We simply cannot thank you enough for giving us amazing wedding entertainment. Just knowing you were in control of things took away all the worries I had. I know the situation wasn't always ideal but you handled everything wonderfully! You are so talented at what you do and we were so thankful to have you.

I must admit, that my husband and I were very wary of hiring a DJ for our wedding. We wanted something VERY low-key but with good energy and seriously contemplated just having a friend DJ or playing an iPod during our reception. We interviewed a few DJs in town. We had heard about Frederick and how great he is, but mainly heard of his high energy. We were a bit worried about someone with "high energy" thinking it would be too much for the type of wedding reception we wanted. What ultimately made us hire Frederick was his professionalism and how he actually listened to what we wanted. Other DJs had their own agendas and ways they wanted to run "the show."
We. Had. The. Best. Wedding.!!!!!!!! Frederick took care of our ceremony music, cocktail hour and our reception. He played the music we wanted and mixed up different genres in such a great way. We had the absolute BEST time at our wedding and could not have asked for anything better. We had a small wedding (45 or so people) and EVERYONE danced. The dance floor was never empty and the music suited everyone from our age group (late twenty to thirty- year olds) all the way up to my grandmother. Frederick did not create a "show" out of our wedding. He made a wonderful memory for us. Our guests raved about him and keep telling us how much fun they had.
We are so grateful we were able to have Frederick be part of our wedding. He added such fun to our wonderful night.

Thank you for the amazing work you did on the Raines-Webb wedding. First, the lighting design was incredible and complemented the overall design perfectly. The Cocoa Beach Country Club was dramatically transformed! Second, the entertainment was trademark "Sophisticated Gents". Your performance was interactive, involving the guests through the entire reception experience. The music selection perfectly suited the style of bride and groom as well as their guests. Your professionalism, organization and signature touches were all noticed and appreciated. Thank you again for your hard work and dedication!

I again wanted to tell you thank you so much for your hard work at our wedding. I am still getting compliments on how great of a job you did.
My room was beautiful, your up lighting looked amazing and you definitely know how to get the party started and keep it going.
You were so professional and I really appreciate all you did to take charge and let my bridal party and everyone know what to do when the time came for them to do certain things. Andy and I were so pleased with it all and again I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making it so memorable for us.
It went by SO fast that I can barely remember much of it but I do remember how amazing your company did at everything. I will keep you in mind for any future events!
I will definitely refer your name out to anyone and everyone that I know who is looking for any of the services you provide. It was a pleasure working with you.

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that the two DJs you had working the Kate/Tal wedding on Saturday at the Hilton were AMAZING. I was so impressed with their professionalism and attention to EVERY MINUTE detail of this event. They were not only full of personality and amazing entertainers, but I saw them serving the bride and groom drinks as well as other "beyond the scope" services as some DJs would see it. They made my job much easier and I look forward to working with them again. Thanks again for being awesome.

Dear Sophisticated Gents,
Your services were absolutely outstanding. DJ Harry was great and Virginia was a true gift in that she helped direct us in the wedding and throughout the reception. They were both outstanding and gave us a party we will cherish forever. We received many compliments from our guests on both of them and the services. Thanks again for making our day perfect! I would definitely recommend you! Well Done!
Bill and Cathy Reichert
Sophisticated Gents provided us fabulous service at our wedding! We were truly amazed when we entered our reception room.
We didn't expect it to be sooo beautiful!! Frederick was very professional, friendly and entertaining.
He catered to my husband and me the entire night. Anything we asked for he was right on top of it!
From the uplighting, to the logo on the wall, to the ice luge, to the music...it was worth every penny!
Kenneth and Taniqua Andrews
Thank you so much for making our daughter's wedding reception perfect. She was pleased with every detail. It was a pleasure working with you. We really appreciate your willingness to listen to every request and share your own suggestions. Throughout the course of the reception, we continually heard comments about the relaxing atmosphere and music.
You were a blessing to me and my daughter. We think you are the best! Thank you. We will recommend you to everyone.

Frederick the Entertainer,
I have known Frederick a long time and when my wife and I were planning our wedding, I knew Frederick was our guy. We knew what we wanted our reception to be like but just didn't know how to get it there. During our first meeting with Frederick he told us that he would handle everything and to just have fun, relax, and tend to the rest of the wedding plans. Well, Frederick did not let us down and was there every step of the way. No matter what curve balls we threw at him, he always seemed to knock them out of the park. He was on top of everything and even came up with suggestions we had not thought about. I did not truly realize how great of an investment we had made by hiring Sophisticated Gents until we arrived at the reception. Frederick had transformed a once bland ball room into an unbelievable masterpiece complete with ice sculptures, uplighting, and chiffon draping. He truly made the ball room more than I could have ever imagined possible.
Just before we walked into the reception Frederick once again was there to lead us step by step and once again told us not to worry and to have fun. Well we did exactly that. Looking back there was not one thing I wish he would have done differently. Frederick is a true professional who truly has a passion for what he does and it shows! Thank you Frederick, you made our wedding a night to remember.

Thank you so much for providing such wonderful entertainment at Marissa's Bat Mitzvah.
You and your team made it a very memorable evening. The dancers were a riot and Marissa really enjoyed them.
I enjoyed working with you and hope to do so again in the future.
The lights made the mood and decorations so amazing.
I really appreciate your hard work and your huge contributions that made our special day a success!
Sophisticated Gents Entertainment is by far the best entertainment company I have worked with.
The organization, headed by Mr. Frederick Smith, is professional and concerned about what their customers want.
Providing their DJ services for the last four years to Viera High School student events; Sophisticated Gents
has always asked about the type of music that should be played and followed through with the school's requests.
They provide a system worthy of any heavy duty company without the huge price tag.
Their prices and services are reasonable and I know that they will provide an unforgettable experience for all participants. They are one of the few DJ service companies that are in compliance with the State of Florida's Jessica Lunsford Act. It is a true pleasure working with Frederick and his staff. Anyone who chooses this company to provide their entertainment needs, will find as I have, that they will do what they say and give you peace of mind they will do it.
Viera High School
Thank you, once again, for hosting our school's Sock Hop Family Event.
The music was age appropriate for our elementary school students. There was a definite energy and vibe
in our school cafeteria and it was generated by you and the fun and excitement that you were providing for our students and parents.
Our event ran extremely smoothly under your entertainment leadership. You were on time, extremely flexible and had a smile and infectious energy that jump-started our event. You were a key player in making our school and community event successful. I would happily recommend you and your company to any other Brevard County School or other type of event. You and "Sophisticated Gents" are a FIRST CLASS, PROFESSIONALLY RUN, organization and Manatee Elementary School is so pleased to have had you as part of our event.

Dear Sophisticated Gents,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your services for our Prom.
Words can barely express just how thankful I am to you for making this night one that will last in the
students' memories for years to come! You were so cordial to all the students and absolutely played
each request they made if it was possible. The music was mixed nicely allowing an eclectic selection
to meet the desires of each student who were present that evening. All night I received compliments
on your sound system, lighting, and wonderful selections of music that you played throughout the night.
Your added special little touches to the night were phenomenal! I will definitely recommend you to any
school in the future!
You are passionate about your job and it shows. You're a fabulous entertainer and your kindness, dedication, and devotion means so much to our students and me.

Frederick has been providing the music and activities for our sixth grade end-of-the-year celebration for many years.
He involves the students in games, provides appropriate music and announces clean up and dismissal times.
He's energetic and inspires the students to participate and enjoy the games he organizes.
He also gets the sixth graders doing dances such as the chicken dance and electric slide.
An enjoyable time is in store for all.
Frederick is very organized and is ready to begin the music as soon as we are ready. The students stay actively involved because of his enthusiasm. We highly recommend him as the DJ for your school event.

To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is my personal recommendation for, "Frederick the Entertainer" and Sophisticated Gents Entertainment. We hired the company for a Holiday Party that combined many departments of our Children's Hospital. This was a large group and we worried that the room would be divided between the two major units. Frederick was our DJ that night and he exceeded our expectations!
Fredrick was extremely professional from the very beginning. He touched base prior to the event to understand the type of crowd it would be. He was on time and set up before we even got there to set up. Once the party started, Frederick facilitated the dinner buffet and helped everyone get through quickly and efficiently. Shortly afterwards, we did our presentations and raffle, then the dancing started. He has a special way of getting everyone out there and having a good time. He also successfully brought the room together and there did not seem to be the divide that we have had in years past. The most unlikely person, a retired surgeon, that is now the medical director of the hospital, was even out on the floor dancing!
I feel like a DJ can make or break a party and Sophisticated Gents truly helped us have a fantastic Holiday Party. He catered to our specific needs and delivered quality entertainment the whole night. Working in a Children's Hospital is a high stress job and it was really nice to get together and just have fun with our co-workers. Everyone had a great time! We would certainly use the company again and I would recommend Sophisticated Gents to anyone for all types of events in the future.

I just wanted to take a few moments to express our gratitude for the tremendous job you and your staff did at our recent Yacht Expo on Merritt Island.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping to make our Sales Rally a tremendous success. With your help and the King Center facilities, we were able to take this event to a new level, making it the best and most enjoyable rally we've had to date.
Our employees are still talking about it. My only problem was determining how I was going to get everyone to sit down and not dance all night.
You were very professional and made every effort to accommodate our strange requests. Again, thank you for your excellent work. We look forward to working with you for future events.
