Portland Wedding DJ and Event Testimonials
Rich came early and got everything set up. When we walked in he had good tunes going. We did Karaoke but when people didn’t want to sing he had people out on the dance floor. I appreciated that he talked when he needed to but didn’t by any means try to be the center of attention and he wasn’t overbearing.

Rich did a great job at my son’s Bar Mitzvah. He kept the energy at the right level throughout the evening. He kept the kids entertained during cocktail hour with games, which allowed the adults to mingle without a lot of distraction. Then, when it was time to focus on dancing, he played a great mix of music that had young and old alike dancing. We requested a couple slow dances and those were added in at just the right time. Great, memorable evening.

Rich was wonderful to work with. He met our needs thoroughly and was incredibly flexible as the course of our event changed from what we originally thought. He helped us a great deal with timing of certain things we wanted and also completely went with the flow when needed. He stayed on a bit longer as our guests were fully on the dance floor still at the end of our agreed time! Rich is incredibly professional, super friendly and is an excellent DJ. This is the 2nd time we have hired him to DJ an event and we were very pleased both times. I have since recommended Pro DJ’s and will continue to!

When we first began planning a wedding, music was possibly the most stressful factor for us, with so many different generations and personalities present. Rich Ellis took away this anxiety with his professionalism. As early as the first meeting, it was clear he understood the atmosphere we were going for and he accomplished it brilliantly. We were beyond pleased with the music, pacing, and flow of the ceremony and reception. We would absolutely recommend Rich to a friend. Thanks, Rich, for helping make our big day memorable!

Rich really made the audio & music elements of our wedding so easy because we knew he had every aspect covered. The event planner tool on the website made song selection very easy and helped with ceremony and reception structure. In speaking with Rich the week before the wedding, he took the time to understand our wants and he “got our vision” instantly. He is very personable and provided some excellent recommendations based on his extensive experience. It translated into a perfectly seamless event. Some of our favorite memories from the wedding were on the dance floor, so thanks to Rich for reading the crowd well and bringing out everyone’s dance moves. We received compliments several friends and family members on our DJ after the wedding!

Darren Martin (Ce Ce McLain & Steven Martin Wedding) – Portland, OR
Event Date 8-15-15
Extremely professional, from the moment I spoke to Rich on the phone during booking, through the ceremony itself, I cannot express how happy I was with the service. Every single guest I spoke to complimented us on how great the music selection was. I continually told them that except for the “big moment songs…”the selection was all Rich. Honestly, that was always the most important thing to me. I didn’t want to spend time worrying about the details of the music… I preferred giving a description of the crowd, a few music styles that we liked, and letting the DJ read the crowd. Thats exactly what I got and I couldn’t be happier.

We highly recommend Rich Ellis at ProDJs.

My wife and I could not have asked for anyone more professional and in tune with his job and reading the atmosphere of the crowd.., Rich had this party going so well that we asked him to stay an hour later and he had no problem with that. Rich was a professional from head to toe and I will be hiring him for my future business events. I would recommend Rich to anyone looking for an amazing event.

Aloha Costco Employee Club – Aloha, OR
Event Date 1-12-14
When I hired Rich, I was looking for a DJ with a great reputation, who would get the job done. I had no idea what type of music I wanted, and gave Rich very little direction. Rich turned out to be the best choice for my wedding, and went beyond expectations to make the wedding a blast. Our guests came from four different continents, with different music preferences, and Rich was able to find the perfect mix of international songs that kept people dancing until the last song. I have never seen a wedding where so many people stayed and danced until the very end. Rich has preternatural ability to read a crowd and keep them dancing. He did an amazing job, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a great party.

My daughter was very excited to have Rich as her DJ, because she had been to other parties where he had DJ’d and really liked him. He was great for her party! He kept the kids going and having fun. There was never a dull moment. I never had to worry about anything, because he took care of it. He played all the music selections requested and had it all down perfectly. I’m so glad we were able to get him. As soon as we secure a date (in five years) for the next Bat Mitzvah – We want Rich!

Melissa Papasadero & Chris Fisher Wedding – Portland, Oregon
Event Date 8-17-13
I could not recommend Rich Ellis (PRO DJs) enough! Rich was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process and he definitely came through on the day of the wedding. He played all of the (somewhat abstract) music that we suggested, but also balanced it with more popular music that everyone would recognize. I have been working in the wedding industry for over 10 years, so I have seen hundreds of DJs. Seeing that the wedding was not in my home town (so I could not pick a local DJ that I know), I had to go with someone I didn’t know. To be completely honest, Rich was even better than the best DJs I’ve come to know over the past 10 years in the industry. He got the dance floor going and kept it full the entire night. He didn’t play any of the cheesy stuff and everything flowed perfectly. He really is a professional. If anyone is considering him for their wedding, do it. You won’t be sorry. Also, he was much more affordable than some of the other DJs I contacted. I just wish I lived in Portland so I could recommend him to more friends. I’m also happy to answer questions and take emails from anyone who is looking for a client’s experience.

Tammie Mullikin & Scott Isensee Wedding – Scappoose, OR
Event Date 7-20-13
Rich’s questions for us (the bride and groom) during event regarding our preferences was highly appreciated, showing how much care and effort he took to incorporate our choices. We received so many compliments from our guests on the music quality and the dancing experience. Because it was such a great party, we were on the floor during the entire night, and our guests gravitated toward that. Rich’s playlist set the tone and flow of the event very effectively and efficiently; timing was precise from beginning to end. We were also very satisfied with his utmost respect for our music selections, as obscure as a few of them were! We had the time of our lives and can attest that the music, and the DJ behind it, makes the wedding. Thank you, Rich!

Rich helped make the party a success! We were counting on him to entertain the young guests plus get the adults dancing with the kids during the second half of our party. Rich is adaptable and quick on his feet. There was a moment that something occurred out of order (during a candle lighting ceremony–our daughter accidentally skipped calling up her grandparents) and he was able to get things back on track. It was a great party. Liz enjoyed herself! Thank you!! People are still talking about it.

Rich did an AMAZING job at our wedding. He made sure to keep true to our yes/no request list even when immediate family members requested songs on the ‘do not play’ list. He also helped us choose cocktail and dinner music and chose very appropriate songs. This was nice because it helped us check off a minor but still important thing on our list. I would highly recommend Pro DJs. He also drove out to Forest Grove from Portland for NO additional charge.

“Steve, I jokingly teased you about being the “King” of the Bar Mitzvah DJ’s, but there is a lot of truth to it. I know the kids love you, and they are now requesting you for their own upcoming Bar Mitzvah. What better compliment can you receive than from the kids you impact the most? You were very easy to work with, professional, and followed our party time line well. Thank you so much for keeping our celebration running smoothly. If I had a third Bar Mitzvah, I’d hire you again!”

“We just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful party last Saturday night. Like every Bar/Bat Mitzvah party we attend where Steve is the DJ, he brought great energy and creativity, and kept the crowd (both young and old) engaged and entertained at our Bat Mitzvah party. He was especially great to work with in preparation for our event, as we had several special presentations to work with throughout the evening. It is no wonder that we continue to see Steve at so many of our friends’ parties, and why will will continue to recommend him to our friends whose parties have yet to be planned. Thank you AGAIN for such a successful evening! Everyone had a wonderful time!!”

Wendy Kahn (Rebecca Kahn Bat Mitzvah) – Portland, OR
Bat Mitzvah Date 11-21-09
“As the name implies, this guy is definitely a pro. Emily and I had interviews lined up with three different DJs. Rich was the first. After meeting with him, we cancelled our other appointments and hired him because we knew right away that he was the guy. He’s very personable and professional. He agreed to meet us at a Target on a day when we had to get our gift registry done so I wasn’t expecting anything too formal, but he was there right on time with a nice shirt and tie and all the literature we needed to look over. He has streamlined his process for dealing with clients. His website is set up with online payment and music planning utilities. All you need to do is go to his website and select the designated songs (processional, recessional, first dance, last dance, father-daughter dance, etc…). You can also select (from his extensive catalog) that you either definitely want certain songs played or not played so you don’t end up doing the chicken dance or the hokey pokey (unless that is your thing). On the off chance that he doesn’t have a song that you want, he has an upload utility on the website as well. The best thing about Rich is that he does this for a living. It’s not a hobby or extra money. He does fifty weddings a year and he knows how to keep the party going. Just let him run the show and you won’t have to worry about a thing. Everyone will have a good time. In most weddings there are lulls and dead spots in the reception where the guests have to decide if they are going to sneak out now or stick it out, but not at my wedding. People were dancing from the moment they finished eating until it was over. Rich knows just what music to play and when to play it. It was a great time.“

“Rich was amazing! He was so helpful in the planning, that once we met with him, we felt completely relaxed about the reception. We knew it was in good hands and we didn’t need to worry anymore. The night of the event, Rich played great music selections that had everyone dancing. Several people asked if we had hand-picked the music because they couldn’t believe that the DJ had picked such great selections, but he did. He did a great job with the timing and we would highly recommend Rich to everyone! Thank you!”

You exceeded my expectations and I am very honored to have had you as my DJ! I thought the events thoughout the night were spaced out enough and left plenty of time for people to dance. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and will certainly do so should the occasion arise!”

“We were THANKFUL that Rod was there. Not just as a DJ, but he guided the reception. He told us when best to cut the cake, do the toast and all the other details. We were far too preoccupied to even think about those important things. He kept the party going for HOURS. Everyone had a GREAT time. We were nervous to hire a DJ, but he exceeded our expectations, set music that set the mood without being sappy, followed my requests to a T and provided for a WONDERFUL evening. It was a blessing to have someone that I could trust to get the details right. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!”
