DJ Carl provided our ceremony music and was the MC as well as the DJ for our reception. DJ Carl, met with us before the wedding to ensure our vision and day was nothing short of amazing! He is very professional, ensured names were pronounced correctly and the order of songs was captured. DJ Carl kept people on the dance floor, even had the unexpected people up and dancing. Everyone was asking for the playlist of songs, I had to admit well we just have an outstanding DJ that took the crowd and kept them engaged. Everyone enjoyed is music selection and had a GREAT time! Thank you DJ Carl!!

Everything flowed on our wedding day like an organized program of sequential events. There were no long boring intermittent gaps of down time. After all of the traditional reception customs our guest tore up the dance floor. D.J Carl definitely rocked our reception!

I want to start by saying that I am hispanic and my now husband is white. Having said that, we needed to find a DJ that would understand the mix and understand the different rhythms and beats and how to keep both of our families and friends on the dance floor. When we met with DJ Carl, we both automatically knew he would be our DJ. He is so knowledgable about music and he was able to explain things to us about the songs and the "beats per second" and we felt so comfortable with him we automatically booked him right then and there although he was not pushing us at all to sign, I did not wanted to risk the date! DJ Carl is also very organized and provided us with a questionnaire and was very specific to our needs. He was also able to make a mix for the father daughter dance which was awesome! During the reception, once people started dancing, no one left the dance floor until the very end which is the whole key to a DJ. He was also able to organize our bridal party and give all of them instructions as to the order in which they needed to be for the introductions, what to do, where to stand and no one was lost or confused which saved me a headache :). If you want to make sure people dance and have fun at your wedding or event, CALL DJ CARL :). He is truly awesome, very responsible, charismatic, professional and the best DJ ever! Thanks DJ CARL :).

Since my groom and I love R&B and Soul music, we really wanted a DJ that would understand and play exactly what we wanted to hear. We spoke to DJ Carl and knew, quickly, that he would be able to cater to our every music need! My wedding planner pointed out that DJ Carl is not only great with the music, but he is an awesome emcee- which I had not thought about. After the one brief conversation with DJ Carl, we completed his forms and he was ready for our event. He helped out with the sound for our ceremony which was greatly appreciated and saved us from paying almost double to the venue for the same thing. He was very flexible with me, even creating a special First Dance Mash-up that my groom requested at the last minute- which was a huge hit! DJ Carl directed the wedding reception flawlessly and once the dancing began, it didn't stop. We were so pleased with his choice of music and the pace with which he changed songs. DJ Carl looks great, sounds great and is a great guy to work with and I thought his price was very reasonable. I was so pleased when my friend said "This is the best music ever at a wedding." You can't go wrong with DJ Carl!!! We hope to have him at events in the future! Elena...

DJ Carl was absolutely amazing at our destination Wedding in Isla Mujeres Mexico. We had the opportunity to meet with Carl in NYC prior to our event and he was extremely professional-came to the meeting with suggestions and really want to learn about myself and my husband so that he could make our Wedding personal and fitting to us and our personalities. Carl was very easy to get in touch with prior to our event via e-mail and phone-he arrived early to our Wedding Reception to ensure everything was set up properly-he even wore a green tie to match our colors! We had a smaller wedding (60 guests) and I was a bit concerned about people dancing- DJ Carl played a great mix of music to get everyone on their feet! He worked with us prior to the event to organize how our families traditional activities would best fit during our reception (the cake cutting, the Hora-Jewish Chair Dance, speeches, the singing of Stola, etc.) and everything flowed perfectly! We had an unfortunate issue with the resorts electricity in Mexico during our reception and the power went out a few times (4) causing (of course) the music to stop abruptly- DJ Carl was amazing at keeping the party going-luckily the power went back on quickly (only a few seconds) but I know this could have interrupted the entire night if we didn't have a DJ that was able to keep everything upbeat and stress free for me! He handled this situation extremely well and I know there was a probably lot more going on "behind the scenes" in order to ensure we had an incredible experience. I would highly recommend DJ Carl to any Bride/Event Planner looking for an amazing experience tailored to your specific personalities-my husband and I had an amazing time at our reception and I owe a great deal of that to DJ Carl-thank you! .
