Thank you for all you and your team’s work to make last night’s holiday party such a success. The room looked beautiful – and everyone had a BLAST striking a pose at the photo station and with Matt and you at the DJ booth. It was truly a special evening – One that our employees will remember for a long time.
Hope to see you, and work with you again soon! Kristina S.
Director of Communications and Strategic Events.
Groove Events went above and beyond to assist us for our wedding! The staff in the office was very helpful and accommodating when communicating and planning our special day. Matt Toto and his team were exceptional DJs and made our wedding one amazing night! They were very energetic and fun to work with. I would highly recommend using Groove Events for your wedding!

Can't imagine a better choice for our wedding-- I could not recommend this dynamic duo more enthusiastically. We used Joe Toto as the DJ, on a recommendation from a friend who said that she had been to a wedding he DJed where no one sat down the entire time. It's true! From the very first moment, Joe read the room extremely well, understood what did and didn't work, and literally kept people (from hipsters to grandmas to ring bearers) on their feet almost the entire night. He also read the cues from the bride and groom very well and responded very quickly to our feedback. At least 25 guests have told us that our wedding was "the most high energy wedding they had ever been to" and we had well over 3/4 of our guests dancing all night long.
Similarly, have nothing but good things to say about Marcia's photography. She was extremely non-intrusive-- we didn't even know she was there most of them time -- and nonetheless captured the most intimate and special moments of our wedding day. She sent us the pictures in an extremely timely manner and we are so thankful we went w her!
Using Joe and Marcia together also made the package much mroe affordable than it would have been otherwise.
Thank you! Mike & Kimmie
"We would highly recommend GrooveEvents.us & Photography by Marcia to anyone we know who is getting married or just looking for great entertainment & a great photographer. Joe and his team rocked the wedding with great music, Marcia and her team were phenomenal. The pictures came out better than we could have expected. They worked well with the large group to make sure we got all the pictures we wanted and were still able to enjoy the event. They also got those great detail shots.

Hi Marcia & Derek
The photos are absolutely amazing. It captures the entire night so perfectly and you and Rory did such an amazing job!
Derek and Mike rocked the party, what an amazing night
To me the DJ is the most important part of your wedding day, he/she will make all of your announcements and keep your crowd informed and entertained. I chose Groove Events as our DJ and up-lighting vendor. From my initial meeting to the end of our wedding reception, Joe Toto and Marcia were extremely professional and met all of my expectations all while while smiling and being polite. Most importantly we wanted a fun party (not the traditional wedding event) and Joe kept everyone including myself on the dance floor the whole night. Our only regret is that the night didn't last longer. If you need to cut corners and save money the DJ isn't the place to do it when it's your wedding day;)
Joe and Marcia,
Where do we begin. Words can't even explain how amazing your company is as a whole.
The years of hard work you both put into your business truly shines.
The personalities, professionalism and pure talent is just a few words to begin to explain what Groove Entertainment has to offer.
Joe & Marcia we personally want to thank both of you.
You went completely above and beyond to make our wedding day special. we felt like celebrities! From the minute you arrived on site we knew we could sit back, relax and enjoy. Our friends and family can't say enough about the entertainment you provided us on 8.26.11.
You were such an influence in making our wedding day a success and we will never forget that.
You have created memories to last a lifetime and we want you to know how much that means to us.
It wouldn't have been the same without Groove Entertainment running the show.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and we are truly blessed to have meat such great people.
Lauren and Parker Harrington.
Marcia & Joe did 2 weddings of our daughters Joe 3 of them, and numerous other family and business/corporate events, always with the most professional service and we know to expect just the best, and always done for a fair rate. Ralph
These guys were spectacular- great DJ, read the crowd well, had people dancing the entire time, and followed the bride and groom's lead on what they did/ didn't want and responded to it quickly. AT LEAST 25 people have told us that our wedding was "the most high energy wedding" they had ever been to and that it was the only wedding they had ever been at where they never wanted to sit down. I would recommend them to anyone no questions asked.
Thank you Mike
My husband and I got married on October 21, 2016 in Nahant. We had Derek Campbell DJ our wedding. He was the best choice we've made. Derek was very personable and extremely professional. He played a variety of music through out the night for all age groups. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. He was very organized and made sure he had all of the details correct and made sure we didn't miss anything. It was truly an amazing night of keeping everyone energized and on the dance floor and we have Derek to thank for it.
We worked with Graeme Ritchie for our wedding and could not have been more pleased with everything he did to make our wedding so wonderful! Graeme was easy to get in touch with and spent some time asking the right kinds of questions, but it was clear he knew what he was talking about, and didn't need a ton of direction. We sent him some songs and artists we liked, the kind of music we wanted played when throughout the night, and left a lot up to him. Day-of, Graeme was great - fairly hands-off but it was clear that he was on-top of everything that needed to happen and when it needed to happen. The music was amazing - really spot on at every moment of the evening, from the ceremony (which we did pick out which songs we wanted) to the dinner and dancing. Graeme's shining moments were during the dancing portion of the event. People loved the music and the dance floor was packed all night. Since the wedding, multiple people have commented how much fun they had dancing and how good the DJ was - and we agree! As a note, my wife and I are both women and it was a lesbian wedding. Graeme was just generally easy to work with around this and was welcoming, warm and, most importantly, a great DJ!
We used Groove Entertainment/Events for our wedding 2 nights ago - and everything was AMAZING! Joe, Marcia and their entire staff were attentive, courteous, and helped the day go off without a hitch! Thanks, guys!!!
If only I could give more than 5 stars! DJ Erik Joseph was AMAZING! He not only played what we asked for, but he also had great ideas of his own which we used during the ceremony and reception. He was so professional and never tried to be the entertainment by bringing the attention to himself, but only by playing great music.
He did something we, nor any of our guests, had seen before to get all the guests out of their seats and dancing to the very first song – I don’t want to give away his secret, but it was ingenious! I don’t think anyone sat down after that. He was able to keep (young and not so young) guests on the dance floor the entire night. He never really stopped the music. Each song blended into the next and the variety was incredible, but at the same time appealed to everyone.
My husband and I were toying with the idea of combining two songs for our first dance because we loved them both and we told Erik about the idea, which he was all for. Because we weren’t sure how we would dance to them both so we ended up going with just one. Erik surprised us at the end of the night by playing the second song as our ‘last dance’, with all our guests gathered around the dance floor. It was almost more special than our first dance. Now we feel like we have two songs instead of just one.
We received so many compliments about the wedding, but more than any other aspect (food, venue, etc.), we received the most compliments about Erik. One of my bridesmaids told me about a conversation she had with her fiancé about why they had so much more fun at our wedding over any other they had been to. And she said it was because of the DJ. The DJ really makes or breaks a wedding, and DJ Erik made our wedding!
We hired Joe and his team for our wedding in May of 2016. We used a fleet of their services including Joe himself Jamming' out all night, videography, lighting and a photo booth. The energy they brought to the night was nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to make us happy and work along with the other vendors as well. If him team is unavailable the night of your wedding I suggest you changing the date of your wedding to accommodate Joe and Groove.
You will not be disappointed.

Joe Toto and his wife, Marcia, are a fabulous DJ & Photo team. They work very hard together and take time to understand the bride and groom's unique wants, needs and desires. Their services are truly custom fit for the occasion, and no detail is left unaddressed. Joe is the quintessential professional DJ and can "read the room" like no other I have seen. I personally believe that the key to a great wedding is to get the crowd up and dancing and to energize the room. No one does this better than Groove.
We have used Joe and Marcia for both of our daughter's weddings and both times Groove has delivered exactly as promised and created a high energy experience that was fun and memorable for everyone in attendance. Marcia and her team integrate their photog services into the experience in a seamless and highly professional fashion. She too is expert in working the room. We got great pictures; candid shots, set-ups, creative shots, all awesome.
You can't go wrong with Groove Events!
Patty & Jack
To everyone at Groove,
We want to thank you for an amazing evening! Your staff went above and beyond our expectations and we could not have been happier. We could not give you enough praise. Professional, attentive, just the best!
Thanks again for everything!
