I will keep this short and simple: 74 Events is exceptional, Gary Hoffmann is great, and our DJ Sean Marquand is amazing.

The company is well run, well organized and professional. Gary makes things streamlined and easy. Sean is a lovely man with a great talent for his craft and makes his portion of the wedding about the music and not about him, which I think is a testament to his focus on spinning as art (or skill or performance, insert word you most prefer). He is more than just lining up some tracks. He incorporates the music with different portion of the evening well and takes cues from the couple and the people in attendance, he stays away from corny nonsense, he plays tracks people love and at the right times. We had a crowd full of professional dancers and they tore it up and couldn't have been happier, we also had a ton of dorky doctors who also loved it and were dancing all night. Sean was smooth transitioning between segments, didn't say a single word more than necessary to get the job done. He was efficient and excellent.

I can't imagine any reason to not use these guys. It would be silly.

Absolutely amazing. Incredibly organized and efficient yet everything was designed with the couple in mind. James was our DJ and he was so awesome. In fact, guests from my wedding continue to tell me how awesome he was. And it wasn't just about completely getting and vibing with the crowd which he totally did. He got to know us as a couple, got to know all of our guests giving speeches (and got all names 100% correct!) and moved the evening along smoothly and magically. I highly recommend using 74 Events and requesting James, if possible!

Super happy that we chose them. We dealt with Gary and Duane was the DJ for our wedding at Brooklyn Winery. We wish that our other wedding vendors were as professional, prompt and organized as they were. Duane was great and would hire him again, he kept everyone dancing and was great at introducing the speeches, cake cutting etc. We had a great time and so did everyone there. It also helps that Duane is a real DJ at WFMU which for my money is as good as it gets.

74 Events and Gary Hoffman were incredible to work with and I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking for a DJ, especially for a wedding. We planned our wedding in 55 days, and even with such a limited timeline, 74 Events was immediately on board and started working right away. Throughout the planning process Gary was extremely professional and responsive. They did nearly all of the leg-work music wise and let us know exactly what they needed from us to get their job done. Gary paired us with an incredible DJ that all of our guests loved and the wedding would not have been the same without him. We could not have been more grateful to have found them.

James was the most fantastic DJ EVER. Everyone- from my friends to my parents' friends- raved about him. He had the whole room on their feet the entire night, including my husband's 92 year old grandma. The most wonderful thing about James, however, was not what my guests saw, it was what they didn't see; the level of professionalism was just out of this world. James seamlessly organized the whole event; he had us prepared for everything. He worked closely with my venue and all my vendors. After my wedding, my photographer told me that she wished she could exclusively work with James and 74 Events. I don't think I could have asked for a more perfect day, and that was in large part due to James.

Gary was incredible to work with. He was so professional, and it was clear that he has had so much experience in DJing weddings. We didn't want to use traditional ceremony music and Gary was super helpful in talking through our song choices and how they would work in our venue, the Foundry in Long Island City, which he was very familiar with. The DJ he recommended for us, Con, was insanely good and kept the party going all night. He really felt out the crowd in his music choices and changed up songs seamlessly if people weren't dancing as much to them. It was really impressive and clear that Con was a professional DJ. Overall the experience working with 74Events was great! We couldn't have been happier with the services.

We had a great experience with hiring 74 Events and DJ Kahn for our wedding. From the first meeting, we were impressed with their professionalism, their ability to really listen to our needs, and their overall knowledge.

DJ Kahn completely blew away all of our expectations during our wedding - there wasn't a moment where people were in the seats since the music was just so good. We wanted a mix of 90's hip hop and he delivered. The music and announcements were never cheesy and it was the perfect mix of hits that just kept the party flowing.

We would wholeheartedly recommend 74 Events / DJ Kahn for any event!

Vida did a great job & was a great choice for DJ - highly recommended.

Like many people, music was very important to us. Our wedding was a "smaller" group and not everyone was a big dancer. We were worried this would present a challenge to have a great party, but Vida hit all the notes perfectly - there was alot of dance floor time and there was also some nice mellow interludes where people could eat and talk - a perfect balance for the night.

Gary also does a great job of managing pre-wedding meetings and ideas for the proper flow of the evening. You can get as involved as you want, which is perfect if you have alot of things to coordinate.

Gary at 74 Events was the easiest vendor to work with --- besides being nice and friendly, he's straightforward, professional, and great at follow-through. He takes the guesswork off of your plate and makes sure everything you need is covered. My wedding was very simple, but it was clear he knows how to handle any type of affair. Our DJ was James Arnold and we simply could not have asked for a better fit. He knew what we wanted immediately and executed it brilliantly. Our guests had a fantastic time (and so did we!) and we got many compliments on James' work. Book 74 Events and you'll be very pleased!

We used 74 Events and could not have been happier. Gary as the administrative liaison was always on top of everything - raising questions and issues immediately as they presented themselves so they could be addressed, being extremely clear about every step of the process, being very approachable yet direct about the process - a quality that's very refreshing in the wedding business.

Duane is a highly talented dj that will bring down the house and bring the house to tears, depending on the moment of the event. He incorporated all our direction while taking creative liberties wherever appropriate and when it would add to the feel. He set the tone perfectly and kept everyone engaged, be it dancing, conversing, or enjoying the meal - he never let the feeling of the event slip.

I would highly recommend these guys if you are looking for a DJ. Affordable and as professional and creative as they come.
