DJ MARK MACTAGGART
DJ Mark MacTaggart is not only one of our talented entertainers here at FCW, but he is also our technology and studio expert. Mark is a graduate from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, graduating with a degree in Music Production & Engineering. Working full-time out of his custom production studio, Mark has his music placed on 50+ major TV shows and advertisting (“Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, “Million Dollar Listing”, "Catfish", "Wicked Tuna", and many more!). His impressive resume in combination with his gift of having a “musicians ear” creates a one-of-a-kind product for his clients. With minimal chatter on the microphone, his primary focus is your crowd and a cutting edge music selection. Mark ‘s wife, Jill Mac, is one of FCW’s Photographer’s; creating a dynamic husband and wife team!
My sister used First Class Weddings for DJ services at her wedding, so even before booking I knew that this company was reliable, professional, and able to keep the party going without aggressively grabbing everyone's attention. From the initial date and quote request, everyone I talked to at FCW was responsive and helpful. Based on their website videos, we chose Mark as our DJ. During our first phone call we discussed that it was important that we find a way to get the older people onto the dance floor, but keep the music current and fun for our friends and younger cousins. Mark definitely delivered! The dance floor was packed the whole night. Family members who normally sit during weddings even went out for the majority of the night - it was perfect! During the final busy week before the wedding, we went over final details and he reassured us that he would keep the energy high. He was also very good at getting all of the details correct - timing, intros, and special song requests were all honored. To us, music is a key component to creating great memories at a wedding. If we had to do it over again, we would choose Mark and FCW every time.
Mark MacTaggart was our day of MC. We had been to a couple wedding with Mark DJing, so we knew what to expect. He was very professional and made the whole process easy. Mark was very prompt and was set up early. He talked to our officiant and walked him through the sound system before the ceremony so there would be no surprises. We were worried with a Sunday afternoon wedding people wouldn’t feel like dancing too much at the reception. Boy were we wrong. Mark killed it. The dance floor was jumping the entire afternoon. Mark knows how to read a crowd and kept everyone dancing the whole reception. We cannot recommend working with Mark and the whole team at FCW highly enough.
We chose Mark M. as our DJ and he was awesome! He spoke with us in advance to make sure all of the details were in place and provided suggestions and advice for music choices or how things could flow better during both our ceremony and reception. Mark was professional but also had a great personality that worked well with others, including our coordinator, to ensure things went flawlessly throughout the night. He remembered every little detail we spoke about and did a wonderful job reading the crowd so that music flowed perfectly all night! I don’t know how many of our guests came up to us throughout the night and afterwards saying how much they loved him, and we couldn’t agree more! We highly recommend Mark M. and First Class Weddings!!
