DJ Lori is hands down the best DJ I have ever experienced. She crushed it at our wedding. No one would leave the dance floor. She is an amazing DJ with serious skill and she also listens to the customer and delivers exactly what is requested while going above and beyond to get the feel of the room and keep them moving. Our wedding reception was such a phenomenal experience and EVERYONE commented about how good the DJ was. Thanks so much DJ Lori. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

DJ Lori was hands down the best DJ ever! She was so helpful from start to finish, and really took a lot of work load off of my wife and I. She was extremely professional, understanding, and energetic through our whole experience. She also made us feel so comfortable. She had the whole wedding dancing the night away with great musical transitions and sound/lighting. Highly recommend!

DJ Lori is amazing. She is competent, confident, organized, and communicative!! Big big bang for our buck! We had a 200 person post Covid wedding with people ages 8 months to 80 plus years and EVERYONE was on the dance floor, stayed on the dance floor, and didn’t want the night to end. Right away she was a completely engaging, calming presence. Throughout the planning of the day she stayed in personal and professional contact ensuring that specifics would be seamlessly navigated. We held a flash mob to surprise the bride and groom that involved about 75% of the guests—it. Was. epic. DJ Lori was wonderful throughout. I would hire her again for any event!

We hired DJ Lori last year for our 2022 wedding and she did an excellent job!! She was super professional and super diligent on the details we needed. My husband and I had a wonderful time and our guests raved about her, too!! Honestly, I have seen so many bad djs, so when we hired her online, it was really nice to see how she was so wonderful and of course super fun on our wedding day. We highly recommend Lori as she really cared about helping us plan our wedding, With our wedding outside and the reception inside, it was a lot of details we needed and she actually sat down with us to go over everything that was so crucial to us. Look no further, hire DJ Lori!! Lori really is the best!! Thank you so much, Lori!!!
