No joke - Josh aka Jboogz deserves 10000000000 stars. He is EVERYTHING I wanted in a DJ and he honestly was better than my expectations which is by no means an easy task. I wanted a DJ who would mix music and keep the dance floor packed and Josh delivered. I had relatives who aren't big dancers say Josh was the best part of the wedding, his music selection and mixes were perfect. Both Josh & Mike's energy and excitement made for such an awesome night. I really liked the ECF portal which helped with song selection, requests and timelines. My fiance and I had two facetime chats with him too which made me feel like I knew him on my wedding day. The photo booth was also an awesome addition to the wedding! It was a great way to engage the guests while keeping them on the dance floor! I can't say enough good things other then book him for your wedding and you will NOT be disappointed.
My husband and I can’t say enough good stuff about DJ Shyne (Jeff Mader) from E.C.F. Entertainment!! The music at our wedding was so much better than we had ever hoped for. DJ Shyne is extremely eager and enthusiastic. He clearly loves what he does and works hard to do a good job. We enjoyed meeting with him over skype and in person. He also checked in frequently by email to make sure we had all our music choices and details organized in time, which was really helpful! On the night of the wedding, DJ Shyne did a wonderful job with our ceremony and cocktail hour - and completely blew us away with the reception! He announced the wedding party very well, without being obnoxious or silly like some wedding DJs can be! He did a great job of reading the crowd and mixing up the music to get everyone on the dance floor. My husband and I were incredibly impressed with the “gapless” mixes he was able to create, too! They were awesome! For days and weeks after the wedding, the part of our wedding we got complimented on most by family and friends was the music. (Literally the only thing we would have him change if we were to do it all again would be to turn the music down a little, as it got quite loud later in the evening… I didn’t notice, but my mom did. This is something DJ Shyne would’ve been happy to adjust for us if we’d asked, but no one did, so we just kept dancing!!) Thanks for an unforgettable wedding, DJ Shyne!!
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
ECF entertainment was amazing!! DJ Manolo was so amazing and accommodating!! He was a joy to be around and he kept the party going!!! A+++
We booked DJ Tony for our wedding along with ECF entertainment/Soul Estate and needless to say, 5 stars just simply is not enough! We were so happy with our music selection and absolutely loved the combination of having a DJ and a Band. They totally killed it!
DJ Shyne absolutely crushed it at our wedding. The music selection for the cocktail hour and his introductions were the perfect setup for one of the liveliest dance parties we've ever been a part of. We've had a ton of our guests asking for our wedding playlist which was entirely his design. After meeting with Jeff we knew we were on the same page. We gave him some basic information on our style and some genres we wanted to include for our family and he ran with it perfectly. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and he incorporated everything we had hoped for. While the music selection and sound quality is obviously what people think of when evaluating their entertainment, the thing that really set E.C.F. apart from all of our vendors was Jeff's communication from our first contact all the way through our wedding day. He was extremely thorough and transparent and he offloaded all of the stress of planning. He was extremely proactive with us which helped us keep to our planning schedule. Our wedding planner literally told us, "I have never worked with a more organized and detail oriented DJ." If you're looking for a DJ who can throw a ridiculous party and take all the stress of planning your entertainment off your plate, DJ Shyne and E.C.F Entertainment will absolutely deliver. Thank you again to the whole team for ensuring our wedding was a night that our guests and us will always remember.
DJ Manolo and E.C.F. Entertainment were amazing from the moment we met at a Bridal Expo in Boston. I wasn't expecting to walk away with much written in stone as I attended the expo about a year and 3 months before our wedding. I met DJ Manolo at the expo he was friendly, informative, and not pushy. I did my research over the next few weeks and came back to E.C.F. entertainment as they seemed to have the 'full' package' we were looking for our wedding. During the months leading up the our wedding, DJ Manolo kept us up to date with Timeline and schedule. And the day of our wedding was perfect. The energy from DJ Manolo and his team were the perfect fit for our lively Cuban Irish Wedding. From the weddding party introductions to the music selection to the garter toss ... it was amazing. the reception ran smoothly without missing a beat and we have DJ Manolo and E.C.F. Entertainment to thank. All of our guests ranted and raved about how much fun they had and the driving factor in that in every wedding is (yes the couple) but really the DJ because they keep the party moving and flowing just as requested. So thank you again DJ Manolo!
DJ Manolo was amazing. From the original meeting we knew he was the DJ for us. He took time to get to know us, and really understood what we were looking for on our wedding day. From that meeting until our wedding day DJ Manolo would check in to make sure we were on track and ask if we needed any help. He also scheduled a final meeting a few weeks prior to the wedding. When we had the final meeting - everything he had prepared and was checking over with us was on point. It was a relief as a bride to know that everything was all set and ready to go. I was impressed with all the pre-wedding interactions - but his work at our wedding is what really blew us away. DJ Manolo captured us a couple from the beginning of the reception until the end . He really helped with the whole flow of the night. When it came time to dance he read us and our guests and he kept party going up until the last song of the night! We had the best time and much of that is to the credit of DJ Manolo. I HIGHLY recommend him and ECF entertainment.
DJ Manolo did an absolutely phenomenal job DJing my September wedding! (September 9th 2017) There wasn't a moment that our guests weren't dancing and loving the music selection! My guests are still talking about how amazing the DJ was. He made the planning process fun and easy. I would highly recommend DJ Manolo for any event!!
DJ Manolo of ECF Entertainment performed at our wedding in August and he was amazing! We used the online tools provided for the wedding timeline and song selection which were easy and convenient to use. We got a little caught up with other planning aspects as we got closer to the big day so we didn't have time to really fill out all the playlists, but we did put in a small list of songs we wanted and some basic ideas on our do not play list (no line dances). DJ Manolo took the suggestions we made and came up with some perfect selections that fit exactly what we were looking for. There were several times during dinner where we found ourselves thoroughly enjoying a song and we turned around and give a big thumbs-up to DJ Manolo who would nod with a big smile on his face. It was very clear to us that he loves what he does and loves seeing people have an enjoyable time with his help. We had so many comments from guests about how the DJ was fantastic and we couldn't agree more. If we had to do it all over again we would choose DJ Manolo and ECF every time.
We hired DJ Manolo for our September wedding and he was nothing short of AMAZING. From the moment we hired him I knew we had made the right choice. He was extremely organized throughout the entire process, easily accessible for questions and phone conversations, and very flexible with his time, he's also just an awesome guy with great vibes and personality. He completely eased my mind when we spoke in the days before the wedding to go over all of the music details, a true professional. The music for the cocktail hour, wedding procession, and dinner were perfect and exactly what we had discussed. However, once the dance party started we really got to see him shine. I have never danced so much in my LIFE, the entire wedding was on the dance floor the whole night. It was hit after hit, he was reading the vibes of the crowd throwing out a versatile mix of music all night long. He was getting the crowd hyped up, doing shout outs for me and my husband, it was an INCREDIBLE party! Everyone I spoke to commented on how awesome the DJ and music were, asking me for his information and singing his praises even for days after the wedding. If I could give 100 stars I would, I recommend DJ Manolo all day every day!
We booked with DJ Tony for our wedding this past September along with ECF entertainment/Soul Estate and we were beyond happy with them!!! All night long our dance floor was packed and they were so easy to work with!! Super responsive to any emails/questions I had and their online forum was easy to use. I cannot thank them enough for all their hard work and making our night so special!! DJ Tony even went above and beyond and made a custom mash up of songs for my father daughter dance. It was so amazing and I am so thankful to him for doing this!! Book them now you won't be disappointed!!
My wife and I are so incredibly happy with E.C.F. Entertainment! Everything about them was fantastic! We ended up booking one of the owners, Jeff Mader (DJ Shyne) and we couldn't have been happier. He was so easy to work with and was incredibly helpful, responsive, and accommodating. He was always willing to work with us to schedule Skype meetings that worked best for us and they were always productive and efficient; no time wasted at all! My wife and I often found ourselves asking for his opinion on just about everything and he always clearly laid out our options and which ones he felt would align the best with our vision for the big day. Their website's client portal was great, too! So easy to follow and asked all the right questions to help them build the perfect playlists for each aspect of the day. These guys really know what their doing. They played all the right music at all the right times and the dance floor was NEVER empty from the time it opened until the end of the reception! We would recommend these guys to anyone. If you're even remotely considering E.C.F., just do it, you won't regret it! :D
We cant say enough about how awesome DJ Shyne with ECF Entertainment was! We picked him from the internet which is scary enough after hearing some people's dj horror stories, but after our first interview with him, we were 100% confident that he was the one! We really liked that his full time job is being a DJ and because of that, he was completely devoted to making our wedding amazing! He was unbelievably organized and kept us on schedule. He asked us about planning things we had not thought of! The music was on point! He kept the party going and people dancing alllll night ! He stuck to exactly what we wanted and equally important what we did not want! My soon to be father in law requested song to be played that was on our Do Not Play list and he didn't cave! My soon to be brother in law tried to change up our last song of the night and he didnt let that happen either. He was ALWAYS available for anything we needed and we always felt important to him! Seriously, you will not be disappointed with DJ Shyne!! Thank you so much for making our night so awesome! People still talk about how fun our party was!
DJ Shyne was absolutely amazing to work with. From the beginning we knew we had picked the right person. Our coordinators even commented how excellent he was to work with from their end and will definitely be recommending him in the future to other couples. He was super organized and on top of every detail. The music was perfect for each moment. He kept people on the dance floor all night and knew when to play certain songs based on the crowd. He was so professional and was a perfect MC. You can tell he has done this 100 times and everything was just flawless. If you need someone who is professional both on the business side of things as well as someone who has great taste in music, Jeff is your DJ! I couldn't recommend him more. Thank you Jeff for making our wedding a night to remember and keeping me dancing all night!
DJ Shyne and ECF Entertainment were fantastic. Top-notch service all-around. DJ Shyne took the time at the beginning to have a video conference to go through in detail all of the stages of the wedding ceremony and reception. The details he anticipated were so thorough and alleviated so much stress as it helped us decide matters that we would not have even thought of, especially that early in the process. DJ Shyne then had another video conference closer to the wedding date to go through every detail. He responded to emails almost immediately throughout the whole process. Now, to the actual wedding day. He was amazing. First of all, DJ Shyne put us in touch with Divina Strings who performed as a string trio at the ceremony. They learned songs we requested and it was beautiful. Many of our guests said how great their performance was. We had a family friend as the officiant. The microphones that ECF Entertainment used were of the highest quality and everyone was able to hear our vows. Likewise, my wife and I gave a quick toast outside of our venue at the end of the cocktail hour, and the microphone was great. At the reception, DJ Shyne brought the house down. Even before the dancing started, he played a song I mentioned as part of a funny story in my toast. A lot of people got a good laugh out of it, and this is just an example of how much fun and how detail-oriented DJ Shyne is. Once the dancing started, it did not stop. I have never seen a wedding where the dance floor was as full the entire time as it was here. I truly could not believe how fun his performance was. My wife and I have friends and family that never dance, but were on the dance floor for most of the night. I cannot recommend DJ Shyne and ECF Entertainment highly enough. You will be so happy if he is your wedding DJ!
DJ Manola (Unisa) did a great job keeping the bride and groom informed and making sure we were on the same page about everything. He was well prepared for the event and flexible with any last minute changes we needed to make. Highly recommended.
DJ Shyne (Jeff) was THE BEST! Throughout the entire planning process he so helpful through emails and face-timing. He consistently answered my questions in a timely manner and gave amazing input for the flow of the night. He helped me stay on track when planning and created a checklist for me to complete during the final few weeks before the wedding. During the wedding, he was so energetic and made the flow of the night run flawlessly. He kept everything on schedule enabling optimal dance time! He got my guests up and on the dance floor the entire night. He made strong connections with us and made sure that our song requests were played. He completely exceeded our expectations!!
DJ Shyne did an amazing job at our wedding and we HIGHLY recommend the company to anyone! He had everyone entertained and dancing the entire night. We spent a couple meetings with him to go over all of the details of the day. He was available to answer any of our questions. Their online portal made it really easy to help organize the wedding. DJ Shyne also helped handle all the details throughout the day from the ceremony through the reception to make sure everything ran smoothly! We originally found the company through our friends who also used them for their wedding. Again, everyone was dancing the whole night! Be sure to keep E.C.F Entertainment DJ's and Lighting at the top of your list when deciding who to choose for your DJ.
DJ Shyne (Jeff) was absolutely amazing. It is the little things that set him apart. He took time to learn how to correctly pronounce the names of our bridal party and family members. He was a terrific MC and kept the dance floor full the entire night. In addition to that, the system E.C.F. Entertainment uses to learn your music preferences was so easy to use and the in person meeting put us at ease that the music would be on point. Lastly, we had some specific song requests that he made happen a few weeks before the wedding. He spliced together two songs for my father/daughter dance as a surprise for my dad. He also took the time to convert a live recording I gave him to a file he could play. The original was a Windows file that he couldn't easily play on his system, but he took the time to make it playable for us.
ECF Entertainment is just fantastic! From the owner Jeff Madar (DJ Shyne) to DJ Manolo who worked at our wedding the guys at ECF were so awesome. In particular DJ Manolo was so amazing with how he helped us plan our wedding reception to the communication between the caterer and our venue. Then when the wedding day came our reception was perfect our friends and family had such a great time dancing. Even when things began to run out of time, DJ Manolo worked hard to make sure that we still got some of the dances we really wanted.
ECF and DJ Shyne were unbelievable to work with! DJ Shyne was so flexible in scheduling planning meetings with a couple who have crazy schedules. He was attentive, provided great suggestions, and rocked out all night long on our wedding day! Our guests commented that night, and still are, about how obvious it is that music is DJ Shyne's passion. The uplighting and photo booth were the best things to add to the event. The color range was awesome and totally fit our decor. The photobooth has amazing quality and fun props! DJ Shyne's assistant running the open air photo booth was so helpful and nice! Not only did ECF do an amazing job, but they had a tricky day to work with: outdoor venue, in a tent, and it started pouring a quarter of the way through the reception. They were ready for anything and never missed a beat. I never even knew they had to shift things to work with my venue and the weather conditions- a bride's dream! We have been and will continue to recommend ECF to everyone we know getting married!
DJ Shyne (Jeff) is simply the best in the area! From the beginning, Jeff was incredibly organized, professional and reassuring that everything was under control. We were so impressed that he remembered all our details from our phone calls and was a total superstar on the day of our wedding. We've received many compliments that the music was a perfect mix! Jeff also introduced us to the violinist Jakub Trasak for our ceremony and cocktail hour - Jakub is insanely talented! Overall this was one of our easiest wedding decisions and we are so happy that Jakub and Jeff were part of our day. We can't say enough good things about ECF and highly recommend Jeff and his team!!
Unbelievable DJ. Josh was so helpful and invested with us.
Jeff ( Dj Shyne). Did such an amazing job at our wedding!!! We couldn't be more happy with how our night went! He's very professional and easy to talk to! I've felt like I've known him for years! :) He makes sure your night is for you and our guest loved everything he played! If you want to an amazing wedding night I 110% recommend him!!! Jeff thank you again!
