Mike Amado did an amazing job as our wedding DJ. We could not have been happier with the service. Our guests are still raving about what a great music seletion there was. This was certainly not an easy task as my husband and I have very different music preferences. Everyone was on the dance floor all night long. Mike never missed a beat...from the beautiful ceremony to all the announcements and finally the last song. I couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Mike is a true professional who knows how to host any kind of wedding.

Mike is amazing!! He is the best DJ we could have asked for at our wedding! We gave him a few songs to play but told him to play any song based on who was on the dance floor. He had ALL our wedding guests up and dancing - even those that don't dance! Trust Mike in choosing the music- hes a DJ- that's what you pay him for :) If you want an amazing DJ who will make sure your event is flawless - go with Mike!

I was so impressed with Mike Amado as my DJ. He was extremely professional, a great listener, and gave excellent suggestions. He made my husband and I feel comfortable and at ease from the very beginning. He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We had a wide range of ages at our wedding and he played music that got everybody dancing. I would highly recommend Mike!

If I could give more stars I would. Entertainment Specialists provided DJ services and lighting for my June wedding. The lighting throughout the night was awesome! I first used purple, which was the color of my bridesmaid dresses, which matched wonderfully. Then I let ES take over the lighting as they seemed fit and it was awesome - when the music was jumping the lights were often changing and really fit the mood of the night. Mike Amado was the DJ. From the moment I met him, I knew he would be the perfect DJ and that he was and then some. He exceeded my expectations and needed no direction of what type of music to play to keep the crowd rocking all night long. I am still being asked how I found the DJ and who was he because he was the best they ever heard, especially at a wedding. The mixes of songs was awesome, not to mention his scratching skills with the records. Mike definitely knows how to MC and work the crowd as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Mike was an outstanding DJ! We were very pleased with the music he played and the uplighting that was used to set the ambiance at our wedding reception. Mike worked closely with us throughout our planning to ensure he delivered exactly what we envisioned for our wedding reception. He even played beyond what was written in our contract. I highly recommend Mike Amado.

DJ Charles Mercer came highly recommended from a good friend of mine, who had hired him for her work events. From the start I knew we were a good fit. We got along well, and he was so knowledgable about what he did, but not at all pushy. He was willing to meet us both at a coffee shop close to our home as well as at our home to plan out how the ceremony and reception would go, and he was so personable with us that we felt like we knew him for years.

Charles helped the ceremony and reception go off without even a hint of a hitch. He had our guests and both of us dancing from the start of the reception to the very end, and played everything that everyone wanted. He was also awesome about double checking with me that it was okay to play a certain song, and I was so impressed with how professional, yet extremely friendly and fantastic he was. We would recommend him to anyone, and hire him again in a heartbeat.

I had DJ Mike Amado, from the entertainment specialists, for my wedding this past June. He truly was a professional. Mike did a great job with the uplighting, and kept everyone dancing for the evening. He also came early, for the ceremony, at the Oceancliff, to wire my brother, who officiated our wedding. I would highly recommend him.

We had the privilege of working with DJ Steven Fortes from ES for our wedding and everything was absolutely perfect! The music was fantastic and had all the right tracks to get our guests on the dance floor. If you have a chance to work with him I would highly recommend it! He is professional, has quality music to fit all events and cultures (which is important!), and genuinely loves what he does. We were completely at ease knowing that he was handling the entertainment portion of the wedding.

Mike Amado was absolutely fantastic! We found Entertainment Specialists, Mike Amado, through word of mouth since we were not able to visit and meet with Mike before booking. From the very first phone call, we were sold! Mike was super responsive, and he provided suggestions when we needed some guidance and was extremely helpful through the whole process. With little direction we gave, we told Mike to do what he does best, and he did. From the lighting, to the ceremony and reception music, Mike exceeded our expectations. We put it in his hands to determine the timing of music and he was able to read the crowd to keep everyone on the dance floor. Everyone danced from the second the dance floor opened. Couldn't have picked a better DJ to run the show! Everyone behind the scenes at Entertainment Specialists was so easy to work with and always friendly and willing to help!

We gave her some song requests that we wanted to hear and let her take over the rest! She was amazing, and matched our music style perfect! She was very professional and navigated the whole nights details! As soon as we were done eating, we were on the dance floor the whole night. I didn’t even take 1 break!! It was tough to because the music kept flowing and I couldn’t stop my feet! We highly recommend Emilita for your next wedding!!

Not only did he have a great reputation and was highly experienced he was down to earth and very personable. He made the whole planning process very easy for my husband and I and his whole team was great. On the day of the wedding multiple guests came up to me to tell me they loved all the song choices and overall vibe of the music during our reception. We had a day wedding and wanted to make sure everyone was dancing and having a good time. Mike made sure of that and he helped make our wedding day one to remember!

We had Mike Amado for our DJ for our 12/28 wedding and I couldn't be happier! He truly created the wedding of our dreams-- everyone on the dance floor!

Mike instantly figured out the crowd and made the music that everyone would dance to. He included every guest request we sent him, a mashable YouTube song that I wanted, special entrance music for our HUGE bridal party. the specialty ending dances and even an awesoe Father/Daughter dance surprise. He also worked with one of my bridesmaids who we wanted to sing at our wedding. I am still in awe of how awesome Mike was. We heard it from alot of Boston hotel vendors to have Mike and he truly is the very best.

His uplighting really transformed the room. It was perfect and we loved it.

We had Mike Amado for our DJ for our 12/28 wedding and I couldn't be happier! He truly created the wedding of our dreams-- everyone on the dance floor!

Mike instantly figured out the crowd and made the music that everyone would dance to. He included every guest request we sent him, a mashable YouTube song that I wanted, special entrance music for our HUGE bridal party. the specialty ending dances and even an awesoe Father/Daughter dance surprise. He also worked with one of my bridesmaids who we wanted to sing at our wedding. I am still in awe of how awesome Mike was. We heard it from alot of Boston hotel vendors to have Mike and he truly is the very best.

His uplighting really transformed the room. It was perfect and we loved it.

If you want peace of mind, hire the Entertainment Specialists. We had a great time and we were able to work with Mike Amado on every nuance building up to the day. We stressed out about many things but music/lighting/video was not one of them. He was even able to accommodate our request for Brazilian music to keep the party going for the Brazil side of the family.

We had a great time and all our guests complimented us on how fun the reception was - we danced the whole night. So, if you like to feel stressed out, if you enjoy not knowing whether your DJ will flake out at the last minute and if you look forward to explaining to your guests that your DJ didn't have the awareness/expertise to feel the energy of a room, then hire someone else. If you want one less thing to stress over when planning your wedding/event hire the Entertainment Specialists you, won't regret it.

Entertainment Specialists were great to work with! I worked with Mike Amado when I first decided to use ES and he was great. He told me 3 DJ's that were his top 3 and helped me pick from there. We chose to have Emelita DJ our wedding and she was amazing! She was really easy to work with and gave my husband and I great ideas to use at the wedding. My side is all Portuguese so I gave her a list of Portuguese songs to incorporate and she did an outstanding job. Not only did I get a great DJ from SP but I also rented a photobooth for the night. IT WAS A HIT! Not only did our guests enjoy it, but we also were given a scrapbook of all the photos that were taken along with a DVD of all the photos. It was great! I would recommend their services to anyone. Thank you Entertainment Specialists (especially Emelita!!)

Mike Amado was the DJ for our wedding in October at Belle Mer in Newport and he did an AMAZING job! Throughout the whole planning process he was responsive and professional, and made helpful suggestions based on his experience. I felt he had competitive prices, and it was well worth it for the value he provided. Our guests were on the dance floor all night long and had an absolute blast! I'm still getting compliments for how much fun the DJ was. I would highly recommend Mike and Entertainment Specialists for any wedding or event- you'll be in great hands!

We are a long distance couple from Michigan, so we had to plan our entire meeting based upon the recommendation of the wedding coordinator at the Quincy Marriott. Emelita Deiulio was highly recommended and we couldn't be happier. We had a few e-mails back and forth and met with her 3 days prior to the wedding. She is a total professional. She did everything we asked and more. The guests danced all night and that was our goal. We wanted our wedding to be fun and it was. I would recommend Emelita to everyone for any occasion. I know the word is overused but she was totally AWESOME.

I cannot say enough about John Zucco! Everyone the entire night was commenting on how great John was. He kept the party going and everyone was on the dance floor non-stop! He was really flexible about meeting us before the wedding and took the time to understand what we wanted. John was a pleasure to work with and was always responsive and easy to talk to. He was the one vendor I knew I did not have to manage or worry about at all. If you book John, you will not be disappointed!

I wanted to start by saying that RON FURR is hands down the BEST DJ!! I worked for PwC and was at their annual Christmas party several years ago, at which Ron was the DJ, which I knew he had to be good in order to be the main DJ at a huge corporate party. Ron magically had everyone, all ages, backgrounds, etc, on the dance floor the whole night including myself dancing to every song he played. Now let me say I am a HUGE music fan so when it came down to picking a DJ, I took this very seriously. I researched all local DJ's, NYC Dj's, live bands, etc and narrowed down my selection. I then called over 40 DJ's and asked them some important questions to get a feel for their style, or what they would do in certain situations(they all probably thought I was insane and rightly so), "what would you play in a sequence with this song", "I have a very wide range of guests of all ages how can we keep them on the dance floor all night long", "I am going to have fireworks at the wedding, what kind of ideas do you have that we can play for the guests so they go out and enjoy the fireworks in a memorable way, then how can we get them back on the dancefloor after?" Some DJ's I knew just weren't going to work for me, others had ok answers but very typical, you can tell they were cookie cutter and have the same playlist for most weddings, RON however, impressed me the most and I felt like him and I just meshed. He had all these cool ideas on how to keep people dancing all night, how to mix music together, etc. All my guests danced the entire night, in fact, they even started dancing during dinner because the music was so good people wanted to get out there and have fun. My older guests raved about how they had not danced that much in years and younger guests about how it was the most fun wedding they have ever been to, that every time they went to get a drink from the bar they couldn't because another amazing song came on and they never wanted to leave the dance floor!!

DJ John Zucco is absolutely the best. He was DJ and MC for my wedding at the Omni Parker House in downtown Boston. I never met someone so passionate and dedicated. John has so much experience and has done so many gigs, weddings, parties, etc... and that can get very repetitive. However, John made me feel special, like no one else's party was more important than mine. It was a true pleasure getting to know John through the wedding preparations. He is a genuine and trust-worthy person. I highly recommend and can tell you that your expectations will be sincerely exceeded.

He also did our lighting for us - I HIGHLY recommend this! Thank you Mike!!

We knew long before our wedding that we wanted to have The World Premiere Band - you just need to see them once to know what I mean. We had seen them at The Charlie Horse and a wedding at Lakeview Pavilion in Foxboro, MA and all I could hear was the band and people dancing/singing - for their entire set!!! Even when the band took a 10 minute break - they just had got the crowd going so much that people just kept dancing to the background music until they returned! This was no different at my wedding - my guests all commented that my wedding is the only wedding that they have ever been to where all of the guests were on the dance floor BEFORE dinner! The World Premiere Band is amazing - they made the whole wedding! What a great memory to have had them there!

We had DJ Mike Amado for our wedding ceremony and reception. Mike helped us coordinate and plan our ceremony music which came out beautiful. He also did an amazing job getting our guests on the dance floor and keeping them there all night. In all of our reception photos, everyone is dancing and having a blast.

We also rented a photo booth through Entertainment Specialists which was a huge hit. People enjoyed the props and were in and out of the booth all night. We loved the scrapbook that the photo booth attendant made which included messages from our guests next to their photo strips. In addition to the one in the book, they also got a personalized strip to take home.

We would recommend using Entertainment Specialists for your wedding, especially DJ Mike!

We booked Mike Amado as our DJ because he is just the best out there. He was so great to work with. He kept our guests on the dance floor the entire night. Everyone commented on how amazing our DJ was. We also had ES provide our lighting for the night which really sets the mood.

We used Mike Amado as our wedding DJ, and we couldn't have been happier! There was not one moment when our guests weren't on the dance floor. Mike knew how to keep the crowd moving, but he also took great care to honor all of my and my husband's requests and family traditions. We went over every last song choice and all of the bridal party's name pronunciations during our wrap-up meeting two weeks before the wedding, but the day of he still took the time to go over the names once more with each member of the bridal party just before he announced us (this, in particular, really impressed our families). His energy and ability to read the crowd gave our wedding the fun party atmosphere we had hoped for, while still engaging all generations. Mike also provided uplighting for the room, and we were absolutely blown away. The color was so rich and really transformed the space, giving it exactly the mood and feel we wanted. Thanks, Mike, for helping to make our day so special!

We had Ben Goodman for a DJ at our wedding, and he was great. He was extremely responsive to our needs and very accommodating to our eclectic wishlist. Then when it was time to get on the floor, he got everyone moving and we all had a great, great time. Thanks, Ben!

We had seen the entertainment specialists at my cousins wedding a few years before our own, so when we were picking out our DJ it was an easy decision. They are the best in the area! You can't go wrong with these guys and if your having trouble picking out a song, have no fear they can help you out easy!

DJ Vic made our wedding a success! From our first conversation 9 months before the wedding I knew I was working with a professional. (Which helped my stress level as the wedding neared) Weeks before he took the time to review the flow of the evening and asked the right questions to ensure every detail was being taken care of. Then during the big event, he was there from the beginning to the end. I looked around at one point and the there was not a person sitting down because everyone was on the dance floor! Thanks DJ Vic!

My husband and I agree that one of our best wedding decisions was hiring DJ Charles Mercer. His professionalism, his patience and his outstanding personality were a great help to us while we planned our wedding. DJ Charles met with us twice prior to our wedding on 9/24. He spent a lot of time with us, explaining how the day would unroll, etc. It was very helpful that he had already done a wedding or two at our wedding site. On the day of our wedding, DJ Charles did an AWESOME job of moving the night along. He also did a fabulous job choosing music for both the dinner portion of the evening and then the dancing portion. He is a true professional; he loves being a DJ and this shows in his work. My whole family commented on the great job that he did! I highly recommend him without any hesitation!!

We couldn't have been more pleased with this company's services. They had a lot of DJ options and worked with us to find the perfect fit. We went with Joe Mazza who has a classic style and does not buy into the schitck that a lot of other wedding DJ's have - no chicken dance or dumb props! All of the music was chosen by us or our guests, and everyone had a great time on the dance floor!

My wife and I were married on July 17, 2011 and were lucky enough to hire Entertainment Specialists to perform ceremony music and have DJ Charles Mercer for the reception. We planned the wedding from Chicago and after only a few phone calls we were comfortable with everything and were extremely satisfied with how everything came together.

The ceremony music was wonderful and the trio we hired had no problem playing any of the music we requested. They were on time, courteous and were very very easy to work with.

With DJ Charles Mercer, we also asked for LED uplighting and were able to get the perfect color we wanted for the venue. We informed DJ Charles that we had a lot of guests who were in their twenties really liked to dance and the most important thing was having the dance floor packed. He blew our expectations out of the water and had everyone from our college friends to grandparents all dancing at the same time and there was never a moment where there weren't people dancing and having a great time. For the end of the night, we asked DJ Charles to play a set list of songs that were important to our friends including our college's fight song and DJ Charles didn't miss a beat. He played everything perfectly and was even able to play music for a garter toss last minute after we originally wedding going to include one.

Honestly, Entertainment Specialists was great and everyone we worked with was VERY professional. DJ Charles took the time to make sure he pronounced everyone's names correctly and has a GREAT DJ voice that just gets everyone in the mood for a reception. My wife and I can't say enough great stuff about Entertainment Specialists and we will definitely use them again for any event were hosting on the East Coast.

Quick story, we had a random guest at our wedding who wanted to make a toast and managed to get a microphone from a venue server. Right as I noticed what was about to happen, I flashed a look to DJ Charles and he instantly knew not to turn up the volume on the mike and acted super quick to handle the situation. He acted very professionally and didn't forget whose day it was. He brought his "A" game but really, after reading the other reviews, Entertainment Specialists must always bring the "A" game.

Thank you for making our event great!

He had met with us about three or four times before the wedding and everything was perfectly planned and carried out! He had the songs we wanted, he had fabulous arrangements and the way he cut and put together different music was more than impressive! The dance floor was full ALL night! My guests were commenting to me on how good the music was!

I would highly recommend Victor Barruzza of Entertainment Specialists to DJ any event. After only meeting with him once, Victor was able to pinpoint our likes and dislikes when it comes to music. It was like he knew what was playing on our iPods! He doesn't do any hokie wedding games or songs unless you ask him to, and he's more than happy to hide in the corner. He was a great leader when it came to announcing the speeches, cake cutting and bouquet toss. He made an intelligent decision when it came to bumping up our "last song" after he noticed a lot of people leaving early. He did everything we asked of him (and more) and all for a great price!

Entertainment Specialists were contracted by our venue to provide the DJ for our wedding reception. The process was easy from the get-go: perusing the DJs' profiles and selecting our favorites were simple. Emelita was responsive and professional in every communication. She met with us before the event and made sure she understood what sort of a reception we had in mind, then expertly read the crowd to keep our reception fun to the last minute!
Our only - and fairly minor - complaint was that despite the regularity of same-sex weddings in this area, all of the forms were divided into "bride" and "groom" sections, which made filling them out a bit awkward. The forms are really behind the times for a company (and DJ) who are otherwise great!

We had a fantastic experience with Entertainment Specialists. They provided a DJ (Mike Amado--amazing MC and terrific DJ), as well as a ukulele/guitar player (Tommy Sheehan) for our ceremony, who was great. Would highly recommend these guys--true professionals, not cheesy with the MC-ing, and experienced DJ's who understand how to cater to the vibe of the party you're having. Mike Amado was very easy to work with and put us (the bride and groom) first--met with us in NYC (even though our wedding was in Boston), got to know us as a couple and the style of our wedding, and got every single person at our 225 person wedding on the dance floor...what more could you ask for in a wedding DJ? He also came highly recommended from our wedding planner at the Mandarin Oriental (incredible venue--can't say enough about our experience there either), so he is well known in the industry, and highly reliable.

Mike Amado was very easy to work with and put us (the bride and groom) first--met with us in NYC (even though our wedding was in Boston), got to know us as a couple and the style of our wedding, and got every single person at our 225 person wedding on the dance floor...what more could you ask for in a wedding DJ? He also came highly recommended from our wedding planner at the Mandarin Oriental (incredible venue--can't say enough about our experience there either), so he is well known in the industry, and highly reliable.

I loved working with DJ Steve Fortes! He was so responsive and kind, and had the best music selection ever. The guests at my wedding were dancing THE ENTIRE TIME, and there was a big difference in demographics! I would absolutely recommend Steve and Entertainment Specialists to anyone in need of a high quality DJ.

We hired Derek Holt for our wedding and he was an amazing DJ. He played all the songs we asked for (even down to the song for the cake cutting) and kept the party going. The dance floor was packed from when the dinner was cleared until the wedding was over! I was exhausted but had the night of my life! My only advice is to make sure you walk through everything in advance one last time if you're really particular about things, there were a few minor hiccups in the order and names but nothing that made a real difference or that anyone even noticed. In general he was an amazing dj, responsive to requests, really easy to get along with, and knew how to keep the party going!

Victor Barruzza really was amazing! We had a new years eve wedding and everyone came to party... nobody left disappointed! We gave the DJ some flexibility and put our trust in his ability to read the crowd, and he absolutely nailed it! He knew what we liked, what we wanted, what we didn't want, and he just observed what the dance floor was feeling the most and he took the party till 1:00 a.m., at which point people were asking him to stay and continue! (too bad the venue wouldn't allow it)
We debated between a band or DJ, and have been to many weddings with great bands (as well as mediocre to poor ones), and after using Victor Barruzza, we spent our honeymoon raving about him and agreeing that we certainly would not have changed a thing - THANK YOU VICTOR!

We had Victor B. as our DJ. He was wonderful! Victor played the exact songs we asked for, and had everything the way we wanted. He was very professional, kind, and has a great sense of humor. He checked with us throughout the wedding to see if we had any requests or wanted anything more--he was so attentive. We met originally with Mike, who heads the company, and you will not book another company after talking to him. He's been in the business so long and can cater to whatever type of music you need!

We used Victor Barruzza. Victor was AWESOME! I have known Victor for years and have worked many weddings with him and decided to book him for my own wedding. I have to say I was probably more of a laid back bride with him because I knew he would do a great job. We only met/spoke once a couple of weeks before the wedding to go over our music choices, must play/do not play list and our introductions and timeline. I left the meeting feeling confident that Victor would do exactly what we wanted. The day of Victor was early and eager to get the party started. He did an amazing job with everything we threw at him and he kept our dance floor packed all night long. We could not be happier with him and got many compliments on his music choices. He really made our wedding what it was. I highly highly recommend him

World Premier Band is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They made our wedding! All we wanted was for our guests to have a great night out and WPB definitely made that happen. In the middle of our reception, I looked around and was thrilled to see that no one was sitting in their seats. Even those guests that never dance made at least a trip or 2 up to the dance floor at our wedding. And if you don't like to dance, they are a show themselves and you can't help but enjoy yourself. At the last minute I changed my mind about the entrance songs so I brought a CD with us because I didn't think the band knew the 2 songs and Lucas (the lead singer) told me he'd see what he could do and when we were introduced the band played the songs! Looking at our pictures you can see what a great time everyone had. Even my husband's 93 year old grandmother spent half the night dancing! They also did a great job mixing oldies and contemporary music to satisfy the various ages at the wedding. The band is 5 guys: Lucas, Jiggy, Quattro, CC Biggs & Sweet Pea. And they are amazing. During their break instead of being in a dressing room they actually came out and talked to the guests, who loved it! I can't say enough about these guys, they are just amazing and have amazing talent and a great energy. Hiring them pretty much guarantees a successful event!

I don't know about the other DJ's but I was really happy with her. The way that she does the garter/ bouquet toss was awesome and when we gave away the center pieces it was great. We even managed to get some of the "people who don't dance" out on the floor. :)

This company has many different MC's and i worked with John Zucco. He was very nice and professional. My only complaint with him is that at our 2 week meeting, we discussed the songs i wanted played, and he went and downloaded all the ones he didnt have. Our first dance song was From This Moment On, and the first part of it with the dialog was supposed to be taken out. But he never did. No one knew it was supposed to be taken out, but i think it would have been better without it. Other than that he was wonderful.

We got to choose what music we wanted for every part of the evening. We choose the announcements, and got to make a special moment for My husbands Grandparents who were Celebrating their 65 th wedding anniversery. He was not only a great Entertainer, he was a great dancer too. He came out onto the dance floor and showed everyone how to do some of the dances. I already Recommended him too a couple who used Ron as a DJ for their wedding. I would reccommend to everyone A++++.

Entertainment specialists was the company my venue package included, with that I didn't need to search. Although this company provides many choices in experienced DJ's to bands. I choose one of the top rated DJ's from their website: Ron Furr. He was excellent! He knew how to keep the party going! The only trouble was flexibility in meeting time and contacting him, he prefers phone interviews and not to meet until a couple weeks before the wedding. Which was frustrating for a bride who is well organized and on top of things! Also this did lead to some mishaps at the wedding, such as playing the wrong cake song. But overall the guest never knew and everyone enjoyed themselves, also a friend of ours who DJ's wanted to know if we did the play list. But we did not I left it open to Ron Furr (except for the specific songs for dances, cake, etc) and his choices made all our guest enjoy their time at our wedding!!

We were his first off site ceremony and reception package he did and he did it seemlessly! The ceremony was perfect and he kept everyone at the reception dancing all night long! No cheesy MC stuff, just great announcing and perflect between songs and musical genres. I'd recommend Victor to ANYONE, he was a GREAT DJ!

We used Entertainment Specialists to get DJ Mike Amado, who came highly recommended. Our 2 meetings with him went really well, and we discussed a lot of what we wanted with him - a lot of dancing, and a few specialized requests. He helped us iron out the schedule, too, alternating dancing and courses. A few weeks before the wedding I let him know what we wanted for the special dances, and about a week before the wedding I sent him a list of songs we'd liked to hear.

He did the music during the ceremony, and that went of without a hitch. During the reception, there were a few hiccups. He didn't play the version of a song I wanted for the dance with my father - he said he couldn't find the version, but I'd brought a copy of the version if he'd only mentioned it. He played one song that was reserved for another event later in the night, but quickly fixed it when we mentioned it to him. And he didn't play many of the songs I'd sent him - it may have been too late, but he hadn't said that earlier.

On the other hand, we told him that we wanted everyone to dance the night away, and they did! The floor was full from the moment we invited them onto the dance floor and he even played a few extra songs at the end, even the venue wanted him to end a little earlier. People really liked the energy of the songs he chose.

I used Entertainment Spacialist and wish I had not used them because it was a bad experience. I left messages for Toni Bianco who is the person in charge of the DJ and she never got back to me about the dance floor lights. I cannot believe after paying so much money to this company they decide not to return the clients phone calls. After I requested for the music I wanted, I ended up getting other music I did not wanted and had to tell the DJ again and again to change the music or songs. I cannot believe my wedding music was bad because people were not dancing and I had to tell him to get the crowd on the dance floor. I had requested a Hispanic DJ to play Spanish music and I was give Edwin Pabon. He had another DJ playing the music when he was the one who was supposed to be the DJ. What a horrible experience on my wedding night. I was lucky that I had a great attitute to be on top of the DJ in telling him what to play. I cannot believe they did not listen to my music pick list and what not to play. I told them not to play gasolina and that is the first thing he play I could not blieve it so I ran to the stage and told him to change that crap right away. Hopefully people will make the right choices when picking their DJ for their special day. Everyone complained to me about the DJ after the night was over, they could not believe that he was a professional.

Entertainment Specialists, specifically Toni Bianco, was recommended to me by the State Room. Perhaps this was a fluke as all of the other State Room preferred vendors were excellent, but Entertainment Specialists were the absolute worst vendor I dealt with during the entire wedding process. I wasted 2 months with Toni Bianco, looking for a band within our admittedly tight budget. It took 2 months because she would take FOREVER to respond to emails and phone calls. When we finally found a band that we liked within our budget and we thought were close to signing a contract, it took her ONE MONTH to tell us that the bandleader was thinking about getting married on our same wedding day and she offered us a horrible and completely different band to consider. Her excuse was that she had been spending the month trying to convice the bandleader to change his wedding day and didn't get a chance to update us. Sure, mmhmm, not buying that bullshit. Totally unprofessional and dishonest. HUGE WASTE OF TIME. Fortunately went with Murray Hill Talent who was responsive and professional and provided great music.

Her excuse was that she had been spending the month trying to convice the bandleader to change his wedding day and didn't get a chance to update us. Sure, mmhmm, not buying that bullshit. Totally unprofessional and dishonest. HUGE WASTE OF TIME. Fortunately went with Murray Hill Talent who was responsive and professional and provided great music. Read less
