Eric was wonderful to work with! I gave him a ton of instructions and he followed them to the letter - such as when and how to announce traditional dances and my made up alternative to the bouquet toss ritual. When we talked about music he advised that I give him a list of 10 "must play" songs and 10 "DO NOT PLAY" songs. Then I gave him a longer list of songs for him to work with. I didn't expect him to run down the list, but put my trust in his judgement. I was totally relaxed the whole night and never worried about whether the music was "ok." It was fabulous! Eric incorporated the must plays into the mix and most of the other songs on my list. People danced continuously from after the traditional dances to the end of the party. Eric just did an awesome job. And an important piece of advertising - he's not an overpowering presence. He made announcements when I asked him to. He didn't use talk to work the crowd - it was all in the music!!!
