Porta Party- Worth the Splurge

Reviewed on 2/11/2014 Erin A

As someone with an event management background, I am a strong believer that the entertainment provided at any wedding or event is a key factor in how good of a time your guests have and how they remember your event. Porta Party DJs provided the entertainment at my wedding, my... Read More sister's wedding and a charity event I had worked in between. And people still talk about all of them, years later! They are experts at reading the crowd and knowing what to do to keep people dancing and partying all night long. They are so easy to work with, as a vendor, that you don't ever feel the need to micromanage and can just sit back and enjoy everything going on around you. They may have been a bit more expensive than some of the other DJs I met with, but I was instantly comfortable with them and, in the end, you get what you pay for. I have never regretted going a bit above my budget on this aspect. I was much more satisfied cutting back somewhere else than on the music service.

Todd quite literally made our wedding a party, and it's exactly what we wanted. His crowd interaction is flawless, and he plays something for everyone.

I LOVE Porta Party DJs. My friend used them as their wedding DJ service, and they were the best I'd ever heard at a wedding reception, so I used them too! We had Charlie as our MC, and he couldn't have done a better job. I wanted a packed dancefloor, and that's exactly what I... Read More got! He played all the songs I said would get me movin' and avoided the cheesy prototypical wedding reception music I can't stand. Plus he was totally interactive and funny instead of just sitting there spinning songs all night. I sweated more than I wanted to in my wedding dress because I spent so much time on the dancefloor. :) The price (about $1200) reflects 6 hours of DJ service plus several more hours of setting up (they set up all the audio for our ceremony too--brought microphones, speakers, and a sound board for our ceremony musicians as well as a projector for our slide show). They were awesome. A+

When I booked Porta Party DJ's I had really wanted Todd, because I had been to another wedding he did and was blown away.
