Fourth generation DJed my wedding on 6/11/2022. They were horrible. I don’t even know the name of the DJ because he never introduced himself. The MC Makai was amazing though. I had to ask for my cocktail hour music to be turned up because it wa...
s so low nobody could hear it. They played my cocktail hour songs during my reception, and I had to ask multiple times for them to play dance music. I love to dance so It was really disappointing that for a lot of the reception they were not playing dance music. I had to request to do my father daughter dance because it was a half hour into the reception and they still had not done it. Every other wedding I’ve been to the father daughter dance comes right away after the entrances. We gave them two song request lists, one for me and one for my husband. For the beginning of the wedding they totally disregarded his list until we brought it to their attention. My 85-year-old grandmother traveled all the way from Florida and requested salsa music, they never played it. We requested the explicit version of songs and they did not do that. There were a ton of songs on our request list that they did not play, and they took it upon themselves to play whatever they wanted to. They ended my night with songs like the middle by Jimmy eat world and blink-182, I don’t like this kind of music. They really ruined my wedding.

This team was amazing and worked with our budget. They were efficient in communicating and they scheduled out our whole reception and it was done well! They made sure to stay upbeat and get our guests and our bridal team excited! We had so much...
fun with them and their percussionist was AMAZING! It was so entertaining and he seemed to really enjoy what he was doing... they all did! We used their uplighting and photo booth which was great! Our guests had a great time! I highly recommend them and it is worth having their percussionist! It adds a little bit more flare and flavor to your night and was so worth it!

We loved the service provided by IV Generation Entertainment at our wedding. Originally we had met with Jenn, the music coordinator/wife of the owner, to go over what type of music and the songs we wanted played at our wedding. She was friendly...
, personable, and helped us decide on the music that we wanted played. She provided ideas and took the time to help us decide on what we wanted. She made us feel very comfortable and treated us like family. The DJ was included in our package for our venue, and we opted to get the MC as well which we would recommend. The owner himself, Frankie, was the MC for our wedding and he was awesome. He struck a perfect balance of being on the mic and getting people dancing/moving, but also had down-time so it didn’t feel like he was always on the mic and trying to get people to participate. The DJ also did a great job of playing to what the crowd was enjoying, so there was never a dull moment nor song. Several guests complimented us on the music, for playing both the oldies and pop culture music.

We used IV Generation for our wedding as they've done family parties in the past- just for DJ/MC service. DJ & MC were fine. Our issues were with the additional products- a package we paid $750 for that included Zaps, Plasma TVs to displays t...
he Zaps and a video montage; as well as a photo-booth package that ran us $600. We received exactly 107 Zaps, and no exaggeration when I say about 60 were duplicates. There was 5-6 Zaps of each of the 10 entrances for the wedding (so in essence we had maybe 45-50 different pictures), no Zaps of cocktail hour which we discussed was important to us as we missed it, and the pictures we did get were overall of very poor quality. I know zap shots are not professional pictures, but I've seen many Zaps at many weddings and these were poorly done. Additionally, none of the zap shots made the plasma tvs- the main purpose of having both. There was a still shot of myself and my wife from 7-10:30, minus the video montage that played for 2+ minutes.
We called our DJ the week of the wedding to confirm a head-count, at which time they gave us a count of 5. I found out when trying to tip out everyone that the Zap person was the same person responsible for running the photo booth to direct my guests to leave a copy and a message in an album- this person I also found out after the wedding was Frank's son who started high school the week after our wedding- a 14 or 15 year old. Guests have since told me he didn't give them any direction at the booth and rather spent much of the night sitting on a table and playing on his phone- a book we had to pay them $100 has about 6 photo booth pictures/messages left in it for a guest list of 180. The 14 year old that was responsible for both the Zaps/plasmas and the Photo booth didn't do either job well. Probably because he is 14. My aunt was almost kicked while walking to the bathroom as he was doing handstands in the hall.
When I called Jenn, Frank's wife and the main coordinator at IV Gen, there was absolutely NO accountability. I never received an apology, but instead was told that the issues were due to our expectations as to what we paid for rather than both the booth and Zaps packages being completely unacceptable. After calling multiple times I was told a refund of $250 would be given- calculated by the DJ as 1/3 of the $750 Zaps package that we were unhappy with. Still a steal for the DJ as by my calculations I was screwed $80 for a plate I paid for a vendor that never showed, $500 for 2/3 of the Zaps package that was totally unsatisfactory, $600 for a photobooth and $100 for a book that wasn't properly advised any direction on- about $1280 we paid for for all of that.
Jenn advised they'd refund $250 after Jenn spoke with Frank- then Jenn didn't return my call for two weeks. When I called back I received no answer again. I called again and finally got Frank, who told me "Jenn took care of it and it's on your credit card." Also was not true. I then got a runaround that Jenn was in the Carolinas for another week and it would be handled then. I had to call one additional time as nothing was again refunded. Finally I received a check in the mail- for $200, not the $250 agreed on after almost a month of chasing.
I don't care how good the DJ/MC experience was. The scheming, non-accountability, under-delivered additional products prevent me from ever recommending this company again. Beware and make sure EVERYTHING is signed and in writing.

Fourth Generation DJ was hired to do our wedding. We were told that if we hired our own DJ Company (Fourth Generation DJ was the house DJ for the venue), Another DJ Company wasn’t allowed to use the speakers, lights and TV screens at the venue....
So we hired them. After carefully explaining to them that we wanted our guests on the dance floor all night and were extremely open to all types of music putting only a few stipulations, which should had made it easier for them to come up with a well-rounded playlist. Well as the night went on they played the same old tired wedding songs that I heard in other weddings. When the dance floor emptied out with only one or two guests dancing, which was often because of the music, they didn’t even try to change the song. At times it seemed that the DJ was just one of those wind-up monkey toys just letting the pre-recorded mixes play. On a positive note the Zap shot photographer did a great job.

Frankie and the MC were great! They were so filled with energy, had a good mix of music, and keep a good fluidity of the night. They all had a friendly personality. They took request from our guest but also ran it by us if some of the request (...
including putting the volume down) were cumbersome! These guys were great! Geeze it is hard to get a negative but some guest complained that the photo booth attendant wasn't very helpful...I can't provide details on that. They did pick a slow version for my father daughter dance without my request (original was fine) but now I realize that Frankie was easy going enough I could have corrected him! Overall, love them and would highly recommend them!

Frankie and the team DJ'ed my brother and sister in laws wedding in 2010 and kept the party going all night. So when it was time to for us to select our DJ we knew we had the easiest decision to make and went to them for the music too.
perfectly timed the music for our ceremony. Frankie motivated the guests to get on the dance floor and participate and they played all the music we personally requested.
They handled the uplighting in the reception room for us too.
Very professional, on time, and good value.

n awkward nick name that he called him throughout the evening which was weird, and he also just did some weird things throughout the evening. Also we bought an "extra" called ZAP shots, we paid for our DJ to take pictures of the dance floor throughout the evening, at the end of the night we got two cds full of pictures from the evening which we thought was great. We looked at the photos when we got back fro our honeymoon, the pictures were great but we were a little disappointed that there were less than 200 photos. we were told we would be getting 500 photos so we were disappointed bc we paid so much for it. so I just suggest if your thinking of zap shots tell them you are expecting a lot of photos or save the money and just have friends and family take photos and give them to you after.
