Highly experienced and professional DJ
DJ Dayve was Exceptional! He was so easy to work with and was with us every step of the way. He was very professional in the way he presents and carries himself. From the hiring process, small wedding details, selecting music and the wedding itself; it all went so smoothly and seamlessly I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ. He asked a lot of questions to try and understand our vision and what we were looking for on our big day and executed wonderfully. DJ Dayve is someone you can trust to make your special day even more memorable. Highly Recommended!!! Thank You DJ DayveSent on 11/15/2019

Best dj ever! 1/4/20
Hiring DJ Dayve for our wedding was hands-down one of the best decisions we have ever made! From helping us through the planning process, to bringing the energy from start to finish on our wedding day, there wasn't a part of our wedding that was overlooked. DJ Dayve made everyone feel so comfortable and made sure everyone had a great time! His attention to detail and creativity for our playlists kept the energy going from the ceremony to cocktail hour, through extended time at our reception. We highly recommend DJ Dayve for anyone planning a wedding or event. Thank you Dayve for making our wedding so memorable!Sent on 01/10/2020

DJ Dayve is the best in the game!
DJ Dayve made our wedding a night we will always remember! Not only was he the most organized out of all of our vendors, but he made our night a freaking PARTY! He also made sure our that our whole night ran seamlessly and on time. Our experience was nothing short of PERFECT! DJ Dayve had everyone on the dance floor the whole night, I mean THE WHOLE NIGHT we had to literally drag people off the dance floor at the end of the night to do our sparkler send off. I even tried to keep him an extra hour (which he was on board with), but unfortunately the venue couldn’t make it happen. His setup was also spectacular - from the up-lights to the white dj booth I mean everything was on point! Every one of our guests came up to us after the wedding or in the days following raving about how incredible DJ Dayve was. All my other vendors decided to add DJ Dayve to their preferred vendor list because they loved him just as much as we did. Hands down DJ Dayve is the way to go, you’ll be in for a night you’ll forever cherish!Sent on 03/13/2020
DJ Dayve's reply:Thank you so much for these words, Cheryl!!! Loved being a part of every minute of it, and loved working with you and Brandon!

Best of the Best!
Dave was fantastic in every aspect! There is no question why he is rated the best DJ in SWFL. We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a DJ.Sent on 01/24/2020
Dave’s organization and understanding of how the wedding should flow made our planning process so much easier and less stressful. Dave provided excel templates covering every detail within the wedding celebration which eliminated any uncertainty or confusion on our end. With these templates, Dave walked us through each part, step by step, exemplifying great communication skills and flexibility to work and design the layout that we wanted.
In regards to selecting our music, we had specific songs that we wanted to hear and Dave helped us with the grey areas where we were unsure of. Dave has a wealth of knowledge in all kinds of music and different genres, and was completely in-sync with the style that we wanted. The final product couldn’t have been any better. The music for our wedding was simply perfect.
Not only is Dave a great organizer and manager, but he is a fantastic performer! He absolutely exceeded all expectations here (and ours were very high!) Every single one of our friends and family raved about how awesome Dave was. At the end of the night, everyone was chanting “encore”! Dave obliged happily. Seeing that the party was not going to end, the father of the bride extended the music for another hour, and Dave truly made our night special.
Dave, for all of your hard work, we cannot thank you enough! We wish you all of the best in your future endeavors.

DJ Dayve's reply:Ali and Jake! Thank you so much for your words here. I loved being a part of your day all the way until the very, very, very end :) Can't wait to see where life takes the two of you (and Carson!) from here!

DJ Dayve helped to create our dream wedding. His fun personality was infectious, and he was so well-prepared! Nearly all of our wedding guests commented the next day about how incredible the playlist was and how there wasn’t a single song not worth dancing to. Dayve made it so easy throughout the planning process and was a joy to work with! We wish we could have him DJ our daily lives!Sent on 01/21/2020

Best DJ in Southwest FL
DJ Dayve is a class act and a great guy/DJ to work with! From the music selection, to the day of organization, he truly is everything you can ask for in a DJ. We couldn’t have been happier picking DJ Dayve to orchestrate our big day. Thanks again Dave!Sent on 03/08/2020

Dayve is amazing
Dj Dayve went above and beyond throughout our entire wedding process. He has created his own system/timeline to work with you on your wedding playlists and and his communication is unparalleled, something we truly value. We hired Dayve for ceremony, reception, uplighting, emcee and basically everything and anything he does! He created a custom mix for my fun father/daughter dance that was a combination of 5 songs. He also worked with a company we hired called CrowdSync that created custom light up wrist bands that syncs with him DJ’ing. Dayve even surprised us by showing up to our rehearsal to guarantee things went off without a hitch. Dayve was extremely professional and just overall and extraordinary person to work with.Sent on 04/02/2020

Look no further, DJ Dayve is your wedding DJ! Dayve is a high school classmate of my husband and when we started our wedding planning process, there was no question that we should hire Dayve. He made our wedding everything and more!Sent on 07/12/2020

DJ Dayve was the DJ for my mom's wedding this past weekend at the Naples Grande. I have attended and worked over 50 weddings and DJ Dayve was by far the best wedding DJ that I have ever worked with.Sent on 04/17/2017
Throughout the entire planning process he went above and beyond with multiple conference calls, to-do lists, meetings, excel spreadsheets with playlists for each portion of the night, and instantaneous responses. On the day of the wedding he was the first vendor at the venue (Naples Grande), arriving 5 hours before the ceremony!
When he first arrived we went through the entire timeline one more time to make sure that we were both on the same page, and we were! The set up was amazing with professional DJ booth, trusses, and up lighting.
Once the wedding started the professionalism continued. He spoke very eloquently. Most importantly, he kept my mom's wedding guests on the dance floor the entire night with classic & new hits that catered to our guests! Additionally, if he noticed that all of the guests weren't dancing to a certain song he would make a smooth transition into the next show stopper.
Do yourself a favor and hire DJ Dayve for your big day, you WON'T regret it! A true class act! Thanks again for everything. :)
DJ Dayve's reply:Thanks so much for these words, Nicole! See you soon in DC :)

DJ Dayve is the best!
DJ Dayve was incredible!! The dance floor was packed all night long, just how I always pictured my wedding day. Numerous guests went out of their way to tell us how great Dayve was and how much fun they had dancing - including my 94-year-old grandfather! He knows how to pick the perfect songs for the moment and the crowd. During the months leading up to the wedding, he helped us think of songs for the wedding party intro, last dance, and all the other little details we hadn’t even thought of. He was always very organized and friendly which made the process even easier for us. A wedding is only as good as the DJ, and ours was the absolute BEST because of DJ Dayve!Sent on 11/05/2019

Amazing! Made all my dreams a reality!
WOW!That is all I can say!My husband and I were nervous and anxious about working with a DJ we never met in person and didn't know anything about!We found DJ Dayve on several wedding websites stating that he was the BEST in Tampa area. We told him from day 1 that he was the 3rd most important person at the wedding after myself and the groom.Our friends and family love to party and dance and we told him he was the party starter!I can't tell you how many times the night of the wedding I was told by several people that they have NEVER been to a wedding where EVERYONE was up dancing.DJ Dayve had my 80 year old grandparents breaking it down on the dance floor!DJ Dayve OUTDID himself! It was beyond what I would have ever imagined.The facetimes and emails were comforting and made everything go smooth!I cant put into words how outstanding DJ Dayve made the night- we are almost coming up on a month after the wedding and people are still talking about how it was the best wedding they had ever been to!He also let me help DJ in the DJ booth! Which made for amazing photos!
Thank you for everything Dayve!You truly made the night magical!Love ,Chelsea and Wesley EstesSent on 12/27/2019

We chose Dj Dayve not knowing too much but what was on his website. And let’s say we loved what we saw! We love how he plans and will make it an amazing event! We had two video. Calls to double check all the music we wanted and what we didn’t want played. He had a sheet for every occasion and made sure you did not have to worry the day of. He was the best dj and We loved having him for our wedding. We would HIGHLY recommend him. He is talented and will play what you want. We were very happy on our wedding day!Sent on 11/11/2019

DJ Dayve was absolutely incredible! From the moment we booked him, we felt comfortable and at ease. He communicated the planning process and was honest and easy to talk to during our many video calls and emails. He had spreadsheets for each part of the day and was organized and clear with what to expect. When we were stuck, he gave us great recommendations for songs for cake cutting, entrances, exits, etc. He was flexible with changes and helped me create the perfect dance with my dad by combining our special and meaningful songs. He even came to our rehearsal and worked with our other vendors/musicians to make sure the ceremony was everything we wanted (and it was!). At our reception, he kept everything moving smoothly and it felt so natural. Our friends and family keep RAVING about DJ Dayve and the party that he put on! Our guest were all different ages - kids, college students, parents and grandparents and they all loved every minute. We would recommend him every time.Thank you for making our day everything we wanted and more!Sent on 07/10/2019

Love DJ Dayve and Cannot Recommend Enough!
DJ Dayve was AWESOME! From the very beginning, he was kind, professional, and easy to work with. He made sure our vision was brought to life and even sent us all the playlists beforehand so we could review as much or as little as we preferred. We had so many people come up to us at the wedding and tell us how awesome the music was! We had the perfect wedding, in large part, because of DJ Dayve. We cannot recommend him enough, so if you are looking to have fun, dance the night away, and have the best memories from your wedding reception – DJ Dayve is the DJ for you 😊Sent on 06/24/2019

Literally the best DJ we could have asked for.
Dayve was the most prepared, professional, communicative and awesome of any vendor I’ve ever worked with. When I initially emailed him to inquire about his services, I heard back from him immediately. We set up a meeting and had a wonderful in-person meeting with him in DC (he even bought us our coffees, what a guy). I didn’t even need to meet with other DJs – we knew that Dayve was perfect for us. In the weeks and months leading up to the day, Dayve proved to be everything we thought he’d be – he had spreadsheets that broke up the day into sections, making sure we got all the music that we wanted and none of the music that we didn’t. He talked us through the day multiple times, making sure we were as prepared as we could possibly be. On the day itself, he was incredible and we had an absolute banger of a wedding reception. The dance floor was full from the first moment until the last moment. I can’t say enough good things about Dayve, honestly. He gave us exactly the vibe we wanted, everything sounded great, looked great, he put on a great show for us. He’s the man, and you should absolutely book him.Sent on 06/11/2019

Best Event Entertainer in SWFL!
Start to finish Dave was THE BEST! He came highly recommended by our wedding planner and the wedding websites even before we hired him. My husband was very invested in the music from the beginning of planning and he wanted the best in SWFL and Dave did not disappoint. He is extremely organized, personable, professional and knowledgeable. He was very flexible when we made a last minute change to the location of our cocktail hour! He planned the music for our whole day and kept everyone on the dance floor. Literally the dance floor was never empty! He kept the energy high and without a doubt, we could not have found a better entertainer for our wedding day. And not to mention, he's super cool!Sent on 05/01/2019
HIRE DJ DAYVE! Don’t even think, just do it! You won’t be disappointed!

Gotta Hire DJ Dayve!!
Fantastic DJ! DJDayve is organized, thoughtful, energetic, talented, attentive, looked wonderful up there, had great lights and most importantly great music! All of the guests at our LaPlaya celebration were very impressed, including a guest who runs a dance school. She said DJDayve is the best she’s heard. Flawless transitions between songs and he was a perfect master of ceremonies. The best part? People just kept dancing!Sent on 04/18/2019

Dj dayve is the best
Bottom line – you NEED DJ Dayve if you want the wedding of a lifetime! My wedding would not have been the amazing experience it was without him! From the very beginning I felt like he was 100% focused on providing a process that was personalized, easy, and fun to create the perfect playlist for our big day and little did I know – he would provide so much more valuable insight than just what music to play. Not only did DJ Dayve help to create a timeline before any of my other vendors, he also went above and beyond by looking into details for my benefit – for example, on the night of my wedding he noticed that I had scheduled speeches to begin at 7:10pm but had my videographer leaving at 7:00pm so he quickly adjusted our plans so that I could get video of the speeches too! What DJ takes the time to make sure the bride and groom get the most of all their vendors?! It was amazing!!! His vibe is professional yet kind (which is everything you will want during the stress of wedding planning) and his DJing skills are the BEST. I was thrilled to hear that on my wedding night my friends stayed to dance long after my new husband and I went back to our room. I could not be happier that DJ Dayve was the first vendor I booked (jump on booking him! He is in high demand!) and I HIGHLY recommend him for anyone out there looking to hire a DJ for their event. Thank you again, Dayve!Sent on 04/13/2019

A must for your wedding!
I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Dayve was to work with for our wedding. My husband and I were both were mainly focused on the music for our day and I can honestly say what Dayve did for us fully exceeded our expectations.
First, we were planning our wedding from afar so the fact that Dayve scheduled time to video chat throughout the planning process was very comforting. He was beyond prepared for every meeting and utilized technology in an extremely effective manner. From the second he pulled out an excel spreadsheet, I knew we were in good hands.
Second, Dayve is beyond kind and professional. It is clear he knows what he is doing. My husband and I have an eclectic and vast love of music. We provided guidance on what we wanted and the sample playlists created by Dayve showed us he understood where we were going with the atmosphere. He also offered great suggestions and helped us organize a timeline, which as a bride, is one last thing to worry about so was so appreciated.
Lastly, the day of was unreal. Dayve handled our ceremony flawlessly. The cocktail hour music to dinner to the actual dancing was perfect. I should put it this way - A DJ that can transition a Celine Dion song request to Busta Rhymes says a lot. Our guests still say the music was the best part of the wedding and the reason I always hear it was best wedding they have ever been to. Everyone was on the dancefloor all night long and I wish we could have kept the party going.
Dayve is a must book for your day. I am so thankful we chose him as he truly made our wedding day memorable. Thank you for everything Dayve!Sent on 07/25/2019

We hired DJ Dayve off a preferred vendors list given to us by our venue since we were planning the wedding from Maryland. The first time we spoke with Dayve on the phone we knew he was the right DJ for our wedding. He was so upbeat and helpful, walking us through every detail and moment. When we weren't sure about songs to use for certain parts of the wedding, he gave suggestions and playlists to listen to for inspiration.Sent on 02/22/2019
We spoke with Dayve multiple times between booking and the day of our wedding which was very helpful and alleviated any concerns about not being able to meet face to face until the day of.
Dayve provided music on the beach for our ceremony, on the terrace for cocktail hour and dinner, and then on the dance floor. He played any song that was requested and really go the crowd going. Everyone loved how lively he was and that he was dancing behind the booth the whole night.
We could not have been an happier with DJ Dayve and would HIGHLY recommend him to make your day as special as ours was.

Stop searching! Dj dayve is the best!
WOW!!! I don’t even know where to begin! Dj Dayve was nothing but the BEST. He took into account every little detail (every dance, every name, every moment) . He is so patient, organized, and responds quickly to emails! We had one request, the dance floor needs to be full at all times and IT WAS!!! Almost a month later and people are STILL talking about how great the DJ was and how much fun they had. From the uplighting, music, dj booth, and our names on the dance floor… everything was absolutely perfect. My husband and I are SO happy with Dj Dayve. If we have any other event there will be NO HESITATION hiring Dj Dayve again! Dj Dayve truly is one of a kind. You will not be sorry!Sent on 02/14/2019
