When my fiance and I decided we were going with a DJ (instead of a band) we wanted to make sure we were happy with our decision. I have to say, it was a fantastic decision! We were so glad to have not only a DJ but also an emcee. Walt and Joey Beef did a phenomenal job. They were easy to communicate with when we needed anything, the Charizma website is super user friendly and convenient, and Walt is entertaining! Not only did they communicate with me, but also my bridesmaids to plan a surprise flash mob of my dance students. Unreal!! So many people came up to us and stated, "Your DJ is the best one we have seen!" I have to agree because they played our songs we requested but they also read the room. People were dancing from their tables waiting for dinner and they were dancing on the floor until the lights came up and it was time to leave. Now that's a good party! Thank you Charizma for making our night memorable and enjoyable!

Marz, Arianna and the whole Charizma team were fantastic to work with. They made us feel as if we were part of their family and they were part of ours. As a nervous bride I had not a care in the world with this team leading my wedding. They were fantastic. We also had the opportunity to work with Arianna as a choreographer for our first dance. We nailed it! The dance was the hit of the party and let our personalities and love for each other shine. Thank you Charizma! We had the best experience.

Charizma Entertainment was awesome. We had Marz( the owner). He was engaged with our wedding guests of all ages and my grandsons were able to go and talk to him and ask question about DJ's. He assisted with the timeline with our venue contact. He also made deciding on the music for our ceremony and reception so easy and offered great suggestions. Everyone had a ball and enjoyed the music.

Thank you Marz and Charizma Staff for making our special day a memory to always remember.

PICK THIS DJ. Every single person I have talked to about my wedding has talked about how amazing the party was, and how we have "ruined" wedding DJ's for them (I simply tell them to call Charizma themselves). This was directly because of the amazing work by Walt, or as my groomsmen have nicknamed him "DJ Funky Bunch". When we first had our consultation with Charizma, we were a little concerned. We were a little wary about the "one-minute dance parties" and whether or not we really needed an emcee. Trust me, having Walt or another Charizma emcee will help your party move so smoothly. We were sold by attending another wedding in July 2015. Walt knew how to get the dance floor full, and when he couldn't he had the couple do the bouquet or garter toss, or the chair game. We booked the second we got home. Working with Walt is so easy, he's an amazing person with the most easygoing personality. Our wedding was the most smooth sailing party ever. Somehow he took our vague answers on our "party style" during the consultation and magically turned it into a playlist better than we could have come up with ourselves. The floor was packed all night, and Walt was in the middle the whole time giving everyone dance moves to try. And remember those "one-minute dance parties" that I was worried about? The first one, my relatives that I was a bit concerned would think it was lame or cheesy went nuts and danced on the chairs. The next one, they didn't even stay at the tables and bum-rushed the dance floor. And the floor really didn't clear from then on, minus when we had to stop for a few minutes to toss stuff. April 2 was the greatest night of my life, my husband and I danced the night away and had a night that everyone will remember for a very long time. Thank you Walt and Charizma :)

I had discovered Charizma very early on in our wedding planning through the very first Bridal Expo I had visited. When it was time to start booking a DJ, my finace and I went through all the cards we had picked up at all the events and explored each website. Our initial interest began at www.doyouhavecharizma.com. They had so many things to offer; DJ/MC combination, uplighting, lounge chairs, air bar, professional club dancers, etc. It seemed like they really knew how to throw a party. We contacted them and they were wonderful to work with. Each person we came in contact with was personable and very easy to communicate with. Arianna, our MC that night, was even able to meet with us over Skype a few times since we lived 3 hours away from our wedding venue and Charizma. The wedding planning website is very easy to use to access. The made our monogram light for the dance floor and it was stunning. DJ Flo knows how to do his job! He is phenomenal - and that's coming from us, who both majored in music in college!! He knew how to make great transitions and mixes and he was great at reading the crowd and the interests of each song! Arianna also did a great job keeping everyone partying hard. (And her dance moves to Single Ladies is great, too!) All in all, they are a wonderful company. If I were to do it all again, I would most definitely choose Charizma again!

Our wedding night was absolutely unforgettable and Walt/Charizma Entertainment was a huge part of that! He knew exactly how to read the crowd to determine what to play at certain moments in the night and he knew how to get the group rowdy! For the price we paid, our expectations were absolutely blown away. I am recommending Charizma Entertainment to anyone and any type of event. Besides getting married, the music/DJ entertainment was the highlight of the evening.

Marz and his team were professional and made us feel completely at ease. They did a FANTASTIC job DJing and Emceeing the event. We had many guests coming up to us after the wedding asking us for Charizma's contact information as they had never experienced this quality of an event in the past. I would recommend Marz and his team without hesitation!
