Eric has been in the industry for 4 years, but started by running sound in the theater. After he went to school for theatrical directing, Eric found a home for his knowledge in wedding production. He loves being able to use his skills and expertise to make a couple's day smooth and hassle free.
In his spare time he participates in local theater productions, dances east coast swing, and never passes up a chance to work with his hands. For Eric, "Nothing beats the feeling of seeing a happy couple at the end of the night and knowing I helped get them there."
Eric's greatest strength as a DJ is his ability to blend with the guests and act as a host for the evening by staying off the microphone and engaging guests personally to make each individual feel welcome. As he loves to dance, some of his personal favorite songs range from Big Band hits by Benny Goodman and the Stray Cats to modern Caro Emerald and even DNCE.

“Eric from Uptown Entertainment did a wonderful job DJ-ing our wedding. He took our preferences and taste into account and kept the dance floor full all night. Thanks for facilitating such a great party”
“We were recommended to Uptown by a friend who had them DJ for her wedding. She told us they were the best in the area, and she was right! We had Eric as our DJ for our wedding, and he was the best. Met with us before the wedding to make sure we were all on the same page with our musical taste--my now-husband and I agreed immediately after we met him that "this guy GETS US." He was terrific at our reception--they threw in extra uplighting for us, and we couldn't be more grateful. Go with Uptown--you won't regret it!”
This guy gets us.
We are not the typical wedding music couple... we aren't fans of "radio tunes" that get the crowd going... but understand that you want people at your wedding dancing! Eric was not cheesy at all... and from the beginning was over the top thoughtful. He made a Spotify list for us to share so he could get a feel of what we like and incorporate that into the "radio tunes" that please the masses.
My mom liked him so much she forced him to sign our guestbook.
We cannot recommend Uptown Entertainment enough - especially Eric!
