High School ReunionReviewed on April 23, 2017From Denville, NJ

John did a superb job, very flexible in meeting our needs and was wonderful in taking requests! He was friendly, polite and very professional. I would not hesitate to use him again and would recommend him to anyone who wanted a talented dj.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 31, 2017From New York City, NY

Kelly was great! She handled several unusual requests for intros and music, and communication was easy. She maintained a solid and fun dance floor with a diverse crowd -- mostly the older crowd earlier on and the younger crowd later on. She adjusted quickly when asked, and she had a great personality.

Club EventReviewed on August 8, 2016From New Milford, CT

John is terrific! He's not only very talented, but also very professional, courteous, responds promptly to questions, and was accommodating to anything we needed. We hired John to perform for our club's 85th anniversary Gala (200+ people) and were delighted with his live singing performance for the cocktail hour and as DJ for the dinner dance. John has a knack for reading his audience and selecting music that appeals to a wide age range. He certainly had our group up on the dance floor the whole night having a ball. We would definitely have him back for future events.

John did a wonderful job of making this wedding very stress-free in terms of music, he set up a very great outline for us to fill out before the event to make sure we had everything covered.

WeddingReviewed on May 22, 2016From Fairfield, CT

John did an awesome job at my wedding!!! I knew as soon as I saw his available song list on gig masters that he would be the perfect dj. One of my friends was about to request a song from John... and sure enough he starts playing that exact song. He has such an immense knowledge of music and it shows in his dj skills. I highly recommend John to anyone who needs a dj for any kind of event and any type of music. He made my wedding day absolutely perfect, I didn't stop dancing for a single second. Thank you John!!!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on February 1, 2016From Jersey City, NJ

John and his team were extremely professional and very quick on their feet. We threw a few curve balls at them throughout the night but they were ready to respond however we needed them to. We also got the photo booth package and everyone had a great time using the props and sneaking behind the curtain for a photo session. We would definitely use these guys again!

John Alden was fantastic. He worked with us to make our wedding entertainment exactly as we described, classy, jazzy, and fun. We received so many compliments from our guests and from the venue management. Thank you for making such a magical event.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 31, 2015From Bronxville, NY

Once again a perfect experience, sensitive to the mood of the party and adjusting the music as the evening progressed, always playing the appropriate genre for the stage of the event. I'd recommend Alden without hesitation.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on December 28, 2015From New York City, NY

We had a wonderful time with John providing karaoke at our corporate holiday party. He was very accommodating with our technical equipment and very helpful throughout preparation for the event. We look forward to working with him in the future.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 8, 2014From Haverstraw, NY

John Alden did an amazing job at my party! He had young and old dancing the night away. He independently, professionally sets himself and all his equipment up quickly and without a whisper. As a party host of fifty, that was extremely helpful to me that he needs not a drop of direction! I will certainly be using him again and recommending him to everyone hosting a party. Prior to my party, I had read other reviews of Alden Entertainment and one had wished they had him sing more than one song. So here is my advice...go for the cocktail hour singing , you will not regret it. John in a tux singing , songs of your choice, made my party all the more memorable:)

John is just the best... Accommodating and exhibits control over the event, which allow the host to relax and know that everything will run smoothly.

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 30, 2014From Eastchester, NY

My experience with John was very good. He was very responsive prior to our event. He took our requested song list and came prepared. He adapted during our party taking requests. I would recommend Alden highly.

High School ReunionReviewed on October 20, 2014From Pearl River, NY

John was so patient with my group, who at times, took over the microphone. At the end of the event, he graciously plugged it in again, so that we could talk to the crowd. I would highly recommend him to anyone. This was a 40th reunion, so the music was mostly 70s, with some current music mixed in. He provided just the atmosphere I wanted, and it was so appreciated! Thank you John.

Holiday PartyReviewed on December 11, 2013From New York City, NY

John and team are just great. They worked with us for a large event for two years in a row, and everything was seamless. He allowed us to pick our playlists, made suggestions year-over-year to make things better, and is incredibly professional throughout. Best DJ I've ever worked with in planning events.

CelebrationReviewed on September 1, 2013From Brewster, NY

Alden was exactly what we were looking for for our wedding party. We had a huge list of different songs and we wanted them all to be played at the right time. We emailed the list of 166 songs to John a week before the party and he showed up, setup, and people had a great time. Everyone complimented that the music was excellent and that it wasn't so loud you can't hear yourself think. As the event was at my house I was planning on having an after party and wanted to setup my stereo system before John left. John helped me carry and assemble all the components before he left and the music never skipped a beat. Highly recommended!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on April 21, 2013From New York City, NY

It was a pleasure doing business with John. He answered my initial request within couple of hours and the questions I had were answered immediately. The service itself - the actual DJing was very good and the dancefloor at our event was full all night long which was our goal. Recommend highly.
