$400 - $1200 per event
My wife and I provide quality music entertainment and atmosphere to both private and public events, including weddings, birthdays, holiday and theme parties. I have over ten years of experience that includes entertaining crowds as a DJ and MC. I have also DJed college radio stations as a student and later on as a volunteer (URI WRIU 90.3FM Kingston RI and Brandeis 100.1FM Waltham, MA).

I provide a high-quality sound system with lighting and a fog machine, if requested. Whatever your musical tastes, expectations and presentation preferences may be, we will work closely with you to ensure that the highest quality service is provided. I am an audiophile with a background in historic research and archival management. This has exposed me to the never-ending treasures of recorded sound. Though my strengths are in the genres of funk, soul, rock, hip hop, EDM and jazz, I continue to explore new sounds everyday. Music is a positive force in our lives. It has the power to enhance our mood and outlook on the world. I keep this in mind every time I have the opportunity to share my skills and knowledge of music with others. My prices are reasonable and simple, never involving any hidden or complicated fees. A service contract agreement will outline all the details that are negotiated between you and I.

Reviews from gigs prior to joining Gigmasters (thumbtack)

"We booked him for our wedding of summer 2015. We didn't even meet in person till the day exchanged a few emails told him what we liked and didn't like and everything was PERFECT the dance floor was packed till the last song. I couldn't ask for more. I would definitely book him for any other event I plan."

"Eric was the perfect DJ for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah! His music rocked. The dance floor was full for the whole party (pleasing young and old alike), and his light show transformed the space into a very festive environment. He was great at leading games for the kids, and also read the crowd well to determine whether a slow song, another game, or more fun fast dancing was best. He was a pleasure to work with ahead of time: came out to see the venue and plan the layout, shared his playlists, took requests, and face-timed with me and my daughter to get to know her and her style before the event. A lot of friends at the event told me how great the DJ was. I will definitely hire him again and would highly recommend him."

"I hired Eric not knowing much about him, only through thumbtack reviews. Much to my surprise, he was outstanding !! He had a very difficult task of entertaining a function hall filled with kids ages 15-17. He had the room dancing all night, giving it a club-like feeling with his light system. I was so happy to see 60+ kids having a blast. He interacted with the kids and played all their favorite music selections. He was pleasant, professional, helpful and well worth his rate. I highly recommend DJ Boots for your next event."

"Eric did an incredible job! He was flexible and responsive when it came to requests. He managed to make a whole room of high school kids happy with song choice - which is nearly impossible! The light set up was great and really made the night more festive.
Thanks for everything!"

"Eric "DJ Boots" was extremely accommodating to our staff and guests at our recent museum event. He was completely personable and played a wonderful selection of music that got guests excited. Eric is our new preferred DJ at the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation in Waltham, MA and I would definitely request his services in the future and recommend DJ Boots to all of my clients!"

"Eric was the DJ at my wedding in Newport, RI and he was fantastic. Fun, easy to work with and affordable. My family had so much fun dancing, the only down side was when the music ended. I highly recommend Eric!"
Christina D. on August 17, 2014

"Eric is an outstanding DJ and an absolute professional. He is so enthusiastic about music and genuinely connects with his audience. What stands out about Eric is that unlike other DJ's, he approaches his role as a DJ more like that of an artist, almost reading people's minds and tapping into what they really want to hear."

Eric was fantastic all the way around. From contract negotiation to accommodating an extension of time. He worked directly with my daughter on the play list and developed a list the was perfect for the dinner hour and then had the kids dancing all night. Every one of the older generation was also up dancing - quite an accomplishment for a Sweet 16. I didn't have to think about anything - he made it so easy - and that's a huge plus, once less worry is always welcome when planning an event. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for DJ entertainment.
