Where do I start with Special Occasion Events INC? I know where to start, Simply Amazing! Rick and his crew provided an experience like no other. All of the guest were blown away with how unique and entertaining the DJ was. It was much more than just music. They were able to fully immerse all of the guest in this celebration. We felt like celebrities and it was out of this world. I can't thank Special Occasion Events INC enough for doing such a fantastic job. They are truly one of a kind.

I recently had the pleasure to work with Rick Mangram and his team, I have to say it was a lot of fun! As a wedding planner I certainly appreciate the professionalism and flexibility of other vendors to make sure the day runs smoothly and couples + guests are well taken care of. Rick was not only an amazing entertainer, but also extremely easy to work with. I certainly look forward to working with Special Occasion Events again very soon!
