Review: My husband & I were very
lucky to find Kevin! He was a great help not only with
music selection but also wedding reception etiquette. He
had many well thought suggestions which we followed and the
results were wonderful. He was fun and professional! The
only issue was he does not charge enough. Based on his
expertise, equipment, lights, time setting up and breaking
down in addition to coming to the venue a week prior to make
sure the table layout & dance floor layout were appropriate;
he should have charge us 3 times what he did bill us. I
would also recommend getting the photo lounge! Our families
had a great time and his staff were excellent. The photo
book was much better than the standard sign-in book. It is
full of fun photos and well wishes, it is a wonderful
keepsake. I wish I could do it all over again, Kevin made
the reception more fun than I could have hoped for!

Kevin Colangelo is
absolutely the best around! We never knew how
good a DJ could be until we met Kevin. He was an
excellent speaker that night and kept the
reception running smooth. He was easy to work
with and gave excellent suggestions based on his
experience that truly made our reception
exceptional. We booked the photo booth as well
and it was amazing how much our guests enjoyed
having their pictures taken...guests from their
20s-70s were in the booth having a blast! We had
almost 300 guests that had a variety of musical
interests and Kevin was able to entertain
everyone with a range of great music. His staff
was courteous and professional. My husband and I
had a great time! Our guests were very impressed
with Kevin. Thank you so much!!!!!!

Our guests told us, with conviction, that

Review: 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: Kevin Colangelo
was a fantastic DJ! From our first meeting we
knew that our reception would be fantastic.
Planning the music for the reception was a
breeze with the online website. The forms were
very easy and helpful. He also took a lot of
time not just during our first meeting but also
met with us at our venue a couple weeks prior to
the wedding to go over floor plans, lighting
We were both extremely
pleased with his performance at our wedding. He
was very attentive to the pace of the wedding
and accommodated all of our music requests. The

reception that they had been to in years!
We highly recommend

was not only very attentive and receptive to our
needs and concerns prior to the event, but he
demonstrated his attention to detail as he
carried out these plans.
We were so happy that
we went with Kevin for our ceremony sound and
music. The ceremony went flawless and the music
was played exactly how we wanted it. His
suggestion for music selections for both the
ceremony and reception was a big hit as well.
As far as the
reception, the dinner music was perfect for the
setting. When it was time to pick it up,
everyone was on the dance floor! The lighting
and sound system really help make the event as
well. Everyone could hear the toasts clearly and
that was a huge plus for us as we have been to

Review: When we were first looking for DJ
services we were disappointed to find a huge
lack of interest from disc jockeys; that was
until we found Kevin. From the moment we met him
he was enthusiastic and willing to offer us a
ton of advice since we were very inexperienced
with throwing a wedding reception. He made us
feel very at ease and through out the entire
planning and event none of us had to feel
nervous about the celebration. Kevin was able to
work with us to give us the kind of party that
people are still talking about day after day! We
are getting emails from many out of state and
country guests that say that have never had so
much fun at a wedding before and that the DJ was
so amazing. Literally, the dance floor was
packed the entire night! We would recommend
Kevin to anybody putting on an event. He is
professional, energetic, and very knowledgeable
about what he does. We couldn't have been
happier with out wedding day. It was the perfect
day and thanks to Kevin we had the time of our

Review: Within about 5 or 10 minutes of
meeting Kevin Colangelo, I knew I wanted to hire
him to be the MC at my wedding. Kevin came
to my parents house the fall before my June
wedding. He spent around three hours with my
parents and I describing in detail what he could
do for us at my wedding. He was very animated
and expressive, even getting up out of his chair
at times to describe some of his wonderful
ideas. My parents and I hired him that night-we
knew we had the right guy for the job!! We were
definitely not disappointed. As the time
quickly approached for the wedding and more
contact was made with Kevin, he was always very
prompt in responding to phone calls and e-mails
and always spent whatever time was needed on
these phone calls and e-mails. Kevin always
offered extra wonderful ideas. When I was
concerned about how to make my groom\'s side of
the room for the reception look/be more
attractive, Kevin suggested we put high top
tables and a bar over on his side
. This worked out fabulous! Kevin was fabulous
at the reception as well doing his best to play
as many songs as I had requested. He was
professional and classy all the way through!! I
would highly recommend Kevin for your next

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

were very impressed and
continue to ask us your
name. Keep in touch, Good

Review: Kevin Colangelo
is a professional in every way who went above
and beyond what we expected to help us make our
wedding day and reception a day we will never
forget. We scheduled a meeting with Kevin on a
recommendation of a family member after our
original DJ company we had hired for our wedding
went out of business suddenly. With only a
couple of months before the wedding, we were out
our deposit and unsure where to turn. We were
very lucky Kevin was available. He not only
recommended ways to recover our deposit, but
also gave us a discount on his services given
our situation. His generosity and assistance
made such a difference to us.
Kevin was very helpful
in helping us plan our reception, the timing,
feel, lighting in the reception room, etc. He
even met us at the wedding site a few weeks
before the wedding to help diagram everything.
On the day of the wedding, Kevin arrived early
in order to ensure all of his equipment was
ready and tested well before any guests
arrived. His sound system, lighting, photo
booth, and staff were all top notch. Kevin was
great during our reception at helping us keep to
our scheduled timeline, keeping the guests
entertained, and playing a great selection of
music. Kevin is a true entertainer who has
worked enough weddings to know what works and
what doesn't and to read the feel of your
reception and guests and make changes on the fly
We would not hesitate
to recommend Kevin to any couple who is looking
for a high quality DJ to make your wedding day
even better. We had numerous people remark
during and after the wedding on Kevin's work.
We have pictures of nearly everyone at the
wedding out on the dance floor because of Kevin
and we have a great keepsake of hilarious photo
booth pictures too. A great DJ can really
enhance any wedding reception and Kevin
Colangelo is the best in the business.

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 Kevin's assistance.

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!

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 webpage's 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

I don’t even know where to begin! You made our wedding perfect.
From the very beginning when we first talked with you, you gave

day was magical! We’ve had so many comments from people saying
that our wedding was by far the best they’ve ever been to- and I
credit that to you. Your song choice & the timing of the songs
was just perfect. You had everyone dancing all night long- from
the college aged people to the oldest guests there!

would not have been the same without him! All of the guests
commented on how much fun he was! I loved all the ideas he had
to involve all the guests – things like giving away the
centerpiece, bouquet and garter toss – that you see at every
wedding, he had great ideas to make them fresh and exciting!
Also – we had friends that were celebrating their 1st wedding
anniversary at our wedding & he had the best idea how to make
them feel special.
Kevin helped to create memories that we will not likely forget.
Also – he used inspiration from the venue to set the tone for

I'm super glad that Kevin convinced us to meet with him before
giving us a quote. He drove 45 minutes to my house just
for a meeting! No strings attached. He came prepared to
answer questions and give suggestions on everything from music
to seating arrangements, never once asking or hinting at signing
a contract on the spot. If Kevin hadn't insisted on a
meeting, I may have gotten a DJ that I disliked or didn't mesh
with my husband and I just because I was being frugal with the
budget. Turns out that Kevin worked out in budget and
completely EXCEEDED my expectations! The DJ is a very important
part of the party... without a great working relationship with
him/her, your reception could be a disaster. I want to
thank Kevin and his assistant from the bottom of my heart for
making my wedding reception what it was. Spectacular
uplighting that made the room perfect, great music all night
long and an great sense of fun from Kevin all made my wedding
reception the huge hit that it was!

Kevin and his assistant, Mike, put on an

Kevin, he was really able to tailor the music
exactly to our taste. He fit in many of our
requests at the perfect time, and even went out
of his way to find special versions of several

went from 2 people to 20 people, then about 200
people within the course of 3 minutes. Great
-Lighting was very cool
-The alternative garter toss, where the roles
are reversed and the lady pushes the garter, was
hilarious, and everyone loved it.
-The anniversary dance, where the dancing
couples gradually get eliminated based on being
married for less time that others, was very
exciting, and some of the older couples that
were outlasting others, were so excited to have
their moment in the spotlight.
-Everything went so smoothly. Once the dancing
started, you couldn’t keep the guests off the
dance floor. It was packed all night. As Kevin
promised, we ended on a high notes, with
energetic dancing until the end. We had to ask
guests to leave.
-Great overall attention to detail, and succinct
keeping to the schedule.
Thanks for helping make our wedding turn out so
perfectly. We couldn’t be happier.

The evening was full of many pleasant surprises, the lighting
during our indoor ceremony being the first of those.
Colors of soft, fluid light, grazed the walls of the intimate
tasting room of the vineyard, which is where our ceremony took
place. We were counting on an outdoor ceremony but moved
indoors due to rain. Of all the visits my fiancÚ and I had
made to the location during the planning of our wedding, I had
never seen it look so majestic! A great deal of this was due to
the artistry and expertise of Kevin and Co. We were actually
quite thankful that things worked out as they did, which leads
to another satisfying point of the evening: The decision to move
the ceremony indoors was rather last minute, yet Kevin adjusted
everything accordingly and comfortably. Guests were saying
of the ambience everything from, “It was awesome!” to “It looked
like heaven in there,”
The after-rain mist creeping in the vineyard outside the huge
windows played a part as well, but it was incredible the way the
weather and the lighting/mood accentuated one another.
Kevin made every effort to inform myself and my husband of the
events that were to take place, things that we spoke
about/planned before such as the first dance, toasting, etc., as
the night went on. And I can only imagine the challenge of
grabbing our attention as well as our guests, amid all of the
excitement of the night! I feel he succeeded in doing
My father even mentioned the next day that he really appreciated
the playlist. I agreed that it was a balanced, energetic,
fun array of songs; our" picks” from the on-line planner were
often woven in as well, much to our appreciation.
Kevin and his assistant were working with a space that was
perhaps not as open as many weddings/events are. Rather
than having a central dance floor with tables all around, the
tasting room had several partially divided sections. This I
presume posed a challenge at times to get the maximum number of
guests involved in the dance floor-oriented events. Then again
with this set-up, guests had the option of mingling,
enjoying their coffee, etc. without an imposing sound system
complicating things. For those of us who wanted to boogie
– the wedding party, my folks, some great aunts and uncles, the
bride and groom- it was fabulous! We had a blast.
All-in-all, we were pleased and even ecstatic at times, over the
course of the evening. We realize the impact that the DJ has on
the smoothness of such an event, after working with Kevin
Colangelo’s DJ services.

Kevin provided exceptional service for our wedding in September of 2009.
He transformed the ball room and turned it into something beyond our
expectations. The first time we walked in we couldn’t believe the lighting and
set up job that Kevin and his crew created. Everybody including my 80yr old
Grandmother was up dancing the whole night. All night we were approached
by our guests who repeatedly asked, “where did you get this DJ-he’s the best!”
He was able to work within the guidelines of our venue, and he made sure that it
would feel like it was our special night.
We highly recommend Kevin
Colangelo and his team, and their fantastic services.

Thanks again Kevin,

When we first met with Kevin we immediately became excited to have
him as our DJ for our wedding. As the event drew closer it was easy
to see that Kevin followed through with what he offers. Never
have I ever seen such professionalism, maturity and class with a DJ
service. Kevin and his assistant handled the evening so
well…from start to finish everything ran smoothly. As I looked
around the night of our reception I noticed that literally EVERYONE
was on the dance floor, even people who swear they do not dance.
If you are looking for your reception or event to be “the best ever”
definitely consider hiring Kevin, he will make it happen and follow
through on his word. The reviews are still coming in for our
reception…from the music selection to Kevin’s organization, the
night was a hit! You definitely get what you pay for with

Kevin Colangelo and his team went above and beyond all of our
expectations. From the very first call, we knew we had found
the perfect DJ for our wedding. We were planning our New York
wedding from Oklahoma and Kevin put our minds at ease by making
amazing recommendations on photographers and other vendors.
Kevin also prepared a masterful and artistic slideshow for our
guests that blew their minds. It truly was memorable!
Kevin was always 100% professional, but still knew how to have fun.
He ensured that we didn't have to take care of anything when it came
to our wedding day. The sound system was phenomenal and his MC
skills are truly something to be admired. Everyone raved about
how wonderful Kevin's services were. Anthony and I will
recommend Kevin and his Team to everyone we can. Please feel
free to contact me as a reference! And Thank you Kevin for making
our Wedding such a special day!

Jeremy and I would just like to say thank you so much for all of
your help and information before and during the wedding! We
appreciated all of your tips, and guidance to try and make our
wedding everything we wanted it to be and more. Everything ran
so smoothly, and was everything and more we expected it to be.
We did not have one minute during the whole night that the dance
floor was not packed and that is exactly what we wanted! Our
surprise entrance we planned went perfectly and shocked everyone!
The up lighting was just beautiful, and really set the mood for the
whole night, and was so classy. (esp. on the sweetheart table)
We did not talk to one person the whole night and since the wedding
who has not commented on how smoothly everything went, and how
amazing the DJ was!
Thanks for helping us with everything beforehand, and making the
night run flawless!
Attached is the picture of the entrance, I edited for you let me
know if you would like any other pictures we have a bunch of
everyone dancing with all of the lighting etc!

Kevin Colangelo was by far the best DJ we have ever seen. He
made a wedding reception so much better then we could have ever
imagined. It was like something out of Vegas and when we
walked in we became the show. It was absolutely incredible!
We met with Kevin twice before our wedding and after the second time
we actually got a little nervous because he really sounded TOO good
to be true. Let us assure anyone, he really is as good as he
describes and he will do everything he says he will! We would
welcome anyone to contact us for a reference for him.
Thank you again Kevin for making our day even more special!

Happy New Year and I hope your holidays were good. Brian and I just wanted to say thank you. You really made our wedding something to talk about!! I couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was all night long. We had chosen you and your company based on your web site and by the way you spoke to me the first time I called you. You had a presence about you that made everything seem ok. You had all the answers to my questions and had really great ideas. The only stressful factor about it was hearing from everyone, "did you hear him in person?" And my answer was always the same, NO. I didn't feel I had to hear you in person after viewing your web site and reading the reviews from everyone. You can't always make people happy but we sure were.
I just have to say that you were more than I thought you could be. You did everything to ease my mind and I knew that We had made the right choice. The way you had everything scheduled and were able to change a few things on the spot made everything go smoothly. The dramatics of the bubbles and the lights really added a flare to the reception. Your accent alone makes it something else too. We really appreciated how you spoke to us and it seemed like we had know you our whole lives. The centerpiece give away was the best! The way you kept the dancing going was also amazing. The whole night just flowed and it was all orchestrated by you.
So, thank you so much and again and we were so happy to have you be such an intricate and important part of out wedding.
