    Amazing Dj

    We were so pleased with having Eric as our DJ. Even with planning everything with covid, we took so many safety measures. Couldn't be happier!

    Overall Amazing! Totally Reccommend

    Eric was very imformative when we had questions for him even right up to the day of our wedding. He was able to find all of the music we needed as well being able to use the ones that we had ourselves. If we ever need a dj for another event Eric will be the one we will be contacting.

    Wedding DJ

    Eric was such a great DJ - he kept the dance floor full all night and was open to my 100x song requests. We had a great night thanks to him!

    Disappointed

    With all honesty and all feedback from me(The Bride), Brandon (The Groom), the wedding party, my family, my father (Most Important) and also 22 guests, in counting; We would give a score of 0.5 star out of 5.0 stars total. In the beginning we met March 2018 & with our contract, the date was incorrect (June 20th 2019 but our date was July 20 2019); we requested a new one and never received one. I, myself, was messaged one month after about paying my bill early, then again a few months later, then again twice in the beginning of 2019. When we met up for our last meeting, the DJ didn't remember meeting us at all until Brandon said so. We gave a $150.00 payment and signed a contract to be forgotten about. Both times we all met in person and also over social media and via text messaging; we were told how outgoing, fun, energetic, talkative, professional, and much more the DJ was and also that he would bring games and promote guests to get up and dance that way. Non of those things were present at our wedding. Brandon (The Groom) stood right beside the DJ as well walked by him and looked at him numerous times and he didn't even acknowledge him; no guests were acknowledged or talked to, not even a smile; not one word from the DJ during the reception AT ALL; no games or entertainment (like we asked for only because he said he provided it); the only lights brought was one ball light that malfunctioned and had to be played with (was told other lights would be there); the DJs outfit was extremely unprofessional, the attire was not even bothered to look good or proper (plaid yellow shirt untucked, oversized cargo shorts with no belt and sandals?!?!?!?),my father come up and said the DJ looks like a bum from down the street; a playlist and wedding day itinerary were given to the DJ in great timing with a response from him that he received it and made us a playlist, well, 1. We were not happy (actually furious) to walk into our reception at 7:08pm with no music playing, sat down at our table, still no music playing, 7:19pm, still no music, I (bride) got Brandon (groom) to go see what the f*** was going on, then a really slow song is played. When that song stopped, so did the music !!!! There was a 6 minute silence until the next song, I finally got so pissed off I told my MC to start our first dance early. When we took our seats, again, no f***ing music!!! I got my MC to start all dances early and get them over with because obviously something was wrong with the DJ. After all that confusion, music was actually playing, just like you would be listening to a radio, more than half my playlist wasn't played but that was okay as long as there was music. But, one thing I did notice that was brought to my attention by various people was that the DJ was at the bar after every song put on and was continuously eating our reception food... he had five plates overloaded with our food, I actually had guests, my mother, my step daughter and husband come to me saying there wasn't any food left for them, this is and was NOT acceptable. I paid $1,598.55 for MY FAMILY & GUESTS (1 plate per person) to not get enough food!!! Not to mention all those same people said the DJ looked like he was "on something". Another thing that really upset me, myself, was that I paid for 5 hours of DJ services to watch the DJ (amount all other things) pack up at 10:34pm so I didn't get my last dance with my new husband, I didn't even know he was leaving until I walked back into the room to see him packing! (Also parked right in front of our doors to the venue from 5:00pm til he left at 11:00pm when he was paid til 12:00am). I spent my night livid with my choice of DJ service. We would never ever, ever recommend this service and we would advice my relatives and guests to do the same.

    Eric's DJ Services's reply:



    First and foremost I want too say I’m sorry you feel the way you did about my services. Now for the issues you have brought too my attention.


    I did send you the new revised contract it bounced back too me once you contact me and gave me your email address which is this one and I sent you asking you if you got it but I did not get a response back. This was the first of many times I tired reaching out to you with no response. You even apologized too me for not being in contact with me as much as you should have been, which I completely understand. It wasn’t a big deal for me, for I knew when I had too show up. If you did not receive it I should have been told. When I contact my clients to see if they want too pay some or all of their bill it’s not my intent too be harassing you, if it felt like it then I’m sorry, I always add that you are not obligated too but like too extend the offer. I had apologized for recognizing your guys faces but not your names a number of times during our meeting, you have to understand I meet about 70-80 brides and grooms in a year it’s hard for me too remember all names. That does not mean you are any less important to me than others. With a little memory jogging I did remember. You never ask me about games, if you had I would have told you from the start I don’t do games nor do I have any. But I would have told you you guys would have been more than welcomed to bring some and have someone run them. You also have to understand there is a reason why my prices are low, I'm what you call a no frills DJ service, if I start doing extra work and or bring extra equipment I will have to start charging more. In order for me to keep my prices avoidable I can’t do extra. If you want extra it will be at a cost, that goes for all DJ companies that I know of. Brandon said hi too me when he got there and asked me if my setup was going good I acknowledged him and said yes, you were across from me waiting too go out to your ceremony and I waved at you acknowledging your presence. I told you both that my lights are simple ( another reason why my prices are low) I thought it gave off some great light in that small room. I did bring a suit with me but decided not too wear it because it was still not all that cool in the venue, what I was wearing was a dress shirt ( which was tucked in) clean kaki shorts. It was pretty much what a lot of your male guests were wearing according too the weather of the day. Oh and I had closed toe black shoes not sandals. At the end of the ceremony when people were coming in I did have background music playing, you guys never mentioned background music during our talks but during those times I always play background music for it adds a nice touch when people are sitting. Your MC took forever to introduce the special dances that’s why there was an awkward pauses in between, I was not in control of that even though at the first I offered. And with me eating 5 plates of food is so absurd that one made me really scratch my head. I had one plate of food ( one hotdog, one hamburger and a handful of fries) I overheard one of your guests complaining there was not enough food their first trip through, the wait staff said I’m sorry but we were told to put out enough food for one go through. I never once saw you or Brandon in the room at any one time, I played about 80% of your music with you guys not even interested in staying in the room longer than 5 seconds. This usually doesn’t bother me it’s your night you can do whatever you want, but if you are going too say I did not play a lot of your list then maybe it’s because you guys were not present long enough to notice. The whole night I noticed your guests were not dancers they were more social butterflies, which is ok not everyone is so when 10:30 rolled around and people were packing up and there were about 6 people in the room, your MC told me I might as well pack it up. Nothing worse for a DJ is too play for a empty room. But I will till I’m told otherwise, and I was told. I was told by the staff that I could park my car in front for they were not expecting anyone needing that spot. I was only going too the bar every so often too get water ( I don’t drink liquor at my shows I’m working and I treat it like work). I never was late coming back with any song stopping. Again I’m sorry you guys feel this way, I booked you guys and treated your show with the upmost respect and professionalism. If you did not see or feel that then there is a miss understanding. Take care it was a pleasure in meeting you guys. All the best in the future

    Good Price, but Gauge Your Expectations Accordingly

    Eric made our wedding run relatively smoothly from the sound perspective. He rented a portable PA system for us. When I asked him questions about my requirements and etc, he didn't make me feel confident in the equipment and what it could do (though I had a fairly complicated setup). We asked him to cue a song to a certain time and either communication didn't get through or he forgot. Reception was good, there was a bit of feedback at times, but I fixed it myself by telling the MC to move to the other side of the room. He also played a different version of our first dance song that we expected (a cover?). We do have to say though, that Eric showed up 4 hours early to set up and dressed accordingly and the equipment was neat.

    Overall though, for what we paid ($600 for 9 hours), we appreciated Eric's service. Thank you Eric.

    Eric's DJ Services's reply:

    Thank you josh for the review. And thank you for letting me a small part in your guys big day. Now too address the issues you brought up. I had told you I had used the portable speaker many many times and after you guys described the setup you wanted I was 100% confident I could successfully achieve this using that speaker system. I answered your repeated questions about the speaker system even to go as far as sending you a YouTube link on how the speaker system worked and even went as far as asked the experts at Long and McQuaid their professional opinion. Talking about feelings I felt very insulted with all the questions you were directing to me after I did all that for you. I felt you were just being difficult and questioning my abilities. I understand it’s your day and it’s a big important one but when I had lengths I did to accommodate your ceremony the 3rd degree type of questioning was not needed. I’m not sure what time you are talking about that I missed a cue, every moment was met with no hesitation. I had told your MC before I handed him the mic that he can’t stand in front of the speakers with the mic in hand. He completely ignored my instructions and turned around and stood right in front of the speakers and preceded to talk. Feedback in this situation will happen no matter what system you are using. I don’t know what you are meaning I played a cover song for your first dance. I played the exact song you sent me and requested. Anyway it was nice meeting you two. Congratulations once again. Take care
