About Keith Erickson Entertainment

Keith Erickson is a professional wedding DJ/MC and takes pride in making every event as special and unique as possible. He is known for custom tailoring a music program and wedding reception that reflects the bride and grooms personalities with a seamless flow, using only high quality professional sound and lighting.

Whether your looking for a DJ that specializes in audience participation or are looking for a more laid back elegant approach, DJ Keith has got you covered.

Working in tandem with site coordinators and other vendors as a team player, you can count on Keith to keep a party or reception running smoothly and to keep your dance floor packed!

DJ Keith grew up in a family of musical artists. Music and DJ’ing have always been his passion and way of life (As early as age 5, Keith was playing piano and soon after drums. Keith has a B.A. in Music from Florida State University).

DJ Keith’s clients continually express that what they care most about is (a) having the best music and entertainment available, and (b) to feel assured that there will be “no surprises.” (They don’t want to spend a lot of time worrying about whether or not their event will be a success. It should be a “given”).

Experience:
What you don’t want to happen is that something goes wrong at your event and your DJ has that “what do we do now?” look in his eyes. DJ Keith has been in business for over 7 years, and – with hundreds of events under his belt – there’s little DJ Keith hasn’t experienced nor dealt with.

Attention to Detail:
While DJ’ing may not be considered a rocket science, it does demand addressing “the little things” and being able to multi-task (i.e dealing with the unexpected things that inevitably will crop up and having a “feel” for the unique musical tastes of your guests – especially considering the increased diversity of our population in general).

DJ Keith is a constant professional that:

  • Has a deep knowledge of many styles of music.
  • Knows how to quickly analyze and adapt to diverse crowds and situations; for example, knowing what song to play at the appropriate time and volume.
  • Knows to let the music speak for itself. In other words, we will only be on the microphone when requested.
  • Will honor your “Must Play’s” and your “Do Not Play’s.”
  • Has a sense of FUN presented in a non cheesy fashion.

Here are some key traits DJ Keith offers:

  • Expert Analysis – DJ Keith knows how to read diverse crowds for 4, 5, 6 hours at a time and play the best music possible during that time. He will not play the same music for your event that was played at last weeks event. Each event is unique in it’s own way!
  • Appropriate Use of the Microphone – DJ Keith will make all the necessary announcements with the appropriate intonation and then will put the microphone away. DJ Keith will not be out on the dance floor begging guests to dance or interupting your guests with unnecessary banter. From years of experience it’s been proven that if great music is being played it speaks for itself.

Keeping Current

  • DJ Keith keeps up to date with all styles of current music and is already an expert on the “oldies”.

    DJ Keith - amazing planning and performance

    DJ Keith was amazing! He graciously traveled from Santa Monica to our wedding venue at the Belmond in Santa Barbara. We had a pretty short amount of time to prep for our November wedding and Keith helped plan tremendously. He is extremely well versed with the flow of a wedding and planned out everything music and sound system related for us. He met with us beforehand and had an additional Skype call leading up to our wedding to make sure everything was nailed down. Keith not only helped curate 4 different playlists for us, but did little things you normally wouldn't think about, like handing off microphones during speeches, and cues for fading in/out of songs. He was so professional and put us at ease leading up to the wedding. When you have so many other things to worry about it's nice to know that the music is handled. Highly recommend giving DJ Keith a call!

    Your Wedding DJ

    If you are looking for a wedding DJ, look no further. DJ Keith is your guy. We got married on the beach in Malibu. Keith set up the speakers for the ceremony as well as handled all the music for the entire wedding. He is pleasant to work with and easy going. He also knows his stuff and had great recommendations for us.

    We found the best DJ in California!

    We got married in September 2019 in Sequioa National Park, CA and DJ Keith was an integral part of making our wedding the happiest, most amazing day of our lives. He met with us beforehand and helped us develop a day-of plan, which included getting sound in a highly remote ceremony area with no power. He made it happen without any issues! He was super experienced, and a joy to work with. He really made it a fun, creative process. He curated playlists for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception that were tailored exactly to our tastes. The dance floor was always full! Keith was also a buoyant and delightful MC for the evening. He kept the flow of our reception on track. We didn't have to worry about a thing. We received multiple compliments from our friends, family, and wedding vendors on his professionalism, helpfulness, and overall awesomeness. Thank you DJ Keith for making our wedding day fun and stress-free!
