We Had a Blast with Danny!
Danny did a fabulous job as DJ/MC of our wedding weekend! I am not ashamed to admit that music was the part of my wedding I was most particular (ahem, Bridezilla) about, and Danny was able to roll with it and bring to life the perfect “soundtrack” that I had imagined. We had three days of events during which Danny set up equipment all over the large private estate that was our venue. Between mics, speakers, silent disco, and a video projector; Danny made it all happen seamlessly. His energy is upbeat and friendly, but also very calming. He was also flexible as our plans changed and evolved throughout the planning process due to COVID. I’d highly recommend hiring him for your wedding or party. He’ll make sure you have a blast!Sent on 11/15/2020

Danny is the best!
Danny DJ'd and Mc'd my wedding this past weekend. It was great!! All of my guests and myself were on the dance floor to the very end. Danny was very attentive to all my requests and need. My wedding was my best day ever thanks in part to the great music Danny provided us.Sent on 10/08/2019
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Thank you Angela for your great review! We loved playing some Persian music, mixed with some English and Spanish. All the best to you and Kaveh.

My husband and I got married in Solvang in September and it was the perfect day! Ramiro was extremely professional and kept the hits coming! He was respectful of our list and was totally in tune with the energy in the room! Working with Danny and Ramiro was incredible and I highly recommend them!Sent on 11/18/2019

Amazing Wedding DJ !
Danny / Elite was a perfect DJ choice for our wedding! We looked at a few options here in Santa Barbara, and were confident and excited with working with Danny after our first call. He helped make the whole process easy and stress-free, and more importantly brought great music to our event - we had all our guests dancing the entire night! I was also able to give music, genre, and even specific song recommendations prior, and was obviously thrilled to hear those throughout our big day. We both would definitely recommend enlisting Danny or Elite for any of your DJ needs!Sent on 12/03/2019

Thank you Danny!
Danny DJ'd and MC'd our wedding this past weekend. It went so smoothly, the music was great, the mic's were always in place on time, and we had multiple people comment to us on how great the music was and how well he read the room in knowing what to play next. Danny set up a 30 minute call the week prior to the wedding to make sure we were all on the same page as far as the timeline went, and to make sure he knew if there were any particular important things to us that he could assist with. I would absolutely recommend him for other weddings and events!Sent on 08/16/2019
Should also mention that his online planning tool is very helpful and easy to use. He has a massive database of songs to include that you can easily pick for different parts of the wedding or mark that no music should be associated with (processional, bouqet toss, first dance, dinner, cake cutting, etc.). I had an obscure song that wasn't included in his initial database but he said it was no problem to download and was able to play it which I very much appreciated.
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Thank you Keith for your rave review! You and Rita were such a pleasure to work with. Loved seeing you two on the dance floor! Have a great honeymoon and wishing you all the best in you new life together.
Mandi · Married on 06/23/2019
Perfect DJ! You will not regret!
We worked with Danny for our event and he was awesome! They have an online planning form where you put what music you want to play for each thing like first dance, father/daughter dance, cake cutting, etc. You can also say which songs you for sure want played and which ones you don’t. So we filled that out a couple weeks before the wedding. Then the week of the wedding, Danny called us to go over the forms. We discussed the kind of music to play at dinner and during the dance portion of the evening. We also wanted a rather long song for our first dance but didn’t want to dance the whole time, so Danny sent us over a few different cuts of the song to make it shorter. He also remixed a slower song we wanted for our grand entrance. The songs he played at the dance portion were perfect. He was easily able to tell which songs people were enjoying dancing to and played those for longer. My husband, the guests, and I had a ball dancing all night long. Could not recommend him enough!Sent on 08/05/2019
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Thank you Mandi & Ryan for your kind words! You two were so much fun to work with! Wish you two all the best.
Lindsay · Married on 07/28/2018
My husband and I got married in July at an estate in Santa Ynez. After reading A LOT of reviews and doing our research we hired Danny from Elite Disc Jockeys. Danny was AMAZING. He was extremely responsive, patient, helpful, and prioritized our wants/desires. I was a very hands on bride and Danny allowed me to be able to relax and not worry about any of the MC or sound logistics. Before even signing the contract Danny was willing to do a walkthrough of the venue and help us determine what equipment would be best, how we would be able to repurpose sound systems, and most importantly how we could have exactly what we wanted within our budget! Danny even spent time before our weeding to sit down with us face to face to talk about what vibe we wanted (PARTY), any must play songs, timing etc. We had an amazing dance floor/ party atmosphere at our wedding and it’s all attributed to Elite Disc Jockeys. Overall: HIGHLY recommend Elite Disc Jockeys!!!!!!!!Sent on 08/22/2018

Muhammed · Married on 06/30/2018
Danny Vasquez was our DJ for our big night in Santa Barbara on July 1, 2018. From the first day we met to discuss his DJ services, Danny was ears wide open to listen to what we wanted for our wedding. He added his experience to the area we needed to fill in the gaps musically, and was very respectful and professional. Danny communicated the details clearly in plnning meetings and provided a great website to organize the playlist. Danny stuck to the plan we agreed on and didn’t try to take over the party with his mic and personality, which is exactly what we were worried about based on other DJs at weddings we’ve attended. This is not to say he didn’t feel out the crowd and play the right music at the right time. Danny was flawless in his transitions and song selections. We also had Danny uplighting which was very nice for our outside venue. We wouldn’t recommend anyone else for your music needs at a wedding!Sent on 08/06/2018
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Muhammed, thank you so much for your awesome review! It was an honor to work with you and Sarah, your family and friends were amazing! Loved how involved you were with your music requests.

Christian · Married on 10/20/2017
Danny was great to work with throughout the entire pre-planning process. He was friendly, flexible and we felt he really cared about making our event a (fun) success. His website to select music was easy to use. During the event Danny was really good about keeping the energy going on the dance floor. We highly recommend using Elite Disc Jockeys!Sent on 01/01/2018

Lauren · Married on 10/07/2017
Danny of Elite Disc Jockey was an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding. Both my husband and I are really into music and were nervous about having a DJ, but Danny made everything go smoothly. He listened to our recommendations and requests for songs, made some of his own based on what we had put together, and helped with the most epic recessional song. I plan to use them for any future events that we have. Thank you SO much Danny for making our wedding day a dream come true. The music tied the whole event together, and we couldn't have asked for anything more.Sent on 12/29/2017
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Thank you Lauren and Sam for taking the time to leave such a great review, I really appreciate it! It was a pleasure to work with you two, I loved that you we so into music details. I look forward to working with you two again! All my best, Danny Vasquez

Chip · Married on 05/27/2017
Danny of Elite Disc Jockeys was a wonderful wedding DJ. He's very professional, easy to communicate with and knows how to keep a crowd dancing all night. From our first phone call with him, we knew he was the DJ for our wedding. His website is super easy to use for music suggestions/requests and he has a huge database of music. Our wedding was a ton of fun and a big reason is because Danny kept the party going on the dance floor. It was packed the entire time. He also did audio for our ceremony, which was great and because he mixed the ceremony audio on his iPad, there was no equipment in the way of the photos for the ceremony. We also really really liked that he wasn't cheesy and did an excellent job as an MC of the wedding as well. We were so happy to work with Danny and would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ.Sent on 06/06/2017

Allegra · Married on 05/20/2017
Danny is THE BEST. Music was so important to us, so being able to feel like we could collaborate with our DJ was crucial! He made himself available to us to discuss the mood and feel we wanted from the dinner to the last song. I dont think I left the dance floor once. We truly enjoyed every second with him!Sent on 06/24/2017
Elite Disc Jockeys's reply:Thank you for your praise Allegra! You and Kevin were such a pleasure to work with, I had so much fun at your wedding reception! I wish you two all the best.
Jack · Married on 03/18/2017
Danny was fantastic. My wife and I had a lot of opinions on what we wanted to hear during the ceremony and cocktail hour and especially on what we wanted to dance to during the reception, and Danny was as accommodating as possible. He did some great edits of songs for some our entrance music, and his online portal was a great touch for communicating with him as well as for picking music we wanted to hear (or not hear!). Our guests had a great time dancing, and a number of them commented on how well Danny did reading the crowd and playing just the right song at the right moment.Sent on 04/22/2017
I would definitely work with Danny again.

We were so happy to have Danny as our DJ for our wedding day. He was so professional and he has the wedding day down to a science! He really personalized our day exactly how we wanted it and delivered the best music! Our guests were literally on the dance floor 30 minutes past our intended end time craving more from him... He was PERFECT! He also provided the microphones and speakers for our outdoor ceremony and everyone commented how great it was to hear every detail of the ceremony <3Sent on 11/09/2016

Samantha · Married on 08/27/2016
Danny is the BEST!! We didn't talk to any other DJs after our initial phone call with Danny. He was incredibly helpful, professional, and kind during the whole planning process. I was planning my wedding from a distance so I was very grateful Danny was so accommodating when it came to working with my schedule. He made sure to be available when I was in town and worked with me to set up phone meetings when I was unable to meet in person. He provided me with a lot of advice and input as far as music and even with layout/event flow during the site visit. It was comforting to have someone so experienced because my wedding was the first event I have every planned. When it came to most of the music all I had to say was "I trust you." My guests had so much fun dancing the night away! Danny really knows how to read a crowd. He also was able to make the processional song longer to ensure all the wedding party was able to make it down the aisle before the song ended. Overall, we are so happy we decided to book Danny and highly recommend him for anyone planning a special event.Sent on 09/08/2016

Courtney · Married on 08/06/2016
Danny Vasquez of Elite Disc Jockeys was our wedding ceremony and reception DJ and I would highly recommend him to anyone in the greater Santa Barbara area looking for an event DJ! He was referred to us by a friend so I was initially biased when talking to other local DJ’s. However, after a few phone screens it was apparent that Danny at Elite Disc Jockeys was hands-down the best choice beyond referral. Our phone conversations with him from the start were exciting, filled with collaboration between the both of us. Every time my husband and I had an idea for a song, we emailed it to Danny for advice and he always responded promptly. We wanted to walk down the aisle to violin-covers of rap songs and we could only find them on YouTube, but this was no issue at all for Danny. He found the exact versions we wanted and created perfectly sound audio files from them (now my Mom wants to listen to ‘Still D.R.E.’ violin-covers cause Danny made it sound so beautiful!). We also had several homemade audio tracks that our friends had recorded that we wanted to be used intermittently throughout the night. He not only mastered the tracks to make them sound as clean as possible, he found ways to sneak the songs in between modern music and made the surprise all the more exciting. Danny MC’ed our entire event flawlessly, remembering little touches that we spoke about here and there, and with complete professionalism. I can’t wait to tell everyone I know looking for a DJ in SB about Danny, and look forward to dancing the night away to his amazing DJ skills again.Sent on 09/09/2016

Danielle · Married on 06/04/2016
We loved Danny!! We spoke with a handful of other DJ’s prior to booking, but we liked the energy he brought to the conversation and instantly picked him. He understood that every wedding is as unique as the couple; he worked with us to ensure that the music and flow fit the overall vibe we were going for, and also kept guests going all night. More than that, Danny went above and beyond working with the vendors and our planner to ensure the entire wedding day went smoothly, including helping our family members get around the wedding site (he saved the day for Grandma!). We are thrilled with our choice in Danny and cannot say enough good things about him – we highly recommend him!!Sent on 06/09/2016

I am confident if you choose to work with Danny you will be happy you did. We had an all around excellent experience. Leading up to the event, our interactions were low touch, yet productive. Danny communicated clearly about what was happening and would be needed from us. He also had good suggestions for order of events and how to make the event flow smoothly. On the day of the event Danny was entirely self sufficient in getting everything setup. During the event Danny was perfect - kept things going, read the crowd perfectly and overall nailed it.

Danny was FANTASTIC! All of the communication prior to our wedding was incredibly quick, and he has fantastic taste in music! He is also very reasonably priced, and offers five star service. I also really love that he posts pictures from his weddings on Instagram... You can tell that he is really passionate about his job! The website form for building your wedding music is so easy to use and helpful, and there is no song he can't get! He did a wonderful job from the ceremony all the way through the end of the night--truly a seamless job. He read the crowd very well and made sure to balance what we requested with what was ultimately keeping everyone on the dance floor. Our guests all had a fabulous time, and we really could have partied for another few hours with the great music Danny played. I 100% recommend Elite Disc Jockeys :)Sent on 11/04/2015

We hired Danny at Elite Disc Jockeys to be our DJ for our October 10th wedding in Santa Barbara and could not be happier with the service we received! Danny was such a pleasure to work with from the moment we spoke on the phone to the wedding day. He made everything so easy, responded to us very quickly when we had questions, gave us lots of ideas and suggestions and is just a very friendly, easy going guy who is fun to be around. He played background music during dinner, made announcements and kept the party going on the dance floor all night. He helped make everything flow smoothly on the wedding day and we didn't have to worry about anything. He is a true professional and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ!Sent on 12/21/2015

Danny was an excellent DJ for our wedding. Very easy-going but still well organized and professional. He made sure to consult with us a few times (once over the phone and a twice in person) and was always quick to respond to any questions we had via email. He matched the vibe of the wedding perfectly with his playlists and incorporated our requests and our guests requests in a way that made everyone very happy. He was incredibly versatile with his music selection and had both young and old on the dance floor. My wife and I had an incredible wedding and Danny was a big part of making it happen...thanks Danny!Sent on 07/07/2015
