    Absolutely incredible !!!!!

    I don’t know if words can ever be enough to describe how amazing working with Derek at The Block Party was. From our first conversation we knew he would understand exactly what were looking for and he definitely delivered. I am still getting messages weeks later from guests about how amazing the music / party was. Derek took our very eclectic music taste and he ran with it. It was exactly what I imagined for our wedding day. Everything was perfect. Don’t think I left the dance floor one time. Would definitely recommend!!!!!

    Do not hesitate. Book The Block Party

    The Block Party is hands down the best DJ you can use at your wedding. They listen beforehand, are very normal people not trying to pinch pennies out of a couple already budgeting every part of their wedding, are upfront about what they can do and recommendations, read the room during your wedding and so much more. We had countless individuals at our wedding comment on how great of a DJ The Block Party is. At the very least, reach out to the Block Party and see what they can do for you. I sincerely think you're going to be blown away.

    Above and Beyond Our Expectations!

    One of the desires for our wedding was an intimate gathering with close family and friends. We wanted the wedding day to be celebration. Despite the stress of planning a wedding during COVID, our day was just as we dreamed— actually above and beyond!

    Derek Hall from DJ Block Party was one of the pivotal factors in helping to make our day amazing! From the initial interview where he was not only friendly, but listened to our vision, preferences, and music styles, my then fiancé and I felt confident Derek would do an amazing job.

    He came up a day early to help us with our rehearsal since he was DJ’ing the ceremony music. He was flexible as we made minor changes the day before and worked closely with us to make sure he understood the schedule of events.

    On the wedding day, he handled our ceremony music where we had three very different songs; yet, he managed to have them flow well.

    And he was outstanding with not only handling the major things like keeping the music amped up and celebratory, but the other aspects like pronouncing all of our wedding party’s names correctly, announcing the speeches, and flowing with our tango as the first dance and the special first dances, to moving to the tent from the barn for the dancing.

    He kept the party going on the dance floor, playing great tunes that encouraged guests to show off their moves along with played the three special requests my husband and I wanted.

    Our guests raved about how he was one of the best DJ’s they’ve experienced and how he helped make the wedding intimate and fun. We couldn’t agree more!

    Actually, my brother commented that you’d thought he (Derek) was a family friend because he personalized the special moments like when he introduced the Father of the Bride speech. Those little touches weren’t lost on us, and helped make our wedding feel very intimate.

    I’ve attended over ten weddings in the past few years and none of those DJ’s could compare to Derek. He blew them all out of the water! Highly recommend!

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 :)
