    Couldn't imagine a better DJ

    Darla went above and beyond for our wedding! She did a great job handling my requests and guest requests. She also added songs that fit the vibe as needed. The dance floor was packed all night and we loved her glowsticks. Even some relatives who never dance at weddings were up on their feet. Darla even stayed for an extra 20 minute encore! Darla hit us with some local Santa Barbara trivia and was so fun to talk to throughout the night. Many of our guests said it was the most fun wedding they've been to in a while and we owe that to Darla for keeping the party going. Thanks for the amazing time Darla! Would highlyyy recommend!
