We hired The Rev for our August 2018 wedding in Revelstoke and what a great decision that was! Honestly, everything about their work was perfect. I originally contacted Al for DJ services but after chatting with him about the live music option, we opted for both. Al and Steve were amazing. We had a packed dance floor until the very end of the night. I can’t count how many of our guests commented on how wonderful the music was. The live music really made the night special. The Rev also did a flawless job with the ceremony. It was so nice to be able to show up right before the ceremony and everything was ready. Steve helped give us cues as to when to start walking down the aisle and they have a great hands-free microphone so we could say our vows without having to awkwardly pass a microphone back and forth. We really can’t say enough great things about The Rev! 100% recommend them.
THESE GUYS ROCK! I was at a wedding last weekend and these two killed it. Their music selection was perfectly suited to the mood and setting, and sounded great. They are very talented musicians. Later on as DJs they played requests and kept the dance floor going all night. They even gave me some AA batteries when my camera flash died. 10/10 would recommend them for any event!
Where do I even start... We got married at RMR in revelstoke in September, and these guys absolutely blew it out of the water. When I was looking for music services, I didnt think I wanted live music, but I am extremely thankful that Al talked me into it, because at this point I couldnt picture our reception any other way. The live music set they did through the latter part of dinner was pulled off expertly, working on the fly with our first time MC and making it look easy. Even before dinner was over, people started moving over to the dancefloor; they were that good. After a few encores as demanded by the crowd, the transitioned into a fantastic DJ set that kept everyone there till the end. We also had them provide music and equipment for our ceremony, perfect setup well ahead of time, and they had a microphone on a stand that picked up our voices clearly without having to be passed around. Couldnt recommend more!
We had The Rev as the entertainment for our wedding a few weeks ago. They were absolutely amazing! They played live for over six hours and had everybody on the dance floor. Weeks after the wedding, our guests are still talking about how incredible the entertainment was. We would use The Rev again in a heartbeat!!
If you are searching for entertainment options in Revelstoke, definitely go with the REV! We booked Al and Steve to perform and DJ at our outdoor wedding in June. They made the planning process so smooth by quickly responding to all our questions and accommodating every request. These guys are truly professional and play with passion that keeps the dance floor rocking all night! All of our guests loved the vibe the REV provided for us, from afternoon until early morning. We are so happy that we met and Al and Steve and we definitely recommend the REV for any music need. -Colin & Jess
Hiring The Rev turned out to be one of the best decisions we made in planning our wedding at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Leading up to the day, Al was extremely helpful in coordinating logistics and offering both venue-specific and general advice. On the day itself, Steve and Al flawlessly took care of sound for the ceremony, entertained our guests leading up to and during dinner, and then rocked the dance floor late into the night. They read the crowd like pros and played a variety of music that had all generations up and dancing. Can’t recommend them enough!
Al and Steve were absolutely amazing! I had originally contacted Al about a DJ service for our upcoming wedding. He was quick to respond and told me everything I needed to know about his services and I was instantly sold on who was going to DJ our wedding. He also brought up the possibility of Live music with Steve. I was skeptical at first as I had never heard them perform but Al's confidence in how he could play to the crowd and bring up the mood of the party told my gut that I needed to go with the live music portion as well. Al couldn't have been more right, Him and Steve made this party that much more special for us. My friends and relatives could not stop raving the next day about how great these guys were. Every song that was played was perfect and they knew how to cater to the crowd. I would highly recommend Al and Steve to my friends, family and anybody that is looking to have a wedding or any type of event that requires a DJ. Thank you so much Al and Steve, we all had a great time and I greatly appreciate all you have done!
Rev Entertainment came recommended to us from multiple people and boy did they live up to the hype. Steve (our DJ) was super professional and provided great audio/visual support for the ceremony, reception, and for multiple videos played throughout the evening. We provided a songlist to outline the 'vibe' of the what we were looking for and they nailed it. The whole team was very professional and courteous both in person and over email/phone. The dance floor was packed all night, can't thank them enough. Cheers, Reid + Taylor.
These guys are totally amazing! The live music is absolutely great. They played at our wedding from the reception all the way through till the very end. These guys really know how to read a crowd and choose the best songs! Highly recommend for any event!
The Rev was an AMAZING live band and DJ service!!!! They were great to work with - quick to respond to emails and very helpful with song suggestions! They provided the music for our ceremony and reception and absolutely nailed it! They were amazing! They had the dance floor PACKED ALLLL night!!! Everyone loved it. It was so much fun!!! And I didn't have to provide them with a song list or anything! They just knew what to play to please the crowd! We loved their music and we highly recommend them to everyone!!! Thank you guys for the amazing wedding party!!!! You guys rocked it!!!!
Steve and Al went above and beyond for our wedding. They worked through every detail, were extremely professional and were a pleasure to work with. Steve provided DJ services for the ceremony and reception, and it was flawless. We would recommend The Rev to anyone! Steve & Carolyn
Came to Revelstoke for our nieces wedding. Have to say these guys are awesome. Danced all night. Better than canned music for sure.
We hired these guys for our wedding ceremony and reception and it was the best decision we made in regards to wedding planning. They were professional and incredibly talented. Our guests were blown away by them and we received amazing reviews from those who attended the wedding. We would recommend them to anyone! Cheers, Sheenagh & Tanner
We had the pleasure of have The guys at Rev do the McIng, "Djing" and live music playing! They were amazing and the live music was awesome. Guests are still raving about their talent!
The Rev was a fantastic part of our wedding! I e-mailed back and forth with Al for at least a year before the wedding and he was more then accommodating, he always offered valid, honest, and awesome ideas. We had a lot of family who wanted to sing and play guitar at the wedding and Al & Steve were extremely willing to let them play and they joined in with them as well. We are very happy with our choice to hire The Rev, and I would most definitely hire them again! I would recommend the Rev to anyone, they truly made our day more special with their live performance, and Al's DJ skills kept the crowd dancing all night long!
We could not have had a more positive experience with Al and Steve! They were a pleasure to deal with when it came to sorting out logistics, and that was just the start. We were torn as to whether we should hire live musicians or a D.J., as both have uniquely positive qualities when it comes to wedding entertainment. To say that Al and Steve successfully brought together the best of both worlds is an understatement. As live musicians their sound is much more full and rounded than one would expect from two players. Their personalities and stage presence were a compliment to the on-point vocals and remarkable musicianship. We ended up delaying our first dances by quite a while because they needed to set up the D.J. equipment and we dreaded having to ask them to stop playing, they were that good! Throughout their live music and D.J. sets, there's an uncanny ability on their part to read the crowd and set exactly the right mood all evening. Thank you so much, Al and Steve, for providing us with an amazing wedding entertainment experience!
Al & Steve not only entertain and involve the audience/crowd, they understand the dynamic. Like any event, their is a finesse to how the order of things go. Both Gents understood mood lighting, ambient background, slower melodies, and hot songs and knew when and where they were appropriate, which can be crucial! Alan & Steve were at the Ceremony & Reception before everyone else setting up, and ready to go. When we walked into the reception, they were already executing their game plan and it was well thought out and exactly what we needed! We thought we would use canned music, that would have been a huge mistake and a disappointment to our guests. They kept it "alive"!! I can't express how thrilled my wife & I were with The Rev and Although I don't plan to have another wedding, I would certainly hire them for any other event I may put on. Highly recommend them, you will not be disappointed and they will make your event or big day that much more magical!
When we were unsuccessful in finding a local DJ for our wedding at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort this past August, we contacted Al from the Rev. Al was an absolute a pleasure to work with. After an initial consult over the phone, Al let us know he would be up for the challenge of DJ'ing his first Kicking Horse wedding. We had frequent contact with Al over the months leading up to the wedding, and he kept us on track ensuring we had picked all of our ceremony/first dance songs. Al (and his lovely wife Cailleih) kept the dance floor packed for the entire evening, followed by our guests chants for "one more song!" at the end of the night . We would highly recommend Al to anyone looking for a great DJ for their upcoming event. Warren & Mya
In searching for a DJ for our wedding in Revelstoke, Al Laidlaw came highly recommended by a number of people and he did not disappoint! He's professional, knowledgeable and even met us at the venue in advance of our event to go over logistics and details. He exceeded all of our expectations! Al’s light and sound setup is top-notch. He played all of our song requests AND most importantly he was able to read the crowd with his own selections to keep the dance floor packed all night long! He is a fun and personable guy and you really get a sense of his passion for this type of work. Thank you Al for helping making our special day so memorable. Cheers! Melissa & Chris
