I cannot say more positive words about DJ AD and his assistant Eilleen. They two of them made my reception night unforgetable. DJ AD really took to heart that list of songs that we requested and used them beautifully throughout the whole night. Eilleen made it her personal mission to get everyone out on the dance floor and achieved that goal with an amazing time had by all. Again, such a perfect evening and I cannot thank the two of them enough! Definitely made this even more of a night to rememberAaJun 10, 2018Verified
Great DJ - did an awesome job keeping the party going with little direction from us. Would definitely hire again!Dec 19, 2017Verified
DJ AD was wonderful!! Eileen was very responsive and attended to any questions I have. DJ AD came in with Eileen and another host that liven up the party!! They lead dances and encouraged the shy and the oldies to the dance floor. They truly made the event memorable for my mom and everybody who attended. Good value for your money! I will once again hire them if needed. Thank you DJ AD and the gang!!!Jun 2, 2017Verified
