What can we say about Jason and the crew at Excel? WE COULDN'T BE HAPPIER! People are still talking about how the wedding was the most energy filled and fun time they ever had. The half band and half DJ package was the best decision we ever could have made. People could not help but have fun and be on the dance floor all night. If we ever have another party you can be sure that Excel will be there rocking out with us! Thank you to Jason and everyone at excel, we are very satisfied and will always be ready to provide an excellent reference!!
Jason Frankel and the guys at Excel Entertainment are amazing. We first met them when my sister was married in July 2011 and it was no question that they would be our entertainment too. Jason is really personable and flexible and looks to meet your needs. He is a true professional and is also a musician, so you are in good hands. The wedding itself was a party from start to finish - there was never a lull and everyone was up dancing the whole night. He played music that suited older and younger crowds and the timing of everything was just right. There are many things to worry about during the wedding planning process, but the entertainment was never a concern for us. It was flawless. Call Jason, you won't regret it. Thanks so much Excel!
We could not be happier with Excel Entertainment for our recent wedding on July 3, 2013! I met Jason, the owner, at a bridal show when I first got engaged. After watching them perform a band/DJ combination demo, I knew they would be a perfect fit. Livia's voice and Will's performance on the drums were amazing, too!
When my fiancé and I met with Jason for the first time, he made it a point to find out what our style of music is and assured us that he would make our reception as personal as possible. He explained the details and pricing of what we were looking into thoroughly leaving us with no questions.
A year later, we began finalizing the details with him. I was so impressed that he remembered everything we discussed a year prior when we booked the company. We received endless compliments and positive feedback from our guests at the wedding.
Jason's personalized attention to us and our music preference, our photo montage, lighting, and floor monogram was impeccable. I would highly recommend Excel Entertainment to anyone who is looking for a "best of both worlds" experience with an incredibly talented DJ and live musicians.
Excel Entertainment delivered above and beyond, excellent service from start to finish. We were originally booked with another dj company (one of those cookie cutter 'jersey shore' fist pump types), when I happened to stumble upon this unique dj/band option offered by Excel. It sounded like the perfect alternative and unique concept, since bands seem so much classier in my opinion.. however, my only concern with booking a 100% band was that it would potentially limit our song selection possibilities (since we are interested in a wide range of music genres). After meeting with Jason, I was blown away by the sample videos we watched and the skill level of the various band members, and I was certain that there was no better option for our wedding. Thankfully, I was able to get out of the original booking and immediately booked with excel. It was without doubt the best vendor decision I made in this whole crazy wedding process. All of our guests were so impressed by the entertainment, the dance floor was packed all night, and we received so many compliments. 5 stars isn't enough!;)
Had sooo much fun! All of our guests had a blast. Al they could talk about was how awesome the song choices were :)
Jason at Excel was great listened to all of our suggestions, comes very prepared to make the process easy for everyone and helps guide the way to a great evening. The whole party had a blast!
From the moment we met Jason we knew he was the right DJ/ MC and entertainment leader for our wedding. Every guest commented on the quality of the music from the youngest to the oldest of our guests...they all loved the music. Everyone danced, the true sign of a great DJ. Jason handled our ceremony and cultural music as well insuring a great experience for us and our guests.
Thank you Jason and your team for helping to make our day special!
Jason provided the music (jazz trio) and DJ services (himself) for our wedding in Weehawken NJ on 9/23/11. We would recommend Jason (and Excel Entertainment) in a heart-beat! He organized a Jazz Trio (after discussing what I was looking for, very patiently) and made me feel very at ease. He delivered 100%, reliably and professionally. Jason always answered my emails and phone calls right away (working with Brides cannot be easy!)Thanks Jason!
They did an amazin job! Our wedding had superb music and everyone enjoyed! I would definitley reccomend them
My wedding was beyond exceptional thanks to Excel Entertainment! My guests were on the dance floor at all times and the up-lighting was perfect.
Jason was so professional and helpful at all times. He was always available via phone or email and made the whole music selection process painless. The acoustic guitarist really made my ceremony so special. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!
I was so pleased with excel entertainment! They did an amazing job and i did not stop dancing the entire night. I would recommend them in a heart beat!!
Jason Frankel and Excel Entertainment are professional, courteous, and will go above and beyond for you and yours. We were overwhelmed by his service excellence and would recommend Excel Entertainment to anyone getting married. The combination of DJ and live acts offered a dynamic that my guests are still raving about.
Amazing group owned by Jason Frankel.. timely, on the spot with everything.. so much fun we invited them to hang out afterwards and they came!! Truely perfect!
We chose you within minutes of meeting you because of your professionalism & genuine care not to mention efficiency w/the time spent in our initial meeting. THAT WAS A HUGE selling point as other vendors kept us hostage w/half as you had to... offer. Then the wedding: Dance floor stayed busy when appropriate & clear when needed. You worked w/our varying tastes, as I(bride) am a R & B, House, Dave Matthews, Depeche Mode fan & my now Husband is as metal as a tin can man! You accommodated all requests (varying like whoa) & provided suggestions that were on target w/our tastes. Our reception was everything we wanted, a huge party w/happy people on the dance floor. All grounds were covered & all guests were happy. We also had intelligent lights but would like to thank Jason’s clever light tech for making them do their thing well. Overall if you’re looking for someone that will keep the night running smoothly & be PROFESSIONAL Jason is your only choice! Thank you dearly Excel Entertainment.
Everything was wonderful. I had the best time, music was great. Everyone I talked to also said one of the funnest weddings they have ever been to...mission accomplished.
DJ Jason was professional and fun as well. Asked us if any requests were made, very accomodating.
Thanks again for everything....wish I could have a wedding every weekend!!!!
Also the uplighting made such a difference in the room...gorgeous.
They were absolutely great! From the moment we met with Jason, he put our minds at ease and was always very responsive. We chose the half band half dj package which sounded absolutely amazing!
