If you are searching for the perfect event DJ, it’s time to stop, and hire Dayve before he books your date with someone else.
We were debating between bands and a DJ but after speaking with Dayve, we quickly made our choice. Dayve was recommended by another vendor, his online reviews were impressive, and his website was informative. Having a destination wedding, we were slightly anxious about who to choose but after a Skype interview we were quickly blown away, his knowledge of music, development of the wedding timeline, and assistance in figuring out what we wanted (even when we didn’t know). He far exceed our expectations, was hyper-organized, detailed, and committed to making our event exactly what we wanted; making recommendations, blending custom songs, and being on top of every detail. He set up three different sets of equipment (ceremony, cocktail, reception), provided uplighting, dance floor monograms, and was always three steps ahead, knowing exactly what we’d need to do next. His laid back emcee personality, and use of our playlists which were tailored on the fly to meet our guests musical “needs” meant all of our guests from ages 5 -92 enjoyed the evening. He was hyper-aware of everything going on, from where we were (and when we stepped out), to keeping music lined up with food service, photography, speeches, videography and everything else we didn't consider.
He brings the experience of an expert who’s done a thousand weddings, and the excitement of someone doing his first.
He was a huge part of making our night perfect. We could not recommend a DJ more highly! -Sloane & Jared

DJ Dayve was the DJ for my mom's wedding this past weekend at the Naples Grande. I have attended and worked over 50 weddings and DJ Dayve was by far the best wedding DJ that I have ever worked with.Sent on 04/17/2017
Throughout the entire planning process he went above and beyond with multiple conference calls, to-do lists, meetings, excel spreadsheets with playlists for each portion of the night, and instantaneous responses. On the day of the wedding he was the first vendor at the venue (Naples Grande), arriving 5 hours before the ceremony!
When he first arrived we went through the entire timeline one more time to make sure that we were both on the same page, and we were! The set up was amazing with professional DJ booth, trusses, and up lighting.
Once the wedding started the professionalism continued. He spoke very eloquently. Most importantly, he kept my mom's wedding guests on the dance floor the entire night with classic & new hits that catered to our guests! Additionally, if he noticed that all of the guests weren't dancing to a certain song he would make a smooth transition into the next show stopper.
Do yourself a favor and hire DJ Dayve for your big day, you WON'T regret it! A true class act! Thanks again for everything. :)

Thank you so much!
We just had our vow renewal ceremony/party this past weekend in South Beach (138 people) and we are SO glad we had DJ Dayve as such a huge part of it. He DJ’ed for one of our friend’s weddings in Naples back in February and it was the party of a life time. So when it came time to pick our DJ, I reached out to him. He was super responsive, so organized and helpful and very reasonably priced. We had a video meeting and discussed the details and he had such good questions to help him figure out our style and type of music we liked. Leading up to the event, I kept telling my husband how he was the best vendor because he was so professional, organized and chill. I actually used his event timeline as my own because it was so good, and I hadn’t even started my own yet. As it got closer, he had a thorough questionnaire to give him more information and ideas of our taste and what we wanted for specific parts of the night. From that and a couple other video meetings, he built out full playlists from the ceremony to the last song of the night. Once we went through the playlists (which were spot on), I basically told him I loved the vibe and how pumped up everyone was from my friend’s wedding back in February and he took that and on the day of, everything was amazing. He was so calm and friendly, made us feel very relaxed and the music was perfect. When we had little changes through the day/night he handled them so smoothly. No one would ever know the difference. Everyone was out of the dance floor and having the time of their lives. I literally couldn’t stop jumping up and down in my wedding dress. I was so happy. DJ Dayve made our day extra special and I would do it all over again with him if I could. Trust me, you want him to be part of your special day. He’s the best! Thank you DJ Dayve!!

Every single one of our couples that book DJ Dayve never fail to express how much they love him; even before their event - and I could not agree more! DJ Dayve brings a lot of energy and passion to every event. He is extremely responsive and always on top of every detail. We have worked together on multiple occasions and his flexibility to accommodate to a specific bride is second to none. As a video crew we are always trying to capture the best that the atmosphere has to offer, and Dayve certainly makes our job that much easier. Highly recommended!
LOVE DJ DAYVE!!! He is so good at what he does! Knowledgeable, easy to work with, and super fun! He really knows how to keep people on that dance floor!
DJ Dayve provided the musical entertainment for two weddings that my company filmed. He was very professional to work with and I'm truly grateful for the clean audio feed I got from him for the ceremony and speeches. You can't always count on your dj to supply a decent audio feed to the video vendor. DJ Dayve was courteous, well dressed, and kept the audio on point and the guests dancing. I look forward to grabbing another audio feed from him and watching him get the crowd out of their seats and on to the dance floor.
