“We absolutely loved DJ Samir with Stumptown DJs! Samir facilitated the best dance party I have ever experienced at a wedding! He was so accommodating and friendly and despite me only giving him a handful of songs and notes on our overall vibe, he curated the absolutely PERFECT playlist for our wedding reception as well as kept the flow going through cocktail hour and dinner. and dancing. I also really appreciated that he did not try to insert himself into the proceedings (like I’ve seen other DJs do) and just announced when dinner was ready, released tables, announced dances and speeches etc when needed, in addition to playing great music. Our guests kept raving about what a great DJ he was and what a stellar dance playlist he created for us. I kid you not, he had everyone up and dancing, even my older relatives who I thought for sure might sit songs out. Thank you DJ Samir for being so great! And thank you to the whole Stumptown Team for making our wedding planning process easy and stress free!“
