Exactly what we wanted!    posted 10/30/2013

DJ Dean was the DJ for our wedding reception. He was absolutely fabulous. We were very particular about the music that we wanted played and the style of DJ that we wanted, and Dean exceeded our expectations with both. He kept the dance floor full, played the music that we wanted as well as our guest's requests, without being overly "showy". He was extremely professional and didn't need to be the center of attention, but kept the night flowing! We would definitely recommend Dean!

Best DJ Hands Down    posted 11/1/2013

Me and my husband recently got married and we chose Pittsburgh DJ Company because of all the great reviews they had. Of course you never know how they will actually be until the day of the wedding and our DJ Pat Flaherty was absolutely incredible!!! The whole company was always very easy to contact and they responded to emails right away! Pat was so nice and easy to get along with he really tries to accommodate you in any way and tries to make it the least stressful part of planning your wedding. I told him my main goal was to have people out on the dance floor all night and he did just that! Everyone had a blast he had people on the floor that never dance! Absolutely hands down would recommend Pittsburgh DJ Company to anyone who wants a great/fun DJ and I would most def. recommend Pat Flaherty for the DJ, he is absolutely great!!!

Dj Matt Miller    posted 9/30/2013

We had DJ Matt Miller from PGH DJ Co. provide the music services for our wedding reception. Matt was the most polite, professional DJ we interviewed so we chose him for the entertainment. We couldn't be more pleased with his performance and services. He kept the party going all night and was very accomodating to our music requests. I would gladly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a reliable, professional DJ.

DJ Joe!    posted 7/7/2013

We loved having DJ Joe at our wedding. Not only was his DJing great, but he helped throughout the day; arriving early and assisting with our ceremony entrance by coordinating with the string trio we had hired.
He had some special instructions on when to cut off music for our first dance and the father-daughter/ mother-son songs which he did perfectly. Throughout the night he continued to coordinate with the other vendors (like the photographer) to make sure nothing was missed.
Then, when it came time to party he did not disappoint. The entire wedding was on the floor dancing for two hours straight. Without a doubt one of the best memories of the night was when he took our friends' crazy requests to the next level by playing the Harlem Shake.

Couldn't have asked for more    posted 11/7/2013 (updated 11/8/2013)

Dean was a great DJ from start to finish. He kept the event moving along, making sure everything took place when it should from introductions to the bouquet and garter toss.
Dean is very professional, flexible and played some great music to keep the party going. There was never a lull in the dancing, and guests even told me the next day they were recovering from so much dancing. That's what I wanted...great music to keep people on the dance floor and enjoying the party. The feedback we've received after the wedding was how great the DJ was, and having a memorable DJ makes for a memorable wedding. Thanks Dean for making our special day so amazing. Ali and Nate.

Best Wedding DJ ever!    posted 10/3/2013

The Pittsburgh DJ company came highly reccomended, and is worth the cost. Their staff are amazing and they truly care about your ceremony or reception going off without a hitch! Matt, our DJ, did a wonderful job keeping the party going with a great selection of music that kept everyone smiling and dancing! We are so blessed, and will cherish the wonderful memories of that night! We can't say thank you enough! I would also like to thank Janae for helping with some last minute lighting additions!

Pittsburgh DJ Company    posted 9/25/2013

Pat was fantastic to work with for our wedding reception. He was responsive to our suggestions and things we wanted and made his own suggestions based on his experiences. Even though I could not be on the dance floor the entire night, it was never empty. He played a great variety of music which is what we wanted and at one time or another, everyone was on the dance floor. Pat made the reception fun, easy going, and so very memorable.

Effortless!    posted 9/4/2013 (updated 9/4/2013)

I could not have been happier with my choice of Pittsburgh DJ Company, especially Dean McAfee. From the very beginning, I knew I would be satisfied with them. For starters, their prices are RIGHT ON their website and are REASONABLE (not many DJs will do this and are outrageously expensive).
I immediately emailed, and from that day forward received the quickest responses from Janae...the best, nicest, most helpful office coordinator out there!!!
Even better, the day of the wedding, Dean was absolutely amazing! As the bride, you do not want to be worried about your vendors, and with Dean, I did NOTHING! He had everything perfect and ready to go...without needing ME! It was the absolute best not needing to check up on how things are going.
THEN...his music was exactly what I wanted and had people on the dance floor all night. What was the best was how he played ALL of the requests of my guests...which made them feel so welcomed.

I could go on and on about the positive experience that I had with Dean and the rest of the Pittsburgh DJ Company. Thank you for a GREAT wedding!

Best DJ!    posted 9/1/2013

I may be a little biased as it was my wedding, but our dance party after dinner was PHENOMENAL and that had a lot to do with how awesome our DJ was. DJ Dean was incredible and did an amazing job with balancing the playlist so that everyone had a good time - from our young cousins and friends to older family members. Our dance floor was packed for pretty much the entire night, which was exactly what we were hoping for. He also did a great job with dinner - we requested a 90s mix and he created a great atmosphere. He also did a great job of keeping the order of events moving throughout the night - we really didn't need to worry about anything as he would let us know when we needed to get ready for the next part of the evening. I really can't say enough about how great he was - we loved having him at our wedding!

Some Frustraitons - DJ Dean    posted 8/7/2013 (updated 8/13/2013)

When we started to plan our wedding (almost 2 years ago), the DJ was our first vendor (after the venue) that we started looking for. We interviewed several DJ's around the area, since one of the most important things for us was getting the best DJ.

When we read the reviews, we quickly scheduled an interview with DJ Dean because he was one of the DJ's who got five stars. We felt confident reading all the good reviews and were never concerned about him during the planning process.

But the experience on our wedding day was quite a disappointment for the following reasons:

-We made specific notes to him about the type of music we wanted him to play. He started the reception playing music that was not conducive to making people dance. Then I asked my husband to ask him to change the music to something more "dance-able". There was no change, so I politely asked again. Then asked him roughly three more times to please change the music. Then my sister-in-law and father-in-law asked him, and he finally changed it.

-He played most of the songs we requested. However, early on he tended to play a song we requested that got people dancing, but then he would play a song that was usually older, slower and bland, making people go back and forth on and off the dance floor. At some point, some of our guests were making comments: "How can we dance to this?"

-Monogram: We payed for a monogram to be projected behind the head table. You could literally see a background square of light that was crooked. I've been to several weddings and the monograms they used were incredible with just clean distinct letters, without squares of back-lighting. In regards to the uplights, though, those were great.

With all this being said, the music during last two hours of the reception was good and people were dancing. But the stress and worry that went into the beginning of the reception was quite frustrating. We were planning on paying him to stay extra hours, but we changed our minds in the end.

Vendor Comments

This bride has actually given a perfect example of why you SHOULD hire a professional DJ service like Pittsburgh DJ Company...
See, every DJ wants the entire crowd to do cartwheels to the dancefloor as soon as the dancing starts, but that doesn't al...

Dean and Pittsburgh DJ Company are amazing. Best DJ in all of Pittsburgh. He really knows how to get the party started. He isn't on the microphone being annoying either. He lets the party happen by playing the right music. He is super accommodating too. I was late providing all my music choices to him too and he was easily able to accommodate what I wanted and made everything perfect. His uplighting and monograms are great too. I would highly recommend Dean for your wedding or party!

Pittsburgh DJ Company/DJ Pat was amazing!    posted 7/3/2013

We recently had our wedding after over a year of planning. During the planning period, I was so stressed about finding a DJ. I mean, the DJ makes the party and how are you to know if they are going to be good until that day?! We finally found Pittsburgh DJ company and met up with DJ Pat for a consultation. He was down to earth and very helpful in that meeting so we decided to go with him. He made everything easy and listened to our requests. The day of the wedding he was even better than expected. Our guests loved him and were out on the dance floor all night. He played a wide range of music that was fun for everyone. I had so many people come up to me afterwards and say that it was one of the most fun weddings they have been to and honestly, I attribute a lot of that to him. If you're having the same problem I did finding a DJ you can trust, I hope this review helps you!!(I honestly just went by reviews and recommendations from people and held my breath until the day of our wedding haha)

DJ Dean/Pittsburgh DJ Company – Absolutely Amazing!    posted 7/1/2013 (updated 7/1/2013)

DJ Dean literally made our wedding. From day one, we were beyond impressed. My husband spent a lot of time researching DJs as they’re ultimately the “wedding coordinator” and he couldn't have made a better decision. People still rave about how fun our wedding was; saying they couldn't believe people were dancing before the food was even served – and it is all because of Dean and his incredible talent. He got people on the dance floor that say they've never danced at a wedding before! He put on such a show and we were so blown away (even by the amazing up lighting). The minute we got to the reception he put us right at ease - everything flowed so incredibly smoothly. Dean and his fabulous assistant were always one step ahead; they were so on point and organized. And I must add… he was so amazing no one would leave the dance floor… we had to extend our time! Dean: thank you for making our wedding so perfect.

LOVED Pittsburgh DJ Company!    posted 6/11/2013

We worked with Pittsburgh DJ for our wedding, and had a great experience!

DJ Matt Miller was our wedding reception DJ, and he also provided the music and microphones for our ceremony. He was SUPER helpful, very responsive when we emailed him with tons of questions, laid-back yet professional and lovely to work with. He was very accommodating and arranged to skype with us since we wouldn't be in the area to meet with him before our wedding, and even joined spotify so we could share playlists of songs we liked with him!

We also found the event form that Pittsburgh DJ asked us to fill out very helpful, since it kept everything super organized.

We have TONS of pictures of people having sooo much fun on the dance floor, and it was packed for our whole reception.

We would definitely recommend Matt and Pittsburgh DJ!

Pittsburgh DJ Company    posted 6/1/2013

The Pittsburgh DJ company was extremely reliable and responsible during our entire planning process. It was so simple with everything being able to be filled out online, and you can make changes at any time up until the week of your wedding. DJ Matt was fantastic!!! He did such an awesome job of monitoring how our guests were enjoying his music, and if they didn't seem to be feeling a particular song, he would change it almost right away, rather than letting the whole song play out and have people leave the dance floor. Our entire dance floor was packed the whole reception, which was our goal! I would definitely recommend the Pittsburgh DJ Company to anyone needing DJ services, and Matt was a great person to work with through the whole process. Thanks again for helping to make our wedding reception a blast!!
