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 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.

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!!!

Victor Barruzza – Entertainment Specialists

Saying that DJ Vic was the perfect DJ for our special day is an absolute understatement. If we could plan it all over again, he would be the first person we would call to reserve.

My wife and I love music, but know very little about being a DJ. When we began discussing our ideal DJ, we were hoping to find someone who could manage the entire evening. It is most definitely a difficult skill to identify in a few short YouTube videos, but DJ Vic always seemed to have his guests engaged.

We reached out to him and found him to be very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and attentive. During our pre-wedding conference call, he walked us through the entire evening, discussing options and providing descriptive explanations to each of his suggestions. It really was an enjoyable experience, alleviating any concerns or unknowns that we may have previously had.

On our wedding day, DJ Vic was everything we had hoped for and more. During key moments, such as the first dance and mother/son dance, he was very attentive, knowing precisely when to slowly fade the music down. Throughout the rest of the evening, he always had a large group on the dance floor, even some people who we would never expect. From the cocktail hour, through the last song, his song selections were on point as if he knew precisely what song everyone wanted to hear next.

We really couldn’t more strongly recommend DJ Vic. He was the perfect DJ for our perfect day and we know that his unique talents would make him the prefect DJ for yours.

These guys were amazing! The photo booth was a surprise from my parents and they coordinated with my mother and the venue to ensure that is stayed a surprise till the reception! Ensuring the surprise led to more work for them as they were unable to set up early incase they were spotted! The props they brought were all in perfect condition. The workers were incredibly personable and kept the guests laughing and the booth full all night! They went above and beyond by supplying us with the digital images after the fact.

Entertainment Specialists is such a great company to work with! Barbara in the office is very responsive and always gets you what you need in an instant. DJ John Zucco was my DJ and I wouldn't have chosen anyone else for my day. I have worked in the events industry for over 8 years so the pressure was on to have the best of the best and John is just that! He is upbeat, professional, and really pays attention to what the guests are responding to. He fed off the energy of the crowd, and took requests without hesitation. He made my day AMAZING!! Mike and the whole team at Entertainment Specialists will definitely be able to make your day special too.

Entertainment Specialist was the quintessential A-team of professionalism, support and experience. From DJ Derek Holt, to the large open air photo booth, to the lighting design each of the team members ROCKED our wedding for us and brought their A game. DJ Derek had the dance floor packed all night (and brought his pink vinyls to match our colors), the photo booth flair provided Valentine's themed fun and the lighting specialist turned our room into a magical wonderland. One additional note - our wedding happened as a blizzard descended upon Boston. Entertainment Specialists stayed true to their contract and did not once mention potentially canceling. Means a tremendous amount as a bride that had to deal with a lot of last minute cancellations! You want this team for your event!

Vic graciously stepped in for us the day before our wedding after the winter storms in Boston broke the leg of original DJ. (Get well soon Mike!) We were obviously in a bit of a panic we when found out our DJ was headed in for emergency surgery but he made sure (from the ambulance!) to line up an amazing stand-in, Vic.
Vic did an incredible job. He really stepped up the plate and knocked it out of the park. People were dancing during dinner and never stopped. He knew exactly what the crowd wanted, played the perfect mix of songs and was completely professional and personable. We were very fortunate to have such an amazing DJ and it really help make our wedding perfect. We enthusiastically and highly recommend Vic. Thank you so much!

We hired Ron Furr for our November wedding and he was fantastic. I was nervous about hiring a dj at first, since a lot of the other weddings we went to recently had bands instead. I did not regret my decision! Ron has such an amazing energy with introductions and keeping the flow of the reception. After dinner, the dance floor was full the whole night! He allowed me to make requests before hand for dinner and dancing, took requests from guests and kept the energy high all night. We had a blast and heard from all of our guests that they couldn't help but dance all night!
