Nate was FABULOUS! He was the second vendor we hired and we made the decision after hearing rave reviews from friends and our other vendors and talking with him on the phone. He's so easy to talk to and such a professional... and he's awesome at what he does! He really enjoys doing it too and it shows! We met with him before our wedding and felt so good about our choice... he gave us a questionnaire that asked us about everything. My husband and I like music but we didn't want to choose everything so we were a little overwhelmed by the questions. We told Nate what we liked but said that we really wanted him to use his expertise and play what he thought would work and go with whatever was "working" at our wedding - and he did just that! No cheesy songs and he handled requests exactly as we'd discussed with him :) He was a complete joy to have at our wedding and it felt like he was part of the party for sure!! We would recommend him to everyone!! Thanks Nate!!! Read less

Hiring Nate for our wedding was the absolute best choice we could have made! Both me and my husband have very specific tastes in music and were very worried about hiring a wedding DJ for our wedding. We knew that there was no way that we wanted a DJ that specifically only does weddings because they all tend to play the same songs with limited interest in music at all. After contacting several flaky club DJs from our favorite dance nights in Boston, we were about to give up and put a playlist together ourselves to play on an ipod instead. We wanted a mix of Indie rock, 60's and 70's R&B and rock n' roll and 80's new wave, staying true to our music tastes as well as making it fun and danceable for our guests and older family members. Then we found Nate, all of our stress was instantly relieved. Nate is an avid music fan with similar taste as us, who knows his music history and stays up to date with the latest music trends. He does both weddings and club nights, so we knew instantly he would be a perfect fit. When we met for our consultation, he was extremely personable, organized and professional so we knew we could trust him to make our wedding day a dream come true. He gave us a very thorough questionnaire to take home and fill out as well as a flash drive to upload some of our favorite songs onto in order to ensure he got to know our taste in music inside and out. The day of the wedding, he was on time, but I (the bride) was about 45 minutes late. He did an amazing job of switching up his schedule to play some music before the ceremony to keep the guests entertained while they waited for me. During the reception, he set the mood exactly how we imagined it by mixing our record-breakingly long list of must play songs (yes, we did live up to our very selective promise!) with other great songs he selected to compliment our vision. The dance floor was packed the entire night with every generation of our guests represented, which was quite a feat considering we had banned all modern top 40 music and all songs you would expect to get people dancing at a wedding a la the chicken dance, the macarena, the electric slide, YMCA, etc. Overall, working with Nate was a very pleasant experience and I would highly recommend him Read less
