I will keep this short and simple: 74 Events is exceptional, Gary Hoffmann is great, and our DJ Sean Marquand is amazing.

The company is well run, well organized and professional. Gary makes things streamlined and easy. Sean is a lovely man with a great talent for his craft and makes his portion of the wedding about the music and not about him, which I think is a testament to his focus on spinning as art (or skill or performance, insert word you most prefer). He is more than just lining up some tracks. He incorporates the music with different portion of the evening well and takes cues from the couple and the people in attendance, he stays away from corny nonsense, he plays tracks people love and at the right times. We had a crowd full of professional dancers and they tore it up and couldn't have been happier, we also had a ton of dorky doctors who also loved it and were dancing all night. Sean was smooth transitioning between segments, didn't say a single word more than necessary to get the job done. He was efficient and excellent.

I can't imagine any reason to not use these guys. It would be silly.

We worked with DJ Gaza (Gary Hoffman) and DJ Mandy. We absolutely loved Mandy!!! She really knew how to keep the crowd on the dance floor, which was impressive since our guests ranged from 25 to 80 years old! In fact, the reception was going so well that my husband and I asked if we could extend the party! Mandy was very agreeable to it and continued to keep everyone dancing until the end of the very last song. She was very responsive to all correspondence and arrived at the venue well before the ceremony in order to ensure everything was set up properly. Gary and Mandy actually visited our venue earlier in the week to make sure she was familiar with the acoustics of the place. Weeks after the wedding, some of our guests were still commenting about how great the music was! We highly recommend hiring Mandy for any event!

We found Gary and 74 Events through a Google search! We were nervous going in with no referral but Gary was amazing! Exceptionally organized, calm, friendly and professional, we felt confident in Gary and Ben Carlin, the DJ he paired with us for our wedding.

We met with Gary and Ben twice before the wedding and had great vibes from the very beginning! They walked us through our night with confidence and made our lives so much easier!

We knew our families love to dance, but woah, did we have a packed danced floor! It was literally the most fun party I've ever been to, and yes I am biased because it was my wedding but the energy and love in our tent was outrageous!

Thank you guys for an amazing experience and we can't wait to work with you again!

Gary from 74 Events was great. We were referred to a specific DJ by our venue and he was already booked for the night, and we were referred to Gary to help us find someone who would be good for us. Gary immediately recommended some based on what we were looking for and during our first meeting, we knew that this would work. The meetings were extremely professional and DJ Dan Arlein (at Gary's recommendation) was awesome. We initially provided relatively loose guidance for music for the reception/dinner/dancing and Gary and Dan helped us refine what we wanted and Dan delivered. It really was a perfect night for us, and the music and was a big part of it. Dan was also really good emceeing part of the night when we moved to different stages of the wedding (i.e. first dances, toasts, etc.). And most importantly, he kept people dancing and excited all night. We also had two performers at our wedding - one during our ceremony and one later in the evening. Gary and Dan coordinated with them seamlessly before and during our wedding night to ensure that everything worked well. We didn't have to really do anything for this or worry about it and everything turned out great.

We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering either Gary or Dan.

74 Events is fantastic! Gary was incredibly efficient and organized - and so knowledgeable about wedding planning in general. He made a suggestion in regards to timing that differed from my planner's and I have to say Gary was SPOT ON! We went with his suggestion and it was perfect. And we DJ Duane was the best DJ I've ever heard. Our guests came up to us throughout the night raving about how spot on he was. We might have given him a list of songs we liked but Duane's ability to improvise based on our list was impressive and always appropriate. He was friendly and fantastic to work with as well. We couldn't have been happier with this team!!!

Our wedding is still a few months away, but we've been really impressed with Gary throughout the planning process. He's doing exactly what we want and need for a completely reasonable price. We're working with one of his DJ who really fits our personality as a couple. We are excited to celebrate with them in June!

"Best wedding ever!"

Ok, we may be biased, but I swear everyone keeps telling us this! And we have to say that 95 percent of that is due to Gary and the music he played.

We got married at the Central Park Boathouse in June and wanted a wedding that revolved around the dance floor- as little interruption as possible and Gary made that happen. From the ceremony to the final song his music truly set the tone of our evening. I couldn't wait to hear what song was going to come on next and when it did the dance floor would erupt. He followed the list that we gave him but I honestly liked the songs that he played that weren't on our list the best - things I wouldn't of thought of but fit perfectly with our group.

Throughout the process in the couple of meetings we had and through emails he was always a calming force - helping us every step of the way and making us feel reassured.

If you like to dance and want a DJ who handles himself professionally, doesn't try to make himself the center of attention and who knows how to make your night the night everyone will remember - this is your guy!

DJ Sean Marquand did an awesome job! He was the DJ for our friends wedding 2 years ago and we knew right away we wanted him for our wedding. Very professional. Kept it classy and fun! He followed our direction on everything we wanted. I would highly recommend him for any wedding or event. My husband and I have gone to MANY weddings and he is the best DJ we have experienced.

Not only did Sean to a great job DJing, but he was very professional, showed up looking sharp, and kept the dance floor packed all night.

As I shared with Sean the night of our wedding, both Sean and Gary were the easiest of our many meetings during the planning process. They were organized, experienced, open to our ideas, and also gave direction that made a big difference (IE. going with a more multi-generational song for the first one played after our first dance).

We will definitely be recommending 74 events to anyone who is looking for a DJ.

We hired 74 Events for our wedding last week. Gary was incredibly friendly and flexible and immediately understood our needs and tastes during our first call. He also came across as really honest and dedicated to his customers; he mentioned that there was only one of his DJs that he thought would be a good fit for us and hoped he was available. Luckily for us, David Medina was available on our wedding date and he was incredible. He was really laid back, so knowledgeable about music, and on the evening of our wedding had all generations on the dance floor for almost the entire event. It really made the evening so memorable and even more special than it already was. He also was able to cut the song I danced to with my father because it had some speaking at the beginning of the track. I don't know when the next occasion we'd have to hire a DJ will be but we would certainly work with 74 Events again.
