Nelson Cruz & Co. was the DJ for our son's Bar Mitzvah. From the beginning of our interactions we felt he was a good listener and was very responsive to what we were saying about our son and our own taste in music. Our son didn't want a very clubby atmosphere and wanted rock as well as pop music. Nelson understood how to satisfy our likes and dislikes and still keep the party going. His dance motivators were entertaining and he contributed to a great feeling and party. Checking with us again and again throughout the party, he wanted to make sure it was going according to our plan. Super attentive.

Nelson Cruz is amazing! I felt so well taken care of both leading up to my wedding and on my wedding day. Although I got married in Rhode Island, all of our extended family is from North Carolina and Florida, and so we love the Southern-style shag dance music. Nelson was able to play the perfect mix of top 40 songs mixed in well with the classics (My Girl, Sweet Caroline, Thriller, Shout, etc.). Every person at our wedding knew every word to every song, and sang along. It was perfect, just perfect!

Nelson is a fantastic DJ! The music selection was spot-on for the newly married couple and he had almost the entire wedding on the dance floor. We couldn't be happier having Nelson Cruz Music at a Faculty House event. They are always prompt and ready for an amazing event! No one gets people dancing the way Nelson does!

I attended a Bar Mitzvah which Nelson was DJing at, and had to ask for his information because I was so impressed. When my friend asked me to be her bridesmaid and help plan her wedding, Nelson immediately came to mind. She still shopped around but ultimately came to the determination, on her own, that Nelson was the most professional and personable, and entrusted her big day with him!

Nelson was accommodating and gracious both before and during the wedding, and we didn't have to worry about a thing -- he managed the night with style and kept everyone on the dance floor. All in all, it was a fantastic event, thanks in no small part to Nelson's skills as a MC/DJ!

Nelson is a true professional. An example that comes to mind is when when he noticed, during the father-daughter dance, that the father was a little intoxicated (resulting in more "dragging" than "dancing), and made the appropriate decision to cut the dance short in a subtle and classy way. The bride was so grateful that he saved the dance.

Nelson knows how to host a great party. I can't say enough good things about him, and will continue to recommend him to all comers in the future!

Seriously no complaints at all.

Many of my guests raved about music and Nelson and his team did a great job to make such a happy festive environment.

Also, he definitely knew when to play fast songs and slow songs and kept the party going.
In addition to that, Nelson is so professional. He is always responsive to my emails, requests, and song styles I wanted to play. Before the event, he spoke to event manager at the venue and figured out all necessary logistics specific to this venue.

Nelson is very easy going and a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive to any and all requests we had. The music he chose was based on what we requested but also readily danceable and fun inspired songs. I highly recommend him.

Nelson is a kind and considerate man who obviously enjoyed his role in generating an energy of joy at my daughter's wedding. He communicated often with the bride and groom to put together the right mix of music for them, and went out of his way to communicate with the mother of the bride and one of the bridesmaids who, unbeknownst to each other, had asked him to play the same song for the bride at different points during the reception (it was such a perfect song for the bride that he played it twice!). He also helped the father of the bride perform a musical toast to the groom by locating and playing a fairly obscure Scottish song. He mastered a tight schedule of toasts without crowding out the opportunity to dance. He had visited the site ahead of time to acquaint himself with the space in which he would be working, and he showed great consideration in setting up as quietly as he could when rain had forced the wedding party indoors unexpectedly for hors d'oeuvres. He was, from start to finish, a pleasure to work with.
