We recently hired Excellent! Entertainment for our daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday party and I cannot say enough about Chris Gruler. He is truly a consummate professional. From the moment we inquired about his service, Chris took the time to schedule a phone consultation with us (including the birthday girl) to find out what kind of event we were envisioning. He then put together a thorough proposal of what our conversation entailed. I thought this was amazing for him to put so much detail together for us considering he did not know if he had the job. Wow are we ever glad that we hired him.

Chris made it a point to keep in touch with us weeks and days leading up to the event to go over timelines, playlist and more.

The day of the event, Chris and his staff arrived promptly to set up. Chris was very engaging with the crowd, he made everyone laugh, and he put them at ease so they would get up and dance. He even got on the dance floor to show off some of his moves (the kids loved it).

We had some special details, like showing a slide show with a special requested song and a father-daughter dance and Chris transitioned to each flawlessly.

All of our guests had a wonderful time and could not praise him enough. It was so lovely to see it all come together so beautifully on her day.

Thank you Chris and your team so much for all your hard work in making our daughter’s sweet sixteen birthday a memorable event. It was everything she envisioned it to be and more. This would not have been possible without you.

Chris was patient and did an amazing job at our friends Golden 50th wedding anniversary. Professional and dependable! He saved this event as our previous dj cancelled last minute.

Chris with Excellent Entertainment was awesome to work with as our wedding DJ. He was knowledgable, organized, and quickly responded to any questions we had. On the day of our wedding, he provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Everything was perfect! At the reception he was engaging and played a great mix of our playlist along with requests. I would highly recommend him! More...

We used Chris for my daughters Sweet 16 Party. It was a small crowd but Chris did a great job getting peopl up and dancing and engaged and having fun. Nice variety of music. Chris was early to set up ready to go for party time. Chris responded to correspondence prior to the party within 24 hour and provided all that was asked of him. I highly recommed Chris. Photo Booth package was awesome! More...

Chris was my event coordinator and dj for our wedding this weekend. I have spoken with him for over 6 months before the wedding. Chris accommodated everything I asked for and made everything so easy. The wedding was ran so smoothly that all we had to do was show up and wait for him to tell us what’s next. Our guests were extremely happy with the photo booth and music being played. We strongly recommend Chris! Thank you for everything! More...

I have attended three fantastic events where Chris provided the entertainment: a wedding, a singles party and a birthday bash. Each one was so much fun because Chris gets everyone out dancing, always choosing the best music for the age group and the occasion, and building a nice rapport with the guests. The photo booth run by Jennifer is also always a big hit. I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed after choosing Chris to provide the music and entertainment for their celebration! More...

Chris Gruler is an "Excellent!" DJ!! He does an amazing job keeping the dance floor packed with the perfect song choices. He is easy to work with and very professional. Chris has a great energy and kept everyone (from ages 3 to 93) impressed with his talent. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone for any event! More...

Chris did my wedding in pittsburgh. Even thou i was out of state it was a simple process he located the equipment he needed to rent and set up the whole nine. The music was great he was teaching the line dances got people out dancing. He also did my mother's 70th bday party again people had a blast. There is something infectious about his style and personality that I believe other djs miss or dont have and it directly affects your party trust me if i had to pay double or triple its worth it. Thank you Chris for a great time at our events see u soon at our next one.

We were originally discouraged when after booking with Chris and Excellent DJ, we found out Chris would not be doing our wedding. We had been to another wedding that Chris had disc jockeyed and were so impressed with him. Another DJ, Dave, ended up doing our wedding. We could not be more pleased. He worked with us to determine the best cut of our first dance and cut the mother/son dance for us. We also decided to have a special dance that incorporated the first dance songs from members of our family and he came up with the perfect compilation for us; an acoustic song effortlessly flowed into 80's power ballad leading into R&B ending with salsa. It was so perfect that it made me cry the first time I heard it!!! Dave was spot on picking the right songs to get the guests on the dance floor, yet played all the songs we requested. He was courteous (making sure it was alright with me before playing a song that was similar to one on our not preferred list), enthusiastic, and professional. He worked well with both our caterer and our photographer to make sure the evening flowed perfectly. More...

Thumbs up to Chris and his team for doing a really nice job for our wedding. Prices were great value for everything we got (DJ and enclosed photo booth). My friend who was recently married paid more and her DJ was ok but Chris was exceptional. So glad I found him. Stop wasting time. You have found your DJ! More...

Chris was really easy to work with despite my own lack of organization. Without him we would have been lost. He did our lights, or ceremony, our reception and the photo booth. All were executed with perfection. He was very interactive with our guests which made the wedding great for everyone. His mix of music included my requests and he blended in some surprises my hubby and I enjoyed. I would recommend Chris to anyone who wants a really fun wedding with elegance. More...

I recently hired Excellent Entertainment for my dads 70th birthday party. Chris was our Dj and Mc. We also got a photo booth. They were amazing! We had a wide age range of kids as young as three and adults up to late 80's. They were great with the kids getting them to dance. And they played some beautiful old hits that got everyone on the floor. Some of the seniors had a tough time with mobility and The Photo Booth attendant was so patient and kind with them. It meant a great deal to me. Everyone had such a great time from the kids to the young adults, parents and grandparents. They are the best! Thank you so much Chris and Excellent Entertainment!!

I had such an awesome experience with Excellent Entertainment. Last week, I was at a close friends wedding. her family are not typically the type to dance. The DJ did such an amazing job of getting everybody up and out of their seats dancing. The music selection was phenomenal and the sound was perfect. Also the lighting in the room that they chose looked amazing. It went perfectly with the Decor and the cake. They were so organized and on top of it. I felt instantly relieved, like we got a wedding planner for free. They looked impeccable and were super professional and I could tell they really cared that everyone had a great time. She also got a Photo Booth with them which was so much fun! The assistant running the Photo Booth was so sweet and fun. She made picking silly hats, glasses and feather boa's so much fun like we were out shopping. I'm absolutely using this company for when I get married. Can't wait! And I can't stop talking about them! They took what would've been an ordinary event with people sitting around and kind of chatting and turned it into this awesome bonding moment where we're all dancing around the bride and groom and having a blast!

Few hours ago, i just finished an event with Excellent Entertainment Djs and no matter how tired I am, I needed to write this right now because picking Chris and Excellent Entertainment DJs was the best decision that my client and I as a 15 Party Planner made during our entire party planning process. We used Excellent Entertainment DJs both for entertainment, photo booth, videography and for lighting -- both of which they absolutely knocked out of the park. When we signed up with Chris, we didn’t truly understand how much of an impact our decision would make on the outcome of the girl's big day. Chris and his team spent the time to have “creative email sessions” to get to know exactly the activities in advance including interests, our music preferences, and our overall vision for this big night. They then designed a tailored end-to-end flow for the evening and worked with us on planning all each of the big moments. Looking back on our experience with Excellent Entertainment DJs, we got FAR more than a DJ, we a conductor for our evening who kept the excitement and energy of our 15 Party night going until the last song. As for the night itself, the dance floor was so packed throughout the evening that people were dancing on the carpet (and it was not a small dance floor). The 15 girl entrance was electric. The lighting was perfect. It was truly the best night as a planner that I have ever seen and made possible by the talent and hard work of Chris and his team. You may be able to find less expensive wedding DJs, but going with Excellent Entertainment DJs was the best money that my client could have ever spent. Hats off to the Chris and his team for a night and experience that my client, her daughter and guests will never forget. More...

We had the owner, Chris at our wedding as the emcee all night. He introduced himself to me as I was getting ready to walk down the aisle (we had all been hiding in the bridal suite beforehand) and he even wore one of the colors of the wedding, which just looked great. Communication before the wedding was extremely quick and he was very accommodating with the amount of times we changed our minds about music/lights/etc. During the wedding he stayed in communication with us about everything, gave us advice about the dinner/decisions about timed things, offered to get us drinks, etc. He was awesome in the way he handled changing things around, he added in a mother son dance at the last minute, and he gave us advice about the welcome that we were concerned about. He had some juggling to do with the two different types of people at the wedding, and he did a great job, although he did lean more towards the fun line dancing bridal side, and could have played a few extra slower spanish songs for the grooms side. But we're sure he went with what he felt would keep the energy going. He did our final dance a whole 40min early when we asked him to, and helped get everyone where they needed to be afterwards. Overall the entire experience was awesome, and we got a followup email with our photobooth photos before we even got back from our honeymoon. It was great having those photos so quickly to share with everyone. More...

Excellent! Entertainment was hired for our April 8 wedding. Chris was so great to work with. From the beginning, we were impressed with his professionalism and his patience with us. He was very understanding and worked within our budget. The music that he played at our wedding was exactly what we asked for and he was there to help with anything else that was needed. He was energetic, fun, organized, and coordinated well with our other vendors. Thank you Chris with Excellent! Entertainment for helping make our wedding amazing! More...

We went with the photo booth and DJ package and could not have been happier with our choice! Chris is very friendly, organised and professional. He makes you feel comfortable every step of the way and will not disappoint on your big day! We really appreciated all of his help and advice on the lead up to our wedding and don't know what we would've done without him on the day. He worked so hard to make sure things were running as smooth as possible while also providing the best entertainment for our guests. We would not hesitate to recommend him for all types of events and would love to work with him again in the future! Thank you again for your help in making our day so special :) More...

Chris was the DJ/MC at our Jewish/Irish wedding. He played all the music we wanted and had the perfect Hora! The ceremony got rained out so everything got pushed to the reception earlier than expected. Chris was so flexible he just made it happen. Everyone really enjoyed the photobooth too. Even my dad was so impressed. So much fun! Thank you, Chris! More...

Chris is truly an excellent DJ. He did an excellent job on the uplighting and the music. He did such a great job I could barely get off of the dance floor. Everyone that attended danced the night away. His professionalism and personality really stand out. I can not believe how lucky we were to have him as our DJ. The price was very reasonable, especially for the quality of his work. Do not look any further for a DJ, he is above and beyond "excellent". Cant thank you enough Chris!!! More...

Chris, our DJ was the bomb!! From the beginning of me contacting him, my experience was at all times a very positive one!! We had local and out of state guess, from the age of 10-68 and everyone was encourage to participate on the evening events including the photo booth, dancing, requesting songs to Chris the DJ encouraging our guests to dance. Our entrance to the reception was memorable as well as the ENTIRE EVENING!! YOU MUST HIRE THIS COMPANY!! Wifey and I plus all of our guests wouldn't have it any other way!! ☺️☺️☺️ More...

Chris was beyond incredible!

He was brought into our wedding plans 2 weeks before the big day and he didn't miss a beat! He put in the time (by phone and email) to make sure that we were taken care of on every last detail. He had everything organized and accommodated to every request we had - and they weren't all easy.

Thank you so much Chris for helping to make our wedding day the single best day of our lives!

Chris is an amazing job at our wedding. There were always people out on the dance floor having a good time. He even went out of his way to teach people dances. Outside of the music he was overly helpful in making sure that everything ran smoothly with time cues and whatnot. Also we had him do lighting for the wedding and it was just perfect, we were looking for more of a quaint mood lighting feel versus the harshness of overhead lights and he nailed it!!! Would definitely recommend his services to anyone looking for the whole DJ/MC package!!! More...

I have known and worked with Chris for years, so when my then boyfriend proposed and we started planning the wedding, we knew Chris was the man to use as our DJ. We already knew him, and he knew us, so we were really able to fine tune out wants and needs with ease. He helped guide us through how the night went. It was flawless and everyone talked about how much fun they had at our wedding and how much they loved our DJ. We had so much fun and my husband even threw my Garter to him! We loved everything about the night, especially all that Chris did for us! More...

For years now, I have always said that the two most important things for me at my wedding is for there to be good food and good dancing. I honestly was nervous about finding the best DJ and had a hard time finding one that was good for me and my husband. When my friends referred Chris to us and said "he kept everyone on the dance floor the whole time," I knew he was the guy!

From the meetings and emails held before the wedding, Chris was always so friendly, quick, flexible, and professional.

The ceremony music was perfect. I have heard so many stories where the DJ played the wrong song at the wrong time. Walking down the aisle to one of my favorite songs and seeing my soon to be husband at the endow the aisle was by far my favorite memory from that day.

Now... the dancing... I have had more comments about how the dancing was the best dancing they've ever experienced at a wedding than anything else. As you can tell from the heavy crowds on the dance floor, people absolutely loved the song choices. One person said that the flow from song to song was perfect - it just kept getting better and better. I have so many wonderful memories on that dance floor. I didn't even leave once the Cupid Shuffle started!

Chris is an "excellent" choice! You will surely not be disappointed!
