Eclipse Entertainers’ recipe for success is simple: Outstanding customer service, cutting-edge technology, years of experience, and exceptional talent. And all of this at the most reasonable prices in the Philadelphia area! Their DJs are the real deal—with top-notch equipment and a passion for music. They don’t just fade from song to song, but really mix in beats, mash the music together, and adapt the playlist to accommodate any crowd.
Founder John Alexander explains, “Ever since Eclipse Entertainers™ was founded, we’ve scouted the most talented DJs in the Tri-State area. Our DJs have exciting personalities and engage the crowd with just the right music selections, at the right time, and at the right volume. Because all of our DJs have years of musical experience, they have an ability to ‘read the dance floor’ and morph your event into the perfect shape for the maximum magical experience. It’s not the machine, it’s the operator.”

“Even though John has clearly done 100s of weddings, he made us feel like we were his only customers. It felt like I wasn’t dealing with a vendor, but with a good friend who was DJ’ing my wedding. He helped us ‘ball out on a budget’ and I honestly couldn’t imagine how the party would have turned out without him.”
“We had very complex music needs in that we had a huge bridal party introduction that started with separate songs for each couple as they were announced, and even allowed them time to dance. We had several surprise flash mob dances. We also had a nontraditional garter toss, several parent dances, an anniversary dance, and a New Year’s Eve send-off. Each of these required vastly different music from rap, to pop, to Disney, to slow songs, etc. Johnny never missed a beat and always kept everyone out on the dance floor having a great time!”
“We have received so many compliments on how fun our wedding was and we credit that to the amazing club-like atmosphere Eclipse DJ Entertainers created.”
“The best part was that John just let the music play and didn’t try to become the main attraction like many DJs try to do.”
“So many people are still talking about how much fun they had! We had almost all the guests on the dance floor at all times!”
“John is always so professional yet so upbeat and fun. He always addressed any concerns we had in a timely manner. He was truly a pleasure to work with!”
“I (along with my guests) were overly impressed with the MC services.”
“In terms of budget I honestly feel like we ripped him off. All the prices were more than reasonable and John never tried to upsell us or try to get us to buy stuff just so he can make an extra buck. John was great!”
“The music and MC services were unbelievable, the lighting was exactly how we imagined it and the photo booth had some great props!”
“I can’t think of anything they can do to improve. I loved everything and I would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone!”

Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
What 3 words best describe your work?Passion. Talent. Precision.
Tell us about your company name.The idea was to "Eclipse" other entertainment companies and do it better.
Why should someone hire you?They are hiring a lifetime of musical experience. I started playing piano at 5, I play drums, sing, was in 3 different bands, worked in a recording studio for 6 years, and recorded hundreds of bands. Literally, music is my life. I know within seconds if a song is making a crowd excited or not. I blend music in beat and in key, all genres, and make sense of a variety of music mixed together.
What are the common misconceptions about your services?The main objection we get is our pricing is too high. People think they can get "the same thing for $100 less." It's not the case. Our overall quality of service is literally 10x better than most of our competitors, from simple things like responding to customers emails to equipment quality and actual talent level.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?Like I said in the "why should someone hire you" question, it's been a lifetime journey. Born right into music. I was in a band, but people hire DJs more now.
What are some sources of inspiration or influences on your work?I love epic productions such as Michael Jackson, Peter Gabriel and simple yet magical productions like Guns N Roses. I get inspired by artists that take a chance and create something special.
Tell us about a favorite, unusual or very interesting moment at a wedding:My favorite best man toast was one where he actually sang his speech while strumming an acoustic guitar. Just absolutely magic.
What makes a wedding memorable for you?When I see things like the bride and groom having the time of their lives, surrounded by friends and family, and feeling every emotion from crying happy to laughing happy, reliving their entire lives in 4 hours. It's memorable when I know the bride and groom will look back at their day and it will seem like a dream.
What have weddings taught you?The biggest thing is diversity in people. People are so vastly different from each other, yet, somehow, music is a universal language that everyone speaks.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?Don't over think it or put too much detail into the day, regarding a timeline. Keep it simple, and let the pros do most of the work for you. You want to enjoy your day, not be worried about 50 things that need to happen at an exact time.
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?Cloning myself.
What are 3 words that describe your personality?Energetic. Focused. Organized.
What's your favorite book/movie/work of art?Labyrinth is my favorite movie... but there's so many more I like almost as much like Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. Anything with an epic adventure.
What's your favorite quote?If you believe you can or you can't, you're probably right.
What's your favorite marriage advice?Understand there's no perfect person. Just fill those "imperfections" with your love.
If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?Website designer/programmer.
What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?Honestly, watch a movie, but I rarely get to wind down. I literally work from wake to sleep 7 days per week, for now.
Tell us about your pets, if you have any.I have a Goldfish named Goldie, which you reminded me I need to clean her tank, haha.
What are some of your favorite places to eat—either everyday spots or special occasion splurges?I love seafood. I literally don't care where. Just seafood, all day, everyday if possible.
