Recommend a DJ/MC

I have everything else booked but the DJ/MC, I'm having the hardest time deciding since to me this is what makes the party.  I want an MC that will keep everyone entertained all night and a DJ that can feel out the party and people and play the right music. I also will get the uplighting so I want to make sure the company we decide on is good at it. I looked at so many websites and heard them at bridal shows but still can't decide. Please help, thank you!

    We're using Elite Sound Entertainment and they gave us the uplighting for an extra $500 I think. I'd have to look out our contract. But, they were really nice and we met with the guy who will be our DJ the day of our wedding.

    Go to WeddingWire.com and put in Dj's in your zip code.

    Then read all the reviews and decide.  It became pretty obvious to me who I wanted to meet with after that.  There are some N.J. DJ's on there that tons of great reviews and no bad ones.  That did it for me.

    I have read tons of reviews but for some reason I worry that they're "planted" reviews by family members and friends of the company. I want someone to tell me they actually used someone and loved them and everything was how they wanted. My fiance use to work for a DJ company and he said that all you see on the website and at the Bridal Show is the best they can offer and than they send however out to the event. I know I have an option to pick whom I want to actually be there but how do I know the person is good unless I've seen them perform, or know someone that has....I'm making this so difficult, sorry.

    I also relied heavily on weddingwire.com  I do not think 40 reviews could all be planted - plus that's a terrible business practice.  I will be using Colorblind, and I found them off weddingwire

    Look into DJMC from Belleville, excellent reputation of being professional, experienced, and fun. Mike, the owner, is VERY nice and easy to talk to.

    Dash of Class with Vito, I have it written in my contract for him specifically.  Also got the uplighting through them and video, reasonable.
