First of all, our apologies for taking so long to give our feedback! We
left for our 3-week honeymoon only a few days after our wedding and have
only just settled back into reality.
We were both extremely pleased with DJ Kevin's performance at our
wedding. He was very attentive to the pace of the wedding and to our
needs as we visited from table to table, and later during the evening
exceeded our expectations as far as reading the mood of our guests and
accommodating all of our music requests. That he looked just like Billy
Bob Thorton didn't hurt either!! :)
We thank him again for an amazing day, we wouldn't have changed a thing.
Our biggest wish was for our guests to have fun, and there is no doubt
in our minds that they did. Nearly everyone was grooving to the music
and no one wanted the celebration to end!
All the best,
E & W

Review From Mother of
the Bride: Kevin Colangelo
was recommended to me for my daughters wedding
reception by a friend of mine who hired Kevin
twice for her son\'s and daughters wedding
receptions. She obviously liked him enough the
first time to hire him again. At our first
meeting with him I was impressed with his
background, talent and professionalism. With his
excellent website we were able to conveniently
plan the complete DJ itinerary for my daughters
wedding reception. He answered our questions in
a timely manner and was very attuned to every
detail. The timetable of events during the
reception flowed smoothly. The music played was
enjoyed by all ages and I've never seen so many
people dance for so long at any reception I've
been to! The bride and groom had the best time
ever - it was way beyond their expectations! I
definitely give Kevin a thumbs up!

Review from Bride Christine;
Kevin did an amazing job DJ’ing our wedding. He
played the perfect mix of slow and dance songs
to get everyone up and dancing. He provided
wonderful advice related to speeches,
introduction songs and the anniversary dance. He
was very careful about making sure everything
went just right and he succeeded. He also did a
great job engaging our guests and taking their
requests. I've received such terrific feedback
about our reception and Kevin's performance in
particular. Thanks, Kevin!

My wife and I could not possibly be happier
or more satisfied with Kevin's services.
We understood that Kevin was pricier than
other DJ services.
We believed that someone who could make our
reception memorable would be worth it.
The dance floor was constantly packed!
Our guests told us, with conviction, that
they enjoyed our reception MORE than any
they had been to before!
Retrospectively Shelley and I would describe
Kevin more as a MC than a DJ.
The way that Kevin 'read' the room, to
assure all our guests had fun was the
His ability to keep our guests engaged
throughout the evening was what made our

Michael and I just wanted to
thank you so very much for
the most wonderful job you
did with our wedding.
Your ideas and suggestions
were so incredible and made
such a difference in our
day. They made such a
difference and really added
to the beauty of the day.
The music was great and you
kept the reception moving in
a terrific way even though
we were behind time wise.
You and your staff were very
professional and so easy to
work with. Michael and I
didn't know until that day
that your company did
Michael's brother and
sisters wedding too. A
great tradition to start in
the Silverman family!!!
Thank you so very much for
all your hard work and for
making our special day so
great and wonderful. We
couldn't have done it

Review: From the first time
I saw Kevin in action about
5 years ago at one of my
friends wedding I knew that
the day I got married he was
going to be the one and only
DJ I called! My wife was
against only checking out
one DJ for the wedding (you
know how women get about
wedding details) but she
trusted in what I had to say
about Kevin. after coming to
an agreement on the cost of
the services which I felt
was very reasonable we not
only booked Kevin as our DJ
but also his wedding photo
booth. we wanted to do a
different wedding favor
because everyone pretty much
throws them out or never
takes them anyway. so we
went with the booth. what an
awesome idea!! people raved
about it all night. They
were having the time of
their lives playing dress-up
and feeling like a child
again. It honestly was the
greatest idea Kevin gave me
for the event. and if I
didn't trust his judgment I
probably would have not done
that. So thank you Kevin!
Approximately one week
before our wedding Kevin
drove all the way from
Geneva NY (finger lake
country) to our wedding site
which i believe was 3.5
hours away just to meet with
me and Brittany and discuss
what WE wanted to see for
our wedding. It was a 2 hour
meeting He completely made
our wishes and vision come
to life. I honestly don't
know of many company's who
would do that for their
clients. At best I expected
a phone conversation about
what we wanted. We talked
about everything from music
to up-lighting and
everything in between. My
wife felt so comfortable and
excited after meeting him
and seeing what live art he
was going to paint for us
and our guests. And to top
it all off when him and I
first spoke I told him that
i only wanted him (Kevin) to
run our wedding and not
anyone else from his company
he took the job. I was very
impressed with him after he
said he could be our DJ
personally. I really thought
he wouldn't want the job
because it was so far from
home for him but he accepted
personally and with ease.
Its been almost a month
since our wedding and we
still see people who all
they do is talk about how it
was the best wedding they
have ever went to in their
lives!! how Kevin was the
best DJ they ever heard at a
wedding and they also cant
get over the lighting
inside the main dining room.
people told me its like
something they only see on
TV. Since the wedding I have
several friends who will be
married in the next few
years, and also my own
brother who will be having a
band at his wedding in
October want to book Kevin.
he was so impressed with him
he wants to have him create
memories for his wedding
Kevin blew our mind away
with the music, lights, and
his level of
professionalism. My wife and
I were so blessed to get the
opportunity to experience at
our wedding what Kevin does.
he truly is the best!! There
really is no other DJ out
there who can compare with
Kevin, again...HE IS THE
BEST!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

Review: Kevin was great from
the day we met with him to
discuss his services. He
had so many great ideas on
wedding details other than
just his DJ services, he had
unique ideas from his years
of experience and we used
some of them and they were
such a special addition to
the wedding! Not only does
he have a great website to
use along the way during
planning but he will travel
to meet with you to go over
details and help in the
planning process and make
sure then venue and his
service runs smoothly. The
music was fantastic and
every one was dancing all
night long until the last
song was played. He also
did up-lighting which looked
AMAZING! We also booked a
photo-booth and that was a
huge hit and you get a copy
of everyone\'s at the end
and its a great guest book
to keep after to look back
at. Kevin\'s energy and
thoroughness really are
appreciated and am sooo
happy we chose him for our
wedding! THANK YOU Kevin,
you did a great job and it
really means a lot to us
that you were a great MC for
our wedding. All our guests
were very impressed and
continue to ask us your
name. Keep in touch, Good
luck in everything!

Review: We were very happy with Kevin\s
services. Before the wedding, we had an hour-long call with him to talk
about the details of the event, minute by minute. Kevin\'s experience
was clear as he told us how to structure the event (i.e. make sure that
no one is clearing dishes during the speeches). He was also excellent
about finding the music we wanted and even remixing certain songs to fit
our needs. Day of, Kevin and his team arrived on time and were all set
up as expected.
The event went smoothly thanks in large part to

Review: Kevin Colangelo did such a great job at our wedding reception. The
lighting, music, planning and coordinating, not to mention the energy was
outstanding. We have had so many different people ask us who our DJ was
after the wedding. He was very dedicated to bringing everything we wanted
together and really making our night very special. Thank you so much
Kevin!!!!! Amazing is really the only word for his services!!!

Without ever meeting Kevin in person until the day of our actual wedding, my
wife and I booked Kevin during the wedding planning process after speaking
to him one-time on the phone only. Kevin was so thoughtful and walked us
through everything that he would do for the reception. He really listened to
what we wanted and ensured us that he would make that happen (and he did not
disappoint). Furthermore, about a week before the wedding, we had a 2 hour
conference call where we reviewed every last detail. Needless to say, before
ever meeting Kevin or hearing his music, I knew we had the right guy.
Now on to the fun stuff....Kevin was an absolutely amazing DJ. Full stop.
When I say that every song he played seemed like the perfect fit, I really
mean it (my friends/family agreed as well because they could not believe
what a great DJ we had). After getting a feel from us for the type of music
we wanted to have, he started out with some classic oldies to get the
dancing started. This was earlier in the evening so it was great for our
older guests. But by the end of the night, he literally had the place
dancing like crazy (mostly me and my wife's friends at this point). But the
way that he transitioned from song to song and MC'd the event as perfect.
Also, I am from outside of New Orleans so I wanted to make sure I had some
of my hometown music, which Kevin was able to make happen as well.
If you are looking for a DJ that isn't cheesy, knows how to MC an amazing
party and is a true professional, then search no further. I strongly
recommend Kevin for his services. If you are not convinced by
recommendation, then I would suggest you call him to get a sense for what a
good guy he is and what a fantastic DJ he can be for you!

Review: We were extremely pleased with the
complete service we received from Kevin
Colangelo. This includes the pre-planning
discussions, pricing, the functionality of
the online planning website, as well as
Kevin's attention to our questions and
With regard to the reception itself, Kevin
ensured everything went off without a
hitch. We had asked for some additional
requests that required his assistance
(custom introductions, surprise guest
singer, hall acoustics, up lighting, etc)
which he ensured were executed properly.
Most importantly, Kevin and his assistant
made sure the party was a party to
remember. The flow of the music and the
order of the songs he played were perfect.
The crowd was involved and dancing the
entire night and everyone had a great time.
We receive tons of compliments and positive
questions about the DJ. We would definitely
recommend his service. Thanks!

Wedding Reception and Ceremony
Traditions at The Links at Erie Village, Syracuse NY
In our almost 60 years, we've attended more weddings than we can count.
Never before have we seen a performance that comes close to the production
that Kevin and his team created for our daughter.
From the set up at our outside wedding on somewhat difficult terrain to the
6 hour reception that followed, everything was simply perfect.
Our guests were awed by Kevin's equipment and the professional manner in
which he kept the reception moving along. The dance floor was never
empty...many danced to nearly every song...straight through to midnight. And
yes, several even climbed to the top of the tables to dance.
The photo booth was a huge hit...we heard many positive and fun comments.
The thoughtful backlighting of the sweetheart table and nearby columns was a
Thanks to Kevin and his team, our daughter's wedding has now set the "gold
standard" for "DJ" entertainment against which all future weddings will be
evaluated (and we counted at least 24 upcoming weddings in our friendship
circle over the next several years).
Thanks Kevin for delivering an "evening to remember"---you made our
"reception jitters" disappear and made us comfortable that our special
evening was in your very good hands indeed.
Thanks so much,
