  • Ugh, my husband and I don't have enough words to explain how great Beat Train Productions were. We used them both for the Photobooth and DJ services. The DJ - we had the pleasure of working with Joe Lopez and he was just all around so amazing to work with. We had to customize some of our songs and he had no problems helping us with it all. We gave him a list of some genres we liked and he chose such great songs! EVERYONE was dancing and people kept on raving on how amazing our DJ was that even one person approached him about possibly doing their wedding The Photobooth - honestly, every wedding we have gone to, we never thought twice about the quality of the photos until we saw how they came out for ours and let me tell you... they are FLAWLESS. They came out so so good and we couldn't be happier with them. It's seriously the best quality photo's we've seen yet. All in all, we loved Beat Train Productions and their team. Everyone was so nice and accommodating and it just made... Read more

  • In 2017 we attended 7 weddings. We realized that there were a lot of bad DJ's out there, HOWEVER one of the weddings was DJ'ed by Nick from Beat Train - we were SO impressed that I went up at the end of the night to ask for his info (this was before we even got engaged). As soon as we were engaged at the end of the year, I reached out to Beat Train and requested Nick before he got booked. The staff at Beat Train responded immediately and within a few weeks, Nick set up a call with us to get to know us, our style, what we were looking for, etc. Closer to our wedding date, he met with us in person to discuss the timeline, style etc. Beat Train also had an online portal where we could let them know about our first dance, formalities, etc. We also populated an Apple playlist and put the link for them to reference the songs we wanted. We also didn't want a DJ who was mean to guests (we've experienced that), did line dances (which we think is tacky), talked too much (we've experienced that t... Read more

  • I would recommend Beat Train and specifically, our DJ - Greg Lanzillotta - to ANYONE. Beat Train was professional and responsive, and super easy to book with. Greg absolutely slayed - we got married two weeks ago and I am still having friends and family reach out to tell me how amazing the music was! Greg accommodated every one of our requests, and somehow played EXACTLY what we wanted to hear at every single moment. He is an absolute professional, and extremely talented. If you are considering booking with him, do so without hesitation! He is the best!

  • I loved working with DJ Jake at Beat Train! Not only did he help us come up with playlists that felt authentic to us as a couple, but he also played downright danceable hits that kept people on their feet all night. Jake was very kind to work on multiple iterations of our playlists for cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing and was super quick to respond during the planning process. We are very happy with our choice to have Jake DJ at our wedding and could not recommend him enough!

  • We worked with DJ Tim Ahler for our wedding and he did such an outstanding job!!!! He was extremely professional, prompt, organized, and knew exactly when to play the best songs to keep the crowd on the dance floor. He was extremely receptive to our song ideas and helpful in mashing up a track we needed for one of our parent dances. All of our guests were raving about him and the music! We looked into several different DJ companies and Beat Train was the only company that actually called us at the time they said they were going to. They were very prompt and helpful in their responses to our questions. We would highly recommend booking them!

  • We chose Beat Train on the basis of their reputation for no-nonsense DJing -- no dumb party games, just great music. We hired Shane Page for six hours, and could not be happier with our choice. He reached out to us a few months before our wedding to chat over Skype, and the conversation definitely put us at ease about being on the same page in terms of our needs & musical tastes. Shane is charming and enjoyable to be around -- which is an important quality in someone who is going to be a consistent presence throughout your wedding day! He executed every part of the evening according to our wishes and earned us compliments from some of the biggest music snobs among our guests. Last but not least, he delivered an absolutely adorable moment (captured on insta by out wedding coordinator) by patiently explaining his DJing software to our 10-year-old nephew who loves music! Shane is a fantastic DJ and all-around great guy.

  • Beat Train Productions was professional and responsive throughout the entire process. They identified a variety of DJs for us, including DJ Shane. Shane took the time to learn about us as a couple and the type of atmosphere we wanted to create. At the wedding, he managed all of the announcements perfectly and seamlessly blended our musical style which included 1940/50s Jazz and Big Band, Afrobeat, traditional Greek dance songs and modern hip hop and R&B. He played a variety of songs from the list we provided, and used his expertise to identify others that kept the ENTIRE crowd dancing all night…all with a big smile on his face. We continue to get compliments about Shane 6 months later. Highly recommend!

  • So happy with our experience with Beat Train Productions. We worked with Nick, and he was amazing! From our initial planning phone call he totally understood what we were looking for. We wanted the music to be amazing, nothing "cheesy", and no cringe worthy yelling over the music. Prior to our day we met with Nick to go over all the details and uplighting color. The day of our wedding we were blown away by the music selections all being completely perfect. I am so particular when it comes to music, and could not be more pleased with the music played at our reception. We will be recommending Beat Train to all our friends!

  • We knew Beat Train Productions from an incredible night of dancing at my brother’s wedding a few years back, so we knew we wanted to use them. Working with Jeff Gilbride went so smoothly: it felt relaxed but also like he had everything taken care of. He asked great questions along the way, worked through his plan with us to smooth out any questions ahead of time, and everything ran according to plan on the big day, so the preparation-part was an A+. Then let’s talk about the DJing! The energy on the dance floor was incredible. Jeff included so many killer songs, perfectly mixed so the momentum stayed the whole time, and he made good on hitting a TON of our requested artists/songs even though they spanned different eras/genres- it was all just natural and dancey and awesome. I love dancing and was really hoping that it would go well, and I didn’t leave the dancefloor the whole night because I was having so much fun- euphoria! I got lots of comments that this was the best wedding D... Read more

  • We had Nick Ferrington for our June 2019 wedding, and he did a fantastic job. He was very easy to work with before the wedding, when he helped us include our favorites in his playlists and offered very helpful recommendations in terms of which of our favorites might be better for dinner vs the dance floor. During the wedding he ran a perfect ceremony from a sound and microphone perspective, and then he very expertly managed the playlist to keep just about the whole wedding party on their feet the whole night. He played all of our "must play" requests, knew when was the right time to transition to a new song, and all of his contributions to the playlist were big hits with the wedding party. No complaints whatsoever.

  • Tim Ahler at Beat Train was fantastic to work with - so easygoing and friendly! A lot of things went wrong at our wedding and Tim saved the night with his positive attitude and FANTASTIC song selections! He had us dancing all night long! He was everything you want your DJ to be - intuitive, NOT cheesy and left everyone raving about what a fantastic job he did. The whole Beat Train crew was great from start to finish--they kept me on schedule and were so responsive. Highly recommend!

  • We hired Tim Ahler through Beat Train Productions for our wedding. Tim was very professional, organized, and thoughtful when it came to making a playlist and timeline that worked best for us. We had a pretty complicated timeline for the day, and he was there for every cue! He even came to the site the night before to help with the rehearsal and run through a sound check with our ceremony music performers. Thanks Tim!

  • We had Shane as the DJ for our wedding, and he was fantastic! Easy to work with, wonderful personality, professional, and did a great job. We skipped over a lot of the traditional wedding reception things - and Shane listened to all our requests. Absolutely No cheesy DJ stereotypes anywhere in ear shot! 100% recommend working with him and/ or Beat Train! We're so glad we did. :)

  • My husband and I went with Beat Train for our wedding after some pretty exhaustive research. Because we decided against using live music, what we really needed was a friendly, intuitive DJ who could read our lower-key crowd and shape the music to make our event the best it could be, no corny announcements needed. And from the very beginning, Shane was perfect. Before the event, he was great at offering suggestions for special moment songs, and about things I hadn't even thought of (such as "do you want the whole first dance song played because sometimes they can get a bit long and the bride and groom end up feeling awkward"). He was also very reassuring about my ceremony music playlist - I felt my requests were a bit unusual but he was totally cool with everything. Then, during the wedding he was great at paying attention to the room and what was happening (ie the flowergirl being a little hesitant about walking) and being flexible accordingly. I had been so anxious about everything go... Read more

  • Beat Train was fabulous. They were very responsive, informative and easy to work with. We chose Nick Ferrington as our DJ and couldn't be happier. We had never met him since we live in a different state but he made sure to have touch bases with us and understand exactly what we wanted. He was great coordinating with our other vendors on the day of the wedding to make sure everything ran smoothly and it was apparent how passionate he is about DJing. One of my favorite moments of the night was when I realized almost every single person at the wedding was dancing for the last song. Thanks Nick + Beat Train!
