Mark was an absolutely amazing DJ. I believe that the DJ is the biggest, most important part of a wedding reception and Mark exceeded my expectations by far. He kept everyone dancing on the dance floor, kept everyone and everything on time from the dances to cutting the cake. Mark worked well with the vendors and made sure that my husband and I were happy and comfortable the entire time. Mark is an exceptional DJ and I would highly recommend him for any wedding reception. Thank you for being our DJ and making our reception so memorable to everyone!!

Mark was the DJ for our 30th high school reunion. Being that we graduated in 1983, we requested most of the music come from that era. He did an absolutely outstanding job! He had an extensive library of songs to get the crowd on the dance floor and singing along to songs from back in the day.

We would highly recommend Mark for any important function. He's professional and reliable.

Take some stress out of your wedding planning and stick with Jersey Sound for your entertainment. Mark took the time to meet with us, get the flavor of what we wanted, and had an excellent music selection. He was prompt, professional, and flexible - able to improvise and help create some of those unplanned special moments that make the day.

My daughter was married at Jacaranda Country Club in Venice Florida. Mark Giagrante from Jersey Sound was our DJ. From the moment of our first meeting, Mark was very professional. He has a wonderful personality and I knew he would be the perfect DJ for the wedding. Two very good friends of mine recommended him also. He was very prepared. He kept the wedding party and all of the guests on their feet. We had the best time dancing. He was great when he introduced the wedding party. Everyone still comments how fun the wedding was and how great the music and DJ was!! I would highly recommend Mark and would use him again (if my 2 boys ever get married!!)

I was very happy to have Mark DJ our wedding. Everyone had an amazing time, the music was perfect (he really took our tastes and transformed them into an awesome wedding soundtrack), and he even helped keep everything going smoothly, which I very much appreciated. He was an integral part of a beautiful, fun and memorable day and I am extremely grateful to him for doing such a fantastic job!

Mark was so easy going and nice to work with! He definitely played the perfect music and kept things moving flawlessly. I have to give it to him... I made a super last minute change and he was on top of it. When I say last minute I mean at the reception last minute. Thank you Mark for a great night. I'll recommend him to everyone!

Mark helped us out immeasurably...the whole process was rather stressful except for our DJ, Mark G. He made us feel comfortable, walked us through his plan, discussed options, let us know what we should or shouldn't do...in short, he was our coordinator. And a great kick-ass DJ!
I asked him to play some of "my music" and he did. he arrived wearing attire suited to our event....our beautiful wedding at Selby Gardens in Sarasota on March 15th 2010. The Ides of March may have not been a good day for Julius Caesar, but it was an Awesome day for us! And Mark was there every step of the way. When in Rome.....choose Mark!

Mark was the DJ at my sister's wedding. He is very professional, yet entertaining. EVERYONE was dancing and had a great time. His props were very fun as well. He was not the lowest price we received, but dollar for dollar he really was a bargain.

Mark was a great DJ. Everything he said he would do he did and then some. The music selection was perfect for every moment and he was the one that picked most of the songs we just had a select few. He has no problems taking request from people. The sound quality was perfect and we never had any issues with anything. We would definitely reccommend Mark for your special event.

We used Jersey Sound for our Wedding April 18th, 2009. I cant tell you enough how professional and friendly he was. He played a mix of current music and some classics that kept the party going. He was great at hosting the reception and did every thing we asked him too. We didnt have to worry about a thing. Great job Mark!!!

Mark did a great job coordinating our wedding and would highly recommend him to anyone in the area. He was very thorough and professional during the entire process. This was a destination wedding for us, and Mark made it easier than we could have hoped for. He arrived early and stayed late. He kept the reception lively and on-time which is huge when you have so much to squeeze in between dances, speeches, cake cutting, bouquet tosses, etc. Overall everything went off without a hitch, and we have Mark to thank for it.

Mark provided the entertainment for my Daughter Samantha's wedding this past Friday night here in Sarasota and what a job he did. My husband and I are transplants from South Jersey (we've been here about 6 years) and let me tell you we could well have been dancing in Cherry Hill, the music and entertainment was tremendous. We had about 75 guest and I can honestly say no one sat in their chairs all night. The right entertainment makes the party and Friday night was no exception? thanks Mark our Samantha was thrilled. I'm sure she'll drop you a beautiful note when she and Eric get back from Hawaii. Thank You!

We found Jersey Sound online while planning our Anna Maria, FL wedding from Cincinnati, OH. Mark allowed us to provide all the songs we did & did not want played. Our guests had an awesome time at the reception, & many have said that it was the BEST wedding reception music they had ever encountered. The music meant a lot to us, because we wanted it to reflect our style, instead of using the normal wedding music. I would recommend Jersey Sound to anyone in the area!

Mark knows his stuff and he collaborates with his clients and doesn't dictate what needs to happen. We had a very unique "split" wedding set up (private ceremony with a few people for dinner and a big party with many others for drinks and dancing an hour later). He made sure the tone and excitement was appropriate throughout. He sensed the right kind of music for everyone and kept things going for hours. Jersey Sound and Entertainment is the only way to go!

Our DJ was okay. He kept everyone dancing..the only issue that we had was he wouldn't play songs when people came up and asked him to play a song. We had to ask him repeatedly to play songs. It was very annoying.

Jersey Sound and Entertainment DJ's responded with the following comments:

Although I am very open to taking requests from guests, sometimes playing those requests does not fit with the flow of the wedding. The goal of the DJ and usually of the bride and groom is to keep people dancing. As I recall there was one or two people that were making requests that were on the "do not play list" that was supplied to me by the bride and groom. As the evaluator noted in their comments, people danced the whole night which I am not sure would have happened had a played some of the requested songs.
