Our wedding was amazing and a huge part of that was because we chose James as our DJ!! James was the best from the start - super nice, energetic, very hard working and wanting to make us happy from the first time I called. We got super lucky because I called Meritage on a Saturday, figuring I would get voicemail, but James answered because he's so dedicated, even though he was getting ready to do a wedding that day. We booked him and I felt so confident with our decision after reading these reviews and speaking to James. The smartest decision in your wedding planning would be to book Meritage as your DJ and uplighting service. We also booked Liz for uplighting, which came out beautiful. It brought my colors of blush and gold together perfectly. My friends are still telling me, almost a month after our wedding, what an awesome DJ we had and how much fun they had at our wedding!! Book Meritage so you know you'll have the best wedding ever!!

Based off reading reviews, my now husband and I decided to go with Meritage Entertainment for our wedding day (5/27/18). THE REVIEWS ARE ACCURATE PEOPLE!! James was professional, answered every single question in a more than timely manner and extremely knowledgeable. He erased every fear I had for a “cliche” wedding when it came to music. I come from a very big Italian family where English is their second language. James had them dancing from the start of our reception until the very end of it - every single song there were people on the dance floor. James musicality is truly outstanding and he has a passion for this business. Our guests still can’t get over how we were dancing before the first course was even served!! I also have to say that Liz did a phenomenal job with the uplighting. She made our venue even more beautiful :) These two have a special gift and they want to make each wedding memorable, fun and classy. To all the future brides/grooms reading this... BOOK THEM! You will not be disappointed plus your guests will continue to talk about how amazing your wedding was! ;)

I worked with Meritage Entertainment for my wedding on May 26, 2018 and it was INCREDIBLE. James was our DJ and he was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. I had spoken with a few other DJ companies before talking to James and I knew as soon as I hung up from our phone call that Meritage was the right choice for us. James was so friendly, professional, and down-to-earth. I told him that my goal was to have the dance floor packed all night, and he delivered! Everyone was dancing even before dinner was served and the dance floor was full ALL NIGHT LONG. James played a great mix of old and new songs to cater to all the guests at the wedding and he was great about accommodating our requests for introduction songs, "must plays," and "don't plays." Additionally, I really appreciated that he took the time to set up a phone call with me the week of the wedding to make sure that everyone's names would be pronounced correctly during introductions and that the order of events was correct.

We also worked with Liz for our uplighting, which looked MAGICAL. The lighting was seriously amazing and completely transformed the room. During our planning, we hesitated on including uplighting, but I will tell you, it was COMPLETELY worth it. Liz even changed the colors throughout the night to correlate with the music and set the mood for dancing.

Lastly, we had AJ Edwards perform live during our cocktail hour and he was fantastic! He performed with his just his acoustic guitar and it set the tone perfectly. Of note, our cocktail hour was outside and you could hear him flawlessly throughout the whole lawn area. AJ was warm, friendly, and professional, and truly terrific to work with.

Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend Meritage for your next event. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and I cannot imagine the day without our wonderful team of James, Liz, and AJ!

Working with James at Meritage Entertainment was a great experience. He accommodated all of our requests and had the dance floor full all night with great energy. He facilitated the audio for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception seamlessly. We had guests come up to us during the reception saying how much they were enjoying the music, which was great to hear! James was professional and fun and kept us on schedule during the reception. We would highly recommend James and Meritage Entertainment!

I will not hesitate to recommend Meritage or to hire them again! Dan was incredible. He was open to my ideas and suggestions and completely made my vision a reality. I got so many compliments from my party guests about the music! I was skeptical when Dan said he'd be able to keep everybody on the dance floor, but he absolutely kept true to his promise! It was a fantastic night that I'll never forget!
