    We didn't have to worry about a thing

    We worked with Scott Arrington for our wedding day, and it couldn’t have gone more smoothly! From our first call, we could tell he was on the same page with us with regard to the tone of our wedding and the kind of music we were looking for. Because I can’t help myself and organize everything to death, we provided him with a few playlists: one for the songs with purposes like what I’d be walking down the aisle to, entrance music, cake cutting song, etc., one with “must plays” for the reception, and another with music requested by our guests. We told him to use his best judgment with what to play when outside of the required songs, and he nailed it! We also told him not to accept song request from certain artists on our “do not play” list, and one of our wedding guests thought it would be fun to quiz him and occasionally ask to play one of those songs throughout the night. It came as no surprise that he never did play those songs and held up his end of the deal (and Scott - we’re sorry about that guest bugging you :)). We had a wonderful experience with Scott, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for music for their wedding day!

    BETTER than we could ask for

    I don’t even know where to begin raving about our experience with Murray Hill! From start to finish, from billing to coordinating to the wedding itself, it was incredible. DJ Brian Dulac DJ’d our wedding last weekend and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Brian kept our (huge) wedding party organized for all entrances and speeches, he worked directly with our day of coordinator to make sure all of the moving pieces stayed in sync, and best of all the dance floor was PACKED the entire night (and we had a crowd ranging in age from early 20’s ro early 80’s) We have heard from multiple guests who said our wedding was the most fun wedding they’ve been to! Brian, thank you for making our wedding better than we could have imagined and completely stress free for me!

    Picking a DJ is tough, there are many to choose from out there. What set Murray Hill aside when originally picking a company were the personal videos each DJ has on their website, these really let us get to know the DJ’a before picking who we were going to use.

    Marc Anthony Highly Recommended

    Marc Anthony was the DJ at our wedding and he was fantastic! When we first began planning our wedding, we didn't know if we wanted to have a DJ at all. However, we are thrilled that we ended up going with Marc Anthony and Murray Hill Talent. It was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. Marc was easy to work with, communicative, and understood the musical vibe we were going for -- with all our quirks included. He was also incredibly invaluable helping us transition throughout the night. From the moment he began playing music until the end of the night, the dance floor was packed with guests of all ages. He read the room flawlessly and kept guests engaged and excited - including our 90 year old grandfather who could not stop dancing! Marc is a true gentleman who deeply cares about his clients -- he was sincere, energetic, and emotionally invested in the festivities through the evening. He joined guests on the dance floor, and felt like part of the family by the end of the night!

    Professional, Responsive, Respectful -- and a Spot-On Playlist

    We had a great experience with Murray Hill Talent and DJ Scott Arrington, and would recommend to couples in search of wedding entertainment. Scott was willing to meet near our apartment in Boston, get to know us, learn about our approach to the wedding (laid back) and our likes and dislikes. He is very personable, reassuring, insightful, has enormous musical knowledge, great instincts, and puts you at ease. It's important to mention that we thought Murray Hill's quote to do the ceremony and reception was reasonable and proper in a wedding environment where pricing is exorbitant and generally insane. Leading up to the big day, Scott was prompt in answering e-mailed questions and requests, and got on the phone to make sure he understood our checklist and was all set for the ceremony/reception. The communication paid off because the music was perfect -- played at the right time, at the right volume... he read the crowd, gave people what they wanted to hear, honored our (few) requests, and kept guests dancing. Scott's clearly a humble guy, doesn't talk just to hear himself talk, is respectful of what's going on around him, and (to repeat) has sharp instincts. Best of all -- our guests complemented us on a classy evening and spot-on song list that led to maximum dancing. Can't thank MHT and DJ Scott enough!! They won't let you down.

    Excellent DJ!

    MurrayHill went above and beyond to DJ our wedding and it showed. Everyone loved the music choice, volume, timing, etc.. from walking down the aisle to the late night. We’d highly recommend them!

    Dakeya Christmas

    Dakeya is a great choice. As emcee he kept us steadily moving through each part of the ceremony with no hiccups. As DJ he perfectly blended our requests, avoided our "do not plays" and maintained the energy in the room perfectly throughout the entire night. A pleasure to work with

    We hired Closing Time via Murrary Hill Talent for our wedding on 9/22/18 and they were absolutely fantastic. They totally accommodated our preference in music and had all our guests on the dance floor all night. We also used them for ceremony and cocktail hour music and they were fantastic. We couldn't recommend them more!

    We loved Zeke!! He was a fabulous DJ, and everyone - from our parents to our friends to every age in between - talked about how great the music was. He did a great job with the background music during the cocktail reception and dinner hour, and then he read the room perfectly for the rest of the night. Everyone was dancing until midnight and, as we heard repeatedly, the only complaint people had was that there wasn't enough room on the dance floor. If you're looking for a DJ in the Boston area, we cannot recommend Zeke highly enough.

    DJ Marc Anthony was the best

    DJ Marc Anthony performed for our tented wedding reception and was absolutely phenomenal. I really cannot say enough good things about Marc. From the very beginning he was professional, responsive, and easy with work with. We had an Indian American fusion wedding with an eclectic mix of music (bhangra, pop, 80s, latin). Marc was 100% on board with our vision and really made it happen better than I could have ever though possible. He was the life of the party and kept everyone having a good time. Friends and family members from ages 10 to 90 were out on the dance floor for the whole time. He read the crowd well and the volume of the music was perfect. Thanks for an amazing wedding party! Would highly recommend for anyone!

    ​My wife and I were very late to the DJ hiring aspect of our wedding planning but we went through Murray Hill Talent who made it very effortless. They hooked us up with Trey Byrum who has just moved to the area and was still available on our wedding even on such short notice.

    I spoke with Trey on the phone and instantly knew he was the right guy for the job. Trey is clearly passionate about DJing and was very knowledgeable about how the big day would unfold and worked with us to make it all seamless.

    Trey was awesome on the wedding day, he supplied music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, the dinner and dance floor and we loved every second of it. His taste in music and seamless transitions were awesome and kept everyone on the dance floor. We can not recommend Trey enough, he was perfect!​

    Working with Murray Hill Talent was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Tom was extremely communicative, responsive, and helpful as we selected a string group for our ceremony and reception, fielding a ton of questions from us before we moved forward with a group.

    We selected Infinity Strings through Murray Hill Talent and were blown away by their professionalism, performance, and overall personalities. We were looking for something like the "Vitamin String Quartet" experience and they nailed it. You could tell how excited they were to be playing at our wedding and to really knock it out of the park for us. They were extremely accommodating, even playing a song we selected last minute, with a personal touch on top.

    I highly recommend both Murray Hill Talent and Infinity Strings for any event! Thanks so much all!

    The Flip Side was honestly one of, if not the best wedding bands we’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing. From the moment we contacted them about playing at our wedding to the last song they sang, the experience was amazing. We live in Chicago and were coming to the Boston area for our wedding, we saw a few YouTube videos of the Flip Side and we can say unequivocally they are great online but surreal when seen in person. The song list they gave us was extensive, as they are extremely talented and when we chose the songs we wanted they performed each song to perfection. Our guests fed off their energy and they fed off our guests energy.
    If we had to do it over, The Flip Side would be our choice 1000 out of 1000 times. At the end of the night our guests were left wanting more and wanting to dance more than ever!

    Flipside was seriously incredible and we got so many compliments about how talented and energizing they were. I've never seen a dance floor stay so full throughout the night, and that was exactly what we were hoping for :) They truly made our wedding an epic, fun, and memorable night and we had such a blast dancing! They made it easy to choose songs, were accommodating to our requests, and I would 100% recommend them to anyone.

    Flipside played our wedding in August 2018, and they were definitely the highlight of our event! We knew they were going to be great after having a chance to meet with Corin before the wedding - who was fun, easy to work with, and happens to be an extremely knowledgable musician. We had a hard time picking a band when we were planning or wedding, and we are so pleased that we ended up with Flipside. They also happen to be very accommodating, and handled some last minute changes on our end without any problems. (As a side note, we also used their uplighting which I would recommend). Our guests couldn't stop raving about the band, and we are still getting phone calls from family and friends who can't stop talking about them!

    We had an excellent experience using Murray Hill Talent for a DJ and ceremony audio for our wedding at the State Room in Boston. Corin was our contact and was excellent and flexible in adapting to our needs, and DJ Marc Anthony (Marc Mendes) was our DJ. He was excellent, and we couldn't recommend him highly enough. He was organized and professional, made the process extremely easy, and did a great job with music selection and atmosphere throughout the evening.

    I cannot say enough about our AMAZING team from Murray Hill Talent, specifically Tom and Scott!! We used them for ceremony instrumental music, reception DJ, and uplighting, and oh my goodness were they incredible! Tom (our guitarist) was our first point of contact and there are no words for how accommodating and kind he is. He was EXTREMELY responsive (he would seriously email us back within an hour), so kind, SO helpful, and answered any and all questions we had (I must have emailed at least Tom 20+ times leading up to our day and he was always so helpful and happy). The ceremony music was incredible. We had Tom on the guitar and a violinist and as soon as I started walking down the isle and heard the song we had picked out begin, I immediately felt a sense of comfort. They were truly amazing. Our DJ was Scott and again, I cannot speak highly enough about how incredible he is! Scott was so helpful with song choice and made us feel completely at ease, he took all the stress out of anything music related. He was super fun during intros and made our wedding the giant dance party that we wanted! We HIGHLY recommend using Murray Hill Talent!

    We worked with Dakeya Christmas. He was awesome. The best!
    We needed some mix of english/american music, but also music of the country where the bride was born and Dakeya did a perfect mix so guests from both countries had fun. He was very patient with us as some of our choices we sent to him last minute, he did everything perfectly on the night of. Music was such a natural part of our event which means there were 0 mistakes made!
    Dakeya was the best choice we could have made! Professional, on-time, pleasant, good vibes, great advice on music. Thank you, Dakeya!

    We used DJ Josh Nachbar and he could not have been better! The dance floor was rocking all night! He helped us to coordinate speeches and get all of the equipment neccessary for those. He played music for cocktail hour, dinner, and the dance party-everything was great. He kept the evening running seamlessly and we couldn’t have asked for more. Multiple people kept commenting on how packed the dance floor was too. We had the best night and Josh was an integral part of it!

    Cory and DJ Scott were amazing to work with and we were so lucky to have them. We looked at a number of vendors, but it became clear early on that Murray Hill Talent's team was our first choice. Throughout our conversations with them, they talked about the weddings they had performed at, and explained to us what we already felt: that the wedding day was about the bride and groom, not about making the reception a show. They made us confident that they would do their part in ensuring the day of went smoothly throughout.

    During the reception, Scott guided everyone through the various toasts, blessings, and announcements, which put our minds at ease and allowed us to focus our attention on each other. Leading up to the day of, when we were discussing the music for the reception, Scott asked us general questions in terms of music that we like, songs or genres that we would like to avoid, and let us know that he could take it from there and wouldn't be working off of some predetermined playlist. We were able to put our trust in him and everything flowed seamlessly throughout. During our multi-course meal, he held everything to classics and jazz as we had hoped, and when it came time for it, he was able to get just about everyone there onto the dance floor (even the grandparents!).

    Scott played a significant role in the our wedding day; one that we will never forget. Our recommendation to anyone looking is that if you have the chance to work with Cory and Murray Hill Talent, then you should jump at the chance, because they will make sure that your day is the best it can be.

    Looking back at our wedding, the single best thing we hear from everyone at our wedding was that “Redline was INCREDIBLE!” We could not agree more. After just the first three songs of the evening, our expectations were blown away. They set the tone for the entire evening at the beginning and it only got better and better after.

    The night closed with one of our all-time favorite songs getting everyone up on the dance floor to conclude our magical evening. Redline truly was the glue that held all the wonderful parts of our celebration together.

    Leading up to the wedding, Ken was extremely helpful, thoughtful, and very attentive to all the details. In retrospect, we could not have imagined such a special and fun night without Redline performing. We wholeheartedly recommend Redline for any event and anyone looking to have an epic night.

    HIGHLY recommend Murray Hill! We had Tom Pendergast play guitar during our cocktail hour which was lovely. They also did our uplighting in the ballroom which was perfect! And then the real party started with Scott Arrington our DJ. The number of people who remarked on how awesome our DJ was--insane!! No one wanted to leave the dance floor. Even my parents friends commented to them how he was the best DJ they've ever heard, with the mix of music he played from all eras, and how he kept people of all ages on the dance floor. It was the BEST time thanks to Scott!! He also dressed better than some of our wedding guests :)

    We had Brian Delac DJ our wedding. He was excellent to work with, he was responsive via email or text, asked us all the right questions ahead of time, was there well ahead of the wedding reception to set up, and was absolutely great throughout the night playing the music we asked for mixed in with what he thought would work well and people literally never left the dance floor. Highly recommend using Murray Hill Talent and Brian Delac specifically!
