Tom came to us through a recommendation from the owner of our venue. We first contacted Tom about a year before our date via email. He was open to supplying music while guest entered, for the ceremony itself, cocktail hour and the reception. About a month before the wedding, Tom had us fill out a questionnaire covering music types, toasts, specific songs, dances, and times for different events. A week out, Tom contacted us by phone to confirm the details of our wedding day. He was able to find the obscure versions of songs that we requested. Tom arrived early and had his equipment setup before guests arrived. Tom played a nice selection of music at the perfect volume while our family and friends found their seats. During the ceremony Tom was spot on when each song began and when they needed to fade out. Once the reception started Tom’s talents as a DJ shined. The music was great and tailored to our crowd. He strictly enforced our no rap or country, which was awesome. Tom surprised everybody when he started to play multiple instruments live! Completely unknown to us Tom invited his lovely girlfriend Stacy to sing. She too is very talented and has a beautiful voice. These artists wowed the room! I give top marks to Tom and highly recommend him for your event. Thank you for wonderful night!Oct 15, 2018
My partner Marie and I hired Tom and Stacy to DJ our wedding on September 3, 2017. We highly recommend this team to you. From the moment we talked to Tom about song selections and timelines we knew he was easy to work with, professional and extremely talented. Not only was he able accommodate setting up in multiple places, he was very flexible to last minute changes due to schedule slips (on our part!) and he kept the music flowing. Our guests are still talking about how they were blown away from the live music and the talents of these two. Tom and Stacy made our wedding day as fun as it was special and we will be forever grateful. If you are looking for a DJ look no further this is the one.Oct 11, 2017Verified

Tom and Stacey did a phenomenal job as our wedding dj. Tom included live music during dinner and the cocktail hour which was a huge hit with our guests- people still tell me how much they enjoyed that. He was a great Mc as well! Highly recommend Tom Tolnay entertainment!Dec 20, 2016Verified
Tom was amazing! He not only played all the songs we wanted, but he also played instruments and sang, along with his lovely girlfriend Stacy. I didn't know she was coming and it was a very pleasant surprise. He kept the dance floor packed until the very end. My guests kept complimenting my choice in DJs. I do not have a single complaint!Oct 4, 2016Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?In addition to electronic communication, I think it's nice if we can talk on the phone a few times prior to your wedding. I definitely feel more connected with my couples that way. When someone first expresses interest in hiring me for their wedding, I will invite them to call me and I will answer any questions they might have. By chatting on the phone, we can get a better sense of each other's personality. Plus, I can explain all of the relevant information such as booking, song requests, timeline/itinerary etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 2 degrees in music: Bachelors in Music-Education from the Crane School of Music, State University of New York. Masters in Music-Performance from Temple University. In addition to my 14+ years as a professional Disc Jockey, I also have 20+ years of experience performing live music as a Classical Flutist, Jazz Saxophonist and Pop Vocalist. I think this is one of the things that sets me apart from other wedding disc jockeys... I am able to offer live music for your ceremony, cocktail hour and during dinner. I believe the live music adds a sophisticated element of class to any affair.
