INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Country, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Non obtrusive, professional, upbeat, and fun! Laid back, calm, and cool. Very much a "regular kind of guy" type of style (if that's such a thing)!
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No limits! Have fun and request away!!!
What is your usual attire?
Black tie, white tie, formal, semi-formal, beach formal, Cape Cod casual, Dressy casual, or just "casual". We can adapt to pretty much any and all settings!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No! We'll obtain any and all music we do not have. Having a collection larger than any other DJ company we know, there never a concern about not having the music on your request list. If it's something obscure, odd, or different, we do our very best to find it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
Unless requested, all DJ's work alone. One less person to entertain :)
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
No minimum, really. Although, wedding packages are for anywhere up to 5-hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! It's standard practice to meet with all clients at least once prior to their wedding day to go over all of the details of their "game day". During our final meeting with clients (takes place about 4-weeks prior to wedding day), we'll go over all the details of your event.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course! I would rather not play a song or artist that you've either had enough of and/or simply do not like.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes I do! I can't really bring anyone else equipment, now can I? lol
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
If interested, we offer uplighting.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
It takes about 30-45 minutes to comfortably setup a typical system. If we're setting up extra equipment for ceremonies, etc., it will take a little longer. We allow ourselves plenty of time for setup.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Nope!
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No signs...no banners...no cheese or tackiness!
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We'll emcee your wedding. We don't usually talk between songs, unless necessary (informative announcements, transition into something of importance, etc.). No need to worry at all about too much talking on the microphone. That's not us! Just keep them dancing (that's our motto)!!
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Our motivation is "music" and making people feel very comfortable in the setting. Great music and a crowd that feels comfortable to do what they'd like, will basically fill a dance floor! The dancers will dance, and a crowd will follow!!!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No music breaks! That's just how we roll! We're good like that :)
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Music will always be playing at your event!
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
It's never happened in 15 years (trends are friends)! Your event is something that we plan on attending! If in an extreme emergency situation, we will do whatever we can to cover your event with another excellent DJ.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Nope! Your event is like our daily vitamin! One-a-day is perfect!!!
What is your overtime rate?
See our website for all pricing www.crackerjackentertainment.com
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
On most occasions, we do not charge for travel. You may be charged for travel if over 80 miles round-trip. You would be informed prior to your booking if there was a travel charge.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
50% of your event package. On most occasions, this deposit can be split into 2 equal installments over a 30 day period (1/2 with signed contract, 1/2 30-days later)

Wow! My friend was absolutely correct about you, you are amazing! When I first got engaged she mentioned that her DJ (Brett), was the life of her wedding and made it so everyone was dancing and having an amazing time. She had only nice things to say about him. I knew he was the man for the job as soon as she showed me how organized he was. I immediately wrote Brett and made an appointment to meet. Before my fiance met Brett, he thought it would be a good idea to also look at other DJ to compare, but after he met him, he no longer had that idea. We were both so impressed with him. Brett is so easy to work with, extremely organized, on point and he truly knows his music. I have never been to a wedding were that many people were dancing for that long. Everyone had so much fun and that is all because of Brett. I am so grateful and appreciative of him.
Thank you so much for making it such a fun and incredible evening for myself and for my guest!

Brett Heeney and Crackerjack Entertainment were amazing! From the first meeting we had months before the wedding, to the day of our wedding we couldn't have been happier. Brett kept the dance floor busy ALL night long. He used our list of songs to craft an excellent night of entertainment that had everyone dancing! Our guests are still talking about all the fun they had!!

Brett is amazing! He played at our wedding recently, at the end of June, and we were so thrilled! From our first meeting we were hooked, and impressed. To say he is organized would be an understatement. Brett made us feel comfortable, excited, and confident to have him leading our party. His attention to details, compassionate personality, humor, "short" questionnaires, and thoroughness made working with him such a great experience. He was the first "vendor" we met with and boy did he set the bar high! All the way through to the end of the night, Brett was on top of the game. We could not imagine going through the day without his help. The amount of work he puts into one wedding makes you think yours is the only one happening. We could not wait to get the dancing started and he did not disappoint. Brett listened to our concerns, suggestions, and musical taste, and created a night we will never forget! I wish we had another big event coming up so we could hire him again! Anyone who chooses crackerjack entertainment is making the right choice and is sure to have one fun party! Brett, we thank you from the bottom of our worn out dancing shoes! :)

Brett is awesome!! From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew I had made the right choice. He is funny, easy-going, and he knows how to get a party going - and keep it going, ALL night long!!!! One of the most important things to me about my wedding was that I wanted everyone to have fun. I wanted people to leave saying that they had the best time. I knew that the music was probably the most important part in that, and Brett gave us all the best night ever!! Not one single person was sitting in their seats the whole night!!! My great-aunt, who is in her late 80's danced the entire night!!!! It was awesome!!! In every picture people are laughing and dancing and having such a great time. Everyone has told me that they have never been to such a fun wedding, which is the best compliment I could have gotten!! And I personally danced my heart out. My only regret is that it's over. I would live my wedding night over and over again if I could...

Brett, Chris and I cannot thank you enough for the incredibly fun and awesome party that you kept going all night long for us!!! It was such a blast- it was truly the best night of my entire life and you had so much to do with that. Thank you so much for everything. Throughout the entire process you were so wonderful and just so easy to work with. You made it so easy and so much fun to plan the music! We truly cannot thank you enough!!

I swear I am still dancing, Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment was the most amazing DJ. He was so attentive and always on top of all of our requests. Even up until the day of the wedding (because I had procrastinated) Brett was helping me coordinate certain dances to make sure everyone was recognized. His advice about how the evening should run was spot on to our personality and wedding. He read the crowd perfectly and to this day (2 months later) people are still saying that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever been to. Everyone was on the dance floor from flash mob until lights on with the buses almost leaving without some guests! I cannot recommend Cracker Jack Entertainment enough. If you want a DJ, who by the end of our wedding we felt like was a friend, and will keep your guests on the dance floor all night then Cracker Jack Entertainment is the way to go.

Hire Brett! Crackerjack Entertainment was the best decision we made for our wedding. From the first moment we reached out to him, Brett was easy to reach and maintained his professionalism throughout the whole process. We loved him from day one and continue to rave about him and his service months after our wedding. We had a number of meetings, where Brett was prepared, organized and ready to take on all of our ideas and also helped guide us in the right direction. He brought tons of experience to the table and listened to our individual needs. Brett caught on quickly to who we were and what we liked/disliked. At the wedding, Brett kept our guest on the dance floor all night and maintained a flow that fit us perfectly. Throughout the night, we knew we made the best choice in hiring Crackerjack Entertainment. Our guest continue to rave about how awesome our DJ was!! We highly recommend Brett, he's great inside and out.

Brett Heeney of CrackerJack Entertainment was recommended to us by the wedding planners at Granite Links Golf Course in Quincy, MA. From the minute we met him, we knew we had found our DJ!! Brett makes the process so simple. His experience shines through in the meetings you'll have with him. Any concerns or questions or worries you might have about a DJ, are quickly answered and put at ease once you meet with Brett. His attention to detail, his attentiveness to your wedding day vision, and his organization will give you so much confidence in your choice for a DJ. Brett also has a great personality, and sense of humor about him. Although he will make sure everything goes exactly as you want it to, he'll have fun doing it, and you'll make a friend in the process! Brett is a class act!

Hiring Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment as the DJ for our wedding is without a doubt one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning process. Brett is the most professional and organized vendor that we worked with. Leading up to the wedding, he kept us on track with checklists, questionnaires to customize our event, and an interactive website to search for music and record our request list. Whenever we had a question, he was thorough and timely in his responses to our emails, so we always felt like he cared about our upcoming event, no matter how far away it was from the date. His professionalism and responsiveness gave us comfort that he had everything under control and that we had nothing to worry about on the DJ front, which is essential when there are so many other facets of the wedding to worry about. The day of the wedding Brett did a terrific job getting everyone up and dancing early and throughout the night. He kept us clued in as to the order of events, so there were no surprises. He would discretely run song requests by us if he felt that they may be in our "do not play" category. We felt so comfortable with him there with us and all of our guests agreed that he was the perfect DJ. We recommend Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment to anyone looking for a professional DJ who customizes the event to your liking and treats his clients with the utmost respect and courtesy. We give him an A+++!

Let me begin by saying, my husband and I were initially looking at a different DJ service for our wedding. The company we first contacted responded that they were booked, but suggested Crackerjack as a reliable vendor. As it turns out, we were lucky that the original vendor was booked--we could not have been happier with how Brett at Crackerjack handled our wedding! From our very first meeting, my husband and I were impressed with Brett's attention to detail and down-to-earth manner. He asked us some initial questions, and "warned" us about the extensive Crackerjack questionnaire that we'd need to fill out if we chose him as our DJ. He wasn't lying; the questionnaire is long, but it's one of the reasons that Brett is such a great DJ--he is thorough and pays attention! We were able to detail every request and explain its significance, and Brett made sure nothing was missed. The ceremony and reception were everything we hoped for. Not only were the songs exactly in line with our requests, but before the introductions, Brett had a pow-wow with the wedding party to ensure he had the proper pronunciations of everyone's names and the proper order of introduction (this may sound minor, but I think we have all been to weddings where this was clearly NOT done). Brett stuck to the planned schedule during the reception, made all of the announcements as requested, and was professional and energetic. He played all of our "must plays" and kept our guests dancing all evening. He truly was a big part of making the day perfect. Everyone we spoke to raved about what a great job he did. Not a single complaint--outstanding! Thanks, Brett!

This review is long overdue! We got married this past September at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset, Ma and Brett Heeny was our DJ. If you are looking for the best DJ, stop looking and give Brett a call; you will not be disappointed. He is extremely organized and has all the solutions for music from the ceremony, to the introductions and to the reception. He knows the ins and outs of weddings and gives fabulous suggestions. He's solid.

Brett did a fantastic job as the DJ (aka wedding planner) at our daughter's wedding. There was no other DJ we would consider. This is the 3rd wedding (3rd daughter) we hired Brett for. His attention to detail is amazing. He is extremely organized which was a huge relief for us. We didn't have to worry about a thing. He has the timeline down to the minute. Most importantly he had the dance floor full all night. We actually extended his time because the guests were having so much fun. I cannot say enough about the amazing job Brett did for each of our weddings. He made each one special. He went above and beyond to make it a perfect day for all. He is professional and very talented. We highly recommend Brett!

Brett was absolutely amazing!! He was an amazing DJ, and even wedding coordinator the day of the wedding! He truly went above and beyond to make sure every second of the day was planned and would run smoothly. He got shy and reserved family members to get up on the dance floor! What I loved about Brett was that he let his talent and music speak for itself. He wasn't on the microphone making jokes, pushing people to get up and dance, instead he played great music, and really let myself and my fiancé have control over how we wanted to reception to play out. For example, during out meeting with Brett he asked us questions like, should he play request's that our guests had for songs? was there only a piece of a song that we wanted played for our first dance? He was so detail oriented that it gave me such ease the day of the wedding to know that there were going to be no surprises, and that he and I were on the same page about the flow of the reception.
Brett was also great regarding any communication, questions, concerns that I had. He was very down to earth, and easy to talk to, which was extremely important to me. My fiancé and I had little to no experience with regards to weddings so we felt a little lost at the beginning when starting the wedding planning process. No matter how silly the question, Brett answered in such a timely manner, and really made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process. It was as if I was talking to a friend.
Without a doubt, I would recommend Brett to anyone, in a heartbeat! A genuinely great person and a wonderful DJ!

Cannot say enough good things about Brett. We were very impressed with his attention to detail to make sure that the wedding reception was seamless from start to finish. Brett is not just a great DJ, he is a great planner. He prepared a detailed reception itinerary to provide structure to a very chaotic day. Lastly, we would definitely recommend Brett is for folks who are planning weddings from afar. We live in Chicago and got married in Boston. Brett's experience put us at ease during the planning process and the big day. Great guy, great value, and we definitely would recommend Brett for your big day.

Wedding planning is so stressful, it was such a relief to work with someone like Brett. I never had to worry that he had things under control, ever. He is SO thorough about making your day perfect, when I think back to wedding planning it was one of the few bright spots in the midst of some other issues we had to deal with. He even gave us a CD after the wedding with our ceremony, cake cutting, and last dance songs. He keeps EVERYONE on the dance floor!!! We used Brett for the ceremony as well and everyone commented how PERFECT the music was. You barely even noticed that it was a DJ. I can't say enough good things about working with Brett, he will not let you down!

The process of working and planning with Brett Heeney was all it should have been. His questionnaire actually prepared my husband and me for our reception better than any other planning did. In the end, Brett brought two very different cultures together at our event and kept people from all generations and all sides of the family up dancing the whole time! He was also graciously flexible with the timing of each special moment throughout the event and helped keep all important people in the right place at the right time while staying out of everybody's way. It was an absolute pleasure to include him as part of our special day!

Brett is a credit to his profession. His services extend far beyond the music for the reception. We really appreciated his expert technical skills setting up the sound equipment for our daughter's ceremony. Our musicians had to play in a different area due to wet conditions. This situation was a curve ball in terms of setting up the sound system. Brett handled this last minute change and was an intergral part of making the ceremony meaningful for all our guests. Brett does a lot of behind the scenes work that contribute to a seamless day from beginning to end. He kept everyone on schedule for the intros, dances, cake cutting, etc and alerted us when something was going to happen so we would not miss anything. If all this was not enough, we received the first photos of the wedding 2 days after the event. I am not sure where he found the time to take pictures! Brett is professional, efficient, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Crackerjact Entertainment without hesitation.

We had the pleasure of working with Brett Heeney as our wedding DJ. From the beginning of the process we were blown away by how organized and professional he was. Brett shared way more information with us than other DJ's we spoke with, which is why we chose to go with him. He had a detailed list of how the reception was supposed to go and was very reassuring in offering suggestions to details we hadn't even thought of. From assuring us that he would make sure my mom wasn't in the bathroom when my dad and I danced, to suggesting ways to introduce our wedding party, he helped us through the process greatly! When it came time for the actual wedding day, he complied a really nice mix of irish music for our cocktail hour and kept the dance floor ROCKING during the reception! So many people came up to me at the end of the wedding asking for info on our DJ because they were so impressed with the party. I would highly recommend Brett and Crackerjack Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ.

We recently got married in the Cape in September. Brett from Crackerjack was our dj. He was the best dj ever!!!!!!! He was super easy to work with and so professional. He helped make the night go smoothly by always letting us know when he was about to do something or when we were supposed to do something. He had the dance floor completely packed all night and people kept commenting on how good the music was. We told Brett we wanted a big party all night and he helped by giving us just that! I can't say one negative thing about our experience with Brett. People are still telling me how much fun they had at our wedding and they want to hire our dj for their next event!!!! Best dj ever!!!!!!

My husband and I had a lot of concerns when looking for a DJ for our wedding... We did NOT want someone who would show up with a trunk full of tacky props or would give us a cookie-cutter experience (the same as countless other weddings).

As soon as we had our first meet with Brett, we knew we found the right man for the job! He was fantastic throughout the wedding planning - always accommodating as planned changed/evolved. As for the wedding reception itself - the only word we can use to describe Brett/our DJ experience is "flawless"! He was fantastic working with our other vendors, and kept the event moving forward - and the dance floor completely packed all night long!

We would absolutely recommend Brett to anyone looking for a great experience with a DJ for their wedding. Thanks so much, Brett! :)

I was very impressed and pleased with Brett from Crackerjack - in all aspects of the planning, preparation and hosting for my wedding. He was extremely professional, truly thought of everything (which was nice as a bride who did not really know how to run the show) and was great down to every detail. During the reception he was always sure to prepare/remind us for what was coming next without at all being intrusive. He played a great selection tailored to our crowd (a quieter, less "dance party" room). He was recommended to us and I would absolutely do the same to anyone. Fantastic to work with.

Brett at Crackerjack was the absolute best DJ I could have asked for. From the first meeting all the way through until Wedding Day he was beyond thorough and detail oriented. He was so organized that I honestly consider him to have been my the day of wedding planner. I directed other vendors to sync with him because I knew with 100% confidence that he had it under control. Not only did he pay attention to every detail, he provided us with music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and of course the reception that was unparalleled. He knew how to keep people on the floor and how to incorporate the many decades of ages of our guests. I didn't even have to provide a do not play list, after giving him a general direction, there was no need because I knew he saw my vision and that none of that nonsense would be an option. My guests loved him, he was extremely likable and professional. I couldn't imagine not picking Brett for our wedding day- if he is unavailable for your wedding day, change the date because he's that good. Thanks a million, Brett!

We could not have been more pleased with our DJ services for our wedding. Brett was extremely responsive, and helped us plan a perfect reception that was exciting, fun, and flawless! My partner and I had lots of ideas on how to incorporate many of our family members into the wedding, and Brett helped us to figure out how to make our ideas into reality. We also love music, and we were able to pick out all the songs we wanted for our cocktail hour and reception. Even when he didn't originally have the song, Brett found all the songs we chose and created a brilliant playlist with our selected music. Everyone had an incredible time, especially us!

As a bride planning her wedding herself, I knew that beyond the dress and the ring, the DJ was one of the most important things to make sure my wedding went perfectly! I searched high and low and was LUCKY enough to have find Brett Heeney and Crackerjack Entertainment.

Brett was not only a pleasant, funny, and just general "overall nice" guy, he was also extremely professional, punctual with meetings and e-mail responses, and has the BEST website around. I liked him immediately. He understood exactly what I wanted, helped me form a plan, and followed my requests to the letter.

Since my wedding was outside, Brett not only worked with my reception, but also did the sound for the ceremony. All of his equipment worked perfectly, and I was so relieved that everyone could hear and enjoy the service. There was even an few minutes of shyness with my ring bearer freezing half way down the isle. Brett handled this unexpected situation with perfect timing. The music was set up so well that it remained seamless even though he had to re-loop. Pure genius.

All of my guests LOVED him. People danced the WHOLE night and the wedding flowed smoothly with Brett's expert MC-ing skills. If you want a fun wedding, a full dance floor, and a DJ that seems to be able to handle anything, you can't go wrong with Crackerjack Entertainment. He was worth every penny and I would 100% recommend him to anyone!

My husband and I for sure thought we wanted a band at our reception. However, when we started doing some research and realized the cost of bands averaged around $6,000, we decided we should hire a DJ instead. I was so nervous that we were going to end up with a cheesy DJ that would attempt corny wedding jokes all night long. A friend of mine referred me to Brett at Crackerjack Entertainment and cheesy DJ he is not!!! Brett was so amazing to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. Every time we met with him he was extremely prepared and professional. There were things that we didn't even think of (like what song do we want played during our wedding party introduction or garter toss??), but Brett had everything laid out in an easy to follow process. I was extremely stressed during the last few months of planning, but every time we met with Brett, I instantly felt a feeling of calm come over me, I knew we were in good hands.

The night of our wedding Brett was amazing. Every playlist from cocktail hour, to dinner, to dancing was perfect. He truly listened and took note of all of our requests, especially our "do not play list". All of our guests were on the dance floor as soon as dinner was over (they didn't even wait for dessert). His music catered to all ages and the dance floor was packed all night. He truly used his music to get guests on the dance floor. I asked him at 10:30 if he could stay for an extra hour, which turned out to be an extra hour and half and he was more than happy to do it. His DJ skills were so good that no one wanted to leave. We finally had to tell him to just end the music or else the party would have lasted until the sun came up!

Brett is professional, talented and really fun to work with. We will use him for any event we need a DJ in the future and we will forever highly recommend him to all future brides and grooms.

Thank you Brett for helping to make a wedding truly a night we will never forget : )

Brett came highly recommended to us and upon our first meeting we knew he would be perfect for our wedding! His exceptional organization, knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail make him a phenomonal DJ. Being two people who know very little about music we wanted to make sure we had a DJ that would be able to help us create a fun atmosphere for our wedding and Brett did just that. While he has an expansive online library we chose not to create a "play list" and left it completely in his hands knowing what a wonderful job he would do reading the crowd and playing appropriate music. Everyone continues to tell us what a fun wedding we had and we attribute that to Brett and the music he played. Along with his lists of suggested songs for certain parts of the reception Brett was fantastic at making recommendations when we struggled to make decisions. Always being there to answer questions and offer suggestions made this part of wedding planning stress free. We could not have been happier with Brett and the services he provided at our wedding. We highly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment at an event.

Many brides dream about their dress, the flowers, the decor, their hair, etc. when planning their big day. I dreamed about good food and an amazing dance party. Brett more than delivered the second half of my dream. He had my guests on their feet from beginning to end and I heard many compliments raving about his music, his demeanor, and his professionalism. From our first meeting til our final song he was straighforward, easy going, organized and helpful. He helped everything go off without a hitch and I couldn't be happier about his work. I highly reccommend letting him read the crowd and play what your guests are responding to. We had young and old dancing the night away! Hire him, you will not be disappointed!!!

We worked with Brett Heeney from Crackerjack Entertainment for our wedding this past summer. He was very professional and took the lead on every aspect of the music planning, reminding me when certain decisions were due and guiding us in areas where we were unsure (while also not being pushy). The day of the wedding he was super buttoned up and helped keep everyone on task and on time. We had an unexpected power outage right when we were about to start the dancing. After 30 minutes fortunately the power came back on. Brett stayed for additional 45 minutes to make up for the outage at no cost or complaint. He was really just focused on everyone having the best time they could and everyone did! The dance floor was packed all night!!! People of all age groups up and dancing. It was such an amazing time and many of my friends specifically commented on the music. Thanks Brett!!!

Brett defines professionalism and party! He is classy, talented, thoughtful, considerate and great to work with. Brett takes his work very seriously but puts on a fabulous piece of art for weddings as he did for ours. He kept the dance floor moving and people dancing the night away. He made the long drive and dedication to our venue in York, ME and we never doubted/worried about anything at all on his end. Would highly recommend to others!

Brett was awesome and we 150% would recommend him to anyone! I really hope I get to go to another Crackerjack wedding!

No question about it - picking a DJ was something we found very challenging. You can taste your cake, see your venue, try on your dress - but you can't always hear the DJ first hand. We interviewed 3 different DJs and without a doubt Brett was the most impressive. He gave us a discount for our Sunday wedding – and his prices were very competitive with the other DJs we met with. I was super organized (binders, files you name it) and was so impressed after our meeting by his organization and preparedness - we booked immediately. No one else had an online database we could use - or a suggested timeline for the reception. Most people only do this once so it was important to us the flow was right - we actually ended up changing our venues 'suggested timeline' to the one Brett provided as part of your questionnaire. His emceeing skills are exceptional and he was able to direct the flow of the night without a problem. We gave him some ‘must plays’, threw in songs we know we like – then gave him free reign of the sound. He definitely can read the crowd – I don’t think we stopped dancing. He was very professional throughout the entire planning process and caters to any question or last minute request almost instantly. We even changed one of the entrance songs at 11:30pm the night before the wedding and Brett came through! You will not regret hiring Crackerjack!!

I can't say enough great things about Brett (Crackerjack Entertainment). From the very first phone call all the way leading up to the wedding and of course the wedding day, Brett was fantastic. We realized that finding the perfect DJ for our wedding was a challenging job. For me it was the most important vendor for our big day. We struck gold with Brett. He was always quick to respond to my questions and gave us great advice along the way for how to organize the music we had selected. As you know things don't always go as planned. We definitely had some issues with other vendors that day but Brett was our one vendor that saved the day. He went above and beyond the call of duty for a DJ. He fixed the lighting under our tent. Tried to fix the heater that wasn't working and somehow mannaged to become my wedding coordinator for that day. All while getting the music going and having our guests dance up a storm. To put it simply he saved the day! My wedding was perfect because of Brett. You will not be dissapointed! He was by far the best money we spent for our wedding!

This review is long overdue! Brett is absolutely awesome! From the very first time my husband and I met Brett, we were blown away by how organized and prepared he was. He was very responsive to emails and on top of everything! Songs can be picked online leading up to the day - I actually did not submit my song list until the day before the wedding and even though I'm such a procrastinator - Brett let me know right away that he got my list and that he was ready. He made a point to talk to my husband and I before the ceremony and reception to check in on us! I even asked him that day to make a special announcement for my cousin who is in the Navy and was able to come to the wedding and he did great!

Brett kept the dance floor packed all night long, which is exactly what we asked for! Still a little more than three months since our wedding has passed and people still tell us how awesome he was! I would recommend Brett to anyone!

Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment is a phenomenal DJ, a professional and dependable businessperson, and a brings a great sense of humor and compassion to his work! We couldn't have been more happy with our choice to have Brett DJ our wedding!

Brett was the very first vendor that my husband and I met with when we started our wedding planning process. He was so incredibly thorough and professional, going over his process and how he works with a binder full of example wedding timelines, suggestions for the day-of schedule, and plenty of music recommendations. We were completely comfortable with Brett during that first meeting and had no doubt that he was the DJ for us - we booked him immediately! We found ourselves looking to Brett for advice throughout the entire planning process in organizing our day and were constantly impressed and pleased with how willing to help and invested Brett was in our wedding day. He even utilized his personal contacts to help me find up-lighting the week of the wedding!

It was incredibly important for us to have a DJ that would keep everyone dancing throughout the night and Brett sure did deliver - he had everyone dancing from our youngest to oldest guests. Many of our guests commented afterward that he played a great mix of music that never alienated any one age group from the dance floor. We had worries about managing request lists and took advantage of Brett's suggested "must play" and "do not play" lists. Throughout the entire wedding, Brett did a terrific job of using his best judgement in gauging the crowd and making in-the-moment decisions.

All in all, we can't say enough about how absolutely pleased we were with Brett. We can only hope that our friends and family choose to include him in their future events so we can enjoy seeing him again!

Could not have asked for a better DJ. Brett Heeney did everything we could have hoped for and more. We had seen him dj at another wedding and were so impressed by his work. He made sure to work with us to plan a night that all of our guests would enjoy. Brett did a great job of keeping the party going; the dance floor never emptied. He is the best dj from any wedding I have ever been to. Brett worked with us during the event to make sure everything was going smoothly. Also was the first DJ I've heard in a long time that didn't mess up on a single announcement or introduction which we greatly appreciated. Brett did an amazing job and anyone would be lucky to have him as the DJ for their wedding.

We knew finding the right DJ for our wedding was going to be one of the most important decisions we made during the wedding planning process. My husband and I both love to dance, so a good DJ was very crucial. A friend recommended Crackerjack Entertainment and made me promise to contact Brett because she knew he would live up to all our expectations. And she was right! Brett was professional and organized, he was always quick to respond to my emails, he was honest and made great recommendations, and he made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Brett did the music for our entire wedding - from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the reception. He played a crucial role in our wedding day and made sure everything ran smoothly. And most importantly, he kept our guests (of all ages) on the dance floor all night. We had so much fun dancing with our family and friends. Brett is worth all five stars. I'd recommended him in a heart beat!

We knew when we met Brett, he was the DJ for us. He impressed us with his professionalism and we knew immediately, he could provide the music we wanted at our celebration. And he surpassed everything we expected. We told him when we first met that we wanted our wedding celebration to be a party and he helped make that happen. Brett kept the dance floor at full swing from the minute dinner ended to the very last dance. We asked that he keep the slow dances to a minimum which he did but provided just enough to give the older guests opportunities to dance too. Our guests loved him and we did too.

We met with 3 DJ's before Brett, and am so happy we kept pushing to meet more. The others just weren't feeling right. From the instant we met Brett things just felt right. He didn't need to sell to us. His authentic and accommodating personality won us over.

And, it was Brett's accommodating personality that shined as we discussed our vision of a non-tradition music line-up for our wedding, which involved an alternative cocktail hour, a high energy/frequently rotating dance section, a wind-down hour at the end of the evening and virtually no DJ announcements. He expressed excitement over the opportunity, where the other DJ's we met expressed hesitation and even encouraged adopting a more cookie cutter approach to music.

When it came to the planning and execution, Brett was top notch too. Brett doesn't miss a beat when it comes preparation for the big day - with a very thorough questionnaire process, personal meetings and an amazing online playlist system, we knew we were in good hands. And honestly, as I discussed the online system to friends that were also in the process of getting married and using other DJ's, they were blown away. Day of, Brett did not disappoint. Even with some electrical issues, his performance was on point and he got our dance floor pumping - even on one of the most humid days of the year!

Friends and family loved him too, which to me is always the best validation. Hands down, you if you're looking for a DJ that is professional, organized, upbeat, pleasant and who will cater to your needs - Brett is your guy!

We could not have had a better experience working with Brett. From the beginning stages, he was unbelievably organized and on top of all the details of our wedding. The wedding survey you fill out is comprehensive and covers even details you didn't think of. Having the schedule he provided as part of our day made it flow smoothly with not one hitch.

Brett easily worked with our other vendors and was incredibly flexible when working with their schedules as well. His MC skills were fantastic and professional, he got everyone's attention easily and was clear and comical. He always knew where people were when doing toasts and made sure the critical people were in the room to witness whenever any event was taking place.

We received an insane amount of compliments on the music selection, and we really didn't have a whole lot of direction to go on. The dance floor was packed the entire night and there was something for everyone to dance to and nothing that cleared the floor.

Brett made our day the huge success it was, I couldn't recommend him more!

Crackerjack Entertainment did our daughter's Kate wedding on 9/10/11 at the Exchange Center on the waterfront in Boston.

Our daughter Kate and and her husband Josh just got home from their honeymoon and I asked for your contact information. My wife Joanne and I want to thank you personally for doing such a professional job at Kate and Josh's wedding. Everything was terrific, you were incredibly well organized throughout the entire process and managed your end of the affair extremely well. The music selection which had something for everybody absolutely hit the mark and the corner lighting really added to the ambiance. Finally, the volume was perfect the entire night! I don’t think things could have gone any better really. We’ve been to weddings in the past where the music is geared to a very young crowd. Everyone at Kate and Josh's wedding had a great time. More people commented on how much they liked the music selection and well organized it all was.

Kate and Josh also told us how great you were to work with and Michele the Manager of the Exchange commented on that as well by saying, you were very professional and great to work with.

So, thank you again for helping to make our daughter’s wedding so memorably. We could not have been more pleased. My wife and I, from a slightly different generational perspective, would be very happy to provide references at any time.

Thank you.

After meeting with several DJ’s and not being impressed with a single one of them, it was a breath of fresh air when we met Brett. You could tell from the very beginning that he was extremely organized, professional, and loved what he did for a living.

One thing that we were really nervous about was hiring a DJ who wouldn’t listen to our wishes at all. It seemed as though everyone we met with we got a vibe that our wedding would be full of cheesy music and a DJ who talked too much. I didn’t once get that feeling with Brett. He truly listened to what we wanted and agreed with everything we said and asked for. He made us feel extremely comfortable from the moment we met him all the way to the end of our reception. Brett is truly one of the most organized people I have ever met, and it really shows through his work. We loved that he had a book for each wedding that had every single detail of the night. It really made me feel comfortable that Brett was on top of his game and he really cared about each client. We also loved the online music database that Brett has. It was a blast going through music and making our “must play” “would like to play” and “do not play” lists. And, he listens to what you want and every song that was on our “must play” was played at our wedding, and he didn’t play one song on our “do not play” list, or anything along the lines of it.

The real reason we absolutely loved Brett was that our dance floor was literally packed from the moment he opened up the dance floor to the very last song. When I say packed, I mean you could barely move! He did an amazing job of playing different genres for our guests and keeping people up and dancing all night. It was an awesome sight for my husband and me to see so many people have a blast at our wedding. Brett hands down made our wedding reception and we would hire him again in a heart beat!

I used crackerjack entertainment after attending my cousins wedding where they dj'd and they did not disappoint. From the very beginning we had complete control of the music, with the ability to pick every song we wanted played and did not want played. Brett allowed us to customize our intros for the wedding party and even some songs that we wanted to cut or mix into other songs. He was right on point with all the announcements we wanted and timing of each event of the night. He was so good at reading the crowd and knowing which song to play next. Very professional and super flexible. Everything was done in such a organized manner that it was one part of the planning process that seemed stress free. I would highly recommend this company to brides out there!

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with the DJ from Crackerjack Entertainment for our wedding! Brett was extremely professional, thorough, conscientious, and easy to work with. From the day we booked with him, we received access to our "my event" page on the Crackerjack website where we could select songs that we wanted played. This made my husband VERY happy since he was so involved with the music for our wedding. Brett responded promptly to every email that was sent and made sure to answer any questions we may have had. Even though Brett had never played at our venue before, he made an effort to contact them ahead of time to make sure that everything would run smoothly that night. I also loved the wedding questionnaire that we filled out prior to the event -- it included EVERY detail that you would possibly need to cover and allowed us to personalize our special day to make it exactly how we wanted it to be. Our guests had a blast and all raved about how great the music was! The dance floor was never empty once the dance music started and we didn't want the night to end. As many of you "brides to be" know, planning your wedding can be extremely stressful and overwhelming. However, if you have hired vendors that you feel confident about, it makes the process so much more enjoyable! I assure you Crackerjack Entertainment will provide you with that confidence and you will not need to worry about a thing! It will be fabulous!

Brett Heeney was very professional and organized. He was amazing through the planning process, as well as during the entire wedding night. He quickly responded to emails and any questions we had, he was sending friendly reminders and he was always on top of things. The questionnaire he has for each couple prior to the wedding was very helpful and allowed us to easily express what we really want for our wedding. Another great service which Crackerjack provides is “My even” section on their website. There, you can go and search for millions of songs and get great ideas on what music you want to hear during the wedding.
All of our guests had a blast at our wedding and everyone was up and dancing the whole night while Brett was playing most of the songs which we provided in the request list. Our guests still share with us how much fun they had and how this was the best wedding they have been to :)
I highly recommend Brett as a DJ for your wedding or any other event!!! He is AMAZING!!!

Thanks again, Brett for making our wedding so fun and unforgettable!!!

We attended a friends wedding that Brett was the dj for and approached him that night about being our wedding dj for the following summer. All we wanted for our wedding reception was a big dance party. Brett advised on how to organize all the formalities (first dance, cake cutting, etc.) to allow the rest of our night to be non-stop dancing. He was present, professional and organized but wasn't constantly speaking into the mic making random announcements. He helped make things run smoothly and did it so well it was like he wasn't even there. It was nice having that kind of trust in your dj to keep the show going. It's been over a year since our wedding and people are still telling us it's one of the most fun weddings they've been to. Brett and his music was a big part of what made this the case.

Brett is the absolute best!
He was the dj at my (now) husband's brothers wedding and he did an amazing job!
So he was the obvious (and only) choice when we started to plan our wedding.

We can not say enough about Brett's professionalism, organization and attention to detail. He was extremely easy to work with through the entire planning stage, answering all emails and phone calls in a timely manner. His music database is extensive and anything that he may have been missing he provided for us. He also offered great suggestions on the flow of the reception.

On our wedding day, Brett worked hard to make us and our parents happy. He was the perfect emcee and the music was great!! The dance floor was packed all night and we got numerous compliments on the music from people of all ages.

What a memorable day it was - thanks in large part to Brett! I would happily reccomend him to anyone!

He was professional, extremely knowledgable about what he does, and very interested in my daughter and her fiance's musical suggestions. He was so organized that I knew then and there that he would take charge at the reception and see to it that things ran smoothly--and I was right because they did.

Brett made my wedding great! My guests never left the dance floor. He is very organized, does all his homework so that he is able to provide the best entertainment during the wedding without much direction from the bride or groom. He works well with other vendors. I am still getting rave reviews about my wedding 2 months later! I thank Brett for that! He has an extensive music library, knows what and when to play to keep the feet moving. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Brett, would love to repeat my wedding reception because too much fun was had by all! to sum it up: He is phenomenal!!!

Brett was by far the best wedding DJ I have ever encountered! My husband and I "borrowed" him from a friend and my cousin liked him so much that she hired him as well!

Our wedding was a huge dance party, with people anxiously awaiting to be invited up to the dance floor and keeping it going until that dreaded last song! Everything went so smoothly and there wasn't a detail that Brett missed. He even went so far as to come check with me when someone requested a song that may have been questionable!

Brett was great to work with and I have recommended him to every engaged person I know!

Brett and Crackerjack Entertainment were awesome!! Brett is extremely organized, sends reminders for busy brides but never pushy, and he is always friendly and upbeat. He is also extremely professional and willing to be flexible. We changed our wedding venue and Brett was more than willing to discuss with us our options and conintued to DJ our wedding at a Venue hours from our first. Most importantly however, the music was FANTASTIC!! He kept our guest and us dancing all night with all of our favorites and not once did he say or announce anything cheesy like some DJ's. He directed our guests attention to where it needed to be and then let us dance the night away! Could not say enough about Crackerjack Entertainment.

Brett Heeney was very professional and organized. He always responded to phone calls and emails in a timely fashion. He has a lot of paperwork that he keeps and asks each bride and groom to fill out which was very helpful in allowing him to really know what you want. All of our guests had a blast at our wedding and everyone was up dancing most of the night. Our guests still tell us how much fun they had at our wedding. Choose Crackerjack as your DJ and you wont be sorry!!

As the mother of the bride/wedding coordinator I was thrilled to work with someone as detailed as Brett Heney. It was clear from the start his approach to our wedding was to tailor everything to our vision and providing guidance along the way in ways to ensure things went smoothly. It was a lot of fun to be able to select music that we wanted to play and know the guest we wanted to enjoy it would be on the dance floor. Brett was wonderful in guiding us through the time line of events. Our goal was for everyone to enjoy themselves and he worked seamlessly with our photographer and cater to ensure a smooth flow. Our dance floor was filled all night thanks to Brett.

Brett was excellent!!! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole time. He knew exactly what to play and when and did not talk much at all which was our biggest concern about wedding DJs. I have to say of all of the wedding vendors we had, he was by far the most organized and super responsive. The week before our wedding my husband kept finding new songs he wanted Brett to play and we probably emailed Brett several times that week with changes. Brett rolled with the punches and made sure to play all of those late adds as well. Additionally, we had our reception in Boston Public Library. He had never DJed there before, but he was prepared and in touch with the library contact and I knew I had nothing to worry about come our wedding day. Brett did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone!!!

Our wedding was a blast all because of Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment! Along with being an extraordinarily talented DJ, Brett is super organized and really pays attention to your wants/needs, likes/dislikes. A few weeks prior to the big day, he asks that you fill out a packet with a bunch of questions about the reception... he really doesn't miss a single detail. Brett is also completely reliable, flexible with any last minute changes and always quick to respond to any questions/concerns. As such an experienced professional, Brett has an incredible online music library which makes creating your wedding day playlist quick and simple. At the reception, the music that was played was absolutely perfect and kept everyone dancing all night! Overall, the DJ service provided by Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment was absolutely outstanding and choosing Brett as our wedding DJ was one of the best decisions we could've made!

I was referred to Crackerjack Entertainment by a friend who used to be a Wedding Coordinator. She said that Brett Heeney was the BEST DJ she has worked with. Knowing that she had worked with countless DJs, I immediately contacted Brett. He certainly lived up to my very high expectations! Brett has a very expensive online song library, where we were able to create playlists. He was always available and quick to respond to our questions. Months leading up to our BIG day, he stayed in touch with checklists and reminders. We felt like we were his number one priority! The day of, Brett kept the energy level up, which exactly where we wanted it. After all the "formalities," our guests were storming the dance floor!!!! 7 months since the wedding, we still have friends telling us how fantastic he was!!!
Thanks for the unforgetable memories, Brett!!!

Of all the vendors at our wedding, I can easily say Brett was the absolute best.

We found Brett through a friend's referral. We actually went to their wedding and all I remembered was how great the music was and how packed the dance floor was all night - I didn't even remember what Brett looked like or sounded like, which to me was perfect. I have been to some weddings where the DJ thinks they are the star with a microphone and it makes me so mad!

Brett is very organized, meticulous and thorough. Sometimes the forms and questionnaires could seem overwhelming, but I was comforted knowing that nothing would fall through the cracks. He asked every question and had every detail documented so I didn't need to think about it anymore. By the time the wedding day came, I figured if there was any detail we hadn't covered, I trusted him enough to make the decision for himself.

And when the wedding day came, he fully lived up to every expectation. Our reception was the biggest dance party! I loved knowing he had our Must Play/Maybe Play/Do Not Play list, but I also asked him to use his judgment and play to the crowd as he felt appropriate (reading the crowd is definitely one of his biggest talents).

One of my friends was so impressed with him, she actually booked him for her wedding that night!

I really can't say enough good things about him. Overall for me the best service that Brett provided was taking a little bit of stress out of the wedding planning and wedding day itself, which is truly priceless.

Brett provided DJ services for my daughter's wedding at White Cliffs Country Club in Plymouth last June. Brett's preparation for this very important day in our lives was impressive. We met with him in person on two occasions and he patiently answered all of our questions and put us immediately at ease. We knew within a few minutes that we had chosen the right person for this job.
A DJ can make or break a wedding. We have all been to weddings where the music selection was poor, the timing was off and/or the DJ was so full of himself he made himself the star of the show.
Brett followed my daughter's play list and used excellent judgment, based on his discussions with my daughter, whether to take requests. (and quite frankly dealing with my daughter's list of "can play", "maybe play" and "cannot play" was a task in itself). The man has the patience of a saint.
We were a bit concerned about the logistics of the music for the ceremony to the reception because the wedding ceremony was outdoors and the reception was indoors. But Brett made the transition between the two seamlessly. It was all just perfect.
At the appropriate times Brett made announcements for the first dance, blessing, dinner, etc. and otherwise just played the music and kept in the background.
He told us that he was available to do more showmanship if that is what we wanted but we did not want that. We wanted music only all the time and to keep the guests up and dancing and that is what he did. The pace of slow to fast dances was perfect and gave folks a chance to catch their breath.
All in all Brett's services made my daughter's wedding a delightful, romantic and memorable event. And if we ever need a DJ again, Brett would be our only choice.

Our wedding day was absolutely PERFECT. We owe a big part of that to Brett. We had two meetings with him prior to the day, and he took copious notes. He was meticulous with small but important details, from how to pronounce my bridesmaids' names to when exactly to hit the music as we had our first kiss.
Brett provided us with excellent suggestions and ideas that were very helpful. You know that bride-to-be feeling of how-in-the-world-am-I-going-to-pull-this-all-off? Brett totally gets it!! He helped me to focus on the fun, and I put everything in his very capable hands.
We recommend Crackerjack Entertainment, and particularly Brett Heeney, to anyone who is getting married. We only hope he is still around for our tenth anniversary party!

I highly recommend Brett Heeney from Crackerjack Entertainment!
I heard about Brett from a friend who hired him as her DJ several years ago. Separately a few friends told me that the DJ (Brett) at that friend's wedding was the best they had ever seen at a wedding.
Brett was very professional, helpful, had great questions and ideas, and was extremely thorough in his preparation for our wedding.
A few things that stood out to my husband and I about Brett and his services: (1) the music he played was perfect, (2) we received so many compliments about the music from our friends [this is huge; you want your guests be be happy and have fun and dance], (3) he did a great job of knowing when to fade out our first dance song so it didn't go on too long [we picked a very long song], (4) he nailed the family introductions - did a a great job announcing people like we had asked him too, and (5) this really stood out to me... I asked Brett to play a certain song when my sister and I were on the dance floor together... she's not a dancer and I knew she wouldn't be out there much... he kept an eye out for her all night and there was one time when we were next to each other on the floor - and he played "our song". I was so impressed that he did this and my sister was thrilled at the surprise.
What more can I say? Can you tell that I think Brett is a great DJ and I highly recommend him? :)
Honestly - great guy, great DJ, did a wonderful job.

As everyone knows, there is so much to do when planning a wedding. Hiring Brett as your DJ is the easiest decision you will ever make. From our intial phone call, to first in-person meeting, I immediately felt confident that Brett was the one for us. He is very professional, personable and knows the front to back of everything wedding and really helped with any questions I had about the format of the night. The dance floor was packed and guests were quick to comment on how great the music was. I am in the catering industry and have seen a million DJs, some good, some bad, and some terrible. I can say without reservation that Brett is one of the best - he is an incredible DJ and an actual good guy! He has a great ability to read the crowd and really keeps things moving. I highly recommend Brett and Crackerjack Entertainment - you will not be disappointed!

We had met with several DJs prior to meeting w/ Brett. He impressed us with his level of professionalism and enthusiasm for his job. He was also highly organized which was a quality that was very important to us.

Brett was easy to get in touch with as he would always respond to our questions promptly via email or telephone within 24-48 hrs (often less than 24 hrs). We also had a question about playing music outside during our cocktail hour. Brett worked closely with the Reception Site to make sure he would be able to run speakers to the outside patio. He was able to work this out with the site (We didn't have to do anything) and he delivered as promised.

Brett made sure he could pronounce all the names of our wedding party and did an excellent job as MC. He kept the dance floor full the entire night. We were able to give him a sense of the songs we liked by selecting some "must haves" on his online database. He did a great job of selecting the rest. He also would mix into songs when appropriate.

Brett did such a good job at our wedding, one of the Bridesmaids booked him for her wedding reception. At her wedding, Brett recognized us and took a few minutes to say hello and catch up since our own reception. It was impressive that he remembered us and also goes to show that he truly values his clients.

We highly recommend Brett as your wedding DJ.

When you want your reception to be perfect, details matter. And there was nobody (other than my wife) more on top of the details at our wedding than Brett Heeney and Crackerjack Entertainment. From the first meeting we had with Brett, we knew he was our guy. He asked questions we didn't know to ask and had a system and plan for everything. Not only did he do the fundamental stuff (get everyone's name right, in the right order, play the right music, etc.), he made the night fun and kept the party going without ever making the night about himself. He was the perfect guy for the job, and we highly recommend him and his company.

I told my then fiance that I wanted to hire my sister's DJ and he said "I don't really remember what he looks like." That sold me right there. I wanted a DJ to play great music and get everyone dancing, but to not overpower the event. He was very professional and respected all of my wishes (i.e. not letting people request songs and not letting me take the mic!). Brett was amazing!

He was fun to work with and definitely knew his stuff, he worked with us through every little detail of our wedding to make it exactly the party we wanted. He mixed all the fun current music with the older standards and kept our dance floor going to the very end of the night. We were incredibly happy with the whole Crackerjack Experience and would use them again in an instant, and have already recommended them to friends.

Brett of Crackerjack Entertainment was fabulous! As Kevin and I were saying our "I dos", a crack of lightening struck and blew out the power at our venue. The venue did not have a back-up generator, so Brett went out and bought one! He truly saved our reception! As the hall became dark, Brett kept on spinning the tunes and our guests had a blast dancing in the dark by candlelight. Everyone says it was a wedding they will always remember and they always say, "That DJ of yours was one in a million!"

Crackerjack was highly recommended to me by a few friends that either had family members use them for their DJ or had been to weddings that Crackerjack was the DJ. When I called Bret to set up a meeting with him at Crackerjack I instantly knew that he was going to be my DJ. He is so professional.....he totally listened to everything I said and gave me great suggestions where I needed them. He knows the business in and out and truly caters to the Bride and Groom and what they want. My wedding was a BLAST and people started dancing before dinner even began and never stopped until the end. I got so many compliments on my DJ (Crackerjack Entertainment) and actually at the end of my wedding two different people went over to tell the DJ what a great job he did and how much fun the wedding was! Honestly, I was SO Happy with Crackerjack Entertainment and would highly recommend them to ANYONE!!!

I did a lot of research on vendors and I was a very budget conscious bride. Music was one of the more important things to me because I wanted to make sure people had a good time. When I first met with Brett he blew me away with his professionalism and his likability. After our meeting I was confident that he would do a fabulous job and at my actual wedding, he exceeded my expectations. People danced the whole night away and since then I've had multiple friends who have used his services and still, all rave reviews. If you book Brett he will not disappoint.

He doesn't to embarrass guests or the bride/groom during the wedding and is 100% professional from the planning stages right up to the event. He is so organized and is terrific about responding to emails and questions. I really liked the online catalog on his website with thousands of songs to help create your own playlist. He also has a list of the 200 most popular songs to make it very easy to create your must play, play if possible and don't play lists! Brett read the crowd so that the dance floor was always full, worked closely with us during the reception to stay on schedule and pronounced the names of everyone in our wedding party perfectly! He was never pushy and wonderful to work with! I can't say enough about Crackerjack Entertainment! Look no further!

Brett did an unbelievable job at our wedding. We got married in May 2004 and our friends and family still talk about how much fun they had at our wedding. Would love to do it all over again with Crackerjack Entertainment. He truly was amazing. He catered to the bride and groom just like you thought and even more. Since our wedding he has dj'd many of our friends plus a family event or ours. We highly recommend him. He treated us like we were the only bride and groom that he was working with at the time. Brett is a very genuine person and will help make your day the most wonderful day of your life. We feel that a dj makes or breaks the wedding and by no means did he break our wedding. You feel like he is a part of your family. So comfortable to talk with and makes all your wedding planning a breeze. Hands down, we highly recommend Brett Heeney of Crackerjack Entertainment.

Brett was our DJ for our outdoor wedding and reception and was absolutely great! From the start we liked his personality; funny, warm, professional, courteous, and responsible. The guidance we got from Crackerjack Entertainment made the reception planning much easier (we had little idea what we were doing until we went through the online form) and devising a playlist using their online system was easy. There were periodic check-ins and step-by-step instructions. Brett was flexible and willing to accommodate any of our wishes. For example, when the music we requested for our processional wasn't recording properly from a music file, he persisted in trying various ways to make it happen. We received an email at 3a.m. that he was finally able to troubleshoot it. Additionally, during our reception, we strayed from our planned schedule and Brett was able to easily adapt and change plans.
Honestly, Brett made things so much easier for us...I would highly recommend his services!!

Absolutely without a doubt the best DJ ever!!

We could not have asked for a more accommodating, helpful, organized, genuine and fun DJ!!

From the moment my husband and I met DJ Brett we knew without a doubt that we wanted him to DJ our wedding. He was realistic and energetic when we met him, had outstanding references, was absolutely the most organized DJ we met with and he had great suggestions.

As soon as he told us about his services and online music database where we could help to select a playlist that was so detailed that it included options for songs such as “must play” or “do not play under any circumstances’ to even “play if times allows”. It was awesome!

We met with Brett a few times prior to our wedding and each time we had more ideas to think about and more fun. Brett was so understanding and helpful when I was having a problem picking out the perfect song to dance to with my Dad and even though I only told Brett the song about a week before the wedding he was able to accommodate my choice. His attention to detail and follow-up prior to our wedding was impeccable. I would even say it was perfect.

I know I was stressed planning a wedding but I was not once worried about the music selection and our choice of DJ because of Brett’s outstanding service. I honestly felt Brett was a guest at our wedding. I was excited to see him on our wedding day! He was the perfect professional at our wedding. He was dressed according to the venue, he made sure to check in with us but when he did come over to us he was more like a friend visiting than a vendor. Brett took the time to get to know and introduce himself to everyone that would be speaking or introduced at our reception and took the time to make sure he knew the pronunciation of their names.

I laugh because my grandmother who wasn’t supposed to be introduced with the bridal party somehow ended up in the introduction line (rather than being announced from her table) and Brett realized it before I even did and made sure to come find me and let me know and get the pronunciation of her name correct. It’s this kind of attention to detail and thought that I could rave about for hours.

We’ve had multiple friends and family comment to us that the music was perfect at the wedding! All I ever wanted from my wedding was for my guests to have fun and dance the night away and that they did! Guests of all ages were up dancing all night!

Let’s see..what else can I say? Brett worked well with all of our vendors including the photographer and the coordinator at the reception site. I really think Brett had a lot to do with the flow our wedding day. I could not be happier with his services!

I found Crackerjack Entertainment to be extremely organized, thorough, professional, knowledgeable and not to mention, a complete pleasure to deal with. No over powering egos who want to be THE entertainment here, as I have seen with other vendors. They work with you to craft the experience you want.

They have a fantastic website where you can save your profile with play and do not play lists. The music selection is extensive and they executed exactly as discussed during our event. I would recommend them to any one and use them again myself.

Brett was recommended to us by another DJ, which I think says a lot. We planned our wedding reception within a very short amount of time, and despite the time constraints, Brett worked closely with us and was well prepared for the big day. He kept our guest dancing all night long while staying out of the spotlight, which we really appreciated. He was very conscientious and great to work with.

Our wedding was tons of fun! And a big part that led to that was the great DJ and great music played. The DJ did an excellent job with introductions and he was very very professional and accomodating. I would most definitely recommend him!

Brett made us feel immediately comfortable with his organization and experience. He anticipated our needs before we knew we had them and was extremely flexible with our every whim. He got to know our unique situation and personalities and delivered some great music the day of our wedding. We were very lucky o have him. One thing that I thinks makes Brett so special and better than many other DJs is his organization. From Day 1 he met with us with detailed info on what to expect, what we needed to do, and written time lines. This was extremely helpful, particularly on the Big Day. There are some vendors who did not deliver what they said they would. Brett was top notch and delivered everything and more than expected!

We were very happy with our choice to go with Brett from Crackerjack Entertainment! He met with us several times, communicated through email and made sure all of our requests were met. On the day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about anything relating to music or the flow of events thanks to Brett!

My wife and I chose Brett Heeney as our DJ after seeing him at a friend's wedding a few years earlier, and we could not have been happier by our decision. We were looking for a DJ who remained more or less in the background, and didn't demand the spotlight by talking too much, joining in on the festivities, or any other attention-getting antics. Brett respected what we did (and more importantly, did NOT) want played during the reception. But more than just playing the songs, he helped keep all the events (Cake cutting, first dances, etc) on a tight schedule, and moved things along very smoothly. You don't realize how important a role the DJ plays in the overall flow of the reception, but Brett definitely was a major factor in our reception being such a success. We highly recommend Crackerjack Entertainment for anyone's wedding. You'll be in very good hands with Brett!

The cost was the only thing I didn't like, but it is understandable. Brett and Crackerjack Entertainment have one of the best websites we found in our DJ search. I only assume that there is a cost to keep up such a good website. I did have a few issues with it on my Android tablet but with a normal web browser it worked just fine.
Brett was great and even took our little cousin under his wing and showed him how to use the DJ equipment which looked state of the art.
