Jim was a terrific emcee, DJ, and planner for our wedding. With Jim you get both dedication. He contacted everyone giving a toast to offer advice, he did a wedding party roast and love story that I had never seen before and were very well received. And his playlist kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night. He also offered a photo booth and uplighting at a price that we could manage, something we didn’t expect given our tight budget. I would definitely recommend Jim Collins to anyone looking for a DJ for any occasion, but certainly for weddings!

Jim Collins was an amazing Master of Ceremonies from start to finish. My husband and I had a Connecticut wedding that we planned from California. I had one weekend in Connecticut to choose all of my vendors and meet with them. Jim was so professional, organized, and passionate during our meeting that I felt very comfortable choosing him as our MC. He continued to reassure me that he was a great choice through the whole process through his organization, advanced prep-work, and knowledge of how to make a wedding run smoothly. Then the wedding day came and he really blew me away. Our wedding venue was tricky to say the least. Our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing took place in four separate locations. Jim set up perfectly so the music could be heard in every location. His table looked discreet, neat, nice, and fit right in. Most importantly my guests were dancing the entire time and multiple people came up to me throughout the night and after the wedding to tell me how great the music was. I highly recommend Jim Collins for your next event! Thank you Jim for making our planning process and wedding so amazing!

Absolutely Fantastic Work! Jim is extremely personable and likes to personalize your experience and make it as much fun as possible. He was quick to respond to our inquiries and had a lot of ideas to make our wedding memorable. Meetings beforehand are very professional and add to the value of the service he provides. The website he uses for choosing music is very easy to use and helps a lot when selecting music. He provided many suggestions on this service, including popular songs for the cake cutting, first dances, and garter toss, which gave us many ideas for our own wedding. We did not go into the wedding with many ideas for fun little activities to get the people involved, but Jim had a lot of great ideas that made our night very special. Jim makes sure to follow your timeline to keep your night running smoothly. It is the attention to detail he provides, such as making sure he knows how to pronounce everyone’s name correctly, that truly sets him apart as a great master of ceremonies. Our entire night went off without a hitch and he is a main reason why that is so. We HIGHLY recommend Jim to anyone interested in a DJ!

I could not have asked for a better DJ for my recent wedding reception. Jim was very accommodating and had a website set up for his clients to create a timeline to help the reception run smoothly. The website also allows the bride and groom to request songs that you definitely want played throughout the night as well as songs or specific genres you do not want played. The online system also offers lists of popular selections for the first dance, garter toss, bouquet toss, father/daughter dances, etc. which makes the process of choosing songs so much easier! Jim checked in with us several times before the wedding and answered any questions we had very quickly. He makes an effort to really get to know the bride an groom beforehand which really allows for the reception to be more personalized. He had guests dancing all night long and I was sad for the night to end because I was having such a blast! I will absolutely recommend Collins Entertainment to any friends and family with upcoming weddings!! Thank you so much for making our reception perfect by helping everything run smoothly and keeping all of our guests entertained throughout the night!

Jim Collins was an amazing DJ for our wedding! We had the night of our lives!! He was extremely professional and made it easy to plan our wedding from out of state by meeting with my husband and I several times over Skype to discuss our event. He was open to our song selections and our itinerary and also had a lot of great experience and ideas to add to our reception. He helped make our wedding a night we will never forget! The dance floor was packed the entire night! He had a great selection of music, an amazing website with song choices and great prices for wedding packages. Everyone at our wedding, including the event staff and our bartenders said our wedding was a blast!! You have to have him for your wedding!!!
