We used Steven Fortes (also known as DJ Rolo) for our wedding at the Sheraton Commander. From our first meeting with Steven, we knew that we had to choose him for our wedding. He is relaxed, professional and very easy to work with. He also approaches his job with limitless enthusiasm and charisma. While we didn't give him many requests, he handled what we provided him like it was no big deal. I explained to him about my one concern, keeping all generations happy with the music choices, and he reassured us that he could do that - and he did! The dance floor was packed all night with guests of all ages and it was great! He played all of our must have songs and every other song he chose was a hit. Everyone loved how he mixed different tracks and had a continuous flow of music all night. My now husband and I appreciated how he checked on us and always asked how and when we wanted to do different things (parent dances, cutting the cake, etc). Out of all the vendors we worked with, Steven was by far our favorite. We would highly recommend him for any wedding or event.

We had Charles as our DJ and amazing doesn't even begin to cover how great he was for our wedding! He was attentive, helpful and funny from the moment I contacted him. Meeting in person and hearing his expertise on how the day would go with little tips here and there was amazing. I'm a very detail oriented person and I felt that I could completely trust him after the first meeting to take my vision and run with it. I have received nothing but compliments from my wedding guests on what an amazing job he did. He kept the night flowing without being overly chatty and got everyone on the dance floor, and kept them there all night! He was attentive to what my husband and I wanted throughout the night, and was flexible when we threw him a few curve balls. And, at the end of the night we noticed he and his second hand had jumped into the Photo Booth for a funny picture to and left us a note to wish us well. I cannot say enough about Charles, and I hope to work with him again in the future. If you are looking for an amazing DJ, and organized DJ, and a professional DJ look no further!

The second we started planning our wedding, I knew we needed to use the same company my sister used for her wedding as people were up and dancing all night! We booked Mike Amado for our special day and I instantly knew it was the best decision. I told guests leading up to our wedding that we booked "the best of the best" and that's exactly what we got. Our guests were up and dancing all night long! I think my husband and I even sacrificed taking extra wedding pictures just so we didn't have to leave the dance floor. We have friends and family telling us our wedding was "one of the best" they've been to. Mike was easy to work with and clearly knows what he's doing. He made it easier for us as we just let him do his thing and weren't overbearing with song choices or things that needed to happen-let him do his job, he knows how to do it best. We felt confident in his ability and he proved us right. As I look at pictures from my wedding night, people were all over the dance floor; smiling, grooving and clearly having a GREAT time-ugh, I wish I could relive it all over. Do yourself a favor and go with ES and if you're lucky enough, Mike will be available for your wedding! You won't regret it!!

We were lucky to be able to book Mike for our wedding on short notice, and it was a great experience all around. He was very prompt at answering all of our questions before the wedding so that we felt comfortable with exactly how the day would look. He was also very flexible about meeting with us in Boston at a time that worked for both of us to go over the final details, names, playlists etc.
The wedding itself went perfectly, both the outdoor ceremony and the indoor reception. Mike was a great MC as well and made sure that everyone got up to dance after our first dance; we were slightly concerned since this was a day wedding. Mike really had the party going after that, with a good balance of fast and slow songs – our guests were clearly having a great time, and we loved it.
We also got the photo booth from him and used the printouts as wedding favors, which worked perfectly – there were tons of all kinds of funny props and everyone loved taking photos with them. The scrapbook with printed out photos and notes from guests, as well as the USB with all the photos taken, were great keepsakes for us (and very funny!). We highly recommend Mike and Entertainment Specialists!

We recently got married at the Hyatt in Newport RI and chose Ron Furr from Entertainment Specialists as our DJ, after interviewing quite a few DJ's. We also chose Entertainment Specialists to perform the up-lighting for our wedding, and were very happy with the results. Ron was amazing from the beginning. We wanted a big party, lots of dancing and a great time, and expressed that to Ron from the very beginning. Ron was very eager to jump on board with our vision, and helped us out with song selections, layout of the night, and was available at any time to answer any questions. The night of the wedding was everything we wanted and more, and Ron was a big part of making that happen. Ron was able to read our guests, figure out what would keep them on the dance floor, and knew when to switch it up. Ron was extremely professional and helpful during the entire reception. We're so happy that we chose Ron, as we're still receiving compliments of what a great time everyone had at our wedding!

The theme of our wedding was "FUN" and as soon as we met Mike Amado we knew he was the right person to DJ our wedding. He has a great energy about him and his experience with getting people out of their seats and onto the dance floor is bar none. Mike was extremely flexible and easy to work with and all of our requests were taken and executed perfectly. From the opening song to the last song, Mike had the guests killing the dance floor. Your search stops HERE - your night will be unforgettable with Mike behind the DJ table.

We are so happy with the services Mike Amado and his crew provided for our wedding. From great music to beautiful up-lighting and draping, Mike's team does it all and they do it well. All of our guests enjoyed the music he played and really loved that he walks around and takes requests. The evening felt very interactive. We would highly recommend people use Mike's services over hiring a wedding band - I would much rather hear the real thing over wedding band covers. Our biggest regret was not having Mike stay later into the evening. Thanks Mike and crew for making our night so special :)

On May 15 this year we had our big day. It was perfect in every way and a large part of that was DJ Holtie. That guy is amazing. He nailed every aspect of our formal songs and introductions, and did so with an awesome energy. Then it was on to the party... The second he started spinning, the dance floor was flooded! It stayed that way until the very last second! We never wanted him to stop! Most people had a hard time stepping outside to cool off or go to the bar for a drink because the music was that good! Nobody wanted to leave. We've been hearing about how amazing he was from everyone who attended, regardless of age. Quite a few of our guests have weddings coming up and he is officially their guy. One couple even cancelled their already hired DJ because he swept them off their feet. DJ Holtie will forever be massive part of what we remember about our day. He brought the party to a whole other level. Thanks Holtie!!!

Charles Mercer was our DJ at our wedding. It was amazing! He had so many good suggestions through out the planning process that made my wedding simply amazing. From the moment out reception started there were people on the dance floor, within an hour almost all of our 220 guests were on the dance floor. He kept the party going on night. He did such a great job reading the crowd and played lots of different music. My guest are still talking about how amazing our DJ was. I would highly recommend Charles for your DJ! I can't wait until my sister gets married so she can use him!
