Temple Concord, Binghamton NY
I have to say that Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disc
Jockeys LLC was incredible! As an event planner
myself, I can truly appreciate all of the time,
effort and detail he put into my event.
Starting with all of the planning: his willingness
to drive for meetings down to Binghamton (an hour
from his office), his easy access via. email, and
his great suggestions for making the event as upbeat
and memorable as possible - he is a true expert at
what he does. (and we even had a little British
humor wrapped in to it all...)
Kevin was truly the Master of Ceremonies for our
son's Bar Mitzvah, took charge and made the event
run so smoothly that my husband and I could enjoy
the evening without worrying about the details.
Kevin worked very well with our caterer, our
videographer, photographer and our Temple caretaker
and he was instrumental in making the flow of the
evening work well for everyone.
His staff, his DJ and the two young men "motivator"
dancers were extremely professional and really did
the job they were hired to do. The dancers really
engaged the kids and kept them having a great time.
I heard nothing but positive comments from my
children and the others about how "cool" they were.
Even the adults were commenting about how great they
I believe that Kevin went above and beyond what he
was hired to do for our event. Given that he
probably does this every weekend (maybe more than
once), he treated our event like it was the only one
-- with his complete attention and care. Kevin took
the time to really personalized the evening to our
family and to my son Noah.
The quality of Kevin's equipment is first-rate, just
like he tells you it is. The lights, the video
camera, the bubbles and the music were amazing and
truly high quality. He created a lovely montage
utilizing my photographs, but taking the time to add
in "jazzy" transitions, music and a cool rock-n-roll
The party Kevin created for us was truly geared to
all in attendance - both the adults and the 50+ kids
(ages ranging from 6 - 16). Everyone was up and
moving and having a great time. That is exactly what
we wanted. It was truly a magical night and I thank
Kevin for helping to make it that way. I will
absolutely recommend him to others and I hope he is
available for my twin's B'nai Mitzvah in 2011.

Review: We were referred to
Kevin by a friend in another city. I was impressed the first time that I
spoke with Kevin. He insisted on meeting with us and going over all that he
has to offer. I had already spoken to other DJ's that were outside my local
area and they never offered to come and discuss their production with us. At
our first meeting, it was clear that Kevin had spent a great deal of time
learning his craft. He was informative, but not a hard sell. His expertise
was evident and his commitment to putting on an excellent 'show' was
Before the event, Kevin came to
the location and arranged for the room to be laid out in such a way to
optimize the entertainment.
The evening of the event was
outstanding! Kevin played music that the children could dance to. The games
he had the children involved in, made it easy for the reluctant ones to get
on the dance floor. Kevin grabbed the kids attention and they responded!!
The adults were also able to
dance and have a fantastic time as well.
I would highly recommend Kevin!

We were thrilled with Kevin's DJ service at our son's
Bar Mitzvah. Everyone said that they had a wonderful time. The kids had a
ball, and spent the whole night dancing and playing games. One week later
people are still talking about how much they enjoyed the Bar Mitzvah. Kevin
was great with the kids and ran everything professionally and by schedule.
People loved the Cup of Life Ceremony, and it was a wonderful way for us to
get pictures of the relatives with our son. Thanks Kevin for doing a great
job with all of the details, and for hosting an extremely fun and memorable

Every aspect of our daughter's Bat Mitzvah celebration was flawlessly
executed. Kevin and his team of professionals kept the kids and the adults
entertained and involved the entire evening. The orchestration of the
evening was timed perfectly and all the details handled. Kevin's equipment
is impressive - everything from the sound to the lights is top notch. The
dancers were friendly, professional and made all the kids feel comfortable.
Leading up to the event, Kevin kept us on schedule. The on-line tools,
especially the playlist feature, allowed our daughter to feel that it really
was her party while allowing parental oversight of the selections. There is
nothing we would have changed with the event and extend our most sincere
gratitude to Kevin for his professionalism and partnership in planning /
executing our special occasion.

I want to thank you again for all that you and your
crew did to make Caralyn's Bat Mitzvah celebration the wonderful experience
that it was for her and all of us. Everyone had a great time and the kids
had a blast! My family and friends are still excited and continue to tell
us what a great party we had. My neighbor's 6 year old son said that the
party was "the best day in my life"!
Even the folks in our town are still talking about the
party. Most of Caralyn's friends are not Jewish and had never been to a Bat
Mitzvah ceremony or celebration and they had certainly never been to a party
I think that having the party at the Stone's Lodge was
a good idea after all. We first booked you for Jacquelyn's Bat Mitzvah
celebration five years ago. I remember I found you through an online search
because I did not like any of the entertainers I had seen at my friends
children's Bar or Bat Mitzvah parties. If you hadn't shown up Jacquelyn's
day would have been a disaster and a terrible memory. Instead you came
through for us with flying colors and exceeded our hopes. Jacquelyn and
Caralyn both had wonderful celebrations that they and their friends enjoyed
immensely. As you might guess it's not often that the kids in Vermont get
to party like that. Having a party with lights and bubbles and a light up
dance floor was cool and fun, but ultimately the reason the kids had a
great time was because they were entertained and the celebration flowed
seamlessly through the planned events because of your skill and expertise.
We are just now looking at the pictures our photographer Fran took, and
there are some fun ones of you too having a good time looking dapper in
your tuxedo and so chill in the sequined shirt!
Thank you, Thank you Kevin : )
Sincerely, Ivy Schwartz
Kevin and his staff were excellent. Everyone had a
great time. He has a great stage presence.
Everyone loved his accent.
His light show was outstanding, better than promised
and he kept the adults and kids busy all night.
He gave us his recorded introductions and candle
lighting ceremony on disc at the end of the evening.
We were also impressed with his knowledge of how a
Bat Mitzvah should be run.
Thanks again Kevin.

Yes, it is
true.......you are, indeed, the "PREMIER DJ" and I will
never forget how you added such a wonderful dimension to the success of
Samantha's Bat Mitzvah! You and your crew were fantastic in every
was captivating and, as an entertainer, you had the entire party in the
palm of your hand. Mario's staff is still talking about your
performance as being beyond anything that they have ever
been in the restaurant & banquet business for decades!
attendance will be talking about Samantha's party for years to come!
I am proud to
have had the opportunity of working with you
( the unexpected
"OLD DOG" Grandpa YMCA routine) and spending a marvelous evening with
you. I wish that we had more time to spend with you, but one never
knows what the future will bring.
The next time
you are in Rochester, please let me know and I would enjoy hearing from
stay in touch and I wish you continued good fortune.

Thank you Kevin and your team for a fantastic bat
mitzvah party for our girls. The people cannot stop raving about how well
you kept everyone engaged and participating without even being over the top
as many MCs tend to be. The kids were having such a great time during the
cocktail hour that the adults could not resist joining in - first time I see
that happen at a Chicago event!! Hats off to you. You are the consummate
professional and we are extremely happy that we took the chance to bring you
in from out of state - you did exactly as you promised and delivered like a
champion. And the montage you created was amazing. Thanks for everything.
You are 110% recommended by us.
Kevin for our daughters Bat Mitzvah,

first conversation, Kevin was
actively involved, open with advice,
and committed to making the day

The form allowed us to choreograph

to lead the planning of events was

was hot, and the video montage was
very touching...the dancers did a
great job of getting everyone up
and of handing out all the crazy
giveaways you suggested we spice
things up with! Your Cup of
Life recommendation was a wonderful,
unique way to honor the important
people in Peter's life...to see the
smile on my son's face and to watch
him with his buddies on the dance
floor was worth EVERYTHING to me...a

I don't have too much time
to write now, but wanted to send you a few
words and thoughts regarding my experience with
Kevin Colangelo this weekend during my
daughter's bat mitzvah.
I haven't even had a
chance to speak to him yet to debrief and thank
him.So I hope you
don't mind that I am copying him on this
First, Kevin Colangelo is a
professional through and through.
The depth of character and
experience that he brings to the occasion are
What is even more
surprising given that he has been doing this so
many years, is that he made me feel like I was
the only bat mitzvah he had ever done. He
listened to me, he was thoughtful and
compassionate and worked so very hard to create
a meaningful experience for me and my
family from the very beginning.
For such a busy
person he was very dependable and reliable with
his follow up calls.
It was not necessary to
baby sit him and constantly check up to see how
things were progressing.
He promised a top grade
product and he delivered that and more.
I felt privileged to
have him be our DJ and master of
I feel grateful for
the thought and effort he brought to the

smallest detail - he thought of
He was careful and
surveyed the site prior to the event even
though he has worked there on many occasions.
He did not take even the smallest risk of
spoiling our event.
We worked and planned
this occasion for two years.
I only needed a few
phone calls with Kevin for arrangements because
he was so knowledgeable and efficient.
His attention to every detail both
technical and emotional allowed me to be free of
any concerns regarding his end of the deal
He delivered a first
rate experience and all the guests commented on
how well the kids behaved.
That was due in large part
to Kevin's brilliant orchestration and
thoughtfulness regarding their interests
We had over 100 kids -
same number of adults so I think his
achievement is even more impressive.
went so far as to be so thoughtful and sensitive
to my very close friend's child who has
I asked Kevin if he
could allow this child to observe the technical
aspects of the event.
Kevin was receptive to my
request and went well beyond the call of
duty. This child (age 11) had the time of his
life and his parents and grandparents glowed the
entire time - not only did his act of kindness
change one life but the after effects will live
on as evidenced by the pictures that his mother
so proudly sent to me today.
My friend whose
daughter had a bat mitzvah several years ago
summed it up best, she said, if she had
had ten children she would have worked with
Kevin Colangelo ten times.
I am a clinical
psychologist by training and I can not emphasize
how intuitive and sensitive Kevin was to our
emotional needs regarding this event.

Talk about kick
butt parties! I have to say you guys did a
fantastic!!! job...the room looked great with
all of your lighting and special effects...the
sound system was outrageous and the dancers were
especially fun (Chad was a great addition) and
of course DJ Kevin was flawless. Our
guests are raving about the whole

so much effort. We would never plan a Kevin

From the service, to the
party, we could not have asked for a
better Bat Mitzvah celebration. Robyn

lot of events over the years and we
always aim at hiring the best people who
compliment each other. We are very

you as you are clearly one of those

will be hard to compare.
