World Renown Entertainment consist of two professionally trained DJ's: Jamaal and Pete. We have been in service for over 10 years throughout DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the East Coast. We started at house parties in middle school. By the time we graduated high school we had done over 500 parties including school dances and would venture to college. In college, we both got to DJ the various clubs/bars at our prospective universities. Soon after college a good friend was getting married and asked us to DJ their wedding and World Renown Entertainment was born in 2000. As more friends got married, we gained valuable experience on how to smoothly run a wedding reception and coordinate with the event coordinator, the photographer/s and the guests.
Since 2000, we have entertained family members & guests at over 300 weddings.Our commitment to our clients is to provide top notch quality entertainment. We believe that a wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life and the planning of such an event, should be enjoyable and stress free. We work closely with you to decide on the perfect music for your special day.
If you're looking for a talkative, taking all the attention, overly excited "cheesy" DJ, then we are not for you! We believe that a wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life and all the attention should be on you! The photographers are there for you not the DJ. We have a laid back style which allows you to remain in the spot light but at the same time we keep the dance floor packed all night! Read less

Jamaal was AWESOME! Our guests (and us!) had the BEST time at our wedding. I would highly recommend World Renown for any event where you want your guests to have an amazing time! Jamaal did exactly what we asked in regards to what type of music to play and when. We gave him a vague idea of what we wanted and he created an amazing atmosphere for our big day! His price was right too! He was very responsive to e-mails and paid attention to details (which I loved!). He was extremely professional, but also very fun! We loved having him as our DJ and would choose him again!

Jamaal was the DJ for our wedding this past Saturday. He was absolutely amazing through out the entire process. We got married at the Baltimore Aquarium which had a unique set up and he went to the aquarium to do a walk through before I even had the chance to suggest it. He is a true professional who is extremely timely in responding to brides/grooms. All of our guests loved him and were on the dance floor all night long. I strongly suggest him.

Jamaal was great. I attended a wedding last year and it was one of the best weddings I attended. He played great dance music so naturally I wanted him at my wedding. He was the epitome of professionalism. He took all my requests for the prelude music and provided different versions for me to select. He provided music at the ceremony and the reception. He set up music in 2 different locations. I have already recommended to friends and will continue to do so.

It was truly a blessing that I stumbled across Jamaal. His personality fit ours so well and I knew from the moment I met him that he would be the perfect DJ for our wedding! Jamaal is very passionate about music and is so laid back and flexible that he most certainly does what you want. His professionalism was amazing and he came through whenever I asked him to customize parts of our music selection. Thank you so much for the best entertainment we could have asked for Jamaal!

World Renown did a phenomenal job with our wedding. We were married outside with an indoor reception and Jamaal handled the sound/music in both locations. He is extremely professional and accommodated every special request that we had (both pre-wedding day and on-the-fly). The ceremony music, the toasts, and the mother/son, father/daughter, first dance songs were all perfect. He did play some hilariously sappy music during dinner (I think there was some Celine Dion, maybe some Toni Braxton in there?) but I'm sure if you gave him suggestions/guidelines (I didn't) he would play whatever you wanted. He could not have done a better job at keeping the dance party going at the reception. Overall, Jamaal of World Renown is a pleasure to work with.

Jamaal was everything that we could have possibly asked for in a DJ and then some! My Wife and I learned of Jamaal from a friend who has worked with him in the past and from the first time we met with him we knew that he was going to be someone we could get along with, rely on, and most importantly, trust. He took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for and from that moment on he was always extremely helpful and responsive whenever we interacted with him...and that was quite a bit

Jamaal was able to do everything we asked of him to a tee and he was also like my right hand man if I needed anything, or if there was anything I needed to know about. He somehow was able to perfectly walk the line of being informative without being annoying or overbearing. If there was something we needed to know ... he appeared and let us know. If we were running out of time and needed to get things moving ... he politely let us know without freaking us out! If a drunk family member wanted to make a speech using his microphone ... he discreetly let me know and got my permission first!

When the time came for dancing, Jamaal was able to seamlessly blend all of the quirky music requests we made and he never skipped a beat ... pun intended! He was affordable, he was fun, he was aware and on point at all times, he was accommodating and friendly, and I cannot think of one negative thing to say about him. Overall we would HIGHLY recommend using Jamaal and World Renown for whatever your event is because he's great at what he does. He's so much more than just a DJ, he's an event planner, a DJ, a facilitator/organizer, and a friend!

5 Stars and 4 Giant Thumbs UP!

We hired Jamaal to DJ our wedding reception and were very pleased with his services. I am very particular about music and originally wanted to do the whole thing myself. When I realized this would be too complicated logistically, I decided to try to find a DJ who would be low key and willing to play my music selection and Jamaal delivered. He was also a pleasure to work with, as he was very responsive to all of my emails leading up to our wedding day.

If your looking for a DJ for your wedding Jamaal has got you covered. Jamaal traveled pretty far for my wedding. He came recommended from a friend and he also DJ'd my sisters wedding. Jamaal played all the songs I wanted to hear and he play the songs my wife wanted to hear, but was able to blend the two in a way that it didn't disrupt the follow of the wedding. My wife and I have different taste in music selection. Jamaal was flexible with multiple set ups and was able to comfortable change on the fly when our wedding that was supposed to be outside got rained out. I would definitely recommend Jamaal to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding. He did a great job at my wedding and my sister's. He is 2 for 2 in my book.
