We had Encore L'Amore for our winter wedding and they were absolutely amazing. From when we first met with Rob you could tell he was very professional and awesome to work with. We did not know a'lot about the song selections for certain parts during the ceremony and reception and he had great suggestions and guided us right through the process. Every part of the wedding was right on point and there were zero issues or flaws during the night. His music selection from the cocktail hour to the reception was amazing and the night flowed very smoothly. I could not have imagined working with another DJ and If I could give him 10 stars I would. Also I would highly recommend using the photo booth (it was a hit and fun for all age groups). Rob I just want to thank you for making our night awesome!

We heard great things about this company and after speaking with the owner we knew we had to book them right away. We quickly found out who our DJ was for our special night and was kind of skeptical of how he would do. Well there was NO reason to be nervous, stressed, skeptical whatever we were feeling because he was absolutely INCREDIBLE. His name is Dave Frederick (Request him). As a main job for a DJ, it is to show up, play the music, keep the audience attention, and just entertain. Well with Dave it was more than just being our DJ, his main priority was my Husband and I. His main focus was our wants/needs, happiness, and he definitely accomplished that on our wedding night. The music was EVERYTHING we wanted, he listened to us very intently, and he ALWAYS made sure Ben and I were having a great time (of course along with the audience). When things came up he quickly brought it to my husband or I's attention even if we were dancing away on the dance floor he would join in on the moves and quickly telling us his thoughts. He wasn't just our DJ that night he was our guest and friend too!
I can go on and on about how amazing Dave was. Its in your best interest to book with Encore L'Amore Events and please request DAVE FREDERICK if you want a unforgettable night to remember!
-Dave you were awesome and we cant thank you enough. We are so incredibly thankful! Keep up the amazing work, you have a bright future ahead! -Kelli and Ben

Rob McDowell, owner of Encore Entertainment, was a recommendation to us by friends who had him as their DJ when he was just starting out his business. So, we were surprised to find out that Rob was now incredibly successful and had many clientele working for him (who he trains himself). Rob has been awarded the 2007 and 2008 The Knot’s best DJ award. We were told that Rob was the best, that he would make our wedding the best ever. Of course I had to find out for myself. When I called, he was fun, upbeat, confident, and so reassuring about his abilities that I never doubted how fun and successful my wedding would be. But his abilities surpassed even these expectations. I am a busy medical student attending Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine and my time is limited, meaning I was mostly in contact with Rob through email. I didn't have time to pick out every song for the reception. This is the ultimate reason I hired Rob. Rob handled the planning of my reception with such professionalism that I never worried!! My new husband and I met with Rob the day before the wedding (when I was available in Columbus), ran through the details and my wedding was the most beautiful, fun wedding I have ever been to. My parents received calls throughout the next week (while I was on my honeymoon) from friends and family continually gushing about the success, the smoothness of the reception and the atmosphere Rob McDowell created that made it fun for every single person attending no matter how young or old.

Not only was Rob incredibly professional and a huge success, he took our wedding as seriously as if it was his own. Honestly, now that I can sit down and think about it, he made it seem as if our wedding was the only wedding he had all year. This personal service made it seem like he only needed our business. I never ran into conflicts when trying to contact him or talk to him or ask him questions. He was there on the phone within 10 minutes or an email reply within the hour. I love a prompt person and he prompt and personal. I couldn’t have asked for a better person for the job.

My fiancé took a liking to Rob immediately. Obviously the guy isn't that excited all the time to go meet with vendors. But my fiancé made it a point to be at the DJ meetings every time. My husband (now..haha) hit it off with Rob and Rob treated us both like we were lifelong friends. What I’m saying is, if you want a DJ that is so personal it seems like you are his only project (we all know he was incredibly busy), Rob should be your DJ. I cannot tell you how pleased we were with his service. Rob honestly has a talent that can't be matched by any other DJ I have seen at a wedding.

On top of that, Rob ran the entire reception. Meaning, he was the guy that said when to serve food, when we would do the dances, when the bouquet toss was, etc. He didn’t run around the reception looking hurried, he calmly and discreetly would approach the appropriate parties and tell them when it was time to do what they needed to do. It took the load off our shoulders when trying to coordinate the reception. Since he was in charge of the entire reception, no one (not me, my husband, mom or dad) had to worry about a thing. Rob took care of it all. We didn't even have a wedding planner...that is how GREAT Rob is at what he does.
Encore Entertainment allows you to choose who you want to do your DJ-ing. We chose Rob and he also brought a wonderful guy that worked with him to help Rob out. He was also amazing. Anyone who get Rob or the guys working with him will be pleased and so happy. Of course I can’t stop gushing, but it is because my husband and I honestly believe that our investment in this young man and company was the best we could do with our money, time, and trust. I hope each new bride gets the amazing experience like I had with Rob McDowell and Encore Entertainment. Honestly, hire this company, you won’t have to worry about a thing and it will MAKE your wedding day unique and special!

Lastly, here is personal THANK YOU to Rob. You have touched our lives in an incredible way. We wouldn't have wanted any other DJ to run our reception on the most important day of our lives, our wedding day. We feel truly blessed to have had your professionalism, honestly, hard work, kindness, laughter, joking, sweat and tears on this project. I dont care what it would have cost; if I had known how wonderful you would have made our wedding day when I hired you, you could have asked for ANY amount and we would have paid it. Thank you so much Rob, I KNOW you will be the best DJ for anyone who asks it of you.

Rob, the owner of Encore, was absolutely incredible throughout the wedding process and the day itself. My husband and I were initially leaning towards booking a band for our reception, but Rob came so highly recommended to me from my wedding coordinator at the Statehouse, that we decided to go with him and are SO glad that we did! He was extremely professional and responded to my emails in a quick manner. We booked Rob about a year and a half before our wedding day, and within that time frame he had moved to Myrtle Beach, SC. Even though he was working from Myrtle Beach, he made it a priority to meet with my husband and I in Columbus before our wedding when he was in town for another wedding. Rob had great suggestions about music selections and the timing of all of the small details of the reception, and he was equally great the day of the wedding, making the time to come up to me whenever needed to update me on the timing of things (which I liked because I am a control freak). We also used Rob for uplighting, and WOW did it make the space look amazing!! The dance floor was packed from start to finish, and we owe that to Rob. My husband and I could not be happier with our decision to go with Rob for our DJ... HIGHLY recommend!!

A friend of mine recently was married and recommended Rob at Encore. Rob was wonderful! From the beginning I was unsure of music choices and how I wanted the evening to flow. Rob gave great suggestions and kept everyone in attendance dancing all night! I have attended many weddings previously and have experienced the 'obnoxious dj'. we all know the type, loud, semi annoying and sounding as if they are at an auction rather than a wedding. Rob was never over the top and always professional and dressed very nicely! He looked like a guest at the wedding, not a dj in an oversized tuxedo. I appreciated this. There was rain on our wedding day and we he to leave locations to take pictures so my husband and I were a little late returning for dinner and set the timing of everything off and we were starving so we decided at the VERY last minute to change the order of how we wanted things to go. Rob agreed with a smile and was very accommodating. I would recommend Rob to anyone!

The most unprofessional company I've ever worked with. We were scheduled to have Joe as our DJ for our wedding day and had met with him a few weeks before the wedding to discuss all the details. At 4pm on our wedding day, two different DJs showed up, dressed in street clothes, with no idea of where to set up or what music to play. For our ceremony the music sounded terrible, like it has been streamed off of YouTube. We had to start late because they weren't set up in time. At the reception the Father of the Bride had to introduce the bridal party and MC the event because the DJs had no idea what to do. In our previous meeting we had asked for the clean edited version of songs and during our cake cutting the F word was blasted across the speakers. They completely ruined our wedding. The DJs were good at the dance portion of the night, but you could tell they clearly had no experience being wedding DJs. We received our money back but it in no way makes up for the disaster and stressed they caused. I would never recommend this company to anyone.

Joe DJ'd our wedding, and he did an amazing job. He kept everyone on the dance floor the entire time. We were skeptical at first because encore wasn't as well known at the time when we booked them, but we were so happy we did. Our wedding was the most fun wedding we have ever been to (and I know I am biased but it was!) and a lot of our friends said the same thing. I think the reason why is because Joe did such an amazing job. I felt like he was reading my mind when I explained what type of vibe we wanted! It was perfect. We tried to switch our photo booth to encore as well, and we wish we had, because they would have impressed us way more than our photobooth vendor did (they were awful). Thanks Joe!!
