What makes you different from everyone else?
Five Star Entertainment is not your average DJ company. We specialize in facilitating weddings one way – your way. Our Online Event Portal captures every detail needed for a successful event. From beginning to end, we have every detail covered.
We also guarantee a great time. Whether we are dancing behind the DJ booth (as we often do), or engaging with guests, we know how to entertain. As most weddings can be stressful to plan, nothing prevents us from creating a high energy and fun atmosphere. That is why we consider ourselves Facilitators of Fun. Our continuous goal is creating memories that last forever.
Will you be the DJ at our wedding?
Absolutely! The person you meet with will be your main DJ. If there is an emergency and your DJ cannot perform, we will provide a DJ that fits the style and personality of the DJ you chose.
What is the cost of your services and what is included?
We have created affordable all-inclusive packages with a la carte options. We can also create a custom package to fit each client’s needs.

If you would like to see our pricing, please contact us and we can send you our pricing information.
Will you play music during guest arrival? And Cocktail Hour?
We will play your requested music from guest arrival to the very last song. All of the music details are organized through our Online Event Portal.
Can the client create playlists for every part of the wedding?
Yes. For every part of a wedding, our Online Event Portal allows our clients to create playlists on an ongoing basis.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
All of the music requests including Do-Not Play lists are organized and submitted through our Online Event Portal. We want to be aware of any songs undesirable to the clients or the guests. For us, the more musical direction the better prepared we can be.
Do you play edited or clean versions?
For weddings, we only play the clean/radio edited version of songs. We also do not play music that although may be edited, is still not appropriate for weddings.
Do you provide any lighting for dancing?
We typically bring a sound activated dance floor lighting effect.
Do you perform more than one event per day?
We limit ourselves to one event per day. As a professional DJ company, this allows us to be full of energy and properly prepared for each event.
Do you make announcements at each wedding?
We do emcee events and make all necessary announcements throughout each event. However, we do not ramble on a microphone without purpose. The majority of our emcee style includes clear and concise announcements paired with friendly personalities. Sometimes we do feel it’s necessary to engage the guests and be more open on the microphone. For example, we are typically on the dance floor encouraging guests on the microphone for the bouquet and garter toss.
Will we meet you again before the wedding?
We are happy to schedule as many consultations as necessary to make each wedding perfect. Although the majority of the planning is through our Online Event Portal, we always schedule one final consultation one to two weeks before the wedding to finalize the details. This is imperative to communicate any last minute changes.
When do you arrive to set up for our wedding?
With each wedding, our arrival is at least an hour and a half before guests arrive. We may arrive earlier depending on the layout and the services we are providing. Some venues may have policies that restrict vendor set up times, so we do our best to prepare for unique circumstances. At every event, we make sure we are properly set up and our equipment is tested BEFORE guests arrive
Do you have any specific space requirements?
No. We purposely acquired professional equipment that is not too bulky to allow us to work in confined spaces.
Do you require a DJ table that will need a tablecloth?
We use our own DJ table with a modern DJ façade. Although most venues provide a table with drapery, we are self-sufficient and prefer to us our customized DJ booth.
What do you wear at weddings?
We wear all neutral colors (mostly black) so we don’t conflict with wedding colors. Our typical attire includes: black dress shoes, black slacks, black collared shirt, Grey vest and a black tie.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100. We try to keep it simple because we offer many services and our clients can easily change their package.
How long have you been a DJ and how many weddings have you done?
As the owner and main DJ at Five Star Entertainment, I (Josh Toves) have been a DJ for almost 10 years. I have also performed as a professional DJ and Emcee for almost 100 weddings just in the past 3 years.
As Emcee’s, we thrive in public environments. To continuously improve our speaking and leadership skills, Five Star Entertainment belongs to the Toastmasters International Association.
Are you insured?
Five Star Entertainment is fully insured and carries a 2 million dollar liability policy. We are happy to provide this information to any of our customers or venues that require this information.
What if something happens to you and you can’t make it to the wedding?
Despite meticulous planning and preparation, accidents do happen. If your DJ has an emergency and cannot attend, we will have a backup DJ attend the wedding. We try our best to match the same style and personality of your scheduled DJ. You will still receive the same contracted services including a main DJ & Emcee, assistant DJ along with the professionalism, personality and excellent service you expect.
Do you bring backup equipment to the wedding?
We bring backup equipment to each event we attend. We bring multiple sound boards/mixers, additional speakers and plenty of cables. In fact, the speakers we use have their own amplifiers inside and include inputs to be used in standalone mode. This is perfect not only for backup purposes, but also for a simple cocktail hour system if additional sound is needed.
What type of equipment do you use?
Our equipment is top-notch professional grade equipment. Although our speakers are loud enough for large events, they are perfect for medium size applications (100-200 people) to optimize sound quality. Our microphones are the same top quality you would expect from live performances.
For wedding ceremonies, we use a compact audio system including two lapel microphones for hand free sound amplification. These microphones are placed on the officiate and groom which can also pickup the bride as well for vows. If there are any special readings, an additional microphone and stand can be provided.
