Simply a pleasure!! We met with Gary and Rob Kelley (our DJ) and didn't even think twice about meeting with another company. Rob and Gary are the nicest, most caring, and super professional. We would recommend 74 Events to anyone and everyone! Rob knocked our socks off with his skills and our wedding guests are still raving about him!! In fact, the day after our wedding, 3 different people who were guests called to find out who our DJ was so they could recommend Rob to their friends or use him for their own wedding! Rob and Gary really took the time and effort to get to know us as a couple so they could play the music we wanted for our wedding, we really couldn't of asked for more!

Gary and James were incredible. They were attentive, incredibly helpful in guiding us through choosing music and having the right flow to our wedding and dancing. On the day of our wedding James was not only kind, reassuring (we were very nervous for our first dance), but great at making our guests feel welcome and all those giving toasts feel comfortable at the mic. He was truly perfect. We had so many compliments from our guests regarding the music- and we even had an encore song per the chanting request of our excited guests:). James kept the party going and helped us have such an amazing night.

We could not have been happier with our experience with Gary and James Arnold (our DJ). The music and dancing were big parts of our wedding James made it a great party. Gary did an awesome job of hearing what we wanted and pairing us up with James. James took our ideas and made it all work perfectly. He was professional and a nice guy. He did a great job of checking with the two of us during the reception if there was a question, but there really were no issues. Everyone had a great time and the excellent music and DJ-ing was a big reason why.

When we began our search for a DJ, we struggled because many of the people/companies we met didn't seem interested in anything aside from making money but when we first got in touch with 74 Events, I kid you not, we knew they were our type of people based off of our first email interaction. Within 15 seconds of our first meeting, we were sold. This is a company that really takes into consideration your style, passion, story and preference. Music is so important to us and we knew it was going to be a huge factor in making our special day everything we wanted it to be. Our family is a wonderful mix of Irish and Puerto Rican so we knew our wedding was going to be an epic bash for the ages that needed the appropriate playlist. 74 Events made our day everything we wanted it to be - fun and epic.

"My calves HURT" -- this is the text we received from about 10 people the day after our wedding. If you're looking for a wedding DJ, stop now. Gary and James did our wedding last month and absolutely CRUSHED it. Between all our vendors, Gary was the most organized and put us at ease from the very beginning. James Arnold (aka Agent Trevor) couldn't have been more perfect as our DJ, too. So flexible, so accommodating -- from the beginning of our ceremony to the final song, he kept the party moving at the perfect pace. He started out with multi-generational mo-town and funk, and then as the night progressed and the crowd got younger, he moved more into hip-hop, which was absolutely perfect. Everyone was dancing from beginning to end and guests continue to tell us weeks later that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. And we honestly attribute about 80% of that to Gary and James at 74 Events. James is the opposite of an intrusive/annoying bar-mitzvah DJ -- he chilled behind his tables and quietly made the few introductions/announcements we needed and just played banger after banger all night long. We can't say enough great things about the entire experience working with these guys -- not to mention their price can't be beat. Anyway, not much else we can say other than these guys will singlehandedly make your wedding the best party ever, even if all your other vendors suck (which is entirely possible). This should be the easiest decision you make throughout the entire planning process -- you lucked out bigtime by stumbling on 74 Events. Thank you again Gary and James - we owe you forever.

We hired 74 Events and Constantine to DJ our wedding and had a great experience. Gary at 74 Events is extremely responsive and organized and throughout the whole process made things very simple for us, which was much appreciated. Con was a fantastic DJ who completely listened to our vision/likes/dislikes and gave us a truly wonderful and memorable dance party. Our guests of all ages were on the dance floor all night. Would highly recommend 74 Events and particularly Con!

Gary (the owner) did an amazing job coordinating every detail of our wedding. We had Ben as our DJ for our ceremony and reception and he did a fabulous job. He was able to match the mood of the dance floor and play the right songs. We recommend working with Gary and Ben!

We can't say enough good things about Sean and 74 events. They are so thorough, organized and thoughtful. Our wedding was about 2 weeks ago and Sean did such an incredible job. We wanted a mix with some classic rock and hip hop, and it was EXACTLY what we wanted!

During the planning phase, they provided a worksheet where we listed some songs we wanted to hear at cocktail hour, dinner, dancing etc.. it was actually perfect because it helped us get a sense of what we were looking for. Sean immediately picked up the vibe we were after and was a true professional, delivering exactly that.

You won't have to worry about a cheesy MC, that's not Sean's style at all. The announcements were short and tasteful, nothing over the top. We really felt like they were listening to us and genuinely wanted us to be happy with the service.

We were so happy and all of our friends commented about how great it was. Couldn't recommend them more.

Gary and James were wonderful to work with. Both are consummate professionals- experienced, knowledgeable, communicative, organized, and efficient. Gary really guided us through the whole process and both of them listened to what we wanted and offered opinions on how to best achieve it.

The music the day of our wedding was perfect throughout the whole event. And once the dancing started, I didn't stop the entire night. We cannot recommend 74 Events and James highly enough.

Hiring 74 Events and Rob Kelley as the DJ for my wedding at 501 Union this past Saturday was the best decision! From my initial e-mail, Gary responded with all of the information I needed and we scheduled our first meeting. I had a sit-down with Gary and Rob and knew they were the perfect team for my wedding. They brought a lot of passion for music and making sure they understood my vision for the wedding. Wedding's are multi-generation events and all of my family and friends LOVE to dance, and Rob's playlist was the perfect mix for everyone! I can't tell you how many people came up to me throughout the night saying how amazing the DJ was. We had 144 person wedding and I swear all 144 people never left the dance floor once the party started! The value for what you get is also amazing - they were actually under my initial budget! I can't recommend them enough for your next event!
