Testimonials for Max Baun
Kate & Jon - Wedding, December 2012 (Tupper Manor, Beverly, MA)
"Jon and I (and my parents) would like to thank you from the bottom of all of our hearts for rock'n da hizzay:) and throwing such a seamless and great reception! We got SO many compliments about the "DJ and how beautiful the lighting was". Even my cousin who doesn't dance at all or really enjoys weddings said "I have to give it to you couz, not a huge fan of weddings and hooplahs, but this was one great party, probably the best I've ever been too". So Max, hats off to you and Thank you...I am so glad my mom & I met you at Misselwood. Right from the start, you made our quick planning seem like a piece of cake! I greatly appreciate all you did for us; from the custom cuts of our dance songs, to really getting to know both of our music styles, to the custom wedding cd you made for us, and most of all such a memorable and wonderful time and PARTY! You truly are great at what you do. Again, thanks to you and C-Zone Music for making it the most memorable and special day of our lives."
Wedding, October 2012 (Salvatore's, Lawrence, MA)
"Our DJ Max was truly wonderful to work with. He helped us with the music we wanted to play, our accent lighting was Amazing and we received compliments all night on how beautiful the entire hall looked. I decorated and the accent lighting just made it look even more awesome! He was polite, fun, upbeat and very professional to work with. We also had a Harpist for the ceremony which was also fantastic and again everyone raved over both DJ and Harpist...Thank you and C-Zone for providing us with a truly wonderful ceremony and wedding that we will always remember."
Meredith & Andy - Wedding, August 2012 (Exeter Inn, Exeter, NH)
"Andy and I were married this past Saturday at the Exeter Inn. We had hired Max to DJ the cocktail hour and reception. We just wanted to take some time out and let you know what a phenomenal job Max did! He kept the dance floor packed all night and played a lot of our favorite songs without us even telling/asking him :). It was though he was reading our minds. I'm sure as you recall the wedding day goes by in a blink of an eye and it was very nice to know that our DJ was on top of his game and going to provide the best service and atmosphere for our special day. We can not praise Max enough! He really was professional and accommodating! We wish we could relive this day over and over again :). Thank you for your service and please pass along to Max how delighted we were he was our DJ."
Kelly & Dave - Wedding, August 2012 (Sweet Berry Farm, Middletown, RI)
"Max!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You were the absolute best DJ I have ever seen in my life!!! I can't tell you how many people have called me today to get your information. I hope this will bring you tons of business and then you can make it to the MTV Music Awards like David Guetta! Seriously, you made our day and night perfect and I am incredibly happy because of you and your hard work. :)"
Grace & Louis - Wedding, July 2012 (Boston Public Library)
"Hi Max, just want to write a letter to tell you what a nice job you did on our wedding. The music selection was so nice!! I received a lot of compliments during and after the wedding regarding the music and everyone liked them. It was truly a great pleasure to work with you and we love so much the little CD you made for us, we put it in our car and play it everyday!! :=) A quick favor if I may ask - could you please send over a complete list of songs that you played during our cocktail and reception if you happen to have them, I just so love them! Thank you again!"
Liz & Chris - Wedding, July 2012 (Willowdale Estate, Topsfield, MA)
"Max, a million thanks for last night!! We had such an Incrediable time! I just had to email you first thing this am bc you made the wedding!! You had people up dancing that I have never seem dancing and never in a million years would have imagined would be up there. Honestly, every person that came up to me at the end of the night was raving about how fun it was and how amazing you were. You have truly found your calling!!!! It honestly was exactly what I wanted and dreamed it would be. You are amazing! Thank you thank you!!!"
Celia & Jake - Wedding, August 2011 (DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA)
"Max! You are THE MAN!!!
Seriously, how freaken awesome were you Saturday night? The party was so hopping, that the floor was moving. Loved it!
Also, I just learned that you were playing acoustical versions of pop songs prior to the ceremony. How freaken awsome was that?!?! My friends said they would hum along trying to figure out the song. Oh how I wish I could have been a guest at my own wedding!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You (and your assistant) are amazeballs. Next time I throw a party, I'm giving you a call."
Laurie & Eric - Wedding, April 2011 (CruisePort, Gloucester, MA)
It has been a few months since our big day, but wanted to thank you and Max for the perfect wedding night. One of my groomsmen is getting married next and asked for your information which I have passed on. All of our guests continue to praise Max and the talents he possesses at keeping that dance floor moving. Max was a perfect fit, in lieu of you of course, and did a phenomenal job in every aspect. We just got the video back from Mavid Productions and got to really enjoy watching Max in action utilizing the uplights adding that perfect party environment. Many of our guests said they have never been to such a fun wedding and can't imagine ever being at another wedding of that caliber.
We greatly appreciate the vendors that you helped get together for the evening as everyone participating had such a great impact. We strongly will be recommending CZone for all future marriages!!"
Stacey & Matt - Wedding, March 2011 (Hyatt Harborside, Boston, MA)
"You were so fantastic to work with during the whole wedding process and during the wedding. It meant a lot to us with how accommodating and helpful you were with everything. I also really appreciated you checking in during the reception to make sure everything was going fine. It really meant alot.
My co-workers told me when I went back to work yesterday that it was the most fun that had ever had at a wedding and all of our family and friends came up to us after the wedding to tell us what a fantastic time they had. You kept the crowd going all night and the music was great! Matt's mom commented to my mom that she had never seen a bride dance so much and have as much fun as I did. I attribute it to your amazing DJ skills. I seriously would have kept dancing for several more hours if I could have.
I have a co-worker who is getting married next fall and I will be sure to pass your name onto him.
Thank you so much for everything! We will be sure to keep in touch. If you ever have a client who wants a reference don't hesitate to give them our name. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ."
Edward & Marisa - Wedding, January 2011 (Hellenic Center, Ipswich, MA)
"Thanks for everything. You've been 110% professional and reliable through this whole experience. We couldn't be more pleased! We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an expert DJ for their event. Thanks again!"
Rachel & Justin - Wedding, October 2010 (Wedgewood Pines CC, Stow, MA)
"I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for everything C-Zone provided for Justin's and my wedding this past Saturday. The day could not have turned out better! I have never had so much fun at a wedding (I am biased, I know!) and judging by the crowd we had, I know they had an unbelievable time! The uplighting was beautiful and it really created a fantastic feel at Wedgewood. I was talking to Kerri Macaluso at Wedgewood Pines and she was hoping that more people would use it because of how great it turned out!
But I really want to express to you how lucky you are to have Max Baun working for you. I have never met someone as professional as Max. From the moment we met Max up until the last hug, he bent over backwards for us. Whenever we met with Max, he always made the journey to meet us in Quincy. He always told us he "would be in the neighborhood" for our meetings but I know that wasn't the case and he drove from the North Shore to meet us on the South Shore. He was so thorough and detailed with us-from which versions of songs we wanted for the wedding to what color tie he would wear to fit in.
Max also checked in periodically with me all night to see how I thought things were going (awesome!) and he was always reading the crowd for what he thought they wanted to hear. We had quite the dancing group which, honestly, surprised me. I have some friends that go to weddings and are always the people sitting at tables never really dancing-that wasn't the case at our wedding. Even these friends were up dancing and having the time of their lives. I know I couldn't have been the only reason for their enthusiasm! Max took requests that pumped up the crowd and song after song, we kept the party going!
What I also greatly appreciated was Max's willingness to find some Persian music for our wedding. Justin's family is partly Persian and having some music to have them dance to was important. Max was able to incorporate both traditional Persian dances and current pop Persian dances into the wedding that just flowed with the rest of the music.
I could go on and on about Max. He really showed us how much he wanted to be a part of this wedding and I loved every moment of the wedding. C-Zone Music, along with Max, really made our wedding day that much more spectacular and I am forever grateful for that. I know that if anyone is looking for a DJ/music, I will recommend C-Zone every time!"
Katie - Wedding, August 2010
"I recently used Max Baun from C-Zone Music and I have to say he was AMAZING!!! HE MADE MY WEDDING WONDERFUL!!!! When I first got engaged I had a nightmare that I had a DJ who played all horrible music at my wedding and I woke up in a cold sweat. Seriously, (I'm a control freak about music, especially when it came to my wedding.) I told Max this in our first conversation and he assured me he'd play what I wanted. Throughout the months leading up to my wedding I heard horror stories of bad DJs playing horrible music, or not playing what people asked them too, or just not showing up for weddings! I was so scared. I took lots of time arranging what I wanted played and was in communication with Max up until the day before the wedding. HE IS AWESOME. He is soooo nice and cool and put up with my craziness, (hell, I'd hang out with him if I lived in MA). I cannot say enough great things about him. He knew exactly the kind of vibe I wanted at my wedding and I would use him again over and over and over. All my guests were dancing the whole time and he was so professional about everything, I can't say enough about him. He also brought an assistant that was very nice and helpful as well. I'm not a friend of his or wasn't put up to writing this. I am someone who wants to spread the wealth of a great experience, especially at an event as important as a wedding. He even made two cds of our wedding music for us to have, so nice. Thanks Max, I'll never forget how much fun you made our wedding day!"
Madeline - Wedding, July 2010 (Rockport Golf Club, Rockport, MA)
"I just wanted to say thank you so much, you made our wedding so awesome! Everyone had such a great time and I know there were some people who didn't leave the dance floor all night. Many guests have commented on how great you were and how much fun they had. Thanks also for the CD, we loved listening to it. You were so helpful and easy to work with and were so great at responding to my emails. I will recommend you to anyone I know who's looking for a DJ in the future. Please feel free to use me as a reference."
Andy & Shawna - Wedding, July 2010 (Raffael's, Hull, MA)
"Just wanted to drop you a line about our wedding Saturday. We could not have been happier with both Felix and Max. The weather was really not cooperating with our outdoor service right up until the time we started when the rain finally subsided. Felix could not have been cooler about the situation (I'm sure he was a little stressed about his equipment). But the rain stopped and he played beautifully. And what can I say about Max? He was unbelievable. We have already had many people comment on how awesome the DJ was. The floor was packed all night and we all had such a great time. We will recommend your company and Max specifically whenever we are asked. Just wanted to say thanks to you, and have you relay our thanks to the both of them, for making our night such a memorable one."
Nicole & John - Wedding, May 2010 (Hyatt Harborside, Boston, MA)
"One word to describe Max and the show he put on this past Saturday at our wedding "AMAZING". He totally made the party and I just want you to know that you are all lucky to have such talent as part of your company. He has been awesome to work with, helped us tremendously, did everything we ever could ask for and we could not have asked for more! If we can be of reference for Max or your company at any time please don't hesitate to call John or I. We had a blast, and cannot wait to see the video to relive it all again! Thank you and Thank Max for making our day so special!"
Susan Shulins - Bar Mitzvah, May 2010
"Just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you what a wonderful job Max did for our son's Bar Mitzvah last Saturday. He (and his assistants) were beyond excellent. Max kept the boys occupied and entertained the entire time and they adored him! He followed our requests and didn't forget a thing we asked him to do. He emceed the event and special activities to perfection. He was on top of his game the whole time and was so amazing with the kids and the adults. He (and his assistants) made our event so wonderful and special. We couldn't be happier with the way things went and are, in fact, sending him a nice tip for going above and beyond what we expected. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone I know. Max is awesome."
Rina Schneur - Bat Mitzvah, March 2010 (Seaport Hotel, Boston, MA)
"Max Baun was the DJ/MC at our daughter's Bat Mitzvah on March 3, 2010. Max was awesome! He is very client oriented, extremely responsive and delivered a top notch performance. For us, it was important to have lots of energy and dancing at the party, so selecting the MC/DJ was the highest priority, even before venue choice. We interviewed about 10 candidates, 6 of them also at a face-to-face meeting. Max was the first we met with, and we liked him right away. He remained our top selection after all the meetings - and we made the right decision!
During the process of preparing for the event (and we had only 3 months to do it), Max was extremely responsive and attentive. He focused on what was important to us, with respect to style, music and timeline. He met with us quite a few times. I offered to do it by phone, but he proposed to come over to work with us - and he did. My daughter is very much into music, so he worked with her on music for the evening; we also gave him songs we wanted him to play and he worked with us based on his experience to see if and where they fit. Max also went to see the venue before hand. He then helped us figuring out the lighting based on our needs. Any email or phone message was returned within a day. In fact, the preparation process was a lot of fun by itself.
On the week before the party, we were in constant communication to make sure all the details were finalized with the party, venue and stage set up etc. On the day of the event, Max and his team were there a few hours earlier to set up the room - and it looked great!
We had about 70 kids and same number of adults and Max had them all energized and engaged all night long. On the spot he tailored the music and games to the crowd and also played some music as we needed based on some last minute surprises some of the guests prepared. He mixed the music and dances so that it brought the kids and adults to the dance floor all the time. We had 5 hours of almost non stop dancing with LOTS of energy. The kids were totally engaged with all the games. There was one game that we asked Max which involves both adults and kids - something we had seen before - and he worked on it and delivered it perfectly getting all involved. Again, a testimony to how responsive and client oriented he is.
Everyone I talked to following our party told me they were SO impressed with Max and his team and how much energy there was all night long. Typically, when looking for a reference, people ask to point out what could be better. I have been trying to think about that, but honestly could not come up with anything. It was such a perfect night and mostly due to Max."
Laurie & Joe - Wedding, January 2010 (The State Room, Boston, MA)
"Hi Max...you were fabulous!!! I think you could tell by the number of people who wanted your card. The music you selected was fantastic. You got everyone, young and old, up dancing. Thank you so much. The music always makes or breaks a good time, and we definitely had a great time!!"
Jeffrey & Michael - Wedding, September 2009 (Salvatore's, MA)
"The professionalism of C-Zone Music was top-notch. Max, our DJ, worked carefully with us to customize our music and wedding night logistics. He did an excellent job reading the crowd, kept the dance floor packed, and played what we asked him to & played nothing we asked him not to. There are two specific reasons why we booked C-Zone Music. First, the other vendor would not allow us to meet with one of their DJs without an up-front payment of $200. Secondly, the other vendor's website showed pictures of 'wacky' DJs. We were looking for someone professional and not showy. We got a great value and great performance with Max."
Julie - Homecoming Dance, October 2008 (Tantasqua High School, Fiskdale, MA)
"We were so confident that Max would be professional and respectful of our requests, school policies and musical choices. He was willing to do anything possible to make sure we were happy with the sound and lights provided. He did a very good job reading the crowd and responded immediately. Our service and experience with C-Zone and Max was excellent!"
Kim - Private Party, March 2009 (Wakefield, MA)
"Max did a fantastic job at my son's homecoming party from the military. It was a huge celebration and the music was great all night. We were also so pleased to learn that Max was able to provide karaoke services as well. All of our family and friends has a wonderful time due to Max's fantastic music and personalized service. Thank you!!!"
Wedding, Beverly, MA July 2008
"Extremely pleased with service. Personable, friendly, terrific service and music selection. Worked well with our selection of music - very accommodating to our needs and requests. Great job! Would highly recommend."
Private Party, Framingham, MA, August 2008
"Max - just want to say 'thank you' again for an excellent job last Friday and it was a pleasure doing business with you. All the guests certainly enjoyed themselves and that's what this evening is all about. We look forward to having you back again next year."
