AS SEEN ON:
"Four Weddings," "A Wedding Story," "Whose Wedding is it Anyway" & "The Food Network"

FINALLY... An Entertainment company that actually ENTERTAINS! If you are looking for something unique, you've come to the right place! We offer many different packages to suit any occasion or budget. From "DJ" packages to "DJ/Live Music Combinations."

When people go to an event, they want to be entertained. That's why they call it "Entertainment." A DJ spinning music for 4 or 5 hours is no one's idea of a good time. Tomardo Entertainment supplies the very best in "Live" Entertainment throughout NJ, NY and Eastern PA. Adding live music is like putting the icing on the cake. Cake is pretty good; however, icing makes it a whole lot better!

Treat your guests to a Singer for cocktail hour and dinner... or a Party Percussionist playing Congas, Bongos and Timbales along with the DJ. Our Percussionists will enhance the music and bring rhythm and spice to the dance floor. The music will take on new life as DJ and Percussionist interact and motivate the crowd. It's the Ultimate In DJ/Live Music and will raise the energy level of any event. Why settle for 4 or 5 hours of DJ music when you can add live entertainment and give your guests a party they’ll never forget.

We have Piano Players, Ceremony Musicians, Comedians, Magicians, Ventriloquists and Impersonators too. Imagine having Lady Gaga show up at your event, perform, mingle, take photo's and dance with your guests. We also offer Photo, Video, Lighting, Flat Screens and Photo Booths. We truly have it all!

It is often said that the food could be good, the reception hall can be beautiful, but the entertainment is what makes a party great. There is nothing like a Tomardo Entertainment Party! We are recommended by the best Banquet Halls and Event Planners in the Tri-State area. Feel free to browse our website, watch a sample video, listen to songs, see the different packages we offer or have your questions answered at our "FAQ" page. Also, be sure to see what our clients have to say about us on our "Testimonials" page.

Do you offer live sample performances or CDs?
We have a live video and audio samples on our website.
Are you willing to learn songs that you do not currently know?
With our Our DJ/Live Music Packages, you don't have to worry about that. If the Singer doesn't have it, the DJ can play it.
How much time do you usually need for setup?
30 mintes to 2 hours, depending on what package and add-ons the client wants.
How much space do you usually require?
anywhere from 5' x 5' to 10' x 20'. It wall depends on the package you want.

Do you usually emcee the event, or talk between songs?
We MC (emcee) the event, however we are not on the microphone a lot. We like to let the music do the talking.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We don't play songs hoping people will dance, we play songs that MAKE people dance. We are seasoned entertainers and well versed in all types of music from the 30's to today. Some companies will try to impress you with their extensive library of songs. While variety is great, the fact is that there is only room to play around 60 songs during a 4 or 5 hour event. Having the right 60 songs is a lot more important than having 50,000 songs your crowd doesn't want to hear. More songs do not make a better time. A seasoned DJ will know the right song to play at the right time and that's what makes a great party.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you need a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not take breaks. Many DJ's throw in piano music or a Kenny G CD for ceremony and dinner and usually have dinner themselves. There is nothing exciting about that. Also, if you choose one of our DJ/Live Music options, your guests will be very impressed that you went the extra mile to entertain them! If you would like to provide a meal for the entertainers, that would be appreciated.
Do you play recorded music during your break?
You will always have music playing at your event.
If one or more of the band members is unable to attend, what is your backup plan?
Our DJ/Live Music packages are second to none. We have back-up people and equipment that can always handle your event.
What is your overtime rate?
It depends on how many people in the package you choose.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Our travel expenses are built into our rates.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Simple... 50% deposit is required with the contract. The balance is due the day of your event.

We decided to use Tomardo Entertainment based solely off of reviews from WeddingWire, and I'm so glad that we went with our gut on this one. Tom was prompt and professional; he always responded to my husband and I quickly, even after Hurricane Sandy gave him major problems last year, and the fact that he reached out to us a few days prior to the wedding to go over a reception timeline helped calm my nerves a lot. We had a party ALL NIGHT at our reception, and it was with our youngest guests and our oldest guests; Tom and his assistant even had our priests on the floor dancing with us! Our guests haven't been able to stop talking about how our wedding was the most fun wedding that they've ever been to (even 2 weeks later!), and I think that Tomardo Entertainment had everything to do with that.

WOW!! Tom was truely an awesome DJ. I found it so hard to find a good DJ, I must have checked with 10 different ones. I happened to come across Tom while I was searching on Wedding Wire and I instantly knew he was the DJ for us! He promised us a dance party and that is what we got! Our guests were up dancing for all 5 hours of our ceremony! Everybody raved about how great he was. I can't wait to use him again!!! He went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined! He even made sure they bought a bottle of champagne to my table =) If you are looking for a DJ to take your special day and make it perfect this is the DJ! We cannot thank Tom enough!! It has been a week and everybody is still talking about how much fun they had thanks to Tom!

We LOVED our DJ with Wedding Singer Tom Biondi with Tomardo Entertainment. His Voice is fantastic; some people thought it was still the DJ playing music because his voice is soo great. Tom was personable, engaged with the audience and us the whole time, and delivered everything we asked for. Our dancing was non-stop, but even the non-dancers raved about the music and fun. WE Absolutely recommend him!!!

Tomardo Entertainment was phenomenal!!! Tom sang during the cocktail and the meal, and everyone thought he was lip singing, which he was not. During the reception they played a great mixture of songs, and everyone was up and dancing the whole time!! Tomardo Entertainment really made our day special and one we wont forget!

I hired Tomardo Entertainment for my wedding. I had the package where Tom sings and also provides DJ services. My guests danced from the first song till the last. Everyone is still talking about what a great job they did. Tom is so professional and his singing is outstanding.
They took all my suggestions and made some of their own which made the day flow perfectly. They really know their audience! I would not hesitate to recommend Tomardo for any event, they are THAT good!

When I first met Tom, I knew he would be the one for me!! :) I wanted a dance party and a dance party I got. The dance floor was packed all night long. When the music finally stopped, there were still tons of people on the dance floor wanting more! I had the DJ and singer package. My dad was so amazed at Toms voice that he called Tom a chameleon--his voice transformed to sound EXACTALLY like the original artist. If you want your wedding to go down in the history books, Tom and Tomardo Entertainment is the way to go. You will not be disappointed.

We did the option of having the DJ, soloist, and percussionist, as we wanted to have something a little different. The soloist performed during cocktail hour and it had just the effect I was hoping for---everyone loved it, as it was something unique and a perfect compliment to the upscale, fun nature of the cocktail hour. Tom was responsive to our every need, but didn't hesitate to verbalize his opinion when he had an opinion (which was much appreciated, as some of the things I thought I wanted were a little ridiculous).

Everyone knows that alot of the enjoyment that happens at a wedding reception, hinges on the DJ. Everyone at our wedding had such a great time, alot of people commented that it was one of the best weddings they had been do---of course we had a fun and amazing DJ. Frankie walked us through exactly what needed to be done. The friendly people at Tomardo Entertainment answered all of our questions, and since we were pretty clueless, we had a lot of questions. We were unable to attend cocktail hour because we were doing pictures, but everyone said that Tom who sang, was amazing. We planned our wedding out of state, so all of our communication was via email, they were not annoyed and were very patient with us. I am so pleased that we went with Tomardo Entertainment to entertain on our very special day, there are no wedding do overs, they made sure it was right the first time.

Tom was absolutely phenomenal, and made our wedding an amazing event. Throughout the night people commented on how great the music was, and the dance floor was jampacked literally the entire evening! But Tom's care, professionalism, expertise, and friendliness began way before our wedding day. We met with him to discuss our esoteric, random song requests and told him all of the music we love- from Polish polka to Tupac to Peter, Paul, and Mary, to punk- and he managed to not only play everything that we wanted, but also to meld it all together seamlessly! We gave him a somewhat fuzzy, vague idea about how we wanted the music at the reception to go, and what he put together for us and our guests went way beyond our expectations. Throughout the reception he checked in with us in a friendly, energetic way, was never pushy or intrusive, and really got everyone excited and ready to party! We are still hearing from our friends and family about how awesome they thought the music was, and I (and them!) will certainly be recommending Tomardo to anyone looking for an expert DJ.

Our guests were blown away by Tomardo Entertainment. He made sure we did all the traditional stuff, but we asked him to get the party started early. And he really delivered. Then during dinner, he entertained us by singing. Our guests could not believe how awesome his voice is. We did not tell anyone prior to the reception about our special entertainment and it was an awesome surprise. He also brings a DJ and he played music that everyone could enjoy. People are still telling us about what a fabulous time they had and what fabulous entertainment we had. At the end of the night, our dance floor was still packed!

Perfect, perfect, perfect! Tomardo was the best DJ/Singer I have ever seen. I loved my entertainment more than any wedding I've ever been too, and heard the same from our guests. Tomardo sang perfect cocktail hour tunes, lots of Dean Martin and Sinatra and once the reception started, he had everybody on their feet. The introductions were awesome, the energy was high throughout the entire night. He combined singing and DJ'ing to give us the best of both worlds. His voice is amazing and the DJ played great music. His song sheet was very easy to work with and he offered suggestions for each event. To be creative and we had the anniversary dance where my two oldest aunts and uncles would win. Knowing this, we had 2 prizes and everybody was taken back by the special moment. His planning for every detail was phenomenal. Thank you Tomardo!

We hired Tomardo AGAIN, this time for my teen's graduation party. A little while back, we hired him for my parent's 25 Anniversary. Well, he rocked the party with the teens this time! He kept the music going for 5 hours, and the dance floor was always packed! To keep teens on the dance floor can take work, yet Tomardo's energy and song choices were tops! We wouldn't hesitate for a second to hire him for a third time, should we ever need a DJ. I suggest him to everyone I know, as he helped us make two very special times in our lives some of the BEST nights ever!

Tomardo entertainment is one of the best in the business! I have been to about 12 weddings in the past three years and there was no DJ service that compared to Tomardo. Not only do they take care of everything, but they had the best music selection anyone could have asked for. People were out of their seats dancing all night long. Tomardo knew how to get people of all ages onto the dance floor and keep them there. It is obvious why Tomardo does such good business.

I was very pleased with Tomardo Entertainment. Mr. Biondi was very professional, flexible and excellent at his job. We had some unique requests and he was very accommodating throughout the whole process of planning the schedule. I loved Mr. Biondi's singing; it was the perfect addition to dinner. The music he played during the whole reception was great. All of my friends and family were out on the dance floor! I got multiple comments from my guests on the high quality of the D.J.. Thank-you so much for making our day great!

Working with Tom was wonderful, from our first 'meeting' through the end of our wedding, we were completely at ease. We had some special requests and he not only met but exceeded them. We got the 'singer/dj/percussionist' package and it was well worth it. People still comment to us about Tom's amazing voice and the flow of the evening. The dance floor was always full! They are a class act and give you the best of both worlds...and then some!
