  • Greg Young with Northeast Event Design was absolutely amazing. He did a great job from answering my inquiry to playing our last song. Greg was very easy to work with and he made sure we had the best services possible for our reception. Not only did he play great music, offer fantastic services, but also went above and beyond by offering services we hadn't requested, but he knew we would enjoy. Greg impressed everyone in our wedding party and everyone at our reception. We will continue to use Greg for any large events we host going forward. My wife and I offer the best possible recommendation for Greg as he was the best DJ we've experienced at any event we've gone to.

  • If it were possible to give Danny and the Northeast Event Design team six stars we would. Danny took time to meet with us before hand to make sure he understood our expectations of the evening, had thorough surveys that gave us confidence in his organizational skills, and then delivered beyond expectation on the evening of our wedding. Our friends and families left in amazement at the exceptional DJ/MC service provided. I would recommend Northeast Event Design to anyone looking for a professional, skilled, detail orientated, and talented DJ.

  • Danny was absolutely amazing. My husband and I had heard him play at one of our friends' weddings, and after listening to him, we knew we had to have him for our wedding. We were able to book with him and right from the get-go, we received such professional service and speedy responses to calls and emails. Danny had met with us for lunch before the wedding to go over final details, and he told us how much of a privilege it was for him to be asked to be such an important role in our special day, and that he is there to serve us and anything we may need. That really stuck with me, I've never had any other vendors tell me that and that made me feel so special. Danny showed up early for the reception and had everything set up very quickly. The uplighting looked amazing! The way he times songs, chooses songs, and talks to the crowd is unreal. Everyone kept asking my husband and I to please extend the reception to another hour so they can keep dancing. Almost two months have passed now since... Read more

  • I have worked with Greg from Northeast Event Design both professionally as another wedding professional in the industry, and personally as a bride! To say he's the best is an understatement. Professional, friendly, caring, genuine... I could go on and on. He works with you closely to make sure your ceremony and/or reception includes all of the details you dreamed of, and will provide honest feedback and suggestions if you don't have specific ideas. Our dance floor (and the many dance floors I've witnessed from other weddings) was NEVER bare. I truly believe the vibe of your reception is solely dependent on the DJ/music playing, and Greg's vibe is always on point because he is incredible at reading the crowd he's catering to. He mixes songs in real time, will play your crazy requests, and is an excellent emcee. Lastly, his equipment is top notch and reliable, and his uplighting transformed our tent in a beautiful way. Don't hesitate booking him for your wedding or event! You will absolu... Read more

  • Danny DeBruin was absolutely wonderful to work with. Of all the things a bride and groom have to worry about, not once did we ever have to worry about DJ/entertainment related anything. Not only did our DJ set up a photo booth for our guest book, but he made sure the special touches we wanted at our wedding were incorporated to reflect our relationship. The lighting that was in our package made our wedding reception come alive! We are 4 days post wedding and we still are receiving compliments about hosting the funnest reception so far. Our entertainment truly made this day so much fun and so very special. Our wedding had many surprises leading up to our day and having Danny DeBruin to work with was nothing short of perfect. He made us as a couple feel so special and he was so focused on our special day with each meeting we had leading up to the wedding. Everything ran so smoothly with Northeast in charge of our music, announcements, and photo booth. Thank you Northeast but Dan... Read more

  • This review is long overdue and much deserved. My wife and I were looking for a DJ and potentially a company that could provide photo booth services. We went to a wedding show and found most of the DJs just gave us a weird vibe. (They all came off like Jon Lovitz in the movie the Wedding Singer. Google that if you don't get the reference.) When we met Greg in person we knew he was the one. He was professional, friendly, experienced, and so easy to work with. He played the music we loved (90's hip hop mixed with some modern contemporary stuff) and at the same time helped the wedding reception run smoothly without feeling he was "taking over the show" when he was on the microphone. He also did an outstanding job mixing in Greek music which was a must as my side of the family is basically out of the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding. On top of the DJ services the professional uplighting he brought and set up in our wedding venue transformed it into a gorgeous wedding space. He change... Read more

  • My husband and I could not have been more pleased that we chose Northeast Event Design to DJ our wedding! From the moment we met with Danny you could tell that he was the perfect choice. He was professional, organized and very knowledgeable. Danny took the time to go over all of the different options that Northeast Event Design has to offer and personalized it to fit our budget. Danny sent us an organized worksheet that really helped us breakdown how the wedding should flow when it comes to music. This helped us tremendously! Throughout the whole process whenever we had questions it was great to know that Danny was always available and more than willing to take the time to answer them. About a week prior to our wedding Danny met with us to review our song choices from the worksheet. He also helped us build a personalized timeline of how we wanted the night to go. The day of our wedding Danny worked well with our other vendors to ensure everything flowed smoothly. We recei... Read more

  • Danny was AMAZING! From our first conversation with him to the very end of our wedding he was professional, easy to communicate with, friendly and really made our wedding comfortable. He explained pricing and services so everything was easy for us to understand. The day of our wedding he was the most prepared out of all our vendors and made our wedding day perfect. I did not have a day of cordinator for the wedding but Danny did a wonderful job keeping the time and announcing what people should expect next and it made for a seamless flow throughout the entire day. The wedding went on longer than expected and Danny was so willing to keep the party going. He also did an amazing job at choosing music. We had a few must play songs but for the most part Danny worked his magic and played songs that the entire wedding party (260 people) could dance to and have fun with. I cannot recommend Danny enough. If you are looking for a reliable, friendly, professional and amazing DJ than choose Danny... Read more

  • Greg at Northeast Events was an excellent DJ and entertainer for our summer wedding. From the initial phone call and meeting to the very last song, he was both easy to work with and professional. The ceremony and reception went flawlessly because he was prepared which was awesome. During the ceremony, he timed all of the songs perfectly and had the microphones set for the readings. You could tell that Greg has a lot of experience and was very kind and willing to put us first to make our wedding everything we wanted. Greg was very helpful throughout our planning and met with us twice, making the trip down from Lisbon to Portland both times. He was willing to offer as much guidance as we needed and gave us a detailed worksheet to help select songs for certain parts of the night which was very useful. He was also able to play every song we listed for the dinner hour and hit many of our favorites during the dancing part of our reception. If you don’t have as many specific songs for ... Read more

  • By far one of the best decisions my husband and I made during our planning process was choosing Danny at Northeast Event Design as our wedding entertainment. We met Danny very early on in our planning process and knew he was the right choice for us. He was very patient with all my requests to meet to make sure everything was on track. His knowledge of music and the whole wedding process was amazing and made us both feel at ease about everything. I don't think there was a time during our reception that the dance floor was not packed with friends and family. His ability to read the room and decide on the best songs to play is amazing. In addition to the music Danny also had uplighting set up which was great (he even matched our colors!) I highly recommend Danny for anyone looking to make sure they're reception is one guests remember!

  • Short Answer: Hire Danny Long Answer: We'd been to weddings without DJs and noticed the music suffers and there is a critical lack of structure. We hired Danny to help with this and we got SO much more. Danny wore many super-helpful hats. In the pre-wedding questions he acted as ceremony-design consultant, providing us with a knowledge database to help with song selection and various aspects of the ceremony, dinner. At the wedding he coordinated with all the vendors and guests giving toasts etc. I noticed he had an exceptional ability to calmly and precisely explain the details and order-of-events in say, bridge-father dance, including details like, "and then you will help the bride to her chair." On the dance floor Danny had pretty much everyone dancing, he made announcements every time the shuttle was nearby, and he had people dancing who don't typically dance, like our older guests. Really a magical night. If I were looking for a DJ in the Maine area, I would hire Danny. But if... Read more

  • I met Danny at a bridal show. Talked with him briefly then spoke with 4 other DJs. Dan made the best first impression! I am glad I stuck with my gut & chose him to DJ my wedding. He honored our list of do & do not play songs. He was very good at reading the crowd, knowing when to mix out of a song if people weren't feeling it. He was also great about reminding our guests to sign our guestbook. The photo booth was also a big hit! I will for sure be recommending Northeast Event Design to my family & friends!

  • Danny exceeded our expectations and kept our family and friends on the dance floor until the very last song! He was professional and accommodating throughout the planning process which was helpful as we were planning our wedding from another state. His presentation was polished and spot on the night of the event. He provided pipe and drape and amber up lighting for the reception which helped transform our reception venue. Our guests loved the photo booth and the attendant working with him was courteous and professional. We would absolutely recommend Northeast Event Design to anyone planning a wedding or special event!! This team truly goes above and beyond.

  • Greg was absolutely fantastic for our mid-September Wedding. He was super attentive to the dance floor and worked well with our wedding coordinator to ensure no undue pauses or breaks in the action. The variety of music that he played kept the dance floor rocking from the moment it opened until the end of the reception. He provided us with a great planning sheet before the wedding that we could customize to our needs. My wife and I must have put 50 songs of who knows how many genres down on the lists for Dinner/Dance music before truncating it to 10 or so to let Greg do his thing. It felt like almost every song that we deleted from that list Greg ended up playing without us suggesting, he was that locked in. Stop shopping and book Northeast Event Design now, you will absolutely not be disappointed with the professionalism and quality entertainment you and your guests receive.
