Johnny and his staff were great! He cared about making sure everyone was having a good time, was engaging, and worked with us to make sure our reception ran smoothly. We loved the photo booth and appreciate the book of photo booth pictures. The packages he offered fit perfectly within our budget. We would definitely recommend NightBeat Entertainment to anyone looking for an entertaining dj service.

Aside from being prompt, professional and patient, Johnny kept the dance floor packed. Johnny helped us organize the entire wedding day prior to us even thinking about the itinerary weeks before the wedding-he even provided a sample timeline to assist us with getting organized. We didn't have a wedding coordinator, yet Johnny doubled as DJ and coordinator as he announced all the events for the day by guiding our guests and ourselves for what was to happen next based on the itinerary. Johnny was extremely flexible when we started toasts/dinner service early and helped the flow of the evening go smoothly. Johnny even went above and beyond by taking pictures throughout the day and emailed them to us-it was such a nice and kind surprise. And most importantly, our guests spent a majority of the night on the dance floor and raved about how great the music was the next day! We would highly recommend Johnny!

Nightbeat Entertainment brought the party to life, and kept the whole room dancing for hours on end. This was the first time I have seen many of my relatives dance and have so much fun so this was truly a special night to remember. All of the services were top notch, from the lighting, cloud machine, photo area, and DJ booth. I have never met a more professional DJ. If another event arises I would not hesitate for a second on who to call, "Nightbeat Entertainment!"

Johnny provided excellent and professional DJ service at our wedding reception. He played every song that we had requested on our "must play" list. The goal of a DJ is to keep the dance floor packed all night long and Johnny definitely accomplished that goal. We would definitely recommend Johnny and NightBeat Entertainment for wedding DJ services. People are still talking about how great the music was at our wedding reception. Thanks again Johnny for your great work!

Overall our experience with NightBeats was positive. They're not a weekend DJ service - they do this professionally and it shows. The best aspect was the online planning tools offered. We were able to create our entire playlist AND create the reception timeline - all online. The DJ called us the week before to confirm all details of the ceremony and ensure that the music we did and DID NOT want to hear was listed. The DJ did a great job the day of. He was energetic and professional. He did a great job with our wedding party. Throughout the reception he made sure to find us and see if we needed anything. The other service they offer, uplighting, is a must. We were able to really bring the reception to life with soft, LED lighting.

Unfortunately I was highly unimpressed by NightBeat Entertainment and their services. The microphones for the speeches went in and out constantly. I understand that issues happen, however I wish the DJ would have made an announcement that the speeches would continue later when they were fixed. As it was we missed 2 of the speeches made from my bridal party and I can never get that moment back.

Also, I felt that the DJ was rude to me and I had several guests come to me after the wedding that said he was rude to them as well. At first meeting the DJ met with the bridal party to go over the details. I had a lot going on in my head as you can imagine and I just wanted to make sure everything was in order so I asked very nicely if he had everyone's names for the bridal party. He laughed at me and then very condescendingly said "yes".

My Aunt was the mistress of ceremonies and at the beginning of the event she approached the DJ and told him that she was the point of contact for the evening. He responded with "No, I will be going to the Bride" and he proceeded to come to me with details that I should not have had to deal with on my wedding day.

I will honestly never use NightBeat Entertainment again and I will recommend my friends and family do the same.

NightBeat Entertainment responded with the following comments:

The microphones were tested throughly 4 hours before her event started (of which she was not charged for an early set up fee). Between that time the venue had another event in the building and there was a concert going on across the street all of which interfered with the microphones. We had changed out the microphones and were all set with new microphones in 10 minutes. We could not announce anything for her because of the microphones not working correctly.

There was a planning meeting the Sunday before the event and every detail of the event was gone over with her for an hour. At no time were we informed that there was another contact other than the bride. She states that she was concerned at the start of her event that she checked with the DJ to ensure that he had all the names of the bridal party (to which he laughed because this was gone over at the planning meeting which took an hour) yet she is upset with the DJ for coming to her for other details on her wedding day that were not discussed (ie Step Father and Grand Father bringing CD's so they could sing to her).

As the owner I am sorry that she felt the DJ was rude but I am also sure that this was just a miscommunication and at no time was the DJ rude to her or the guest.
