“Addam is the best event DJ we've ever heard! He helped make our wedding unforgettable and the wonderful time we hoped so much it would be. He is friendly, flexible, attentive, responsive and responsible- what more can we say? We’d recommend him for any occasion.”
- Megan Berry
• Brad Blake / Allen Gove wedding :
“We absolutely loved working with Addam. He brings the perfect balance of professionalism, excitement in what he does, and genuine caring that the outcome is exactly what you want. He continually checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were perfectly comfortable going into our wedding day. We've gotten so many comments about how great the DJ was, how "into it" he seemed, how people just couldn't stop dancing because the music was so good, etc.. His enjoyment of what he does shines through. It's obviously much more than just a job to Addam - it's a passion. He comes with our highest recommendation (and we can be pretty darn picky).”
- Brad Blake & Allen Gove
• James Rosenthal / Julia Feldman wedding :
“We had hoped Addam could be our DJ from the moment we first encountered him working at a friend’s wedding. Addam really took our vision and made it a reality. With his honest and creative suggestions and respect for our specific requests and tastes, we were really able to capture the variety of music that represents us, our family, and our friends. He saved the ceremony for us (and a possible breakdown for the bride!) when he corrected a timing error made by the wedding coordinator and quickly but subtly changed the music to conceal the coordinator’s mistake. From the initial consult to the last moment of the wedding, Addam was available, helpful, calm, humorous, and confident. We feel lucky to have worked with him on our special day and would undoubtedly refer loved ones to him for any event.”
- Julia Rosenthal
• Brendan Hegarty / Jennifer Capone wedding:
“We had 180 people at our wedding… and the music was perfect. I have never seen a dance floor so filled during a wedding, and many of our guests commented during and after the wedding on how they enjoyed the music. I would like to emphasize that the dance floor was filled for almost the entire reception, until it was time to call it a night! Addam also was the music man for my best friend's wedding, and again he was a big reason for the day being so memorable. My wife and I found Addam to be very helpful and knowledgeable about what would be great music for cocktail hr, his choices being very classy and perfect for the mood we wanted before the reception. We found his price to be quite reasonable, especially for the service we were provided. In short I highly recommend Addam for his knowledge, professionalism, and experience as a DJ!”
- Brendan Hegarty
• Phil Higgins / Matt Smith wedding :
“It is with complete sincerity and utter lack of pretense that my husband Matt and I recommend DJ Addam for any and all DJ-entertainment needs. The fact that this recommendation will come off sounding like a paid advertisement speaks to the level of admiration we have for Addam. Seriously, he's so much more than a DJ. He is a collaborator, willing to take the time to sit with his clients and get a full sense of their musical tastes and expectations. He is an artist, taking his clients' specific tastes and interpreting them together with his own ideas to create seamless playlists of songs that melt almost imperceptibly into one another and leave his audiences literally begging for more. He is flexible, willing to step up to the mic if that's what's called for, but equally cool with just standing back and letting the music speak for itself. Above all else, Addam is one of the kindest, gentlest, and most sincere people you are likely to meet. Our guests were literally falling over themselves, telling us how it was the most fun they had ever had at a wedding, or really anywhere, for that matter. It is with whole hearts, therefore, that we endorse Addam for your event. We could go on. And if you want to call us, we will.”
- Phil Higgins
Sheila Constantino / John Magovern wedding :
“The reception was fantastic, and we got lots of compliments on your work! While we weren't expecting a lot of dancing for an early afternoon reception, the floor was busy all day, and you took cues from the crowd to keep the momentum going. You were extremely responsive to all of my questions during the planning process, and handled all of my last minute decisions professionally and gracefully. There's not a person in that room who'd guess that my dad and I didn't decide on our song until that morning! Thanks again!”
- Sheila Constantino
• Tom Roux / MaryDee Glynn wedding, and Millennium Pharmaceuticals corporate events:
“As a part-time DJ myself, I was incredibly selective while searching for a DJ to perform at my own wedding in October 2002. My fiancée at the time (now wife) and I talked to several different agencies and met with a couple of individual disc jockeys, but only grew more frustrated as the process wore on -- we found it difficult to find someone who not only possessed a solid depth of experience and sound musical knowledge but who would also take the time to make our celebration personal and unique. So many DJ’s in the market today perform the same mundane songs at back-to-back events weekend after weekend that their spark has long since faded. I was so mistrustful of the DJ’s we had met that I even contemplated trying to DJ my own reception.
That frustration and mistrust ended the moment dj addam offered to perform for us. While I had hired addam on several occasions to play at corporate functions through my job planning large-scale events, I hadn’t realized that he also performed at weddings.
To give you a sense of how incredibly well everything worked out, here is a direct quote from an email I sent to addam shortly after the wedding:
‘Just wanted to send you another thank-you for a great performance on Saturday - I had the time of my life and SO MANY people have commented on how much fun they had dancing. There were family-members dancing whom I've never seen dance before!’
Not only did addam create a festive, inclusive atmosphere for the widely ranging demographics of our guests, but he also mixed a perfect blend of their requests, our personal favorites, and his own inimitably styled selections. The dance floor was hopping so much that by the end of addam’s phenomenal overtime set it had physically shifted several feet!
If you’re looking for a seasoned professional, talented beat-mixer, stylistic individual, and warm, easy-to-work-with soul, than I can make no stronger recommendation than to hire dj addam for your event.”
- Tom Roux, aka DJ Tommy D
• Noelle Millen / Jim Keefe wedding :
Jim and I both thank you for doing such a fabulous job at our wedding reception on May 15th! I cannot tell you how many guests have come up to us and said what a blast they had!!! More than a few have said it was the best wedding they have ever attended. They also commented on how much fun you were. Everyone at the reception, young and older, was on the dance floor at some point. We could not have been more pleased. The mix of songs was perfect, from the cocktail hour, through dinner, and of course after dessert. Thank you again for helping to make our special day such a memorable one! Please feel free to use us as a referral.”
- Noelle and Jim Keefe
• MIT - Center for Cancer Research corporate events:
“Addam rocks! He was a real crowd-pleaser at two functions I hosted for a college & post-college age group. He had us all on our feet with great music, low-key dj-ing and a dance contest, too.”

“Addam has provided music for several events for our department -- including the annual summer picnic and Holiday Dinner Dance. On all occasions he has not only been professional and reliable, but he has met the needs of our group for very different events. Working with Addam has been enjoyable because he understood and addressed my concerns but also because he has a sense of humor!”

• from Anne McGrath, to Curtis and Ana at CK Entertainment (subcontractor) :
“Dear Curtis and Ana,
I just wanted to take a minute of your time to thank you both. Last Saturday was my wedding and Addam was the DJ. I can't tell you how great of a job he did. Everyone at the wedding was amazed at how great the music was. Addam was so professional and always made sure that we knew what was happening and made us feel so comfortable. Addam played all the right music; it was as if he knew what everyone wanted to hear. At no time once the festivities began were there more than 5 people sitting at a time, because everyone (even the people that don't dance) were dancing. I can't thank the two of you as well as Addam for making my special day even more special. I know you won't mind, but I have recommended your services as well as Addams to others I know of that are getting married! Thanks again.”
- Anne M. McGrath
• from Kath-e Miller of Bionositcs Corp, to Curtis at CK Entertainment :
“Well Well Well, Addam was our dj for the Christmas Party and we loved him. What a nice guy and he played the best music for us. I told him he could eat all he wanted and I had some drink coupons for him, but he stuck to water and I think he is a vegetabletarian (:) He is a sweetie, better known as Billy Idol around Bionostics. I will certainly keep you guys in mind for next year’s party. Many Many Thanks to you guys!!!”
- Kath-e Miller
• from Halla Yang, to Curtis at CK Entertainment :
“Thanks so much for providing us with DJ Addam for our wedding on June 26 at the Loeb House at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We have gotten many compliments about the DJ from our guests. The music was perfectly suited for the occasion, and all the guests were dancing all night long, even my parents and my wife's parents. Addam knew exactly what to say, when to say, and when not to do anything (e.g. no conga lines, no Macarena... exactly as we had requested). Incidentally, we have lots of great video footage of the crowded dance floor and of the parents doing their hilarious dances. In short, Addam was the perfect DJ- thanks for making our wedding reception a fun and exciting night to remember!”
- Halla Yang
• Nicole Molla / Josh Preston wedding :
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your services and performance at our wedding. You went above and beyond the call. We truly appreciate you making our day special! You made sure that every little detail worked beautifully. The music was fabulous. Thanks again!”
- Nicole and Josh Preston
• David Grenier / Kenna Leach wedding :
“Adam was very professional and set the tone for the wedding reception Fantastically! The music was well put together and always appropriate. He was very respectful of our wishes and never tried to run the show as I have seen other DJ's do in other weddings. Thanks so much Addam!!!”
- Dave Grenier
• Tyler Krpata / Erin Cunningham wedding :
“Given that I was familiar with Addam via MA's club scene, when it came time to plan our wedding, Addam was the only DJ I would settle for! I knew that he would be able to pull together a night of entertainment that was personal and truly suited to our less-than-traditional tastes, and he absolutely came through.
Addam was both extremely professional and helpful in the planning of our reception. Not only did he listen to and comply with each of our musical requests during consultation, but I also felt very comfortable in allowing him to take the reigns with regard to a mix of music to be played during our cocktail hour and seated dinner; in fact, I recall calling him over to our table during dinner to thank him for putting together such a fabulous mix!
Addam was also very skilled at handling my busy, babbling wedding party when it came time to make our entrances into the reception...that takes courage and talent!!! Never in a million years did I expect to see my father on the dance floor, jigging away to our musical choices, but there he was! Addam made it exciting and warm. I could not have asked for a better DJ for our wedding, and I recommend his services unreservedly.”
- Erin (Cunningham) Krpata
• Salem Official Witches’ Ball & Vampires’ Masquerade Ball :
"DJ addambomb has become an indispensable asset to my October Festival. After adding him to the Vampires' Masquerade Ball in 2005, that event was outselling our more popular event, The Witches' Ball, in 2006. So, we added him to the Witches' Ball in that year and now ticket sales for the Witches' Ball are at five times the sales of last year! I attribute that in large part to Addam's ability to keep the crowd entranced with his music!"
- Christian Day, Festival of the Dead
• Matt McKeon / Alison Jones wedding :
“I was nervous about hiring a DJ for our wedding, thanks to our diverse list of guests. Thankfully, a friend of ours referred us to Addam, and we couldn't have been happier with the result. He was gracious and thoroughly professional before, during, and after the wedding. His performance as a DJ and an MC was impeccable -- everyone from my great-aunt to my goth-clubbing friends to my teenage cousin was up and dancing that night. We had a great party and many wonderful memories thanks to him, and I'd recommend him without hesitation.”
- Matt McKeon
• Brian Baker / Elizabeth Dunn wedding :
“Addam had the floor filled all night! He took 4 generations of people (with picky musical taste, might I add), and kept them all smiling and dancing all evening. One of the best decisions of planning our wedding was picking Addam to spin music on our special day. He's professional and was fun to work with. Thanks for everything Addam!!”
- Bryan Baker
• Tim Mueller / Elisa Alonso wedding :
“Thanks for the great DJ’ing at our reception! Our guests had a great time and loved the music, as you could probably tell!”
- Tim Mueller
• Bob Masys II / Jason Damas wedding :
“We hired Addam to be the DJ at our wedding after seeing him at a wedding of two friends of ours. At both events, he did a fantastic job of playing a dynamic mix of music that really reached out to the audiences at the parties while also setting a high musical standard. Being big music fans, we were a bit wary of most wedding-style DJs ("Y.M.C.A." isn't for us) and weren't sure how we'd be able to find someone who would better represent our tastes to the crowd. What's even better is that Addam functioned as the emcee and all around go-to guy for the entire ceremony and reception, which were held in one batch in the same place. Addam met with us several times leading up to the wedding so he got to know us and got a sense of our guests so he would be able to make the entire event flow seamlessly. For people who really love music and who want more than just a DJ, most standard event DJs just won't do the trick. Addam is the best you can get.”
- Jason Damas and Bob Masys II
• Meaghann Barber / Scott Nilsen wedding :
"My husband & I couldn't have been happier with Addam! He did a fantastic job of getting everyone out on the dance floor while being a "class act" dj. Our guests are still talking about how great our dj was & what a fun time they had dancing the night away at our wedding. If you're looking for a professional dj who takes pride in his work & the service he provides for his clients, then Addam is your guy. My wedding day was a perfect day - I give a lot of credit to Addam for his talent in making the reception even better than what we imagined. We seriously feel that he is an AWESOME dj....and we'll always recommend him! :)"
- Meaghann and Scott
• Allison Leary / Jonathon King wedding :
DJ Addam was the DJ for my renaissance-inspired pagan wedding. He was all we could have asked for and more. He was willing to play Renaissance-style music during the dinner portion of the reception. After dinner was over, he kept the music flowing. He knew how to play music for all of the different guests: 70s/disco/pop style music early in the evening to get people on the dance floor and keep the older folks happy, and then switching over to the goth/industrial music (the style that my husband and I prefer to dance to) later that night. Addam was really great about playing songs that we really liked and not once did we hear anything from the "do not play" list. Also, can you say that you've seen your mother dance to The Cure at your wedding? I can!
- Allison King
• Milton High School class of 1984 reunion :
Awesome job last week! I wanted to thank you again for your efforts. You really mixed it up well, and sent me down "Memory Lane" a couple of times. I know my wife and her crew really enjoyed themselves. We will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for DJ services. Thanks again and Good Luck!
- Kevin Whitney
• Gia Manalio / Justin Bonaventura wedding :
The minute we started planning the wedding, we knew we wanted Addam to DJ/MC. He is a true professional. He sat with me beforehand and took the time to go over every detail of the day, asking tons of questions and really listening to what I wanted. And when I was unsure about something, he offered knowledgeable and thoughtful suggestions. I got so many compliments on his musical choices, ability to keep things going on the floor, MCing, and just how sincerely happy he looked up there and how welcome he made people feel. We couldn’t be happier that he was a part of our day.
P.S. both our moms had a little crush on him. ;)
- Gia Manalio-Bonaventura
• Marielena Della Cioppa / Nicholas Szumowski wedding :
Addam was GREAT. He was extremely professional and easy to work with, and he was very attentive to all details of the reception. He was careful to make sure he pronounced everyone's names correctly and that he knew exactly how we wanted to reception to go. He worked really well with all the other vendors on the wedding day and always made sure everyone was on the same page and knew what was supposed to be happening when. He was also very receptive to our must-play list and was really good at suggesting songs for reception moments that really fit with our taste in music. He was never hokey, but still had a great, up-beat energy when making any announcements. And most importantly he had everyone dancing ALL NIGHT. Our friends and our parents' friends all enjoyed the music he played and our wedding really turned into a fun, laid back dance party. I had so many people comment on how great the music was and how much fun they had. The reception ended at 9, but if we didn't have to clear out I'm pretty sure it could have gone on until midnight, people were having so much fun. He really seems to enjoy what he does and it shows. Also, he gives really great hugs.
- Lena Szumowski
• Elissa Crary / Terrence Coogan wedding :
I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job at the wedding. It was perfect! Terry and I had the best time and I know everyone else did too. The music was perfect... People are still telling me how much fun they had. You really listened to what we said we did and didn't like and followed it and that made everything that much better. So thanks again, so much. You rule!
- Elissa Crary-Coogan
• Kara McLellan / Sean Murphy wedding :
"When my husband and I started looking for our wedding dj, we didn't know where to start. We interviewed a few djs from a large boston-based entertainment company, and were not confident that any of them were a good fit. Our friend found out that we were looking for a dj, and quickly convinced us that we should talk to dj addam, who he'd hired for his wedding a year before. We emailed addam right away, and after meeting with him we knew that he was the perfect dj for us! Dj addam is professional, reliable, and really understands the vision of the event. from the moment our dinner service ended at our reception, the dance floor was packed for the rest of the evening. All of our guests commented on the amazing dj, and how much fun they had at the reception because of the music! In fact, several of our guests now plan to hire addam for their upcoming weddings. One look at our reception photos is a testament to the energetic, exciting, and joyous atmosphere created by addam and his impressive talent for making an event special. We fully recommend dj addam to anyone looking for unforgettable entertainment for their event!"
- Kara McLellan Murphy
• Shannon Davis / Alison Perkel wedding :
After many years of hearing Addam spin at local nightclubs, we hired him for our wedding. He was such a success that we were able to see him at many other weddings thereafter. I was impressed with his versatility - having musical knowledge in every area someone could request from classical to swing to industrial rock. He also could vary his "persona", from classic wedding DJ to more subdued. He was easy to work with - we had a bellydancer at our wedding and he worked well with her. We got exactly the kind of music we wanted at our wedding, completely unique to us. I cherish the memories and the music that made it happen.
- Shannon Davis
“I not only have hired addam, I've also worked several events with him (wedding photographer) and been the guest of several others that he's worked at. He is, by far, the most professional, most personable, most people on the dance floor dj I've ever seen. His musical knowledge is amazing and he easily moves from 20s swing to hip hop, to electronica, to 80s, to 70s, to 90s - to whatever you want - and that your guests want.”
- Alison Perkel
• Hilary Folger / Chae Yi wedding :
“Addam was fantastic at our wedding. He was relaxed, patient, and fun and his presence was calming during a crazy day with hundreds of guests. He played great tunes, was able to read the mood of the crowd and kept everybody moving, young and old. He's a great guy, a great DJ and we couldn't recommend him more highly.”
- Hilary & Chae
• Jennifer Han / Grant Rice wedding :
“Addam was absolutely amazing at our July wedding. He strategically incorporated our alternative music tastes with songs the older crowd could enjoy. He was really receptive to our requests and his presence truly vibed with our whole evening. He was also professional and Loads of fun!!! We received MANY compliments about him from everyone who attended and they all said he was the best DJ they have heard at a wedding and most unforgettable! THANKS SO MUCH ADDAM!!!”
- Jen & Grant
• Gauri Desai / David Ackerman wedding :
“DJ Addam was the DJ for our wedding on June 6th, 2009. He was asked to play music ranging from Bollywood favourites to new wave classics. He was also asked to play background music for cocktail hour and during dinner. Addam was extremely professional and courteous. He made a point of contacting me prior to the wedding and made sure he understood what type of music he would need to play. During the wedding he helped out with impromptu requests cheerfully and without complaint. Despite not being familiar with the music, his sense of timing and knowing where to start and fade out music was excellent. He went beyond requested music and was able to creatively mix in a variety of different styles that blended wonderfully and created the perfect ambience for our event.
I cannot recommend Addam highly enough. We are still getting compliments from both our American as well as Indian friends and family members about how good the music was. Our reception was a huge success in large part to Addam's skill at being able to read the crowd and play music to keep them dancing. His flexibility made him a pleasure to work with.”
- Gauri Ackerman
• Jessica Piecul / Mark Hesselscwherdt wedding :
THANK YOU for such an incredible wedding! We have heard back from at least 10 people that the music was the best music they had ever heard at a wedding. Everyone was commenting on how well you mixed the old and new songs and our dance floor was packed from before dinner ended to the end of the night! You really were awesome and played everything we asked for, kept the party moving and truly made the night perfect.
We have already recommended you to three or four couples who are engaged - I really think we won't see a better DJ - we've already been to another wedding and it was just so clear how awesome you are at what you do - you don't just play songs, you really read the crowd to see what they want. It was such a great night and you were a huge reason for that.
I could go on and on...thank you so much for everything, your professionalism during the night and how you just made it impossible for people to NOT have a good time. I hope to see you again at another wedding, because I know all our friends will want you!!! :)
Thanks so much again,
- Jess & Mark
• Jennifer Russell / Alexander Court wedding :
Addam did an incredible job at our wedding. He worked with the music we liked and just as importantly, played the room to make sure that all of our guests, from age 21 to 90, got up on the dance floor and had a great time. Addam got LOTS of compliments from our guests after the wedding. Not only about how good the music was but also on how professional he was in organizing toasts and making everyone feel comfortable. We highly recommend him - after all, he got our music just right at the wedding!
- Alex Court
