Guy from A Beat Above Entertainment was the perfect DJ and lighting guy for our wedding. From the start, he was extrmely personable and very easy to reach; whenever we contacted him he would reply immediately. Guy was very flexible with our ever-changing and last-minute plans, and did a great job as emcee. He was very professional, from his attire to his reliability to his hosting skills. Guy showed up a few hours before our event to set up and ensure everything ran smoothly. He met with us numerous times to go over details such as lighting palettes and song list specifics. We found Guy's pricing to be very competitive and his event packages to be a great way to bundle our needs in one vendor. He was very detailed and thorough and I cant say enough on how great he was! He really made our event run smoothly and kept people dancing until our venue cut us off!

Guy was absolutely amazing from the beginning. He was responsive, professional, super nice, and flexible with us as some last minute things came up. The day of went off beautifully thanks to his MCing. We felt like he really got the feel we were going for and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. The photobooth was also a huge hit. I can't speak highly enough of Guy and his services.

This DJ was the only person who responded with a positive response when I asked for a small, intimate set up for 40 guests with provided sounds system! It was perfect! He was EARLY, not just on time! Phenomenal job! The dance was almost more of a karaoke party at times, which was all the more fun!

Guy made our wedding the most amazing day of our lives!! From his selection of music (we only gave a few must plays, and he kept the dance floor packed for the remainder of the night), to the last minute music our performers needed for the authentic Samoan Dancing during dinner, he blew us away! He's so easy to work with, affordable and really makes your event a night to remember. The photo booth was a hit! I think it was packed the majority of the night as well! We still have people telling us our wedding was the best wedding they've been to, and A Beat Above should be the ones to thank for that!

During our wedding planning we heard many stories from friends and family about DJs. Stories about them loosing the first dance song, not playing the music requested, being difficult to work with, etc. Music is very important to us so we read through a lot of reviews (just like this one) to find a DJ. We were lucky enough to find Guy at A Beat Above Enterainment. From day 1 he was extremely professional, detailed and attentive. We had specific requests around the music, karoake and set-up (2 floors). He met all requests and did an awesome job keeping everything on time. He played excellent music based on the genres we gave him and karoake was an absolute BLAST. Our guests are still talking about it and said it was one of the best weddings they've ever been too. We couldn't have been happier with the services. Thank you Guy!!!!

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding, or any event for that matter, Guy, at A Beat Above Entertainment should be your choice. Everything about his systems, service and professionalism is nothing less than excellent. He is extremely responsive to all your questions leading up to the wedding, offers ideas to help with your planning and will customize to accommodate your special needs/requests.

And the Photo Booth Piece..... Don't do your wedding/event without this. No matter how great your photographer may be they can not be in every place at once. The photo booth (we added props, hats, sunglasses, etc) allows you to capture your guests in great/fun shots.

Guy was a fantastic DJ. We didn't have a lot of "dancing" types at our wedding and he got people out on the dance floor. He played the exact type of music we love and kept the party going. During the ceremony the music was flawless and so beautiful. I highly recommend him and will use him in the future.

The service that was provided from this company was AMAZING. Not only were the prices SO reasonable and cheaper than any other DJ we looked into but he provides you with a free photobooth (one of the latest trends for weddings). He took the time to meet with us and completely lets you customize your own wedding playlist. He is prompt on his emails and services and is extremely nice. He provided a microphone to anyone who wanted to make a toast and also provided lighting for the dance floor. We obviously did not have enough dance time to play all the songs we put on the playlist but I was SO happy when it was over by the choice of songs that he chose from the list to play. The music and dancing was definitely one of the best times at the wedding. I would recommend their services to anyone.

We could not be happier with A Beat Above Entertainment's performance! They were an essential piece in making our wedding day perfect. They totally tailored the music to our wants, played everything we put on our playlist (and nothing on our no-playlist), and even took requests from guests the day-of. They did a great job of capturing the mood of our reception and had EVERYONE dancing (young and old!). A Beat Above was very professional through the planning process and all throughout the celebration, leaving no worries for me (the bride), my husband, or our families. Plus, Guy (the DJ) could not be nicer! We'll recommend A Beat Above Entertainment to everyone.

A Beat Above Entertainment did a fantastic job at our wedding on July 28, 2012… and everyone noticed! Guy provided a high level of professionalism, as well as a great atmosphere for the dance floor. My husband and I met with a couple other DJ's prior and after our meeting with him we knew that he was who we would go with for our wedding. We had a large list of songs we wanted played and he played each and every one of them. Guy has a great presence in keeping everything moving in the right direction (in terms of dancing, toasts, cake cutting, etc.) without being overpowering or cheesy. We wanted low maintenance, stress free planning and we got that with A Beat Above Entertainment, though he is open to as much or as little planning as is needed or wanted by the client! Guy was very willing to work with us and very accommodating even with last minute changes with our entrance song.

One of the biggest compliments we received about our wedding was that our wedding was fun!! I have never been to a wedding where everyone was on the dance floor but that was not the case at ours! Guy kept everyone out on the dance floor and helped make the night flow nicely. In addition everyone had a blast with the photo booth and the images are easily accessible the next day on A Beat Above Entertainment Facebook page!! We loved it!! Classy, experienced and worth every penny. I highly recommend A Beat Above Entertainment for your DJ needs!!!

Guy was perfect. He offered all the same services as every other DJ in town at 1/2 the price. He was super responsive to the type of music we wanted and he had everything set up on time, exactly how we envisioned it. No matter what we asked him to do or changed at the last second he was on top of it. He also provided everything we needed for our ceremony without charging us more for each little element. I fully recommend his services to everyone for any type of event. You wont regret it!
