Total Events is a class act! From the day we met with Jay, we knew immediately his company had the knowledge and experience to get the crowd on their feet and keep the party dancing! We spoke with Jay and Matt our DJ a couple of times before the wedding to go through all the details and discuss the different genres of music we wanted to appeal to all the guests. Matt provided the perfect sound track for our special day, we couldn’t have been happier! These guys are funny, entertaining and extremely professional. Devin and Lexi ran the photo tower for our event. It was a huge hit, they brought along many props and all the photos in the album made for a fun guest book keepsake! We had an awesome experience with Total Events and you will too!

Stop wondering if Total Events is any good...They are the best!!! From first inquiring to after wedding is over, Total Events, Jay Raven and Dj Derek make it incredibly easy to plan your wedding without issues. Jay was always quick to respond to any questions we may have had and after talking to him a couple of times he put Dj Derek on as our Dj. I can not say enough about how great Dj Derek is, He showed up early, set up quickly and was very professional. The up lighting was great, made the room change colors and some cool pictures. The music was incredible. Everyone from my 80 year old father to my 20 year old niece commented on how great the music was. Dj Derek is amazing at playing music that everyone wants to hear, something I didn't think was possible. But he pulled it off with ease. Dj Derek went beyond being just a Dj with constantly checking with us to see if everything was going ok or if we needed anything. I could go on and on but just save yourself the time and stop looking for a Dj, up lighting or photo booth, just go to and book with Jay and Dj Derek now before someone else gets your date. You won't be disappointed!

Jay was great to work with. From the initial contact he was always quick to reply and very helpful. We do not live in CT, but that was never a problem. Jay made it easy to discuss our event over the phone. Their website made it easy to select music we wanted in the months leading up to our wedding. On the day of the wedding Matt did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor! Easy to work with, responsive, reasonably priced - a total win.
