  • Thank you Jerry for DJing at our wedding! I planned it in two months and he was great. He met with us to discuss what kind of music we wanted, to go over the timeline, and had a lot of suggestions. He also has a Photo Booth for hire so we did that and our guests loved it. Jerry was very flexible with us, we had last minute changes and he was able to go with it. And from my research, what he charges for his services is very fair and competitive. Check him out!

  • We hired Jerry as the DJ for our wedding in October 2015 and this was one of the best decisions we made! Jerry played the music for our ceremony and reception, which were in two different locations, and he ensured that everything ran smoothly the entire day. Jerry’s knowledge of music, professionalism, energy, timeliness, planning and attention to detail made working with him easy and enjoyable. From the first consulting meeting, to the several phone calls leading up to the big day, Jerry listened to what we wanted and helped us have the perfect wedding. All our guests raved about the music that Jerry put together and had so much fun dancing the night away. He also kept our guests entertained during the hors d’oeuvre hour while we were off with the photographer by having a limbo contest, which our family and friends are still talking about! From start to finish Jerry was the best and we would hire him again in a heartbeat! We highly recommend Jerry for any event you’re planning! ... Read more

  • Jerry was the best! He created the exact atmosphere that we wanted. He met with us multiple times in advance of the wedding to understand how the event was going to flow. During the event, he read the crowd perfectly - the dance floor was packed the entire time with people of all ages. He is a true professional that has lots of ideas for you to consider. His sound system is great too. We will definitely hire Jerry again in the future!

  • I'd like to give Jerry more than five stars. This was the best money spent for my wedding. I met with him twice and he really wanted to get to know us as a couple and make sure he had a good idea of what makes us us. Naturally, he played lots of great music, rich we had discussed ahead of time, but he pretty much saved the wedding which was getting a bit crazy with running around for photos. I guess that happens with big bridal parties-I had 11 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen. He also acknowledged my grandpa's 90th birthday, and... He led some dances like the electric slide and gangnam style, which was so much fun.It helped get lots more people on the dance floor. As if that weren't enough, he's on several chambers of commerce locally, and has tons of connections.when I realized that my house would be full of guests on our wedding night, Jerry gave me a recommendation for a great hotel near me. He knows the manager, as he is their exclusive dj! Because of Jerry,I got a super deal on a love... Read more

  • We LOVED our Dj Jerry Shultz! We had about 80 people at our wedding and he had them all dancing!!! He was hilarious, fun, caring, kind, and very professional. Everyone at my wedding still talks about how great he was. He made our wedding. Without him our wedding wouldn't have been such a success! He's THE BEST!

  • Great DJ! My husband and I like a lot of oldies and he had every song we wanted and he was willing to get the ones that he didn't have. We liked the way he was prepared in consultations and gave us a lot of great ideas. He really followed the guidelines we gave him on the wedding day. He arrived on time and was very professional. I also really liked the way he gave my husband a small mic to put on his shirt for the ceremony so everyone could hear us. That was unexpected and everyone in the audience raved about how great it was to actually hear us. He did a great job getting the crowd going and we danced the night away!! He was a great DJ and I would highly recommend him.

  • Jerry at Portable Party Crew West was personally responsible for making my wedding fun, and running smoothly. Jerry doesn't just sit behind a table and play songs, he organizes the music for the entire ceremony, plus plans the timing for all the events: bride and groom's entrance to the reception, cake, first dance, bouquet toss, etc. He will MC the entire reception so you don't have to think about a single thing. Jerry is so great at what he does that my family hired him for 4 more family weddings and 3 birthday parties.

  • I had a really unfortunate experience with Jerry Schultz's Portable Party Crew West and am writing this as a warning to others. I am currently seeking recourse through the California Attorney General’s Office. I hired Jerry and paid him 50 percent of his $1,300 fee upfront. He agreed to provide sound services for not only our reception but also the ceremony. The ceremony required a battery-powered system as it was in a remote area. He agreed to rent the system; I agreed to reimburse him for the rental. What followed was three months of growing frustration as Jerry kept assuring me he would obtain the system but failed to demonstrate results. With our wedding date approaching, Jerry ignored repeated emails and phone calls over the course of two weeks and finally, I terminated our contract. I requested Jerry return my $650. He refused to do so and in fact, tried to charge me the remainining balance. Jerry proved himself to be unprofessional and non-communicative. Weddings s... Read more

    Dear future brides and grooms- I appreciate you taking the time to read my response. I ask that you read all of my other unsolicited reviews to see that I not only meet but beat the expectations of my couples every time. I win awards because of my passion for quality service, creativity, and attention to details to make each event fun, professional, and stress-free. My couples can feel like guests at their own weddings. Many clients see me years after their weddings and tell me their guests still say their weddings were the best events they ever attended. All phone calls received were answered or promptly returned. I promptly answered all e-mails that I received. The battery-operated system was rented after doing a couple weeks of research and over a month before the client cancelled my services based on his belief I did not rent it. I stated many times that it was rented and that I was providing a backup generator for FREE. I told him the discounted price and stated the bill would be forthcoming once my wife had her worrisome surgery. This was over 2 months before the wedding. I went the extra mile getting information from a state senator’s aide on how to obtain a permit for amplified music on a state beach after the client was told he could not have amplified sound. When I told him the good news, he said he would not get the permit and take his chances with the park rangers on the day of his wedding. When trying to address the client’s concerns, I kept my calm when he screamed at me and hung up on me numerous times. He stated with malice that unless I returned his first payment, he would ruin my reputation and destroy my business. He posted this review 4 times. That is extortion and libel. My wife was a witness to this and most of the other conversations. My promise to future couples is to give the A+, 5-star service that thousands of my clients have received. Jerry Schultz, MBA Owner of Portable Party Crew-West Entertainment

  • Jerry was great for our wedding! He was a great value and totally provided everything that he said he would! He was able to be flexible when he couldn't play music at the rehearsal dinner and that was awesome. However throughout the night I thought that he had a really hard time getting people to the dance floor and getting their attention overall. It was kinda a buzz kill. At the end of the night we were supposed to do a toast to everybody, but everybody was gone, and yet he still recommended that we make the toast. Super awkward. Other than the lack of attention that he was getting from our guests, Jerry still did a great job and he is totally affordable. I would however recommend that he keep up with payments for couples. It became about a week before the wedding and we still owed him, which I thought we already paid. Not an issue, I would have just liked a bit of a reminder more than that close to the wedding. I am sure he may have wanted his money sooner too.

  • Jerry did a very god job on our wedding. Other than one misunderstanding, he understood what we wanted and delivered what we asked. He had a lot of ideas to share and definitely knows music well. The reception was a great party and he kept people dancing which is what we wanted. I would recommend Jerry to other brides. But be sure to ask him for extra speakers if your reception site is large and you want people to hear announcements.

  • Jerry did a great job DJ-ing our wedding. He gave us a terrific deal because we booked early and we were referred by my cousin. He offered us flexibility with the online song selection. The only bad thing was there wasn't enough time to play all the songs, but that wasn't Jerry's fault. Great job!
