What Our Clients Say

A Recent Review

It was an absolute delight to have Benny DJ our wedding at The Bohlin in Newport, RI. From the first time we spoke with him, we knew he was exactly what we were looking for. He's professional, thorough, attentive, collaborative, and full of non-stop positive energy. He worked closely with us in the months leading up to help craft our wedding day. He always had great feedback and opinions on all our emails, never sparing how the logistics and details would work. It was fantastic to not be worried one bit about the entertainment ahead of time, and on the wedding day he delivered an incredible playlist that had everybody dancing all night. And in addition to DJ'ing the reception, he played keyboard with his band during the ceremony! We'd highly recommend using Benny for any event, especially if you want a very memorable wedding!

I cannot say enough good things about Benny Goodman! He was AMAZING! Our guests are cannot stop talking about how great our DJ was. Not only was he on time, professional and full of energy, he made our reception an absolute BLAST! He had all our guest pumped and they didn’t leave the dance floor. Leading up to the wedding he took the time to talk with my husband and myself and get to know each of us. We both like very different music and I don’t know how Benny did it, but he managed to include a piece of each of us in his music selections. We had specific songs that needed to be played and he helped us select the best times to do it so it wouldn’t ruin the vibe of the wedding. For cocktail hour, the venue had a piano and Benny was able to play the piano for our guests which set the tone for the night. Prior to the wedding I had some people question my choice to get a DJ over a band, but after listening to Benny play the piano and then DJ the reception they realized this wasn’t your ordinary DJ. I even had people coming up and asking me how I knew Benny, because they thought for sure he was either a family member or a friend, just by the way he engaged with the crowd. I want to have another event just so I can hire Benny again! You need this man at your wedding!

Benny is extremely hard-working, communicative, and positive; we had a great time working with him throughout preparation for our wedding (for which he & his band provided both live music and DJing). I appreciated that he opened our communication with a very clear, honest explanation of his style/preferences for providing music (e.g., what kinds of music he would/wouldn't be able to learn in time for a live performance) and working with parties, and he kept up the great communication throughout. His energy is infectious, and we and our guests loved the performances. Thank you to Benny & his band!

Benny Goodman was by far the best DJ (really, a musician) choice we could have made for our wedding! Throughout the entire process, from signing the contract until he left for the night after the wedding, he was professional, friendly, accommodating and, most importantly, accessible. I can’t tell you how many times I sent him emails or texts at all hours of the day with ideas or concerns, and he always got back to me. He was readily available with suggestions to my wedding timeline, giving me expert advice on what he’s seen work and what might be a better solution. We also hired him to play piano for our cocktail hour, and it was amazing! He is a true musician, his love of piano is evident in his finesse and musical prowess, seamlessly transitioning between Beethoven and Queen and making is sound beautiful! DJ Benny is a must have for your wedding. I’m serious. He’s a great listener, and always puts you first. He always has you at the top of his priority list, going out of his way to ensure your wedding is exactly the way you envision it! Thank you Benny for an unforgettable wedding!

Benny did an amazing job hosting our firm annual Holiday Party! He really knows how to read a crowd and does an amazing getting the party going, which could be tough with corporate parties. He's a pleasure to work with. He’s super professional, reliable, creative, and has a great spirit that can really win over any crowd. All in all, we are pleased with his service and can’t wait to work with him again in the future.

The ONLY DJ I will ever recommend!

Where do I begin!? I can honestly say that my wedding would not have been nearly as amazing as it was without Benny. He was professional, punctual and kept the dance floor PACKED the entire night. As a bride, I had fears that I would have an empty floor with no one busting any moves. Benny made sure that did NOT happen. In fact, he helped my husband's band set up a surprise set for me, had my 5 year old niece surprise me with a song (stealing the show might I add) as well as my dad and a close friend also getting on the mic! From the planning (which was an out of state wedding he traveled to) to the after party, Benny was there for it ALL. To this day we have guest 3 years later STILL talking about how amazing the wedding was. Every detail and song was so well thought out, I barely had time away from the dance floor! I am SO excited to say that he will be the DJ at my sister's wedding this year!! Benny is outstanding at what he does and will not disappoint. Don't let this one get away!

My wife and I made the decision to use Benny Goodman for our DJ/MC/Piano services for our special day and it was A HIT!!! We had Benny, who is an amazing pianist, play some selections for cocktail hour on the piano and it was beautiful, and the ambiance was perfect for our older and refined guests! After our vows his assistant Alicia sang a beautiful set of pop tunes and played acoustic guitar. When dinner was finished we had a killer dance party all night long and my friends said it was the best wedding of their lives! Benny and company are professional, courteous, super cool, attentive, and work with your specific desires to create the day of your dreams

Our wedding was truly amazing and we give a huge amount of credit to our DJ/emcee, Benny. Benny was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. He was always so responsive and really helped us figure out what would work best any time we were indecisive. Talking with Benny on the stressful days of wedding planning always changed the mood and ended in laughter and excitement for the big day! Benny took a ton of time to get to know us and made sure our wedding truly reflected our personal style. And everyone had such a great time, which was really the most important thing to us. Family and friends are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding! Benny was honestly one of the best decisions we made, so seriously, if you are still looking for your DJ - stop. You will not be disappointed! 🙂 Highly HIGHLY recommend!

Honestly all I can say is UNBELIEVABLE! Benny is the real deal. I can't say enough good things about our experience. From the beginning, Benny was welcoming, enthusiastic and really got our vision for our wedding day. I could already tell from our initial phone call that I picked the right person! When it was closer to the wedding, we sent Benny our timeline and top songs and had a final phone review which helped a lot with my wedding anxiety! The day of the wedding, our dance floor was constantly full of guests! It was actually unreal how every single person was out there on the floor. He played songs for all age groups and people are still raving about the music. I think a DJ is the biggest part of your wedding day and I would recommend Benny 100%!! He is extremely knowledgeable & his confidence really eases any concerns a bride might have! His assistant Alicia even took some behind the scene snaps of our day and It meant a lot to have these memories! I'm forever grateful!

Where to begin, Benny is the full package! Right from the start he is nothing but professionalism with a super easy vibe. He was so fun to plan with and full of great fresh ideas. He is a master as a DJ, will keep everyone on the dance floor but also a gifted musician. If you have the opportunity to make Benny part of your special day, do it!! He will elevate your event with a lot of class, great music and kindness.

Look no further. Benny is your guy. You want responsibility and reliability? Check. You want charisma? Check. You want care? comedy? Something bespoke? And an all around FUN time?? Check, check, and 1000% check! We can't recommend Benny enough. He was the glue that kept the fun running all night long. Benny was in touch with me constantly throughout the entire planning process, carefully designing what would ultimately be the best wedding I could ask for. He is responsive, takes initiative, prepared, a planner, and what comes from all of that? Success. And that's what our wedding was. Beyond that, Benny spun the BEST tunes that kept the night rocking, people happy, and wanting more. Thanks so much Benny. If we were to do it all again, it'd be with you.

My partner and I got married on Sunday, October 27th, 2019 and we chose Benny for our DJ and we were so happy we did. I have been working with Benny since the fall of 2018 to plan our wedding music and he was so accommodating and thoughtful. He and his team were just fantastic and they had everybody on the dance floor with an amazing selection of songs that kept people rockin'! Benny's attention to details were great and he always wanted to make sure he was providing us with the type of wedding music we wanted. It was outstanding! Look no further. Benny is the one!

Richard G.

When I got married I did not even think twice to ask Benny Goodman. I have known him for the better part of 15 years and he is one of the most talented, personable people I know so it was a given we would have him be a part of our wedding. As both my wife Sara and I expected, Benny came in and helped make our day perfect, playing just the right music, MCing like a champion, and keeping my friends and family going. Trust me, I've known this guy for almost half of my life, you could not find a better DJ, musician, or person, for that matter, to help with your wedding! Call him

We couldn't have chosen a better DJ for our wedding!! We hired Benny for our DJ and the Speak EZ Duo to play during cocktail hour/dinner and everyone was AMAZING!! I had people coming up to me all night saying how awesome Benny was, even though I already knew from the size and energy of the crowd on the dancefloor all night. Benny was great at communicating and working with us during the entire process and helped us fine tune the outline of the reception to make it the BEST EVER! Benny really is your advocate for the day to make sure everything goes smooth without you having to worry about it on your big day! He really does bring the hype, which was so great having that energy to get our guests of all ages onto the dancefloor. Him and his assistant Alicia even took videos of the dancefloor after our photographer/videographer left which is so fun to have those late night dances to look back on. I really cannot say enough good things about Benny! I already want my friends to hire them for their wedding just so I can party with him again!

5 stars aren’t enough!

Stop your search because Benny NEEDS to be your DJ. Looking for a DJ was a little overwhelming... a photographer can show you their portfolio but you are really trusting that a DJ can do what they say they can. We had a cocktail style reception, meaning no seated dinner and mostly dancing. That really put the pressure on Benny and boy did he deliver.Benny really made an effort to get to know us as a couple and learn about our taste in music. He felt the vibe of our guests and really played to the crowd, which meant the dance floor was always packed. Every DJ plays that one song that makes people leave the dance floor to grab a drink and hit the bathroom... not Benny. Non-stop killer music the entire time.I'm so grateful we found Benny and Alicia, I honestly can say our wedding would've suffered without them! 5 stars aren't enough.
