Great service, value, and experience

Dave made our wedding a high energy dance party. His music selection kept our guests out on the dance floor and lead our wedding through the night. Dave was very attentive as a DJ and MC and an excellent communicator.

We say his 10 steps to get a party started video, and he definitely followed through! Highly recommend reaching out to Dave if you need a DJ for a wedding!

Dj dave is the best!

Dave is the BEST!
I first met Dave by working alongside him -- I'm a wedding photographer, and our paths crossed at a wedding we both worked together. He immediately impressed me: unlike some other "DJs" out there, he actually knows his stuff when it comes to audio. He also proved right away that he shows attention to detail and safety -- taping down cables and sand-bagging his speaker stands. He showed outstanding professionalism through his communication with all the other vendors, ensuring we were all on the same page and that the couple's day would run smoothly. During the reception, his personality shone, proving that he's not just a pro at logistics, but also knows how to address and entertain a crowd. I was sold.

So when it came time to hire vendors for my OWN wedding, Dave was the first person I thought of. What better way to know that your DJ will be awesome than to have personally seen him at work at another wedding? After one Zoom meeting, my fiancee (now wife) was sold too.

First off, Dave could (and should) be charging MUCH more for his stellar services. So you get him at a steal! But also, he has an awesome personality, takes communication seriously, has plenty of experience to bring to the table, and is just an all-around great guy! Both our wedding planner and venue coordinator raved about how awesome it was to work with Dave. (For those keeping count, that's now 3 wedding industry professionals who swear that Dave is the best.)

Despite being based in Santa Clarita, he made a point to do a walkthrough of our Escondido wedding venue with our venue coordinator months ahead of the date, working out unloading details and more.

My wife had a very specific vision for the ceremony music, and Dave executed it all flawlessly. On the day, he acted as a second coordinator, keeping the day going smoothly and keeping the good vibes flowing.

He even surprised us at the end of the day by presenting us with a mix CD of our wedding day playlist -- an amazing personal touch. And then he kept the connection going by sending us a handwritten thank you card -- a gesture so often overlooked and underappreciated.

Hiring Dave for your special day is one of the best decisions you could make. If you value professionalism, awesome communication, and *good vibes*, DJ Dave is definitely the way to go. You won't regret it.

The Epitome of an Excellent MC/DJ

Dave is the epitome of an excellent MC. When I first hired him I did not know what exactly a DJ or an MC really did. After working with Dave for my wedding, he has set an incredibly high standard. Dave's level of professionalism and attentiveness to our wedding was remarkable.

He not only learned our wedding timeline, he even helped make it! His experience and attention to detail showed from the first day we hired him all the way to the big day. As a master of ceremony he was in charge of moving the party along and took that stress out of our hands.

Beyond all that, the music was amazing. We requested several different genres and songs in different languages and even so, his music was on point all night. The dance floor was packed from the beginning of the party to the time they had to kick us out of the venue.

You cannot find a better MC for your wedding or special event. Thank you Dave!
