If you're looking for a DJ for your event, look no further! Karl and the other staff of Pulse Entertainment have absolutely exceeded my expectations! I sent an email to Karl from Pulse Entertainment on a Sunday evening, not expecting to receive a response until Monday during business hours, but to my surprise I got an immediate response answering some of my questions. Even better, I had a phone conversation with Karl that Sunday evening around 7PM, and he described his business in detail and answered all of my questions. When he said they had one more open slot for the day of our wedding, I immediately reserved it that night -- talk about making a great first impression! Fast forward a few weeks to before our wedding, Karl emailed a super helpful schedule template for the day of our wedding and asked about our song preferences. We had another phone conversation going over the name pronunciations of my family and friends, as well as finalizing the timeline for the big day. On our wedding day, Karl kept us on track with the schedule and based on how the day was going, we moved up our toasts earlier so as to not have a lull in the night. The music during the rehearsal was perfect. Our guests were on their feet dancing the entire night -- the dance floor was never empty! Our music request was a little vague, requesting popular dance pop music and 80s songs, but Pulse Entertainment did a phenomenal job in selecting songs for our wedding. Pulse Entertainment was so easy to work with and very accommodating of all of our needs. If you book with Pulse, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!Sent on 09/18/2018
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Hi Mikki - Thank you SO SO much for the amazing review! We really appreciate you taking the time to write all of your comments out. It brings us great pleasure that we were able to keep both of you so happy and help execute everything flawlessly. Best wishes to the two of you!

Affordable, Professional DJ in DMV Area!
Karl was a great person work with. He personalizes the playlist and he knows what to do! Not just about the music to play, but he provides a whole day schedule with details. You can customize the schedule and he will adjust it quickly. His response time is really quick, so you don't have to wait several days to get an answer for your question! We had guest performers in our reception... and Karl managed really well and everyone loved all the songs he played. If you want to have LIT wedding with chill & cool DJ, he's the one!Sent on 09/17/2019

Pulse Entertainment was great! They listened to everything we wanted to change and were able to incorporate all the changes so smoothly. Along with being super flexible when we asked to move our timeline up. I would definitely recommend Pulse Entertainment if you are looking for a DJ!Sent on 08/30/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks April! It was a pleasure working with both of you! We love being flexible for all of our clients!

So Accommodating and Fun!
This was one of my favorite vendors! Karl made me feel at ease from the very beginning when he took the time to call me and listen to my wedding vision. I was a very chill "whatever you think is best" type of bride and Karl did a great job making suggestions and helping me organize the wedding. He even provided an open air photo booth at a reduced rate! The photo booth was awesome, but it did have some problems and the line was sometimes pretty long while they worked them out. However, the price I paid and the fact that it was one of their first seasons using it made up for it. The pictures looked great and I used to them for my guest book!Sent on 09/05/2019
The day of the wedding, Karl was so accommodating. I would run up to him all night long requesting songs, making small changes and asking him to make announcements. He did all this with such ease that the guests never knew I was making changes! Everyone danced the whole night away!
Just go ahead and book Karl and his team, you won't regret it!
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Hi Kirstyn! Thank you for your delightful review! We were happy that we could help you with suggestions and organization to make wedding planning a breeze!

Look no further!
Words can’t even express how amazing Karl and Pulse Entertainment was for our wedding last week! We had a few minor hiccups in our wedding and Karl rolled right along with the punches. We did’t get as much time on the dance floor as I would have liked which is definitely not Karl’s fault but the time we did have on the dance floor was nothing short of amazing because of all the great music he was playing! If you are looking for a DJ for your next event then look no further than Pulse entertainment!Sent on 07/29/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks so much for the amazing review, Conni! We really appreciate it and we wish you two the best! It was a pleasure working with both of you.
Eunice · Married on 07/20/2019
Great experience! Highly recommend!!
Karl was incredible to work with. He was responsive, he worked with me before and throughout the wedding, and he was a dream with coordinating everything. His prices are MORE than fair, he is great with transitioning music. and he was great with making sure the guests danced! Our wedding coordinator disappeared half way through the wedding, and Karl jumped in to coordinate the father daughter dance, toasts, bouquet toss, and even cake cutting. 100000% recommend Pulse entertainment! Our guests had a blast and I had such a great time thanks to the DJ Karl!!!Sent on 07/21/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks Eunice!! We are so happy that we helped to make your special day so memorable. We are really sorry that your wedding coordinator disappeared, but we are glad that we were able to take over for her since being flexible is one of the most important parts of our job. We wish you two the best!
Megan · Married on 07/05/2019
Karl and his crew was amazing to work with! I was most nervous about booking a DJ because music can make or break a wedding. Karl was extremely professional, listened to everything we wanted, and executed our vision perfectly as our dance floor was packed all night! When looking at other services, mics and extra equipment are extra, but Pulse brought everything we needed for one flat rate! They made the process extremely simple and we could not have asked for a better DJ for our big day!Sent on 07/21/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Megan, we really appreciate your review! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wedding. Like you mentioned, we include all equipment for a flat rate as to never nickel and dime customers. Thanks again!
Becky · Married on 06/21/2019
Perfect Wedding Day!
Karl and his team at Pulse are fantastic!! They were extremely helpful, thorough, and courteous. Karl was very easy to communicate with through email or telephone. I'm a very type-A person, and felt at ease working with Pulse Entertainment. I appreciated them taking so much time to be able to talk through ideas to help plan out our day-of timeline. A few weeks before the wedding, we added a photo booth to our wedding plans and it all came together beautifully!! It was such a hit! Pulse Entertainment was very professional and helped make our wedding day perfect- I cannot recommend them enough!!Sent on 07/01/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thank you, Becky, for the amazing review! We loved working with you to help make your day so special! We wish you and Nate the best!

Great, local DJ!
Karl and Pulse Weddings were my favorite vendor. They did a photobooth for us, DJed our ceremony and reception, and MC-ed a lot of the event.They were extremely responsive, flexible, organized, and reasonable. Honestly I can't recommend them enough- especially if you're someone that needs organization and doesn't like hounding vendors. In addition, they are a great value for the DC area which is very difficult to find (they were by far the most reasonable I found for both DJ/MC/photobooth without sacrificing quality). Seriously if you're looking for a DJ that goes above and beyond, definitely book with Karl and Pulse!Sent on 08/08/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks, Joslin! We really appreciate your kind words! We are so happy that you two had a great time!
Cameron · Married on 06/09/2019

Karl and his team did a great job at our wedding! They ensured they would pronounce everyone's name correctly!! They also were able to quick change the schedule when something came up. Would hire again!Sent on 06/17/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks for the review, Cameron! We try to be as adapting to last minute changes as possible, so we’re really happy that we met your expectations for this.

Just a truly awesome experience !

Alyce · Married on 05/26/2019
May wedding at Rose Hill Manor
I can not say enough about how flexible, professional and respectful the DJs from Pulse were. It was easy to get them the songs we wanted, discuss the best solutions for the party details, and the day of they were so flexible with all the little changes. Karl played great music, and our dance floor was full all night. The last hour we had la hora loca (crazy hour), where we passed out glow sticks, funny hats and glasses, and danced the hardest with the best music. We had the djs on the balcony and it made it a true party experience! Guests have been saying they don't usually dance, and they danced all night. Thank you Karl and Pulse for the amazing services!Sent on 05/28/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Your wedding was such a fun to participate in, Alyce! It means so much that you chose Pulse Entertainment and we want to say thank you for the stellar review!
Angella · Married on 05/25/2019
Great full service DJ!
Karl, the President of Pulse, has been amazing since our first encounter. My best friend (the bride) talked to him about the different options and decided to go with Pulse without speaking to any of the other vendors we found. He answered emails promptly, even late at night, and he was very accommodating of the bride's wishes. The lighting they installed inside added a nice ambience and the sound/quality of the speakers were great. We were behind schedule, but Karl was good about adjusting to our needs/changes and coordinating with our venue coordinator to make sure everything went smoothly. Everyone got down on the dance floor and it was lit until closing time. The price was fair, especially for this area, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!Sent on 05/28/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Tina was so lucky to have you helping her plan out her special day, Angella! It was amazing working with both of you and we appreciate how on top of things and detail oriented you were. Thank you so much for the review!!
Dawn · Married on 05/18/2019
Easy, flexible, responsive
It was a pleasure working with Karl/Pulse for my daughters wedding. We had a few bumps in the road during the planning process, however Karl did what was needed to quickly rectify the problems. Karl is very informative, friendly and easy to work with. They did a great job the day of the wedding, we utilized them for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music. It was all pulled off seamlessly. Thank you for being a part of our special day and making it one to remember!Sent on 05/30/2019
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Thanks for the amazing review, Dawn! We hope that your daughter had a blast and will remember her wedding night for the rest of her life!

Outstanding wedding DJ
Amazing DJ for a very affordable price. I was extremely pleased. Karl (the president) is very responsive and pleasant and was always there for any questions or concerns I had before the big day.

So glad we chose Pulse!
We are so glad we chose Pulse to DJ our wedding. Karl was super helpful and responsive through the entire planning process, so I felt like I had nothing to worry about going into my wedding day. My day-of coordinator ended up being a little MIA on my wedding day, so I was glad Karl had been so prepared with asking for and understanding our entire timeline. He did a great job of keeping things on track, and everyone loved the music! Thank you!Sent on 11/07/2018
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Hi Caitlin, thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! We are really sorry about your day-of coordinator, but delighted to hear that our staff were able to pick up the slack and help you rest assured that everything would be kept on track. We wish both of you the best!
Stephanie · Married on 10/27/2018
Best DJ ever!
Karl and his team at Pulse Entertainment were a major reason behind our wedding being such a success! Karl was there through planning the schedule, choosing the music, creating the atmosphere, and everything in between. We had a coordinator for just the day of so all the rest of the planning was left up to me. I had never planned a wedding before and I really worried about having a dead dance floor and the schedule running smoothly with no weird, boring gaps. We also attended a wedding in the past where no announcements were made for anything so we missed the cake cutting and late night snack. Karl was amazing at helping adjust the schedule so it ran perfectly. And on the day of, he and his team worked amazingly with my coordinator to make sure everything was on time and at no point was anyone wondering what was going on. The ceremony was in a separate space and the timing and volume was absolutely perfect for all our ceremony music. For the reception, I gave Karl way too many song suggestions that were all over the place and he assured me that he totally understood the style we wanted played at different points throughout the day. He played all our must have songs, avoided all our Do Not Plays (to the chagrin of my Pitbull-loving cousin, lol), and played even more songs that we hadn’t thought that we love and fit perfectly. Everything was the perfect volume, too! I had also been worried about our venue not having a good atmosphere for dancing (too bright with all the lights on, too dark with them dimmed) and Karl was able to bring some uplighting that really transformed the space. Throughout the wedding day, I had no worries at all about the timing, music, and schedule because of Karl. Our coordinator said it was the easiest job she ever had due to the schedule being perfect (thanks to Karl) and our guests haven’t stopped talking about how amazing the music was.Sent on 02/14/2019
I really cannot say enough about Pulse Entertainment, they are amazing at what they do!
Pulse Entertainment's reply:Wow Stephanie!! We were blown away by your amazing review! Thank you so much! It means the world to us that we were able to be such a part of your special day. Working with both of you was amazing and we wish you two the absolute best future together!

Flexible and easy
Karl was super flexible and helped us get everything we wanted in our budget. They nailed the timing of our ceremony songs and were able to pull clips of some hard to find songs we wanted to use. When our timeline got pushed back on the day of, he maximized the time we had on the dance floor and had everyone on their feet!Sent on 11/23/2018

Could not have imagined using anyone else!
We used Karl and his team to DJ on wedding in September. Karl went above and beyond in helping me coordinate the transition between his company and the late night band we hired. He spent quite a bit of time getting to know our musical desires as a couple. The whole wedding was on the dance floor all night. We could not have asked for a better DJ.Sent on 10/15/2018
