Dear Butch,
We could not have been happier with how our wedding went in large part due to your efforts as DJ. The party and dance floor really got going which was exactly what we wanted and you fit in a lot of our faves. Who knew the Cha Cha Slide would be such a hit?! You read the crowd really well and knew what to play to get folks on the dance floor…which meant a really great party for us! So thank you again. And you are just an all around nice guy who is a calming presence when things get a little hectic!

Dear Butch,
Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job at our Wedding Ceremony and Reception. I was worried that most of our guests weren’t really dancers, so I was very happy to see the dance floor full the whole time! We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know who is looking for a DJ.

Dear Butch,
Thank you so much for the wonderful job taht you did at our reception. Our biggest fear going into the wedding was that no one would dance due to the size of the dance floor. We should never have doubted it because you had everyone dancing all night long. Once the first song played and you got everyone got up, my mind was at ease and the rest of the reception was care-free and so much fun.

You have a wonderful talent and you are a true pleasure to work with. We would love to serve as a reference anytime and hopefully we will have an occasion in the future where you can be our D.J. Thank you again for everything!

June 5th, 2004- Patty Sidlovsky

Hi Butch,
We were extremely satisfied with the music, and you personally, at our daughter’s wedding! Joanne and Josh had their own ideas on what they wanted and they were very pleased with your handling of their taste and music. Al was thrilled with the polkas and I danced every dance!! Thanks so much. We’ll see you in November at the LeBlond wedding, if not sooner.

– Patty

April 2002- Tim Hanlon

I’m sorry its taken me so long to write back – you DJ’ed our wedding April 12 at the Barney.
I wanted to thank you – everything was very well done. And I want to thank you for sticking around way past our agreed time – even after some extenuating circumstances, clothes changing, etc, etc – to play the last song of the night for me and my bride. I’d recommend you to anyone.

Thanks again, Tim Hanlon.

December 2001 – Ms. Lynn Bailey, MTU Aero Engine Design

I wanted to thank you for your excellent service, professionalism and your assistance! I’ve had many comments – all favorable regarding the music you played, how you were able to work with the crowd in addition to your involvement. We are in the process of booking our Christmas Party for 2002, at the Saint Clements Castle. Once I receive a date, I would like to reserve you as well! (Professionally speaking, of course!)

Mit Freundlichen Gruessen / Kind Regards.

October 6, 2001 – Vicki and Linda

We both want to thank you so very much for being at our party! You are great and it was great to see you again. We will never forget what you did for us. You made our night of celebration filled with fun and love. We cannot tell you how much your support of our Union meant to us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank you.

May 26, 2001 – Rebecca and Jim Petitti

Jim and I would like to thank you so very much for making our wedding such a wonderful day! Everyone had comments on how you were such an excellent D.J. All the requests that we went over were all taken care of. Thank you!

Please don’t hesitate to have anyone contact us with any questions they might have. We would be happy to share our experience with them.

April 2001 – Donna and Sean Walstedt

What a blast!! You are without a doubt one of the best d.j.’s I have ever seen!! The entrance was one to remember!! Sean and I are still talking about you. All the guests commented on how great you were!

Thanks so much for working with us and making our day tons of fun.

February 10, 2001 – Dwayne and Lydia Messerschmidt

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, now collectively one, for being such a wonderful part of our wedding day.

You certainly made it that much more special to us. We were pleased to find such a fun-loving and easy going “Ring master” to help us create the perfect soundtrack to our special day.

Thank you so very much,

June 12, 2000 – Jen and Russ Neale

We would just like to thank you for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. The music was great and all your behind-the-scenes help made the day go very smoothly.

Feel free to use us as a reference. We would highly recommend you (as a matter of fact, we’ve done so already!).

One more funny thing. Besides seeing Dave Uliasz at our wedding, apparently you were the DJ at Shelley Watson and Ken Creutz’s wedding two summers ago. (at Lord Thompson Manor). We thought their DJ was great, but didn’t know it was you until after our wedding (Shelley told me last week).

Thanks again.

May 9, 2000 – Alicia and Adam Gove

We want to thank you for your outstanding job as a Disc Jockey. You not only crated a fun atmosphere at our wedding, but you also guided us through the months before our wedding. You were always on top of our details, which made us feel like we were the only wedding reception you were doing from the time we got engaged to the day of our wedding. As you know, we didn’t want to choose all of our music for the reception. We wanted to feel comfortable allowing our Disc Jockey to “go with the flow of the guests at our reception. We had complete confidence in you and you absolutely came shining through!

On May 6, 2000 you helped make our dream wedding reception a reality. We dreamt that both sides of our families and our friends would enjoy our reception. We needed music to break the age barrier between all, and you did that. Relatives and friends who we had never seen dance at any other function were up and dancing! The entire reception ran smoothly because you were so organized. You also communicated well with us from the beginning to the end of our reception.

Throughout the night we received many compliments on your behalf. We even have friends who plan on booking you for their wedding now! We will never hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future. Thank you for all you have done for us. We believe that music makes the party and believe us…you made the party with your music. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day, but especially the reception. Thank you again!

July 1999 – Carrie and Jim Czapiga

Thank you so much for DJing our wedding. You did a great job and we really appreciated it. We will recommend you to anyone who asks us for suggestions.

Chris and I want to thank you so much for performing at our reception. We appreciated all of the time you spent with us preparing, especially the trip to Borders.

Thanks again!

October 12, 1998 – Beth Paige and Mike Alogna

We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did at our wedding. Mike and I are still hearing praise about the music. You out did yourself. Along with Mike and my awesome friends and family you put the icing on the cake. We will be sure to recommend you to others.

Thank you,

August 1998 – Alan and Stephanie Clark

We want to thank you again for a day of great music. Our guests are still complimenting you on the great job you did and on your terrific personality. We truly appreciated the fact that you were willing to come out to our place for a house call.

You are great at your job! We loved your style and sense of humor and only wished the day could have lasted longer.

Thanks again and take care!

September 13, 1997 – Natalie and Bob Heleniak

We wanted to personally “Thank you” for the excellent job done at our wedding on September 13th. You were able to get people up to dance that we hadn’t seen dance for years. You were also very friendly and courteous to both our family and friends. A true professional in our minds. You really made our day one of the happiest and fun-filled days of our lives.

Thanks again.

October 20, 1996 – Bruce and Kim Abate

August 17, 1996 – Chet and Mona

Mona and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did for our wedding on August 17th. We had a great time. You were a very big part of our wedding’s success. We knew you were going to be a fun DJ when you shouted out the Rublewski’s have entered Connecticut.

We can’t thank you enough, Butch. It was comforting knowing that the reception was in good hands. We also want to thank you for all the suggestions that you mailed to us during the months before the wedding.

May 1994 – Lisa and Luciano Perez

We would like to thank you for everything. Everybody enjoyed themselves dancing all night long. A big thanks for staying an extra hour at the last minute.

You were great. Got a lot of compliments.


September 30, 1993 – Richard M. DiNinni, Assistant – Nutmeg State Games, E. Hartford, Connecticut

The 1993 Nutmeg State Games saw close to 6,000 of Connecticut’s best amateur athletes compete in 30 different sports. The Opening Ceremonies, though rescheduled due to inclement weather, were immensely successful and finals week competition ran smoothly under sunny skies.

This was all made possible by people like yourselves who donated your time and expertise to make the entertainment portion of Opening Ceremonies enjoyable to athletes, coaches, parents, spectators and all others involved in the festivities.

We would like to congratulate you on a job well done and also wish to express our sincere thanks and gratitude for all your efforts on behalf of the Nutmeg State games.

We hope to have your continued support in the future and good luck in all of your future entertainment endeavors. Thanks again!

June 28, 1993 – ACES Village School, North Haven, Connecticut

On behalf of the A.C.E.S. Parent Association I would like to sincerely thank you for the time and talent that you donated to our association on April 23, 1993 for our annual Spring Fling Dance. The music that you provided for us was just wonderful. There was a good mixture of oldies, line dances and more modern selections.

Your gift has enabled us to take a larger portion of the proceeds from the dance and apply them towards things that will benefit A.C.E.S. students, such as the student prom.

Please, know that your generosity to our association as well as to our students is greatly appreciated.

November 12, 1992 – Brenda Kowalski, President, Farmington Junior Women’s Club

The Farmington Junior Women’s Club wishes to thank you for the donation of your services at our function on July 29, 1992. Your generosity allowed us to make a donation to the Connecticut Junior Women’s State Project, the Pediatric Pulmonary Unit at the UCONN Health Center.

It is through donations such as yours that allows our club to raise money for charitable causes. Once again, we thank you.
