Everything We Wanted!

Can't say enough for how amazing the night was with Derek and his music getting the party started and keeping it up all night long. Started the night off with some Disney music, getting our crowd of ~15 children on the dance floor and getting their energy way up. Worked from a small list of preferred music, blended in requests from me instantly and seamlessly. We had compliments for Derek coming in all night from all ranges of friends and family. Couldn't have asked for anything more!

Absolutely no regrets

Derek did an amazing job! I would recommend him to anybody. We received so many compliments from guests. Announcements, DJing, lighting and more Derek did the most to make sure everything went smoothly and then turned into a party!! He made it easy to trust him from our first conversation; with his experience and enthusiasm I had nothing to worry about. I can't rave enough about The Block Party. If you want one less thing to stress about choose them.

Amazing! 10/10

Derek is amazing! My guests were pointing out all night how great the mixes were, and still talk about the music at our wedding to this day! We had a group of Swifties at our wedding (myself included) and boy did he deliver. Never thought I’d hear a mashup of Bad Blood x Iron Man by Black Sabbath but it was so, so fun!

Derek was also kind enough to surprise us with a vinyl of Golden Hour by Kacey Musgraves that he used to play our first dance song. Love!

Derek is 10/10 and so easy, kind, and wonderful to work with. You won’t be disappointed!

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 :)
