"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 young, educated and articulate "Ivy League Wedding DJs" offer a refreshingly different approach... MCs with minimal DJ chatter once the announcements are over; no 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 any time you have a question or need our help, because...at AllStar, it's all about the bride.

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!"

As seen on National Television...

We 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). AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting is proud and honored to have been the only Boston-based company selected for this nationally televised show. The couple, Joe & Cristin recently had their first baby. Congrats!!!


AllStar UpLighting

UpLighting, if done correctly, applies the correct number of wireless LED uplighting fixtures to your venue to evenly wash the room in the color theme you desire. From a simple, warm candlelike 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 professional lighting designer (with a degree in lighting design) 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-determined 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 swatches from your color theme. The choices are endless and the difference (as seen in our pictures) is amazing! See for yourself by making an office appointment to view a demo of your wedding colors in our uplighting showroom.

DJ James has a new-school, unique way of keeping everyone involved, dancing and having a great time throughout the entire night. He knows how to talk to a crowd without being cheesy and maintains the highest form of professionalism from the first time you talk to him, until the very last song of the night. So many of our guests told us afterwards how impressed they were with him. We felt calm and relaxed knowing that DJ James had everything under control! If you want the best for your wedding, you definitely need to check out DJ James and Ivy League Weddings first!

When "shopping" for a DJ, my husband and I looked into ASE on the advice of a friend. I say "shopping" in quotes because our search started and ended with DJ James DiNanno. We knew immediately that James was no salesman, just a charismatic guy who genuinely loves what he does. Throughout that first conversation we discussed our style and vision. You could say that my husband and I have a pretty eclectic taste in music.. (We talked about the Fleet Foxes. Our intro song was "Life on Mars" by Bowie). To our surprise, James was not only knowledgeable about our tastes but also enthusiastic. We left there knowing we made the right choice.

James promised that he would not be center stage at our wedding, and he truly wasn't. I've seen my fair share of wedding DJ's who take away from the meaning of the night by making it about themselves. James was present, fun and interactive but he was never overbearing. We've had countless guests comment on how likable and professional our DJ was.

James is an artist, skilled at reading a room and creating/maintaining a buzzing energy level. My dad, a product of his era, remarked that there weren't as many slow songs as he expected. We know that this is because our guests drove the music, James could sense that we were a particularly wild group, and he played off that skillfully. And believe me, even my dad got DOWN.

Last but not least. Unfortunately for us, the event coordinator at our venue was less than stellar...but I'll leave that for another review. Due to lack of direction and communication, the entire bridal party felt a bit lost and frustrated at pivotal points throughout the night. Without even being asked, James and our photographer Katherine Taylor sprung into action and worked together seamlessly to bring everyone on the same page. The result? Not a single guest knew that we had ran into any trouble at all. The night was perfect, and we could not be more grateful to have such an amazing team there to take care of us.

So easy to work with and such a fun enhancement to have lighting that matched the mood of the evening and could change throughout the night. We opted for 'candle light' at dinner and then colorful lights filled the tent during the dance portion. Our designer even pulsed the lights to the music sometimes. He used a remote control and remained behind the scenes, which was also quite nice. I highly recommend them! Great value and venues seem to like their style of lights they bring as well (in terms of safety/electrical needs etc. I guess it's easy).

If you want an absolutely amazing experience for you, your partner and your wedding guests then All Star Entertainment should be your vendor; especially DJ Josh Wiseman in particular. I was planning a wedding in Massachusetts while I was living in Philadelphia finishing up graduate school. Josh was extremely flexible and receptive with our situation and used FaceTime to connect with us. His main goal was to make sure that my husband and I had the wedding that we wanted and that was evident throughout the whole process. Whether it was checking in on our paperwork, giving me his personal cell for when I had questions, or creating an AMAZING mash-up mix for my Father-Daughter dance- Josh was a Rock Star!

One thing that literally all of our guests stated about our reception was how amazing our DJ was!! Josh got everyone from my 80 year-old grandmother to my 3 year-old niece onto the dance floor and kept them on the dance floor. So if you want to have the wedding and reception of your dreams with not stress and an amazing guy for your DJ, then Josh Wiseman is the way to go!

I used AllStar for our wedding DJ. First of all even though they provide uplighting and photobooths - they were not pushy to sell them to you. That was a big plus. When we went in for a consultation, they took the time to talk to us and matched us up with Peter and he was a great match. AllStar has a lot of forms for you to fill out, they may be annoying as you are contacting all your vendors for a second time, but I do believe they really do help. I was planning my wedding from far away and our DJ, Peter, was responsive and really made us a priority. He gave me his cell phone number and that week before we were texting and he remembered everything I texted him about. The dance floor was PACKED ALL NIGHT LONG. For us it was important to take breaks and play slower music and play softer music and he mixed that in perfectly with the high temp for the younger crowd. They will talk to you about how they 'warn' you when events are coming up and they absolutely do. Both my family and us (the bride and groom) felt like we knew what was going on the whole night thanks to our DJ, Peter. As for value: our DJ, Peter actually came in UNDER our price range in our budget and far below what other DJ services were charging!!!

Flawless is how we describe AllStar Entertainment & Uplighting!! They were invaluable to the success of our wedding! From first contact all the way through to our wedding day, Michael Edwards and his staff were extremely professional, and detailed. It was a pleasure doing business with them! They offered wonderful ideas that tremendously enhanced our vision! Peter Healey was our DJ and he was amazing! Michael Clark Wanson was our lighting designer who made the venue look like a palace in a fairy tale. Our guests continued to compliment them! We have the utmost appreciation and gratitude for AllStar making our very special event perfect!

Ivy League DJ James DiNanno

James was phenomenal! Right from the very beginning you could tell that he's done this for a very LONG time. We met once, exchanged several emails, and had a couple phone calls before the wedding day. James knew every detail and timing of the whole event before the day even came. He was on top of everything and I had full confidence in him. If you're having a hard time making a decision, just go meet with James once. He's very personable, is easy to work with and knows his stuff inside and out. The dance floor at our wedding was literally packed the ENTIRE NIGHT!

We weren't the only ones impressed with James. Not even 10-15 minutes into the reception our photographer came over to us asking who the DJ was. She was extremely impressed with his awareness and control of the whole event. Everything was spot on and my wife and I couldn't have been more happy with everything! Again, just meet with him once and it'll make your decision that much easier!

Bailey from Allstar Entertainment was a pleasure to talk to on the phone, and she did a magnificent job with the uplighting. The room was spectacular, the cake table and the sweetheart table were beautiful w/the lights and I never even saw her at work she was so stealthy. Well worth the money, beautiful and fun- set the scene for a great night. Thank you so much!

Hello soon to be newlyweds,

Our names are Erick and Carolyn and we really, really, want to tell you about our DJ Josh Torres from All Star Entertainment. When we began our process we knew that we needed a DJ that would fit the tone of the wedding that we wanted to present. The tone was something along the lines of sharing love across all cultures. Carolyn being Italian-Irish and I, Erick, being Ecuadorian (Latin America) we knew this would be a tough task for any DJ.

When we first met Josh we knew he was the guy. He was very nice from the get go, even traveling close to two hours just to meet us for the first time. Full of energy, respect and kindness just radiated from him, and we knew that he was the guy.

Fast forward to a week before the wedding, we had issues with 2 mixes that we needed to incorporate for our entrance and our first dance due to my own fault. I reached out to Josh and he took care of the problem and our dances came out awesome. To further show his commitment to our day, Josh did not even care that our wedding date happened to fall on his birthday. He wanted it to be all about us. Incredibly selfless!

Now to the party!!! Josh kept that party going from beginning to end. I don’t think the dance floor was empty ever. He was able to combine English speaking older family members, an English younger crowd, a Spanish speaking older crowd, and a Spanish speaking younger crowd all into one. It was awesome watching everyone mix and share our day with us. He definitely helped create the environment that we wanted.

Last but absolutely not least, Josh helped us plan out a final surprise dance where my now wife and I did a number to Jay-Z and Beyonce’s “03 Bonnie and Clyde”. Not only did Josh coordinate our grand finale, he also took care of holding and delivering some props we used. All in all, Josh will always be remembered by us for making our night super awesome. We love you man. HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!

My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and DJ James DiNanno was phenomenal. We wanted to have our families dancing the whole night but knowing our families we didn't think they were going to. James did a fabulous job of selecting music to get everyone on the dance floor for our entire wedding. Besides everyone saying congratulations to us after we got back from our honeymoon, the first thing they mentioned about our wedding was how amazing DJ James was and how they couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was all night long. Our older relatives as well as our young friends in their twenties were all dancing. We had total trust in his ideas and suggestions and they were all great! He is a very personable guy who anyone can get along with. He has an outgoing personality that really got our wedding party motivated to set the tone of our wedding for the rest of our guests. We really believe that James brought another level of fun to our wedding. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great DJ who will offer their advice but also care about your own ideas and wants for your function.

We had Brian as our DJ and he was great. We didn't give him much direction about what to play, but we trusted that he would do a good job. He read the crowd and kept everyone dancing all night. He through in a few games that were quick but fun and our guests really enjoyed them. AllStar also did our uplighting and our venue looked amazing. We could not have been happier with both the DJ and uplighting and I would recommend this company to everyone. They are so fast to respond to emails and are so friendly.

We used AllStar for music and uplighting at our wedding and couldn't be happier. Our DJ, Josh Wiseman, was absolutely fantastic. Very personable and knows his stuff. From our first meeting, he made us feel like our wedding was unique. I threw some random song requests at him (especially for the ceremony) and he accommodated them all. He even took the time and energy to make sure he knew how to pronounce the name of everyone in the wedding party. Our biggest hope for the reception was that people would dance, and Josh made sure that happened. The dance floor was busy all night.

Casey managed our lighting and did a terrific job. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted -- only what I DIDN'T want -- and she nailed it. She took the time to ask about our wedding colors, etc and managed to make it all work. The lighting was sort of an impulse decision, but I'm so happy we decided to go with it, because it really made our venue come alive -- every color Casey used made the ballroom feel like a different place. People are still talking about it.

Wedding planning can be stressful and working with vendors can be a challenge. AllStar is responsive, professional, organized, and great at what they do. Choosing them was one of the easiest decisions we made.

DJ Josh Wiseman

We originally met with Michael Edwards at AllStar, as my husband's brother had booked him for their wedding and he had gotten rave reviews. Michael wasn't taking on any new weddings, but recommended Josh to us. After chatting with Josh on the phone, we booked him right away without meeting with any other DJs. Josh was very responsive and professional before, during, and after our wedding, and we really feel like he "got us". We love modern music but wanted to keep it classic at the wedding to make sure our older crowd stayed on the dance floor, and Josh was great at picking the perfect music to keep everyone moving. We would definitely recommend Josh to anyone looking for a friendly, professional, and personable DJ! Thanks, Josh!

DJ Joshua Wiseman is the man! He helped create such wonderful memories on our wedding day that we'll remember for the rest of our lives! The quality of service he provided was extraordinary from beginning to end. Josh made the planning part so easy and relaxed. His knowledge in the music and entertainment field is so impressive. We told him about our ideas, what we liked, and disliked and trusted him to make most of the decisions. Josh was always there to answer any questions or concerns we had.

On the wedding day, he coordinated very well with my wedding coordinator, photographer, and videographer to make the night flawless. He was cooperative and worked well with other professionals. My wedding party felt very comfortable with his guidance and directions. The night was well planned and organized from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, introductions, reception, cake cutting, bouquet/garter toss, to the last dance. All my guests had so much fun all night. He kept everyone, from young to old dancing and up from their seats all night. We received many compliments about him from our guests. If you want a fun wedding filled with laughter and love, Joshua Wiseman is the guy to choose as your DJ/entertainer!

All Star Entertainment and Uplighting did a fabulous job at our wedding! James, our DJ, was professional, responsive and fun to work with!! I've had multiple people tell us that they don't usually dance at weddings but James had the knack for keeping everyone dancing and happy!! The Uplighting was beautiful. Ashley, who did the Uplighting for us, was also professional and easy to work with. Lastly, the photo booth was so much fun and a great addition to the night. Thank you All Star Entertainment for helping to make our wedding so memorable!!

I was recently married January 11th at the Hawthorne hotel in Salem, and went with Allstar entertainment and up lighting for music and lighting. As all brides know, planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, however the moment I called Allstar entertainment and uplighting, I knew I was in good hands . Their professionalism and knowledge of the industry as well as their desire to customize their services to stay true to what I wanted was incredible.
Dj James Dinanno walked me and my husband through the entire decision making process, from ceremony music to our last dance. He met with us several times to get to know who we were as a couple so he could deliver music that was true to our relationship and our guests. I had a difficult time selecting ceremony music, however James was there with his endless collection of music to help me choose that perfect song to walk down the aisle to ( vitamin sting quartet-I can't help falling in love with you).
Not only did he deliver incredible ceremony music, he also kept the dance floor packed all night long! He had people dancing that I never thought would leave their seats! I received so many compliments on his music choices and ability to read the crowd, and truly made the night one that no one will forget for a VERY long time!
Allstar also provided uplighting, and truly made the night complete. It is absolutely worth the extra money because it made the reception come to life and completely wowed my guests. Alyson fro Allstar UpLighting did an incredible job and delivered on every aspect that I was liking for. This company is filled with allstars and I would recommend them to any bride!

I used James from All Star entertainment as the DJ for my wedding. I have heard so many great things about him and all of which were true. He kept yo what I had asked beforehand and everyone had a good time. There was not a time where there was no one on the dance floor except maybe during dinner. James made my wedding the best day ever. He makes everything fun and try's to get the other guests involved with what is going on.

Everyone I have spoke to in the office is just wonderful. They are all easy to get in touch with and helpful with any questions or concerns I had. I would recommend to anyone getting married to go with All Star entertainment and Uplighting and request James as your DJ. You will have a blast!!!!

We recently had our wedding and worked with AllStar Entertainment and Uplighting. The entire staff that we worked with were friendly and motivating; especially Josh Wiseman, who was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond his duties as a DJ and made sure he met with us on many occasions while we planned our wedding. The night of our wedding, he was professional and his tribute to the different military branches was touching and thoughtful and added to the theme of our wedding.
The uplighting was outstanding as well and set the mood the entire night. The experience could not have gone better and we would recommend the services of this company to all who are looking for the "perfect wedding". You will not find a more dedicated company who is set on making sure your night goes the way you plan it to.

Brian was amazing, the music choices were fun and entertaining and kept everyone on the dance floor. We absolutely loved the special surprises he had for us as well! The photobooth was also a success, my guests had so much fun with all of the props! I have had many friends inquiring about where I got my DJ and photobooth from and I gladly say Allstar!

We used All Star Entertainment for our music and lighting, and it was the best decision we could have made. Mike made it easy to pick which DJ would work best for us, and set us up with the best lighting options for our space. It was especially helpful that they had done receptions at the hotel before, so he knew exactly what we needed to make the evening work.
DJ Greg Ryan was a party-maniac, bringing out the dance diva in all of our guests. We quickly added an hour to the reception, after seeing everyone up and out of their seats. He perfectly orchestrated the tone of the evening, and worked with the lighting technician to make both work seamlessly together.
Working with All Star Entertainment was a great experience that I’d highly recommend.

The professionalism of the staff made the process seamless and during my wedding. DJ James was so fantastic! He got to know us and our taste in music and he just went with it. Everyone kept coming up to me and paying him compliments. We had a variety of age groups and the dance floor was never empty. The bridesmaids and I even broke out in chorus to Wilson Philips during dinner! I would highly recommend these guys for any occasion.

Josh from All-Star was fantastic! Of all the choices of vendors we made for our wedding, going with Josh was the smartest choice we made by far. Our do-it-yourself wedding needed a "glue" to hold everything together and Josh was the right person for the job! Our guests couldn't stay in their seats & danced the entire time. Our guests ranged from 7 years old through 80 years old and he played music for everyone to enjoy & dance to. He even walked around with the microphone through the crowd of dancing wedding guests watching people dance & sing and really got involved. He was more of our "host" for the evening as opposed to someone who came in with their computer and hit "play" on a playlist. We appreciated his sense of humor and professionalism and would recommend him to anyone looking for a quality DJ for their wedding or any big event. Thank you Josh!!

I ABSOLUTELY loved having James DiNanno as my wedding DJ! He made our wedding memorable and absolutely the best time our guests have had at a wedding. He was so easy to work with, as is all the staff from AllStar. He is super organized so we knew exactly when we would be contacted to discuss our music plans. He had great suggestions for our ceremony music and helped us tailor our wedding must-play list to our preferences. He had the entire crowd on the dance floor alllll nighhttt lonnnng! It was amazing!!! Everyone commented on how fun the music and dancing was that I ended up giving his name out to many of my friends and family that are planning their wedding. It was the best money I spent for my wedding day! Pick James!

We had Brian as our DJ, we had picked him because our goal was to make sure there would be people on the dance floor all night, and that is what he's known for. Brian totally lived up to his reputation. To start, the whole process was easy, one meeting and we felt totally comfortable with our decision. Our wedding was amazing, not one hiccup! And that was thanks to Brian. He played every song that we requested and everything in between and he had people dancing! Brian played games, we had a dance contest, which was awesome, everyone loved it, and he joined in to dance with us too!!! he ensured that we had everything that we wanted and everyone dancing! Brian is such a sweetheart, he also made sure that we were able actually sit and eat our dinner, instead of constantly being stopped to smooch for the clinking of the glasses by all the guests (which trust me, wouldnt have ended) Brian had people earn the kisses by singing! Hilarious and made for great pictures. Everyone kept coming up to me to comment on how great he was. Big thanks to Brian, you helped to make our day all that it was!!! THANK YOU!!!!

He had the whole room on their feet and dancing the entire night. He knew what song to play next to keep the energy up and was extremely easy to work with. I recommend him to all my friends and a few of them have already booked Josh for their weddings. I can't say enough good things!

We got married on Oct 12th 2013 and had DJ Greg Gervais for our wedding, and we also purchased a monogram floor light. The lighting was perfect and added that little extra touch we were looking for. Greg did an amazing job, and I would certainly hire him again for any function. He kept the party going all night long ( and we had a longer than usual reception. ~7hrs ). The sound level was perfect, never too loud or too quiet. Sound quality was excellent and Greg kept the dance floor full all night, playing just the right mix of music to keep both the older and younger guests of our wedding dancing until the very end. He was amazing to work with, helpful throughout the night and understanding of all the things we wanted. We have received many compliments on Greg and continue to refer him to anyone that asks. Honestly I could not think of a better DJ, and I hope I get to work with Greg again in the future.

This review is LONG overdue. After researching, and meeting with, several vendors, we chose All Star Entertainment for our music and uplighting needs. Our initial meeting with Mike, the owner, was both pleasant and informative. From there, he was able to match us with DJ Greg Ryan. Greg far exceeded our expectations. He was enthusiastic, professional, and personable. When they say the music makes the night, it's true! Greg listened to what we wanted and delivered. I can't count the number of compliments we've received since the wedding. He also did a stellar job working with the events staff to make sure the night ran smoothly.

Thank you Greg and All Star!

All I can say is that James DiNanno is the best!! Music was so important to us and we were so lucky to find James at AllStar to be our DJ. Our first meeting with him we knew we wanted him at our wedding, he picked up on our style and gave great suggestions. James was easy to talk to and always responsive to emails. By our second meeting he had already put a play list together and we had so much confidence in him that we actually asked him what song our bridal party should enter to!The night of our wedding he had everyone on the dance floor from start to finish. Some people even danced through dinner because the music was that good, he made our wedding amazing!I definitely recommend James!!

We were very nervous about finding a DJ for our wedding, as we viewed the reception music one of the most important elements to having an awesome wedding! We picked Brian McCarthy and were very happy with the decision. He was easy to get in touch with and accommodated meeting us both over the phone and in person. He listened to and fulfilled all of our requests (actually, I wish I had requested just a few fewer songs, because the music flowed best when Brian just picked the songs based on how the crowd was responding.)

I was a little nervous because in a lot of the reviews people talked about him playing a bunch of games and bringing costumes and stuff. We talked to him about it and he assured us he would not have that at the wedding, which he didn't. We did end up doing one little 5-minute game where Brian had us stand back to back and do trivia about each other (he asked us first and we said yes)...and it was fun and entertaining without being over the top or cheesy. I liked that he added some touches that brought cohesiveness to the group. I had a lot of people tell me it was one of the most fun wedding they've been too, and I certainly danced my ass off!!

Looking and choosing vendors for your wedding can be a difficult task but my now husband sat down with DJ Ivy League James DiNanno and the rest is history. James began planning our playlist in his head it seemed before we even confirmed he was our guy. We have a very mixed taste in music and James captured it perfectly. He kept the night flowing from the ceremony, to the cocktail and wrapping up with all the guests spending the majority of the night on the dance floor. It was a wonderful experience and everyone keeps saying how wonderful the music was.
If you are looking for a DJ that wants to work worth you and make sure Ivy League James DiNanno is a great choice. He went as far as to download a song at the wedding me and my girlfriends dance to at every wedding.

We recently got married on September 14, 2013 and I must say we had an absolute amazing DJ. DJ Josh Wiseman is such a caring, personable and creative person. We saw him DJ at a friends wedding and loved how he was so energetic and kept the crowd dancing the whole night. And that is exactly what he did for us at our wedding. The whole entire night he had everyone, from our grandfather who is 80 to our little flower girl who is 5, dancing to all different kinds of music. Josh was so easy to communicate with. Me, being a worrisome bride at times, he made me feel so relaxed and calm. He insured me that all of our " do not play" songs would not be played and all our special request would be so special and memorable. And he was absolutely right. Everything from the introductions, to the prayer, to our last dance was everything I imagined and more. He made our night so much fun and memorable. Our guests absolutely loved him. A few of our friends getting married next year, I can guarantee will hire him! I was actually driving the other day thinking to myself, man I am upset the wedding is over because I felt like my family and I had a good connection with josh, we felt like he was family and now we don't know when we will see him again. But I love throwing parties, so for my husband 40th I will totally hire him to DJ that! So all my fellow brides out there, Josh Wiseman is the DJ to hire to make your wedding one to remember forever. Trust me!

Our wedding would not have been the same with out James DiNanno. When we first meet James and told him that we wanted our weeding to not only be a celebration about us but our friends and family too we were instantly on the same page. We expressed to James that we wanted it to feel like a party with a tempo that would keep building throughout the night leaving guests wanting more when it came time to leave...and James did just that! He set the tone through each and every song keeping the night on track. When it came time to party after all the formalities were done the dance floor turned into a club and DJ JD ripped it up reading and engaging the crowd the whole time. 5 stars for James!. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ who listens, is attentive and detail orientated. James you made our night!!!!

My daughter, Gina, was married on September 7th and we chose to have AllStar Entertainment provide the music for her reception. I have two words for all of you - "Peter Healey". This man is talented, organized, very professional, calming and full of energy and excitement. Peter worked with the function people to keep everyone in the wedding party on a timeline and he played every song that my daughter wanted. Peter even met with us at my home a week before the wedding to go over all the details of the wedding. Peter had everyone up and dancing when my daughter and son-in-law were announced into the room and he kept them dancing for the rest of the night. We had awesome music played through dinner and Peter made sure that he had a mix that everyone would enjoy throughout the night. I can't say enough about Peter Healey. He truly made my daughter's wedding special and he made it all about her and her husband. So many of our guests commented on the music and how much fun they were having. Peter came over to my husband and I a couple of times to check-in with us to make certain that everything was okay. This was one of the few parts of the wedding planning process that I didn't worry about once I met with Peter. He told us that he would take care of everything and he did! Thanks again Peter and AllStar - we'll definitely be recommending you to everyone we know.

For our wedding, we had a photobooth, uplighting, and DJ from AllStar Entertainment and UpLighting. DJ Anthony Arone was by far the best DJ choice for our wedding. He was able to get all 140 guests on their feet dancing. DJ Anthony set the tone of the wedding and had everyone enjoying themselves. Every guest said it was the best wedding they have ever been to!

My husband and I got married on September 6, 2013 and although there is a great amount of stress when it comes down to picking venue, florist, Photographer etc. I have to say we did not have any stress picking our DJ. We have a good friend that uses DJ Josh Wiseman for every party they have and we have loved his work since day one. There was no doubt in our minds about who our DJ was going to be for our wedding because of course we would have not gone with anyone else besides DJ Josh Wiseman. He is very professional and if you are looking for a great DJ that could even get that one relative that has never stepped foot on the dance floor complaining "I don't dance" do not be surprised if DJ josh is able to get that relative up on the floor. He works with all age groups, I had family members that were in their mid 90's that were on the dance floor. He was able to cater to all age groups and contribute to such an unforgettable night. I am still having people coming up to me raving about DJ Josh Wiseman. I am 100% happy with my decision of having DJ Josh Wiseman apart of our wedding he will work with you the whole night and is very easy going to be around. So like i said before DO NOT hesitate to book DJ Wiseman you will NOT be disappointed!

DJ Josh Wiseman did our wedding on 9/1/13. We can't say enough positive things about Josh. He made our wedding absolutely AMAZING. We had just about every single guest tell us that our wedding was "the best wedding they've ever been to!" and we owe a lot of that to Josh. From the moment the dinner was over, I don't think there was a single guest in their seat. The dance floor was completely full the entire night. We had a wide range of wedding guests from young children to 80 year old grandparents. EVERYONE commented on Josh's choice of music. He kept us dancing the night away & incorporated all different genre's of music. Not one part of the reception was awkward. He kept it going smoothly & had the BEST selection of songs. He was so easy to work with along the way. We were texting him at all hours the week before the wedding finalizing everything! Josh was so easy going & willing to go above & beyond for us. We HIGHLY recommend Josh for your next event. We already have friends & family members ready to book him for their weddings & they aren't even engaged yet! YOU ROCKED THE HOUSE JOSH!!!!!

We had DJ James as our DJ. He did such a fabulous job at keeping everyone dancing and everything flowing smoothly. I had a really unusual request for my walk down the aisle and James was able to edit the song to make it fit perfectly. It was like a dream come true! He also made sure to keep the energy flowing all night and worked with the other vendors to get a seamless production . We also had the uplighting which looked fantastic, done by Bailey. She was so kind when she called to make sure she got the mood we were going for with the lighting. All Star Entertainment accommodated us in so many ways and I would highly recommend them and James to everyone.

We hired Josh of AllStar Entertainment to be the DJ at our wedding in August 2013. We would highly recommend him. He was professional, personable, approachable and a pleasure to work with. He "read" the crowd well, kept the dance floor packed, respected our musical tastes, helped incorporate a surprise event (involving guitars) for the bride, flawlessly delivered the announcements throughout the night, and had no problems setting up in two locations. You’re the best and thanks again, Josh!

PS Holly at the office also was a pleasure to work with, professional, and highly personable and responsive. Thank you, Holly!

My now husband and I got married on 8/31/2013. Anthony Arone from AllStar Entertainment in Andover MA, was our DJ and also supplied the music for our outdoor ceremony.
My number one concern for our wedding day was that all our friends and family enjoyed the day as much as we knew that we would. To do this, I was dead set on having music that appealed to every guest, at all ages. That is exactly what Anthony did. Words cant even being to express the gratitude my husband and I have for Anthony's talent to get the guests up out of their seats by choose the right songs, at the right time.
Like all brides, I had so much on my plate that choosing music was difficult. After talking to Anthony, who was extremely personable and knew his music, I decided to put all trust in Anthony to choose songs based on our short conversation. Best wedding decision, I could have made. Of course the bride and groom can love their DJ as they get to tell the DJ what music they like, but a month later we are still hearing about all the fun our wedding guests had on the dance floor.
To top it off, this year was a busy year for weddings. We had 5 weddings including our own. Most of our friends and family were at each wedding too. We are now done with all the weddings and our friends constantly are tells us that out of all this years weddings our DJ and wedding location was the best. That means so much to my husband and I, as our goal was to have our guests enjoy themselves and make new memories together.
To us the music is the biggest part of the reception/party, our day wouldn't have been a success with out Anthony Arone!! We want to thank you again Anthony for making our day amazing through music.

Anthony was the best DJ ever! He was always so quick to respond and such a big help in putting together our wedding entrance to be exactly what we wanted! Our friends and family were dancing ALL night long. He catered to our every request, even staying later than anticipated because I extended our wedding at the last minute because everyone was having such a great time and no one wanted to leave! I cant say enough good things about AllStar Entertainment! A definite must hire for any event!

James DiNanno was an amazing DJ, he was enthusiastic, professional, and took care in the work that he did. We had an exceptional wedding reception, thanks to Allstar Entertainment, but especially to James. We had our lighting done by Allstar as well and I can honestly say that they did an incredible job. We were wowed and amazed by the work that Allstar did. We look forward to future parties that will require the need for a DJ so that we can hire James DiNanno again.

We used AllStar for our DJ, Uplighting and Photo/video booth and could not have been happier! We had Brian McCarthy as our DJ and sincerely felt that he provided the best DJ service I have seen. Several guests commented on how great he was!! He had the perfect amount of involvement in the night and read the crowd well in deciding what songs or crowd interactive games to play.

The Uplighting was amazing and totally transformed the room and vibe of the night and Michael was super cool and friendly.

The Photo/video booth was a HUGE HUGE hit also...although somehow apparently no one realized it was a video booth,, which was disappointing as we have no videos of the night!
The props were the best and the pictures and photo book that comes with it are an added bonus! Imagine seeing a picture of your boss with a "Who Farted" sign or boa around her neck. Well it happened at my wedding!

The night was perfect, and I highly recommend AllStar Entertainment and everyone in the Bridal Center in Andover (Photography by Linda is a must too and right next to All Star!!) for all things wedding related. That place is amazing and such a convenience. Splurge on the extras, it's worth every penny!

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

Thanks for your great review. Good news, if you check the thumb drive that accompanied our photo memory book which we presented to you at the end of the night, you will find copies of all the booth videos from your reception. We also always post every photo on Facebook for free reprints, but since videos are often much more personal and we cannot censor their audio, they are only available to you from your thumb drive. Since everyone has a different vision, any type of DJ interaction, photo booth sign or prop can always be used or omitted at the client's request. Thanks again for your comments!

My daughter, Jackie Olson, was married last Saturday evening and Peter Healey from your company DJ’ed the event. I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic job Peter did. He kept things moving and once the dinner was over the dancing never stopped. All of the guests, no matter their age, loved the music. That is a real tribute to the DJ. My wife and daughter cannot think of one thing they would change about the evening and Peter was a big reason why. I thought you should know.

Yours truly,

John

We actually found AllStar Entertainment on Weddingwire. With so many positive reviews, it was an easy decision. We went with DJ Greg and we are so glad we did. We spoke with Greg the week before our wedding and ironed out the type of music we wanted at the wedding and some special requests. Greg was able to give us advice on when to play certain songs and was even able to find an obscure song from our college days. The day of our wedding, he came up to introduce himself in a full tux. We were very impressed. From the cocktail hour music to our first song with was sung by two of our friends, Greg was very accommodating to everything we asked. He got the crowd going from the start. I honestly think I left the dance floor just once, and that was to take a picture in our photo booth. When it got towards the end of the night, he made sure to squeeze in all of the songs we asked him to. I've had at least 3 people ask for his info. Thanks so much Greg! You rock and we'll call you in 50 years to DJ our 50th wedding anniversary :P

I used All Star Entertainment at my August 18th wedding at the Danversport Yacht Club in Danvers, Ma. James DiNanno was our DJ, and Micheal Dynice was our lighting coordinator. We have nothing but great things to say about James and Micheal. James really listened to our music tastes and incorporated it into our event even though bands like "Something Corporate, Blink 182 and Saves the Day" arent usually heard at weddings. He went through everything with me, including the scedule of the day, song choices, and even the pronouncment of the bridal parties names. James was also very accomodating when right before the bridal party was about to be introduced, I wanted to change their intro song. James kept the dance floor packed even though it was a small wedding and his song choices really hit home with us. I would definitly book James again if I needed a dj. He was very professional, dressed very well and wasnt pushy with anything or always in your face. We were very pleased with our choice for Dj, and we recieved many compliments on the music at our event from our guests. What complimented James also, was the perfect lighting design by Micheal Dynice. They worked so well as a team and the lights were beautiful during dinner and really fun during the dance portion of the night. It was so fun to see all the lights flashing perfectly in sync with whatever music was playing. The lights put a perfect wash of color on the walls and Micheal had a great style fading them in and out to fit the moment. We were very pleased with the lighting! There arent enough good things to say about James and Micheal, I didnt have to worry about a thing all night and thats what we wanted. If you are on the fence about a dj or lighting coordinator. Give James and Micheal a try:)

At a recommendation from another bride I called All Star Entertainment 6 months before our wedding. I first spoke with Holly who was so sweet and after telling her what I was looking for she instantly suggested I speak with James DiNanno. As soon as I spoke with him there was not a question that he was the DJ for us. He was enthusiastic about our music taste, he doesn't like the cheesy stuff, and he loves to feel out the crowd to pack the dance floor! A week before the wedding we went over the timeline, ceremony songs and our do not play list (Beyonce). I could tell we would not have to worry about anything, and we never did. On the day of our wedding James perfectly timed our ceremony songs, provided microphones, had the correct live versions and packed our dance floor with his song selections. Our guests LOVED him and so did we! He was sweet, polite, enthusiastic, and timed everything perfectly. We never had to worry about anything except having fun. I have heard horror stories about bad DJs and my husband and I feel so lucky that we had the most perfect DJ ever! I highly recommend All Star Entertainment and James DiNanno to every bride, it will be one of the best decisions you make!
We also had a photobooth through All Star Entertainment and they were also AMAZING! Our guests had the best time- and we have the most hilarious pictures from it! They make a guest book with the pictures that your guests sign, and they give you a flash drive with all the pictures at the end of the night! My only regret is that my husband and I didn't go into it more! Honestly, everyone we dealt with at All Star Entertainment, Michael Edwards, Holly, James DiNanno, Ken & Jeremy were amazing! We are so happy that we had them as vendors and I couldn't imagine it being any more perfect! Thank you so very much for helping make our wedding so perfect!

After doing a lot of research into entertainment companies, we decided to trust the online reviews and go with AllStar Entertainment. After our first meeting with Michael and Peter, we knew we chose the right company. Peter Healey didn't miss a single detail in the preparation for our wedding, and it showed when the day finally came. Peter was very professional and clearly knew what he was doing, keeping the dance floor going all night. We have had our wedding guests ask for his information and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable DJ. With all the things that you need to worry about with a wedding, putting this part of your wedding into the hands of AllStar is definitely a good choice.

We used AllStar for our uplighting & DJ (Greg). From our first meeting with Michael Edwards to the phone calls with our DJ & lighting person to their services at our reception - their customer service is excellent. Our DJ Greg was very nice, accommodating, a lot of fun, and kept our guests on the dance floor all night. He checked in with us prior to the wedding to see what sort of experience we were looking for and gave us just that. One of the best things about AllStar is that they make sure to pair you with a DJ that suits your personalities and will be a good fit for your reception. We appreciated that tailored sort of experience and it made a big difference. We felt that our DJ was just our speed and just what we were looking for. No matter the type of DJ you want - they can set you up with your best match.

The lighting was also exceptional - we absolutely loved how the room looked & the lighting person Ashley stayed all night to ensure everything looked great. Our experience with All Star from start to finish has been wonderful and I would highly recommend their services to anyone.

We were married on August 3, 2013 and used Allstar Entertainment for our DJ and Photobooth. We were extremely fortunate to work with Michael Edwards. His personality, professionalism and genuine passion for his career were apparent from our very first conversation on the phone. We had two meetings with Michael before the wedding, but our trust in him made it feel like we had known him for years. On our wedding day, he effortlessly interacted with our guests, coordinated with the other vendors and the end result was a packed dance floor all night. Our guests are still raving about the music and the fun they had!
The photobooth was a huge hit as well!! Colleen and Cody did an amazing job! They joined the fun and helped choose props for the pictures. At the end of the night we had a complete photo book of all the pictures taken....instant gratification!
We highly recommend Allstar Entertainment as a vendor for DJ and photo booth!!!!

Josh,

Emily and I want to thank you for making our wedding the perfect formal affair and then transforming it into the ultimate dance party, which is exactly what we wanted! We can't tell you how many of our guests have commented on the music and energy of our wedding. From the staff at the Hawthorne who told us ours was the "loudest, most upbeat wedding they have ever hosted", to our friends and family who are continuously raving about the fact that "the dance floor never died down and the wedding was the best they've ever attended". We owe a great deal of the success of our wedding to your ability to combine our musical suggestions with your talent of reading the crowd to make sure the party never stops.

We will highly recommend you to anyone without hesitation and I believe Emily's father wants you at the next house party!

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about AllStar Entertainment and DJ Josh Wiseman! Josh provided the music for our cocktail hour as well as our reception, and he did, quite simply, an amazing job. We had seen Josh at another wedding, and before we left that other wedding, we asked for his contact information, since we were looking for a DJ for our wedding. We were able to book Josh quickly and easily through AllStar Entertainment, and their packages were very reasonably priced. Before the wedding, we discussed everything we wanted with him and the types of music we were looking for, and Josh was so easy going about the whole process, erasing any concerns we had about the reception. Most importantly, the music he played was exactly what we were looking for. He played all of our requests (we only requested a few specific songs), and a good mix of modern and "oldies" music. He kept the energy up all night and the dance floor packed. From the minute we left the reception, our guests could not stop raving about what an awesome DJ he was. He was definitely a big part of why our wedding was such a success with our guests. I would, hands down, recommend Josh for your reception!

We also booked a photo booth through AllStar. It was a hit with our guests! It was packed all night, and at the end of the night, Greg Gervais, who was running the photo booth, gave us a book of all the pictures. Beside each picture, the guests had written a message and signed it. We can't stop looking at it - it was a great memento from the evening. We would absolutely recommend booking a photo booth through them as well!

Our DJ was Peter Healey, and he is amazing!!! He is super personable and really listens to what the bride & groom want. You can tell he truly cares about providing the best music possible. I'm half greek and so Peter was great in playing the Greek music for us, even when I gave him a look its like he could my mind of what I wanted next. We live in San Diego CA so planning from 3000 miles away is tough as you can imagine! But Pete was just so accommodating and really went above and beyond to make sure even as far as California he was able to answer all our questions through email/ meetings. We were able to get everything we wanted with Pete, our wedding was two weeks ago and we have friends getting married next year who loved him so much at our wedding that they already hired him for theirs!
We also got uplighting through All Star and she did an amazing job as well, we had certain requests for colors during the entrance which was on point and the colors were beautiful in the room. It was great because the uplights were wireless and so she was able to place them in really awesome places to make the venue look amazing!!! It was great because she stayed there all night controlling the lights!
All star is a great company, one stop shop!
I'm sure all their DJ's are great but if Pete is available we HIGHLY recommend his services, he helped make our wedding amazing, got all our guests dancing, and top of that is super personable and accommodating to our needs.

When I first met AllStar DJ Josh to talk about planning our wedding, the first question he asked me was "In 3 words describe exactly what kind of wedding you want." Immediately I said "Insane dance party!"

insane dance party is exactly what I got! My guests loved everything that Josh played and he gave great variety so all ages could be up on the dance floor.

We trusted Josh completely to give suggestions on good songs for introductions and dance songs. He was very high energy and great to work with and get in touch with. As his 300th review, I'm clearly not the only one who thinks so.

I would absolutely recommend Josh to DJ and I know that I will be using Josh in the future for any further functions!

James was the DJ for our wedding and from the initial meeting you could tell he has a passion for what he does and it really means alot to him that everyone enoys themselves. James provided us some great insight to ensure the guests were engaged in the first dance through to the end. I am not exaggerating when I say we had 10 guests come up to us and complement on the great type of music played, how they were on the dance floor all night beause every other song was another one they loved. There was only one lull in the dancing and he immediately recognized it and picked the right now to get everyone back on the dance floor.

I will recommend him to anybody that needs a DJ going forward!

Dj James DiNanno of Allstar Entertainment is one of a kind! He kept my guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG. We couldn't have made a better choice and all my guests agreed! We got so many compliments about our music and our DJ. We would book him again in a heartbeat! James understood us and our music style and really got the party started. He was so responsive through emails and is clearly an expert in what he does.
It was wonderful going into our wedding day knowing that no matter what, James would make the party something everyone would remember. I'm sure we will see him again at another family wedding because all my wedding guests will be calling him after the amazing time we all had.

Mike was our Lighting Tech from AllStar entertainment and again, he was a great match for us! He works really well with James and coordinated his lighting to the songs! The lighting is a special touch that can really make a reception feel unique. It really added to the ambiance of the night, and was one of my favorite things about our reception.

Our DJ, Josh Wiseman, was truly AMAZING. We could not have asked for a better person to entertain our family and friends at the reception. Josh was incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process. He checked in on us a few times from the moment we signed the contract to our wedding day. He made us feel relaxed and constantly reminded us to simply enjoy the day and leave the rest to him.

Josh had everyone (seriously, EVERYONE) on the dance floor the entire night! Our guests were dancing in between courses and for the rest of the evening after dinner. He played a great range of music from oldies to today's hits. He listened to our suggestions and knew exactly what the crowd wanted. We got a lot of compliments on his selection and overall energy from our family and friends during and after the reception.

We would highly, highly, recommend Josh or any of the AllStar DJs. They are professional, attentive, and, most of all, a blast to work with! Thank you, Josh!

They always say that a DJ makes the wedding fun or horrible - and I have to tell you... Josh Wiseman made our wedding AWESOME!! Everyone went on the dance floor! He got everyone to learn the wobble (huge hit!) and even played the football song so that my dad and I could do our 'touchdown dance'. He played a perfect mix for the crowd and everyone kept talking about how great he was! We can't thank him enough for making our wedding so special :-)

Michael Edwards made our wedding a night to remember by all. His energetic style and his uncanny ability to play music based on the crowd had people of all ages up, dancing and enjoying themselves the entire night. Even in the moments of slight "chaos" amongst the wedding party or the planner, Michael Edwards was able to keep everyone engaged, and entertained while issues got figured out behind the scenes. And even helped to be able to resolve any and all minor issues that may have occurred. We would and have recommended Michael Edwards to anyone and everyone considering using a DJ (master of ceremonies) at their wedding. He made our night unforgettable and we will be forever grateful to Michael to an unimaginable extent. Thank You, Jenna and Bryant Nestico.

We hired DJ James DiNanno for our wedding in May. He was so easy to work with and really understood our style and what we wanted for our wedding. I'm still getting rave reviews about the DJ at our wedding! Also, I felt the cost for the service was very reasonable. We got a quote the day before for double what AllStar was charging so I felt very comfortable with their pricing. My only complaint is that I was asked twice to pay the final balance before it was actually due (according to our contract it was due 2 weeks before the date). Other than that, I had a wonderful experience!

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

Our office staff is famous for "reminder calls" when song lists, wedding forms or final balances are nearly due and the busy brides are often grateful that we are helping them remember. If you received 2 such calls, the first was most likely the call we routinely place 6 weeks before a wedding, as a reminder to return completed wedding information forms, which are due then. At that time, we'll often mention that the final balance will be due 2 weeks before the wedding, but never that it should be sent now. The idea is to help brides who often get overwhelmed in dealing with so many vendors, timelines and details as their big day approaches. The second call is only placed when a final balance is actually due and has not yet been received. Sorry if it was bothersome, but we're delighted that everything else was perfect! Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks to AllStar for helping to make ours an allstar wedding! Josh Wiseman was our DJ and we knew from the start that he was our guy. I feel that Josh connects very well with the guests without being overbearing or cheesy. He is an excellent emcee and made sure that everything flowed beautifully, in sync with the other vendors. The music and dancing was AWESOME! Not only was he reading the crowd and getting everyone involved, Josh put in the extra effort to provide us with music that had an updated twist (Gagnam Style/2 Legit 2 Quit remix was EPIC). The entrance music was also prepared perfectly and Josh didn't miss a thing. So happy with the service he provided, for his knowledge and advice, and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or event.

We also had Ashley McPherson do our uplighting: INCREDIBLE! She was also friendly and professional and worked to change the lighting along with the music/mood in the room. We loved the look of our venue and decor, and Ashley's uplighting really made it stand out. She went the extra mile to visit our venue and take pictures, giving advice about how many lights we'd need and where to place them. These uplights actually wash the entire room in color...doesn't have that flashlight-looking effect like I've seen at other weddings (which we did not want and would've been a total waste of money).

Thanks again to AllStar for their great service!

What can we say... Grey Ryan was the DJ for our May 18th wedding and he was a dream to work with. We had an outdoor wedding and requested movie theme tunes as out cocktail hour music and then 70's and 80's for the reception. Greg blew away our guests with the cocktail hour music and kept everyone dancing from start to finish EVERYONE at our wedding was on their feet dancing for the majority of the night. He read them just right and we cant thank him enough for making our wedding so perfect!

AllStar Entertainment and Uplighting completely transformed our wedding into an unforgettable experience for us AND our guests! We had so many of our guests (and staff at the wedding) asking who the dj was because he was amazing! Since the wedding I have given several people Michael Edwards' name and strongly recommended this company. The dance floor was packed all night, and Michael listened to our must play list, as well as our "do not play list". Our consultations were fun and Michael gave us great recommendations for intro songs, etc that we would never have been able to come up with on our own! Everything was handled professionally and we felt that we were in good hands.

In regards to the Uplighting, we just can't say enough! Ann transformed the space into beautiful and colorful light, changing the lighting with songs, creating different moods throughout the night. The uplighting during the ceremony was subtle and beautiful, and completely complimented the floral arrangements. We are so glad that we decided to use Uplighting!

Allstar Entertainment and Uplighting is a wonderful company and we would strongly recommend their DJ and Lighting professionals for anyone who wants their wedding to be absolutely amazing! I never realized how important a great DJ is, and Allstar provides so much more than just playing music. Michael kept the wedding moving, paying close attention to the timeline and subtley letting us know what we should do next. Professional services like this are priceless!

"Your DJ is the best I've ever heard!" I lost track of how many guests (and staff) at our wedding made this comment to my husband and I. From the first time we met with Michael Edwards from Allstar Entertainment, we knew that our wedding entertainment was going to be amazing. He led us through the timeline of our special day, taking into consideration several special circumstances that we presented. He asked insightful questions and helped us to create playlists, introduction songs, and several special moments that I would never think to include.

On our wedding day, everything that we discussed was executed flawlessly and with a perfect mix of professionalism and fun! Every song on our "must play list" was played, and Michael assessed the crowd to figure out which songs would be loved. The dancefloor was packed all night! I had so many guests tell me that it was the most fun weding they had ever been to and I thank Michael for that!

In terms of the uplights, Ann did a wonderful job, creating the most beautiful atmosphere during the ceremony and reception. She was there all night, customizing the uplights to different songs, creating moods with the lighting, and transforming our event space into one that looked magazine worthy! The uplights were so gorgeous and I am so pleased that we had Allstar for them as well.

There are not enough words to describe what a wonderful job DJ. Torres did at our wedding. But it all started with Michael, he was so easy to work with, a pleasure to talk to and was willing to work with us any way possible (we are an out of state couple and had issues with having to meet). One of the most important things for us, was the fact that we are bilingual (Spanish, American)and had a very mixed wedding, we wanted to be able to enjoy both of our cultures equally and provide a great time to all of our guests; that's precisely what DJ Torres did and then some!! he captured our taste perfectly (from salsa, merengue, to rock, oldies) ALL of our guests loved the music and his entertainment, there was not one problem the entire night, he mixed all types of music perfectly and had people dancing to music they never saw themselves dancing to (I'm quoting form a guest) he even gave little dance lessons. What I loved the most about him (there are may things) was how happy he looked, he truly looked like he was enjoying himself and loved what he was doing, its good to see strangers care for what's important to you, his helper was the same way, he had a smile all night long. The lights were PERFECT the colors were what we wanted and its was super easy to change things. All in all I would work with All Start Entertainment again in a hear beat!! we would not change a thing about the whole process and the actual wedding day!

We loved working with you, Karen... thanks for entrusting us (and AllStar DJ Josh Torres) with your bi-lingual wedding. We feel great personal satisfaction when we can use the right music mix and a great MC to bring together two different families and create a unified "once-in-a-lifetime" event!

DJ Greg Ryan rocked our wedding last weekend (4/27/13)! Allstar entertainment was a breeze to work with; they were very accommodating, on-top of their game, and worth every penny! My husband and I hired Allstar about a year ago, and were able to meet with them in person to discuss all the general stuff, about a month before the wedding, Allstar, and DJ Greg reached out to us to touch base about more specific information. Allstar truly listens to their customers, and delivers their vision to a T. I have to say that my everyone of our friends and family members had an absolute blast and there were definitely a few dance-offs! So fun! I would give Allstar and DJ Greg my highest recommendation to anyone planning a wedding or important party!

This past weekend we had our wedding at Hawthorne Hotel in Salem, MA and used All Star for uplights. From the get go, the process was very smooth and they were very responsive. We scheduled a visit to their office in Andover and saw the demo of the wireless LED uplights and were impressed. Michael E and Holly were very nice and upfront about everything. There was no pressure either. They worked with us on our budget and we came to an acceptable and reasonable price for 20 lights. They were very eager to provide lighting for our venue as they really loved the place and hadn't worked there in awhile.

Our lighting technician for the night was Michael W and he was amazing! We talked the week before and went over our design ideas. We wanted to be sure that the lighting during the dinner hour did not overwhelm the already beautiful ballroom and Michael did just that. He also made recommendations for lighting for our first dance which turned out to be great. For the rest of the night, we told him to let loose and proceed at will.

On the day of event, Michael came up to us just before entering the room and asked us if we were satisfied which we were. The lighting was awesome! Many friends came up to us telling us how cool they were. The whole night we got exactly what we wanted.

On a personal level, Michael W came through for us. During our dinner there was a break for the band and they played music through an iPod. Well the playlist ended before the band returned leaving no music playing. We looked over the room for a band member, coordinator, or server to contact, but no one seemed to notice nor was available. Then we saw Michael W walking over to the band to tell them while giving us a nod. Michael W just noticed it on his own and took it upon himself to help us out. This told us that he did not just think of this as a job but as someone who cares and would be there to help you out. We were so impressed.

If you want lighting for your wedding, use All Star!

When we first started looking for a DJ for our wedding, my now husband found a bundle package that we decided could save us alot of money that we could use on other things for the wedding. after signing with the "other" dj, we went home and i started googling the company and the dj... immediatly i started reading terrible reviews of the djs being "no call no show." after having a wedding panic attack, i started researching other DJs and came upon Anthony Arone of Allstar Entertainment and Uplighting. He immediatly took all my worries and fears away. To me, a DJ can either make or break your wedding. And holy crap did he make it!!! We met a couple of times before the wedding, Anthonys personallity and love for what he does really shined through!
The day of the wedding Anthony came down to see me before the ceremony and again put me at ease that everything was going to be great!!
During the reception a few things had to change due to my family member not feeling well, none of the guests noticed the change thanks to Anthony transitioning the songs with ease.
One of my favorite moments of the whole wedding, my Five year old little boy wanted to sing me a song in front of everyone at the reception, Anthony happily handed over the mic and put a spot light on my little guy and he sang to his mama on her wedding day!

By the end of the whole wedding experiance, not only did i feel completly confident with handing my wedding day over to Anthony to keep it running amazingly, but i feel like he made our wedding the day we always dreamed it would be!! I highly recommend Anthony to anyone thats asks! Everyone kept coming up to us and saying what a great job he did and where did we find him!!!!
Thanks again Anthony! Our day wouldnt have been as amazing without you!!!!

My husband and I chose Allstar for our DJ and uplighting needs and were very satisfied with the service we got. From meeting to discuss DJ and Lighting services, to the actual wedding day, everything was flawless.

When we first met with Michael, he really took the time to figure what kind of reception we wanted, and who would be the best DJ for the job. He recommended Josh to us and we couldn't be happier that he did. Josh was excellent to work with. His knowledge and experience in the wedding indutry is so valuable. Many couples don't even know where to start when it comes to reception music, and the flow of the actual day, so it really helps to have someone who is on top of their game. We met with him about a week before the wedding, and he was able to put our minds at ease about our song selections and the type of vibe we wanted that night. My husband and I wanted to dance all night and we wanted the dance floor packed. That is exactly what we got. We didn't sit down once.

Lighting- Allstar really came through for us, providing us with extra lights just days before our reception, knowing we would need them with the size of the venue and amount of tables we had. They really know what the customer needs, and they never try to 'sell' you more than you want. Both DJ Josh and Ashley, our lighting tech, showed up dressed for the occasion too, which really fit the feel of the venue. Allstar was truly professional and a pleasure to work with. I would 100% recommend them to and bride, and would definitely use them again.

Our DJ James DiNanno was awesome. All I can say is that my entire experience with AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting was positive. James was very professional the whole time. He promptly retured all phone calls and emails and made me feel relaxed and confident that our wedding would be one to remember. During the reception he absolutely tore it up, people were dancing the entire time. He takes the time to get to know you and the people coming to your wedding, and customizes the perfect game plan to keep the party rolling without missing any of the intimate details that are so important. Everyone had a great time, I would highly recommend ALLStar Entertainment & UpLighting!

My Husband and I hired AllStar Entertainment for our Wedding DJ. We chose Josh Wiseman And couldn't be happier with the results. Josh was amazing to work with. He knows his music and gave us great suggestions. The music for our wedding was very important to us. We got married on New Years Eve and we needed to have amazing music for such an exciting night. Josh came through for us. The night was wonderful and everyone danced the night away! I would reccomend Josh and AllStar to anyone looking for a Wedding DJ. Or for any occasion. Guests of our wedding are still commenting on how great the music was! Thank you Josh, a million thank yous! You will always be a part of our wedding memories.

We had Brian McCarthy for our New Years Eve wedding, which turned out to be so much fun, largely due to the professionalism of Brian. To sum it up; he was absolutely awesome...We were both very busy and stressed planning the wedding, and Brian was so easy to deal with. We simply told him the type of music we like and answered a few questions he had concerning the ceremony, and then he pretty much ran with it. He played a really good balance of music, and even had a few tricks up his sleeve he didn't tell us about, that turned out to be a real hit on the day of the wedding...I 100% reccomend Brian if you are looking for a DJ.

We met Josh 1 year before our wedding. During that time he was available to me whenever I had a question. The week of our wedding we had a 1 hour phone consult to finalize music selections. He played custom mixes so that we could pick unique and energetic intro songs for us and our bridal party. The night of the wedding Josh delivered. His appearance, demeanor and approach was extremely professional. He checked in with my husband and I, as well as my parents, throughout the evening to make sure that everything was running smoothly and that we had no concerns. He read our guests well and played the perfect repertoire of songs. We wanted a party and that's exactly what Josh gave us. Our guests were on the dance floor until the end. People are still talking about what a great time it was and how much fun they had. We would strongly recommend Josh!

Being the father of the Groom you get to sit back and take the wedding in. When Mike and Katie told us they had hired AllStar Entertainment I knew the wedding was going to be a hit. Michael Edwards who I had hired to provide his services for our corporate Christmas Parties was able to get 100 or more non dancing electricians and their wives out on the dance floor for the entire evening a task that I thought was unattainable, well, he did it again Mike and Katies wedding was a hit. The entire hall was rocking and to get MIke's Papa up on the dance floor at 85 years old I could see that AllStar Entertainment has not settled for less over the years. My hat goes off to Michael Edwards and his staff for providing Mike and Katie and all of their guests with a wonderful evening of entertainment and awesome state of the art lighting. Michael good luck in the future and keep up the good work....

AllStar Entertainment did an amazing job. Despite the big age difference between our friends and our relatives, DJ Tommie Sheehan was able to folks of all ages out on the dance floor. I appreciate him handling a last minute song change for our last dance. I know I had a blast and so did my guests.

I was absolutely stunned (in a good way) when he played "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy" dedicated from me to my groom -- in his black Stetson hat. That hat was just for a cute photo opp that he decided to wear it out onto the floor. (My mom asked me why I didn't tell her about the dedication -- but I couldn't, because it was all Tommie -- the consummate professional instinctively knew it would be a great song choice.) He had no way of knowing my girlfriends and I used to dance to that song at the bar years ago when we were single and looking! Great call LOL

Also, none of my friends had uplighting at their weddings. Andrea transformed a pretty venue into a magical place. Her color matches were dead-on and so subtle I never noticed the lights changing. We got compliments on the lighting -- it was so cool.

Also, I knew our wedding was in good hands as Tommie and Andrea worked together seamlessly.

My uplighting services were absolutely worth the money and more. When I spoke to my uplighting specialist she had concerns that there were not enough lighting fixtures in my contract to give the effect we were both envisioning. She said she would be talking to Mike at AllStar and see what she could do. The very next day I received a call from Mike who told me he was sorry to have caused me any worry and stress as I was told at my consultation that the 20 in my contract would be enough. He included 5 extra fixtures at no extra cost to me. That's customer service!

The room looked absolutely amazing. I really cannot express how important uplighting a space as big and sometime stark as the Worcester Art Museum is. Without the lighting it simply would not have been the same wedding. It looked so beautiful. I received so many compliments about how gorgeous the space and lighting looked and I have All Star to thank.

From the start of the DJ process with AllStar Entertainment me and my wife knew we made the correct choice. AllStar Entertainment are very professional, explained that they were not just a DJ, but almost a wedding planner as they want to know every detail of the wedding to ensure the wedding went smoothly. Our DJ was Joshua Wiseman and his name explains it all as he is the "man"!! Josh was very professional, freindly and kept the dance floor packed all night. We had a wide range of ages at our party and every single person told my wife and I that Josh was awesome and it was one of the best weddings they have been to in a while. Throughout the night Josh made sure that my wife and I were happy, made sure that he was on the same page with the wedding reception coordinator and most importantly made sure that our photographer was ready and available to take all important photos (i.e. cake cutting and first dances). My wife and I have been to numerous weddings prior to ours and I must say that no other DJ performed these added value services that Josh performed. My wife and I were very happy with Josh and with no hesitation we would refer him to anyone who is looking for a DJ.

I highly recommend All Star Entertainment and DJ Greg Ryan. From start to finish the owner Mike Edwards was very professional and great to work with. We planned an outdoor ceremony, and decided the morning of the wedding to have the ceremony indoors. Mike answered his phone at 9am on Saturday and said it would be taken care of. DJ Greg Ryan showed up early, setup indoors several systems, and was ready to go. Super nice guy who really was able to get the party going, without being intrusive to older guests. I was responsible for the DJ and made the right decision to choose All Star.

We hired DJ James D for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. Guests young and old raved about him in the days following our wedding. He played just the right type of music early on to get the older crowd out there as well as the younger people. As the night wore on and the party really started picking up, the music got more and more recent, exactly how we wanted it. James knew exactly what we wanted after only our first meeting and we knew we could trust him to play the right type of music without giving him a do and do not play list.

Throughout the entire process, from the first meeting until well after the wedding ended, James was extremely professional and accommodating.

The only way to prove our utmost satisfaction with James' work would be to hire him again....and in fact, we did! We are proud to say that James will be the DJ at my wife's sisters wedding in June 2013. We can't wait to dance all night again!!

PETER HEALY IS AMAZING. Peter was the dj at our wedding in Amherst a few weeks ago. He was more than accomodating with all of our requests and kept checking in on us during the reception to make sure everything was going well. It wasn't an issue for him to travel to Amherst either and was there prompt and set up right when he promised. Our entire wedding party was on the dance floor the ENTIRE night and people started to boo when he announced that the first bus was leaving. Overall Peter helped make the night memorable and I would recommend him to everyone!

Two years ago, Michael Edwards was the DJ at my aunt and uncle's wedding. Because of him, the reception was a blast! When my husband and I got engaged last year, he, of course, was our first choice.

We were impressed by Michael ever since we had our first meeting. He asked us he right questions to get a feel for who we are as a couple and what music we wanted. We trusted him to create the perfect wedding environment.

Michael provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The ceremony music was ABSOLUTELY beautiful and perfectly timed. The cocktail hour music fit the mood of the room. The reception, of course, was better than I could have imagined it being. He truly created the perfect wedding atmosphere that we hoped to have. He literally got EVERYONE to dance.

After the wedding, I can't even tell you the number of people who told me they had a blast dancing for hours. I, personally, spent the entire night on the dance floor.

Our wedding was perfect thanks to Michael. My husband and I couldn't be any happier with the service he provided and would highly recommend AllStar Entertainment to any future bride and groom!

Picking the right dj was very importsant to us, and was very stressful until we came across Joshua Wiseman. He met personally with us and during our meeting he made us feel that we had nothing to worry about, except to enjoy ourselves!! During the wedding he delivered everything we wanted and more!!! Josh's experience with music made our wedding!! We are grateful to have had the honor of allowing him to make it happen.

AllStar Entertainment and Uplighting was by far the best vendor I worked with during my wedding planning experience and resulted in my greatest satisfaction on my wedding day. Peter Healey, our DJ, was absolutely wonderful throughout the planning process and exceptional before and during our wedding reception. His attention to detail was astonishing and throughout the night I got felt as though he wanted my wedding to be the best wedding ever! I could not believe the number of comments I received from our guests and even the even staff complimenting both his professionalism and expertise as a DJ. When we told Peter at our initial meeting that we wanted music played that would appeal to the varying ages of our guests, I didn't know what to expect, but Peter delivered an excellent arrangement of music and got everyone at our reception up and dancing. I cannot thank him enough for creating such a fantastic atmosphere for us to celebrate.

In addition to AllStar Entertainment's superb DJ services, Andrea Duvall provided the uplighting for our reception. Upon our initial meeting at AllStar we intended on simply hiring a DJ, but after seeing Andrea's work, I just couldn't resist. Now I am so glad that we were able to have her there because she is the absolute BEST!!!! After looking through my wedding photos, both amateur and professional, I just cannot imagine what they would look like without the soft glow of vibrant colors in the background. She not only coordinated the initial reveal colors to compliment and coordinate with my wedding colors, but she then varied the colors throughout the night complimenting each slow dance or party anthem with an appropriate blend or burst of color. I will be forever grateful to Andrea for giving me this priceless gift captured in each of my photos.

I would absolutely recommend both Peter and Andrea for any wedding. Their expertise and professionalism exceed expectations and their final products will leave you stunned!

We first saw Josh at a wedding we attended and were impressed with him then. When our daughter was preparing to get married we suggested Josh as an option. She checked out his reviews and videos and decided he was the best choice. Josh took the time to meet with the bride and groom and get a feel for both them and the crowd anticipated at the wedding. He listened to the bride and groom's thoughts and made some suggestions which proved invaluable. When the day of the event came he was ready for anything that came his way. We had 180 guests ranging in age from early 20s to people in their 80s and Josh had everyone up on the dance floor together all night. The dancing started before dinner was served, and Josh just took his lead from the crowd allowing everyone to really enjoy themselves, while at the same time making sure the all wedding formalities got their proper attention. He worked very well with the bride and groom as his counsel and was the driving force behind a great time. We had a couple of performances by a Greek band during the evening which he readily incorporated into the evenings festivities, while making sure that all dimensions of the crowd remained active participants in the activities. We have had many inquiries about who we used for a DJ from our guests and can't give Josh enough praise for his skills and effort to make our daughter's wedding a huge success.

Our guests are still talking about how they wish the party kept going all night long and how great the lighting was as it changed during the night to match the mood.

AllStar Entertainment was a pleasure to work with right from the start. The owner, Michael Edwards, was the DJ at my friend's wedding in 2010 and we thought he was great, so decided to look into booking him. He was already booked for our wedding date, so he paired us with one of AllStar's other "platinum level" DJs, Peter Healey. We LOVED him! We felt so confident that he would provide great entertainment and we were right. From the ceremony music, to cocktail hour, to the reception, he exceeded our expectations. Not only was the service great on the wedding day, but the AllStar staff was super helpful and responsive leading up to the wedding as well. If anything wasn't handled within a day or so, Michael Edwards would call me personally to ensure it was sorted out, which really impressed me.

The same feedback applies for the photo booth, also booked through AllStar. The two attendants were nice, we have a funny scrapbook and a USB with all the photos, and the guests loved it.

Both DJ Peter Healey and AllStar's photo booth were worth every penny. If there's a wedding vendor to really invest in, it's great entertainment like AllStar!

There was a perfect mix of music for all ages, and he knew exactly when to play each song. He also did our ceremony and did a flawless job.

Josh was so easy to work with as he immediately knew exactly what we were looking for with each request we had. I have gotten several compliments on how good our DJ was, and I could not have asked for anything more!!

Anthony Arone DJed our wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased. Picking a DJ is super stressful. A DJ can make or break a wedding, yet it's really hard to evaluate your options. As soon as we sat down with Anthony for our pre-wedding meet up, we knew we were in good hands.

Anthony has a big personality, loves people, loves what he does, and is willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy. First, he did an awesome job emcee'ing - when he spoke he brought energy to the room, but he didn't go overboard as some DJs do. It was just right. The music he picked was awesome and he kept the dance floor packed all night.

I'd highly recommend Anthony and AllStar Entertainment. You won't go wrong.

Casey did an awesome job and was also great to work with. The uplighting looked amazing, and looked so beautiful that night and in the photos. We would recommend All Start Entertainment for any event.

Josh Wiseman was the DJ for our backyard tented wedding in Cambridge and he was amazing! Great to work with leading up to the wedding, and did an amazing job the night of the wedding playing songs to get and keep people on the dancefloor all night long. He was also very responsive to our requests to do things a certain way, and to make adjustments at the last minute. HIGHLY recommend!

I am so happy I chose Allstar Entertainment for my wedding! We were paired with DJ James DiNanno, and he was fantastic. I liked him immediately upon meeting him, it's very obvious he cares about what he does!

During the planning process he was very positive, enthusiastic and encouraging, and made us feel good about the choices we made for the music.

Our wedding was at a pretty unique venue. A ceremony site up a dirt road on an hill, a reception in a large oddly shaped Ski Lodge. The sound was amazing. Heading up the hill to get married I could hear the music floating down and it sounded perfect. In the reception hall it also sounded awesome! I pretty much gave James free rein to play whatever he wanted that would get the crowd dancing, and he did! I don't think the dance floor was ever empty (I know i spent a good part of the night out there!).

I also really appreciated how attentive James was. He smoothly took care of a last minute intro change, and after the bouquet toss, i'd initially planned to do the whole garter toss thing as well, but at the last second decided to skip it. i didn't want to bring the dance party to a halt! I barely had to say anything to James and he understood and went right along with the music so no one even noticed!

We had the best night of our lives and couldn't have done it without James and Allstar!

We used Josh Wiseman with All Star Entertainment for our wedding last weekend after he DJ’d my brother’s wedding in 2010 and we absolutely fell in love with him. We couldn’t have asked for a nicer, more accommodating and more professional DJ, and not to mention fun! We gave him a short list of songs that we wanted played and left the rest up to him to read the crowd and play things that would keep everyone dancing and having a good time. He did not disappoint! He had people on the dance floor the entire night, of all ages (including himself for a lot of it!!) and we danced for 6 hours non-stop! I have been to a lot of weddings over the past several years and in my opinion Josh is by far the best in the business! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. Thank you Josh for helping to make our wedding a night to remember! You rock!

From the moment the guest entered the room until the very last song James did an incredible job. We could not have asked for a better DJ. He knew exactly what songs to play to get our guest up and out of their seats and exactly how to get everyone excited and into each event that happened at our wedding. Our one request was make sure the dance floor was packed and there was not one moment it wasn't! He made our wedding everything we could of ever dreamed of and more. Every one of our guest have been ranting about how amazing James was and how it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We truly cant thank him enough for what he did for us and how special he made our day!

Everyone at all star was amazing and very easy to work with and made the process so easy for us! The up lighting to the photo booth were perfect and everything that made our wedding a huge hit came from all star...thank you to each one of you for making our dream wedding come true and a night we will never forget!

I can't say better things about AllStar Entertainment. They provided music for our ceremony and reception and uplighting for our reception. Our DJ, Anthony Arone, went above and beyond to work with us on our playlists and even made a CD for my mom. Anthony made the night incredibly fun and he reads the crowd very well - his song choices were spot on. The upllighting was very tasteful and changed with the music, but not in a distracting way. Overall great vendor.

My fiance and I used AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting for our July wedding, and we could not have been happier. From Day 1, we were very impressed with the agency’s professionalism. We would also like to acknowledge Andrea Duvall, one of the managers at the company, as she was very responsive to our initial calls/emails. Michael Edwards, the owner and veteran DJ, was also 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, Brian 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, 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 knew exactly what song to play by "feeling" the crowds 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!

We started our search like any other engaged couple. We wanted a company that could provide a quality of service but also a creative, clear, and thorough way of helping us create our dream wedding. That is exactly what we found in AllStar Entertainment. My husband and I were musicians together in the Boston & Los Angeles area. Music was an integral part of our life and our big day. To save our friends and wedding party from having to work that day, we opted to hire a DJ and a few musicians for our ceremony. Deborah Boykan and her group from BSO were our musicians and they learned Icelandic music for our event, so they get an A+! (Staralfur by Sigur Ros). They sounded wonderful. We are so grateful to them. Deborah was amazing about communicating with us through the whole process, it was refreshing. Tommie Sheehan was our DJ. He really came through not only as a DJ but as a true jazz cat. He played guitar during our ceremony, he transcribed music for us and Deborah's group. OH WAIT! There's more... he played piano for our cocktail hour AND he DJ'ed the reception! This man almost single handedly provided ALL of the music for our wedding! One Hire! This is a fantastic concept for two people who have been managing and performing in a 7 piece Folk/Funk/Rock Band for the past 5 years. Tommie is awesome!! The people at AllStar really love what they do and it shows. We never doubted this company for a second. From the moment I first watched their video consultations until I clicked the link for this review they provided an unbeatable service that put our minds at ease and got us even more excited for our big day! We got high quality musicians and client attention for a great value. They all come highly recommend by us!
The All Star office is right in beautiful downtown Andover, MA. We recommend going by to check out their studio. It helped us envision our big day. We had lights under every table in the room, on a beautiful day in July in World Trade Center of Boston. Our photographers were in heaven and it was the BEST day of our lives! AllStar has educated and talented lighting artists who will give you the perfect setting for some of the most important photos of your life! We highly recommend the use of their services. Andrea & Ashley are the best!

We had our wedding in July and worked with Anthony from AllStar Entertainment. If we had to sum it up with one word ... phenomenal!!! He was great in the planning stages and went over how the introductions were going to flow, what songs we wanted, what songs we didn't want, and really tailored it to our style. During the reception, I don't think there was a single minute where the dance floor was empty. Anthony really does such a great job of reading the crowd and keeping the party going. So many of our guests told us that this was the most fun they have had at a wedding and we have Anthony to thank for that. This isn't the first time we have worked with Anthony, and whenever we need a DJ, he is the first that we think of.

All i can say is WOW!! From the first time i contacted Allstar Entertainment and Uplighting they were amazing, Friendly and so professional! I personally work with Andrea! Andrea was so kind, sweet, and was just as excited about my wedding as i was! Allstar was also every respectful of my budget! There recommend what would work best with our space and then what would work best with our space and the budget!
One week before the wedding i realized we had some money left over to put towards the uplighting and i was able to budget in the full recommended lighting.... with only one week before our wedding Allstar was able to add more lighting and there did not give me a hard time about last minute changes!
As for the day of your wedding, Andrea was not just on time but she was early!!! Our rooms ( we had one large room and two smaller rooms that they up lighted for us) went from the soft romantic feel that i had asked for our ceremony and cocktail hour to night club feel fun bright colors for our reception dance club! By Far our wedding would not have had the same impact and feeling as did without Andrea and Allstar! Thank you so much for making our day so special! i 100% recommend Allstar Entertainment and Uplighting for all your wedding needs! Super Friendly and professional

After talking to some friends who had used him and reading some reviews, we chose Josh Wiseman of AllStar Entertainment as the DJ for our wedding. We were blessed to have done so - Josh and AllStar were very easy to work with, did everything we asked and more, provided us with so much knowledge and ideas, and basically made our wedding be a huge success. Josh was professional, creative, fun, energetic, and just an awesome DJ. The music played was perfect. There was the right blend of slow music, dance music, and yet he managed to play the songs we wanted. The day after our wedding, many of my friends and relatives (ranging in age from early 20's to their 80's) told us how much they liked the music. I would definitely use Josh for any function and recommend anyone planning a wedding to do so. We could not be happier with Josh and AllStar. Thanks for making our day awesome.

Peter also did our ceremony music since we were married outdoors at our venue. It went perfectly!

Peter was willing to meet before the wedding, but after talking to him in such detail on the phone, I knew we didn't have to meet. Everything was going to be perfect because he is just THE BEST!

Peter was with us from the beginning until the end of our wedding night. He was always cueing us for the next song and asking us about anything that popped up.

Peter was a huge part of making our night so much fun. We couldn't have asked for a better performance!

Special Thank you to DJ Joshua Wiseman for making our wedding day so special for myself and my bride. When we first met Joshua we knew he would have the energy and professionalism to keep our guests entertained and having fun all night! It all started with my 3 favorite songs of all time during salad which ended up packing the dance floor before dinner was served! My mother will not stop talking about the Foxwoods Themed Centerpiece Giveaway Game and how much fun my family had with it, the photos explain it all! Couldn't have asked for more, especially when we all chanted "One more song" and Josh had us all singing on the dance floor... Awesome. Thanks Again Josh!

Brian McCarthy from AllStar Entertainment is hands down the Greatest!
We decided to check out allstar entertainment though a discount by using another vendor. After meeting with them I knew they were a class act. We sat with Brian a few days before the wedding and we could tell this was not his first rodeo, so I had very high expectations going into the reception. He blew those expectations (and everyone else's at the wedding) away! Everyone danced the entire time and the floor was packed until the end of the last song. Brian is a true professional and a true entertainer! At least 15 people have asked where I found him and they can't wait to book him for their next event. He is very professional and knows how to have fun with all ages from young to old. He is worth every penny!

We sat down to have an interveiw with him and after getting a feel of our personalities and how we wanted our wedding to go... he set us up with James DiNanno. THE BEST DJ OUT THERE. My husband and I have been to quite a few weddings and seriously(not just because it was our wedding) James is ..hands down the most talented DJ we have heard. He knew what we wanted out of our wedding and made it happen. I can't even begin to say how many compliments we got on the DJ and music choice. James gave 110% from start to finish and the energy was certainly felt! Don't have a wedding without James!

Josh Wiseman was AMAZING!!!!!
I hired AllStar Entertainment to DJ my wedding. After a 10 minute conversation with Michael (the owner) he set us up with Josh Wiseman. Immediately meeting with Josh we hit it off. Since my wedding all I have heard from my guests are "Your dj was amazing," "he had us dancing all night and I never sat down." This was exactly the type of wedding my husband and I were looking for. The dj is everything at a wedding, not only did Josh manage the music, but he also made sure to coordinate the wedding party, and was in constant contact with the reception coordinator so that everything ran smoothly. Prior to the wedding Josh was also accessible via phone calls and texts. He offered advice and suggestions and also was receptive to our ideas. There are truly not enough Thank Yous that I can offer to Josh for making our wedding such a success.

AllStar Entertainment was one of the best vendors we dealt with in planning our wedding (and our favorite!). We HIGHLY recommend James DiNanno. Not only was he professional, responsive, and attentive to our vision, but he REALLY knows how to keep a party going from start to finish. One thing I’ve learned through the planning process as well as being a guest at other weddings, is the DJ has to know how to read the crowd and base what songs are played on that. It’s obvious James knows what he’s doing because our dance floor was packed the moment we were introduced until the lights came on and it was time to go! We received so many compliments from guests of ALL ages. DJ-ing is truly an art, and James has mastered this with ease. Even that night we were approached by several people about booking James for their weddings! Book him for your next event – you won’t be sorry!!!

First of all, I want to preface this review by saying that my bridal party (myself and the groom included) were pretty out of control from the beginning of our reception until the after party ended at 4am - so we must not have been very easy to deal with.
AllStar provided our DJ, photobooth, and uplighting services at the Marriott in Quincy, MA. Our DJ, Josh Wiseman, was awesome - there was never a lull on the dancefloor, no awkward songs, and no cheesy line dances...he played all of our favorites and kept the party going strong until the very end. We never gave him any real instructions or a play/do-not-play list...we left our music in his hands and he did a fantastic job :)
Also, the uplights looked AMAZING and the photobooth was hoppin' all night long - we have a ton of hilarious pictures that we'll probably display more freely than our formals! Every service provided by this company exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend them!

People I never in a million years thought would dance were sweating all night. My wedding was the best night of my life and I truly believe that Peter had a HUGE hand in that. I have a few friends who were engaged that came to my wedding and they have all asked me to give them Peter's contact information. AllStar is the way to go!

Wow! Todd DellaPorta was phenomenal! Todd was professional and kept our guests on the dance floor all night. Todd executed perfectly; he listened to my requests and was very accomodating. Todd has a can do attitude and came through with all the music I'd requested including the Portuguese and rock music.

Casey, our uplighting tech was brilliant! She worked well with Todd to coordinate the lighting in tune with the music. She maintained the appropriate ambiance all night whether it was coctail hour, dinner or dancing.

My concerns of whether the DJ and lights would be a failure were definitely eleviated the moment I walked into the venue. It was true perfection. I would definitely use these vendors again.

all I can say is A.W.E.S.O.M.E !!!!!!!!

Josh was extremely professional, easy going, and great to work with. A lot of the wedding music we were unsure of and Josh was right there to make suggestions based on what we liked.

The wedding was amazing and Josh was the man behind it. He did our ceremony music, our cocktail hour music and our reception. It was flawless. He didn't miss a beat! There wasn't a minute that the dance floor wasn't FULL.

I would HIGHLY recommend Josh to anyone and everyone. His outgoing personality and love of music really makes him the Amazing DJ that he is!

We used Allstar for three services: DJ, Lighting and the photo booth. Mike Edwards was amazing as the DJ - he kept the party going. We had many different types of music that we wanted played and Mike did a great job mixing everything in together. Everyone at the wedding are sill talking about what a great job he did. We can't thank him enough. He kept everything coordinated and is a true professional. The DJ is such an important part of the party and if I had to hire a DJ again - Mike would be it - hands down. Andrea Duvall did all of the lighting and it was absolutely beautiful and perfect. Andrea did such a great job and everything was so perfect - the lighting to ally changed the room and Andrea stayed throughout the entire night to make sure that the lighting was perfect. Thank you Andrea - we loved the lighting. Lastly, Allstar also provided the photo booth. Ken Gervais and team were awesome. The photo booth made the night. Everyone had such a blast in there and the photos were a riot. The guestbook was also quite funny. This was a great feature to have and really took the night to a whole new level. It was awesome. Allstar all around was awesome. Highly recommend them!! Thank you all.

Michael Edwards and his team provide a classy and professional service from beginning to end. I put an email in to Michael to get information because I had no where to start. He personally called me back instead of emailing me back and we talked for an hour about what i wanted in a dj and a wedding....before I even decided on what company. He waled me through the whole process. That was impressive from the start and then i met with my dj to see if he would be a good fit. I met with Joshua and we talked for almost 2 hours...again, before I even decided on using All Start. I decided that if they put this much time into me and my wedding before I even was paying them that I can only imagine the service I would receive when I did decide to go with them. They put me at ease (Im a bit of a control freak) and answered all of my questions whenever I had one throughout the whole year!

I had a New Years Eve wedding so it needed to be over the top! Joshua (dj) and Andrea (uplighting) did not disappoint. Andrea had never done lighting at the Millennium Hotel in Boston and it was an odd room and I wasn't sure if lighting was going to work. She assured me it would and found pictures and spoke with my wedding coordinator and advised I add more lights and I am so glad i did (got 20). I got so many compliments on the lighting and it by far made our wedding what it was! truly.

Joshua had the dance floor packed and did a new years eve countdown with confetti and also dealt with some unexpected toasts (that I approved) by my guests. He even changed the entrance song upon my request like two hours before the reception! He didn't just play music, he worked with all my vendors to make everything run smoothly. He was always making sure the bride and groom were happy as well.

The fact that the uplighting and music come in a package just made the planning that much easier. We wouldn't of been told "that was the best wedding i've ever been too" without All Star, Michael, Joshua and Andrea.

Our Dj, Todd DellaPorta, was professional, reliable, listened to our every wish, friendly on the mic, and kept EVERYONE on the dance floor all night. Knowing that the DJ you select can make or break your wedding, we were happy to see that we absolutley made the right decision. Outstanding! Our lighting technician, Andrea, was at our event all night to control lighting changes. The lighting changed beautifully according to the moment happening. Our wedding could not have been more prefect. My husband and I were totally at ease with these vendors. They walked us through every step of the preparation. Should we or any of our families need future DJ or uplighting services, Todd and Andrea from AllStar are our people. Many years of experience and expertise are apparent in the way this company runs it's business. I rate the AllStar team with 5 stars even though they actually deserve 10!

James DiNanno was our dj and he was excellent. I liked him from our 1st phone call and I knew my bride to be, Vanessa, was going to love him. He was very personable, kind of "sweet" is how my wife would describe him and a great listener. During our face-to-face meeting, he continued his great emphatic listening and reflection skills and made sure we were confident he could deliver a great experience for our guests.
His music library was spot on. It was rocking dance party all night. There was a birthday party in a nearby room and they wanted to crash our party because it was so bumping.

If I was to be constructively critical, I thought James played a couple of warm up songs that we hadn't discussed, that weren't necessary for our audience, and we had requested him play dance music in between courses / toasts, that was 1-2 songs too many. 1-2 songs lasting around 5 min would have been sufficient. I'll take some blame for not being more specific.

Michael Edwards was great and personable as an owner. This organization is super professional and worth the expense. You'll know from the moment you call and it will be reaffirmed during your face-to-face.

We were referred to All-Star b/c of Todd Dellaporta who did my friends wedding, but he was already booked for our date. He was awesome too.

All in all, I highly recommend them.

Michael Edwards is a DJ like no other. He has the experience you need in a great DJ - and he really cares!! We had a blast getting to know him, and having him MC or special day! He takes his job seriously, and that means we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing!
Andrea Duvall doesn't just provide UpLights - she is an artist! She bring a light show with her. Ending out night dancing under the stars was amazing! She highlights all the best parts of the room! People were blown away!

My daughter and son-in-law were married on 10/9/11 at Willowbend Country Club in Mashpee, Ma. and Michael Edwards of Allstar Entertainment was their extraordinary DJ. From the 1st time we met with Mike, we felt confident that he was a professional who would bring his very best to the reception...and he did. As soon as the formalities were out of the way, the dance floor was at capacity for the rest of the night. He read the crowd with pinpoint precision and kept the momentum going for the whole evening. Great sound...great songs...some personal touches and surprises...just the best of the best. Thanks, Mike

Want to know how good Josh from AllStar was? I flew him to San Francisco from Boston for my wedding. Josh has done over 15+ parties, weddings and other celebrations for my family and friends. We can't get enough of him.

I am pretty specific and picky when it comes to music. I'm always grabbing the mic, getting the crowd to sing a long and requesting the next song. I've had a vision in my head of how I wanted the music at my wedding reception to play out for about 5 years now. I was dead worried about getting any other DJ than Josh from AllStar. A lot of DJ's try to take over the show and make it about them. Not Josh. I gave him a list of about 120 songs segmented across the entire night. Him and I reviewed it several times. We both knew we couldnt play every single song I wanted but I had 100% trust in him.

Not once during the night did I have to go up and ask when my songs were going to come on or tell him to change anything. He had the dance floor packed the entire night. Honestly, there wasn't a person sitting down for over 3 hours. Every single person I spoke to in the coming months after the wedding said it was hands down the best dance floor they've ever been a part of. Josh was able to play music that everyone could enjoy - he never stuck on a certain segment too long. If he noticed some older people were dropping off after a few hit songs he would pull them right back in with some classics. It was honestly unreal. I wish I could relive the night again.

I am one of the most demanding people when it comes to music and he handled it like an absolute pro. I wouldn't have flown him out 3,000 miles if he wasn't! After my wedding all of my friends from Boston and the North Shore were requesting his info. I honestly can't think of ever having another DJ for any of my family events ever again.

If you don't believe me feel free to contact me at jbozarjian@gmail.com and I can give you even more details. I would vouch for Josh and AllStar Entertainment any day.

5 stars easily!

We had DJ Michael Edwards and uplighting that was provided by Andrea Duvall. DJ Michael Edwards is awesome, he's truly a professional DJ and works very closely with you to go over all the details. He's also very good at reading the crowd to help keep them up on the dance floor all night long! We had so many compliments on how great he was and how awesome the music was. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fun and professional DJ!
We also loved working with Andrea for the uplighting, she also works closely with you to personalize your wedding with colors and to set the tone for the different parts of the evening. She is really nice and professional. The uplighting really makes all the difference, it is a great enhancement well worth the money!

I chose to have Brian McCarthy from Allstar Entertainment as the DJ for my wedding and it was the best choice I could have made! He was absolutely amazing at creating the perfect atmosphere. Brian really got the crowd going, not only playing music but performing for the crowd as well. I also had a couple of rambunctious 6 year old girls at the wedding and Brian was so great with them. He let them get on stage and perform a Taylor Swift song! He even gave my niece the microphone to use! Everyone thought it was great - out of tune, but great :-)

I highly recommend Brian McCarthy because he is not simply a DJ. He is truly an entertainer. Brian knows how to have a good time and he knows how to make a bride happy. My husband and I got so many compliments at our wedding and after, everyone saying how much they loved our DJ. In fact, I know of several people that now want to hire him for their events! A bad DJ can ruin a wedding. A great DJ can make it unforgettable. Brian was worth every penny!! Our wedding was amazing and we have Brian to thank for that.

Allstar Entertainment, Michael Edwards was the DJ at our wedding last Month and did an amazing job. As all the reviews that I read before I decided on using them said, they got everyone on the dance floor and it was very true. My 86 grandmother even was dancing and had a blast. They really know how to read a crowd and keep the party going. We even had a few games that were introduced to us that night by the DJ and the crowd loved them as did we. We highly recommend Allstar Entertainment as they were very responsive, easy to work with and were on top of everything. A special thanks to Michael Edwards again for such a great job!!!!!!!!!!! We hope to be able to use them again in the future if the opportunity arises.

Michael Edwards was great to work with and spent at least 2 and 1/2 hours with my husband and I and daughter and son in law before we even booked with him. He is knowlegdable, professional, flexible and listens to what his clients want at their wedding. Our guests raved about the DJ and said it was one of the best weddings they have been to in years. Thank you Michael for making our daughter's wedding so much fun and very special.

All Star DJ and SPECIFICALLY Josh Wiseman as the DJ and Andrea as the uplighting coordinator blew me away! I won a contest and had the task of planning the entire wedding in 3 weeks without my fiancees help. I literally had to plan everything! The entertainment was really important to us so I looked for the best and I found it! Josh and I only talked a couple times before the wedding because I had so much going on but that's all he needed. The music was exactly as I had asked for the ceremony, the intros into the reception were awesome, and the reception itself was a blast. Josh did a great job keeping the party going when needed and having great background music when needed as well. My wife, along with many guests, commented on what a fantastic job he did. And the place looked awesome thanks to Andrea! Mike, the owner was a pleasure to deal with too and you can see the passion he has for what he does. Weekend warrior dj's are ok, but I promise you that they can't compare to guys like Josh and All Star DJ. If you can book them for your wedding or any other party, do it!

We had a fantastic experience with AllStar Entertainment. Choosing Peter Healey as our DJ was one of the best decisions we made. Peter was professional and so easy to work with. He did an INCREDIBLE job of keeping all our friends and family on the dance floor. There was never a lull on the dance floor, and we've had numerous guests comment on how much fun our wedding was because the music was so great.

Peter got everyone around the dance floor prior to us being announced, and after our first dance we had a 20 minute dance set which I think set the tone for the evening. People were enthusiastic, happy and that energy just carried throughout the entire night.

Peter is a true expert. He is willing to do what YOU want. We gave him a sampling of music that we liked and he went off of that. As I said, he made our wedding so much fun. I would hire him again in a second. If you want an enthusiastic DJ that will make your day exactly as you want it, then hire Peter Healey.

From the moment we were introduced at the reception he had the guest going! The dance floor was hopping ALL night long! People keep contacting me asking "who was that DJ?!?", and as one of my family members said "this was the best wedding I've been to in 10 years!!" (since the last Brian McCarthy wedding). Love, LOve, LOVE Brian!! Amazing job, sooooo much fun!! I cannot recommend him highly enough!!

I recently just had a wedding for my daughter in whom we used All Star Entertainment for both DJ and uplighting. I can honestly say that both the DJ and uplighting made the event. The DJ was able to read the crowd and got everyone dancing. He was so involved with the entire reception that everyone noticed his expertise. The DJ Michael Edwards was professional, enthusiastic, and caring to the brides needs. When I first walked into the venue I immediately noticed how the uplighting changed the entire venue. The uplighting was interchangeable in which at the end of dinner where everyone was dancing the lights changed based on the mood. My recommendation to future brides to be in to book Michael Edwards EARLY! He will only make your wedding that more marvelous! Thank you Michael!

The planning process and the execution were perfect! We were asked what we wanted and got exactly that and more!! Josh not only did the music at the reception but also the ceremony! He helped give us ideas and made our wedding a fun evening. All of our guests enjoyed themselves all the way through the night. Thank you for making our night everything we wanted and more!!

If you’re looking to have a great reception you need: great entertainment. Honestly, don’t look any Further then ALL STAR Entertainment. They provide you with amazing value for the money you pay (which isn’t overpriced compared to other DJ companies in the area!) professionalism, DJ’s who can actually read the crowd and enjoy what they do.
I first met with Mike in June of 2010, a year prior to our wedding. My husband was on the West Coast (as he is in the Navy) and I went to our consultation with my mom. Never in my life have I ever met a man who is so PROFESSIONAL, knows what he is doing and is genuinely excited and THRILLED to be doing what he does. He probably does 2-3 events (maybe even more!) a weekend, 52 weeks a year and he never gets tired, and can read a crowd immediately. I felt so comfortable with him right off the bat and knew he would be perfect for our wedding.
My now husband and I met with Mike about a week before our wedding. We are HUGE Boston Bruins fans and knowing that they had just won the Stanley Cup (Go B’s!!!!) We came with the idea to have our entrance song as the Bruins goal score song (Fog Horn/Zombie Nation) Mike was just as excited as we were to put together his own remix to this song for us (since you cannot actually get it on the internet!) Together we made a plan, and instead of giving Mike the songs we only wanted to hear—we trusted him to help set the mood of our wedding himself. He went ABOVE and BEYOND in doing this. We danced throughout the whole night, never ever stopping. Everyone was out on the dance floor—even our 80 year old grandmothers, aunts and uncles. The reception was amazing and you can thank Mike Edwards for playing a large role in this.
Mike, we really cannot thank you enough for all of the help and amazing entertainment you provided on July 2, 2011. I recommend you to everyone I know getting married because you truly are the best . I hope this review can give anyone looking a great insight on what you need in a quality DJ. AllStar and Mike Edwards—top notch!

I planned my wedding from long distance and had to choose all my vendors from 2,000mi away. I spoke with countless DJ's and kept feeling like they were pushing too hard, overselling too much and more interesting in making a dollar, rather than listening to our needs. I was near the end of my patience and ready to set up an ipod dock in lieu of a DJ when I contacted AllStar Entertainment on a recommendation from another wedding vendor. Michael Edwards was professional, helpful and went out of his way to make sure that we could work within our specific budget and have all our needs met. Our DJ was Nick Powers, who really pulled off a fun, lively reception and listened to all of our specific and sometimes quirky requests. When his contract time was up, we liked him so much, we had him stay overtime to keep the party going. Thank you to AllStar, Mike and Nick for making our wedding such a success.

We had the pleasure of working with AllStar Entertainment and, specifically, Peter Healey as our DJ. Peter provided music for our ceremony and also for our reception. From our first contact with Mike Edwards several months before the wedding all the way through our initial meeting with Peter and throughout the wedding day everything was perfect. I do not use that word loosely but I will use it with Peter and AllStar Entertainment. Peter told us that he would have everybody on the dance floor and having a great time for the entire evening. While I never doubted his experience or credentials, I will admit that I doubted any DJ's ability to do that. I was wrong. Quite literally, from the first dance at 5:30 until the last song at 11:30 Peter had people on the dance floor and having a great time. Without exception, every guest commented on what a great time they had and Peter was the Master of Ceremonies. A superb job done by a true professional.

We also engaged AllStar Entertainment for a video/photo booth at the reception. The attending staff was equally professional and added a great dimension to the reception by compiling a great collection of photos and videos made by our guests.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Peter Healey and AllStar Entertainment for your wedding (or any other event, for that matte). They are real professionals who know what they are doing. Their experience and skill make all the difference and were a huge ingredient in making our wedding a tremendous success.

I was COMPLETELY blown away by this company! I was lucky enough to have Michael Edwards be my DJ and Andrea Duvall take care of the beautiful uplights at my late June wedding in the daytime.

Honestly, dont think just because your wedding is during the day you cant have the uplightling. Andrea did a fantastic job making it work! I literally cried when I saw how beautiful my space was! Color makes the difference people!!! LOL

Next, there is the ever fun, wonderful Mr. Michael Edwards.. Let me just tell you that my son is autistic. Hes 7 years old and quite the character lol. Michael called me the Monday before my wedding and I had to tell him that my son has a fascination with microphones. Do you know he was nice enough to bring a mini microphone (obviously it wasnt hooked up) to let my son "play with". You will NOT find better service than that of someone who listens and cares about not only you but your family! That was just part of all the wonderful things he did. He also reminded the silly bride who forgot how to do the electric slide how the steps go. LOL Also taught me & my guests the Wild Wild West dance. Im a country girl can you tell. One more thing..guys dont screw up the trivia test ;)

I truly believe this was my smartest investment in our wedding. I love you guys and I highly recommend every bride hire you!!

We had a great time at this wedding... whenever our bride requests a lot of line dances (where other times such dances may actually be on the "don't play" list) we make sure that everyone knows the correct steps and gladly give a quick lesson if needed... each audience and situation is different... and at this one, the audience was very enthusiastic about dancing all afternoon!

Sound quality was perfect throughout and he rocked the party all night long. Really appreciate the fact he took the time and consideration to do just what we wanted, and as far as we are concerned he nailed it.

Our DJ, Jame DiNanno was simply amazing. I can't say enough good things about him. We provided with him some basic guidelines, but really just let him roll with it. James got people of all ages up and dancing and had the floor packed all night. Weeks after people were still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding! So a HUGE thanks to James for doing such a great job and if your looking for a DJ we would highly recommend him.

Mike Edwards was phenomenal. He had guests of all ages on the dance floor for the entire night. His collection of music seemed endless. He was always quick to respond when I had questions about something and always gave me very valuable and honest feedback. His professionalism is impeccable and I would recommend him for all types of events. I received so many compliments from my guests about how awesome he was. He played every single song I had asked him to play.

The uplighting staff ( Especially Andrea Duvall) is outstanding as well. They definitely know how to add that magic to the reception room. Andrea was very attentive to me the day of the wedding (i.e.: holding my bouquet for me during my first dance and offering to get anything i needed during the reception). She definitely went above and beyond!

If I were to rate All Star Entertainment and Uplighting from 1 to 10 ( 1 being horrible and 10 being the best), I give them a 15. All Star Entertainment and Uplighting, THANK YOU for making my wedding day AMAZING!!!

Peter met with us a few weeks before our wedding to get to know us and get an idea of what kind of music we were looking for. He really made us feel that we could relax and leave it to him manage the flow of events at the reception.
We indicated what songs we wanted for certain moments, but Peter did a great job choosing the dance music. Once he got the guests on the floor he kept them there. He also provided music for the cocktail hour that was audible but unobtrusive.
As promised, Peter kept the reception flowing smoothly, even when things didn't go exactly as planned (e.g. many more speeches than expected).
We and our guests were very impressed with Peter and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

We worked with Andrea Duvall at AllStar Entertainment & Uplighting for our May 14th wedding. Originally, we had no intention of hiring an uplighting vendor, my then fiance was really pushing for it.

After researching several vendors, we learned that Allstar uses only LED wireless uplighting units - this is really important as you don't want your reception room to overheat, or for guests to be tripping over thousands of wires.

We were absolutely thrilled with Andrea and her service. She worked closely with me to discuss our wedding colors and preferences - and she's a true artist. When we walked into our reception room, we couldn't believe the transformation. As the night went on, we experienced subtle classy changes in the lighting at critical points of the reception - i.e., our first dance, the father/daughter dance, and the cake cutting. Also, when the energy on the dance floor would heat up, so did our lights. It was so much fun.

Andrea also went over and above our expectations - she had a few extra uplights in her vehicle, so she included them at no extra charge. And she also took many photos of our reception and uploaded them to facebook the next day - this was how we got to see our first wedding photos.

I would highly recomend AllStar. Their rates were very competitive, and Andrea was just a joy to work with. She was truly someone you could envision grabbing a drink with after the big day! Plus, I wasn't a believer before our wedding, but the uplights make a tremendous impact on your photographers - definately a vendor to consider. If only we could find a way to incorporate uplights in our backyard too!

All Star Entertainment (specifically Michael Edwards) did an AMAZING job DJ'ing our wedding! Michael was very professional, organized, knowledgeable and flexible. He got people on the dancefloor right away and kept them there all night! Everyone was raving about the DJ and how the music was fantastic. So many people told me that it was the most fun they had had at a wedding to date! Michael made my wedding amazing, and I would highly recommend him to any bride!

We used AllStar Entertainment for our DJ and up lighting and they were amazing to deal with! Our DJ Brian McCarthy was fantastic. We told him exactly what we wanted and what we didn't, and he followed it to a tee! He started the night on a high note and kept it going all night. He had the dance floor packed from start to finish. So many of our guest commented on how great Brian was and how they have never seen a dance floor so crowded at a wedding before. From the up lighting to the music AllStar Entertainment made our wedding absolutely perfect. I'd give them higher than a 5 if it were allowed!!

We used AllStar and DJ Peter Healey for our wedding reception and we were very pleased. Peter Healey is an excellent DJ and we would highly recommend him. His professionalism and experience in the process was evident not just during the reception, but in the planning process prior to the big day as well. We didn't give him a laundry list of songs to play... we told him a lot about the guests and their likely preferences, a few of our preferences, and set a few rules (e.g. specific songs to not play) and that was it. Peter took care of the rest flawlessly and let us focus on and enjoy our big day without a worry. Although there are less expensive DJs, you take the risk that the experience they provide on your important day will not be as good as you hoped. Peter was absolutely top notch and well worth it for the experience provided on our big day.

We agree, DJ prices are all over the place, some are priced higher and some are priced lower than we are, but one fact is clear: "a cheap DJ is never exceptional and an exceptional DJ is never cheap". The success or failure of any wedding is in the hands of the DJ you hire.

Michael of AllStar Entertainment and Uplighting was simply brilliant as our wedding DJ! He was very supportive of our music choices and always had great ideas/suggestions when we were unsure what sort of music to use. He conducted the ceremony music perfectly, as well as the dinner/dancing music. He was so great at reading the crowd and keeping the dance floor full! He also had a great rapport with the venue staff, which helped everything run even more smoothly. There were no problems at all with the music he played (skipping, audio hits, etc), all of it was professional quality. He even was able to find music that we wanted that was not mainstream. Michael was always quick to return my calls and emails, and we knew that we never had to worry about anything with him and his company. Michael is incredibly professional in both his appearance and demeanor; I could not imagine anyone else doing as great of a job as he did. So many of our guests commented on how fantastic our DJ was, and how they loved all the music – from the start of the ceremony to the last dance, the music was perfect. It is definitely worth it to go with a good, reputable DJ, and without hesitation, I would recommend AllStar to anyone and everyone! Michael, thank you for making our wedding everything we wanted it to be! – Jim and Margot, 4.30.2011

We hired AllStar Entertainment for my daughter’s wedding on April 17, 2011 for both DJ services as well as lighting. I can't say enough about the expertise and professionalism of Michael Edwards. The ceremony music was beautiful. During the reception, he truly made the party. We received so many positive comments both during the reception and days after the wedding about our DJ (Michael Edwards). The dance floor was full all night and no one left early; a true sign of a great reception. The lighting under the tables was beautiful. He did so many little extras that were so entertaining; he is certainly a Master of Ceremonies and I would recommend him to everyone planning any type of event!

He did a fantastic job at pleasing everyone's music tastes, even my dad who is a rhythm and blues kind of guy. Also loved the surprises for my husband and I with the games and the props. It was nice to not know every single detail. We would highly recommend all star entertainment to anyone looking for affordable/quality entertainment! Thanks again michael!

Mike Edwards from Allstar Entertainment definitely made our daughter's wedding a wonderful and memorable time! He worked with my daughter on her song selections and gave helpful suggestions. What she loved the most was the time he took to "mix" the song for their first dance. He did a combination of English and Portugese and it came out beautiful. He knew how to keep everyone on the dance floor and we had a great time with the props! Thanks Mike!

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

I loved your idea about incorporating maracas along with popular Portuguese music and dances that were specially requested for the groom's side. This non-cheesy, pre-planned use of props not only added energy but also helped to unite and welcome both cultures onto the dance floor together as one family. It was great to see the dance floor packed right until the very end at a daytime wedding!

We were married on February 5, 2011 and hired Michael Edwards as our DJ for our wedding. Not only was Michael professional, he has a great sense of humor. He was very easy to work with. When our night came, I knew right off the bat we made the right decision for a DJ. There are a lot of DJ's out there and I have to say that Michael was the best DJ I have ever heard. I have been to a lot of weddings where there is an empty dance floor....I can't remember ever seeing the dance floor empty at our wedding. The energy in the room was outstanding....everyone had SUCH a great time and continually commented on how great the DJ was. He made it so fun....and he made the night one that everyone will remember for a long time. I would HIGHLY recommend DJ Michael Edwards for your wedding!!!

I had this image of what I wanted the lighting to look like at our wedding and they created something even better. We got married at The Lenox Hotel and I wanted the lighting to be classy and elegant and we got just that. The lighting was romantic during our ceremony, elegant during dinner and then then really fun during the dancing for the rest of the night. I recommend AllStar Lighting without any reservations. They are excellent at what they do.

AllStar Entertainment was the best DJ service in town hands down! Planning a Boston wedding from Nashville had some difficulties, but Josh Wiseman and the team at AllStar helped make the big night perfect!

Josh is such a talented DJ. He had everyone up and dancing, and played all the music that everyone wanted to listen to. He was charismatic, fun, and a joy to have at our wedding. The whole night went without a hitch because Josh kept everything moving. If you are looking for a top notch DJ, use AllStar Entertainment, and ask for Josh!! You will not be disappointed.

I used DJ Josh Wiseman for my New Year's Eve wedding and I was so pleased. He is very detail oriented, reviews everything with you to make sure he has it write and what a good time this kid is! He dresses great - very professional attitude and appearence. He's got a great personality and knows when the whole vocal DJ thing is needed and when it isn't. If you have a crowd that doesn't need to be coaxed onto the dancefloor, then he'll just lay low and play some great music, but if your guests need some encouragement, he has some funny, creative ways of making it happen, without them even knowing it. Josh is very attentive and has an awesome array of music. Couples need not worry when in his care. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Danny gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for on our wedding day. An AWESOME time for us and our guests!! As soon as dinner was done (this was the timing we requested) BAM, he got everyone up and going and it did-not-stop the entire night. Not one person left on the early shuttle back to the hotel. Danny spoke with us throughout the planning process right up until the week of the make sure he knew exactly what we were looking for and what our expectations were. Something I loved was his attention to detail. Quick example- he made sure he was saying all the names correctly before intros- how many times have you heard the names destroyed? He was always completely aware of what was going on/ when and where the important folks were at all times. When Danny says he is all about making your day perfect and special, he means it. As a surprise to my now husband and I, Danny set up an awesome lighting effect for our last dance. It gave the illusion of little stars all over the places so we were "dancing under the stars"- made awesome pictures! The variety in music was perfect and he did a great job managing our "must, do not and try" to play lists. He did a great job MCing the event, keeping the night on time, moving and FUN! I think it's also important to mention when reviewing a DJ that Danny is NOT cheesy. This was my biggest fear when selecting a DJ and now I know 100% we made the right decision. :) I called Danny in a panic a week before our wedding when we heard one of our closest relatives couldn't attend. We had originally skipped getting a videographer because of budget but now needed one! Danny had a videographer calling me within hours. I worked with Danny as an out of state bride (no easy task.) He got back to me almost immediately with any questions I had, was flexible with setting up calls and always made time in his schedule to meet with us when we were in the area. He is just absolutely awesome in every way. Danny is professional, cares about you, your day, he is extremely experienced not only in DJing but in the sound industry, his goal is to get EVERYONE moving at your wedding and I mean everyone... and he succeeds. Our wedding sounded great, looked great and felt great and Danny was a HUGE part of that. We would absolutely recommend him and AllStar to anyone knowing full well they can work with whatever your needs are.

5 stars does not even come close as to how great our DJ Mike Edwards was. I had sent out a mass email to DJ's requesting our date, and Mike was the ONLY one who called me and setup a meeting. Within 20 minutes of our initial meeting, my husband and I knew we HAD to have Mike. We really enjoyed talking with him, and he got to know us as a couple. We hired him on the spot, and it was the easiest decision of the entire process. I must have emailed Mike a hundred times, and he always responded quickly and with the answer I was looking for. During our final meeting before the wedding, he gave us awesome ideas that ended up being some of the highlights of the entire night. What made Mike special from the get-go was that you knew he really cared about our day and wanted to make it memorable for everyone there. During the entire night, everyone I talked to told me what a great DJ we had and that he made the entire party a hit - people still ask me where I found Mike to this day! Mike is absolutely fantastic and a great guy, both at his job and is just a great guy. My husband and I love him and can't thank him enough for making our day so wonderful! :)

AllStar Entertainment is the only call you need to make for DJ services for your wedding. Owner Michael Edwards DJ'd a friend's wedding 2 years ago and was fantastic so we wanted him for ours. Unfortunately, he was booked so he referred us to Brian McCarthy, one of his most seasoned DJ's. All I can say is.. Wow!!! Everyone from the wedding is still talking about Brian! He kept the energy high and the floor packed all night! A true entertainer! Just the right mix of elegance when appropriate & insanity to get the crowd going! He was worth every penny & then some!!

Everyone was dancing from the very beginning and kept dancing until the very last song, the music was fantastic! We had such a great time and so did everyone else. We had SO MANY compliments on our DJ. He kept it super fun, a great mix of music for young and old guests (we had quite the range at our wedding). Even the games were great!

It was a no brainer that All Star would be our first and only choice. Michael is an amazing DJ and businessman. He answered all my questions and was always quick to respond. He was a joy to have at my wedding and has such a great personality. I got so many compliments on how awesome the music was, how great the games were orchestrated, and just how much super fun everyone had. Michael threw confetti into the crowd at one point which produced some of the most amazing pictures of the night. Thank you Michael for a wonderful day, for your professionalism, and I can't wait to attend another function with you.

We used DJ James DiNanno for our wedding and he was fantastic! It was one big party from beginning to end and James did a great job getting everyone excited and up on the dance floor. His music selection was excellent and he knew exactly what to do and say to get people pumped up and ready to party. We didn’t have a wedding coordinator at our reception so having James there to help with the timing of the announcements, dances, cake cutting, etc… was very important to us, and he was right on top of that all night.

So many of our guests raved about how good the DJ was and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

We also used the Up-lighting and it created a great atmosphere in the hall and was well worth it.

The DJ is huge part of the wedding and DJ James was worth every penny!

Michael Edwards was the DJ for our September 18th wedding. We had heard how great he was from my husband's mom (she saw him DJ a wedding a year ago), but neither one of us were expecting the kind of reception that Michael orchestrated for us. After we met with him for the first time I knew he would work to make our wedding special. From the introduction of the bridal party all the way to the last dance and everything in between we had the best night of our lives! It was everything that a wedding should be for a bride and groom. He kept the dance floor packed for the entire night and was really able to read our crowd. I highly recommend Michael Edwards to anyone looking for a DJ for an upcoming event!

One word - OUTSTANDING!
Michael Edwards & AllStar Entertainment was the best vendor we booked for our September 5th 2010 wedding.
We met Michael in 2009 and immediately felt that he had a vested interest in supplying our 'type' of music for our wedding. He was attentive, had great ideas, and made such an impression. He was already drawing up a playlist from our conversation and we hadn't even booked with him!
The one other DJ we met with did not 'wow' us at all. It was a second job to him, it seemed like he just showed up and hit play of the same list he did for every wedding!
After that meeting we knew that Michael was the best choice to DJ our wedding.
My family LOVES to dance and he just did an amazing job with music that I don't think that the dance floor was empty all night.
We also hired the company to handle our uplighting and it really was worth the extra money, especially in the pictures - definitely adds to the atmosphere.
Thank you Michael! You were awesome!!

DJ: Greg Ryan

My wedding was the 20th wedding that I've attended. Since I come from a large family, a lot of my guests (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) have also attended as many weddings, if not more, and many of them have told me that my DJ, Greg Ryan (Gervais) was the absolute BEST they have ever come across.

When my husband and I met with Greg before the wedding, we asked that he play down some wedding customs (games, centerpiece prizes, line dances, etc.). I'm sure no DJ wants to hear that because sometimes guests need a little encouragement to get up and dance, but Greg had everyone out of their seats and dancing, no problem. Our guests ranged in age from young to old, and Greg had everyone dancing from the beginning of the night through the end. He played music that everyone could appreciate and dance to, and he accommodated all of our guests' requests. Some were still dancing as the venue turned on the main lights!

Greg was very professional and he worked really well with the photographers and venue staff. The venue coordinator even mentioned that Greg was the best DJ he'd ever worked with. Lesser DJs can be very rigid and they care only about reading off the names, playing their music and getting out of there. But Greg was happy to be at our wedding, and it was obvious to me that he truly cared about showing us a wonderful time at our wedding reception. You can't put a price tag on that.

Even months after the wedding, so many of our guests are asking for Greg's contact information, and I'm happy to recommend him. Thanks so much, Greg, for a perfect wedding reception!

Can't comment on uplighting as we did not use that. We went with Allstar Entertainment for a DJ for our wedding. We were so lucky to wind up with Peter Healey. Peter was AMAZING. He met with us in advance of the event to make sure he understood us as a couple, our style, and what we were looking for in reception music. He was available via email, phonecall, or text, and continuously encouraged calling anytime of day or night about the wedding music. I was texting Pete songs up until hours before the wedding, and he still had them incorporated. As promised, he had the entire crowd dancing throughout dinner -- all generations on the dance floor at once. It was so perfect I cannot describe. Going into it I was most nervous about a DJ since it's the one thing you can't REALLY test in advance (you can try the food, taste the cake, preview photos, see flower samples), a DJ is a little bit of a wild card. I'm so glad we put our trust in Peter and AllStar Entertainment. They significantly more than exceeded our expectations in every single way. Best yet, their big competitor was charging 40% more, what a joke! More expensive does not always mean better. We thought the more expensive DJ would so much tackier. Turns out we were right.

We used Michael Edwards himself for the wedding (music only; no uplighting). He was a total professional from the first communication through the end of the wedding reception. He quickly sent an informational package to us, allowed us to pay by credit card, called us with updates, and met with us in person to discuss our ideas for the wedding day.

He encouraged us to trust in his expertise, and we were pleased with how well he gauged the crowd that evening. We had a very small list of requests and "do-not-plays". Otherwise, we didn't make many demands. Many of our guests commented on how great he was as a DJ.

During dinner, he kept the volume at a level where people could enjoy the music but still easily chat with friends. He made clear announcements when certain events were coming up, and he selected dance music appropriate for all age groups at the reception.

Michael had helpful suggestions to make the reception flow smoothly, but he wasn't pushy with his opinions. He listened to our input and tailored his program based on our discussions. Although his fees are higher than other DJs, we were very pleased with his services, and we would highly recommend him to others.

He came with strong recommendations so we had high expectations for him going into our wedding and he met and exceeded every one of them! From the very beginning, Mike sat down with us and really took the time to get to know us so he could get a feel for what our wedding day would be like. Leading up to the wedding Mike was more the helpful with any questions that we had or to offer advice to help make our day go smoothly. We discussed music that we would like to hear at our wedding but when it came time to make a list we were so comfortable with Mike we gave him complete control of reading the crowd and making appropriate Music choices. That he did! We had our guests up on the dance floor dancing all night. Some of our guests have actually told us that they never dance but they were surprised when they kept finding themselves up on the dance floor. We couldn’t be more grateful for Mike Edwards and Allstar Entertainment for giving us a perfect wedding day! I highly recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for the perfect DJ! We can’t wait to go to another wedding where we know Mike will be the DJ because then we know that we are in for a good time!

Everyone at our wedding loved the music. You can feel very confident with Michael/AllStarDJ. It is a relief to work with a professional that takes care of everything. My only advice to brides is to get on the dance floor as much as you can --- the night goes by fast!

Our experience with Michael Edwards and Allstar Entertainment was nothing short of fantastic! Michael was very helpful and flexible with us to try and create the perfect soundtrack for our wedding day!
We are very musically oriented people and had a rather extensive list of songs that we wanted to have played throughout our day; from pre-ceremony music, to cocktail hour, to reception, we had songs specifically designated for several musical cues for which Michael was 100% spot-on.
From the moment we sat down with Michael, we had a feeling that he not only understood but appreciated what we were trying to achieve with our musical selections. Beyond his friendly demeanor, he was extremely helpful with his suggestions for the areas where we needed a little help; again making us feel that he was on the same page as us and truly cared to help us achieve our goal of creating a day that was powerfully moving through the music that was played.
Throughout the day, I found myself again and again reflecting on how perfectly he interpreted what we had talked about and he literally just kept playing all of the right songs at all of the right moments! Our day FLOWED BEAUTIFULLY and all of our guests had a fantastic time (several of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to!)!

I checked off that Michael provided "Unique Services" for us, and that's because he did!! Michael confessed to us that in the years he's been working as a DJ, he had never met with a couple who had more musical requests than we did! I admit, we did put him to work for us, but really my husband and I couldn't have been happier with the hard work and special attention to detail that Michael put into creating the soundtrack for what was the most wonderful day of our life!

Peter Healey did an amazing job DJing our wedding in Gloucester. From the ceremony outside right through to the end, everything went smoothly and effortlessly. We wanted a laid-back wedding, and wanted to make sure everyone there had a good time, danced, and laughed, and that's exactly the kind of wedding it was. Peter is good at sitting down with a couple and really figuring out who they are, what their personalities are like, and what they dream their wedding to be. After our one meeting with him, we never worried about that end of it again, and were able to move on to other things.

I think what separates a good DJ from a great one is the ability to get a feel for the room and to know what to play, when to play it, when to take the mic and get the crowd going. Peter had our guests up and dancing the whole evening.

My brother is getting married in July 2013 and he and his bride are using Peter Healey as well. I'm looking forward to it. Peter is a true artist at his craft.

Peter Healey is every bride's dream DJ. A bride wants to have the night of her life and Peter delivers. I had a wedding coordinator at my site in Gloucester and she was wonderful but it was Peter that made certain that the evening ran seamlessly. He truly coordinated a masterpiece.
Peter is the type of DJ that understands the couple's tastes and interests and then throws the best party in that framework. He is not a cookie-cutter DJ, he will not try to be the center of attention but will allow the couple that spotlight. Pete is a people-person in the most genuine sense, he can understand a couple's wishes and then read the room during the event to know just what the group needs to get going or keep going.
Guests talked about our wedding for weeks and months afterwards that is was the best/most fun wedding that they had ever been to, that our personalities were able to shine through the entire evening. Peter Healey allowed that to happen. He is a true master and I highly recommend him to family, friends and strangers alike. You will not be disappointed!

Words cannot explain how awesome, terrific, professional ,FUN amazing. I would be willing to talk to anyone who has any questions. Mike is worth every cent. He really make the wedding. Everyone was up dancing. He does amazing work. I don't want to give away any of the fun props or the "napkin questions" But FUN FUN FUN. I am really finding it hard to describe the FUN in words. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company to anyone. If you choose not to use him, You will be making a big mistake. He made the whole wedding so successful. If money is a problem in today's economy. Please don't skimp on the DJ (Mike).

Amazing wedding... (started at 3:30 pm and after 7.5 hours... they were still packed on the dance floor dancing under the rotating custom "Gobo" until 11:00 pm). I am thrilled with this wonderful review, but need to mention that props and high-energy interaction are only added at the request of the client, as others may prefer great dance music without any props or games, or a less expensive reception without extra hours, a custom "Gobo", or DJ sound systems in 3 locations, all of which made this wedding a unique blast!

DJ Mike Edwards was fabulous - fun, highly skilled, professional, and extremely friendly. My guests loved him! My brother told me he wishes Mike had been the DJ at his wedding. He played a great variety of music and people were on the dance floor throughout the entire reception - which is not at all typical for my family. He was also an indispensable resource in organizing the wedding party for our entrances to the reception, coordinating the cake-cutting and bouquet toss, facilitating the toasts, and a hundred other logistical things. I've been told over and over again how great Mike was and how fun he made the wedding. He was very classy and dignified and never came across as cheesy, which was very important to us. He listened carefully to all of our requests and preferences and stayed in touch with me throughout the reception to make sure everything was going as I had envisioned. There's no question that I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great event DJ. His prices are very reasonable for the terrific service he provides - worth every penny!

Josh Wiseman lived up to and exceeded every expectation for our wedding, which was in early June 2010. He was very available, and both Josh and Michael Edwards were easy to work with and attentive to our needs. My wife loved working with him! He met us at our reception venue, explored many options with us, and had lots of great ideas for the reception. Our guests had a total blast the whole night, and almost all of them stayed right to the end! He had everyone on their feet and many of our guests after told us that it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time. Josh has a real talent for judging the crowd and making it entertaining for everyone, while adding touches of class and fun. He definitely has a lot of experience and is great at what he does. Bottom line: very satisfied!

Our function hall took 3.5 hours to get through dinner, which would have been a nightmare if Michael Edwards hadn't had so many fun games and ways of breaking up the night. Even with dancing starting at 9:30 at night he had most of the room on the dance floor, everyone raving about how fun it was and how good the dj was; but most shocking was that my husband's 90 yr old grandfather and great aunts and uncles stayed until the end (11:30p), as well as all my younger family and friends. To be able to keep so many generations entertained at once is the kind of talent that makes Michael Edwards worth every penny!

The reason we hired Michael was because I remembered him from my friend's wedding back in 1997--he was "that good" so I KNEW we had to have him for our wedding if I could find him. Thankfully that '97 bride remembered. We had one consultation with Michael last summer and knew he was "the one" for us! We left that meeting learning so much more about our big day than we could have imagined.

The wedding ceremony was outside, and Michael provided the music. It was beautiful. He worked with the event coordinator, Reverend and photographer to make sure everything was in order and that everyone was in sync. The ceremony was perfect.

On to the fun!! I don't remember a wedding where the guests were 100% engaged and getting into party mode one song in--we are so proud to say that from the start, ours was a wedding not only we were loving but it was very apparent our family and friends felt the same way. The music was phenomenal, Michael had the crowd engaged immediately and the dance floor was PACKED from start to finish. At one point (trying to savor the moment of such a fast paced amazing day) I looked around the dance floor and could not see anyone at their seats -- they were ALL on the dance floor (even the people you usually see looking at their watches!!)

Michael was the ultimate professional while keeping the spirit of the day one of love, happiness and fun. We've heard from so many guests (both during the reception and after) that ours was the best wedding they'd ever been to, and Michael Edwards had a very pivotal role in making our wedding day nothing short of perfect. THANK YOU MICHAEL!

My husband and I got married May 22 2010 and had Michael Edwards as our DJ from ALLSTAR Entertainment. We also had ceremony music provided by all star musicians (the flute and guitar duo) We could not be happier with the services provided. The ceremony/cocktail musicians were professional, polite, and very talented. Michael Edwards was an outstanding DJ. He knew how to get everyone on the dance floor and played a key role in making our reception FUN! Many of our guests commented on how amazing he was. We let him make almost all the decisions from the music during the night, to games/etc. He has an uncanny ability to read the crowd and know what they want. I would HIGHLY recommend him anyone planning a wedding/any event!

He was responsive and kept the crowd going the whole night. He was right on cue with everything even when my husbands friends sprung a last minute song they had written for us. I would say ask for James when you go and don't look any further. This is the place to go. Very organized, mature and easy to work with which is what you want on your wedding day. We would love to do it again it was that much fun...) They really worked with us and we got exactly what we wanted. If you have any questions, ask them to call me and I will be happy to talk to you.

During the planning of our wedding, Peter was very responsive and accomodating, even when I decided the day before to change many of my song selections. Many members of our bridal party had names with difficult pronounciations and Peter nailed every single name during our introductions! Our dance floor was packed the entire night. Many of our guests commented that they had never been to a wedding with so many people on the dance floor. Peter was very enthusiatic and full of energy and I would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking for a dj!

My husband and I searched high and low to search for the right DJ for our wedding. We were so relieved when we called Michael Edwards from AllStar Entertainment. After the first phone call I knew he was the DJ for us. The energy that surrounds him is incredible, and he is extremely professional. I was impressed with how available he was to meet with us and go over every event detail. He made many suggestions and made the planning so easy. He really listened to us and what we wanted, while throwing in suggestions from past events to make the night run even more smoothly. He even accommodated my cousin playing background music during the cocktail hour.
The energy in the reception room on our wedding night was incredible, and just when we thought it couldn’t get any better he ramped up the pace and gave us a “finale” that we will NEVER forget. He got everybody out of their chairs dancing with my husband and I. And at the end of the night, he made it easy for us to say our good-byes to all of our guests in an organized timely fashion. I am not a dancer (I think this was the first time I have danced since my high school prom) and believe me when I say I DID NOT leave the dance floor all night! (And I have a video to prove it!!) Michael Edwards definitely surpassed our highest expectations. My husband and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone. Michael Edwards, Thank You for such a professional, experienced, and high energized DJ service for the most important night of our lives!

The whole experience working with AllStar was incredible from the beginning. Michael Edwards is easy to contact and work with. He is also very good at communicating information. Brian McCarthy was our DJ for the event. He was FABULOUS!!! He worked from the minute the reception started and did not let up until the night was over. He was very in tune with the crowd at our wedding and kept the night moving along. The dance floor was packed from the beginning to the end of the night. It was all because of Brian's expertise. I would HIGHLY recommend AllStar in the future.

Michael Edwards was absolutely fantastic! He was professional and ensured that the night kept moving along at a perfect pace.

From our initial meeting he put me at ease and I felt that short of 3 or 4 songs I had chosen for formal dances he had free reign. I trusted his judgment and years of experience to come forth to make our wedding a wonderful celebration. Prior to the wedding he took the time to walk me through the entire program of what would occur during the reception. This allowed me to prepare my fiance and my bridal party of the events of the evening so that they were in the loop as well and did not feel lost. He was meticulous in his planning and it showed as the evening went off without a hitch.

He also incorporated a few Portuguese songs for my family which was very special to ensure that everyone felt important. Our guests varied in age widely and he played perfectly to the diverse crowd. He has the perfect balance of setting the mood with music during the dinner of which people could choose whether or not they want to dance (at my wedding many people took the opportunity to dance) and then he had everyone on the dance floor after dinner which was wonderful. It was a great party and he made the night memorable for my guests who thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

I highly recommend Michael Edwards to any bride who wants a fantastic wedding celebration!

Thank you!

We booked Michael about a year in advance and from the moment we met with him we knew he would be perfect. He always responded with whatever questions we had and took the time to get to know us, which we really appreciated.

During the ceremony he played the music at an appropriate volume and provided a microphone during the ceremony so everyone could hear our vows.

The reception was amazing. We had people dancing through dinner until the very end of the night. Our guests ranged from ages 2 to 96 and EVERYONE was on that dance floor dancing the night away.

We are so grateful that we had Michael Edwards as our DJ! We STRONGLY recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DJ!

The first time I met him for our consultation two weeks or so before the wedding I came away confident he would do a good job. He did not disappoint at the receptions. He truly did a fantastic job at keeping the event interesting and lively. He adjusted the music to fit our crowd beautifully. As confident as I was following the initial meeting, he blew me away by making our reception more fun than I imagined it could be. We have been hearing how great the reception was from everyone since. Go get Michael for your wedding and I have no doubt you will have a fun filled night to remember!!!

DJ Danny Kaye made our day very special. He went above and beyond what you expect a DJ to do, and made the planning process easy. On the day of the wedding we had no worries as we knew we were in good hands with Danny running the event. He had everyone with ages 10 to 80 on the dance floor, as he left the guests wanting more at the end of the night. One month later we are still hearing how our wedding was the best wedding they have been to and many thanks to Danny for making this possible. We would recommend him for wedding or special event.

Hello:

Wanted to let all future brides/customers of AllStar Entertainment know that because of Todd Dellaporta, the music provided for our daughters wedding celebration was truly amazing. Before the wedding, our daughter Meghan said that she felt like music was one of the most important components of a successful wedding celebration. After Todd Dellaporta did the music for the wedding, my husband and I totally agreed with her..The guests were reluctant to leave the dance floor even while the meal was being served. Todd's professionalism was truly a special treat for this wonderful occassion. We highly recommend AllStar Entertainment for any future venues. Do not let the price sway you into finding a cheaper option. The service was worth every penny. Diane Cody

Michael Edwards did a fantastic job at our wedding. Michael was is constant contact with us throughout the whole wedding process. The week before our wedding, when he knew I was stressed out, he explained how the whole evening would go. Michael is a true professional with a great personality!!!
While the wedding party took pictures he came in and introduced himself and made sure everyone was comfortable with how they were walking in. He didn't have to do this. He's funny and you can tell he really enjoys what he does.
The most important thing is Michael genuinely cares about his customers. He made sure everything was going to go exactly the way we wanted it. I couldn't of asked for a better DJ. Thank you very much Michael. You did a wonderful job. I'll recommend you to family and friends. I'm so happy that we chose Michael. His motto is correct "A DJ can Make or Break a Wedding!!"

All Star Entertainment gets 5 stars across the board!! Michael Edwards was our DJ for our wedding and he was fabulous! Very professional and really got all of our guests involved and most of all kept them all on the dance floor dancing the entire night. He was attentive as well to our suggested playlist we provided. He was also very creative in giving away the centerpieces and doing fun little games that kept everyone entertained. Everyone commented on how great he was! I would highly recommend All Star Entertainment especially Michael Edwards for your next wedding/party/event!

i must say, after my cousins wedding michael dj'd, my wife and i knew that he would be perfect for our special day....and he was.
From our first meeting with michael, til the wedding day, he made us feeling comfortable and assured us that we were in good hands.
After the wedding michael was as much the talk of the wedding as the bride and groom. He made it a great night and we would recommend him to anyone who wants "everyone" to have a good time on their day!

After 25 years of videotaping weddings, I've worked with some of the best entertainment in the area. On Sept 5, 2009, I moved to the other side of the camera as the father of the bride. Without hesitation, my first choice for music was All Star Entertainment and in paticular, Brian McCarthy. I've seen him in action many times and never been disappointed. As a videographer, there is immediate excitment of knowing I'm going to make a great video. As a father, I wanted to insure my daughter had her perfect wedding. Well, Brian made me a hero. The reception was awsome. The energy Brian exibited was phenominal. He read the crowd perfectly and kept everyone dancing all night. His use of props was entertaining but not over bearing. I have recommended All Star Entertainment to my own video clients in the past and now as a customer will continue my recommendations. From the moment my daughter first met Brian to discuss her wedding, to the final dance at her reception, Brian did everything asked of him and more. Thank you Brian for a wonderful job!

Brian McCarthy was the DJ for my wedding on Sept 5th and I must say he surpassed ALL of my expectations. He was MC, Host, DJ, Entertainer, and all around star of the show. AllStar's slogan "The Music Makes or Breaks the Wedding" is 100% true and Brian MADE OUR WEDDING. Without revealing too many of his trade secrets, all I can say is he truly entertained everyone in attendance, got everybody involved, and kept the dancefloor packed the entire night. His ability to read a crowd, and control the evening without making it seem like he was in control amazes me still as I remember back on the countless unforgetable moments. Brian was recommended to us by my my new father-in-law who has video'd many of the weddings Brian has DJ'd as "the only DJ you want to have do your wedding"...and I pass that recommendation along to anyone looking for a DJ in this area. Thank you Brian!

We knew when we chose Peter Healey from AllStar Entertainment that he would be the perfect DJ for our wedding... And he managed to exceed our expectations!
Our guests were out on the dance floor right from the beginning of the reception! Everyone (young and old!) was dancing all night long! Peter did a wonderful job reading the crowd and knowing when to play the right song at the right time. There was never a point during the whole night where the dance floor was empty- we were blown away! Peter- you are the man!

My wife and I were married last summer and everyone is still talking about the wedding and the dj. Michael from AllStar Entertainment did an amazing job! From the very start he met with us early to ensure the names were correct and everything ran smoothly. At the reception, he had everyone up and involved almost instantly and it continued all evening. Everyone from younger teenage cousins to grandparents enjoyed the range of music and the seamless transitions in mood. We really thought about having an iPod wedding or saving a couple bucks here or there; Not only were the prices very fair in comparison but having a true master of ceremonies is priceless when everything just has to be perfect and you want the day to run smoothly. I would encourage anyone who really wants their day to be just right to hire Michael and AllStar Entertainment; you will not regret it and you will never forget it.

Abby and I would like to thank you for an amazing evening. You absolutely rocked our wedding! I don't think I have ever been to a wedding where everyone was on the dance floor from start to finish. You knew exactly how to capture the group and kept them going. It was rather amusing because every time Abby and I tried to go to the tables and thank our guests, they were on the dance floor. I remember sitting back in the corner at one point and taking in the evening. There were probably 10 people sitting down and everyone was on the dance floor. This made a wonderful evening for us and we can't thank you enough!

Our ceremony music by harpist Michelle Pinet was absolutely beautiful and timed perfectly. Peter Healy, DJ, what more can I say.....he rocked the house and had everyone dancing from start to finish! His charismatic personality and choice of music truly make him stand out as a professional and he delivers a great event. he did not miss a beat, name or detail.

He got our guests completely involved with every aspect of our reception. The music was great, with none of that typical wedding music (ie. the chicken dance and electic slide). The games he played were fun, entertaining, and interactive for everyone. We would HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone who is looking for an amazing DJ.

Michael Edwards of All Star Entertainment was incredible! All Star truely stood by their moto "music makes or breaks the party!" Michael made it happen! Michael sat down with us more than once and made sure we got the best wedding ever. He got to know my wife and I on a personel level, making us feel comfortable and confident that his service would fully provide the highest quality. He NEVER let us down!

Being a musician, I was very picky in making my choice for a DJ. Luckily...Michael Edwards is a musician! This might not make sense to those of you who are not, but TRUST ME...it makes a huge difference!!!! Musicians just know how to make a playlist flow and keep the crowed entertained. Edwards nailed it! I was floored at his professionalism and improvisational skills, which kept our guests dancing all night long. It was amazing how well tuned in he was with the guests mood, taste and style. I could not have been happier with the service that All Star Entertainment provided us! Thank you Michael and we will recommend you every time!

P.S. Thanks for listening to my bands CD. I appreciate you taking the time to listen and give feedback.

Sincerely,

Michael Edwards of AllStar Entertainment was key in making the wedding reception such a success. I had been to a wedding years ago where he was the DJ - and I knew I had to have him for my daughter's wedding someday. Well, when the planning for the day arrived, he was one of my first contacts. I can't recommend Michael enough!!! He was responsive to our every need and certainly knows how to entertain. Once people got up to dance, no one left the dance floor. No hokey dances, no stupid tricks, just great music from a man who knows how to read the crowd. Thank you, thank you, thank you Michael. You are the best!

Michael Edwards is a highly professional DJ and was a great pleasure to work with. He was very attentive and curious in listening to our music needs and wedding style. The forms he uses make it very easy to convey all the necessary information and to think ahead of time about the wedding time-line and organization. He made sure to check in with the venue and to test all settings and equipment ahead of time and brought all the equipment for our slide show. He was also very diligent in finding every song we requested, even during the night of the wedding. Most important, he had everyone dancing and having fun all night without having to pressure anyone. I highly recommend Michael Edwards.

We can't recommend Michael Edwards and AllStar Entertainment highly enough. Everything was perfect. He was organized and professoinal. He had all of the music that we asked for. Everything we had planned for the ceremony and reception unfolded exactly as we wanted it. He did a great job improvising when appropriate (playing New York, New York and suggesting a line dance as the women grabbed the dancing shoes that we provided). And most importantly, as promised, he kept the dance floor packed all night.

We were thrilled with his performance and very thankful to have chosen him to MC our special day.

The wedding party introductions were very well organized and it was the the best way to start our night, we had people dancing on the floor within 10 minutes of the reception. The dance floor was full the entire time and I for one did not leave the dance floor.

Our guests have commented on the variety and quality of the music and how friendly and professional Peter was. We could not have been more happy with Peter and AllStar Entertainment for our special day. Thank you Peter!

AllStar Entertainment was the first company to return my call. I am very glad they were because I couldn't have imagined a better DJ. We used Michael Edwards himself for our wedding. He made everything easy and stress free. He played exactly the kind of music we wanted without us having to give him a playlist. We were open to props and fun and he definetely delivered. He used unique things that we had never seen before and all our guests loved it. We heard only good things from our guests that range in age from 18 - 80. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking. Using any other DJ would be a mistake.

I was recently a guest at my friend's wedding as well as her wedding planner. I worked a lot with Michael Edwards and Peter Healy prior to the event and always found them to be professional, responsive and geniunely interseted in my friend's needs.

The night of the event, Peter could not have been more involved and understanding. He came up to me several times during the night to make sure the bride was happy, he was consistent in his music choices (playing the variety the bride and groom had asked for), he was flexible when guests of the wedding asked for something different and he helped to keep the dance floor alive all night! And believe me, with this crowd, it was a challenge. He was personable, friendly and an absolute joy to work with from a professional level.

I would highly recommend All Star Entertainment and Peter Healy for any event. For their reasonable prices, they gave A+ service throughout the entire process.

Michael Edwards made our wedding so much fun! He has the ability to read off the crowd and select music accordingly. He truly is a professional. He helped us pick out songs to be introduced to and was very flexible about changing songs at the last minute (my Dad decided to change the song we were dancing to right before the dance happened!). He also had every song that people requested. The dance floor at our wedding was packed all night long which made for some really great pictures and memories. He also has a unique way to give away the centerpieces and allowed my husband and I to have some really sweet and funny moments in front of our guests. Our guests are still talking about how Michael Edwards and how much they enjoyed the music and dancing at our wedding. I hope to go another wedding and see him there!!

We used Michael Edwards the owner of All Star entertainment as our wedding reception DJ. We booked him for an additonal hour which is why the cost was 1850 versus his typical 1500 (or so). Aside from the fact that we found his prices very comparable... he was hands down the BEST DJ I have ever seen/ heard! I was a total perfectionist when it came to my wedding and Michael hit the nail on the head.. .not only did he have my entire 300 person reception up and dancing the ENTIRE night, I can't tell you how many people came to me after and said they NEVER dance or their dates NEVER dance and they couldn't believe howthe dj got them going. Michael really knows his crowds. He also got SEVERAL bookings from our wedding from friends planning their own weddings! He was dressed beautifully, had a wonderful classy persona and did a wonderful job balancing the "fun" stuff with the keeping the night beautiful and romantic! I would use him again in a heart beat and he was hands down my favorite vendor... in fact, my husband and I can't wait to attend weddings later this year that booked him!

I know I can be a bit partial (since it was my wedding day!) but I have never been to a wedding where EVERY one of the guests was up on the dance floor for the ENTIRE night dancing. The floor was shaking at times! People were going up to my parents at the end saying they couldn't believe the night was already over! The ceremony was beautiful and the sound/music was great. We had a few requests but really just let him take it from there. It may be a touch more expensive than the average DJ but you get what you pay for. Thats what they do and they are the BEST at their job. We've been to alot of weddings in the past few years and I don't think any of them have really come close - music/entertainment wise - to our wedding. I would recommend All Star Entertainment to anyone and if I ever need a DJ I wouldn't even consider calling anyone else. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!!

DJ Greg did a great job at our wedding this past June (2014). Planning with him was very easy. We emailed him specific songs we wanted for cake cutting, first dance, etc as well as a list of songs we liked and did not like so he could get an idea for what our music style was. We talked on the phone about a week before the big day and went over all of our recommendations and pronunciation of the bridal parties names for introduction, and other details. Everyone, from the bridal party to my aunts and uncles, had a great time and people were on the dance floor all night. He likes to take a picture with the bride and groom, which I think is fine, but asked at the very end of the night when both my husband and I were not looking our best (it was a typical June night and we were both a bit hot and sweaty, especially from dancing). I would have preferred if he asked at the beginning of the night when we both were looking our best, but thats just me. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend DJ Greg to other couples.

Our friends have used all star entertainment before and so we wanted to use them too for our DJ and uplighting. My fiancé and I Love all types of music and we wanted to make sure that everything was played! Josh sat down with us and went over how he worked and what he was thinking for us. He far surpassed our expectations. we said we wanted a party and Boy did we get one!! our guests were dancing before the salad came out! which for us was what we wanted!! all night he played great music and kept the dance floor full the whole time. He has a great personality and got everyone involved! We also had Casey from uplighting and the room looked so amazing! we've seen some pictures already and the colors in the background are so vibrant! it was a really nice touch and we are so happy we chose All star for our wedding!

Absolutely top notch. We had DJ James DiNanno and he worked closely with me on the music to get the kind of fun, inspired party my fiance and I really wanted. The music was one of the most important aspects of the day for me, and James made it seamless. He caught the vibe of my play list and added in songs that worked perfectly all night. He was true to my "do not play" list and made sure all of my guests had fun. The ceremony went perfectly thanks to his timed pieces and audio aids. There were a few special announcements and moments that James had to coordinate and he did it all so well. Great guy, great personality and a lot of fun. The lighting was also very important and our lighting person helped to create an atmosphere that gave the room more ambience and made people want to get up and dance. She also made sure our theme colors were utilized well. We had paid for a special lighted logo with our names in a heart that would be projected onto the wall, and that was the one and only disappointment because it was displayed on a pleated curtain, and so it looked wavy and hard to read. Straightening the curtain it was on would have made it legible and more effective. That's why I took off half a star in the quality of service category, but really a minor detail in an overall perfect experience! Highly recommended.

DJ Greg Ryan was very professional and provided our wedding with a fun, yet sophistocated atmosphere. He provided a great dance party from foxtrots to swing to 80s and pop. The "Sweet Caroline" dance/sing off was a hit! We would highly recommend him!

Good morning! I wanted to send this email out as soon as the wedding was over…… James Dinanno was FANTASTIC!!!! My daughter and now son in law booked James for their DJ on 6/14/2013. I have to tell you that the dance floor was never empty! He played songs that all of us enjoyed, a mix for the younger crowd and a mix for us older folks.  The only time there was a complaint was when the party was over and he had to stop. Great job, great guy, great music! Thank you for everything! The lighting was beautiful and the photo booth was a major hit!!!! Again thank you, James and your company will be highly recommended!

We used AllStar Entertainment for all of our music and lighting needs for our wedding. It all started with a trip to their offices to speak with one of their DJs, James, whom we spoke with for a bit about what kind of DJ we were looking for. Based upon our wants and needs, he recommended a few DJs from each "tier". We decided to go with DJ Greg Ryan. We also used AllStar to arrange to provide uplighting for our reception as well as a String trio for the ceremony music.
A few weeks before the date, we were contacted by each of the providers to work out any details. The manager of the string trio even asked us to provide the contact information for the officiant so they could work out exactly what the cues were for certain pieces. We must have been very easy to work with for the uplighting technician because we left it up to her to do what she thought best. And working out all the details with Greg was simple because of the forms that we filled out that had all the music, and he was able to also grab some instrumentals off of Youtube for the wedding party introductions.
In the end, everything was wonderful. A friend of ours who was getting married a month later remarked that he now wanted a string trio after hearing them play for the ceremony. The uplighting was fantastic and changed throughout the night. And DJ Greg Ryan was everything we had hoped and it was obvious he had the pulse of the guests and kept everyone dancing the entire night.
Everyone at AllStar was extremely prompt with emails and phone calls, and they were a pleasure to deal with from beginning to end.

My wife and I hired AllStar for DJ and Uplighting service at our wedding at the Boston Museum of Science. Our DJ (Greg Ryan) and Lighting Technician (Ashley) were both top notch, and we highly recommend them!!! Greg met with me a couple weeks prior to the wedding, when we walked through in detail our ceremony and reception, and went through what music we wanted played. I sent Greg a number of MP3s of unique music that we had picked out, and he was able to seamlessly integrate that into our wedding. The wedding went great... 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. highly recommend!!

Peter Healey was our DJ and we also hired an uplighting specialist for our October Wedding. My fiance and I had immediate faith in Peter that he was going to "rock the house" as he puts it, and he really did follow through!! Peter was professional, organized and let us know exactly what do to and when. He kept the party moving without being too loud or in your face in any way. My parents who were afraid the music was going to be too loud, or their friends would be dancing, were pleasantly surprised when they couldn't keep their friends or my father off the dance floor! EVERYONE was dancing and had a great time!

The lighting by Ashley McPherson was amazing. Everyone commented on how amazing the room looked, and lighting kept changing. Ashley was so professional and nice to work with! I even had an extensive phone interview with her several days before the wedding regarding my up lighting preferences. I would highly reccomend this company- DJ and up lighting to anyone!

James was our DJ. He responded to emails and phone calls very quickly. He knew at the wedding how to get people dancing and controlled the flow of the night. We did ask for a lot of must play songs, and we think he did his best to try to play most. Ashley was our lighting girl and did a wonderful job transitioning the lighting so the room didn't look the same all night.

My fiancé and I first met with Michael Edwards to obtain information on AllStar Entertainment and see if this was a good fit. Michael recommended DJ Josh Wiseman for us, and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. From our first meeting with Josh, we were comfortable that he knew the exact atmosphere we were going for. The music planning process was made easier by the planning forms AllStar provided. Additionally, Josh and I discussed each item on these forms to confirm we were in sync. On the wedding day, Josh was perfect. He appealed to both the older and younger crowds and knew when different genres were needed. People were literally on the dance floor all night, even during dinner! He kept the party going and I would recommend him to any friend!

I used AllStar Entertainment for my Sept 24, 2011 wedding and thought they were great. My DJ was Todd DellaPorta. I strongly recommend him. He is very professional and can really read the crowd. He had people dancing all night long. He even had people dancing before the meal!
The only caution I would throw out is that the DJ brought an assistant with him who he seemed to be training. He did the music during the dinner and part of the dancing. I didn't realize that the assistant was actually going to be DJing so it caught me offguard. He did a fine job but used the microphone more than I would have liked since I had let Todd know that I didn't want him to use the microphone if he didn't have to.
All in all, a great job and I would strongly recommend Todd to anyone. Just had to knock AllStar a little on the professionalism stars for not being clear about the additional DJ. If I had known he would be playing the music then I would have ensured he was at the meetings to know what I was looking for.

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

We're thrilled that the wedding was such a success and are quite proud of DJ Todd for making your wedding such a priority when he was actually quite ill with bacterial pneumonia that day. In fact, the following week he was hospitalized at Lahey Clinic for 3 days. Todd always uses a DJ partner, and usually mentions this with regard to planning vendor meals. His partner was not a trainee, but a pro DJ with 10 years of DJ experience who took over on the microphone when Todd's voice shut down. Even with a fever, Todd stood at his side guiding the music selections, based on his consultation notes and prior instructions... and everything went smoothly without ever worrying our lovely bride at all on her wedding day.

Michael DJ'd our reception and was excellent! We had so many compliments from our guests about Michael and how he kept everyone engaged in the entire reception. We also had one of Michael's staff DJ our ceremony, (using the music choices that we supplied) and the system he used sounded great - clear, with the perfect volume for the location. The only issue I had was the cost for the ceremony DJ service - we booked him from 4:45pm to 5:30pm (music only) @ a cost of $400.00. I understand that there's the set up & breakdown time to be considered, but even if you add on an hour for that, it works out to more than $200.00/hour.
Our cost for Michael to emcee the reception was seperate, but he was worth every penny :)

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

Ceremony fees, where a second DJ system is required at a completely different location, require booking the DJ for a full hour, which was $200 in this case. They arrive early and start the music about 1/2 an hour before the ceremony, as guests arrive. The cost to rent a professional DJ system and have it delivered and set-up would cost at least $200 from any rental service... who deliver it and then leave. We also plan out and obtain the music in advance, coordinate the cues with the officiant and bring "backup" equipment, just in case. Comparing the cost of other ceremony options (harpist, string trio etc... who do not bring a PA system or microphones for the vows or officiant) we truly believe this price is well matched to the services.

I had Tricia as my DJ for my wedding on 8/14/10. She did an amazing job MCing, singing during dinner, and kept the party hopping all night long! She did a great job, and I know that I'll always remember my wedding as a really fun and exciting event. We had to tear ourselves away from the dance floor to eat a few morsels of food and greet each table, but other than that we were dancing all night long.

There was a minor mishap with the music as it cut out for a few seconds during one song. It was swiftly put back on, not sure what happened there. Overall, the service and professionalism were outstanding. The mishap certainly didn't blemish the fun we had that night with our friends and family!

I've been searching for months for a good DJ and finally stumbled upon AllStar Entertainment agency. I read almost every single review on this site and decided to give them a call. And I'm so glad I did. I recall my first phone conversation with agency's owner, Michael Edwards, he sounded very courteous and professional. I told him that our wedding will be a bit different in respect that we will have guests and family members visiting from different countries, but primarily from Russia. He reassured me that they'd be able to play any kind of music and entertain the crowd to our liking. And hence we decided to go with them. Brian McCarthy was our DJ for both reception and outside ceremony. We personally met with Brian twice to go over all the nuances of the wedding program. We learned that Brian is a full time DJ and also a musician. He has a great sense of humor and we knew that everything would be just perfect and taken care of on July 17th. And indeed, Brian did a wonderful job! He arrived and setup on time. For outside ceremony he played pretty much everything what we agreed upon. Our reception turned out to be phenomenal! He surpassed our expectations in terms of guest entertainment and his own dancing ability. Brian is a true crowd pleaser. He knows how to get the crowd up on their feet and make them dance all night long. I attended a lot of weddings as a photographer and thought that our DJ truly rocked the floor (maybe just a tiny bit overdone at times, but everyone loved it)!! We also had groomsmen in our bridal party who rarely danced during their own wedding, and yet they were up and dancing, having a great time. We truly would like to recommend Brian McCarthy to anyone who is looking for a wonderful and unforgettable reception experience. The only reason why I'm not giving 5.0 for quality of service is because I truly believe that a DJ should not always be a center of attention and listen more carefully to his client’s wishes. I specifically asked Brian to play a few of our favorite Russian/Ukrainian dance songs which I particularly selected and provided a CD prior to our wedding. I thought this kind of music would have been a nice touch for our relatives who traveled so far to attend our wedding. Unfortunately, none of the selected dance songs I gave from the CD were played, and I know Brian realized that himself at the end of the night. Otherwise, both my husband and I were very pleased how our wedding night turned out. Brian did an outstanding job, and it was so close to above and beyond. Brian, thank you so much for everything and for the nice confetti touch during our last dance. Oh, and the masks together with your signature Six Flags character imitation was amazingly well received. All our guests and relatives are still talking about our wonderful wedding and how much fun they had! Thank you so much, Brian!

We knew that he would make our wedding reception amazing! He helped us pick out all the reception music, and to this day (almost 2 years later) we are STILL receiving complements about the music. In fact, one of my bridesmaids loved him so much she went right out and booked him for her wedding this summer!

Michael kept the dance floor packed all night and played a great balance of old and new songs so that everyone could get up and dance. Aside from getting married, Michael Edwards was the best part of my wedding day!!!!

Our DJ, Josh Wiseman, was amazing, highly recommended. All Star is a great company, they sat down with us, twice, for over an hour to tell us all about their services, recommendations, and fun ideas. Josh checked in with me whenever I had a question, and was so accommodating for last minute changes. He made sure the flow of the evening went great, always informing us (and our photographers) of what was coming. He was able to get all of our guests out on the dance floor, from my great aunt and uncle who won his dance competition to our little cousins. He was able to find the exact ceremony music I had asked for, played nice dinner music (not too loud!), and gave us plenty of time to dance the nice away. Thanks again to All Star and Josh for making our wedding so perfect!

Todd DellaPorta (DJ) from AllStar Entertainment was fantastic. He was extremely pleasant to deal with prior to the wedding--easy to reach via email or phone, flexible for meeting times and locations, always professional, had a lot of ideas but was also open to suggestions. He listened to me and what I envisioned for my wedding and helped me to make it happen. Even when I suggested a few things which he thought might not work, he worked with me and made it happen...and it worked! He had everyone up on the dance floor all night, and all of my guests have continued to comment on how much fun they had and how great the music selection was. He stayed away from all of the cheese that I didn't want and he remained completely professional the entire night. I would absolutely hire Todd again, and I would recommend him to any bride who is looking for a great time at her reception.

I also used All Star Entertainment & Uplighting to provide the uplighting at my wedding. It was a bit of a last minute decision for me because I wasn't sure if my budget could handle it, but I so glad that I did it! It ended up being one of my favorite things about the reception. The uplights made such a difference in setting the mood for the night. The reception hall that we chose was quite formal, and I was afraid that the guests might not be able to relax and let loose. The uplights made the room feel more like a lounge or a club (but in a classy way!) and it really made it feel more like a party. And they also allowed my centerpieces, which included votives and floating candles, to really shine and be the focus of the room. Andrea, the technician who set up and operated the lights all night, was professional and pleasant to work with. I would absolutely recommend uplights to all brides and I would absolutely hire AllStar Entertainment & Uplighting again.

We contacted AllStar Entertainment because of the excellent reviews and they did not disappoint. Nick was our DJ for our reception and he did a wonderful job. He was very professional, flexible and responsive. When we were still deciding on a musician for our ceremony, he offered to show up early if we needed his services or the use of his equipment. He showed up early as promised (although we ended up not needing him)...our ceremony began at 5:30 and he wasn't scheduled to start until the reception at 7:00. On top of that, he did exactly what we asked...he kept all our guests on the dance floor. Thanks, Nick and AllStar Entertainment!

Peter was fantastic, my wedding guests are still raving about how much fun they had. I let Peter play to the crowd, it wasn't exactly my type of music but he played every song that I requested. The genre of most of the guests were over 40 so he played more older than newer songs but he really got everyone moving. The one thing that everyone was in to (to my surprise) was the glow necklaces and limbo line that he started-my guests completely ate it up. He was incredible, he did such a great job I highly recommend him. He was always accessible by phone and to meet which speaks volumes for his work ethic. AllStar was a little higher priced than other DJs I met with but for such an important day you want the best and the best is what they give. Peter killed it, no doubt.

We had DJ Peter Healy for our reception. He was terrific. We had very specific requests for our entrance music, first dance, parent dances, cake cutting and last dance - but other than that, we put no restrictions on him. No "must play" or "do not play." He read the room fabulously and kept people really moving and loving the music. The music during the meal was appropriately not overpowering. Towards the latter part of the evening as some people were starting to tire, he revved everyone back up again and kept it lively, entertaining and fun. We were really delighted with him.

Really, my only complaint was that I wished we could have had more direct contact with him prior to the wedding. All Star kept all communications strictly between their office and us up until the Monday before the wedding. When we spoke to Peter that week, he had received some of the instructions we had relayed to All Star, but not everything and we basically had to start at the beginning and walk him through what we wanted, even though we'd already conveyed it to All Star. It all turned out fine, but it would have been less frustrating if we could have dealt with it earlier, actually communicated with the DJ himself and made sure he could and would do the specifics we cared about.

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

We ALWAYS pass along every email, phone message and letter we receive from every client right to their DJ as soon as it comes in... 100% of the time. All these updates were sent to the DJ... however, any time we get a large number of updates, additions and changes (including conflicting details at times) we've learned that calling to go over the contents of each update weeks in advance is less effective than doing it closer to the wedding date... especially when your DJ may be performing at 12 other weddings before your wedding. For efficiency, we purposely suggest that the final consultation to tie all the loose ends and updates together should be held on or around the Monday prior to the event... since your DJ can then devote his entire attention to your wedding alone... consolidating all of the amassed details we've forwarded to him from you over the weeks or months they were received. That's exactly why the DJ gathered all the info and started from scratch... to make sure every detail was perfect... and make sure he had it all. I would not call that a lack of flexibility, but a better way to make sure we do everything exactly your way. It sounds like Peter nailed all the details completely and rocked the crowd as well. We appreciate the comments, as we are always looking for ways to improve our services.

Our dance floor was packed from the moment the music started till the very last song. Michael Edwards was amazing with the audience, he was really able to read them and pick which songs would keep everyone dancing! my only complaint would be that we used his outdoor ceremony set up and the Minister had a cordless mic attached to his shirt, the mic would go in and out so that the audience wouldnt be able to hear him mid sentence, and then it would come back on spontaneously. Other than that, Michael was the perfect entertainer for our wedding!

Well before the ceremony, we tested the wireless microphones and experienced some intermittent interference due to the location, for reasons similar to when a cell phone drops a call. There was at least a distance of 50 feet between the DJ set-up and the ceremony location, which added to the potential for wireless signal drop out. Realizing this, we offered the officiant a corded microphone on a stand, but he declined, saying that he preferred the clip-on mic instead... I regret accepting his decision. No ceremony will ever have a 'drop out' again, my entire ceremony system has been replaced with a Bose L-1 PA with special wired microphones that pick up both the officiant and the vows of the bride and groom flawlessly... every time.

Our DJ was great. He made me and my husband feel at ease during every phone call and meeting. We had complete trust in him. Everybody was dancing at our wedding, complimented our choice in DJ and had a great time!

Great wedding! I think the fact that we had to charge this bride and groom for 4 hours of travel time was reflected in the bride's rating of our value for cost, which spoiled an otherwise perfect rating. Still, it also demonstrates that there were no local DJ's in their area that could offer the same quality and level of DJ services as AllStar.

Anthony Arone was a fun and exciting DJ. He not only had a great music selection but he also got our guests up and dancing (which was very important for us considering different cultures and different age groups)!!! He was even able to assist with some Polish and Italian traditions. It was his first time doing this and he did a great job with assisting with us.

Many of our guests commented how much they enjoyed the music at our wedding, including pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Our guests ranged in age from 3 to 94 and TJ from AllStar played enough of a variety to please them all. Also, he was great accommodating the specific requests I gave him for the ceremony and reception. The only negative I heard was that "dance" music should have started a little sooner.

Some venues do not permit the DJ to start the faster dance music until after they have ended meal service. As wedding professionals, we always strive to work with the venue and all other vendors to make every event a smooth one. Wedding guests who are earer to dance and thus make comments like that are unaware of the rules dictated to a DJ by the venue management.

We had so many of our guests say they were impressed were our DJ. The dance floor was packed the whole night. Greg and Mike at Allstar responded to our questions quickly. Very happy with the service, we had a perfect night.

One mark of professionalism in any DJ or DJ company is "responding quickly" whenever a client makes contact. As dedicated pros, we pride ourselves on delivering exactly the type of services that DJ Greg provided. Reading the comments makes us politely wonder what we could have done differently to earn our typical 5-star rating? Still, we're delighted that DJ Greg packed the dance floor all night and provided "a perfect night"... which is what we always strive for. Best wishes.

I would've liked to have met in person more often and though they would have done it, it was clear that they didn't prefer to. Our DJ was very responsive to phone and email contact in the last week though and so I was comfortable with the level of communication. Our DJ was knowledgable and offered strong suggestions but was open to our comments and specific wants as well.

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

After the first 2 "in-person" meetings with the bride, the DJ suggested that both he and the busy couple would save time and mileage by finalizing the remaining details by phone and email, as often as necessary, since there is no particular advantage to several meetings in person once an initial rapport and comfort level has been established with the DJ. Also, the ceremony and reception were held at a venue that refers us on a regular basis (Barn at Gibbet Hill in Groton) where we have performed many times before and were thus already completely familiar with.

Overall, GREAT job because everyone had a wonderful time and this is the most important thing. My parents, husband and I would have been the only ones to notice that we never heard many of the songs on our "must-play" list. I was not thrilled that we had to provide our Disney CD and Mother-Son Dance song that we requested when both were readily available for online purchase. If we're spending $1500, a $30 (tax-deductible) investment is not a lot to ask. I would, however, still recommend to friends and family because everyone was on the dance floor all night and this was our goal. Thanks for a wonderful time!

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

In response, DJ Tommy explained that since the bride wanted the Disney music for the entire 1 hour cocktail reception, he wanted to be certain that the versions of the Disney songs he was playing were the same versions the bride wanted to hear. When the bride said she had the CD and offered it, the DJ accepted, even though he had many of the songs already, in a different version. As for the parent dance, he paid to download it, but after hearing it, called the bride because it was quite short and ended abruptly. They determined the download had an error and again, the bride offered to provide the song. Tommy assured us that all "must play" songs were played, (including "Mack the Knife" for Dad) but at this venue, the bride, family and guests have the option of being in 5 different rooms (main ballroom, bar area in foyer, rest rooms downstairs, outside for smokers and another room with the dessert buffet)... so it may still have been difficult to hear when each request was being played. We're delighted that everything else was "great", that you'd "still recommend" us and the dance floor was full all night. The venue manager says it was a great reception. We appreciate the feedback. We normally buy any songs we don't have that are requested, so we'll have them for future clients. From now on, whenever a client offers to provide such music, our policy will be to ask if it is any type of imposition or inconvenience before accepting the CD.

We had DJ Brian McCarthy for our August wedding. We had met with him on two occasions prior to the wedding and discussed our preferences. We had requested no props and no games and thought we had been very clear about it; however, he played games there were props and at one point he even showed up on the dance floor with a Michael Jackson mask on. We enjoyed his music selection and had a packed dance floor for most of the night but just wished he had listened when we had said he was there to provide the entertainment and not be the entertainment. One other thing my husband and I found very tacky was immediately after our first dance he came up to us and asked us for a check. He was aware my parents were paying as they gave him the deposit the first time we met and discussed they would be paying the balance at the reception. He was actually our only vendor we did not tip.

AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting responded with the following comments:

After getting 134 perfect 5-star reviews... any such review is taken very seriously here at AllStar. On the positive side...we're glad you were pleased with the music selection and thrilled that everybody danced all night. Let's discuss the negatives...

DJ Brian has checked his event notes and they indicate that he did our much-requested napkin game during a lull between courses. Most clients love this and even request it, but such an activity should not have been done if you specified no games. The DJ's impromptu Michael Jackson skit (after the meal), involved Brian briefly joining a packed dance floor dressed as MJ to elevate the energy level of the crowd and entice even more guests to join the fun. Brian, who is a great dancer known for his high energy performances, is guilty of being over-zealous here. This full-time DJ has been one of our most requested and popular DJs since 1990 and is normally very careful to adhere to the detailed instructions of his clients. This review resulted in a full DJ staff meeting at AllStar Entertainment. New rules will assure that the preference for "music only" from any future client will be carried out to the letter by all our DJs. Your reception should be exactly what you envision and not based on a well-meaning or enthusiastic DJ's instinct to take the energy level up a notch.

Regarding the payment... we agree, it's tacky when any vendor (DJ, caterer, photographer etc) must bring up an unpaid balance during someone's wedding day. The contract stated that the DJ balance was due "prior to the start of the engagement", to avoid the awkward subject of payment once the reception started. Since the bride had signed this contract, her parents may not have been aware of that requirement. Our DJs prefer not to bother the bride or groom during their day, but when nobody approaches us with the balance after more than an hour, at some point, any DJ must politely say, "there's still the matter of the final balance", which were Brian's exact words. We've had past events where the DJ politely waited until the end and was then told, "I wish you brought it up earlier, my Dad just left with your check still in his pocket."

AllStar DJs always strive for perfection in our services, and it's very rare that we get a bad review (especially for DJ Brian McCarthy, who did my own brother's wedding in 2009). However, a rare negative review helps us to improve our services and assures a revision of policy to prevent such issues from happening again. So, we thank you for helping to make us a better service.
Michael Edwards (owner).
