wow these guys really delivered!!! My husband’s family is Egyptian, mine is American, and both sides love to dance and party, so we needed the music to switch between English and Arabic over the course of the night (not that easy to do without ...
losing momentum from half the party). We provided the team ~20 Arabic songs in advance and we were SO impressed at how seamlessly they incorporated and mixed the music- both sides of the family and our friends were dancing the entire night! They were also very easy to communicate with both leading up to and with the emcee on the night of the event (for example, moving up the cake cutting so our photographer could get the shots before he left, making sure they had the right pronunciation of our bridal party names for the grand entrance).

t day. The year leading up to the wedding Harold was in constant contact to make sure he knew the music we wanted and more importantly didn’t want. Which I really appreciated. Harold was so familiar with our venue which also helped ease my mind. From the moment we walked into our venue until the time we left no one stopped dancing! Harold know how to pump the party up. Almost a year later we STILL have people talking about who our DJ was and how everyone (from my grandma to my youngest cousin who was 7 at the time) dances the entire time. I wanted custom made sunglasses and I asked Harold if he could hand them out and he said absolutely. I think the most special part was when i told Harold how much I loved country music and wanted some played at the wedding, he did his research, found a few amazing songs, and played them! Even the non county fans danced during this time. I would absolutely use Big Apple again, they did an outstanding job!

recognized his passion and energy for his job and his business. We hired Big Apple because we were confident that Paul would ensure a great party for us. In subsequent meetings, Paul only enhanced our confidence in his product. His attention to detail and high standard of performance removed provided great comfort.
On our wedding day, we were excited to meet MC Phil and DJ Angelo. Phil met with us just prior to the introductions to ensure that he was following what we had previously requested. He did a great job getting the party started. Phil and Angelo have a great talent for reading the crowd and chose great music to keep the party going all night. Prior to the wedding, we decided to add an extra hour, and we feel that every penny was well worth it.
We also appreciated that Phil checked in with us throughout the night to ensure we were enjoying everything - and we definitely were. We can't imagine having hired anyone else, and we would recommend Big Apple Entertainment to anyone and everyone.

Paul took hours out of his busy day to walk us through every aspect of the wedding day, from the timing and flow of the day, to the limo, to makeup and hair. We would have never thought of any of those details had Paul not walked us through them. Because of that extra care and attention, our wedding day had no surprises and was a smashing success.
Service: As soon as we arrived, Paul was there to greet us and keep us on time. We had told him beforehand we wanted to enjoy our cocktail hour, and he made it so we did. When it was time for the bridal party entrance, Paul was there giving us instructions and making sure we were on time. We REALLY appreciated his attention to details.
Paul and Vinny were our DJ and MC combo. From our first song to the last dance, these two were AMAZING. My wife and I still get chills when we think about how perfectly our first dance went because of Paul. We were alone for the right amount of time, and he had everyone join in at the exact right moment. He made us a memory we will always cherish.
The music selection was always on point as well. He played all different types of music so everyone would be on the dance floor at all times. Paul’s personality as MC was unmatched. Everyone afterwards told us how great the music was at our wedding. And the dance floor was never empty.
During the wedding, the consultation did not stop. He would come up to us and tell us when we should go around and greet everyone. He should offer services as a wedding planner in addition to his great DJ service.

music and photos. Eric, Paulie, and Bill were helpful from start to finish. They went above and beyond throughout the process, and above and beyond the day of the wedding. I can confidentially say that they are the best of the best, and personally know a couple of other brides who used Big Apple Entertainment and Visual Impressions and were just as satisfied with their work.
We used Big Apple/Visual impressions for every possible service..as a DJ, photobooth contractor, photographer, and videographer. There were so many special touches throughout the wedding night which wouldn't have been possible without them.
To quote some of our guests: "best wedding we've ever been to!" "I can't believe it's over, we had such a blast," and the list goes on.
If you want my opinion, I vote Big Apple Entertainment for your special day!! With the help of Big Apple, the everlasting memories you dream of will be made.
Thank you Eric, Paulie and Bill!!

He has been in this business for many years, and his experience shows. He walked us through every moment of what would happen during the reception, and made sure to spend extra time with us, going over our music and party preferences. Paul was meticulous about having every detail just the way we wanted it, reassuring us that all of our “do’s and don’ts” would be honored. All of our guests raved about the music, and my husband and I didn’t stop dancing all night! It was a great party, due largely to the professionalism and expertise of Big Apple.

t song suggestions for us and was honest and straightforward.
On the day of the wedding, Big Apple also arranged music for our ceremony and Paul was on mark with everything (speaking with officiant beforehand,, connecting with the reception manager, etc). They were on time and professional!
At the reception, our guests would not get off the dance floor because Paul and his team did a great job gauging our guests and knowing what music fit them (ages 18-55). No one would want to leave (even to eat their dinner). At any given time, there was always at least 50 ppl on the dance floor.
Paul was fantastic, he was never intrusive and made sure that hubby and I were his number priority. His team was great in making sure that we didn't have "un-welcomed song requests" or mike "interruptions".
Big Apple truly made my wedding reception-- they did such a great job that my sister/maid of honor is considering them to do her wedding!
Thanks Paul &Team!

Paul was fantastic to work with and I would definitely use him again for another event. He coordinated with the photograph and the maitred' at the venue so everyone would be in the right spot at the right time.
He played great dance music in certain parts, and had great background music in other parts so people could more easily have conversations. It was really well done.

The reception was a huge hit because of big apple. They were in tune with the crowd and if one song made people leave the dance floor, they would quickly change to another one.
They made the boutinere and bouquet toss a lot of fun. They even went around the reception hall with digital cameras, took pix of the guests and put them upon the big screen. They also created a "photo montage" of my and my husband's baby/childhood photos and displayed it on the big screen. The guests got a real kick out of that!

They went out of their way accomadate our schedule even after business hours. It was just so easy to work with them. Eric made my special day perfect, the last thing you want on your special day is a person that you can't trust handling something as important as your music. We 100% trusted him and every choice that he made on the wedding day. The day of our wedding was obviously the best day of my life but Eric made it so easy for us. There was no stress and it felt like he was a friend attending my wedding. He was dancing and getting the crowd up from the minute they walked in the door. I can't say that I have been to many weddings where the party REALLY started from the minute that we walked through the door. It was non-stop great music that everyone till this day has raved about (our wedding was 2 years ago). We have seen/met with them numerous times since our wedding and I just can't say enough great things about them. I can actually say that they are people that we can now refer to as our friends. If you want a DJ company that is easy to work with and someone that you can actually have a person to person conversation with, then Big Apple is the company that you should definitely go with.
