Having Dj Canal as our Dj for our destination wedding in Jamaica December 2019 was the best decision we could’ve made. He was professional, personable, and made sure all selections were customizable. We all had such a wonderful time and still talk about the wedding party of the decade mainly due to Dj Canal’s amazing services! He has a client for a lifetime!
