Chris Makiej was a phenomenal DJ both leading up to and on the day of our wedding. From the first contact with Terry, the owner of the company, Crown Entertainment was responsive, professional, and very detail focused. Before choosing Chris as our DJ, he spoke to us at length about his style, experience, and customization he provided for each event. Leading up to our wedding, Chris was in close contact with us by text and phone, ensuring our reception introduction, events, and accompanying music were well planned. He was very detail oriented, happy to appease any and all requests and generally a really nice guy.

Day of, Chris was phenomenal. To start, he provided sound equipment for our outdoor ceremony and musician. Without being a distraction, he adjusted microphones repeatedly so everyone heard every last word, even our vows.

Then, it was time to party! Although it was a humid July night, Chris' music selection and timing had everyone up on the dance floor all night. He played oldies, modern hits, and some more crowd pleasers that got everyone of all ages dancing. Even our elderly and not so spry relatives were on the floor. Every time we as the bride and groom mentioned a request or suggestion, he took care of it. At the end of the night, the dance floor was packed with everyone begging for one last song; although we have been to many weddings with that crowd of guests, we'd never heard our guests so sad for the party to end.

Finally, what truly stood out was how Chris handled the unexpected. After a medical emergency delayed our first dance and the start of the party, Chris went with the flow and re- adapted our schedule exactly as we suggested on the fly. He was absolutely fantastic to work with and the perfect DJ for our wedding -we would and will recommend him to all our friends.

I have so many positive things to say about Crown Entertainment. From our initial contact, Terry was always completely on top of anything I asked about or wanted done. Emails were answered timely, phone calls were never missed. The website they provide you with is awesome. Being able to log any music you would liked played (or not played) was great. I especially loved being able to basically make a time-line of the event for them to go by, play by play. I knew what was coming up next, what I wanted the DJ to say, what games or special dancey songs I wanted to incorporate. We went all out and used the photobooth as well as the up lighting. Money well spent. It completely changes the mood of your venue. I cant stress enough, lose the centerpieces if you have to - get the photobooth! We chose the package where all the photos were put into an album and we were given that to take home at the end of the night. Months later we still pop that open and laugh. Worth it. Having the up lighting was my best decision hands down. Especially if you want your guests to dance! Our DJ Chris Makiej was on point with not only the music but creating an atmosphere with the up lighting that just blew everyone away. Guests still comment on how great the spaced looked with the different lighting throughout the night. Chris himself was extremely personable, accommodating, and just overall great to work with. We had such a great night we asked to extend the reception an hour more and Chris kept the party going right on, like it was always planned to be that long of an event. Long story short, if you want an awesome night, don't skimp on your entertainment services. Crown was so wonderful to work with, and we plan to use them again for other large family functions. We were beyond satisfied with everything they did.

Chris was great. He was very helpful, friendly, and played some great music. He was very accommodating to what we were looking for and very professional. I will definitely pass along your companies name next time someone is looking for a DJ. Also Leah and I would like to thank you and Chris for helping us make our party exactly what we were hoping. Everyone had a blast.

Terry is a great dj! He had everyone up dancing until the very end! I went with a holiday/christmas theme wedding and he went above and beyond my expectations to bring that theme across throughout the night! It was a blast!

weddings are wonderful, but a lot of work. My wife pretty much planned it all, but I recommended the DJ. Yep, she let me be responsible for that. Ha. Well let's just say she was thrilled that I did, Criwn Entertainment took our wedding from a 9 to a 10! The DJ was awesome, music selection was awesome and DJ was very flexible and accommodating !

DJ Terry was amazing!! exactly what we were looking for. I always think that a DJ makes a wedding and he sure did. One of the reasons we went with him was because he guaranteed he wouldn't play the non traditional wedding music i,e, no electric slide ( not that there is anything wrong with it - its just not us) he listened to our likes and dislikes and stuck to it helping to make an amazing playlist that kept everyone was on the dance floor all night long - all ages!! Our guest even two months later keep telling us what a great time they had and how much the enjoyed the music:-)

thank you Terry for helping to make our wedding so memorable.

I used Crown Entertainment for my wedding and couldn't be happier with the services they provided. We used DJ Paul Dailey and also used the photobooth and uplighting services. Everyone was raving about what a great job Paul did. The dance floor was never empty and he stuck to our "do play" and "do not play" lists. The photobooth was a big hit among our guests. I would highly recommend using DJ Paul Dailey and Crown Entertainment for your wedding or other party!

Chris and Terry were both fantastic! From the very beginning they were both very easily accessible and I can't tell you how many times I emailed Terry with random little questions and he would get back to me almost immediately!

We video conferenced to make sure every detail was exactly as we wanted it. Everyone LOVED the photo booth. They also took the time and put together a surprise video for us on our wedding day and had EVERYONE dancing until the place closed! Can't thank them tonight for how great everything turned out!

My (now) husband and I could not have asked for a better DJ/MC for our wedding. Terry was professional from the very beginning, helping guide us through the maze of wedding planning, not only in respects to the reception organization and music but also in many other aspects including referred vendors, tips on choosing them, etc. His tenure in the industry was above all else. His on-line planner was easy to navigate and allows each bride and groom to customize their special day. Our guests loved the ability to make song requests on-line, helping create a night of dancing that everyone enjoyed. Terry's services are priced very reasonable and worth every penny. You will be guaranteed a great party!

No one warned me that being the bride, my wedding would be so chaotic and all over the place but I have to say Terry made my wedding happen! It seemed like he not only was our DJ but at times the planner too, making it all come together. Because of him, we had an amazing time and so did our guests. We can't thank him enough. He went above and beyond for us. He is very easy going and great to work with. By far, he is the BEST!! The photo booth was also a GREAT hit. My guests loved it and we had a blast looking at all of the pictures afterward! :)

I cannot say enough great things about Terry and his crew at Crown Entertainment! From our first meeting, we knew we were dealing with a true professional. Terry is incredibly experienced, talented, totally reliable, and most importantly has a great personality. My husband and I instantly knew we had to secure DJ Terry for our wedding. We used Crown Entertainment for a variety of services. At Terry’s suggestion we decided to use amplification for the ceremony. I am so grateful he brought this to our attention because with an outdoor ceremony on the water, our guests would have otherwise been unable to hear the most meaningful moments of our wedding, including the musicians and the touching words of our officiant. The equipment was completely unobtrusive, yet made a world of difference.

One important quality we wanted in a DJ (in addition to playing great music) was an ability to keep everything running smoothly, guiding guests throughout the wedding. Terry and his 2nd DJ did not miss a beat. Working with our vendors, Terry perfectly coordinated all phases of the reception from the bridal party entrance, to the first dance, to the speeches, to the cake cutting, to the dancing. Knowing he was in control gave me such ease and allowed me to have fun and enjoy our day. Terry’s choice of music was spot on. Guests of all age-groups were on the dance floor throughout the night. Incorporating our personal taste and style into the reception, Terry played all our musical requests (which were A LOT!!), yet used his experience to know what songs to play and when. Finally, our reception was in a big white tent, and Terry’s use of uplights provided a perfect balance to create a more fun and intimate ambiance. Crown Entertainment’s commitment to their clients is unsurpassed. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding, or any event. You will not be disappointed!

Crown Entertainment was a pleasure to work with from the very first meeting. Terry listened to everything we wanted and planned an event that perfectly matched our preferences and the preferences of our guests. We have received so many compliments from our family and friends on the music and videos at our wedding. Every single minute was perfect. We were enjoying the entertainment so much we extended the event. We can't say enough nice things about Crowne Entertainment. If you are lucky enough to secure their time do not hesitate. Book immediately!

We are very happy with how the wedding turned out. Our guests enjoyed themselves very much :)
We were running a little late because of the photo shoot and the fact that it was so hard to bustle my dress! Chris was very personable and tried to keep everything on time. He was great at making us feel at ease too. As you said, he is good with the mic and comfortable in front of a big crowd.
Many guests said the song selection was very good. It seemed to have catered to majority of the people at the wedding. I honestly was too busy to have noticed it but the mere fact we had people always on the dance floor was a good sign.
The lighting was phenomenal. it was absolutely breathtaking and just turned the entire evening magical. We saw the colors change from outside the room, and it was so beautiful. Jordan and Katie did a phenomenal job.
The monogram border was very sharp and clear, the names not so much. I am guessing it was because it was the pink color I had chosen.
There were some slight technical difficulties like the First Dance video not starting on time and the Parent Video ending too soon before the last few slides were shown. The song for the Last Dance also was different from what we had requested, but it worked well for the group of people (better than our initial choice, I think) that were still with us at that time.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. Thank you so much Terry!

Terry did an absolutely perfect job at my wedding! He played every song that my husband and I asked for and kept everyone on the dance floor! He even took over the role of event coordinator, as mine was missing in action for most of the night. He made sure every part of my wedding went smoothly from the ceremony, to the cutting of the cake, to making sure all the guests were where they needed to be to share in each moment with us and most of all...be entertained!

Terry did an amazing job at our wedding in Charleston, SC! He made sure every part of the wedding went smoothly, even taking the place of our own wedding coordinator when she failed to initiate certain events of our wedding! He had everyone on the dance floor for the entire reception and my guests still are telling me how much fun they had dancing at my wedding to the perfect variety of music. A++++ for Terry Moran, I guarantee you an amazing wedding if he is your DJ! He will work to make your wedding the day you dreamed of and has the experience and reviews to prove it!
