Elite Sound and DJ Joe P. were nothing short of AMAZING the night of our wedding and every step of the way planning. Every email and phone call was answered promptly and I felt completely comfortable knowing that our wedding was in their hands. Joe P. had everyone on the dance... Read More floor the entire night with music that pleased every generation. I've received praise and compliments for Elite Sound services from my guests. Besides the music, our wedding was taken to the next level with other features provided by Elite Sound. Our first dance was accompanied with "dancing on the cloud" that had our guests in awe. Throughout the night CO2 blasters were shot off during our entrance and throughout the night. We took amazing pictures when the CO2 blaster was hooked up to a gun that me and my husband were able to use. Light up letters spelling LOVE is a new feature they offer that was on the opposite side of the dance room near the dance floor that our guests LOVED and took several pictures with as a backdrop. Our night was magical and perfect and a huge part of that was all thanks to Joe and Elite Sound.

Hiring DJ Cory and Elite Sound Entertainment for our November 2016 wedding was by far the BEST decision we could have made! From the initial meeting all the way up to the big day, Cory's professionalism and expertise throughout the entire planning process was top notch. Plus, we... Read More loved how easy ESE made it for us to select all our music choices through their personalized portal. With plenty of opportunities to sit down with Cory and discuss every last detail, it was such a relief to know that all our music for the big day was picked out and ready to go! Come the wedding day, everything was absolutely perfect. Cory killed it! From the ceremony to the reception, Cory and his team did an incredible job with the lighting, snap photography and, of course, the music - the dance floor was literally never empty! My husband and I are still fielding compliments from our guests who tell us the variety of music at our wedding (genres, decades, slow/fast) was the best they'd ever heard. The music definitely set the right tone and helped enhance the overall vibe of the entire night. If you're looking for a kickass DJ for your upcoming wedding, we would absolutely recommend DJ Cory and Elite Sound Entertainment. Thanks again for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives!

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... Read More 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... Read More comfortable knowing he was going to kill it. He 100% did kill it!!!

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... Read More 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... Read More 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.

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.

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... Read More 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!
