As you embark on your quest to find the perfect entertainment for your upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah, we at NYX would like to make this process as fun and amazing as it is easy! Knowing the right questions to ask is as important as knowing the answers. We have compiled the most frequently asked questions over the past 30 years. While times may have changed, the basic questions about a great affair have not. Let’s get this party started!
How much do your services cost?
An NYX experience begins at $3,500 and up, based on the level of production you want. Our pricing is competitive with the industry, but our talent, customer service, professionalism, reputation, and reviews are far and above what any other company can offer. While their services and pricing may seem similar, NO ONE has our people. You are booking a service, not a product, and that is where NYX rises above the rest… offering the most talented and highest character people in the world!
How do I know which size package I need?
We will help you make that decision. The more guests you have, the more entertainment you need. NYX has a 30-year proven formula for pairing the perfect level of entertainment for the size of event we are producing. Our entertainment specialists will be happy to walk you through the process and explain exactly what is needed to deliver the experience you’re looking for (and why!).
How many dancers do I need?
To deliver the best level of engagement for everyone at your event, we suggest the following formula:
– Bar Mitzvah: 1 dancer for every 15-20 children
– Bat Mitzvah: 1 dancer for every 20-25 children
An NYX experience is for everyone, not just the kids. Our ratio of dancers to kids allows us to have enough staff on the event floor to keep the kids fully engaged while also involving your adult guests so that everyone at your party is entertained!
How do I know the talent I book will be there on the day of my event?
This is one of the most popular and sensitive questions every family asks. The truth is, it is impossible for anyone to guarantee they will be somewhere in the future. WE ARE HUMAN and, as such, subject to life and acts of God that sometimes get in the way of our commitments. To address this, NYX has developed a philosophy that is as solid as it is honest and that has served our clients extremely well for over 30 years.
Our philosophy is… If the talent you book is alive, well, and working that day, they will be at your affair and no other.
While you are booking a package featuring a particular talent, you are really booking the company and their reputation for delivering a quality experience.
What makes your company different from everyone else?
We love this question because this is where we shine! It’s not our 30 years of experience, over 20,000 successful events, or our national events industry awards that make us better. It’s our founding principles that make an NYX experience far and away the best for your party!
Our approach to every event is simple: “Make each event an experience that appeals to everyone in the room!”
The NYX formula is to engage every guest from 8 to 80 years old in family-oriented fun! Every person has their own idea of what is a fun time, and we strive to meet those criteria for everyone at your celebration. You can expect a multi-leveled experience featuring a happy mix of music and an environment that makes every guest feel special!
Consistently delivering this level of entertainment is where we draw on our valuable years of experience producing thousands of successful events. Check out what our clients say on our perfect 5-star rated Yelp! about their experience working with NYX for their entertainment: What Our Clients Say
Come in and meet us and you be the judge!
Can we come to one of your events to see for ourselves?
The events we produce are not “our” events. They are the once-in-a-lifetime celebrations of our clients. As such, we hold these moments with utmost care and privacy, as we will do for your special day as well. It is not our place to intrude on our client’s affair with strangers looking on as they celebrate and honor their milestone occasion.
NYX has plenty of collateral to support our services and the quality for which we are known throughout the special events industry. We do understand that this decision is one of the most important you will make for your event. We have a proven plan to achieve the comfort level you will need to place your trust in NYX as your entertainment. That includes a meet-n-greet which we will be happy to arrange with the talent you’re considering. Our goal is to make it easy for you to be certain that your MC is the right fit for your child and your party!
When will I meet my emcee?
Your NYX Entertainment event specialist will work with you up to the moment your MC takes ownership of the event. This happens two months out. At that point, you will be directly connected with your MC and provided their contact info to coordinate your final meetings. During your final, you will sit with your MC in person to go over all of the details surrounding your affair.
This meeting can take place at our office or in the comfort of your own home. Your MC will coordinate this meeting with you directly and make the necessary arrangements according to your schedule and what is most convenient for everyone involved.
Can I pick the party favors for my event? Or should I let NYX take care of that for me?
You can custom order your own favors with us, but it’s best to let NYX handle this for you. We have our finger on the pulse of the hottest trends and most popular favors guests love! Our creative department works hand-in-hand with our talent staff to communicate feedback on which favorite favors people love to see at parties.
Should my event be four or five hours? Which is better? What is the typical length of a party?
Most mitzvahs today are four hours, consisting of a one-hour cocktail reception followed by a three-hour dinner and dancing reception. There are events that run five hours, but this has become rare. In fact, more and more clients are requesting three-hour experiences!
The best parties are short and sweet for maximum impact. No matter how good the experience is, if your party drags on too long, that impact will diminish. While we specialize in helping craft a timeline for your party that flows well and keeps everyone entertained, we need to consider how long we’re asking our guests to stay focused.
We believe that the party should end as hot as it started. We all want our moment to last forever. But what makes an experience special is that it only lasts forever in our hearts and minds!
Can I choose my dancers or select their gender?
Yes, you can choose the gender of the dancers at your event. However, we would advise you to consult with your MC who knows the best complement of performers for your desired experience.
What do the dancers wear?
NYX prides itself on delivering well-groomed, party appropriate, and professionally attired performers. Our creative department has developed a versatile outfit system which integrates perfectly into almost any themed or color-oriented event. Our custom outfits allow for the dancers to personalize their clothing to fit in with your theme or their personal style. That’s what our performers are all about!
If you would prefer something a little different or totally custom, we are happy to provide you with your crew’s shirt sizes or wear any tops you provide.
“Eli’s Bar Mitzvah was nothing but a home run all the way! CRoME & Leko, we were commenting all night on how spectacular you two are. Every song was a HIT! The way you managed the crowd (who danced and sweated all night) was a HIT, your interaction with the family was a HIT and your dancers were a HIT! Loved the outfits and they were the best female dancers I’ve seen! You all stole the night and thank you!”
“Hi Howie, just wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed working with CRoME this past weekend. It was the first time we worked together, but I was very impressed with him and his style of entertaining. He worked really hard to draw in the adults and the kids and get everyone involved and on the dance floor. He was always very professional in working with me and collaborating on the schedule, timing etc. I would be happy to work with him and recommend him to future clients!”
“Howie, I can’t overstate how happy we were with our NYX DJ. Without exaggeration, he was the best part of our event. Not only did he direct our music to exactly what we and our guests both wanted, he was a key player in the organization of the event as a whole. From the planning stages to the actual event, he was professional, quick, courteous, and above all, fun.
I’d recommend your services to anyone who asks us!”
Jordan & Jenn D.
“I just wanted to say thanks for the event on Saturday night at Long View Gallery. As suspected, they didn’t want to stop dancing, which is always a good sign! Thanks all for making the fun last. Howie you were right, T.K, you rocked the evening and it was a pleasure working with you! Leko, thanks for all the pre-event planning. Thanks all.”
“I’m getting texts and emails from parents of the kids who were at Josh’s party telling me it was the best party they’ve ever been to. Under difficult, challenging, and unforeseen circumstances, you kept your composure, rose to the occasion, and kept the party going and kids entertained. What more could we ask for? Thank you truly for all of your and your dancers’ energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism. And that entrance for Josh… totally unexpected and amazing! All our best to you!” – Warmly, Stacey, Dan, Josh, and Emily K.
“Hi Howie and Leko, I just wanted to reach out and personally thank the two of you, and your entire team for the hard work on Saturday. The room looked amazing (your set-up was a huge part of that), and the guests (and the family) had an amazing time! You truly kept the party going all night long, and I know the family was beyond happy with the entire event. I enjoyed working with you both to ensure a fantastic celebration. Thanks and again I really appreciate all your effort to make the night an amazing experience for the entire family! Looking forward to our next event together!” – Christine A.
“NYX came highly recommended and you did not disappoint! EVERY expectation was met or exceeded. Pre-event communication was on point and well managed. MC CRoME took the time to understand who we are and what our needs were. My introverted 13 year old son was DANCING at the party! Every guest had a great time. Timeline of events was well managed. Couldn’t be happier! Looking forward to working with you again!”
“Just want to thank you for a fabulous party. We all had a great time and the party was everything and more that Sarah wanted. She is still excited! Thank you for your understanding, flexibility, and great entertainment as well as customer service.”
“Dear Howie, A hundred thanks for an awesome event! I am so very grateful to have had your help and expertise in executing our KEENFest program. It was a pleasure to work with you and we are so very luck you chose to say ‘yes’ to our request to help us! Our athletes will certainly benefit from the money you helped us raise. My sincerest thanks.” -Elizabeth
“NYX – I knew you would be awesome, but even so you totally exceeded my expectations! Howie and his team had so much energy and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. They knew how to cater to kids, adults, young adults – everyone had an amazing time! People keep telling me how much fun they had. The dancers were so sweet and awesome with the crowd. Jennifer wants Howie and Leko for her bat mitzvah, so please ask Howie to put us on the calendar!” – Rona K.
I am seriously overdue on a HUGE thank you for a spectacular Bat Mitzvah for Elizabeth. Everyone was amazing and the guests had the best time. This was the 3rd mitzvah for this wonderful family and they all agree that this was the best ever yet! You are my partner in this event and I thank you for making me shine.”
“Howie & MC Chris G, Many thanks for an amazing event last night! The Shur family was thrilled and loved the energy and they raved about you, Chris!! I appreciate all of your pre-help with this, I know we had a lot of back and forth with the details. You executed perfectly! There is nothing I would change about last night and I am grateful for your partnership and for the special details you included to make the party even better. Thanks again.” – Dana N.
“Words truly cannot express how happy we were with the lighting and music to the wedding planning! All of our family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had. It could not have been possible without your help. Thank you Howie, you are truly the best at what you do!!”
Reika & Ju C.
“We can’t say enough about how awesome NYX is! They provided DJ, MC, and day-of coordination services for our wedding in June. The DJ and our MC, kept the party going and kept the dance floor packed all night. Our guests raved about their professionalism and perfect song choices, catering to both the grandparents and our college friends.
Our day was perfect and we owe it all to the NYX team.”
“NYX was absolutely amazing at our wedding! So amazing we had to write our review before we leave for our honeymoon! NYX got the party started off right and kept the party going. Our guests had a blast dancing the night away. All of our song requests were played and the band is extremely talented. NYX definitely played a huge part in making our wedding reception incredibly memorable. We couldn’t ask for a better band!”
“I hired NYX Entertainment & Events to handle my music during the reception. They were so helpful and great to work with. They paired me up with Mario and let me tell you he was the best DJ I could have asked for! He met and exceeded my expectations and we had a blast at our wedding. My guests were pleased and hit the dance floor as soon as we started. Couldn’t be any more happier, my reception was exactly how I envisioned it. Mario did an excellent job bringing in the requested songs and more keeping up with the crowd vibe. I highly recommend them for your events, well worth the money, time and experience. Thank you so much!”
“We received glowing compliments on the music and entertainment by the creative people of NYX. They made our wedding more fun than I could have imagined. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Their unique suggestions centered around making sure the guests were having the time of their lives. It was the perfect blend of dancing and entertainment for people of all ages. My mom had never danced before, but she was having such a good time that she eventually overcame her nervousness and danced with my dad!” -Arthur S.
“I highly recommend NYX Entertainment. I had so many compliments from the guests regarding the music and the lighting. My favorite compliment was…’this was truly a celebrity wedding.’ Everything was so perfect and all thanks goes to NYX. The DJ was professional and had great music selection, the MC really hyped the crowd and got everyone dancing, the lighting added so much to the mood. I really could not have asked for more. I would recommend this company to any bride who wants the perfect wedding.”
“My husband and I were MORE than happy with NYX. Everything was very easy before the wedding, as far as payment schedule and communication with the business side — and the DJs were fantastic. The owner, Howie, went out of his way to make our event exactly the way we wanted, and even when a scheduling issue arose the week of our wedding with our original DJ, he made it right and took care of everything personally. Highly recommend.”
“We had DJ Mario for our wedding. My husband and I loved his personality and professionalism. He was energetic, personable, and really knew how to work the room. He’s also perfect for anyone who needs a Spanish-English speaking DJ. If I ever have a need for a DJ again, I would definitely go with DJ Mario and NYX Events.”
“NYX Entertainment is amazing!! Howie helped out with not just the music but everything! They were my first vendor, and gave several recommendations! I got my dress from a store they recommended and my florist as well! They rocked our party all night and people have not stopped asking who our band was! They are AWESOME! Make sure you give them the names of songs that you want prior to your event to make sure they have it! Could not possibly have chosen a better band!!”
“Wow, what a great night. The party was off the hook and we loved MC TK, DJ Leko, Justin B., and Zarina. MC TK was amazing and the party could not have been more fun. Thank you guys for everything! It was fun to see the real-time Zappshots on the screens. I wrote a great review of you guys on the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Facebook group. Thanks again. We will be in touch in a few years for my 2nd daughter!” – Alana C.
“Eli’s Bar Mitzvah on 5/12 was awesome, and MC Chris/DJ Right Touch and NYX were a major reason why!
“Leko and Crome, Thank you for all the joy you brought to Talia’s bat mitzvah. The music by Leko was fantastic, the MC’ing by Crome was superb. Your patience with Talia was VERY much appreciated. Our guests said it was one of the best parties they’ve ever been to – who could ask for more? It’s been a pleasure having you both for two amazing occasions. The dancers were very engaging with our guests. We loved Glow by NYX at the end bringing a new level of excitement… well worth the investment! And I would order those giant LED fans again in a heartbeat! They were fun to look at and really helped keep the air moving! All our best,” -Cindy, Greg, & Talia S.
“Hi, Howie. I just wanted to let you know how awesome Leko, Crome and the team was yesterday. They were so great to work with … Professional, organized, efficient and committed to providing the client and his guests the very best entertainment! And, it wasn’t easy! I know they were thrown A LOT of curveballs! Their set-up space was not as planned, there was conflicting direction from the client and decor designer, there was no room for the photo booth, and they were not given the montage in advance. Despite all this, they proceeded with patience and professionalism. I absolutely loved working with them! Hoping to work with you again and often!!” -Glynis K.
“Your team was beyond amazing. Thank you so much, can’t thank you enough!”
“Just a quick note to say THANK YOU! Everyone had such a great time last night. You struck just the right tone with the kids – and the grownups also had a blast. Thank you for making Charlotte’s party so special. She has a huge smile on her face this morning and I have a feeling this will be a party she remembers for a long time.”
“Thanks so much! Everyone commented how terrific all of you were and how the mix of music was perfect to keep both the kids and adults occupied. We have gotten rave reviews for the party and you were all a HUGE part of it!”
“Crome and Leko, A heartfelt thank you for all your hard work on Saturday night. You and your team were incredible… so professional, so talented, and so much fun. The music was just what we wanted at a volume that was totally appropriate for our crowd. The kids and adults were totally engaged. To quote Gabriel during the car ride home: ‘Mom, I know I’m not supposed to say this, but that was the best f@#!ing time of my life.’ Amazing. Warmly,” -Marilyn K.
“Dear Crome and Leko, You guys did an amazing job last night. What a team you are, what a team you have!! The dancers were adorable. The party was so much fun, and Sammy and his friends had a blast! Thank you for being incredible. Thank you for bringing the party to life!”
Rachel & Dan S.
“Thank you MC Chris and crew for entertaining us at Bradley’s Bar Mitzvah Saturday night in Pikesville! Your professionalism and talent delivered a fantastic party! The Times Square setup and that amazing ‘GLOW by NYX’ blackout set has everyone raving, especially us! We highly recommend NYX Entertainment & Events! We have hired them twice now for our kids’ Mitzvahs and both times NYX delivered! We cannot thank you enough.” – Helen F.
“I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did for our affair on Saturday afternoon. You were absolutely PERFECT in every single aspect of the event. You were totally responsive to everything we asked and followed up to all of our emails. You did a fantastic job in handling the flow of the party! The dancers were fabulous! They were sensitive to their role in stimulating the event without overtaking it, which is a difficult balance. Thank you again for a great event! You are really professional.” -Julie & Joel Z.
“Just wanted to let you know that you did an AMAZING job this past Saturday. The music, dancers — everything was awesome. So many of my guests told me that it was the best Bar/Bat Mitzvah they had ever been to.
We had the greatest time.”
“Just a note to say how wonderful you and your group were at the Byer party. Not sure that ‘wonderful’ is a good description… maybe more like ‘Rockin’! The dancers were not only great on the floor, but extremely nice to the kids. It’s been a while since I have seen that many kids, even the little guys, on the floor all night.”
“I would once again like to take this opportunity to commend you and your DJs, dancers, and staff on a magnificent job at Stacy’s Bat Mitzvah last Sunday. I can’t say enough good things about you and the people who work with you. They are all wonderful. I am constantly getting compliments from my friends and relatives on how superb the DJs were. Thanks again for your patience and extraordinary performance by you and your staff.” – Keith & Paula S.
“What an amazing party — you and your staff were totally awesome. Thanks for making our day so special. We had lots of comments from our guests on how great you were as well as the dancers… very energetic and charismatic!! The music was perfect and the break dancing performance was great too!”
“SPECTACULAR! UNBELIEVABLE! THE BEST PARTY I EVER ATTENDED! I have received so many raves and compliments from my friends. Even those who typically never dance and are always reserved at these social functions were on the dancefloor! No matter who we run into, they have heard from someone who was there how wonderful it was. It’s one thing when your guests rave about the party, but when you hear it from people who weren’t even there, you know it had to be good.” -Paul C.
“Corinne’s Bat Mitzvah celebration was spectacular thanks to you and the dancers and DJ of NYX. It surpassed even our highest expectations. The guests that had never seen you before were amazed, and those that had felt your energy and intensity as high as they had ever seen.
The mix of music was perfect so that both the adult and young guests alike could enjoy the majority of their evening on the dancefloor. I especially appreciate the ways you kept Corinne feeling so special throughout the entire evening. The sound system and lighting was truly state-of-the-art.
Thanks for making the evening a time we will remember forever.”
Fred & Liz S.
“WOW!!! What a great party!!!
The DJ played all the right songs to dance to, and was such a gentleman. The MC was a ‘charmer’ — the perfect emcee. And the dancers gave the guests the ‘boost’ they needed to dance the night away!”
Jane & Len D.
“You and your dancers all went above and beyond at Danny’s Bar Mitzvah. I still hear from my friends and family telling me about the great time that they had. They all talk about you. Everyone comments that it is the only Bar Mitzvah they will actually remember.
We were lucky enough to receive the video that shows all of your energy and how the party never stopped. In fact, it just got better and better.
So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking it to the limit. By the way, we recently went to my nephew’s Bar Mitzvah in a fancy area of northern New Jersey and the DJ group was nothing compared to you. If you need any recommendations, please call any time.”
Joan & Jon M.
“Thank you so much for bringing ‘New York’, as we Cohens have always known it, to ‘Meredith’s Rainbow Room’. It was truly a rockin’, sockin’ soiree, unmatched by any other party in recent memory!
Howie, you are first-class when it comes to pleasing your clients.”
Joyce & Allyn C.
“Your group of entertainers for our son David’s Bar Mitzvah was terrific. They really made the party a lively affair. I would especially like to mention the MC. Man! Where did he get that endless performance energy?
All the recommendations and suggestions you offered paid off, as our guests had an absolutely fantastic time. You were right — the pair of female dancers were exuberantly matched by the additional pair of male dancers.
So far we have used your performers twice, and you are batting two for two. So what else is new, as I guess you are accustomed to these compliments. Still, my whole family thanks you a lot.”
“My deepest thanks for the wonderful, wonderful night everyone had the other night at Emily’s Bat Mitzvah. The MC and the group he brought were absolutely amazing. I should never, ever have wasted time worrying about whether the party would be successful. They made sure that each of the 160 of our guests had the best, best time!
From the first song, the MC had the crowd dancing, and the party moving… and it didn’t stop all night long! And your dancers were so wonderful with the crowd. I’ve had Emily’s friends thank me for the best party, and my family and friends are still calling! From 13 to 83 years old, everyone loved the music and entertainment!”
“Thanks for making Eric’s Bar Mitzvah an unbelievable success. Your energy and enthusiasm really got everyone pumped up. I was amazed to notice how few people were ever seated during the affair. Your dancers have a way of embracing the crowd and making the shyest guest, whether older or young, feel like a million bucks.
They take you by the hand and have a way of bringing out your inner spirit so that all your guests have a thoroughly enjoyable time. It is extremely impressive to see teens and adults sharing a dancefloor, both feeling that the ‘moment’ is their own. The lighting was awesome, which added to the total ambience of the party.
Howie, your timing was great for the flow of the evening. From the moment the doors opened and you warmly welcomed the guests into the haze-filled ballroom, to showing the video, to dancing the Hora, and the finale with group locking arms in song, the party sizzled from beginning to end.
Guests continue to compliment us on how great the Bar Mitzvah was. They can’t remember when they last had so much fun or danced that much. Eric’s Bar Mitzvah was the ‘buzz’ at school too. The kids truly had a blast.
Thanks for making the party all come together. We appreciate the professionalism and enthusiasm which really set the tone for a fantastic evening. There is no doubt that a party with NYX will have your guests dancing the night away and talking about it the next day. If you can measure the success of a party by how sore your feet feel in the morning, then Eric’s Bar Mizvah was HUGE!
Consider yourself ‘booked’ for our other son Michael’s Bar Mitvah. You’re the BEST!”
Linda & Bruce S.
“The people from my office said they had never been to a livelier party! Although there are no more parties like this in my near future, I would recommend NYX to anyone who is having a party!”
“Everyone was completely dazzled by your team’s performance! Your music was perfect. It kept the children and adults rocking all night! The MC did a phenomenal job to keep the party moving. All four dancers were upbeat, tireless, and had smiles for all. Their costumes were superb. Your equipment was fabulous. The kids adored the give-aways. Your professionalism and thoughtfulness were evident throughout. We’ll work together again as soon as I can find an excuse for a party! Although, I wish I could do this one again in slow motion!!!” -Linda & Robert S.
“I just need to tell you what an awesome party I had on Saturday night and I owe it to you. You were fantastic and I really appreciate you for doing such an amazing job. Your dancers were amazing and the music was AWESOME!!! What do I need to do to save the date for Jamie’s party on Jan 30th? You are the chosen one. Jamie wouldn’t have it any other way!!! She is already telling everyone that her party is going to be just the same as her sister’s. She even wants the same dancers! Anyways, thank you so much for everything. You are truly the best and I appreciated every minute you were with us!!!” -Judy S.
“Words cannot express the level of gratitude that both Michelle and I have for the stellar job that you and all of your staff did at Zach’s Bar Mitzvah. Your recommendations and suggestions were the difference between the average standard reception and one that showed ingenuity and creativity. Your ideas made the difference and put our party over the top.
Your dancers treated our guests so well they all felt like family. Their energy level and the time they took to ensure our guests had the best possible time was very evident every minute of the evening.
The flatscreens and the light show added to the level of excitement of the evening and created a level of sophistication that was unequalled. Combined with the family montage and special candle lighting, our family was ingeneously brought together with our friends for an additional meaning to the evening.
I would be remiss if I didn’t add that your personal touch on Saturday was the icing on the cake and gave us a comfort level which ensured that both Michelle and I would have a great time at our own party.
Without reservation, anyone who does not utilize the full service of NYX runs the risk of not getting the full potential of what a great party someone can throw.
We love you and will always regard your contribution as the reason our guests have told us that our Bar Mitzvah party was the best they have ever been to and have compared it with the embassy and diplomatic receptions as far as elegance and equal in quality to events they have attended in New York.
Thank you so much for making a memory for us which will stay with us for the rest of our lives. You are the best!!!”
Michelle & Steve F.
“I HAVE TO THANK YOU AND YOUR TEAM for the most wonderful party, ALL THANKS TO YOU!!!! You did not stop for a SECOND and my party was entertaining and fabulous all THANKS TO YOU.
But the kids, they still can’t get over it. The kids themselves are calling me to tell me what a fantastic time they had. They have been at Bar Mitzvahs before but never as fun as this one. And again, ALL THANKS TO YOU AND YOUR GROUP.
I can’t recommend you enough. I had so many people come up and ask me about you because their children were getting ready for their Bar Mitzvah and they wanted to get you… whatever it took.”
“We just wanted to let you know what an unbelievably fabulous job you, your dancers, and DJ did at Aaron’s Bar Mitzvah last night!! True to your word, you did not let our guests sit still all night — your energy was infectious!
And it was great to be able to show our local guests how to really party ‘New Yawk’ style.
Thanks again to all of you for an awesome evening!”
Marcy & Larry L.
“From the minute I stepped into your office, I knew we would have an awesome party. You helped me with almost every aspect of the party — which wasn’t your job but just shows me how much you enjoy making people happy.
Your concept for NYX is amazing.”
“WOW!! What an amazing night!
Right from the start, the evening just ran flawlessly. Your dancers were so enthusiastic and friendly during cocktail hour. The entrance into the ballroom was filled with fun and excitement.
The music choices were excellent… top-of-the-line DJ. The video flatscreens were awesome. The way you made our family feel loved was incredibly special.
The candle lighting was done perfectly. Your dancers were so fantastic and gave our guests the time of their lives. The kids and adults loved your party favors.
Your energy was so contagious that the dancefloor was packed the entire night! Who could ask for anything more?”
Stacey & Ray T.
“Everyone is still talking about our wedding! The entire day was a DREAM come true for both of us. You made the entire room ROCK!! Family, friends, and co-workers were ALL dancing, even those that never dance. Our bosses were dancing with sombreros and dark sunglasses on! We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! You made our day one that nobody will EVER forget!!”
“We are still getting rave reactions from our family and friends who were there, with most people asking ‘where did you find that Howie!!??’ Seriously EVERYONE — and most importantly Molly, Noah, Lisa and I — had so much fun and loved every minute. You were a great MC with a great DJ, and Michelle and all the dancers were great. Thank you for helping make what was already a very special event for our family truly extraordinary.”
David & Lisa L.
“We would like to thank you for the fantastic job your DJs did at our wedding. They were wonderful. They did a fabulous job getting everyone to dance. They followed all our requests on music to play and music not to play. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed them. They really made the party. Without them it would have been just another wedding reception.”
Maya & Jon F.
“Louise and I felt it was important to send you this letter of thank you for the excellent job you and your group did at our daughter’s Sweet Sixteen party. When we met to discuss and plan the evening, you assured us it would be enjoyable for everyone who attended. That was an understatement. Watching our daughter and her friends dancing and enjoying the activities you planned throughout the evening confirmed we had made the right decision engaging your services.” -Lousie and Charles G.
“Sarah’s event was truly outstanding. You were able to keep everyone on that dancefloor all night. That included the age groups from 13 to 70. The music selection wasn’t the typical stuff you hear all the time, but music everyone could relate to. The dancers were on fire (they were so hot!!!) and we had so much fun with them. I felt so confident that you were in charge of the evening that it allowed Ken and I to be guests at our own affair. I can’t say enough of your entire staff. They were way more than I could’ve hoped for. Thank you again.” -Rachel & Ken G.
“Sarah had the time of her life and did not want her party to end! It was great, good fun and both Michelle and Anton did a terrific job! Thanks too for the party favors — a HUGE hit!”
“From what I could see, you had almost all our guests up within 15 minutes of entering the room and they didn’t sit down! You were able to keep the kids involved with their own activities and those which included the adults. You were attentive to our requests prior to the party and all of you were courteous and professional throughout the experience. We only have one regret… We don’t have an occasion soon enough for which to hire you again! You were so critical to the success of the evening and we sincerely appreciate your efforts.” -Tom & Annette P.
“Thank you for making Marisa’s Bat Mitzvah celebration spectacular. Marisa, our family and guests all had a wonderful time. Your warmth, energy, and leadership created the perfect party. We hired you because we knew how important the DJ/MC/entertainment was to a party. We expected a lot and you exceeded our expectations.
That evening our guests congratulated and praised us on many, many things. However, nearly everyone commented on the wonderful entertainment by NYX. We will certainly recommend you to our friends and family.
We also would like to thank your DJ for his help in the office and by phone preparing the candle lighting songs and lighting package, as well as his attentiveness during the Bat Mitzvah party. Each of the dancers were also high energy and did a wonderful job ensuring all our guests, both young and old, were having a good time.
Thank you for exceeding our expectations.
Carol & Marty B.
“On behalf of our entire team at the Woodmont Country Club, I would like to thank you for providing entertainment & DJ service for our Employee Holiday Party.
You and your team were fantastic. Your participation made our holiday party a huge success. I will not hesitate to recommend your services to any of our members who want a truly professional and memorable experience.”
Good morning. It was great to see you at the Flack Bar Mitzvah at the Odyssey Saturday night. NYX was at the top of their game as usual and I’ve been hearing rave reviews all week — including requests for bookings.
The Jaffe’s at the Four Seasons were thrilled with the way NYX handled the delayed start of the evening due to the bus fiasco. You guys saved the night for them.
“Dear Howie, You and your dancers were outstanding… did not want to go to bed without letting you know how impressed I was with you and your team. You kept the party alive the entire night. And you are so nice, very warm, and caring. Thanks so much, you were great! You were the key ingredient in tonight’s success. Again, thank you for your energy and your enthusiasm. Please let your dancers know how pleased we were also.” -Steven S.
“You did it! You made our party one that will not be forgotten. Our event was so much fun from the awesome music, the dancer, the fabulous light show, and fun party giveaways. Our friends are still talking about it, and we owe it all to you. We’re sure you saw the amount of people still on the dancefloor when it was over, which is not typical of a Service Guild event. We had so much fun working with you. Thank you so much for making it a huge success.” -Nanci F.
“Days and weeks after the event, our colleagues are still reminiscing about the entertainment! You were the highlight of the evening. We loved the variety of music played that kept everyone on the dancefloor! Again, many thanks for your assistance in creating a memorable event. We look forward to seeing you again soon.”
Robin S. - Mandarin Oriental Hotel
“Thank you very much for the excellent entertainment that you provided for our women’s Alumnae meeting at the Royce Carlin Hotel. All of the women enjoyed the music and were pleasantly surprised at how many participated in the dancing. Your background music was a lovely addition to the awards ceremony, as well as to our dinner. Looking forward to working with you again!!!”
“I am pleased to take this opportunity to commend you on the excellent job you did for us as MC and DJ at our office party. My office is noted for always having great Christmas parties, however, this year’s was by far the absolute best! I can only attribute this to you and your group who provided the utmost in entertainment. Everyone who attended truly enjoyed themselves and raved about the music. Thanks again for doing such a great job. I’ll be sure to recommend you in the future whenever the opportunity arises.” -Carol D. – Chicago Title Insurance Company
“The affair was a success by all measures, as the result of the collaborative efforts of the individuals such as yourself and those associated with NYX.”
“Thank you so much for a fabulous party yesterday. Your team was absolutely perfect. The kids didn’t sit down for a minute. It was a great mix of music for lots of generations, and we all had a blast with your talented dancers. It was worth every penny! Lots of people asked for your name, and I just sent you someone from Baltimore who emailed asking for your contact info. We go to these things all the time and they are all the same, boring stuff. You guys truly made it special and we are grateful. Thanks again,” -Carolyn B.
“This weekend was great! You all did a great job and I was very impressed. That was the craziest dancefloor I’ve seen in a long time, so a big thanks to you and your team! I hope to work together in the future soon!
“Please pass on to the staff at our party Saturday how much fun we all had! Maddy’s friends all had a blast and we will be talking about this for quite a while. Our adult guests also danced up a storm – even my 80 year old mother left her walker at the table to get out there! It was a really high energy party. We parents particularly liked the segue from the father/daughter dance to Howie’s invitation for the other girls to get their fathers to dance and then the sons and mothers. It’s not so often we get to dance with our kids like that. The kids seemed to really like the dancers as well. They were really effective at getting people motivated. Thanks again.” -Wendy B.
“Dear Howie, Thank you so much for your wonderful performance. You and your team impressed all the guests on Friday evening and made this event an incredible success. I shared with all the managers your contact information and collaterals to recommend NYX. I hope we will have the opportunity to work together on many occasions. I look forward to welcoming you again. Thank you again,”
Amal Z. - The Ritz Carlton
“Dear Mr. Teger,
I am writing to let you know of the wonderful job your staff did at my son’s Bar Mitzvah party last Saturday night. They exceeded our (extremely high) expectations and our son was thrilled.
All of your staff were terrific, but the MC was truly outstanding. He is charismatic, full of energy, and thoroughly entertaining. The kids all loved him, and so did we parents!
When we met with him before the party, he was extremely kind to my son and took care to make him feel completely comfortable. He asked insightful questions and listened carefully to our requests and preferences, and at the party he honored them all. He worked tirelessly throughout the evening to make sure that every guest was engaged and comfortable, and he created exactly the kind of atmosphere we were seeking.
Since Saturday we have received many compliments on our party, and your MC deserves credit for all of them. We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with such a talent, and we would be glad to serve as references to anyone contemplating hiring you.
“Thanks for an amazing party. I truly did not think we could get so many people dancing! Everyone is asking who the DJ company was. Thanks again, and look forward to the video. The City of Baltimore is talking! Thanks again!”
Joanne R. & Family
“The party in Philly was GREAT! MC was AMAZING with the guests. He kept our program flowing, improvised when need be, handled his business… he was IMPRESSIVE and PROFESSIONAL. The dancers were great too… the young adults loved the dance lesson they received. This party was so much fun. My daughter Ashley will be in touch with you regarding an upcoming party. Thanks for everything. You have a market in Philadelphia. There’s nothing like NYX there. We’ll be in touch. Love you,” -Ardelia H.
“Dear Howie, Just wanted to say thank you for helping us make our Annual Client Appreciation party such an overwhelming success. You and your group were entertaining, creative, professional, and a real pleasure to work with. You delivered on your promise to make it an unforgettable night and you will definitely be a part of any future Stephen Gould Corporation events. Sincerely,” -Robert R. – Sales Manager – Stephen Gould Corporation
“Thank you for your willingness to give back to our troops by providing entertainment for their children. Our organization appreciates your service today.
We have all discussed your contribution. Today you are Heroes!”
Dr. Al Wasserman
You did it! Words cannot express our gratitude. It was simply a magical evening from start to finish.
I can’t thank you enough for throwing such a fabulous party! We all loved every minute of it. You and your crew were like the heartbeat of the night – and with such complex circumstances!
As far as I’m concerned, you are the ONLY DJ & Co. in the area. The only bummer is that we have to wait 2 years to work with you again (our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah).
P.S. – Please let everyone from NYX who was there know what a fantastic job they did. PERFECT!”
Stefanie & Russell W.
“I am the Events Manager for my company. We just hosted our Summer Sales Meeting at the Watergate Hotel, and I hired NYX Entertainment for our company dinner event. Howie Teger is the BEST DJ I have ever hired for an event, hands down (and I’ve worked with many, across the country)! He inquired about our group beforehand, kicked off the dancing with a bang, and continued to read the room throughout the event and kept us on the dance floor until the bitter end. Even our CEO was raving about Howie! There is no reason to look any further. Hire NYX Entertainment for your next event… I promise… you will not be disappointed!” -Robin R.
“NYX Entertainment & Events is a must for your wedding! I’ve personally worked with Howie on events in DC for over ten years. He is the consummate professional. As a wedding planner, I had a specific vision for our wedding day. NYX handled the music for cocktails and dinner. From walking us through the timeline to integrating unplanned toasts, Howie handled it seamlessly. The dancefloor was packed and everyone said it was the best wedding that they had ever been to. Thank you NYX Entertainment & Events for making my wedding night so amazing!” -Meredith F.
“Dear MC Chris, Howie and Leko, Thank you all for a spectacular evening. The music was fabulous. The lighting and set up were beautiful. Chris was so sensitive in making space for our remarks, and created so many special moments for Benjamin and our family. The kids thought the party was “lit” which I gather is about as high a praise as you can get. Chris somehow managed to play the favorites Ben and we wanted and found ways to get both adults and kids on the dance floor. We could not be happier.” -David & Cathy G.
“Hi Howie and Leko, I just wanted to take a moment and send you an email about how flawlessly my wedding went last Saturday. The number 1 thing my guests raved about was how amazing our DJ was. He really was the life of the party and got the crowd going. Even my photographer commented on how amazing he was! I just want to thank all of you for everything. You really made our wedding more than we ever thought it could be!” -Amanda D.
“Dear MC Chris – Thank you for making Lindsey & Daniel’s wedding at the Watergate Hotel the MOST WONDERFUL evening for our families! You & your band (NYX Live) are INCREDIBLE! So much fun!!!”
Elizabeth & Michael Y.
“I would recommend your company to anyone and everyone. You took our event to the next level! DJ FreqOut and the photobooth operator were both awesome and very professional. Only positive things to say.”
“MC Chris G. and his team were amazing… attended to our every to our need. They read the crowd brilliantly! Band was awesome. It was a total dance party! All the guests complimented us on how this was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. NYX and it’s fusion act (NYX Live) are awesome. It was so fun!”
“Thanks for making our day so special and perfect!”
“Thank you Leko for entertaining our guests last night at La Banque at the Seaplane Base in Havre de Grace,MD. It was a pleasure having you. Your flexibility with the crowd and uncertain weather was much appreciated. To those looking for DJ and entertainment services, I highly recommend Leko. He is a great guy with modern equipment and the know how to make the crowd move! Everyone had a great time thanks to his talents!”
Even if I say thank you a million times it won’t be enough to express our appreciation for such an amazing evening… Yotam can’t stop saying how much fun he had, his friends are saying it was the best bar mitzvah they’ve been to and the adults just loved every single minute of it! We are getting praise from every direction we look 🙂 The flow of energy you and your team had throughout the evening was just unbelievable… You connected wonderfully with the kids, with the adults – everybody just loved you!!!
I knew yotam would love you! YOU ARE GREAT!!! It’s clear you love what you do and I sincerely wish for you that that energy, that fire you have will always stay with you, in every thing you do in life. Thanks for giving us a perfect evening!
“We cannot say enough great things about NYX! Howie and his team made our twin daughters’ B’not Mitzvah an experience that we and our guests will never forget.
Not only did Howie provide top notch entertainment, but he also took care of all of the little details that made the party extra special, including a green screen, awesome up lighting, a step & repeat for a red-carpet entrance, and fabulous lounge furniture for the kids.
Howie’s selection of music and games kept the dance floor packed and the party moving all night. Howie also paid close attention to my husband and I to make sure we were happy and to make sure we were well taken care of all night.
Howie, DJ Leko, Chrome, and team totally OVERDELIVERED! The worst part was that it had to end. Thank you NYX. You are the best!!!”
“Howie and NYX were amazing! Howie was so responsive to all of my questions and gave me great advice on how to make the Bat Mitzvah memorable. My daughter, who can be very shy, felt so comfortable with EMCEE Chris when we met to discuss the details. He did such a great job engaging the guests (kids and adults)!
MC Chris was energetic, fun, and full of personality. He made my daughter feel so special, without taking her out of her comfort zone. The DJ and dancers were also so much fun!
I am still getting compliments from guests regarding the great selection of music and entertainment! Everybody had a great time thanks to Howie, Chris and the NYX team. I will definitely use them for my next event!!!”
“We just used MC Crome and the party rocked! Howie was the DJ (lucky us!) and everybody danced all night. I was amazed at how engaged they kept both the kids and adults. Crome knocked it out of the house with his amazing dance moves and his charisma. Howie rocked the music all night long. When the last song came on, everyone sighed as they did not want the night to end. And what can I say about the dancers! They were awesome. All four of them taught the adults dance moves so they could keep up with the kids. I could not have asked for a better MC, DJ, or dancers. Thank you NYX Entertainment for the best event ever!” -Jennifer F.
“Not even Snowzilla could stop them!!! Our party was the Saturday of Snowzilla! Howie was committed to making it happen and began moving equipment to the venue two days before the storm. His DJ was incredible, the photo booth was awesome, and the dancers provided a whole new level of energy. Howie played all the music we like. We looked back at the tables and nobody was sitting down!! The glow set brought the house down! We couldn’t be more impressed by the professionalism, showmanship, warmth, and talent of NYX. We WILL definitely party with them again, and recommend them without reservation. They are THE BEST.” -Cinthia R.
“NYX made our wedding! From the music to the Emcee to the live instruments; our guests didn’t leave the dance floor all night. When our wedding ended, nobody was ready to leave. They played every song we asked them to, kept in perfect sync with our timeline and their wonderful communication and willingness to do whatever they could to make our night perfect made them a pleasure to work with. They totally rocked our wedding. A week later we are still getting calls from friends and family saying it was THE best wedding they have ever been to.” -Jennifer R.
“NYX Entertainment is incredible! They did our wedding last Saturday and had the dancefloor packed before the first course was served! Howie was so helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process! NYX is definitely the way to go!! Thanks for everything!”
“Howie and the team did an amazing job at our wedding. They were very responsive with suggestions, questions, follow up , etc. They had excellent suggestions for our playlist and were really committed to keeping everyone dancing. When things got off schedule due to key family members’ late arrival, Howie was able to improvise in order to keep the flow and still fit in the aspects that were important to us. Howie really got the audience involved and during the garter toss had us all at the edges of our seats. I would highly recommend Howie and the team at NYX Entertainment.” -Christina F.
“NYX provided the entertainment for my son’s bar mitzvah..and entertain they did! Our dance floor was packed the entire night with guests of all ages. The music was great, the dancers were awesome and the service from NYX couldn’t have been better.
I put my total trust in NYX to deliver a fun party and they far exceeded my expectations! They delivered a party that our guests are still raving about!”
“The entire team of MC Chris and DJ Leko plus the 2 awesome dancers were fabulous!!!!!! We loved every minute!”
“I hired NYX Entertainment for my son’s bar mitzvah party at a restaurant in Bethesda. We had approx 40 adults and 60 kids (most of whom were young teens). NYX provided a fantastic emcee and DJ, plus three dancers. They were FANTASTIC!
They got the boys moving on the dance floor, which is not always the easiest thing for a DJ/emcee to do with teens. They had games for the kids in between the dance sets. They had lights, and lots of light-up giveaways such as hats, shades, rings, necklaces, etc. They oversaw the boy of honor’s entrance, the parents’ entrance, the mother and son dance, the Hora, the chair lift, line dances, etc. etc. They played every song I had requested.
The whole thing was absolutely perfect, and they truly made every minute of the party so much fun! I loved working with Howie on all of the advance planning, too. Highly recommended!”
“We used NYX Entertainment last weekend for my son’s Bar Mitzvah and they were amazing. The DJ catered to both the kids and adults, reading the crowd.
The MC’s break dancing had everyone engaged. The company as a whole was professional and very easy to work with. I didn’t worry about a thing all night.
The owner of the company came by to say hello, which was very nice. At the end of the night, my younger son told me that he wanted to book NYX for his party, which is 2 years away! Talk about planning ahead. I can’t say enough good things about NYX Entertainment.”
“Michael and I had our destination wedding in Puerto Rico. Howie went above and beyond helping us plan every detail of our wedding day. He delivered every promise to make our wedding perfect. When our day-of coordinator in Puerto Rico failed to prepare, Howie did not miss a beat in picking up the pieces. We had an outdoor wedding and Howie was the only person to prepare for rain… he saved the day with an umbrella that he let us keep as a sweet memento. We have nothing but compliments about Howie’s professionalism and high energy. Howie made a world of a difference in ensuring that our wedding was the wedding of a lifetime!” -Carmen & Michael F.
“There are no words to express our gratitude for everything you did to make this weekend so amazing. We were completely blown away by everything. I cannot tell you how many people came up to me to say that Howie was the best DJ they’d ever seen. And people LOVED the dancers!!!! The whole thing was perfect. I could go on and on. We would be more than happy to serve as a glowing reference for all of you. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough. You are the best!!!” -Kimberly & Lawrence B.
“NYX was the best! Affordable, full service, and all the latest technology. We had a DJ, an MC and two live musicians giving the event an incredible energy – and MC Chris was off the charts. From the first song to the last, the dance floor was packed. And I just don’t mean my friends – EVERYONE was dancing. My family sang during the ceremony and NYX provided the equipment for them. We added an NYX photo booth for fun at the last minute. The whole thing was about 1/2 the price of a band from another agency.” -Jonathan C.
“What an incredible job NYX did for our B’nai Mitzvah. Above and beyond. MC Chris was just tremendous. Energetic, accommodating, funny, just perfect in every way.
And your dancers…WOW. The dancers were both amazing, and the male in particular was beyond. He really got the boys out there, and I love that the woman wore gold pants to match our theme.
Everyone had such a great time. As my husband said afterward, we could have just had the NYX team and ordered Dominos.”
