One of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Isaac knows how to make a crowd DANCE
Our wedding was the best party of our life, and we owe much of that to Isaac! He was so great to work with, professional and chill and knew how to organize our random favorites into an amazing night that had everyone on the dance floor. He knew how to read a crowd really well, and could expertly tell what the crowd wanted. We had the time of our life and couldn't be more grateful for Isaac's expertise, ability to listen to our needs, and high energy. We'd hire him again in a second! Thanks again!Sent on 06/07/2020

I LOVED having Isaac as the DJ
I am a speaker and have 13 years experience with over 100,000 people.Sent on 05/27/2019
I was INCREDIBLY impressed by Isaac.
The sound was perfect and my favorite thing was how aware of everyones energy.
In a speakers world you say "Read your room". If people aren't with you, you change what you are doing. Some DJ's will stick to their plan. But Isaac was a master.
If the energy was low he changed to a more upbeat song the song. If we were out of breath he slowed it down.
Everyone had a blast, and my favorite part, was I could hear the ENTIRE WEDDING CEREMONY easily!!!
I know it sounds simple but I have been to many wedding where I could barely hear anything.
I would hire him for my wedding in the future and recommend him to anyone!
Music in Tahoe's reply:Thank you Jennifer, your words mean the world to us! We're so glad you enjoyed yourself and thank you for taking the time to write us such a great review. Coming from someone with your background it means a lot! We love what we do and are so grateful that that translated into your experience. Thanks again and best from the Music in Tahoe team!

We highly recommend Isaac and Drop Theory for any wedding!
Isaac was so amazing!! He was very professional and enthusiastic about creating a memorable and wonderful experience for us!! He met with us multiple times to work on logistics about our wedding venue, which was High Camp at Squaw Valley. He was very confident with his speaker and lighting system but he wanted to make sure that he would have everything that he needed to make the music magic happen at our wedding!! Not only did he have to set up speakers and microphones for the ceremony but he also had to figure out how to set up a DJ stand and speakers at the roller skating rink, yes we had roller skating at our wedding!! Not only is Isaac an incredible audio visual guy, but he is also an amazing DJ and he made sure the tunes were rolling for us on the roller skating rink!! After roller skating and dinner, Isaac and Drop Theory rocked us out on the dance floor!!! Their music selection was impeccable and everyone was out on the dance floor getting their groove on! We highly recommend Isaac and Drop Theory for anyone who is looking for a professional and wonderful band! We are so happy that we chose them, they made our special day so much more memorable!!Sent on 10/26/2019
Music in Tahoe's reply:Thank you Jamie! It was our honor to handle the music at your unbelievable High Camp wedding, from ceremony to late night dance party, your wedding rocked! Thanks again for having us!
