Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 19, 2012From Brooklyn, NY

We got so many compliments about the great mix of music. John played all our requests, and was well spoken and professional during the announcements. Also, we really appreciated how quickly he got back to us about questions and changes prior to the event. 5 stars all around!

Working with John was a pleasure throughout the entire process-- from booking, till his willingness to stay late when our wedding reception went over time. He was always professional, and clearly knew what he was doing every step of the way. And I highly recommend having him sing at your event as well- he has a great voice – I only wish I had asked him to sing in at our cocktail hour!

John was extremely professional and kept our wedding rocking on into the afterparty. At our request, he played a great mix of top 40 music and really exceeded all of my expectations. Thanks, John!

John was just wonderful. He helped us in so many ways from the setup of the site to renting us his projector and screen. He accommodated us when we had to reschedule the event due to Hurricane Sandy. He is really a true professional and I would recommend his services to anyone that wants great service and terrific talent! Valerie Hufnagel Board President

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 17, 2010From Westbury, NY

John couldn't have been easier to work with. He was able to confirm with us and plan all the details between phone and e-mail. My (now) husband and I were very indecisive on some of the song selections we wanted, and John was able to accommodate us very last minute. Even though our "must play" selections were a little off the grid (like the love song from Enchanted), John was able to get them for us with no problem. He was able to read the crowd and played music that went with every mood. We couldn't have been happier!!!

Community EventReviewed on May 22, 2012From Westport, CT

Our event was unusual and complex. Alden did a wonderful job of understanding our vision, answering questions beforehand, coming to planning meetings and performing that night. I would use Alden again and recommend to friends. Thank you!

John Alden is professional, accomodating, punctual, honest, and presents himself well. Although our wedding only required a single DJ and a prescribed playlist, he timed it beautifully and was willing to stay a little later at no charge. I would recommend him without reservation.

John was great! He had an odd request from a guest, was sure to check with me prior to accommodating the request. EXACTLY what was needed. I will definitely be using him in the future!

Kelly and John are consummate professionals. Everyone loved them. We have had them back every year for the last four years and plan to have them back again next year. We would highly recommend them.

John was very easy to work with and accomodated all of our odd requests. He responded very well to the crowd and vice-versa. I would definately recommend him for a corporate event.

Kelly was terrific! Would absolutely ask her to come and DJ for us again. She was friendly and accommodating and and a terrific sport when our outdoor BBQ turned into a soggy cold mess under a tent. Thank you, Kelly!

Private PartyReviewed on August 23, 2008From West Orange, NJ

John Alden is the complete professional. The combination of singing and dj-ing he provides is lovely and added something special to our event. Our guests are still complimenting us on the music. Working with John was easy. He was accomodating and worked with us to create an event that was exactly what we were looking for. He played the set-list we provided and incorporated appropriate and complementary music of his own choosing. I would hire John again for an event without question.

Excellent!! Totally professional and the sound quality was top notch. John and Kelly did a wonderful job and helped make our wedding day that much more special. We would absolutely hire them for any upcoming event that we may have in the future. If you are getting married, do not be afraid to hire these two, you will NOT be disappointed one bit!

I found the performer to be very competent and serious about his job. He knows the business and is very conscientious and a accommodating to the customer. He knows how to get crowd up to dance.

Great DJ, great price, hassle-free. Incredibly professional throughout the process. Others may be a tad cheaper, but you should go with these guys hands down. You won't be disappointed.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 26, 2012From Brooklyn, NY

I had spoken with a few different DJ's and decided on Alden Entertainment for my adult birthday party. The party was heavy on 70's disco. He understood it and people were dancing all night. The BIG plus is John's terrific voice. More than a few of my guests commented on his singing.The venue was beautiful,the food was fabulous and the addition of Alden entertainment made the party perfect. I could not have asked for anything more. If you need music ? You need John. BOB B NYC

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on June 10, 2012From New York City, NY

Hired John Alden for my disco/ dance birthday party and he was terrific!! I was very nervous hiring someone unknown. But, after speaking with John via phone I got a good sense. Plus he had lots of positive reviews. John was very professional and easy to work with. I provided 70's disco tunes and also requested that he play other upbeat party tunes. He totally delivered, was good at reading the crowd and kept the party moving! The easiest part of my party planning was hiring Alden Entertainment. I would totally recommend John and Alden Entertainment.

Sweet 16 PartyReviewed on February 24, 2012From New York City, NY

John is a Pro, Five Stars all around. We gave him a Playlist to mix that needed to be followed to the letter in order to stick to our Party time frame and John pulled it off flawlessly. All the guests had a really great time. We look forward to working with Alden Entertainment again.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on April 6, 2011From New York City, NY

John did an amazing job at our wedding! He was extremely accommodating to my specific requests on song choices and artists. And it read the crowd and timing of the day perfectly. I would recommend him for any event big or small.
