September Wedding
When it came to wedding planning, music was at the top of our list! Music is extremely important to both me & my husband. We knew it was essential to our wedding day. We first came across Hilton Head Entertainment at a wedding expo. Jessica was extremely nice & gave us a bunch of information about the wide variety of artists they have contracted with their company. I did not immediately reach out to her because we were ideally looking for a band. We quickly realized that most of the big brass bands were out of our budget. I reached out to Jessica via email, still not sure about a DJ. She passed along Craig Edelson's information & we were impressed. He has music software that allows you to build a playlist that suits you. After still being unsure, we arranged a phone call with him. We immediately clicked with Craig and knew that he understood our taste in music. We booked him the very next day. My biggest concern as a bride was that no one would dance. That did not happen with Craig! He had the dance floor going all night long. Towards the end of the wedding, he let me DJ a song which was one of the highlights of our night. (Aside from getting married, lol) So fun! Craig's dance floor lighting & uplighting really created a beautiful, cook, fun atmosphere for our reception. I cannot recommend Craig Edelson enough.

Craig helped us plan and execute multiple VIP events as we unveiled a brand new Volvo to the public. From the music, lighting, and MCing, Craig made our event shine. If you want an event that doesn't skip a beat, hire Craig.
DJ Craig and Jessica Jameson at Hilton Head Entertainment were absolutely fantastic to work with for our Wedding Day! Jessica Jameson was very informative throughout the entire planning process, always promptly answered any emails, and the website made everything easy to plan out. DJ Craig thanks for everything on the wedding day, the song selection from Cocktail Hour throughout the Reception was excellent and everything we asked for, you really got our friends and family up and dancing. Thank you for providing great entertainment to help make our Wedding Day an unforgettable one!

We did a classic Low Country wedding at a private residence in Beaufort. Craig tailored the music and the vibe of the event perfectly to fit what we envisioned. He's a true class act!

Joanie & Sam - Tybee Island, GA
Craig Edelson was a terrific addition to our day, a perfect fit for our style too! Our dance floor was full from opening song until the very end. Several guests commented on how much they enjoyed the dancing and music. He also did a wonderful job Emceeing to keep the flow of the evening going on schedule without being intrusive in the least, so that we were free to enjoy the part as well. We really wanted a low key DJ who created a fun and inviting atmosphere, and Craig understood exactly what we wanted and produced a great evening.
