Best DJ In Pittsburgh!

Reviewed on 12/30/2015 Madison P

Eric Schiemer went above and beyond any expectation that my husband and I had for our DJ services on the day of our wedding. What drew us to Eric was his amazing website showing playlists from weddings throughout the years, and a concrete idea of what to expect from him. He... Read More not only provides amazing musical services for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception, but he also takes some amazing photos of the special day. Eric's photos were wonderful and really helped capture a few moments of the day/night that we would not have had otherwise. I mean, REALLY NICE (Check out his website). Aside from being professional and extremely organized, Eric was also a very kind and amiable person to work with. He made us want to work with him! Instead of scheduling an in person meeting to start, I opted for a phone call to find out more information. Eric had so much energy and great ideas that I could tell we would all work well together. From then on, we signed a contract with Eric and never had to worry about a thing. He was great at keeping in touch when certain items needed to be confirmed, and when we needed advice for song choices, he had thoughtful ideas. In the months leading up to the wedding, my husband and I met with Eric and ran through a timeline of the wedding day. Eric helped us organize what songs would be played at what times, and gave valuable input on ideas that we had. He works with you to organize the type of reception you hope to have and for us, we wanted a nonstop dance party. Eric delivered and made our music dreams come true! He acted as an MC for the night and really led the introductions, speeches, and special dances. Our reception would not have been the same without him and the number of compliments we received regarding his work was overwhelming. I've since referred him to multiple couples getting married in 2016 because it is clear that he will not disappoint. On top of an amazing night with great music, Eric also blogged about our wedding and mailed us a personalized time lapse, photo montage, and copy of the playlist from our wedding. My husband and I truly believe that we received the best treatment from him and cannot thank him enough for his help and hard work. We like to think that we not only had a wonderful time due in large part to Eric's skills, but also that we made a friend in the process. Work with Eric Schiemer and you will be so happy that you did!


DJ Eric is the best!

If you want to have an incredible wedding, book DJ Eric Schiemer right now! My husband and I booked Eric for our September 2015 wedding and he was one of our best decisons we made during that process. He loves DJing and it shows. All night we had guests coming up to us saying... Read More what an awesome DJ we had. I wish I was more of a party planner type because if I could work with Eric all the time, I would! He is so responsive, very organized, and by your event he will be your friend! He's such a steal I still can't believe it - he DJed/MCed our wedding reception, handled our ceremony music (all wireless speakers...no messy cords!), designed our monogram, provided beautiful uplighting, AND took all kinds of fun (and great quality) reception pictures. The pictures were especially awesome because he posted them by the next morning so we got to look at them with our families at brunch. In fact, he took one of my favorite pictures of my husband and I during our first dance. We are even getting it blown up to hang in our house! On top of that, he gives you a login for your own fantastic online music planner. You enter all the songs you want to play for your different events (i.e., first dance, cake cutting, parent dances, etc.) and if he doesn't have the music, he'll get it. You can also make 3 playlists on there - "Love It" (songs he will definitely play), "Like It" (he'll play some and use the rest as a guide), and "Hate It" (he will BAN - goodbye "Funky Chicken!!). He will totally make your wedding whatever you want it to be. He had the dance floor full with guests of all ages the entire night because he is great at reading the crowd. Oh, one more thing, he is a total BLAST. My husband and I even stopped dancing at one point to make sure we got a picture with our favorite DJ ever! It was a great experience working with him and he really goes out of his way to make your special day as perfect as possible. Book DJ Eric now!

Hire Eric. He will be the best decision you make for your wedding. He is so wonderful and I cannot say enough about him. From the beginning he was so excited and enthusastic about our wedding, we really felt that he cared about all of it as much as we did. He was very responsive... Read More and offered help whenever we needed it. He uses a website that makes it simple to plan your ceremony and reception and gives you the option to manage the music as much as you want. At the wedding, he did a phenomenal job reading the room and playing whatever would get people up dancing and keep people on the floor. Every song he picked was fantastic and it felt like he really knew who we are and what we like. In addition to being the best wedding DJ, Eric is also an amazing photographer. He took beautiful photos of our reception space, of people dancing, and of all the special dances happening throughout the night. Not only are the photos amazing, they're so quick. We got married at 6:00pm on a Saturday night and we had pictures by the next afternoon. Eric is truly amazing and will make your wedding unforgettable.

Not only that, but you can TELL he loves his job and loves helping people have an awesome wedding. That positivity reflects in all his work. I know there are a lot of options when you're looking for a DJ, and it can be hard to pick a DJ because you can't see them in action beforehand. But I would urge anyone looking for a DJ to give Eric a call. You will not be disappointed. Thank you again Eric for all the help making our wedding unforgettable!

Eric is the best DJ ever!! You seriously cannot go wrong hiring him. We reached out to him based on a rave review from our friend's wedding. Eric is unbelievably organized, ready to help, and very supportive. The entire music situation - the ceremony, cocktail hour, and... Read More reception - was a breeze thanks to Eric. He made sure to even discuss design with us. Our venue was outside and he found a way to set up the speakers so that we didn't even notice them. We met a week before the wedding and we left feeling a renewed excitement for the big day! I never had to worry at all about Eric doing exactly what we wanted and needed. Our venue let us stay really late and not only did Eric stay to keep the party going, but he did the most amazing job of "reading" the dance floor and kept people on it all night long. He even had pictures for us (that he had asked to take ahead of time) - which ended up being some of our favorites from the entire day!

He made the planning process so easy with an online portal that we could control and be as hands on or hands off... Read More as we wanted. He had set up helpful sample playlists and libraries as well as laid out every important and fun song we would need to think of. On the day of he continued to check in with us before switching gears and smoothly mc'd everything. The dance floor was crowded the entire night. The most amazing thing that happened and the reason I will recommend him to absolutely everyone is that we had guests say goodbye to us towards the end of the reception who decided to stay until the very end because they just had to dance to the next songs that were played. Eric sent us a flash drive of pictures and songs that was waiting for us when we got back to our honeymoon. We joked that with all of that we should have paid him more money! If we could give Eric more than 5 stars we would.
