ERIC STARR SAVED OUR WEDDING!!
No joke, guys. Eric Starr is THE BEST in the business!! Why is that? Saddle up, kids. It's story time.
So our wedding was last Saturday we were slated to have a really fun live band play at the wedding. Things w...
ere moving along until the day before the wedding, we get a call from the band leader. Bad news - the band had come down with COVID and couldn't play at the wedding.
Cue absolute PANIC!
My bride-to-be and I absolutely scrambled to find a band to fill in, but nobody was within our price range and, even harder, was available to play a wedding the next day! We were freaking out.
That is, until our wedding coordinators contacted us and said that their go-to DJ, Mr. Eric Starr, had an opening on Saturday and was down to last-minute DJ our wedding. Our sighs of relief could be heard miles away.
Now, we'd had our hearts set on not using a DJ and instead doing the live band experience, but after a conversation with Eric over the phone, we knew that Eric was the MAN for the job! He clued into all of our favorite musical stylings immediately, knew exactly what kind of genres we wanted to dance to, and offered some incredible suggestions to mimic the vibe of a live band and ensure that everyone would spend the whole night on that dance floor.
AND BOY WAS HE RIGHT!
The day of the wedding, Eric showed up HOURS before the wedding was scheduled to begin, just to make sure that all his equipment and everything was PERFECT and the sound would be exactly what we needed. If that doesn't scream "professional" to you, I don't know what will.
The wedding kicked off and he MC'd the whole night as though he'd been preparing for our wedding for a year - when in reality he'd only had 1 DAY TO PREPARE FOR THIS THING!!! AND HE BLEW THE ROOF OFF OUR VENUE!
People were dancing, drinking, and partying for hours thanks to Eric!! He was so on top of every aspect of the wedding and was in complete control every moment of the night. I was dumbstruck at how unbelievable this guy was! How he managed to get everything together and executed so perfectly in ONE DAY was completely astounding.
And after the wedding, all of our guests wouldn't stop talking about how amazing the DJ was!! I heard it from so many people I started to finish their sentences for them -
"Kevin your DJ was-"
"Amazing. The best. Rocked it all night. Oh yes. I know!"
And to top it all off, Eric threw in some freebies for our wedding that just ABSOLUTELY ELEVATED the entire venue!! Just because he's a cool guy and thought our wedding aesthetic would be kicked up a notch with his gift. And IT SURE AS HELL WAS!
Book Eric Starr for your wedding, people. Trust me. There is no DJ out there in the greater San Diego area, much less the world that is better than my man Eric!!
Incredible service, incredible professionalism, incredible talent, incredible prices. He's a one-man package and will take your event to new heights!!

Eric DJ'd our 07/17/2015 wedding at the Martin Johnson House in La Jolla. We met with him in March, and knew immediately that we wanted him for our day!
We were really focused on picking out our own music for most of the day, wanting more i...
ndie and rock earlier during cocktail and dinner, and then modern party music with songs for the older generations mixed in for the dancing part of the evening. He listened to all of our requests, and thenput together seamless selectrions of music that incorporated what we wanted, but also kept the whole day moving!
We even had some silly requests (an uncle of mine and his sons did a little skit, we had some friends do a choreographed dance later in the evening), and he handled them all with tact and made sure everyone felt included. I even requested if Eric could play "Timber" by Kesha a second time later in the night (it's my favorite party song), and he told me "I'll play anything you want, you're the bride!"
Eric is also very tech savvy, which made our lives so much easier among all our wedding vendors. He accepts credit card payment, and you complete your timeline, song requests, etc through his secure website. After an initial face to face meeting, we had one phone meeting shortly before our wedding. Otherwise we completed everything online at our own pace, which was really helpful!
Thank you Eric for keeping our party going on a high note and working with all of our special requests. I would recommend Eric to anyone!

Eric provided amazing DJ services for our outdoor destination wedding in La Jolla. His online system for scheduling the details of the event and selecting recommended and “do not play” songs was very convenient for us because we live in a diffe...
rent time zone. He was easy to talk to on the phone and highly professional. We spoke with him before the wedding about our music tastes, the specific songs we needed him to play (e.g., for first/last/parents dances, etc) and the progression of music styles throughout the night, and then he did a fantastic job with the rest!
Eric brought portable microphones for the ceremony (important due to the coastal breezes and background noise) and understood the layout of the venue well enough to perfectly set up his equipment including the extra up-lights that he brought. We didn’t see him much on the day of the wedding but I know he was working hard behind the scenes with our wedding coordinator to keep things running smoothly. He also played a big part in keeping everything on schedule (we wanted to pack a lot of special events into a short period of time and had to vacate the venue by a specific time at the end of the night to avoid extra fees). We never even had to think about timing or transitioning between different components of the event because his announcements made all of that happen perfectly.
Eric also seems to really understand his audience. Our wedding involved a mix of slower oldies at the beginning and progressed into faster dance party music by the end. He knew how to read the crowd and when to pick things up and slow things down. Leading up the wedding, we were really nervous that no one would dance, but on the wedding day, due to Eric’s great music and enthusiasm, we almost had the opposite problem. There were so many people dancing all night long!

Eric was extremely professional and super fun! Eric has done a LOT of weddings, so he totally knew what he was doing! We met with him a couple times before the wedding to discuss our music selections and ideas for the wedding and he was open to...
everything! His website makes selecting your songs and planning out the event timeline so easy. He was so nice and not really cheesy like some other DJ's we've encountered! He even got to the venue early and put on some fun songs for the family and friends that showed up early to help set up the decorations. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a really fun and affordable DJ!

For the money he did a great job. We had a smaller wedding so we knew that there weren't going to be a ton of people on the dance floor. I gave Eric a very detailed timeline and music selection and he did a great job following it. People did re...
quest a few weird songs that I would not have played but at least they were dancing! He was prompt and on-time and his gear worked great with the venue.

Eric was very professional and did exactly what we asked for. His data bank of music is quite vast so all of our music requests were met. I would definitely recommend Eric to anyone that is looking for a DJ and if we have another party he will ...
definitely be our guy!

My husband didn't think a DJ was important. He wanted to set up a play list on an IPOD and just hit shuffle. Of course, I wasn't going to let that happen, but our budget didn't have much left over for a DJ. We found Eric Starr online and met wi...
th him 10 days before our wedding. He was amazing! He was so helpful and inexpensive. We would recommmend him to anyone looking for a DJ. My husband even said that Eric made the wedding great.
