DJ John Z made our wedding day unforgettable!! We hired Entertainment Specialists and DJ Zucco to provide music and audio for our cocktail hour, ceremony AND reception, as well as lighting and GOBO. The team made sure everything went smoothly and looked so beautiful! We could not be happier. From the first moment, Barbara was a great point of contact and really guided us through the offerings, allowed us plenty of time to select the DJ, and was always available for any questions. Working with DJ John Z was like planning a party with your best friend. He listened, and really connected with our vision. He knew that music (for moments, and over all mood) was important to my husband and me, and went above and beyond to make sure we got the exact versions of the songs that we wanted,. Sometimes sending us multiple cuts! We would look to Entertainment Specialists for our next celebration because they made the whole process a breeze, respected our visions, and were truly just the best professionals!! Thank you DJ John and team!
