"I still can't believe our fortune in finding Josh and Vintage Vinyl Events. His personality, musical taste, responsiveness, flexibility and professionalism are unmatched, and he wildly exceeded our expectations. Our wedding was in Montana, and Josh drove from Portland with his choicest records to play both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. His musical selections for both events were absolutely perfect, from soul to latin jazz to disco and funk, and everything in between. He was incredibly fun, flexible, and professional, interacting wonderfully with guests, handling any and all issues that arose during both days, and generally being an enormous help and reassuring presence. The dance party Josh curated for our wedding reception was so absurdly fun I'm surprised the cops didn't come, but even if they would have, they'd have had no choice but to dance. Josh asked us to provide a list of our favorite songs for different portions of the event, and made sure to play all of them at the right time. He was super responsive and accommodating to our requests, incorporating them perfectly into his set. He handled the music for the ceremony beautifully as well, and when rain interrupted our nuptials, put on some of the silkiest beats to entertain our dampened crowd. He handled the renting of all of our sound and lighting equipment, and set it up expertly as well. I cannot recommend Josh and Vintage Vinyl Events enough for your wedding or other event. Truly class and I look forward to the opportunity to work with him again."

"Hands down the best wedding I have ever been to. Not because it was my wedding, but because Josh killed it on the turn tables. With the ear of a seasoned musical time traveller he took us all on a seamless journey from funk and sly to soul then disco to 80s then hip hop and R. Kelly then, just when it couldn't get any better, he sprinkled in some Latin club bangers to take things to the next level. It was a masterpiece. If you are going to pay someone to DJ your wedding choose Josh and VV - they will work with you in the weeks and months leading up to the event to ensure you and your guests are treated to a curated flow of perfect tunes. He was awesome when it came to patience and flexibility - my now wife change the processional at least 10 times and we had "must plays" pop into our heads everyday the week before the wedding. Josh took it all in stride and was always available to chat flow and vibe. Also, his library of vinyl (supplemented with everything else digitally) is killer and he is able to understand what you are looking for based on few songs then introduce you to so many more cool tracks along the same lines creating a track list that will have people talking about more than just your drunk uncle. On the other hand, if you feel like you haven't heard 'don't stop believing' enough, hire a top 40 wedding DJ and preset your am/fm to 100.3 Bottom line: I highly recommend Josh and VV."

"Josh was absolutely amazing during the entire process. We both are pretty laid back people and we wanted our wedding to be pretty low key but we had to have good music. We met josh for happy hour to kick it off and went over likes and dislikes based on artists and genres etc.. He then put together a very helpful google doc where we could add our "10 must plays" and also tweak things like cocktail hour music, dinner music, etc etc. Very responsive throughout the entire process and I cannot stress how awesome the playlist he put together was. I would highly recommend Josh and his services to anyone and will definitely be checking out his local gigs when he is playing."
- Patrick Theiss
"Josh was fantastic to work with. He was very patient with our indecisiveness and easy to work with. He was also very accommodating with our weird schedules. I am pretty sure my husband will be talking about the music from our wedding forever, it was the perfect soundtrack to our special day. My parents, his parents and all of our friends also gave him the stamp of approval and were raving about the music all night. 5 stars all around!"

"I'm so glad I found Vintage Vinyl! It was an absolute pleasure working with Josh and I recommend him highly to anyone in need of a DJ. I had scoured the market for wedding/event DJs and he offered the perfect balance of great musical taste/selection, professionalism and affordability. Josh took the time to meet with me and my now-husband to discuss musical direction/day-of timing/all the nuts and bolts and was super responsive during the entire planning process. Perhaps most important however, is that fact that he kept the dance floor packed all night! Thanks, Josh!"
- Stacey Inderabudhi
"Josh was awesome to work with! When we first met Josh we laid out our musical tastes and ideas for our wedding. We were all on the same page right away. It was so easy. We had a few consultations and never had any questions about what he would deliver because he was so professional and organized. He guided us through everything. He showed up on-time, provided great MC services, queued the music right on schedule, and threw a really fun dance party! He was also a snazzy dresser. We want to throw another party so we can hire him again!"
- Derek & Larissa
"We literally can't say enough about how awesome Josh is. We are so lucky to have found him to DJ our wedding. He has a serious knack for music. We gave him a very wide array of choices and he blended them together perfectly to make everyone get up, dance and have a good time. Everyone at our wedding said the music was perfect. Josh even let my brother take the mic to sing a few songs. He was responsive, friendly and a true professional. I recommend Josh wholeheartedly for any DJ needs." - Mary Kochiss
"Vintage Vinyl Events provided DJ services for our wedding on 6/11/16. I communicated with Josh throughout the process and especially during the booking stage, and our DJ was Sean (DJ Battles). I was most impressed with how hard Josh and our DJ, Sean, worked to personalize their services for our wedding. From meeting us at a pub in our neighborhood a couple of months beforehand to go over our musical personalities to providing us with a Google spreadsheet where we could enter our song ideas and MC needs, these guys sought our input every step of the way and went the extra mile to make sure we were getting exactly what we wanted. Josh was super responsive in our emails back and forth while we determined price, availability, and compatibility (including a few changes on my end regarding timing and such). Sean did a great job the day-of to create a playlist that flowed from cocktail hour through our brunch reception and into dancing, all while staying true to our tastes and style. These guys truly care, and they take the time to get it right. Plus, they're spinning vinyl, which is pretty awesome! Not your cookie cutter DJ service, but not "too hipster" or "too cool" either. Approachable, hard-working, honest, professional, and really chill guys. I found their website really helpful and loved that I could get a taste for the types of fun mixes they come up with beforehand. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants a little something different-- and who is anti-Cha Cha slide!"

"Joshua was AMAZING! We got so many compliments on our music, and people were out dancing all night long. I was so sad to tell him we were to tired to keep partying and pick our last few songs to shut the night down. Through the whole process Joshua was kind, understanding, and SUPER responsive to any e-mails and questions. From our first meeting I knew he understood music, and understood what I wanted from music. Plus the vinyl factor for our vintage wedding was way cool. I seriously could not recommend him enough. Go to his website and listen to some of his playlists, you will be sold!"
- Jessica Williams
"Josh was everything we could have hoped for. The time we had to plan our wedding from our engagement to our actual wedding date was short, so we were very stressed. Josh was very flexible on every one of our requests. He went above and beyond and agreed to meet with us a second time to go over the final details of the ceremony a week before the big day. He literally read my mind and was able to pick songs that fit our wedding perfectly. My husband and I were so pleased with him. We felt safe and trusted him every step of the way. He's affordable and the best guy for the job!"
- Courtney Prevost
"Josh did an awesome job from start to finish and earned our highest recommendation. Several of our guests told us "your DJ is killing it" and we agree! We considered a band or DJ from a large company, but instead we decided to hire Josh to play vintage vinyl and handle the MC duties for our reception. We're so glad we did! He was very receptive, flexible in adapting to our needs, and a really good guy."
- Bryan & Julia Rookey
"I cannot sing Josh's praises enough! I hired him for our 1 year anniversary party; instantly, Josh created a lively atmosphere that truly kept the party going. Josh's positive, calm and professional demeanor make him easy to collaborate with--and I absolutely loved all of the RAD music he played throughout the night. I highly recommend Josh's services and hope to work with him again in the future."
- Gina at Madewell PDX
"Josh did a really good job at my wedding... He was extremely thorough with his communication before our big day and even during the wedding. He had no problem grabbing the mike and directing people to food or to the dance floor."
- Justin Green
"DJ DEEP SPACE brought our office holiday party to life! He curated a mix specifically tailored to our needs and was really flexible to what we wanted. He played actual records the whole time, which really added a nostalgic feel that you can't really create with an iPod or computer. I heard from numerous employee's after our firm party that they really liked what he was playing. I would highly recommend his services if you are in need of a professional DJ that not only adds great music to your party, but also makes it look good too! We will be hiring him in the future!"
- Jonathan Preston, Klarquist Sparkman LLP.
"Vintage Vinyl Events DJ'ed our wedding and they were amazing. They played some of our specialty records at what seemed like the most opportune times throughout our reception. They made the party happen into the wee hours of the night, and truly helped make our wedding a night to remember."
