They were very kind and helpful thought the process of picking music. They answered all our questions. The day of the wedding everything went very smoothly and to plan!
To start off my wife and I fought for several months about whether we were going to have a band or a DJ, lets just say Rich and Parties Alive helped me win my first argument as husband/wife. We met with Rich (owner) and Greg(DJ) a few times before the wedding and every time they were more than accommodating, and gave great song recommendations when we couldn't decide. They were not pushy in any way, nor did they try selling us additional add-ons that they knew we did not want( these were some of the issues our friends ran into when booking a DJ). We explained to Rich and Greg everything that we wanted and we never had one complaint. We gave them a playlist consisting of about 60 songs ( a typical wedding has around 120 songs) and just by looking at it for only a few moments Greg was able to figure out exactly the style of music we were looking for.
The night of the wedding multiple guests kept coming up to my wife and myself telling us how great the DJ was. They had the dance floor packed throughout the entire evening, which is exactly what we wanted. We've been to weddings where DJ's talk way too much on the microphone, or make the guests play games. Rich and Greg did none of that, they kept the music going from the beginning all the way to the end, making it the best night ever. A few guests made a request, and Rich came straight to my wife asking if the songs were okay, which we were very happy with (of course we said yes). Greg's playlist was incredible, and Rich as the MC was exactly on point.
For anyone looking to book a DJ who really listens to what you want for your wedding, Parties Alive is the way to go. We look forward to booking our next event with them!!
Thanks so much Kevin, it was an honor being selected to be such an integral part of your wedding celebration. I'm so glad that we were able to help make some beautiful memories. Best wishes!
Greg was our DJ/MC for our wedding and he did an awesome job! He was very pleasant and accommodating while deciding on music to be played during the ceremony and cocktail hour, etc. he had a lot of music to choose from to get ideas, and was more than happy to download anything he didn't have. During the wedding he played a great variety of music to dance to and had a great energy to him. I received many compliments from my guests regarding the music selection, and Greg! I couldn't have been happier with Greg and Parties Alive and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a great time with great music to get everyone moving! Thanks so much Greg and Parties Alive you made our wedding so much fun!!
We got married on July 25, 2015 and we hired Parties Alive to be our D.J. -They were FANTASTIC!! It was the best decision we made for our wedding! Rich and Greg make a fabulous team. From the moment we met them, we knew that we wanted them at our wedding. They are professional, knowledgeable, talented, and hardworking. They responded to all of our questions and met with us on several occasions to help plan our special day. They played all of the music we wanted and did everything perfectly! Our guests are still calling us to tell us how fabulous they were! Many of our friends have said that it was the best wedding they have attended mostly because of the music! Rich was our MC and Greg was the DJ. They dressed professionally and looked great! Rich spoke very well and knew what to do every step of the way. Greg knew how to read the crowd and play the appropriate songs to keep everyone dancing. We also used a zap photographer (Dan) through Parties Alive and he did a great job taking pictures/video clips of our party and then live streaming it on the big screens- Our guests loved that! Parties Alive also created a photo montage for us using photos from our childhood, dating years etc. The montage was very well done and our guests loved it!! We also used Parties Alive to rent lounge furniture for our venue and it looked beautiful! We loved everything that we hired them for and they made us so happy with their services. Our wedding was special to us for many reasons...and Parties Alive is one of the main reasons why it was so special. We would highly recommend them to anybody who is looking for entertainment.

Ari and Jacklyn (wedding couple) looooved it. Parents of bride and groom looooved it. Guests loved them too, especially the percussionists! But everyone was wonderful. We wouldn't change a thing. We used you from another wedding my parents attended--Eric and can't remember; Labor Day weekend wedding--and was even more fabulous! Thank you!!!!!
This DJ company partiealive is Amazing. They went above and beyond .Played Great music had everyone one the dance floor all night long .I would recommend them to everyone i know.
The DJ services we received for our wedding were the best we've ever experienced. I would highly recommend this DJ to anyone!!!!!!!
Greg and Rich were so helpful and available with all my music concerns. I am still getting compliments from my guest about how amazing the music was.
From the moment I met Rich I knew Parties Alive was the perfect entertainment company for our Wedding day. During our engagement, Rich and his team were really responsive to all our questions and requests. Words CAN NOT express just how amazing our wedding was and it was so AMAZING because of Parties Alive! They literally rocked our wedding from start to finish. Rich is the most amazing MC and Justin on the percussion was incredible! Even my 83 year old Nana told me she enjoyed watching him. I never had so much fun dancing in my life. Everyone was having the time of their lives which was so amazing to watch. They played music everyone liked- that’s skill! I would recommend using them in a heartbeat. I will be using them in the future as well!
AMAZING!!! My sister used them for her wedding and they were awesome. They were just as awesome for my wedding. Greg was my DJ and Sean was the MC. Whenever I emailed or called them they were very responsive. I wanted a party atmosphere with top 40 and no cheesy line dances and they did everything I asked.
They were so much fun and were great at reading the crowd and keeping the party going all night. Every single person told me how awesome the DJ and the playlist were. And the were very reasonable priced. Definitely could not recommend them enough!!!
The one thing I wanted was for everyone to be up and dancing the whole night! They succeeded in fulfilling this task. They even went above and beyond by helping my maid of honor with her amazing speech/rap and the performance that I did not know about with my mom and the brides maids. Thank you so much for making my night an amazing one! I do have a piece of advice for brides... please please let your DJ be the DJ and don't provide them with a list of songs they must play. Let them feel the crowd and work their magic (that is why you paid them isn't it?)
My Husband and I got married this past Friday (7/4/14), and we cannot say enough good things about Parties Alive. They were PHENOMENAL. The dance floor was packed all night, without the MC (Greg) ever being pushy or annoying. The DJ read the crowd and played the right music at the right time, ALL NIGHT! Everyone still keeps calling and messaging me how great the DJ company was and asking who we used. Even before the day of, their customer service was stellar, we booked with Rich the owner, and we loved him, then any questions we sent over to them was quickly answered, no problems. I really truly recommend them to any bride, great service, and an overall great company!
My wife and I just got married last month and had Parties Alive provide the music along with percussion, saxophone, video montage, live streaming still shots, monogram lighting, white package and photo booth. They are definitely a top notch company and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone getting married. From the minute we met with Rich we felt comfortable and clicked with him. The entire planning process went great....we met with Rich a few times, gave him our song selections, bounced questions and ideas off of him and ended up with the perfect event. We were very particular about certain aspects of the wedding and both Rich and the DJ did a fantastic job of catering to our wants immediately.
The live percussion and saxophone added a nice live element to the music, and the video montage was fantastic!! Our guests had a blast with the photo booth and the live streaming still shots that were displayed constantly on the screens throughout the wedding were awesome. The DJ played an excellent mix and had the whole place dancing the entire time.
There was not one single thing that we were unhappy with and I seriously cannot say enough positive things about Parties Alive. Their price was right and their service was even better. We could not have been more pleased.
Parties Alive is the best DJ/MC you will ever find! They made our wedding so special! We have such an array taste in musical style. We were so specific with our ceremony music, and even the bridal party entrance music, that it is usually difficult for DJs to interpret and portray. DJs still has to do their job to entertain your guests, it's not just about what songs you like! Your music sets the tone and the scene for your wedding. Not only did Parties Alive did a beautiful job in accommodating my vision, they also used their professional judgement to keep my audience, which included senior citizens as well as young kids, captivated ALL day, from the very beginning of the ceremony, all the way through the very end of the reception. They are such a professional looking bunch, they don't need cheesy one liners or terrible music. If you are lucky enough to get Rich as your MC, he is so classy and entertaining. Gregg the DJ understands music as well as our music, that he knew the timing of certain songs in order to keep the crowd interested, and Chip the singer was the perfect icing on the cake : ) He had my guests of all ages loving him ! He is such a wonderful singer! I cannot write enough how much I loved Parties Alive, my guests loved them so much they regretted not having Parties Alive at their own wedding !
I could not have imagined our wedding with any other DJ company! Rich at Parties Alive in Deer Park was absolutely phenomenal. All of our requests were met and exceeded. The night went flawlessly and he effortlessly directed us through our cake ceremony, first dance, bouquet toss and garter toss.
Our guests did not stop dancing the entire night and they really played an excellent mix. There was a little something for everyone. I highly recommend using this vendor for your next event.
Parties Alive Entertainment did a Fabulous job at our wedding. They Made the Party come Alive in Every way. My Guess had a Ball, We had a ball and Our Wedding was an altogether Great Time because of the Fantastic Job done by Parties Alive. We have gotten so much positive feedback about the Music, Photo montage Zip Pictures and the Light Show. The Wedding Singer Steel drum Player Congo Player Stave and the rest of the Team did everything they could to en sure that the Party/Wedding was JUMPING! When we look at the Video everyone was on the Dance Floor even folks in our family who don't normally dance. We Thank You Parties Alive for helping to make our Wedding a Success! You guys really Delivered. Horace and Carol McDougan
