We had the most amazing experience, DJ Chris Wright and his team made us feel as though were the most important wedding they have ever done. Everyone is still talking about our wedding and how much fun it was! We've already given out Cool Cat information to friends. Everything was wonderful and for that we say thank you!

We were looking for a very specific DJ company that could provide a modern dance/club vibe to our reception, and Cool Cat was the perfect choice. We had a destination wedding (at Longfellows in Saratoga Springs), so we had to do everything online/Skype which worked no problem. Cool Cat had a very helpful feature of taking online payments, including PayPal. Also on their site you can pick 10 "must play" songs, which is great if you want to hear something specific on your wedding day.

Our two-man team was Vince Jr and Paul, who did literally, a perfect job. They provided services for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our guest list was a modest 52 people, but the dance floor was filled for nearly the entire reception! Even at dinner, everyone (including Vince/Paul) were dancing in their seats. Needless to say the music was quite good.

Basically all of our guests came to us to compliment Vince and Paul; "Who are they?", "I must have them at my wedding, do they travel?", "I can't look away, they are so much fun to watch!"

Make sure you do the "best dancer...smartest...etc" game, I was in tears with laughter. Vince knows how to keep the party going, and Paul's dance moves are out of this world.

We could go on and on, but if you want a party, and are going with Cool Cat, ask for Vince Jr and Paul, you will not be disappointed, thanks guys!

We had a blast with Eric! Everyone has told us what a great time they had and how amazing everything was. It was great working with Eric and he had a tough job because my husband and I live on Long Island so trying to get together could have been difficult but we were able to talk on the phone and Skype. He was very good about getting to know us to make sure we had the best time possible. Just an all around positive experience. Highly recommended!
