Simply the best!

DJ Darla Bea is one of our favorite humans! She is so passionate about music and is the most knowledgable about an incredible variety! We had a Cuban/Grateful Dead beach wedding and she knew exactly how to blend everything together to make it flow smoothly and play to everyone's interests. She nailed the timing of all our favorite songs and kept multiple generations of guests on the dance floor throughout our entire night. She was easy to coordinate with and was quick to catch on to the type of vibe we wanted. She's simply the best- do yourself the favor and hire her!

Our Perfect Wedding Soundtrack

DJ Darla listened to what our vibe was and made sure that our wedding day was the perfect blend of our personalities. The music was perfect beginning to end and everyone mentioned that so many good songs were playing they couldn鈥檛 leave the dance floor! Music was the most important thing for us and Darla delivered!

DJ Darla was Everything!!

My wife & I picked our wedding date around DJ Darla's availability because that's how amazing she is. Our wedding wouldn't have been what it was without her and our guests wouldn't have had nearly as much fun on the dance floor without her. She was incredibly easy (and fun!!) to work with and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, easy to work with, DJ with all around good vibes.
