Eric provided amazing DJ services for our outdoor destination wedding in La Jolla. His online system for scheduling the details of the event and selecting recommended and “do not play” songs was very convenient for us because we live in a different time zone. He was easy to talk to on the phone and highly professional. We spoke with him before the wedding about our music tastes, the specific songs we needed him to play (e.g., for first/last/parents dances, etc) and the progression of music styles throughout the night, and then he did a fantastic job with the rest!

Eric brought portable microphones for the ceremony (important due to the coastal breezes and background noise) and understood the layout of the venue well enough to perfectly set up his equipment including the extra up-lights that he brought. We didn’t see him much on the day of the wedding but I know he was working hard behind the scenes with our wedding coordinator to keep things running smoothly. He also played a big part in keeping everything on schedule (we wanted to pack a lot of special events into a short period of time and had to vacate the venue by a specific time at the end of the night to avoid extra fees). We never even had to think about timing or transitioning between different components of the event because his announcements made all of that happen perfectly.

Eric also seems to really understand his audience. Our wedding involved a mix of slower oldies at the beginning and progressed into faster dance party music by the end. He knew how to read the crowd and when to pick things up and slow things down. Leading up the wedding, we were really nervous that no one would dance, but on the wedding day, due to Eric’s great music and enthusiasm, we almost had the opposite problem. There were so many people dancing all night long that our only regret is that we didn’t have a bigger dance floor!

I started my search for a DJ for my wedding and came across great reviews for E. Starr Entertainment. I contacted Eric and discussed pricing and what he offered. I was sold. His price and services were unbeatable. He provides DJ services for the ceremony and reception and also up-lighting, which with other vendors is normally an up-charge. He has a very simple and organized online planning form that keeps everything in order for you in regards to the timeline and which songs you want played for special dances and entrances. It was so easy to use and you could input things and come back later to update it. You can also make payments on this site, which made things very easy! Eric was amazing at our wedding. He played exactly what I wanted and knew how to get people on the dance floor, which is so important at a wedding. This can definitely make or break a wedding and Eric made the wedding so successful. I would highly suggest E. Starr Entertainment! Thank you so much for your services!

Eric Starr was our wedding DJ and he is great. He is friendly and easy to work with. He didn't laugh at our ridiculous song choices. Timing was important to my husband and he made sure we were on schedule all night. His energy level kept our guests on the dance floor all night. He kept everything running smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thanks Eric!

Eric was awesome to work with. We approached another DJ for our event but he was already booked (9 months out- for a Sunday!) and he referred us to Eric. Things definitely turned out for the best. Eric got to know us and the music we like and translated that into an awesome time. He was super easy to get a hold of and was able to meet with us with barely any notice. He is a professional DJ at a great price.

Eric was a great DJ for our wedding! He played everything we wanted for the ceremony and reception. He had all of our guests out on the dance floor. He did a great job getting the party going. His announcements were perfect too - he was entertaining but not too over the top, which is what we requested. Definitely recommend him.

Eric Starr was our DJ at our 10/29/11 wedding, and I can’t say too many good things about him! His online Event Portal was very helpful with organizing all the music choices and he 100% listened to everything we wanted at the wedding. I have heard horror stories about DJs ignoring “Don’t play” or “Must play” lists or doing the exact opposite of what a couple asks, and you don’t have to worry about that with Eric. As an MC, he was great; we never would have stayed on track with timing without him, and everyone complemented me later on how well organized it all was. My only disappointment (and I don’t think this is his fault, just a note for future brides) is that a lot my “must play” songs were played right when the dance floor opened, when no one was dancing quite yet, so I didn’t get to have some of my “dancing with my girls!” songs out on the floor. Like I said, not his fault, I also overestimated the amount of time I’d be able to dance without having to socialize, so I probably would have missed them anyway. A special point – my dad and I did a choreographed father-daughter dance with 2 songs edited together and Eric took care of everything for that. We just told him where to start and stop and he made it sound great. Overall, I highly recommend E Starr Entertainment!

We loved our DJ! Eric was amazing and kept the party going and followed our timeline to a 'T'. I would recommend him to anyone! He included all the guests at the reception, kept the request lines open (which at first worried me but it worked out great).
Thank you Eric for making our reception wonderful!

Eric did a good job. He came on time and played what we asked for. I was hoping that at my wedding that I would not have to worry about things getting taken of so I was a bit bummed that I had to check in on things, but given the location he did what he could.

Our wedding was a bit difficult so given that Eric handled it!!

Not to mention that he drived a far distance to get there. Good Price as well.
