Below are just a few recent examples of the hundreds of testimonials we accumulated over the years.   Our success is based on our superior communication skills with our clients to make their dreams a reality.  Feel free to contact us for more examples.

Michael you made our wedding a tremendously fun event. It was smooth sailing because of you. 

 

You did a phenomenal job. With short notice, just a week before the wedding, we decided we wanted someone to sing Time to Say Goodbye by Andrea Bocelli for our processional, and our string duo to play Little Martha by The Allman Brothers for the recessional. Both complicated and obscure requests but at Mike’s behest they practiced in short order and did a fantastic job

 

We gave Mike a hodgepodge of music preferences since we have such different taste. My husband likes folk / classic rock / singer-songwrtier music and I like rock and pop. Rather than micromanage we gave him our requests, as well as age ranges of our guests, and he crafted what turned out to be an excellent set list on short notice. He incorporated all the music we love while taking our parents and their friends into account.

 

All of the reception components (blessings, speeches, cake cutting) were well timed and the night flowed seamlessly. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music and the dance floor was full until the last song. Thank you so much for making our wedding the best day of our lives. We highly recommend Michael and East End Entertainment.

Hi Michael,

 

Thank you so much for the amazing job that you did DJ’ing on our wedding day! Ryan and I have received countless compliments from our guests specifically about you, and how awesome the night was thanks to you! I’m sure you could tell by the amount of people on the dance floor, and everyone had a great time at the wedding! You did an AMAZING job mixing together all of the different genres of music that we requested because of our “song request RSVPs”, as well as mixing your style along with Ziggy’s. All of our guests were up dancing at one point in the night or another, and we are so grateful to you for making our wedding such a success! You kept the energy up all night long, and well past the reception’s finishing time. Thank you again so much for all of your hard work, and we would be thrilled to recommend you to anyone in the future!

 

Best,

Thank you!!!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Michael from day one. Michael took the time to get to know my fiancé and I, our tastes and our preferences. He asked questions to clarify to make sure our day would be exactly as we intended. Michael paid great attention to detail and provided us with detailed outlines of our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He went as far as to send me song tracks anytime he thought I may like one. He was flexible and always available. Michael even added on to our package at no additional cost-to ensure it was perfect! If you want a DJ who will go above and beyond, and make your big day exactly the way you envisioned, Michael is the right choice!

Thank you so much for such an enjoyable evening, it was such a blast!

We couldn't be happier with our choice in East End Entertainment for our wedding. Michael was truly incredible at reading the party and with keeping the great music coming. He was a delight to work with and helped guide us in creating music selections for a memorable wedding. He literally had every person at the party on the dance floor- we'll never forget it!

Jonny Ray provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner and he was an amazing musician. We received so many compliments on his guitar playing and music selection, which appeased our guests of all ages.

We truly couldn't be happier with the music at our wedding. Both Michael and Jonny Ray were so professional, organized, informative and helpful throughout the whole process. They helped craft and unforgettable night for us and we are forever thankful!

Thank you so much for your welcome home email. I am finally catching up from the wedding and honeymoon! I don't think I can thank you enough for you to realize how incredibly grateful we are that you were the entertainment for our wedding. We are getting some of the nicest compliments about you guys, and we are so happy with everything. I know things were confusing there for a rainy second, with cocktail hour outside, then inside, then back out, but I am so pleased to hear how you guys were there to just roll with it. The fact you were out there during the ceremony, in the drizzle/downpour/sunshine/rainbow to take zap photos for us was outstanding. The night flowed perfectly, from the guests looking for their tables, to the entrance and for the next 3 hours. People have told us they didn't even have dessert because they couldn't get off the dance floor, and that is a perfect party to me. Our guests that heard the songs they requested ahead of time were so happy, and I noticed a few actually running to the dance floor as they came on. 
Eric was outstanding. I love how he was totally cool with some of the guys jumping up there to drum at times. Almost all of our guests had never been to a wedding with live percussion along with the music, and it's something that is standing out to them. We have already been asked if you would travel to Chicago for a bar mitzvah! Ha! 
When you guys came over at the end of the night to say goodnight, it was so nice. 
You have it down to a science and make it look effortless. We really can't thank you enough, and I will be posting reviews on wedding websites as well.  With the team of East End Entertainment, I feel like the luckiest bride in NY.

Much Thanks,
Much Respect,

DJ Mike you killed it! Our guests couldn't stop saying how great the music was and what a fun dance party/wedding we had. You were so easy to work with. Totally organized and made the wedding music process seamless. And my biggest concern - the ceremony music with jonny ray was all perfectly timed. And you killed it announcing our first dance and all toasts. DJ Mike sari and I will always remember our wedding and how magical it was. And you were part of making it so beautiful and so much fun. And so easy on us as far as not worrying about anything. You're a total pro! XO

The process of working with Michael and East End Entertainment was thoroughly enjoyable. We received all the information we needed well in advance of the wedding which allowed us to concentrate on the last minute details. Michael promised to keep the dance floor packed and he more than delivered! The music selection was excellent and the up-lighting he recommended looked elegant at our venue! As MC for all the nights festivities he did an excellent job coordinating with the guests and caterer making the night flow smoothly. Our guests raved about our wedding and it was due in a large part to Michael and East End Entertainment. We would highly recommend them to anyone in the NY area and we would absolutely use them again!

We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for a better night. You truly helped make our wedding unforgettable!!

Thank you so much!

Dear Mike,

 

Mark joins me in thanking you for helping to make our wedding so special.  Your care and attention to the music was outstanding and created the perfect atmosphere for our celebration.  I am especially grateful for your patience.  Our hectic lives kept us from focussing on the music until the very last minute, but you were very understanding and offered only support and guidance. Please know how much we appreciate it.

We were 1000% happy with Mike and East End entertainment for our wedding. He played all the music I wanted but used his professional expertise to feel the crowd and adjust the music as necessary. He wasn't too talkative or annoying on the mic for the announcements and whatnot but was the perfect t amount to get people amped up for our various events in the night (we had 2 choreographed dances which he did a great job in mixing the custom songs for us beforehand). He was so easy to work with in planning and preparations and in addition is just a really great human being. He took the time to meet with us on several occasions to make sure everything was 100% percent perfect and really went above and beyond to make our wedding a truly memorable event. EVERYONE loved the music and we recommend him wholeheartedly for a wedding or any other event really. Also the photo booth was great, people SERIOUSLY LOVED IT and couldn't stop talking about it.

Hello Michael,

  Julia and Dan can't stop talking about how great your music was. Your selection of tunes and timing made their wedding so special and, your drummer and singer were amazing!!!!   If potential clients requests feedback, please put us at the top of your list.

  Again, the evening was perfect. Guests have called, emailed, and text us with such positive comments. We have to give you so much credit to our perfect evening. NO ONE was sitting down when the music played!

We are grateful and very happy Michael.

 

Sincerely,

Hi Michael,

I wanted to send you a big thank you for our music last Saturday!  I have to admit,  it was amazing!  David was fantastic - he completely captured the vibe of what we were looking for.  We especially appreciated the dinner music. And the selections as well as the lighting for the dancing got everyone on their feet - including my Dad who can barely walk!

Thanks again for helping to make it a very memorable event. Please also give our thanks again to David.

East End Strings,

My husband and I recently got married and we hired a string quartet for these services. We highly recommend East End Strings! They were amazing! We had them play traditional music during our processional and then pop and rock music during our recessional and cocktail hour. We received many compliments on them. We Loved Them!

Mike DJ'd our wedding and words can't express how phenomenal he was from start to finish, to even before our wedding.  We are still getting raves about the music from our wedding, and everything was beyond perfect. He played all our must haves, amazing songs we didn't think of, and songs that kept everyone dancing all night. I loved every song!   We received endless compliments all night, he gave us appropriate cues, made us feel so comfortable and at ease, and made everything absolutely perfect.

 

Mike even caught my error with mixing up the processional songs (I'm editor, how embarrassing is that?!), and Mike's attention to detail made our day go off without a hitch.  He met with us several times before the wedding, and had us create a list really helped us picture how we wanted the music to go. Lighting was something we didn't know anything about, and when we first saw the room done up I couldn't imagine it without uplights--it looked beautiful! The flow of the evening was great.   I couldn't imagine our day without him! We couldn't recommend him enough to anyone.

 

Thanks again for everything you did for us!
