleagues have all been ‘raving’ about how fantastic you were!

We will definitely be using you again for our next big function!

Wedding at Cranford on March 14, 2009
Hi there Grant!
Mark and I just wanted to say a proper thank you for all you did to make our wedding such an awesome party. Everyone who was at our wedding raved not only about your music, but about your ability to get the WHOLE crowd onto the dance floor – young and old, not all DJ’s manage to get that right! We also really appreciate you not charging us the ‘after 12’ fee, your generosity was a fantastic suprise and is greatly appreciated … thank you very much! We have already given your number out to a few people and will happily give it to anyone looking for a BRILLIANT DJ!
Thank you again for EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
