    Stumptown/Jai = A+++++!

    Jai. Was. AWESOME. We had SUCH a good time getting to know him, and working with him to create the perfect wedding playlist that catered to both us as the couple (think Taylor Swift singalongs for me, and a full choreographed Eminem rap for my husband), and music that got the whole crowd up and dancing. There was seriously a conga line at one point--I thought that only happened in movies! All this is to say that Jai goes the extra mile to really understand the couple and the wedding vibe, and on the big day he absolutely killed it. We would highly, highly recommend Stumptown and Jai in particular!

    Highly Recommend!

    We hired Stumptown DJs for a wedding in November and they were amazing. The communication was strong throughout the process and they were very flexible when I added additional time to my contract (twice!).

    We worked with Jai, who did a fantastic job and was great to work with. His sample playlists for all the big moments/dances made it easy (and fun!) for us to select our songs (for walking down the aisle, first dance, father/daughter dance, etc.). Jai offered to be as involved or as hands off as we wanted. Based on our preference, we simply gave him a short list of songs we would like played and a few others that he could play if they fit in. He read the crowd and improvised, and gave us the perfect wedding. From the music at the cocktail hour, to the ceremony, to the dancing, I wouldn’t change a thing.

    We highly recommend using Jai and Stumptown for your wedding!

    Matt with Stumptown DJ's

    We had the privilege of having Matt from Stumptown DJ's provide the entertainment for our wedding this past October. Matt did more than just stand behind a table and play music! He helped put together the entire playlist (much appreciated from the worn out bride) announced dinner, toasts, etc! He organized all the music for the ceremony and provided amps/lapel microphones for the officiant. Matts wonderful personality made our event memorable and fun. He helped with ideas as well such as putting the brides garter around a football for the toss. I've been to many weddings/events and Matts one of the best I've seen! I would hire him again and plan to do so for any future events as needed.

    DJ Jai was Awesome!

    Our DJ was Jai, and we hired him for our wedding reception. Jai went above and beyond our expectations. He met with my fiance and me on multiple occasions to find out our musical tastes and to go over our timeline with us. He also asked us, if we were uncomfortable with him playing a certain style of music or specific song. We had a few things we did not want played at our reception and he took note of this, which was very considerate. Overall Jai was cool and collected every time we met with him. He was very in tune with how we were feeling, and his overall goal was to make sure that we were having the best time possible, and that all of our guests were up and dancing. He did a great job at reading what our guests wanted to dance to, and everyone had a great time out on the dance floor. He also stuck very closely to our timeline
    , even when we did not start on time, and made the announcements that we asked him to.

    Stumptown DJ is amazing!! I highly recommend them for weddings-they did an incredible job at our Oregon Coast wedding.

    Ty was an incredible DJ for our wedding in Cannon Beach, Oregon!! We had the best dance party ever and I loved every song Ty played! I highly recommend Stumptowj DJ-they are professional and friendly and know how to DJ a great party.

    Katie is fantastic!

    We are so happy we made the choice to go with Katie and Stumptown DJs for our wedding. We had a smaller reception in the event room at BridgePort Brewpub with mostly family, but Katie was still able to get people out on the dance floor. The weeks leading up to our wedding were easy as well. We had so much fun choosing songs for our playlist, and Katie was very helpful, laid back, and understood completely what we wanted. THANK YOU KATIE!

    We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience have DJ Jai with Stumptown DJs at our wedding ceremony and reception.

    Stumptown admin was super communicative on facilitating the initial coordination, paperwork, payment, and providing clear instructions for logging into their online portal for the wedding timeline and playlist. That were consistently responsive and friendly throughout the experience.

    What we really can’t say enough great things about is our DJ, Jai. Looking back now, we can’t imagine having our wedding without him. He reached out to us months before the wedding to touch base, and then scheduled time for us to meet in person and talk about our wishes for our special day. A week prior to the wedding, we did a video chat with him and went over the final changes and timeline. We were consistently blown away by how genuine and nice Jai was to work with.

    Based on our communication leading up to the wedding, our hopes were high because we came to like him so much. And on the wedding day, he blew it out of the water. He came early and even pulled a groomsman aside to conduct an extra mic check to make sure the ceremony sound was perfectly dialed. He hit all the cues for the ceremony and reception perfectly.

    Once the dance floor was open, we gave him full rein to choose songs as he saw fit. He killed it. He played an eclectic mix of songs that kept the party going all night. The dance floor was packed until the venue’s curfew. People kept coming up to us and telling us how great the DJ was. What a party.

    Simply put, it was the best day of our lives. DJ Jai was a big reason for that. We can’t say a big enough thank you!

    We worked with DJ Ty at Stumptown DJs. He was incredibly accommodating when it came to our playlist, and he took the time to talk through specific songs and questions we had. I was really impressed at how organized and personable Ty was during the wedding, too. He made sure that we were on track with our timeline, made announcements for dinner and toasts, ensured top-notch sound quality, and got our dance party started!

    I also have to give a shoutout to Matt, who was extremely professional and took the time to talk through the whole event with me. His passion about music and Stumptown DJs is apparent. Tammy was also very communicative and personable. Overall, if you're looking for an affordable, high-quality, fun DJ, I highly recommend Stumptown DJs!

    We worked with DJ Katie after she was recommended by our venue. She was incredible! Organized, helpful, full of ideas, and clearly loves her job! We had 3 separate areas for music during our event, and a few different announcements needed. She handled everything seamlessly and was always prepared. Our reception included a lot of very different songs, as per guest request, and she mixed them all together in a way that felt completely natural! I imagine that is hard to do when working with The Beatles, My Chemical Romance, Neil Young, and Tina Turner songs!
    Thanks Katie!

    We love Stumptown DJs!

    I highly recommend Stumptown DJs for your wedding or any other event! We held our ceremony and reception at Fiala Farms in West Linn. We planned from across the country, so communication was done completely via email and phone. Working with Tammy was a joy, and their online payment and contracting process made things so easy. We really enjoyed exploring their online music database where we could create our wedding timeline and different playlists in their system (i.e. pre-ceremony, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing music). When we saw a section in their timeline questionnaire titled “Songs & Genres NOT to play” along with a note that they “will not play YMCA, Celebrate, Brickhouse, or The Chicken Dance unless you specifically request it”, we knew we had made the right DJ choice. In our planning phone call, Matt was so nice and asked great questions that I hadn’t even thought of regarding the wedding timeline and what songs we wanted played for certain events. We wanted to skip a lot of the classic wedding rituals and traditions, and instead have some of our own non-traditional wedding rituals, and they were very flexible and accommodating to our preferences. I think they really understood what we were looking for in a DJ and the vibe we wanted to create for the event. There were a few songs not in their music database that we wanted, and they were able to deliver on every single one that we requested (we especially appreciated “Soul Love” by David Bowie, the bride’s processional song, “The Man in Me” by Bob Dylan as our recessional song, and “Night Life” by Willie Nelson, which ended up being the father-daughter dance). They handled everything, working with our wedding coordinator at Field and Vine Events to meet onsite prior to make sure that the logistics were taken care of. DJ Ty really nailed it! Several people mentioned later how awesome the music was at our wedding, and the dance floor was packed. He played all the songs we wanted the most on our playlist, somehow each perfectly timed, and even a few other crowd-pleasers that we forgot to include, but that got folks out on the dance floor (I had NO IDEA how much my dad and the rest of the older crowd loved the song “Shout”!). We had some last-minute changes to the father-daughter and bride and groom dances that weren’t part of the script, but Ty was so easy-going and went with the flow of it all, which is exactly how we wanted it to be. He even played the Golden Girls’ theme song I requested, for us all to drunkenly serenade each other as we parted ways at the end of the night! We could not be happier with my experience with Stumptown DJs, from start to finish, and many thanks specifically to Tammy, Matt, and DJ Ty for being so cool and fun to work with!

    Stumptown was recommended to us by our Venue and they definitely did not disappoint! Their online timeline was super helpful as well as the ability to create your own playlists for each event (Cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, etc. ) We gave them artist suggestions for cocktail hour and dinner and created a small playlist for dancing and Ty was able work off of what we gave him and he nailed it! Once the dancing started, people did not stop until our reception was over. We’re still hearing from our guests how great the music was! Very professional, great to work with before the wedding and during. Highly recommend them and Ty for your wedding!

    We couldn't be happier with the service and quality we received from Stumptown DJs! Their website and playlist/timeline systems were easy to use; the staff was incredibly responsive and helpful; and we were able to pick the perfect DJ for our wedding day! One month later, our guests are still complimenting our DJ, Jai. He was friendly, professional, fun, and very talented. He emceed our elegant ceremony and then transitioned to our more party-style reception with ease. I highly recommend DJ Jai and Stumptown DJs as a whole!

    DJ Jai did a fantastic job at our wedding and really took the time to learn what my wife and I wanted to listen to! He made sure all generations of people at the wedding were included, while adhering to the taste of music we wanted to listen to. He was very kind and professional throughout the entire performance and made sure that the ceremony went very smoothly. He also kept the dance floor packed once the night got going! Working with him was a blast and I highly recommend him for your wedding! Thanks so much Jai for making our day so memorable!

    Stumptown DJs were great! They are affordable and it was great working with Tammy, Matt, and DJ Ty. They were all very kind and professional. They set great expectations about how everything would work and I felt confident that things would turn out just the way we planned on the day of. And I was right! DJ Ty was on time to set up, perfectly timed our music, and kept the party going. He was great!

    We loved our experience with DJ Jai! He was very communicative throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. He arrived early to our wedding day, kept us updated on the timeline throughout the day. The music selection he played was perfect, and he did a great job leading our toasts. Despite our weather being cold, he kept everyone on the dance floor and played music at all our guests enjoyed and complimented us on after our big day.

    We worked with Katie Heath from Stumptown DJs for our April 2018 wedding. Katie was fabulous—warm, professional, extremely organized, and full of great ideas. We met in-person with Katie about a month before the wedding, and talked about our playlist, preferences, and timeline for the day-of. She also worked with me remotely to streamline the timeline and fill in the playlist. I trusted her immediately, and it was such a relief to head into our wedding not having to worry about a thing on the music front.

    We had a large crowd—about 200 guests—with a range of ages and backgrounds. Katie made everyone feel comfortable, and played a wonderful variety of music that both reflected and expanded on the choices we'd previously discussed. She crafted a beautiful dinner playlist, and helped us have a rollicking dance party enjoyed by all.

    I highly recommend Katie and Stumptown DJs.

    Jai was great. He really kept the dance floor alive!! We didn't have many dancers in total, but those that did really enjoyed themselves.
    He was also very responsive and really took his time to explain the wedding timeline/ flow.

    Stumptown DJs and DJ Drew were better than we coul dhave imagined. Professional, skilled and patient are just a few words to describe our experience with DJ Drew. Our event was a bit of a hodgepodge of random announcements, raffles, and demos, and throughout Drew ran the show like we practiced it all beforehand. The music selection was perfect, and I could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Stumptown and DJ Drew!

    DJ Jai and Stumptown did a fabulous job at our wedding and reception. In preparing for the big day, he was in frequent contact and we met in advance to make sure that we had a clear understanding of what we were looking for and what was important to us. (The Stumptown DJ website made that process much eaiser as well with a huge music selection to chose from). He toured our venue in advance to make sure that he new a lay of the land and made recommendations along the way.

    On the big day, he was very calm and low key (which is what we wanted). He did a great job of "reading" the situation and let certain moments continue on, while being mindful of time in other cases. He played a great selection of music thru the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing portions of the evening. He played music that matched the audience (100 people total, mostly 50 yr olds), but kept it very fun as evidenced by the dance floor being full all night (including my 83 yr old parents!). I would highly recommend DJ Jai and Stumptown DJ. First class all the way!

    DJ Casey did an excellent job at our wedding!

    DJ Casey did an incredible job with our wedding as both a DJ and an MC. He was very experienced, professional, and helpful. We picked a variety of songs from the Stumptown online database and he nailed it with the playlist and execution. The sound was great and his were transitions seamless. The process leading up to the big day was excellent as well. He is on top of things and reminded us of due dates and even helped us think through the flow of our wedding. With so many details to think about, having someone who knows the drill and can help make the evening run smoothly is a key player for your wedding. Don't skimp when it comes to picking a DJ, it will make or break your wedding. That's why we chose Casey and we were not disappointed.

    Stumptown DJ's and DJ Jai performed at our wedding and did an incredible job! We have a pretty eclectic taste in music and a whole range of generations at our wedding. While we wrote an initial song list, we told Jai to do whatever he felt would keep the dance floor going - and he succeeded. He was up beat, personable, warm and inviting and kept the music going. He understood that people would need a break and slow dances and line dances are fun to intermix. It was incredible and made our reception SO much fun! Thank you Jai! You are awesome!

    I figured I should mention the process with booking and selecting music - it was easy. We communicated through email, met Jai once before the wedding and had a phone conversation about a week before. They have a neat online system where you can add all of the different songs you want, where you want them as well as a timeline that tells the DJ what is happening and when - it's perfect!
