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.

I can't say enough good things about 74 Events. The COOLEST, best NYC DJ company out there, no joke. Gary is so incredibly organized and makes the whole process a piece of cake. He'll do all the thinking for you, all you have to do is answer questions and follow his lead.

You know those perfect nights out where you can't get enough of every song the DJ is playing?? We felt SO confident that that would happen at our wedding if we went with 74 Events, and that's exactly what happened. Sean M. was our DJ, and he killed it. Guests at our wedding asked him for his business card on the spot. He was a gentleman, professional, and super easy to work with.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU Gary & Sean for the most amazing night and best dance party ever.

We hired Ben Goldfarb to DJ our wedding in Brooklyn through 74 Events and had an awesome experience. The process was perfectly streamlined and everything on the business end was easy and professional. We met and booked Ben soon after contacting Gary and instantly felt comfortable with his laid-back style. Gary understood right away that we didn't need an over-the-top MC, and Ben was the perfect fit. My wife and I spent some time together as a couple working out song suggestions and the basic music we'd need throughout the evening and Ben NAILED IT for every single portion, from the ceremony through to the reception. Once the dance party started, it didn't stop until the lights came on! We really can't recommend Ben and 74 Events enough - they did an amazing job!

Gary and Jamar were a FANTASTIC choice for our wedding. This is the easiest decision you can make in your planning: hire 74 Events.

On the planning perspective, they handled all sorts of curveballs, including changing venues and new insurance requirements with grace and professionalism. Their communication was extremely clear, and they helped us foresee challenges and resolve them far in advance. Even when I showed up to a meeting in a full bridal panic-cry, they made me feel comfortable, and planning with them was extremely calming. These guys are the utmost pros and know exactly what they are doing.

The music could not have been more on point. This was a Puerto Rican, Haitian and Jewish wedding, full of dancers, movers and artists. Every single person was included and could not stop dancing. Jamar seamlessly blended music that spoke to all parties, and did so in a way that kept everyone on the dancefloor. We had a pretty loose reception- Jamar made sure everything happened and rolled with it as we went along. He checked in with us in a way that kept the party moving, and kept us included but not stressed. We wanted a badass dance party, and he came through: everyone broke a sweat!

Can't recommend these guys highly enough. Hire them- you will be in great hands.

My wife and I were looking for a wedding DJ with a sense of both artistry and occasion... we couldn't have found any team better than Gary and Rob of 74 Events.

For our July 4th wedding, we were looking for a great mix of sounds - downtempo for dinner; traditional music selections for more ceremonial portions of the reception; non-stop but varied party music for the dancing - as well as a fantastic MC to keep the energy and timing up for the whole reception. Gary and Rob crafted a reception that perfectly fit our needs. They were attentive to what we wanted but confident in their abilities and professional experience, which put us perfectly at ease. Their attentiveness even extended to our outdoor ceremony when they provided an audio setup for our officiants.

We cannot recommend 74 Events highly enough for all of your events audio needs. Thanks so much, Gary and Rob!!!

Cheers,

Randall and Ariana Winston

We worked with DJ Gaza (Gary Hoffman) and DJ Mandy. We absolutely loved Mandy!!! She really knew how to keep the crowd on the dance floor, which was impressive since our guests ranged from 25 to 80 years old! In fact, the reception was going so well that my husband and I asked if we could extend the party! Mandy was very agreeable to it and continued to keep everyone dancing until the end of the very last song. She was very responsive to all correspondence and arrived at the venue well before the ceremony in order to ensure everything was set up properly. Gary and Mandy actually visited our venue earlier in the week to make sure she was familiar with the acoustics of the place. Weeks after the wedding, some of our guests were still commenting about how great the music was! We highly recommend hiring Mandy for any event!

We found Gary and 74 Events through a Google search! We were nervous going in with no referral but Gary was amazing! Exceptionally organized, calm, friendly and professional, we felt confident in Gary and Ben Carlin, the DJ he paired with us for our wedding.

We met with Gary and Ben twice before the wedding and had great vibes from the very beginning! They walked us through our night with confidence and made our lives so much easier!

We knew our families love to dance, but woah, did we have a packed danced floor! It was literally the most fun party I've ever been to, and yes I am biased because it was my wedding but the energy and love in our tent was outrageous!

Thank you guys for an amazing experience and we can't wait to work with you again!

Gary from 74 Events was great. We were referred to a specific DJ by our venue and he was already booked for the night, and we were referred to Gary to help us find someone who would be good for us. Gary immediately recommended some based on what we were looking for and during our first meeting, we knew that this would work. The meetings were extremely professional and DJ Dan Arlein (at Gary's recommendation) was awesome. We initially provided relatively loose guidance for music for the reception/dinner/dancing and Gary and Dan helped us refine what we wanted and Dan delivered. It really was a perfect night for us, and the music and was a big part of it. Dan was also really good emceeing part of the night when we moved to different stages of the wedding (i.e. first dances, toasts, etc.). And most importantly, he kept people dancing and excited all night. We also had two performers at our wedding - one during our ceremony and one later in the evening. Gary and Dan coordinated with them seamlessly before and during our wedding night to ensure that everything worked well. We didn't have to really do anything for this or worry about it and everything turned out great.

We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering either Gary or Dan.

74 Events is fantastic! Gary was incredibly efficient and organized - and so knowledgeable about wedding planning in general. He made a suggestion in regards to timing that differed from my planner's and I have to say Gary was SPOT ON! We went with his suggestion and it was perfect. And we DJ Duane was the best DJ I've ever heard. Our guests came up to us throughout the night raving about how spot on he was. We might have given him a list of songs we liked but Duane's ability to improvise based on our list was impressive and always appropriate. He was friendly and fantastic to work with as well. We couldn't have been happier with this team!!!
