Would recommend!

Collins Entertainment was fantastic to work with for our wedding! They were very organized, detail-oriented, and committed to making sure everything ran smoothly. We appreciated being able to use their online portal to plan out our day.

DJ Houston kept everyone on the dancefloor all night with perfect music selections and went above and beyond to capture audio of speeches from the microphones so we could relive those moments.

Would recommend!

Working with Collins Entertainment was fantastic start to finish! Jim answered all our questions and offered several creative ideas we hadn’t considered. DJ Jared was awesome too, communicated well with us throughout the night and quick to adapt to changes in the schedule. Great at reading the room to keep the guests dancing. Would recommend!

Music triggers so many memories and emotions. If you stop and think about it, I bet when you hear a song from your past, there is a memory associated with it. Maybe a song that reminds you or a friend, family member, or time in your life? How about a song that comes to mind that was playing in the background when you first met your fiancé, on your first date, or during your first kiss? There’s nothing better than being able to combine music with a celebration of two people and create moments that result in emotional reactions.

My top songs right now: “Good 4 U” by Olivia Rodrigo, “Levitating” by Dua Lipa (feat. DaBaby), “Roses”- Imanbek Remix by SAINt JHN & Imanbek, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston, “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson.

Born and raised in the Bronx, I grew up in a city that was considered the mecca of music and the birthplace of the original DJ. I was inspired to begin Djing in the summer of 1993 where I was inspired by such legendary acts as Grandmaster Flash, DJ Kool Herc and Jam Master Jay.

From a young age, I had the gift of creating great music. I studied for years playing several instruments including piano, guitar, bass and drums. Even though I continued playing music for many years, the passion of Djing was always there.

When I’m not performing, I spend all of my time with my beautiful wife and 3 children. I specialize in entertainment for events and also promoting my radio shows. Entertaining people is my passion. I love what I do! I have developed a unique universal sound where I can play and enjoy any type of music from any genre of music. I am very energetic, funny and charismatic while maintaining a great state of professionalism like no other can. So with that being said, let’s create the greatest party in history together!

Here are some of the songs that I currently play on my playlist before doing events: “Party Rock Anthem,” by LMFAO and Lauren Bennett, “Shake It Off,” by Taylor Swift, “Yeah!” By Usher, Lil Jon and Ludacris, “Moves Like Jagger,” by Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, “Jump Around,” by House of Pain,” “Riptide,” by Vance Joy, “Mambo No. 5,” by Lou Bega.

What really made me realize music was for me was when I watched movies like “The Matrix” “Oblivion” “Tron Legacy”and countless other movies that made me realize I understood how much emotion and power music holds. Music has the power to move you in many ways and create those movie moments everyone enjoys.Whether its creating a moving and powerful scene or attaching itself to core memories and bringing you right back to that time period when you listen to the same song years later.

I grew up singing and playing multiple in churches. Playing upright bass in orchestra and electric bass in jazz band. Playing in metal bands in high school and college. Now currently today I am an audio engineer, songwriter, producer and composer.

Music has always been my first love and the language I speak best. I enjoy sharing moments with others through music and creating memories that people will not forget.

Songs I listen to on my way to events: “Can I Call You Tonight?” by Dayglow, “Paradise” by Jaeger & Ricky Ducati, “Space Age Love Song” by Flock of Seagulls, “Blue Monday” by New Order, “Wish You Well” by Save Signal and Becky Hill, and “Take Me Somewhere” by DLMT–

Fantastic DJ!

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.
