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.
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.
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 DJ's for their wedding.
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).
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!
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!!
Ben is a nice guy and a great DJ... he was very helpful with song selections and kept the party going all night. Every one of my guests were on the floor at one point or another, he even had my 80 something year old grandparents shaking their hips! We got many compliments on him and I would highly recommend him.
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!
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!
We had Ricky and Amanda's East Coast Wedding reception at the Belmar Fishing Club on August 20th. Ben was our DJ and he was truly amazing!!! He made the party outstanding. I truly believe in order to have a great reception that everyone talks about...is based on how good the DJ is...Ben is truly the best! He made the party exciting and played the perfect music for all ages. thank you Ben and Create Excitement!! Thank you for a perfect reception!
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!
I booked Ben for my wedding recently and was thrilled. All of my guests have been raving about how much fun they had and in particular how awesome the DJ was. From just a couple of phone calls and a short request list, Ben knew exactly what we were going for and kept it fun for the large mix of family and friends. When I saw the tremendous reviews, I figured it was either too good to be true or too expensive, but the rates were affordable and considering how he set the tone for the party, well worth it.
You were so nice and a very accommodating party DJ. Thanks so much for the wonderful job that you did on June 27th. You played every song request, and each sounded great! Our guests had so much fun! The party would have been quite dull if you weren't there to liven it up with the nice mix of music and brighten it up with the cool party lights.
Ben was extremely professional in handling and preparing for my wedding which was on June 19th at The Manor in West Orange NJ. It was an event which required him to play some songs in foreign language (Russian and Ukrainian) and he managed the music line up very, very well. Also just in general he has been in touch with me in months and weeks preceding the wedding and he listened to and played most of my music selections. Ben helped me pick some of the songs and he also did a great job with our photo montage. he met with me and my father and took the time to walk us through the musical part of the event, etc. Overall, we were just very happy with the wedding and how the event went. It was fun, and music played a big part. Any bride that wants a professional DJ that will care about her music taste will be lucky to have Ben as her DJ.
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!
Ben was awesome at helping us plan the music as well as our photo montage for our big day!
From the first time we met with him we were impressed as his professionalism, music knowledge, creativity, and willingness to help and answer any and all questions we had for him.
When the big day came, Ben was prepared with everything we had talked about, and did a fantastic job at the reception! All our guests had positive feedback as well!
We would highly recommend Ben for your DJ services and hope to use him in the future for other events we have that may require a DJ!
Ben was just awesome as our wedding MC and DJ. We are so glad we chose Create Excitement for our ceremony and reception. From the beginning Ben was professional, enthusiastic, and warm. The attention to detail that we received was so important and made us feel assured that our day would be just the way that we wanted. Ben went out of his way to make sure that he got all the music and details done right. I loved the fact that he was able to offer guidance that really reflected what we were looking for. Everyone told us they had a great time, which we have Create Excitement to thank for.
Ben was fantastic. He made our daughter's wedding so much fun. Ben brought so much energy to the dance floor. The morning of the wedding 5-14-2016, Ben texted me and said, if we need anything just call or text him. I thought that was such a great comfort knowing if we needed to change anything last minute we could reach him. The light show was awesome too! Cindy & George from Wall NJ
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.
Ben & Ginette were AWESOME!!!! We met with Ben before the wedding & were in constant contact with him via e-mail. He was always very responsive (replied within hours to an e-mail). During cocktail hour he had a suggestion for the father/daughter dance that he felt would get the crowd involved and he was spot on! That set the tone for nothing but fun & dancing the entire night. I think the only time the dance floor was empty was during dinner, when Ben played our photo montage that he did for us. It was spectacular & all the guests really enjoyed it! Post-wedding, all the guests have been commenting to us & both set of parents about how fantastic Ben was. To say he is highly recommended is an understatement! If you need a DJ - BOOK HIM!!!!!
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.
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!
For our wedding music was one of the most important things on our to do list. When meeting with Ben for the first time we knew he had captured what we were looking for in entertainment. We wanted to have our nightlife feel with a mix of our Caribbean heritage. Wedding day was amazing, music was continuously playing through the night, like we requested and everyone having such a great time. We cannot stop thanking Ben for the wonderful job he created. We definitely recommend Ben as your DJ trust us, you won't have to look anywhere else after meeting with him. Ben was a perfect fit for us.
We cannot say enough good things about Ben and Chris's phenomenal work at our wedding (and throughout the entire planning process!). Leading up to the wedding Ben was so on top of his communication with us, and we never had to reach out to him or remind him to do anything-- he was always 3 steps ahead. We felt that he did such an amazing job at the reception, which was reinforced by all the compliments we have been receiving from our guests since. He did a fabulous job of keeping the night going and knowing exactly what people needed and when. He listened to every single request we had and helped turn our dream wedding into a reality. We cannot thank Ben enough and would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a wonderful DJ!
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.
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!
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!

Ben was a true professional from start to finish. His prep work was impeccable and his attention to detail superb. Music is his passion and it clearly shows in his work. He was always available to us and even went out of his way to let us preview the BRILLIANT slide show he came up with!! Your wedding is a celebration and having the right DJ cannot be overlooked and that's where Ben and his team step up. Music is often the soundtrack to our lives and Ben certainly understands and captures this perfectly. I have no reservation in saying without question to select this DJ company if you want a memorable and amazing event. Ben and his staff show a true and heartfelt caring for their clients. Thanks for a great night Ben you exceeded our expectations!!
This is the second time we had Ben as our DJ, two years ago and then on 8/27/2011 during Hurricane Irene. Not only was he always available, he doublechecked every small detail to ensure our daughter's wedding was perfect. His selection of music was infinite, our daughter and son-in-law's music interests ranged from Frank Sinatra to heavy metal. The ease of which you can select your music online was stress-free. The first dance song was unusual, and Ben found many different versions for them to choose from. Everyone danced the entire night and forgot about Hurricane Irene, after the last song our guests were still wanting more music. Ben's professionalism throughout the entire night was evident. He provided music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. It was amazing...Who needs a full band when you have Ben from Create Excitement!
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!!
Ben was SO amazing for us as a DJ. From the moment we brought him on for the wedding, he was always there with helpful tips, ideas and a listening ear! He didn't stop at music. Any time we had a question about wedding related items, we were able to ask him, and he had great advice. I would not have wanted anyone else to get the party started for our wedding. Thank you Ben for getting literally EVERYONE on the dance floor dancing the WHOLE night!!!
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!!!
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!
Ben is the absolute best! It was so easy to pick the music we wanted, and the worksheet helped plan the ceremony, reception and cocktail hour. Everyone raved about the DJ!
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 have reviewed Create Excitement in the past from the stand point of having had the pleasure of working with them at mutual events. My review stated: They all are true professionals that really know how to get your party going! Not only Create Excitement.. but indeed Creative Excitement!!
They make sure that you know they really care about you and your event from meeting with you in person, to personal phone calls answering any questions that may arise, to their interactive website for planning and customizing your package to be exactly what YOU want it to be.
I have since hired them personally for our daughter’s wedding. Both Ginette & Ben were there to run the show. My guests and I could not have been more impressed! They truly are a wonderful team! Their attention to detail is amazing. Our daughter and her husband to be were able to go online to choose songs to completely customize how their reception would go. Ben & Ginette have a wonderful form to fill out that helps you know the order of things that typically happen and yet are totally open to your own creative ideas as well. Nothing will be overlooked or forgotten! Their selection of music is vast to say the least and if they don't have a song you want (highly doubtful) they will make sure to get it for you! I could go on and on about the lighting they brought.. Ben's interaction with the guests on the dance floor, etc. etc.
If you want the best, most reliable & enjoyable party experience you can have.. these are the people to hire!
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 great to work with. We got married at the shore, but live about 1 1/2 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 up lights) was beautiful as well.
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.
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!"
Amazing company! Ben the owner is an amazing person, full of energy and very professional. Their online planning web site 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!
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.
Krista & Mike had their Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail Hour and Reception at the Crystal Springs Resort. Here is what they wrote:
"Book Create Excitement Today!!
If you are reading this—No need to search elsewhere for your DJ. Ben was the best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. He was an absolute joy to work with and clearly has an innate passion and talent for it! He listened to everything we had envisioned for our wedding and made it happen! He made our day not just a wedding but a special experience for our guests. From the ceremony to the last song at our reception every song was perfect. He played every song we asked for, understood what genres of music we liked, and built upon every aspect with his expertise to make it memorable. He kept the cost VERY reasonable as we even asked him to travel over an hour. His lighting and sound equipment was impeccable, all of our guests were very impressed by the quality and professionalism of his services. You know the DJ is doing an amazing job when the dance floor is packed the entire night! A huge “Thank You” to Ben and his team for making our day exactly what we wished for. Also-ask him about the Photobooth option-it was such a hit with our friends and family!
Stop stressing now—and book him today!"
Ben was amazing! My now husband and I just got married this past Saturday (10/15/16) and I could not be happier with it. The music and vibe was amazing. He was extremely attentive throughout the whole process and you could tell this is what he loves to do. He has an online planner that you can request songs and make a playlist. It was great! I would definitely recommend him for your special day!!!

Thank you for a great party- honestly, everyone said is was one of the most fun parties they've ever attended!
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!!
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
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
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! Our wedding was on March 14, 2014. 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!
