Les did a phenomenal job DJ-ing our wedding. She was friendly, professional, communicative, and flexible throughout the planning process and during the wedding itself. My husband and I wanted a packed dance floor and Les certainly delivered. She playing the music we and our friends loved and did an amazing job reading the dance floor. Because of a recurring joke throughout the speeches, my husband ended up with his shirt off on the dance floor and right on cue, Les started playing Pony. Everyone loved it. We hadn't picked the last song of the night ahead of time, but Les came and found me towards the end of the night and showed me which songs she hadn't played yet, and we quickly chose one. She got everyone on the dance floor for the last song, and that ended up being one of my favorite memories from the entire wedding. If you're looking for someone who isn't the typical cheesy wedding DJ, is obviously experienced and will keep your day running smoothly, and can handle an eclectic musical taste, go with Les!

Les and her partner provided exactly the sort of wedding DJ and dance experience we wanted. She mixed and transitioned songs beautifully, and totally understood (and expanded upon) our musical taste after we sent her some examples for both dinner and dancing. She was also extremely flexible with a last minute change-up -- we decided to kick off the dancing with a song that we hadn't discussed in advance, but she had multiple versions of it on hand, and chose one that matched the mood and our style.
Les also handled the logistics of our unconventional venue with ease. Speakers were placed nicely for each room, and the sound quality and volume were perfect for different spaces and moments.
Overall, we couldn't be happier with how things turned out -- and we loved her energy and passion for music.

Les Talusan was an absolutely incredible DJ for our queer, nerdy wedding, and a real joy to work with. She met with us to talk over our musical taste (where as a bonus I got to geek out over British indie of the 90s and 00s), and then by magic transformed the fairly random playlists we shared with her into an incredible dancefloor alchemy that had guests of all generations and musical propensities leaping around with wild abandon! So many people came up to us to tell us how great our DJ was and how well the music reflected us and our community. Prior to working with Les, I had not fully appreciated how important the DJ is to the success of a wedding or other event – now I understand that they are the key, and I am so glad we chose who we did! Les also did a beautiful job of choosing songs to play during our meal; as we ran around and talked to everyone, it was magical to hear unexpected favorites pop up in the background.
