... the epitome of talent!

Jimmie Espo is the epitome of talent, professionalism, fun, and cool. I may be biased, but my April 29th wedding at the Renaissance may have been the most fun I've had at a wedding. The dance floor was packed the entire night. He took note of all my random song requests, and seamlessly worked them in throughout the entire night. One guest described the wedding as "epic", another told me she felt "rejuvenated" after dancing the night away. Great personality, great musical timing, overall just a master of his craft. I'd like to hire him to DJ my life.

Most memorable day!

There aren’t enough great words to express how I feel about 617 Weddings! Jimmie Espo was highly recommended by our venue, The Cliff House Maine, so we immediately contacted him online hoping he was available for our May 2020 wedding and he was. Within a day, Jimmie contacted us by phone to discuss our wedding ceremony plans and we ended up talking for an hour. We hit it off like we had known each other for ever. He was such an amazing personality, friendly and put you at ease. He contacted us a few times as the planning moved forward and met in person and that day was the beginning of what is now an incredible friendship. Then Covid hit, our wedding in Maine needed to be canceled only 2 weeks before our date, which was devastating to us, we postponed until August 2020, but we really wanted our original May date for sentimental reasons. We decided to do a small backyard wedding for just family a few friends, then Jimmie calls us and offers to be our DJ and live-stream our wedding on Facebook so everyone could see us get married. We live 2 hours away from 617 Weddings + Events, but they backed up their equipment and drove to our house without hesitation so all our family and friends could see our special day!! It was truly a heartfelt gesture, that is something you can thank someone enough for. We did go through with our postpone wedding on August 16, 2020 at the Cliff House Maine and of course 617 Wedding + Events stood by us with all the date changes and Jimmie Espo was our amazing DJ again for this incredible wedding. His infectious smile and great personality lights up a room and makes everyone want to have a great time. Like I said, there are not enough words to express my thanks and appreciation to Jimmie Espo & 617 Wedding + Events for making our weddings the most memorable days of our lives. And above all, we’ve gained an amazing friend for life!!!

BEST DJ hands down!

Danny T is the absolute BEST DJ hands down. Everybody was on the dance floor having a blast!! (My dress ripping is proof of how hard we danced!) He's easy to work with and very responsive to messages. He also checks on you multiple times throughout the day to see if you need anything. I can't say enough good things about him. He's an all around good guy and such a great DJ. He knows how to make songs flow and guests complimented on how good he was after the wedding. Everyone needs him at your event!! Thank you Danny!!!

DJ Chuck was amazing! Throughout our entire wedding process from changing dates, to venue location, and party size he supported my husband and I through the crazy Covid wedding planning! The day of our wedding Chuck was fantastic- the music was spot on, our guest were enjoying themselves, and he even managed to integrate serbian/Italian music to accommodate both our families. When you work with Chuck you feel like you’re working with a friend you have known for years- it was a great experience and I would highly recommend him!

5 Stars!

Dimitri Soteropolus from 617 Weddings was incredible. Dimitri is super easy to talk to and professional. He made this the easiest part of planning our wedding. Whenever we had a question, we could email him and he would get back to us within a few hours (Even last minute changes). Their website is user-friendly. The wedding night was a blast thanks to DJ Dimitri. Even with our smaller numbers due to the pandemic, we did not want to leave the dance floor. If you don't want to stress about music for your wedding, I would highly recommend choosing Dimitri from 617 Weddings

We had DJ Jimmie Espo for DJ and lighting services for our wedding in Boston. Jimmie and team went above and beyond the entire process. This was more than just a DJ service. Jimmie was a true asset throughout the day, offering to help with whatever we needed, communicating with all other vendors and family members. He frequently checked in with us before the ceremony, through cocktail hour and dinner. If we needed a coffee, he made it happen. If something wasn’t perfect with our set up, he was on it. Then, we got to dancing, Jimmie KILLED IT! We told him we wanted a real party, everyone up, excited and dancing, and he delivered. He gave us the idea to start off with a dance set right after the first dance before dinner and it really set the tone. We gave Jimmie our overall style and taste with some songs that we like, and then let him just do his thing to keep people dancing all night. The dance floor was packed the entire reception, and all the guests were raving about how good the music was. He mixed songs on the fly perfectly, adjusted quickly to the crowd, and played a wide variety of songs that fit ours and our guests tastes. You will not regret having DJ Jimmie Espo and 617 weddings as your wedding music and lighting vendor.



617 Weddings & Jimmie Espo were seriously amazing to work with. They were so organized and had an online portal for wedding timeline, song requests and planning. On the day of, DJ Jimmie absolutely made the party. It was seriously a party before the salads came out, I've never seen anything like it - he played Sweet Caroline and people were dancing at their chairs it was amazing. He played every request we had and played a good mixture so that all guests at all age ranges were dancing and having a great time. Guests were on the dance floor the entire night, which is exactly what we wanted… it was incredible! People to this day have reached out to me saying it was the best wedding ever and how much they loved our DJ and the music. I could not be happier in choosing 617 for our big day. I would recommend to any bride/ groom or anyone looking to have an awesome party. I really hope to work with them again one day! THANK YOU SO MUCH JIMMIE!!! WE LOVE YOU!



We used 617 weddings for our wedding DJ and Uplighting. Our DJ was Jimmie Espo and he was incredible. We went to a wedding that he DJed a couple years before ours and knew we had to book him once we got engaged. He’s very easy to communicate with. He really knew how to read the crowd at our wedding. People were dancing all night long, well before dinner was even served! He knows how to help put on a good party.



We hired Jimmie from 617 weddings to DJ our wedding. From the first phone call we knew he would make our wedding everything we envisioned it would be. He was quick to respond to every email and text, no matter how big or small the questions or concern was. At our meeting before the wedding he really helped us with our wedding reception timeline and put us at a lot of ease of how everything would flow. He provided music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, all three were different spots of our venue. The reception was amazing! He had everyone dancing the entire night! From our younger guests to our older guests everyone was always on the dance floor. I had multiple people comment to me during the wedding how great the music was, and that it was the danciest wedding ever. 617 weddings use a simple portal to help add songs to playlists, must plays, and timelines of when songs should be played when. They also offered a photo booth with attendant and uplighting which we used. We would definitely recommend 617 weddings!



We are SO thankful we chose Jimmie Espo for our wedding at the Bedford Village Inn. I'm not from MA, but Jimmie & 617 weddings was highly recommended by everyone I spoke to, so I gave them a call. From our first conversation I could tell Jimmie was experienced and could handle all the aspects of the day perfectly. He answered my many texts and calls and we even met him at the 617 Weddings office to review details before the wedding day. The ceremony and reception was amazing and Jimmie handled all the details for that as well. Everyone was singing during dinner and crowded the dance floor before the dance floor was officially open (exactly what we wanted!!). Nobody wanted to stop dancing and everyone keeps talking about how much fun they had. Thank you so much!!

Chuck thank you for being you and making our night amazing


We were introduced to 617 Weddings and our DJ, Chuck, through our venue, the Willowdale Estate. From the start everyone we spoke with was responsive, super personal and got us both excited and relaxed about our big day. We knew that we were in great hands and that this was one area we didn't have to worry about. Chuck got the tone of each stage of our event perfect. We began with a mellow holiday feeling and the music built throughout the course of the evening into the dancing portion where everyone got on the floor and danced the night way. Thank you for making this the night of our lives, Chuck!


If we could give DJ Chuck Uglietta a million stars, we would! First of all, if you are getting married, you don't just want this guy to DJ your wedding, you NEED him! There are not enough words to describe how amazing Chuck is at his job. From the first time we contacted him until the last song he played at our wedding, he was always so friendly, professional, funny, upbeat, helpful, and the list goes on! Because of how amazing and talented he his, Chuck is in very high demand! BUT he ALWAYS responded to every text and email I sent him right away to answer any questions I had! Throughout our entire wedding and in the days following everyone kept telling us that our wedding was the best and most fun they had ever been to! And it was all because Chuck made the night! He was so outgoing and nice and friendly to EVERYONE and made everyone there feel like VIPs. One of the most special moments for us was the last slow song we danced to. And it was to a song Chuck had suggested to us in our meeting with him that neither myself or my husband had ever heard before. But Chuck is SO good at understanding couples and their personalities that it fit us SO WELL! It was the most perfect moment. This is a man that you want around if you want a good time!


617 Weddings and DJ Chuck were absolutely amazing! I had many guests from our wedding come up to me during the reception and in the days following to tell me how great our entertainment was. DJ Chuck was super helpful with music suggestions for little things I hadn't thought of, and made sure to have any unique songs we wanted. He even played them to us at our final meeting to be sure they were the exact songs we were looking for. I truly can't say enough about this company and especially DJ Chuck for all the wonderful service they provided, our wedding would not have been the night it was without them!

We had our daughters wedding on 1/14/24 and hired 617 weddings for the second time! Julio our DJ was the absolute best!! in my opinion you dont get any better than him. His energy was contagious and we knew that we had to hire him for our second daughters wedding. He knows how to get the crowd on the dance floor. Even my 84 year old father was out there dancing all night. Thank you 617 weddings and Julio!! for the amazing uplighting and sparklers too! you will be our #1 choice for any event we have. Best Regards, Rita and Jack Durgin.



We had Julio for our wedding 10/20/23 and from the moment we first chatted with him we just knew he was the DJ for us! He goes above and beyond for his brides and grooms, coming early to watch our ceremony and meet our guests so he could add personal touches later in the reception. He noticed a certain Taylor swift song was quoted during our ceremony and he played it later during dinner. Our guests were dancing all night long and he was great at reading the crowd and taking requests. He would wait to make sure me and my husband were in the room to play songs we asked for and if he saw that we got held up on our way to the dance floor, he kept that song going a little longer until we could get there. His energy was unmatched and he made our night so special. 10/10 you should hire Julio!

617 Weddings was great and easy to work with! Their online portal made planning very easy. We worked with DJ Julio specifically who set up planning calls ahead of time and was very professional day of. He brought lighting with him to make our venue even more special. We had picked 617 Weddings because I had attended another wedding where they were the DJ, both had people on the dance floor all night! Thank you Julio and team!

Matthew K.


DJ Julio Sanabia from 617 Weddings was an absolute 10/10 - could not give a higher recommendation! Everything from the initial planning to the actual wedding was easy, professional, and detailed. When it is the biggest day of your life you want someone that has been there a million times before and he absolutely has. We gave him guidance on what we wanted to be played/not played and he took that and ran with it. Got the crowd pumped up and on the dance floor the entire night. Knows how to go off-the-cuff when needed. Again, couldn't recommend a DJ any more than Julio and 617 Weddings.

DJ Julio from 617 Weddings was the absolute best!!!! He made our wedding at The Commons 1854 in Topsfield a dream come true. Our guests have been raving about how much fun he was and what an amazing variety of songs were played to appeal to all generations. DJ Julio felt like my personal hype man all night and got everyone smiling and dancing the night away! Our photographer, John LoConte was also with 617 Weddings and was so thorough, patient, and kind. His experience at The Commons 1854 was beyond helpful- I know we have so many amazing shots and I cannot wait to see all of the finished photos! Also major kudos for his expertise in making sure my wedding train and veil were placed perfectly for our photos!! Everyone we spoke with from 617 Weddings was fantastic and so helpful. They are communicative and very detail oriented to make sure your event is everything you dreamed and more!

617 Weddings did not disappoint! When I tell you they were professional, helpful, involved, and delivered, it's an understatement. I worked with Julio Sanabria and he was AH-MAZING! We danced our lives away and he kept the dancefloor packed from beginning to end. He made my wedding a dream come true and I could not be more thankful. at such a stressful time, 617 weddings really came through and made things easy and were so accomodating. Thank you for being everything I thought you would be per the reviews. I will forever refer friends and family to 617 weddings.


We worked with 617 Weddings for our DJ, Photography, Videography and Uplighting. Everything was absolutely perfect! Julio Sanabia was our DJ and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. He had our guests up dancing the entire night, and all we keep hearing about is how awesome of a time everyone had. If we could repeat the entire wedding process and day over again, we would definitely still go with 617 Weddings ! Not a doubt in my mind!


DJ Julio Sanabia was absolutely amazing!! Our guests were on the dance floor before dinner was even served. He was very professional during our planning sessions and really got to know my husband and I and what type of music we wanted him to play. We wanted our first dance to be a mix between 3 songs and he sent us several versions that he worked on so it was just right for our big day! He really went the extra mile. He also brought a screen to show pictures that had been taken at the church as well as through the rest of the night. This was a very nice added touch! We highly recommend DJ Julio of 617 Weddings!


Our guests, as well as ourselves had an incredible time, thanks so much in part to DJ Julio Sanabia and 617 Weddings. I did not feel like I had to worry about a thing. The energy that the DJ brought was perfect for our wedding atmosphere. He listened to all of our thoughts about how the night would go, and when it came time for our wedding day I knew we were in good hands. Many of our guests complimented us on our vendor choice and were impressed by how the night unfolded. I highly recommend DJ Julio!
