February 22,2009 "Great Service " Alyson North Providence
I Chose Zeal DJ pretty close to the last minute for my dad's surprise 70th birthday party.
They did a great job of accommodating me especially given that I hired them last minute.
I did a tropical paradise theme and requested a number of songs with a tropical flavor to them .
They made sure that they had exactly the songs that I wanted .
They really try hard to work with you and make your party just how you want it to be .
The party was a lot of fun and although I spent a lot of time mc-ing the DJ complimented what I was doing very nicely
Not to mention their prices were also more reasonable than some of the others I had checked out I definitely recommend them !

We had a 40th birthday party with little kids and adults . Mike did a great job working with a group that we had
He knew what songs to play when and targeted the songs he played to his audience really well .
I got rave reviews about him from all of my friends .
We had a blast ! Working with Barry was a pleasure too . He was very flexible and easy to deal with.
Thanks for the karaoke CD's too ! I would highly recommend these guys !

It made a nerve racking experience more calming than I could ever imagined .
The entertainment was spectacular and everyone had a fantastic time .
Mike played music for all the different age groups and kept the dance floor busy all night long .
There was not one moment when the dance floor empty , it was great ! ! ! The only disappointment was the

October 29, 2008 Wedding " Fantastic !! " Little Compton RI
Barry and Mike from The Zeal DJ Network were really fun to work with and did a great job at our wedding .
They really took the time to listen to our ideas and provided very good suggestions of their own.
They were very professional , personable and catered to every music choice that my wife and I made.
We had a great time and would recommend them and their company to anyone who needs a DJ for their event.

"AWESOME " ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
The Zeal DJ Network assisted with making mine and my husband's wedding a night that I will never forget .
I had more fun at my wedding than I ever thought possible. For a moment ,
I stood back and watched everyone dancing to the music and smiling and I was so happy that my guests were having such a great time .
I could not have done it without the Zeal DJ Network .
Their service , personality and willingness to please to their FULL potential exceeds there prices by FAR !!!
My husband and I wish that we had a party coming up again soon so we would have the pleasure to interact with the
" Zeal Team " again .
We communicated so often that they did not seem like a vendor to us at our wedding , but they made us feel as though we were friends .
Some of the music selections were not " typical " and the Zeal team made
it very possible for my vision to become a reality with my choices on our wedding day .
Thanks so much to the " ZEAL TEAM " ! ! ! ! !
I'm just really sad that we will not talk to each other so often anymore
October 17 , 2008 Wedding " Excellent ! " Kelly Southeastern Mass
Barry and the guys from The Zeal DJ Network are awesome !

and helped make eveyrthing go smoothly.

The Zeal DJ Network helped us to incorporate a nice casual clambake with the traditions of a wedding .
The music was great and DJ Pete had no problem coercing our guest to the dance floor .
We had no complaints and lots of compliments which made our wedding day memorable ! !
Thanks Barry and Pete ! !
August 18, 2008 Wedding "Excellent Job !!" Dawn E.Prov. RI
They Provided the best personalized service. They made our w edding a hit !!!
Would love to use their service again. Extremely reasonably priced. A pleasure to work with.
They were the one service I could depend on and never have to worry about anything.
Highly recommend for your next function.
Thank you for your great service !!!!
August 14, 2008 "Our guests didn't want to leave !" S.J. Eastern MA
We used Zeal DJ Network for my daughter's high school graduation party.
Their price was more than fair, and the hour of karaoke really sets their service apart from everyone else out there.
The invited guests didn't leave until the DJ had played the final number.
He kept them engaged, staged a couple of contests, and was thorughly entertaining and professional.
I can't think of anything I would have changed.
August 12, 2008 " Wedding Sarah Manchester New Hampshire
"Nobody wanted the party to end ! "
We found the Zeal DJ Network through a Google search.
I was stunned when Barry emailed me with his quote...
It was WAY below what I had been quoted by other DJs that lived in the same town as us.
We live in Manchester, NH and Zeal DJ is out of RI, so we thought there had to be some catch.. nope, not at all !.
I emailed Barry multiple times over the course of our wedding planning with many questions and he was fabulous with his responses. Not only they were timely, but he answered every question I had.
I probably annoyed the heck out of him, but he never let me know it !
The 2 DJs that ended up doing our wedding earlier than they said they would be ,,,kept the party going ALL night.
Nobody wanted to stop dancing and whatever was played, the dance floor was full !
They were happy to accomodate my Do Not Play List, as well as my Must Play List
and made sure to do things when we wanted them done.
I highly recommend Zeal DJ Network and if I ever have an event where a DJ is needed,
they will be the first ones that i call !
August 10, 2008 Wedding Dawn & Don Long Island New York
"Thanks for making our day perfect !!"
You guys did a terrific job !
August 6, 2008 Wedding Cindy Marks "Excellent DJ's" Maine
Excellent isn't even sufficient enough to describe these guys !!!
They did a superb job and had an excellent mix of music.
They drove all the way to Maine for my event.
They even helped with filling the drink cooler when needed !!!
I will hire them again..
Barry, I can't thank you enough.. Your the best...
August 5, 2008 USS Berkeley "Great DJ Service" San Jose CA
The Zeal DJ Network provided a great selection of music for our U.S. Navy ship's reunion USS Berkeley.
Our DJ, Matt was very in tune with our group, and the feedback from our members was very appreciative.
We highly recommend the Zeal DJ Network, and their price was the lowest we found.
July 16, 2008 Wedding Nikki West Warwick RI
"An Awesome Experience !"
Everyone from Zeal was so personally involved in my wedding reception that it not only made it such a sucess,
but made one of the very big aspects of my wedding just really easy to deal with.
Barry was as easy to call or email as any of my bridal party was if i needed something or had a question !
What a relief with all the other stressful aspects of preparing for a wedding and all the other vendors to deal with !
I'm glad Zeal DJ Network was so easy and friendly to do business with--
not to mention so very cost effective !
July 10, 2008 Wedding Dan C. "Five star service" Plymouth Mass
Thanks to everyone at Zeal DJ for a great job !!!
My email and phone calls were always promptly returned if I had any questions.
And our DJ Matt was great, he had all the music we wanted from country, to top 40, to heavy metal.
We all had a great time and I would definitely use your service again.
July 1, 2008 Wedding D. Robbins Narragansett RI
"Professional, Accommodating, Outstanding"
We used Zeal DJ on 6/28/08, for our only daughter's wedding.
I have to admit, I was leery about using the internet to find a DJ service for such a special occasion.
But, it didn't take long until I knew I made the right choice.
Barry went above and beyond providing us with song choices, special requests, and ideas.
He was always available to answer any questions I had along the way.
They certainly kept the dance floor jumping and knew how to mix it up so everyone, both young and old enjoyed themselves.
Would I use them again - indeed !
Would i recommend them to you... without hesitation.
June 8, 2008 Tracey "Very Pleased" Warwick RI
The DJ's were great, they got right on the dance floor an interacted with the guests.
We had a lot of children at the party, the DJ was great with them.
The variety of music was perfect and I would HIGHLY recommend this company to friends and family !!!!
May 27, 2008 Jack and Jill Billie Jean Theriault Mass.
We had a great time at my sister's Jack and Jill.
The DJ was nice and helpful.
He listened to all the guest's requests and really facilitated the dancing.
May 19, 2008 Bill "Zeal always delivers" North Attleboro MA
We have used Zeal entertainment for 5 functions to date and they have yet to dissapoint..
The DJ's are very professional and interact very well with the crowd..
They will play whatever type of music you want..
Take requests, and make the whole atmosphere a whole lot of fun.
I highly recommend Zeal DJ Service.
April 29, 2008 School Department Bethany Swanson Coventry RI
Zeal DJ Network entertained us at our schools Father/Daughter dance.
Steve, the DJ, was very interactive and patient with the kids and enthusiastic in corralling the fathers to participate.
They were very professional.
There was a variety of music.
It was a great night !!
April 14, 2008 Wedding "Had a great time !!!" Brockton MA

Thanks Mike for doing a great job !!
April 9, 2008 Tracey Vaudry Lincoln RI
"You've got a winner in Nick !!" Fundraiser
What a great guy !!
I was very happy with how professional and caring Nick was during this event !
He was sensitive to the ages we had in the crowd and played appropriate music.
This event is not something he had to do and he did it whole heartedly !
Even with short notice.
With his efforts on the mic announcing raffles, t-shirt sales etc...
We raised over $3000.00 on Sat. March 29th 2008 alone !
Derek Lemay's fundraiser was a success and he helped make it a success!
March 9, 2008 Devon "They Rock !" Barrington RI
I was so lucky to find Zeal DJ Network for my friends surprise party !
The owner Barry was just wonderful to work with.
He went out of his way to communicate with me and prepare for the event.
I had special requests for songs and announcements throughout the night....
Not one of them was a problem at all.
Our DJ host was upbeat and kept the fun rolling all evening.
I am even using them again for another party in the week and I am very excited because I know it will be terrific and I will not have any worries !
I would highly recommend them for any size party, wedding, and event because they are a top quality company !!!
December 8, 2007 Sue "Very entertaining !" Middleboro MA
Nick was the DJ assigned to perform at my daughter's sweet 16 party.
He was very professional and very entertaining.
He played all the music that the kids enjoy and had his special ways of getting the kids to get up and dance.
I would highly recommend him for a type of party or special occasion.
I feel that the cost was the best !
Being a single mom, you have to watch your expenses - and this company was the best I saw out there !
Thanks so much Nick.

Thank you for a great night that we won't forget !!
October 29, 2007 Sandra "Excellent attention to detail" Mass.
I gave Zeal a try sight unseen.
Talked to Barry and I knew I was in good hands.
Barry (the owner) did everything to make me feel 100% comfortable that everything would be perfect, and it was.
We had them for a house party for a 50th bday party for my husband.
They had the Red Sox game World Series to compete with and still it was just great.
They came equipped with everything possible you could imagine.
I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.
October 21, 2007 Wedding Jake & Lane Brattleboro VT

"Above and Beyond our expectations !"
Zeal DJ Service did an extraordinary job at our wedding reception !
We were so impressed with Barry and Mike and the attention to detail that they gave to our reception music.
Their service went above and beyond what we expected.
They took the time to listen to our suggestions and even took the time to practice name pronunciations so the day would be perfect !
My husband and I were absolutely blown away with the fantastic service that Zeal DJ provided at our wedding reception.
They played the perfect mix of music from oldies, party music, dance, Polish(per our request), to modern.
They were also interactive with the crowd which kept everyone on the dance floor all night.
We were absolutely impressed with the job Zeal DJ Service provided for our wedding reception, they truly helped us make it a night to remember.
We would recommend them with the highest honors to help you celebrate your upcoming event !
Thanks so much Zeal DJ's !
September 3, 2007 Lisa "FANTASTIC !" Mass.
Zeal DJ Network recently did our 25th Anniversary party.
I just wanted to say that they were fantastic !
Everything went off without a hitch and they did what they could to work with the crowd.
I would definitley hire them again.
July 28, 2007 John Moniz "Excellent Service" Attleboro MA
Barry and his team had a very wide variety of music available so everyone enjoyed the fun regardless of their musical preferences.
They showed up in plenty of time to havev their equipment set up and ready to go at the appointed start time.
They were very enthusiastic and had the crowd into it in no time at all.
A great experience and all handled in a very professional manner.
And they are very affordable.
I highly recommend them.
I hired the Zeal DJ Network for a Jack and Jill. Not many of us had ever been to one, so were unsure what the "normal" things were. Michael Fontaine was very flexible and was able to create a night that everyone enjoyed! I had tried to contact a NH DJ and I didn't get the level of comfort that Zeal DJ Network had given me. I never once fealt like I was going to be ripped off or unhappy with the service! Thank you Zeal DJ Network!

We planned our wedding from across the country over the phone. Barry at Zeal DJ was a professional from the start of the planning process and we couldn't have been happier with the outcome. Our wedding day was outstanding! Numerous guests asked where we found our great DJ. Of the positives, I really liked that Zeal traveled to location (all across New England) for no additional charge and there prices were lower than every local DJ we looked at.
Oct 10 2010 Jack & Jill Shower "Zeal DJ ! My best choice !
This company was voted by many brides as being among the very best DJ services
They did our Jack & Jill shower on oct 10th 2010 Zeal DJ is now our selected wedding DJ choice for April 30 2011.
After DJ shopping for so long we realized there are many confusing similarities between DJ pricing
and unfortunately a lot of sales talk among DJ’S . This company really walks the talk ! .
One of the owners “ Barry “ seemed like a wedding planner and DJ combined !
This company refers themselves as the DJ Performance Leaders , and for very good reasons ! We spent endless hours comparing DJ services that were following their lead ! Many proclaimed they had better rates , pro equipment , best service .
What I did encounter was a few too many DJ’S that attempted to offer the same exact marketing concept as Zeal DJ from their own web site !! Almost like re -inventing the hamburger ! Just being honest ! Im ok with entry level services as long as they are being honest .of their ability’s , , and provide the amount of years they have been registered as a legitimate business ? Very hard to believe ,some services had limited experience , no insurance , not even licensed as a company !
Just like me , take the time to decide ! If your considering a great DJ service , , it’s a real no brainier ! Go Zeal !
Zeal DJ is the best reputable affordable DJ service that I could find anywhere !
Thank You very much Zeal DJ ! Can’t wait for April 30th 2011 ! Adrianna Nelson
Zeal DJ Network response:
Thank you so much for your review
Since your review is remarkably different and so positive
I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to respond to your business assessment .
Zeal DJ is supported by staff members that are solely dedicated to our company’s best interest and our clients .
During peak seasons we very grateful for smaller independent services that we have employed or contracted ,
One of our successful concepts of business is to allow our DJ’S to focus entirely on their individual performance during their assigned event while other staff members like myself allocates our time entirely on customer service planning and preparation !
What you have witnessed is another example of what we proudly provide consumers each and everyday !
Yes our business is very competitive .
Based on your assessment you are very correct entry level company’s can certainly be well respected
if honesty is used within efforts of marketing .
Our advice constructively is to be yourself and innovatively be different with confidence
as opposed to copying another successful service .
Demonstrating efforts of individuality while marking and developing a web site is a good start !
While developing your business learn and develop the actual craft of entertainment .
Our actual testimonies that we post on our web site were earned by good DJ performances and great customer service efforts ..
Most assuredly our testimonies posted were earned certainly not copied and pasted from another web site to satisfy our own best interest , Its really takes more than good performance efforts at a event to earn a testimony that is posted on our web site .
Even if you’re a former DJ / employee flattered by past compliments that may have been partially or solely directed to you , copying and pasting former testimonies that was intented for the actual hired company’s web site without permission is really dishonest and is breaking copy right protection regulation laws
As a experienced business owner I have a great deal of patience and respect for other hard working services within reason .
Many are trying desperately within a difficult economy while others could be marketing their services
dishonestly , unfairly , and as you noted non- legitimate ,,
such dishonesty earns no merit or respect from consumers , business owners and inevitably the legal system
Thank you once again for your kind acknowledgment
We are looking forward to April 30 2011 (( Your wedding ))

I have now used this company 2 times for myself and once for my god daugthers wedding. They are so friendly and helpful from the first day we talk to the last one. They know how to get your guest up and moving. Never a boring time with them.. I am 100% pleased with them and will use them again in the future. Dont pass this company by. You won't be dissappointed!!!
September 18, 2010 Wedding Betty West Warwick RI
I used this DJ service in September 2010 for my wedding. Everything I asked for was in place. The DJ was very professional and polite. He had a great sense of humor and my guests had a great time.
September 18, 2010 Wedding "Great for the Price" Brian Warwick RI
I was initially very surprised at the low cost of ZEAL DJ NETWORK when checking various DJ rates for my upcoming wedding; most were at least $1,000 for the night, where ZEAL was considerably less, and un-like most others, they did not require or ask for a deposit. Barry, the owner & operator of the company was extremely infortmative and very easy to talk to in terms of planning everything. He makes you feel at ease almost immediately. He helped make the planning process go as smoothly as possible, and was always very prompt with returning phone calls. He was always right on top of things. The actual DJ, whose name unfortunately escapes me at the moment, did a fantastic job. Everything was set-up inside & out before my bride & I arrived at the venue. He had all the pre-rquested music queued up in the exact order we had asked for, and the ceremony & reception was flawless in terms of the music. The DJ also did a very good job at getting people on the dance floor, and gernally making sure everyone was enjoying themselves with various games & photo ops. He was also very receptive to on the spot requests, and did a very good job with playing everything that was asked for almost immediately.

Wedding and Ceremony " Susan Providence RI
I hired The Zeal DJ Network for my outdoor ceremony and Wedding Reception . The work and service efforts that the owner provided us was great ! Within one month prior to my wedding , they provided our formal dances on a cd for my review ! More than several follow up calls was made by their customer service department and assigned DJ . The DJ was fantastic , certainly much more than I expected . I highly recommend this service to anyone that really is counting on a DJ service that will deliver what they promise ! High quality and very affordable ! Sue Providence RI
September 11, 2010 Wedding "Beyond Amazing!" Jenn Westport MA
Mike the DJ was the best thing that ever happened to our wedding! He played exactly what we wanted...he interacted just enough with our guest and people are still raving about how perfect our wedding was.... Zeal DJ Network was a life saver!!
July 17, 2010 Wedding "GREAT DJ" Melinda & Scott Stachelek Providence RI
I was married on July 17, 2010 and chose Zeal DJ Network for my choice of service. I was so pleased with the quality of their service. They were very professional and they made sure they played the types of music we wanted to be played at our wedding. With the wide variety of ages at the wedding they were able to keep all our guests dancing all night long. Everyone had a great time thanks to these guys. I recommend Zeal Dj Network to anyone who is looking for a dj that is going to give them 100% great service!
Zeal DJ Network is wonderful. We had used them for our 25th Anniversary party, my 50th birthday party and they were so great, we decided we needed to have them for our daughter's wedding. They are great to work with and play music to suit all tastes. Each DJ interacts with the crowd to make everyone have a great time. I would recommend this business to everyone that wants their party to be a great hit. We got a lot of compliments after the wedding because of these guys. You won't be disappointed if you hire Zeal DJ Network.
June of 2010 Family Reunion "Our RI Favorite Family DJ'S ! " Beth Newport RI
Really cant say enough good things about their services . All I can say is they are great DJ’S and nice people that we have employed several times for many events . June of 2010 , they were hired for our family reunion at colt state Park ! I hired Zeal over two years ago for my wedding at the Crown Plaza In RI Let me start by saying over 300 guest ! We were very nervous if the sound system would be adequate for such a large audience , The owner repeatedly assured me that all acoustic issues if any would be addressed well before guest arrivals . Our wedding was very involved and im sure was quite challenging for all of the vendors involved . Zeal DJ services made our dreams come true ! They created a story book wedding that many of my friends have been talking about for two years

June 12, 2010 Reception & Fundraiser "Top recommendation" Mike/Jane Boston MA
Zeal did our wedding reception/fundraiser for Special Olympics. The owners were very gracious and attentive to us. The DJ Mike was awesome - kept everyone on the floor dancing and singing karaoke. He was great with everyone particularly the youngsters. Zeal made the reception a success. We also received a CD at the end of the night of our music. Thanks so much ...we have seen things go wrong with DJ services before and we are so grateful that everything was so beyond our expectations!
June 12, 2010 Wedding "Great Wedding DJ'S" Shelly Andrews Hartford CT
The Zeal DJ Network provided wonderful music and a great sound system at my ceremony in RI. Within another venue in Hartford CT , I hired them for my wedding reception. Both DJ's did a great job. I was very nervous not knowing what type of quality services I could receive within the limits of my budget . My mind was at total ease after hiring this company . Very experienced and caring ! I was one of several Brides who voted for this service as being The Knots best wedding DJ service of 2010 .
May 24, 2010 Birthday Party "Great time had by all!!" Michelle Swansea, MA
I hired Zeal DJ Network for my Mom's 75th birthday party..needless to say not your average 75th party. The place was rockin all night long, my mom never left the dance floor!! Nick was great. He played everything we reqested and interacted with the crowd. Barry, the owner kept in touch with me during the whole planning process and made my mom's party a time we'll never forget. Thanks guys for a great night!!
May 1, 2010 Wedding "Great Personal Service" Kristina RI
Barry worked with us the entire time to make sure that we had all the music we needed and wanted for our ceremony and reception. He even went out of his way to provide us with a copy of a special karaoke song in replacement of a father-daughter dance ahead of time so I could practice. I would recommend him and his services to any other couple.
May, 17 2010 Wedding Robin NY "Wedding of a Lifetime"
We used Zeal DJ Network, I thought the dj was great. He interacted with the guests, played everything we requested and what our guests enjoyed. I had also witnessed them at a wedding and a birthday party before. I hired them and thought they did a wonderful job thats why I hired them. I highly reccommend them if you want to have a good time.

DJ Barry at ZEAL listened to what my husband and I wanted and made the planning easy.
Their simple documentation and contracts were very helpful, and they were always very prompt and responsive when we would contact them. Our reception was a blast, and ZEAL really figured out what our guests wanted to hear.
I would highly recommend ZEAL for any wedding or event.
April 30th ,2011 Wedding Wedding

I would recommend them to anyone!
This customer had a POSITIVE experience with this business.
This customer WOULD recommend the business to a friend, family member, neighbor or colleague.
January 11 th Wedding CT Wedding " Anita B
DJ After searching for a DJ for quite some time, I stumbled on an advertisement for Zeal DJ Network and decided to inquire on their company. Immediately after briefly talking with Barry, I instantly realized this company was extremely customer focused. It's the type of company that goes the extra mile to ensure 110% customer satisfaction. We had specific needs for our wedding such as a fun DJ who wasn't over the top like a baseball announcer. The great part about this company is it's not restricted to 1 or 2 DJ's, but rather a network that has different personalities to fit your specific needs. In the event something happened to your DJ last minute, someone else could fill the spot. Upon meeting with Barry and expressing our needs, we were paired up with Mike. Upon meeting with Mike, we knew he was the right DJ for us. His personality was excellent and he is highly recommended. Barry went above and beyond our expectation as he followed up frequently to ensure nothing was missed and when we seeked advice he always was there to help us out. His prices can't be beat and I am shocked they aren't double what they are, and even so customer service is priceless when we are talking about a wedding. We have received numerous comments on how great Mike
was as he got people on the dance floor but did so with without being overbearing.
He is a skilled professional. He played ALL of our requested music and the music we didn't want played was accomadated.
I highly recommend everyone looking for a DJ in the New England area to absolutely give Zeal DJ Network a call.

We actually first contacted the Zeal DJ Network through Craigslist! The owner Barry was wonderful to talk to and work with and guided us every step of the way. They have many DJ's and will cater to your personal tastes and styles of music - never questioning, but encouraging your musical choices. Follow up and confirmation a week before the wedding and two days before the wedding also added a level of reassurance. Incredible value! Mike and Debbie our wedding DJ's were phenomenal. No details were missed, all of our required songs were played, and we have mixed in some karaoke as well.

My MIL found Zeal through Craigslist and since I was running out of time (3 months to go)
I called Barry right away! From the very first phone call, I knew this was the perfect fit for us.
Barry explained everything about their company in great detail,
and really listened to what we needed and wanted for our big day.
Their planning sheet makes everything a breeze,
and I was still able to make changes even though I had submitted it right away.
Our DJ Mike was awesome! He called to confirm every detail, including how to pronounce
everyone's names often, kept everybody out on the dance floor and kept the whole day running smoothly.
They found every special song we had requested and played a variety of music.
The only thing I suggest is if you want a genre or even just one song played that's not usually played during a reception
(country music for us), make sure you mention it in the planning stages
because your DJ may not have what you want on the big day.

Zeal DJ Network is an excellent choice
if you are looking for good service at a great price!
Barry was wonderful to deal with and paid close attention to all of our needs and wants. He was courteous and professional and took all the time we needed to correspond up to the day of our wedding.
The forms of payment and payment plans made life so much easier!
Their online database for music made music choices that much easier.
Jeremy was our DJ and he too was corteous and professional.
He went with the flow when some plans got
changed at the last minute due to the rain.
My only issue was that the music wasn't loud enough and my husband couldn't hear the songs that were playing as the bridal party and then I made our walk down the aisle.
But again- Jeremy wasn't stationed in the optimal spot because of the changes made due to the weather so I think he did the best he could given that. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, professional and flexible DJ to work with I would highly recommend going with Zeal DJ Network!

We could not have been happier with Zeal DJ. I wanted to make our entire wedding playlist, and so I gave them a list of songs and they found them all and made a playlist, and then Mike mixed it up and played different songs from the playlist depending on the mood of the room. They met with us before the wedding to discuss the song list and what we'd need, and even made us CDs of the songs to make sure they'd be playing the right versions ... we didn't want a loud DJ who'd be doing a lot of talking, we just wanted someone to play good music, and that's exactly what we got!t.

Zeal DJ Network is awesome for weddings.
Our DJ Tim had the entire wedding on their feet the entire night.
He arrived super early to our wedding which
was a long drive for him and set up everything.
With the announcements into the reception,
he went over instructions and made sure he had everyone's names correct multiple times.
He handled the speeches, handled the music perfectly...
I can't say enough compliments to Tim about what a great job he did.
We had a little hiccup with our venue because they were trying to drag out dinner,
and Tim took control of the situation and pushed the party right along.
He was fun and personable. He was outgoing but definitely not obnoxious.
He made the party about me and my husband.
I would recommend Zeal (especially Tim) to anyone looking for a DJ for anything!!

After looking locally and finding nothing in my budget
I expanded my search and found this Rhode Island based DJ service,
who travelled all the way to southern Vermont for half the price any local DJ would charge.
Barry was great at answering questions and quick to respond.
My biggest complaint would be they were too thorough. lol!
Barry and our DJ Christian were a bit long winded but who cares!
They were punctual and followed our timeline to the minute.
My groom & stepmom commented on how much they liked Christian and how friendly he was.
People were on the dance floor until the last song and completely enjoyed themselves.
I couldn't have asked for things to have gone better.
