Phil did an absolutely AMAZING job with our wedding. He read the crowd just right, had great ways of getting everyone out on the dance floor, and really put us at ease about the music when we met with him for our pre-event detail meeting. I highly, highly recommend him!

Phil Tucker was our DJ and also did all of our cermony music. He set up speakers outside for the ceremony, it was flawless, prefect timing and played every song we asked. He played everything we requested and kept the party going all night! He is a pro and the best at what he does and is worth every penny, if you're looking for the BEST go with him!

Phil Tucker was our DJ and Official Entertainment also provided the gorgeous fuchsia uplighting for our wedding reception! Phil was another vendor on our MUST-HAVE list when planning our wedding! He is one of the best DJ's I've ever heard - he has so many songs (I don't believe there was any song that our guests requested that he didn't have on hand). I've been to a ton of events where Official Entertainment provided the entertainment and at every single event, the dance floor was packed the entire time, which is exactly what you want! Our 250 guests (who were a wide variety of ages) all LOVED to dance, and we received so many compliments on our DJ! In fact, I had several people ask me that night to give them business cards of his! :) The uplighting was absolutely beautiful and completely transformed our reception venue! I could not recommend Official Entertainment more highly - I would happily refer them to any and everyone I know! If you want to guarantee that your guests have a blast at your wedding, you better make your big day "Official!" :)

Phil Tucker was our DJ and we couldn't have asked for better. He had a great mix of music from Jitterbug to present day. The music was kept low and instrumental during dinner, but Phil cut loose once the dancing began. :) I will definitely hire through this company again!

Phil Tucker was my DJ and he did an excellent job. His prices were very reasonable and he kept the party going all night with great music. He was very easy to work with and always answered his emails in a timely fashion. The wedding website he gave me to set up my playlist was very user friendly. I have recommended him to many of my friends and have been to 5 different events he DJ'ed. I highly recommend him.

Phil Tucker was a great DJ. Having recently been at a wedding where the DJ became an annoying part of the event, we knew we did not want that. Phil tuned into our likes and dislikes immediately. The dinner music selections were enjoyable and quiet enough for table conversations. And then when the dancing began he played a great selection of loud and soft music. He got the energy going in a very unobtrusive manner. In addition, he provided up-lighting that transformed the venue and made it magical. I would highly recommend him to future brides.
