Do you want the best wedding you could possibly imagine? Pick Elite Sound Entertainment. The moment my wife and I met with Johnny originally we knew on that day we had found our wedding DJ. He recommended we select Danny G for the night of our event and boy did he steer us in... Read More the right direction. Danny was an absolute pleasure and was patient throughout the process, taking our calls on several separate occasions and running through the night of details a few weeks before. The attention to detail was outstanding. We had several special request songs for my wife, her family and friends and Danny was able to track them down in high quality for the wedding and was able to mix them in masterfully throughout the night. My crowd did not stop dancing and Danny and his staff knew exactly what to play and when to keep them on the dance floor. After the last song, my friends and family started chanting for one more song and Danny obliged... I've never seen that at a wedding before! Everything about Elite Sound Entertainment was absolutely perfect, and several of my guests who had weddings within the past few years said our DJ was the best. Thanks again Elite Sound!

Elite Sound Entertainment, and specifically DANNY GEE, met and exceeded all of our hopes and expectations for our wedding this past Friday, 6/9/17. I can't tell you how many compliments we have already heard about him, just a few days after the wedding. We originally heard of... Read More Elite Sound Entertainment from our times down the shore at Djais, and knowing the type of DJ Johnny Budz was, we knew his company would offer the style we wanted for my wedding. They set me up with Danny Gee and we couldn't have been happier. One of the most important things I can say about Danny is that he was RESPONSIVE. Always!!! This might not sound like a big deal, but we learned (and you'll all probably learn) as wedding planning went on, that vendor responsiveness was sometimes an issue. This was not the case with Danny, who made it clear we could reach out to him at any time. I recall one time him pulling onto the side of the highway to answer an e-mail I sent him. Completely above and beyond! As far as the music, to start, Danny helped us pick out so many important songs for our ceremony and reception, and they perfectly fit the mood and ambiance we were looking for. And most importantly (in our view), Danny had our guests up and dancing the entire night. We gave him an idea of our preferences, but also realized it's important to let him do his thing, and he found a way to get everybody up and rocking through the night. He played different sets with different themes and really had something for everybody up there. One of the best compliments I can offer was from a guest who has a completely different taste in music from us. She came up to us the next morning and said that she came to the wedding expecting to hate the music (considering our musical differences), but left absolutely loving it. He really found a way to make everyone happy and we could not be more thankful. Danny Gee is the MAN!!!
