    We are so thrilled that we chose Green Line Talent to DJ our wedding day. We have gotten so many compliments on our DJ, Zach, who killed it. Zach was so receptive to what music we wanted and actually played what we wanted, unlike many wedding DJs we have seen at other weddings. An actual quote from our friend, 'I went to a wedding this weekend but was not as much fun, they obviously didn't have your DJ.' If you want to dance all night with your friends and family, ask for Zach!!

    DJ Zach was great! He was communicative, flexible and made it a point to get as much input from us as possible before our big day. Zach played a variety of music; getting all ages out on the dance floor. We were having a blast with all of our family and friends and Zach was able to enhance the energy with great tunes. Yay for Zach and Green Line!

    The perfect dance party

    My husband and I had planned a small low-key wedding but we did want to have a great time and have a proper dance party at the end of the night. We decided pretty late in the game to hire a professional DJ. Despite the short notice, the people at Green Line Talent were incredibly helpful and very responsive. Our wedding DJ Gabe was very easy to talk to and on our wedding day it was clear that he had really understood what we were going for. Even with some very particular requests such as Belgian and Indian songs, he didn't disappoint. He worked them seamlessly into an already perfect playlist. Not only did my husband and I appreciate this, all of our guest were on the dance floor too. We definitely got the dance party we had hoped for. One of the best choices we made for our big day!

    Gabe was the perfect choice for our wedding. We are very big music fans and were nervous that our wedding DJ might not understand our specific needs and choices we had planned for the event. However, after meeting with Gabe we knew we were in great hands and he worked closely with us to make sure he was creating the vision we had in mind. With so many things on our plate during the planning process he was extremely patient and flexible and was willing to work around our schedule every step of the way. At the wedding itself he played exactly what we discussed and did a great job start to finish from our wild entry to our quirky traditions. He read the room well and gave everyone a night to remember. If you are a music lover and want your special night to represent your individuality then look no further than Green Line Talent and our favorite DJ, Gabe Cozzens.

    We used Green Line to book a musician for our ceremony and cocktail hour and a DJ for our reception. Brandon Reisdorf played guitar for the ceremony and cocktail hour. He learned multiple songs for us, was an exceptionally good communicator, and was highly organized. He was absolutely fantastic and exceeded my expectations. He created a beautiful and fun atmosphere. Gabe Cozzens was our DJ for the reception. I told him that I wanted him to play as many songs as possible in his 3 hour set, and holy cow, did he deliver! Everyone was coming up to me telling me how great the DJ was and how fun the dance floor was. One friend said it was like a powerhour of his favorite songs. It was seriously a blast. I highly recommend Green Line for booking your wedding music!

    Loved, loved, loved this DJ! You have to hear his work for sure! The music was never, too loud or overpowering. During dinner the music was only "dinner music" and beautiful. He totally worked the crowd and for the first time ever the dance floor was packed the whole reception! Excellent and everyone complimented the music!

    I can not begin to say enough great things about Gabe. We had a few conversations about our music style and Gabe ran with it and blew us away. Some of the music we are into is a little less popular and I thought I would have to get him all the tracks and just did not end up having time to do that. BUT Gabe did amazing. He found all of our favorites based on the list we sent him of our favorite artists and he played our slower jams during cocktail hour and dinner and mixed it in with some awesome jams for the reception. He read the crowd so well. Never have I been to a wedding where the entire party, and no I don't mean the just the bridesmaids and groomsmen, but all of the guests at the entire wedding is singing and dancing to bohemian rhapsody. Older folks, young folks - my DAD! It was incredible. I also can not believe the timing on the music for the ceremony recessional. We didn't even have time to go over a que for the music. He just listened to the song, and went with it and man, it was PERFECT!

    DJ Kyle was absolutely amazing. My wife and I used him a couple of weeks back and were blown away by what he did, as were all of our guests. We have a wide range of taste in music, from country, motown, classic rock, top 40s, you name it we requested it to be a part of our special day because that's who we are. We were concerned until we heard it, WOW. It was a blast and the next song brought even more energy to the party. Also, he was extremely professional, he dressed completely appropriate, and his set up was simply yet elegant to match the day. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him to everyone!

    Kyle Dj'd our wedding, and he really crushed it. We picked him from his sample on the website. I'm not a dancer, and his mix had me dancing around the kitchen while we were cooking dinner.

    Contracting was easy, he showed up and delivered everything as promised.

    Ive heard from guest after guest about how much fun they had dancing, and how the DJ pumped out hit after hit.

    I'll definitely be recommending him and Green Line Talent to anyone who asks!

    Thanks for helping to make our special night super fun!

    Elissa DJed our wedding on June 10, 2018, and she had everyone on the dance floor for the entire night. When we reached out to her originally, she was very communicative and offered to Skype with us so we could tell her about our wedding, our musical tastes, and what we were looking for. From start to finish she was professional, prompt in her responses, and super supportive. The day of the wedding, we didn't have to worry about a thing. Elissa handled all of the intros, toasts, and surprise dances with precision. She played all of the songs we loved and wanted to hear, and was able to read the crowd perfectly. We had many people come up to us and say the music was awesome and they had never danced so much at a wedding. I definitely recommend her as a DJ. Elissa, thank you for making our wedding reception a blast!

    Green Line Talent was a fantastic company to work with! We had several meetings with our DJ, Jean-Luc, during the wedding-planning process, and he was always very attentive and personable. Jean-Luc worked hand-in-hand with our various coordinators to make sure he knew the setup of the reception venue, and kept people on the dance floor all night! Thank you so much for a great experience!

    Selecting Green Line Talent for our wedding DJ was by far one of the easiest decisions in our entire planning process! From the first inquiry to the post-event follow up, Erica & Elissa were extremely responsive, professional and fun to work with. My husband and I ultimately worked with DJ Gabe and it was a perfect pairing - he was calm, listened to our preferences and was able to get everyone out of their seat and dancing wildly for our midday wedding :) Truly a great experience and will use them again should another special occasion arise!

    We are so glad to have worked with Green Line Talent for our wedding this fall!! At booking, Elissa thoroughly answered all of my questions and sent me to the Green Line Talent website where you can view bios of their DJs and listen to sample mixes. My fiance and I got a kick out of listening to the different mixes and chose to work with Gabe as our wedding DJ.

    Gabe was awesome!! He was very professional throughout the entire event and we have received so many compliments from our friends and family on how great the music was!! He played different varieties of songs throughout the night to set the mood for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. He played the music for our ceremony as well and did a great job with the timing. We HIGHLY recommend booking Green Line and Gabe for your wedding!!! Everyone had so much fun and the dance floor was packed all night!!

    Gabe did a great job with the whole process. He was calm and friendly during the planning process and the day of the wedding. Things went smoothly the whole night -- even when my best man jumped the gun with the toasts. Gabe was able to kept things flowing and rearrange the schedule to get everyone fed in time. After making introductions for dinner and toasts, Gabe opened the dance floor and set the mic down to focus on playing the music. He didn't try to be the center of the show, and played the role of DJ, not MC.

    As far as planning went, we gave pretty loose guidance with a list of bands and songs we like, and he was able to put together a great set. Our friends thought it was a great representation of our tastes, and the dance floor was full the whole night.

    Erica and Elissa were great with managing the logistics -- prompt and friendly the whole time.

    If I were to have another wedding, I'd use them again without a doubt. You won't be disappointed either.

    Elissa was amazing!!! She DJ'ed our wedding in NYC this past July and was the perfect blend of chill and professional. She really took the time to understand what type of music we wanted, and things turned out so perfectly. We got so many compliments about how great our DJ was, and we had so much fun dancing all night. She was organized, thorough, accommodating, and she kept us on track when we were being spacey about the planning. Overall a joy to work with and couldnt recommend her more highly!!

    DJ Gabe was an absolute joy to work with. We had at least three calls and one meeting in person leading up to our big day and he provided a very handy spreadsheet that we had plenty of time to fill out to be sure "must plays" and "no plays" were all covered. On our big day he did a great job with announcements and moving things along in a timely fashion. He had all of our guests on the dance floor from the moment it opened until closing time. Would highly recommend Gabe and Green Line talent to anyone looking for a great party!

    Elissa from The Beat Train was a phenomenal DJ. From the first time we spoke to her over skype to the time the last song of the evening was played, Elissa had us covered. She really got to know us and our style and taste in music, from guilty pleasures to group favorites, and wonderful memories, which she put together into an amazing night of song and dance. She was always professional and genuinely interested in making us happy, which she absolutely delivered on. We can't recommend her enough, if you're considering The Beat Train or Elissa you can't go wrong.

    DJ Elissa was fantastic! We knew we wanted to avoid the overbearing DJ that played all the stereotypical tracks, and Elissa delivered on that and then some. From the very first conversation, she was totally on top of things and easy to work with. She took the time to understand our music tastes, understand our crowd, and understand the vibe we wanted. The day and night of, she was subtle and professional, kept everything moving along, and played an unbelievable mix that perfectly represented everything we talked about. It's been 2 months since the wedding and we still get comments from our friends and family about how great the music was! Elissa made our night even more incredible than we had hoped!

    Green Line Talent and DJ Kyle are wonderful! Our wedding was at Lacuna Artist Lofts in mid-August. We needed to find a DJ to provide music for our ceremony, a microphone for our officiant, and music for our cocktail hour that were held on the rooftop, then music for our reception inside. Green Line Talent was so responsive and reasonably priced when we were looking for a DJ. About a month before our wedding, we met with DJ Kyle to discuss our music taste and share ideas of songs we wanted played during different parts of the event. DJ Kyle did an amazing job of reading the room and kept the dance floor busy all night!

    We went back and forth on whether or not we wanted a DJ for our wedding (too many times we've seen some awful DJs who talk so much and crack corny jokes), but ultimately decided it was the best option for us. Elissa made all our worries about having a DJ disappear! She was completely professional and only made announcements when we specified. From the planning process to the actual day of the wedding, Elissa was professional, responsive, and kept us focused/on-task. She took our requests and no-play songs seriously — we truly felt like the music was representative of us at our wedding! Everyone raved about it afterward.
