Introduction: The husband and wife team of DJ Boots Entertainment provides quality music entertainment and atmosphere to both private and public events, including weddings, birthdays, holiday and theme parties. Eric Boutin has many years of experience that includes entertaining crowds as a DJ and emcee. He has also DJed college radio in RI and MA as a student and later as a volunteer. With assistance from his wife, Jane, they provide a high quality sound system with lighting and a fog machine at no extra cost, if requested. For lights, they have an American DJ Revo 4, an ADJ Tri Phase, black lights and laser lighting. Whatever your musical tastes, expectations and presentation preferences may be, they will work closely with you, through correspondence and detailed planning, to ensure that your specific needs are met. Eric is an audiophile with a background in historic research and archival management. This has exposed him to the never-ending treasures of recorded sound. Though their strengths are in the genres of funk, soul, rock, hip hop, EDM and jazz, they continue to explore new sounds everyday. Music is a positive force in our lives. It has the power to enhance our mood and outlook on the world. We keep this in mind every time they have the opportunity to share their skills and knowledge of music with others. Our prices are reasonable and simple, never involving any hidden or complicated fees. A travel fee of distances over 50 miles from Newnan, GA may be added to the total cost. A service contract agreement will outline all the details that are negotiated between the client and DJ Boots Entertainment. Creating positive energy and sound to make people move, especially those who don't often get the chance to. My knowledge of music goes well beyond the pop world. Because I work to serve others, it is important to get a sense of what the crowd desires before I arrive at an event. This means clear and timely communication between myself and the organizers. Song recommendations are always easy for me. My background in the field of library and information studies has given me not only the communication skills to find out exactly what a user is looking for, but also the research skills to locate the correct items quickly. I am also a great mixer. When the dancing starts, that means you gotta keep the beat going. Ascending or descending beats per minute gradually. Smooth transitions from one song to the next with no dead air. Dead air is a DJ's worst enemy. Quickly transitioning from one genre to the next, or a slow song to a fast one, is to be avoided unless the DJ has some sort of audio glue to make it work.

Eric was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Everything went as smoothly as can be and he kept the whole party together. Everyone was dancing and having a great time. He was very accommodating with any schedule changes we had and played all the music that was requested. So many people told us how great of a DJ he is. We couldn’t be happier. Thanks again!

We hired DJ Boots to DJ our 85-person wedding on the South Shore of Boston in May 2017. DJ Boots was wonderful to work with from before our hiring him all the way to our wedding day! Eric was able to answer any and all questions we had and was flexible in scheduling a time to speak with him over the phone before we had even decided to hire. With Eric, not only did we get someone who is an extremely skilled DJ, but someone who is professional, experienced, and fun as a master of ceremonies. He reached out to us with a very helpful template to plan the order of the reception. We let him know what kind of even we wanted, what ages would be present, and our tastes, and he was able to quickly pick up the vibe we wanted. We had music ranging from top fifty hits, salsa jams, and older classics. He made several great suggestions along the way, without ever feeling pushy or aggressive. On the day of the wedding, he planned on arriving a couple of hours early so that he would be totally set up and ready to go when the party got started. He perfectly executed all introductions and announcements throughout the night, giving off a positive, energetic, and comfortable vibe. Later in the night, with dancing, he appealed to all age groups and was able to keep everyone from my younger cousins to my college friends to my grandma out on the dance floor. So many people who "never dance" were dancing, happily. And people who had warned they might have to leave the reception early, due to kids at home, etc, did NOT leave early. By the end of the night, we heard from several people that our DJ was "awesome" and "perfect" and "so much fun." Eric has mastered the art of keeping the party going, being friendly and responsive to people, without stealing the show or becoming obnoxious. We were extremely pleased with our choice of DJ Boots and would recommend him to anyone planning a wedding. While our wedding was on the small side, I'm sure he would be great for larger groups as well.

DJ boots was great to work with! Personable, helpful, professional, and knowledgable are just a few words to describe him. We heard about him through thumbtack and were impressed right from the beginning. Eric always got right back to us whenever we had questions and was always willing to offer suggestions. We needed a microphone for our ceremony but didn't require his dj'ing services until after our cocktail hour and Eric happily accommodated our needs. We also didn't have a sit down dinner and as a result the flow of our night was a bit different than most weddings. That didn't make a difference as Eric kept our guests happy and the dance floor full the entire night! We were beyond pleased with everything about DJ Boots and recommend him without reservation to everyone!

DJ Boots We could not have asked for better DJ! DJ boots (Eric) came to our wedding prepared and had the entire dance floor rocking. We had every age from 80s to under 8 dancing all night to oldies, Jazz, new hits, rock and roll, funk and soul and old school hip hop. We gave DJ Boots a list of music we like and asked him to keep everyone dancing. He did an amazing job reading the crowd and playing great music that kept the whole party happy. DJ boots had the help of his wife throughout the night, which was great. They did a great job DJing and MCing the night. The crowd was talking about how good the music was all night long. Everyone had a blast and that is all we asked for. We would highly recommend DJ Boots for any function.
