If you care to understand what drives any business, follow the money. What makes an independent dj like myself different is I don't need to fill 5, 10 or 20 calendars for my dj staff. Not all brides and grooms want the same thing. So using a one dj fits all approach is exactly what I'd have to do if I booked multiple guys. For me - the interview goes both ways. I want to dj weddings for couples that fit with what I do. Think about your spouse to be. I'm betting somewhere in that relationship you share similar values and have a rapport that works for you both. Well, working an event that feels like a fit is WAAAY better than "not feeling it". How do I know? Because I've been there done that. I'm 20 plus years in and my clients love what I do. I've learned along the way how to get and keep a crowds interest musically. But it came at the expense of a few events along the way wherein the client felt they new better. I'm just over believing someone knows more about it than I do. 20 plus years can do that to a guy. MY secret to having happy brides is knowing we're a fit from the start.

Quickly what I'm not:

  • I’m not some techno house DJ that spins records with his elbows.
  • I won’t pull people off their chairs to get them up — I let my music do this.
  • I don’t do this as a side job – this is a significant source of my income.
  • I won’t comment on your sexy legs or encourage the groom to use his teeth if you choose a bouquet and garter.
  • I don’t play music with obviously obscene lyrics – gangsta rap, bitches and “hoe-zzz” (don't know how to spell that one) come to mind. I'm not a saint either but nasty is nasty and it's just not my thing. I've done events with explicit many times which is why I know I don't like it.
  • I don’t have different packages or upsells – you get everything.
  • I won’t hang giant signs or banners on my table, sell glow sticks to guests or blow up vinyl guitars.
  • I won't botch names or train wreck the music.
  • I don't do weddings where a couple controls every song played. I love and encourage suggestion lists and presuming it'll keep a floor bumping with happy guests I'll use it all. But if I see a song I know to be a loser, unless it's a bride and groom favorite I'm not going to play it.
  • I'm not inflexible... the stuff above may seem contrary to that but I know how to adapt to all sorts of crowds and changes. I love playing and exploring all sorts of music - from country to techno to hip hop, rock, hillbilly, reggae, motown, jazz and more. I just won't "explore" it to the extent I'll lose a dancefloor full of people. I want people laughing, dancing and singing. I want brides and grooms that want that. PERIOD

Dan Was in Fact The Man

Picking the right DJ was extremely important for us. Our friends love to dance so we really wanted to make sure we found the right person. We talked to a few different people and Dan felt miles apart from every other DJ we spoke with. From the gun I could tell he was not only great at what he does, but also a great person. Through the coordination process he was extremely good at guiding us through and giving his expert opinion on how to optimize the event. Dan also made the reception a blast. The dance floor was full nearly the entire time and we got tons of compliments on how great he was. We will 100% be recommending Dan to any of our friends getting married!

I didn't realize the importance of a wedding DJ until I saw how much DJ Dan made the night

I'd never been to a wedding where I'd even given much thought to the DJ. But every guest I spoke with made a point to talk about how great DJ Dan was, and I agree. He was an absolute standout - he kept the dancefloor lively all night, he was a standout emcee, and he was a delight to work with. Dan is clearly a pro and from our first conversation I knew our wedding was in good hands with him. He took our wedding to the next level and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who asks me for wedding advice.

Best. DJ. Ever.

DJ Dan was nothing short of incredible. He was responsive, positive, kind, and above all he kept the dance floor full ALL night!! He was constantly making eye contact with my husband and I to make sure we were having a good time and approved of what he was playing. Music is extremely important to us and he accommodated our wide taste of different genres. He was amazing and we never had a single worry about music. He helped take so much stress off of the process and we are forever grateful for him!!

Dan from Michigan Wedding DJ is awesome, not only as a DJ but as a person! He's a super chill nice guy who knows exactly what he's doing and knows how to keep the party going. He also has that special personality type that just helps keep things from falling flat unlike some new DJs. That's not always a guarantee with DJs! I've enjoyed working with Dan and will continue to refer him to all of my clients. Book him now! You won't regret it.

We worked with Dan recently, and not only was he great at keeping the party rocking, and keeping people out on the dance floor, but he was always there to make sure we knew when things were going to take place. Timelines can shift a bit as the day goes on, and he did a great job giving us a heads up, so we knew when to be where!
