Had the honor of having 617 DJ Chris Profenna do our wedding inn december 30, 2017. The paperwork was super easy and actually once that was done, the fun started. Using their website to add songs, dedications, first dance, bride/father dance etc...was extremely easy and fun. You could type in a song or artist and hear the songs, slide the ones you want over to what you’d like to hear. Aside from that, Chris was able to provide an absolutely amazing atmosphere and picked up on the crowds like, or dislike, of a song. Would change it if he felt the vibe change and melded the songs perfectly. We LOVED him, his presence and his humor. Knew when to pass the mic, play the music, make the dedications and keep the party moving until it ended. Top notch has experience and top notch company in 617!

DJ Chuck was AMAZING and such a cool guy-- a great wedding DJ and great to work with. He came to me with high recommendations, having DJ'ed my cousin's wedding and another friend's wedding. TWO awesome recommendations?? I had to go with him. He was super fun and knew how to get the crowd moving, always playing the perfect next song. He took the time to listen to our requests and get to know our music style, and put together a playlist that was tailored to our specific musical tastes, and to the feel of the crowd. He was also very careful not to play requests from our guests without the "OK" of the bride first, which I appreciated :) Everyone had a fabulous time, and I was shocked to see all 150 people (including my husband's 94 year old grandmother!!!) on the dance floor the ENTIRE NIGHT. My guests raved about how fun our wedding was, and Chuck definitely played a huge part in that. I'd recommend him to anybody in the Boston area!

Jimmie Espo was our DJ for our wedding on Nov. 12, 2017. He was easy to work with overall. We gave him the main songs that we wanted played (first dance, mother/son, father/daughter, etc), and nothing else. He had most of our guests dancing all night with his playlist. Everyone (including us) were very impressed with how nice of a job he did. Couldn't have asked for a better night! :)

My husband and I got married on March 17th at Oceancliff in Newport, RI. We hired 617 weddings for DJ services. We were so pleased! Chris Profenna was our DJ. I had a laundry list of specific songs I wanted played for my ceremony music and he made sure he got exact versions that I wanted. He had a conference call with us a week before the wedding to
Review our music. He was so personable and made our night an enjoyable one. We were so pleased with our DJ. Every wedding needs a good DJ! We would definitely book 617 wedding and Chris Profenna again.

Book Jimmie Espo from 617 Weddings for your wedding DJ NOW!!!!!!!!! I got married 2/10/18, and Jimmie made my reception the most flawlessly beautiful, romantic, and dance-filled night I could ever possibly imagine. I mean it when I tell you that Jimmie had every single guest dancing from start to finish. When Jimmie played the last song of the night, I kid you not that the entire reception, young and old, started chanting “ONE MORE SONG!” as if we were at a concert! Every single guest has commented to me that it was the best wedding reception they had every been to, and this is all because of Jimmie. Jimmie is so much more than a DJ. He really was a wedding coordinator - he paid attention to every little detail, had a clear and strict schedule that he adhered to and updated us on, checked in with us constantly throughout the wedding to make sure everything was perfect and kept us in the loop of upcoming details.He even made sure I kept having a blast after someone spilled red wine on my dress. More importantly, we TRUSTED him. We trusted that he had full control over how our night went and that the night would run smoothly, flawlessly, and full of dancing and fun. Throughout the night, whenever I had a concern or question, I immediately turned to Jimmie, and he immediately addressed the situation. For example, our family speeches ended up being longer than we had anticipated, and my husband and I became worried that it would ruin the flow of our night. Jimmie immediately took charge and made decisions while communicating with all of vendors to change our schedule and make up for our lost time. At any wedding, things just don’t always go as planned, and disruptions come up. But it is Jimmie’s quick decision making, expertise and experience, and true talent that allows him to ensure that regardless of what happens, your wedding will be perfect. I promise you- there is no better hire for music/DJ than Jimmie Espo- book him NOW for the wedding of your dreams!!!!!
