Sweet 16 Party in Flanders, NJ on 12/07/2013
"For my daughter's Sweet 16, Derek provided the perfect mix of party and dance music, incorporating previously agreed playlists while also managing on-the-spot requests with ease. He had a great rapport with the guests (about 60-70 teens) had them up on their feet, singing and dancing for most of the night (a great accomplishment with this crowd). Our venue was small, but he had experience playing there before so was able to adjust the sound to the perfect volume to keep both kids and old fogeys happy. He also brought just the right mix of lights to add sparkle to the atmosphere without being too much or too distracting. Definitely will hire again - Thanks Derek!"
- Jennifer S.
Anniversary Party in East Hanover, NJ on 11/30/2013
"My guests said this was the best party they ever, and they really loved the music. We played old songs from the 50's. I provided Derek with requests in advance, and he played every single one of them. I know he had to download a good number of them just for this and I do thank him. He did a 5 hour party and it all went very well. He takes his work very seriously. I don't think I ever saw him smile. Everyone danced (! ) and had a blast. Something to be said for good old rock and roll. Thank you Derek."

Birthday Party (Adults) in Middletown, NY on 08/10/2013
"Derek was terrific and the music went smoothly from afternoon (chamber music) to dinner (50s & 60's ballads) to dancing (classics like chacha and rhumba through modern favorites). He was timely, professional, and I didn't need to check in with him unless I needed something. He happily accommodated every request we had, and was very flexible. Working with Derek was a pleasure."

Our wedding was outside & the ceremony was in a different area from the reception but he had the appropriate set up to make sure everything was done perfectly. Thank you Derek. "

Sweet 16 Party in Newton, NJ on 03/02/2012
"Derek was very accomodating and my daughter loved all the music he had with him! Great selection. . .She wished he had more lighting and the sound was good but did not go loud enough...The room we had party in was quite large and has high ceiling, so that might have had something to do with it. The kids asked him to turn up some of the songs, but he was already at max volume. It was fine for us older folks, but you know how the kids like it? Overall, we were very happy with him, the party was a success and they danced all night long! Thank You Derek and Thank You Gigmasters. We will spread the word! Vicki and Deanna Romano"
- Vicki R.
Graduation Party in Rockaway, NJ on 06/17/2011
"Prior to the party, Derek responded promptly to all emails and accepted our song list in advance so he could be sure he had everything we wanted. He set up in plenty of time so he was ready to go when the guests arrived. He opened the dance floor right away, invited people to dance without being aggressive about it. He introduced songs from time to time, and even made a weird announcement about the cake for me! (A silly way to let people know it was time for cake.) He was willing to have us make speeches, but everyone was having such a good time with the music and dancing that we all forgot about speeches.
I would definitely hire him again."
- Marilyn C.

Christmas Party in Blairstown, NJ on 12/18/2010
"Derek was very professional and we loved that he dealt with us personally. He kept everyone at our company holiday party on the dance floor and moving! We hired him at the last minute when our previous DJ cancelled on us and he put everything together very quickly - the event was a huge success! Can't thank you enough Derek!"
- Courtney R.
Sweet 16 Party in Netcong, NJ on 12/04/2010
"We couldn't have been more pleased with Derek's performance at our daughter's Sweet Sixteen Party! Derek arrived early and was well prepared. He played all of the songs our daughter requested in advance as well as those of her guests during the evening.
It is a difficult task to get 16 year old boys up on the dance floor but, in no time at all, Derek managed to do so and the feedback my daughter has received from her friends over the past few days has been wonderful.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Derek Evan to my friends for their future events. He was professional, charismatic and very, very entertaining! "
- Kathy C.
Reunion in Boonton, NJ on 11/06/2010
"Derek Evan was an asset to our 40th high school reunion celebration. We had an agenda, and he graciously and patiently accepted our requests for usage of the microphone, song requests, and announcements that we asked him to make. He even held the microphone for one of classmates while she sang a rather lengthy song. He is a true professional, and I would definately recommend him to friends, as well as retain his services for future events that we may have. Thank you, Derek for helping make our reunion a huge success! - Susan Sangenario"
- Susan S.
Wedding Reception in Vernon, NJ on 07/15/2010

- Nicole L.
Wedding Reception in East Stroudsburg, PA on 09/29/2012
"We were really pleased with everthing. The only thing we were alittle dissapointed about what that our first dance song was a little jumbled. The song wasn't started from the begining and everyone was invited to the floor too soon but other than that everything was perfect. Everyone had a wonderful time and honestly I was a drunk bride at the end of the night belting out songs with everyone else. Haha."
