LOVED having Burt from FingerSnappin’ Entertainment as our DJ

We absolutely LOVED having Burt from FingerSnappin’ Entertainment as our DJ. He was super nice, very professional, flexible about our reception hours, and our dance floor was packed the entire evening. We just about had to kick people out at the end of the night! Burt was never cheesy or annoying like so many DJs we’ve seen.

He had just the right amount of interaction with our wedding guests. The only reason we gave a 4.5 for quality of service instead of 5 was that we’d talked about doing a few things in our last meeting that for whatever reason didn’t happen (nothing that important, but in hindsight we should’ve been more clear about the final contract). Overall, we were thrilled with Burt’s work and would absolutely recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a great DJ!

Good Master of Ceremonies for our Reception

Burt is conscientious and personable. He was happy to take our wanted list of music and use it. When there was a song we didn’t have available in our own collection, he was determined to fine it and down load it so we could have a full catalog for our special day. He was on time and was a good “master of ceremonies” for our reception. We thought what he charged was entirely reasonable.

Spear Wedding on February 18th, 2012 at American Theater on King Street

It was a first  for FingerSnappin’ Entertainment  to DJ at the American Theater on King St in downtown Charleston, SC.  What a beautiful place.  Amy and Josh took everybody back to the 1930′s and 40′s with the style of music  and  decorations.  Nathan Bell with Richard Bell Photography was the photographer  (see attached images).   It was a small  wedding, but it was  beautiful and great party.   Amy and Josh even taught me a little bit about the swing sytle of music.  The ceremony was held in a movie theater with everybody siting in the movie seats and looking down on the alter.  Their preacher was even in the 1930′s attire (with cane, top hat etc).   Amy and Josh went with the uplighting and chose blue and green colors.  It really went well  with the decor.  Thank you Josh and Amy for allowing us to be a big part of your day.

Outstanding Job at Our Wedding

Amanda and I would like to tell you that you did an outstanding job at our wedding. Our first DJ disappeared on us and you came in less than three weeks before our wedding and had all of our music prepared for us earlier than expected. The fact that you showed up at the wedding much earlier, shows that you want to put on a great show for your clients. We where surprised at the amount of songs you had available on the spot when people where making requests. Amanda made a comment that every name that she gave you, you happened to play her favorite from each artist, and she had never told you the songs, just names. Everything was perfect and we were beyond pleased with everything you did for us. We hope to see you again at another wedding.

Stress-Free DJ Services for Our Wedding

We wanted to thank you for the awesome job you did playing for our wedding. With everything we had going on, having you as a DJ was one of the few things that was stress-free. Everything from the music you played, getting people out on the dance floor, and letting people know about the different events (i.e. cake cutting, first dance, bouquet toss) was absolutely perfect. It all went off without a hitch and we could not have planned for it to go any better. We would definitely recommend you to our friends.

BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival – PhotoBooth

Hello Friends!

I wanted to tell you about our awesome time we had at the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival in Charleston, SC.  FingerSnappin’ Entertainment (FSE) set up a photo booth and let me tell you, the crowd went crazy over it.  We were located inside the Bus Shed at Charleston Vistors Center!  Once the gates opened at 9:00pm, we didn’t stop all night long.  Quiana Park & Friends Band were the band, never heard them before, but they sure did rock!  They are great!  Also a special thank you goes out to Kristin Newman with Kristin Newman Designs.  They were gracious enough to think about us and gave us the opportunity to show everyone our photo booth.

Untill Next Time!
