We booked B_Entertained for a high profile live event in Hartford, CT. Mike did a fantastic job for us. He was able to adjust to the music type we were looking for, anticipate the wants and needs of the crowd and was able to keep the energy of the room up to keep the party going. B_Entertained was very professional, reasonably priced and flexible to our specific needs. I would recommend B-Entertained to any one looking to have a hassle-free and professional DJ. I hire entertainment all over the country and I would hire them again anytime.

Dennis was such a pleasure to work with! He made sure that he met with us and got to know us before coming up with our wedding play list. After our meeting, and confirming various songs/categories, he called to confirm a finalized list a week before the wedding. He is very organized and flexible! For the ceremony, Dennis set up a small station outside to play music for our guests as they arrived and then for our ceremony. Everything was perfect, and the sound was beautiful! The reception went off without any trouble having Dennis as our DJ. His professionalism and ability to be flexible during some introduction trouble made things super smooth and go by seamless! Everyone sang along to the selection of music throughout the night and when it was time to party, he came out on the floor and got everyone up on their feet—singing and dancing!! Our families raved over how much fun they had, and I know it had a lot to do with having Dennis as our DJ! Thank you so much Dennis!!!!

Prompt, responsive, and affordable. Adults and children both enjoyed the face painting and she did a nice job. She did not come "dressed" as a clown however and I had some guests asks me if she needed to get changed upon her arrival. We were expecting and somewhat hoping that she was in clown attire (painted face, nose, wig, really anything) . Other than wearing a balloon hat she didn't look the part of a clown and couldn't be distinguished from the rest of the crowd.

We were looking for some good entertainment for my daughter’s 1st birthday party. We were a bit skeptical in the beginning. But when we met Jeff n he showed us a couple tricks we decided to go ahead with him. There were around 15 kids and 45 adults at the party. Jeff came well ahead of time. Though the guests arrived late and we had to change the time of his performance, Jeff was patient and waited for everyone to arrive before starting the show. He was very polite and accommodating. We hired him for an hour performance and it was a mix of walk around as well as stand up show. Kids absolutely loved his tricks and adults were amused as well. He runs an absolutely gripping and entertaining show. Over all it was a wonderful experience and the party was a hit. Thanks to Jeff.

Kathy was great. The bbq train was fun. Who ever the man was with her was pretty rude to me when I had asked if the salad buffet could be refilled. I wouldn't suggest buffet style for 130 people, but I didn't know. Live and learn. I would recommend Kathy though. I was happy overall with her services. She did the appetizers for us too. Fantastic!

Nicky D was perfect for my Dad's 70th birthday party. He quickly adjusted to the mood of the crowd and everyone loved him. He was very accommodating with requests and incredibly easy to work with. I can't recommend him enough, especially with an older group of people. Many thanks to him for classic entertainment, and a great alternative to a DJ or band. At a great price to boot!
