Jimmy was amazing. His live music that accompanied the ceremony was fantastic and enhanced the experience. Throughout the reception, Jimmy had a great selection of music that stimulated many to be on the dance floor as well as great listening during the meal. Highly recommend Jimmy Lutz. Great value for the cost and much more in tune than other entertainment companies that were interviewed.Sent on 10/18/2019

Small wedding, big party!
This is the third wedding Jimmy has done for our family (with the fourth upcoming in September) and, once again, Jimmy rocked it. My wedding was planned quickly and was a small, more intimate event.Sent on 12/27/2019
First, he provided music for the ceremony which went flawlessly. We didn't have a formal cocktail hour, but he played a lovely mix of easy listening from the end of the ceremony leading into dinner.
Because the venue was a was small and we had maybe 70 guests total, I was concerned that there wouldn't be a big dancing crowd. Although that's what I wanted, I knew that a realistic expectation would be that maybe a few people would get out there. WRONG! I was SO thrilled that Jimmy was able to work his magic and get everyone having an amazing time.
Jimmy is thorough, professional, organized, and incredibly knowledgeable. I owe much of the success and low level of stress to him on my wedding day. Thank you Lutz Entertainment!!

My husband and I are so glad that we chose to work with Jimmy! Though we weren't able to meet in person before the wedding day, I spoke with Jimmy on the phone before we hired him and he answered all of my questions, as well as recommended that we have a "listening date" where we spend time together selecting music for the wedding. This was such a sweet and important idea and helped us slow down a little during the busy planning stages.Sent on 10/11/2019
Prior to the day, we skyped with Jimmy and reviewed all of our song choices, what time to start the song on and what time to end it, as well as described our music tastes to him. Jimmy was very open to our suggestions, and got a good sense of our eclectic taste very quickly. He was open to downloading music that he did not already have, and incorporated all of the songs we requested. When a song request came in that he was not sure that I would approve (I had asked for no slow songs but someone requested Sinatra), he checked with me before playing it and it turned out to be a big hit! He read the room and kept people dancing all night.
One of the things that Jimmy said during our first conversation that really sold me was that he "lets the music speak for itself." He worked with my cousin who emcee'd the wedding, and was willing to make announcements, but was very much in the background, letting the music take center stage. As a music lover, I really appreciate this and think that he did his job perfectly.
We love working with Jim. He is genuine and he does amazing work. His personality will win you over instantly!!! Amazing singer/guitar player...
Jimmy has been nothing short of fabulous to work with! I am a wedding photographer, and have worked with countless DJ's. Something that has always stood out working with Jimmy is that he is a musician. He loves what he does and the couples he works for, and that translates onto every dance floor. One of Jimmy's greatest talents is knowing how to use time. He doesn't always fill a lull in dancing activity with crazy music if the mood doesn't allow for it. He builds up to those moments strategically, and reads how his crowd is feeling. So when the crowd is moving they're really moving!! They feel the music he plays! It's refreshing to work with a DJ who knows how to respond to people's needs.
We have had the pleasure of working with Lutz Entertainment many times. Jimmy Lutz is fantastic DJ and we would highly recommend using his services. He never makes the party about him. It is always about the bride and groom and their guests, which is really important to some people. On top of him showing the bride and groom a good time, he is so easy to work with. When we need to coordinate timing for the night, he is always ready pen in hand to go through everything. If timing goes astray, he goes with it. We really love working with Lutz Entertainment!
