    PJ is Incredible and really reads the crowd phenomenally

    Our experience with PJ was amazing. He was so easy to work with. My husband and I are both career firefighters so our schedule is extremely hectic. PJ kept us on track, he checked in on us and made sure we didn't miss a thing! Absolutely above and beyond. He has a form you fill out prior to your last meeting with him (which seems like a bunch of random questions) and based on your answers he gets exactly what your vibe is and how to deliver it flawlessly. We had a big wedding party, kids, fireman and an age range from 2 - 90 literally. Every single person was dancing and having an amazing time! He even nailed a part of a kid song for my nephews and nieces to walk into to. My father also wanted to surprise me with our first dance song. PJ worked with my father and never slipped on the surprise, it was amazing! I also wanted to surprise my mother and husband with my entrance song into the ceremony. The volume and timing was literally breathtaking. He played everything we wanted took requests and didnt play anything on the do not play list! The lighting the slideshow of pictures and the "dancing on clouds" was stunning. Huge thank you to PJ and whenever we have another milestone and need a DJ he will certainly be our guy!

    No Need To Look Elsewhere

    PJ and his team were amazing. We couldn’t be happier with him as our dj. From our first meeting PJ made us feel important and special. We are both huge music fans and had many requests not heard in your typical wedding. PJ had/found them all. He even came up with such incredible music for our ceremony even those off the boat Irish were impressed with his selection of traditional and newer instrumentals.
    He made his lighting into the Irish tri color for us as well. His attention to detail and desire to think outside the box for us knowing thats what we like was incredible. He kept people dancing and engaged all night long. We have received several calls regarding his friendliness and abilities as a dj. My mother is elderly and not in the best of health, shortly into our dance I needed to get her off the dance floor. With a simple hand motion PJ noticed my need and seamlessly segued out of the song and into the next. Amazing music, fantastic attention to detail, time spent making the night special. He did so much for us. Look no further, PJ is the man for your event. I can’t recommend him strongly enough

    Awesome!!!

    PJ and his guys were so awesome at our wedding last Saturday. People kept complimenting about the music and saying how he had such great interaction with everyone. The music was so on point I couldn’t stop dancing! Even my now husband (who normally is a wallflower) danced and did the Cupid shuffle lol! The monogram and up lighting was such a special touch that brought a very big smile to my face. Not to mention the photo booth that had EVERYONE laughing and having a good time, we love the scrapbook! I would highly recommend Essential Sounds Entertainment to everyone who wants to have a good time. Thank you PJ and your crew for making our wedding day more fun and special than we could’ve ever imagined!
