All Around Raleigh DJ is a mobile disc jockey and wedding entertainment firm that has been entertaining the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Wake Forest, Cary and surrounding NC areas for many years. We are experts in wedding receptions, bar mitzvahs & bat mitzvahs, birthday parties, corporate functions, private parties, fund raisers, proms, school & college events.

My name is Eric X Hodgden and I am the owner and head DJ of the All Around Raleigh DJ Company. I'm originally from Wisconsin. I joined the US Army and moved to North Carolina in 1999 and am a very proud and patriotic American. I was stationed at Ft. Bragg until 2003 when I started my life-long goals of earning a college degree and starting my own business.

I studied at Wake Tech and NC State where I got my degree in Chemical Engineering. Those four years in the military and next 4+ in school taught me a lot about commitment and values. While at NCSU, I pulled out all of my savings and began the All Around Raleigh DJ Company. I had DJ'ed part-time in the past and discovered the enjoyment and the empowerment I felt when I got a big group dancing to my music I've really enjoyed meeting everyone that I have through my DJ business and have some really close friends because of it. Owning All Around Raleigh DJ Company has truly done things for me that I could not have imagined. I'm still working on that electric slide though! Today, we have a few DJs that work for us only if I can totally depend on them to provide the clients with impeccable personal service. We are looking forward to making superior and affordable DJ services from All Around Raleigh DJ Company available to everyone whether you need a wedding DJ, a party DJ or any other services.

I really enjoy volunteering and being able to offer great causes with great music and we do get involved in charities as often as we can. If you have a great cause, we would love to help you out with time and services.

Having All around Raleigh DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Eric Hodgden was our DJ and he did an amazing job. He was always willing to help and answer all of our questions we had during the planning of our wedding. He met with us a couple of times and followed up with emails fairly quickly. The day of the wedding, Eric did an incredible job by keeping everyone entertained with great music and announcements for our events in the reception. We couldn’t have been happier how our wedding turned out, thanks to the music provided by Eric. As some people said, our wedding was lit! We highly recommend booking All around Raleigh DJ for your wedding day!
Thank you so much!

Nick from All Around DJ was the absolute best!! He engaged the crowd and got them dancing, which is very difficult when it is a corporate holiday party. I was thrilled with the service we received. My coworkers raved about the DJ the following day, a huge success!
