    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!

    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!!

    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.

    DJ Frank was amazing to work with and we couldn't have been happier. He was on time, professional, and an overall pleasure to work with. Aside from his professionalism, he is an amazing DJ and kept our wedding reception dancing the entire night. We would HIGHLY recommend working with him.

    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.

    I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Frank and his wife are! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. We had our wedding at my in laws house so I relied on Frank to narrate the entire evenings events, which he did without one flaw.

    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.

    Frank was awesome. He played great music and kept everyone on the dance floor all night, plus, he made sure everything else went on without a hitch. Simmone was also great and super responsive to any questions that we had. Would highly recommend Frank to everyone!

    D.J. Frank was one of our FAVORITE wedding vendors. He and his wife were extremely responsive and easy to work with. He listened carefully to our preferences and helped us to create a great playlist. He took requests during the reception and was a BIG hit with the guests. But, he still made sure to keep the music in line with our original plan (not too many line dances, etc.). He arrived early and seamlessly coordinated with our caterer and officiant to make the ceremony and reception run smoothly. He even cued the bridesmaids and groomsmen to walk down the aisle. The dance floor was full all night and several guests asked for his contact information so they could book him for other events! Thanks D.J. Frank!

    Frank was DJ for our wedding in July and has been the DJ for other family members and friends in the past. He has done an excellent job at each one. We told him to do his thing for most of the reception and the dance floor was not empty once after the music started. The responses from him and Simmone were timely before the wedding. He communicated well with our wedding coordinator/other vendors to ensure that everything was neat/on time during the reception. Highly recommend him!

    Frank was amazing! He made us feel very comfortable and confident from the first time we met with him to plan the wedding. Frank brought all of the necessary equipment, had a great setup with microphones for our outdoor ceremony with excellent sound quality, kept the schedule running smoothly during dinner/buffet calling/toasts and created an awesome atmosphere on the dance floor. He was super flexible with any adjustments we needed to make and it was clear that his top priority was for the bride and groom to get exactly what they wanted out of their big day. We could not recommend DJ Frank and Friendly Entertainment more! Thank you!!!

    Frank was the best DJ! HE had us all dancing the whole night up until the last song. Before the wedding, he was organized with all the details and made sure he called us with any questions he had to make our day special. A good DJ is worth every penny because they make or break the night. We had the pleasure of seeing his work first hand before our wedding at our cousins wedding and we are so glad we choose him for our wedding day. IF you want a fun, nice DJ, Frank is your guy.

    Look no further for dj! Frank was amazing to work with! He took the time to meet with us before our wedding and helped to guide us through our wedding night! Frank made it so smooth and constantly checked in with us about timing. He was so accommodating to mine and my husband's needs. We created all of the playlists for our wedding and Frank provided. We had some requests of songs not on the music list and again Frank exceeded all expections and provide the exact songs we asked for. He kept everyone on the dance floor! I highly recommend him for a do! He will not disappoint.

    Frank is an amazing DJ and I would highly recommend him to anyone. We loved him as soon as we met up with him to go over all the wedding details. It was amazing how much stress was relieved that day, as he helped with the timeline and the small details we didn’t think of. He made everything so easy and helped make our wedding day amazing. I asked him to create a mix of songs for my father daughter dance and he got it back to me the very next day. He worked great with my coordinator and they made the day run smoothly. He kept the crowd on the dance floor and we had a blast! He even managed to get some amazing pictures of us. My brother and his fiancé are having Frank as the DJ for their wedding in August and I can’t wait to see how great he makes their day.

    Frank & Simone are amazing! If you are getting married in or around Baltimore, look no further.

    They were recommended to us by our venue and we once we'd compared prices, we didn't talk to anyone else. They have an amazing list of local venues they've worked and tell you up front how much things cost and all the service and expertise you get for your money.

    Plus they're wonderful to work with and so flexible. We were able to do a Skype call as a get-to-know-you before we signed the contract. Then my husband and I focused on the music we loved (instead a "don't play" list) and built our ideal timeline for the event. When we met face-to-face about two months before the big day, we were able to really work out all the kinks. And he'd worked our venue so he knew all the quirks about how the space works and how long it takes to get up the aisle and where to position his equipment. It was a whole list of things that I didn't have to worry about.

    At the wedding itself, Frank was a pillar of stability, knowing when each part of the event was supposed to take place and keeping tabs on wandering wedding party members. He had everybody dancing and all our guests have been asking for the playlist.

    My husband, Cody and I both love music but we were clueless when it came time to picking a dj for our wedding. We wanted someone who was easy to get along with and someone with whom we could connect with. Friendly entertainment was recommended to us and we couldn't be more thankful or blessed to have gone with them. Frank and Simmone were both wonderful to work with however my husband and I were really able to get to know Brandon as he was our dj and support throughout the entire process. Brandon was easy to work with, very encouraging, patient, kind and understanding as he was married not long ago himself. Brandon was quick to respond with any question we had. He was thorough and meticulous when it came to pronouncing names, laying out the timeline and making sure we had everything prepared so we could relax and enjoy. Brandon really did fit our expectations as he was very easy to get along with and absolutely someone whom Cody and I both connected with. He was more than flexible with us as we planned to have an outdoor wedding on a potentially rainy day. He was willing to move his equipment around weather pending to allow us to have our ideal wedding. Brandon felt more like a friend (with awesome music taste) than someone we just hired to do a basic job. Brandon went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. We would recommend Brandon to ANYONE looking for a dj who knows his stuff but has the humblest of hearts.

    Please hire Frank for your wedding! He is the best in the business! The first time we met with Frank we were beyond excited to have him DJ our wedding. Frank went above and beyond for us. I was a little disorganized and threw a bunch of things at him on the day of the wedding. He just smiled and said no big deal. He kept the dances floored PACKED all night. The next day people were asking if we made the list of music to play because they loved the music and I said "nope, that was all Frank". We also asked for no line dances and minimum 80s music. Frank honored our requests and people thought it was great they didn't have to the awkward Cupid shuffle. I can't say enough good things about Frank. He truly enjoys DJing and is not intrusive during your day. He lets you be the center of attention. Please, do yourself a favor and hire him!

    I have been remiss in not posting a review earlier because Frank Marsden was one of our favorite vendors of our daughters lovely wedding. The wedding was New Year's Eve 2017 and every interaction we had with Frank was wonderful. He understood that Jennifer wanted to get the "wedding necessities" over early in the night and then it to be just a big NYE party for our family and friends. He was a fabulous MC who moved the night along seamlessly. My daughter and my husband had a fun surprise dance planned for the father daughter dance and Frank helped her compile the bits of 3 or 4 songs into something that sounded like it was meant to be for that special night. We "met" with Frank over facetime twice before the wedding and he put into action every wish that my daughter had regarding the music for the wedding. He listented to the types of music she wanted played and more importantly they types that she did NOT want played. His lovely wife came along to assist the night of. Thank you to you both we would recommend you to our friends every time!
