On Our Search for a DJ for our Second Marriage Reception, we came across Dr. Beat Productions. Sal was amazing from the first time that we met. He totally understood our vision for our wedding and came through 110% All of our phone calls and numerous emails were answered within minutes, We could not have asked for anything more. Thank you to Sal and his team for taking such good care of us on our special day!
Can't say enough great things about DBP! They were so great to work with and very hands on to everything we needed, any requests or changes were taken care of wonderfully. The entrances and dances were great and the music throughout the wedding was perfect! People danced the night away and just had the best time :) Thank you so much Sal & Mike for exceeding our expectations!!!!
The DJ for my wedding, Brian was GREAT! I'm so glad I chose Dr Beat productions for my DJ services. Sal was so professional and very involved in making our night great! He ALWAYS kept in contact and his years of experience truly shows. My guests are still complimenting us on our selection of music, but i have to give credit to Brian. he was so good that I'm even thinking of what kind of party I can throw just to have him DJ it! You should strongly consider these guys, you will not be disappointed.
When planning our wedding my wife and I on our search for djs went to Dr. Beat first and booked with them right then and there. Sal Grosso who runs Dr. Beat Productions met with us and we got a great first impression of him as well as knowing the price going in which is very competitive with the going rates. We made an outline for the wedding and Sal ended up working our wedding with DJ Mike. Everything we laid out song wise for the party coming out to the toasts to the many mandatory songs I put on the list was done to a tee. He was a great MC for the event and managed to get in the mandatory songs I asked for at the right times and got the people out to dance when it was time to dance. He was able to get random obscure songs that we asked for and we heard them playing as the night went on. He even got me a wrestling entrance when it was time to take off my wifes garter. The music was one of the most important aspects to this wedding and Sal really came through as everyone raved afterwards about the music. From a friend who heard one of his favorite dance songs, to us coming out to one of the greatest instrumental metal songs followed by three songs back to back, Sal got it all done for us. Lastly, there were some obstacles to overcome throughout the process, including a last minute problem the day of the wedding, which Sal handled like an experienced pro who had nothing but patience. If you are looking for a dj who will make your event sound different than the generic events you have been to in the past go with Dr. Beat, Sal or one of his djs will play those songs you never get to hear at block partys, weddings or any other events.
Dr. Beat Productions Entertainment is an awesome business! Mike and Gene were the DJ and MC for our wedding and they were outstanding! The music was fun, not too loud and kept everyone moving all night long! We enjoyed the constant communication Sal had with us before the wedding to cover all the fine details and make sure everything was just how it should be! Their professionalism took away all the stress of choosing a DJ. Dr. Beat was amazing and had the perfect mix of music!

“DJ Dr. Beat is one of the most professional qualified DJs in NY. From meeting with us before the event to working behind the scenes with the other vendors during the event, Mike greatly exceeded any and all expectations of a DJ. Our guests were not the ‘dancing type crowd’ and we knew this going into the event. Mike and Sal succeeded in getting people on the dance floor the whole night. If you’re looking for someone who is 100% professional, very organized, and can guarantee a worry free night, Dr. Beat is the way to go!”
-Ashley & Dan Simmione
If you’re the type of couple that truly “marches to the beat of your own drummer”, then Dr. Beat Productions is just the DJ for you. Blending the best of old-school with the best of the new, Dr. Beat does more than just play music, and instead offers an all-out entertainment experience.
1.What services do you offer?
Dr. Beat Productions provides 'The ultimate in occasion entertainment'. We specialize in high energy, yet elegant events. For over 20 years, Dr. Beat Productions has helped hundreds of happy couples create unique, memorable and fun celebrations. We offer a wide range of packages, from our standard DJ/MC shows, to events with the integration of video and live musicians. We also offer many DJ/Band combinations, for those clients who want to the best of both worlds.
2.What is the main function of the DJ?
Since the DJ you hire will bear the responsibility of over 80% of the success of your wedding reception, it is easy to see how important it is to choose wisely. The DJ can be considered “The Entertainment Director”. A common misconception is that the DJ is just “the music”, but in reality, the DJ must perform several duties.
Duties of your DJ include:
Meeting with The Bride, Groom, and Family Members
Creating The Timeline/Agenda
Coordinating The Flow with Photographers, Caterer, and other vendors
Master of Ceremony Duties: Organizing the wedding party, making all announcements including Introductions and all formalities
Programming and Proper Timing of music and requests
Creating A Fun and Personalized Dance Environment
Performing Dances and Interaction at the level you request
And More! Whew!
3.Why is quality entertainment so important for a wedding celebration?
We understand that for most people, choosing a DJ is often difficult and confusing, yet the most important decision you will make for your wedding reception. You Can Make Your Wedding Reception The Best Ever! When You Understand How Important A Role Your DJ Plays In The Success Of The Entire Reception. Since everyone claims to be 'the best', how can you really find out who is good, and who is an amateur? For a once in a lifetime event like a wedding reception, you best start with a professional. Don't take chances with 'a friend of a friend'. Although people mean well, lack of experience or skill will not prepare them to handle unexpected details. Don't make the mistake of choosing a DJ by price alone. Some DJ's may appear to have the right price, but may not be a good fit. It won't matter how much you save, if the DJ you hire ruins the special day that you spent big money and many months planning. We offer an absolutely no obligation event consultation to determine what level of entertainment will be a perfect fit for your special day.
4.What types of music do you play?
We arrive at every event with over 30,000 song titles, from Tchaikovsky to Timberlake and everything in between. Prior to your event, one of our meetings will be based largely on musical requests and any special presentations or performances. In the 2008 wedding season, classic disco and current hip-hop remain the most requested genre's of music, however 80's pop is really making a huge come back.
5.What is currently “hot” or the latest “trend” in DJ entertainment?
The latest and greatest trend in DJ entertainment is by far video integration. The addition of video montages and zap shots have really become two of our most requested add ons. We also offer live video packages for a true club venue feel. Ambient lighting has also become very popular in 2008. In most cases, the look and feel of a catering hall can be transformed using the the latest in ambient/mood lighting techniques.
6.How far in advance should a couple book a DJ?
Our calendar is quickly filled with referrals from other couples & corporations, leading DBP and crew to be one of the busiest entertainment companies in the area, often booked up to 2 years in advance with Weddings, Corporate, and other Social Events. It is best to reach us at least 6 to 12 months in advance to secure a contract.
7.Do you also specialize or include any special effects?
Our Night Club Lighting and Laser EFX shows are absolutely spectacular. Also, we have recently added a new personalized lighting system. We can project your names, wedding dates and more onto ceilings, walls and dance floors. This new option adds a really cool color scrolling text effect. Our clients can even project their own custom messages throughout their event.
8.How often should a couple effectively meet with the DJ prior to the wedding?
We do not have a set number of scheduled meetings, we want all of our future brides to feel totally confident that every aspect of our performance will be exactly as she has envisioned. We will usually meet with our clients an average of three times, depending on the level of entertainment selected for their special day. We make ourselves available seven days a week to help all of our clients with any aspect of their event planning.
