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!

We hired Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disc Jockeys a year in advance of our wedding and never looked back. Kevin attended the various vendor meetings and gave us insight as to what exactly he would provide to the venue. He guided us in areas that we had questions and led us down the right path to providing spectacular ambiance. When it came to wedding day he provided not only music that kept the dance floor packed the entire time by "reading" our group - but he also set the mood with the fantastic up lighting throughout the entire room and dance floor. We also got the package which included the photo booth and our guests LOVED it! We were delighted with everything.

I could not be more satisfied with Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disk Jockeys! Right from the beginning Kevin proved to me they are not just DJ’s, but wedding professionals. I was really impressed with all the great advice he gave me, like how to set up the seating to better entertain our guest, and the right kind of lighting to use in our ballroom. I was even more impressed when I got the opportunity to use their online database to choose and browse songs! When I met with Tony, my DJ, he helped us set up a timeline of events to make the most of our reception time. At a lot of weddings I’ve been too, I find that the bride and groom are too busy to have fun at their reception. This was not the case for us. Tony took charge and kept everything running smoothly and on time. We did not have to worry about a thing! The dance floor was packed all night! I really loved his ability to read the crowd and play what pleased our guests, as well as accommodate our musical tastes and song requests. I would highly recommend Kevin Colangelo Premiere DJ’s for your special event!

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 without you.

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!


#47

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. WE WERE RIGHT! 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 reason! His ability to keep our guests engaged throughout the evening was what made our night magical! WITHOUT RESERVATION, fell free to contact us for any further comment or questions.


#46

Kevin exceeded our expectations for planning, lighting, sound, music and entertainment for our wedding day. He 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 many events where we would barely hear the speaker. Overall, Kevin and his staff did a phenomenal job for us. Everything from the planning to the transitions to the photo booth was exactly what we wanted and kept the day practically worry free! His suggestions and fast response (especially as the event drew near) really helped keep the whole day an event that we and our guests will never forget. I highly recommend his services to anyone for any event!

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!


#44

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 etc. 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 dance floor was NEVER empty! We have had multiple friends and family members compliment the music and state that it was the BEST wedding reception that they had been to in years! We highly recommend Kevin and his company to any of you looking to book a DJ!


#43

The first time I saw Kevin Colangelo at my friends wedding he was spectacular. I knew after that I wanted him for my special day! Most of the time when you attend a wedding you never remember the DJ or band that play, but Kevin always stuck out in my mind to be the best! Me and my fiance met with Kevin and he helped us so much. He gave us all kinds of ideas about the best possible room lay out to timing for my whole wedding, and extra special ideas to make our wedding stand out. I never had to worry about a thing. He even helped me surprise the groom. Kevin Keeps the party flowing so nicely. He keeps all your guest involved so they will remember your wedding for sure. I had my grandfather come up to me after my wedding and tell me it was the BEST wedding he has ever been to in his life. In fact many of my guest said the same and I have Kevin to thank for that. He is very professional and has done tons of weddings. Another thing he has is a photo booth. My guest absolutely loved this! Your guest get one copy and you get one copy and they make a book for you! Everyone signs it and it is just awesome. Such a great idea. I could not be more happy with his services. If there is one thing you need at a wedding it is someone you can trust to keep your day flowing and make sure people are having fun! There is no one out there better than Kevin. Being an entertainer myself I know this to be true! Thank you so much Kevin for everything.

Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disc Jockey was outstanding. Tony, (our DJ) met with us prior to our event and made us feel at ease. His expertise and experience was obvious from the start. He recommended some changes to us for a better event and he did not steer us wrong. To this day, almost 3 months later, we are still receiving compliments on the flow and the transitions from one thing to the next. Tony was very easy to get a hold of if we had questions and was there on time. One thing we really liked about Kevin Colangelo service was they do not advertise during your event like a lot of other DJ\'s do. There are no fancy signs and you do not hear there name being shouted in the mic every half hour letting everyone know who they are. Their actions alone do the advertising. Also, at no point in the evening did we feel the DJ was trying to take center stage. He kept the focus and attention on us. Our music requests were met throughout the night and got everyone involved. Lower music was played at dinner allowing casual conversation and then as the evening progressed, so did the tempo and energy until he wanted to bring it back down for slower songs and slower dancing. During the event, if Tony had a question or suggested he was not intrusive and it was done very professionally. Knowing that a DJ can make or break your event, we are glad we spent a little extra to get a higher quality service that MADE our event successful. Without a question we would not hesitate to use there service again. We thoroughly were impressed with our DJ, Tony, and if all of there DJ are to that caliber, we know you will not be disappointed


#41

My husband and I were more than pleased with the service from our DJ. He was beyond professional, from emails to phone calls, he was attentive and passionate about his work. The day of the wedding reception went as smooth as possible, as he took control of the miniscule details that one would forget. He played exactly everything we wanted, and it seemed to be exactly when we wanted. The transitions from slower songs for our older guests to the lively songs for our friends, it was beyond our expections. We sincerely and strongly suggest working with Kevin Colangelo and his DJ services. Cheers!


#40

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 if necessary. 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.


#39

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 event!


#38

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 lives!


#37

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 so 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!

June 17th 2011 Wedding Reception Mohawk River Country Club 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 like ours. 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 EVERYTHING!


#35

Kevin was professional with all of our meetings and communications. When we became stressed while making arrangements from the other side of the country he was able to reassure us and plan for all contingencies. He was also forthcoming about any extra costs that would occur with any contingencies. The music was great, the event was fantastic, everyone had a great time, and Kevin had a lot to do with it. I feel we got a hell of deal.


#34

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!

Wedding Reception Ithaca Yacht club October 10th 2010 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! Thanks Kevin.


#32

Jennifer and I just want to give you and your staff a great big "THANK YOU" for all you have done for us so far in this process of planning our wedding. It's a great relief when you have something this important going on to know that (at least where our music is concerned) that it's being handled by a company that is as professional and as personable as yours. Having experience in the music business myself, I have to say that, truly, you and your people are more than the best choice for my wedding, and we are grateful to have you handling our wedding reception's tunes. Thanks again, Kevin, and Jen and I hope to talk again with you soon, and perhaps we can meet, and you'll let us take you to lunch!


#31

Outstanding! In a word - FABULOUS! - I would have paid you 3 times your fee with no hesitation. Your DJ was outstanding and need to increase your fee.


#30

Hi Kevin, First off I wanted to tell you how extremely  happy we were for our wedding! It was so great! Many people (including both sets of our parents) commented on how outstanding the DJ and music was. The choreographed music with the slide show and fireworks display was absolutely perfect! I was so pleased with the music you chose for the slideshow, the first song (When you say nothing at all) was so fitting - I loved it ). THANK YOU so much for the terrific work you did for us on our wedding and all the preparation time prior to the actual event! Thank you!


#29

Thanks for everything! We had a blast and heard nothing but good reviews and praises from everyone! We are just about to leave for our honeymoon, but we promise to write a great review for you when we get back. Thanks again!


#28

Kevin 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 (queuing, 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 recommendation.


#27

Living in New York City, we had a huge selection of DJs to choose from. But after finding Kevin on the Web and talking to him, we decided to hire him--all the way from Syracuse. Kevin is a very personable guy, and that charm and charisma really carries over to his job. He made our wedding feel like a grand event without stealing the show. He also played all of the music we requested and even added a few of his own selections that really enhanced our play list. Also, Kevin's sound system is top notch and had our guests dancing all night long. You will not find a more professional, easy to work with DJ around.


#26

One word -- AWESOME! Hire Kevin and his team if you want a party! We had a great experience with Kevin. He is energetic, fun, professional, and he will listen to your requests! Hiring Kevin was the best decision we made! Oh, and did I mention -- he has a wonderful British accent!


#25

Kevin, not just his company, were to the UTMOST in professionalism. I had a VERY complex and difficult wedding to accommodate-- an all-day outdoor event that was bilingual. His charm was appreciated, yet he was able to dictate to me what we needed to do to make the day run smoothly without acting or sounding pushy. I can almost say that I underpaid such a fine performance. Kevin, his assistant, and his company are your guide to a flawless, perfect day. I will remember this day for the rest of my life and not only only walked away with that, but also a friend. Please feel free to contact me at any time regarding his services.


#24

My husband and I wanted to say thank you for the great job you did at our August 11, 2007 wedding. At the beginning of our wedding process, I wanted a DJ who would be able to blend two worlds- my Cambodian side and my husband's Italian side. I had high expectations for a wedding DJ, because I really wanted all of my guests to enjoy themselves and and have a great time by kicking of their shoes and dancing to the beat- I have numerous pictures of just that!  Kevin- you EXCEEDED our expectations! The dance floor was jam packed and you selected songs that appealed to all ages- a big plus for us! Our wedding day was made even more special by all the hard work and though you put into the planning and it showed that night- I received so many compliments on my DJ that I have recommended you to 5 of my girlfriends who are now engaged as well. If you ever need someone to give a recommendation for you, please do not hesitate to have that couple call me at 518-727-7514 or email- Sovonnay@gmail.com. I would be more than happy to. Once again, I apologize for not sending you a big thanks earlier. You made everyone at my wedding feel special and as one elderly couple said "The songs that we danced to tonight, made me feel so young!" Sincerely (and with heartfelt thanks).


#23

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.


#22

Kevin Colangelo's services are outstanding. First, Kevin himself is professional and responsive throughout the planning process and during the reception. His song selection and elegant service kept people on the dance floor all night. And he stayed an extra hour because everyone wanted more. His equipment is sharp. The music is clear and undistorted. His lighting spotlighted several things throughout the evening. The scene he set for our first dance was perfect. The wedding was three weeks ago and we continually receive complements on our DJ. You must consider Kevin the DJ and MC your event. Ohh, he cares very much to do an outstanding job. Our wedding was in the mountains. We had several feet of snow and ice. His son broke the ice and shoveled it from the deck for our grand entrance into the reception site. The reception would not have been as smooth with anyone else.


#21

Let me just say that Kevin Colangelo was the best DJ I have ever seen. I have been to plenty of weddings and other events that had DJ's, and never have I made or heard a comment about how good the DJ was. At my wedding, I had at least 20 people come up to me and ask where I found him, and how amazing he was. While the service cost more than the other DJ services I checked out, it was well worth the money and Kevin was excellent to work with. Kevin was very professional and is extremely knowledgeable about weddings. He had numerous suggestions to make our wedding better and we used many of them. Most DJs show up and play. Kevin helped us get the most out of our wedding. He showed up 5 hours before the reception to set up and has extremely high quality equipment. Kevin was wonderful to work with during the wedding, he played everything that was requested and had a great surprise song for the finale.


#20

I wanted to thank you SO much for everything you did. The wedding was perfect and I have you to thank for that. I am just about to head out to the port to board our cruise ship but as soon as we return I will fill out the survey. I wanted to know if you could email me the processional for the girls, the instrumental of "beautiful day" or if by chance you offer the service of putting most of our wedding music on a CD for keepsake. There would be no hurry but Mike and I were thinking we wanted something like that and if you don't if we can get that song we can try to put it together. Let me know, and thank you again. Your are wonderful!


#19

We would recommend Kevin to anyone who is planning their wedding. He helped in all aspects of our planning process, and his insight and experience was an incredible asset. Our reception was exactly how we had hoped that it would be! The dance floor was packed all night, and hardly anyone remained in their seat. He played the right music at the right time, and was able to accommodate our guests' taste all throughout the night! Everyone commented on how phenomenal the DJ was, and it made it worth every cent! Thank you Kevin and Co. for making our wedding reception everything that we dreamed it would be and more!


#18

Kevin Colangelo was a complete blast to have at my wedding, I had a smaller wedding ~100 people and the age ranges varied impeccably, Kevin Colangelo was able to have everybody up and dancing the entire night! Everyone after the wedding said that they had the best time they had ever had at a wedding reception. The DJ even knew that when one of my husbands friends who caught the garter was a little too much for my 18 year old cousin without saying a word or missing a beat he reversed it so that my cousin put the garter on him for the evening, it went well and I couldn't have been more pleased. I highly recommend Kevin Colangelo premier DJ's I couldn't have wanted anything more on the most important day of my life...


#17

Hello Kevin, We are back from our honeymoon in Kauai - a little tired and more than a little sunburned! But we had a wonderful time! I can't thank you enough for all of your help and for your professionalism. From the moment we first contacted you it was obvious that you had our best interests at heart and that your goal was to help make everything perfect. And you did just that! You kept us on track and informed all the way through the wedding and you did it in such a stress-free way. You helped make the day for us and we could really tell just how very much you cared! Thank you again,


#16

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!


#15

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!

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!

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’s DJ service.

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,

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 fiancé 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 ambiance 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 that. 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 and his assistant, Mike, put on an incredible show at our wedding, and we had tons of guests coming up to us and asking us where we found our DJ/MC. Because we had spent several hours planning the course of the evening with 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 songs that we had requested but that he didn’t previously have on file (including the coolest version of “Sunrise Sunset” ever by Louis Armstrong. As an MC, Kevin was very charming, and captured the attention of our guests while at the same time keeping his presence fairly discreet. Special touches that went incredibly well: -The father/daughter dance started out with just the bride and her father, and then during the last 1/3 of the song, Kevin called out all fathers and daughters to come onto the dance floor. The same for the mother/son dance. This was very popular and meant that the dance floor went from 2 people to 20 people, then about 200 people within the course of 3 minutes. Great transition! -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.

WOW! AMAZING! We had our wedding just a few days ago and people are still asking who the DJ was and where we found him. Everyone LOVED him! The dance floor was PACKED all night long. People sat down only long enough to get a drink and to catch their breath. Kevin Colangelo was my DJ and he was courteous, very professional and FULL of great ideas! When we first called Kevin about being our DJ, I was looking for price - not necessarily quality. 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 did an amazing job DJ-ing our wedding! It 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 the wedding. It was exactly how I envisioned it, but better. Thank you Kevin! I’d recommend you to anyone for their event!

Thank you Kevin for a wonderful job. As caterer's and restaurant owners we have seen many good DJ's and you sir were the best. From your idea's for song selection, planning, and years of expertise made our own wedding go seamless. The light show was also an added bonus that no one should go without (AWESOME)! Everyone at the reception raved about you saying it was the best reception they have ever been to. You will be the only DJ that Seymour's will recommend to our clients and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kevin - you were amazing! My daughter\'s wedding reception was wonderful. Our initial meeting with you made it clear to us that we had chosen the perfect DJ. We knew immediately we were in good hands with you. The reception had a full dance floor from the time we arrived until the last dance. Thank you for your part in making it such an amazing day. You're the BEST!

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 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!

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 work with. 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!

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 back-lighting of the sweetheart table and nearby columns was a wonderful touch. 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.

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. I 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. We 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. What 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 his input. Of 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 Kevin!

Our ceremony and reception was amazing. Kevin chose perfect music for the ceremony and reception. Our guests are still talking about how great the music was and how much fun they had. They said Kevin was funny and started off the night with a boom! My husband and I could not be happier and we are so happy with the professionalism and quality of the DJ service. The photo booth was a huge hit too! It was so nice not to have to worry about what songs to play or what was going to get played and if people were going to dance. People of all ages were dancing all night from start to finish. We highly recommend Kevin Colangelo Premiere Disc Jockeys. If you want a wonderful reception with people dancing all night and worry free, definitely hire this company. You will not regret it!
