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!

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.

Review: Kevin played a major role in my daughter’s wedding and his
professionalism was unmatched that day. His preparation to detail and his
experience shined on our special day. Kevin knows exactly what to say and
when to say it and more importantly, ‘how to say it’. He was a pleasure to
We received many compliments from our guests, as well as we asked Kevin to
do some different things and he performed them flawlessly. He knows how to
read a crowd; his voice is spectacular and his clarity is outstanding.
Thank you Kevin for the splendid job you did at Jennifer’s and Ryan’s
wedding. We had guests from 6 states and they all commented on what
wonderful job you did.
Kevin is at the top of his trade. His experience and professionalism truly
shined on our special day!

Review from the
Bride Jennifer Phelan;
Colangelo went above and beyond to help me make my wedding day
unique and one-of-a-kind. I live out of town so I had to rely on
emails and calls to correspond with him, and he was professional and
helpful the entire time, making me feel like everything would fall
into place. From special requests (Kevin cut our first dance song
for us) to specific details (cueing, song choice, etc), Kevin made
sure that no detail was overlooked. He listened to what I wanted and
offered advice as needed. The day of the wedding I was given a very
special surprise by my Father. For his speech he had secretly worked
with Kevin to do a musical timeline of my childhood and even though
they had never practiced this 'performance' it was flawlessly
coordinated. There was not a dry eye in the room. I have no doubt
that this very sentimental moment would not have happened, if it had
not been for Kevin's care and compassion. Because of that, it was a
moment that I will never forget. Thank you Kevin for running your
business with professionalism, grace and honesty, you have my

Kevin DJ'd a close friend's reception last year as well as my own
this September. Our friend's wedding was an absolute blast and I
was impressed with how Kevin gauged the crowd and played an
outstanding mix of music that kept the dance floor packed all night.
Needless to say, I was excited that we had Kevin booked for our
wedding the next fall.
cannot thank Kevin enough for the job that he did at our reception.
We have received numerous comments from friends and family that it
was the best reception they have ever attended. There were 150
guests and nearly every one of them (from ages 8-80) was on the
dance floor the entire evening.
let Kevin pretty much run the entire evening and our play/don't play
lists were very short. The music selection was awesome, the right
mix of classics and new hits. As with our friend's wedding, Kevin
did an incredible job of gauging the crowd and giving the people
what they wanted.
impressed me the most about Kevin was his level of professionalism
and preparedness. Our planning meeting before the wedding was
invaluable as Kevin offered several suggestions on the order of
events and the flow for the evening. His experience really showed
here and his suggested timeline for the evening was perfect. We
could not have planned the schedule better and are very grateful for
all the various vendors required to pull off a wedding, Kevin very
easy to work with and the one whom we felt most comfortable with and
confident in. I would recommend him without reservation as he has
nailed two home runs at both weddings I've been to. Thanks again

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,
Mike & Nancy Beardsley

Kevin is a true professional and great at what he does. From our first
meeting to the end of our reception Kevin never missed a beat. It's
refreshing to see someone take as much pride in their work as Kevin does. If

Kevin was the most wonderful DJ- although the term
does not do him justice. He was so much more than a DJ. After our first
meeting he was overflowing with ideas to help with our wedding and sent me
all kinds of recommendations and webpages to help. Every question I had,
even non-dj related was quickly and thoroughly answered. He is so creative &
knows how to work with your ideas and take them to a whole other level.
Our reception was a huge success. He was able to read the crowd & he knew
just what to play at each moment. He had everyone from 20 year olds to 70
year olds up dancing and having a blast. He had this amazing idea for our
entrance into the ballroom that fit our unique theme perfectly and left
everyone raving over it. He made us feel like royalty. Every little detail
was thought out. He is just so knowledgeable about the wedding industry and
can provide so many valuable insights- so listen to him! He really knows
what he is doing!!! We had a fabulous time & 7 months later people are still
talking about how amazing our wedding was & I credit a lot of that to the
fabulous entertainment that Kevin provided. Thank you so much Kevin!
