Wedding Receptions

     You deserve the wedding of your dreams and there are many ways to make your wedding unique. From intro’s to the music played  for your first dance to the experience of a bride and father or groom and mother taking to the dance floor for a special moment, The Quake knows what it takes to make each moment of your reception memorable and unique.  During the preparation stages of your wedding , you will have a dialogue with us. Our goal during this time is to let you know that there are no rules when it comes to what you want at your reception.  It’s our job to act as a guide, to help create the best plan to make your dreams a reality.  Based on your wants and desires, we will suggest musical and stylistic choices that will insure this is YOUR wedding and not just another party.


Like a wedding reception, there is no “one right way” to provide entertainment at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah party. Entertainment styles, timelines, and packages can vary greatly from party to party. The biggest event in young Jewish person’s life is their Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Many months of study, preparation, and hard work culminate into a beautiful and sacred ceremony. The party to celebrate this momentous occasion with family and friends calls for great entertainment. Quake Entertainment Enterprises, along with Cutting Edge Entertainment, deliver the energy and fun that you and your guests deserve with a wide variety of packages and options, including Band and DJ, Band or DJ.  Quake Entertainment, along with Cutting Edge Entertainment, realize that a big part of a good Mitzvah party, at least from the parents’ perspective, is keeping the kids busy.  Our Bar & Bat Mitzvah philosophy is very simple: we treat your child like they are the most important person in the world.

Birthdays and Anniversaries

     It has been a great pleasure and privilege for The Quake to play for so many birthday and anniversary celebrations, and these are the celebrations that are among our favorites to perform.  These celebrations are intimate, you and your close, personal guests have the opportunity to interact in a very different way. With The Quake, your event has no limit! You are like no other, and your celebration should be no different. We’ll help you customize your entertainment, and the flow of your event. From an “all out” dance party… a tribute band…celebrity impersonator… broadway theme…The Quake can bring your dreams to life. It takes many years of experience and excellent listening and planning skills to deliver this.

Charity Galas

     Fundraising galas can be challenging. Luckily, The Quake has performed numerous charity events. We will meet to establish your goals and vision. We know there are many possible components to a charity gala; therefore, we are mindful of timeliness and timelines to ensure you accomplish your goals.

Corporate Events

Corporate parties require a special touch… an eye and an ear, as well. Every crowd is different and every company has individual goals for its event. It can be a challenge to get your co-workers to drop their inhibitions and get out on the dance floor. The Quake knows from experience not only how to make it happen, but also how to make it fun! We can watch and read your crowd to understand where we need to go next. Plus, we will interact with all of the planners of the events — from your in-house staff to your caterer — to develop the right timeline and create the right mood to make your corporate event a big success.

Carl Smith

Band Leader and Point of Contact

You won’t plan your event with a sales person, manager, or some non-musician who will not be available to you during your event. Carl Smith, a Philadelphia native, La Salle University graduate, and bandleader of The Quake is your single point of contact throughout all of the planning stages of your event. He is always present and performs with the band at every single event, ensuring that all your expectations are met. He is also willing to act as the point of contact with your other vendors prior to and during the event. Your satisfaction is our main goal and we know that entertainment plays an essential role in your party’s success. 

There’s no way our wedding reception would have gone as smoothly, or been as exciting and unforgettable without The Quake. Between the fantastic variety of music and Carl’s emceeing, they ran the show; heck, they were the show!!
