    Absolutely awesome!

    The DJ at a wedding really has a lot of responsibility; to ensure the timing of each different section goes off smoothly, the music fits the crowds mood, that people know what is going on and where to be, it's a LOT to juggle! I was so nervous because I didn't hire a planner but Dave ensured that the whole night went off without a hitch!
    He played the music we liked, but also took requests from guests, he tricked the whole wedding into doing the wobble, and even jumped out and danced with us!

    I highly recommend Dave Awesome for your event! He was professional, super friendly and one of the nicest people ever, and my guests are still going on and on about him a week later!

    DJ Dave Awesome made our wedding truly awesome! We are from out of state and he went above and beyond to make us feel more than comfortable! From the second we booked with him he made sure to find out exactly what we wanted/did not want for the wedding. He is not just a DJ. He is an entertainer and now a dear friend. He tied our whole wedding together with his amazing music and personality! DJ Dave did everything he could in order to make our wedding perfect, not to mention everyone loved him! We highly recommend him!
    Thank you so much, Dave!

    DJ Dave was Awesome (pun intended)!!! He was extremely professional, organized and very easy going! Our music was flawless! We held our wedding in Florida but we are from Illinois. He made sure to not just email but to schedule class to ensure he covered every detail we wanted! My favorite part of the night was Dave getting all our guests on the dance floor and keeping them there! (He's also got some great moves home self!) I would highly recvomend DJ Dave for you Dj needs!!

    Thanks Dave!!!!!!

    Dave Awesome was just as the name implies, AWESOME! He was on time, friendly and professional! You can tell he loves his job! He even calmed my father down before the ceremony, insuring the day would be flawless. He played all the right music at all the right times and even got the whole wedding party and guests on to the dance floor dancing at once! It was an amazing experience! I would recommend Dave Awesome to a detailed bride any day! We couldn't have have pulled the day off without him!

    Dave was just amazing at our wedding reception!!!! We've used him at our Class Reunion and he always delivers a great time. He gets people up and dancing, he shows them the moves and everyone just had a great time at our wedding. I loved that he took time to get to know me and my husband and our wishes before he recommended anything. He responded right away to our questions and accommodated my special requests. I highly recommend him for any function and will continue to use him for ours as well. DAVE YOU ARE AWESOME!!! :)

    DJ Dave did a spectacular job for our wedding. We are older (early 50's) and had all ages of people attending the wedding. The music was very important to us. Dave listened to what we had discussed & was spot on the entire evening. He moved the flow of the wedding expertly, but not intrusively, and everyone danced from our 70ish parents down to the teenagers. It was a wonderful wedding & all the guests had fun. Thank you, Dave!! You're awesome!!

    DJ Dave Awesome, the name says it all. From start to finish, planning our destination wedding with Dave was a breeze. He responds to emails, texts, and calls very quickly to put us at ease. He had no problem coordinating with our photographer and our coordinator Alexandra at the Don Cesar Hotel.

    The best part about the entire night was the flow. DJ Dave easily got everyone dancing and having a great time. He catered to everyone at our wedding from 3 years old to 86 years old, every single person was on the dance floor. As someone with prior DJ experience in the past, I can honestly say that Dave is one of the best DJ's I've ever had the pleasure of working with, bar none.

    All the best,
    Alex and Madison Jandick.

    DJ Dave Awesome is, in a word, AWESOME.
    We really could not be happier with the service he provided. He was so down to earth and FUN. Which is exactly what I wanted in a DJ.
    He was also very professional. My husband and I will be recommending him to everyone we know.

    DJ Dave Awesome was absolutely amazing to work with. I couldn't be happier with how my wedding at the Don CeSar Hotel went, and Dave was a huge part of that.

    Dave was highly recommended by the hotel, and after canceling the band I originally hired, I decided to go with a DJ to appeal to our eclectic tastes in music. I called Dave and knew that I had made the right choice. He was enthusiastic, warm, personable, and very responsive to our needs. He was very easy to get a hold of and responded quickly. During our final phone meeting we nailed down the musical course of the evening, and Dave was helpful in giving honest, informed feedback. He's done many weddings and is very knowledgeable, yet also flexible and versed in multiple musical genres to cater to your own tastes. I was unsure about our first dance song because while my husband and I loved the song, my mother was not a fan. Dave encouraged met to go with my gut and pick the song that WE wanted to dance to, and I am so happy I did. Our first dance was a very special moment and one that I will remember forever, and I'm glad Dave encouraged me to make my wedding my own.

    After the first dance/father-daughter/mother-son dances were over, Dave completely got the party going. Everyone had such a blast and I could have danced all night. If you are looking for a DJ who is personable, fun, knowledgeable, and will make your party unforgettable, do yourself a favor and call Dave. I'm so glad I did. Thanks again Dave for being a part of the best night of my life. You are...AWESOME!!!!

    DJ Dave Awesome made our reception. His professionalism and enthusiasm had everybody happy and moving the entire night. He was a blast to talk to on the phone and go over everything plan wise. He had a ton of great ideas to keep the crowd moving and keep them guessing so that they were never bored. He helped keep us on track timewise. We gave him timeline control for the reception since he knew exactly what he was doing and it would make it easier. He was out on the floor dancing and talking with everybody. He really kept the party going. Afterwards everybody kept asking who he was since he was so amazing.

    We gave him a general guideline for music selection and he ran with it. Kept the music flowing so that everything went smoothly and didn't go stagnant. He kept checking in with us to make sure we didn't need more time to chat with the crowd.

    If I ever need a DJ for anything again or if my friends ask I'll only recommend DJ Dave Awesome. Best value for the money. No upselling on extra speakers or lighting. If you need lighting he has a great suggestion for you that is cheap and easy to use.. He even says he's a horrible sales guy on the phone. It's very no pressure. Very easy to call and text with questions and music requests at any hour.

    LIke I said he made the reception. He is 100% the man for your music needs.

    The most frequent comment that my husband and I hear about our wedding is that it was so much FUN!! We know it was completely due to the incredible DJ Dave Awesome :) He really went above and beyond what we expected..he came early and set up and even assisted with some "day of" stuff that we were working on. It went a long way in helping me not stress out! He did a great job with our ceremony music even though we were on a windy beach, which I was worried about. We didn't give the music a second thought after that because he had walked us through everything from the ceremony seating music to the last dance the week before. However, the most amazing thing that Dave did was to get Uncle Mario (who NEVER dances) out on the dance floor for an entire song! He was even smiling. I can honestly say that from beginning to end there were always people dancing, toasting or laughing and he ran the whole thing so smoothly. I would recommend Dave for anyone who wants a fun, high energy DJ who really cares about making your day perfect...he's the best!

    Dave is friendly, enthusiastic, and takes every detail very seriously (while not taking himself to seriously) Prior to the wedding he asked us many questions we didn't even realize needed to be settled ahead of time. And he always responded to my wife or myself in a timely fashion. My wife created a list of songs that were not "traditional" wedding reception-like songs, and Dave had them all prepared and ready to go. We couldn't be happier, great DJ! -Al and Kelly Brodeur

    DJ Dave Awesome has his name for a reason. He IS AWESOME. Our guests all commented on how great the DJ was. Not only was he personally fun and easy to work with, but he kept our guests "involved" on the dance floor not knowing that they were even participating in group dances. (ingenious) He had great showmanship presence without "stealing the show". If you are looking for DJ for your special day, you can not go wrong with DJ Dave Awesome. :)

    DJ Dave is..you guessed it...AWESOME! He was great we had a great time. I have conservative family so I knew half of the wedding guests wouldn't dance, but that's okay. He played everything we requested. The only issue I had was small. We did the garter toss and the bouquet toss. My dear husband really wanted it and so I complied. Instead of the male putting the garter on the female's leg, I decided we'll change it up and have the female put it over the male's pants leg - to accommodate to my very conservative family. Well, DJ Dave mentioned that if you use your teeth it would be 10 years extra luck! Needless to say, that part of the wedding went from conservative to very raunchy.

    I didn't think to mentioned this to Dave, so he wouldn't have known. I just didn't realize there was a 10 year extra luck if you used your teeth so I too wouldn't have known to tell him not to mention the teeth. Anyways, overall we had a great time and we totally recommend DJ Dave to anyone who needs a DJ.

    I can't begin to tell you how awesome Dave really is. He made us feel so comfortable during the planning phase of our wedding and took some pressure off of us as well. He was VERY flexible with us, and worked with us to fit our budget. He was very through as well when we were planning and knew exactly what should be played and when. He also knew our favorite bands and played a few extra bonus songs for us. We really didn't want the night to end. One of the biggest things we wanted was a DJ that can get EVERYONE out on the dance floor and he did just that. You will have absolutely NO regrets if you choose Dave as your DJ. If we ever have another function/event and we need a DJ, he would be the first I call. Thanks so much for the memories Dave!!

    Dj Dave Awesome isn't just a DJ, he is an entire party. The wedding was more than what we dreamed of, thanks to DJ Dave! From our parents to our younger family members everybody was floored by the amazing and awesome display of mixes and music DJ Dave was able to provide.

    It was a nightmare trying to find a professional DJ, that was also affordable, and willing to work with us. When we found DJ Dave Awesome, I was so relieved. He was so friendly, and played a lot of the songs I wanted. He took many requests as well, and we were dancing all night. It was a great time! He can get people who NEVER dance, out on the floor. He really is awesome.

    DJ Dave was truly awesome for our son's wedding. His humor and good nature kept the reception moving and the dance floor full all evening. He tailored the evening to our guests, even to the point that, when most of the guys were called out for cigars, he kept the party going with "All the Single Ladies."
    Highest recommendation.

    We could not have asked for a better DJ for our reception. From our first consultation, through the last dance of the night, Dave helped us every step of the way. He walked us through everything ahead of time, catered to our musical whims, made us and our guests feel comfortable and got everyone involved (even those that don't dance), and was an excellent master of ceremonies.

    A month later, our guests are still talking about how awesome Dave was.
