Noteworthy DJs :: Professional DJ, MC, & Lighting
Noteworthy DJs - based in Portland, OR - started in 2012 as part of the Noteworthy Productions suite of services. Joe Ebner - an Oregon-based musician and band leader - founded Noteworthy DJs in response to the demand for professional, responsive, and high-quality DJ's and MC's. The Noteworthy DJs suite of packages offer flexible and affordable pricing across Oregon and Washington. Noteworthy DJs boasts many years of experience and its staff has performed at all manner of events such as weddings, corporate events, private parties, and birthday parties.
Noteworthy DJs prides itself on professionalism, communication, value, and attention to detail. We travel with portable, professional, and commercial sound and lighting systems of the highest quality. Our equipment provides top-quality sound at a comfortable listening level both indoors and outdoors.
The Noteworthy DJs music library - currently more than 95,000 songs - is constantly expanding and covers virtually every genre from jazz and classical to top 40 and alternative rock. Each of Noteworthy DJs' booths is a mobile hotspot allowing us to add up to five songs (from Amazon.com's mp3 store) requested at the event at no charge to you.
Noteworthy DJs is equally capable of providing background music or getting the party going and people dancing all night long.
Noteworthy DJs' mission is to relentlessly provide the highest level of professional, engaging, and memorable entertainment drawing upon our experience, knowledge, and commitment to our customers. We do this by combining class, flexibility, responsiveness, a large music library, and state-of-the-art technology. Noteworthy DJs is committed to providing you the best service and best value for your time and money.
We understand quality matters and how important each event is. Our event planners will work closely and proactively with you to make your event successful, memorable, and easy, accommodating your needs and tastes.
Oregon and Washington have no shortage of DJs and MCs. Joe Ebner, Noteworthy DJs founder and faithful leader, decided long ago to build his business by surrounding himself with the best in the business.
These are DJs who are very, very good at what they do, really love their work and take great pride in doing it right the first time. That's a good start, but it'snot enough. Joe had to ensure that whoever carried the Noteworthy DJ name would be honest, mature, thoughtful, always courteous and totally dependable.

Q. How Much Do You Charge?
A. We have a wide range of prices which match the entertainment package we create for your event. It is best to meet with us to determine which package of services would be best for your needs. Our quotes are free and carry no obligation.
Q. How Much Should I Budget For My DJ?
A. You will hear from many vendors that you shouldn't skimp on their services, but it couldn't be more true in the case of DJ entertainment, considering that your DJ entertainment will bear most of the responsibility (over 80%, in most cases) of making your event a success. It's quite clear that choosing a PROFESSIONAL DJ is the wisest choice. Your wedding already looks like a million bucks and has many moving parts. You won't want to cut corners on the most important element - the element that will make your reception truly unforgettable and fun. Professional rates for DJ Entertainment typically range from $700 to $4,000. The average professional rate is around $1,200. You may be able to find less-experienced or part-time DJ's who charge less, but it is unwise to take any chances on once-in-a-lifetime celebrations. Skill, experience, and top-notch equipment make all the difference in the world.
Q. Will You Hold My Date?
A. In the DJ industry, our dates are our "inventory" and therefore cannot be held without a contract and retainer. Even if you need time to decide which package suits you, simply call to request a retainer contract. A small retainer of as low as $100 will hold your date. It is most important that you secure your date with us first, then we can work together to design a package right for you. We accept Visa, MasterCard Discover, American Express, and Paypal for your retainer payment.
Q. Will you be on time for my reception?
A. Yes. In fact, we will be early. We make all the arrangements for our arrival with your venue and will arrive approximately one-and-a-half or two hours early to set up (more if lighting setup is needed). Our equipment and microphones are then tested and tunes are fully equalized to the room so your first guest hears perfection.
Q. What kind of equipment do you use?
A. As a full-time professional DJ company, we only use the most reliable, professional and state-of-the-art equipment.

Also keep in mind, there is only time to hear around 15-20 songs per party hour. As a result, you can expect to hear a total of 60 - 80 songs for a four hour event.
