    If you're thinking about choosing Pulse, stop thinking and choose them right now!

    When choosing a DJ it was really important to us to find someone that was willing to work with our specific requests and help our vibe for our evening come together, not just tell us what we should do without taking our opinions into account. Karl was the perfect professional for that - he listened to everything we wanted, made helpful suggestions and offered advice for how to make the evening flow smoothly, and did all the behind the scenes work with our day of coordinator so we had nothing to worry about on our wedding day. He nailed all of the timing for the songs we wanted at particular times, but he and his team were also very flexible and accommodating when we wanted to change some things up or make specific requests mid-reception. We knew we our guests were going to expect a pretty high-energy dance floor, and Pulse Entertainment did NOT disappoint - we're so happy we chose them!

    Pulse Entertainment for 11/1/19 wedding

    Karl was responsive from the beginning, even before we officially contracted him. A few weeks before the wedding, he sent out a detailed questionnaire that allowed us to express our interests clearly. The music shifted as the night went on and the demographics changed. While not all of the songs on our "must play" list were actually played, Karl still did a good, professional job of reading the room.

    Pulse Entertainment's reply:

    Hi Moira! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review! Regarding not all of the songs on your "must play" list getting played, unfortunately sometimes if the wedding is running behind schedule we may not be able to fit the entire list in. That being said we are so happy to hear that you were still delighted with DJ Karl and the rest of our team. Best wishes to you two!

    Don't even look at another DJ- Book Pulse Entertainment!

    I had such an amazing experience with Karl from Pulse Entertainment on my wedding day. They had people dancing all night long, and we keep getting compliments about how great the music selection was! He was super responsive to emails, sometimes getting back to me way after business hours when I was doing my wedding planning. They did my ceremony music as well and everything was flawless. I might also add that I was super vague about what I wanted for music, and his playlist was exactly what I had in my brain but could not quite put together myself. I would 100% recommend Pulse Entertainment!

    Very easy going!

    Pulse entertainment was a wonderful company to work with. Karl was very responsive to all emails, and was willing to talk to me on the phone when wedding planning anxiety finally got to me. Our wedding day didn’t run quite the way we originally planned, but Karl and his team were easy going and just went with the flow of things. They were very approachable during the reception. I would highly suggest them for anyone looking for a DJ.

    Excellent Service Because of Professionalism

    Karl and the Pulse Entertainment team helped make our wedding perfect. I honestly don't have one negative thing to say about my experience with them. Karl is extremely punctual (if not ahead of schedule) and easy to get in touch with. He is truly an expert in the industry and thinks about your wedding at every angle to ensure it goes smoothly while keeping the tone you want your wedding to have. This was the vendor I felt most comfortable with during the wedding process, because I wholeheartedly trusted their judgement and attention to detail. Because of this and their fair cost, my wedding stress was reduced.
    My guests had a great time, which was definitely a result of the Pulse team "working the crowd". My husband and I knowingly chose songs that weren't mainstream, but the team was able to play our songs along with crowd pleasers at a pace that encouraged dancing. The team also ensured the whole night ran smoothly between speeches, traditional dances, last call, etc. We had a video play during our first dance, which they set up so everyone could see, but was not in the way. The team was very flexible. At one point in the night, it was time for the father/daughter dance and the team let me know. I was not ready yet, but they had no problem waiting until I was. They also knew exactly where my dad was before I could even ask!

    There were some vendors I had that disappointed me, because they were very expensive, but did not provide quality service. Pulse Entertainment was the complete opposite of this as they went above and beyond my expectations for a fair price.

    Pulse Entertainment is truly the best option if you want a team that is a fair price, pays attention to detail, is timely with communication, gives you and your guests a fun night, and is truly the expert in the industry.

    Great With Details and Uplighting

    Karl and Pulse Entertainment were incredible! He was very attentive to our needs, even when we needed a few last-minute changes. The music was exactly in line with what we asked for, and everything flowed seamlessly. We also went with the additional uplighting, which completely transformed the event space to be more beautiful than I could have imagined. We are SO glad we went with Pulse Entertainment for our wedding!

    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!

    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!
    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!

    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!

    As for the photo booth, we do admit that because this is the first year we are offering it there are some kinks to work out, but we're getting close to having everything perfected now. We're glad that you were able to take advantage of our introductory discounted rate, and we REALLY appreciate your support in helping us get our photo booth business off the ground!

    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!

    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!!!

    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!

    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!!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    Awesome DJ!

    Finding a DJ in this area was hard for us! We felt overwhelmed by the amount of options and had no idea how to narrow down the choices. After having a terrible phone interview with another prospective DJ, we decided to give Pulse Entertainment a call. We first spoke with Karl and we were impressed right off the bat! He was highly informative and up front with the important information for the day. To the contract and what to expect, he really put our minds at ease. The pricing was also very competitive and attractive to us. As it got closer to our wedding day, Karl and his team were very responsive and helpful in offering suggestions on how to achieve a special idea that we had for a play on a New Orleans Second Line parade exit. Karl also followed up to make sure that he had the important notes for the day, including the order of songs for the ceremony as well as how to pronounce the names of our bridal party for the entrance to the reception. On the day of, everything went off without a hitch. It was a pleasure to work with Karl and his team and I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for DJ services.
