Congratulations on your upcoming celebration and to thank you for taking the time to consider myself as your professional DJ for your wedding.

I would like to share with you my approach and give you an idea of how I will plan and prepare for your wedding. My goal for each and every wedding that I DJ is to be the Best Wedding Reception that anyone has ever been to.

Everything that I do as a DJ, Emcee and Entertainment Director will be customized around you, your families and guests. I want to make sure that when we sit down to talk about your wedding that we discuss everything that you want and expect from your DJ. One of the most important aspects in hiring a professional DJ is knowing exactly who you are working with from the very beginning.

I hope that as you spend time researching this important aspect of your wedding that you expect nothing but the VERY best. As a professional DJ I am very passionate about what I do. Please know that the level of service that you will receive from me as your chosen entertainment provider, will be nothing but the best!

First and foremost, when you hire Progressive Sound Entertainment, you are guaranteed Eric Hovey as your Entertainment Director, Professional DJ and Master of Ceremonies. It is important that you know every detail that is included in your Wedding Entertainment Package and understand the level of service you will receive, from the planning stages through the end of the reception, this is YOUR day and I am committed to working WITH YOU, not for you! I have a wealth of ideas and suggestions for you to choose from that will help you custom design every detail of your reception to fit your personality, tastes, dreams and desires.

My signature service will allow us to create a wedding reception that is unique to you and your individual needs. I am not your typical wedding DJ, in that; I do not have a cookie cutter style of DJ entertainment for wedding (unlike most companies). In fact every aspect of your wedding entertainment is completely customized around your goals and ideas.

I will always show up early, put you first, and tell you the truth, keep your guests entertained, dress appropriately for the occasion, and of course have fun. If there is a song that is not in my music library, I will purchase it for your special event. I will never drink alcohol or smoke, use foul language, play music that has foul language or is demeaning to anyone. I will also never subcontract your event out to another DJ.

I recognize that you are entrusting the success of your entire Wedding reception and investment to me! I will help you create an agenda and through the planning process I will ask you a lot of questions and gather as much information as I can. The more I know about your expectations, the better I can fulfill them. Also, the information I will gather from you about your family and your guests will help me to connect with them and play music that will make them feel included as well.

When you are ready to take the next steps, I would love to hear from you and how I can help you plan a fun and entertaining wedding. Thank you for considering me as your Entertainment Director for your upcoming celebration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Describe your DJ style:
I consider myself to be an Entertainment Director, which means that you get a complete professional DJ Entertainment Experience. My Emcee skills and creating the perfect atmosphere is what sets me apart from other DJ's. I beleive that each event should be fun from the beginning to the end.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
There is not necessarily a limit, however I do recommend that you create a priority play list and a do not play list.
What is your usual attire?
Suit & Tie, but will also dress for the occasion. For example I have had several Country themed events where I will wear Cowboy Boots, Pressed Jeans, Dress Shirt and Sports Jacket
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
I prefer to purchase the song if possible. If I do not have it, I will buy it. In the event that I can not find the song, I may request that you provide me with a copy.
How many other DJs do you work with?
It is just myself, which means if you hire my company, you will get me Eric Hovey
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Everything I do is customizable, so that depends on how long you would like me to be there.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
I allow my clients between 3-5 hours of personal one one consultation time.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I can pretty much handle just about anything. I have a passion for Country Music and specifically Red Dirt Country. I also love Reggae. But for the most part I am universal and will do whatever you would like.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
I definitely recommend a "do not play list"
Do you bring your own equipment?
All of the sound equipent I bring will be customized to your needs. For example, for Ceremonies I provide a separate PA System including wireless lav mics and music playback. I can also provide multiple speaker set ups in different rooms or locations.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Uplighting has been very popular and helps with creating the atmosphere. I can also create a custom monogram projection with your initials and wedding date.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
I like to have atleast 2 hours for set up, but in some instances I may need more time depending on how many speakers and sound systems we are using. I am self contained and do not need any tables.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Not at all. However most DJ companies usually do have this which in my opinion does not fit in at a wedding.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
From introducing the wedding party, grand entrance, your first dance to the toast of the best man, I will be your personal Master of Ceremonies. Everything is tailored so that I can represent you whenever I am on the microphone in front of all your guests.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
I do travel quite a bit for weddings and the fee is based on distance and time.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
My deposit to secure the date is $500

Eric Hovey was recommended to me by my wedding coordinator, Kelli Noel and I am so happy she did. My husband and I gave a lot of freedom to Eric and he delivered! He played a great balance of old and new songs and songs nobody had heard of, but were awesome. He has great taste in music and can read a crowd very well.

I had the daunting task ahead of me....to find a DJ that could help me find music to play at my wedding. I like metal, and I knew that most of mine and my future husband's family would not appreciate that genre. I had found a business card at the venue I chose, and I decided to give Progressive Sound Entertainment a call.

I was not disappointed! Not only was the DJ absolutely wonderful to work with, he helped me pick music that worked with not only my family but also that my husband and I liked. He kept in constant contact with me, and any detail or change I had he was open and receptive, and if it didn't work he gave his honest opinion. I especially liked what he did for our reception and introducing our wedding party, even though it was a bit hard for me to write! I would highly recommend him!

Eric Hovey was a great DJ for my daughter's wedding. He was very professional and the music he played was great! Eric went above and beyond his duties of DJ by helping with cleaning up the gazebo where the wedding was to take place. They didn't clean up the night before. He was our superman! Eric set up for the ceremony and was on time! He was able to get the crowd going with a fun game, and he has the most hilarious way of introducing the bridal party. All in all I would highly recommend Eric!

Eric was the DJ for our wedding on September 1, 2013. As the reviewer before me said, a DJ can make or break a party. We wanted to make sure that we hired a DJ who could create a party atmosphere and keep it going all night. We didn't want a cheesy DJ who talks all night and plays the chicken dance (no offense to any chicken dance fans out there), we just wanted a GREAT PARTY and that is exactly what we got.

We met with Eric several times before the wedding. He gave us some great suggestions that we never would've thought of on our own, including an epic intro for our wedding party. Music was a big part of our wedding. I didn't want to use traditional ceremony music (the bridal party walked down the aisle to "Hard to Concentrate" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I walked down the aisle to "Marry Me" by Train), and he had both songs timed perfectly. We gave him a few suggestions of songs that we wanted played at the reception, and he played all of them. It was SUCH a great party.

I have nothing but positive things to say about Eric. I would absolutely refer him to anyone in search of a wedding DJ, he was awesome.

Alright, so my husband and I have been to a lot of BAD weddings in the past. Everything was usually great but it was the DJ that was terrible and ruined the party. The DJ really has the ability to "make or break" the party, so we were pretty particular about the DJ we wanted!

That being sad, ERIC IS AMAZING!! He knew how to get the party going and kept it going the WHOLE time! We wanted a dance party and that's exactly what Eric delivered. He has a great ability to read the crowd and keep people on the dance floor.

Eric met with us a couple times before, so he could get to know us better and ensure everything would go smoothly. He kept things fun and reflected our taste in music! He was well prepared and on the ball.

Eric was a great MC and kept things running smoothly. When things would come up, he would just deal with it and take care of it. He did not bother or burden us with questions or concerns the day of (as we were busy and stressed!). For example, it started to rain outside and he just took care of everything without asking. He even provided our caterer with a pop-up tent for the Hor D'oeuvres following the ceremony!

I can not recommend Eric enough. I know he may be on the pricier side as far as DJs go but he was worth every penny! I had several guests come up to me to tell me "you guys know how to throw a party!" or "That was one hell of a dance party". THANK YOU ERIC!

I was very impressed with Eric professionalism and creativity. He's high energy and entertainment without being a typical cheesy DJ. He provided the perfect soundtrack for the day from the ceremony all the way through dinner until the late reception. There were also so many unique ideas he had, especially wedding party entrance and the love story of us he put together...and definitely get the lights - worth every penny if you want to party!

Eric was a huge success at my wedding. I received numerous compliments on him and the job he did at my wedding! He was great! He was extremely professional and had the right balance between getting guests involved and allowing the party to happen. I would highly recommend him. I never waited to hear back from him when I had a question and he was very interested in meeting with us multiple times prior to the wedding to be sure we were all on the same page. I wouldn't consider anyone else for my future parties!

Eric Hovey of Progressive Sounds was the first vendor I chose, and that was after many other interviews. What stood out to me was Eric's calm demenor and professionalism. Eric was slightly higher priced than some of the other local DJ's, but its the extra attention to detail that won me over. Eric met with us 4 times in person (2 of the times were at the Brown Palace so Eric could see the rooms), Eric was the Master of Ceremonies and he took that role very seriously, and Eric had an optional inclusion called the Love Story. The purpose of the Love Story is that the bride and groom, each individually, provide Eric with a very descriptive narrative from when they first met each other to the day of the wedding. Eric combines that text, has the bride and groom sit in director chairs, and read this story to the guests. It took about 20 minutes and was so weel received. Eric played only the appropriate and chosen music that we asked for. He is the total package.
