About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Our DJs are among the most highly recognized and referred in the industry. Although our DJs know how to bring the party, we all share the same unobtrusive philosophy and style - our DJs don't pass out props, play games, teach line dances, or talk excessively over the music. We all speak in a clear, confident speaking tone on the microphone when making announcements, but never take the spotlight away from our clients and guests. Murray Hill Talent DJs consistently receive the highest praise on sites such as Weddingwire, Yelp!, TheKnot & Google. Whether you’re wedding is in Boston, Cape Cod, Newport, RI, Maine, or anywhere else in New England, we’ve got you covered.

Above & beyond!

Hiring Murray Hill talent (Flipside band) for our wedding day on 9/30/21 was easily one of the best decisions we made. I don’t even know where to begin! My husband is from a musical family, and had a very clear vision for what we wanted on our day. He worked with Corin to plan a surprise serenade in which the band learned our song and played alongside him. They also allowed my brother in law and groomsman to play/sing our first dance song. And not to mention they absolutely NAILED the playlist, fed off the crowd, and put on an incredible show that we and our guests are still raving about. We are so grateful to Flipside and especially Corin, who worked closely with us every step of the way despite the busiest wedding season they have ever had. We hope to find a reason to hire Flipside again in the future. Look no further and book them now - you will not regret it!!!

The Murray Hill Team knocked it out of the park!

Booking was a breeze. The admin team had great communication and an easy to use questionnaire to help determine our music preferences.

The band "Twilight" expertly handled the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour. It was perfect, they provided the ambiance we were looking for without calling too much attention.

Put your hands up for DJ Ben Ockert! He DJ'd the reception like an old pro. He took the time to schedule a call before the event and get a feel for our music tastes. He put together a kick ass set and kept the dancefloor full throughout. Awesome job accommodating some obscure requests on the fly. This guy is not just playing a list of songs you give him, he really performed and mixed an awesome set. Next time we host an event, Ben will be there.

Thank you for a great night! We will never forget it!

All our friends wanted to hire these guys!

Dave was our DJ and he was amazing! Listened to everything we wanted, had such good transitions, and kept the dance floor full all night. Rob was our A/V guy, very professional and helped us with the complicated moving parts. Multiple friends said they wanted to hire our DJ after the wedding!

Murray Hill Talent is amazing! If you are looking for a phenomenal professional band that will keep things energized, I highly recommend Flipside. I've been fortunate to work with them at weddings and the couples have been pleased every time. They're willing to travel!

Nancy Gould Photography Nancy Gould Photography Wedding Photographers

I have worked with both the DJ's and the bands from Murray Hill many times over the years, and they have all been great. The DJ's are fun and accommodating to the guests, without ever being too "talky" or cheesy. The bands have great energy, and are great for ceremony & cocktail music as well. My clients have always been happy with them, and the dance floor has always been full!
