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 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.

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!!

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

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.

Jamaal was amazing! We already knew this going in because he DJ'd our friends wedding so we knew from that moment we wanted him at ours. He was able to keep everyone on the dance floors the whole night and played to a diverse crowd! We added in the Shoe Game at the last minute and he rolled with the punches and adjusted the timeline on the fly to accommodate us. Jamaal was extremely detail oriented and went over with us multiple times how to pronounce everyones first and last name to make sure it was perfect. Thank you Jamaal for everything!

DJ Jamaal of World Renown Entertainment made our wedding so much fun! We first saw DJ Jamaal perform at my cousin’s wedding so we were already familiar with his work. He’s such a nice person & was very patient with us as we planned our music playlist. He also kept us on schedule and partnered directly with our hotel coordinator for all logistics which saved us a lot of time and stress. Our guests are still commenting about how the dance floor stayed crowded from the first song to the last song. We highly recommend DJ Jamaal if you are looking for a reliable, fun, & talented DJ in the DMV—you won’t be disappointed!

Jamaal was fantastic! My reception was at the Mayflower hotel in Washington, DC and he complimented it well. His music choices were amazing and he kept things flowing. He is very organized and of course opened to song suggestions. He wore a suit which I greatly appreciated. I would definitely booked them for your wedding reception.

Jamaal was absolutely brilliant. Everything we could have wished for in our DJ on our special day. Jamaal took time to liaise directly with us in regards to :

Songs not to play (so people dont ask for them to be played :) )
Songs we absolutely want to play
Coacktail hour songs
Reception songs

He was so prepared it made us not worry about the timing of everything. Jamaal provided us with a sample time line that we could adapt. We then sent this on to our photographer, venue planner and our DJ (Jamaal). All 3 liaised in regards to time line and if it made sense. They would suggest things here and there and it just ran absolutely perfectly. We could not have asked for a better DJ on the day. All of our guests said how amazing the songs were. All we did was provide a small sample of the songs we like and the rest was filled in by Jamaal. Andrea (my wife :) and I were dancing the night away with our guests.

Oh and a sneak peak - for our mother groom dance - my mother would always laugh at the hip hop/ RNB songs I would listen to with her on the way to school, that I asked Jamaal if he would be able to play the song (before all the swear words) with the part of the song my mum always remembered, he played it perfectly and faded it out straight into our van morrison song! Unbelievable and a great moment on the night!

Highly recommended and once again - THANK YOU Jamaal you are a legend!!!
