74 Events were AMAZING!

74 Events was the absolute best wedding vendor we used. Their level of professionalism was unmatched. Gary (the owner of the company) was incredibly organized. Legitimately the best vendor we worked with. We had no idea what we wanted going in, and Gary helped us figure out the best option for us.

Daniel Tipton (the dj) was amazing as well. He set up all of our mics for the ceremony, played music for the cocktail hour, dinner and reception. Daniel was great at reading the room, knowing when to cut out of a song and had a really good vision for the evening. People loved him, he nailed the music, and overall he was just an incredibly nice guy. Our dance floor was packed the entire night.

10/10 would recommend both 74 events and Daniel Tipton.

How every wedding vendor should be

74Events was an absolute pleasure to work with. From the start of the process, Gary, the owner, made planning this part of our wedding seamless. If there's one thing that anybody who has planned a wedding knows, its that the responsiveness from their vendors that can make all the difference. Gary was extremely responsive at all hours of the day. That, along with his attention to detail, was extremely helpful. Our DJ, Aaron, did a great job. He payed attention to all of the requests that we gave him and added songs that he knew would keep the dancing going. I would recommend 74Events to any couple looking for great DJs.

They understood the assignment!

I’m sure everyone has their own music taste and wedding vision and the second Gary and Duane looked at our “DJ worksheet” they knew exactly what to do. We were having so much fun the night of we decided to extend Duane for an hour so much appreciate the flexibility and amazing work!!!!! 10/10 highly recommend.

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!
