We cannot properly convey the energy and excitement DJ Shyne and the Boston Common Band brought to our wedding without using at least 100 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From the moment DJ Shyne and the Boston Common Band signed on for our wedding, we felt like we received A+ communication. Months before the wedding, DJ Shyne spent over an hour on a Skype video call with us so we could "meet" face to face and discuss the wedding.
DJ Shyne had a list of questions he asked and then listened to the vision we had for our perfect wedding day. He wanted to know everyones' names, how they were spelled & pronounced, who was related to whom, how we wanted introductions, our first dance song, and on and on.
After that phone call, we felt totally relaxed that the dance party would be epic and IT WAS. At the reception, DJ Shyne introduced our wedding party, parents, and us. He did so with an extremely contagious energy that spilled over into the dance party later on! Every guest was up and dancing and enjoying the DJ & band!!
At one point, a singer from the band came right into the crowd of dancing guests and broke into a 5 minute Michael Jackson dance that was SPOT ON. Everyone thought that was so much fun! The band let us come up on stage with them and lead a song's chorus and we had the chance to interact with our guests from a different perspective.
We took dance lessons before the wedding for our first dance and we were both nervous about executing. DJ Shyne did two run throughs with us deciding where we would enter the dance floor and how it would look. He made us feel so comfortable that by the time we came out to do our first dance, we were excited & couldn't wait to show off our moves.
We had SO many guests tell us at brunch the next morning how much fun the band was, how energetic the DJ was, how interactive the band was, and how much fun they had!! We cannot say enough about how dedicated they are to what they do. These guys are truly special!!!
This was just an amazing night! The venue, the guests, the bride and groom!! Just an A+ experience all around! Thank you both for this incredible review!
I honestly don't know where to begin or end with how wow'd I am with ECF. DJ Shyne deserves 100 stars. I have never attended an event with such incredible service and performance in all aspects - DJ, music, crowd pleasing, lighting, timing, responsiveness. I helped arrange the event and, three days later, am still getting texts and messages from attendees about how amazing the DJ and entertainment was. ECF is extremely easy to work with and extremely professional. If you don't use ECF, you are making a choice just not to have the highest quality entertainment at your event.
We had such an amazing time with you and the NEU bunch! Thank you so much for this review!!
I may be a little biased here but we had by far the best DJ of any wedding I have ever been to. From beginning to end Jeff was a ROCKSTAR! To start, after speaking with Jeff, we were sold. His knowledge on music and equipment and how to best use the space far exceeded my expectations. We booked Jeff really early in our wedding planning process and he would check in every few months to see how we were doing and asked how he could help. When it was time to sit down and talk about music, he walked us through step by step and made us think about things we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He suggested amazing versions of songs and how to get the most people on the dance floor. On the night of the wedding, because of Jeff, people we're on the Dance floor even before dinner was over and most people didn't leave the dance floor all night. Jeff was AMAZING to say the least. We are still getting compliments about Jeff and constantly being asked for his contact information. If you are getting married, you NEED Jeff Mader at E.C.F. Entertainment!!
@Amanda/Rohan...This review means the world to us! Thank you for sharing such incredible feedback. You always have a friend here at E.C.F. Entertainment, and we cannot wait for another opportunity to party with your friends and families!
We had DJ Tony and he was awesome. He met with us two times to go over the various details of our big day. During the celebration he kept us on track reminding us of the time to make sure we got all of our special moments done. He was very helpful during the whole process. You do not realize how fast the time slips by on that day.
I HAD THE PLEASURE OF WORKING WITH JEFF MADER AND MICHAEL OSTALAZA ON OUR BIG DAY ON 11/11/17. JEFF WAS BEYOND AWESOME TO WORK WITH, SO PROFESSIONAL BUT AT THE SAME TIME SO DOWN TO EARTH. AFTER OUR FIRST MEETING WITH JEFF WE FELT AS IF WE HAD KNOWN HIM FOR YEARS AND ON OUR FINAL CONSULT BEFORE THE BIG DAY HE NEW EXACTLY WE WANTED AND SURE DID DELIVER. HIS ASSISTANT MICHAEL WAS ALSO EXTREMELY HELPFUL THE DAY OF WITH HELPING OUR GUEST WITH THE PHOTOBOOTH AND WAS TOTALLY AMAZING WHEN MY TODDLER SON HIT HIM IN THE EYE WITH A STICK. HIRING THEM WAS ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE MADE DURING THE WEDDING PROCESS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
VANESSA & KENNY
@Vanessa & Kenny! Thank you so incredibly much for allowing us to share in your big day! Beyond just the performance, we are even more glad to have made two great friends!
Working with ECF entertainment was a great experience and I highly recommend their services. They are so accommodating to every request you give them. Our wedding was 10/20/17, DJ Manolo was amazing and enjoyable to be around. Without him the ceremony and reception would of been a bore. He set the mood and people never left the dance floor. He was amazing and very nice. He has clear passion for his work.
@Candice...A "thank you" just simply isn't enough. It may be all we have to offer, but it was incredible to read your review. Thank you to the moon and back!
DJ Shyne was not only the most amazing DJ that our guests are still talking about a month later, but he was the best vendor we got to work with! His immediate responses to my millions of emails and his excitement for our big day was contagious! I would recommend ECF to anyone!
@Rose/Adam....Thank you so very much for your amazing review! We were absolutely thrilled to share in your picture perfect day!
My wife and I could not have asked for a more seamless and outstanding DJ experience than we got from DJ J-Boogz and E.C.F. Entertainment. From our first Google Hangout session with Josh, during which he was able to answer all of our key questions (while having the foresight to cover additional items which we had not even had the good sense to think of yet), we knew that we had barked up the right tree. Josh was acutely professional every step of the way; walking us through the online module (which allowed us to pre-select our must-plays and do-not-plays while filtering requests from our guests), helping us to visualize the flow of our day-of schedule, and customizing a cocktail hour, dinner, and dance-floor playlist that rocked everyone's socks off. DJ J-Boogz flashed his professionalism and MC-prowess all night long, taking the vocal reigns only to guide the evening when necessary, and otherwise allowing the music to bump the speakers. We are so grateful for the experience, and for the degree to which Josh cleared our plates of any concerns pertaining to the audio realm. He comes with our absolute highest recommendation, and is sure to make your day memorable!
We had ECF, DJ Shyne and the photo kiosk for our wedding on 10/7/17. They were everything we could have imagined and more! They were so attentive and really made the day so special. I would recommend them to ANYONE. They were amazing!!!!
@Kerrin! Thank you so much for this review! We absolutely love you, Jason, and your families/friends for being such great hosts!
We were so thrilled with our choice of ECF/DJ Shyne for our wedding. From start to finish everything was so professional. He was highly responsive, very knowledgeable, and flexible. Our guests were on the dance floor from the start of the first song, until the ending of the last. There was never a break in the music- not even as the songs changed! We are beyond impressed, and are so thankful that we used ECF for our wedding, one of the best decisions we made!
@Kaylen and Austin! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing review! Thrilled that we could have shared in at least a brief moment of your special day!
DJ Shyne absolutely crushed it at our wedding. The music selection for the cocktail hour and his introductions were the perfect setup for one of the liveliest dance parties we've ever been a part of. We've had a ton of our guests asking for our wedding playlist which was entirely his design. After meeting with Jeff we knew we were on the same page. We gave him some basic information on our style and some genres we wanted to include for our family and he ran with it perfectly. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and he incorporated everything we had hoped for. While the music selection and sound quality is obviously what people think of when evaluating their entertainment, the thing that really set E.C.F. apart from all of our vendors was Jeff's communication from our first contact all the way through our wedding day. He was extremely thorough and transparent and he offloaded all of the stress of planning. He was extremely proactive with us which helped us keep to our planning schedule. Our wedding planner literally told us, "I have never worked with a more organized and detail oriented DJ." If you're looking for a DJ who can throw a ridiculous party and take all the stress of planning your entertainment off your plate, DJ Shyne and E.C.F Entertainment will absolutely deliver. Thank you again to the whole team for ensuring our wedding was a night that our guests and us will always remember.
@Kyle/Amanda.....These reviews are BANANAS!!! Thank you for the detail in which you wrote....the time that you took....the props that you gave! This by far has made my year! May #TheLortiesBeWithYou
We booked DJ Tony for our wedding along with ECF entertainment/Soul Estate and needless to say, 5 stars just simply is not enough! We were so happy with our music selection and absolutely loved the combination of having a DJ and a Band. They totally killed it!
@Jaclyn....We are so thrilled that you can look back on your big day with such fond memories! Your dance floor was a smoke show!! Congratulations to you and Alex, once more!
DJ Shyne and his team were AMAZING! Not only was he incredibly professional, he played the BEST music that kept people dancing all night long. We are still getting compliments on the amazing music three months later. We couldn't be happier!! We would 100% recommend ECF Entertainment to anyone looking to have an amazing time dancing the night away.
@Hannah and Paul! You guys were the perfect embodiment of a dream night. From top to bottom everything was just incredible. Thank you for this, and we are so glad to have shared in your special day. Please do not hesitate to reach back out at any point!
We hired DJ Manolo for our September wedding and he was nothing short of AMAZING. From the moment we hired him I knew we had made the right choice. He was extremely organized throughout the entire process, easily accessible for questions and phone conversations, and very flexible with his time, he's also just an awesome guy with great vibes and personality. He completely eased my mind when we spoke in the days before the wedding to go over all of the music details, a true professional. The music for the cocktail hour, wedding procession, and dinner were perfect and exactly what we had discussed. However, once the dance party started we really got to see him shine. I have never danced so much in my LIFE, the entire wedding was on the dance floor the whole night. It was hit after hit, he was reading the vibes of the crowd throwing out a versatile mix of music all night long. He was getting the crowd hyped up, doing shout outs for me and my husband, it was an INCREDIBLE party! Everyone I spoke to commented on how awesome the DJ and music were, asking me for his information and singing his praises even for days after the wedding. If I could give 100 stars I would, I recommend DJ Manolo all day every day!
Jamie and Keith...you two are true superstars in our book! Thank you for allowing us even a glimpse into your special day, and we are beyond grateful for this amazing review!
Nate did such an incredible job with our wedding! People were on the dance floor literally all night long. The Best Man still makes comments about how great the cocktail hour music was and how he wishes he could buy a copy of what was played. This was JUST the cocktail hour music. I wasn't a bride that had been planning her wedding since she was little so I struggled a lot with what was expected. Nate was patient and professional with all of my questions and during those times where I had no clue what I wanted. I honestly don't think my wedding would have been the same, or nearly as much fun, if I went with any other entertainment company.
We had a great time at our wedding thanks to DJ Manalo!! Everyone was telling us how awesome the music was and that he definitely entertained the crowed and kept everything upbeat.They are reasonably priced and i would recommend him to anyone who is getting married!!
Thank you for this great review Allyson! We are thrilled that you can look back on your day with such fond memories!
DJ Shyne is absolutely amazing! From day one right up until the Big Day he was right there by our side guiding us through every step. He made me feel at ease and his technique and organizational skills are on point. Whenever I had a question or wanted to switch something up he was always quick with a response via email or phone call. I ended up adding a special dance with my son 2 days before my wedding and I was so pleased that he was able to make it happen on such short notice.
I highly recommend DJ Shyne and ECF entertainment. The day of the wedding he was right there informing us on what's coming up next and what to expect next. It made for a stress free day. He also had so many people on the dance floor that evening. People were coming up to me saying they usually never dance and they were dancing the night away. He made our wedding epic. Thank you so much Jeff!
Nikki & Rob! You both totally rock! We cannot thank you enough for your love and support! Thank you to the moon and back
Rolling Rick from ECF was just amazing. Everyone remarked about what a great wedding party it was... "best evah" was a common refrain!
RR had people on the dance floor all night. As the groom, I could not have been more impressed with his professionalism and attentions to detail. What a blast, and i give Rolling Rick much of the credit.
We are already getting feedback to do it again next year!! Thank you Rick!
I am a very very particular person (in general) and have been told that my expectations from people in general are VERY high. Not to mention when its my own wedding.
Josh was simply outstanding. Zero complaints. He even let me DJ for a bit. Couldn't ask for more.
DJ Shyne was absolutely amazing to work with. From the beginning we knew we had picked the right person. Our coordinators even commented how excellent he was to work with from their end and will definitely be recommending him in the future to other couples. He was super organized and on top of every detail. The music was perfect for each moment. He kept people on the dance floor all night and knew when to play certain songs based on the crowd. He was so professional and was a perfect MC. You can tell he has done this 100 times and everything was just flawless. If you need someone who is professional both on the business side of things as well as someone who has great taste in music, Jeff is your DJ! I couldn't recommend him more. Thank you Jeff for making our wedding a night to remember and keeping me dancing all night!
DJ Manolo of ECF Entertainment performed at our wedding in August and he was amazing! We used the online tools provided for the wedding timeline and song selection which were easy and convenient to use. We got a little caught up with other planning aspects as we got closer to the big day so we didn't have time to really fill out all the playlists, but we did put in a small list of songs we wanted and some basic ideas on our do not play list (no line dances). DJ Manolo took the suggestions we made and came up with some perfect selections that fit exactly what we were looking for. There were several times during dinner where we found ourselves thoroughly enjoying a song and we turned around and give a big thumbs-up to DJ Manolo who would nod with a big smile on his face. It was very clear to us that he loves what he does and loves seeing people have an enjoyable time with his help. We had so many comments from guests about how the DJ was fantastic and we couldn't agree more. If we had to do it all over again we would choose DJ Manolo and ECF every time.
DJ RollingRick, my now husband and I are very grateful and can't thank Rick enough for the great job he did at our wedding on 8/12/17 at the House of the 7 Gables. He even took the time to share a surprise that one of our precious guest Sophie put together. Also, he played most of the songs our guests requested. Our guests really enjoyed it and wouldn't stop dancing.
Thank you so much from beginning to end.
DJ Shyne and ECF Entertainment were fantastic. Top-notch service all-around. DJ Shyne took the time at the beginning to have a video conference to go through in detail all of the stages of the wedding ceremony and reception. The details he anticipated were so thorough and alleviated so much stress as it helped us decide matters that we would not have even thought of, especially that early in the process. DJ Shyne then had another video conference closer to the wedding date to go through every detail. He responded to emails almost immediately throughout the whole process.
Now, to the actual wedding day. He was amazing. First of all, DJ Shyne put us in touch with Divina Strings who performed as a string trio at the ceremony. They learned songs we requested and it was beautiful. Many of our guests said how great their performance was. We had a family friend as the officiant. The microphones that ECF Entertainment used were of the highest quality and everyone was able to hear our vows. Likewise, my wife and I gave a quick toast outside of our venue at the end of the cocktail hour, and the microphone was great.
At the reception, DJ Shyne brought the house down. Even before the dancing started, he played a song I mentioned as part of a funny story in my toast. A lot of people got a good laugh out of it, and this is just an example of how much fun and how detail-oriented DJ Shyne is. Once the dancing started, it did not stop. I have never seen a wedding where the dance floor was as full the entire time as it was here. I truly could not believe how fun his performance was. My wife and I have friends and family that never dance, but were on the dance floor for most of the night.
I cannot recommend DJ Shyne and ECF Entertainment highly enough. You will be so happy if he is your wedding DJ!
My wife and I are so incredibly happy with E.C.F. Entertainment! Everything about them was fantastic! We ended up booking one of the owners, Jeff Mader (DJ Shyne) and we couldn't have been happier. He was so easy to work with and was incredibly helpful, responsive, and accommodating. He was always willing to work with us to schedule Skype meetings that worked best for us and they were always productive and efficient; no time wasted at all! My wife and I often found ourselves asking for his opinion on just about everything and he always clearly laid out our options and which ones he felt would align the best with our vision for the big day. Their website's client portal was great, too! So easy to follow and asked all the right questions to help them build the perfect playlists for each aspect of the day. These guys really know what their doing. They played all the right music at all the right times and the dance floor was NEVER empty from the time it opened until the end of the reception!
We would recommend these guys to anyone. If you're even remotely considering E.C.F., just do it, you won't regret it! :D
Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity with this review. It was an absolute blast getting to celebrate with you and your group!
DJ Shyne (Jeff) was THE BEST! Throughout the entire planning process he so helpful through emails and face-timing. He consistently answered my questions in a timely manner and gave amazing input for the flow of the night. He helped me stay on track when planning and created a checklist for me to complete during the final few weeks before the wedding. During the wedding, he was so energetic and made the flow of the night run flawlessly. He kept everything on schedule enabling optimal dance time! He got my guests up and on the dance floor the entire night. He made strong connections with us and made sure that our song requests were played. He completely exceeded our expectations!!
@Alicia! So thrilled to receive your feedback. I had an amazing night working with you and your group! You always have a friend here at E.C.F. Entertainment!
