John did an awesome job at my wedding!!! I knew as soon as I saw his available song list on gig masters that he would be the perfect dj. One of my friends was about to request a song from John... and sure enough he starts playing that exact song. He has such an immense knowledge of music and it shows in his dj skills. I highly recommend John to anyone who needs a dj for any kind of event and any type of music. He made my wedding day absolutely perfect, I didn't stop dancing for a single second. Thank you John!!!

John and his team were extremely professional and very quick on their feet. We threw a few curve balls at them throughout the night but they were ready to respond however we needed them to. We also got the photo booth package and everyone had a great time using the props and sneaking behind the curtain for a photo session. We would definitely use these guys again!

John Alden was fantastic. He worked with us to make our wedding entertainment exactly as we described, classy, jazzy, and fun. We received so many compliments from our guests and from the venue management. Thank you for making such a magical event.
