We used Total Encore DJ for our wedding reception in October 2015. Long story short, we were unhappy with their services and would not recommend them.

Overall, it seemed like communication between the owner and the DJ/emcee didn't ever take place, as information provided to one didn't make its way to the other. Prior to the wedding, our check for final payment was mailed well before the due date, but was lost because the company's address changed and we were never updated, either by email, phone, or an updated address on the company's website. The owner paid for our fees to cancel the check and pay by credit card, so I have to say that I appreciate him doing the right thing.

On the day of the wedding, our DJ/emcee didn't even know how to pronounce the groom's last name, and had to ask some of our guests. Luckily our friends decided not to be pranksters. They let the fathers give their speeches before champagne was poured, so there was nothing to toast with. They played the cake cutting song during our entrance, so we asked them to transpose the songs so they didn't play the same one during our actual cake cutting. They played the entirely wrong genre of music during dinner. We asked for a Frank Sinatra type of vibe during dinner, and they were playing pop songs from the 80's. During the dancing portion, they played the same song more than once, and played a song a guest requested that was on our do not play list.

Most upsetting of all, they played the wrong version of our first dance song, that we had taken dance lessons for and had choreographed down to the second. We had taken weekly dance lessons for about 9 months prior to the wedding, and this was stressed to the owner during the planning session, and to the DJ on the day of the wedding. The DJ played the opening of the song for me ahead of time, which sounded correct, but was a minute shorter compared to the original version we had choreographed.

Encore Events & Entertainment responded with the following comments:

My name is Jeff Fernandez and I am the owner/operator of Encore Events & Entertainment. First & foremost, I am truly apologetic that our staff did not provide the quality of service/product that we are CONSISTENTLY known for. In the days after the event, we felt based on feedback from the client & guests, that we had met the expectation. I only hope that you would have brought this to our attention sooner so we could have rectified these mistakes. I have taken immediate action with the team that was at the event. After retracing our steps, comparing notes, and analyzing what errors were made, we can only apologize profusely for what transpired. Encore Events & Entertainment has a very high reputation / standard (look at all 59 of our 5-star positive reviews) for the events it produces, and we will always have that commitment to excellence. We just wish that we had the opportunity to address this with you (Mr. & Mrs Witte) right away. We make no excuses for what had transpired, and are still willing to rectify the situation. Our sincerest apologies.

Jeff runs an absolutely wonderful DJ service company. He is very helpful and his prices are extremely fair, Look no further as you will not be disappointed with Jeff or any of his DJ's. They are very helpful in the planning stages and the night of our daughter's wedding could not of gone better. Jeff was not able to be at our event which made us a bit nervous but we should not of been. Marcus was the main DJ that night and he was so GREAT! We loved Marcus and his ability to make our daughter's wedding such a fun event. We really cannot say enough good about Jeff and his company. Our other daughter is getting married in January and we wish they could DJ for that wedding as well. The only problem is she is getting married on the other side of the country. Thanks Jeff for all your work getting things set up and thank you so much Marcus for all you did to make our reception the best!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jeff and Encore Events. They did a fantastic job of involving the crowd when appropriate, and other times just playing the perfect selection of music back to back spoke for itself. My wedding was far more fun than I thought it was going to be, and that is thanks in no small part to Jeff and Encore Events and all they did to make the atmosphere perfect.

In addition to great music, they provided a microphone and sound for our ceremony, and Jeff went above and beyond in helping me prepare a big surprise for the Bride. I played guitar and sang a song for my vows, and Jeff was great about picking up my guitar from the dressing room and keeping it hidden until the right moment. Suddenly there was a mic stand and my guitar on stage, and the Bride didn't know what was going on. It was a huge success!

If you are looking for a DJ who will do more than just play great music, but will also help to make your event special, look no further than Encore Events & Entertainment.

My husband and I used Encore Events for our wedding and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Jeff and his team are reliable, trustworthy, experienced, and so much fun! I highly recommend them. Jeff was willing to meet with us as often as needed, but we felt confident and comfortable after two meetings that he knew exactly what we wanted. We appreciated his thoroughness and ability to include all our ideas while also providing his expertise and suggestions that gave a complete picture of what the reception was going to be like. He did an amazing job setting a romantic and elegant music scene for the ceremony. Jeff and his team were so organized and didn't miss a detail in any part of the wedding, including ceremony, introductions, speeches, and dancing. He is truly talented in his ability to read the crowd and provide exactly what is needed to make the party run flawlessly and be ridiculously fun. The uplighting is also a really cool feature of their services and gave the party such a cool vibe!

Jeff with Encore Events & Entertainment is the best DJ! He made our wedding flow smoothly and kept the crowds energy up the entire night. I am not one to be picky about music so I let Jeff take the reins on good music to play and he did an awesome job. His set up looked great and the sounds quality was perfect. He accommodated all of our special sounds needs for an outdoor wedding. The dance floor was packed all night and everything went off without a hitch. Thanks Jeff!

Jeff did an excellent job as a DJ for our wedding. He provided seamless coverage for our outdoor ceremony, cocktail reception, and dinner reception. We had excellent communication with him leading up to the wedding. If anything, I worried that I didn't give him enough info as I was scrambling to get everything else ready but he had it all handled. He did an excellent job of communicating with our wedding planner as well to ensure everything ran smoothly. He listened to us as far as our musical tastes and filled in the gaps with other music along the same lines as we enjoy a few different genres. He also actually mixed the tracks which made it much more fun instead of just playing songs one after another. I have certainly attended weddings where DJs did the bare minimum required and I was so pleased that Jeff went above and beyond for us.

We were new to Colorado when our daughter got engaged. Our wedding planner recommended Jeff and we are so grateful she did! He is wonderful. He is extremely professional and offered suggestions to make our day special--and it truly was! Many of our guests commented that they "never dance at weddings" but they never came off the floor. He managed to get EVERYONE involved and up and moving. It was a blast!! We cannot say enough good things about Jeff...from start to finish, he was awesome. As we reflect and re-live the special day, we keep coming back to Jeff. We had a beautiful day...Jeff helped to make it FABULOUSLY beautiful. Many many thanks to you!

Jeff was amazing! When our wedding ceremony had some hiccups in the schedule, he remained professional and everything went off without an issue. The reception was a blast, from the introduction of the couple to the dinner to the dancing. Jeff was really easy to work with leading up to the wedding - he got a great idea of what kind of music we were looking for, did a run through a couple weeks before to make sure everything was good, and we were just able to trust him to read the crowd during the day. We heard everything from Jason Derulo to Backstreet Boys to Bon Jovi to Walk the Moon to Bruno Mars and a whole bunch more. Who knew our friends would go crazy when he put on Wilson Phillips?? The next few minutes were insane. I never thought I’d say we’d kiss while crowd surfing to R. Kelly’s Ignition. Other guests said “there were too many good songs, it was hard to take a break from dancing”. People would literally run to the floor when they heard a song come on. Jeff did an awesome job mixing songs, transitioning between them and even overlaying a couple on top of each other for a bit. Thank you so much Jeff for an awesome wedding!!

Jeff with Encore is the best! He was super easy to work with before the wedding and didn't need much guidance. He asked a few questions, totally understood what we wanted and just did the best job ever at the wedding! He kept the dance floor packed throughout the night and had seamless transitions. I didn't want the party to end! He did the perfect amount of speaking and helping us watch the clock all night to keep the whole night running on course. But he really is such a great DJ and is amazing at reading a room. I highly recommend him and Encore! Thanks Jeff for an amazing night!

We told Jeff we wanted a party and people on the dance floor all night. He ensured that happened! He picked awesome music for us and also played all of our songs we wanted as a bridal party. Everyone was having so much fun and we got tons of positive feedback on him and his team. I would recommend him to anyone. He was awesome!! 5+ stars all the way :)
