Eric was amazing. We had a very mixed crowd of older Family / Parents / Kids and our younger rowdy friends, so it could have been difficult to get everyone dancing, but Eric nailed it right from the start. Everyone was dancing from his first song, parents, aunts, uncles and friends were all up and on the dance floor.
Even when we had a freak rain storm blow through Eric just kept at it with an umbrella over his head, some light hearted jokes on the mic and "Blame it on the rain" on the speakers. From 5:00pm to 12:30am there wasn't a poor choice of song. A truly excellent DJ who knows his craft.

Eric thoroughly exceeded all expectations as the DJ at our wedding. He was able to quickly move his entire ceremony setup inside on the turn of a dime when the rain came. He supported the speeches with crafty musical interludes. He maintained a great fun atmosphere through the afternoon and into the evening, keeping the dance floor full all night. Thanks again Eric!

Our dance floor was packed from start to finish of the dance. Our guests had a phenomenal time and we received many compliments regarding our DJ and dance.

We were very impressed with our DJ Jason. Coming from an out of town location he really took charge and made sure all our needs were adressed even when we were less than organised.

Many guests said it was the best cocktail and dinner music they had heard ever at a wedding, creating a relaxing and light atmosphere.....until the lights went down and then he cranked it up just right!

Jason handled all the requests thrown his way with ease and kept the dance for full, even my husband's 101 yer old Granma took part.

Thanks Jason for making our wedding day extra special!

Eric was the DJ at our wedding. Overall, I'd say he was very responsive and showed good attention to detail.
He was always quick to respond to phone calls and e-mails, and was accommodating re: our meeting location on the two occasions we met prior to the wedding.
He seemed very aware of the occasion and the type of crowd in his music choices, and I guess his instincts were right since there were always people on the dance floor.
I sent him a list of requests, and he played many of them. He found all the *special* songs I mentioned, including a last minute request he had to download on his iPhone at the reception, and an obscure title. Plus I noticed he found an instrumental version of our first dance song that he played during the cake cutting -- which was a nice touch.

Eric was great! Dance floor was packed for the whole wedding. Was able to accomidate a projector and screen last minute and agreed to play an hour later when the party was wasn't ready to stop. He kept us informed throughout the wedding while not being a distraction. Had a perfect volume level for dancing yet being able to talk off the dance floor.

We were very impressed how Mary played what we wanted to listen to (mainly country music) and still added a good mix of songs that kept the dance floor going. We had a lot of good comments from our guests that they really enjoyed the music. The price was very reasonable for 8 hours of music and worth every penny. I highly recommend this company for your wedding.

Eric is outstanding! His attention to detail really sets him apart. We had a wide range of age groups in attendance at our reception and he kept the dancefloor full or mostly full all night. Eric is particularly good at reading a crowd and playing to the prevailing mood. He was consistently professional and polite both with us (the couple) and with all our guests. He is everything that a wedding DJ should be!

I was quite irritated with his unprofessional appearance. He was unshaven every time I met him, even at the wedding. His form gave me an option of what we wanted him to wear. I checked off suit and he showed up in the same outfit he met us with.. a dressier shirt and pants. He requested music that we liked, we burned a cd for him and then he played his own wedding set list which included songs we didn't want and had specified that way. If you're not going to respond and respect what your customers request, then don't give them the options. As a DJ though, he did a great job.. kept the party going well.

Eric had everything set up and ready to go, played the songs that I had pre-requested with him, and played excellent music. The only area that he did not do well in was responding to the requests of my guests. He told my maid of honor that he didn't have a song she had requested, then later told her he had it but she'd have to wait about 6 more songs. At that time, no one was dancing to the songs he was playing. She came to me and complained and I went and asked him to play it. He was extremely frustrated and said that he was trying to get someone besides the kids up dancing. I am a little disappointed that he wasn't aware of the fact that the kids (they were in their twenties) were a very important part of my wedding and the adults were quite happy sitting and talking as they hadn't seen each other for quite some time. I would suggest that he have a list for people to enter song requests on, so that they can see who else has requested, and don't get upset if he doesn't play theirs right away.

We were not satisfied with Eric's services for our wedding at all. He messed up our slideshow completely, which I put a lot of energy and effort into, the projector was very blurry, the images were very distorted, the songs were not ready to go, I had to stop the slideshow and wait for him to be ready to play the next song. He played the recessional for our ceremony in the middle of our ceremony and some other random song before that, I shouldn't have had to shout NOT NOW in the middle of my ceremony. And our first dance, the staff from the venue said we could signal him when we were ready, we were going to have a family member announce it for us, but he didn't wait for a signal, he just started playing the song, no intro at all, no chance for us to queue our family member. I had to think on my toes and very quickly scream, this is our first dance everyone!! And then the same thing for the father/daughter mother/son song, the song started playing, we had no chance to inform our parents that was the song we wished to dance with them to, and everyone said that the bride shouldn't have had to invite them to dance, there should have been an announcement. There was no dance floor lighting as promised, there was no microphone for speeches or for the ceremony, as promised, he played only oldies from the list of most requested, it was not a blend of pop, rock, and every other genre we enjoy, and requested.

But I think the part I am most upset about is that he took 40 minutes of time I should have been enjoying with my guests during the reception to chat about details we'd already covered extensively in phone calls and email, and he still got everything wrong. It would have been so much better to have an ipod playing in the background for our wedding and ask a friend to press play for key songs at key moments, but we didn't want them to have the pressure of getting it right, so we decided to hire a DJ who'd be paid to get it right. Everyone commented that they'd been to weddings with good and bad dj's before and that Eric was by far 10 times worse then any bad dj they'd experienced before. That is not the experience I expected at all seeing how prepared he was for our consultation, how attentive he appeared, the information he had ready for us, how much communication we had before the wedding. He also did not dress professionally. We selected suit or tux on our form, he wore a very semi casual dress shirt.
