The first thing you need to know about Eric and his services is that they are simply unparalleled. You will not find a DJ that is so personally attentive, professional, and fun all at the same time. Eric took the extra time to get to know us before our wedding, to make sure that he had every detail perfect. He is very flexible, kind, and funny! Also, Eric has great ideas for your wedding day - you can be very traditional, or you can do some new things that are fun for your guests! You will be so relaxed and confident as you are planning your wedding, knowing that Eric is your DJ. He puts your mind at ease, and delivers on his word. Your guests will be floored by how much fun they have! I highly recommend Eric and his services!!

Truly amazing and incredible is NOT an understatement! We are still getting texts and calls telling us how amazing our dj was! Do not underestimate or question his ways. He is creative and thoughtful and the "love story" he creates is one of a kind! Eric made our wedding exactly what we wanted it to be and people did not leave the dance floor!

Eric was wonderfully helpful in making our wedding a great success. We didn't need to worry or answer any questions on our wedding day since he did thorough homework in getting to know us and our style. He was helpful in every way and walked us through everything we would need. My guest all loved his personality and entertainment. We are thankful for our decision to hire Eric and I would highly recommend him!

I can’t say enough about how great Eric was at our wedding. The best way to describe it is that he was so much more than just a DJ! There are two pieces that really made him stand out from what I’ve seen at previous weddings.
First, he was an essential part of the whole planning process. In our first meeting he helped us set up a schedule for the wedding day and gave us great suggestions for how to order events to make everything work most effectively. He also came to the rehearsal and helped organize everything. I felt completely confident in leaving things in his hands during the wedding day and he absolutely came through.
The second thing that set him apart was the personalization he brought to our wedding. He offered a message to my dad while I walked down the aisle, personalized bridal party entrances and, a love story during the reception. Prior to the wedding I was a little nervous that these personalized pieces would come off as cheesy but they were AMAZING! The message to my dad brought everyone to tears. My husband and I absolutely loved the jokes that he wrote about our bridal party for the entrances – they were so good that our bridal party actually thought we wrote them! Finally, the love story was the story of how we met and fell in love using recordings Eric got from my husband and I separately. Not only was it a great thing to have at the wedding, it was really fun to talk to Eric about husband and our history prior to our wedding.
Eric made us feel very comfortable the whole way. During our meetings we had a great time and my husband said that these meetings were his favorite parts of wedding planning. He had great ideas that helped make the guests feel welcome. On top of all these other great things he was a really fantastic DJ! At the end of the night I had so many people tell me how great Eric was and we had the dance floor full the whole time. Eric provides a great value and I would recommend him highly to anyone planning a wedding!

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!
