Before we begin, we would just like to mention that we have an amazing website that really showcases what we're all about. If you want to get a great feel for Local Motion Entertainment, including bios on each of our DJs, visit our website then come back and check out the incredible reviews our awesome Brides and Grooms have left us!!

We at Local Motion Entertainment, local Connecticut DJ business have become known for our tasteful, boutique-inspired style that redefines wedding entertainment as you know it. We pride ourselves on being a close-knit team of only 5 DJs- each extremely talented, passionate, and knowledgable about every genre of music along with the latest and best sound equipment available, and skilled in the art of deejaying and emceeing. We understand that in this day and age, a cheesy wedding DJ using played-out tactics is not what our brides and grooms are looking for. We break away from that mold by going deeper, not relying on those same old songs you hear at every wedding, instead placing a huge emphasis on reading the crowd and feeding off the energy of your guests, all the while keeping to the style and feel of the music YOU want to have playing at your celebration.

From the start of your wedding ceremony to the last encore song of the night and everything in between, we are obsessed with bringing your vision of the perfect wedding to life. After all, you deserve it- you're going to be celebrating your love for one another surrounded by your closest friends and family. Let us have the honor to host this incredibly important day for you, as you join your two lives together.

All of us at LME have been in your shoes and know just how overwhelming and stressful planning a wedding can be. Allow us to guide you through the planning process. Pick our brains- let us put our many years of experience to work for you so you can just show up the day of your wedding, be in the moment and eat, drink and dance the night away! Our reputation is built on outstanding attention to detail and a focus on exceeding expectations. We have all of the experience you’re looking for. But even better than that, we absolutely love what we do. We customize our music to fit your taste, your guests, and the mood of your wedding. Read less

Geoff from local motion was amazing! From the moment we met Geoff we knew that he would keep the energy up at our wedding and play great music to get the crowd dancing! He did not disapoint! Geoff played great music during the ceremony and cocktail hour.
During the party after introductions Geoff made sure to keep the energy alive in the room! He played great songs to keep people from all ages on the dance floor. Geoff also would talk to us, the bride and groom, between each set to let us know what was coming up next! We found that really helpful as we always knew what was going on and what he was thinking for music next!
Geoff had so much energy and music that we even blew a fuse at one point! But Geoff was quick at getting the music back up and running and it was as if the music never went out!
Geoff and his wife Grace were professional, fun, accommodating and the best DJ we could have ever asked for the wedding! We recommend Geoff for anyone looking to have a great time on their wedding day!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Local Motion. Geoff was great! The guests from our wedding continue to tell me how great our DJ was at the wedding and how much fun they had! He played many songs we had requested and continued to read the crowd as the night went on to appeal to their taste, it was fantastic. He also coordinated with me for a special father-daughter dance, leaving my father in tears. You will not be disappointed using Local Motion and particularly, Geoff!

Geoff and Grace were absolutely amazing!!! We connected with Geoff right from the start. They knew our style and expectations for a great dance party and made our dreams come true. Aside from those who couldn't keep up on the dance floor, there was SO much great energy all thanks to their work and ability to read the crowd. Easy to connect with, easy going the day of, followed through with our requests even as they came in the moment. We LOVED them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great, personable, responsible DJ. Added uplighting at our final meeting and were so glad we did! The party was off the hook!! THANK YOU GEOFF & GRACE!!

Geoff of Local Motion came highly recommended to us by our venue, the Inn at Longshore. After a ton of DJ research, Geoff was the first person we found who who struck the perfect balance of personality and professionalism.

Geoff and his wife Grace are the nicest people in the world, but they also know how to run a business. Every correspondence was extremely thoughtful, thorough, and prompt. Since we were based in NYC, we had our first meeting with Geoff via Skype--and though Skype is inherently awkward, we knew he was our guy. He totally understood the flow of our wedding, and he gave us total confidence that he would pull it off. He's organized and instinctive and adaptable--all essentials in the entertainment biz.

Geoff was also incredibly patient with me (the bride) as I changed my mind a few times him regarding uplighting and asked a ton of questions regarding his booth setup (which looked awesome--my planner and I were just super particular about aesthetic). He was always congenial, helpful, and flexible no matter the question.

On the wedding day itself, we had a total blast! Is there any better testament to a good DJ? From bridal party intros through cake cutting and the final sendoff, Geoff was an excellent emcee, but also knew when to get out of the way and let us party. Grace was a fly on the wall ensuring things went smoothly. Our reception was perfect, and Local Motion was a huge part of that. I would recommend them to anyone!

This was the best wedding DJ we could have possibly booked. He was professional, attentive and intuitive to a level that only comes with experience and a passion for his career. With his assistant Gracie our wedding went perfectly smoothe , they anticipated every aspect and song and guided us through the process with the utmost of professionalism and care. Geoff had every single person there on the dance floor no matter what their taste in music was. I highly recommend him.

We worked with Geoff and his wife from Local Motion Entertainment. From the beginning, speaking with Geoff was like speaking to a long-time friend, and he was always with the biggest, kindest, most sincere smile. You almost want to hug the guy every time you meet him, especially with his perfect, soothing DJ voice.

Geoff is professional, thorough, organized, and he definitely knows the different genres of music well enough to offer suggestions, providing appropriate yet unique songs for the father/daughter and mother/son dances. Most importantly, Geoff understands people. He listened to how we envisioned our wedding, understood what we wanted, and effortlessly delivered. He perfectly tailored our song list to our personalities but was also able to tie in songs to entertain everyone – young or not-so-young, hip or classy. Numerous people were impressed with how he was able to read the crowd, was attentive to our guests, and smoothly transitioned the reception events. For example, he lowered the volume and played “conversation” music during dinner. He made announcements, when needed, in a cordial, dignified manner. He was also able to coordinate with and work extremely well with our photographer (Eric Brushett, also highly recommended). All of this was included in a fabulously affordable (and discounted) price of $1495 for a 5-6 hour reception.

In summary, Geoff is a genuinely kind guy who feels like an old friend who works hard to organize an amazing, personalized wedding experience. He understands people, and he listens to the bride and groom’s wishes. He helped us along and seamlessly delivered exactly what we dreamed our wedding would be. Geoff and his wife (of Local Motion Entertainment) are recommended with the highest praises, and everyone lucky enough to book them will surely be astonished and grateful for their thoughtful, memorable service.

Geoff and his staff at Local Motion provided everything we had hoped for in a wedding DJ and more. He was professional, prompt and flexible. He was detail-oriented at our meetings and helped us to structure our ceremony and reception. He was open to all of our play list requests and do not play requests, and he also provided suggestions for songs when we were stumped. He really understood the vibe/tone we wanted at our wedding and behaved accordingly at the event. The fact that he was so on top of things really helped us to relax and enjoy the evening. He even made sure to have our ceremony music on hand just in case we had trouble with the live music planned for that portion of the event. We had to make a few last minute changes to the programming and he adjusted so smoothly that no one could tell. He was unflaggingly courteous to our wedding guests, and frequently checked in with us during the event to make sure we were having a great time. His pricing is very competitive and he never tried to up-sell us on services. He worked so well with our venue and our other vendors. At the end of the event we had many guests note how smoothly all announcements and speeches went, and especially how much fun they had dancing. Finally, he is a really friendly, genuine guy and we enjoyed every interaction with him. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Local Motion Entertainment is a professional DJ company which is exactly what you want with all that goes into wedding planning. We worked with Geoff but the entire team provides a great service. They are more than willing to meet with you, hear your wishes and desires and make suggestions and provide options when needed, regardless of your personal expertise, i.e., novice or professional musician. You do yourself a disservice by not meeting them when you need a DJ! Once you meet them you can't help but hire them!

I would highly recommend Local Motion Entertainment. Geoff is absolute amazing!! He makes this process so easy and stress free. I believe the music is the most important part of a wedding and I can not rave enough about this company! Geoff was on point all night and had all my guest out of there seats the entire time. One of my guests came up to me and said "you know its a good night when you have to be asked to be seated to eat dinner". Not only was Geoff able to set the tone with the music, but the up lighting transformed the space. We started out romantic for dinner and then turned it up to an all out multi-color show for the dancing. Thanks for making our wedding the best night of our lives!!!

To future couples-Look no further because you found the best!!

We hired Geoff to DJ our wedding at the Branford House on 4/23. I'm so glad we hired him - he was the best vendor we worked with for our wedding! Geoff was extremely professional, very organized, prompt, responsive, and a genuinely nice person to work with. I got a pretty basic DJ package for my wedding and he was never pushy or trying to upsell me anything I wasn't interested in. A month or so out from the wedding, we had an in person meeting where we went over all the details and he really put me at ease, letting me know that he would be taking care of everything that day and just letting us sit back and enjoy ourselves.

I had people tell me, "DJ's always say that..." but Geoff and Grace really stepped up and made our wedding truly amazing. Everyone had so much fun and we all danced all night. He did a great job including music for all generations, so even my 93 year old great aunt was out on the dance floor with us! Thank you Geoff & Grace so much for playing such an integral part in our wedding!!
