Best dj company ever
Words can't explain how lucky we were to have Total Events run DJ on our event! Jay is an absolute pleasure to work with and the communication is superb. Jay always comes with enthusiasm and caters to the specific event you're trying to have. He works with you on every detail and provides amazing suggestions to enhance your event based on his experience in the industry. We had to change our venue due to Covid and he was quick to accommodate with complete understanding and flexibility. Matt, our DJ the day of the event, was also a pleasure to work with. He followed the schedule and even reminded us of what it was! From the ceremony music to the wedding party entrance, to the first dance, dancefloor and everything under the sun, he was there to keep the party alive and having the best time. We could not have pulled off our event without Jay and Matt. The execution was flawless and we absolutely recommend hiring Total Events as your DJ for ANY event you might be considering. This company is experienced, professional, personable and made us feel like family. BOOK TOTAL EVENTS CT!!!!Sent on 11/01/2020
Total Events's reply:Brittany and Alex, you're making us BLUSH lol. It was such a great experience working with you both. From long distance, or face to face (not this year) it was a pleasure connecting with you two and delivering your never forget moment!

Best DJ compay despite the chaotic times!
We absolutely loved working with Jay and his crew! We ended up booking Matt for our small backyard ceremony and everyone had nothing but great things to say about him! He was calm as a cucumber despite all the chaos of a backyard wedding and made the perfect mix of music for us. We can't wait to have them back for our larger wedding in summer of 2021!Sent on 10/28/2020
Total Events's reply:We will be ready for the BIG PARTY next year Jess, in the meantime it was so beautiful to handle your intimate family affair as well. Soon enough, we'll be celebrating again. All the best to you both!

Best experience ever!
From the very first phone call down to the very last email, which was two days before our wedding, Total Events was top notch! Jay Raven is completely laid back but at the same time totally professional. He matched us with our DJ Matt after just that first phone call and he completely nailed it! Matt was amazing!!! He showed up early just to make sure everything was just right and with how stressed I was because I was running late, he was a complete Godsend! They go over every single detail to make sure that you have the perfect day and it paid off! It was perfect! They throw one hell of a party and you will NOT be disappointed!!!Sent on 05/19/2021
Total Events's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words and sharing your experience with Total Events Tisha! A great time was had by all, including the staff!
