By providing several types of wedding entertainment and services, (DJ, Guitar, Lighting, Karaoke, Decoration, Video & more) Asheville Wedding Entertainment makes your planning easier and saves you money!

You can rely on over 25 years of professional entertainment experience throughout the USA to help your day run smooth and keep the fun times rolling! Please stop by for REVIEWS (under Testimonials) and pictures at AshevilleWeddingEntertainment.com.

I have DJ music from every genre and the latest hits. This day is all about YOU and I am here to play YOUR favorite music while keeping everyone else entertained too. For additional fun for everyone, add Karaoke with over 100,000 songs! Dance lighting and haze (for the club effect) are also great on the dance floor.

A popular choice is to also have live music performed on the acoustic guitar for the ceremony, cocktail hour or reception. You can check out song samples, videos and a playlist (or your favorites can be learned) at EricEverett.com

You can also hear a wedding favorite, Cannon In D, here: http://d3ew4rh7xxgmkq.cloudfront.net/performer/34357/audio/34357_CanonInD.mp3

Uplighting and decoration can also add elegance and color to any space. I can also provide videography or create family movies or music videos to show at the wedding that forever after call up those great memories instantly. You can even add interactive games and fun for all ages.

Don’t forget the fun times for the rehearsal dinner like a Mystery or great surprises like a music video made by the bride or groom sung for the other. You can also make one at the Bachelor or Bachelorette party!

There's also an article at my website about WHAT NOT TO FORGET AT YOUR WEDDING under Adult Party Ideas. I will be glad to work with you to be able to create the most fun with any budget.

Please feel free to e-mail eee@AshevilleWeddingEntertainment.com or call (828) 808-1757 just to chat about ideas or advice or questions about anything. I look forward to talking with you about your big day!

Describe your DJ style:
Fun! I encourage everyone to have fun in whatever way they like. I am not pushy or overly talkative on the mic. I am observant of the feel of the moment to help create the best atmosphere I can for all.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
I encourage as much input as you would like to give! You can map out all the music for the day, including a DO NOT play list if you like or just give me some favorites as a guide. Everyone can make their requests anytime and I will keep them within the guidelines that you ask for, if any.
What is your usual attire?
Formal to fitting with whatever the wedding theme / atmosphere might be - and I have been in a variety of them from Hawaiian to Halloween!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I have over 13,000 songs and will gladly purchase more for you if need be. I may ask for an additional fee for over $20 worth of songs that haven't made the Top 40 or you can provide them on an ipod or CD ahead of time if you prefer.

Just Me, Myself and I and we all get along pretty well :)
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
No minimum.

Please!

Absolutely!
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I have a wide variety of equipment with many kinds of lighting from decorative uplighting for all spaces to dance lighting, hazers, bubble machines and Karaoke! Lighting is mainly LED so it uses less energy and is not hot.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
I can bring my own table. Set up time depends on the amount of equipment I am setting up. Generally a 45 minute minimum.

Not much, it just depends on all I am setting up.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, not usually at a wedding. Other events, possibly in exchange for a discount on services.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I am happy to emcee, but keep the talking to minimal early on with possibly more as the fun progresses depending on the amount or tone of party / dance encouragement requested by the host.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Cash. Ok, not so much of that, more dance challenges, reminders that they only live once and tomorrow may not be! Carpe Diem baby! And of course playing their requests and timing of the flow of the music through the evening.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
It is appreciated if I am allowed to get some food quickly during the dinner hour, but of course the music keeps playing and I am attending to it at all times. I am grateful to those that can provide it, but it is not required.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes of course!
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have other area DJ's that I can call and see if they are available. I have the music all set on an ipod as backup to the laptop so it can be played by others who may be available as well. I am happy to reserve additional backup plans though this will add to the cost. I have only missed 2 or so events and that was 10+ years ago.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
Rarely, but not unless there is a HUGE amount of time between them. 
 And I always arrive early.
What is your overtime rate?
$100 / hr or less depending on what is involved.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?

Eric was wonderful to work with throughout our entire wedding process. When it came to planning our music for our reception, he was very accommodating and always upbeat and excited to answer our questions. When the big day came, he was the perfect DJ! He played songs from our suggested list, as well as included requests from the crowd. Our guests complimented several times on how much fun they had dancing due to the excellent flow of the songs. There was never a lull in the excitement. We had a blast with Eric and we would recommend him to any newly engaged couples!

Eric was such a wonderful DJ. He worked so well with us, and was incredibly flexible. We had to reserve pretty last minute, the timing of the event was a bit of a mess, but he worked with me on everything. He was always available to talk to, fulfilled all our requests, and knew how to play the best type of music. My guests all had such a wonderful time, I would definitely work with him again.

Eric and I started talking about the wedding several months prior (per my now wife's instructions to find a DJ). I believe I enjoy an eclectic assortment of music anything from county, to rock, to bluegrass, to I don't know what. As far as putting together a song list additional to what I created Eric did a great job.

In addition to this we had some unpredicted circumstances come up. We lost power (this was an outside event). This was in no ways Eric's fault. We lost power right at the beginning of the reception. Eric helped turn what could have been very bad into an awesome night. He handled everything very well.

Everyone was dancing, and many people that probably shouldn't have been thanks to Eric.

He is very professional, flexible, and great to work with. I would recommend to someone with any background or preference. Also great as a DJ or Performer.

From DJing to MCing to playing and singing Beatles tunes for our ceremony, everything Eric did for our wedding was perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Eric was easy to work with and flexible. He even met with us in person (at no additional cost) to go over the wedding venue setup and discuss music options and other details. Eric did a great job at working in songs from our playlist as well as playing additional songs that fit the mood of the evening.

Eric did a fantastic job at your wedding! Not only did he just DJ the reception, he cued the music for the ceremony and did a live set during the cocktail hour. He was great with last minute adjustments, and very professional through the whole day! If you're looking for a DJ who really puts forth the extra effort to personalize your day and make it that much more special, Eric is definitely the go to guy.
