    Perfect experience from start to finish

    Jim was so warm and personable and really helped us figure out what we wanted and followed through with absolute perfection. I was very picky and wanted specific versions of songs and even wanted my intro timed to a specific part of a song and he pulled it off perfectly. He totally understood the vibe we wanted and carried that through the entire night. Everyone told me it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to. With all the stress of wedding planning it was so great not having to worry about the music because from the first conversation we had with Jim we were 100% confident in him. Very nice guy, professional, and he just gets it!

    Meg and Neil!

    Thanks so much for letting us be a part of such a magical day! I loved learning about how you met at the birthday party at Foxwoods and how later that led to hilltop proposal at Henry Park! Your first dance to Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love” was beautiful. All the best to you both!

    So GREAT to work with!

    Jim was referred to us by a family member and we are so thankful. He is so easy to work with, listed to everything we wanted and made the night as perfect as we could hope for. He created a beautiful room with uplighting, and was very accommodating to our various song requests throughout the evening. The photo booth was, as it always is, a huge hit. The fact that we got copies of everyone's photos is so exciting, and make for some fun thank you cards! He also gave GREAT ideas for songs, introduced us to some great artists and knew exactly what to play and when. Thank you to Jim and everyone at Collins Entertainment!

    Just the best

    Hiring Collins Entertainment was one of the absolute best decisions we made for the entire wedding. Our guests were happy and dancing all night long, the process could not have been easier, and Jim was very patient with us as a couple during the planning, especially when we needed to make changes to what we already planned on! So many people told us that our wedding was the best they had ever been to, and we attribute so much of that to Collins Entertainment!

    Carlene and Dan!

    So great getting to know you through the planning process and discuss our love for the band Queen! I love how you mentioned that you put a universal ban on The Black Eyed Peas! “Here Comes The Sun” was perfect for your processional song during the ceremony and you walked down the aisle. Jim

    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.
