We saw Dave at our friend’s wedding over the summer and we were impressed how into the event he was. He was genuinely happy to be at the event and brought so much energy to the room, it was contagious. We got his card at the end of the night and kept him in mind when we were planning our wedding.
Our wedding was planned to be just a dinner party with 7 courses. We wanted a DJ to not only play music during the courses but also make the down time between courses more fun. From our first conversation with Dave, we knew we had our man. He knew exactly what we were trying to do and loved it. We went through all the songs we thought would be correct for the vibe and he built off that. The main thing we stressed to him was to feel out the room and play what the room wanted to hear. Once the dinner started, he played slower music to get people into the dinner feel then once the drinks started to flow, he played more and more upbeat songs (but didn’t force it). What started off as a dinner party became a full blown dance party.
At the event he was professional, on time, had a great setup and knew what to do and when. We had several guests tell us the DJ was perfect and they asked where we found him. I cannot thank Dave enough for his enthusiasm, professionalism and skill as a DJ. We would highly recommend him for any event.
Alexa & Patrick: Thank you so much!! You two were absolutely wonderful to speak to and plan your special day with. Together you inspire others with your happy, uplifting energy and friendly personalities.
Planning and executing a wedding such as yours is always a bit of a challenge, and I love that. It feels great to try something different and make it a successful and enjoyable experience for everyone.
I loved how the entire night was planned and coordinated. You have a loving and supportive groups of friends and family. Thank you so much for having me, and thank you for writing a review. It was an honor to be there. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Rielly! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day : )
Dave was awesome to work with! He made everything great for us from day 1. He is very passionate about what he does and made our day stress free. We received so many compliments from our family and friends about how great he was and how nice and friendly he is. We would highly recommend him for any venue! Thanks Dave! Lisa and Ian
Lisa & Ian: Thank you so much! You two are absolutely wonderful. You had one of the most beautiful ceremonies I've seen in all of the five years I've had the opportunity to DJ weddings for a living. It was so beautiful to witness. Both your priest and rabbi created such an excellent experience for all of us. It was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of your very special day. You have so much love and support from all of your friends and family. I know that you both will succeed in whatever life throws at you, because you are friendly, peaceful, and kind to others. You had an awesome selection of music, and it was great to see everyone dancing, singing, and having a good time! I wish you two peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Aroeste! I hope you enjoy every last minute of your honeymoon vacation together.
Dave is super professional and is genuinely a great guy. We could feel how much he really cares about his clients and the music and will go out of his way to make your wedding as perfect as he can make it. He nailed all the little details about how and when we needed certain songs to be played during our reception.
Since we had a daytime wedding, we didn't think we wanted to dance and also didn't think our guests would spend much time on the dance floor. We were so wrong! We were out on the dance floor with our guests having a great time. We really have to credit Dave for that! He knows how to read a crowd and play what's appropriate in the moment. We couldn't recommend Afino Entertainment enough!
DJ AFINO was amazing! I don't think we could have hired a better DJ. Dave was easy to work with, incredibly personable, played every song we requested, and also provided us with some great ideas that we wound up incorporating. He was very organized and handled all the music from the ceremony through the very end of the reception. He had everyone on the dance floor throughout the night; we even had a mini mosh pit at the groom's request. I would highly recommend him for any upcoming events. His quality of work is an outstanding value.
Justine & Nathan: Thank you so much! You two were incredible. All of the planning and preparation was a great success. It was so nice to see you after so many years. We met at the very first job I ever had at age 15 at Atlanta Bread Company in Toms River. What a small world! It was so nice to see you again, and I'm so happy for the two of you. Your friends and family showed a tremendous amount of love and support. I was glad to see them all dancing, singing, and having a great time together celebrating your marriage this past weekend. It was an honor for Stephanie and I to be there, and an honor to have your review! We wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Dean! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day.
From the first time we spoke to Dave, you can immediately tell this wasn't just a "job" for him, it's his passion. We immediately knew he would be a good fit. He takes what he does very serious and wants you to have an amazing experience. He takes the time to understand your vision, musical preferences and program details. He is very knowledgeable and makes suggestions based on his experiences.
He has an amazing personality, punctual, and very organized. He is very detailed oriented and didn't miss a beat throughout our wedding. He even stepped in to help us with the reception entrance line up (something he didn't have to do) and im glad he did! He saw an opportunity that could have caused stress on us and was quick to suggest something to make sure everything continues to run smooth. He made sure we stuck to our timeline and made all necessary announcements. He read the crowd and played the right music to keep the dancing going.
He does this cool thing at the end by gathering everyone on the floor to take a group photo, I thought that was amazing!
Also suggesting a bride and groom last dance was a perfect close out to our wedding day.
He was definitely worth the investment. We are strong believers in you get what you pay for and what we received was priceless!
Yolanda & Johnathan: Thank you so much! You two had the most beautiful wedding at the Wind Watch Golf & Country Club. We were blessed with perfect weather. It looked like it might rain, and in fact I think it did a little at the start of the day, but once I got to the location, the sun came out, and we were able to have your ceremony outside overlooking the golf course and the rest of the beautiful landscape. You and your family were so friendly, polite, and fun to be around. There was a beautiful, happy energy throughout the night that comforted me in knowing that the experience was going to be wonderful. You two did such a great job preparing and planning every little detail. The flowers were gorgeous, the food was excellent, and all of your guests enjoyed the music you selected. It was an honor to be there! Thank you for taking the time to write this review, and thank you for having me be a part of your very special day. I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Jenkins!
From the very first phone call with Dave we knew that we didn't have to look any further for a DJ and had found the one! Dave is extremely passionate about what he does and that is very clear when you speak with him. He is extremely detailed and always willing to give you feedback to make sure everything on the big day goes smoothly. He accommodated all of our requests and everything played out super smoothly on the big day. My family is Brazilian and he did a great job incorporating the Brazilian songs into all parts of the wedding and we had a good mix of both cultures - it was truly incredible! He coordinated with the venue very well, all of our guests loved him and his energy is truly amazing! I had some friends that are getting married next year ask for his information and I didn't hesitate one bit! I'd recommend Afino Entertainment to anyone! My husband and I were so so happy and we couldn't thank Dave enough for everything and for giving us such a memorable day
Caroline & Jared: Thank you so much!! You two had the most incredible wedding! The positive energy and love I experienced is something I only get to witness a handful of times each year. You two really went above and beyond to prepare and plan for such a beautiful day. You paid attention to every little detail. The ballroom at The Elan looked absolutely gorgeous with all of the decorations and flowers! I can't wait to see your photos. Everything from the Ceremony, to the end of the night, was magical. Both of you have friends and family that support you and love you very much. Thank you for being so polite, friendly, and kind to us. It was such an honor to be there. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. I wish you nothing but the best. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Zuckerman! Thank you for your review, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day!
Afino Entertainment is the best! My wedding was just this past Saturday, August 26, 2017 at Nanina's in the Park in Belleville, NJ. Dave DJ'd my entire wedding from the ceremony through the cocktail hour and reception. Dave was nothing but exceptional. His professionalism, attentiveness, kindness and experience are extremely notable. I highly recommend this outstanding company to anyone.
Lisa & Frank: Thank you so much! All the credit goes to you. You communicated with me for hours about what you wanted, and allowed me to get to know you on a personal level. You put so much thought and attention into every detail. Nanina's In The Park is a breath-taking location. You chose an absolutely beautiful venue. All of your music selections were fantastic. You and Frank were kind, loving, and friendly to everyone, including myself. We had a beautiful outdoor Ceremony, followed by a romantic list of Cocktail Hour music, and kicked off the night with an exciting Grand Introduction, into your First Dance on a sea of clouds using the Dry Ice Fog Machine. Everything was excellent! I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Angeli! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.
working with dave was so easy and laid back we could not have asked for a better experience. Our wedding music from start to finish was great! I honestly do not think I stopped dancing (: Dave was very accommodating considering our wedding was all the way in Philadelphia but he was happy to be there even with a long drive to and from the venue! I highly recommend dave for your DJ needs for any event.
Michelle & Justin: Thank you so much! You two had the most beautiful wedding. Union Trust is a gorgeous venue! You selected the perfect music for your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. You two were the life of the party, keeping everyone in a good mood, interacting with your friends and family, and showing expressions of gratitude and love throughout the night. It was such an honor to be there. We had such a great time, and it's all thanks to you. You prepared and planned for an unforgettable experience. Everything was excellent. Thank you so much for having us, and thank you for writing a review. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Rhoads! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day!
AFINO entertainment is the absolute best! From the moment we connected, he was professional and knowledge. We hired afino entertainment a year and a half before our wedding date and I couldn't be more happier. Every time I reached out Dave responded right away and made sure our day was perfect. I asked him to put together a dance mix for my father daughter dance, with in hours he emailed me the mix. His response time and customer service skills are exceptional. The dance floor was full of dancing the whole night. He was amazing! Thank you Dave for making my day perfect.
Kristen & Colin, thank you so much! You worked with me to organize and prepare such an incredible day. The day started with a beautiful ceremony at The Versailles Ballroom. You had a large, diverse, and delicious selection of cocktail hour food. I loved working with you to organize and play a separate song for each couple we introduced into the room. The choreographed dance you prepared with your dad was absolutely insane. That was the coolest thing I've seen in a long time! I was losing my mind watching that, and I'm so excited for you to get your video back so you can experience that again and share it with your friends and family that weren't able to be there. You two went above and beyond in planning a magnificent experience for both yourselves and your guests. It was such an honor to be there. I had so much fun, and it made me very happy to see you laughing, smiling, and dancing all night. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Lockwood! I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.
Dave was the most amazing DJ! He did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor and catering to both our Spanish guests and our Russian guests. Everyone had an amazing time, and it was very much because of Dave's wonderful and joyous personality. He really set the perfect mood for our wedding. Thank you again Dave!
Ana & Daniel, thank you so much! You two had the most beautiful wedding. You picked an absolutely gorgeous location, and the two of you both looked stunning. We had beautiful weather, and it was so nice to see all of your family and friends come to show their love and support for the both of you. There was such a wonderful, positive energy and happiness throughout the entire day. I'm excited to see your photos! Thank you so much for hiring both me and Stephanie to entertain your guests and capture the experience. It was an honor to be there. You helped me create the perfect playlist, and you made the entire process easy and enjoyable. Congratulations you two! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your very special day.
The process of picking a DJ was for us one of the things we worried the most about. We had been to a few weddings where the music took away from the night and our biggest fear was that the dance floor would be empty. Both our families are big dancers and wedding people so we knew that we had to pick the right DJ – and boy did we pick the right one! At our first in person meeting with Dave we knew he was the right choice. Dave was warm, inviting, friendly and extremely professional. As a gay couple we were very impressed by his openness and that he had same sex wedding paperwork, since on so many of our wedding papers we had Groom and Bride signature lines. In addition to this we never had to ask any of our questions since Dave consistently soothed our worries by just explaining his process and approach. We wanted a DJ that knew and loved his craft and didn’t just hit play on a playlist, but could read a room and weave music and styles together and Dave did all this masterfully. Afino’s professionalism and respect for the job is demonstrated by his very detailed pre-wedding questionnaire he has you do before you big day. It may seem like a lot, but it was very enjoyable for us both and really helped us think critically about the type of music and night we wanted. Dave gives you a lot of options for the night, but remember everything is customizable and he is very, very easy and open to work with. By the way, if you are thinking this questionnaire is a glorified playlist you are wrong – it is a guide and that was clear to us on the wedding day when Dave played music and songs we would have never thought of, but fit the mood perfectly and kept everyone raging. At our wedding day Dave truly brought everything together for an amazing and fun night. That may sound like a cliché that everyone says about their wedding, but in our case it was absolutely true. If you are here reading this – BOOK DAVE – DJ AFINO NOW! You will not regret it!
Anthony & Daniel: Wow. I'm speechless. Not many couples take the time to write such a lengthy review, and I can't be happier to sit here and read this (for the third time now lol). It melts my heart to know that you two enjoyed your day. I have to admit that you started off on the right foot by booking an absolutely gorgeous location at Snug Harbor in Staten Island. Everything you wrote in this review is exactly what I aim to do for every couple that books their wedding with me. The fact that you were able to see that, remember all of it, and write such a beautiful, detailed review shows me that you two will continue to experience nothing but the highest levels of success in your lives together. I really can't express how thankful I am for your feedback. It can be a real struggle in this industry trying to prove to people why they should hire you to help create one of the biggest days of their lives. Having reviews like this make my job enjoyable beyond imagination in being able to show others what they have to look forward to if they are willing to give me their trust. It was an honor to be there to witness your marriage and celebrate the occasion with you and your family. You have an incredibly supportive, loving, and talented group of friends and family! If I could go back in time and do it all over again, I'd enjoy every minute of it. Your energy and your love for one another is infectious. I hope that you continue to shine a bright light on others so long as the both of you live. Thank you so much, and congratulations! I wish you an eternity of peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.
By far the best experience of all the vendors we used on our wedding day. I was a little apprehensive at first because Dave's prices were so much more reasonable than the DJ who tries to sell you these elaborate packages with a huge staff of personnel. We've been to a few weddings this past year and I've got to say Dave is fully capable of providing the same or superior atmosphere as those who charge MUCH more. The service he provides leaves nothing to be desired. He walked us through everything before the wedding and made sure everything was as we wanted it. My wife and I enjoyed picking out the music on the website Dave provides (optional) and he stuck to what we wanted and totally embraced the vibe we were going for. I can't imagine why anyone pay 2 - 3 times what Dave charges for a McDJ when you could have someone who takes pride in offering a high quality service.
Erin & William, thank you so much! It means the world to me to hear you say that. I've even tried raising my prices a few times, but then I wasn't receiving any bookings.. no bookings = no work. So, they continue to be lower than what others charge, and you're right; I remain passionate, positive, energetic, and continue to deliver excellence, because that's what I want for the people that hire me. I want them to say, "Our wedding was perfect." You two had such a beautiful day. It was an honor to be there. I had so much fun, and I'm happy to know that you enjoyed the day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Grieco! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.
Dave went above and beyond for our wedding May 20th. We planned our wedding from San Diego, so distance was a struggle, but Dave made it seamless. We didn't even meet until the day of and I'm bummed because he was awesome! The uplighting was beautiful, he performed our pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour and long extended reception. We had an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and Dave used all of his wireless equipment. The crowd never stopped dancing and he read everyone's mood to keep the dance floor full. He even customized our first dance song, and managed to capture us completely. Music is a VERY important part of our lives and we're honored to say Dave was our wedding day DJ. If you're getting married in the tri-state area and haven't booked Dave, you're crazy. I already have friends booking him for Fall 2018! Thank you sooooooo much! ~ Matija and Joe
Joseph & Matija, thank you so much! I don't know where to begin. I'll never forget what an incredibly beautiful day we had. Let me start by saying that you chose an absolutely beautiful location to get married at and celebrate this special occasion with all of your friends and family. Your beach ceremony was breathtaking. It was a perfect day, and you two were blessed with the perfect weather. All of your friends and family were some of the nicest, friendliest, most supportive people I've met in my life. The amount of love and support you have is contagious and inspiring. Your selection of music was phenomenal. I could happily go back in time and enjoy your wedding all over again without hesitation. The love you have for one another is magical, and so is the story you share. I loved creating your custom cocktail hour mix, as well as your first dance mashup. The creativity and thought that you put into every little detail was worth every minute of the experience. I'm humbled, honored, and blessed to have been able to be a part of your very special day. The highlight of my night was witnessing Joe's mom look at him while he was performing his DJ set toward the end of the night, and watching her say to him, "Joe! You're F#&%ING killing it!" lolol That was both hilarious, and beautiful to witness. Seriously, that melted my heart. I'm so happy you decided to add uplighting around the room. That room looked absolutely stunning. It always makes a huge difference when it comes time to dance and celebrate the moment with one another, adding energy and excitement, through the use of intelligent lighting. I'm so happy for the both of you, and I wish you two peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. I'll never forget the both of you, nor your family and friends. I hope that I am able to come visit one day when I am granted the opportunity to move to California. Keep doing what you're doing. It's working well! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Tomasello! :]
Afino deserves 5 stars across the board! Dave is amazingly talented and was the icing on the cake at our wedding! He paid close attention to details, like pronouncing the bridal party names correctly to editing our songs as requested. He kept the party going all night and made sure our guests were up dancing and having a good time. He created a great atmosphere with both the music and the up-lighting... and not to mention dancing on the clouds for our first dance as husband and wife. We are so happy with Dave's professionalism and would recommend him to ANYONE!
Sam & Jacqueline: Thank you so much! Your wedding was unforgettable. You two went above and beyond to plan and prepare for a day that was exciting and inspiring for all of your guests to witness and be a part of. All of your family and friends were so polite, friendly and full of joy. It's a blessing to have seen their support and love for the both of you. You picked an absolutely gorgeous location at The Graycliff in Moonachie, NJ. John, the Maître D', is always such a pleasure to work with. Him and his staff truly care about putting together an unforgettable experience. You looked absolutely beautiful on your wedding day. Thank you for inviting me and Stephanie to be a part of your special day, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We'll never forget it. I wish you peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Koutsouris!
I've used many DJ'so but Dave is by far the best DJ I have ever used. We told him what kind of music we wanted and it wasn't easy but he pulled it off.
He played Oldies /Rock /Country / Outlaw Country /Spanish &Top 40 and blended everything BEAUTIFULLY , he had everyone dancing the whole evening.
He made our SPECIAL DAY THAT MUCH MORE SPECIAL. We plan on using AFFINO in the future.
Bill &Julie Manning
William & Julliza: Thank you so much! You had such a beautiful wedding. I especially loved the location you chose; outdoors behind La Adelita in Woodside, NY. The weather was perfect, and you both looked stunning. All of your guests were smiling, laughing and having a good time from the beginning to the end. It was wonderful to share the experience with both of you along with my girlfriend, Stephanie, who you chose to capture your day. Your photos are beautiful! Thank you so much for having us. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Manning!
DJ Afino was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Dave truly made our reception stand out from the rest. From cocktail hour to our last dance we had THE BEST TIME! Unlike other receptions ours was broken into 3 different song sets where our guests were able to get up and dance throughout the night and throughout our sit down dinner.Dave was energetic throughout the whole night, he even jumped on the dance floor and danced with us. We had a custom entrance that he helped us orchestrate it was just perfect! We also had a custom monogram which Dave placed perfectly in our ballroom. At the end of the night he helped our guests all get together on the dance floor for a group photo (his idea which we loved). He even made a hilight video of the day which is something we have never seen from a DJ. I wish we were getting married again this weekend so we could do it all again. Thank you DJ Afino for making our wedding rock! We love You! Love Tony & Kym Lezotte
Kym & Tony: Thank you so much! Let me start off by saying, I love the title of your review. You had such a beautiful day! It was such an honor to be there. If you ever want to get married again, be sure to send me an invitation. You put so much time and effort into planning and preparing a memorable experience for all of your guests. I was impressed and touched by every little detail: The seating chart that your friend created and drew by hand for you; The custom photo booth backdrop featuring both of the football teams that you support and love; A place for guests to leave a message of support and encouragement; Your beautiful wedding cake; The most wonderful banquet hall location featuring a fantastic staff and delicious food; An incredibly stunning wedding dress, and of course.. Tony was dressed to impress and the smile on his face was priceless. Your love for one another was felt throughout the room, and your love for your friends and family was clearly evident in all that you did to make sure that they had an inspiring moment to remember forever. You even picked an incredible photography team! I've worked with them once before in Eatontown. It's always a pleasure to speak with them. They express a true desire to do an excellent job. It was a day I'll never forget. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Lezotte!
My wedding was amazing and it's all thanks to DJ Afino!
Dave gave my guest the time of their life. At the end of the night they kept asking me, where did you find him? He was phenomenal. He kept the guests moving all night! He was very kind and knew how to keep everyone entertained. He even made sure the end of the wedding was amazing and even instilled a great way to include everyone. Which was a great hit!!
The booking process was seamless, easy as 1-2-3 and prior to the wedding event he walked me through the entire night which eased any stress I had about how the night would go. He had us fill out a format and took our music requests and built an awesome night based off of it.
He did not miss a beat throughout the night. He definitely is very professional and you can see he loves to entertain.
I would recommend using DJ Afino for any wedding or party need!
Brittany & Jason: Thank you so much! Your wedding was unforgettable. It was an honor to be there. I'm glad that you hired Stephanie to capture your day. We love working together. Your friends and family were full of energy, love and laughter. Your ceremony was beautiful. Hearing you both tear up during your vows was an indicator to me of how happy you two were that day. Your Grand Introductions were awesome. All of your guests were excited and enthusiastic. The energy was positive and uplifting all night. The Best Man got a little nervous, but he spoke from the heart! Your music selection was perfect, and the location you selected is one of my favorites. I've been there over 15 times now. They always do a wonderful job, and the food was delicious. It was an honor to be there to celebrate your special day with you and your family. Thank you so much for having both me and Stephanie there. I wish you peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Papa!
Dave was fantastic! He has so much energy and passion for what he does, and the crowd can feel it. He is responsive and thorough from initial contact to final review. Dave arrived early to set up and was prepared for anything (we went from an indoor ceremony to an outdoor February ceremony and he didn't miss a beat). We also loved the mini snapchat video Dave put together throughout the night and sent us a link to. Thank you Dave!
Bonnie & Gary: Thank you so much! Your wedding was absolutely incredible. It was my first time visiting The Tides Estate, and when I got there, I was blown away. What a magnificent place to celebrate such a beautiful moment of your life. You had the perfect weather for a Ceremony outside in February! It was cold and snowing just 2 weeks prior. It's moments like this that show how powerful true-love really is. I found out the following day that my great aunt Mary had passed away while I was at the wedding that night. It came as a surprise to all of us, and I couldn't help but remember how polite and accommodating your Maître D' was. Steven was an angel; professional from beginning to end. It was such a pleasure working with him, and it was truly a blessing to work with someone so polite and kind and for such an amazing couple while my Aunt watched from above. You two created a magical experience for all of your guests, and myself included. Thank you for all that you did. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the recap video also! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Vanvliet!
Dave was very professional from our first meeting straight through the event. He was responsive whenever I had questions. He did a fantastic job. He was punctual, and he kept the guests dancing and having a great time all night. We worked on the format for the night and everything worked out perfectly. It was such a relief that everything work out just as planned. When I needed music suggestions he was super helpful. I would absolutely use him again and I highly recommend his services. The venue actually asked for his information to recommend him to others just based on how great of a job he did at my wedding! A+++++
Crystal & Joseph: Thank you so much! Your wedding was amazing. I stand by what I said at the end of the night: your song selection was perfect! It's rare to be hired by someone who provides such an excellent selection of music. I barely had to alter your list. You could be a DJ! That was my 3rd New Year's Eve wedding in a row, and it was so incredibly fun. I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else. All of your friends and family were wonderful. The location you chose was beautiful, and the food was delicious. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I hope that you both enjoy your honeymoon vacation this spring, and I wish you both peace, love, happiness and continued success! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Chiurazzi, and Happy New Year!
We can't say enough good things about Afino Entertainment. Dave had our guests up and dancing all night and knew just how to keep the party going! He was always quick to respond to ANY questions we had throughout the planning process and was beyond accommodating. Dave knows what he's doing and is amazing at what he does! He will always be our recommendation!
Malorie & Jordan: Thank you so much! It was such a wonderful time at The Historic Hotel in Bethlehem, PA. What a gorgeous location to have a wedding. You both were so polite and friendly, and so were your guests. I can't get over how incredibly adorable your son Benjamin is. Watching him dance with you at the end of the night was priceless. You and your family's love for one another is strong and supportive. There was positive energy in that room, and it made for such a wonderful night. The food was delicious, and the holiday decorations were stunning. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Pisello!
Dave (aka DJ AFINO) was the DJ for my wedding at the Sussex County Fairgrounds. I am an extremely picky music person, and was searching for someone who would allow the music tastes of myself and my husband to be evident in the evening. Dave went to great lengths to customize our event, was extremely responsive and flexible, navigated all my anxieties about the music and flow of the event with patience and understanding, and kept true to our wishes. Not only was the music amazing, but Dave also emceed the wedding, beginning with the ceremony, and coordinated with the caterer and other vendors to make sure the evening continued to flow well. I cannot recommend Dave enough. His professionalism, knowledge of the business, and great taste are so far beyond average that he's on a level all his own. His prices are a ridiculous steal, and whomever hires him is extremely lucky. Thanks again Dave! – Lauren & Bobby
Lauren & Bobby: Thank you so much! I don't know what to say. Your words are so kind and wonderful. It was an honor to be a part of your special day, and even more of an honor for you to leave such a wonderful review for me. It is very comforting knowing that I am doing a good job. I try my best to make the day as easy and stress-free as possible. You provided a perfect list of music for me to incorporate into the day, from beginning to end. It was amazing to witness a marriage between two people that have so much love and compassion for one another. Both of your families came together in such a harmonious way, and that is such a beautiful thing to witness. Thank you for hiring me to entertain your guests and for hiring Stephanie as your photographer. We both had so much fun. Your photos look incredible! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Skrabal!
Dave's energy and enthusiasm made our big day one of the the greatest days of both mine and my wifes life. His ability to mix what sort of music I wanted with what my wife wanted was outstanding. I would pick DJ Dave 100 times over again, on top of that he is an overall great guy.
Thanks again Dave
Nathan & Shannon: Thank you so much! What an incredible day you had. To see so many friends and family members come from all over the world is something that always inspires me and brings joy to my heart. I was extremely happy that a few of your guests came up to request some traditional Irish songs that I did not happen to know about. You two have lots of support and love from your friends and family, and that means that you inspire each and every one of them. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I wish you both peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Campbell!
I planned my wedding in less than 2 months. Dave was recommended by a mutual friend and he exceeded all of my expectations. He was extremely kind and professional throughout the whole process. He worked with my budget, was very helpful and was accommodating with my Monday evening wedding!! He had the party going all night and almost everyone complimented me on how much fun he was! Thank you so much Dave!!
Brooke & Christopher: Thank you so much! You two were absolutely wonderful. You had a beautiful wedding. We were blessed with perfect weather at Martell's Waters Edge (Bayville, NJ). Your ceremony officiant was one of the best I've ever worked with. It was an honor to be there to share in the experience. Everyone was happy, supportive, and in a good mood from the beginning to the end. I'm so happy for the both of you. I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Chee! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.
Dave was fantastic from the moment we met with him. He never pressured my, now husband, and myself on anything.
I felt very comfortable with Dave's detail to music and energy. He kept to his promises with the do not play list and taking curses out of the playlist. He was always where he needed to be well in advance, he was always polite, and he is a charismatic kind of guy. His work was seamless!
Any future events that need DJing, I will book him in a heartbeat! It was one of the easiest and stress free experiences!
Jessica & Scott: Thank you so much! It was such an honor to be a part of your very special day at The Westwood. You picked such a beautiful location. It's easily one of my favorite locations in New Jersey. The banquet hall staff always does such a beautiful job. It is a pleasure working with them. Like I said to you at the end of the night, it was incredibly evident in your guests' energy that you inspire them all and that you are a beacon of light to each and every one of them. It was such a memorable night. Thank you for your review. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Barnes!
We hired Afino to DJ our wedding. We couldn't be happier with the service Dave provided. Even my guests were complimenting our choice. Very professional, knows exactly how to keep the flow going, and he is very sweet. Adorable, to boot! haha Thank you again! We appreciate all of your hard work. You were great! Very impressed.
Stacy & Brian: Thank you so much! Your wedding day was incredible. You picked a beautiful location to have your ceremony and reception. The view was stunning. The food was excellent. The staff at The Channel Club were so friendly, polite, and professional. All of your guests were so fun and respectful towards one another. You had a gorgeous ceremony, your grand introductions were exciting and energetic, and it was wonderful to see everyone together for a big group photo at the end of the night. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. O'Connor!
