When we began the process of looking for a DJ for our wedding, we searched through page after page of "wedding DJ's" and they all seemed the same to us. All very generic and not much evidence of what they could bring to the table. We wanted the music at our reception to reflect what our friends and us would want to dance to, but that our older guests wouldn't be scared off by either. We thought we were going to have to settle for one of the "generic" DJ's until we stumbled across Desert House Productions. DHP had great reviews, an informative website, and most importantly video of some of their parties. Finally we found what we were looking for!
We mostly worked with Dave, he was extremely professional from the first phone call to the last song. We met with him live and felt great about booking him the next day. They had plenty of options to tailor the music for our wedding from start to finish, we ended up using him to book a live guitarist for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and then had Dave DJ our reception. He made the whole process extremely easy on us.
We had a great final meeting with him a couple weeks before our wedding day to give him some ideas about what we wanted played at the wedding. He made this extremely easy on us too, we basically just gave him some suggestions and felt comfortable enough with his skills to let him do his thing from there. What a great decision that was! I'm pretty sure every single guest commented on how good the music was and it was surely reflected by the turnout on the dance floor. There was not a single second when the dance floor was not completely packed with people having the time of their lives. Parents, aunts and uncles were breaking it down next to the the 20-somethings.
Dave was also an excellent MC and was very organized in that respect, he helped talk us through the flow of events and made several suggestions from his experience that turned out to be great ideas.
I can't say enough good things about DHP, we had the best day of our lives and they were a huge part of it!

Desert House was perfect for our wedding!
Drea at Desert House absolutely killed it for our Phoenix wedding! We are from NYC and had never seen them DJ but after calls and emails, we had complete faith in her. Most of our friends book bands but we decided to change it up and go with a DJ. Our friends are still raving about the music, every single guest was dancing all night because of Drea! The amount of guests who have told us that this was the most fun wedding they'd ever been to is too high to count and we know that a lot of that is due to Drea. She was able to take the lead and see what worked with out guests, we can't thank her enough!

Simply the best!
Incredible people, sound, and music. Working with Dave was an absolute pleasure. As I planned my wedding, Dave was personable, professional, and deeply kind. I very tragically lost a dear friend who would have been at my wedding and Dave not only rescheduled our meetings with complete graciousness, but was a beautiful collaborator to discuss how we could honor the memory of my friend during the dance party. We also had Dave and his fantastic assistant run the ceremony music and sound. Our venue was so impressed with their professionalism and the excellent sound throughout the outdoor space that they are now going to be recommending them for all future events. Many of the guests made a point to mention how great the sound was during the ceremony, dinner, and dancing. Everyone loved that they could hear every word and note. On top of it all, Dave was wonderful for my Uncle and brother in law (both professional musicians) to work with to mic their bassoon and guitar for my bridal entrance. I was walking on cloud nine the entire evening and everything was so beautifully MC'd, I honestly couldn't imagine a better person to work with or a more flawless event.
This is an excellent wedding vendor. We highly recommend!
Worked with this sweet husband and wife team many times! Always deliver THE BEST in quality entertainment! We highly recommend Desert House Productions!
Drea and Dave are true professionals. They always do a great job for couples, are easy to work with and offer a product that's different from every other DJ in town.
