Isaac is AWESOME! Background: 118 person wedding with people from Brazil, NY, FL, CA and England. Think Italian-Brazilian and a lot of different music preferences.Sent on 07/22/2018
Our wedding was from 5pm - 12am and his energy was spot on for every moment of that. He set up the mics for our musicians friends that played for us during the ceremony. He set up the mics last minute for our officiants (our brothers, who forgot about that part). Isaac sang and played guitar during our cocktail hour. Dinner music was a mix and then we danced and danced and danced. Isaac kept us going the entire time. We gave him little instruction (songs we like, don't like, the overall vibe we wanted and to mix in international music). He was beyond wonderful. I have been to ~30 weddings or so. He appealed to everyone. So many people came up to us weeks after our wedding saying our DJ was the best they heard. We extended our wedding till midnight and Isaac went with it. He also knew how to MC our wedding and adjusted when things changed (speech was too long, or whatever). He never felt intrusive and everything just flowed so well, much it because of Isaac. Out of all of our vendors, we spent the most time on finding the right DJ (more time than our venue) and we lucked out finding Isaac since we were planning our wedding within 9 months of being engaged. Hire him. Thank you Isaac for making our day/night so much fun!!

I cannot fully express how HAPPY we are that we hired Isaac with Music in Tahoe as the DJ for our wedding reception!Sent on 08/23/2018
We had a destination wedding where absolutely no one we knew was from the Tahoe area, which meant selecting our vendors was done completely based on reviews and interviewing over the phone. From the start I felt comfortable talking with Isaac, and not like he was selling me on just another gig like I felt with some of the other interviews. He was so easy to talk to, and made sure to ask the right questions so he fully understood the type of atmosphere we wanted to create for our guests! The song list & timeline planning was a breeze, my husband and I both love a variety of music but my husband definitely wanted a period towards the end of the night of just nothing but old school hip hop etc (we’re 80’s babies here), so Isaac created the perfect mashup from our song list! He was set up & ready to go with plenty of time before the party. Once the guests arrived at the reception, he immediately started greeting them, making them feel welcome, and setting the stage for the absolute BEST party of our lives! The night stayed on schedule thanks to his direction following our timeline. He even reminded guest about visiting the photo booth and updated them on other various things throughout the night so that no one missed out! The music mashup was incredible and flowed so perfectly building up getting better & better the whole night through, and ended with the hip hop party finale my husband & I wanted, all of our favorite songs! Our dance floor was packed ALL night long, and once it was all over the only complaint we heard from our guest was that they they were having so much fun they didn’t want the party to end... and in my opinion that’s a complaint every bride wants to hat the end of her wedding day!!

Isaac and Lucas were such an important part in our special day! Talented, accommodating and professional. Felt the love for sure! Isaac went over the top and helped coordinate our group to each location, announce us and throw the best dance party ever. It was the best day of my life and I am so happy it came with an awesome soundtrack. Thank you to the moon and back. Cheers!Sent on 10/06/2017

Isaac exceeds expectations as a DJ; bringing creative custom-tailored mixes, providing fun props, and rising the energy level of the crowd --all the while radiating pure enjoyment (you can tell he has a passion for his craft). Talent and great energy to the side, Isaac is well-organized, reliable, and someone I can trust to follow the timeline and details carefully to ensure a flawless flow of wedding events. Best of both worlds with Music in Tahoe!

Isaac of Music in Tahoe is one of my favorite DJs to work with as a North Lake Tahoe photographer. He always knows what to play and can adapt to any couple. He has a great, fun energy about him but is also a true professional. I would highly recommend Music in Tahoe to any of my clients!
