My experience with Gary and James was nothing short of incredible!!!! They were both totally cool people to begin with, were so easy to work with, and made the music component of our wedding so simple. This was important to me as there was SO much chaos in planning other aspects of our big day. Pricing was much more reasonable than other DJs who didn't come close to the job these guys did. Best in NYC!!!

Working with Gary and Con at 74 Events was a breath of fresh air. These guys are pros from start to finish--with plenty of experience, they ask all the right questions and provide input that they have seen to make weddings and events successful. We did plenty of research, but they dug into things we didn't even consider. They had us detail what sorts of music we wanted and when we wanted it to go on, and coordinated with our caterer so the full team was in sync.

Con is someone who appreciates music and, from our first conversation to the day of our wedding, we could tell that he was synthesizing everything we had talked about to try to create the most awesome mix possible. Our friends confirmed that fact, overwhelmingly--they were dancing the entire time, and everybody mentioned how awesome the music was. We gave Con a wide variety of songs, artists, and genres that we like; I think we heard just about every song, and he blended them together perfectly. Weddings aren't just about the young folk though, and our older relatives all said they enjoyed themselves, too, danced a bunch, and when they weren't dancing they were able to talk to each other at their tables.

Logistically, Con rolled with the punches--even after we had to change our venue the day before the wedding and having to carry his equipment through a bunch of snow! He's an awesome person to work with and we couldn't recommend Con and 74 Events more wholeheartedly.

If I can give 10 starts, Gary and Con definitely deserve all 10 stars! Gary and Con not only gave us ideas for our wedding, but also was super flexible and provided EVERYTHING we asked for. Gary is very prompt, answers all your questions on time and suggests awesome ideas for the wedding. Con is just wonderful. Con was able to accommodate our plan change on the day of the wedding and he rocked it. All the guests complemented how great Con was the whole night. I would definitely recommend 74 events for anyone who is looking for DJ. Thank you guys!

I would definitely recommend working with 74 Events. We heard about them after they DJed for our friends wedding, and both at our friends wedding and our wedding, they were seriously awesome. We had a very specific idea for the "feel" of our wedding (not too "prom-y"), and Gary and Rob delivered. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional, and totally "got" what we were looking for, and they created the perfect mix that kept everyone dancing until the early morning. Gary and Rob were even flexible and let us pick songs, add toasts, etc, up to the last minute! Working with 74 events is a pleasure, and made the night truly amazing. I can't recommend 74 Events enough!

We were so happy with Sean, our DJ. He was so responsive, collaborative and very professional and we loved working with Gary and Sean. We received compliments all night long about how great the DJ was. My mother called him "outstanding!" And everyone was out on the dance floor.

We had an amazing example experience with 74 Events. Gary was really organized and professional and he matched us with a DJ who had similar tastes and was exactly what we were looking for. Gary met with us over skype prior to booking and then several times through the planning process. We did not have a wedding planner and Gary and Ben (aka DJ scribe) helped us plan and think out a lot of details we wouldn't have. tye night of everything worked out perfectly. The music was awesome and people danced all night. He played the song a ee said were a must and also worked in his own picks that completely fit with our taste in music. We could not have picked a better DJ and are so happy we went with 74 Events!

There are not enough stars to give 74 Events, thank you!!!! Gary is extremely organized, professional and trust worthy. He was super flexible when scheduling times to meet and he asked all the right questions. I didn't have to worry about anything. Based on our music tastes, he recommended DJ Rob for us. HE WAS THE BEST!!! We had a non-stop dance party at our wedding and he went above and beyond our expectations. He's also an awesome MC - gets the point across but did not try/nor want to be the center of attention. He was able to gauge the crowd to get everyone up out of their seats. There are also a lot of cheesy traditions I think people do at weddings and they totally got it when I told them I wanted to avoid those.
Best decision we made!!! Do not hesitate whatsoever when it comes to hiring 74 Events.

We had such a great experience with 74 Events. Gary is very professional and was able to quickly match us with an exceptional DJ. Since we don't live in town we had a number of phone and Skype meetings talking about our taste in music and expectations, and the day of we were confident that DJ Con and Gary knew what we wanted and would be able to execute it. Nearly everyone at our reception came up to us raving about our DJ, and those who didn't were sure to let us know how wonderful they thought he was the next day! He didn't just play our requests but mixed them live and supplemented our likes and requests with great picks that met our taste. He showed up early and familiarized himself with the venue and equipment, which was a big help on a stressful day. Both Gary and Con were a pleasure to work with, and we can't recommend them strongly enough.

We are so happy with out experience with 74 Events, and James, in particular. I will say off the bat, and without reservation, that his professionalism and command of the evening was exceptional. The 'light MC' duties were done respectfully, with class, and kept to a minimum.

Now specifically about the music. We basically provided a list for cocktail hour/dinner, as we were very specific with the songs we wanted to hear. He played them all, and then some, in a great order. It got people drinking. With dancing, it was a little more difficult, as we have a hugely diverse group of friends and family and wanted something for everyone. This is what we did. We basically provided James with 2-3 songs that would be representative of the 3 genres we wanted to hear. In this instance, it was like, nu-wave goth dance, classic R&B type stuff, and some modern dance/pop music (think Sia, Beyonce, Rihanna type of stuff). From these specific touchpoints, we simply asked him to expand outwards and build the list that way, and to dig deeper into each area. It was really pretty hands-off from there. The music was unbelievable. We heard our requests of course, but he completely built a list that went pretty deep on any one of those suggestions, but flowed really well. Our guests danced all night, and afterward we got tons of compliments on how good the music was. Again, I think there really was something for everybody, and surprising to boot. The energy never let up.

I'd also add that James was flexible and responsive in the moment. For instance, at one of our pre-meetings with them, we said 'NO HALLELUJAH' as we have heard it a million times at weddings. Then, I think it was like the night before our wedding that Leonard Cohen died. Well, about halfway through the evening, my husband asked James, with a laugh, to reverse that decision as we knew it would be a tearjerker moment for everyone and a nice tribute. Very cool.

We would recommend them without reservation!
