Reachout (Patrick Coll) is a Brooklyn based DJ, originally from Edinburgh Scotland. He has 20 years experience DJing, and is also a recording artist and producer. In addition to spinning at parties all over New York City, he is a wedding DJ specialist known for his passionate and eclectic sets which he can deliver laptop and vinyl. He has an enormous music collection and knowledge of the treasures therein... Drawing on this enables him to appeal to a very broad range of age groups and demographics and his speciality is keeping the whole room entertained and engaged all night. He is also very comfortable MCing the party and making announcements etc.
In his own words...
“One of the things I truly love about wedding work is meeting couples beforehand to discover what music will make their day special. I take immense satisfaction and joy out of helping to create an atmosphere and experience that will ensure your wedding is as meaningful and memorable as possible for everyone involved.”
Event Planner's Dream DJ!
"REACH DJ’d a recent wedding for me where the guests were mainly professional musicians and DJ’s. That’s a tough Timon! But his ability to read the crowd and pace is sets was an art form unto itself. He got the entire room on the floor, even those who typically shy away from dancing. His presence behind the decks is so warm and engaging, when I looked out at the room it was a sea of smiles and moves. His musical knowledge is extensive pending him the rare ability to work with almost any client. A large portion of my time is spent finding and hiring DJ’s for events, in a perfect world I would just use REACH. My confidence that he can make that critical time of an event unforgettable is beyond compare. For the wedding I am referring to, REACH DJ’d sets on several nights, always mixing it up it with the same awesome result. He is a pleasure to work with to boot!" - Heather Kleisner
I’ve known Patrick for several years and was thrilled that we could have Reachout as the DJ at our wedding. It was essentially 25 percent wedding ceremony and 75 percent dance party and Reachout killed it for hours into the night. Almost everyone who commented on the evening said (aside from how great the bride looked) that the music was amazing and it felt like the party of the decade. And that was in no small part because Reachout read the crown and had everyone enthusiastically dancing, connecting with the crowd (from multi-generational to cross-cultural to cross-gender) until we closed out the venue. That takes a DJ with extensive musical knowledge and a feel for when the time is right to mix up what’s on the decks. Reachout worked with us on a playlist, hit our special tracks, but brought so much more to make our wedding fabulous. Patrick’s warm and engaging personality, experience as an artist, and passion for music makes his performance as a DJ unforgettable." - Daniel Park
"Reachout listened to our vision for the music, asked a couple of excellent questions and then crafted a perfect playlist to accompany our night. The music during cocktail hour was literally exactly what we envisioned, and he had people smiling laughing and dancing their socks off from the second he started until the party shut down. He was also easy to contact, always really pleasant and willing to travel out to my neighborhood to make plans and work with my hectic schedule. We really appreciated everything he did to make our day a blast for everyone." - Chelsea Kadish
"Reach killed it!" -Grandma (and everyone else)
"Having Reach DJing our wedding really made it special because everyone heard something they loved. He worked with us on suggestions beforehand and was amazing at making it all flow together. It definitely did not feel like a stale wedding playlist. We have no intention of getting married again, but maybe if Reach is available to DJ." - Amy Mirasola
"The most important thing to us at our wedding was the dance floor. Patrick kept people dancing all night long. The night ended with everyone chanting “one more song!” We’re so thankful that he did a great job mixing in our “must-plays” with other great songs. He was also super respectful of our “do not plays”. Great communication all-around. Super responsive. He even helped us pick a perfect version of the hora. Love Patrick!" - Phoebe Stonebraker
Professional and chill
"Patrick was very professional and knew exactly what kind of vibe my wife and I were going for. He was readily available and was not hard to get in contact with. He is very professional, meeting us in person, trying to find our likes and dislikes, and the general feel of our crowd. At the same time, he was very easy to talk to and all around chill DJ. I cant thank Patrick enough. Everyone at our wedding was having a blast and dancing. My wife and her bridemaid were were breaking it down on the dance floor all thanks to Patricks mixing. I would definitely recommend Patrick, if you are looking for a fun, exciting and memorable wedding!" - Sung Lee
The Perfect Match
"DJ Reachout was a match made in heaven. From the get go he was responsive, professional, friendly, and very collaborative. We are a creative couple who had a very particular/peculiar aesthetic for our wedding and he very quickly became part of our creative team. He worked hard to bring our aesthetic to everything musically and even when guests decided not to follow the prompts or the schedule he rolled with the punches, took charge, and adapted without breaking the magic of what we worked to create.
Everyone from 16-93 danced through the night.
I cannot recommend him enough." - Anthony Cole
Incredible Wedding DJ!
"DJ Reach aka Patrick was the perfect choice for our wedding DJ. He is very accommodating and easy to work with, professional and went out of his way to make sure he had everything we needed. His music selections were awesome and he knew just what to play when! Very highly recommended for any weddings/parties/events!" - Jenny McWilliams
Patrick was Great!!!
"We really enjoyed working with Patrick on our wedding day. He helped us out when we needed him the most. I know we were a crazy crowed but he admitted he had fun as well. Patrick has a great style and sense for the ambiance- he is very flexible and open to playing foreign music- he was super responsive and his services are very reasonably priced. I highly recommend him not just for a wedding party but for any party period! Patrick, thanks for everything once again" - Lana Brkic
Did a great job with my wedding
Patrick did a fantastic job with my wedding. We didn't have a wedding planner for our 70-person bar wedding, so he only had me to deal with, and I'm sure some of my communication was a little last minute. Patrick was always responsive and friendly along the way. A few weeks before the wedding, he met with my fiancé and me to get to know us in advance, and closer to the wedding, he asked me for schedules and plans and song requests. I appreciated his attention to detail ahead of time. He was also flexible! At the wedding, we made a last-second call to move the dancing inside to the bar, and we got off-schedule a few times, and Patrick rolled with it. A great guy! - Sarah Hammond
