We has a great time working with Steve Gamlin, and the Northstar group in general. Steve completely nailed the wedding, and was very receptive to our music requests and preferences. We were very happy with our experience, and would completely recommend Steve to our friends.

Working with Steve was easy and simple. Before the wedding, my husband and I met with him at Panera. He is very laid back and genuinely cares about what you want. 11 months before the wedding we went over the do not play list, the general feel we wanted, and started to brainstorm what songs we wanted. Steve has his own recording studio and said he could take anything we found (youtube, other) and clip it based on time according to our needs. A month before the wedding we sent in our final playlist (Steve went above and beyond in terms of flexibility telling us we could let him know of changes anytime... including the day of the wedding).

During the wedding, Steve arrived on time and got every single cue of the bridesmaids/groomsmen/bride transitions perfectly. During cocktail hour and dinner the music was just perfect (not stuffy, not boring... but lively and appropriate for dinner). Even more impressive was his ability to improvise. I asked him to play my college fight song about 15 minutes before it was needed, and he made it happen.

Most importantly, he was able to read the crowd. He was able to keep the music volume fun and lively so that everyone (including the older folks) could get up and enjoy the music. Towards the end of the reception, he turned the music up which was perfect for us 20/30 somethings. I am recommending Steve to friends getting married in the upcoming year and hope you enjoy working with him as much as I did!

Steve Gamlin was an amazing part of our wedding! He was so easy to work with and made sure my wedding went exactly as I wanted it to. He even remembered special requests that I would have forgotten I asked for amidst all the excitement of being a bride. He hands down granted all of my musical wishes! Everyone was raving about the music. Thank you Steve Gamlin for helping make my special day that much more amazing and personalized! Highly recommend!

Steve Gamlin was our Dj. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. He played every single song on our must play list, didn't play anything from the do not play list, and kept people on the dance floor all night with his song choices and flow. He made sure to get the correct pronunciations of everyone being introduced, and edited our songs perfectly so that nobody could even tell (we wanted our parent dances and first dance to be shorter than the songs were). He even made a change to our entrance song when I called him the night before to tell him we needed it to be longer. We got tons of compliments on him from our guests. We couldn't be happier!

I am a wedding photographer who has worked at several weddings alongside Steve (through coincidence, I am not associated with him professionally.) I have worked with dozens of DJs, but when the time came for me to choose a DJ for my own wedding, the choice was easy. Steve was affordable, and very responsive during communication leading up to the wedding. He was cooperative and affable with our other vendors, as well as our guests. His laid back and non-intrusive attitude put guests at ease without any cheesy games or gimmicks. He did a wonderful job of keeping the dance floor full with his music. He gracefully combined the music we had requested with his own choices based upon the feel of the crowd, and people absolutely loved it. I could not be happier; I have had multiple wedding guests tell me that our wedding was the funnest wedding they have ever been to, and a lot of that had to do with Steve; I would recommend him to anyone.

I cannot begin to sing the praises of Steve Gamlin of Northstar Entertainment Agency, but I will try.

Steve came highly recommended; however, I needed to vet the disc jockey of my wedding.

We met for coffee one evening and after an hour, I knew that I needed to have Steve. He is extraordinarily well-versed in current and classic music. His access to a private studio allows him to create cuts of songs for entrances and for first and last dances.

His customer service is beyond compare. We ended up meeting with Steve again for coffee to finalize the playlist for the wedding. What Steve does best is listen. He was by far the easiest vendor to work with, which translated to a successful wedding day. His flexibility and patience when working with other vendors was superb.

Both families were supremely impressed at his humor, personality, professionalism, and his ability to read the feeling of a room. Once started, the dance floor was never empty, and in fact, people were sprinting up a hill to reach the dance floor at times.

If you are considering working with Steve, do yourself a favor and set up a meeting -- you will not be disappointed.

Amazing!! Everyone I spoke with a worked with from this company was fantastic. From John & Jamie on the administrative end to our DJ Steve Gamlin. All email inquires & phone calls were quickly replied to from John, Jamie & Steve. Steve checked in with me before the wedding to confirm details that we exchanged over email. He was very concerned with pronouncing everyone's names correctly, having the timing of reception events correct, playing the songs we requested, & avoiding those we didn't want. Over the phone & via email, John & Steve are easy to talk to, they were always sincere & honest in their opinions & always very professional! Steve was also very helpful providing a microphone & sound for the officiant at our outdoor ceremony, & communicating with our ceremony musicians about their needs. I highly recommend this company without reservations!

I used Northstar Entertainment after the recommendation of my wedding venue Andover Country Club. I needed a piano player for my cocktail hour. The agency recommended that I go with Daniel Webster, because he was close to the venue and the venue itself had really liked him. He was a little higher then I wanted to pay but because of all the recommendations and his proximity to the venue I booked him. Northstar entertainment was quick to process contract and payment.

Fast forward to my wedding day and the piano player does not show up on time. (i only had him playing for 1 hour). Everyone is calling the agency and they keep saying he walking in the door, which he wasn't. I honestly think someone forgot about the event wether it was the pianist or the agency, not sure but he didn't show up on time. Needless to say, my venue Andover Country Club wasn't happy either because they had made the recommendation. My wedding planner contacted them while I was on my honeymoon and no calls were ever returned.
