Absolutely amazing!! My strongest recommendation
Patrick was the perfect DJ for our wedding. During the consultation/planning phase, Patrick was extremely patient, cooperative, and excellent with his communications. I could tell very quickly that he was a charming and genuine person, and his pitch and introduction were very visibly genuine. He really stood out against other vendors I spoke with, especially the ones that were organized as "entertainment companies" -- pitches from those places generally came off too rehearsed, formulaic, and sales-y. On the wedding day, Patrick's execution was precise and impeccable. Working with the day-of coordinator, he knew exactly where to set up and when, making introductions and announcements with perfect precision. As for the playlist, oh my, I was completely blown away. I had provided a playlist to use for inspiration, and he completely nailed it based on my suggested playlist. It was exactly the kind of music we were looking for, and I honestly could not have chosen a better playlist myself. All the guests had an amazing time. I would even say that for many of our good friends, I have never seen them having that much fun. For my wife and me, it was truly the best day of our lives and the most fun we've had. Thank you Patrick for helping us with this very special day :)
Reachout is the BEST!
"Patrick is by far one of the best DJ's I have worked with in my tenure as an event planner. I have collaborated with countless vendors over the years at some of the top venues in & around NYC and he truly stands out. He is super kind, easy going, organized, professional and most of all he crushes it on the music and keeps the party going. He does a great job of getting to know what the client wants and building out from there. He is also a great MC, never over the top or cheesy. He will always keep the ambiance elegant, fun and cool. I have worked with him on weddings, fundraisers and even hired him for my own birthday! Can't recommend Reachout Events enough!" - Maureen Tussing
Event Planner's Dream DJ!
"REACH DJ’d a recent wedding for me where the guests were mainly professional musicians and DJ’s. That’s a tough Timon! But his ability to read the crowd and pace is sets was an art form unto itself. He got the entire room on the floor, even those who typically shy away from dancing. His presence behind the decks is so warm and engaging, when I looked out at the room it was a sea of smiles and moves. His musical knowledge is extensive pending him the rare ability to work with almost any client. A large portion of my time is spent finding and hiring DJ’s for events, in a perfect world I would just use REACH. My confidence that he can make that critical time of an event unforgettable is beyond compare. For the wedding I am referring to, REACH DJ’d sets on several nights, always mixing it up it with the same awesome result. He is a pleasure to work with to boot!" - Heather Kleisner
"I’ve known Patrick for several years and was thrilled that we could have Reachout as the DJ at our wedding. It was essentially 25 percent wedding ceremony and 75 percent dance party and Reachout killed it for hours into the night. Almost everyone who commented on the evening said (aside from how great the bride looked) that the music was amazing and it felt like the party of the decade. And that was in no small part because Reachout read the crown and had everyone enthusiastically dancing, connecting with the crowd (from multi-generational to cross-cultural to cross-gender) until we closed out the venue. That takes a DJ with extensive musical knowledge and a feel for when the time is right to mix up what’s on the decks. Reachout worked with us on a playlist, hit our special tracks, but brought so much more to make our wedding fabulous. Patrick’s warm and engaging personality, experience as an artist, and passion for music makes his performance as a DJ unforgettable." - Daniel Park
Nothing but positive things!
"Before I even get into my overwhelmingly positive experience, I'll preface this review by praising Patrick's flexibility and responsiveness. Between losing a venue and rescheduling twice due to recent events, Patrick always kept in touch and worked with us up until we were finally able to celebrate our wedding with others. During our initial meet we discussed the venue and what music we were looking for and closer to the date, we sent over a list of songs and discussed timeline specifics. I will be the first to admit my music list was all over the place...from some classic 80s songs to recent alternative/electronic to 90s/00s R&B and HipHop. Patrick seemed completely unfazed and he definitely delivered! The music was spot on and he managed to get a group of people who rarely venture onto the dance floor out and enjoy themselves. It was clear as day that Patrick is a professional and has loads of experience under his belt from the planning, the flow day-of, and most importantly the music selection/transition. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Patrick to anyone." - Tihon Polt
"I just want to thank Patrick again for a wonderful evening of great music and dancing. He was extremely helpful during the process and selection of our music and everyone had a great time. I highly recommend Patrick for any event and want to thank him again for a for everything that he did for our special day!" - Lisa H
Professional, Fun, and Easy to Work With!
"My husband and I loved working with Patrick from the very start. He was warm, flexible, and open to our ideas. The biggest bonus points came when he knew the Filipino Money Dance first hand (!) Leading up to the wedding, he was super responsive and collaborative — even cool with our last-minute song change. Of course, on the day of, he killed it with a great mix of Top 40, hip-hop, and EDM. The music trended a bit better with our 30-something guests rather than the older folks, but overall everyone had a great time. We also appreciated that he allowed us to use his equipment for the ceremony at a reasonable rate. Thank you, Patrick!" - Kristen G
"Reachout DJ'd our wedding in Tribeca and I cannot recommend him enough!! He took the time to talk to us and really get to know us in order to create the perfect music experience. Every one there had an amazing time thanks to his expertise, professionalism, and laid back/fun attitude.Definitely made it a night to remember. Thank you!!!" - Regina D.
Perfect DJ for our wedding
"We couldn't have asked for more out of a DJ for our wedding. Patrick was very professional and responsive amongst all the stress of planning a wedding and very knowledgeable and intuitive mixing the music, especially because our tracks were not traditional wedding dance hits. Highly recommend for a wedding or any party!" - Jerid G.
"Reachout listened to our vision for the music, asked a couple of excellent questions and then crafted a perfect playlist to accompany our night. The music during cocktail hour was literally exactly what we envisioned, and he had people smiling laughing and dancing their socks off from the second he started until the party shut down. He was also easy to contact, always really pleasant and willing to travel out to my neighborhood to make plans and work with my hectic schedule. We really appreciated everything he did to make our day a blast for everyone." - Chelsea Kadish
"Reach killed it!" - Grandma (and everyone else)
"Having Reach DJing our wedding really made it special because everyone heard something they loved. He worked with us on suggestions beforehand and was amazing at making it all flow together. It definitely did not feel like a stale wedding playlist. We have no intention of getting married again, but maybe if Reach is available to DJ." - Amy Mirasola
"The most important thing to us at our wedding was the dance floor. Patrick kept people dancing all night long. The night ended with everyone chanting “one more song!” We’re so thankful that he did a great job mixing in our “must-plays” with other great songs. He was also super respectful of our “do not plays”. Great communication all-around. Super responsive. He even helped us pick a perfect version of the hora. Love Patrick!" - Phoebe Stonebraker
Professional and chill
"Patrick was very professional and knew exactly what kind of vibe my wife and I were going for. He was readily available and was not hard to get in contact with. He is very professional, meeting us in person, trying to find our likes and dislikes, and the general feel of our crowd. At the same time, he was very easy to talk to and all around chill DJ. I cant thank Patrick enough. Everyone at our wedding was having a blast and dancing. My wife and her bridemaid were were breaking it down on the dance floor all thanks to Patricks mixing. I would definitely recommend Patrick, if you are looking for a fun, exciting and memorable wedding!" - Sung Lee
The Perfect Match
"DJ Reachout was a match made in heaven. From the get go he was responsive, professional, friendly, and very collaborative. We are a creative couple who had a very particular/peculiar aesthetic for our wedding and he very quickly became part of our creative team. He worked hard to bring our aesthetic to everything musically and even when guests decided not to follow the prompts or the schedule he rolled with the punches, took charge, and adapted without breaking the magic of what we worked to create.
Everyone from 16-93 danced through the night. I cannot recommend him enough." - Anthony Cole
Incredible Wedding DJ!
"DJ Reach aka Patrick was the perfect choice for our wedding DJ. He is very accommodating and easy to work with, professional and went out of his way to make sure he had everything we needed. His music selections were awesome and he knew just what to play when! Very highly recommended for any weddings/parties/events!" - Jenny McWilliams
Patrick was Great!!!
"We really enjoyed working with Patrick on our wedding day. He helped us out when we needed him the most. I know we were a crazy crowed but he admitted he had fun as well. Patrick has a great style and sense for the ambiance- he is very flexible and open to playing foreign music- he was super responsive and his services are very reasonably priced. I highly recommend him not just for a wedding party but for any party period! Patrick, thanks for everything once again" - Lana Brkic
Did a great job with my wedding
"Patrick did a fantastic job with my wedding. We didn't have a wedding planner for our 70-person bar wedding, so he only had me to deal with, and I'm sure some of my communication was a little last minute. Patrick was always responsive and friendly along the way. A few weeks before the wedding, he met with my fiancé and me to get to know us in advance, and closer to the wedding, he asked me for schedules and plans and song requests. I appreciated his attention to detail ahead of time. He was also flexible! At the wedding, we made a last-second call to move the dancing inside to the bar, and we got off-schedule a few times, and Patrick rolled with it. A great guy!" - Sarah Hammond
A Night I Won't Forget!
"Although Patrick, (Reachout) is listed as a Wedding DJ, after reading his great reviews I decided to book him to provide the music for my 80th Birthday party in a local hotel. On first meeting I was immediately impressed by Patrick;s warmth humor, and professionalism, and by his ability to adapt to any age group. Patrick showed endless patience helping me with my playlist for the night, displaying an encyclopedic knowledge of music and genres. Those 20 years of experience really show!! On the night Patrick arrived promptly with a terrific sound system and equipment. He did a great job as MC, displaying a rare gift for remaining totally focussed while seeming completely relaxed. I had left the music for dancing up to Patrick and he certainly knew what to play as he had the whole room up on the floor from first song to last. Thank you Patrick for making my 80th Birthday Party so very very special!!! Maybe I can book you for my 90th!!" - Virginia C.
"We wanted something off the beaten path but weren't exactly sure how to make it all come together. Patrick did an amazing job at taking the music we chose and adding to it to make the evening cohesive and appropriate for the flow of the evening. He took all the stress out of it, was super pro, really kind and easy to work with. Highly recommend." - A. Bisat
