How does your business stand out?

Music for all Events! made to enhance your event & tailored to your tastes! There is a good chance I'll have more reviews than most quoting you on here so hopefully that works better than me telling you how good I am, lol , plus pics speak louder than words please take a minute to see my pics and videos. The differentiator is personality combined with thousands of events experience at a competitive price. Versatility is important, from a nice wedding, to a sweet 16 or more , I've got you covered, I get everyone up and moving, I can lead on most dances, I have hats, props, games & more without being cheesy or being that dj that never shuts up, lol, My equipment & lighting are all top of the line including a custom made DJ booth with real album covers in front for parties or a refined façade with custom lighting. I feel its important to not only be a good DJ but to be able to set the mood for a party visually as well-make it FEEL like a PARTY! Im currently a well known Dj but leave the ego out of it, I'm just that guy that loves what he does and makes sure to put in the effort for all, from the average Joe, to working with multiple high visibility organizations. All quotes include, Liability Insurance, dj booth of your choice, lighting,, wireless Mics, Props, Karaoke option, fog machine, Pro Emcee Host & more. I also bring a cordless battery back up system to all events, I'm a licensed school contractor with fingerprint & back round check, see badge in my pics.

    He was on time. He played any requests and if he didn't have a specific song, guests were able to plug their phone to his aux cable to play it.

    Highly recommended
    We loved the liveliness and how DJ Wright kept the party moving. Awesome experience. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. One suggestion would be fewer 60's songs. The parents of the bride and groom grew up in the 70's and 80's. More requested songs from the song list provided by the bride and groom.

    Thx for the nice review Anna, Very fun group, I put my best mobile set up with uplights and more outside the barn and a smaller portable with mic inside the barn for dinner & speeches. As far as the music I only played two what we call in the bizz floor fillers songs from the 60;s all night, the dance floor was packed all night, As far as the song list requests I believe we got at least 80% of those played but they were mixed in through out the evening as some songs are more danceable than others, Cheers : )

    We highly recommend DJ Harry! Me and my now husband love DJ Harry! He did a great job as a DJ and Emcee for our wedding. We had our wedding at the Sarasota Garden Club and DJ Harry was ready and even had back ups ready if something wrong was to happen. Great music selection! He really set the tone of the night. He is also very flexible with everything, and easy to get a hold of (cellphone, FB, email, thumbtack). He also recommended a great photographer to us who recommended a great Christian Pastor to us!

    Harry provided the music for our 50th wedding anniversary this past week. He did a great job mixing up the music & including everyone in the dancing. Many commented on his work. He was very easy to work with, showed up early for the set up & there were no problems. Would recommend him for any occasion. He was definitely the "Right" DJ.

    I had to often ask when dance party music would start. It was kind disappointing we had to all first cake cutting, flowers throwing, garter toss. To finally get the party music going. Only 2 hours. To top it off he charge my daughter another $100.00 , we did have written agreement.
    Harry W. May 27, 2015

    Well after 33 5 star reviews I guess one bad review can happen. Unfortunately this one is un-warranted. For starters I ran the entire event the way the bride wanted according to her timeline. Special note to public reading this that the above review is not from the bride or groom.The Bride, groom & guests were very pleased and complimented me. The person reviewing on here unfortunately was the only disappointed 1%, 99% happy is not bad I'll take that. As far as having to ask when dance party music would start the answer is when the brides timeline said to start it which I did and the dance floor was packed the whole rest of the evening, I also did not charge anything extra as stated above its actually insulting, then to top it off I had an extra hour and a half in set up going up to the 3rd floor in a tortoise speed elevator and didn't complain a bit about it, I also always attempt to follow what the bride and groom want and not let people take over their wedding, Thank You : )

DJ Harry kept the reception moving along just as we planned and kept the "party" going as well! Everyone from 8 years old to 75 years old had an amazing time and was entertained all night!! Thanks DJ Harry!

    I found Harry on thumbtack & he gave me an awesome quote. I spoke to him many times about the reception. We all just loved his personality, being early at the wedding, great music, and such cute props to have fun with the crowd. If I ever need a DJ again, DJ Harry will be my choice. If you have any doubt, please don't as he is the best! Choose DJ Harry for your wedding reception like I did and you will have a wonderful and fun time! Cindy

    Harry did our wedding at Sarasota Garden Club and we simply had a blast! He played the songs I requested and many more. Harry had everyone on the dance floor, I had many guest comment on how much fun they had. My father even mentioned that out of the 4 weddings he put on he danced the most at my wedding. Harry also did the shoe game for my husband and I which was a BIG hit! I loved it...the best thing about Harry is he truly made the evening about my husband and I...all the way down to the last song where he had our guest circle around us and we danced to "When a Man Loves a Women". It was sweet and romantic, and it topped off a wonderful night. Thanks Harry!! You are an easy going, talented DJ & we couldn't be more pleased! -Ben and Erin Wilson

    What a sensational night of fun at Relay For Life of Englewood on Saturday, April 5th to early hrs of April 6th!!! DJ Harry's state of the art equipment rocked Lemon Bay High School's track and football field and kept us all on track with the lap and activity schedule. Fourteen hours plus and smiling the entire time!!! I especially liked the Village People performance with Harry leading the group!! So glad you were available for our Relay weekend and I hope we can do it again next year!! Great selection of music, great sound, great fun!! Thanks, Harry!!

    On Saturday, November 23rd Harry Wright DJ'd my wedding. We met before the wedding and we came up with an outline as to how the evening would come together. He added a speaker on the beach so I would have some music to walk down the aisle to. He played the songs I requested and was able to play many requests from my guests. I received many compliments from my guests about how he added to the wedding. I would highly recommend him for a Wedding or any event.

    Harry Wright is the best Professional DJ I have encountered in years. He will custom tailor your music and even make on the spot requests. He performed at the Magnolia Room Town Center of The Pelican Preserve in Ft Myers, Fl. and the crowd loved him. The occasion was my son's wedding reception and he played four hours non stop and was the master of ceremonies. He was set up one hour before the reception and had top of the line equipment. I would recommend Harry Wright to anyone wanting a professional to insure their party is a success. He makes the party and his price is very, very reasonable. For a great event you need the Wright DJ. Colonel James R. Bolla, (USA) (RET)

    Harry is the Wright DJ! He handles the most difficult situations with ease and a smile. His equipment is top notch, well prepared, on time and a great entertainer! His pricing is fair and at market! We had Harry provide church processional music and our reception entertainment. I have seen his show at different entertainment venues around Sarasota . As well, Harry works with TV & Radio events where I have observed both pre and post production activities....he is on the mark. Personality makes this an easy choice...and a friend afterwards. Go meet and hire him now otherwise you may be disapointed at your special event. He books fast! Cheers and beers Harry! Thank you! Berle &Vikki

    Harry showed up early to make sure he was set up and ready to play for our wedding which we greatly appreciated! He accommodated last minute needs, such as playing for a split outdoor ceremony, and staying past the original contract time. Extremely nice and flexible DJ that is eager to please his customers. I would recommend Harry for any event that a DJ is required.

    Harry was absolutely amazing. He got the party going and once it started it didn't stop. He played a great mixture of music. We had everything from 80's to Latin music. It was my daughter's 15th birthday and he was careful to play age appropriate music. He brought props and everyone played games. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that wants to have a great time. Thank you, Harry. Great job!!

    We had Harry DJ our wedding on the beach and the set up at the ceremony was great and the reception was great as well. We needed him for an additional hour, which we had previously informed him we might, and he had no problem with the added hour. The music was great; he played everything we asked for and more! Harry did a wonderful job and he is a great guy all around!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was a program director in a recreation field and found I had a knack for mixing music for groups and occasions. I can go from playing sound effects..to he's the jolly good fellow for an award recipient...to leading on a line dance...to packing any dance floor for all ages. Truthfully this is a long acquired skill and takes much effort and time. So many Dj's boast about the quantity of music they have but it means nothing! Its the quality of danceable mixes, reading the crowd present, and the experience of doing hundreds of partys for multiple groups, ages and ethnicities, that differentiates me.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, Holiday & Office Parties, Birthdays all ages including Sweet Sixteens, Special Events,Reunions, Anniversaries ,Fairs, Fundraisers, Grand Openings, Conventions, Clubs & Multiple School functions as I'm a licensed Florida Public Schools Contractor with fingerprint & back round check, (Music For All Occasions!!)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A good MC-DJ Host can make or break your event, pictures speak louder than words so feel free to review mine on my Facebook page. There are too many robotic DJs that just sit and push buttons or lack personality or versatility. I see so many of my competitors telling you how great they are because they moonlight at this part time. They have done 3 family members events and now think they are pro's, it takes years and hundreds of events to be a seasoned pro at this. My differentiation is I let my customers tell you how good I am as I have more reviews than anyone in my three county area. I offer a competitive price as well. Don't risk your event by going with the cheapest offer I will always try to work with you, Thank You : )
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Im a cut up, I think if people see your having fun it sets a mood...somewhat contagious..lol However I do take it quite seriously in the preparation and appearance category its very very important to me that your event goes well. Music is a passion for me so I stay up on everything I feel that is not the case for some dj's I've seen that are low energy and truthfully somewhat out of touch.
