We had Uptown Groove perform at our wedding this past weekend and had the best experience! Seth was amazing with all the planning leading up to the day - from getting us exactly what we wanted (a jazz trio to play during cocktail hour and the 6 piece band to play during dinner and dancing) to helping us perfect our day’s timeline. The day itself was seamless! They took care of all sound setup for both the ceremony and reception and Harper was the best MC. It was like having a DJ and band all in one! We got SO many compliments on the band all night, they sounded great and kept the energy high. We would definitely recommend Uptown Groove to anyone considering a wedding band!

Maxwell at Whirlin' Disc is truly INCREDIBLE. We had so many guests at our wedding come up to us and tell us that this was the best wedding DJ they'd ever experienced, and we couldn't agree more. Maxwell had the perfect balance of playing songs we requested, songs requested by guests, and other similar songs that fit our vibe. Our dance floor was full the entire night thanks to him! Plus, Maxwell was extremely organized and professional; from the first meeting where our Zoom consultation was customized to us and our wedding, we knew we'd found the perfect fit. There are no hidden travel fees or other charges, so Whirlin' Disc was one of our easiest vendors to book. We also added the photo booth which our guests loved, and we now have an album of photos from our wedding night to cherish. I can't recommend Maxwell & WDS enough - he made our wedding the best night ever!

Hi! Thanks for viewing my profile! Highly experienced mobile entertainment professional providing outstanding services for a variety of different events. Specialty in weddings, formal/informal dance parties, other private events. I truly enjoy the 'nothing into something' process that happens when I see weeks and months of planning and work , creating a beautiful environment, that reflects the mood and personality of my clients. I love playing music for people, watching them be entertained, from 9 to 89.

Being a photographer for weddings - usually the last question you ask your couples is "who is your DJ" - for Ty & Allie it was no different. They informed me that they hired DJ Steve & I was excited to meet him & get the party going for that night. I had so much fun that night with Steve & hopefully again in the future too! There was always a bunch of people on the dance floor which made my job easy to get some awesome dancing shots. PLUS! He knew how to make the bride happy with playing her favorite T Swift songs! Hire DJ Steve!!

Primo was our DJ at Rosebud Wedding Estates and he was outstanding for every minute from booking, to the planning process, and the day off. His assistants he brought along were extremely professional and helped out to make sure the transition from ceremony to reception went smoothly. And it sure did!! Primo’s dance floor lighting package and uplighting we added on transformed the venue and made it look astonishing. The moving head lights were an awesome touch for introductions and first dance etc. Guests did not stop coming up to us the whole night, talking about what a great DJ we chose and how awesome the music was. Primo essentially planned our whole wedding in terms of how the order of events went and provided all the additional vendors with a schedule of events. All of our calves hurt like crazy after dancing the night away!! Primo had our guests on the dance floor all night and he had to literally ask people to leave so we could do our last dance alone and then the sparkler exit. I cannot recommend Primo enough and will be sure to use him for any future events that we have. Primo is a true professional for his age and you would never guess he is still in college!!!

I can’t speak highly enough about this DJ. We found him through a promotion he was running with our photographers. Our venue was certainly not easy to deal with and was trying to control the entire wedding, cut our speeches short, and was rude to almost all of our vendors. However, Chris fought for us at every turn and made sure we had the best reception experience possible. He was incredibly helpful, punctual, made sure all of our wishes came true, all of the announcements we needed got said, and made the overall experience amazing. I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty at any point during the reception, and this was definitely thanks to the high energy vibes he brings with him. I appreciated him so much for helping execute everything according to our vision and ensuring that we got our dream wedding.

Overall our experience working with DJ David Malachi was absolutely excellent. He was extremely reasonably priced, was more than willing to work with us about setting up payment installments, and the app uses for couples to set up what songs they want to be played at the reception made it overall not only very easy but actually fun to put together something that might’ve been stressful otherwise. David was charming and responsive the entire process of booking and paying. And on the day of, the dance floor was absolutely a party, he did a great job taking certain requests and mixing the songs together while also keeping it pumped up but family friendly! He also went above and beyond to help the timeline be on track during the reception, going out of his way to help call tables and pull a game together of his own making, which got the crowd involved and was so much fun. He was constantly asking me and my husband what we needed and was down to do to be helpful. I would definitely work with him again if given the opportunity!!

I grew up with family members that DJ'd most of my family's weddings CA. But since I got married in PA they weren't really an option and to be honest I am glad they weren't. Stefan was incredibly professional, detailed, and fun to work with. He was so flexible with all the things we had going on. He helped me immensely to ensure that everything was timed well throughout the day. He was a perfect MC, had amazing sound equipment. And more importantly played DOPE A** music. My husband is a skater at heart and so he loves the classic early 2000 music like Mr. Brightside. So much so that he had a whole list of songs he wanted Stefan to play in a series. And Stefan DELIVERED. the entire crowd was pumped up by the songs and it made the whole night that much more amazing. When I say that DJ Stefan is worth every penny I mean it. EVERY PENNY. You will not be disappointed and neither would your guests. Worry free, awesome music, that's where it is at. Thank you Stefan!!!!!!

My wife and I cannot say enough good things about Erich Cawalla and the rest of the Uptown Band. As we continued to try and schedule and reschedule our wedding during this pandemic, Erich was there every step of the way with us. We spent hours on the phone talking out different scenarios and situations to where we could make our BIG day happen, and he would time after time explain, "Vince, I'll play anytime, anywhere. We're going to make this happen!". This is a true testament to the type of people Erich and the rest of the Uptown Band are. Aside from being incredible to work with, their body of work speaks for itself!!! Erich is an incredible performer and musician, and the rest of the band is just as talented. They don't only just play great music, but they all know how to perform. Their ability to get a party started, keep it going, and leave the entire crowd wanting more is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. We could not have chosen a better group to help us celebrate than Erich Cawalla and the rest of the Uptown Band.

I can’t say I wasn’t nervous, as they didn’t have any reviews posted yet, but Jon was very helpful in addressing all our concerns and they kept our guests entertained and dancing all night long! They learned our first dance song- Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves and put their own flair to it, which we loved. They are such a fun mix of rock, jazz, bluegrass, country and played a good mix of songs for all ages. I would also recommend listening to some of their original songs and including them in your day, my husband and I were so happy we did. :) I want to have another wedding just so we can have them play again!

Brian was a pleasure to work with on our ceremony music! Not only is he a true talented professional, he made the process of planning our ceremony music so easy and made great suggestions. We wanted a cello duo with a piano and he made it happen with Chris Ott, who was also great! He was responsive to all my questions and I was so excited he would do a song not on his list, Halo by Beyonce, for my entrance. When I was preparing to walk down the aisle, hearing the beautiful music outside by the lake at the Aurora Inn, felt magical. Especially when my song came on, the music set the tone and made the atmosphere so dreamy and romantic, just what I wanted! If you are considering added musicians to your wedding, you won't regret it, especially with Brian! My only regret is not hiring him for the cocktail hour too. Thank you Brian!!

Awarded Best of Zola
We booked The Hook Club for all of the music moments for our big day in February 2023. Very easy process - They sent a google sheet with questions and for us to comment on music options, so they could get a good sense for our unique preferences. We loved the process & organization, as it made it really easy to collaborate. There was also an opportunity to add requests for songs outside of those they listed - they ended up performing the majority of our special requests! Extremely talented musicians - they performed unique versions of the songs across a very wide range of genres (from classical to 60s to soul to Latin to EDM…). We started with a solo cellist for the ceremony, the funky trio for the cocktail hour, followed by the DJ Band for the reception. All were fantastic, and each helped set the tone for the different parts of our event. Guests had a blast! They danced all night and kept asking us where we found the band as they said they were the best one they’ve ever heard at a wedding! The musicians interacted with the guests on the dance floor and we could tell they adapted their set based on the likes and energy of the room.

I would not have even guessed that so many of my guests would compliment the music and DJ-ing, but that just is a testament to how fun and perfect it was. Justin took the time to get to know us, our musical tastes, preferences, dislikes - he worked with our extensive list of songs we loved and created a great playlist full of songs we love and some songs we didn't know but also really enjoyed! He also did a great job emceeing (not too loud or over the top bar mitzvah style which was our worry!) and making sure the reception went smoothly. When a surprise ending of the night ended up in a fire alarm and tons of fire trucks, Justin rolled with it in the best way - playing lots of fire-themed music -- it made everything so much more fun!

I had multiple people ask me if Tyson knew us personally because the music was perfectly synced to who we are.

Since 1990, The Moonlighters ® have been performing throughout the U.S. as one of the country’s best-loved and most authentic Motown and variety dance bands, covering all your Jazz/Blues/Oldies/Motown/Soul/Disco/Funk/Classic Rock/Pop favorites! Just close your eyes and you’ll swear the original artists are performing. But don’t close them for too long or you won’t be able to enjoy their outstanding dance moves and showmanship.

We're quite saddened by their google review, posted even before we had a chance to actually speak with them to clear up several serious inaccuracies. Our band has HUNDREDS of positive online reviews/satisfied wedding clients. And we'll always accept valid criticism. But this one is mostly false and unfair. As Zola does not provide the option for responding to negative reviews, the following are our comments: 1. Since the bride and groom hadn't hired a wedding planner everything was extremely disorganized as we received their timeline just one week prior to the event, but then they changed it twice more, including two days before. Despite asking for our bandleader's phone #, the groom never reached out to discuss any of these details. In other words, we were given minimal direction in regard to all of the last-minute changes. Even on the wedding day itself, our band was asked to set and reset their equipment multiple times because the bride and groom disagreed with the onsite coordinator's floor plan, moving/resetting the bride and groom table as well! 2. According to what the photographer told us, the bride and groom's limo driver was over 90 min. late, shifting the entire timeline and putting them in a bad mood from the very beginning, as noticed by our bandleader at around 5:15pm when he first introduced himself, prior to the band providing either live or recorded music. 3. Regarding the recorded music, it was only lacking for approx. 45 min. as the band discovered the phone battery issue at approx. 7:45pm, during their first break, quickly rectifying the situation by putting the phone on a charger and then continuing with the recorded music outside from approx. 8-10pm. Furthermore, they made up for it by keeping their system running for an extra 30 min., beyond our contracted time of 11pm. And those comments regarding the afterparty are also totally untrue as somebody from the band was manning the system, until a cousin of the bride or groom demanded that he use her playlist instead, and then she responded angrily when he finally turned off the system at 11:30pm. 4. As for the band's sound system, we do acknowledge some 'hum' issues as there was just one electrical outlet provided for the entire band, resulting in 'dirty power' which couldn't be fully corrected. And we deeply regret mispronouncing the various names as most were very unfamiliar and of Indian origin, despite our lining up the wedding party in advance and writing everything down phonetically. 5. Even though some of the client's emails mentioned solo keys during cocktails, we provided a duo, covering an extra 30 min. of recorded music from 4:30-5pm at no extra charge, as requested. While it's standard practice for a band to take a dinner break during an almost six hr. event, this was clearly-specified in our contract as well. And then we performed continuously from 8:30-10pm, including most of the requested songs that we had prepared well in advance. So their comments about seemingly just 'walking off a bus' are completely false and misleading. In other words, our musicians went 'above and beyond' in spite of some very challenging circumstances. 6. Fortunately, we did receive a 'happy reaction' with a crowded dance floor and TONS of compliments from the guests, some requesting pictures w/the band too, while even the bride and groom were singing along and dancing non-stop, which we were VERY happy to see, making their negative review even more surprising though!

Words can’t express how much we loved working with Ana & Jimmy and the entire Amp DJ Band Hybrid. My husband really wanted a band while I really wanted a DJ, Amp DJ band was the perfect mix. We found Ana & Jimmy immediately and were able to schedule a meeting with them the next day. We knew right away that they were right for us. They were extremely attentive and outgoing from the start. They answered all out of questions and addressed concerns we had. We booked them immediately because we didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to work with them. We met with them several times through our 6 month planning process. They responded immediately to any questions that popped up along the way and even allowed us to make a last minute change the night before. They well exceeded our musical playlist, taking the songs we requested and tailoring the rest of the music to fit the vibe. There was a perfect mix of live songs and an awesome dj set. The amount of compliments my husband & I received about the band far exceeded anything we expected. All of our guests LOVED them (of course as did we). So many people reached out that night or the next day to say how impressed they were with Ana, Jimmy & the whole band. We also had an acoustic guitar player at our cocktail hour which was amazing. If you’re debating getting a band for your wedding because your heart is set on a DJ, seriously look no further than Amp DJ Band hybrid. You will not be disappointed. I want to have another event just to work with them again!

My Hero Zero is absolutely incredible. I've seen them countless in times in State College and my wife was also a huge fan after seeing them in Ocean City/Dewey many times. We reached out to ask about the possibility of them playing at our wedding in Dallas (a quick 24 hour drive from Pennsylvania) and we were so happy that they could do it. Not only did they all make the trip, they also were very easy to work with throughout the entire planning period and wedding weekend. The set up was incredible and they even took some song requests to make everything feel very special. Jason MC'd the wedding and did a killer job. I recommend seeing them at any of their many regular spots to just get an idea of how awesome they are. 10/10 would consider them the best wedding band I've ever seen (no bias)! -Ryan and Alli

Fireside Events was one of the very first vendors we booked for our wedding day, and easily one of the best decisions we made during the entire process. Erinn and Eric are not only totally professional, reliable, and talented at what they do, but they are also two of the MOST fun, welcoming, and friendly people we know. They made us feel special throughout our entire planning process and went totally above and beyond to accommodate some of our unusual requests. They found a way to turn our dream wedding into a reality without ever once missing a step along the way. After our wedding was over, many of our guests told us that Eric was the best DJ they had ever heard at a party. We would highly recommend Fireside Events for your music, entertainment, and party planning needs.

I’m a planner who worked with Madison and her team of exceptional musicians on a wedding at the iconic Rainbow Room. They were easy to communicate with and made themselves available to work through and trouble shoot any songs or moments that were critical to our timeline. Better yet, the music was phenomenal and they went above and beyond that day to keep the energy high and the guests happy. I’m eager to work with them again and cannot recommend them more!

Andrew studied music at Five Towns College in Dix Hills and graduated top of his class. After playing in the Long Island music scene for years, he turned his focus into performing for weddings and special events.

Awarded Best of Zola
We'd wanted a guitarist for the ceremony and cocktail hour to have a very mellow live music addition to the event. After some search, we hired Andrew to play our wedding from only a youtube video and it might have been the best decision we made for that day. Andrew was in contact with us throughout the almost 2 year delay (thanks, Covid) between booking and the event and gave us great recommendations on songs. We went into the wedding with zero playlists and just told him to play whatever - every song was perfect. We only had one requested song which he waited until we were outside to play, and it was great. Our guests still talk to us about the guitarist and how amazing cocktail hour was. Out of everything during the day, who knew the best part would be the first hour? Our biggest regret was not keeping him there for the entire day! You can't go wrong with this man, excellent voice and playing with a wide range. Thank you again, Andrew!

Our song list spans a wide range of genres and eras, so you can pick the tunes that mean the most to you.

First of all: during our reception, countless people came up and asked where we had found this band; they were that good!! This band kept our friends and family of all generations on the dancefloor. Tasteful Tea worked with us to add specific instruments that we wanted for our favorite music genres and had a great song list to look at for reference. They knew how to read a room and keep the party going (without cheesy get-on-the-dancefloor songs). So kind and really made our reception the blast that it was!

We love to be a part of all wedding celebrations, but are especially passionate about events where our creativity can shine. Give us a challenge and watch it come to life! We make the Impossible Party happen.

Kyle made planning our music selections so easy and stress free. The app was was extremely helpful in designating which songs we'd like played at different points throughout the wedding. Being able to leave notes in different areas really made it a breeze to give him a clear concise vision of what we wanted to accomplish and our personal tastes in music. When we met in person to go over finer details Kyle had notes on everything we put in the app and brought up more questions we hadn't considered yet. He was very professional as well as personable. Once all the planning was said and done, my fiancé (now wife) and I just had to kick back and enjoy our special day. Our guests were all extremely happy with the music and we got several compliments as we talked with each table. We had so much fun and our guests were absolutely thrilled on the dance floor

There is an art to entertaining. To create a memorable wedding celebration, you need quality entertainment. Most events I do start with some common elements: guests, music and the client’s desire for the event to be successful. It’s the inspiration in the execution and preparation before the event that distinguishes me from the ordinary. While others may do events by number, I make each event an original, a unique reflection of my client…you! I take inspiration from your dreams and desires. I do not ask you to follow someone else’s format because I will thrive in yours.

Butch was simply phenomenal! He was able to keep our small wedding so high energy it felt like we had a room full of a hundred people! He was so flexible with us as we had so many changes throughout the planning process. He was willing to work with us regardless of what our contract stated, he just wanted us to have the best wedding we could. He was so helpful in planning meetings and his tool was easy and fun for us to use! We asked him last minute to do all the ceremony music and he was even willing to jump in the day of to marry us when we thought we were without an officiant. All of our guests raved about him! We can't say enough about Butch except to HIRE HIM! :)
