We used Its All About You for our recent wedding for both our DJ and Photobooth services. The DJ services provided were amazing. We not only were able to give Joe a playlist and a "do not play" list, but we're able to give him a list of songs we wanted to play during dinner, etc. Our Emcee kept things moving all night, and guests commented about how the flow of the event was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better music situation. The Photobooth was just as fun! Guests flocked to the large setup, which helps the booth from being hidden (I've been to weddings that I didn't know had a booth). Large parties were accommodated with multiple strips and even large printouts if they asked! People absolutely loved it. If you want someone to go above and beyond for you, look no further.

Chris was amazing to work with. From the moment we met him he put our minds at ease. He was helpful, kind, and answered all the questions we had without fail. The day of the wedding he was absolutely fabulous. He kept everyone dancing, laughing and having a good time. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

I have hired Kevin for two differen parties and have been extremely happy. He makes any party a blast. He has a large variety of music and customized it based on the type of party he is working. One of our events was a 1st birthday party and he had a lot of fun games for the children to play! Everyone has a great time. I would highly recommend Kevin and will definitely be hiring him again when we need a DJ.

Michael and his crew were wonderful entertainers for our 2 daughters' bat mitzvah. They know how to energize a crowd of all ages with their smile and good humor. Michael is extremely reliable and helpful with the planning process and he is a great asset for the parents who have to organize the event. I can not recommend Michael enough. We will be sure to work with him for our son's bar mitzvah!

In regards to the talents of DJ Henry Knowles: I have attended many parties where DJ Henry Knowles have worked at.... he knows how to work the crowd and that's an understatement. He's highly recommended and his reputation preceeds him... I can certainly see why. His parties are always crowded and packed with mobs of people .... sleet, thunderstorms, rain or shine, people come because of DJ Henry Knowles. I once went to the party before Henry arrived, it was The Hudson Terrace, a well-known classy lounge and restuarant ... he was late because of a previous party he was DJ'ing at...(2 parties in one nite - that's how popular and in-demand he is), things did not pick up until he showed up. The whole energy, vibe and atmosphere was different when Henry took over. He can read the crowd and knows how to energize the crowds. People go up to him for requests all the time and he is more than happy to honor their requests. For Henry... it's always about pleasing the crowd. He'll even get the dance floor going if need be with asking the ladies to dance during songs... he's amazing to watch. And when he gets the crowd going... the bar is always packed with people as well getting refreshed in between songs. Henry may be world famous, always in demand traveling the globe on international assignments and having an impressive resume of managing well-known artists/musicians such as Marc Anthony and the New Swing Sextet, and etc ... but you'd never know he is a rockstar within the Latin Music World. Henry Knowles carries himself with finess, charm and impeccable manners. He is always sensitive, gifted and humble to everyone's goals and needs. It's a pleasure to see Henry at a party ... he has a huge fan club and the ladies just adore him. And where the ladies go... men are sure to show up, he is a superstar DJ in all the latin party scenes. Everyone who dances to latin music has heard of his name. The crowds at his parties stay till the very last song and that's after a long hard day of work whether it's Monday, Wednesday or Friday... which tells you the kind of talent, press, connections and energy Henry brings to all his parties. It is not uncommon to see many famous Latin and American stars and artists showing up at his parties... such as Vanessa Williams. It's guaranteed a surefire win/win night with DJ Henry Knowles.

I cannot begin to commend Gene and his staff for their quality and professionalism! From the moment I met Gene and Katherine I felt completely at ease that they would make my wedding perfect. Our wedding took place at the Miller Beach Surf Club on June 29, 2013 and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and perfect event. We had originally booked another venue on another date when my mother decided to change all of that three weeks before the wedding! Gene and his staff were completely accommodating! They made it so easy! All of my last minute requests were honored and they always were so gracious. Gene was even kind enough to personally emcee my wedding! I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am! If you are looking for a DJ Sir Round Sound Entertainment should be your first choice. Not only did they walk me through every minute of the evening in advance but they also kept my crowd moving all night! We had an eclectic group of guests and everyone had a song that they liked! We never wanted to stop dancing! Also the cost was incredible for the service we received! Gene was never pushy about incorporating an extras. He made me feel completely at ease. I honestly cannot recommend them enough! Thank you Sir Round Sound and especially Gene and Katherine for making our wedding a night we will always remember! You were all fantastic!

Wow, we really hit the jackpot with finding and hiring Michael from MJB Entertainment to DJ and emcee our wedding. From day 1 of the initial communication and planning, Michael was extremely responsive to all my phone calls and emails. He made the DJ portion of the wedding planning process a breeze. On the day of the wedding, he and his team arrived early to setup. The setup for the DJ booth and equipment was clean and pleasing to the eye (it was a nice white DJ booth that fit in really well with our decor - you can see it in the picture for this review). I provided Michael with a timeline of events for the ceremony and reception down to the minute (like the processional, first dance, speeches, cake cutting, etc.) and he was on point with announcing and playing our chosen songs for each of those events. He was very engaged throughout the night, and if I needed his attention for something, he was right there ready to assist. He also has the perfect DJ/emcee voice - he is able to get everyone's attention during announcements in a polite, classy, and fun way (some DJs/emcees can be annoying but Michael is so cool and totally the opposite of annoying). And, the best part, he got everyone up and dancing and took requests! I would DEFINITELY recommend Michael and MJB Entertainment for anyone looking for the best DJ/emcee in NYC.

    I recently had my wedding in March and Xtreme sounds did an amazing job. The Emcee Freddy was helped us choose the perfect music and kept the energy up the entire night. He really went above and beyond to keep everybody laughing and dancing. I still get compliments from our family and friends! I would recommend them 100% to anyone who wants a fun wedding. They were everything I wanted and more!!!
