... 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.

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!!

Holy sh*t! We cannot express how happy we were with the entire experience working with DJ Aziz Idhamou & 617 Weddings. We had our wedding at Longwood's stunning venue, The Tower in downtown Boston, and having DJ Aziz was icing on the cake. From the first meeting to the last dance, his professionalism, expertise, guidance and attention to detail was beyond perfect. The music selection was spot-on - he blended different genres, built up an energetic atmosphere and kept the dance floor alive the entire night. The 617 DJ Booths are a work of art. The setup, lighting, screen etc. are extremely elegant. The 617 team created custom art from our engagement photos that were projected onto a large screen attached to the DJ booth, which set the perfect backdrop to the dance floor. We brought a DIY photo booth for our guests, and DJ Aziz even pulled the photos from the photo booth's web gallery throughout the night and created a beautiful (and hilarious) slide show that we watched from the dance floor! Beyond the music and dancing, DJ Aziz is a true MC. He spent time getting to know us and our vision, to make it a reality. We had a hard time picking out our intro music, but he found an up-tempo remix to a song we loved, used the energy to work the crowd, and created an unforgettable introduction for us. Throughout the night, despite all of our planning, we hit a few small snags, got a little behind schedule, and had to change the order of a few parts of the reception. But Aziz was on top of everything! He adapted flawlessly, and ensured the party kept flowing smoothly without missing a beat. But most of all, he was an absolute pleasure to work with - it felt like a family member was running the show. If we could change one thing, we wouldn't

DJ Aziz from 617 Weddings was fantastic! We had our wedding at Charter Oak Country Club and Aziz was extremely professional and first class. Throughout the whole planning process, he was readily available to help and extremely easy to communicate with about what our vision was. At the wedding, there were so many little details that really made the event special for us and our guests! The music was perfect and had the dance floor filled the whole night!

​​DJ Aziz Idhamou from 617 Weddings was amazing to work with! He was responsive and accommodating during the planning process. He coordinated well with our venue, the Sheraton Commender Hotel. On our wedding night, he was so energetic, and everyone enjoyed the dancing thanks to DJ Aziz!

DJ Aziz from 617 Weddings DJ'ed our June wedding at the Lenox Hotel. Aziz was super responsive leading up to the event and would proactively reach out to check if we needed anything, which we really appreciated. 617 has a portal where you fill out your forms and add in your music lists, but Aziz also recommends sharing links to spotify playlists with him so he knows the exact version of the song you want - highly recommend this! The day of the wedding, Aziz and his team was early to the venue and super easy with their set up. He was a great vendor the day of in that we didn't have to worry about him at all! He came in and did his thing and was a true professional. He kept the dance floor rocking all night long!

My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Aziz from 617 Weddings as our wedding DJ. From the minute we began working with him, he was extremely professional, responsive and helpful. Then, COVID hit and we made the difficult decision to postpone. Aziz was EXTREMELY flexible and understanding. Once we let him know our new date (and new venue) he remained flexible and attentive to what we wanted. He continued to be so easy to work with and spent time with us on the phone before our wedding day, helping us with the flow of the evening and various songs for each part of the night (Also for the two different cultures that united — Arabic & Italian). Once the night began, he was awesome start to finish. The dance floor was packed all night and he really knew how to work the room. It's impossible to keep track of how many guests said our wedding was a blast, in large part to the great work done by Aziz! Thank you Aziz for being a part of our special day and for making it so memorable! We highly recommend Aziz!
