    Hire this DJ!

    Where to even start? We had seen and heard reviews that Derek was an incredible DJ and Emcee, but he far exceeded our expectations. He was a joy to work with and created the perfect dance experience. One of our priorities for the evening was to have an absolute banger - everyone we talked to after the wedding could not stop raving about the dance floor. We asked for him to bring the noise, and he did not disappoint! Highly recommended.

    10/10 recommend

    Nailed my wedding music vision! Derek was excellent from start to finish! Had the dance floor going all night long and did a phenomenal job. Definitely would recommend to any bride or groom out there looking for a dj!

Derek is awesome at what he does, and he will keep the party going all night. You can tell the time and care he puts into each event. At our last wedding I couldn't stop singing or dancing along myself and I'm the wedding photographer :)
