I was really blown away by how wonderful Milestone Entertainment was. After speaking to us and hearing our preferences, they really delivered on our wedding day.

They provided up-lighting for us. Based on our venue, Gabriel gave his recommendation for a soft gold up-lighting. It really transformed the room and felt very elegant. It was a nice ambient light so you never struggled to see, but it was dark enough you could still dance.

They did a wonderful job with the volume of the music. It was soft enough at dinner and cocktail hour that you could carry a conversation easily. Even when the dance floor opened it, it was louder, but you could still talk over it.

Finally the choice of music was perfect. It was kept very appropriate. When someone requested Shots, the DJ declined, saying that the language wasn’t appropriate with the small children there. They honored the lists they gave us for songs we wanted played and wanted to avoid. They had a good mix so young and old were able to dance and enjoy it.

At one point, we decided we were going to do another round of drinks the next time a song was played we didn’t love and want to dance to. 5 songs later, we decided we were just going to have to miss an awesome dance song. The dance floor stayed full all night long.

Finally, they had excellent communication with my photographer and event coordinator. The entire day ran seamlessly.

My only criticism is that I usually had to call or email a couple of times in order to get ahold of them, but since Gabriel is running this business himself, it's understandable. As soon as we got closer to the day, his responsiveness picked up. Plus, he did such an amazing job, it really doesn’t detract from my 5 star review.

I’m so glad we hired them. They really helped make the reception special!

Milestone was the DJ for our Jack & Jill and Wedding. Gabe was fantastic! He was organized and asked questions to make sure that our day went off without a hitch. He listens to what your vision is and gives honest feedback.

I highly recommend Milestone Entertainment to conduct any event requiring a DJ. They were part of the process every step of the way. Prior to the wedding we met with them in person twice as well as multiple correspondence with them via email. At the wedding they ran the show. Took requests and allowed the wedding to run very smoothly. Their expertise and experience came handy in scenario's where our lack of insight prohibited us to make surehanded desicions. I give a resounding 5 out of 5 only because it doesn't go higher than that. Very professional and easy to work with. Thank you Gabe and Ryan.

The final meeting and the day of the reception Gabe and Mike were amazing. So helpful, great suggestions, willing to listen to ideas and really delivered on the day. They played everything we wanted, had our families up and dancing and laughing with a special who wants to be a millionaire spoof for the clanging of the glasses. Very happy with the end result, but I have to say that the lack of responsiveness was stressful. There were many times that I felt frustrated with not getting answers promptly. Gabe assured us that the final product would be great and he was right, however he really needs to get a secretary. The uplighting they provided was great too, made the room that much more special.

Gabriel and Michael from Milestone Entertainment of New England recently provided DJ service for our ceremony and reception at Maneeley's. When we first met them at the Jenks' Bridal Expo, we were extremely impressed with them. They were very professional and didn't try to push themselves on you and tell you all the reasons they were better than everyone else. Their booth, professional attitude, friendliness, and prior reviews spoke for themselves. Gabe was really flexible about scheduling our initial meeting since I was traveling from out of town during the planning process. We met with a few other DJs as well, but there was no question we wanted to go with Milestone. Their prices were very reasonable too. I did give them a 4 for responsiveness only because it was a little difficult to get a hold of Gabe as it got closer to the wedding because he was so busy, which as a bride made me a little nervous, but I guess that just goes to show how in demand these guys are! Once we scheduled our final meeting, everything was smooth sailing. Gabe made it really convenient for us by traveling out to our house. We went over every little detail and he made us feel really comfortable with everything. On the day of, the guys did an amazing job with the ceremony and the reception was a blast. Our guests were dancing all night long. They played all of the songs we requested and made sure all of our special dance songs were perfectly timed just as we wanted them. They also provided uplighting which was went beautifully with our venue. Mike handled the music behind the scenes while Gabe was out on the floor MC-ing all of the fun wedding traditions and keeping the crowd going. They did an absolutely fantastic job. We were so happy with how everything turned out. I would definitely recommend these guys for any event. They are professionals who know what they are doing. They were really fun to work with too!

Gabe and Mike were amazing and the night couldn't of been better. A lot of people couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had and how they loved the music they played. Two things guests walk away from a wedding talking the most about at the end of the night is the music and the food. You have no worries about the music part when you choose Milestone.

I've had more people go out of their way to tell us that our wedding reception was without question the most enjoyable wedding they'd ever been to, citing more than anything, the fun, yet not intrusive DJ's. The blend of music played kept everyone involved. Older guests weren't bogged down by rap music making them leave the floor, and our twenty-something friends weren't over exposed to slower music, making them find something else to do. The blend of music kept everyone involved and close to the dance floor. You guys handled requests perfectly, you absolutely nailed the special requests I had going on without issue, you handled the "must play," and "do not play" lists without a single missed song, and the roaming DJ on the mic made a positive difference that I never could have imagined.

You guys set the tone for the reception in a way that I never could have imagined. I was blown away by the job you did, and will forever reflect fondly on my wedding reception and the atmosphere you created. We wanted a fun wedding, and there's no doubt that's what we got.

I spoke about this with my best man a few days after, and he put it perfectly when he said, "Those guys are professionals, and they knew what they were doing."

Earl was our DJ and he was fantastic! We spoke during set up about what sort of music would be played at the wedding, the type of group that would be there and the time line of everything for that evening. He played everything that we discussed, played to the crowds mood and got people on the dance floor from beginning to end! Loved every minute of my J&J and can't wait for the wedding!! :)

Milestone Entertainment has been providing DJ services for me and my company for several years, and we have always been delighted with them. The music, the vibe, and their professionalism are top-notch. When you're getting married, you have enough to do...go with Milestone and know that your entertainment is one less thing to worry about. Gabe is outstanding!

Milestone entertainment was absolutely awesome to work with. The packet they provide to guide you through your music selections was a great help. The djs were very personable easy to work with, especially before the wedding with there quick response to all email and voicemail.They even added club lighting for us free of charge, because he felt uplighting was not enough. To me the price we paid for the service was a very nice value and the service was top class, not to mention you get 2 djs. Oh and the music quality and selection was perfect.

Milestone did a very professional job at our wedding reception. They communicated very well and do a great job of preparing before the event. Everything was setup upon our arrival. They have the experience to think of many small details which made the entire reception flow very nicely. The entire night went as planned, all of our guests had a good time and most importantly the bride was thrilled!

Milestone Entertainment really knew how to get my wedding guests off their seats and enjoy the dance floor. They were able to provide me with everything I requested including a violinist for my cocktail hour, lighting, singers for our first dance and cant forget the confetti machine. I couldn't have asked for better DJ services.

Joanna and Tim; The entire Staff at Milestone Entertainment had a great time at your wedding. We are so glad all the details come together perfectly. Michael and I, violinist Aaron, acoustic musicians Pete and Aaron, Steve Keegan at the Sheraton, and even your videographer Tim O'Donnel still comment on what a great night that was! I hope everything is going well with you in the new year. Keep in touch!

We were very disappointed in Milestone's service at our wedding, esp for the cost. There were several issues that happened during the reception that we felt was unacceptable and poor. We wrote Milestone a letter after our wedding and heard NOTHING back from them, which my husband and I felt was unprofessional.
The first problem happened during our entrance to the wedding reception. They mispronounced my parents name incorrectly (and they had JUST reviewed it) prior to the entrance. It is not a difficult name to pronounce.
Second, during the reception, we thought we hired TWO DJ's to be present throughout the entire reception. After about 30 min, one of the DJ's left and was not present. Then during the reception, music actually SKIPPED (I was so upset) because there was NO DJ's at the DJ station and our photographer actually had to go figure out how to stop the skipping and turn different music on!!! This should have NEVER happened :(
I was hoping to have the DJ get more guests active on the dance floor like the promised during our pre wedding meetings...with their upbeat attitudes, great music, fun atmosphere..and I know that it can be difficult to get guests to dance etc..but we also thought one of the DJ's would be taking music requests, doing more active roles while the other DJ played the music...well like I mentioned before, it was not like that. We only had one DJ, not two like we were promised.
So overall experience...POOR. I would never recommend this DJ to any friends or family and would not use them again!

Hello Sheri;
Each and every wedding we become a part of, is treated with the highest regard. There are several questionable discrepancies and feelings that were never brought to my attention. Either personally, by email, or by letter. I would love the opportunity to discuss these items at your convenience.

We were very pleased with our decision to use Milestone Entertainment. They are not the typically DJ's...they are very organized and really personalized their services to fit our likes and dislikes. The two DJ concept was great and they did a great job of coordinating the days events. Mike was a great DJ and really made the day special. The music was great and they kept everyone dancing all night. Highly recommend Milestone Entertainment.

I highly recommend Milestone Entertainment. I met them at the bridal show, and was excited to work with Mike Dee's from the weekly top 40 on the radio, which I had listen to as a little girl. Mike and Gabriel are very professional. The did an excellent job keeping our wedding reception organized and exciting. They accommodated our unusual music preferences (Phish, etc) while keeping the party dancing. They discussed and planned with us to make sure we were happy, and checked with us on the pronunciation of the the names of the people in our wedding party for the announcements. Harrington Farms in Princeton, MA (where we had our wedding reception) said that they had never seen so many people dancing in the hall. We could not have made a better choice!

Very fun DJs! Talk about personality. They were very friendly to work with. We hired them for both our Jack and Jill and wedding. We had Gabriel Fierro at the Jack and Jill and Michael DeVries at the wedding. Both men had assistants for setup and Michael had another DJ with him at the wedding so that they could talk on the microphone and play music without a problem. Very entertaining. Great "radio" voices and even at the Jack and Jill they were all dressed very professionally in suits! Played everything on my list that I submitted with no problem and came to me when there was a questionable request. I knew these guys were the ones when we saw them at the local bridal show! Price included both events.

Thanks Amanda; We all had a great time with you and Nick at your Jack and Jill and Wedding Reception. The Carriage House at Forest Park is a great place to have a reception, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer couple of newlyweds to work with! Since your wedding in 2007, we had the opportunity to see everyone again for your sisters Jack and Jill and wedding reception in 2010. Thank you again! We hope to see you again soon!
