We loved working with Thomas for our wedding! From the first meeting, we immediately felt comfortable with him and throughout the planning stages and the wedding it felt like we were working with a good friend! We really appreciated and valued Thomas’ attention to detail - it really felt that he cared just as much as we did about everything going perfectly! Thomas took the time to get to know us, our music styles, and vision for the wedding. He “read the room” during the reception perfectly. We received so many compliments from guests about how fun the dance floor was and others saying they’ve never seen so many people dancing at a wedding.
The dancing was one of the parts we were most excited about and Thomas definitely delivered. Thank you Thomas!!! Caroline & Michael Harrington Farm Princeton MA 6/25/22
Thomas is incredible! Before getting to work with him, we were so worried about finding the right music balance for our wedding. There are just so many different generations and musical tastes to please, but Thomas absolutely nailed it! A ton of the people I've spoken with that attended our wedding specifically complimented our DJ. Thomas put in a lot of work beforehand to make sure he had an good grasp on what we liked and wanted to hear, but we also wanted to just let him run with things and I'm so glad we did! He had such a good grasp on the pulse of the wedding at all times. He kept the energy sky high, and built such a fun atmosphere for everyone in attendance. I'm so sincerely glad we went with Thomas for our wedding!

If you're looking for an unforgettable party, look no further than DJ Trex. He was incredibly attentive to detail and made the pre-wedding process so simple. He even called an audible for our walk-in song which got the energy up from the jump. (Thunderstruck in a thunderstorm is undefeated!)
He kept the party going all night, playing all the hits for every generation and every genre. As a DJ myself, it was awesome knowing the party was in great hands. Can't recommend DJ Trex enough!

Thomas was the absolute best to work with for our wedding! If you are looking for a DJ with extensive music knowledge and who can personalize your playlist, but also improv in the moment, look no further!
Leading up to our wedding, Thomas was incredibly generous with his time and was willing to meet, both over Zoom and in person over beers, to talk through music choices for all aspects of our wedding. He also provided a worksheet that was helpful for thinking this through, something we really appreciated.
We wanted a big dance party for our wedding, and that’s what we got! We heard from so many guests how much they loved our music and that credit goes to Thomas. Thank you Thomas for making our wedding such a fun and special day!
Hiring Thomas was such the best decision for our wedding! My husband and I met at a music festival, so we knew that music was going to be an important part of our day. Once we met with
Thomas, we knew he was the perfect match to bring the soundtrack of our wedding to life. He was extremely knowledgeable of music, he communicated fantastically with all of our vendors, and asked the right questions to make the music run seamlessly that day. We loved his questionnaire which let us pick the songs we needed to hear (and just as important, the ones we did NOT want to hear), and stuck to that list.
Picking music ended up being our favorite part of wedding planning! We not only walked away from our wedding thrilled with our night - we walked away with a newfound friendship in Thomas. 10/10! - Kaylee & Cam, 5.26.23 New England Botanic Garden, Boylston ma
Thomas was the best DJ we could have imagined!!! He took a lot of time and effort to really get to know us and our music tastes. We didn't always make it easy for him (our Do Not
Play List was EXTENSIVE), but he managed our preferences so well and played a mix of genres and artists that had a little something for everyone. He also included some traditional
Portuguese music which meant a lot to me and my family. Everyone at our wedding from teenagers to 70-year-olds were raving about him, and that's hard to achieve! Thank you, Thomas, for making our wedding SO much fun and so effortless for us!

Thomas did an exceptional job as the DJ for our wedding. He got to know us and our taste in music, helped us pick out our songs, and made sure that the audio worked flawlessly for our ceremony. The dance floor stayed packed all night and everyone had a blast thanks to Thomas AKA DJ TRex.

Are you trying to have the time of your life? Then, hire DJ T-REX to DJ your next event! We hired Tom, DJ T-REX, as our wedding DJ. We contacted all the preferred vendors on our venue’s list during our initial search for vendors. Jon Strader was not available for our wedding date, but he referred Tom to us, and we are so glad he did! We would not have met Tom otherwise. Surprisingly, my (now) husband and I felt that picking a DJ was one of the hardest vendors to choose from because they do not have a portfolio you can look at the way photographers, videographers, florists, and makeup artists do and unless you crash a wedding, it is difficult to hear them play. We were lucky to see Tom play at a local brewery and after meeting him in person, my husband and I knew we had to book him.
In preparation for the big day, Tom's ‘homework’ was super easy to fill out and so comprehensive that we heard the songs we requested all night long. Without listing too many songs on our homework sheet, we told Tom the styles of music and several artists we were looking for and Tom ran with it. Fast forward to our wedding night, Tom had everyone on the dance floor all night long – so much that we almost missed our last shuttle to the hotel! Not only did he do a great job with cocktail hour, formalities, and the dance party, but he also MC’d our centerpiece giveaway and photo dash (if you haven’t heard what this is, I highly recommend doing it – it’s a great quick way to get a photo of you with every guest without having to go table-to-table, providing more time for you and your new spouse to enjoy the dance floor and it’s super fun!). Tom is also great at feeling the room – playing for all age ranges and all music styles. We had a few slow songs and an anniversary dance planned, but we had such a wild crowd, that while jamming out together, Tom jumped right in with us and asked if he could keep the high energy going and nix the anniversary dance – we immediately agreed as we trusted his judgment. He also kept to our ‘do not play’ list even when we had guests request some songs on that list.
Tom went out of his way to develop a personal relationship with us leading up to the wedding, which made us more confident and comfortable with choosing him and made the night-of that much more amazing! My husband’s vendor-picking criteria was “Can I have a beer with this guy after the wedding?” and you definitely can with Tom! Tom is electric both on and off the job. We not only had a wonderful DJ for our wedding, but we have made good friends and cannot wait to watch as both of our families grow. We cannot recommend him enough!

I’ve known Thomas aka DJ T-Rex for about 5 years and have seen him DJ at different bars countless times so when he agreed to DJ our wedding I knew he was going to be good, but what I didn’t know was that he would surpass all of my expectations. All it takes is that first call with Thomas to know that you made the right decision about choosing him for your wedding DJ. He was extremely professional and made it very clear that his job was to not only to take your vision for your wedding music and put it into action, but to help in any way that he could, which he did. On our wedding day we had some last minute changes to our wedding party introductions and some timing issues we asked him to work around and with a smile on his face he turned to us and said “don’t worry I got this” and he did. I can’t begin to tell you how easy it was to work with Thomas and how receptive he was to our ideas and the music we wanted played. If you have any question about his dedication to his craft and to ensuring that your day goes perfect just know that he had never been to our wedding venue before so he got there a few hours earlier than he normally would to familiarize himself with the venue, to setup and check his equipment and to speak with our wedding coordinator and other vendors to make sure that everything was going according to schedule. So you might be thinking to yourself, ok I get it he’s really easy to work with, he’s very professional and he makes it his mission to take your vision and put it into action, but can he rock a wedding? Let me put it like this, I’ve never had more people come up to me and say we’ve never seen so many people dance at a wedding before.That’s a testament to DJ T-Rex’s ability to not only play great music but to understand the vibe of the wedding. To know what songs keep people dancing and to continue to play those types of songs. If you’re not convinced that DJ T-Rex will rock your wedding, I’ll leave you with this: at our wedding we had a hard stop at 10:30. DJ T-Rex wrapped up exactly at 10:30 as a “one more song” chant echoed throughout the dance floor. After getting permission from our venue for one more song the dance floor remained packed until the cops showed up to shut us down. DJ T-Rex rocked so hard that the cops had to shut down our wedding.
Now I’m sure you’re going to continue to read the other reviews below mine, but let me save you some time because they’re all going to say pretty much the same thing about Thomas: professional, easy to deal with and the wedding wouldn’t have rocked as much without him. Do yourself a favor, instead of continuing to read reviews and look at other wedding DJ’s; contact DJ T-Rex right now and see if he’s available on your wedding date. I can promise you that after speaking with him you’ll know that he’s the right DJ for your special day.
