You have the beautiful flowers, the decor, the food - but the bottom line is your wedding can go "Bust" if you don't have the right DJ / MC to pull it all together.

Darrin and his team at Funfactory provide a balance of elegance and fun for your special day. I first saw them in action at the wedding of a close friend. All of the way through dinner and the reception, I kept thinking, "God, I love this song" & "what great dinner music". Using their reception planner, they make your event completely worry-free. They are all about making YOUR day exactly the way that YOU want it to be. They ask all of the right questions to the bride and groom to help make the day a complete success. I highly recommend Darrin and FunFactory to all of our clients!

You will be well taken care of in a fun and professional manner. I have known Darrin for over 10 years and he has
   
  I recommend Darrin and Fun Factory Entertainment to all my clients looking for a D.J. We have worked together for many years and I know he will make the event a success because he has the exact balance needed for any D.J.of being a total professional and also making the evening such fun for everyone. Darrin is very organized and always supplies me with a timetable for the event which is so helpful for the caterer and we work together as to when the food is to be served, champagne and cake service etc. As someone who has been in the business for 15 years, I know the D.J. is so important for the success of the function. With Darrin and Fun Factory Entertainment I have no worries and every client I have recommended him to has been absolutely delighted with Darrin and his Company.

For our wedding DJ we used Fun Factory Entertainment, who did music for the ceremony and reception at Dubsdread. Darrin Shifrel was our DJ, he was so awsome, he had people dancing all night! We did games like the garter toss, conga and the limbo. It was sooo much fun! He helped move the evening on smoothly up until the very end. Thanks to his timing no one seemed rushed, and the evening was a huge success. Also, choosing the songs was so much fun, he was great to work with. I highly recommend Fun Factory Entertainment, you will not be disappointed! :0)
 
Darrin was awesome! He did his research, was prepared, and helped put on an exceptional wedding reception for us. He helped make our wedding day better than we could have ever imagined. Not only did he personalize the reception music for us and our guests he also played the ceremony music for us. He had links on his website so that we could preview the ceremony music options since we didn't have any idea what should be played. He helped keep things moving smoothly from the very beginning to the very end. I would highly recommend Fun Factory!
 

Darrin - I am so happy that I listened to Cathie and Ryan about you. Everyone was dancing and everyone had a great time - just like Amy wanted. Amy texted me as she left the building that everything was "beyond perfect!".

My friend, who was helping me with the wedding and who has quite a bit of experience at her own venue, said that she had never encountered a DJ who was better at keeping everything and everyone organized and she liked the way you kept everything moving with absolutely no dead space. She was very impressed (as were we).

I also wanted to thank you again for the white chairs. They did definitely add to the beauty of the ceremony.

If you ever need any "word of mouth" advertising, just send them my way. We would definitely highly recommend you.

Hi Darrin,

Larry and I are about to head off on our honeymoon, but didn't want to leave without dropping you a quick note to say thank you.

You were recommended to us by Christiana at Dubsdread. She actually said "when I get married, I'm having Darrin DJ my wedding!" She was so right. From the first communication with you, to the last dance at the wedding, you have been so friendly, professional, accommodating, and pure fun! Please know how special your role was in our day. The skilful way you handled our music choices throughout the ceremony and reception, the way you 'read' our guests and knew how to keep the fun going, or set a new tone, it was all taken care of and our guests three days later are commenting on how 'great the DJ was!'

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our day was perfect in our minds. You were a huge part of that, and you'll forever be on our speed dial for future events!

Deepest gratitude,
Kelly & Larry Harrington (& Nicholas too)

 

Darrin was very easy to work with, helpful with planning and carried the night along perfectly!

Marie

 

Darrin did everything we asked and more for the wedding. Everything went perfectly!

John

 

SOOO MUCH FUN!!! He was awesome! He played the best music ever!!!! I was on the dance floor the whole entire time along with my guests. He definitely made my receoption a great party! The next day I had people calling me just to tell me how much fun they had and I owe that to the great entertainment Darrin gave us that day!! HE IS DEFINIELTY A MUST If your looking to have a DJ!

Christina

 

Darren was amazing!! He did exactly what we wanted and everyone loved it!

Dana

 
Claire and I would like to thank you so so much for your hard work in making our wedding beyond what we could have ever imagined. I think it is fair to say it was the best day of our lives. To be honest it all seemed like such a blur but now we have returned home and looked at the photographs it was everything we could have wanted and more. Your organization prior to the wedding and ensuring that we had nothing to worry about on the night was something that maybe could go unnoticed but was something that we really appreciated and we both thank you for that. There were various times while driving around listening to the radio on our honeymoon where we both turned to each other and said, Darrin played that at the wedding and there are some songs that will continue to remind us of that. On more than one occasion our friends and family have commented on your work and on how fun and entertaining you made the night, I would recommend you to anyone!!! Again thank you for your hard work not only on the Wedding day but beforehand and for the regular conversations we had.

Take care and thank you again

Many Thanks
Simon and Claire

 

We wanted to send a quick email and say THANK YOU! Our wedding was absolutely perfect. We had such a wonderful time. We just can't believe how lucky we are and we were overwhelmed with how kind and helpful you all were. The music was perfect. I had many people comment on how much they enjoyed it. You did a great job of representing us. We just can't say thank you enough. I will be sure to recommend your services in the future! Thank you again!

Very Sincerely,
Jennie and Alex Benshoof

 
Darrin,

I just wanted to thank you again for doing such a great job at our reception. I have been hearing stories from everyone about how the wedding would just be a big blur, everything seems to go wrong on the wedding day, and it is a lot of stress. I couldn't disagree more with how ours went. I think a big part of that had to do with having people like you involved that really knew what they were doing and helped make this all as painless as possible. Courtney and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of our wedding and reception and sincerely thank you for helping it to run so smoothly. Several people commented on how great they thought you did, so I passed along your information to them.

Again, thank you so much for helping make this a truly wonderful and unforgettable experience for the both of us.

Kevin

 

All I can say is "WOW". What an amazing night! We had people calling/e-mailing us so much over the past couple days expressing how much fun they had at the wedding. You did an AMAZING job! Ally and I thought you did so much to make the night so much fun and also flow so well. I am sure all of our friends nearing that marriage age will keep our wedding in mind when planning their wedding - and you will certainly be a our highest recommendation. I can't say enough; thank you!

Thanks again!
Jason & Ally

 
Hi Darrin,
Thank you so much for everything. Todd and I were truly impressed with your services - from the ceremony to the reception and even offering to bring us drinks! You were wonderful and definitely helped to make our wedding memorable. There isn't a thing that we would change. Again, thank you and know that we will be recommending you to others.

Sincerely,
Todd and Lauren Addison

 
I was so impressed by the whole experience! We did have an incredible time and so did our guests! I will continue to refer you to anyone I run into that may need your services. I think Kristin is awesome and has amazing energy and would love to work with her again! Thanks again for a great time!!!

Sincerely,
Stephane Gregory

 

Hi Darrin,
I'm glad to hear from you!
Chris and I were just talking about you, it was a hectic return back to work from our honeymoon and we were dying to get back to normal life and have some time to fully thank you. There is something we wanted to send you when we get it together.
Until then, we definitely wanted to thank you for everything. It was truly the most perfect day, even better than what we imagined and I got comments all night about what a great job you did! The best part for me, was that my parents danced! I have never, in my life, seen my parents dance, and that meant the world to me for everyone we love, including them to be enjoying themselves so much. I can't thank you enough for all your help before the wedding and everything you did that day to make our day so perfect. I will definitely miss working with you and I am trying to recommend every person I know to you so I can see you soon! :)

Until then, thanks again!
Tiffany

 

Darrin:
Mark and I wanted to send you a big thank you as well. We appreciate how much you took care of us. You really took the "thinking" and pressure off of us to remember to be in places at certain times. And of course the great tunes!!!
We will definitely keep you in mind for future needs, and have already passed your name on to a few friends who are getting married in the next year.

Thanks again-
Kattie

 

Darrin,
Thank you so much. The wedding was perfect and you did an awesome job. Everyone had a great time. I unfortunately (due to the open bar I am sure) missed you leaving (of course maybe I didn't but it's all a little hazy...lol), so I am sorry if I didn't get to say goodbye. We will also be sending a thank you in the mail to you as well.

Thank you,
Christine D. Warren

Hey Darrin,
Saturday night was awesome!!! Julie had a great time as did our guests. Julie said she has not had that much fun since our wedding.

Hi Darrin!
Thanks so much for everything you did at the wedding, I can't even tell you how many compliments we've received on you and your skills! Everyone had such an awesome time, and I think it went pretty considering we aren't the dancing type! Anyway, eternal thanks, it was the best night of our lives!

Darrin,
You have an amazing personality which made a world of difference in our wedding.
It's a huge challenge to get a crowd on the floor, especially on a Sunday during the day but you pulled it off and you were so accommodating.
You went above and beyond and we truly appreciate your hard work.

Warmest wishes,
John and Yimaira Duncan

Hello Darrin
Thank you for your awesome DJ and hosting skills in providing services for our wedding.
My guests had a fun time on the dance floor and it was especially fun to see my Dad out there doing the limbo.
Thank you for helping to keep us on track with the schedule of events and for letting my guests know what to expect as the events unfolded during the night.

You did a fabulous job. Thank you!
Kevin & Suzanne Koogle

 
Darrin,

We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding reception incredible. You really were awesome, entertaining and kept the crowd dancing not to mention covered my “missing garter” craziness so well! J Everyone thought you were great and I will absolutely recommend you to any of my friends looking for a DJ for any event in the future.

I appreciated how well you communicated with me during the entire reception so I knew what was going on, as it was so easy to get caught up with everything.

You kept everything flowing and organized that appeared effortless. We could not have asked for more.

Best Wishes to you always,
Katie & Stephen

 
Hello Darrin,

I want to thank you SO much for being a part of my wedding day. I cannot explain to you how much you helped to make my big day even more special. When you said you wanted Billy and I to feel like we were walking on air all night, you weren't kidding! Not only did you orchestrate everything during the reception (a feat all on it's own!) but you also provided the perfect atmosphere. Your music selections were so spot on! EXACTLY what Billy and I wanted. I got so many compliments about you...from family, friends, young and old. That's how you know you've done a great job. :) You were so professional and welcoming. Billy and I felt so comfortable around you, like you were an old friend! I am so happy that I chose you to be a part of our day. My day wouldn't have been what it was without you!

Love,
Evelyn Hawkins :)

 
Hi Darrin,

Everyone keeps telling us how impressed they were with the DJ, the music was a great mix, it wasn't too loud (even my grandpa was happy!), and we all had such a great time!! Thanks for always keeping a drink in my hand and the music flowing :-) You made our special day absolutely amazing, Billy and I were both so so happy with the way everything turned out!! You were absolutely right - I didn't need to worry about a thing! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!

- Michelle & Billy

 
Hey Darrin!!!!

I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding!! I love and cherished every moment!!! Thanks so much for making our day special, you are truly one amazing guy and DJ!!! I know that God has chosen the perfect job for you!!! Thanks so much!!!

Alex and Heather Shedd

 
Hi Darrin -

First of all- THANK you so much for everything. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the day and you really allowed that to happen. You were the best. We can only sing your praise!! It is unbelievable that the day is done. Everyone that we spoke to said that had an amazing time and we have even heard some comments of, "Best Wedding Ever". :0) The Piano Man song at the end really was fun we enjoyed toasting to everyone during that song. Thank you again for everything!!!!

Laura & Gavin

 
Hey Darrin,

Well, I can't thank you enough for being our DJ! We had a great time…we enjoyed every minute of our wedding and were so pleased with how everything turned out, despite having to move the ceremony inside. We've actually had quite a few people tell us the wedding was beautiful, and Nick and I are so thankful to you for being a big part of everything! I have to say when I read your very first email response to my inquiry about doing our wedding, I just had a very comfortable feeling knowing that you were going to take care of things for us…and you certainly did! Thank you again for everything, Darrin! Many blessings to you in the NEW YEAR!

Kim & Nick

 
Darrin!!!

Sorry took so long to write back! We just got home from our honeymoon!

Wanted to send you the BIGGEST thank you for being the BEST DJ we could have EVER had! You and everything else exceeded all of my dreams that night and I really can't than you enough! I had the best time ever and danced my ass off :) If we ever decide to have a another big party for some occasion, you will be the only person we will ever use!!!!! Keep being the awesome person you are! And again THANK YOU sooooo much!!!!!

Karli and Mike

 
Hey Darrin!!!

You don't need to thank us! We need to thank you!! You were absolutely wonderful and we really enjoyed working with you. You helped make our day more than we could ever imagine. We both had an amazing time and couldn't have asked for anything more! (well...maybe warmer weather...lol) We had no doubts that you were the perfect choice for us. You listen to your clients and really try to make their day all about them and their style. We both admire that and appreciate the time you spent with us to make sure that we would have a day we would never forget.

And Darrin, I (April) would like to personally thank you for spending time with me on the phone calming my nerves about the flow of the wedding. It was really nice to hear from someone who personally went through the same thing, and then has also been a part of many events there. Thank you. So incredibly much. :)

Thank you again Darrin!! And we will certainly refer you to our friends and family for future events. :)

Have a safe and Happy New Year!!!!! :)
Chris and April Collins (Fox)

 
Darrin,

Thank you so much for a wonderful reception. It wouldn't have been the same without you. The music was absolutely amazing the whole night. I could never peel myself away from the dance floor. My mom told me that she never went in to get cake because of that. She kept telling herself that she would leave after the current song was over but then the next song would play and she wanted to dance to that one too! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and you were a huge part of making it wonderful! Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
