We play real music for real people. If youre looking for mind-numbing music such as Electronic, House, Trance, Techno
then we are not the right DJs for you. If you dont know what those types of music are, maybe we are the right DJs for you.
If, on the other hand, youre more familiar with terms like Big band, Jazz, Swing, Oldies(50s-60), Motown(mostly 60s),
Classic Rock, Disco, 80s Pop, 80s Rock, Country(classic & today), 90s-Today Top 40; you know,
stuff youve heard and recognize, then we are the right DJs for you. If you want music you can not only dance to but youre familiar with
then we are the right DJs for you. We love hearing, and often do, I love that song as they dance and sing-along.|
Do you consider planning assistance and getting a DJ who is a good MC is important? If so, then we are the right DJ's for you
Would you hire anyone for anything without knowing what prior customers thought of their service?
This is a sample of what clients have said.
I give you guys 5 stars! I highly recommend Grenier &
Sons to anyone wanting a good DJ service at a great price.
Harold Gonsalves, Retirement Party - Gainesville VA - December, 2005.
I was very happy with you guys and I would highly
recommend you to others.
Karissa Sweney, Wedding Reception - Fairfax VA - August, 2006.
We hired Patrick and Larry to play at our outdoor celebration
- celebrating an 80th birthday and a wedding. Prior to the event, the guys asked insightful questions to understand the
'audience' and the desired party mood, so thee were able to put together a play list that fit the party.
He helped us think through the logistics of the set-up since the party was outdoors. Patrick, Larry and their crew were very good in
communicating with us and they played a great selection of songs that perfectly accentuated the spirit of the event.
We highly recommend him and would use him again.
Elizabeth and Peter Adler, Alexandria, VA - September, 2006.
Your pre-event planning and communication was terrific!
You did a great job with choosing the appropriate music for our very specific and unique venue. Everyone had a wonderful
time! I would recommend you to others.
Amy Bishop (EYAKTEK), Corporate Party - Washington DC - December, 2006.
Matthew and I thought you and Pat did a really terrific job at the wedding. I appreciated your flexibility and patience at
the reception, and your help with the planning portion. Thank you so much for the extra effort you put into making the
special CD for us, we loved it! We will definitely be handing out your business cards! Thanks so much!
Lisa Verry, Wedding Recerption - Marshall VA - December, 2006.
Hi Patrick -
You guys really did a great job for us. I appreciate how flexible you were. It was clear that you
really listened to what we wanted and everything fit in so well with our wedding. Several of our guests
commented on how well the music fit the crowd. My husband was not sure he wanted a DJ at all, after the
wedding he said he was really glad I talked him into it because you kept things moving so well.
Thank you for helping to make our wedding so much fun!
Jennifer & Andrew, Wedding Reception - Bristow, VA - April, 2007.
We were very happy with Patrick & Larry's service. They were very accommodating and worked in a lot
of the songs that we wanted. Everyone that came said they had a great time and there were always
people on the dance floor. Consider us a good reference!
Janet Murrell, Wedding Ceremony & Reception - Independance, VA - May, 2007.
I would highly recommend the services of Grenier and Sons for any event. They met with me well in
advance of my wedding so that we could design the reception the way we wanted it. I certainly had some
different requests as far as song choices and genre's. But I really feel they nailed it and met my
specific requests in a big way. We adapted throughout the night when needed and a good time was had by
all. The reception was an absolute blast and the music was a key part of that! A DJ needs to consider
their audience carefully and they definitely did that. This was about us and our guests, not about what
they wanted or felt was the right way to do it. The Anniversary Song is a must have at any wedding.
Planning a wedding is very, very stressful. I felt we made a great decision by going with Grenier and
Sons. Professional, flexible, and reliable would be 3 words I will leave you with.
Jim and Marie Hoffsher, Wedding Reception - Arcola, VA - May, 2007.
Larry called ahead to go over several items before the wedding and made excellent suggestions for the reception.
They played a great selection of music and we were very happy to see most of our guests dancing throughout the night.
My dad decided not to have a father and daughter dance so they suggested to play the song I had chosen as a dedication
to him. That was very appropriate and worked-out great. We love the anniversary dance as well. Great Job! Thank you
so much! We highly recommend them to anyone.
Mr. and Mrs. Miller, Wedding Reception, Wheaton, MD - July 2007.
Thank you for the wonderful job you and Patrick did at our wedding. We all had a great time. You music selection was great. You really
worked with our messed up schedule yet you made it all go smoothly despite it all. Everything turned out just fine. If we need
a DJ/MC anytime again in the future, we know who to call.
Louise Santangelo, Wedding Reception, White Stone, VA - September 2007.
Dear Larry Grenier,
We just wanted to take the opportunity to thank both you and your son Patrick for helping to make our wedding night such
a memorable evening. You were truly everything we both couldve hoped for. You were professional and kept everything
flowing smoothly with a wonderful arrangement of music. We were most impressed by your wide selection of music and how
responsive you were to our needs both before and during our event. I will gladly advocate your services to any of our
friends and family and hope you and yours only the best in the future. Again, a million thanks for being part of our
joyous ceremony. It wouldnt have been the same without you.
Cordially, Juan Fuentes Jr., Wedding Reception, Wilmington, DE - October 2007.
"Grenier and Sons did a fantastic job of coordinatnig the music and events of our wedding reception from start to
finish. They began by presonnally meeting with us over dinner to get an understanding of our unique desires for the event.
They helped us understand practical limitations ... and guided us to the perfect balance of fun and class. Larry and
Patrick kept up regular communication leading up to our wedding day, keeping us confident that they had all the details
covered during a very hectic time. Extraordinarily friendly and flexible, they flawlessly got our reception schedlue back
on track despite an unexpected delay with our photographer at the chapel. Not only did they correctly read the mood of the
crowd to play the perfect music throughout the evening, they also coodinated the performance of an acapella group they had
only met a few minutes before. On top of all that, Grenier and Sons demonstrated a dedication to servicemembers that made
us proud, finding a specific "Service March Medley" tailored to our needs so we could honor our friends and family who serve
in the Armed Forces. They truly gave us the perfect soundtrack to our Special Day, and we would wholeheartedly recommend
them to anyone. Please feel free to have anyone who wants to contact us for a recommendation.
Our most heartfelt thanks,
Brian and Wendy Behler, Wedding Reception, Fort Belvoir, VA - October 2007
Grenier & Sons DJs
You guys did an awesome job Saturday night. Everyone was impressed with the variety of music played.
We definitely want to use you guys for our future events.
Darlithia Malveaux, H2Gen Innovations, Corporate Holiday Party, Alexandria, VA - December 2007
Larry and Patrick,
Thank you so much for making our twin 50th birthday bash so much fun! My twin brother and I had an absolutely fantastic
time and I know that much of that was due to the great music that was being played during our party. As you remember, I
barely got off the dancefloor the whole night! You really did a great job of reading the crowd and playing just the right
music at the right time. Of course the special songs played for my brother and I were very much appreciated. The party lights
were a fun thing to have for all! You were so attentive to our family and helped to make it an
enjoyable evening for everyone...regardless of their age! P.S. my mom really appreciated you playing her request! Thanks
for taking care of the entertainment and being willing to do a trivia game throughout the evening. Many of the people that
attended commented on the great choice of music and asked how I found you guys. I told them that I chose you over other
DJ's, because you seemed the most interested in what I wanted for this special 50th birthday bash for my twin brother and I.
Your calm and confident demeanor allowed me to feel secure that the party would be successful. Thanks again for your great
Sandy Milazzo - Twins Birthday Party, Fairfax, VA - February 2008
Larry and Patrick,
Thank you for making our fundraiser a special evening. You were so flexible and professional, in addition to playing just
the right music. It is as if you can just see a crowd and know what music they want to hear! We were especially impressed
with how you stepped in last minute to work as an auctioneer. Thank you also for adding the special lighting. The Board
would not hesitate to hire Grenier and Sons for future fundraisers, as you proved exceptional DJ and Emcee services. We
could not have done better for more money. Thank you again for your flexible and professional service.
The Dolley Madison Preschool and Northern Virginia Speech and Language Services, McLean, VA - March 2008
I must say that I was extremely pleased with your service from initial meeting to the actual party for my Big 40th Birthday Bash.
The sound levels were perfectly adjusted throughout the evening, and my guests complimented me on the great music selection.
I'm glad you suggested the party lights. One of my guests asked me, "Reggie, where did you find those DJs? I love
them!" I also really liked the trivia questions and the stats from my birth-year.
Thanks for DJing my party, and thanks for helping with some of the clean-up. You and Patrick really went the extra mile, and I
will certainly not hesitate to recommend you to others!
--Reggie Meneses - Birthday Party, Reston, VA - May 2008
Dear Larry & Mike,
We were absolutely thrilled with your services at our May 10th wedding. You played a great mix of songs that kept people dancing
and animated. You also had a wonderful knack for pacing the event and keeping us on track in terms of when to have the first dance,
cut the cake, etc. We really appreciated having your personal touch. You have our heartiest recommendation. Thank you!
Kathy and Chris - Wedding Reception, Alexandria, VA - May 2008
Dear Larry & Patrick,
Thank you for doing such a great job at my son and daughter-in-law's reception. I really appreciated your professionalism and flexibility.
Your friendly service eased the stress of hosting such an important event. You made sure all of the guests were happy - considering their
ages ranged from 0-80 that certainly was a tall order! Again, thank you for a wonderful night and I would certainly recommend your service
to my friends.
Sincerely yours, Karen Wardle - Wedding Reception, Fairfax, VA - June 2008
Patrick & Larry,
We wish the venue would have allowed us to stay alot longer. You guys did a great job. If I know anyone who needs a dj, I will be glad to
recommend you guys. The guest and the two of us had a great time. The reception went really smooth. Thanks again for a great job.
Barbara and Chris Miller - Wedding Reception, Manassas, VA - July 2008
Larry & Patrick,
You guys did a great job for our 40th decade's themed birthday party. We needed DJ's who understand that music is about atmosphere and not
so much focused on getting people to dance, even though we did quite a bit of that. It was also nice to hear our favorite songs from the decades
throughout the evening, and it played to our theme/mood very well. We appreciate that you stuck with us through the rain and for the extra hour.
We'll think of you the next time we need DJ services.
Thanks again. Ilona Gravers & Chris Gillis - Birthday Party, Herndon, VA - August 2008
Great service, I would defiantly use these guys again. They were on time, extremely helpful, and very considerate. They were able to work well with
last minute changes and kept us on schedule all night. If we could have stayed all night, we would have! Thanks guys!
Nicole & Andrew - Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Fairfax, VA - September 2008
Dear Larry & Patrick,
Thank you so much for doing such a great job at our wedding reception! You guys were very professional and fun at the same time and the music selection
was great. We appreciated your suggestions about song selections and timing, your experience as DJs really helped in that regard.
Jeff & Sara Bobish - Wedding Reception, Potomac, MD - September 2008
Thanks again you two!
Larry & Patrick were amazing! They were perfectly set up for the ceremony and the reception! The two of them made it a great reception. They played
a great mix of music and made it fun when it was time to do the traditional things. I would recommend them 100%!!! They are respectful of your music
wishes and really played a great mix! He even got my brother out on the dance floor!!
Erica Riddick - Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Bristow, VA - September 2008
Hi Larry and Patrick
You guys did a great job at Sarah’s wedding and I would be happy to recommend you to clients!
Here's my testimonial:
Larry and his son Patrick were terrific to work with from an events venue perspective. They were very courteous and professional and more than willing
to move about the facility to accommodate the bride and groom. We will certainly recommend Grenier & Sons DJ Service to clients.
- Julie Parlaman, Director of Events, ThorpeWood. - Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Thurmont, MD - October 2008
"We and our guests had a fabulous time at our wedding, thanks in large part to Larry and Patrick Grenier (GrenierDJ.com). A very affable pair,
Larry and Patrick met with us beforhand to discuss the set-up, timing, payment, and especially the kind of music we wanted played. Everything went
perfectly as planned. Our guests had a great time. We highly recommend Larry and Patrick. You won't be disappointed."
Frank and Dot Glodek, married December 2008
We recently hired Larry and Patrick Grenier to DJ a party commemorating the 50th anniversary of the “Winter Dance Party” at the Surf Ballroom
in Clear Lake, Iowa. For any of you over 60, you will remember that after this event in 1959, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper were
killed in a plane crash.
This was a theme party with poodle skirts, Moon Pies and 50’s rock and roll. While I doubt that it was the type of party Larry and Patrick do
routinely, they rose to the occasion brilliantly. Their choice of music was perfect, their research into the event was outstanding (Larry even
found an old radio clip, announcing the plane crash, and the death of the artists), and their comfortable repartee with each other, and professionalism,
helped make what we had hoped would be a really fun evening, a perfect evening.
I would recommend them without reservation, and would hire them again in an instant if the occasion ever arose.
Barbara and Mike Wright - Theme Party, Falls Church, VA - January 2009
My wife and I would like to express our gratitude to Larry and Patrick for a fabulous wedding reception music event! Everyone was impressed with the
quality of the music, both technically and in the selection of songs.
All we can say is run...do not walk...to Larry and Patrick. You won't be disappointed!
Steve & Marcy Reed - Wedding Reception - Gainesville, VA - May 2009
Hi Larry & Patrick,
I am a very private person, and as such, I don't generally do testimonials. Nevertheless, I was very happy with your service (which is saying something,
considering I'm nearly impossible to please), and the next time I need a DJ, you will be the first person I call. I will also gladly recommend you to anyone
else who might need a DJ.
Regards, Brian - Wedding Reception - Clifton, VA - May 2009
Dear Patrick & Larry,
Thanks for the great job you did at our wedding. You really set the tone for our reception and kept things moving. You were very professional and made sure the
songs we wanted were played. We were delighted with your service and would recommend you to anyone.
Diane Nellor - Wedding Reception - Alexandria, VA - June 2009
Larry and Patrick were wonderful and professional. The night flowed perfectly, and allowed us, the wedding couple, to be the center of the evening.
They were accommodating to our requests and made sure we approved any 'crazy' song requested by friends. All of our guests have stated it was the best
party EVER, and it was all thanks to the Greniers.
Ann & Eric - Wedding Reception - Washington DC - July 2009
Grenier & Sons DJ Service deejayed our daughter's wedding reception, and they were the best! Everyone was saying that this was the most fun wedding reception
they had ever been to!
In addition, Larry and Pat were professional, well-organized, and personalized the music to the bride and groom.
They would be a terrific asset to any party venue.
Gigi Strube (Mother of the Bride) - Fort McNair, DC - July 2009
We have used Grenier & Sons DJ Service for two weddings now. One for our daughter and one for our son. I give them a 10 out of 10 for their fabulous service.
I have seen many DJs over the last 30 plus years of military/federal service. No one does it better. I still have four other daughters - and I will likely be
calling on them again. They make everything easy and are highly profesional.
Jim (Father of the Bride) - Wedding Reception - Fairfax, VA - August 2009
Larry & Patrick,
I wanted to say thanks for an awesome wedding reception!! Everyone was raving about you guys and we had such a great time. The music selection was
fantastic. If you ever need a reference please let me know.
Take care, Eileen - Fairfax, VA - September 2009
We cannot say one bad thing about Grenier & Son (Larry Grenier and his son, Patrick) who performed DJ services for our wedding in
May 2010. They were professional, easy to work with, always accessible leading up to the wedding and got back to us right away
whenever we emailed them. Larry & Patrick were so helpful when we had questions or suggestions during our planning phase and also
gave us his professional opinion when needed. They played everything that we wanted and also did a great job with the music choices
that they chose. They played a great mix of music for our parents’ generation and ours....we had all ages on the dance floor the
whole night! None of us wanted the reception to end and we even convinced them to play 5 extra songs for us after their time was up
which we know most DJs would not do! They were also a great price compared to the other DJs in the DC area. Great choice and highly
