We are a Luxury Wedding DJ and Custom Event Lighting company – no cheesy DJ antics here. I’ve been many things over the years – but DJ and Lighting have always been my passion. My stomping grounds are The Berkshires MA, Hudson Valley NY to Boston, Newport RI and Hartford to CT Shoreline.

“We worked with DJ Pat. We couldn’t have been happier. From the start Rob was quick to respond and got us set up with a DJ that fit our style. Pat then was great about keeping us on our timeline and meeting us on days that worked for us ( we were out of state) to checking in the week before the wedding, sending samples of songs we requested to make sure they were the right versions and so easy to work with (very responsive). The wedding itself was great! Jesse was a hit at the Photo Booth, and Pat kept the guests dancing all night long. Thank you again!!! Alicia B. – Lenox, MA
