  • Eric was the most incredible DJ we could have asked for. He was so sweet and smart, he met us for coffee a few weeks before our wedding and talked through the entire ceremony with us. The sound during the ceremony was excellent and everyone could hear great even in the back of the room. Once on the dance floor, he killed it again. Every single song was a hit and the party could have gone on for hours longer. We highly recommend Eric.

  • For one of our first dates, my husband and I went to Eric's Soul Stew night at The Good Foot. When we found out that he DJed weddings, we were beyond thrilled and knew immediately we wanted to hire him. Eric was our dream DJ – calm, fun and professional from the ceremony preludes to the closing song of the night (Bill Withers' "Lean on Me"). He beautifully captured important songs to us and our families while blending in a variety of party crowd pleasers, keeping the dance floor hopping from start to finish with guests of all ages. The cherry on top was seeing everyone decked out in glow sticks and light-up shoes as they danced the night away. There was even a visit from our friend T-Shreds, the inflatable T-Rex! We've already had multiple guests inquire about our wedding DJ and are happy to give Eric a glowing review. (I will add photos to this review once we receive them from our photographer).

  • You guys, Eric is seriously the best DJ you could hire for your wedding! Not only is his music style perfect for your friends and older family members but he is willing to accommodate any last minute requests from you family - like downloading an Irish dancing song last minute so you and your sister could dance to it at the end of the night! Almost every single one of our guests complemented us on the music and we owe a lot of the magic of our wedding to him! Thank you Eric for being so wonderful! We are so lucky to have you play the best tunes at our wedding and we will never forget it! Also want to add at the rehearsal he graciously help us with suggestions or things we hadn’t thought of! A true professional!

  • Eric was all-around awesome. For starters, he's got exquisite taste. What really struck us about working with Eric was attention to detail and thoughtful customer service. Eric took time for multiple calls with us to understand what we were looking for, asking about everything from the songs that might make the bride's father dance to songs that were special family traditions. We sent him several playlists and he seamlessly integrated many of our favorite songs into the cocktail hour and reception sets, while drawing from his own great collection. He also ran sound for our ceremony (which included guest speakers and multiple musical performances), and everything sounded great. Lastly, he was on time and overall a true professional. Eric is the best! Highly recommended.

  • Eric was perfect, we could not have asked for a better DJ. He was professional and incredibly talented. He kept the music flowing all night, was responsive to the crowd he was working with, and spun an amazing mix of newer and older music. Our dance floor was packed from the minute the music started until we were kicked out of our venue at the end of the night. He was early, incredibly organized, prepared for any adjustments to the schedule, and everything went perfectly. I have been to numerous weddings over the last few years and a DJ can absolutely make or break your reception. Eric will definitely exceed all your needs with flying colors. Very reasonably priced for the amazing quality of service that he gives you.

  • Our wedding coordinator initially recommended DJ Aquaman as a fan favorite for weddings. After reading a few reviews we were intrigued. My wife truly loves music and wanted a like-minded DJ who could create a unique and memorable experience. We met DJ Aquaman for coffee and were impressed by his knowledge and his true passion for music. He skillfully integrated songs and styles that we love with his own ideas and generated a fun and unique vibe for our outdoor venue. During the wedding, his ability to assess and work the crowd was fantastic. Even with a small to medium crowd in a forested venue, he engaged our audience and totally rocked it. After the wedding, many of our friends and family went out of their way to tell us how great the DJ experience and dance party was, and we agree! DJ Aquaman truly surpassed expectations. His DJ skill and passion for music was evident throughout. Thank you DJ Aquaman, we hope to catch one of your DJ sets sometime soon!

  • Eric was awesome! He was extremely helpful with pre-wedding music consultation, very flexible with our ever changing needs, seamlessly transitioned from genre to genre, and most importantly, managed to keep everyone engaged on the dance floor the entire night - like everyone...all ages...the whole time. He has an incredible record collection, but is able to play digital music if necessary. He's got an uncanny ability to know what the crowd wants before they even know it. I'd only recommend asking him to write down his set list because many of your guests are going to ask for it afterward. He also braved winter driving conditions through mountain passes to DJ our wedding, so can't say enough.

  • Eric was SO fun to have at our wedding. He was so laid back and easy to work with, and super professional. We had heard him play before, so knew we were in good hands. Everyone at our wedding kept telling us how much fun they had dancing, and every time we looked over at Eric he was super into the music, too. It was just the best and are so so glad to have hired him!

  • DJ Eric (Aquaman) was a highlight of our wedding!!! He provided the music both for the ceremony and reception. He made the effort to meet with us one-on-one prior to the wedding to discuss our musical likes and dislikes, and little did we know that the result of this meeting would be a playlist the night of our wedding that included some of the most important songs to us. He really listened and *got* us as a couple. He also did an amazing job at providing a range of music for all ages at our event. All our guests gave us compliments on the music choices and that is all thanks to DJ Eric (Aquaman) and his talent!

    It was fun seeing the smiles on your faces! And it's always fun to weave in some Carpenters and Yacht Rock, hahaha. btw- I'm trying to track down a video of that kid doing the ROBOT.

    Hey Shawn, I dug your Elvis theme and it was fun spinning a bunch of 50's era 45s to celebrate it.

  • They say your DJ can make your wedding and we we're lucky to have Eric make ours a blast! Eric was immediately engaged in making sure our music was a reflection of us, as a couple and not cookie cutter wedding music. I had to ask a significant change to our timeline two weeks before our date and he was flexible and accommodating. Many of our guests have made comments about Eric afterwards which included, "you had the best DJ!"

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank YOU Wendy, and your changes in the timeline were not a problem, you guys were super easy and fun to work with!

  • My husband and I tracked down Eric because we were longtime fans of his Soul Stew nights at the Goodfoot. We were thrilled to learn that not only does he DJ weddings, but he could also provide sound for our outdoor ceremony (Bridal Veil Lakes). Eric threw an incredible dance party and the music was one of the highlights of our wedding! We received so many comments about how great the DJ was and people couldn't stop dancing (young and old). He met with us well in advance to get a sense of what music we wanted and was happy to tailor the playlist to our taste. In the end, we let him have a lot of creative freedom with the music and it was perfect. We appreciated that he was flexible when we got behind in our timeline and was happy to go with the flow. I can't recommend Eric enough!

  • Eric helped make our event amazing. He was super helpful with suggestions in the early stages of planning, and extremely flexible and willing to help once everything got crazy. He played a great mix of crowd pleasers and soul gems, and kept our crowd dancing the whole night. Would highly recommend him for any event.

  • Eric was a great DJ and rocked our wedding party. We contacted him with not a lot of notice and he was quick to respond, organized, and professional. He was extremely easy to work with and kept the dance floor moving at our wedding better than I imagined was possible.
