“Wade DJd our wedding reception in October 2015. Of all the vendors and service providers we worked with for our big day, Wade was the most personable, helpful and accommodating, by a long shot. He was easy to communicate with in the lead-up to the event, and open to all our obscure song choices and special AV requests. Most importantly, he made sure our guests were out on the dance floor until last call!”

 – Emily & Greg, Tabaret Hall, October 2015

“Wade guided us every step, and helped us select our music. He has an extensive list of recommended songs which helped us a lot. We were able to select great songs for our cake cutting, first dance, and so on. Wade did such an amazing job on our wedding day! The music variety was phenomenal, and everyone was on the dance floor. The venue had to force everyone out because we still wanted to continue dancing! Wade was not only our DJ, but also acted as our MC after MC we have previously chosen fell through. He did an AMAZING job! He kept the program flowing and fun. My husband and I are very happy we went with Avida Entertainment. Thank you Wade for making our day a dream!”

“Thank you so much to Avida Entertainment for making my wedding an awesome party that no one will forget anytime soon. Wade was always there to answer questions and made me feel stress free from the moment we met him to the end of the night. We pretty much gave him carte blanche on what to play and he did not disappoint, people were on the dance floor all night. The photobooth he installed was a huge hit, I couldn’t believe all the high quality pictures we ended up with.  I’d definetly hire him again in a heart beat. Thanks a million.”

” Wade worked with me to plan a 60th birthday party for my wife in September. He was very easy to work with, which was very reassuring when taking on the task of planning a party. He helped me during the planning process and I could contact him almost anytime. He took care of all the entertainment, providing a photo booth, (which we all loved!) as well as excellent DJ services. I hadn’t danced in about 10 years, and he had us all up, smiling and having a laugh. My wife was so happy with her party! I recommend Avida Entertainment to anyone looking for high quality entertainment services.”

Wade “djwashdown” was so helpful during the process and it was very reassuring to work with a professional.
