DJ Brandon provided us exactly what we wanted. We gave him a list of music to get a feel for what we wanted and it was right on the money. Planning a wedding from the opposite coast provided challenges but the DJ situation was one that was easy to plan and provided a perfect night.

Great experience with event entertainment! Steve was an awesome DJ and working with Dave to set everything up was great as well. I would recommend them :)

Great music selection, made for a fun reception! The video of the day was such a wonderful bonus, we've already watched it numerous times and sent to guests who've enjoyed it as well!

We had a Sunday wedding. I was scared people were not going to get out and dance and have a good time like I wanted them to. This was NOT the case. Dave had everyone on the dance floor the WHOLE night! People did not finish dinner or eat cake because they were having too good of a time dancing all night to stop!

Not only was Dave's music great but he was also super helpful. I struggled to pick a few of my important songs and he sat with me at Panera and went through folders of music helping me find the perfect song. So many people came up and told me how sweet my granddaughter/ grandfather song was. And I owe that to Dave!

One more thing I love this company for is they took a video of my wedding day. From the prep to the ceremony to the dancing. It is a video my husband and I will cherish all our lives. It is so special and shows how much fun everyone is having (thanks to Dave.)

I have already handed out 2 of his business cards to people at my wedding that loved him so much they want to use him for their weddings. They loved how he kept everyone dancing, and played music everyone could dance to no matter their age.

Dave also keeps in mind that you are spending a ton on a wedding and is very reasonably priced!

I OBVIOUSLY give my HIGHEST recommendation to Dave if you are looking for a fun wedding!!

DJ Dave is amazing! Before our wedding, we met twice to discuss music selections and order of events. He has pretty much every song you could want, and if he doesn't, he will find it for you. All I wanted to do at the reception was dance, and the music was perfect! Everyone was up dancing the whole time after dinner! What a fun night! DJ Dave also made us a video of our wedding that has special clips of our day!

DJ Dave Holmes was easy to work with and exceeded our expectations of a DJ. He was very accommodating of our special requests. He played appropriate music for the dinner and dancing. The music was not too loud so it was still easy to have conversations during dinner. He was dressed appropriately for the event.

We would definitely use him again and recommend his services to others.

I could not say enough about everyone who made our day even more special. The DJ [Brandan] was amazing always checking on us and the music kept everyone dancing. (Carroll) the Photograph took the best pictures and everyone at the wedding thought he was great. He really took the time to talk to everyone and get a picture of every moment. The best!! The photo booth made the day. We still have guest telling us how much fun it was. The props where great and the girls running it amazing. You can't beat Event Entertainment!!!

We booked Event Entertainment and had the owner, Dave Holmes, as our DJ. We were very impressed with Dave! He met with us the week before to make sure we had everything set. He also handled our ceremony music, which was perfect. My husband wrote and recorded a song for my processional, and Dave was able to use that track for the wedding. We left the decision making on a lot of the reception music up to his judgement and he did not disappoint. Everyone was up dancing as soon as dinner was over and there was never that awkward moment where everyone leaves the dance floor. I would highly recommend Event Entertainment! I thought the price was reasonable as well!

Dave was great to work with as we got close to our event. He met with us over the phone to go over every song selection and to make sure it was what we wanted. He did a great job of keeping the party going once it got time to dance. He continued to work with us the day of as we made some last minute changes, so he is very flexible. He even provided us with a highlights video of some parts of our wedding, which was a great surprise. Highly recommend!

I just wanted to let you know that Mike did a wonderful job for our 50th Anniversary Celebration and as a surprise to us, my son and his fiancé were married at the same time. The music was great, just what I had asked for and I was pleased that it was just at the right level. He even made sure that our first dance went as planned and that the newlyweds had their first dance as well. Mike was very gracious and professional. Everyone had a wonderful time and we would certainly recommend your company to anyone who needs music for an event. Thank you again for making our celebration a very memorable one.

This was the only vendor from our wedding that we are 100% satisfied with. They were helpful throughout the planning process, and Dave did a wonderful job on the day of making appropriate selections for our crowd.
We had a mix of latin, oldies, and pop- an eclectic mix, but he played it seamlessly and everyone had an amazing time! People were on the dance floor the whole night whether or not we were with them.
Thank you so much Dave and Event Entertainment!

Sarah Jensen - Bride - Town & Country Banquet Hall - Lansdowne MD - April 28th, 2012


Randy has entertained at two recent events for my family (both being weddings) and he is very good at getting everyone up on the dance floor and using props to encourage participation. He interacts with the crowd and is attentive to the type of crowds he is dealing with. I would highly recommend Randy Ward for ANY event. He has also entertained for my company at our company picnics and he interacts very well with children (of all ages).

I can't say enough amazing things about Dave Holmes! We chose Dave as his reviews were terrific and I wanted an amazing dance party for our wedding. When we met him we told him he was the most important part as he was the MC, provided the flow of the evening and had to keep an eye on keeping the party going. He did not disappoint! We had the best time and so did all our guests who ranged from 3 years old to grand parents! Every one told us how great the music was and how awesome Dave was which we already knew! He was above and beyond what we could have hoped for on our wedding day!

Marla Spitzer - Bride - The Villa  - Calverton Maryland - April 9th 2016


My wedding was a little different...I had a mixed traditional wedding, American and Hindu. DJ Johnny did really well with the music selection for the two ceremonies and did a great job of mixing the Indian and the American music. He kept the guests dancing all night.....I got compliments on him from the guests on the day of and after. So, thank you very made it a great success and very enjoyable wedding for the guests.
Dave was great as well with returning my calls promptly, answering and helping me with my concerns, and pairing me with DJ Johnny. He was the best. You guys do great work....sincerely many thanks :)

I have owed you this thank you for almost 8 weeks now my apologies for the long delay.  Nonetheless, thank you, thank you, thank you for your services on our wedding day, May 12th.  I had a blast, my husband had a blast, all the guests raved you did a great job blending the old and the new.  I have to laugh: despite my discussing with you that I preferred not to do any of the electric slide-macarena-cha-cha-type stuff, there I was, leading the Conga line. I cant wait to see the pictures. Also, many thanks for the Italian CD you presented us with as we were leaving the reception.  We listened, laughed at some of the selections (German Italiane???), but overall, LOVED it.  Its become our favorite CD and it is played still over and over again.  Thank you so much. I believe I was sent a survey or request for follow-up shortly after the wedding, but I cannot find it.  I would be happy to provide a more formal response and reference re: your excellent services.  Paul and I are happy to be references for you at any time.
Best regards,

We used Brandon from Event Entertainment for our October 1st wedding and we couldn't be happier! From start to finish he did a great job. We met with him twice prior to the wedding and he was always available to answer questions leading up to the day. He cared about the type of music we wanted and how we wanted the day to flow. Overall, we loved the mix of music he chose. There was something for everyone. Also, we appreciated that Event Entertainment was pretty affordable for the Baltimore area but they didn't sacrifice quality. We highly recommend Brandon and the Event Team!

Event Entertainment played a big part in the absolutely perfect day for my daughters wedding, from start to finish. The DJ Brandon was excellent. Very professional, while being very personalable and also making it such a priority attending to the bride and grooms needs. Highly recommend getting the uplighting and photo booth. Which was such a huge success and so much fun for our guests. With Brandon, definitely feeling as if we were family.

DJ Dave is so down to earth and wonderful to work with! he did great taking requests at the end of the night and even entertained my 6 yr old at the DJ booth (most will not even let you near the booth, let alone a 6 yr old - even gave him headphones!!) He kept the crowd motivated and we danced the night away! His response time throughout the planning process was very quick and his event planning website is a LIFESAVER!!! Highly recommend Event Entertainment!

My wife and I had an awesome wedding thanks to Dave Holmes and his staff. The DJ did a very good job playing music from a list of songs that we supplied. We had a tough list of music because we had guest from all over the world but, the DJ from Dave Holmes staff did a very good job accommodating our music selections. Everyone was very professional and punctual. Dave Holmes staff made the whole process of selecting a DJ and mood lighting for our event very easy and affordable. I would definitely recommend Dave Holmes to anyone that is having a event because they provide excellent service.

Dave met with our daughter to understand her likes and dislikes, what she wanted to include in the reception itinerary and made available all of our music choices at the appropriate times from cocktail hour to dinner to the dance party! Everyone loved the music! Thanks Dave

Dave Holmes from Event Entertainment was the DJ at my sister's wedding 2 years ago and I knew I wanted him to by the DJ at mine. He is so friendly,

 nice, and responsive. He answered all my questions right away and the user friendly website made it SO easy to coordinate the entire evening. He is very knowledgeable about how things should flow that I didn't have to worry about anything. Not only was Dave amazing and helped the night go smoothly but he also was able to videotape some of the night so now we can look back whenever we want!

Many thanks to Johnny for handling our wedding.  The music and everything went smoothly--and Johnny blended into the event very well.  We don't recall anyone having anything bad to say about the music or Johnny--especially with the mixed crowd at the wedding.  More importantly, we were impressed by the way he made the evening go so smoothly.  Thanks, and we would recommend Johnny without hesitation.

It was absolutely great working with Dave and we are so thankful for the fantastic job he did as our wedding DJ. He was very responsive leading up to the event and took the time to meet with us a few days beforehand to go over the final details. He brought a great energy and was able to keep us on schedule throughout the night to help everything run smoothly. Our guests were on the dance floor all night! We would definitely be recommend Event Entertainment to anyone looking for a professional, experienced, and fun DJ for their event.

We were impressed by Dave, which is something you may not realize is important in a DJ. The music was excellent, a nice mix of classic and newer music that was a hit with every generation and group at our wedding, but he also went above and beyond to tailor our ceremony music and other selections to our preferences including using specific versions and sections of larger works. He also managed the whole affair, expertly pacing out the reception events, keeping the whole event moving along at a nice clip so the reception felt fresh right up until the end. He also kept the microphone away from my nutty aunt, always a smart move.

We used Event Entertainment for our wedding this past weekend with Dj Dave Holmes as our DJ. He was absolutely amazing and very experienced. He was so easy to get in contact with during the planning stages, was very flexible and where to meet to set-up the details, and on the day-of he didn't have to ask me any questions. He made sure I filled out the convenient wedding planning website they have, and he made sure that all of our wishes and requests were met. He was the perfect balance of professional, fun, and not-at-all cheesy. As a bonus, his wife attended and video-taped my wedding and created a 15-minute, good-quality highlight video. I highly recommend using Dave Holmes as a DJ for your event!

Dave was an amazing DJ and emcee at our wedding! He was very flexible during the reception as we got a little off our planned schedule. Our guests commented many times on the quality of the music mix that Dave played, and that was a result of Dave taking the time to meet with us to get a feel for our musical tastes. We suggested a few songs and styles and he took it from there. We also had a few songs for the reception that were not in his library, but he got them and put them into the soundtrack of our day. Highly recommend this DJ!

Our DJ was Brandon, and he was just a joy to work with throughout the whole process. He was very laid back and really patient as we made some song selections a little down to the wire. We didn't follow a totally traditional format for our reception, and he was very accommodating. He also quickly changed gears when we had to move inside for our ceremony due to rain. I highly recommend him!

Emma Connor - Bride - Baltimore Museum of Industry - Baltimore Maryland - July 16th, 2016


Dave Holmes was the DJ for our wedding and he was AMAZING through every step of the process. He was very responsive to e-mails and everything was so easy from day 1. The online planning forms were thorough and easy to use. We met with Dave a little over a week before the wedding to go over all our selections and introductions and as soon as he told us that all of our musical choices were songs he usually played, we were even more confident that our reception would be great. And it was! The dance floor was packed all night and everyone I spoke with raved about the job Dave did. He even played a couple school songs from our alma mater for a special moment for all the alumni present at the wedding. He created a short video of highlights from our reception which I love because we didn't have a videographer. I can't recommend Dave and Event Entertainment enough!

We met Dave Holmes from Event Entertainment at a bridal show held at our wedding venue. From the start, we could tell Dave was very experienced with weddings and party events. Dave was very reassuring during our planning meetings and made us feel like he would keep everything under control during our special day; and he delivered. Everything was set up professionally and there were plenty of speakers placed throughout the reception. Sound levels were great and everyone could hear the music without it blasting over everyone’s conversation. We gave Dave a music playlist of songs we wanted to hear and he did a great job or playing our favorites while also incorporating some of the latest hit wedding songs that would really pump up the crowd. He also incorporated some mixes he made that were fantastic! Once the dancing started, it never stopped and everyone had such a great time. We had a few guests with odd requests, Dave handled each request professionally and made sure not to play anything that wouldn't have mixed with the vibe. Dave also made a video of our reception and shared it with us, it was so much fun to watch and we really appreciate that he helped us to preserve those memories.. We can not thank Dave enough for his wonderful talent as a DJ and we highly recommend Event Entertainment.

Dave Holmes from Event Entertainment, was the DJ for our daughters wedding. Dave was great, from the first time we met; organized, informative and had so many choices of music available. We were so impressed, we booked him that day.
He kept the music going and had guests on the dance floor all the time. Everyone had a wonderful time and we appreciate the video his wife took of the wedding. It was a great way to share the event, with family and friends who could not attend.
We highly recommend Dave and Event Entertainment for your event.

This review is long overdue, but worth it! You should sign with them immediately!

My wife and I really cannot thank Event Entertainment enough for their DJ services. We researched many DJ companies, but most of them either did not fit our personality or were very expensive. We found Event Entertainment when my wife attended the "Brides Against Breast Cancer" event held in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. Dave Holmes (the owner) and DJ Brandon were incredible with communicating with us upon initial contact. They were in our price range and prepared us with all of the details well in advance. They provided up-lighting and they were familiar with our venue, too. To be honest, they were the only vendor who responded immediately to our endless e-mails of questions. As a bride and groom, it was very appreciative to be made a priority in planning one of the best days of our lives. We only met with them when we first signed the contract and two weeks before our wedding day, but it felt like we almost had monthly meetings because their attentiveness and prompt responses. Our last meeting really was the icing on the cake... We met with DJ Brandon two weeks before the wedding to finalize the timeline and playlist. All of the puzzle pieces came together and they were truly the glue to our wedding day. DJ Brandon was incredibly helpful with working out all of the final details, including music suggestions for the ceremony processional, recessional, wedding party introductions, parent dances, etc. It alleviated any stress we had leading up to the actual day. We ended up extending our reception in the weeks leading up to the wedding and Dave was very accommodating with us. The day of our wedding was amazing! DJ Brandon kept us on track with our timeline and did a great job interacting with our guests. He also put together a CD with our playlist which was such a special touch. We have him to thank for making our wedding unforgettable!

Dave was very helpful getting us started with DJ services for our wedding. He arranged for us to meet with Steve Smelser who talked to us about options for entertaining our guests at the wedding. When we decided to book with DJ Steve, we were sent a link to our personalized event planning website where we selected songs and entered specific details about our wedding. This website was very helpful and kept us organized throughout the planning process. We talked on the phone to DJ Steve the week before our wedding- even though the conversation only took about 20 minutes, the ceremony and reception ended up going exactly as planned. DJ Steve was very accommodating, playing all of the music we requested and even helping my mom with a 'centerpiece raffle' she had come up with. Even though we had a Sunday afternoon wedding, the dance floor stayed pretty busy and everyone said they had a great time.

We were lucky enough to get Dave Holmes himself from Event Entertainment as our DJ for our July wedding in Pasadena, MD. From the very beginning of our communication, Dave was extremely helpful and eager to please. We met with him a few weeks prior to the wedding to go over song selections and ceremony/reception details. He wanted to make sure he could pronounce everyone's name correctly, which was important to us! After our meeting, I emailed him a few more times about songs we had forgotten, and Dave got back to me right away. The ceremony and wedding music was perfect and exactly what we asked for! Tons of family members and friends commented on what a great DJ we had. We would highly recommend Dave from Event Entertainment for your wedding!

We had the pleasure of having DJ Dave Holmes as our DJ at our cocktail hour and wedding reception on August 22nd. Dave was wonderful to work with!!! From the start, he was very responsive, answering all of my questions right away and providing me with important information regarding the music for the reception. As we got closer to the big day, he contacted me multiple times checking in with us to make sure he had the correct songs, correct pronunciation of names to announce , etc. We had him provide uplighting for our reception space, and he did not have the exact color I wanted, but he was able to find it right away and was happy to do so. On the day of, it looked beautiful in the room. The music played was exactly our taste, at one point in the last hour of the reception I asked him if he could play mostly newer music since a lot of the older crowd had left and he was very receptive and did just that. He really kept the party going and everyone danced the whole night! If you want to have a FUN wedding reception, book DJ Dave :)

Our wedding occurred the day after a major storm hit the area with widespread power outages. The hotel and many surrounding businesses lost power and had limited emergency lighting. Our DJ was able to connect to an emergency generator to support his complex audio setup. DJ Mike was instrumental in helping keep our guest entertained through a very difficult reception (hotel had no air conditioning and limited lighting due to power outage). Mike demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, flexibility and responsiveness you can expect from a DJ. I would highly recommend DJ Mike and Event Entertainment to anyone who expects nothing but the best in DJ entertainment.
Many thanks!!

Let me begin by saying we could not have been happier with the services of Event Entertainment and our DJ. Dave Holmes was the DJ for our wedding on 10/17/15. When we first contacted Event Entertainment about DJing services, they responded very quickly and automatically set us up with Dave. They provided a price quote upfront, which was very reasonable. Dave was so nice and professional, and always responsive, responding very quick to any questions/comments we had. We had some songs that we definitely wanted to be played during the rest of the reception, but we also left most of it up to Dave to pick which songs were appropriate to keep our guests on the dance floor. He did great! Our guests were dancing all night and all said how good the music was. At the last minute, I mean like an hour or two before the wedding started, my mother asked Dave if he had any uplights with him that he could set up. He didn’t have any with him but offered to make a quick run to his house (thankfully which was just down the road) and grab some. We were so thankful of this and the lights looked awesome! They really were a nice touch. Dave also videotaped some of our wedding, made a video, and shared it with us. This was unexpected, but very appreciated, and really left us in awe. Talk about going above and beyond! 
I would highly recommend Event Entertainment (specifically Dave, although I am sure all of the other DJs are great as well) to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or special event. You will not be disappointed!! The customer service was outstanding and they are great to work with. Thank you Dave for everything, although we can’t thank you enough!!

He would always get right back to me with suggestions or to let me know he received my message. He was also really flexible when we had to make some last minute changes to our ceremony! The reception was amazing and was a great, fun party my family and friends will never forget! Totally magical. I highly recommend Dave and Event Entertainment.

DJ Dave was absolutely perfect. He did a phenomenal job of working our crowd and ensuring that everyone was up and dancing. He took requests, nailed our itinerary, and was an overall joy to work with. Dave showed up early and was prepared way before he had to be. The video he took and sent to us showed how Dave goes above and beyond to provide top quality service. Thanks Dave!!!

Steve did a tremendous job of helping coordinate the reception events, as well as keeping our guests happy by reading an audience and knowing how to keep them on the dance floor.  His professional demeanor and expertise made planning for our event a stress-free experience.  Above all, his warmth and personable nature made Steve a pleasure to work with, and gave our guests a memorable night of entertainment.
