Can't thank Donatelli Entertainment enough for his knowledge. He is truly a person who perfects his craft and makes sure the client is taken care of during the whole process. Our wedding ceremony music and reception music were spot on. He even provided a backup mic for my brother to karaoke a song during the best man speech! Dom is truly a perfectionist in the planning and it shows! Would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dom was amazing! He worked with the entire time leading up to our wedding and made sure everything was planned out. During the reception, one bridal party member spilled a drink all over herself and Dom helped transition the speeches to later so effectively and no one even noticed. Dom's attention to detail is second to none. He cut each bridal party entrance song down to 30 second clips during the announcing portion of the event. He worked directly with our photographer's to ensure that every moment was captured. And most importantly...he kept the dance floor packed ALL night with songs everyone loved. I couldn't be happier we picked Dom. A DJ can make or break the wedding reception and he clearly made ours perfect!

Thinking back on my wedding day, I am utterly disgusted that I hired Dontatelli Entertainment for my wedding. If you have any other choice, I would HIGHLY suggest going with it. What I found most disturbing is his level of professionalism. My reason being for this is because he discusses everything about your wedding on his own personal facebook page. There is no such thing as privacy in his business. Days before your wedding, he will comment on the type of people you will have attend your wedding. On wedding day, he will comment and share with the public any negative thoughts and opinions he has about you, your wedding party and your family. What is extremely sad is he is supposed to be there for you and make the process easier but instead puts you and your family on public display with no regards to professionalism and your feelings. In terms of his flexibility, he does not adjust well to change. Two of my bridesmaids were partnered up with different groomsmen from the ceremony. Instead of switching it on his paper to walk in like any good DJ would do since this isn’t a big deal, he flipped out at my entire wedding party minutes before we were going to enter the reception. This not only caused a commotion but made the entire walk in process over complicated and frustrating. He also had the nerve to insult my father in law when he requested that he play more slow songs since a good majority of our reception was older and was not dancing. He did not read the crowd well or play songs that would allow our family to get up and dance. For the sake of our upcoming wedding, I request that you do yourself a favor and choose another DJ. Don’t make the same mistake we made.

Donatelli Entertainment responded with the following comments:

I am utterly shocked that my 1st review EVER, below 5 stars came with claims I was insulting you and your guests on my "personal" Facebook page. If you read the over 50 reviews, you will see NOTHING at all close to those types of allegations. Flexibility? Read ANY random review of me and you will see comments about me being flexible. Was it frustrating to learn that even after speaking with the groom 2 days before the Friday wedding, to go over bridal party names and lineup, that things had drastically changed? Sure. But if you recall, we flipped over my typed out list and re-wrote everyone's name on the back and announced them all in the new order you now wanted. What you forgot to mention, about my flexibility, was that 2 songs "after" the garter removal and bouquet toss, you then immediately wanted me to add a garter toss. I quickly added a song within 30 seconds and we did the toss, even though, AGAIN, when we went over the Event Info sheet on the phone with your groom, 2 days prior, you chose not to fill out the garter toss option. If your father in law was insulted because I didn't play enough slow songs, I apologize. Slow songs and oldies are typically played more toward the beginning of the open dancing as to appease the older crowd. In order for me to do MY job, I cannot always play every request. In the end, I stand by the 50+ reviews of 5/5 stars. I stand by the organization, planning and communication with my clients before each event and I certainly stand by the smiling faces of over 300 bride and grooms as they are continuously thanking me for helping make their night amazingly unforgettable! What makes this hard to swallow is that why did it take you 61 days to respond if you were so insulted? I completely question the validity of this review as the timing and 'selective' accusations are unfair and unsubstantiated. As always, like I do with every bride and groom, I wish you and Coop, nothing but the best in your life together.

My husband and I LOVED what Donatelli Entertainment provided. Dominic was flexible, enthusiastic, professional and organized. We had many relatives and friends who were not big on dancing but Dominic mixed the songs perfectly to get the majority on the dance floor the whole night! Dominic guided us through the fast paced evening just as he said he would. Couldn't recommend him more! Thanks again! Marissa & Joe.

Dominic was referred by several friends and acquaintances and we couldn't be happier with his services. He was extremely quick with responding to emails etc. He was very friendly and not to mention very reasonably priced. For our ceremony music he made sure to edit it just right to make it fit and he did the same thing for parts of our reception. Futhermore, he was on point with transitioning into different things we had planned throughout the evening. He made the entire event run smoothly. Overall he did an amazing job and we would highly recommend him for any event.

Dom was amazing to work with! He met with us multiple times and answered every question I could throw at him. I came to one of our last meetings with a timeline that I thought made sense and he helped me tweak it so it was still what I wanted but had a better flow. He kept the dance floor full the whole night and knew how to expertly mixed in the "odd" songs we wanted. He was even able to edit our intro song and mother/son song perfectly. I would recommend to anyone!

We're so happy we chose Dominic as our DJ for our wedding. From our first contact with him, he was informative and professional. He answered emails and phone calls quickly. He met with us several times to help us choose music and go over the timeline. He did a separate set-up for both the ceremony and the reception, all for a great price. He did a great job announcing events. Most importantly, he kept the party going all night! Our guests had a great time dancing to the music. Thanks, Dominic!

I would recommend Donatelli Entertainment without hesitation. We had a wonderful wedding, and received numerous compliments about our reception. Everyone loved the cozy atmosphere during dinner and had so much fun dancing afterwards! The music makes all the difference! He even created a link through which our guests could request songs, which everyone loved! His attention to detail was so impressive. We are 100% satisfied, and can't imagine our wedding day without the amazing service that Dom brought to the table. Thank you so much for all of your help - you made our wedding reception unforgettable!!
