We really stressed over picking the right DJ because we've been to some really boring wedding receptions and we wanted to have a party-vibe for our reception! Pike receptions 100% delivered the vibe we were searching for! This was achieved through the multiple phone interviews we had we Bruce Pike, the owner, and Ernie, our actual DJ, and several emails with Elizabeth, who I think was an administrative assistant of sorts (sorry Elizabeth if this is not your title, but you were super helpful regardless!). Pike production also had us fill out an extensive form regarding the timeline of wedding day, the services we were asking for, and the types of songs we like in general to get a feel for what we were looking for before Ernie even spoke with us. Ernie was very easy to talk to and was a great during our reception! I was very indecisive about a couple songs but Ernie was super cool about it and gave me up until the day before the wedding to make the decision. That really helped with stress relief. I feel like Pike Productions's process is very efficient in figuring out what you want your vibe to be for your wedding day, which was very important to us since we didn't want to be another boring wedding reception ;) I don't have many pictures to share because everyone put their phones down (for once) to party hardy which is a good sign!!

Pike Productions was amazing! They did the drapes and lighting for our wedding, as well as providing a guitarist for our ceremony. We were able to speak directly with Bruce Pike, and Elizabeth as our POC up until moments before the wedding began. She was responsive, helpful, and accommodated a last minute need for an additional drape. The staff arrived on time and hung all our bistro lighting quickly to ensure everything else could be set up on time. I would highly recommend working with Pike Productions for any wedding needs — they are a fantastic vendor!

We contacted Pike Productions about providing sound equipment for our wedding reception. Our initial quote, however, seemed a bit steep ($750 for two speakers and a technician), so we decided to just rent the speakers without a technician. I had to email and call the representative multiple times before I got a response, but finally got an updated quote - for $750. When I asked why the price was the same, the representative said that they had to pay their delivery drivers for their time. When I pointed out that the original quote did not include "driver compensation," she then revealed the true reason - Pike Productions does not do events for less than $750. This is fine, and obviously the company's prerogative, but the representative was super rude about it, telling me I could "just Google somewhere cheaper," and that "they're trying to run a business." Giving us the run-around for so long also meant that we were left scrambling, less than a month from our wedding day, to find audio equipment. Being told up front that they didn't want our business would have been preferable.

Bruce Pike was recommended to us by our caterer, Well Dunn, and we are so grateful for the recommendation. We used them for both our ceremony and reception, which were held at the same place (Torpedo Factory Art Center). They had great customer service, and the provide a number of online planning tools that make the planning process go very smoothly. Our DJ was super professional - he managed our event and helped keep the flow going, but without being too overbearing or "cheesy" as DJ's can sometimes be. He followed our instructions and requests and when he did improvise (which we encouraged him to do), we loved what he did! We spent the night dancing and having a blast.

We loved Bruce Pike! He added so much to the celebration of my son's and daughter-in-law's wedding. Bruce was warm and accommodating and in the pre-planning stages, his guidance was helpful to them on pacing and music choices. They had a day-time wedding and we worried if people would even dance. No fear at all - Bruce had everyone dancing for much of the day. He is a delight and we would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Where to begin... Bruce is perfection! My venue gave a list of recommended bands and DJs and when I spoke to Bruce, I knew immediately he was the one. He is so personable, friendly, and had me laughing within seconds. His staff is incredible to work with as well, and was so responsive to all my questions over the past year! We used Bruce for ceremony music, and he literally was on the phone with me for close to an hour a couple weeks before the wedding helping me pick the perfect versions of the songs I wanted for the prelude and processional. In addition to the ceremony, Bruce seriously rocked at the reception. Our dance floor was packed! The entire night. I can't recommend him enough!! I hope our paths cross again someday, Bruce! You were so great to work with!

We got Bruce himself as the DJ and he was fantastic. We had specific Indian music that we had to play for certain parts of the ceremony that I had asked my brother-in-law to be in charge of (assuming that wasn't part of Bruce's job) but when Bruce got to the venue, he took it over, listened to what my dad told him, and did it perfectly. He played a great mix of Indian and regular music for our "fusion" wedding - I also saw that he noticed when people weren't dancing and would switch it up to get people on the dance floor and moving. He could just read the audience very well. He also (very nicely) was able to block requests from the guests that we had already told him were on the "non-play" list - like the chicken dance etc. He was absolutely the best, and was a big part of why our wedding/reception was so much fun. Highly highly recommend this company!!!!

Bruce Pike was an amazing choice to DJ our wedding! Our friends and family literally danced the entire time! All ages and from lots of different places. So many compliments ever since. Also, he provided a violinist and guitarist for the ceremony and cocktail hour AND did the accent lighting. It was gorgeous. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM and his team!

Bruce Pike was truly instrumental in giving me the wedding day I had always dreamed of! I planned my entire wedding myself and was very anxious about things coming together just right. My second meeting with Bruce was the first time I truly got exited about the wedding because he was so relaxed and happy for me! Bruce was super professional, fun, and really put me at ease. When I asked that the music be a mix of both Latin and American music (my husband's family is from Bolivia), he catered to my individual requests without a problem. It was absolutely perfect. He worked seamlessly with my day-of coordinator and the evening flowed perfectly. Both families could not stop telling me what a wonderful and fun time they had at our reception! I would recommend Bruce to anyone- he is a seasoned pro and will make your wedding as perfect as mine was <3 thanks Bruce :)

Bruce is the best! He was the DJ for my wedding on July 4. I had spoken to a few other DJ's in the area and after talking with Bruce on the phone, I knew he was it! I think a lot of people think they can cut costs on their DJ, but the music is really what keeps the party going at a wedding! Bruce takes his role seriously and is also just an awesome, fun guy! He met with my husband and me a few weeks before the wedding to go over everything. It was great because I felt like he really got to know us. You get to pick your own music with his companies online planning tools, so we could have our must play, maybe play, do not play lists from the extensive music library. He didn't have the song for my Dad and my dance, but he was able to find it no problem. He worked extremely well with all of the other vendors and was very professional. I'd recommend him to anyone!
