    Danced all day and all night!

    Sam was super organized and invested in making sure our wedding was curated to a tee. The dancing started at 4pm (right after our vows) and kept going until almost 2am! In the months and weeks leading up to our big day we worked with Sam to create specific playlists for various parts of the afternoon and evening. When the party got going, Sam was able to work guest requests into his mixes. The sound quality and lights were first rate. Sam most definitely looked the part. We would highly recommend Sam and his team!

    That was one for the history books! It was great to have a crowd that really wanted to celebrate with you and it did not take much to get them dancing well before it started getting dark. Thanks so much for trusting me with an awesome playlist for your fun loving guests. It was great to see the whole day finally come together. All the best to you and Rachel! Love, Sam

    We had Mike DJ our wedding in October and are so glad we did! Throughout the process Mike was amazing at helping us narrow down what songs we wanted, and offered great suggestions based on our music taste when we needed help. We had guests of all age groups comment on how much fun they had dancing because the music was perfect. I would highly recommend Mike and the crew at Evolved Entertainment for your wedding, you will not be disappointed!

    My wife and I absolutely loved our wedding and Sam was a really important part of making the night beautiful, fun, and stylish. He got to know us. He got that we wanted a dance party and we wanted the music selection to touch everyone. He painted a picture of how he was going to make that work. And he promised to play a lot of vinyl!

    With very little direction, Sam curated a selection that worked with our musical cues, connected with every generation in the room, had my grandma up cutting with my little niece and nephew—he made our night and we felt lucky to have Evolved play our wedding!

    Thank you very much Shane (and Sarah) for giving us your faith and trusting us with your big day! It was awesome to get to know you both. I must say your grandfather's speech was one of the best I have ever heard. I hope you have had a laugh listening to the recording! Love and light to you and your growing family, Sam Fleming

    Sam got the party started & it didn't end!

    Sam was the recommended DJ from my venue. My fiance and I were very impressed in his musical knowledge and strategies for how he gets different cohorts of people to dance. As my groom has an extensive background in music, we felt extremely comfortable with Sam as our DJ and MC. He helped us build a song list that flowed well, and allowed us to customize our ceremony songs. We had a non-traditional wedding in a traditional event space and Sam helped us customize the feelings of the event through music. Sam even came to the dress rehearsal the night before the wedding to meet all the important family members. He wanted to get to know the family so he could have personalized entrances for the parties. I highly recommend Evolved Entertainment!

    My husband and I used Evolved entertainment for our wedding. This was a match made in DJ heaven with Sam being into hop hop (my style) and disco (my husbands style). The entire experience was really easy and Sam was extremely helpful and informative leading up to the day of. The day off was completely flawless and to my surprise they brought along a brilliant saxophone to play along with the DJ's for cocktail hour. During the reception there was never a time the dance floor was empty, there were amazing at reading the room and keeping the party going. Even though they were meant to finish at 0100 and had flights to catch the morning after they continued until the venue shut us down. I would highly recommend using this DJ service for any event!

    Thanks for such a detailed review Holly! It was inspiring to get to know you both and hear not just about where you have travelled, but where you were headed later this year!!! Maybe with a few more reviews like this we can catch up with jetset rockstars like you and Fab in air miles ;)
    It was an honour to get all your friends and family dancing! Glad that the sax upgrade helped deepen the warm vibe you wanted to build.
