About US


DJ, Celebrity Live Music, and pro Karaoke by the winner of the "Best Of 2012 Award" at Gigmasters.com. #1 DJ in Oregon there for 5 years.
I'm new to WeddingWire and EventWire, but I've been the #1 DJ at Gigmasters.com for 5 years and received their 'Best of 2012 Award.' I've also received 'Elite Pro' status at Thumbtack.com, where only 1% of their vendors receive that honor. Until I receive more reviews here at WeddingWire,
below are my unsolicited reviews
from Gigmasters.com. I specialize in knowing and loving every era and style of music (except offensive rap) from the '20s to current.

My website is: . My phone number is: 503-650-8840.





For Weddings and Events:
I've done hundreds of ceremonies, receptions, events and parties of all kinds, and therefore know just what to do - including emceeing and coordinating events - and the right songs to play to make your event great. And this is all done within the parameters (out of all the wedding and reception and event possibilities and music styles) that you choose and then communicate to me via my Ceremony and Reception and Event Preferences sheets that I email to you. Plus I can go over options with you. But generally I just play the hits from the eras and styles you choose on my sheet, and just the ones that have proven to be the most danceable and that make it so people can't resist the dance floor :-) But you can also bring any CDs or iPods with songs that are your favorites ' or I can purchase them ahead of time (no expense to you. But be sure that they are really danceable and really popular. Otherwise you risk the dance floor clearing ' unless you just want them for listening or a special dance). I'm not an overbearing DJ, but do interact with the crowd in a fun way if it feels right. You can see my song list and a video demo here and at my website. But I do bring over 5000 songs with me. If you want "lights," what I have works great and are a lot of fun. Plus they make the dance floor more inviting. You can see them in the video at my website. My attire can be casual, dressy casual, suit or tuxedo.

There are also the options of karaoke and/or live music. Regarding live music, I've had an internationally bestselling CD as a sax player, which is good for dinner/cocktail music, and I'm a former member of The Tokens, the band who had the original hit The Lion Sleeps Tonight - which I sing. You can also see those in the video demo.

Regarding the karaoke option, I bring over 1000 songs that are mainly just the hits from all eras and styles. Let me know if you'd like me to email you my list. Lights would be $50 extra, the live music and karaoke would each be $100 extra. One thing to keep in mind regarding karaoke, is that my system is state of the art in that it is computer driven and not disc driven. That means the time between songs is much quicker. Also, the singers are given a professional treatment with recording studio equipment (compressor/limiter, reverb and digital delay) and therefore sound a lot better. And there is the option of wireless microphones or wired microphones, either on mic stands or hand held. And the display is a 23' HDMI flat screen. Plus I can get any special songs requested.

It should help your confidence in booking me to notice the above-mentioned awards that I received, which means that I'm a real client and crowd pleaser, given what they are looking for. My only focus at your event is that you and your guests are happy :-)


(The following are not quotes that I asked for. They were just sent to me. Below them are the Gigmasters reviews.)
"It was very special for us to have found you to participate in our very special day.
Amidst all the musicians and DJs in Portland, I feel like I asked for "the best" and that is what I received!
Roger and I will look forward to events with you in the future. You were wonderful Dennis. Thank you!!"
Carol and Roger Jensen, The Bride and Groom


"
You are definitely the best
, I would say twice as good as any live music I've ever heard, even when we've gone out. I'm also glad about how you announced everything perfect! We got loads of compliments from friends who said that you really had a lot of talent!! I can't wait 'til my sister gets married, we'll definitely have you back!!! Or to anyone, for that matter, we'll definitely recommend you."
Dave and Diane Gyarts, The Bride and Groom

"We've done hundreds of weddings here and I've never seen the dance floor so packed and the crowd have such a good time as tonight."
Merriweather Golf Club employee, Hillsboro, Oregon, 12/21/12

'I've never seen them have such a great time!'
Rachel Torchia, Event Coordinator, Northwest Academy Prom, 5/29/10

"We had our first call today to get ready for the Komen Race for the cure, and one of the first questions was 'Do we get to have the same DJ'? The group was absolutely thrilled with your level of service and help that we are hoping you are available again." (This will be my 4th year in a row with them)
Sue Dionne, Wells Fargo, 9/18/10

"Dennis, Thanks for making the reunion such a wonderful experience. I will definitely give you rave reviews for future reunion events. You made the reunion! Thanks!"
Arlene O'Brien, Reunion Co-ordinator, 10/16/10

"Thank You again for dj'ing the party. You were a total hit. I would be happy to be a reference for you if anyone should ask."
Sue Schoolcraft, July 21, 2012

"Dennis set a great atmosphere both for dinner and dancing (and everything in between!!!). He has a great sense of the crowd and is phenomenal at playing the sax. He also kept the party rockin by bringing out both the young and the old to the dance floor. It was a complete pleasure to meet and work with Dennis. He made our wedding day extra special."
Darby Binder, Bride, 8/18/2012

"We had a wonderful time and we know it is partly because you were there playing music for us constantly! It was so nice to not have worries about when to start the different pieces of ceremony music. Thank you for all your helpful suggestions throughout the evening also! Since we had never done anything like this before, we really had no idea what to expect. Everything was perfect and we know we owe it in part to your expertise! Thanks again...we will be quick to recommend you to others we know!"
Wayne and Barb Bennett, Groom and Bride, 8/28/10

Dear Dennis, Thank you so much for your participation in the inaugural 2012 Rock 'n' Roll Portland Half Marathon! This event would not have been the enormous success it was without your enthusiastic and rockin' performance. We hope that you would consider returning for next year's event. Please accept our most sincere thank you.
Erika Delemarre, Entertainment Manager, Rock n' Roll Portland Half Marathon

Good Morning Dennis, I just want to say thank you, one more time, on behalf of the Entertainment Solutions team and myself. We can't thank you enough for working flawlessly with us. The 2013 Rock N Roll Portland 1/2 Marathon was an absolute success! Sitting in the lead vehicle I was able to get great feedback about your stage from my employees as well as some of the runners and stage managers!

Kristina Wilson, Entertainment Solutions

"Dennis was very easy to work with and very flexible. He played sax music for our dinner earlier in the evening and had everyone wondering where in the heck I found this guy! I am still getting emails about how wonderful he was at both dinner and the dancing! Later with the dancing we had a Dancing With The Stars theme and he had all our requested music and played along with changing schedule all night. He was fantastic to work with!! I highly recommend Dennis!"

"Dennis was exceptionally professional and arrived right on time. He was very in tune with what it was we wanted, and if in doubt, would ask for clarification. We especially liked his pre-event sheet, which he requested for us to complete in advance, describing what it was we needed from him. The DJ, good or bad, can either make or break your party. Dennis made our event a great party and we would recommend him to anyone who needs a DJ."
