We haven't had our wedding yet but fred has been amazing so far! He was so flexible in meeting with us and has helped us through the process so far perfectly! We have had nothing but positive experiences so far and are so excited for him to DJ our wedding!
I had DJ Clark Sillery for my wedding reception on 10/10/15. He was wonderful from our first encounter! Clark is extremely experienced, and was able to get everyone up and dancing at our wedding reception. Clark was flexible enough to get all of my special requests in, and made sure that our wedding reception was perfect. When I lost track of time I didn't need to worry because Clark was there to nudge me on to the next part of the reception :) He was an excellent MC/DJ and would highly recommend him!! Thank you Clark!
When working with The Coastal House for our wedding reception, we asked for a recommendation of a DJ in the area. Fred was first on the list, and now we know why! Fred did an amazing job keeping the flow of our reception. He had such a great read on the room, and was careful to play a little bit of everything to get everyone out on the dance floor. Pricing was so reasonable, especially since Fred also helped us to have music at a separate ceremony location. One thing to keep in mind - He's the best in the area and books very quickly and in advance, so call and reserve him now! We were lucky we were having a day wedding because he was completely booked for the evenings by the time we called and went to another wedding after ours that night!
Fred was fantastic. We are “in the business” as they say, and we were very picky and specific about what we wanted. Fred listened to each of our requests and concerns and exceeded our expectations. He was very attentive to our needs and was extremely generous with his time. In addition to his great DJ/MCing for our wedding, he also provided sound for our ceremony. In spite of all the wind from our outdoor ceremony, the sound was very clear and there was no feedback. Fred is a master at his job.
This review is for James of Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys. I would absolutely recommend James for your wedding day. His talents exceeded our expectations, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. He was extremely responsive to emails leading up to the wedding day and even agreed to meet with us in person to talk about the logistics of the day. He made a point to play all of our requested songs, and kept the crowd dancing all night long. I truly believe a DJ can make or break the wedding reception and I have no doubts in my mind that James is the reason the reception was a huge success.
We used Clark Sillery for our wedding from Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys. Fred Pappalardo DJ's was recommended to us through our venue and Clark was the DJ who was available and we LUCKED OUT. Clark was wonderful. He sent us a really comprehensive survey before the wedding (we live away from the venue) and then we had a long phone conversation and many emails throughout the year. He did everything we asked and really read the crowd exactly right- everyone from age 90 to 14 was dancing all night. Everyone has told us how much fun our wedding was and how much fun they had dancing. Clark also has a really nice presence and way about him- he is very unassuming when he needs to be but also really perfect when it came time to announce that we were doing our first dance, etc. (not at all like a non-wedding event DJ, I hate that feeling at weddings). Clark is a wonderful DJ and a great guy. I would recommend him highly to anyone!
So here I am again - yes, both daughters were married this summer. And both times we used Fred Pappalardo Disc Jockeys for our reception music! This time we had Fred himself, whom my husband and I have known for years. He was fantastic. There are not enough superlatives to do him justice. But I'll try...Outstanding selections, professional from A to Z, accommodating and gracious for all the additions we came up with, just a super guy who knows his stuff. He judges the audience on the fly and knows what to play to get them up and staying on the dance floor. Cannot recommend him more highly - a 5.0 out of 5.0 for sure. Call Fred today!
I had James perform as my DJ at my wedding and he did an absolutely unbelievable job. I have received so many compliments on the DJ that it's incredible. He did such a great job mixing it up to please the older crowd and the younger crowd that had everyone up on the dance floor literally all night, including my 95 year old great grandmother. The floor was packed and everyone is still talking about how much fun it was. He listened to exactly what we wanted, was very responsive on any questions that we had, and was more than helpful. James made our wedding a night to remember and I would highly, highly recommend him.
We had James McNally DJ our wedding at the 1888 Barn in Bethel ME. From the moment we met him we knew his calm demeanor was going to work well for us. He had never worked at our venue before but came in and did his thing like he had been there a hundred times. We gave him some songs and the types of songs we wanted played at about what time and it was absolutely perfect. He helped coordinate the night and it ran perfectly. He was a huge part of making it a success and guests and other vendors commented on what a great job he did. I could not recommend him more.
We danced all night long! Our guests are still talking about our wedding and how the dance floor was full from beginning to end. We met with DJ Fred at his home in Maine and booked him right away. He was professional and responsive and we could tell he was so passionate about his work. He was so great to work with. We would highly recommend him!!
We got married at the Union Bluff Hotel in York, Maine and the two things we cared about the most was having good weather and having good music. Luckily for us we had the best weather weekend of the summer and DJ Fred took care of all the music. This guy is the best! We met him at one of the wedding tastings, looked around at a few other vendors and when I called him to get a quote I was instantly comfortable with Fred. He is personable, he listens and he is all about having fun with your guests. He invited us to his house to go over the music for our wedding day and took his time with us as we were there for almost two hours. He genuinely cared that we were happy and that my now wife had the day she truly wanted. Fred took care of our lawn ceremony and quickly got himself ready for the reception immediately following. Honestly, he should charge more for the services he provides. If you get married in Maine this is the guy to call. Thanks Fred! Our guests still are complimenting us on your song selections and good natured attitude. John and Kelli.
I would recommend DJ Fred Pappalardo and his team without hesitation. I've known Fred for some years but not DJ Clark Sillery whom we worked with. He was extremely professional, responsive, adaptable (my husband and I are musicians and threw a couple curves to him that he handled with graciousness and aplomb) and attuned to the needs of the crowd. My daughter and her new husband loved their reception and Clark kept it humming along. Everyone had a great time. Thank you, Clark!
Fred was our DJ for our wedding on July 4th and he did such a great job. All of our guests kept telling us how great the DJ was and we all danced non-stop all night. Thank you so much Fred for all of your suggestions and help throughout this whole process. It was an amazing day and Fred was part of it!
Fred was a consummate professional, and took such care to accommodate any and all changes or alterations to our reception. Friendly, talented, and thoughtful, we knew right away we had chosen the best DJ for the job when we hired Fred.
At the recommendation of our photographer, we asked Fred to DJ our wedding at the Nonantum. Fred was able to stay in touch via email and then we went to Fred's home to meet prior to the wedding. Fred was extremely flexible with timing and also offered multiple meetins so we did one in person a few phone calls. We told Fred what we didn't want as well as a list of a few songs we definitely wanted. He filled in the rest and did an amazing job with guests dancing all night (and guests of all ages). We were unsure about uplighting so Fred offered to bring the, and set them up. We were then able to quickly decide what color we wanted prior to the wedding.
My husband and I could not have been more pleased the job that Fred did and would highly recommend him to anyone.
We were lucky to have Clark Sillery as our DJ at our June wedding. From the beginning, we liked Clark's approach, which we found to be much more accommodating than some other DJs we had spoken with, and we were not disappointed on our wedding day. Clark incorporated our many guest requests, and kept the dance floor filled most of the night. He was easy to work with, and even brought along uplighting to add to our venue. Overall, we were really thrilled with his service, and in terms of value, these guys can't be beat. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a DJ in the New England area (our wedding was in MA)!
