Johnny Budz & Lucas Prata are a dream team! My wedding was amazing thanks to them!
Elite Sound is reliable, professional, responsive, helpful, friendly, and most of all, extremely talented! There was never a moment when the dance floor was not packed with people.
We also got the photo booth, which I highly recommend.
I had the pleasure of having my wedding DJed by Jay from Elite Sound Entertainment. Jay was absolutely amazing from the beginning to the end. He is very careful to make sure he gets all the little details right so your day is perfect. Jay was also excellent at reading the crowd and because of this our dance floor was PACKED the entire night!!! Everyone had a blast and at the end of the night my guests were singing Jay's praises. We also had a monogram which was beautiful!! I am so happy I hired Jay!
We could not have asked for a better DJ! DJ Joe was fantastic at our wedding on May 9, 2014. All of our guests said the same. Along with the selections we chose, he picked out some of his own, which were great and played all of the guests' requests. Everyone was dancing the entire time and that is exactly what we wanted! We also appreciated the fact that if we had any questions before the wedding, he responded right away. Thank you, Joe, for everything!
One of my few jobs during the wedding planning process was to pick a DJ. I couldn't have made a more perfect choice. After I read a million 5 star reviews of Jay on different sites, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. My wife and I met him and immediately knew we wanted him to be a part of the wedding. Jay is extremely helpful, professional, personable, and most importantly, he takes his job seriously. He was by far the most responsive vendor we had, and when you’re planning a wedding there are so many moving parts that having someone who is always going to get right back to you is invaluable. When it came down to the wedding day, Jay was on point, everyone who spoke with him loved him, everyone complimented the music, everyone had a great time, and Jay made sure to communicate and make sure we were on the same page throughout the night. Jay also worked with an assistant, Carmine, who was equally as professional and top notch. My wife and I seriously could not be happier with the way everything turned out. Don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment for your wedding.
Jay and the entire team at Elite Sound Entertainment were all so amazing to work with! They provided us with both cocktail and reception music for our wedding, amber uplighting, gobo and photo montages. Everything was just perfectly executed. Our first dance we took advantage of the dancing on the clouds special effects they offer and it was such a magical moment for us. Then Jay kept the party rocking all night long with a great mix of songs from different genres. We didn't even request any songs because we had full confidence in Jay from the beginning. We also requested 3 montages; for the father/daughter dance, the mother/son dance and for the two of us growing up/together. Debbie was so accomodating and made the montages perfect for us so thanks again Debbie! I will definitely recommend you to everyone I know so I can get a chance to dance to your mixes again.
We used Joe from Elite Sound for our outdoor August wedding.
Here's why Joe and Elite are awesome to work with!
- Care and Patience: Joe took the time to make things perfect. He was truly interested at our final meeting - from perfecting pronunciations of last names to making great suggestions. On the day of, he stepped up and organized everybody for the intros. He induced order without being too aggressive. As a result, the first half hour of our weddings (intro's, speeches, dances) was perfectly paced and void of any hiccups.
- Trustworthy: While outdoor tented weddings are not the norm, Elite's set up was completely taken care of with our venue host - with no interruptions to our family or bridal party. The lighting was set up perfectly, as well (and I'm pretty picky with aesthetics).
- Reliable: Elite showed up on time and totally prepared. No issues. They also avoided what we didn't want to hear, and were sure to play songs we discussed as being important to us.
- Fun: Our guests were on the dance floors the ENTIRE night. Joe adapted the music to make sure the party never stopped and the crowd really responded.
- Tasteful: He kept the party paced without being too aggressive or over-involved. No bad music. No cheesiness.
In short - these guys are great!
There are wedding DJs and then there is Johnny Budz and Elite Sounds Entertainment. We first heard
Johnny spin at a friends wedding and knew immediately he was the guy we needed for our own wedding. From start to finish you will not find a more professional and friendly group of people to work with. They turned our wedding, into a party. Johnny had the dance floor going for 5 straight hours and now, three days later, still have people talking about what an amazing time it was.
Jay G and Elite Sound Entertainment was the best choice I could ever make to ensure we had the best music at our wedding. Jay was amazing, constantly in contact asking if we were doing okay and had any special requests and most importantly kept the dancefloor packed all night long! We were so lucky to have such a great DJ for our special day. Thanks Jay and Elite Sound Entertainment!
Two words: JOE ROCKS! We are thrilled to have hired Elite Sound Entertainment for our wedding. Joe knew what songs to play, the volume to play them at, and how to get people out of their seats! That dance floor was FULL! He doesn’t over-emcee and do anything cheesy—he jumped in at the right times and truly made some incredible dance mixes. We had a special request to add in Croatian music for my husband’s family and he did so perfectly! Our 70 year old family members were up dancing and singing along. It was incredible! We also booked the photo booth through Elite Sound and it was one of the highlights of the evening. Elite made sure everything was set up prior to our guests arriving and they had hilarious props. Worth every penny! One thing that really stuck out to us was that Joe was so helpful in coming over to us and letting us know the format of the reception and what to expect next. We knew where to be at the right time and he really blew us away with how hands-on he was. It was like we had known him forever and he made us feel so comfortable! BOOK WITH ELITE!! They are truly the best!
DJ Jay G was amazing to work with! He rocked our wedding and had the dance floor packed all night. He made my wedding. Both the young and the old are still talking about how much fun they had. He responded to all our messages quickly no matter the time of day! He always made us feel comfortable from the start and accommodated all of our needs and our budget. I would most certainly recommend him and Elite Sound, and I hope to be a guest at another wedding where he is the DJ!
I want to thank Elite Sound Entertainment and DJ Joe P for the OUTSTANDING job they did for our wedding on 8/9/2014!!! Joe was hands down the easiest person to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. He not only was flexible in terms of meetings and appointments, but also made suggestions on song choices based on our music taste, and went above and beyond to make sure our photo montage and step and repeat were completed in time. Joe was super organized from the beginning, and made sure that our wedding ROCKED the whole night! I usually never write reviews, but Joe P and Elite Sound Entertainment are by far the best DJ's EVER, and DO NOT DISAPPOINT! I still have people telling me that I had the best music ever at my wedding! Thank you so much Joe and Elite Sound Entertainment!!!
Being in the event services industry myself, I've attended many events and wedding expos throughout the state. I've come across and met many DJ companies and its owners. Once I met Johnny Budz at a live event, I knew Elite Sound were top notch and had to have them for my wedding. They did not disappoint. From the office manager, Debbie, to DJ Steve M and to the MC Mike M, they were all so easy to work with and provided the best service and entertainment I could have ever asked for. It's been almost 2 weeks since the wedding has passed and guests are still talking about how good the Djs were. Thanks Elite Sound Entertainment!!! Will definitely recommend!!!
We are very happy we picked DJ Danny Gee to be our wedding DJ. During our first meeting, he was very professional and knowledgeable. He answered all of our questions and walked us through a lot of key points. The Elite sound website/music selection system was very helpful. We had conference calls a couple weeks before the actual date, he was very detail oriented and helped us to finalize all the last minute details. We did a Chinese tea ceremony for the wedding and he was able find music that was perfectly suited for that portion. He was able to take what we wanted and put in into action. We highly recommend Elite Sound/ and Danny Gee, you can't go wrong.
Elite Sound Entertainment and Joe P did an unbelievable job at our wedding. Killed it! We had a mix of friends and family and Joe P had everyone on the dance floor from the first song until the end of the night. We had multiple people ask us for his contact information during and after the wedding.
Thanks again Joe P!
Absolutely Awesome !!! DJ Jay G and Elite Sound Entertainment staff did an amazing work. 100% of our guests were on the dance floor, ALL night long and they keep talking how great the music was. Thank you again for every thing. We loved it ! DJ Jay, You Rock !
Tout simplement exceptionnel !!!!!! Soirée inoubliable ! Elle restera gravée dans nos mémoires, grâce au professionnalisme et la disponibilité de notre DJ. Une expérience simplifiée malgré les 6000 km qui nous séparaient. Merci pour tout.
DJ Johnny Budz and Lucas exceeded all of our expectations for our wedding. It was the perfect mix of all genres of music, all 345 of our guest cannot stop talking about how perfect our music was. My husband and I, and all of our guests, were on the dance floor from the very beginning to the very end when the lights came on, it was one great song after another. Too much fun! I highly reccomend them to everyone who wants a wedding with non-stop energy!
When we first started planning our wedding, we knew right away that having the perfect DJ was very important. I wanted to make that our guests would be up dancing (a fear of mine that no one would be) and enjoying themselves throughout the evening. I asked recent brides that I knew who had gotten married if they could recommend a DJ. When I heard about Elite Sound, I was also told that I must request Jay-G. I called that week to make an appointment and we met with Jay a few days later. At our first meeting, he was extremely welcoming, and asked us many questions about what kinds of music we liked. He put some on to allow us to hear some music samples, and even showed us what our venue would look like with pink lighting That night, we booked him on the spot. He was the FIRST and ONLY DJ that we met with. Throughout the planning, we set up our (easy online) planner with must play music, special requests, and do not play music. When we met with Jay for our final meeting, he went over everything on our planner with us, and even let us add-on extra must plays. He asked us what we thought of certain mixes, exactly how we wanted our entrance song, and other specifics of our event. When we left his office that day, he made me even more excited for my wedding. On our wedding day, when we arrived at our venue, Jay made sure that everything was set and we were all ready to party. Well we sure did party! The entire night the dance floor was filled with people, even up until the very last minute of the night. Jay played the BEST variety of music. Guests even came up to me to tell me how great he was. At our initial meeting we discussed how much we loved the 80’s and Jay sure did remember! I, as the bride, did not want to stop dancing! I was having way too much fun. My feet were killing me days after, but it was WORTH it. Jay was AMAZING. Even throughout the night, he kept checking in with us to make sure that we were ok, and kept us informed with what would be going on next. It was good to know that we had a very caring DJ, who worried about us along with our guest. I am extremely grateful that I was given the recommendation, as I will also pass along to future brides. Elite Sounds made our wedding incredibly MEMORABLE. I really wish I could throw another wedding just so I can party with Jay-G again!
I would highly recommend DJ Jay G from Elite Sound Entertainment! After meeting with 8 DJs, we knew right away that Jay was the right fit for our wedding. We were impressed by his professionalism and focus on playing to the crowd. Jay was so easy to work with and was so knowledgeable, professional, and proved to be great at what he does. He did an excellent job selecting a variety of music to keep our dance floor packed all night long! We have since received many compliments about how fun our wedding was, and we cannot thank DJ Jay G and Elite Sound Entertainment enough for helping to make our reception such a perfect event!
We are so happy with everything. Danny and Vinnie were awesome. Everyone raved about the DJ and our music. We had some specific requests and they were able to execute all of them. They came highly recommended and we highly recommend them as well!
Dave Mondo and the Elite Sound Staff were extremely professional and great to work with. Dave was always available if we had any questions and eased our concerns. He responded back to our questions quickly. Everything went flawlessly during the ceremony and reception. Our guests keep talking about how great the music was! The dance floor was full all night. We would recommend Elite Sound to any of our friends…they are the best! Thank you for everything!
