We got married September 2016 and had a great experience with Eric! We had meetings with him usually at Panera and sometimes he brought his young son…but his son is so well behaved and usually just sat next to him quietly playing games on his electronics. He has such great ideas that he offers to keep people entertained all night long. He worked well with all of our other vendors as well. Our family friend who made our cupcakes was setting up and said she struck up a conversation with him and thought he was wonderful! Our photographer said he worked with Eric before as well and told us we made a good choice with Eric. He is an expert and knows what songs will get everyone out on the dance floor! He is also easy to get a hold of either via email or text. We had no issues with Eric and recommend him to anyone!

We spoke to Eric (Party Starters DJ) in 02/2016 about our wedding on 8/27/2016, we had interviewed a lot of djs but Eric seemed to say all the right things and we decided to book with him. Per his policy we needed to give him a 50% down payment of $472.50 and pay the rest on the day of the wedding, which we sent out to him right away. After signing a contract over the internet (my fiancé and I live in New Hampshire) I found multiple negative reviews about Eric and began to get worried. We set up to meet with him in New York on April 10th where I had planned to ask him about these reviews. When the day came we waited for an hour and a half for him to show up. He “mixed up” our meeting location and “forgot” both his work and personal cell phones in his gym locker. He promised up and down to make our day perfect and that we had nothing to worry about, gave us a website with a packet to fill out and sent us on our way.Finally in June we had finished our packet, chosen our songs and I began trying to contact Eric since I had to go to Syracuse the weekend of 07/08/16 for my bridal shower. For 3 weeks I tried to contact him (we hadn’t heard a single word from him since April) I called and texted his work and personal cell phones, sent him a message and meeting request on his online planning website, and emailed him. The only response I got was to my email, an automatic reply saying he was on vacation and would answer emails when he returned. After leaving multiple messages that we needed to talk to him and figure something out he sent me a text saying he has been on vacation and very sick but would contact me when he was feeling better. . My Dad got him on the phone on July 8th, told him we no longer need his services and would like our money back. He then told my dad he didn’t have the money to refund us as he didn’t escrow our deposit (as required of him) but could get it to us by 07/22/2016. It is now 07/31 and still no refund and Eric will no longer answer any calls.

This is Eric. I run Party Starters DJs. (not Party Starters Tampa, a great DJ service in Tampa Florida or CNY Party Starters or other pretend companies out there) I've decided to speak out against a case, a plethora of negative reviews and conspiracy theory of negative stories about cancellations. I am actively fighting, in court, negative, fraudulent and completely made up reviews of me and my service. I am also fighting a case in court claiming I cancel events and don't refund people. First, yes, I had a handful of issues as I tried to expand my business a few years ago. I tried to bring in DJs. But It backfired and the DJs were gone, leaving me with a handful of double bookings that I had to cancel and refund, which I did. This was the price of learning on the fly as a small business. I learned that a service such as DJ'ing needs a skillful person. That's why I only do weddings now, I won't ever want to expand. I have an extremely long proven track record of being an outstanding DJ. Folks, the case I am fighting will prove in my favor. I'm happy to confirm we are close to clearing my good name. I am also excited to clear up erroneous, exaggerated claims of lack of service, customer service, and false claims from jealous, small DJ company rivals. I encourage you to ask for my references. I'll provide an onslaught of recent and past clients who would be happy to provide me the highest reviews. You can see actual pictures and videos from their actual weddings. I invite you to my http://www.Facebook.com/wedding.djs page.... look at the weekly posts / events.
The pile of jealous, small individual ran DJ companies will be exposed. I am expecting by the end of the year or beginning of next year, to get all the court paperwork together to have negative and fraudulent reviews taken down everywhere and prove me right. And ladies and gentlemen, it's only about the provable, measurable, definable facts. It's just a long process I can't wait to win. Thank you!

Avoid Eric at all costs! We booked party starters DJ over a year before our wedding including paying in full. With less then 48 hours before our reception was to take place he cancels on us saying he double booked us. I don't know how this could happen especially after booking it over a year ago. He includes language in his contracts that he has never cancelled, this is a total misrepresentation as you can see multiple reviews where this same thing has occurred. Avoid him at all costs you don't know if he will actually show up for your event.

By far the best DJ I have every seen at a party! When we hired him for our wedding it was about a year away. He had me convinced he would make it a great party and would do anything possible to make our night fantastic and that's exactly what happened! After signing I read the ugly reviews about him and got nervous. He reassured me everything would be fine and it was! Truth be told, why should I need to contact my DJ so often? Bridezillas out there, guess what, you don't need to be in contact with your DJ every week or even month! I had other things to worry about and didn't need to be bothering him. He said he would be there and he was! We met up after filling out the super freaking helpful packet and I started to get really excited. (BTW the packet was amazing. Things I wouldn't even think of he had in there for me to think about. It was one thing for the wedding that was stress free!) I messaged him I think the week of the wedding and then the day before and everything turned out good. Our wedding was outside and it was iffy on the weather. Lightning struck his speaker at our ceremony and arched into him through his phone. We had no clue because he continued the music as we ran inside to escape the rain immediately following our ceremony. Long story short, he should have went to the hospital and thank goodness there was a 4 hour break between ceremony and reception for him to get seen by the ambulance and he felt better by the time the reception came. (We told him to get checked out and that his health was more important to us than music but he felt better) He STILL put on an amazing show and there were no complaints anywhere! He transitioned music so well and could feel the crowd and knew exactly what songs would be a hit! It was a fantastic (and electric!!!) night and there were people on the dance floor right up until last song! I HIGHLY recommend Eric at Partystarters! Thank you so much!!!

PLEASE BEWARE- HE CANCELS! We spoke to Eric a full year before our wedding July 16th of this year. He was a great salesman on the phone, said all the right things. So we booked him and paid in full. A few months before the wedding we had our meeting with him to set up the flow and itinerary. The meeting seemed normal and I was getting excited. 2 weeks before the wedding we started to get nervous because we hadn't heard from him. The week of the wedding I got an email saying he knew or wedding was coming up. He and I exchanged texts for the next three days but he kept making excuses as to why he couldn't actually call and speak to me. This really made my husband and I nervous. Thursday before the wedding he texted and said everything was all set for Saturday. ........them the bomb. ........Friday morning- THE DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING, I woke up to an email telling me why he couldn't dj the wedding. He gave us several long winded excuses in the email. I was absolutely freaking out. I could not believe he could do something so terrible. We found a BETTER dj service and our wedding turned out perfect, no thanks to Eric. We were informed that we were not the only ones he had done this to!! Please be cautious. I would never want this to happen to anyone else.

We had the same experience as the previous reviewer- we contacted the DJ, sent a check and then NOTHING for months. Only when I proceeded to step things up did we get a response. Eric was unavailable for our wedding but promised he would send his expierenced brother with equipment in his place. (This service came recommended by our reception vendor). We did not get any kind of discount. Feeling better after meeting in person, we got all of the details squared away. Filled out lots of questions about our music preferences (alternative, rock and 80s)
The DJ showed up with equipment for the outside ceremony and played everything we asked not to be played while guests were seated. All of our processional music was fine, our officiants Mic worked and the outro music was correct. As we were announced into our reception, the DJ pronounced my married name wrong (after going over it). Our dances were requested to be cut short, they were not (i had to tell him to cut the Mom/Son dance). All of our "want to dance to songs" were played during dinner. I (bride) had to physically go tell him to switch the music (and my dinner was taken away in the process). The Mic wouldn't work for any of the speeches and we had to walk him through the cake cutting stuff. At the end of the night, I realized id never thrown my bouquet. He kept playing Disney music and thankfully we didn't want to do any of that extra reception stuff we opted out of on the website. He did stay "after hours" (3pm-11pm) for an additional $40 and was very nice. On the bright side, the overall cost was much less than other DJs in the area.

Party Starters did such a marvelous job from start to finish with our wedding reception. We were so comfortable after speaking with them the first time over the phone that we booked them before meeting in person. In fact, we never met until our wedding day. We planned a wedding out of town and Party Starters couldn't have been more accommodating and generous with their time in the weeks leading up to the big day. The lighting and ambiance created was simply awesome and the music played kept people on the dance floor all night. These guys are truly professionals and we would recommend them for ANY type of event. Thanks for making are huge party such an unforgettable blast!

The experience started out very good. We had several good conversations on the phone, and then finally met with him a few months before the wedding. After we paid in full Eric seemed to Vanish until we decided to call him 3 days before the wedding. It took him a full day to get back to us. When it came time for the wedding his computer crashed as soon as he plugged it in. He couldn't figure out how to fix the situation, and thankfully one of our guest was able to figure out via a phone call with her dad. While the situation pushed the wedding back 45 minutes he was down by the venue getting changed for the wedding (not helping). He was very reassuring that one of our friends was taking care of it. Our guest was giving him a break. Once the problem was fixed he asked a different guest to use their credit card to pay for songs off of itunes. During the reception he skipped almost all of the songs we requested in the must play list, and he was very rude and confrontational with guests when the requested songs. I would never hire him again. EVER

RUN AS FAR AND AS FAST AS YOU CAN AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AND ERIC

We hired Eric a full year before our wedding date and paid him in full for services agreed upon (DJ/MC, a photo booth and a monogram). Eric is hard to get in touch with, did not show up to our meeting before the wedding (my now husband and I flew in from out of state to meet with him) and he failed to provide the photo booth and monogram at our wedding.

We had a couple phone calls where he promised to reimburse us the $500+ dollars we had paid for the photo booth and monogram, only to be ignored for months. Upon following up on his word of reimbursement, he started using profanity and called me a spoiled bitch and would not be refunding us as he had already spent that money and did not have any in reserves apparently to give back what he stole from us. He kept making excuses, and upon me freaking out about losing that money he continued to call me a bitch and stated he only said he'd reimburse me because he thought he could get future business out of us, but when we said we'd never use him again, he promptly retracted his reimbursement statement and said if I called him again he'd pursue a harassment charge (for me bugging him too much about getting our money back).

He is extremely unorganized and made many mistakes during our wedding reception despite the fact that we filled out his gigantic wedding package with every detail.

He may offer a good price, but you get what you pay for. And Eric is ANYTHING BUT PROFESSIONAL. We will never use him again and will NEVER recommend him for anything. And I am writing this review AGAIN to warn everyone I can about what a scam this company is.
