    Perfect all around!

    We partnered with Flipside for my daughter’s wedding in Boston. Best decision we made! Corin was great to work with deciding the perfect music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception! He made it so easy and they were so professional and each band member was very talented . The reception was a blast with and everyone danced and had a great time all evening! I’d hire them again in a heartbeat.

    Wonderful experience!

    Murray Hill was among a short list of vendors recommended to us by our venue. We looked through their list of DJs and ended up meeting a couple, eventually deciding to go with Felix Herbst. Felix was amazing to work with, and we were so thrilled with how everything ended up. From our first meeting, it felt like he really listened to us and what we wanted (and importantly, what we didn't want) and his goal and priority was to make us happy. Other DJs we talked to were so focused on the party, but we wanted a more laid-back tone and Felix totally got that. From the violin played for the processional, to the music during the cocktail hour and reception, and including the dancing portion, the music was always fun but never over the top or too loud. Felix was respectful of our request to keep the volume slightly lower, both so we could enjoy talking to our guests and also to accommodate some guests with sensory issues. He did the perfect amount of emceeing, keeping guests aware of what was going on and guiding the party along, but never felt like he took over or was trying to be the center of the party. He made us different versions of our first dance song to choose from, worked with us to create the perfect cut of our entrance song, and was always so responsive and easy to work with. He even checked in with us a few times during the wedding to make sure we were happy and ask if we wanted to hear anything specific. We absolutely loved working with him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic DJ!

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!
