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”.

    The Best!! Professional and Fun!

    Keith did an incredible job as our DJ and MC for our wedding! He was very easy to work with an communicative throughout the entire planning process! He gave us a "workbook packet" for my husband and I to fill out in the months leading up to the wedding; this helped tremendously to have the songs and playlists be more geared to what we prefer. He was very personable, fun, and was a confident speaker. In addition, the clip on microphones during the ceremony and his Audio Speakers were at the perfect volume and were very discrete. Many of our guests complimented how professional he was, and how cool and unique his Trivia game was to dismiss each table for dinner. We couldn't suggest Keith more as your DJ!

    Keith Erickson Entertainment's reply:

    Thank you so much Sarah. You were the most beautiful bride and the evening was perfect over at Quail Ranch. Loved working with you and Kyle. Cheers!

    Amazing DJ!

    DJ Keith is the best! He was so amazing in the planning process and had great things to add that made our wedding extra special! Everyone at our wedding kept saying how great our wedding was and we had a packed dance floor all night! We highly recommend him!

    Keith Erickson Entertainment's reply:

    Francesca, I think you and John are freaking great! I'm so happy your wedding turned out so fantastic with the rented bistro lights, bad ass tacos and greg on guitar, all adding so much extra flavor. You looked incredible and I was feeling the family vibes all night. And yes, dance floor was rocking too! Hope to see you again soon. Cheers!
