Rick is amazing to work with! I liked that I could create a list of Must Play songs so I could make sure certain ones got played. It also helped to chat with him before the big day so we were on the same page on the 'vibe' we wanted for the wedding. He is very responsive to emails and very accommodating to any strange music requests. He has a great sense of humor and knows when to talk and when to let the people dance!

We had a phenomenal experience working with Rick and Sam. They were both incredibly professional and easy to work with, and their online software made planning simple and straight-forward. Sam went above and beyond to provide everything we needed for the wedding and to make it personal, without being overbearing. We are so grateful to them for such a wonderful experience!

We hired Rick to DJ our August 15, 2015 wedding and could not have asked for a better experience. I don't remember the dance floor being empty at any point in the night and my husband and I only stopped dancing when people pulled us away for photos/conversation. He was extremely professional and easy to get in touch with from our first contact with him and through the entire process. Rick's prices were extremely affordable at every level and he seems to cater to every style/taste of music. He has an awesome online event planning system which allowed us to request 'Must Play', 'Play if you can' and 'Do not play' songs. The online system also allowed us to make online payments and had lists of the most requested songs for each moment of the night (ie. overall most requested, mother/son dance, father/daughter dance, garter toss, last dance, etc.). This was extremely helpful, especially when it came to about a week before our wedding and we hadn't even considered that we needed a song for garter toss/cake cutting/bouquet toss. My husband is Persian and we were able to give Rick some Persian songs on a flash drive, which he incorporated at just the right time. Rick also had a video session with us a couple weeks out to get us on the right page and was in constant communication with us when he needed to be, but he didn't bombard us with emails or calls when we didn't get back to him immediately. Planning a wedding from afar while working our regular jobs was stressful and we really appreciated this! Overall, we would recommend Rick to anyone getting married in the area. We didn't want the party to end!

Rick is one of only three DJs I recommend on a consistent basis. Unlike many vendors you will hire this day, the quality of a DJ's work is revealed when it could be too late: the day of your wedding. For this reason, Rick is at the top of a very short list of quality DJ's who have the professionalism, personality, fun, and awareness of the diverse music scene to not only keep a party going, but make sure that it is one to be remembered by all.
