Best DJ in CT!!

Rico was the DJ for our wedding over Labor Day weekend and it was phenomenal! He was the DJ at a family member’s wedding and came highly recommended. From the day we chatted with Rico via zoom we knew he was the DJ for our special day. Rico was easy to work with, incredible responsive and very professional.
He provided ceremony music, music at cocktail hour and a special private dance before the reception. He let us customize the type of music we wanted played all night long and many guests mentioned how great his music selection was. Rico did a great job announcing the bridal party and setting up for toasts. One thing we really loved was his wireless set up during the ceremony, both the officiant and the groom had wireless microphones which was great. If you’re looking for top-notch entertainment you definitely want to book Rico!!

Perfect day! 8-7-22

Rico did a great job incorporating our ‘must play’ list and our vision of the reception with some additional tracks that kept the energy going with the right vibes all night. Rico was very attentive and responsive to our requests during the wedding. When we had some updates to one of the songs for the grand entrance he found the time to cut mix and play it exactly how we wanted. Idk where he found the time but he was BRILLIANT and our big reveal went on without a hitch, just like we envisioned it. As Hispanic Americans with some family and friends who only speak Spanish and others who only speak English, Rico really made both groups feel welcomed and entertained.
He spoke well over the music and didn’t interrupt too often like some DJs do. He only spoke when necessary to keep the energy going and the micro events organized.
He was responsive during the planning stages and his software was user friendly and kept us on track. The Magic Mirror was also a huge hit! Can’t wait to see all the photobooth pics our guests took on the website. Rico also referred our officiant to us. Thank you Rico! Having moved to CT from NYC, we didn’t think we could find a DJ like you here. You exceeded our expectations.
