Our DJ was Jimmie Espo. Countless people have told us that our wedding was the best they have ever been to, mainly because of Jimmie. Jimmie and his team at 617 Weddings have everything broken down to a science. Not only does Jimmie play great music at the perfect time, but he maintains control of the wedding and makes sure everything goes according to plan. We did not have to worry about anything, knowing that Jimmie had it under control. Three different couples that were at our wedding are already in touch with 617 Wedddings to book their services.
We got married at the Glen Magna farms in danvers Ma on halloween and we had the best wedding ever!! Everyone had so much fun and the dance floor was packed our Dj from 617 JC Castaneda did an amazing job! He was very professional and flexible and we couldn't have asked for a better Dj!
When it comes to a DJ for a wedding, you want to make sure you pick the right one since they are the one who ultimately sets the tone for the whole reception. With DJ Julio, we knew from the first meeting he was going to make our wedding spectacular. And boy were we right! Not only was he professional, attentive, and easy to get a hold of, but he was energetic yet easy going, and just a whole lot of fun to interact with. He made sure that we felt comfortable with all the song choices and the overall flow of the event and even checked in with us during the reception to make sure everything was on the right track. The energy he brought to the reception, everything from the introductions to the various announcements to the dancing, was AWEsome. We had such an epic dance party and I saw friends and family out on that dance floor that I would NEVER have thought to have seen out there!
Thank you so so much to DJ Julio and 617 Weddings for making our wedding incredibly memorable and exciting from start to finish!!
Still speechless by the level of professionalism and quality of service that 617 Weddings, especially Jimmie, Franco, and Anthony had at our wedding!! We had been to a wedding in which Jimmie was the DJ before and actually worked out our wedding date around his availability (yes, he is THAT good)!! From the first day we met Jimmie we KNEW that our wedding would be flawless (as it was), but he went above and beyond our expectations. His experience is unmatchable to any wedding I have ever been too, which would explain why our guests were on the dance floor all night! I received countless compliments about how this was the most fun some people have had in a long time.
Jimmie Espo - THANK YOU for providing us with the best in the business service, and for making October 17th one of the most memorable days of our lives. We seriously can't thank you enough and will never forget you!! If we ever have another event that we need a DJ, I would only reach out to you!
Also, thank you Franco for capturing everything and SO much more on that day - we can't even wait to see the video. You blended right in with everyone that day!
We could not be happier with all of the services that 617 provided us (I also highly recommend the photo booth). Brides - you are missing out if you do not include them in your special day!!
Thank you ALL!

If I could give DJ Chuck Uglietta more than 5 stars, I would. Chuck was the first and the last DJ that my husband and I met with. We knew the minute we started speaking with him that he was the guy for us and that our wedding was in great hands. Chuck was so quick to answer every question I had whether it was music related or not. It didn't matter if it was 9 at night or a Sunday morning, If I send him an email with a question, I had a response in literally minutes. He isn't kidding when he said he would do anything for his brides. When my husband and I were trying to decide on honeymoon destinations, Chuck called us from his home and he and his wife gave us their opinions on places to go and where to look. He even got us in touch with his travel agent. From the very beginning we made it very clear that we wanted our wedding to be a big party, and that is exactly what we got. The energy Chuck brings into the room is undeniable and its impossible not to have a great time. He had people up and out of their chairs dancing before the salad even hit the tables, just as he promised. Its almost two weeks post wedding and I continue to have people rave about what a great time they had,how much fun the DJ was and how they haven't danced like that at a wedding in years. Thank you Chuck for giving us the time of our lives!! We also used 617 for our photography and videography and I cannot say enough great things about them both. Roland Silva was our photographer and he is truly a master of his craft. He had our pictures back to us just days after the wedding and they are beautiful. I cannot pick a favorite. John was the perfect videographer, he was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. He was never in the way, and yet he seemed to be there for all of the important shots. We are looking forward to revisiting our amazing night once the video is ready! All in all, 617 is truly a one stop shop for everything you will need for your wedding entertainment.
DANE IS AN ANIMAL!!! From the second we met him we knew we were in good hands; he just has so much positive energy. He had great song choices (as we were unsure of entrance, recession/procession songs) and knew just how to get the party started. He felt very comfortable communicating with all of our vendors and made the entire night run very smooth. His assistant DJ and lighting/photo booth guys were just as amazing. At one point I gave them a not so nice look to change the song because I wasn't a fan and they instantly transitioned into something else. I absolutely loved how much they checked in with us to let us know what was going to be happening next (desserts, parent dances, etc.). And we definitely already shared his name with a few of our engaged family members/friends!

DJ Jimmie Espo did an amazing job! We were originally referred to 617 Weddings DJs through a friend of ours who got married last year where the music/party was excellent. Our venue was Labelle Winery in Amherst, NH and coming up to this area was no problem at all.
DJ Jimmie just got it! The flow of everything was perfect. Fun entrances, organized, good at keeping things moving along (i.e.; special dances, cake cutting, toasts, etc.) and he even made sure we made it back to our table every now and then to eat some food and take a moment to ourselves!
Friends and family of all ages complimented how fun the wedding was! Jimmie was able to keep everyone of all ages on the dance floor all night. It was SO fun and Jimmie helped to give us one of the best and most memorable nights of our lives!
THE BEST!! 617 weddings was the first DJ company we meet with when planning our wedding. We meet with Chuck Uglietta and we were hooked. He had such a positive energy about him and was extremely professional and experienced. Chuck was the first DJ we spoke to for the wedding and the last. We booked that same night we meet. He insisted that we could go home and think about it but we knew we found what we were looking for! Chuck was very attentive to what our needs were. Our goal was to have the dance floor packed all night. He absolutely delivered and then some. Dance floor was full right from the first song played after our first dance till the very last song!!! He is an amazing DJ! Above and beyond our expectations. He knows how to read a crowd and keep everyone dancing. People are still talking about how much they danced at our wedding and how the music selection was awesome. Everyone had a blast!
He was easy to work with and always gave us reminders of appointments and most of all every time I needed him he was right there, he always answered the phone or was quick to respond to an Email. I highly recommend DJ Chuck Uglietta. He absolutely will NOT let you down!! Thank you Chuck for everything!!! There are no words for how happy you made us!!

There are no words that will ever do justice to how amazing DJ Jimmie Espo is! I knew the second I met him I wanted him to DJ our wedding. He is super friendly, high energy, kept the whole night running smoothly and stress-free, and was able to take our mess of a playlist and make something spectacular. We wanted guests out of their seats and dancing as much as possible and he made sure that the dance floor was never empty. I think literally every person who attended our wedding contacted us to say that this was the most fun wedding they had ever been to, which had everything to do with Jimmie!
We also purchased uplighting through Jimmie and what a difference it made to the venue space. He knows what he's doing, I wouldn't have changed a thing!
I had found 617 Weddings through my vendor's recommendation and from this website and I can absolutely see why they recommend this company. From the start, they were extremely responsive and easy to work with. Once we decided to use them, we were given our choice of 3 different DJs and we chose Julio Sanabia which could not have been a better choice! Before meeting with him, 617 weddings gave us a wedding planning form that we could choose to fill out and it honestly made the meeting and wedding go as smoothly as I could ever hope. You input song choices (that you want to hear, and that you really don't want to hear) as well as information about the wedding day itself (where's your venue, who's walking with who, how do you want these people introduced, etc.). Meeting with Julio just verified the great decision that me and my husband made. He was so energetic, fun, personable, and had us laughing the whole time. He told us not to worry, that he would make sure the dance floor was full the whole night, and it was! He was also in charge of the uplighting at the venue, and that looked perfect in my opinion! He knew exactly where to place them to really make the room glow. Guests are still talking about him and how amazing of a job he did that night. Hearing people say that makes me so happy knowing that they were as thrilled with my decision as I was. I will absolutely be recommending this company and Julio specifically as much as possible to anyone I know getting married!
Chris Paul was absolutely amazing!!! He was extremely personable and from our first meeting it was clear that we made the right choice in our DJ. The online portal made things very easy planning wise and made meeting with Chris Paul go smoothly. We were very detailed in what songs we wanted for our bridal party entrance and for our group dance as well as with other things and Chris Paul handled it with ease. He was always responsive to all of our emails with our multiple questions. On the night of the wedding when it was time to get the party started he got everyone up on the dance floor quickly by doing a fun game, and the dance floor stayed full all night. The music he played was great and I don't think there was anyone that was sitting down once the dancing started. To add to the fun Chris Paul let the groom take control of the microphone and do Ice Ice Baby Karaoke style which the guests loved. I cant say enough good things about Chris Paul!
We also booked a photo booth through 617 which was great! This was a big hit with all of our guests and we loved going through the pictures after. They even stayed later then planned and were fantastic.
I would definitely recommend 617 weddings to others as they made our wedding night a blast that people are still talking about!!
We booked 617 weddings about two years ago (long engagement), and I am SO happy we did, Chuck Uglietta, was a phenomenal DJ. Chuck made everything so easy; from the detail meeting to the wedding. There was no stressing on our end thanks to Chuck. Chuck was really easy to work with, so personable, and extremely professional. We are still receiving compliments from our guests at how pleased they were with Chuck and all the great music he played. Everyone danced until the very end. Chuck was always around if we needed him for anything. We would highly recommend 617 Weddings if you want all your guests to have a blast, he seriously rocked the floor! We are forever grateful for Chuck, for all his hard work, and getting people on the dance floor (ages 5-80)! He made it a night to remember! Thanks 617 Weddings! Don't look any further, book with 617 Weddings, you will not be disappointed!

We had DJ Dane and his assistant Tom as the MCs for our wedding in October at the Hyatt Boston Harbor. We were SO happy we went with them - our wedding was SO MUCH FUN! Our families love to party and Dane was great at getting everyone on the dance floor (I have NEVER seen a dance floor fill up so fast!) and the dance floor was jam packed all night! Dane was awesome at accommodating our requests, even when we changed some of our plans right at the last minute. Great music, very professional and energetic DJ, and one really fun really memorable night! Would definitely recommend 617 Weddings and especially Dane.
Chuck was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely professional, and so helpful with anything that we needed for the wedding. Using the suggestions for songs that we gave him, Chuck created a background of music for dinner that was perfect! He also made the centerpiece giveaway hilarious, and so much fun! And the party for the rest of the night was wonderful!! Everyone raved about his ability to get everyone up and enjoying themselves! Chuck was so easy to get in touch with when needed, and great at providing for suggestions for other vendors and how to lay out the day. He, as well as our other vendors from 617 Weddings (Russell Smithe and Roland Silva), did everything in their power to get us outside for the final dance that we had planned with sparklers, even though it had been raining most of the night! Chuck made our night so memorable, and handled the flow of the whole night in conjunction with the staff at the venue. He is a wonderful person, so invested in his couples, and was very empathetic for the losses of a great-grandparent and father that were sorely missed at the wedding. He made sure to include the music chosen in dedication for those we wished could have been part of our day. We would recommend him to anyone looking to have an amazing experience and wonderful person to capture their special day. We could never thank you enough Chuck, you did an amazing job!
DJ Julio Sanabia was amazing and so much fun! He wanted to make sure everyone had a great time dancing and not just certain groups! The pace and the energy was astounding. He was very personable and wanted to make our wedding a fun and a celebration! He personalized things saw what we liked and our guests liked and played accordingly. He even recognized one of my bridesmaids who has major health issues on the dance floor, it was a great moment!
The best decision we made was to marry one another... the second best decision we made, was to have Jimmie Espo as our DJ! We initially found 617 Weddings when we were looking for a photographer, but ended up having an impromptu meeting with Jimmie. We liked him right away and got such a good vibe. Being the professional that he is, Jimmie told us not to book with him that night, but to go home, read reviews, google him and do some research, which we really appreciated. As soon as we started reading reviews, we were sold.
When the big day finally arrived, Jimmie exceeded our expectations (hard to do when they are so high!!) Since neither one of us have gotten married before, we put a lot of trust in our vendors to guide us through the day. Jimmie did just that. When our string trio said they couldn't play because it was too cold, Jimmie told my husband not to worry, he would take care of it and he mic'ed the group so they could play inside but be heard outside (oh, and he had all of our ceremony music on standby to play in case the trio couldn't go on). We didn't have to worry about one thing that day because Jimmie was in control of it all. He was a true master of ceremonies... our guests have mentioned over and over how the "flow" of our wedding was one of the best they have been to. Last, but certainly not least, this man knows how to get a dance floor PACKED! We gave him a bit of guidance on our music taste, and boy did he run with it! Every song was awesome and he even worked in some electronic music for my husband! I think every single guest at our wedding was on the dance floor at one point or another (and many were out there the entire night!)
I could go on and on, but bottom line, Jimmie made our wedding a night we will never forget! You will not regret having Jimmie Espo as your DJ!
