Congratulations on your upcoming Celebration!

You want your Party to be Fun, Unique and Memorable. Here’s what a client recently wrote:

“It was wonderful to work with you. I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did with our party.
You made the party. You are able to anticipate everything for the evening to go smoothly.
The songs were terrific and you kept the music going and the dance floor wasn't empty.
People who I never expected to stick around and dance were doing so until the end of the evening.
You are such a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to plan our next event with you!!!” Read less

Peter Merkle exceeded our expectations and made sure our day was exactly what we wanted. He helped to make the planning process easy and we were confident that our day would run so smoothly. Peter pays close attention to details and his expertise in the field was evident. We had numerous compliments from our guests about his professionalism as well as the music choices. We were pleased to see that the dance floor stayed full the entire night; we attribute our guests’ enjoyment to Peter’s diligence and knowledge of his profession. We could not have asked for a better person for the job. We highly recommend Global Heart Entertainment, specifically Peter Merkle, for any event!

Peter was absolutely wonderful! He was very flexible and was willing to do everything we asked. We had an outdoor wedding and of course 2 hours before the ceremony started we were moving things around because of weather. Our ceremony ended up more beautiful then I imagined. Peter was there every step of the way.

Our reception was equally wonderful. He kept everyone on the dance floor until the last song. Our hotel said we made history....they did not get any calls from our guests to be picked up early! Peter really loves what he does, and it shows. My sister and I have both used Peter as our DJ and we could not have been more happy! Thank you so much Peter!

I would highly recommend Global Heart. We worked with Peter and the service was truely wonderful. He met with us personally several times and we had serveral phone conversations to make sure our wedding was unique and exactly what we wanted. Peter also MC'd and he added several touches that our guests are still talking about! He kept us on schedule and coordinated everything very well with all of our vendors. Food and music are what make a wedding and I can't say enough great things about Peter and Global Heart. He helped to make our dream wedding a reality.
