Staar entertainment testimonial

"Dear John,
Thank you for your expertise in making the event for the Li family immensely pleased with the music, dancing and your personal brand of unbelievable entertainment. I am grateful for your professionalism and camaraderie that helped execute a very special celebration. Should you find yourselves in need of event design assistance or party planning for any of your clients, please give me a call!"

 I have used John's services for several years for various Fundraisers, and for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah and upcoming Sweet 16 party. People still talk about my daughter's Bat Mitzvah and it truly was because John knew how to keep the party alive. He is not only a DJ but a true entertainer who knows how to keep a room dancing and the evening flowing. He is truly in the business because he loves doing it. When I host a party, I want people dancing and to have a great time. He knows exactly what I want because he listens to his customers. He is extremely professional but more importantly, he truly does care. He genuinely wants to be sure that his customers are pleased.  I absolutely adore John and he has become a part of our family.  Hands down he is the best in town!

They were amazing at our Gala this past weekend. I did not have to worry about a thing and our program went off without a hitch. The after party music was fun, upbeat, and they even had music videos playing which added a fun element!! We are going to book them again as soon as our next date is set!

Our family had one of the best nights of our lives at our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. The DJ really makes the party and John Wendelken had everyone on their feet the entire night. We have heard from so many of our guests how much they enjoyed that night. Our younger daughters have already hired him for their parties in future years. In addition to making the evening a total blast he was very helpful with planning and other support services, such us getting us arranged with a photo booth and lighting for the room.

                                                  - Mary Collier


John and his team truly made my Mom's 70th surprise party outstanding. Guests have not stopped talking about it and my mom had the best celebration. From playing the best music, to getting our crowd dancing, and to Emceeing the night - he was amazing. In addition, the planning and coordination was seamless and the entire team helped us create one fantastic party. This was my second time using Staar Entertainment and it will most certainly not be my last.

                                          - Jaime Marco


Whenever I have arranged celebrations for the JCC and when I needed a great DJ for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah, I have always hired Staar Entertainment because they go above and beyond to make every celebration incredible! The entire planning process was easy and fun from start to finish because of the experience level of their entire team. I am still getting compliments that they were the "heart" of my daughter's celebration. Staar Entertainment does things no one else does. They brought technology and celebration enhancements for my daughter and her mitzvah theme on the screen: Kahoot!, Live Slideshow, Live Camera, Just Dance - It just never stops! There's no other DJ company that is even close to offering all of this excitement! When it comes to booking entertainment, I have seen it all! And If you ask me how to make your celebration the best it could be, I will tell you to call Staar Entertainment!

wedding testimonial

“I had worked with John Wendelken at Hunter’s Green Country Club and LOVED his work ethic, attention to detail and friendship he gave.  I remember thinking that when I was choosing someone to run the music at my ceremony, it had to be the right person……it was too important of a moment.  Can you imagine?  Walking down the isle, a once in a lifetime event and the person who is supposed to capture that moment messes it up?  This decision was one of the most important I made regarding my wedding.  John Wendelken was the only person qualified and trustworthy enough, in my eyes, to do this job.  And trust me, in my career, I have worked with hundreds of DJ companies.  John met with me beforehand, we talked about the music, the vision I had for the ceremony and he brought everything to life.  What I appreciated the most about John, and still do, is he genuinely showed excitement for my wedding.  It wasn’t just another event that he does, or another ceremony, it was my ceremony!  I felt like my wedding was the only one he focused on and that is how he approached it!!!  It was a beautiful ceremony and Staar Entertainment made it that way!”
