We chose the dj package that included the ceremony, up lighting, and reception music. We loved the website Hesson uses to create playlists. It helped to keep us organized and also helped relay the type of music we like and wanted to hear at the wedding. We spoke with Mike several times and a couple weeks before the wedding, we had a very detailed conversation about the timeline and our preferences. Our DJ also called us a few days before the wedding to go over last minute questions and details. The DJ was on time and set up in an appropriate time before the ceremony and reception started. He kept in communication with us the whole time to make sure we were on schedule. We were very happy with the quality of the service and the price.

We are so happy we chose Hesson Entertainment for our wedding. Craig was our DJ and he was amazing. He got the crowd moving, played everything that we had asked for, and overall made the event very fun and classy. The lighting was also beautiful. Mike helped us coordinate everything, and he was also phenomenal. We could not have asked for more.

Mike Hesson handled my wedding and he was great. They made the room look amazing with their up lighting, spot lights on my centerpieces, and the gobo on the dance floor. The wedding hall looked like a scene out of a movie and it looked even better in photos. The DJ worked well with a lot of strong personalities and stuck to the timeline well. Mike met with me multiple times to review the wedding and is very responsive via email. I suggest not making too many suggestions and just letting the DJs handle it. Our emcee was also fabulous. We had a great time and danced all night! If you are looking for a full service DJ Company, Hesson is it. Other companies cannot provide you with a one-stop-shop of all your entertainment and decor needs.

Hesson Entertainment provided the music for our reception. Craig our DJ was awesome! We spoke a few days before our day and went over details and music choices so he could have an idea of what to provide. He nailed it! I don't think we had a moment where the floor was empty.

He not only provided the music he came with different sets of lighting options to give the party an extra edge. He's a nice guy and was very helpful will use him again for every party!! ~ Stephanie T. • 5/5 stars November 1, 2014 I made the right decision of getting DJ Shake's. I organized a Dance for school and our students had a blast! DJ Shake was knowledgeable of the type of music and songs that middle schoolers like but at the same time mindful of the school's policy of what is considered as acceptable lyrics. He arrived to the venue on time and was very friendly to the students and staff. ~ Aileen M. • 5/5 stars October 31, 2014 He is a TOP Notch DJ! He arrived on time and ready to get started. The song selection was well matched to the crowd, which ranged from 20 to the 80 year old's, they were all dancing. Everyone had a great time and he kept the party moving from one point to the next. He knew exactly what to say to get the party started. He kept the birthday atmosphere exciting for all who attended. We would definitely recommend DJ Shake to anyone of our family and friends. ~ Najah G. • 5/5 stars October 20, 2014 Craig was extremely professional, well prepared and my daughter’s wedding was great fun because of his personality.

He prepared so well, pronounced everyone's name correctly, and the music selection was wide and kept everyone dancing!!! ~ Christina J. • 5/5 stars September 2, 2014 I cannot thank DJ Shake enough for making our wedding day so amazingly special. From the moment Ryan and I met him, we were certain that he knew his stuff, from his genuine personality, to the way he spoke about his work. It was pretty damn clear that DJ Shake found his passion, and that passion was making so many weddings memorable. DJ Shake's professionalism and work ethic goes beyond what I ever could have expected. He was very prompt to our initial meeting, asked questions, fully answered ours, and was extremely quick about responding to texts and emails. Before introducing the wedding party, he made sure he was able to pronounce everyone's names correctly EVEN WITH the sheet I provided him with phonetic spellings. I feel like I could go on and on about his amazing work, but I will say that DJ Shake was ready for any kind of changes in our wedding- - he was able to make adjustments as needed. (Which is great, considering something always unexpected comes up.) Simply put, DJ Shake was someone we could trust to make our vision come true. DJ Shake, I am so honored and blessed that you were our DJ for our wedding. From your charisma, to your jokes, to your expertise with mixing songs...it was truly a day I will never forget, and can only wish to live over and over again. It is so clear that you have found your passion in life, because your work as a DJ just goes above and beyond. You are truly a blessing to so many happy couples. I DEFINITELY recommend this man to everyone. ~ Lena K. • 5/5 stars August 20, 2014 DJ Shake was absolutely great. He was timely in his responses and the ultimate professional. He was able to provide great insight and feedback when planning the musical selections and timing of songs for the wedding ceremony. His musical selections and ability to read the crowd was phenomenal. I would highly recommend him. ~ Kathy T. • 5/5 stars August 18, 2014 Craig "DJ Shake" Exceeded our expectations. Craig played a huge part in helping to make our Wedding day perfect. He was professional from the minute we first sat down to discuss our plans, through the last song at the reception. Our reception was at the James J. Audobon Center in Audobon, PA. Craig was there early and ready to go. He had 2 setups for us (one at the cocktail hour, and a main set up in a separate building for the main reception). Craig played all of the songs we wanted to include and filled in the open spots perfectly. He took the time to get to know us personally a little bit so he could fill in and give us a perfect reception based on what we like. There was nothing I would have done differently. if you have an event, and are in need of a DJ, I highly recommend DJ Shake. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again Craig!! ~ Patrick G. • 5/5 stars August 8, 2014 DJ Shake was an excellent DJ and MC. He made our wedding very exciting and he was very interactive and entertaining. I was told a good DJ will know how to spin music and work a crowd and he definitely had both skills. He had music for all of our song requests. I would highly recommend this DJ for any event and would definitely hire him again for my next event. ~ Keisha G. • 5/5 stars July 28, 2014 I have to start this review out saying, what an awesome DJ!!! I hired DJ Shake to play for 35th Birthday party on Fort Meade for 5 hours. He was on time (early), very professional and honored the fact that I wanted hear 90's music. I got great feedback from my guest as well such as "Where did you hire the DJ from? He was on point!!" He really exceeded my expectations and I will hire him again and again and suggest him to anyone looking for a DJ! Thanks for a wonderful time DJ Shake!! ~ Tracy S. • 5/5 stars July 16, 2014 He has the personality and a great sense of what the guests wanted to hear. He was flexible and a great host. I will definitely use him for any event I have. DJ Shake was just incredible!!!! ~ Marie S. • 5/5 stars July 7, 2014 All I have to say is “Outstanding. “My now wife and I hired Craig “DJ Shake” for our wedding, and from the first meeting with Craig we were very comfortable and impressed with him. We did not just want a DJ, but an entertainer, so my wife put him on the spot during our first meeting to give us a demonstration of how he would introduce the wedding party, and he did an awesome job. My wife could not maintain a “poker face” she was so excited and could not wait to see his talent. He really listens to our thoughts on the music and our concerns. Craig even joined in our wedding skit and on the dance floor. I would definitely hire him again. ~ Jay P. • 5/5 stars June 22, 2014 DJ shake gave an amazing performance for the Summer at Friend programs. He accommodated all of our needs and made sure the music was appropriate for the ages that attended the dance. It s hard to find a DJ willing to censor music or play kids versions but he did an excellent job. The children had a lot of fun! We will definitely have him again next summer. ~ Jocelyn P. • 5/5 stars June 17, 2014 Awesome! On time, professional, took request and actually listened to what type of music we wanted prior to the party and had a playlist going.

Throughout the entire process, DJ Shake was easy to work with, provided wonderful communication and, most importantly, kept the party lively. I never had to feel worried during the evening of my reception as Craig went with the flow, easily adjusting when necessary. If you're still trying to decide, STOP, book DJ Shake! ~ Michael B. • 5/5 stars May 11, 2014 Craig Perry was amazing. He was very entertaining, kept the guests and the party going. Great sense of humor. Ensured that he was pronouncing all names properly prior to announcing bridal party. Wide variety of music available. He definitely exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this gentleman for DJ services. ~ Linda S. • 5/5 stars April 30, 2014 It is a pleasure to do business with DJ Shake he was very professional and provided above and beyond what we expected at an 80th birthday event. He ensured a mixture of music to cater to his audience. What expressed me the most is the service and patience he had within. I had family from all over the world with various taste in music and he certainly was able to deliver. We had a ball! Thanks DJ Shake for traveling to NY to make my mom event a success. ~ Sonya E. • 4/5 stars April 26, 2014 I hired Craig at short notice and he delivered all the music that we wanted and more.

He was very professional and also catered to any type of music that we wanted to listen to. A very good DJ and would highly recommend him for any of your party events and will definitely be using him in the near future. ~ Chris M. • 5/5 stars February 26, 2014 I hired DJ Shake for my sister's Sweet 16 birthday party in Feb 2014. I was nervous because it was my first time hiring a DJ and it was short notice. However, DJ Shake proved to be an excellent choice and I am more than happy that I hired him. Prior to the event DJ Shake provided me with an incredible bio, a professional resume, link of a performance, and an extensive list of referrals. DJ Shake arrived early and was prepared. He was very engaging, got the party started and stayed in tuned with the crowd, giving shout outs to the birthday girl and total entertainment. The prearranged games, musical chairs and limbo were an amazing success! DJ Shake led them effortlessly and did a wonderful birthday dedication when it was time for cake! We were supposed to play a slideshow which did not happen due to our end, but DJ Shake came prepared with all equipment necessary. He made the party fun and even stayed late without being asked. The music was great! He took careful consideration to the vibe of the crowd, which was 90% teens. Several people asked about the DJ and commented on how great he was. He stayed in constant communication with me throughout the planning of the event and was very professional. I was so pleased by his services and would not hesitate to hire him for our next event!! :) ~ Andria M. • 5/5 stars February 24, 2014 DJ Shake is very professional, responsive, talented and personable.

I definitely will utilize his services again and highly recommend him for all of your gathering needs. ~ Shanay W. • 4/5 stars February 23, 2014 The wedding hasn't happened yet, but we are very happy with choosing DJ Shake. We will definitely update after the wedding. ~ Jennifer S. • 5/5 stars February 22, 2014 DJ Shake came highly recommended so when I was planning my husband's party, I decided to give him a try. He was absolutely amazing! He had the crowd on their feet from the start of the party until the very end. Days later, I was getting phone calls about how great the party was and how much fun they had. When people leave your party drenched, you must know the DJ did his thing! Thank you so much DJ Shake for making my husband's party a memorable one. ~ Yolette L. • 5/5 stars February 21, 2014 DJ Shake was the DJ at my wedding. He did an amazing job. He arrived early and was ready and prepared with no problems. His resume speaks volumes and his work ethics are amazing. Craig did an outstanding job at my wedding. He kept the crowd going, and he made my vision of my entry in the wedding ceremony a reality. Craig has a God given talent and anyone would be blessed to work with him on any project. I give Craig 5 stars. However, if I was able to give him more, I definitely would. Excellent Job!! Look forward to working with you in the future. ~ Niye J. • 5/5 stars February 3, 2014 After checking out references, we hired DJ Shake for our daughter's 16th birthday party. The party was from 5-9 and he was there before to set up and was more than ready by the time of the party. He went over details to know about the group, asked for requests and also for "do not play" songs. He even played past 9 until most of the kids had left. DJ Shake helped make it a great party and a great experience for us. ~ Ted C. • 5/5 stars January 14, 2014 I give DJ Shake a 5 star rating. He was absolutely amazing and I would recommend him to anyone in need of someone diverse and talented. I used DJ Shake for my 25th birthday party in NY this weekend. He played everything from Hip-Hop to Rap, Classics and R&B. My guests gave me such great feedback about his work and several asked for his contact info. He kept the crowd pumping, and no one wanted to go home so I asked him to stay for an additional hour. I loved the fact that he was on time and had his own equipment. He was very professional and even went as far as providing me with a huge screen projector for the customized photo slide that I wanted to present to family and friends. He made it happen for me and truly made my birthday memorable. Thanks DJ Shake! ~ Charletta R. • 5/5 stars January 7, 2014 DJ Shake, We would like to thank you for your wonderful performance as part of the Get Fit Stage Tour. We had many positive comments from our sponsors on the quality of your DJ service. Our students had a great time and we believe that a large part of that was thanks to your enthusiasm and your unique ability to engage an audience. The time we spent with you, planning and discussing our script and musical line up was obviously taken on board by you, and we thank you for keeping the crowd jumping. We would recommend your service to any company or individual! Please feel free to use us as a reference in the future. Kind regards, Cory Morgan / Youth Coordinator Kid Fit 101 www.kidfit101.com ~ Cory M. • 5/5 stars January 6, 2014 My wedding day was one of the biggest days of my life and as important as it was to me, D.J. Shake made sure to make it just as important to him. He was punctual, professional and exceptionally friendly. I didn't have a full list of songs for every aspect of the wedding and D.J. Shake was able to fill in the blanks flawlessly. He was more than efficient with the time considering that the reception hall was more than an hour away from the church. When I arrived to the reception, he was already set up and playing music and he played music until the last guest left. I am very appreciative of his hard work and I will definitely use him again. ~ Patrice T. • 4/5 stars January 6, 2014 My new wife and I were anxious about choosing the right DJ for our Connecticut wedding last September, as we were both very exact about the type of music we wanted to hear on our day. In general, most DJ’s dislike pre-programmed playlists or requests, but “DJ Shake” was very accommodating and understood that this day was about us. He effortlessly took our suggestions and created a musical experience that left our guests raving about the music, he delivered! “Shake” should be everyone’s first choice for their Wedding DJ, we are still dancing in CT. ~ Ricardo B.
