Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: What I suggest is that we set up a meeting at like a Starbucks so I can introduce myself and we can discuss your event with no commitments. You can even let me know days after our meeting if you do or don't wish to use my DJ Services. Larry Ortega **please see my Promotional Video located in my profile photo gallery to get an example of my set up.** I have always taken great pride in my performances and its very important to me that your day is a memorable one. Planning a wedding or even a back yard party can be stressful and overwhelming. I like to think I help relieve some of that anxiety. I will meet you at the event site, review the space, and have constant contact with you prior to the event. I will make sure every detail from music selection, lighting and timelines are addressed. I am well organized and always show up early. It is important to me that the day is special whether it is a Corporate Event, Wedding, Graduation or Birthday....Good referrals are what keeps me working I joined Thumbtack in 2013 and I think its a great way for potential clients and service professionals to link up. When you hire me, you will get: - Free and fast consultations, clear communication before and during your celebration - A DJ and MC who works well under pressure and easily takes direction - A sound and lighting perfectionist that will take command of state-of-the-art equipment, and a professional who is willing to go above and beyond to give great customer service - A huge list of music like Billboards Top from every year since 1954 When you hire me you won't get: - An MC who makes cheesy jokes or crazy comments that can make you and your guests uncomfortable - A DJ who wears jewelry, baggy jeans, or sneakers - A DJ with an attitude when you ask "Could you turn it down a bit?" or "Could you stay for just a while longer?" I have performed at private parties, corporate events, and weddings.

DJ

Found Larry last minute after my other DJ bailed on me. Larry was straightforward and honest from the beginning to end. He was also a much better value than expected. Everything he promised to offer he delivered on and went above and beyond to make the party a hit. For 6 hours he kept the party going. Thanks for your help Larry and I look forward to seeing you again at my next party. By the way your set up is the real deal. I don’t think I’ve been to a private party/event and have seen a DJ have all the things you have... good job!!

I Hardley ever write reviews for anything but I had to write one for Mr. Ortega to let people know what to expect from this man. When you're getting ready for such an important event like in my case my daughter's sweet 16 it could be very stressful with everything else that has to come together but let me reassure you if you book Mr Ortega that's one less thing you have to worry about. He is on point with everything, he is such a professional from the first call months before the event we've been in contact, when you text him he responds right away that's one of the things I really like about him. He made me feel that my daughter's sweet 16 was as important to him as it was to me. Everything came out beautifully at my daughter's sweet 16 everybody enjoyed his music all his equipment it was just awesome thank you so much Mr Ortega we really do appreciate you and you will definitely be in our next event because I just simply love the fact of the peace of mind you gave me that I don't have to worry about the DJ not showing up on the day of my event and being a hit with me and my guests. THANK YOU AGAIN.

Wedding DJ

Larry did an AMAZING job, being the DJ for our wedding! From our first consultation, he was very helpful and informative in making sure our wedding day would perfect and helped us choose the music to keep our wedding guests entertained at the same time fitting to the style of my husband and I. Our final consultation, I was very particular and gave him a schedule for our ceremony and reception. I had picked out songs I wanted to play for our ceremony, the versions as well as the exact time from the seconds I wanted them to be played at. During the reception, I was also particular in a certain order of the events taking place that night. My husband and I put our trust in him to choose most of the music that played during the open dance floor time and he kept the party going! Larry met all our needs and expectations that day, he played everything on point and added so much fun and energy to our wedding day! I would highly recommend him for a wedding event or any event, he definitely made and went beyond our expectations! I'm so glad we chose him for our wedding day, it was perfect!

Larry and Ortega Entertainment come HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! From the beginning, he was constantly in contact with me, making sure that everything was taken care of. Planning my event was highly stressful, but Larry made it super easy when it came to getting a DJ. A very class act guy, he went out of his way to meet with me beforehand to ensure that he had all the details of the event. At the event, Larry was there more than 2 hours early, setting up his awesome equipment (his TV's are great and he put together a great slideshows). He puts a lot of effort and care into his setup and it was evident by my guest. All night he played an awesome selection of music and made sure that there was something for everybody. I got many compliments about Larry and would highly recommend him to anyone. I would definitely use his services again.

Larry was the DJ for our wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a better DJ! We were in contact with him months before the actual wedding and he made sure to ask us everything that we needed. He was very professional, looked very classy with his suit & tie, and his set up was pretty amazing! He even visited the wedding venue to make sure everything is adequate for his equipment and talked to the management about setting up hours before the event. He has a lot of great connections, and his recommendation on a wedding planner was one that we did not regret at all. Overall it was a great experience to have worked with him. Thanks again, Larry!

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I believe in developing a relationship with my clients and making them feel comfortable from beginning to end.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    Private Parties, Graduations, Birthdays, Aniversaries, Corporate Events and Weddings

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    I would be careful hiring a DJ that is charging a low fee. This could be a sign that he or she is just beginning in the industry which could be very risky when we are talking about a special occasion such as wedding.
