Professional and fun! All around amazing audio/visual company. Highly recommend.
We were extremely impressed by Vive entertainment for our wedding. The location was at the Ritz-Carlton, and included indoor and outdoor audio/visual needs. Peter was knowledgable, prepared, and a phenomenal MC. He is an amazing mix of professionalism, while still adding so much excitement to the event. We are so pleased with his company and highly recommend him to anyone in need of audio/visual services. He truly made memories for us that we will treasure forever.Sent on 07/17/2019

Peter was a fantastic dj at our wedding! Executed the ceremony music and mics flawlessly, announced the grand entrance perfectly, and of course played an absolutely awesome set that kept our dancing going for almost 3 hours!! Peter is the best. Thank you so much!!Sent on 10/03/2018

Amazing DJ who did an awesome job hosting/M.C.ing our wedding
Peter is nothing short of the consummate professional. Prior to the wedding, Peter met and conferred with us to better understand our preferences for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Peter was able to mix songs, including lengthening or shortening songs (i.e. for the processional or our first dance), so as to accommodate our needs and desires. Peter offered a packet of music recommendations which also guided our decisions and lessened the burden of surfing the web for popular songs to play. Peter also adeptly used the music to set the tone of the event; he elevated moments by using high energy music and as well as masterfully used the music to lull the audience to appropriate silence preceding speeches (notably we had a guest count of 275).Sent on 11/18/2018
For the open dance floor segment (end of the evening fun), Peter played a perfect variety of high-energy dance tracks for the young crowd, and also peppered in slow songs that compelled the older generations to join the group on the dance floor. Peter played the type of music we wanted, and respectfully avoided songs that we expressed we did not want played.
Peter also made for an incredible MC, and provided spectacular introductions for the collective bridal party, not only for the grand entrances, but also for their respective speeches. Lastly Peter has a wonderful disposition; he was easy to get along with, was accommodating, reliable, and returned messages (email or phone) promptly (which is important amidst wedding craze); he assisted with last minute changes, and was an integral member of our wedding crew, and most certainly elevated our wedding experience!
Ultimately, we are extremely happy that we hired Peter. Our wedding was better because Peter was our DJ. We highly recommend him for your wedding and/or any event you may have.

I've referred and worked with Peter for over 15 years. He did my wedding and that's a lot to say considering I've worked with 600+ other DJ's over my 26 year career. Your guests will love his professionalism and I believe he speaks a few languages as well.
If I am booked, hire Peter.;) He's a great DJ and all around great guy. Peter brings a fun personality, a good music selection, a strong MC presence, and high quality equipment to every event I have seen him perform at.
Peter was awesome! I would highly recommend him as your DJ for your wedding. He does a great job keeping the party going. My clients were very happy with his music selections. He is a true professional and so easy to work with. I cant say enough good things about him and I hope to work him again soon!
