    Collins entertainment is the best!

    Collins Entertainment was the absolute BEST! They were so thorough and helped organize my whole day! The day of they were so flexible with timing and everyone had so much fun dancing to the music! I would not use anyone else for events in the future!

    Collins Entertainment's reply:

    Hey, Heather and David! Your wedding was such a blast at The Farmington Country Club and your first dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” was beautiful!

    Highly recommended DJ Elio

    DJ Elio gave us good vibes from our very first encounter. He’s professional, knowledgeable, eager to please, and most importantly- he has great taste in music. We got married outdoors, at my parents residence. We had our ceremony across the street in an open field with no power. The sound was perfect. Music was loud and the ceremony was mic-ed appropriately. Our original plan was to have cocktail hour, un-tented, in the front yard, and a tented reception in the back yard. On our day, it began to drizzle during cocktail hour. DJ Elio didn’t skip a beat. Half of our guests remained in the front yard and the second half stood under our “welcome” tent in the backyard. He essentially DJ’d two separate cocktail hours. That level of accommodation and professionalism goes unmatched.

    We met with DJ Elio months prior and then one week before our wedding day. Both meetings were productive. He has a way of making you feel comfortable and confident in his skills. Our taste in music is unique and due to that we put all of our trust in him to keep the dance floor full. He exceeded expectations. We gave him “must plays” that he creatively incorporated throughout the night. The dance floor was full the entire night. His set up was aesthetically pleasing and his lighting was awesome.

    The exceptional factor about DJ Elio is that he doesn’t make a playlist. He took our taste in music and mixed that with his amazing ability to read the room.

    What solidified how great DJ Elio is for me, was a conversation I had during the reception with a long term friend of mine. She said “this playlist has your name written all over it!” The truth is… we gave DJ Elio very little direction. But through our meetings, he took the time to really get to know us and our music taste and found a way to make our personalities shine through while pleasing our guests at the same time. And that is PRICELESS!

Fantastic DJ!

Eva's Weddings Eva's Weddings Wedding Officiants

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.
