    We had a terrific experience from beginning to end with JLK and Gary Lucca. They offer a full spectrum of pricing options (based on experience) and we ended up choosing Gary for both the ceremony music AND the wedding. Best. Decision. Ever. THANK YOU is not nearly enough for the memories that Gary created. Every single minute of the ceremony and reception was absolutely incredible...from the recorded vows to the custom dance mixes, an unmatched level of professionalism and the fact that there was not a SINGLE minute that the dance floor wasn't packed. We received (and continue to receive) so many compliments from the guests that this was the best, most touching and "personalized" wedding they have ever been to - all made possible by Gary. He worked with ALL of our "visions" and requests, and made them come to life...NOT an easy task...but executed to perfection! Thank you for making our wedding TRULY the "best day of our life"...how we wish there was a "replay" button! We are so very grateful. Once again...THANK YOU!

    From the personal touches (vows in our first dance song and "hello" from our Uncle Pat who couldn't attend) to Gary's personality, JLK Events is the best company for entertainment! In my experience, other DJ's just play the music and come off awkward and forced when speaking over the microphone. Gary not only played the music, but added personal touches to special songs and was very personable with all of our guests. He is a DJ that all of our guests will remember! The company works around your wants and needs to make sure that your big day is everything you ever dreamed of! We still have people calling us to rave about Gary! You will not be disappointed with JLK Events!

    Book it...you won't regret it!

    Henry was nothing but class! Great guy to work with and would use him again in a heartbeat. Brought great energy and enthusiasm to the reception and made sure to include everyone as much as he could. Really played some great music as well and got everyone dancing the whole night. Echoing what I said above about the music. Henry really listened to our wants and stuck with those throughout the night as well as adding in some of his own flavor that went over very will with our crowd. We danced as long as we were allowed too and the party stayed on the dance floor almost all night! All of my family and friends kept commenting how they had soo much fun and and absolute blast of a party. With everyone traveling from afar, its nice to be able to provide a great time and see everyone enjoying themselves so much. Definitely a party that we will all remember!

    Gary does a great job and makes the ceremony flow so well. Of course, the music after is the very best!

    Working with Gary was amazing. We feel like we have made a friend for life! There were plenty of phone calls and emails to make sure every detail was perfect and just how we wanted it. Several guests commented how great our DJ was. Everyone has a great time and enjoyed the special "touches" that were put into the reception. At one point I don't think there was a dry eye in the room! Thank you Gary for your hard work and for keeping the party partyin!

    We used JLK for the wedding DJ and for the uplighting on the brick walls. Both turned out great. The DJ, Tiffani, worked with us over the phone and in person before the wedding to have a timeline for all of her introductions, special songs, and the overall vibe of the music (dance party!) and the most important songs to play. She added in last minute requests without an issue and I danced all night long! Very happy with them!

    Definitely book JLK for your DJ and lighting needs. We chose Gary as our DJ and he surpassed our expectations! Through the planning stages, Gary kept in touch with us and was very accommodating and made everything easy. He even made a mash up of a traditional daddy/daughter song with a backstreet boys song and sent it to me beforehand so my dad and I could practice our surprise dance. Gary did the music and sound for our ceremony and it was beautiful. Him and his assistant, Billy, also did the music for cocktail hour and then made a very smooth transition into the reception. Gary is a wonderful MC as well as being an amazing DJ. The music was great! Gary played as many of our requests as possible while mixing in a few guest requests that fit within our taste of music. He did a great job switching songs and keeping people of all age groups on the dance floor. We got so many compliments on how awesome Gary was, which was evident by the fact that the dance floor was completely full! Many people told us that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to. This was largely thanks to Gary running the whole night flawlessly! We HIGHLY recommend Gary and the JLK team!

    Henry Race was the best DJ/MC we have ever seen. He was absolutely amazing! He made our wedding the night of our dreams. The dance floor was packed the entire night. He was able to get everyone up and excited to be dancing. He was so kind and thoughtful throughout the planning process. I was blown away with JLK Events and would use them again in a heartbeat. I highly recommend them! They will exceed your expectations! And Henry will make your wedding a night that all of your guests will remember for the rest of their lives. Truly, he was exceptional!

    JLK was great from day 1. We are so happy that we went with them. From meeting Jamie and Liz on the first day we knew we were making the right decision. Liz was even great on the phone and email prior to our meeting. Very prompt at responding and answering initial questions. Then when we met our DJ, Gary, and we had no doubt he would make our day the best. He really went above and beyond and added in little details that made a huge impact. Many guests have talked about how great he was and that he did things they have never seen before at a wedding and they loved it. He made our day truly special. I don't want to give anything away, but trust me you will not have any regrets. We will use JLK again in the future if the opportunity arises. Thank you JLK!

    It's very simple. If you want the best for your loved ones (in this case our daughter) you should hire the best and let them do what they do. In this case Liz and Jamie of JLK Events met with our daughter, asked the questions that they needed to listened to what Mackenzie wanted, and the rest is history. Their excursion was flawless. There was not one time that we had to ask or tell them anything. All we had to do was enjoy this wonderful day. It did help that we had a Great location Sea Pines Country Club, with Jerry Vaughan at the helm, and a Great Photographer, Whitney Boring from W Photography.

    JLK was so above and beyond on everything! I would highly recommend the photo booth to everyone, the book we got afterwards is something we will treasure forever and everyone had so much fun using the photo booth! Our lights were beautiful! The best thing was our DJ Gary though. Our wedding would not have been the same without him! He not only played great music but he made sure the whole wedding and reception ran smoothly. On top of all of that he included a variety of special surprises (I won't say what they are so you can surprised when you book your wedding with them) that was so touching made such great memories! So many guests came up to us and said they had never seen a DJ do such unique and awesome touches to the wedding! Thank you Gary and ALL of JLK so being AMAZING!

    JLK is extremely professional and does everything above and beyond. Everything from Gary (our DJ) to the lighting to the Photo Booth was amazing. We are thrilled we decided to use JLK to make our wedding the day of our dreams.

    We used JLK events for our wedding and our DJ was Henry Race. We couldn't be more pleased with the service provided. From setting everything up with Liz in the beginning, to everything that Henry did was amazing! Very professional, great lighting, nothing too over the top. Henry kept the reception very organized, without taking too much control of the party. Our guests had so much fun, and continue to talk about the great variety of music that we had. If we ever need a DJ in the future we will definitely call JLK events and use their services. And ask for Henry if he's available.

    We used JLK for lighting and DJ and were so incredibly pleased. Gary was our DJ and he worked hard throughout our wedding process to ensure all of our needs were met. He is great at what he does! We had so many compliments on our DJ!
    We also had an outdoor wedding with a last minute tent. JLK was extremely flexible and made the cafe lighting under the tent look amazing! The are extremely professional and are very willing to work with you.
    I would highly recommend for both lighting and DJ, it is awesome that they offer both of these services! 5 starts! Awesome place!

    DJ Henry is the best! He was extremely flexible from the beginning. He didn't just play music, he really took an interest in us and went out of his way to make our wedding special. He was enthusiastic and fun without being cheesy, he read the crowd's energy well and played requests with a smile. We really enjoyed working with him!

    We probably suggested more music than most guests do, and Henry observed all our requested and complemented with other great music that matched our tastes. He was very nice, went out of his way to meet beforehand and discuss the event. Obviously has more wedding experience than we did, and his familiarity/knowledge was quite helpful. Our dance floor was not particularly big but they did a great job accommodating the space.

    The hardest part that we probably didn't think about was the great organization of the night which the DJ plays a huge part in, leading the transition from one event of the night to the next. I did not think of things like "how do we get all the guests to gather for the cake cutting" or "how do we have everyone make room for the first dance" - and Henry made all that seamless.

    My husband and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about working with JLKevents! We rented some cafe lights and orbs from them for our outdoor dancefloor and it looked absolutely beautiful! They were also super quick to answer any questions I had and to provide me with quotes for all sorts of different lighting options. They were super professional from the very beginning and did great work!! Highly recommend!

    Being able to work with JLK on a professional level I knew that I was in great hands but being on the other side of the coin and experiencing this myself I was blown away but the patience and knowledge that Gary gave us. He was truly amazing and our day would not have been the same without him or his team!

    Gary Lucca was recommended to me by a friend, who said "Gary is the best DJ on Hilton Head!", and boy was she right! Gary added personal touches to our entire wedding and made the planning so easy! He guided us though the important planning process and was incredibly flexible, professional and just all around awesome. I would HIGHLY recommend using Gary as your DJ for any event. He had everyone on the dance floor the entire night! Thank you Gary!

    We thought that they went above and beyond in meeting our expectations. There were a few unexpected efforts that were performed that made the event even better than we had hoped. We would recommend them to anyone at anytime. GREAT JOB

    JLK events is what made my entire reception. Gary Lucca was so organized and made sure everything was Done perfect! From gathering up different songs, putting together a fun and active "last dance" song for us all, as well as all the time-effort-and ideas I couldn't have chosen anyone better! Thank you so much for making our special day so memorable!

    My now wife was a nervous wreck when we were looking for entertainment, Gary talked on the phone to her for about 30 minutes and she was a new person. Made the last 2 weeks before the wedding a breeze.
