Al and I wanted to thank Verducci Entertainment for all their efforts to ensure our wedding reception last Saturday night was a success. The Rathskellar Room was the perfect venue for our party. Even though we put this event together on short notice, their staff was accommodating and understanding with us. They guided the night in an orderly fashion and moved the party though the night with ease. Their choice of music was (right on) for the crowd of people we had and your help with mixing the background music for our own dear Nickole to sing to was wonderful.
Their arrival added the final theatrical touches with your lights, and it turned out beautiful. Your added extra videoing was an asset to the evening. We will highly recommend You and Verduccies again and again to our friends and associates.
Again THANK YOU!
- Alan Meadows, Alameda Elks Club- Alameda, CA
“There really are no words to convey how happy I am with Verducci Entertainment. Being an Event Planner I was lucky to have many vendors to choose from when it came to planning my own wedding, but there was no doubt I would hire Verducci Entertainment from the get-go. They were one of the very first vendors I booked for my wedding.
They took care of the music, timeline, emcee, photo booth, lighting and monogram on the dance floor. I didn’t worry about a thing! Even my Bridesmaids were able to relax and enjoy the party, knowing we were in great hands with them.
They did an excellent job of keeping us on schedule, organizing the bridal party for the grand entrance and keeping the guests on the dance floor. Their staff managed the photo booth, and made an AMAZING keepsake video for us. They even shot off our confetti cannon at midnight, and caught it on video!
Being that we had a New Year’s Eve wedding, there was an extra element of the reception that was completely taken care of. Everything was perfect!! People are still raving about how great our DJ’s were!! They are professional, reliable, responsive and AMAZING to work with. Any Bride that wants to enjoy her day worry free should hire Verducci Entertainment.”
- Courtney Carmingnani, St. Mary’s College- Moraga, CA
“Verducci Entertainment was at our 34th Anniversary Holiday Ball (Naval Academy of Northen CA parents club). They have been our DJ for our Ball the last few years, and they always does a FANTASTIC job. Great music! They are the first one there, last one to leave. They can make everyone get down on the dance floor. Everyone, the parents, and their midshipmen (students at the US naval academy) all had a great time.”
- Ling Ling Chan, Marines Memorial Hotel- San Francisco, CA
“Verducci Entertainment recently did the lighting and sound for a Zumba Charity event I was involved in. The staff was very helpful in the planning process, and went above and beyond to make this event a success. The lighting was amazing, and I could not have asked for a better set up. They also were great at correspondence, were always on time, easy to talk with. Overall- it was a great experience. I would use this company again in a flash. I am dying to use their new photobooth with special lighting.”
- Megan Ahalim, WTKDC- Oakland, CA
“What a great party it was! The lighting was awesome, and Andrew just went over the top for us again. The police officers and their families were dancing the night away. We can’t wait for our next party two years from now!”
- Isaac Benabou, Marriott Hotel- Pleasanton, CA
“What a fabulous party!! Thank you thank you thank you for the wonderful “look” and “sound” of our party. The photobooth was a BIG HIT not to mention all the props; the lighting was spectacular.. what a wonderful surprise…your professionalism and wonderful staff, the music and always keeping in touch was so very helpful – thank you!!!
Many of the staff got together and watched the video. The smiles and laughter started all over again! We all had our memories but when we watched the video many were again commenting on how really fabulous our Christmas Party was – the BEST EVER!!!”
- Teresa Proano, Holiday Inn- South San Francisco, CA
“Everything went perfectly. All of the right and appropriate music was played and Lawrence was professional and courteous. We would definitely consider Verducci for future needs. Thank you for working on the price for me and for the excellent customer service! Happy Holidays.”
- Dee Dee Dutra, Sheraton Hotel- Pleasanton, CA
“Verducci Entertainment took care of us from the minute we told him that we were engaged! He was always concerned about taking care of us and making sure that our special day was everything that we ever dreamed of. They were always in contact with us throughout the wedding planning process and he made sure that we were always comfortable with what was going on. The up lighting that he provided at the reception was outstanding and the photobooth was a huge hit for us at our wedding; everyone danced and took photo’s all night long. It was extremely rare to see even one person sitting the whole night. Verducci Entertainment was a pleasure to work with and they will make your wedding day an unforgettable one!”
- Dana Pitcher, Basque Cultural Center- South San Francisco, CA
“Well do I start! I would give this company 20 stars if I could! Verducci Entertainment was my entertainment company for my wedding this past weekend. Saying that they exceeded my expectations is an understatement! Let me give you a few reasons why:
1. I had only contacted him for my reception because my venue had assured me that they could hook up any of my music I wanted for the ceremony no problem. ( I checked the day before and it worked) Well as I am about to walk down the aisle my photography runs up to inform me that the music wont play! As I am about to freak out and cry they quickly disconnected one of their speakers and moved it over to the ceremony area and grabbed my hubby’s Iphone and hooked it up in a matter of seconds so I could walk down the aisle the way I have always dreamed! Not to mention somehow they found out what song we wanted to walk back down to and had that playing as well once the ceremony was over! ( this was an hour and half before he was suppose to start)
2. I had decided to go with some of their “up-lighting” to add “ambiance”. I had only paid for 4 to accent the head table. Once I returned to the reception area ( after pictures) I noticed the room glowing in my wedding colors! It looked breath taking! I had mentioned the day day before that I was concerned about the lighting (since it was outside and dark). They reassured me it would be great! Once I had a second to sit down they asked if everything looked okay.( They added about 4 extra lights around the room) I had told them to let me know what the difference was and I would make sure I got that to them that night and they told me it was no problem. The company just wanted it to look perfect!
3. Planning professional- They were speaking to my photographer the whole night and wanted to double check if we needed to shift a few things around so I didn’t miss out in any great pics before the photographer left. Thank goodness he was thinking of that. We did and I had people complementing me that the order had flowed so nicely.
4. Dj-ing skills: They played music ALL night to keep the dance floor jammin! Music fit us perfectly! I was really vague on the packet I returned to them and they were really on their own.
5 Photobooth- enough said! Hit of the whole wedding! They even had a photobooth attendant there to make sure everything went smoothly. So many fun props set out.
6. All the extras: They let me “dj” which made for the cutest picture ever! He took lots of pictures of everyone dancing and is sending them to me. The company also took VIDEO which I can’t wait to see!! And made me 2 CD’s with all the music from the wedding!!! Who does that?
Honestly without Verducci Entertainment I do not think our wedding day would have turned out half as good! I will recommend him and his company to EVERYONE and ANYONE! They always said in his emails, “we are here for you and just want to make it the best day ever” and I can truly say they mean it! Thank you Verducci Entertainment!”
- Frank and Katie Laboy, Callippe Golf Course- Pleasanton, CA
“My daughter’s wedding was wonderful….and you had a lot to do with it. I want to thank you for the great job you did both as our disc jockey and with the awesome lighting….the lighting on the cake could not have been more perfect. You also did a perfect job with the music. I never thought I’d be able to dance to my daughter’s music; but somehow it turned out wonderfully for all of us. My one regret is that I hadn’t found you before I contracted a photo booth with another vendor. Your photobooth price was less and I’m sure I wouldn’t have encountered the technical difficulties we ended up having. My wedding coordinator is thrilled that I found you and she said she will be using you for many more events. She loves the fact that you are not only diligent and thorough and fabulous at your work…but that you are a one stop shop….with disc jockeys, incredible lighting and photobooth. It is so much easier to deal with one vendor than so many. I’ll be giving your name out to anyone I know giving a party or wedding or any other event. Thanks again for helping make my daughter’s wedding an event none of our guests will ever forget.”
- Simonetta Balliet, The Payne Mansion- San Francisco, CA
“I just want to say thank you. You did a great job and you have a great company. You are easy to do business with. Keep up the good work and I hope the Grand Hyatt will put you in their prefer vendor list.”
- Pablo Reynaga, The Grand Hyatt Hotel- San Francisco, CA
“I can’t say enough about how WONDERFUL Verducci Entertainment was to work with. From the get-go, they were very responsive and always took the time to answer all of my questions.
By the time we sat down with them for a face-to-face, I knew they were the perfect DJ company for our wedding. We booked up-lights, dance floor lighting, and 5 hours of DJ services.
Their pre-wedding packet was very complete, when we sat down the week before our wedding to finalize everything, they seemed to have a great understanding of what we were looking for and the kinds of music we wanted played.
They PROVED his understanding the day of the wedding.They showed up early and was completely set up even before our ceremony started (it was at a separate location, they were hired for reception-only.) The event flowed wonderfully. They MCed the event with out being intrusive and kept it moving, getting us to the all-important “fun” part of the evening quickly.
Our dance floor stayed full and we had a blast! The evening was perfect! I can’t wait to figure out something for which I can hire Verducci Entertainment again!”
- Sonia Ortner, Italian American Social Club- San Francisco, CA
“I wanted to thank you both for making our Howlin Halloween fest a HUGE success! Everything and everyone were completely professional, well organized and provided our customers with sheer entertainment for 2 hours! The photo border calling out Stonestown Galleria and our event name was a very nice touch. Again, kudos all the way around for a great event! I already have this down for next year. Thanks again!”
- Christine Miller, Stonestown Galleria- San Francisco, CA
“Everything went really well. We did have an electricity failure throughout the entire mall for about 20 minutes, but other than that the event went smoothly. Verducci Entertainment was great…personable and very accommodating! They offered to extend their stay at the event to make up for the 20 minute power outage, which made attendees and Stonestown very happy.
The quality of the photos were great and we loved the embellishments on the photo strip. Set up seemed easy and timely and the equipment was compact and aesthetic. Thanks for everything!”
- Karen Quiter, Stonestown Galleria- San Francisco, CA
“The feedback I have gotten to date is very positive and I have stated in my report that we should ask you to DJ next years event . Thanks for doing such a great job.”
- Orla Gallagher, San Mateo High School- San Mateo, CA
“The most important thing to us for our wedding on October 15, 2011 was the music and ambiance.
During our first in person meeting, Verducci Entertainment learned that we are quite passionate about music and they made it their mission to provide us with the perfect wedding day/night. It was just that, perfect, largely in part to what Verducci Entertainment contributed. From the up-lighting, to the dinner music, to the bridal party announcements and the dance music all night long he was exceptional and we couldn’t have been happier.
A lot of DJ’s will meet with you and tell you that they care about giving you everything you want but Verducci Entertainment took it to another level. They met with us 3 times before our wedding going over everything from the phonetic spelling of the bridal parties names to the timing of the day, reviewing our song choices and asking all the right questions.
In addition to their professionalism and infectious personality, they are perfectionist and made sure throughout the night that we were getting everything we wanted without being overbearing. I can’t thank them enough for the fun dance party they gave us and the tremendous experience we had from the initial consultations to our final dance on our wedding night.
I give Verducci Entertainment my highest recommendation and guarantee your experience will be as great as ours was! They aren’t only our DJ company now, they are our friend.”
- Julie Matiasic Ghiglieri, Ruby Hills Golf Club- Pleasanton, CA
“You did a bang up job with the entertainment. The photobooth was great, especially the larger size so groups were comfortable. The photostrips were also very well done and professional looking. I noticed that the line was steady throughout the entire event. The lighting was exceptional! Definitely above and beyond and we greatly appreciate your generosity in upgrading our lighting package. Lastly, the music selection was great and I think a good fit to the crowd and atmosphere. While the casino event was happening simultaneously I think people appreciated having good music. I know more people were interested in gambling than dancing in the beginning, but I noticed that most people were keeping the music beat or singing/humming along. I think you also did a great job of letting people know you were there without being pushy. And of course the dance floor was full towards the end of the event and everyone had a great time.
In summary, our experience with Verducci Entertainment was a real pleasure from beginning to end. Highly professional and exceeded our expectations. I will recommend your company to others and hope that I have the chance to use your services again.”
- Bryan Vander Lught (Genentech Corporate Event), Seascape Resort- Aptos, CA
“Our wedding was on September 24th at Chaminade in Santa Cruz, CA. The setting was perfect and Verducci Entertainment did an amazing job as DJ and MC for our wedding. From the beginning we really enjoyed working with them. We met with them multiple times to layout our music choices for the night. They were very thorough throughout the entire planning process and had great music recommendations. On the day of our wedding Verducci Entertainment showed up early, well prepared and was very professional. We had a light package that created an amazing effect on our wedding dance floor. Everyone including our wedding site coordinator was impressed with their performance throughout the night. We highly recommend using Verducci Entertainment for future events, and have already referred couples to them.”
Thank you guys!
- Melissa and Jeff Schwartz, Chaminade- Santa Cruz, CA
“We had a wonderful experience working with Verducci Entertainment. Verducci Entertainment also provided the uplighting for our venue. They were a dream to work with. Very helpful with suggestions and always responded timely with any questions we had via email or phone. During the reception they followed through with all details that we previously discussed in regards to timelines, introductions, and song choices. Verducci Entertainment was very adaptive to all last minute changes and took care of coordinating event order changes with our other vendors; photographer, videographer, etc. They made us feel reassured and confident as they had everything in control. Just what every bride needs to feel on their big day; no worries and a great smile to feel reassured.
The uplighting and equipment setup was perfect. We received several positive comments about our DJ. Everyone had a wonderful time and they had great charisma and energy that kept the party going start to finish. Verducci Entertainment were the epitome of great customer service and a vendor that pays great attention to detail. I definitely recommend Verducci Entertainment to everyone looking for a DJ or uplighting service. We would definitely hire them again for future events.”
- Mary Ann Fortes, The Citizen Hotel- Sacramento, CA
“I thought you guys did an awesome job. It was really easy to talk and work with you. You patiently listened to how we wanted the reception to play out and really helped take care of every single detail. I got a lot of comments on how people had fun at the wedding and that they were never bored. And I think that you guys played a big role in that.
What drew me to choose you guys was the fact that you take care of DJ, lights, as well as photo booth. All the elements that I wanted in a wedding were there. The uplighting turned out really good – it enhanced the look of the room. And the open dancing lighting was perfect too and even helped people. Thanks for being a great DJ – you really have the perfect voice and personality for it. And of course, people had so much fun with the photo booth.
I would definitely recommend Verducci Entertainment to other people.
- Jeanne Wu, Canyon View Dining Room- San Ramon, CA
“Misty and I met Lawerence while he was the DJ and MC at My sister’s wedding in Lake Tahoe. She was telling me that this is the DJ who has been the DJ at a lot of her friend’s weddings recently too. Everybody loves him as he works very closely with his clients, knows the best style of music to meet his client’s needs, and stays discretely behind the scenes while keeping the entire night running smoothly. He has a great voice and really knows how to honor the Bride and Groom.
I was extremely impressed with his professionalism. He really was the key to making our entire night go smoothly from the ceremony to the entrance to the first dance to the meal, to the speeches, to the games to the dance party and everything in-between. He also has a list of fun things to do -ask him about the newlywed game! He was able to bring outdoor speakers with music and wireless microphones and have the entire indoor area set up looking so beautiful with his up-lights to match our color scheme and his lighting tree to make the dance floor full of action. All of the wires were well hidden, the place looked incredible, and everything sounded great. The entire night went so smoothly and everyone was so impressed, they gave Misty and I all the credit when it was really Lawerence that made it all happen. I will keep recommending him to everyone that is in need of an awesome DJ / MC.”
-Ryan Farrelly- Pacifica, CA
“I want to report back to you that we were %100 happy with Daniel as our DJ. His guidance on our decorative lighting was perfect- not too few, not too many. He had obviously listened carefully to the guidelines, specific song requests, and general mood we wished to have at my party and created that from the first moment to the last. He was very professional and easy to work with. I would strongly recommend him to anyone in need of a DJ for their event, and many of our party guests commented on how good he was too! With Daniel’s help, my birthday party was a huge success, and I’m very, very grateful for him and all of his work. Thank you very much.”
- Gayle Linter, Private Residence- Orinda, CA
“Thank you so much for being such a great provider and photo booth just at our wedding. Everything just went so fast that I am glad you guys were able to capture moments for us.”
- Marissa Prado, Marriott Hotel- San Mateo, CA
“Now that’s what I call a Photobooth Arena! ha ha ….. Definitely the most unique, amazing, and electro-tastic photo booth that I’ve ever seen! I’ve been to many weddings especially as a DJ/MC and nothing tops this! Snapture/Verducci Ent…ertainment…you’ve out done yourselves this time! As the happy groom that night, this one gets a quadruple thumbs up! Great job! Can’t wait to see all the final Snapture shots on the thumb drive. Woop Woop! : )”
- Franco Finn, San Francisco Design Center- San Francisco, CA
“Everything was great! The wedding was amazing and we had no issues which was a huge relief. DJ Luke was great. He showed up early, had everything set up early and I could see that he was trying to make sure everything was done right. He played all the songs we wanted and took some requests. I will definitely recommend you to anyone that needs a DJ and/or other entertainment. We appreciate both your guys hard work in making it an amazing day for us.”
- Jesus Hernandez, Villa Montalvo- Saratoga, CA
“My husband and I had a long engagement and during our planning process people always said, it doesn’t matter what you have to eat, or what centerpieces you have, or what your cake looks like, the DJ is the most important part. I didn’t realize how true that was until afterwards. We hired Andrew Verducci and it was the best choice for our wedding. Andrew had been promoting his new business on facebook and decided to inquire. His prices were very reasonable and his pictures looked very professional. We booked him immediately. We also booked the basic lighting package. During our planning, he would e-mail to check in, and the closer we got to our wedding date, we had a quick meeting, another check in, and was always available for any questions or concerns we had.
As soon as my husband and I walked in to the reception area, I was amazed at what I saw. The lights were beautiful, the backdrop of the lighting trees were purple, which matched my color scheme, and the music was bumping. From the minute we walked in, to our very last dance, our guests were up and dancing, singing, and fist-pumping the night away! Andrew was very organized with the traditional “to-dos” throughout the night and was a wonderful MC! When Andrew approached me saying to get ready for the last dance, my heart dropped! I was not ready to stop dancing and partying with my close family and friends. Hiring Andrew Verducci from Verducci Entertainment was one of the best decisions for my wedding and would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding!!!”
- Jessica Griswold, Lafayette Park Hotel- Lafayette, CA
“The photo booth was a huge success. People loved it. We got some great shots that will be fun to use on our web site etc. And I would like to mention that Luke was a real pro – and also very personable. He did a superb job. Please let him know that we thought he fit in perfectly at Toad Hollow!”
- Frank Williams, Toad Hollow Vineyards- Healdsburg, CA
“Verducci Entertainment made our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah!! The guests had a great time and so did we. We worked with Andrew from start to finish. He was very hands-on, attentive to our needs, had great suggestions and kept us on track. While at the same time reminding us that the party’s focus was going to stay on our daughter. From her music selection, party favors, lighting and games, it was everything that she planned with Andrew, and more. Franco was our MC and did a great job along with Andrew keeping all of our guests on the dance floor. I will definitely use their services again.”
- Candice Benabou, Pleasanton Marriott- Pleasanton, CA
“Our event was fantastic. Lawrence did a wonderful job.”
-Russ Stryker, Ranchos Colorardos Swim Club- Lafayette, CA
We had the pleasure of having Verducci Entertainments be a part of our wedding ceremony and reception. We were introduced to them by the Marines’ Memorial Club and Hotel, which had them as a preferred vendor due to rave reviews from past events at the hotel. Andrew was our main contact and DJ. From the beginning Andrew was fantastic and always emphasized that our wedding was OUR day and that he would do whatever he could to make it our own. He definitely delivered because he made sure our wedding went smoothly by keeping to our schedule and getting all of our guests, of various ages, involved and having a good time. Andrew is very involved with the planning and if you want a good support person who understands how to create your vision of your special day, he is the one to go with. On the day of the wedding Andrew and another associate, Luke, arrived early to set up and test the equipment. They made their area look as if it were integrated into our reception hall with no visible cords and a sleek DJ station. After the wedding, my husband and I received countless praises from guests for Andrew and Luke. My mother, who attends many events for her company, said that they were the best she has ever seen. If you want to be as happy as we were with your DJ, then I strongly recommend Verducci Entertainments for your next event.

“We just used Verducci Entertainment for our wedding last weekend. Andrew and his crew went above and beyond to make our wedding as perfect as possible!!! The photobooth was an absolute hit, all the guests loved it! They were very organized, personable, and professional. Andrew also made the planning process very easy for us, which made our lives much easier. We would highly recommend Verducci Entertainment to anyone in need of a DJ and/or photobooth! Thank you so much Andrew! BEST day of our lives!”
- Kylie Beren, Ranch at Little Hills- San Ramon, CA
“Andrew, I just wanted to thank you for helping me out last minute with the song incorporated into my speech. I have been to many weddings and you by far have been the best. I received numerous compliments about how great you were. I know my sister and Kylie were very pleased. Thanks again. Congrats on an amazing job!
- Jillian Imrie (Maid of Honor), Ranch at Little Hills- San Ramon, CA
“PHENOMENAL EXPERIENCE! HIRE THEM!
I work in the bio-tech industry at Genentech with a group of high level professionals. My department of over 65 employees, flew in from China, Switzerland and the UK to join us here in the US for a two day offsite at the Oceano hotel. The meetings were intense and long and I was really hoping that our reception would allow my colleagues some team building and the opportunity to loosen up and enjoy themselves and one another.
Verducci Entertainment provided lighting and music throughout our cocktail, dinner and post-dinner reception and TRULY made our two day event memorable and a total BLAST! More than half of the executives were “cutting a rug” at once on the dance floor for several hours (back to back), including at least 4 people who said before “I don’t dance”. And more importantly the big boss from Switzerland!
Verducci Entertainment did a phenomenal job reading the crowd, getting people to dance and enjoy themselves and the cost was considerably low for the level of services! With over 800,000 songs in their music library, top notch disk jockeys, your event will surely be a success. For future reference in planning your events, I highly recommend hiring Verducci Entertainment!”
- Sandra Borelli (Genetech Administrative Assistant), Oceano Hotel- Half Moon Bay, CA
“We were just thrilled with your company and with Lawrence. The reviews I read on Project Wedding and Wedding Wire prior to contacting you were spot on and I am happy to add to the many praises your other clients have provided. In the planning stages, Lawrence was very nice, organized, and professional to work with. Lawrence asked the right types of questions and really made an effort to get to know me and Justin without the benefit of an in-person meeting. The packet was really helpful for us to fill out as well. Lawrence was great about reaching out to me, setting up meetings, and providing friendly reminders. He also graciously worked with my dad to ensure that my dad’s slideshow was executed perfectly and with our wedding planner. Lawrence made me feel very at ease that the event would run smoothly and it did! The day-of execution of the DJ and AV services was just wonderful and perfect. The ceremony set-up was great. The reader’s microphone stand was well-positioned and the Judge’s lapel microphone worked great. Due to the excess snow in Tahoe, we also had to change the ceremony to a new location and Lawrence had no trouble adjusting. During the reception, I was so pleased with Lawrence’s ability to politely control the flow of events. He executed the wedding timeline with precision and ease. He also did a great job managing the guests, particularly as they became more rowdy during the evening and requested songs. I greatly appreciate Lawrence’s assistance with the slideshow, including running through it before the wedding with my dad. The slideshow was very important to both my dad and me and it was executed perfectly. I loved the music selections during dinner and during dancing. Lawrence really knew how to mix the songs and get all of our guests on the dance floor. He even accommodated a belated request for Persian music from Justin’s family. His “last song” picks were spot-on without any guidance from us. Lawrence asked us but neither Justin nor I could think of any songs. The lighting was just beautiful and coordinated well with our decor. Lawrence did a great job with the wedding party entrances, including announcing a litany of difficult Persian names. Lawrence was an enthusiastic, classy,and talented DJ and we couldn’t be happier with his services. I cannot thank you and Lawrence enough for making our wedding day so special. I have no suggestions for improvement.”
- Meegan Maczek, Ritz Carlton- Truckee, CA
“My husband Kevin and I got married on June 11th, 2011 in the beautiful Lake Tahoe. Lawrence Arevalo was absolutely AMAZING from the start. He was professional and took the time to get to know my husband and I, and what we pictured to make this day perfect. As we all know things get crazy so close to the wedding, Lawrence took all of that stress off of me, he took over and let us enjoy our day. He was absolutely fantastic from the music, master of ceremony, etc!! He also brought a photo booth which honestly was the highlight of our reception. Everybody LOVED it and have already had quite a few family members ask about renting it for work events, family parties, etc. They had props for people to use, it was honestly so perfect!! Lawrence even designed our own letterhead for the pictures, so people will always look at that picture and remember our special day I could go on and on about how wonderful Lawrence and his crew is, thanks again Lawrence!!!”
- Kristalin, Private Residence- Tahoe, CA
“Andrew was our DJ for our 8th grade promotion dance. This was the 1st time that we had Verducci Entertainment play for our kids and was very pleased with “total package” he put on for us. It included a wonderful light show that matched our Mardi Gras theme, glow sticks he handed out to the dancers – that really got the crowd going, and music that was current and upbeat.
This was the first time I had arranged for a DJ for a middle school dance and initially I was concerned that I would not be able to find one that the kids would be happy with. I have heard often of how boring the dance / DJ was and that the songs were not what they wanted played and so wanted to make certain that this would be an enjoyable and memorable experience. I mentioned that to Andrew and he delivered. The majority of the feedback I have received it that the kids did not want the dance to end and I know that our DJ had a lot of do with that. And, never once did I see the dance floor empty!!!”

“We are a small organization which hosts a large outdoor 5k race in Golden Gate Park. This year we had the pleasure of working wit DJ Jake from Verducci Entertainment. He was extremely professional and personable. He got there early and was ready to roll with age appropriate music for our event. He played a large range of music that everyone enjoyed. He was having fun which translated to everyone there having fun as well. He was extremely helpful and went with the flow of the day. He followed the given program and rolled with the punches of the day. The equipment he brought was perfect and Jake was extremely low maintenance which can be hard to come by with some DJ egos. I would love it if DJ Jake came back again for our next event. Let me know if that works guys! Thank you again!!”
- Marya Kahan, Golden Gate Park- San Francisco, CA
“As an event planner, I have been fortunate to hire Verducci Entertainment several times for events. Always a pleasure to work with, Andrew does an amazing job of understanding what the client is looking for and delivering exactly that. Our most recent event was a party for graduating seniors at Saint Mary’s College welcoming them into the Alumni Association. Andrew and Lawrence came out to DJ and run their Photo Booth. The music was perfect, the photo booth was a blast and everyone had an excellent time. Lawrence did a great job of reading the crowd, and playing music that would keep them on the dance floor. The MC work of Lawrence was great as well. He has the perfect voice and personality for the mic, to keep your party moving. Guests that attended the event said it was “the best party they had ever been to”, no doubt due to the music and atmosphere created by Verducci Entertainment. I give them my highest recommendation to anyone looking for DJ services, and I am looking forward to having them DJ and MC my wedding in December!”
- Courtney Carmignani, St. Mary’s College- Moraga, CA
“Andrew did an amazing job at our wedding. From the minute we booked his services he was available to help us plan. His planning process helped us stay on top of what we needed to figure out and he provided suggestions along the way based on his experience.
Andrew did everything in his power to make sure we felt well taken care of and confident that the evening would go off without a hitch. He even sent me all the MP3s of our song selections to reassure me when the bridezilla-esque wedding anxiety dreams came!
We had a blast thanks to Andrew’s rocking tunes and DJ stylings. He was completely on top of the time line and worked well with our caterer and coordinator to make sure everything was on time and just how we wanted it. Many of our guests even asked for the play list or Andrew’s information because they had so much fun dancing the night away.
Thanks again, Andrew! I would recommend you to anyone interested in an amazing time.”
- Rachel Kleban, Mill Valley Community Center- CA
“You were awesome Andrew, thank you so much! I expected Michele to be around until 7:30 to help you out with the announcements and gathering of the people (as it was a bit of a challenge) for speeches, etc., but I noticed you did all that on your own. Thank you!
Tom and I, and our guests are very happy with your work. I got a lot of complements for your work and setup. It was a wonderful night for us. Thank you.”
- Layla Rahimi, Presidio Golf Course Clubhouse- San Francisco, CA
“I want to thank you for being part of the International Food Faire at St. Ignatius. Our DJ, Lawrence Arevalo, was absolutely wonderful! He is so easy to work with, and made everything go so smoothly. I’m sure they’ll want to use him for next year’s event. He even had a suggestion at the end on how to improve the sound next time. I will definitely recommend your company for any other events that come up, and once again, thank you!”
- Christina Visus, St. Ignatius High School- San Francisco, CA
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help on Saturday at the Best Buddies Friendship Walk! I know you gave us a very, very deep discount on your services and we cannot be more grateful to you for this act of kindness. Above all else though, thank you for being such a complete pleasure to work with. You’re passion for helping kids with disabilities is apparent and it made your work on Saturday even that much more special. I could not have asked for a better DJ for our event and I know I am not alone in my sentiments. Several people came up to me during and after the Walk to tell me how much they enjoyed your music, personality and work ethic. I was so grateful for your easy going nature and your flexibility with the regulations of the venue and our schedule. You took one huge worry off my long list of responsibilities. I knew I could put the sound, MCing, and music in your hands and everything would be perfect. I truly cannot thank you enough.
I will be sure to recommend you to any of the events I hear about in your area and, of course, I will contact you for our next Best Buddies event as well! Take care and thank you again!”
- Shelly Helgeson, Chrissy Field- San Francisco, CA
“Things went great as always. Andrew thanks so much for all your help, you put together a wonderful music round for our trivia night. Definitely was great about getting the students into it and pumped up. Very punctual, reliable, and I felt very comfortable trusting Verducci Entertainment with our event.”
- Suhail Shaikh, St. Mary’s College- Moraga, CA
“I just wanted to send Lawrence a quick note to thank him for doing such an incredible job last night. Our wedding was EXACTLY what we wanted – a big, boisterous dance party (oh yeah, and we said some vows). Everyone had a great time and we have been getting text messages & calls all day today from guests letting us know how perfect it was and how much fun the reception was…. The first song got everyone onto the floor and the dancing floor was packed all night! Thank you SOOOO much – we had an amazing time!”
- Ashley Snyder, Marines Memorial Hotel- San Francisco, April 9, 2011

We appreciated the extra effort you put into your presentation…the lights, the staging, and the little extras you provided like the dinner music, announcements, and your presence the entire evening to jump in whenever needed.”
- Susan Garell, Claremont Hotel & Spa- Berkeley, CA
“You were awesome, Everyone had a blast and everyone commented that they never had a NCL event last that long before with the girls staying there with their friends until the finish!! Great job and much appreciated!”
- Renee Kalmes, Claremont Hotel & Spa- Berkeley, CA
“This company is incredible. Andrew Verducci and Lawrence Arevalo are two of the most amazing men I have ever met. Lawrence was our actual DJ and did an outstanding job on our event. He worked well with our venue and stuck to the time line which was seamless. From our conversations over the phone to the in person meetings, Lawrence listened carefully to our concerns and made suggestions that we never would have thought of on our own. He is professional and personable and fit right in with all of our guests and their different tastes in music. I don’t think anyone stopped dancing the entire night. Andrew was constantly following up with us, making sure we had everything we needed. They were both so thorough and detail oriented that it provided us with a flawless day that by the end of the night, our guests did not want to leave! Thank you to Verducci Entertainment for making our wedding day such a huge success!”
- Christina Cavoretto, Exclusive Venue- San Francisco, CA
“Great job Friday night. Everyone was talking about it over weekend. The fathers and daughters were dancing their tail off! Thanks again! You should get some business out of that! Ok. On to the next one with Verducci Entertainment on February 26th.”

“Dustin’s Birthday was a big success! Thank you for all your hard work. The music was great, the vibe was great, and everyone had a wonderful time. In fact, a few days ago my neighbor came over and told us that he enjoyed the music from his bedroom and was wondering where he could get a play list… and believe me he is not an easy man to please . I will definitely keep you in mind for future events.”
- Jen Blair, Private Residence- San Lorenzo, CA
“Absolutely fantastic. Your commitment to providing a ton of fun was delivered in full. Everyone had an unbelievable time and I hope you had a bit of fun as well. There is no question I will be calling upon you again in the future and intend on writing up some comments on Yelp since that is where I found you and would agree wholeheartedly with the reviews you’ve been given. Your professionalism, customer service far exceeded all our expectations!
Thank you Verducci Entertainment!
- Jessie Rivera, Private Residence- San Ramon, CA
“We were absolutely pleased with everything while working with you. You did an incredible job and not only did everyone love you, everyone loved the music. Thank you so much for working with us to pick the song list and for meeting with me before our event. The caterer told me how you helped set up chairs and were very flexible when things got behind schedule. I have nothing but great things to say about you and your professionalism and will be sure to click on the links below (if it’s not too late). Thanks again for the advice, professionalism, the CD’s and your overall kindness. I hope you are doing well.”
- Lisa Lefrak, The Brazilian Room- Berkeley, CA
“THANK YOU so much for participating in Northern Light School’s first annual Fit For Life Jog-A-Thon and Health Fair. Your participation in our event helped make the event a HUGE success. Your DJ skills are amazing and truly kept the students and parents engaged and running! Many of the parents I’ve spoken to mentioned how great the music was. This event wouldn’t have been as successful without your support.”
- Julie Brown, Northern Light School- Oakland, CA
“Andrew from Verducci Entertainment did a fantastic job at our wedding with both lighting and music.
We initially interviewed Andrew after reading his good reviews. We weren’t sure we wanted or needed a DJ but we certainly wanted to know we would get what we wanted if we hired someone. Previously we had read reviews about DJ’s who insisted on playing their own music. Andrew was emphatic that we were in control and he was focused on making this “our day”. We decided on the spot to hire him as our DJ.
Over the next few months we exchanged a number of e-mails. I asked about lighting and Andrew mentioned they did some limited lighting but referred me to some lighting companies. I contacted the companies only to find that they sold “packages” starting at $1,600 for a limited wedding package. It was obvious that a wedding was not what most lighting companies considered their target market. After contacting the companies I contacted Andrew again and we worked on some ideas for uplighting. He worked with me to keep things in the budget I had allocated (Much less than $1,600) and let me know they had recently expanded the lighting options they offered. He put together a package of uplighting and dance lighting for our wedding reception that met our budget. I was thrilled!
Later Andrew had us complete a form to guide us on our wedding day so that both the ceremony and reception would be well coordinated on the timeline of events and the music to be played at key moments. For us this was especially important because part of our reception needed to be bi-lingual. Andrew knew which segments were his responsibility and which were those of the person speaking the additional language.
On the day of our wedding I showed up soon after the facility opened and saw that Verducci Entertainment was already mostly set up. They had already begun setting up for our outside wedding ceremony and were setting up the lighting and sound indoors. On the big day it’s a huge relief to see your vendors on time and busy setting up!
Both the wedding ceremony and the reception went off without a hitch and the lighting looked fantastic! I was thrilled we were able to make an austere venue look absolutely amazing with the lighting for a very reasonable price.
Thanks again Andrew, you deserve all five stars!”
- Christian Kruse, Gardens at Heather Farms- Walnut Creek, CA
“Thanks so much for all your help and hard work at our wedding. We had such a wonderful time and we hope that you enjoyed yourself too! We just did not want the music to stop and if we would not have had the 6pm curfew I think the party could have lasted much longer! Again we appreciate your great service and we hope to work with you again sometime! Thanks again for making our day special!”
- Katrina Battaglia, Monarch Cove Inn- Capitola, CA
“Andrew Verducci from Verducci Entertainment musical spinning talents rocked the McCabe/Isom wedding into the weee hours. We truly had “Time of Our Lives” and owe at least a good portion of that to you. So thank you, thank you, thank you for making our night so awesome. We look forward to sharing our love for your talent with all we know and …calling you for our future music needs! xoxo”
- KC Isom, Marines Memorial- San Francisco, CA
“Thank you so much for looking into every detail to make it happen and to be a great company to work with. Verducci Entertainment was awesome.

- Karen Barardi, Convent High School- San Francisco, CA
“A big thank you again for entertaining our guests at our wedding. The night could not have gone any better than it did. Kathryn, our coordinator, was also very impressed with you! Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to and they loved how you played all of the hits. I especially loved how you played all of our requests, as well as catering to the tastes of our guests. I was so happy that I loved and knew every single song you played. It really made the night fun for us! I very much appreciated your patience with us during the planning. From the beginning, you said you would be up for anything and were there to help us if we ever needed it. We sent a few requests that were not typical and you were able to come through with them. The CD’s afterwards are a fabulous touch, and the CD of our string pre-ceremony music has quickly become one of my favorite CD’s to listen to while commuting! It’s such a fun way to remember the day! I’d like to also thank you for being so punctual with responding to emails and phone calls. I cannot tell you how easy you made my job as a bride. From our first phone call, you assured me that you’d help make this the best day of my life and you completely succeeded. Never once did I question our decision to hire Verducci Entertainment. Whenever it came to the music, I had complete faith that it’d be perfect, and it was more than perfect! We had a blast with you, Andrew! I’m a bit sad that the wedding is over. You made a fantastic impression on all of our guests and I look forward to enoying your talents and professionalism from a guests point of view next time!”
- Tracy and Mike Novak, Forest House Lodge- Foresthill, CA
“We thought you did an incredible job. Everything went smoothly and your music selection was excellent. We had a lot of compliments on your performance and we thought it was perfect. Your equipement all seemed to be of the highest quality, sound levels were always perfect throughout the whole day. We were really impressed and very happy to have you there. There really wasn’t anything else we could have asked for. I’ll be sure to recommend you to anyone in need of a DJ. Thanks again and take care.”
- Daniel and Brie Smith, Rancho Nicasio- Nicasio, CA

- Kristi Estes, St. Vincent de Paul- San Francisco, CA
“It was great fun at the Back to School Hoe Down you DJ’d last weekend at our school. I thought you were a refreshing new mix of personality and great romp-stomping music. The dances you organized were great ice breakers and drew in the parents to dance along with all the kids. You have such a sparkling personality everyone wanted to join you on the dance floor! And, best of all, you kept the music clean and appropriate – and from a parent point of view, that is great!
Thanks for making our event such a blast!”
- Jacqui Fiels Lewis, St. Vincent de Paul- San Francisco, CA

“We had our wedding at Thomas Fogarty in Woodside on 07/17/10. Andrew was our DJ. We can’t say enough great things about Andrew. We were planning our wedding from LA, didn’t have a lot of time, when we started talking to Andrew, it was like about 1.5 month before the wedding, we were slightly worried that we might not find the perfect DJ since we were so behind. But after the first meeting we had with Andrew, we stopped worrying about anything. He was warm, energetic, paying full attention in what we need and making many valuable suggestions. Both of us felt really comfortable with him and we signed with Andrew without interviewing anybody else. And it was a great decision we made! Andrew always replied our emails and calls instantly and always checked in with us see how everything was. And on the wedding day, by the way, was also his b-day. Andrew was professional, exciting and everyone had a great time during the whole time of the wedding. He also brought some awesome props for the dancing part and all of our best and funniest pics are of people with the props. Go with Andrew, you won’t regret.”
- Fan Tye, Thomas Fogarty Winery- Woodside, CA
“Everything at the event was great. Serge did a great job of balancing music for different generations in the room. Everyone had a great time, and the dance floor was full from start to finish!”
- Courtney Carmignani, St. Mary’s College- Moraga, CA
“We just had our wedding on 7/10/10 at Toll House Hotel and Verducci Entertainment was great from the planning process to the end of the event !!
We first met with our DJ, Andrew, in January. Andrew was warm and professional. We decided to book him right away. When I was planning for the wedding, I still lived in LA. So it was a long distance wedding for me. However, Andrew always replied to my emails within a couple hours and kept the discussion going. Before the wedding, we met with Andrew again to go over the details, and he was fully prepared. He read the material I provided to him earlier and was familiar with the timetable and everything else. That really made a nervous bride feel much more comfortable and relaxed. I knew that I don’t need to worry about music. Andrew would take care of it.
On the wedding day, Andrew was awesome. He was on time coordinating with hotel staffs and other vendors. During the reception, his upbeat energy really made a difference. Everyone was having a great time dancing, exactly what I was wishing for. I would recommend Andrew from Verducci Entertainment to any couple looking for a DJ. Andrew is definitely my best choice among all my wedding vendors. Thanks, Andrew!”
-Sharon Lee, Toll House Hotel- Los Gatos, CA
“My wife and I were very impressed with Verducci Entertainment!! All our guests won’t stop raving about how great our DJ was. Andrew was fun, interactive and catered to our every need and desire for the overall feel for our wedding! The dance floor was packed all night! The sound level was great and he was completely professional! I didn’t have to think or worry about a thing. Thank you for making our wedding a night we will never forget! We highly recommend them!”
- Brandon Roberts, Mill Valley Community Center- Mill Valley, CA
“We hired Andrew from Verducci Entertainment to DJ our daughter’s wedding in Mill Valley on July 3…..they were the 5th DJ company they interviewed and they knew right away they were the one. We so appreciated knowing ahead of time that Andrew would not drink at the wedding and he put us at ease on a holiday weekend telling us he was going to get to the venue 2-3 hours early. We also appreciated him telling the bride and groom up front it was there day and not all about the DJ….he would not steal the show. We agree with everything said on Yelp…..they honored the bride and groom with all the songs they wanted and then gave them a CD of all the songs for their honeymoon drive!!!!!!! Wow….also they charged a fair fee for their services which we appreciated. We saved so much money on beer and wine because everyone in the room was dancing all night….the little kids loved his props that he brings to make it so festive….if you aren’t having Verducci Entertainment at your event your missing out!!!!! Thanks Verducci Entertainment, it was great….”
- Kathy Nolan, Mill Valley Community Center- Mill Valley, CA
“I wanted to let you know that everyone at Rancho has been RAVING about your company and Andrew.

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our event such a success!”
-Cora Bahl, Rancho Ricardo Swim Club- Lafayette, CA

-Ginger Monson, Sheraton- Palo Alto, CA
“Thank you so much for an incredible job at my birthday party Saturday night! You played everything my guests requested, you delivered our genre just as asked, and on top of it all, you were a huge pleasure to work with! Your client centric approach makes all the difference in the world. We asked, and you delivered! I will definitely use you again and recommend you to my friends.”
-Tamara Mack, Belvedere Tennis Club- Tiburon, CA
“As the Assistant Principal of the 8th graders attending Edna Brewer Middle School, I was tasked with the responsibility of securing a DJ for the 8th grade dinner dance. I was given a couple of leads, but after talking to Andrew Verducci from Verducci Entertainment, I knew he was my guy. He was prompt in response to my inquiry. He answered all of my questions without challenges. He assured me that I should not and will not have any problems regarding the music at the dinner dance. I provided him with a playlist of songs and he assured me that they were in his music collection. Andrew arrived at the venue way in advance of the start of the dance. His professionalism was evident in everything he did. He set up his djing station on stage. His colored, laser lighting system provided an extra aura of club/dance/party feeling to the venue. Once Andrew got on the turntables, the place was rocking. Its so hard to please teenagers nowadays, but Andrew accomplished such a task with great ease. The 8th graders of the 2010 Edna Brewer class had the time of their lives. Andrew turned that dance into a prom atmosphere. His energy and control of the music was positively impacted the atmosphere. Students danced and enjoyed themselves from beginning to end of the dance. Matter of fact, they enjoyed themselves so much that they wanted the dance to continue. Even the adults, parents and teacher chaperones, were grooving to Andrew’s beats. On the next school day, students talked, and talked, and talked about how much they had a blast. Not one of the over 200 students who attended the dance had a negative thing to say. Everyone acknowledged that the dance was the best that Edna Brewer ever had, and Andrew Verducci’s exemplary djing skills contributed to it. I wholeheartedly recommend Verducci Entertainment. If you have a djing need, Andrew is your man!—-A very happy Assistant Principal who aimed to please teenagers who are not always pleased!”
-Aubrey Lane, The Garden Center @ Lake Merritt- Oakland, CA
“We have nothing but praise. You made a last minute party the best and we thank you for making it happen with very little notice. You were extremely professional and we will absolutely use you again and recommend you to all our friends. Thank you very much! Cheers!”
-Lisa and Tim Dowling, Private Residence- San Francisco, CA
“The kids had a great time and the music selection was, of course, perfect! I heard more than once your personality was just perfect, they loved you! We are most happy that we have your company back again!
We will be in contact with dates to get you back on our stage! Thanks again!”
-Father Tony, St. Phillips Elementary School- San Francisco, CA
“Your company did a great job! Thanks again!”
-Sandy Schach, Presidio Golf Club- San Francisco, CA
“Verducci Entertainment never seizes to amaze me. We asked them to come back for our end of the year dance and they rocked it again! All of the kids left the dance saying that this was the best dance EVER! Andrew was our DJ and he just has a way to make every kid feel special. The kids loved the giveaway CD’s. We will be in contact with you for our events next year. Thanks again.”
-Yvonne McCarthty, Our Lady of Angels Elementary School- Burlingame, CA
“Verducci Entertainment just DJ’d our wedding on May 30 in San Francisco and they were fantastic.
From the very beginning, Andrew was extremely professional and prepared. He really took the time to get to know us, what kind of music we wanted, and what kind of atmosphere we desired. We really felt like we had a partner in the wedding.
Whenever we had a question for him, he responded via email almost immediately.
Then during the event itself, they knocked it out of the park. We had 190 people there and Andrew got everyone on the dance floor, from our friends to our parents to even our grandparents. He had a fantastic variety of music, was on the mic just enough to get people going and mix-it-up some, but also was never intrusive or cheesy. He could clearly be a great emcee as well if that’s what you’re looking for, but we wanted people just dancing . . . and danced they did! He really had a great feel for the room.
Finally, his pricing was very reasonable and straightforward.
We could not recommend him highly enough. If you hire Verducci Entertainment, you can cross music off of your to do list as they have it covered and will make sure you have a great time at your event.”
-Adam Miller, Presidio Golf Clubhouse- San Francisco, CA
“We can’t say enough about Verducci Entertainment. They really made the whole day with the incredible entertainment they brought into the main part of the fair with all the great bands they provided. They weren’t done…then they played a great mix of music into our car show area and Andrew did an incredible job MCing it. Everyone was into it and people are still coming up to me and talking about him and his company. I can honestly say that the car show and the whole faire attendance increased this year because of Verducci Entertainment. They should be the only entertainment you deal with. Thanks again!”
-Brad Noggle, Moraga Community Faire- Moraga, CA
“Your company was amazing! We haven’t seen those many parents dance in years! Your played the right blend of music and the party props really brought a special touch to the evening. No one wanted to leave the dancefloor, let alone, leave the event. We will definitely use your company for next year!”
-Maria Balestrieri, St. Brendan’s Elementary School- San Francisco, CA
“What can we say? Verducci Entertainment rocked our fundraising event again for the 4th year in a row. It was amazing to see Andrew interacting with the college students, and the elementary students. If it was the raffle giveaways, the twist contests, the limbo stick, the conga line, the danceoff; the energy was always at a high level. This is definitely the DJ company of the Bay Area! Thanks again!”
-Carnival for Kids Staff, St. Mary’s College- Moraga, CA
“We could not speak more highly about Andrew and Verducci Entertainment. Somehow, Andrew managed to exceed our lofty expectations, and helped make our sons Bar-Mitzvah an incredible success. Andrew is the complete package, he is an excellent DJ, a masterful MC, and an incredible motivator. Andrew had all 50 kids partaking in every aspect of the evenings events whether it was games, dancing, the candle lighting service and even dancing the Hora. As well, he masterfully mixed between teen and adult music keeping everyone entertained. Perhaps his best trait is his motivational skills, he is never over the top, however he is the guy everyone wants to party with. He moves through the crowd with his infectious party attitude and makes everyone feel great. Andrew also had the crowd going with all his fun props, party favors and prizes.
Andrew’s party expertise is just as excellent as his business management. Unsolicited, he communicated with us just the right amount of times, he was never a bother. He got back to us promptly and made us feel special, which was not the case with his competitors. He made our son feel at ease and was able to solicite ideas and input from him. In addition, Verducci Entertainments rates are very reasonable. I would have gladly paid double for their services and still thought it was a great deal. I should probably book my daughter’s Bat-Mitzvah right now. As an entertainer, business professional and all round incredible guy, Andrew and Verducci Entertainment is the elite DJ service in the Bay Area.”
-Roger and Lori Sherman, Danville Community Center- Danville, CA

It would have not been the same without your outstanding service. Since we contacted you about your company, you were professional, responsive, and flexible. I will definitely pass the word of your excellent services to anyone in need of a DJ. Thanks again.”

-Yvonne McCarthy, Our Lady of Angels Elementary School- Burlingame, CA
“Hi Andrew! Thank you so much for everything you did at our event! Everyone at the party had a great time and a big part was you! You did a perfect job with playing the music that crowd loves! I also really appreciate how accomodating you were to hook up the home made video to your speakers so everyone could hear it. The fact that you were at the location early to check out your setup and make sure you that everything was ready took a lot off my mind – it was one less thing for me to worry about that you had all that fully prepared. Bringing the party hats, glasses etc added too – everybody had fun with those!! Also, thank you so much for allowing me to add on an additional hour at the last moment, the crowd was having so much fun (including me!) that I didn’t want the evening to end. I will definitely refer you to my friends and I will be calling you for my next event! Thank you for everything!!!!”

“First off I want to thank you for the service you and your company provided us for the dance. We appreciate everything you did for us. The music was great. We think one of the strong points of the night was your ability to accommodate each student with their song request. Overall the performance was great, and we feel that you were the best man for the job.”

“Hi Andrew. Thanks again so much for all your help and support at our Wedding 10/24/09 in Monterey. I especially appreciate your prompt follow up every time that we sent you an email. We were very pleased with your service and professionalism. I know that Cathy Schneider, who was Lori’s Matron of Honor, said that she may contact you in 2010 about possibly doing the music for a birthday party she is planning for her husband Steve. So who knows, we may see you again. Until then, ciao!”

“Hey Andrew. Thanks again for being a part of Dustin’s special day! I was so impressed with your set-up and I received so many compliments on the music you played…especially during dinner. Everyone kept saying they felt like they were in Vegas at a lounge…exactly what I was going for! I think that it was SO worth having you there to DJ. I know my friends really liked having the option to Karaoke! I will definitely tell everyone in need of a DJ to reach out to Verducci Entertainment! Also, I really like the mix CD you put together. It was a nice touch! I especially liked the Verducci House remix! Thanks again Andrew!”

Andrew was organized, followed up and made sure he was prepared for our event. It made for such a smooth experience for our guests. Then as if that wasn’t enough he surprised our guests with a box of hats and fun stuff for entertainment, that was awesome!!! The music was great! We would hire him again anytime. I will also post your company on our website for friends and family to contact you. Thank you!”

“Andrew, thanks for a great event Thursday night. Our Seventh and Eighth Grade graduates had a great time. They were still talking about it the next day at the graduation breakfast, as well as part of their graduation speech. The music was perfectly picked for the age group, the sound was just as loud as they like it and your interaction was just the way they like it. I am sure we will have you back for one of our ‘adult’ events in the not-to-distant future. Thanks again!”

“Hey Verducci Entertainment! Awesome DJ job!! Our party was a big success thanks to your music selection. I had a number of folks sa to me, this “DJ is great!” You could not have been more diligent and responsive in making sure everything was teed up the way we wanted…before the first song even played! Susan and I are looking forward to having you drive the music at our next party. And if you ever need a reference…don’t hesitate to have any potential client call me. Many thanks!!! All the best!”

“Andrew, I have never been to a wedding where everyone got up on the dance floor and stayed there all night long! All our guests were happy and told us they had never had this much fun in years. I was pleased with you because you kept us on time with the first dance, boquet toss, down to the last dance. You have a great presentation and the music was the perfect mixture for the various age groups I had at the wedding. I am already recommending you to others. You truely helped make our wedding day a success.”

“Thank you so much for providing your services and your generous donation to SI. Everyone had a blast. I cannot think of the last time I witnessed a conga line and limbo. I’m sure it will get back to the rest of non attendees that a good time was missed. My knees are killing me. Lots of pent up dancing with the stars meets the soccer moms.”
