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.

Best DJ!! We are so thrilled that we got to work with DJ Dayve. Our guests at our wedding still can't stop raving about how incredible the DJ was. DJ Dayve was on point with timing, announcements, and the music of course. I would recommend DJ Dayve for any occasion! Thank You Dayve!!Sent on 03/26/2019

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

Thank you so much!
We just had our vow renewal ceremony/party this past weekend in South Beach (138 people) and we are SO glad we had DJ Dayve as such a huge part of it. He DJ’ed for one of our friend’s weddings in Naples back in February and it was the party of a life time. So when it came time to pick our DJ, I reached out to him. He was super responsive, so organized and helpful and very reasonably priced. We had a video meeting and discussed the details and he had such good questions to help him figure out our style and type of music we liked. Leading up to the event, I kept telling my husband how he was the best vendor because he was so professional, organized and chill. I actually used his event timeline as my own because it was so good, and I hadn’t even started my own yet. As it got closer, he had a thorough questionnaire to give him more information and ideas of our taste and what we wanted for specific parts of the night. From that and a couple other video meetings, he built out full playlists from the ceremony to the last song of the night. Once we went through the playlists (which were spot on), I basically told him I loved the vibe and how pumped up everyone was from my friend’s wedding back in February and he took that and on the day of, everything was amazing. He was so calm and friendly, made us feel very relaxed and the music was perfect. When we had little changes through the day/night he handled them so smoothly. No one would ever know the difference. Everyone was out of the dance floor and having the time of their lives. I literally couldn’t stop jumping up and down in my wedding dress. I was so happy. DJ Dayve made our day extra special and I would do it all over again with him if I could. Trust me, you want him to be part of your special day. He’s the best! Thank you DJ Dayve!!Sent on 01/17/2019

the best dj ever!
We would HIGHLY recommend DJ Dayve! I can't say enough good things about him. If you are hesitant to book a DJ over a band, don't be! I was scared my guests would not stay on the dance floor the whole time & they did because the music he played was so great! He is so nice & easy to work with as well. I was clueless on what music we needed & walks through the whole process with you. If you are debating booking him, just do it! You won't regret it!Sent on 01/23/2019

DJ Dayve was just the DJ at our New Year’s Eve wedding, and we cannot say enough good things about our experience with him. One of our biggest compliments from our night was the music, and how the DJ kept the flow of the night going.
The music is one of the most important parts of a wedding. We originally had our heart set on a band, but with limited space for equipment it was recommended that we look at DJs. After talking to DJ Dayve and seeing his professionalism we instantly forgot about a band all together. He did a lot of things for our music that we couldn’t have done with a band:
- He moved easily from the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and then to the reception with no awkward gaps without music.
- Our ceremony music was edited perfectly so the chorus to every song was played in full, and everyone made it down the aisle without an awkward cut off from the music.
- Our music to enter the reception was edited so our bridal party could pick the songs they were introduced with. This made it fun for them, and entertaining for our guests to watch.
DJ Dayve is quick to respond to any questions you have, knows when to step in for advice and suggestions, and can handle your parents when they want to play music that no one else knows ;)
If you’re looking for someone who can get everyone up and dancing all night I would definitely recommend booking DJ Dayve. After we signed him for our big day there was never a doubt or worry that our wedding music wouldn’t be perfect.

My husband and I are both dancers so we were definitely picky when it came to the DJ and music. Dayve exceeded our expectations and was by far the most organized of all our vendors. He made everything very simple and fun! We highly recommend Dayve to anyone and everyone!Sent on 01/02/2019

If you hire anyone else, you're doing it wrong...
DJ Dayve is hands down, the most talented wedding DJ I've ever seen. I was incredibly grateful we could get him booked for our wedding & we were certainly not disappointed. He had the dance floor overflowed all night. Everyone had such an amazing time; highly recommended. His work ethic, appreciation for music, & "crowd reading" skills are incomparable to any other wedding DJ I have ever seen. Thank you Dave! Let me know if you're ever in NJ, we would literally create an event just so you can DJ it :)Sent on 11/12/2018

Make sure DJ Dayve is available for your big day!
From the first meeting with DJ Dayve my wife and I could not wait until our cocktail hour and reception because we knew we had the best DJ/emcee you could find. David was professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire process and made it extremely easy to plan the music portion of the wedding. We utilized DJ Dayve for our cocktail hour, and he custom mixed a tropical/EDM playlist for us resulting in our wedding guests not wanting to leave the cocktail hour. All of our guests would not stop raving about the music and lighting during our reception and how much fun they had dancing. DJ Dayve puts a lot of work and time into his craft to ensure that your big day is better than you could ever imagine. If DJ Dayve isn't available for your date, I recommend you reschedule!Sent on 05/06/2019

The best DJ!
We are SO glad we chose DJ Dayve as our music vendor for our wedding day. Dayve is extremely organized, talented, and fun to work with! My husband and I are pretty picky with music, so this was one of THE most important factors for us on our wedding day. Knowing this, we especially loved getting to work with Dayve leading up to our wedding as we meticulously perfected our playlists with him. Dayve was patient with our requests and helpful with recommendations (like when we were feeling super stumped on selecting songs for the ceremony music...he sent over a full folder with song options for us to select). More so, Dayve can easily cater to different music styles -- from salsa, EDM, pop, oldies...he managed to squeeze in every single one of our music requests. During our wedding night people kept coming up to us to compliment us on our DJ - as thrilled as we were to hear it, we were not surprised at all as we know Dayve is THE BEST. Looking back on our wedding day, I love remembering how full the dance floor was all night long -- everyone had a great time and danced the night away!Sent on 11/15/2018

Great Dance Party - Guests Raved About It
DJ Dayve was the DJ at our wedding during October 2018. I received his contact information from our wedding coordinator, and interviewed DJ Dayve via video call as he’s based in Florida and I live in Washington DC. We had actually been conducting video interviews with several DJs, but I was immediately impressed by DJ Dayve’s professionalism and organization skills during our interview. DJ Davye also shared with us a some sample recording of different weddings and events he’d DJ’ed, which had the modern, energetic and most importantly, fun vibe we wanted for our wedding.Sent on 10/18/2018
DJ Davye was very helpful during the entire process, where his organizational prowess was very helpful. I’m very into music and I was very pleased he has an organized method for capturing ALL of my music and specific song preferences that was very streamlined and ensured that the music played that at the wedding that felt personal and was my bride and my taste.
In terms of his actual performance during the wedding itself (ceremony, cocktail hour, reception/dancing), DJ Dayve was excellent. No issues whatsoever - music was always on cue, and did a great job with brief intros and announcement.
When it came to dancing, I trusted DJ Dayve’s judgment on music that would get the crowd up and dancing - and he delivered. DJ Davye did a great job balancing out the music that had all ages up and dancing - and (per request) managed an excellent transition to more modern hits as the night went on. Not only that - but DJ Dayve doesn’t sit back and press play - he’s up in front of the crowd in his DJ booth and it felt as if you’re in a club!
I even received tons of feedback from guests on how excellent our music and dancing was - much more so than your typical wedding!

DJ Dayve was absolutely great at our wedding! The whole process was very painless compared to other big wedding day decisions. He always responded back in a professional timely manner and was great with letting us know what to expect with every virtual meeting . The day of the wedding is when you truly see how magical music can make your wedding day feel. I'll never forget the emotion that ran through me the second I heard him begin the music for me to walk down the aisle. During the reception, everyone stayed on the dance floor and danced their booties off. He did great with reading the guests minds on what they were feeling. The next day I had numerous compliments on my DJ choice. I would highly recommend him for your wedding or any event in general!Sent on 10/22/2018

True Master of Ceremony
DJ Dayve was definitely our best vendor for our wedding, hands down. He was awesome when it came to the music played during the wedding, which is crucial to a good dj, but working with DJ Dayve was so much more than that. From the beginning, he took time to get to know us and what we were looking for in the ceremony and reception, and was extremely organized. He made sure that every detail of the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception was planned and timed accordingly, and provided lots of advice on best practices. He was flexible with his schedule for calls and site visits, and was very responsive to any questions we had, as well as friendly reminders on outstanding details we needed to decide on. Also, the uplighting he provided for the tent was a great touch.Sent on 10/17/2018
All in all, DJ Dayve was professional, courteous, and organized, which are all crucial when working with a vendor. Plus, he runs a great party!

DJ Dayve was hands down our best vendor! We were so lucky to have worked with him and he was highly recommended by our wedding venue. He made the wedding planning process easy as he is so organized and experienced with weddings. We actually looked forward to our conversations and meetings with DJ Dayve -- he was always prepared and very efficient. When we needed to have 2 of our wedding songs cut for our first dance and the father/daughter dance and he was able to provide the cut versions, as requested, THE SAME DAY we had asked! He even detailed our entire timeline with all of our music requests and it was seamless the night of the wedding. From the start we knew we could trust DJ Dayve and he certainly delivered on the wedding day as all of our guests were on the dance floor all night!! DJ Dayve is incredible and overall a great guy. Our wedding would have not been the same without him. We highly recommend him if you want to have the time of your life. Thanks so much DJ DAYVE!!Sent on 09/02/2018

DJ Dayve was absolutely phenomenal!!!!! He did an excellent job MCing and DJing at our wedding. We knew as soon as we booked him that we would have nothing to worry about when it came to music for our wedding. We live in San Francisco and Dayve followed up and scheduled Skype meetings with us regularly throughout the entire process. He showed professionalism and helped guide us through picking music and organizing them accordingly. He listened to our suggestions and put together an absolutely killer playlist, we did not see a single person not 'getting down' on the dance floor. I had so many people approach me after the wedding and complement the DJ. Thank you Dayve for giving us an unforgettable night!!! We also highly recommend getting the extra lights during the dancing portion, it really made all the difference!Sent on 08/31/2018
