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!

Eric was a fantastic DJ for my sister’s party. He worked with her in advance on a set list, arrived on time with all equipment, and helped get the guests into the dance floor with his mix. Lots of people in my family who I’ve never seen dance could not resist it based on Eric’s set. Could not recommend more highly.

Eric was sensational. The dance floor literally never slowed down from the moment it started to the moment the wedding ended. This was especially huge for me as the groom, as I was responsible for finding the DJ - my most important responsibility of the wedding planning process. Eric made me look like a genius. I had so many people come up to me throughout and then after the wedding raving about the music and dance floor energy. DJ Boots!

DJ Boots was amazing to work with for our wedding. He was very attentive to our requests for music type and flow. He was flexible and able to have music for our outdoor cocktail hour and then inside for the reception. Our guests loved his music selection and commented on how he kept the party going with his flow of music. We would highly recommend him for your event.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Many of my quotes on Thumbtack are discounted rates. Travel fees may be added to distances over thirty miles from Newnan, GA. My standard pricing structure is listed on my website under pricing.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Always staying up to date on the latest trends in the DJ and music world. The brands I trust and use, Behringer speaker, Numark, Apple Macintosh, M-Audio, Akai, American DJ and Chauvet lights, are all at the forefront of the latest developments in audio technology. I'm always studying them like a kid in a candy store. Online forums, tech support, youtube, and professional (online and print) media outlets keep me informed and help answer many questions. Pros who've been successfully DJing much longer than I are kept close. They provide the bulk of education I need and seek often.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I am an audiophile, music and sound junkie, if you will. I love listening to, exploring, and talking about music. Playing music that stimulates others mentally, emotionally and physically, is why I DJ.
