Best dance party ever!
The short version: We could not recommend DJ Troy more highly. His services don’t come cheap but—and this is coming from a couple on a budget—worth every penny. We cared a lot about music and dancing, and, thanks to DJ Troy, we and our guests had an absolute blast.
Planning: Troy is very professional and friendly, and he took the time to understand our vision for our wedding and the type of music we liked. We shared a few Spotify playlists with him to give him a sense of what we liked. We also told him that we liked mashups and dance remixes of songs that aren’t inherently the most danceable—we like a lot of rock and oldies, for example. We loved how excited Troy is about DJing—it is obviously his passion and his art—and how committed he is to creating an experience tailored to our tastes. We trusted him with the details, which was the right call, because...
Music: The music was awesome! He played songs we’d recommended and others that we hadn’t thought of but (a) were right up our alley, and (b) were huge crowd pleasers. In line with our vision, he played new stuff, old stuff, and some great mashups (Whitney Houston vs. Rihanna, for example, and Elvis, The Doors, Johnny Cash mixed with I don’t even know what). Like a total pro—he used to DJ clubs in San Francisco—he transitioned between all these genres with such finesse that the energy stayed high the entire evening. We have never seen such a large proportion of wedding guests dance for so long—everyone from the twenty-somethings to a 92-year-old grandma. The dance floor was packed, and guests of all ages and tastes raved about how much they liked the music and DJ Troy. Between the variety of genres, the mash-us, his artistic flare, and his ability to tailor the music to our preferences we can honestly say our music was unlike any other wedding that we’ve been to (and we’ve never had so much fun dancing).
MC: DJ Troy was our emcee for the night. Again, he was masterful: super suave, kept things moving along, added to the atmosphere without making it about him. He really read the crowd and came up ways to get crowd participation that were fun and memorable and did not feel in the least bit forced, leading to some of our favorite moments of the evening.
In sum: Before our wedding, we thought that we wanted a DJ and a live band—being fans of live music—but it wasn’t feasible for us to do both. After the wedding, we were glad we didn’t go for a live band, because we wouldn’t have wanted to sacrifice a minute of DJ Troy playing awesome music and keeping all of our guests on the dance floor and having a great time. He’s that good.

Dance party pro
DJ Troy made all the difference in our wedding at Kualoa Ranch. We enjoyed how his style is more focused on the dance party and less on the mic. We loved that about him and our guests really enjoyed themselves to the max. Probably the best vendor decision we made!
