Wedding On October 19th 2019

Josh took the time to say hello, and goodbye and I truly appreciated that.  He was willing to do whatever we wanted the day of our wedding, and he did an amazing job. So many people have commented on how awesome he was, and so many of our friends/family were out on the dance floor.

Wedding On October 5th 2019

Our gay wedding was the first at Hotel Conneaut Lake. Josh and Danny did a fabulous great great job we can’t really find the words to describe what they did for us. Our day was absolutely beautiful and fabulous. We have so many guests telling us how great it was, they have said they have been to many weddings but nothing as beautiful and fabulous as ours, and they said they will never forget it. Josh helped plan everything and Danny was the DJ to make it that way, thank you so much from our hearts. We now know where to go for great dj music and services. Many thanks Josh and Danny.

DJ Josh was truly the best DJ. He kept our wedding reception hyped the entire night and ended with a special song that had everyone in tears. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect night. Thank You! Would 10/10 recommend!

Allyson Golenberke

Wedding On September 28th 2019

We had so many people say how great the music was and how great DJ Danny was. We honestly could've gone all night, so many people were on the dance floor until we decided to end it! Luke and I couldn't have imagined a better wedding, thank you for playing a big part in that!

Lori Pacifico

Wedding On September 28th 2019

Abigail Hodges

Wedding On September 14th 2019

Sean Kress from Lake Erie Events was a great DJ. Josh had a timeline and everything planned. It ran so smooth. He played a variety of music. Several people came up during the reception asking about him for future events. He surprised us with an ending that was actually the best moment of the night! Thank you guys so much! I would definitely recommend you to everyone!

Sylvia DeMarco-Parker

Alyssa Urbansky

Wedding On August 3rd 2019

We used Lake Erie Events DJ Josh Bennett with Sean assisting and they were ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! We booked them a year in advance after researching many DJs and are very HAPPY with our decision! Josh kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT long! We received so many compliments about them and how Josh was the best DJ ever!! From the song choices, to the uplighting, to the monogram, everything was AMAZING. Josh was very professional but yet fun at the same time. Would highly highly highly recommend Lake Erie Events!! 

Jasmine Bailey

Wedding On July 20th 2019

I highly highly highly recommend Lake Erie Events to any future couple getting married! From the start Josh was very good about communicating back and forth whenever we had a question. At the wedding he was amazing, I had guests coming up to me saying how awesome it was! The music selections were spot on and he kept the party GOING! A+++ job Josh!!

Rilee Kasbee

Wedding On July 20th 2019

Very professional and kept the party going.

Alyssa Andes

Wedding On July 6th 2019

Josh was the DJ for our wedding and did a phenomenal job! He helped us plan out all the details for the reception and directed all of the activities like the father/daughter and mother/son dance. He checked on us multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed during the reception and made sure everyone had a good time. Very professional and super friendly! We had no worries at all with Josh in charge. I highly recommend Lake Erie Events for all of your DJ needs!

Lanie Murray

Wedding On June 29th 2019

Josh was amazing to work with. He kept the energy up all night! At the end of the night, our guests wanted him to stay longer and keep the party going!

 

Tricia M McGaughey

Wedding On June 22nd 2019

Cody absolutely crushed it. Every song on his list was perfect, there was a great variety. I had a couple of guests make requests and he would literally play them within a few songs. I even had a bit of a meltdown at the very beginning and the dude handled it like a pro. Later, my mom was stressing me about time, he assured me we were right on schedule and things were going wonderfully. He kept things moving right along but at the same time taking cues from us. 11/10 would recommend. The professionalism from not only Cody, but Josh was amazing. They were so on top of things and I appreciate that they have online payment options as well as online planning forms, it just made everything so easy! Of all the vendors I dealt with for my wedding, Lake Erie Events was easily my favorite. And reasonably priced and flexible! We ended up needing Cody for an extra half hour and I felt so bad I had my checkbook on me but he said don't worry, we'll be in touch next week. Just so stress-free! I cannot say enough good things. Just book 'em! You'll be so glad you did!

Meg Hookpsick

Wedding On June 22nd 2019

We just got married and chose DJ Josh Bennett and Lake Erie Events to provide the music, uplighting, photo booth and a monogram. The whole planning process with Josh was simple and stress free! He was extremely professional and provided amazing service. Our Disney themed wedding was a blast and he kept our guests dancing and running back to the dance floor. I highly recommend booking with them. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Amie Timchak

Wedding On June 15th 2019

Josh did such an amazing job at our wedding last weekend! He has been nothing but helpful and knowledgeable throughout the whole entire process. Josh was always able to answer our questions promptly and professionally. Josh had a very easy guide for us to follow to complete the planning process. Josh traveled to Central PA to DJ our wedding! He was set up and playing music before guests even arrived! We had uplighting throughout the reception and great lighting throughout the evening! We also had the photo booth with print out pictures that was a huge hit with our guests! He also had a very detailed outline, that we had access to, of how the events were going to run and in what order. He was able to keep the formalities moving at the beginning of the reception without a hitch. Josh also did an awesome job at watching the dance floor and playing to the crowd. He had us dancing all night!

Amy Boettiger

Wedding On June 8th 2019

DJ Josh was phenomenal for our wedding reception! Will definitely recommend his business for any event!

 

Meghin May

Wedding On May 25th 2019

Josh went above and beyond for our wedding. Everything was perfect from the uplighting to the music selection. He was funny and kept the crowd entertained. The photobooth was so fun and everyone loved it. We can’t thank him enough for what he did.

 

Toria Triscari

Wedding On May 25th 2019

I can't say enough good things about Lake Erie Events! From the professionalism, great communication and response time (which is BIG when trying to plan a wedding) to the website and then the actual day, everything was great. Cody knew what to play to keep everyone dancing and made sure I was happy at all times! They kept everything so organized and the crowd loved him. Thank you guys so much for everything

 

Karen Genovese

Graduation Party On May 19th 2019

We had the photo booth for my sons graduation party at Colony.  Everyone young and not so young had a great time with it.  Its hard when your busy to go around and take pictures.  With this you have a picture of everyone that comes. I would definitely recommend having this at your party or function.  Josh was great to work with as well, very punctual and he did the set up/take down so it was super easy for me.

Katelyn Greene

Wedding On May 18th 2019

Cody was an awesome DJ! We got so many compliments from both older and younger people on him! His music selection pleased everyone. He arrived very early the day of to prepare for the ceremony services/reception to make sure everything ran smoothly. Josh was also great in the weeks leading up to our big day as we could not meet with Cody. He is very organized and quick to respond with any questions. When I say quick he would literally always text/message back within like 5 MINUTES!

Diane Phillips (Mom)

Sweet 16 On May 17th 2019

It was a pleasure working with Lake Erie Events. They are a very professional and reliable company. Every detail was discussed and communication with Josh and DJ Sean was top-notch. In the past, we had unpleasant experiences with other companies.Lake Erie Events does not disappoint. The party was great with non-stop music fit for a teenage crowd!  Very respectful and enjoyable!!

Lisa Lichota (Teacher)

Conneaut Area Senior High's Prom On May 10th 2019

DJ Cody was professional and courteous; I was more than pleased with the whole evening.

Juliana Smith

Wedding On May 5th 2019

Josh was amazing to work with from day one! I was blown away by the lighting and everything when I walked into the reception. The music was awesome and he had EVERYONE out on that dance floor! He also did an amazing job getting out huge bridal party in place when we all walked in. Can’t thank him and his team enough for everything!!!!

Katie Yochim (Erie Insurance)
Conference Banquet On April 6th 2019

Josh and Sean were awesome! The conference was all middle-aged women so his music selection was great and made everyone get up on their feet and dance. Josh's ice breaker was great, too. Awesome job all around!

Lauren Colvin (Erie Regional ROTC Student)

School Dance On March 29th 2019

You are the best DJ I’ve ever dealt with or ever heard at a dance or event. Thank you for everything!

 

Caitlin Wurst

Wedding On October 20th 2018

I would recommend 10/10 times. I felt like I could completely rely on Cody to get things in order and run the show. He was very good about communication and I always knew what was going on. I LOVED the photo booth and was so happy we did the digital! We also thought we would want the photo strip but Josh talked us into the GIF and it was a huge hit. The music was a mix of everything and the dance floor was packed the entire night. You will not regret booking Cody with Lake Erie Events!

Jennifer King

Wedding On September 30th 2018

It was a blessing to be able to have a DJ that knew us and worked with us so well. I don't think there is anything that I could've asked for more in addition to the experience we had. We picked the songs and filled out the form online, met with Josh, and it was all over before we knew it. We were worried with us living in Arizona and coming to Pennsylvania only a week before the wedding, but it still went smoothly. Josh handled our requests well and helped us decide on things that we hadn't thought of prior to our final meeting. He communicated efficiently with the other components of the wedding and handle himself with a display of professionalism and we received nothing but good reviews from the guests who attended. My grandma really appreciated the tribute to her brother she lost this year just a month before the wedding. The surprise at the end really tied it all together and couldn't be more thankful.

 

Mackenzie Bernading

Photobooth Rental on September 8th 2018

Tonya was the our photo booth attendant. She did a fantastic job! The photo booth never looked empty. By the photos we had at the end of the night everyone seemed to have enjoyed it! I would definitely use Lake Erie Events again and I would highly recommend them!! Special thanks to Tonya for helping make our day extra special!!

  

Celeste Pieper

Wedding on September 2nd 2018

Excellent Service

 

Seth Thompson

Wedding on September 2nd 2018

Dance floor was lively all night, and Matt did an awesome job of making sure requests were handled in an adequate manner and also keeping to the styles that we wanted.

 

Amanda Anthony

Wedding on September 1st 2018

DJ Josh hands down best DJ around!

 

Wendy Burns

Wedding on August 18th 2018

I am so glad I chose DJ Josh Bennett from Lake Erie Events as my wedding DJ! He was very easy to work with, professional, and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. He considered and delivered all of my requests, but also made suggestions based on experience when we were indecisive or unsure of what would work best. He provided music for my ceremony and reception and both were absolutely perfect! He was present enough to keep everyone entertained during our cocktail hour and kept the dance floor packed the entire night, but was also not overbearing or talking the whole time. I couldn't be happier with his services!

 

Amanda Bell

Wedding on August 18th 2018

Matt was very respectful and great dealing with the changes to the wedding party. And respectful of what music choices I did or did not want. If there was a type of music someone requested that I stayed away from he had them come ask me first before playing. Which was great. He was awesome! 
 

Erica Schwein

Wedding on August 18th 2018

Josh has been so easy to work with and really helpful throughout wedding planning. Cody and Sean were very professional and easy going.

Tiffany Skladanowski

Josh I can not thank you enough for making our day so special..With all of your help you helped me stay so calm..You made sure everything was perfect, so I didn't have to worry.We love how you paid extra attention to everything. When you surprised us with the Ed Sheeran song..WOW is all I can say..That was SO SO magical and memorable..Thank you so much for making our day so special..Our guests are still talking about how awesome our day was.

 

Alyvia Town on July 28th 2018

DJ Josh and his crew made the entire night!! We are so thankful to have them be apart of our day! Music choices were spot on, sounded perfect, uplighting was AMAZING, they kept all details from the itinerary right in track! We had a slight medical problem with a family member that haulted the reception but after things were taken care of DJ Josh got EVERYBODY right back on the dance floor the ENTIRE night!! Thank you Josh and crew!! You guys made the night beyond memorable!

Catherine Moyer on July 7th 2018

Lake Erie Events did an amazing job with our wedding! Josh was our DJ and Matt was our photo booth attendant and they made the night super fun! Josh really put guests in the mood to party and get out onto the dance floor and Matt was a hit at the photo booth. We definitely recommend them!!

Julie Headley on June 6th 2018

Josh, Thank you so much for the outstanding job you did at our wedding reception. You were very professional and did a fantastic job with keeping us on schedule.  The lighting was perfect and the song choices were great.  The dance floor was never empty and the atmosphere at the reception was everything we had hoped for. We have had several guests tell us numerous times how much they enjoyed the music.  We appreciate all that you did for us and would highly recommend you to any family and friends.  Thank you!!

 

Chauntel Kasbee on May 27th 2018

Dylan (with Lake Erie Events) was very professional, fun, and entertaining! He exceeded everything we asked for from the ceremony through cocktail hour, dinner, and the entire reception. A DJ can truly make or break the party and Dylan absolutely made it a night to remember! We had so many of our guests come up to us and tell us it was the best and most fun wedding they have ever been to and a lot of that falls on Dylan. He checked in with us throughout the day and even brought us drinks while we were busy taking pictures! He was so sweet and I’d absolutely recommend Dylan to anyone needing a DJ! He made our wedding so memorable and I’m so thankful for his services!

Sydney Himelein on May 27th 2018

Josh did an amazing job! Everyone had a great time ❤️ I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ who goes the extra mile.

Jill Uber on May 19th 2018

Josh did a great job! He read the crowd perfectly and played what people wanted to hear. He was so great about constantly communicating with us and keeping things flowing.

Jaclyn McCoy on May 19th 2018

Josh and his team has been doing our dances for the last 4 years and has been wonderful to work with, his services are fantastic and he is a great host for any prom or wedding.

 

 

Braidy Lucas on May 18th 2018

Josh and his team did an absolutely amazing job at my wedding! Not only was the music awesome, but our lighting was out of this world, everything I wanted and more! Everyone still comments to this day about how much fun it was! Some people even want another reception for our 1 year anniversary! Josh absolutely crushed it and had a surprise for us at the end of the night that made our day even more magicial!!! You can’t go wrong booking Lake Erie events!

 

Michelle Reed on May 11th 2018

DJ Matt Sinnott was great at our function, we will definitely look you up again for our next event!  Everything worked out great, thank you so much!

Merrilynn Giles on May 11th 2018

For our prom DJ Josh did a great job on keeping the students involved and on the dance floor.   His light show is great and really adds to the atmosphere of the event.  The kids love him!!  We added the photo booth this year and it was a hit! Great job on another fantastic prom for our school!

Nova Dinsmore on May 4th 2018

Excellent personality, music selection, sound quality, volume, and appearance for the prom.

 

Tim May on April 7th 2018

Lake Erie Events was a great addition to our daughter's sweet 16 party!

Sylvia Parker on March 3rd 2018

Josh is awesome! He kept everything running smoothly! Our reception hall was PACKED and with the small space that was left for him he made it work. We had so much fun and can't thank Josh enough!!!!!!

 

 

Alex Carmen on January 20th 2018

Excellent music selection for the wedding.

Christa Craven on January 1st 2018

Sean did a GREAT job. Party guests were very impressed. Our guests were much older than the DJ, but our requests for 70's, 80's, 90's and country were well received. We also asked that the music not be so loud that people couldn't talk, mission accomplished, right from the start. Even Sean looked like he was having fun! We all had a great time! Thanks Josh! We would recommend your company and Sean to anybody looking for a very professional DJ service.

Wendy Kranz on December 30th 2017

Josh was the DJ at my Wedding on December 30, 2017 in one of the Season's biggest snow storms Erie has ever seen. Josh was on time, dressed very professional, handled himself professionally the entire time. He took care of everything for me. I did not have to worry about anything the entire time. All of my guest made comments to me on the dance floor that they loved the music and the DJ. We were extremely impressed with him. Thank you Josh so much for making my day so wonderful.

 

Ned Smith on December 9th 2017

Josh is a perfect MC.

Carolyn Cartwright on December 2nd 2017

DJ Josh made our company holiday party the best it could be!

Mike Hayes on November 18th 2017

Lake Erie Events was, as always, a vital part of making our annual fundraising mystery dinner a tremendous success. They didn't just meet our expectations, they anticipated what we needed and provided it. They'll continue to be our first call anytime we need event support!

Rebecca Daley (Macy's, Millcreek Mall) on October 14th 2017

Extremely pleased with the music, energy and professionalism of Josh. He was a big hit with the entire store team and customers. Thank you!!

Grant and Sarah McDonald on October 14th 2017

We were so happy with Cody at Lake Erie Events!!! Everyone has been raving about the DJ since our special day. He kept things moving but it never seemed rushed. The song selection was exactly the music we love. It was apparent that Cody payed attention to the songs that got the best reactions from the crowd and played similar music to keep everyone engaged and having a good time. Once the dancing started I don’t think the dance floor was empty once! We had a blast!

 

Brittany Shidemantle on October 7th 2017 

Everything was very professional and ran very smoothly and I was very pleased with how well DJ Cody was!!

Cody Hunter on October 7th 2017 

Josh was great! He had everything lined up and on schedule so we did not have to worry and could enjoy our day. He was very professional and had a great selection of music. Everyone had a blast and we are very thankful that we got to share it with Lake Erie events! Thank you so much!

Lynne Rudzinski on October 7th 2017 

Sean did a great job, thank you so much!

Jonathan Ogden on September 30th 2017 

Your services were a perfect fit and made for an incredible, memorable wedding reception!

Maplewood High School on September 30th 2017 

Your service was excellent from start to finish! You were patient with our process and understanding of our needs. Communication is a strength of your company, which is especially critical when dealing with teachers and students. The event itself was a huge success. DJ Matt was professional, talented, respectful, and enthusiastic. We could tell he was enjoying his job! The crowd fed off his energy and there was never a dull moment. This may be the first time our students spent the entire time on the dance floor, they didn't want to leave!

 

Shaylyn Sonney on September 23rd 2017

Honestly Cody Gilson perfected our wedding and exceeded above our expectations. He was very professional, went above and beyond for us and made the reception a night to remember! We can't thank him enough for being an exceptional DJ but now a new friend! We didn't want the party to ever stop but Cody even surprised us with a candle light dance. So unexpected and a beautiful touch. Lake Erie Events really knows how to please their customers and to make any event absolutely perfect. Thank you again and we cannot wait to work with you again someday!

Katelyn Peterson on September 23rd 2017

We would like to thank Josh and Sean for providing wonderful service on our wedding day! We had so many compliments on our DJ and how fun the photobooth was! Everything went so smooth!

Kelsie Ream on September 2nd 2017

We LOVED Matt. He did great! Was so personable with everyone. And that's just how we like it. People who attended were so happy with the songs and experience he gave us! Made both our ceremony and reception wonderful!

Gabrielle Parker on September 2nd 2017

Cody went out of his way to ensure that everything was perfect! We had an outside wedding under a tent, he was not satisfied with the tent and made sure that everything was fixed before the reception started! Cody then went out of his way to make sure that outside tables were set up and decorated (due to last minute cancellation of server's). He kept the event going smoothly and was seriously amazing!! So many things went wrong that day but Cody and his DJ service's were definitely not one of them! Absolutely amazing and we couldn't have been happier!!!

 

Natasha Weikal on July 22nd 2017

Cody couldn't have been more fantastic. Everything looked great and we had an amazing time. He did a great job of making sure everything was going smoothly, asking us if we needed anything and letting us know what was coming next. I would highly recommend him as a DJ!!

Rick Hammar on July 7th 2017

Cody was actually our back up DJ and not our first choice. Of course my wife and I were a little worried at first. However, from start to finish, he rocked the house. Cody ended up being one of the best additions to the wedding. I had about 30 or 40 people come up to us after the reception telling us that was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. Also, multiple people said they loved the dj's interactions with all the guests. All and all. Best dj performance I've ever seen. FROM BRITTANY AND MY SELF, THANK YOU CODY GILSON

Tamala Swart on June 24th 2017

Matt did a fantastic job at my sons stag. The guests and bridesmaids/groomsmen had a wonderful time!

Jason Barco on June 24th 2017

Josh and Lake Erie Events did a great job! We have received a tremendous amount of compliments about Josh (and Stephanie from the photo booth) from our wedding guest. Thank for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Sarah and I highly recommend Lake Erie Events and Josh for any of your event needs.

 

Cecelia Flowers on June 24th 2017

Cody did a wonderful job and our wedding guests commented (at several points throughout cocktail hour and dinner) on how they appreciated the music selection. When it was time to dance, Cody was happy to oblige my 7 year old niece, who made MANY requests. All in all, it was a great experience and I would definitely use Lake Erie Events again.

Lauren Dyer on June 3rd 2017

Cody was fantastic!! We could not have asked for anything better! We had lots of quirky requests throughout the evening and he he executed everything to perfection! We had a pretty diverse crowd of guests and both my husband and I had people approach us all night about how wonderful our DJ was. I highly recommend Lake Erie Events and Cody truly was a part of why our day was so special!

Kayla Kedzior on March 25th 2017

Sean did a great job of playing the type of music we decided on when we met with him prior to the event. During the event he checked in with us multiple times to see if we needed anything. The guests made many requests and Sean kept everyone entertained.

Bryana Greene on December 10th 2016

Josh was amazing from the very start. Very personable and easy to work with. During the whole reception people kept coming up to us and telling us how much they loved the music choices. Once the dancing started Josh had the whole party on the floor, even people I didn't expect to out there at all. Two weeks after we are still having people telling us how much fun the had. We could not be more grateful that we chose Lake Erie Events for our wedding.

 

Ned Smith on December 3rd 2016
You're always attentive to your customer's wants and needs, and our events wouldn't be the same without you.

 

Plastikos Inc. On December 3rd 2016

I just wanted to let you know that we had several positive comments on the event Saturday night at the Sheraton. You did an awesome job and they loved your personality! My understanding is that in the past the DJ wasn't as entertaining, so they really enjoyed it. I appreciate all that you did and for being patient with us as we worked on coordinating everything!

Mike Hayes on November 19th 2016

Absolutely top notch - added a professional touch to our event that simply would not have been there otherwise. Josh and his team anticipated what was needed and offered suggestions to address needs that we had which we had not even realized.

Will Law on November 12th 2016

Josh once again, went above and beyond to provide the absolute best experience for our wedding. He made sure the day went smoothly and continued to keep us in the loop of different ideas etc... Highly Recommended! 5-Star Service.​

Abigail Parker on October 29th 2016 

​I would and have already highly recommended DJ Josh to other brides. He was a wonderful DJ and we have people asking us if we could do the wedding all over again because they had so much fun. DJ Josh was so well organized with entire reception I was beyond happy with him!

 

Danielle Little on August 20th 2016

Cody did a wonderful job not only helping with music and organization for the day, but also tailoring to any need that we had to make sure we were enjoying our day.

Jim and Linda Kaschalk on July 9th 2016

5 Stars! Best DJ ever!

Chantal Bidwell on August 8th 2015

DJ Josh did a fantastic job at our wedding; he provided the music for both our reception and ceremony. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect, Josh played every song we requested and it was exactly what I hoped for. At the reception, Josh and his helpers were polite, upbeat, entertaining, respectful, full of energy, timely, and they kept the party going! In fact, it was so fun that we even asked Josh to go past our scheduled time and he was completely supportive. Being that we had over 400 guests, our reception felt like a night club which was exactly what we were hoping for! We had a such a great experience with Josh that my sister and her fiancé are hiring him for next year. I highly recommend Lake Erie Events for any and all occasions! You will not be disappointed :)

Sandra Hugar on August 24th 2013

Josh did an amazing job. His online planner and music selection tools made it incredibly easy to pick songs and plan out part of the reception.

Nick Larese on October 6th 2012

Josh was unbelievably amazing! He was ultra professional both at our meetings prior to the wedding and at the event itself. He had the dance floor packed and it is safe to say everyone had a blast!
