The only complaint I have is that they were a little hard to get ahold of, even for payments. I had a pretty good playlist for them to go off of and they did a great job with that. Easy to work with and did a great job with the dance floor.

Kerry, the owner, provided services at our wedding. He was more than I expected and extremely accomadating in what we wanted. Kerry provided services at our ceremony also and everyone complimented how wonderful the music was.
For our ceremony, there were guests on the dance floor the whole evening. Entertainment Express is highly recommended.

Attended a recent outdoor wedding and was really impressed with the DJ, Entertainment Express. The music changed to get more people on the dance floor, since it was slow-going at first. There was a rush to get inside the tent since he was set outside because dinner was under the tent and the weather started getting bad, but I shocked to see how quickly he moved all of the big equipment and switched gears without complaint. I have been to a number of events that Entertainment Express played and they have never disappointed!

Kerry called the day before the wedding to tell me that his email wasn't working anymore and that my song list wasn't showing up for him, but he was somehow able to get the planning list. Though he did whatever he wanted anyways. He did not provided his own cover incase of rain and there was a 35% chance of rain after MIDNIGHT on our wedding day. So after dinner he decides he needs to move his area I had asked his to play out first day song and the bridal party songs before he moved. Guess what?! he didn't nor did he even announce that he was moving so people started to leave thinking the wedding was over. Kerry said it was only going to take 20 minutes to move 1 1/12 hours later we all had to start rushing him to get started There were so many other things that he really messed up on and never once apologized.

We LOVED our DJ Kerry!! From the first time we met Kerry, we felt we'd made the right decision. He has 30 years of experience behind him, and has thought out potential problems that I would never have considered-and he has the solutions to make your event perfect. His website contains over 16,000 songs that you can choose as either "Must Play," "Play if Possible," or "Do Not Play." If you want something not on the list, he will find it for you. I requested 2-3 songs not on the list, and he played them all. You can also choose what songs you'd like for any of the special moments-like the 1st dance, bouquet toss, and grand entrance. A couple of days before the wedding, Kerry will call you just to make sure everything is right and to make sure he knows how to pronounce the wedding party's names. I would definitely use Entertainment Express again!

Absolute best entertainment! My sister had the same DJ and he was able to drive to Chicago for our wedding which was awesome! Literally the dance floor was packed until the event ended at midnight. Could not have asked for a better DJ or better experience! Worth every penny!

While the appearance of the website could use some updating, they have great planning forms online. It helped a lot to see what songs they have and what we needed to provide. We had many special requests, and they were happy to play what we gave them. John did a great job at our wedding. He was easy to work with, and our guests had so much fun!

I had booked Entertainment Express because they seemed like a great value and the owner, Kerry, seemed very nice. A week before our wedding, I tried to get in touch with them. After a few days, we finally stopped the phone tag and were able to start putting things together. John DJed our wedding ceremony and reception. He was very polite on the phone when I spoke to him and very flexible when I called him two days before the wedding and asked to change a song for us. The day of the wedding went smoothly, except for John taking a bit too long to change songs (i.e., from intros to cake cutting, and from groomsmen and bridesmaids walking down aisle). At the time, we just went with the flow. And it wasn't until the night was winding down that my husband and I realized that a lot of what was on our must play list, wasn't played at all. Now, this doesn't mean that the songs he chose were horrible, they were just catered for an older crowd, which we had. But, what is the point of having a must play list if you don't follow it? The online planning forms that Entertainment Express has on their website are very convenient and really simple to use. I'm not sure if I had to chose a DJ again that I would chose Entertainment Express. Maybe the DJ I had just was not very "hip" with music. Another thing that we also thought was weird, he played a "game" which consisted of handing out keys to the women we invited and during dinner announcing that it was time to give the keys up to my husband's bachelor pad...it was just really awkward. And the whole handing my husband handcuffs during the garter toss--awkward. Just awkward. Next time, if you plan on doing a silly joke, you should probably check with the bride and groom, because our grandmothers and grandfathers, moms and dads were sitting watching us.

Kerry was an excellent DJ. He worked very hard with us to make our day special. Him and my dad got along very well and made sure he would be the one to dj our reception. He also was able to swing working for our ceremony too. It was a tight squeeze, but he made it happen. Our guests really enjoyed the music, which was a big concern, we had an older crowd. They were up and dancing and the "couple dance" was a huge success, he picked great songs. My brother-in- law and his girlfriend were supposed to graduate the same day as our wedding, but didn't attend. He made an announcement and then played the graduation song afterwards. It was such a surprise. It's the little details that get you. A song came on and we couldn't quite remember the moves and suddenly the dj came out on the dance floor and started doing the moves and walked us through it. According to the photographer (they worked many weddings together for 10+ years) said he's never seen him get out on the dance floor before. It was the funniest thing ever. Everyone had a great time and thank goodness he did that, we looked goofy. It made for some hilarious photos. All in all, we felt confident with our decision with Kerry right away and knew we picked the right guy even after the day was over.
