  • Eric is amazing! He was always readily available my email or phone. Setting up meetings with him was super easy. My favorite is that he has a system that you get to input the songs you want/don’t want, etc and you can make it your own! He also gives great suggestions if you need help picking songs! Thank you Eric for making my ceremony and reception music run smoothly. Everyone loved you!!! As I work in the wedding business and work with multiple DJs each year, but Atlantic Premiere is the absolute best!!!!

  • Eric is truly the best. Not only as a DJ (and he is an amazing DJ) but also a human being. He was in constant contact and wanted to make sure everything went exactly how I imagined and he did a fantastic job. All of my guests had a great time and are still talking about how great he was. I cannot thank him enough for everything he did. We also used his snow machine for our exit and it was the best decision I made. The pictures turned out amazing and yet again my guests loved it. Such a cool and unique experience I have not yet seen before. We also took advantage of his new photo booth and this was another great opportunity for me and my husband as well as my guests. So many funny, cute pictures AND BOOMERANGS...yes boomerang videos through the photo booth. So Cool. Again I love the company and all of the services they offer and especially my fav DJ Eric.

    What can I say....you guys were AMAZING. Truly a fun group and genuinely phenomenal people. I had such a good time not only at the wedding but in the time leading up to it. Working with you guys was a true treat and I hope you had as much fun as I did. We wish you all the best in your new married life!

  • We planned a wedding in our home state of NC all the way from PA. I researched and interviewed a few in the area and found that Atlantic Premier had an easy way to chat with them. I sent them interview questions and found that Eric was so easy to communicate with and answered my questions right away and with detail. I loved that! I also thought they had competitive pricing. Our wedding was at the Overlook in North Topsail on 11/15/19 and the week of we found out John would be our DJ. He called us and we had a pretty long conversation going through what we wanted to happen in the reception. It was very easy going discussing with him our vision and our most important things that we were looking for in the reception and the music and how we wanted the guests to be like. I am a control freak so I had a set itinerary with time slots for what we planned but he was so good at helping us making it better with the right flow and all that. Well, nothing goes as planned and John was really good a... Read more

  • Eric was absolutely amazing! We had our wedding ceremony on the beach. Eric had everything set up perfectly. Music was able to be heard, and you could even hear our officiant and our vows to each other with no wind in the background. The reception couldn't of been topped! There was never a moment where people were not on the dance floor. Eric kept the party going, and was even able to play some African music requested by my husband's side of the family. The entire process was great. Eric responded quickly to my emails and any questions that I had. He even went above and beyond and sent me pictures of a wedding at my venue a few weeks prior he was at to give me an idea of the set up. I would recommend this company to everyone!

    Thank you so much for your kind review of our services. Your wedding was particularly fun for me as I was able to play some music that I don’t typically get to play. On top of that, I could just feel the love for you guys from everyone in attendance. Once the party started...IT WAS ON!! You guys came to have a good time and that always makes many job easy. Thanks again for having me there. Congratulations and I wish for you many years of happiness in your new married life!

  • Eric Thompson was amazing to work with! He was super responsive, and was so flexible and accommodating with our song choices! We made last minute changes right up to the very final moments before the ceremony! Our guests found him very entertaining and we just loved having him! With wedding planning it can become very stressful, however I didn't need to stress at all when it came to choosing Atlantic Premiere as our DJ. Eric made it stress-free and fun. So glad we chose him to be part of our big day!

    Katie, you guys were AMAZING!! Thank you so much for the kind words. It was truly my pleasure to be included in your special day. We here at Atlantic Premier Entertainment wish you MANY year of happiness in your new married life! Congratulations!

  • We absolutely LOVED working with Eric from Atlantic Premier Entertainment!! Eric was beyond kind and accommodating when helping us plan for our big day! He was so genuinely happy and excited for us and our wedding, it made planning even more fun! We got married one week after Hurricane Florence hit Wilmington and the genuine excitement that Eric shared with us when we decided to move forward with our wedding was so incredibly touching. I cannot express how much fun our family and friends had!!!! Even the staff at our venue had a blast with him (he played for and entertained the staff while they got ready and again while they cleaned up- how awesome is that?!?!). The dance floor was packed the entire night and Eric kept the fun going without hesitation. People are still raving about how much fun Eric made our special night! I would absolutely recommend Eric and Atlantic Premier Entertainment to anyone looking for a fun wedding reception! Thanks again for everything!!!

    You are too kind. Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your wedding day. You guys were such a pleasure to work with and I was soooooo happy when you told me of your decision not to let the hurricane disrupt your wedding plans! SIDENOTE: We sure did have a good time, didn't we?!?! We wish you all the best in the future with your new husband!

  • Atlantic Premier Entertainment is the best DJ service in Wilmington! They are located right on the water downtown so after we met with him we enjoyed the opportunity for a scenic date night. They did our wedding and went absolutely above and beyond to make sure we had the experience we were looking for. We enjoy a variety of music and they helped us find the best songs to compliment our taste. The guests loved them! Could not recommend highly enough!!

    Because you guys’d are AWESOME!!!! You were so beautiful on your wedding day. You and Dom were so much fun and even weathered through the sweltering heat so that you and all of your guests could have a great time! Thanks so much for choosing us to be part of your wedding day.

  • Adam was amazing! Everything went smoothly and he made sure to check in periodically during the reception to make sure we were happy with the flow of the night. Eric was very attentive leading up the date and made sure everything was how I wanted it. He has an online portal that was very helpful! It allows you to pay online, choose songs that you want/don’t want and set up the timeline for the night.

    Hi Kellie! Thank you so much for your kind words. Adam is a true professional that prides himself in being sure that his couples are more than completely satisfied with their experience on the day of their wedding. It's wonderful couples like you and your new husband that help make our jobs so easy! Thanks again for choosing Atlantic Premier Entertainment for such a special day. We wish you MANY years of joy and happiness with your new husband!

  • Eric was amazing! He made planning our music so easy. I really only directed him on a short list of songs that we wanted played for specific moments and let him take control of the rest! He kept everyone moving on the dance floor all night long and was more than willing to stay for an extra hour at the end of the night because everyone was having so much fun! He even jumped on the dance floor for a minute to show folks how to do the wobble. Our wedding was so much fun… a big thank you to Eric!!!

  • THEY PLAYED THE WRONG FIRST DANCE SONG!!! My husband and I never got to dance to our song on our wedding night. I would never recommend this DJ service to anyone. We booked over a year in advance as we heard so many great things however it turned out horribly. We thought we were going to have Eric as our DJ however John was scheduled for our wedding which we did not know until about a week before the wedding. They did not reach out to us to discuss our plans for the wedding night until a few days prior. We were all ready to go as we filled out the online forms for every song we wanted played and announcements etc... however the DJ seemed to have taken the time to look over this information before calling us. They offered a fog machine for our entrance however then told us right before the wedding that they could not do this do to fire codes... then why offer the service? They allowed us to create our own wedding playlist which we worked on for a year before the wedding. A few d... Read more

    We are truly disappointed that you did not have the experience you expected. From the pictures provided by other guests, your photographer, and taken by our DJ, it looked as though everyone had a great time. Having spoken with your husband several weeks prior to your wedding, we re-explained what was already in our contract. We DO NOT play explicit music. We find radio versions of those songs and are happy to play them instead. After reviewing the playlist you created on our website and the playlist that was actually played at your wedding, I found that the only music not played were songs that did not have a “CLEAN” version available. Not having the correct first dance played is a terrible thing to have happen which is why all of our DJs verify the all of the special dances on the night of the event to be sure they are correct. It puzzles me why you would approve the song that John verified with you if it was incorrect. I do recall speaking with you and your husband on several occasions and even offered a partial refund but it seems I received no spouse from you to say that would be acceptable. The smoke machine was used on the night of the event and we simply wanted WEEKS prior to the wedding that placement would be paramount due to fire alarms. The pictures of your bridal party entering through the smoke looked pretty awesome. Again, we are terribly sorry that your experience wasn’t to your liking. We work very hard to ensure that all of our couples are more than pleased. Your critique will allow us to make changes that will ensure better service to our future couples. Thanks for your review!

  • Eric was great to work with! We were traveling from out of town for our wedding and he was extremely flexible with meeting with us after hours and on weekends. He's very friendly and personable and got the job done! Many of our guests don't take orders well and it could be like herding cats with them. Eric herds cats like a pro! He got them to do what we needed them to do while being professional and not at all pushy. We received multiple compliments on our DJ at the wedding and would happily use him for other events or just shoot him a message next time we're in town to hang out.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much for the kind words. We try to be as accommodating as possible. Planning a wedding isn't easy and if our flexibility can lend itself to your planning process being made easier, then we are all for it! You definitely had an active crowd, but it was a LOT of fun and that's what we shoot for! As for hanging out...I'm definitely game for that! You guys were a blast and we should definitely hang out the next time you are in town! Congratulations again and all the best from me and my team here at Atlantic Premier Entertainment.

  • The only part of our wedding that we were disappointed with was the DJ. Starting with the initial planning process, I had a hard time getting a response from Eric via email. I typically would have to follow up my emails with a phone call in order to get his attention. We scheduled several times to talk on the phone leading up to the wedding to go over all the details and 2+ times Eric either cancelled, didn't answer or seemed like he didn't remember we had scheduled it. My husband and I created our playlist in Eric's event planner tool - and it included plenty of songs that would've lasted even longer than our wedding reception - but he played other songs that weren't even on our list. Music is a love of ours so to hear random songs at our wedding when we spent hours creating a playlist specific to us was extremely disappointing. I included every single detail in the event planner tool including what song the bridal party would be entering to, etc. yet upon arrival at cocktail hour... Read more

    Kristen, we are sorry to hear you were not happy with the services you received for your wedding. Our DJ’s are highly trained, skilled professionals who work very hard to accommodate even the most detail oriented couples. While investigating your claim of slow response times, we reviewed the entire email chain between you and our company and found that all but one email was returned within 24-hours. Many of them were returned within minutes. Your event timing was followed as closely as possible all evening, but we defer to the planner on site for implementing the timeline. The DJ did not determine the start time for your toasts, nor was he responsible for them being delayed. He began them as soon as he was given the go ahead by the planner. Concerning your statement that the DJ played “random songs”, your music selections were used exclusively until he saw guests were no longer dancing. In an attempt to entice guests to the dance floor, he decided to exercise the creative license, granted by the contract, to play a song not on your list. Once told you wanted him to stick to the dictated list, he promptly returned to that list and remained true to it for the rest of the night. At no point prior, were we told you expected us to ONLY play the music you listed. You were told by us that the song list you provide us acts as a guideline, not as an etched-in-stone playlist, and you made no mention of your desire for us to play only from your list. Had that been the case, there would have been no deviation from your music selections. In response to your claim the DJ rushed last minute to ask about your introduction song, please note we always verify song selections on site to ensure complete accuracy. He was only to verifying no last-minute changes had been made. Again, we are very disappointed you were not satisfied with our services, especially on such an important day. We will certainly use your feedback to improve our future offerings.

  • We were lucky in that our venue contract included the music for the ceremony and reception, provided by Atlantic Premier Entertainment. Eric was our contact from the beginning and he was very responsive. We started building out our song requests with the log in they provided, and it was super easy to use. We included our music selections for the ceremony, reception formalities, and the must plays. Eric then set up a call with us a week before the wedding and we talked to him about all our requests. He was fantastic! So easy to talk to, such great energy, and we were really excited for the day! He did a wonderful job with the music at the ceremony and reception - we were so pleased!
