As you will see by the rest of my Website, I really make an effort to give you all the information you need to make a decision on Hiring Me or Not.
Rick was more expensive than some of the DJs that I was contacted by. But he was also extremely helpful, easy to deal with, reliable and an all round nice guy. He has a very professional set up and went out of his way to be helpful. I would have no hesitation in hiring him again.
Richard was our DJ for our wedding last week. We found him via google, and arranged to meet him to discuss what we wanted. From the end of that meeting we were both certain that we wanted Richard to be a major part of our big day. He was friendly and we had a fantastic discussion with him. We both felt like we'd just been talking to a friend. Along the way, Richard kept in touch, offering ideas and fitting in things we felt important. rnOn the night, Richard was there early to set up, and was flexible when we had to change some timings. Everyone was full of praise for his professional yet fun attitude. They loved the games that we played and the wide range of music meant that there was something for everyone. The confetti cannons were a great touch during our first dance (even if we did spend days finding it everywhere!) the living guestbook was a fantastic idea, and yet another memory of our day! I wouldn't hesitate to hire Richard again for any event, or to recommend him to others. Thank you again Richard, for making our special day even more memorable.
What did stand out for me included the length of the reception (3pm-1am), the wearing of pretty facinators, and the music selection. Let’s just say I have never been to a wedding that played 80s new wave for a few hours and then some Motown, The Stones, and so much more. That had to have been my favorite part! We rocked hard into the night
We found Richard from a Google search and immediately we felt we had found someone who was concerned only with making sure we had a brilliant wedding rather than amusing himself with his own song preferences! Our email exchanges were warm and friendly, he made sure he knew our specific requirements before the wedding and he certainly didn’t disappoint on the night! We would recommend Richard for any function, especially if you want a full dance floor all night
Thank you for making our son's christening a perfect day, you we're organised and professional and had lot's of fun with the children, they loved you!! You made our day very enjoyable and less stressful for us. Would highly recommend you and would book you again for future events. Friend's and family members also commented how good you we're. Thank you once again. Thomas, Gemma & Ewan

Hi Rick, Just wanted to say a big thank you for your great DJing (and great music taste lol!) last weekend, we all had a great time. Everyone has been commenting how good they thought you were. Glad you are available for our renewal of vows, once we have the venue sorted we will give you a call.
Hi Richard - just wanted to say a BIG thank you for Saturday! We had an absolutely great time, as did all of our friends. Thank you for driving through all that snow and making it to us in good time. You were the exact DJ I had hoped for, many of our friends didn't sit down all night 🙂 Thanks for plugging the cheese too 😉 Mr & Mrs Jones x
Rick was brilliant! Just what we wanted for our big day, lots of great rock songs, really different to the usual poppy/smoochy numbers...though he did sneak some Abba in there 🙂 Highly recommended, my bridesmaid already has your details!
Rick did a tremendous job in ensuring the dance floor was filled all night, everyone had a great time and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for your wedding
If anyone is organising a party or celebration event we would strongly recommend you consider using the services of DJ Richard Porter. On Friday 31st May 2013 he provided the music and entertainment for our wedding. We had a perfect day and Richard played a central role to making our special day so memorable. Guests young and old were kept entertained and engaged throughout the afternoon and the evening. From adult dancing, party dances, games and children’s entertainment Richard excelled and everyone commented on how wonderful he was, providing such an extensive, flexible and high quality contribution during the day, the meal and the evening reception. It was a pleasure to meet Richard before the event, his planning was sensitive to our requests. Richard was professional at all times and we had no concerns about people enjoying themselves at the wedding. That confidence in Richard was justified and left us to celebrate the day and enjoy the entertainment with our family and friends. Richard made a huge contribution to our day, became part of the celebration, ensuring that everyone had a fantastic day. Our day was indeed perfect and Richard was superb throughout. We recommend DJ Richard Porter without reservation.Tim and Helen Hatcliffe
I hired Rick to DJ for my sons christening and he did not let us down. I found him on the internet and after reading the reviews decided to book. The christening was at a cricket club so I was dreading having to run around myself rounding up the kids. I didn't need to bother because Rick did it all and all the kids (and big one's) thoroughly enjoyed themselves. there was plenty games to be played and prizes given I think the grown up's enjoyed the dancing more. As you can imagine at the end the kids were a little hyped up but again this wasn't a problem as Rick sat down and coloured with them all. The best thing for me was how Rick involved all the children the best he could I have a disabled cousin who is wheelchair bound and he joined in with most games and Rick worked with his carer which was great. I would definitely recommend him and will be booking again should I need a DJ.
We had Richard over to entertain our son and his 25 friends for his 8th birthday party in our local village hall on the Wirral on Sunday 9 June 2013. Richard did a fantastic job by providing the right type of games and music for the age group (from 8-10). We also sent him a list of songs my son likes before the event and he was happy to play them at the party. Overall Richard was a great entertainer and very friendly.
Richard was a fantastic DJ at my daughters 5th birthday party. He fully engaged 20plus young children (and their parents) in 2 hours of fun and non stop games; he has a real natural report with kids, they all had a brilliant time and he made my little girls birthday really special. Would definitely recommend highly.
Richard, thank you so much! You were fantastic and went above and beyond the call of duty, from putting on entertainment for the kids to customising the evening to our tastes, you truly were fantastic and made our wedding day all the more special! I have never seen a dj that has been cheered and asked to stay on at the end before so that says it all really x x

We held a join 50th birthday party at the Maritime Museum in Liverpool in October 2013 and booked DJ Richard Porter to introduce the iconic band the MERSEYBEATS and keep the party going following their session. We were delighted with Richard\'s professionalism and sense of occasion and he did a fabulous job of helping to make the evening go with a real swing. We themed the tables after Liverpool bands and Richard cleverly introduced suitable music from these themes. If we make it to Gusting 60 we will certainly be using him again. Many thanks Richard. John Beese
We hired Rick to DJ at our wedding after he was recommended to us, and we will definitely pass that recommendation on to others! The music got everyone up dancing and nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely brilliant, thank you for making our evening fantastic!
Just a quick line to say thank you so very much for an excellent night on Saturday at Gary's surprise party. Myself and the girls thought the evening was fabulous and so did Gary too!! So many people have congratulated us on a wonderful evening which is down to you and my buffet lady! She makes a mean curry ha.. Thanks again and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone and if we have another party (already said never again! ha) then I will be sure to let you know. Thanks again Rick for a fabulous job well done
From the moment we contacted Richard we felt at ease. Many of our initial worries regarding hiring a dj and how the wedding reception would run were immediately put to rest after a brief telephone conversation. We met Richard twice before our wedding to discuss exactly what we wanted and how we wanted the reception / evening do to run. On the day itself Richard was exceptional and drew praise from our guests.. the way he looked after all the children with entertainment before the adult part of the evening and of course the music and evening entertainment itself. Thanks Richard and a very strong recommendation from us both... Andy & Lisa Mckenzie
Thank you for a great 21st party disco. The music suited all tastes and got everyone up dancing.
Hi Rick. Just wanted to say a big thank you for doing such a fantastic job, DJ-ing at our son Mike's 18th birthday party. The music that you played all night was spot on, & you obviously went out of your way to make sure that you had the sort of music that Mike had asked for. We all had a wonderful time & you helped make his night really special. Next time we have a "do", I will definitely be in touch, & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again.
Rick, We just want to say a massive thank you (again!) for making our 2nd son's christening a day to remember not just for us but everyone who was there to help us celebrate our special day. So many people commented on your ability to keep all of the children entertained all of the time. Even the most reluctant 'party goer' you managed to win round with your natural sense of fun and understanding of what children like. Total professional-nothing too much trouble. Would recommend to anyone (if we have anymore children Rick we will book you for christening number 3!!) Julie and Lee Allen
Very easy to arrange things, DJ very adaptable, helpful, nice, courteous, efficient, he worked to my choice of tracks but could and would have chosen appropriate stuff if I had asked him to choose for me. I got exactly what I wanted, no hitches or glitches.
Thank you so much Rick!!! You made our wedding such a fantastic night. All the right tunes and had everyone on their feet! We will definitely be recommending you and will certainly use you again in the future! Thanks so much again.
Thank you for the great djing on my 30th the other day, you were brilliant and I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a DJ 🙂 x
Thanks so much Richard! When our DJ became unavailable at the last minute it was a blessing in disguise. The music you played was exactly what the audience wanted, you created a stress-free day and basically made everything really easy and fun for us. Our party would not have been the same without you.
Rick did the DJ'ing for our wedding last weekend and was brilliant. Great selection of music kept the dancefloor full all night. Rick was very professional liaising with our caterer and bar to keep the evening well organised, helping us to relax and enjoy the evening even more. We'd recommend him anyday!!! Many thanks.
Thanks Rick. After all the preparation that went into arranging the surprise 40th Birthday party for my wife, it was nice to know that we had you to rely on to take care of the entertainment. Great with the kids and adults alike. Everybody commented on how nice it was to watch the kids enjoying themselves whilst the adults got chance to talk! Thanks again Rick.
Hi Richard Just wanted to pass on our thanks for the service provided at Luke\'s Christening. Everyone enjoyed the day and the games and prizes made a great day for all. Highly recommended.
Helena loved it, she says the limbo was the best bit! 30 children and Rick kept them entertained for the full 2 hours 🙂 many thanks Rick
It has taken me a while to get around to writing this but I wanted to say what an excellent job Richard did DJing for our wedding. From the moment we enquired he was full of ideas and tips that we hadn't even considered and he made planning the music for the wedding much easier. We were very specific about what we wanted and Richard took our playlist and knew what songs would work and when and which wouldn't. His suggestion for advice from our guests read out during the buffet was inspired and hilarious! (if not a little risqué for some of the older relatives). My bridesmaids were on the dance floor the entire night and way past I had gone to bed which is testament to how good Richard was. I have and will recommend Richard Porter to friends and family.
Just like to say what an amazing job Richard done on Sunday for my sons christening! Everyone had a ball and he was great with the kids and loads of prizes!, keeping everyone entertained. Also very helpful and professional! If your looking for your DJ & entertainer this is your guy! All our family and friends were made up with Richard too!
