    Best in the business

    Service was top-notch! Everything from start to finish was perfect for our wedding. Jim and his crew go above and beyond to make the occasion unique and memorable. Would recommend him to anyone, and will use Collins Entertainment in the future!!!!!!

    DJ Kevin Barnett

    My husband and I hired Kevin Barnett through Collins Entertainment to DJ our wedding. Kevin met with me prior to the wedding and took detailed notes on my bridal party, what songs I wanted played, requests from my guests, and what songs I definitely didn't want played . Who knew there was a specific song for cake cutting? I didn't. We remained in contact in the weeks leading up to my wedding about finalizing things so I wouldn't have to worry about anything the day of. Kevin took the time to go over every little detail of our reception and what would be played during cocktail hour, dinner, and songs we wanted played for dancing. Kevin went above and beyond our expectations. He cultivated such a fun and exciting night, while keeping it very professional as he MCed through the events of our reception. He even helped us organize a group picture of everyone at our reception by calling them onto the dance floor. We got an awesome picture and it was a great way to get everyone dancing. Kevin even came up to me at the reception to ask if there were any other songs that i wanted to hear. Whatever I told him I wanted to hear he would play it next. Loved hearing all my favorite songs surrounded by all the people I love. My guests have told me that our wedding was one of the best weddings they've attended, and I believe Kevin's professional DJ skills created such a fun atmosphere. Would definitely recommend him for all my friends and family members who are currently engaged. We loved having Kevin be apart of our special day.

    A great experience from start to finish

    We hired Collins Entertainment to DJ/MC our wedding on September 27, 2019 after a long online search. We knew we had chosen the right company after reading numerous, positive reviews. What really sold us was our initial video chat meeting with owner Jim. It was so convenient to chat through video rather than in person. Jim really took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for for our wedding. We were very impressed with how organized everything was. We filled out a form that outlined our music tastes and preferences. There was also an online portal we were given access to that helped us list songs that were “must plays” or “do not plays”. There were several meetings with Jim prior to the main event which were extremely helpful and fun. Closer to the wedding date, we had the chance to video chat with our DJ/MC Mike who quickly got a sense for our music vision and made us feel even more confident in our decision. On the actual wedding day, Mike did an incredible job. The ceremony music was seamless and just what we had outlined. The reception couldn’t have run more smoothly thanks to Jim’s organization. Everything was timed just right and we did not have to worry about a thing. Mike checked in with us frequently to be sure things were going as planned. Everyone was on the dance floor all night. The music mix was perfect for all ages. We couldn’t have been happier with Collins Entertainment and would recommend them to anyone!

    Jim Collins Entertainment is amazing! I recently officiated a ceremony where he was the DJ. As soon as he played his music, the guests were alive! His presentation of the wedding party was impressive. His voice matches his MC role nicely. But the moment that took my breath away was his performance, the lighting effect, smoke on the floor, making it magical for the couple's first dance! I highly recommend Jim for anybody looking to have a fun affair.
