Sugartown Industries is a mobile DJ company based in Philadelphia & NYC. We love parties, music and a full dance floor. We make the following pledge to you:

• We dig deep into our extensive music collection to keep every event fresh and fun. We play a variety of genres, from mainstream dance and hip hop to rarities and obscure nuggets.
• We are not the typical wedding variety DJs. We are passionate about the job we do and we’re knowledgeable without being pretentious.
• We work closely with our clients to create the memorable night they envision; from matching them with the DJ that best suits their event, providing the equipment needed and helping them achieve a night that flows well with maximum dance floor action.
• We understand that your event is about the CLIENT, their guests & the music, not US.
• We spin music that is different and creative yet accessible.
• We never use wacky lights, smoke machines or hang banners at any event.

• We never play line dances or the standard boring wedding or party fare.

• We dress like guests at an elegant party.

• We emcee each party more minimally than the average wedding DJ. We are more subtle and decidedly low-key. * We are (subcontracted) professionals that steadfastly believe in the Sugartown vision & aesthetic.

We’d love to be a part of your event. Please contact us for rate information and specifics. Read less

Tony from Sugartown Industries was awesome! My fiancee and I really enjoyed our meetings and chats with him about the music and felt totally confident that he would do a great job at our wedding. I'm happy to report that he exceeded all of our expectations. We received so many compliments during and after our wedding about how great the music was and would recommend him without reservation to anyone.

I just wrote the following e-mail to DJ Dave Fischoff and Sugartown for Dave's work at my wedding on 10/5/13 in Lake George, NY. He was incredible!

"I want to thank you so much for an incredible experience. You win the prize for the vendor that the most people raved about all weekend. My father has been going on and on about the DJ for 36 hours. Thank you so much for making the long trip.

You were incredibly discreet and classy while also getting people to do what they were supposed to do, when they were supposed to do it! I knew you were always on top of it.

Most importantly, I have never seen more people of all generations dancing for such a long time. You picked perfect songs. I have seen my parents dance one other time in my life and even they were out on the floor.

I am thrilled we went with you and Sugartown."

Music was one of the top priorities for our wedding so I researched quite a few DJs before contacting Colleen at Sugartown. I was super optimistic that Sugartown would deliver an amazing night though not only because of the reviews but because of the website. When I read through their OWN "do not play list" I said, "Done."

Thankfully though, I wasn't done. Colleen was awesome and very prompt/responsive with emails which was extremely helpful. But meeting with our DJ, Tony, is what really sealed the deal for us. Right away his personality and vibe put us completely at ease. He's very down to earth and calming, which is exactly what I wanted to surround myself on my wedding day. But more importantly, when I told him my favorite band, he told me they are one of his favorites too! At that point in the meeting I said, "Done!" However, my husband-to-be wanted to talk more about the music and vision for the night and after the full meeting he was as blown away as I was. It literally was the perfect fit.

So both of our families are really into dancing and partying. Let me tell you, the dance floor was packed! I cannot tell you how many people have told us our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to, and Tony is a huge reason why. He played everything we wanted and more. I've already recommended them to some friends and the wedding was a week ago! I would recommend Tony and Sugartown to anyone who wants "the best wedding ever". DONE!

Sugartown Industries was a joy to work with. Colleen managed the whole process beautifully. She was great at communicating with me and giving me details when I needed them (something that was problem with other DJs). We had Taro as our DJ and he was wonderful! We were concerned because we had tons of musicians of all kinds in our pool of guests as well as people from all walks of life with very different musical tastes. Taro was wonderful at finding ways to please everyone. Many people commented on how great the music was. He set the mood for every part of the wedding and it ended in a fantastic dance party that included everyone from our elderly guests to the teenagers. We couldn't have been happier.

DJ Colleen Crumbcake rocked our wedding. Our dance floor was packed from start to finish. She created a reception specific to our musical taste and vision while also reading the crowd. All our requests were met and each song was a hit. From our parents, to our ring bearer to even our pregnant friends, EVERYONE danced the night away. We couldn't recommend her more highly.

DJ Dustin was awesome! He was very easy to talk to and very responsive in our correspondence. Dustin offered helpful suggestions with the order of the playlist and moments that we really didn't think about (cake cutting). He was an awesome DJ and I would highly recommend him. Our guests had a great time at our wedding and we had several people come up to us at the end of the night saying that they loved the playlist.
DJ Colleen Crumbcake was so helpful in setting up our meetings with Dustin and was even present during the setup of our ceremony and stayed to help coordinate the bridal party entrance and exit. She was extremely helpful during the planning phase and responded very promptly to my emails. She was extremely professional and approachable. Thanks Sugartown Industries! :)

Sugartown is a great company. My two sisters and I all used different DJs from their company for our weddings, and we were all super pleased with the job they did. Wells Crandell dj'd our wedding this June, and he did an excellent job. We spoke to him on the phone twice before our wedding, and then several times over email the couple of weeks before. He was always super responsive and resourceful, including sourcing obscure ethnic songs to appease my melange of a family. Booking a DJ is always nerve-wracking unless you have heard them play before, because they can make or break a wedding. Wells definitely amplified our wedding experience. He did a great job of mixing in our favorites with older tunes for older folks and was super flexible during the whole time. Can't recommend him enough!

DJ Wells from Sugartown Industries was our wedding DJ and he was awesome in every way. We had an opportunity to meet with him in person two times so we could feel comfortable about every last detail of the wedding. Sugartown Industries has a giant list of songs and artists that we went through so Wells knew exactly what we liked and didn’t like. This made for an incredible playlist not only of artists we specifically mentioned to him, but artists that fit the genres we liked best. He did an amazing job keeping people young and old on the dance floor by changing the type of music as needed, he really had a good feel for the crowd. After the wedding, he even sent along the complete playlist from the cocktail hour and reception so we could enjoy it for years to come. We highly recommend DJ Wells and Sugartown Industries!

I had Taro as my DJ from Sugartown, If I could rate him on his own, I'd give him 10 stars. He was on point with everything! When I was deciding on a DJ (which is prob the most difficult task when planning your wedding bc there isn't anything you can hear to just "know") I asked my friends on facebook for recommendations and two of the responses were for Sugartown, and the friends and I were like-minded in our music choices. I called, Colleen put Taro as our DJ. From the first conversation, its obvious he knows his stuff, has a broad spectrum of knowledge and he has this great soft voice so you know you aren't getting that " cheesy wedding dj" you fear of. Taro asked us a zillion questions and really was thorough and detail oriented planning the music out for our ceremony and reception. He seemed to genuinely care, there was no rushing which really put me at ease.
I especially loved that he and Sugartown had this list of song recommendations which made choosing ours a lot easier. At the wedding, Taro was awesome!! Taro knew exactly what to play to keep everyone on the dance floor that at the end of the night, the floors were shaking from everyone dancing and singing to the music. You know its a good party when the floors are moving :)
My only gripe *which really isn't that big of a deal, was that we had to go through Colleen for everything, I would've preferred to just directly reach out to Taro myself but I think that was just her system. Just got a little frustrating because twice she thought we were with another DJ and the final payment meet up got a little convoluted because she wasn't able to decide on where to meet me. But when I met her, I did think Colleen was a very sweet woman, it just seemed like she was so busy with work that she wasn't able to remember things. But Taro was always on board with our schedule so it all worked out perfectly at the end. Thanks Taro and Colleen, you made my wedding night so much fun!

DJ Dave provided the perfect soundtrack to our wedding. He had 3 generations on the dance floor, including my teenaged cousins - no small feat. My wife had never seen her parents dance before but Dave's music selection even coaxed them into the fray.

The foundation for this success started during the planning process, with Colleen from Sugartown matching us with Dave and outlining a series of exercises and conversations to help us identify and communicate our musical expectations. Conversations with Dave were comfortable, yet professional and we always left the conversations feeling both that we had a better idea of what we wanted and that Dave understood what we were looking for.

Both Colleen and Dave were extremely responsive throughout the process, responding to emails quickly. Dave even helped us scout out additional audio equipment from a 3rd party to meet a late-breaking venue requirement.

All told, we received lots and lots of positive feedback from our guests about the music and would HIGHLY recommend DJ Dave to other couples looking for a thoughtful DJ, who will help you align on your musical tastes, and can incorporate everything from motown to indie music into their event.

When my fiance and I were planning our wedding, we kept thinking the same thing: "We don't want a lame party." We wanted it to be fun, and we wanted our friends and family to enjoy themselves-- without being obligated to participate in the Electric Slide, Macarena, or a conga line. Picking the right DJ was thus extremely important to us. We reached out to Sugartown Industries because they were all about good music, and they expressly avoid cringeworthy, cliched wedding songs. We wanted familiar classics and cult hits, mixed with modern pop, rock, and hip-hop (with just a smattering of up-and-coming bands for good measure).

For our event, we were set up with DJ Taro. We met him twice before the wedding and were in regular contact via email to manage the process. The first time we met, he got an initial sense of how the timeline of the wedding would work and how the equipment would be setup at the venue. He gave us some homework to figure out what music we would both be happy with (super important). We then met him once more a few weeks prior to the big day to review all the details, as well as our choices of favorite songs and bands. He took care of the rest.

We couldn’t be happier with how the music turned out; Taro fit in all of our requests and did a great job at getting everyone out on the dance floor. We've heard from many of our friends that it was the most fun wedding they had been to. Taro delivered a top-notch vibe for a fun wedding, with excellent professionalism throughout. We highly recommend Sugartown to anyone looking for unique, atypical wedding music!

We used DJ Tevis from Sugartown for our March wedding. She was so nice and bot she and Colleen were great to work with. We gave her a list of songs we wanted to hear at the wedding. She worked them in fantastically with some additional songs we hadn't thought of and kept the dance floor full all night. I don't think I left the dance floor once. After the wedding, everyone told us how much they loved the music. Would highly recommend Tevis and Sugartown.

Colleen from Sugartown Industries was the DJ at my February wedding and I don't think my husband & I could've picked anyone better for it. Not only is she an awesome lady who made us laugh & feel comfortable, she knows her stuff. Just going through Sugartown's song lists had us singing! When we suggested some lesser known songs (that are favorites to the 2 of us), Colleen found ways to incorporate them without making it obvious or having our guests go "Wait, wtf is this?". She kept the party going to the very end, making sure the music matched the guests (more mainstream & oldies when it was crowded, more of our personal tastes as the night slowed down & mostly friends were left). You can't not love a DJ that plays both "Ignition (Remix)" and "You're No Rock & Roll Fun" in the same night both happily and without question.

Colleen was wonderful! From the very beginning, we knew we were getting more than just a DJ when we hired her. Colleen is also very experienced in planning out the timing of wedding receptions. She offered lots of advice on planning the order of our reception so that we could get our food out early and maximize our dance party time - our two priorities. She was also so organized and played all of the music we wanted to hear. And finally, our dance floor was PACKED with people of all ages all night. People keep telling us that our wedding was one of the best, if not the best, wedding they've ever been to, and it's largely due to Colleen's ability to plan an excellent party. Thanks Colleen!

We literally searched for "Non Cheesy" DJ for our wedding and luckily found Sugartown Industries, who came through with excellent NON-CHEESEBALL music as promised. Colleen was very responsive from the beginning, promptly helping to arrange a meeting with our DJ. We had DJ Wells for our wedding, and we were 100% satisfied with everything – from our meetings to the actual wedding. He was very accommodating to our requests.

We literally searched for "Non Cheesy" DJ for our wedding and luckily found Sugartown Industries, who came through with excellent NON-CHEESEBALL music as promised. Colleen was very responsive from the beginning, promptly helping to arrange a meeting with our DJ. We had DJ Wells for our wedding, and we were 100% satisfied with everything – from our meetings to the actual wedding. He was very accommodating to our requests.

When it came to the point in our wedding planning that we had to choose a DJ, we started to become very apprehensive that no one would be able to channel our eclectic music taste, as well as pull it all together so that our guests would all be out of their seats and partying. Taro of Sugartown Industries did just this! Upon meeting him, we immediately felt very comfortable. Greeting us with a great smile and classy style, we were sold as soon as he began to talk to us about our big day and how he is focused on creating a classy party atmosphere that adults and young adults could appreciate alike. Sugartown Industries has a seemingly flawless method of channeling just what you want played and balancing that out with the needs of the guests. It is with nothing but the finest expertise that Taro was able to slip from Indie, to current pop, to solid gold and motown without losing one person from the dance floor. His taste is impeccable and he was graceful, elegant, and appropriate on the microphone whenever it came time for him to make an announcement. Throughout the night, our guests kept asking us where we found such a great dj that knows it all without having to rely on top 20 current hits. We are so thankful for Taro and Sugartown Industries for making our wedding a hit. There is no doubt that we would not be "the most fun wedding" our friends have been to if he were not there. Dealing with Colleen of Sugartown Industries was also a pleasure as she helped to set up our meetings and catered to every question and quandary that we had in a timely fashion. We would recommend Sugartown to our closest friends in a heart beat. We really cannot say enough great things about them! THANK YOU TARO AND SUGARTOWN!!

My husband and I met with DJ Colleen Crumbcake at one of our favorite bars in Philadelphia. Colleen was so great. She's easy to get along with, gave great advice, and put together an amazing soundtrack based on some of our requests and some that she inputted based on our style. We were approached by SO many people the day of the wedding and after the wedding complimenting the music. We had a nice size dancefloor - not too big, not too small, but it was crammed (in a good way) because everyone was up dancing. She really knows how to keep the party moving. After the wedding she sent us a thank you card which was truly nice. We loved working with her and would recommend Sugartown to anyone looking for a DJ who knows their stuff :)

We've heard so many stories of friends who had or attended weddings in which the DJ ignored the couple's advance music requests or played only music that is perhaps trendy but not what the crowd is into. Colleen was very collaborative as we planned our wedding -- asking for must-have songs and asking about the flow of the evening so we wouldn't miss our favorites while taking photos, etc. The music was outstanding and we were able to enjoy so many of the songs we wanted to hear. Our guests kept telling us how much they loved our DJ. We could not have made a better choice.

DJ Taro provided the music at our wedding in August and both we and our guests are still raving about how amazing the music was. Everything about working with Sugartown Industries and with Taro was fantastic right from the start. Before we had even booked anything, Taro spent about an hour sitting with us face to face to go over our musical preferences and how we wanted the evening to go. He is so organized, easy to work with, responsive and really listens to your preferences. He also really understands the balance of trying to keep all generations on the dance floor but without playing any tired cheesy wedding music. He also seamlessly integrated a number of Hindi songs into the party. We had felt really confident after meeting with Taro that the music at our wedding would be awesome but he way exceeded our expectations. Thanks Taro & Colleen at Sugartown for everything!!

We got DJ Taro for our wedding and we couldn't have been happier! As most couples know, the planning process is grueling but our experience with Colleen and Taro was nothing short of wonderful! Walking away from our meeting with Taro, we agreed that music was the ONE THING we had no concerns about. He completely "got" us from the start. We loved his music recommendations - they were perfect. My husband and I are not music snobs, but we're definitely not Top 40 people either. We wanted "our" music, which can be a bit obscure to some, but we wanted people to get into the groove at the same time and not "sit it out" because it was unfamiliar. A good tip: guests want familiar. Taro understood that and crafted a playlist that perfectly reflected our taste but didn't alienate our guests. The dance party raged on and by the end of the night, so many of our guests asked me if we could get them the soundtrack to our wedding. Also, Taro's manner is not showboat-y; he emceed it in an understated way, keeping the party going and without hollering out to the crowd every other song. He took requests and even came to find me on the dance floor to run a request made by my mom that was on our "do not play" list. He also downloaded songs right on the spot upon request! Prior to the wedding, I explained to friends that our wedding wasn't going to sound like any wedding they've ever been to before, but it's still going to sound like a wedding. Taro delivered in droves!

I am not really into dancing, but I am almost certain I could have been a serious contender on "Dancing with the Stars" at my wedding reception.

Thanks due to Wells Crandall of Sugartown Industries - an amazingly talented, down to earth DJ who would likely sooner face plant into your wedding cake than play "The Chicken Dance" at your reception.

My husband and I met with Wells three times before the wedding to plan the ultimate playlist. These meetings were relaxed and fun, as Wells has a cool demeanor that makes meeting with him seem like an old friend. The genius of Wells is that he quickly picks up on the crowd's tastes, and incorporates a variety of music that is both popular and fun. No song is played in duration (unless the crowd is raging), and the variety and lack of slow songs keeps things moving.

In an unwieldy testament of the awesome music, my guests did the following (amazing!) things:
- A double dutch dance with an invisible jumprope
- Lots of (literally) ass-busting breakdancing
- A human train that weaved throughout The W hotel
- Shattered many a glass on the dance floor ( yeah, we know how to party)
- Refused to leave! As the clock struck midnight, we demanded one more song ... and our wish was granted.

If it were socially acceptable, I would build a tiny musical shrine of old CDs dedicated to the fabulousness that is Sugartown Industries. Instead, I will make due with the playlist Wells provided after the wedding, which I listen to often to remind me of what a great event.

I knew that I wanted a DJ who wouldn't play anything cheesy and would have a good idea of our musical taste. We first met with Colleen a little more than a year before our wedding and then again about a month before. She is super friendly and helpful and responded quickly to my e-mails. She did such a great job at the wedding, playing all of our requested songs and so many more fun songs. She really played a great mix and helped make our wedding an awesome night. I would definitely recommend Sugartown Industries!

Dave was incredible! Everyone danced the whole time, which was our ultimate goal. In fact, they wanted more at the end and chanted "One more song! One more song!" Dave sat down with my husband and I and went over all the music we wanted and hated. He made suggestions. Best of all he is a really nice guy. Colleen was very nice to work with as well. We only had contact with her through email and later met her at another friend's wedding. She did a great job too. I believe that all of my friends who have gotten married in the New York City area have used Sugartown Industries. Love them!

We found Wells via Colleen, who had DJ'ed my brother's wedding. We asked if she knew any wedding DJs who could speak both French and English -- and she recommended Wells. And he was perfect.

During our first meeting, we explained that we are a Franco-American couple and that our families would be meeting for the first time at the wedding. We had three goals with the music:
*We very much wanted the the reception to feel integrated, not have two separate groups doing their own thing, and felt strongly that it would be the music (and secondarily the seating) that would facilitate this.
*We thought we could make the French side to feel included even as we were following American traditions (ie - first dance, cake cutting etc) by having our DJ could introduce each custom in French as well as English.
*We wanted everybody to dance and have fun!

Wells and his assistant Tara exceeded expectations.

First he's a good listener. He got what we were trying to do and created a blended French/ American playlist that kept people on the dancefloor all night long. Second, he loves music and was enthusiastic about doing a different kind of wedding. The French playlist was to die for - he really did his research.

Everybody danced, everybody mingled, and many people (both American and French) told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. So many people commented on the music specifically. The tunes and tone went so well that even some guests thought he was one of our friends!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Wells and Tara for everything!!

She also threw in some surprises just for us, which was an amazing touch on our day. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I was going to write that contracting with Sugartown Industries was the best decision I made about my wedding, but need to edit that- deciding to marry my groom was the best decision, but Sugartown was the second-best! Seriously, I cannot recommend them enough. We chose Sugartown based on an internet search for non-cheesy wedding DJs in the NY metro area. I have been to enough weddings with cheesy, overbearing DJs, playing the same twenty songs, and we knew we wanted something a little different for our wedding. Our DJ was Mona Dehghan and from the first time we Skyped with her, we absolutely loved her. I was pretty intimidated at first because she has lots of music cred, and we have pretty mainstream taste in music. But, she was so sweet and funny and nice. What really sold me was when we told her that we wanted our wedding to just be a big dance party and she said that she wanted everyone to just have the feeling of elation all night long. That was the perfect way to sum up how we wanted the reception, too. She was really respectful of our mainstream tastes and selections and gave us some great options for different special songs. During the reception itself, Mona was absolutely amazing. She totally got our vision and our family and friends and had everyone on the dance floor all night. It was amazing to see the generations and some very disparate groups of friends and families mixing it up on the dance floor- literally all night. She managed my sometimes overbearing family's requests so well- at one point the Irish side kept requesting Irish songs and the Italian side said something- so she played the Tarantela. It was really funny and fun- and perfectly timed. I literally cannot say enough about Mona, she was the best DJ I could possibly imagine- she read the crowd perfectly, she incorporated all of our ten "must play" songs seamlessly, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a wedding DJ that is not "typical" and cheesy but fun, classy, and energ

We LOVED Dave Fischoff! He was so great, he played everything we requested from the more underground indie stuff to fun dance music. If you are not looking for "wedding music" I highly recommend this company.
We were very specific in what songs and bands we wanted and he listened and played exactly what we wanted and more! He was such a nice guy and had a nice "non-announced" voice that we loved. I recommend him and the entire Popshop dj squad to everyone!

We could not have asked for a better wedding DJ than Colleen of Sugartown Industries. From the moment we first sat down with her, we knew she was going to be easy to work with, responsive, and extremely capable. She turned out to be all of those things and more! During our planning stages, Colleen provided a ton of great music suggestions for everything from ceremony and dinner music to first dance and parent dances. She was always available either by phone, over email, or in person to answer any questions that we had. We felt totally comfortable going into our wedding that she was going to do a great job-- and she definitely did. The flow of the evening was perfect, mostly due to her suggestions. She kept a low profile the entire time, gently "guiding" guests from one part of the evening to another but never monopolizing the microphone or coming across as a typical "wedding DJ." And the dance party portion of the reception was amazing! She covered everything we had requested while also throwing in some great choices of her own, which we loved. Our music selections really ran a range of old/new, pop/alternative, fast/slow, and Colleen did a fantastic job working everything together so it flowed perfectly. We're still hearing from guests both old and young about how great the music was. Even the girl manning our gelato station was rocking out as she scooped! We're so happy we chose Colleen as our DJ and could not be more pleased with her work. We highly, highly recommend her!

she was super awesome to work with the whole time, (even sent me a christmas card, i mean, thats just nice). it as a tricky wedding to dj as we neeed her to play greek music, social dance music to please the older folk, indian bhangra music, salsa (for my friends), hip hop/ contemporary.

so it as a huge mish mosh and I think that was difficult to deal with but she did a great job. the only thing I would recommend is to really think about how you want your music played when you meet with her and take the time to do this. For example, I wish that I had asked for a specific song after the first dance, or rather than give her 6 indian songs and her deciding which 3....I should have just told her the 3 I wanted her to play. She actually asked and was trying to push us for all this info, but I just figured it would work itself out and I think that since you're paying all that money, you SHOULD take the time to think about it and give her the preferences so she can make you as happy as possible.

great Dj though, great job! She was extremely professional throughout. popshop does NOT play any cheesy music which was what we wantd (no hustle, hokey pokey, etc).

she was super awesome to work with the whole time, (even sent me a christmas card, i mean, thats just nice). it as a tricky wedding to dj as we neeed her to play greek music, social dance music to please the older folk, indian bhangra music, salsa (for my friends), hip hop/ contemporary.

so it as a huge mish mosh and I think that was difficult to deal with but she did a great job. the only thing I would recommend is to really think about how you want your music played when you meet with her and take the time to do this. For example, I wish that I had asked for a specific song after the first dance, or rather than give her 6 indian songs and her deciding which 3....I should have just told her the 3 I wanted her to play. She actually asked and was trying to push us for all this info, but I just figured it would work itself out and I think that since you're paying all that money, you SHOULD take the time to think about it and give her the preferences so she can make you as happy as possible.

Our DJ Dave was amazing! Thank you so much for making our wedding day memorable. Dave was very receptive to our needs, and requests. The evening flowed perfectly thanks to Dave's help. We had our wedding at Bubby's, so since he had done other events there before, he was very helpful in assisting me with my timeline. Emails and phone calls were returned in a timely fashion and the prices were extremely reasonable. The entire experience was pleasant and professional. Thank You to Colleen and Dave!

Pop Shop was great to work with. Colleen was very responsive, proactive & professional. Eric was my DJ. He's very friendly & flexible. We met with him initially to go through our vision and shortly before the wedding to go over the final details. Being that he's been to many weddings I appreciated getting his advice on how things should flow. On the day of the wedding, my family ended up dominating the dance floor. I didn't anticipate this but am very grateful to Eric & his assistant for changing things around & being able to find songs that kept them on the dance floor. If you want to work with a professional DJ company that knows all types of different types of music, Pop Shop is for you.

My husband and I were not really the wedding types and were fairly difficult through the planning process. While our parents wanted us to have a big, traditional affair, we wanted to keep things on the smaller side without the typical wedding hooplah. Initially, people were confused and hesitant when they heard we were using a DJ for our wedding. Our parents begged us to go the more traditional route of having a band, but we resisted. Needless to say, Colleen proved everyone wrong! Guests raved about the wide array of great music played - how appealing it was to everyone, both young and old. From the start, Colleen understood what we were looking for. From knowing our tastes, she was able to select songs that both our guests and we would enjoy. Colleen understood that neither of us liked being the center of attention and helped us get through typical wedding traditions in the least cheesy, most comfortable way possible. Colleen was easy to deal with throughout the whole process, and was extremely professional and accommodating! The dance floor was packed the entire night, and we have Colleen to thank for making our wedding so fun! I highly recommend Colleen for your big day!

Taro Baugham of popshop! djs is an original. The collection of vinyl he transported all the way to Yonkers had to be a fraction of what he owns and it was impressive in its own right. He had everyone wishing it was dance time from the moment the speakers turned on during cocktail hour. He was faithful to our must and do-not playlists and was dressed to impress. His manager, possibly the owner of popshop!, Colleen acted as the point person for us and was very accessible over email. Popshop's professionalism and service makes it easy for us to recommend them on wedding wire.

Our DJ was Erik of PopShop DJs,

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Erik. He was super accommodating, friendly, fun and was the perfect DJ for our wedding dance party. Erik came highly recommended from the Indie Bride blogs, and I am so glad that he had our day available! We were on a very tight budget, and he worked with us to come up with a rate that was within our reach, and charged us at cost for his transportation out to Long Island (he is based in Brooklyn.)

We were considering doing an iPod DJ package with another DJ company - but when they stopped returning our calls within 3 months of the wedding, Erik saved the day! His rate was really reasonable - compared with other DJS we looked into (DJ GAZA for one) he was nearly half the price - and completely lived up to our high expectations.

We met with Erik twice prior to the wedding and we found him very professional and easy to talk to. Our friends really LOVE dancing, and I knew that we would need to somehow evenly balance the night between the Baby Boomer crowd (my parents friends) and our friends who get down to old-school hip hop, Janet Jackson, cheesy 90s tunes, etc. Erik completely “got it” and worked with us to create a perfect mix of 90s hip hop, 80s stuff everyone can dance to (but nothing cheesy – no “What I Like About You” or “Macarena” at our request.) The dinner hour was picture perfect - a combination of Bob Dylan, Fleet Foxes, the Shins, Edward Sharp, Paul Simon. I felt with other DJs that I met, that they would fight me on my choices. They would always seem to work in a "big band" section, or a "grease lightning" medley into the song choices they would suggest. When I said PLEASE NO LADY GAGA other DJs would say “yeah, but everyone is going to want to hear that, and you want people to dance, don’t you??" – instead Erik said “It's OK, there are millions of other songs we can play, so you don’t have to hear Gaga on your big day if you don't want to.”

From the second Erik started spinning – by the time salad was on the table, my friends were ready to dance. And, Erik met the challenge. He also handled our introduction announcement with grace. There were no “jock jams” being played – instead Erik completely respected our wishes for a low key entrance and made only about three announcements all night – which was just what we asked him to do.

He was great in working with our music and song list.

I highly recommend Erik Karff for your big day. He is the perfect DJ, really nice and fun to work with. Thanks Erik!!

Dave from popshop! was AMAZING. I realize I'm biased, but our wedding was the best dance party I have ever been to and that's all on Dave. Our meetings with him were incredibly helpful as far as organizing the flow of the night and he killed it with the great songs during the actual wedding. His only tiny misstep came during the ceremony, when he played the groom's entrance song as the officiant came down the aisle. It was totally not a big deal and he more than made up for it with the awesomeness of the dance party.

popshop DJ's wasn't one of the cheaper DJ's we looked at, but we made the decision that this was the one part of the wedding we didn't want to cut corners with. We wanted to avoid the typical wedding/bar mitzvah MC type DJ and too many of the shops we spoke with tried to push their smoke machine style productions. The others seemed the opposite extreme pushing certain specific genres of music. popshop on the other hand seemed flexible to work with us (as long as we didn't request line dances and kc and the sunshine band). After asking us a series of extensive questions about our tastes, they paired us up with one of their DJ's they thought would be a good match, Travis Harrison. Travis met with us twice to go through the kinds of music we wanted and how to pace the evening. He talked us into and out of a few things based on his experience, but also worked with a few specific ideas that we had. At the end of the day, we had the kind of music we wanted, some of which was very specific to our individual tastes, but it didn't have to come at the cost of the enjoyment of the rest of our guests. Travis did a great balancing act, and did so with professionalism and no over the top kitsch.

Highly recommend popshop DJ. From the first conversation I had with Dave Fischoff (he works with Coleen at popshop DJ) till the last moment of the wedding, Dave was professional, insightful, attentive and always focused on delivering his best. He guided us through the event planning by asking us early on what music we want to play throughout the event. He made great suggestions and was very knowledgeable about music and party making. Thanks to Dave's specific questions and his experience, we were able to focus on planning many details early on. In some ways, I thought of Dave as the wedding planner advisor. We had a crazy dance party till 1am (we stayed as long as we could at our venue). Everyone was on the dance floor going wild. My friends continue to tell us that they haven't danced like that in a long time and that our wedding was the best and most fun one they have been at. In a large part, that is thanks to Dave. He made the whole event flow smoothly and without any issues. He played great music and he also looked good! popshop DJ is very professional organization and Coleen runs it effectively by taking care of the coordination and contract signing. It was a pleasure working with Dave and Coleen I highly recommend popshop DJ.

Popshop is GREAT for brides and grooms who want fabulous music that is not so "traditional wedding" music- with a dj that give the excitement and fun a wedding deserves!

I found out about popshop from reading another review and upon emailing Colleen, she got in touch with us immediately and asked us questions about our musical taste so that she could put us in touch with a dj that would reflect the genre and style that is similar to ours (unfortunately she, herself was not available). Within days we were introduced to Travis who turned out to be JUST what we needed at our wedding to keep everyone up and having fun! We met with him to discuss our needs, songs that were on our "must play" list and to go over general logistical needs. He was great and did not have a pre set list of songs to play but really played music based on the mood of the crowd. So many other djs we interviewed were all about being in the business so long and basically setting up computers or cd players to take care of the night. While we talked with Travis about what we wanted, he did his homework to find the amazing songs that would reflect the feeling, the mood, and some artists that we wanted to hear.

My feet were KILLING me by the end of the night - because of all the dancing!

Travis was really great and even mixed a bit during dinner, he understood the flow of the evening and really got our oldest of relatives and even those ... young at heart up and dancing!

Colleen runs with a great group of djs- their website speaks for itself and the service is great!

Colleen is the only DJ we met with, partly because we got so excited by her 12-pg PDF of all the songs she will and won't play (http://www.popshopdjs.com/music.html). We felt we were on the same page right away, and loved her music knowledge (although she doesn't come off as a music snob), her personality and the mixes she put together on her radio show ( http://www.eastvillageradio.com/modules.php?name=evrshow& ;showid=76). I loved that she asked for the mix of ages of the guests so she knew what she was working with, and that she has a policy to not leave the booth unattended (we were worried about some drunk friends/relatives getting a hold of the mic). Nobody got off the dance floor the entire night! One of our friends leaned over at the end of the night and said "Best DJ ever" while many others kept commenting us on our playlist. Of course, we gave the credit back to her!

Working with DJ Crumbcake (Colleen) was wonderful. When we were trying to find wedding music, we were so turned off by everyone who called themselves a "wedding band" or "wedding dj." When I saw popshop's website, I was so relieved to see a long list of music that I love. The djs at popshop do events, but that is not all they do. DJ Crumbcake also has a weekly radio show and spins at bars and venues all over New York. She traveled to Massachusetts for our wedding (we paid for her travel expenses). Everyone loved the dj and she kept people of all ages dancing all night. We had a blast. Colleen was a huge help to us throughout the planning process and helped us figure out many issues, such as flow. Fabulous experience! Highly recommend!

I got nothing but compliments on the music. Colleen had a great mix of music for our crowd and we were pleased. She went above and beyond and her first and only priority was what we wanted in order for the guests to be happy.

It just so happens in our case, our wedding served as more of a reunion than a reception/party, but those of us (including myself) danced as much as we could, when we didn't need a break to munch and drink. I'd definitely use her company's services again and highly recommend.

It just so happens in our case, our wedding served as more of a reunion than a reception/party, but those of us (including myself) danced as much as we could, when we didn't need a break to munch and drink. I'd definitely use her company's services again and highly recommend. Read less

Looking back at my wedding, my DJ was my best decision. Colleen from Popshop DJs was always responsive and incredibly organized and professional. Dave Fischoff was our DJ and the music from beginning to end was perfect. He was flexible, easy to reach in advance, helpful, offered suggestions and advice and every one of my friends commented on the music. He knew what to play to keep people dancing. I could not recommend them enough.

DJ Taro was the DJ for our wedding and he was really great to work with. Professional and always prepared he was great with suggesting songs and helping us with figuring out the right songs we wanted for our wedding.

After the first meeting he suggested putting a piece of paper on the fridge to write down songs that happened to pop into our heads that would be great for the wedding and that really worked well!

While we never had to meet up with Colleen, she was really prompt and responsive through emails and it was a pretty seamless process.

During the night of DJ Taro kept the dance floor going all night long. His announcements were never overpowering or obnoxious but really cool and classy. Just what we wanted.

We're really glad we had DJ Taro and Sugartown Industries as our DJ vendor.

We had DJ Taro for our wedding and he was absolutely amazing. Our guests are still raving about him. From the very beginning of the planning process, he really got it. We named a few songs and the overall vibe we were going for and he was instantly able to suggest other similar/better songs that fit right in. During the wedding, we also had a band for earlier in the evening and we were a bit nervous about the flow but he made it completely seamless and painless. His announcements were unobtrusive and perfectly timed. My guests danced the ENTIRE night and he even allowed a bonus number after the last song was played. I highly recommend DJ Taro and PopShop DJs for your wedding - you won't be disappointed!

DJ Wells Crandall was incredible. We met twice over a 9 month period and gelled instantly. He really took the time to understand my musicial influences/taste and the atmosphere I was hoping to create. Boy, did he deliver! My guests said this was the best wedding music they ever heard. The dance floor was occupied all night. The cocktail hour set the tone of an elegant dinner and the ceremony music created a spiritual and loving energy. Hire him for your next event and get the most bang for your buck. Rock on, Wells!

Having non-cheesy and non-cliche wedding music was really important to my husband (a professional musician) and I, and Sugartown was the perfect fit!

Wells DJed our wedding with a mix of music that not only made us happy, but kept our guests (from all age groups) interested as well! Everyone we dealt with at Sugartown was nothing but nice and professional!

The DJs are AMAZING! Sugartown is based out of New York and Philadelphia, but were available for our Connecticut wedding. I had heard wonderful things about Sugartown through Toast and Jam (another DJ vendor) in Chicago. While I had some initial challenges with the owner (e.g., responsiveness and errors in logistical details during the planning), our DJ (Tevis Jory), was beyond amazing, from our ceremony to the non-stop beats at the reception. Our guests remarked this was the BEST and most FUN wedding they had ever attended, which was very important to us. You know it's a good night when at the end, every guest is chanting in unison, "ONE MORE SONG! ONE MORE SONG!" I would *highly* recommend Sugartown for your tri-state (or surrounding area) wedding.

Wells DJed our wedding and did an absolutely outstanding job. We wanted a DJ who avoided the cliche wedding music, and we got a DJ who really created a great party for our wedding guests.

Wells met with us twice before the event to clarify exactly the kind of music we wanted, and it went off perfectly. He was able to adjust on the fly when our schedule was slightly adjusted and was really perfect. I highly suggest Sugartown!
