From the first meeting to the end of the reception, Marquis covered everything! Marquis was able to help us not only in the planning of the music but he helped us make the entire day a cohesive production! He contacted our other vendors for us and knew exactly how to add a personal touch. Just wait until he starts calling YOUR guests out on the dance floor too – BY NAME! My husband met Marquis when he did his 16th birthday party and it took me no longer than 2 seconds to decide that this was THE GUY to do our wedding. Thank you SO much Marquis for making our day so memorable and exciting!
Marcus and Karen
Thank you to Will Smith and Marquis Entertainment. Will was awesome, everyone loved the music, entertainment and interaction Will created. Well worth every penny. Our guests raved about our DJ, just wanted to pass the compliment on to Will. Thanks again! Karen and Marcus Oct 16th, 2010 wedding
We first met Marquis when he DJ’d a friend’s wedding before we were engaged. My then boyfriend got Marquis’s contact information then knowing that when our time came, our day would not be complete without him. Our guests are still raving about Marquis and his name trick. He kept the pace of our reception (and our guests!) moving all night. He has a great sense of humor and is extremely organized, something that was important to both of us as we planned our big day. We just hope that we run into him at another wedding soon! Thank you again Marquis. You truly are the best!
There is so much involved when planning a wedding. As residents of Florida, getting married in California, we knew our wedding was going to take some intricate planning. One thing that was very important to the both of us was for our wedding ceremony and reception to run smoothly from start to finish. We didn’t want it to appear that our wedding was planned from across the country and we didn’t want it to be obvious that our wedding party was all over the country, from Guam to New Jersey. We wanted the ceremony and reception to look well-thought-out, well planned and we wanted it to flow without a hitch.
We didn’t think we’d get that accomplished through our DJ, but we did.
I found Marquis Entertainment as a recommended vendor on the internet and decided to give him a call. As the bride, I knew my future groom was not too interested in partaking in the wedding planning events, however, Marquis asked me to put him on speaker phone so that he could speak to the both of us. When I told my spouse this DJ guy wanted to talk to the BOTH of us, he gave me the ultimate "stink eye," but I went ahead and put Marquis on speaker phone. Right away, Marquis had both of us laughing and talking. We were smiling and reminiscing about how we met and fell in love – it was almost like falling in love all over again. I was excited to see my future groom happy and having fun with wedding planning – and he was surprised at how much he liked Marquis. By the end of the phone call with Marquis, we knew that he would be much more than a DJ – he would be that intricate piece to our ceremony and reception that would make it flow ever so smoothly. As soon as we hung up the phone with Marquis, we knew he was the one for our wedding!
As a bride with a mother who does event planning as a career, I was super nervous that my mother was going to take over and run the entire wedding, but with the help of Marquis, everything went perfectly. No really, it was simply perfect! I couldn’t have asked for anything more perfect on my wedding day. No worries about "what happens next" or "where are we supposed to be when" – it just all happened as it was supposed to.
We received many compliments on the ceremony and reception – as well as multiple compliments on Marquis, his professionalism, how personable he was and his knack for remembering our wedding guest’s names. We would rehire Marquis in a heartbeat! We highly recommend him and his staff for any wedding event because with Marquis, you are getting more than just a DJ, you are getting peace of mind that is simply priceless.

Marquis thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. It has been a few weeks and our guests are still raving about the wedding and how much fun they all had. Thanks again for the wonderful job of keeping everything moving and everyone entertained, Steve and I had a great time and appreciate all the work you did to make our wedding a huge success.
Thank you, Stephen and Stephanie Young
It was the most amazing night of our lives! Their services made our evening a night to remember. Everyone said our wedding was outstanding, extremely fun, and memorable! It was incredible!
Marquis Entertainment did an amazing job on the day of our wedding. We had Will Smith, and just LOVED him. Marquis Entertainment doesn’t just DJ your wedding, they are pretty much your coordinator. Will did an amazing job at our wedding, and made our wedding flow perfectly. I still have people come up to me and tell me how great our Will was. We cannot thank them enough for the enthusiasm and care they put into our wedding.
David and Jenna
Marquis wasn’t just a DJ/Coordinator for us, he became our friend. We never once had any doubt in our dealings with him throughout the planning process of our wedding. He treated us like we were his dear friends, not just another "gig" or account. He made us feel like we were his only account, we truly felt taken care of. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, not a thing went wrong and we truly owe all of that to Marquis and his team. He kept our guests entertained while we were taking pictures and when we were finally ready to make our "grand entrance" he stepped up and took control of the rest of the reception. We are STILL getting rave reviews from our guests about how great Marquis was and how great of a time they had. Marquis will go above and beyond all of your expectations, he did from the moment we saw him in action at our cousins wedding and that’s when we knew we HAD to have him for ours. You wont be let down by choosing Marquis, we’ve seen most of the other DJ services in the Stockton/Lodi area at other weddings and Marquis tops all of them in every way, trust us. We just wish we could get married every weekend so we can live the day/experience all over again. Marquis, we love you, and thank YOU sir for EVERYTHING you did for us and our Wedding. We are truly indebted to you!!! – David and Jenna Crusenberry
Dave and Kathy
We interviewed others and are so thankful we made the right choice with Marquis. They came through for us in all area’s from planing to emotional support to preparation and completion. I was very satisfied and highly suggest using Marquis. Our Guest’s asked "where did you find him", "where is he from"?? Local talent we replied over and over. The timing of the music and M C introductions and information enhanced and complimented our event to perfection. Thank you Marquis and Will . you are terrific…Dave & Kathy Williams Lodi
Nick and Samantha
Marquis was a GREAT DJ/MC. He memorized all of our guests names and basically knew they were either from the groom side or the bride side. He was amazing! My best friend got married 2 weeks after I did and she was saying how she wishes she would have known about him, I tried to tell her. He made our event! There were no slow parts everything was set at a great pace by Marquis! Our wedding was the best day of both of our lives and part of that goes to Marquis!!!
Darcy and family
From the first second we met Marquis at a Bridal Fair, it was "love at first sight!" We knew that Marquis was perfect for my daughter’s wedding. He made it so very fun, took care of all the timing of the events, entertained the guests and kept things moving and so very fun! Marquis and his son were the absolutely best! He is an honorary family member! It was a day we will never forget and Marquis and his son played such a big, important part and helped make it the most special, cherished day in our lives. Thank you Marquis and Marquis Jr.! We love you! Darcy Wendt and family
Great DJ, He works the room and meets people during wedding and makes guests feel comfortable. I have received many comments from my guests about how great he was!!! Loved Marquis Entertainment!!!!
Eric and Mindy
Being the oldest grandchild in my extended family and the oldest child in my immediate family I didn’t have much experience with weddings when it came time for me to walk down the aisle. I had a vision of what I wanted, and Marquis Entertainment and his wonderful staff turned my dream into a reality.
It was important to both my husband and I that our wedding and each part of our reception flowed effortlessly from one thing to the next and that our guests had a night to remember. After our initial meeting with Marquis it was clear that he and his staff would be an integral part of our day.
His wedding coordinator, Carol , is one of the most amazing women I have ever met and I highly recommend utilizing her services. She has years of experience and her attention to detail is like no other. She has the ability to take your idea, kick it up a few notches, and make it a reality. I KNOW I couldn’t have done it without her. I no longer consider her my wedding planner, but my friend! Thank you so, so much!
Will Smith was the Emcee of our reception and he too exceeded all expectations. He made sure that our wedding music was all set for our outdoor wedding (Marquis provided all equipment and set it all up), entertained our guests before we arrived at the reception, and kept everyone dancing well into the night! To this day our friends still talk about dancing at our wedding!
When you hire Marquis Entertainment, you are hiring WAY more than a just a “DJ”! You are adding to your family and assuring your piece of mind!
Guy and Wendie
Hi Marquis,We cannot thank you enough for the AMAZING job you did at our wedding! There is no way that things would have turned out as well as they did without you. You are so good at what you do and everyone can tell how much you care about your clients and their guests and how much you love your job, and that really matters. The kindness and patience you have is outstanding! Even when we kept making changes, you just kept smiling Our family and friends still talk about how they loved you guys! You were worth every penny! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
Clayton and Krista
Marquis Entertainment provided us excellent service through both their featured musical/DJ and wedding coordinator services. The staff were professional, helpful and experienced which made planning our wedding effortless and unique! With the assistance of Marquis and his staff, my husband and I were able to communicate our personal, musical style and share this with our entire wedding. Our wedding day was so memorable and portrayed the exact style, feeling and fun we had both envisioned. Meeting ahead of time with Marquis himself, provided us a time to express ourselves both individually and as a couple, to which Marquis got to know us in every capacity. He asked us questions, regarding our relationship together and explored the important, unique and specific aspects of our relationship that were important to portray at our wedding. Being a couple that loves music, my husband and I were able to create cds of songs that were special to us that Marquis played throughout the ceremony and reception at all the perfect times. Our wedding guests still talk about our musical selection, the MC and DJ and many have told us that our wedding was the most fun, unique wedding they have ever been to! Utilizing Marquis Entertainment’s weeding coordinator, the weeks leading up to and the day of the wedding were stress-free and easy. We were able to focus on each other and fully enjoy the beauty of our day. Again we were provided the time to share our vision and the effort was made to create specifically what we discussed in every way, right down to the timing and musical entrance of our wedding partying, introducing them to our wedding guests! We can’t thank you enough Marquis and staff for the wonderful day we had, we think about it all the time and will always remember the wonderful support and services we were provided to help us create or memorable day! – Clayton & Krysta Pleyte
Normally, I don’t rate vendors 5/5, most vendors aren’t perfect and there is usually something they could have done better. However, Marquis did a fantastic job and there isn’t one thing I would change at my wedding. He remembered everyone’s names, got everyone up and dancing (even grandpa) and was extremely friendly. He not only worked with us on our budget, but went above and beyond by giving us some ceremony music to listen to, even though we only used our church organ for the ceremony. My guests and parents commented on how great he was and I would recommend him to anyone that wants to find a great DJ. He’s the best!
Hector and LaJeana
Marquis did an outstanding service for us at our wedding. I had a special part in the Bridal Entrance song that I need to make my grand entrance to, and he completely saw my vision and made it happen. The guest loved him, and he made all of us feel absolutely wonderful with his professionalism and great sense of humor. He even was able to calm me and my new hubby down when a minor crisis occurred during the reception. It was a perfect beginning to a wonderful happily ever after, and I am so happy that Marquis was able to be apart of such a beautiful occasion! I would recommend Marquis 100 times over. We even want to use him for regular dance parties.
I am the mother of the bride. Our daughter’s wedding was in Sept., 09. I have to say that I didn’t know what to expect in the way of DJs., or MCing our wedding. I have to say that the "family" yet professional atmosphere Marquis Entertainment provided us was amazing! From the rehearsal to the organizing of attendants, to the dancing, the experience was magical. I would recommend this company!!!
Marquis Entertainment was one of the best decision we made for our wedding. They took care of everything, he was extremely easy to work with and he was extremely professional. To this day people still comment on how great the reception was and that they enjoyed Marquis. I would recommend Marquis Entertainment to anyone looking to have great service and a lot of fun at their event.
08/29/09 Marquis Entertainment staff was very helpful, organized and professional. Almost all of our guests commented on how great Will (our DJ) was and how much fun and entertainment he brought to the reception. I would highly recommend Marquis Entertainment to anyone for any event. They definitely helped to make our wedding a spectacular event!
Marquis Entertainment is a MUST HAVE for your special event. Months later, family and friends are still commenting on the amazing job he and his staff provided!Our guests were made very comfortable and welcomed with the personal touch added by our FANTASTIC DJ! Many thanks!!Suz from Linden
Mel and Barbara
Marquis is simply the best MC/DJ around! We mean that. He did an amazing job at our wedding. We would give him our highest recommendation. He also offers a wedding coordinator service which I would also recommend. He does it all and he does it well. Mel and Barbara Bradley
Matt and Tausha
We had Marquis Entertainment do our wedding and it was a blast! Marquis kept our wedding flowing perfect, there was no wondering what we should do next, he stayed on top of it. He was great with our guests, walking from table to table, remembering names, he definitely kept everyone entertained. The music was great he played exactly what we wanted, I would definitely recommend him to family and friends, he helped make our wedding a perfect day!-Matt and Tausha
Marquis is not only an amazing DJ he’s an amazing person. He is very professional and thorough in all aspects of the job. Before the wedding, he contacted our vendors to coordinate the schedule. He spoke with each of us to get a feel for what we wanted on our big day. We were able to sit back and enjoy our special day because Marquis took care of everything. He got to know our guests and set a happy and comfortable tone for the wedding. Our friends still remember our DJ and many of them have used Marquis for their weddings as well. We highly recommend Marquis for any event–he does it all!
Marquis is amazing! I’ve seen him in action for over 20 years now! Not just at events for myself, but I find him everywhere – because he’s been referred to so many friends and family members. He’s my first recommendation, hands down, if you want the best! I’ve never found anyone to be disappointed! He has this crazy ability to memorize faces and names – by the end of your event, it’s as if he’s known every attendee for years! And he never forgets anyone, either! He’s extremely professional, entertaining, and looks incredibly sharp in a blue suit! He’ll make your event comfortable, personal, and one of the best times you’ve ever had! (He can even get people to dance/do things you would normally never expect of them)! I would never recommend anyone else as highly as I would Marquis Entertainment! Thanks to you personally, Marquis! I appreciate you and love the fact that you’ve done nothing but impress anyone you’ve come in contact with! I enjoy watching you work and look forward to seeing you again soon!
MARQUIS is nothing short of AMAZING! From the moment we chose him for our wedding, he ingrained himself into making our reception the most spectacular event possible. My husband and I had a vision for how our reception was going to flow, and it felt like MARQUIS knew what that vision was from the start. As our DJ/MC, he entertained our guests from start to finish, and everyone applauded him for his ability to make our reception flow in an organized and timely manner. Everyone was expecting our wedding to be a bore because we refused to serve alcohol, but they all left saying that was the most fun they had at a wedding, and I attribute it to MARQUIS’s masterful entertaining skills. Our wedding took place three years ago, and we still have people talking about what a great time they had, and how AWESOME our DJ/MC was!!! And three years later, MARQUIS even remembered the names of our guests, and we had over 300 in attendance! He also saved our photo montage when the videographer’s sound system failed to work… he was clever enough to play music that matched our montage seamlessly. When it comes to parties, there is no one that comes close to MARQUIS’s professionalism, skill, personalization, and overall quality of work. To this day, we refer everyone we know who needs a DJ to MARQUIS Entertainment. Our son is turning one soon, and we already told MARQUIS he’s going to be the DJ at his wedding!!! Thanks MARQUIS for everything you have done for us!
They are energetic and interact with the wedding party which in turn energizes the wedding party…..Marque came highly recommended and I can now see why. What a fun wedding!!!

My new husband and I just got married October 10, 2010. For our wedding we chose Marquis Entertainment to DJ our wedding. Our wedding day was truly the happiest day of my life and I thank Marquis Entertainment for being professional, timely, fun and personable. Our guests had so much fun that they were calling days after the wedding, asking us who our DJ was. Marquis engaged with all of our guests and by the time the reception rolled around he could identify each one of our guest by name. My husband and I were able to enjoy each other while Marquis entertained our guest. I will be refer Marquis Entertainment to all of my friends and family. Thank you again Marquis Entertainment for making our wedding so memorable for my husband and I and our guest.
I am the father of the groom and I paid for the DJ service. When I was first told of the cost I said "No way!" I was eventually cajoled into paying what I at that point thought of as exorbitant fees. After all was said and done, Marquis did a wonderful job, and the "exorbitant" fees were not exorbitant at all! He provided music and guidance through the rehearsal, ceremony, and the reception. I would recommend him to any that asked for references! Overall, a wonderful and experience and worth the money!
There are barely words to describe how valuable Marquis is to the weddings he does! He is not simply a DJ or entertainer. He creates the timeline, runs the timeline at the ceremony and reception and DJs plus makes genuine connections with the guests, remembers everyone’s names and gets people excited! He is great at communicating with people, from the grandparents to the flower girls and wedding party. He was simply amazing at our wedding and worth every penny! We continuously get comments about what a great DJ we had. From the start of working with Marquis, I was impressed. He was extremely responsive to my calls and emails- and by the wedding day, we felt so taken care of and stress-free.
Marquis was an amazing DJ/entertainer. He made the whole event flow very smoothly. He organized our rehearsal and kept things moving on the day of. The music was great and everyone was dancing the whole time. We had so much fun and did not have to worry about anything. It was an amazing experience and we are so glad that we chose Marquis.
Marquis was fantastic! As high of a bar that he set for himself during our initial meeting I never expected him to over-deliver. He did EXACTLY that. If you want to relax and enjoy your day Marquis is the best choice ever, entertaining guests, helping put out last minute fires that come up the day of the ceremony, and overall giving the feeling that nothing can go wrong while he is there. Marquis is truly amazing, and I’m so glad we hired him for our wedding.
Will Smith was our DJ and he was amazing!! Marquis did such a wonderful job, they would email or call to see if I needed help with any song selection, we met with Will before the big day so that he could get a feel for our personality. When we met with Marquis one thing he asked was describe your wedding…We both said FUN!! Well Will met our expectations from getting on the dance floor and teaching my husband and I the electric slide to singing "Let’s stay together" for our timetable dance. His personality really made the music come to life. We had an awesome time and would recommend Marquis again! Thanks for everything Marquis and Will!!!
All around amazing! You must use Marquis Entertainment for your wedding. They will help you every step of the way. Very professional and fun. They will have everyone dancing.
Mother of The Bride
Marquis is a true professional. You can tell he has many years of experience dealing with all aspects of the business. Marquis has talent in dealing with many types of people. Everyone at the reception that came up to me (as mother of the bride), had something positive to say about Marquis. He kept the reception lively, personal and unforgettable.
Nick & Kimberly
Hiring Marquis was the best decision we made in preparation for our wedding. He and his staff removed all stress from the day and ensured that everything ran smoothly and on time.
Marquis is the best!! I was first introduced to this company at my sisters wedding and when it came time for mine I knew this was it! The level of professionalism is outstanding and the entertainment was off the chart. They really are the best!
