Raves and Reviews

See what Forte customers have to say about us!
"HOWARD WAS AMAZING! Not only was he a phenomenal DJ that knew how to read the crowd and respond in turn, he was a great emcee, and he brought his own lighting system to spruce up our dance floor! He met with us several times to ensure that he was always up-to-date on any changes going on in our wedding. He even came to the rehearsal to help coordinate and let us practice to the right music. Before the ceremony, I relinquished all control to him (not easy for me), but he had the night run so smoothly. He kept everyone having fun on the dance floor and was very charming. He even joked around with the best man to help him relax a little before his speech. When my father started getting too emotional/nervous during our father/daughter dance, I simply gave Howard a knowing nod and he gently faded out the music. All of my friends and family told me that they've never had more fun at a wedding and I know it's mostly because of Him." - Melissa Wolfe - Bride

"Forte Talent is the BEST DJ vendor out there hands down. When he told us our price quote for everything, we thought he was kidding. Knowing what I know now, I would have paid ten times what we paid just to have Forte Talent as our DJ Vendor. We got so many compliments about all of our vendors, but everyone could not stop talking about how awesome our DJ was. Now that I have been a bride, I can truly say that a DJ can make or break your wedding. Howard, you are awesome. We are blessed to have met you and your wife and to have worked with you. You and your wife are truly amazing people. Who'd have known in hiring a D.J. we'd gain a friend. Thank you again!!!!!!"

"I just want to send you a thank you for your work in coordinating the Carlos' band and dancers for the Grange Insurance final night gala. The dance acts were a hit as well as the band. I also want to thank you for sending Howard down to work with us on-site. He was absolutely fabulous to work with and he really knew what he was doing. He did a great job making sure the dancers and band were on que at the necessary times and he was always right to answer any questions our clients had regarding the entertainment. He truly worked his butt off!" - Julie Jezdimir Program Manager Experience Florida, Inc.

"Howard, our DJ, was great! He kept me (the bride) informed throughout the night of what was happening next (it was all such a blur, I forgot) and even came downstairs with appetizers for the groom and I while we waited to be announced into the reception.

- "We hired Howard at Forte Talent for our wedding this summer and he was an outstanding MC and DJ! Howard took the time to meet with both of us, as well as our families, multiple times before the event and he helped us create a flawless timeline for our wedding reception. Howard was more than a DJ; he coordinated an amazing party that my husband, myself, and our guests will never forget! I highly recommend him"
