  • Testimonial Contributor"Hey Frederick, I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that the two DJs you had working the Kate/Tal wedding on Saturday at the Hilton were AMAZING. I was so impressed with their professionalism and attention to EVERY MINUTE detail of this event. They were not only full of personality and amazing entertainers, but I saw them serving the bride and groom drinks as well as other "beyond the scope" services as some DJs would see it. They made my job much easier and I look forward to working with them again. Thanks again for being awesome."

  • Testimonial Contributor"I must admit, that my husband and I were very wary of hiring a DJ for our wedding. We wanted something VERY low-key but with good energy and seriously contemplated just having a friend DJ or playing an iPod during our reception. We interviewed a few DJs in town. We had heard about Frederick and how great he is, but mainly heard of his high energy. We were a bit worried about someone with "high energy" thinking it would be too much for the type of wedding reception we wanted. What ultimately made us hire Frederick was his professionalism and how he actually listened to what we wanted. Other DJs had their own agendas and ways they wanted to run "the show." We. Had. The. Best. Wedding.!!!!!!!!

    Frederick took care of our ceremony music, cocktail hour and our reception. He played the music we wanted and mixed up different genres in such a great way. We had the absolute BEST time at our wedding and could not have asked for anything better. We had a small wedding (45 or so people) and EVERYONE danced. The dance floor was never empty and the music suited everyone from our age group (late twenty to thirty- year olds) all the way up to my grandmother. Frederick did not create a "show" out of our wedding. He made a wonderful memory for us. Our guests raved about him and keep telling us how much fun they had. We are so grateful we were able to have Frederick be part of our wedding. He added such fun to our wonderful night. Warmest Thanks,"
    - Kristina and Brant Jeppson
  • "Frederick, We simply cannot thank you enough for giving us amazing wedding entertainment. Just knowing you were in control of things took away all the worries I had.

  • Testimonial Contributor"Dear Sophisticated Gents, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your services for our Prom. Words can barely express just how thankful I am to you for making this night one that will last in the students' memories for years to come! You were so cordial to all the students and absolutely played each request they made if it was possible. The music was mixed nicely allowing an eclectic selection to meet the desires of each student who were present that evening. All night I received compliments on your sound system, lighting, and wonderful selections of music that you played throughout the night. Your added special little touches to the night were phenomenal! I will definitely recommend you to any school in the future! You are passionate about your job and it shows. You're a fabulous entertainer and your kindness, dedication, and devotion means so much to our students and me. Sincerely,"

  • Testimonial Contributor"Sophisticated Gents Entertainment is by far the best entertainment company I have worked with. The organization, headed by Mr. Frederick Smith, is professional and concerned about what their customers want. Providing their DJ services for the last four years to Viera High School student events; Sophisticated Gents has always asked about the type of music that should be played and followed through with the school's requests. They provide a system worthy of any heavy duty company without the huge price tag.  Their prices and services are reasonable and I know that they will provide an unforgettable experience for all participants. They are one of the few DJ service companies that are in compliance with the State of Florida's Jessica Lunsford Act. It is a true pleasure working with Frederick and his staff. Anyone who chooses this company to provide their entertainment needs, will find as I have, that they will do what they say and give you peace of mind they will do it. Sincerely, "

  • Testimonial Contributor"To Whom It May Concern:
    This letter is my personal recommendation for, "Frederick the Entertainer" and Sophisticated Gents Entertainment. We hired the company for a Holiday Party that combined many departments of our Children's Hospital. This was a large group and we worried that the room would be divided between the two major units. Frederick was our DJ that night and he exceeded our expectations!

    Fredrick was extremely professional from the very beginning. He touched base prior to the event to understand the type of crowd it would be. He was on time and set up before we even got there to set up. Once the party started, Frederick facilitated the dinner buffet and helped everyone get through quickly and efficiently. Shortly afterwards, we did our presentations and raffle, then the dancing started. He has a special way of getting everyone out there and having a good time. He also successfully brought the room together and there did not seem to be the divide that we have had in years past. The most unlikely person, a retired surgeon, that is now the medical director of the hospital, was even out on the floor dancing!

    I feel like a DJ can make or break a party and Sophisticated Gents truly helped us have a fantastic Holiday Party. He catered to our specific needs and delivered quality entertainment the whole night. Working in a Children's Hospital is a high stress job and it was really nice to get together and just have fun with our co-workers. Everyone had a great time! We would certainly use the company again and I would recommend Sophisticated Gents to anyone for all types of events in the future. Sincerely,"

  • Testimonial Contributor"Dear Frederick,

    I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for helping to make our Sales Rally a tremendous success. With your help and the King Center facilities, we were able to take this event to a new level, making it the best and most enjoyable rally we've had to date.

    Our employees are still talking about it. My only problem was determining how I was going to get everyone to sit down and not dance all night.

    You were very professional and made every effort to accommodate our strange requests. Again, thank you for your excellent work. We look forward to working with you for future events.

    Sincerely,"

  • "Frederick, I again wanted to tell you thank you so much for your hard work at our wedding. I am still getting compliments on how great of a job you did. My room was beautiful, your up lighting looked amazing and you definitely know how to get the party started and keep it going. You were so professional and I really appreciate all you did to take charge and let my bridal party and everyone know what to do when the time came for them to do certain things. Andy and I were so pleased with it all and again I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making it so memorable for us. It went by SO fast that I can barely remember much of it but I do remember how amazing your company did at everything. I will keep you in mind for any future events!
