We hired Spark Entertainment to be our DJ for our wedding. Our wedding was on 10/12/13. It was a rather large wedding as there were about 215 people. Angel was our DJ and he was AWESOME! Everything from the first meet several months before the wedding to the night of he was great! What I liked best he he kept the night moving and kept my bride and I on point and on schedule all night long. Truly 5 star service if I do say! Also in my opinion for the services we received the price was very reasonable. Thank you for everything!

He did an amazing Job!! My sister got married a few months after me and he did a great with her wedding as well. I only have one small negative comment, that was he played the same activity game for both my wedding and my sister game so it was a little old. Wish he would have done a different game for hers.

Angel was our DJ and He was outstanding, he had our guests dancing all night long. We did not have a typical wedding, we asked Angel not to MC the event, just DJ and he respected our wishes. We had a wide age range of guests and I think Angel has a unique talent for reading the crowd/room and deciding what should be played.

We were very pleased with music and DJ... everyone said they enjoyed the music, dancing and had a great time.

Spark Entertainment was great at our wedding. The planning was done at our convenience and Angel was great to work with. He made planning our event and the actual day of as stress-free as it could possibly be. He handled all our special requests perfectly & kept our guests entertained. We even had last minute changes the day of the event and Angel was so quick and easy to make it all happen. He was dressed professionally and everyone loved him. I even had guests come up to ask where I found my DJ. We used the uplighting services also - the space looked beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

Angel, owner of Spark Entertainment, was the DJ at my small wedding and he did an amazing job at keeping everything running smoothly and engaging my guests to be on the dance floor. The wedding guests from the wedding next door even came over to dance "stating that the music was better at our wedding". That is a huge compliment!

From the moment that I spoke to Angel the first time until the end of the wedding, he was so helpful with suggestions. I will recommend Sparks Entertainment to everyone I know and to you, the reader, of this post.

Looks to me that I was one of the only ones that had a bad experience. I thought I was going to be getting a great evening with what I was told a great DJ "Angel". But, after I paid my final deposit (2 weeks before the wedding) I was informed that I wasn't going to have Angel as my DJ (my contract was for Angel not the awful DJ I was given). We had previous prepared for an HOUR AND A HALF over the phone about how our day was suppose to go. On the day of our wedding NOTHING went right. Our DJ asked us every question imaginable while we were suppose to be enjoying ourselves. The introductions were misread, he made only a few announcements of important events (none for the dances, garter,cake, or speeches.) We had to pass the microphone around to everyone that was suppose to speak as well. Lastly, he played techno which none of my wedding guests were dancing to and he wouldn't play requests that my quest wanted to hear. Whatever you do...do not book Danny!
