DJ Lori was amazing to work with. She was caring, professional and accommodating. Very responsive and punctual. I am so grateful she was available for my husbands surprise party. Everything was perfect from her set up, the lighting around the room and on the dance floor. The volume was perfect the entire night. Overall atmosphere was amazing. Thank you Lori for an unforgettable night

DJ Lori was simply AMAZING! She had the entire party dancing all night including the staff that worked the event. Her package came with lights and the lights added that special touch to the beautifully decorated room. Her professionalism, punctuality (literally hours early) and attention to detail was priceless. Thanks DJ Lori!

I am beyond words as to how I can describe the exceptionally excellent service DJ Lori provided for my wedding!!! DJ Lori was 100% professional and handled every aspect of my wedding to perfection! Between dealing with picking the right music for my entire wedding, (I hired DJ Lori for my ceremony and for my reception later), to pre-planning ahead of time with me and my fiance, to my ceremony located at a park with a gazebo, to handling all of my crazy wild friends, and my guests and family's requests (there was a lot of requests, too!!), she managed everything to a T! We love Hiphop and Trap music to death, and she played an super fabulous awesome set! Then she took care of my other guests without dampening the wedding in any way. It gave me a break to go drink some shots with my friends or visit with my family who had traveled very far for my wedding, so the music selection was superb in every way! Not cheesy, at all! I highly recommend DJ Lori for your wedding, (or party!), as she truly is a one-of-a-kind professional who truly knows her line of work. I am SOOOOO blessed I found her here on Thumbtack!! THANK YOU, LORI!! You are the G.O.A.T.!!

So lucky we found DJ Lori for our daughter's wedding. What a true professional. She traveled several miles just to check out the venue first hand before the wedding. Her set up was unbelievable. You would of thought you were in a real night club. All and I mean all our guests were up dancing. She did everything my daughter asked her to do spot on. She takes her profession very seriously and is a perfectionist. Our family would highly recommend her for any occasion. She was so easy to work with and we could tell right away she would take care of everything. Our daughter's wedding was absolutely amazing and DJ Lori definitely contributed to take.
