Dj for wedding
Alex was great! He played all the right songs for our receptions and got multiple compliments on the amazing DJ all night. He got there 2 hours early for the wedding and I didn’t have to do a thing on my special day. I would definitely recommend Alex to everyone getting married!Sent on 07/02/2021

Perfecto !! Awesome !! THE BEST DJ
The perfect DJ
Planning any event can be a pain in the neck, from catering to music it can all be overwhelming. We planned our wedding and discovered Alex on Yelp. Wasn’t hard to find out why he is the number one listed DJ on Yelp for the Palm Springs area. From our first meeting we knew Alex was the right guy for the job; professional presentation and breakdown of his services and left us with all our questions answered. From there he gave us access to a client portal where we entered all of our event details and he can get an idea of the music we like and plan accordingly.
On the day of the even from the minute Alex arrived at the venue I felt at ease as he’s preforming a basic mic check but the attention to detail floored me as I’m getting ready to put on my Tuxedo.
The start of the event went so smoothly and at no point did we stress over the presentation or music throughout the night.
Alex flowed the music to perfection and had the guests on the dance floor until the very end.
I couldn’t ask for a better DJ/Host/Person
Alex also helped us with the photo booth and the photo operator was a pleasant host to our guests and took great pictures.Sent on 04/26/2021

Hired to do ceremony and reception. Best decision I made. What a professional! There is more to DJ-ing than providing awesome music and reading the crowd (I had no idea how much!) which is exactly what he did. Had to change date twice and he made it so easy. He worked with coordinator so well (she also raved about him); was attentive to the time line. Bottom line; he’s amazing and you will not have a worry when you get him for your event. He only gets 5 stars bc 10 is not an option.Sent on 11/19/2020

Can we be honest with each other for a second? The “About Me” section for every DJ is, well, boring. You probably don’t really care about where I’m from, how I “got into DJing”, or even how many years I’ve been doing it. You care about one thing – can I provide an epic experience for you, your friends, and your family? And the answer to that question is a resounding YES!
I view everyone I work with not as clients, but as partners. My promise to you is that we will work together to create the exact atmosphere and experience you want for every part of your wedding or event. I then take all that information and combine it with my vast musical knowledge, high-level DJing skills, and years of experience reading crowds to create a musical experience that is uniquely YOU. From the flawless pre-ceremony playlist, to the perfect vibe during dinner, to the craziest dance party at the end of the night, music evokes the feelings and creates the memories that guests remember forever. So don’t settle. Go with the best.
When I’m not rocking dancefloors, I enjoy the occasional softball game to try and relive my glory days as a collegiate baseball player, playing with the cutest dog in the world (my pitbull named Freya), trying to read more, and eating way too much pizza.
