A Touch Of Class DJ's
Ken was the DJ at my daughter's wedding. She did not want to do a lot of the traditional wedding activities and Ken was able to accommodate her every request. The music selection was exactly what they wanted and the folks at the reception danced all night! Ken and his crew are extremely professional to work with prior and during the event.
I had originally planned for an incredibly simple wedding, but last minute, it changed to something a lot bigger and fancier two weeks before my wedding date! I had an awesome venue with room for a dance floor, but no DJ. I was desperate, and looked everywhere for a great DJ with no luck. I saw A Touch Of Class on theknot.com, and they had great reviews, so I went on their website and filled out the "request more information form" and I received a call from Ken literally two minutes later. He was extremely helpful, especially considering that we had two weeks to get everything ready! He did everything possible to ensure that my last minute request was fulfilled!
A few days before the wedding, I spoke with Chris, who was my DJ, and he was extremely helpful. I had specific songs that I wanted to be played, and he made it happen. On the day of the wedding, he was very accommodating to our needs, making sure everything went smoothly. We had guests of all ages, and his song selections were great for everybody.
I would definitely recommend A Touch Of Class to anyone! Ken and Chris, thank you for taking me on last minute, and thank you for helping me make my wedding incredible!
CHRIS WAS GREAT - HE HAD A NUMBER OF GAMES THAT WE PLAYED - EVERYONE ENJOYED THEM - I HAD EXCELLENT FEEDBACK FROM THE FOLKS - COMMENTS LIKE BEST PARTY EVER, HOPE HE COMES BACK NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!

I am thrilled that everyone had a great time, but brides should know that this was a corporate party not a wedding. Most brides don't want games, but we will do what you want for your special day!
Ken was so easy to work with! He made sure on the day of our wedding that the uplighting was exactly as we wanted it before the guests entered the room. The room took my breath away! Throughout the whole process he was extremely responsive. Although we decided on a band instead of a DJ for our wedding, we would have picked him for our wedding if we had gone the DJ route! He does an amazing job and we can't recommend him enough!! Thank you so much for making our wedding day that much more special!!
we couldn't of been happier with the service everything was perfect!!
After lots of searching I found A Touch of Class DJ and was extremely impressed with their professionalism. Ken was very helpful in organizing all we wanted from a DJ with NO HIDDEN COSTS. He also has a great team of DJ's to entertain at the wedding. We had the opportunity to work with Chris as our DJ for the night and everything ran smoothly. The music selection was exactly what we asked for, the changing of events was flawless, and everyone had an amazing time. ATOCDJ work hard to make weddings special. Working with them was easy and stress free. I recommend them to everyone.
Ken was the MC for our wedding, and both he and his DJ were outstanding. We have used a few DJ's in the past, and finally found Ken for our most recent party a few years ago. He was great then, and is the best DJ we have found. We are so happy that we chose him again for our wedding - he was far more attentive than I could have imagined. Rather than wait for feedback, he actually came over to us several times throughout the night to make sure everything was going well, make sure our song requests were being played, and just generally ensure that we were having the best possible time - and we did! That level of attentiveness was something I could not have imagined, and we can't tell you how comforting it was to know that everything had been turned over to Ken, he was in charge, and we could relax and trust that everything would run smoothly. It wasn't something I expected - the other MC/DJ's we have used got lost in the music and running the show and forget about the hosts - which may be fine for a backyard barbecue but not for a wedding. Ken's dedication and attentiveness were truly special and difficult to put into words.
Ken and his DJ were perfect - like I mentioned, we have used a few before and have been very pleased. But Ken and A Touch of Class have set a new standard, and far exceed the other DJ's we have used in the past - they were great DJ's, but Ken and his team are so far beyond just "great" that it's hard to explain. His flexibility (even - literally - at the last minute!!), attentiveness and true desire to make our night perfect put him above all others - we are truly customers for life! Can't wait for him to host our next party - now we just need an excuse!!
Jim was a great Dj and played all the music, my wife and I requested. He did play "Africa" by Toto, completely through twice which is a terrible song, but I am more busting Jim's balls with this comment. That will be one of the things I look back on my wedding and laugh about years later. Other than that Jim was so professional and made it very apparent to us that he was there for my wife and I and no one else, when it came to the music selection. The dinner music was exactly what I was looking for and the dancing portion was great too. Thank you so much for our day! This company from start to finish was exceptional and I will be recommending you to anyone who asks about your services
I had a great experience working with A Touch Of Class DJs. Ken and his team were very responsive via email to both the planning and execution of my wedding music. My husband provided Chris with a pretty detailed play/do not play list and he followed it closely. Also he did a good job of running through the introductions with me before the wedding day to make sure he understood name pronunciations as well as family relationships. Great experience and value!
They were easy to work with, extremely professional, and provided a great party for our reception. We definitely recommend them!
Jim was excellent! My guests and myself had an amazing night and his knowledge and personable nature was key! I would highly recommend ATOC to anyone!
M.C. Ken was attentive, classy, and excellent with my guests. He played every song I wanted. He is lively, has an Excellent voice, personality, and makes the Bride comfortable with the big event.
I HIGHLY recommend A TOUCH OF CLASS.
IT IS BEYOND 5 STARS...
The one thing that I wanted at my reception was a full dance floor all night long and Ken most definitely delivered. His enthusiam is contagious and he was completely involved all night, being sure to check in with my husband and I to make sure everything was going exactly as we wanted. He was great and so easy to work with. He was totally flexible and was able to make changes on the fly - whether it was a follow the leader dance to get people on the floor, or altering the reception entrance announcements moments before they were made. I would absolutely recommend Ken and his ATOC crew to anyone looking to have a great, fun and involved reception.
My venue practically insisted that I choose Ken Cosco as my DJ/MC and they were right -- the event went incredibly smoothly and Ken was very professional, energetic and receptive to our preferences.
We are on the shy side and didn't want introductions or anything like that -- Ken struck a nice balance of respecting those wishes and making sure the event was still fun and a bit interactive for guests. For example, during our cake-cutting he had the audience clap for me and then my groom and whoever got the loudest clapping was to feed the other one first. And to give away our centerpieces, he put a coin under one person's wine glass at each table and whoever had it won the centerpiece. These kinds of things were perfect for us -- interactive, but not aggressive. He has tons of options that involve the guests much more, but the point is that if you tell him what you want, he will give it to you!
He played music for our ceremony, and did a great job of calming my nerves before we tied the knot and getting everything just right -- timing, volume, everything. He didn't have the songs I wanted in his DJ system, but it was so easy to get the mp3s to him and they sounded great on his system.
For the reception, he requested a list of songs we wanted played and didn't want played. I thought he would use them as guidelines, but he was actually great about making sure to play every single song I wanted that was available in his system -- so I highly recommend listing a lot of songs so they'll last through the night! That being said, he showed good judgement when it comes to what kind of music the guests seemed to be craving in general -- for example, it became clear through the night that our guests like 80's music a LOT -- Ken got that and played more and more Madonna and A-Ha through the night.
I would recommend Ken Cosco and A Touch of Class DJs -- they clearly know what they're doing and have the flexibility and experience to make your event what you want it to be.
A Touch of Class DJ's Not only met my expectations but went above and beyond them. The very first time I spoke with Ken I was blown away. He took the time to answer every question, provide recommendations from past clients, and worked with my budget. We had to change our date and venue and Ken worked with me without any problems. Throughout the planning process he was always readily accessible and available to answer any questions. The day of my wedding was exactly what we had planned. The ceremony and cocktail music were perfect and he kept the wedding organized and fun. People were dancing until the very last minute!! We have continued to receive phone calls asking who did our music. Everyone loved the music!! I would and will recommend Touch Of Class DJ's to everyone!!!
Ken was fantastic! I called last minute looking for a DJ. He was very accommodating and professional. Everyone had an amazing time. Great energy. I would definatley recommend Ken at A Touch of Class for any party! Thanks Ken!

I am thrilled the guests had a great time...FYI, for the viewers, this was a corporate holiday party not a wedding.
A Touch of Class was wonderful from start to finish. The owner, Ken, was wonderful to work with. He was very attentive and was always there to answer a question if I needed him. I highly recommend his businss for any future bride.
Ken was extremely attentive to every detail to make our daughter's wedding memorable and so enjoyable.
My family and friends have been using ATOC dJ's for many years. Ken is very professional and experienced. He is easy to work with and is prompt to respond to any questions. He has tons of energy and really knows how to get a crowd on the dance floor. He was a big part of making our wedding day beautiful, fun and stress free.
We were extremely pleased with Jim's DJ performance at our wedding. He did a fantastic job weaving in our particular music preferences during dinner and dancing portions of the evening. We received many comments and compliments from guests about the music selection over the evening, and how well the timing worked out for each song played. He was also very flexible with us and the event staff to assure the timing of everything worked smoothly.
Ken was also very accommodating during the contract creation process, was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and was clearly interested in making sure we were happy with our agreement.
One thing I want to mention for "needs improvement" is one suggestion for customer service improvement. ATOCDJ did not have most of the songs we requested to use during the ceremony and reception, and asked us to provide them via CD or .mp3 files. Granted, no DJ service can be expected to have ALL possible songs, but the way it happened was a little disappointing. We sent in our Factsheet 3 weeks ahead of the wedding date, and it wasn't reviewed until 5 days prior to the wedding. The fact that we had to scramble and purchase songs from iTunes (albeit, they are only $0.99) days before the wedding, seemed like an added stress that could have been avoided. Maybe it would be useful for ATOCDJ to have a more visible policy about what happens when music selections aren't available, or they review Factsheet's once they receive them to help alleviate any last minute stress.
I would HIGHLY recommend A Touch of Class DJ's! The service was fantastic! The guests could not stop talking about how much fun they had even 3 weeks after the wedding! They personalized the ceremony and reception for my husband and I and changed things last minute as I asked them to with ease. To see my guests having so much fun; getting so involved in the reception and on the dance floor made this a worth while value. If I need to schedule another event, I will definitely be scheduling it with A Touch of Class!
A Touch of Class DJ's are truly the best of the best. Ken and his staff are extremely courteous, friendly and were there for me any time I had a question. On the day of our wedding we had Chris as our MC and he was terrific. The music quality was great and all of our guest said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. I would highly recommend A Touch Of Class DJ's!
Overall I was very happy with ATOCDJ, Chris was great! I had a smaller wedding, with mixed generations, and a lot of times the dance floor was empty, however, this could have been due to my guests just not enjoying dancing, and not the music played.
Ken Cosco more than exceeded our expectations! He was incredibly professional, responsive, and he is a great communicator. He was behind the scenes throughout our entire wedding, putting forth a heroic effort to ensure everything went perfectly. All the while, he was keeping the music going and the energy high on the dance floor, so that everyone at our wedding was having a fantastic time. I could not recommend, or even imagine, a better DJ for anyone's wedding!!!

GREAT DJ!!!! Our DJ was incredible for our wedding. Kept the entire dance floor full and played everything we wanted and was very flexible with what we wanted. He made sure that we were happy and that was his main concern. I would highly recommend them to anyone who asked. Thanks again
Ken Cosco at A Touch of Class DJ's is great. He is so enthusiastic it is infectious. Every aspect of our relationship with him was great, he always got back to us right away, he met with us a couple times to go over the details, and accommodated all of our requests. He was our MC and we had Chris as our DJ. Together, they made the reception so much fun. There was just enough interaction to get people involved without being annoying. And the dance floor was packed all night.
These guys were great. They provided a DJ and an MC to keep things organized. Most of my family memebers are not big on dancing, including myself and my husband, but they managed to keep the dance floor packed anyway with clever games and incentives to get people out there, having a good time. I even found myself out on the floor for more than the required bride/groom dances, which I NEVER thought would happen. The MC was extremely friendly and had a lot of useful tips on how things should be done to avoid any possible awkward moments or dangerous things. Things I never would have thought of, really, like how to carefully toss my bouqet to avoid hitting the lights on the ceiling, causing it to fall right behind me and possibly have girls crashing into me in their scramble for the bouqet. He gave options for what mood we wanted for our entry and for the party itself, to suit our intended feel for the reception. Before the wedding, he went over everything in great detail to make sure he had a good idea of what was wanted and to check on any songs I requested that they may not have so that they could get them before the day arrived. He was very very friendly and I would recommend this company to anyone. Neither my husband nor I are very big party people and we were very nervous about how it would go but we both were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves having a lot of fun. I heard several of my family members talking about how they were definitely gonna call A Touch of Class for their next big party. I think that'd be a good idea.
I also recommend A TOUCH OF CLASS DJ
Jim Martin was very kind and accommodating to us, the live musicians, when we worked together at the Warwick Country Club. We always appreciate it when DJ's are knowledgeable and respectful to the live musicians. They helped keep things running smoothly.
