Best DJ hands down

Sam and his team are INCREDIBLE! They really took the time to get to know my partner and I and made our day feel so special, from start to finish. Would highly recommending taking advantage of their MC services while you're at it. Game changers. Thank you again, Sam!

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!

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!

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 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!

Sam at Evolved helped us to find the right equipment and lighting we would need to use to have my best friend, Annie (AMtrak), DJ our big day party. The sound system & disco ball was perfect for the space. The service of setup & teardown of the equipment was very convenient and we were grateful for that aspect. We recommend Evolved Entertainment for any of you soundsystem/DJ related needs.

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鈥攈e made our night and we felt lucky to have Evolved play our wedding!

Wonderful, experienced DJ

Found Evolved Entertainment on the Oliver Bonacini Preferred Vendor List. Hired Sam to be our DJ for a small restaurant wedding and he did not disappoint. Beyond the music, he helped us plan out our announcements and toasts, and was patient despite some of our last minute planning. He took the time to learn about our preferences as a couple and did a wonderful job keeping our guests up and moving all night. Our family and friends wanted to know who he was, and no one wanted to leave at the end of the night. He did a great job reading our crowd and helped make the night memorable for both us (especially me with the awesome and unexpected childhood She-Ra tribute) and our guests. We are still hearing from everyone how much fun they had. We would highly recommend him to anyone planning their next event. Thanks Sam.

Energized the whole night!

Sam was very professional and very helpful in giving direction to us for our wedding music. Sam comes with lots of experience and has a ton of fun and creative ideas if you are really looking to personalize your wedding! Sam was very organized and worked well with our other vendors. The night was an absolute blast, from the ceremony songs, to cocktail hour, and of course to the dance floor. Sam got in all of our favourites and was able to keep the energy up the whole night!
