We Couldn’t be More Pleased
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).

Best Wedding DJ I’ve Every Heard!
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.

Very Pleasant Experience Working with Ben
Create Excitement was fantastic, from the very first meeting with Ben to the end of the wedding reception, it was a very pleasant experience. Ben spent quite a bit of time with us prior to signing the contract. Other vendors spent about 15 mins. This was my first inclination that Ben was the one for us. Choosing music was so easy! My 11-year-old nephew helped me select the music online so I wasn’t totally in the 70’s! The music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception went off without a hitch. Everyone raved about the DJ! Highly, highly recommend!

Great to Work With
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.

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 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!”

Everyone danced all night
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!

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!

Reliable and Enjoyable – Always
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!

Memorable and Amazing Event
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!!

Everything was perfect!
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!
Courtney from Wedding Wire
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!!!!!

Gave us exactly what we wanted
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!

The Most Wonderful Experience!
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!
Colleen from Wedding Wire
On top of everything
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!

Most Professional Vendor I’ve Worked With
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.

Music was perfect!
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.

Dancing all night!
We had a backyard wedding with about 200 guests. Ben’s services had everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. Thanks, Ben!

Music continuously playing
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.

Great job with photos and music
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.

Professional and Creative
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!
Maegen from WeddingWire
We used Create Excitement for our wedding on May 9, 2009. 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.
