DJ Lori is amazing. She is competent, confident, organized, and communicative!! Big big bang for our buck! We had a 200 person post Covid wedding with people ages 8 months to 80 plus years and EVERYONE was on the dance floor, stayed on the dance floor, and didn’t want the night to end.

Right away she was a completely engaging, calming presence.

Throughout the planning of the day she stayed in personal and professional contact ensuring that specifics would be seamlessly navigated. We held a flash mob to surprise the bride and groom that involved about 75% of the guests—it. Was. epic. DJ Lori was wonderful throughout.

I would hire her again for any event!

I writing this review months after my home wedding was held earlier this year (it was originally scheduled for Sept 2020 at a venue) but I wanted to say what an fabulous and wonderful DJ that Lori is. Our wedding plans were interrupted during COVID but long story short, Lori was point on with everything. Between changing our wedding date twice (because of the pandemic and understanding that we needed to keep our wedding small and at home versus our original plans at our paid-for venue) and understanding how stressed we were to go from 250 people at our planned venue to just 40 at my mom's backyard, Lori handled everything perfectly and worked with our disrupted plans several times and all with no problems. What a relief I found her! Thank you so much, Lori for everything you did for my husband and I! I highly recommend Lori for your wedding or any other event! More...

AMAZING DJ!!! Dj Lori did an excellent job with our company Christmas party this past weekend!! She took requests from our employees throughout the entire evening, showed up hours ahead of time to setup, and played a great variety of music for our multi-ethnic range staff. Plus her setup is so beautiful!! Love her lights!! Latin music, house music, hip-hop, top 40, 80's and 90s and more to keep our guests dancing on the floor all night!!! We will definitely hire her again!!! Thank you, Dj lori!! More...

DJ Lori was dee jay for my husband's 60th surprise birthday. First of all if I can rate her a 10 a would.....she was absolutely amazing! ! Her mix of songs that I sent her were so fun. She really got the guests moving pretty early in the night, she even got the 20 and 30 years old there on the dance floor! We all loved how she handed out props throughout the night too. I even had her stay an extra 2 hours because everyone wouldn't get off the dance floor. I would definitely use DJ Lori again in the future and I know my friends would too. More...

We hired DJ Lori to be our musical entertainment for our 50th high school reunion. She was totally professional and knowledgeable about what our generation’s musical preferences were. She has a great personality and was easy to work with. Lori actually made me look good to our group as I was in charge of finding a DJ. I found her by doing a Google search for DJs near me. Lori’s equipment and party lighting are grade A. I would totally recommend her business for any celebration you might need music for. More...

Wedding DJ

My wife and I booked DJ Lori to help us host our wedding. To say we made the right choice was an understatement.

Lori was extremely communicative, helping us figure out the flow for the entire wedding reception from the moment we showed up, to the moment the lights came back on at the end of the night. Lori helped us write up a schedule, time everything perfectly, and also had wonderful ideas to help make the date uniquely "ours".

On the day of the event, DJ Lori coordinated with the reception venue and was able to get EVERYTHING done without having to ask a single question of the bride/groom as she had all her answers ahead of time. DJ Lori was set up and ready to entertain our guests the moment they arrived.

Additionally, DJ Lori was extremely receptive to in-the-moment changes throughout the night. Never once did we receive anything other than "Yes" from her. She would change songs, change volumes, move around the timing of things, just to make sure everything was perfect.

Not only that, DJ Lori came out from behind the DJ Booth and even got down on the dance floor! We loved that she had so much fun and made sure that every single guest we had, enjoyed their evening. DJ Lori was extremely sweet, kind, courteous, and brought the perfect amount of the "Chill" factor to our evening.

Planning a wedding is very tough, but if you're looking for an event DJ, DJ Lori is absolutely the way to go. She'll take the entertainment of your guests as her personal mission and no matter how high your expectations are -- she'll beat them.

5000 stars out of 10. My wife and I look forward to working with DJ Lori again in the future.

I found Lori through Thumbprint after the band we had for my daughters open house cancelled a few weeks before her party. I read the amazing reviews she had and booked her . I am so glad I did! All those reviews were 100% accurate on her professionalism and her performance for the night. Our guests enjoyed the music, Lori’s energy, the light display, and she even came out and danced with us! I will definitely hire her for any party we have again! More...

I cannot even begin to emphasis what an awesome DJ that Lori is!! First off, she truly was a excellent communicator in helping me plan my 2018 wedding to the T and took the time with (now my husband! ) Ned and I to plan my wedding with the right logistics and music. Then, the day of the wedding, all my guests simply raved about her music and her style because she really pays attention to everything, leaving me with no worries and all the right music we all wanted :):):) Seriously, hire her for your wedding! I am so happy we found her and cannot thank her enough for her professionalism, plus her amazing setup is so fun! My family and I absolutely love her! THANK YOU, LORI!!! I will hire her again in a heartbeat :):):) More...

I am giving Lori a five star review. From start to finish, Lori was highly professional. Her paperwork was comprehensive and she delivered everything as promised. This was a post party and we felt my husband Howard was present in spirit. Lori’s mix exceeded my expectations and the volume was perfect for the party room at Cooper’s Hawk.

Lori is a very genuine person. She helped us every step of the way including several of my wife's surprises during the ceremony. She was so professional and committed to us that she drove out to the venue on her own accord to make sure she knew the facility. She is very kind, patient, which was needed in our case with a large bridal party. We would recommend her over and over again. If you want a person who cares about you and your ceremony and wedding reception going well, chose Lori.
Sincerely,
Chris and Kim Jurs

OK, this is a little early in the process since the actual event is in December; however, so far I have nothing but positive things to say about our interaction with her. One thing that struck me early is how thorough she is. That is a hallmark of a seasoned pro. Her pricing reflects her offered packages from extremely elemental to abundanza! Of course, at this point performance remains to be seen so I cannot comment about artistry or the mechanics of putting on a show, but if our experience to date is any indicator, I haven't a worry in the world.

5 star premium quality performance, pre-party communication and pre-prep was delivered promptly, professionally and with cordialness. This event was not a dance party, it was a gathering for an awards and recognition ceremony only. The event was 3 hours and the last 45 minutes were left for upbeat "dancing" opportunity, after the awards ceremony commenced. People did responded positively to the music selected and danced. Arrival to venue was 2 1/2 hours prior to event starting time, and diversity regarding music was catered to the crowd as needed, the crowd being over 85% Latin. Bachata, Reggaeton, Freestyle/Heartthrob, Salsa, Top 40 ranging 2014 to today's hits was implemented, according to the crowd presented. Requests and complete DJ interaction was fully implemented throughout the entire event, as continual attention was needed for the client's microphone usage, as well as prompt pauses of music was needed for minute speeches for raffle purposes and award giveaways. Full attention was, then turned to having music to continue for "dance" opportunities and song requests were promptly honored and delivered promptly within 3 minutes after the requests was made, (3 requests: Salsa, Bruno Mars and Jazz cocktail).

Having DJ Lori for my wedding was the best DJ we could have asked for! Once my husband and I were set on having Lori as our DJ she sent us a bridal packet which had the entire wedding laid out in detail! ! I loved that she cared so much to put so much detail in to all weddings! We sat with her and went over different songs, when to play them, and lighting! She has so much more equipment then many other DJs had that I had talked to. She is very professional, detailed, and always had open communication with me which is all a bride could ask for. I would recommend her to anyone! All of my guests were saying how much they loved her! Thanks DJ Lori! More...

I hired Lori's DJ Service (DJ Lori) for my wedding in October of 2018, (last year), and let me tell you, this is one amazing wedding DJ. Not only was she a true professional in every way, but she handled every aspect of our wedding perfect. She was super helpful with our planning, our music picking, and above all, she did an amazing job keeping the dance floor popping with all my guests. She helped us organize our ceremony and the reception, as we had a lot going on for our wedding, and her help really put us at ease. On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant arrived several hours ahead of time, and had everything all setup outside for our ceremony and inside for our reception, ready to go. Her light show is awesome, too! I love her setup as she has a really cool white d.j. booth setup, not like those cheap looking and cheesy skirted tables that I've seen other d.j.'s use. Her light towers and uplights really added a very beautiful ambiance to our wedding that I loved. But let me tell you about her sound system! Her music volume and selections for dinner and cocktail time was perfect, and not too loud at all. All my guests loved that they could talk during dinner time. And when it came time to dance, her sound system was fabulous!! It sounded like a nightclub, which is exactly what we wanted, really putting out a great sound, (not those terrible highs like I've heard from other wedding d.j.'s I attended in the past). If you are looking for a truly professional wedding DJ, look no further, seriously! She is worth it! Thank you, Lori! My husband Joe and I are truly grateful for everything you did for our wedding.
