Eric Herod Entertainment helps brides and grooms create LEGENDARY weddings.

We accept all major credit cards and PayPal payments, and offer payment plans to help you spread out the total fees over your months of planning. Services start at $1295.

Simply the Best!

Eric made our wedding so special and unique to us! He made every guest feel involved and like they were a part of our special day! We have received so many compliments from our guests about the music selection and all the special personal touches Eric works with you to help create. He is truly way more than just a DJ, and he helped create a night that we and our guests will never forget! He even had our parents up out of their seats dancing, which was so special to see! Don't look any further, you will not be disappointed, choose Eric as your wedding entertainment!!

Eric > Everyone Else You're Considering

Eric literally took a rude silly joke I made - that had no place at a wedding - and made it work for me. I can't even explain the level of professionalism it takes to pull off what he did to inject my sense of humor into a formal event like a wedding. If he can do that for me, he can literally do anything you want for you to make the experience exactly what you're looking for. 10/10 Don't even think about using anyone else.

So good my clients asked him to stay longer at the end of the night!

As a wedding planner, I get to work with many DJs. Eric definitely stood out among them all! From his professional, kind, and prompt communication before the event to the fact that he came to the rehearsal and was so flexible when plans changed to keeping the dance floor PACKED all night long, Eric was a joy to work with! He was kind with the other vendors and myself, helpful when we needed to troubleshoot, and so engaging with the crowd. He did such a good job and my clients loved him and his work so much they asked him to stay longer to keep the party going!

Above and Beyond

Eric Herod is a fantastic DJ, Wedding Planner, and person. His patience and kindness (which I think comes from his years of teaching ;)) truly is a gift. He creates an individualized, romantic and FUN reception, which is honestly all any bride or groom would ever want. Thank you does not begin to cut it. DJ Eric was with us every step of the way and I believe our wedding would not have gone half as smoothly without him and his calm guidance. Look no further - Eric is your man!

DJ, MC, Comedian, Wedding Planner and more!

Eric was phenomenal! I really can't say enough good things about him. From the day that we booked with him, he helped guide us through our whole wedding. There a lot of things that happen behind the scenes that, even if you are in weddings, you have no idea about until it is your big day. Eric took care of all of that for us. He was accommodating and VERY patient with us. His signature style kept our reception moving and made all of our guests laugh, cry, and get out on the dance floor. As if all of that was not enough he was receptive to things that we needed as well as being on-time, courteous/professional, and most importantly affordable. We are recommending him to all of our friends!

Eric is the BEST!

Eric was so fantastic, and we are so glad we decided to use him at our wedding. He is WAY more than just your typical DJ. We were able to incorporate so many personal things into our wedding day with him, and we will be forever grateful for the experience he was able to provide us. Playing great music is important, but making sure people can feel the love is the most important thing at your wedding. THAT is what Eric did!

Eric Herod

Eric was great! He poured his time, talent and passion for creating unique wedding reception experiences into our wedding reception. His personalized introductions of the wedding party and his "Love Story" that he made for us are the two highlights of the reception that people are still talking about two months later. Eric was easy to work with and went out of his way to meet all of our audio needs. Not only did he run the dinner reception, but he also put together the music at our cocktail hour which was in a different part of the venue. And he ran the sound system for the outdoor ceremony. We kept him busy and had many acoustic challenges for him and he rose to the occasion and exceeded our expectations. His fees were a little higher than some others we looked at, but his professionalism and the quality of his services were top notch.

Great experience

We are so happy we had Eric Herod Entertainment working with us for our wedding! Eric is dedicated, professional and makes a stressful planning process fun! Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had at our reception, and we know it would not have been the same with any other DJ!

Eric Herod is amazing!!!

Eric Herod was everything we wanted from a DJ and more! He was so helpful in the planning process; we had several meetings before the wedding where we nailed down the timeline for the reception, music, introductions, etc. What convinced me to book Eric for our wedding though is that he offered entertainment that was unique and personal and made all of our guests feel welcome. All of our guests have said that the most memorable part of our wedding was the "Love Story" that Eric put together. Anyway, book Eric for your wedding!! You won't regret it.

You will be SO glad you chose Eric for your wedding entertainment!!! Not only was he the best DJ, but he was the best out of all our other vendors. Unfortunately, we experienced a lot of difficulty and poor customer service with some of our other big vendors so it was refreshing to have Eric care so much about our day and be sure, he was reaching out to us regularly with any information or tasks we needed to complete on a timeline. He was very organized and helpful throughout the entire wedding planning. He answered any questions or concerns we had promptly and always reassured us he had everything under control. We also really enjoyed the option to have our meetings via Skype to accommodate our busy schedules. He also uses a planning portal which makes it really easy to input your ideas & details for every possible thing you can think of. He really covers all the bases!! Eric will make your wedding night so much fun for everyone!

Richmond weddings take reviews seriously. Our vendors cannot pay to modify or remove reviews.

Our best matches are energetic couples, willing to try something new. They love their friends and family, and they appreciate having fun, sharing their personalities, and want to use tears and laughter as fuel to bring people together. They are able to let go of control over their playlist because they trust Eric Herod Entertainment so intrinsically that they are confident that the music will bring the house down.
