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!Sent on 08/01/2020
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!

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

Best DJ I’ve ever heard
I can’t speak highly enough of Derek and the Block Party. Derek is an incredible DJ, who just has the it factor for getting everyone going on the dance floor. Everyone raves about him afterwards, regardless of age or taste in music. Extremely friendly, accommodating, and understanding as well. 10/10, highly recommend, he’s a no brainer in my opinionSent on 11/12/2020
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!
