    Wedding 8/17/19

    Frank and Simone were both amazing to work with. They were very friendly and willing to accommodate any request you have. Frank was willing to come hours early to be set up to have music playing as guests arrived for the ceremony, ensured the ceremony was projected, and even accommodated a live acoustic first dance. It was great to have the opportunity to pick music we wanted while letting him use some creativity at other points. He has a very broad music knowledge that spans all types. The transitions were seamless and all the guest complimented how great he was. He also interacted with guests and assured everyone was having a great time. The wedding wouldn’t have gone nearly as smoothly without Frank and we can’t thank him enough! If you’re looking for a DJ in the area, stop here.

    Great Experience

    DJ Frank was absolutely fantastic! From our first consultation all the way through to the end, he was so helpful, responsive, and made us feel relaxed. He is very experienced and his laid back demeanor was a huge plus for us. Our guests had an amazing time and the dance floor was packed all night. Frank was very responsive to the crowd and was even able do a custom shoutout for one of our guests that we had asked for. He gave us the opportunity to plan out as much or as little of the music as we wanted. For a couple who didn't have ideas for every minute of music, it was so helpful to have him say that he would fill in any gaps. It also helped us relax on the day of and during the planning process. Frank was also very helpful in terms of laying out the timeline of events for the night and giving us some structure to work with. With two sets of equipment, Frank was able to seamlessly support the Lakeside Ceremony and the Mansion House Reception without any gaps or transitions. I highly recommend Friendly Entertainment to everyone.

    Frank did an amazing job at our wedding! The dance floor was packed the entire night and everyone kept commenting on what a great DJ we had. Frank made the planning part so easy and took care of everything for us that day....we did not have to worry about a thing and were able to totally enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend Frank.....you will not be disappointed!

    Wonderful Experience!

    We recently got married in June and Frank was our DJ. He is incredibly easy to work with, and a super friendly guy (appropriate business name). We selected a lot of songs for our ceremony/reception and he made some really great suggestions and song choices for the rest of the night based on those selections. He was an awesome DJ and definitely got our people on the dance floor! He was a great emcee too and kept the evening events rolling along perfectly. I appreciated that he would check in with us for certain things (like the father/daughter and mother/son dance) to make sure we were ready before he announced it. He created a great energy and flow to the night. Super reasonably priced too compared to a lot of other DJs! He even provided us with a mic for the ceremony and fun lighting for the dance floor.

    Awesome DJ - fun & professional

    DJ Frank is hands down the best out there! After he DJ'd for my sisters wedding in 2017, I knew I didn't have to look any further for our June 2019 wedding. DJ Frank didn't even bat an eye when we asked if he'd travel to the Philadelphia area for our wedding. He knows what guests want to hear and has great suggestions when needed. We chose our ceremony music but asked DJ Frank to run with the reception and he didn't disappoint! Our guests have said over and over how much fun they had on the dance floor and we couldn't have had more fun ourselves. DJ Frank is amazing to work with, very responsive and you can tell he really cares about his clients. He even takes some fabulous photos which is a fun perk! Thank you so much DJ Frank! You rock :)

    Frank exceeded our expectations

    Frank was absolutely amazing! We found Frank by recommendation of our wedding planner and we could not be happier with our choice. From the perfectly timed "Kiss Me" by Sixpence None the Richer at our first kiss to the seamless transition of introduction songs at our reception, Frank kept our wedding running smoothly. Our guests could not be kept from the dance floor all night! We truly had an amazing time at our wedding thanks to the wonderful selection of music played by Frank!

    Friendly Entertainment is awesome!

    Brandon DJ'd for our wedding and he is great at what he does!! He was really nice, professional and easy to communicate with and it was pretty seamless to put a timeline together. He got basically everybody dancing and he can read the crowd really well. He also was flexible with some last minute changes the day before the wedding and the morning of. Also, he was able to roll with it when someone got injured at my wedding and it pushed the timeline back. This company is really awesome and you can tell they care about their customers. If you email them, you'll get a reply really quickly, sometimes immediately! Don't hesitate to contact them, they will make your event run so smoothly and get everyone to have a good time!! Thank you again Brandon!

    No better choice!

    Frank came highly recommended, and I knew from the first phone conversation why. He was the nicest most sincere person, who just wants everyone to have a great time. He played all the right music at all the right times! Everyone had an amazing time right until the very end of the last song.

    Incredible Wedding DJ!!!!!!!!

    My fiancé and I loved having Friendly Entertainment DJ our wedding. They were so quick to get back to us with any questions we had. We had Frank as our DJ, who incredible and made sure all the details were in place before our big day. He totally was a huge hit at the wedding and all the guests loved the music. This company caters to your personal needs and style of music/ atmosphere so I'd recommend them to anyone. Friendly Entertainment is easy and enjoyable to work with, good at what they do, and really made the wedding day so much more memorable and stress free.

    This is the DJ to have for any occasion!

    So frank was the best! He helped me with everything, he broke down the whole wedding and explained everything to me I would need and what he would be doing and where he would be at. Stuff I never even thought about but is very crucial to do he was on top of it. Throughout the entire night he even kept us on schedule and always checked in with us first to make sure we were ready which was so helpful! From before my wedding started till the very end when everyone was gone there was music playing. He transitioned every part of the night so well and had everyone up on their feet dancing. So happy we found him and will only use him or refur him to others!

    Great DJ/MC!!

    Hey Brides!

    My wedding was December 8th, 2018 at the Maryland Zoo and I went with Frank, owner of Friendly Entertainment, as my DJ/MC. From the day we met up to talk Frank made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I’m an old soul and wanted good classic music with some fun new stuff thrown in, and man he delivered. He worked with me up until the last minute, accommodating my late requests and doing so calmly. He made it all come together so well, I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. My friends and family are still raving about the DJ. I was so worried my crowd wouldn’t get up to dance, and I’m shocked to say that the dance floor stayed full all night and I give that credit to Frank! He was never cheesy or over the top like some an he, he was literally perfect. If you want a great DJ look no further, Frank is it!!

    5 Stars Are Not Enough!

    As the title suggests, Friendly Entertainment, and particularly Frank and Simmone Marsden, deserve more than 5 stars for the spectacular experience provided at our wedding. Frank's passion for all genres of music is immediately apparent. At our pre-wedding meeting, Frank asked us to provide a few of our favorite songs, and said that he would take care of the rest.

    Frank did just that -- transitioning from 80's bands like The Cure and Tears for Fears, to dance selections from the infamous "Baltimore Club Music" and LMFAO, we received dozens of compliments from our guests about Frank's performance. Indeed, a long-time family friend commented, "The music is amazing, who is your DJ?" I told him Frank Marsden, and he responded, "Frank Marsden?! He was the DJ at my wedding 10 years ago! He's amazing!" Frank's experience speaks for itself through the compliments that we received on our special day.

    Needless to say, Ashley and I wholeheartedly recommend Friendly Entertainment for any event, wedding or otherwise, without any hesitation. We have and will continue to highly recommend Friendly Entertainment to friends and family, and will absolutely use them for any future event.

    Words cannot explain...

    DJ Frank showed up with a silence, you couldn't even tell he was in the room. The music was so precise and clear but also so relevant to our Wedding. DJ Frank put together a mix of music that fit into our guest so perfect that everyone was dancing all night and we even got raving compliments about Frank all evening long. Jennifer and I couldn't have asked for a better DJ to help get our guest up out of their seats and on the dance floor. Would definitely use him again for future events.

    Great wedding with DJ Brandon!

    We had Brandon from Friendly Entertainment DJ our wedding and he was fantastic! Brandon was very responsive prior to the wedding and met with us twice to iron out all of the details and the timeline. After the reception our family gave great reviews of the music selection and atmosphere. We would highly recommend Brandon for a great wedding DJ!

    Best team ever!

    We used Frank at our wedding last night and can't say enough good things about him. He was very responsive and had an amazing planning portal that really made the entire process seamless. He is great at reading the crowd and playing an assortment of genres so everyone has a little something that they like. His wife, Simmone, was our officiant and she was incredibly sweet, professional and attentive to what we wanted in our ceremony. This is the best team out there - and the pricing can't be beat!!

    A Perfect Fit

    We worked with Frank for our recent wedding. He was amazing to work with. We live in Florida and he was very accommodating when we met in person then made preparations over the phone. We really enjoyed using his online system to plan out the timeline of the events and to select our music. On our final meeting Frank went over our entire music selection and helped hone in our timeline with his many years of experience. On the day of the wedding Frank did a wonderful job, he encouraged people to dance but he was never overbearing or theatrical in which we were very much appreciative. The party went better than we could have imagined, everyone had a great time because Frank kept the party going. We are so happy we found Friendly entertainment and would recommend him to anyone on their special day.

    Friendly, engaged, and loves his job

    DJ Frank was a great DJ for our wedding! He and his wife were reasonably priced and fit into our budget, easy to work with, brought and setup all his gear and never needed anything from us day-of other than our go-ahead to do introductions and get the ball rolling. His familiarity with the venue was obvious, but the best thing was his engagement with the music and with our guests. My bride and I were running all over the place but I caught a glimpse of DJ Frank and witnessed someone having fun at their job while keeping people up and having a great time. It would be easy to queue up a playlist and let it go with minimal engagement, but he was really "spinning records" and enjoying the event, which is all we wanted for everyone in attendance.

    We could not have been more happy with Frank and the Friendly Entertainment crew. There are a lot of opportunities for things to go wrong at a wedding and it was very comforting to know we could trust Frank to not only take care of the music, but also take care of all the music and sound for the ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, and dancing after. Having people involved in the wedding who can handle a task is crucial, and took a lot of stress off our shoulders.

    Frank is absolutely amazing. His wife Simmone was very responsive and flexible with meeting schedules and emailing back right away and seems like a sweetheart. Frank is the nicest person ever and very good at his job. He's professional, active, and organized. He made sure the entire wedding was exactly how we wanted it and allowed us to be creative with giving wonderful advice and expertise to make it even better. He kept everyone dancing for almost 3 hours!!! I would highly recommend DJ Frank and his wife Simmone. Absolutely loved it.

    Having now experienced my own wedding, I think having a good DJ is one of the most important roles because of how key they are in setting the mood and pace of the wedding. Frank handled all of that perfectly, and I am really happy I went with him - amazing job.
