We will work with you directly from our first conversation, through your last dance while offering quality service with a personal touch to create the perfect soundtrack for your event. You can trust us to provide the appropriate mix of music based on your preferences and also handle all of your important announcements. Our belief is that the focus should be on you, not the DJ/MC. We are not the stars of the show. We care about your needs and wants above all else. Choosing a DJ/MC with too much ego can lead to huge issues on your big day. Friendly Entertainment DJ/MCs are not performers, we are collaborators. We also provide Officiating Services. After more than 30 years in the wedding industry, we know that getting to know each couple personally is the best way to make your big day as unique as the two of you. You will enjoy working with us because we make it easy, fun, and totally stress-free.

We have three simple goals:

I cannot say enough amazing things about Friendly Entertainment!
From the quick responses to my random middle of the night emails, to the simple and easy to figure out website where I could add and remove "must plays" and "do not plays" up until the week of the wedding, Frank and Simmone were the best choice I could have made and I am so happy to have found them!
The music never stopped flowing. The transitions between songs were smooth. They really caught my musical vibes and played everything I loved and nothing I didn't.
My guests danced all night long! It was even hard for me to get pulled away from the dance floor, and I'm not much of a dancer, so that is really saying something!

Thank you Frank & Simmone! I can't wait to use your service again, everything was perfect!

Frank was phenomenal. He and Simmone were always a pleasure to connect with during the planning process and extremely responsive. Their portal was not only helpful for music but also for mapping out timeline of events! I could not be happier with my experience. Frank matched the energy of every minute of my intimate brunch wedding. I was hesitant to book for such a small wedding, but I have zero regrets and would do it again. Thank you so much!

True Professionals!!

We had an exceptional experience with Frank and Simmone of Friendly Entertainment. From the start, they were a joy to work with. They were easy to contact, prompt in their responses, and excellent, precise communicators. I immediately could sense how professional they were, and my fears of finding a good wedding DJ evaporated. On the day, Frank seamlessly kept everyone on schedule, and the dance floor was NEVER empty! I forbid you to choose ANYONE except Frank for your wedding or social event!

Frank  Marsden
Frank Marsden
Owner - DJ/MC

Frank Marsden is his actual name. If your were expecting a lame and cheesy DJ name like almost everyone seems to have, sorry-not-sorry. Born, raised and still residing in Harford County, MD, he’s a real DJ & MC with one of the most unique industry experiences in the area. He completed his B.A. in Mass Communications at Towson University in 1993. Years later, he enjoyed teaching radio to Harford Community College students followed by a move to the beach for 6 years where he hosted a daily radio show in Ocean City, MD. Frank’s background in nightclubs, in addition to public appearances, and private events makes him one of the areas most experienced professionals. Unlike a majority of the Baltimore area DJs, this industry has always been his career and not something he does “on the side.” You’ll be hard pressed finding another DJ in the area that possesses this kind of unique experience. His style is low key and approachable and he will never steal the spotlight because it’s your day. No jokes, stories or plugs. His philosophy is that a truly great DJ, just for a moment, can make a whole room fall in love. He believes DJing is not about choosing a few tunes. It is about generating shared moods; it’s about understanding the feelings of a group of people and directing them to a better place. He also feels that in the hands of a master, songs create rituals of spiritual communion that can be the most powerful events in people’s lives. Frank started the business in 1989 and he has and will continue to be passionate and committed to Friendly Entertainment.

I have worked with Frank of Friendly Entertainment on a number of occasions. He is a lot of fun, very professional, & keeps the event running smoothly. :)

'Friendly Entertainment' is a fitting name for Frank's business. Frank and his wife are about the nicest people you could ever meet and super laid back. They're always on site early and ready to go with plenty of time to spare. Franks approach to DJ'ing is warm, welcoming, fun and never awkward. He knows how to get a crowd involved and engaged and does it at a professional level that is hard to match and in a way where it's never about him nor the focus ever on him. He keeps the focus on his clients, which is the way it should be. I'm often at weddings where the DJ is using equipment that is faulty or not up to snuff... imagine the wireless audio going in and out during a ceremony. It happens a lot. But Frank never has those kind of problems, which is a testament to the investment he makes in the equipment he utilizes. He can do simple or if you're into a light show and fog machines, he can do that too! Whatever you could want from a DJ at your wedding or event Frank can provide. Highly recommend.
