I cannot speak highly enough of Terry, Chris, and the rest of the staff at Crown DJs. I was truly impressed by the professionalism that they demonstrated from our very first meeting. It was immediately clear to my wife and I that Crown DJs were the right crew to entrust with our wedding.Sent on 10/16/2015
Their quick response to questions, attention to detail, and dedication to ensuring that the wedding matched our vision was very refreshing. Our DJ, Chris Makiej, was great about helping us match the ceremony and reception to our personalities, suggesting great songs well suited to the occasion and our personalities.
From the moment the reception began, Chris was clearly in his element, kicking off the festivities with two songs would definitely have been on my list if I'd thought about them. Those two selections really stand out as a testament to Chris' ability to get in tune with the music my wife and I envisioned for our big day.
Chris really delivered on our vision of a fun wedding, kicking out the jams that got people dancing on the dance floor and having a great time. Chris played everything from classics like Stevie Wonder to recent radio hits in seamless fashion. The uplighting really helped transform the room from a hotel function space into a joyful party.
Chris also demonstrated a knack for handling the unexpected. Midway through the reception my mom decided she wanted a Mother-Son dance and wanted something slow that we could dance to, though all she could suggest was "something slow". Chris was able to take that little bit of information and deliver astounding results. He cleared the dance floor like it had been part of the plan all along. His choice of Kenny Loggins' "Danny's Song", was perfect and set the stage for a beautiful moment between my mother and I as we danced about and she reminisced on how she use to sing "Danny's Song" to me when I was young. After the dance, Chris got everyone right back on the dance floor without missing a beat!

Terry is absolutely amazing. He listened to what we wanted for music and ran with it. He worked seamlessly with all the other vendors that he had never worked with before making the night stress free and perfect. We got married last October and people are still talking about the vibe of the wedding that was completely set by DJ Terry's amazing music. He can read the crowd perfectly and knew the right song to play at the right time. I would HIGHLY recommend him for any event!!Sent on 08/19/2016

DJ Chris ran our ceremony and our whole night, making sure all of our important details were taken care of and on time. Besides his efficiency, DJ Chris has a personality like no other; Outgoing, funny, laid back. Everything we are and loved having in our DJ! He made us feel very comfortable and listened to every suggestion and request we made. We would recommend Crown Entertainment, especially DJ Chris, to everyone looking for a great DJ with the total package. We went with the ceremony, up lighting, monogram, and 5 hour plus 1 hour overtime Dj service! Worth every penny.Sent on 10/29/2015
Crown DJs, Uplights & Photobooths's reply:Thanks for the kind words, Laura. We love spinning weddings at the Margate and Chris McClure & Luther make a great team!

Terry was very flexible in finding a time to talk with us before the wedding to go over what we wanted. He was everything we could have asked or and more. Terry played great music and kept the dance floor packed to entire night. An impressive selection of music that had all generations up dancing. Everyone loved and had a blast in the photobooth. We truly could not have been happier.Sent on 01/01/2016

Terry/Crown Ent. was exactly what we were looking for in a DJ at our wedding. He made sure he knew the music we liked, he was our best advocate the day of the event, and he kept our guests on the dance floor all night long. He was professional and put us at ease from the start. It was clear that he wanted to learn about our dream wedding so that he'd be prepared to play the jams we were looking for all night long. He asked insightful questions throughout the process and that preparation showed on the day of the event. My wife and I like a broad range of music, and did not have a lot of specific songs we wanted to hear. Our main goal was to keep the dance floor packed the whole night. Terry did a miraculous job. His transitions from song to song were flawless and song choice was great too. The dance floor was packed shoulder to shoulder with 9 year olds to 65 year olds to everything in between. If you want to have the time of your life and feel like your DJ has your back, Terry is the way to go. He is also a great MC if you need that as well.Sent on 09/06/2015

Terry was OUTSTANDING! Professional. Personable. From the moment we booked, to fast responses to every single question and made the day run super smooth day of. Timed the music perfectly. Went above and beyond for our day !!! The week of he realized a piece of our package we chose would not show up because it was too sunny in the room so he offered an alternative to make up for it and it was spectacular. Something he didn't even have to do!!Sent on 10/20/2015
You rock Terry! Thank you !

I cannot say enough positive things about DJ Chris McClure. He made our wedding! He made sure to play all of our must plays and added music that perfectly fit our taste and some pieces that I was more excited to dance to than what I had personally selected. We had some last minute issues with a groomsman not showing up and had to change our lineup the morning of and Chris was super accommodating to the change. He kept the atmosphere of the wedding exciting and I would definitely recommend him to anybody. Everyone we contacted from Crown Entertainment was very professional and they were a great service to work with.Sent on 11/04/2015

Let me start off with this. I had Dj Chris from crown entertainment as my dj. When I first started off with getting this started Dj Moran the owner, was always there for me. He always answered my questions and was very helpful. Never once did he let me down. He helped me through all the steps of the music from the ceremony to the last dance. He also worked with me to find the perfect package for the right price. Very reasonable and so worth my money. When the day came of my wedding it was perfect and more than what I could have asked for. The music ser up outside and inside was perfect, Dj Chris had everyone dances and made More than what I could have asked forSent on 10/25/2015

Chris Makiej was a phenomenal DJ both leading up to and on the day of our wedding. From the first contact with Terry, the owner of the company, Crown Entertainment was responsive, professional, and very detail focused. Before choosing Chris as our DJ, he spoke to us at length about his style, experience, and customization he provided for each event. Leading up to our wedding, Chris was in close contact with us by text and phone, ensuring our reception introduction, events, and accompanying music were well planned. He was very detail oriented, happy to appease any and all requests and generally a really nice guy.Sent on 08/01/2015
Day of, Chris was phenomenal. To start, he provided sound equipment for our outdoor ceremony and musician. Without being a distraction, he adjusted microphones repeatedly so everyone heard every last word, even our vows.
Then, it was time to party! Although it was a humid July night, Chris' music selection and timing had everyone up on the dance floor all night. He played oldies, modern hits, and some more crowd pleasers that got everyone of all ages dancing. Even our elderly and not so spry relatives were on the floor. Every time we as the bride and groom mentioned a request or suggestion, he took care of it. At the end of the night, the dance floor was packed with everyone begging for one last song; although we have been to many weddings with that crowd of guests, we'd never heard our guests so sad for the party to end.
Finally, what truly stood out was how Chris handled the unexpected. After a medical emergency delayed our first dance and the start of the party, Chris went with the flow and re- adapted our schedule exactly as we suggested on the fly. He was absolutely fantastic to work with and the perfect DJ for our wedding -we would and will recommend him to all our friends.
Crown DJs, Uplights & Photobooths's reply:Thank you so much for your insight and kind words about Chris Makiej. It's great to hear that people appreciate all the hard work that is put into producing a wedding! Please keep in touch!

Terry and the entire staff at Crown went above and beyond our expectations and created a truly exceptional experience and one of a kind wedding day. I have experienced Crown DJ's at other weddings and events, and he always manages to provide a unique, individualized celebration; no matter the occasion. The level of service and professionalism are extraordinary, and I would highly recommend them for any function you are planning. From the Uplighting packages that truly transformed our reception space, to the Photobooth rental that gave our guest a unique and personal keepsake of our special day, they have everything to make any occasion the best it can be.Sent on 10/13/2015
Crown DJs, Uplights & Photobooths's reply:Thanks J! Such a great day at the Belknap Mill. Your crowd was super fun and the photobooth always enhances the fun factor. Thank your beautiful bride for putting her trust in us!
Tanya · Married on 03/21/2015
I have so many positive things to say about Crown Entertainment. From our initial contact, Terry was always completely on top of anything I asked about or wanted done. Emails were answered timely, phone calls were never missed. The website they provide you with is awesome. Being able to log any music you would liked played (or not played) was great. I especially loved being able to basically make a time-line of the event for them to go by, play by play. I knew what was coming up next, what I wanted the DJ to say, what games or special dancey songs I wanted to incorporate. We went all out and used the photobooth as well as the up lighting. Money well spent. It completely changes the mood of your venue. I cant stress enough, lose the centerpieces if you have to - get the photobooth! We chose the package where all the photos were put into an album and we were given that to take home at the end of the night. Months later we still pop that open and laugh. Worth it. Having the up lighting was my best decision hands down. Especially if you want your guests to dance! Our DJ Chris Makiej was on point with not only the music but creating an atmosphere with the up lighting that just blew everyone away. Guests still comment on how great the spaced looked with the different lighting throughout the night. Chris himself was extremely personable, accommodating, and just overall great to work with. We had such a great night we asked to extend the reception an hour more and Chris kept the party going right on, like it was always planned to be that long of an event. Long story short, if you want an awesome night, don't skimp on your entertainment services. Crown was so wonderful to work with, and we plan to use them again for other large family functions. We were beyond satisfied with everything they did.Sent on 06/18/2015

For my 40th birthday party I wanted a dance party, and boy did I get one. I don't think I stopped dancing for 4 hours. Chris did a great job playing all my favorite songs and keeping everyone entertained. Terry as always was very helpful and navigated me through my options to make my event a wonderful experience.

weddings are wonderful, but a lot of work. My wife pretty much planned it all, but I recommended the DJ. Yep, she let me be responsible for that. Ha.

I can't say enough positive things about Crown Entertainment and Chris Makiej. I have used Crown Entertainment on 3 separate occasions. Every occasion has been excellent. I had Chris DJ our event on October 4th. He was excellent. We had people from 21 to 85 years old. He mixed it up with a great variety of tunes that kept everyone happy. We will always use Crown Entertainment.Sent on 10/15/2014

DJ Terry was amazing!! exactly what we were looking for. I always think that a DJ makes a wedding and he sure did. One of the reasons we went with him was because he guaranteed he wouldn't play the non traditional wedding music i,e, no electric slide ( not that there is anything wrong with it - its just not us) he listened to our likes and dislikes and stuck to it helping to make an amazing playlist that kept everyone was on the dance floor all night long - all ages!! Our guest even two months later keep telling us what a great time they had and how much the enjoyed the music:-)Sent on 12/02/2014
thank you Terry for helping to make our wedding so memorable.

I used Crown Entertainment for my wedding and couldn't be happier with the services they provided. We used DJ Paul Dailey and also used the photobooth and uplighting services. Everyone was raving about what a great job Paul did. The dance floor was never empty and he stuck to our "do play" and "do not play" lists. The photobooth was a big hit among our guests. I would highly recommend using DJ Paul Dailey and Crown Entertainment for your wedding or other party!Sent on 12/02/2014

My (now) husband and I could not have asked for a better DJ/MC for our wedding. Terry was professional from the very beginning, helping guide us through the maze of wedding planning, not only in respects to the reception organization and music but also in many other aspects including referred vendors, tips on choosing them, etc. His tenure in the industry was above all else. His on-line planner was easy to navigate and allows each bride and groom to customize their special day. Our guests loved the ability to make song requests on-line, helping create a night of dancing that everyone enjoyed. Terry's services are priced very reasonable and worth every penny. You will be guaranteed a great party!Sent on 12/16/2014
