"I first found out about DJ Richterscale (Erik) on Thumbtack. It was about 2 months before our wedding and the DJ we originally hired was no longer able to DJ for us. I went on thumbtack and received a bunch of responses to my post but DJ Richterscale stood out to us. We contacted him immediately and he was quick to respond and able to meet with us within a few days. Within the first 5 minutes of meeting him we knew it was only for the best that our first DJ didn’t work out. We met with him for about an hour and he already had a good idea of what kind of music we liked and didn’t like. Within a few days he sent us a ton of music choices for all of the dances (mother/son, father/daughter, cake cutting, etc.).
The day of our wedding Erik was awesome! He set up everything he needed for the ceremony only to find out by the wedding coordinator that it all had to be moved. He was able to quickly move everything around and get settled before the ceremony was set to start. Also, our wedding coordinator had to leave the reception early and Erik was able to take over and keep things going. He was the one to coordinate the grand entrance, the toasts, releasing tables to eat, the cake cutting, the bouquet toss/garter removal and all of the dancing in between. He also worked with our photographers and videographers to make sure they knew what was next so they were ready to film.
The Party- DJ Richterscale was AMAZING! He was so good at reading the crowd to see what type of music everyone liked to keep the party going. He is a true DJ and the music flowed so effortlessly from one song to the next. Everyone had so much fun at our wedding and it is all thanks to DJ Richterscale. He played all of the music we requested and allowed our guests to make requests as well. One person requested a song that he thought we wouldn’t like since it was on our “we’re not really a fan of this type of music list” and he even checked with us to make sure it was ok to play. The best part is he is so passionate about what he does, you can tell he loves what he does and he is so good at it. Thanks to him our wedding went so perfectly. I will definitely keep him in mind for future events and will recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ."
