At first my husband and I were really hoping to have a live band play at our wedding. As we got further into the planning process, we realized that it simply wasn't in our budget. We had heard Greg Capozzi DJ at a friend's wedding, and immediately reached out to C-Zone to see if Greg was free. Greg wasn't free, but Charles Azgara had availability. From the moment we interviewed Charles we knew he was going to be a great fit. Born in Cali, he's laid back and "go with the flow" -- a perfect fit for my husband and I. In the final planning meeting, Charles listened to our requests and took notes, making us feel at ease. He cut a special track for my dance with my dad, and was quick to make changes in our playlist even days before our wedding. On the night of our wedding, our 150 wedding guests never left the dance floor. He played a perfect mix of music for all generations and mixed songs into one another unlike any DJ I've ever heard. C-Zone's motto was completely evident...Charles didn't make it his show, but instead he did everything he could to make our event more than we could have ever imagined. After the wedding, one of the first things our guests commented on was how great the DJ was. We cannot thank you enough, Charles & C-Zone!

Greg Capozzi was perfection! We had a lively, dancing crowd, and he was able to keep every single person on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone from our grandparents/parents to our best friends were thoroughly entertained with the song selection. He coordinated the entire reception without a flaw, everything from the entrance to the final dance was perfect. Throughout the night there were some strange song requests from our guests, songs that just wouldn't fit into our reception...he ran everything by both my husband and I before playing anything. Words can simply not describe what Greg did at our wedding. I highly recommend him to ANYONE for ANY occasion. We can't wait to plan another event for C-Zone to be a part of!!!

I can't recommend C-Zone and DJ John Dolan enough! From beginning to end, working with everyone at C-Zone was a great experience. Everyone is quick to respond to questions, their online tools are super helpful, and the prices were reasonable for a fantastic product.

We had a live guitarist (Bjorn) for the ceremony and cocktail hour, a DJ (John Dolan) for the reception and also had some uplighting that gave our reception space a dramatic look.

I met a few times with John before the wedding and we were on the same page from the start. Once he said "it's not my show, it's your party," I knew we'd get along. He really exceeded my expectations during the reception! All of the mixes were great, he kept the energy up, and (thanks to the online playlist we put together) had a great variety of favorites and surprises. Our dance floor was packed the entire time, which is exactly what we wanted.

Mike and C-Zone are really amazing. Professional, intuitive, thoughtful, accommodating, and able to get everyone on their feet (even grandma!) and dancing so they don't know how two hours went by. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone--he's a gem.

I am so glad I chose to book through C-Zone. The staff was extremely helpful with any questions I had throughout the year and the online forms were super convenient. Mike Paganelli was INCREDIBLE. Our guests cannot stop talking about how he had the dance floor packed! I would recommend C-Zone (& Mike!) to anyone looking for DJ/Uplighting!

Our experience with Greg has set a new standard for artistic, professional, and performance capabilities. Arriving to our wedding reception, we were greeted by a live, light jazz trio that beckoned guests into the cocktail area, the lead saxophone led by none other than Greg himself. For an hour our guests and us were mesmerized by their classy, soothing melody until moving to the reception area. Once there, Greg assumed the role of DJ for the remainder of the night. We've collectively seen far too many weddings where the DJ thinks he's the semi-star of the night and commands the mic with tacky cliches...Greg actually was a star, but for all the right reasons. His musical choice during the reception was classy and perfect, his introductions and word choice concise and elegant, and his ability to keep his fingers on the pulse of the party were impeccable. He was the muse of the night, coaxing everyone into a haze of fun, laughter, and a whole hell of a lot of dancing. Thank you, Greg!

We worked with CZone and Keith (our DJ) over the last year for our wedding. They were always professional and Keith was not only a fantastic DJ but also so flexible and was all about making it special for us. He gave us tons of ideas, but in the end, he allowed us to make all of the decisions and really run the event how we wanted. We also used them to make a cd for our cocktail hour, uplighting, and a gobo (spotlight with our initials on the dance floor) - all of which I definitely recommend! I cannot say enough good things about them!

Our Wedding Guests Never Left the Dance Floor! We are so thankful for the fabulous services of Mike Panganelli as our DJ that we felt compelled to call him from our honeymoon! Mike is a young talented DJ Dynamo from the exemplary C Zone Entertainment company. As a mature couple, reunited after 32 years, we wanted a Grand wedding celebration with a definite Gatsby era flare! Our request for Mike as our prospective DJ was certainly unique, and a bit of a tall order!
We were searching for a DJ who could help build a play list of music from the Gatsby /Roaring 20s era , Greek and Celtiic music to represent our heritage, and an overarching request for music for an age span of 14 - 75. Mike accepted our challenge, and was inspired to learn new era of music, we were in sync !

In a few words, Mike is flexible, responsive, attentive,and candid, his spirit for his work is amazing ! But when you meet him, you encounter the Best of Mike!, you can actually see the spark in his eyes and hear the confidence in his voice! Early on, he told us that he knows when to step back and play on, and he knows when to step forward and spark the crowd to dance! We knew this was what we needed. At our wedding, we got the chance to see him do this in action .....and it worked, everyone was dancing, even those who don't usually dance!. Mike synchronized those sillly little reception pieces of cake cutting , bouquet and garter throws to keep it interesting for all. Mike Rocked our Reception !
A Shout Out to Greg as owner , and Julie and Diane as office team is earned for their persistent support and flexibile approach to all requests. All of our interactions with CZone included exemplary value , and response , they have what you need. Our guests and ourselves are singing high praises to our friends and our family re the excellence of services provided by Mike Panganelli as our DJ and C Zone Entertainment! Make them your choice too!

Charles did an absolutely amazing job at our wedding. He was professional from the start and met with us a few times during the year to discuss our preferences. He was there early to set-up and we trusted him completely. The day of, he kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night, and played the songs we wanted as well as other songs he knew would get people dancing. Overall, a fantastic experience--would definitely recommend him to others!

Greg and his entire C-Zone company were wonderful to work with for our wedding. They were professional, responsive, and fun to work with throughout the entire planning process! Greg went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day of the event- when the power went out due to a big storm, Greg even wired his car battery to the sound system to keep the music playing! I am so happy I chose C-Zone & Greg for our wedding, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
