"EK exceeded every expectation I had. The day was perfect. There's not one thing I would've changed. Todd, Johnny, Jamie and I had the best day of our lives. I can't tell you how many people commented on how awesome they thought you and your crew were. I so appreciate all your help in the planning process and putting up with all my nagging and annoying questions."

-- Marci Stockton, New Jersey

"Thank you for everything. Truly outstanding from all the dancers to the two giant screens!! You rocked the house and made the party. Erica loved every minute. Your attention to detail, presentation, production and music were perfect. I could not have asked for more. I will certainly suggest all my friends and family use EK Productions. Remember, we have another one for A.J. in 4 years. Amazing job!!!!

-- Marc Rovner

"Mikayla had an amazing time at her Bat Mitzvah and everyone is still taking about the party. Everything was perfect from the decor, to the logos, to the montage. I know it is unusual to use a different company for your second child's event, but I am beyond glad I did! From the minute I met you, I loved your personality. You were always happy and upbeat, and walked me through the entire process. I never felt for a second I couldn't get in touch with you. Everything was done with such professionalism. The logos and decor were fantastic, the music was outrageous, the dancers were great, and of course we just adored the MC! I will be using your company for every party I have moving forward. It was an absolute pleasure working with you."

-- Melissa Goodman-Meltser

"You made this party phenomenal! We loved Benny, the DJ and the dancers. Everyone seemed energetic, happy and enthusiastic. We loved the lighting, the draping and the centerpieces. Our Bat Mitzvah girl could not be happier! Thank you."

-- Carrie Diamond

"We honestly don’t where to begin to thank you for helping make Spencer’s Bar Mitzvah party a night we will never ever forget! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and getting to know you. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into our very special candle lighting ceremony. It was beyond perfection and set the tone for the rest of the night. The centerpieces were out of this world, the entrance video spoof was spot on and the montage and graphics were fabulous. Your crew was phenomenal – each and every one of them including your photo and game team. So many of our friends and family said how amazing our DJ/MC were; you had everyone on the dance floor which is exactly what we hoped for. We can go on and on but the truth is, you helped us make this night magical. We couldn’t stop smiling and dancing the whole time. You are truly one of a kind and we’re so grateful we found the right person to help us. Thank you again for everything!"

-- Lisa and Randy

"We cannot thank you enough for your amazing work at Morgan's Bat Mitzvah. From the day we hired you a year before the event, you were beyond accessible, emailing and texting me back at all hours of the night. Your professionalism was beyond expectation. You knew exactly what we needed at Camp Towanda. From the design of the floor plans and figuring out the power supply to ordering linens and coordinating the photo booth, you made it all happen. Morgan was very worried that the party would not be enough of a "dance party," but you and your staff had the crowd dancing the ENTIRE night! I don't think anyone wanted to stop to eat! Your dancers and DJ were amazingly talented and friendly without being intrusive. Our guests are still talking about the event! Spencer and I believed from the start that it is the entertainment that makes a great party and we were right! EK Productions blew us away! Amazing work and thank you again!"

-- Helene and Spencer Korn, Livingston, NJ

I can't thank Evan and EK Event Group enough for taking care of all the entertainment at my oldest son's Bar Mitzvah in 2019 and then my daughter's Bat Mitzvah in 2022. I frankly would not even consider anyone else especially after Evan helped us get through Covid with multiple cancellations and dates changes. The difference is Evan truly cares and wants to make your event a success. My wife who is from China and not so familiar with Bar/Bat Mitzvah's even commented how Evan made sure everyone had a great time. That's the good news for Evan. The other news is I recently had two more children and as I said there is no one else I will consider so Evan will be doing their Bar/Bar Mitzvah's as well. So while my friends joke that I won't be retiring anytime soon neither will Evan so he will be around for a while. Thank you so much Evan for making this Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration everything we hoped through some tough times.

-- Stuart Altman

From the first conversation with Evan I had about planning our event I felt reassured and knew I was in good hands. He helped every step of the way-no question too small and had endless patience. Seeing our creations in person come to life was a dream. On the night of the party Evan’s team was entirely focused on making sure we had an amazing party. Thank you Evan and team for giving us a night we will always cherish. It was truly a pleasure working with you.

-- Randi Schwartz

OMG!! We had the best party last night!!!! Your organization was amazing with all of the planning, the original logo design, the timeline, the montage, and working with you up to the day. But - your crew last night was absolutely amazing!!! The tech crew was fabulous, your dancers, Wale and Megan were awesome without being in your face annoying, and MC Michael - HIT IT OUT Of the PARK!!! I can't tell you how many people told us we had the best MC and DJ! The kids were so engaged and had such a blast!! This was the party our 15 year old has wanted for 2 years and he got it!! And our current bar mitzvah boy, who never wanted this type of party and thought he'd have an ok time, well he had the time of his life. We can't thank you enough!!! We will give your name out to everyone!! We highly, highly recommend working with you and your crew!!!!! We loved it all!!! Thank you for making it so incredibly special!

-- Sharon Brown & Marc Straussberg
