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.

I cannot say enough about Nelson and Fredo...everything was amazing. The music was the best part of our wedding- everyone was dancing the entire night and it truly made our wedding. Everyone who attended can still not stop talking about how much fun Fredo and the music was.. I highly recommend using Nelson Cruz for your next event- extremely professional but most of all fun!!

Nelson and his DJ's are amazing. My family had so much fun and the interaction with the crowd was like no other wedding DJ any of my guests have ever seen. Nelson is a down to earth type of guy always made me feel at ease the whole night, he had it all under control. Nelson worked together with my photographer and my videographer and it made my wedding night something to remember. Thank you Nelson for being the best entertainment DJ that my family has ever experienced.

Nelson Cruz was outstanding. I would highly recommend him for any event. He was spot on for all of our requests. We had a few specific parts of our wedding that we wanted certain songs and he nailed all of them.

He was a great time and really made our event spectacular!

One of the most important things to my now husband and I when planning our wedding was the DJ. We envisioned a big party with no games or cheesy songs - just great music and tons of dancing! We just needed a DJ who could bring that vision to life. On a recommendation from our photographer, we met with Nelson Cruz, and from that moment we knew we were in good hands. Nelson is extremely professional and relaxed, which put us at ease. The DJ that Nelson selected for our wedding, DJ Fredo, was perfect too - exactly what we were hoping for. Nelson and Fredo seemed to take our few song requests and match it up to the style of music we were wanting to hear all night, and it was spot on. Our guests danced non-stop for the entire night and even now a month later they are still talking about how great the music was! If you are looking for some talented DJ's who are classy and professional, Nelson Cruz Entertainment is the way to go!

We used a Nelson Cruz Music Entertainment DJ for our wedding and we could not have been happier. We met with Nelson prior to our wedding and he gave us great suggestions and made note of our requests. We wanted a good balance of older music and new music, but most importantly we wanted everyone to have a good time and dance! This is exactly what happened- the dance floor was packed all night. We have gotten so many comments from our guests on how incredible the music was and what an amazing time they had. If you want the party of a lifetime- choose Nelson Cruz Entertainment.

Nelson was our MC and along with DJ Fredo, they had our wedding guests on the dance floor from our first dance til the end of the night! He even allowed our guests the opportunity to play MC themselves.

Nelson's response to our requests was always yes, and he gave us many good tips, he even asked for a voicemail of the wedding party's names, he wanted to pronounce every name correctly, which he did!

So happy with Nelson, he is a talented and hard working professional with an upbeat personality, cannot be beat!

And Fredo rocked the spliced song mix we asked for, to mix a slow song with Harlem Shake is no small order!

We cannot say enough great things about our experience with Nelson Cruz Entertainment! From the moment we met Nelson and his wife Erin, we knew we had hit the jackpot. They were personable, professional and completely focused on understanding our wedding vision. They went above and beyond the typical questions & answers approach that many vendors use to get to know us not only as a couple but as two individuals as well. We discussed our desire to incorporate as many non-traditional shots in our photography portfolio as possible and that is exactly what we got. The pictures are absolutely breathtaking...Erin is SO talented! We selected a few must-have songs that we wanted to hear but allowed Nelson creative control over the rest and he definitely did not disappoint. There was a miscommunication (on our end) regarding ceremony music coverage and Nelson was able to accommodate our request just days before our wedding. Everyone had a great time and the pictures reflect that. Nelson had our guests dancing even before dinner was served -- who does that?! A great DJ, that's who! We consider ourselves beyond blessed that we found such an awesome DJ and photographer that ensured our special day was exactly what we wanted. Don't waste your time or money on anyone else; these two are the real deal. Thanks Nelson & Erin -- you're the best!
