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.
The only way to describe the music at my wedding is perfect. DJ Jay G had my guests out on the dance floor the entire time. I was actually concerned that the dance floor was going to peak before the main entree was served, because everyone was dancing from the start. Whem my fiancé and I first met with DJ Jay G, we requested a frat party vibe. With the upmost respect and professionalism he steered us towards a more inclusive mix, while still assuring us we would have the party we wanted. Without a doubt he delivered. Venue staff members even commented on the quality of the music and the number of dancing guests. DJ Jay G was also a great MC - making sure that everything from the first dance to the surprise speech volunteers went smoothly. Without a doubt I would recommended Elite Sound Entertainment.
When planning a wedding, everyone tells you "Expect something to go wrong"....Nothing went wrong for us, and we have Danny and the team at Elite Sound Entertainment to thank for that. From the meetings before the wedding to the actual wedding night, Danny made us feel so comfortable knowing he was going to kill it. He 100% did kill it!!! Our dance floor was packed from start to finish and most importantly he played music that EVERYONE in the room, all age groups wanted to hear. We can't say enough good things about Danny and Elite!
Johnny Budz and Danny are PHENOMENAL! As the first wedding of my friends and family they set the bar so high and kept the dance floor packed the entire night! Everyone has told us it was the best wedding they have been to and we had guests (of all age groups) tell us they didn't want to leave the dance floor for a minute because they were afraid they would miss something. The energy in the room was unlike anything we have experienced and Johnny read the crowd perfectly and everyone was so upset when the night had to come to an end. Working with Johnny, Danny, and the team in the months leading up was a breeze as well - we also had a piano player for the ceremony and cocktail hour and used their photobooth and both were major hits. They are true professionals and Debbie at the office is so organized, answered all my questions quickly and was so sweet! We also had a last minute request for the Hoorah and two spur of the moment guest singers (surprises from our parents) and they were so accommodating. Everything flowed perfectly! I cannot say enough great things about Elite Sound and stress if you want to have the most fun wedding and show your guests an incredible time, you must book with them! I have used them for three corporate events now because my company and I just cannot get enough. Thank you Johnny, Danny, and Debbie for the most amazing night and I can't wait to work with you guys more! We are clearly your biggest fans and wish we could relive our wedding over and over again!
We contacted Elite Sound (Cory) after we attended a banquet that he was the DJ/MC of. I knew I had to have him for our wedding and I was not disappointed. He was so easy to work with and he was honest with us throughout the entire process. He was on time and spoke with me a few times before our wedding started. Our guests danced the entire night away and I still hear that our wedding has been the best wedding some of our guests have ever been to. In fact, one of our guests grabbed Cory's information and intends to book him/Elite for her upcoming party and my best friend booked them for her wedding in Sept of 2017. I would recommend Elite Sound to anyone looking for a DJ.
My husband and I got married in early December 2016. Our DJ was Cory; he and his crew were awesome to work with. They honored all of our requests and were professional and courteous throughout the whole event. We would highly recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to anyone looking for a great time at their event! Thank you again for providing such great service to us and our guests!
If you are looking for an insane party from beginning to end than look no further. Johnny Budz has been getting people on the dance floor for longer than I can remember, so who better to hire for the best day of your life?! NO ONE! We literally brought Djais to Seasons and it was the best day ever. Not only friends, but family raved about how much fun they had. No one sat down all night. John is also extremely professional and honest. He doesn't oversell and provides opinions and insight based on his many years of experience. I am so happy we went with Elite Sound and I cannot thank them enough for all of the hard work and effort they put into my wedding day!
Corey not only made our wedding our own he helped us create exactly what we needed to represent ourselves and our music philosophy. We loved working with Corey and will do it again in a heartbeat.
DJ Johnny Budz and his crew were amazing! They know how to keep people dancing! Our guests were so pleased to see a variety of music for every age group and they kept the dance floor packed all night! We also had a photo booth and candid photographer with Elite. Both were AMAZING! The candid photos are such a nice touch for the wedding. Guests really enjoyed seeing pictures scrolling throughout the night on the plasma tv's. The photo booth was never empty and there were so many props! We absolutely loved Elite and cannot wait to use them in the future for another gathering! Thank you guys again you are amazing!!
DJ Steve and our MC Mike were absolutely superb. We discussed the wide range of music we wanted to hear a week before the wedding to accommodate the wide range of people who would be at our wedding, and they simply knocked it out of the park. They had great energy and kept the party going all night. I would absolutely recommend Elite Sound to anyone planning a wedding or any other type of event!
DJ Joe P from Elite Sound Entertainment was terrific! From our first meeting, he listened to what we liked and wanted. He had the dance floor full for the whole wedding and we received multiple compliments on how much fun people had dancing. Joe made the whole process easy and I will definitely be recommending him to our friends.
Jay G was AMAZING! I can't thank him enough! He and his whole team did an amazing job and we will never forget it. He really kept the dance floor packed and we make sure everything from the ceremony to leaving the venue felt perfect! My husband and I really felt our opinion and thoughts were valued during the planning stages. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Our wedding was everything and more than we could have ever imagined thanks to Elite Sound Entertainment. Danny G and the team were incredible from the time we began our meetings to our BIG DAY! From the live musicians for our ceremony to the great mix of music during the reception- they had the dance floor packed for 4 hours straight! Thank you Elite Sound Entertainment, Danny G and the team, including our candid photographers which we have some great shots of everyone dancing the day away. We recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to any future bride's and groom's looking for help creating the perfect wedding- you will not be disappointed!
Steve rocked it! We are still hearing about how awesome our DJ was. He had all of our guests on the dance floor all night. He took our recommendations and literally incorporated them perfectly. The photo booth was also awesome and guests had so much fun since there was so much space. We love our photo album we received with all the photos taken by our guests! Literally can't even put into words how amazing Elite sound was and how awesome and easy it was to work with Steve throughout the process!
Danny Gee was incredible!! It was hard for us to figure out what kind of music would work for both our styles and that would go well with our wedding. Danny was energetic and did a fantastic job at reading our group. He kept everyone on the dance floor all night, and even kept them singing along from their seating during dinner! I would recommend Danny to anyone looking for a DJ. He was very professional, and kept to our timeline perfectly. I was not as pleased with our photo booth. I did not feel like we received the service I had hoped for given the money we spent. We were told that since we had an average about of photos taken, that it was not as big of a deal. During the wedding however, I felt like every time I looked over, the booth was closed. We also booked about a year out of our wedding and definitely felt like we were off of their radar for a while. Understanding their a large growing company, I didn't love the customer service. Overall, yes to Danny Gee, the rest depends on your wedding day budget and vision.
What can we say about Elite Sound Entertainment? They are the BEST New Jersey has to offer! During our entire planning process we were so pleased with everything the guys at Elite Sound did for us. From our first meeting with Johnny Budz he made everything so easy and simple. We were all about adding some extras to our package with them which included: a step and repeat, dancing on clouds, and CO2 blasters. Our step and repeat backdrop was BEAUTIFUL. We could not get over how nice our design came out! We used the step and repeat as a favor and our guests absolutely LOVED them! We had even bought frames and the step and repeat photographer actually put each and every picture in a frame in time for the end of the wedding. For the dancing on clouds, it just made our first dance that much more breathtaking. My husband and I had choreographed our first dance and we knew the dancing on clouds would just be that added wow factor to get all the feels! Looking back at some photos and videos from friends, it was pure magic. And finally the blasters! They were perfect for every high point during the night! For our entrance into the party as husband and wife, and of course throughout the night when the dance floor was packed. Our MC Mike was excellent! He did a great job getting everybody pumped and keeping the bridal party organized! Finally our DJ Johnny Budz... just the best end of story. My husband wanted JB from the start from all the glory days of DJAIS and it was a dream come true for us! Johnny is relaxed, professional, and just knows exactly what he's doing. He listened to our requests, followed a great progression of music as the night carried on, and left us with the best night of our lives! We had TONS of our friends telling us they left their hearts out on the Crystal Plaza dance floor that night, and that's all thank to you JB! Thank you Elite Sound Entertainment for providing us with so many wonderful things that made our wedding unforgettable, and beats that rocked the entire night! We love you guys!
We found Elite Sound on Wedding Wire and we couldn't have found a DJ to entertain at our wedding. We asked DJ Jay G and he was amazing! He kept our crowd on the dance floor all night! He knew how to get everyone dancing and reads the crowd better than anyone. We also rented the photobooth from Elite and it was perfect. The guests love the photobooth (who doesn't?) and the set-up, props, backdrop etc. was perfect. Jay and his team make for a fantastic night at your wedding. Book them!
DJ Steve M was fabulous! He worked with us through our entire planning process and was so helpful with everything! The team was incredibly professional and accommodating. Priscilla in the office was so attentive and responded quickly to any inquiries. We had some unusual music requests for our wedding and Steve was ready and willing to make them happen. Everything was wonderful, we couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks Elite!
Danny Gee was exactly what we were looking for in a DJ. From the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and of course the reception the music was perfect. He made picking out each song practically effortless for us and everything flowed together very nicely. I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
It is hard to put into words just how amazing DJ Jay G made our wedding night! We read so many outstanding 5 star rave reviews about him before we met him and we just hoped he was available for our wedding date. Everything that was written about him was true. He is kind, professional, thoughtful, helpful, and full of great ideas! We emailed Jay so frequently throughout our engagement and planning. Jay would get back to us almost immediately all the time! He was so responsive and that makes a huge difference when planning a wedding and needing to make a lot of decisions. To DJ a wedding of 170 people and have the dance floor packed THE ENTIRE NIGHT until the last song takes talent. Our guests did not want the party to end. Jay kept the positive vibes going the entire night and helped make our celebration amazing! Mike and Jon (light technician and photo booth attendant) also made our wedding night so memorable. They were extremely professional and kind. The lighting was beautiful and our guests had so much fun in the photo booth! He even edited the font on the photo booth print out just to make me happy! At the end of the night, we gave them wedding favors because we felt like they were more like friends and really appreciated all they did for us! My husband and I are indecisive and when meeting with Jay he had great ideas and suggestions. For example, we had our hearts set on a song to enter to but Jay was right when he said it was a little slow and wouldn't really pump up our guests. We liked his suggestions and are so glad he helped us! At the end of our entrance when our guests were so happy and cheering for us, Jay threw in the song we loved and it meant so much to Brian and I. It surprised us and only Brian and I knew about this touch but it was so thoughtful and made us so happy. Jay played all the songs we wanted and so many other great ones. I am a bride who loves oldies and Jay incorporated so many great classic songs. My dad wanted to surprise me with our father/daughter song. He called Jay before our wedding and they came up with a great combo for our dance. I did not know what it was until Stevie Wonder came on and we had a very special moment. Not all brides get to dance and enjoy their own wedding. My experience couldn't have been further from that because I barely left the dance floor! It was the best party I had ever been to :) We knew we picked the right DJ when we were just as excited to have Jay as a guest at our wedding as well as in charge of our entertainment for the night. Knowing how many weddings Jay DJ's, we felt like ours was his best and number one priority. He takes so much pride into his work and it really shows. We highly recommend Jay because we know you will feel the same way. You will feel like your wedding is his priority and you will feel honored to have him throw a great party for you and your guests. Look no further - book Jay and he will take care of the rest. If you love to sing, dance, and throw a one of a kind party for all of your family and friends, then you will be more than thrilled with your experience with Jay. It sounds cliche to say it was the best night of our lives but it really was a dream come true. It would not have been possible without Jay, Mike, and Jon. Thank you, Elite Sound Entertainment! You helped make our dream become a reality and you allowed us to celebrate with our loved ones in an unforgettable way! Jay, we can't thank you enough! Love, Maureen & Brian
Cory and Elite Sound Entertainment were amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Cory and his team had the entire wedding dancing all night. If you don't choose Cory and his team for your wedding you are making a mistake. We wouldn't have had anyone else share our special day with us.
I cannot thank DJ Jay G and his team for helping us have the greatest night of our life. The dance floor was packed all night and the music was beyond what we hoped for. Thank you Elite Sound for helping us wow our guests with our wedding!
Elite Sound Entertainment was beyond amazing to work with! This review is long overdue, but we certainly never forgot because Elite is unforgettable! We are SO happy we chose Elite Sound Entertainment for our wedding at Westmount Country Club on 7/8/16. Cory Fandel DJ, Mike Montalvo MC, and the rest of the Elite team did such an amazing job!! We left our very first meeting with Cory knowing we were choosing Elite and that we weren't going to look anywhere else. Cory is professional, easygoing, and super talented! He made our experience so easy and fun. Not only did Cory give us awesome music, he helped us pick out other elements to add to our wedding. We had a beautiful monogram gobo of our names projected on the wall in our reception room, which made the room look even more awesome! Elite also provided CO2 blasts as part of our entrance, a fantastic photo booth and scrapbook, and compiled and displayed our baby photo montage on plasma screens. Elite even provided a pianist for our cocktail hour. He was amazing. The music Cory chose for our wedding was perfect!! Cory and Mike kept our guests on the dance floor all night and everyone talked about how great they were. Our guests even told us that our wedding was the best they’ve ever been to and I’m sure it was because of Elite. We are so happy we didn’t meet with any other DJ companies. We wish we could do our wedding all over again to have the experience we had with Elite again. We will always recommend Elite Sound Entertainment to everyone we know. Thank you Cory, Mike, and the rest of the Elite team!!!! Our day was the best day ever. -Tisha and Ricky Merola
