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.
First and foremost, Brett Bell is one of the most professional people I have ever worked with. My wedding coordinator provided me Brett's name, and although is was a little more expensive (only $50 more) than the other potential DJ's, he was the only one who submitted a proposal of what he offers. I liked that because I was able to see exactly what I was going to get.
His website was easy to manuever through, and I liked the fact that I was able to request songs ahead of time. What was even more fun, was that my guests were allowed to request songs that they wanted to hear too.
My fiance' /now husband and I met with Brett 5 days before the wedding. What a terrific experience! He listened to what we wanted, and he delivered the day of my wedding reception. Our crowd was over 40 years of age, and that was the music he played. I told Brett that I wanted a "fun" event, and that is what he delivered. He wasn't a passive DJ, he commanded the floor, and got everybody up and dancing, he got everybody up and participating. What an incredible night! I am not the only one to think so, I have had guest after guest say that my wedding was the best they have ever been too, that they had so much fun, and that the atmosphere was energetic. It was fantastic, and thanks to Brett, an evening, I can only hope to repeat one day!
Brett knows how to keep the party alive! With all of the different types of music requests that we had, Brett was able to transition from one to another in a way that kept everything moving. Slow,country,funky and rockin', all in it's proper time. AMAZING!!!! He even got out on the dance floor and showed us all how to slide dance. Very professional and in touch with the mood/vibe of the reception party. I would reccomend him for any & every event that requires a dj.
