From the ceremony to the reception DJ Tom Walter was perfect. He assisted with planning music for every event of the evening as well as helped coordinate vendors and keep the flow smooth. His timing was impeccable as we transitioned from step to step and I could not have survived the day without his help from planning through implementation. This was by far the most important element of the wedding experiance and Tom was my sanity during it all.

We used Modern Era Weddings for our wedding this month. Thomas P. Walter was our DJ and he couldn't have done a more perfect job. Tom made sure things ran smoothly during our cocktail hour when we were running late due to pictures. He kept all of our guests entertained. I didn't have to worry! He was so personable and professional. Our guests literally danced all night. He made sure everyone stayed on the dance floor by playing the perfect mix of old school/new hits. Tom was very easy to work with, answering all my texts and emails promptly. When we asked him if he could get a few extra songs he didn't have on his playlist, he did so without hesitation. We were 100% happy with Tom at our wedding. I highly recommend him!

DJ Tom was the best! He was very responsive and helpful in the planning stages. He understood our desire for minimal mic chattiness, and was also open to a little research when we named a few unknown artists we wanted for cocktail hour. Our timeline for the day was slightly thrown, but Tom was right there with us at every step! We later had lots of guests compliment the smooth musical transitions, and I almost missed dessert because I didn't want to leave the dance floor!

Modern Era Weddings is unquestionably the best DJ service in Pittsburgh. The planning process from beginning to end was extremely easy and professional. The online planning tools made it so easy to create a timeline for our wedding and pick out the songs for the processional, dances, etc. Mike set us up with Thomas P Walter to be the DJ for our wedding. Tom was amazing as the DJ/MC. Picking the music and making a timeline was probably the most difficult part of the planning process for me and I walked away from my final meeting with Tom feeling confident that the day would be perfect and the music would be as well. Tom really was the master of ceremony keeping the day running smoothly, making announcements, and most importantly keeping the dance floor packed! I had numerous guests comment on how fun our wedding was because of the music and dancing. Besides the “special dance” songs I picked out, Tom was in control of the music played and it was on point. We had a mix of young and older guests and everyone enjoyed the music selection. Modern Era and Tom definitely helped to make my wedding day memorable and one of the most special days in my life. I am completely satisfied with Modern Era, and Tom is, hands down, one of the best DJ’s in the area.

DJ TOM! What can I say..??!.AMAZING. We had a formal wedding at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort but we are not formal when it comes to the dance floor! We live in Arlington, VA and found this company through stellar online reviews. Tom came out of his way on his own time to meet us months before the wedding when we were visiting for our tasting at the resort. He is the coolest guy but very passionate and professional about making your day the most amazing as possible. He really cares about the couple and what they want. From Sinatra style music at cocktail hour to oldies, 90's, Today's hits and even a little EDM at the end he made every transition as smooth as could be. He's a great MC as well. We even had a special entrance song and group dance to Uptown Funk right before dancing kicked off. He was flawless through every step. Thank you Tom for being an awesome part of our wedding! You're the best!

My husband and I got SO MANY compliments about the music at our wedding! DJ Tom was AMAZING! He was easy to work with at both of our consultations, was willing to communicate via email and text and was very easy to relate to. He understood our musical taste perfectly and was a fun person to have at our wedding. The company's website was also a tremendous tool in helping us prepare for the big day. Thank you so much for helping to create a wonderful night that we'll never forget!

I loved working with Modern Era DJs for my wedding! My dj Tom Walter was amazing! He was so helpful, flexible and friendly. He met with me ahead of time to plan everything out and agreed to do the ceremony and cocktail hour music as well. The music for both was fantastic. As for the reception, the music was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a more fun dance mix. If you want your wedding to be a great party then he is your guy. He really does a good job playing to the crowd and keeping the dance floor full. He was also super attentive during our wedding day helping out with various things! If you are looking for your wedding to be a fun time, then definitely go with Modern Era!

We had DJ Tom Walter for our wedding and he was AMAZING. Everyone always told us that the DJ makes a wedding, and he sure made ours incredible! Everyone was on the dance floor even on the first song and there wasn't one song played where no one was dancing. Tom was very professional and is such a nice guy. He took time to come around to Frankie and I to make sure everything was going as we wanted and that the timeline was correct and how we wanted it to be. Tom was always there to answer my (million) questions and was very helpful at our meetings. He was very easy to contact if we needed anything prior to the wedding. We would absolutely recommend Modern Era Weddings and especially DJ Tom Walter!

I can't even begin to express how much we appreciate everything that Tom, Josh, and Josh did to make our wedding day so incredible. From our very first meeting, they made us feel confident in our decision to use Modern Era for our DJ, Videography, and Uplighting needs. The Uplighting: We chose a venue 2.5 hours south of Pittsburgh. Knowing that it wasn’t an easy trip, we assumed that we would give the dimensions of the room, and that would be that. This was not the case. Though we said it wasn’t necessary, Josh drove down during our final walk through to plan the lighting. He drove 5 hours round trip for a 10 minute meeting with us. I gave him an idea of what we were looking for and he nailed it. And it was a huge relief leading up to the wedding knowing that he had actually seen the venue and created a plan to make the room look exactly as I imagined. DJ and Videography: Tom and Josh were UNBELIEVABLE!! I cannot recommend them enough. Tom was always available to answer any questions that we had leading up to the day. He was so thorough in his planning that we had no doubt that things would run anything but smoothly. He made sure that every request we had was fulfilled. He kept the dance floor packed from the first song to the last. This, by the way, ended up being much later than planned. Everyone was having such a great time, Tom and Josh extended the evening an extra hour without hesitation or extra cost to us! What other company would do that?? They made our wedding so much fun for us and for our guests. No words I can write will ever do them justice. We still have people reaching out to let us know what an amazing day they had. We owe it to Modern Era. You guys went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough.

Our DJ was Tom Walter and he was amazing! He did the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and it was better than I could have ever imagined. He always responded to me email questions very quickly and was very flexible with the meeting place & time prior to the event so we could discuss details. They also use a DJ intelligence site that allowed us to pick music for all the special areas of the day. He was very professional but also very fun to work with and everyone loved the music he played during our reception, people didn't want the dancing to end!!

DJ Tom was absolutely great! His laid back demeanor clicked with us when we met but he was also very good about communicating with us, setting up our timeline, our "must have" songs, our "no way" songs & had some fantastic ideas along the way that we would've totally missed. He also helped us with some last-minute uplighting that just made the venue pop. Tom played appropriate music for cocktail hour & dinner, kept the toasts on time & opened up our dance floor with "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" and the party didn't stop until the lights came up. I would definitely recommend Tom for any wedding couple looking for a great party!

DJ Tom Walter was the BEST DJ EVER!!!! we had the best time with him! My husband and I can't stop talking about how excellent he was! All of our guests complimented us on him because the music was great, and the dance floor was packed. We had all different ages and tastes in music and everyone was on the dance floor! He was AWESOME!!! DJ Tom was professional, and kept us on track with time. He kept the event on time and on track, always checked in with what was going on. To me he ran the reception and did a fantastic job on making everything flow. He accommodated our requests to a T. He created a great cocktail hour and dinner ambiance and when the party started, it started! and didn't stop until we had to absolutely leave! We had a blast at our wedding and DJ Tom was a huge reason for it!!

Originally, we booked DJ Bill for our wedding over a year in advance. A few months prior to our wedding, we found out that he was double booked on accident. Modern Era weddings worked quickly with my wedding planner to work out a deal and correct their mistake. We ended up with DJ Tom and I must say, though I liked DJ Bill at a friend's wedding where I had initially heard of him, I LOVED DJ Tom. He was fun, funny and energetic. He kept the music upbeat and made sure the wedding flowed. We had people on the dance floor all night long!! I'd recommend DJ Tom AND DJ Bill to anyone getting married. Excellent service. We even had a monogram created which we received many compliments on and DJ Bill made my dad and me a mix for our father/daughter dance that everyone loved!!! Modern Era Wedding is the best in the business!!!

Tom from Modern Era was our wedding DJ and let me tell you, he is nothing short of AMAZING!! Our guests complimented how much fun they had thanks to our DJ. Tom also goes out of his way to make sure that the bride and groom have everything that they need for the day (drinks and appetizers during photos were the perfect touch)!! Another great thing that Tom did was to check in with the other vendors (wedding planner, photographer, videographer) to make sure that everyone stayed on the same page with the timeline and that no important moments were missed on camera. He stayed on point with the music we wanted to have played and kept the dance full packed the whole night. Tom was GREAT!
