Darin Is a Real Value Add
Darin is a consummate professional. He is knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. His focus is on making the experience as good as it can be. He will offer advice if asked but is perfectly happy to accommodate any requests and direction he receives. He works collaboratively with the other vendors--officiant, wedding planner, lighting, etc.Sent on 09/29/2019
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Really enjoyed your special day at Salamander. Thank you for the kind words and congratulations to you all! Such a special wedding memory! All the best. Darin
Tashina Harris · Married on 09/13/2019
Darin was just great. He was very easy to work with and really cared about making the experience our own. I appreciated the time he spent ensuring that our playlist got worked into the night and was flexible with changes as they arose. He commits himself to the event in full, even being the one to hold doors for me and find my dinner when I got a moment to eat. We appreciated his attention to detail, such as triple checking name pronunciations and making sure we were introduced just as we wanted to be. Finally, he was the perfect balance of involved without taking over or dominating the night. People did not stop dancing the whole reception, and we truly had an amazing time. Thank you, Darin!Sent on 09/15/2019
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Tashina - thank you for the kind remarks!!! I'm so glad you had a "day to remember"! It was really fun and was very happy to be part of your amazing day! Cheers to you both - Congratulations!!! Darin

Darin was great!
Honestly, Darin made the entire process of planning the ceremony and reception so incredibly easy. He went above and beyond providing dj services - he also helped us map every moment of our special day. The music was great all night, and we had a blast working with him!Sent on 05/11/2019
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Such a fun day Isabelle!!! Thank you for having me and for the kind review! Congratulations to you both and hope to see you around!!! Darin
Kate · Married on 06/08/2019
We were absolutely blown away by Darin’s taste in music, professionalism, and experience. Every song he played was right on point – from the pre-ceremony music to the dance floor. After our first conversation with Darin, we knew he would be the perfect fit for our wedding. He understood our vision and truly brought it to life!Sent on 07/01/2019
Not only did Darin play great music, but he also did a phenomenal job communicating with our different vendors to make sure every piece of our special day went smoothly. From coordinating with the officiant, to our venue coordinator, and the photographer, Darin played a key role in setting the perfect pace for the evening. He even helped to make sure our photographer was able to snap a few large group photos on the dance floor!
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Thank you Kate!!! It was such a fun day and really appreciated the opportunity to provide DJ/MC support for your wedding event. Very kind of you to submit a testimonial - THANK YOU! Hope to see you around at some of my other DJ gigs! :) All the best and congratulations again!

Perfect DJ for our day
Darin did an amazing job at our wedding at the American horticultural society in Alexandria, VA. Not only did he play great music that everyone danced to the whole night but he assisted with the toasts and made sure they went well.Sent on 06/15/2019
Before the day Darin was great at communicating with my husband and I and greatly assisted with the planning for the day. Very professional. Would definitely recommend.
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Thank you Madison!!!! Really appreciated the opportunity and congratulations to you both! Cheers to the newlyweds!

We had a blast!
Darin helped create another great dance party! We picked Darin for our DJ after we enjoyed him so much from my sister's wedding. He was professional, very responsive and helped keep the dance floor packed from beginning to end. Thank you so much for such a fun filled night!Sent on 06/03/2019

Laura Saporito · Married on 03/23/2019
Darin came highly recommended by our wedding reception venue- the Carlyle Club. Upon reaching out, I was impressed with his background and his music preferences (I too am a fan of the 80s haha). Every time we exchanged emails or spoke on the phone, I was pleased with his professionalism and attention to detail. His planning document definitely helped us feel prepared for the day-of and like we were all on the same page. He rocked our wedding day, MCing all the important announcements and playing songs every guest loved!Sent on 04/01/2019
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Hey they Gilmore crew! You guys were an amazing couple to work with and it was a great celebration!!! I can't thank you enough for having me and it was a great honor being there to DJ/MC your special day! Hope to see you at an 80's show soon.... Congratulations again! Darin

Music made simple
Darin made the reception planning simple and organized. His attention to detail allowed for a seamless flow of music throughout the reception and extremely happy guests! His presence was very much in the background, making sure that the night flowed from the entrance, to the toasts, to the cake, dances, etc... there was never a dull moment! He was also receptive to all ideas and super easy to work with. Highly recommend for your event!Sent on 01/25/2019
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Nicholle - thank you so much for the kind review! Your New Years Eve wedding event was super fun and it was an honor to be part of the celebration!!! Wish you both all the best!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Darin
Rebecca · Married on 10/27/2018
Keeps the party going!
Darin was amazing! He is professional, attentive, and really knows how to get a crowd dancing. We requested a mixture of classic favorites and modern hits, and to end the night with 90s songs. Darin totally delivered and the dance floor was packed all night long!Sent on 01/01/2019
Darin's attention to detail is unparalleled--he has a full "run of show" document that he has couples complete and works with your planner/coordinator to make sure their timelines are aligned. He is happy to work with you if you have specific songs you want to hear (or don't want to hear)--but he'll also pull it all together if you're more hands off. Darin does a great job of giving guests a heads up when things are happening (transitioning from cocktails to dinner, the cake cutting, etc.) in a way that doesn't feel awkward or interrupt the flow. For the quality of services you get, he's also affordable relative to other DJs in the area.
As an added bonus--he's the nicest guy! I told our 6-year-old nephew he could choose the first song of the night to get people dancing, and Darin let him press "play" on his equipment. Our nephew was super pumped and it's a moment he'll always remember!
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Rebecca - Wow, you are so kind! Thank you for the incredible opportunity to be present and provide DJ/MC services for your special day! It truly was an honor and I'm so very happy for you both! (LOVED your Christmas card, too!!!) Thank you again and hope to see sometime again soon!!! All the best! Darin
Andrew · Married on 10/06/2018
He kept the night moving
Darin did a great job mixing our varied musical tastes, it was seamless. He played classic jazz standards for the reception, Latin and 80's New Wave for the dancing, and sprinkled in a couple of ethnic dance songs to boot. He kept the dance floor packed! We got so many complements on the music. The best part about it was how organized Darin was, he made it simple for us.Sent on 10/23/2018
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Andrew - thank you so much for the kind words! It definitely was a great night and I'm glad everyone was happy with how things unfolded. You and Tatiana were so much fun and great to work with....thank you! Congratulations again and hope to see you soon!!! Maybe a 70's or 80's night at Jammin Java? :) All the best!!! Darin
Sophia · Married on 08/25/2018
DARIN IS AMAZING!!! During the wedding planning process, I was extremely worried about finding the right DJ for our wedding. I am so glad the venue recommended him! From the beginning, Darin was professional and patient with us. We had no clue what we were doing but he made sure to consistently reach out to us to check on our progress with picking out the songs we wanted for our wedding. From the ceremony to the reception, everything transitioned seamlessly and the music WAS ON POINT. He had everyone out on the dance floor and knew exactly what songs to play for the crowd! Our guests had a blast and it was all thanks to Darin! I couldn't have imagined my wedding day with any other DJ. If anyone is looking for a DJ, LOOK NO FURTHER, book Darin!Sent on 10/02/2018
Belt it Out Productions's reply:You both were so much fun and a pleasure to work with....thank you!!! Definitely an amazing night and a lively crowd! Congrats again on your special day!!! Darin
Kathleen · Married on 07/14/2018
I was planning my son's wedding from out-of-state and Darin made it so easy!! He arranged his schedule to meet with us when we were in town to discuss details and was very attentive via email when the rest of arrangements needed to be done long distance. Darin kept in touch with us during the entire planning process. Wedding day was awesome thanks to Darin being the master of ceremonies....keeping everyone on time and having fun. If my other kids get married in the VA area, Darin would be my first call!! Very reasonably priced for all that he does!Sent on 07/18/2018
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Thank you Kathleen for the kind remarks. Was honored to be part of your family's special day! Thank you again for the opportunity and I'm so glad you were pleased with how the day unfolded. All the best! Darin
Anna · Married on 06/02/2018
Darin was incredibly detailed and helpful throughout the whole process. From beginning to end, he made sure that everything was just right! The reception went smoothly, all thanks to Darin. Even though we had a few day-of changes, we had no trouble. Darin made sure to let guests know when the important things were about to happen, pronounced everyone's names correctly, and kept the dance floor PACKED. When you book with Darin, you won't be disappointed.Sent on 06/22/2018
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Thanks Anna!!!! Such a fun day and very honored that you selected me to DJ/MC your special day! All the best and please stay in touch! Good luck in CA! We will all miss you!!!

We used Darin from Belt it Out Productions for the music during our reception. Darin was very responsive and even sent a list of song suggestions to get us started. The evening went smoothly due to Darin's attention to detail and he kept us on task throughout the night and kept the events moving along. We thought he was very professional and would definitely use him again in the future!Sent on 06/04/2018

Amanda · Married on 12/17/2017
Darin help make my wedding planning as stress free as possible. He was so prepared and knew so much about weddings that I didn't even think of. A couple days before the wedding we had a phone call meeting to go over the entire event and the flow of the wedding. The wedding ceremony and reception went off seamlessly. Darin worked with the event planner and all of the events stayed on schedule. His music was exactly what I wanted, considering we had a huge age range of guests. He played popular songs that lasts through generations and really got the party started.Sent on 12/30/2017
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Amanda, congratulations again on your special day and thanks for the great review! Your event was so much fun and I had honored to play a part! Wish you much happiness and success!!!! Congrats again!!!! Darin

Ana Maria · Married on 10/07/2017
Darin was absolutely delightful to work with. He accommodated all our requests, played excellent music for every single portion of our wedding (ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner) and had the dance floor packed for the entire time. We had people from Colombia, other latin countries and the US at the party and he played music that made everyone happy. We would absolutely recommend and hire him again for future celebrations.Sent on 10/16/2017

Darin at Belt it Out Productions made our wedding receiption so much fun and right on time! Darin was so organized, but laid back and fun that it made planning with him effortless. He had great suggestions and could read the crowd! I want to have another event just to use him again. Thank you Darin!Sent on 11/18/2017

Chris · Married on 09/23/2017
Darin was fantastic, in all respects. His knowledge of how to run a wedding celebration was impressive. We had no idea how many details were involved. He guided us through the whole planning process, and then his execution at the event was perfect. Finally, he was fun to work with! We highly recommend Darin for any occasion.Sent on 12/01/2017
Belt it Out Productions's reply:It was so much fun! Thanks to both you and Kim for having me DJ/MC your special wedding celebration event! You both were awesome through the process and it was an honor being there and sharing all the fun times! Congratulations again and please stay in touch! Darin
Dave · Married on 09/03/2017
My wife and I could not have been happier with Belt it Out Productions’ services. Darin was professional and punctual. His music selection was perfect – the dance floor was packed the entire night.Sent on 10/14/2017
Darin was very easy to work with, right from the very outset of our planning process. He had us fill out a questionnaire that helped him develop a flow of events; at no point was he pushy, only asked thoughtful questions that helped us build a great program events. As a DJ, we couldn’t have asked for better music. He did a great job mixing up the music and getting people to stay on the dance floor – he always seemed to know the right song to play next. What he played was exactly what we wanted, yet it was always something that felt fresh and exciting.
When you book Darin, you also get a timekeeper. He kept us on track with all of the reception-related events (dinner, first dance, toasts, etc.). Without him, we would have most certainly gotten off-track and would not have enjoyed ourselves as much as we did. That said, at no point did we feel stressed or as if we were being pushed to hurry things along. We’d strongly recommend Belt it Out for weddings or other events for which you need a DJ/MC.
Belt it Out Productions's reply:Thanks so much for the review! Totally honored to have been selected to DJ your wedding event! Cheers to you both!!! Darin
Jill · Married on 06/24/2017
I cared most about the music at the wedding so finding the right DJ was very important. Right from the start Darin was extremely helpful. He sent us a bunch of wedding playlists to help us get an idea of what we wanted for our day. He spoke with us a few times over the phone leading up to our wedding and did exactly as we asked for our important day. Darin showed up early and had everything ready to go before our guests arrived. He is friendly and professional and I would highly recommend him!Sent on 07/11/2017

Amanda · Married on 05/27/2017
Darin was fantastic to work with! He was professional, responsive, and willing to handle any special requests. We wanted to introduce wedding party members individually with 30 second clips of songs for each. Darin handled this with no issue, and even played Korean and international music at our request! He had great energy during our reception and was excellent at reading the mood of the crowd and getting people to dance with his music selections! We were so pleased to have worked with him on our big day :DSent on 05/30/2017
