The Best Wedding DJ!

Hiring Akib as our wedding DJ was easily one of the best decisions we made. From the time dancing started until the very last song of the night, our dance floor was packed. Working with Akib was a great experience. He took the time to get to know what was important to us on our wedding night, and beyond exceeded our expectations. He threw an absolute party for us, and we can't even count the amount of compliments we received from our guests about how great he was. He made every part of the night for us memorable- from the grand march, to the cake cutting, cocktail hour/dinner music, first dances, and most importantly, dancing. Also, his uplighting made the vibe that much better. If you're looking for an amazing DJ for any event, Akib is your guy!

Amazing MC & DJ for Wedding Reception

DJ Akib was so great to work with. He did such a fantastic job keeping the dance floor going during our entire reception - and multiple of our friends specifically mentioned how great our DJ was after the event. He cut between songs a the perfect transition points so that no one ever got bored. He was also very organized / reliable in the prep leading up to the event and made a great MC for the dinner portion of the reception. Highly recommend!

Organized the Day and Brought the Party to Life!

Akib is not only a great DJ but also great with the details ! He did an amazing job of reading the floor and playing music that kept everyone enjoying themselves! There were many parts of the wedding day process I was unsure about that Akib had covered. He helped organize the order of speeches, first dance, father of the bride dance etc. We were so happy with his services! He helped make our day feel special! He will definitely keep the dance floor packed! Our friends continue to comment on how great of a DJ he is!
