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!
DJ Jay-G was truly amazing throughout our entire wedding planning. He was easy to talk to, made great suggestions, and knew exactly what we were looking for. The night of our wedding he had every single person on the dance floor the ENTIRE NIGHT! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ!!!!! We would recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to anyone, especially DJ Jay-G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DJ Jay G was amazing at my wedding and i would recommend him in a heart beat.. He was prompt professional and read the crowd like no other dj I have ever seen. My wife and I were extremely pleased with the outcome, we even had guests coming up to us throughout the night telling us how great our dj was.. enough said!!
All I can say AMAZING!!!! Jay G was absolutely the best DJ we have ever experienced. He was professional, reliable and understanding to our every need. He always got back to us when we had a question, was able to get special music for our Italian family members and most importantly made us feel comfortable with out music selections. We trusted him from the first day we met him and knew that he would do a fantastic job. I can't stop looking at the videos that people have been sending us with Jay G announcing our grand entrance. He announced us with such enthusiasm that it gives me chills! He had the dance floor packed the ENTIRE evening....even our older family and friends were up on that dance floor. We highly recommend Jay G and the rest of the Elite Sound Entertainment staff. Thank you Jay G for giving us the most INCREDIBLE night of our lives and we will most DEFINITELY be telling ALL of our friends about you!
The minute I met DJ Jay G from Elite Sound, I knew he would be the one that would hire! We had an immediately connection with music! Not only is he super professional and accommodating, but he truly listened to what I wanted (and want I didn’t want) and made it absolutely work! He incorporated all the genres I had asked for: Latin (Salsa, Merengue and especially Bacahata), Portuguese and the American top 40! Needless to say, the music selection and mixes were AWESOME! Everyone was on dance floor, including the groom, who doesn’t usually dance! It was an absolutely amazing night! He is a music genius and truly enjoys what he does! He even attempted to speak Portuguese to make my family feel more at ease! Thank you Jay G, you are the best! I wholeheartedly recommend DJ Jay G and the Elite Sound Entertainment Team to host any event! You will not be disappointed! P.S. The lighting package is a plus! Totally recommend it! Makes such a difference!
A wedding is a once in a lifetime event! There is so much planning and time that goes into just one day. The two most important parts to this day is your venue and music! I had one goal in mind for our special day, and that was to throw a party everyone could remember !!! Johnny Budz, and elite sounds entertainment did just that. Everything from there professionalism to his music selection was great ! I woke up the next morning to 42 messages of everyone telling me how awesome the DJ, MC, lighting ,and music were. Elite Sounds entertainment is hands down the best company in the NY & NJ area !!!!!! I have nothing but great things to say and will always 100% recommend them to anyone who is hosing an event!!!!!
Elite sound provided my lighting, Décor, and walking on clouds affect (dry ice machine) and words cannot express my gratitude and satisfaction. Danny Gee was my DJ and Emcee for my; Ceremony, Cocktail hour, and Reception and his level of service were nothing short of outstanding. I have to admit I was a little nervous and hesitate in the beginning being from an African American descent but after our first meeting I knew he would be my first choice for my special day. I had a few more DJ showcases and interviews thereafter, but I was comfortable with saying my mind was already set with working with Danny. So we choose Danny and Elite sound. Pricing were fair and warranted for the level of service provided. There was a sense of personal connection and assurance throughout the planning. Technology was a factor and guidance Danny provided was excellent. Danny was flexible with my work schedule and meeting locations. Now onto my reception.. the dance floor was packed from our grand entrance until dinner. We actually had to tone it down so dinner can be served. There were a few hiccups at my wedding which could have caused a major downturn, but Danny bounce the crowd right back into the party mood and we continue to party the night away. There is nothing but gratitude I have for Danny, he is a night saver and my DJ for life.
Thanks Danny and Elite Sound for making my wedding a night to remember.
Elite Sound Entertainment was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. They were very flexible and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. They were also very helpful when it came to planning the details of our event. Joe Paolillo was the main DJ at our event. He did a fabulous job! All of our guests were raving about the music played at our wedding. He kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. He kept in mind the various ages of our guests and played songs that all age groups would enjoy. We would highly recommend Elite Sound Entertainment. We were so happy to have worked with them!
DJ Joe P was amazing!! He was so awesome with planning everything and listening to what we wanted and making it perfect! I asked for a special looping for walking down the aisle and he executed it perfectly! We also asked him to shorten our first dance song and he got it to us early so we could practice dancing to it! He listened to what we said we like and he mixed both our tastes in and still keeping in mind his total audience! He made sure to keep the party going and tone it down during dinner and such! He was so nice and full of energy! He really was the best choice for us!! He fit in perfect with my husband and he got right off the bat what my husband wanted! They brought amazing lights and up lighted the room the perfect hue! Our guests danced and my husband and I danced the entire night!! DJ Joe P made our night perfect from the ceremony to the last dance he executed our night without a flaw! They really were worth every penny and more and I could never recommend them enough!! Thank you Joe for making our night PERFECT and AMAZING!!!
Thank you for everything that you and your staff did for both john and i. You were absolutely amazing from day one. Thank you for dealing with my endless emails and ridiculous questions and thank you for listening and always making us feel special. You rocked the house the other night and everyone is raving about how good the dj was. Everything was perfect and everything we had dreamed of, and you made that happen. Thank you for traveling such a long distance as well. Lucas Prata was amazing as well, he worked the room and made everyone feel comfortable. We love you all and can't wait until you do our next event.
DJ Dave Mondo gave us the wedding we dreamed of!!!! From the day we met him until the wedding night, he made us feel comfortable and made the entire process completely personal. The night itself was flawless and my husband and I have heard repeatedly from friends and family that it was the best wedding music they've ever heard!
We cannot say enough how happy we were with the Jay G. He was such a pleasure to work with. He was professional, accommodating, and alot of fun to work with and have at the wedding. He had the dance floor packed starting with the 1st song! We felt so comfortable having him as our DJ and then he just went and EXCEEDED our expectations! And ALL our guests loved him too! My husband and I, both, HIGHLY recommend Jay for anyone having a wedding!
Johnny Budz and his crew were absolutely AMAZINGGG!!!! Johnny pumped our entrance with so much energy it set the tone for the whole night! We had all 280 guests out of their seats dancing all night long! He seamlessly combined my husbands cultural music into the dance sets keeping everyone moving. The photo booth was an absolute hit and the live drummer added such an awesome element to the whole vibe of the night. I've never seen a wedding with that many people packing the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG! Even at our 2 hour after party he had the whole crowd up and dancing until 2am. Without a doubt the best night of my life and Elite Sound took it to a whole nother level!!!! We couldn't be any happier and would DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone who is looking to throw the best wedding around!
We chose Elite Sound for our 10/11/14 wedding and we are so happy we did! We had Joe P. as our DJ and he was amazing. Our guests had the best time and everyone was up dancing from the beginning of the night right up until the end. Joe is extremely easy to work with and passionate about his work. He totally understood who we were, what we wanted and knew exactly what music to play for our crowd and the guests loved it. Our entire experience with Joe and Elite Sound was only positive. We highly recommend them!

Mc Charlie cavallo and Elite sound entertainment: Where could i possibly begin ... because of you, our wedding at the Westmont country club 10/4 was absolutely AMAZING!!

You not only played an amazing variety and mix of music, you also created a night club atmosphere with a grand ball experience!

The light show was awesome, the beats were on point..and the photo booth you provided was an absolute hit!! Johnny Budz, I cannot thank you enough for a perfect wedding...My wife and I wish there was enough words to express our true gratefulness! ELITE SOUND ENTERTAINMENT WITHOUT A DOUBT IS THE TRI-STATES PREMIRE DJ/ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY! p.s the 3 string musicians you provided to play during our ceremony and cocktail hour added pure class and elegance . Thank you my friend!!!
I think every girl dreams about their wedding day, hoping it will be perfect and a day she won’t ever forget. I can tell you that I got that absolutely perfect day and it was in large part to Dave Mondo (DJ), Joe P. (MC) and the rest of the crew at Elite Sound Entertainment. From our very first meeting with Dave, we knew we had found an amazing DJ. Dave put us at ease and knew how to make our wedding perfect with details we never even thought about ourselves. We walked out of that first meeting with a signed contract, having not met with any other DJs (something we swore we would never do), and just knew we had done the right thing. Working with Dave was so easy, something every bride and groom will appreciate during the planning stages. The music selections, lighting, photo booth…everything came together seamlessly and ended with a wedding unlike anything I could have imagined!
Our MC, Joe P., was awesome. He executed everything flawlessly, kept things upbeat and had our guests on their feet all night. Dave also worked with our parents, unbeknownst to us, to plan a surprise for us during the wedding that was so much fun and such a hit with our guests. My parents told me how wonderful and easy he was to work with and how much he helped in creating a lasting memory for us. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how great Debbie, the office manager, was to work with. She was such a pleasure to interact with, very responsive and helpful, and just great to work with overall.
I can’t wait to plan another big event just so I have an excuse to book Dave and Elite Sound Entertainment!! I can promise you, booking them for your event will be the greatest thing you can do to ensure you have an outstanding party!
Thank you Dave, Joe P., and the rest of the crew at Elite who helped to make our wedding perfect from start to finish and one we truly will never forget!! You are the best!!!!
We truly had the greatest night of our lives with the help of Danny Gee. He is awesome!! Our dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone had a blast. Danny played just the right amount of traditional Italian songs, which was great. We didn't really give that many "must play" songs, only a few, because we trusted Danny to play what he felt would be good. He nailed it. Danny was great to work with, easily reachable and he got to know my husband and I as a couple and understood what kind of music we were into. He took extra time to get to know our entrance song, which was different type of song than most people use, which we really appreciated. On top of keeping the dance party going, the lighting was perfect and the set up was very elegant and worked well in the reception room. I can't stress enough how awesome Danny Gee is and I would wholeheartedly love to work with Danny/Elite Sound again.
