What People are talking about

I honestly don’t know where to begin. David’s party was the Bar Mitzvah of the century!
The entertainment for the kids, the DJ, MC, the decor & the staff were all over the top!
Your team made the night flawless. All 230 people had the time of their lives. No detail was left out.
Looking forward to using you again for Noah’s!
Thanks again for everything!


Once again, your crew was AMAZING!
Mike, Brian & your adorable motivators completely rocked.
Leave it to them to get & keep all of the guests out on the dance floor for hours!
They were professional & engaging; Mike is just too much. The kids were eating out of the palm of his hand.
Thank you!


We used Matt and the Shine crew for our son’s bar mitzvah and we could not have been happier!  Matt really listened to our vision for the party and he truly delivered!!! The flow of the party was perfect and our DJ, MC and the amazing dancers had the whole crowd on their feet the entire night! The staff was so friendly and energetic- we really can’t stress enough how they all worked SO hard to make this night perfect for our entire family- and it was! We can’t wait to see what Shine creates for “round 2” with our younger son!

It was a perfect day.  Your attention to detail & assistance with planning was amazing. Steve was an incredible emcee/master of ceremonies. He is a kind, generous, gracious professional with incredible enthusiasm and energy. The party was amazing. The green screen was perfection. The step & repeat, the red carpet, the celebrities, the movie posters etc..everything was fun & in the spirit of the movie theme. I appreciate all your efforts. 
All the best.


What more can I can say than “Wow!” Absolutely amazing!  MC Mike and Matt’s entire team made Brandon’s Bar Mitzvah outstanding.  Their preparation for our event at Victory Sports Lounge was on point! Everything was executed flawlessly. They played the perfect mix of music so everyone had an awesome time.  The dance floor was “never” empty. We’re looking forward to our next bar mitzvah with them.  Matt & his team are incredibly experienced and we highly recommend them to anyone looking to throw an outstanding event.

For 13 years, I had only envisioned how the night would be. Matt, you and your team exceeded my expectations and helped to make Michael’s Bar Mitzvah not only the most incredible night, but truly stress-free. The DJ, MC, dancers, staff, decor, lounge; everything was perfect. We are already planning Drew’s and are looking forward to celebrating with the Shine Family again. You guys are truly the best.


You created our dream event. You are just so special, truly “got” each of our girls and took their ideas and made them reality. The girls are totally different and you managed to make their parties reflect their personalities and identities.  Each party was unique and both were over-the-top amazing. I cannot begin to tell you what it meant to have you there at the event and behind the scenes, and I know you, Ava, are the reason that these parties will be remembered forever.  You will always be known to us as our #partygoddess!”

Love you!


I have been working with Ava (and Shine Events) since 2014 and words cannot begin to express how amazing she is. Ava and her team have always been professional, enthusiastic, friendly and go above and beyond to ensure their clients have a stress free and ultra-fabulous event. Ava embraces my ideas, and has a phenomenal eye for detail. She is creative and genuine always making sure to let me know if she thinks something will/will not work and why. Throughout the years Ava went from being one of my vendors to being a friend and without her (and her incredible team) I do not know where I would be!

Matt is the friendliest and most professional business owner I have had the pleasure to work with. He knows his industry, is not at all pushy, and helped me along with the process of planning my son’s bar mitzvah. He employs incredibly talented people –from the happy dancers, to DJ Brian who spun seamlessly, and emcee Steve who is the BEST I have seen — he had a huge smile on his face the whole night and kept everyone’s attention and up and dancing. Highly recommended. Thank you!


Hi. I just watched the video and I’m crying it’s so amazing. The night was so great and it was all captured on video so now it lives on forever!!

Thank you again to Benny and everyone at Shine. You guys are unbelievable and I appreciate everything you have done for us.
