Our wedding reception was simply perfect! Food, service at Le Crystal and COCKTAIL Special Events resulted in a flawless and in a night we will never forget.
COCKTAIL Special Events set the tone right from the beginning with jazzy, lounge, chill out music that simply created a classy and cool ambiance. During dinner, it was the perfect mix of dance and easy listening numbers while our guests were eating.
After dinner, their DJ took over and kept the dance floor packed until the end of the night. Amazing!
What we appreciated so much was the volume in the hall during dinner. People were actually able to have a conversation without having to shout to one another. Their song selection was amazing and made our special night different and distinct.
Unbelievable and talented singers impressed our guests, and entertained everyone in the room.
Thank you so very much Johnny and COCKTAIL Special Events. You guys are the best!

Cocktail Special Events
They handled the entire evening with elegance and professionalism.
Sensational!!! Really set the perfect ambiance
Unlike any other band/DJ in the industry, they created a magical atmosphere throughout the entire night, and our guests were able to speak to one another without having to shout on top of their lungs. John is very attentive, and pays attention to the smallest details which resulted in a great party. We had the three singers and guitar player + house DJ line-up, and they were simply amazing.
Thank you Johnny and COCKTAIL for making our special moment a memorable one.
Our Christmas wedding
We had a magical evening; everything was simply perfect. COCKTAIL Special Events set the tone right from the beginning with lounge/jazz Christmas tunes and charmed our guests during the meal with dance songs in between meals and easy listening numbers while eating. Engaging with our guests with class and entertainment, getting our guests to the dance floor, COCKTAIL delivered what they promised and more.
I truly appreciated Johnny's full cooperation and accommodating both our cultures, Italian and Ukrainian.
