Request more pricing, details and info from this vendor!When Mark Caravaggio launched DJ Charlie Clean ~ Custom Events, he knew he wanted to give his clients a truly unique experience – a DJ service that is meticulously tailored to each bride and grooms’ big day. When the team at The Ring interviewed past clients, many didn’t hesitate to put their stamp of approval on this company as well. We got feedback like, “DJ Charlie Clean was the best wedding decision we made” and “… [they are] the ONLY DJ company I recommend to my clients.”

From one-on-one planning sessions with Mark and interactive tools that allow you to capture critical wedding day details to stress-free all-inclusive DJ/Planning packages that can be tailored to your wedding day needs, Mark and his team strive to take the ‘above and beyond’ mantra to a new level. Let us tell you more…

Personally Speaking

After years in the corporate world, Mark knew he needed a change. And so, with a passion for music, Mark set out to create a premier DJ experience for clients from Toronto to Kitchener and beyond. Mark explains, “Ultimately, I realized my corporate life just couldn’t compare to the lifelong memories I was creating for couples and their guests and made the massive decision to leave my old life behind and dive head first into this amazing world of weddings.”

Mark made his business his full time focus and devoted his energy to getting the word out in the wedding community. As a result, DJ Charlie Clean ~ Custom Events grew to include several DJ/Planning professionals running about 100 weddings each year. They also have wonderful partnerships with local charities – providing DJ services for fundraisers at Canadian Cancer Society events, Bracelet of Hope, Michael House, The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington, Wyndham House, to name a few.

Danielle Langley and Kylie Peterson say their experience with Mark was incredible… from the first time they met until the end of their reception. Danielle remembers her wedding day, “Mark immediately got along with the band and became part of the celebration. He was a welcome addition who stayed professional while still mingling with guests and ensuring they got to hear the music they wanted. He is so upbeat and he just makes you feel at ease when you are around him… all of the guests commented on how great he was. I’ve never seen anything like it at any other wedding! I fully credit the entire night’s festivities to his ability to get a party started and keep it going. I don’t think this is something you can learn… Mark is just that guy who everyone immediately likes and wants to be around. He has the perfect DJ personality.”

After hundreds of weddings, Mark told The Ring what keeps him inspired, “My amazing couples! I am extremely privileged to have the opportunity to ‘help couples make life-long memories… one wedding at a time’. So knowing this, thriving to make each and every wedding a truly unique experience where the couple and guests understand that it was created especially for them… Well, that’s more than enough to keep me going every day!”

A few of our favourite things…

There really are countless reasons why couples (and The Ring!) love DJ Charlie Clean. Here are just a few…

1. Stress-free planning that goes above and beyond: DJ Charlie Clean provides their couples with everything they might need to help them plan their wedding, with a customized online planning tool that is available up until a week before the wedding day! With this service you’ll be able to find answers to some important wedding questions, it will challenge you to think outside the box, and, you’ll have access to additional documents for reference such as sample wedding day timelines and game ideas.

Says Mark, “Our focus on critical advanced planning aspects completely takes the stress off the couple. I don’t feel it’s appropriate to ask the couple to organize their own wedding… especially in most cases where it’s their first wedding!”

2. All inclusive packages to suit any wedding day: Mark’s philosophy is to provide one ‘all inclusive package’ for a truly all inclusive price, “everything that’s required for your wedding to be successful is absolutely included. We try to fit to everyone’s budget but never steer away from providing an incredible customer service experience. I feel that there’s no better value in the industry!”

3. It’s all about ‘you’: DJ Charlie Clean aims to give every couple a truly unique experience. Mark says this includes really listening to each couples’ wedding day wishes and working together to create a memorable day – from your perfect soundtrack to a seamless wedding day timeline. “Yes, we are professionals in our chosen line of work, but we would never tell you that something has to happen in a certain way. From a musical standpoint, we really listen to your desires and play exactly what you’re after, but also give you suggestions along the way in how we can help provide a unique musical experience that works well for you and your guests.”

Tanya Mazziotti says Mark worked with her to create a playlist that fit perfectly with her wedding day vision, “I think the best memory would have to be the actual reception itself. You’re always worried as a bride whether or not your guests will feel a bit anxious about getting up and dancing… but that didn’t even become an issue. Mark got everyone pumped right when dinner ended and had us dancing (and I know everyone says this but I’m not lying) literally until the last moment of the night! His attitude that night just kept a smile on everyone’s face and had everyone up and dancing the night away!”

William Hensley and Christina Crawley told The Ring about their favourite memory of DJ Charlie Clean on their wedding day, “During a torrential rainstorm the power supply cut out because our generator was flooded. The party nearly died but when power was restored Mark picked the perfect song and volume to get it started again. Our whole party erupted when his music came back on and it was one of the coolest experiences of the evening… and it wouldn’t have happened unless Mark seized the moment the way he did.”

Past Bride, Carrie says her mom helped her find DJ Charlie Clean and she couldn’t be happier with her choice, “My mom contacted a long list of DJ’s that she thought myself and my husband would enjoy… she chose DJ Charlie Clean. Her exact words to me were, ‘DJ Charlie Clean will be perfect for your wedding…he has a real honest passion for music and we had such a nice conversation on the phone. He was the only one that spent the extra time to explain what he offers.’ He won my mom over right away. When I met Mark, I absolutely agreed with her.”

Custom style to suit ‘you’

Whether you’re planning an intimate and elegant day, a big farm wedding or, something large and extravagant, the DJ Charlie Clean team aims to give you exactly what you want on your wedding day. “We work with our couples as a team to ensure that every wedding is truly unique… we don’t just turn up at the event and hope for the best with a standard timeline and playlist.”

Although DJ Charlie Clean is often hired for small to medium sized weddings, they can happily accommodate larger weddings as well. And while they work with all kinds of styles, personalities and budgets, Mark says DJ Charlie Clean tends to attract couples who have a unique music style (or have a major love of music), have special themes that could incorporate musical themes into the vibe of their big day, and, above all, they don’t want a ‘typical’ wedding dance floor “full of cheesy anthems”. DJ Charlie Clean brides and grooms tend to want a fun, personable wedding soundtrack with cool DJs who love their music and completely understand that the event is not at all about them, but about the couple and their guests.

The words thank you does not begin to describe how grateful we are that we found DJ Charlie Clean (aka Mark) and that he was able to DJ our wedding this past August. During the initial planning stages we thought we would forgo booking a DJ until we realized how much work was really involved. We quickly saw that a good DJ was a crucial part in not only our guests enjoying themselves, but in making sure the day ran smoothly. We met with a few DJs, but as soon as we met Mark, we knew he was the one! He instantly made us feel comfortable and at ease. He was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and truly listened to what we wanted. He really made the process seamless and fun, from the planning stages all the way to the actual day. The online portal provided was user-friendly and a life saver when it came to planning timelines and selecting music. His prompt responses to our calls and emails was very appreciated especially in the weeks leading up to the big day. This definitely lowered our stress levels! As for his DJ skills, they were FANTASTIC!! He played our favourite songs and also read our guests to see what music would keep them dancing, and that they did! The dance floor was always busy, he even had guests dancing that I've never seen dance before! Truly amazing! If we ever need DJ services again we will definitely call DJ Charlie Clean and we would not hesitate to recommend him to everyone we know. Thank you Mark from the bottom of our hearts!

Mark aka, DJ Charlie Clean, not only created a fantastic atmosphere with music but also MC'd our event. The online tools that he provided us, was an asset to making our ceremony/reception perfect and original. I know I utilized the "Do Not Play" List.... No more Mamboo #5!!! During the planning process, he made it clear that he was always available to help with any questions or concerns. Mark honestly felt like a friend on the guest list. I hope to see more reviews in the future of his service, I know you won't regret hiring him.

Mark and the entire 'DJ Charlie Clean' team is incredible! We booked DJ Charlie Clean for our October 18, 2014 wedding in Waterloo. We had Marlon for our day, and can't say enough good things about him. We were running a little behind schedule (okay, a lot), and through working with our MC; the guests had no idea, and things ran very smoothly! Mark was great about providing a timeline and information to our venue, DJ, videographer, photographer, and MC's alike. They all truly appreciated this, and said not many DJ's take the time to do so. Mark was incredible to work with during the planning process. The online portal for choosing music, creating a timeline, and making requests is super simple to use and makes it easy to customize and plan your day beginning with the ceremony. We were able to add some songs to our 'do not play' list, and create a list of 'must play' based on the music requested by our guests via their RSVP cards. Marlon played a great variety of songs and we had many compliments on what a great DJ we chose. I am personally not a dancer, but the dance floor was packed the entire night. He knew what to play, and when to play it to keep the party going! Thank you to DJ Charlie Clean; Mark and Marlon, for helping us in making a night full of memories 🙂

We got married on August 23 , and can honesty say that our Wedding day would not have been as perfect as it was without Mark , and Dj Charlie Clean ! From day one , everything was so easy and straight forward ! Mark was always there to answer any questions, and always got back to us almost immediately ! On the day of the wedding , he ran the music for the whole ceremony and reception and we could not have asked for anything better! I have never met a Dj that can get every single person on the dance floor with just the first song !! ..... And keep them there all night ! I've had so many compliments on how amazing our Dj was , even from an uncle who claims he " never , ever " dances ! He ended up being on the dance floor all night long because of the amazing music! I would recommend to absolutely anyone , and will defenatly be using him again in the future! Thanks so much Mark for everything.... You deserve every little bit of credit !!

Mark is amazing! We had him do our wedding on Sept 27, 2014 in Niagara Falls. He was an awesome MC. The music was great and his pre planning tools and customer service made everything go off without a hitch! Mark was amazing during the entire planning process! The online planning website made it easy for us to customize and plan out our reception. With must play and customized request lists it allowed us to chose the musics we knew our guests would enjoy. The timeline tool made it easy for us to plan a smooth flowing reception - Mark even forwarded this to our venue which helped ensure everyone was on the same page! Mark help us with a surprise live remix of 5 songs for our Father daughter dance that was the hit of the night! I am still getting messages about how great everyone thought that was! It was really a special moment for my dad and I and entertaining for our guests! Mark played a great mix and variety of music and kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night! Thank you Mark for making our wedding reception a dream come true! 🙂

We used DJ Charlie Clean aka Mark, for our wedding on August 8th, 2014. When first meeting Mark for our original meet & greet I was overwhelmed on how organized and prepared he was. Being the super over organized, O.T.T. bride myself, I knew it was a match once I saw his online spreadsheet tools, and just hearing his knowledge with every type of music. Throughout the ENTIRE planning process Mark was there by our sides to help in any way he could. Sending us lots of possible ideas for different/unique songs to listen to. From the spreadsheets, icon help tools, phone calls, emails, he was very reliable throughout the entire process!! Getting married is an extremely special day between any two people. Creating that special atmosphere with your favorite music and songs that all your guests will enjoy, isn't an easy task. Mark creates endless tools making sure every piece of the puzzle is set in place for the big day. Not to mention he provides beautiful up lighting to match your decor. He is an outstanding guy to have at any party. Thank you once again Mark for making our day so special and memorable! You drop sick beats

We used DJ Charlie Clean for our May 31 wedding and we were nothing short of blown away by the service we received both leading up to, and on the day of, our wedding. We had originally booked another DJ company, and after they DJ'd our Stag and Doe, decided we were less than impressed with their services. We were in touch with Mark very shortly after and, like I said, were blown away with his professionalism and expertise. Our dancefloor was packed all night long, and the DJ played exactly what we had requested (through the incredible planning package DJ Charlie Clean offers.) In fact, the banquet managers at the venue said that they hadn't seen the dancefloor that packed for so long in years! The music was great, the service was outstanding. We wish we could have another wedding just to have the party again - and DJ Charlie Clean was an integral part of that party! I would reccomend his services 110%. There are lots of DJ's in the area, many who claim to be the best. Let me tell you, there is no one better than the man you'll find here.

Dj Charlie Clean was amazing! Had my guests out of their seats dancing, had them involved in games and having guests laugh and enjoying themselves the whole night. My biggest fear of my wedding was not having an amazing DJ as my friends and family are music and dancing lovers. I could not have asked for a better DJ (steve) then this company I was so happy and danced the night away in my wedding dress with all my friends and family, you will not regret your choice by going with this company, I have had compliment after compliment about the DJ, Amazing, made our day/night even more perfect!

We used DJ Charlie Clean for our stag and doe on May 24th and we also used them on our wedding day on July 26th. We knew nothing about them, we were just handed their business card from a banquet hall. Upon filling out our 'quote request' from their informative webpage, it seemed as though Mark had called us back within minutes. Our first phone conversation was 1/2hr. I felt like I was talking to a lifelong buddy. Shorty thereafter, we met up with him at a coffee shop very conveniently located to our house. Immediately, his personality was glowing, not in an obnoxious 'I want your money' way but in a way that said "I want to be the lucky guy you choose to put the reels on the steel for the most important day of your life." He gets visions of your visions and explains how he will make them a reality. We never had Mark for our stag and doe but we had Marlon. If DJ Charlie Clean offers you Marlon at your event, say no if you hate fun. He was hilarious and rocked all night. Every guest loved him. We had an instant bond with him and his stellar personality. For our wedding, Mark was our DJ. This man was born for this job. He's probably a whopping 5'2" tall, but his 11'8" heart has his career tattooed on it. It says " I will do anything in my power to make your day a dream come true." He doesn't miss a phone call, email, or text that isn't returned to you in a very reasonable time frame. Not only is he working for you, he becomes your friend. A true friend too. One you know you can look to when wedding stress takes over and one that can answer questions or give opinions on other vendors. He operates his events off this DJ Intelligence web page. It blew me out of the water. I won't elaborate because I can't do it justice. Just imagine Jesus inviting you over for supper and you're the 13 disciple and you're eating BBQ ribs and lobster bisque. We both had an extreme addiction for social media (Facebook) and it made the whole process that much more fun. For the short time he knew Dacia and I, he knew us very well, knew our personalities and gelled with our wild sense of humours. Although our wedding is over, Mark will always have my friendship, he will always be thought of as the best DJ I have ever encountered, he will always be recommended to anybody I know that needs a DJ. I am already trying to find a reason to need a DJ just to hire him again. Honestly, he could make Siskel and Eberts thumbs re-rise. Mark, thank you so much for all you did right from our first phone call. You should be a role model to all aspiring DJ's who have been collecting cd's after getting ripped of from Columbia House since 1994

Mark: Thank-you so much for all of your efforts in making our night so special. Julie and I appreciate all of your time and patience with us throughout the process. You made everything very simple and straightforward. Loved how you were so professional with us, but at the same time it felt like I was chatting with an old pal that I had known for years. Uplighting was fantastic and the music was spot-on. Thanks for everything Mark. Fantastic work! Cheers buddy!! June 21/2014
