Working with DJ Dan and his team at our Mount Washington wedding was an absolute pleasure. To say we had a blast does not do his performance justice! Entertain New England not only provided our music, ceremony through reception, but hosted our crazy fun photo booth AND Dan shared his balloon art talent with my 8 year old daughter! He was a hit all the way around and his team was professional and incredibly friendly! We would absolutely recommend this team to anyone looking to have a good time!

John was great from our first meeting up to our wedding day and beyond. Ultimately it came down to personality and comfort level with the DJ we were going to use. John sat down with us on our first meeting and we knew he was what we were looking for. He was able to read the spread of our guests and played a great mix to please everyone from cocktail hour up to the last dance.

His personality and organization mixed with his taste for the right music for the right crowd makes it easy for us to recommend him for any special event.

DJ John Dudley does not disappoint! He is a true professional and an absolutely great DJ. My husband and I selected him after reading other killer reviews and seeing some of the videos of other weddings he had done. We could not have been happier with this choice. Not only was John SUPER prompt and organized with his communications with us, he helped to keep everything in order on the big day and helped keep us on track with our timeline throughout the night. He played all the songs we wanted, was willing to stay for longer than expected, and even made sure that the bridal party was doing okay throughout the night. I could not have asked for a better wedding DJ - thank you for an amazing night, John!!

John did a great job of helping us organize the entire day. He talked with us multiple times about music selections and about reception flow so that our day went exactly as we had hoped. Our guests had a great time dancing to exactly the type of music we envisioned and, despite the summer heat, everyone had a blast well into the night.

John Dudley is an amazing DJ, MC, and all around great guy just as his ad says! He took the time to sit down with myself and my fiance and communicated very well before the wedding. He was laid back yet organized and made sure we had all our songs picked out for all the special moments during our weddding day. He allowed us to be as involved in picking songs as we wanted to, and i had a list for him which he played mixed with some of his own great suggestions as well. I can't say how happy we were with his services and i wouldn't hesitate to hire him in the future. His price was very reasonable too!

We were very happy with John at our wedding and would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. Prior to our wedding, John was very accommodating about when and where to schedule meetings. His wedding planning form was very thorough and covered all the details for our reception (bridal party introduction, special songs, type of music we like, what traditions we wanted to include/skip, the timeline, etc.). He reached out to the venue and our photographer to ensure that everyone was on the same page. The day of our wedding, John was nothing but professional. The music he played was great, and our guests had fun dancing the night away!

I cannot say enough about John! I made a lot of changes at 11pm the night before the wedding and he came threw! He even text me the day of to check in becausr he knew how nervous i was.
The entrance he helped me with was awesome he introduced my large wedding party of 11 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen perfectly. I was late to my reception and he was there to calm my nerves with a big smile!
We met twice and went over all the music we wanted and did not want. He was very patient with my crazy self!! I would 100% recommend John for DJ and lighting.

Also I must add I have a 7 year old who loves to dance. She was very happy with john and him taking all her requests!
We look forward to working with john in the future for other events!

I can't compliment John Dudley enough about his DJ services! He came recommended to me by multiple friends and knew I had to contact him. From the first email to our wedding day John was nothing but professional and an absolute ball to work with! He was so easy to work with- from the handy wedding planner, to quick emails, to helping us with our song selections, John made us feel like we had been friends with him for years!

John took time to really get to know us and that reflected in each song choice he selected for us! He made sure that what we wanted played was played and that we were having the time of our lives at our wedding! He has a great display and fun lights to really engage people!

I can't rave enough about John! He is a sure thing when it comes to events and weddings!

John has a great personality who belongs in the entertainment business. He will respond promptly to your questions and offers this very helpful wedding planner to organize all the songs and announcements where they belong. Some DJ's have this big shot attitude, you won't find that here. He has a warm hearted, fun and out going personality that everyone will get along with. He even put my daughter's favorite song on our playlist on his own and she felt completely special when he played it at our wedding for us. He will let you customize things the way you want them. Very flexible and not pushy one bit. He sent me a list with plenty of example songs when I was lost in finding something. He also offers uplighting or a photo slideshow. Little extra touches all in one place.

I think John is going far in the DJ business. If you want someone with the personality your guests are going to enjoy then go with DJ John Dudley. I can't find one reason not too!

The wedding day itself went off without any issues and all our guests had a great time dancing to all the song selections. Our venue was a theater so John was faced with some obstacles, but depsite this he managed to make our wedding perfect and extremely memorable.

John is a phenomenal DJ and an unrivaled Master of Ceremonies who moonlights as a benevolent, personable philanthropist.

In short: his musical transitions were seamless, his song choices were spot on, and he tirelessly entertained guest(s) well through the night. He is responsible for the amazingly intimate up lighting and the guest-favorite photo montage. I thought I had developed a personal bias, but guests are still calling me for his contact information.

Hope this helps and CONGRATS BRIDES+GROOMS!

After what felt like an exhaustive search--I seriously dragged my fiance to 3 or 4 wedding shows where we'd talk to dj's who we knew just were not the right fit for us--we thought we'd never find the perfect dj. All we wanted was someone professional and non-cheesey, within our pricerange who understood the type of reception we wanted. Finally, an acquaintance recommended John, and our problem was solved! We left our first meeting convinced that he was perfect. His attention to detail was excellent, and we felt that he truly listened to us and understood what we were looking for. He made us feel really comfortable, and we knew we were in great hands. John is extremely professional, and went out of his way to work with us so we'd have exactly the type of reception we wanted. John is such a nice and caring guy, and that truly came across in his work. He was so patient with me, and he always kept in touch as the planning went on. He was quite accommodating to our long requested song list (we had included a song request line on our rsvp's), and I can't think of a single song that he didn't play! He had our guests on the dance floor all night--exactly what we wanted. I must say, most dj's we talked to were not impressed with my love of Pearl Jam, but John truly seemed to embrace our choices! We received so many compliments from our guests on the music and how well it flowed from the cocktail hour, to dinner, to the dancing afterwards--my husband and I absolutely reccommend John to any of the brides and grooms out there in the Boston area searching for a fantastic dj!

From our first meeting, John was attentive to our concerns. I was impressed with how professional he was - he sent me a summary of our initial meeting, which included notes about our wants and even how we met - it proved he had the attention to detail we needed. His pricing was very competitive and with the inclusion of a few stellar upgrades (using his wireless microphone for our Ceremony), we decided to hire him. From that point, John continued to be nothing but prompt and professional - he made contact with me (bride/planner) every few months to ensure I had what I needed from him at that given point of the planning process. A month before the wedding, we had our final few meetings via email, due to my crazy work schedule. He shared his vast music library and had us complete a worksheet about how we wanted to be announced, when, if we were doing a cake cutting, etc. Since we only met face to face once, I was a little nervous what our wedding night dance party would end up like, but John delivered - our guests did not leave the dance floor until it was time to go home. He followed our worksheet to a "T" - said all the right things, played all the right music. Things of note that I really appreciated from John on our wedding day: He showed up with plenty of time to get set up, met our caterer, and even wrangled an unruly Ceremony musician when my fiance and I could not deal with it. He was dressed in a nice suit & tie, had great appearance & presence - something I think is very desirable in a focal point on your big day. Although we had asked not to take requests, when there was a lull in our dance party (due to my lame music choices), he showed flexibility and understanding of our main goal (for guests to dance & have fun) and played great music the rest of the night. The bottom line: John is extremely professional, a joy to work with, prompt, poised, and works hard to understand your wedding vision - and then ensuring it is realized! I highly recommend him.

From our first meeting, John was attentive to our concerns. I was impressed with how professional he was - he sent me a summary of our initial meeting, which included notes about our wants and even how we met - it proved he had the attention to detail we needed. His pricing was very competitive and with the inclusion of a few stellar upgrades (using his wireless microphone for our Ceremony), we decided to hire him. From that point, John continued to be nothing but prompt and professional - he made contact with me (bride/planner) every few months to ensure I had what I needed from him at that given point of the planning process. A month before the wedding, we had our final few meetings via email, due to my crazy work schedule. He shared his vast music library and had us complete a worksheet about how we wanted to be announced, when, if we were doing a cake cutting, etc. Since we only met face to face once, I was a little nervous what our wedding night dance party would end up like, but John delivered - our guests did not leave the dance floor until it was time to go home. He followed our worksheet to a "T" - said all the right things, played all the right music. Things of note that I really appreciated from John on our wedding day: He showed up with plenty of time to get set up, met our caterer, and even wrangled an unruly Ceremony musician when my fiance and I could not deal with it. He was dressed in a nice suit & tie, had great appearance & presence - something I think is very desirable in a focal point on your big day. Although we had asked not to take requests, when there was a lull in our dance party (due to my lame music choices), he showed flexibility and understanding of our main goal (for guests to dance & have fun) and played great music the rest of the night.

I would highly recommend DJ John Dudley. He was very professional, and made sure not only our request were met but also my guest. He made it a great night of fun and dancing for everyone. He had great suggestions, and what I loved most about him is that he communicated with the other venders on his own to make sure everything was on time and ran smoothly. He was very organized and great to work with!! I absolutly will hire him again for other events and would most absolutly refer him to anyone who wants to have a great time and a memorable day!!

John was amazing! From the first time we spoke on the phone thru the end of the event. He was nothing short of phenomenal.Friendly, courteous, reliable to a T, that when he was running late for our meeting a few days before the wedding and did not have my contact info on him, he had his wife call me to let me know, which was so appreciated! He had both my husband and I at ease from the start and delivered exactly what we had hoped for. I had wanted to have "different" or contemporary music playing for the bridal party and brides procession and the recession, that I really was not sure if it would work, and would translate. John assured me it would work and make it not only perfect but seemed effortless. John was recommended to me by a friend who is a wedding planner and I can not thank her enough for introducing us. Truly outstanding and a large part of why it was the most magical day of my life.

John was a major part of creating the exact vibe and ambiance we dreamed to have at our wedding. Before the event, he took the time to learn exactly what we were expecting and our musical tastes, and he did it in a way that caused my husband and I zero stress and minimal time. He asked precise questions that were easy for us to answer but apparently were very telling. We wanted dinner music that was laid back with blue grass and classic american folk, but we also wanted a raging dance party that lasted all night long. We got exactly that! We didn't know what to pick for an intro song or a cake cutting song, and he gave us a short list of absolutely perfect options that were so "us" and made it easy for us to make the choice. When it comes to dealing with a bride and groom, John really gets it--he's professional, kind, attentive, and easy to work with. If you want a DJ that plays music that is "you" to a T, and can also get every person old and young out on that dance floor, John is your go-to guy!

John Dudley is a true professional. He was always prompt when replying to phone calls and emails, he was very easy to work with, and a very friendly person. He played the music that we wanted, even when we didn't know exactly what song he had plenty of recommendations. Or if we gave him a mood we wanted he delivered the right music. He had all the details taken care of and the introductions of the wedding party were perfect. I cannot give DJ John Dudley a higher recommendation!

DJ John Dudley was extremely professional, friendly, and easy to work with from the get-go. I felt like he was making note of the type of people my husband and I are and thinking about our style, likes, etc. He was very responsive to our do's and don'ts. Most of all when I had last minute changes or awkward family situations he did not make me feel like I was an inconvenience. He was just happy to do his job, honored to have our business, and no request or situation was a problem. One of my bridesmaids was so impressed that she now booked him for her wedding : )

We had an outstanding experience with DJ Dan from Entertain New England. We would recommend him in a heart beat.

We had a tough crowd -- 100 adults of different ages + 20 kids. From the beginning, Dan provided creative ideas so we could keep everyone engaged. He supported our offbeat processional/recessional choices and encouraged us to have a good time,

During the actual wedding, he did an excellent job keeping the kids busy, so their parents could eat. Once the general dancing started, everyone was on the floor (for the entire time). It was remarkable.

Dan is fun, passionate and engaged in the success of our event. A total gem.

The dance floor was packed all night, which is what we were going for, and he worked in all of our requests seamlessly.

Working with DJ John was a pleasure. He was recommended to us by the events coordinator at the hotel. After quick email correspondence, we met in person with John and went over basic info about the wedding and general music preferences. John took the time time to learn about how we met and get a sense of us as a couple. We were confident with our choice after the meeting.
Closer to the wedding, John provided a form that was very detailed: names of family and wedding party, order of the ceremony and reception, play/do not play lists etc. After submitting the form, we had a conference call with John to go over the pronunciation of names and double check all the small things.
During the wedding, John was very flexible. He worked hard to get us an AV setup with football game and even though it didn't work out it was not for lack of trying. My husband and I were in a whirlwind during the whole thing, but when we finally sat to eat and wanted to hear a particular song, John was right there to play it. And throughout the night we heard songs by the artists we chose which was fun and comforting. We had a last minute change in who was being introduced to the reception and John picked up on it quickly and made it work.
I would definitely recommend John to my friends!
