What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My name is Dave. I've been a musician since age 12. I played guitar and drums in a band for 9 years. In my spare time I produce music at my studio. Creating music, playing music, and entertaining others has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy doing things that seem impossible. I strive to break boundaries and perform at the best of my ability. For many years I wasn't sure if I would have the opportunity to do this full-time for a living. With the right amount of dedication, knowledge, experience, practice and hard work, anything is possible. It's a blessing to be able to provide unforgettable experiences to large, diverse groups of people every weekend. What do I enjoy the most? Being able to bring people together with the power of music. A successful event is not just about the equipment or the music request list. An entertainer must be healthy, focused, positive, energetic and ready to adapt in order to successfully entertain and excite the audience. Our charisma, character, and charm are just as important as the equipment we choose to use. We aim to develop a clear and concise understanding of what our clients want so that we can deliver a performance that is unique to you and your guests. Add our years of experience and professional recommendations to the mix, and you can guarantee that every guest will leave saying, "Wow. That was awesome!"

    Dj Afino is awesome and knows how to keep a party dancing. We lucked out finding Dave as our DJ. For starters, he was responsive and very helpful leading up the wedding when I would e-mail him at 1am with requests/changes and he would instantly e-mail me back. Our guests enjoyed him the night of the wedding as well. And the video he makes for you is such a special gift, too. We recommend Dj Afino for any event.

    Gabrielle & Daniel: Thank you so much! You two had such a beautiful wedding. It was my second time visiting Skylands Manor (first time for a wedding!). What an absolutely beautiful location. It was so much fun working with you to create a custom introduction and putting together a mix for you and your dad to dance to. Everyone loved it! The wristbands you gave to your guests to help spread awareness about ALS was so nice to witness and be a part of. You two are absolutely wonderful. It was such an honor to be there. Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your very special day. I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success for years to come. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Severn! May life continue to bless you in all that you aim to accomplish.

    I planned my wedding in less than two months. Dave was recommended to me by a mutual friend and after our first contact I knew I hit the DJ jackpot! He was so friendly and professional through the whole process. For a last minute date on a Monday night he proceeded all my expectations! He worked with my budget and had the party going all night! Almost all my guests complimented on how much fun he was! Thank you so much Dave!!

Your ceremony officiant was one of the best I've ever worked with. It was an honor to be there to share in the experience. Everyone was happy, supportive, and in a good mood from the beginning to the end. I'm so happy for the both of you. I wish you peace, love, happiness, and continued success.

It was great to see you two in such a good mood when I got to speak with you during your Cocktail Hour. You two have such a vibrant energy. All of your friends and family are so loving and supportive of you. I loved all of your music selections, your decorations, and the anniversary dance we had to recognize the older couples that have been together a long time. Everything was beautiful. Thank you so much for having me. I wish you two peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. White!

    Felix: Thank you so much! You put together an incredible party for Thalia's Sweet 16. You picked one of my favorite locations. They do such an incredible job at Sterling Gardens in Matawan. I absolutely loved her Disney theme, paired with Red, Blue, & Gold decor and lighting. It was wonderful to see her share a special dance with you, and even more amazing when you walked in with that Darth Vader mask. She had no idea you were going to surprise her with that during her Candle Lighting Ceremony as she called you up to light a candle to the Stars Wars theme song. That was such a memorable moment I'll never forget. You and your family put together a beautiful day for her. It was an honor to be there to share in the experience. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Happy Birthday Thalia! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

    Afino entertainment did an amazing job at my party. Dave from Afino arrived early to set up and make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. Dave also kept in touch throughout the day which allowed me to feel comfortable that he would deliver his services on time and to my expectations. Dave was very outgoing, profeesional but social which in turn made him a great MC along with his DJ skills. I would highly recommend Afino Entertainment. 10 Stars, thank you Dave!

You're destined to achieve great things.

    Dave from Afino Entertainment is wonderful. He made my daughter's wedding day a great success. He tries to really understand what the customer wants, and the type of music they want to hear. Many of my guests raved about the music he provided. They also loved his special effects such as "dancing on the clouds". I would definitely recommend Afino Entertainment and will use them again in the future.

It was an honor to be a part of your special day. You had gorgeous weather for your outdoor ceremony at The Radisson's Crystal Ballroom in Freehold. I loved your selection of music. It was wonderful to see your Name In Lights on the wall at your reception, and I always love seeing a couple share their first dance with one another as husband and wife on a sea of clouds. I enjoyed every minute of your wedding. You two are wonderful people, with lots of love and good spirit. Thank you so much for having me, and thank you for your review. I hope you two enjoy your honeymoon! You deserve all the best. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Driggs! May God continue to bless your beautiful hearts. I wish you an eternity of love and happiness.

    Memorial Day weekend. The process of picking a DJ was for us one of the things we worried the most about. We had been to a few weddings where the music took away from the night and our biggest fear was that the dance floor would be empty. Both our families are big dancers and wedding people so we knew that we had to pick the right DJ – and boy did we pick the right one! At our first in person meeting with Dave we knew he was the right choice. Dave was warm, inviting, friendly and extremely professional. As a gay couple we were very impressed by his openness and that he had same sex wedding paperwork, since on so many of our wedding papers we had Groom and Bride signature lines. In addition to this we never had to ask any of our questions since Dave consistently soothed our worries by just explaining his process and approach. We wanted a DJ that knew and loved his craft and didn’t just hit play on a playlist, but could read a room and weave music and styles together and Dave did all this masterfully. Afino’s professionalism and respect for the job is demonstrated by his very detailed pre-wedding questionnaire he has you do before you big day. It may seem like a lot, but it was very enjoyable for us both and really helped us think critically about the type of music and night we wanted. Dave gives you a lot of options for the night, but remember everything is customizable and he is very, very easy and open to work with. By the way, if you are thinking this questionnaire is a glorified playlist you are wrong – it is a guide and that was clear to us on the wedding day when Dave played music and songs we would have never thought of, but fit the mood perfectly and kept everyone raging. At our wedding day Dave truly brought everything together for an amazing and fun night. That may sound like a cliché that everyone says about their wedding, but in our case it was absolutely true. With the few exceptions of during speeches and in the beginning of the main course that dance floor was never empty! We have had so many people come to us and say how amazing the music was and that it was one of the most fun weddings they have been to. To date at least 2 people have asked for his info to recommend for other weddings and our cousin is using Dave for her wedding in September. Picking a DJ can be hard work and something couples worry a lot about, but look no further folks. If you are here reading this – BOOK DAVE – DJ AFINO NOW! You will not regret it!
    DJ AFINO ツ. Jul 6, 2017

    Anthony & Daniel: Wow. I'm speechless. Not many couples take the time to write such a lengthy review, and I can't be happier to sit here and read this (for the third time now lol). It melts my heart to know that you two enjoyed your day. I have to admit that you started off on the right foot by booking an absolutely gorgeous location at Snug Harbor in Staten Island. Everything you wrote in this review is exactly what I aim to do for every couple that books their wedding with me. The fact that you were able to see that, remember all of it, and write such a beautiful, detailed review shows me that you two will continue to experience nothing but the highest levels of success in your lives together. I really can't express how thankful I am for your feedback. It can be a real struggle in this industry trying to prove to people why they should hire you to help create one of the biggest days of their lives. Having reviews like this make my job enjoyable beyond imagination in being able to show others what they have to look forward to if they are willing to give me their trust. It was an honor to be there to witness your marriage and celebrate the occasion with you and your family. You have an incredibly supportive, loving, and talented group of friends and family! If I could go back in time and do it all over again, I'd enjoy every minute of it. Your energy and your love for one another is infectious. I hope that you continue to shine a bright light on others so long as the both of you live. Thank you so much, and congratulations! I wish you an eternity of peace, love, happiness, and continued success. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.

    By far the best experience of all the vendors we used on our wedding day. I was a little apprehensive at first because Dave's prices were so much more reasonable than the DJ who tries to sell you those elaborate packages with a huge staff of personnel. We've been to a few weddings this past year and I've got to say Dave is fully capable of providing the same or superior atmosphere as those who charge MUCH more. The service he provides leaves nothing to be desired. He walked us through everything before the wedding and made sure everything was as we wanted it. My wife and I enjoyed picking out the music on the website Dave provides (optional) and he stuck to what we wanted and totally embraced the vibe we were going for. I can't imagine why anyone pay 2 - 3 times what Dave charges for a McDJ when you could have someone who takes pride in offering a high quality service.
    DJ AFINO ツ. Jul 1, 2017

    Erin & William, thank you so much! It means the world to me to hear you say that. I've even tried raising my prices a few times, but then I wasn't receiving any bookings.. no bookings = no work. So, they continue to be lower than what others charge, and you're right; I remain passionate, positive, energetic, and continue to deliver excellence, because that's what I want for the people that hire me. I want them to say, "Our wedding was perfect." You two had such a beautiful day. It was an honor to be there. I had so much fun, and I'm happy to know that you enjoyed the day. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Grieco! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day.

I was absolutely mesmerized by the breath-taking view overlooking the bridge and the river. You were blessed with such a gorgeous day and perfect weather. It was so nice to witness your Indian guest perform a sacred ceremony for both of you. I loved working with you to put together a custom mix of Cocktail Hour music of some of your favorite songs. The reception was equally beautiful and unforgettable. I was incredibly inspired when Alex's father had a chance to speak, and his brother's speech had me laughing the entire time. You have such a loving, supportive group of family and friends, and I know that you two will continue to do amazing things together. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Tuttle!

    Danielle & Jared, thank you so much! You two had such a beautiful wedding. We had a magical moment where rain washed over the area for 20 minutes, and then it stopped right before the ceremony, and we were able to do your ceremony outside, just as you had hoped for. I loved working with you to incorporate some of your favorite rock music for the cocktail hour, dinner, and various other portions of the day. You put a great deal of effort into every little detail at The Manor, where you had both your Ceremony and the Reception. The atmosphere, including all of the decor, was perfect. You asked for a night of non-stop dancing; a party from the beginning to the end. We were able to accomplish that by putting together a timeline that kept the guests entertained and excited. It was an honor to be there, and a pleasure to share in the experience. Thank you for allowing me to help you create an unforgettable day for you and all of your guests. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Barel! I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness, and continued success with your company Loaded Barrel Studios. You will surely continue to do great things.

    Thank you so much Karen! You're a super woman mom! It's rare to see someone put so much time and effort into the decorations and food. Every little detail impressed and inspired me. You need to start a business selling food. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts you prepared were better than 90% of the places I've visited in the past 5 years (over 140 locations to be exact). Your husband was diligently tidying up, and helping throughout the night as well. You two make a wonderful team, and it makes perfect sense as to why your daughter and her friends were so wonderful to be around. She has a very bright future ahead of her with that loving and supportive group of friends she has. Keep up the good work! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special celebration.

    Dave went above and beyond for our wedding May 20th. We planned our wedding from San Diego, so distance was a struggle, but Dave made it seamless. We didn't even meet until the day of and I'm bummed because he was awesome! The uplighting was beautiful, he performed our pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour and long extended reception. We had an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and Dave used all of his wireless equipment. The crowd never stopped dancing and he read everyone's mood to keep the dance floor full. He even customized our first dance song, and managed to capture us completely. Music is a VERY important part of our lives and we're honored to say Dave was our wedding day DJ. If you're getting married in the tri-state area and haven't booked Dave, you're crazy. I already have friends booking him for Fall 2018! Thank you sooooooo much! ~ Matija and Joe

    Joseph & Matija, thank you so much! I don't know where to begin. I'll never forget what an incredibly beautiful day we had. Let me start by saying that you chose an absolutely beautiful location to get married at and celebrate this special occasion with all of your friends and family. Your beach ceremony was breathtaking. It was a perfect day, and you two were blessed with the perfect weather. All of your friends and family were some of the nicest, friendliest, most supportive people I've met in my life. The amount of love and support you have is contagious and inspiring. Your selection of music was phenomenal. I could happily go back in time and enjoy your wedding all over again without hesitation. The love you have for one another is magical, and so is the story you share. I loved creating your custom cocktail hour mix, as well as your first dance mashup. The creativity and thought that you put into every little detail was worth every minute of the experience. I'm humbled, honored, and blessed to have been able to be a part of your very special day. The highlight of my night was witnessing Joe's mom look at him while he was performing his DJ set toward the end of the night, and watching her say to him, "Joe! You're F#&%ING killing it!" lolol That was both hilarious, and beautiful to witness. Seriously, that melted my heart. I'm so happy you decided to add uplighting around the room. That room looked absolutely stunning. It always makes a huge difference when it comes time to dance and celebrate the moment with one another, adding energy and excitement, through the use of intelligent lighting. I'm so happy for the both of you, and I wish you two peace, love, happiness, and continued success for many years to come. I'll never forget the both of you, nor your family and friends. I hope that I am able to come visit one day when I am granted the opportunity to move to California. Keep doing what you're doing. It's working well! Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Tomasello! :]

    Dave is incredible! He dj'ed our wedding on May 7th at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ and did an impeccable job. He was amazing from start to finish, and made our day so special. His process is extremely streamlined, which helped make things easy for us. He has a great presence, and voice on the mic, is very easy-going and was a real pleasure to work with. He played all the songs we asked for and added to that vibe by filling in the gaps with his own additions. Everyone had an awesome time and danced the whole night. We got amazing feedback from our guests all night about the music. We really felt he went above and beyond, and we highly recommend his services. Thanks again, Dave! G&J

    Afino deserves 5 stars across the board! Dave is amazingly talented and was the icing on the cake at our wedding! He paid close attention to details, like pronouncing the bridal party names correctly to editing our songs as requested. He kept the party going all night and made sure our guests were up dancing and having a good time. He created a great atmosphere with both the music and the up-lighting... and not to mention dancing on the clouds for our first dance as husband and wife. We are so happy with Dave's professionalism and would recommend him to ANYONE!

    Pat & Dean: Thank you so much! Your wedding was incredible. Thank you so much for inviting me to celebrate your special day with you and your family. I'm not sure if the fire alarm was set off accidentally or because of my fog machine, but I drove 3 hours the following day to Queens to get a new fog machine that uses Dry Ice to prevent that from ever happening again. I was told that the original machine I bought wouldn't set it off, but upon further research it seems like it might have been the culprit. Nonetheless, I'm glad that everyone was up and dancing all night! You planned and prepared a magnificent day. The room at The Loft looked absolutely gorgeous. I loved working with you to create a unique cocktail hour mix starting with some of your favorite romantic songs and ending with upbeat dance music to get the guests excited for the reception. Kirby, your Matîre D', was so professional and polite to work with as well. It was an honor and pleasure to be there. Thank you for creating a day we'll never forget. I wish you two peace, love, happiness and continued success for many years to come! Congratulations Pat & Dean.

    DJ Afino is the very best. Heather's sweet sixteen was fantastic. Dave had everything running smoothly, from Heather's grand entrance and her dance with her Dad to the candle lighting ceremony, everything was on point. The dance floor was popping all night. Heather and her friends as well as the rest of the family had great time. Thank you Dave for providing much more than entertainment and giving us memories we will cherish forever.

    What can I say??! We booked Afino entertainment for our wedding. Let me start off by saying DJ Afino is the best at what he does. He is a really cool person and genuinely a nice guy. We are so glad we found him! Not only is he a great DJ, but he is also an amazing MC! Everyone was raving on how awesome the music and dancing was. He went above and beyond and he exceeded mine and my wife's expectations. He worked in a tricky mix of Johnny Cash, Oldies and new music/ remixes. He will personally see that he incorporates a personal style of music for your event. What are you still waiting for? BOOK HIM BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE DOES!

    Can we get married again?
    DJ Afino was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Dave truly made our reception stand out from the rest. From cocktail hour to our last dance we had THE BEST TIME! Unlike other receptions ours was broken into 3 different song sets where our guests were able to get up and dance throughout the night and throughout our sit down dinner.Dave was energetic throughout the whole night, he even jumped on the dance floor and danced with us. We had a custom entrance that he helped us orchestrate it was just perfect! We also had a custom monogram which Dave placed perfectly in our ballroom. At the end of the night he helped our guests all get together on the dance floor for a group photo (his idea which we loved). He even made a hilight video of the day which is something we have never seen from a DJ. I wish we were getting married again this weekend so we could do it all again. Thank you DJ Afino for making our wedding rock! We love You! Love Tony & Kym Lezotte

If you ever want to get married again, be sure to send me an invitation. You put so much time and effort into planning and preparing a memorable experience for all of your guests. I was impressed and touched by every little detail: The seating chart that your friend created and drew by hand for you; The custom photo booth backdrop featuring both of the football teams that you support and love; A place for guests to leave a message of support and encouragement; Your beautiful wedding cake; The most wonderful banquet hall location featuring a fantastic staff and delicious food; An incredibly stunning wedding dress, and of course.. Tony was dressed to impress and the smile on his face was priceless. Your love for one another was felt throughout the room, and your love for your friends and family was clearly evident in all that you did to make sure that they had an inspiring moment to remember forever. You even picked an incredible photography team! I've worked with them once before in Eatontown. It's always a pleasure to speak with them. They express a true desire to do an excellent job. It was a day I'll never forget. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I wish you and your family peace, love, happiness and continued success.

    Absolutely an amazing night because of DJ Afino
    My wedding was amazing and it's all thanks to DJ Afino! Dave gave my guest the time of their life. At the end of the night they kept asking me, where did you find him? He was phenomenal. He kept the guests moving all night! He was very kind and knew how to keep everyone entertained. He even made sure the end of the wedding was amazing and even instilled a great way to include everyone. Which was a great hit!! The booking process was seamless, easy as 1-2-3 and prior to the wedding event he walked me through the entire night which eased any stress I had about how the night would go. He had us fill out a format and took our music requests and built an awesome night based off of it. He did not miss a beat throughout the night. He definitely is very professional and you can see he loves to entertain. I would recommend using DJ Afino for any wedding or party need!

Your friends and family were full of energy, love and laughter. Your ceremony was beautiful. Hearing you both tear up during your vows was an indicator to me of how happy you two were that day. Your Grand Introductions were awesome. All of your guests were excited and enthusiastic. The energy was positive and uplifting all night. The Best Man got a little nervous, but he spoke from the heart! Your music selection was perfect, and the location you selected is one of my favorites. I've been there over 15 times now. They always do a wonderful job, and the food was delicious. It was an honor to be there to celebrate your special day with you and your family.

Everything looked gorgeous; including you and your guests of course. I was telling the Photo and Video team how wonderful it was to be there, and the reason being, because you had such a loving, supportive group of friends and family. It truly makes for a totally different experience when the friends and family are in good spirit. The two performances throughout the night were so memorable. Uncle Sonny singing "My Way" by Frank Sinatra while you danced with your grandfather is a moment I will never forget. Town & Country's Maître D' worked with me throughout the entire night to ensure that everything went smoothly. It was a perfect day for me, and I'm glad I was there to experience it with you and your family. Thank you so much! I wish you peace, love, happiness and continued success.

What a magnificent place to celebrate such a beautiful moment of your life. You had the perfect weather for a Ceremony outside in February! It was cold and snowing just 2 weeks prior. It's moments like this that show how powerful true love really is. I found out the following day that my great aunt Mary had passed away while I was at the wedding that night. It came as a surprise to all of us, and I couldn't help but remember how polite and accommodating your Maître D' was. Steven was an angel; professional from beginning to end. It was such a pleasure working with him, and it was truly a blessing to work with someone so polite and kind and for such an amazing couple while my Aunt watched from above. You two created a magical experience, for all of your guests and myself included. Thank you for all that you did. I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the recap video also.

    Thank you so much! Your wedding was unforgettable. The Black Bear Golf Club in Franklin, NJ was a beautiful location to have your winter wedding, and we even had some snow, which made for some really awesome photos! Your wedding officiant was excellent. He was one of the few this year I witnessed bring a very joyful, down-to-earth personality to the ceremony. It was great to meet and work with the Photo Booth vendor you hired. He was awesome, friendly, and had a great sense of humor. The photographer was great to work with as well. We had some people dancing here and there before dinner, between the first and second courses, and then after dinner the dance floor exploded. Those sing-along songs and Irish jig tracks, including the one from the Titanic movie, were perfect. Beginning to end, you had a wonderful day! Thank you so much for having me. I wish you two peace, love, happiness and continued success.

It was my first time visiting the Sand Castle in Long Island, New York, and I can't express enough how absolutely stunning every detail of your day was. First the outdoor ceremony. Such a beautiful setting. Your vows were majestic and poetic. Incredibly heart warming and commendable to say the least. All of the food was absolutely delicious including the cocktail hour, main course and viennese table. Your grand entrance into the room was unbelievable: a rotating wall, exposing both you and your names displayed on an LCD screen behind you, with in-house lighting dancing around the room and a sea of fog that seemed to appear out of thin air across the dance floor. It was absolutely incredible. It was such an honor to be there to celebrate your special day with you, your friends and family. I am humbled and honored to have met such a respectable, young couple who's affection will only grow deeper over time. I wish you both an eternity of peace, love, happiness and success.

    You Won't Find A Better DJ
    Words cannot begin to describe how incredibly happy we are with what he provided for our special day. Look no further for your wedding DJ, unless you are willing to spend two or three times the cost for the same quality equipment and services. I did extensive research on all of Dave's equipment, listed on his website, prior to hiring him. He knows his stuff! He owns the best gear, and charges way too little for how well of an entertainer he is. Not only is he an incredible DJ, he is also a very informative, down-to-earth, well mannered individual, and that stuck out to me the most when we met to discuss our wedding day together. He supplied an Entertainment Format, which made it easy to organize all of our music requests, and he was very easy to communicate with via email, phone and text. Being that we are very busy, and own our own businesses as well, this made planning the entertainment portion of our wedding as stress-free as possible, and we are truly grateful to him for considering this very important detail. The booking process was easy as cake. Everything was handled online, and again, made our wedding planning that much easier. One week before our day, Dave contacted us to review everything with us over the phone. It put my mind at ease that everything was going to go smoothly. He showed up 2-3 hours early to set up his equipment, and he was ready to go before the guests arrived at the ceremony, just as he promised. We were worried whether or not he could perform both the DJ and MC services as well as a two man team could, and he crushed our doubts with that as well! He did a fantastic job, both mixing music seamlessly and making announcements throughout the entire day, beginning with the ceremony and continuing on until the last minute of the night. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ, and at such an affordable cost. With the talent that he has, his prices are sure to rise within the next year. Dave (aka DJ AFINO): Thank you so much for making our day so special! Your energy was positive and uplifting, and your skills as an entertainer kept our guests dancing and singing the entire night. The equipment you provided looked great, and it sounded better than any other wedding I've attended. We are truly blessed and grateful to have found you here on robertavanesov.ru. You care so much about doing a stellar job, and it showed in every detail of our day. Thank you so much!

    This review just brought tears to my eyes. Thank you so much! One thing I always stress is that planning a wedding is not only successfully accomplished by having a great DJ, but also by the amount of communication that takes place between the DJ and the couple. You made it so easy for me to provide you with a memorable day. You were informative, organized, punctual and polite throughout the entire process. Thank you for showing that you cared just as much as I did (this isn't the case with some people, believe it or not). You picked such a beautiful location. You even picked other professionals that not only did a great job, but worked with me and cared just as much as I did. Being able to work with other people with the same level of experience changes everything. It made my job fun, and when I'm having that much fun, it's easier to entertain your guests. Also, I have to note that the food was delicious. You really planned and prepared for such an incredible experience for all of your friends and family. Thank you for leaving the best review I've ever received. This touched my heart in a way that I cannot express enough. Your feedback helps me to understand what I am doing right, and I will continue to do so in the best way possible. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I wish you both peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations, and God Bless!

It looked absolutely gorgeous. I especially loved that you chose "Walking On Sunshine" to exit back down the isle as husband and wife, setting the tone for an upbeat, fun-filled celebration. Your guests were loving, supportive, friendly and energetic. I caught your sister theatrically singing "Paradise By The Dashboard Lights" to a boy on the dance floor at the end of the night. It was awesome. You planned and prepared for such a wonderful day for all of your friends and family. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I wish you peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Stafford!

    Mixed Feelings
    To be honest we had a bit of a situation between the ceremony and the reception, where he misplaced his phone and then he freaked called he cops (I don't know how if he didn't have his phone). He didn't inform us that any of this was going on until we found him outside refusing to go back in until his phone was given back to him. Like why wouldn't he make an announcement that a phone was missing?! He thought the photographer stole it so he wanted the cops to search their car. Then it was discovered that someone turned a lost phone into the bartender. He then proceeded to pat down the bartender, who is our friend. In the end the phone was found because he left it in the bathroom. The situation was handled very unprofessionally, and quite honestly ruined my day a little bit. If he would have just came to us and said he misplaced it and would we mind if he made an announcement, we would have been understanding and helped him look for it. However, after the fiasco he did a good job as a DJ. Everyone loved him and had a really great time, and no one had any idea the fiasco even happened until we told them.
    DJ AFINO ツ. Oct 29, 2016

    I handled the situation as professionally as I could. I looked everywhere for 20 minutes, including the bathroom, and my vehicle. I was 2 hours south from home, in the middle of New Jersey, and yes, it freaked me out not having my pone, especially knowing that I had a wedding the very next day. I was not even sure of how to get back home from that location. As for the bartender, we walked over, and one of the guys said they found my phone. He looked for it, then pulled out one that was not mine. He said, "This must be the bartender's phone, and he must have your phone in his pocket." We proceeded to go to the back room, where he was located, and we asked him if he had my phone. He said, "It's at the bar. I have my phone in my pocket." I simply asked if I could see the phone in his pocket, because I thought he might be mistaken. He proceeded to tell us that he didn't have a phone in his pocket. I said, "Are you sure?" He said to me, "Do you want to pat me down or something?" I said, "May I please?" Then after I apologized to him, he told me to "Fuck off." I was never rude to anyone at your wedding. Also, your husband tried to punch me in the face outside. You were there. I apologized to both of you multiple times, and he stared me down, furious that I was searching for my lost phone. Then he moved forward to basically fight me physically, and 2 people had to hold him back... Are you serious? I've never met someone with so much anger toward someone trying to find something that they lost... And the reason I didn't tell you is because I didn't want to alarm you, or stress you out. I handled it in the most professional way possible, and like you said toward the end, you had an incredible wedding, and no one even knew what happened. People were dancing from beginning to end. Thanks for almost getting into a fist fight with me though over something that was lost, or perhaps stolen.

    GREATEST DJ EVER
    Dave (aka DJ Afino) was the DJ for my wedding at the Sussex County Fairgrounds last weekend. I am an extremely picky music person, and was searching for someone who would allow the music tastes of myself and my husband to be evident in the evening. Dave went to great lengths to customize our event, was extremely responsive and flexible, navigated all my anxieties about the music and flow of the event with patience and understanding, and kept true to our wishes. Not only was the music amazing, but Dave also emceed the wedding beginning with the ceremony and coordinated with the caterer and other vendors to make sure the evening continued to flow well. I cannot recommend Dave enough. His professionalism, knowledge of the business, and great taste are so far beyond average that he's on a level all his own. His prices are a ridiculous steal, and whomever hires him is extremely lucky. Thanks again, Dave! -Lauren & Bobby

    Thank you so much Lauren & Bobby! I don't know what to say. Your words are so kind and wonderful. It was an honor to be a part of your special day, and even more of an honor for you to leave such a wonderful review for me. It is very comforting knowing that I am doing a good job. I try my best to make the day as easy and stress-free as possible. You provided a perfect list of music for me to incorporate into the day, from beginning to end. It was amazing to witness a marriage between two people that have so much love and compassion for one another. Both of your families came together in such a harmonious way, and that is such a beautiful thing. Thank you for hiring me to entertain your guests and for hiring Stephanie as your photographer. I wish you both an eternity of peace, love, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Skrabal!

    My wife and I were looking for a DJ for our wedding and we found David on robertavanesov.ru. We had called 2 other DJ'also and made appointments to meet with all of them before making a decision, but after meeting David, we decided to go with him and cancelled the appointments with the other 2 DJ's. David made everything so easy,we gave him a list of songs we wanted played and believe me it's not easy mixing SPANISH /COUNTRY /ROCK/OLDIES/POP all mixed in together but DAVID pulled it off FLAWLESSLY. He was VERY PROFESSIONAL and he DEFINITELY KNOWS HIS MUSIC. We plan on using him for future family functions and events and we wouldn't hesitate recommending him. Bill&Julie Manning

    Thank you so much Nathan & Shannon! What an incredible day you had. To see so many friends and family members come from all over the world is something that always inspires me and brings joy to my heart. I have to admit that it was quite a challenge in the beginning trying to figure out how to please both American, English and Irish guests all at once, but we got them going, and then they were dancing and singing along throughout the rest of the night! I was extremely happy that a few of your guests came up to requests some other Irish Traditional Songs that I did not happen to know about. I was able to load them into my system from YouTube to include what they wanted to hear. You two have lots of support and love from your friends and family, and that means that you inspire each and every one of them. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your very special day. I wish you both peace, love, happiness and continued success!

Without your creativity, and positive energy, this would not have been possible. You two truly are a beautiful couple, and your love for one another inspires everyone. It was such an honor and pleasure to be a part of your special day. I absolutely loved that you included a live saxophone player during the ceremony and cocktail hour. The Russian Gypsy Dancer was a surprise that no one was expecting, and including the Fog Machine was the perfect way to spice up the Hava Nagila, the Dance Sets, and your dance together as a married couple toward the end of the night. Ending the night with sparklers outside was the perfect icing on the cake (and by the way, your wedding cake was delicious!). I wish you both an eternity of love, peace, happiness and continued success. Congratulations Mrs. & Mrs. Barsky!

    I gave Dave a tad bit of a difficult task. For my father-in-law's 50th birthday party I requested him to avoid inappropriate songs for my religious side of the family (which is about 85% of today's music). Dave did a wonderful job keeping the atmosphere up beat and satisfying for both sides of the party group. He was both professional and enthusiastic of his work which I greatly appreciated for our small crowd. I highly recommend Dave for your next party gathering, big or small!

    Dave was great from start to finish! I went onto robertavanesov.ru to get a ballpark on how much and what differences there were between dj services. I thought maybe I could use an MP3 player or iPod and had a horrible image of done tacky middle aged radio dj sounding totally corny all the way through my big day. I had a small 35 person wedding planned and I was staging the whole thing from out of town so I felt very lost. Dave said not to stress that he'd handle everything. He had a great format for me to pick songs from processional music, entrance songs, garter toss songs and everything in between. I thought that was good and felt pretty confident with what I chose but was pleasantly surprised that with his expertise and knowledge of the feel of all sizes and formats of weddings, Dave managed to add in and intuitively supplement the songs I'd listed to match music to make everyone in the room get up and dance. Everyone was impressed and I danced the night away! It was beyond perfect. Dave gave the party a great laid back feel and kept up with my pre- wedding long distance worries like a champ. We can't say enough positive things about Afino entertainment!

    I wish I could give more stars!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Everyone always tells you, when planning a wedding or big event, the music/DJ is the first most important decision and the close but second is the food. After speaking with a few DJs and researching them, DJ AFINO certainly was the most fit choice for us and our wedding. The single most aspect I was hung up on, was just wanting everyone to dance and have fun. Although we did give DJ AFINO some songs we wanted to hear, I also told him he's the DJ so "you do you!" Lol We gave him an idea of who we are in music and time periods, but I wanted the dj to read the crowd. I can not put into words, how happy we are about choosing DJ AFINO for our wedding. Both of our families stayed on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG!! No one wanted the night to end!! He is such is personable and fun DJ who looked as if he was enjoying the night as well. It's great that he is affordable and awesome at the same time. Still, after a few days from our wedding people are still talking about how great and nice he was along with how great of a DJ he was and how much fun ppl had. If you're looking for someone who helped give life to your party kept ppl dancing, then DJ AFINO is the one. I wish I could throw another party just so I could keep dancing!! I def will be recommending him to my cousins and other family and friends who might need a DJ. Thank you so much for such a memorable wedding party!!

From your ceremony, to the cocktail hour and reception, the vibes I felt from your guests were nothing but love, inspiration and joy. It's weddings like these that remind me how blessed I am to be a part of someone's special day. Thank you for allowing me to celebrate with you and your family.

    DJ Afino was amazing for the #Phantangstic wedding! The highest praise I can provide goes to him. He was professional, prompt, helpful, and produced a quality product for my wedding. My wife and I felt that, without a doubt, David had the success of our wedding as his utmost and important priority. Never once did we feel as though he did anything in the favor of anything else--even prioritizing our wedding over his own interests. He played our music, he rocked the party, and he provided a beautiful (and non-invasive) lighting for our party. He edited the songs properly and ensured that our guests had one hell of a party to remember. Absolutely nothing went wrong, and so with that there is no doubt that for all our future events, we are recommending AFINO for everything/anything. He's a great guy with a great personality and prices that are so low it's criminal to see that other DJs offer so much less for so much more in price. David, Lily and I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors. If you continue to churn out success and an entertainment product like you did for us on Oct 10, then you will be having a VERY busy career. Thank you for being a part of our perfect day, and being the perfect DJ, MC, Lighting, and overall helpful person for our wedding

    We hired DJ Alfino for our daughters sweet 16 party. From the first contact to the night of the event DJ Alfino was fantastic. He made sure that my daughters party was exactly the way she wanted it, the music was perfect, the lighting awesome. The guest were dancing the entire time. During the candle lighting ceremony we gave him discretion to play whatever he thought appropriate for each candle lite, my daughter commented that his was spot on with the music he choose for each person. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the night so special. We will definitely make sure he is part of our next event. You are awesome !!

    Thank you so much Debbie! That means so much to me :) Your party was off the hook. All of Sarah's friends were awesome. They requested some tracks I didn't have, and I loaded them using my phone plugged into the mixer so they could dance to some Jersey Club tracks from their Soundcloud pages. And I have to admit, those chocolate truffles Sarah made were Out Of This World Delicious! I don't even know how I'm going to eat all of these. I'm going to be depressed when they're gone lol Thank you so much for having me be a part of her special celebration, and thank you for the positive feedback!

    would have been 5 but he did miss about half the songs the bride & groom requested.

    Every one of your requested songs were played. I vividly remember making sure I played every song on your list, and I remember looking up and seeing that half the room was outside smoking cigarettes. And the bathroom smelled of cigarette smoke all night. You can't expect to hear all of your requested songs if you and your guests like to smoke cigarettes frequently. I also had to play other songs your guests were requesting to keep them entertained. I'm a bit disappointed by this review, but thank you for your feedback.

    afino entertainment was the best DJ I have EVER had. He played the music for my wedding ceremony and also my reception. Our wedding was put together in the matter of 5 weeks so on very short notice our wonderful dj drove 2+ hours. He kept the party on the dance floor. All night (5 hours) there wasn't an empty dance floor. He even enjoyed himself on the dance floor a few times almost as much as he enjoyed the chocolate moose cups. He played a ton of music, even music he didn't have he found it on the spot. I was very pleased with the fantastic job he did. I will most definitely be contacting DJ afino for my future events. Thanks so much for making our night special. The fortney family

    Good afternoon Carrie. Thank you for your feedback. I'd like to inform you that every client of mine is notified that I wear a t-shirt and jeans to set up and breakdown my equipment in. This prevents my dress clothes or tuxedo from being ruined from getting on my knees to install wires and it also prevents getting my dress clothes wet from sweat. Unfortunately I don't own multiple tuxedos at this time, so I need to protect my uniform the best I can to perform multiple events in a row, Thursday through Sunday. I appreciate your feedback, as I do all feedback from my clients, but you can see the bride's review directly below this review, and she was very happy with everything. Thank you for your review.

    Well I can't say enough about Dave, what an amazing job. Thank you Dave. He kept the party going and we had a problem with the schedule he did everything he could to help us, if not for Dave my daughter's sweet 16 would not have gone as smooth as it did (we even went past the time and he managed to help us by being available an extra half ssn hour..last minute notice). She had a court of 20 people, and shoes exchange, candle ceremony and he announced each event so amazingly. There were problems we had to start late and he helped get everything done accordingly. We Had problems with the schedule list but he was able to make arrangements right on spot and help us get it all done. The party was a really big event and all planned in less than two months. With Dave we had about a week notice to him and I did not think it would have gone as well and beautiful as it did. Dave you saved us and the party. I can't thank you enough and I will call you for every event... with plenty of time... I promise. My daughter and her friends loved your energy, your help, your announcements and how you made each event so well announced and special. Thank you I'm forever your client.

I spoke with you both throughout the night to determine if everything was okay, and I was never informed of your dissatisfaction. If you would have told me about your disappointments, I could've done something then and there to change or fix what you did not like at the time. I do recall the music skipping during dinner due to a hardware malfunction, and I worked diligently upon notification to fix the issue, and it did not happen for the rest of the night.

    Look no further for your NYC wedding DJ! DJ Afino is the best! Dave was our DJ for our May 3rd wedding at the New York Botanical Garden. My fiance and I are quite picky about music and we loved him and got great compliments about the music. First of all, from start to finish, he is a reliable professional. Extraordinarily attentive and easy to talk to. He makes himself available to talk about any of your wedding details and always responds promptly and thoughtfully. He was a pleasure to work with, affordable for NYC and really delivered. He brings the party! His equipment and mixing skills are excellent. He provided the sound and equipment for our outdoor wedding ceremony, our cocktail hour in a separate tent and in the ballroom for the reception. The sound all day was excellent. He provides an entertainment form that helps make sure you give him all the details you need for the special songs you want and when they're being played (processional, recessional, first dance, parent dances, etc.). He follows up on everything with you too. He is on top of what he's doing. He even asked me exactly when in the song I wanted my processional song to start when I walked down the aisle. I loved his attention to detail. During the reception, people were on the dance floor all night! We provided glow sticks for the last hour of dancing and he had awesome lights to project on the ceilings and it just made for an incredible dance party. Friends told me they hadn't danced that hard in a long time. Seriously, don't even worry about looking any further. Call Afino Entertainment, book DJ Afino and you'll have a blast! Thank you, Dave!

    We used David Brennan of Afino Enternainment for my daughter's sweet 16 and oh, what a party! He got everyone up dancing. Everyone had a great time. Thanks, Dave - you rock! I would highly recommend DJ Afino.

    Dave was amazing at our daughter's 10th birthday party! He kept the kids engaged and happy! I would hire him again in a heart beat. He was friendly, professional and fun! Thank you Dave. Looking forward to seeing you at our son's communion party this spring!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our pricing is displayed on our website. Contact us by phone or email for more information. We're happy to help you put together a package that works best for you.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is to gather and assess your event information. This can be accomplished using the contact form located on our website or by giving us a call. The booking process is completed online. Our invoice page processes payments through PayPal. We also accept checks sent by mail. We provide an Entertainment Format so that you can organize and submit your music, special requests and important event details. We schedule Format Reviews on Monday and Tuesday, the week of your event date. Reviewing your event with you a few days prior keeps it fresh in our mind and gives us the ability to speak with you one last time before preparation. We prepare your music and special requests on Wednesday and Thursday.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We've worked with a large, diverse group of individuals. We travel 50-100 miles from Fort Lee, New Jersey to the surrounding area. There is no discrimination to what style of music we can play. We're familiar with various different genres from the 50's to today.
