Working with Mike (DJ Napps) was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were overwhelmed with finding a DJ at first, but after hearing from a friend who had attended a wedding he played RAVE about his skills, we immediately looked him up.Sent on 01/07/2020
Right from the start we were met with quick responses and clear information (Melinda, the general manager at Breakthrough was absolutely wonderful to work with when we first inquired). Mike was flexible with setting up meeting times, and amazing when it came to helping us map out the night, and really got our timeline nailed down (he was like an event planner and DJ rolled into one). He made us feel more than confident that every aspect, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception, was going to be perfect.
He and his team exceeded every expectation, and truly made it a night we will never forget. Every song he played was exactly the kind of music and vibe we were hoping for, and he kept the energy going throughout the entire reception. We still have people talking about how much fun they had dancing the night away -- there wasn't a time when the dance floor wasn't completely full!
I cannot recommend them enough, so if you are on the fence, or are just finding Breakthrough Entertainment, look no further, these guys are the BEST.

Angel (DJ Ara) DJ'd our wedding this August and it was flawless. He took care of getting the timeline for the day created and keeping everything organized from start to finish. We even had a few last minute things pop up during our dances that he accommodated on the fly to keep everything moving seamlessly. I'd 100% call him again for any other DJ needs in the future!Sent on 08/15/2019

Wonderful to work with!
My husband is all about his music. DJ Jestyr worked with us to create an evening of music that pleased all at our reception AND included a diversity of genres. Our dance floor was full all night. Thank you!!!Sent on 07/22/2020

My experience with this vendor was phenomenal. Angel is truly a great DJ.
Angel did an amazing job at our wedding on 7/26/19. He was extremely helpful, professional and kind. His organization and responsiveness made planning the music at our wedding very easy. We had all different types of music and he knew how to keep the party going. Angel truly cared that we had a great experience-and thanks to him, we certainly did!Sent on 08/15/2019

Amazing Wedding Experience!
DJ Crewz at Breakthrough DJ just did my wedding and I couldn't have been happier! He was able to keep the wedding timeline, while staying flexible to changes AND he was able to keep guests on the dance floor! (my number 1 priority!). It was a flawless wedding thanks to DJ Crewz! I HIGHLY recommend DJ Crewz & Breakthrough DJ!Sent on 07/10/2019
-- I also got the photo booth which my guests had a TON of fun with! Days later we are still talking about all the fun photos! Definitely worth it!

DJ A-Live was a blast!
We hired DJ A-Live (Adam Main) as our DJ for our wedding in May. He was so flexible and professional with every meeting and delivered a perfect night! My husband and I have very conflicting tastes in music and he was able to craft together an incredible playlist for our cocktail hour that reflected us. He had never been to our venue but researched the layout and had no problems with sound or set up. He directed the whole entire night perfectly and kept the music and energy going until the end. He made special requests for shout outs and found a couple of Greek dancing songs for my husband's family. The music reflected exactly what we planned for and DJ A-live was a blast!Sent on 08/25/2019

Dj ara was amazing!
We had great service from DJ ARA! He mixed all types of music together to make it more like a club atmosphere. He had the dance floor packed all night long. We had a blast thanks to him! We are so particular with music that we love and he met all of our requests. He was super personable and professional. We would highly recommend him for a great party!!!!!Sent on 03/14/2019

DJ Hogan was absolutely incredible. He had many suggestions to help us keep the party going, what order to do things in that made the most sense for our timeline and to keep our guests happy, and was very professional. He checked in with the bride & groom regularly (but without being distracting) to make sure everything was going to plan, and made sure to play our favorites for us. He also did a great job mixing songs together so that transitions from one song to another made sense, and he put our requests into an order that kept the party going all night long. I loved working with him and recommend him to anyone in the market for a wedding/party DJ.Sent on 10/09/2018

We lived out of town from our wedding. DJ Ara spoke with us on the phone before booking which made us feel comfortable and confident. We had a final meeting where we went through some cultural specific songs we needed and announcements. Dj Ara came to the rehersal to ensure everyone was on the same page. Everything went so smoothly. He kept the dance floor filled all night. He got all of the songs we needed, and edited our first dance just like we needed. His calming demeanor brought a good energy to the wedding, and he has an excellent taste in music. He really tailored songs appropriately throughout the night. I just couldnt have asked for anything better. We highly recommend him.Sent on 09/04/2018

DJ Hogan is Amazing!!
We are so happy we went with Breakthrough Entertainment, and DJ Hogan to be our DJ. He made our special day perfect and personal. He made time to talk to us several times leading up to the wedding and was very good about being organized and had tons of great ideas for how to have a spectacular party. He really pays attention to details, and took things he heard from the speeches into account (example my love of The Beatles and Red Sox), and would incorporate that into the music played. DJ Hogan is so friendly and is the best DJ I have seen! I have recommended them to several friends getting married, and would definitely hire him again!!Sent on 11/20/2018

BreathThrough Entertainment is the BEST!!! My Wife & I just got married on 8/18/18 and ANGEL was our DJ. By far the most Professional, Organized and Fun DJ we could have ever asked for. If you're looking for a DJ, stop looking, because this is your guy. From Ceremony to Final Dance of the night, ANGEL truly made our special day! We recommend BreakThrough Entertainment to ANY & ALL getting married. Thanks again for everything, we'll never forget our special day!Sent on 08/29/2018

Breakthrough entertainment was amazing to work with! We used them for both our DJ and photo booth. We had DJ Sweet and he was amazing. He helped us make our playlist and offered great suggestions. We ended up extending an hour because everyone was having such a great time on the dance floor!Sent on 08/25/2018

Professional Amazing DJs & Emcees Well Worth the Money
The team at Breakthrough Entertainment is absolutely amazing and I can't recommend them enough. I absolutely love working with DJ Naps, Melinda, and the team at Breakthrough. As a wedding planner, it's important to me that I work with other wedding professionals that have integrity, professionalism, and will take care of my clients. Mike and his team are extremely professional and amazing at what they do. Melinda is super organized and responsive and their DJ's always get the party going and keep it going! They also make great Emcees, which is so important to me as the planner as they're moving the day along from one micro-event to the next. I recently had the pleasure of working with Mike, Melinda, and DJ Hogan on a wedding and, despite all the challenges this pandemic has brought, they were professional, responsive, flexible, and cognizant of keeping everyone safe. The music and cues went very smoothly and everyone loved the mixes by DJ Hogan. I'm so grateful we have Breakthrough Entertainment here in Rochester and highly recommend them to everyone. I look forward to working with them on many more weddings and events.Sent on 10/20/2020

We used DJ Jestyr for our daughter's wedding and he did a great job! Stuck with the couple's list for music, kept the dancing going. They had several meetings with him and we met with him once as well to make sure everything went according to plan and it went very smoothly. Everyone enjoyed the music, the lighting was perfect for our venue at the Century Club in Rochester. Dave was very easy to work with and professional and personable. Would highly recommend him and Breakthrough to anyone hosting a wedding.Sent on 07/25/2018

BreakThrough was awesome! DJ Chris Sweet was our DJ for our wedding and we are so thankful for him! He was fantastic throughout the whole planning process & wedding night. The planning sheets online were so helpful & the uplighting in the venue was perfect. The microphones for the ceremony & speeches were perfect. Chris was amazing and my family & friends loved him!Sent on 06/20/2018
Our photobooth attendant was also amazing! Everyone loved all of the props that BreakThrough provided and my family couldn't step away from the photobooth. I received all the pictures (both singles and the printed versions) just a few days after the wedding and I couldn't be happier with them!
I definitely recommend BreakThrough for all of your wedding music & photobooth needs!

The very best wedding dj!
I want to take the opportunity to thank the team that made our wedding a true celebration, BreakThrough Entertainment led by the talented Mike DjNaps Napoli.Sent on 01/03/2019
Mike DjNaps Napoli was the VERY FIRST vendor we reached out to for our wedding. In fact, we cleared our possible wedding dates with him prior to booking our venue because it was so important to us to have him DJ at our wedding.
I had the pleasure of working with Mike at the University of Rochester for various events, and I knew that when I got married, I wanted him to be our DJ. Many people thought I was crazy for wanting a DJ from upstate New York when we are in the tri-state area with plenty of great DJ companies, but having worked with Mike before, I knew he was in a league of his own and would execute our wedding exactly as we wanted- and he did indeed!
We had a very specific musical vision as we had a traditional Orthodox Jewish ceremony and a more secular party. We opted for a band for the ceremony, and Mike worked seamlessly with our band- alternating between DJ and band for our ceremony.
Mike was a fantastic MC, following our wedding timeline to a T and keeping the energy of our wedding up all night long.
We also had Breakthrough Entertainment provide our photo booth, which added a great activity and was a lot of fun for our wedding guests to enjoy. We got all of the digital copies of the photos from the booth- both composites and individual photos- immediately after our wedding, which was great to share with guests and have in addition to our photographer's photos.
Overall, it is Breakthrough Entertainment's professionalism, performance and personalities, that make them the very best DJs in the tri-state area. If you're looking for your Wedding Entertainment, look no further than BreakThrough Entertainment!

We used DJ Sweet for our wedding and everything was perfect! People cannot stop talking about how much they loved the music at our wedding. People were dancing non-stop, and that's exactly what we wanted. We also used Breakthrough for our photo booth, another hit! I would highly recommend Breakthrough for both DJ services and the photo booth. The whole night went so smooth, and a huge part of that is thanks to DJ Sweet for being so accommodating and working with our vendor, so we didn't have one thing to worry about!Sent on 02/20/2018
Craig · Married on 10/14/2017
We were referred to BreakThrough by our friends after going to their wedding and loving their DJ. After browsing their website and watching the DJ videos (highly recommend doing this to help you pick a DJ!) we ended up picking DJ ARA (Angel) and we could not have been any happier. We met with Angel on a few separate occasions to plan our event and he was always accommodating to our schedule and requests while planning. Getting through all of the details leading up to the wedding almost seemed TOO EASY!Sent on 11/21/2017
When it came down to wedding day, I honestly cannot thank Angel enough for nailing EXACTLY what we wanted when it came to our music. We had requests all over the place (obscure songs, classic rock, EDM) and he put together such a beautiful blend of music throughout the entire night. The dancefloor was NEVER empty. Angel did a great job mixing old and new, and keeping guests of all ages happy!! My bride and I have had so many compliments from our guests about the music at our wedding. I cannot thank DJ ARA enough for making our night the biggest party of our life!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Nicole · Married on 09/16/2017
We could not have been happier with our decision to use Breakthrough Entertainment and Chris Sweet for our wedding! Chris was comprehensive and consultative when we met to discuss the details of our day. From ceremony to reception Chris' music selections were top notch and our guests never left the dance floor. Thank you for making our day so incredibly fun and memorable!Sent on 10/30/2017

Angel (DJ ARA) from Breakthrough Entertainment was our DJ and I cannot say enough positive things about him or Breakthrough as a whole. From our pre-wedding meeting with Angel I knew that everything in relation to the music and lighting for our wedding was going to be great and I was absolutely correct the day of. Angel followed through on exactly what we wanted with music and our dance floor was literally packed the entire time. The uplights were a great addition and definitely make a difference. Melinda, the office manager and Angel were super responsive through email throughout the planning process. I highly recommend Breakthrough and DJ ARA! Thank you again!!!Sent on 08/19/2017

Breakthrough and DJ A_Live did an incredible job on our wedding day. Adam (DJ A_Live) was professional, experienced and accessible, we meet with him once before the wedding and then he called us week of to go over the details. He kept the flow of the day going, had us rocking on the dance floor and all around did an amazing job!Sent on 08/12/2017
Heather · Married on 07/21/2017
To say DJ A-Live (Adam) is top notch is an understatement!! He was professional, punctual & prepared from our very first meeting! He is easy to talk to & was always available if we had questions or wanted to make changes. He has plenty of experience to offer suggestions if you are unsure of something but never made us feel like we didn't have options or it had to be done a certain way.Sent on 07/26/2017
At the wedding, Adam kept things on track and always knew what was coming next keeping things running smoothly. He was fun!! He made it possible for my groom & I to mingle & dance with our guests without having to worry about being in charge of keeping things moving. It was wonderful!! Adam had it covered!! His mix of music was perfect & he kept the dance floor full all night!!! We received countless compliments on the music & have already recommended him to many!! I highly recommend Breakthrough Entertainment...and DJ A-Live!!!

We worked with Adam (DJ Live) and he was by far the best part of the wedding services. He was incredibly personable and professional and took care of way more than we expected or could ha e anticipated. He was fantastic to work with and the whole experience surpassed our expectations. If there is one part of a celebration you want to be perfect, go with breakthrough entertainment.Sent on 09/12/2017

Angel - DJ Ara was referred to us by my close friend & we couldn't be more happier that we chose to work with him! He was so easy to work with & fun & professional all at the same time. He listens to what his clients want, yet gives his expertise advice when asked. If we could do our wedding all over again; we wouldn't even second guess in asking Angel to get this party started! We look forward to seeing him again in couple months at our friend's wedding!!Sent on 06/14/2017
