  • It was pleasure working with The Esteem Latin Jazz Ensemble. Jim was very accommodating and professional. I hired them for an outdoor summer party. Their latin jazz was grooved with great rhythm and harmonies that everyone loved. Created a fun and comfortable atmosphere at the party.

  • Esteem Entertainment provided an amazing band for our annual fundraiser last weekend! The music was excellent and the guests enjoyed every song played! The singers and musicians sounded so much like the original artists but with their own talented sound! Also, the band was very flexible and responsive to every request we had with the schedule of the evening, volume of music, and their playlist which added to the overall success of the event. This is the second year we have used Esteen Entertainment and will continue to in the future! We highly recommend them!

  • I hired Esteem Entertainment All Star to play at my wedding October 5th and they were incredible. When booking with Jack I expressed to him that I wanted my guest on the dance floor all night and that is exactly what they made happen. The whole band was amazing they played a selection of different songs and sounded just like the true artists. The lead singers interacted with my guest and made sure everyone was having a good time. I am still hearing from my guest how amazing my band was on my wedding day. I would highly recommend them to play at your wedding or any other special event!!

  • My daughter just had her weddig on October 5,2018 and Jack G. with Esteem Entertainment Allstars were excellent. They had the dance floor packed the entire night and every song sounded exactly like the recordig artist. They made sure that they came into the audiance to get everyone dancing. My guests didn't stop telling us that they were excellent. If you are planning a wedding or party you need to go and check out this band and i can guarentee you won't be dissapointed. I have one more daughter getting married in the near future and I will definitely be calling Jack up again. I want to thank the entire band for making my daughter's wedding a funtastic evening.

  • Had Esteem Entertainment at our annual conference in Cape May last week and they were awesome! Our attendees usually don't get up and dance but the dance floor was filled this time around. The band made the whole night so memorable!

  • The band got guests on their feet the moment they began performing; they were very engaging! We'd use them again.

  • I can honestly say I feel extremely lucky for having found Reel Time Band to play at our wedding….when I had first begun the search for a wedding band, I instantly read every review I could, watched videos and compared prices. I wanted a band who would play a variety of music, get everyone on the dance floor and a band who was affordable. Reel Time Band did not disappoint! Jack was always available throughout the entire wedding planning process and answered any questions we had. It is so evident this band has so much experience and is so professional and the day went on without any glitches. The band played the ENTIRE night and there was never a moment where a recorded song was just playing in the background. They PERFORMED and involved all the guests. I can’t even tell you how many compliments we have gotten-a month later and it’s all people are talking about…”Where did you find that band?!!” They truly made our wedding night one of the most wonderful days of our li...

  • THE BAND WAS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!!! From my phone consultation with Jack, to the random questions we had through out the planning, the playlists, the requests everything was amazing! We hired the 8-piece Esteem All Stars and they were amazing!!! Every piece of the band was incredibly talented and high energy! Our dance floor was packed all night and all our guests are still raving about the band. Their variety of music was incredible. I even got to rap Juicy by Biggie Smalls with the band! It was so awesome! DEFINITELY ONE OF OUR BEST WEDDING DECISIONS EVER!

  • Dominic is awesome! We used him as our dj on May 12, 2018. Throughout the wedding planning Dominic was always available to go over details of the wedding. He has a great personality and is very professional. The entire reception ran so smooth and my husband and I were blown away by how many of our family and friends were on the dance floor! Everyone raved about the music and all of our requests were played. Dominic made sure hat our night was incredible and the memories that he helped us create are irreplaceable. We would recommend his services for weddings or any event to all of our family and friends!!

  • These guys were excellent. Dominic was responsive over both phone and email from the start all the way up to the day of the wedding and took time to review our ceremony and reception music and cues in person prior to the start of the wedding. They took our dance floor playlist ideas and worked them into a great rhythm; the floor was literally NEVER empty even though we had a largely older crowd. Often the floor was completely packed with people and everyone was having a great time. 4 hours of dancing somehow didn't seem like enough simply because things were going so well we didn't want it to end. If i could think of any complaint, it's that my feet still hurt 4 days later. ;-) You won't be disappointed.

  • My wife and I have nothing but great things to say regarding Esteem. They made our wedding a great party and the team was easy to work with. If you’re in the market for a band in he tri-state area you must give them a call!

  • We could not be happier to have chosen Dominic to DJ our wedding. He is professional, experienced, and fair. I found working with DJ Dominic to be stress-reducing, which is rare when hiring wedding vendors. Our Ceremony and Reception were on multiple floors of a building, we had a live singer, and multiple timed dances – all of which Dominic handled without breaking a sweat. He read the crowd, had 200 people dancing for hours on end, and left the room cleaner than he found it. He is the best man for the job, no question!

  • Esteem Entertainment was referred to us for our wedding. We had the All-Stars including a DJ play and got a great deal. We were so excited to have a band and read great reviews. Unfortunately, they did not live up to our expectations. We spent hours working on a song list. The majority of the songs we picked were from their website playlist. We had a very specific "Do Not Play" list. They ended up playing songs from the "Do Not Play" list and did not play many of our "Wedding Favorites." During the bridal party entrances, they played the Bride and Grooms entrance song which was supposed to be different from the bridal party song (not a huge deal, but it wasn't the only mishap). At the end of the night, when the guests were chanting "one more song," they chose a song NOT on the list (we were not a fan of the song they chose). We had to repeatedly tell the band leader to stick to the list and even had to request specific songs from the DJ. While our guests had a great time and enjoye... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    We are so glad the guests at this event had a great time, enjoyed the band a great deal and that several of them commented on how great the band was. We trust the party flowed, everyone danced and a good time was had by all. When we receive an extensive list of over 120 requests we share with our clients well in advance that at an event we can realistically play from 35 to 50 songs. Regarding the Do Not Play list, our singer, in trying to keep the party going called one of the songs in the middle of a medley of songs. In the moment he simply forgot and we regret that. Finally, the last song played is a current party favorite and was offered past the time agreed upon and past when the venue wanted to remain open. Again, we regret those minor misunderstandings and are very pleased that the guests enjoyed our performance so much.
