FOREWORD: If you are looking for YMCA, Celebration, We Are Family and the Electric Slide type of party there are 1000 other tuxedo sporting mobile services that you can hire and I'm sure they are eager for your business.

Still with me? GREAT!

FUN WARNING: You must be at least (point to yourself) this awesome to ride this ride.

NOW if you want a totally fun party that your friends and family will be talking about for years then look no further. I thrive on making every event I DJ memorable and most importantly as fun as possible. Nothing makes me happier than to see you dancing all night long -- it's a part of who I am.

And what kind of DJ am I? Well let me tell you: I am the "dance until your feet are tired and your face hurts from the good time you are having" type of DJ. In my "professional" party opinion, guests are there to do three things: mingle, drink and dance. Your guests are NOT there to see a laser light show and listen to a MC on a microphone. My parties are dance floor FULL, and crazy lights and cheesy MC free.

A sampling of my most recent playlist includes: Prince, James Brown, Joan Jett, Montell Jordan, The Steve Miller Band, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, The Beatles and Usher. As an added bonus, playlist customization is also available. Afterall, I want to DJ the party you want to be at.

Remember that besides the beautiful and poignant ceremony you are planning, the DJ (that's me) makes or breaks the rest of your special event. I've seen the very good, the vanilla, the bad and the wish-I-could-forget DJs. It is so cliche but also so very VERY accurate: with DJs you really do get what you pay when it comes to professionalism, talent and fun, and I am well worth every dollar you'll invest.


Make sure to check out my reviews and lets chat about your event very soon.

Warmest regards with a side of radical,

We loved having Benny as our DJ! He was great with communicating on the days
leading up to our wedding and asked all the right questions to make sure
everything went smoothly and there were no surprises. I especially liked that he
made a playlist for us on Spotify with all of the songs for the ceremony to
ensure we had the right versions and allowed me to make last minute changes without stress. The ceremony music was flawless and he made sure everyone was up and dancing during
the entire reception!
Thank you Benny for DJing my wedding and your part in making it the best day of
my life!!

Ben made this event amazing. He was exactly what I was looking for with a DJ. He kept the party going and the dance floor packed. We met prior to the event and he provided a ton of options for songs whether it be a first dance or getting the party started with the grand entrance into the reception. You can't go wrong having Ben as your DJ, my wedding was such a blast and I knew I would have nothing to worry about with Ben behind the DJ booth!

Ben was a great DJ. From before the wedding and going through the songs to understanding the type of experience we wanted for our guests.

I highly recommend Ben as his services were professional, and everyone walked away commenting on how good the reception was.

My husband and I got married in SE Portland at Lakeside Gardens. We selected DJ Royale to provide our music at our wedding because we heard such great things from friends. He was very helpful and experienced when meeting prior and during the wedding. We selected all the music that we wanted him to play and he created exactly the atmosphere we were looking for on our special day. DJ Royale also was very attuned to other parts of the event such as when people were giving speeches or making announcements. We would definitely recommend DJ Royale to couples getting married in Portland and surrounding areas. If you are looking to have the most beautiful ceremony and lively reception choose DJ Royale to make your day rememberable!

This DJ did an awesome job of playing all the songs we requested. Though the songs that were special to us ranged across all different genres -- dance, country, rock, crooners -- he blended them seamlessly and kept the dancing going all night. Everyone was having a great time: our friends, family, grandparents, kids, there was stuff for everyone. There wasn't a song that played where people weren't out on the dance floor. We received so many compliments on DJing. Awesome job! Would highly recommend if you want to see everyone having a great time.

DJ Ben did a fantastic job creating a fun atmosphere and dance party for everyone. My husband and I had a blast and felt like we really just got to sit back and enjoy the evening because Benny was doing such a great job running the show, without being overbearing. He really helped the entire night run smoothly, and did a great job transitioning from the ceremony to the events throughout the reception. Ben got everyone on the dance floor without any of the cheesy songs that you hear at most weddings. We could not have asked for a more perfect night and owe a lot of that to Benny's ability to read the group, direct events throughout the night, and DJ expertise.

I think the best review for Ben came from my guests. I had countless guests at my wedding come up to me during the reception to thank me for playing such good music at our wedding - music that they actually wanted to listen to and liked. Personally, I don't know if I've ever attended a wedding and liked the music enough that I wanted to thank the bride and groom for it, but I literally had COUNTLESS people who approached me to thank me for the music!

I felt very flattered to receive these compliments for the music, but really all the praise goes directly to Ben. Ben listened to me and my fiance's ideas and crafted a beautiful soundtrack for our wedding day that really helped to set the tone and get everyone in the mood for a festive day of celebration and fun.

And people danced! We had people at the end of the night saying they didn't want to leave, because they were having such a good time dancing. I can't say enough good things about Ben! He was a pleasure to work with and helped create an amazing atmosphere for our wedding. Happy bride, happy groom, happy GUESTS...what more can you ask for?

Ben met all of our expectations and then some. He met with us prior to our wedding to get a feel for our musical taste as well as what kind of mood we wanted set for our reception. I felt very at ease with having Ben as our wedding DJ. It was one less thing to stress about for our big day. He was all about creating a special and fun evening for us. The dance floor was full at our reception and everyone appeared to have a great time and the music selections were spot on with our taste. Thanks again Ben for a memorable day!

Benny was everything we wanted in a DJ, and more! He was very easy to communicate and get along with before and during the wedding. We met up with him and discussed our vision for the event as well as emailed and chatted about the details through the planning process. All of our guests at the wedding had a fabulous time, enjoyed all of the music he played, and had nothing but great things to say about him and his style. Ben started hours before the wedding to make sure everything was set up and working properly, he did a great job with the ceremony, and then he had the dance floor packed all evening long and into the early morning! You will not be disappointed if you choose DJ Royale for your wedding celebration.

Ben was fantastic! My husband and I live in London and did the majority of our planning from abroad. We had a few skype calls and a lot of emails with Ben and he was always helpful and responsive (more so than me with everything I was juggling!). He was very detailed about what our needs were and ensuring he had all the logistical info he'd need for the day of. We didn't give much specific input on the music, we trusted him to read the crowd and play music that would get people dancing. The main thing I wanted was a great party where our guests were dancing and enjoying themselves, and Ben delivered. I've been to two other weddings he has DJ'd and he's done an amazing job at both. They had different vibes and both had full dance floors, which is why I knew he be great at reading the crowd.

Ben was also just great to work with, relaxed and professional, and able to handle things without any fuss, he just had things covered. A few examples...The week before the wedding we realized we needed to have a mic for the ceremony and our venue didn't have one that would work. Ben had no issues adjusting and provided the necessary equipment. I had our pre-ceremony music, processional and recessional on my phone but when none of us could find the pre-ceremony playlist as guests were arriving, he stepped in and played some of his own stuff. I also didn't think about getting my phone back from him later, and when I remembered he had already sorted it out with one of my bridesmaids to get it back into my bag. Lastly our photographer got in touch with me the next day as she'd left one of her lenses behind. Ben had realized, picked it up for her that night, and before I could start calling around they'd sorted it out without me needing to communicate between them. Ben was on top of things all night and took it all in stride.

Ben is a great DJ and a great guy, and from experiencing three weddings he's done, one as the bride, I can say he is a fantastic choice!

Communication with DJ Ben from beginning to end was easy and helpful. He did a great job with the music, kept people dancing (on the dance floor and in line at the photo booth), played the music we requested, and stuck around a bit longer while the party was still going. As things died down he slowed things down a bit for one last dance before we hit the road.

Ben/ DJ Royale is exactly what you always want from a DJ or in any industry. Someone easy to work with, fun, flexible and follows through completely.

Before our Special Day:
Ben insisted to meet with us to discuss our ideas and suggest some of his own, his "Do's & Don'ts" of the wedding dance party was entertaining and realistic. This settled alot of my nerves about the reception, Ben excudes an addictive smile and assuring confidence. In the coming months before our wedding Ben consistently touched base with us to make sure everything was in order as far as music, what we wanted to hear, and just to reassure us that everything was good as gold.

Day of Our Wedding:
Ben was over an hour and a half early and already set up even before any of the bridal party was there for pictures or the catering finished their set up. He had two locations for sound which I'm sure isn't always the easiest thing to accomodate but it was flawlessly done making my wedding day much less stressful. The reception was amazing, his background music after our live band finished really set the mood for a summer evening at a winery. When it came time to dance Ben's choices of music were to say the least awesome and he kept the dance floor packed until literally the very last moment the venue allowed. He even squeezed one more slow song in for good measure.

I hope this review brings Ben's DJ Royale services many other fun events to do, since I never wanted my own to end thanks to him.
I would've paid even more had I known Ben would add such a lasting impression to a monumental night that far exceeded my expectations

We chose Ben to be our DJ because we did not want "typical" wedding music (no YMCA, Celebration, etc.). Ben was eager to jump in and figure out just the right mix we wanted. He met with us beforehand and reassured us that he would not play anything we did not want. He also came to the rehearsal so he knew how the day was supposed to go.

At the wedding Ben announced different parts of our wedding and even helped cover for some hiccups in the wedding. My very particular groom was very pleased with the music Ben put together for our cocktail hour. Later, we had so much fun dancing to the music!

Ben was one of the very few wedding vendors we hired that was always on time and always professional. With all the stresses of a wedding, this was such a relief.

I cannot recommend Ben highly enough. He definitely knows how to throw a party!

Pacific North Fresh Inc, aka Ben DJed my wedding at the Wonder Ballroom on March 14, 2009. For starters, Ben is a consummate professional, a great listener, and an all-around fun person to work with. He seamlessly kept the evening moving through dinner, speakers, first dance, and parents' dances, while maintaining a low profile onstage. As if that wasn't enough, he proceeded to throw down and kept the dance floor packed all night long. Almost two years later, my friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had dancing at my wedding and I have Ben to thank for that. Even the staff at the Wonder Ballroom was impressed by Ben's musical selections, diversity of his playlist, and his ability to read the room and keep the party going. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone who wants to ensure that their dance party is a complete success.

I would highly recommend Ben Christiansen for a wedding or any other venue requiring music or microphones. He was the DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception which were at two different locations at Bridal Veil lakes in the Columbia Gorge in June, 2008. Ben was extremely professional and flexible throughout the process. He agreed to meet with us months before the event to discuss our specific interests in terms of the playlist and our needs at the venue. He also agreed to be present at the wedding rehearsal. On our wedding day, he was both punctual and perfect during the ceremony covering the seating music as well as the entrance of the wedding party. He also provided sound for microphones used during the ceremony without a glitch. He then raced over to the other side of the venue to set-up for the reception and was perfectly on cue during our entrance as well as throughout the evening. His quality of service is remarkable. His value for the cost, outstanding. Ben is a good friend to whom I entrusted a very important job on my most important day. He delivered better that I could have ever expected.
