Wow- We are so happy and pleased with Esteem Entertainment. They performed our wedding ceremony and it was amazing- People LOVED the music and the musicians were so professional. I emailed Dominic and Jack a good amount of times because I wanted a very specific version of a song to be played as I walked down the aisle- and they were so helpful- When I thought I was being totally annoying- they reassured me that I was not being annoying and they know they just wanted to make my wedding ceremony so special for me and exactly the way I imagined it- and they sure did do that- It was perfect-  Kelli

Hi Jack,

I’m sorry we haven’t had a chance to reach out sooner but we had to let you know how many compliments we received about our wedding on September 3, 2016 at the Breakers. Dominic killed it…he also had a fantastic partner, Ron Cooper I believe, that helped make our night amazing! I have received nothing but compliments about the djs/music at our wedding…I will be referring your company to everyone I know (we have a few BIG b-day parties coming up as well that we will definitely be booking u guys for!). Thank you all! Special thanks to Dominic. He worked with us from day one and absolutely exceeded our expectations!

Thank you,

Melissa & Kenneth

My husband and I are so happy that Dominic was the DJ at our wedding He was extremely professional, personable and knowledgeable regarding organizing a wedding to flow in the best way possible. Our wedding was very DIY, from the ceremony to the reception. As a result, I was looking for someone to not only DJ, but also MC the night. After emailing back and forth with Dominic, he suggested that we “meet” on Skype (we live in NY, Dominic is based in NJ). I immediately knew that Dominic was the right fit for our wedding. He ran through how he usually organizes the night and once we booked, Dominic helped me to create a schedule that would coordinate with the catering and the photographer. Dominic was extremely responsive to emails and invited me to join his Facebook group, where I was able to see clips of other weddings and events. Even though I only met Dominic the day of the wedding, it felt like I already knew him. Dominic kept the wedding flowing, whether it was time for speeches or to get the dance party going. It was not an easy event – it was an outdoor wedding in a million degree heat and at least 3 rain storms. However, Dominic took it all in stride. He even went above and beyond by taking pictures, stepped up once the photographer went home, and directed our cake cutting photos. He actually took great pictures throughout the night and sent me all of the files! I could not say enough good things about Dominic…in fact I said many times throughout the wedding process that he was my “favorite vendor”. I would highly recommend DJ Dominic for your event!

Dear Dominic,

You love what you do and it shows!

Just wanted to thank you for your great work at Deena and Jeremy’s wedding reception. Every piece of music we requested you made sure to have. The reception flowed smoothly with no awkward pauses, all names were pronounced correctly, it felt like you actually knew us, instead of some affairs we’ve attended where it felt obvious the dj and bridal family were complete strangers.

You also handled a last minute “mother-groom dance” request and other drama from outside sources with calm and dignity. Really appreciate that.

Our guests all enjoyed themselves and were consistently on the dance floor – mission accomplished!

I will not hesitate to sing your praises and recommend your services to friends and family.

All the best,

Great voices and music, easy to work with, supplied the photobooth and uplighting which made it easier on me, had a pianist play at the ceremony (which was beautiful) and also cocktail hour. I did need to remind them to use the songs on my requested list first for the actual reception, which was not a problem at all! A lot of the feedback from our guests was that the band was very talented, the volume was perfect and you were able to talk to people at your table (not too loud like many bands are) while also enjoying the music, and they liked when the singers interacted with the guests or came out onto the dance floor.

We also used DJ Dominic (who coordinated everything with the band as well), who was extremely easy to work with and followed all the tiny little annoying details I asked of him. Very timely in getting back to my emails, even my night before the wedding email. Thank you all for a great night!!!

This weekend, I am celebrating the completion of eleven years as a DJ. From the beginning of my DJ career, with less than stellar equipment playing small parties for family and friends, to the current point of my career with state of the art digital and LED equipment playing large weddings at some of the best venues in the northeast, every party has a formula.

Be it a birthday party or a wedding, an anniversary or a corporate event, every event has the same type of formula from the vantage point of the DJ. After the guests arrive and get settled, I make opening announcements and we roll through ceremonies. The guests then have dinner and the dance floor opens for the remainder of the evening.

After eleven years, what keeps me loving what I do every weekend? The special, spontaneous, unplanned moments that can only happen when a group of friends and family get together for a special occasion. I’d like to share a couple of those with you.

At the end of any event, I have a light song or two that I always play as I am packing up equipment. At the Bonnet Island Estate that song was the Darius Rucker version of “Wagon Wheel.” With the house lights up and the party over, the guests all joined hands and swayed back and forth, singing the song as it played. Of course I turned it up and let them enjoy the moment that two families became one.

In January 2015 at a wedding in Lyndhurst, New Jersey the crowd was rocking all night long. They were up and moving to the Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble that I typically play for dinner music. They reveled in the celebration of this marriage. From the ending of the toasts until the end of the wedding, every guest was out of their seats, dancing and singing along to the music and having a wonderful night. There were definitely some tired feet that evening.

Finally, I always enjoy the Relay for Life event that I participate in every June in northwest New Jersey. This is open to two high schools and upwards of 2500 people come on out to fight cancer. During the overnight hours, there is a dance marathon until the sun rises as a way to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Nothing can top the sea of over 1000 strong, with glow sticks in the air, all night long as we turned a football field into a dance floor.

Even though there is a set schedule of events for every party, I strive to make every event unique like those listed above to help you create your own special moments. I look forward to sharing more special moments with you over the next eleven years and beyond. Don’t hesitate to call or email. Let’s talk about your special occasion as I continue to DJ, but also take over office manager duties at Esteem Entertainment. I’ll be there every step of the way.

I highly recommend Esteem Entertainment to anyone throwing any type of event. I just got married on October 17th and used them. First off they are extremely affordable and offer so many services. Jack Goodman is so helpful and made everything so easy for me to get done which is very important for a bride trying to plan a wedding. DJ Dominic is organized, nice, and professional. He directed us throughout the whole wedding so we didn’t have to worry about anything. Every compliment i received on my wedding included how wonderful DJ Dominic was and what a good time they had because he kept the party going. From older family members to younger 21 year old friends, they all had a good time and that is all thanks to Dominic! He knew how to have the entire diverse age group have a good time and keep the party going! Everyone loved him and I can’t thank him enough! DJ Dominic and Esteem Entertainment made my wedding the fun memorable night it was!…
