Best Party Atmosphere!

We hired Darby to DJ for our wedding and the main thing we wanted was to have a huge party with all our guest dancing on the dance floor! Darby didn't disappoint and maintained an energetic feeling through out the entire night. Our guest continue to rave about that night and the music is always one of the main highlights. We truly appreciate having Darby a part of our special day and the process of working with him is so simple and easy. High recommend him for your event!

Phenomenal

I can't rave about Stephen enough!! We came to Stephen with specific requests to figure out how to manage our very specific music taste while being able to incorporate every generation of guests. He also knew how to manage our ceremony music, according to our order of events and adjusted on the fly. Not only did he deliver, he EXCELLED. Every age was out on the dance floor from the beginning to the very end. We were constantly having "NO WAY"/mind-blowing responses when he played a new song. You know the music is good when three guests are asking for business cards at the end of the night, and two aren't even getting married anytime soon, but wanted for when the time comes. I have been trying to figure out ways to get Stephen back into our lives post-wedding. He was the most worth-it vendor and one of my absolute highlights. Please see pictures below to see the music energy stephen brought!

I cannot say enough about how great our experience with Darby was. Given the local and national name recognition, we knew that the music was going to be awesome but what really stood out was how professional he was. He knew exactly what needed to be planned and was very transparent (in a fun, honest way) about what he’s seen work well and what hasn’t. It was such a relief not having to worry about this portion of our wedding knowing he’d do a great job not just keeping people out on the dance floor but helping transition through the event smoothly. Oh and people couldn’t stop talking about those piano and DJ Mixes, highly recommend to anyone!
