Cory and Elite Sound Entertainment were the best pick for our wedding! All night our guests kept telling us how fantastic the music was, and Cory kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Leading up to the wedding Cory was super easy to work with, and we would definitely recommend him and Elite Entertainment for your wedding day!
Danny Gee is the best!! If I could do my wedding over I would pick him again a 1000 times!! He was only a text away every step of the process. Even when we had a last minute change an hour before the ceremony Danny was able to accomadte us.He had our entire wedding on the dance floor the entire time. Everyone at our wedding had a blast and danced the entire night. When the last song played everyone at the wedding was chanting "one more song" and Danny of course rose the occasion. Couldn't ask for a better DJ. You are lucky if you get to work with this guy and this comanpy. We couldn't be happier. Thank you Danny and elite sound entertainment!!!!!
Our wedding was a dream come true thanks to Elite Sound Entertainment. Johnny Budz and his team were energetic, attentive, and helpful during our meetings to create the perfect outline of our wedding night. Everything was perfect from the music, the lighting, photo booth, and the voice over speeches during our parent dances that surprised the guests. We were in awe how the dance floor was packed all night with an amazing mix of music. Our wedding was a month ago and we continue to get compliments about how amazing the Dj was and how perfect the night went. Thank you Elite Sound Entertainment for the best night with amazing memories created at our wedding. We recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to everyone who wants individual attention and help to create the perfect wedding night.
Out-of-this-world! My husband and I can't stop talking about how fascinating our wedding day was. We are astonished by the professionalism of Raul and his team. They looked out for every detail and made of that special day an unforgettable one. They are the best we've ever experienced; with their dedication and creativity our wedding dream came true. Thank you for such a phenomenal and memorable experience.
Joe P gave us the best dance party ever. He played a mix of popular songs and classics. Everyone in the room was up dancing the entire night. The energy in the room was like nothing I've ever seen. Joe was also a pleasure to work with. He was fun, polite, and experienced. He gave insightful suggestions at our meeting, and perfectly executed the vision we had of our big day. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose Joe and Elite Sound Entertainment.
I cannot say enough about Johnny Budz and Elite Sound Entertainment! They recently did our wedding and we could not have been more pleased with their services. Johnny Budz and our MC Mike got the party started from the moment we walked in the room and that definitely set the tone for the rest of the night. The flow and transitions during the reception were effortless and that had much to do with our teams experience and expertise in the wedding industry. Everything was perfect from the music, the lighting, and our personalized Step & Repeat. Our guests have not stopped raving about how great the music and atmosphere was. Thank you Elite Sound Entertainment for giving us the most incredible night with memories that will last a lifetime! You won't regret booking Elite for your wedding!
We met with owner, John Budz, to discuss our entertainment needs for our wedding reception at the Tides Estate on May 19, 2017. He reviewed all of the options (we chose C02 blasters for our entrance, dancing on the clouds for our first dance, and DJ services for our 4 hour reception). After we booked our DJ/MC package, I communicated with office manager, Debbie Mercier, about payments and planning; she was polite, professional, and prompt in her emails and phone calls. Our final meeting was with our DJ, Steve; he confirmed all of our music selections. At our reception, the DJ/MC ensured that all of the special moments (introductions, first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, garter toss, bouquet toss, and cake cutting) were perfect. The Elite Sound team did an amazing job at our reception! A variety of music kept the dance floor packed all night. Thank you Elite Sound! -Tara (Werner) and Paul Quagliato
Jay G was fantastic. He was very responsive and really easy to work with. He was quick to understand our taste in music and the tone we wanted in our wedding and completely delivered. The dance floor was packed the entire night and all of our guests keep telling us how great the DJ was. We can't recommend or thank him enough for making our wedding incredible.
Elite Sound was wonderful – they truly kept my husband and I and our guests on the dance floor all night. Our guests can’t stop talking about how great the music and atmosphere was. We worked with Steve, who was super helpful in guiding our music choices. We always felt comfortable with him, and he was kind enough to edit our first dance song to sound just the way we wanted. I definitely recommend their Father-Daughter/Mother-Son Dance Voice-over – it’s a really special touch.
Danny G was a great DJ. He asked for some of our favorite music and songs to be played to make it more personal, and the rest was his idea. The guests were truly entertained, they never get to stay on their seats. Everyone was on the dance floor!!!
Dj Danny Gee was our Dj for our wedding on July 29,2017. Not only was he a great Dj and had everyone dancing all night long, but he was also a really nice person. He was calm, assuring, and just the nicest guy. A few of my friends are getting married in 2018, and they all asked for his card at the end of the night.
Cory was amazing! Everything went to smoothly and everyone danced the entire night! Thanks so much Cory!😀
Danny Gee & Elite Entertainment were a great choice for our wedding. Adding the percussionist, Mark Turner, was a AWESOME addition and brought the music to another level.
I can't say enough amazing things about Jay and the staff at Elite Sound Entertainment!! They did an amazing job at our wedding!! They played such a great variety of music that our guests from every age group were up dancing all night! I can't tell you how many compliments we got on the music!! I would highly recommend Jay and staff for any and all wedding/party needs!! Thank you again!
Can't say enough amazing things about Elite Sound!! From the moment we met with Joe, we felt that the personality of this group was so much more in line with what we were looking for vs. the more "Jersey" options in the area. We booked with Joe and were so excited, but then we had a family emergency where we had to move our wedding. Elite Sound worked with us to move the date and find a new DJ as Joe was booked and we were equally as happy with Cory! My husband and I LOVE dancing at weddings, so having a DJ that kept everyone else going with us was so important. Cory captured the exact vibe we were wanted for our wedding and kept the party going ALL night (we had an extra hour too!). He was so great at feeling the right moment to transition to the next song, spaced out the slow songs perfectly and didn’t MC too much. We got so many compliments from our guests on how much fun they had and we know that Cory and the team at Elite Sound was a big part of that!!
Cory Fandel was an amazing DJ- he kept our guests dancing all night! People were so impressed- a guest at our wedding even wants to use Cory for his daughter's upcoming wedding! Working with Elite Sound Entertainment was so easy, they were not pushy, didn't try to get us to buy a bigger package or anything, and were very professional. You won't regret booking Elite for your next party!
Steve and Elite Sound Entertainment are the best! We shopped around a bit for DJs because the music was the most important thing to us, Elite Sound Entertainment blew other companies away. At our wedding, everyone was up and dancing the whole time and many of the guests gave us compliments on the DJ! Steve was just so easy and nice to talk to. He understood what we wanted completely and took it to the next level. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so much fun! Elite Sound Entertainment is the way to go!
Elite Sound did an amazing job for our wedding! Cory made the whole planning process extremely easy and stress-free! Any questions we had, he got back to us right away. He totally understood all of our needs and exceeding our expectations! Our guests raved over the music selection and the dance floor was PACKED all night! Our MC Mike was awesome and everything ran perfectly! Music is such an important part of a wedding and Elite Sound, Cory, and Mike did a phenomenal job of making our wedding the best night for everyone!
Elite Sound Entertainment did an amazing job at our wedding!! Cory was phenomenal and great to work with! He kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Mike the MC was wonderful as well! We got SO MANY complements on the DJ and the music from our guests. I am so happy we chose Elite Sound!
Joe and his team did an amazing job making our night absolutely incredible. He was so flexible and really worked hard to meet all of our desires for how our night would go. People danced all night, including us! He truly helped to make the most important day of our lives so memorable! We would send anyone looking for a DJ in the area to Elite!
LOVE Elite Sound! Thank you to Danny Gee our DJ for the evening. He made the night so special for us as he played the music we loved and kept the night rocking! He didnt miss a beat and even took on any curve balls we threw his way! Thank you to Elite Sound you guys are the best! Highly recommend!
The first DJ we met with when planning our wedding was Joe Paolillo from Elite Sound Entertainment. We immediately felt like he would do a phenomenal job but me and my husband felt it necessary to explore our options. No one even compared. Fortunately for us, Joe P was still available for our date and we booked him. He was everything we expected and more. He played all of our requests and did an amazing job reading our guests and knowing exactly what to play. Our guests were dancing ALL NIGHT. We even had several engaged couples ask us who our DJ was so that they could possibly book Joe P for their wedding. My husband and I would 100% recommend Joe P to DJ your wedding.
Jay and the entire Elite Sound team were the perfect fit for our wedding! Our dance floor was packed with everyone dancing. Jay felt out the vibe from the crowd and did an amazing job with the music. He made us feel so comfortable and would make sure to come up to us if we needed anything at all. I highly recommend him for every wedding!!! Awesome guy and amazing team! The photobooth was another big hit at our wedding too! We were able to take a home a book filled of pictures from the night with some sweet messages next to the pictures from our guests. Awesome memory for rest of our lives!!
We were recommended to Elite Sound Entertainment and DJ Joe P. by our videographer, and are so happy that we were. I planned our entire wedding from out of state and didn't even meet Joe until our wedding day, but at that point he felt like an old friend. We had so many conversations through phone and email, and Joe was always responsive and helpful. A few days before the event, he called to go over all the last minute details to make sure that everything ran smoothly. We were so happy with the music throughout our entire event. We received compliments from so many people about how awesome the music was and how much fun they had...my husband's grandmother even made it to the dance floor for a little while! Joe somehow even managed to work in my special request to have some oldies music played for my father. Joe was more than willing to accommodate everything that we asked for, and he checked in with us during the evening to make sure that everything was okay. We would highly recommend DJ Joe and his team!!
Where do I begin? From the moment we met with Danny Gee, it was instant, genuine, friendship. He offered us a beer (and maybe a shot) as soon as we walked in the door and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and at home. Everything we requested was made a priority and when we couldn't make a decision ourselves, he made the best suggestions we could've asked for... so much so that the songs he suggested became part of our wedding video and are now a part of our forever favorites. The night of our actual wedding, all of this came to fruition. From start to finish, it was honestly perfect... and all of our guests agreed. Danny Gee made us feel like we were family and at this point we consider him that. He is hands down the best DJ in New Jersey, and probably well beyond. I couldn't imagine celebrating our big day with anyone else leading the night. Thanks Danny... you're a good friend and even better DJ. Stephen & Andrea
