Ben and the Create Excitement team recently did my wedding at the Hamilton Manor. With all the madness that goes with your wedding day it was comforting to know that Ben was on top of every detail. He made himself extremely available throughout the entire process and was very responsive to any questions we had.
My family used to own a DJ company so there were several former DJs in the room who can be overly critical of other DJs. They all made it a point to come mention to me that they were very impressed with Ben and his team.
It was a great evening that wouldn’t have been possible without the excellent services of Create Excitement!
Do you want a DJ who can and will make your wedding all that you have dreamed? Then, Create Excitement Entertainment is who you are looking for. From the moment I met Ben, I felt at ease. He worked hard to get to know us and ensure that the wedding was exactly what we wanted. His website is amazing and allows you to pick songs you want played and songs you don’t want played. This was key for me as I have very specific tastes. Plus, my mom was worried a bit about the music choices, and Ben went out of his way to make a CD for her to get a glimpse of what the wedding music would be like!
Throughout the reception, Ben checked in with Bryan and I several times to make sure we were enjoying the music and tone of the evening. We DEFINITELY were, as were our guests. Everyone is raving about Ben and Create Excitement. He started the night off playing the high energy song, SHOUT, before we even did our first dance. Everyone was on the dance floor immediately and it never stopped. The dance floor was packed all night!!
Thank you so much Ben and Joe! The night was a dream!
I used DJ Anthony for a Birthday Party and he was very responsive to the guests and they all loved the music and graciousness of the DJ!
Create Excitement recently DJ'ed our wedding, and we couldn't be more pleased with our experience! Our initial meetings with Ben were informative, helpful and focused on our specific needs. Throughout our planning, Ben was always organized, professional, and most importantly, accessible. He always listened to our requests and offered suggestions that he thought might work for us. Their online planning site made it easy to listen to/select music and make payments. Adam, who was the DJ at our wedding was also great to work with! He too was professional, thoroughly prepared and remained flexible (even when we made a couple of changes mid-reception).
From my first phone conversation with Ben, I knew he would be the perfect addition to our wedding ensemble. He was not only kind and attentive, but extremely professional, helpful, and responsive. Being an out-of-state bride, this was extremely important to me and took generous amounts of stress out of our planning. His pricing is to beat, and even better, he was never pushy trying to "sell" us like other DJs that I had contacted. He is honest and genuinely cared about our wedding. It was so fun and easy being able to select our music online and document the way we wanted our wedding to progress. We couldn't have been happier come the night of the wedding. The setup was flawless, the music was quality, and Ben brought such a joyous and personal touch that everyone complimented on. He was eager to take requests, and we danced ALL night long! We had a smaller wedding of 50 people, and one of my fears was that the dance floor would be empty- not a chance with Ben. I would recommend him over and over, as would our guests who raved about him. Thank you for adding to the perfection of our night- you're the best!
Adam and I got married on May 21st at the Mill in Spring Lake. Ben provided the music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Everything was perfect. I am sure this has to do with all of the time and attention Ben put into making sure that everything was just how we wanted it to be. I was a bit worried at first because our wedding was in the daytime that people would not want to dance as much, but Ben made sure that everyone was out there for pretty much the entire reception. Thanks to Ben and the Create Excitement team for making our day better than I could have expected!
Ben was fantastic to work with. He went above and beyond to make this day smooth and memorable. Everyone had a great time! He was very easy to work with, super organized and tried to find solutions for every concern we had. I would highly recommend Ben!
We had a great time on Saturday! DJ Joe did a wonderful job playing all of our requested music. He was very attentive to what we wanted from the day and even trekked all the way to our sweetheart table across the room to confirm our wishes. All in all, we were very happy with how our day went and a big part of it was thanks to DJ Joe!
Ben really made the night for us. We were really skeptical of having a DJ at all but he really listened to us and let the guests pick songs they wanted.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ben for our wedding this past October. He spent quality time discussing or likes and dislikes with music, line dancing, etc. The outcome of that time was wonderful! After the introductions, Ben played "shout" which had everyone up out of there seats and on the dance floor. He played a wide variety of music that kept the party alive and going. To this day we still get compliments on our DJ and how wonderful the experience was.
Amazing company! Ben the owner is an amazing person, full of energy and very professional. Their online planning website is awesome, and they still follow up either in person or by telephone conversation. They work around your schedule. Music selection was great, we had a sweet 16 and had both teens and older family members and everyone was dancing and loved the music. In my opinion 5 stars is not enough! Well worth the money!
Ben is the DJ you want for your wedding! He was simply amazing from beginning to end! He is extremely knowledgeable and patient! I just got married and I couldn't be happier with the wedding! Everyone was dancing on the dance floor the whole night! All of my family members loved him and boy can he dance! He was teaching me how to do the wobble on the dance floor! And the price was perfect! He went above and beyond for our wedding! I'm so so happy!!
We had such a great experience with Create Excitement! My husband and I got married in NJ but are the furthest thing from "Jersey Shore" as possible. We knew we needed a DJ who got our desire to have great dance music without it verging on being a club. We discussed our event with Ben initially and Adam was our actual DJ the day of the event. Ben was extremely helpful throughout our planning process and answered any questions we had as they came up. Adam was fantastic. We used the company for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and weren't disappointed with any of it. The volume level was perfect throughout (which could have been an issue with outside sound and another wedding indoors). His music choices included anything we requested and options that melded perfectly with the crowd--the dance floor was NEVER empty (always a good sign!). He also checked in with us (and our bridal party) every so often to see if the volume was alright and if there were any songs we wanted to hear. He was a superstar. We highly recommend Create Excitement!
To All at Create Excitement,
Thank you so much for doing an awesome job at our wedding. Jay kept people up on the dance floor all night and everyone had a brilliant time. He played all the songs that we had requested and interpreted our music taste really well. I chose Create Excitement because I was planning the wedding from California and their website was very user friendly and also up front with all the costs. They were worth every penny! I will definitely be recommending Create Excitement to my Jersey family in the future. Thank You!
Thank you so much to you and Quinn for the amazing job you guys did that night. We still have people calling us this morning talking about how great of a dance party it was and how the music part of the night was absolutely perfect. The transitions and timing of the reception could not have gone any better. I’m very excited to see the videos and photographs from the team we hired because I was able to step back a few moments and see the entire dance floor was packed (even a few times people needed to dance off the floor). Again, from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for all the hard work you put into preparing for that night and I hope we get to work with each other in the future!
Best wedding DJ I've ever heard…and it was for my wedding! Ben and his team are super good. The wife and I received a ton of compliments about the music and mood. Quite a few people said to me "A lot of weddings I've been to are usually pretty boring but your guys' wedding was so much fun". I attribute a lot of this to the awesomeness of the DJ.
Music was great - they played exactly what we asked for and really set a great tone for the night. They were extremely nice people from the first time we spoke to them until even after the wedding. Very easy to work with and you could really sense the passion they have.
I don't write a lot of reviews, but they definitely deserve the praise and you'll be lucky to have them at your wedding.
Carolyn and Kameron had their Wedding at the Grand Victorian on Ocean Avenue in Spring Lake, NJ. Here is what they had to say:

Ben ( create excitement Dj) made my sweet 16 so much fun! from planning for the event, up to the very day of the party, he was very good to work with! He got all my friends up and dancing; everyone had a blast! Ben made sure he had everything right and kept in contact with us. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having fun! He helped to make my party a very memorable event!
Meryl R., Belmar, NJ
Ben was our DJ for our wedding on May 5th and he was absolutely amazing! I think choosing the right DJ is the MOST important decision when planning a wedding because they are the LIFE of the party. Ben is that DJ. He went above and beyond what we asked. Coming from Europe, there were certain games that I wanted to incorporate into the wedding, and although Ben never has heard of them, he looked at the YouTube video I sent, listened to my explanation, and found the perfect music and lead it wonderfully as if he knew all along. Not once did he make me feel like I was a burden for these additions. In fact, his response was that he enjoyed learning new games and ways to have fun. He is a DJ who lives for his job and, as a result, it doesn't seem like a job for him. Our wedding was a small one of only 40 guests but Ben still treated us like a million bucks. He was able to get everyone on the dance floor and each person raved what a good time they had and how much they liked our DJ. He even got people who would never dance (like the best man) to participate! Not to mention the Online Event Planner provided was also extremely helpful, especially to us who rarely go out. However, that doesn’t mean you are on your own because any question or concern I had, Ben answered quickly and efficiently. At one point when we were completely overwhelmed with getting everything ready for the wedding, I emailed Ben about not knowing what to do about a Limbo stick (because we wanted to have Limbo at our wedding). However, Ben did not ignore or sympathize. Instead, he took charge. He simply said not to worry about it and that he will take good care of us, and he truly did! With Ben there is NO NEED TO WORRY about anything party related. Just get the photographer, the venue, and decorate as you need because Ben does the important stuff for you! We would recommend Ben for anyone and will use him again for any future events we might have planned. Thank you so much!
I highly recommend the exceptionally professional CREATE EXCITEMENT organization to my discerning Wedding and Special Event Clients! Please do not hesitate, for one moment, to hire this outstanding company! Sincerely, Flutist Michele, Bridal Music, Jersey Shore
My groom and I knew that Create Excitement was the company for us after meeting Ben. He was funny, understanding, knowledgeable, and just all around a nice guy. Their prices were reasonable, and they literally were willing to do whatever we wanted on the wedding day. We ended up with Adam as our DJ and he was perfect. He asked a lot of questions to make sure he got everything just right. I was worried about the large age range of our guests and keeping people dancing despite the fact that I hate organized dances. Adam didn't need to resort to the Cha Cha slide or anything like that once. He got everyone up and partying. Our dance floor was packed the entire night. I wish he had played a few more slow songs, but I was having so much fun that I didn't even notice at the time. Adam stuck to all of my "do not play" songs and was always sure to double check with me if he was unsure of something. The music sounded great and the lights were a nice addition as well. I am so happy that we went with Create Excitement. I would recommend them highly to anyone.
As soon as my husband and I met Ben, we knew that our wedding music would be phenomenal. There are so many DJ services available, but several things set Ben and Create Excitement apart. First, he is so flexible and easy to communicate with, which is so important while planning a wedding. He is also the most professional vendor I've worked with. The package we chose was reasonable, and we got more than our money's worth. But most importantly, Ben worked SO hard with us to make sure our music was perfect for our wedding. My husband and I are music fanatics and wanted to incorporate some offbeat music into our wedding, which Ben did seamlessly. From the ceremony music to the last song at the reception, the music was absolutely perfect. Our guests really enjoyed the music- they danced all day! My husband and I wanted to have a big party to celebrate our marriage- Ben was one of the reasons that we were able to do it so successfully. He is amazing.
Just thought I would let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our party thanks to Jay's services as our DJ. The sound system was outstanding and the computerized program made it possible to hear whatever we requested on the spot. Hope we will be able to meet you someday. Please let Jay know that we appreciated his contribution to making our New Year come in with a bang!
Kelly & Dominick had their Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception at the Crystal Springs Resort. Here is what they wrote:
"We knew when planning our wedding that the DJ would be one of the most important aspects of the wedding night and what an excellent choice we made in hiring Ben and Create Excitement! Ben was so responsive, really took his time to get to know us and was in constant contact with us during the entire planning process. His suggestions were so helpful and really appreciated! He understood exactly what we needed from our DJ. From the ceremony, to cocktail hour and throughout the entire reception, Ben captured our style of music perfectly and was such a great DJ and MC. He had the dance floor filled all night long! The only time anyone sat was to catch their breath for a minute and then they were back out on the floor! His professionalism, enthusiasm, attention to detail, and knowledge made our wedding a huge success! We could not have wished for a better experience and cannot thank him enough for making our night so memorable! Our guests have not stopped talking about how great the music was! We highly recommend Ben, Ginette and the entire staff at Create Excitement!...Kelly & Dominick"
Perona Farms Wedding DJ Review:
Sara writes: "From the moment that we met with Ben my fiancée and I knew that we would be hiring Create Excitement for our wedding. He was so professional and passionate about his work and made us even more excited about our wedding. The online tools that he provided made it very fun and easy to plan out our reception and all the music styles that we wanted to incorporate. Although Ben was not available for our wedding, DJ Adam stepped in and completely exceeded our expectations. He got us right away and was so thorough about every detail. We received so many compliments about the music and everyone was dancing the night away. I will definitely use their services again for future events and encourage any bride to meet with Ben and Adam when looking for DJs for their wedding."
Wedding Reception at Perona Farms, Andover Sparta Rd, Andover, NJ
We used Ben for our wedding in September and we can't thank him enough for making our day so memorable. The music was absolutely perfect, and we received multiple compliments throughout the night and after the wedding about how great the music was. Ben knew exactly how to get people out on the dance floor and we cannot express how wonderful it was in working with him up to the day of the event and on the actual evening. He is a true professional in every sense of the word and respected our wishes for no flashy lights, fog machines, etc. The "Dancing Under the Stars" lights made the room absolutely magical and even the catering staff was in awe. Ben really knows how to "Create Excitement!"
My wife and I used Create Excitement for our wedding on June 10th. We were assigned DJ Adam. Adam and I spoke once a few days prior to the event and I believe that my wife spoke to him about three times. I was apprehensive because I had never seen his work and all too often you attend an event and the music is too loud for the room and the DJ never turns it down enough to speak to your table mates during dinner and you end never being able to have any type of a conversation. I WAS SO HAPPY WITH ADAM! I told him I wanted soft music during dinner and that is what we got. Excellent. It made the event and then in-between courses he pumped it up and got people out on the floor and as the next course was served he toned it down and then when that was over he pumped it up. All of my guests danced and ate and laughed and had a great time. I can't tell you how many emails we have received telling us what a great time everyone had. Do yourself a favor and request Adam. Tell him exactly what you want and that is exactly what you will get. If it isn't it's because you didn't tell him what you wanted. Great job Adam thank from the both of us!
From the initial communication to the last song at our wedding, we had the most wonderful experience working with Create Excitement! Throughout the whole process, Ben and his wife Ginette were so helpful, responsive, professional and friendly. When I met them both in person at our wedding, they were exactly as I imagined they would be. They left me completely at ease, which to me, is an incredibly important quality in a wedding vendor. Ben was happy to accommodate our requests and knew exactly the right songs to get - and keep! - our guests on the dance floor! Ben & Ginette, we can't thank you enough for being such a big part of our wedding day!
They were more thorough than I ever could have been picking my music! Their website is AMAZING ~ totally awesome online tool for wedding planning. Reasonable prices and great communication!
Thank you, Ben and Connor, for making Kendall and Tim's Engagement Party the event of the summer in Sea Girt. From the moment the music started, all of my guests were asking about the DJ! No one sat down the rest of the night! That makes for a magnificent party! Thank you so much!
We can’t thank you enough for making our day so perfect. You went above and beyond! Especially helping us practice our special dance. And we got several comments from guests about how great it was when you played the movie songs as the clue to which table got to go eat next! You were the best! And we will definitely recommend you to everyone we know. Thank you so very much.
Ben was great to work with. We got married at the shore but live about 1 ½ hours away. I have a crazy work schedule and we did all of our communications thru email or phone. We were the worst of clients, late in filling out forms and we didn't provide a music list until the week before the wedding. He did a great job in selecting great songs for the reception. The ONLY song my husband was adamant about using was a little obscure, but Ben found it on a "Rare Hits of the 80's" collection. His lighting package (starlit ceiling and uplights) was beautiful as well.
Ben did an amazing job DJ'ing and MC'ing our wedding reception! He was very professional through the entire process and had many great ideas to help make our day exciting and fun. He was very accommodating, traveling to two locations for the ceremony and reception, providing uplighting and having a second person on hand.
Ben did a great job ensuring everyone was having a great time and did a great job of getting a very small group of people up and dancing!
Thank you Ben, for everything!!
We made an excellent choice by booking Ben and Create Excitement for our wedding. When planning a wedding it's important to think about the experience of planning the wedding as well as the actual wedding. As far as the actual wedding - it was awesome! Ben did a great job getting everyone on the dance floor from the beginning. He was a great MC as well and we didn't worry at all throughout the reception about when things were supposed to happen - it was handled. We went with the photo booth option, which was a win too. As far as the planning process went - Ben was super responsive and spent a lot of time with us to make sure he got our vision just right. He is personable and professional and customer-service oriented. We would highly recommend.
Gabe and I wanted to say "thank you" for a wonderful evening of dancing. It was truly a PARTY! We thought the music was perfect and so did our guests. So many people have said it was the best wedding they've ever attended. We couldn't even get traditional table photos because the tables were always empty, while the dance floor was full. It was perfect! We had a blast and will recommend you to all of our friends and family.
Ben and the entire Create Excitement team were incredible to work with. They were extremely organized and proactive in working with us to create the right set list and coordinating the flow of the evening with the event staff. They were also extremely flexible, and accommodated a few very last-minute requests from my wife and I. During the reception, Ben and Chris kept the dance floor packed all night, with a perfect mix of older crowd favorites and the latest hits. We cannot recommend Create Excitement strongly enough and hope to work with them again at future events.

Ben & Ginette,
Thanks for sending Lou for my son's College Graduation Party...He was great! It felt like the guests didn't want to leave.
Have a pleasant Memorial Day.
We celebrated our son's First Communion with Ben and Create Excitement. Ben kept the kids so entertained for the entire party, they were devastated they had to leave.
The adults had a blast watching Ben and his interactions with the guests of all ages.
Ben and Create Excitement will be my first and last call next time we have a party. His services are 2nd to none. I highly recommend Create Excitement!
We used Create Excitement for our annual office holiday party. After several years of hiring disappointing DJ entertainment, we were thrilled to finally find one everyone loved. They were EXTREMELY professional and utilized a state-of-the-art website that enabled us to pick a "play list" (and even a "do NOT playlist") to ensure that they played exactly the kind of music you wanted to hear. Plus, their lighting, visual displays, and karaoke system were absolutely top notch! Plus, after making several calls to other DJs in central NJ, their pricing was extremely competitive. Would hire again without hesitation!!
I can't say enough about Create Excitement. Ben Domena is a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond to make sure you have a successful event. Create Excitement is extremely professional, and they sure know how to get a crowd moving. I highly recommend CE for all of your party needs. They are truly the BEST!
Thank you for making my daughter’s engagement party the event of the summer! The music never stopped, and no one sat down the entire night! Great mix of music for every generation! Perfect night!!
For our wedding reception on September 17, we worked with Ben of Create Excitement. Ben was great to work with in the planning phase and he did an excellent job as our DJ during the event. Our guests had a lot of fun dancing because Ben was able to set the tempo of the evening really well.
In the planning phase, Ben was highly responsive. He worked with us to select music for our reception and suggested songs to play at special moments. He reviewed our song choices and made suggestions based on his experience. Ben freely shared his recommendations and was always open to searching for and listening to all of the songs that we suggested as possible plays. Closer to the event, we had a few phone conferences with Ben to iron out all of the final details and that really helped settle some of the pre-wedding stress.
Ben also provided us with uplighting for our reception. He provided us with options and sent us example videos so that we could see how the lighting would look in a room. The lighting for our reception was so beautiful, looks great in pictures and beautifully set the mood that we were seeking.
Ben’s interaction with our guests at the reception was always professional and, as per our request, he didn’t create a show, rather, he let the musical selections motivate the guests. In the occasions where Ben engaged our guests, he always did so in a sophisticated way, never overly effusive or tacky.
The prices for Create Excitement are easily accessible on the website. This made it easy for us to determine which of the many available services fit within our budget. There were never any surprises or fee upcharge for any of the elements that we selected. This made our experience with Ben and Create Excitement even more positive. We would definitely recommend Ben and Create Excitement to our friends and family.
We used Create Excitement for our wedding. We had several special requests and the DJ delivered on every one. Our First dance song was At-Last / Sung by my niece Amanda Thompson, the DJ worked with us to make that an unforgettable performance. He also had an awesome mix of songs that kept the dance floor filled during the entire reception. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone is still talking about how the DJ always played the right songs at the right time! The DJ was very professional. He always kept our guests involved and was always ready for anything. We especially liked the way they handled our Anniversary Dance, my wife’s grandparents were the last couple standing after they just celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! They also did an incredible job with our photo montage and their website was a huge help. I would recommend Create Excitement to anyone.
DJ Adam was awesome. He played exactly what we asked for on the playlist. My daughter was so happy! When it came to the candle ceremony he played the music track as I asked because there were certain parts of the song that were meaningful to my daughter. I would highly recommend Create Excitement to anyone planning a party. I would use them again in a heartbeat!
Seelvana P., Long Branch, NJ
My husband and I absolutely loved working with Ben at Create Excitement! I was having a hard time trying to choose songs for the ceremony and Ben was able to set up an appointment for us to come down to the office and help us work out the kinks. Ben has such a huge personality and you can tell he loves every minute of what he does. After our appointment, I felt much better about the ceremony music and couldn't wait for our reception! On our wedding day we couldn't have asked for more. Everything ran smoothly, and people were out on the dance floor. Our experience with Ben was absolutely great and we would recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ for their event!

When I was in college I bartended at a private club that hosted a number of weddings. The common thread among all of them was that a great entertainer helps make a great wedding. Ben proved that again to me the night of our wedding. He is fun, energetic, and hardworking, and he really puts in the effort to work with you to learn about your likes and dislikes so that everything goes smoothly the day of the wedding. Your DJ is the one who really drives the entire night's events, and there is so much that goes into it which I never fully realized before. It is so much more than just the right music - it is having the right person to coordinate it all, and who can read the guests and tailor the event to maximize their enjoyment as it happens. I initially called Create Excitement because of the great reviews, which I now know are hard earned and fully justified.
Just wanted to send you a BIG thank you!!!! Everyone had a great time. You did a phenomenal job. I’m sure we’ll be seeing you again. You made our day soooo special.
Ben did an excellent job with the music. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night. He created this great energy that kept the party rockin'! So great to work with and highly recommend!!!
