Ryan is the best!

We had Ryan for our June wedding at La Valencia, and he was AWESOME! We cannot say enough great things about him!

We don’t live in the San Diego area, so we did not get a chance to meet him in person prior to the wedding. But we listened to a ton of his music online and we are now lifelong fans of Ryan Hiller!

He performed live for our ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner, DJed for the reception, and emceed the entire night! His voice and guitar skills are amazing… have a listen for yourself on his websites and YouTube.

Even more so than his exceptional musical talent, was his energy! We had a small wedding of about 40 people, which could easily get dull quick. But he kept the vibe alive all night long! We had a couple conversations with him prior to the wedding but gave him minimal direction on the music itinerary.
We simply asked him to bring the fun! He delivered the FUN above and beyond! Ryan was so awesome at reading the room, adjusting to the vibe, and playing songs that appealed to the entire group. From the 11-year-old boys to the 84-year-old grandmas, he had nearly everyone on the dance floor the entire night! Many guests (including myself) complained of being sore the next day from dancing so much!

All brides have different aspects of their wedding that are more meaningful to them than others… the flowers, the dress, the photos, etc. For us, the priority was the music for a fun dance party and Ryan provided that beyond our expectations. Since the big day our guests keep asking us for a redo in the near future because they had so much fun! Ryan truly made the entire night A BLAST for EVERYONE. We cannot thank him enough for making our wedding day what we had always hoped it would be and much more!

Ryan...I can't even begin!

Ryan and SoCal Wedding Music...I can't even begin! There are so many amazing things I can say about Ryan and his musical talents. Lets just begin with his go-with-the-flow demeanor, impecatable style, "dance until the sun comes up" DJ style, and his person touch on each and every event. Plus, if you hire him to also play live either for ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or during his DJ set...your guests will remember your event for decades to come! SO, all in all...book him! -Happileigh Hosted Events (Lauren)

Ryan is the BEST!

Ryan Hiller is hands down the best of the best when it comes to his craft. He is a superb musician and truly an even better person. My wife and I are so appreciative and grateful for the sharing of his talents and energy on our special day. Working with Ryan was easy and you will recognize immediately that you are dealing with a true professional. Ryan performed live for our wedding and then emceed for the reception...six straight hours of pure perfection. We would recommend hiring Ryan Hiller to perform at your upcoming wedding. Your guests will thank you!

Okay, this is serious! Ryan Hiller, with SoCal Wedding Music is amazing! Not your typical run of the mill version of amazing but the, wait, stop the press, you will be blown away, amazing. As a wedding planner I work with tons of DJs and musicians and Ryan is something special. How so much talent can be wrapped into one person is beyond me, but we absolutely love working with him. It takes a special kind of person to be a wedding DJ, because you have to be able to read the crowd, make changes at the client's whim, and leave your ego out. Ryan is fantastic at this, as well as building rapport clients. In addition, he is phenomenal musician! He is a beautiful singer/songwriter, but can also wonderfully cover almost any song. With hundreds of songs already in his repertoire,he is happy to learn new ones for you as an addition to your package. You can check out his skills online or at a live show before you book; which is a great bonus. If you are looking for a musician, a wedding DJ, or both; You can stop looking, you have found the one and only Ryan Hiller and SoCal Wedding Music!!
