I cannot say enough amazing things about Friendly Entertainment!
From the quick responses to my random middle of the night emails, to the simple and easy to figure out website where I could add and remove "must plays" and "do not plays" up until the week of the wedding, Frank and Simmone were the best choice I could have made and I am so happy to have found them!
The music never stopped flowing. The transitions between songs were smooth. They really caught my musical vibes and played everything I loved and nothing I didn't.
My guests danced all night long! It was even hard for me to get pulled away from the dance floor, and I'm not much of a dancer, so that is really saying something!

Thank you Frank & Simmone! I can't wait to use your service again, everything was perfect!

Frank from Friendly Entertainment was awesome. We really had no idea where to start when finding a DJ but my parents insisted we hire one for our 65 guest wedding. My wife found Friendly Entertainment online and we went for it. Frank talked with us a few times before the wedding. We left out most of the wedding traditions; ours was a simple ceremony followed by a cocktail hour and tapas style dinner. We mostly wanted a DJ who could keep the dance party going all night. Frank was great. He had everyone from my four year old nephew to our guests in their 70s dancing. Prior to the wedding we had given Frank a very short list of must play songs, a few do not play under any circumstances, and a list of about 15 songs we really love to dance to. From this list he was able to curate a three hour dance party. There was maybe one song that fell flat all night, but Frank responded quickly and got everyone dancing again in by the next song. He played requests made by the guests and did a great job of reading the crowd and playing songs they would like.
In addition to the dance party, Frank really helped to keep our timeline flowing. He only made the announcements we had talked about ahead of time and was not flashy or attention seeking. I had no idea how quickly time would go by during the wedding and it was great to have a professional to help move things along. We had two planned events, toasts and a first dance. When it was time for each according to the timeline we laid out ahead of time, Frank made the appropriate announcements to get everyone's attention. We didn't have champagne for the toasts so Frank let the guests know toasts were coming and they should visit the bar if they wanted to raise their glass. I hadn't even thought to suggest this so I was glad Frank was there and knew to do so.
Overall, Frank was professional, kept the dance party flowing, and helped us execute our vision for the night. I would recommend him to my closest friends.

We got married this past weekend at our family's farm located in northern Baltimore County. When we initially contacted Friendly Entertainment we were interested in having DJ Frank because he had played at our friends wedding and was outstanding in every way. When we found that Frank was already booked the day of our wedding, Simmone (the company's manager suggested we talk with DJ Dennis Theriault. After meeting with Dennis and getting to know his style and approach we felt confident that he would be a great match for us. Our gut feeling was spot on because Dennis helped to make our wedding day run really smooth, he kept the energy level consistent with our style and he helped to coordinate the day's event and made sure we had time to enjoy our party. Thanks to Dennis and everyone at Friendly Entertainment! You guys made our wedding day completely stress free and so much fun!

Absolutely, without a doubt, 100% book Frank from Friendly Entertainment for your wedding! Working with Frank was a blast! He made us feel extremely comfortable by meeting with us a week before the wedding to go through the wedding timeline minute by minute, allowing us to ask any questions we needed, and taking care of any other details himself that we wouldn't want to stress about. We could tell Frank had done this hundreds of times - we gave him a lot of flexibility with what he played during less important parts of the wedding (like cake cutting), and everything flowed perfectly and flawlessly. Frank felt like a good friend immediately (probably where the name of the business comes from!), as he assured us many times that he would take care of us and make everything go easily. He was spot on - Frank took care of us the entire night, and our guests had a BLAST. The dance floor was full right up until the end of the wedding, and people were still having fun so they rushed right to the after-party. So many people came up to us to let us know they had so much fun! Aside from even his normal DJ/MC duties, Frank gets along so well with the vendors he works with. He was good friends with our photographer, as well as our wedding coordinator. That means a lot, as the chemistry of the people working your wedding is crucial. If we ever renew our vows or have another event we will DEFINITELY be booking Frank! Thanks so much Frank, we are eternally grateful!

We hired DJ Dennis with Friendly Entertainment because he was super friendly and open to all of our ideas and at the same time made suggestions that really helped us in planning our wedding and reception. The day of our wedding he worked closely with all of our vendors to insure that everything ran smooth without any awkward moments and kept the energy level consistent with our personalities. When we initially contacted Friendly Entertainment we received a quick and very nice response from Simmone, the director of operations. We couldn't have had a better experience and working with DJ Dennis helped make our big day the most incredible day of our lives! Thanks to everyone at Friendly Entertainment!

DJ Frank was one of the best values we felt we got in the wedding process- he was so incredibly accommodating and just an overall pleasure to work with. One of my friends used his services for her wedding and, also, our wedding coordinator strongly recommended him to us- and boy are we glad they did! Our planning session was fun, his wife (who we communicated with for questions) was so kind and helpful, and on the big day- I had nothing to worry about. The dance floor was packed the entire night and everything sounded amazing. he was extremely laid back and professional- which is key for the stress of the planning process and the wedding day! He was not overly flashy, as to take away from us as the newlyweds, and was the perfect compliment to everything else we had at the wedding. Couples should not pass this one up!

Frank is the ultimate professional.
Was never missing from the DJ Table/Booth.
Responsive to what the crowd wanted, kept the show moving the whole time.
Played things we specifically requested, made announcements.

Frank is honestly the best Event DJ I have ever encountered.
His gear is professional, his skill is amazing at crossfading/mixing song transitions and he's a joy to work with on a personal level.

Frank and his wife Simmone were amazing. They were incredibly accommodating. We had a tricky venue that was very spread out and people were all over the house. Frank did a great job of getting the RIGHT music in each part of the house (upbeat on the dance floor, more chilled out in the dining/lounge areas). He read the room well and didn't try to force any kind of music on people when they weren't ready (not pulling out the heavy dance music during cocktail hour, for example).

My wife and I were overjoyed to have worked with Friendly Entertainment and would recommend them to anyone.
