If you are seeking an unforgettable experience, Exclusive Events is the way to go! Yvan was the BEST DJ I have ever encountered! I have been to multiple weddings but I have never seen a DJ that had the ability to engage the crowd the entire time! The music was on point, the games were creative, and there was no dull moment at our wedding!
Yvan, Kent and I were so honoured to have you be our DJ and MC. You have made our wedding a very memorable experience that we will cherish forever!!
You are #epic!!!

There are not enough words to explain how much we love and appreciated you! From the very first moment that we contacted you, you made us feel like “you’ve got this”. You took the time to understand who we are, what we liked and what we hoped for from our wedding day. Then you sent us an excel sheet about one week later… and that’s when we fell in love you with guys. You were professional, organized, responsive.. everything that made working with you a breeze throughout the year. You guided us when we were indecisive, and handled our changes like it was nothing. We tried to pick our vendors based on who we could be friends with, and that could not be more true with you!
Then came the wedding day. Despite the “tropical rain storm” and working under a tent in the elements, you set our party off right, from the very start! Our guests are all still raving about what an amazing night it was, and whether or not they recognize it, Dan and I have YOU to thank for that. You went with the flow, adjusted on the fly, and made the whole night feel like we had planned the best party ever. In fact, YOU had planned the best party ever and we got to just enjoy our wedding night without thought or worry. You allowed us to be 100% in the moment. Your music and DJing was ON POINT — from the jazz wu-tang during the cocktails, to the rnb requests… thank you for incorporating it all.
Our first dance under the stars, surrounded by our family and friends with the sparklers.. that was a dream come true. We mentioned the idea to you, and did nothing more to plan for it other than buy sparklers. And you made it all happen perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for more, and it was every bit as magical as we imagined.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. For everything you did for us, for being a part of our day, for making our wedding night everything that we dreamed of, for making our party one that the guests will remember as “the best time ever”.
Our ONLY regret is not grabbing a photo with you!!!!

What an amazing experience it was to work with Yvan and Exclusive Events. So professional and worth every penny. He made our wedding look so amazing with his lighting and with the music and MC. He even brought glow sticks for our guests, which was a wonderful surprise. I couldn’t recommend him enough and would be honoured to hire him again for any other future events.

Yvan and his team were exceptional. Growing up with Yvan, we chose him knowing his commitment to excellence.
We were provided a great outline of suggestions of how the evening could proceed and were we given full autonomy to music choices.
If you could say, the whole night went off without a hitch!
Yvan’s wit made the evening as fun as possible. Everybody loved the music choices and there was an amazing party.
Anytime we had a question Yvan was there for us.
We cannot say more other than praise. It was the best day of our life and we were so happy that Yvan and Exclusive Events were there to help make it possible.

We met with Yvan at a coffee shop to discuss his services . We knew immediately we were in good hands as his knowledge, experience and professionalism is outstanding. The entire event was scheduled to-the-minute, and was adjusted to our needs. Very structured and detail oriented, which helped us coordinate with other service providers. Every step of the day/night was on schedule (wow!) and the quality of the sound/lighting was amazing. Very receptive to special requests and had all the music we wanted. Very lively MC and tailored the entertainment to our liking and crowd. All the guests loved them. They were instrumental in the success of our evening. Our minds were at ease for the entire event so all we had to do was enjoy. Can’t recommend enough.

It is so hard to put into words an experience. We often say “you had to be there”. Well, this can be said for Exclusive Events! They are the only DJs I have ever seen that were able to get those people at every wedding that just won’t dance, to dance! My new husband and I really enjoyed the “who parties harder” game. It was fantastic! All our guests were amazed and couldn’t stop talking about it for days afterwards. Also, it is so easy working with Yvan, that you feel that you’ve always known him. When planning a wedding it could be very overwhelming but Yvan made the music part so easy and his itinerary worked like clockwork from the ceremony to the cocktail and then the reception, there was a flow that seemed natural. I highly recommend Exclusive Events. Not only will you not be disappointed but you’ll probably plan some party just to hire them again. Worth every penny and more!!

A thousand thanks for the awesome delivery Yvan and Fabrice did at our wedding. I never doubted Exclusive Events would totally rock this evening out, but my expectations were WAY surpassed. Yvan is an amazing DJ, people loved every second of the evening, everything was perfect. They will definitely be on my recommendations list for anything that requires animation. Keep doing what you’re doing, because you kick ass at it. Also, many thanks for escorting us through the preparation process. It was a stressful time for us to think about everything, but with Yvan’s constant reassurance and experience, everything went ultra smoothly. I hope we’ll get to work together again soon enough. Cheers!!!

We can’t say enough good things about Yvan and his team at Exclusive Events. We live in NY and planned a wedding in Montreal. From the beginning, Yvan made himself available around our busy schedule. He listened to us for the type of music we wanted, had great suggestions for the wedding and planned the pacing. We also used him as our MC – his professionalism and humor was a hit among our guests. The sound and lighting was also on point. They are the company to go to for any event – absolutely perfect!!
Event: Spouse’s 40th Birthday Party

Location: Chalet Marie-Victorin, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville
Our objective was to throw a great party to celebrate Cheryl’s 40th birthday with friends that love to let loose. We envisioned an environment where the group could dance and have fun without having to deal with the negative aspects of a club. Yvan and Exclusive Events were instrumental in helping us realize a perfect evening. Exclusive Events helped transform a community center into a fun, modern dance environment thanks to the professional lighting and impressive setup. Yvan played music that matched the mood of the guests and enhanced the mood as the night progressed. Cheryl had a wonderful time, in large part thanks to Exclusive Events. We highly recommend them! Thanks Yvan.

Yvan Caro hosted our corporate holiday event and kept the evening moving along at just the right pace. Our guests were treated to music from a variety of genres & he quickly got everyone on their feet to the dance floor. We danced till the wee hours of the morning. Yvan was also a great MC & flawlessly executed our treasure hunt game. I have no hesitation to recommend Yvan & will reach out to him as well should we require his services in the future.

If you are looking for an amazing DJ/Host/MC/Entertainer – Look no further! I hired Yvan for a Holiday Party and he knocked it out of the park. Pre-event, he was attentive to my needs and keen to know everything about the function, in order to ensure it was a success. On-site, he was a master at the turn table – gauging audience reaction and mood, taking requests and working the crowd. His music catalogue was up to date, he knew the latest hits, and transitioned types of music effortlessly. His load-in/load-out was flawlessly executed and he worked super well with the venue. Had I known how good he was, I would have hired him for another function I had the next day in Toronto. If you want your guests on their feet, singing in the microphone, and closing down the hall, book him!

My husband and I met with Yvan about a year and a half before our destination wedding in Montreal. He was recommended to us after the first DJ we contacted was not available on our wedding date. We met him for coffee and immediately felt a connection, which was so important considering he was also going to act as our MC. I can’t tell you in words how much we appreciated Yvan’s professionalism and responsiveness! Any questions or concerns we had for him were addressed immediately; which was a huge relief considering we were planning our entire wedding from away! The “day of” spreadsheet that he provided was integral in helping us to envision the flow of the event. As far as the wedding day itself, Yvan and his partner Fabrice were outstanding!! We were truly able to just show up and party with our family and friends. I can’t tell you how many people came up to us asking how long we’d known Yvan, because it seemed he had known us for the entirety of our relationship! The execution of all the little details we asked them to include was flawless. I’ve also had several people ask if Yvan and Fabrice would consider travelling to several different Canadian cities to DJ/MC their upcoming weddings! Honestly, they were just THAT awesome!! Thank you isn’t enough – but truly from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Yvan and Fabrice for helping to make our big day a dream come true! Jaci and Bobby

It was absolutely wonderful having Exclusive Events (Yvan and Fabrice) help my husband and I with our wedding. From our first meeting, Yvan made us feel comfortable and helped remove a lot of the stress that can come along with planning a wedding. If ever we had any questions or concerns, they were answered very quickly. The day of the wedding was wonderful and passed without a problem. We received many many compliments on the music and they got the party started with some really fun ideas. We are both so thankful that we had them as our DJs/MCs!

EE was exceptional throughout the whole preparation of our wedding day. Yvan really ensured that all the key elements that were important to us, we’re part of the entertainment at our wedding celebration. He was always quick &effective to respond our messages and made communication very easy throughout the whole process. We would highly reccomend EE for any event. They are by far the most personalised entertainment you can have & they make every detail super special. Very professional & fun to work with. We rated them 5 stars but there are no amount of stars that could rate how great EE really is. Thanks for the best wedding party EE!

What can I say about Yvan? From the minute we sat down with him at the coffee shop to go over the main ideas for our big day, we clicked and instantly felt a connection and an ease of mind. He was such a down to earth person, so easy to share your ideas, communicate your concerns and Yvan even came up with a wedding day timeline proposal the same night we met him. Talk about speed and flexibility! Throughout the planning process, Yvan adjusted the timeline and edited songs to fit our needs in a very timely manner and his final schedule was so detailed that we ended up sharing it with all the other vendors and the wedding party, which not only saved time but simplified the communication process and made the planning process stress-free!! At the wedding, you could tell Yvan was very organized & prepared and most importantly so comfortable behind the mic and knows how to work the crowd and get the party going in such a fun yet professional way! The entire day flowed so smoothly and perfectly as planned thanks to Exclusive Events and their dedicated work, their passion & love for what they do; they simply excel it. ‘Thanks you’s’ will never fully reflect our gratitude because they played such a great part of our wedding day’s success! Christina & I will forever be grateful for having Yvan & Fabrice as part of our big day! We would recommend Exclusive Events without a blink or a shadow of a doubt. It was an absolute pleasure to have you guys among us that day! Thanks again for making our wedding day a success, and for creating memories of this magical day! Christina & Binh

Yvan is a gem of a person. He is also the consummate professional. He is attentive, selfless, and knowledgeable. He knows the day is about the married couple and he wants them to have an incredible day. He also knows his music and is incredibly well-prepared. We met once before the wedding where we discussed what we wanted in terms of music preferences and he took care of the rest. He also raised things to our attention that we neglected to think of which proved very helpful. On the morning of the wedding (we had a noon wedding), his team showed up on time, were incredibly polite, set up the equipment seamlessly, and were gone before we knew it. Yvan showed up a little while later, completely prepared, and the wedding music went off without a hitch. We had an outdoor wedding and despite the monsoon rain that fell, Yvan kept the music flowing. Despite the canopy meant to keep him and his equipment dry failing, and needing to move inside, Yvan kept on smiling while he quickly relocated his equipment without the slightest bit of anger or frustration. He has an infectious smile and clearly loves doing what he does. He is also incredibly reasonable to deal with financially. We loved using him as the DJ for our wedding and would highly recommend anyone else looking for a DJ to use him as well. Yona & Rob

There is a LOT to say about Exclusive Events (lead by Yvan Caro). Seriously, from the moment James (my now husband) and I met with him, he was a true professional, he understood exactly the type of DJ and MC we were looking for. He came incredibly prepared, from that initial meeting came up with a preliminary timeline of the night (even though we had not even officially booked with him at that point). He was extremely good at asking questions and understanding our needs. We also had a band playing spanish Latin American music during short portions of the night, and Yvan was amazing at coordinating and leading the pace of the timeline. The music EE played was on point to what my husband and I like, as well as what our guests wanted to hear. It was the BEST party ever, all our guests were dancing, plenty of them told us that same night as well as weeks afterwards how amazing our DJ/MC was. Believe me, planning a wedding can be stressful, and we are just so happy we booked with EE. Every one of us at the reception party just loved Yvan’s jokes, they were said at the appropriate moments, totally on point for the occasion, he was quick enough to catch our guest’s mood and say a few punch lines here and there that were just priceless. Early in the night, James and I were running late on the timeline due to the receiving line taking longer than expected, and Yvan was great at letting us know that he got us covered and re-arranged a few items to ensure we still got to do everything but also catch up to the delay. Overall, if you have any party or wedding reception, book them well in advance! They are just great!!! Book with this guy; he’s perfect. Pros : Everything. Cons : Nothing.

All we can say is AMAZING. Yvan Caro and his partner Fabrice made our wedding day stress free and more fun than I could have ever imagined. Thank you so much Yvan, you are so sweet and your passion for DJing shines through your work. From the day I met you I had a feeling you were good at what you do! And thank you for the encouraging “you got this” gesture you gave me just before I walked down the aisle. On behalf of all my guests that have been coming to us almost every hour since the wedding, they wanted me to say you were amazing. The best party they have ever been to!! you know its a good party when your guest have you on chairs in the air! We will never forget this day thank you! I HIGHLY suggest Yvan for anyone looking for a dj.

When we first saw Yvan at a friend’s wedding, we knew after 5 minutes of seeing and hearing him that we wanted him to be our DJ. We weren’t wrong, he was professional, approachable and a perfectionist. He not only entertained the guests but he made sure everything was going as planned behind the scenes. We’ve been to multiple weddings, in fact, we went to 6 one year, and we’ve never been loved a DJ as much. There wasn’t one thing that we would change with how he handled our wedding. He was simply fantastic!

Honestly, there are no words to describe how amazing Exclusive Events really is. We first saw them in action at our friends Winnie & Kalvin’s wedding back in 2013. They actually booked with Exclusive Events as a result of Erica’s suggestion, which came from recommendations by a couple of friends. And let us tell you, not only did the bride and groom love them, we did too! When came time to plan our own wedding, it was a no-brainer to set up an appointment with Yvan. All the details that we didn’t think about, he had it all down and made lots of suggestions to help us along the way. Communication was fairly quick, especially since he had to help both of us separately plan our lip sync battle, which was a hit! The itinerary was followed to a tea, which gave us time to eat! Completely thankful that our Do NOT Play list was respected, even though we know there were requests for some of the artists/songs. It was almost as if we had a wedding planner. True professionalism all the way, and always with a smile. Not a single complaint from the family, but definitely lots of praise. Thank you, thank you, thank you, a million times over. You helped make our day incredible and we can’t thank you enough! Love, Erica & Greg

Exclusive Events (Yvan) is amazing!!! We would definitely select them again, and recommend them to our family and friends. From the beginning to the end, Yvan was professional and supportive. He made sure that our big day ran without a hitch, keeping us on schedule while entertaining the crowd with fantastic music, custom lighting and comic relief. We loved Yvan’s charisma and energy, and above all his ability to naturally connect with our guests – so much so that many of them complimented us on our choice of MC/DJ. Thank you Yvan for making our reception so memorable, you’re truly the best!!! 🙂 Karyn & Chris

We would like to give a special thanks to Yvan Caro, EXCLUSIVE EVENTS for doing an amazing job at our wedding. They have exceeded beyond our expectations giving us a memorable night. Everything just flowed smoothly and everyone really had a blast partying late into the night. The game “Which Side Parties the Hardest,” was a crazy dance off between both families lol! That was one crazy dance battle lol! Exclusive Events really made it fun and entertaining for everyone. It came to the point that even the elders came on the dance floor and showed off their skills lol! From the very beginning, Exclusive Events truly shined and gave us a party to remember! Our night was just amazingly fun and truly a night to remember. We thank Exclusive Events from the bottom of our heart. For future Grooms and Brides, we highly recommend Exclusive Events. You will not be disappointed. You will be very ecstatic to have them host your events.

Yvan was amazing from start to finish. We had reached out to a few potential DJs when planning our wedding, but as soon as we had our first Skype call with Yvan (we are from Calgary planning our destination wedding from afar), we knew he would be a good fit with us. Yvan was on top of things from the get-go, sending us a spreadsheet to work on in the coming months, following up in those months to let us know we were on his radar, and then in the month or two leading up to the wedding, he was consistently revising and ultimately finalizing the day-of schedule, play list and AV equipment necessary to make our wedding day proceed without a hitch. He took care of the sound check with our Officiant and vocalist, arriving earlier than planned without a complaint so as to accommodate our people. The music… Yvan is truly talented. We had several people comment on how great the music was during the reception. Who even remembers the music during a reception?? And the party music was great – everyone, even the ones who NEVER get out to the dance floor, were dancing the night away. Yvan’s mixes were smooth and his sense of what to play and when is impeccable. He totally “got” us and our guests, and while we didn’t play the typical wedding-type “games”, he didn’t pressure us and instead went with the flow of what we wanted for the evening. After attending our wedding and hearing Yvan’s musical contribution to the event, my maid of honour and her fiance decided they would have to find a DJ for their own wedding in Halifax (as opposed to using an iPod), as Yvan just added so much to the evening. Yvan came highly recommended to us by other vendors in Montreal, and he lived up to the hype in every way. Professional, talented, kind, responsive and fun. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to hire a DJ for a wedding or any other type of event.

My husband and I planned a destination wedding to Montreal and our wedding planner recommended Yvan at Exclusive Events for our wedding. Honestly, I was a little nervous about selecting a DJ as a number of my friends have had negative experiences with unprofessional and unreliable wedding DJs. From the get-go, Yvan was amazing! During our initial Skype meeting, it became clear that Yvan took his job seriously, respected our wishes, and was very professional. Unlike many other DJs that I’ve spoken with, Yvan encouraged us to send him a list of must-play songs (of unlimited size) and, as far as I can tell, all of these songs were played at the wedding. Throughout the planning process, Yvan was extremely responsive and would sometimes send emails just to let me know that we were still on his radar. I really appreciated this touch, as it can sometimes feel like your vendors have forgotten about you throughout the planning process. He was also very open to feedback and extremely easy to get along with. It was clear that Yvan was invested in making sure that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. On the day of the wedding, Yvan was amazing! He was a great MC – he was able to get the crowd pumped up when needed and added in some appropriate humor without any cheezyness or schmoozyness. He was also an amazing DJ! Our dance floor was packed all night long and he was great about taking requests from guests. It’s been three weeks since our wedding, and my guests are still talking about how great Yvan and the music was at our wedding. I cannot recommend Exclusive Events highly enough – worth every penny!

As we concluded our first meeting with Yvan from Exclusive Events, we felt a big weight had been lifted from our shoulders. Not only were we confident we had picked the right DJ, but as my fiancée and I were planning the whole wedding on our own, Yvan’s immense expertise became our “wedding planner”! The level of detail he got into during that very first pleasant conversation reassured us on several levels: We wanted our party to be epic and last throughout the night while being mindful of my very religious parents; We wanted the music to reach our different nationalities; We were doing this in an unusual place where nothing could go wrong! Through our subsequent meetings, Yvan came up with brilliant ideas and suggestions that we had not even thought of! Now that our big day is over, I confirm that Yvan exceeded our expectations BY FAR and the level of professionalism and engagement on his end are absolutely priceless! (And by the way, the party lasted until we actually did a “last call” because guests were having such a blast!) I cannot recommend him enough and can only hope he will still be DJ’ing in 25 years when we renew our vows! Thanks Yvan for making our big day the most memorable!!

When we got into our car after our introductory meeting with Exclusive Events, we just looked at each other and knew we found our DJ. Not only did they make us feel comfortable and have a positive attitude, they were very well prepared and gave us a sample mix-cd and a form we could start filling in as a preliminary DJ wedding plan. What was evident from that first meeting was how passionate they are about making every event special. We immediately felt we could TRUST them!
With so many things to organize, prepare for and deal with in planning a wedding, hiring the right people is a must; Exclusive Events are the people you can trust!
Our wedding was at a sugar shack, at a location Yvan had never performed, and to ensure he was ready for the wedding, we visited the venue together to plan everything out ahead of time rather than on the day of. The venue’s event planner told us that out of 19 years of planning weddings, Yvan was the second DJ to actually show up beforehand to plan his set-up and select the correct equipment for the job, so that there would be no last-minute surprises. She grabbed his card.
As for the music and animation: we were still getting compliments from our guests and the venue staff days after the wedding. (Actually, we’re still getting compliments…) It was amazing. With only a few songs to draw their inspiration from, they were able to find our style and kept the party going. Additionally, when we needed a song for a specific time during the wedding and didn’t know what to choose, Yvan made the perfect recommendations. He was also able to include traditions from both families seamlessly. If we ever need another DJ for a special event, we’re calling Exclusive Events. To anyone looking for DJ right now, if Exclusive Events are available – book them!
Cheers to you, Exclusive Events; you made our night unforgettable and we are very thankful!

First, I have to admit I was a little biast when it came to choosing our DJ. This is because I’ve known Yvan since high school. I already knew that he was a great person, paid attention to detail and, of course, had great taste in music. But, this also meant that my expecations would be just a little higher. Marco still insisted that we shop around a little… and we’re glad we did because it just ensured that we made the right decision. Yvan gave us personalized service and took the time to figure out what WE wanted our day to be, as opposed to some of the others who would just try to sell themselves and their ideas. Yvan proved that this is not just a job to him… it’s his passion.
I remember making a call to him from the limo on our way to the reception with some last minute changes. He made them all happen seamlessly as if it was always part of the original plan. Even with my higher expectations, Yvan did not disappoint ! There were 3 other weddings at the same hall and we outlasted them all! The music kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. Our guests are still talking about how great the DJ was. I just can’t imagine what our night would have been like without Yvan & Exclusive Events !
I wish we could do it all over again and we will definitely recommend him to all our friends for any event. Thank you so much!

They were accomplices to make this an unforgettable evening for us and also for our guests. They are very flexible and have a varied musical repertoire. They fulfilled all their promises, especially to make us dance all night. I highly recommend the services of Exclusive Events for all who wish to have a successful wedding and especially have peace of mind.

Working with Yvan was an absolute pleasure. We first saw him in action at another wedding and knew right away that we wanted him to MC at our wedding. Yvan epitomizes professionalism. Every email, text message or call was promptly responded to, and I mean promptly (even while he was golfing). But most important of all, Yvan made our wedding better then we could have imagined!! We could not have chosen a better person to work with! We would highly recommend him to anyone planning a wedding!

Hiring Exclusive Events for our wedding was hands down the best decision we made. We always heard that in order to have a good reception, one of the most important pieces was to have good music and after seeing our guests getting up to dance even before the first course was served all the way to the end of the night we saw first hand the amazing job Exclusive Events did. We provided Yvan a general feel for what kind of music genres we wanted to hear and he gave us exactly that, the music ambiance to the feel of the room was literally perfect. Transitions in and out of songs between speeches and performances were very smooth and transitioning to different music tempos and genres were very well done. We heard nothing but compliments as the music aspect of our reception was always first to be mentioned when people were talking about it.
Professionalism was always there as Yvan quickly responded to our emails within 24 hours (frankly within 1 hour most of the time) and informed us if there were going to be days where he could not be reached. He always helped us consider the different factors and options when planning the party aspect of our wedding, but always heard our ideas first and built on that before even providing his own recommendation if ever which was greatly appreciated. They were definitely well prepared for our day as it went so smoothly, no problems, the music equipment was perfect for our venue and music filled the whole reception room to help create our ambiance; it wasn’t too loud or too low.
We 110% recommend Exclusive Events for any event and to be honest we have already referred them to friends looking to get married for next year. Thank you guys for your help in making our wedding night so memorable! We couldn’t have done it without you!
All the best,
Brian and Pamela

Yvan, let me start by saying that you exceeded all my expectations regarding your services. When we first met, I took an instant liking to you and, at the time, Tommy. You are down to earth and very professional. You knew exactly how to put my clients at ease by asking the right questions and getting them involved. Most importantly, you asked them the key questions which were: “What kind of music do you like?” and “What kind of party to do want?” Let’s just say you passed the test! My clients were so happy with you guys that they couldn’t wait for that day to come.
During the last stretch before the big day, you put their minds at ease with your attention to detail, your professionalism and your ability to coordinate every little detail that they wanted to include in their schedule. I knew then that we would have an amazing party and a great time working together. I was right! The party was amazing, the crowd was dancing all night and, on top of it all, I got compliments on your services. We also got the pleasure of meeting Fabrice for the first time and he also impressed us with his professionalism and his easy going attitude. This, my friend, is what we call a great success! I am looking forward to working with you guys again and, be sure, you will be highly recommended to my future clients.
Thank you very much once again. Until the next party!

Exclusive Events took care of all the uplighting, dance floor lighting, ceremony equipment with an incredible glowing DJ booth that really set the tone for a party! What we really appreciated from Exclusive Events was that we paid one price and whatever we needed he made it happen for us at no extra cost. To date, we have received comments of how incredibly beautiful our wedding was and how incredibly amazing our DJ and MC were. Yvan made sure that everyone was having an incredible time. He got both of our families and all of our friends dancing ALL night and even got my grandmother to do a “sexy dance”!!! It was such an amazing party!!! Exclusive Events is the ONLY company you should be booking for your wedding. Put your trust in Yvan and you won’t be let down, we guarantee you that! We can’t wait to see them in action at our friends wedding this coming October!

Going beyond the great music, we’ve found that two qualities are priceless in wedding vendors: professionalism & personality. Exclusive Events couldn’t score higher on either front. From the moment we met Yvan & Tommy, we trusted them completely. Their organization & attention to detail made planning completely stress-free. We actually used EE’s “day-of” schedule template to plan the timing of our night (we didn’t have a wedding planner), which was an invaluable resource. They worked to find out our vision for the wedding and then tailored their style to make it a perfect evening, at a very fair price.
Just as importantly, Yvan & Tommy are the kind of people that you WANT to have around you on your wedding day. They’re fun, friendly, good people, and I can’t overstate how nice it is to look at your vendors and think: “Man, it’s nice having them here at our wedding.”
We wholeheartedly recommend hiring Exclusive Events – you won’t be disappointed!

Karine: I can not thank you enough for DJing our party. You truly captured the vibe that we were going for and picked all the right songs at the right times throughout the evening to keep the party going. I can honestly tell you that everyone loved the music. I appreciate all your work, including the set-up of your equipment, your input on schedule and flow of the night, the few times you took the mic, which were totally on point and I have to say that it did not go unnoticed that you played every single song requested! Amazing. We had a couple of party planning friends in the room, who I know picked up your cards and I hope that you can get a few gigs from them!
Thanks again! Congrats on your engagement and all the best on your wedding planning 😉
Mylene: It was indeed a night to remember and you were just amazing. Your commentary was excellent. Thanks for everything. It was magical, in every possible way. Will be sure to spread the word and congrats on the engagement!!!!

We had a great experience from start to finish with Yvan, Tommy and Fabrice. They were professional, incredibly well organized and just simply really fun, pleasant people to work with. There is no ego with these guys. They genuinely enjoy what they do and it carries through the whole process. For us, the MC and DJs had one of the most important responsibilities of the evening: Making sure everyone had fun. They exceeded all of our expectations. All of our guests had a great time and the music was fantastic. We also needed a bilingual reception (french-english) and they made sure nobody was left out because of the language barrier.
We’re really happy we hired them for what was the most important day of our lives.

EE. One of the best decisions at our wedding. We always knew how we wanted our evening to go, from the style of music, the flow of the night, and an overall ambiance. So, from the first time we met, Exclusive Events were right up our alley. They understood exactly what we wanted, and before long, were bouncing ideas off each other with so much enthusiasm and excitement, painting a picture of how they can make our dream reception happen and more. From then, we knew it had to be Exclusive Events. Tommy and Yvan were a “must-have”. They fully delivered on the night, even more perfectly than we could have ever imagined.
A Master of Ceremony who has a great sense of humor, who is full of charm, and absolutely captivating. Tommy is your man. There are introductions, toasts and speeches to dances and games. But it isn’t just what took place but how Exclusive Events planned it and Tommy’s delivery. The evening ran smoothly keeping everything fun and light-hearted, humorous yet classy, and, importantly, fully engaging everyone in the room making our guests feel truly involved. It was important to us. Tommy really set the tone from the moment we burst in through the doors as the new Mr & Mrs until the very end. It was natural and effortless.
A perfect evening calls for perfect ambiance created by seamless endless music. Yvan is a talented DJ and he brought his A-game. It was classy and elegant during the cocktail and the courses, and in between, cranked up for some serious party time. Yvan even gave all of our song requests airtime. The dance floor was packed and our guests kept moving. The highlight: Who’s Side Parties Harder? A crazy dance off between the Mr & Mrs and their crews. What a way to bring us all together! It was amazing!
Fun, friendly, easy-going, charismatic. Exclusive Events were so professional, as well as respectful and accommodating to all of our requests. Tommy and Yvan made our wedding, and the entire experience leading up to it, so special as they have kept us and our best interests in mind. They went that extra mile and it really showed. We feel that it is because they care about what they do and the people they do it for.
Thank you, Tommy and Yvan! Thank you, Exclusive Events, for helping to create the most memorable night of our lives. It would be long before it is ever forgotten, by us, our families and our friends. What a wedding! We have so much gratitude towards all you both have done to make that happen.

Yvan and Tommy were referred to us through our photographer. From the very beginning, we liked them. Very easy to get along with and very flexible. Because we had a baby, we asked if they could meet us at our place after we put him to sleep. No problem. The 2 hour meeting was amazing. Both Yvan and Tommy were very organized and at the same time very affable. We had very specific ideas of what we didn’t want for the wedding, and Joel being from Northern Ireland had his own traditions, and they integrated everything seamlessly. The ideas they brought to the table to get the party going and get everyone involved; the detailed schedule they created that we ended up sending to our other vendors; the quick replies to all of our questions via email made our lives easy during the prep. But the day of the wedding was perfect, in large part to these two men. Smiles all day and night, they kept us on schedule, and made everything look easy. We could not have asked for better DJs/MCs, but they were so much more than that. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day fun for our guests, and a pleasure for us as well.

Ok! When the groom is crowd surfing at a wedding, you know the party is on!!! That’s how good the guys from Exclusive Events are!! We can honestly say that our experience was perfect from the beginning to the end. The first time we sat down to discuss the event, we right away felt a great vibe from Yvan and Tommy. They were easy to talk to, very professional, organized and helpful. You could see that they knew what they were talking about! So we didn’t even shop, and that was it! Prior to the wedding, we had a few special requests, and we really appreciated their help to make everything go smoothly! During the reception, the “DJing” was great, both the young kids and the grandparents stood up to dance! As for the MC’s, Tommy and Fabrice juggled French, English and Italian perfectly to suit all guests of different cultures. And the games they planned included everyone and really added a personal touch to the wedding. Everybody told us how much fun they had, and part of it was because there was never a dull moment between the courses! An amazing evening overall! We definitely highly recommend Exclusive Events to anyone who is looking for a perfect event!

We could not have asked to hire better! Exclusive Events delivered so much more than expected. They helped us with everything, the proper timing, the order of things, the set-up, the amazing music and entertainment. The music they had throughout the entire time they were there was exactly the styles we had asked for and more! Also, the MC was great! He did not talk too much, nor were there any weird silences. Although we had a very different wedding, and not so many people who are dancers, there were still a bunch of people that danced throughout the night, even the older adults. Everyone kept complimenting the music, the entertainment they did and the Exclusive Events team. We truly enjoyed our day, and could not have done it without them! We would do it all over again if we could. We truly encourage people to hire them, they are outstanding at what they do, and they really make you feel at ease and reassured. You will have an amazing time whether it’s for a party, a wedding, or anything you can think of that requires a dj!

Truly an unforgettable night!! These guys have the natural ability to bring two cultures together and make them feel as one! Even a few days after the wedding, we are still getting compliments on the event as a whole and how much fun everyone had both Haitian and Filipino! Yvan, Tommy and Fabrice are keen on giving you a night that you will truly remember and one that your guests will also walk away feeling that they were part of something special! Yvan is an unbelievable DJ and can seemlessly please everyone in the crowd! Tommy and Fabrice are natural at keeping the flow, lighheartedness, joy and ease of the evening while flawlessly interchanging between English and French. When the wedding next door crashes your wedding, it’s obvious that something special is happening and people are havng fun! We can’t thank you enough for such a special evening! Until the next event!

Three words: WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exclusive Events is definitely a name to remember!!! From first sitting down with them to the night of our wedding, they made us feel comfortable, and were able to make our special day memorable!! They are real professionals, dynamic, original, and all and all, two really down-to-earth guys. They made the evening memorable not only for us, but for all the guests as well. It would be very very hard for us to imagine our wedding without Exclusive Events being our MC and DJ. We feel like doing it all over again because we didn’t want the night to end! Anyone who is fortunate enough to have Yvan and Tommy for an evening won’t be disappointed at all!!! That’s a GUARANTEE! By the way, our 200 guests outlasted the 400 guests’ party next door as a result of our DJ and MC never letting the party die down!! Unbelievable!!
We thank you guys very much from the bottom of our hearts and we would recommend you in a heartbeat!!!! Hope to see you again in the near future!!!

I just wanted to personally tell you that I thought you guys were amazing! Since receiving my degree in event planning long ago, I’ve always wanted to open my own company but never had the guts to do it. The experience of planning this wedding has made me realize that I could and I should do it. With that being said, I want you to know that if I do, I will recommend Exclusive Events to all my clients because I will want to make sure my clients are well taken care of. I knew I could trust you guys the whole time and that everything would be perfect. You guys are a good team who know what they are doing and you make people feel super comfortable very easily, which is also very important.
They say that good music and good food are essential for a good wedding. With the help of Exclusive Events and Le Mont Blanc, my sister had both! Everybody in the hall was saying the music was amazing!
Thank you again for the amazing night! I hope to see you in the future!

Exclusive Events is a guarantee for an amazing time!!! Not only were they incredibly professional from the very start (they practically organized the whole wedding reception evening with fun games, and provided the perfect structure to the night), but they were fun, easy-going and overall charming partners in crime for the best night of our lives! The MCing was engaging but not overwhelming, and the music was perfectly suited to the crowd, even though we only provided them with a few ideas of what we were looking for. The lighting created a welcoming atmosphere that went perfectly with the rest of the decor. Yvan and Tommy are the most dynamic duo you will ever find, and they delivered far beyond our expectations. Our wedding would not have been nearly as perfect if it wasn’t for them. Worth every single penny!! THANK YOU!!!

Let’s start from the very beginning… When we first met Yvan and Tommy at a nearby Tim Hortons, we knew within the first 5 mins that we found our guys. They were so positive and funny, we were immediately drawn to them. They asked us a few questions to get to know us and they knew exactly what we wanted and what was important to us. We honestly didn’t even look elsewhere. They were the first we met and the last. We can tell you now that we don’t regret our choice, they definitely delivered the goods. They took care of all the details and order of the night. They weren’t just DJ’s or MC’s, they were EVERYTHING, from playing the traditional jewish horra to traditional french canadian music to arabic… and more. Exclusive events had 250 people on our dance floor partying away till 3am… Our wedding night was memorable and a big success thanks to them. People are still talking about the great time they had. Thank you so much for being so awesome! If anyone asks for a recommendation, we can assure you that the first name that will come out of our mouths will be EXCLUSIVE EVENTS- They’re the best!

I was just watching our wedding video and it brought back amazing memories both from the ceremony and the party afterwards. We had over 100 guests ranging from 10 to 90 years old and Exclusive Events rocked the place! The choice of music, animation, and charisma of these guys gave us a night to remember. We got a lot of comments from our guests saying things like “you know the party was awesome when you need a massage afterwards because you danced all night!” We will celebrate our 4th anniversary this coming winter and our family still compare other weddings to ours.
I could not imagine trowing any kind of event requiring animation/DJ and not hiring them again. If you ever consider requiring their services I would say do not hesitate and give them the opportunity to make your day as magical as it can be.

Not only did they follow up and assist us leading up to the big day but they went above and beyond what we expected. We had an amazing evening and a big thank you to the team at Exclusive Events for being a very special part of it.

Exclusive Events are the third DJs we’ve worked with and they are by far the best we’ve experienced. I would recommend them to anyone because they really know how to read the audience and select music that gets everyone dancing. Their bilingual MCs have a great sense of humor and provide endless entertainment with the games they play with the crowd. Last but not least, with Tommy and Yvan, you can enjoy peace of mind because they have absolutely everything under control! Thanks again for everything.

From the get-go, when we met Exclusive Events at the salon Marions-Nous, we had a great feeling about Tommy and Yvan. Needless to say, they did not disappoint. From our initial consultation at a Tim Hortons near our place, to wrapping up of the final plans, the Team at Exclusive Events were consummate professionals. Their attention to detail is astounding. They easily quoted things we had talked about in our first meeting at our wedding (which was 1 year after our first meeting). Moreover, they made sure to play the specific songs we asked, as well as not play the artists we did not want. 🙂
Once the party started, it was off the hook! On the MC side, Tommy and Fabrice kept the flow going in an organic way. We never once had to worry about timing since they were so on the ball that we just enjoyed ourselves and watched everything unfold perfectly. On the music side, Yvan rocked it! He incorporated Chinese, Creole, Irish and Italian music throughout the night and kept the dance floor alive until the wee hours of the morning. Also, the team had us do a game called “which side parties harder” that remained the talk of our families for weeks after the wedding. Suffice to say, Cheryl’s side has the record for collectively backing the most ass up at a time! Hahaha.
We would highly recommend Exclusive Events to any and all who want a very well organized party that will keep everyone entertained! We had an amazing time at our wedding and we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and MC!!!!
Thank you so much for all your dedication and time to our wedding!! We’re so happy to have met you 🙂

Webster’s dictionary describes an exclusive event as an event that is like no other, one that is meant to make the party goers feel like they are at an event that they otherwise might not get to experience.
This explains why Yvan and Tommy chose to name their company Exclusive Events, and boy did they ever live up to their name!! We could not be more grateful for the amazing job they did in making our Wedding one to remember for all who attended. Their casual yet organized approach from the moment we met them left us with zero doubt that they would rock the house. At the end of the night, I said that had I known how great they would have been, I would of had no problem paying double, and I truly meant it ( although thankful they didn’t hold me to it). Gentleman, all I have to say is, continue doing what you do because as all the other testimonials say you guys are truly amazing and anyone who chooses to work with you will be as indebted to you as Kelly and I are for making our wedding as amazing as it was.
To all those who are thinking of choosing Exclusive Events, just say yes, they never disappoint. From the words of my 86 year old grandmother , “I couldn’t name one of the songs they played, but left the wedding telling everyone that I wanted to get married again just to have Yvan and Tommy rock the house again.”

Music is the soundtrack to our lives. That being said, when you choose a dj for an important event such as your wedding, you are gambling that they do all that you hope for, like setting the mood and creating the pulse to your event. You are not only trusting that they do a great job and make all age groups have a great time, but also that the proper tone is set for the event.
Yvan and Tommy did just that and much more. They put us at ease from day one. From detailing each step of the nights events to playing the perfect music selections throughout the night. Thanks to them, our wedding has gone down as one of the greatest parties of the year. We could not have chosen better. In fact, we got so many compliments on them that we are anxious to have another party and ask for their help once again.
Yvan and Tommy thank you so very much for everything. You guys are amazing.

I remember when we had first met, Emanuel and I threw so many details at you: trying to blend our Jamaican and Jewish cultures, exciting entrances, personalized introductions, mellow reggae vibes during supper, dance hits to party to, the games, and even my last minute changes, but you both were on point. It was the wedding of our dreams and you two were the integral part. Thank you for making our day so special!
Emanuel: Guys, let me start off by saying that you were the best DJ’s I’ve ever witnessed at all of the events I’ve been to in my life. You managed to get everyone to dance and laugh all night long. Your professionalism and energy were top notch. Thank you for providing such awesome entertainment on the most special day of our lives.

Wow! Just wow! But wow is just not enough to describe how amazing Exclusive Events is! Exclusive Events is the cherry to every wedding. Like any event, finding a DJ/MC can be quite challenging because it’s the DJ/MC that makes the event a success! But let us tell you, Yvan & Tommy were able to deliver and get our families dancing to the early morning!!! Crazy! We are so happy that we chose Exclusive Events for our wedding. From the first day we met, we clicked. Yvan & Tommy are two great and genuine people. They are very professional. They respond so quickly to their e-mails, which made our wedding planning less stressful. After that first meeting, we had just kept in contact with them via e-mail. Then, 4 months later, we bumped into them at the Marions-Nous exhibition and they instantly remembered us from a mile away without any introduction. It shows that they really care about us since that first meeting and that they weren’t trying to sell. I, the bride, had mentioned during the planning stages that I didn’t want our wedding to happen as I loved planning with Exclusive Events so much and didn’t want it to end! 🙂 All in all, we would definitely recommend Exclusive Events to anyone because they will get the crowd pumping. We wish all the best to Exclusive Events and hopefully we will see you guys soon at one of our friends or family’s wedding.

Hiring Exclusive Events to DJ & MC our wedding was the easiest decision we made when planning the big day! From the moment we met Yvan & Tommy we knew that we had found something special. These guys are sincere and genuine in their love of what they do. Before the wedding they spent a lot of time helping us plan out our day, doing and re-doing the schedule, which they conveniently had a copy of at our very first meeting, and helping get the music exactly right. The day of the wedding we were so lucky to be able to put our trust in them and they took care of everything flawlessly. They made the night run smoothly even with last minute changes and new information being thrown at them. They made our night personal, special and gave us an unforgettable party! There are no words to truly express how great of a team they are and how thankful we are that we found them!

Like for many couples, finding a DJ as well as an MC can be a challenge. We were lucky to be referred to Exclusive Events from our good friend Erica who had witnessed them in action. I had seen them in action in the past as well, but due to the fact that I enjoyed myself too much at those previous events, I tend to not remember details. We met many DJs before meeting Yvan and Tommy and we immediately knew that they were the perfect fit for our wedding.
As many people know, the first impression is the most important impression. The ease they put us through our meeting at Tim Hortons when we first met as well as the extensive details in the plan for the evening and the impeccable execution of plans. They had it all! The meeting blew us away and not a second later did we book them as our DJ. Not only did the meeting blow us away, we decided to let them decide the song selections for the whole evening, obviously keeping in mind the genre of songs we enjoy and dislike.
As the evening came closer and the more we were stressed about certain things, the more they helped us keep our composure. The duo from Exclusive Events not only suggested great songs for our wedding but executed the evening extremely well. We had many praises from relatives, friends and more. They were all impressed with their professionalism. Kudos to them.

Tommy and Yvan were the most accomodating, helpful and organized group we came across in our search for entertainment. The success of our reception is due to their passion for what they do. Our guests were entertained from the start to the very end of the night. Tommy’s delivery in his opening speech was excellent and set the mood for the rest of the evening: This was going to be a fun night! We especially liked how they were able to get both sides of our friends and families to feel like one united group with the “WHO’S SIDE PARTIES THE HARDEST”. The games were entertaining and music selection was appropriate for the different times of the evening. They went above and beyond with the lighting and even put our initials in the lights. Our friends and family were talking about how they were an amazing entertainment company even one week after the wedding! Excellent job guys! Thank you for helping us make this day a success!

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Exclusive Events! From the moment Tommy and Yvan walked into our home for our first meeting, we knew that their dedication to making our day unforgettable was their priority. From Tommy’s great sense of humour to Yvan’s unbelievable organizational skills, we knew that they were a perfect fit for us. They were very flexible, efficient and accommodating. Despite having won 50% off with another DJ, we decided to stick with Exclusive Events and we can honestly say that we did not regret it! Tommy, Yvan and Fabrice are all about listening to their clients and going above and beyond to make the entertainment suit the couple. All of our guests commented on how great the music was and how they had not danced that much in years! Even the staff at our venue were highly impressed by how well Tommy, Yvan and Fabrice worked with them to make the evening run smoothly. We highly recommend them and we are positive that you will walk away from your event knowing that you made the right choice with Exclusive Events!
Thank you again! xxx

I didn’t get a chance to say so before I left for the evening Saturday night (Alison & Gabriel’s wedding) but I wanted to mention that you guys rocked the evening. I had a blast both as a guest and as the photographer. You made my job easy and fun!

From the first interaction with Yvan & Tommy, they were professional, courteous, funny, & genuinely interested in making us happy. And on our wedding day, they delivered above & beyond what we had hoped for. The music for the ceremony was perfectly timed, and for the reception, they played the requests our guests had asked for in their RSVPs, our requests, and kept the pace going throughout the night. Our guests really enjoyed themselves & had wonderful compliments for Yvan & Tommy. Thank you for making our night everything we wanted it to be. Merci! 😀

We first met Yvan and Tommy at Marions-Nous. We were immediately drawn in by their non-aggressiveness at this crazy event. They were not trying to “sell” us. They simply gave us some information about themselves. This definitely stuck with us when it came time to pick a DJ.
After meeting with several DJ’s we decided to go with EE for 2 reasons; the most significant was what Yvan had told us when we met with them, “if you choose us, you will not have to think about the night entertainment again.” He backed this up with an excel spreadsheet of the potential schedule of the event and included all the details that we had discussed. He sent it to us that same night! We figured that anyone who was that organized was someone that we wanted to work with. Secondly, EE’s relaxed nature was a huge selling point. They wanted to work with us and make sure that we had the wedding we always dreamed of.
We communicated a lot with Yvan and Tommy on the flow of events for the night, song choices and everything else that goes along with planning your wedding reception. They answered our emails promptly, met with us at our venue and always were happy to do it!
Now, for the night of…They worked with my brother who was the MC to make sure that everything was in sync. Once the official party started they were amazing! Everyone, young and old, were up dancing and having a great time. We had tons of people come up to us to tell us how amazing the DJ’s were and they were definitely a highlight of the night!! People were so impressed with the music and are still mentioning it when we talk about our wedding. If I had to do it all over again, no hesitation, we would choose Exclusive Events again.

Our experience with Exclusive Events started off on an excellent note, they met us at a cafe to go over details, and I mean details, of our event. (What type of theme, type of event, music style, music must haves and music must not haves) They arrived to our wedding with hours to spare to make sure that everything was set up just right. We then met with them to go over last minute details. They did everything just the way we wanted it. They listen to every details we asked for, and somehow knew even those we didn’t ask for. They interacted well with all of our guests. We can’t thank them enough for making our wedding night last until much longer than expected, they kept the crowd going how I am still not sure. (Our feet still hurt from all the dancing). Thanks again Exclusive Events the night wouldn’t have been the same without them!!!
Event: SITA Year End Party
Date: December 13, 2012
Location: Omni Hotel, Montreal
For the first time in over 10 years, SITA Montreal had one party. In the past years, each department had their own small event, however, this year we managed to have over 120 of our staff under one roof.
Our goal was simple, throw the best party possible and have our staff keep talking until next year’s event. It worked! The team from Exclusive Events played a big role in the overall success of our event. The music and ambiance was so good, the party in the adjoining room invaded ours. The event in the next room had 350 people with a full band, yet, they decided to join us because of the atmosphere and the fantastic music being played by EE.
In the days following our party, I’ve had someone comment to me several times a day how good the party was and how great the music was.

We loved working with Yvan & Tommy. From our first meeting they made it clear that the focus was about contributing to a memorable wedding day, by tailoring the evening’s entertainment to our styles and tastes. They always had great ideas and suggestions and were open to what we proposed. We most appreciated their level of engagement, creativity and trustworthiness. The end result was an amazing reception! They created an elegant, intimate atmosphere and made sure everyone enjoyed themselves.

Yvan and Tommy were a pleasure to work with from the very beginning! Yvan had me at “Excel Sheet”. His organization and attention to detail really showed throughout the night, with songs that we requested as well as his ability to adapt to the crowd. Tommy got the party started and really set the tone for the entire night. They worked seamlessly together! I can honestly say that they helped me enjoy the night – I didn’t have to worry about timing, keeping everything on schedule, or dealing with unexpected surprises and requests. They handled everything professionally and without a hitch.
We had several meetings with Yvan and Tommy before the event…they wanted to get to know us, and it was obvious that they paid attention. The night felt truly like our own – with the music, lighting, mood, and activities. We would recommend these guys to anyone…and hope that our friends listen to us, because we want to have a chance to party with them again!

Your talent is a gift and we were so honoured by your presences. Every station (cocktail, ceremony, diner, dance) had its own unique and sublime ambiance. The atmosphere was perfectly balanced because of your special touch! You nailed it! Please thank Sugar Sammy for referring you to me (what a discovery!) Now we are thinking of making another party just to be able to hear and dance to our favourite DJ!
Thanks love, Natacha & J-M.

When I was looking for a DJ for my wedding reception, Yvan and Tommy were immediately recommended. Their level of professionalism and organization cannot be beat. They cheerfully worked with me to find a balance between the songs I wanted and the songs that would make sure our guests had a blast. The result? “Best wedding reception ever!” as shouted by my brother. Our families never stopped dancing and couldn’t compliment Yvan and Tommy enough. They were always available via email or phone and when it came down to the wedding day, I didn’t have to worry about a thing- these gentlemen had it handled. I hope they had as much fun as we did. It wasn’t just a wedding reception, it was a PARTY!
