"Everyone Was Having So Much Fun"
"Mark was great, very professional, went above and beyond, offered services
we would have never thought of. We thought our friends had some great DJ
but Mark blew them out of the water. From the beginning till the end of the
reception, Mark ran the show but was never the show. We had guests come
up to us and families saying this was the best DJ they have ever heard at
any event. Everyone was having so much fun we had to tell Mark to stop
playing music so guests would go home and we could go to sleep. The
games were so much fun, kept the mood light and everyone entertained. We
wouldn't change a thing."

"I Loved How Everyone Danced And Had A Blast"
I wanted to let you know how wonderful you were. Everything was planned
perfectly. You played the music at the EXACT right time and timed everything
perfectly. The music you played was perfect. At my wedding I had people
from 3 years old to age 89 and you played all the right music, for all the
ages. I loved how everyone danced and had a blast. We couldn't have had
a perfect wedding with out you. It's true, the DJ makes the wedding and sets
the mood. I am SO happy I chose you. I talk about you all the time and tell
EVERYONE about you. All I hear about my wedding was, "you had a great
I loved the music at your wedding, it was so fun!" There are not enough words
to say how awesome you were. I recommend you to everyone. If you ever
need a recommendation, please feel free to call me, I have NOTHING but
good things to say about you. Thank you so much Mark, Thank you and
thank you, I can't thank you enough."
"The Creativeness That Made Our Celebration Unique"
We can never thank you enough for your guidance, patience and wonderful
ideas ! The creativeness that made our celebration unique.
The personal touches that made our celebration were all Mark's ideas, but
never felt contrived nor did the guests know we didn't come up with the ideas
on our own. Every comment we have had indicates that our celebration
was different and fun, not the old standard reception. We had exactly what
we hoped for, a rocking good time.
Mark not only sets the tone with the music & entertainment but coordinates
with the other vendors to ensure everything flows. He did this without being
asked & whenever we drew a blank, he filled it right in!"

"You Did An Outstanding Job"
From our first conversation, I knew we had the Man for the job! When you
said," I'm not just a DJ ," I don't just play music" It cemented the deal. Then
we met you, your professional manner, passion & knowledge assured me we
had made the right choice. Now that Laura & Anthony's wedding has taken
place it's time to tell you THANK-YOU! You did an outstanding job. So many
family & friends asked about you & told us what a great time they had.
Even Anthony's college baseball friend,(Joe L.) told Laura & Anthony they
need to" Have a Five year Anniversary Party so we can do this again!" My
neighbors are still sore from dancing so much. A couple had to cancel their
exercise classes. Our families from Illinois & Ohio as you saw, were Not
leaving & just kept asking for more.( I think we warned you;) And to think this
was just TWO days after your own wedding! The lighted Monogram was a big
With our warmest regards & thanks,

"Absolutely Excellent Service"
"Mark kept our reception time line on track, even despite a late start. He
worked with other vendors (one difficult one) & made sure everything flowed
smoothly. He gracefully handled requests. Everyone commented on how well
they liked the music, from grandparents to 20 something.
We had more people dancing throughout the night than we've ever
noticed at other weddings with some of the same guests. Absolutely
excellent service. We couldn't be happier that we were lucky enough to find
Mark. I've already had one single friend request Mark's info for her hopefully
soon wedding! Thank you Mark!"
