A brief introduction to DJ Trumastr
Another say I tru wedding
You are a true gem. I cannot tell you how many people who came to our wedding are still talking about you and how fantastic you are.
From the moment we met you at our home here in Boston, we knew we would have an incredible time with you. We were so touched by your interest in our story, in our lives....so thrilled by your excitement toward our music wish-list....so moved by how involved you became. Yes, you are an incredible DJ...you wove the music flawlessly through the night...but what sets you apart is how much heart you put into your work. We felt it from you, and it made all the difference in the world.
So thank you, over and over, for being such an amazing part of our wedding. We will never forget it. And we expect you to come visit us the next time you're in Boston!!
Fondly, Sophia and Jimmy
We felt that your music selection really set the whole mood and was exactly what we looking for...
We felt that the music was on target to who are and in a way showcased our personalities and love for each other. We loved how you mixed it up with current music as well as older songs (I personally loved hearing "Little Bitty Pretty One" and Elvis). It all flowed together really nicely and never felt broken up or mismatched. We felt that the day was perfect and was representative of who we are as individuals and as a couple.
Thanks again for all your hard work, time, and energy!

"Truemaster brings a unique, hip, fun and creative vibe musically to any event.
He possesses an intense knowledge of music to his core and loves entertaining people and making them happy. I have been lucky enough to have Tru as a DJ for personal events as well as on many weddings and events for my clients. A Truemaster party is simply one of the best! and when it ends you can't wait for the next!"
Katie O' Malley
We can't imagine having had anyone else DJ our wedding.
True was professional as well as very warm and caring, and he knew exactly the mood we were trying to set for the wedding- classy and upbeat, with a little bit of retro soul thrown in.
His introductions were wonderful and he kept the day flowing perfectly. I'm very grateful to have had a day of beautiful music, which uplifted the spirits of our guests and which put smiles on our faces.
Anna & Matt Varney
First off, thank you for an awesome time!
You made such a difference in the flow and atmosphere of the wedding. We both had complete faith in you after hearing you at another wedding. That being said, we still can't get over how you kept everyone (of every generation) out on the dance floor all night!
We still get comments about what a wonderful DJ we had, and we recommend you to everyone! We'll see you at a wedding in May and can't wait to dance it up again!
You're the best!

DJ Trumastr is one amazing soul, who manifests his brilliance
through his intuitive DJing.
I have never seen Tru at a gig where he is not wearing his giant infectious smile, dancing his own heart out, and looking out over the crowd, NOT at his computer screen. Tru is a master, dedicating his life to this work, from his days as a crate digger, to spinning vinyl, to organizing music festivals, to masterfully mixing beats and video.
But, to call Tru a DJ does not do justice to his musical genius. His love for life and foundational integrity guide every interaction I have ever had with Tru. Tru speaks his heart through his work. Those blessed to be in the presence of his musical artistry, quickly are enveloped by the connection that Tru creates through his intimate relationship with music. Whether you know it or not, Tru’s infectious spirit manifests through his work behind the tables and elevates the energy of a crowd to spiritual levels.
The Soul Fire Farm family exclaims: We love this DJ and the man beneath it through and through! "
Tru, thank you again for being amazing at what you do!
From initial contact you were nothing but professional, courteous, and helpful. At our meeting I appreciated your enthusiasm about performing at our reception; you shared a lot of good information for a first time bride, and really helped us form a great play list for our evening. I also LOVED the uplighting you did at the venue; it truly pulled the whole room together, and everything was perfect. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a great DJ! If ever need a good reference, send them our way. We can't thank you enough.

DJ Trumastr was recommended to us as someone who was "not a wedding DJ but a DJ who can play a wedding." The only thing we would change of that statement is that...
Tru is a DJ who will rock your wedding.
We ended up finding Tru about 2 weeks before our wedding when we realized we needed a replacement DJ. He agreed to meet with us the very night we called him and, within minutes of meeting, he had eased all the fears we had about making such a huge change right before our wedding day and using a "non-wedding DJ". He was professional, kind, listened intently to what we wanted, and was clearly a highly skilled artist. After a bit, he started giving us a little taste of what he could see himself playing based upon the vibes we had talked about for each section of the day (from pre-ceremony to reception). He was spot on and we immediately booked.
On the wedding day, Tru delivered more than we ever expected. The soundtrack he created was perfect - he found a way to make the music hit the exact mood we wanted for every portion of the day...and it was almost like he purposefully orchestrated it so the music crescendo-ed at the end of the night into a crazy, fun, "I never want it to end," party where everyone (and we mean everyone) was dancing their heart out. The reception passed by in such a blur but we both remember that every time we saw Tru, he was doing his thing behind the tables, grinning ear to ear, and loving the moment just as much as we were.
We could go on and on but we'll stop here. In short - Trumastr was exactly what we wanted, our guests raved about the music, and we simply cannot recommend him highly enough. (Also - a total bonus is that, after the wedding, you can go visit him when he plays locally and relive some of the fun that he can create...and occassionally he might throw in your wedding recessional song. We don't know if it's purposeful but was a somewhat unused song and it just seems so right when he plays it!)

“Truemaster’s excellent DJing kept our dance floor rocking for 6 straight hours.
He played music that appealed to our 90s hip hop loving friends and our old classics loving parents without letting his playlist get clouded by the stereotypical dance songs that are played by far too many DJs out there. We would recommend Truemaster to any and everyone and we hope to soon have a reason to throw another huge party with him.”

DJ Trumastr and his team made our wedding reception amazing!
From the wedding party intros to the father/daughter and mother/son dances to the packed dance floor – everything was perfect. I had so much fun that I didn’t eat because I spent so much time on the dance floor. Everyone felt compelled to dance – from my 12 year old cousin to my husband’s 80 year old great aunt.
Most importantly though, as a nervous young bride and groom, my husband and I were impressed by his professionalism and attention to detail. We had an in depth in person meeting where we got to know one another. He was extremely responsive to all of our requests and was able to provide a cool mix of hip-hop, R&B, reggae, and salsa that represented our culturally diverse backgrounds. He was even able to accommodate us on our last-minute requests at midnight the night before the wedding. We were told multiple times that ours was the best wedding ever and Truemaster was a huge part of that!

Our wedding day was more than I could have ever dreamed of.
Our vendors and I had quite the knack for reading our visions and overall atmospheric goals. Months later guests still talked about how great our DJ was, he is truly talented, I wish the music didn't have to end. My grandfather said it was the wedding of the century!
It was a fairy tale. We are so grateful for our family, friends, neighbors, and everyone who participated to help make the day as spectacular as it was.
“True listened to our very specific requests
...for the evening and was enthusiastic to meet those requests. The night of the event we were met with many obstacles from weather, to the opening musicians equipment getting wet and failing, to DJ Tru’s own equipment in part not cooperating…all that said no one at the event even noticed! Tru covered the other musicians’ scope and seamlessly blended into his own sets to spite being 1 turn table down. A class act that definitely delivered, thanks!!”
“DJ Trumastr is amazing. He is personable, interactive and knows the right music to play at the exact right time.
He was flexible and receptive to our opinions and requests. We heard no complaints about the music being too loud, too soft, etc. His music brought our young cousins, crazy friends and parents all on the dance floor together.
The perfect DJ for the perfect day!”
Shane and Samantha Cassidy
My fiancé and I were so relieved when we finally found DJ Tru for our wedding reception. Before finding him, we were only finding cliché, out-dated and cookie cutter DJs.
DJ Tru was such a breathe of fresh air
– he was able to mix all of our requested genres (both old, new and a bit of the lesser known) perfectly. An absolute professional to work with, extremely responsive and flexible.
Ian and Liz
Hiring True may have been the best decision we made during the entire wedding planning process.
We were looking for a DJ who could make our wedding more of a great party than the same old wedding reception. We wanted an artist, someone with real musical talent, an extensive song collection and understanding of how to keep a party going all night. We found DJ Trumastr and it was clear that his vision for our wedding was completely in tune with our own.
At the wedding and the after-party True exceeded our expectations. His music collection was amazing, his song choices were spot on and his energy as the MC of the night was fantastic. Guest after guest commented to us that True was phenomenal. We are forever indebted to him for helping make our wedding an amazing and memorable night. We highly recommend True as he will take your party from a run of the mill event to a perfect time that everyone will remember forever.

Feedback from misc. events:
“Trumastr provided music for our professional reception and audio support for our three-member panel discussion on the same night. He chose music appropriate to the night’s theme, remaining conscious of speaker placement and volume levels in order to best facilitate socializing at the reception. Without neglecting the services he was responsible for he was attentive to attendees, adding a welcoming element to the evening. Tru was mindful of technical issues during the panel discussion while also acting as a conscientious audience member. He cooperated with our social media efforts by re-posting our tagged invite and photos. The business process was seamless from the request for services to punctual and worry free set-up through final payment. Expectations were high for this product promotion and networking event and
Trumastr was the right choice.”
