“We hired DJ Dave for our wedding at the Nahant Country Club, and he was fantastic! He helped us every step of the way with the planning, the music, and formalities. Even when there were last minute changes made, DJ Dave didnt skip a beat! He took such a huge weight off our shoulders that day, and we are forever grateful for that. He is also very affordable for the amazing experience he delivers. In addition, we absolutely loved the custom monogram addition that projected our names over our wedding cake! We couldn’t have been happier!”

“DJ Dave Gilman is the best! We have a party every summer with about 150 people and have had Dave as our DJ for the past 5 years. He has made our party more enjoyable than ever! Our guests are of all ages and he knows what to play to make everyone happy. By the end of the evening everyone is up and dancing! It wouldn’t be the same without him! Love you, Dave!”

“Dave was the DJ at our Winter Wonderland wedding held at our home. He was very easy to work with, professional, and accommodating. In addition, he made some great music suggestions, and helped us put together a wonderful selection of music that appealed to everybody including my son. He even got my now husband Stephen to dance which I wasn’t sure would happen! I’d definitely recommend Dave!”

“I hired Dave to DJ my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary. He far exceeded my/our expectations. He created a relevant song selection specifically for my parents, their guests and the younger guests. The selection spanned from the 40’s through today. My parents had a day that they will never forget. We will be calling Dave again.“

Rene Bousquet

50th Wedding Anniversary, Lake Pearl Banquet Hall, Wrentham, MA

“We selected Dave as our wedding DJ & MC at the Sanctuary music and event venue in Maynard. Communication and responsiveness was excellent, leading up to the event. Dave matched our vision for the day and provided us with a customized playlist that perfectly complemented each moment. Our guests are still raving about the evening’s music. Dave was easily able to shift gears when needed to keep our guests dancing. Nearly everyone remained on the dance floor throughout the entire night!! We couldn’t have asked for a better DJ to make our wedding day unforgettable. Highly recommend Dave for your next event!”

“I hired Dave to DJ the Pool Grand Opening at The Regency at Stow. I requested that he play music from the 60s, 70s, and 80s in order to cater to the active adult, 55+ community. He did a really good job, and the community was very pleased. In fact, several people even asked for his contact info for private events.”

Julian Borrero

“We were very pleased with DJ Dave. His communication prior and during the event were very professional. The party was an outdoor graduation and needed background music for the event. DJ Dave asked appropriate questions during initial conversations to understand the event and our guests in order to provide the appropriate level of entertainment. During the event, we asked if he could extend his time since the guest were having a good time and were staying longer. He was very accommodating and happy to do so. I would recommend DJ Dave since he is easy to work with and professional from start to finish.”

He had the dance floor packed, and also set a nice 50s, 60s, and 70s decade vibe during dinner.

We were so grateful for the plan-ahead phone calls, which helped us stay enthusiastic to plan & gave us confidence leading up to the big day.

“Working with DJ Dave Entertainment was such a great opportunity for us! His many years of experience, attention to detail, and flexibility when it came to planning/DJing our wedding made the whole event much less stressful and way more enjoyable.”

Sofia Luckett

Ceremony & Wedding, Whitney Farmstead, Groton, MA

“DJ Dave was fantastic for our wedding. He was very responsive in answering all questions and did an amazing job helping us set the perfect tone for our special day. We were a bit more untraditional and asked for a lot of country music to be added to the “party” aspect of the reception. Although it may have been more difficult to keep the “party” vibe with country music, he met that request perfectly! We had a couple of odd requests which he met to perfection and we couldn’t have had a more perfect day (even with the threat of hurricane lee)!”

Ashley Smith

Ceremony & Wedding, Residential Tented Wedding, Derry, NH

“DJ Dave was everything we were looking for. He did an amazing job. He was professional and spot on! We were not sure about having a DJ for my mom’s celebration of life, but her love of music made us feel like it was necessary. DJ Dave was reasonably priced. He was on time and set up his own’s station. Everything looked amazing the lighting really transformed the room! I would recommend him 10 out of 10 anytime! Thank you, Dave.”

Heather Daggett

Mom's Celebration of Life, Bridgewater Citizens Club, Bridgewater, MA

“Dave was great! Had a fantastic line up of songs, and timed them perfectly to keep the event going smoothly. Very responsive to requests, and created a seamless transition from dinner music, to dancing music and everything in between. Highly recommend!”
