Easiest Wedding EVER

Dara and Doug were so helpful especially during the pandemic. They helped us make decisions that I would never would have thought of. So much fun to work with and they knew exactly what they were doing. They helped me and my husband put in little surprises for our guests and kept everything moving. It was the most fun I have ever had and I would choose them again in a heart beat.

Best DJ’s ever!!

Doug and Dara are THE dream team! I literally cannot explain how amazing they were to my now husband and I! They treated us like family, listened to us, incorporated everything we wanted, helped coordinate our entire day!! The music was amazing, and they make an incredible team! Our wedding would not have been the same without the two of them! If you need an amazing DJ that will go above and beyond and make sure everything is ready to go and sounds great...Doug and Dara are the way to go! Music on the Move is incredible and I couldn't have asked for more!
