Curtis Knight Entertainment - Boston Wedding DJ

Rich Padula

Rich Padula - DJ with Curtis Knight Entertainment

Rich Padula is a talented, confident, soft spoken DJ/MC who has been doing weddings for a little more than 7 years. He cut his teeth doing live sound for bands, so he brings a world of professional technical ability and can create wonderful sound and fix things that break, usually very quickly. He has also been a general contractor and can build houses, so his abundance of life skills gives him a certain calm and likability that really helps him please his wedding audiences. He will adapt, improvise and overcome any problems in his way or in your way, on the day of your special event. If you sit down with him and talk with him it won't take long before you realize that you like him and you will be comfortable having him in control of your very important celebration. He knows all genres and what and what not to play and can beat mix with the best of them (one song into the next, keeping the beat the same).

The appointment process with the office was seamless! The experience with DJ Rich was absolutely incredible! (See more below)
I must say, and I'm not just saying this... DJ Rich might possibly be one of the best personable DJ's I have ever had the pleasure to meet. We are blessed to have had him work our wedding. This guy literally got everyone to tear up the dance floor and get totally out of their comfort zones. He read the crowd and room with military precision. There were zero errors, and if there were, none of us knew it. Renee and I were so pleased however, the best part... our guests were still talking about it the next day. "That DJ was fu$&@% awesome!!!" LoL What can we do to help continue to make CKE shine?? Reviews anywhere you want them, you name it. 5, 10, 100 stars! Whatever the scale is, we will max it out!  Curtis... you my friend... have an entertainment operation that is iron clad. Absolutely incredible experience, it made us emotional! Haha. In a good way! You and your staff take this entertainment business to another level. I'm positive that when CKE comes into a gig, all of your clients don't just feel like a client, they feel like friends of yours. We felt like DJ Rich was a long time friend. He knew that crowd by the talent he has and the result was pure magic.  We love you! Thank you for making our already incredible day end with the perfect night.
We will remember this for the rest of our lives. With love and blessings, Rob and Renee Marr

How was your experience working with our office to book your event ?
Booking with Curtis was a breeze. Curtis returned my call soon after I left a message. Your on-line account is easy to see with everything in a glance. Rich is very professional. He called me a couple of times before the event to ask questions trying to understand as much as possible to prepare for Sunday's work. They were not only extremely professional, they were also very kind and patient. I heard one or two groups messed up their music pieces and the program was heading to disaster. Rich patiently and quickly helped the performers locate their music and downloaded. The performance went on smoothly. Our stage managers were full of praises for Rich and his assistant. We are very happy with their job. Thank you!
