Pittsburgh DJ Company, and particularly DJ Dean, were an absolute pleasure to work with...it was a real relief to know that of all the parts of planning a wedding, we could rely on DJ Dean's professionalism and quality of service. We had actually seen him perform at a friend's wedding and when we saw how he conducted himself and the event, we knew we had to have him for our wedding as well. Aside from being flexible with meeting times, he was also extremely flexible with what music we wanted. I am Scottish, and my wife is German and we wanted to play some ethnic songs during the wedding - Dean was able to blend the traditional songs in with the more standard dance music very well. He also gave strong feedback on if I wanted to play a certain song for dancing and he would let me how that usually went over from previous weddings, so I entered the day with total confidence in our playlists. People always remember the food and the dancing at weddings, and I am still hearing from friends and family about how much they danced at our wedding.
One final fun fact - our Bride and Groom place cards had been lost in the shuffle of dancing and clean up - Dean not only retrieved the place cards but also framed them and mailed them to us with a hand written note. We were blown away that not only he would save them, but also frame them and mail them was well beyond the call of duty, but also says a lot about him and his quality of work as well.
I would TOTALLY recommend him and his company for anyone's wedding!
DJ Matt Donnelly was so great. We had a small wedding and he made sure we still had fun and the crowd got out on the dance floor. We had a few changes to the schedule the day of and he was fine adjusting with us. After the wedding we had a ton of comments that we picked an awesome DJ and we agree. I would absolutely recommend.
Me and my husband recently got married and we chose Pittsburgh DJ Company because of all the great reviews they had. Of course you never know how they will actually be until the day of the wedding and our DJ Pat Flaherty was absolutely incredible!!! The whole company was always very easy to contact and they responded to emails right away! Pat was so nice and easy to get along with he really tries to accommodate you in any way and tries to make it the least stressful part of planning your wedding. I told him my main goal was to have people out on the dance floor all night and he did just that! Everyone had a blast he had people on the floor that never dance! Absolutely hands down would recommend Pittsburgh DJ Company to anyone who wants a great/fun DJ and I would most def. recommend Pat Flaherty for the DJ, he is absolutely great!!!

We used the Pittsburgh DJ Company, specifically DJ Joe Orbovich. We had a few minor requests, but mostly let Joe take charge --- the only REAL request was that we wanted everyone to dance and have fun! Joe definitely delivered. He did a great job of picking out great dance songs and mixing in our few "must haves" too. It was also great that Joe directed the main events of the wedding too. It made everything run smoothly and really eased any responsibilities we would have had.
After we had placed our deposit with Pittsburgh DJ Co, we found out from a few other sources (recently married couples in the Pittsburgh area) that they had found less expensive DJs that they were really happy with (which we were disappointed we missed!), so if you're stuck with a really tight budget, know that there are other options that could be less expensive. Other than that, we were very happy with our choice and are grateful to Joe for doing such a great job and keeping our dance floor PACKED!
Dean was a great DJ. He was fun and professional. We talked on the phone about songs to play and he was very helpful. He took charge and knew what to do at the reception and was flexible in his schedule. We had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend him!
For our wedding, my husband and I chose Matt Miller from Pittsburgh DJ Company and it was honestly one of the best decisions we made. We had video conferences with multiple DJs prior but as soon as we chatted with Matt, we immediately liked him. For one, he wasn't cheesy like a lot of the other DJs had seemed. Matt seemed down to earth, friendly, and focused on ensuring that our reception would be everything that we envisioned it to be. Selecting all the song selections was really simple. Pittsburgh DJ Company had an online worksheet accessible from their website that was used to fill in song choices. The week of the wedding Matt got in touch with us and we finalized everything. For our wedding party intros we had chosen for every couple to be introduced to a different song, and I was very specific about which part of the song I wanted them to come into. Matt is the man-he made it flawless! There was even a section entitled "Must play songs" and I probably chose close to 20 songs, and Matt even made sure that every song I had picked was played that night.
The night of our wedding the music he played was great and upbeat, definitely kept everyone dancing. He also chose some great slow songs as well for all the couples to dance to. He was a great entertainer and kept the reception going. Great personality, was easy to work with; we have nothing but great things to say about Matt Miller. Will definitely be recommending him.
We used Dj Dean for our May 3 wedding at the Children's Museum and from the very start Dean was wonderful to work with. He answered all of our questions and made our night very special. Thanks for making our night exactly what we wanted!
Dean, the DJ at our daughter's wedding, kept the guests up and dancing after dinner until the last second of the reception!! My daughter and her now husband chose the DJ for the wedding. My only request was that they find one that keeps everyone on the dance floor all evening. Dean did that and more. He played a variety of music that kept the bride and groom's friends and the "old folks" (friends of the parents) dancing.
I would recommend The Pittsburgh DJ Company to anyone planning a wedding in the Pittsburgh Area. Request Dean as your DJ.
Our DJ was great. The basic lighting package was fantastic. They played every song we requested. Great job
Dean was a great DJ from start to finish. He kept the event moving along, making sure everything took place when it should from introductions to the bouquet and garter toss.
Dean is very professional, flexible and played some great music to keep the party going. There was never a lull in the dancing, and guests even told me the next day they were recovering from so much dancing. That's what I wanted...great music to keep people on the dance floor and enjoying the party. The feedback we've received after the wedding was how great the DJ was, and having a memorable DJ makes for a memorable wedding. Thanks Dean for making our special day so amazing. Ali and Nate.
Pittsburgh DJ Company's Matt Medley was such an awesome and fun DJ at our wedding! Matt was truly the key to making sure the entire night ran smoothly and sequence of events was perfect. The guests were always entertained and the dance floor was constantly full! Great music and colorful decorative lighting really took the look and atmosphere to the next level!
We couldn't of been happier with Pittsburgh DJ Company!
Thanks again Matt!!

DJ Dean was the DJ for our wedding reception. He was absolutely fabulous. We were very particular about the music that we wanted played and the style of DJ that we wanted, and Dean exceeded our expectations with both. He kept the dance floor full, played the music that we wanted as well as our guest's requests, without being overly "showy". He was extremely professional and didn't need to be the center of attention, but kept the night flowing! We would definitely recommend Dean!
The Pittsburgh DJ company came highly reccomended, and is worth the cost. Their staff are amazing and they truly care about your ceremony or reception going off without a hitch! Matt, our DJ, did a wonderful job keeping the party going with a great selection of music that kept everyone smiling and dancing! We are so blessed, and will cherish the wonderful memories of that night! We can't say thank you enough! I would also like to thank Janae for helping with some last minute lighting additions!
We had DJ Matt Miller from PGH DJ Co. provide the music services for our wedding reception. Matt was the most polite, professional DJ we interviewed so we chose him for the entertainment. We couldn't be more pleased with his performance and services. He kept the party going all night and was very accomodating to our music requests. I would gladly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a reliable, professional DJ.
Pat was fantastic to work with for our wedding reception. He was responsive to our suggestions and things we wanted and made his own suggestions based on his experiences. Even though I could not be on the dance floor the entire night, it was never empty. He played a great variety of music which is what we wanted and at one time or another, everyone was on the dance floor. Pat made the reception fun, easy going, and so very memorable.
I could not have been happier with my choice of Pittsburgh DJ Company, especially Dean McAfee. From the very beginning, I knew I would be satisfied with them. For starters, their prices are RIGHT ON their website and are REASONABLE (not many DJs will do this and are outrageously expensive).
I immediately emailed, and from that day forward received the quickest responses from Janae...the best, nicest, most helpful office coordinator out there!!!
Even better, the day of the wedding, Dean was absolutely amazing! As the bride, you do not want to be worried about your vendors, and with Dean, I did NOTHING! He had everything perfect and ready to go...without needing ME! It was the absolute best not needing to check up on how things are going.
THEN...his music was exactly what I wanted and had people on the dance floor all night. What was the best was how he played ALL of the requests of my guests...which made them feel so welcomed.
I could go on and on about the positive experience that I had with Dean and the rest of the Pittsburgh DJ Company. Thank you for a GREAT wedding!
I may be a little biased as it was my wedding, but our dance party after dinner was PHENOMENAL and that had a lot to do with how awesome our DJ was. DJ Dean was incredible and did an amazing job with balancing the playlist so that everyone had a good time - from our young cousins and friends to older family members. Our dance floor was packed for pretty much the entire night, which was exactly what we were hoping for. He also did a great job with dinner - we requested a 90s mix and he created a great atmosphere. He also did a great job of keeping the order of events moving throughout the night - we really didn't need to worry about anything as he would let us know when we needed to get ready for the next part of the evening. I really can't say enough about how great he was - we loved having him at our wedding!
When we started to plan our wedding (almost 2 years ago), the DJ was our first vendor (after the venue) that we started looking for. We interviewed several DJ's around the area, since one of the most important things for us was getting the best DJ.
When we read the reviews, we quickly scheduled an interview with DJ Dean because he was one of the DJ's who got five stars. We felt confident reading all the good reviews and were never concerned about him during the planning process.
But the experience on our wedding day was quite a disappointment for the following reasons:
-We made specific notes to him about the type of music we wanted him to play. He started the reception playing music that was not conducive to making people dance. Then I asked my husband to ask him to change the music to something more "dance-able". There was no change, so I politely asked again. Then asked him roughly three more times to please change the music. Then my sister-in-law and father-in-law asked him, and he finally changed it.
-He played most of the songs we requested. However, early on he tended to play a song we requested that got people dancing, but then he would play a song that was usually older, slower and bland, making people go back and forth on and off the dance floor. At some point, some of our guests were making comments: "How can we dance to this?"
-Monogram: We payed for a monogram to be projected behind the head table. You could literally see a background square of light that was crooked. I've been to several weddings and the monograms they used were incredible with just clean distinct letters, without squares of back-lighting. In regards to the uplights, though, those were great.
With all this being said, the music during last two hours of the reception was good and people were dancing. But the stress and worry that went into the beginning of the reception was quite frustrating. We were planning on paying him to stay extra hours, but we changed our minds in the end.
This bride has actually given a perfect example of why you SHOULD hire a professional DJ service like Pittsburgh DJ Company...
See, every DJ wants the entire crowd to do cartwheels to the dancefloor as soon as the dancing starts, but that doesn't al...
This company made it easy to plan, and I really enjoyed our music.
We are a bit confused by the 4 star rating, but we're glad that you loved your experience with us!
Dean and Pittsburgh DJ Company are amazing. Best DJ in all of Pittsburgh. He really knows how to get the party started. He isn't on the microphone being annoying either. He lets the party happen by playing the right music. He is super accommodating too. I was late providing all my music choices to him too and he was easily able to accommodate what I wanted and made everything perfect. His uplighting and monograms are great too. I would highly recommend Dean for your wedding or party!
