Peter was wonderful! Absolutely the best DJ I've ever seen at a wedding. The DJ was one of the most important parts of our reception to me, we had several different types of music to incorporate and it takes someone who really knows how to read a crowd to make that work. He did just that and kept the dancing going all evening! I was so impressed by his professionalism and personality during the night! Definitely one of my favorite vendors!

After meeting with several DJs, I decided to use Peter's services based on his demeanor and professionalism. Peter always responded to my questions in a timely manner, and he was always very helpful, such as when I asked for an example of a mother of the groom toast. On the day of my wedding, Peter went above and beyond by handling last-minute music requests from my husband and friends very well. Many of my guests came up to me to specifically tell me how much they liked my DJ. I thought that my relatives would be too shy to dance, but even they joined in the dancing because Peter made my wedding so much fun. He is also such a nice person as well. I highly recommend Peter (Vive Entertainment) for any bride looking for a great DJ.

Peter made our wedding experience! Best DJ ever!! I cannot even describe how he managed to read our minds and play the perfect blend of songs. Plus, he is incredibly friendly and easy to work with! The pre-wedding meeting helped us to really explain our taste and narrow down a few specific songs for the night and the overall vibe we were going for- the rest was magic! He had everyone up dancing from start to finish with never a dull song or bad transition. He is a bit on the pricey side for a DJ, but TOTALLY worth every penny to make your night!!!

My husband and I had a fantastic time with Peter Pop! He's incredibly chill to deal with, but also very professional. He was on time to sound check, adhered to our no play list, and changed up the music to match the vibe of the guests. The ceremony music was right on point and our reception partied on. What was nice is that some DJs might keep the dance music popping when there's no one on the floor which is really awkward in general. Peter will adjust the music to suit the mood at the moment, but has no problem ramping it up when the guests are ready to dance. If I ever need a DJ for any other party, I am definitely going to hit him up!

Peter from Vive Entertainment is by far the best dj we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only does he have a very vast variety of music to choose from, he understands the crowd and makes sure that no one leaves the dance floor! He is VERY professional, easy to work with, and understanding. Peter provides you with outlines for the whole evening to make sure what you want is played. He was also our MC that day and pronounced EVERYONE's challenging name correctly (Big Fat Greek Wedding with Big Greek last names). Highly recommended-definitely a huge success! :-)

Peter came HIGHLY recommended both by the St. Regis and our wedding coordinator and we are EXTREMELY happy we hired Peter for our wedding reception!!! Peter was AWESOME....he was by far the BEST DJ i've ever seen at a wedding and we're glad it was OUR wedding he was at! He played excellent music and we even had guests call us the following days to compliment what a great MC/DJ we had at our wedding, and they LOVED his music selection. It was for all ages to enjoy and he did a great job at getting our guests to dance!!! I was most worried that our guests wouldn't get up from their seats to dance, but Peter did it!!! I was SO thrilled to see that and he was excellent at being an MC at our wedding reception and he had a great voice for it, which was really important to us. He really handled situations really well when given last minute tasks and he made it so easy and ran the reception so smoothly and flawlessly. He worked really well with our coordinators and photographers. Peter is very professional, classy, friendly, and really entertaining. Overall, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Peter as your DJ/MC at your wedding or else you'll regret it!!! THANKS SO MUCH PETER!!!! - Michelle and Matt

Simply put—Peter is the best!!!!! I don’t know where to begin. We had a very international guest list. I had guests fly in from London, Nigeria and China and Peter was able to play music to make everyone hit the dance floor. Not only did Peter dj our reception, he also did the music for our wedding and cocktail hour and always provided the perfect soundtrack for each moment of our wedding. For the actual ceremony he brought my strong husband to tears as I walked down the aisle, for the cocktail hour he made our guests feel as if we had whisked them off to some south of France and for the reception you would’ve thought you were at the hippest night club in any international city. To top it all off—he even gave us cds of all the songs he played and my husband and I listed to every song and could remember the events of our wedding. It was amazing. Can’t thank Peter enough for the memories

Hi Peter. Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you on a phenominal job last Friday. We got nothing but compliments on the music, from our hardest core dancers to those who would normally sit it out. Everyone had a great time, loved your selection, and danced all night. On top of all that, you could not have been more professional.
Job very well done!
Thanks again.

Peter was the DJ at my wedding reception in April 2010 at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. I could not have been happier with my decision to book him. He is responsive, professional, organized, friendly, and talented. My husband and I received so many compliments on him at our wedding. Even my parents (who were wary of finding a good DJ) were thrilled with him and are still commenting on how impressed they were with his speaking skills and professionalism.

Our dinner/toasts were in a separate room than the dance floor. Peter set up a dual speaker system that was flawless.

He also transitioned the wedding events very well and professionally. He is a great speaker and was not at all overbearing.

My dad commented today that when he went up to the front of the room to make his toast, Peter had the foresight to hand my dad both the mic and a glass of champagne. (My dad had forgotten to bring his glass.) Peter really had everything covered and was always one step ahead.

And of course, his music was amazing. The dance floor was packed and he read the guests very well. My husband and I highly recommend him.

Simply put, my husband and I never left the dance floor at our reception because Peter never stopped playing awesome music. Essentially the entire room became a dance floor because everyone was dancing. Peter was awesome to work with throughout our wedding planning. I sent him a very detailed play list about a week before the wedding (a little hyper-controlling on my part) and Peter was so gracious about accepting this list from me - he played everything on it that worked for the event and then many more songs I never would have thought of that were perfect to keep the energy up and fun all night. Peter is also very reasonably priced when I compared him to similar DJ packages and he was super easy to work with and made any adjustments that the venue and wedding planner asked of him. We loved Peter and will recommend him to all our friends getting married in Southern California (our wedding was in San Diego and he made the trip).

If you're looking for a DJ, you can stop now that you've found Peter! My husband and I can't say enough about what a great experience we had working with him. (And this is coming from two people who were originally VERY opposed to having a DJ!) Peter is extremely organized, professional, and has a calm demeanor that is really appreciated on a busy wedding day. He played exactly the kind of music we wanted to hear and MC'd the events of the reception perfectly. All of our guests kept commenting on how great the music was. Overall, our wedding day definitely wouldn't have been the same without Peter as our DJ. Highly, highly recommended.

Peter was fabulous! Our guests danced the night away and he mixed it up really well. I had a bit of trouble getting a hold of him for our first meeting, but other than that, he is a top notch, very classy DJ

We were married in July of 2009, and Peter was our reception DJ. Peter truly helped to make our day special. Not only was he extremely prepared and organized, but he was also extremely responsive to our wishes and tastes in music. We never fully realized the art behind DJ services until we recently attended a wedding and compared the tone that the DJ set there versus the tone Peter set at our wedding. Some DJs want to stick to a schedule instead of just being in the moment, responding to who is on the dance floor and the emotions in the room. That is certainly not Peter! We loved that Peter let our special moments run the night, not a pre-set agenda. Our wedding was very intimate, and we are so glad Peter was a part of it. I know we would not have the many happy memories of our wedding reception if it wasn't for him. Thank you so much, Peter.

I have to give Peter Papadopolous of Vive Entertainment RAVE reviews.

Peter was a masterful master of ceremonies. He helped to keep me calm before & during the wedding, and provided me with an incredible music library to choose from. He took as long as was needed to help me choose my music, gave me great ideas for song choices, and was very patient with me. He responded in a timely manner to my calls and reassured me when I got flustered as the wedding drew near. We spent 3 hours going through just a portion of his music library and when he didn't have something in his library, he found it for me and added it to his collection as well.

During the wedding he was the highest of professionals, incorporated all of my requests in terms of what to say and how to keep the evening running smoothly. He worked closely and successfully with my wedding coordinator and their teamwork made the evening go by so quickly we needed at least 5 more hours! Very importantly, he was respectful of my wishes not to play certain songs and also was willing to play music that my stepchildren requested by accessing them immediately even when they weren't on my playlist.

He had a great sense of humor and knew how to improvise with my guests. He also incorporated our desire to have Greek dancing to start off the dancing.

I was smart enough to book him way in advance as he has a very busy schedule and I know why.

Needless to say, I found his services to be exceptional and when the opportunity arises again, I will absolutely hire him.

Vive provided not only awesome entertainment but they were extremely professional and obviously knew how to make the event go smoothly. They were able to read the room and provide music based on what would keep the party going. Also, they were very adept at controling all aspects of the evening to make sure everything happened on time with minimal interruptions...all in all I would highly recommend them to anyone I know without hesitation!

We loved Peter! He kept the dance floor full the entire night even my 82 old grandma was staying on the dance floor. Our reception had so much energy and our guests were having a great time. Peter but together a playlist based on personalities and the music we loved. He was able to mix my husband's love of 80's music and my love of country music & Britney Spears! We highly recommend Peter!

Peter at VIVE was the most classy and professional vendor at our wedding. At the pre-wedding meetings, Peter was informative, creative, punctual and thorough. It really made it easy for my wife and I to focus on other details before the wedding knowing that the DJ was experienced. On our wedding day, Peter's introductions, music, and timelines were perfect. He really set the pace and mood for our wedding, leaving the guests to rave about all the fun they had. The music was PERFECT!! I would reccomend Peter for any event ! If you are looking for quality and professionalism, Peter is the best choice !

Thanks for Everything Peter

Not only is Peter professional, fun, funny, and easy to work with, but he keep the dance floor packed during the entire reception. He is talented in providing a good variety of music that all ages can enjoy. He also provided us with 2 copies of all the songs that he played, which was very popular among our guests who wanted copies of it after the wedding. Besides the amazing venue, Peter definitely was the key to our fun and memorable reception!

Peter's thoroughness and preparation are really impressive. He met with us at some length beforehand to make sure he understood exactly how we wanted the reception to flow. He wanted understand the tone we wanted, the level of informality, what type of music we wanted, what specific tunes we wanted to play. He did a really good job as MC for the evening, keeping things moving and adding energy. He did a particularly good job of getting people up and dancing. Many of our friends said they thought he was outstanding. Our wedding coordinator said she thought he was the best she's worked with.

I can't say enough about how pleased myself and my fiance are with Peter! Our wedding is actually next summer but we now have complete confidence in our full entertainment which releases stress and worry from me! He is very personable yet professional and his expertise about his field truly shows. Peter didn't just meet us and try to sell us on why we should use him but rather spent about 2 hours just getting to know US and what we really wanted for our day in every single way. He is very perceptive which I believe translates into why he is so talented at reading the guests on the dancefloor. When it came time to make a decision there was no pressure in any way and the decision to use him was obvious. I spoke to several other DJs and none could compare. At our meeting he also provided us a packet which is so incredibly helpful and really gave us some good talking points and ways to plan how WE wanted things to flow. I really can't say enough about how confident I feel in his services and how much this makes me just that must more excited for my special day!!
