"Dave was one of the main reasons our wedding was such a success! We put "DJ Choice" for about every song, and it was the best decision we could have made! He had every guest dancing, up until the last song. The selection was superb, and he was such a professional. Couldn't have asked for a better DJ!!"

"Connor and I want to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding last Saturday at Point Lookout!! Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had dancing and how much they loved all the music being played! Connor and I had a great time dancing, maybe even too much fun dancing! :) It was a long reception to keep everyone on the dance floor but you did it seamlessly. Thanks again for helping make our wedding day so memorable!!!"

"Hi Dave. I just wanted to reach out and thank you so much for being the DJ at our wedding. Jeff and I had so many people coming up to us throughout the night and the next day saying that you were great!

""Joe kept the party going at our October 2016 Hardy Farm wedding. We had such a blast dancing on our wedding night, thanks to Joe. I mostly communicated with Dave leading up to the event and he was always very helpful and responsive. Joe and I checked in closer to the wedding day. He was very flexible, paid attention to details and was able to accommodate requests throughout the night. Thanks Joe!""

"I just wanted to take a minute and say how awesome Marcel was. He was absolutely right when he told us not to worry. Of course I did anyway because I'm a women. Anyway he was very professional and great to work with and played all the greats. We had smells like teen spirit playing when he was announcing the bridal party into the reception and I think it really got our guests pumped up!!!! I would definitely recommend you guys to anyone I know getting married and looking for a dj. Thank you again!!!!"

"Dave was the DJ at our wedding on October 1st and he was incredible. He is very accommodating with requests and he truly knows how to get a crowd going. My husband and I met with him prior to our wedding and I could not believe how knowledgeable he was. We were super confident that he would be amazing at our wedding and we were correct. Thank you very much, Dave, for making our celebration THAT much better with your energy. And thank you for passing the microphone to a few our our guests to sing...especially my 11 year old nephew! You are THE BEST."

"I would like to share with you that we were extremely pleased with Bob's performance at my daughter's wedding this past weekend! I honestly can't say enough good things about him. It is very visible that he enjoys what he does. He had 98% of our guest dancing the whole time that the reception was going on. The dance floor was entirely full. I will definitely be giving your company referrals and will be contacting you again as for I have another daughter that will be having a wedding in the future!"

"I wanted to make sure I had the chance to shoot you guys a note to say thank you for all the work that went into last weekend. You guys are running a first class operation up there and completely nailed everything we asked for and more. Dave - thanks for being understanding about the late payment. Joe- You killed it, thank you for making sure everyone had an awesome time. The details of the wedding and the real-time changes we asked for couldn't have gone any smoother. DJ's are a huge part of a wedding reception and I definitely feel like we lucked out with you guys. Good luck with the rest of the wedding season. Thanks again!"

"We had Paul Leclair as our wedding DJ! He was absolutely AMAZING. He helped us stay on track- worked with us and continued to keep us updated and informed us/asked if we wanted to change anything. He kept the party going ALL night! We had 175 guests and almost EVERYONE was dancing! (Even my guest on crutches tried dancing-aha) We had multiple people come up to us stating how great our DJ was. He kept everything lively and most importantly FUN! We are so happy we had him to be with us during our special day! Thank you so much Paul you are truly the best DJ ever! :) "

Alex & Kaitlin
"Joe was very professional, and not at all cheesy (which was a trait we had seen in numerous DJs at other weddings we had been to, and something we wanted to avoid). He was also very accommodating of following our "do not play" list, and trying to fit in the many many song requests both we had as the wedding couple, and that our guests had submitted. He seemed to be able to read the crowd well, and make sure to play songs that would keep both the 20somethings and 50+ crowd on the dance floor. He also was accommodating in mixing both a slow and fast song for the father/daughter dance, and in splicing a techno song for our bride/groom entry. Overall, we would recommend Dionne Entertainment to anyone looking for a wedding DJ in the Portland area!!"

"Paul Leclair was the DJ for our September wedding this year, and I would recommend him to anyone! He was amazing, from the time that we first met with him to begin going over song choices to the very last song he played at our wedding reception. He was incredibly professional and genuinely excited about his job both times that we met with him prior to the wedding day. His confidence and attention to detail made us feel relaxed and comfortable about our big day. Even when I was being indecisive and making changes to song choices the day before the wedding, he didn’t mind at all! On the day of the wedding, he DJ’d our ceremony as well as the reception. He knew exactly how to pump up the guests before the bridal party introductions and kept the energy going the whole night. His original ideas for the bouquet toss and garter toss were the talk of the night and had everyone laughing. Several of the guests came up to us that night to say that it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time – I believe this was mostly due to Paul. He is absolutely fantastic, and anyone who chooses him for their DJ will not be disappointed!!"

"When we were deciding on our wedding date, there were two factors we were taking into consideration - is our venue available, and is Joe Dionne available to DJ! He was the DJ at our close friend's wedding, and we just loved how he was fun (without being too "look-at-me"), organized, accommodating, etc. - he knew how to read the crowd, and he is absolutely a professional. When it came to wedding DJs, we knew we wanted someone who knew what they were doing, but also would be willing to use our input for music requests, etc. as guidance. Joe was that perfect combination."

"Dave! I can't sing your praises enough. We have been to a lot of weddings lately and we know how important it is to have a good DJ. Dave you blew us all out of the water. Looking back at all the pictures was such a great experience. It really shows us how good you are at your job. My family and friends danced the whole night and people that we've never seen dance before (and there were a lot) were out there dancing. People came to us afterwards and said it was one of the best weddings and best parties they've ever been too. We had the best time. Thank you for being so good at what you do and for making our night one to remember with full of laughs and epic dance moves. Dave I will recommend you again and again. You're the best!"

"Our wedding was on August 6th in Ogunquit, a very popular tourist area with family as far as Denver, Minnesota, Maryland, and as close as right in Ogunquit! He was able to get everyone on the dance floor! We had such a blast and the music was just what we wanted. We actually broke the dance floor... Twice!! Who would have known we could fit 100 people on the floor and move nonstop. Bob was thoughtful, played what we wanted, played security guard so we could eat at our own wedding. He was truly the best! We would recommend him with 100 stars if we could. "

"Larry, sorry for the delay in my response! Tim and I went up north and stay at our camp for a while after the wedding. It was a much needed break after all the madness! But, now we are home and happy to be returning to "normal" life again. We want to thank you so very much for your flexibility, professionalism and the fantastic job that you did! It was hot and so many things had gone wrong or changed at the last minute. But the most important part of all that is after 9 years of dating, Tim and I are finally married!!! You helped make all of that happen for us and you were truly a breath of fresh air! The first time we spoke on the phone I new we were in the best of hands! We can not thank you enough! I also plan on posting a review on your website.....Thank you again!"

"I am overwhelmed with how amazing Dave Dionne did at our wedding!! Upon first meeting him, and checking out his accomplishments, I almost thought he was kidding with how much he has done. He absolutely was not! I was semi-late to the ceremony, but I heard he handled the processional very well with keeping the song going! He played every single song I requested and kept our guests dancing all night long! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for entertainment for any event! Amazing!!"

"Dave was flexible in his availability and we actually hired him for a total of 10.5 hours for our ceremony and reception. He was great to interact with and made sure that all of our planning went smoothly and accommodated to all of our requests. In no small part he helped make our wedding into a great event. One quality that ranked high in importance for me was the DJ's voice. I wanted a DJ with good voice inflection and tone and Dave delivered on this front with his many years as a radio show host. Would definitely give him an A+ all around and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a fantastic DJ for their wedding!"

"I just wanted to say thank you for providing us with everything we were looking for in a DJ! I had forgotten to get back to you on a couple things, and you were diligent enough to get back to me instead of making your own decision (which would've been just as great). I think our introduction song of Shipping Up To Boston was so great! A great moment I'll always remember. I heard many comments from some grandparents and older folks that they enjoyed hearing music they recognized. You really took everything into account! I wanted to thank you as you were packing up but I never made it over. I believe my Mom was able to thank you in person. I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone getting married or in need of a DJ!!"

Being in 2 different states, we talked on the phone several times to go over our playlist and different options. The night of our wedding was absolutely perfect, from the announcements, to speeches, to introductions! Dave played exactly what we asked for- a mix of new and old! The dance floor was "jumping" all night! The sound, lights, and music were perfect! We have been receiving feedback from our guests since our wedding day two weeks ago! I would highly suggest Dave to any future bride/groom looking for a DJ in the Maine area! Good voice, music, and affordable price! Thank you Dave! !"
