We hired 21st Century to DJ our wedding on the recommendation of our venue and we could not have been any more pleased with how everything turned out. From talking with the owner Brian on the phone, working out details (they made making a timeline so easy for a stressed out bride) to working with our DJ, Joey, the day of, everything was an absolute joy. We were able to pick all of the songs for our ceremony and Joey worked them in just right, including a very special recording of my grandmother. The sound quality was fantastic! The cocktail hour, dinner and dancing went off without a hitch. I have never seen a DJ who was so good at making sure the event was running so smoothly. Having been to a number of friend's weddings in the past year, I can confidently say that Joey is the best around. I would hire 21st Century again in a heartbeat :)

The wedding went very well. Everyone had a good time. Joey is very cool and the equipment was awesome. Joey’s attire fitted in just perfectly, he looked comfortable and his relaxed nature fit with the people there.

He arrived at the event (which was 3 hours away) nice and early, ended up spending 9 hours there with setup and breakdown.

The music for the wedding was a perfect touch. We really loved the intro song and the exit song was great. The toasts were perfect volume and there was zero feedback. Very nice, first class.

Joey was able to play really good music for people to dance to. Many people requested a list of songs he ended up playing. That is a good sign.

I really liked seeing him out with the little kids teaching them to dance to a song I never hear of before, found out it was the Cha-Cha Slide. The little ones were doing great with his instruction! Very cute. Pretty cool.

It was a great night. All of us had fun and everyone loved the music; especially the children, they absolutely loved it! Many people said the event was first class and many said it was the best wedding they had been to.

The DJ makes all of the difference in any event. I have seen so many train wrecks, but after meeting Joey and Brian, I knew it would be good, but didn't know it would be that good! I know now why they earn all those stars.

I would definitely like Joey to do our next event. I am lucky to have found 21st Century Sounds!

Brian and his staff made sure we had the best sound quality and entertainment throughout our wedding night. He was so accommodating to our song selections, and he brainstormed ideas which were so unique and memorable. Brian is very professional and truly cares about the services of his business. He is also very organized. He created a timeline of music to be played at specific moments of the night, which was so awesome because I never felt lost in my planning. He will make everything right!

I do have to mention something that most people probably do not know about his DJ services:

*Brian and his team also sets up lighting and sets the ambience for the evening. You cannot beat his prices and it was beautiful! I would highly recommend all of his packages that includes lighting*

I recommend everyone to use 21 century sounds for their DJ entertainment. The music was smooth, and transitioned nicely and Brian really read the crowd so everyone was dancing! I could not be more pleased and I'm very thankful that my husband and I were refered to use his services.

Alicia, you & Anthony were so pleasant to work with all the way from our 1st meeting on through to the last dance. And seeing multiple generations of both your families out on the dance floor enjoying our music is the true magic in what we do. Thank you for sharing your appeeciation!

Brian (the owner) was so easy to work with at 21 Century Sound! He was quick to respond to emails, phone calls etc. And always sent us an updated timeline quickly after we spoke. DJ Aaron was WONDERFUL! He checked in with us multiple times during our wedding, let us know where we were at and was always willing to move things around when we were not quite ready for our next "event". He even took pictures and posted them online for us to see! Aaron had EVERYONE on the dance floor of my 190 person wedding- all night! We still had about 50 people dancing at our last song. When we made requests to play certain songs he said no problem give me a song or two to get the genre switched (so we didn't go from 1960's to rap in one song) I would highly recommend 21 Century Sound very professional!

Cannot say enough good things about our experience with Brian Fitzsimmons from 21st Century Sounds. Brian and his assistant, Johnathan were organized, had great equipment but were also so professional and kept the party going. Brian did a great job with reviewing with my daughter and myself to make sure he played all of our favorites. He made great suggestions and everything was perfect.

I am so glad we rented a large dance floor because Brian kept the dance floor jumping all night long. We highly recommend 21st Century sound for your next event. Our friends and family are referring to our daughter's wedding as the best wedding of 2015 and even the best wedding of this decade. Thank you, Brian!!

Brian (Owner) and Joey (DJ) are just wonderful! So easy to work with, and very aware of how important the details are. They helped us think of all of the things we didn't know we didn't know, and the wedding went off without a hitch.

They provided a list of the Top 200 requested songs for our convenience, and were more than happy to use our custom list for the reception.

Our guests celebrated and danced until 1:00 am! Joey did a great job at getting the guests' attention for the traditional events (cutting cake, etc.) and we couldn't be happier with our decision to go with 21st Century Sounds.

Go with these guys - you will be glad you did!!

The truth is, we were already fairly certain who we wanted our DJ to be when we started looking for our wedding. My mom actually went to high school with Brian and used his DJ company, 21st Century Sounds to play at a surprise birthday party for my dad many years ago. We had a great time then, so we knew they were amazing. What we didn't know was that, since then, he had added several talented people to his team. Arren, the DJ we had for our wedding, was one of those talented people.
Arren was incredible. He went above and beyond my expectations for a DJ. He didn't just play great songs or put together fun playlists. He was also actively involved in making sure everyone was having a great time. He came by half way through and asked me what I thought about the songs, volume etc to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. I later learned he also checked in with my groom, his parents, my parents and the maid of honor and best man to get more opinions and make changes accordingly. He kept us on time (according to the timeline we created with Brian in a meeting), and having fun throughout the entire reception. A month and a half later we're still having guests rave about him and his ability to keep people on the dance floor!
When surprises came up, such as one of the groomsmen putting me and my husband up in chairs (Jewish wedding style), he ran with it. When a bridesmaid got overheated and need to leave, he was there (apparently he also works in the ER part time?) to make sure she was ok and send her to get treated accordingly. When things got a little rowdy after we left, he handled it.
If I could give him ten stars in a review, I absolutely would. He, and 21st Century Sounds, were that good.
Thanks Arren and Brian!

If it were possible to give Brian 10 stars we absolutely would!! My husband and I were so pleased with Brian and his amazing job as our wedding DJ, we can't say it enough. From the first time we met with Brian, we instantly appreciated his friendly, professional, and knowledgable demeanor. My husband and I love music, and knew that we needed a DJ who could make our wedding fun and memorable, so as soon as Brian shared his knowledge and ideas for our wedding day, we knew we had found our DJ. The planning process was stress free and fun. Brian always responded promptly to questions, ideas, etc. and while we had many ideas of our own Brian made many great suggestions that we greatly appreciated and utilized.

On the day of the wedding, Brian was not only the best DJ we could have chosen, he essentially became our "point man" and went above and beyond his duties!! He ran the timing of toasts, dinner, special moments, such as bouquet toss, cake cutting etc. Our wedding would not have been the special day it was without Brian. The seamless and professional manner in which he was able to make the evening flow, while leaving nothing for my husband or I to stress about, means the world to us. Brian truly made our wedding the amazing and wonderful celebration we wanted and he did it all with such friendly awesomeness! Brian is the best!!!

The first contact we had with Brian and 21st Century Sounds was very professional and organized. Brian was perfect for keeping us on track throughout the planning process without being pushy. He came out to visit the site and was very flexible and made us feel at ease with how he would setup and how the flow would work.

On the day of our wedding Brian and Jonathan showed up right on time and with such a fun and kind attitude. We had to do some small troubleshooting with the power (outdoor wedding) but Brian never worried and adapted without hesitation. Our guests all commented on how smooth everything went, the transitions were easy and not rushed and we credit this largely to Brian's work. The music was a perfect mix of older classics and newer upbeat songs with just enough slow dances.

-True professional in every sense of the word.
-EXCELLENT communication.
-Customizes the experiences for the couple and what they envision, while steering you away from trouble.
-Positive energy that rubs off on everyone present.
