Congratulations on your engagement! This is a very exciting time for you, and through it all you have a lot of important decisions to make. By now you’ve begun to research the single most important part of your reception. Music. All brides and grooms want the same thing for their reception: the best party any of their guests have ever attended. Great, now how do you reach that goal? Big Apple Entertainment is the answer.
Why us? Experience, skill, talent and creativity. As the industry leader for over thirty years strong we have by far the most experienced staff around.

Our vibrant MC’s and gifted DJ’s will provide a fun, exciting atmosphere without sacrificing the elegance of your affair. Our staff will assist you in selecting the perfect musical arrangements to suit your own style and taste, rather than play from some sort of pre-arranged program.

State of the art sound systems, innovative lighting options and the best part – versatile MC’s and DJ’s that know how to make you and your guests dance like you’ve never danced before.

Big Apple is by far the best in the industry when it comes to dj's! from the minute I met Paul, he was personable, professional, super friendly, and really talked to my parents and I for a while and made us feel so comfortable. Needless to say, we thought he was great and hired him for the big day! its so important to have great music at a wedding and I was really nervous as a bride that everything would turn out perfect (i'm a bit of a control freak and my dad had a huge playlist of what he wanted at my wedding too. Between the 2 of us I joked with Paul saying we were gonna drive him crazy! lol) but honestly I knew Paul and his staff would deliver and they actually went above and beyond what I could possibly even imagine! he had my guests dancing and partying to the point where we didn't want the night to end! he would come over to us to make sure all was ok and Paul was an awesome MC! every time i looked around people were out on the dance floor dancing and having a great time! i've already gotten asked who my amazing dj company was and I hope they use Big Apple for their special day as well! Thank you again Paul for going above and beyond for us and for being more than we could have ever hoped for! I enjoyed myself so much and so did Eddie. He raved about you guys!! I know my dad too had the time of his life when he heard the songs that he had requested and they were played! I can't wait to use you guys again in the future! If your a bride or a groom and you want perfect music on your wedding day (as you should!) then look no further than Big Apple! i can guarantee you will not be dissapointed! thanks again!

My wife and myself booked Big Apple after hearing great things about them from a family friend. We ended up using all their services. Specifically their dj, photography, and video services. I could not express how professional, fun, outgoing, and meticulous he and his staff were from the beginning of the planning process to the day/night of the wedding. Paul and his staff customized everything to our liking. For example we are both huge Disney fans and we were both able to get a little bit of our favorite disney elements in with her instrumental beauty and the beast song for her walking into the chapel, and my muppet song on the processional out of the chapel. We both had an expectation of the night in our head already planned out, and they went completely above and beyond our expectations. Do not hesitate to hire them they do an above and beyond job with everything, more importantly they make you feel like family.

The first time we met with Paul at Big Apple, my wife and I were not very knowledgeable about the wedding process. We went in there thinking we would be getting a DJ, Video, and Photography package, but what we wound up with was a wedding consultant.
Paul took hours out of his busy day to walk us through every aspect of the wedding day, from the timing and flow of the day, to the limo, to makeup and hair. We would have never thought of any of those details had Paul not walked us through them. Because of that extra care and attention, our wedding day had no surprises and was a smashing success.
Service: As soon as we arrived, Paul was there to greet us and keep us on time. We had told him beforehand we wanted to enjoy our cocktail hour, and he made it so we did. When it was time for the bridal party entrance, Paul was there giving us instructions and making sure we were on time. We REALLY appreciated his attention to details.
Paul and Vinny were our DJ and MC combo. From our first song to the last dance, these two were AMAZING. My wife and I still get chills when we think about how perfectly our first dance went because of Paul. We were alone for the right amount of time, and he had everyone join in at the exact right moment. He made us a memory we will always cherish.
The music selection was always on point as well. He played all different types of music so everyone would be on the dance floor at all times. Paul’s personality as MC was unmatched. Everyone afterwards told us how great the music was at our wedding. And the dance floor was never empty.
During the wedding, the consultation did not stop. He would come up to us and tell us when we should go around and greet everyone. He should offer services as a wedding planner in addition to his great DJ service.
My wife and I have been to weddings afterwards, and after seeing other DJs, it made us appreciate Big Apple Entertainment even more. Thank you Big Apple for everything you did for us!

This was a recommendation from our wedding planner. We originally wanted to go with a band. We could not be happier with having Eric DeSoto and DJ React running the show for our guests. I cannot recall a single moment from the entire day where our dance floor was not nearly packed. Eric had people on their feet from beginning to the very end. Meeting with Eric and Paul beforehand, during planning, was always a good experience. They are so friendly and accommodating. They made important decisions about music and entertainment very easy, and alleviated the anxiety that comes with wondering if we were making the right decision when it comes to something as important as music! When it comes to wedding entertainment there is no other choice.

My husband Tom and I used Big Apple Entertainment for our wedding on May 4th, 2013. Paul was our MC and he did an AMAZING job! We had and continue to have so many complements on the music for our wedding. People have been saying they didn't want to get off the dance floor and everyone said they were so sad to see the wedding end. Paul was outstanding, he made us feel at ease as he prepped us for what was going to be happening throughout the night. We are beyond happy and impressed with Big Apple and we HIGHLY recommend them for a wedding or any event!! Absolutely amazing!

Big Apple Entertainment was our DJ for our wedding. From the very beginning Paul was great with not only advice for musical choices but advice for the overall day. His presence made our day very special, everyone was on the dance floor and he provided a variety of musical tastes to make everyone happy. We are still hearing compliments about our wedding. Their partner, Visual Impressions provided our photography and video. They were amazing! Again they were professional and great guys! We are getting a lot of rave reviews for our pictures as well. The entire team was great and I would recommend them highly!

Big Apple was the first and only DJ we interviewed for our wedding, and after meeting Paul, we didn’t need to look any further! We were referred to Big Apple by friends who had already hired them for their wedding. After much wedding planning, we found that word-of-mouth references were definitely the best. Having a personal reference for a vendor makes a big difference. We met with Paul, and we were sold! He has been in this business for many years, and his experience shows. He walked us through every moment of what would happen during the reception, and made sure to spend extra time with us, going over our music and party preferences. Paul was meticulous about having every detail just the way we wanted it, reassuring us that all of our “do’s and don’ts” would be honored. All of our guests raved about the music, and my husband and I didn’t stop dancing all night! It was a great party, due largely to the professionalism and expertise of Big Apple.

With an eclectic mix of amazing music, Big Apple had the guests dancing all night! Every guest has told us how much they loved the music. The night could not have gone so smoothly without our MC, Vinny. With great attention to detail and professionalism, Vinny seamlessly led us from our entrance as bride and groom, to the last dance. We recommend Big Apple to everyone!
