5 stars! Amazing! As good as it gets!!!

We had DJ GNRS for our wedding party, and it was absolutely the rocking-est party I've ever been to, much less hosted. The DJ was such an important part of it all. We had a lot of requests that we communicated before hand over email, and a lot of songs I was super allergic to (I didn't want obvious stuff - no "YMCA", no "Celebrate Good Times", no "We Are Family" - just too overplayed!), and they really listened to our requests and added some really great dance tunes and it was just a fabulous experience.

We started out with an hour of music that would appeal to all generations, lots of 50's and 60's stuff, and I'll never forget watching my mom dance to Aretha Franklin "Sweet Baby" -- it's one of those songs you just can't sit still through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHVJU4Spe7c Watching her dance and let loose to this song is one of my happiest memories of the whole night!

Bonus: DJ GNRS is very nice and VERY good-looking and a bunch of my wedding guests inquired if he was single. Just sayin'!

DJ Jason Fito DJ'ed my wedding in 10/14. He literally played the best music ever. I loved every single song that he played! He truly made the night. He has this uncanny ability to feel the crowd and knows just the right songs to play to keep everyone on the dance floor all night long. He is truly the most talented DJ I have ever heard. And he is such a great guy too. He is very responsive which is good when you are in the stressful process of planning a wedding. My husband and I have received so many compliment from our friends and family about Jason's music--so many people have even told us our wedding was the best one they have ever been to!! And we credit a lot of that to Jason. Love him!!

We were married just a few weeks ago in NYC and had the pleasure of working with Jason of Generation Events to plan the music for our reception. From the beginning, Jason was an absolute pleasure to work with. DJ Nars was our actual DJ on the night of the event and couldn't have been any better. He had everyone, from children to grandparents out on the dance floor for nearly 3 hours straight and was able to adapt to our last minute "I think we do want a first dance" moment with ease. Would highly recommend Jason and DJ Nars again to anyone. They played all of the music we requested and truly made it a memorable night. The best!!!

One of the best wedding decisions we made was hiring generation events. Jason helped us coordinate the music so that it was a real party for our guests, dj, electric violinist , bongos, congas .... Jason is organized, nice, on top of his stuff!

All of our guests had a blast! DJ Shaun was our actual DJ and he rocked the house!

He introduced the speeches, followed the timeline and played every single song we wanted. Our guests danced nonstop and are still raving about how great he was!!!

Jason Fioto was so down to earth, easy going, and easy to work with! He DJ'd our wedding and we had a blast! He definitely knows how to throw a party. A little pricey to have him as the actual DJ, but it was worth every penny. He introduced my wedding party, followed the timeline and honored music requests the both we and our guests had. Our guests commented nonstop about how great he was!!!

We just got married in mid November 2012 and had the pleasure of working with Jason Fioto of Generation Events. He was recommended to us by Danielle at Kool Events who helped plan our event. Jason is extremely cool and was very accommodating as to what we were looking for, for our wedding day. We met twice before the wedding and were able to hammer out the details with ease. By the way, highly recommend getting the live percussionist as well, that added so much flavor to the party. I love house music and 80s, my wife likes hip hop, and of course we had to make everyone else happy, he blended everything perfectly. After the Hora, he went into the first dance set and I was thinking "these folks are not gonna sit down and eat"! Needless to say, the song selection, mixing and announcements were perfect. Everyone kept raving about the music. My Mom even danced until 1 AM! Thanks Jason for an amazing party. 4 thumbs up!!!!

Jason Fioto was the DJ at our wedding and he was fantastic. The crowd was up dancing the entire night! Well except during speeches and while eating of course, but he had such a perfect selection of music that got the guests right back up to the dance floor. He brought a drummer who circulated through the crowd and played bongos which the wedding guests absolutely loved! The music he played during the ceremony was perfect - exactly what I had asked for. I got so many compliments on the music at the wedding and have had some requests for his contact information from guests for their friends' weddings!

Jason Fioto at Generation Events was my top choice of DJ, as he had been so highly recommended to me by several people I trusted within the wedding industry. I was so happy when we were able to book him. Both my husband and I are both huge music people, so the DJ/music was extremely important to us, if not the most important element next to good food. From our first meeting, we could tell that Jason was awesome and just "got" it.

For our wedding, it was important tome that our guests were on the dance floor having a blast. Jason delivered....he kept the dance floor bumping all night, and the short moment there was a lull- he got everyone back out. My friends/guests were raving about the dancefloor afterwards.

Beyond that Jason looks and acts the part of a cool wedding DJ, far from the typical cheesy wedding DJ you may encounter. He also served as the MC for the evening, and he did great with that as well.

Jason met with us a couple times to make sure everything flowed smoothly with our cues, and to get our "must" and "must plays" locked in. Jason was all-around so cool and great to work with and really kept the dance floor packed all night! Jason Fioto has my enthusiastic two thumbs up!
