Phenomenal - An Eventective User from Dallas

Dean is just the best!! He was so thorough throughout the wedding planning process and he had my trust on the very first phone call. (I wasn’t able to meet him as I was planning our wedding from a different state.) Dean followed up with me and I was so grateful for this as I was so wrapped up in other wedding planning tasks. Dean went through every detail of how he was going to DJ our wedding and he had ideas that I’ve never heard of or seen before (I’m a wedding coordinator in a big city so I’ve worked with a lot of DJs). Dean is the best not only because he’s been doing this for years, but because he is talented and you can tell that he loves DJing. Dean was not only accommodating to what I wanted for my wedding as far as details go, but he put his own spin on everything from our intro, to throwing the bouquet and garter, to our last dance. I am so thankful that he did this because it made our celebration more fun. He made our wedding day so memorable, and he made us feel even more special. Dean really put thought and care into making me feel like not only a bride, but like a princess. My guests are still talking about how awesome Dean was and the music he played. He interacted with our guests and that made everyone excited! You might not know what you missed if you don’t book Dean for your event, but I can guarantee that your wedding or event will not be anywhere close to what Dean can make it. I recommend Dean a million times over and we are so lucky that he was available to DJ our wedding.

Excellent DJ! - An Eventective User from Alma

We've worked with Rusch Entertainment for the past three years in a row to hire a DJ for Prom. Everyone ends up having a good time, adults and students alike!

Best DJ - An Eventective User from Flushing

They truly helped to make our wedding 2/23/19 the best day ever! Whenever I called the office with questions Dean or Casey were always helpful, kind, and patient with me. DJ Joe Estrada was so fun. He called the week before to go over details. He took the time to make sure i didn't miss anything and was flexible when i wanted to change the order of announcements. Guests liked how he dismissed tables by playing a theme song trivia game. There was a great mix of music, with enough upbeat popular songs and slower love songs to keep people on the dance floor. Wonderful Master of Ceremonies! He played the perfect soundtrack for the perfect day! We even heard one of our favorite "City and Colour" songs at the end of the night!

Best Band/DJ combo! - An Eventective User from Boston, MA

My Husband and I had the absolute time of our life at our wedding ceremony and reception. In planning our wedding reception we wanted a versatile live band accompanied by a dj who can produce top 40 hits. Rusch entertainment exceeded our expectations. With CEYX Band and DJ Dean the dance floor was packed all night long. On top of that at about 10pm my cousin, who is an awesome drummer, got behind the drums and rocked the house with CEXY Band. It was a tremendous night. I highly recommend RUSCH entertainment, they will exceed your expectations.

Amazing DJ experience for our wedding - An Eventective User from Traverse city, MI

My husband and I got married in Traverse City June 2018! Rusch Entertainment sent us DJ Dan! Literally the best decision made. Dan was professional, attentive, and flexible! Our friends and family never left the dance floor all night! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing wedding DJ!!! - An Eventective User from Petoskey

Fellow brides and grooms, if you're looking for an outstanding DJ look no further!! DJ Casey from Rusch Entertainment is THE BEST! On a professional level he exceeds all expectations. He shows up on time, his set up is GORGEOUS, and he plays the perfect music! Kyle wanted a band from the very beginning but after our wedding he was SO pleased with Casey. He danced more than a handful of times and Kyle DOES NOT dance, EVER!! I have also worked weddings for almost a decade and can say with confidence Casey is one of the best DJ's I have ever seen!! We had so many people dancing!! Not only is he professional but he is a genuine human being. He even got me a glass of water during our cocktail hour. Casey also came up with a whole new style of a "grand entrance" so that Kyle and I could enjoy cocktail hour with our guests. Everyone loved it and everyone loved Casey!! We will never be able to say thank you enough for all you did for us!! We hope we were HALF as good to you as you were to us!! - Kristie and Kyle Sliva, November 3rd 2018, Castle Farms *I forgot to mention this in a different review but Casey also saved us with their photobooth 2 days before the wedding when our other one cancelled! SUBURB service!!

Great DJ for our childrens event - An Eventective User from Highland, MI

DJ Aaron is amazing, you won't be dissapointed with him at all. He will keep your crowd engaged and dancing the entire time.

Perfect Experience! - An Eventective User from Dewitt

We had Casey for our May 2017 wedding at Castle Farms. He did an amazing job! He really listened to what we had to say and noted what kind of music would fit us and what kind of wedding we would want. He showed up plenty early to the wedding with a very impressive set up. Everyone danced ALL NIGHT to our music and we had several comments about how he kept the party flowing. We couldn't have asked for better! We also went to a wedding in October of 2017 and Dean happen to be the D.J. We were equally impressed with this wedding and how he kept everyone happy, entertained and dancing! Very impressive company, When we were first interested in this company, Dean talked to us IN COMPLETE DEPTH about his company, his pride in this company and everything they could provide for us. We basically booked because we were at first chat, sold because of his passion for what he does!

Wedding - An Eventective User from Cincinnati

DJ Kim did an amazing job at our Wedding in Tawas! The ceremony was beautiful and his timing was perfect! He brought everyone together at the reception for dancing, sing along, joy and laughter! I didn't even tell him which version of "Waltz Across Texas" I wanted and he nailed it with Ernest Tubb! My grandparents married 65 years won the longest married couple dance! During dinner the music was exactly what we imagined and he picked It! He made things easy and everything went smooth without any stress. His interactions with the crowd were witty and on point. He made us all feel like he was part of the family. Love you Kim! Dean also was a great person to talk to during planning. He put me at ease being a nervous bride! To sum it up, Dean and Kim are thoughtful, kind, supportive and so much fun! Thank You! With love, Joshua and Maegan Baldwin!

Aaron is the BEST! - An Eventective User from Flint, MI

We had Aaron Liversedge as our DJ yesterday for our wedding. Can we just say AWESOME?!! Aaron is who we would call the epitome of a wedding vendor. He was there much earlier than we expected him to show up and he did everything we requested without needing to be prompted. He was there to help us with anything we needed, even if it didn’t fall in his purview as a DJ. He went above and beyond what is expected and I had so many guests come up and compliment what a fantastic DJ he was. There will definitely be many things that go wrong at a wedding, like ours did. You want someone like Aaron to be there for you for those types of situations. He was ABSOLUTELY the best hire we made for our wedding. He was the most helpful vendor we had and if I were to ever get married again (although I have no plans to do so), I would hire Aaron again in a heartbeat. PICK HIM! You won’t be disappointed. By the way, his uplighting is also amazing. We honestly have nothing negative to say about Aaron at all. If we could give him more than 5 stars we absolutely would.

Awesome DJ Experience - An Eventective User from Ann Arbor, MI

Rusch entertainment pulled off a perfect evening. Dean was wonderful to work with for planning, and a last minute change for health reasons put Casey in charge of the festivities. Casey was excellent. He absolutely killed it! Everybody was dancing all night long and everything we wanted to happen happened. Couldn't recommend more.

Our Perfect Wedding - An Eventective User from Bay City, MI

I tell you what, I did not have one complaint out of any of my guests the entire night about Corey and Rusch Entertainment. Corey was always coming to me to tell me how things would happen before he did them. He also played songs that people actually liked. I am beyond thankful that I booked this company as he created many memories for me and my wife. Even my groomsman who does not dance at all was out on the dance floor. Thank you Corey! I would highly highly recommend this company if you want to have a night for you and all your guests to enjoy.

Great Dj - An Eventective User from Mt. Morris, MI

Very good Dj!! Corey listens to all of your wants and needs. I got nothing but compliments the whole night on the music. Didn't play one bad song. He set the tone for the reception and everything flowed together great. I wish I could get married again just to hear the music. Great job!!

Amazing experience - An Eventective User from Lake Orion mi

DJ Aaron was amazing!!! He went above and beyond making our wedding day very special!! I would highly recommend him and this company to do business with! Thank you, Rusch Entertainment!!

DJ Rich is the best! - An Eventective User from OMER, MI

DJ Rich from Rusch Entertainment is amazing! He always kept my guest dancing, minimum of 9-10 at a time. There were no issues with any of the songs or music that we chose. I had so many compliments on DJ Rich and how fun my wedding was. Out of all vendors and bookings that I needed to complete, working with Rusch Entertainment was the easiest to work with and I did not have to worry for a single second. I want to thank DJ Rich and Rusch Entertainment for making our day so special and allowing my husband and I to have a night that we will never forget.

so happy with our DJ!! - An Eventective User from dearborn MI

We only have excellent things to say about our business with Rusch Entertainment! The photo booth was such a hit and the photo book we got at the end is such a great memento. The DJ was AMAZING! Mark was so nice, professional, and talented. We got so many compliments on him and the music and he made the entire experience that much better. He played the perfect music during dinner and really knew how to keep the party going. Mark played our first dance song at the end and had everyone make a circle around us and it was my absolute favorite part of the evening. I could feel so much love from everyone and I'm so thankful that mark did that!!

Ceremony and Reception Dj and lighting - Joe E - An Eventective User from bay city mi

We were very pleased with Joe - he did a fantastic job with our wedding! In our whirlwind of crazy - he was our rock - keeping the party going, keeping everything (and us) on schedule and giving us the guidance and suggestions to keep our guests having a great time! He took the helm and we didn't have to worry about a thing and we could visit, dance and enjoy our evening and our guests. I had so many complements of him and the great job he was doing/did. He was very interactive with my guests and they loved him. He came in a stranger and left as part of the family! Don't even give it a second thought - just book him and don't look back - On your big day, you will be so very thankful you did!

The Perfect Day - An Eventective User from Columbia, SC

Corey Rusch did an amazing job at our wedding! He was extremely organized, flexible, and professional. He even came early to set up when we had a time change at our venue. Most importantly, Corey did a great job pacing the events at the reception without rushing through anything or having any lulls. A highlight of the evening was when he had all but two or three people up and dancing in a Congo line which smoothly transitioned into the chicken dance! I would definitely recommend Rusch Entertainment!

Rusch Entertainment: DJ Casey was awesome! - An Eventective User from Palatine, IL

My wife and I did our research when looking for a good DJ, and even with all that research, the initial stages were a bit stressful. Much of that stress was finally removed from the equation when a few of our friends referred Rusch Entertainment (and DJ Casey). Leading up to the wedding, the offices were very easy to talk to and they were extremely accommodating (DJ Casey drove from Saginaw to Grand Rapids because we requested him). Their pre-wedding form dotted every "i" and crossed every "t." Finally, the dance floor was rocking all night long. I think that's always a couple's biggest concern: will my guests be having a great time with the music. Ours did, and the night was unforgettable.

Great DJ and Lighting - An Eventective User from Michigan

We worked with DJ Mark, and he was really great. He was very reassuring and helpful when we had questions at the event, and he handled any concerns professionally and quickly. He did a great job playing certain songs at the appropriate time, and the dance floor was always packed! A common worry is that the music will be too loud, but we didn't have any problems. It was loud enough on the dance floor, but off the dance floor we were able to talk to family easily. Overall it was a really fun night, and I would highly recommended working with DJ Mark and Rusch Entertainment again.

This DJ made our wedding unforgettable! - An Eventective User from Ubly, MI

Our wedding day was genuinely the best day of our lives- and we have DJ Corey to thank for that! First, Corey drove out to the middle of the woods with all of his top-of-the-line equipment in order to provide our evening entertainment. We thought we might have trouble getting someone to commit to a non-traditional wedding setting, but he heard our story and agreed to help us out! The music planning process was a breeze. After filling out our preferences a month ahead of the event, Corey contacted me the week of the wedding just to go through everything one last time- easing the mind of a very anxious bride :-) The day of the wedding, Corey was a gem. In addition to showing up early to play music for our guests, he helped coordinate with the caterers to ensure that everything ran smoothly, kept us on time, and even did small (but largely appreciated!) things like offer to refill drinks for the head table. However, the best part of the night was when the dancing started. Our dance floor was absolutely packed- the ENTIRE night. At several points in the evening, my new husband and I sat back to observe the dance floor, and we were just glowing with happiness about how great of a time our guests were having. We have heard nothing but compliments regarding the entertainment, and remarks such as "I haven't seen a dance floor that packed, and packed through the whole night, in decades!". Corey does a great job fielding requests from guests, but also is gifted in his ability to read the crowd and play whatever songs will keep them having a great time! We are so grateful for Corey, and I will absolutely recommend him (or any member of the Rusch team) to any couple looking to make their wedding the best day of THIER lives.

Wonderful DJ Service! - An Eventective User from Howell

Casey was the DJ at our wedding at Castle Farms. He was AMAZING! Rusch Entertainment as a whole was great to work with, fast communication, and he worked flawlessly with us to make sure everything was perfect. Rusch Entertainment is on the "preferred provider" list at Castle Farms, so that is how I was connected with them. It is hard to pick a DJ when it is such an important element of a wedding, but I am so thankful I chose them and I am so happy we were given Casey as our DJ. Thanks Rusch for helping making our day perfect and keeping our dance floor alive! :)

Bride - An Eventective User from Chesaning,mi

Dean Rusch was extremely helpful with helping me find the perfect dj for my wedding of 400 people. Dean Rusch called me personally which to me was what assured me that this is the company to go through. Dean is passionate about his company and truly cares for his brides and only wants there day to be perfect. Our DJ Aaron went above and beyond at the event pouring drinks at the head table, excusing tables to eat, announcing the wedding party, and announcing songs. He kept the night flowing on time. Everything went perfectly he kept the crowd on the dance floor the whole night. My advice as a bride get DJ Aaron tell him your songs for your main dances and let him do the rest you will not be disappointed. He also calls you a few days prior to the big day and goes over everything so you are never left wondering and are relieved that they are so organized.

GREAT DJ - An Eventective User from Fenton, MI

Rusch Entertainment was very easy to work with and I am so glad for the referral! I had a small budget to work with for the DJ and they didn't mind that one bit! They are very easy to communicate with and they answer phone calls and emails promptly. Joe was a great DJ! The music had everyone dancing and he was even out there dancing with guests and teaching specific dances! It was great! He was very accommodating to our needs and had fun games throughout the night, which the guests really enjoyed! 100% satisfied and will recommend to everyone! Thank you again.

LeBlanc/Alfano Wedding - An Eventective User from Saginaw MI

Rusch Entertainment provided music for the ceremony and reception. They did an amazing job! Kept the dance floor moving all night! Very easy to work with, couldn't be happier!

Amazing DJ services - An Eventective User from Royal Oak, Michigan

DJ Aaron was absolutely amazing. We knew he was going to do great, but he completely knocked it out of the park! Everyone danced all night long. Sensational! We would recommend Rusch Entertainment services to anyone in a heartbeat!!! After the wedding, we received so many compliments about DJ Aaron. Not only was he a fantastic DJ, but a great host, greeting guests and welcoming them to the party. We had many elements planned for the night (belly dancers, live singing) and he handled it with ease. We booked him more than a year in advance. If you are thinking about booking a DJ, snag Aaron if he has an opening! Thanks, again, to Rusch for a fantastic night!

Perfect DJ-Michael from Rusch Entertainment - An Eventective User from SAGINAW, MI

Rusch Entertainment does it again! I want to thank Rusch Entertainment and our DJ Michael for making our wedding absolutely perfect! Our DJ did a fantastic job from the moment we signed a contract with Rusch through the wedding day! Michael met with us and called us to make sure he knew exactly what we wanted for our big day. On our wedding day, he was outstanding! I was so impressed by the job he did. Guests came up to my husband and I all night telling us how much they loved him! He really made our wedding fun and absolutely perfect! Thank you Rusch and Michael!!!

Amazing Job by Rusch Entertainment, Our DJ! - An Eventective User from Shelby Twp., MI

5 stars isn't enough. Casey from Rusch Entertainment was everything we could have asked for in a DJ for our wedding at Castle Farms. He mixed in all different genres of music and still was able to satisfy all of our requests. Every guest we've spoken to since the wedding has mentioned how good the DJ was. Every one of them. The dance floor was packed the whole time. We've recommended Rusch Entertainment to several people already. Thank you Casey and Rusch Entertainment for helping make our wedding a great day!

Perfect DJ Service - An Eventective User from BAY CITY, MI

If you want a great DJ, look no further than Rusch Entertainment! At my daughter's reception this past weekend, we had Scott Arnett from Rusch Entertainment. I can't say enough about the awesome job he did. Scott was very professional and "played to the guests". Everyone has commented on what a great job he did from introducing everyone to keeping the party going. Five stars from me!

Loved our DJ - An Eventective User from Midland, MI

Corey Rusch did a fantastic job DJing for our wedding. He was very easy and fun to work with. The dance floor was packed the entire night thanks to him!

Perfect wedding DJ/Band - An Eventective User from Clarkston, MI

We recommended Rusch for our son's wedding. They were great. They are talented and so much fun. We would use them again.

PERFECT & PROFESSIONAL DJ - An Eventective User from Commerce Twp., Michigan

Carla Amato and Rusch Entertainment are the best. Very professional, friendly. 2 years of searching for a local DJ who would play old Italian songs & they were the perfect fit. Recommend them highly -

Came through in a crunch - An Eventective User from Freeland, MI

Our daughter's friend was supposed to DJ her wedding. He did not respond to calls in the week before the wedding. My first and only thought was Rusch Productions - but it was so late I wasn't sure if they had anyone available. Lo and behold THEY ACTUALLY PLAN FOR OUR CRISIS! Dean keeps a couple folks on call just for last minute no shows. We all had a ball, the DJ was professional (not second rate at all just because he was on call.) He kept the music clean as we requested and was a great addition to the party. Not overbearing but kept everyone dancing the whole night.


Hello! I am a Banquet Manager and Event Coordinator for a Golf Club in Michigan. Rusch Entertainment has worked many events at the club and I knew that my husband and I HAD to have them for our wedding this past October (2014). Rusch Entertainment made the booking process and organizing so easy with their online format for music selection and it helped us to not forget anything such as bouquet toss, garter toss, etc. DJ Keith Ortiz was AMAZING! Absolutely the best of the best. I have seen many DJs and worked with many in my line of work and was thrilled with Keith, and Dean Rusch for his suggestion to hire Keith. We also booked our photobooth through Rusch Entertainment. Another two thumbs up! Upon booking, I had NO idea that they create an entire photo album with the pictures taken throughout the night. Although I had seen this at weddings and other events that I had coordinated at the golf club, I had no idea how much effort they would put into making our night so perfect! There is absolutely no better Entertainment Agency to suggest than Rusch and I will always suggest this to every bride, mother and event host/hostess that walks in my office requesting DJs and other entertainment. They truly go above and beyond for their guests and make each event feel like its the most important. I highly recommend to look no further and give Dean and the Rusch Entertainment staff a call because they truly are the best of the best! Thank you so much to Keith, Dean and all the Rusch Entertainment staff for making our night everything we imagined it to be and more! One Happy Newlywed, Tarah

Keeping it in the Family - An Eventective User from Grand Blanc, MI

My wife and I were married on September 7, 2013 at Horizons Conference Center in Saginaw. Aaron Liversedge was our DJ (and an unofficial wedding planning consultant, too!). We asked for him by name based on weddings my wife attended where he was the DJ. He met with us in advance and kept in touch up until the wedding as we planned the day's itinerary. He would help us decide what is usual practice and also what some ways to put a unique spin on things would be. He was completely professional throughout the entire day, from wedding to reception. He kept us on a schedule, to the minute, but used gentle reminders of what was coming up next. The only time the dance floor was empty was during dinner, it was packed from the beginning of the night all the way to the end. Amazing! We are so happy that we had the pleasure of him DJing our wedding and have referred my sister to Aaron for her wedding next September. My parents are happy to have Aaron for the second time.

Best DJ - An Eventective User from SAGINAW, MI

We used Rusch Entertainment for our wedding and had DAZ Entertainment. We called a few other places to get a price on the service and found with Rusch we were getting the best talent for our money! Dave did a fantastic job at our reception! He read the crowd exceptionally well and kept the party going! He was very professional! We got so many compliments on how well he did! I would definitely recommend him to anyone out there looking for a DJ!

Best DJ Ever!!! - An Eventective User from Madison Heights, MI

My husband and I could not have chosen a better DJ and company to play at our wedding. From the time we met our DJ til the last minute of our reception we had a blast. We chose every genre and generation of music to cater to not only us young ones but to every guest that joined in on our celebration. Everyone had a great time and they were all on the dance floor, even I spent my whole wedding reception dancing the night away. I had so much fun that my reception felt like it was over in a blink of an eye. I am more than happy that we went with this company! Thank you again Dean and Garrett for making my special day one to remember for the rest of our lives :)

Great DJ - An Eventective User from Macomb, MI

Casey was our DJ and he did a great job all night. The lighting he added really made the room pop and look like a party. He did a good job of mixing the music in and out to keep the dance floor rocking all night. We had a blast and would definitely recommend him for your wedding reception.

Excellent Entertainment!!! - An Eventective User from Saginaw, MI

Couldn't be happier!! We hired Corey to DJ our wedding reception and it was definitely a great choice. He even gave suggestions at the beginning of the planning process for various venues for our wedding ceremony!! He met me at the door as we arrived to the reception to touch base. Corey also checked with me throughout the night to make sure everything was going how I wanted it to. Our guests were on the dance floor all night and we heard nothing but great things about the music. Corey worked all of our requests in throughout the night and had many requests from our guests that he played as well!!
