Gary and Ben are a Dream Team!

All I wanted for my wedding was to spend the night on the dance floor, and wow did Ben Carlin of 74 Events deliver. One guest called it a "Millennial Dream". Once the dancing started it didn't stop. Combined with Gary's attention to detail in the booking and planning process = dream team. Book them!

Best wedding DJ of all time!

Ben and Gary exceeded our expectations in every way! Ben is an incredibly talented DJ and his set list had everyone at our wedding dancing the entire night. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a blast on the dance floor and nailed it with his final song choices. On top of the Gary is the most professional, caring, and responsive person I have ever worked with. Can not recommend 74 Events and Ben enough!

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!
