What They're

Saying  

Don't just take it from us, read it from them!

"I am delighted to recommend Ben’s services to any corporate or private events. Ben not only understands how to connect with a crowd through his charisma, but also understands how to read his audience and adjust accordingly. I have hired him over seven times in a corporate setting for events I hosted with Lululemon Athletica over the course of 3 years. He always came prepared and punctual, and would work hard regardless of the hours. His taste in music is refined, his energy is infectious, and he understands multiple genres.

When people leave any of our events, they don’t remember the food we provided, or the clothing they bought -- they remember the experience that Ben created while fostering wonderful connections."

"As a wedding and event planner for 20+ years in the high-end market, I look for a DJ that can not only pack a dance floor but do it with professionalism and style. Higher Ground Entertainment does just that. They are my number one pick for the best wedding, corporate, or private event DJ in the Pacific Northwest. Ben and his team are a young, fun group of entertainers that will put in the work and bring out the best of any dance floor. Do yourself a favor and book Higher Ground for your next event!"

“We had a great time. Your crew was beyond awesome! Ben was fabulous. The kids and the adults loved him and the dancers. The kids want them for their graduation next year! My daughter’s bat mitzvah is in 2018 and we will be reserving you all for that event too. Thanks again!”

"Ben and his team virtually guarantee that your event will be a success. I've never met a harder working group in 6+ years of doing events. We work with them several times a year and I can honestly say that I love it when I know that they're going to be a (BIG) part of the event. Ben is a master Master of Ceremonies and his team provide a level of energy that everyone feeds off of. We love them so much we'd hire them for our very own event. I know from personal experience that you're in amazing hands with Higher Ground and Ben. Cheers!"

"Ben from Higher Ground Entertainment was perfect as the headline entertainer for Thermo Fisher Scientific's 2021 Global Commercial Meeting. He virtually entertained our 1,000+ attendees from around the globe prior to, and after our awards ceremony, providing us with good vibes and setting the perfect atmosphere during these strange times when everyone is remote. I'd definitely recommend him for any virtual or corporate event!"

"Unbelievable!!! Unbelievable!!! I was a photographer over the weekend at a bat mitzvah at Castaway. All night long, as I was running around taking pictures, I was blown away by the energy and exciting vibe of Higher Ground Entertainment. It made my job easier since the guests were having a blast. Made for great pictures. If you need a Portland event DJ, run to book them!"

"My wife and I got married in July 2019 at Waverley Country Club and had Higher Ground MC the whole event (dinner, speeches, etc.) as well as DJ the reception. Ben and Mason were OUTSTANDING!!

The dance floor was electric and everyone had a great time. They were able to read the room perfectly; with the beginning of the dancing including music the older generation enjoyed dancing to, but smoothly transitioned to music more geared to the younger crowd and kept the party going late into the night! The dance floor was so fun that we asked them to stay later than initially planned.

My wife and I are in the stage of our lives where our whole summer has been filled with weddings. Ours was the first of our friend group this year and we continue to hear from our friends how great the DJ was.
Big thanks to Ben & Mason for all their hard work!"

"Higher Ground had an easy-going, hassle-free approach to planning. From conceptualization to implementation, they helped us put together a game plan for our daughter's party. When the big day finally arrived, they even showed up with the ice!"
