DJ Danny Gee is the BEST. He was incredibly helpful during the planning process and made each step as easy as possible. And the day of was PERFECT.

FIVE STARS!

We were very happy to have chosen Elite Sound Entertainment. Our DJ was Steve Minichini and he was great - he pretty much played most of music or style of music we requested, and he was a really good MC for the event. I highly recommend ordering the Photo Booth. The guests had... Read More a great time using it, and Elite puts together a scrap book for the bride and groom, and they also post the photos to their website. It's a really fun (and funny!) souvenir from the event. There were only two things I'd change: Firstly, I probably wouldn't have ordered their uplighting because the color wasn't what I was expecting (and when I met with Elite in person before the wedding, they didn't have any uplighting in the office that I could test out). The lights also weren't particularly strong. Secondly, I wasn't expecting to see the Photo Booth operator helping herself (and possibly on behalf of her colleagues) to the buffet at the cocktail hour. We had ordered 3 vendor meals, which no one ate - and I had told the guys in advance that we had ordered them. This is small, but if they had hold told me they planned to grab something from the buffet and skip the vendor meal altogether, it would have save us an additional $150 plus tax plus service charge (so somewhere north of $200). Man, weddings are expensive enough! Still, when it came to the actual music, Elite did a great job. I would recommend them to others (but maybe think twice about ordering the vendor meals!)

Let's just Jay G is one of the BEST dj's I have EVER met. He's extremely personable and such a down to earth person. On our first visit, after we left, we talked about him the whole way back home bc we were so happy and had a gut feeling that this was our guy. So easy to work... Read More with and his DJing/MC skills are incredible. Like a Calvin Harris kind of incredible (considering my husband wanted 99.9% of the music to be EDM, lol.) Everyone danced, literally all night. Since we had a small wedding (50 guests) that was one of my biggest concerns was that we wouldn't have many people dancing but it got pretty wild (in a good way)! It was simply amazing & I can't thank him enough for creating such a wonderful night for us. We loved him!
