Andrew, with Encore Mobile DJ's, was fantastic! He was on point with the timing for our ceremony music, chose the perfect selection of music for our reception, and was a fantastic MC. Before booking with Encore, I was a little worried about how to select a DJ for our wedding, because many DJ's can be a bit cheesy, but Andrew was not cheesy in the least! He was very professional, and knew exactly how to read the room to keep the party going. We provided him a short list of "must play" music, he gathered requests from our guests, and he compiled them into the perfect playlist to keep people on the dance floor. I cannot say a single negative thing about him, or Encore, as a whole. Even their prices were very affordable, compared to all the other DJ's I checked out. My procrastination/indecisiveness paid off (for once), because they offered specials throughout the year, and I was able to get a great discount. I highly recommend Encore, and especially Andrew!
Katie was an amazing DJ at our wedding! She kept the guests involved and kept everyone dancing the entire time! Her hula-hoop skills also were a hit!
Highly recommended for wedding DJ. Listened to our requests and got a feel for our preferences in a pre-event meeting and then perfectly integrated it all the day of.
Katie was also extremely helpful with the overall event during the day, not just playing music.
It's safe to say when it comes to music, I'm eclectic at best. So choosing music for my wedding was no small task because it's so tough to choose what I like best. After meeting with Brett, I was so excited to get my wedding started! He brought up occasions for songs I hadn't even considered yet, helped me narrow down songs that would fit best at certain points in the wedding, and scoured the internet with me searching for the perfect versions of my songs.
Now on to the important things. The day of the wedding came and like any normal wedding, we were behind schedule, but Brett made it a breeze. He made sure to check in with our wedding party to ensure they knew when to walk down the aisle, if he had to loop the music in case of delays and when I would walk. He also made sure he was on the same page with our officiant with both the music and hand held mics he provided. Our ceremony was outdoors and our reception was indoors, but that was a non issue for Encore. They set up two speakers outdoors, then when it came time to transition to the reception, he was able to set up everything in 5 minutes! As the bride, I didn't even notice where the speakers were, so it didn't ruin my vision of a beautiful outdoor scene. Everything flowed so perfectly, it felt like a dream!
The reception I wish I could do over again because it was such a blast! Brett kept the guests energized and cheering for us throughout the day and played fantastic music that everyone wanted to dance to (even those family members who claim to never dance). I had so many people tell me they didn't want to leave our wedding because it was such a fun party! The thing I will most remember about Brett is during the reception, he went to every table taking song requests, and came to the wedding party table to make sure my groom and I had a chance to eat enough before doing any other activities. These guys are the reason I would gladly do my wedding all over again, I didn't want it to end!
Dmitriy, our professional was not given a multitude of clear instruction or direction prior to our wedding, but he instantly became a hit drawing and engaging the attention of the group into a very positive and lasting reception. As the Master of Ceremony he was able to make adjustments so subtly to cater to the precise needs of every situation. His music selection was impeccable. His timing was unmatched. My only regret is letting him pack up and leave at the end of the night! If you get a chance... Ask him to break dance battle and prepare to be dazzled! Bell Bell, the owner was incredibly quick to correspond with me and set everything up. From the time I sent the first email requesting information until the deposits were paid and details ironed out was approximately 24 hours. Upon our final (in person) consultation they demonstrated some extra options to enhance the experience, which I would HIGHLY recommend. We will be using encore and Dmitriy again for our events.
OMG, DJ Harvey was great, he was really professional! You will get a COMPLETE professionalism from the get go, seriously. They were easy to work with and everything was online, from payment, songs choice, wedding tools, etc. My guests loved the songs DJ picked and everyone had a great time. Highly recommended!
Encore mobile DJs was awesome. For our wedding we had Katie for our DJ. She was sweet, pleasant, and professional. She took charge of the event and guided it along smoothly and always let us know what was coming up next. This created a seamless night. She created a terrifically fun environment and we all had a blast - she knew exactly how to create the perfect mood. She kept everyone dancing all night - we could not have been happier with her service!
Dmitriy was an instrumental part of our wedding. He acted as the MC, provided great dance music, and even entertained our guests (he is a very talented break dancer!) when there was a very brief technical difficulty. He also fixed the technical difficulty very quickly and it wasn't a trouble at all. He showed up at the venue early to make sure everything was ready to go and he indulged some of our quirkier ideas for the wedding. He encouraged us to try fun new things that we hadn't thought of ourselves (group dances where he acted as a teacher, grand entrance where he lined up all our family and friends to cheer for us, etc.). And, of course, he played excellent dance music for all ages. He even gave the mic to my 5-year-old niece, so she could do a Katy Perry sing along. I would definitely recommend Encore Mobile DJs to anyone getting married in the greater Portland area.
I would not hesitate to recommend this DJ to a friend. I cannot say enough how much we appreciated this service. Dmitriy was exceptional. He kept the party going with music that we had selected and added a few of his own songs to really step it up a notch. The music blended together well and everyone had a great time. He also did a great job of keeping the flow of the evening moving at a nice pace. He got the crowd on their feet and cheering. What a great time!
Our DJ, Scott, was FUNtastic. He was easy to work with, on time, got himself set up in a timely matter. He was very professional. He helped make the reception lots of fun. Checked with the bride and groom to make sure they were having fun. We found this vendor at a wedding show so wasn't to sure what to expect, they far exceeded our exceptions. Great music choices while getting the guests involved. The only disappointment we had was we wished there would have been a wireless mic available for the ceremony, but I am sure that would have taken some more equipment ! :)
Dimitri was our DJ and he was great. He kept the party going from the moment the reception started until the last song. There was never a time when the dance floor was empty. If you are looking for quality DJ with quality equipment who will get and keep the party going, look no further than Encore Mobile DJ's.
I can't say enough amazing things about Brett and his team. Brett was the first and only DJ we really considered for our wedding- not only was he a great value and right on budget- but I'd also heard great things about him previously. He lived up to the hype and more. He was extremely accommodating for the obscure music choices we made. He went out of his way and above and beyond to make sure we had a rocking party. I don't think I've ever seen more people on the dance floor at a wedding. The fact that he took note of funny or personal stories during the toasts and incorporated them into his music selections (i.e. the sister of the groom mentioning she used to make the groom watch and sing along to Grease with her as kids, and hearing a Grease medley during the dancing just for them). Or his surveying of guests during downtime for things that they would like to hear. Or that he brought himself and another main DJ to run things since his wife was expecting and close to her due date, in case he needed to leave in a hurry. The forethought, the attention to us as a couple and what we were interested in, just everything. I truly can't say enough.
Brett was amazing! Not only did he listen my groom and I, but he kept the party going all night. Everyone was saying how incredible the music choice was, when in fact Brett was the one making selections. We told him what genres and he went with it.
Brett had the great idea of having a dance off between girls and boys. It was an amazing idea seeing that most of the boys took their shirts off.
Even after the wedding was all said and done I later saw Brett at a function where who knew exactly who I was and even remember little details about the night that I had soon forgot. He even remembered one of my bridesmaid favorite song and then continued to play it while we were there.
I highly recommend Brett and Encore Mobile DJ! They made my day complete with non stop kick ass dancing!
I am so glad that my husband and I found Encore for our wedding! Brett was professional, responsive, and enthusiastic from the beginning. His online setup is very well organized and easy to use, and has quite a variety of music in the database. He was completely in touch with the style we wanted and listened to everything we had to say. He was also able to mix up musical genres without straying from the vibe of the celebration. He definitely knows how to warm up the crowd, and does so with the utmost professionalism. We had so many people come up to us to say that they had never been to a wedding that was such a party! We owe so much of that to Brett, and would recommend him and Encore Mobile Djs in a heartbeat. Thank you for making our wedding incredible!
Encore Mobile Dj's are great! They did a wonderful and I would hire them again!
Thank you again for making my wedding and reception so much fun!
Brett Bell is hands down the best DJ in the NW! As frequent wedding guests, we have yet to see anyone who even comes close to his caliber. One of our wedding guests said, "Man, your DJ wouldn't let us rest! We were on the dance floor all night! He wouldn't let us sit down!" We are still getting raves just like this almost a month after our wedding. Do yourselves a favor, and book Brett for every event you want to blow out of the water! You won't be disappointed!
Best DJ service ever! Our son's wedding reception was in an upscale venue, but we wanted a family friendly party. Brett did a perfect job of getting both the grown ups and children into the fun through music and games. He's versatile and professional and just a wonderful person to work with. Many friends asked how we found such a great DJ. He really made the party.
