    Spectacular Job!

    Rico, Joel, and Edwin by far are the most professional vendors I've worked with. I just recently had to coordinate our organization's first virutal major fundraising event. The crew did their homework and definitely made my first virtual experience a pleasant one. I continue to use their service for our organization's fundraising events, because of theirpassion and committment of producing a quality and memorable event year after year.

    Exceptional MC

    So pleased to have had Rico as my DJ/MC. He was a pleasure to work with, he is very organized, in downloading the music you want to be played at your wedding. He’s an excellent MC.

    Amazing to say the least

    We just hired Rico and his crew for our wedding this past weekend, 9/19/21 at Villa Barone Hilltop Manor. Everything from our first meeting to wedding day was amazing! Rico has a website that makes music planning so easy! He has prepopulated example songs and the option for any song you find on YouTube. The way his website is configured it leaves no room for questions or missing pieces! The whole process of song selection was smooth from what song you want walking down the aisle to what song you want to enter your venue to.
    Now on to Rico himself.... he is everything you want in a DJ/ vendor. He walks you through from beginning to end, leaves no questions unanswered and legit makes you feel like the most important person on your big day. He hypes up the crowd hypes up the bride and groom and creates a party atmosphere! Another perk of using Rico Entertainment is they also have options for many different photo booths. One stop shop! They set up and break it down in the blink of an eye and bring props to make the pictures fun! We also opted for something called the dancing cloud. Which is during your first dance as bride and groom. It feels like it is just you two dancing on a fluffy cloud. From beginning to end him and his team did exactly what they said they were going to. They are amazing and did not disappoint. The vibe is unmatched and the energy is amazing. Book him and you won't regret! Rico thank you for the amazing time it was priceless!
