Our Mission. Our Story.

Our mission is to always convey a passion for our work to our clients and to consistently deliver the best possible experience. We achieve that by providing a timely, responsive service with integrity, simplicity and the utmost professionalism.

Our start in the entertainment business began some 30 years ago as a side business. In 2002 we created Eclipse and went full time with our dream. This business is built on a foundation of hard work and unending passion for our craft. We continually update our equipment and raise the bar on what is possible. This is what gives us the edge against our competitors. We have an understanding that your event is uniquely yours and that alone is what has propelled us to being one of the most awarded and recommended event entertainment and production companies in the tri-state area.

A wise man once said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” So far, we have yet to go to work.

Sincerely,

Eclipse Events
Michael Spinnato – Owner & President
Anthony Battista – Director of Operations
Chris Ponce – Corporate Events Manager

Yes

We understand that no two events are ever alike. Our style is determined by that of our client. We can be active and motivate your crowd or be more traditional and reserved. We will work with you to determine the best fit for your day.

We never limit the guests from requesting music. The client normally gives us an idea of what they like and dislike. As for the guests, we will take requests and if they fit into what the client is going for, then we will play them. If they are requesting songs that are not in the same realm of what the client wants then we use our best judgement to see if it can fit in.

Formal black suit with matching ties. Some MC’s will also wear a black vest.

Not at all, we will gather any required music that the client requests. Unless the songs are extremely rare and difficult to locate but we would inform the couple of that weeks in advance. This normally only takes place with foreign selections.

We have 16 staff members currently. They are a mixture of DJ’s, MC’s, Lighting & Video Technicians. We are capable of performing at four events in any given time-slot.

2 hours

We have all our clients communicate with the MC who is the lead on the job before ever signing a contract. We feel it’s important to connect with them on a personal level rather than just a business level.

We have supplied entertainment for many ethnically diverse couples. We work hand and hand with the bride and groom to ensure that their culture is represented adequately on their day.

Yes. In the form we provide to everyone, there is a section involving music and there is a DO and DO NOT playlists area for them to complete.

Yes, and in addition, there is also backup equipment on-site in the event of a failure.

We are a full service entertainment company. As an add-on, We offer a full line of event lighting including dance-floor lighting as well as LED uplighting. In additon to DJ’s & MC’s, we provide Video, Live Music, Band/DJ Combos, Photo Booths and a number of other options.

This is normally based on the amount of equipment that is being supplied. The average amount of time is 60 to 90 minutes before the start of the event. We always have music playing 30 minutes before the start time to ensure that guests do not walk in to a room that sounds empty. We are self contained and do not need an additional table.

Not typically, but this is also determined by the amount of services are booked.

We do not have any signs or banners. We feel that the affair should be about the client and not about us spreading our name. If a guest is pleased with our services they will ask for our information.

We do Emcee the reception. It is important that the Emcee speak clearly when any formailities are about to take place. Events run much smoother when there is the presence of an Emcee. We make sure to speak with the client in detail before the reception to see how involved they’d like this person to be throughout the course of the event.

This is a tricky question to be honest. Being motivational depends on the type of party and the clients requests about the MC. We never like to be cheesy so there will not be any “over the top” antics, but we might try and slow things down and invite up all the couples to ease into another dance set.

Meals are never required but always appreciated.

Yes, we would have a playlist arranged in advance during this time.

We always have at least one staff member on call in case of any emergencies. Thankfully we have never had to exercise that option.

Each MC/DJ team is only on one event per day.

Our only travel charge would be for events that take place more than 90 minutes of driving time from our office in Bernardsville, NJ. The price varies depepnding on the package booked.

Yes. There is a 25% deposit due upon signing of the contract.

Production

Our head of production, Chris Ponce (chrisp@eclipseinfo.com), does schedule site visits to meet with corporate clients at their venue. This helps create a floor plan and a better understanding of the layout for the event.

We have the ability to handle everything for your corporate event. From audio setups, lighting, decor, video production, stages, drapery, and whatever else you’d require. Each corporate event is very unique and we pride ourselves on never saying no. We will make it happen!

We require 50% deposit to secure the date and the balance, at the latest, at the event. We will allow a 30 day net if needed.

Our style is non-obtrusive to say the least. We feel our job is be in the background and not hassle you with requests. We do not hand out mics for guests to speak, nor do we own those large lights that make filming seem like you are digging for clothes in the back of the closet.

This all depends on the package you choose but must production time takes up to 16 weeks. In some packages you can receive your 4 minute wedding trailer within two weeks!
