Easy to work with and fair price
DJ Nate is professional, but laid back and receptive. I know wedding planning can be a lot, but he really tries to listen to what you and your significant other want out of his services. His website is super helpful in gathering a list of up to a 100 songs that you wish to play at your wedding. Also, he can take requests from your guests with a specialized link that you can look through and add to your overall list for the big day. He plays what you want, which was huge for us. I have heard from other people that some DJ's control the music without listening to the couples personal styles or preferences. DJ Nate told us upfront that he was going to work with us to give us what we wanted, which was reassuring. He gave us extra options to add to our total package, but was not pushy about them. He definitely made us feel at ease with one of the most important parts of our wedding. He also communicated how he will make all the music flow so that we knew what we could look forward to. He chose the overall order of songs being played for us and did a fantastic job. A majority of our guests (young and old) commented on how well he did all night. Overall, price was extremely reasonable and affordable, he is easy to work with and laid back, music selection is vast and even if you have specific requests, he will find them for you. Lastly, He made sure to get exact times for when certain songs needed to be played and for how long. He made sure to write down every detail that needed to be covered for the big day and delivered on everything he promised. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great DJ. Thanks again DJ Nate!Sent on 02/02/2020

best dj around!
First and foremost ... I can not recommend DJ Nate enough! Given the absolute insanity that has been planning, re-planning and re-planning again a wedding in 2020... his flexibility and easygoing nature was exactly what we needed (and pricing is MORE than fair based on my convos with other DJs over the past year!) I contacted him pretty late in the game, when we realized we really DID need a DJ for our minimony. He was prompt, professional and understanding about the unique situation this year has put couples in.Sent on 11/17/2020
We sent him a giant spotify playlist with a VERY eclectic array of songs that we had put together ourselves (back when we were negligently going to try to do it all on our own). He was not only willing, but excited to be introduced to our mix of country, power metal and action movie theme songs.
Most impressively... he worked our entire array into the evening! I don't know how you actually effectively jump around that mix of musical types, but he managed to do it. He even played my bridesmaid's favorite song twice since one of them ran to the bathroom the first time around.
We are so grateful to have chosen DJ Nate, he truly was one of the best decisions we made!

Outstanding DJ - Best Value Available
We had an outstanding experience with DJ Nate and we would recommend him to anyone. He offers terrific service at a reasonable price, so if you want a DJ who will maximize your value then look no further.Sent on 10/19/2020
Our wedding had about 40 guests with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. Nate coordinated with us over the phone and adhered to every song we provided, playing the right song at the right time. Many of our guests complimented us on the music afterwards. He arrived at 8 am to set up at both locations, which he was very gracious about (other DJs wanted to charge us double or hire a second DJ), and stayed until the reception concluded at 3 pm. DJ Nate was professional, fun, reliable, responsive, and a choice that we are so glad we made. In other words, he is everything one could want in a DJ and you cannot go wrong with him.
Terrace DJ's reply:Thanks Ryan and Amanda for the glowing review! I had so much fun working with you to craft the perfect ceremony and ceremony for you both, the special songs that surprised your family and friends were amazing. All the Best!

Easy to Work with Change Until the Last Minute
Terrace DJ was the best DJ we could hope for to preside over our wedding. He was very easy to work with and was able to round out a few very complete different music genres into a perfect playlist for the evening. Also, he has a Request by Text system for our current social distance situation and it worked out perfectly, allowing people to request the songs they want without needing to get up from their table. He was very nice and was able to get any song we asked for and met every request we had prior to the wedding. I couldn't have asked for anything better.Sent on 10/06/2020
Terrace DJ's reply:Thanks David for the great review! I’m glad your expectations were met and I really enjoyed being an integral part of your special day. Congrats again and all the best to you both!

Everything we wanted
Working with Nate exceeded our expectations at every juncture. He made sure every detail we talked about was included in spades and constantly checked in with us throughout our night to make sure everything was to our liking. We can't recommend him enough for an intuitive and seamlessly custom fit DJ experience!Sent on 10/31/2019

Super nice, responsive, thoughtful
Had a great experience with Nate! The wedding was just great--he kept people dancing on a hot night, made a great flow from our music requests (even the Hamilton remixes which must've seemed kind of weird), and was a nice friendly, non-intrusive presence on the mic. We booked him for ceremony sound as well which was a challenging setup, off in the woods with no power; I saw him working VERY hard to get everything set up, and everything sounded just great. And he was just so wonderful to work with through the planning process too--we were planning a wedding from across the country so we could only talk on the phone at weird hours, and we made some changes to the wedding time, and he cheerfully worked around our schedules. Such a smooth, pleasant process throughout. Hire him, he's great!Sent on 07/23/2019

Wonderful experience with Terrace DJ!
I would highly recommend Terrace DJ for your wedding! We worked with DJ Nate and from the time we had our first phone call with him I knew he was our guy.

The best DJ around!!!!
DJ Nate was the perfect DJ for our recent wedding. Starting from the beginning during our introductory call, we knew we'd be in good hands. He took lots of time to answer all of our questions and was later very prompt answering emails where we had more questions. We had a great call a few weeks before the wedding that put my husband and I at total ease!Sent on 05/28/2019
The wedding went off without a hitch largely thanks to DJ Nate. The music was perfect--exactly what we asked for. The ceremony was perfect with the mics he provided and during cocktail hour and the reception the music continued to be amazing! If you want a DJ who will work with you to do exactly what YOU want, DJ Nate is your man. I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with him and the job he did at our wedding to make it so unforgettable!!!
Vicki Drici · Married on 05/18/2019
10/10 highly recommend!!
From the moment we booked Nate for our wedding, working with him went perfectly. The DJ was one of the most important wedding day details for us - we love good music across many genres, our guests love to sing and dance, and we did NOT want the stereotypical/cheesy wedding DJ. Nate was EXACTLY as we hoped. His music selection was great, the dance floor had great energy. He assisted with the flow of the night through announcements, but there was absolutely no cheesy MC'ing. I can't say enough how much Nate paid attention to our personal requests, and fully thought out every detail. Nate also did the audio set up for our ceremony, and even went the extra mile on researching the ceremony area to have the optimal speaker positions so they were not intrusive in pictures. Bottom line - Nate made our wedding night the party we always dreamed of. 10/10 highly recommend!!Sent on 06/01/2019

Unique DJ Who Provides Everything You Want (And Leaves Out What You Hate!)
DJ Nate was everything I had hoped for in a DJ - while I knew I wanted to have a DJ for our wedding, I was apprehensive of having someone who focused on playing classic wedding songs, fulfilling guest song requests, and loved hearing their own voice on the mic. But none of those fears came to life with Nate: he met my husband and I in-person to get a feel for our musical tastes, the flow we imagined for the entire night, and the vibe we were looking for, and when the day came he hit everything spot on. I struggled to get off the dance floor to say hi to guests because every single song he played was right up my alley - I felt like he completely heard me and the type of music I wanted and totally delivered (I did not provide him with an exact playlist, but rather a list of artists and songs we loved along with a few "must-plays" and of course some "do not plays"). Lastly, Nate was incredibly responsive to emails and phone calls during the entire process leading up to our wedding, and was very professional throughout the entire night. I cannot recommend him enough!Sent on 10/09/2019

A joy to work with nate!
I highly recommend Nate from TerraceDJ! The entry, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception dance sets were all truly perfect. He even worked with us to create some custom mixed tracks that were amazing! We really could not be happier. The songs, sound quality, volume, and extra lights were on point. He was dream to work with. We gave some really detailed lists, notes and song suggestions via Google Docs and he diligently commented on and helped us create the wedding music and ambiance that we wanted. He gave great professional feedback but allowed us to set the track lists as much as we wanted. This does not happen with all DJ's as many like to take control of all the music. Nate was very collaborative and let us drive the ship as much as we were comfortable. BUT we couldn't have done it without his help, song editing, and creative input. THANK YOU! We have nothing negative to say and are happy to be able to support him with a 5 star review.Sent on 12/19/2018
Morgan Wang · Married on 11/02/2018
DJ Nate was by far the most friendly and professional DJ that we spoke to during our search for our wedding. He's extremely organized and very experienced. After our initial phone call, our fears were laid to rest and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. DJ Nate is a great listener and took a variety of song requests including songs that contemporary, hip-hop, and even some that were in Chinese. He has an extensive list of songs for you to choose from to put together you perfect playlist. Ahead of the wedding, he went through our timeline with us along with suggestions on timing and songs. He also made sure to pronounce everyone's names correctly and some of those names were tougher to pronounce in Chinese and Japanese.Sent on 11/06/2018
I'd definitely recommend DJ Nate to anyone who wants a fuss-free night of partying and dancing!
Valerie Park-Welty · Married on 10/06/2018
DJ Nate was perfect as our wedding DJ! Communication with him was very easy, he always acted very professionally, and his prices were very reasonable. We were able to put together a list of songs we had to hear during our reception, and also a list of songs we absolutely didn't want to hear (Macarena, The Electric Slide, etc.) At the reception, he did a perfect job of reading the crowd to mix together the songs we requested with his own choices to keep the party going. We would 10/10 recommend him for your wedding!Sent on 01/14/2019

DJ Nate was the BEST DJ ever. He was so flexible and accommodating with last minute changes and he stayed professional and attentive the entire time we worked with him. At some point he was receiving input from myself, my husband, and my mother-in-law, and he managed to meet everyone's expectations while navigating a lot of different opinions. He also showed up early to our wedding to make sure he was ready on time. DJ Nate played the songs that we requested and also played songs that got people on the dance floor. Not to mention, he was affordable! I would highly recommend him, and you should totally book him!Sent on 10/01/2018

Book dj nate now
I don't know where to begin! First and foremost, book DJ Nate for your wedding ASAP! My fiancé(now husband) and I were looking for a DJ that was not your typical, "gaudy, corny, and obnoxious" wedding DJs these days. He was professional, organized, accommodating, and easy to talk to.Sent on 10/17/2018
Our first initial "meet-up" was through the phone. He listened to all our suggestions and helped plan our reception timeline to the T. His recommendations were spot on when we were unsure of things. His website was also easy to use. It helped us to start up the wedding reception program, add songs we loved( and hated lol), and everything else you can think of while planning the reception program. He was also very prompt with answering back emails and phone calls. He even took his time to ask us how to properly pronounce ALL the bridal entourage's full names(Filipino last names are a little tricky when it comes to proper pronunciation, and he nailed it during the reception!). Guests came up to me and said his voice was perfect! They liked how HE WAS NOT obnoxiously screaming through the mic to hype up the crowd. He let his music do the "talking."
My husband and I danced the night away. Our dance floor was full the entire time, and this is not an exaggeration. Our full wedding video without a doubt showed how everyone was on the dance floor enjoying themselves. We are VERY PICKY with our music, and DJ Nate literally played all the songs we wanted. DJ Nate did an absolute amazing job with our reception music. Seriously guys, book him for your wedding/event. We cannot recommend DJ Nate from Terrace DJ enough. THANK YOU, THANK YOU NATE!
Alli · Married on 08/18/2018
We found Nate via a wedding blog for non-cheesy DJ's. Nate had a nice website with mixes for house music, and we found a good pick. Nate is really flexible, easy to work with, and an overall nice guy. We have similar music tastes, which made the work really easy. Nate was superbly prepared with power, mics, speakers, etc. and we couldn't ask for more. Nate paired with my brother-in-law to do an acoustic guitar set and we were really pleased how that turned out. Nate was a great price and we would recommend him for any wedding. His lighting package was also nice. Payment was easy. Nate also can read a crowd well, and got everybody dancing the entire night. We couldn't be happier how that turned out.Sent on 08/22/2018

Great DJ - Great value
DJ Nate was awesome! He was super helpful in sussing out exactly what we wanted, and he listened to our vibe and what we were going for. He wasn't hokey or cheesy, which was important to us, and he didn't budge when bucked some trends and banned certain songs from our reception. Exactly what we were looking for in a DJ!Sent on 12/17/2018

We planned our wedding from abroad and were initially worried about how communication would be working with our vendors but from the first contact with Nate our worries were brushed aside! Nate was super quick to respond to all (there were many) of our questions and at the same time was super professional making sure to ask us all the right questions to be sure we were on the same page. When we finally landed in Philly, Nate went out of his way to make sure he met with us and see the space before the big day. During the planning process he guided us and took all of our wishes to heart and was able to find every song we requested--even the ones in Swedish! On the wedding day he made sure the right music was being played at the right times, took extra care to pronounce everyone's names correctly, and not take up any time on the mic (besides necessary announcements, of course). All of these things combined with the planning on Nate's side made it to be an amazing night!! We are so so pleased with our experience with Nate and highly recommend him! If you have the opportunity, book Terrace DJ for your wedding or any special event, you will be glad you did!!Sent on 05/23/2018

We are so glad we chose Terrace DJ to DJ our Material Culture wedding this April! Nate was so easy to work with. My fiance and I are very particular about the music we wanted played at our wedding and like most other couples on here, wanted a DJ who could create a playlist which reflected our individuality and specific tastes. We felt confident from the first consultation at a local bar that Nate would be able to segue from 60's soul to indie rock to new wave and current dance music in a way which felt organic and seamless. At every step of the planning process he remained friendly, calm, and professional. The rates were transparent and completely reasonable and the DJ Intelligence software was fun and easy to use and alleviated any fears we had about weird requests or cheesy wedding dance songs creeping into the mix. He even downloaded and purchased songs we requested which weren't in his database. When the classical guitarist we had planned on having play during the ceremony canceled at the very last minute DJ Nate calmly assured us that it wouldn't be a problem and was able to take over without a hitch. His presence and announcements during the wedding were calm and assured and completely professional ... no wedding cheese to be found. The entire process couldn't have been smoother and best of all our friends and family stayed on the dance floor the entire night! Would wholeheartedly recommend Terrace DJs and DJ Nate to any couple, rest assured you will be in the best of hands.Sent on 04/29/2018

Nate was the perfect DJ for our outdoor September wedding. From the very beginning he was very professional, accommodating, and detail oriented. I never had to mention anything twice, which is a lifesaver when you are working with so many people to coordinate your own wedding!
He arrived on time on the day of, coming early to check out the space-- making sure he had adequate equipment, etc. His equipment is also aesthetically pleasing so it blends into the dance floor area. A few days before, he even asked about the wedding colors so he could dress in appropriate attire. A thoughtful detail that makes a difference for me! He even offered to help with set up since he arrived early! I was not good at picking upbeat music, so he offered suggestions and they were well received with our crowd! Music is important--it adds so much to the wedding celebratory atmosphere, and so I am very grateful to DJ Nate for providing that aspect for us. I highly recommend DJ Nate/ Terrace DJ for your event! --Jes & Brian

Working with Terrace DJ/Nate for our wedding could not have been a better process. It was clear from our very first conversation over the phone (Nate's responses over email are prompt too!) that he was our guy. Its very clear that Nate has tons and tons of experience when speaking with him, but despite having this background, he was absolutely flexible and willing to make our day special and unique to us, not just a run-of-the-mill wedding.Sent on 10/06/2017
Not only did Nate provide an amazing party and dance experience during our reception (the music was so good, our guests asked for the playlist at the end of the night!), but he also aided in providing audio support during our ceremony and music during our cocktail hour as well.
Having him on board for the whole day was a relief, because he had spent plenty of time with us going over the big picture stuff, as well as the details. He knew exactly what we were looking for, and if something went off-book, he could anticipate what my fiance and I were hoping for.
Folks, if you're fretting over a choosing a DJ, you can stop. Terrace DJ is it, trust me.
