John is extremely professional and was amazing to work with! John had done a friend’s wedding a year earlier and did such a wonderful job that we decided to go with him as well. I loved how responsive he was to everything, and I was so beyond pleased with all of the music and how everything went and looked! He got exactly what we wanted with the music and completely exceeded all our expectations! I LOVED the photo booth and all its props, and all of the lighting was perfect! John was very organized, friendly, personable, and down to earth – definitely not one of those loud obnoxious DJs who loves to hear themselves talk and thinks the night is all about them! He made sure everyone was up and dancing the entire time all the while maintaining an elegant atmosphere. I cannot say enough great things about John and Entertain New England. I am so pleased with our decision to go with them and would highly recommend them to anyone for their special event!
Entertain New England, LLC is AMAZING! John Dudley is professional, knowledgeable, personable, and fun! We were provided with exceptional guidance with regard to choosing both the music and other elements to make our special day even more enjoyable. He provided encouragement and helpful suggestions as we completed the forms that would help structure the music choices throughout the ceremony and reception. We also chose to include a television monitor with a slideshow of pictures, which was a huge hit for friends and family to enjoy. The photo booth - what can I say?? The booth itself is actually quite stunning and the pictures were so fun. Our guests still talk about the fun that was had in the photo booth and we enjoy having copies of all the pictures that were taken. The lighting provided was perfect! He was able to match our wedding colors. John was absolutely a joy to work with and we HIGHLY recommend using Entertain New England, LLC for any event. In fact, we have already recommended his services to several people including my brother who got engaged on July 30. Words cannot begin to express how thankful we are to have had the opportunity to work with John. He also provided the encouragement and confidence that helped me make the decision to sing at the wedding - a decision that made our day even more special! John - Entertain New England, LLC - thank you, thank you, thank you!

DJ John Dudley was amazing from our first Skype session. His warm personality and professionalism made us feel confident from the beginning and he did not disappoint. He was able to take our favorite music and make an incredible play list from the ceremony right through the end of the night dancing mayhem. He even created a Chicago Bulls themed entrance (per my husbands request) that rocked my husbands world. John was so organized and great to work with. He really got the dance floor going in a space that could have been hard to get folks to go to.
There was country, there was 90's rock, there was 90's rap, it was amazing! I danced the night away….what more could a girl ask for on her wedding day!
Thanks so much John, you rock!
Entertain New England provided us with exceptional service. We used them for the D.J. for the reception/dancing portion of the evening and we used their instrumentalists/string duo for the ceremony portion. I was a very picky bride with very specific taste, and all of my wishes were met. ENE also provided our officiant with a mic and ensured the sound system was properly set up and ready to go before the ceremony. They arrived several hours before the wedding without charging any over time to make sure all of our details ran smoothly.
Our D.J., John, was amazing. He met with us before the wedding and made sure that he completely understood all of our musical choices and preferences for announcements. His D.J. services were entertaining, but tasteful, and guests loved him.
You are really getting a good deal with this vendor. I couldn't say enough good things - awesome job!!!
Reflecting on our wedding together and with our friends and family, it is consistently brought up that everyone just had so much fun, which is clearly evidenced by the fact that the dance floor was never empty. This is a direct credit to you as our DJ. We enjoyed working with you from day one all the way through to the reception. The music suggestions were spot on, setting the tone for every instance of the event, and the night was flawless.
Thank you so much for DJing our wedding. It was truly epic and you played such an important role in the planning and execution of the night. We only regret that the event can't be relived. And yes, we'd hire you again without question!
All our best and hope our paths cross again soon at another celebratory event!

After trying out a companies that offered DJ and uplighting services, we were referred to John by a mutual friend who knew him from college. After sitting down with John from the initial meeting, and throughout our wedding night, my husband and I were so thankful for such a wonderful person to take on this role in our wedding! John was consistently professional, the definition of polite, and a dream to work with. His process was easy and he made sure to check in with us from time to time to see if we needed any assistance (since this was the only time we had ever hired a DJ for anything) without being overbearing. We can say without a doubt, if you book John, you will NOT be disappointed!! He is an absolute MUST if you want your wedding to feel like the party it should, as he helped get all of our guests up and moving, while running through the desired songs/genres seamlessly. I would definitely hire him again if I ever need DJ services, and recommend him to a friend or family member looking for services he renders. No need to look any further than Entertain New England! Thank you for everything John!!
John Dudley at Entertain New England was the DJ my wedding on June 20th 2014. He made the night amazing, he got everyone up and dancing. Played a great mix of music that everyone enjoyed. Very accessible throughout the planning process. Can't wait to have him DJ another event for us
We had an outstanding experience with DJ Dan from Entertain New England. We would recommend him in a heart beat.
We had a tough crowd -- 100 adults of different ages + 20 kids. From the beginning, Dan provided creative ideas so we could keep everyone engaged. He supported our offbeat processional/recessional choices and encouraged us to have a good time,
During the actual wedding, he did an excellent job keeping the kids busy, so their parents could eat. Once the general dancing started, everyone was on the floor (for the entire time). It was remarkable.
Dan is fun, passionate and engaged in the success of our event. A total gem.
Amazing job! Dan made us feel so comfortable with the whole process. From the start, he was excited for the night and made us worry free. Music selection was perfect and there was plenty of dancing all night long. Two thumbs up! Also, the photo booth made for some great pictures through the night. Def an added bonus!
John did everything that we asked, and so much more! He really got to know us and our personalities, and it showed in his performance. Everything that he played fit us and the general vibe of the Wedding perfectly.
Additionally, the photo slide show that he set up for us was a HUGE hit!
DJ John Dudley is as professional as they come. He was always available and happily willing to assist with me during my wedding planning process! He was easy to communicate with; very personable and kind. The day of my wedding he was calm and friendly, he made me feel at ease and flawlessly executed his DJ services. I especially appreciated that he called me ahead of time and practiced the pronunciations of my wedding party. I had a day wedding, so naturally my guests were less inclined to get on the dance floor in the broad daylight, but thanks to John's talent and expertise with keeping the crowd engaged, my dance floor was occupied the entire time. You won't regret choosing John for your special event! I certainly don't!
John was great from our first meeting up to our wedding day and beyond. Ultimately it came down to personality and comfort level with the DJ we were going to use. John sat down with us on our first meeting and we knew he was what we were looking for. He was able to read the spread of our guests and played a great mix to please everyone from cocktail hour up to the last dance.
His personality and organization mixed with his taste for the right music for the right crowd makes it easy for us to recommend him for any special event.
John did an unbelievable job at our wedding. He was friendly, easy to work with and very professional. He listened to what we wanted and outperformed our expectations. It’s a month after our wedding and people are still raving about how great our DJ was. I highly recommend John and will absolutely use him again.
Entertain New England is always at the top of my list when I reccomend a DJ to my clients.
DJ Dan kept the dance floor packed, brought a GIANT photobooth that was a big hit with guests, and made two of the younger ladies at the party super happy with their requests, letting them play DJ and even making balloon princesses!
As someone whose worked with MANY Boston DJ's, you can't go wrong with Entertain New England!

We had the privilege of working with DJ Dan at our Omni Mount Washington wedding on September 14, 2013. To say we had a blast does not do his performance justice! Entertain New England not only provided our music, ceremony through reception, but hosted our crazy fun photo booth AND Dan shared his balloon art talent with my 8 year old daughter! He was a hit all the way around and his team was professional and incredibly friendly! We would absolutely recommend this team to anyone looking to have a good time!
DJ John Dudley does not disappoint! He is a true professional and an absolutely great DJ. My husband and I selected him after reading other killer reviews and seeing some of the videos of other weddings he had done. We could not have been happier with this choice. Not only was John SUPER prompt and organized with his communications with us, he helped to keep everything in order on the big day and helped keep us on track with our timeline throughout the night. He played all the songs we wanted, was willing to stay for longer than expected, and even made sure that the bridal party was doing okay throughout the night. I could not have asked for a better wedding DJ - thank you for an amazing night, John!!
I would hire John Dudley again in a heartbeat. He is an awesome MC, DJ, and overall great person. He is laid back and not obnoxious like some DJ's- no ego problems LOL. He took a lot of personal time with us to plan our wedding and even gave us a planning sheet, met with our wedding coordinator, etc and suggested some great tunes for our special day. My husband and I can't thank John enough for his services and would recommend him to anyone in need of a great DJ. His prices were extremely reasonable and competative with other DJ's we checked out.
What an amazing DJ I highly recommend John he was so helpful very professional gave lots of great suggestions even joined us on the dance floor for a few of the group dances by the end I felt like I new John for a long time don't miss out on a great friendly down to earth DJ :)
The purple lighting he has is amazing he had all my guests up on the dance floor !!!
Best DJ ever! John is such an awesome person to work with and really made our wedding personal and super fun. He is attentive to details and goes above and beyond to make you feel like your wedding is the most important thing he has ever done. His price is very reasonable and he even through in a few "extras" which really made a difference. Thanks John!
DJ John Dudley was great! Professional, responsive in the planning stages, charismatic with the crowd. The dance floor was packed all night, which is what we were going for, and he worked in all of our requests seamlessly. John understood intuitively what we were getting at with some of our more offbeat requests, and even made us a fantastic mashup of all of the wrestling theme songs that the Groom wanted our GIGANTIC wedding party to enter to - a dozen different songs, and he made it work perfectly! A delight to work with.
