"My wife and I hired AllStar for DJ and Uplighting service for our wedding. The staff at AllStar in Andover was very responsive, courteous, and helped us pick out the right DJ for our wedding given our personalities and budget. Our DJ and our Lighting designer were both top notch, and we highly recommend them!!! The wedding went great!" Patrick and Yu-Ting



AllStar DJs and Ivy League Wedding DJs

We have 2 different DJ divisions, for maximum flexibility in finding a perfect match for your DJ entertainment. Our DJs will help plan and organize your wedding with you in advance, then run the timeline as your master of ceremonies and coordinate all the other vendors at your reception so that everyone is on the same page.

How do the 2 DJ divisions differ?

Our award-winning AllStar DJs typically perform a full variety of music for all generations including any traditional favorites that may be requested (provided they are not on your "DO NOT PLAY" list). The AllStar DJs are experienced, flexible, and accommodating to your guests, able to adapt their style anywhere from low-key to high-energy, based entirely on your wishes. The overall focus is keeping everyone in attendance entertained, having fun and dancing until the very end.

Our new "Ivy League Wedding DJs" offer a refreshingly different approach... articulate young MCs with minimal DJ chatter once the announcements are over; no games, cheesy line dances or cliche' overplayed "wedding music" EVER and a strong emphasis on contemporary, cutting-edge, beat-mixed dance music to keep the floor packed. If you have specific tastes in music they are happy to adapt to your needs. An ideal match for those who do not want a traditional "Wedding DJ".

Unlike some companies, you'll meet our office staff, owner and your DJ in person, before you even hire us. The DJ you select and book is named on the contract and guaranteed in writing. He'll customize the music and formalities to your tastes, and our full-time office staff will be available every time you have a question or need our help, because...at AllStar, it's all about the bride.



AllStar UpLighting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Cambridge, MA



Recent review:

"My fiance and I used AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting for our July wedding (Hyatt Regency in Cambridge shown above), and we could not have been happier. From Day 1, we were very impressed with the agency’s professionalism. Michael Edwards, the owner and veteran DJ, was extremely helpful and responsive; we had numerous phone calls with him to go over all the details and he was always very sincere, helpful, and easy to talk to.

On our wedding day, everything was perfect! Before the ceremony, our DJ (Brian McCarthy) coordinated with the hotel staff, our officiant ,and the live musicians that we had and confirmed that everyone was mic'd up appropriately and that all acoustics sounded right on key. He ensured that everything ran smoothly.

After a flawless ceremony, DJ Brian continued to impress everyone throughout the evening. He ensured that the bridal party and parents were all lined up in the correct order before we made our entrance into the ballroom. Everything was right on cue, and the timing and announcements of all our events flowed smoothly and perfectly as if the evening had been rehearsed hundreds of times!

As a veteran MC, DJ Brian McCarthy knew exactly what song to play by "feeling" the crowd's energy level. Also, he was very professional/respectful in playing the songs that we had requested on our "must play" list, and was mindful of not playing any songs on our "do not play" list.

Our uplighting technician, Casey Brown, also did an exceptional job. Casey’s work was stunning, and it enhanced our already breathtaking view of the Boston skyline. We had requested the lights change along with the music, and Casey was a champ in orchestrating such an awesome effect – subtle, yet noticeable.

This truly is an AllStar agency – my wife and I are extremely happy with the exceptional services provided. Worth every penny

Thanks again AllStar!"

AllStar Featured on National Television...

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting were recently hired to plan, DJ and design the uplighting at a wedding featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network Reality TV Show, "Don't Tell the Bride" (Season 1, episode 8). We are proud and honored to have been the only Boston-based entertainment agency selected for this nationally televised show. The couple, Joe & Cristin recently had their first baby. Congrats!!!


AllStar UpLighting

UpLighting, if done correctly, applies the right number of wireless LED uplighting fixtures to your venue to evenly wash the room in the color theme you desire. From a simple, warm candle-like glow during your on-site ceremony to dramatic, sweeping color changes that add excitement to the dancing during your reception... we'll match your vision exactly. The lighting can be soft and subtle or bold and intense... it's all up to you and your vision.

You'll never see our DJs operating the uplighting... since we ALWAYS include a full-time professional lighting designer to help you plan the lighting in advance and then to attend your wedding for 5 hours to maintain and operate the uplighting by remote control. You decide: a) one elegant color theme all night, b) add pre-planned color changes for your special moments (upon your entrance, fist dance, cake cutting, parent dances etc) c) back to constant original color theme after dinner, or d) exciting "live" color changes by the designer timed to the music to add energy to the dance floor. We can even match the lights to match your dinner napkins, bridesmaids gowns or color swatches. The choices are endless. See for yourself by making an office appointment to view a free demo of your wedding colors in our uplighting showroom.

Here's a tent wedding at the Stevens Estate in North Andover.... just before our lighting designer arrived.



Here's what the guests arrived to see instead.... which look do you prefer? Perhaps a different color?



Same tent later that evening...








"Boy!! You blew away our expectations!! I have received so many compliments on our DJ selection. Phil's father actually fast-danced - UNHEARD OF! Michael, you are one of the first people I've worked with that surpassed all of their claims. You really put my mind at ease because of how seriously you take each and every client's event and how much you love what you do.
Thanks you... loyal client for life."

I can't say enough about DJ James! He was AWESOME! From the moment me and Joe met James we knew he'd be a great DJ, and sure enough, he was! He had everyone on the dance floor ALL NIGHT and interacted with the crowd. Well worth the money! There is nothing that I would've changed. He made our special night one that we will never forget.

We knew we wanted AllStar Entertainment after one of the Ivy League DJs was the DJ for a friends wedding last year. Our initial appointment with Dan was great. He understood the vision of our wedding and that we wanted everyone dancing all night long. When he called us a week before the wedding to go over our forms, our original excitement was confirmed when he reviewed every last detail of the wedding. He suggested we do things and when we were in the venue, tweaked them based on the specifications of the venue and what he thought would work best. He offered us suggestions and they worked out great. One of the greatest parts of the nights was the father daughter dance, to which my father and I had a little surprise dance for everyone and it went off so smooth as everyone joined in with us at the end. Everyone from age 4-74 danced the entire night. We might be crashing DJ Dan Campbell's weddings just to relive ours!

The photo booth was an added bonus that everyone enjoyed. Family and friends of all ages recorded flipbooks, photos and video messages. I only wish more of our guests were brave enough to record a video!

All I can say is wow!!! AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting was so great :). Before Emily and I went through the entire wedding planning process we honestly had no idea what uplighting was. When we went in for our initial meeting, Mike showed us how much of a difference uplighting makes at an event. The venue was able to turn the lights off so it made the uplighting even better. The entire tone of the room can be changed in a second. At dinner we had a gold theme and while dancing the color of room kept changing. It really was amazing. AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting offered a professional decorator to control the lights which made all the difference. Most DJ's offer these services; however, we would recommend going with a professional who concentrates just on the lights. Also, all the uplighting equipment is not the same. We would defanately recommend the uplighting and professionsion services that Allstar offers :)

We had DJ James from AllStar Entertainment & Uplighting for our wedding on 5/2/15 and couldn't be happier with how great he was! He would respond quickly to any questions or requests we had leading up to the wedding and made us feel comfortable every step of the way with his professionalism. He stuck to our song requests and Do Not Play list, which my buddies were begging him to break in a couple cases. He was able to keep people on the dance floor the entire night with his music selections... never was it empty! So many people came up to us after the wedding to let us know how great our DJ was, both the younger and older crowds.

Thanks James for everything! We truly appreciate all the hard work and energy you put in to make our wedding special.

DJ James was the absolute BEST! We were so unbelievably happy with his services. After meeting him initially, we knew right away he was the perfect fit for our wedding. His personality plus his skills make James a MUST at your wedding. Our dance floor was PACKED the entire night. We are so thrilled with everything and have heard from several people that they loved the music selection. We didn't have a song list and let DJ James feel out the crowd and work his magic. We also worked with Ashley for up lighting - the combination was unreal. Ashley and James coordinated perfectly. The lighting and music synced so nicely. We couldn't ask for a better DJ and up lighting specialist for our NYE wedding. Thank you for making our night so special. Cait and Ryan
