OCA Entertainment Services provided an exceptional wedding experience for myself and my husbands big day!! We had the whole dj package and decided to include the photobooth as well and we were blown away at how amazing the night went. We had requested that they incorporate some Spanish music as well into our reception and they did it flawlessly!! People are still talking about it and I loved being able to go through and see all the pics from the photobooth!! We've recommended OCA Entertainment to many friends and family. Well, the ones who didn't personally ask for a business card from them by the end of the evening. Thank you Chaz and your sidekick (I forget his name) for an amazing job well done!!

Thank you Mysti, we appreciate the comments... Our favorite part was when they were tossing your husband Chipo into the air.. I don't think I ever had an opportunity to see that in person.

Working with Chaz as a DJ for my wedding was absolutely amazing. He was beyond helpful and gave so much helpful insight that I would not have been able to have such an amazing reception without him. He also provided my reception with a photo booth which turned out to be one of the best hits at my wedding.

If I could do the day all over again, I have no reservations that I would hire Chaz at OCA Entertainment in a heartbeat. He is hardworking and it shows in not only his work but his professionalism as well.

Chaz did an amazing job entertaining our guests and keeping the party going. He even spent about an hour doing fun stuff with the children that were at our reception. He met with me about three times prior to my wedding telling me of his plans and the prop's he would need. It wasn't until the wedding day that I seen his amazing ideas come to life. It was a huge conversation piece from others of how he involved the little people.

From the moment I booked Chaz, I knew that my day was going to be amazing. He asked so many questions to help get a feel for what I wanted my day to be like. He went above and beyond making my day amazing and leaving my guests talking about it for months. He, hands down, stood out above everyone for my wedding. As Chaz told me in one of our first meetings: "what is it you remember from the last wedding you were at?" My answer was the food, decorations, and music. He was so right. Beyond 100% pleased with his business and would highly recommend to ANYONE!

One of the only words I can use to describe this company is AMAZING! Their services were the ONLY thing I did not have to worry about on my special day. Chaz and his team are professional, and made our event memorable and made it OURS. Chaz made sure that he had everything we wanted and needed that day, and also had everything planned out so we did not have to worry about something happening. He was very interactive with our guests and it was great! My husband and I got married in 2012 and people are STILL talking about our reception and the DJ services. I will never refer anyone else to anyone.

Chad is very friendly yet professional at the same time. I truly believe he gives it his all when it comes to any occasion and do recommend him to others.

We had used their services for both photobooth and for performing our ceremony. I will start by saying that we were very pleased with the ceremony. We had a very non-traditional ceremony that including old-world hand-fasting instead of the "churchy" stuff. Very accommodating and worked with us on the wording fitting us and not cookie cutter. The photobooth, on the other hand, we were not as impressed with. From being offended that I asked for other means than an "ap" to view their services; to not having the backgrounds and picture style we chose applied. We did not get the services we were promised with the booth. It was blamed on the lighting at the bar. The bar openly expressed that they have had booths set up in that corner numerous times before with no issues. A quarter of our photos came out with the green screen behind us instead of our backdrop. We were promised 3 backdrops for our guests to choose from... but only had 1 available.... due to lighting supposedly. Then, it took two weeks and me chasing them down at a friend's wedding to even get our photos. The cost would have been very decent... if we would have gotten what was promised. I would recommend for ceremonies, but not for booth based off of our experience. Sorry Chaz, I have to be honest.

He engaged the audience, but he stumbled when playing songs. Often playing the wrong ones. Stopping them in the middle to play the right one. He was creative in ways to do the garter toss and first dance. He was AWALL and it took me over 20 calls to get a hold of him. Because of this many of the things we had talked about doing did not happen. He was professionally dressed and was there on time. He was not very professional on the phone and sometimes down right rude. It was an ok value in cost but not worth the headache. He was extremely in flexible.

This review is from 2008:

The Event was a beautiful, well decorated, and fun wedding reception.
The bride was fantastic to work with.

We did have a few miscues as the Introduction song was originally Get the party started by Pink.. but had been changed 2 minutes before I was ready to do Introductions to Let's get it started by Black Eyed Peas.
I cued up the correct song but during my announcements I had accidentally started the wrong song as the names were similar.

Also during the event some bridal party members asked to replay the Cha Cha Slide, which was played 3 hours previously. I had accommodated because our paperwork and the bride stressed to play all requests if possible.

During her 8 months of contracted time: We struggled to receive her last payment due of $425.00.
Our contract states that all monies shall be paid in full within 30 days prior to the event.
The bride stated that she was struggling to make the payment and asked if she could pay the day of the event. I had agreed because of the relationship we had built over those 7-8 months.

Our office was located at 308 Grand Ave, in Wausau during 2006 through 2009. The hours of the office were Monday - Friday 9am to 6pm.

We had 15 contacts, many over the phone and 4 meetings in the office and 1 meeting at her home.

After the event I had immensely apologized for my mistakes and told the bride and groom that I would not accept their last payment as I had made a mistake that I should have never made.
We had talked on the phone after her event, and I had booked 2 other weddings that she had referred to me.

About 3-4 weeks after the event, I had received a call from her caterer asking if I knew how to get a hold of her so he could get paid as well. I gave him her contact info, which was the same as he had previously had.

I did not expect this review and tried to contact the bride to ask why, but have not received any response since 2008.
