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 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.

Jamaal was awesome!!!!! I found a newly released song two days before the wedding and I wanted to use it instead of a song I had chosen earlier to walk down the aisle to. Jamaal's response was sure no problem, let me download the song, and he also told me to change what ever else I wanted.
He found a specific version of song my now Mother in law wanted for the Mother- Son dance.
Very professional, respectful, was willing to help our Wedding run as smoothly as possible, and made it very enjoyable for all ages.
I would use World Renown again for any function.

Thank You,
Tina and Nathaniel Locke

We used Jamaal for our wedding and I have to say, EVERYONE (including my granny and my friends) was dancing the second he started playing music. I don't think the floor emptied until they kicked us out.

All my guests told me they have never been to a wedding where there was so much great music & dancing. He played at a great level & had tons of great selections, He played all our requested songs, and was so professional when announcing all the names/dances/cake. My friends/fam are what we like to call, Party Animals, and I am so happy we had lots of fun, happy music to help celebrate & accentuate our day! He also was so great about us adding father/daughter & mother/son dances at the LAST second (seriously, last second)

Thank you Jamaal! Anyone would be lucky to have you play at their wedding.

I was lucky enough to experience World Renown's work firsthand as I was a groomsmen at one of my best friends' wedding last year and Jamaal was the DJ. I was very impressed with his professionalism; despite having ethnic and difficult names to pronounce Jamaal took the time to learn them all and executed the introductions flawlessly. He also correctly matched up 7 different entrance songs to each respective couple. The dance floor was always packed, the music was on point and he handled the MC responsibilities fluidly.

When it came to my own wedding hiring Jamaal was a simple decision. I didn't even bother entertaining other vendors given my previous exposure to his work and unbelievable rate. We had a total of 17 members to our bridal party and Jamaal nailed the introductions as expected. We changed it up on him last minute and added a father-daughter and mother-son dance via text message on the way to the reception and he didn't even bat an eye. Given our Middle Eastern background we had to play some Arabic music and Jamaal worked with us to select very dance-able tracks. I was worried that our American guests wouldn't have a good time but to my surprise the dance floor was packed non stop. He then transitioned to Top 40/EDM as we requested and the party NEVER stopped.

Jamaal is an asset to any event and we are eternally grateful for his efforts in making our occasion memorable. Make the search for a wedding DJ easy and give him a call.

Jamaal was amazing. I was a bit indecisive up to the wedding and requested a few last minute changes. He was so flexible and patient and was able to pull everything together. He even helped my family in pulling off a few surprises of their own! He was all around amazing. We received multiple compliments during and after the wedding on how good and fun our DJ was.
I strongly recommend Jamaal to anyone looking for a DJ! TWO THUMBS UP!!!

Jamaal was a wonderful DJ for our wedding. He was very flexible with how we wanted the night to go and the music that we wanted to hear. He was very professional, on time, and a good price for DJs in the area. He really showed that it was important that our reception night went as my wife and I had planned and he followed through with the idea that we had imagined. While some receptions require a DJ who is very "outgoing", that is not what we had planned. Jamaal did not "steal the show" from us and allowed everyone to have a great time.

Jamaal was an absolute pleasure to work with as the DJ for our wedding. He was extremely professional and responded to emails usually within 24 hours, making the process of preparing the music for our wedding as easy as could be. He was also able to find some obsure songs for our ceremony and reception and play them as we had hoped. On the day of, Jamaal's timing was perfect- everything was on cue. Additionally, he was able to get our diverse guests of various ages, styles, countries, and ethnicities all dancing!. My only wish was that we had him (and the wedding night) for longer because I would have loved to have danced more!

World Renown provided EXEPTIONAL service to us for our wedding. I truly think the DJ can make or break the event. We went to a wedding the week before which had a number of the same guests that were at our wedding however they used a different dj service and hardly anybody was on the dance floor. The vibe of the room just wasnt as lively or fun but, thanks to Jamaal Boticelli who DJ'd our wedding, our night was just perfect. Music was top of the line, his professionalism, punctuality, response time were all impeccable and his timing and presentation of everything was exeptional! So grateful to World Renown for making our night magical!

Jamaal recently provided DJ services for my wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Jamaal. I asked to meet him two times before my wedding day and he happily obliged. He responded to my e-mails and phone calls in a prompt manner. He was at all times courteous and professional and was incredibly easy to work with. He understood everything that I was looking for in a DJ. Most importantly, the music he provided was awesome and exactly what I wanted for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. The dance floor was packed ALL NIGHT LONG. The guests who attended my wedding could not stop talking about how great the DJ was and how the music he played was perfect. Do yourself a favor and hire Jamaal. You will not be disappointed at all!

Jamaal was wonderful to work with from start to finish! He kept in contact with us before the wedding, letting us know exactly what we needed to provide him with and when. He was also more than patient in working with us, as we tended to do everything last minute. As for the night of the wedding, he exceeding all expectations. He was able to transition the music from the ceremony to the reception smoothly. Even between playing songs of completely different genres, the music flowed nicely. Everyone was dancing, singing along, and having a great time all night! I honestly couldn't have asked for a better dj for our wedding!

Jamaal was wonderful and he wants your wedding to be perfect. He constantly reminded us “It’s your wedding” because he wants nothing more than for you to have the best experience possible. He was consistent with the music we chose, and helped make everything flow. He was very accommodating and withstood the constant barrage of our family asking him to play a bunch of “family tradition” songs. He went out of his way to help create the best song and time lengths for some less traditional music our family wanted. He was accommodative, but also stuck with the plan that we created with him which is important when you need to keep things moving during a wedding. He was very open with what he has seen work and not work in the past based upon his extensive experience. We spoke with him several times before the wedding to discuss how we wanted the evening to go, timelines, and which songs we definitely did and did not want played.

The wedding went off without a hitch and Jamaal was a huge part of bringing everything together. He is very conscious of everyone’s time, money and expectations. His mantra of “It’s your wedding” shows what kind of person he is and what he wants to do for you.

I would HIGHLY recommend Jamaal and World Renown Entertainment to anyone having a wedding or other special event.

Thanks Jamaal!

From the beginning of setting up our services with Jamaal it was an ease. He was able to travel close to us to meet and made it very clear what is included in his services and what he would need from us. He was able to provide fantastic service with minimal conversations which was much appreciated given all the things that you need to think about when planning a wedding.

We had Jamaal do all of the introductions for the wedding and it went perfectly with no complcations with names songs or anything. As far as the wedding music he hit exactly what we were looking for. He kept people on the dance floor the whole night, including us, and that is the most important thing really.

We appreciate the ease of service and the quality of what was provided and I absolutely suggest using him in your event.

World Renown and Jamaal did a fabulous job at our wedding in September. He was adaptable and responsive to any and all of our requests. He provided music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and helped make our wedding absolutely perfect. We gave some general ideas of the types of music that we liked and disliked, and it felt like he was reading our minds during the entire event- the dance floor was never empty!

Since our wedding we have since recommended his services to my company, where he DJed our work holiday party and another friend who decided to use him for their wedding on Dec 28th.

I would highly recommend World Renown and intend on using his services anytime I need music to liven up an event!!

Jamaal was amazing. Super flexible and creative and just a joy to work with. We requested a few specific songs and types of music and jamaal got them immediately even if they weren't already in world renown's extensive catalogue. We had a friend serve as the emcee and jamaal walked him through using the cordless mic etc. im also quite sure jamaal would have served In this capacity extremely well. Finally, although jamaal had not played an event at our venue before, he communicated with their staff effectively and far in advance to make sure that he had all the equipment needed to have excellent sound. People loved the wedding and the music and so did we. We couldn't be more happy with the service provided by World Renown.

World Renown made our wedding day so energetic and fun for all the guests. Jamaal was very flexible during the planning process and let us plan almost the entire playlist - we love music and knew exactly what songs we wanted played. He played our songs we wanted and took some requests from our guests. He blended oldies with new songs perfectly so that everyone had a fun night on the dance floor. In fact, once the dance floor opened, people never left! Every time I looked over, there were a ton of guests dancing and having the best time! Jamaal made our day extra special and gave us exactly what we wanted! He has a very laid back personality but is also highly professional - and is not at all cheesy! You cannot find a better quality DJ and his prices are very reasonable! I would DEFINITELY recommend World Renown to any new bride!

He took requests before and during the event, and was able to read what type of music my guests wanted to hear. Absolutely perfect and more than affordable!

Jamal from World Renown is a DJ that just gets it! From our meeting, he was able to get a complete feel for what we wanted and how the night should go. He nailed it! Everything from pronouncing the names correctly to improvised music selections, he did a fabulous job pulling everything together and making it a memorable night. Jamal did an excellent job feeling the audience and tailoring his play list to fit. He was able to get guests who normally don't dance out on the dance floor. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. His timing was also critical for a choreographed introduction. We absolutely recommend Jamal and can't thank him enough for being part of our special day.

If you want them to play a certain song/genera and they don't have it in there current library, rest assured they will have it for you. I would definitely use their services again.

We really enjoyed our experience with World Renown. Jamaal was extremely professional. He not only played music for our reception, but for our wedding too. He made the selection of music very easy with lengthy music list he provided and the willingness to get any songs we requested that he might not have had.
I have been to many weddings where the bride and groom had to talk to their DJ about what they were playing instead of enjoying their own reception. This was not the case at all with World Renown. He kept our guest dancing the entire night.
We were so impressed with World Renown that we recommended Jamaal to a friend at work and she had him DJ her wedding too.
