"My wife and I hired AllStar for DJ and Uplighting service for our wedding. The staff at AllStar in Andover was very responsive, courteous, and helped us pick out the right DJ for our wedding given our personalities and budget. Our DJ and our Lighting designer were both top notch, and we highly recommend them!!! The wedding went great!" Patrick and Yu-Ting
AllStar DJs and Ivy League Wedding DJs
We have 2 different DJ divisions, for maximum flexibility in finding a perfect match for your DJ entertainment. Our DJs will help plan and organize your wedding with you in advance, then run the timeline as your master of ceremonies and coordinate all the other vendors at your reception so that everyone is on the same page.
How do the 2 DJ divisions differ?
Our award-winning AllStar DJs typically perform a full variety of music for all generations including any traditional favorites that may be requested (provided they are not on your "DO NOT PLAY" list). The AllStar DJs are experienced, flexible, and accommodating to your guests, able to adapt their style anywhere from low-key to high-energy, based entirely on your wishes. The overall focus is keeping everyone in attendance entertained, having fun and dancing until the very end.
Our new "Ivy League Wedding DJs" offer a refreshingly different approach... articulate young MCs with minimal DJ chatter once the formal announcements are over; no games, cheesy line dances or cliche' overplayed "wedding music" EVER and a strong emphasis on contemporary, cutting-edge, beat-mixed dance music to keep the floor packed. If you have specific tastes in music they are happy to adapt to your needs. An ideal match for those who do not want a traditional "Wedding DJ".
Unlike some companies, you'll meet our office staff, owner and your DJ in person, before you even hire us. The DJ you select and book is named on the contract and guaranteed in writing. He'll customize the music and formalities to your tastes, and our full-time office staff will be available every time you have a question or need our help, because...at AllStar, it's all about the bride.
AllStar UpLighting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel Cambridge, MA
"My fiance and I used AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting for our July wedding (Hyatt Regency in Cambridge shown above), and we could not have been happier. From Day 1, we were very impressed with the agency’s professionalism. Michael Edwards, the owner and veteran DJ, was extremely helpful and responsive; we had numerous phone calls with him to go over all the details and he was always very sincere, helpful, and easy to talk to.
On our wedding day, everything was perfect! Before the ceremony, our DJ (Brian McCarthy) coordinated with the hotel staff, our officiant ,and the live musicians that we had and confirmed that everyone was mic'd up appropriately and that all acoustics sounded right on key. He ensured that everything ran smoothly.
After a flawless ceremony, DJ Brian continued to impress everyone throughout the evening. He ensured that the bridal party and parents were all lined up in the correct order before we made our entrance into the ballroom. Everything was right on cue, and the timing and announcements of all our events flowed smoothly and perfectly as if the evening had been rehearsed hundreds of times!
As a veteran MC, DJ Brian McCarthy knew exactly what song to play by "feeling" the crowd's energy level. Also, he was very professional/respectful in playing the songs that we had requested on our "must play" list, and was mindful of not playing any songs on our "do not play" list.
Our uplighting technician, Casey Brown, also did an exceptional job. Casey’s work was stunning, and it enhanced our already breathtaking view of the Boston skyline. We had requested the lights change along with the music, and Casey was a champ in orchestrating such an awesome effect – subtle, yet noticeable.
This truly is an AllStar agency – my wife and I are extremely happy with the exceptional services provided. Worth every penny
Thanks again AllStar!"

AllStar Featured on National Television...
AllStar Entertainment & UpLighting were recently hired to plan, DJ and design the uplighting at a wedding featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network Reality TV Show, "Don't Tell the Bride" (Season 1, episode 8). We are proud and honored to have been the only Boston-based entertainment agency selected for this nationally televised show. The couple, Joe & Cristin recently had their first baby. Congrats!!!
UpLighting, if done correctly, applies the right number of wireless LED uplighting fixtures to your venue to evenly wash the room in the color theme you desire. From a simple, warm candle-like glow during your on-site ceremony to dramatic, sweeping color changes that add excitement to the dancing during your reception... we'll match your vision exactly. The lighting can be soft and subtle or bold and intense... it's all up to you and your vision.
You'll never see our DJs operating the uplighting... since we ALWAYS include a full-time professional lighting designer to help you plan the lighting in advance and then to attend your wedding for 5 hours to maintain and operate the uplighting by remote control. You decide: a) one elegant color theme all night, b) add pre-planned color changes for your special moments (upon your entrance, fist dance, cake cutting, parent dances etc) c) back to constant original color theme after dinner, or d) exciting "live" color changes by the designer timed to the music to add energy to the dance floor. We can even match the lights to match your dinner napkins, bridesmaids gowns or color swatches. The choices are endless. See for yourself by making an office appointment to view a free demo of your wedding colors in our uplighting showroom.

Here's a tent wedding at the Stevens Estate in North Andover.... just before our lighting designer arrived.
Here's what the guests arrived to see instead.... which look do you prefer? Perhaps a different color?
Same tent later that evening...
"Boy!! You blew away our expectations!! I have received so many compliments on our DJ selection. Phil's father actually fast-danced - UNHEARD OF! Michael, you are one of the first people I've worked with that surpassed all of their claims. You really put my mind at ease because of how seriously you take each and every client's event and how much you love what you do.
Thanks you... loyal client for life."

"Mike and I were amazed by how wonderful the night turned out because of you.. you were our top vendor! You did everything I asked just perfectly... your energy and enthusiasm stayed alive the entire night. You made the vision I had of my wedding day come to life, and you also really helped to calm my nerves by making yourself available, returning all of my calls & answering all of my questions. You really covered all of the bases. I would highly recommend you to everyone I know."
