Encore Events

Gosh.. where do I even start. I just had the absolute pleasure of working with the BEST DJ business I could’ve EVER asked for: Encore Events, using them at my wedding! From day #1: emailing them, doing the virtual open house to see the each DJ work their magic, emailing them who I wanted as my DJ, to the online “portfolio”, phone calls checking in, zoom meetings, all the way to the actual wedding day.. has just been an incredible journey & made my wedding day one to remember! Not only is that just SOME of the things I wanted to highlight.. but throughout my wedding they were making sure my husband and I had food, drinks, pulled it out chairs for us to sit, kept checking in making sure everything’s good, or if we needed anything etc. they absolutely excelled my expectations, and I can’t say enough about how phenomenal they did. Now I want to highlight who I used.. I wanted to mention Encore as a whole as they have 10+ DJ’s and are an amazing business; but HUGE shout out to Rich Cranston and Andre Powell, you guys killed it and I couldn’t stop saying how much I’ve appreciated you both and everything you’ve done for us, thank you so much and so honored to have you both at our wedding! My venue didn’t hesitate..right from the very start they said “hands down going to be on our recommendations list”. Every single person at the wedding noticed how flawless, organized, personable, caring, fun and professional Encore was.. hands down my favorite vendor, and will 100% be recommending to everyone. Thank you for being you, and making my wedding day come true! 🤍

Blessed with the Best!

Choosing to hire Encore to be a part of our wedding day was the best decision. Encore was a vendor I never once worried about. From the very beginning, their communication was timely and they were invested. Rich took a lot of time in our first meeting to learn about us and our vision. We then loved the opportunity to select our DJ by attending a zoom that allowed you to listen to all of their djs and their style. We found this to be an added perk. From there, we decided to hire Mickey and thank goodness we did! Not only is he phenomenal at his job of being a DJ with smooth transitions and keeping the dance floor alive, but he is a genuine person who checked in on us multiple times throughout our planning process as well as our wedding day. We received so many compliments of about our DJ and feel grateful that we had the experience we did. We also chose to use the sparkler fountains, which we loved. We also had a Photo Booth through encore and found Jordan to be wonderful to work with as she helped us choose what package would work best for us. The Photo Booth was a highlight of the night for many and having these memories forever is something I will cherish. I will hands down be recommending encore and referring anyone looking for a DJ. We were truly blessed with the best!

Best. Dj. Ever.

Ray Tiano was our wedding DJ, and he was absolutely PHENOMENAL. We had a Halloween wedding, and he happened to have some themed playlists from events past... it was just great working with someone who was as enthused about our wedding theme as we were. He just GOT US in a way that really impressed us and got us extra hyped for the big day. Then, come the wedding, Ray was very kind and attentive. Throughout the night, he checked in on us to ask how things were going, how we were doing, if we wanted a vibe change, etc. He was very personable and knowledgeable, and a talented emcee who hit all the right marks, flawlessly cued the song selections chose for special moments... And then the party started, and he blew the roof off. Our photographer, who was in from out of town and has shot hundreds of weddings, made a point to tell us how awesome Ray was. She said, "I told him if he worked in my state, I would recommend him to everyone. One of the best wedding DJs I've ever seen." He really kept the party alive all night. The dance floor got more crowded as the night went on, rather than less. Multiple people came up to us late in the evening to say goodbye, only for Ray to spin a new track that made our guests go, "Nevermind, staying for this one," and then hanging around until the end of the night. Encore was also incredibly organized and responsive to questions, with their periodic automated emails, tips, and reminders. One of the best, easiest wedding decisions we made. Thank you for making our wedding a night everyone will remember!
