I wanted to reach out
and see if you may be available to DJ the XXXXXXX middle school dance on Friday, December 11th. We had a DJ back out and I
think we are coming to appreciate the level of service that you provided more. I apologize for not appreciating it in the
past. I understand that this is a one off and we may not be able to get the same rate. However, I wanted to check with you
before we reached out to anyone else. Please let me know if you are available. Thanks!
Pool Party (2005) Bob Hartman of HardRock's DJ Service has been the sole DJ for Belair Bath and Tennis (BBT)
in Bowie for 2 years. During the time he has provided his services for us, we have found his work to be both professional
and courteous. Whether it be an adult function, children's party, or family event, Bob has always chosen quality music and
provided great entertainment. He certainly lives up to his slogan: "We'll make it a blast!!!!" Bob consistently
requests feedback and works with organizers to implement any and all suggestions. I would recommend the choice of HardRock's
DJ Service for any function requiring a DJ. We, at BBT, hope to continue our working relationship with Bob Hartman for many
years to come! Archbishop Neale School hosted its 1st Annual Car Show on Saturday, October 8th, 2011.
After a rescheduled rain date, the weather cooperated producing a gorgeous day! All who came thoroughly enjoyed themselves,
including the kids. Father Kosty of St. Catherine's Parish blessed all of the cars in the show. Trophies were awarded to top
20 cars as voted on by all participants. Each of the vehicles was unique and in impeccable condition. One Car was awarded
the Archbishop Neale School Best of Show Award. A special "THANK YOU" goes to all of the volunteers, HardRocks DJ
Service, and all of the sponsors who made the day a success. We look forward to next year's car show, scheduled for May 19,
2012.Bob Hartman of HardRocks DJ Service and his associate did a wonderful
job. I would recommend the choice of HardRocks DJ Service for any function requiring a DJ. We here at Archbishop Neale School,
Development Office hope to continue our working relationship with Bob and his associate for many years to come.
Belair Bath and Tennis
Car Show (2017)We have attended the Indian Head Car Show each September for the last several years and that is how we first observed
Bob Hartman as a DJ. While he had big shoes to fill as our favorite DJ, XXXXXXX XXXXXXX, had retired! So, of the number of
DJ’s that were met at different shows, Bob Hartman stood out as someone we would like to contact and discuss his future
as a DJ for our show.
This is a testimonial to Bob Hartman of HardRock’s DJ
Service after he DJ’d our 7th Annual Baden Volunteer Fire & EMS Department's Car, Rat Rod, Truck & Bike Show
"Under The Lights" on June 9, 2017:
Mr. Hartman, Bob, fulfilled all the characteristics
that were desired and expected of an outstanding DJ! His voice is and was clear and distinct as he spoke using his up-to-date
sound system. He continually followed the program throughout the evening as requested by naming the numerous sponsors that
supported this Fire & EMS Department’s show as a fundraiser.
Bob took the time when necessary to interrupt the music to announce the door prize ticket winners and direct them
to our registration tent as well as when he saw additional children on the show grounds, he took the initiative to direct
them to the registration tent to pick up their ‘Kids Choice’ card and their ‘Kid’s Judge’s"
badge. He made everyone important at our event!
As Bob was contracted to
do this Fire & EMS show, he asked the preference of music that should be played during the event and 50’s as well
as old County Music was chosen. He did not hesitate with those choices and his selections were perfect as the background for
those 161 show cars and additional bikes that cruised in as they glimmered later in the evening ‘under the lights’
waiting for the judges’ decisions!
Baden Volunteer Fire & EMS Department
I just wanted to thank HardRock's DJ Service for your great support at our 2012 car show,
it was great working with you. Your selection of Oldies Rock/Contemporary Christian Rock was a perfect fit for our event.
Your professionalism and strong desire to meet your customer's needs was evident and welcomed. On behalf of Indian Head
Baptist Church and the Town of Indian Head, thank you.

Archbishop Neale School
Fundraiser Event Car Show / Barbeque (2010)
I just wanted to thank you for making our event a success. I really appreciate
the discount you extended for your services but more importantly your professionalism. Being a non-profit organization and
entertaining our wounded Troops from Walter Reed is always a special day and you helped make it complete.
One day away from the hospital for these soldiers is like one day of sunshine. I look forward to hiring you next year
for our Fundraiser Event and Car Show / Barbeque.
Thank you again,
Operation Second Chance
SOS Supporting our Soldiers
We would like to thank you again
for entertaining at our recent charity event. A good time was had by all! You played a great mix of tunes, enjoyed by all
the different age groups represented. The kids especially enjoyed the fun activities, and we also thank your wife for getting
things going! If we plan another event, you will be the first person we call! Thanks again!
So sorry it has taken a bit of time to get this letter
out but since our party I have been nothing but busy!
How do you thank someone who is the prime reason our community
dock party was such a success! People are still talking about it!
When you are creating a themed party, in an outdoor
open area for a giant group of people, it is not an easy task. You, Bob, were so refreshing to work with. You listened, understood
what we needed, very clear on what your needs were and you became the Star of our party!
So many people came up
to me to let me know how great the party was. My 2 favorite comments were, "Best Party Ever", and "We were
dancing all night!".
Thanks so much for being the best DJ, dressing the part, and the CD's.
sorry you had to use your headlights to breakdown your equipment. Next year I am planing to have the party first weekend in
June, stays light longer! Let you know the theme next year.

Girls Dance Party (2013)
Bob,Wow!!!! I have had 2 incredible dance parties this past year. The
first was on Saturday May 4th, what a blast... we had so much fun!!!! Everyone loved it. When
I first mentioned I wanted to have one I had some people look at me funny. Well they just have no clue.
It was fantastic!!! The weather was perfect and the music put us in the mood for dancing the night
away. I won't elaborate on the the window dancing and no one has video to prove it!!!! My 2nd party was on Friday Oct. 18th needless
to say I was concerned about the weather.... All dancing is outside on deck. That nights
forecast was the same as May 4th! The stars aligned, there was a lunar eclipse, a science teacher and the
partying started. Bob and I didn't think we could top my last party, but it happened!!!! More
window dancing and fireball!!!!
I recommend Bob services and
will hire him again. I also recommend a Girls Dance Party... It is a blast and you will have so much fun.
One girl suggested our husbands come next time???NO, are you kidding me????? I have these because my husband is out of town!!! It's
a GIRLS DANCE PARTY!!! Thanks Bob.
Wedding (2004)On May 1, 2004, my first
(of three) daughters, was married. After many months and hoping that everything would be perfect, there was one thing I never
doubted. I was completely confident that our DJ, Bob Hartman was ready for the task.
Rachel's wedding had a Celtic theme with a bagpiper at the church. We wanted to continue this atmosphere at the reception,
during the meal. After an enthusiastic introduction of the wedding party, Bob kept our mood with the wonderful Celtic music
he chose. Our guests loved it! After dinner he went right into the bride and groom's special choices for dancing.
Now, you may think this is what any DJ would do... what he's getting paid to for. But Bob
is more than a DJ, he's a planner too. He has a schedule and he keeps to it while everyone has a good time, especially the
bride's mother. There are no dull moments when guests are wondering what's going on. I received many, many compliments on
Bob's talent at keeping the party going. Bob is professional, charming and so easy to work with in those hectic weeks before
the big day. Bob Hartman of HardRock's DJ Service is sure to make any event special.
Can't thank you enough for the super job you did at Shannon's wedding.
Everyone seemed to be having a "blast"! You gave the kids what they asked for and made the evening go smoothly for
all. I'm so glad you and Rose could be there for the festivities and your expertise and enthusiasm was contagious.
Hi Bob and Rose --
Thanks so much for making are special day great!! I think everyone young and old thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You
guys are super and I would definitely recommend you to anyone.
Sue and Marc Lambert
Mr. Hartman (HardRock's DJ Service),
like to extend our sincere gratitude to you and your wife for all the hard work you put in to making our wedding reception
such a success. You kept everyone on the dance floor and I'm certain that every person who was in attendance had a wonderful
time. We truly appreciate the way you informed us of the upcoming special "moments" but gave us the freedom to alter
that slightly throughout the evening. We have received many compliments, both from friends and family, on how smoothly the
evening went and that is definitely a tribute to your work. Thanks so much!
Russell and Jessica Reynolds
Dear Bob & Rose,
I never doubted that
you would do a great job at our wedding! Not only were you extremely easy to work with, but very well organized and thorough.
Rose was wonderful as well, with all the extra help she provided as well as just making sure everything ran smoothly. You
guys make a great team. I have had a lot of compliments about you and have nothing but wonderful things to say myself. You
guys were truly awesome and kept the reception going all night long. I can't tell you enough how thankful I am that we found
you to DJ our wedding. Oh and not to forget you did a beautiful job at the ceremony as well ;)
Thank you again,
Christina & Jim Petite
you so much for the excellent service that you and Rose provided to Andy and me at our wedding. Everyone had a blast. I will
recommend you to anyone in search of a great DJ!!! Thank you again.
Andy and Nichol Duszynski
Our daughter Rachel was married on a beautiful
Saturday in August 2006. We were thrilled to have our terrific friend Bob Hartman as our DJ and his wonderful wife Rose as
the “un-official” wedding coordinator. We only wish Bob and Rose had been at the wedding ceremony to coordinate
it as well as they did the reception.
Bob is truly a professional. He met with us six
months before the wedding to discuss the reception. Because he has been a DJ at so many weddings he was able to take us through
a typical reception. He was able to point out the pitfalls and mistakes that can be made. He helped us pick the music that
would span the generation gaps without alienating anyone. He was very diplomatic and was able to get my daughter and I to
agree about the kind of music to be played. Unlike others involved with the wedding Bob kept in touch with us during the many
months of planning. He called both my daughter and I to reassure us.
When the big day
finally happened Bob and Rose were there for us. From the time our guests arrived at the reception until the wedding party
got there, Bob kept the guests entertained. He kept the music moving. From the time we walked in until the reception was over
Bob was in control. Rose was our unofficial wedding coordinator. She lined up the large wedding party according to the long
list of names Bob was to announce. She prompted me before all of the important reception milestones occurred, and she did
everything with a smile. Bob was also good enough to play sentimental favorites that had our friends and family dancing. He
played a wide variety of music that pleased everyone and had the three year olds to the Grandmothers dancing. We couldn’t
have asked for more. Hardrock's DJ Service was the best, put simply Bob made our reception a Total Blast!
Mother of the Bride
We want to thank you for providing DJ Services for our wedding reception, Monday, December 31, 2007. The music you
provided was just what we requested, a mixture of Classic Rock and Oldies, mixed with songs familiar with the younger group
in attendance. Your choices of music seemed to get all ages on the floor from grandparents to grandchildren. The music volume
was perfect, providing good background music allowing our guests to freely visit with each other, yet inviting, for those
who wanted to dance. Also, we appreciate your willingness to take requests from those in attendance. All this was provided
with less than three weeks notice. Thanks for helping create a comfortable relaxing atmosphere on our special day which everyone
Ed and Elaine Reilly
Thank you very much for helping to make our wedding reception wonderful. Everyone had a great time and the music
was awesome! We'll gladly recommend you to friends and family!
Casey & Justin Stockton
Dear Bob and Rose,
We wanted to thank you for doing such a great
job for our wedding, on October 11, 2008. The music you played was great and accommodated everyoneʼs taste. You were
able to play all of the requests and actually got everyone on the dance floor (which is a challenge with our families). Everyone
had a great time. We will definitely recommend you to all of our friends.
Christa & Dave
Thank you so much for
the awesome job that you did at our wedding. You seemed to have something for everyone and really kept a great tempo for the
evening. It was a great feeling seeing all of our guests engaged, and on the dance floor. Everyone had a wonderful time! I'd
also like to thank you for your professionalism throughout the entire process. Everything from your initial meeting with us,
to the last dance was a real treat. Thanks again and we will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.
Luke & Gayle Doyle
O'Malley/Malone Wedding (09-12-09)
I can not thank you enough for being the DJ at our wedding. You kept the party
going, played great music, and got everyone dancing. Everyone at our wedding said you were "Wonderful!" and we will
recommend you to everyone we know! Thank you again for making our special day a little more special!
you again for being the DJ at our wedding! We were impressed at how organized and thorough the entire process was. You and
Rose were easy to work with. You had ideas that we had not thought of to add that special touch. We are thankful for these
memories of our families and friends coming together at one time dancing and having a spectacular time. We also want to thank
Rose for sticking it out in the heat at the wedding ceremony! We will definitely recommend you to others.
Tommy & Christy Dean
Sam and I wanted to thank you and your wife, Rose, for helping to make our
wedding day so special. You couldn’t have made the process easier for us, especially since we were doing the planning
from the other side of the country! From our initial planning meeting, to our follow-up e-mails and telephone calls,
you were always thorough, helpful in your recommendations and professional. We wanted our wedding to feel personal
and intimate, and to find vendors that we felt comfortable with and enjoyed working with, and we certainly felt that way with
you and Rose from our very first meeting! On the day of our wedding, we really appreciated the way Rose gently guided
us through the reception, letting us know as each key moment was coming up. It made the entire evening feel effortless
and really allowed us to enjoy ourselves and spend time with our guests. We received many compliments from our guests
about the great music selection you played during the cocktail hour and dinner, and we know they had a good time dancing after
dinner!! Our wedding day was truly the happiest day of our life, and we cannot thank you enough for being a part of
Melissa and Sam Liggett
We cannot thank you enough for the wonderful job you did last night at
our daughters wedding. Not only was the selection of music you played perfect, but so many of our guest remarked that
they had never enjoyed a DJ and the music as much as they did last night. Our guests were able to enjoy dinner time conversation
while appropriate music played and then later, when the dancing began, there was music for all tastes and ages.
Your service is top notch and both of you were a pleasure to work
with. We recommend you highly.
Parents of the Bride
Debbie and Harry
wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team at Hardrock's DJ Services for providing the entertainment at my wedding
on November 17, 2012. My husband and I were so happy with all that you did to entertain our family and friends and ensure
that the event ran smoothly. I had so many compliments that night....just thought you should know that we really appreciated
all that you did. Dave and I are thrilled to find out that you will also be the entertainment at our fire station during our
2013 Installation of new officers! We can't wait to see you again ;)
Nicole & Dave
John and I would like to thank you so much for DJ'ing our wedding! You, Rose and your assistant
were so professional and fun! We really appreciated you letting us know exactly when the next dance or event was going to
happen. And the glow sticks you gave the kids was so sweet! It was such a nice touch. Thank you again for being part of our
Ashley and John
just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful job you did playing at our parents 50th Anniversary party at the
Crofton Country Club. I knew I was in good hands from the beginning. It is very apparent that you take your work seriously,
and strive to provide the very best service to your clients. Many of our guests commented on how good the music and the flow
of it was. If we ever have another celebration we will certainly be calling you.
Hardrock DJ’s owner, Bob, was so easy to work with, even from afar as we planned our wedding
from the other side of the country. He was always professional, and courteous of our time in every conversation, making sure
we were getting exactly what we wanted. Once the wedding day rolled around, everything was ready to go before guests arrived,
and the music kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Our guests commented on how much fun they had and what a great musical
selection there was – thank you so much for helping make the night so memorable!
We had an
amazing experience with HardRock’s DJ Service. Bob Hartman was great to work with! With all the craziness a wedding
can bring, Bob helped to calm my husband and I’s nerves. Bob is very organized. He not only provided us with fantastic
music but also a great timeline for reception. I had no worries the day of my wedding! That is a big deal for a bride to say!
Bob was very easy to get a hold of when we had any questions or comments to share. Bob checked in with us several times before
the wedding to make sure the timeline for the day was perfect- and it was! He and his helper kept the reception moving and
everyone had a great time! I wish we could do it all again! My husband and I highly recommend HardRock’s DJ Service!
- Ashley and Wes
We just got married this Sept. 2014
and we are so glad we got to work with HardRock’s DJ! Bob was very professional throughout the whole process, from the
first conversation to the clean up after the wedding. We met with Bob a few times before the wedding to go over song choices,
he was much more prepared than we were! Bob was able to help us find the perfect song for every moment of the wedding!
When the big day finally came around, it felt as though we didn’t have to lift a finger! It was such a relief to know
Bob had everything under control and there was nothing I needed to worry about! People were dancing and singing along all
night! We couldn’t have choose a better DJ!!
again HardRock’s DJ!
Rachel and Brian
Wedding (2015)Hi Bob,
Dave and I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding.
Your music selections for our party were great and everyone loved the fact that you didn't have the music playing too loudly.
I want to also compliment your assistant. Very professional given his young age. You will definitely be our choice for a DJ
for any future
events we have.
Carol and Dave Wilson
Our wedding was scheduled for March
2015 at Chesapeake Beach Resort & Spa and we needed a local awesome DJ for our reception. Bob, (DJ HardRock) came recommended
by a close college friend. From the first meeting we had months before the wedding, Bob came off as personable and very organized.
It was apparent from the beginning that he had years of experience of weddings under his belt and he had timeline down to
a science. He also reminded us that this was our wedding and he let us be creative and offered suggestions when we needed
help. Sure enough, the day ran seamlessly as he and his staff worked with the venue behind the scenes and kept us on track.
Our guests loved the music choices and talked about it for months after the wedding reception.
Katie and Andy
Good Afternoon Bob,
Todd and I both wanted
to thank you so much for your excellent DJ services at Stephanie and Josh's wedding. We couldn't have been any more pleased,
and we received numerous compliment from the guests.
We would not hesitate to use your services again in the future,
or to recommend you to anyone who might need a wonderful DJ!
Thank you again,
Post Wedding Celebration (2015)
In September 2015 I hired Bob Hartman as our DJ for a post wedding celebration. He turned our party
into an "event!"' Bob made it a point to check in with me several times to make sure my needs were being met. Our
guests also enjoyed how easy he was to work with. Bob answered every request. If you are thinking about hiring a DJ for your
event, I highly recommend Bob Hartman. I also thought his prices were extremely reasonable.
50th Wedding Anniversary (2017)
Hi Bob --
wanted to send you and HardRock's DJ Service a quick note of thanks for a wonderful party to celebrate our 50th Wedding Anniversary.
Everyone told me they enjoyed the party and the dancing to "our songs" from many years ago. It was a pleasure
working with you to plan this special event (you could not have been any more accommodating) and I definitely will refer your
services to my friends.
Thanks again --
50th Wedding Anniversary (2005)
Thanks for a fantastic evening of music, fun & dancing. Your hard work in researching old music from the 50's paid off.
Everyone had a wonderful time...old, middle aged and even the very young. You did a great job, including all and keeping the
party hopping! Our parents are still talking about the great time they had at their 50th. We'll plan something for their 60th,
after we rest a little. Mom's feet need a rest, she danced every dance I do believe. I can't end without thanking your wife
for coming and keeping everyone in the know of today's dances, please thank her for us. Thanks again for a wonderful event,
all thanks to a great DJ the heart of the party! Thanks for helping to make two special people in our lives very happy.

50th Wedding Anniversary (2005)
50th Wedding Anniversary (2006)
Dear Mr. Hartman,
I want to personally thank you for the job you did at my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary party. Everyone
had a great time and loved the music. Your selection of music appealed to all in attendance from age 2 to 82!!! You kept the
party going smoothly even when we threw you a few unexpected curves.
All in all, it was
a pleasure to work with you and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a DJ.
50th Wedding Anniversary (2012)
My wife and I were so very pleased with your DJ service
at our 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. Your song selection had the variety that perfectly fit the wide range of ages
in attendance. In addition, you very appropriately judged the mood at all times and made choices of what to play at
the exact right time to maximize the fun. Everyone, toddlers to seniors, were up and dancing for the entire evening.
All of our guests had a wonderful time. Even the venue wait staff commented about the fun level. The event
was even more successful than we had hoped for.
Bill & Barb Pflugrad
to thank you for helping to make the 16th Birthday Party we had for our daughter and her friend such a great success! As you
know, I was slightly apprehensive about the music you might play. But alas, you were correct in assuring me that you would
play music appropriate for a sixteen-year-old audience. The party was a tremendous success (despite the weather!) - you were
able to accommodate all the teen's requests - even for "Swing Dance" music!
16th Birthday Party (2004)
Thanks again - and please
feel free to contact me should you need a reference.
Sweet 16 Birthday
I just wanted to thank you for making Casey's Sweet 16
party such a success. Although there were alot of teenagers there, it didn't seem like it because all of them were on the
dance floor! The lights, fog and music made it seem as if they were in a dance club -- right in our own backyard. The pictures
turned out great too! All of the kids had such a good time ~~ which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you for being so easy
to work with, for all of your suggestions and advice, and for the great music! We'll definately be seeing you soon!
Sweet 16 Birthday Party (2007)
Thanks for DJ'ing at Alexa's 16th birthday party at our home. You were very easy to work with and talk to and you
did a super job the night of the party. All of the teens had a really good time and probably could have danced for another
two hours! Thanks also for playing my song! I highly recommend your services to anyone who is having an event where the music
is an important factor. We hope to see you for our next party (in a few years!).
Sweet 16 Birthday Party (2010)
Valerie Lawson here. Sorry it has taken so long for me to get this to you. I would like to thank you for a wonderful
experience. Kaitlyn’s Sweet 16 was a HUGE success ! Your DJ services played a huge role in this. All
of the kids enjoyed the music and the interaction that you had with them. I will definitely recommend your services
to friends and family. We are looking forward to using you again in the future. Your prices were reasonable and
the quality was top notch !
Thank you so much,
Sweet 16 Birthday Party
Please forgive me for taking so long to send this. Thank
you so much for being DJ at my daughter’s Sweet Sixteen. Everyone had so much fun! It was a small gathering and the
kids could have had a not so fun time, but it was great! All of the kids told us that it was great and they loved the music.
My husband and I appreciated that you played some music for my husband and I and our friends. We even got to waltz and it
was really neat watching our daughter teach her friends how to waltz! You were prompt and organized and made the breakdown
of the party so much easier. I will remember your website and recommend you to others!
18th Birthday Party (2008)
Thank you so much for helping us make Ashley and Joel's 18th Birthday a success!
It has been such a pleasure getting to know you and your DJ business over the past 6 years. You have always been such a reliable,
professional business with just the right amount of personal touch! We appreciate that you took the time to make sure the
music would make the 18 year olds happy while keeping the content appropriate. We look forward to seeing you again. Ashley's
graduation and Dillon's 18th birthday are just around the corner.
Again, thanks so much for everything!

Birthday / Halloween Party (2005)
Hartman was recommended to me through St. John Vianney Church in Prince Frederick, Maryland. I was considering hiring a DJ
for my daughter's Birthday Party which had a Halloween theme. I was looking for a DJ to play popular music without explicit
lyrics. Bob fit the bill!
My children attend a local parochial school and are not afforded the opportunity to attend
school dances. They love music and were thrilled to have the opportunity to have a DJ at the party. They had a wonderful time
and enjoyed the music tremendously. They danced and participated in the games that Bob organized and especially enjoyed the
prizes he provided. Parents at the party also took part in dancing and watched on as their children had a wonderful time.
I can't say enough about Mr. Hartman....he worked well with me and understood my concern regarding lyrics. He kept
everyone happy with the music selections he provided. I would use him again in a minute and hope to do so soon. The kids are
already asking me when I'm hosting the next party! Thanks for a job well done!

Cookout for Family and Friends (2013)
Mike and I
can't thank you and Rose enough for the wonderful time everyone had at our cookout this past Saturday. We have had many cookouts
at our home over the past 34 years we've been married. This one was truly the best. The interaction you and your wife have
with the guests is unique. We continue to get comments from those that attended about how much they enjoyed the music and
the service you provided. You and Rose are the best. We're looking forward to using your services for many years to come.
I'm already getting emails from those that attended that they would like to come with us to Trader's to see you again soon.
Mike and Brenda Smith
I want to thank
you for the great DJ'ing job you did at our house party. It certainly rocked our block! The invitees couldn't stop talking
about it for months afterwards and they want to know when our next party is. I think you were a large part of the reason it
was such a success.
House Party (2006)
You were the perfect DJ and you played just the right (and appropriate)
music for our kids and the adults too. Thanks for all you do and I can’t wait till the next party.
Greg and Jodi Yaculak
50th Birthday Party (2004)
hired HardRock's DJ Service for my wife's 50th birthday party. Upon doing the invitations I found out that there were other
birthdays and wedding anniversaries all around the same time. So I called the party summer fun. I must admit that Bob Hartman
did a fantastic job. There were over seventy people there at the party and I heard nothing but great praises for an excellent
job by HardRock's DJ Service. The music selection was great. The contests and special additions that Bob did were an unexpected
add-on and a pleasure. A good time was had by all. I would definitely re-hire and highly recommend HardRock's DJ Service for

Broomes Island, Maryland
Birthday Party (2008)
Thank for your awesome ” DJing”
at my husband’s surprise 50th birthday party. You played the perfect combination of zydeco, 70’s, 80’s and
a few modern cool songs (Thanks Mrs. Hartman!)
As many of us know, music brings us back
to certain times that have etched memories on our hearts forever, and your choice of songs certainly brought us back to the
years we treasured and laughed at. Many of my guests commented on just how great the music was and it definitely put everyone
in the mood to party. Who can’t resist a little Foreigner to get you going??? Nothing better than a good cigar, a great
hand of cards, dear friends, a “ beverage of your choice” and some rockin’ music!!! It all adds up to one
incredible party. Thank you for making this milestone a memorable one! We will definitely call you when I turn 50! YIKES!!
50th Birthday Party (2010)
Thank you for rocking Joyce’s (Big 50) surprise birthday party.
Most DJ’s blare the music at the crowd, I really appreciated how you spread the speakers around the room so people wanted
to dance but could also carry on conversations. You had everyone from 4-80 years old on the dance floor having a great
I remember all the teen club dances you did for Saint Pius X.
I will never forget the night when my son’s basketball team had just come from winning the championship. You called
all the boys up on the stage and played “We are the Champions” as all the girls cheered. Those boys
thought they were studs. You made a lasting memory for all those boys.
You have a great intuitiveness to understand and give the customer what they need. That’s why you’re
50th Birthday Party (2012)
What a great time everyone had
at my husband's 50th Birthday Bash! I love that you played anything and everything that our guests wanted to hear. I think
we wore a hole in the dance floor! Thank you for working out a deal with us to play an extra 2 hours as well. I loved that
our friends didn't want to leave. This all means that the party was a success.

60th Birthday Party (2014)
and his team were a delight to work with! I planned a surprise 60th birthday party and didn’t want to have to manage
every detail, like the entire music list. Bob got some back ground information, showed up on time and gave us fabulous and
professional service. The music was great and he was flexible with the schedule of activities. Everyone had a great time and
I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a reasonable DJ. His attention to detail was only superseded by his friendly
and collaborative attitude. He made the party an easy success!

We can't thank you enough for all
that you did to make my mother-in-laws 70th surprise party such a blast!
The music was perfect and everyone had a great time dancing and singing. It meant a lot to Diana and her sisters when you
played their special songs. The evening made such great memories and we are so glad that we had a fabulous DJ to help make
it all happen. (The children loved having you there too!) We will always remember Hardrocks DJ service when anyone has a special
Thanks a million,

Birthday Party (2004)
Thank you so much for the wonderful job!
I think everyone had a good time. I know my mom did! In fact, my aunt emailed this morning and said she had a great time!
I had a good DJ who played a variety of music. She was glad she could enjoy dancing since she doesn't get to do that often.
Thank you again. I'll call you again when I need a DJ.
103rd Birthday Party (2015)
So sorry Bob that it has taken me so long to send this to you.
Your participation as D.J. for my Fathers 103rd Birthday was spectacular. You provided more than I could have hoped
for. I can't tell you all of the positive feedback I have received from all of my guests.
I will definitely be using
It was obvious that you were one of the crowd. You more than met any expectations I had. You were so willing
to accommodate any requests or needs that we had. Give me a couple weeks and I will be sending you a little extra since you
did such a wonderful job. I will also be sending the picture link in case you want to use some of you that the photographer
Thanks Again and looking to work with you again.
College Graduation Party (2017) Bob
What a wonderful night we had this past Saturday thanks to your DJ services. You played great music all night long
that had everyone up and dancing!
You understood that
we had quite a mix of people invited and really played a great variety of music.
playing all of Meghan's favorites as well as a few of her mother's;)
We had such a great night
and you were a big part of it.
I didn't expect all the glow necklaces, bracelets and the rings

We will be sure

With a grateful happy heart,
College Graduation Party (2010)
Thanks for making my daughters college graduation party more fun than any of us imagined. Everyone ages 21 to 60+
had a blast and most of the credit goes to you. We can't thank you enough for making the memories even more special.
When we need a dj again there is no doubt that we will call you.
High School Prom (2010)
I just wanted to give you some feedback from our prom
last month. Thank you for a great evening, the music was a success! Our students had a great time and I appreciated
the professionalism that was shown throughout the evening.
Calvert High School
Please accept my sincere apology for the delay
in writing to you. With everyone’s busy, hectic summer schedule, our DuVal High School Reunion Committee members finally
found a date to get together.
It is not hard to believe that everything said was extremely
positive. Some of the comments were: “It was great that the DJ actually played songs that we requested”, “The
DJ was involved, but not obtrusive”, “He was extremely efficient”. One of our committee members stated that
“Having you as the DJ worked out great. It was the one thing of the evening that we did not need to worry about”.
I, myself personally, appreciated the fact that you were so willing to help us out when ever asked and especially with our
“Senior Moment Trivia Questions and Answer Game”. Everyone seemed to have a great time trying to remember things
of the past and being rewarded with a gift too. Thank you for completely handling that for us. We really appreciate you working
with us whenever asked.
Thanks Bob for all your help in contributing to the success of
our DuVal 30th Class Reunion. It was a pleasure working with you, and we will certainly keep you in mind for any upcoming
School Dance (2005)
I wanted to write this letter in reference to the services your company, HardRock’s DJ Service, has provided
for us over the last 3 years. I want to begin with thanking you for providing such excellent, reliable, fun and flexible services.
Scheduling dances and other events for young people (6th – 12th grade) can be challenging given today’s culture
You seem to have a special gift and talent for selecting music that is appropriate
for our Catholic Christian environment, YET appealing for all the young people who attend. Your creative style of lighting
and special effects makes it fun and exciting for the youth. As a matter of fact, our dances have consistently been well attended
not only by the youth of our parish but from the surrounding parishes as well. Since our young people have requested having
dances more often, these dances have become a monthly event here at our parish. Our young people look forward to the dances
you DJ. Your great service, reasonable costs, and flexible scheduling make it virtually a hassle free
event to coordinate and plan. I look forward to continuing our great working relationship.

School Dance (2003)
Bob Hartman of HardRock's DJ Services
performed at my son's school dance. His rapport with the students and knowing their music preferences was so helpful. He kept
the kids interested, involved, and happy. This was my first time organizing a dance, and I could not have done it without
Bob. You will not find a more professional DJ, or businessman. I will definitely hire HardRock's DJ Services again. His main
concern was that the kids had a good time. Parents, staff, and chaperones did, too! I would recommend the services of HardRock's
DJ Service. He is adaptable to all ages and occasions. He is a likeable personality and that is immediately evident.

I am writing to thank you for your outstanding efforts at our 8th grade dance this year. Your selection of music
was right on and got everyone on the dance floor. Students raved about your work in school over the next few days and asked
that we get you back for our picnic. We invited you back and we were not disappointed! I appreciate the efforts you made to
arrange a visit beforehand to survey the site and talk with me about my expectations for the evening. You did everything you
said you would to make our event a successful one and our students and staff really benefited from your organization and commitment.

Back To School Meeting / Dance (2010)
Thank you for making our Back to School meeting such a blast! Your music provided the background for our dinner and entertainment
for our students while the parents visited the classrooms. You made returning to school fun and enjoyable!! Thank you again
for making the evening so special.

Church Picnic (2005)
of Bob Hartman of HardRock's DJ Service during our recent church picnic was absolutely tremendous! Bob's attention to detail,
his flexibility, and his keen sense of the "crowd atmosphere" all contribute to his ability to ensure a great time.
This is the first time that we've had a DJ at our annual picnic. From now on, it will be mandatory! Bob was able to flawlessly
provide a mix of music that appealed to a wide range of people, and I received many comments regarding his selection. Bob's
sense of what will "go over" well with what I'm sure was a difficult audience is a testimony to his professionalism
and his craft. We will definitely ask him back time and time again.

Years Eve Gala (2013)
I had to take a moment to send a big
"THANK YOU!" to you for a great New Year's Eve Gala at St. Joseph's Church in Pomfret,
MD. The evening began with beautiful and quiet music, just like we requested, so people could talk, mingle and eat.
The dancing began and the floor was packed. The variety of music was wonderful. The best compliment I can give
is that people are asking about next year, and if there is a next we know who our DJ will be. I would highly recommend
you and hope to see you next year. Give my best to your lovely wife, Rose. Have a blessed 2013.

Thank you so much for making our daughter's First Communion celebration an absolute success!! Since this
was the second time we've used your DJ services, I knew it would be good. But, in fact, you exceeded our expectations! Always
professional and pleasant and so engaging! And the music selection was phenomenal!! Our guests ranged from the ages of 7 to
about 70 and you pleased them all, with everything from the current top hits to popular line dances and even to reggae. Thanks
to you, everyone had a BLAST! Thank you once again and I'm looking forward to our next "event" together.

Just wanted to thank you for
making the St. Mary's Harvest Dance a great success! You played all the requests that everyone wanted which made the dance
so much fun! I am still hearing from people how much fun the dance was, and I think it was because of the music!!!! You are
great and we are looking forward to having you dj the Harvest Dance next year!DJ HardRock Bob is a fantastic compliment to our lounge. He offers a wide range of music to
please the crowd at the club. He plays rock, rap, progressive, top 40, dance, oldies, classic rock, and the list goes on!
He somehow manages to keep the people dancing. He has a very crowd-interactive program. The customers love his trivia questions.

Company Party / Awards Ceremony (2009)
Thank you for helping make the GST Annual Gala a wonderful event. I really appreciate your willingness to work with
me as the demands of this Latin theme party evolved. You arrived early and had all of your equipment in place well before
the guests arrived. When the “live” entertainment was late for the evening, without being asked you played Latin
music until he arrived and set up his equipment. You worked closely with us to have suitable music for the special dance recital.
After the awards portion of our evening was over it was your turn. As requested you played a wide variety of music. You played
Latino music, to the Grateful Dead, onto Country then Jazz, then Glenn Miller and the president of GST’s favorite Phantom
of the Opera. The music you choose had quite a few of us up and dancing. I received a several compliments from my co-workers.
Some of the things they said were:
• Ramon said, “I liked the music. I can dance to anything. I dance better
to that music.”
• Karin said, “The music was good. It looked like everyone was dancing.”
Larry said, ”He played a lot of different music for different people.”
• Jan said, ”I liked the
DJ. I think he did a good job.”
• Linda said, “I always like his DJ-ing services. Bob and Rose do a
wonderful job. Bob is always very professional.”
• Amy said, ”I liked the music. He was playing a lot
of the music I requested.”
• Mark said, “I was just waiting for the dance music to start. When I heard
Glenn Miller start I knew I had to dance.”
I appreciate working with a true professional. You were able to segue
from the Latin themed evening complete with a dance demonstration to a regular let loose have a good time party. I think more
people stayed longer for this party than ever before. Thank you again for making it a really enjoyable evening.

great selection of classic rock and movie music. We really appreciated his friendly attitude and we look forward to Hardrocks
