World Renown Entertainment is Jamaal Botticelli. I have been in service for over 15 years throughout DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the East Coast. I started at house parties in middle school. By the time I graduated high school I had done over 100 parties. In college, I got to DJ the various clubs/bars. Soon after college a good friend was getting married and asked me to DJ their wedding and World Renown Entertainment was born in 2000. As more friends got married, I 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 is GREAT to work with. He is very responsive and went above and beyond several times to ensure that our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (he did all three!) were perfect. He went out of his way to select songs that captured the elegant and classic ambiance and mood we wanted to achieve.

Jamaal went out of his way to meet me at my venue twice to ensure that everything would run smoothly on the big day - he even came to my rehearsal! I am forever grateful - I wanted to walk down the aisle to a song with my bridesmaids, and the song needed to be timed perfectly so that I would walk at the crecsendo - Jamaal went out of his way to make sure this happened correctly. On the big day, my husband got teary eyed as I walked down the aisle. This, to me, is priceless, and the absolute best moment of my life; and Jamaal helped to create that memory for me.

Jamaal was just great to work with - when my check didn't reach him right away due to Election Day and Veteran's Day, Jamaal was understanding and even told me not to worry! This is EXACTLY what a bride needs to hear right before the big day!

On the big day, Jamaal did a great job - several guests commented that he was the best DJ they had ever experienced, and NOT ONCE was the dance floor empty. We had a crowded dance floor to the very end, which is something I have never experienced before.

THANK YOU Jamaal. I will be using Jamaal for every event I have going forward. BOOK HIM NOW.

We hired Jamaal on the advice of another DJ who we knew but was unavailable, and it was a great decision! The price was right in line with what we were expecting. Jamaal kept the party moving, the dance floor was packed all night and he worked all of our special requests into the evening. He advised us on how to put the timeline together and then expertly followed it. He was very easy to work with as well and we highly recommend him!!!

Jamaal was calm, organized and professional. When my wife and I first met with him we decided to hire him. Jamaal is a true professional, he knows what he's talking about and he absolutely was vested to make this the best wedding possible.

He played great music, had a great attitude, took control of the wedding party in a nice way. He's not bossy or pushy. Jamaal was one of the best values and investments of all the vendors we had.

Seriously, this guy is top shelf, one of the best. If he's available for your date, stop looking because you're not going to find someone better.

I already knew Jamaal would help to make our wedding special since I've known him for years prior to booking. He absolutely did not disappoint. Professional, helpful and timely. We met a month before the wedding to go over all of the steps, and it was a very pleasant experience for myself and family. Made us feel very comfortable that all of our needs would be handled and there wasn't anything to worry about on that tip. Day of the wedding he was there well before all of the guests arrived and it was a seamless setup. Although we only scheduled him for half of the time at the wedding, Jamaal didn't just up and leave as soon as the clock struck, he ensured that we were all setup to continue the rest of the wedding duration. As an added bonus, we have several "difficult" names that needed announcing and he was spot on with the pronunciation.

I would like to thank Jamaal again for his service to make our day super special, and would strongly recommend him to anyone looking to host an event or wedding.

Jamaal was the DJ for our wedding this August- I could not say enough about him! He is organized, detail oriented, responsive, and was receptive to everything my husband and I envisioned for the wedding. I have been to 3 weddings where he has been the DJ, and every one was different, but all fantasic. He really works with you as a couple on as much or as little as you want, and every single person commented on the music at our wedding and how amazing it was! He was professional, well dressed, and flexible during the day, and was completely organized and worked so well with the venue. He truly made the day what everyone remembers!

Jamaal from World Renown Entertainment is absolutely wonderful! He was the DJ for two of my friends' wedding in the years past. He is very responsive and creative. I love his music mixes and love that he doesn't just play straight from a playlist. He is a very skilled DJ who I would recommend to my other friends who are getting married. He made planning the reception so easy and he was very easy to work with and to communicate with.

Fantastic service, including good communication in our initial meeting and setting out the process and expectations to ensure a smooth day. Communication in the weeks leading up to the event was great and Jamaal was brilliant at including all specific requests and smaller details that we had in order to make our day that much better. Flexible to adjust on the spot as necessary when we were running slightly behind schedule on the day as well as knowing just the right songs to get everyone moving on the dance floor :). Thanks again! Ian and Kate

World Renown was great!! Jamaal was very professional and very responsive to all my emails, there was a lot of last minute changes and he handled it very well. For our wedding we had him play music for the ceremony and the reception. He was very accommodating when I requested him to play particular songs pre-ceremony. We were also very pleased with every song he played at the reception as well, kept people on the dance floor!! He's awesome!!

Jamaal came highly recommended from a friend of ours who is also a DJ. When my fiancé and I met him to talk about the wedding and type of music we were looking for, we quickly understood why he was recommended. He is professional, knows his music and is down to earth-someone you can easily talk to and get along with. Anyone planning a wedding can appreciate finding a vendor that makes you feel calm. :) We felt comfortable immediately and decided that day to contract with him.

We are the type of people that appreciate creative liberties so we gave Jamaal some information regarding what we were looking for but also explained that we would like for him to use his best judgment based off of his experience. He did not disappoint. Jamaal provided us with an outline to give him an understanding of the timeline for the day and was available for an onsite visit to make sure all questions regarding set up were answered well in advance of the wedding day. He also called the week before the wedding to go over pronunciation of names to be announced. :)

On the day of the wedding, he followed the timeline to a T and kept things moving along while keeping the dance floor alive...ties around the head, a "Dirty Dancing" lift and all. :) We had a blast and have only heard excellent compliments about the wedding. I would highly recommend Jamaal to anyone interested in a DJ who is as laid back, professional and knows how to please a crowd. He won't disappoint.
