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.

We used Gary and Con from 74 Events as the DJ at our wedding and they were absolutely awesome! They were extremely professional and knowledgeable in our meetings and emails leading up to the big day, and Con absolutely rocked the venue during our reception -- I don't think there was a single guest sitting down -- even my 80-year old grandma was up dancing! And we got tons of compliments from all our guests about how awesome the music was!

There are a lot of DJs to choose from in NYC, but you absolutely can't go wrong with Gary and his team, who will go out of their way to ensure you have a fantastic event!

Gary and Woody were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the onset, Gary was a consummate professional. He was on top of all of the details (scheduling meetings, rundown of the night, likes/dislikes), and made the entire process easy for us.

Woody is an incredible DJ! The music was the perfect mix of all the musical genres we love. Woody knew what to songs to add to our list that would keep the party going. He kept everyone on the dance floor for hours! We couldn't be happier.

When my wife and I first met with Gary (and James our specific DJ) we felt the stress lifted away as Gary explained how everything would work for our wedding. They were so detail oriented with our song choices, name pronunciations, times and locations, we knew we were in good hands. Even Gary's responsiveness really gave us peace of mind as he would email us back within minutes of when we emailed him with questions. He met out of his office and on weekends with us to fit our schedule since we live too far from the city. And he continued to remind us that our wedding shouldn't be looked back on as a cheesy presentation by a goofy-voiced DJ, but it should be smoothly run in a tasteful way and specifically tailored to what we needed and when we needed it. As I said before, our minds were put at ease before the wedding date.

The day of, our 74 Events was the first vendor to arrive at the venue. our DJ was carefully meeting with our officient to discuss details of the service, talking with our venue and event coordinator to confirm the order of things, and he was always checking with us in case we needed anything from him. 74 Events should not be titled as a DJ company but more of an event MC company as our DJ announced and introduced the dinner courses, the speeches, the dances and even reminded people to sign the guestbook and where to leave cards. And just like Gary suggested, our DJ James, did all of it in the most tasteful way possible. There was no cheesy over-the-top voice or goofy comments made. He was professional and classy all night.

I have suggested and recommended 74 Events to several people since our wedding and I will continue to. They are a very thorough company that will make your wedding day run smoother than you would have ever expected. From your music, to your announcements, they are an amazing vendor to have.

Gary was very organized and always prompt and clear in his responses to our e-mails. Our meetings with him and James (who DJed our wedding) inspired a great deal of confidence—both of them were very professional and took a lot of time to really get to know us and our taste in music. They stayed in touch with us throughout the planning process, and any questions we had were always answered quickly and clearly; we never had the slightest doubt about choosing 74 Events. And when the actual wedding arrived, James far exceeded our already high expectations—he absolutely nailed the whole evening, from incidental music as guests were filing in to the processional and recessional to party time at the reception. (He also dove right into our 1920s theme and dressed the part; such a great touch.) All of the songs we requested were played at the best possible moment, and he chose the other songs so perfectly that many of our friends asked us if we had made the entire playlist ourselves. James and Gary could not have done a better job for us; just fantastic work.

Working with Gary and DJ Duane was a pleasure. Gary worked with us in the beginning and organized the overall evening. He was so easy going and extremely responsive. We had DJ Duane at the wedding and we could not have asked for a better DJ. We didn't have to provide him with much information or direction, and he knew just what to play for our crowd based. And he MC'd the evening perfectly. He was not over the top and had a cool vibe, which kept the party going all night. He played all the songs that we requested to hear. I had guests after the wedding complimenting me on the DJ and the music selections, which we have to give all the credit to Duane! Some even asked for a mix from the wedding! I would definitely recommend them to any couple seeking a DJ for the their wedding.

We are so happy we choose 74 Events for our wedding. We had debated between a band and a dj for a while and despite the financial savings, we went with a dj so we could play more songs throughout the night and have a more varied selection of music. All of our friends had bands at their weddings and they all sounded similar and played the same songs. We wanted something different. Working with Gary was straightforward and easy. He was super organized and helped us successfully plan the night. We had Rob as our dj and he did an amazing job, selecting the right songs and playing them at the right time throughout the night. He brought so many of our guests to the dance floor that our wedding became a raging dance party! Even our guests were super impressed. Rob really set the vibe for the night and we owe him for making it the best night of our lives.

AWESOME!! DJ Lindsey Tipley killed it at my wedding!! To start from the beginning, my initial contact was with Gary. I explained what I was looking for and the feeling I wanted to create for that day. He immediately recommended Lindsey and when we all met the first time I knew we wouldn't be disappointed. Besides the cocktail hour which was dedicated to my dad, the idea of creating a song list was too overwhelming for my fiancé and I. We gave her a list of a few of our favorite bands, genres we're into and she ran with it. She knew how to read the crowd and kept them on the dance floor the entire night! They were very professional and easy to communicate with. I HIGHLY recommend 74Events!!
