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.

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!

I was very happy when we decided to use Big Apple's DJ's at our Wedding, from our very first meeting with them, we knew that was one aspect of the Wedding that we didn't have to worry about. From our initial visit with Paul, to our meeting with Eric (MC) and Vinny (DJ), they treated us like VIP's and listened to what WE wanted. On the day of our Wedding, they did everything we had discussed...as a Bride, it is nice to not have to worry about things on your wedding day. I would and already have recommended them...from one Bride to another....if you choose Big Apple, you will not be dissappointed!

We couldn't have been happier with Eric and his DJs... Everything was wonderful. We keep having guests tell us how great the music was and we couldn't agree more. After speaking with Eric at a bridal show, I knew instantly that I wanted him to do the wedding... he was so easy to talk to, and he totally understood everything that we wanted and didn't want. We tell everyone that we knew that we picked him because he was the kind of guy we would want to hang out with! We just felt like he "got us" right off the bat. For people who don't want the DJ to be a "show", but wants someone who knows good music and can read a room... Eric is your man!

Overall, Big Apple, and Paul specifically, was a pleasure to work with. Paul did a great job on the mic and with the music. People were dancing until the very end of the night. There was a small flub where the music stopped for about 30 seconds, but Paul and his team fixed it and got the party going again. I would definitely recommend this vendor.

From start to finish Big Apple Entertainment was FANTASTIC. They were reasonably priced and worth far more than they charged! They played everything we asked them to, and kept the party lively and fun. Our guests ranged from 4 years old to 83 years old and they all loved the music...we danced the entire night! In addition, Paul was a great MC. He worked very well with our other vendors, he kept the crowd engaged without intruding on our family time, and most importantly he helped guide my husband and I through our reception, explaining and preparing us for all that was about to happen. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any event. Thank you Big Apple!!

I LOVE Eric and this company. We got married in July and I have been to over 4 weddings with Big Apple and knew I wanted them as my DJ for the wedding. Eric played everything we were looking for. My husband is a huge underground hip-hop fan and he sent Eric all the music that they couldn't find, which was great because they were able to play all of his music. The entire time we had so much fun and the music was non-stop. My wedding guests are still talking about how they never stopped dancing throughout the entire wedding.

My husband and I are so happy we chose Big Apple Entertainment as our DJ for our wedding, Paul and his crew are excellent, so great to work with. They catered to our exact requests to take our guests on a journey of music through the decades to keep everyone up and dancing, and that was all that needed to be said as Paul's experience and ability to read a crowd are exceptional. Not one person sat down the entire night!! There was such a variety of music, there really was something to please everyone! Paul is a great MC as well, perfectly coordinating his dance sets with the timing of the courses being served at the reception along with the Maitre'D, plus he smoothly handled any change of plans we had for him during the night. I can't thank them enough for keeping our party going all night long, I have gotten so many wonderful compliments from our guests as to what a great party it was and who was the DJ? Thank you for everything!!!

Big Apple was great. From start to finish Eric DeSoto was a wonderful planner and MC. He helped us to get what we wanted within our budget, helped me to pick song selections when I was having trouble, gave us great ideas for slideshow and other things and was such a wonderful MC the night of our wedding.

We had a live percussioneist and the guests thought it was so cool that they could play along. Also, my husband is Cuban and I am not hispanic so Eric made sure to play a mix of both American and Spanish music that everyone enjoyed.

Overall they were couteous and professional and I highly recommend them.

For their 10-31-09 Wedding, our daughter and new son-in-law chose Big Apple Entertainment as their DJ's. They listened and made very helpful suggestions while giving us a great deal on their entire entertainment package! Their special effects, photo montage and tremendous ability to get the crowd up and continually dancing was truly amazing! Paul and his staff continuously read the crowd and keep the music fresh, so the party is never-ending.They offer a 4-part plan for billing which makes payment very reasonable. Bravo to Big Apple Entertainment!!!

They are super friendly and very knowledgeable of every song imaginable! THey gave me a great deal on our package.

The DJ and MC were absolutely professional. They played a good mix of music and were not pushy or cheesy at all. They were also able to provide a live jazz/classical guitarist for the cocktail hour.

Everyone knows your food and your DJ can make or break your wedding! In my case Big Apple Entertainment made my wedding the talk of the town! Our guests were asking us for their business cards all night! Even after the wedding we continued to get inquiries about where we got our DJ from. One guest even called and asked us for our play list. We told him we didnt have one, aside from the songs for the key moments i.e.( first dance, cake cutting, entry songs etc) we just gave the DJ an idea of the music we wanted him to play and he did his thing!
The DJ/MC we worked with was Eric and his partner (sorry can't remember his name). We met with Eric and I liked him as soon as we began talking. He was very personable, funny and full of knowledge when it came to music of all different genres.The price was great, and if you use VIP Country Club for your venue you get a discount with Big Apple because they do so much work there. Our dance floor was full from the moment they began playing music. If you choose them you wont be disappointed!

Big Apple Entertainment got 185 people onto the dance floor and KEPT them on the dance floor at our wedding. I don't think that we could have asked for more. Thank you Eric for all his advice and in the end, he and his crew did their job..."DJ played the music" and kept the party going! He also listened to us when we talked to him about what we wanted to hear and what we didn't. It was just great!

We used Big Apple Entertainment for our DJ, Video and Photography and were absolutely thrilled with all services. We worked with Paul in the office who was fun and full of jokes; however, at our initial meeting he was very professional and presented himself well.

Bill was our photographer. He was pleasant to work with and had a passion for what he does. I really appreciated the phone call he made to me before the wedding to get to know me and make sure he got all of the pictures I wanted.

George was our videographer and he was a riot to work with! His was very fun loving and had all of us laughing all day! George and Bill had a great working relationship which made everything flow seamlessly and added to the fun of the day. We had a slight hiccup in the day with my dress; they both remained calm and worked with my MOH to get the streaks out. Their suggestions worked and thankfully my dress was flawless!

Vinny was our MC, unfortunately I do not remember the name of our DJ, but they were both fantastic!! Vinny came to speak with us for about 5 minutes before the reception to make sure he had all information correct; after that the only time we spoke to him was him checking that everything was going the way we wanted and if we had any requests. He was extremely sensitive to what we wanted and was a pleasure to work with. He cracked jokes and kept our guests laughing, adding to the enjoyment of our evening.

The music was exactly what my husband wanted (music was his main concern!) and we danced all night long. We had chosen a white set up for the DJ and it looked fantastic! Any request we made was played within minutes.

My husband and I met with several DJ companies before deciding; I can honestly say none compared to the service we received with Big Apple. All of the individuals we worked with were professional, dressed the part and made our day stress free and fun!!!

We used Big Apple Entertainment for the dj, photography, and videography. The dj was excellent. We had a large Caribbean population and needed a mixture of reggae and R&B music. Big Apple worked with us on getting a good play list and the music was a success. We had people on the dance floor from the beginning to the end. The dance floor stayed packed which is what we wanted. Our elder relatives told us they had never danced so much in their life.
The photographer and videographer were also great. We spoke with Bill the night before the wedding so he could get a better idea of what shots we definitely wanted. During the ceremony and reception I seldom felt as though there was a camera in front of me. We can't wait to get our pictures and video back to see what an amazing job they've done, but we are sure the pics and video will come out great!
Having the dj and photo/video from the same place worked out well for us. The package for all 3 services was great and in our budget and they also worked with each other to make sure they were capturing all of our special moments. I would definitely recommend Big Apple to anyone that asked.
