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... Read More 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... Read More 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... Read More 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

Talk about AWESOME - Jeff Mader AKA DJ Shyne was excellent. We worked with him rather closely through the whole process leading up to our wedding, and his input and feedback was crucial to how everything went, which was perfectly. We booked for our wedding and spent a lot of... Read More time searching for the right person. We had an interesting conversation about music with Jeff and his passion for this and for music and it was clear there was literally nobody else we could choose. Our guests were coming to us after the wedding and telling us how excellent our DJ was. Never seen that before! Jeff played the songs we specifically asked for and was able to mix things for us to time everything perfectly. We gave him some songs to play, a bunch NOT to play and then creative freedom for the rest. It was awesome! The dance floor never once was empty. Not. Once. Bullet Points: 1) Excellent DJ and musician. 2) The online portal allows you to pick and choose your music. Very easy to use. Awesome. 3) The pricing is more than fair. 4) Knows how to get the crowd moving, great speaking voice. 5) He helped plan and coordinate things with other vendors. 6) Seamless song transitions, excellent uplighting placement. 7) If you're reading this, you need a DJ. If you want just good, go elsewhere. If you want GREAT, book with ECF Entertainment.

We cannot properly convey the energy and excitement DJ Shyne and the Boston Common Band brought to our wedding without using at least 100 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From the moment DJ Shyne and the Boston Common Band signed on for our wedding, we felt like we received A+... Read More communication. Months before the wedding, DJ Shyne spent over an hour on a Skype video call with us so we could "meet" face to face and discuss the wedding. DJ Shyne had a list of questions he asked us and then listened to the vision we had to make our wedding day perfect. He wanted to know everyones' names, how they were spelled and pronounced, who was related to whom, how we wanted them introduced, our first dance song, and on and on. After that phone call, we felt totally relaxed that the dance party would be epic at our wedding and IT WAS. At the reception, DJ Shyne introduced our wedding party, parents, and us. He did it with an extremely contagious energy that spilled over into the dance party later on! Every guest was up and dancing and enjoying the DJ and band!! At one point, a singer from the band came right into the crowd of dancing guests and broke into a 5 minute Michael Jackson dance that was SPOT ON. Everyone thought that was so much fun! The band let us come up on stage with them and lead a song's chorus and we had the chance to interact with our guests from a different perspective. We took several dance lessons before the wedding for our first dance and it was something we were both super nervous about executing. Before cocktail hour started, DJ Shyne did two run throughs with us playing the song and deciding where we would come onto the dance floor and how it would look. He made us feel so comfortable that by the time we came out to do our first dance, we were excited and couldn't wait to show off our moves. :) We had SO many guests tell us at brunch the next morning how much fun the band was, how energetic the DJ was, how interactive the band was, and how much fun they had!! We cannot say enough about how dedicated they are to what they do. We would recommend them to anyone and WILL find a way to work with them again someday!! Thank you guys so much - you are truly special and one of a kind in the wedding world!! Most sincerely, Lindsay & Derek Coutu

We booked E.C.F. Entertainment and DJ J Boogz (Josh) for our December 2nd wedding at the Bedford Village Inn and they were better then I could have ever imagined! Starting with the planning process, from our first conversation with Josh we could tell he was a true professional... Read More who was extremely passionate about his career. From there, Josh was great at making sure we got everything done in a timely matter without rushing or pressuring us.

From working with the venue to make sure we stayed on schedule to the introductions he did an amazing job. The reception was a BLAST. Josh had EVERYONE on the dance floor all.night.long. I saw family members I've never seen dance on the dance floor, and after the wedding heard plenty of "I don't normally dance... but....I couldn't help it!". It was truly a dream come true!

I may be a little biased here but we had by far the best DJ of any wedding I have ever been to. From beginning to end Jeff was a ROCKSTAR! To start, after speaking with Jeff, we were sold. His knowledge on music and equipment and how to best use the space far exceeded my... Read More expectations. We booked Jeff really early in our wedding planning process and he would check in every few months to see how we were doing and asked how he could help. When it was time to sit down and talk about music, he walked us through step by step and made us think about things we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He suggested amazing versions of songs and how to get the most people on the dance floor. On the night of the wedding, because of Jeff, people we're on the Dance floor even before dinner was over and most people didn't leave the dance floor all night. Jeff was AMAZING to say the least. We are still getting compliments about Jeff and constantly being asked for his contact information. If you are getting married, you NEED Jeff Mader at E.C.F. Entertainment!!

My wife and I could not have asked for a more seamless and outstanding DJ experience than we got from DJ J-Boogz and E.C.F. Entertainment.

Josh was acutely professional every step of the way; walking us through the online module (which allowed us to pre-select our must-plays and do-not-plays while filtering requests from our guests), helping us to visualize the flow of our day-of schedule, and customizing a cocktail hour, dinner, and dance-floor playlist that rocked everyone's socks off. DJ J-Boogz flashed his professionalism and MC-prowess all night long, taking the vocal reigns only to guide the evening when necessary, and otherwise allowing the music to bump the speakers.

He comes with our absolute highest recommendation, and is sure to make your day memorable!
