Brings the party!
DJs can make or break a wedding and Chad made our evening perfect! The outdoor ceremony sound and setup had no issues and guests could hear everything clearly. The cocktail hour/dinner music wasn’t overpowering and created a nice ambiance. Chad worked well with our wedding coordinator and kept the evening on schedule and running smoothly. When it was time for dancing, Chad brought the fun! Our dance floor stayed crowded until the end of the night. Chad was a great partner throughout the wedding process and helped us create a plan for the ceremony and reception. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a knowledgeable DJ who can read a room well!Sent on 12/21/2019

Awesome Wedding DJ
Chad did an awesome job as the DJ at our wedding. He helped with the ceremony and reception, and everything was flawless. All of our guests were on the dance floor the whole night! It was an absolute blast. He was also super easy to work with, and very professional. Highly recommend.Sent on 08/24/2019

Awesome wedding beats
I'll be the first to admit I was very anal when hiring a wedding DJ. I didn't want to be trapped with someone playing cheesy music and outdated songs, or someone that lingered on a certain decade of music. I also needed someone who was willing and had experience playing global music as my now husband is Brazilian and my family is Iranian.Sent on 05/19/2019
Well, Chad fit the bill 100%. He was very open-minded about playing different types of music and had EVERYONE on the dance floor. He played everything we wanted, and didn't play everything we didn't want! All of our friends and family had a blast dancing the night away.
We're so glad we went with the Local DJ!! Thank you Chad!!!
The Local DJ's reply:Thanks, Nina. It really was a super fun night, and your guests were so great to bear with my getting my feet wet with Brazilian and Persian music. I loved every minute!
Chad is a great DJ, and my clients love working with him! He is NOT a cheesy wedding DJ. Chad gets all the song info he needs from the couple and builds a playlist around their tastes, and he as a great presence on the mic without inserting himself into their day. The dance floor has been packed at the weddings I've worked with Chad, which is always a great sign!
