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.

My fiancé and I were beyond pleased with Gary and Jay. From our first meeting, Gary was organized and professional. He was very responsive with emails as well. Jay did a fantastic job the night of our wedding. The best part was that he listened to our music preferences and delivered! He had the guests on the dance floor all night long!!!

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.

We were nervous about hiring a DJ for our wedding, because they can be so obnoxious. James from 74 Events was the opposite of that and we are so happy that we choose him to DJ our wedding.

During the planning process Gary was organized and easy to work with. James was great during the wedding. He played just what we asked for and many of our guests told us that they loved the music. There were no annoying announcements or songs.

We would highly recommend James and 74 Events!

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.
