My husband and I could not have asked for a more memorable, organized, and amazing day! From the moment we were referred to John by family friends, we were impressed. He handled our music and uplighting with energy and professionalism. One major aspect that made working... Read More with John so enjoyable and made the wedding go off without a hitch was his clear and frequent line of communication. John made himself readily available to answer any questions and concerns we had via phone, e-mail, and video conferencing. His responses were always prompt - his communication coupled with his organization helped to plan every aspect of our reception and eliminated issues to make our day run smoothly! John went above and beyond in making sure that we had a fantastic evening. He monitored the dance floor closely to transition between songs if guests weren't dancing, took requests with ease, and lead a number of group dances to keep the party rolling. Several guests approached us after the evening had ended to "complain" that they kept waiting for a *bad* song to come up so they could take a break from the dance floor, but none played! Our guests raved about the music selections, energy, and enthusiasm of John and (four weeks later!) are still talking about how fantastic, friendly, and energetic of a vendor he was! Not only did John handle our music and uplighting, he made sure that we had everything we could possibly need the day of the wedding. His crew was out and about the entire evening to take pictures of the reception - catching some better snapshots than our hired photographers! Having worked with several other vendors for our wedding, John and PartyProDJ were, by far, our favorites. They were not only professional and enjoyable to work with, but were good at what they did. We cannot say enough about how much we loved the experience of working with them!

Beth was amazing to work with. She knows what she is doing and makes suggestions during the planning process which ultimately ensure a smoother reception. Dj Mike was very happy and fun.

I am the mother of the bride and as such can be a bit over the top. Beth handled me and my daughter with much professionalism. She answered all of our questions and sat and listened while I poked and prodded. She came through with all of her promises. She said she knew...

Everything from the lighting to the music to his fabulous personality were perfect. Beth was absolutely great to deal with and I am so very happy with everything. John was full of personality and the best at getting the guests engaged right from the start and being sure everyone was involved with the toast, first dance, cutting of the cake,etc. There was never an empty dance floor - just as we had hoped for. I would highly recommend Beth and PartyProd DJ any time!

PartyPro is the best DJ company EVER! John and his team are beyond amazing. From Day 1 until our big day, John was extremely responsive to all of my calls and emails. He was extremely organized, personable, friendly, helpful, and simply a pleasure to work with. Prior to our... Read More wedding, I already knew he would be outstanding. At our wedding, the dance floor was literally NEVER empty. My friends and family could not stop raving about how good our wedding DJ was, and how the music was “on point”. I had many people ask for the name of our DJ. It’s now been over two weeks since the wedding, and I still have people commenting on what an amazing dance party our wedding was. Absolutely, 100% recommend!!

My husband and I had a long engagement, and we hired PartyPro DJ long before our July 22nd wedding. They were actually the first vendor that we hired, and were the first to truly make us excited about our wedding. We first met with John, who walked us through every step of the... Read More entire evening. He discussed lighting, song choices, photobooths, announcements--the works--with us, and never once did we feel that we were being rushed out the door. Leading up to the wedding, we met with John and Tom, who was our DJ the night of the wedding. Again, John made us feel incredibly comfortable with the events that would unfold, and I, as a complete control freak, felt completely confident in handing over the biggest night of my life to Tom. The company is incredibly organized and detailed. Songs are discussed, checklists are filled out collaboratively, and suggestions are made. I think my favorite part of that final meeting was when John said, "You tell us what you want. Don't make choosing the songs feel like work. Give us a sense of what you like, take control of as much as you'd like, and we will fill in the rest." What a sense of relief that brought. Let's be real--being tasked with choosing every song to be played at your wedding is a lot of pressure, so that statement took a huge weight off. The night of the wedding, Tom and Annie guided the entire process. He came up to the bridal suite to walk the party, Joe, and I through introductions. He reminded Joe and I that he would announce other big moments like the dances and cake cutting. He promised that he would look around and make sure moms, dads, grandparents, etc. were in the room before making any announcements. And, he challenged my very competitive bridal party to rock the dance floor harder than any other wedding. Everything he said came true, and went according to plan. Tom kept a pace going that didn't feel rushed, but allowed us to have a solid few hours of dancing. He played an amazing mix that kept everyone, old and young, on the floor. He checked with me about any guest requests (as previously discussed), but always adhered to Joe's and my requests. He rocked the house--everyone's feet hurt by the end of the night! I would highly recommend PartyPro DJ, led by John, as well as DJ Tom, to anyone. Their prices are incredibly fair, their service is impeccable, and they are available to answer any and all questions, anytime. We have not one complaint about the services, and wish we could relive the night over and over again!

Our DJ, Tom, and his assistant Beth, did a really great job for us on the day of our wedding. During cocktail hour, Tom went around to make sure everything was in order, learning who people were so that he could be prepared for introductions and announcements later in the... Read More evening. He gathered everyone together for toasts and made access to the microphone very easy for everyone involved. After that, we had hoped to take a group photo of everyone at the wedding, and Tom helped make sure we didn’t lose a single person, which we greatly appreciated. During the dancing portion of the evening, Tom arranged the songs really well and created a fun atmosphere for everyone - I think the dance floor was full the entire evening. Everyone we’ve talked with has said how much fun they had at the reception, and we wanted to thank Tom and Beth so much for helping to make our day so wonderful.

I genuinely cannot say enough about DJ John and his entire team!!! He is literally the best ever!!!!! Not only was he amazing during the entire event playing ceremony music, cocktail hour, reception and after party but he genuinely cared about the entire event from soup to... Read More nuts. He was in continuous contact with me, helping with planning the entire event not just the music throughout the full year! We even met at my venue which was over a 2 and 1/2 hour drive for him so he can see the space and help me plan all components! We spoke throughout the whole year and his presence truly put me at ease. As far as music goes, he absolutely killed it! He listened to our exact wants and delivered 100% and then some!! They also handled our uplighting which was BEAUTIFUL and photo booth which is always a party pleaser. HIGHLY recommend PartyPro DJ and even more recommend DJ John!

John was absolutely AMAZING on our wedding day and the months leading up to it. He is very professional and really listens to what you want. We had a few in person / phone call meetings where we went through everything. He made me feel at ease through the process with his humor... Read More and suggestions. We even shot each other a few texts the day of the wedding with last minute changes I thought of. My wedding was an absolute blast! Everyone was on the dance floor from my 3 year old flower girl to my 85 year old grandma. He made special announcements throughout the night to remind guests to sign the guest book and go outside for a sparkler sendoff. I would highly recommend John to anyone looking for a fun, upbeat, and considerate DJ! I've been to weddings in the past where the Dj didn't even listen to the bride's request and that was not the case for me at all! I got to hear every song I requested and that was really important for me! Also, I met our JOP through John! Her name was Annie and she assisted him after she performed our ceremony! I am so grateful I came into contact with John and Annie when I did! She made our ceremony light and fun and helped to keep the night on track! John and Annie worked really well together and I'm so happy I got to experience the best day of my life with them by my side!

What blew me away was the fact that he hopped off the stage to lead the crowd in group dances and wowed me by really getting down and knowing his stuff! I've never seen a DJ do that! He was a guest and friend, not a vendor. He had fun and kept our dance time flowing.
