Derek did such a great job with our music for our wedding! We didn't give him much guidance but he was able to read the room and get people dancing. We come from two different cultures and have different music tastes but Derek was able to blend the two together in a way that definitely felt like it was OUR wedding rather than cookie cutter wedding music. He was also able to add uplighting for a very reasonable amount! Thank you Derek!Sent on 12/08/2019

The best DJ you can find
I'm not sure what else I can say about Derek Tobler that hasn't already been said in all of this 5 star reviews here. Every good thing said about him is absolutely true.Sent on 11/14/2019
I reached out to Derek to DJ my Oct 2019 wedding, and he was very quick to respond. Right off the bat, he was super chill and friendly. I already felt less stress just by talking to him. We had a call with him a couple of weeks before the wedding so he could get a feel for what kind of music we’d like. We really only gave him the basic answers (first dance song, father daughter song, etc), but he immediately knew what kind of crowd we would have based on our personalities and what not. He handled all of our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception music. He was on point with everything. All the music was on time, and there were absolutely no snags.
The reception was a hit. Seriously, every song was perfect. I say this without any sort of exaggeration, our dance floor was never empty. He kept guests dancing all night. I cannot recommend Derek Tobler enough.

Innovative, fun, professional. Dance floor full all night.
Derek was excellent in every way. He helped us do a silent disco at our venue for the first time, which our guests loved. He choreograph our first dance to a unique song. He made an awesome playlist that kept everyone dancing and that appealed to people with diverse music tastes. He seamlessly emceed, making all announcements and keeping important moments (like speeches and cake-cutting) on schedule. He was also flexible, at one point shifting the order of events to get everyone dancing sooner. And he effortlessly coordinated with other vendors, such as our planner, to ensure he had a minute-by-minute plan for the night. Best of all, Derek gave candid advice whenever we asked for it based on his experience and expertise and was a joy to work with.Sent on 10/28/2019
Entertainment should always be top of your priority list when planning a wedding. The music helps the overall atmosphere, which makes weddings wow! Derek definitely delivers. He's got you covered music wise, playing your hand-selected favorites, but also can help you coordinate your dances being an instructor himself. He's truly got it all and a great attitude to make the process easy along the way. DJ Tobler is a wedding day must have!
Derek stands out, head and shoulders, in the DJ field. A real gent, with advanced musical knowledge and a great sense of service.
I have worked with Derek at so many different venues . . . he can handle any challenge. Be it the UVA Chapel, Pippin Hill, Veritas or numerous other challenging outdoor locations, he always comes prepared to produce beautiful sound not matter what! He's classy too and throws a great party!
