Our wedding is still a few months away, but we've been really impressed with Gary throughout the planning process. He's doing exactly what we want and need for a completely reasonable price. 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!

74 Events was a dream to work with. We are definitely DJ snobs, and my husband worked as a club DJ for many years, so we were very specific on what we did and did not want. We weren’t looking for the typical wedding DJ, with the cheesy songs and lame table games. We didn’t want a smoke machine, or any of the other crap that comes with many wedding DJs. We especially didn’t want that cheesy DJ voice, or a DJ who tried to fight us for the spotlight. We wanted a laid back and professional club DJ who could beat mix flawlessly in and out of songs, while keeping the party going.

Gary, the owner, was the single most organized vendor that we had the pleasure of working with for our wedding. He was meticulous, thorough, prompt, and in constant communication with us throughout the entire planning process. Meetings with him were efficient, and every single one of our questions was answered. Gary was flexible with our meetings, working around our (sometimes annoying) work schedules.

The DJ booked for our event was Rob. At our first meeting, Rob had put us at ease. He totally got our vibe, and what we were looking for in our wedding DJ. He answered every question that we had, especially those tough technical DJ questions from my husband.

Rob was amazing and professional on the day of our wedding. He was dressed appropriately for our event, and was very prompt in his arrival. He had everything set up and ready to go with time to spare. Everything sounded great! Rob was amazing during our reception, and multiple people came up to us telling us how impressed they were with his skills. We even had waiters from our venue whisper to us on the side that they wished every DJ that was booked for weddings at the venue would be as great as Rob. He was a pleasure to listen to, and kept things moving along on timeline.

Thank you Rob and Gary for making our wedding amazing and cheese-free. You guys are the best!

It was a pleasure working with Gary and DJ Con during the planning of our wedding. Gary was easy to work with and very organized. Gary worked with us to create a great timeline for our event and helped us include all the little details we wanted during our wedding. He was easy going, professional, and always very supportive of our ideas.

DJ Con did a great job planning for and executing our wedding. Con was able to get all the songs we requested and was able to easily mix American and Chinese music together . We also had some unique requests for processional music and recessional music which came out perfectly and on point. Announcements were simple, professional, and elegant. Our friends were amazed with the song selection and the mixing. They had a great time dancing the night away. Everything was on point and, most importantly, my wife had no worries and a tremendously fun night dancing it away. We are so happy and fortunate that DJ Con and Gary were part of our wedding.

Gary and DJ David Medina were invaluable in making our wedding a success. They provided the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and they were so much better organized than we were that they ended helping us create the schedule for our entire wedding day. They were super professional and quick to respond in our planning before the wedding, and during the wedding DJ David got everyone on their feet, playing a great mix of music not only from our provided lists, but other tunes that got even the septuagenarians dancing. He was thoughtful about playing songs that would please our half French-speaking crowd, throwing "My Cherie Amour" in during dinner, and he was great at postponing guests who wanted to make speeches or weird music requests and then coming discreetly to run these requests by us. Best of all, our guests danced all night and we had a blast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 74 Events or DJ David Medina!

When we met with DJ Rob and Gary we knew they were the right fit for us. Not only do they know their music but they have great energy. They were easy to work with and really have an idea of how a wedding should flow. When I tell you that we danced all night at our wedding – I truly mean we danced all night. I barely ate and did not make it to the photo booth because we were having too much fun dancing and laughing on the dance floor. Rob started the dancing off from the moment we entered the room and it did not stop until the last song. Our guests keep saying how much fun they had, how much the music was on point, and how there was not one bad song. Thank you Rob!!!

It blew me away how professional they were. I didn't expect our wedding dj's to be one of the most professional vendors we dealt with regarding our wedding but they were. Gary, the owner is so pleasant and efficient to work with. He has so much experience and has tons of advice on how to plan your wedding timeline so that the flow is perfect and the music is timed to the tee with every aspect. I'm so thankful they were accommodating enough to stick with us through 2 date delays and gave us no trouble. Instead, they were tons of help -with each email and meeting being super productive and concise.
Con, our wedding day DJ was awesome as well. His music library knowledge is so vast and can gauge a couple's tastes given a few song picks. His skills had us late night ratchet stragglers going til we got shut down. And we were so happy to hear a lot of our song picks we mentioned on their worksheet.
I don't know how any couple can go w/o a DJ company not as well rehearsed in weddings. Their knowledge, advice and well-oiled format makes them invaluable and their pricing was the fairest on the market. Highly recommend!!

We used James Mulry through Gary Hoffman of 74 Events for our wedding, and everything was pretty much near perfection. We did not want your typical wedding DJ with an announcer voice, who plays cheesy "hits" all night, and James was definitely not that. We met with Gary and James twice, and they were both professional, and kind. They also respond to any email inquiries quickly. On the night of the wedding, James's attention to detail was appreciated, as was his calm demeanor on a hectic day. James played so much of what was on our list, even stuff that isn't typically played at weddings, and even specific mixes of certain songs we wanted. James was very accommodating, but also had his own great selections that fit in well with the feel of the night. James got everyone crazy on the dance floor, and a bunch of friends were asking how we found him because they loved him. James also did an excellent job with any announcements we needed, and getting the toasts and speakers ready. We wanted a very personal wedding, and James really helped us pull that off. Music was an extremely important part of this event to us, and we are so thankful to James for making things even better than we expected.

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. :)

Dj Duane Harriot was the BEST! Our wedding was just in April at the Greenpoint Loft and we were thrilled with Duane and the party he got started... And kept going til 1am! Many of our guests complimented us on the great music he played and the energy that he helped to create with his building playlist and seamless music transitions. Duane is also a total sweetheart and just a pleasure to have around, I can't recommend him highly enough!!
