The Bride’s Choice Award from WeddingWire- 6 Years in a row!

2009 - 2014

DJ Derek Romanoff has been a professional independent deejay for over 20 years and is affiliated with the #1 talent agency, according to Washingtonian Magazine, in Washington, DC.  He has performed at thousands of events from birthday parties, corporate events, school dances, fundraisers, engagement parties, weddings, and many others.  His years of experience as a deejay, his love of music, and his attention to detail make him a perfect fit for couples and party planners who are looking for a deejay that provides exceptional service with a great mix of music.

Though DJ Derek Romanoff performs at all types of events, his love and specialty are weddings.  With over 16 years of experience in the wedding field alone, a wealth of knowledge about wedding etiquette, the ability to select a music that caters to his client’s tastes and weddings, and a professional voice for announcements, DJ Derek Romanoff provides a performance that encourages good times and dancing by all generations.

DJ Derek Romanoff’s goal is not only to meet, but to exceed your expectations from the moment you contact him.

"DJ Derek Romanoff knows his music and is great with gauging the mood (the dance floor never emptied once we started) but he is also really flexible and responsive to what we were looking for. It felt like he coordinated the wedding more than our day-of coordinator - he was always on top of the schedule and did a great job of announcing things - never coming off as cheesy. Overall we LOVED Derek and if there was only one vendor we could keep in the whole wedding, it would probably be him.”

"DJ Derek Romanoff exceeded our expectations throughout the preparation and at our wedding reception.”

DJ Derek Romanoff was phenomenal.  Derek did our music for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. He stayed within our playlist and mixed it in a way that kept everyone dancing. He was very professional and responsive."

If you’re ready to have the night of your life, you want your friends and family to have a wonderful night to party and remember, and you want your deejay to make sure you’re taken care of you from the moment you arrive; then let DJ Derek Romanoff take care of your music needs

"DJ Derek Romanoff was beyond excellent in his professionalism. He took the time to really understand what our dreams were about our reception and helped us find the perfect music to fit our ideas. Multiple guests told us that our reception was the best party they had ever been to, and we know Derek was instrumental in that."

"DJ Derek Romanoff instilled us with confidence from our very first conversation. During planning, he answered my many logistical questions quickly, professionally and knowledgeably, offering his expert advice when needed. I didn't have a wedding coordinator, so Derek's experience and input was incredibly helpful, and he helped the evening run smoothly by keeping everyone on schedule. On the day of the wedding, he was courteous, friendly, organized, the consummate professional -- and a FANTASTIC DJ. We were really particular about the music and had an extensive "do" and "do not play" list (which we completed using Derek's helpful interactive online planner), and Derek nailed it in selecting music that suited our preferences. My guests were on the dance floor the ENTIRE night -- even some relatives that we've never seen dance. He also provided some amazing atmospheric Uplighting that was a complete surprise!

We got a ton of compliments from our guests on how great Derek made our reception; and in fact, my Maid of Honor ending up booking him for her own upcoming wedding. I could not have wished for a better DJ! "

I cannot say enough great things about Derek Romanoff. We first met him when he deejayed my sister's wedding in June 2010 and we knew as soon as we were engaged that Derek was one of the first vendors we needed to contact.

His energy is incredible. He really knows how to keep a dance floor packed. He is incredibly professional and his appearance is never short of impeccable. He has the perfect amount of personality and worked with our coordinator to make the timeline and flow of the evening flawless.

His online planning service made selecting our music easy and painless. We gave him a small list of songs that we wanted to hear during different portions of the evening (cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing) and he filled in the rest. He has an amazing talent for playing what the people want to hear and keeping the guests entertained.

I really just cannot say in words how happy we were with our wedding and how big of an impact Derek had on that outcome. We have recommended him to several friends, who have hired him happily, and will continue to spread the word about what an amazing DJ (and person) Derek is.

I love working with DJ Derek Romanoff! I have photographed two weddings that he has deejayed and I can't say enough about him! He is one of the most respectful and classy DJ's you could ever work with. The music he plays completely embodies the personalities of his clients. Since I've been to two of his weddings, I can tell you both were very different in terms of the music (one was mostly jazz, the other very hard rock/pop/rap), and that's because he zeros in on exactly what his clients want. The best part? People are on the dance floor no matter what music he plays! If that doesn't speak for itself, I don't know what does!

You absolutely will not regret using DJ Derek Romanoff for your wedding. I will continue to recommend him to all my clients should they be looking for a DJ. He is a true professional, and I hope to keep working with him for years to come!
