Murphy’s Law puts it so well – “what can go wrong will” - and that statement couldn’t be truer the day before our wedding. We originally hired a talented singer from our hometown in Chicago to fly out east to perform at our wedding on Cape Cod. As luck would have it due to various situations at the airports in Chicago he was unable to catch a flight which left us without a wedding singer/music/DJ… less than 24 hours before our wedding. Thankfully, to the credit of our wedding coordinator, she reached out to BE Weddings and after shuffling a few committments around, they were able to accommodate providing us a DJ even that last minute.

To say they were accommodating is simply an understatement. They were wonderful! They genuinely sympathized with my evident anxiety and stress and instantly made me feel as ease and assured me they had everything under control (which they did). The Director, Rob, called me right away to go through my preferred song selections, made sure he had a clear understanding of our musical tastes for the cocktail hour and dinner portion of the day in order to relay everything appropriately to our newly appointed DJ.

Fast-forward to our wedding and DJ Mitch. It was like it was meant to be. DJ Mitch was so wonderful with our guests, he followed the instructions I shared with Rob perfectly and really helped make our wedding day so wonderful through his music and DJ’ing skills! Our guests even commented on his energy and professionalism!

All in all, we were so lucky BE Weddings was so wonderful in making what could have been a really unfortunate situation a positive one!

We have the highest praise for DJ Mitch. He was by far the easiest and best vendor of all the ones we worked with. He insisted on meeting us to get to know us, worked with us on selecting the song lists for each part of the wedding, followed up with a call just before the wedding to confirm everything, was on time, modified things when the reception went slightly off script, genuinely seemed to have fun playing the music and was very personable, was great at leading the line dances, handled the brief generator outage professionally, and followed up afterwards to thank us. DJ Mitch was by far more professional than other vendors we used who have been in business much, much longer. We highly recommend him!

Our DJ Robert Greel was awesome! We saw him do our friend's wedding and knew that he needed to do ours.
It was very easy to book and plan everything. We scheduled an appointment to meet up with him in Cambridge to talk about what type of music we liked etc. He talked us through different time lines we could do which was very helpful. I ended up giving him a huge list of songs I liked because I am anal like that.
When the day came, everything went perfectly. The flow was great. We knew exactly when each event should happen (the speeches, cake cutting, etc) so we didn't have to worry about that on our day. He even put together a sick mix for my wife and I to do a special dance to later on in the night. He went above and beyond our expectations!

DJ Mitch was very professional, patient, and hard working. We had an Armenian wedding with many demands that he did not fall short from delivering. We had him play different types of music (including Armenian and Arabic music that he researched on his own even without us telling him to)! He was great and I would recommend him to anyone/everyone! Very professional and pleasant to work with as well. I would 100% use him again if I ever need another DJ.

Oh, and as a side note, he did our rehearsal dinner too... where once again, he did an AMAZING job!!!

I cannot say enough good things about DJ El Ray! He was the best DJ for our wedding that we could have hoped for! From the moment we met him he was professional and fun. He was always quick to respond to our e-mails and phone calls and made us feel valued. As for the wedding reception, he did a great job picking dinner music and dance music. From the moment the dance floor opened until the end of the wedding people were tearing up the dance floor. We had multiple guests tell us he was the best wedding DJ they had ever heard. We were so glad that DJ El Ray was able to transition a formal dinner into an epic party. Thank you!!!"

DJ Nora was FANTASTIC and working with BE Weddings was so easy! Nora took the time to understand the songs/artists/genre of music we like, and created a wedding playlist that rivaled any dance/wedding I've ever been to. Nora got the crowd out of their seats for the entire wedding. I was told many times over how impressive her music selection was, and how professional she was. I would recommend Nora, Robert and Kevin at BE Weddings to anyone planning a wedding who wants to have top entertainment!

The Rockin' Soul Horns were fantastic! We booked them after hearing only two other bands, but bands were booking up really quickly so we didn't want to wait. As a result, we were a little nervous about how it would turn out but now realize we had absolutely no reason to be because they were amazing! We got a ton of compliments from our guests on how great the band was. Everyone was dancing the entire night. Plus, they were great to work with - they had no problem with the songs we requested for first dance and parents dances, even though none were technically on their song list. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Hiring the band Charisma through BE Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Some of our family were skeptical about not going with a DJ, but they soon found out that nothing is better than live music. Charisma was so energetic, entertaining, attentive to the crowd, and super professional. They were incredible at singing our first dance "Smile" by Uncle Kracker to a great, danceable tempo. During our reception we had to adjust our timeline in quite a few spots because of extra time for family photos and an impromptu tea ceremony; they took care of the adjustments and announcements without a hitch. Everyone was on the dance floor having the time of their life. Thank you for making our wedding reception a night to remember.

We had Groove Alliance for our daughter's wedding celebration and they were absolutely awesome. Just incredible. They played virtually non-stop for four hours, and so compellingly that the dance floor was full all night. The food was wonderful, the setting on the edge of the harbor was breath-taking, the occasion was a very happy one, but I have to say, Groove Alliance really made the party.

Boston Party Machine was the BEST wedding band EVER!!! They made the entire wedding. They learned all the songs I requested and played them flawlessly. They created the perfect playlist based on our easy conversing back and forth and a questionnaire. They played just the right amount of everything. All ages could not get enough. We didn't stop dancing the ENTIRE night. I have had more calls and emails saying we had the best wedding because of the band. They totally made the night!! Hands down they killed it!

All of our guests were equally impressed and are still talking about good the band was. Thank you Common Good and BE Weddings for bringing us together! Read less

My new husband and I used the band Do I Do at our August 17, 2013 wedding in Ludlow, VT. We booked them through BE Weddings and it was an extremely seamless process. The booking agent was flexible and helpful and when we were selecting our wedding band, helped us identify the type of band that would not only fit our personalities and style, but our budget. The band themselves were phenomenal and even better than we imagined. It felt like such a gamble selecting a 6-piece band that we have never seen live before for such a special day, but they exceeded our expectations by lightyears. They were flexible, fun, and perfect for our evening - guests were raving about them for days afterwards and we got more comments about the band than any other aspect of the wedding. People I have never seen dancing in years were on the dancefloor with us all night. It was a very special evening for us, and we would highly recommend that people use BE Weddings and Do I Do for their event!

I appreciate good music and love to dance, but did not want to be personally tasked with putting together the perfect wedding playlist. Nora took all of the stress out of wedding planning when it came to music. Our ceremony went flawlessly, and the reception was a blast. Just a few notes about what types of music and artists we liked and Nora was able to put together a playlist that added to the perfect evening. I highly recommend Nora Jordan!

My fiance and I were looking for a fun, hip non-cheesy dj for our 8/12/12 wedding. We happened upon BE Wedding Entertainment online and I was promptly contacted by Kevin. He referred us to DJ Goldie and we were not disappointed!

DJ Goldie was super professional, showed up on time, set up quickly and was so friendly and easy to work with. He used a good selection of songs from our song list and our guests had so much fun dancing the night away. We did not have a wedding planner so it was super helpful that DJ Goldie and our photographer worked together to keep us on track with our timeline. Again if you are looking for a cool, friendly dj at a great price call BE entertainment!

It all worked out very well - he read the crowd well, and everyone thought he did a great job. We danced our buns off!

On the day of the event, J Boogz was energetic and entertaining - he kept our party dancing most of the night - from kids to the adults. I would definitely recommend him.

Groove Authority was the BEST band we could have asked for. We received more comments on the amazing band than anything else! A couple people got their info because they NEEDED to have them at their own events. The energy this group brings is like no other! People were on the dance floor for every single song. My favorite part is that they dance a bit themselves! A very unique band with amazing voices, and a perfect choice of music. I was just as blown away as all of my guests. Behind the scenes they’re very professional and experienced. I would certainly suggest this band for anyone looking to have a lively event!

> Kevin was very pleasant and very persistent - it totally paid off and resulted in us going to the HardRock showcase in Boston. Hiring the band was the SINGLE BEST DECISION WE MADE REGARDING OUR WEDDING!! The best D.J. in the world wouldn't have been able to provide the same vibe and we were complemented by each and every guest - of all ages - how amazing the band was...the song selection, the musical quality, the singers, the look - everything was EXACTLY what we wanted! Kevin had DJ options for us too but convined us that a band was worth its weight in gold and he was sooo right - without the live band, we couldn't have had THE BEST WEDDING EVER!!!

The band itself 'Now and The Forevers' were FREAKING AMAZING!!!
They were really the only band that we saw at the showcase that even came close to what we were looing for, and frankly the only wedding band I've ever seen that didn't seem like a "wedding band"...my husband and I have eclectic music tastes and we were convinced that we couldn't have both the music we love and make it accessible to grandparents, parents and friends all in one place - but this band proved us wrong. I cant get over the song choices: David Bowie, Biz Markie, Nat King Cole, Adelle, The Beatles... b-sides Talking Heads?!!! are you kidding me?! AMAZING!!! Somehow they took their already amazing list of songs and narrowed it down to the most perfect set of songs that seemed tailor-made for us. SO, SO, GREAT! I hope someone else that we know hires them and then invites us to their wedding!

He was helpful in offering suggestions for music and the order of events for our wedding ceremony without being pushy. For the reception he had a great DJ personality that wasn't too "out there" but also kept everyone having fun and dancing. We even got lots of great feedback from our wedding guests about how great a DJ he was. The charge for our reception also seemed very reasonable compared to other DJs we reasearched in the area. Highly recommended!

We were originally going to have a laptop set up but changed our minds at the last minute. We decided that we needed an Emcee to keep the flow of the event going. We went to one of the BE wedding open houses at the Hard Rock café in Boston – just to check it out. We met Jeff Mader who heads up the DJ team and he said that DJ Ryan was available on our wedding date. He gave us a great price - $1200 for 6 ½ hours. Ryan played music at our ceremony, during the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. From the beginning, we loved Ryan. He got that we wanted specific music and that we were non-traditional (we played an instrumental version of Friday I’m in Love by the Cure for the bridal march). He listened to us but also shared his wisdom. He even drove down from New Hampshire on a rainy night to meet us at the venue. We had concerns about location of the DJ booth during the ceremony so we met to discuss. He even sent a text when he was running late. He was the only vendor to follow up with me the week of the wedding (he beat me to it).

We had one glitch: the mother/son song was the wrong file. His computer screen said it was the right song but the audio file was wrong. He was mortified and apologized profusely. He also gave us an additional 30 minutes to make up for it. My husband told him that he had given us a moment to remember and laugh about later. Most people didn't even notice. Had Ryan not been so attentive during the planning process, we might have been upset but we knew it was an honest mistake. We would still highly recommend DJ Ryan.
The music was fantastic. All of our guests were on the dance floor (people ranging from 30 to 65) to the point where there wasn't any room on it. People are still sending my parents emails about how much fun they had dancing. My hubby and I spent the night on the dance floor. It was awesome!

Rare Form Band and their professionals were absolutely fantastic!! Responses to questions were always prompt and friendly and everything was done with complete professionalism.

The band itself was AMAZING! I am still getting compliments on how great Rare Form Band was! They can play EVERYTHING! For a moment it sounded like Robert Plant was actually there to sing our first dance song... I highly recommend Rare Form Band and everyone that works with them. They were grade A, top shelf, and one of a kind.

We couldn't imagine a better DJ for our wedding than Mitch. We chose Mitch with the help of DJ El Ray who was helpful throughout the process. From the beginning it seemed we were on the same page, but they weren't satisfied until we were sure everything was exactly right. Before we finalized our decision we were able to watch DJ Mitch in action aboard the Spirit of Boston. We were impressed with his enthusiasm in the face of what looked like a passive crowd. By the end of the night he had everyone doing the Cupid Shuffle. Once we were sure Mitch was our guy, he contacted us directly to set up a meeting. He was punctual, thorough, and we had a good time just hanging out. We met with him two more times, each time with more demands and more specific instructions. He took it in stride and we were confident he would do a great job. On the day of, he exceeded our expectations. His song selections were spot on and his interactions with the crowd were always well timed. We were concerned at the beginning of our search that having our DJ emcee would mean an overwrought, radio personality type introduction. We shared this concern with Mitch and he understood immediately. His style of speaking and engaging the audience made it seem more like he was our good friend who happened to be good at public speaking. Best of all, when it came time for dancing, Mitch knew by a nod or even a funny look what we were trying to communicate and the music was seamless. He also helped me show my wife that you really can dance to The Eurythmics! I would recommend BE Wedding Entertainment and especially DJ Mitch to any couple.

DJ Mitch took the time to speak with us a few weeks before the event so we could discuss our tastes, how we wanted the evening to unfold and what kind of presence we wanted him to have as an MC. He not only worked in all of our requests, but also built on our tastes to create a really wonderful playlist that hit all the right notes while also paying careful attention to the way the party developed on its own. He gracefully took requests, made a few announcements, worked in a karaoke number and even dug up a perfect, marvelously raucous version of the hava nagila. It wouldn't have been such a wonderful party without him. In short, we highly recommend DJ Mitch!

Kevin was phenomenal and helped us find our band - Afterparty. They were great! They provided a jazz trio for the cocktail hour and 4 hours of reception music for a very reasonable price. We heard lots of compliments from our guests. They played all our "must plays," and did a great job MCing the night. Our friends and family danced all night. The band played music even as they were packing up at the end of the night, and people didn't want to get off the dance floor. They really played great music, including some Johnny Cash and Sublime's cover of Scarlett Begonias. Their whole playlist is really great. I definitely recommend them!

Mitch Daniel was an excellent DJ and perfect for our wedding. He listened to what we were looking for and gave us exactly that, only better! His style was spot on for us: genuine, suave, and energetic without being over the top.

Stephanie Correia was awesome as our photographer. She coralled our rambunctious families and wedding party into perfect photos in just 30 minutes so we could get to our cocktail hour on time. Throughout the event, she got all the right shots without interrupting the flow of things. She is easy to work with, friendly and professional.

DJ El Rey was a good coordinator throughout. He was helpful and patient in matching us up with the right people.

We highly recommend all three of them.

We had DJ El Rey from BE Weddings at as our DJ for the reception and cocktail hour and he was spectacular!

We found him at one of the band night showcases that BE Weddings does at Johnny D's in Somerville. We actually talked to another DJ there and when we described the type of DJ we wanted, he pointed us to DJ El Rey.

Both my husband and I have large, vocal and diverse families and friends. We needed a DJ that could wrangle the crowd and keep the party going, and he did just that.

We had kids at the wedding and we requested some songs that were not kid appropriate (without knowing it). He listened to the songs in advance and let us know, and gave us alternatives - so helpful!

He kept everyone on the dance floor for the rest of the night and kept everyone in line. He was more $ than we originally wanted to spend, but worth it (and less than some of the other DJs we talked to). I'm so glad he was part of the wedding and would recommend him again.

We provided him with a good list of must play songs and do not play songs, as well as the general vibe/feel of the music we wanted for different parts of our wedding ceremony/coctail hr/dinner/reception and he really did a great job selecting music that fit our tastes, as well as reading the crowd and keeping the party lively. We had probably 98% dancing participation the whole night, even up until the night ended! (Even my deaf grandmother with a walker was up on the side of the dance floor, not wanting to miss out on anything!). When I rate BE entertainment, I'm really just rating DJ. Shyne, who was awesome.

I wasn't originally going to have a DJ because everyone I talked to would cost between $1000-$2000. However, about a month before my wedding I figured I'd try again and through BE Weddings I found David Roth and it was only $500 for 6 hours! THANK YOU!!! He did a great job, I gave him a list of what I wanted played and he stuck to it well, he was nice, dressed professionally and there were no problems. I'd recommend him to anyone.

DJ Lee definitely knew how to keep the dance floor packed! The music was lively and energetic all night and he took our song requests into account all along the way. The only issue we encountered was in regards to the direction of a speaker. At the beginning of the night, one speaker was facing a table with a sleeping baby and the family had to complain a couple of times before it was resolved when the father of the groom stepped in. While we wish we'd realized this was a problem sooner, it was solved after that point, and the evening was a great success. Thank you so much!

We used the now and the forevers for our wedding. They put on an amazing show! They are a super fun, young, and energetic band who really knows how to get the crowd going. They also learned some songs at our request which was awesome.

We did have some communication problems. We found the agent unable to answer many of our questions. I left messages for the band leader, but he did not call back until the week of the event. I wish we could have spoken more to make sure we were in the same page. The performance did not go exactly how I envisioned. For example, we thought they would start playing after dinner, but they performed during dinner as well. Also, I wish they had played more pop songs that they have on their website.

Overall, they were incredibly talented and fun but a bit frustrating leading up to the event. If you trust they will show up and can defer to their expertise, you will love them.

We attended a wedding showcase where we were able to view a number of wedding bands which was extremely helpful. Kevin Baker was very professional in his dealings but my one criticism would be that once we booked, we never heard from BE Entertainment again. It would have been nice to recieve a check-in email just to know that we were still confirmed with the band. We had to reach out to the band before the wedding to work out all of the logistics. There was no other interaction from BE.

First off let me say I hate to give bad reviews, but I also hate to think of other brides having a disappointing experience like I had. The company was pretty good to deal with, they got back to me quickly, stayed within my budget, really had no problems. The issue was with the dj, who I liked and thought was very nice. I was super excited to get Dj joe Pet for my wedding. The problem was that he forgot to send me the worksheet for the wedding music and by the time I got it and he needed it back by, I really didnt have as much time as I needed to figure it all out. I was really surprised when at the wedding there were many songs played I had deleted from my playlist(they were most of the songs that were played actually). Also, i requested no hiphop be played...bc I knew most of my husbands family (and half of my own) would not like it. Sadly, it was played.
I was also really disappointed that DJ Pet, whom was named in our contract to be my dj and master of ceremonies, had throat surgery right before the wedding and was unable to mc the wedding and had to have his assistant do it...who in my opinion was not nearly as good as DJ Pet (from the videos I saw).
Lastly, I requested that there be no father/daughter dance and in the middle of the reception, when I was half in the bag, I was taken by surprise when the dj came up and told me the song was all set for that dance, then announced it....wtf?
I was just really really disappointed.

BE Weddings responded with the following comments:

Response from DJ Joe Pet:

1. Getting the worksheet on time or what I call a Bridal planner

As soon as I get confirmations of an event I routinely add and send
Bridal Party Planner and the Event Time line form and access to my entire song library. Upon knowing a deposit for the wedding had been received I sent out the appropriate information. Occasionally people not realizing who sent the email may delete it accidently or it may get sent to a spam folder and never seen or deleted. She didn't notify me that she never received it and when I called 2 weeks prior to the wedding which is my policy she told me she didn't get it. I would have thought she would have let me know long before I got in touch to set up a consultation to go over the details prior to the wedding.

2. I was told not to take requests from a specific person and someone would point out who that person was which I did according to her instruction. The songs I played were requests from her guests which I was told I could take. In fact once I started taking requests is when people finally started to dance.

3. As far as surgery, I had no choice.... After a routine check up, my
doctor wanted me to go into surgery immediately because he would not be available until July. Instead of getting the Bride upset I told her I would DJ the event and had one of my best MC's w/ 30 years experience MC the wedding that I paid for out of my own pocket. I'm sorry if she was disappointed I did everything I was told and there was no hidden agenda.

I initially was going to not have a DJ and just go the ipod and speaker rental route. But Boston Event Works gave me $600 DJ deal I couldn't pass up. Big mistake. I initially signed up for a different DJ but when the discounted rate changed, so did the DJ. DJ Jesse Potter did not have a website or any sample audio/video files I could review. I trusted BEW and DJ Jesse when they said he did many many weddings and he was professional and experienced. My husband provided him with 140 songs to fill the preceremony, cocktail, and dinner with; then just a sample of the type of dance music we liked and asked him to choose similar music in the top 40/hip hop genre. We also filled the DJ procedure list stating important songs such as ceremony processional, bridal walk, post ceremony walk, intro reception song, first dance, etc. The DJ played the wrong post ceremony song, did not play ANY music during cocktail hour, wrong intro song, and wrong first dance song!!! He did not make any announcement of the first dance so when he played the wrong first dance song, we stood there wondering what the hell was going on). During the dancing portion of the reception he kept repeating the same songs over and over and when he didn't repeat he played techno instead of what we requested. When guests asked to change the music he blamed the song choices on my husband.
Thank god my guests are fun and easy going and had a great time anyways. I brought up all these issues a couple of days after the wedding because I didn't want to ruin the wedding and cause a scene. The DJ did not apologize or admit to any wrong doing.

ALL and ALL...a disaster!!! Boston Event Works did its best afterwards to remedy the situation and their customer service is good. But I would not recommend DJ Jesse Potter.

BE Weddings responded with the following comments:

As one of the largest suppliers of the Very Best Wedding Entertainment to New England since 1980, we qualify all the Performers we hire and all I can say is Jesse Potter denies most of these incrimination's. Sure, there were some errors, but Jesse charges $600.00 and the client dealt with the DJ as if she was paying $2500.00. Not many DJ's perform EVERY SONG that is listed and if they do, they charge accordingly. The client says, people didn't know the difference and had a good time anyway. Seems to be, only the Bride was upset here. There were 3 people who was at this event that has reported that "everything seemed to be going great" or "I didn't know of any issues". At one point the client accused the DJ that he was smoking while performing. I ask the DJ that and his response was; "Are you kidding me". File under: We try to please everyone, all the time but you can't please everyone all the time, as they say.

Thank you,

Sincerely,

Warren Scott
