Despite what your family and friends say about "enjoying the process of wedding planning", it is stressful! There are many details that need to fall into place with many different vendors to create the wedding that you always dream of. With that comes a cyclone of communication(s) from the minute you get engaged to till the wedding night is over. My wife and I struggled with the stress of getting periodic non-responses from vendors during our 13 month wedding planning process when we needed answers to our questions - but not Jeff and his staff at ECF. Jeff was professional and responsive from Day 1 - we booked him after my (now) wife met him at a wedding expo. We met with him about 2 'on the after we got engaged for a detail meeting so Jeff could get an idea of what we were looking for in him for the big day. We then spent the next 9-10 months or so utilizing Jeff's super user-friendly database to set up our timeline and pick music for our day - the database is awesome and very expansive. One of the highlights is it gives you common songs for different events of the wedding (cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc). Jeff was available throughout the process and never took more than a couple hours (unless it was a wedding night!) to respond to 1 of our questions (and we had a lot of them). We met with Jeff again about 1 month before the day to finalize our timeline and all of our music selections - Jeff made sure he understood and could pronounce every single wedding party member's name and he had great suggestions for the music to our actual ceremony. When the day came, Jeff and his staff absolutely crushed it. He was professional and kept our schedule going throughout the ceremony, cocktail hour, and the initial points of dinner such as parent/bride/groom dances and speeches, and then when it got time for everyone to get on the floor - BOOM. Jeff's playlist was on point and NOBODY left the dance floor - the whole thing felt like a whirlwind. We had the night of our lives thanks to Jeff and his staff. - The Healy's
DJ Tony did our wedding on November 2016 and we couldn't be happier with our selection for a DJ. Throughout the planning process he was checking in and making sure we sent him all the songs we wanted for the ceremony, announcements, first dance, etc. He was helpful in providing suggestions and even customized our first dance song so it was just perfect. The online tool ECF uses keeps you organized and also allows you to select must play and do not play lists. Tony listened to what our audience would like and delivered. He's incredibly professional and knows how to fill a dance floor! DJ shyne was terrific in answering all of our questions and working with us to stay within our budget - thank you ECF!
My husband, Mike, and I were beyond happy with the services we received from ECF Entertainment and DJ J Boogz. Our wedding at the Popponesset Inn this September was masterfully DJ'ed by Josh. Their website was very user friendly and allowed Mike and I to select music for the various parts of our wedding while having a glass of wine at home. We also had a Skype session with Josh a month prior to the wedding to discuss the details, which made us even more excited for the wedding. He helped us organize the timeline of the event to maximize dancing - which worked perfectly. He suggested a few upbeat songs after our first dance - and almost immediately, the entire room was up dancing, having a blast. Josh has a great sense for what to play to keep the energy up at a wedding. He also did the uplighting, which looked wonderful. I have already been strongly suggesting ECF Entertainment, and particularly Josh, to friends who plan to marry next year. Happy wedding planning!
Words can honestly not explain how amazing this group is. They worked hand in hand with the Boston Common Band to put on our vent. Prior to our wedding, they were by far the most unbelievable vendor to work with. They are quick to respond, answer any and all questions (honestly within minutes at times), and are unbelievably organized. They remind you of timelines, and ensure things on your end are done in a timely fashion (so helpful to avoid the craziness of organizing details right before the wedding!). Our DJ (Nate) met with us a week prior to the wedding to go over finals details, let us know what to expect, and go over pronunciations of names (do not undermine the importance of this!). It was also great to put a face to the name we had communicated with so much and to see that he was as excited for our event as we were! Even before the wedding day, I was so happy that we had chosen to work with this group. Things only got better! DJ Nate provided a seamless event, keeping us and the band on time. We left most of the music selection up to him (dinner and between band sets) and the band, and just with the little we told of our preferences, they hit it perfectly dead on. I would rehire this DJ/band in a heartbeat.
DJ Shyne is the best of the best!! We had been to a few weddings that he did before we got married which made him an easy choice, and he did NOT disappoint! All the way up until the day of the wedding he was incredibly helpful with any questions we had and really made the whole process very easy. The online portal we used to choose all of the music was so easy to navigate and really helped us figure out what we should do in regards to all of the music choices that needed to be made. DJ Shyne really knows how to get everyone on the dance floor and keep the party going! He paid attention to what we wanted to hear while adding his own special touches with flawless transitions and a great mix of all different genres and decades. We HIGHLY recommend ECF Entertainment!! Thank you Jeff!! -The Dearys 10/7/16
Jeff is hands down the BEST DJ. He was extremely organized and easy to work with throughout the entire process and on the night of the wedding, he was stellar. He introduced himself to our parents and made them feel completely comfortable and answered questions our bridal party had about introductions and speeches. The playlist was phenomenal. Our friends have repeatedly commented that Jeff was the best DJ they've ever heard at a wedding and folks were up on the dance floor throughout the night. I cannot say enough great words about Jeff. He's a true professional and made our wedding day so special.
ECF Entertainment and DJ Rolling Rick were amazing right from the get go!! From our initial meeting almost a year in advance right up to the day of wedding they were so helpful and available at all times. We loved the ease and accessibility to their music catalog online to help create an amazing night of dancing. We would recommend them to everyone!
Great DJ - very easy to work with, very professional, and responsive to our needs. We appreciated the fact that there is no stress in working with them. Further, they listened to everything we asked for, and incorporated everything into our special night.
Jeff and Unisa was amazing from start to finish. From the first intro call to the online portal to track all forms and song requests to the actual day of, both of them were incredibly responsive and professional. Logistics were never an issue. When it came to the song list and crafting the night, Unisa was super flexible on what we played and when and even found a couple Korean songs for family coming from out of town. The night of he also got the crowd super involved and was the best hype man - I told him at the end of the night that our last song was one of the best memories of my life. Truly a great party because of these guys.
DJ Shyne did our wedding this past August and we couldn't have asked for a better time. The whole process from start to finish was stress free thanks to Jeff. He is so organized and helped us with the whole planning process even outside of the music! Our dance floor was bumping all night long. Thanks DJ Shyne!
We worked with DJ Shyne for our wedding, and he was hands down the best DJ we've ever heard, and our guest agreed! He was very available and friendly and willing to answer all of our questions before booking and before the big day. We loved using the online portal to communicate our wants and schedule with him before the wedding. Day of - he was a fantastic MC and totally felt the vibe of the wedding and was able to get everyone up and moving, starting with the very first song. We were up and dancing all night - and Jeff was a huge part of that! I would highly, HIGHLY recommend using ECF Entertainment and DJ Shyne for your next event!
Josh (DJ J-Boogz) was a pleasure to work with! We were crazy busy with work leading up to the wedding and thus needed lots of reminders and help - through it all, Josh was patient and so easy to work with. The portal that ECF uses is super convenient and organized, which makes planning very easy. Josh also helped us cut down our first dance song to the right time to include my favorite verse, which was fairly important to me and worked out perfectly. And most importantly, Josh arrived right on time at the venue, set everything up, and kept our guests dancing til the end of the night! I had many guests tell me how great the music was, and how it was awesome that we had a lot of modern songs and really no lulls at all. The photo booth option was awesome too - I know I was debating open air vs. enclosed, but I REALLY loved the open air (you can get more people in a photo, and it doesn't have the cramped feel for some of our taller guests). Thank you ECF for making our wedding so much fun!
We used DJ Shyne and Boston Common Band for our wedding and they were absolutely outstanding. From the incredibly thorough pre-event review with Shyne to the non-stop party on our big night, there's nothing bad to say about these guys. We had several guests (our parents included - and they were in the know ahead of time!) who didn't even realize the band stopped playing because Shyne seamlessly picked up where the band left off (and managed to play almost all of our must plays that the band didn't cover). They were more than willing to customize the timeline of the evening to meet our needs. They also did a tremendous job of lighting the ballroom for us. Unequivocally recommend DJ Shyne to anyone.
We are in awe of the amazing work that DJ Shyne (Jeff Mader of ECF Entertainment) did at our reception on August 5, 2016!! My husband and I were thrilled with his creativity, ability to steer the party with a fun, personable personality, and the sheer amount of work, effort and time he put in to play our requests, cut cool portions of songs to smoothly transition into songs of a similar genre so that there was a great flow, and play crowd-pleasing songs which fit our musical preferences. Jeff had such a reassuring presence and clearly explained to us and the wedding party how to do our entrances and what to expect when. Everyone had such fun dancing! We LOVED every song he played, and also could not get over how amazing the uplighting and dance floor lighting were! It created a special atmosphere in the room. Many people came up to us and made a point to ask us who our DJ was and mention how great of a job he were doing: this included our talented caterer who has worked many weddings, she even asked our Jeff for a business card: she was that impressed by his work. Jeff is so talented, and we feel so lucky to have had him with us on such a special occasion. His presence was especially important to us, a couple who are shy and introverts: his wonderful hosting ensured everyone had a great party. Lastly, it really meant a lot, and went above and beyond, that he played the groom's sister's request for a song already played (that she had missed) a second time at the end of the night. We appreciate his thoughtfulness and could see throughout the night that he was giving 100% to every moment. We highly recommend ECF Entertainment!
Jeff was fantastic! He made everything so easy for me. The day was flawless! Great personality. Great performance. Would definitely hire again and again!
DJ Tony absolutely killed it! Not only was he an awesome MC, but about a month before our wedding, we had a call scheduled so he could hear our ideas on our timeline of events; when introductions would be, which bridal party members enter first, our first dance timing, his set list...it was all constructed to our liking and he was super easy to work with and a lot of fun at the wedding too! One thing I will say to couples out there, the planning process is a lot. We left a lot in Tony's hands, as he's had a ton of experience with what works and doesn't work at weddings. We trusted his opinion on much of the timeline of events and what songs would get people to dance and what songs will clear the floor. He couldn't have been more dead on. He and the Boston Common Band kept the place rocking all night long, had a great dinner soundtrack, and we couldn't be more grateful to DJ Tony for that. We were lucky to have his help and guidance, and most importantly, his execution. Book the guy...you won't be disappointed! And definitely listen to his advice. He's not a pushy guy, and will do what you wish for, but if your'e not sure on something...he's got the answer on what works best. Thanks again DJ Tony!!
5 stars across the board. Jeff (DJ Shyne) was very professional. He had everything set up and ready to go before any guests showed up. Once the party started, the music flow was seamless and he brought a great energy. I am not a big dancer, but I just couldn't let my self sit down and was on the dance floor the whole night. 100% would recommend him to anyone looking for a top notch, hassle free DJ experience!
Josh, (dj jboogz) did a fantastic job! We couldn't have asked for a better dj he fulfilled all our requests and kept the party on the dance floor all night! We highly recommend him!
If you are searching for the best entertainment for your event ECF is your only option. Josh and Tony were extremely professional in making sure our wedding was an experience of a lifetime. From preparation to execution they were involved with every detail. The night of the wedding both Josh and Tony catered to our needs and those of our guests. They made sure that everyone got involved with the celebration with great music, amazing lights and fun activities. In our opinion ECF Entertainment is the highest quality and we recommend only them for your special day. In addition many of our guests have mentioned how they loved our entertainment and where to find them for their own events. Keep up the amazing work! Christopher and Monica Keefe
DJ Shyne is the best! We were referred to him from a friend and we were not disappointed. He made sure to connect with us at various points throughout the planning process to make sure we had all of the details we needed confirmed for the big day. He did a great job of getting and keeping the dancing going all night. He also did an amazing job of balancing our song requests with his own picks. We also used ECF for uplighting and it was great - not intrusive to the decor of our reception space at all. Their pricing was also great and better than most in the area. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great dance party!
DJ Shyne was an amazing addition to our wedding team. He was incredibly professional and his wedding day management and attention to detail cannot be beat. DJ Shyne was always responsive and helpful in the planning process, and we could really tell that he cared about our wedding as much as we did. Best of all, he kept our guests on the dance floor all night! Look no further, book ECF/DJ Shyne for your event- you will not be disappointed!
DJ Shyne (Jeff) made the entire planning process easy and worry free. It was clear that he was on top of our event from the minute we started working with him through the end of our wedding ceremony. Jeff has an extremely professional approach to DJ services, and offers a truly incredible value for such an important aspect of a wedding reception. He helped make our reception memorable for us and all of our guests.
In our entire wedding planning process, the best decision we made was to hire Boston Common Band! It was important to us to have a band at our wedding reception, but we were nervous because with most other bands, the energy fell flat when they took a break during the reception. We hired Boston Common not only because we heard them play once or twice live, but we were comforted by knowing a DJ would keep the energy moving throughout the night. Jonathan, Jeff (DJ Shyne), and the whole crew made planning incredibly easy with their online site, and meeting Jeff the month before allowed us to be calm moving into the big day because we knew the whole group would make sure the night was executed exactly as we had discussed. Boston Common Band blew away our expectations for the night. They played such a diverse mix of music throughout the night, it kept every generation on the dancefloor the entire time! We absolutely loved some of the mashups they played, and were thrilled with their level of energy – they truly got every friend and family member enjoying themselves, including Mike’s 85 year old grandmother! In the weeks since our wedding, our friends and family have continued to get in touch to ask us “where did you find this band?! They are incredible!” Each of the members of the band is very talented, and together they sound phenomenal. We think you would be silly to not hire Boston Common if you’re in the market for a band! Jeff (DJ Shyne) did an incredible job serving as the emcee for the entire evening, and made sure the night moved along flawlessly. His level of professionalism was impeccable and we remain grateful to him for treating us both so well. Each step of the night, he ensured we were aware of what was to come and anyone else who needed to be clued in (think parent dances and other wedding formalities). He took care of coordinating with our venue throughout the night so we literally had nothing to worry about except enjoying ourselves. Then, Jeff’s set during the band set break was a HUGE hit. There is nothing better than a DJ who knows his audience, and knows how to mix together a great string of hits to complement the work the band is doing. What else can we say other than Boston Common Band has us on cloud nine literally weeks after our wedding and we will be this way for some time to come. Between the band and DJ Shyne, together they created an unforgettable night not only for us, but for each of our friends and family who was there to celebrate with us! Finally, we used ECF to do our uplighting - and it looked fantastic! We liked the wirless lights and the LED look - small lights that were barely noticeable unless you were searching for them. Great package and competitively priced!
The best!! We booked Jeff (DJ Shyne) and could not have been happier! From the planning process to the night of, he was incredibly professional, helpful, and fun! He walked us through the online planner, which was such a useful tool to help us organize everything from the music to the timeline of events. He was very accommodating with our request to incorporate some of our favorite music into the cocktail hour and dinner portions of the night. Our dance floor was packed from start to finish, and our guests had a blast! So many people made a point to tell us how great our DJ was, and the entire night was seamless. DJ Shyne came highly recommended by friends, and he didn't disappoint! We would definitely recommend DJ Shyne and ECF!
Josh was amazing! He accommodated all of our requests and gave excellent suggestions for how to make the night flow and ensure everyone had an excellent time. Our guests cannot stop talking about how well everything was done from the music, lighting, and intros. Josh was so wonderful to work with and so well organized that we didn't have to worry about a single thing! They were the best!
