A DJ that can throw a great party
Derek from Block Party was a fantastic DJ and helped us throw a kick ass party for our wedding. Yesterday was our 1 year anniversary, and we spent it dancing around our house to the recording of our wedding dance party set that he DJed for us. He is super professional, hardworking and reliable, but also kind and excellent person. He went beyond what we could have hoped for, and even gave us a framed record of our first dance song. We had some special requests (including rehearsal dinner karaoke), and he made our vision a reality. Block Party's pricing is fair and totally transparent -- no extra fees or nickel and dime charges for extra services. And, while they wasn't the cheapest option we looked at, the Block Party felt like a total bargain given the quality of service we got. I cannot recommend them highly enough.Sent on 04/28/2020

Derek was our wedding DJ
Amazing! He listened to us, gave amazing advice. He paid attention to the party and what was going on. Zero dead time. Great transitions between songs. Amazing to work with and super accommodating.Sent on 10/26/2019

An Excellent Dancing and Gaming Explosion!
Derek was recommended by a friend and co-worker who knew that I was starting to look for vendors for my wedding. I can say, without a doubt, that without Derek, our wedding would never have been the smash hit it was!
Right from the get-go, Derek was very responsive and extremely excited to help make our wedding the style of wedding that we and our guests could enjoy. He helped us with both our ceremony and reception. My wife and I have more unique tastes in music, so we provided some examples of music we personally enjoyed and gave Derek free reign to mix and sample songs at will. Derek was fantastic at the DJ table all night and our guests loved his work, along with us.
One special request we had, that was not music related, was to add a more personal touch of mine and my wife’s personality into our reception. This touch of personality was to setup video game stations in our reception hall (opposite the dance floor) and have multiplayer video games (Mario Kart) available for our guests who may not be as up for, or just needed a break from dancing. Derek went above and beyond to help us craft the perfect setup for our gaming stations and they were a huge hit with our families and friends!
Throughout the entire process, Derek was extremely responsive and helpful! Never at any point we were concerned that the music and games we had planned would not turn out amazing. We can’t thank Derek enough for helping create great memories of our wedding day that will last us a lifetime!Sent on 12/22/2019
Derek is awesome at what he does, and he will keep the party going all night. You can tell the time and care he puts into each event. At our last wedding I couldn't stop singing or dancing along myself and I'm the wedding photographer :)
The best DJ in the business...hands down!
