INFO FOR DJ

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
My DJ style could be described as reserved or understated. I don't use gimmicks, games or costumes. I play great music & help create (or facilitate) a fun reception that feels spontaneous & natural.

No Limit
What is your usual attire?
I dress formally in either a tuxedo or business suit.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I consider acquiring song selections my responsibility and often go to great lengths to "complete" a clients play list. I also don't put limits on song requests and offer tools that make the selection process easy.
How many other DJs do you work with?
There are 2 djs at 5 Star Events. You are guaranteed to have the dj you select at your reception, barring catastrophe.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?

Of course. We encourage it.

We cannot express enough what a wonderful job Dave did as the DJ at our wedding! From the very start of the planning process, he was responsive and helpful in insuring that our wedding went exactly as we wanted. He made sure to play exactly the types of music that we desired and to avoid the things we asked him not to play. Our dance floor was full all night thanks to Dave's perceptive DJ skills. He also provided the uplighting for our reception and did a great job transitioning from dinner to dancing. He was always professional and made sure that the night was all about us - not him. He did an excellent job MC-ing and stuck to the plan we came up with together prior to the event. The price was very reasonable and definitely worth every penny!!

Greg Hodges is my hero! Upon our first phone meeting, I knew he would be wonderful to work with on my Jewish wedding with Argentine tango, showtunes, French music, jazz and musical theatre, and Michael Jackson needs. As music is so important in my life, I had many specific requests. Everyone LOVED the music from the ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception. Besides having an extensive library of music, Greg and I shared music files via Dropbox for ceremony Jewish songs, tangos, etc. He was a delight to meet in person, and his online system of requests/organization was easy to use. When my computer became sick, he was a saint in tracking down songs that did not properly save on the website. I was able to add special notes such as dedications, or to specify the song for my cake cutting, walking down the isle, etc. Greg is extremely warm, personable, and truly listened to my requests (there were many!). I recommend Greg with heartfelt gratitude for the bride who wants a lot of in put to the bride that wants the DJ to have plenty of creative freedom.

Greg was a dream come true, Planning the music for your wedding can be tricky, where do you start ? But he was a god send! The online client dashboard was so easy and helpful ! You can add songs you need to hear, and don't want to hear ! It is a helpful tool to help you put down all the needed information for you and your DJ. When planning our wedding music , I had about 75 % picked out but was still having a hard time with some of it. After speaking to Greg he completely put me at ease, he made incredible suggestions and even came up with a mash up of songs for my father/daughter dance. He also sent me several suggestions on ceremony music, apps to look at on my Iphone and websites with lists of cake cutting songs, recessional and processional songs. Everything went so smooth and effortless, our venue was a bit different where we got married in one area, then had him move to a different area for cocktail area, again for dinner and once more for the dancing / cake cutting. He moved quickly and kept the party going ! He is the only person I would recommend to do your special day !

To start I cannot thank Dave enough for an absolutely phenomenal job not only providing the music and MC'ing for our wedding but truly supporting us throughout the whole process. 5 Star Events, and specifically Dave Hodges provided the music for our August 15th wedding and every element was flawless. My husband and I knew in the end one of our main goals of the wedding was we wanted every guest to have a great time, and boy did they! We had a packed dance floor, and every guest felt comfortable coming up to dance because of the great flow of music Dave made sure we had. My now father in law had such a great time, and danced so much, his knees are still recovering! Dave is incredibly personable and willing to help out with anything or answer any question from the moment you meet him till beyond your wedding. We cannot wait for another friend or family member to get married, simply to recommend 5 Star Events!

We used 5 Star Events to provide the music for our wedding on Saturday, August 9, 2014. From the first day I met David to the last song played, he was a complete professional. He and his brother were all ways available to answer a question or to run a suggestion by. Their website was super easy to use and their database is impressive. We had several special requests for songs and David never failed to find exactly what we were looking for. We even had a last minute request the morning of our wedding and David found the song and it was used during our ceremony. Once the music started the dance floor was hopping. There was never a lull in the dancing. The music was spot on and everyone said how much fun they had and the music was the best. They also provided uplighting for the reception area. It was the perfect touch to make the room come to life. If I ever have another event that calls for a DJ, I will not hesitate to call 5 Star Events.

Greg, owner of 5 Star Events, is THE BEST DJ and lighting expert! He did the lighting and DJing for our outdoor wedding in Boston under the New England Aquarium's harbor-side tent. Greg's timing, reliability, taste, and professionalism is phenomenal. If he's available, book him immediately!

First, Greg's DJing: Classy, well-timed, and thoroughly enjoyable. He kept an eye on the clock and worked as a partner to help my husband and I keep things moving for our guests. He timed all of our special dance songs perfectly. His equipment was the best so that everyone could clearly hear all of the touching speeches. People who NEVER dance were up on the dance floor all night having a blast. The music was the perfect volume and the pace was great. As my dad always says, a bad DJ can ruin an entire wedding. Go with Greg and you can relax knowing you've got a passionate expert doing his absolute best to make your wedding perfect.

Now about Greg's lighting: Enchanting, visionary, and flawless. Greg's creative lighting set-up made our reception space stunning! Our wedding theme was "underwater" since we were at the Aquarium. He totally understood what we were going for. He took a drab, stark, and oversized tent and turned it into a magical under-the-sea experience! He used shifting uplights to give the impression of shimmering water. The colored lanterns he hung were a perfect mix of blues and looked enchanting floating over our heads. It's quite a challenge for vendors to match the vision that brides have in their heads. Greg's lighting absolutely EXCEEDED my expectations. All of my memories of our reception are glamoured by his exceptional work.

I just can't say enough about how satisfied we all are with Greg. He was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish! Invest in Greg because his work will brighten the memories of your wedding for years to come.

What can I say about DJ Greg that hasn't been said in 100+ 5 star reviews already? If I could give him 6 stars I would....we were planning our Boston wedding from Chicago and Greg did everything he could to make the process as easy as possible. After only a few phone calls he seemed to know exactly what we wanted and delivered every time. From taking small cuts of different songs and streamlining them perfectly for our introduction to just keeping the dance floor packed all night, DJ Greg was perfect. He also provided the uplighting and made the room look amazing, changing the colors as the night, and party, grew crazier! I can't even count how many of our guests said he was the best DJ they'd ever seen and how amazing the room looked. 6 stars for DJ Greg!

The most important thing to me at my wedding was music, and Greg delivered! The dance floor was packed before dinner was ever served! He kept the dance floor packed all night long! Greg was very professional through the entire planning process and he was always willing to assist with anything. I found his online catalogue of music to be a great tool in the planning process.

Greg is not a flashy DJ, he only spoke during the introductions. If you want flashy this isn't the right fit for you, but if you want a dance party, this is your DJ!

My only criticisms would be a lack of slow songs (I wanted at least a few through the night) and he forgot to do the anniversary song that we had planned for. I remembered too late in the night to bring this to his attention. Even with these things I would still hire him in a heart beat! We have heard from so many people that our wedding was the best they have ever been to and that is certainly in large part to Greg!

We loved DJ Dave! He was the perfect DJ for our backyard wedding, playing all the songs we requested off our shared Spotify playlists and adding his own flair. We received great compliments from our guests afterwards, the best one being "We liked him. He didn't talk the whole time". Dave just kept the party going with the right beats at the right time.

We would definitely recommend him and use 5-star events again!
