Review for 2 day DJ events And Mariachis Aug 2019: "There is truly no better decision you could make for your wedding than to choose Vicky and Absolute Entertainment for your music. Vicky is much more than a music planner, she serves as a wedding coordinator, a support system during the stressful times of the wedding, and about that is a true visionary. We had an indian wedding with multiple parts and multiple non-traditional music needs. She had a stand built so that the DJ could lead the groom on his horse during the ceremony. She sat with our families and went song by song for each day and each event to ensure every detail was perfect. We had a lot of Indian music, and she obtained it all, and made sure the order was perfect. For our main reception, she ensured that the mix of American music, Indian music, slow, fast etc was perfect to keep everyone on the dance floor. She would even edit the songs, shortening them as we wanted to maximize the number of songs we wanted for each. I assure you there is NO one else better than Vicky. she is a true expert and not only will sit down with you and go through song by song to ensure that everything is perfect, she has a vision for the whole event that will ensure all the guests enjoy themselves. There were so many things that I didn't even think about in the planning process, but her dedication to the details ensured that everything was absolutely perfect. She helped us plan our Indian parade through the plaza of Santa Fe, and because she has been in the business for so long, there is nothing that she doesn't know. She helped us with so much more than music, and knows everyone else in the business and ensures things are taken care of. I can't tell you how reassuring it was knowing everything was in her hands. She is truly the best !!!"

"Vicky with Absolute E is awesome! She is very professional and very seasoned, she has a lot of experience in what she doing which is always so helpful. We hired AE for our ceremony string quartet and also for a mariachi band to take all the guests around the Santa Fe plaza and then they continued to play for the cocktail hour.

Wedding Reception Dinner & Dancing
We don't have to tell you that music can make an immense contribution to a wedding celebration. Music encompasses everything you have planned and can make or break an event. You may have forgotten many details of the receptions you have attended in the past , but we doubt that you forgot if there was good music and a great party. That is why we suggest you ask the local wedding vendors and hotel sales staff who they recommend for music. By the time we meet with clients we usually hear "everyone recommended you." Great live music brings a special energy to a party. Our acclaimed band SOULSTICE is the popular choice, and we invite you to visit their website to see, hear and read about the band. If a live band is not within your budget or preference, then our Absolute DJ Service will spark the party playing your favorites. We also do events combining both live music and DJ. In any case we will plan out the reception music and events with you, and produce a typed Agenda from which we will MC your event smoothly and professionally.
Pre & Post Wedding Events (Welcoming Party, Rehearsal Dinner Post Wedding Brunch)
When getting together with family and friends prior to the wedding day we often supply local music that adds an exotic ingredient as many of your guests may be experiencing Santa Fe for the first lime - Mariachi bands or Spanish guitarists, Flamenco guitar, Flamenco Dance Show, Cuban Music, Native Dance Shows or an intimate jazz group. Whatever you wish we can supply your Live Music.
