Wonderful and Professional
We are so glad we chose 74 events for our wedding. From the very first email, Gary was extremely professional and transparent with all the information in regards to the DJ package. I am someone who very much appreciates getting all the information up front before I make a decision and Gary delivered on that. Throughout the planning process, we left each meeting and phone call in a great mood. We were pleased and felt assured that we were in the right hands.
Gary suggested James for our wedding and he was nothing short of amazing. As we reviewed music choices, they were very honest about what will and won’t work for your party and do their best to accommodate your music selections. On the day of the wedding, James was perfect. He was a complete professional, kept the dance floor going, and the songs transitioned seamlessly. We had multiple people come up to us to tell us how much they loved him! We could not have imagined our wedding day any better than it turned out and we know that’s because of their hard work.
We have no regrets going with 74 Events and if we ever have another occasion where we need DJ services we would book them again in a heartbeat.

Amazing Wedding DJ- James!!
Gary, the owner, set us up with our DJ- James. He was INCREDIBLE. Got the dance floor moving at all the right times, played a perfect mix of what we wanted. It was very specifically us. From the minute we reached out to 74Events, they assisted us not only with music choices, but also gave great advice on transitions and timeline of our wedding day. James was a great MC, not intrusive or "cheesy". He kept it moving but also gave space for speeches and intimate moments. It was a perfect choice for our perfect day.

The most fun night!
Gary and James Arnold are the best!!
I should start with this little bit of information - I'm English and my husband in American. We wanted a DJ that would appeal to my European family and to all of our friends and family here in the States.
I reached out to 74 Events and heard back within a few hours. Gary had paired us with James - he is English, so we wanted to just go ahead and book. Gary encouraged us to come in and meet with him and James first before committing - so refreshing! One of the other vendors I spoke to was harassing me to sign a contract minutes after I sent a request).
We had two very informative meetings with Gary and James prior to the wedding day which was great.
James was fantastic on the day - the music was perfect, the dance floor was full and we had the night of our lives. Almost all of our guests commented on how much they loved James.
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 !!
