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!

We hired DJ Kahn through Gary Hoffman at 74 Events and could not be happier with how everything turned out!! Gary was wonderful to work with....very professional, thorough, and friendly. He made things so easy! And DJ Kahn did an incredible job at our wedding! He was perfect as an emcee....pronounced names correctly, introduced things when they were supposed to happen, and said just the right amount without talking too much or being cheesy. And as a DJ he was great! He played the right mix of songs throughout the night that kept everyone dancing! My husband and I had so much fun dancing at our wedding and we are so glad we went with DJ Kahn! Would absolutely recommend DJ Kahn and 74 Events to anyone. :)

We decided to work with Gary and the 74 events team after a friend highly recommended them to us, and we were very thrilled with our choice. The entire process was very professional and organized. After meeting with Duane (our DJ) and Gary, it was clear that they were very experienced, and they listened to our preferences while making great suggestions on ways to make the wedding the most fun for us and our guests. Some of these suggestions were things that we had never seen at other weddings before, but they all worked out incredibly well getting guests hyped up and energetic throughout the entire evening. Duane was a hit during our wedding. He got the guests going early to set a great vibe to start our reception, and was really good at judging the atmosphere to keep the party going. The song selection was perfect- we had so many guests come up to us at the end of the night telling us how they loved all of the music at our wedding because they were all songs we grew up with. We highly recommend Duane and Gary!!

Amazing company- Jay was perfect for our wedding! Dressed to the nines and worked the crowd ensuring everyone was up and dancing. Music selection was great! Jay checked in with us often to make sure we were prepared (first dance, parent dances...) and satisfied with what he was playing. Meetings with him and Gary were extremely detailed, professional and organized. Truly a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend them (I have already!) and use them in the future.

I can't say enough good things about Gary and our DJ, Rob Kelley! We had a blast at our wedding and everything leading up to it with Gary was absolutely seamless. Gary is, first and foremost, an extremely kind person. The way he conducts business is admirable and he is organized and flexible and more than helpful when it comes to choosing the right DJ for your music taste and type of party. We met and spoke to our dj, Rob, several times before our wedding day, and he showed up and blew us all away! He played all the songs we noted we wanted, totally picked up our style, and had the crowd on the dance floor all night. It doesn't get any better. Thank you Gary and Rob for making this part of our planning and wedding an absolute pleasure!!

When we heard DJ Con play at our friend’s wedding last summer we knew we had to book him for our wedding ceremony and reception. We contacted 74 Events and Gary was approachable and flexible regarding our requests and preferences. He was direct, crystal clear, and responsive. Their contract is solid and they're genuinely the nicest guys! 74 Events has nothing but 5 star reviews wherever you look online - believe it. 74 Events is top-notch.

Working with Con and Gary was totally stress-free. They were easy going and organized. We made a list of songs we liked, must plays, no plays, special songs (like first dance), etc. and shared it with him online. We discuss the general feel we wanted the night of (no cheezy announcements, no electric slide, etc.). He was also kind enough to loop our processional song so that we had enough time to get down the aisle. We had one more conversation a few days before the wedding and a walkthrough at our venue to double-check the acoustics and equipment needs.Con arrived early, in style, and set up well before guests arrived. Con took what we gave him and ran with it. He played some really amazing mash-ups of high school favorites with current day hits. He was really skilled at reading the crowd and stringing them along from one hit to another. Everyone loved the music and raved about how fun the wedding was. Our guests were completely blown away by his mixes. His timing and delivery really kept the party moving. There were many highlights to the evening but one in particular was when he played Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me” at just the right moment and everyone went nuts! :) Looking back, our favorite memories of the day were dancing and having a great time with our friends and family. Honestly, I can't wait to have another big party someday so that I can hire Con again! Truly, it was the best decision we made!!

74 events is amazing. Gary (main contact and DJ) as well as James Mulry (our DJ) couldn't have been better. 74 Events/ Gary truly sets the bar high in terms of professionalism, timeliness, and attention to detail. No other vendor we worked with had such a strong system in place to ensure every detail went according to plan and make for an amazing wedding day. James went even further. He had such a great feel for the room, gauging the energy level and always staying ever present and alert. One example of his expertise follows: when we wanted a slow song for our last dance, he suggested we leave it to DJ's choice. At the end of the night, everybody's energy levels were still high, and James played Fun's "We are Young." The entire room danced in a crazy circle on the dance floor, enveloping us and just having a blast. We felt so completely surrounded by love and great energy. Listening to James on this front was one of the best decisions we made.

Overall, I am so happy we went with 74 Events. I am the type to interview at least 5~10 wedding vendors for each category, and after meeting Gary (the first and only DJ vendor I interviewed), we were sold. Don't go anywhere else- 74 events for the win!

74 Events was absolutely flawless for our wedding. Gary and our DJ, Rob, were amazing to work with. They were both extremely prompt, professional, and fun from the planning through the actual wedding. We were married in December 2014 and Rob provided our wedding with a great atmosphere. The music was great and Rob was super professional throughout the entire night. Our friends and family loved the music, and Rob was awesome in reading the room and asking us if he could transition to get some of the older guests on the dance floor too. We know how important the DJ is to setting the tone of the wedding and Rob helped make our night absolutely perfect.

I am *obsessed* with Sean Marquand, who was the DJ at my wedding. He was a friendly, pleasant, super nice person and I adored him in the planning stages, but he knocked me out with the incredible job he did at my wedding. He completely transformed the event. I knew my musical taste wouldn't translate well to the wedding setting. Yet, amazingly, and improbably, Sean played every single weird, silly song I love, and wove them in and out of the more normal songs everyone else loves. In the end, my guests told me repeatedly that the wedding was a great dance party, which is a gigantic and well deserved compliment to Sean. His music sense is expansive, tasteful, and well placed. Sean, who can read a crowd like no one else, closed the wedding on the song I wanted most, but hadn't told anyone about because I thought it would be a downer. It was a huge, moving moment, and I love him for it. In more practical terms, he had a terrific feel for pacing and moving the party along, and was excellent at letting my husband and me know when it was the right time for a certain toast or specific dance, in a way that kept thing going at a good clip without any awkward pauses.

In terms of business, Gary Hoffmann is a blessed combination of gifted, organized, and hard working. Gary is the person who taught me the proper composition and layout of the event components. He radiates expertise in the most calming way, and is at the same time a talented businessman who will keep you on track and make you think about your wedding holistically. He is a good dude. If I had a billion dollars, I would hire Sean to hang out with me all the time and soundtrack every moment of my life, which is the most complimentary thing I have ever felt about anyone. The music and pacing are the most important parts of your wedding. Don't screw it up. Hire someone awesome. Hire Sean. And meet with Gary because he is super chill and is rocking at running the best DJ business in NYC.
