Kudos and Accolades
"John did an outstanding job! We were very pleased with his music selection and also incorporating our requests.'
..... Angelia Wightman, Bride
"Hi John ~ I’m finally getting around to touching base with our wedding vendors to follow-up....the last of our company just left on Saturday. It’s been a fun, but very busy 2 weeks. I just wanted to thank you once again for the job you did as DJ for Ali and Jared’s wedding reception... The music selections for both the dinner and the dance were excellent and people not only commented on the lovely dinner music, but also had a great time on the dance floor. Hearing the “You’ve Got Mail Suite” during dinner was a special treat for me and our “Bollywood” song request was a big hit as well, especially with our granddaughter. I hope you had a good time as well....we sure did! If we ever need a DJ again or if someone I know is looking for one I would certainly think of you."
..... Renita Sloan, Wedding reception

"On March 19th your D.J. John Antonisse played at our wedding. I was writing to let you know what an amazing job he did. He was on time, dressed appropriately, completely professional, and extremely helpful and patient. I was incredibly impressed by his ability to keep the flow of the reception going, his ability to play the right music for the right mood, and to be so incredibly thorough in his understanding of how the wedding was supposed to go. John was recommended to us through a friend of my husband's, and she was right, John was really good. I thought that writing an e-mail would let you guys know how pleased I was with the service and with John. I can't say enough about him and would definitely recommend you, and him, to my friends. Thank you for making my wedding one to remember. I would greatly appreciate it, if you would let him know how nicely our wedding turned out. Sincerely."
