    Blackwell Sound & Entertainment was, in a word, OUTSTANDING! Highly professional. Great flexibility and adaptability. Most of all execution with an artistic flair.

    Originally booked this vendor, very nice and attentive. I chose to use a DJ that was familiar with our venue for convenience. Eric was understanding--although I was not refunded my deposit as to be expected per policy, respectfully the waiver for cancellation fee was granted. I am certain DJ Eric is competent at his services as exemplified in reviews. Good luck to future weddings. All the best.

    Blackwell Soundz & Entertainment LLC's reply:

    This particular client notified our company of cancellation due to the fact they found a better and more convenient option. They did not cancel for any other reason than that. They gave advanced notice but then expected a refund of their deposit. Once I reviewed our policy with the client and client was notified that under the contract deposits are nonrefundable, I then received several emails and then this review. In addition there is a cancellation fee that I waived. Wedding Wire provides an excellent personalized client portal that allows for 24/7 access which comes directly to my phone. It is unfortunate that as vendors we are open to the possibility of customers feeling unsatisfied but in my opinion this is not one of those situations. We cannot return deposits simply because you change your mind.

    Eric was wonderful to work with. It was complete chaos while I was getting ready everyone was late, things were not working out at all. He was so calm and kept telling me everything would be okay. He took some great pictures, had some great ideas. He mingled very well with my family. He was responsive
    to all my messages, phone calls, meetings and all my request. I will absolutely work with him again and refer him to whoever I can!

    Eric is very nice & super patient with me when I didn't understand something. He did everything I wanted him to do & more. I was so surprised when he got on the dance floor & started dancing with us. I've never seen anything like that before, I'm glad he got to enjoy himself as well. I will for sure be using Blackwell if I ever need a DJ again!

    Eric was so laid back and was just the type of DJ that I wanted for our wedding. He was very affordable and was such a sweet guy. We met him two days before the wedding and he explained exactly how the day would go, how attentive he would be to our needs throughout the night and he definitely delivered. Throughout the night, he checked in with us a few times to make sure we were happy or wanted anything changed and was very adaptive to the crowd. He brought his son Junior who was such a great guy too and was very welcome. If you are looking for a vendor that is reliable, relaxed, and doesn't require extra work to get a great outcome, I would definitely recommend Eric to you.

    DJ Eric was amazing. I mean it when I say, once the floor was open, it was never empty. We had older guests and younger guests, and that is hard to accommodate! I always hoped my wedding would be a PARTY, and it was thanks to DJ Eric! He is also so nice! I felt so relaxed knowing the party was in good hands while my husband and I went around greeting guests and couldn't attend to the party. I have been to a few weddings where the DJ is obnoxious and steals the show, but DJ Eric was professional and fun! My parents also have been raving about him, and their taste is SO different from mine! We wouldn't have gone with any other DJ, and we didn't even meet him prior to our reception!

    This couple along with their family and friends made sure they enjoyed themselves. Mimi was organized from the beginning to the end. Working with the wonderful staff at the Sewickley Heights Golf Club made things even easier. Great parents, great food, great weather and I was fortunate to be asked to celebrate with everyone. I wish you both the very best!

    Eric did a wonderful job with our wedding! Eric was very flexible with our schedules. His photography services were phenomenal beginning with our engagement photo shoot and ending with our wedding photos. He also provided videography, which turned out great. The quality of his photos and video was excellent. The pricing/packages that he provides is very reasonable. My husband and I thank Eric for his professionalism and recommend his services to anyone who is looking for great quality at a great price.

    Eric was the perfect DJ for my daughter's wedding. Several of our guests commented on how good he was. He was very adaptable to anything the couple suggested and was never thrown when they wanted to depart from the norm. He kept the energy going without being over the top or annoying himself (unfortunately a problem we have encountered with other wedding DJs!) He was a total professional and exercised great judgment about which songs on the couple's playlist to pay at what time, and made any announcements we asked for. He welcomed our use of a jazz saxophonist for the first dance and had no trouble finding a somewhat uncommon jazz standard for the father daughter dance, and did a great job with the hora. All this for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

    This young couple got married in the rain (under a tent) but in the rain. The smiled, they danced, they did not let rain bother them at all. This is why I do what I do.

    Eric was very accommodating--he was willing to use our specific music, but is also willing to make choices in the moment based on your crowd. We met with him multiple times upon our request and he was very flexible in scheduling the face to face time. We had a great time with Blackwell Soundz!

    I would highly recommend Blackwell Soundz and Entertainment. We have contracted with them twice in 10 months for DJ and sound system setups. Blackwell Soundz was extremely professional and timely; they arrived well before sound check. When the venue's sound system failed, Blackwell Soundz already had backup ready to go! And, they went above and beyond their contracted work. One member of the team assisted us with unloading and loading our car! Our event was held in Hopewell Township (an area that I am not very familiar with). The BSE team was kind enough to led us back toward the Pittsburgh airport area. I'll only contract with Blackwell Soundz for future DJ and sound needs.

    Many thanks,
    M. Ann Starkey

    We are so glad that we chose to go with Blackwell Soundz! DJ Eric Blackwell was absolutely amazing! His company was very professional from the start, and always available via email, text, or phone when we had any questions. Our reception was outside in a winery's garden, so we were a little worried about whether this would affect DJ Eric's ability to spin for us. It did not. We danced all night, non stop, and received a ton of compliments on how much fun people had. After the wedding, we said that if we ever need a DJ for anything else, we're calling DJ Eric.
