  • Hired the Harts (Richie and Debbie) after I already planned my daughter's engagement party but needed their help in decorating and setting up the venue. They had great suggestions and did an outstanding job. The room was transformed from blah to a high energy party setting. My daughter wanted a club atmosphere and it was delivered! From the lighted stage, bar and hight top tables to the taple settings and flowers, the room was they flush with club and high energy ambience. I would definetley recommend as they listen to what you envision and they deliver!

  • Our DJ, Russell, played the exact songs we wanted and kept our afternoon party alive the whole time! Our family and friends had an amazing day and are still talking about it 2 weeks later. We also had Danny play the sax and sing, and everyone said what a beautiful and special touch that was! I would definitely recommend him! We are very happy with Richie Hart and his team. Thank you to all for a job well done and for making our wedding reception extra special! :)

  • We used Richie Hart Events. And extremely glad we did. Our Mc was Brian Miller. In all honesty, Brian is hands down the BEST MC on the planet. No joke, with how many wedding we have been too and now ours... Brian made our night so much fun. Everyone loved him and wanted to take pictures with him lol. Brian and I ( the bride) even got to have a salsa dance moment and it was EPIC. Seriously i can not recommend Brian enough as the MC. The dj alone was great, we did ask for certain music that wasn’t all played. But! I will not at all complain cause he played BETTER music. He seriously pulled out the best jams. The dance floor never ended! We put our trust in that team to keep that floor going and I am so glad we did. They knew what to do and what not to do! Highly recommend.

  • The Richie Hart team was amazing! From start to finish they listened to everything we wanted. My fiance wanted an acoustic guitarist for the cocktail hour and he had a long list of songs that he wanted to be played. He played every song perfectly and I heard many compliments from my guests. The MC, Too Nice, was absolutely amazing! He kept the party going and got everyone out of their seats. He definitely made my wedding fun and memorable. I highly recommend having live musicians. Richie provided a drummer and saxophone players. All my guests loved interacting with them and banging on the drums. If you want an expert in the industry for your event, see Richie Hart and his team!

  • We want to thank Richie Hart from the bottom of our hearts. One of the memorable things my husband loved most about Richie is that immediately after the ceremony, Richie was right there to congratulate us with such enthusiasm. His energy is simply unmatched. I have never seen him without a huge smile on his face and you can just tell how unbelievably passionate he is about what he does. We knew that his band and DJ would be amazing, but they exceeded our expectations and absolutely blew us away. Their band is the best I have ever seen in my life. Their singers and musicians are so incredibly talented and are able to engage the crowd. The dance floor was packed all night. If I had to describe this company in one word, it would be charismatic. They are all so cool and down to earth and have a charm and energy that made the wedding so much fun. Their string quartet played so beautifully and their drummer was just having the time of his life!!! We are in awe at the delivery of their perfor... Read more

Crowd Pleasing Wedding Event, Musicians par excellence. David and I cannot express our pleasure, admiration, accolades and gratitude enough for the wonderful musical team you and Jill put together for us!

The Violinist Michael, and Pianist Marty, were a fantastic duo and I thank them for playing my selections for the Hospitality and Ceremony events. Everyone commented and appreciated their appropriate selections and expressed their favorable reactions to us. For the cocktail hour and reception, Danny as Sax and Vocalist was outstanding.

  • WOW! Where do we begin? Richie Hart Events was everything we had hoped for and more with our DJ and MC needs. It’s clear why these guys are the best in the industry. From start to finish, they really pulled out all the stops to make the night enjoyable and memorable for all our guests. The dance floor was never empty. Richie was a big help, creatively, to make sure our wedding would be perfect, and it was. They understood what we wanted and fulfilled all our expectations. We recommend them to everyone we know for all occasions! A big THANK YOU to Richie Hart Events for helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams!

  • We got married at the Garden City Hotel and are so happy that we chose Richie Hart to provide our music and entertainment. We combined a DJ with an MC and live percussionist and saxophone player (this combo worked great) and our guests still rave about how incredible they were. We wanted our wedding to have a party vibe with people spending more time on the dance floor than at their tables. After just one conversation with Richie, we were convinced that he would be the perfect guy to keep our guests partying all night. He was both professional and genuinely excited about being a part of our wedding. As promised, Richie and his musicians were fun, energetic, and interactive with our guests, keeping everyone on the dance floor the entire night (bringing out bongos for people to play was a big hit). If you’re looking for a fun party vibe, we strongly recommend using Richie Hart.

  • Richie Hart was absolutely incredible! They exceeded all of my expectations and beyond. Every single one of my guests had an incredible time and kept raving about the music and the entire set-up. I could not have dreamed of a better set-list, professional team, and just overall performance by Richie Hart. I highly HIGHLY recommend them and am 1000000% certain that they will make your event stay apart from the rest. Amazing and best choice I made (other than my husband) :)

  • we can't say enough about Richie Hart Events. A friend of mine Anne recommended them for our wedding on Aug 27,2017. The music was great , lighting made the room sparkle and most of all Richie sent over as a complementary service from him himself and MC . Thank you for making our day so special!!!

  • I had my wedding on 6-10-17 at Stonebridge Country Club... I booked a DJ with a percussion and sax. I was skeptical to go with the mix of DJ and live music because I have been to some weddings that had live music and no one danced and they pretty much ruined every song they played, especially since we are a young couple getting married music is very important. Richie insisted they were great and it added an element of spice and excitement to the night and to the music, he was right!!! From the first song I knew we made the right decision. Every song that played, the sax just made it better, they were interactive but not too over the top. He was flexible and worked with our budget and down to the changes I made the day of! Could not of asked for a better turn out.

  • If you hire Richie Hart Events, be prepared for a personalized experience you will never forget. We utilized the fantastic planning services of Debbie Hart, who not only kept me and my mother semi-sane through the process and the event itself, but help us plan every last detail of the day. Debbie is absolutely amazing and fantastic to work with and will be as hands on as you need her to be without ever letting you feel like you have no control or say over your event. Her experience and knowledge is part of the reason people are still talking about our wedding over two months out! When owner, Richie Hart, gets involved in your event, he gets completely immersed and strives to give you everything you dreamed of and more. Sometimes he can get a little overexcited and over the top and you need to rein him in, but that is just because he gets excited and wants to do more for you. Richie provided the lighting, photo booth, booked the entertainment for the evening, and also provid... Read more

  • The only imperfect part of our perfect day. Buyer beware! About 36 hours before my wedding I received an email telling me I had to send them an additional $200 for the event. I had previously discussed schedule and even produced an exact timeline of the event. I got an email 3 days prior saying we were totally good-to-go on all logistics. It was an attempt at extortion. I denied it--- its not like $200 in the grand scheme of a wedding is a big deal, but I think that’s exactly why the felt so cavalier to demand it. I had paid in-full along with the initial contract and did not take a payment option instead. This was NOT about the money. When I said no- that it was completely inappropriate- I was told I had to ‘speak to Richie then.’ They were threatening to pull out (conveniently) with no time to find a replacement. When I spoke to Richie I explained that if the cocktail hour (that was in every single email we exchanged prior) somehow warranted $200 more I could use ... Read more

    responded with the following comments.

    Dear Michael, We are surprised to read such a poor review, however, we do appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback. As a company we are always striving to do better and exceed expectations. And, for over 3 decades, Richie Hart Events has thrived as a leader in the entertainment industry and as a preferred vendor at top venues across the tristate area and we’d like to take this time to respond. First, it is important to note that you were contracted for a DJ for your 4 hour reception as indicated on your contract which unfortunately we are unable to attach to this response. Prior to all events we request that our clients fill out a formality sheet so that we may honor their requests and make sure all logistics are correct. After reviewing your formalities, we noticed that you circled yes, that we would be providing music for your cocktail hour. This is when we reached out to you. We were certainly not trying to extort money from you as stated in your review. Rather, we were trying to accommodate you by having our DJ play an additional hour and had asked for a nominal fee for this extra hour. Second, our reputation precedes us and everyone and anyone that has worked with us in the past 30 years will say we are nothing but professional, honest and have exceptional execution. We certainly were not threatening to “pull out” as you stated. This is simply not true. As Richie is the owner of the company and makes all final financial decisions, it made sense to escalate your situation and for you to have a conversation with him. As it turned out, Richie waived the fee for the fifth hour and, our DJ was set, ready to go and began playing music extra early at 11:19 providing you with over 5 1/2 hours of music. Third, as we are in a service industry, gratuity is usual and customary especially when extra service is extended. As a professional, Richie was suggesting and advising what was proper, considering the DJ was only contracted for 4 hours. I’m not sure why you felt the DJ should have performed extended time and not be compensated. However, as you had shown, every client has the right to tip as they please. Finally, your three song requests were NOT played back to back following your first dance (“Never Enough” 13:11) as you indicated. Rather, they were played later in the party per our song log which we have for every event. Client reviews are important to us on many levels and your comments were quite disturbing, especially given the inaccurate nature of them. As a company, we will continue to strive for excellence and wish you and Kristin well.
