A FEW KIND WORDS...
DJ Elissa was fantastic! We knew we wanted to avoid the overbearing DJ that played all the stereotypical tracks, and Elissa delivered on that and then some. From the very first conversation, she was totally on top of things and easy to work with. She took the time to understand our music tastes, understand our crowd, and understand the vibe we wanted. The day and night of, she was subtle and professional, kept everything moving along, and played an unbelievable mix that perfectly represented everything we talked about. It's been 2 months since the wedding and we still get comments from our friends and family about how great the music was! Elissa made our night even more incredible than we had hoped! - Dylan & Steven
DJ Gabe was an absolute joy to work with. We had at least three calls and one meeting in person leading up to our big day and he provided a very handy spreadsheet that we had plenty of time to fill out to be sure "must plays" and "no plays" were all covered. On our big day he did a great job with announcements and moving things along in a timely fashion. He had all of our guests on the dance floor from the moment it opened until closing time. Would highly recommend Gabe and Green Line talent to anyone looking for a great party! - Katie & Rob
When my husband and I met four years ago, one of our initial attraction points was our shared passion for music. After becoming engaged, we knew that music would play an important part of our wedding; as such, we sought out a DJ that could energize the crowd through strategic song selections, rather than through interruptive emceeing. Looking back, it feels like Elissa was made for us. Throughout the process, Elissa was undoubtedly the most responsive vendor we worked with. She took time to work through each step of the reception with us, providing her feedback from prior experience, but allowing us to set the tone from a creative standpoint. The night of our wedding, we were blown away at what we heard; Elissa seamlessly worked in our eclectic song requests, but was able to read the crowd enough to keep all attendees happy. In the weeks following our wedding, we received numerous compliments on Elissa’s set, specifically her keen ability to gauge the crowd and get everyone up on the dance floor. Elissa is highly organized, thoughtful and responsive. She played an integral role in the success of our wedding night, and we can’t recommend her enough! - Katie & Sam
Zach is a professional and talented DJ. His in depth-knowledge of music theory and audio equipment shines through in not only his performances, but also in his ability to assess any problematic situations that may occur during the setup of equipment. I have played numerous shows with Zach, and each time he was on-time, quick to setup, and a joy to be around. He knows how to take his job seriously while also having and providing a good time. Unlike some DJs, he is very open to any music that you want played at your event, and will customize/tune any performance to your liking. Zach will make sure that your event is not only successful, but also special and joyous. - Dustin
Green Line Talent and DJ Kyle are wonderful! Our wedding was at Lacuna Artist Lofts in mid-August. We needed to find a DJ to provide music for our ceremony, a microphone for our officiant, and music for our cocktail hour that were held on the rooftop, then music for our reception inside. Green Line Talent was so responsive and reasonably priced when we were looking for a DJ. About a month before our wedding, we met with DJ Kyle to discuss our music taste and share ideas of songs we wanted played during different parts of the event. DJ Kyle did an amazing job of reading the room and kept the dance floor busy all night! - Alyson & Michael
DJ Kyle rocked my best friend's wedding! Although I am a DJ myself, the bride refused to allow me to work on the night of her wedding, so of course I was so relieved that Kyle was such a tasteful, professional, and FUN DJ to keep us moving all night long! There were a lot of last-minute change-ups the day of the wedding due to weather issues, (we were basically caught in a monsoon!), and Kyle ended up hitting all of his cues without skipping a beat. He had every member of the bridal party's names listed out phonetically, and he even worked in a special original song that the groom wrote for the cake cutting! Kyle managed to work in all of the classic hits, but also demonstrate some of the groom's more obscure tastes during cocktail hour and dinner. So glad to have Kyle as a part of our roster! - Elissa P. owner of Green Line Talent
We worked with DJ Elissa, and she was easy to work with, always responded to emails or calls in a timely manner, and when it came time for our wedding, she did a terrific job. We gave her a sense of what kind of music we wanted, and did not want, and she took that guidance and turned it into exactly what we wanted on the day of our wedding. Everybody at the wedding was asking who the DJ was and where we found her, and we are still getting compliments today. We particularly liked her laid back and professional approach. We would recommend Elissa without reservation. - Alexandra & Jonathan
DJ Elissa was so great—excellent communication, helped us figure out timing for everything, worked well with the venue and our other vendors, and set everything up seamlessly. She was also great at announcing speeches and stuff like that, but didn’t make her presence the focus of the attention. We also thought it was just plain cool to have a young, hip woman as our DJ. We got so many compliments on the music too! Many of the older guests noted their appreciation that the music wasn’t too loud for them, and the younger guests commented on how good the song choices were. Even some of the staff told us they really appreciated the music, and one specifically thanked us for not making them “listen to Lady Gaga for the 80th time” (we avoided top 40 in general). Our photographer literally said it was “the best” music out of all the weddings she’s ever shot! - Leah & Darren
After our venue, my wife and I probably spent the most time looking for DJs. We are both music-lovers, and it was very important to us to have a DJ who would reflect our tastes. We ended up working with DJ Elissa, who was an absolute joy from start to finish. After an initial interview, I provided her with some sample songs and the timeline of the wedding and let her get to work. The best way to save yourself stress and headaches when wedding planning is to find a professional whose work you like, and put your trust in them. Elissa was absolutely fantastic at our wedding, from timing the processional to getting everyone on the dance floor to dealing with those sudden scheduling changes that are bound to happen. I honestly cannot recommend her enough, and neither can anyone who was at my wedding – without a doubt, the music was the first thing people commented on! - Mark & Kristin
We worked with DJ Mike for our senior prom, and he rocked the house! Even some of the teachers were out on the floor, which is somewhat of a modern miracle. Mike was great with mixing songs together in an interesting way, and always keeping us on our toes by switching up the beat. He adhered to our list of must-play songs, and made sure not to play any sappy slow songs as we requested! We whole-heartedly recommend DJ Mike for your next big event! - Jenny K., St.
We hired Elissa immediately after we met with her in person. She was so professional, yet approachable and was super flexible with us. We met with her in person twice before the wedding to consult with her about our approach to music and our vision for the day. The day of the wedding was a blur but I do remember that our dance floor was PACKED all night. And one of our music snob friends commented that it was the best music he’s ever heard at a wedding, hands down. She did a great job of listening to our wants/desires and bringing them to life to create a very memorable evening! I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to plan a wedding. - Renee & Dave
We loved working with Elissa for our wedding. She was really easy to talk to about our music preferences – no judgements! – and she had great recommendations for what to play for an intergenerational crowd. We had a blast at our wedding dancing to the music she played — and several guests complimented us on the quality of the DJing afterwards. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend! - Nate & Rebecca
We spent two months looking for the perfect DJ and ended our search as soon as we met Elissa. She is the most professional, responsive, and down to earth DJ in the city. Initially, based on her mixes, we unsure if she would be willing to play some of the floor fillers we craved (we were concerned that her sound was a little too indie for the type of dance party we wanted), but she more than delivered and went above and beyond the call of duty to make all of our desires met (even borrowing equipment from friends to make our 3 set-ups possible). Our live performers loved working with her too and our parents cannot stop talking about the best night of their lives. She had everyone in the room dancing until midnight and after the "Last Dance," she even indulged my mom's desire to hear one last romantic song. I cannot speak highly enough of her. I have never seen so many people dancing non-stop on the dance floor to fantastic beats. A total pro with fantastic taste and an amazing vibe! - Zach & Alex
DJ Elissa did a fantastic job for our wedding and my wife and I could not have been more pleased with the end results. From meeting with us prior to the wedding and getting to know us personally and helping create a great song list with our input, Elissa really got the overall vibe we were hoping to create for our big day. I would not hesitate to recommend her for anyone hoping to have some great entertainment for their wedding or any other event. She will keep the party moving at a good pace make sure everyone is having fun, highly recommended. - Ken & Amelia
We (well, really, my wife) hired Green Line Talent to DJ our wedding. Not only was our DJ, Elissa a regular badass, she even worked in a special karaoke section so my best man could perform a Boys II Men song!"
Elissa put in the time with us and go to know our musical tastes and our idea of how the night would flow, music-wise. When everything came together on the wedding day, Elissa and her crew were there promptly to set everything up, making it really easy on us. The music was awesome! It felt like we were at our own private club and the dj had some vulcan mind-lock on our music requests. Elissa just got "us" and we couldn't have done it without her.
I highly recommend Green Line Talent, and ask for Elissa if you want an amazing DJ!! - Jason & Amanda
The DJ John Norman made my wedding day such a blast! First I got put together with John after talking to Elissa who was so patient with me as I am very particular about music. She suggested John and working with him was a blast!
First off he offered to meet my Fiance and I to talk through the music and what info we needed to give him. He also ended up giving us so much helpful advice for planning at the meeting. He was friendly and personable but always remained professional.
He was really great at the event about checking in with me about when I wanted thing sto happen etc. He actually I think did a lot more work than our Day of Coordinator to be honest She kinda dropped the ball but he would just come over with a smile and ask about when we wanted to do the speeches/dances/etc.
The dancing was the best part! He was great about keeping the floor moving! I had given him a list and he was good about balancing songs I wanted (I think there were a few songs where only I was dancing! but he knew I wanted them haha) and what he knew the crowd wanted.
I could go on and on about John because I really want to do him justice because he really gave so much energy to our wedding and our music and I'm so grateful for that! Pick John from Greenline for your wedding and you will not be disappointed. Thanks John! - Liz & Mihai
Zach was awesome! He listened to our suggestions and played excellent music. We let Zach have more freedom during dinner, and his choices were perfect. He was on time, very professional, and managed the speeches and timing impeccably. - Tyler & Angie
My beautiful wife and I were married in May of 2015. When it came time to hire a DJ, Kyle was our first choice. He did an amazing job as the DJ at my brother's wedding a year before mine. Kyle was professional from the start. He sent us a questionnaire that went over our musical preferences and many other details about our big day. Kyle was always responsive to phone calls and emails, and we met in person a few weeks before the wedding to finalize everything. Planning a wedding ourselves was hectic at times, so it was great when Kyle would proactively reach out to us with questions or reminders. Kyle also worked with our caterer on some logistical issues. Kyle arrived to our wedding dressed better than many guests, especially my weird uncles. Kyle is a confident MC. I can't imagine how the ceremony and the rest of the night would have been without him. Managing my family is like herding cats, but Kyle kept the party moving. While keeping our tastes in mind, he played a wide range of songs that appealed to our diverse group of guests. The quality of Kyle's audio system was top notch. I can't say enough good things about Kyle. He is an excellent musician, so DJing comes naturally to him. He was great to work with and he made sure our wedding was a night to remember. - Michael & Jessie
Zach DJed for an event I held at the end of this past summer. The show was a mini music festival where we had bands alternating between 2 stages all day. Zach was exceptional in many ways: he was enthusiastic and always wanting to help, he was reliable and easy to reach, he was present for the entire day and an integral part of our sound team, and both of his sets that night got people smiling and dancing. Zach has great taste in music and his artistic decisions are expertly crafted. I'm looking forward to working with him in the future! -Mallory
BEST DJ EVER!! I can go on and on at how amazing John was throughout the whole wedding planning process and for our actual reception. All night long our guests were coming up to us saying that he was the best DJ they had ever heard, let alone at a wedding, and how his blends were awesome. He truly went out of his way to make sure I (the bride) was happy as well as our guests. He really took the time to know exactly what type of music we wanted to hear and blew everyone away with is talent!
We chose Green Line Talent for our wedding and DJ Geoff did a great job. He was responsive throughout the planning process, working hard to put together the music mixes for the different parts of our day that were spot on to our tastes and preferences. We knew that our reception wasn’t going to be an all-out dance party and Geoff worked with us to create a music selection that fit the vibe – and, when the evening inevitably got a bit more dancey Geoff read the room appropriately and mixed up the music to fit. On the day of, Geoff was professional but had a good time, especially when making announcements for the bingo and lottery activities we had planned, which made them even more fun. Geoff was a true partner who understood our vision and had the necessary attention to detail to help us manage the event timeline. - Matt & Samantha
Zach has performed at numerous events at my establishment and has improvised well with other artists on stage under short notice. He has demonstrated in-depth knowledge of music theory and audio through his ability to smoothly adapt to different types of performance. His eclectic DJing is as engaging as his performance as a solo synth and electronic artist. Zach has always been prompt, professional and encouraging to work with.
My husband and I had the best DJ ever, John Norman!! We danced the night away along with our guests, which is exactly what we wanted! He made sure that every moment throughout the evening was perfectly seamless. We would highly recommend him! Thank you John for helping make our wedding a night that we will ALWAYS remember!
I use DJs for my yoga company and Elissa was a GREAT find! I worked with her when I was hired by a corporate sponsor to produce a very large event. I had really specific needs in terms of music and Elissa offered me many options to choose from. In our consultation meeting, Elissa was incredibly attentive and promptly followed up with a sample playlist for me to listen to. She was responsive to my notes and ended up creating the perfect end product that included some great music I had never heard of (perfect for the event). At the event she was early to set up, efficient, friendly, professional, and very calm when she had to trouble shooting for the wireless mic we were using for class (not part of the job description). During the class she was responsive to my cues, flawlessly tailoring the music to exactly match the mood of the class - very important for people taking yoga. I would highly recommend her for any events. - Angelica Olstad of Pop Up Yoga NYC
Green Line is my go-to for all my corporate holiday parties. As a high-end event planner, I know I can rely on them to impress my most discerning clientele. The audio quality is always pristine, and their DJs always turn up looking neat, professional and organized. I've thrown them in all kinds of spaces from giant ballrooms, to sprawling lounges, (we even did an event in an ice skating rink), and they always manage to make my vision work, without the need for micromanagement. In my line of work, having one less thing to worry about is a major boon. Green Line Talent rocks! - Grace T., Special Event Planner
My husband and I were very insistent on staying on budget for our May 2015 wedding. This proved to be a hard task as my taste is not cheap. We had heard some great things about Green Line Talent, specifically their DJ Kyle. He was everything you could ask for in a DJ and more. Kyle is professional, knowledgable and easy on the eyes for all of your single friends. He knew exactly the vibe I was looking to create for my wedding and executed it perfectly. When planning a wedding, every decision you make feels like the most important decision in the world. I am so glad we went with Kyle and Green Line Talent. It's one decision you won't have to worry about. - Jessica T.
DJ Elissa was one of my favorite parts of my whole wedding! Right from the get go before the wedding she was amazing. She sat with my (then) fiancé and really spent time to find out what kind of a wedding we were having, what kind of vibe we wanted, what kind of music we wanted and what the guests would be expecting. She asked all the right questions and took notes. On top of that, she was cool, like, I kinda want to just hang out with you cool. She was a total pleasure to work with! The day of the wedding she was a complete Rockstar. I can not even count how many compliments we got on the music! She read the crowd like a magician and was somehow able to make the night flow along beautifully! I did not have a wedding coordinator and feel like without Elissa that would have been impossible but she was always there following along with the schedule we discussed beforehand making it all just happen. Everything was PERFECT! I seriously am such a lucky lucky girl for scoring such an AMAZING gal to DJ such a big night of my life. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH ELISSA!!!! - Jill & AJ
We used Green Line Talent for our wedding day and from the start they was professional, kind, prompt, friendly, and very open to hearing what we envisioned for our day. DJ Elissa worked with us in the months leading up to the wedding and each contact with her met and exceeded our expectations! The week of the wedding there was a small bump and Elissa offered and found an easy solution, which I really appreciated in all the last minute craziness! On the day of the wedding she was able to handle an “unpredictable” guest in a professional manner and stuck to what my husband and I had wanted for our day. I highly recommend her for your wedding! - Liz & German
We wanted our wedding soundtrack to have a cocktail/dinner/dance party vibe and a mix of a lot of different types of music. Elissa was great from start to finish. She was professional, friendly, communicative and flexible. The music was right on, and Elissa nailed it. We couldn’t have been more pleased, and our guests had a blast. We even extended the event an hour so we could squeeze more dancing in. We have and will recommend DJ Elissa to everyone we can. - Charlie & Kevin
I used Green Line Talent for a product launch party last month, and they knew just what to do to instill a cool cocktail party lounge vibe, which can be a tough thing to pull off at 4:00PM! A lot of our guests had just come off of international flights, so we were worried about everyone's energy level, but DJ Nate was able to read the crowd and keep everyone feeling energized, without being obnoxious. His announcements were clear and confident, without being "show-boat"y, and he helped us to keep everything right on schedule. We highly recommend DJ Nate & Green Line Talent! - Chris C.
