My husband and I were thoroughly impressed by Mike’s ability to enhance the inherent beauty of the Wadsworth Mansion with his uplighting. He was able to transform the Wadsworth from a beautiful venue to an absolute spectacular venue with his exceptional lighting arrangement. We were at first hesitant to the idea of spending money on uplighting at the Wadsworth but after seeing what Mike is capable of in such a technically challenging venue for lighting certainly made everything worthwhile. Not only is Mike a lighting genius but he is exceptionally professional and a great deal of fun to work with. He replies to all questions and inquiries within a timely manner and does so in a way that makes you feel as though your wedding or event truly matters to him. People to this day are still talking about the indoor and outdoor lighting at the Wadsworth stating that the mansion looked like something out of a fairy tale wedding book! I am truly grateful that I came across Mike. He made already special day so much more memorable with his services!
Unbelievable!!! Simply put. Mike and his team, we can’t thank you enough for what you did. We knew we were in good hands and that it would be spectacular but you put it over the top. You own The Society Room and the way you present it, from beginning to end. It was second to none. The upwash, the motion lights, the sound system, and of course yourselves made the night beyond perfect and we would do it all over just to get that feeling of awe again. The expressions we saw on people’s faces were priceless and to have them come up to us at the wedding or even weeks after saying that it was not only beautiful but the best wedding they’ve been to says something. On top of it all, you both made it so easy to prepare for it, meeting our every need and making us feel so comfortable. Thanks again for everything, we truly enjoyed it all!!!!

Mike and his team took care of everything and made sure our reception came together perfectly.
The planning process was handled professionally and the execution of their services provided us with a truly wonderful evening. Music, announcements and lighting were integrated seamlessly for an elite experience. Hiring them was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding.

Mike and his team,
I can’t thank you enough for making my sister’s wedding such a fabulous event! Working with the two of you was seamless from our initial meeting to the night of the wedding. Your professionalism and attention to detail were impeccable and truly made our evening so special. Additionally, as a wedding event planner who is focused on the details, I was impressed by your willingness to be open to new ideas such as the event flow for the evening. Everything could not have been more perfect!! I look forward to working with you soon and will certainly be recommending your services to all my brides. Thanks again!

Mike and his team,
We could not have imagined a better vendor for lighting and sound than AMS. They are true professionals who take their art seriously, which shows in how passionately they are in each step of the planning process. We could tell that they were going to be great to work with during our first consultation meeting, where they not only asked, but listened to, and were genuinely excited about each of the requests we had for the night. We were truly able to make the night about us. Erin, The DJ, is awesome. She seemed so in tune with all styles of music; we went on a limb and gave her complete artistic freedom with planning our night’s music (No Playlist!). We were NOT disappointed. From an elegant cocktail hour, through dinner and onto one of the most rocking dance parties we have ever experienced – she really kept the vibe of the room right were it needed to be at all the right times. SHE ROCKS! Mike was the MC and Lighting expert. His voice is professional, easy to understand, and he did a great job at ushering the night on schedule through all of the important events (Bridal Party Intros, Parent Dances, Speeches, Cake Cutting, Bouquet/Garter throw, etc.). We were tired of hearing about all of the cheesy tactics some DJs do to get everyone more involved in the night — Mike did it simply with a genuine excitement for what he does, and a great attitude! As for the lights – WOW. Mike knows his stuff and is truly a genius at transforming not just the actual room but the entire atmosphere and mood of the event to a whole new level of it’s own. The up washing really added a dramatic feel to the cocktail hour and dinner, and then when dancing started, the lasers, strobe lights, and hazing machine turned a regular wedding reception into the hottest nightclub in Hartford! (seriously) If you are contemplating upgrading to the lighting package, I would seriously urge you to go for it! AMS will provide you with a professional, flexible and customized experience that is truly second to none. Beyond that, they integrate seamlessly with the rest of our vendors to ensure that the lighting/sound services are not intrusive to other activities going on. Ever since our wedding,we’ve gotten several requests for their information, saying that “the flow, lighting and music of the night was perfect, and the best they have ever seen!” Mike and his team are incredible, and they were integral in making our wedding the best day (and party 😉 ) of our life!

Dear Mike & his team,
Thanks for the incredible job you did at our wedding at Chez Joseph last October. You guys tore the roof down and everyone in our families have been raving about it ever since about your performance!
Very Truly Yours,
Michael & Katie
Thanks for the follow up call yesterday to check in on the party for my friend Betsy and your awesome DJ, Andre. I just wanted you to know that Ed and I were thrilled with Andre’s professionalism and talent. He made the party.
He was very helpful and detailed. He was on top of the schedule for the evening and was accomodating to all the guests.
I would highly recommend him be at the top of your list for anyone requesting a and looking for a great DJ to make any event an top notch affair.
Looking forward to working with you again hopefully in the near future.
Thank you and Erin SOOO MUCH! YOU GUYS WERE GREAT!!!!! You moved everything along without a hitch and kept everyone having fun =) It really looked like everyone was having fun.
I’m sorry that its taken me so long to write you this email! I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the wonderful experience we had at our wedding. You and your team are the personification of the perfect wedding professionals. My parents, who are inherently hard to please, had endless words of praise for every detail from the lighting (my mom FINALLY admitted how great the room looked with the upwashing) to the dinner music choices, to the ability to keep everyone moving. We have been to quite a few weddings, with quite a few DJs, and none of them can hold a candle to Erin’s talent. You’ve heard all the stories, and to see Erin shatter every wedding DJ stereotype with ease, was quite amazing – even though I knew she was going to. I really appreciate you going the extra mile for us, with pricing and the the dancefloor lighting. EVERY one of my guests that I talked to after the wedding, young and old, told me that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. I attribute that praise to you and Erin – because the atmosphere and the music account for more than 90% of a good time. It means so much to us that you were able to provide that. I am going to miss chatting with you both – I really have come to think of you both as friends. It goes without saying that should we ever need your services again, you’re on speed dial. Have a happy 4th and enjoy wedding season!
The music at our wedding was amazing. Erin and mike were a great pair. They played every song we requested and all of our guests danced the night away. I highly recommend AMS to any couple getting married. They made the night!
Ashley and Rich
You and Erin did an excellent job with our wedding. We were very pleased with the music, especially the quality of the equipment. You really stuck with the music we wanted. We highly recommend your company.
I wanted to thank you for all your outstanding work! I love working with you and Erin, she is awesome and so professional! I have heard only positive feedback about the party, so having Erin play awesome music, worked out very well. Thank you!!
Mike Tierney & his team,
I want to thank you both for making our wedding very special. I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond to make everything happen! We had such a great time with everyone. These two not only do this for a living, but they do this because they love it! The music and the lighting were amazing. Erin is such an amazing DJ. The dance floor was filled from the moment it opened until the facility closed. Mike did an awesome job as the emcee. We had an awesome time and everyone had a blast! Our guests still talk about how fun that night was, giving us complements for choosing the best DJ/emcee. These two made the planning process a breeze, very professional, flexible, and very easy to get along with. Thank you again for everything. We shall refer you guys to everyone. We might just see you guys again on another crazy fun wedding 😉 Thank You!!!
John and Song
Mel and I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did last night at our wedding. For one night, you were like family to us. We really do appreciate the passion and talent that you both have.
Justin and Melissa Gill
Hey Mike. Just wanted to send you and your team a big thank you for everything you guys did. We couldn’t of been happier with the way things turned out. Music was great and the lighting was phenomonal. Thanks again for everything.
Gary and Ashley Takacs
Hi Mike and his team!
I just wanted to thank you both again for everything! Everyone was so impressed with the music and the light show! My dad says everyone kept telling him how good the music was and that they felt like the dance party never stopped all night! Probably my favorite moment from the dance party was seeing my Grandparents (who normally listen to church music) get down to Raise Your Glass by Pink! That was hilarious! Again, thank you so much for everything and I will definitely recommend AMS to anyone looking for an awesome DJ, Emcee, and/or Light show!!
My husband and I got married at The Society Room October 8th and we used AMS’ services for the music and lighting. When I walked into the space that night, the room honestly took my breath away – the purple (I admit, I was hesitant on this color at first, but Mike assured me it was the best for that room) upwash lighting changed the entire space completely and took it to an entirely different level. We are still hearing from our guests how unbelievable the lighting looked and of course, how much fun they had dancing the night away : ) My husband Bret and I are really into music, so we gave Erin a pretty detailed music list, but I know that’s definitely not required and Erin can tell just by a handful of songs the type of music you like – all depends on your preference. They were both incredibly easy to work with and very down to earth, which my husband and I loved. We were so happy we went with them – they definitely went above and beyond to make our night really special. Mike was a fantastic MC, which is something I think a lot of people forget the importance of – he was kind of like the glue that kept the whole thing together.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day a very memorable one. the music and lighting was totally awesome. It was so easy to work with both of you. Thanks again!

We chose AMS to handle our wedding based on critical factors: Unique perspective on music, aesthetic lighting, excellent equipment, and overall awesomeness. They provided us with meetings to organize our thoughts and ideas to make sure that they were on the same page in terms of what was important to us. They also shared their experiences in regards to the overall flow of the night and how to get the best out of our time on our special evening. Make no mistake, this is not a glorified clock radio speakers and disco ball fly-by-night operation like your uncle that plays music at the family re-union. Anyone looking for top of the line audio and lighting equipment, this is your source. Their equipment not only made our venue look and sound great, it also provided the perfect canvas for our photographer (BSC Photo Studio) to get the best shots possible. They exceeded our expectations in every way and provided the perfect atmosphere for us and our guests to celebrate our special day.
Thanks again! – Mike & Katie
