    Lenny Joseph Productions

    (5 reviews)

    I take pride in making sure that I go above and beyond what the client expects. I work with each client to make sure that their wedding or party will be one of the best nights of their lives. I help my clients come up with a "please play list" as well as a "do not play" list and I am more than happy to meet with my clients in person, if possible, before the event, so that they get a chance to meet me and so that we can talk about exactly what they are expecting. The best part of my job is knowing that I helped make my clients special day, even more special by providing music not only as background, but as entertainment. It is a rewarding feeling, when at the end of the night, my clients come thank me for doing a great job.

    We keep things simple, help your event flow super smoothly, and play the music you want to hear, when you want to hear it. We pride ourselves on creating awesome events without being cheesy. The musical experience is so much better when transitions are smooth and people can continue dancing all night long. We combine a lifelong love for music, tons of experience with all events, the best equipment and a huge music library to make your dream event come true. Your event is unique and we can work together to help create an event that is totally you! There's something to be said about seeing the dance floor packed all night long. Hearing cries of "ohhhhhhhhhhhhh" when we play that right song at the right moment is as good as it gets. Weddings are especially great. We love being a part of such a special occasion, which is why we take our job so seriously. Making events truly shine is easily the best part of the job.

  • A Family Friendly DJ, LLC.

    (58 reviews)

    I am proud to be recognized at one of Thumbtacks top DJs in the greater Portland area having won the 'Best of 2015' and 'Best of 2016' award. In 2017 I earned the 'Top Pro' award from Thumbtack, earned by less than 3% of all Thumbtack pros. There are two things I think that really make me stand out from other DJs. First is communication. I try hard to make sure I have a clear understanding of what you are expecting in a DJ and that I can fulfil that expectation otherwise I won't take the job. Second is the music itself. Like just about every other DJ out there I have thousands of songs available from many genres spanning 70+ years. Where I think I stand out is WHAT I play depending on the type of the event. At weddings I don't play songs about breaking up, cheating on your spouse, etc. I know it sounds silly but most Djs don't even think about something like that. At corporate events I don't play songs with profanity in them. The last thing you want is the 'F' bomb coming over the speakers. It's very unprofessional and can be offensive to client and employee alike. School dances, charity events, golden anniversary, birthday party... they all have different needs and need to be handled appropriately. Call me and I will gladly go over what I do in a situation like yours. I have the greatest job in the world because I am able to make people happy by playing great music. I am thrilled when I can help make a bride's dream of a magical wedding and reception come true. I am ecstatic when at a corporate Christmas party I turn what would have been a hum-drum get together into an outright party. I take great satisfaction when students come up to me during a school prom and thank me for doing a great job. I ask, who WOULDN'T love to do this?

    "People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it." - Simon Sinek I look at my job as a DJ, as your DJ, to sincerely make each event I do the best one possible. It's about going beyond a good business practice, it is about doing what you believe in. I like meeting with the couples/clients and discussing their details while adding in my experience. I like knowing that I will be helping to start a couples life together in an amazingly fun and positive way.

  • Silicon Forest Entertainment

    (16 reviews)

    I've been DJing for 11 years now and my policy has been that I won't take your money if you're not completely satisfied. In 11 years, No other DJ in Portland offers that same promise. We include additional services like uplighting and custom monogram at no extra cost. When you compare our pricing to other DJs with similar service, we're usually about half the cost of the other guy. I DJ because I love being around parties and happy couples. It's the most enjoyable job in the world. Where else do you get paid to eat cake?? :)

Thumbtack Spotlight

Noteworthy DJs :: DJs, MCs, Photo Booths & Lighting

(66 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Noteworthy DJs is available for all types of events, but specializes in weddings. I, and my DJs, love our jobs because we have the honor and privilege to be a part of the best days of people's lives.

Weddings are not easy to plan, and we love working with clients every step of the way. There's something remarkable about seeing the client's vision of their big day coalesce in their mind as we prepare. We see it all the time. Clients begin a meeting with many different topics and questions in mind and leave with a sense of excitement knowing fully well how their night is going to transpire.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

While she didn't originally know this, but my mother was my inspiration. After decades of working in the same dead-end career in a field that only partially interested her, my mother offhandedly commented about how long she had been doing what she was doing and how quickly that time passed. Her situation was not too dissimilar to mine. Both of our careers were forgettable, mildly interesting, stressful and not really worth it.

I have always loved everything music-related and loved big events. In addition to being a DJ, I have also been a musician and multi-instrumentalist for a more than 2 decades. My pre-Noteworthy DJs career days didn't involve a single scintilla of music or event production. Thanks to my mom's casual remark, I became motivated to put music and events back in the center of everything where it belongs.

  1. #1 Noteworthy DJs :: DJs, MCs, Photo Booths & Lighting

    (65 reviews)

    Ashley P.

    The entire process of working with Joe has been fantastic!!! Piece of mind is the best thing any bride could given, and did just that. Great communication over the course of almost a year of going back and forth. By the time we finally met in person the day of the wedding, I felt as though we already knew eachother. Any question I had, he had an answer. The ceremony and reception were beautiful with addition of the music! The easy to follow DJ Worksheet that Joe provides made my life a heck of a lot easier as well. I would recommend Noteworthy DJs, specifically Joe's outgoing, contagious personality) to any event!

  2. #2 Jazz It-Up Productions

    (48 reviews)

    Angela J.

    Aaron with Jazz it up productions did an amazing job at our wedding. I did quite a bit of research before hiring him. As a former event planner I know that you can't please everyone so I was not scared away when I read a few bad reviews out of hundreds. We hired him on very short notice and he responded like a pro. He did not even blink when I showed him our long list of song requests. We didn't have a rehearsal so a lot could have went wrong but everything went perfect. I told him a minute before the ceremony started the timing of each song as we walked down the aisle and he nailed them. He was on time, professional, fun, and went with all of our last minute requests. The photo booth was a huge hit and all of our guests had a great time. I could not have asked for better service from a DJ and I would highly recommend him to anyone planning an event.

    Jim S.

    Silicon Forest Entertainment was incredible! He is very responsive and adaptive to the crowd. Putting on an event for college over 500 freshmen students can be difficult but he had them dancing all night. Even before doors opened he had music blaring and ended the night with a spectacular set. Thank you for everything!

    Michael Trevino DJ'd for me for my daughters Sweet 16 Birthday party, at the Fairgrounds, in Salem, Or. Him and his crew did an amazing job! We were so pleased with everything they did for us, which includes set up, take down, timelines, the lighting and of course the music. We couldn't have asked for a better person, to get the job done. We will recommend him and his crew to all of our family and friends and their friends! And if we ever need a DJ again, we will for sure, be contacting him again! 😃
