Eric is the best. His service is so personal, and he cared about what I cared about which was evident in his work. He put in more time than any other vendor, and he is way, way more than a DJ. He listened to what we wanted and made it happen. He can flawlessly combine the sentimental, the sweet, the fun, and the funny and make your wedding the personal, heartfelt, energetic party that you want. GO WITH ERIC YOU WON'T REGRET IT. He did our ceremony and our reception, and did a fantastic job.

We knew from the day we got engaged that we wanted our wedding to be a PARTY - one that our friends and family would remember as the most fun they've had in a long, long time for many years to come. That's exactly what we got and I didn't realize until after our wedding what a crucial part the DJ played in that experience - and specifically, Eric.

Eric kept our dance floor full all night and led the most epic "Wobble" I've ever seen (the man's got moves). I didn't expect to dance much at my own wedding between the mingling and conversations with long lost relatives, but my husband and I ended up spending almost the entire night on the dance floor with our guests.

The "love story" was the most amazing thing I've ever seen done at ANY wedding and I'm so glad it was at ours! I had no idea what to expect, but Eric put together the most tasteful, hilarious, tug-at-your-heart-strings rendition of how we met through our engagement that I didn't want it to end. Our guests were captivated through the entire story and Eric even videotaped it for us so we can experience it again and again (which I cannot WAIT to receive by the way!).

Eric went above and beyond in every way and was the perfect mixture of fun, unique, personal and professional. He was incredibly responsive throughout the entire planning process and offered direction anywhere we needed it, all while sculpting our reception based on his past experiences and successes. He even gave us helpful materials for those giving speeches and offered to direct our rehearsal.

Eric played a colossal role in making our ceremony and reception everything we had hoped for and more. I received many compliments specifically on our DJ and our reception pictures are wonderful thanks to the packed dance floor and smiling faces. A huge thanks to Eric for making our celebration unique, personal and a total blast!

Eric was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He is not a DJ he is a Wedding Entertainer Director - He literally planned my wedding for me. Eric established a timeline of events for my reception that he sent to my other vendors before the wedding, on the day of the wedding he executed the discussed timeline seamlessly, and throughout the wedding planning processes gave such great advise that truly helped my husband and I immensely. All of my guest and even my other hired vendors commented on how great Eric was- professional people who have literally seen more weddings than the average person stated that Eric was the best DJ they have ever seen ! He knows his music, what works for a wedding, and how to read a crowd better than I have ever seen at any wedding I have attended. You can not have a fantastic wedding if you do not hire Eric!!

Thanks for everything!!

Eric was the highlight of our wedding vendors. We met twice for planning, both were absolutely helpful and well organized. He even was present at our rehearsal which put me 100% at ease. We went through the whole time line and he took the time to personalize our entire day from telling our love story, to our wedding party introductions. My husband and I had given him a short description of each person, memories that we had with them and who they were to us, and he put the perfect music to each persons introduction. It was almost like he knew who they were! Our love story was beautiful, and it is something all of our guests mentioned they had never seen done before. He added little things during the reception to keep people entertained and interested in what was going on. From little games to keep people occupied while they waited to get their plates to gathering all of our guests out not he dance floor for a photo op with everyone! Eric made our day just that, ours. I would recommend him to anyone! One of the nicest people we met while planning our wedding!

Eric is awesome! He made our wedding fun and full of energy and was a joy to work with every step of the way. Prior to the event, the planning process was great - from the one on one meetings to discuss our expectations to the website that we were able to use to plan our event.
I had so many guests come up to me afterwards asking who he was stating that he was "the best dj they had ever seen". I also had many of my family members who claim to not dance come to the dance floor and cut a rug.

Eric Herod is simply amazing! Throughout the planning process he helped us to organize and plan the perfect ceremony and reception. He gave us ideas and helped us to create a unique, personalized experience; his introductions and the love story will always be a wonderful memory! The energy and environment he creates is upbeat, fun, and yet relaxed. He had everyone including my 92 year old grandmother dancing and having a grand time! He keeps the evening on schedule without being pushy, and without you really knowing he is doing it.

Eric is very professional and able to handle any situation. The night before our wedding the best man had a family emergency, and was not able to make it to the wedding. Eric handled the situation with grace, and no one ever knew that we shifted the bridal party. He was able to just move things around and make it work. He took the stress out of a high stress situation and we were able to relax and not worry.
I would highly recommend Eric to every bride and groom!

My husband and I have three children and planning for our big day was proving to be difficult. Eric was so flexible and accommodating with our busy schedule. He showed us his dedication and how much he truly cared about making our wedding the best that it could be. Eric has so much passion for his work and really enjoys what he does. We loved that about him. It made it so enjoyable to meet with him knowing that he really cared about our wedding and its success.

During the wedding the transitions between songs were flawless. He had all of our guests dancing young and old. By the end of the night everyone was commenting how great of a dj Eric is. They were all so impressed and amazed at his talent. Many people even told us it was the best wedding they had been to. I attribute that to eric.

He's not like your average dj. He not only dj'd but helped us to plan our event, he gave us invaluable information, he entertained and he told our guest our love story of how my husband and I came to be where we are today. I think the love story is biggest thing that makes eric stand out from others. It is something something so special and unique that will have you and your guest in tears. It is really difficult to describe how amazing eric is but without him our wedding would not have been as wonderful as it was.
