Starry Night Entertainment made our wedding reception a truly fun event. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Many guests remarked that it was the best wedding they had been to in years. Starry Night played something for everyone. They listened to what we wanted and delivered. The two most essential parts of a really good reception are the music and the food. Starry Night went above and beyond our expectations with the music. They played all the songs we want and accommodated all our guest's requests. The planning process was made easy for us with their knowledge, experience and helpful suggestions to create just the atmosphere and tone we wanted for our reception. I would highly recommend Starry Night to anyone planning a wedding or any other event!Tom made our reception easy, fun and stress free! From the planning through the last second of the event Tom was great. The planning was so easy; Tom walked us through the entire process. He made sure we didn’t miss any planning details and after our final meeting we knew that Tom would not miss a beat and he didn’t. Tom had people on the dance floor before dinner and kept them there throughout the night. He played great music and added some fun elements to our night. He was able to work with us on a few special things we wanted to do through the night. He made sure we didn’t miss anything we wanted to do but never rushed us. When there was only an hour left he came up to me and let me know which was so nice because as the Bride I didn’t have a clue how much time had passed. This is just one of many example of Tom's attention to detail and dedication to making your day perfect. Tom’s price is outstanding and his service is even better. I have heard from several guests that our DJ was awesome and I agree.Tom is a wonderful person and does an outstanding job in helping book dates, appointments and music selections. He definitely knows how to make an event fun for everyone who attends. From the point we made our entrance at the reception hall, right up to the final dance of the evening, everyone had an amazing time! He helped us choose the perfect songs for the garter, bouquet and cake. If you have a wedding coming up, Tom is definitely the DJ to choose!A big “thank you” to Tom for going above and beyond to accommodate all of our musical requests! My sister used Tom two years ago for her wedding and he did such an awesome job that when it came time to look for my wedding, I knew I didn’t have to look any further. From our initial meeting to my numerous emails back and forth with Tom (which he responded to in a super fast manner!) to our final meetings, Tom was professional, offered suggestions, explained everything that we had questions on, and gave us examples when we weren’t sure about what songs to pick for special parts of our big day.
Tom also did our ceremony which was outdoors and our cocktail hour which was immediately following indoors. He also did a slideshow before our entrances with custom-cut music in the background and was able to cut my father-daughter dance to not make it as long! We also went with the uplighting which is something that is new on Tom's list of extras and I couldn’t have been more pleased with how it turned out- the color matched my theme perfectly!
Everything went smoothly and without a hitch. The music was soft when it was supposed to be, loud when it was supposed to be, and people were on the dance floor and requesting songs the whole night! Thanks so much again for providing an amazing soundtrack to our wedding experience, Tom! - Stephanie and Rob Zwillich, married 8/23/2013 at Westport Inn (from The Knot) Thank YOU very much! It went GREAT! You were great! You and your music were the hit of the party. Lance said to thank you for your great job managing the progress of the event--the introductions, the dancing, the cake-cutting, mixing up the music and taking requests to get everybody up to dance at some point. (And even keeping it family-friendly!) We're novices at this--couldn't have done it without you. Everybody told us what a great time they had. The venue was lovely, but your music was what put it over the top - put everyone in the right mood. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
The only regret we have --it went by too fast.Scotty and I just wanted to say thank you. Everything was great. The whole night went smoothly thanks to you. Great job on the music, everyone had a good time. I had a lot of compliments. Thanks again, we appreciate it.Hi Tom! Yesterday was wonderful! We heard from so many people what a good job you did and how nice you were! We were saying last night that we want to put a review on yelp or weddingwire. Thanks for being so flexible and so good at reading the crowd. You were very aware of how things were going and what the crowd needed. Everyone loved being able to put in requests and my dad was very impressed with how quickly you played "Watching and Waiting" for him :) Also, my mother would like me to share how much she appreciated that you really seemed to genuinely care about making it a special day for everyone. Thanks again!!
Review from The Knot:
I contacted Tom about my Connecticut wedding reception, which was on a Sunday. It was a very small event, and not his typical large weekend wedding. From the beginning, he was so helpful; he spent time on the phone with both me and my mom and spent lots of time going over the details of the day with us. His experience was imperative to planning a smooth and successful day. Tom seemed to really care about how the day went and that everyone had a good time. Everyone loved him and we got so much positive feedback about the flow of the day, the music and his warm personality. I highly recommend Tom for any event; big or small!! - Allison And Michael Bendixen, married 8/11/2013 Ever hear the saying, things happen for a reason? Well, what lead us to Tom, was a string of crazy events that ended up leading to a perfect wedding that we would not put together if we tried to do it again. Our first wedding was canceled due to our venue washing 20 feet down the road after hurricane sandy went thru it. Everything was booked and organized. After Hurricane Sandy, we did the best we could scrambling to put wedding number 2 together. Not only did we lose the venue but when we booked a new place, everyone including our DJ couldn't accommodate the new date. This is what lead us to Tom. The first time we met him I know instantly he was our man. Not only did he have our date open but he made the whole challenge of putting a wedding together seem a little easier. After our first meeting, Tom left us with a song list and some awesome song choices like the "Vitamin String Quartet" for the ceremony. And the Day of the wedding everything went perfect - to this day everyone I speak to tell us what a wonderful time they had. The music was great, the vibe in the room was great and Tom did what he's said he does best, he kept everyone on that dance floor ALL Night. Even my Aunt was dancing, and she's 87 years old. All and all there's no one I think that could have done a better job… Tom made our wedding a perfect night and a perfect wedding. Thank you TomRight from the get go we had a great feeling about using you as our DJ. You were extremely professional, knowledgeable and catering to our wants and needs from day one. You were extremely helpful every step of the way, and it showed at our wedding. You made the process of planning the music and setting the itinerary easy and entertaining. Throughout the entire night, you were engaging, fun, and kept the dance floor PACKED! You read the crowd perfectly, and there wasn't a single moment where we had an empty dance floor. Over a month later, we still get compliments as to how amazing and fun our special day was! You were the perfect MC & DJ and it wouldn't have been the best night of our lives without you. We just wish our reception was longer because you made it an epic night!
Thank you so much for making our wedding day that much more amazing. To all those searching for a DJ and reading this testimonial, look no further, book Tom and Starry Nite Entertainment right away!Tom where do I begin. You did such and amazing job at our wedding. Everybody loved the music and games. You were able to keep people on the dance floor at all times. You played such a variety of music that everyone enjoyed. When you spoke, you were clear and loud so everyone heard and understood you. You made our night one to remember. You made the whole process easy for Angel and I. You took so much stress and pressure off of us and for that I thank you so much. I recommend you to anybody and everybody. I can not say it enough Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!We were so happy to work with you. Beginning to end you made everything easy. We clicked right away and your breadth of knowledge in music is amazing. You truly had all the answers and were a great planning resource. You engaged and entertained our guests for the whole party! We are so glad to have worked with you and recommend you in the highest.I just wanted to let you know we were very happy with how everything went yesterday, it was all so perfect! Thank you for helping to coordinate everyone too, we are all clueless!Our wedding was the most incredible day ever! Neither of us even noticed the rain that interrupted our outdoor wedding, because of the great teamwork exhibited by our wedding planner, the band, photographer, videographer and yourself! Although you were all strangers before that afternoon, you all worked together like true professionals and helped pull off the best day ever. From little things like you sharing your equipment with our other audio/musical vendors, to big things like your willingness to listening to our tastes, visions, and guests to make sure the wedding entertainment was a true reflection of what we hoped to achieve, you were wonderful to work with, and our guests continue to sing your praises.
Some of our most memorable moments from the wedding stemmed from the music you played. You were able to asses the crowd quickly and accurately, and everything flowed start to finish. There was never a dull moment and I am certain some guests danced from the first song right through the last. From romantic love songs, to fun-to-dance-to hip-hop, and playful sing-alongs, you hit every note. I only hope I can see everyone I love have that much fun at another event someday!!! Thanks so much for your important role on our wedding day, and surpassing our every expectation! Future couples will be happy to discover you!Thank you so much for giving our guests a fantastic time at our wedding. Brian and I had so much fun and were dancing fools for the last hour! It was a blast we loved all of the music during our special day. We are going to book you again for a 5 year anniversary party! We appreciate how easy and engaging you were to work with. I knew when we picked Starry Nite DJ's, that I could cross that off the list knowing it was a home run!Thanks again for an AMAZING night! From the initial phone call scheduling a meeting, to the end of the night at the actual wedding, you were one of the most professional, yet personable, members of our wedding. With all the details, last minute adjustments, and other planning associated with coordinating a wedding I cannot describe how calming and reassuring it was to have you as our music coordinator. I appreciate the fact that you ALWAYS stayed in touch, responded immediately to any questions and concerns, and stayed on top of everything even remotely related to providing the absolute best experience that could be had on our special night. That dedication and professionalism is not common these days, and I just have to say again, "Thank You"! The music was phenomenal, coordinated, and most importantly on cue! Everyone had a blast and is still talking about it. Even the shoe game was a huge hit! I admit I didn't want to play any games at the wedding, but when we did it...WOW! that was fun for everyone! I keep hearing from my friends how I may have fudged about some of my responses! So, thank you--and your assistant for a remarkable evening and best wishes to you!Just a quick note of thanks! You did a great job last night! Thank you so very much for helping us make our party a success! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! All the best!Keven and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful job you did at our wedding in Nov. 2012. You came to us recommended by and a friend, and you turned out to be everything she said you would be and then some. From the very first meeting we had with you, you helped put our minds at ease and we were certain you were the right guy for the job. You really seemed to understand what was important to Keven and I and what our vision was. We were impressed by how organized you were and how easy you made it for us to plan our day exactly the way we wanted it. The wedding ran smoothly from start to finish. You were good about communicating with us through-out the day, as well as with the venue staff and the photographer. You did a great job of getting people who normally will not dance, out onto the dance floor. We will happily recommend you to anyone looking for a fantastic DJ! Thank you so much Tom!Mike and I just wanted to let you know that we were so pleased with how the ceremony and reception went. You gave us so much helpful advice and great ideas that made our day truly unique and personal. All of our family and friends were so impressed by the music choices, flow of the night, and the amazing uplighting that you provided. We were so lucky to be able to work with you and would absolutely recommend you to anyone looking to create a magical event.
Thank you also for working so closely with the venue to ensure that everything went smoothly. We'll miss talking with you, but will forever be grateful!Thank you for helping to make our wedding day unforgettable! The energy you helped create through out the night was amazing & you kept our friends and family dancing all night long!! Music is such a big part of our relationship and you helped show that to all of our guests, they are still talking about how much fun they had! You were professional and fun through the whole planning process all the way up to the last minute of our reception.
We loved the lighting and your sound was great, I can't say enough about how pleased we are! We will recommend your business to anyone who has an upcoming celebration! Thank you!!!It was really great working with Tom. To this day we are so amazed by how much he was involved in so many aspects of the wedding! He came to our home and met with us a few times to really get all the details down for exactly what type of music we wanted and when it should all happen. I even wanted something a little different for my ceremony and he was willing and able to provide it all for me just the way that I wanted.
It was perfect! Also, we did a grand dance entrance with our bridal party to "Party Rock" and I only wanted specific parts of the song, so when Tom came to our house we worked on cutting the music just the way I wanted it and the crowd absolutely loved it!
Tom couldn't have been any better with the attention to detail he gave us for our wedding and even how much he interacted with our guests to please their requests as well. He even came on the dance floor to do a little bit of the "wobble!" Needless to say, one of the best, most fun DJ's we have EVER seen at a Wedding. We are so thankful we found Tom and he was the reason we had a rockin' party at our wedding! Thanks so much, we will never forget that wonderful day! - Monica and Stephen, married 9/8/2012 Tom...thank you so much for everything on Sunday. I knew you would be awesome! The music was great and we had an amazing time!!! I will definitely keep recommending you to people in the future!!Noah & I went to a wedding recently, and OMG.... thumbs down to that DJ! We loved you at ours, and thought you sealed the deal for a perfect day, and seeing this duo in action, it just reminded us what an amazing job you did, and how the DJ truly does pull the wedding together.
So I just had to yet again, say thanks... yes, over a year later. YOU ROCK!
The dancefloor for this one we went to was half empty majority of the night, and they would play songs, and clear the dancefloor and do nothing to recover.... I watched as the two DJs stirred their cocktails, and bobbed to the music behind the booth... never once stepping out from behind there. I mean don't get me wrong, they had a beautiful day, and who am I to be a critic of someone else's vendor choices... but you immediately came to mind so I had to shot you an email! - Alyson T., married 6/2011 Tom, I just have to say that every single person had an amazing time at our wedding. Everyone was very pleased with your work, the song choices and overall, everything. You played a big part in making our wedding memorable. The planning, from the time we met to the day of the wedding was perfect. Thank you so much!!! Now off to our honeymoon :) ... Lauren ...Everything went better then i can imagine. The party continued to a pool party at the hotel until 4 am. Everything was perfect and everybody kept saying how great everything was. Thank you very much Tom my expectations were exceeded ... Dan
