Perfect Wedding DJ

The Perfect Wedding DJ! You’ll be in the best hands for your wedding. My wife and I did a fusion wedding in May 2022 with music from a variety of cultures. To this day, our family and friends have told us that the dance floor was the best they have ever experienced. Truly not a single person left the dance floor until our wedding ended!

Tristan is professional, flexible and was able to masterfully transition between songs in our complex wedding itinerary. He was flexible in establishing a communication pattern that worked for us and we were in contact up and until the wedding day. It was also great that he came fully prepared with his own equipment and it was a life saver since we never planned for microphones! A true artist in his own right and guests were impressed that he took song requests from a different culture all together since he came prepared.

If you want to have a great wedding with lots of fun and memorable experiences then you have to book Tristan!

Very Professional and Flexible

Modern Music Box, especially Tristan and Pablo, was exceptional! We hired them as DJ and Emcee for our wedding and they delivered all that we agreed for and they were even very flexible with all our last minute changes. They are very professional and well knowledgeable with different cultural needs. Their presence made everyone energized and dancing! Their 360 photobooth and karaoke offerings are also a hit! Highly recommended for all your event hosting and DJ'ing needs!

Book this DJ!

Tristan was AWESOME! We told him exactly what we wanted at our wedding in terms of music and he executed it perfectly. Keep the dancefloor full and really turned up the heat for the after party. The music was so good we had double the people we expected attend the after party!

Owner/DJ

Tristan (DJ 9-Volt) always gets a little extra excited when he gets to spin a Filipino wedding, mostly because he knows line dances like The Wobble and The Cupid Shuffle will be fair game. (He’s both Filipino and a sucker for a line dance.)

By day, Tristan is an IT Project Manager and a proud graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Tristan is our resident road warrior, traveling as far as the Philippines and Sevilla, Spain—which was his fave gig to DJ, not only was the groom a close friend, but the location provided the perfect backdrop to propose to his wife, Megan.

Tristan loves spinning weddings, but he’s had some pretty cool opportunities to spin for parties hosted by Food Network stars like Giada De Laurentis, Jet Tila, Duff Goldman, Anne Burrell and Christina Tosi as part of the Food Network Wine and Food Festival. He’s spun for non-profit organizations like APIA Vote at the 2016 DNC in Philadelphia and at the Ascend National Conference in DC. He has opened for DJ Ruckus and Rev Run. And he’s spun VIP parties for Bruno Mars, The Who, Marc Anthony, Coldplay, and the Washington Commanders

If given a choice, Tristan will default to a mix of 90’s Hip Hop and R&B, but with a resume like his, you can be sure that he’ll bring the right mix of music for you and your guests.

In his spare time, Tristan loves to read comic books—Marvel over DC, Avengers over Justice League, X-Men above all else—and uses his long drives traveling for gigs to listen to real books on Audible.
