The are truly the best!
I do not have enough good things to say about Gary Hoffmann, 74 Events and our absolutely hands down most amazing DJ, James Arnold!! We got married in Beacon, NY and 74 Events went above and beyond to make sure everything for our special day was perfect. James mixed in music we suggested with his own flare and people legitimately did not leave the dance floor ALL night. They could not stop raving about the music. James' methods and style was absolute perfection. Aside from that, their professionalism and completely transparent system from the moment we contacted them made the entire process seamless.
Props to them for truly being the best!!

When my husband and I first reached out to Gary at 74 Events, he responded immediately and set us up with our DJ, Dan Chavez. We did what everyone does; we googled questions to ask your DJ during your first meeting. We never even got to that list because Gary and Dan answered every question and more. Gary was as responsive throughout the process as he was in our first emails. He thought of everything, so we didn't have to.
And Dan! We can't say enough about him and his work! He completely understood our (different) musical tastes and seamlessly blended them together. Once the dance floor opened up, the party didn't stop. In fact, we had to clear a couple more tables to make more room to dance, that's how great the music was. Dan created the perfect soundtrack to our wedding.
Overall, we couldn't ask for a better experience with 74 Events! We highly recommend!

There are no other options - Only 74 Events
My wife (still a little wild to say) were married a week ago Friday (November 2018) and James Arnold was our D.J. from 74 Events. We had the most incredible experience from the first contact with Gary through the final song, every moment was meticulously planned out and executed without incident. My wife and I are both project managers, and we were blown away by Gary's attention to detail - there wasn't a stone unturned. By the time our wedding day rolled around we knew we needn't worry about the music one bit. James Arnold is a genius, it's as if he tapped our brains and created our PERFECT playlist. We gave him some general artists and themes and he created a playlist masterpiece. EVERYONE at the wedding said how incredible the music was. In addition, he really helped make sure we were on schedule, eeking out a few more songs past our end time like a hero. A good friend of mine who does wedding planning in NYC said there's really no one else you would want to hire, and she was 100% right. It's some of the best money you'll ever spend.
Gary and his army of accomplished DJs from 74 Events are by far the best people I've worked with to spin music for your wedding day! During the planning process, Gary will take excellent care of his couples, and always is prompt with his correspondence! Come wedding day, he selects the absolute best match for your DJ/emcee needs. I've had the pleasure of working with BOTH of his DJs named James - Mulry and Arnold - and felt 100% taken care of by each! Their knowledge of music - both mainstream and obscure (EDM set, anyone?) - runs deep, and they are so smooth with the emcee duties. No one is yelling at you to get on the dance floor here! Do yourself a favor and book them today!
Every time we work with Gary, the planning has been a breeze! His DJs helped me keep the night moving and kept the dance floor full! The last wedding that we worked with Rob, the floor was packed all night long. I have started recommending them to all my clients!
Amazing Dj I have been working and recommending him for almost 10 years !!
