Hands down the best vendor we hired for our wedding. I can't say enough good things about Steve. He was an awesome MC. He had a wonderful program for custom introductions that our bridal party loved. His MC throughout the whole night had us on ...
schedule with our timeline and kept us going. It was a huge help because once the reception starts going, you forget about having certain things to do and he helped keep us on track while making sure the the music was perfect for each section of the night. Steve was the perfect DJ because we just gave him the songs that we had to have played and then told him to roll with the crowd and he did that. He took requests but also made sure that the music was keeping everyone pumped up. I could continue to go on. From our first meeting with Steve to the days right before, he made everything happen and he was a great DJ.

Steve Strain is amazing! My method of searching for DJs was to google "Portland DJs" and then email all of them to see what I could get for my money.
Steve responded immediately and offered a great rundown of his services. We set up a time...
to meet and he came to the meeting with not only all the info I needed, but lots of great suggestions and ideas as well. He discussed many things with us that we hadn't even thought of, like our intros, how we wanted to run toasts, do our first dance, get people on the dance floor, and more.
For our intros, he actually had us record custom introductions for the wedding party at his studio. It was so fun! We got to pick a theme for our intros (we went with game show) and then he set our intros to game show music. We hadn't told anyone about it, and the wedding party especially was surprised with their introductions!
Throughout the evening, we were impressed with Steve's attention and sense of the room. He was always keenly aware of what was going on, and adapted the music accordingly.
We were surprised and pleased that our dance floor was PACKED the entire night, which we attribute to Steve's excellent music choices. And for just a small fee, he also stayed an extra hour to keep up with the party that was still going.
I can honestly say it was a pleasure to work with Steve. He actually listened to what we wanted and helped us accomplish our vision. If I were doing this over, I would absolutely hire Steve again without hesitation!

Steve was an excellent DJ for our wedding. There were times in the planning process where I felt a little in the dark about what I should be doing, but it all worked out in the end. I also had spent a long time filling out various playlists and...
song requests, none of which were played until the very end of the wedding when most of my guests had left. The positive to it was that he read the audience and the audience age and played more appropriate music to get the crowd going. In the end, we had a great time and I was extremely happy with his services!

Overall our experience with Rose City was great! They listened to what we wanted and needed. It is run by a father and son and the son was our DJ. I believe it was his first solo experience, or at least one of the first. There were a few hiccup...

The DJ, although friendly was a terrible choice. He didn't have my wedding song cued so when I was supposed to walk down the aisle- I had to walk down to the same song as the wedding party. Then he tried to say that I didn't pick a song for wal...
king down the aisle.
Next as the wedding party was walking down the aisle to an appropriate song- he suddenly (and only for a second) started playing some crazy techno song. Then recovered and started playing the original song again.
During the unity candle ceremony he started playing one song then half way through changed it to a different song that was only supposed to be played if for some reason the unity candle lighting went too long( for instance- wind making the candles hard to light).
Finally, there was several times that I had to ask him to play music during the reception because there was dead air.
