We recently got married at an upscale hotel in the Boston area. Lauren & Dj Oliver provided all the music from the wedding march, the background music during the coctail hour to the dance and live music during the reception. We highly recommend them.

Lauren & DJ Oliver (Ultimate Music Events)- I want to thank you for the FANTASTIC entertainment and great time you afforded us at our wedding reception. The two of you were the ultimate duo... Lauren, your voice is amazing and hit all the right "notes" with our family and friends. And, DJ Oliver, I loved how you were able to accommodate any music request. The two of you really got our "party started." We heard so many of our guests say that it was the best wedding they'd been to in years. We can't thank you enough for making our day even more special. Thank you, Elizabeth!

Wanted to express my full support for these two! My daughter was just married out side at a prestegious hotel in the northern part of New Hampshire. The weather turned out perfect, and what made the night was the entertainment that we had hired. Lauren was awesome and so talented, her voice soard and what a pleasure to hear true talent front stage. The DJ was just as perfessional as well. He was quick with the response of the following song on the list that was given. Plus when we were dinning he had made sure the volume was at a comfortable level, so we could socialize with our guest's. We Thank you so much for the wounderful time!

We wanted to go all out with our wedding since people flew in from all over the country. Lauren and the band played for the first part of our reception and when everyone was feeling no pain they danced to every disco dance song that Dj Oliver played. It was an awesome time. Well have them back for our next party,
